Nature Saves Heredities That Work, Rejects Those That Don’t

africa-171315_1280

Shielding any organism from reality only makes it weak

If there is one constant on this 4.5 billion year old rock we find ourselves inhabiting, it’s that nature saves those heredities that work, and rejects those that don’t. The game we are playing is one of survival. If one is searching for the meaning of life, this is about as real as it gets. Survival is what our entire lives are about, for life exists to propagate life.

This is why modern liberalism and feminism are a blight and abomination on the human species. They’re both suicidal. These ideologies push the insane ideals that life isn’t worth living, that certain ethnic groups are evil while others possess superior virtue, and that babies are nasty stumbling blocks on the road to living a gluttonous and avaricious lifestyle.

Remember, gluttony and avarice are two of the seven deadlies in Western myth and religion for a reason. Together with other so-called “deadly sins” they’re killing the West. Incidentally, the West also has pride and sloth in spades.

As a result of the total disregard for the importance of family and the continuity of the human species it represents, the West has devolved into a death cult in that it believes acquisition of useless material possessions and conspicuous consumption of everything from meals in a restaurant to box cutter sedans to iPhones is the be-all, end all of human existence.

Meantime, the flower of procreation wilts and dies away, like the eggs in so many Anglobitchs’ wombs. White people are literally fading away, dying off the planet. Let that be a warning to other ethnic groups who would follow in West’s vaingloriousness.

Feminism is destined to go extinct, and it will take all those who practice it or even tolerate it along with it. Designed as a population control technique in the 1960s, it has morphed into a metastasizing cancer.

Only the fittest will survive this latest shit test of nature.

Every animal on the planet has the will to survive, except modern day Westerners who are willingly committing suicide

Survival of the Fittest

Rather than follow the rest of society into destruction, some of us realize the intrinsic happiness family will bring and the biological imperative reproduction is.

The real reason feminists are marching in the street in the Trump era has more to do with mass female hysteria brought on by childlessness than it does any grievances that have merit. The Anglobitch is among the coddled individuals in human history, and her exorbitant, Empowered™ lifestyle means she now has the power to destroy not only herself but the very family her mother and grandmother cherished.

And that is exactly what she is doing, for in no country on the planet where there is a historical white majority are there enough babies being born to sustain the population.

This is the root of her misery. For women exist to create and nourish the next generation of human beings, not to mindlessly shuffle bureaucratic paperwork around or labor in vain like a man for resources. She knows not why she is miserable and unfulfilled with the things the world told her would make her happy. But this is why. She is missing the glory of motherhood.

That said, rather than try to save them from themselves, we must let the fools’ gene pools die with them, and be content with the fact we are the men who will survive this latest shit test from nature. We will find the women who have not succumbed to the sicknesses of the West to be the propagators of our genes.

The future belongs to those whose children will be in it. The future belongs to us. Herbert Spencer, who coined the phrase “Survival of the Fittest” knew the game well:

The wise man must remember that while he is a descendant of the past, he is a parent of the future. The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly, is to fill the world with fools.

Spencer would no doubt be mortified at mass scale cuckoldry being placed on the backs of literally millions of would-be fathers, and the propagation of fools and weaklings the ensuing welfare state causes.

Disturbingly, the mindless blob of protoplasm that makes up most of America, the unthinking and unquestioning Beta males who are the tax base the slave masters at the apex of the corporate-government complex depend on, trudge on through mediocre, increasingly sexless, and statistically sterile lives.

The gynocracy gorges itself on the largesse created by these unwanted men. Spencer knew what this system really represents.

All socialism involves slavery. That which fundamentally distinguishes the slave is that he labours under coercion to satisfy another’s desires.

Indeed, the modern Beta male labors to satisfy the demands of a massively bloated government, of feminists who benefit from his labor and the tax money a gynocentric beast steals from him, and yet he lives an existence as a loathed individual. He is the subject of contempt of those who exploit him.

For no one respects a slave.

Throw off the chains that would make you a lesser man than your ancestors

Be Bold, Be Bold, and Everywhere be Bold

Let no one tell you having a family and having continuity is outdated or no longer important. Those are words sold to slaves.

A man without posterity is a man who lives a dead-end lifestyle, and he betrays the death-defying survival instincts of better men than him who found a way to survive and thrive in such catastrophes as wars, plagues, famine, natural disaster, and heartless women of centuries and millenia past.

The modern man is much too coddled, and perhaps that is the problem to begin with. His survival instincts have been dulled by his success in the battle with nature. He has plenty of eat and a plethora of comfort maximizing gadgets, but his spirit is empty. He’s lost his mojo. He must realize this is a battle that never ends. He not only must fight the bitch known as Mother Nature, he must also fight other men who only see him as a tool to use for their own self-aggrandizement and glory. Being an obedient slave, although one that is treated decently, is not the life of a real man.

What a shame it truly is that a magnificent 4.5 billion year old epic of genetic survival ends with weak men and brainwashed women. But the strong amongst us will survive, and even thrive in this environment.

The new modern man must never succumb to the wishes of his masters, but remain loyal to his wishes and to the only constant that ever mattered on planet Earth. That constant is survival.

Men have moved heaven and earth in the past to ensure their genetic legacy does not die with them, a failure that would be totally disrespectful of his ancestors who survived the worst the universe had to throw at them with aplomb.

For I can tell you from experience there is nothing that lights a fire inside a man as looking into the eyes of his son or daughter, a new human being ready to take on all the possibilities and the pitfalls of existence anew. Knowing that he not only survived the test, but he passed it with flying colors as he captured a sexy woman of his choosing and she willingly carried his legacy in her womb for nine months.

That is a heredity that works. The ones that don’t will lay by the wayside of death. Creating beautiful and strong progeny is the most satisfying thing a mentally and physically healthy man and woman can ever accomplish in life.

There is nothing quite so beautiful in life, gentlemen, as your own children. Material possessions, money, and power are empty accolades if you have no posterity to look you in the eye with respect and love when you fade away into the blackness that pervades this entire universe.

Manosphere Philosophy: Lost in the Vastness of Space and Time

earth-1149733_1280

Looking outward from our tiny world with a Red Pill philosophy

Looking beyond our world for clues as to what the true meaning of life, if any, there actually is, we awaken to find ourselves lost in the midst of a vast universe on “a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam.” The universe is much older and bigger than anyone ever imagined, and it seems at times hostile and at times indifferent to human cares and concerns.

Men know this instinctively, while women never realize it. They never have to, for they’re not faced with the same challenges to survive and procreate that men are. Men must learn how cold and careless the universe is for there wil be no safety net to save him, but there will be men lining up to be White Knights saving a damsel in distress.

Focusing on our tiny world for a moment, trying to make sense of a world in which everything is a myth or a lie, in which women claim to be victims when they’re actually users and abusers of male utility value, and in which those who claim to have the loftiest aspirations for mankind actually display the most repulsive human behavior (i.e. the elite and political classes) is not easy.

Many find religion to be a refuge. For others, religions are only palliatives to ease the pain of living in a world in which survival at any cost has been the prime directive for 4.5 billion years.

For others, only rationality will do. Here’s a look at the hard and inconvenient facts science has revealed about the universe we have found ourselves fighting to survive.

cosmiccalendar

If the entire history of the universe happened over the course of one year, here’s how it would play out (click image to enlarge)

We’re New to the Scene

Humans haven’t been around very long at all. In fact, advanced life hasn’t been around long enough to be significant in the grand scheme of cosmic time. When one condenses the entire history of earth down into the equivalent of one year, the briefness of our existence is thus revealed. Carl Sagan pioneered this method with his concept of the Cosmic Calendar:

The Cosmic Calendar is a method to visualize the chronology of the universe, scaling its current age of 13.8 billion years to a single year in order to help intuition in for pedagogical purposes in science education or popular science.

In this visualization, the Big Bang took place at the beginning of January 1 at midnight, and the current moment maps onto the end of December 31 just before midnight. At this scale, there are 437.5 years per second, 1.575 million years per hour, and 37.8 million years per day.

We find ourselves making our brief appearance on the scene in the last minutes of the last day of the year of the 4.5 billion year Cosmic Calendar. Humans appear on the scene only in the last couple million years, or the last seconds of the last minute of the last hour of December 31.

A single human life equates to one blink of an eye when cosmic history is condensed down into a year for illustrative purposes.

We are just now making our brief appearance on the cosmic stage, on a planet in which well over 99% of all species who ever lived are extinct.

Social engineering schemes designed by elites are just one of many ways our species’ time on earth could be limited

Are We a Flash in the Pan

Some call it evolutionary baggage. There is reason to believe our existence in the world could be abbreviated, thanks to a number of factors. Perhaps the most troubling of these is social engineering, which has reached a troubling level of manipulation of human behavior in the early 21st century.

We now have a state that seeks to groom worker bees and sexless androgynes from birth, as Cultural Marxism moves to break up the human family permanently and subjugate men eternally. This will no doubt weaken the human species, perhaps beyond the point of repair.

None other than Nikola Tesla warned against this troubling possibility, which modern social engineers working at the behest of the elite are foisting upon the West with rabid fervor.

Our civilization will sink to a state like that which is found among the bees, ants and other insects – a state wherein the male is ruthlessly killed off. In this matriarchal empire which will be established the female rules. As the female predominates, the males are at her mercy. The male is considered important only as a factor in the general scheme of the continuity of life.

Men indeed have become nothing but sperm donors and laborers rather than stakeholders in society over the past century. Male incentives and male ingenuity are also being extinguished by this plague upon humanity. Tesla continues:

Woman’s independence and her cleverness in obtaining what she wants in the business world is breaking down man’s spirit of independence. The old fire he once experienced at being able to achieve something that would compel and hold a woman’s devotion is turning to ashes.

We often hear violence will end the saga of the human species from liberals, but the threat from authoritarianism – which abuses science for personal profit and gain rather than using it to advance the human condition is perhaps an even bigger and more insidious threat to our long-term survival.

“What is your advice to young writers?” Bukowski responds: “Drink, fuck and smoke plenty of cigarettes.”

Best to Enjoy What Time We Have

As we consider these grand ideas, realizing the odds are stacked against us as we strive for long-term survival, perhaps another way to glean philosophy from science is to realize the fact everything dies. Even the sun will die someday, as it becomes a Red Giant and fades into White Dwarf status.

The message I get from the cosmos is that it is best to enjoy what limited time we have on this planet, while trying to make a positive impact on the lives of others. I do this by attempting to tell the truth about things, rather than promulgating the myths that robbed me of half my life – that women are perfect angels, men are evil sexual predators, that the government is god and has all solutions to the ails of humanity.

The West takes life way too seriously, as it reaches out towards an infinity it likely will never reach. Spengler knew this when he wrote Decline of the West. Author Charles Bukowski sums up a worthy men’s philosophy when realizing the reality of our circumstances on the cosmic stage:

We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.

More inspiring words I cannot find. Bukowski perfectly summed up the philosophy of the manosphere a full generation before it came about. Let’s endeavor to live those awesome lives, even in the face of a world and a universe not made for us.

Female Behavior, Shit Tests, and The Selfish Gene

skinny-white-girl

One shit test too many: Anglo women have pushed men over the edge

If there’s one thing a man learns about women when he literally beds hundreds of them in his own personal anthropological experiment trying to find out what makes females tick (as well as his own taste for hedonism—heh) it’s that there are no unicorns. Those with powers of keen observation and rational analysis notice women are naturally gifted with the innate behavior the philosopher Schopenhauer called dissimulation, that is the tendency to conceal their true thoughts and feelings.

When a man watches female behavior instead of listening to their words patterns begin to emerge. One of the most important patterns a man might notice is that the most powerful force in the universe is hypergamy, not compound interest as Einstein humorously stated. Hypergamy is of course the human female’s tendency to marry up (never down) in social status. Oxford-educated anthropologist Robert Briffault knew this in the 1930s, but of course Utopia-seeking Western social engineers completely ignored what made society stable in mad pursuit of magic theories that were going to fix everything.

Their egalitarian notions of some sort of sexual equality were doomed to failure, and the failure was baked right into the cake. Briffault wrote:

The female, not the male, determines all the conditions of the animal family. Where the female can derive no benefit from association with the male, no such association takes place.

That simple sentence, followed to its logical conclusion could have stopped the impending sexual disenfranchisement and subsequent disengagement of Western men from their own nations.

Briffault knew if a woman can’t use a man for something—money, social status, power or all three—she wants nothing to do with said man no matter how attractive a man he might be or how altruistic he is. A perfectly equal society is a society in which women have ZERO attraction to men, because men in such a society would be bereft of the qualities that make them attractive to women in the first place. Feminism was destined to create chaos from its inception.

Women will do anything for the seed of a top dog. Just watch as they literally faint in old videos of The Beatles and turn into total whores whenever a dominant male enters the room, or orbit actors like DiCrapio. Guys like DiCrapio look and act like douches but have the key female-attracting intoxicants: money, status, and power. (If you want to see what it’s like to be an alpha male and see the power of hypergamy in full swing, go to a country in which you have high social capital and watch how differently you are treated than when you’re in America or Europe. But, bear in mind women’s interest in you as a human being is purely an illusion.)

Feminism fails to account for the fact that removing money, status, and power from men will ultimately unleash chaos on society.

Of course, the fact the world is melting down is based not only on Utopia-seeking sociological behavior that ignores fundamental principles of anthropology. Politicians and social engineers also ignore the primacy of a relatively new concept in science known as The Selfish Gene (which incidentally led George R. Price, one of its discoverers to suicide). They formulate hypotheses about a “perfect world” then try to simulate the real world using Game Theory (not the game theory of the manosphere) which reduces people to mathematical equations social engineers then plug into computer models. These models currently tell politicians the solution to all the world’s ills is to throw everything up in the air, destroy national identities and borders, and pretend ethnic and sexual differences don’t matter in fantastical sort of New World Order that is destined for catastrophe.

The Utopians most crucially missed the implications of The Selfish Gene on male/female relations.

genes

Female enigmatic, selfish behavior is coded into their genetic makeup

The Selfish Gene

If it’s been said once, it’s been said a thousand times, nice guys finish last. But why is it that women choose dominance every time over niceness, dooming notions of sexual equality to dismal failure?

The Selfish Gene theory could explain the tendency of women not only to marry up, but to completely disregard the bottom 4/5 of men as potential suitors as The Pareto Principle suggests and eyewitness evidence in any club in America will illustrate. Here’s a simple definition of The Selfish Gene:

A lineage is expected to evolve to maximize its inclusive fitness—the number of copies of its genes passed on globally (rather than by a particular individual).

This theory is bad news for men in a sexual market that has shifted to look more like a jungle than a civilization since the advent of “women’s liberation” a.k.a. feminism. The Realtalk translation of that very effete sounding definition of The Selfish Gene works out to: Women want to fuck the winners, and they will fuck over the losers.

Women have evolved to disregard and even harbor contempt for “inferior” DNA. In a cruel world in which survival of the fittest has been the rule from day one over 4 billion years ago when life began to form in the slime, being a nice boy doesn’t cut it. Women, more than men, are beholden to the influences of The Selfish Gene, and though we may lament its effects on our sexual and familial prospects as men there are sound biological reasons women have evolved to be ruthless when it comes to choosing sexual partners.

It all comes down to survival of the genes.

Even though the following information is regularly hidden in academia because it doesn’t fit the West’s cultural narratives, studies of sexual behavior have led to quite the stunning revelation that harems are quite a normal part of human history. And indeed, it seems this tendency of women to orbit dominant men while using weaker men for resources is becoming the norm once again in the 21st century world in which cultural mores designed to keep women’s sexuality from destroying society have blindly been discarded in a vain pursuit of making “a better world.”

As reported on my blog in June in The History of Harems: Women Orbit, Too, anthropological studies have found evidence that harems have been quite the norm throughout most of history:

Here are some other parts of the world in which women were in harems of a dominant man rather than the one and only of hapless Beta males, the exact type of male they show open contempt towards today:

  • Egypt: Pharaohs demanded to be in the constant company of numerous beautiful girls.
  • Sri Lanka: King Kashyapa had a harem that numbered 500.
  • Mexico: Montezuma had 4,000 concubines when he met Cortez.
  • China: One emperor had 2,800 concubines.
  • Africa: Junior wives and concubines orbited Chieftans.
  • Mongolia: Genghis Khan fathered so many children 1 in 200 men have his DNA today.

The University of Wisconsin showed the practice of maintaining harems is far from unusual in history. It surveyed 1,000 historical societies to find out how common polygyny has been, and the findings are astonishing: Just 18% of historical societies were monogamous. Half of rest of the 82% had occasional polygyny and the other half had it all the time. If nothing else, this historical fact helps show why women have such contempt for Beta males – they are not as valuable for providing material things as high status men.

So women (like men, but moreso) are driven by coding from selfish genes, women want dominant men and don’t care about the rest (incidentally this is the rule in other species as well), and they do not think about the consequences of their actions on the long term viability of the civilization they’re in. They’d rather be in a harem with a dominant man than the “one and only” of a nice boy. The West was unique in that it had evolved to offer males a seat at the table of the human family via culturally enforced monogamy. That offer has since been rescinded.

utopia

Utopian dreams are turning into dystopian hell

What Does It All Mean

The world we are heading into, rather than being an altruistic world envisioned by liberals and other clueless dupes is going to be an increasingly unstable world as men vie with each other in contests to be top dog for the sexual and reproductive advantages. Women benefit, and arguably the human genome benefits because the strongest genes survive, but civilization loses and it loses big as primitive sexual forces and survival instincts are unleashed on a soft, delusional society.

This, more than anything else explains why women are welcoming rapists into cucked nations in Europe and outbreeding in increasing numbers in the U.S. It’s a giant civilizational shit test courtesy of selfish genes, of which women are more controlled by than men, who have greater powers of logic and reasoning.

The West’s attempts at making a better world in pursuit of the ultimate fulfillment of its Spenglerean Prime Symbol of Infinity, in the modern sense a strange ideology that sees world socialism as the be all, end all to humanity’s problems will end in tragedy. This is especially true in that it is blindly meddling with the primal forces of nature. It seems our “wise” leaders have thrown the dice one too many times in a delusional dream to bring about a “better world” but have unwittingly unleashed primitive forces (like The Selfish Gene and concepts Freud also worried about) that will destroy it.

It all boils down to liberalism being a giant Utopian dream that failed, and instead of taking us all to heaven as it claimed it would, it is casting us all into hell.

False Advertising: Women Hide Their True Faces with Makeup

Are you sure that chick your with is hot? Or is it all paint and plastic?

Are you sure that chick your with is hot? Or is it all paint and plastic?

Maybe first dates need to involve going swimming. The deception is real, gentlemen.

If ever there was a palpable demonstration of women’s innate tendency to dissemble – disguise or conceal themselves and their true feelings – it plays out with the unbelievable amount of makeup Western women wear. A man doesn’t know what kind of creature is really under there until all the war paint is washed off. Just look at the demonstration above. That chick goes from a 4 on a good day without makeup to a 7 or 8 with it. (She loses points for having a flat chest).

Obviously, wearing makeup is a woman’s attempt to raise her sexual market value, no matter what women say. (As always, watch what women DO not what they SAY). Makeup is such an obsession that American women spend nearly $500 billion a year on cosmetics. They then laughably say they don’t want to be judged on physical beauty, proving both the concept of the hamster rationalization and female susceptibility to groupthink correct at the same time.

Psychology today has its own theory about why women wear makeup.

Beyond any attractiveness measures, cosmetics may help women create certain favorable social perceptions. Indeed, a recent experiment revealed that women pictured wearing cosmetics were evaluated as healthier, more confident, and even having greater earning potential than the same women wearing no makeup.

Make no mistake, social creatures they are, women have been enhancing themselves in an attempt to catch the eye of an Alpha male and to stay competitive with other women for thousands of years. The history of cosmetics goes back at least 6,000 years and involves every society on earth. Much to the chagrin of feminists, biologically and psychologically women know their appearance is what counts to men, and men could give a rat’s ass about their college degree and all the YouGoGrrl careerism they’re flaunting. It always has been and always will be this way.

Makeup hides women’s facial flaws and enhances their two most important facial features: eyes and lips.

Science confirms what we in the manosphere already know. The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found women wear “romantic red” lipstick to attract men. Specifically, red lips subconsciously advertise to potential mates that another kind of lips are also of high quality. Current Anthropology did a scientific study and found females wear makeup to advertise their fertility, hide their age, and retain neotany, or juvenile features in the adult animal. In other words, old women want to be able to compete with nubile 20-year olds. It’s the desperate female attempt to fight the effects of The Wall and the loss of social capital and power.

It all goes back to youth, fertility, and beauty, the holy trinity of female sexual market value. Of course, the sexual market is the granddaddy of all other markets. Even the New York Daily News got the memo:

Women know this intrinsically and they understand that the mouth and eye region are the two most powerful parts of the face for communication. This is why women innately seek to highlight their eyelids by wearing mascara and eye shadow, and their lip region by wearing lipstick and lip liner. The additional of color to these importance facial areas increased the non-verbal femininity cues perceived by others.

But, as Western women’s attitudes make them repellent towards most men, are they overcompensating by wearing too much makeup? The Atlantic found an interesting little nugget:

People thought the [American] models looked best when they were wearing just 60 percent as much makeup as they had applied.

The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology did a study of makeup and attractiveness and found a plausible reason why Western women cake it on:

Taken together, these results suggest that women are likely wearing cosmetics to appeal to the mistaken preferences of others. These mistaken preferences seem more tied to the perceived expectancies of men, and, to a lesser degree, of women.

So, women are wearing too much makeup, and they’re doing it to meet the perceived expectations of men. Yep, we have a case of overcompensation here since bitchiness and frigidness and carousel riding drives quality men away. Feminism has not been kind to women, especially the dupes that believe in it.

Alicia Keys has been pushing a no-makeup campaign in an effort to stay in the headlines

Alicia Keys has been pushing a no-makeup campaign in an effort to stay in the headlines

Foregoing Makeup

Some women like Mila Kunis (Jackie on That 70s Show) are calling for women to post no makeup selfies and eschew makeup, no doubt in a bid to get attention in the cutthroat and sociopathic PR game. Alicia Keys also put out the Strong, Independent Woman propaganda when she did a photo shoot without makeup.

[I was] the strongest, most empowered, most free, and most honestly beautiful that I have ever felt.

Keys has even started a no makeup campaign and has created controversy because of it. Read: As her star fades, this is her attempt at staying in the news. Keys posted this after her recent makeup-free appearance at the VMAs.

Y’all, me choosing to be makeup free doesn’t mean I’m anti-makeup.

Whatever. Feminists want women to stop wearing makeup altogether and here we are just trying to find some balance between no makeup and face fraud. Why must women choose one extreme or the other in so many things they do rather than trying to achieve a sense of balance?

A little makeup goes a long way. It’s just that makeup application become such a deceptive art in modern times a man can be dating a dog without knowing it. Nothing wrong with being sexy and alluring, but when it gets to the point the woman with the makeup looks nothing like the one without it, we have a problem.

When I worked in the news business it was amazing to see our female “stars” without their face paint on. Well, maybe amazing isn’t the word for it. It was horrifying. Every single female anchor easily got their SMV cut in half without makeup on.

It certainly is interesting to know what’s lurking behind all those cosmetics. Just be prepared when your “catch” takes them off. Women have been wearing so much makeup for so long when a man sees her true face he’s almost as horrified as when a woman stops acting and her real personality comes out.

The Chrysler Turbine Car Reflects Bygone Era of American Greatness

Chrysler achieved the feat of putting a jet turbine engine in a car in the 1960s

Chrysler achieved the feat of putting a jet turbine engine in a car in the 1960s

Imagine, a jet-powered car. Chrysler made it a reality back in the 1960s, even though the idea was unfortunately short lived. The Chrysler Turbine is just what the name says – a jet turbine powered car. It’s quite a remarkable engineering feat, and not only reflects an era when not only the chrome was thick and the women were straight (Michael Savage’s great line) but an era when American car companies were fearless instead of gutless.

Jay Leno has one of the last surviving Turbines. You can watch Leno driving his Turbine around as well as demonstrating a cool, vintage technical video about how the Turbine works on YouTube. It sounds like a jet sitting on the tarmac when he fires it up and whisks away in it. Leno says of the Turbine:

Most were destroyed by Chrysler for tax and liability reasons, which is a shame, because to this day everyone who rides in a Turbine says, “Whoa, this feels like the future!” You turn the key and there’s a big whoosh and a complete absence of vibration… I think it’s the most collectible American car—it was so different. Most of all, the Chrysler Turbine is a reminder that all the cool stuff used to be made in the U.S. I hope it will be again.

The jet engine theme carries over to the rear of the Chrysler Turbine

The jet engine theme carries over to the rear of the Chrysler Turbine

Other than a couple handfuls of survivors (nine in total), all Chrysler Turbines were recalled and crushed. Perhaps because a turbine engine, once realized and after a few generations of engineering could likely eliminate the need for most mechanics. The turbine engine only used 1/5 of the number of moving parts as a regular car engine, and turbines are dead reliable as they power jet aircraft all over the world. Of the 1.1 million miles of driving accumulated by testers, downtime on the cars stood at only 4% and was the result of owners incorrectly using leaded gas. The Chrysler Turbine could also use just about any type of fuel, an engineering feat that surely upset the Seven Sister oil companies of the day. Gasoline, kerosene, jet fuel, vegetable oil, and even Tequila – as demonstrated by Mexico’s then-President Adolfo Lopez-Mateos – could power the Turbine.

The Turbine is all the more impressive since Chrysler engineers worked hard to have cool exhaust coming out of the back of a very hot engine, and succeeded as exhaust gas temperatures were LOWER than other automobiles of the day. Also in the “cool” department, the Turbine does not have a traditional “coolant temp” gauge, it has an inlet temp gauge which reads 500, 1000, 1500, and 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. Performance and fuel economy from the engine was good for its day, and continued refinement of the design would have no doubt advanced the design.

Other than the engine, everything else about the Turbine is pretty much stock 1960s Chrysler, except the body of the car which was manufactured in Italy. Its design is not gaudy but elegant, another impressive achievement in an era in which automotive styling could in your face. The project was totally abandoned by 1977.

The Chrysler Turbine is a symbol of time when America was self-confident in its ability to do just about anything, like put a man on the moon, and the car reflects that pride. It also reflects the ballsy nature of men who ran corporations back then. They were fearless and willing to try new ideas instead of rehashing old ideas in pursuit of quarterly profits. How unfortunate for us the micromanagers and bean counters took over.

The fear of failure is worse than failure itself. Something we should remember as men and as a nation. While the car was never a commercial success, perhaps because it was so costly, the idea was sound and continued development of the Turbine should have continued. The shelving of this idea by Chrysler means the dominance of a 100-year old design, the internal combustion engine continues to this day. How many more great ideas were shelved because of the influence of big oil companies?

The Carousel Effect: DNA from Previous Sex Partners Could Affect Future Offspring

Sexy_Woman

The DNA from previous sex partners has been shown to influence offspring from future fathers in other species

If the controversial revelations in Sperm Wars revealing the harsh truths about just how tricky women’s fertility can be and how promiscuous the history of the human species has been were not enough, here’s another bombshell that just dropped. When a woman breaks up with a man she has had sex with, or is a frequent carousel rider, there’s speculation among genetic researchers based on genetic testing that something of her former partners could affect any future offspring she has with her new partner. Call it nature pre-cucking Captain Save-a-Ho.

The idea is referred to as telegony, and has been around since Greek times, but was struck down around a century ago by modern science. However, science is always moving and changing. Shockingly, a new study from Australian researchers and reviewed by English researchers reveals ancient wisdom may challenge the accepted wisdom from the ministers of promiscuity and the pro-carousel brigade. As reported by Medical Daily:

[Telegony] was first proposed by the Greek philosopher Aristotle and was accepted as science until the early 1900s when it was disproved and replaced by more modern genetic theory. Unfortunately, the theory was largely used as a fear tactic to prevent women from copulating with different races or lower classes, but the study suggests the theory may have some elements of truth — for flies, at least.

Pro-feminist propaganda aside, even that article admits the hypothesis may have some legitimacy in humans. It just can’t bring itself to criticize the 1960s idea that women should sleep around as a way of “empowering” themselves. Amazingly, in flies, the traits of males the female has previously mated with can be transmitted to future offspring sired by other males. Dr. Angela Crean, lead researcher on the gene research project a the University of New South Wales in Australia explains:

We found that even though the second male sired the offspring, offspring size was determined by what the mother’s previous mating partner ate. Our new findings take this to a whole new level — showing a male can also transmit some of his acquired features to offspring sired by other males.

Of course, this finding has a long way to go from being proven to be the case in humans. However, just as a Marxist lobotomy removed many of the teachings and ancient wisdom from the Overton Window of acceptable discourse, ideas taken for granted in the Bible that forms the basis of the world’s three major religions, could the traditional prohibitions on female promiscuity be validated once again, this time by science?

Research shows genetics of offspring may be more complicated than just a simple sperm and egg

What About Mammals

Beyond flies, there is precedent for the effect of telegony occurring in other mammals, the Class humans belong to. Crean continues:

There is no evidence of such effects in humans, but there has not been any research on this possibility in humans. There is a potential for such effects in mammals. For example, there is a lot of fetal DNA in maternal blood during pregnancy, and this could potentially play a role in such effects. There is also evidence in mammals that seminal fluid affects offspring development, so semen from one male could potentially influence the development of eggs fertilized by another male (which is what we think is happening in flies).

So, whether it be demographics showing a dying population (and a spiritually dead one at that) in the West, religious prohibitions on female carousel riding going back 5,000 years, or emerging science showing that female promiscuity might just be affecting the genetic material of future offspring she has with any future Beta male once she gets off the carousel, there are a lot of negative effects when it comes to a culture letting women run wild, well beyond the sexual jungle and disincentive for male participation it creates.

There are tantalizing suggestions that the first father of a woman’s children may determine at least some of the traits of all of her children. It truly could be first come, first served in nature. And another scientific dagger in the heart of women’s lib, beyond the fact Oxford anthropologist J.D. Unwin revealed any society that does not practice monogamy ultimately declines in his seminal but totally ignored (today) work Sex and Culture. Crean goes on:

We know that features that run in families are not just influenced by the genes that are passed down from parents to their children. Various non-genetic inheritance mechanisms make it possible for environmental factors to influence characteristics of a child. Our new findings take this to a whole new level – showing a male can also transmit some of his acquired features to offspring sired by other males.

Call it nature cucking Betas and men who don’t dominate their partner’s sexuality. This is amazing research, and lends credence to the idea of K-selected societies practicing female chastity while r-selected societies do not. Dr. Stuart Wigby at Oxford University told the press:

This particular mechanism would be unlikely to apply to mammals such as humans because of differences in reproductive physiology compared to insects. However, other researchers have suggest that mechanisms exist that could in principle result in telegony in humans; for example because mothers carry fetal DNA in their blood during pregnancy.

Reality, once again it seems, could be stranger than fiction. Another reason to avoid long term commitments with Tinder and carousel-riding discards, as if a man needed more reasons.

Thoughts on Freedom: Imagine Domesticating the Dog Today

Dog

The lovable dog could not be domesticated today without issues

Man’s best friend. Many people seem to love dogs more than other people. There are understandable reasons why. Dogs are loyal, they don’t backstab you like people, they’re always happy to see you, they love your attention, and many of them are obedient. They’ve been a part of the human family for 20,000 to 40,000 years, assisting the earliest hunter-gatherers in their quest to find food. You may already know dogs are direct descendants of wolves. In fact, the animals are so genetically similar they’re not known as different species and when they breed together the taxonomy merely changes from Canis Familiaris to Canis Lupus Familiaris.

Obviously, they weren’t always domesticated animals. Dogs are descended from gray wolves, and the two animals diverged during the Last Glacial Maximum when much of Asia was a cold tundra and ice froze much of the planet. Fossil evidence takes us back at least 36,000 years to the Goyet dog found in Belgium, a Paleolithic dog which would resemble a wolf more than a dog. Without dogs, and the men who took risks domesticating them from wolves, Greger Laron of the Oxford School of Anthropology say we would have never seen the success we enjoy today.

The dog was the first domesticant. Without dogs you don’t have any other domestication. You don’t have civilization. Remove domestication from the human species, and there’s probably a couple of million of us on the planet, max. Instead, what do we have? Seven billion people, climate change, travel, innovation and everything. Domestication has influenced the entire earth. And dogs were the first. For most of human history, we’re not dissimilar to any other wild primate. We’re manipulating our environments, but not on a scale bigger than, say, a herd of African elephants. And then, we go into partnership with this group of wolves. They altered our relationship with the natural world.

But, imagine in this day of timidity, groupthink and squelching of originality, what if one did something as “crazy” as bringing a wolf into their home to keep as a pet. Underwear would be soiled, the vultures in the news media would swoop in and do their usual curiosity seeking nonsensical stories criticizing the “dangers” of having this animal around, and bureaucrats would be be falling over themselves to pass a law or send in a SWAT team to solve this insidious problem!

As we continue with this thought experiment, dog domestication will be a proxy to help us illustrate the high cost of groupthink, centralized power, and committee decision making, which are not always best for our species. Governments are the most insidious groupthinkers on the planet, who use force to crush behavior that deviates from the corporate propagandized hivemind, especially in Anglo America.

Wolf

Wolves and dogs are genetically very similar

Impossible Today

The domestication that was easy for our ancestors to realize would difficult if not impossible today. Sure, living conditions have changed, but what if someone wanted to disconnect from the corporate lifestyle of mindless consumption and return to a closer relationship with nature? Keeping a wolf as a hunting companion or for defense would either be illegal or it would be politically incorrect.

Quite simply, there are just too many laws on the books. Estimates of the numbers of regulations micromanaging lives in the “free” country of America range from 10,000 to over 300,000. In fact, some efforts to count all the laws have failed. Ronald Gainer, a retired Justice Department official undertook an effort to count all the rules that boss people around under threat of fines and imprisonment “for the express purpose of exposing the idiocy” of the system. He couldn’t count them all. John Baker, a retired Louisiana State University law professor said:

There is no one in the United States over the age of 18 who cannot be indicted for some federal crime.

That is chilling when one considers the gravity of the statement. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. With that many rules anyone knows there will be laws on the books keeping people from owning wolves as pets, even a rural area. In fact, One Green Planet researched the issue and found:

There are many legal issues involved with keeping a wolf in the U.S. It is felt that wolfdogs are not only the most misunderstood animals in the U.S., but also the most mismanaged. Though some feel they are wonderful pets, many opponents argue that they are unpredictable, impossible to train and inherently dangerous. Because of this, having a wolf or wolfdog as a pet is illegal in many places and is often associated with many rules in others – and with good reason.

Not just one, but many generations of wolves would have to be kept, bred, and domesticated to accumulate the slow change in behavior needed to turn dangerous wolves into lovable dogs. Out of the question in modern day America. Where does personal responsibility and decision making factor into an equation like this? Does it even count anymore? Or are we all part of a socialist collective now? Why is the omnipotent state bossing everyone around? Why do people try to use the government to control other people while whining when they get controlled by it? If nobody else is getting hurt, why does the government need to come in like thugs and tell people what to do, as in the case of busting in like storm troopers to stop the sale of raw milk.

By stifling originality, screaming, flopping on the floor, and foaming at the mouth each time someone thinks, acts, or behaves differently in society we are ultimately hurting our species. As with domestication (which only serves as an example) discoveries and original thoughts cannot made when people act like drones whose activities have been preplanned and prearranged for them on a daily basis. The point of this discussion is not to suggest that everyone rush out and get a wolf and try to domesticate it, it’s to illustrate that originality, independent thought, and personal freedom led to success in our species, but are now stifled.

Domesticating dogs, easy to do in our history, would be virtually impossible to realize today without careful planning when in the past it came about organically. H.L. Mencken wrote this fabulous piece about how many freedoms had already been lost three-quarters of a century ago; he’d probably have a heart attack if he woke up in today’s police state.

The American of today, in fact, probably enjoys less personal liberty than any other man of Christendom, and even his political liberty is fast succumbing to the new dogma that certain theories of government are virtuous and lawful, and others abhorrent and felonious. Laws limiting the radius of his free activity multiply year by year: It is now practically impossible for him to exhibit anything describable as genuine individuality, either in action or in thought, without running afoul of some harsh and unintelligible penalty. It would surprise no impartial observer if the motto “In God we trust” were one day expunged from the coins of the republic by the Junkers at Washington, and the far more appropriate word, “verboten,” substituted. Nor would it astound any save the most romantic if, at the same time, the goddess of liberty were taken off the silver dollars to make room for a bas-relief of a policeman in a spiked helmet. Moreover, this gradual (and, of late, rapidly progressive) decay of freedom goes almost without challenge; the American has grown so accustomed to the denial of his constitutional rights and to the minute regulation of his conduct by swarms of spies, letter-openers, informers and agents provocateurs that he no longer makes any serious protest.

This is the problem with authoritarianism and trying to use the government to protect everyone from themselves. This thinking turns the government into everyone’s mommy and daddy instead of expecting people to become adults. And as this simplistic illustration shows, the domestication of the dog would be impossible today without reams of paperwork, media snooping, sheeple criticism, flailing of the arms, and possible fines and arrests.

Self-ownership, minimum government and maximum freedom are what we should be moving towards rather than the specter of Big Brother style authoritarianism in the 21st century. Who knows what other great advancements we are missing out on by turning people into servants of innumerable laws rather than free people who act of their own volition? It worked in the past. It can work again.
