Leading Feminist Admits: Domestic Violence Is Not A Gendered Issue

By Domestic violence is not a gender issue
Intimate partner violence (IPV) is not a gender issue – it is time for family peace.
In the last few days the results of the government investigation of IPV have been presented to me by the responsible minister. After reading them I am compelled by reality to present a dissaproving note to both the investigators and the government who still seem to be of the view that sexism is the solution to the problem of domestic violence.
The tone and the division was already defined right from the title – “The National Strategy to Combat Men’s Violence Against Women” – infering that we have a guilty sex and an innocent sex. But thanks to extensive research in the field, both at the national and international level, we now know with great certainty that this breakdown by sex is simply not true. We also know through extensive practice and experience that the attempts to solve the issue through this kind of analysis have failed. And they failed precisely because violence is not, and never has been, a gender issue.
In Sweden, however, even the slightest questioning of the current model has been regarded as swearing in an otherwise quiet and echoing church. Few are those who have dared to openly question the current model, but it is about time to start doing so. Sweden is, or should in any case strive to be, a knowledgeable society. This society is characterized above all by its willingness to be guided by free and politically independent research when it comes to making decisions affecting all of us. As such, careful analysis and lessons of accumulated experience ought to be an important criterion in decision making.

"You have to wonder Sargon, why are these people so insistent on these seemingly innocuous things, why is it they don't like ethical journalism and men's human rights and doe it have anything to do with how much they insist on everyone being a feminist, it's not a fucking coincidence now is it?"

Propaganda Reigns In The West
By Paul Craig Roberts: The lies about Russia and Russia’s president have grown so thick, threatening the world with devastating war, that distinguished Americans have formed the American Committee for East-West Accord (eastwestaccord.com). The members of the founding board are former US senator Bill Bradley, Amb. Jack Matlock who was US ambassador to the Soviet Union during the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations, William J. vanden Heuvel who was US ambassador to the UN during the Carter administration, John Pepper who is the former chairman and CEO of Proctor Gamble, Gilbert Doctorow who is a businessman with a quarter century of business experience with Russia, and professors Ellen Mickiewicz of Duke University and Stephen Cohen of Princeton University and New York University.
It is extraordinary that the cooperation between Russia and the US created over the decades by successive administrations, beginning with John F. Kennedy and culminating in the end of the Cold War with the Reagan-Gorbachev agreements, has been destroyed by a handful of American neoconservative warmongers in the past year and one-half. The achievement of a 40-year struggle has been wiped out overnight by a handful of insane warmongers who believe that Washington has a right to world hegemony. Thanks to the crazed neoconservatives, nuclear war is again a specter that haunts mankind.

BDS Excommunicates The Great Jacob Cohen

By Gilad Atzmon: I have just learned that Jacob Cohen, the internationally acclaimed Jewish humanist and intellectual was forbidden to attend the French BDS annual meeting. While it is hard to determine whether the BDS movement has actually liberated a single Palestinian, the list of top pro Palestinian intellectuals and activists who have been harassed, smeared and excommunicated by the BDS* keeps growing.  One may wonder, when did the BDS stop being a ‘Palestinian Grassroots Movement’ and become a synagogue?

Women Trapping Men - MGTOW

"I'm twenty years old and I've got a story I'd like to share. I have a female friend and I have reduced the amount of attention I give to her over the last year. Perhaps maybe talking to her two or three times a month. And now it's lessened to once per month since my summer school classes have ended. She left to study abroad and is now looking for more attention from me because she's probably lonely and has no one to talk to. My father also often lectures me about staying away from women all the time because they are dangerous.

Bring Austerity To Banksters!

Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert, in a double header, discuss the evidence emerging that QE is causing deflation as the wealthy delay consumption to participate, instead, in rapidly rising stock, bond and house prices. They also discuss two reports out - one from the IMF and the other from the OECD - that expanding the finance sector is not possible without causing further economic decline. Only austerity for banksters will do and bashing the finance sector into a smaller, more manageable (and profitable) size will save us.

Study Proves Most Animals Are Self-Aware

By A sense of self has long been thought to be a human’s only characteristic. New experiments and observations of experiments that date as far back as 1950 have convinced Professor Thomas Hills with the University of Warwick’s Department of Psychology and Professor Stephen Butterfill from Warwick’s Department of Philosophy that most animals possess a sense of self. The discovery was reported in the June 15, 2015, edition of the journal Current Zoology.
Mice and other vertebrates were seen to stop at points in a maze that required a decision. The decision making indicates that animals can propose and reject different paths of action. The animals can envision an outcome or a number of outcomes based on a decision before they make the decision. This capacity is a key element of self-awareness.
The researchers found that the areas of the hippocampus in test animals displayed more activity when the animals had to make a decision in a maze. The same areas of the human brain are activated to a greater extent when humans envision the outcome of a choice. The physical evidence substantiates the concept that most animals are self-aware.
The level of self-awareness in animals does not appear to be at the same level of human beings. The research does show that even mice have the basics of self-awareness needed to have a sense of self.
