Vengeful Harridans Can Kick An Innocent Young Man Out Of University

By Belinda Brown: There is a new feminist assault on academia. They have won the battle of the numbers. Now wholesale behaviour change is their chosen prize.
Universities UK (UUK) have produced a report: Changing the Culture. This will examine violence against women, harassment and hate crime. Cambridge University will be one of the first to carry their beacon. Or perhaps it will be the canary in the mine.
The fact that the vast majority of students are extremely satisfied with the environment on the campus and around the university (but a lot less happy with the Student Union it should be noted) does not, according to this UUK Taskforce, indicate an absence of sexual harassment:
“Despite this positive feedback…separate evidence shows [it is] prevalent within wider society. Universities are a microcosm of society and are therefore affected by the same problems”.

Glenn Greenwald Lists The Presstitutes’ Confessions That The Lame-Stream Media Is A Supplier Of Fake News

By : Three prominent CNN journalists resigned Monday night after the network was forced to retract and apologize for a story linking Trump ally Anthony Scaramucci to a Russian investment fund under congressional investigation. That article — like so much Russia reporting from the U.S. media — was based on a single anonymous source, and now, the network cannot vouch for the accuracy of its central claims.
In announcing the resignation of the three journalists — Thomas Frank, who wrote the story (not the same Thomas Frank who wrote “What’s the Matter with Kansas?”); Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Eric Lichtblau, recently hired away from the New York Times; and Lex Haris, head of a new investigative unit — CNN said that “standard editorial processes were not followed when the article was published.” The resignations follow CNN’s Friday night retraction of the story, in which it apologized to Scaramucci:

Western Childhood Is Creating An Authoritarian Society

Overprotective parenting is a threat to democracy.
By Pratik Chougule: American childhood has taken an authoritarian turn. An array of trends in American society are conspiring to produce unprecedented levels of supervision and control over children’s lives. Tracing the effects of childrearing on broad social outcomes is an exercise in speculation. But if social scientists are correct to posit a connection between childrearing and long-term political outcomes, today’s restrictive childhood norms may portend a broader regression in our country’s democratic consensus. 
Since the early 1980s, American childhood has been marked by a turn toward stringent adult control. Support for “free range” childhood has given way to a “flight to safety” characterized by unprecedented dictates over children’s routines.
More so than any other generation, parents and educators have instilled in millennials the idea that, as Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt put it, “life is dangerous, but adults will do everything in their power to protect you from harm.” Indeed, strong social pressures have so hardened against parents who believe in the value of a free, unsupervised childhood that psychologist Peter Gray likens them to past Chinese norms on foot binding.
Hard numbers illustrate these trends:
  • The amount of free time school-aged children enjoyed plummeted from 40 percent in the early 1980s to 25 percent by the mid 1990s.

Toxic Masculinity And Suicide

Otto Warmbier, Philando Castile, And The Out-Group Derogation Of Men

Otto Warmbier
Typically, when a human being dies, no matter how despicable, their families are awarded the ability to grieve, and the departed is granted some dignity. (See: Death and Funeral of Richard Nixon) This however, is not true when we believe the departed or their family to be subhuman. People we believe we are superior to are known to social scientists as an out-group.
Out-group members (a.k.a. “them”) when viewed by in-group members (a.k.a. “us”) are not perceived as individuals, but as part of a subhuman group. All humans are subject to in-group/out-group dynamics. All out-groups are perceived as non-individual, subhuman examples of their group’s stereotype.
When bad things happen to out-group members, including death, in-group members justify the suffering and claim that the group is the cause of their own misfortune. Usually, this will be justified by alluding to the behaviors of the stereotype.
For example, the New York Post reported that 62 year-old Professor Dettwyler, an Anthropologist from Delaware, apparently did not recognize Otto Warmbier, the young American who’d died days before, as part of her in-group.

Mark Latham, ‘The Myth Of White Male Privilege’

Mike Buchanan: Possibly the most highly-anticipated talk at ICMI17 was that of Mark Latham, which kicked off the final day. Mark Latham is a former Australian politician who was the leader of the Australian Labor Party and Leader of the Opposition from December 2003 to January 2005. He led the party at the 2004 federal election. For some time he hosted Outsiders, an Australian television news and commentary programme broadcast weekly on Sky News Australia, and now hosts Mark Latham’s Outsiders. We had a very amicable conversation.

Ultimate Cuckold Recorded In Medieval Flanders Near Ghent

As medieval literature makes clear, medieval men sought to avoid being cuckolded. Medieval literature advised men to believe what they saw, rather than what their wives told them. Men were advised that, if their wives told them they were dead, not to believe it. Before he left on a business trip, one medieval husband even painted a guardian lamb on his wife’s abdomen. Underscoring men’s concern about being cuckolded, a twelfth-century Latin text written in Flanders near Ghent recorded the ultimate cuckold: Ysengrimus, an elderly wolf.
One day, Renard the fox entered Ysengrimus’s home while he was out hunting for food for his family. Ysengrimus’s wolf-wife, weary from having recently given birth to cubs, was in bed. Renard pretended to have friendly relations with Ysengrimus. Renard even referred to him as his uncle. Renard chatted warmly with Ysengrimus’s children about their father:
Then, raising his leg and pouring forth a stream from both orifices,
he said, “Here’s a milk-soaked rusk — doesn’t it taste good?
Lap it up, dear little cousins, lap it up! To you
I present this tidbit, which I was retaining for my own children.

The Deep State - Paul Craig Roberts

Jason Liosatos: My talk with Paul Craig Roberts former assistant treasury secretary to Ronald Reagan. We talk about the Theresa May deal with DUP, Jeremy Corbyn, the Brexit shambles, Donald Trump, Syria, the provocation of Putin, the Deep State, and the lethargy and reluctance of people globally to protest, stand up, and demand an end to continual wars for profit.

Gonna’ Have To Face It, You’re Addicted To War

By The last time I thought there might be a world war was in the 1980s. Ronald Reagan and his minions were placing cruise missiles designed to be armed with nuclear warheads all across Europe. Millions across Europe and the United States were protesting this deployment. Women set up permanent protest camps outside of US military bases in Britain and the US. Massive rallies, marches and occupations against the deployment took place in Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Great Britain and other nations. Popular musicians (Nina’s “99 Luftballoons”, Grateful Dead’s “Throwing Stones”) penned songs against the plans and the madness of war in general. Meanwhile, Ronald Reagan and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher schemed and maneuvered the legislatures of their respective countries into approving the basing of nuclear missiles on their soil. The madness of the leaders and the war industry that leads them and the generals like so many craven submissives was all too clear and on display to the world.
Before that, there was my childhood. It was a childhood shared by millions of people in my generation; a childhood defined by the Cold War and its numerous hot flare-ups in Asia, Africa and Latin America. It was a childhood in which I spent a few weeks of first and second grade learning how to duck and cover in the classroom while the nun at the head of the class prayed for us all not to be attacked from Cuba.

Seymour Hersh Reports How Trump Bombed Syria On Completely False Pretenses

By Michael Krieger: Part of Trump’s appeal to many of his voters was, at least ostensibly, the idea that he would employ a less hawkish/neocon foreign policy than his opponent Hillary “We Came, We Saw, He Died” Clinton. While it’s still too early to decisively say that Trump will usher in yet another foreign policy disaster for these United States and the world, it’s certainly not looking good.
The lobbing of tomahawk missiles into Syrian based on the fairytale that Assad launched a chemical weapons attack was the first sign that Trump is easily manipulated and impulsive. In fact, the episode bothered me so much I wrote a post detailing the dire ramifications titled, Prepare for Impact – This is the Beginning of the End for U.S. Empire.  I suggest taking a read if you missed it the first time, it’s my most popular post of the year.
While that was bad enough, Trump’s cozying up to the barbaric, terrorist-supporitng leaders of Saudi Arabia has been by far the most concerning aspect of his foreign policy (if you can call it that) so far. This policy has become even more dangerous now that the 30-year old princeling who is leading the Saudis’ increasingly aggressive stance in the region has been named crown prince. It appears Trump is willing to let the Saudis do whatever they want in the region, which is guaranteed to have disastrous implications for America and the Middle East.

Nutrition For Mental Health: The Importance Of Protein

By : This is my first post for the MHRM. I’ll be writing about men’s health and nutrition, and nutrition for mental health in particular. Many men who are dealing with the kinds of problems we discuss on AVfM also experience depression or anxiety. Whether their situation involves a vindictive ex wife, domestic violence, or something else entirely, mental health problems are often a result.
I focus on helping men improve both their mental and physical health through nutrition. I realized we are already aware of the importance of healthy food as PE put out his video “White Food is Evil” last year. I want to expand on his ideas and provide more detailed, useful information that men can implement in their own lives to improve their health and manage their mood.
If you find yourself in a trying situation like a biased battle in family court it’s easy to fall into a diet of fast food or just skipping meals. But you need to be as clear-headed as possible to give yourself every advantage you can. That means eating good food! Today I’m going to talk about the importance of protein when it comes to mental health. Protein is a natural mood stabilizer and I’ll explain the science behind this shortly.

Palestinian Expo 2017: The UK Government And The Lobby

By Gilad Atzmon: Over the last decade, Palestinian solidarity has been hijacked by many Jewish organisations - JVP, IJAN, J-BIGand also by other insipid left-leaning groups that in practice, have reduced Palestinian solidarity into a paradigm that is lame, meaningless and leads absolutely nowhere. This loose collective of tribal and Identitarian merchants has managed to reduce the magisterial Palestinian call for Right of Return into a squalid and self-serving Jewish internal debate about the ‘Right to BDS.’ The discourse of the oppressed is now defined by the sensitivities of the oppressor.
Palestine Expo 2017 , scheduled to take place on the weekend of July 8-9 at the QE2 centre, could have been an attempt to re-instate the meaning of Palestine: its culture, its politics and its call for liberation. It could have reinvigorated resistance and, most importantly, put the Right of Return at its heart. It could even have attempted to redefine and solidify the Palestinian conditions for peace in the region.

Saint Eugenia With Female Advantage Refuted False Accusation Of Rape

: After Eugenia had spent only three years as a monk, her monk-brethren elected her abbot of their monastery near Alexandria in the second-century Roman Empire. The monks regarded Eugenia as first in virtue among them. They also admired her modesty and love for everyone. When she entered the monastery, she brought with her two eunuchs who had served her in her former life of female privilege. The eunuchs became monks and strove to imitate Eugenia from their advantageous position relative to the other men in the monastery.
Seeking healing from a terrible illness, a rich woman named Melanthia came to the abbot Eugenia. Eugenia was renowned for healing. With her own hands, Eugenia anointed Melanthia with holy oil. Melanthia was thus cured.
Melanthia subsequently became sick again. This time she was sick with lovesickness for Eugenia:

upon seeing a man, youthful in appearance and beautiful in his face, desire (albeit not a degenerate sort) entered her, and little by little, her soul was seduced. Soon, she was burning intensely, thinking that Eugenia could not remain chaste forever [1]

We Must Support Theatre 80 And Lorcan Otway!

By Gilad Atzmon: Before the publication of my recent book, Being in Time, I visited the USA for a brief coast-to-coast tour. The literary/music expedition was met with significant opposition in New York City at Theatre 80. Theatre 80 is a great historical institution with a history of providing an intelligent platform for musicians including John Coltrane and Thelonius Monk, theatre, movies and speakers, including me.
We planned a night of open discussion on different issues to do with my new book, critiquing ID politics and the post political condition. We wanted a truly open dialogue and we personally invited each of my NYC and American detractors to share the podium. Apparently,  not one had the courage to engage in a public dialogue with me.   This is understandable I guess, I’ve bought myself a reputation of being outspoken on issues to do with Jewish power and controlled opposition.
The program evolved into a diverse panel featuring: Stanley Cohen, Prof. Norton Mezvinsky, Michael Lesher and yours truly.  It didn’t take long before the Jewish Forward together with family incest enthusiast Donna Minkowitz ran a hit piece on myself, the event and Theatre 80.

The Usual Suspects

Men, Relationships And Hate Sex

By : Hate sex. Those two words appearing together come across as awkward, even oxymoronic, for who in their right mind hates sex? We might hate sex with the wrong person according to our criteria of what’s hot, but very few people in this world hate sex altogether.
The phrase however isn’t intended to suggest a person hates sex, but rather that they desire it with a person they are currently fighting with or hating on.
Other variations on the phrase include rage sex, grudge sex, angry sex, and sometimes rough sex, each offering slightly different meanings but tied together in the act of having sex with someone you don’t feel so good about.
Sex of this kind is widely believed to be more intense than normal sex, and for that reason “We love having ‘make-up’ sex” is a common euphemism for hateful grinding.
The begging question is why would a couple want to have sex if they are experiencing serious resentment or alienation?
One school of psychology provides some answers.
British Object Relations psychologists claim that if relationship bonds are constantly rendered insecure then the desire for sex is harnessed as a way to reinstate vanishing relationship security. When relationships become fragmented and weak, we desire to be more in synch again, more loved, more on the same page. We want to reaffirm that our future together is secure, walking into the sunset hand in hand, worldview intact.

Mike Buchanan Brings A Private Prosecution Against A Doctor Who’s Genitally Mutilated Thousands Of Baby Boys

By Mike Buchanan, J4MB: Ending the non-therapeutic circumcision of male minors on non-therapeutic grounds – Male Genital Mutilation, MGM – in the UK has been the leading campaign of J4MB over the past two years. We have considerably increased public awareness that MGM is illegal, being at least Actual Bodily Harm under the Offences Against the Person Act 1861, and probably Grievous Bodily Harm. It would require a parliamentary override for MGM to be legal, and that has never existed. No exemptions to the law in England and Wales are permissible for religious or cultural considerations, but most male minors of Jewish and Muslim parents in the UK are circumcised.
Mike Buchanan will tomorrow present a ‘written information’ – a document outlining the details of a private prosecution, here – at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court, charging Dr Joseph Spitzer, a prominent London-based doctor and mohel (Jewish ritual circumciser), with inflicting Actual Bodily Harm, a criminal offence under the OAPA 1861. Spitzer claims to have circumcised thousands of baby boys over his 35-year ‘career’.

Red Pill Isolation

By : It’s not going to come as any great surprise to red pill men that the red pill life isn’t all roses. We enjoy the freedom that comes with it; the escape from chivalry, hypergamy and other artifacts of gynocentrism. We enjoy the fact that we are not bound to knee-jerk white knighting and slobbering endorsement of whatever glory du jour is being lavished on women because they can tie their shoes as well as a man. Most of us know that we will never, or at least never again, face the perils of family court and that we won’t be sweating the bills to support women who think that showing up with a vagina is the only requirement they have in a relationship.
Even those of us in relationships, if our red pill dosage is sufficient, never worry about the hysterical wrath of a woman scorned, and we don’t bother ourselves satisfying a woman’s childish demands. We are perfectly prepared to invite her to seek that kind of satisfaction elsewhere, from someone else self-loathing enough to bend to that kind of infantile pressure. We don’t sleep on sofas because a woman is displeased, and we don’t retreat into a doghouse for anyone. In short, as far as lives go, it’s a pretty good one.
If you sense a but coming, you do so correctly.

Male Psychology Conference 2017

By MRA-UK: This was the fourth Male Psychology Conference, held at UCL 23-24 June 2017. Credit to John Barry and Martin Seager for organising the event (again), under the auspices of The Male Psychology Network. In my opinion this was the best conference yet, and was also the best attended (around 80 people, though some came for just one of the two days).
If you don’t want to read the whole review, just scroll down to Naomi Murphy.
And after that to Paul Apreda.
The first Keynote speaker, the Right Hon. Norman Lamb MP, was late to arrive so Martin Seager made an impromptu extended introduction which usefully set the tone, making reference to the litany of male disadvantages and society’s current lack of recognition thereof.
The Right Hon. Norman Lamb MP, has a long record of speaking up for mental health issues in parliament and as a Minister, particularly as regards its lack of funding. He discovered from his own experience with his son, who suffers from OCD, that the legal right of choice regarding place of treatment does not apply to mental health. He injected a note of realpolitik in respect of the role of NHS targets in driving where the money goes. The Secretary of State and senior officers pore over the data on NHS performance against targets weekly – so if your thing, e.g., mental health, has no target, it gets no focus and hence little funding.

Athens Versus Jerusalem - A Book Review By 'Plato's Guns'

GA: The following is an incredibly clever book review by one of my favourite political commentators. Taxi sees in Being in Time an expose of  the 'Athens vs. Jerusalem struggle.' Taxi is absolutely right - this is a battle  for our survival. It is far from being an easy one, We are both infiltrated and run over.
Athens versus Jerusalem
By Taxi: A review of ‘Being in Time: A Post-Political Manifesto’ – by Gilad Atzmon/Skyscraper Publication
First, I must make stern objection to the subtitle of this book: “A Post-Political Manifesto“.  No, dearest reader, this is no manifesto at all.  A manifesto is usually instructive and Atzmon’s book is actually reflective.  A manifesto is imbibed with strict political dogma, whereas Atzmon’s book is charged with a free-flowing, philosophical energy.  The book is, in fact, an astute and remarkable comment on the metaphysics of our current political condition: using the age-old blueprint of Athens versus Jerusalem to unravel the dark and twisted marvels of our current political dystopia.
For over two thousand years, a war between rationalist Athens and messianic Jerusalem has ensued, but not to clear conclusion.

Michael Krieger's Response To The Common Question: What Can I Do To Help?

We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.
– Mahatma Gandhi
Over the years, many people have asked me, “what can I do to help?” and I never really had a good answer. After five years of consistent writing and thinking, I finally have something concrete to say, but it might not be what you expect. The answer is to work on yourself. Be a better person. It’s something I need to do, and it’s something all of us can strive for every day of our lives since every one of us is flawed.
It doesn’t matter what you do for a living, or what your individual circumstances are, we’re all presented with a variety of choices on a consistent basis. We are all constantly faced with the opportunity to be kind, apathetic or downright mean to someone else, and it doesn’t matter how small the gesture is, every single act is meaningful.

The Wikipedia Page On J4MB Justice 4 Men & Boys, Is Becoming More Misleading - Thanks Philip Cross

By Mike Buchanan, J4MB: Our thanks to Ken for pointing out that our Wikipedia entry is becoming ever more misleading over time. Gems include this, concerning our 2015 general election manifesto:

The section on sexual abuse concentrates on female offenders, and the issue of 85,000 rapes and 400,000 sexual assaults annually committed against women in the UK is avoided.
85,000 rapes ‘annually committed against women in the UK’? It’s a longstanding feminist lie. On p.36 of the manifesto you’ll find the government’s statistic for the number of men convicted of rape in British courts in 2013 = 980 
So, who can we credit with such misinformation on our Wikipedia entry? Life is too short to track down the author of every bit of nonsense, and at least you know what to expect from geniuses such as ‘The Vintage Feminist’, but a particularly keen ‘editor’ is Philip Cross, whoever he – or, more likely, she – is.

‘Buried Alive’: The Old Men Stuck In Britain’s Prisons

They can’t manage the stairs, so they can’t exercise, or go to classes. They’re afraid to shower in case they fall. The ones with dementia don’t even know where they are. Is this any way to deal with elderly offenders?
By Dave was 13 when he got his first custodial sentence. It was 1962 and he had been caught stealing from cars. That sentence was followed by others: he can’t quite remember how many. Gamely, he tried to count them: “I think it was 14 or 15,” he finally offered. He wasn’t always put away – at least seven times, he was given a suspended sentence. Three months ago, he left prison for what he swears was the last time, after serving 14 years of a life sentence. Today, he’s an old man. At 68, he spoke to me with as much urgency as his weak heart will allow, squeezing volleys of words in short bursts of breath before wheezing to a stop. He apologised for interrupting, and checked himself when he slipped into the subservient prison habit of addressing me as “Miss”.
In 1974, he was arrested for violent disorder. He was 25; one of the lads. It was his first time in an adult prison. “Prison was a place for young men: we were all in it together, you know?” he said. “There were some older prisoners, but not many.
