The Exit Strategy Of Empire + Thoughts On Trump, Fake Patriotism And ‘Taking A Knee’

The Roman Empire never doubted that it was the defender of civilization. Its good intentions were peace, law and order. The Spanish Empire added salvation. The British Empire added the noble myth of the white man’s burden. We have added freedom and democracy. - Garet Garrett, Rise of Empire
By The first step in creating Empire is to morally justify the invasion and occupation of another nation even if it poses no credible or substantial threat. But if that’s the entering strategy, what is the exit one?
One approach to answering is to explore how Empire has arisen through history and whether the process can be reversed. Another is to conclude that no exit is possible; an Empire inevitably self-destructs under the increasing weight of what it is — a nation exercising ultimate authority over an array of satellite states. Empires are vulnerable to overreach, rebellion, war, domestic turmoil, financial exhaustion, and competition for dominance.
In his monograph Rise of Empire, the libertarian journalist Garet Garrett (1878–1954), lays out a blueprint for how Empire could possibly be reversed as well as the reason he believes reversal would not occur.

Being Nice To Women Is Sexist - Cosmo Cringe

Shoe0nHead: "Yes, men and women are biologically different. Women need more sleeps! Not at work though! You can't be like, 'women should get nappy breaks at work' and then also be like, 'm-wage gap!'"

Life Of Saints Chronicled Man’s Sexual Deprivation And Suffering

About 1700 years ago in Antioch in present-day Turkey, a wealthy, well-educated man of high birth loved a beautiful, young woman. Her name was Ioustina. His name was Aglaïdas. Aglaïdas didn’t merely have the high masculine social status that typically attracts amorous attention from women. Aglaïdas {᾽Αγλαïδας} in ancient Greek means “beautiful, splendid.”[1] Aglaïdas, like Ioustina, was also physically beautiful.
Men’s great love for women often makes men vulnerable to sexual harassment by women. So it was for Aglaïdas:

seeing often the virgin {Ioustina}, when she passed by on her way to the house of God, he was fiercely stricken by her beauty as if by an arrow — even though, with fasting and prayer, she did everything in her power to make her beauty wither and disappear as if it were a perilous and dangerous thing. Still, with his lascivious eyes, at first he would watch the streets and wait for her; and when he came face to face with her, he would shower praises on her, extol her beauty, and laud her good fortune.

People Ignore Facts That Contradict Their False Beliefs

By Eric ZUESSE: The more people there are who ignore facts that contradict their beliefs, the likelier a dictatorship will emerge within a given country. Here is how aristocracies, throughout the Ages, have controlled the masses, by taking advantage of this widespread tendency people have, to ignore contrary facts: 
What social scientists call “confirmation bias” and have repeatedly found to be rampant,* is causing the public to be easily manipulated, and has thus destroyed democracy by replacing news-reporting, by propaganda — ‘news' that’s false — in a culture where lies which pump the agendas of the powerful (including lies pumped by the billionaire owners of top ‘news’media and of the media they own) are almost never punished (and are often not even denied to be true). Thus, lies by those powerful liars almost always succeed at enslaving the minds of the millions, to believe what the top economic-and-power class want those millions of people to believe no matter how false it might happen actually to be.

Jew Soros-Affiliated, Radical-Feminist Organisation Wants Potentially Dangerous Female Criminals OUT Of Prison

By Jordan Holbrook: On my personal blog and YouTube channel, I have been running something I call the “Women Who Should Be In Prison” series which notes instances where women are let-off from prison-worthy offences because “muh, women”. Sometimes the Judges outright state their sexism, sometimes they hide it by saying they are releasing a “mother”, rather than releasing a woman. To my knowledge, no such release has been afforded to a father.
In the case of Karolina Szumko, whose offences included Racially-Motivated Abuse, Assault and Drunken & Disorderly Behaviour, she was let off because the Judge did not want to “send a lady to prison for something like this”. That is a direct quote from the judge. How is she a lady when she’s out committing very un-lady-like behaviour such as this?
Or, there’s the case of Terry Remmer, who did break into the house of an elderly man, stole his possessions and sold them on for drug money. She has a history of convictions, including shoplifting and theft. The Judge remarked: “The gravity is that if you were a man you would be going to prison today [Emphasis mine] … But I have to take into account not only your welfare but the welfare of your child.” Yes, a drug-addict kleptomaniac needs to be with her child because she is not a man.

Male Feminists Beware

johntheother said. "If somebody is lying about being a victim in the first place, then there's no trauma to begin with and the claim that they would be re-victimised, in the process of either reporting or going through cross examination in a court, is a self detonating contradiction."
