The Normalisation Of Gynocentrism

By : Civilisation is based on the capacity of human beings to control and manage their instinctual and emotional responses and behave in an intelligent manner. The degree to which that capacity is eroded by lack of self-awareness, lack of cultural wisdom, lack of discipline, fatherlessness and superresponses to superstimuli, is the degree to which civilisation will decline, regress and then implode.
This ancient understanding that natural impulses can be destructive when taken to extremes, was known thousands of years ago. As discussed in Paul Elam and Peter Wright’s article, “Slaying the dragon”,1 this understanding was a major foundational element of many religions and is addressed in cultural mythology, such as the seven deadly sins of Christianity and the story of Odysseus resisting the Sirens call. This ancient wisdom was recognised as key not just to the well-being of individuals, but also to the survival of civilisations over history.
It is important to note that fathers have played a major role in teaching children to postpone gratification and regulate their instinctual and emotional impulses, as we have seen from Dr. Warren Farrell’s research2 into the boy crisis. Unsurprisingly and predictably, fatherlessness has been one of the main factors driving the decline of Western civilisation.

‘Oxbridge White Blokes’ Like Monty Python Have Had Their Day, Says Feminist SJW BBC Comedy Boss

Via Tim, J4MB: The start of the piece:
A young Monty Python would not get their big break on the BBC today because they are “six Oxbridge white blokes”, the corporation’s head of comedy has said as he launched a new drive for diversity.
Shane Allen said comedy on the BBC must represent the nation, with audiences discovering “the stories that haven’t been told and the voices we haven’t yet heard”.
In decades past, Cambridge Footlights was the breeding ground for BBC talent, from members of Monty Python to The Goodies, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie.
But times are changing, said Allen. He cited Famalam, a BBC Three sketch show with an all-black cast that fits the “comedy gang” template. [J4MB: We’ll surely be celebrating their genius in 2068.]
“It’s 50 years since Python. If we’re going to assemble a team now it’s not going to be six Oxbridge white blokes, it’s going to be a diverse range of people who reflect the modern world and have got something to say that’s different and we haven’t seen before.”
I’ve just taken delivery of the 8-series box set of It Ain’t Half Hot Mum. It cost £14.25 on Amazon. The series was broadcast over 1974-81. BBC comedy has, ironically, been a joke ever since.

As Trump Concedes, Europe Prepares Crackdown On Illegal Immigrants

By Tyler Durden: Just as Trump is set to concede in his crackdown on immigrant parents separated from children at the border by signing a "pre-emptive" executive order at any moment keeping illegal immigrant families together, Europe is about to crackdown on the migrant wave unleashed by Angela Merkel (and her various unknown progressive advisors, which some have speculated includes George Soros' Open Society) in 2015 with Germany's "Open Door" policy, and on Sunday countries including France, Germany, Italy, Austria and other EU states will meet to try to end a deadlock on migration policy which has brought to a head bitter political divisions in the bloc, and has resulted in Brexit in the UK, a wave of nationalist governments in Central and Eastern Europe, and the first openly populist government in Italy in decades.
Actually, scratch that: according to Reuters we already know what will be decided - a full-blown crackdown on migration, just in time to save Angela Merkel's job who was recently handed a 2 week ultimatum to resolve Germany immigration troubles by her coalition partner, the CSU.

Why Can't We Hate Men

Last week, an opinion piece came out in the Washington Post called “Why Can’t We Hate Men?” The author, a gender studies professor named Suzanna Walters argues that hating men is logical because men are supposedly responsible for vast amounts of sexual and institutional violence against women.

Government Eyes Are Watching You: We Are All Prisoners Of The Surveillance State

"We’re run by the Pentagon, we're run by Madison Avenue, we're run by television, and as long as we accept those things and don't revolt we'll have to go along with the stream to the eventual avalanche.... As long as we go out and buy stuff, we're at their mercy… We all live in a little Village. Your Village may be different from other people's Villages, but we are all prisoners. - Patrick McGoohan.
Authored by John Whitehead: First broadcast in America 50 years ago, The Prisoner - a dystopian television series described as “James Bond meets George Orwell filtered through Franz Kafka” - confronted societal themes that are still relevant today: the rise of a police state, the freedom of the individual, round-the-clock surveillance, the corruption of government, totalitarianism, weaponization, group think, mass marketing, and the tendency of humankind to meekly accept their lot in life as a prisoner in a prison of their own making.
Perhaps the best visual debate ever on individuality and freedom, The Prisoner (17 episodes in all) centers around a British secret agent who abruptly resigns only to find himself imprisoned and interrogated in a mysterious, self-contained, cosmopolitan, seemingly tranquil retirement community known only as the Village.

"Delete Your Account" Warns Virtual Reality Founding Father

By Tyler Durden: In a new explosive interview, Silicon Valley tech pioneer and creator of the virtual reality 'avatar' Jaron Lanier tells people to delete your social media accounts due to the strong correlation between persistent social media usage and a dramatic societal rise in depression, anger, and anxiety that he says is the result of internet-induced modified forms of behavior.

The warning comes in the wake of his new book which details how the creators of social media and the early engineers behind the internet "foolishly laid the foundations for global monopolies." 
Jaron Lanier is best known as a founding father of the field of virtual reality and throughout his polymath career has written extensively on human-computer interaction, including most recently in his book Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now.
