Look At Me!.. But Not Too Closely…

‘Truuuust Me!’ Says Binky

 

 

PLEASE IGNORE all that follows.. after all, I’m merely a privileged white male cisgendered Canadian elf. As a white male of my species, I’m no doubt a patriarchy racists sexism, and one of the micro-causes of endless micro-aggressions. Stupid fat elf. Boo, me!

Attention-seeking is a complex thing. What happens when you mix toxic ideology with deeply damaged or nasty people?

Serious fireworks ensue.. and perhaps some insights.

Doubting The Doubters

17stevens2
Me Spong! You Bigot! No awkward questions, please.

An Anglican philosopher friend of mine once took on the notoriously attention-seeking (but question avoiding) controversialist Bishop and writer John “Look At Meee” Spong. The crowd were mostly Spong-devotees, but my friend took his shot.

My friend said:

(1) You (Spong) assert that much of religion (& Christianity in particular) is actually a Freudian-style projection of father-issues into universal truth claims about God. (My Dad In The Sky).

(2) So your (Spong’s) view of God is essentially a projection of your (Spong’s) own interior father-issues (Spong had a bad relationship with his father, he reports) into universal truth-claims about God.

(3) Therefore: if you’re right, why should anyone believe what you (Spong) claim to be true or not true about God & religion, if it’s all ‘actually’ about your projected personal fatherhood issues, and not truth claims about what is actually real and true? Why should anybody care about that?

Spong’s religion = how he feels about his dead Dad. Right up there with his opinions on knitting, and eggrolls.

Wait for it. Booooooooooooooooooom.

booooooom

In that flash of simple logic, my friend demolished mitred narcissist Spong’s clever 50-year schtick of ‘trust me’ doubting, deconstruction, and the flawed thinking behind his ‘because Freud’ agnosticism.

Then It Got Really Weird

What happened next? Nothing sensible.

Bp. Spong wiffled, waffled, and then attacked (as usual). My gregarious & thoughtful friend was ‘judgmental’ and ‘narrow-minded’ and unpleasant and ‘fundamentalist’. That is, Spong The Famous Doubter could not– or would not– answer reasonable questions doubting Spong’s own doubt. Question ME? Name-calling, you bigot!

Here’s where it gets.. even weirder.

During a break after question-time, a Spongite woman came up to my friend, asking him to back off, and ‘be nicer’ to Spong, because he was a deeply damaged man, who spoke on behalf of so many other damaged people. Er, what-now?

Or, “Please lay off on the facts & logic and truth stuff, or any holding our hero accountable for his wreckifying via ideas, lectures, words, debates, books, ‘sermons’, TV appearances, and wealth & fame as a very public doubter and agnostic about Christianity, because.. feelings!” Leave Crazy Spong Alo-o-o-one!, cry the other crazy people.

How Very 21st Century

Public personas are just that: a public face-mask presented to the world. Anything can be behind the mask. What about the human toothaches, who enjoy making trouble? The deeply troubled but obnoxious, who are banging around injuring people and screeching about causes? Or the criminal, presenting themselves as heroes, whilst hiding dark secrets?

Even when we present questions, arguments, fact-checking and real data to the debate, we may be just scratching the surface of what’s going on.

Breitbart writer Milo Yiannopoulos wonders just how many troublesome ‘radical’ attention-seeking public figures on the Left are not simply voices for some progressive position, but underneath may be deeply damaged, malignant narcissists, drama-seekers, or hurting/ hurtful people flailing about injuring innocent people and breaking things, under the guise of activism, feminism, social justice, or whatever other excuse for being sad, bad, or bat-spit mad. He says (29:20 and forward):

“Very often you’ll discover deep dysfunction in their private lives, and my supposition, my guess, is that very often the business of engaging in social justice, of bullying of other people, the engaging in the Oppression Olympics  is quite often a sort of therapy for people who are suffering. It’s a sort of learned response to trauma.

Because after a while, you realize that so many of the ringleaders in this incredibly.. off-the-wall movement have such checkered, dark, you know, ugly pasts, of lies, drug-taking…. Very often because they are attention-seekers, they are desperate for affirmation, and for “Victimhood Bucks”….”

Strategic Butt Coverings!

asbutts

Recently, internets feminist saint Anita Sarkeesian told her supporters (US$170K on Kickstarter, another US$700K from various other sources 2014-present) that all her Feminist Frequency work is just too much (3 hours & 40 minutes of video, and related research, plus some articles, including her latest civilization-saving YouTube vid on, um, “Strategic Butt Coverings“). Pixel-bums. Not joking.

Mz. Anita’s easing back because– note this– she now tells us she’s suffered a life-long battle with depression & now burnout, plus some mean critics & anti-feminists on the internets are making her feel bad. But no refunds.

472733760
Depressions! Burnouts! Get my good side!

Who said what-now?! Anita: many people have depression, or burnout– such runs in my own family– but we’re not all swanning about with a cool mil, showing up on magazine covers & whinging at UN committees, getting riches & fame by preachily pissing on Men’s Rights, gamer culture, and men in general… all whilst having an undisclosed distorted and distorting mental illness. Publicity and followers and free money is not helping you get better, if you’re actually telling the truth about all this.

No, not all depressed people are unfit or ‘nuts’– but depending on the details, depression-things can make things appear much darker, more dramatic & ‘conspiratorial’, self-centred, scary or overwhelming than they really are. Hidden physical or mental suffering can be a circus-funhouse of unhappy, and not necessarily an accurate place from which to view the world, yourself, or others.

Binks For Rent!

For Rent Key Means Lease Or Rental.
‘Reeeeent Me!’ Says Binky

By the way, if anybody offers me a million dollars to regurgitate super-simplistic sophomore summaries of black Commie SJW Feminist Bell Hooks, I will also shave the Binky-pits, wear the Sarkeesian giant hoop-earrings, bright lipstick, plaid shirts and dyed side-locks. I promise to silence and mock anybody who disagrees with me, Bell Hooks, or Zoe Quinn, because Reasons. I will not plead burnout after my choice to spend 18 months in the public eye.

Anyone? Anyone?

Into The Bedlam?

2581530-unnamedjpg
Pro Damsel Mz. Chelsea Van Valkenburg, and her feline fur-baby.

Other hardcore Social Justice Warriors– like ‘Zoe Quinn‘ (a.k.a. Chelsea Van Valkenburg), or Randi Harper, or Shanley Kane— have more than proven themselves unethical, dishonest, troubled, and unstable people. They conceal their dark and crazy from their audience & opponents, and act out in various ways via ‘justice issues’, almost as a kind of avoidance of looking at themselves, finding treatment, or owning up to serious sins, crimes, or crises behind the public/ internet false mask.

Look over here! And over there!! Injustices!! Run! Hurry! Do what I say!! Self-awareness? Answering critics? Not so much.

The Unusual Suspects

Some ‘social justice’ progressives even turn out to be stalkers, male and female rapists, pedophiles, sociopaths, fraud artists and scammers, petty criminals, or compulsive liars, perhaps punishing others and society because malice, issues, or injuries in their lives. Not good.

Or, are you a well-connected and vengeful feminist bully (name rhymes with ‘Stephanie Guthrie’) who thinks they have a right to silence and lie about lowly non-feminist male scum who dare disagree via Twitter? Why not persecute him online, then drag Gregory Alan Elliott to court for three long years of frivilous misery, where the ‘due process’ is the bankrupting punishment? That’s here in Trudeau’s NeoCanada, but thankfully she lost (until the inevitable weepy legal appeal). This damaged chick should pay all his court costs, and for wasting taxpayer’s time & money. Ms. Guthrie can never give back his lost years. Nope, no issues or ideology there!

Cuffs

Utopian Ideology + deep personal problems = The Patriarchy is out to get me! I was Twitter-raped! They’re trying to kill me! All men are evil! Believe everything I say, or else! I’m being triggered! Intersectional micro-aggressions! Silence my critics! I have internet PTSD!! Kill all men! Help me, love me, cuddle me, give me a blankie and a teddy-bear, cuz I’m scared and sad and bad and lonely!!

It can get awfully ugly, when egotism, disease, disorder, evil, malice, and guilt is running the show.

Physician, Heal Thyself?

OK: Whoa now– first things first. This is not about dogpiling anyone. These people are people, and some of them really need help, or to get offline, and to shut up until they are better.

It’s simple, but not easy. Be healed if you would heal. Turn to God, and be made new.

This is at least part of what Jesus was teaching when he warned about being hastily judgmental (St. Luke 6:41-42). He was not in fact against judging– i.e., assessing something or someone correctly, in order to rebuke and/ or help them.

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

Blinded by a huge plank, O sinful bossy hypocrite? Then don’t rush into performing expert eye-surgery on others. Or: got am aster-plan to fix all the things, SJW? How about starting the fix-up with yourself, first?

eye2

If we are moved by love and mercy, and a desire to save & heal– and if we have seen, repented of, and confessed our sins & bad attitudes and mistaken ideas– then we have de-planked our own eye, stepped out of hypocrisy and blinding sin and harsh judgement, and become someone able to help others with their specks. We’re not moved by proving how wise and awesome and self-important we are, but by a healing which we humbly wish to share.

The Zombie Way

On the other hand, feeding off our badness and miseries to make others miserable and bad, is a destructive zombie-life. So is choosing to become creepy and more troubled, revelling in our depression, anxiety, sins, and hurts, and living a double life of public righteousness and ranting, and inward evil and sorrow. Why heal up from that broken leg? Keep limping along, and hit it with a hammer once in a while– and hey! Why not break other people’s legs with a hammer, too? Then, find all sorts of people to blame for it, make some videos and get a loyal following, then see if you can raise a hundred thousand bucks on Patreon in sympathy?

Not for this elf. Don’t listen to SJW celebrities– or anyone for that matter– without wondering who they really are, what motivates them, and what kind of fruit they bear in the public square and their personal lives. ~

Heart The Rebel Scum!

Canada's Hard-headed Tough-As-Nails Media Party Stands Vigilant, And Ready... to cuddle in Justin Trudeau's adorable lap.
Canada’s Hard-headed Tough-As-Nails Media Party Stands Vigilant, And Ready… to cuddle in Justin Trudeau’s adorable lap. Skweeeeeee!

~ THERE NEVER was a Time Of Pure Journalism, and as the 21st century schemes along, it’s clear there never will be.

In Canada, along with the Unelected Bureaucracy Party and the Robed Judicial Activist Front, is our collection of talking heads of the Unelected Media Party. A few journalists hidden in the mix– the rest are typist and hair for rent, expert at recycling the zeitgeist moment by moment. Journalling? Discerning? Warning & praising? Not so much, akshully.

Now, the collection of odd cats (including Binks) herded together by Ezra Levant and other survivors of the Sun TV wasteful experiment are no such thing as “objective”. But nobody really is. But we are now an important, honest, largely unpaid alternative for anyone seeking real news & opinion in Justinistan.. along with expat Mark Steyn and a handful of others.

Rebel Media: what we are is a rag-bag of people from all sorts of backgrounds, some journalists, some bloggers-become-media sorts, some free speech warriors, some religious, some not, all with a mild conservative or libertarian streak, and contrariness with the almighty status quo. Some of us are even former lefties and liberals and progressives, who have awoken from our fever-dreams and yelled “Stop! Wake up!!”

ringingloudly

The alarm clock is ringing: Obamaland is a warning for what comes next in Canada. The false North weak and enslaved has just become Trudeaupistan 2.0— the train-wreck will unfold slowly, expensively, and with all the usual suspects behind the scenes (The Strongs a.k.a. Canada’s George Soros & family, the Liberal Establishment, former PM Bugsy Chretien, and Justin’s collection of fails and ideologues) imposing every new bad idea out there on Canadians as if we were a collection of lab rats in a box, and not a nation with a proud history, some good qualities, and a bunch of adults formerly in control. It will be horrible, like watching someone you love being tortured to death… or watching the last 15 years in Ontario governance.

Use this. Let’s learn all the lessons, fight back, and hope for a better day on the other side of this four– or eight– year-long colonoscopy. It’s not all bad news, after all.

How much more important than ever is the Rebel Media idea– a Drudge Report Collective, if you will, with some folks with real media chops and political awareness, shining a spotlight on our new Glorious Leader and his court, as all the other unelected Parties in our land cover, fudge, lie, ignore, and describe in loving detail how very fine the new emperor’s new clothes are; how colourful, how finely sewn, how he wears them with class and– Oh!– that hair!

So tell your friends, your enemies, your family, your neighbours, and anybody who actually cares about “News news” as opposed to bulletins from the palace or puff pieces or The Crimes Of He-Devil-Man Harper, Part XXXIV— tell them about Rebel Media.

Conservative people of all stripes are still the majority in Canada, as in the U.S., but progressives like the Obama electoral crew and others who helped Justin Trudeau before, during, and likely after the 2015 watershed election know all about how to marginalize majorities, dividing and conquering, distraction, denial, dragging things out, hating on their enemies, being lawless, and waging unapologetic warfare on society as it is.

Kangaroo courts.. show-trials.. judgement by media.. activist judges ruling us directly.. government versus groups and individuals… everything is the government’s business.. all is ideology… a silencing of dissent or honest disagreement. The new unCanada cometh.

Spotted-in-Canada

Thus, Trudeau 2.0 is very very far from harmless. The progressives are crusaders minus a cross or a Christ: without hope of heaven, they must make heaven on earth now, no matter the cost, the waste, or the sacrificial crushing of the lives & hopes of the little people, and especially their enemies. There are now going to be two classes of Canadian: the loyal ones, and the traitorous unbelievers. Watch for it.

I, for one, along with many millions of Canadians, and all the crew of rebel scum over at Rebel Media, am proud to stand against the goody-filled tide of soft smiley-faced fascism which is sweeping the West, and now seriously engulfing Canada under the new regime of the smug doofus son of a devilish Communist wrecker.

As always, I am proud to stand with those who love liberty under law, embracing neither anarchy or slavery, even if we face a long defeat in the current phase of the slow suicidal death of the West. Or as Sir William Wallace learned it from his uncle in a different time of conflict and oppression:

Dico Tibi Verum,
Libertas Optima Rerum:
Nunquam Servili
Sub Nexu Vivito, Fili

“My Son, Freedom is best, I tell thee true, of all things to be won. Then never live within the Bond of Slavery.”

This is the Rebel Media‘s time. Let’s support them, as Canada’s actual free media– cough up those loonies and twonies and more. And by the way, thank you Mr. Harper: in so many ways, you did us proud.

We Won’t Have Any Nice Things

Digital Knighthood?

Gavin-Mcinnes-dating-2

~ FAR BE IT from me to ask if Rebel Media’s dearly beloved cross-eyed curmudgeon Gavin McInnes, Scottish-Canadian writer and reputed inventor of hipsterdom, really understands the video game thing.

OK, not so far be it. I’m asking. Watch his video first.. it’s just over three minutes.

Right, then.

First, Binks is one of those mysterious super-indulgent grown-up gamers without a life whom Mr. McInnes just cannot fathom. I’ve been gaming off and on most of my teen and adult life: board games, D&D years ago, computer & some console gaming since then– yes, including the original ‘Pong’ (Zz). I have a life: games are recreation.

Second, I do get #GamerGate. It is more mainstream man-hating feminism trying to control all the things, because most gamer and game-designers are male, and teh mens doing man-things is always bad. Social Justice Warriors hate free people having fun, not minding the politics, and not bending the knee to the domineering ideology of political correctness.

What’s not to hate? ask the bullies. EXCEPT– the Left-wing fascists got stopped, pushed back, and given a bloody nose. #GamerGate is a little good news in the culture wars, and a defeat for totalitarian feminism.

And yet.. quoth the hipster:

“There’s a layer of patheticness here, though, that no-one is talking about: namely, I don’t care if video games are sexist or not sexist or politically correct. Video games are for little kids. Why are adults playing video games?”

There’s the question. Or, to be more precise, why are young men and adult men investing time in addictive fantasy worlds, recreated history, crusades and quests and valiant deeds, and rescuing princesses and fighting dragons, via the medium of video games? Hmm.

God Speed *oil on canvas *160 x 116cm *signed l.l.: E. BLAIR LEIGHTON 1900.
God Speed, oil on canvas,  E. BLAIR LEIGHTON 1900.

The other day I enjoyed an extended online speech by a writer & friend of Teh Binks, Sir Charles Coulombe, on the topic of chivalry. The older relation of the sexes called for pursuit & resistance; heroism, rescue, and triumph; men offering themselves in life-long marriage, and work, and child-rearing; roles were somewhat defined, and people knew something of where they were, how they stood. Men could be the knight & lord of their own home-castles.

Enter feminism– or, rather, the wrecking-ball of Marxism and statism against the family, man-woman unions, fatherhood and motherhood, children as the focus of energy and hope for the future, forms of chivalry and gentlemanliness alongside forms of ladylike behaviour and restraint. Enter also the state– intruding by tax and red tape and busybodiness into the family, the basic building block and foundation of Western life & freedom: some women have, in effect, married the state– husbands are optional.

Comes mass contraception, mass divorce, mass abortion, the ‘sexual revolution’, and the loss of all the rules, except that men are bad and yet must man up, and women are good and should act sexually like the worst sort of men until their biological clocks go ‘ding!’, and then marry & settle down and pop a few spawn out. Yay us.

Chivalry-small

Except.. where are the men?– even modern women have begun to wonder. The younger ones are staying away in droves from marriage, church, university, commitments, babies, and difficult careers. With the divorce laws against us, culture & media & politics captured by feminism, and with the bitter fruit of 50 years of ever more divorce unsettling us and the institution of marriage, many men are opting out. Going underground.

Perpetual teenhood is endemic, but not without decades of good reasons. Peter Pan is the eternal boy: so are we becoming, as a gender in the West, in our Never-Never Lands. After all, if you were a young guy: which would you rather?

(a) Yet another college-enforced talking-to about rape culture and how you should know that rape is very bad, and that you– as a male, are a neanderthal rapist, but should not rape anybody, even though you are an evil rapist because you are male…,

Or

(b) The awesome new Batman game for PS4 or XBox 1, where you are The Caped Crusader, unpestered by whinging feminists, unpuzzled by high school or college women, where you kick ass, take no names, and fight for the freedom of Gotham from evil-doers?

Viva la revolucion? Underneath, most men and boys are mostly still men and boys, despite now a century of feminism and nagging and finger-wagging and re-education. Most of us still want adventure, to be brave and heroic to someone, to right the wrongs and lead and make a difference, to ask for a sammich without having our heads taken off, to sacrifice our lives for decades paying for and helping to raise children with a decent woman, all that old evil icky stuff.

Chivalry may get you dirty looks at work, in school, maybe at home, certainly in most areas of public life, but NOT in your gamer-life. Ding!

chivalry-isnt-dead

Games (and adventure movies) are part of the resistance– a man-zone of often forbidden, care-free, incorrect, and traditional thoughts, aspirations, and ideals. The horror!

Gavin is partly right: such geek-nerd-gamer culture may be partly about a kind of immaturity & playing kid’s games, time-wasting and such– but it’s much more than that, as the anti-GamerGate feminists know: trust them in this, at least. Games: engaging fantasy, freedom, princesses and babes & swords and dragons and heroes and villains and deeds of derring-do. They reflect that same streak of movies about the same themes.

Wanting to be a manly man, or a leader, or a father in today’s environment– unless you are rich or powerful– is just not on. Men and boys find themselves lost, puzzled, angry, and disillusioned by the splintered ‘Nowhere’ of modernity, by endless and contradictory calls to ‘Man Up‘ but ‘Don’t Be That Guy‘; to be sensitive new age manginas.. who nobody wants to marry; to be willing to slave and suffer as a husband & father.. only to be dumped and left without a home or children by some divorce court.

So just perhaps, dear Mr. McInnes, there’s a fire behind all this #GamerGate smoke, with the militant feminists smelling and hating the whiff of freedom and man-culture and olden ways and things they would destroy, that no man (or woman) may ever be free, or noble, or aspire for anything grander than the smelly little orthodoxies of political correctness, in the cramped and soul-killing world such social justice warriors want us all to live in.

Should men wake up, act in the real world, lead to confront good and evil in our times, and all the rest? Well, yes. But adventure movies like Lord of The Rings, and adventure gaming allow brow-beaten and puzzled boys and men to still have a sensation of doing the right thing, in an overwhelming real world gone terribly wrong.

Game On! ~

Sheesh.. men often work cold “boo hoo to you!”; women gets cold, it’s a serious thing, dontcha know.

~ JOYLESS CRANKS tempt me to be joyless and cranky.

I’ll admit it– I’m a contrarian. When Mrs. Binks had a ‘Do Not Touch’ note on a recent birthday cake, part of my brain was egging me on “Touch The Cake!” And so, here goes.

Soviet Canuckistan!

In the inhuman and humourless Social Justice Warrior view of Canada, anybody who makes a swear (gasp!), says what they (objectionably) think (scream!), or like to look at women (swoon!), are stinking testosterone-poisoned man-pigs who will be taught better, or else. And we will mercilessly judge everyone, especially icky men.

Sadly, the politically correct really do believe they can forcibly redeem humanity without God, and with an ever-growing tower of rules. Mob, rage, dox, outrage! And what happens when the victims of SJWs people feel they are voiceless, bullied, silenced? They may shut up.. or keep it amongst friends.. or, tend to say stuff even more extreme than usual.. or (horrors) act like ordinary humans– imperfect, sinners, not polished racists or sexists or perfectionists like the speech-coders and finger-waggers.

Globe Theatre Fire
Puritans, y u no like?

After all, if there’s no more outrage to be had, no more triggering and tantrums and jazz-hands and minding other people’s business, and acting in a way even the 16th & 17th century English Puritans who worked so hard to shut down the theatres, (all entertainments, whatever and wherever people might enjoy something) would find extreme and bossy– why then, the whole grievance industry might shut down, and then where would we be?

Burn It All Down!

Social Justice Warriors and their media-minions– like the NatPost’s Scott Stinson— are never happy, and everything wouldn’t be enough. Without actual glaring and horrific human rights abuses in Canada, with no hordes of Canucki Nazis swarming Canadian Jews (sorry, that’s Muslims.. we can’t threaten their ‘cultural traditions’), or pyres lit for every self-identified grumpy minority.. well, we’ll just have to talk about nothing, right?

Are you also telling those Canadians who describe themselves as homosexual not to be sexist in said manner? And these ‘Ice Girls’– are they, in fact, victims of white slavery, or people employed making a fair wage in an sports entertainment venue? Self-objectifying, or canny? Part of a plot to eliminate the Zamboni? We’d better inform the chicks that they’re being oppressed, and quick.

20130925-060258

The FHRITP guys are boors, poor excuses for men, and classless, but then what? Pillory? Duct-taping? Social-media execution? Firing a jerk doesn’t actually help him or change anything, does it? Or was this just some quick and dirty revenge?

What price, Mr. Stinson? How many human freedoms of thought, speech, association, free market, and minding your own business would you be willing to crush and erase for your notion of ‘casual sexism must die’ to triumph? Does this include all objectification of hunky hockey players and male athletes? No more semi-naked calendars featuring either gender for anyone? Human nature must be erased and scolded, not redeemed and transformed?

Cadres Of Harpies

Let’s not pretend, Mr. Stinson: behind your gentle finger wagging lurks whole screeching regiments of Toronto’s unspeakable Mz. Chanty Binx, would-be matrons and malevolent interfering hags minding everybody’s business, a tasteful low-heeled shoe stomping on male faces forever. If you don’t know that, Mr. Stinson, you are– at best– a useful idiot.

She probably won’t fetch you a sammich, men. Nor be an Ice Wench.

Here’s The Thing

We long for perfection.. that’s part of our spiritual nature, and longing for infinity, God, and heaven. Political perfection (let’s call it ‘Utopia’ = no place) cannot and will never exist, except as a horrible illusion built on blood and bones and torture and show-trials and kangaroo courts and concentration camps.

The perfectibility of human nature is a Christian idea, taught by Jesus, and only made possible by revelation of God’s love and law, and the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit: God is love, so love like God does, by his life imparted through the Son, by the Holy Spirit. We partake of God’s own life, to be like him, in him: generous, merciful, true, moved by love.

rainsfallsonjustandunjust

Counterfeits? Not so much. To try and make that perfection (your proper end, or destination, or completeness) is a gift of God, not of committees, yelling feminists, soft-pedalling journalists, speech-codes, rules, edicts, shaming, nagging, or minding everybody else’s business for them. That’s not any kind of love, except in a twisted, ugly, bossy, force-you-to kind of way. A bit rapey, in fact. Perfectionism is not perfection.

What Kind Of Love?

Now that we’re not at a wedding, re-read what St. Paul says in his first letter to the Corinthians, and to us:

If I shall speak with every human and Angelic language and have no love in me, I shall be clanging brass or a noise-making cymbal. And if I have prophecy, and I know all mysteries and all knowledge and if I have all faith so that I may remove mountains, and I have no love in me, I would be nothing. And if I should feed everything that I have to the poor, and if I hand over my body to be burned up and I have no love in me, I gain nothing.

Love is patient and sweet; love does not envy; love is not upset neither puffed up. Love does not commit what is shameful, neither does it seek its own; it is not provoked, neither does it entertain evil thoughts, Rejoices not in evil, but rejoices in the truth, Endures all things, believes all things, hopes all, bears all.

Love never fails; for prophecies shall cease, tongues shall be silenced and knowledge will be nothing; For we know partially and we prophesy partially, But when perfection shall come, then that which is partial shall be nothing. When I was a child, I was speaking as a child, I was led as a child, I was thinking as a child, but when I became a man, I ceased these childish things. Now we see as in a mirror, in an allegory, but then face-to-face. Now I know partially, but then I shall know as I am known. For there are these three things that endure: Faith, Hope and Love, but the greatest of these is Love.

The choice about what kind of Canada is rising on the ruins of Emperor Pierre’s Trudeaupia is getting clearer and clearer.. a veritable Soviet Canuckistan teeming with busy-bodies.

Read the rest of the actual story.

The science is settled! You know, like people knew for thousands of years that night air caused bad humours, and stuff. Or blood-letting was awesome medical practice.

So here we are 500 years later having devotees of the religion of Scientific Materialism tell us for 500 years a simple morality tale about science good, religion dumb (except for Scientific Materialism)– even if that’s not the actual story of Galileo.

By the way, before low-earth orbit, heliocentrism was not proven likely to be the case until Foucault’s Pendulum (1851) demonstrated the real effects of earth’s motion, and gravitational force acting on a large pendulum. Because math, and actual science.

Fast-Vorwarts

SUZIGORE

The mess gets worse. Much worse.

Here’s the theory. Some scientists believe that current global ‘warming’ is caused by the activities of human beings (hence, “Anthropogenic“= we did that). Therefore, we must go as green as possible now in order to save ourselves & the earth from climate disaster. It’s unclear what such experts think pre-industrial warming and cooling was caused by, but it’s their theory, not mine.

Such theories about earth temperature change we’ve been fighting over for at least the last 45 years (ICE AGE!! NOTHING!! WARMPOCALYPSE!) seem to owe nothing to the alleged respect for science, theory, evidence, experimentation, reproducible results (you know, The Scientific Method), and instead owe everything to social unity, big money, silencing other scientists and lowly peasant-critics– and if you listen closely, you can hear Galileo spinning in his grave.

482px-Galileos_tomb
Spinning, Spinning, Spinning.

Because many devotees of Global Warming are the most cheerful persecutors, maligners, silencers, punishers, and mockers of other actual scientists who ask forbidden questions, push the limits, or try to account for reality, versus bending everything to the theory. Global Warmists are acting like the lock-step Church supposedly did, and the global warming critics are in the position of Galileo, as represented in the false morality tale. It would be ironic, if it wasn’t so scary and stupid, and wasteful of money, time, and human effort.

Mark Steyn Rules

Steyn14-e1325697803855

“Big Climate is slowly being crushed by a hard, icy reality: if you’re heading off to university this year, there has been no global warming since before you were in kindergarten…. You would think that might occasion a little circumspection. But instead the cultists up the ante: having evolved from ‘global warming’ to the more flexible ‘climate change’, they’re now moving on to ‘climate collapse’. Total collapse. No climate at all. No sun, no ice. No warm fronts, except for the heaving bosoms in Rajendra Pachauri’s bodice-rippers.”

Mark Steyn, from Climate Change: The Facts

Those of you who follow happy culture-warrior Mark Steyn will notice that in the endless peregrinations of the lawsuit against him by Global Warming High Pope and profiteer Michael Mann, that it’s all about the ‘Shut Up, he explained’, and not the science, or freedom to question, or advance new theories, or even dare to make mock of the Global Warming crazy cult and its totalitarian leaders.

Really? Is that how your pure climate science, free from dogma and nay-saying and hidebound whatnot actually operates? Sounds like bad science to me. But the money is very very good, isn’t it, boys and girls? Mmmm.. sweet, sweet carbon taxes, research grants, and green eco-funding! False prophets for real profits!

After all, if religion tries to science, that’s not good religion; but if science tries to religion, that’s horrifically bad and false science.

A Plastic Intolerant Faith

climate_heretic1-cox-and-forkum

For lack of religious certainties, modern folks seem glad to take on the apocalyptic cult of impending floods, starvation, deserts, and disasters galore as sold by the Climate Cult. Repent! Curly bulbs will save your (electrical) soul! Recycling will renew the earth! Bending the knee to big socialist money-grabbing schemes is true worship! O give glory unto the bird-chopping wind turbines, the bird-frying solar ovens, the fish-killing hydro-electric projects, and the whole host of money-wasting boondoggles, because we can and must save mother nature!

And lo, let all them who saith ‘Nay!’, or ‘Can I see your data on that?’ be anathema, like unto publicans and sinners! Cast them out from polite conversation into the outer darkness of tin-foil hats, Sasquatch-hunters, and conspirazoid loser-dom. We are just SO much better than the doubters, skeptics, extremists, and icky persons who believe not! Yay us!

Teh Binks Goes Squeee!

horsehead_nebula-t2
It’s A Pretty Horsey!

I, Teh Binks, love actual reality, nature, and all of God’s works. Remember: I was raised in a home which loved literature, art, science, music, by a father who was an actual big-S Scientist in three fields: nuclear science, computer science, and medical science (pathology). In his later years he had no use for global panic warming: “Bad science,” quoth he.

There I was, reading Dad’s astronomy books and beginning to wonder: ‘How big is it all? How cool is that nebula-thing? What’s it made of? How big is it? How far? Can I see one?’ Binks-Dad obliged on many occasions with a telescope he could point to many and various wonders.

Observation, data, theory, proof, evidence. I get it. Yet in my bones I know that whatever the flaws in his science, the mighty poet Dante loved and grasped the whole cosmic and supernatural enchilada far better than the squeaking and hyper-pious mice-men of Global Warmistry.

So Please Just STFU

Dear smug true believer twerps Michael Mann, David Suzuki, Bill Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson– I am, in fact, talking to people like you, your minions and disciples, and all the credulous people out there who would rather believe in your fake religion, than trust their lying eyes, dissenting scientists, actual climatologists, and the data.

You all are not on Galileo’s side, nor that of humanity– and least of all, of decent science. ~

~ A DARNED GOOD THING it wasn’t a Tweet to the whole world, or it might have required some hard ‘splaining.

In a letter to fellow protestant Urlich Zwingli, Luther complained bitterly about the doctrinal anarchy that was even then rampant among the new sects of Protestants:

“If the world lasts, it will be necessary, on account of the differing interpretations of Scripture which now exist, that to preserve the unity of faith, we should receive the [Catholic] councils and decrees and fly to them for refuge.”

Oh dear. Luther, Mr. Protesty former monk “the Bible is all we need” and nail documents to the door, wishing for Catholic authoritativeness, councils, and teaching authority. Oopsies.

The Dark Side

Or, in our terms, “McDonald’s CEO admits he thinks Burger King Whoppers are amazing, and that McD burgers make him vomit.”

Or, the pants-down oops from a while back, when people noticed that MicroSoft was secretly making documents and handbooks using Apple software.

There’s a creepy dark side to the Protestant thing which most churches and history books play down or ignore completely. If it’s you & the Bible, why then, come what may, right?

Thus, you get the apocalyptic cults protestants, and the naked protestants, and the mass-murdering protestants, and the polygamous protestants, and the take over a city and declare it God’s Kingdom on Earth protestants, and the restless German peasant protestants (Luther approved as 100 000 of these were butchered), and the prison camp of Geneva protestants, and the scary English protestants, with their nooses and hammers and itching hands, stuffing prisons full of popish traitors protestants (Henry 8.0 alone killing upwards of 72 000 Catholics under various excuses). Because God/ Bible + Me = chaos, as Luther observed to Zwingli.

zwingli-1-sized
I’m Not Tingly For Zwingli.

OK, So What, Elf-Boy?

Binks has points, however afar off they may seem. The 1500s rise of the almighty conscience is part of our freedom, and part of our slavery. Witness our current plague of Social Justice Warriorism. It’s a form of de-Godded protestant “Because I Say So, Dammit” religion.

Who, after all, is to say who actually feels threatened, offended, micro-aggressed, or ideologically injured? Why, I and my tribe, with our special Leftist Knowledge Of The Mysteries, and because we say so. And if you don’t know, or believe, you’re not one of the special ones.

As far back as we can see, mankind is not just homo sapiens (wise man), but homo religiousis (worshipping man). The advent of atheists or agnostics does not make people unreligious, it just replaces holy things with other things, which then function as beliefs, deities, commandments, and suchlike.

Bullies, And Better-Thans

55262771

The average anti-GamerGater may or may not go to church (mostly not), but they have their absolutes of Feminism, Cisgenderism, Soft Marxism, Speech Control, and right behaviour, held so strictly and applied so cruelly that in most cases they would horrify the Catholic Inquisition.

Social Justice Warriors not only believe that they are completely and perfectly right, but that such rightness means they may be heartless bald-faced liars and bullies as required.

Hence, in the 2014-2015 controversy over gaming and feminism, opponents of the SJW’s were death-threatened, some lost their jobs due to malicious e-mails, and others were ‘Doxxed’, i.e., had their address and all identifying information put online for the convenience of stalkers, and/ or righteous mobs.

Shame On Canada, Too

In the very recent case of the Calgary Comic Expo, the Honey Badgers– including a CosPlayer, a webcomic artist, and a bunch of other nerdy types who were also anti-feminists, were booted out of the convention for ‘harassment’ which consisted of a polite discussion during and open panel on women in gaming. Censored, for opposing censorship. Silenced, for rejecting silencing.

Gamergate-Calgary-750-x-420

The examples can be multiplied ad infinitum into the worlds of politics, culture, and decaying Western religion itself, but the point stands: we are religious creatures, and yet we have a twisted attraction to forms of absolute belief which render us as gods, having terrible and merciless power over others, and we claw through everything and everyone to utopia.

It makes a horrible sense: if there is no God, then it’s all up to us; if there’s no heaven or last judgment, then we have to make it right, and do so now. Those who oppose must be cleansed– they are evil, or stupid, or both, and less than perfect specimens of the future, like us. Cue the guillotine, gulag, gas-chamber, killing fields, or merciless and horrid social media and politics of personal destruction. C’mon– they only look human.

What The Incarnate Said

Jesus-Passion-of-the-Christ-Jim-Caveziel-Smile-1024x768

Jesus took a very different approach from the wreckers and radicals of his day. The kingdom and right judgment require humility, discernment, great-heartedness, patience, mercy, no dehumanizing, and it’s not all over as quickly as we might want or expect. And: look to your own heart first, before pointing fingers. When young, the “bastard wheat” weeds look pretty much like wheat. Start ripping, and it’s bad news.

Christ told the Parable of the Weeds Amongst the Wheat (Matthew 13:24-43, RSV).

Another parable he put before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also.

And the servants[a] of the householder came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then has it weeds?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’

But he said, ‘No; lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. Let both grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.’”

wheats

Terribly, Terribly Wrong

Sorry, Robespierre, Lenin, Hitler, Pol Pot, and your mini-copies in the Social Justice Warrior horde: you’ve got it almost completely wrong. Lay down your wrath, false religion, cruel judgment, and moral superiority.

For the Lord Jesus came to call sinners, and not the ‘righteous’ to repentance, new life, and his perfect and eternal kingdom.

So the ancient wisdom is as new and fresh as the morning dew: “Seek what you seek but not where you seek it” says Saint Augustine. ~

Be afraid, be very afraid Alberta.. and Canada, because now Notley-style have-nottery will spread West from bankrupt Ontariostan, and affect us all….

Economics 101

Okay, so where does money truly come from? Four main places, say the miseducated Liberal/ NDP/ soft-communist wishful thinkers: (a) From the money tree, harvested by sparkly unicorns, (b) and from government cheques, and of course, (c) taxes on every possible thing and service and source, and especially from (d) taking back from the rich people (i.e., everyone on an income) most of the gold they pillaged from the poor & the union people, cuz otherwise they wouldn’t be rich, right? RIGHT?!!
Because, Where Else Could It Possibly Come From? --- Image by © Images.com/Corbis
Because, Where Else Could It Possibly Come From?
Although they never will, such Leftits really need to watch some Ann Barnhardt, and read some David Mamet, and stop imagining that it’s 1987, and there are jobs and money and taxes and no-worry Trudeaupian debts and endless social programs and money, just for a start. And Albertans of all political stripes need to stop wanting free stuff, and spendy governments generally, and taking good times and oil revenues for granted.
Because Leftits don’t money good, then taxes crash (moar taxes!), businesses suffer, jobs suffer, social programs close, personal and provincial and municipal debt skyrockets as the economy swamps, inflation goes up and taxes crash and jobs go away, and people leave the province– and the poor Leftits act all puzzled and stuff. Duhr.
Where did the magical sparkly unicorn go? Whither the money-tree? Withered, you say? Need some unicorn sandwiches, you darkly mutter? But.. but.. but….
super-cute-unicorn-cake1
After the jobs go, unicorn tastes pretty darned good.

Worth Every Penny

Free advice from reality-land via the elf, Premier-elect Notley: if you start yelling “F*** Off, And Go Away!” and “MOAR TAXES!!” and “MOAR Rules!” loud and long enough at your oil & industrial & business sectors, they will indeed eff off, and not come back until later. China or America or others will then come in once again, and snap up all your things at deep-discount fire sale prices. Well done, then.
Proof, you say? Look at Obama’s debt-a-geddon rolling catastrophe of closings, layoffs and unemployment (real rate: 23.2%, or 93 million+), business bankruptcy, money-printing policy price inflation, and ever-growing joblessness in all sectors except overpaid bureaucracy (and his golf/ vacation resorts). He actually did built that.

Where’s My Desk

Oh my sweet raspberries. REALLY?!?! You promised a $15/ hour minimum wage?!?!
NDeePee, why for howcum you hate business, taxes, and employees so much? Why? WHY?!?
So about the witless magical thinking proposed well-meaning $15 mandatory minimum wage thing? Yeah, Rachel, might want to go ahead and check with businesses on the U.S. left coast about how that’s working out so well for them right now, even before it’s official. Fail and double fail and bankruptcy and fail, and layoffs and closings, prices go up for everything and let’s all move to other provinces (or even U.S. states) thank you very much. Reality & money is awful complicated.
But– more free advice here, worth every penny– It’s no use re-inventing the broken wheel, Mz. Notley. The war on reality is always endless: learn from all the other recent & past other NDP/ progressive/ “good intentions” screw-ups, and just say NO!
keep-calm-and-bang-your-head-on-your-desk

And ANOTHER Thing

One more thing*– it’s not really about you, Mz. Notley, it’s about them. The prideful wasteful clumsy doofus Alberta PCs and mean Federal PCs.
skywrite
This election is not a giant swing to the commie side, I’m guessing. It’s a punishment and protest vote against the normal ruling party– as is the rise of the WildRosers. I.E., in giant letters blazoned across the skies: Dear PCs– VOTE and ACT like actual conservatives; walk humbly with your God and the fickle electorate; DON’T take our votes and good will for granted; apologize and make it right, once in a while. Not so corrupt, please, mmkay?
Next Stop.. Just Ahead
Next Stop.. Just Ahead…
If you’re not very very careful, Mz. Notley, your political graveyard is just ahead. Having your newb MLAs act like idiots, and your Leftard activist supporters to crow and talk stupidly about stupid things– like Mz. Nose-Stud above– because they won and forever so shut-up neener neener.. will just hasten the demise.
And: it’s not YOUR province, O Notley. It belongs to God, the Queen, Canada, Parliament, the voters, and to Albertans dead, living, and yet to be born. In that order, give or take. Don’t break it because stupid, or ideologue.
