Some interesting stuff happened in the libertarian world yesterday.
A lady by the name of Pamela Stubbard decided to leave the organization Young Voices. She wrote a blog post explaining her reasons for resigning. The reasons involved morals and personal convictions. Pamela isn’t completely ready to give up some of the baggage, but she’s definitely on the right track; I encourage my readers to check out her article.
It doesn’t surprise me that the response from the milieu has been largely negative. Like most secular post-Christian ideologies, libertarianism does not take kindly to apostasy or heterodoxy.
However, It does surprise me to see what is being written, how the disagreement is being framed. It surprises me to see how quickly things have shifted left in the libertarian camp.
According to the new libertarianism, it is now oppression and bigotry to disagree or disassociate with things deemed “so much liberty” by individual consensus. It seems that in the absence of Ron Paul’s R3volution, libertarian feminists have successfully lowered the bar for not only libertarianism, but “petulant white girl” behavior as well.
If you’ve been paying attention, what you are about to read should not surprise you.
British Philosopher and self-proclaimed “futurist” (read: useless, overeducated, disconnected net negative on societal resources) David Pearce penned an article that drew attention from lefty Gawker science rag io9. The article, entitled “Reprogramming Predators” is part of his “Blueprint for a Cruelty Free World” series, which aims to eliminate, in a way which he believes to be realistic, literally *all* forms of suffering from this Earth. Including suffering by non-sentient animals, which puts him on a whole new level of liberalism.
How does he intend to do this? Why, by genetically altering wild animals to eliminate all predatory instincts. Pearce gets upset when wild animals kill one another, so he desires to put an end to the entire concept of darwinism. Ironic.
Life is hard. Life is really hard if you prevent yourself from living it.
“Fat, brown, femme, ugly and unlovable” Caleb Luna ostensibly blames whitey for his misery and perceived oppression. I write “perceived” because I simply cannot recall an instance in human history where “oppression” involved free speech and morbid obesity.
The obvious answer to Caleb’s misery can be found in a mirror. Seriously, you’ve gotta be a real dumpster fire to be too weird for Austin-fucking-Texas.
Alexander McNabb did an excellent job responding to Caleb’s article, pointing out the futility of the whole thing. I wanted to take things further. I want to drive home for my readers what truly makes this man so repugnant and unlovable.
So a pudgy white woman has found a way to validate her fragile ego and possibly sell a few of her stupid sex stories. Cue feels and empty “conversations” about society that do nothing for anybody, like, ever. Leave it to a generation of overfed English degrees to confuse empowerment with advertisement.
On March 24th, 2014, a pair of African American women hailing from Towson University (lol Matt Heimbach) won the Cross Examination Debate Association’s national Championship at Indiana University. It was a first for formal college debate–a pair of African American females winning a major national debate by a 7-4 vote.
1. Funny how “freedom” when dealing with human actors always becomes something inherently unequal. Jen ignores this. Of course. Jen instead projects a conception of freedom that involves reality catering to her wants. Of course.
Western societal honor has been sacrificed upon the altar of the post-modern. That’s the simple fact of the matter. Honor is now foreign to the mind of the West, and there truly is no standard set for the Western individual. Why should we hold honor in such high regard? What is honor? Why was honor sacrificed?
In all corners of the Earth where honor can historically/presently be found, it is generally defined the same way regardless of culture or region. Honor is the eternal reputation of the self. It is not necessarily defined by intelligence, cunning, strength, speed, or talent. Honor is worthiness, loyalty, truthfulness, respect, being well-mannered, having discipline, and being humble. Ultimately, one of high honor was of high value to society, and held in high regard. Therefore, the actions of the honorable were something to pay mind.
