She is a Socialist only insofar as she is anti-capitalist, a Marxist only insofar as she despises meritocracy, and a Freudian only insofar as she feels constrained by her sexuality. The irony of this negative identity is that it could very well describe a Fascist just as easily as a Marxist-Leninist Socialist, but Linnet clings to specific writers and ideas for what meagre positive identity she possesses.
In the modern world, there is a constant struggle against the unknown. From all sides, the modern, western, society struggles to disprove every superstition, every uncertainty and in doing so, society creates paradoxes and mental gymnastics, complicating the simple, for the sake of not having to believe.
It has often been said that the countries in which we live are no longer the one’s in which we grew up in. Political corruption, loss of faith in the democratic process and, of course, the ever present reality of rapid demographic change have made the nations of the West almost unrecognizable from what they were even a mere generation ago. The failure, or more accurately, the willing participation of our so-called leaders in our own ethnographic displacement has left everyone sane enough to recognize the outright betrayal that has taken place on the part of our own collective governments who– according to the principles of democracy– should have had our best interests at heart.
Mill’s concept of the value of pleasure is much closer to Epicurus’ than it is to Nagel’s, and he continues to say “the accusation supposes human beings to be capable of no pleasures except those of which swine are capable. If this supposition were true … the rule of life which is good enough for the one would be good enough for the other.”
Through our reciting of the Trisagion we are imitating the angels who perpetually glorify God in His majesty. This is further advanced by the act of ritually rising and falling during it’s recitation, always oriented towards the holy altar. We should aim to always incorporate the Trisagion into our personal prayers because in doing so we implore the mercies of the Holy Trinity into our lives. I would especially recommend the praying of the Trisagion especially during fast days.
Transgenderism is a weapon of social terror. It is a pseudo-scientific fad promoted by major media and old money foundations. The 2016 Annual Report from Global Action for Trans Equality states that 11 percent of their budget comes from the US federal government, while almost 85 percent comes from elite foundations. They thank the “State Department” as an important supporter. They also mention the powerful Arcus Foundation and George Soros as significant donors. Only 1 percent of their budget comes from personal donations. This is not surprising. This strongly suggests its a fake issue driven by elites rather than real need.
