    Fears over China's influence on British universities as report warns dozens of nationals are working on sensitive projects at our colleges

     

    It just gives fuel to theories that the apparent geo-political conflicts and superpower rivalries are what's intended for the masses, but there's unity at the top behind the scenes. 

     

    Either that or it's a colossal cockup and naivety. 

  2. The only 'new' information I've learned recently is how fast Freemasonry is declining, according to some reports about 100 lodges closing per year in the UK. In common with other old institutions like the mainstream churches I guess. But if the higher echelons rely on subscriptions from the rank and file, it must be creating a financial problem at least.

    Possible links? they have a subsect called Order of Knights Templar Commandery. History also strongly suggests that many secret societies ended up being fused together to essentially be modern masonry. Now I need to read that book! 

    Information does suggest that they were adopted in/fused with at some stage. Fall cabal series does a good job of linking where they came from, interestingly Ukraine was one of the places one of these groups landed.

     

    I suspect as much tho I've not read it yet so trying not to over-step myself. It was published in 1988 so not very recent, I heard about it when reading The Templar Revelation by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince (1997) which was a real eye-opener for me. Even that book is 25 years old so I expect the research has advanced since then, eg the link with Ukraine is interesting. I can't believe the Templars just gave up after their suppression from 1307.

    He did buy some books at my prompting on the links to the Knights Templar etc, and the root of Masonry going back to some bloke whose name now evades me, but those books really didn't delve into any esoteric type connections

     

    I have a book I've not read yet read called 'The Temple and the Lodge' by Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh, on possible links with the Templars.

    The British monarch claims to be defender of the faith - taken to be Christianity, but so much of what is practiced in the name of Christianity is Pagan, such is the breadth & depth of deceit.

     

    Yeah it was originally the Roman Catholic faith, the Pope gave the title to Henry VIII ironically enough. And I agree there's a lot of Paganism in it.  Why not, all religions are developments of Paganism anyway.

    At least we actually grow rapeseed in this country so imo it's better than something else like palm oil. It's all symbolic so it's all about what mythology and rituals they are enacting.

    I think they are, this belief in a 'Royal Family' a special lineage with 'Divine' links is rooted in Paganism.

     

    The 'Divine Seed' or special lineage and being annointed goes back to the Old Testament and the OT is rooted in Paganism.

     

    Although the Bible doesn't authorise Kingship it accepts it as established that there are personages designated by God as special and hence designated rulers.

     

    It validates Kingship.

     

    This is superstitous Pagan horseshit rooted in Fertility worship.

     

    Belief or acceptance in a 'Royal Family' is putting oneself under the pagan spell. Yet even the athiests do it willingly, as well as the Christians.

     

    Pi, do you know about ancient pagan religions? I'm thinking that if the King/Pharaoh/Chieftain was also the head priest of the religion, then of course they've got a conflict of interest about keeping themselves and their family in power.  It comes back to promoting one's own family ahead of others, as does the whole aristocracy. Even if the King wasn't the head priest, they would have had the priests under their thumbs.

    its not about politics

    peasants will only rise once their lives get shit

    they are not rising up so they are happy with their lives

     

    There are lots of people worse off than us in the world who don't rise up either. Have the untouchables in India started a revolution? 

     

    Also I think there's a difference between happiness and pleasure. The economic and political system requires a  constant low level dissatisfaction with the here and now and restless for the next novelty, fashion or fix of stimulation and pleasure. As long as the system can continue providing shallow pleasures such as TV and fast food we are distracted from realising why we are stuck on the hamster wheel of desire, temporary gratification, then more desire. 

  8. My addition to the list: politics is marketed to the public as as a clash of personalities between this leader or that one. But the direction of travel remains the same. 

     

    We are trained by technology to have a short attention span, so we only notice the short term twists and u-turns, but in the long term, the direction of travel remains the same. 

     

    An antidote to this is to ignore the personalities and look at the policies enacted (not promised). Study history and the long-term direction of travel.

    the peasants are not  rising up so they must still be happy

      

    In my middle-aged life I've never heard anyone say they're happy with the politics in this country. We prefer to grumble in private and put on a brave face in public. The little hope that we've had at election time is always dashed, and over time it's created a fatalism that this is just the way things are and the ruling elites are always with us, as are the poor (to misquote the Bible).

  10. But he has to be anointed with the holy Chrism oil so he can become a Christ, an anointed one.  Come to think of it, those of who were confirmed in the C of E  were also anointed with the holy oil so maybe there's more "Christs" around than we think !

  11. There's apparently about 200,000 Freemasons in the UK (and 6 million worldwide if you believe the link below) so that's far too many to all belong to a secret conspiracy. As well as keeping secrets from us non-Masons, they keep secrets from each other too, that's the whole point of having different levels of initiation isn't it? The secrets of the lower levels were made public a long time ago, so if there is anything sinister about them I'm guessing it's with the top of the tree and a select few lodges. 

     

    Also when I used to belong to a Christian church I used to hear members saying things like they'd prefer to do business with other Christians because they thought they'd be more trustworthy; they'd also help each other out when in need.  I suppose that's the bond between members of any close community and not unique to Freemasons.

    We like it too but the beer is suspiciously cheap compared with other pubs so I'm a bit worried they're not paying the workers or suppliers very well, like the supermarkets don't.  Or perhaps it's all the other pubs which are overcharging?

    Well they claimed to be but I have my doubts. CBT is definitely not useful for serious trauma.  I have recently been doing Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy with myself and have actually had some quite useful results.

     

    Glad to hear you're finding something that works, even if only partially. I guess it shows the need to try different things and get a second opinion, not just rely on the first referral your doctor comes up with.

    Yes, it affects the brain. I received no help as a child. Family caused a lot of the trauma and at school most teachers were pointing the finger at my behavioural problems. And yes, I have live with the characteristics of complex trauma my whole life. I have helped myself way more than any therapist has helped me, tbh.

    Thanks, I have only ever been passively suicidal though. I actually have a ridiculously high survival instinct, but I am very intimate with despair. I think I can help myself. I am a very strong person, which is good. Thank you for your concern.

     

    I think dealing with childhood trauma is the responsibility of all of society really, not just psychologists and therapists.  Schools should have trauma awareness training and regulation techniques to get to the root of the problems rather than just use discipline to try and suppress the behaviours. Police too: some kids are so affected it's like having brain damage and punishing them just makes it worse. And yes self-help can be great; in fact a lot of it comes down to what we practice outside the therapy room, they should be teaching us techniques to use so we can become self-reliant rather than dependent on professionals all the time. I have the same approach with spirituality and religion: I don't want other people's answers all the time, I'd rather learn their techniques to help me find the truth for myself.

    its an old idea that the britons were driven into the celtic fringe but genetics is showing that actually there was no mass genocide by anglo-saxons. What's more likely is an inter-breeding. So many people who today identify as 'anglo-saxon' are likely to have genetics that go back much further


    A more recent example of this process would be the viking takeover of the northern islands of orkney and shetland where they then cosied upto gaelic women.


    Iceland was settled not just by vikings but by vikings and their gaelic wives. If any genociding went on it would have been more likely directed at menfolk, many of which would likely die trying to repel invaders

     

    The thing is, this feeds into the type of argument used by liberal globalists to justify mass immigration. The narrative is that we are already a mongrel multicultural race of many different groups migrating from all directions, so we should be welcoming the foreigners into our lands, businesses and homes, instead of trying to restricting immigration. 

      

    However just because there may not have been a mass genocide, it doesn't mean that the incomers (going back even to the stone age with groups like the Beaker people) just became friends and were welcomed in. The likelihood is that there was warfare and the previous inhabitants driven off the best land, enslaved, forced into marriage (if women). We have been replaced a number of times before now: the people who built Stonehenge genetically disappeared from the genome soon after it was completed.

    Thats what we are trying to decide - what to do with it for the best. Not interested in crypto as I dont pretend to understand any of it. Property doesnt seem wise at the moment and we dont want to buy gold/silver. Thats why I asked the question, to get some ideas.......................

     

    Hmm. Investing a lump sum is bound to be more risky than drip feeding into some market over the long term. So one factor is your emotional relationship to risk: if you'll lose sleep at night worrying when the prices drop then maybe the stock market's not for you. 
     
    It's a big subject but here's a few more ideas. 
     
    *  Keep at least 6 months' income in an easy access account for emergencies. 
     
    *  The older you are, and the nearer to retirement, the less time you have ahead of you to ride out downturns and wait for the next boom. So on that principle the more adventurous investments are better for younger people.  
     
    *  It looks like we're heading into a recession and shares and other assets like bonds and property seem on the way down so you don't need to rush into anything. You can put it in the building society and wait until things pick up again.  
      
    *  Make a will, or if you've already got one maybe renew it after you've received the money - there's various things they can do nowadays to legally reduce inheritance tax and limit care home expenses. 
     
    A financial adviser would likely give you a questionnaire to fill in with a whole bunch of questions to build up a picture. Eg how old you are, are you married, have a will, do you have children or grandchildren, own your own home, have enough saved up in your pension? Do you want to start your own business or prefer to work for someone else? What other big plans have you got?  Start with getting these type of regular bases covered before looking into sexier more adventurous investments. But if you've got an interest in something like art, fine wine, vintage cars, antiques or whatever, you can incorporate that into your portfolio too. If you want a personal investing forum, https://www.lemonfool.co.uk/ is good. 

     

    Edit: all those questions are just for illustration, obviously I don't expect you to answer them here. It's to show how much it depends on your circumstances, and what I would do isn't going to be very relevant for you.

    But there is a part of me which has often felt quite attracted to suicide. We have created a culture in the Western world of stoicism, suppression and denial. I can tell you all with no hesitation that mental health services in the Western world are failing and are out of their fucking depth to a degree which terrifies me. I have seen a handful of psychologists in my life and several of them more or less told me that they considered my insights better than theirs. In fact, it became pretty obvious that they had almost nothing to offer, "nice" as they were. They simply aren't equipped to deal with really severe trauma, like incest, for example. 

     

    So sorry to hear you've been through this, which no-one should have to suffer. Were those psychologists specialised in trauma, attachment and abuse work? There are some good ones around, but they're rare and getting funding is difficult. 

     

    Another thing I've learned is that there's no quick fixes. Trauma, especially with children, affects brain development and treatment needs to literally rewire the neural pathways into a more healthy pattern, otherwise you're left with chronic PTSD type symptoms. 

     

    So my message would be, don't give up, keep pestering your medical services for more help. Because at the end of the day, people just want the suffering to end, not their lives. It's when they lose hope of finding any other way out of the suffering that they think of suicide. I would like to rekindle some hope that life can get better.

    What would you do with it?

     

    If you have any debts then I'd suggest paying them off first to extract the claws of the financiers out of you. 

     

    After that, if you're not financially educated I'd recommend seeing a good qualified, independent financial adviser who isn't on commission. Because a lot depends on your personal circumstances and a good adviser takes it all into account to decide what's suitable for you. 

     

    Failing that, take your time educating yourself about investing, tax, meditate on your values and life plans, and make your choices informed ones.

  18. "Children Ruin Everything" 

     https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10738442/

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Children_Ruin_Everything

     

    This is a Canadian series which I haven't seen over here yet, and I hope I never do. Funnily enough it bucks the trend of showing young families as mixed race, instead it's a white couple having mixed feelings about being parents. 

     

    ' Smeaton described the series as inspired by his understanding that parenting "is time-consuming and expensive and frustrating. So I wanted to create a show that acknowledged that but also showed the other side, which is having a family is worth it.” '

     

    So why call the series 'Children ruin everything"? instead of something positive like "Children are worth it".

  19. As time goes by, it's becoming clearer that the conspiracy is taking off the mask, becoming more open with its actions, and more obvious to anyone with an open mind and access to relatively uncensored news. When we can see what's happening in full view before us, it's easier to decide what to do about it. I find that less depressing, and even energising, compared to not really knowing what's going on and feeling powerless to contribute to a solution.

    Cathars preached depop to all their followers, those others practicing celibacy did it for other (nefarious) reasons.  

     

    I've read that Cathars were dualists and, as Mac said, believed the material half of the duality represented evil. Would you care to elaborate on the nefarious reasons, that's piqued my interest!

    I care about humanity as a whole, not just some melanin deficient subgroup.

     

    Others have pipped me to it, but our melanin levels are appropriate to our climate (and there's variations within Europe too) so I don't see what you're getting at. Nowadays with vitamin D added to food and supplements available, deficiency is avoidable anyway. Naturally I also care about all humans, also other animals and plants, but this subject is whether depopulation is a good thing. Native demographic decline in Europe is not a good thing imo, and I would argue is being promoted by numerous policies. I care about decline of other racial groups elsewhere too, if I know about it, but I'm talking about my own community and civilisation here so I make no apologies for prioritising it.

    the 'perfecti' of the cathars used to shun sex in order to ensure they did not bring anymore life into what they saw as a fallen material world

      

    So they were dependent on recruiting members from the outside society (ie Roman Catholics) so perhaps it's not surprising they were unpopular and had a backlash. 

      Also didn't the Templar Knights have to practice celibacy (in the form of not getting married at least) and donate their land and wealth to the order upon initiation? So they gave their undivided loyalty to the order.  And the RC church also had celibate priests & monastics, but in those days the country as a whole had a high birth rate and families could 'afford' to lose one member to a celibate order like the church or the Templars, preferably not the oldest son who would inherit the family's wealth, so it wasn't a cause of depopulation. 

    Times are very different now, some racial groups like white Europeans are already depopulating without these spiritual-style beliefs (ps that's my conflict of interest here, I don't want native Europeans to die out).

    Hear me out…

     

    for those who are familiar with the belief that we live in a soul trap and get recycled back to earth over and over.

     

    I have come across that belief especially in Eastern and New Age circles, but I would like to dig a little deeper. Two questions come to mind: who gave us these beliefs, and who benefits from our depopulation? 

     

    Unless you have personal experience of the afterlife, the chances are that you've picked up the ideas from someone else, and as we all know, everyone has some form of agenda and bias. And very few people declare their conflicts of interest when trying to sell you something, even selling you ideas. 

     

    Think about it, if the people pushing these anti-life ideas practiced what they preached, they themselves would have died out centuries ago and wouldn't be around to persuade us to stop having children. 

     

    If we die out and they survive, then they inherit what we had.

    But we do have about 300 to 600 years supply of coal approx, but don't quote me on that there's a rather large margin of error in there but i'm confident the true answer lies between, which is plenty of time to go and rape Antarctica and demolish a pristine environment which will keep the evil shitheads happy.

     

    Agreed, we do have plenty of coal reserves and modern tech is cleaner at burning fuels like coal and domestic waste eg plastic and car tyres. 

    Antarctica's natural resources has been a secret kept from the public's ears for a long time, at least until the elite decide the time is right to exploit it, no doubt with some highly crafted international conflict thrown in for good measure.

    a radical expansion of homegrown energy

     

    But we don't have our own uranium mines in the UK so how is this any more homegrown than importing fossil fuels?  Also the way which British govts welcome foreign investors and companies to operate our energy infrastructure doesn't fill me with confidence. Although more diversification of power generation isn't a bad thing.
