  1. You're quite right that this is the default way of parenting we pick up from society, but there are others. I'm trying to use Therapeutic Parenting and the PACE model with my child but it's like trying to deprogramme myself from the social norms. I believe if we can overcome the guilt, shame and general traumas etc then we will create more well-adjusted families with young people who grow up to like being parents themselves, thus creating a sustainable community. I've known many people who grew up in dysfunctional families (due to a dysfunctional cult controlled society) and did not want to repeat the same mistakes so had none or few children. Leading to the depopulation and mass immigration we have today.
  2. I'm not a Muslim and don't know many so with this caveat here's my tuppence. It seems to me that Islam is a very conservative religion, in that there's lots of rules for the members to follow (including all aspects of life not just religion), and not much flexibility for the individual to decide for themselves. In that respect it's very black and white, you either accept the package as a whole or none of it: you can't pick and choose. I do think Islam needs more critical scholarship to deconstruct the texts and free us from a simplistic literal reading, just as happened with the Bible over the past 200 years or so. Or perhaps this work has been done but needs more publicity for a wider audience. Islam is very dependent on the Koran, as the mainstream belief is that it was literally dictated to Mohammed by the Angel Gabriel; therefore it's fragile because any successful challenge to just one verse of the Koran brings down the whole edifice. Most Muslims aren't ready for a liberal metaphorical interpretation in the way that many Christians are IMO. A dark side to Islam is its imperialism which is not really admitted to. It conquered a large territory and expanded as far as Africa, Europe and India trying to convert us and bring us into their caliphates and they also practised slavery. Many Muslim countries make it difficult for other religions to thrive, especially non-Abrahamic religions like paganism and Buddhism. Do Muslims feel ashamed of their imperial past in the way that Europeans are taught to be?
  3. Being white these days means that standing up for yourself like everyone else does gets you pilloried as an extremist, using your privilege to oppress the non-whites.
  4. Oh dear, you mean all those metropolitans will need to stop eating all that imported food to save on transport emissions? Oh no I forgot it's the BBC they're telling us over-rich westerners to eat less meat & dairy and have more vegan food. For a moment there I thought they would suggest more self-sufficiency but that doesn't fit the global agenda does it.
  5. As they say, everything is connected, it's all one extended system. Low birth rate is one of the western features which Israel doesn't copy. We in the west have been programmed to think that we can't afford to have more children, but when you look at the birth_rate figures, it's the poorest countries which have the highest birth rates. Which is where many of those migrants are coming from.
  6. We give them aid abroad and at home, they must think we've got money to burn and we become a magnet. What do other countries really think about us, our immigration policy and general demographic decline I wonder.
  7. I can't decide whether to get cremated or buried when I die, being a traditionalist I prefer the idea of burial which preserves any evidence as Mac says, though it's more expensive. Reading up about Baal I've learned that the word is more of a title than a name of a particular god, and I've found this sacrifice reference in wiki to Ba'al Hammon: "Rather than the bull, Baʿal Hammon was associated with the ram and depicted with his horns. The archaeological record seems to bear out accusations in Roman sources that the Carthaginians burned their children as human sacrifices to him." Ba'al Hammon was possibly known as the Lord of the Brazier which is another fire connection, and also identified with Saturn. I don't know of a connection with modern cremation but I suppose our recent acceptance of it has occurred alongside the decline in Christianity which mostly opposed it.
  8. Former spies? Pull the other one
  9. It's a great vision but I think there's a lot more to it than just retiring the monarchy. At the moment the UK and especially England is completely controlled by the globalist cryptocracy who will fight tooth and nail to stop us having independence and freedom. We were after all the first victim of the British Empire and the monarchy is just the tip of the iceberg in the scale of the challenge we're facing. I'm not sure which commonwealth you're referring to - what goes by that name is basically the remnant of the British Empire which doesn't affect us ordinary people very much.
  10. The voting systems (and funding of parties) we have results in space for only two effective political parties in each nation, meaning that Labour and Tories both go for the middle ground which is largely made up of those middle-class, middle-income, educated liberal voters, who are the swing voters. The traditional working class have nowhere else to go apart from Labour, and the upper class high-earners likewise have nowhere else to go apart from Tory. Therefore there's less motivation for either party to worry about their traditional base. The middle ground is more amenable to globalism, multiculturalism and corporatism because they haven't seen the straws in the wind of the encroaching cryptocracy. So the Tories become more socialist and Labour becomes more capitalist. This was upset a little in the 2019 election when the Red Wall was persuaded to vote Tory because of one-off factors like Labour's stance on Brexit and the populism of Boris, but this may well be overturned next time. However you only need to persuade people to vote for you, not actually do the policies because we've got such short attention spans. We've been trapped in this political hamster wheel since the beginning of democracy.
  11. The most charitable explanation I have is that the powers are being pragmatic and applying the maxim of 'the end justifies the means'. Instead of consistent moral principles we have contradictions and double standards. In which case we have to ask ourselves what are the real ends they are working towards. Of course by their own actions they have created a precedent that lying is acceptable ("Israel doesn't have nukes" justifies the ends) so we have to take everything else with a pinch of salt. I'm not only referring to the US-Israel relationship here of course, many other countries use this so-called "diplomacy".
  12. @Ethel well I've no great preference between constitutional monarchy and a republic so I'm not offended but at least it's good to see your passion for this stuff and I hope you decide to stay in the forum. I don't know enough about anarchy to give a good reply apart from the usual what-if scenarios. Whether we keep the monarchy or go for a republic, I'd advocate sovereignty for the British nations and either dissolving the union or relegating it to a subordinate status. Then let the nations decide their destiny themselves. We need more decentralisation and local powers at least, even if I'm not ready for full-on anarchism yet .
  13. If you follow the money, this way of doing it channels money from govt borrowing, to the govt, back to the taxpayers in the form of handouts, and then on to the banks, energy companies and other corporations. And we still have to repay the debt to the banks plus interest. They could just use price caps, tax cuts or minimum wage increases to help us out, but then we aren't the main beneficiaries of this whole money vortex.
  14. The more I think about it, the more that things like the non-proliferation treaty and international aid ( civil and military) looks like a scheme to keep small countries dependent on the superpowers and compromise their independence. Preventing places like Ukraine and Taiwan having them makes them rely on the US and effectively become part of the empire. We were told that MAD, mutually assured destruction, from nukes has kept the peace in Europe since WW2 so we need them. But there's a different rule for others. And now they're trying to bring in "international law", which implies international courts and international government. Ie a single authority merging together the superpowers. No wonder the left like it to deal with the middle east: problem/reaction/solution again.
  15. @legion ah yes I remember the Mordecai Vanunu story. Not good, but I don't see the answer as unilateral disarmament. It looks like Israel only has nukes for themselves, they're not proliferating to other countries are they? Israel could simply admit to their nuclear arsenal. The US policy, as a nuclear power itself, doesn't make sense to me. To be consistent they'd have to stop funding themselves or do unilateral disarmament first, before they stopped funding anyone else. This is also why I don't get the campaign against Iran having nukes too, when it's mostly nuclear powers trying to stop them.
  16. Wiki says that the size of the observable universe is 93 bn light years, and the total size is unknown. So, maybe there is 'dark space-time' beyond the end of the visible universe, rather like there's dark matter and energy. I find it strange that the size of the universe is 93 bn light years when it's only 13.8 bn years old, so it's expanded faster than the speed of light. Due to inflation in the first fraction of a second after the big bang.
  17. I think I'm with Israel on this one. Why should the globalist UN pick them out individually when there's plenty of other countries with nukes too? I could understand it if they had a resolution on multilateral disarmament for every nuclear power, but unilateral disarmament? Wind your neck in. We should leave the UN.
  18. "What is the Purpose of Religion?" There's so many different types of religion and the question appears to be trying to generalise. I'd say both purpose and religion are human creations, therefore are we wishing to create something monolithic; something which expresses our individuality; or perhaps a mixture? For myself I realised some time ago, after trying and failing to belong to various traditions, that I'm better off being religiously self-employed. I've found meaning and purpose in searching for a reconciliation between unity and diversity. Wholeness and fragmentation. Earlier in the thread @shabbirss said 'everything is connected'. Well, that's true if you've got a belief that there are multiple 'things' which need connecting up. How about if reality is only one 'thing' which just appears fragmented because that's how our minds work? What if the distinctions between things are relative to our thoughts? Are the waves in the ocean connected together, or is it just all one ocean? It could be both depending on your perspective. If you want to divide it up into waves, what's connecting them is the rest of the deep ocean, which is far larger. In broader terms, the relationship between things is the rest of the universe. It's not so much divide and rule, but divide and relate.
  19. What does he mean, surely "father" is just being used as a metaphor for our human parent? I had a father and I am myself a father. Very much here on Earth.
  20. Originally the word pagan was used by urban people as a term of abuse about the uncivilised rustic country folk, rather as we have terms like bumpkin and redneck. In other words, pagans were people who lived away from the centre of authority and control, their religion more local and home-grown such as the spirits inhabiting their local area. So I'd say the good paganism, like other good religion is based on the sovereignty of the ordinary believers, with self-responsibility and not giving away their spiritual authority (ie authorship) to a centralised hierarchy, usually based in the city.
  21. There's a war against masculinity, and fertility in general in the western world. Masculinity is demonised as 'toxic masculinity'. As long as trt is kept on a small scale and not challenging the infertility effects of all the artificial chemicals and LGBT agenda it'll probably be tolerated and kept under medical control.
  22. Which ties into the legend of Theseus killing the Minotaur, and that legend echoing the Minoan religion of Bull worship and domination of the Greeks at that time. But on the other hand, the Royal obsession with bloodlines and fertility is arguably just a supersized version of regular people's desire for children and family as a way to get continuity and overcome the destruction and decay of death. Projected onto the whole tribe or society, as it were.
  23. I agree but they also hoodwink the ordinary members of the parties, and even many MPs, as well as the public, into thinking there is a genuine political democracy.
  24. I just looked at the ingredients in my cheap brand of moisturiser and realised I've no idea what many of those chemicals are. So from now on I'm going to try using simple olive oil instead.
  25. The whole system is designed to absorb minorities into the mainstream and neutralise them as much as possible. When you look at the main political parties they are made up of a coalition of different factions held together by mutual desire for survival and power in the first-past-the-post electoral system. This is also the globalist agenda for us, as our local identities are subordinated to the global hive mind out of a belief that's what we need for our survival. Anyone who tries to keep hold of their culture and identity separate from the global hegemony is labelled extremist, far-right or far-left, and a threat to peaceful society. Even as that very society crumbles and is replaced.
