  1. You're quite right, I can see the facts on the ground of richer countries having low fertility but why do we have the belief that we can't afford children because they cost too much? When the evidence is overwhelmingly that the poorer you are, the more children you have? It's as if we've been infected with a mind virus which creates this kind of contradictory thinking. I get it that women still have the majority of work in child bearing & rearing, even in this woke society we live in, so having a large family on top of a higher education and professional career seems too much to take on. Men generally also want the education and careers rather than role-swapping as home-makers. And people don't seem to like the idea of spending that extra income on buying childcare, when they could have luxuries. But the "luxury" lifestyle is short-term and we are literally dying out! The few people talking about it get accused of being conspiracy theorists in an attempt to silence us, which does look like an agenda to me.
  2. There may be a correlation but I don't see a causation between prosperity and low birth rate. I often hear young people lamenting about how expensive it is to raise children and they can't afford any more. At the same time families belonging to traditional religions often have more children even if they are rich, so it looks like indoctrination plays a role here, and most of us westerners are certainly programmed to want a hedonistic lifestyle with small nuclear families, often a long way away from grandparents and starting later in life to prioritise careers.
  3. I'm envious of you having solid fuel heating Mac, we live in a smokeless zone and don't even have a proper fireplace. Surely wood fires are net zero carbon because they're only releasing the co2 back into the atmosphere which the tree absorbed from it in the recent past. I suppose fossil fuels are doing that too but their carbon was absorbed millions of years ago instead, so they're still carbon neutral in that sense.
  4. Tick tock is from China, and there's signs they are part of the anti-western conspiracy too.
  5. There's continental drift which makes this plausible, although the timescales don't fit with human development. As well as alternative history of lost civilisations eg the story of a plane flying into a hole in Antarctica and seeing evidence of intelligent life.
  6. I wonder where the Americans got their Santa iconography from ... coca-cola perhaps (or vice-versa)
  7. A geologist I knew years ago told me the experts know that Antarctica has minerals and oil but they aren't ready to exploit it yet. Officially Antarctica doesn't belong to anyone but powerful countries have carved up sections for their 'scientific' missions.
  8. @EnigmaticWorld isn't it interesting how that country can face both ways towards the supposed enemies USA & Russia. Just imagine what repercussions we would face here in Britain if we decided to be a bit more pro-Russian?
  9. The ally bandwagon is another way to draw us into the woke agenda.
  10. This is a big subject, but as a general rule of thumb, a cleaner lifestyle free from toxins stressing our system would definitely be healthier for the whole of life on earth. Tho I remember from my school geography that the post-war 'green revolution' was when the toxins started being used in large quantity in farming which apparently did increase the yields - at the time there was some concern with over population and the Malthusian prediction but we were told that chemical farming meant there was enough food for all. But We're paying the price now with the long-term effects of toxicity on ourselves and the environment. Whether organic farming could produce enough quantity at affordable prices for very highly populated countries like the UK, that don't even grow enough food for ourselves as it is, is a worry for me.
  11. There's an episode of Ancient Aliens all about keyhole shapes and ankhs, it's a while since I saw it but I think St Peter's Square features in it. The keyhole shape appears in much more ancient structures too.
  12. I'm probably mixing up the Inquisition with the Crusades here, but their butchering started well before Protestantism, there were earlier competitors like the Cathars and other Gnostics.
  13. That's fake individualism of course. Passively consuming the pleasures which certain other people have arranged for you, and keep your brain doped up with addictions to pleasure chemicals like dopamine, seratonin and endorphins. There is a saying that the fool who persists in his folly becomes wise; but you need to do it with a clear head.
  14. That's the current name for the Inquisition. It changed its name again in June 2022 to Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith. I haven't heard him condemning their historical witch-hunts but then again I'm not a big Vatican watcher, though I was gobsmacked when I first learned that the Inquisition is still going. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dicastery_for_the_Doctrine_of_the_Faith
  15. One thing I've noticed is that my thoughts sometimes appear automatically as a result of other emotional and biological functions which I don't have control over. Eg when I feel hungry I get thoughts appearing about obtaining food, as if it's part of the survival strategy. Also the fight/flight/freeze/fawn mechanism creates a cascade of responses which include thoughts of fear, anxiety and anger which aren't consciously chosen. I only have a basic understanding of psychology but I understand there is a primitive part of the brain, sometimes called the 'reptile brain' around the brain stem which controls these type of subconscious functions separate from the executive function (which is what we normally associate with our conscious self and will power).
  16. Well that surprises me too about the debtors because for a lot of crimes the courts are pretty lenient here. And yeah, it's all very well us calling for good politics & justice but as these seem to be so easy for the globalists to infiltrate it all feels like utopian dreaming.
  17. I think we're both advocating freedom from elitist social engineering agendas but coming at it in different ways. I don't see this as a black & white choice between total anarchy (freedom for all) vs gated communities filtering out anyone they deem undesirable. In any case, freedom is a dream while we have such great inequality as your ability to exercise your freedom is proportional to your wealth & power. At the least I'd say that national sovereignty is necessary and proper democracy such as referendums and proportional voting to get closer to what people want. As a bonus I'd like decentralisation so that different regions or counties can have a degree of autonomy and variation. Call me a nationalist if you like. What is freedom anyway? In regular conversation it usually means individual freedom but I'm suggesting that freedom can be seen as a spectrum where individual freedom needs balancing with collective freedom. So we need the mechanisms to find out what the collective will is, and protect that from powerful individuals thwarting it. Conversely we need collective action to protect individual liberty. We need well functioning political and justice systems. If you want freedom for all and can find a group of like-minded people to set up a colony like that somewhere I've no objections to it if you can find some land with co-operative neighbours. Or buy your own island. However I know I'm whistling in the wind with most of what I say in this forum because the momentum is all in the opposite direction and censorship is so strict now that people who take action get cancelled pretty quickly.
  18. The reason why the multiculturalism happening here is poison is because it's involuntary and imposed on the ordinary people who never asked for it. The type of absolute unity you're describing is appropriate to a very rare type of person who is highly spiritually enlightened and has no cultural or lifestyle preferences. Even the Buddha and Jesus weren't that advanced because they had bias against women. Meanwhile back here in the regular world there is a lot of competition and the type of unity which most of us focus on is building our families, local communities and national society. Societies should be able to choose whether they want their communities to be based on a common ethnicity and ancestry, or something multicultural. I can say that in my city, while there is a certain amount of mixing happening between different racial groups, there is mostly a type of voluntary segregation between white, asian and black areas. I don't see us moving in the direction of national unity, rather we are creating a collection of power bases, each claiming that the society is biased and persecuting them and seeking to change things in their favour. It's called in-group preference and when the whites become a minority later this century, the other groups will increasingly assert their dominance as happens in everywhere else. The neo-marxist woke crowd are simply another identity group trying to shape society in their image.
  19. While we're on the subject of religion in America I came across this map of the 2nd largest religions in each state some years back.
  20. I'm out of likes but what should we look out for? And how to rebuild in a good way rather than in the Illuminati plan?

    Biased BBC

    Yes, they gave up trying to hide it some years ago and clearly feel confident enough to wipe it in our faces. I woke up to their bias during the EU referendum campaigning but really should have seen it before then. But then the commercial channels aren't any better, just look at the adverts we are bombarded with nowadays.
  22. Thanks for your detailed reply - this does chime with my reading too, although how they manage to keep control over such a long time is still a subject of ongoing research. The 'real' teachings of Jesus are contaminated and mixed up with much other material from other sources so it's not always possible to disentangle his own words. Same goes for most of the other ancient religions I guess. In any case I don't consider myself a follower of any particular teacher, I look for truth and wisdom where I can find it. Yes, tribal loyalty and community cohesion has a strong attraction and can cause us to suspend our disbelief of the rational problems with supernatural religion. And even to give up our freedoms to unelected authority. But we can still free ourselves one person at a time.
  23. @EnigmaticWorld Putin seems to have forgotten that Russia is a European country up to the Urals so he's including his own country in that condemnation.
  24. Only 10 years ago? Lol I used to live in an area in England with a high Muslim population about 30 years ago and it was already a done deal then. The local Church of England church closed down, was demolished and hasn't been replaced. Instead there's a large mosque (plus some smaller cultural centres which don't call themselves mosques yet) and Friday afternoons it's full of Muslim men wearing religious clothes.
