Developing an Effective Pre-Disposition for Violence


(My buddy Greg Ellifritz, of Active Response Training, linked to this older article the other day. I hadn’t read this one in a while, so I went back and re-read it. I stand by the article still, so decided to use it for this week’s feature post. We’ll go back to the Off-Grid discussion next week. –JM)

Originally published 7MAY2014.

I had a student in a class recently (IIRC, it was the Iowa Combat Rifle course, but I could be mistaken), ask the very serious question, “How do we prepare mentally for the act of killing another person?” While, after giving him the tongue-in-cheek answer of “go chop people’s heads off with a pen knife?” I gave the legitimate answer that it’s a matter of overcoming cultural conditioning, it’s a question that’s been nagging at my conscience ever since.

For the most part, neither I, nor…

The Warwolf by Hermann Lons

A student in a class in Idaho asked me about this book, several years ago, and I had to admit I’d never heard of it. He told me he’d read it, but it was hard to find on Amazon at a reasonable price, so he wanted to send me a copy. He did, and I set it aside for a couple weeks, thinking I’d get to it eventually. Then, I had some time one day, and sat down to check it out. I went to sleep that night at 4AM, because I couldn’t stop reading it until I was done.

This book is what I would’ve written, if I were going to write a novel, I like to think. It’s got everything that fascinates me: there’s guerrilla warfare, set in the Thirty Years War, with a local guy taking charge and gathering the people of…

Tools-DeWalt are ok, if you get a chance at a Milwaukee fuel set- jump on it.  Milwaukees cordless are all awesome, cordless saws-all’s will trash your batteries, break the connection between the battery cells (they can be repaired.. I think) cordless grinders and circular saws pull too much power to be useful.

We caught the water from a spring on a hill and used the water to pressurize a 2” line to a barn on the next hill, minimal power and had running water.  Bucketing  water sucks, build a spring development.

I follow several others that live similarly to you, I have never seen a wood gasifier. The Nazis used them, not like they are old freaking tech.   The process is not that complicated, shit look close at a pile of real ground mulch it’s not steaming, the heat from composting is releasing wood gas.  Wood gas, once filtered…

Philosophical Skeleton Keys: Facts Are Fossils of Acts

The Orthosphere

Of all the Philosophical Skeleton Keys I have written about, this one is the hardest. Not because it is inherently complicated, but rather because it is so simple, and so powerful; and because the moment I understood it so many perplexities so completely vanished that I have now but little recollection of them. So completely did this Key dispose of so many problems, that I cannot now well remember what most of them even were!

I use this Key all the time; so often, that I don’t usually notice having done so.

It opens all sorts of locks, but I suppose that the most important of them is the Hard Problem of Consciousness, as David Chalmers has called it: namely, how do you get awareness out of the coordinate activities of trillions of particles that – on the usual modern construction of “matter” – are not themselves at all…

What It Is Like To Be a Secondary Cause

The Orthosphere

As the First Cause of everything, God is the primary cause of everything. Creaturely agents are secondary causes. They have effects of their own, arising from endogenous factors, and not only from God. Where in our inner phenomenal life does the influence of the divine primary cause leave off, and our own work as agents and secondary causes – co-creators with God, or as Tolkien called us, sub-creators – begin?

The Week In Doom — You WILL Bake The Cake Edition

Item Again: Masterpiece Cakeshop Sued For Third Time For Refusing To Make A Cake That Conflicted With Owner’s Religious Beliefs

Transgender woman Autumn Scardina filed a second lawsuit against Phillips last Wednesday in District Court for the city and county of Denver, Colorado.

In the new lawsuit, Scardina claimed that Phillips violated Colorado’s Anti-Discrimination Act and Consumer Protection Act by refusing to bake what the plaintiff labeled a “birthday cake.”

The “birthday cake” as described in the lawsuit, which was to be blue on the outside and pink on the inside, was supposed to symbolize Scardina’s transition from male to female…

In the past year alone, Phillips has declined several requests to create custom cakes because of the messages that they would have communicated or the events that they would have celebrated. Phillips believes that many of these requests are not genuine; rather, they are setups designed to get him to decline the desired message. Phillips believes that the originator of a number of these requests is attorney Autumn Scardina. In late September 2017, someone emailed Phillips asking for a custom cake “to celebrate” Satan’s “birthday.”

The customer requested that the cake have “red and black icing” and include “an upside down cross, under the head of Lucifer.”

The customer described the cake as “religious in theme” and reminded Phillips that “religion is a protected class.”

Phillips declined to create that cake because it included designs that would have expressed messages in violation of his religious beliefs. A few days later, someone called Phillips asking for a similar custom cake. Phillips noticed that “Scardina” appeared on the caller-identification screen. Phillips believes that the caller was Autumn Scardina. The caller asked Phillips to create a “birthday” cake for Satan. The caller requested that the cake feature a red and black theme and an image of Satan smoking marijuana. Phillips declined to create that cake because it included designs that would have expressed messages in violation of his religious beliefs. On June 4, 2018, the day that the Supreme Court issued its Masterpiece decision, someone emailed Phillips claiming to be “a member of the Church of Satan.”

Trannies are insane, which is still, at this writing, the official medical view. But that will change as the perversion becomes more common. A tranny lawyer is anyway the worst of two worlds.

Our nation’s highest religious ideal is sexual perversion. So bend over and take it. You will bake that cake. Or sell those flowers.

Item Court Rules Christian Florist Broke Law by Refusing to Participate in Gay Wedding

The Washington State Supreme Court unanimously ruled that a Christian florist broke the law when she refused to participate in a gay wedding ceremony.

Barronelle Stutzman, the owner of Arlene’s Flowers, violated the state’s anti-discrimination law by declining to provide floral arrangements for the 2013 same-sex wedding of Robert Ingersoll and Curt Freed…

“The state not only went after Barronelle’s business but also sued her in her personal capacity—putting all her personal assets, including her life savings, at risk,” said Alliance Defending Freedom’s Kristen Waggoner, who argued on Stutzman’s behalf before the Washington Supreme Court in 2016.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorney John Bursch said they plan to appeal the case to the U.S. Supreme Court — setting up a clash over gay rights and religious liberty.

The court is packed with progressives and progservatives, with only two reliable reactionaries. Sodomy is more appealing to the majority than Christianity. Yet they do have the explicit written words of the Constitution to overcome. Not that they can’t. But that it will have to be an act of supreme contortion (get it? get it?).

My guess is that Stutzman loses; i.e. Truth and Reality loses. They’ll simply argue that if you’re in the flower (or whatever) business, than you have to provide for all. That you, the florist, are not participating in perversion, you’re only making flower arrangements. Flowers are only flowers. What people do with them when they get them out of the shop is their own business. And that you’re free to “practice” your religion (i.e. Christianity) in church. That is, after all, the trend.

Item Failure to find a sexual partner is now a DISABILITY says World Health Organisation

But now in dramatic move the World Health Organisation will change the standard to suggest that a person who is unable to find a suitable sexual partner or is lacking a sexual relationship to have children – will now be equally classified as disabled.

WHO says the change will give every individual “the right to reproduce”…

Under the new rules, heterosexual single men and women and gay men and women who want to have children will now be given the same priority as a couple seeking IVF because of medical fertility problems…

Josephine Quintavalle,from Comment on Reproductive Ethics added: “This absurd nonsense is not simply re-defining infertility but completely side-lining the biological process and significance of natural intercourse between a man and a woman.

“How long before babies are created and grown on request completely in the lab?”

But Dr David Adamson, an author of the new standards, argued it is a “big chance” for single and gay people.

Not for the last time I link to Logan’s Run. Notice, though, what is happening. The LGBTQWERTY crowd (“community”) engages in non-procreative sex-like acts; almost all acts are masturbation in one form or another. It follows that no child can follow from masturbation. Yet some of these masturbators (a sexual “orientation”) desire children.

The fix for this is obvious. Stop masturbating and have sex—with a spouse, because if anybody has rights, it’s children, who need both mater and pater.

Anyway, deaf ears and all that. Less obvious is that since every right entails a responsibility or duty, that masturbators have a “right” to have children given to them, since they cannot reproduce, somebody has a duty to provide those children. And you thought slavery ended at the Civil War.

Item HBO’s Explicit ‘Euphoria’ Courts Controversy: How Much Teen Sex and Drugs Is Too Much?

Thirty penises in one episode? Zendaya’s new series, filled with graphic nudity, violence and drug use among young people, is so extreme that one star quit mid-shoot, but the network hopes that authenticity will help the show break through: “It’s not sensational to be sensational.”…

“There are going to be parents who are going to be totally f[—–]g freaked out,” says Euphoria creator Sam Levinson

One guesses this will not be a Christian drama, then
