One thing I don’t get about feminist is the constant need to make things focused around sexuality. It isn’t a knock on women’s sexuality. It is clear, has been clear, and always will be clear that women’s sexuality basically controls the world. But there this fervent need to make it such a big thing, but there is no discussion on philosophy, on morality, on real discussions about these things. Instead, it turns into a series of bromides, commands, and pseudo-arguments.

I saw someone complain about Fox News “rolling” their eyes at Beyonce’s Feminist routine at the VMAs and how they tore it down because of the sexuality in the show. I don’t often defend Fox News or any media outlet, but I will ask when will the arguments turn from complaining about sexuality to philosophy? When will you actually discuss the moral code and the philosophy behind your movement?

Why is it that it’s Beyonce and not one of the female CEOs that is the heroine of the movement? Why isn’t it a woman philosopher who changed philosophy?

They complain about there’re not enough women CEOs and what not, but are you out there going, “Hey, rise to the top on your own effort girls and build it”…No. You’re whining. You’re not focusing on foundations. You’re focusing on the wrong things.

Even if the current feminist movement wasn’t just a botched egalitarian movement that has gone off the rails and had a philosophy that promoted something other than sex and the right for government subsidized contraception…it would still not bring about equality in any real sense because equality doesn’t exist..not in the way they want it. People can be equal in having their individual rights protected, which means the right to your life, your liberty, your property, and your happiness, But equality in effort, money, outcomes, intelligence, ambition, ability, etc. doesn’t exist.

When and where individual rights are stepped on, that is where you should be outraged, but so should everyone. But the rest of it are concerns for lesser minds who never dig deep enough to discover the philosophy.

Christians have become the new Hare Krishnas. Stepping out to recruit and evangelize to annoy me no matter where I am shouting and spewing their mantras of subservience and guilt-ridden altruism.

I mean, I am glad they’ve somewhat gotten over their inquisitions and mass torture and slaughter and that Islam keeps almost a monopoly on that, but the recruiting is annoying. I am not joining your cult. Stop it.

Italian special force soldier after 72 hour battle in Afghanistan

School for black civil rights activists. Young girl being trained to not react to smoke blown in her face, 1960

Disability activists abandon their wheelchairs and mobility devices and crawl up the 83 stone steps of the U.S. Capitol Building demanding the passage of the American with Disability Act, March 12, 1990.

A south Korean man cries as his brother is on a train back to North Korea. Separated by the war, they have not seen the other since 1950. They were allowed to see each other for three days, but one will go back spending life in luxury, and the other in hard labour

 The Mocambo night club in East Hollywood, a white’s only club, was the most popular dance spot around but would not book Ella because she was black. Marilyn, who adored Ella Fitzgerald and her music, called the manager and demanded that they book Ella immediately

Portrait of Istvan Reiner, taken shortly before he was killed in Auschwitz

Werfel, a 6 year old orphan from Austria has just been given his first pair of new shoes by the American Red Cross,1946.

The last Jew of Vinnitsa

Susan B. Anthony in 1872 getting beaten and arrested for trying to vote when it was illegal for women to do so.

Until the mid-60s, the Aborigines came under the Flora And Fauna Act, which classified them as animals, not human beings. This also meant that killing an Aborigine meant you weren’t killing a human being, but an animal.

More proof that Paul Ryan is a despicable human being.

Objectivisim at its finest. When the cause he defunded becomes a pop culture fad, why let’s get our photo op in! 

I don’t like Paul Ryan, but I think this is actually pretty cool.
"Funding" that he cut is money that was forcefully taken from people to pay for this research. Taxes are theft and immoral no matter what they are being used to pay for
This ice bucket challenge shows us that we don’t need to force people to pay for things, they are more than happy to donate on their own free will.
I don’t know if Ryan donated any money or not but this post conveniently left that part out.


"Objectivism at its finest" somehow includes the objectivist getting a photo op?People who’ve never seen a copy of the fountainhead whining about those big bad objectivist who don’t want you to steal from them.

If there was a post that was proof enough why people don’t get the context of Rand or her philosophy, it’s this post. Government funding requires coercion. Coercion is immoral. Defunding research means getting government out of spheres it doesn’t belong. The ALSIceBucketChallenge is proof enough that it does not require government to create money for research. It shows that awareness creates money for research which can be done by the researchers or anyone who takes up the cause.An objectivist sees this as how it should be. Rather than money being forced out of the pockets to pay for whatever the program may be, individuals can and will bring awareness and passion to help fund what they believe needs to be funded without government. Objectivism is not anti-charity (as the ARI is ran on donations). It is anti-duty.

First class of the day…Logic. Something of use! Second class…American History. Third class? Astronomy (with an attached Lab) and the final class?! Intro to Computers because I haven’t been using a computer since I was 7.

So begins the first semester of my final year at tech college yaaaaay

My pastor preached a great message today. In response to people calling on him to say homosexuality, premarital sex, etc, are not sins anymore he said this:

"God didn’t give me the authority to say that the words in His Bible are lies."

BAM. Love this guy.

I mean, it’s the Bible so it’s one massive lie built on the premise of a life developed subjectively with a morality as baseless as the existence of God, yet as accepted widely as the next subjectivist philosophies that destroy reason.

So I mean, if we’re discussing subjectively that the Bible is true, then sure, because objectively it isn’t. Objectively, if you believe in the existence of sin, you believe that the man, by nature, is evil, and that man qua man had no chance at ever being good.
