The Few get fewer, heaven is other people and the stupid beliefs we grew up with
The privileged woman with a guilty conscience abandoning her inheritance to live more egalitarian on a commune wouldn't be too different from a noblewoman spurring her family's wealth and going into a nunnery in 1350 Europe, no?
The cultural phenomena of the single female is very real. I've read that the sudden intensification of woke ideology in educational systems is mainly because of the dominance of single females among teachers and administrators. Same with HR departments. Intriguing that certain positions are increasingly occupied by single or childless females.
Good stuff Ed. I clicked on the link to that Hamza Taouzzale and hahaha oh man. Everything is going to be like this for the rest of our lives. And that sort of thing is going to get worse and worse as you get older and older.
There's nothing stopping *you* from writing a hugely depressing Caldwellian history of Britain since 1945, you know!
Poland sounds awesome but from what I understand the foundation is being built for it to be transformed in 20 years to what Ireland is like now. As it gets wealthier and more powerful it will be very hard for the Great Satan to refrain from annexing it culturally.
On the one hand, the modern Western world has gone totally kookydoodles. On the other hand, we still have air conditioning, antibiotics, and anesthesia, and I expect to die of old age before we reach the point of shooting the generators because they won't work even when you scream at them.
One of the causes of happiness is expectations that correlate with reasonably likely outcomes!
“LGBT identity has become divorced from sexual behavior or erotic feeling, allowing anyone to belong on the basis of little more than a generalized dissatisfaction with contemporary sexual mores.”
There’s something to this, but it’s also easy to risk overstating it. In Seth Stephens-Davidowitz’s “Everybody Lies” from several years ago he found that a surprisingly high fraction of women watched lesbian porn. This behavior pattern can hardly be said to be divorced from erotic feeling, even if many of these women never go beyond pornography.
I miss Denis Healey.
I’m a little surprised you didn’t mention the great victory for the wrong side of history here in the US this glorious Summer of 2022.
As the protest signs held up by the lesbian Anglican priestesses say, “We Won’t Go Backwards!” Obviously the first thing that came to mind was Mr West smirking somewhere…
No, we cannot go back to the Garden. But maybe ‘evolving’ to the point of mothers eradicating their offspring was always the path to hell.
Possible typo: didn’t you mean to write ‘luxury beliefs’ instead of ‘luxury goods’ for the Rob Henderson part?
