Here’s an interesting article.

The upshot is that men are not getting with The Program, insisting on “masculine identity” when the very concept of human nature is outmoded in favor of the “clean slate.” To write upon, of course. What? Anything your power desires, is what.

The author is an NYT Op-Ed columnist. He’s also been senior editor at The Weekly Standard (a neocon propaganda mag). And he’s further government-approved as shown by appearances on Jim Lehrer. This is what the ruling class wants — blank slates for thee, writing implements for me.

At the core of a pagan culture is the worship of nature. And at the core of nature worship is something unnatural and inhuman, because we are made for God and nature cannot contain us. When we set ourselves to worship nature, we end up worshipping power. And when you worship power then the strong do as they will and the weak suffer what they must–which is why we are rapidly evolving into a police state with the Ruling Class against the rest of us.

Pre-Christian paganism was a virgin. It was fallen and could commit horrors (as St. Lawrence will tell you). But it was also searching for God. That’s why the last thing the pagans did was become Christian. But post-Christian paganism is a divorcee. It is turning away from the only one that can redeem it. And it will therefore certainly end in tyranny. What Churchill said of England is more true of the Church: “If we fall, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.”

  • I find it fascinating the amount of absolute contradictions the modern academic and intellectual must hold in their heads. On the one hand, we are told that human beings are blank slates with no inherent nature, to be formed as *someone* (usually a sociology major) sees fit, for their own good and the good of all, of course. At the same time, homosexuality is inherent and inborn, and are therefore fixed and unchangeable, and woe to anyone who suggests their nature may be changed.

      Butm Sir, you fporgwt that gays are the post Christian “chosen people of god” and are specially marked at the time of conception.

    And thus, hello Harry Potter.
