Spanking and the Culture of Violence Has Worldwide Consequences

Spanking and the Culture of Violence Has Worldwide Consequences January 3, 2020

Sorry, but I’m a bit late getting off the bubble today and getting this up. But I have a good excuse, since late last night I’ve been watching in horror as it’s come out that our president, Donald J. Trump, ordered a rocket launch that killed someone prominent in another nation. The rocket launch hit a very public place, the main airport in Baghdad, killing top Iranian general Soleimani. The news today is full of stories about this aggressive action.

I cannot tell you how distressed this news makes me, and how much I hate the fact that it looks like another war is looming on our horizon. One created by what has to be the dumbest commander in chief of all time. It’s pretty clear that Trump was likely manipulated into this by his powerful friends in the oil and defense industries to drive up profits and prices. And as always the poorest in our nation will pay the biggest price.

Before this happened I’d been thinking hard again about spanking as Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife is promoting it in the sealed secretive roach nest she calls a chat room. Lori has been promoting beating small children yet again, even while we’re seeing what leadership obsessed with violence looks like.

Is there not a Bible verse about evil deeds done in secret eventually being exposed to the light?

Here’s Lori and her followers promotion of violence towards helpless children.

A tendency towards violence and aggression is formed early in life. Usually when parents and other authority figures in the life of a child are over harsh, teaching the child that might makes right, that the person able to hit the hardest wins and that protective aggression to fob off attacks is a good thing.

When you are taught this is it really that big of a leap to things like bullying others, attacking others without reason, or choosing to try and resolve difficult situations using brute force? I lay yesterday’s attack firmly at the feet of those that teach this very thing, that might always makes right, the Loris, the Pearls, and all who find joy in beating others.

For bonus Lori is now also featured and promoting a horrible conference called “Make Women Great Again” involving Stephan Molyneax and others promoting stripping rights away from all women. They are even sharing her teaching on “Debt Free Tattooless Virgins” she keeps harping on. Of course she’s in favor of this horrible thing.

This is the conference referenced here. Warning, you need a barf bag to read through this pile of mansplaining excreta.

I just cannot even today! Between the looming war, spanking and this conference its a good day to take a mental holiday. Perhaps I’m being too eager to leap from spanking to war, but as long as there are people out there promoting violence against children as normal we’ll keep seeing violence here, from bullying, to school shootings, through war. How we treat our children affects the entire world.
