Plastics

Honestly, plastics seem down-right satanic. I’ve already spent time addressing the environmental impact, particularly as it relates to human health, i.e., endocrine health, here. If you are not yet acquainted with the growing body of research showing plastic’s role in undermining the hormone balance in humans and animals worldwide, I strongly recommend you follow that link. Unfortunately, many topics in environmentalism have been ridiculously sensationalized and leveraged for pure politics, and this has had the unfortunate effect of alienating many reasonable people from giving genuine environmental concerns the serious consideration they deserve. Plastics are truly one the environmental concerns of great importance.

Besides the physical poison of plastics in the environment and food-supply, plastics have played a significant role in our moral degradation as well. Plastics have done this by introducing us to “throw-away” culture. Their relative affordability and their ability to be easily shaped into any form has made them extremely popular among manufactured products and packaging. However they are almost never as strong or durable as the old materials — generally wood, glass, paper, and metal — which they replaced. You can hardly buy anything today, be it a tool, appliance, container, or a toy for your kids, which will not soon break under reasonable use because it is just cheap plastic shit. Decades of living under this paradigm has brought us to the point where few consumer goods are even considered for repair once they have broken. Nope — just throw them away and buy a replacement!

People hardly know how to craft things and hardly know how to fix things anymore, and a lot of this is truly thanks to plastic. Plastic is just so cheap and versatile, and serves (just barely) well enough to make it to the end of the average pleb’s short time-horizon.

Despite the grim realities of plastic, I’m actually somewhat optimistic that successful war could be waged against it even without a full-blown Kaczynski-ite revolution. It would seem that even the elites could be made to see their own interests — especially their health interests — in pushing for a global ban on plastics. Sure, the plastics industry would fight such a move, but other large industries — wood, metal, etc. — would see a big opportunity and would likely grasp at it. Besides, there is already some momentum from more and more municipalities banning straws and plastic bags; let’s strike the metal while it’s hot and demand a global ban on all of this plastic shit!

It is totally possible to make this the #1 mainstream environmental agenda item. (Usurping the spot currently, and most unfortunately, held by the ridiculous hoax of man-made global warming.) I’m not saying it would be easy, I’m just saying it can be done. Harder, less promising agenda items have succeeded.

Somebody talks to you about global warming — shift the conversation to the plastic ban.

Somebody talks to you about the ozone layer — shift the conversation to the plastic ban.

Somebody talks to you about plastic straw and plastic bag bans — shift the conversation to the GLOBAL ban on ALL plastics!

Whatever the environmental discussion, never agree to anything less than a GLOBAL ban on ALL plastic. Any interlocutor of yours that won’t go for it is obviously not sincere in their environmentalism and is certainly not even close to being the type who would care to have a de-modernized world. Seriously. We haven’t even had plastics for more than about half a century. Getting rid of them is not asking for much.

The Pill

gettyimages-179983952

The birth control pill is also an environmental pollutant which poses a danger to good endocrine health — so much so that some countries have now begun to try filtering it out of the public water supply. Obviously though, what makes this invention particularly evil is its massive impact on morality.

So much of the terrible degeneracy that defines our time would be impossible without this invention. From Wikipedia:

“The pill was approved by the FDA in the early 1960s; its use spread rapidly in the late part of that decade, generating an enormous social impact. Time magazine placed the pill on its cover in April, 1967. In the first place, it was more effective than most previous reversible methods of birth control, giving women unprecedented control over their fertility. Its use was separate from intercourse, requiring no special preparations at the time of sexual activity that might interfere with spontaneity or sensation, and the choice to take the pill was a private one. This combination of factors served to make the pill immensely popular within a few years of its introduction. Claudia Goldin, among others, argue that this new contraceptive technology was a key player in forming women’s modern economic role, in that it prolonged the age at which women first married allowing them to invest in education and other forms of human capital as well as generally become more career-oriented. Soon after the birth control pill was legalized, there was a sharp increase in college attendance and graduation rates for women. From an economic point of view, the birth control pill reduced the cost of staying in school. The ability to control fertility without sacrificing sexual relationships allowed women to make long term educational and career plans.

“Because the pill was so effective, and soon so widespread, it also heightened the debate about the moral and health consequences of pre-marital sex and promiscuity. Never before had sexual activity been so divorced from reproduction. For a couple using the pill, intercourse became purely an expression of love, or a means of physical pleasure, or both; but it was no longer a means of reproduction. While this was true of previous contraceptives, their relatively high failure rates and their less widespread use failed to emphasize this distinction as clearly as did the pill. The spread of oral contraceptive use thus led many religious figures and institutions to debate the proper role of sexuality and its relationship to procreation. The Roman Catholic Church in particular, after studying the phenomenon of oral contraceptives, re-emphasized the stated teaching on birth control in the 1968 papal encyclical Humanae vitae. The encyclical reiterated the established Catholic teaching that artificial contraception distorts the nature and purpose of sex.”

Women slutting around, women choosing career instead of marriage and family life, a society immersed in ever worsening debauchery — all of this comes as the inevitable fruit of this destructive invention. It is absolutely impossible to maintain any kind of culture, any kind of civilization, in the absence of natural sexual consequence. Pregnancy and child-rearing is a tremendous responsibility, yes, but it is also one of the greatest disciplinary rigors of the natural order. It bestows upon the parents a type of maturity which is gotten from no other source. It stabilizes relationships — not only between the expecting parents, but between those parents and the society around them. Without this divinely instituted discipline nothing in society can hold up very long and the predictable end is to fall into a state of being that is beneath even the dignity of pre-humans.

I want to reiterate here my 7th Axiom:

Most of our problems today in the social and political sphere, though they appear to the casual observer to be the result of an ideological agenda, are in fact only the misdirected and confused reactions to industrialization. It may be true that sinister people are leveraging the average person’s struggle to come to terms with industrial life against them, but the thing being leveraged pre-exists the leverager and supersedes in importance. Feminism serves as a great example: If you attempt to maintain the industrialized system while hunting down those who leverage feminism as a political tool, you will constantly be overwhelmed with both work and failure. On the other hand, if the industrialized system is defeated, feminism automatically dies with it.

Computers, Cellphones, Etc.

Tech006

Where to even start? Well, perhaps I don’t even need to say anything. If you’re visiting this website right now, you most likely know what I think of these things — this is, after all, the computer-hating-est, cell-phone-hating-est website in the world. Whatever points could be raised against these evil machines have already been raised here more than once.

Sometimes I still hear people insist that computers and the internet and cellphones have been a net-good. “What about Wikipedia?!”

No, not even Wikipedia can justify the digital age — far, far from it, in fact. Wikipedia is, I agree, the greatest single digital-age achievement as far as benefits to the average consumer go, but it is still just a shitty McDonald’s burger in the whole scheme of genuine human intelligence. Overall, Wikipedia just gives a pretense of knowledge and that’s about it. Genuinely inquisitive people use Wikipedia only as a starting point: they go for the footnotes and take their research into their own hands. That’s just a small portion of the population, though — and they were definitely going after source materials long before Wikipedia came along. The pretense of knowledge is almost always worse than the acknowledged lack of it.

Thus, there is not a single website out there which can justify the creation of computers and the internet. No long-as-you-please list of “good” websites could possibly outweigh all the severe damage these things have inflicted and continue to inflict upon humanity: the enervation of the human intellect through growing dependence on “smart”-gadgets, the harm done to the eyes, to the posture, to the endocrine system, to the stream of very unwholesome images that are now distributed to a degree never before possible with pre-internet communications media. Computers, internet, and cellphones have been robbing children of the attention from their parents that is rightfully theirs. Children aren’t the only ones thus robbed — spouses, parents, siblings, friends, God. People veg out on these devices and rob themselves of the irreplaceable time they have to make something worthy out of their life.

Somewhere in the universe of real possibilities is a hypothetical, alternative you — he or she is somebody who actually took the time to dig deep for the treasure of their potential being. They would hate to be you, pissing away all that time “connected” and “busy” in front of a screen! They would feel a mixture of pity and disgust upon observing you. It has been said that Hell is meeting the man you could have been.

Paradoxically, the computer age, while sapping people of time for real self-actualization, has brought about an incredible inflation in the average person’s vanity. There is a whole genre of extremely popular websites that do nothing other than promote the most vapid and superficial aspects of people. And then, there’s porn. Not only the pornography, but the whole pornification of society, a degradation which owes nearly everything to TV, computers, and cell phones. Especially in the last year or two this degradation has reached levels awful enough even to scandalize ancient Sodom and Gomorrah.

The dead horse is not finished being kicked yet: just wait till all the 5G infrastructure is in place, pumping out even more un-natural radiation than ever before. Yeah, yeah, I know, some talking bar-code on the internet told you 5G is safe. Well, just like everything thing else ever invented — it’s always “safe” until two or three decades later when they “discover” it wasn’t safe. Either we can decide that what God gave us is sufficient for a good life, or we can keep on inventing “safe” stuff and wonder why so many kids are autistic, so many humans and animals are losing their sanity (or perishing in mass die-offs).

Well, at least the machines get to enjoy their health!

In closing, I want to make one last mention of ba’al pe’or, the demon credited with the proliferation of inventions, sloth, and money-making gimmicks. Some people are going to be very reluctant to take this tech-demon stuff seriously. Don’t scoff at it. It’s been a long time since the general public took evil seriously. By “evil” I don’t mean the mere opposite of justice and virtue, I mean spiritual evil, I mean spiritual rebellion against God. Evil’s source has personhood.

My prediction is that in the very near future, the acknowledgment of the realness of satan and demons and spiritual evil will once again be mainstream.

Most people who have even a quarter-ounce of belief in physiognomy have long observed that Mark Zuckerberg exudes an air of distinct unwholesomeness to say the least. In fact, quite a few people have no difficulty describing him as non-humanlike and morbid, even devlish or alien. Similar remarks abound regarding Tim “Rim” Cook, the CEO of Apple, who looks like a butch lesbian and has blasphemously stated that “being gay is God’s greatest gift to him”.

Check out Richard DeVaul, one of the top inventors at Google:

105541085-1540942055395devaul.530x298

Again, another very unwholesome physiognomy. Again, another gender-bender. Richard, just like Cook, looks like a bull-dike. He’s always sporting satanic-looking necklace charms, as well. And the name: Richard DeVaul <–> Dick Devil. Is this guy in baphomet’s legions or not?

A few days ago, Anthony Levandowski, of the big brains behind Uber, has announced he is establishing a church dedicated to the worship, not of God, but of Artificial Intelligence.

There is only one sensible thing to do:

About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose. The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!” The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house. At that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his household were baptized. The jailer brought them into his house and set a meal before them; he was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God—he and his whole household. (Acts 16)
