Judge them by their deeds — not their words!

The so-called “Critical Theory” was invented by Max Horkheimer in the early days of the Frankfurt School and modified by Juergen Habermas as the central ideology of Neo-Marxism in Germany in the 1970s. Its main philosophical opponent was Karl Raimund Popper’s “Critical Rationalism”. Popper, an Austrian Jew who taught at the London School of Economics, is the author of two pivotal works: “The Open Society and its Enemies” and “Conjectures and Refutations”.

Very much in a nutshell, one could say that what Popper envisaged as an open society is one that is based on democracy and the uninhibited exchange of information and opinions, on free press, and free and open debate – much like the founding fathers of the American Republic and authors of the US Constitution. In “Conjectures and Refutations” Popper debates how we should establish truth and determine what is a fact and what isn’t. He postulates that theories and assertions that do not meet the minimum requirement of being falsifiable, should be considered mere opinions.

Individualism on the Stakes

Individualism is founded on the principle that the individual human constitutes a higher value than the collective. The most plausible argument for this principle is that all collectives consist of individuals.

Collectivists maintain that the collective constitutes a superior value and a greater good. Indeed, the individual cannot exist if not as part of some collective. The family, the clan, the village, the nation. Inversely, one could argue that collectives cannot exist without individuals.

Collectivists promise us the perfect society with all of mankind as the governed collective and they brush off the argument that they are destroying millions of individuals and make more millions miserable in their effort to establish the perfect collective.

The Marseillaise — An Old Anthem in a New Light

By now, you will have heard about the riots in France. As I write these lines, violent and chaotic conditions still prevail in almost all major French cities. According to my AI friend, approximately 1,300 protesters and 270 policemen have been injured or killed thus far plus an unknown number of civilian bystanders. Many cars burned.

These riots were sparked by the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old Algerian immigrant named Nahel Merzouk in Nanterre. Allegedly, Nahel was performing weird antics with a yellow car in front of a school building. Allegedly, the officer feared Nahel might hurt somebody and tried to stop him. When Nahel would not stop, the officer shot him.

How to fight woke with broke

ESG and the letter gender movement are slowly but surely destroying America’s economy. One wonders though, why long-existing solidly capitalist companies like Anheuser Busch or Target are turning shareholder capitalism into stakeholder capitalism, as described by Klaus Schwab, the prophet of climate change at the World Economic Forum, in his books “COVID 19 – The Great Reset” and “The 4th Industrial Revolution”.

Schwab ordains that, to save the world from climate change, capitalism must no longer be permitted to simply generate profits for its shareholders but must be mandated to produce and invest mainly in consideration of social and environmental, i.e., ideological concerns.

“Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue lasts only a moment.” (Proverbs, 12:19)

For years, I believed that Mr. Trump had been hounded by the Left for no justifiable reason. I believed that left-wing ideologues weaponized the CIA, the FBI, and the Department of Justice, including the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) Court system in order to prevent Mr. Trump from becoming President and, when he became President anyway, to prevent him from governing effectively. For believing this, I was called a right-wing fanatic, a NAZI, a white supremacist, a racist, and a political nut by the cool-aid drinkers of the Marxist globalist left.

Over the past three years, facts emerged one by one that showed that the Mueller investigation was a fraud from its inception. No there there. And Mr. Mueller knew it. Two impeachments, one paradoxically when Trump was already out of office. And nothing. No evidence. No impeachable offences.

“Green” — what’s in a word.

People who call themselves “green” typically demand drastic measures to reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, which, they claim, are caused by humans. They see themselves as the friends and defenders of the vegetal world against reckless CO2 contaminators.

Earth’s atmosphere contains approximately 78.08% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, 0.93% argon, 0.04% carbon dioxide – yes, only about 400 parts per million – and traces of hydrogen, helium, and other so-called “noble” gases.

Toxic Femininity

The women’s liberation movement has gradually morphed into a man-bashing movement. It has been taken over by lesbians and the transgender folks who hate men. The buzzword is “toxic masculinity”.

Make no mistake. This does not just mean that some men may be excessively aggressive or violent or that masculinity can occasionally turn into annoying or even dangerous aggressiveness. It means that men as a group are inherently more aggressive and more violent than women and therefore a danger to civil society and world peace.

Women, when given sufficient power, can be just as brutal, violent, destructive, and aggressive as men. In other words: Femininity can be just as toxic as masculinity.

Land of the Free and Home of the Brave?

Seems to me we are losing either way. If we do not revolt against this ruinous regime we lose our republic and our democracy and it we do revolt, we also lose our republic and our democracy. So, is there any way out of this conundrum? We wait patiently? We do nothing because if we did anything we might end up in prison? We hope the system can still cure itself?

I am beginning to wonder if there is a “too far” for the free and brave.

The Solutrean Hypothesis

Until recently, the common theory about how North America was populated was that the first humans migrated to Alaska from North East Asia and then moved on into the plains and to the East. The theory also asserted that the Clovis culture was the Neolithic culture of these early immigrants and that the American Indians are offspring of the Clovis people and the “native” population of North America.

However, the “Bering Strait” theory, as some call it, is unable to explain certain facts.

And perhaps therefore, it recently (2012) got competition: the Solutrean hypothesis.

Ad Hominem vs. Ad Rem (Hairdo or Country)

Politics, I said, is a pig-wrestling event and if you wrestle with pigs you may get dirty. And what is more important – that a president accomplishes the right things for his country or that he speaks in mild-mannered and polished ways while inflicting disaster upon his country – like Mr. Obama, for example?

I reminded him to consider how Trump was treated by his political opponents. Two impeachment attempts, the freely invented Russian Collusion hoax, investigation after investigation, false accusation after false accusation. The entire deep-state government was weaponized against him, never mind the Constitution or the rule of law.

Falsehood after falsehood. And then you condemn the man if he uses a cussword? Seems to me like accusing a rabbit of running against the one-way street while trying to escape a wolfpack.
