Methods That Police Use on the Mentally Ill Are Madness

Via Carpe Diem blog at AEI:
Why do so many American cops believe that shooting a schizophrenic man dead for failing to drop a screwdriver is an acceptable outcome? In the disturbing and graphic video below, watch Dallas police officers use excessive deadly force to shoot and kill Jason Harrison, a black man with schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder, who was holding a small screwdriver. His mother has called the police for assistance getting her son Jason to the hospital because he was off his meds. Maybe they could have used a stun gun or pepper spray?

Boyhood is not a Pathololgy

The key to this wonderful ode to boyhood is action.   I believe this is a core attribute of maleness - young or old.

Recently I read this article "Is the ‘Female Way of Learning’ Destroying Boyhood?" in which she identifies 1990 when feminist Carol Gilligan identified boys as defective girls who needed to be changed - that the beginning of the end for boys was neigh.

For millions of years, males have been perfecting the art of “maleness,” and this maleness was considered throughout historical time to be extremely valuable to the functioning and maintenance of society (Stolzer, 2005). What are we to do now that, for the first time in the history of humankind, we have defined these ancient and uniquely male traits as pathological? The answer is that we have constructed a myriad of disorders (i.e., behavioral disorders, learning disabilities, and so on) that are currently rampant in the education system and in many instances require that male children use pharmaceutical drugs in order to alter their behavioral patterns so that they will conform to the scripts set forth by their female constituents (Stolzer, 2005). Ethical Human Psychology and Psychiatry, Volume 10, Number 2, 2008
Taking that incidence to its conclusion is feminism - including this (supposed) story that also popped up in Feb - a feminist bragging how happy she was that she had aborted her boy fetus.
Last week social media jumped on the story of a woman who supposedly decided to have a late-term abortion specifically because she found out she was having a boy. Based on a near-anonymous comment posted on an Internet forum, the story is highly questionable at best. Nevertheless, both pro- and anti-abortion advocates pounced on the missive.
If true - this is proof that we are - literally - creating another gendercide.

It another article this mother notes:
True to their own biological nature the boys talked a bit less, but hugged twice as much. The simple reality of gender (one that we often tend to ignore) is that what boys don’t express verbally they express physically, emotions being at the top of the list.
Women can have a three hour in-depth conversation about an issue that would inspire a man to sit, listen, absorb and respond with a hug and a “I’m sorry.” Depending on the situation it can be enough to drive a woman nuts. We dig words. Quite often, a man’s words are in his deeds. 
It’s a biological communication gap that contemporary feminism, with its disregard for biological gender cues, tends to ignore far too often at the peril of both boys and girls.
Again - it is actions that are important - not words.

Therapist Tom Golden has made a point of studying the grief process of men - and written about it in "The Way Men Heal" and "Swallowed by a Snake"

Freedom of Speech controversy erupts on a U.S campus

Last week I heard about this incident of a male student (Jerimiah True) being ejected from a University Humanities course by his Prof on account of his disruptive behavior over a debate about Rape/Sexual Assault in the U.S.

Here is image of student, Mr. True.  

And his Prof. Pancho Savery - at Reed University in Oregon.

True now says that despite Savery's strong support of Free Speech - he did not believe it what he debated but how he debated.

Children of Feminist Icons

I still recall reading about the shocking childhood of Rebecca Walker - who's mother Alice was a  prominent feminists icon & writer.

It would appear that this trend of child neglect/emotional abuse appears to be a recurring theme for Feminists and I point to AVFM contributor/commentator - Janet Bloomfield's article on the topic here.

A UK contemporary of US Abortion Movement founder Margaret Sangster was Marie Stopes. While not a strident advocate of abortions she was a strong supporter of birth control methods - and most controversially, Eugenics.  Her first marriage ended badly but by 1917 she had a son Harry - with second* husband Humphrey Roe in 1924.  Humphry Roe was a well known WW1 Flying Ace and Industrialist of A.V. Roe Aircraft - who were a primary supplier of aircraft to the UK Government in WW1.  Marie Stopes was also known to have a "strong personality" -which lead to the breaking of both husbands.  Her son - Harry - seems to have suffered continuously as a child from her feminist theories and general eccentricities.

This sad treatment continued even after Harry married Mary Eyre Wallis - daughter of noted engineer Barnes Wallis.  Marie did not favour this choice of bride as she feared that it introduced a genetic flaw of "nearsightedness" into their family line that would effect her grandchildren - and so she removed Harry from her will before her death in 1935.

Harry became an well-known advocate for the British Humanist Movement and indeed was still its Vice-President when he died in May 2014.

* Stope's first husband was rather surprisingly a Canadian Geneticist - Reginald Gates.

Ex-Premier Alison Redford reflects on her resignation 1 year ago

One year ago on March 19, 2014 - Alison Redford announced her resignation as Premier of Alberta - launching a leadership contest that will soon lead to a Provincial Election under new PC Alberta leader, Jim Prentice.

She gave an extensive interview to the Globe & Mail yesterday.

It seems that after 1 year self-reflections were accurate.  Although she did not say her gender was the reason for her people disliking her, she admitted to being "polarizing" and fact she had very little support at the start contributed to her failure.  Gender was not a factor except she felt that there was a double standard in her being a mother when it came to having her daughter accompany her on various trips around the province.

There has not (yet) been the critical feminist chorus as there was when former-Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard was ousted.

International Parental Abductions

I recently read about this case that the CBC TV Investigative Team "Go Public" reported upon.

RCMP removed mom from plane, then let her go; Craig Johnstone blames them for loss of his child

Craig Johnstone distraught over police handling of alleged parental abduction

Here are some hilights from RCMP Child Abductions Study:
  • In 2005, there were 349 Canadian parental abduction incidents reported to Canadian police agencies; 157 of the parents had a custody order and 192 did not. Parents without a custody order abducted most often (Dalley, Reference Report 2005).
  • In 2014, there were 122 Parental Abductions. (Fast Facts 2014)

Catholic Deconstruction of Feminism

I can across this interview with Dawn Eden after reading an article she wrote in April 2008 entitled:

Eve of Deconstruction: Feminism and John Paul II by Dawn Eden.  

I encourage everyone to read it.

Here are some interviews with Dawn Eden about her two books, Thrill of the Chaste and My Peace I give You.

Theory of Cultural Collapse

Recently I read this post on the Return of Kings blog - The Theory of Cultural Collapse.

Bang on!

Most Western nations are looking at such a catastrophe and there appears to only be minor concern about it - we are facing a blue pill vs red pill moment if you will.

But - what can we do about it?

Here is the overview.

What Is A Cultural Collapse?

Cultural collapse is the decline, decay, or disappearance of a native population’s rituals, habits, interpersonal communication, relationships, art, and language. It coincides with a relative decline of population compared to outside groups. National identity and group identification will be lost while revisionist history will be applied to demonize or find fault with the native population. Cultural collapse is not to be confused with economic or state collapse. A nation that suffers from a cultural collapse can still be economically productive and have a working government.
First I will share a brief summary of the cultural collapse progression before explaining them in more detail. Then I will discuss where I see many countries along its path.

The Cultural Collapse Progression

1. Removal of religious narrative from people’s lives, replaced by a treadmill of scientific and technological “progress.”
2. Elimination of traditional sex roles through feminism, gender equality, political correctness, cultural Marxism, and socialism.
3. Delay or abstainment of family formation by women to pursue careerist lifestyles while men wait in confused limbo.
4. Decreasing birth rate among native population.
5. Government enactment of open immigration policies to prevent economic collapse.
6. Immigrant refusal to fully acclimate, forcing host culture to adopt external rituals and beliefs while being out-reproduced.
7. Natives becoming marginalized in their own country.
