I was never "normal" I saw the earth day protests in 1970 as a bullshit excuse to skip school, and impress the babes. I thought the earth is not a risk, the only thing humans can wipe out is them selves. Live on earth has survived billions of years and many catastrophic events.

I went to school, worked, raised a family. I knew that the leftist bullcrap was bullcrap, but was polite.

The global warming craze was what really fired up my bullshit meter. The correlation between sunspots and global temps has been known a long time, I became aware of it in the early 1990’s. With Svensmark’s cosmic rays hypotheses, a mechanism connected solar activity to cloud formation and cooling. CO2 dindu nuffin. And yet the AGW lies permeated the matrix. It took me years, but enlightenment has to reverse years of propaganda. Getting laid off in 2010 gave me more time to research. Truth one little piece at a time. I am not there yet, but I am not a catatonic NPC anymore.

In the elementary school I attended as a little boy of seven or eight the subject of France was presented to us and mention was made of a few of their notables. Joan of Arc and a little of her story was given to us.

I thought it interesting that my family name was very similar to hers and perhaps for that reason imagined that she was a distant relative. I read the little things that were available about her in our school library.

It must have been a Saturday afternoon during this period of childhood that I saw TV documentary about her. During the broadcast, a man, another student of her life, made this statement: "contemporaneous reports by several people very close to her state that: she would cup her ears with her hands in order to catch and tune the sound of the ringing church bells while she prayed."

The days came and went and I grew from boy to man and moved on with the business of living.

A time came for me to go on unpaid Sabbatical in order to adjust my frame of mind for bigger and better things. During this time I read some more and listened to sounds, sermons, and music in an attempt to communicate with "higher love".

The prognosticator of one of the sermons I dove into stated that he thought it would be possible to recreate the personal experience Joan of Arc had in the context of prayer and bell tones. And I read some more.

When the next chasm needed to be surmounted, I went back to the well and read more on Joan of Arc.

Being educated in America, and though I had read five or seven well respected books about her, including, *Joan of Arc in her own Words*, it was purely by accident that I came upon Mark Twain's favorite and self selected best work: *Joan of Arc, A Personal Recollection*.

The other day on Twitter I saw a young woman talk about the current disaster and how her brave four year old son gave his life defending her.

I have had Mark Twain’s book for seventeen years. I have read most of it. Just two chapters remain. It is time I man up and read them too.

Not quite sure what you started, but here goes:

I just today watched "Rabbit Hole". I give it 5 stars.

I think Israel intentionally intentionally allowed Hamas in, knowing it was the only way they could go to war with Islam. They are damned for eternity, and I guess I am also as I agree with what they did.

"A Canticle For Liebowitz" is the best book I've read.

Currently reading One Million Dead by Gironella, set during the Spanish Civil War.

I live on a Southwest mountain and feed birds, and am addicted to sunshine.

I have lived in southern Africa, specifically Botswana, and only followed you because your avatar’s Rhodesian T-shirt fascinated and terrified at the same time. I still think it is photoshopped

This past year I’ve discovered Bondarchuk’s War & Peace, directed in Soviet times. Free on YouTube. It has layers of glory and the decadence of doomed godless systems. Even the weird colors of Russian film stock contribute.

I don’t want to date anybody, I just obey orders, some from the wife. I truly hate socialism in all its forms but admit I benefit. Venceremos.

I was nine when I published the first article I wrote for my school magazine. My writing hasn't developed as I'd hoped it would since. Life intervenes. My mother burnt what I first wrote, as a grown man, at the bottom of her garden, so can't say I've had much encouragement. When I was nine, at boarding school in Norton, Rhodesia, I remember the mortar attack drills in the dead of night, requiring us to take cover under our beds, with the mattress wrapped around me to catch shrapnel. We never knew it was a drill till afterward. I'm surprised I had the presence to publish anything, really. Our school masters patrolled school fences upon dirt bikes, with Uzis, and because of their sacrifices, I still found time to read and write. I honour their memory, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, with my writing.

Book series recommendation: Jack Whyte’s Camulod Chronicles

It is Galt’s Gulch during the Late Roman Empire, with lots of fascinating battle tactics, iron work, and the quest to achieve safety and sovereignty as Rome withdraws from Britain and leaves the remaining colonists and colonised to fend for themselves. Very Ayn Rand.

I reviewed an article published in the The New Yorker "What's the Matter With Men?" I have little good to say about it and the elite class from which it dropped; they have forgotten human nature, human civilization and human history in their arrogant mission to create a new world. It won't end well. https://falsechoices.substack.com/p/men-and-women

I very recently published <a href=”https://www.amazon.com/Economics-Reimagined-Nature-Progress-Standards/dp/B0CKWNMWCV/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3LPA5783VOYZJ&keywords=economics+reimagined&qid=1698412689&sprefix=economics+reimagined%2Caps%2C81&sr=8-1”>Economics Reimagined: Nature, Progress and Living Standards</a>

This is a very different look at the economy, aimed at the general reader who need not ever have taken an economics course. It is an easy read, with almost no math, statistics, formulas, or models. It is entertaining and frequently funny.

At the same time, it is very original. It shows why the universally accepted scorecard of how the economy is doing, GDP, is not something we should even care much about. Instead, we should focus on living standards, i.e., people’s ability to get what they want, whatever that may be.

When you look at the economy through the lens of living standards, you see that many commonly held beliefs are wrong. You’ll see that capitalism, which is supposed to be good for the rich but not the poor, has built-in mechanisms that help the poor much more than the rich.

You’ll also see why those being taxed are not really the ones ultimately paying taxes. You’ll see why the cost of government, no matter who or what it taxes, is ultimately paid for in the form of lower living standards for the poor, not the rich.

This different way of understanding cause and effect in the economy provides a new perspective on inequality, how to deal with climate change, and many other controversial topics.

The link above is for Amazon, but it is available at many other outlets, and there is an excellent audiobook that so far is available everywhere except Amazon.

I’ve got a random ask for the community. Does anyone know where the e-right meme “the line must go up” comes from, or at least some articles that mention it? I am writing an article that references the meme, but I cannot remember any posts to link to.

Dating-

Same GF for four years now.

Reading/Media Reviews

Three Kingdoms: Series based off the "Romance of the Three Kingdoms." As the Han empire wains, the ambitious rise. Can the Han be restored to their former glory, or will the young upstarts from outside the Liu family rise to the occasion?

Mesmerism and the end of the Enlightenment in France: The author chronicles the rise of Mesmerism, otherwise known as animal magnetism, in pre-revolutionary France. We often think of the French Revolution as the rise of the rational, scientific approach to the world, however, a quasi-scientific theory was very popular with notable figures in the revolutions such as Barras and Lafayette. Many of the actual scientist, like Lavoisier, were conservative nobles, not rabble rousing failed sons of the middle classes. Definitely a different perspective worth revisiting in this time and age.

Is this the dating section? Since my wife is 15 years older than me, eventually I'll be needing a good female replacement who is considerably younger than me. She'll have a lot to live up to.

This is hopefully many years from now, but, since Kulak insisted, I'm here to prepare early. So: which of you mothers would like to volunteer your daughters for an arranged marriage?

Final note. If you think this is creepy, you are both brainwashed and lacking a sense of humor.
