I’ve Got It!

I’ve solved our energy crisis! I’ve figured out a way to preserve the arctic wastelands and put the oil rigs where they’ll never disturb a single natural thing. The natives can even remain in their quaint villages:

FINALLY, A FRENCH HAMMER STRIKES

Not all of France is going quietly into the dark night of cowardice in the face of terrorism. Jean-Christophe Mounicq, "a French writer specializing in economics, world politics and the French political scene" has had enough of jihadist murderers and their cowering supporters in demographically suicidal Europe:

"The reaction of the European media and political class to the elimination of Sheikh Yassin — the master of hate and terrorism, and one who had called for the murder of Jews — pushed me over the edge. I can no longer tolerate descriptions of the monster responsible for hundreds of deaths and thousands of wounded as a 'spiritual leader,' a poor 'paralytic in a wheelchair.' I can no longer tolerate murderous, barbaric Islamist hatred."

Welcome aboard WW IV, Monsieur Mounicq! (For the rest of his article, go here. And thanks to Little Green Footballs for the link.)

LIFE, LIBERTY & THE PURSUIT OF COMFORT

Interested in just how dangerous it can be for a conservative on faculty in an American University? Mike Adams is in just such a position and, while he humorously describes the pressure now being put on him for “making a colleague uncomfortable,” being denied your right to free speech is serious stuff:

"When it first hit me that while in the office I could no longer talk about gay rights, feminism, religion, Darwinism, affirmative action, or any issue I discuss in my column, I was outraged. In fact, I got so mad that I raised my voice before storming out of my superior’s office. I never thought that the right of each university employee to feel comfortable at all times would ever actually be enforced against me here in the workplace (a.k.a., the public university)."

More Adams here.

SAY IT AIN’T SO, ERIN

Erin O’Connor is hinting strongly that her days in academia are numbered, which I hope doesn’t mean she will stop producing the best anti-thought-police blog on the Web. The core of her careful, reasoned and temperate approach is to raise ethical questions about how and what professors profess using real cases in the rapidly crumbling world of professional educators. With them, of course, crumbles the transmission of culture—including the language itself. In a nutshell, that means that, instead of civilization, we are transmitting anarchy to the next generations.

Will the imposition of maximum democracy—the idea behind diversicratic, multi-culturalist initiatives—lead to dictatorship, as thinkers wiser than we have warned throughout the ages? Time will tell, but the penalties for not adhering to the current line are becoming quite draconian and, well, frightening, another subject well covered at O’Connor’s blog.

And speaking of draconian solutions, my first suggestion is to raze the nation’s graduate education schools and shut down all secondary schools for a year while we try to reestablish education. An added bonus is that this solution will eliminate unemployment as parents desperate for babysitters will pay top dollar to secure them.

Napoleonic? Yes. Unreasonable? No—unless you think cultural suicide is a sane option.

Ars Derbica.

Derb has outdone himself. Seems Peggy Noonan wrote an idiotic column about how we live in a tolerant time where opinions are aired freely and dissent treated respectfully. I’m not sure when Peggy started smoking crack but not even Courtney Love is high enough to believe that. Aren’t people in Canada and most of Europe thrown in jail for dissenting from officially mandated Acceptable Thought? Refusing to celebrate homosexuality can get you big fines and a nice stretch in the hoosegow. “Hate speech” (trans: disagreeing with a Liberal) can get you expelled from college. In the North Carolina university system, being a conservative or merely being white gets you fired. Gee, wonder why every major company has a Re-Education, I mean, Diversity Training course? The Anointed have decided what thoughts, opinions, and people will be allowed and which must be exterminated.

“We have not, in fact, gone ‘beyond tolerance’ at all, we have merely invented new kinds of intolerance. We have not swept away caste-feudalism and replaced it with a shining meritocratic egalitarianism; we have just traded in one style of caste-feudalism for another style. This is not a society ‘in which people feel free to hold whatever private views on all human groups and behaviors.’ People are ashamed of their private beliefs and fearful to disclose them. They are baffled by the fact that sincere opinions held by their parents and grandparents, rooted in custom, good sense, scripture, and everyday observation, are now shouted down as ‘bigoted’ and ‘intolerant.’ What use are private beliefs anyway, if they are excluded from the public square by a suffocating conformity, imposed by an ever-vigilant Thought Police backed by armies of predatory lawyers? Under this relentless pressure, private beliefs fade from all but the bravest hearts, to be replaced with the state-approved formulas: diversity, inclusiveness, equality, compassion, respect.

I am reminded of Flannery O’Connor’s remark that “kindness leads to the gas chambers.” It takes a straight shot of liberal tolerance to see why.

Sowell Patrol.

More wisdom from the Sowell Man:

"The fraudulence of the left's concern about poverty is exposed by their utter lack of interest in ways of increasing the nation's wealth. Wealth is the only thing that can cure poverty. The reason there is less poverty today is not because the poor got a bigger slice of the pie but because the whole pie got a lot bigger -- no thanks to the left.”

“Being smart is what keeps some people from being intelligent.”

MORLOCKS 3, ELOI 0

But what about the children? Of the affluent, that is—some of who send their pampered bambinos off to $30-thousand-a-year prep schools armed only with their own sense of entitlement—when they come in contact with their opposites on the sidewalks of upscale neighborhoods.

A recent incident here in Brooklyn Heights might shed some light; an incident wherein three young teenagers on their lunch break from a tony prep school here got themselves mugged by three older teenagers. One of the thugs was caught later with some of the loot including a cell phone and an Abercrombie & Fitch credit card.

Apparently, a lot of parents, affluent or not, let their kids have cell phones and credit cards. Apparently, some of them have no problem getting them cards to A & F, most recently famous for the stink raised by their soft-core-porn catalogues aimed at teens and younger ages. (I’m assuming, though maybe I shouldn’t, that the parents know their kids have cells and credit cards.)

And, apparently, teen thugs have taken a cue from their older, bank-robbing brethren and now prey on the affluent in broad daylight on busy streets.

Beyond the crime, none of the details are news. American kids have been walking around with credit cards and cells for some time. What may be new is their ignorance of their own attractiveness to the thieving class, a vulnerability immeasurably heightened when one is walking and talking on the phone at the same time. New York City kids of all financial persuasions used to be savvier than this.

Hey, here’s a tip for Abercrombie & Fitch: Put bulls eyes on all your trendy threads and make it official—your customers are game.

Mad About Marriage.

You are quite right Bob. It is dumb for our convenience society to destroy marriage and then deny gays the opportunity to cavort amongst the ruins.

I am against gay marriage for the full litany of moral, social, and historical reasons. I can throw in a few economic and political ones too but that would take me into territory everyone and his life partner has covered before. Gay marriage merely enshrines the abolition of real marriage and the entire civilization founded upon it. Societies with gay marriage (Scandinavia for instance) have all but obliterated the idea of permanent human relationships. Once marriage is just a non-binding legal contract between people depending only upon the whim or convenience of one member of the conglomerate, society is over. Why? Commitment, that’s why. Love too, if you must know. Let me be very clear in saying that gay marriage does not cause all that trouble, it is the culmination of it. Societies that have so destroyed traditional marriage as to start mandating gay marriage (it has never been voted in) are no longer fully functioning societies. Political or economic units maybe, but not societies. By destroying marriage in the name of sexual convenience with No Fault Divorce and the like, we have also destroyed the idea of permanence in human relationships. We killed off devotion, commitment, and responsibility. We killed Love. Love isn’t a genital stimulation or even an all-consuming emotional high. That’s Lust, inky, thin, cloying Lust. Love is devotion; Love is respect; Love is regard; Love is responsible. Love is a permanent way of life, not a passing fancy. We, and the rest of the modern world, don’t have or want Love. We prefer the convenience of transient shack-ups and serial monogamy to the hard work of Love. Western civilization took a big risk in basing marriage on Love. The West bet the farm on the idea that people could and would live for more than themselves alone. The West thought men could be relied upon to do right by their women and children. The West, even more foolishly, thought that women would demand men, not libidinous boys. The West thought people would Love. The West was wrong. Look around you at the smoldering wreckage of liberation and explored sexuality. Love is more than this.

One more thing:

“When society decided--and we have decided, this fight is over--that society would no longer decide the legitimacy of sexual relations between particular men and women, weddings became basically symbolic rather than substantive, and have come for most couples the shortcut way to make the legal compact regarding property rights, inheritance and certain other regulatory benefits. But what weddings do not do any longer is give to a man and a woman society's permission to have sex and procreate.”

Erich Frommer (I think, some shrink named Erik anyways) once said that fewer than 10 percent of all people really matured into true adults. Everyone else remained mental and emotional children. In the past, people were forced into adulthood by society. Society expected people to grow up and shoulder the burdens of manhood. Today, the opposite is true. Society encourages permanent childhood, the adolescence of Dorian Gray. Modern society, with its Pill and it s consumerism and its self-esteem, actively campaigns against adulthood. Adulthood involves responsibility and the shouldering of burdens. An adult takes responsibility not only for himself but also for those whose lives he impacts. Adulthood ain’t skittles and beer. The modern Adultescent wants the sensual games of childhood, with all the consequences tucked away, with pills and scalpels, into the ever expanding apron of Nanny State.

In the War Against Terror . . .

Spain surrendered. Okay, so the terrorists wanted the Spanish to resisting terrorism. Spain refused. Terrorists bomb a commuter train, killing hundreds. The Spanish vote in an Anti-American Socialist government, effectively pulling out of the War on Terror. The terrorists get what they want. What happens the next time the Islamofascists want something, like sharia law or a good old-fashioned pogrom? A few more bombs? Obviously. The ETA has most certainly gotten the message.

DID THE PILL BRING US SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, TOO?

Rev. Donald Sensing believes so and makes a strong case at Opinion Journal this morning:

"Sex, childbearing and marriage now have no necessary connection to one another, because the biological connection between sex and childbearing is controllable. The fundamental basis for marriage has thus been technologically obviated. Pair that development with rampant, easy divorce without social stigma, and talk in 2004 of "saving marriage" is pretty specious. There's little there left to save. Men and women today who have successful, enduring marriages till death do them part do so in spite of society, not because of it.

"If society has abandoned regulating heterosexual conduct of men and women, what right does it have to regulate homosexual conduct, including the regulation of their legal and property relationship with one another to mirror exactly that of hetero, married couples?

"I believe that this state of affairs is contrary to the will of God. But traditionalists, especially Christian traditionalists (in whose ranks I include myself) need to get a clue about what has really been going on and face the fact that same-sex marriage, if it comes about, will not cause the degeneration of the institution of marriage; it is the result of it."

SANCTIFYING THE ABYSS

The “gay marriage debate” is heating up in Brooklyn, the most “controversial” statement thus far coming from Brooklyn Diocese Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio noting quite sensibly, it seems to me, that the state will not be able to stop at “marrying” homosexuals but will be forced in time to issue licenses to those benighted folk who wish to marry their pets. From a New York Times report of the bishop’s statements on an Albany radio program:

“It could be anything once you say marriage is something other than what it is… You want to reduce something to the absurd, which is basically rhetorical use of an image: Why can’t we have marriages between people and pets? I mean, pets really love their masters and why can’t we have a marriage so they could inherit the money?”

Unlike their Catholic brethren, Episcopal divines in Brooklyn turn up on both sides of the issue and, predictably, local politicians frame their responses according to the wishes of their constituents. Quoted in The Brooklyn Paper, one councilman, Bill DeBlasio of Park Slope, a neighborhood where it is impossible to find a knee that doesn’t jerk to tired old liberal tunes, found the bishop’s statements to be “inflammatory” and “divisive and unhelpful to the public debate.” But, then, gay activists and their fellow travelers find any statement of principle that doesn’t support their fundamental lack of principles to be divisive. Now that they have incited a debate, they don’t want anything to do with it.

I found Bishop DiMarzio’s statement to be good humored and mild. The reality is that “gay marriage” inevitably will lead to group marriage and, given homosexual proclivities, the sanctioning of marriage between men and boys. At that point, I imagine the “debate” will be somewhat more inflamed than it is now.

Youth Culture Must Die!

Here is a most righteous article about the tyranny of Youth Culture and its degrading effects on society. The most obvious example is sartorial:

“WHENEVER ANYONE under the age of 50 sees old newsreel film of Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak of 1941, he is almost certain to be brought up by the fact that nearly everyone in the male-dominated crowds . . . seems to be wearing a suit and a fedora or other serious adult hat. The people in those earlier baseball crowds, though watching a boyish game, nonetheless had a radically different conception of themselves than most Americans do now. . . . Even though they were watching an entertainment that took most of them back to their boyhoods, they thought of themselves as adults, no longer kids, but grown-ups, adults, men.”

Preach on. If I see one more grown man dressed like a toddler I’m going to pull a full frontal Lorena. The baggy pants (to give access to diapers), the grungy T-shirts (easy clean for messy eaters), and sneakers to go everywhere are the hallmarks of pre-school haberdashery. They are also what passes for “style” among adults, young and old alike. Donna Reed may have been a bit silly to clean her house in pearls and heels, but at least she had dignity.

The more insidious effect of youth culture is mental. The high-strung, ego fixated dramatics of high school society have become the accepted social mores of the rest of society. Centered around the relentless pursuit of the latest in every material thing and hypersensitive to any perceived slight, we are all Heathers now:

“Political correctness and so many of the political fashions of our day--from academic feminism to cultural studies to queer theory--could only be perpetrated on adolescent minds: minds, that is, that are trained to search out one thing and one thing only: Is my teacher, or this politician, or that public spokesman, saying something that is likely to be offensive to me or members of any other victim group? Only an adolescent would find it worthwhile to devote his or her attention chiefly to the hunting of offenses, the possibility of slights, real and imagined.

“Self-esteem, of which one currently hears so much, is at bottom another essentially adolescent notion. The great psychological sin of our day is to violate the self-esteem of adolescents of all ages. One might have thought that such self-esteem as any of us is likely to command would be in place by the age of 18. (And what is the point of having all that much self-esteem anyhow, since its logical culminating point can only be smug complacence?)”


Of course smug complacence. If you had been coddled and empowered and socially promoted and validated from birth, wouldn’t you be smugly complacent? What’s not to be smug about? Any problem life can throw at you can be cured with a shot, a pill, or few quick snips. At least until Auntie Visa calls in your chips. And complacent? ‘Tis better to be complacent in the soft luxuries we have than to risk the exertions we know not of.

“The greatest sins, Santayana thought, are those that set out to strangle human nature. This is of course what is being done in cultivating perpetual adolescence, while putting off maturity for as long as possible. Maturity provides a more articulated sense of the ebb and flow, the ups and downs, of life, a more subtly reticulated graph of human possibility. Above all, it values a clear and fit conception of reality. Maturity is ever cognizant that the clock is running, life is finite, and among the greatest mistakes is to believe otherwise. Maturity doesn't exclude playfulness or high humor. Far from it. The mature understand that the bitterest joke of all is that the quickest way to grow old lies in the hopeless attempt to stay forever young.”

Maturity necessitates seeing life as it is, not as a reflection of our deified Selves. Where’s the glory in that?

I for one am an adult and darn proud to be one. Being a grownup is infinitely more pleasing than the hysterical navel-gazing of youth. Unfortunately, I am one of the few, the proud, the adult.

Preach on Sister!

Read this article for a good synopsis of how younger workers like me are getting screwed into the ground by the insatiable greed of the increasingly elderly Baby Boomers. I lose 24 percent of my income in withholding taxes. I do get a chunk of that back at the end of the year (poverty does have certain benefits) but that still guts my ability to have anything even remotely resembling a lifestyle. If I am going to lose that much needed dough to a “social security” scheme, I should at least at some point benefit from that scheme right? Wrong. When I retire, if I ever can, all that money taken from me will be gone. My sweat of my brow is being siphoned off to pay for some rich geezer’s viagra. All that Ponzi cash, ‘scuse me, social security contribution funds are coming on top of the student loans that I (and most everyone else my age) was forced to take out to afford college. Now that I’m finally in the workforce, Satan’s Generation is hell-bent on ensuring I can never leave it. Retire? On what? The Social Security funds the Boomers will have sucked down like designer latte? People wonder why Boomers are going to get put on ice flows and kicked out to sea.

OUR PASSION

I wonder, of course, how long the images of my “viewing” this past Saturday of The Passion of the Christ will stay with me, how long before I am left with the seemingly mundane struggle to keep focused on Crucifixion planted firmly in me—and in all creation. I’m distracted, of course, by the New York Times campaign of these last several months to bury Mel Gibson and his film—may the Times have the same luck unhorsing W!—as I was distracted where I teach by a crazed librarian brandishing a copy of the New Yorker, open to its garish cartoon of a bloody Gibson on a cross, to everybody who would give him a second. It’s a gory film, yes—and brutal beyond words—but that’s the way it was. And is. I love Easter Sunday, but, as Richard John Neuhaus says in his absolutely moving series of meditations on the last words of Jesus, Death on a Friday Afternoon, Good Friday is the order of our days here and now. The Times and the New Yorker are, of course, in their own way, New York City, and they do influence opinion nationwide. But so is the cross-wearing Korean check-out clerk on my corner who, when I asked her if she’d seen The Passion, said that she had, and that she had “fainted from what was done to our Savior.” And in her way, she does influence. Given her Cross, given the odds, my money is on her.

what not to do. Now you've become a devout Christian and have spent more time

Still don't believe the media wears its biases on its collective sleeve? Here's Jennifer C. Braceras at NRO on the topic:

"There is a double standard when it comes to reviewing controversial depictions of the life of Jesus. In the view of the media elite, those portrayals that raise questions about the Christian Bible or Catholic doctrine are generally applauded as courageous works of genius, while those that reinforce Christian teachings or purport to portray a literal rendering of the Gospels are viewed as backwards or intolerant."

Hello Diversity, Goodbye Freedom.

The California Supreme Court today decreed that religious freedom ends where the random urge to shag begins. Thus Catholic Charities can be forced to act against central Catholic teachings. The CA Supremes say that Catholic Charities must offer birth control to its employees despite the fact that contraceptives are forbidden by the Church. It seems groups acting under the auspices of the Church don’t get the same protections as the Church herself. If this stands it won’t be long before the Church proper is forced to provide contraceptives to employees. Oh we’re not saying you have to approve of them or even stop teaching against them, the Anointed will say, you just have no right to act upon your beliefs. All for tolerance’s sake, of course. I say fight this ruling to the US Supreme Court. If CC loses, stop offering health coverage. If Free Exercise doesn’t apply to Catholic Charities, who the hell could it possibly apply to?
