Primitive People Are Smarter Than You Think

We have a very primitive but wise group of Asians living amongst us around here called Hmong. This is a Chinese minority group that has moved down into Laos in the last 300 years. They did not even have a written language until the 1950’s and they have always lived quite a primitive life in the jungles.

Nevertheless, they are quite wise. I read an ethnography on them one time. It said that the Hmong believe that women who get pregnant before 19-20 are more likely to have problems in childbirth. The people who figured this out had no knowledge of modern medicine. But we now know that females continue to develop until age ~18-19. Pregnancies before this age are more problematic because the female’s hips are not wide enough to carry a baby yet. The final widening of the hips sufficient to carry a baby does not occur until age ~19.

You will notice this if you see 16-18 year old girls with killer curves and skinny bodies. They look incredibly hot but their bodies are not natural. It’s not normal to be skinny and curvy. You want curves, you got a bigger woman. You want thin, you get a stick. These girls look this way because the body in a formal sense is fully developed by age 16 in the sense of sex drive, full breast and pubic hair development, menarche and the full curvy body shape with narrow stomach, wider hips and a projecting butt is present by age 16.

Except for one thing. The hips have not yet widened to full adult proportions. So the 16-18 year old girl look is not natural or normal. It is a phase of incomplete development and makes little sense biologically. Since it is not biologically correct, there are increased pregnancy issues at this age range.

When I learned that the Hmong have a traditional belief that females should not get pregnant until 19-20, I was stunned. These humans had learned this via trial and error over the centuries. They didn’t need modern medicine to tell them the facts. They figured them out on their own.

Similarly, the Hmong have a traditional belief that one cannot learn a new language after age 40. This has been a problem in my area because non-English speaking Hmong in this age group simply refuse to enroll in English classes and so never learn to speak English much at all. The men often pick up a bit of English anyway because they are often working, but the women tend to stay at home, so older Hmong women are often Hmong monolinguals.

I told my mother of this Hmong belief and she said, “Aha! See? They figured that out on their own. And they are probably right. By age 40, it will be awfully hard to pick up a new language.” And studies in formal linguistics are showing this to be true.

Sanskrit: A Language of Perfection

I disagree on one thing though. I believe that Sanskrit was learned as a first language for a long time in India. I can’t prove it, but this is what I believe.

In fact there is a village in India to this very day where Sanskrit is spoken as a first language. The entire village consists of Sanskrit native speakers. What’s odd is that it seems to be a low caste village in a rural area. The idea that Sanskrit is some super-language that is too complex to be learned by humans is negated by the fact that these impoverished, possibly malnourished (note effects on brain development) 82 IQ low caste rural learn Sanskrit perfectly well as a first language.

The truth is that there is no natural human language that is too wild, nutty, or complex to be learned by children. If a language was developed naturally by humans,  then it can be learned by human children. Any human children. Anywhere. Period. The child’s brain is like a sponge up until age 7-8 and any human language can be picked up quite effortlessly during this age range. There is indeed a Critical Period for language learning that begins to close at age 8 and continues to close until mid-adolescence when it is closed for good. However, I still believe that you will learn a language better if you start learning it at age 15 than at age 40.

Judith on Sanskrit, magic and the quest for the perfect language.

Judith Mirville: I learned Sanskrit (mostly in the intention to demystify the present-day New Age system of magic that claims of ancient Indian lore and just cannot.

For instance chakras as we claim to know them were just unknown to classical expounders of yoga, when you find the word used only once by Patanjali it only means the body’s axis of rotational momentum as both dancers and judokas learn to know to achieve perfect balance, it has nothing to do with any invisible organ made of subtle matter) : it is not so difficult if you realize first it was never meant to be spoken as a natural language, but learned as a second language as a kind of Esperanto that actually worked.

It is an artificial, contrived language that cannot have anything to do with divinity (actually the word deva can mean any spirit like the Greek daimon), though some part of it can be used for magic, which is something very different (and even as a language for magic, classical Arabic or Greek is superior).

It is not true it is too complicated for humans, it is complicated to use it because human bureaucrats (not divine beings) built it like a perfect computer programming language without allowing any divine intervention : it is perfect for the expression of all forms of political correctness first and foremost.

If you are a good computer programmer mastering several coding languages you can pick up Sanskrit much faster, because its rules are formulated in the same way as in a computer language manual (but that doesn’t fetch into very high mathematics, more into mere accounting, hence my analogy with computer languages). Unfortunately there is no divine imprint on Sanskrit, due to its utter lack of simplicity and also to its lack of cleanliness of design.

Why the Cultural Left Lies So Much

One of the many idiocies of the Cultural Left is that it hates so many traditional beliefs that human groups have. It hates them because these bits of traditional wisdom are typically not PC. The Cultural Left has an odd way of diving the truth.

Their exegesis goes like this:

If a statement is not PC, it is false.

If a statement is PC, it is true.

Wow! That’s quite an impressive philosophical view of the Truth they have there. Plato must be rolling in his grave!

So in a sense, the Cultural Left is waging war. One of the principle wars they are waging is a war against Normality. The Cultural Left hates the very idea that any human behavior is normal. If you say you are a normal person, the Cultural Left hates you. The only way to be accepted by them is to be a pervert, deviant or weirdo. Normal people are evil because they are insult to the freaks we all must become.

The other war that the Cultural Left wages is against Truth. The Cultural Left defines truth as PC. Falsehood means not PC. This stupid belief system is why the various Identity Politics Cultural Left groups lie so much. These IP groups just end up being propaganda vehicles for whatever group they are agitating on behalf of:

Gay Identity Politics is just propaganda for gays.

Feminism is simply propaganda for women.

Transsexual Politics is simply propaganda for trannies.

Modern antiracism is simply propaganda against racist beliefs since  the truth about Race violates many tenets of Antiracism, hence the need for propaganda to turn Truth into Lies and Lies into Truth.

Ethnic nationalism, all of it, is just propaganda for that particular ethnic group.

Islamic IP is simply Islamic propaganda.

Nationalism (the oldest form of IP, as IP is simply tribalism) is simply propaganda for that particular country.

Immigrant IP is just propaganda for immigrants.

Fat IP is propaganda for landwhales.

Looksist IP is propaganda for fuglies.

And on and on. Propaganda of course is based on lies. That’s pretty much the definition of it. Because the various IP forms are simply propaganda vehicles for the groups in question, the Cultural Left ends up lying continuously. Any blemished truths about the group must be denied. Anything positive about the group, if anything, must be exaggerated to the point of absurdity. You can’t have a belief system that says what’s good for my guys is Truth and what’s bad for my guys is Falsehood. If you do, every other statement out of your mouth is going to be a lie designed to protect and promote your group.

“Your Grandmother Was Right”: The Importance of Traditional Wisdom

It’s quite amazing how many scientific facts about human beings that primitive people have learned through the centuries by trial and error and observation. Most traditional wisdom about the human condition has a large aspect of truth to it. Humans are not stupid. Human groups do not learn lies as traditional wisdom over the centuries. Instead they tend to learn truths.

I call this, “Your grandmother was right!” It is important even in our modern era to pay attention to the traditional wisdom of ages that groups of humans have. My experience has shown that traditional wisdom, while not necessarily PC, often has a huge Slab of Truth packed into its Knowledge Sandwich. The fact that traditional wisdom is so often not PC is why the Cultural Left hates traditional wisdom so much.

Islam as a Race: A Possible New Deal for the Muslims and the Rest of Us

Some interesting ideas along these lines from a commenter:

Halal Butcher of Lhasa: It’s immaterial. Polygamy is Arab culture sanctified through Islam. Condemning polygamy and sharia law inside Sunni Arabia is like…

1) Poking fun at their greatest national hero Mohamed.

2) Civilizational self denial. Comparatively, it’s like asking Hindus to eat beef or condemn casteism as racism.

To ease the problem (categorically I’m not against Arab nationalism), here’s something I posted at another site:

……………………..

Should Muslims lobby to be recognized a separate race?

The more religious Muslims sure act like a race visually and symbolically through their costume, language of worship, diet.

Now should they lobby to be recognized as a separate race, and for whose sake?

PROS:

If the Muslims were a separate race like the Jews, the less religious Muslims can comfortably become secular or even agnostic and atheist, just like Freud and Marx are still considered Jewish by broad segments of Jewry.

Racial discrimination still carries a more negative tag than other forms of prejudice.

Now religious struggle can hoist the banner of national liberation against foreign aggression. Boko Haram/IS boys are just freedom fighters against foreign fascism.

So Muslims can tell the kufirs, “Look, we are a 1.5 billion+ race, DON’T FUCK WITH US.”

CONS: I can’t name any, except it might heighten Muslims vs kufirs tension immediately.

Other possibilities:

  • a) The Shiites might also declare themselves a race different from that of Sunnis.
  • b) Some Muslim scientists could declare their finding that Koran recital can trigger mutation or racial change.
  • c) Under the banner of ‘We Muslims aren’t racist’ and racial harmony:
  1. i) The secular Muslims can now seek peace with kufirs, chanting M. L. King fashion: ”I have a dream…” or “I’ve been to the Al-Aqsa (Temple Mount) top..”
  2. ii) Traditionally Muslim women don’t marry non-Muslim men, under the new racial setting they could – interracial marriage no big deal, right?
  3. d) The homo Muslims who fight for gay rights under the banner of ‘Gay Jihad’ can dilute the religious controversy and might even give jihad a good name, at least to the liberals.
  4. No pun intended – there really are a number of serious sites on ‘gay jihad’:

US Patriotism as Fundamentalist Religion

Tony Swagger: Read this, EPGAH

Hell EPGAH probably wants a war with Russia.

EPGAH thinks exactly like almost 100% of Americans. Almost all Americans think that US foreign policy can do no wrong. Everything the US does foreign policy-wise is always 100% good and 0% bad. We are always good. We are always the angels. We are never bad. We are never the evildoers.

The Pentagon is always good. The Army is always good. Even the CIA is always good. The vast majority of liberal Democrats I know love the Pentagon, the Army and even the CIA!

It is almost a religious way of thinking. It is extremely prominent to the point where it is very hard to find one American anywhere who will say one word against US foreign policy. I think people believe it is unpatriotic. Foreign policy is the essence of the nation. Attack foreign policy or that silly army with its twisted psychopathic generals and you are spitting right on that darned flag itself. The army is the country. The Pentagon is America. The Pentagon, the army and the flag are all the same thing. They are all America, part of the secular God of patriotism.

Domestic policy can be good or bad, but the country is always still good. If domestic policy sucks, it is not because the country sucks but because the party who put in the domestic policy sucks. People I know always think America is pristine, pure, all white and angelic. If domestic policy is crap, it is because of those evil Republicans. Republicans pure black, pure evil, 100% devils. Democrats wear all white all year, are never wrong and are always right. If you criticize the Godly Democrats than you are one of the dark ones, the Republican evildoers.

They really don’t get that it’s Americans who elect the government. Unless you live in a dictatorship, if your government is crap, it’s because you are crap! Crappy governments exist because crappy humans put them in there. The state is always a reflection of the people. Lousy people, lousy state. Good people, good state. It’s pretty simple. But the people I know never see it that way.

America itself is always that shining city on the Hill, forever fighting for good against the forces of Darkness the world over. Even if right now we are sliding into fascism, the country itself is still pure, virginal and innocent of all guilt. The party sucks, but the country is good. The government sucks, but the country is good. The party and the government suck, but the people are still good.

It’s a very weird way to think. As I write this, I can’t help thinking that this is a fundamentalist religious way of looking at patriotism. American patriotism is a fundamentalist religion as nutty and irrational as any other group of Talibans.

This rabid, lunatic patriotism will be the last thing to ever die as we continue to swirl down this golden toilet we built for ourselves, our shrine to our culture in decline and fall. Even when we are crumbling amidst the ruins, barely able to stand, emaciated, homeless and deadly ill, our dying hands will still reach for that silly flag and wave it in the air like the little children we are.

Liberal Democrats Are Part of the Problem – They Have to Go

The vast majority of liberal Democrats I know love the Pentagon, the Army and even the CIA! This is what I mean when I say liberal Democrats are crap. Liberal Democrats are Daily Kos. Go on over there. Tell me when you find one liberal Democrat to say one word about the glorious Pentagon, Army and especially that CIA shrine that they worship.

You won’t find it. Liberal Democrats have got to go. The Democratic Party has got to go. It’s part of the system, and the system is totally contaminated. The American system is like a container of spoiled food. Trying to fix the system within the existing institutions is like throwing in more and more good food to try to drown out the spoiled food. That doesn’t really work. You just end up spoiling the good stuff you threw in and now you have an even bigger pile of spoiled food. Spoiled food goes down the garbage drain. That’s the only solution.

Likewise with America. The whole damn system is spoiled rotten. We need to get rid of the whole thing, crush and destroy all of these crappy institutions, both horrific parties, the vile and horrific Orwellian media, the whole nine yards. Renewal through creative destruction.

In that sense, I am with Steve Bannon.

Bannon is said to be Alt Right. And I am Alt Left. As awful as the Alt Right is, they do share one thing with the Alt Left. We both think the system is beyond reform. We both want to tear down the whole decrepit mess and throw up a brand new building.

Bannon and I are both Leninists, but he is a reactionary Leninist and I am a revolutionary one.

The system is cannot be fixed. It’s far too gone for that. Time to trash it all and start anew. From the ashes of the collapse, a new Phoenix shall rise to renew and rebuild. Hopefully this time we can sort of do it right. Even 5% right would be ok by me. It would still be an improvement!
