Yes, the Vietnam War Was Wrong, and Yet, Thank You for Your Service

I did not like this war one bit, but I think we should go easy on the guys who fought over there. Face it, they are just pawns. Their country called, they answered. If if their country called them for a dubious thing, the fact that they answered is still worth something. My main beef against the US military is that we hardly ever fight on the side of the good guys anymore. We are always for the bad guys or at least fighting for some dubious cause.

And we commit war crimes like crazy, though we seem to be getting a lot better about this. The Rules of Engagement in Iraq were much stricter than in Vietnam and certainly than in Korea, where I wonder if we were even following any rules at all. We need to knock it off with the White Phosphorus already though. We no longer use napalm (thank God!) and we have ended the use of cluster bombs (good show!). We really need to end the use of all depleted uranium ammunition though. The stuff is toxic as Hell and it’s got to go.

Almost no enemy POW’s were executed in Iraq or Afghanistan. I am afraid that we did this in Vietnam (CIA’s abominable Phoenix Plan), and in Korea, it looks like there were some terrible cases of this and even of US troops executing hundreds of South Korean civilians. My Lai was not the only massacre in Vietnam. There were many more smaller ones. It was fairly common for US soldiers to rape and murder young Vietnamese women villagers, especially in enemy territory. No, I do not approve of setting huts on fire in villages. Free-fire zones were a complete abomination. Carpet bombing with B-52’s is madness. The use of Agent Orange was an outrage.

US troops were not really monsters. After Tet, severe cynicism set in among US soldiers. Drug use skyrocketed, especially heroin, and I believe ceasefires were often negotiated with the local NVA or Viet Cong. Fragging or assassination of hated officers by those under the command rose to epidemic levels. Many to most of the men felt that the cause they were fighting for was complete bullshit, and they were probably right. We had a draft in the US, and those men were called up and ordered to serve. You can hardly fault a soldier for being drafted into war.

But I will say that the US military is damn good. And I can respect that. The 173rd Airborne was legendary in Vietnam. It has long been said to be one of the finest units in the US military, and I believe they may still exist.

Does it make sense to say that you thought the war was a great big mistake and still thank the men who served for their service? I don’t know, but I am going to do it anyway.

Just Got a Lifetime Ban from Daily Kos

Daily Kos is Ground Zero for the Base of the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party’s Base is more leftwing than the party itself in the same way that the Republican Base is more rightwing than the party itself. Party Bases tend to be like that. The Base of the Democratic Party would best be called the Left Wing of the Democratic Party. Now granted, there are some decent people on there. There are actually a fair number of Marxists and socialists hanging out in the Democratic Party Base.  After all, they have nowhere else to go. But this is a quite small percentage of the Base.

I have been banned for life from Daily Kos, and honestly it is a blessing because I absolutely despise most Democratic Party liberal types. The problem with them is that there’s nothing liberal about them. In any sane system, they would be something like what used to be called a Liberal Republican. They just flat out suck!

Their foreign policy is horrific. Almost all liberal Democrats are ((neocon)) fanatics. The whole left wing of the Democratic Party is completely overrun with a ((certain type of people)). As usual, they destroy that wing of the party as a result. They love Israel! The Democratic Party can’t get enough of wonderful Israel. Wonderful Israel is the greatest country on Earth.

Almost 100% of them support the war against the Syrian people we are waging with our Al Qaeda and ISIS allies. They hate Russia! They love the Ukrainian Nazis! Yeah, I know, makes no sense. They love Israel and they also love Al Qaeda, ISIS and real actual Nazis in the Ukraine. But that’s the exact geopolitics of (((certain people))) in the US, and as (((these people))) control this wing of the party, (((their))) values become everyone’s values. The love NATO! They hate North Korea, and some of them want to attack North Korea! They love US imperialism! They love the Pentagon! They love the CIA! They love the FBI!

Everyone on Kos loved this maniac named “Mad Dog” Maddis, the new general heading  up the Pentagon under Trump. Personally, I think he’s psycho, and he’s just another War Pig. Actually he’s worse than your ordinary War Pig. He’s a particularly belligerent type of militarist War Pig. A very frightening man.

And of course that whole wing of the party has been taken over by some time now by the most insane of the SJW’s.

They love free trade agreements! I would say 85% of Kossacks love the TPP, all because their hero Hitlery was pushing it. Kossacks suck! They love globalization!

They are all for Open Borders and Amnesty! As a matter of fact, I believe it has been a bannable offense on there for some time now to oppose illegal immigration.

I will say though that there are now some anti-Israel and anti-Zionist types on there. There are a few who support Syria and even some who support Russia. These might be 20% of Kossacks. However, Israel has become such a divisive hot button issue that I believe all discussion of the Israel-Palestinian Question has been banned. It’s nice to see that the Israel-Palestine Question has become incendiary at all in the Democratic Base though. Things are slowly changing.

There was actually a huge Bernie Sanders movement on Daily Kos, and there was a near civil war between Killary and Sanders supporters on there. Mods were continually having to wade in and sort out wild shouting matches and near virtual fistfights on the site. I did enjoy seeing the emergence of a Bernie wing. The one redeeming feature of the Base right now is this Bernie wing. Hope springs eternal!

On most economic type issues, Kossacks are generally very good. Of course they’re correct that this current crop of Republicans is worse than cancer. I agree. In fact, these Kossacks are the closest thing to “my people” anywhere on the Web. Which is partly why the ban was so painful.

OK, now for the ban story.

A Kossack wrote a typical article on there about one of the many false flags the (((US))) and Al Qaeda have been staging in Syria. This one was one of the many fake chemical weapons false flags. Unbelievably, there have been ~40-50 chemical weapons false flag attacks in Syria so far. The (((US government))) helped to propagandize every single one of them, and we were apparently directly involved in others.

I know that the DIA was directly involved in the famous Fake Sarin Gas Attack in Ghouta in the Damascus suburbs a few years ago. As has been the case in a number of these attacks, not only did Assad not shoot any Sarin or any other chemical weapons that day, even more bizarrely than that is the fact there was no Sarin of chemical weapons attack by anyone, Syria or the rebels, in Ghouta that day. The Fake Sarin Attack was like the Gulf of Tonkin Incident and all sorts of staged false flag bullshit the US engages in.

This was an attack that, incredibly, never even happened! We are talking about an event that never even occurred! Isn’t that incredible? The recent “Sarin” attack in Khan Sheikoun was similar. Once again, not only did Assad not shoot Sarin or any other chemical weapons (he has none to shoot), but the rebels didn’t either. Once again we are talking about an attack that never even happened. What happened instead, as in Ghouta, was a fake staged phony attack which was meant to portray the real one.

Anyway, this (((good goy))) on ((Kos)) was going on about the evil Assad, how he launches chemical weapons on his people and how we need to send our close allies ISIS and Al Qaeda in to finish him off. The usual Zionist jerkoff on (((Kos))). The place is swarming with Zionists. They are practically crawling all of the walls and even up on the ceiling of the place.

So I posted a comment where I said something like:

“What’s the name of your hometown? Tel Aviv?”

Basically questioning his loyalty to America and suggesting that he was guilty of dual loyalty.

Well, the other (((Kossacks))) absolutely flipped out and called in some (((moderators))). I was immediately labeled a Republican Trump-supporting troll. The (((commenters))) were beside themselves about my “outrageous, bizarre and appallingly anti-Semitic remark.” On the contrary, I was quite proud of that remark. Hey, if you are running interference for Israel, we have a right to check you out to make sure you do not have dual loyalty as so many of those types do.

So now I have a lifetime ban at ((Daily Kos)) for “anti-Semitism.”

Fuck ((Daily Kos)). Fuck the ((Democratic Party)). Fuck ((liberal Democrats)).

Alt Left: If the Rate of Homosexuality in Populations Can Increase or Decrease, What’s to Stop It from Going Full-blown to 100% or Even 0? Do Humans Just Reap the Most Benefits by Having Homosexuals at 10%?

Answered on Quora.

The 10% figure is one of the biggest lies out there, but everyone believes it. It is repeated by gay activists and the Gay Lobby like a mantra, but it is almost certainly not true. It is based on the Kinsey Study, but even the Kinsey Study did not find that 10% of the population were truly gay in the way a gay person is now.

Like anyone else, gay people would like to increase their numbers. I don’t blame them.

If I were gay, I would want as many hot men available to date as possible. The fact that 97% of males are not gay must be very depressing to gay men. I think it would make me not only depressed but confused. How could I tell which men were gay and which were not?
Gaydar is another lie of the Gay Lobby. The truth is it doesn’t even work. Gay men hit on straight men all the time thinking that we straight men are gay. Obviously their Gaydar is broken. So if Gaydar doesn’t work and is just a conceit, and you really can’t figure out if a man is gay or not, what is a gay man to do? I am thinking it must be Hellish. What infernal confusion!

The truth is that many population studies in the US consistently find that at the most 3% of the US population identifies themselves as gay. There may be some closet cases lying in the surveys, but I doubt if there are many. In some studies, half of those 3% are married to women! How is that compatible with these studies being flawed by mass hidden closet cases? They keep doing the surveys, and they keep coming up with at the most 3% of men are gay. So we have to use the 3% figure in talking about the gay percentage of the population.

Gay activists and their Lobby hate these low figures because they think there is strength in numbers. They think that if people think there are only a tiny number of gay men, people will be freer to bully and persecute them. Whereas if they are a large figure like 10%, people will accept them more. I am not sure if it is true. Maybe it is. But they’re still lying, even if they are lying for a good reason. The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.

I would like to differentiate between gay men in general and gay activists and the Gay Lobby. Quite a few gay men dislike the Lobby and the activists. I have a gay friend who despises both of them. He says gay men just need to get married, move to the suburbs in a nice house and live quietly and unobtrusively like the rest of their neighbors. I concur!

So please do not think that by attacking the activists and the Lobby I am attacking all gay men. Certainly not. In fact, I encourage gay men to reject both activism and the Lobby. They’re counterproductive, and ~80% of the things they say are flat out lies. Gay activism, like all the other Identity Politics, is just propaganda. As feminism is nothing but propaganda for women, gay activism is nothing but propaganda for gays.

Nevertheless, I encourage all gay men to fight for their basic rights. I just don’t think lying is the right way to get what’s due to them. Not only will I support them, but I will help them, as I participate in some worthy gay political campaigns!

Surveys done with medical students found that ~3–4% of men identify as gay, gay being 0–100 to 20–80 on a scale orientation where 0–100 = completely gay. Another 2% identify as gay-leaning bisexuals, these being 30–70 to 40–60 on the same scale. Only 1% of men identify as fully bisexual, showing the stereotype about few people being purely bisexual is based on fact.

Adding up the numbers, 6% of men in these surveys identify as leaning gay, either bisexual or fully gay. Keep in mind that 2% of those men have a pretty strong lean towards women too, so they are not that gay. Another 1% are the “pure bis” who cannot logically be seen as gay either, neither can they be seen as straight. These are the people most perfectly identified as bisexual.

So population surveys get 3%, and medical student surveys get 6%. I don’t know what to do. Let’s go by majority rules and take the population surveys and say that 3% of men are gay.

This figure tends to be pretty steady for whatever reason. My research leads me to believe that true biological homosexuality (which surely exists and is the case with most gay men) is caused by hormonal aberrations and abnormalities in the womb. I doubt if it is genetic. There is some pretty good evidence leading to this conclusion. For whatever reason, these hormonal aberrations seem to occur in only ~3% of male births, and at least in the last few decades, nothing changes that.

Adding weight to my theory, there is research out there that shows that after 1990 in the Czech Republic, great efforts were put into monitoring pregnant women, adjusting their hormonal levels to the proper level, and keeping them from going off. Incredibly, research showed that this effort caused the rates of homosexuality and transsexualism to plummet. Not collapse but plummet.

Therefore, there may indeed by a “cure” for male homosexuality or at least a way to prevent it. I assure you that the Gay Lobby does wish to do anything to prevent homosexuality and transsexualism even if the mother desires this. But this shows how we might be able to artificially lower or even raise the rate of male homosexuality.
Now since the rate seems to be at a steady rate of 3%, and all evidence seems to be that the 3% rate (or lower) is the norm all over the world for biological male homosexuality, I would say we have nothing to worry about gay men taking over the world, though some of the real radicals would love to do that, trust me. Go read some of their documents. But the vast majority of gay men reject this gay chauvinism or gay imperialism.

The rate is 3% now, and it will be 3% in the future, unless we start lowering it as above.

This is why the question does not make sense. If biological male homosexuality occurs at a steady low rate everywhere on Earth without change, the rate of such cannot go much higher than 3%, certainly not to 100%, and it will not go down zero either, at least naturally on its own.

On the other hand, straight men have a tremendous potential for bisexuality. There are societies currently and in the past where very high percentages of men (up to 95%) engaged in regular sex with men (while also having lots of sex with women) throughout their lives. So you can definitely end up with societies like Afghanistan where many straight (by sexual orientation) men engage in homosexual behavior.
We must distinguish between orientation and behavior. They tend to follow each other pretty well but not always. Ancient Greece and Rome are good examples of where they can diverge a lot.

Now if you want to ask what would happen if 100% of men were behaviorally bisexual and were engaging in sex with men on a regular basis as in Ancient Greece and Rome, that’s another question, and I don’t think you questioner is asking that here. Personally I think it would be utterly catastrophic, although gay men would think they were in Paradise. Then again, the sky has not fallen in Afghanistan, where something like this is already going on.

Male homosexuality is bad for society. It brings along a whole host of problems and yes, diseases, along with it which impose considerable cost on society. I would like to add that these problems impose these costs on gay men themselves in terms of mental and physical illness, a whole lot of very sketchy behavior, and a culture that does not seem to be healthy at all in many ways. Despite the societal effects, the overwhelming costs of these problems are borne by gay men themselves.

Nevertheless, I feel that these are gay men’s problems. It is unspeakably rude and selfish to say that gay men’s problems which hurt them so much are terrible for the rest of us for whatever reason. It’s like someone walks into your house with a broken leg wanting help and you scream at him for ruining your day. How rude! How selfish!
Gay men’s problems are for them to solve. We need to stay out of it. If they want to deal with this stuff, let them go to it. We will help them, but the ball’s in their court.

I would like to point out that lots of things are not good for society, but we allow or tolerate them anyway, as it’s just not the place of society or the state to regulate people’s behavior, lifestyles, and choices.

In terms of the costs to society, yes there are some, especially in disease burden and medical expenses, but keep in mind that gay men are only 3% of the male population and a tiny 1.5% of the total population. Basically, whatever problems male homosexuality causes, we in the US can handle them very easily because gay men’s numbers are so small. If the percentages of gay men were to climb radically beyond 3%, the costs to society would be much more severe, and it would be something we could not deal with well. But that’s a whole other hypothetical problem.

As far as benefits go, I am going to be a radical here and say that society as a whole probably reaps exactly zero benefits from homosexuality either male or female. The effects on society are either negative or (mostly) neutral, but even when they are negative, their tiny numbers allow us to handle these effects well.

For the life of me, as a straight man, I cannot fathom any benefits from having gay men in my society. Somebody needs to clue me here. What’s in it for me, or for straight society as a whole? Color me confused!

Most straight men would probably be perfectly happy to never deal with another gay man for the rest of our lives. It’s not that they are horrible for us, but there’s no benefit at all, and there is a certain downside (they constantly try to seduce us). Most of us don’t really hate them at all (we are more indifferent towards them than anything else) but we don’t feel any special love for them, and I wager they would not be missed.

Nevertheless, despite this fact of there being no benefit to us, we straight men need to support full rights for biologically gay men. We need to wish for them the same happy and healthy lives as we do for ourselves, not even 1% less.

Please realize that these men did not choose to be this way. We straight men are straight only due to sheer luck and a roll of the genetic dice. Any of us could have ended up gay too. If you are straight, try to imagine if you had been wired up gay instead. Imagine yourself just as you are, except you are a gay man instead of a straight man. That’s called empathy. What would you like to the world to be like? This is the world that straight men need to create for gay men, not for any particular reason, but only because it’s simply the right thing to do.

No matter what we straight men think about male homosexuality (and a lot of us are profoundly repulsed by it), nevertheless at the end of the day, we have to be kind.

Suicide: The Ultimate Enigma

Becoming suicidal is often but not always indicative of mental illness. Philosophically, it simply means that you do not want to live anymore, and you don’t have to be nuts to feel way. Life’s hard for everyone, and at some point, a lot of people just can’t take it anymore and want to bail out or end the pain. Indeed, a person certainly feels no more pain after suicide.

People kill themselves for all sorts of reasons. Only 70% of suicides are clinically depressed. A lot of people commit suicide simply out of boredom, believe it or not. Some people seem to do it for absolutely no reason at all. It’s as if they did it for shits and giggles or as a way of trolling the human race. I suppose in a way, suicide is the ultimate troll. Suicides are trolling the whole damn world, every one of us.

Suicide is a mystery.

We have been studying it forever, and we still hardly know a thing about it. A man wrote a big book on suicide a while back, and at the end of the book he said he didn’t understand suicide any better at the end than when he had started.

Some countries have high suicide rates, and no one seems to know why. Other countries have low suicide rates, and no one knows why.

Hungary had high suicide rates under feudalism, monarchy, fascism, communism and now democracy. People killed themselves at the same rate in all systems.

The Japanese have always had a high suicide rate, and no one knows why. Impoverished North Korea has an extremely low suicide rate while next door ultra-wealthy Japan has a very high rate. There is no good explanation for the difference.

 

It may be cultural. Some societies may be more pro-suicide than others.

Anti-socialists like to say that Swedes have a high suicide rate. They claim that Swedish socialism gives people everything they need and maybe want, but it leaves them bored and unmotivated and hopeless to improve their lot, so they end it all. But all places on Earth at that latitude have a high suicide rate. It is so dark half the year that the sun only comes out for a few hours a day, and it is cold all the time. There are high suicide rates in Norway, Iceland, Finland, Estonia, Russia (especially Siberia), Alaska, Northern Canada, and Greenland. Anyway, the Swedes had a high suicide rate even before socialism. Other countries have an identical system to Swedish socialism, and they have low suicide rates.

Actually, the suicide rate was comparatively low in the USSR and Eastern Europe under communism. However, with the transition to capitalism in 1990, suicide rates skyrocketed over the next 10-15 years as did forms of slow suicide such as drinking oneself to death. So the Communism/socialism causes suicide theory seems to be washed up. If anything, suicide seems to be linked to capitalism a lot more than it is linked to socialism or Communism.

Nigeria is one of the most hellish and nightmarish places on Earth at least from my perspective, and from any point of view, it’s basically a shithole. In fact, it is probably one of the foulest shitholes on Earth. Yet Nigerians typically among the happiest people on Earth. They’re smiling amid the stinking, crime-infested, ultraviolent ruins, while the Swedes and Japs are blowing their brains out in lavish apartments drowning in luxury.

Go figure.

Bottom line is that a lot of human behavior is either not easily explained or simply doesn’t seem to make much sense at all. People feel however they do for whatever reasons they do, and it’s often hard to figure out why.

At the end of the day, human behavior is largely a mystery.

How Al Qaeda Was Born

Although the Muslim Brotherhood is officially opposed to Al Qaeda and tends to take a legalist and democratic approach to obtaining power, the organization is nevertheless very radical and many radical Muslims gravitate to the MB as the only game in town. In turn, as they radicalize in the MB, the more radicalized people spin off  to Al Qaeda, ISIS and other radical jihadi groups.  Then some of the Al Qaeda people spin back into the Brotherhood, this time hiding their radical views.

It is not well known, but Hamas is nothing less than the Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood. The MB is illegal in Saudi Arabia, Syria and Qatar. They led an uprising in 1982 in Syria where 30,000 people were killed. The survivors went to Europe and also to Saudi Arabia where they met up with Egyptian MB members who were working and teaching in the Kingdom. These MB religious folk were then in turn influenced by the allegedly quietist Wahhabism, the official doctrine of Saudi Arabia. The MB religious teachers then supercharged Wahhabism while Wahhabism itself radicalized the MB teachers in terms of Islamic doctrine. It was this mixture of the Ikhwan and Wahhabism that eventually morphed into bin Laden’s Al Qaeda. From and around Al Qaeda all sorts of other radical jihadi groups emerged, especially in Iraq and Syria. Most of the groups in Syria are either Al Qaeda linked or inspired or if not, are not a great deal different from Syrian Al Qaeda, now called Al Nusra.

Another origin of Al Qaeda was in Egypt where as above, the MB served as a nursery of sorts for Islamic radicals. Radicals kept spinning off the MB and forming more radicalized splits. Sayed Qutb was one of the first, and Al Qaeda is simply Qutbism writ large. He was executed by Nasser in the 1950’s.

Another split occurred in the late 1970’s, when another radical group spun off of the MB and evolved into various factions. One of these factions developed the Qutbist notion that the entire Muslim world was now living in a state of jahaliyya or pre-Islamic ignorance. The entire society of Muslim Egypt was tainted by infidel and anti-Islamic influences. Some of these people dropped out of society and went to live like hermits in caves in the desert. They saw the entire society as corrupt and evil, so they had no alternative but to completely drop out of it and live in isolated hermitage like early Christians.

It was here that Zayman al-Zawahiri, the Egyptian eye surgeon and bin Laden’s 2nd in command, got his start. He developed some followers in the city he lived in and he eventually dropped out of society and went to live in caves with the rest of the radicals.

Around this time, a lot of these radicals got wrapped up in plot to assassinate Anwar Sadat, mostly for the crime of making peace with Israel. The assassins, of which there were several, were ex-MB members who had spun off from the group. About 1,000 radicals were rounded up after the assassination. Al-Zawahiri was one of them. There is footage of a wild-eyed Zawahiri in a crowded jail cell with ~40 other men. He is gripping the cell bars and shouting along with many others.

After his release, Zawahiri went on to form the Egyptian Islamic Jihad. This and several other very radical jihadi groups waged war on the Egyptian state in the early 80’s. Zawahiri’s movement, which had ~1,500 members, was crushed by the state. Jihadis were taken out into the Egyptian desert, tied to a pole and left there. It didn’t take long for them to perish from lack of food or water. In this way, the movement was crushed. Zawahiri fled Egypt and may have taken up with bin Laden in Sudan for a while.

The remains of Islamic Jihad combined with the nascent Al Qaeda forming in the Kingdom via the mixture of Egyptian and Syrian MB and Saudi Wahhabis to form the nucleus of the early Al Qaeda.

Al Qaeda got increasingly radicalized during bin Laden’s stay there. Finally both men went to Afghanistan for the Afghan jihad which radicalized huge numbers of Muslims all over the world, mostly in the Arab World. As they fought in Afghanistan, they become increasingly radicalized. Zawahiri had always argued for fighting the “near enemy” first – the secular Arab regimes, but bin Laden’s radical theory was to switch from a war only against the near enemy to a war against the “far enemy,” which bin Laden called the US for its support for Israel and the secular Arab dictatorships.

The MB is hated and outlawed in Qatar and Saudi Arabia more on the grounds of rivalry than anything else. Qatar and the Saudis see the Ikhwan as a threat to royal power. After a military coup overthrew the elected MB government in Egypt, the new leader Sisi has formed a major alliance with the Saudis and the Qataris. The Saudis have responded by flooding Sisi’s government with oil money.

In Jordan, most of the Parliament is made of the MB members, which is one reason why the powers of the Parliament have been severely limited by the King.

The MB is quite active in north Lebanon near Tripoli where Lebanon’s 20% Sunnis live. These people have become increasingly radicalized and are now engaged in open warfare with Alawis living in some of these cities. Some of these Sunnis also seem to have gone to Syria to join up with the jihadi groups. The MB in this part of Lebanon is known for its dislike of Lebanon’s Shia and Hezbollah.

The MB was formed by Hassan Al-Banna, an Egyptian schoolteacher, in 1922. It is one of the oldest radical Muslim groups in the world.

Indian Hindus – Portrait of a Parasitical People

Excellent post from the comments from Angie Cohen, a physician in New York City.

Angie Cohen: Bhabiji: This is going to be a lengthy post.

I have noticed that you have conveniently ignored a lot of Robert’s points in his post. Allow me to address them with facts and evidence. I will mention some of Mr. Lindsay’s points and address them vis-a-vis your convoluted rants defending Hinduism:

#1: Robert’s point on the sheer hypocrisy and hideousness of upper caste Hindus, especially the Brahmins.

He clearly mentioned their disdain for people whom they consider lower castes or “dalits,” while both defending the caste system, and when cornered with logic and facts, even denying the existence of Casteist- based discrimination and atrocities against lower castes by Brahmin & other upper caste thugs in India.

You seem to have ignored that and instead deviated to defending the evils of Puranic Hinduism and the idiotic mythical Ramayana rubbish.

#2: Robert’s point on the Brahmins’ hatred for Western culture and Christianity while glorifying a mythical idealistic ancient Hindu Vedic civilization extolling the superiority of Hindus vs the others (Christians, Muslims etc).

The Brahman-dominated Hindutvadi losers do all these while ironically doing everything they can to dump their failed Hindurashtra and then leave for Judeo-Christian-based secular nations such as the United States, Australia, UK, Canada and even some EU nations. That is a strange dichotomy. Almost a walking contradiction!

#3: Robert’s point on Hindu savagery and backwardness.

Despite what Brahmin supremacists love to claim online under anonymity or in some pathetic RSS/BJP/ Ultra rightwing Hindu club eulogizing the greatness of Vedic civilization and the genius of the upper caste Hindu mind, all evidence points to quite the opposite.

Show me ONE place, just one place on Earth where Hindus (upper castes or otherwise), despite being easily able to congregate together (Heck they have a whole freaking nation for themselves, i.e. Modi’s Brahman-dominated upper caste-run India – a failed shithole!) have been able to build a decent or successful society which is both fully functional and advanced. Pretty sure there is NOT one.

The Evidence:

What do White Christians create in terms of advancement & beauty?

The holiest sites for Hindu Brahmans – Varanasi & River Ganges created, maintained, and run by Hindu Brahmins, is the utopia we create and then delude ourselves of our supposed superiority.

Brahman-supported Hindu Supremacist leader Modi’s beloved Gujarat – we do believe in Rupee for Poopee!

Hindu dominated India’s staggeringly low IQ:

Hindu-dominated India has a very low IQ of just 82, far lower than ANY Western nation (North & South Americas, Europe, Russia, Australia & New Zealand). This point explains Indian incompetence in the medical and technical fields, which is why we the western world have to pretty much share all our science, technology & civilization with these arrogant ingrates.

http://www.searchindia.com/2016/04/28/are-indian-h1bs-low-iq-chutiyas/

Hindu incompetence in the engineering and tech fields:

http://www.gadgetsnow.com/jobs/95-engineers-in-india-unfit-for-software-development-jobs-claims-report/articleshow/58278224.cms

Hindu incompetence in the medical field:

From Great Britain – incompetent Hindu doctors wrecking havoc there:

http://www.unz.com/article/bad-medicine-the-sickening-truth-about-britains-foreign-doctors/

Not only are they highly incompetent in their technical work, they have this brash, arrogant attitude mixed with a rude demeanor which makes them very unwelcome here. Not just the IT sector filled with unintelligent Hindu zombies, but even the medical industry has suffered the plague of Hindu incompetence. A few years back the Australian government suffered the outcome of inviting one such upper caste Hindu, Dr. Jayant Patel, who would turn out to break the world record for the highest number of cases of death and medical negligence owing to his sheer medical incompetence. He was labelled “Dr. Death” by the media which made his horrible work into international headlines.

http://www.theage.com.au/news/General/The-scandal-of-Dr-Death/2005/05/27/1117129900672.html

Even in India, take a cursory look at the number of so called medical doctors who have been banned or jailed for medical incompetence and negligence by the Medical Council of India – all happen to be upper caste Hindu doctors. Just look at the list below – excepting one random Muslim name, it pretty much reads from a telephone directory of some Hindu Brahmin or Baniya matrimonial column from New Delhi. It is interesting to note that NOT one Indian-Christian doctor made it in that shitlist of shame.

Now ask yourselves this question: Why does America, UK or Australia need more incompetent upper caste Hindu doctors or technocrats when it is plainly evident that these losers can’t hack it in terms of quality?

Just so that you know, the minority of Indian Christians still stuck in India are easy targets for persecution by the upper caste-dominated Hindu fascists of the ruling BJP government. The Indian Christian community is a highly intelligent, educated and industrious lot who have actually helped advance India into the 21st century. The Hindu fascists are the same folks who burnt alive and killed an Australian Christian man and his two young sons for helping poor & maligned leprosy patients in Orissa, India.

The Indian Christian community is actually a breath of fresh air here in the West. They are nothing like their Hindu countrymen. Generally highly competent, intelligent and very well-assimilated into Western culture, they are welcome here anytime. Can’t say the same for the Hindus, Sikhs, and especially the savage Muslims though.

Studies and statistics like those listed above should be shared and shown to official authorities and friends, colleagues, and families – just so we can all be secure in the knowledge of making an astute decision as to the current immigration trends.

Conclusion:

Indians, especially the Hindus, are highly parasitical. If and when some among them thrive or are successful, at best they migrate to somebody else’s land, neighborhood or club built, designed and created by someone else. Thus for all the spikes and bile they upper caste Hindu losers spew against Christendom, they are the first bunch of parasitical hypocrites who crawl on their rancid bellies and beg, borrow, or steal to dump Hindu India (Bharatvarsh) & instead migrate to Christian lands in the West.

And once there, these ingrates will do everything they can to undermine the host culture and people vis-a-vis their concomitant attacks against Christianity, our institutions, our jobs and especially against our women and culture. Unlike the Muslims, the Hindus are a lot more sly and do these acts in a covert manner. Except that people are waking up to their BS.

These Brahman hypocrites will steadily vote for the Left in Western countries while steadfastly supporting ultra rightwing policies and governments back in their homeland of India. Another walking contradiction.

So, if Hinduism is so great, “Bhabiji”, tell me when you book the next one-way ticket to “the enlightened land of Bharatvarsha” (India) and live, thrive and work in Hindustan without returning back to us inferior Jews & Christians of the West?

What language is this? Obviously it is from India, but which Indian language is it?

ஜ்யொர்ஜ் ஸாண்டர்ஸ் தன் குறு நாவலான இல் உருவாக்கியுள்ள நாடுகளான இன்னர் ஹார்னர் மற்றும் அவுட்டர் ஹார்னர் நாடுகளுக்கு உங்களை வரவேற்கிறேன். இந்த நாடுகளில் அப்படி என்ன விசேஷம்? பல உண்டு, உதாரணமாக அவுட்டர் ஹார்னர் நாட்டின் ஜனாதிபதிக்கு ஏழு வயிறுகள், ஐந்து மீசைகள், இன்னர் ஹார்னர் நாடோ ஒரே ஒரு ஆள் மட்டும் நிற்கக்கூடிய அளவிற்கு சிறிய நாடு.

என்னய்யா இது என்று நீங்கள் திடுக்கிட்டால், நீங்கள் ஸாண்டர்ஸின் உலகிற்குப் புதியவர் என்பது தெளிவாகும். தயக்கமில்லாமல் இந்த உலகில் நீங்கள் நுழையலாம், நாம் கற்பனை கூடச் செய்ய முடியாத உருவகங்களாகவும், குறியீடுகளாகவும் விரியும் ஒரு அபத்தமான, ஆனால் அலாதியான உலகு அவர் விரிப்பது. அதே நேரம் நம் உலகிற்கும் நெருக்கமான, அதனாலேயே பீதியளிக்கும் உலகை அதில் நீங்கள் காண்பீர்கள்.

இன்னர் ஹார்னர் நாட்டில் மொத்தம் ஏழு பேர் மட்டுமே பிரஜைகள், இருந்தாலும் மீதி ஆறு பேர் எங்கே வசிப்பார்கள்? தங்கள் அண்டை நாடான அவுட்டர் ஹார்னரில் அவர்களுக்காக ஒதுக்கப்பட்டுள்ள குறுகிய கால வசிப்பிடத்தில் அவர்கள் வாழ்கிறார்கள். சுழற்சி முறையில் ஒருவர் மாற்றி ஒருவர் தங்கள் தாய் நாட்டில் சில காலம் இருப்பார்கள்.இவர்கள் இப்படித் தங்குவது அவுட்டர் ஹார்னர் பிரஜைகள் சிலர் கண்ணை உறுத்துகிறது, இன்னர் ஹார்னர் மக்களோ இன்னும் சற்றே பெரிய இடத்தைத் தங்களுக்குக் கொடுக்கக்கூடாதா என்ற எண்ணம் உடையவர்கள்.

இப்படிச் சில பூசல்கள் இரண்டு நாட்டிற்குள்ளும் புகைந்து கொண்டிருந்தாலும், பெரிய பிரச்சனைகள் எதுவும் இல்லை. இந்நிலையில் ஒரு நாள் இன்னர் ஹார்னர் இன்னும் சிறியதாகி விடுகிறது. எனவே அப்போது அந்நாட்டில் வசிக்கும் எல்மரின் ஒரு பகுதி அவுட்டர் ஹார்னர் நாட்டிற்குள் இப்போது வந்து விடுகிறது. ஆரம்பிக்கிறது பிரச்சனை.

இரு நாட்டு மக்களும் இந்த நிகழ்வை எப்படி எதிர்கொள்வது எனக் குழம்ப, ஃபில் என்ற நடுவயதான ஆண், தன் கருத்துக்களால் மக்கள் கவனத்தை ஈர்க்கிறான். இவன் அதுவரை உருப்படியாக எதுவும் செய்ததில்லை, மற்ற அவுட்டர் ஹார்னர் மக்கள் அவனை ஒரு பொருட்டாக மதித்ததில்லை, சுருக்கமாகச் சொன்னால் அவர்கள் பார்வையில் அவன் ஒரு உதவாக்கரை. இப்போதோ அவன் கருத்துக்களால் அவர்கள் ஈர்க்கப்படுகின்றனர். என்ன சொல்கிறான் அவன்?

இன்னர் ஹார்னர் மக்களுக்கு வரி விதிக்க வேண்டும் என்கிறான், அவர்களை எப்போதும் கண்காணிப்பில் வைத்திருக்கக வேண்டும் என்கிறான். இதற்கு அவனுக்கான தனிப்பட்ட காரணமும் உள்ளது, அவன் முன்புஇன்னர் ஹார்னர் நாட்டுப் பெண்ணைக் காதலிக்க, அவள் அவனை விரும்பாமல் தன் நாட்டிலேயே ஒருவனைக் காதலித்து மணக்கிறாள். இது இப்போது வரை ஆறாத ரணமாக ஃபில் மனதில் உள்ளது.

மாபெரும் மக்கள் எழுச்சியான ஃபிரெஞ்சுப் புரட்சியில் ஒரு முக்கிய நபரான மாக்ஸ்மிலியான் ட ரோபெஸ்பியே, முதல் உலகப்போரில் அடைந்த தோல்வியில் ஏற்பட்ட தடைகளால் துவண்டிருந்தஜெர்மானிய மக்களின் மனநிலையை பயன்படுத்தி நாட்டுத் தலைமைக்கு உயர்ந்த ஹிட்லர், அன்னிய ஏகாதிபத்தியத்தில் சிக்கித் துன்புற்ற மக்களின் நம்பிக்கையைப் பயன்படுத்தி நாட்டை ஆள வந்து அதைப் பிணக்காடாக மாற்றிய போல் பாட் ஆகியோரைப் போன்றவர் ஃபில்.

இப்படிப் பல பேரை நாம் வரலாற்றில் பார்த்திருக்கிறோம். ஒரு அசாதாரணச் சூழ்நிலையில் தைரியமாக முடிவெடுக்க முன்வருபவர்கள் இவர்கள். அறிவுள்ளவர்களும், நன்கு சிந்திப்பவர்களும் சொல்லவும் தயங்கும் பல அபத்தமானதும், அற்பத்தனமானதுமான மானுட சமூக விரோதக் கருத்துக்களை உணர்ச்சி வசப்பட்டும், வலுவாகவும், திரும்பத் திரும்பவும் சொல்வதன் மூலமே அவை சரியானவை, நியாயமானவை, தவிர்க்க முடியாதவை என்றெல்லாம் மக்களை நம்ப வைக்கும் திறமை கொண்டவர்கள் இவர்கள். அந்தச் சூழ்நிலையைச் சில நேரம் தங்கள் தனிப்பட்ட விருப்பு, வெறுப்புகளுக்காகவும் பயன்படுத்திக் கொள்வர்.

ரோபெஸ்பியே ஃபிரெஞ்சுப் புரட்சிக்குப் பிறகு நடந்த உள்நாட்டு யுத்தத்தில், பல பயங்கர நிகழ்வுகளை நடத்தினான். பாரம்பரியக் கிருஸ்தவத்துக்கு மாறான ‘அனைத்து வல்லமையும் கொண்ட பரம்பொருளை’ வணங்குவதை முன்னிறுத்திப் பிரச்சாரம் செய்து அதன் வழியே குறையற்ற நல்லொழுக்கத்தை நாடும் சமுதாயத்தைக் கட்டுவதே சிறப்பு என்று கருதிய ரோபஸ்பியே, அந்த முயற்சிக்குத் தலைவனாகத் தன்னை நிறுத்த முயன்றான். ஹிட்லர் பற்றிச் சொல்ல வேண்டியதில்லை, யூதர்கள் மேல் அவனுக்கிருந்த வெறுப்பால், பல நாடுகள் மீது படையெடுத்து அங்கு ஜெர்மன் மேலாட்சியை நிறுவி, லட்சக்கணக்கான யூதர்களைக் கொன்று குவித்தான்.

இவர்கள் அனைவருக்கும் உள்ள ஒற்றுமை அல்லது கண்டிப்பாக இருக்கவேண்டிய ஒரு குணம், எந்த குப்பையையும் கோமேதகமாக நம்பவைக்குமாறு பேசி மக்களை மயக்கி தங்கள் பக்கம் ஈர்ப்பது. இதற்கு ஃபில்லும் விதிவிலக்கல்ல. மறை கழன்ற நிலையில்தான் இத்தகையை ஆசாமிகள் இருக்கிறார்கள் என்று ஸாண்டர்ஸ் பகடி செய்கிறார்.

ஃபில் சாதாரணமாகப் பேசுவதே உளறல் தான், இருந்தும் அவன் மூளை சில நேரம் கழண்டு விழுந்து விடுவது போல் கதையை அமைத்துள்ளார். மூளை மீண்டும் அவன் தலையில் பொருத்தப்படும் வரை அந்நேரங்களில் ஃபில் குரலே மாறுகிறது, அவன் உளறல் இன்னும் மோசமாகிறது ஆனால் என்ன ஆச்சரியம், இப்படிப் பேசுவதை அந்நாட்டு மக்கள் இன்னும் அதிகமாக விரும்புகிறார்கள், அதை அப்படியே ஏற்றும் கொள்கிறார்கள். அத்தகைய ஒரு உளறலைப் படியுங்கள்.

இது தங்கள் மீது விதிக்கப்படும் பல அடக்குமுறைகளை எதிர்க்கும் கால் என்ற இன்னர் ஹார்னர் பிரஜையைக் கொல்லும் முன் ஃபில் பேசுவது. கொல்வதை என்று குறிப்பிடுகிறான் ஃபில். இந்த இடக்கரடக்கல்முக்கியமான ஒன்று, தங்கள் செய்வதை நியாப்படுத்த வல்லரசுகள் பயன்படுத்தும் ஆயுதம் மொழியில் இப்படிப்பட்ட இடக்கரடக்கல் அல்லவா.

மேலோட்டமாகப் பார்த்தால் இவன் சொல்வது சரியோ என்று தோன்றும், அவன் நாட்டு மக்கள் இன்னர் ஹார்னர் குடிமக்களுக்கு இடம் கொடுத்துள்ளது உண்மை தான். ஆனால் அதற்காக அவர்கள் கேட்கும் விலை? இன்னர் ஹார்னர் மக்களின் இயற்கை வளத்தை (அந்த நாட்டில் இருக்கும் ஒரே மரம், ஒரே ஓடை), தன் நாட்டிற்கு கொண்டு செல்வது, அவர்கள் உடைமைகளை, உடைகளைப் பறித்து நிர்வாணமாக வைத்திருப்பது போன்ற முறைகளால் அவர்கள் சுயமரியாதையை அழிப்பது.

அதை அவர்கள் எதிர்த்தால், அவர்களைப் பயங்கரவாதிகளாக முத்திரைகுத்துவது. இப்படி அவனின் வெறியாட்டத்திற்குத் துணையாக, ஜிம்மி, வான்ஸ் என்ற இருவர் உள்ளார்கள். இவர்கள் என்று குறிப்பிடப்படுகின்றனர். இவர்கள் மற்றவர்களால் அதிகம் மதிக்கப்படுவதில்லை, ஃபில் தங்களைப் புகழ்ந்தால் அவனுக்குச் சேவை செய்யத் தயாராக இருப்பவர்கள்.

உங்களுக்கு ஸாண்டர்ஸ் ஒரு அமெரிக்க எழுத்தாளர் என்பது நினைவிருக்கும். அதை வைத்து நோக்கினால், இந்நேரம் ‘அவுட்டர் ஹார்னர்’ அமெரிக்காவையும், ஃபில் புஷ்ஷையும் குறிக்கின்றன என்று தெரிந்திருக்கும். அப்போது? வேறு யார், உலகில் தங்கள் முதன்மை நிலையை இழந்து அமெரிக்காவின் தோழனாக இருப்பதையே கௌரவமாக நினைக்கும் இங்கிலாந்து தான். அவர்கள் தானே அல் இராக்கில் ஆயுதங்கள் உண்மையில் உள்ளதா இல்லையா என்றெல்லாம் கவலைப்படாமல் போருக்கழைத்த அமெரிக்காவின் பின் சென்றவர்கள்.

ஃபில்லின் இந்தச் செயல்களுக்கு அந்த நாட்டின் ஜனாதிபதியின் ஒப்புதல் கிடைக்கிறது. இந்த ஜனாதிபதி தான் நான் முன்பு சொன்ன ஏழு வயிறும், ஐந்து மீசையும் கொண்ட ஆசாமி. கிட்டத்தட்ட சுயஅறிவை முழுதுமாக இழந்த ஆசாமி. இவருக்கு ஆலோசனை கூறுபவர்கள் எப்படி? ஒருவர் முகமே கண்ணாடி தான், அதாவது ஜனாதிபதியை பிரதிபலிப்பதே, அவர் நினைப்பதை, எண்ணுவதை அப்படியே ஒப்புக்கொள்வதே அவர்வே. இன்னொருவருக்கு முகமே வாய் தான், வெறும் பேச்சு தான் அவர் வேலை.

இப்படிப்பட்ட ஆலோசகர்கள் உலகில் இருப்பதால் தானே பல பேராபத்துகள் நிகழ்கின்றன? போகப் போக ஃபில் ஒரு சர்வாதிகாரி போல் நடந்து கொள்கிறான், அவனைப் பின்பற்றுபவர்களிடமிருந்து எந்த வித எதிர்க் கருத்தையும் அவன் சகிப்பதில்லை. அவன் உத்திரவிடும் ஆணைகளில் , கண்ணை மூடிக்கொண்டு அனைவரும் கையெழுத்திட வேண்டுமென்று எதிர்பார்க்கிறான். அப்படிச் செய்யாதவர்களை, சந்தேகப் படுகிறான். ஒரு கட்டத்தில் ஜனாதிபதியைப் பதவியில் இருந்து நீக்கித் தானே ஜனாதிபதி ஆகிறான்.

ஆலோசர்கள்? அவர்களுக்கென்ன, அவர்களுக்குத் தேவை ஒத்து ஊதுவதற்கேற்றபடி ஜனாதிபதி பதவியில் ஒரு ஆசாமி, எனவே அவர்களும் ஃபில் பக்கம் சாய்கிறார்கள். இந்த நிகழ்வுகள் அனைத்தும், நாம் வரலாற்றில் படித்ததும், இப்போதும் பார்த்துக்கொண்டிருப்பதும் தான். பல கட்டங்களில், பல நாடுகளில், பல விதமாக நடப்பவைதான். இன்று ஊடகங்கள் பற்றிப் பேசாமல், பொது மக்களின் மத்தியில் ஒரு கருத்து எப்படி பரப்பபடுகிறது என்று புரிந்து கொள்ள முடியுமா? ஸாண்டர்ஸ் ஊடகங்களையும் விட்டு வைக்க வில்லை. முதலில் அவை கொடுக்கும் தலைப்பு செய்திகள் இவ்வாறு உள்ளன.

செய்திகள் வெறும் காட்டுக்கத்தல் என்பதால் தான் அவை இலேயே இந்த நூலில் அச்சடிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளன. என ஆரம்பித்து என்று ஊடகங்கள் வந்தடைந்திருக்கும் இடமே “இரவில் வானம் இருளாக உள்ளது” என்பது போன்ற தலைப்பு செய்திகள்தாமே?

ஊடகவியலாளர்கள் எப்படிச் சித்திரிக்கப்படுகிறார்கள்? அவர்களுடைய கழுத்துப்பட்டையில் ஒலிபெருக்கி பொருத்தப்பட்டுள்ளது (தொண்டை கிழியக் கத்த வேண்டாமா), அது மட்டுமல்ல அவர்களின் பின்புறத்திலும் இயல்பாகப் பேச வழி உள்ளது. ஒரு ஊடக ஆசாமி சொல்வது (கத்துவது?) என்னவென்றால். ஒரு வேளை ஸாண்டர்ஸ் அர்நாப் கோஸ்வாமியைப் பார்த்திருப்பாரோ, யார் கண்டது அர்னாப் தினம் தினம் கத்துவது (அல்லது கேள்வி கேட்பது) அமெரிக்காவிலும் கேட்டிருக்கலாம்.

இந்த ஊடகங்களும் ஃபில் பின்னால் அணி திரள்கின்றன. அவர்களும் எத்தனை நாள் தான் பூச்சிகள் பற்றியும், சாக்கடைகள் பற்றியும் பேசுவார்கள். யுத்தம் இவற்றை விடச் சுவாரஸ்யமானது தானே. ஃபில்லின் அராஜகம் எல்லை மீறிப் போக, இறுதியில் இன்னொரு அண்டை நாடான தலையீட்டினாலும், ஒரு அமானுஷ்ய சக்தியினாலும் நிலைமை ஒரு கட்டுக்குள் வருகிறது. ஃபில்லின் கொடுங்கோல் ஆட்சி ஒரு முடிவுக்கு வருகிறது, அதுவும் ஒரு பகடியாகத்தான் தான் முடிகிறது.

அவன் மூளை காணமல் போய் விட, அதைக் கொஞ்ச நேரம் அவன் சாதகமாக ஆக்கினாலும், நேரம் ஆக ஆக, மூளையில்லாமல் அவன் உளறல் ஒரு உச்சத்தை அடைந்து, மூளை இல்லாததை அவனே தாங்க முடியாமல் நினைவற்று வீழ்கிறான் .எல்லாச் சர்வாதிகாரிகளும் இதே நிலையை தான் அடைய வேண்டும், முற்றிலும் மூளையை இழக்கும் போது தான் முற்றிலும் தறி கேட்டு, அவர்கள் வீழ்ச்சி நேர்கிறது. அவர்களும் கர்வத்தில், தாங்கள் தங்கள் மூளையை முற்றிலுமாக இழந்து வருகிறோம் என்பதை உணர்வதில்லை.

ஆலோசகர்கள் பழைய ஜனாதிபதியைத் தேடிச் செல்கிறார்கள், வேறென்ன செய்ய முடியும் அவர்களால். ஊடகங்களும் அயர்வதில்லை. அவர்களுக்கு எந்த செய்தியும் நல்ல செய்தி தான் (அவர்கள் வியாபாரத்தைப் பொறுத்த வரை), எனவே அவர்கள் கத்துவது இப்படி மாறுகிறது அந்த அமானுஷ்ய சக்தி என்று கூறி இரு நாடுகளையும் இணைத்து “நியூ ஹார்னர்” என்ற, பழைய இரு நாடுகளிலிருந்த பேரைக்கொண்ட ஒரு புது நாட்டை உருவாக்குகிறது. ஃபில் ஒரு சிலையாக மாற்றப்படுகிறான்.

மக்கள் மேலோட்டமாக பார்க்கும் போது ஒற்றுமையாக இருக்கிறார்கள், ஃபில்லின் சிலை புதர்களால் சூழப்படுகிறது, மக்கள் அவனைப் பற்றி மறந்து விட்டாற் போல் இருந்தாலும் லியோனா என்பவள் மட்டும் அவ்வப்போது அங்கு சென்று சிலையைப் பார்த்தபடி இருக்கிறாள். இத்துடன் இந்த குறுநாவல் முடிகிறது, ஆனால் நடைமுறையில்?

இந்தக் குறுநாவலை அமெரிக்காவின் வல்லாதிக்கப் போக்கை விமர்சிக்கும் நாவலாகப் பார்ப்பது எளிது, அதைத் தொடர்ந்து சென்றால் நாம் இந்த குறுநாவல் சொல்ல வரும் முக்கியமான விஷயங்களைத் தவற விடுவோம் அவை நாம் அனைவரும் நினைவில் கொள்ளவேண்டியவை. ஒன்று, நம்மிடையே பரவலாக உள்ள, ஒரு மீட்பரை எதிர்நோக்கி இருக்கும் மனப்பான்மை.

குறிப்பாகச் சில அசாதாரணச் சூழல்களில், யாராவது பொறுப்பை ஏற்றுக்கொள்ள முன்வந்தால், அவரையே நாம் மீட்பராக உருவகப்படுத்தி ஆட்டு மந்தை போல் அவர் பின் செல்வது. நம்மால் தலைமையேற்று முன்னடத்த முடியாமல் இருக்கலாம், அதற்காக அப்படிச் செய்ய முன்வருபவரை அப்படியே ஏற்றுக்கொள்ளவேண்டும் என்பதில்லையே. (அதற்காக அவர்களை ஒட்டுமொத்தமாக எள்ளி நகையாடவும் வேண்டாம்). அனைத்து சர்வாதிகாரிகளின் ஏற்றத்திற்கு, மக்கள் கேள்வி கேட்காமல் இருக்கும் தன்மையே அடிப்படைக் காரணி.

நாம் முக்கியமாக நினைவில் கொள்ள வேண்டிய இன்னொன்று என்னவென்றால், மானுட விரோதப் போக்கு என்பது எப்போதும் முழுமையாக அழிவதில்லை. அது வேறு, வேறு ரூபங்களில், பல வண்ண முகமூடிகள் அணிந்து, புதிய கொள்கைகளை மேலங்கியாகக் கொண்டு வரலாம், அல்லது ஒரு நீண்ட உறக்கத்தில் கூட இருந்து, எப்போது வேண்டுமானாலும் உயிர்த்து எழலாம். அதனால் தான் வரலாற்றின் அனைத்து காலகட்டங்களிலும் பல ஃபில்கள் தோன்றி வந்திருக்கின்றனர்.

இந்தக் குறுநாவலின் இறுதியில் கூட லியோனா ஃபில்லின் சிலையை சென்று பார்ப்பது மானுட விரோதப் போக்கு முற்றிலும் அணையவில்லை, ஒரு சிறு கொதிப்பு இன்னும் உள்ளது என்பதைக் குறிக்கிறது. புதிய நாட்டில், லியோனா மற்றும் சாலி போன்ற சிலர் பந்து போல் உருண்டையாகவும், கில் போன்ற சிலர் நீண்டும் உள்ளனர். பேதத்தின் முதல் விதை இதிலேயே தூவப்படுகிறது, அதுவும் புதிய நாடு உருவான உடனேயே. அந்த பேதம் தான் ஏனென்றே புரியாமல் லியோனாவை ஃபில் சிலையை நோக்கி செலுத்துகிறது. இந்த சிறு கங்கு பெரும்தீ க்கொழுந்தாகும் நாள் வெகு தூரத்தில் இல்லை.

எனவே ஒரு யுடோபியாவைக் கற்பிதம் செய்வதை விட, நாம் இத்தகைய மானுட விரோத செயல்பாடுகள் குறித்து விழிப்பாக இருப்பதே அவசியம். ஏனென்றால் யுடோபியா என்பது சாத்தியமற்றது, ஆனால் விழிப்புடன் இருப்பது நம் கையில் உள்ளது. இது அவநம்பிக்கை அல்ல,யதார்த்தம்.

பி.கு: நுகர்வுக் கலாச்சாரம் பெருகியுள்ள, சகிப்புத்தன்மை மிகவும் குறைந்து வருகிற இன்றைய சூழலில் ஸாண்டர்ஸின் எழுத்துக்கள் கண்டிப்பாக அதிகம் படிக்கப்பட்டு, அது குறித்து உரையாடல்கள்ந டத்தப்படவேண்டியிருக்கிறது. ஸாண்டர்ஸ் உருவாக்குகிற உலகிற்கும், நம் உலகிற்கும் தூரம் அதிகம் இல்லை. அவர் உலகின் பல அம்சங்கள் ஏற்கனவே நம் உலகில் உள்ளதைச் சார்ந்தே, அதை இன்னும் சற்றே அதீதமாக மாற்றி அமைக்கப்பட்டுள்ளன. அந்த அதீதமும் இன்னும் சில காலத்தில் நம் உலகின் இயல்பாகலாம். நாம் விரைவாக அதை நோக்கித்தான் சென்று கொண்டிருக்கிறோம்.

இந்தக் குறுநாவல் ” ஸாண்டர்ஸ் எழுதிய என்ற அபாரமான சிறுகதை தொகுப்புடன் ஒரே புத்தகமாக கிடைக்கிறது. இந்த புத்தகம் அவர் எழுத்துக்களில் மிக முக்கியமானது எனலாம்

A cartoon depiction of our amazing human waterslide.

Next up we have the human hamster ball! We make our human hamster balls out of three different products human hamster balls out of three different kinds of materials. The materials vary in quality and price, which will be outlined below.

Highest quality: The first material is TPU polyether. It is environmentally safe, tasteless, tough, resistant to hydrolysis, fading, and weather. It is excellent for use in water products, but the price of TPU polyester products is slightly higher than for the other materials because it is a higher quality material.

Second highest quality: The second material is Composite TPU, also known as False TPU. It is made up of 30% TPU polyether and 70% PVC. The price is lower than TPU, but like PVC is has a plastic smell similar to PVC which may be unhealthy to humans. It is also not transparent, and like PVC, the product has a short life expectancy.

Third highest quality. The third material is PVC. Although this product is low-priced, it has a plastic taste and smell which some think is unhealthy for humans, and when the weather is cold, it material cracks easily, resulting in a short lifespan for the product.

All of these products are available wholesale for retailers. In addition, anyone can order any of our products off our website if you wish to have the product shipped from China.

The Race of the Paleo-Indians of the Americas

Don: I heard that the Tierra del Fuego Amerinds were considered Paleo-Indians. ‘Luzia’ was found only to be 10,000 yrs. old and not Australoid, proven by a number of different institutions. Many scientists that work in anthropology all agree she is Paleo-Indian.

Luzia is 12,500 years old.

Your statement is a tautology because Paleo-Indians = Australoids, racially speaking, by skulls. They are probably looking at genes, and yes, on genes, they are Indians. It’s just that the Indians if you go that far back Indians look like Australoids, as did the NE Asian populations from which they derived. See for instance the Australoid Ainu, basically depigmented Veddoids originally from Thailand 16,000 YBP, then later to the Australoid Jomon 13,000 YBP, who also occupied Japan. These were and are very robust people. The Ainu are NE Asian by genes and Australoid by skulls.

India Is the Most Beautiful and Terrible Place on Earth

Excellent report from India from the comments:

This blog is hilarious! Especially the bans. I’m a White American who has traveled to India three times, twice by choice, once for business. I have told people I thought India was the most beautiful and most terrible place on Earth.

Delhi is a horrifying shithole alright and is full of assholes. The taxi people will try to fuck you with a bunch of stupid scam shit right out of the airport. However, I went there almost 15 years apart on two trips, and the second time I went, it was much improved. Roads were being built, as was a subway (metro).

Twice in Delhi my wife was molested, once in a tuktuk with me, and once standing in a crowd. In both cases, someone grabbed her ass from behind. After a week, I was so disgusted and angry at the Indian men who would walk up to her, drooling, while I was accompanying her, tested all my strength of cultural tolerance. Fortunately we left Delhi before I kicked someone’s ass. I should add that my wife is 6′ and totally fucking hot but was dressed more or less like a dirty hiker.

Dharamsala is not a shithole. I did find occasional open sewer canals, but the people were much nicer, the city was generally cleaner, and most of the escaped Tibetans I met were very friendly.

Bihar is disgusting. I got dumped in Patna with my wife because of a bus strike in Nepal while we were trying to travel back from Chitwan to Varanasi, so we were rerouted there. I have seen the throat of Hell, and it is the Nepal/India border town of Raxaul. Beyond Bosch, Goya, Milton, etc.

Four bandits/dacoits boarded our bus late at night during a stop. I stood up in the back of the bus waving a Kukhri I bought in Kathmandu (very nice place in 1999, much better overall than India) and they got off at the next stop.

I believe I encountered a guardian angel in downtown Patna, who suddenly appeared on the street (it was the middle of the night) and told us we had to get off the streets immediately and take refuge in the train station. The floor there was covered with people sleeping on newspapers in filth and urine, but from there, we spotted the last open hotel in the place. After I checked in there around 3 AM, people immediately came knocking on the door after I had settled in. I pushed the chest of drawers in front of the door, and we went to sleep. In the morning we were awakened by knocking again, so I went to the door, and it was a member of the hotel staff who brought us tea and toast for breakfast, which tasted really fucking amazing at that moment.

Rajasthan is really nice. Beautiful palaces, lovely colors, friendly people. The occasional pool of human excreta, garbage and the fucking free-roaming cows did appear but not enough to feel pervasive. Jaipur is a mad crunch of people, but we stayed in a former palace for nothing, and it was great.

Khajuraho was fantastic. I loved Gwalior as well. On the road south to Orchha, we spotted a beautiful, empty palace of sorts called, I think, Dhuttia or Datia. We got out – no attendant or anything. It was UNESCO-quality in architecture. Climbed to the top of that, and inside we were approached by a security guard who was friendly, and we wanted to know why there was nobody there.

He said, “We don’t let Indians in here. They would destroy the place.”

Never forgot that; made me quite sad.

Goa is shit. Filthy, overpriced, non-stop haranguing from tout fucks. Disgusting beaches, filthy ocean, though there is infrastructure and decent roads in some places, and the Portuguese historical sites are interesting.

So I did the range from cheap hippie-backpacker experience in 1999 to five-star “bubble” traveling (and sometimes nomadic wandering). I would go back, as I would like to see the Ajanta and Ellora Caves, Kerala, and Gujarat.

I did bathe in the Ganges near Varanasi in 1999 because I was on some sort of spiritual journey thing right after my father died. I didn’t get sick, though I got sick other places in India (but that is the same as in many African countries, Egypt, Portugal, etc., and I got a terrible case of dysentery in London, though that was from eating samosas at an Indian food stand.)

The wife molestation thing I have never encountered anywhere else. The whole Eve-teasing thing and its mentality has to fucking stop. As does of course the raping, though that’s certainly not unique to India.

Now that said, I have been to 96 countries, including several in Africa. The poverty, at least demonstrated by total squalor, is worse in India. Where I have traveled, I have found assholes and wonderful people and have not usually been able to pin them down by religion. Except for Buddhists. Everywhere I have encountered Buddhists, everything’s been cool. I was surprised at how many Ethiopian people are assholes and at how endemic prostitution is there. The most assholes I have encountered were in Cambodia. But I can understand why.

So overall, I would tell people what I said at the beginning of this post: India is the most beautiful and the most terrible place at the same time. They should not be sending fucking satellites and rockets into space and spending gazillions on developing their own fighter jets which will never compete with the USA’s before taking care of basics like infrastructure, sanitation, health, and poverty. Costa Rica, for instance, has no military. They’ve spent the money on education and have achieved 95% literacy.

Also, I have made several acquaintances who I wanted to be friends with here in the US. Things went great until I told them I had been to India a couple of times. They immediately cut off all contact and wouldn’t engage with me ever again.

But if you get a chance to go to India, go! Just be prepared, and get your shots.
