Dystopian COVID Tyranny in Quebec

A couple of days ago I posted a video from Montreal translated by Oz-Rita about a man who was handled roughly by police for violating COVID-19 restrictions. Rita speaks Parisian French, so she was unable to make out much of the dialect in that clip.

Since then the same clip has been retranslated by a Quebecer who could understand everything that was said. The dialect being spoken is called Joual, which (according to Wikipedia) is an accepted name for the linguistic features of basilectal Quebec French associated with the French-speaking working class in Montreal. Joual is stigmatized by some people and celebrated by others.

So Here There Be Dragons!

by Seneca III

Part IIIB — Synthetic evolution continued

4. Electro-neural prosthesis (Neuroprosthetics) and Artificial Intelligence

Electro-neural prosthesis is the biomedical engineering development of devices that can substitute a motor, sensory or cognitive modality that might have been damaged as a result of an injury or disease. For example, cochlear implants substitute the functions performed by the eardrum and stapes while simulating the frequency analysis performed in the cochlea. A microphone on an external unit gathers the sound and processes it; the processed signal is then transferred to an implanted unit that stimulates the auditory nerve through a microelectrode array. Through the replacement or augmentation of damaged senses, these localised devices/procedures could be developed into a brain-computer interface, a generalised all-body system which connects the brain to a computer rather than being a device replacing missing biological functions such as motor, sensory or cognitive modality that might have been damaged as a result of an injury or a disease.

These devices are also used in animal experiments. By wirelessly monitoring the brain’s electrical signals sent out by electrodes implanted in the subject’s brain, the subject can be studied without the device affecting the results. Neural implants are designed to be as small as possible in order to be minimally invasive, particularly in areas surrounding the brain, eyes or cochlea. They typically communicate with their prosthetic counterparts wirelessly. Additionally, power is currently received through wireless power transmission through the skin. The tissue surrounding the implant is usually highly sensitive to temperature rise, meaning that power consumption must be minimal in order to prevent tissue damage.

However, assuming that the frequency requirements of a micro miniature quantum computer would be minimal, say in the range from 1 Hertz up to as much as 100 Hz we should note that these brain wave frequencies are clustered into four basic categories associated with different mental functions…

  • Delta, from 1 Hz to 4 Hz, is associated with sleep.
  • Theta, from 4 Hz to 8 Hz, is associated with hypnagogic and hypnopompic states (states between sleep and wakefulness).
  • Alpha, from 8 Hz to 13 Hz, is associated with a deeply relaxed, yet waking state.
  • Beta, from 13 Hz to 40 Hz, is the frequency range in which we operate in our day-to-day waking state.

…and if one or more quantum devices were implanted in a human brain, say in the frontal lobe which is responsible for thinking, planning, memory and judgment, the parietal lobe which is responsible for bodily sensations and touch, in the temporal lobe which is responsible for hearing and language, and the occipital lobe which is responsible for vision, would not such a being be in possession of an internal, extremely fast-response and data-rich version of the Baron’s oft mentioned ‘auxiliary brain’?[1]

The human brain is a wondrous marriage of electricity and chemistry. Neurons are microscopic power sources that build up an electrical charge by chemical means (like a battery), then briefly reverse the voltage over and over again. In this way, electrical potentials can shoot along the neuron’s major extension — the axon — and be translated into chemicals that cross the synapse, the tiny gap between neurons, to produce electrical potentials in the receiving dendrites of the next neuron. In that neuron, the process can begin again, so that the electrical potential can keep moving. Neurons fire these action potentials in unison to accomplish whatever task the brain is undertaking. The number of times a cell builds up a charge and reverses it determines the frequency of the cortical rhythms in the brain. The cortical rhythm is the sum of the brain’s action and dendrite potentials specific to parts of the brain, and specific neurons can be recognized for their involvement in forming memories. The main parts of the brain involved with memory are the amygdala, the hippocampus, the cerebellum and the prefrontal cortex.

Artificial intelligence is a recent construct, and it has not evolved over eons as did human intelligence but was manufactured in the wink of a cosmic eye. The definition of artificial is “Made or produced by human beings rather than occurring naturally, especially as a copy of something natural.” i.e. synthetic.

‘Human intelligence’ is defined as the mental quality that consists of the abilities to learn from experience, adapt to new situations, understand and handle abstract concepts, and use knowledge to manipulate one’s environment. It is worth noting that according to Moravec’s paradox the observation by artificial intelligence and robotics researchers that, contrary to traditional assumptions, reasoning requires very little computation, but sensorimotor skills require enormous computational resource and can be extended to many forms of social intelligence.

Anti-Lockdown Protest in Prague

Thousands of protesters gathered in the Czech capital last Sunday to protest the government’s COVID-19 mitigation measures. Former President Vaclav Klaus was a featured speaker at the event.

The video below shows excerpts from the demonstration. Many thanks to Xanthippa for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling. Note: This clip has been subtitled in German, but the English subtitles were translated from the original Czech:

Below are excerpts from a Remix News article about the demonstration in Prague (hat tip Reader from Chicago):

There is No Miracle Vaccine, Says Former Czech President Klaus at Protest Against COVID-19 Measures

On Sunday, people, including former Czech President Vaclav Klaus, met at Prague’s Old Town Square to protest against coronavirus measures introduced by the government. Police estimated that there were about 2,500 to 3,000 people. Many of them did not wear face masks, nor did they comply with the physical distancing rules. However, police stated that the rally was peaceful.

The demonstration called Open Czechia was convened by the initiative that strives for the opening of restaurants. The crowd chanted that the government should resign. Participants of the protest held Czech flags and banners with slogans “Stop the COVID tyranny. Let’s stop totalitarianism in the name of COVID!”, “We are not sheep”, “Back to school on Monday!” and “Stop the Coronaterror”.

The Coronazis Are Still At It

Hellequin GB has translated three more articles from German sites with the latest news on the Wuhan Coronavirus.

The first article, from JournalistenWatch, talks about the downstream societal effects of unreliable coronavirus tests:

Do dubious cheap rapid tests decide about life and death in homes?

The majority of the coronavirus rapid tests in Germany are apparently not independently tested, let alone certified neutrally — and therefore not at all practical. And that even though human lives depend directly on it. After all, the tests are known to be used by employees or visitors to retirement and nursing homes and sometimes also clinics.

An absurdity.

Anyone wondering how something like this is possible in a country where every toad tunnel and every gutter has to be officially approved and tested by TÜV [Technischer Überwachungsverein, independent service companies that certify systems and facilities] will be left just as perplexed as with the countless other questions about this pandemic of madness — which has shown one thing above all: The populists were not only right, they always understated when they railed about the clueless dilettantes ruling this country.

In its current issue, Spiegel reports that a large portion of the rapid tests for Sars-CoV-2 offered in Germany have not yet been tested neutrally and impartially. Although more than 300 such tests are carried out at the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medicinal Products (BfArM), just 25 tests were independently checked by the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI). To get on the BfArM list, manufacturers are allowed to certify their products themselves without external controls. If a test is to be on the PEI list, it must be registered for evaluation. However, only a comparatively few providers do this.

Problematic situation complained about

Disturbing: Five utilized tests have already failed — they are also no longer on the list, all failed providers are in appeal proceedings. “We see the current situation as very problematic,” said the head of clinical tropical medicine at Heidelberg University, Claudia Denkinger. “The current approach means that bad tests may come onto the market and people will lose confidence as a result.”

Since a positive antigen rapid test is usually the reason for a subsequent PCR corona test, an unknown, but not inconsiderable number of the randomly performed 1.2 to 1.3 million tests weekly are fed from this “suspicious source”. And since the PCR tests are only of limited informative value, at least some of the high “incidence values” are rooted in the often false positive rapid antigen tests.

From JournalistenWatch, an article about a public health expert who wants to destroy street art that criticizes the governments COVID policies:

Why?

I’m to old to engage in the kind of kinetic action that lies ahead, even if I had the requisite skill set, which I don’t. My only skills involve writing, editing, and propagating information. Which is what I am doing here with this essay from Western Rifle Shooters Association. Concerned American respectfully requests that this piece be disseminated as widely as possible, so please pass it on.

Why?

It wasn’t when the US Army attacked the “Bonus Army”, which was peacefully assembled in DC in 1932 seeking early payment of their WWI service bonds.

It wasn’t during the postwar era, when an activist Supreme Court abolished private property rights in the name of “equality”.

It wasn’t when, via the release of the Pentagon Papers in 1971, the American people learned that the entire war in Vietnam had been founded on lies — the biggest of which was that the US military, under the geopolitical and operational constraints they faced, could ever have won the war.

It wasn’t over the torrent of governmental power abuses that ensued over the next 20 years, nor was it when the Ruby Ridge and Waco atrocities happened.

It wasn’t over the establishment of a permanent, unconstitutional omnisurveillance state before and especially after 9/11.

It wasn’t over the nearly 20 years of US military foreign entanglements that took a generation of brave young men and women and sent them home in boxes, broken in mind and/or body, or permanently disillusioned about their country and their leaders.

It wasn’t even over the past five years of lies, deceit, and outright treasonous collaboration with enemy actors to drag America and its people from the smoldering remains of its constitutional past into the gulag of global totalitarianism.

But when, between November 3rd and January 6th, the globalist elites stole both a Presidential election and two Senatorial elections to deliver complete control of all branches and levels of American governance into the hands of the techno-tyrannical Kommissars, it was finally time for resistance.

Finally.

Today, the spokesbots of the global tyranny superstructure are howling for the heads of not only President Trump and his (few) loyalists, but also the heads of anyone who supports him.

The international dictators-in-the-making have declared war, by both the Big Steal itself and the subsequent refusal to allow independent inquiry into those elections, on the traditional American people and their progeny.

So be it.

We will see how the soft-palmed Stalin wannabes deal with a permanently-outraged population of real-world makers (and breakers).

The anti-Trump United States government parasites have eternally destroyed their own legitimacy.

Having sown the wind, they will now reap the whirlwind.

Godspeed to all traditional Americans.

May God empower each with courage, discernment, and zeal.

In the absence of orders to the contrary, find something Communist and destroy it.

Lather, rinse, and repeat.

Oh, the Humanity!

This morning I was rummaging through a kitchen cabinet and came across the following product, left over from the days when Dymphna was mistress of the kitchen:

It took me aback. Could it be possible that this item is actually on sale in America? Wouldn’t it cause incidents of mass triggering in supermarket aisles?

“Just Whites” is marketed as being wholesome and healthy — all natural, cholesterol free, fat free, sugar free, etc. But I am not so easily fooled. Everyone knows that Whiteness = Toxicity.

It don’t know how old the can is. Some of Dymphna’s foodstuffs are decades old, especially those on the spice shelves. This one is new enough to have a barcode, but old enough not to have a QR code.

It made me curious, so I did a quick search online. It’s listed on Amazon, but is “currently unavailable”. A poster on a food-related forum back in 2015 complained that Just Whites, one of her favorite products, was no longer being sold. So maybe the management at Deb El went through diversity training, wised up, and got Woke.

By the way: “Deb El” sounds suspiciously Hebraic, but it turns out to be a composite of the names of the founders, Elliot Gibber and his wife Debbie. Nevertheless, Gibber is probably a Jewish name, so I reckon this supposedly innocuous product is in fact a Jewish conspiracy to trigger people of color.

Don’t be taken in. It’s time to stand tall and resist the Whiteness!

So Here There Be Dragons! (Part IIIA)

The essay below is the third in a series by our English correspondent Seneca III. Previously: Part 1., Part 2.

So Here There Be Dragons!

by Seneca III

Part IIIA — Synthetic evolution?

Introduction: This monograph and the one that follows look at recent and potential developments in the sphere of the hard sciences. There are six sections, Medicine, genetic & bio-molecular engineering, Quantum physics and electro-neural prosthesis [Part IIIA], and Artificial intelligence, Power generation and transmission and Astronautics and spaceflight technology [Part IIIB]. Whether these developments, individually or collectively, can be defined as synthetic or just accelerated natural progression I leave to the reader to decide.

1. Medicine

The full history of medicine is a long, fascinating and far too large subject to do justice to here. It has been a slow haul until recently, but now appears to be accelerating, so I will leave it to individual readers to pursue the past if they wish. Instead, I will bring into quick focus relatively recent developments.

  • 1954. First successful kidney transplant performed.
  • 1966. First simultaneous kidney/pancreas transplant performed.
  • 1967. First successful human heart transplant and the first successful liver transplant performed.
  • 1968. First successful isolated pancreas transplant performed.
  • 1981. First successful heart-lung transplant performed…
  • …and so on until…
  • 1998. First successful adult-to-adult living donor liver transplant performed.[1]

Physicians, surgeons, microbiologists, biochemists and pharmacologists, to mention but a few, have continued to progress our knowledge and skills during and since that era and these include drugs, vaccines, bone marrow replacement (from a closely related donor), microsurgery, laser surgery & precise neurosurgery and many others. They have together extended average human life expectancy, and researchers are now on the threshold of extending that expectancy even further.

A medical researcher at Harvard Medical School, David Sinclair, has been looking deep into cellular structure and trying to determine if the biological clocks in cells can be turned back and reset, and his recent experiments on the eyes of mice suggest it might be possible to reverse aging. Follow the link for the full 6-minute video listed in the notes.[2].

If this does prove possible in humans it would not necessarily be restricted to post-natal onset blindness occurring through either natural degradation as a result of aging or by physical damage. If this process turns out to be viable it could be further extended such that it might also be possible to use this technique to initiate the regrowth/repair of diseased or malfunctioning human organs and damaged/missing extremities such as fingers, hands, arms and legs.

2. Genetic and bio-molecular engineering

The potential for both of these practices, nuclear (RNA & DNA manipulation) and, say, in proteins and their constituent amino acids, is enormous. Serious advances in genetic engineering have already been made in the case of GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) and GMMOs (Genetically Modified Micro Organisms) in both the animal and plant kingdoms.

Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is a polymeric molecule essential in various biological roles in coding, decoding, regulation and expression of genes. RNA and DNA are nucleic acids.

Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is a linear molecule composed of four types of smaller molecules called ribonucleotide bases: adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G), and uracil (U). DNA is made of chemical building blocks called nucleotides. These building blocks are made of three parts: a phosphate group, a sugar group and one of four types of nitrogen bases. To form a strand of DNA, nucleotides are linked into chains, with the phosphate and sugar groups alternating.

Proteins are macromolecules formed by amino acids, and are polymers of structural units. They are large, complex molecules that play many critical roles in the body. They do most of the work in cells and are required for the structure, function, and regulation of the body’s tissues and organs.

This is a ferritin, an iron storage protein that makes iron available for critical cellular processes while protecting lipids, DNA, and other proteins from the potentially toxic effects of iron…

…and this is a piezo protein that cells use to sense touch.

Amino acids are small organic molecules that consist of an alpha (central) carbon atom linked to an amino group, a carboxyl group, a hydrogen atom, and a variable component called a side chain, A total of 20 different amino acids exist in proteins and hundreds to thousands of these amino acids are attached to each other in long chains to form a protein.

Furthermore, we are now able to observe atoms within molecules within cells, including in human cells. Writing in Nature, Yip and Nakane[3] report the sharpest images yet obtained by using a method termed single-particle cryo-EM (sub-zero Electron Microscopy), enabling the location of individual atoms in a protein to be determined for the first time. Breakthroughs reported by other groups have also produced notable improvements in the resolution of cryo-EM images. Ultimately, these developments will help researchers gain a better understanding, at unprecedented resolution, of how proteins work in health and disease, with the potential to aid the design of better therapeutics and perhaps even humans.

1848 And All That

Some of my friends sit around every evening
And they worry about the times ahead,
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference
And the promise of an early bed.

— Elvis Costello, from “Radio, Radio”

January 6 was a sobering moment. For many of us it was not unexpected, but it was sobering nonetheless.

We have finally reached the End of the Republic. The results of future elections will lie within parameters established by the Powers That Be. There will be no more successful “dark horse” candidates; the system has been rigged to prevent them.

On a related note, Sundance at Conservative Tree House has joined the dreamers at Power Line, although his desperate optimism takes a somewhat different tack: he proposes the founding of a new political party led by Donald Trump, which would siphon off most Republican voters, as well as a big chunk of Democrats and independents.

It’s a nice idea, and it might have worked before the widespread adoption of Dominion voting machines. But after 2020, how does such a party go about actually winning an election? The machinery to prevent that possibility is already in place. Nobody can get elected without the approval of the Deep State. Which means it will be the UniParty — Democrats plus safe (neutered) Republicans — from here on out.

We have unfortunately entered the era of TINVOWOOT: There is no voting our way out of this. We’ve used up three out of our four boxes — soap, ballot, and jury — and there’s only one left.

There has been a cavalcade of “conservatives” eager to denounce Donald Trump and the angry crowd at the Capitol. Their general theme is that “violence solves nothing.” How easily they have forgotten the means by which the Patriots of 1776 threw off the yoke of King George III and established a constitutional republic! If these modern-day talking heads had their way, we’d still be sending politely-worded lists of grievances to the queen and her ministers.

Meanwhile the Left and the media (but I repeat myself) have characterized Wednesday’s events as an “insurrection”. Well… Except for the cops, everybody at the Capitol that day was unarmed. How would our esteemed progressive brethren describe a real insurrection if one ever broke out?

Given the level of anger on the patriotic Right, some sort of future kinetic action is a distinct possibility. Whether we’re heading into a full-fledged Boogaloo or not is an open question. A shrewd, charismatic leader would seem a prerequisite for that to happen, and now that Donald Trump has abdicated the position, there’s no one else on the horizon who fits the description. For all I know, this simmering political cauldron may yet cool down and accept the New Normal that has been prepared for it.

Or maybe not. It’s still early days, so it’s hard to tell.

Regardless of how kinetic things get, what seems likely is a concerted effort to crack down on dissent. Up until now the Left has relied on the private sector — Big Tech, social media companies, and major employers — to suppress doubleplus ungood opinions held by deplorable citizens. We can expect that praxis to change now that the Woke brigades control the entire apparatus of state, especially given the public statements from their numerous spokesbeings about the need to silence us.

The past two months have proved that the Constitution is a worthless scrap of paper. Nothing remains to stop the permanent government from passing whatever laws it deems necessary to suppress “misinformation”, “intolerance”, “extremism”, “hate speech”, “white supremacy”, and all the other terms used to describe publicly expressed thoughts that run counter to the Narrative.

I’ve never used social media, and I have no employer, so up until now the storm has passed me by. When the Harris administration is fully ripened, however, I expect the government to enact new laws or regulations requiring ISPs to close down independent “hate sites” like this one. When that happens, the torches will be extinguished here at the Gates, and I will be out of business.

Depending on how frisky things get, the dénouement could happen sooner, or it could happen later. But that time will eventually come. The darkness will flow out of Mordor and cover everything, and the armies of orcs will march against us.

More Frothing Madness From the Coronareich

Hellequin GB has translated three new articles from PolitikStube about the latest COVID insanity in Germany. Whenever I contemplate the hellish situation in the USA right now, all I have to do is look at Germany to remind myself how much worse things could actually get.

Article #1: And so it begins… No Jab, No Work, No Pay

Care facility: Those who do not get vaccinated will be thrown out

Michael Knobel, home manager and authorized signatory for the care facility of Clus gGmbH, is taking tough action. Any employee who dares to decide for himself whether he has a vaccine injected into his body will simply be thrown out.

“The vaccination is voluntary, but I would like to inform you that the employer generally has the right to exempt employees from work who refuse to be vaccinated. In this case, no further remuneration is paid, this also applies to social security,” it says in an letter to employees.

This claim knocks the bottom out of the barrel. The employees will simply be blackmailed into getting the vaccine.

Article #2: Complete shutdown of the economy proposed

Translator’s comment: “I wonder if he plans to lock people into individual rooms in their own homes, or will he empty the jails to make room for those ‘disgusting’ people who manage to get infected with Corona?”

Leftist Ramelow wants to drive the whole economy into ruin with a complete lockdown

The Thuringian Prime Minister Bodo Ramelow calls for the economy in Germany to be locked down. “We just have to take a complete break now,” he tells MDR Aktuell. “I don’t see any alternatives. The mistake we made across Germany was that we didn’t use December to actually put the general economy on a break.”

So far, restaurateurs, retailers, cultural workers and children have borne the burden of the lockdown. The left-wing politician added that infections with the coronavirus are particularly common in private life, where trust is greatest. He had misjudged this risk factor.

Article #3: No COVID test, no deportation

The Excrement Impacts the Circulation Device

After I got home from the doctor’s office I spent a long time looking at various news sources reporting on what happened in Washington D.C. today. As you all know by now, after the President’s speech a group of protesters reportedly “breached” the entrances to the Capitol and occupied various parts of the building. A young woman who tried to climb through the side panel of a door was shot in the neck, and is said to have died later in the hospital. For more on that sad incident, see the Conservative Tree House.

I was expecting some sort of false-flag action today, and it appears that the entry into the Capitol was exactly that. There was a lot of discussion in the skype groups about the fact that some of the members of the vanguard that entered the building had tattoos or clothing identifying them as Antifa. The man hanging from the balcony in the photo at the top of this post is said to be wearing mandated BLM/Antifa gear.

There are also eyewitness reports that the Antifa vanguard didn’t break through the entrances to the Capitol, but was in fact allowed in. That is, they had allies on the inside who were alerted to the plan. Which lines up with the fact that Senators and Congresscreatures, before they evacuated the building, donned gas masks which had been conveniently placed under their seats — another indication that the event was planned in advance and stage-managed.

Here’s what the rally at the Ellipse looked like earlier:

It was, I presume, the largest Trump rally in history. And possibly the last.

I didn’t learn anything new from the President’s speech. The evidence of voter fraud he described is material with which I was already familiar.

A curfew has been declared in the District of Columbia, and I assume a crackdown on “white supremacists” and “right-wing extremists” will follow.

It looks to me like the Trump movement has been skillfully played by the BLM/Antifa infiltrators working in coordination with the Deep State, presumably including the domestic intelligence agencies.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

A tangential note — Red Pill Jew sent this graph of the vote count in last night’s runoff races for the U.S. Senate in Georgia:

He says he found it on LinkedIn, so I don’t have an independent verification of its accuracy. Still, it’s very much like the graphs of the Trump/Biden results on the night of November 3-4. And those same Dominion voting machines were cranked up in heavily Democratic counties in Georgia last night.

I guess you could call it the “Build Back Better” graph.

Nothing could demonstrate more clearly that those dreamers at Power Line are simply engaged in a heavily-intellectualized act of wishful thinking when they discuss “electoral reform”. How can there be any meaningful reform when no reformers can possibly be elected? Only Democrat-approved candidates will be allowed to win from now on. Any Republican who is permitted to take office will be a tame RINO who poses no threat to Democrats and the Deep State.

It appears that the ruling oligarchy has finally achieved its heart’s desire: a hermetically sealed governmental structure that will never again have to concern itself with such trivial matters as elections and popular opinion. The Republican side of the UniParty will play its part as the permanent “Opposition” in the elaborate ritual theater known as the U.S. Congress. The Deep State will manage national affairs without interference. And all for our own good, of course.

Just take a look at the list of Joe Biden’s proposed cabinet appointees — heavily weighted with far-left Woke apparatchiks.

The Revolution is complete. They will now proceed to construct the socialist state.

The Big Ugly Begins

Today is a significant day in the looming struggle against the end of the American Republic. A huge rally of Trump supporters is taking place, centered on the Ellipse near the White House in Washington DC. At 11am President Trump is scheduled to address the crowd, which is expected to number a million people or more.

I regret to say that I won’t be attending this historic event. First of all, I’m too old for this sort of thing. Just think how long I would have to go without being able to take a leak… Yow!

Secondly, I have a doctor’s appointment today that I really need to keep. So I’ll be gone for a while, but when I get home I’ll check the news and approve your comments.

If you want to monitor breaking news, I recommend Conservative Tree House, WRSA, Gateway Pundit, and Vlad Tepes. All four sites will probably embed live feeds of the event.

So while I’m sitting there with the sphygmomanometer cuff on my arm and the stethoscope against my chest, my spirit will be up there with those good folks in the MAGA crowd on the Mall in D.C.

I don’t know how things will turn out. The rally could grow into something momentous — which will also mean violent and nasty, given what Antifa is planning — or it could all fizzle out. Then Doltin’ Joe gets inaugurated as President in two weeks, and we begin our lives in the New Normal as compliant socialist drones.

We’ll just have to wait and see.

So Here There Be Dragons! (Part II)

The essay below is the second in a series by our English correspondent Seneca III. Previously: Part 1.

So Here There Be Dragons!

by Seneca III

Part II — Ragnarök, männerbunden, eudemia and eufemia

“The centre of the Vikings’ cosmos was the ash tree Yggdrasil, growing out of the Well of Urd. Yggdrasil holds the Nine Worlds, home of gods, man and all spiritual beings. The gods live in Asgard and Vanaheim and humans inhabit Midgard. Giants live in Jotunheim, elves in Alfheim and dwarves in Svartalfheim. Another is the primordial world of ice, Niflheim, while Muspelheim is the world of fire. The last world comprises Hel, the land of the dead, ruled by the goddess Hel. —From “An Overview of the Culture and History of the Viking Age

“It is not that trash accumulates in human cities — it is that cities turn what accumulates in them into trash.” — Don Colachio

Ragnarök

In Norse mythology, Ragnarök is a series of events, including a great battle, foretold to lead to the death of a number of great figures (including the gods Odin, Thor, Týr, Freyr, Heimdallr, and Loki), natural disasters and the submersion of the world in water. After these events, the world will resurface anew and fertile, the surviving and returning gods will meet and the world will be repopulated by two human survivors.

In the Poetic Edda, the event is referred to as Ragnarök or Ragnarøkkr, old Norse for ‘“Fate of the Gods” or “Twilight of the Gods”. Wagner titled the last of his Der Ring des Nibelungen operas Götterdämmerung, meaning “Twilight of the Gods” in German.

Männerbunden, eudemia and eufemia

In those peoples that are called ‘primitive’, but which most often represent only the degenerate and ensavaged remains of more ancient races and civilizations, the phenomenon of the ‘Männerbunden’ has often attracted the attention of observers.

In such peoples, the individual, to be considered as a merely natural being, is up to a certain age left to the family and especially to maternal care, under the feminine-maternal sign, beneath which these societies locate everything which has bearing for the material, physical side of existence. But at a given moment a change of state occurs. Special rites, which are called ‘rites of passage’ and which are often accompanied by a preliminary period of isolation and hard trials, bring about, according to a schema of ‘death and rebirth’, a new being, which alone can be considered a true man. Indeed, before this, the member of the group, no matter his age, is held to be a member of the women and children, indeed even of the animals. Once he has undergone his transformation, the individual is therefore united to the so-called ‘Männerbunden’. This society, having an initiatic (sacral) and warrior character, has the power of a group. Its right is to be differentiated in terms of its responsibility and its functions. It has the power of command. It has a structure similar to that of an ‘Order’.

With the epoch of the revolutions, there began a mighty assault against whatever could conserve the semblance of a ‘Mannerbünden’, proceeding so far as a complete inversion of values and ideals.

While in the last century [19th century] there was a tendency to derive the State from the institution of the family, a more modern current has rightly located the origin of sovereignty precisely in the phenomenon of a ‘Männerbunden’. The scheme which is now indicated effectively contains the fundamental elements which appropriately define every order, and specifically every political order, and which do so with a clarity that one would seek for in vain amidst the crumbling and degraded theories of our days on the origin of sovereignty. In that schema we encounter above all the idea of a virility in an eminent and spiritual sense, the quality of man as vir (as the Romans would say) and not as simple homo. To this is tied, as has been seen, a ‘break in level’, or a change in state; in its simplest expression, it is the detachment from the sensible, vegetative, physical state. Then there is the idea of a specific unity, much different from any other of ‘naturalistic’ character (as the family, the simple ‘people’, etc.). Finally, there is the idea of power as something connected essentially with this higher plane, so that originally it was recognized as possessing the character of a force from on high, of a ‘sacred power’ (auctoritas and with it imperium in the ancient Roman idea).

Therefore, we can with good right regard all of these matters as ‘constants’, that is, basic ideas which, in very different applications, formulations and derivations, appear recurrently in every major political organization of the past. On account of the processes of deconsecration, of rationalization and of materialization, which have grown ever more accentuated in the course of the times, these original meanings were forced to conceal themselves and to recede. But this remains ever unchanged: where these meanings have been totally obliterated, so that they no longer exist even in a transposed and debilitated form, without any longer even a background of initiatic or sacral character, there no longer exists a true State; every concept has been lost which, in an eminent and traditional sense, makes political reality, in its specific dignity and difference with respect to all the other spheres of existence and, in particular, with respect to all that which has an exclusively economic or ‘social’ character.

With the epoch of the revolutions, there began, in Europe, a mighty assault against whatever could conserve the semblance of a ‘Männerbunden’, which is to say, an assault against the very political principle itself, against the principle of every true sovereignty, proceeding so far as a complete inversion of values and ideals. Indeed, in one form or another the societarian ideologies have reigned for some time now — ideologies which represent simply the anti-State, and also a kind of protest against the virile principle on behalf of all that which, for its connection to the simply physical life of a society, and according to the aforementioned view of the origins, has an analogously ‘feminine’ and promiscuous character. While for the ‘Männerbunden’ honour, battle and dominion are values, for the simple ‘society’, on the other hand, peace, the economy, material well-being, the naturalistic life of the instincts and of the sentiments, and petty security are values: and, at their limit, hedonism and eudaimonism, as against heroism, rank and aristocracy…

[Julius Evola: The Crisis of Modern Society]

In my youth, joining the brotherhood of the military was a rite of passage, an entry into Männerbunden. Now, ‘military’, in the full meaning of that word, is slowly being hollowed out by the enforced entry and the affirmative-actioned fast-track promotion of women, racial minorities — particularly Muslims despite their being acolytes of a belief system dedicated to the subjugation or extermination of Judeo-Christians — and every possible sexual, ideological and moral deviant imaginable, most of them being unsuited for the purpose to which they are assigned, the defence of the realm. In the West our Nation States are in dire jeopardy.

The Enricher Who Stole Christmas

Youness Ouaali is a well-known “Dutch” vlogger and community leader. In the video below he argues that celebrating Christmas is worse than anal sex or doing drugs.

Last year Mr. Ouaali was convicted of having sex with a minor girl who has a learning disability. He has also reportedly done cocaine, and allegedly blew up the apartment of the parents of another vlogger with whom he had a disagreement.

At the end of the video there is a photo of the Moroccan soccer player Chouf Nador next to a Christmas tree, which apparently is what prompted Mr. Ouaali to record his video.
