Part IV — Lacunae
This part of the series is a short list, with commentary, of some factors contributing to the moral, cultural and political dilemmas we face today, i.e. those either not covered in the preceding parts in detail, not at all or at best only alluded to. A Summaries and an Afterword follow in Parts VA and VB.
“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.”
— William Pitt the Younger — Speech in the House of Commons (18 November, 1783).
“The tyrant’s plea, / excus’d his devilish deeds”
— John Milton — Paradise Lost, Book iv, line 393.
1. Language — its function and evolution
Language uniquely separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom. It enables us to organise and cooperate in complicated ways, to clearly communicate ideas (even abstract ones), emotions, intentions, and much else. It is not a sessile but a motile, dynamic construct constantly being expanded by the introduction of neologisms and also contracted through words and definitions, ‘archaisms’, falling into disuse. Language allows and inspires us to jointly explore and mutually contemplate ourselves and the world and universe around us in a variety of ways practical, philosophical and metaphysical. In competent, successful speaking or writing, language and thought are contiguous, and the words chosen offer us an immediate presentation of some aspect of reality.
Yet, we simply don’t know how language originated. We do know that the ability to produce sound and simple vocal patterning (a hum versus a grunt, for example) appears to be in an ancient part of the brain that we share with all vertebrates, including fish, frogs, birds and other mammals. But that isn’t human language. It is suspected that some type of spoken language must have developed between 100,000 and 50,000 years ago, well before written language (about 5,000 years ago). Yet, among the traces of earlier periods of life on Earth, we never find any direct evidence or artefacts relating to the speech of our distant ancestors. Perhaps because of this absence of direct physical evidence, there has been no shortage of speculation about the origins of human speech. An understanding of how and why human languages developed is a rich field. Darwin was of the opinion that:
“Music, rhythms, frogs, birds, the nightly howling of canis simensis across the Ethiopian high plateau, the song of whales, communicate in ways limited to their immediate environment, establish but limited or for mating purposes, not that our ways in that circumstances are worthy or would stand well under scrutiny.”
2. The use and abuse of tone poetry and figurative language
Languages come in many variants and from different roots yet most are composed of nouns, verbs adjectives, etc. expressed through vowels and consonants. One exception is the ‘click languages’ of Africa, a group of languages in which clicks function as normal consonants. The sole example of a language using clicks outside of Africa is that of ‘Damin’, a ritual vocabulary of the Lardil tribe of northern Queensland, Australia.
In written language punctuation primarily serves to create sense, clarity and stress in sentences, to indicate pauses in the flow and to emphasise or explain certain ideas or thoughts through words, facts and phrases that are presented in the text, thus structuring and organising the written word. If punctuation is missing, as in the [paragraph] below, and as it is in many legal documents, or in what passes for modern journalism, then the use of emphasis, obfuscation, opinions, conflation, relevance and disambiguation can lead to different or preferential interpretations thus, permitting a situation where to precisely define what is true and what is not is difficult or near impossible.
[In written language punctuation primarily serves to create sense clarity and stress in sentences to indicate pauses in the flow and to emphasise or explain certain ideas or thoughts through words facts and phrases that are presented in the text thus structuring and organising the written word If punctuation is missing as in the paragraph below and as it is in many legal documents or in what passes for modern journalism then the use of emphasis obfuscation opinions conflation relevance and disambiguation can lead to different or preferential interpretations thus permitting a situation where to precisely define what is true and what is not is difficult or near impossible.]
However, oratory and rhetoric, which are essentially verbal streams of consciousness used to educate, motivate, deceive or misinform are slightly different, whereby emphasis or the lack of it, pauses, tautologies, gesticulations and responses to audience responses can and often do project and affirm falsehoods favouring the position supported or being proposed by the orator. Skilful lawyers can and do utilise such techniques during the course of a trial and when making closing statements to juries; politicians, particularly on the hustings when trying to con the electorate, do the same, which is why so many of them manage to slither into Parliament in the first place. Media audio-visual presenters do this as well, and they are pretty good at it. Instead of actually addressing the argument itself they focus on a rhetorical flourish that you may consider overly dramatic, inappropriate or irrelevant then, if you question this, they imply that your emotional response invalidates your case. That is tone poetry.
In the following video you can see a Turkish woman deliberately vandalizing the memorial for last month’s terror attack in downtown Vienna by kicking over the candles.
It’s no surprise to learn that the vandaless reportedly has psychological problems.
On Wednesday night a Palestinian culture-enricher damaged and decapitated a statue of the Virgin Mary near Venice. No motive for the desecration has yet been determined, but it is thought that the misguided “youth” may be mentally ill.
Below is an article about the incident from ANSA:
Statue of Madonna Decapitated Near Venice
Palestinian, 31, charged with offending religion
(ANSA) — VENICE, 26 NOV — A statue of the Madonna at Marghera near Venice had its head and hands lopped off overnight, police aid Thursday.
A 31-year-old Palestinian has been arrested on charges of defacing the statue after being caught on CCTV.
He has been charged with “offending a religious faith via damaging property”.
Venice Mayor Luigi Brugnaro issued a firm condemnation of a “cowardly act, aimed at wounding our sensibilities”.
The Palestinian is a regular immigrant with a refugee travel document issued by Belgium, police said.
The following video (which is audio-only) was recorded surreptitiously in a German schoolroom. If this incident is representative of the emotional state of this particular teacher, she is likely to be facing severe stress-related medical disorders in the not-so-distant future.
Coronamadness is abroad in the land. It has infected a large proportion — possibly a majority — of the population in Western countries. That’s why I expect the vaccine to be made mandatory — when strong feelings are this prevalent among the electorate, it motivates politicians to enact repressive legislation that seems to solve the issue.
An unexpected side effect of the October 16 beheading of Samuel Paty has been an open diplomatic rift between France and Turkey. French President Emmanuel Macron’s response to the crisis provoked a reaction from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, causing the latter to question the former’s sanity.
The Élysée [residence of President Macron] denounces the “unacceptable” remarks of Erdogan against Macron
The Turkish president called on his French counterpart to “have mental health exams”, condemning his attitude toward Muslims. The Élysée has reacted and brought up the “absence of condolence and support messages” from Turkey after the assassination of Samuel Paty.

On Saturday 24 October the Élysée denounced the remarks, judged “unacceptable”, of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who called into question “the mental health” of his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, because of his attitude towards Muslims.
Earlier this Saturday during a televised speech, the Turkish president virulently criticized the decisions of his French counterpart towards the Muslim community. “All one can say of a chief of state who treats millions of members of different religious communities in this manner is: First go and have mental health exams,” he declared.
The speech was condemned by the Élysée at the end of the afternoon. “The remarks of President Erdogan are unacceptable. Excess and rudeness are not a method. We demand Erdogan change the course of his policy. It is dangerous to all. We do not enter into useless polemics, and we do not accept insults,” the Élysée commented, according to the AFP (Agence France Presse), in announcing the recall of the French ambassador to Ankara for consultations.
The Élysée also brought up “the absence of messages of condolence and support from the Turkish president after the assassination of Samuel Paty,” the teacher beheaded a week ago is an Islamic attack in the proximity of his school in a Parisian suburb. Also noted were the “very offensive statements (of Recep Tayyip Erdogan) in recent days, notably his call for a boycott of French products.”
The Turkish president did not stop there: He also predicted that Emmanuel Macron would lose the next presidential election in 2022, “because he has accomplished nothing for France. You spend your time attacking me. That will gain you nothing.”
Two weeks ago Recep Tayyip Erdogan denounced as a provocation the statements of the French president on “Islamist separatism” and the necessity of “structuring Islam” in France. A bill on the fight against “The separatisms” in France, directed at radical Islam, should be presented at the beginning of December. It aims to reinforce secularism and consolidate republican principles in France, and includes several points likely to provoke tensions with Turkey, such as strengthened control of mosque financing or a ban on the training of imams abroad.
This dispute is added to a long list of disagreements between Emmanuel Macron and his Turkish counterpart, who regularly takes up the defense of Muslim minorities throughout the world. From the tensions in the Mediterranean to the conflict in Libya, to the clashes in [Nagorno-]Karabakh, a number of issues currently pit Paris and Ankara against each other.
Como is a city in Lombardy in northern Italy. A Catholic priest, Don Roberto Malgesini, was stabbed to death yesterday in Como by a culture-enricher. Fr. Roberto was a refugee-helper, and was known to his attacker.
The translator includes this introductory note:
This crime has shocked all of Italy. It is not in the video, but the name of the killer is Ridha Mahmoudi, a 53-year-old from Tunisia. He is homeless, said to have psychiatric problems, and turned himself into the police while expressing no remorse. He has a series of petty crimes on his record, and was under a deportation order.
The tragic incident has a Mohammed Coefficient of 100%:
On Tuesday night a culture-enriching Iraqi motorist in Berlin decided to use his vehicle to run over various people riding motorcycles and scooters. Authorities believe the alleged perpetrator suffers from psychiatric problems. The disturbed Iraqi allegedly shouted “Allahu Akhbar” during his vehicular rampage.
Gerald Grosz is an Austrian politician for the BZÖ (Bündnis Zukunft Österreich, Alliance for the Future of Austria) and the FPÖ (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, Austrian Freedom Party). His video rants are quite popular (see recent examples here and here).
In the following video Mr. Grosz mocks an unidentified citizen in the city of Graz who complained that the sound of church bells disturbs his sleep at night. The ethnicity of the frustrated insomniac is not specified, but the context of the sarcastic rant makes it clear that he’s a culture-enricher.
Once again, our Israeli correspondent MC weighs in on the Culture Wars.
Of Burkas and Bare Bottoms
Perhaps a measure of civilization is the amount of freedom we give our wives and daughters; freedom to live their own lives. Or do we lock them up for our own private consumption?
Anybody who has read A.J. Cronin’s Hatter’s Castle will remember the tyrannical father who throws his accidentally pregnant daughter on the street after her fiancé dies in the Tay Bridge railway disaster (1879). This was Victorian England, and women were held to higher moral standards than their menfolk. The idea of Eve as the intellectually inferior ‘temptress’ was still with us.
In the Garden of Eden, Eve got it all wrong and in so doing destroyed poor, poor Adam. But read it carefully and a different picture emerges; somebody (Adam most likely) told her not to even touch the tree, which the serpent was able to prove was a pack of lies and so erode confidence. The woman confesses that she was deceived by the serpent, Adam blames everybody but himself.
So why does society see Eve as the stupid tart when it was Adam’s arrogance that caused all the problems? Our churches and synagogues are still filled with women of faith and wisdom; it is the men who usually fail to stand up.
Barbaric male-dominated societies seem to be obsessed with ‘virginity’ and ‘purity’, and are ready to murder if they deem that their penile honour has been compromised.
I am not female, and I do not necessarily believe that recreational sex is a good thing, but it happens, especially when people have feelings for each other. Yet in a society where women have equal rights, then I have to accept that it is the woman’s absolute right to choose her sexual partner, and at a time or place of her choosing.
Provided, that is, she fully understands the risks involved. The same goes for the males, of course, and the risk of pregnancy, even despite precautions, is a shared responsibility.
Virginity as such, belongs solely to the girl or woman in question, and is not the plaything of any relative, male or otherwise. This can be very hard for a father to understand, even in this modern society.
However, young girls need to be protected, which means that their rights are violated, but that protection needs to be provided by parents and by society as a whole. Most 12-year-olds (and many 16-year-olds) are not capable of informed consent, and are thus ‘easy meat’ to any handsome male targeting them. The problem here is that girls can get pregnant, and are thus a special case in society, and the younger the girl, the more dangerous the pregnancy can be.
The Islamic habit of regarding unguarded children as fair game is thus a depraved and deplorable attack on the equality of women, and one must ask: where are the feminists demanding that Muslim rapists and sex-slavers be justly punished? But it’s all gone quiet over there because ‘racism’ trumps all.
In the 1980s professional soccer players wore short shorts. In the Victorian 1880s they were somewhat longer. But then along came the influence of Islam, and FIFA had to make rules about the length of shorts and the removal of tops. The players of 40 years ago would often exchange tops after a big game. It was innocent, but not to Islam…
I posted a video last night that described the cancellation by leftists of Lucy Eckhart, an Austrian cabaret artist who has worked for German TV. She has recently been the target of vicious attacks by Antifa and other German progressives.
Oz-Rita, who translated the clip below for subtitling, sends this introductory note:
This is possibly a companion piece to a video by a young German vlogger named “Neverforgetniki” that Vlad subtitled yesterday. It will show what cannot be said in Merkel’s Germany any longer, because her black-shirts (yes, Antifa is being OFFICIALLY paid by Merkel’s government) do not like it.
Lisa Eckhart (who really reminds me of the Berlin cabaret scene in the 1920s) came from the “Poetry Slam Szene”. I like her; she is sharp and subtle to the point that I wonder how the Antifa managed to get onto her. This little video is interesting even without the scandal that seems to be happening around her.
Back in May I posted about a young “Swede” named Tishko Ahmed Shabaz, who was arrested for murdering and beheading his 17-year-old native Swedish girlfriend. The report below provides an update on the case.
Wilma’s Murderer — Not Insane
by Malim Kardell
July 15, 2020
Wilma’s ex-boyfriend, Tishko Ahmed, 23, does not suffer from any serious mental disorder. That is according to the forensic psychiatric examination made public on Wednesday. Now the 23-year-old risks life imprisonment for murder.
Wilma Andersson, 17, disappeared without a trace from her home in Uddevalla on November 17 of last year. Two weeks later, police reported that a body part had been found, which meant that any hope that the disappeared girl would be found alive no longer existed.
In June of this year, the Uddevalla district court found Ahmed guilty of murder and desecration of a dead body.
Now it has emerged in a statement from the Forensic Medical Agency that Wilma’s murderer, the 23-year-old ex-boyfriend, does not suffer from any psychiatric disorder.
According to the statement, which was made public when it was submitted to the Uddevalla district court on Wednesday, the 23-year-old did not did not commit the acts he was accused of under the influence of a serious mental disorder. Thus, there are no medical conditions which would require him to be turned over to judicial psychiatric care.
In practice, this means that he now risks being sentenced to life imprisonment, as the prosecutor, Jim Westerberg, demanded during the main proceedings in Uddevalla district court in June. In connection with the court’s judgment, it was reported that the man should undergo a forensic psychiatric examination.
Tried to rape 11-year-old boy — Detained by victim’s parents
July 11, 2020
Two parents in Upplands Väsby detained a 16-year-old who is suspected of the attempted rape of their 11-year-old son. The 16-year-old, who is a Somali citizen, is also suspected of raping a 12-year-old and was earlier sentenced to juvenile custody for other crimes.
Last November a 16-year-old of Somali citizenship was detained by an 11-year-old boy’s parents after a rape attempt on the boy in Upplands Väsby, Expressen reports.
A month before the assault on the 11-year-old, the 16-year-old is suspected of raping a 12-year-old boy during a similar assault, which he broke off when the boy offered him his weekly allowance to let him go.
That consisted of a pair of hundred-kronor notes, and the perpetrator took the money to let the child go, Östling says.
The 16-year-old is earlier suspected of committing 35 crimes during the past year, including beating, unlawful threat, harassment, and burglary. At the time of the assault, he was taken into custody after having been sentenced to juvenile custody.
The mother of the 11-year-old boy told Expressen that her son had come home and said that he had been threatened with a knife and subjected to an attempted rape.
She and her husband decided to look for the attacker even though the son warned them that he was armed.
“My son cried; he was hysterical, and said that the boy had a knife. My son was terrified that he would hurt us. I said that we had to find him so that he can’t do this to another child,” the mother told Expressen.
They found the 16-year-old, and the mother was able to hold him until police came to the scene.
