Supporting Hamas

I am greatly puzzled and disturbed by the support for Hamas that I’ve seen throughout the world. There have been crowds of pro-Palestine people chanting “Death to the Jews.” There has been vandalism of synagogues and Jewish businesses, attacks against Jews, beatings and murders.

Humanity of the Neanderthals

I’ve often wondered what it is that makes us human. There have been many attempts to answer this question. We make tools. We walk upright. We developed speech. As we’ve learned more about the world, these answers have proved to be inadequate.

Today is the 85th anniversary of Kristallnacht, a night of antisemitic violence in Nazi Germany where mobs destroyed Jewish businesses, burned synagogues, beat and murdered Jews. Kristallnacht means crystal night, from the large amount of broken glass in the streets that looked like crystals.

As Israeli forces have retaken areas that had been attacked by Hamas, they have discovered evidence of atrocities that haven’t been seen since the Second World War. People had been massacred, their bodies mutilate. Babies were decapitated. Some evidently had been burned. Women had been raped.

Tax The Churches

One of the biggest scams in the US is the way some churches rake in millions of dollars and don’t have to pay taxes on it. Churches should be taxed just like any other money-making endeavor.

Ethnic Cleansing

On October 7, 2023, fighters from Hamas attacked Israel from Gaza. This was a well-coordinated attack using air, sea, and ground forces, including firing thousands of missiles from Gaza into Israeli cities. The targets was civilians. They entered towns and villages, killed many of the inhabitants, and took others as hostages.

MGTOW is an acronym for Men Going Their Own Way. It is a community of men who have decided not to include women in their lives. The idea is that society has become seriously biased in favor of women and against men. The participants cite unfair treatment in divorces, domestic violence, child custody, etc.

There is a good bit of truth to this perception. Men are often treated unfairly, both in courts and in society. For example, I commonly encounter anti-male sentiments that are casually posted; were these sentiments directed against any other minority, the authors would be roundly condemned. But since it is against men, it is tolerated. As a man I have encountered such bigotry throughout my life.

I sympathize with much of the MGTOW ideology; however, these folks have become toxic. Their posts and comments are often blatantly, even viciously misogynistic. It’s one thing to object to being maltreated. It’s another to turn around and dish it out again.

As I investigated this community, I encountered some serious nastiness. Women are often referred to at THOT – That Ho Over There. A woman who wears brief workout clothes at a gym is considered to be trolling for a man to latch onto for financial benefit. Single mothers are all out trying to find a man to support them. And so on.

This is a bleak outlook, and grossly unfair to women. Granted, the courts do favor women unfairly in many cases. Some women do take advantage of men. But to live in a world where all the women are bloodsucking leeches is seriously fucked. And also bullshit.

It’s entirely possible to choose to separate from women, without having to demonize them. Just stay away. You can be polite, decline any overtures, and – well, go your own way. You don’t have to hate anyone to do this.

Incubi and Succubi

Back in the Middle Ages, people were troubled by demons who would come at night to seduce them. Women were seduced by male-appearing demons called incubi (singular, incubus); men would encounter succubi (singular, succubus).

Chinese “Weather” Balloon

About a week ago, a large balloon wandered into US airspace.  The balloon was from China; the Chinese government acknowledged ownership, and claimed that it was a weather balloon that had gone off course.

It’s Offensive

I don’t know when this happened.  It kind of crept up on me over the years.  But now there is a highly vocal group of people who police the Internet and try to destroy those they deem “offensive.”  This is bullshit.
