65-KNOW YOUR BULLY

Knowing who and what you are is knowing your bully. If we don’t introduce the child to Darwinism and teach him the origins of life and the laws of natural selection, there is no hope of taking away the bully’s power. The child has to know that he is 100% animal of the ape family like his parents and that he is forced to live by the dictates of his ANS just like all animals on earth. If he understands how wild animals behave in the natural selection world around him, and knows that humans behave just like that, though in more sophisticated ways since they broke the time barrier, he’ll be able to put two and two together. He’ll realize that he is genetically programmed like an ape in spite of the fact that he uses a knife and fork when he eats. He may even deduce, that being intelligent allows humans to be much more inventive in acting out all the dastardly tendencies in the wild ape’s inventory.

Fighting tooth and nail in order to become an alpha is genetically sound in the animal kingdom, but when we broke the time barrier and became intelligent some three million years ago, we ceased being subjected to the laws of natural selection. So, genetically, we are meant to become bullies, but because we are intelligent, bullying has become a negative social force. Intelligence being the ability to tie past experiences with future experiences while making sense of the present, most of us realize that bullying is counterproductive to the group.

The alpha male of yesteryear was altruistic, for his only purpose was to ensure the quality of the genetic stock within the group while protecting the members of the group. Today, the only altruistic alpha left in the world of humans sits at the head of the dynasty of bankers in the City in London. Those prancing around us pretending to be alphas are bullies, mean and nasty individuals who are bent on pursuing their own agenda. We left the 24/7 world of survival a long time ago, but we still live by the archaic laws of survival of the fittest. And because we have less and less to do, and because we are genuine apes that need to be told what to do in spite of the fact that we do everything in our power to prove otherwise, it’s a situation that fosters the proliferation of pseudo alphas, or bullies. The laws of survival of the fittest or natural selection no longer apply to us, yet we still live by them, and that is what is killing us in the world of leisure that we find ourselves in. Getting ass, kicking ass and making money are the bullies’ main preoccupations, and we all admire those who succeed. Why aren’t we interested in human values, self-fulfillment and happiness? We could say that it’s because self-fulfillment is like a vegetable garden, we all think it’s a great idea and even dream about its benefits, but never pursue the idea of working a garden because it doesn’t pay and it’s too much work.

Nonetheless, we can be sure that the financial power sitting in the City is interested in maintaining the great market economies of the world that it created, while doing everything it can to improve them. We have the World Bank, UNESCO, World Heritage, Green Peace, WWF, and all the UN agencies and private institutions like National Geographic and the Smithsonian, along with the world bank that indirectly finances thousands of NGO’s and thousands of university labs and research centers. The Pacific garbage patches will be cleaned up, wildlife will survive as the numerous UNESCO protected parks are joined by corridors in Africa as well as North America, we will have abundant clean energy by way of fusion, hydrogen and solar, we will grow all the food we need, and all this because the City dynasty of bankers are intent on protecting and improving the global village they created. Unfortunately, because we are being socially empowered while needing to be told what to do every step of the way, we have become a fragile screwed-up specie. The only way Big Brother has of dealing with this dichotomy festering in all of us is to make ever greater use of the crop mentioned earlier, that is, by imposing more controls and restrictions regarding our security and safety.

However, because Big Brother created the world of leisure and knows we live a life that we are not genetically programmed for, he creates ways to occupy our leisure time. Right up until the start of the 20th century, people were busy just plain surviving 24/7, as many in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Russia still do today. Survival, religion and politics kept the masses busy for the longest time, but when the three Gorgon Sisters were created in mid 19th century, and especially when steam and electricity became widespread at the end of that century, leisure time started increasing. After two world wars that kept us more than busy, after the signing of the Bretton Woods agreement in 1944, and especially after the new market economies started roaring, providing us jobs in the process, more ways had to be developed to keep the populations busy. At first, jobs encouraged people to shop and accumulate material things, and that was a very attractive way of spending time, but today, it’s proving to be counterproductive in fulfillment terms. That’s why Big Brother is now bent on developing other ways to help us spend our leisure time. Making money, consuming and watching television got us through most of the 20th century, but we are now hard-wired to the Gorgon Sisters through our smartphones, which is a much more efficient way of occupying our idle moments. And since sports, travel, and rallies and concerts of all kinds are saner ways to occupy the masses, that is what is being financed today at breakneck speed, for it allows the whole world to join in as participant or spectator. The hundreds of world and international competitions, starting with the Olympics, winter, summer and para, involving hundreds of sports, with new ones being developed everyday, seen worldwide on television or our smartphones, along with the thousands of rallies and concerts, are proof that sports, entertainment and politics are replacing religion as the opium of the people. In the last hundred years, sports participation and viewing has increased exponentially and there is no slow-down in sight, thanks to the research and development money from Big Brother in the City.

However, because we live in this great world of leisure, we often forget that we are genetically programmed to be violent, and that that violence has to be somehow released. During millions of years, we were forced to kill wild animals for food and were often killed in the process, and we had to get through deadly winters and summer droughts waiting for food. The memories of those violent ways are genetically imprinted in us. Thankfully, we started being less violent around 20k years ago when we settled down and grew food, and more so 5k years ago when writing and religion were created. But we only started living in a leisurely fashion in early 20th century when electricity was made available to the masses. Though ever more political rallies, sports events, concerts and travel are all good ways to release the tension that builds up in us, such activities should be accompanied by an educational system that addresses who and what we are, and how and why we behave the way we do. We have to face the fact that we are intelligent apes, and that we act exactly like apes. We have to stop using the god concept that was created in 325 CE as a crutch to make us forget our apeness.

Because we come from a violent past, and because the archaic laws of natural selection still incite us to follow the laws of survival of the fittest, it makes us all potential bullies when given a chance. Give someone a badge, a uniform, a title, a rank, wealth or a high salary, and you can make him do just about anything you want. Napoleon was the first bright example, then there were the Hitler’s, the Stalin’s, the Mao’s, and the Tojo’s, while today it’s clowns like Trump, Putin and Johnson that supposedly guide us. Before 1944, the City used henchmen to bulldoze the old regimes of the world, today, they use clowns to entertain us.

Learning Darwinism is learning humility. Knowledge is not weakness, it is strength. Self-empowerment is based on strength and humility, while societal empowerment is based on arrogance and weakness. We have no choice but to use societal empowerment forces to reclaim self-empowerment if we want to feel fulfilled. The key to doing this lies in reclaiming our values, the same values that apply to all living things. If, in our daily lives, we stress immediate gratification and nurture greed to the detriment of family life and creative activities, it’s like shopping for food in a supermarket instead of growing it. Like all of universe we follow the path of least resistance, and as humans living in a world of plenty chasing the ‘mores’ of the world, we are very much like a great beautiful car with the gas gauge pointing to empty.

 

64-HIGH SCHOOL JUNGLE

 

As a child, getting intimately connected to one’s parents is a beautiful thing that lasts a lifetime. When official education begins in grade school, it is also a wonderful experience, for children are surrounded by nurturing teachers who gently teach them reading, writing, arithmetic and socializing. Later, if he’s lucky, the teen will not go to a middle school, but rather straight from grade school to high school. School becomes a jungle when students become teens, for that is when their libido kicks in, and it starts in middle school. If middle school is integrated into the grade school, then the same nurturing and caring atmosphere will likely reign until they go to high school. When all is said and done, high school is the best training grounds for those who still live by the laws of ‘survival of the fittest’, the bullies.

In high school, that’s when the smelly stuff hits the proverbial fan. Because the teens are now more interested in knowing where they stand with regards to their peer group than listening to the wise counsel of parents and teachers, the nurturing mode goes out the window. It could be said that the students are now on their own in a virtual jungle. The school is ruled by a student dictatorship composed of dorks who surround themselves with molls and goons that sit in the school hallways at lunchtime. This ruling class treat students involved in creative activities, be it shops, music, art, or computer science as lowly nerds, or worse. The goons and molls are mean and nasty and outdo themselves to be well perceived by the dorks. If good girls want to be accepted, they may have to do demeaning sexual acts such as fellatio on the dorks, and the molls are often the enforcers. As for the homosexuals, they are bullied in despicable ways, and everybody lives by the law of omerta. If one knows how high schools tick, one can understand why there are so many suicides and shootings during those ‘learning’ years.

The question then is how does this come about. A good answer would be to say that it’s because children are entering the world of libido and the defunct yet persisting world of survival of the fittest while at the same time leaving their parents’ direct influence. Survival of the fittest and natural selection no longer apply to the human race, but students are bent on living by those very laws. The teens are simply getting ready for the consumer world facing them. The tragedy is that they’re motivated to live by the archaic laws of ‘survival of the fittest’ to the detriment of the values that make all humans happy, because that’s what society tells them to do. They want to be perceived as alphas, in a world where altruistic alphas have long ceased to exist, instead of trying to identify what they really love to do and learning how to establish meaningful relationships. In the wild, the alpha was absolutely indispensable to the survival of the group, but humans have become intelligent, and now live in a world of credit. The genuine altruistic alphas have gone the way of the dinosaurs. Those who still try to be alphas are selfish bullies and are harmful to the group.

High schools are baby-sitting institutions ruled by wannabe pseudo alphas, and that excludes the teaching staff. We could ask, at this point, how dorks become dorks or how hierarchy is established. Well, it has to do with their dong. When boys grow up, they want to know how their wee-wee compares to others. They have all kinds of games and tricks in order to accomplish this. At first, they may have long distance peeing contests, and later, even ejaculating contests, and all this with one thing in mind, how big is my dork compared to the others, or how much of a man am I. As boys get older, the ones with the small dongs know better than to become athletes that have to use the communal showers. They especially don’t want to give a moll, a dork groupie, the opportunity to humiliate them as a male, and that limits their social ambitions. Hierarchy is established just like in the animal kingdom at large. It has to do mainly with strength and size, and if a dork happens to be tall, good-looking and smart and belongs to an ‘important’ family, there’s no telling how far he will go on the road to becoming a pseudo-alpha, or a full blown out bully.

Bullying is normal and genetically sound, for all males in the animal kingdom try to become alphas in that very way. It’s necessary for the survival of each specie because alphas spread the best genes and protect the group. Individuals of a group will force any outsider, who is in the slightest different from them, out of the group. Bullying and exclusion are still very much part of our genetic make-up, but these genetic tendencies must remain latent in the global village of intelligent humans. Though we will always have those genetic tendencies, because we are intelligent, and especially because we have been living in this wonderful world of credit for more than 100 years, a growing number of citizens realize they do more harm than good. More to the point, they no longer contribute to the welfare of society in any way and are harmful to individuals.

If we are to counter these genetic tendencies, we can only do it through education. However, we first have to face the fact that we are 100% animal of the ape family, and admit we have those archaic genetic tendencies. Like in an AA meeting, individuals can only fight their addiction if they first admit they’re addicted. Since most religious groups refuse to face up to the fact that we’re apes, and since our societies are morally guided by those groups, it seems like an impossible task. Some well-meaning and caring individuals use band-aid approaches by pushing for stronger legal deterrents against bullying, but nothing can be done until schools start teaching Darwinism instead of creationism as a starter.

Not only do we have those ‘survival of the fittest’ tendencies in all of us, but modern parents are the ones who are responsible for the proliferation of bullies. Insensitive parenting and unpredictable or negligent care, over-praising and excessive pampering where parents focus intensely on a particular talent or physical trait of their child as a result of their own self-esteem issues, wreaking criticism and abuse that leads to trauma, and later, having extremely high expectations, are sure ways to create a misfit who suffers from a narcissistic personality disorder, or worse, who wants to hit back.

We can wean ourselves off the ‘survival of the fittest’ syndrome by undergoing an educational process based on apprenticeships. The American kick-ass system and the English queenie system have to be reset. Chances are, if one helps his child accept his animal origins and discover his genuine talents, the child will cope very nicely, knowing he is heading for a lifetime of fulfillment. Getting the most prestigious diploma in the most prestigious institution at all cost is not the path to follow, discovering what you love doing and honing your natural talents, that may or may not require diplomas, is. If one does what he loves doing for a living, he will never work a day in his life, and by the same token, will diffuse well-being, fulfillment and happiness all around him. Being nurturing and creative are what makes humans beautiful.

 

59-THE IDEAL COUPLE

With regards to the hypothetical couple that I’ve chosen, both partners are eighteen years of age and heterosexual. They have been having regular sex for two years with both their parents’ approval, and they are both intent on avoiding disease and pregnancy. She has an LARC arm implant, and they can’t get enough of each other, so for now, fidelity and pregnancy are not a problem. They both agree to be answerable to all four parents who support them unconditionally, and this fosters mutual affection and trust.

They share thoughts and feelings concerning their parents, siblings, teachers, friends and pets, and talk about everything under the sun. They are aware they are living in the best of all possible worlds. They know they are 100% animals of the ape family and that their branch became intelligent some three million years ago. As intelligent animals, they realize they have the possibility of exercising some control over their autonomic nervous system. By curbing the disruptive forces of their ANS, mainly with regards to reproduction, they realize they can look forward to a lifelong relationship in a happy family context.

They are aware that all beings are beautiful and fulfilled when in a nurturing or creative mode, and that’s why they both want to form a lifelong family team and do what they love doing for a living. They have just finished high school, but do not plan to go to college until they are absolutely sure of what they want to do for a living. For now, he wants to become an architect. He has been working summers for a local building contractor and the latter has agreed to employ him full time. His passion is to conceive and eventually build self-sustaining buildings. She is very interested in animals and wants to be a veterinarian. After working summers at a local zoo, she has been offered an assistant’s position fulltime. Her passion is living with plants and animals and learning how to take care of them. They have rented a modest house on the outskirts of the city in order to have the full experience of living together. They want the responsibilities of looking after a house, having a garden and pets, and doing daily chores. His father gave them his car when he upgraded to a hybrid, and that takes care of transportation. They are committed to living together three years and will not marry or have kids till the end of that period, if they so decide. If one of them changes his or her mind during the trial period, they will go their separate ways, no matter how painful. All four parents are partners to this agreement and will support them in any way they can.

As they go about working in the real world as apprentices, they will pay for their own living expenses. As for college tuition, their parents have already planned ahead by creating a fund for that very purpose. In the meantime, they will glean all the knowledge they possibly can from their coworkers and sign up for all pertinent online university courses while waiting to physically register at a university in order to terminate their degrees and pursue their life’s passion.

They are active teens who jog and swim on a regular basis and have no intention of stopping. They each have a smartphone but use them strictly for meaningful communication. Like her mother, she refuses to wear the badge of femininity, no matter how great the social pressures. But of course, she doesn’t intend giving up on bizarre hairdos, fun clothing, and junky jewellery. They intend to cut the cable and stick to reading, watching movies and making and listening to music. Inviting friends over for simple home prepared meals made with natural ingredients will be a lot of fun. His father already makes his own wine, and he plans to team up with him, for making wine with his dad will be a nice way for them to bond. Enjoying the odd glass of wine with his wife-to-be and friends over home-cooked meals will also make for heart-warming experiences.

Accumulating wealth will never be their main objective. However, because they live in a world where it’s rather easy to make money, it’s not to be dismissed out of hand. Real estate values tend to rise, so owning one’s own home is a starting point. As for making real money, the couple will sit down and decide which multinational they want working for them. They’ll choose one that makes things they personally believe in and that are indispensable to the human race, like food, transport, communication, biotechnology and energy. Once they’re convinced they have the right company, they’ll buy shares in it every time they have spare money. Buying shares via the internet is a rather cheap and easy way to go about doing just that. Once the shares are bought, they’ll forget about them. They’ll never play the market. Their capital will grow as the world markets grow, and by adding to their capital little by little, down the road, they’ll have more than enough for their children’s education and their own retirement. If they adopt a healthy lifestyle, are passionate about their work, own their own home, and invest their extra cash in their chosen multinationals, they’ll have done away with most material obstacles that usually prove disastrous to young married couples, and thus be free to have and raise children. However, the greatest destructive force that they’ll have to face in their relationship is still lurking in the wings.

This young couple has seriously reflected on the problem where males are genetically programmed to reproduce well into old age while females cease to reproduce at menopause. They know that when she reaches menopause, he will no longer be sexually aroused by her. Since his ANS will continue to incite him to reproduce, and since he will be looking at younger women, they must get ready to counter this eventual pitfall. When a couple reaches that stage, it’s what I call hitting the WALL.

Fortunately, they know that human means intelligent, and that they have some say in complying with their ANS. For instance, if one is hungry, one can have an apple or a processed meat sandwich, and if one is thirsty, one can have a glass of water or a can of pop laced with sugar. The individual has no choice but to quench his thirst or satiate his hunger, but because he’s intelligent, he can choose how to do it, and with what. In a similar manner, they can control their libido to some degree, and that’s the secret to countering the potential destructive forces of the ANS.

They know they are animals that became intelligent when hominids broke the time barrier some three million years ago. They know that being intelligent means they can connect past experiences with the present and use that knowledge to make a better future. They know that sex is not love. Sex is forced upon them by their ANS in order to reproduce, whereas love is the result of intimacy and sharing. All beings are forced to have sex, regardless of specie, therefore, when the couple’s sex life is on the wane and his ANS incites him to look at younger women, they’ll both know what’s happening and he will categorically refuse to take Viagra or give in to his ANS. They are fortunate to be intimate with each other, both intellectually and physically, so when they hit the WALL, having always refused to let their libido define them as humans, she may even be able to poke fun at him when he starts looking sideways at younger women.

Their love will grow as their family grows, and not much self-control will be needed to resist having sex with a stranger. Why would he knowingly risk losing the warmth and joy that a loving family provides and that took years to build, for the pleasure of having sashimi served by a young geisha? One thing is certain, as their mutual affection grows, and as they go gaga over their grandchildren, they’ll both know that destroying their family life for a furtive romp in the sack with another is totally insane. Love will win over sex, especially if they are fully aware of the pressures that the ANS is putting on them, and they are.

If they’re really lucky, they’ll discover that one of the most beautiful things in the world, is growing old gracefully. An older woman sitting at her computer writing her book, nursing an animal back to health in her veterinarian clinic, or giving TLC to the plants in her garden, are beautiful sights to behold. And what about an older man teaching his grandson how to build a tree house, or his granddaughter how to play violin! What’s so bad about growing old? Does the woman have to become a wrinkled Barbie, or the man a ridiculous Casanova?

 

 

57-EMANCIPATION OF WOMEN

 

3mya, when hominids became intelligent, it meant they had the ability to connect past experiences with future actions. Naturally, they were no longer subjected to the laws of natural selection. So, after many millennia of sexual frustration, the lower order males were now able to devise ways to outsmart the alpha male in order to access the females and fornicate. Realizing that they could experience sexual pleasure without waiting for the females to be in estrus, the males started forcing themselves on the physically weaker gender at will. In time, the genetic pool deteriorated, and it proved to be a double catastrophe for the females, for the males now started to be selective as well.

The males, however, shouldn’t be blamed for this turn of events. Intelligence allowed them to follow the path of least resistance in order to give free expression to their sexual drive, and they simply took it. Like water and electricity, and other forces in the universe, humans are wired to take the path of least resistance. But in order for intelligent individuals to live in a group, there has to be rules and controls. In the natural selection environment of old, the male alpha used muscle in order to establish order, spread the best genes and ensure the survival of the group, but when hominids left that world, those controls disappeared, and humans had to devise new ones. Around 5kya, they did just that by creating writing, reading, and religion.

Nonetheless, women kept being treated like inferior beings. They were used as field hands and baby machines, and they were sold and bought in sophisticated ways by means of a dowry or a bride price. If the fathers wanted to get rid of extra daughters, they paid a dowry, if a family wanted to achieve a higher social rank by associating with a higher-ranking family through marriage, it paid a bride price. Women had no say, they could be marketed at any age, and all that mattered was that they be a virgin. Of course, making sure the young girls remained virgins meant they were even more mistreated by their fathers and even their brothers. On the other hand, if women learned to read and write, they were perceived as a threat to males, and the macho society would accuse them of witchcraft, burn them at the stake, or send them to rot in convents or some such place.

It was only in 1600CE, when the world of credit took root in Amsterdam, that women began entertaining the possibility of emancipation. When the Sephardim and the Huguenots created the East India Company in Amsterdam, in 1602, they ruled the oceans of the world and slowly wrenched world financial power away from the Holy Roman Empire, the Christian Church, in the process. In 1688, they moved their headquarters to the City in London, and created the first democracy. Women did not yet vote and weren’t allowed to own property, but they started earning money in their homes. When Mayer created his bank, the Bank of North America in 1781, it was another major step forward for women. But the real change occurred when Mayer’s son, Nathan, took control of the Bank of England in 1810. It marked the beginning of international banking, and as more credit was made available to the masses, women started working for wages, and were thus gradually emancipated in a real sense. Nonetheless, women had to wait until 1920 in order to get the right to vote, but when they did, it was a point of no return. Once the macho world was undermined, it was only a question of time before women could claim social equality. And when the pill was marketed in the 60’s, it put them on the road to full emancipation.

But the post-war years, as far as female emancipation is concerned, was also a time when the proverbial dung hit the fan, for that’s when women opted to wear the badge of femininity instead of insisting on equality. They chose the worst remedy of all by concentrating their efforts on getting themselves an alpha male by means of seduction in order to advance their social position. But who can blame them for using that approach? After going through 3my of mistreatment, and especially 2ky of macho Christian doctrine, they were totally brainwashed into thinking they were inferior to men. So, they figured if they seduced and snagged an alpha male like they were genetically programmed to have, they could achieve emancipation through him. Unfortunately, they didn’t realize that the alpha male of the natural selection era no longer existed. They didn’t know that the men prancing around looking like male alphas were mainly interested in advancing their own agenda. And the fact that Hollywood was endorsing sexual relationships with virtual alphas as the ultimate form of social success, and the fact that sex was on everybody’s mind, was not meant to help. Understandably, it was only natural for the pseudo alpha males to have sex as often as they could with the want-to-be bimbos by telling them how wonderful and needed they were, and the females believed them.

Though it was natural for the women to adopt the badge of femininity in wanting to look like the Hollywood stars and get themselves an alpha, they soon realized they weren’t getting the desired results and wondered why. That’s when they discovered that aging was an even bigger problem. They deduced that males stopped wanting to have sex with them when they reached menopause. But why didn’t men like mature partners like women did? They simply didn’t know that males are genetically polygamous and programmed to reproduce well past middle age, and that if the female is no longer able to reproduce, the male’s ANS no longer incites him to have sex with her. After suffering mistreatment at the hands of males for 3my, and being subjected to Christian macho doctrine for 2ky, now that she was emancipated, she was being hit with a third bolt of lightning, the genetic quirks of the male’s ANS.

How are women expected to deal with this genetic injustice? That is the question. If women completely discarded the badge of femininity, men and women, the women leading the way, would be more inclined to have genuine relationships based on trust, honesty and respect, instead of sex. But because we left the world of natural selection, because we live in a world of plenty, because we give free rein to our sex drive instead of curbing it, because we measure our self worth against our libido, because we fornicate mainly for pleasure, because men are genetically polygamous and live by the rules of monogamy, our specie has become unnatural and stressed.

We have to get back to some form of equilibrium, and perhaps the only way to do that is to understand our ANS as explained in an earlier posting. If we choose to be monogamous and have a family, it must be for life. We don’t have to get married, for we have the wherewithal to have sex while avoiding pregnancy and disease, but if we do, it should be for the duration and for the purpose of raising a family. Loving and nurturing one’s children, and later, one’s grand-children, is the greatest human experience of all, but we have to make it happen, it’s not free. Forever wanting more, bigger and better stuff in order to feel important, and changing pseudo life partners on a whim is not the way to go. If we choose to be bonded with another, the strength gained in sharing makes us feel secure, gives us confidence and encourages us to do what we love to do. And as we age, the love and satisfaction generated within the family largely compensates for the effort required to keep our sexual drive under control. Sex is not love. Sex is a violent temporary action imposed on us by our ANS while love is the art of being intimate and sharing the joys of raising a family over a whole lifetime.

55-TAMING OUR ANS

 

When Christianity was created in 325CE on the premise that we were godlike creatures, not animals, it did everything it could to make us ignore our ANS. Our Judeo-Christian world was built in a scientific vacuum, and if science plays such a large part in our world today, it’s thanks to the Huguenots and Sephardim who created the Bank of England in 1694, and Mayer Amschel Rothschild, an Ashkenazi, who created the Bank of North America in 1781. Those bankers who were now sure of being repaid for the first in the history of man then invested in R&D at will. Today, the world of plenty being the result of those investments, most of us are mesmerized by the good life we experience or should experience, and willingly ignore that we must answer to our ANS on a daily basis like all animals on earth. It is almost impossible to put ourselves in the situation of the Andes Crash Disaster where normal well-educated people were forced to resort to cannibalism in order to survive.

We are genetically programmed to go to extremes to survive, and we will eat our fellow humans, drink our urine, and have sex in most violent ways in order to do so. In order to survive, we have a few minutes to get air, a few days to get water, and a month or so to get food. But since we live in a world of plenty, where even in the worse case, like in Africa, we have access to air, water and food, we spend too much time thinking about the pleasures linked to reproduction.

As for urination and defecation, since early twentieth century, there are toilets everywhere and we take those bodily functions in stride. Of the five bodily functions that demand our constant attention, hunger, thirst, defecation, urination and sexual drive, the latter creates the most havoc in our lives because it is the only one we haven’t learned to control with our modern brain. As recent as two hundred years ago, we spent most of our time looking for food, water and shelter, and we thought of sex in a timely fashion. Today, it’s a complete reversal, we have a lot of time on our hands and we spend an inordinately amount of that time dealing with everything relating to our sex drive and wondering how attractive others think we are. Needless to say, it creates quite an imbalance in our lives, and it’s causing us a lot of grief.

We started using tools around 3 million years ago, and by the time we mastered the art of fire making, around 1mya, we were still hunters and gatherers. The ability to make tools and fire was a considerable advance in our evolution, but it was only when we decided to settle down, some 20 thousand years ago, that we started being the humans we are today. That’s when we unwittingly started to respond to our ANS in an organized way. We began planting and growing food in order to store it and avoid famine down the road. We built shelters close to a good water supply, on land where things grew, and realizing that there was strength in numbers, we started associating with other groups.

As hamlets grew, humans soon realized that they had to do something about their body waste. Stench and pestilence had to be dealt with if they planned on living together. As wanderers, it was something they had never thought about. But now, they had to think not only about growing food and having a steady supply of clean water, but also of getting rid of human waste that fouled their living space. However, it was only until very recently, at the very end of the 19th century, that thirst, hunger, urination and defecation, our main ANS imperatives, were dealt with in a systematic way. That was when electricity made tap water and water treatment plants common place and when grocery stores abounded.

We may have learned to deal with thirst, hunger, urination and defecation, but we definitely haven’t regarding sex. When we started growing food some 20kya, life got easier, and since sex was a source of intense pleasure, the males did what came naturally by devoting more time to sexual encounters. Instead of learning to control their sex drive, they gave it free rein. And the stronger and wilier males, realizing that dominating the physically weaker females, whether in estrus or not, was a way of experiencing sexual pleasure, did just that.

Prior to our breaking the time barrier, the alpha males dominated the lower order males, and the alpha females dominated the lower order females in order to establish hierarchy within the group. The alpha male serviced all the females when they were in estrus, hence willing, and everybody was happy except for the lower order males, for being deprived of reproduction privileges meant they were deprived of sexual pleasure. Since sexual pleasure is Mother Nature’s way of forcing us to reproduce, and since the males had no access to the females, they were frustrated. But after we left the world of natural selection, the lower order males found ways to outwit the alpha and started to physically dominate the females in order to get sexual pleasure. It was a complete reversal of fortune for the female gender. Now, all the lower order males could find ways to dominate the females whom they treated as sex objects, reproducers and field hands. The female ceased to be an equal partner, and we still see remnants of that social behavior in todays society. It could be said that intelligence is what caused this mess, and only by using intelligence can we re-establish a true social equilibrium.

Things did get a little better for women 5kya. As leisure time became more plentiful, there were more idle males, and they developed reading and writing, which in turn gave rise to religions. It was still very much a macho world, but the threat of bad gods who were aware of the males’ atrocious behavior and who could send them to hell or some such place after death, made them sit up and listen. When the Christian religion was created in 325CE, it started enforcing the concept of monogamous unions, and thereon in, the males had to put their penis in check when they went into society, although they could still do what they wanted at home.

53-BADGE OF FEMININITY

Before breaking the time-barrier and becoming intelligent, that is, in the pre-sapiens era, all women got the services of an alpha male who fought for that right. Sexually, the females were all fulfilled while most of the males were frustrated. But after we left the world of natural selection, women experienced a total reversal of fortune. That’s when the males found ways of outwitting the alpha male and started forcing themselves on the physically weaker females. To make matters worse, males not only associated sex with pleasure, but they also wanted as many healthy male offspring as possible in order to help them hunt and fight off their rivals. Moreover, as natural selection waned, the genetic pool deteriorated. The males became more selective and preferred females endowed with good childbearing attributes, that is, young with big bosom and generous hips. When all is said and done, the day we broke the time barrier some three million years ago, it was not a good day for the females.

Women never had a chance to fight back until the great wonderful world of credit got rolling in the early part of the 20th century. That’s when they started moving to the cities and working in factories and offices. They earned pitiful wages, often pinched by their fathers, but they still managed to put the odd nickel away in order to buy silk stockings or a coveted tube of lipstick. They felt that if they painted up to look young and beautiful like the kept women depicted in paintings hanging on museum walls, or the public sexy women in Hollywood films, they would have a better chance of getting an alpha male like they were genetically programmed to have. In spite of the fact they were using a vulgar, unnatural and hopeless approach, there was hardly a female who didn’t adopt the badge of femininity.

The badge of femininity consists of wearing lipstick and mascara, showing cleavage and enhancing the buttocks with the help of high heels. It is perceived as a badge of independence and freedom, and because humans are 100% animal of the ape family, younger females can’t wait to wear it and be ‘liberated’. Today, if a woman walks into her workplace without her badge, she will be challenged by the other females and accused of being slovenly. It’s a form of competition. If the women with less sex appeal force the pretty foxy ones to paint up like they themselves do, the physical differences between them will be less noticeable. But it gets worse. Males also get involved in this competition because they too are apes. Men despise makeup for the most part, but if females make a point of wearing the badge of femininity, they want the one who has the most attractive one. Her badge becomes his badge. Makeup is ludicrous to the point where women don’t want to be seen not wearing any by their mates when they go to bed at night, and make sure they have it on before their mates see them in the morning. The bottom line is, who, at the personal level, be they husbands or children, can feel fuzzy-wuzzy towards a woman wearing a mask, and in the workplace, take a made-up clown or a bimbo seriously. Women must reclaim their natural look, walk with their head held high, and find a real mate who loves them for who and what they are. That will not happen if they make a point of wearing the badge 24/7.

Women want parity, and it’s totally warranted, but how can it be achieved? Let’s say an employer wants to hire an accountant. The first candidate is a female wearing the badge of femininity, the second is a male wearing tight pants and displaying a hairy chest, and the third one is a nondescript male wearing a suit. Assuming they are all equally qualified, the first one will be hired if the employer wants to decorate the office, the second will be hired if he happens to like pretty boys, but the third will be hired strictly because he’s an accountant. To be sure, there are situations where men and women are not meant to compete, but in our world of robotics and AI, women definitely can compete in most areas without having to look like clowns or playing the role of bimbos.

Many would dearly like to help women achieve parity and have them take their rightful place, for it would make for a better world. Needless to say, if we lived in a matriarchate like elephants do, or returned to the world of our wild cousins, the problem wouldn’t exist. But that’s not the case, and the problem at hand is to find a way to reverse the perceived need to wear the badge of femininity. Maybe doing things like legislating against beauty contests for little girls would be a start. Who remembers JonBenet Ramsey, the six-year-old pageant winner who was found strangled in the basement of her house. What about the ‘glitz pageants’ where prepubescent bodies wear hair extensions, heavy makeup, press-on nails, and high heeled shoes. The enhancements are not only encouraged, they are necessary to win. Judges will even deduct points for contestants who don’t wear teeth covers that hide their jack-o-lantern smiles. Many good Christian women don’t see anything wrong turning their 6-year-old daughter into a sex object. If the ordinary mother remains undecided, she should ask herself why she doesn’t allow her 10-year-old daughter to wear make-up. If she ponders over the matter, she will soon realize that all females should do away with the badge of femininity.

Nonetheless, there is hope in that a growing number of women, who have reached their rightful place in the scientific, academic and medical fields, refuse to wear the badge of femininity. It seems that education is the key to the true emancipation of women. We can never go back to the world of natural selection where genuine alphas do what’s best for the group. So, women have to learn to find a mate on the basis of honesty, trust and compatibility, and they can’t do that unless they discard their badge of femininity and show their true self.

Since women are the main victims of the ongoing twisted sexual revolution, they are more apt to want to initiate change, and if change is to occur, educating young girls is the best way to get started. If girls are made fully aware that we are no longer part of the world of natural selection, if they understand their ANS (future posting), and if they know how this great wonderful world of credit was created, they’ll naturally want to take advantage of it by establishing lasting relationships based on basic human values, and the boys will have no choice but to follow.

 

 

P.S.

 

Women wear the badge because they don’t like their self image for whatever reasons, and the badge makes them feel pretty and feminine. Since they aspire to be like everyone else, and since wearing the badge is an accepted world-wide calamity, they just wear it without thinking how vulgar and unnatural it is. As we go forward in this consumer world, the more stupid and phoney we become. The women don’t even know that they wear the badge in order to get a pseudo male alpha just like the public and kept women of the world that she sees on museum walls and the big screen seem to get. Since all perceived successful seductresses wear the badge, why not her?

On the other hand, males don’t mind looking at racoon-eyed ladies with fellatio-inviting lips who let their boobs hang out while jacking up their butts with high heels, and they’ll diddle them every chance they get. They are not too fond of all that messy stuff they wear, but since most girls wear make-up, they just try to get the most striking one, mostly to impress their buddies. If a girl wears the badge, they know she’s sexually alert and won’t undermine their male ego. But if they see one without the badge, they just know she’s a ball-breaker and steer clear. Males will take the path of least resistance every chance they get, being quite content just to have a sexual relationship. So why do women keep wanting to be ugly and phoney bimbos and keep insisting on playing on this uneven playing field, when being natural offers such great advantages. Bimboism and parity are definitely incompatible.

 

15-DAVID TO ROTTERDAM

Mayer lived near the waterfront and often walked down to the river’s edge to listen to the hustle and bustle of ships being loaded and unloaded. This was a good place to think. Mayer was very interested in trade generally, and he was mesmerized by all the exotic merchandise coming from unheard-of parts of the world, but he saw it with the eyes of a banker, not those of a merchant.

The only bank in existence was the Bank of England, and it was a bank model Mayer wanted to duplicate. It was made up of a group of private bankers who had the exclusive right to lend money to the English Government. If the people’s representatives wanted to launch a government project before taxes were collected, as was always the case, they went to the bankers for a loan. It was a bankers’ heaven, for not only were they sure of being repaid, but they could choose what loans were to be made. And by having the sole right to issue bank notes, they controlled the monetary system of England.

Mayer was already a banker of sorts for Prince William, and he took his commitment to the Principality of Hanau very seriously. However, it didn’t stop him from planning to bankroll his own operations. His plan had to do with the Hessian troops being recruited for England. William was spending much too much money outfitting and arming those troops. Military supplies came mainly from France and England and were shipped through Bremerhaven up north. Because William didn’t buy directly from the suppliers, and because the route was long and crossed many German states, everything cost much more than it should. If Mayer had someone in Rotterdam buy everything directly from the suppliers, and if he then transported everything in his own barges up the Rhine River, he would make a handsome profit while lowering his benefactor’s costs. Even though this meant doing business, the risk was almost nonexistent, and it was a way of seriously increasing his capital.

For a hundred years now, since the Treaty of Westphalia, the Rhine River had been open to free trade. It was forbidden for local lords to collect tolls, and most of the castles along the Rhine River had been put out of commission prior to the treaty. Nonetheless, renegade lords still collected tolls, and that hampered inland commerce. But Mayer knew that if his barges flew the Hesse-Kassel colors, no one would dare stop them and make them pay, for everybody knew that the State of Hesse had a lot of troops at the ready.

Frankfurt was a port on the Main River, a river that flowed into the great Rhine River a few kilometers to the west. Mayer had talked with the shipbuilders in Hanau about getting large barges built, proposing a model like that once used by the Romans to bring in wheat from Gaul. It was a large barge about thirty-five meters long, six meters wide, with a draught of one meter, which could carry around twenty tons. It had a cabin in the back for cooking and sleeping, a square sail in the middle, and it allowed for ten oarsmen. The local mariners all agreed such a barge was ideal for travelling upstream on the Rhine. Upon leaving Rotterdam, it could run with the tide, and then the sail could be used to run with the prevailing west wind while the rowers pulled and steered as needed. Of course, sailing downstream from Frankfurt would be a lot easier.

Such a barge was affordable to build and a cost-effective way to transport goods, even with a ten-man crew. Mayer would start with one barge and have more built as needed. He would establish a counting house in Rotterdam where his broker would fill orders and have the goods waiting for the next barge. When the barge arrived, the goods coming from Frankfurt would be unloaded and stored in a warehouse, and the military supplies waiting in another warehouse would be loaded unto the barge headed for Frankfurt. All special orders for exotic products purchased from the East India Company would be unloaded in Frankfurt, Hanau or some port on the Rhine, while the military supplies would go to Hanau.

The Huguenots who had settled in the Hesse region more than a hundred years before were great entrepreneurs, and among other things, they set up foundries that produced high quality iron. They also made stylish furniture, glassware, tin ware, leather products, fine silks, and clocks. They even manufactured artillery pieces, called serpentines, known for their precision and durability. In Hanau, the Goldsmiths’ House was actually an art center for the training of goldsmiths and silversmiths. Lithographers, engravers and artisans developed and used the latest techniques in the making of jewelry, in printing and in the minting of very attractive coins. Mayer knew that the manufactured products coming out of Hesse would be sure to sell easily in Rotterdam.

All goods at both ends would be bought at the lowest cost and sold at the highest price, making sure that the highest price was the price that everybody was willing and ready to pay. The considerable profits thus realized would remain in the counting houses at either end, and would be used to buy ever more merchandise going in both directions. There would be a considerable buildup of specie at both ends, and the counting houses could then start printing their own bills of exchange. Since both counting houses would always adhere to a strict code of ethics imposed by Mayer, where the bills would be redeemed on demand at all times, they would gain the confidence of the local business community and become widely accepted. The increased credit would allow more businessmen to do more business, and profits would increase. Bills of exchange had a multiplier effect, and that was what banking was all about.

All he needed was to find a man who would want to go and settle in Rotterdam. As for the amount of money needed to build the barges and fill the initial orders at both ends, it was insignificant, considering his already considerable wealth. The first name that crossed his mind for the job in Rotterdam was that of young David Schiff. Since David and his wife Hannah lived upstairs in the same house, Mayer knew them well, and he had taken the young man under his wing. David had proven to be brilliant in the bills of exchange business.

Of late, David had been showing signs of unrest. He didn’t like the idea of his family growing up in the Judengasse ghetto, and Mayer could understand why. David didn’t come right out and say it, but Mayer knew. David had spoken of Rotterdam as being an attractive place to live, but what he didn’t know was that it had many drawbacks for an Ashkenazi Jew. The Sephardi Jews, who ran the East India Company and ruled the oceans of the world, were wealthy Jews from the Iberian Peninsula. They were rich, proud and even arrogant. Those Jews didn’t think very highly of Ashkenazim coming from Eastern Europe. However, if David accepted, Mayer would give him enough money to settle in properly, for projecting an image was very important. But there was another problem in that the Sephardim didn’t worship the way Ashkenazim did, and David wouldn’t be welcome in their synagogue. No matter, he would make David an offer while making it very clear what problems his family was going to face.

The ghetto was flourishing. The people were vibrant and united, and their faith made them strong. Judengasse had a fine stone synagogue, plenty of good clean water, good sewers, a fine hospital, its own kosher slaughterhouse, a yeshiva and a rabbi who was a prince of knowledge. Though the inhabitants were often harassed and humiliated when they left the ghetto and were not free to move about at night and on Sundays, in many ways they were better off than the goys living outside the ghetto.

David agreed that the community was one big family, but he was overcome by feelings of hate and revenge when a goy treated his wife Hannah like a whore. One day he would retaliate, and his life and that of Hannah would be compromised. When Mayer offered to set him up in a fine counting house with all the money needed to hire a professional staff, purchase warehouse space, build a house for his family, and have all the necessary expense money to look like a successful businessman, he couldn’t believe his good fortune.

David readily accepted the generous offer but wondered how he could ever repay Mayer. Mayer told him that he would be making his weight in thalers many times over, and repayment didn’t enter the picture. He told David that though Ashkenazim in Rotterdam were poor and were assisted by the community, and that the Sephardim wouldn’t be happy welcoming another Jewish ‘rag dealer’, ‘another mouth to feed’, things would be different for David. Mayer would introduce him to an Italian Jew named Moses Montefiore, a well-connected Sephardi who would help him get established.
