You can only find out what you actually believe (rather than what you think you believe) by watching how you act. You simply don’t know what you believe, before that. You are too complex to understand yourself.
Jordan Peterson

Out with stereotypes, feminism proclaims. But stereotypes are the west's stunning sexual personae, the vehicles of art's assault against nature. The moment there is imagination, there is myth.
Camille Paglia

Women select men. That makes them nature, because nature is what selects. And you can say "Well it's only symbolic that women are nature", it's like no, it's not just symbolic. The woman is the gatekeeper to reproductive success. And you can't get more like nature than that, in fact it's the very definition of nature.
Jordan Peterson

Woman is the dominant sex. Men have to do all sorts of stuff to prove that they are worthy of woman's attention.
Camille Paglia

There are powerful reasons why a woman should marry. For a man there are none: he does it out of gregariousness. (And it is therefore natural enough for the law to give men a better position in marriage than women.) 'But then, why do men marry?' I once asked the Abbé Mugnier. His answer was: 'Out of a taste for disaster.' Yes, it really is a love of risk, of danger, the dark and unhealthy attraction of trouble, which drives the male to bring this hornets' nest about his ears. If he jibs in the slightest, people accuse him of 'cowardice'—cowardice in this case being synonymous with that form of intelligence known as the instinct of self-preservation.
Henry de Montherlant, The Girls

Every man must define his identity against his mother. If he does not, he just falls back into her and is swallowed up.
Camille Paglia

We are all born for love. It is the principle of existence, and its only end.
Benjamin Disraeli

We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.
Orson Welles


  1. A bizarre incident has come to pass in Maharashtra’s Beed, where a clan of revenge-driven monkeys killed 250 dogs by dropping them down from buildings and treetops. The unseen fury had its roots from an incident in which a pack of dogs mauled a baby monkey to death.

    This baffling occurrence took place in Majalgaon in Beed district, a rustic town located 300 miles east of state capital Mumbai.


  2. Paul, I am sure you are not like this, but I know quite a few men who without wives/female partners would have no social contact with other human beings, would eat bacon all day, and would abandon basic hygiene. A man from my work was actually whining on a Zoom call to his colleagues that his entire routine had fallen apart once his wife left the house for three days. Men who are married live longer and it’s easy to see why.

    1. 'I know quite a few men who without wives/female partners would... eat bacon all day'

      Every day?

  3. "Discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want most."

  5. Please accept my Christmas Greetings and my best wishes for a happy and therefore a successful 2022. The future is still open, and, if there really is a reset button to be pressed, it applies at least as much to those who rule as to the ruled.

    His Beatitude Patriarch Theophilos III of Jerusalem and All Palestine spoke about the difficulties that the Christians of Jerusalem are currently experiencing, presenting on December 21, 2021 at a meeting with King Abdullah II of Jordan at the Al Husseiniya Palace. According to the well-established tradition, in the days preceding the celebration of Christmas, the Monarch of Jordan holds an event to which the heads and representatives of the Christian Churches of the Holy Land are invited.

    In his speech at the solemn event, the Primate of the Orthodox Church of Jerusalem emphasized the need to tell the world about about the threats that the Islamic and Christian holy sites are going through as a result of the ambitions of radical zionist groups in light of the lack of seriousness on the part of local authorities in Jerusalem in protecting those holy sites.

    He also mentioned the recent increase in attacks on Christians and Muslims living in and around Jerusalem.

    “Christians have become the target of repeated and continuous attacks by radical zionist groups, especially in the Holy City. Since the year 2012, countless crimes have been committed against Christians, including physical and verbal attacks against priests and clergy, attacks have been launched against churches, holy places have been vandalized and systematically desecrated, in addition to continuous intimidation of Christian citizens who all they want is to live normal lives as God has given them this right.” – said His Beatitude.

    The Primate of the Orthodox Church of Jerusalem expressed confidence that such actions of certain radical groups are dictated by their desire to expel Christians from Jerusalem and other parts of the Holy Land. He noted that Patriarchs and Heads of Churches in Jerusalem have decided to carry out an international campaign that would put the Christian world in the light of the violations being committed against the Holy City and its suburbs, because the Christian presence is being targeted by radical zionist groups in the city of Jerusalem, especially in Omar Ibn al-Khattab Square in Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem, which is the route of pilgrims to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and the various monasteries and churches, in addition to the radicals efforts to distort the cultural and historical identity of the New Gate area.

    “We raise our voice loudly at this time of Christ’s birth to confirm that the Holy Land is not only the land of the birth of Christ, but is the land of the launch of Christianity to the whole world.” – Patriarch Theophilos continued – “The entire Christian world is responsible for the survival of Christians in the Holy Land and the East in general.”
