"M. Thomas Inge defines agrarianism by the following basic tenets:
- Farming is the sole occupation that offers total independence and self-sufficiency.
- Urban life, capitalism, and technology destroy independence and dignity and foster vice and weakness.
- The agricultural community, with its fellowship of labor and co-operation, is the model society.
- The farmer has a solid, stable position in the world order. He "has a sense of identity, a sense of historical and religious tradition, a feeling of belonging to a concrete family, place, and region, which are psychologically and culturally beneficial." The harmony of his life checks the encroachments of a fragmented, alienated modern society.
- Cultivation of the soil "has within it a positive spiritual good" and from it the cultivator acquires the virtues of "honor, manliness, self-reliance, courage, moral integrity, and hospitality." They result from a direct contact with nature and, through nature, a closer relationship to God. The agrarian is blessed in that he follows the example of God in creating order out of chaos."
GMO patents for genetic seed sterilization [article]
"We've uncovered dozens of patents that disclose new and more insidious techniques for genetic sterilization of plants and seeds - and even animals," says Edward Hammond of RAFI. "Novartis, AstraZeneca, and Monsanto are among the Gene Giants who have sterile seeds in the pipeline, while others like Pioneer Hi-Bred, Rhone Poulenc, and DuPont have technologies that could easily be turned into Terminators." The primary goal of several of the the newly patented techniques is to sterilize seed so that farmers cannot save and re-plant seed.
As a woman driver, I am always more cautious around other woman driversOur society certainly includes many aspects of Huxley's Brave New World, but, I also think it includes aspects of Orwell's 1984. With the recent news coming from United Airlines regarding their hiring policy for pilots mandating that 50% of all pilots have to be women or blacks we have to include Idiotocracy too.
Although, I do prefer supporting female dentists, female nurses, female gynaecologists, female clothing designers, female mothers, etc.Our society certainly includes many aspects of Huxley's Brave New World, but, I also think it includes aspects of Orwell's 1984.

I think both world wars had a major impact on the susceptibility to feminism. Perhaps it was part of the agenda. Dehumanize through wars, kill the men, leave the women widowed, children orphans and then you have a mother and the grandmother, for instance trying to be both mother and father; impossible.In "Looking Backward" there's a paragraph where they say that women should be paid the same for less amount of work (because to each his/her ability)
Upper-class women of yesteryear didn't do much of anything. There's other threads talking about how feminism is largely an upper-class phenomena, which I agree with. The more moral ones end up supporting goofy causes because of empathy and guilt, and the more sociopathic ones try to steer them in their own direction.
I’ve been revisiting Roosh’s Babylon Road videos recently. When looking at the contrast between the beautiful nature captured on footage and the ugly, bland, and dirty American cityscapes, the impression that grew on me was that I was observing in limited fashion a glimpse into the nature of God versus that without God. The word that came to mind to describe all of the city structures was “sterile.”
I think in a broader sense, that describes everything without God. The fruits of any endeavor in the absence of God are unproductive and ultimately destructive in their very essence and lead to death. Men destroy themselves and others. The city destroys the natural land. The veneer of physical or social novelty soon degrades into rot and decay. Whatever life was present is sterilized, hollowed out, and replaced by death, never to produce life again.
By contrast, everything in the presence of God is fruitful and productive. On top of that, it is infinitely complex and variable. Even death itself in the natural world feeds and gives rise to an abundance of life.
On a basic level, I think this is what we’re dealing with: a spiritual force that seeks to impose a sterile existence and death, versus the Spirit that gives life. And there is no coexistence.
The survival of democracy depends on the ability of large numbers of people to make realistic choices in the light of adequate information. A dictatorship, on the other hand, maintains itself by censoring or distorting the facts, and by appealing, not to reason, not to enlightened self-interest, but to passion and prejudice, to the powerful “hidden forces,” as Hitler called them, present in the unconscious depths of every human mind.
- Democracy is a system that bases its decision on the number of votes, on quantity rather than quality. It is a system that has no fundamental understanding of concept of goodness.
- The very foundations of democracy are of a totalitarian nature - Democracy is the system in which anything is legitimate from the moment it is wanted by the majority.
- Modern democratic systems do not have, like democracy of ancient Athens, a kind of tribunal which assesses the quality and consequences of decisions made by magistrates.
"Sometimes in the coming century, people will rack their brains pondering how nations with tremendous scientific and intellectual achievements could have given uninstructed and untrained men and women the right to vote equally uninstructed and untrained people into responsible positions." -Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn
"Our Lord does not compliment us by calling us sheep.
Sheep are foolish and stupid animals, blind followers and devoid of the ability to keep themselves clean.
Our Lord’s parable tells us what we are and also that there is protection if we follow Him faithfully.
Jesus Christ alone defines the church, not man, and all man-made definitions of the church are an implicit warfare against Him."
"One faith, one law and one standard of justice did not mean democracy.Democracy
