The New Dumbness

The following is an excerpt from “The Underground History of American Education“, by John Taylor Gatto: Ordinary people send their children to school to get smart, but what modern schooling teaches is dumbness. It’s a religious idea gone out of control. You don’t have to accept that, though, to realize this kind of economy would be jeopardized by too many smart people who understand too much. I won’t ask you to take that […] Read more »

School as Religion

The following is an excerpt from “The Underground History of American Education“, by John Taylor Gatto: School is a religion. Without understanding the holy mission aspect you’re certain to misperceive what takes place as a result of human stupidity or venality or even class warfare. All are present in the equation, it’s just that none of these matter very much—even without them school would move in the same direction. Dewey’s […] Read more »

Camille Paglia Gives Feminists a History Lesson

Women need men, for it is through looking into the mirror of men that women are able to get to know and appreciate their own uniqueness better.  Conversely, men need women, for it is through looking into the mirror of women that men are able to get to know and appreciate their own uniqueness better. “When an educated culture routinely denigrates masculinity and manhood, then women will be perpetually stuck […] Read more »

Satan, Lucifer, and the Jesus Archetypes of Ego Development

Satan is the archetype of the undeveloped ego gone wild, Lucifer is the archetype of the ego masquerading as an enlightened being, and Jesus is the archetype of the ego having been fully integrated into the overall Self, called “Selfhood”.

The outward similarities […] Read more »

Nathan & Aline Discuss Jim Carrey’s Enlightened Antics

“There’s no meaning to any of this, so I wanted to find the most meaningless thing I could come to and join, and here I am. You’ve got to admit, [that] it’s completely meaningless.

Is the future of Star Wars more Gray than simply Dark vs Light?

I think we need to start looking at the Gray Jedi in light of Nietzsche’s concept of the Übermensch, who is a being that has transcended traditional group morality of good and evil, and has a higher individualistic morality based on their experiences to form a holistic perspective of the workings of life. An Übermensch has the ability to conceptualize and process so many angles, layers, and aspects of any […] Read more »

The Pre/Trans Fallacy

Aline and I run into this fallacy often, where people in the “pre-“ state of spirituality misunderstand the concept of unity, and perceive it as psychological enmeshment, much like the concepts of patriotism and/or group identification, and not in the “trans-“ state of psychological differentiation from a collective through achieving Selfhood.  Instead of doing the work to integrate and align their internal aspects of self, as a means of moving […] Read more »

Why I seem to Align more with the Political Right than with the Political Left

I would like to make something clear, not because I’ve been questioned, but because I feel it is worth addressing. Many people may think that I’m on the political right, but I’m not, I am a classical liberal (voluntaryist / ancap / Libertarian), which means I value individual rights, and I’m open to a wide range of viewpoints, and I synthesize them with systematic thinking into an overall worldview that […] Read more »
