  • The sexual abuse of little boys and young male adolescents, and of children in general by men is widespread in the Muslim world, and sanctioned by their culture. 
  • Deprived of contact with females who are not their wives or immediate relatives, men have developed customs where boys are victimized to satisfy their needs. 
  • Nobody stops it because men have the power in these societies, and they or their male relatives and friends are the perpetrators.
  • Western irrational protection of Islamic culture, along with a coverup of its true nature, has prevented this and other depraved and criminal practices from being denounced by our governments and media.
  • Worse, by being silent, and even by enabling these practices, our governments  and media have become fully complicit with these crimes against children. 
  • The Muslim custom of female sexual mutilation continues unabated in the USA and Europe.  Our authorities do not want to offend the perpetrators in an age of multiculturalism. 
  • Incidentally, the government of France, with its growing Muslim population, is considering passing a law that would lower the age of sexual consent to 13. 
  • This would accommodate the Muslim custom of marrying children and would allow the claim of consent in cases of child rape.   A French judge recently dropped charges of rape against a 28 year old Muslim man because he claimed his 11 year old victim had consented. 
  • The prophet Mohammad set the example by marrying a nine year old girl. 

Pentagon IG: U.S. Troops May Be Punished for Stopping Child Rape by Afghan Soldiers
by Edwin Mora, Breitbart News
American service members in Afghanistan have relatively recently been officially required to report when U.S. taxpayer-funded Afghan security forces sexually abuse young boys, but they are “not obligated” to intervene and may be criminally punished for doing so, according to an audit by the Pentagon inspector general (IG).

Moreover, one American service member told that the IG U.S. troops were told to “ignore” the ancient pedophilic Afghan custom known as bacha bazi, or “playing with boys,” confirming the findings of a New York Times (NYT) article issued in September 2015. 

Bacha Bazi - The Dancing Boys of Afghanistan 2The IG notes that reporting the incidents is necessary when a soldier actually observes child rape, and the soldier can intervene at that moment. Any action taken outside of actually witnessing the crime could result in disciplinary action.
 
“There’s no recourse to stop them from bacha bazi. Soldiers [were] told to ignore it and drive on,” said the service member.  Referring to the chain of command, another U.S. troop told the auditor, “The initial reaction of the staff was ‘we don’t really care about this, and we’re not going to do anything about it.'”

THE TRUE HISTORY OF THANKSGIVING - VIDEO - How the initial policy of collective farming drove Pilgrims to starvation - Even Marxist countries have been forced to allow private farming to avoid starvation

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The pilgrims almost starved because they were forced to farm “collectively” at first.  The corporation that funded the expedition said, “grow food together, divide the harvest equally.” That mantra didn’t last long.
 
Failure of collectivism, now called socialism, is evident in how countries that adhere to the Marxist ideology policy of working the land collectively (such as China, North Korea, Cuba, and many others) eventually have to allow some private farms to operate in order to increase production to avoid starvation.  
 
Human nature demands that there be a selfish incentive for us to be more disciplined, effective, and innovative with our resources - eventually resulting in a higher standard of living for all.

  • During their centuries of conquests Muslims captured and enslaved millions of Africans.  
  • To this day Islam endorses the ownership of non-Muslim slaves, and slavery is still openly practiced in Muslim African countries and in some Arab countries.  
  • Millions of Africans are made into slaves, or are born into slavery TODAY.  
  • There are slave markets in Muslim Libya, where non-Muslim migrants are bought and sold.   CNN caused a stir with their investigative reporting on the matter.
  • But Afro-American activists are peculiarly silent about the slave trade going on RIGHT NOW in Africa.   Although white people no longer own slaves, they are an easy target for accusations of racism.  And while Muslim Africans and Arabs still own black slaves, progressives are silent about it because it's not politically correct to criticize them.

  • MEN AS EVIL PIGS - A string of allegations and accusations against heterosexual men happens in the context of a vicious feminist war against men. 
  • This war has intensified in the last few years to the point where masculinity itself - the mental and physical attributes of the American male - is being defined as "toxic" and "supremacist," among other denigrating terms. 
  • Feminists are intent on fixing this situation by feminizing men from early childhood on. It's not that feminists want to make gender optional. Their unspoken agenda is that of crushing masculinity altogether.
  • This current spate of denunciations of powerful and famous men for objectionable acts of a sexual nature fits neatly into that anti-masculine mindset.
  • CAVEAT - This article does not try to excuse bad behavior, or to condone silence about it.
  • However, we need to reflect on how allegations are being used as political weapons, as personal revenge, and as a means to profit from financial settlements.
  • The accusations don't have to be true.  And as actual weapons, they can even kill
  • Wales Assembly member Carl Sargeant committed suicide a few days ago as a result of women's allegations of sexual harassment.
  • The mainstream media hardly ever tell you about sexual misconduct by Democrats, but there is plenty of it.
  • Now a Pandora's box has opened and the media's pets - Democrats, celebrities, and homosexuals - are being exposed as predators.  
  • Congressmen condemning Judge Moore for misbehaviour in his youth, are in a great majority guilty of current sexual harassment themselves, as new investigation discovers a culture of sexual abuse of women in Congress, including Congresswomen.  Taxpayers have paid $15 MILLION in secret settlements with Congress victims of harassment and discrimination. 
I have collected a few recent headlines that demonstrate that NOBODY IS SAFE NOW.   Many men in Washington DC are now losing sleep in fear that any of the women they offended or abused in the past will now decide to speak out. 
Joe Biden can't seem to control himself.  But some Democrats still see him as a possible presidential candidate in 2020.

UPDATE NOVEMBER 16:  OOPS, now it's top Democrat Senator Al Franken's turn to be accused of sexual harassment -and there is a photo to prove it -  Who will be next in Congress?
Leeann Tweeden and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN).
Journalist Leann Tweeden Accuses Sen. Al Franken of Fondling, Kissing Her Without Consent
She is accusing Senator Al Franken (D-MN) of fondling her while asleep and shoving his tongue down her throat without her consent.   According to Tweeden, the unwanted kiss occurred during rehearsal for a USO skit. She believes Franken (who was married) intentionally wrote a skit for the two of them so he would have an excuse to kiss her, something she did not want to do. She says that Franken insisted they rehearse until it got uncomfortable and she relented. This is when she alleges he “aggressively” shoved his tongue in her mouth:

DOWN WITH WHITE PEOPLE? - DREAMING OF A WORLD WITHOUT WHITES AND THEIR CULTURE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We are watching a slow motion train wreck with pieces flying all over the place in successive explosions.  
 
What is being destroyed is western civilization.  Not that it has ever been perfect.  There were horrendous periods that fill us with shame, and there are still many challenges to overcome.  But perfection is impossible, and when we weight the positive against the negative, western civilization's positive contributions largely outweigh the negative ones.
 
The sins of slavery keep being mentioned to deepen white guilt, but the fact is that slavery practiced by Arabs, Africans, and every other culture in the world has always existed.  
 
Muslims captured and enslaved millions of Africans, and thousands of Europeans too. 
 
To this day Islam endorses the ownership of non-Muslim slaves, and slavery is still practiced in Muslim African countries.  Millions of Africans are made into slaves, or are born into slavery TODAY.  Afro-American activists are peculiarly silent about the slave trade going on RIGHT NOW in Africa. 
 
The ongoing Arab Slave Trade: 
 
Just try to find ONE - just one country or culture that is free from shameful historical periods, one that currently respects human rights more than the West, one that has contributed at least as much to science, technology, philosophy, health, education and personal and national freedom. 
 
Zoom into your own life:  From the moment you wake up till you go to bed at night you are making use of western technology, from your coffee machine, to your car, to your cell phone, to your convenient credit card .... 
 
Your children get educated regardless of their gender or economic status.  You can walk the streets unafraid of being picked up by government thugs, arrested, tortured, incarcerated. 
 
You can criticize the government, read any book you want, listen or play any music you want,  marry whoever you want, and express your political thoughts in public. 
 
Think for a moment what the world would have been like had western civilization and white people never existed.  Start erasing in your imagination all of western contributions, one by one, and see what you are left with. 
 
Maybe we would be happier living in shacks, using the fields as a toilet, having a life expectancy of 30 or 40 years, and being completely defenseless against nature's onslaughts.  
 
Maybe we would be happier without white racism and white privilege, without having to suffer from micro-aggressions, or struggle with university courses such as math, physics, history, and philosophy, that are too reflective of white culture. 
 
But don't despair.  The white race will eventually disappear.  Whites are just not making enough babies, and their demise will be due to demographic and cultural suicide, not violent genocide.  Europe and North America will eventually be dominated by non-western ideologies, cultures, and populations. 
 
What will society be like in the future? 
We westerners will get what we deserve, having failed to protect and defend our heritage.  But there will be truly innocent victims.
 
Considering how animals are treated by non-western cultures, they will be the main victims.  Africans massacre the dwindling elephant population for its ivory, and eat other wildlife as "bush meat". 

The Chinese kill the last tigers to obtain medicinal parts, and admit that they eat anything that moves. 
 
People in South East Asia skin and cook dogs alive because they believe that the hormones they release under torture make the meat taste better.  Muslims regard dogs as unclean and treat them accordingly.  And on and on.... 
 
Animals and nature in general will suffer the most once the much hated western civilization and the white race are gone forever ....  Think about that.

THE DANGER OF MENTAL ILLNESS IN THE US spilling over into politics as hysteria, violent assaults, and even murder

Unauthorized duplication of this blog's material is prohibited.   Excerpts and links may be used, provided that full credit and link is given to Otters and Science News Blogspot.  Link to this post:  http://ottersandsciencenews.blogspot.ca/2017/11/the-danger-of-mental-illness-in-us.html - Thank you for visiting my blog.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • There is a sector of the American population that can be led to do anything, anywhere, and to anybody - all in the name of 'social justice'.  
  • Many fanatical anti-Trump people have surrendered their rationality and independent thinking, and have joined the herd in a process of mass self-hypnosis.  Some call it the Trump Derangement Syndrome.  
  • They truly believe that they are on the right side of history, and that even assassination is justified to produce the results they want.
  • Whether we are for or against Trump, this development should profoundly disturb us. 
  • It was evident during the Take Wall Street demonstrations of a few years ago.  Leaders chanted slogans and the crowd mindlessly echoed them, word by word, as kindergarten kids repeating after their teacher.  It was chilling.   
  • The following video is hard to believe.  A group of demonstrators - adult men and women with education, jobs, and families - scream at the sky because Donald Trump won the election a year ago. 
VIDEO - Protesters 'Scream At The Sky'
On Anniversary Of Trump Election
VIA CITIZENS FREE PRESS  (recommended site)
This atavistic display of hysterical irrationality should not be happening in our society.   Such a psychological state is dangerous, and has led to multiple instances of violence, including actual murder against Trump supporters.  
  • Let's remember that last June a man shot and injured Republican Congressmen at a baseball practice. 
  • Then there is the still puzzling mass murder at a music concert in Vegas.  An audience of country music fans is regarded as conservative and pro-Trump, a likely target. 
  • The man who recently murdered a group of Texas churchgoers had a history of mental illness, violence, hatred of religion, and was a strong supporter of Democrat causes.   
  • Just the other day a neighbor and fellow physician suddenly assaulted GOP Senator Rand Paul, although the two men had not spoken to each other in years. 
  • And there are hundreds of instances of unprovoked violent attacks by anti-fa thugs against peaceful pro-Trump and pro-free-speech demonstrators.
These attackers, as well as those groups crying and shouting hysterically against the powers that made Trump president, truly believe that something nefarious is happening to the country, and so it is their moral duty to say or do something to counteract it.    They are in a state of mass hysteria, and nobody could possibly reason with them.
Let's keep in mind that these generations:
  • have been using recreational drugs, some of them consistently, so that their brain has been altered;  
  • have been mesmerized by thousands of hours of screen unreality, such as violent video games and manipulative social media;
  • have been medicated when they were children, to make them more manageable in school;
  • have been indoctrinated from early childhood by leftist teachers and parents, and by the leftist media; 
  • may have inherited mental anomalies from their own parents, who underwent all of the above before them.  Epigenetic studies demonstrate that the traumatic effects of parental negative experiences can be inherited by their children, along with genes. 
The preceding items point to a process of unintended or deliberate mind programming.  The most vulnerable individuals now live in their own reality, oblivious to the seriousness of their mental state.
 
Statistics show that about 20% of Americans suffer from mental illness, but it does not take into account those still undiagnosed.    No gun control measures could possibly prevent these people from causing injury or death on those they consider their enemies.

Ukraine has no shame...
  • For 207 years Jewish Hasidim have been embarking on pilgrimages to  Rabbi Nachman of Breslov’s graveside in Uman, Ukraine.
  • Now in the wake of an increasing number of anti-Semitic incidents in Uman, his followers want to move his bones to a grave in Jerusalem.
  • Israeli diplomats have inquired with the Ukrainian government regarding moving Reb Nachman’s remains to Jerusalem, but Ukraine refuses to give up what has become a magnet for religious tourism. 
  • Around 50,000 Jewish pilgrims a year visit a site that otherwise would have no tourism interest whatsoever.  No Jews, no profit.
  • Ukrainians perpetrated recurrent genocidal massacres of Jews over the centuries, and many Jews regard their cruelty as much worse than that of the Germans.
  • Ukrainians sadistically mutilated and killed over 100,000 Jews in the Chmielnicki Massacre in the 17th century.  But the mass killings went on before and after that famous massacre. 
  • Ukrainians were enthusiastic collaborators of the Nazis, and helped round up and murder thousands of defenseless Jews during the Holocaust.
  • There remains a strong current of violent anti-Semitism in modern Ukraine, resulting in a steady migration of the remaining Jewish population into Israel.

ARE THEY ALIVE? - LIFELESS PARTICLES BECOME LIFE-LIKE BY SWITCHING BEHAVIOR IN A FIXED ENVIRONMENT, shows study by Emory University

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • A few years ago I read the science fiction novel WATERMIND by M.M. Buckner (2008). 
  • It described how electronic and assorted chemical waste dumped into a pond begins to organize itself into a neural net. 
  • I recommend this intriguing novel in spite of its few shortcomings.  The central idea is fascinating.   
And here comes the latest news on how 'lifeless stuff' behaves like living matter.

Physicists at Emory University have shown how a system of lifeless particles can become "life-like" by collectively switching back and forth between crystalline and fluid states -- even when the environment remains stable.


The Burton lab studies tiny, plastic particles as a model for more complex systems. The particles are suspended in a vacuum chamber filled with a plasma -- ionized argon gas.  Credit: Justin Burton, Emory University

Physical Review Letters recently published the findings, the first experimental realization of such dynamics.
 
"We've discovered perhaps the simplest physical system that can consistently keep changing behavior over time in a fixed environment," says Justin Burton, Emory assistant professor of physics. "In fact, the system is so simple we never expected to see such a complex property emerge from it."
 
Many living systems -- from fireflies to neurons -- switch behaviors collectively, firing on and then shutting off. The current paper, however, involved a non-living system: Plastic particles, tiny as dust specks, that have no "on" or "off" switches.
 
"The individual particles cannot change between crystalline and fluid states," Burton says. "The switching emerges when there are collections of these particles -- in fact, as few as 40. Our findings suggest that the ability for a system to switch behaviors over any time scale is more universal than previously thought."
