Fundraising appeal: Martyred in the USSR

Please donate to help with the production of this film!

Donations are also tax deductible:

Martyred in the USSR: Militant Atheism in the former Soviet Union is a documentary about militant atheism in the former Soviet Union. It tells the personal, emotional and horrific story of what people went through simply because they chose to cling to their faith, even at the risk of death. It did not matter what religion you practiced, if you believed in God in the USSR you were persecuted, and persecuted brutally. From 1917 to 1990 people of faith were shot, executed, thrown in the gulag and left to die because the Soviet Government hated religion. What makes this story extremely important is that the new generation in Russia knows nothing about their past and will deny that the brutality ever happened.”

Max & Arran-Who-Is-Jewish: A Taxonomy of Jews based on E. Michael Jones

What is a Jew? There are many definitions. The definition given by Dr. E. Michael Jones in his “The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit” is fairly straightforward: he believes that what truly defines the Jews as a people is rejection of Jesus Christ and thus rejection of Logos. Taking this assumption at face value, Max and Red Pill Religion team member and administrator Arran Thompson, who is Jewish, as we discuss this idea.

 

Warning: RockingMRE and other Antitrinitarians are Anti-Christian Heretics

Is Trinitarianism Paganism? Is Catholic Christianity pagan? Or are those who deny the Holy Trinity really a tiny minority completely unrepresentative of mainstream Christian thought for the last 2000 years? Come as we analyze the errors of fact and reasoning of RockingMRE, and other Anti-Trinitarians.

Max + Reformed Christian Apologist The Sola Scriptura Debate

The #RedPillReligion crew attempts to defend all religions, but we especially defend our own, and most of us are #orthodox-type #Christians who believe in more than just #TheBible. We believe in something called Sacraments, Sacred Tradition (of which the Bible is an inseparable part), and the Deposit of the Faith. Reformed Christian Apologist is a Bible-only #Calvinist who doesn’t believe in Free Will. Listen to see how different these religions are! The crew intends to respond to some of the references he gave some time in the next week or so. In the meantime…

Max & John C. Wright: Religion in Culture: In History, vs. Now

What is the role of religion in Western history? Look at the pagan world of Greece and Rome, and compare that to Christendom, and then to the postchristian world of the postmodern post-rational post-honesty secular atheist — the basic myth of the Modern era is that this is an evolution, with each generation being wiser and more enlightened than the prior. In reality, the Moderns and the Postmoderns are more abnormal, more irrational, less open to persuasion by evidence, and less healthy morally and mentally than our pagan ancestors. With the loss of Christianity, our civilization loses the things that depend on Christian ideas for their basis, such as a belief in the natural rights and liberties of man and the ability of the universe to be examined by the scientific method. Since the Victorian Age, men have sought to place the Western worldview on a nonreligious foundation, with no success, but instead resulting in hellish nightmares without precedent in history: see Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia and Red China for examples. The non religious starting point meant to serve as a foundation has either been science worship, disguised as science, or various forms of immorality and anarchy, disguised as a love of freedom and liberty. Slavery has returned, now called ‘human trafficking.’ The pagan practice of exposing infants has returned in the form of a woman’s right to choose. Pagan excesses, which even pagans hated, of sexual deviancy are now considered rights as well, and the normal and chaste morality of decent people is considered a violation of civil rights if not a hate crime. One thing leads to another. If sin cannot be criticized, speech cannot be free, and, without free speech, other freedoms have no voice hence no defense. The attempt to base a culture on anything other than a religious worldview is doomed to failure: the thing defeats itself. Taking love of liberty as a starting point, with no context saying how liberty can be abused, one soon arrives at the absurdity of socialized liberty, where the collective dictates speech crimes and thought crimes, always in the name of liberty. See any modern college campus for details. Taking science as a starting point leaves one with a nihilistic world view, where good and evil, fair and foul, right and wrong, all turn into subjective matters of opinion, and science itself turns into a plaything of politics: see, for example, the Global Warming fraud, or the allegedly scientific belief that sex is a cultural construct, not a biological reality.

The Cailin Jeffers case and the APA’s guidelines for men and boys

During early April, 2017 a student at the University of Arizona, Cailin Jeffers, was the subject of a number of news stories (including the one here) about her experience with Northern Arizona University English professor, Dr. Anne Scott, who subtracted points from her college paper due to her use of the word “mankind” in reference to human beings.

Jeffers was kind enough to conduct a short text interview with me about her experience, which I hadn’t gotten around to publishing until now.

I also thought it was very relevant in the wake of the recent news about the American Psychological Association’s new guidelines on masculinity, since their guidelines (along with those of the Modern Language Association’s) are also used in writing academic papers.

In Jeffer’s case, her college professor subtracted points from her paper based of the MLA guidelines, which requires students to use gender-neutral language.

As Jeffers pointed out to me in our interview, “If I am required to use MLA format, and the MLA says we have to use gender-neutral language with their format, then that’s what we have to do.”

When she inquired with her English professor as to why she was marked down, her professor told her, “…it was something that both the MLA and the English department enforced.”

Jeffers also added, “the conversation was mainly focused on how ‘mankind’ does not mean ‘all people’ to all people, that words matter, and that this is something that all the other professors enforce.”

Jeffers also expressed that she felt the guidelines needed to be changed and added, “I understand using ‘he/she’ or ‘their’ in certain contexts (for example, ‘A good student should remember to bring his/her book.’). However, ‘mankind’ is gender-neutral. There is no reason to censor it because a FEW people find it offensive.”

Her college professor also received a number of death threats in response to her decision of following MLA guidelines, and Jeffers expressed she never wanted that to happen, and had nothing personal against her professor. Jeffers also emphasized, “she really is a great teacher.”

I was not able to reach Dr. Scott for comments, but Jeffers also let me know, “I don’t think she actually has a problem with the guidelines, based off of what she told me.”

The MLA’s guidelines are also relevant in the wake of the American Psychological Association’s recent change in guidelines on men and boys.

An essay I found posted on the EU website, Euro-Healthy, describes how it is that postmodernism relates to psychology.

The essay concludes that psychology is inherently postmodern in its rejection of grand-narratives, prioritization of utility, its search for a new legitimizing  principle, its ironic view of truth, and its acknowledgment of language games.

In the context of grand narratives, the essay’s author (whose name is not revealed) also mentions Wilhelm Wunt, who is regarded as the father of experimental psychology, as well as the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud.

Wunt’s laboratory, the author writes, “…was set up to find the objective truth behind human behaviour,” while the truth-seeking theories of Freud “…were thought to free people from their troubles and improve their standards of living.“

Postmodernism also largely helped to shape Fabian Socialism, which in turn was hugely influential in the formation of both the League of Nations and the United Nations.

So, it may come as no surprise to know the Modern Language Association is also affiliated with UNESCO, through its connection with the Oslo-based International Federation for Modern Languages and Literatures.

It could thus be argued that, in addition to pushing anti-Christian, postmodernist and Marxist narratives, the MLA and ALA are both helping to push the agenda of the United Nations through the public academic system in the United States.

It also my come as no surprise as to who some of the members of both organizations are.

Included on the member list of MLA Officers and the Executive Council are:


Members of the American Psychological Association’s Board of Directors include
:

There are other members listed of both the MLA and the APA, but I thought these individuals were particularly noteworthy, due to their obvious biases towards both Marxism and feminism. And I also found Diana Prescott’s affiliation with the Society of Psychological Hypnosis to be interesting.

I won’t dive off the deep end and imply that the writing guidelines are being used in part for the purposes of mass hypnosis, but…

And, pro-Israel Zionists who I communicated with online understood the implications of third-wave feminist and Boycott and Divestment Sanctions  supporter, Judith Butler being on the MLA’s membership list.

One may be of the opinion that Jeffers’ only had a small number of points subtracted for her use of the word “mankind” in her paper. So, why does it matter? It matters for the same reasons any issue matters relating to the control and manipulation of language and words in society.

Furthermore, I have little doubt the control over usage of language and words is part of a larger plan that involves the weaponization of sex and gender roles to meet the ends of a deeper racist, elitist, and eugenics-based agenda.

In fact, the American Psychological Association is an accredited NGO (Nongovernmental organization) within the United Nations. And the United Nations has a long history of advancing eugenics through its specialized agency, UNESCO, which Julian Huxley was the first director of.  Julian Huxley was also a prominent member and president of the British Eugenics Society.

Rockford University professor Stephen Hicks published an article on the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal’s website expressing his views on postmodernist indoctrination in the modern education system, and describes how indoctrinators think:

“There is the One Truth. I am in possession of it. So important is it that students must believe it. Alternative ideas are a waste of time—and a temptation to unformed minds—and should be shunned. So as a teacher I will use my authority and my power to instill only the correct ideas.”

And the implications surrounding Cailin Jeffers losing points on her English paper very much relate to this kind of indoctrination. It has also been taking many other shapes and forms around the country, in other public universities and keeping students under a kind of a postmodernist spell.

Modern academia in the United States has abandoned the classical education model. The difference between classical education and postmodernism is the difference between learning how to learn and being told what to think.

It would be an understatement in saying it is a massive disservice to both society and humanity when the schooling system is being used for postmodernist indoctrination and as a form of weaponization against natural law, traditional masculine roles, and effectively itself.

With that, here is a quote from the 1972 book, Deschooling Society, by Sephardic Jew and Roman Catholic convert, Ivan Illich:

“The school system today performs the threefold function common to powerful churches throughout history. It is simultaneously the repository of society’s myth, the institutionalization of that myth’s contradictions, and the locus of the ritual which reproduces and veils the disparities between myth and reality. Today the school system, and especially the university, provides ample opportunity for criticism of the myth and for rebellion against its institutional perversions. But the ritual which demands tolerance of the fundamental contradictions between myth and institution still goes largely unchallenged, for neither ideological criticism nor social action can bring about a new society. Only disenchantment with and detachment from the central social ritual and reform of that ritual can bring about radical change.

The American university has become the final stage of the most all encompassing initiation rite the world has ever known. No society in history has been able to survive without ritual or myth, but ours is the first which has needed such a dull, protracted, destructive, and expensive initiation into its myth. The contemporary world civilization is also the first one which has found it necessary to rationalize its fundamental initiation ritual in the name of education. We cannot begin a reform of education unless we first understand that neither individual learning nor social equality can be enhanced by the ritual of schooling. We cannot go beyond the consumer society unless we first understand that obligatory public schools inevitably reproduce such a society, no matter what is taught in them.”
