Civilization requires patriarchy

This comment on an old post by Laurence Auster is too succinct to miss as it addresses the natural state of Man.

I would also disagree with the idea that somehow family is the natural state of mankind. In reality, the natural state of mankind is a mother and her children (as the feminists claim). The family, instead, is the natural state of civilization. The monogamous marriage of patriarchal control and exclusive sexual access guarantees each man a woman and thus gives him a stake in the civilization around him. This reduces one major source of conflict and allows men to cooperate more easily. In fact, this exclusive sexual access is a hallmark feature of Western Civilization and a major reason why it surged ahead against the various polygamous societies of Africa and the Middle East.

What women want today is a polyandryous society that still maintains a “Sex and the City” civilization. They somehow expect to limit sexual access to the five percent of men they find attractive while the rest toil away to make life easier and more comfortable for them. It ain’t gonna happen.

This summarizes the decline of the West in a nutshell. Every great civilization has not only been patriarchal, but has been necessarily patriarchal as an intrinsic aspect of its foundation. This is logical, because if you think about it, in order to exist, a great civilization must somehow arise from the morass of tribal barbarism that is the human norm. This can only be accomplished if the aggressive drive of the male portion of the population can somehow be successfully harnessed in a manner that builds up a civilization.

Women have successfully attacked the concept of patriarchy under the guise of the equality myth. It has few defenders these days. But, as I have declared on numerous occasions, there is no such thing as equality in any legal, material or spiritual sense. It does not exist and one might as legitimately criticize patriarchy on the basis of rainbow unicorns or sparkly vampires. Unfortunately, what most of these equalitarian women do not realize is that they have been attacking the very core of civilization itself. The collapse is coming, most likely within decades, and the reality is not going to be much fun for anyone, but especially not for women.

It is understandable that the sheltered children of the West cannot fathom the brutality of barbarism and the pointlessness its mindless horrors. Even now, with the barbarians within the gates, they do not quite recognize it. But once the barbarians reach a critical mass, there will be no mistaking that the end of yet another great civilization has arrived. And they will. No civilization ever survives the attempt to replace its children with imported substitutes.

“According to Guttmacher, 35 percent of all U.S. women will have had an abortion by age 45. Guttmacher also reports that 93 percent of all abortions occur for “social reasons” such as a mother’s decision that the child is unwanted or “inconvenient.””

I tend to doubt the historians of the future will find it terribly difficult to determine the cause of the decline and fall of America. Some Christians still like to think that America is a nation for which God has a close regard. I tend to imagine that Americans would do well to hope that the God who has such harsh promises for those who corrupt the young hasn’t been paying close attention lately.

Predictable consequences

In which the police are astonished to learn that the criminal population isn’t content to sit around waiting for the police to shoot them first:

Authorities are worried a recent wave of police officer shootings may not be a coincidence. In just 24 hours, at least 11 cops were shot around the country.

The most recent incident at a fugitive’s house in St. Petersburg, Fla., left two officers dead and a U.S. marshal wounded Monday. Hours earlier, an Oregon officer was critically wounded after being shot multiple times during a traffic stop.

Monday’s violence followed a bloody Sunday that left an officer in Indianapolis critically wounded during a traffic stop shooting, four officers in Indianapolis wounded after a gunman opened fire in a precinct and two more officers in Washington wounded in a shootout in a Walmart parking lot.

“It’s not a fluke,” Richard Roberts, a spokesman for the International Union of Police Associations, told “There’s a perception among officers in the field that there’s a war on cops going on.”

There isn’t an organized “war on cops” anymore than there is an actual “war on criminals” being waged by the police. This is simply the natural reaction to the police unilaterally deciding to militarize their police operations and allow their officers to preemptively shoot people who aren’t shooting at them. It doesn’t take a whole lot of well-covered incidents where police shoot unarmed and even handcuffed men for criminals to realize that they are in a no quarter situation whenever they find themselves facing arrest.

The American police would be wise to ratchet down their violence and abandon the militarized posing or before too long they’re going to find themselves being hunted down in the same way that the police are hunted in Mexico and South America.

There is no birth certificate

Not in Hawaii, anyway:

“Senior officers in the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division told me on multiple occasions that no Hawaii long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate existed for Senator Obama in the Hawaii Department of Health,” Adams’ affidavit reads, “and there was no record that any such document had ever been on file in the Hawaii Department of Health or any other branch or department of the Hawaii government.”

In a recorded telephone interview, Adams told WND that it was common knowledge among election officials where he worked that no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate could be found at the Hawaii Department of Health. “My supervisor came and told me, ‘Of course, there’s no birth certificate. What? You stupid,'” Adams said…..

Moreover, Adams was told that neither Queens Memorial Hospital nor Kapi’olani Medical Center had any records of Obama’s birth at their medical facilities: “Senior officers in the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division further told me on multiple occasions that Hawaii State government officials had made inquires about Sen. Obama’s birth records to officials at Queens Medical Center and Kapi’olani Medical Center in Honolulu and that neither hospital had any record of Senator Obama having been born there, even though Governor Abercrombie is now asserting and various Hawaii government officials continue to assert Barack Obama Jr. was born at Kapi’olani Medical Center on Aug. 4, 1961.”

You may recall that I not only insisted that Obama would be a one-term “president”, but I didn’t even think he would be the Democratic nominee. I am even more confident that he won’t be now, since his birth mythology appears to be rapidly collapsing and this time I doubt he’s going to be able to get away without having to produce some documentation to remain eligible in at least one state around the country. Too many people in power have become too suspicious of his credentials, or rather, lack of them. I don’t pretend to know where he was born, although Connecticut would be one obvious place to start looking. But wherever it was, it does not appear to have been Hawaii.
