How Culpable Are You?

2 Nov

Jennifer Van Laar from Redstate has a terrific thread responding to Emily Oster’s piece at the Atlantic:

Atlantic Article Archived:

Dogs don’t have thumbs @MorlockP has another take:

Very Sun Tzu. OK. Challenge accepted!

I believe there are 4 levels of culpability and the level you fall under determines my willingness to forgive you and the punishment I believe you deserve (my opinion being the only thing about which I can definitively speak.

Level 4:

Level 4 is where the regular people who were convinced that all the COVID measures were necessary or not even enough reside. If you called authorities because your neighbor had too many visitors or because local kids were gathering at the park to play basketball on a warm sunny day, you’re in level 4. You are level 4 if you didn’t let your kids out to play because someone might walk by without a mask, or if you confronted unmasked people in a store even if you were working there, if you refused to let your sister visit your children until everyone was vaccinated, if you volunteered the words “I’m fully vaccinated” when meeting someone before you interacted with them.

Level 4 are where victims of psychological manipulation from government and media reside. You chastised and ostracized your loved ones who dared to challenge the authorities that you so eagerly obeyed. I understand, you were lied to. If you admit that you went too far, I will forgive you. We need to repair these bridges and move on together because that is what will get us through the next difficult stage of our existence, come what may.


Level 3 has a much higher level of culpability in all of these. People in Level 3 actively participated in the administration of COVID measures or spreading of propaganda. The cheerleaders and enforcers.

You are in Culpability Level 3 if you hired the security guards to guard the doors of a building to check for vaccination status or re-arranged entrances and exits and purchased fancy signs to post your COVID policies with budgets that were funded by government grants or loans. If you hired and managed the inspectors to harass the local businesses about their seating capacities, plexiglass and the arrows that still lie, peeling on the floors of public places to remind us of the time we were all breaking the rules a little. If you inserted the words “baseless claims”, “inaccurately describes” or other derogatory descriptors in the copy of your articles when you quoted the daring resisters who spoke out against the mandates to carefully strip away any shred of credibility while you attempted to maintain the illusion of objectivity.

Level 3 is full of low-level administrators, managers, journalists who carried out orders from their superiors. Individually, their contributions seemed minor, but collectively, they contributed to a system of demoralization, dehumanization and oppression. Through these people, the elites exerted their power over an entire population. You will be required to make amends and it won’t be as simple as you explain in your article, Ms. Oster, for this is the level your culpability.


Level 2 is another step up in the culpability scale. Here reside the people who exerted local and regional power. You wrote or approved policy given to Level 3 people. You consulted with “experts” and took their recommendations without questioning the obvious flaws in logical reasoning. You, dare I say, seemed to relish in the increased level of power afforded by the COVID emergency. You determined who must get vaccinated to keep their jobs or be allowed to participate in society.

You could have balked at the idea that you should overstep the boundaries of your authority, take away bodily autonomy, destroy businesses. You could have stood up for those for whose safety you were responsible. You could have applied a true risk-reward analysis and eased up on the measures.

Instead, you looked at the risk of imposing the measures on your own job. You asked, if it can be done. Your lawyers said yes. You asked yourself what would happen if you didn’t do it and the answer was that you’d probably lose your job. Instead of speaking out and taking that risk you pushed forward for your own benefit.

Local mayors, leaders of regulatory bodies, heads of sports associations, mid-level politicians, you belong to Level 2.


Here we are. Numero Uno. You need to be held fully accountable for your actions that messed up so many lives, ruined the economy and the distribution system. Level 1 is where the top brass sit: heads of state, heads of health authorities and global organizations such as WHO and WEF, CEOs and top executives . You sat back and wondered how much power you could grab. Your wealth multiplied; your power solidified. You flew to meetings around the world while the regular citizens couldn’t travel to another state or province. You got special appointments at the hairdresser while everyone else tried to cut their own hair in the sink. You consulted with PR firms to craft the best narratives to spread, twisting and pivoting as required to keep it going, to keep people believing in you. You are the chief editors, owners lead writers and faces of media outlets.

Fauci, Tam, Trudeau, Witmer, Pelosi, Gates, Bezos, Zucker, Tedros Adhanom, Rob Ford, and many more.

The elite, running the show talked about the “opportunity offered by the pandemic for a great reset”. They want to control our lives, and this was an opening to increase that control.

I won’t say I could never forgive you. I just doubt any of you could ever demonstrate the sincerity necessary after the damage you have done. If there is any redemption, it lies in the fact that you have no awareness of the reality here on the ground. You were born in a separate world. Your father never showed you how to bump-start a car to get you school on a cold morning when the old battery died. You never looked at a credit card bill and wondered how it seems to sneak up higher each month and worried. You see yourselves as the parents and caregivers to the children who are so helpless but you don’t understand how the world works at our level. The tragedy is that you think you are above the human failings but your pride is putting us all in danger.


I know I said there were 4 levels, but there is another. Any person who knowingly altered, hid or twisted facts that could have changed the course of the pandemic response holds an even bigger culpability than can be expressed. I have no evidence to show but I know these people are out there. Only they know who they are.

Tips for Being a Father in 2022

16 Apr
  1. Teach discipline at a young age. Don’t just “discipline” them; teach them discipline. They need to learn self-discipline. Good results come from patience and perseverance. If they give in to every urge at a young age – candy, treats, toys, games – without learning the responsibility that comes first what will happen when more adult-like urges develop? It takes self-control to concentrate their attention on what needs to get done, then time for video games. Every behaviour corrected at a young is a major problem avoided when they’re older.
  2. Put the phone down and talk to your kids. I know it’s hard to put down the podcast or let that email go unanswered for a few minutes while you’re in the house with your family. I know the kids are nose down into TikTok videos, but they need to communicate with real people too. Find out what they’re watching and what language they’re speaking – because the slang changes weekly and it doesn’t sound like English. You need to meet them where they are. You can’t stop them from picking it up, but you can make sure they can communicate properly when needed. Every moment together is an opportunity to gauge where they’re at – even the 2 minutes when they’re getting their shoes on to go out. Don’t miss it because you’re reading some stranger’s blog post.
  3. Schedule dinnertime and eat together with no phones or TV. Some old traditions make sense. Start this as soon as they’re sitting up. Pull the highchair up to the table and eat together. Even when they’re eating the baby food, show them what you’re eating. They will get curious and soon, they’ll be pointing at your plate and asking to try it. When they’re older, they’ll be used to the idea of eating together, when you can share discussion about everything and enjoy each other.
  4. Prepare meals in the home. As they’re growing, they need to see how a household runs. If all their food is delivered pre-made or comes pre-cooked from the freezer, they won’t develop a true understanding of the nature of food, how to pick and prepare it. It’s healthier too.
  5. Involve them in the running of the household. Don’t worry so much about delineating mom’s jobs from dad’s jobs; most of us don’t live on homesteads anymore where that was essential. Involve them in everything – groceries, cooking, cleaning, gardening, organizing, laundry, etc. To be independent people, they need to learn how to manage a home and all of the basic skills that come with it.
  6. Play with your family. Everything from basic sports to wrestling to hide and seek to board games and video games. Playing is how kids learn to socialize and interact with rules. It’s also fun and builds fond memories together. Whether they will move on to organized sports or not, it starts with Dad rolling and tossing them a ball and letting them roll or toss it back. You might feel it’s boring and repetitive when they want to play the same game over and over again, but believe me, their attention span will wane before yours and they’ll move on. You’ll miss each stage of play when it’s gone. Entertain them while you can.
  7. Challenge their teachers. Find out what they’re learning in school and mock it relentlessly if/when mockery is deserved. Bertrand Russel once said to “respect public opinion in so far as is necessary to avoid starvation and to keep out of prison.” The same is true of the school curriculum. Your children need good grades to succeed, but an actual education is even more important. They need to pay attention to the teacher to get a good mark but they need to learn to formulate their own opinions based on wisdom passed down from you.
  8. Challenge culture. Don’t let them watch every movie that’s out there just because kids at school do. If they’re watching TV and another goofy, inept father character makes a father look like a fool, you can speak up and remind them these messages are wrong. When the statues of historical figures are pulled down, explain what they really represented. School doesn’t teach them the great stories anymore. You need to step in and read them the classic tales, including the biblical tales with the moral lessons. Show your culture for what it really is – all it’s good and bad.
  9. Exercise and eat right. The most important lesson in life is how to make the most with what you’re given. Your body and their bodies are probably very similar. No one is in a better position to teach them how their bodies work than you but you need to find the best way to look after your own body first. The best way for a parent to motivate is with demonstration and gentle encouragement. When they’re young, they will want to be like you. If you’re stuffing your face with cheezies and beer while watching other men play sports, you’re modeling behaviour
  10. Never Surrender. Divorce is surrender. They’re better off with 2 parents living together. If you’re living elsewhere, you will miss those brief moments when you have an opportunity to have a positive influence like the peaceful moments at bedtime. To stay together you need respect from your wife and the only way you can earn that respect is to be respectable and to show respect to her. Challenge yourself to be better so you can be the man worthy of her loyalty and affection. The world is trying to knock down your door and get inside but you have to defend and maintain the tranquility of your peaceful home where your kids will grow strong.

The best way to motivate your children with by demonstration, involvement and gentle encouragement. Be the best person you can be at work and at home. Be playful and have fun with them and they will want to follow you. Then a few gentle words of encouragement when needed is all that is required to keep them on the right path.

System Power

14 Jan

Everybody is discussing the video of a Ronald MacDonald House resident asking about his family’s eviction notice with the administrator of the residence. In the Tweet above I remark how she gives the man such a blatantly illogical response with a completely straight face.

I’ve seen this many times in real life, even experienced it from myself. People respond to facts with completely non-sensical rationalizations of actions that don’t make sense.

In this case, the man, Austin Furgason, explains that the policy of evicting unvaccinated residents makes no sense because the vaccinated can, just as easily, catch the virus and transmit it to others. She responds “That’s right, so what we’re trying to do is reduce the risk to our residence.”

No amount of pleading or protest will get her to acknowledge that her response is illogical. Some may call it cognitive dissonance. Thane Eichenhauer (@ilovegrover) suggests it could be a rationalization. Neither of these explanations are complete, however.

It occurred to me that she was not considering her opinion at all. She just deferred to the system.

She gave a response from wrote that people all over have been reading and hearing from media, work, schools and other organizations and institutions. She likely read that very statement dozens of times as the policy was floated and rolled out to staff. She outsourced her cognition to her chain of command.

Someone wrote the carefully worded policy and an executive likely signed off on it. Committees, likely reviewed it to ensure all legal liabilities and public relations risks were covered. The administrator in the video was confident in her assertion because it simply wasn’t her decision. She was a small piece in this system. A low position on the totem pole, just a face of THE SYSTEM that already decided beforehand that vaccines make us safer.

But how does The System determine the answer and from where does its authority originate?

Ronald MacDonald House has a policy-making apparatus, like all large organizations. They have consultants who help comply with health authorities and other regulators. The authorities have structures with leaders who eventually report up to the elected politicians.

But where to the politicians get their information? From their bureaucratic authorities, of course. And, this whole system is supported by public opinion which, of course, gets its information from the same system.

Committees can really make a mess. Democracy is a giant system of committees all feeding information to and from each other in an endless series of connected loops.

The individual who is aware of this and cognizant of the human condition might suffer tremendous anxiety, but not the average person. The average person, like the administrator in the video simply re-affirms her opinion calling upon the authority of The System Power.

Like a giant leviathan, THE SYSTEM determines what can be done and whatever can be done will be done, with little consideration to whether it’s the right thing to do.

Can THE SYSTEM make a vaccine in record time? Yes.

Can THE SYSTEM bypass legal challenges and force people to take the vaccine? Yes – there many ways it can coerce people.

And people in THE SYSTEM don’t need to consider their actions. SYSTEM POWER will take all responsibility away from the individual as long as they play their part well.

Shout Your Abortion: I’m a Murderer!!!

5 Dec

I did the deed. I had accomplices; but, I am certainly a guilty party, 100% culpable.

A Young Human

I faced no prison for the act. It wasn’t a crime, according to the laws of the land; however, I live with the guilt every waking breath. I hear the evidence read out regularly, unannounced with the slightest provocation. Any triggered memory from my subconscious reminds me that I stand convicted without sentence. I walk a free man but pursued by a past that won’t be hidden.

Tragedy affects us many ways. Tragedy of our own creation is especially troublesome to the human spirit. A blight on the soul so ugly that most seek to avoid all conscious acknowledgement. Acknowledgement seems easier to avoid when one never meets his victim’s eyes. No screams were ever heard from my victim’s lips.

Cowards recoil and hide from their own guilt. I face them head on. I am no longer a coward, but it’s too late. My cowardly deed is done.

I am a murderer!

Shouting My Crime

I am also a victim of a mentality that was learned from a young age. I take full ownership of my state of mind which led to my actions, as everyone should. I was seduced by a moral sleight-of-hand trick before I understood the world or had a firm grasp of morality.

My moral code with regards to sex at the time was juvenile. I had absorbed the idea from feminism that women were just like men and the only reason the were less sexually aggressive was social shaming. Early and frequent exposure to porn, gave me the idea that sex was just another activity people did for pleasure. The more sex you could have, the happier you would be.

Combining these two ideas, left me with an ethos that basically stated, sexuality was repressed by society, women needed to be liberated in order to fully enjoy sex like men did. I was here to liberate women and convince them that they were just like men by having sex with them.

Naturally, treating women like men didn’t work so well in actually getting women to like me. But, I persevered and found myself in a life-changing situation with one, seemingly easy, escape. The life was taken before it was aware of itself (at least as far as we could tell), a crime in the moral sense but not legally.

Abortion is justified in the minds of pro-choice supporters because a woman should not be forced to carry a baby to term inside her own body. Like an observer on the shore is under no obligation to put herself at risk to save the boater heading for a waterfall, a mother can’t be forced to carry her child to term. But what if the observer puts an unconscious person into a boat unbeknownst? Can the “observer” just watch as the boat flows down the river towards certain doom? Moreover, can the “observer” push the boat out into the water where the passenger will die before ever gaining consciousness?

Two people caused this life to be conceived. Two people wrestle with the moral responsibility for the life they created. Two people committed this crime. No moral sleight-of-hand can allow you to pretend the actions leading to the situation never occurred.

For years, I lived with the crime, not understanding or feeling any sense of remorse, other than the hurt feelings and physical pain I caused to my partner in crime. My guilt did not truly occur to me until I sat in my living room looking at a newborn baby boy sleeping on the floor. It really hit me that I had done something wonderful and at the same time, I realized that I had done something horrible when I was much younger.

That was the just first event that began my journey from 100% pro-choice to 100% pro-life. It wasn’t enough, however. 3 other moments helped. A religious friend mentioned the phrase “Abortion should not be birth-control.” It struck me that this is what I had done. Later, as I was learning to be libertarian, I heard someone give a libertarian position for pro-life. The fetus was a person and deserved protection from harm – even from the mother while in utero.

I mulled this over for a long time until someone named Greg Swann solidified my position by pointing out that abortion is harmful to the mother and the father – self-harm. I suddenly saw the line of causation from my early education and mindset to my careless attitude to the event I now recognized as a tragedy. All of that was harmful. All of it was degrading to myself and my sexual partners. I had recognized it as wrong the whole time but I did not want to acknowledge it.

My sexual ethos that led up to my crime was informed by feminist educators starting in grade 5, movies such as Fast Times at Ridgemont High, television and politics, especially feminist politics, and porn. The earliest change actually occurred prior to meeting my living children’s mother. I reflected on my actions and realized that sex was more than the simple pleasurable pursuit I had considered it. I decided that my sex shouldn’t be shared with anyone with whom I wouldn’t raise a child. It was a change in course toward moral accountability for my actions. This was shortly before I met my future wife.

I think the change in attitude made an improvement within myself that the woman I was to marry noticed. It wasn’t that simple, however. I was was still sick from the years of porn, promiscuity and debasement but, so were most men my age.

So here I am. Married, father of two boys to whom I preach a philosophy of responsibility for one’s actions, especially actions that could result in creation of new life.

It’s hard to stand against the headwind of a culture still obsessed with radical sexual permissiveness and sinking lower into the moral morass from which I had clawed myself out. Conversations with co-workers sometimes veer into subjects I find disheartening such as stories about their teenagers’ sexual activities and how to deal with the consequences. I politely excuse myself from such conversations.

My children are asked to declare their pronouns at school and forced to comply with classmates’ demands to be called different genders while I try to teach my sons what manhood means and how to treat women with respect of the most incredible power inherent in their bodies. Sex-ed teachers talk about their personal favorite types of sex.

Culture on movies, TV, internet and music tells them that the only risks from sex is pregnancy and disease.

I have instilled an understanding in my children that emotional risk is just as important and people shouldn’t take sex lightly to remain mentally and emotionally healthy.

My parents tried to instill their values into me but the school and the culture had managed to instill the post-modern anti-human values of feminism first. Once a set of values become part of your identity, words alone will not convince you to change. It took many, many years and reckoning with my emotions as my experience widened along with hearing different opinions to come around to my position.

I feel the weight of the tragedy I caused every day. I am a better person now but I can never be the person who did not commit this crime.

Experts Are Not “Science”

26 Mar

I cannot vouch for legitimacy of this video. I do not know who Kary Mullis, the purported inventor of PCR test is. I will say that he is 100% correct when he calls Anthony Fauci an administrator.

I’ve said this a thousand times and I’ll never stop saying it.

Science is a process to determine facts.
Politics is a process to determine power.
Experts are always chosen using the latter.
Therefore experts are better politicians than they are scientists

Science is trying to replace religion. The problem is that science has no central truth to check with. Watch around 6:20. Mullis says, “There isn’t an up there, there… The academy of science is a bunch of idiots like us… There are no wise men on top making sure we don’t do something dumb.”

I would love to point to a book or a G.O.D. as the one truth to check everything against but I don’t believe in the supernatural, omnipotent or omniscient entity who created us and Granted Our Dominion over earth. That doesn’t mean I don’t believe that religion is necessary. Truth is necessary – moral truth. The guiding star.

Religion has pointed us in the right direction. Religion is a process for finding truth. Science can’t speak to morality. It can help – nay, it is essential – in this day and age to use science to help us understand moral truth.

Religion points to the good and the true. Trying to walk it’s path, we have discovered much truth about our species and the world. Mistakes were made and continue to be made but process of elimination through competition, evolution, has chosen the best ways to live. But all instituted systems reach a point where they begin to stifle progress. See, the Ottoman Jannissary. Also investigate their Caligraphers‘ resistance to the printing press that sealed that empire’s fate.

Science grew out of religious yearnings for truth and understanding to stand apart from religion. When we use science to replace religion, we inevitably elevate our scientists to the level clergy or even sainthood.

But there is no singular truth from who’s authority they speak.

“Trust the science” is the mantra which means, “Don’t ask any questions”. But, we’ve forgotten that science is means always asking questions. “Experts” seek only power, not truth.
