In times of universal deceit, telling
the truth is a revolutionary act.
         - George Orwell

Napoleon once observed that "history" is a set of lies agreed upon. In an era of ubiquitous fake news and information warfare, this has never been more true. The very concept of objective truth in history is fading out of our world. Pure propaganda and outright lies are passing into our history textbooks as unquestioned truth, condemning future generations to false views about historical reality. But the task of sifting through the lies and propaganda is overwhelming, limited by the ambition and time constraints of most observors. Only those who have dedicated their lives to sorting reality from falsehood are qualified to rewrite "consensus" history as a duty to humanity. The contributors to this site endeavor to do just that.

Beauty and the Beast

       There is a war going on for the soul of Western society.  It is a war between Freedom and Control, between Truth and Lies, between Love and Hate.
       Like any war, it is complicated. Defenders of each side have their arguments for why their side is right and just.  Each side thinks they are doing society a favour, and performing God's Will for humanity.  But each side is lost in self-righteousness, and society is ripping itself apart in a cannibalistic orgy of self-destruction.
       The recent spotlight on sexual assault by men against women is a case in point.  For months now, on a daily basis, the media has been inundating us with an endless stream of new allegations by women claiming sexual assault and harassment by men.  No doubt, the majority of these allegations are true.  But we have to ask ourselves:  Why now?  Why the sudden spotlight on behaviours which have been going on not just for decades, but for millennia?  Is it truly the emboldened voices of genuine victims we are hearing, or is there something deeper at play here?

Let us be clear:  groping and physical assault are wrong and must be condemned.  Rape and pedophilia are major crimes that deserve strict punishment.  But what shall we say about unwanted sexual advances made by men who kept it verbal?  Is the mere expression of a desire to engage in sex a crime?  Do women have the right to complain?  Is it right for men to be publicly shamed for their attempts to seduce women, having their reputations and careers destroyed in the process?

These are delicate issues.  To be sure, western society embraces equal rights for all people, regardless of sex, race, or creed.  Women have struggled for centuries to attain equality with men in the workplace, in politics, and in society.  Male domination of the sexes has been an ongoing problem for millennia, and it is right and good that women are finally finding their voice and are able to speak up about injustices without fear of repercussions.  Few will challenge or deny the justice of this trend.

The problem is the blurring of lines.  Is the man who grabs the bum of a woman he finds attractive worse than the man who restrains himself and merely solicits sex verbally?  Is the man who rapes a 6-year old child worse than the man who mistakes a 15-year old for a 17-year old and mistakenly proceeds to have consensual sex with her?  Is the man who threatens to hurt a woman for going public with claims of his exposing himself worse than the man who merely misinterprets friendliness for sexual consent and got undressed prematurely?

The answer to all these questions should be 'yes'.  Yet, in today's media environment, the lines are being blurred.  Men everywhere are being put on the defensive, wondering if they are going to be next on the list of 'sexual predators' paraded on the nightly news, only to have their lives and careers destroyed.

Women are beautiful.  Just take LeeAnna, pictured above.  A beauty. A princess. A goddess.  She was a rape victim at the tender young age of 17, with the rapist, twenty years her senior, threatening to rape her dead body.  She has pursued charges against this man in court, only to have the charges reduced to a single charge of physical (not sexual) assault due to the clever arguments of the accused's lawyer and the unprovability of the claims.  Her new man-of-interest, also twenty years older than her, who would never hurt a fly, is now facing months in jail for having walked down the street - literally.  A judge recently determined that the street he was walking on was "too close to children", with a playground invisibly lurking 125 metres away behind a building.  This man is treated as a predator because seven years earlier, he consensually kissed a 15-year old girl who told him she was 17.  No one was hurt, and no one complained about the kiss, yet now, he has had three front-page newpaper articles castigating him as a predator and weirdo.  Beginning today, he must rot in jail as a scapegoat for society as a whole.  Where is the justice here?

As a society, we have no idea who the real predators are.  The clean-cut suit-wearing prep-school types who go into politics and banking, who rape the public purse for billions of dollars, are considered 'elite' role-models.  The highschool-bullies-turned-police-officers among us enjoy the immunity of the law as they beat and pummel people they don't like to earn their six-figure paycheque.  The military-garbed soldiers who volunteer to go overseas and shoot up innocent civilians by the dozen while protecting the expansive opium crops and heroin trade in Afghanistan are considered 'heroes' and have highways named after them.

Our female predator counterparts are hardly any better.  The scantilly-clad women who parade their body parts in every conceivable workplace and adorn every TV show and magazine cover, hinting at sexual availability through suggestive language and innuendo, are heralded as Hollywood superstars who our children should look up to and emulate.  Heaven forbid a man who catches sight of such teases gets a naughty idea in his mind about seeing what little clothing she has left on come off so he can experience some private thrills.  Gold-diggers and meth-whores leave a trail of destruction on their own predatory path using sex as a weapon of control and manipulation.

These examples are enough to illustrate that our society is all mixed up.  Through media scapegoating, sex has become a tool of personal destruction.  We are dredging up the Beasts of our subconscious imaginations and projecting them onto unwilling subjects to fulfill a sick social agenda.  We've had Oprah Winfrey shows and Dr. Phil shows on for decades, trying to expose the true workings of the human mind when it comes to sexuality, but we don't seem to have made any progress.  We still project our secret desires onto others who are made to fit the role of scapegoat, chased out of the public arena so we can feel better about ourselves.  Better that 'they' get chased out than 'I'.

But what happens when they come after YOU?  What are YOU going to do when it's your turn to be society's scapegoat?  Who is going to listen to your voice when the Facebook Gestapo come knocking on your Internet door?  What are YOU going to do when you have your life ruined by groundless accusations and witch-hunts that result in your being sentenced to the status of an animal and placed in a cage for months, if not years, on end?  Who will listen to YOUR cries?

If the trend continues, Western society will implode.  No one will be safe.  The witch-hunt will come to your door, and no one will be able to hide.  The only people left alone and allowed to prosper will be the gender-less, the asexual, the most clever mask-wearer.  The truth about our sexual nature, inherited from a billion years of evolution, will be lost in a flurry of public lynchings designed to direct our growing angst at a world gone mad towards seemingly 'worthy' targets of hate.  The Hate-Screens of George Orwell's nightmare will come to pass, and instead of political revolutionaries paraded before us as the rightful objects of our Hate, it will will be those who simply asked for a kiss.  Then we will know that Love has died, and with it, the Saviour of the World.
