Video: James Fallon, psychopathy and the dead amygdala

Epigenetics is still genetic.

Philosophies of a Disenchanted Scholar

Is this an old drum? Yes, it’s made of human skin. Deal with it.

We’re going into virgin ground, it’s going to be creepy. You’re used to it with me, with me, the questions get asked and nobody can say I’m braindead, at least. We’re trying, here.

Cut to 14 minutes in if you already know who this is.
Limbic system generally, deep cortex, and the amygdala structure referenced first.

This is intentional. From a lecturer, order matters.

Reader, pretending to care:


“It’s not something you can get used to”
louder for the naive psychopath worshipers at the back.
You cannot train it, it’s dead.
“It’s, it’s – The first part that develops, the cortex, in an infant”
“Before puberty: They’re full of emotion, or full of- morality.”

You might note similarities in the way he expresses himself, and the way I express myself.
Academese, mon amis.

What if Charlottesville Was a Set Up?

surprise, surprise, surprise

The Foxhole

Since George Soros was behind it, it’s a distinct probability.

From The American Thinker

The ridiculous campaign by virtually every media outlet, every Democrat and far too many squishy Republicans to label Trump some kind of  racist and Nazi sympathizer is beginning to have the stink of an orchestrated smear.   The conflagration in Charlottesville is beginning to feel like a set-up, perhaps weeks or months in the planning.  Planned by whom?  Time may tell.  We know that Michael Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville, declared his city to be the “capital of the resistance” just after Trump’s inauguration.  We know that Gov. Terry McAuliffe is a corruptocrat, joined at the hip to the Clintons.  He pardoned sixty-thousand felons in order to ensure he delivered his state to the presidential election of Hillary Clinton.  We know he would like to run for president himself.

We know that Obama…

Video: I’m not sorry

Philosophies of a Disenchanted Scholar

Sorry for what? It isn’t a crime to be white.

You can only be sorry for doing something wrong.
I’ve done nothing wrong, so …..no.
Being something wrong is dehumanization. Itself, a wrong.
No guilt from this one, thanks. The Original Sin isn’t whiteness.
Anything less than healthy self-possession is emotional blackmail. Gaslighting to instill self-loathing and reduce ingroup trust and prosocial behaviours.
Nobody should feel guilty for existing.

Especially when their culture and peoples have contributed so much to an ungrateful world.

I don’t go to any other country and tell them I know what’s best for them. Infantilisation, stonewalling, derailment, plenty of common abuse techniques are used on this topic.

Either we’re better – in which case, privilege, and you should avoid us.

Or we’re worse, in which case, you shouldn’t be spitting on us, pitying it, but again, avoid us and don’t invade our homelands.

Finally, history…

Is Trump Winning? by Robert Gore

What there is that can be won, anyway.

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

Mainstream analysis has been wrong for so long, why start believing it now?

SLL has run a series of articles (“Plot Holes,” “Trump and Vault 7,” “Calling a Bluff?” “Let’s Connect the Dots,” “Powerball, Part One,” “Powerball, Part Two”) advancing interrelated hypotheses. We’ve asserted that President Trump is far smarter and the powers that be far stupider and weaker than current consensus estimates. Trump’s primary motivation is power. The nonstop vilification campaign against him has little to do with policy differences and instead reflects establishment fears that Trump will investigate, expose, and punish its criminality. The upshot of these hypotheses: Trump is winning and has consolidated his power.

Reader reaction to this non-mainstream and admittedly speculative line of thinking has been mixed and often skeptical. However, we’ll press on, because our hypotheses have yielded testable predictions, most of…

High altitude common sense.

It’s not about whether people who consider themselves “transgender” have equal individual rights under the Constitution. It’s about the right and responsibility of the military to conduct itself, and the right of the Commander-in-Chief — the U.S. President — to make decisions he sees as most fitting and appropriate to the safety of the country.…

Porretto on cultural marxism

After undertaking a brief, informal survey, I concluded that (much to my surprise) Antonio Gramsci’s call for “cultural hegemony” – i.e., his exhortation to Marxists to undertake a campaign of conquest of the West’s systems of education, information, and culture – is not yet known to many American conservatives. (More recently, we have Rudi…
