The Politicization of Motherhood

Women produce more oxytocin than men do, which answers the obvious question of why fathers aren’t as well-suited as mothers for this sort of “sensitive, empathetic nurturing.” People “want to feel that men and women are fungible,” observes Ms. Komisar—but they aren’t, at least not when it comes to parental roles. Fathers produce a “different nurturing hormone” known as vasopressin, “what we call the protective, aggressive hormone.”

The true story of For Greater Glory Our hemisphere’s greatest martyrs remain virtually unknown to English-speaking Catholics.

The Reforma, which also confiscated the lands of Mexico’s indigenous peoples, would ultimately culminate in the concentration of 90 percent of the agricultural land of Mexico in the hands of one percent of the country’s families, resulting in abuses that would lead to the Mexican Revolution of 1910, and the rise of Francisco I.

Campus Conservatives Should Check Their Own Trolling

The Founding Fathers believed in “ordered liberty”—that freedom could not coexist without virtue. George Washington wrote that the “security of a free Constitution” depends on “teaching the people…to discriminate the spirit of liberty from that of licentiousness.” The Founders predicted that forgetting this lesson would lead to despotism, as men who could not rule themselves would come to be ruled by others.
The importance of self-restraint through virtue lies at the core of both America’s founding and conservative thought. Young conservatives should feel proud to own such a rich intellectual legacy—it was Edmund Burke who wrote that “the restraints on men, as well as their liberties, are to be reckoned among their rights.” In times such as ours, that idea is countercultural, and therefore powerful.

Myths about middle ages

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Droit_du_seigneur

http://www.history.com/news/a-brief-history-of-bloodletting

The practice of bloodletting began around 3000 years ago with the Egyptians, then continued with the Greeks and Romans, the Arabs and Asians, then spread through Europe during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It reached its peak in Europe in the 19th century but subsequently declined and today in Western medicine is used only for a few select conditions.

The Research Proves The No. 1 Social Justice Imperative Is Marriage

Child Sexual Abuse Facts

FACT: Family and acquaintance child sexual abuse perpetrators have reported that they look for specific characteristics in the children they choose to abuse.

  • Perpetrators report that they look for passive, quiet, troubled, lonely children from single parent or broken homes (Budin & Johnson 1989).
  • Perpetrators frequently seek out children who are particularly trusting (Conte et al., 1987) and work proactively to establish a trusting relationship before abusing them (Budin & Johnson, 1989; Conte, Wolfe, & Smith, 1989; Elliott et al., 1995; Warner-Kearney, 1987). Not infrequently, this extends to establishing a trusting relationship with the victim’s family as well (Elliott et al., 1995).

FACT: There are child and family characteristics that significantly heighten or lower risk of sexual abuse. The following risk factors are based on reported and identified cases of abuse.

  • Family structure is the most important risk factor in child sexual abuse. Children who live with two married biological parents are at low risk for abuse. The risk increases when children live with step-parents or a single parent. Children living without either parent (foster children) are 10 times more likely to be sexually abused than children that live with both biological parents. Children who live with a single parent that has a live-in partner are at the highest risk: they are 20 times more likely to be victims of child sexual abuse than children living with both biological parents (Sedlack, et. al., 2010).

Eastgate pub

C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and the Inklings

Lewis and Tolkien found that they greatly enjoyed one another’s company, and so they cultivated the habit of meeting on Monday mornings for beer and conversation. Lewis wrote about it in one of his letters: “It has also become the custom for Tolkien to drop in on me of a Monday morning for a glass. This is one of the pleasantest spots in the week. Sometimes we talk English school politics: sometimes we criticise one another’s poems: other days we drift into theology or the state of the nation; rarely we fly no higher than bawdy and puns.”

Two minds The cognitive differences between men and women

In her preface to the first edition, Halpern wrote: “At the time, it seemed clear to me that any between-sex differences in thinking abilities were due to socialization practices, artifacts and mistakes in the research, and bias and prejudice. ... After reviewing a pile of journal articles that stood several feet high and numerous books and book chapters that dwarfed the stack of journal articles … I changed my mind.” Why? There was too much data pointing to the biological basis of sex-based cognitive differences to ignore, Halpern says.

A new international currency?

The wealth transfer to the banking system since President Nixon abrogated the Bretton Woods Treaty – without any vote or debate – has been astonishing.  For the period 2006 through 2016, according to the FDIC, they include distributing $818 billion in dividends to bank shareholders, $1.8 trillion in employee compensation, $4 trillion net interest income on money that banks created out of nothing, and $6.5 trillion in revenues net of interest expense.

An excerpt from ‘Make Your Own Bed’

http://www.msnbc.com/morning-joe/excerpt-make-your-own-bed

What Do We Say About Decent Men Who Died for a Wicked Cause?

Black America is in jeopardy. For every 100 black women of marrying age there are only 81 men: the rest are dead or in jail. Seventy-three percent  of African-American children are born out of marriage. Although universities admit blacks and whites in roughly equal proportions, only 40% of black men graduate within six years of matriculation. Agony over these circumstances motivates the witch-hunt against imagined "micro-aggression," as I wrote two years ago. The "micro-aggression" theory does not explain why African-American women (who presumably are doubly oppressed for being both black and female) have a much higher college graduation rate (50% as opposed to 40%) than black men.

The New Empire by Brooks Adams

https://archive.org/details/newempire01adamgoog

The law of civilization and decay; an essay on history by Adams, Brooks, 1848-1927

https://archive.org/details/lawofcivilizatio00adam

WHAT I DIDN’T LEARN AT COLLEGE

There are several fact-packed books which tell a great deal about the relations of government and economic ruling c1asses down through history. Two especially good ones are Brooks Adams’ The Law of Civilization and Decay and Alexander Del Mar’s His­tory of Monetary Systems. Almost any professor wi1l agree that Brooks Adams was one ofAmerica’s greatest thinkers and historians; Del Mar was called the great­est historian of the 19th Century, and was frequently consulted as an expert by governments (who often refused to take his advice).
Both books have been out of print for years, and neither is used in a college or university today, as far as I know. Arthur Kitson’s testimony before the Mac­millan Commission has never been refuted, yet his book (The Banker’s Conspiracy! which unleashed the World War) is as little-known, in academic circ1es, as Adams or Del Mar. Read all three of them, and see what you think of the history and economics taught in your school.
