    • Those who serve (Last post by Karn)
    • I just wanted to thank the many veterans and service members out there. I have been away for a few days. Had to escort a fallen service member and be the Casualty Assistance Officer for the family until he was laid to rest. A good reminder of the silent heroes who stand the watch for so many. Our military, fire fighters, police, doctors, nurses and caregivers. Again, thank you all for what you do!

    • Choosing to go extinct.... (Last post by Wescli Wardest)
    • I’m not entirely sure what bastard children and women being portrayed as whores has to do with a race choosing to die out? I also don’t understand why women seem to carry the burden of the title whore when it takes two to tango. I’m sure that in most cases the guy knows what he’s getting in to. But I guess that is beside the point I got from the original post. I feel it has to do a lot with how you view your lineage. If you trace it from the father’s side then males can only spread their seed by mating with someone of another surname. But if you track it through the mother’s side then you have more leeway. As couples marry, the name passes on to the new lineage and the sheer number of available partners reduces. If you trace it through the woman then one clan may have many names but only a few direct descendants. It also helps to eliminate the slander of women for continuing the lineage. Which when a man does it he is called a stud for siring so many children. Celtic society "there is plenty of evidence of ancient societies where women held greater power than in many societies today. For example, Jean Markale's studies of Celtic societies show that the power of women was reflected not only in myth and legend but in legal codes pertaining to marriage, divorce, property ownership, and the right to rule.” - Margot Adler Quote: Matrilineality is a system in which descent is traced through the mother and maternal ancestors. Matrilineality is also a societal system in which one belongs to one's matriline or mother's lineage, which can involve the inheritance of property and/or titles. A matriline is a line of descent from a female ancestor to a descendant (of either sex) in which the individuals in all intervening generations are mothers – a mother line. In a matrilineal descent system an individual is considered to belong to the same descent group as her or his mother. This matrilineal descent pattern is in contrast to the more common pattern of patrilineal descent from which a family name is usually derived. The matriline of historical nobility was also called her or his enatic or uterine ancestry, corresponding to the patrilineal agnatic ancestry. Example cultures or societies include the Cherokee, Choctaw, Gitksan, Haida, Hopi, Iroquois, Lenape, Navajo, and Tlingit of North America; the Minangkabau people of West Sumatra, Indonesia and Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia; the Nairs of Kerala and the Bunts of Karnataka in south India; the Khasi, Jaintia and Garo of Meghalaya in northeast India; eastern Sri Lanka; the Mosuo of China; the Basques of Spain and France; the Akan including the Ashanti of west Africa; the Tuaregs of west and north Africa; most Jewish communities; and the Serer of Senegal, the Gambia and Mauritania. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matrilineality In these societies it is possible for men to sire many offspring and women to maintain long standing and strong lineages.
    • From time to time a poem (Last post by Kohadra)
    • This is a song I wrote for my new music project - Every Day's A Battle (EDAB). I thought this was the most appropriate place to post it. My Dear Tormentor This shit is over You can’t contain us We’re going to destroy This world that hates us You’re Day of Judgment So goddamn delicious My wrath is coming It will be vicious (Chorus) Oh do you see, These things you do to me Aren’t out of compulsitivity One more time and we’ll break you down One more time and we’ll beat you around You beat me up, and I’ll beat you down Fuck this shit I ain’t kidding around (End Chorus) Bloodied and broken upon the ground you lay I must ask, are you proud? The beast you created has awoken! So now I’ve killed you My dear tormentor The world won’t miss you Now walk through hells door! (Chorus x2) Oh do you see, These things you do to me Aren’t out of compulsitivity One more time and we’ll break you down One more time and we’ll beat you around You beat me up, and I’ll beat you down Fuck this shit I ain’t kidding around (End Chorus)

    • Inherently Violent? (Last post by Luthien)
    • This reminds me of when I was reading and listening to some material by Krishnamurti: Quote: "Violence is not merely killing another. It is violence when we use a sharp word, when we make a gesture to brush away a person, when we obey because there is fear. So violence isn't merely organized butchery in the name of God, in the name of society or country. Violence is much more subtle, much deeper, and we are inquiring into the very depths of violence." -and- “When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.” So, when we aim to separate ourselves from the whole, to gain by forcing difference apart from others, we are being violent. It doesn't necessarily imply physical harm, but is deeper than that.
