Meet the Team
We are witnessing an organized pushback against the largest, most powerful insane asylum in history. The perfect storm of cultural, political and institutional adoption of these ideologies has turned reality upside down.
If we allow these maniacs to succeed and completely control our society, it will take decades to undo - and there's no guarantee we will succeed! The inmates are running the asylum, and they will not give up without a fight.
"Pathologically entitled children in adult bodies" will not listen to reason. Trying to debate them results in their tantrums, hateful attacks and knee-jerk labeling of their enemies as being "Nazi", "White Supremacist", etc. We are literally engaged in the fight of our lives.
Thanks to you brave warriors and others like Dr. Malone, Triggernometry Bigotinis and Mattias Desmet I feel some hope! Good luck and thank you all!
A great piece this.... but I fear that all attempts "to highlight the capture of the academic humanities by a defiantly irrational ideology" - however clever -face a big (perhaps insurmountable) problem - human nature. The capture of academia has long since also become the capture of every institution of civil society in the Western world (especially the English-speaking world) And all attempts at highlighting this hit a wall. A wall made of incuriosity...... "Thanks to the internet, there is now a wealth of journalism, of impeccable probity, investigating and interrogating the prevailing left-liberal narratives on race, gender and much else. Now, any open-minded person can - if the will is there - find persuasive, evidence-based refutations of those MSM narratives with their wilful seeking of ‘discrimination’, emotional ‘trauma’ and minority victimisation stories often diametrically opposed to evidence. If the will is there – therein lies the rub. As Saul Bellow put it “a great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep.”
I have seen a similar type of nonsense when it comes to gender-affirming care. Respected magazines and journals like the British Medical Journal or The Economist have written extensively about the abysmal quality of work that is giving intellectual cover for the US medical establishment to practice irreversible changes on young men and women with lifelong consequences. However, the critics always said, "We don't really know what might happen with these hormones." That is no longer true, at least for men on estrogen therapy. We now know that pharmacological doses of estrogen are lethal for men, kind of a slow-moving train wreck that occurs over decades. It has been documented quite comprehensively in this review: https://bit.ly/estro_on_men. Research in the last few years on the effects of estrogen on trans women has been coming in thick and fast, and it is all alarming. The most alarming of all is its effect on the brain. Through myriad mechanisms, estrogen changes the brain, from reducing the hippocampal volume to serum BDNF levels (which leads to depressive disorders), reducing gray matter, reducing cortical white matter integrity, and decreasing brain cortical volume, leading to neuropathologies from Alzheimer's to schizophrenia, mood disorders such as depression and anxiety, drug dependence, and mental retardation The deleterious effects of estrogen do not end there. They change the body's immune responses, leading to a host of autoimmune diseases. And then, there are the established effects on the cardiovascular system and different kinds of cancers. That conclusion does not mean that the young men aren't suffering, just that the therapy for them doesn't bring them any balm at all. Rather, it causes iatrogenic harm with not a single upside, psychological or physiological. The analogy that I can think of is this: it is as if the medical community is saying that since cancer patients are suffering, we should administer cyanide capsules because some “experts” within the community have suddenly decided, without evidence, that cyanide will help these patients. The patients need help, but cyanide is not the answer.
Fantastic — this is something I didn't know I was waiting for!
These three individuals are supremely brave, intelligent, and insightful. Their work must be spread and their persons protected. Someday, they will be viewed as the Solzhenitsyns and Sharanskys of our time and place.
‘Cynical Theories’ is rigorous, nuanced and very well done. Real work went into it. The book is credited to “Helen Pluckrose & James Lindsay”. Given everything I’ve read or heard from them individually since, I now assume the excellent Pluckrose did the bulk of the work. She’s fantastic: intelligent, thoughtful, not a cheap rabble-rouser. She deserves to be better known.
Woke religion magnetizes mediocrities who cannot think through to consequence.
Hmmm, while I greatly support the work of Peter, Helen and James, so far this documentary doesn't really paint them in a great light. Why do we need a minutes long tour through Peter's house? Why do we need to have a looong scene where they are looking at bodybuilder porn?
This whole video is rather... unflattering and it's not really giving much information either.
This is great thanks, i have seen first hand from young parents who have been through university a new morality regarding porn, they actually think that young teens should legitimately view porn. To help with their sexual development and to ease sexual frustration. They were talking about 13 yr olds. This is somethjng i can not accept. Strange times.
I don't get why this is paid for content? That way it's preaching to the "already converted " .
Surely we can organise a Gofundme page to raise the cash to make this open source on YouTube/Rumble etc. It needs to be out there in the Public Domain.
I do wonder how much of this is rooted in the development of ectogenesis, and in relation to the notion amongst some academics that humanity will be "upgraded" not by natural evolution, but by design.... is this all based upon some absurdity that ectogenesis (there are many papers upon the topic including justifications that ectogenesis would free women from the monopoly of child birth) will further humanity, and that in order for ectogenesis to be normalised a blurring of gender roles is required? I actually don't think this is a conspiracy theory, it is the only answer that fits all the jigsaw pieces to my mind; ectogenesis at best is surely likely to lead to eugenics and restrictions of reproductive freedoms, next step "upgrading" humanity? This is pure speculation, but based upon joining up the dots, and with a view to how top down and carefully orchestrated the apparent psyops around this issue, and the apparent strong links with academia; so educated deduction if you will. Happy to explain further why I think this if you wish.
I did see these guys giving a presentation at a conference but had not seen anything further so thanks for this. Absolutely brilliant.
Slightly re-writing a chapter form Mein Kampf is a stroke if genius.
Will cross post on this this evening.
Thanks very much Michael
The sokal hoax and the grievance studies hoax were only small hindrances to the increasing takeover of far-left, woke, white-people-hating, black-people-worshipping, social justice ideology , but every hindrance is worthwhile since it gives us more time before they achieve complete takeover and no longer need to restrain themselves.
