I have been thinking for a while, about the concept of consent. On a very sub-rosa level mostly, given various dribblings from Feminazism in the past re rape and consent and suchlike. It boils down to the old and very sensible maxim:
You can't rape a willing woman.The fact that she changes her mind after the fact of consensual sex does not change what happened. It was consensual sex. Never mind the insanities of the left and feminazis and the white knight brigade and etc.
A few weeks ago a girl I know had a little bleat about Fifty Shades of Limp-Wristed-BDSM. She proclaimed to all-and-sundry that she'd not read it (yeah right) and said that what bothered her (aka got her all hot-and-horny bothered) was the non-consenting nature of it. (She hasn't read it, yet the non-consensual nature bothered her. Mental disconnect.)
Puh-leeze, retard. Anyone and everyone in the BDSM scene is by definition 100% aware and fully-consenting to be treated like shit, used as a toilet, beaten-and-tortured, repeatedly forced to orgasm, forcibly penetrated at random (most especially when they say "no! please! no! stop! no!" and cry uncontrollably), with whatever objects that their "user" want's to penetrate them with, et-fucking-cetera.
This is on an individual level.
Step back and take a look at a cultural level.
Aaron Clarey has an excellent piece on why he doesn't care about the latest London terror attack:
Before you accuse me of being cold, heartless, evil, or a psychopath, understand the point of this post is one akin to the Serenity Prayer. A very important philosophical epiphany many people never realize, but should as it is vital to their psychological well being and mental health. It is one of accepting reality and not getting worked up in the world of theory. And the London attacks, like previous and any future terrorist attacks, are/will continue to make my point until the point in time something is actually done about Islamic terror. And I strongly suggest you set aside emotions, politics, and even your own sense of self-survival to clearly see and hear the point I'm trying to make.
First, "What is it this time?"
Be it the Nice attack in France.
The bombing in Germany's market square.
The Boston marathon bombing.
The Cologne sexual assault party.
The Orlando gay night club shooting.
The hotel bombing in Mumbai.
It's very apparent that nothing new is going to happen. The media will immediately rush to say it wasn't confirmed that it was a Muslim who did this. Then, when it's discovered it was, they will rush out to say Muslims fear a backlash in their communities before the bodies get cold. There will be furor on the internet on the right demanding we "do something about this." And people on the left will rush to say it's racism to point out the attacks came from Muslims.
But in the end NOTHING different will happen.
NOTHING.In this he is 100% correct. Nothing different will happen.
Why is this?
Because the Western world is - at least on some level - 100% aware and fully-consenting in it's own suicide.
Sweden. Norway. Germany. The USA. If they were not suicidal, they would stop it.
A bullet to the back of the head. No problems. Finis.
So I left this comment:
Who says that you have no soul, Aaron? I think that you have plenty.
You are simply being realistic. These "victims" are fully consenting "adults" in their own self-destruction. On a deep level I think that they are fully-aware of it also.
You don't get paid to keep them from committing suicide. You don't get points for keeping them from committing suicide. They have the full right - muh freedumb! - to commit suicide.
On that deep level, inside themselves, they are so miserable on an existential level that they are 100% okay with committing suicide. On that deep existential level, they are quite happy to help their fellows commit suicide also. This is why they scream and rant and froth at the mouth whenever someone attempts to stop them.
What they don't have is the right to commit murder, of you and your family and friends. So protect yourself and avoid the suicidal. Let them die on their own.Remember. They do have the right to commit suicide, individually and as an aggregate. They do not have the right to commit murder.
In the face of such overwhelming idiocy, let them have at it. Just keep your distance and treat it as a filter, allowing only those who are not suicidal into your lives.
Remember that 99% of the world is retarded. You don't have to allow them under your skin, or into your lives. (Stoicism? Hmmm.)
Good luck and live well.
