Decolonizing the Meal

     It is well established that when the Left qualify the word “justice”, they mean anything but. “Food Justice“, then means, if properly and fully implemented, Holodomor (if we are lucky). Now Sen. Cory Booker has embraced this insanity, which has become quite widespread in academia.

     The latest example?

     A class by California State University Fullerton Professor Dana Collins about how Capitalism = starvation (because Holodomor was orchestrated by Kulaks, dontchaknow…):

“A new course at Cal State Fullerton aims to bring students’ attention to the ‘key social inequalities’ involved in the production and consumption of food in the modern world.

“[To help student] ‘understand how all food has a social life, which includes its production within a global food system that rests upon and reproduces global social inequalities;’ and to motivate them to ‘learn about, imagine, and act upon the possibilities of food justice!'”

     Further, the requirement for the class requires students to write “a recipe that is decolonized”…

     This notion of “food justice” must be understood in the Leftist doctrine of “equity“. Ultimately, the Left believe in neither equality of opportunity nor of equality of outcome. They believe in “equity”, a concept that dictates that each minitude of people have a proportional share of the final input.

     This Progressive idea of “democracy” means that privileged groups must have their privilege compensated by elevating the voice of the oppressed, even if this means silencing some altogether. Thus, “democracy”, to the Left, requires that “some… are more equal than others”.

Socialism and Bread Shortages: Venezuela Edition

     What is it with command and control socialism and resultant bread (or rice) shortages?

     Venezuela is now arresting bakers for waging “economic war” against the regime:

“In a press release, the National Superintendent for the Defense of Socioeconomic Rights said it had charged four people and temporarily seized two bakeries as the socialist administration accused bakers of being part of a broad ‘economic war’ aimed at destabilizing the country.”

     This is where grand dreams of a socialist utopia always result in slavery to the state, where those who do not do the impossible are labeled as saboteurs, wreckers, and kulaks.

     And just what, specifically, did this “war” by the bakers consist of?

     The sin of making “specialty items, like sweet rolls and croissants”. Further:

“The government said bakeries are only allowed to produce French bread and white loaves, or pan canilla, with government-imported flour.”

Time Crystals

     The following message was delivered via hypercube from a scientist by the name of “John Smith” working at the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce…

Pictured: A generic scientist working on what definitely ISN’T a Metabilis crystal and has nothing to do with spiders…

Some of you have heard reports of a “time crystal” which silly Earth scientists have dared to attempt to create, which they describe as such:

“Despite being forbidden in equilibrium, spontaneous breaking of time translation symmetry can occur in periodically driven, Floquet systems with discrete time-translation symmetry. The period of the resulting discrete time crystal is quantized to an integer multiple of the drive period, arising from a combination of collective synchronization and many body localization. Here, we consider a simple model for a one-dimensional discrete time crystal which explicitly reveals the rigidity of the emergent oscillations as the drive is varied. We numerically map out its phase diagram and compute the properties of the dynamical phase transition where the time crystal melts into a trivial Floquet insulator. Moreover, we demonstrate that the model can be realized with current experimental technologies and propose a blueprint based upon a one dimensional chain of trapped ions. Using experimental parameters (featuring long-range interactions), we identify the phase boundaries of the ion-time-crystal and propose a measurable signature of the symmetry breaking phase transition.”

It is clear that this is but #FakeScience by the ascertain that the crystals’ patterns repeating not in space, but in time—which ignores the fact that it doesn’t consider the 5th dimension of space, and that time without the relative dimensions in space are useless, even if one were to obtain the Rassilon Imprimatur!

Now, where did I put that sonic screwdriver…

Wannabe Space Alien Has Come For Our Children

     Apparently “space alien” is a gender, or that being human is just a “social construct”…

“Meet 22-year-old Vinny Ohh, a Los Angeles transgender man who identifies as an alien. Yes, you read that right. No, not an illegal alien, an extraterrestrial. After spending nearly $50,000 in cosmetic surgeries, he intends to fork over another $160,000 to get his genitals removed. Oh, and when he gets older, he plans to adopt kids.”

     Just how insane does a person have to be to seek this “correction” to appear to be a space alien?

“Furthermore, these procedures are dangerous, so Ohh could ‘absolutely not’ get them done in the United States. The transitioning alien told “This Morning” that he is considering two doctors in Sweden and one in Thailand — yes, Thailand — for these procedures.”

     In a sane society this man would be locked up prevented from contacting any children.

     Of course, California is no longer sane.

Cannibal News Network

     How low in the ratings does CNN have to go before they resort to cannibalism? As low as they were when they decided to have a spiffy segment where one of their presenters drinks from a skull and eats human brain.

     Literally.

     To be fair, if a cannibal threatened to cut your head off, you might just nibble on a bit of gray matter…

“The Aghori persuade Aslan to bathe in the Ganges, a river that Hindus considers sacred. An Aghori guru smears the ashes of cremated humans on his face. And, at the Aghori’s invitation, Aslan drinks alcohol from a human skull and eats what was purported to be a bit of human brain.

“‘Want to know what a dead guy’s brain tastes like? Charcoal,’ Aslan wrote on Facebook. ‘It was burnt to a crisp!’

“At one point, the interview soured and one cannibal threatened Aslan: ‘I will cut off your head if you keep talking so much.’ Aslan, in turn, said to his director, ‘I feel like this may have been a mistake.’

“And when the guru began to eat his own waste and hurl it at Aslan and his camera crew, the CNN host scurried away.”

     At least they didn’t film an abortion wherein the abortionist was wearing a clown costume.

     F**k, I hope I didn’t give them any ideas…

Euthanasia No Longer a Choice in the Netherlands

     Just when you thought the Netherlands couldn’t become more morbidly—insane with their obsession for slaughtering people via euthanasia, from killing children and ripping organs from the still living, to legitimizing ennui as a medically appropriate reason to die—the Dutch have proven that nothing to do depraved and barbaric for their euthanasia lust: It is now legal for a doctor who euthanasia someone who is actively declaring that they want to live while struggling physically against their own murder:

“A Dutch woman doctor who asked an elderly patient’s family to hold her down while she administered a fatal drug dose has been cleared under Holland’s euthanasia laws.

“…

“In this case, the woman, who was suffering from dementia, had earlier expressed a desire to have her life ended when she felt the ‘time was right.’

“According to case notes, the woman, who lived in a nursing home, showed signs of fear and anger. She would also wander around the premises at night.

“The end came when a doctor put a soporific into her coffee before administering a lethal injection.”

But as the doctor tried to administer the injection, she began to struggle and the doctor had to seek the family’s help to complete the procedure.”

The Ides of March

Caesar:
Who is it in the press that calls on me?
I hear a tongue shriller than all the music
Cry “Caesar!” Speak, Caesar is turn’d to hear.

Soothsayer:
Beware the ides of March.

Caesar:
What man is that?

Brutus:
A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March.

Euthanasia in Nevada: Life Coming Up Snake Eyes

     The Nevada Legislature is considering SB261, that lets doctors proscribe death as an acceptable medical treatment:

“Senate Bill 261, introduced by Sen. David Parks, D-Las Vegas, allows a patient over 18 years old to request life-ending drugs if their conditions are terminal and likely to result in death within six months. At least two doctors would have to verify the diagnosis.

“The patient must be a Nevada resident and mentally competent to make the life-ending decision. It would also require the patient be able to self-administer the drugs.”

     Many a year ago, the Netherlands legalized euthanasia, with the stern promise that only rational adults with scant months to live would be allowed to “die with dignity,” with claims that this would lead to doctors killing off patients without the patients consent declared to be a “slippery slope fallacy.”

     That slippery slope has turned out to be not so fallacious after all. Netherlands, as well as Belgium and many other European countries, have tossed aside that promise to revel in the fait acompli of slaughtered children, harvesting organs for the mentally ill (and perhaps from the still living), and even forcibly killing people as they pleaded that they want to live, not to mention the underreporting of dead babies and other innocents.

     Even in the United States, in states that have legalized it, patients are being pushed to kill themselves by offering to pay for the death drugs while denying life-saving treatments.

     So spare us the falsity of a hollow promise, o denizens of the legislature!

     SB261 is gambling with the people’s lives, and it might just end up snake eyes for you.
