Bleak Theology: Hopeful Science

Do not go full Kardashian

When the woman are corrupted and educating each other to be degenerate society is lost.
And their souls are in peril.

Ignore the rhetoric, and look a the behaviour. I expanded a /pol/ tweet so you can see what people are saying shamelessly — we have slept with 60 people. we will sleep with a new man most nights, my husband is deployed and I want a good rogering. If you tell these women that this is being a Kardashian they will ignore you, because they have been taught that they are empowered, and that this is liberation.

But you should never go full Kardashian. That family is a scandal, and all who are near them suffer.

Besides, they put their souls at peril.

Hebrews 3:12-19

12Take care, brothers and sisters, that none of you may have an evil, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. 13But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” so that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. 14For we have become partners of Christ, if only we hold our first confidence firm to the end. 15As it is said,

“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

16Now who were they who heard and yet were rebellious? Was it not all those who left Egypt under the leadership of Moses? 17But with whom was he angry forty years? Was it not those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? 18And to whom did he swear that they would not enter his rest, if not to those who were disobedient? 19So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief.

Why is this happening? It is because the young generally believe what they are taught, and what they are taught is a lie. The first lie in the quote below is that Socrates was not interested in truth. He was. It was the Sophists who are disinterested in truth, but instead want to defend convention. This Canadian Sophist masquerades as a professor of classical studies.

Socrates did not believe in a “disinterested pursuit of truth,” and neither should we.
Truth depends on different perspectives and lenses, and this is what experts in the humanities — the so-called social justice warriors — bring to education. Critical theories about race, gender and sexuality are not undermining education. Rather, they complicate and expand our understanding of familiar topics, including those in my own field of classics like ancient Roman imperialism and the nature of Greek homosexuality.
Professors should not just serve as referees in classroom debates about topics like gender-neutral pronouns. Rather, as experts in their field, they should provide students with the best tools available to engage in debate.
I regularly teach about controversial and offensive topics, including rape, war, imperialism, slavery and racism, but I never simply present “both sides” neutrally and without the context necessary for students to grapple with such issues fairly and meaningfully. Before my students read about Aristotle’s theories of natural slavery, for example, they have already learned about ancient slavery in general. After they read Aristotle, I guide the discussion by suggesting ways Aristotle’s ideas on slavery can be critiqued, even by his own work.

What we are seeing here is the modernist fallacy. We are correct because we are alive and in the $current_second this is the accepted truth. There are no truths. There is only power.

The test of this is that no one can live as such. You need certainty. You need fidelity. You need to be able to trust your beloved , rely on the essentials being available — and have the skills to acquire them.

This means we cannot live as party twinks and girls. We are not children, we are grown, we have moral agency.

And we see the twinks and girls being turned into commodities by tindr and grindr and call it evil. They are going beyond full Kardashian to full Orc.

And they are losing their humanity, their soul, while they desperately signal the virtues of the current moment.
