Why single mothers are so dangerous submitted by Trigglypuff to whatever

aekotra 4 points 12 points (+16|-4) ago

Exactly; this is classic statistical misrepresentation. Nearly every one of these statistics is meaningless without knowing the fatherless and motherless sample totals. The trick being played is that most readers assume the totals are equal and go about their business thinking they learned something.

Attn Qanon - This is a response to NEON REVOLT, who implied that v/GreatAwakening could be INFILTRATED because 2 users on our ping list had questionable usernames submitted by srayzie to GreatAwakening

Neon literally has a blog post where he tries to lay claim to the word "cabal" and how he was solely responsible for popularizing the term. What more do you need? Ignore this chuckle fuck.

From 2013!? What the fuck do you think happened? ISIS happened, genius. The US decimated that country. You pull out now and ISIS takes over almost immediately.

Rabbi: Jews are fighting alongside their Muslim brothers against Old Europe submitted by The_Tinamou to politics

aekotra 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

Your statement is Irrelevant. Followers of Judaism wrote the Talmud, but Hasidic Jews are not a problem: Khazarian Jews are. Not because they're Jewish, but because they are of Ashkenazi decent, originally from the Khazar region. The Askenazi's are imbued with a culture of perceived superiority over other peoples and wish to undermine all other ethnicities by subterfuge and deception. So yes, he is a disgusting Khazar.

"White people should stop panicking about losing their land in South Africa" - Newsweek submitted by testu_nagouchi to news

aekotra 1 points 0 points (+1|-1) ago

This is a condemnation of the dogma of spiritual "rules" and an attempt to impress upon the listener the spiritual purpose behind each one.

Regarding love for one's enemies, this is impenetrable to many as there multiple lessons within. We should clarify "love" first: selfless, condition-less, giving.

Your enemy may be hateful, confused, aggressive, and delusional. But you know, as a human yourself, how easy it is to fall into these mental traps: to be led around by the nose by emotions, temperament, or ignorance and do terrible things that you often regret later. Yes, you may be far better than him at avoiding the traps but empathize with him nonetheless!

If you regard this person as purely enemy, the only thing it will accomplish is breeding fear and hate in you. This is self-destructive. Instead, regard this person as who he is: your fellowman, your brother, as confused as his current state may be.

So confused is your enemy that he believes there is something to be gained by attacking and thieving from you. If he believes it, then let him! The validity of his belief is irrelevant. You know it will leave him satisfied only temporarily. Resist and he will just re-double his efforts. He will struggle to think of you as weak: you give freely without fear. He will struggle to take advantage of you: you experience no disadvantage. He'll be left perplexed and pacified, if not now then later. No loss of material things nor any insult can move you, can it? If it can, then you must search within for the reasons.

Little is learned by loving those who mean you no harm; it's easy to do! But how will you respond when faced with the opposite kind of person? Will you mirror their anger and hatred toward you and defile yourself in the process? Or will you be unmovable, unshakeable, and loving? Ask yourself: who has the authority to upset me? Do these emotions help me or hinder me? What is not needed is discarded. This is a lesson.

Does loving your enemy have any result? It is inevitable: his internal conflict must be resolved. He knows you don't fear him and he derives no feeling of superiority this way. His hate and attacks are impotent and hasn't garnered the vitriolic response that has satisfied him in the past. He's unable to make you suffer. Even the most deranged are able to recognize loving actions and you gave freely of yourself despite his hateful behavior. He finds it increasingly difficult to be hateful toward you. He must, eventually, ask himself "why?". This question can only be avoided for so long until it drives him mad. When he understands the answer he is an enemy no more.

Love your enemy to avoid hurting yourself.
Love your enemy so your brother can heal himself.

To be clear, the text does not say "do not defend yourself" or even "do not be violent". If your enemy is physically depriving or attacking and you judge the threat to be a serious hindrance to yourself or otherwise, then respond accordingly. "Serious" will have different meanings depending on your spiritual perspective. But consider this: when you engage in combat, how do you fight? With rage, vengeance, or dispassion? In the heat of battle, what is your intent? Destruction or preservation? Do you lust after your opponent's suffering or is a fight simply a means to an end?

God is absent from this explanation: it's more about the practicality of the rule. But there are holes that are only satisfied by expanding the explanation with God in mind. Perhaps for another day!

There are many paths but there is only one Way.
