The War On Reality

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.

–Philip K. Dick

That is a popular aphorism on the Dissident Right, because it stands in stark contrast to the dominant ideology of our age. The people who rule over us are committed to the belief that says reality will yield to wishful thinking. In fact, they deny reality exists as an objective, measurable thing. That’s where the idea of social construct arises. Our betters are sure that what we foolishly perceive as reality is just an illusion, an artifact of cultural conditioning. If they can convince enough people of this, then observable reality changes.

This is the true divide in the West and why BoomerCons, BuckleyCons, Libertarians and Civic Nationalists are in the same ideological set as Progressives. They accept these assumptions about reality, just with some reservations. The Dissident Right, in contrast, rejects this entirely. Reality, particularly biological reality, is transcendent and independent of human observation. The world as we observe it is quantifiable and measurable. More important, it is largely immune to any tinkering we can do in the short run.

This is most true when it comes to human biology. John Derbyshire did a whole presentation on this at AmRen from the perspective of race. Race realism is just a subset of biological realism. The natural differences between the sexes, IQ differences and personality differences are other aspects. It is why “improving your mindset” sounds laughably ridiculous to someone like me. Your “mindset” is a product of your biology, your genetic makeup. You can no more change it than make yourself taller.

The fact that reality is undefeated, besting all comers, does not stop the cult that rules over of us from continuing to make war on biology.This story is the latest example of how they will destroy the military trying to prove that sex is a social construct.

A number of U.S. Army drill sergeants at Fort Benning, Georgia, have been temporarily suspended from their duties following allegations of sexual misconduct with trainees, the Army base said on Wednesday.

Investigators looking into an initial sexual assault allegation by a female trainee against a drill sergeant at the fort uncovered other incidents of alleged sexual misconduct, prompting a wider investigation, the base said in a statement.

A spokesman declined to say how many drill sergeants had been suspended as part of the investigation, but the statement indicated it was more than one.

Cracking down on sexual assault has been a priority for several years in the U.S. military, which reported in May that anonymous surveys in 2016 found that 14,900 service members experience some kind of kind of sexual assault in 2016, from groping to rape. That was down from 20,300 in 2014, according to the surveys, which are conducted every two years.

People who accept biological reality know it is a lethally stupid idea to have male drill instructors working with female trainees. Men like women, especially young women and they are wired to use every trick in the book to gain access to females. Setting up a situation where males have power over young females in this way, invites the sort of thing the military says they are trying to stop. Having girls in the army is debatable, but if you are, they need to be protected from the males.

Of course, females are wired to seek the attention of high status males. In boot camp, there is no one with higher status to the recruits than the drill instructor. That’s the whole point of the arrangement. The idea is to break down the recruits and build them back up into soldiers. Putting a male in charge of females is going to have the females competing with one another for the attention of their instructor. This is ground floor biology. Even the most disciplined males will be tempted at some point to say yes to the offer.

Again, this is not a new thing. The people putting males in charge of female recruits are the same people putting girls on Navy ships and then acting surprised when the girls get knocked up at sea. Currently, 16% of deployed females aboard ship are pregnant. You cannot serve on a Navy vessel while pregnant so it means these females are reassigned to shore duty. Overall, females in the Navy are 50% more likely to be reassigned to land duty than males, so it is not just pregnancy. It is biological reality.

This means that just about every ship in the fleet has a readiness problem, due to the lack of trained personnel. The Navy has a rule requiring every ship to be at least 25% female, so that means vessels cannot be deployed, because of the shortage of female sailors who are not pregnant. This 25% rule was just implemented. That’s why the pregnancy rates have gone up. It also means the rising pregnancy problem did not result in a reevaluation of the policy. Instead it was met with a new effort to prove that biology is not real.

The thing with the new religion is that it is always at odds with its stated goals. The simple solution to the pregnancy problem is to require all females to be on Norplant. This solves the pregnancy problem. Not only is this never suggested, doing so would set off howls from the cult about sexism. The reason is that such a requirement would require accepting biological reality. Instead of solving the problem or at least mitigating it, the cult prefers to wage a losing battle against biology, destroying the military in the process.

There is a reason reality is undefeated.

The Marine Corps still trains male and female recruits separately and occasionally gets pressure to go full co-ed. Makes me wonder why they hate women.

As a radio operator, I went through the all-male Boot Camp and first month of Infantry school (MCT), then was shipped off to radio school which was co-ed. Having been separated from women for 4 months, we were absolutely shocked at the reality how much less the women (who had just spent 3 months in Boot Camp) could do physically.

Even at the “elite” athlete level, the strongest of the strong, women cannot keep up with men.

I was digging through some of the sports stats and was shocked to find that female shot-put records were at or a little further than men.

Then I found out that the wimmen used a 8.8 pound shot and men used a 16.01 pound.

So even using a ball of *half* the weight women can barely throw it as far as men *at the elite level*.

You can see this dichotomy at any CrossFit gym during the first rounds of the Open. They announce the workouts on Thursday and competitors have until Monday to complete the workout before a certified judge and report their scores. The women’s weights are ALWAYS well below the men’s prescribed weights for whatever movement. And any exercise requiring strong upper body development like pull-ups, bar muscle-ups, etc. will eliminate all but the top 1-2% of females. It’s really funny (in a sad sort of way) to watch how the CrossFit Games, like the Olympics, emphasizes the achievements of female athletes barely… Read more »

It also goes beyond just racial and sex differences. One of the most important things that’s rarely talked about is how we identify with those who are genetically similar to us.

There’s also the reality that Islam and Western Civilization are like oil and water. Europeans knew this 500 years ago, so they booted out the Muslims when they reconquered the Iberian Peninsula and other territories.

These are drill sergeants at an infantry course that just opened up to females this year, so I’m pretty sure the sergeants are male.

The Army sends recruits to different locations based on their MOS – so this was an all-male site until recently. After the Marines I joined the Army National Guard. New soldiers who came to the unit with combat MOS (Armor or Infantry) seemed fairly well-trained. The ones who came from mixed gender schools from the start (Radio Operators, Drivers, etc…) were poorly trained and disciplined, out-of-shape, and generally pissed me off.

Do you actually think a contemporary female has enough self-respect to kill herself after being treated like a goat? No, they will bond with their rapists and convince themselves the haji will love them or that they deserved it, and accept being dominated by a male. Any male.

Woman in the military is debatable, but at the close of an honest debate any rational human would conclude that it is a terrible idea and should be abolished immediately. There is no specialty in the armed forces better served by females than males. As the article states, the presence of females in close quarter environments such as aboard Navy vessels and in boot camp squad bays only intensifies the instinctual requirements both men and women are already hard wired to satisfy. While stressful, those previous examples are mild compared to infantry units spending weeks in close quarters sharing a… Read more »

It’s not solely an issue on front line units. When I worked in nukes, fraternization out in the missile fields was pretty common among security forces, topside personnel, and we even had mixed crews on alerts which presented a lot of challenges. I pulled alerts with a friend of mine, female officer. On a 24-hour nuclear alert, you would rack for maybe 5-6 hours, and the other person would rack for 5-6 hours.

I agree that it’s not solely a front line issue. I even stated that there isn’t a situation in the service where inter-sex fraternization isn’t a potential problem. I would however say that the potential for ultimate disaster is higher along the front lines, unless of course, you had two security force members doing it on the nuke command console and her buttock accidentally depresses the big red launch button. 🙂

My Navy officer husband went on WESTPAC deployment for 5 1/2 mos in 1970. If there had been ANY women aboard the ship, or even any gay guys, I would have been rip-shit, and not the only one. What is the US military thinking? It’s bad enough if they’ve picked up a VD in some Phillipine port, but HIV? or a pregnant gurrll-friend? WTF? Nice for the spouse left behind to wonder about all the possibilities.

Member

It cuts both ways. My dad was Navy, and my mom as an officer’s wife frequently had to “go get” the ladies who hit the bars the instant the ship left Norfolk. When I was single stationed in Japan, I had to be careful at the bars because the Navy wives would be out doing reconnaissance-in-force when their hubbies deployed. Trouble I didn’t want or need.

“Never attribute to delusion that which is undertaken by subversives.”

Yesterday’s essay from Z seemed to imply the opposite of this. I suppose there’s some intellectual point to determining whether the bigger problem is delusion or subversion. But that can lead us into a false dichotomy, which we would do well to avoid.

Delustion and subversion are both abundant, and they are synergistic.

Issac
Guest

Subversion begot delusion. One cannot address the problem of delusion if they are not first addressing subversion. Accusing people of being deluded is also a waste of time. True believers cannot be brought around to new modes of thought. You take down their thought leaders and then they either break from the spell or destroy themselves as rudderless ships of insanity.

Duality or not, conservatism inc. got nowhere in the last half century calling their opponents delusional and the success of neolib/con politics indicates that subversion lead delusion by a very wide margin.

Issac;
Check. Very perceptive observation. Subversion followed by delusion is the short explanation for the utter mess that the US military is now, particularly the Navy.

It was initiated by elite white females and allowed by ‘conservative’ elite white males in the ’80s (pre boomers I might add) because they apparently thought that it wouldn’t matter all that much.

I know it’s bigger than this but it’s the almost infinite financial cost of the limitless number of these things in public policy that boggles my mind.

How much lower could the tax burden be? How much lighter the regulatory burden and footprint of the state?

How much more could we squirrel away for our children instead of lighting their futures on fire.

Of course the cultural and even existential issues are what keeps us up at night, but yeah.. .big money

Agree, and they don’t even know why. They are just destructive high time preference individuals. We used to protect our civilisation from such individuals with something called standards.

Remember those?

They should have DNA so can dishonorably discharge both the pregnant and the impregnator.
But our empire is in our dotage.
I don’t know what malady proved fatal to the British empire – debt weakens every empire. As does decadence in culture.

Here are a few remarks, esp. about the idea of feminist Progs waging “a losing battle against biology”: (1) Sexual dimorphism is the relevant biological term when studying differences between the sexes of a sexually reproducing species. http://www.ask.com/web?q=sexual+dimorphism (2) Homo sapiens is not a static species. Human nature can be altered according to known principles of selective breeding, unconscious natural selection of traits, and genetic mutation. (3) I expect Progs to wage a long war against present human sexual dimorphism in order reduce the obvious inequality of men and women, esp. in terms of size, strength, aggression, and abstract reasoning… Read more »

Here’s a piece of reality in a combat situation that had basically escaped everybody. Even if women were equal to men in every physical category, there would still be a yu-u-uge problem. Woman have these things called vaginas, see which are wide open avenues to their urinary tracts, and consequently to urinary tract infection. Your run of the mill urinary tract infection can hospitalize a woman for several days. One of the problems with combat, on the scale of say Okinawa is that it is filthy. People exposed to it for the first time frequent piss themselves and worse; hence… Read more »

A good book which describes combat conditions is Eugene Sledge’s With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa. One of the best books that I’ve read about ground combat in the Pacific. His description of the conditions on Okinawa are beyond belief. I enlisted in the Navy to avoid mud, dirt and filth in Vietnam. I can’t imagine any woman wanting to live in those conditions.

Most UTI’s do not require hospitalization. One study puts the figure at 16.7%. Actually, men are more likely to be admitted for UTI’s than women and the elderly are at special risk. But point taken.

Obviously, the Navy needs to fund a study exploring why male Sailors are not getting pregnant.

The Navy should an all-lady boat or two. A couple of the Ticonderoga class ships would be best. All-lady ships would mean no more pregnancies, no more special treatment, certain facilities needn’t be segregated and it would be a boon for recruiting and PR. It would make a great reality show and would let the Navy know just how correct they are about some of their policies.

I think it’s absolutely scandalous that our brave warriors are being subjected to “assault”!

I am a black-belt level martial artist of many years experience – both as a student and as a teacher. As I am a scientist and medic by training, I have known about sexual dimorphism and the differences between the human male and female for a long time. And of course all of the politically-correct denial of these realities. I just wish some of these deniers of male-female “reality” could come train at our school for a while. It would prove edifying. To paraphrase the great boxer Mike Tyson, “everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.”… Read more »

As a broader comment, the problem of deciding on ‘reality’ is in the difference between thought processes, and can best be typified by the difference between doctors and lawyers. Doctors examine a system external to them, and their ‘success’ is determined by how accurately they modify their view of what’s going on to match that system and can effect a change in it. It’s a highly ‘results based’ process. Lawyers on the other hand, see ‘the truth’ as being whatever they can convince the jury of. And the only time ‘results’ come into play is in the winning of the… Read more »

George Soros has a theory of “reflexivity” that he applies to the markets. It attempts to explain market behavior, while at the same time it offers an insight into how to exaggerate that same behavior. A street definition of reflexivity is that people see things happening, react to it in their own lives, herd follow of sorts, and make the change bigger and stronger than it would otherwise be. Manipulating the environment can intensify that crowd behavior. It is how short term cascading effects can occur. Soros is trying to apply reflexivity to social issues, to drive behaviors to reinforce… Read more »

It’s tempting, and a little fun, to think of this as deliberate Progressive attempt to sabotage the US Military from within. However, ZMan reminded me of something very important a few days ago: never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.   The current state of the Navy is better explained as a failure of Progressive do-gooders to think of the long-term and second-order implications of their decrees. The problem isn’t that the Cult is trying to actively destroy the military (or the country). The problem is that the Cult makes decisions emotionally. It’s all about the… Read more »

Peter; You may be right about the situation today being largely due to Prog stupidity, but when the ’60s radicals and their marxist mentors took over congress in 1972 they began pushing for women in the military as part of the wider ‘women’s rights movement’s’ strategy. Their intent was to subvert the patriarchy in general and the military was viewed as the peak of the patriarchy. Hence subverting the military was a high priority for the cultural marxists/feminists of that time (and now). They intended to do this by expanding women’s roles and rights everywhere, demanding gender equality and female… Read more »

Let us thank squishy Bush 1 for federal sexual harassment law. Lawyers and judges are the gun-toting bandit mercenaries.

The Bush gangsters applied military policy to the private sector- such as drug testing, per that criminal Bennett- bringing true Hayek’s nightmare of military planners organizing a civilian society.

Member
Al, I wouldn’t disagree with any of that – but I’d argue that it actually bolsters my argument. The Progs attacked the military because they saw it as the Government Department of Evil Penis Oppression, instead of – y’know – an army, navy, and air force whose job it is to kill people and blow stuff up in defense of the nation’s interests. Their goal was to defeat their imaginary fantasy villains; they didn’t even know, or care, what the military’s actual job was. Lefties think of the military as a barbaric organization that recruits redneck psychopaths and trains them… Read more »

Peter; Can’t basically disagree with a thing you say. I’d even forgotten about Clinton’s excellent Mogadishu adventures. We used to call it ‘national security seen as social work’. I’d guess I was thinking that you were coming down solely on the incompetence/stupidity/delusion side of the evergreen __ Right controversy about Prog motivation. Eight years were wasted arguing whether the malignant mulatto’s policies were motivated by ‘malice or incompetence, pick one’. (Embrace the healing power of AND, I say – not original to me). I was in the military at the time and I knew damn well at the time that… Read more »

Excellent closing point. One of my “aha” moments, a few years out of college, was recognizing that Conservatives basically observed things, rationally, assumed what they saw was reality, and formed their worldview from it. Liberals started with their ideological worldview and warped reality to fit into their preconceived notions. So when a Conservative’s assumptions are shown to be wrong, he shrugs his shoulders, mutters “crap happens”, cracks a beer, and adjusts accordingly. When a Liberal’s assumptions are shown to be wrong, his brain short-circuits. It means the Blessed Vision is flawed, and that’s not possible. So the explanation they draw… Read more »

How does the Israeli army handle the high number of female soldiers? I imagine they have racked up many ‘teachable moments.’

Al from da Nort
Guest
Steve; My impressions from having been to Israel a number of times in non-military capacities and from talking with Israeli work colleagues during those times, ~15 – 20 years ago, is that females were almost exclusively in single sex units. At least such were all I ever saw out and about then and recently when I returned as a tourist. Got the same account from the Israeli tour guides a couple of years ago. They agreed that numerous females had day/shift jobs in mixed-sex support echelon & HQ formations. But all lived in single sex dorms (unless married). IOW, this… Read more »

Just so you know, Norplant (and any other long-term hormonal contraceptive, such as Depo-Provera) works at least some of the time by being an abortifacient. Hormonal contraceptives do not always prevent ovulation, and in such cases, the newly conceived embryo is prevented from implanting, which kills it. So these “contraceptives” actually result in very early-term abortions.

And I would agree that women do not belong on Navy ships. It’s insanity.
