Found it on some forum.

II.7 (gladiator barracks); 8767: Floronius, privileged soldier of the 7th legion, was here. The women did not know of his presence. Only six women came to know, too few for such a stallion.

VII.2.18 (vicolo del Panattiere, House of the Vibii, Merchants); 3117: Atimetus got me pregnant

VII.2.18 (vicolo del Panattiere, House of the Vibii, Merchants); 3131: Figulus loves Idaia

Herculaneum (bar/inn joined to the maritime baths); 10678: Apelles Mus and his brother Dexter each pleasurably had sex with two girls twice.

In a sense, a civilization can fall but it will seem fun, right up until the rollercoaster ride skips off the rails and goes smashing into the ground at high mph.

Where hatred of the Jews came from

January 23, 2016

This was an interesting question, which I had thought about for some months now.

Where anti-Semitism comes from is a puzzle. Most of the accusations against Jews seem, to me, to be after the fact. First, the anti-Semitic believer hates Jews and then takes up or makes up falsehoods to support the hate…..

So where did it start? Why?– Richard Aubrey

From my research, it goes back to Islamic slave raids, where Italian/Lombardian merchant patriarchs and Jews in Europe and the ME, helped in the selling of European slaves to Islamic Caliphs and harems.

Islam had a direct market for slaves, they would go raid for them directly. Then there was a secondary market, economic, where slaves in general were sold, to the highest bidder.

Europe’s DNA was built upon hatred and fear of Islam, and to a lesser extent the Vikings. The Vikings mellowed out pretty soon in Normandy, and converted to Christianity soon afterwards, by around 1000 AD.

Islam was significantly more virulent and aggressive in expansion.

Humans tend to fear foreign enemies, and begin hating them. But it was easier to develop a genetic hatred of Jews, who they could touch and kill, than to take on the Islamic war machine, which they could not even touch. They could only huddle in their fortified baronies and pray.

That’s my theory and research results, at least. Some of it is explained by epigenetics as well.

  1. relating to or denoting a family of languages that includes Hebrew, Arabic, and Aramaic and certain ancient languages such as Phoenician and Akkadian, constituting the main subgroup of the Afro-Asiatic family.
  2. relating to the peoples who speak the Semitic languages, especially Hebrew and Arabic.
    A question in the future is why anti Semitism is only used for the Jews, when in fact that also includes the Arabs too. The Arabs and Muslims have figured this out, but the Westerners only talk about the Jews, as if the only Semitic people are the Jews. That’s why Arabs and Muslims often claim they aren’t anti Semitic. They don’t hate themselves, they just hate the Jews.

John Brown’s life vow

January 6, 2016

In 1837, in response to the murder of Elijah P. Lovejoy, Brown publicly vowed: “Here, before God, in the presence of these witnesses, from this time, I consecrate my life to the destruction of slavery!”[9] Brown was declared bankrupt by a federal court on September 28, 1842. In 1843, four of his children died of dysentery. As Louis DeCaro Jr shows in his biographical sketch (2007), from the mid-1840s Brown had built a reputation as an expert in fine sheep and wool, and entered into a partnership with Col. Simon Perkins of Akron, Ohio, whose flocks and farms were managed by Brown and sons. Brown eventually moved into a home with his family across the street from the Perkins Stone Mansion located on Perkins Hill. The John Brown House (Akron, Ohio) still stands and is owned and operated by The Summit County Historical Society of Akron, Ohio.

Who was Lovejoy?

Elijah Parish Lovejoy (November 9, 1802 – November 7, 1837) was an American Presbyterian minister, journalist, newspaper editor and abolitionist. He was murdered by a pro-slavery mob in Alton, Illinois, during their attack on his warehouse to destroy his press and abolitionist materials.

Lovejoy’s father was a Congregational minister and his mother a devout Christian. He attended Waterville College (now Colby College) in his home state of Maine. From 1824 until his 1826 graduation, while still an undergraduate, he also served as headmaster of Colby’s associated high school, the Latin School (later Coburn Classical Institute). He traveled west and in 1827 settled in St. Louis, Missouri. He worked as an editor of an anti-Jacksonian newspaper, the St. Louis Observer and ran a school. Five years later, he studied at the Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey and became an ordained Presbyterian preacher. Returning to St. Louis, he set up a church and resumed work as editor of the Observer. His editorials criticized slavery and other church denominations.

The Southern slave barons had been initiating violence, paying off the mob for lynchings, since at least 1830. Yet people act like John Brown was the one that initiated the violence and the aggression. They also like to excuse the South’s material inferiority as being part of Southern virtue, that they were “defending” against aggression and tyranny, rather than being the source of it. What they want to cover up is the fact that the North was industrialized and agricultural. The North did not have serfdom or slavery, so people were free to move to cities and initiate the revolution of industry. The South’s material lack, was solely due to their evil of slavery. They could have given it up anytime after 1800, or at least initiated the beginnings of reform.

The South’s Tyranny was not merely pointed at low class blacks working in the fields, but also free whites who were anti slavery. That is the “freedom” the Southern slave barons brainwashed their young males into fighting for.

But as for Brown, the recent actions of the Bundy Ranch/Family reminded me of him, so I looked him up.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Brown_%28abolitionist%29
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elijah_Parish_Lovejoy

He was both more than what history commonly knows him for, but also somewhat less as well.

Brown’s violent excesses were motivated in part by the violence to him and his social circle of pacifists, Quakers, abolitionists, but also by the fact that he didn’t have much of a family to live for any more. Men, who are not the shaking pacifists and cowards the Southern aristocracy accused the abolitionists of being, can do some mighty fine works of war when they have little to nothing to lose. But Bundy is different, of course, his clan is still alive. More than can be said for Waco 1 or Waco 2’s dead, of course.

Lovejoy was only one of the many many people who Slavery forces harassed, killed, lynched, shot at, or chased off. To the Southern land owners… whites were just another form of cattle and livestock, better than the blacks yes… but only in the sense of a prized dog being better than their black field hands.

 

Message from a member of the Oregon op. People throw around False Flag op a lot these days. But even the Abraham Lincoln brigade, a Communist false flag recruiting tool, were made out of patriots and loyalists. Don’t forget the names and causes of the real deal. Especially if they are trapped by forces beyond their comprehension.

Another History of Islam and the Crusades

This is from Stefan Molyneux, something of an outlier in social hierarchies.

Why I don’t listen to social academics and authorities

December 18, 2015

This was my reply to a general internet comment about a person that preferred to believe in academics over random internet commenters like me, because academics had put the work into studying their field and subject.

Con artists have also put half of their life into being professional or studying the bag of tricks, but that doesn’t necessarily mean trust is automatically conferred due to their expertise in comprehending the system.

I prefer to trust in my own judgement over those of sub average or average social authorities. But that’s a question of hierarchy and cultural shock. Some are brought up to defer judgment to a technocrat elite or nebulous authority of elites, although their proof of eliteness is often untested and due to even greater levels of authority, not proof in and of itself.

In the same fashion that the collective defers ultimate authority and obedience to the “System” and individuals resist outsourcing authority/responsibility to unseen bureaucrats in the “System” or strangers, there are cultures which have preferences on a scale, but they are not purely in one camp or another.

On the note of collectivsm -> slavery, that revolves around the issue of which type of slavery. As I term it, there’s Slavery 1.0, Slavery 2.0, and Slavery 3.0.

A system where the uneducated and those who were economically subsistent and reliant on the powerful, such as women or Irish workers, foreigners that don’t speak your language, or lower class servants in the ancient Roman empire, would allow for Slavery 1.0, as the lower class can move to a higher class merely by having education (Roman and Greek slaves could buy their own freedom due to money from their education) or from having resources. They are still subordinate to the ruling doctrine, such as the Helots under the Spartans, or squires under Knights, or serfs under kings and royalty. Yet the unlanded commoner may become a knight, a lesser noble, due to deeds or special favor.

A caste system that does not allow genetic cross transfer or social mobility, such as the Hindu’s caste system with the Untouchables, Islam’s 750+ AD slave trade in Africa and the ME, or 1830’s American Democrat slave plantations, would qualify under Slavery 2.0

A space faring civilization which uses a meritocratic or not system in which a significant percentage of their resource production is manned by slaves, would be between a 2 and a 3. The slaves now comprise a significant portion of the population and is critical for the proper functioning of it. They are so essential, that it would be hard to equate them to the uneducated and disarmed slaves of the American Democrat plantations of 1830. Like the slave soldiers of the Ottomans, once they begin acquiring a critical cog in the system and also power, they may be called slaves later on, but actually treating them as inferior to everyone else, becomes less feasible.

On another note, the United State’s current mainstream culture can be summed up with these precepts.

1. Obey All Authority over you, no matter the orders given.
2. The selfish outliers will be punished.

The tradition and culture may have been focused on the individual, but it has now become the sub culture, not the mainstream. In this fashion, sub cultures can take over the mainstream and reverse the demographics, much like a game of Go. As for a society of individuals not allowing slavery, that of course depends on their definition of an individual. To the Democrat plantation land owners, an individual or a human was only classified as a male white land owner. Women, foreigners, and blacks were genetically considered different and/or inferior. The blacks were born and bred to work the fields so that the white aristocrats would have leisure and time for philosophy and art, the epitome of civilization. That was their justification under their society, why they fought for it. Well, technically the land owners didn’t fight, they were exempt from military service in the US Civil War 1.

What determines the system of slavery and whether it is used or not, is the hierarchy of the social status quo. If the hierarchy is any kind of top down system, there will always be an under class, an inferior spot at the bottom of the totem pole. Some hierarchies try to make this less intolerant by having their servants commanding those lesser than the servants, so that most people can have a superior and an inferior. Like feudalism, that can become stable over time: if the bottom class isn’t a caste system but can actually move up, so they can acquire subordinates of their own. If, however, a society rejects the top down hierarchy system, and adopts a bottom up hierarchy like the Grey economy of the internet, or the non aggression principle of liberty or something other equivalent, post scarcity Banksian derived/based culture, then there is no need for a superior or inferior in a class or hierarchy system.

Average common humans will still prefer to be in a hierarchy, much as pack animals will fight until an alpha, beta, and every other rank below it are established so that everyone understands the order. But voluntary equality or superiority or inferiority between individuals isn’t really an issue equivalent to a System enforcing that hierarchy.
