Western civilization is devouring itself

Western civilization is devouring itself

Dmitry Kosyrev

The man went to holy places, to Jerusalem, on Easter, and was surprised by his own feelings: how good it is to be among normal people (Jews, Palestinians, and many others) who listen with horror and bewilderment to his stories about the madness that is happening in the United States.
Although not only there. The situation is similar in other Western countries. In Jerusalem, the author of the article met a British family, who discussed with him an overdue idea: how to make legs out of Great Britain, where life has become unbearable. Three members of the family (including a student son) made the decision as a whole, the details remain: where and when.
This author is the Am-erican religious philosopher Rod Dreyer, and he also gave a clear definition of what is happening: America and the West are not only plunging into the “dark ages” themselves, they also bring darkness wherever they are ready to accept it. Literally in English (and in Russian) there is a good term: the Age of Enlig-htenment (Enlightenment) – from the word “light”. Dreyer inserts the root “darkness” instead, and the result is Endarkening. The era of anti-enlightenment, going into darkness.
It so happened that two publications about how these people plunge into the “dark ages” converged in the information space. One is Dreyer himself at The American Conservative, which is actually about the frenzied transgenderization of the younger generation. And the second – in American Thinker – about the dangers of milk. Maybe someone remembers the publication, which said the following: “In the past few years, horrors have been escalated mainly in terms of health, since, as it turned out, this has a strong effect on many: from coronavirus to the harm of tomatoes or milk (yes, and such ” scientific research “is)”. So, quite by accident, this – dairy – topic surfaced on the principle of “right there”.
But first about transgender people. What else seems to be new here? Dreyer studies the schedule, not even at school, but at the stage of “preparation for kindergarten.” It includes the study of the rainbow flag, while children need to be explained that each color has its own meaning. Next, they must make such a flag themselves and proudly hang it in the playroom in order to “break the binary of genders established by the white colonizers.”
Well, already in kindergarten they begin to explain to them that some feel like boys, others feel like girls, others feel something else – and it’s time to think about what gender you are.
And if it was just one school. Dreyer recalls that transgender mania has become the official policy of the Democrats and their administration, supported by medical science. For example, the American Academy of Pediatrics has just purged from its ranks a group of specialists “skeptical” about this issue. They were prevented from speaking at the annual conference and generally subjected to “cancellation”. We are dealing with “a society in chaos and moral decline,” says the author (although everything is clear anyway).
And now about milk. Here is a special case. A person with a lot of references to scientific and pseudo-scientific publications tells us something like this: bureaucrats attribute the surge in juvenile delinquency to drugs, “Putin’s inflation”, lack of education, discrimination, unsustainable student debts, but there may be other explanations. A 1979 scientific and peer-reviewed study gives us clear indications of the dependence of behavioral deviations in chronic juvenile delinquents on drinking milk. The current rise in homicides and lawlessness can be attributed to poor home parenting… and consumption of dairy products.
Numerous medical studies link criminal behavior, gang involvement, family dysfunction, adolescent depression, and obesity and intestinal disorders to specific disaccharides and galactose (which are found only in milk).
But the authorities have known for decades, the author recalls, that heart disease, cancer and strokes remain the main killers in America and they are associated with milk, but despite this, the authorities did not require manufacturers to at least put warning labels on packages.
At some point, you begin to understand: something is wrong here, all this is too reminiscent of a parody of the standard texts of anti-smoking fighters. At the end, you reach the phrase: “Not a single cow was disrespected” – and you sigh with relief. And the author’s last name is clearly a parody – Laudermilk, from the word “milk”. Well, then everything is clear and everything is fine. He is joking.
But then you start to check literally dozens of references to “research” on the topic of the terrible harm of milk inserted into his article and you find out that there really are such. Links are real. They really fight with milk, just like with children. Or with cars (in all seriousness they wa-nt to ban them), or dozens of other “harmful things”.
In what world do these people from a self-eating civilization live? How could you get to such a situation that you need to fly across the ocean to Jerusalem in order to communicate with normal people and catch your breath?
At a minimum, we understand from all this why Westerners tend to believe their (Ukrainian) propaganda, which presents a picture of the conflict exactly the opposite of reality: because they live in a dark age, when their heads are bombarded every day with clinical nonsense from the idea that boys and girls are not exists, to the harm of milk.
And one more thing: something in all this nonsense is true. Both the frenzied transgenderization of children, and the growth of juvenile delinquency, along with depression and other horrors.
