The best: Stories of the strife of individuals confronting, fending off and challenging frequent low blows

Of this terribly cruel reality.

And on sex pleasure disadvantages between genders.

Writing about your ideas, position, concepts, world view model… should not cover many pages.

Actually, if you have a fascistic or communist tendency of considering history from a mass perspective, the reality of the world is disgustingly simple and straightforward and should not cover blackening many pages.

De Gaulle said:  We pretended to fight confused passions. We struggled for a cohort of denied and refused principles. And we strove to pay back a very cruel reality.

What is most impressive and worthwhile is writing about individuals on how they confronted and fended off the frequent low blows that everyone of us suffered and experienced with various degrees of long-term dysfunctional consequences.

Serious authors implicitly want to believe in the free-will of people (against demonstration to the contrary) and how they challenged the bitter and cruel reality by elevating their spirit and acquiring valued habits to sustain the long haul.

Otherwise, materials for writing will be dry and totally unpleasant to read.

And the purpose of writing will be confused since barely anyone is interested in lifeless topics and stories.

We don’t think of changing our life unless and before we canvass a satisfactory model of how we want the world to be changed.

What is terribly human is that rare are the people who remember or find the courage to tackle the second phase in their life: Mainly changing their behaviours, one at a time, in order to be faithful to their quest for a better quality of life to all.

Jean Paul Sartre told de Gaulle: When I read what I published decades ago, I don’t understand much of what I meant. It is as my double was dictating to me. All these lucubration trying to affirm the free-will of individuals and encouraging them to stand fast. It is my double who is the clever one and I have been carrying him all along.

As all reputations, mine was also build on misunderstanding.

The most interesting topics that touch our deepest chords are how we describe, feel about, and comprehend the other gender. (Why is it always the Other?)

In this case, male authors had a field day in the history of literature, since they imagined they knew a lot about females.

Female authors knew, at a certain age, that they had not much rich and worthy materials to write about male: They reverted to talk about the other females, shedding new insight on female psychic, early training for acquired habits and skills and behaviour.

What was lacking is male taking seriously female works to read and appreciate.

Evidences show that females have overwhelming advantages over males, particularly on reaching a certain age, say over 30.

Females have a natural endowment for taking great pleasure in sex. And they can do it with other beautiful, younger and fresh females.

And they can design a personalized dildo that perform wonderfully, anytime and anywhere.

What man has but his hand? Even a thousand hands will not make any difference in results: despair and depressive periods for not being that endowed to enjoy sex.

This relic of passive partner, as aging diminishes his strength and endurance.

 

 

Reactions of world leaders to Pearl Harbor attack by Imperialist Japan on Dec. 7, 1941?

On Dec. 7, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor (Hawaii) and destroyed half the US naval fleet. The two airplane carriers Lexington and Enterprise were saved: They were transporting airplanes to the islands of Guam, Wake and Midway. Admiral Kimmel decided that the fleet would be safer in Hawaii. since the plane carriers were not able to cover their movements.

All these countries had efficient decoding means of secret messages and orders, and Japan knew that the US has decided to protect its colonies in the Far East, particularly the Philippines, and to check Japan’s territory expansion.

The US had started in earnest, even before WWII started, to relocate many navy shipbuilding facilities to the west coast, particularly in Los Angeles.

Four weeks ago, Germany encouraged Japan to declare war on the US as it evaluated that Roosevelt is doing his best to fail all negotiations.

1. Churchill was following the development on the Russian front and harassing the British generals in Libya: “You are not audacious enough to engage Rommel…”.

This morning, after hearing the news of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Churchill is hopping like a kid and wants to immediately be connected to Roosevelt.

Sure,  the Russians are inflicting 95% of all German casualties, but the US engagement in the war is a definite victory. Churchill is behaving years younger: “The destiny of Nazi Germany is now sealed, and Mussolini is done with. Japan will be reduced to dust…”

Churchill is already viewing himself as the pivot of the Great Alliance.  De Gaulle beg to differ: Churchill will be at the beck of Roosevelt who will barely suffer Churchill’s decisions.

Churchill set sail on Dec. 12 to meet with Roosevelt: His strategy is to convince Roosevelt that the primary enemy is still Germany, and the Atlantic Ocean the main battlefield

2. Stalin does not show his jubilation and deep relief.  His is anxious that the US military supplies will now be delayed in order to check Japan’s expansion in the Pacific. Stalin wants also to remind Roosevelt that Germany is the main enemy., and is harassing England to open a second front in the Balkans or in France to give Russia a breathing space…

3. De Gaulle learns the news on the radio in his British house of Ellesmere.  He is saying to Dewavrin (nicknamed Passy): “Now the war is definitely won. The future is preparing two phases:

1.  How to save Germany after the war by the allies, and

2. A potential global war between the US and the Soviet Union.  The US might be defeated in that challenge if it fails to take the necessary timely measures.

4. Mussolini was ecstatic this time around: The invasion of Russia however disturbed Mussolini greatly, especially that Hitler warned him only half an hour before the incursion. Mussolini had said then: “I wish this time that the Russian would give him a good lesson. I should be fortifying the Italian borders against the inevitable German occupation of Italy. But it is too late: When among the wolves, all you can do is howl like them…”

Old Testament stories? Not much of humanism

Note: A re-edit of 2009 post

The Old Testament was written in the last century before Christ in Hellenistic Alexandria (Egypt)  by a group of Jews who needed to have a history of their own.

Judaism, Islam, Medieval Catholic of Rome, and the USA affiliates religious sects based on the Old Testament are essentially “theo-centrist”: They believe that God is the real King in this world and that the rights of human come in second.

Mankind has to pay the price for all calamities to satisfying a mythical God who is tailor-made to the interest of the religious hierarchies.

The Roman and Greek (Hellenistic) cultures regarded the Jewish religion at the antipodes of humanism, the negation of philo-thropia.

Actually, cultures that adored idols barely persecuted other religions on the ground that corresponding idols (for fertility, agriculture, war…) were available anywhere they ventured overseas. The functions of the idols were the same anywhere they traveled.

The further apartheid Israel slips into theocracy  the stronger Islam fundamentalists acquire relevance in Islamic World.

The two religions are the same in nature of God-center and it is the corresponding “unique God” fighting for the unique position. T

he people take backstage in that mythical fight.  The people are suffering mindless terrorism and counter-terrorism on both sides, humiliation, apartheid behaviors, and blood is shed in the name of the powerful unique God.

Judaism and Islam are alienating their devoted members; it is as if the religious leaning individual has either to think “I am not what I am”, and then for convenience sake, he finds a verse “demonstrating” “I am what I am Not“.  Their God does not want that an individual believes “I am what I am”.

The God of papal Rome split the world in the 16th century in two:

The world East of Rome belonged to colonial Portugal and the western part to colonial Spain.

The God of the fleeing tribes from Egypt under command of Moses allocated fertile lands to them in Canaan (This is a fictitious story that never took place).  By the by, the map planned by Jehovah extended to Samaria and Syria.

Created Israel by a single vote majority in the UN in 1948, gave the Jews lands of Palestinians.

The Palestinian cause of returning  to their lands, establishing a recognized independent State by the UN, and the return of Palestinian refugees in camps in Lebanon, Jordan, and Syria requires a powerful impartial mediator (go-between) that can enforce and supervise the execution of the treaties.  So far, this mediator is not available since the successive US governments refused to consider the Palestinians as an entity.

The USA is playing the role of “embedded journalist” in tank convoys with the marching Israeli army.

The USA can but refuses to take on that dangerous initiative.  The US institutions made sure that a Bible rest on bed tables in each hotel room for night reading.  

After the 1967 preemptive war and Israel conquering more lands that it could shew on, the successive US Administrations held the entire US citizens hostages to the new conservative religious ideology;.

The US citizen has now to believe that the purpose of the US is to convert the Jews into so sort of Christianism in order to quicken the arrival of the second Messiah.

The mythical “pilgrims” story who landed by mistake on Cape Code and were fed for two years by the Indians took on another dimension.

The US wants its citizens to believe that the pilgrims were fleeing England religious persecutions on the ground that they held the Old Testament as a divine Book and its laws to be followed exactly by the letter.

Thus, the US wants to spread this myth that it would be committing parricide if it exerted undue pressures on Israel.

Actually, half the Congress members do not even read the laws that APAC submit to them to vote on; it is not even a matter of catering to their Zionist financial contributors.

Germany, France, and Italy are still playing the role of “afflicted penitents” even after 70 years of the “yellow patch” discriminating against the Jews.

France, not only refuses to react on the countless humiliations suffered by its diplomats and French citizens in Israel, but insists on heaping extraordinary favors in expression of the primacy of its Jewish minority:  The president of “The Republic”, the Prime Minister, the ministers and most of the deputies of the Parliament have to assist to Jewish religious ceremony.

France was the prime State to have supported unconditionally Israel since its creation, and the aid increased during de Gaulle: the socialist government delivered the nuclear power plant and De Gaulle the most sophisticated fighter jets Mirages.

Germany is still building nuclear submarines, free of charge for Israel.  Berlusconi of Italy wishes he can be a Prime Minister in Israel to exercise his fascist ideology with total impunity.

Germany, France, and Italy have the job to frequently re-financing the infrastructures that Israel destroys in the West Bank and Gaza.

England, Spain, Finland, Denmark, Norway would not turn the left cheek to the humiliations of Israel or hide the atrocities committed by Israel against human rights and dignity.  That is why, Israel dare not humiliate the citizens and diplomats of those States.

So far, Israel felt free, untouched, and immune to baffle all UN charters, conventions, and treaties.

When George Mitchell (US mediator in the Palestinian cause) submitted the report of the Commission of Investigation in 2001 then, Ariel Sharon defied the World community stating: “Nobody has the right to bring Israel before any international court of justice.
