Yes, sexbots.

Apparently these are already here with more robust “life-like” features and physical abilities on the way.

First reactions?

Ah, no. This is not an advance. My first reaction is to call this a fall into perversity. I mean further perversity.

Talk about the objectification of women. I mean, if this isn’t it, then the term never referred to anything.

I have heard that these are an answer for loneliness. Apparently the dog has failed as has man’s right hand. No longer able to be satisfied watching 10 men pounding the living hell out some tiny slut through a computer screen, he will now be able to invite all of his fellow jack-offs over for a real romp.

The only reason Lenore from Joss Whedon’s Serenity (see photo at top of post) looked like a real life sexbot is because it was played by an actual human. The one’s they have now look dead. There is something missing. A soul. It gives me the creeps. This is like Jeffrey Dahmer’s psychology given manifestation.

What happens when men, now really unrestrained in satisfying hatever cruel lusts they can conjure, seek to experience this with a flesh woman. A being he is little used to and that does not tailor itself to his whims.

I came across this story in The Mirror where Dr. Kathleen Richardson says the following:

“Sex is a co-experience between two people but society has turned it into a product.

“Men have uncoupled sex from relationships so completely that they can now enter into these fantasies and have sex with dolls.

“They are not pedalled as products though, they are pedalled as girlfriends – and that is dangerous for women.

“When they penetrate that object they are not having a relationship, they are masturbating.

“When they are penetrating a woman and thinking she is an object, that is rape. We really need to address this confusion. The consequences for women are very dangerous.”

Running across the same story but this time from the National Catholic Register quotes from perhaps the most hated document of the twentieth-century Pope Paul VI’s Humanae Vitae:

Responsible men can become more deeply convinced of the truth of the doctrine laid down by the Church on this issue if they reflect on the consequences of methods and plans for artificial birth control. Let them first consider how easily this course of action could open wide the way for marital infidelity and a general lowering of moral standards. Not much experience is needed to be fully aware of human weakness and to understand that human beings—and especially the young, who are so exposed to temptation—need incentives to keep the moral law, and it is an evil thing to make it easy for them to break that law. Another effect that gives cause for alarm is that a man who grows accustomed to the use of contraceptive methods may forget the reverence due to a woman, and, disregarding her physical and emotional equilibrium, reduce her to being a mere instrument for the satisfaction of his own desires, no longer considering her as his partner whom he should surround with care and affection.

Note, this was addressing artificial birth control 50 years ago. Add in the turn that feminism resulted in basically women calling for the same deal, and Pope Paul was pretty dead on.

CEO of Abyss Creations (man, what an apt name!) says the following:

“There’s a knee-jerk reaction to either laugh at it or ridicule it or just go, ‘Oh that’s gross,’” says Matt McMullen, CEO of Abyss Creations in San Marcos, Calif., the company behind RealDoll. “It’s not about replacing people. It’s more about creating an alternative for those that desire it” – Sex Robots Are Coming, and They’re Not as Skeevy as You Think – Jun.02.2017 via NBC News

You mean the alternative of replacing people.

A Book Recommendation

In the wake of the disastrous (and eye opening) Charlottesville weekend, I was reminded of a book I had read about 23 years ago.

What reminded me of it was clear presentation of the two extreme sides of our political spectrum now. Both are antithetical to America and her values (or what were her values – hard to tell the death of a thing if it has no actual flesh).

The growing “alt-right” which consists of recently angry people reacting to the militarized Left, the old school racist skinheads and Nazis, and other pants-shitting, white robes wearing shitheads that have been showing off the effects of inbreeding for over a century. I am sure there is a subset in there as well that are simply lost and will run screaming when they see what corner they have got off on.

The militant “alt-left” of antifa and BLM. These are just the racists and communists that make up the left, anti-white, anti-America, etc. Right now, with the full support of the media and academia, the Democratic party, and even some knuckle-headed (see McCain and Romney) Republicans, the entertainment industry – they are in the ascendancy.

Except that they are feeding the alt-right.

I am not the first person to see eerie similarities to 20’s Germany here. The shitheads on the right and the shitheads on the left will squeeze out any centrists in the middle – and whoever can kill the other and rule will win.

And they both hate the Jews!

Your choice will be Fascism or Fascism – your country will already be dead.

Quick points, my IMHO, about last weekend.

– ACLU completely correct to argue for the right of the demonstrators.
– As soon as they showed up armed they should have been shut down and forcibly the night prior when they showed up.
– They have a right to peaceful process, but not to violence.
– Had they not been weaponized, we would have seen the New Left (which is really just the Old New Left from the 60’s but with full cultural support through 50’s years of further rot) for what it is as the beat upon a bunch of defenseless shitheads.

The book I recommend, with reservations, is Leonard Peikoff’s The Ominous Parallels.

Now I don’t subscribe to the philosophy of Objectivism anymore, so I do not recommend (unless you are simply curious) his recommendation chapter which is basically a selling pitch for Ayn Rand’s philosophy. Although even there there are points to be had since the philosophy does agree with America’s founding ideas in general. It diverges in some areas where Objectivism claims that ideas like Duty, Public Good and Sacrifice are bad ideas. When it agrees with the Founding Fathers, the chapter is good – when it starts to chastise, he’s selling soap.

What he does do is go into detail the culture and ideas that were dominating in Weimar Germany and that led to the Nazi state. The examination of the extreme Kantianism that took place in German ethics is fascinating. The descriptions of the concentration camps victims walking to the deaths to the soft sounds of operetta are completely disturbing.

Peikoff’s examination of the purpose of the concentration camps is probably the most disturbing chapter. People assume the camps were there merely for the purpose of killing. That is not the case.

That, however, is after a long analysis of how the Germans got there.

When I first read the book in 1992(?) I can’t say I saw a lot of similarity between Weimar Germany and the modern America of 1992. And a lot of the American examples from the book are from the riotous 60’s. Now the foundations were laid in the 60’s for our disaster (you don’t need to be a current or ex-Objectivist to see or agree with that) but they looked a little far removed in 1992.

Well, that was a generation ago. They seem like very Ominous Parallels now – and very close.

Why I Ran From the Atheist Crowd

Really I’m just using this as an excuse to put something out there. And what I am posting is a response to someone on Mr. John C. Wright’s site that answered me 11 days after my comment. I thought my response good enough that I would hate to see it lost in the sands of a retired blog post. Although I had to hold back because I don’t think my interlocutor is well versed in philosophy, history, theology, science, technology, logic or common sense.

First her first parlay was in response to this post

…and she writes:

Did you ever wonder why so many new, innovative, especially high-tech things that you find helpful in your life are created by teams of people who predominantly hold views opposite to yours, and find your views generally distasteful? Go to Google campus, or Amazon, or Intel, pretty much any high-tech producer – do you think you’ll find there mostly conservative crowd? Does it make you give up computers, cell phones, internet? Perhaps the whole “conservative” thing has its downsides?

To which I responded:

Hold it. Are you saying that if you hold, for instance that marriage is between one man and one woman, or that Christ died on the cross for man’s sins, that that man will be too what? Stupid, slow, uncreative, non-innovative to work in high tech, to acheive or excel in such a field? Are you attempting to establish some sort of causal link here or are you blowing gas? And what about that exceptions? Are they the ones that manage to hide their drooling in front of the high-tech lefty hero boss-boy? Or are they, somehow, perhaps miraculously, still able to perform despite their retarded ideas?

I had honestly thought after posting this that I had actually made of error in interpreting what her meaning was. Surely, Bob, you can’t think she would mean something like that? Perhaps she is merely asking why he doesn’t quit these other marvels of modern technology since such sectors are comprised of, she says, leftist and liberals.

I leave aside the fact that just because Jeff Bezos comes out for dumb idea #42 doesn’t mean the entirety of Google is behind dumb idea #42, nor necessarily the majority.

And everyone knows, should know, that businesses and corporations are hardly the test for any sort of stand on any social issue. They follow the breeze. If a majority decided to start putting minority X into ovens for extermination, you would suddenly see a bunch of brand new manufacturers of ovens. Introducing the Google 50,000 BTU Bone-Roaster!

They are no better than politicians – and no different in this regard.

Anyway, turns out I was wrong. My interpretation of her comment was right all along. You religious, you Continue reading
