It’s True


As my marriage was breaking up, my ex seemingly put herself under lots of pressure to justify herself.   I was loyal, dutiful and made good enough money (the prototypical beta of the manosphere), but she wanted out.  She had dreams to pursue.

Anyway, her friends and family thought it especially odd that she was destroying a seemingly fine thing.  In her own mind, I needed to be the villain.  Obviously there were many things going on in her head, but a peculiar manifestation was that would “misremember” an event.  As a precise INTJ, I take note of happenings assiduously, so I was always very clear about the histories of events, especially big ones.  It so happened that time after time, my recollection and her recollection disagreed.  naturally enough, her recollection was always one that made be look bad.

What really blew my mind, was that it sure did seem that she really believed what she was saying.  It was all true in her mind.  In the real world, things were different.  If  I pointed out real world facts, I was just more of a villain for arguing.  Then there was the giving up it’s pointless to discuss phase, which she would interpret as validation of her perspective.

In short, it would seem that people under pressure, with a world that does not conform to what they think it should be, can actually believe their “misrememberings”.  Furthermore, they can be very convincing to others.

Unfortunately, women seem to be especially prone to this.  Probably nothing can be done.

Addendum By Deti:

Her feelings are her objective reality. If something doesn’t line up with her feelings, or her feelings about things that happened, it cannot be true. Because feelings don’t lie. And if she feels it was true, it has to be true.

From the link above:

So back to the light-switch effect. When you’ve dated a woman for multiple years, and things start going sour, you experience the revisionist history where she claims to have “never loved you” or that you were “always abusive.” Yes, the always/never statements. And what they reflect isn’t a reality, rather, they reflect her new reality based on her emotions.

The thought process looks much like this: If true love is permanent and real, and I am not feeling true love for this person, but rather disdain and anger, then I must be feeling this way because of who they are. They make me feel bad, so they cannot be good. And since this person makes me feel bad I could not have loved them, because I would never love somebody who makes me feel bad (the qualities he exhibits now must have been inherent qualities he has always had). So I must have never loved them. The entire relationship must have been a lie. Real true love would be permanent, and this is not permanent, so it was never real true love.

And just like that, her emotional state defines a new reality, where nothing was ever good and everything was based on a lie. Like a light-switch goes from on to off, everything that you two had built disappears into the off position, as though it had never existed.

Women do this, blow up relationships and create “alternative facts” about what happened, because they don’t want to deal with objective reality when she’s in the process of blowing it up.

More importantly, she does not want to be judged for blowing it up. Because if the facts show she’s at fault or bears responsibility, then she’s subject to negative judgment. And that means she’s subject to rejection from other men and possibly from other women in the Female Social Matrix. Women can’t handle judgment. At all.

Judgment means rejection. Rejection means ostracism. Ostracism means isolation, and isolation means being removed from the Herd. And being removed from the Herd means being alone, with no access to resources, no validation, affirmation or protection, and no status within the Female Social Matrix. And this is absolute death to a woman. Social ostracism and being stripped of FSM status is death to a woman.

    Call them out immediately and clearly. You can’t allow the ‘misremembered’ version to gain traction. Whether it be your Ex, my Ex, or Dr Ford. Playing nice and being gentle with their feelings, only enables their lying behavior.

    Think of it this way.

    Someone pokes you on the street, bar, etc. Starts it.
    You have to defend yourself.

    At that point unless they die and it goes to manslaughter, its the same ticket.

    Correct. You might hit a weak organ and kill them.

    Few ever die from limb damage.

    The manhood. Repeated hard blows square. Again nowhere near lethal but a lifetime of regret.

    Point is, I didn’t start the fight but I will finish it.
    The punishment is coming, I can’t avoid it.
    So within that punishment I will take away the ability to make war on me and make it as enduring as possible.

    the last time my parents visited when my girls were growing up was when they were very little. my dad got angry and started hitting them … just hitting them. i was appalled and told him to stop. he said, “I didn’t hit them.” then my mother, who was right there, said, “Your father wasn’t hitting them.” i told them under no uncertain terms they would never touch my kids again. they left shortly after that and were not permitted to even see my kids for many years – and only then b/c they attended the graduation of my beloved niece, and only for a short time and not privately.

    after my first husband moved out, who also lied to me a lot, i told my girls from now on it would only be the truth in our home, and that’s how it’s been. i don’t always like the truth, but it’s much better than all the lies. they’ll even call me out on things sometimes, look at me with a grin, and say, “Well, it’s the truth, Mom!”

    Yep, but the collapse is a slow and piecemeal process. Women designed and built absolutely nothing for culture or society, they are merely parasites taking what men have originally provided. As a group, I lost all respect for the majority of females many years ago (in the pre-computer/internet age).

    Any man who invests in or trusts a female who will not submit to his authority is a pure fool; women have always been and will always be some man’s property to be managed, be that father or husband. Those females who will not submit to male dominance and control need to be left alone to eventually self destruct. Let them die.

    On the “light switch effect”, which technically could also be the “light switch affect” (joke), a slight variation.

    When I was trying to figure out how to date (post-divorce) and convert interest into something meaningful and longer lasting, I read a dating adviser maniacally. This was a good 5-10 years before I heard the term “redpill.” (I had never even seen The Matrix.)

    So this guy advanced the theory of “interest level”, and it seemed to match my experience pretty well. Basically, he noted female interest exists on a gradiant, and is highly variable, if not volatile. E.g., you met a unicorn? Her interest level is 100%. Pretty good times, 90%. Acceptable: 80%. You’re in trouble, 70%. I just found this very, very accurate and helped me decipher dating behavior. (He was also the guy who said to always plant a kiss on the lips on the first date; if she turned her head, she’s not interested in you romantically. That test has failed me exactly once. Now, of course, you’re courting some poundmetoo drama.)

    What he posited, that I have seen, is that there *is* a point of no return. She will go binary, and you’ll be a zero instead of a one. (Mixed metaphor, shoot me.) What is that digital moment you’re date interest level? 68%? Who knows. But men differ because in the aftermath of a breakup they may well remember the good times very happily — 70% — and forget the bad shit. Women are the opposite. The percentages and their influence are inverted. They get to the point of no return, they flip the switch, they turn the page, they stick a fork in the relationship, and the guy carries the emotional appeal of a parking lot attendant. Or, more accurately, a bank loan officer.

    I’ve thought about this a lot lately. It’s not just relationship difficulty that creates the light switch moment; she could flip out about something completely extraneous. My recent experience, mapped to the longterm, suggests that women cycle between the intimate and casual in almost a frictionless fashion. They’ll do things that make zero sense — in the context of their stated values and needs — that blow up a family or relationship. I question if a capacity for intimacy is even a capability, for many women. They’ll say they’re the emotionally intelligent, evolved sex. Really?

    Until 2nd wave feminism hit, of course, women evinced a higher loyalty and devotion than they do now. Relationships were founded and sustained by things other than intimacy. I wonder if the feral intersexual environment now is the result of women seeking self-fulfillment, apocalyptic sex, idolatrous rapture — i.e., transcendental intimacy — when it’s really not something they are wired to possess. After all, women choose providers and mates and defenders to sustain their children. What’s intimacy got to do with any of that? It’s irrelevant to the task of acquiring resources and security.

    Feelings Now Acceptable As Answers To Math Problems’ ..

    “Who are we to tell anyone that their own mathematical truth is wrong?”

    The answer to “who are we to tell” is twofold: (for the lurkers; not the commenters)

    – Without a commonly-accepted set of words and associated meanings, communiation is impossible. No way to build the tower of babel unless all words pertaining to that process of building are commonly understood. “I need a ton of bricks.” What’s a ton? What are bricks? If you are free to make up your own definitions, no one will ever know what you mean, exactly. Therefore, no one will ever choose to rely on you.

    – There is discovered truth (dinosaurs, your spouse’s infidelity), and there is created truth (we are going to call this thing an apple; one thing plus another thing gives you two things).

    The conclusions based on discovered truth are subject to change. As new truth is discovered, we change what we think and believe (the basis of the Socratic / Scientific method). With created truth (e.g., math), there is nothing else to discover and so that truth is always the same. It is that way because we said it is that way, and therefore we can understand math from anyone anywhere in the world. If, on your own, you insist that 1 plus 1 equals apple, no one will know what you are saying. Therefore, no one will be able to rely on you.

    …………

    Ok let me work on this some, no disrespect to FB because frankly I made the same mistakes…. near as I can tell. The #1 problem is loyal, dutiful, good enough money…. that shit is good enough for men. Women require more emotional bullshit. FB and me were both wrong in how we went about being husband’s. Fatally wrong. Women need tingles, highs and lows, laughs and tears and all sorts of random feelingz. I was one of the fittest men on earth, one of the best soldiers on earth etc etc with steady pay, lots of status, blah blah blah. Wasn’t good enough because I didn’t deliver a very complete service package

    The fucked up thing is it don’t take much of the emotional bullshit to keep them going either. The guy who works on the cranes in my plant is a soild blue collar beta….short, heavy set, no college, old truck, newer but still 14 year old Harely is dating a girl 10 years younger then him with money, status etc and beauty….. she is 40’ish and still turns heads near on every day. She left a man who was legit wealthy, had status etc etc super beta to be with him because he also delivers tingles, laughs, tells her no, makes her angry….. she is so into him she will break out in hives if she thinks about it for to long. Want to know the single act which elevated him so high in her eyes? Texting her photos of high school graffiti type shit he would draw on things about her.

    To Kill a Mockingbird stands firmly for the proposition that an accusation can be false, that unpopular defendants presumed guilty must and should be defended, and that it is admirable and brave to withstand the crowd — at times in the story, literally the lynch mob — when it wants to cast aside the normal protections of justice.

    Exactly what has made Atticus Finch such an honored figure in our culture would make him a very inconvenient man at many college campuses today, where charges of sexual misconduct are adjudicated without the accused being allowed to confront the accuser or make use of other key features of our system of justice. Finch is a rebuke to the shift from a presumption of innocence toward a presumption of guilt that now attends accusations of sexual harassment and assault. He didn’t believe that someone’s being accused of something is enough to establish his wrongdoing, or accept that a category of people were, by definition, to be under a pall of suspicion.

    Atticus Finch is not the man for this moment, but we need him, and his reasoned yet unshakable commitment to fairness and justice, more than ever.

    Sent to Senator Chris Coons

    Dear Sir,

    My name is Tad Low and I was an undergraduate at Yale during Brett Kavanaugh’s years in New Haven. During the 1987-88 school year, I was eyewitness to a shocking ceremony taking place inside DKE fraternity house that involved a semi-circle of cheering frat brothers watching a local prostitute perform a public sex act. I have three additional eyewitnesses, and two additional non-witnesses to whom I had related the event back in the late 80s. I can’t say for certain that Judge Kavanaugh was present in the frat house during the event, but he was still at Yale during the time period, attending Yale Law School, and I suspect he may have attended what would have been a bug part in the frat’s newly-purchased off-campus house. Since I know the name of one of the party’s attendees and since we know that Judge Kavanaugh saves meticulous personal calendars from his past, it shouldn’t be too difficult to ascertain whether he was present at this event.

    I contacted the New York office of the FBI Saturday, September 29th, midday. After waiting on hold for 15 minutes, I onboarded my name, my recollection, the identity of the one frat brother seen at the event, my investigative advice and my witnesses’ names and phone numbers to what seemed like a low-level input agent. I also contacted the New Haven branch office of the FBI yesterday, Sunday, September 30th. I haven’t heard anything yet from either office.

    Please let me know if you, your office or your Committee would be interested in hearing more.

    Best regards,

    Tad Low

    When people send ricin to military and Republican facilitier, one can reasonably assume that a substantial percentage of the party out of power is no longer doing politics. Of course, Kavanaugh illustrates this point as well, but few will say so publicly.

    Because I had lost Julie’s number I called her father to get it. When I talked to him about possibly bringing her on to help with my campaign, he told me she had psychological and other problems at the time. When I asked he would not go into detail and said that I wouldn’t want her to work on my campaign. His response was rather abrupt. He hung up on me.

    With that in mind, here are a few other crimes Kavanaugh obviously committed, until he can prove to our satisfaction that he didn’t:

    Was Not Kind, Did Not Rewind. If Kavanaugh went to college in the 1980s, that means he had a Blockbuster card. Which means that somewhere, in some box in a warehouse or someplace, there’s a record of all his video rentals. How much do you want to bet that there’s a piece of paper with solid proof that he didn’t rewind a VHS cassette before bringing it back to the drop-off slot? It was probably Gremlins, if that helps speed up the search. He just looks like the kind of guy who really likes Gremlins.

    Cut Off Mattress Tag. I have no idea why it’s illegal to cut the tag off your Sealy Posturepedic, but the law is the law. Has Kavanaugh ever owned a mattress? Has he ever owned a pair of scissors? Then that’s all the evidence we need to justify an FBI investigation. Hop to it, G-Men!

    Probably Broke Somebody’s Crayons or Something? A lot has been said about Kavanaugh’s young adulthood, but maybe we’re not digging into his past deeply enough. How about kindergarten and grade school? At least one of his old teachers must still be alive. Odds are they could tell us about his misbehavior as a kid, like putting chewing gum under his desk or making fart sounds with his armpits or… I don’t know. There’s gotta be something. Anything! We need to stop this guy!

    Today may be a day to savor. Senator Chuck Grassley and sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell took heavy criticism in some quarters over the solicitous tone and leisurely pace of the cross-examination of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford before the Senate Judiciary Committee, but it looks as though a perjury trap was being sprung. Ryan Saavedra of The Daily Wire explains:

    A new letter, released by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), states that a former boyfriend of Christine Blasey Ford says that he personally witnessed her coaching someone on how to take a polygraph test, despite the fact that she testified under oath that she had never done so.

    “The full details of Dr. Ford’s polygraph are particularly important because the Senate Judiciary Committee has received a sworn statement from a longtime boyfriend of Dr. Ford’s, stating that he personally witnessed Dr. Ford coaching a friend on polygraph examinations,” Grassley wrote.

    “During some of the time we were dating, Dr. Ford lived with Monica L. McLean, who I understood to be her life-long best friend,” Ford’s ex-boyfriend wrote in the letter. “During that time, it was my understanding that McLean was interviewing for jobs with the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s Office.”

    “I witnessed Dr. Ford help McLean prepare for a potential polygraph exam,” the ex-boyfriend said. “Dr. Ford explained in detail what to expect, how polygraphs worked, and helped McLean become familiar and less nervous about the exam.”

    “When asked under oath in the hearing whether she’d ever given any tips or advice to someone who was planning on taking a polygraph, Dr. Ford replied, ‘Never,'” Grassley continued. “This statement raises specific concerns about the reliability of her polygraph examination results.”

    For reasons known to himself but not me, Mitch McConnell agrees:

    McConnell confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that the report will only be seen by senators and will not be made publicly available.

    Is Mitch planning to use it for leverage, threatening to expose bad behavior by Judiciary Committee Dems? Or the witness Blasey Ford? Or her well connected lawyers?

    Three Republican senators seen as swing votes in the confirmation battle over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh condemned President Trump on Wednesday for mocking Kavanaugh accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford at a campaign rally in Mississippi the night before.

    “There’s no time and no place for remarks like that,” Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said in an interview with NBC’s “Today” show. “To discuss something this sensitive at a political rally is just not right. It’s just not right. I wish he hadn’t done it. I just say it’s kind of appalling.”

    Suzanne Collins, R-Maine, echoed Flake’s disdain upon arriving on Capitol Hill on Wednesday morning.

    “The president’s comments were just plain wrong,” Collins told reporters. She did not answer when asked whether Trump’s remarks would affect her vote on confirming Kavanaugh for the high court.

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, who will cast another key vote, said the president’s comments “mocking Dr. Ford were wholly inappropriate and, in my view, unacceptable.”

    A group of scholars has been getting bogus studies published in peer-reviewed journals to make the point that many in academia no longer value reason when it comes to gender issues.

    Helen Pluckrose, a researcher and author; James Lindsay, who has a doctorate in math and is also an author, and philosophy professor Peter Boghossian noticed that “Something has gone wrong in the university – especially in certain fields within the humanities.” The trio set out to prove just how easy it would be to publish various studies of a dubious nature in respected journals.

    For one year, the three submitted academic papers to journals covering “cultural studies,” “identity studies” – such as gender studies – and “critical theory.” They submitted 20 papers to relevant journals. So far, seven have been accepted (four of which have already been published online), seven more are under review, and six were rejected. The scholars also say they received four offers to peer-review other papers because of their own studies.

    The papers that were published are absurd, the most infamous of which was about how dog parks promote “rape culture” in Portland, Oregon. This paper was so outlandish it caught the attention of Tori Airaksinen, who found the “author” of the piece had lied about her credentials. Airaksinen and others’ questioning of the study caused Pluckrose, Lindsay, and Boghossian “to conclude the project early.”

    Although I generally dislike politicians of any flavor, my last few years working in DC, and having to interact with quite a few political appointees, made me especially distrust Ds. They have no problem putting their agenda before the good of the country; will lie right to your face. And when you call them out with documented facts, they get indignant and act like nothing is going to happen to them. And they are correct, because the O Admin allowed them to get away with it without any repercussions at all.

    Seeing these people not get held accountable for their lies, is a big part of why I decided to retire before I was mandatory. I would have liked the extra $ the additional 5 years would have given me, but the stress of having to deal with those types of people, was just too much for me.

    If men are obsolete, then women will soon be extinct….

    A peevish, grudging rancor against men has been one of the most unpalatable and unjust features of second- and third-wave feminism. Men’s faults, failings and foibles have been seized on and magnified into gruesome bills of indictment. Ideologue professors at our leading universities indoctrinate impressionable undergraduates with carelessly fact-free theories alleging that gender is an arbitrary, oppressive fiction with no basis in biology.

    It was always the proper mission of feminism to attack and reconstruct the ossified social practices that had led to wide-ranging discrimination against women. But surely it was and is possible for a progressive reform movement to achieve that without stereotyping, belittling or demonizing men.

    History must be seen clearly and fairly: obstructive traditions arose not from men’s hatred or enslavement of women but from the natural division of labor that had developed over thousands of years during the agrarian period and that once immensely benefited and protected women, permitting them to remain at the hearth to care for helpless infants and children. Over the past century, it was labor-saving appliances invented by men and spread by capitalism, that liberated women from daily drudgery.

    Indeed, men are absolutely indispensable right now, invisible as it is to most feminists, who seem blind to the infrastructure that makes their own work lives possible. It is overwhelmingly men who do the dirty, dangerous work of building roads, pouring concrete, laying bricks, tarring roofs, hanging electric wires, excavating natural gas and sewage lines, cutting and clearing trees, and bulldozing the landscape for housing developments. It is men who heft and weld the giant steel beams that frame our office buildings, and it is men who do the hair-raising work of insetting and sealing the finely tempered plate-glass windows of skyscrapers 50 stories tall…

    The modern economy, with its vast production and distribution network, is a male epic.

    Ton’s comment triggered the following thoughts in me. All questions are meant to be rhetorical. I’m not trying to start a debate about the 2a.

    The 2a says this” A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State …

    Ton, the terms “well regulated” and “State” suggest something other than free and sovereign. You as a gun owner are to be well-regulated (by whom?) in support of a free State, not in support of your free state.

    It is clear by the language used that the authors had in view here a free State (first), brought about through a well-regulated Militia (second). The use of title caps for Militia and State make them proper nouns and show that a (local) government purpose for the right to bear arms was also in view.

    The 2a wasn’t arguing for the right of anyone to carry surface to air missles and shoot at whatever catches their fancy.

    I assume you (ton) interpret things differently.

    I’ve seen much debate about the meaning of “bear arms”, etc. But I don’t think I’ve ever seen a debate over what that phrase “well regulated” means. To regulate means to restrict in some way (regulated throttle). So – restrict in what way, and who does the restricting? I think it is safe to say that the writers were not suggesting that individuals regulate and restrict themselves. So – well regulated by whom?

    I would take issue with some of Richard’s statemnts about the second amendment.

    The Second Amendment’s text as in the original, with capitalizations, is:

    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

    1) The capitalization of Militia and State is not significant beyond the fact that important words in a document were routinely capitalized, probably as an affectation in written English of the day and probably to call the reader’s attention to important words the author wanted emphasized.

    The Preamble to the Constitution reads:

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

    note the capitalization of words the writer deemed important: People. Order. Union. Justice. Tranquility. Welfare. Blessings, Liberty. Posterity. the purpose of capitalization is to get the reader to notice those words and give them the emphasis required.

    (As an aside, I think the Preamble is one of the most beautiful pieces of prose I’ve ever read. Agree or not with the sentiments, it’s exceedingly well written, concise, clear, and flows just magnificently.)

    2) The history of the amendment is that it, along with the others in the Bill of Rights, are intended to safeguard rights to individuals. Those rights are considered to be natural rights, descended from Natural Law, from God. They are rights that exist independent of a government. They are not rights granted by government. Nor do they impose duties upon individuals. They are intended to state “these are rights that individuals have as part of nature and from God, and government cannot touch them, restrict them, limit them, or take them away.”

    The Framers (and the people) deemed the Bill of Rights (including the Second) so important that the people and the states said they would not ratify this constitution unless the Bill of Rights were made part of the Constitution and ratified with it together. Essentially, it was

    “we’re not going to pass this or live under it unless it states, CLEARLY, that government recognizes these individual natural rights exist, and that government cannot touch them. Either put those amendments in there in clear language, or this constitution goes in the shithole.”

    3) The intent was for individuals to bear arms and keep weapons

    –for self defense and protection.

    –as hunting tools.

    –to serve as a check on federal military power. If tyranny ever raised its head again, individuals in state militias were expected to remove that threat, if need be. (This is the most controversial, really.)

    Richard, the only SCOTUS case that supports your arguments is US v. Miller, 1939, which held that the 2d amendment does not extend to every single kind of armament or weapon known to man. But it protects ONLY those weapons bearing a reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well-regulated Militia.

    US v. Cruikshank, 1876: SCOTUS held the 2d amendment does nothing other than guarantee the right to keep and bear arms. It does not “grant a right” to bear arms. This is important, because if the court had held it grants affirmative rights, the court could ALSO hold that government can take away that right, and as we have seen from 2) up there, the right to bear arms is considered a natural right. Why? Self defense and defense of others. It is natural for humans to live, to stay alive, to fight to stay alive, and to neutralize and/or put down threats to an individual human’s existence. He has a natural right to defend himself. “Right to Life”.

    DC v. Heller, 2008: SCOTUS holds the state may not infringe on an individuals right to keep a gun in his home. Yes, you might have to register with a firearm owner ID card. You might even have to register it. The state can know you own it. The state can keep you from doing target practice in your backyard, 20 feet away from someone else’s house. But the state cannot take that gun away from you if you keep it in your home for self defense.

    Caetano v. Massachusetts (2016) SCOTUS reiterated its earlier rulings that “the Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding” and that its protection is not limited to “only those weapons useful in warfare.” That means if an individual (whether militia or military or not) can carry and use it, it’s protected under the second amendment.

    4) “Well regulated Militia” what does that mean? Original intent was that every able bodied man was de facto a member of his state’s militia, and could be called into service to defend the state or country (“necessary to the security of a free State”). It isn’t just military though. It’s anything. You have to defend yourself against foreign invasions. Or criminals. Or thieves. Or vandals. Or terrorists waging guerrilla war.

    Or maybe even against your own tyrannical government.

    To me, it’s clear that “well regulated” means you, as an individual, have your weapons, they’re ready to use, you are prepared and trained on their use, and you are subject to a command when your militia duties are called on.

    Even setting that aside, SCOTUS has held the second amendment protects the individual’s right to own a gun and keep it at his home. However, he’s responsible for its use. That’s “regulated”. He’s subject to criminal liability for using it wrong or in commission of crimes. He’s subject to civil liability for injuries or deaths he causes wrongfully or without justification. He’s subject to regulation on where he can use it or carry it outside his home.

    I hope that helps. I’m not a second amendment expert, this is Wikipedia and Google searching. Cheers.

    Thanks for the reply deti – but I wasn’t looking for help. I was focusing only on the meaning of the author(s), as made evident by the structure of the sentences in the phrase. As I said above, I’m not interested in a debate here about the 2a. I would be surprised if any here thought that the 2a guarantees our right to carry surface-to-air-missles and our right to shoot them at any target we choose. Folks don’t really think the 2a is open-ended; they just disagree over where the line is drawn. And I’m not debating any of that.

    It is clear that the focus of the 2a, based on the structure of it’s sentences, is on the security of a free State. That security is maintained by a well regulated militia. And that militia is useless without weapons. The 2a says the right of an individual to bear arms shall not be abridged – because of the needs of the milia. It very clearly says nothing about the right of an individual to bear arms shall not be abridged – because of the needs of the weapon-holder at home.

    None of the words offered by anyone else, including the Supreme Court, can change the minds of several 90-year-old English teachers I have known. In any carefully-considered writing, the structure of the sentence makes clear the intent of its author. You won’t pass English 101 without being able to demonstrate by your writing that you know that. Flipping the 2a front to back makes the intent of the authors more clear:

    The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed [because] A well regulated Militia,[is] necessary to the security of a free State,

    And as an aside – I’ve never known any militia to be “well regulated” when no one is in charge and each individual in the militia is free to decide what he and only he will do. I’ve never known any group of people with a task to perform to be considered “well regulated” when there is no one in charge of the group to give directions and to focus their efforts. After all, the purpose of a militia is something more than just “everyone shooting at whatever they fancy”. The efforts of a militia must directed if they are to be successful – and they must be directed by someone in authority over them. Once that reality is understood and acknowledged, we realize that the “freedom” of which Ton spoke above regarding weapons is a constrained freedom. For starters, the members of the militia would not be “free” to get ammunition for their weapon(s). They would be required to get ammunition (by whom?). And the members of the militia would be told by someone in authority over them (who?) who, what, and where the enemy was that they should shoot at.

    The 2a is talking about folks being free to bear arms in the contect of a milita. The words and sentence structure used make it clear the 2a was not discussing the case of a weapon-holder at home. The 2a is silent on that issue, even if others are not.

    Again – court decisions may say that 2a means something other than what I’ve discussed above. But the 90-year-old English teachers will not agree with that – based upon the construction of the wording in the 2a. Based upon what the 2a actually says.

    The militia at the time was regarded as all free White men with a guy. You forget most of the founding fathers abhorred a standing army and thought they were dangerous things, like goverment, a necessary evil but never to be trusted

    So well regulated by me via the guiding hand of the Almighty

    I also think constitutional agreements these days are fucking dumb

    Yankees shit all over it in 1860 and it has not been the law of the land for generations now
