A Look at the Tlingit Language

Method and Conclusion. See here.

Results. A ratings system was designed in terms of how difficult it would be for an English-language speaker to learn the language. In the case of English, English was judged according to how hard it would be for a non-English speaker to learn the language. Speaking, reading and writing were all considered.

Ratings: Languages are rated 1-6, easiest to hardest. 1 = easiest, 2 = moderately easy to average, 3 = average to moderately difficult, 4 = very difficult, 5 = extremely difficult, 6 = most difficult of all. Ratings are impressionistic.

Time needed. Time needed for an English language speaker to learn the language “reasonably well”: Level 1 languages = 3 months-1 year. Level 2 languages = 6 months-1 year. Level 3 languages = 1-2 years. Level 4 languages = 2 years. Level 5 languages = 3-4 years, but some may take longer. Level 6 languages = more than 4 years.

Tlingit

Tlingit is probably one of the hardest, if not the hardest, languages in the world. Tlingit is analyzed as partly synthetic, partly agglutinative, and sometimes polysynthetic. It has not only suffixes and prefixes, but it also has infixes, or affixes in the middle of words.

All examples below will be based on this verb base:

‘eechto pick

All prefixes must be in proper order for the word to work.

tuyakaoonagadagaxayaeecheen.
I am usually picking, on purpose, a long object through the hole while standing on a table.

tuyakaoonagootxayaeecheen.
I am usually being forced to pick a long object through the hole while standing on a table.

tuyaoonagootxawa’eecheen.
I am usually picking the edible long object through the hole while standing on a table.

Tlingit has an unusual phonology. For one thing, it is the only language on Earth with no l. This is despite the fact that it has five other laterals: dl (), tl (tɬʰ), tl’ (tɬʼ), l (ɬ) and l’ (ɬʼ). Try distinguishing between five different types of l’s sometime. The tɬʼ and ɬʼ sounds are rare in the world’s languages. ɬʼ  is only found in the berserk NW Caucasian languages. It also has two labialized glottal consonants, ʔʷ and hw (). Try to pronounce those in your spare time.

Tlingit gets a 6 rating, hardest of all.

Yuchi

Yuchi is a language isolate spoken in the Southern US. They were originally located in Eastern Tennessee and were part of the Creek Confederacy at one time. Yuchi is nearly extinct, with only five remaining speakers.

Yuchi has noun genders or classes based on three distinctions of position: standing, sitting or lying. All nouns are either standing, sitting or lying. Trees are standing, and rivers are lying, for instance. If it is taller than it is wide, it is standing. If it is wider than it is tall, it is lying. If it is about as about as wide as it is tall, it is sitting. All nouns fall into one of these three genders, but you can change the gender for humorous or poetic effect. A linguist once asked a group of female speakers whether a penis was standing, sitting or lying. After lots of giggles, they said the default was sitting, but you could say it was standing or lying for poetic effect.

All Yuchi pronouns must make a distinction between age (older or younger than the speaker) and ethnicity (Yuchi or non-Yuchi).

Yuchi gets a 6 rating, hardest of all.

A Look at American Indian Languages and the Kootenai Language

American Indian Languages

American Indian languages are notoriously difficult to learn, though few try to learn them in the US. In the rest of the continent, they are still learned by millions in many different nations. You almost need to learn these as a kid. It’s going to be quite hard for an adult to get full competence in them.

One problem with these languages is the multiplicity of verb forms. For instance, the standard paradigm for the overwhelming number of regular English verbs is a maximum of five forms:

steal
steals
stealing
stole
stolen

Many Amerindian languages have over 1,000 forms of each verb in the language.

Kootenai

The Salishan languages are maddeningly difficult languages for English speakers to learn. Yet the Salishans always considered the neighboring language Kootenai to be too hard to learn.

Kootenai has a distinction between proximate/obviate along with direct/inverse alignment, probably from contact with Algonquian. However, the Kootenai direct/inverse system is less complex than Algonquian’s, as it is present only in the 3rd person. Kootenai also has a very strange feature in that they have particles that look like subject pronouns, but these go outside of the full noun phrase. This is a very rare feature in the world’s languages. Kootenai scored very high on a weirdest language survey.

Kootenai is an isolate spoken in Idaho by 100 people.

Kootenai is rated 6, hardest of all.

A Look at the Burushaski Language

Burushaski is formally a language isolate spoken in the far northwest of Pakistan near the border with China in the Hunza Valley. It is still alive and may have 30,000 speakers.

Burushaski people are interesting in that they live a very long time. The Hunza has one of the largest populations of centenarians on Earth. No one knows why they live so long except that they live in mountainous terrain and walk up and down steep hills for most of their lives as another long-lived people, the Sardinians, also do. Their diet has also been studied, and it turns out that two staples are apricots and yogurt, for whatever that is worth. They live at a very high altitude also. Whether that factors into longevity is not known.

Burushaski

Burushaski is often thought to be a language isolate, related to no other languages, however, I think it is Dene-Caucasian. It is spoken in the Himalaya Mountains of far northern Pakistan in an area called the Hunza. It’s verb conjugation is complex, it has a lot of inflections, there are complicated ways of making sentences depending on many factors, and it is an ergative language, which is hard to learn for speakers of non-ergative languages. In addition, there are very few to no cognates for the vocabulary.

Burushaski is rated 6, hardest of all.

A Look at the Northwest Caucasian Languages

The Northwest Caucasian languages are extremely odd. There are not many of them, and we already went over one of the strangest one of them all, Ubykh. Now we will look at them in general and also look at Abaza and Abkhaz.

Method and Conclusion. See here.

Results. A ratings system was designed in terms of how difficult it would be for an English-language speaker to learn the language. In the case of English, English was judged according to how hard it would be for a non-English speaker to learn the language. Speaking, reading and writing were all considered.

Ratings: Languages are rated 1-6, easiest to hardest. 1 = easiest, 2 = moderately easy to average, 3 = average to moderately difficult, 4 = very difficult, 5 = extremely difficult, 6 = most difficult of all. Ratings are impressionistic.

Level 3 languages = 1-2 years. Level 4 languages = 2 years. Level 5 languages = 3-4 years, but some may take longer. Level 6 languages = more than 4 years.

Northwest Caucasian

All NW Caucasian languages are characterized by a very small number of vowels (usually only two or three) combined with a vast consonant inventory, the largest consonant inventories on Earth. Almost any consonant can be plain, labialized or palatalized. This is apparently the result of an historical process whereby many vowels were lost and their various features became assigned to consonants. For instance, palatalized consonants may have come from Ci sequences and labialized consonants may have come from Cu sequences.

The grammars of these languages are complex. Unlike the NE Caucasian languages, they have simple noun systems, usually with only a handful of cases.

However, they have some of the complex verbal systems on Earth. These are some of the most synthetic languages in the Old World. Often the entire syntax of the sentence is contained within the verb. All verbs are marked with ergative, absolutive and direct object morphemes in addition to various applicative affixes. These are akin to what some might call “verbal case.” For instance, in applicative voice systems, applicatives may take forms such as comitative, locative, instrumental, benefactive and malefactive. These roles are similar to the case system in nouns – even the names are the same. So you can see why some call this “verbal case.”

NW Caucasian verbs can be marked for aspect (whether something is momentous, continuous or habitual), mood (if something is certain, likely, desired, potential, or unreal). Other affixes can shape the verb in an adverbial sense, to express pity, excess or emphasis.

Like NE Caucasian, they are also ergative.

NW Caucasian makes it onto a lot of craziest language lists.

These are some of the strangest sounding languages on Earth. Of all of these languages, Abaza has the most consonants. Here is a video in the Abaza language.

Abkhaz-Abazin

Abkhaz is an extremely difficult language to learn. Each basic consonant has eight different positions of articulation in the mouth. Imagine how difficult that would be for an Abkhaz child with a speech impediment. Abkhaz seems to put agreement markers on just about everything in the language. Abkhaz makes it onto many craziest language lists, and it recently got a very high score on a weirdest language study.

Abkhaz is rated 6, hardest of all.

It’s All About Israel

Found on the Net:

Israel is the largest recipient of U.S. foreign military financing.

Wow. Sit back and let that sink in for a while. Israel gets more US military aid (and quite a bit of outrageous economic aid too) than any other country on Earth. When it comes to US military aid, the top priority of the US is Israel. Is this the way the American people want it? All of our weaponry going to some shitty little country that’s among the most hated nations on Earth? Do Americans know this fact? Do they approve? Do they disapprove? Do they even care?

I’ve known this fact for decades, but the sheer thump of the brutal reality of it just sank in now.

From US Defense Secretary Carter’s recent visit to Israel:

US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said Tuesday that Washington is interested in tightening its defense ties with Israel in light of the security challenges in the Middle East, adding that “the defense relationship with Israel is stronger than ever.” During an appearance with Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon in Washington, he also said “Israel is a cornerstone of our strategy in the Middle East, and its security is a top priority for America, for our military, and President Obama and me personally.”

Wow, let’s look at that quote again.

“Israel is a cornerstone of our strategy in the Middle East, and its security is a top priority for America…”

Wow, “Israel is the cornerstone of US strategy in the Middle East.”

In other words, no matter what we are doing over there, Israel is involved in some way or other. If we are fighting a war, bombing someone, slamming sanctions on some nation of militia, funding a war or supporting a dictator, as a general rule, one of the reasons we are doing that is to help Israel.

In other words, to radically simplify a bit, US foreign policy in the Middle East is pretty much all about Israel.

I have always suspected this. Most of our sworn enemies over there have no beef against us at all. The enemies we have over there are Israel’s enemies. The enemies of Israel are the enemies of America. Syria, Iran, Hezbollah, the Houthis, even Ghaddafi and Saddam Hussein, really posed no threat whatsoever to the US. None of them were or are threatening the US in any way, shape or form. They are or were not bad for America. Who are they bad for? Well, most of them are or were bad for the Jews. They’re bad for Israel.

So really the only reason we have all these enemies over there is because we have decided that the enemies of Israel are the enemies of America. I wonder how many people know that?

So no matter what we are doing over there, in some way, it’s all about Israel. There you have it. The Defense Secretary himself even said so.

Thing is, guys like me say that and we get called every name in the book – antisemite, Nazi, racist, hater, bigot, bla bla. If I say it, I’m a racist, fascist, Nazi nut, but if the Defense Secretary of the US says it, it’s golden gospel.

“Israel’s security is a top priority for America, for our military, and President Obama and me personally.”

He appears to be saying that of all the countries on Earth, Israel’s security is more important than that of any other country! Breathtaking! Israel’s number 1! Forget about all those countries. When it comes to foreign policy, they all take a back seat to Israel.

Once again, it’s all about Israel.

US military aid: it’s all about Israel
US Middle East policy: it’s all about Israel.
US foreign policy in general: it’s all about Israel.

Straight from the horse’s mouth.

I can’t believe he came right out and said that, but I suppose it’s been an open secret for a long time now, right?

More Lies about the First Russian Casualty in Syria

Here.

Boy, the lies never stop, now do they?

Here is what happened. Russia announced that it had sustained its first casualty in the war in Syria. With that, the entire Western media flipped out and went in to disinformation propaganda mode. The vile “liberals” in Russia also went into full spin lying mode. The “liberals are really pro-Western free marketeers who are despised by 90% of Russians, who refer to them as “the traitors”. The truth is that Russia has a large opposition media, and you can these 10-15% opposition liberals saying the most outrageous things every single day in various Russian media sources.

A few of them get arrested, but most don’t. Maybe 3% get arrested, and most of those are crooks anyway.

There are many newspapers in Russia that are actually published by anti-Russian  Westerners in Europe. All of these are virulently anti-Putin. You can buy these papers every day in any large Russian city like Moscow. In addition, there are a huge number of anti-Putin websites, often very well funded by Russian “dissidents” who are mostly convicted Mafioso, many of whom are Russian Jews like Khodorovsky. None of these  websites are blocked at all. I believe there are also opposition radio and TV networks.

Anyway if they have even one opposition media outlet, Russia has a freer press than the West, which has no media outlets that oppose the Deep States of the West and in particular the multi-nation Deep State called NATO. Every single day, CIA-run outlets like the website of Paul Goble (“former” CIA analyst for decades) quote all sorts of Russian opposition members saying the wildest things in some Russian media outlet.

When do you ever hear anyone in the Western press quoting even one person who opposes the line of the Deep State? When does the “opposition” in the West ever quoted as saying anything in the Western press? They aren’t. They are simply blacked out.

There was some initial confusion abut the cause of death. At first it was reported as an accident, then it was reported as a suicide. The report was that he committed suicide over the breakup with a girlfriend. The family and the girlfriend immediately insisted that he could not have committed suicide because he was not in that sort of a mental state.

The problem is that he died at Russia’s Tartous Base on the coast of Syria. There are no rebels of any kind for many miles. The soldier was an airplane mechanic. He was not on the front lines. So it could not have been a combat death. That leaves either an accident, a suicide or something nefarious like a homicide by a fellow soldier.

The body was returned to the family. A number of people, including family members, saw the body. The soldier had only one wound and that was around his neck, a dark purple mark around the throat. The people who reported seeing this neck wound included family members.

Now the father is saying that the wounds of his son are not consistent with suicide. But that’s not what he and other family members said at first. A dead body with the only wound being a dark purple mark around the neck? Sounds like a suicide or maybe someone was garroted. Anyway, it’s death by strangulation.

I can’t believe the whole Western media is running with this stupid bullshit.

He didn’t die in combat. In fact, he could not have because he was miles away from the front lines.

His death was reported as a suicide.

Family members who saw the body reported that it had a dark purple band around the neck, which is 100% consistent with suicide.

What more do we need to know?

Now the father has changed his mind and says “the wounds were not consistent with suicide.” But that’s not what he said at first.

I can’t believe the Western media is running with this crap story. This is a propaganda blitz. Furthermore, all of the Western outlets are 100% in line with the propaganda party line of the day. This is the worst propaganda I have seen in the US and the West in general in my entire life, and I was born in 1957. Absolutely disgusting. Free press my ass.

Four Stages of Love and Personal Development

You will often see in mythology various things centered around the number four – four of this, four of that, four times four, etc.

Carl Jung states that the nucleus of the Psyche or Self works as a fourfold structure. We will looks at this structure first as it relates to personal development and then as it relates to love.

Four Levels of the Psyche

Psyche Level 1: Purely instinctive and biological relations – man as an animal, the Id.

Psyche Level 2: Romantic or aesthetic pleasure, the appreciation of beauty and the higher senses.

Psyche Level 3: The spiritual level, man as a spiritual animal, the appreciation of the ineffable or indeterminate.

Psyche Level 4: A super-wisdom transcending even the most holy and pure. This is something like the state of satori that the Zen monks talk about. It can also be seen in higher states of consciousness by Indian yogis accessed via yoga and whatnot. This may refer to what Nietzsche was talking about when he discussed the Ubermensch, the man who has transcended all base and earthly passions and has risen above it all.

I am thinking that most people in the West never reach Psyche Level 4 in their lives.

Now we will look at the same structure as it refers to love:

Four Levels of Love

Love Level 1: Sexual love. Pure sex and animalism, sex without love, a biological and primitive yet enjoyable act.

Love Level 2: Romantic love. A step above pure sexual love in that it rises above to the level of romance and passion to where one actually feels an almost religious-like devotion to the other person. However, this is still considered to be “tainted” somewhat by base and primitive passion, as there is usually still quite a bit of animalistic sexual passion here.

Love Level 3: Spiritual love. Here we see love at one of its highest levels – the love of God or the spiritual realm. This rises above even romantic love; it is more all-encompassing, and it is not even grounded on the Earth or in one other person as romantic love is. It can extend to the love of many or all and to love beyond the simple Earthly plane.

Love Level 4: Love raised to its highest level, even beyond spiritual love. Here we are dealing with a type of “Love” or “Passion” that may better be termed something like “Wisdom” that transcends even the most holy and pure spiritual love. In this sense, “wisdom” is the ultimate form of love or passion.

As with Psyche Level 4, I believe that most people in the West never reach Love Level 4 in their lives.

On Alain Soral

Here.

You can read his Wikipedia entry and see what he is up to. I just did, and although I don’t agree with him on everything, I would rather have guys like this running the media than our present elites which push a combination of Cultural Left + radical, pro-rich, pro-corporate, anti-people neoliberal capitalism.

That’s pretty much the worst of the Left combined with the worst of the Right. The worst of both worlds.

And the people who push this represent the elites of the entire West. Pushing back against this are people like Soral (who is still quite a Leftist despite whatever lies you hear about him), Putin and Alexander Dugin’s Eurasianism. According to the Left, all of these people are part of something called the Red-Brown Movement which is some weird mixture of Far Right and Far Left, or Socialism/Communism + Fascism, the former being the red and the latter being the brown.

It’s mostly Trotskyite idiots (the poison of the Western Left) like this guy who push the line that Putin, Dugin and Soral are fascists. I do not see a lot of evidence for it, or if they are, then I suppose I must be a fascist myself! Soral still talks like the Marxist he has always been. He was even a Marxist when he “turned far right” and joined the National Front. Reading  through his Wikipedia entry, he still seems awfully Leftist, or if he’s a Rightist, than that is the sort of Right that I could easily support.

He talks and complains about Jews too much, which I think is unnecessary, but he makes some valid points:

In France, all forms of growing communitarianism (gay, Islamic, etc.) form and strengthen through imitation of, hostility towards and opposition to Judeo-Zionist communitarianism, whose privileged status constitutes the communitarian jurisprudence by which their claims against the Republic are supported.

Here communitarianism apparently means Identity Politics as best I can tell. He says that Identity Politics blows (and it does), but all of the IP crowd really got their IP from the biggest IP’ers of them all…ta dum..the Jews!

Well, maybe. At any rate, it’s an interesting comparison. Have you ever noticed that the Jews are the only people on Earth who get to be nationalists, nay, even worse, ethnic nationalists? So the Jews get their National Socialist state over in Palestine, an ethnic nationalist state if there ever was one, but nobody else gets to have one, and if anyone tries, they are fascists and Nazis!

Well that means ethnic nationalism is fascism and Nazism, right? Ok, I will not object. But let’s follow this through here. That also means that the Jews’ sleazy ethnic nationalist project in Palestine is also…wa-la! Fascist and National Socialist, right?

Nope. Everyone else’s ethnic nationalism is fascist and Nazi, except for that of the Jews, because their ethnic nationalism somehow isn’t fascist and National Socialist like the rest! Or whatever. One reason people tire of Jews is because they are always being hypocritical and pushing blatantly unfair and contradictory lines like the above about just about everything, which is what we should expect from an ultranationalist tribe like the Jews because that’s how ultranationalists everywhere act.

As part of the debate on laïcité in French schools, Soral claimed to prefer the Muslim veil to thong underwear.

I don’t agree, but that’s pretty funny anyway.

Alain Soral has denounced communitarianism as a “poison.”

Assuming that communitarianism means IP, he is indeed correct.

To him, feminism was invented by women tiring of their role as mothers. Soral distinguishes two types of feminism: that of the “flippées” (“freaked-outs”) such as Simone de Beauvoir, and that of the “pétasses” (“bitches”) like Élisabeth Badinter. Soral claims that the most problematic inequality is not between men and women, but between rich and poor, and that feminists, who generally come from the upper classes of society, attempt to distract attention from this struggle.

Well no kidding. The Female IP project known as feminism blows, just like all IP. And he divides feminists up into the lunatics and the bitches, although I would argue that most of them are a combination of the two.

When you’re talking with a Frenchman who is a Zionist Jew, and you start to say, well maybe there are problems coming from your side, maybe you might have made a few mistakes, it’s not always the fault of other people if no-one can stand you wherever you go… because that’s basically their general history, you see… for 2,500 years, every time they settled somewhere, after about fifty years or so, they get their arses kicked. Surely something strange here ! It’s as though everyone is wrong except them. And the guy will start barking, yelling, going mad… you can’t be able to carry on with the conversation.

Oh poor Jews! They pissed people off everywhere they went, but it was never their fault! That’s right Jews, keep on blaming other people!

Jews are like the guy who gets tossed out of every bar in the city yet insists that he is doing nothing wrong, and it’s all the establishments’ fault for tossing him. Where’s there’s smoke, there’s fire. I would wager that the Jews have not spent the last two millennia not exactly trying to win friends and influence people, right?

Soral believes that communitarianism in France could have a similar effect, if the French Republic fails to apply its prestigious 1905 Law of Separation of Church and State, which is enshrined in the French constitution. According to a recent TV interview (Direct 8 / 88 minutes), Alain Soral stated: “Today, no one was surprised to see French presidents, prime ministers and other high French political figures meet elusively with the Jewish representing body every year in Paris, meetings that go against the laws of France and send mixed signals to the Republic.”

Well no kidding. The French state France is based on strict separation of church and state known as laïcité. And then the leaders of France go off every year and meet with the heads of the French Jewish community! But that’s not a violation of laïcité now, is it? More Jewish hypocrisy. You wonder why others tire of these people.

Net Neutrality Is Gone in the EU

Here.

I can’t believe they did this. There is absolutely nothing progressive or leftwing about the EU. Getting rid of Net Neutrality is catastrophic for the people but it’s great for the elites, the Deep States, the rich and the corporations.

You see, in the West, the rich and corporations already have 100% of the MSM because under capitalism, freedom of the press belongs anyone who can own a media outlet. No one else has any freedom of press at all. The rich, the elites, the corporations and the Deep States already have 100% of the media in the West.

The one thing they do not control is the Net, and boy are they mad about that. Because, not to toot my horn, but the Net is a place that even a radial maniac like me who spins a narrative completely opposite to all the poison the rich, the elites, the corporations and the Deep States sell can still get a voice. My site loads as fast as Fox News or CNN.

But without Net Neutrality, the rich, the elites, the corporations and the Deep States would get to put everyone selling views they don’t like in the slow, slow, slow lane because it would be very expensive to get in the fast lane so it would be similar to the cost barriers to entry to the MSM.

So getting rid of Net Neutrality means that the Net would become just like the rest of the Western media shithole – completely controlled by the the rich, the elites, the corporations and the Deep States with 0% outlets for any dissenters from their controlled narrative.

Another problem with getting rid of Net Neutrality is that we may be seeing a lot of lobbying in the near future whereby service providers bribe ISP’s to restrict access to the services provided by competing companies, etc. Revolting, isn’t it?

Interestingly, three countries within the EU – Netherlands, Slovenia and Finland – already have a range of net neutrality rules enshrined in law.

Yes, and all three of these countries will have their Net Neutrality rules overturned by Brussels! The EU overturning countries’ sovereignty again. The EU looks more and more catastrophic by the day. I think the progressive project of the day is to get rid of the EU. If we have to ally with the Right to do so, so be it. Nazis are scumbags, but I would much rather ally with Nazis than pro-corporate, pro-rich supporters of multiculturalism, the Cultural Left Freakshow and radical neoliberalism – the Elite Project Du Jour at Deep State MSM outlets like like the New York Times. You know our elites really suck when Nazis look better in comparison!

A series of amendments to a regulation on how internet traffic is managed in Europe were all rejected by MEP’s.

See how the disgusting BBC spun that? That’s how the Corporate Cancer has been spinning Net Neutrality – by calling it “regulating the Internet.” They have been selling it to people on a fake platform of “don’t regulate the Internet.” But if there’s anything on Earth that’s crying for regulation, it’s the sewer called the Internet. Almost all of the problems of the Net are caused by the fact that it is totally unregulated.

I have never for one second thought that the BBC is a progressive media outlet.

The BBC and the Death of the UK

The BBC is completely controlled by the rich, the elites, the corporations and the Deep State of the UK. It’s long been a rightwing outlet. There hasn’t been anything remotely left about it for ages now.

And don’t get me started on the repulsive Fake Left Guardian. Truly sickening. The UK really is turning into a shithole. Every time I turn around it looks more and more like the US. The UK took a wrong turn into the sewer in 1980 and they’ve never recovered. I am starting to think the place is hopeless.

There are a lot more reasons for this than I can go into now.

I will only discuss one of them right now.

Suffice to say that the decades-long privatization of the NHS, wildly supported by both parties (yes, most Labour MP’s strongly support the privatization of the NHS) is a complete disaster with no end in sight. It’s straight from the playbook of the Republican Party – defund the government, and then claim it doesn’t work (because you defunded it). Here in the US, only the Republicans use this slimy technique, but in the UK, all parties including the Fake Left Labour play this game.

I had no idea that the UK was this far gone. Pitiful.

Comparison of Inflected Verb Forms in English, Swedish, German and Finnish

Below is an Internet joke about the Finnish language. It shows how Swedish and German are both more complicated than English and in addition, how German is more complicate than Swedish. And of course, Finnish is wildly more complex than them all. You would think that Finnish dictionaries must be Hell, but that’s not the case. Generally only the root is listed, and the inflections are not. It is the same in English dictionaries where only run is listed and runs, ran, and running – the inflections, are not.

Of course, all of the forms below are not separate words for dog. Instead they mean things that would be expressed by a phrase in English such as with a dog, to a dog, from a dog, of a dog, for a dog, in a dog, dog’s. After that, there are the same forms with possessive suffixes such as with my dog, to your dog, from his dog, of their dog, for our dog, in her dog, its dog’s. And finally there are forms that attach to the possessive case forms such as My dog?, Even with your dog?, and Even without our dog.

A Look at Precontact Igbo Society

This is from a good friend of mine, a young Black guy I am mentoring. We have all sorts of great discussions. As you can see, I am such a horrible racist that I mentor young Black guys! How many racists do that? This also looks like a pretty well structured society, which seems to belie the myth that these people were complete savages pre-contact. They actually had a fairly elaborate system of social and political organization.

My few Afrocentrist readers like Hucipher might be especially interested in this

The Social Order of Pre-contact Igbo Society

Negro Major – This could either refer to the King Priest or the Judge Priest depending on which Igbo system you are talking about. The King Priest would be the only real political figure in centralized Igbo society, possibly playing the role of “Loyal Patron” or “Grand Manipulator.” In the case of the Awka, the major Igbo tribe who sold slaves, he was probably the latter; with the Nri, a tribe where slaves ran to to be free, the former.

Judge Priest – The Judge Priest of decentralized Igbo society was closer to what we would call a judge or priest in our own societies. While he was seen as a man of power, he didn’t hold an executive role.

Negro Concilium – These would be the heads of village families who participated as a council. Not only did their political role make their organization democratic, but throughout the status system, this group was the focal point where things were kept “egalitarian yet complex,” possibly the best way to describe this system. In order to retain this status, one  must have had good communication skills and be what we might call “fluent speakers” and needed to maintain discipline in their administrative role.

Negro Plebeian – These would be the various tradesmen who were disciplined in their crafts and developed a hard work ethic.

Negro Minor – Younger members who were fodder for the other roles.

Negro Vulgus – Murderers, thieves, and possibly rapists who broke the laws of their societies. However, domestic abuse probably evoked little concern. These were actually looked down upon in Black societies that had an active system law enforcement, such as the Ashanti or the Igbo, and the  Malians under Ibn Battuta who developed a system of law and order due to a religious culture.

IQ in Israel and Palestine

Jason writes:

This brings up another deep thought. Ever wonder why high IQ Jews and Palestinians can’t get along? Could it be because the Arab IQ is so inbred and low? How much can one blame on the Jews?

Needless to say, I strongly disagree with the thrust of this argument. However it does bring up an interesting question regarding what the IQ’s are of the Israelis and the Palestinians. After a bit of Googling around, I found these figures:

Ethnic group               IQ
Israeli Ashkenazim         107
Israeli Jewish             100
Israeli Sephardic           99
Israeli total               98
Israeli Mizrachi            93
Israeli Arabs/Palestinians  85

Most figures are from here. Israeli Ashkenazim figure is from here. Better figures including a study by James Flynn are here (Flynn 1998. Kaniel and Fisherman 1991). This page seems to prove that Lynn’s widely cited 94-95 figure for Israel is wrong and a better figure is 98. The figure for Palestinians is a result of a recent study done by Richard Lynn (Bakhieta and Lynn 2014).

Feel free to discuss and make of these figures what you will.

A Eugenic Effect for the Jizya Tax?

Makran writes:

The reason Christian Arabs from Lebanon/Syria/Jordan are smarter than Muslim Arabs or why Hindus from places like Bangladesh are smarter than Muslims is because of the Jaziya tax. Dhimmis or non-Muslims in Islamic lands had to pay a Jaziya tax or they would be killed, only escape from this is conversion to Islam. Thus the poorest low IQ sections of the population who could not pay the tax converted early.The smarter populations (and in the case of South Asia, the higher castes) used money to prevent conversion as much as possible. Thus the Muslims in these areas are predominantly low IQ genes while high IQ populations got separated into a different gene pool. Islam is dysgenic. Even Lew Kyan Yew of Singapore berated Malay Muslims for being dysgenic by the tendency of Muslims to marry even if the people involved were either very stupid of full of genetic diseases.

Do you think there is any truth to this? Interesting notion from the comments.

The Russia in Syria Lie for the Day

The propaganda lie for the day deals with Russia announcing their first casualty of the Syrian war. A Russian air force personnel was reported killed in Latakia. Latakia is where Russia has its huge and expanding Taurus base. The Russian Defense Ministry issued conflicting reports that he either committed suicide or was killed in an accident involving careless handling of weapons.

His family is disputing the suicide report, saying that there is no way he ever would have committed suicide, but families often do that after suicides because many suicides are quite unpredictable, which is one of the odd things about suicide. Yes, a seemingly perfectly happy person can up and kill themselves just like that. Happens all the time.

The West is running this like he was killed in combat, and Russia is lying by saying it was suicide or an accident. As far as I can tell, they have not proven their case at all. Their evidence apparently is, “Russia lies all the time, so we don’t believe anything they say. Because Russia lies all the time, they must be lying now.”

For one thing, it’s not even true that Russia tells a lot of lies. The NATO countries lie far more than Russia does. Mostly the Russians just deny things that are true but that they would be crazy to fess up to, which they can hardly be blamed for.

Yet More Lies about Russia in Syria

Remember when the Russian campaign first started and the Russians launched a number of cruise missiles from a ship in the Caspian Sea? It was quite a shock because no one even knew that Russia had cruise missile capability. Anyway, after the launch of those missiles, a story immediately surfaced that several of the me missiles had badly missed their targets and landed in Iran instead. I have been trying to verify this story ever since it first appeared. As far as I can tell, there is nothing to it. It’s not even true.

Also the story appeared in the West’s media 30 minutes before the missiles were even launched! This means that we had intelligence that showed that Russia was going to launch some cruise missiles soon. This reminds me of the fake Ukie interview between the two rebel leaders talking the Buk missile that supposedly shot down a jet airliner. The audio was widely decried as a fake almost as soon as it showed up, and sure enough enough, even the highly corrupted German intelligence said it was faked. Not only that, but the faked interview was created one hour before the jet was even shot down! This also shows that the Ukies had foreknowledge of the shootdown and it shows that they must have been in on a plot to stage a false flag shootdown of the airliner in order to frame Russia and the rebels.

Of course the entire Western media ran the story about the cruise missiles crashing in Iran without even bothering to see if it was true or not. I imagine this story was probably cooked up by the CIA and planted in the media as the Agency does with so many stories. They can do this easily because the CIA works hand in glove with most major US media organs. In fact,, at one time, most major US journalists were on the CIA payroll! Google Operation Mockingbird for more.

Another day, another lie. So goes it in the world on nonstop propaganda.

More Lies about Russia in Syria

Almost as soon as Russia landed in Syria and began its military campaign, the wall of propaganda and lies began.

One of them, which continues to this day, is that Russia is targeting the “moderate” rebels while leaving ISIS and maybe even Al Nusra alone. This lie is  quite mysterious because I have been following this Russian involvement closely and it was clear from almost the 2nd or 3rd day that Russia had been engaging in massive strikes against ISIS. In fact, Russia seems to have done far more damage to ISIS in its short entry into the war than the US has in many months. They continue to pound away at ISIS to this very day. ISIS targets are listed and there are often videos showing Russian attacks on ISIS. So I am mystified about this notion that Russia is not attacking ISIS but is instead attacking the US-supported “moderates.”

As far as I can tell, it is a great big fat humongous massive lie. There’s not even a hint of truth to it. Nevertheless the entire US control led MSM continues to repeat this lie as if it were gospel to this very day. In the UK it is the same and it is  probably the same in the rest of the West. Show me one single MSM outlet that has called out this big fat lie for what it is.

The West is just a name for a group of countries that are more or less colonized or “satellites” of the US. The foreign policy of the non-US states of the West seems to be to attack all of the US’s enemies and to advance US interests everywhere in the world. No country in the West seems to have an independent foreign policy at all.

Has Russia attacked the US-trained fake moderates? Of course they did. In fact it was the first thing they did on the first day of their strikes. What a message to send to the US! You can judge the US and Western reaction the very next day by the rage that that attack with a message carried.

The American people are apparently swallowing this crap whole.

Saddam Had a Guerrilla Structure Set up Well in Advance of the US Invasion

Here.

It is starting to look like no matter how the invasion and occupation would have been won, a full-scale guerrilla war would have ensued anyway.

Those stupid neocons. One wonders if they actually believed their own lies of if they knew they were lying. These high level government types like like rugs all the time anyway, so maybe it doesn’t even matter.

Another Frontline Hit Job on Assad

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVf8PcguuhQ

This time our intrepid reporter baits a pro-Assad militiaman. This man is in Latakia which is home to most of the Alawites in the country. He himself is either an Alawite or a Christian because he fears that the rebels will make sex slaves or slaves of his wife and kids. They are only enslaving non-Sunni Muslims, so that means that he either fears that his Alawite family will be enslaved or he fears that his Christian family will be enslaved.

It is true that there is heavy fighting now in the Al Ghab Plain where the government is making some progress. The government is at the west and south of the plain fighting east from the west edge and north and east from the southern edge. The plain is north of the city of Hama.

The government has indeed made some modest gains in fighting to the north and east of the south of the plain, capturing a number of towns. The problem is that the rebels are seriously dug in, having held these towns for a long time. Most residents of the Plain are Sunni Muslims. Fighting is definitely slow going here as it is in other areas, even with Russian air support.

It is crucial for the state to hold the Latakia region as this is where the Alawites live and if the “moderate” rebels break through they will massacre of lot of the Alawi.

The “moderates” have already committed many massacres all across Syria, mostly of government supporting Sunnis and Alawites. In fact, every time you hear about an armed group coming into a village and burning all of the homes and killing all the people, especially when they torture them to death, chop them to pieces or kill them in horrible ways, it was always the rebels and never the regime.

Nevertheless, the Western “free press” and the Western “free world” has blamed Assad for many if not all of these massacres, when in fact they were all done by the rebels, often the Free Syrian Army or FSA.

I have not heard of a single major civilian massacre yet committed by Assad. Not that Assad is a nice guy, it’s just that the SAA or even the militias simply do not go into villages and line up civilians and slaughter them. They do kill people, including civilians, but they just don’t do it like that is all. If the regime wants you dead, they will either kill you with a targeted assassination or they will arrest you, put you in a military prison and torture you to death.

The FSA is only 10% of the rebels. The rest are all Islamists. I doubt if there are any rebels as secular as Assad. Most FSA groups are actually Islamists themselves. A few in the south are not, but almost all FSA groups are under the command of Al Nusra or Al Qaeda. 90% of the weapons we give to the “moderate” rebels end up with the Islamists, typically with Al-Nusra. Even any FSA groups not under Nusra command fight alongside Nusra.

Even the few moderate groups are in bed with the West. They are committed to getting rid of Assad and putting in a pro-US regime in Syria just like all of the others in the Middle East. They probably also want to make peace with Israel like the other pro-US regimes have.

So even if you support moderate rebels and want to get rid of Assad, Syria will leave the Axis of Resistance which consists of Hezbollah, Iran and Syria at the moment, as all rebels are Sunni Arabs, and they all want to end Syria’s alliance with Iran and Hezbollah, as those those two are Shia, and all of the rebels hate the Shia and especially hate Iran. On the other hand, the few moderate rebel groups do not stand a chance or beating Assad, as they are so weak and few in number.

The choice really is Assad or radical Islam. That’s all there is to it. Almost all of Syrian secular society supports Assad. Polls of Syrian Christians show that 99% of them support Assad, and many have joined the various Christian militias that have formed. In supporting radical Islamists who kill Christians and destroy churches, the US is opposing nearly all of the Christians in Syria. I mentioned destroying churches? Yes. Whenever just about any of the rebels (even apparently the FSA) conquer a town, usually the first thing they do is destroy the churches, often by burning them.

The level of support for Assad in the capital is almost fanatical and has been compared to Soviet support for Stalin during World War 2. Whether this is due to regime propaganda or if it is due to people carefully analyzing the situation and supporting Assad on that basis is not known and really it doesn’t even matter.

The US position of waging war on both Assad and waging a fake war on ISIS is the height of sheer, utter lunacy.

Why Americans Blindly Support US Foreign Policy

Whenever the government or the media announces another “designated enemy” of the US, the vast majority of the US population just goes right along with the program and starts hating the new designated enemy. Polls usually show ~70-75% of the population starts opposing that nation happens to be, and around that same number starts calling that nation a threat to the US.

Granted peer pressure is involved in a lot of this. If you support the designated enemies of the US like I do, there are very serious repercussions including ostracism at the very least.

If there is a war going on, no matter how retarded, insane or evil the US is in fighting the war, you have to be a good German and “support the troops” which means support the stupid war effort. To not do so not only leads to social ostracism but also to serious anger and threats of violence.

Most people just want to go along. If the price of opposing US foreign policy means social ostracism or opposing a war means threats or getting punched, most people are not going to do it. Who wants to be a social reject or get hit? Only people like me who are socially ostracized by default and don’t care if they get ostracized even further are going to go out on a limb like that. When it comes to supporting US foreign policy, Americans are surely a nation of sheep. Ignorant sheep.

Why the US Opposes Russia in Syria

Now that Russia is involved in Syria, the idiotic psychos who run US foreign policy have decided to turn this into another US-Russia proxy war just like Afghanistan, where we supported psycho jihadi Al Qaeda types against another secular but brutal regime.

The man behind that great idea was Mr. Brezhinski, who is now nearly calling for the US to attack Russia. Brezhinski has been a Russia hater his whole life. His family are Polish nobility who supported fascists, and the Polish nobility and fascists hate nothing so much as Russians.

When the USSR fell, nothing changed in Brezhinski’s mind as his beef was always with Russia itself, not with the USSR. Most of the US Cold Warriors followed suit and began very provocative activities against Russia including extending NATO towards Russia. As long as Yeltsin and the other US satraps were in power, we were quite happy. The US spent the entire 90’s allying with the Russian Mafia and bankers in New York, Berlin and Tel Aviv in stripping bare almost everything in Russia that could be sold. Many Russian Jews made alliances with Jews in Tel Aviv, London and New York to help strip the country bare.

For the Jews, this was apparently paybacks, as Jews have been Russia-haters for a very long time now. For the bankers, it was just the usual thievery. With the election of Putin, Russia declared independence from the US and ended its status as a US colony. The fact that Russia decolonized itself from the US and refuses to obey us any longer is the reason that the Deep State has been conjuring up all of this anti-Putin propaganda.

These Deep State scumbags are militarists, and like all militarists, they always need an enemy. If they don’t have one, they go out and make one up, or they create enemies by provoking various entities. Americans are so stupid that they blindly go along with whoever the government and media says is the enemy du jour.

Frontline Runs Anti-Assad Propaganda

Here.

They have been running pieces forever now and every single one of them bashes the Syrian government and promotes the US-supported Islamist jihadis.  What is PBS anyway? Sounds like it is run by either the CIA or the US government. I thought it was supposed to be independent.

We have a free press, right? Fine show me one single major US newspaper or newsmagazine or TV or radio news station that is not taking either the US government line on Syria or worse? Show me one, one, one, one. I want to see one! Show me one single mass media outlet that is supporting Russia’s efforts in Syria and not taking the 100% phony lying US government line?

Americans are absolutely hopeless. They believe everything the media and the government tells them. They must be some of the most brainwashed people on Earth. I bet we are more brainwashed than North Koreans.

There is no free press in the US.

There is no free press in the UK either. Show me one single British mass media outlet that does not support the foreign policy of the British state. In fact, show me one single mass media outlet anywhere in Europe that does not blindly follow the foreign policy of the state. I can’t even think of one. Can you show me one single Western mass media outlet that supported Russia on the Ukraine? Can you show me one that is supporting Russia in Syria.

The West is dead and gone. There’s no free press and instead there is nothing but government and mass media propaganda and nonstop lying. What’s worse is that pitiful Westerners think that they live in free countries with a free press and freedom of speech. Hell they may as well be living in the USSR. Westerners are all brainwashed and hopeless. They believe every lie their governments and controlled media tells them!

What Is Plattdeutsch?

Beatrix writes:

‘Alt Hoch Deutsch’ (Old High German) sounds a bit like the Plattdeutsch my older Mennonite relatives spoke. But they left West Prussia for the Ukraine in 1802.

Plattdeutsch is a Low German language, and yes, it is an East Low German language with roots in far northeastern Germany and Prussia across the border into what is now Poland. It is close to Pomeranian, a dying East Low German language formerly spoken in that area that died out with the ethnic cleansing of the Germans there after WW2.

It is not intelligible with Standard German or really with any other German language, including other Low German languages. Low German is a completely different language from Standard German. German speakers cannot understand it at all.

Dutch speakers can actually understand Low German languages better than Germans can. That is because in some ways they are quite close to Dutch even though one is Old Franconian and the other is Old German. But there are also German “dialects” that are straight up from Franconian also, especially those spoken in northwest Germany near the borders of the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. There are dialects (or really languages in that area that are quite difficult to characterize as either:

German
Dutch
Neither

I am thinking specially of the languages spoken where German, the Netherlands and Belgium all come together around Kerkrade, Aachen and Stolberg.

Muslims Continue to Persecute Christians Even in the West

Here.

I figured this would happen. I think they need to house the refugees separately. Separate the Christians from the Muslims.Separate the unaccompanied women and girls who are being sexually harassed from the men.

So much for the “traditional Muslim tolerance towards non-Muslims.” It pretty much never existed in the past and it certainly does not now. When it comes to non-Muslims, Islam does not play well with others.

Sometimes, “Islamophobia” is a valid concern.

ISIS Are Nazis

Here.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzCRkZYXwBw

Interesting accents. His Arabic sounds like a Tunisian Arabic accent, but when he speaks Hebrew, he speaks it with a French accent. But if he is Tunisian, he may well have learned French. Or perhaps he is a Tunisian Arab from France who s0peaks both Arabic and French fluently. What is odd is that his Hebrew is also quite good; good, fluent Hebrew.

It appeared on an ISIS website.

If we define Nazis as genocidal antisemites, then ok, ISIS are Nazis all right. Looks like they are trying to finish the job that Hitler started. How many White nationalists will support them in this effort, I wonder. Alex Linder, where are you?

I would say that the Jews are correct when they label some of these radical Islamists as Nazis. Jews are not always wrong in their paranoid screeches you know, and ISIS is, like William Pierce was, definitely not good for the Jews, that’s for sure.

Comparison of Old German with Modern German

Althochdeutsch

Ik gihorta dat seggen,
dat sih urhettun ænon muotin
Hiltibrant enti Hadubrant untar heriun tuem.
Sunufatarungo iro saro rihtun,
garutun se iro gudhamun, gurtun sih iro suert ana
helidos, ubar hringa, do sie to dero hiltiu ritun.

Modern German Language

Ich hörte (glaubwürdig) berichten,
dass zwei Krieger, Hildebrand und Hadubrand, (allein)
zwischen ihren beiden Heeren, aufeinanderstießen.
Zwei Leute von gleichem Blut, Vater und Sohn, rückten da ihre Rüstung zurecht,
sie strafften ihre Panzerhemden und gürteten ihre
Schwerter über die Eisenringe, die Männer,
als sie zu diesem Kampf ritten.

Alothochdeutsch was the first form of the |German language and it can be called Old German. It existed from 500-1000 CE. It is probably somewhat analogous to Old English, but I doubt if the two languages would have been intelligible. The passage above is from 900, written about the same time as Beowulf was written.

It is truly amazing how much German has changed. Old German for all intents and purposes is a completely different language. The two languages look nothing alike at all and there is no way that modern Germans would understand a passage spoken in Old German. In that sense they are analogous to the relationship between English and Old English.

The modern German language called Hochdeutsch or High German is based on the language that Martin Luther used in his Bible translation. Luther was from Saxonia and the language he used was an Upper Saxon dialect modified to make it intelligible to as many Germans as possible.

Presently Standard German is a mix of Upper Saxon and Thuringian spoken with a Northern German accent. No one ever spoke this way naturally as part of their dialect from their home region. For hundreds of years, Hochdeutsch was only a written language. Various German writers used variations of it to try to make their written German as intelligible to as many Germans as possible.

Only around 1800 did Hochdeutsch begin to be used as a spoken language. At this time it began to be taught in schools and for a long time, German students learned it as a what amounted to a foreign language, their first language being whatever German dialect was spoken in their region.

In the 20th Century, Hochdeutsch began to be a common first language for many Germans who grew up speaking it either alongside their regional dialect or instead of the dialect. It was also during the past century that Hochdeutsch began t supplant many German dialects. The truth is that many German dialects are not dialects at all but instead they are full blown language in terms of both intelligibility and structure. Ethnologue lists 20 different German dialects as separate languages and the truth is that there are many more than that.

Muslim Migrants Fueling Rape Epidemic in Germany

Figures.

I so knew this was going to happen.

A growing number of women and young girls housed in refugee shelters in Germany are being raped, sexually assaulted and even forced into prostitution by male asylum seekers, according to German social work organizations with first-hand knowledge of the situation.

Many of the rapes are occurring in mixed-gender shelters, where, due to a lack of space, German authorities are forcing thousands of male and female migrants to share the same sleeping areas and restroom facilities.

Conditions for women and girls at some shelters are so perilous that females are being described as “wild game” fighting off Muslim male predators. But many victims, fearing reprisals, are keeping silent, social workers say.

At the same time, growing numbers of German women in towns and cities across the country are being raped by asylum seekers from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Many of the crimes are being downplayed by German authorities and the national media, apparently to avoid fueling anti-immigration sentiments.

Wherever Muslims go in Christian Europe, rape is never far behind.
