Sorry, folks, I got the edited copy of my paper back and I realized that for South American languages, I had made all sorts of claims with zero references to back them up. Well, they will eat me alive over that. And in going back over the data to do that, I realized that a huge number of my claims were dead wrong, so I had to go back and redo the whole mess. And mess it is. South American languages are a hellhole.
They’ve been rather neglected in Amerindian studies because, well, the North Americans, as in the Americans, have done a bang up job on North American languages, and a pretty darn good job on Central American languages to boot. By contrast, South American linguists have not been doing nearly so much work perhaps because their academic system or culture is just not as far advanced as ours is. It’s taken me four days now to write four pages, if that gives you any idea of what’s involved. Nevertheless, there is a light at the end of the tunnel here, and as I am closing in on the finish line.
139 pages. I really don’t think it was supposed to be so long. 395 references. I wonder if that’s a record. How many hours? 574 hours. Basically almost four months at a full-time job. Pay? LOL I won’t make a nickel.
Why the length and all the references? I really wanted to make my case as well as I could, so I couldn’t help but go on and pile on more and more arguments and especially references. The more you do this, the harder it gets for your opponents to argue with your ideas.
You can check it out here if you want, but I doubt if most of you are interested unless you are into the subject.
I suppose I should get back to regular posing now.
This is taking up all my time these days. Oh well, at least I have a job that I’m working at full-time.
If you are interested, you can check the progress of it here. The problem with this sort of thing is that once you start down one of the rabbit holes, you can stay down there a long time and still not feel that you’ve finished. At some point, you have to say enough is enough and move on. 75 pages on the page and over 200 references. I’m going nuts on references. If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, bury them with bullshit. Works pretty good.
Here is a link to the article I have been working on lately. I spend a good part of every day on this thing. So far it’s 54 pages and I have no idea how many references. Maybe 150 by now. I’m going through putting in references and adding to the copy that’s already there because some sections are not well filled-out.
The subject is Historical Linguistics and it’s definitely specialist stuff. It’s headed for a peer reviewed academic journal. What I’m saying it’s not for everyone, and non-specialists might have a hard time understanding it. On the other hand, the subject matter is also pretty general for the general reader who’s interested in some rather intellectual arguments. There’s not a lot of really technical linguistics material in there.
First, a pitch for supporting this website and our sleuthing group:
Our group is clearly the best Delphi sleuthing group on the Internet by far and has been since it was founded four years ago in 2017.
Unlike any other sleuthers, we have determined the main suspect in the case and have a good idea of what happened during the crime and what the crime scene looked like. Best of all, much of our information is via solid sources such as search party members, official case documents, and LE sources close to the investigation. No one else has come close to uncovering the amount and quality of information we have.
Why not join the 230+ members who have already signed up for the best Delphi sleuthing team of all? How about getting your money’s worth? There is a small fee of $20 to join, which includes lifetime membership.
First of all, all of this information under the Keys to the Crime and the Motive heading, except for some, came from the police. Info that did not come from the police in that section is italicized.
Second, warning: I will be discussing some truly horrendous and even disgusting things below, so if you can’t handle it, don’t read. I am very sorry for the horrible details I will lay out here, but remember the reaction of LE to this crime at the first press conference and how shaken up they were? This is why.
Third, it appears the facts of this case are so much more horrible than we ever thought.
Fourth, The term guardian below refers to either a mother, a grandmother, or a grandfather.
Fifth, Our source is a LE officer close to the case. We can’t tell you anymore about them because they can get in trouble for leaking to us.
Lately they have been careful in how they talk to us. They mostly talk in riddles. Some of us call the source “The Riddler” in reference to the Batman show. They also speak using a lot of cryptic statements. In addition, almost everything we get is not posed to us as a fact. Instead statements are posed as hypotheticals, theories, possible theories, and above all questions. The source throws a boxful of pieces of a jigsaw puzzle at us. Further, they aren’t very nice about it lately. I guess we are supposed to put the puzzle together.
We think we do a good job of that, but if you want to attack us on the basis that our info comes in cryptic statements and riddles we don’t put together the puzzles properly, you are free to do that.
Sixth, you will notice I use the “editorial we”. Well, I do have a Journalism degree, so I know what I am doing. Also, I wish to make these posts less egocentric. Most importantly, all of this information comes to me from members of my sleuthing group. So when I say, “we,” I am saying this is what the whole group thinks. So in a way, all of my posts are not being written by me but are instead being written by my group.
Seventh, We are not referring to either girl by name below, however, there seems to be some confusion about which girl was the focus of the crime. Therefore, we will refer to the 14 year old and the 13 year old. We know which we are talking about in every instance, but we are making the girls indistinguishable out of respect for them and due to endless attacks that our reporting is not sensitive to the girls, who, in all honesty, are dead anyway and could care less what anyone says about them.
We are going to try a different tack in this post. A lot of the information below will be stated in a similar way as it came to us from our source. That is, the facts below will be posed mostly as hypotheticals, theories, possible theories, and most of all, questions. Some things will be stated as fact. It’s up to you to put it all together.
We just figured out much more about this crime. We now know at least the motive and why certain things were done.
First of all, we are going to need to hide the names of some people.
The Main Suspect and Other Players in the Delphi Murders Case
We are not going to list the names of any of the main player or others involved in this case at the moment, or possibly ever. If you join our private group though, you can learn all of this information. We are doing this to protect the suspect and possible suspects, who are factually all presently innocent of committing this crime, from harassment and harm.
Mr. X: The main suspect in the case. Delphi resident, age 49 at the time of the crime, otherwise unremarkable person. The police think he is the man who actually conducted the murders, and they also think he is the man on the bridge. We agree with the police on this. Listed as not a possible suspect but in fact as the main suspect in the crime. He is also now the main suspect in the Evansdale Murders.
J or now Mr. J:J was a 17 year old boy at the time of the crime. He is now a 21 year old man. He is closely associated with Mr. X. We are now stating for an absolute fact that J, or at least a photo of J, is the 19 year old Catfish Boy used to catfish a girl over four months on Snapchat. In addition, a young man seen by a female witness at the south side of the bridge at 12:30 PM in the day of the murders.
She chased him off her property. She said he had dark and evil eyes. The thing is that the composites of the Catfish Boy and the young man seen at the bridge above are almost perfect matches of each other. Therefore, we believe that it is possible that J was present at the bridge that day, although LE have not confirmed that to us. All they have confirmed to us is that he is absolutely the Catfish Boy. Police also believe that he helped set up the scary and bizarre crime scene. There is also “a question whether he was just the Catfish Boy or whether he played a larger role than that,” to quote our source. Close friends with Misters P, B, Q, and F. Listed as a “possible suspect” in the crime.
Mr. P:Mr. P was a 26 year old man at the time of the crime, now 30 years old. He is closely associated with one of the families. Police believe that he helped set up the bizarre crime scene, but are uncertain of his involvement beyond that. The crime scene was probably set up by these young men no more than 24 hours before the crime. He may have had foreknowledge of this crime by a couple of hours or so.
He was interrogated by police soon after the crime. He got out of jail seven months before the crime. He has a criminal record mostly for repeated drunk driving offenses. We believe he met criteria for Conduct Disorder as a youth and may have trended into Antisocial Personal Disorder as an adult. On the other hand, he is very charming, but most of these types are like that. Close friends with J and Misters B, Q, and F. Police say he is a “possible suspect” in this crime.
Mr. B: Mr. B is a former police officer in a nearby town and a good friend of J and Misters P, Q, and F. I believe he was in his mid-30’s at the time of the crime. Soon after the crime, he was abruptly fired from his job. LE then searched his apartment and turned it upside down in the process. We have no idea why he was fired or why the apartment was searched. We are uncertain of his role in the crime, except that he may have foreknowledge of the crime by a couple of hours. He may have helped set up the crime scene, but we have no evidence of that.
Mr. Q: Another young man, friends with J and Misters F, B, and P, who helped set up the bizarre crime scene. We call him Mr. Q because his identity is not known at this time. He is listed by police as a “possible suspect” in the crime.
Mr. F: A young man, 20 years old at the time of the crime, now 24 years old. Police believe that he impregnated the 14 year old girl and he was pressuring her to get an abortion. We are calling him Mr. F because he was the father of the fetus the 14 year old girl was carrying. His involvement is unknown beyond that, however he is good friends with J and Misters Q, B, and P. He is not a suspect in this crime.
The Keys to the Crime and the Motive
Note: All of the information below came to us from the police except for whatever is in italics. That came to us either from rumors, our own investigations, good sources other than the police, or simply our own hypotheses.
There are some keys to this crime:
Remember that post a man made to his friend about “I only nutted in her once” and “she was only 14?” That text message is the key to the whole case right there. That was supposedly from a rap song. Well, that has nothing to do with one of the men having sex with a 14 year old girl like everyone thinks.
What if those men were referring to a mutual friend of theirs, 20 years old, Mr. F, having sex with a 14 year old girl, one of the murdered girls? And perhaps not just having sex with her her but actually knocking her up? I have been reporting since very early on in the crime that one girl was pregnant. I received more abuse for this statement than for anything else I wrote about this crime.
However, I can now that as an absolute fact that one of the murdered girls, the 14 year old, was pregnant. She was in the early stages of pregnancy. In order to determine if either girl could have been pregnant, unfortunately we had to do an investigation into their personal lives. Our investigation revealed that both of those girls were sexually active in terms of PIV sex, so getting pregnant was definitely a possible thing. I suppose a better way of putting it would be to say that both girls had had PIV sex at least one time.
Both of those girls were growing up way, way too fast. They were both 13-14 going on 20. The 14 year old had a cousin, M., who was taking her to bonfire parties where there was a lot of drugs and drinking for a few years from 12-14. There were many grown men at those parties, including many who may have had no qualms about having sex with a 13-14 year old girl. And this girl may indeed have been using drugs from ages 12-14, although we are not certain about this. Her guardian, a grandmother, had recently forbidden her from hanging out with this cousin as a bad influence.
Remember that video “We have a secret?” released the night before the crime where both girls are holding up their fingers in the secret signal? The secret was that the 14 year old girl was pregnant, and she had told the 13 year old.
Let us assume that a 20 year old man, Mr. F, impregnated the 14 year old girl. What if perhaps Mr. F was pressuring the girl to abort the baby, and the girl was balking? Mr. F was looking at possible incarceration for banging a 14 year old girl and then 18 years of child support. Could it be that Mr. F told J and Misters P, Q, and B about his plight with the girl who would not abort? Is there a possibility that J and Misters Q and P got together and decided to terrorize this the girl into aborting the child? And perhaps an older man these young men knew, a 49 year old man named Mr. X, got into the mix somehow.
The paragraph below is completely hypothetical. It is a hypothesis we are considering, but it has no direct evidence to back it up at the moment.
How about this for a hypothesis? Perhaps Mr. X also felt the girl should abort. Perhaps word got out that if this girl became obviously pregnant, and the 14 year oldgirl’s male guardian was threatening to either harm or kill Mr. F or lock him up. Could it be that this guardian, a very religious man by all accounts, is anti-abortion and opposed this abortion plan? Could that be the nature of the falling out with this male guardian and Mr. X?
Could it be that these three young men, J and Misters P and Q, set up that weird bizarro crime scene beforehand with the stuffed bear, the dolls, the sheet with the smiley face, the crucifix, on and on, to lure the 14 year old girl there to terrorize her and threaten her to have the abortion?
Perhaps these young men were more involved than that. Perhaps J, Mr. P, and Mr. Q, the unknown third man were actually involved in the planning of this crime and instead of intending to terrorize the 14 year old girl, they actually intended to murder her. In that case, LE would be looking at a murder involving one older man and three young men, or four people. Mr. X is of course an actual suspect. Is it possible that LE could be looking into these three young men as suspects, but in this case a lesser quality of suspects, “possible suspects,” too?
The following information did not come to us from the police. It consists of unverified rumors, albeit very long-lasting ones. However, a female search party member has stated that one girl’s abdominal cavity was excavated.
Remember those rumors about one girl being gutted and partially disembowled with a gut knife?
What if that were true and not just an idle rumor? What if a search party member reported that it was true that one of the girls was seen in this condition at the crime scene? And that the disembowelment was so complete that her entire abdomen (which includes the uterus) had been removed? Is it possible that this “operation” was done in order to remove the uterus of a pregnant girl? If you can imagine how horrendous a girl in that condition may have seen to those who discovered her, can you now start to understand why the police at that first press conference all looked so freaked out? Most of them looked like they had just seen a ghost.
A scalpel was also found at the scene. There is a crime scene photo of a scalpel at the scene which we are trying to get a hold of. If a girl was disembowled and had her abdominal contents removed, a scalpel would have proven handy in that operation in order to cut away tissue. One wonders how this killer could have had enough medical knowledge to conduct a Jack the Ripper like operation on a victim. Is it possible that the killer was a very avid deer hunter? And is it possible that in killing these deer, he had a lot of experience with gutting deer, which involves removing their abdominal contents. After all, a gut knife included in the five knives that BG has in that deer kit he is wearing around his waist.
Could it be that we are now all the way back around to our very first theory that we got torn to pieces over – a hillbilly abortion?
Bottom line is a girl was pregnant is absolutely the key to this crime.
Police Have Opened an Investigation into Who Is Leaking to the Beyond Highbrow website!
We have learned that the police are investigating who in the police is leaking to us, which shows our facts are correct. If the source was giving us nonsense and lies, the police would not care at all. This is excellent because it shows that our account of this crime is correct at least in part.
It also shows that police read our website and are onto us and our sleuthing group. I always thought maybe they did, but I never knew they took us so seriously.
We now have a retired LE homicide detective who worked 75 cases working with our group. He has been incredibly helpful to us.
Top US Expert on Serial Murder Contacts Beyond Highbrow and Expresses Interest in Working on the Case!
Also, one of the nation’s top experts on serial killers has expressed interest in joining us in trying to solve this crime, as has a female homicide detective who ran an 80-person unit in France.
The serial killer expert lives near me. He called me a few weeks ago in the morning and we talked at length about the crime. He was extremely interested in the crime and wanted to get involved. He said he had worked a lot of homicide cases with police all over the country.
I get a list of search word and phrases that people used to find my site. They’re mostly pretty normal, centering around the Delphi Murders, Chechclear (Have you seen it yet?), and “Is Mitch McConnell gay?” Yes, he is, very much so.
But every now and then, I get something really weird. The other day someone somehow landed on my site after searching for “Dick won’t fit in Dominican Republican pussy.”
Ok, that’s really weird. I wasn’t aware this was a concern for some men, but perhaps it is. At any rate, the problem has never been discussed, so it can’t be too serious. What’s odd is I have never written about such a thing. Not even Dominican Republicans. Are there even any? Never written about Dominican pussy, nor am I familiar with it, but I’m always open to new opportunities in life. And what on Earth might be so important about “Dominican Republican pussy” (assuming it even exists), and why it should be tighter than a Pismo clam is simply beyond me.
Related to the Delphi Murders, as you well know, I am widely hated. People say have never been right even one time, lie about and make up everything I say and in general am not a credible source. I will use this piece as a general reference to my credibility instead of addressing it endlessly in every post.
However, they have been saying exactly this about many different things I ever written over the last 15 years, Consistently, I was shown to be right and they were wrong. Not one hater ever apologized and all continued to describe me as discredited and said that nothing I had ever said had been shown to be correct.
Particularly that I have no credibility and have never been right about anything. On the contrary I have been right about many things. I’m even correct about many of my political, philosophical, and other intellectual views because I think over all of these positions intensively before I make a decision about which position or philosophy to take.
As far as the matter at hand, many of my Delphi rumors have been proven correct, mostly correct, or somewhat correct over the years. When Leigh Kerr came out with his leaks from case documents, many of my haters on Reddit kept remarking at how similar Leaker’s shocking leaks were to and how closely they resembled many of the things I had been saying for years. Well, of course. It’s always like that. The thing is these same people who said so much of what I said was proven right are now saying I have no credibility and I’ve never been right about anything. See how people are?
I recently had a long relationship – mostly just a friendship – with a young woman aged 27-28. She was 30 years my junior. One thing she kept saying over and over is how wise I was and how I had so much wisdom. Of course. I have had other young people on the Net who called me “sensei.”
I am currently the chosen mentor of a few young men in their 20’s, though I don’t mentor them enough. They chose me as their mentor. And I have heard that there are young women whom I am a mentor to, all in their 20’s. They say I’m their hero, idol, or mentor. A man in India recently wrote me and said his father, a very learned man, read my stuff and said that it was most wise and correct view of life he’d ever read in 60 years.
I attracted a huge legion of haters that grew and grew as I got more and more famous, well, Net-famous anyway. Related to this website and the articles I wrote, I have had three offers to be on TV and one offer to be in a documentary movie in Canada. One of the shows that wanted me on was Inside Edition. Yes, Inside Edition invited me on their show. All of you haters out there – how many of you have been offered to appear on the famous TV show Inside Edition? Not one of you.
I’ve been interviewed once on real radio and several times on Net radio, often for a full hour. These have ceased because the politics of the site and mine have drifted apart.
I can’t believe how many well-known people are familiar with this website. I recently had an offer to interview a TV-famous talking head pundit who has been on TV, the radio, and podcasts many times. He has written a few books proving that Republicans have been stealing our elections with voting machines for decades. He asked the name of my site and I told him and he said, “Oh yes! Great website! I’ve read it.” What? What? This famous guy who writes books and goes on TV reads my website? But he wasn’t the first.
I don’t know it requires to be a “professional freelance journalist,” but I would say that anyone with a BA in Journalism who has a blog qualifies. See here on Rational Wiki, where the excellent authors of this website refer to me as a freelance journalist.
Possibly the earliest reference to an “alternative left” comes from the blog of freelance journalist Robert A. Lindsay in August 2015. Lindsay, describing some on the far-left moving away from identity and social justice politics and moving towards focusing more on Economic Populism, proposed the alt-left as a “mirror” of the alt-right and described it as left-wing on economics and right-wing on social issues.
In general the “Alt-Left” could be considered more radical than the “Realist Left”, being to their right on social issues and to their left on most everything else.
It has also been said that I am not a “legitimate” journalist. Look. I graduated from J-School. If you’re doing journalism, you’re a journalist. Julius Stryker was a journalist, an ugly one yet still legitimate. He was hanged for his journalism. Der Strumer was a magazine, a legitimate magazine.
There are no legitimate and illegitimate journalists, newspapers, or magazines. There are only journalists, newspapers and magazines. If they exist they are legitimate.
Really all bloggers who are writing about topical events are journalists. Are they professionals? I have no idea, but some of the better ones may as well be. It really doesn’t matter whether a journalist is paid or not. Does it matter whether an artist’s work sells or not? Does it matter whether a musicians is in an actual money-making band. Does it matter if a writer’s work is published or unpublished? Not really. Plenty of great artists who never sell their stuff or make a nickel off of it.
Also I have published numerous pieces for money in magazines and small local papers. I have even published short fiction in literary magazines. In addition, I recently published a chapter in an academic book on Linguistics published out of a university in Turkey. It took me five years to write it. I had to make it through two peer reviews with the top names in the field and it passed. So, yes, I am a published author.
I also write for peer reviewed academic journals. In addition, I have refereed for a journal. That means serving on the peer review board. The field I published in is Linguistics.
Yes, I was an assistant editor of a large magazine for a while, but that was 40 years ago.
My enemies trash my writing skills but the general opinion is that I am very good. They’ve been saying this since I was seven years old, believe it or not. I started a novel at age nine. In particular, I do not see many grammatical or spelling errors in my work. This is another accusation. My writing has better punctuation and spelling that most people I write to on the Net.
Since my enemies insist that I am seriously mentally ill, I may as well come clean. I’ve been diagnosed probably ~30 times over the years by clinical psychologists and psychiatrists. It is true that I do have a mental disorder, and I do take psychiatric medication for it. Not that there’s any shame in that, despite what my enemies think. I have been diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, which is an anxiety disorder. Most people with OCD are not crazy and do not appear crazy. Maybe a bit distracted. Maybe a little nervous like most anxiety disorder types. Most people I meet don’t treat me like I’m nuts. I don’t say weird things or engage in strange behavior. I’m the most normal guy around.
Furthermore, I’m pretty shy, so I don’t even talk much, and when I do, I have a very soft voice. If you meet me, I look like this brainy nerd soft spoken intellectual college professor guy with preppy clothes. Some people from the Net – my fans – came out to meet me and they were shocked at how introverted I was. I pretty seem like this nicest guy you’ll ever meet. This is of course the complete opposite of how my enemies describe me. If you told people who know me all the crazy stuff my enemies say about me, they would probably fall over laughing because I’m not anything like that.
I do not have any personality disorder on Axis 2. My personality is healthy. I don’t have any issues with sociopathy. I’m not narcissistic at all, but I do have high self-esteem, which is not the same thing.
I generally do not have any serious mood disorder, but I do feel a bit down a lot. I doubt it meets criteria for anything. I don’t suffer from mania.
I don’t have any psychotic disorder and I never have. I’ve never been psychotic for a day in my life.
Perhaps my writing rambles a bit. Who knows? A lot of us writers ramble on. It’s not pathological and it’s not even a sign of bad writing. Read James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Thomas Wolfe, or William Burroughs some time. Some of the greatest authors of all “rambled.” We ramble because we write too much. That’s why they have these people called editors. Because most of us serious writers ramble and go on and on and write forever, as in way too much. Editors exist to cut the typical good writers prose down to size.
I’ve already stated many times that I never made up a lie one time on here. I am a professional, and this is a violation of professional ethics.
Many critics think it’s ridiculous that I get access to good sources, official documents, including confidential sources with important people who give information that is secret or supposed to be under wraps. I was trained to do this. I know how to interview and how to acquire, cultivate and keep sources around. I know how to get secret and official documents that are supposed to be confidential.
I talk to people all the time who tell me they will get in trouble if it gets out that they talked to me. I honor strict confidentiality and will do anything to protect my sources. So, yeah, I do know how to get “inside sources,” “special sources,” etc. I’m trained to do that. I’m sort of an investigative reporter because I specialize stories where a lot of the information is supposed to be secret. I’ve also broken some pretty huge stories that even caught the attention of documentary film makers.
In addition, I founded a brand new political movement, so I am a political activist. At one time this movement had 18,000 members on Facebook groups. It’s a movement with its own carefully thought out political philosophy with position statements, manifestos, etc. A political scientist, a professor at a university in Poland, found out about my movement and wrote a couple of articles about it for political science journals. So it was important enough to get written up in the journals.
I also took two other pics but I think I’m grimacing too much in those pics so I didn’t put them up. This seemed to be the best of the three. What do you think? I don’t mind guys’ opinions, but if I still have any female readers I haven’t scared off yet, it might be interesting to get their opinions. I used to have quite a few female readers on the old site, but most of them took off when I went to the new site. My female readers were always telling that a lot more women read my site than I thought.
I actually like this pic. I can’t believe because I always hate my photos. I think I need better lighting. As you can see, this is my new haircut. I’m rocking a 1970’s glam rockstar look. What do you think? I thought my looks were shot but women keep telling me that I look great. Even young women aged 18-25. Even a few underage girls, 17 years old. Don’t worry, I didn’t touch them. I’m sure one day I will be old and ugly if I make it that long. Time gets us all in the end and that’s if we luck out!
I guess the moral to the story though is Chad never dies. Not that Looks do much good at this age. I could be the best looking man my age on Earth and it wouldn’t do me one damned bit of good. Well, it would work for women my age, but it would be useless for young women. The only thing that works at this age is money. That’s especially important for young women. You want a young woman at my age, you’ll have to shell out the cash.
I definitely need to smile more.
Ok, which one looks better, this one or the one at the top?
I hope I haven’t published this before, but if I did, hey, chalk it up to vanity, eh?
These two glowing recommendations are from this fellow. I really like him a lot!
Peter S Piispanen
Stockholm University, Graduate Student
On my work below, presently a 242 page, well, let’s face it, at this point, it’s basically a book, right? I have not yet found a publisher for it, though I have received some rave reviews from such far-flung places as Japan and Russia.
Mutual Intelligibility of Languages in the Slavic Family
Intelligibility studies are both interesting and of importance for the study of phonology, grammar, historical linguistics, the effect of language contact situations, as well as the sociocultural factors influencing languages perceived as high or low status, and so on.
Lindsay here presents the intelligibility between many of the Slavic languages in great detail – and this clears up many common and unspoken questions about these languages…the paper comes well recommended!
This paper was actually published, believe it or not, and it had to go through two peer reviews to get there. The second peer review included the world’s top Turkologists.
Here’s the cite in case any of you are interested:
Lindsay, Robert. 2016. “Mutual Intelligibility among the Turkic Languages,” in Süer Eker and Ülkü Şavk. Çelik. Endangered Turkic Languages Volume I: Theoretical and General Approaches: Before the Last Voices Are Gone (Tehlİkedekİ Türk Dİllerİ Cİlt I: Kuramsal Ve Genel Yaklaşimlar Son Sesler Duyulmadan), Ankara, Turkey/Astana, Kazakhstan: International Turkish-Kazakh University and International Turkic Academy.
I also came up with the subtitle of the series – “Before the Last Voices Are Gone.” We went round and round about a few choices until we settled on that one. It has a nice literary beauty to it, I think.
I never did get a hard copy of that book I am published in. It was extremely hard to get a copy in part because it cost $75 and also because it would have had to have been shipped from Turkey to the US, and I understand that shipping costs for such things are just awful.
I have an e-copy of course, but it’s just not the same thing as a book, right? A book – you know, that hard thing with pages in it that you actually hold in your hand? Remember those things from a long time ago, maybe before some of you were born? If you don’t remember what a book is, perhaps ask your parents. They should definitely know what a book is.
It seems that a lot of publications are going pretty much e-publication only with no hardcover. Color me disappointed. No folks, it’s not the same thing. It’s just not. Sorry.
Mutual Intelligibility Among the Turkic Languages
A massive paper by Robert Lindsay on the study of mutual intelligibility of the Turkic languages, dispelling many myths and including language examples, historical considerations, and more – heartily recommended for any Turkologist or student of any Turkic language!
Actually not banned but a lot of my posts got removed. I think I set it off with a post about the Brock Turner rape case along the lines of my post earlier. Then the commenter went through and vindictively removed every single comment I had made that way no matter what I said.
I have a hard time imaging a liberal man being so emotional, but liberal-Left “men” are hardly even real men anymore. They’re humans with male bodies who think and feel like women. They’re actually much worse than women themselves because at least women and nice to look, you can fuck them, and the sensible ones can be quite a bit of fun. There’s no benefit to the male feminist at all. He’s a pussy, a cuck and a gender traitor all at once. Hang ’em high!
On the other hand it may well have been a woman because that emo vindictiveness – removing every post I made just to be a cunt – is classic female behavior. An enraged woman is as good as blind. And the last time I got banned was for criticizing the Epstein case and calling the “victims” things like “little teen whores” which is precisely what those junior strumpets were.
Moderator is probably a feminist woman.
I’m trying real hard to decide who I hate more – American conservatives or American liberals. I really want to like the liberals because I basically am one from back before the movement got body-snatched, but they keep punching me in the face! And you hit a man enough times, and he might just start hitting back, you know. That’s just human nature.
Conservatives are fairly friendly but American conservatives are like…let me think of a good description…”retarded howling apes on PCP.” How’s that?
Blocked you, jackass. If you can’t figure out that “finger-banging” a woman when she has passed out and thus cannot give consent is rape, I don’t know what to say.
I never said he didn’t rape her. I just said it was difficult case. This guy is a flaming SJW faggot with his gay rainbow colors flying high for everyone to see and cheer on his glorious career in sodomy. I’m not against gay men if they were born that; in fact, I cheer them on. But I really hate SJW fags. They’re as bad as feminists or BLM or any of the rest of the Cultural Left scum.
A friend of mine is a bit of an Alt Left gay man. He’s my age. He calls himself a conservative but he’s actually a Marxist! He’s just a conservative Left type like me, left on economics but somewhat right on social issues. He calls these types “gay libbers” the old name for gay liberationists, the first name of the pro-gay movement in the West.
He also hates faggoty pride parades and all the rest of the in your face Gay IP disgusting nonsense. He says, “We gays all just need to get married and move to the suburbs and live just like all the regular normal people there.”
Mutual Intelligibility of Languages in the Slavic Family
Intelligibility studies are both interesting and of importance for the study of phonology, grammar, historical linguistics, and the effect of language contact situations, as well as the sociocultural factors influencing languages perceived as high or low status, and so on.
Lindsay here presents the intelligibility between many of the Slavic languages in great detail – and this clears up many common and unspoken questions about these languages…the paper comes well recommended!
This work yet remains unpublished. At the moment, it is 260 pages. At this point it is pretty much a book. It is simply a massive overview of all of the Slavic languages and it does add some new languages to Slavic. It also changes the classification around a bit. This might be harder to publish, as Slavicists are a pretty stuck-up lot and if you are not a Slavicist yourself, they pretty much don’t want to talk to you or publish your work.
Turkologists are a bit like that too, but there are not nearly as many of them, and they accepted my work as an amateur.
I did have one Slavicist tell me that all of this data has never been published before in a single work. Sure it has mostly been published, but most of it is in obscure journal papers that no one reads. And no doubt a lot of good Slavicist work is being done in Slavic languages themselves and not in English. I know it is true in the Balkans as much of the work is still published in Serbo-Croatian.
I sent the paper out to a few Slavicists, including some of the top ones in the field, but I never heard back from them. All of these folks are extremely busy even at an advanced age and this is pretty much a book after all. They are always behind in their reading, preparing new papers, teaching, etc.
Mutual Intelligibility Among the Turkic Languages
A massive paper by Robert Lindsay on the study of mutual intelligibility of the Turkic languages, dispelling many myths and including language examples, historical considerations, and more – heartily recommended for any Turkologist or student of any Turkic language!
This paper was published as an 81 page chapter in The Handbook of Endangered Turkic Languages, Volume 1. There is a url of it in published form if you would like to it.
I haven’t got much other feedback from it except from a major Turkologist who said she really liked it. I was amazed.
A Turkologist whose work was quoted incorrectly was very angry at me for misquoting what she said. I am not a Turkologist myself so this stuff is going to happen. I tried to assuage her but she wasn’t having anything of it.
No one yet has written a book review on this book, nor has anyone commented on my re-do of Turkic, cumulatively adding 14 new languages and changing the classification a bit. The Wikipedia article about Turkic classification does not include mine. There is a chart at the end with my classification in it.
Just got a 3-day ban from Facebook for making this comment:
Trannies are mentally ill!
This violates Facebook’s code against hate speech. Can someone tell me what part of this comment is hate speech?
Is the world tranny hate speech? I thought it was just slang for transsexual. Is tranny a slur now? I can’t keep up with the ever-expanding list of words that get banned as slurs.
Is it hate speech to say transgender people are mentally ill? I am trying to figure out what I did wrong here. It was on a Marxist site.
There are some tranny morons on there, including a man who thinks he’s a woman. Most of the posters are extreme SJW Marxists who love transgender people for some crazy reason. It was probably a tranny who flagged the post. They were the worst SJW’s of them all, and they are profoundly censorious, always trying to bust people and get them in trouble for what people say.
Damn, I am getting banned from the whole Internet now.
Note: I just learned that tranny is a slur along the lines of faggot, etc.
Just to show how much I care about BS like that, I would like to say the following: Tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny tranny.

I really hate this pic and think it is ugly as sin, but women like it. A woman my age said, “Wow, no way is that a bad pic. You’re a really handsome man.” And an 19 year old girl, a friend of mine, just told me thought it looked good too. Also that my hands looked good, whatever that means.
Just having two dates in one day got my confidence so revved up that I was looking around for another woman to have brunch with the next day.
Three days later, I asked out a woman working in a supermarket, but she had a husband.
Four days later, I met an IT worker, a 27 year old Australian woman whose husband worked for Tesla in a coffee shop in Menlo Park. She said, “You don’t have a place to stay? How sad. You can come stay with my husband and me at our place. We will fix you dinner.”
Just as she said that one of my female cousins, a 55 year old woman, walked into the shop and took me away with her. I ended up spending the night at her place with her family. We pretty much grew up together, and she and my other two girl cousins were my best friends, like sisters. And they all taught me all about females.
My Mom had called my cousin and asked if I could stay there, and my cousin said sure. Then my Mom called me and told me I could stay at my cousin’s. Then she said,
“Now Bob! She has two teenage girls, one 17 and the other 15. I want you to be on your very best behavior around those girls! I don’t want to hear about any problems between you and those girls!” There weren’t any problems. Actually the 15 year old was extremely friendly, and I had never met her before.
That’s so funny. Even my own Mom knows what a perverted old bastard I am. I don’t have any preference for teenage girls of course anymore than any other man does. It’s just that a teenage girl isn’t a girl to me. The only things that are girls are those females under 13. 13-17, that’s more or less a woman, especially 15-17. To me a teenage girl is just another woman to me. A very, very young and silly woman, but a woman nonetheless. The JB’s especially are just way too young for me anymore. They almost seem like little girls, and most of them are very silly and childish.
I don’t think I would mess with a JB nowadays though. Guys my age have sex with a 16 year old girl, and they call them child molesters and sentence them to 10 years in prison where you probably get beat up as a chomo. I like to live dangerously, but I ain’t taking that risk.
You can download my first published work above. I was published for the first time this spring in a book called:
Before the Last Voices Are Gone: Endangered Turkic Languages, Volume 1: Theoretical and General Approaches
This is the first volume of a four volume set called:
The Handbook of Endangered Turkic Languages
The first volume alone runs to 512 pages. Articles are in English, Russian and Turkish, variably. It was published out of the International Turkish-Kazakh University in Istanbul, Turkey and the International Turkic Academy in Astana, Kazakhstan. These are two campuses that are part of one joint Turkey-Kazakhstan shared university.
I contributed one chapter that runs from pages 311-384 titled:
Mutual Intelligibility among the Turkic Languages
It’s 83 pages long and has ~100 references. It may have taken me 500 hours to write that chapter. Tell that to my enemies who claim I do not work, ok? When all is said and done, I figure I may make 75 cents an hour on this work. But this is how academic publishing works. There’s just no money in it. It’s all a labor of love. In addition, most work is done by professors who have to publish as part of their professorship (publish or perish), so in effect, their professor salary is covering their publishing.
That document had to go through two rather grueling peer reviews. I had to make many changes in it to get it to publication. The second peer review had to get past the top Turkologists in the world today, and I am amazed that I made it through review to be honest.
Most people publishing in academic books or journals are academics, professors working at universities. There are only a few of us independent scholars out there (I am an independent scholar because I am not at a university). Also most folks have PhD’s, and I only have a Masters, but there are some folks with Masters publishing academically.
In general, this is a rather selective game where everyone is hyperspecializing as is the trend nowadays. Although my mentor at the project calls me a Renaissance Man, I wonder if the autodidact/polymath is an endangered species if not extinct. Everyone has to specialize nowadays.
For instance, common knowledge in this particular field would be that the only folks who could publish in Turkology would be linguists with a PhD in Linguistics, preferably with a emphasis in Turkology. Beyond that, they may prefer say 5-10 years publishing in the field of Turkology in addition to a professorship in Turkic linguistics. You can see where this is headed. I am not knocking it. I am just pointing out that microspecialization is the game now.
What follows is that since I lack the PhD or professorship or any background at all in Turkology, I should not be allowed to be published in this field, or if by some error I am somehow mispublished, all of my work should be promptly ignored as done by a nonspecialist who could not possibly know what he is talking about. Needless to say, I don’t agree with that, and I carry on tilting at windmills like a good deluded Renaissance Man who never got the memo and wouldn’t read it if he did.
The odd thing is that I knew nothing about Turkology until I plunged into this mess. I had written a short piece of mutual intelligibility in Turkic, as MI is one of my pet subjects and put it up on Academia on my scholarly papers site, and a professor in Turkey happened to read it. He wrote to me telling me he agreed with me, he wanted me to expand it into a document, and they would publish it for me. So off I went, down the Turkic rabbit hole. If you study the very high IQ types (140+), they tend to go on “crazes” like this. They also lose interest after a bit, drop the craze and move on to some new craze. Dilettantism for the win.
I also have an anxiety disorder called OCD which is well controlled. A good side of it though is that you tend to do dive down rabbit holes a lot, and the OCD makes you burrow maniacally into the rabbit hole with the notion that one is going to become the world’s leading expert on whatever rabbit hole you are digging in now. So for one or two years, I went absolutely berserk into Turkic, whereas before I scarcely knew a thing about it. The end result can be read above.
The sad result is that either due to the savant stuff or the mental quirk, I also tend to lose interest in my rabbit holes after a bit. I follow them about halfway to China, make several revolutions around the molten core, and after a year or so, come up for air gasping with incipient Black Lung, and next thing you know, I am bored, and it’s onto a new craze. It’s a bit silly, but we all have our crosses to lug, and as eccentricities go, there are many worse things that dabbling, er hobbyism, er dilettantism, er polymathy, er autodidactism, er Renaissance Manism.
Most of you will probably not find this very interesting, as it is pretty specialized stuff that is mostly of interest to people in the specialty, linguists and those interested in the subject. It’s not exactly for the general reader. But if you have any interest in these languages, you might enjoy it.
I expanded Turkic from 41 to 53 languages, eliminated some languages, turned some into dialects, turned some dialects into full languages, combined languages into a single tongue, created some new languages out of scratch and did quite a bit of work on the history of the languages.
I also reworked the classification a bit because I thought it could be done better. Even though this work does not pay much, the pay is in fame if it is at all. My work will either be accepted by the field or rejected outright or somewhere in between. I have already earned the praises of some of the world’s top Turkologists, much to my surprise. If I get fame, well, I get quoted in papers, maybe invited to conferences, and maybe even referenced in Wikipedia. There are groupies in all status fields, and what the heck, there may even be linguist groupies. If not, there are always starry eyed coeds dreaming of professor types to mentor them. I am already working that angle as it is. Writer Game, Scholar Game, there’s Game for everything.
Or my work does not go over and maybe the field decides I do not know what I am talking about.
Crap shoot, like most of life’s endeavors. Roll em, and wish upon a star…snake eyes!
PS. The title of the series, Before the Last Voices Are Gone, was created by me. I think it has a nice little song.
I am sort of getting tired of answering questions about my employment that I get from haters every day. Here is a statement on the matter from another site a while back.
I live off a trust fund, and I also work as a therapist. I make some money writing and I do a few other things like brokering deals between consultants and clients, things like that. The reason I do not work is due to health. I am not in good enough health to work. Otherwise I have been working or in school my whole life. My last job title was Linguist/Cultural Anthropologist.
I do not use any government programs, so I am mystified at people always saying I am on welfare or collect a government check. I have no idea where they came up with that idea.
Here are my income sources in the last year or so:
Trust fund. Had $700,000 at the start, but now it is a lot less. It is a spendthrift trust, so I am locked out of it. They have always given me right around a poverty level wage only because my grandfather wanted me to survive but he also wanted to force me to work, so he made it small enough so I could survive but would not live comfortably. The idea was to force me to work because he did not want me kicking back my whole life as a trust fund kid. It was made spendthrift because he figured that if I had control over it, I would blow through the thing in a few years as I was a bit of a spendthrift, party boy and playboy as a young man. Counseling. Peer counselor. I focus mostly on one condition, a DSM anxiety disorder, which, frankly, I am an expert on. I work with clients all over the world, mostly in the US but also in Chile, El Salvador, Canada, Australia, the UK, Ireland, Germany, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, Spain, and Switzerland. I also work with problems in living, deep stuff (exploring your deep self or childhood issues) and growth stuff (learning how to grow to become a better and more functional human being).
People often break down in tears and start crying right in the middle of sessions. Happens all the time. I deal with suicidal people all the time. In fact, I lost one client to suicide already. I have had clients who were attempting suicide while I was working with them. It can be hard to deal with. I have no degrees, credentials or licenses in this field, but in California, you do not need one. Just hang out your shingle and call yourself “Counselor” and say come talk to me about your problems. I do not get a lot of business, but I do get some. Considering that I lack all of the things you usually need to do this work, I am amazed that I get any work at all.
I read a lot of books on this subject and I have been studying psychology for 40 years. I had decades of therapy. I read up on counseling psychology and mental illness all the time so I am pretty much self-taught. You would be amazed how many jobs you can do simply by teaching yourself how to do them. It’s a myth that you need degrees, credentials,. etc. to do this or that job. Just teach yourself.
The longer I do this, the better I get at it. It is a stressful job though. I do one 1 hour session and I feel like I just ran a mile. I sometimes have to go lie down. The clients are in so much psychic pain that it seems to leak out of them and into my body. If you are empathetic at all this is going to happen. Brokering deals between graphic artists and clients. I put the clients and artists together, negotiate prices, etc. and then take a cut for myself. Conflict resolution/arbitration. In cases of graphic artists and clients where they have come to a standstill and nothing is getting done. An example: client has spent $~1,000 and is not satisfied with the product. Artist has stopped speaking to the client or returning his phone calls or emails. Client sent work back for endless revisions, and eventually the artist just had it. I wade in there, talk to both sides, figure out the nature of the dispute and try to settle the matter so that everyone is happy. I am actually quite good at this. Webpage design/graphics. Mostly graphics. Working with graphics for people who need websites done. Work with graphic artists. Graphics editor for books. I was recently a graphics editor for a book. I was in charge of maps. I worked with a graphic artist and told him what to label the areas and where to shade in the areas we needed to shade in. We used a lot of sources, all of which were wrong. It was a great big mess, but it was fun to put together the jigsaw puzzle. Webpage design consulting. Consult with webpage designers who are having problems with their pages to fix their issues. Selling information. As crazy as it sounds, I have actually made money doing that. I have some pretty much secret information about a few things that a lot of people want but few people have access to. An example would be a geographical location of an unusual place that a lot of people want to get to, but the location is a closely guarded secret. So I ell directions to this location and then work with them afterwards to help them reach the site, etc. Yes, you can actually sell information! Isn’t that crazy? Medical counseling. Work with heterosexual men who are worried that they have contracted HIV from sexual contact with women. I am an expert on this type of transmission and have been studying it for over 30 years now. I know more about it than most physicians.
They tell me the situation, and I lay out the odds that they may have contracted the disease based on their situation. I also tell them how HIV is acquired from women and tell them about the various surveys that have been done. I also have a lot of percentages, facts and figures about this type of transmission, like say 1% chance after 40 encounters. I tell them about all the different types of testing, the accuracy, etc. Then I follow them through any tests that they need to take in the next few months. And if they have anxiety or obsessive issues about possibly contracting this illness, I work with them on that, as I am very good at calming down or talking down people who are in the midst of anxiety episodes. I do it all the time. Author. Just published my first book, or chapter in a book I should say. It is an 80 page chapter. I am supposed to be paid for this at some point. Book was published in Turkey in a university press. Took me 500 hours or three months work at part time. I worked with professors from all over the world on this project. I also had to go through two rather brutal peer reviews. I also came up with the name for this book series, but I was not paid for that. Sell advertisements. I have made a bit of money selling ads on this site, but honestly it has been very little.
That’s it. I am always looking for new ways to get money though. I wake up every morning and think, “How am I going to get some money today?”
I became ill 21 years ago and have not worked at a regular job since. If I did not have the trust, I would try for Disability. Before I got ill, I was always either working or in college or both. There was never a time when I was doing neither. If you enjoy the hard work that goes into this website, please consider a contribution to support the continuation of the site.

What could be worse than being insulted by Indian ultranationalists and Hindutwadis? One shudders to think!
Let’s see what they called me: chutiya?, White Supremacist, degenerate Hindu hater (RL: Thank you), huge faggot, Lundsay?, toxic person, skinny, formerly homeless, degenerate fag, and maderchod?.
Robert Lindsay is a White American and a degenerate Hindu hater. He will take any opportunity to bash Indians and Hindus. He’s essentially an Abrahamic supremacist.
Thank you for the kind words, sir.
He is definitely a huge faggot. A Randian once posted Lundsay’s blog on r/india, saying that we must not look at those “harsh words” and rather self-reflect. Self-reflect, my ass.
Try it some time for once.
Lol, I remember sending multiple email death threats to Robert when I was pissed off reading his anti-India posts. He bans people from his blog for disagreeing with him, perfect twat to become a Randian mod. I was 17 back then. I never had encountered such a toxic person.
Why thank you.
He’s a skinny white 50 year old who used to be homeless, who cares what that degenerate fag thinks? Indeed.
Who the Fuck is this Lindsay? The hater is right about the shitting though. It’s a fucking deep cultural malaise. I have traveled to piss poor countries and even they don’t have this massive problem of shitting on the roads or indeed stuff like absolutely disrespecting road rules and all that.
Minorities cannot even construct a cerebral blog like Robert Lindsay’s and while most of his contributors probably have an IQ lower than his I would say most of us contributors are in the 120 range.
Surely there are some minorities who could write a blog like this or could at least write a brainy blog. Socially Extinct is a Mexican-American, a pretty full mestizo, and he is incredibly smart. I actually worry that he is a better writer than I am. And I also worry that he’s smarter than I am.
Jayman is Black and has a very brainy blog. I dislike Abagond the antiracist Black, but that man is smart as Hell. There are some damn smart NAM’s out there, make no mistake about it. I believe there are 500,000 US Blacks with IQ’s above 125. With Hispanics, the number must be even higher. I am thinking 1.2 million? There may be 6 million Whites with IQ’s that high, but there are more White people. Keep that in mind.
There are a lot of smart fuckers on here all right. I don’t know what their IQ’s are, but I know they are smart as Hell. The few IQ scores we have of frequent recent commenters:
So the median IQ is 118, or let’s call it 120. That is the top 10% of the population of the 90th percentile.
Some of you slackers have not turned in your scores yet, so you need to get to it. Alpha hates the idea of IQ, and I believe, like Tulio, she doesn’t think hers is all that high, but Alpha is wicked smart. I know this because I have access to her locked personal blog. Every time I go over there, I almost get knocked on my ass by her brains or genius or whatever it is.
Some others are insecure about their scores. Matt with IQ of apparently 115 seems to worry that it is too low, but the funny thing is that Matt seems like one of the most wickedly smart commenters on here. Tulio has confessed that he feels stupid and thinks he has a low IQ at 124, but he’s in the 93nd percentile for Chrissake, and right now, Tulio has probably the highest IQ of any of the regular commenters.
The performance of Matt shows us that we should not place too much faith in a simple number or score. Matt’s performance shows us that if you have an IQ in the 80th percentile, you can probably do all sorts of things, and further you can seem wickedly smart. I am wondering if guys like Matt and Tulio are high verbal and lower in mathematics, which might explain their “performance above IQ.”
Jim Flynn wrote a whole book on “Performance Above IQ” where he showed that Chinese-Americans and Japanese-Americans were performing at jobs and showed a job performance that was 10-20 points above their actual IQ’s. So maybe it is not just IQ, but it is also what you do with it and what else (extra-IQ factors) that you can bring to the table that will “raise” your IQ effectively or de facto if not in realis. Realis is your number. De facto is your actual performance in the real world. At the end of the day, only de facto is what matters, let’s face it. Performance is everything, potential is nice, but it’s talking the talk whereas performance is walking the walk.
So it looks like the average commenter is in the 118, which means they are in the top 16% of the population or in the upper 84th percentile. If you are beating 8 out of 10 of the competition, you are doing great. If you are beating over 9 out of 10 of the population, you are kicking ass.
We do have some higher IQ commenters on here, but they don’t comment all that much.
I used to have some lower IQ commenters on here, and some of them were damn good. One has a 94 IQ, but he understood well and made some damn good comments, however lately he says that he can’t understand what I am talking about.
I am actually trying to write this stuff so that the majority of the population can understand it.
Yes, there is all sorts of higher level stuff running all through my posts, but it’s not necessary to know all of that stuff. Those are references to movies, TV shows, famous remarks, nicknames, music lyrics, books, lines from books, famous people of all sorts, on and on. I litter my stuff with all sorts of winking references.
I don’t expect you to get all of them because that’s not my intent, but I expect if you find some of that stuff, you may enjoy a bit of a slow, nodding, knowing and loving smile. Sort of like a secret language. Those references are scattered through there more as a big game than anything else. I am just playing games with words and screwing around, and if anyone gets it, great, but if they don’t, so what? Sort of like those Easter eggs that some software used to have in them.
I am not trying to show that I am smarter than anyone or especially my commenters, more like how I said, it is all sort of a big game where I am playing around with words and ideas, sort of like a big subtle brainy joke.
Here. Moral Inversion and Cultural Liberalism and Me.
This is one of the best posts ever written about me and this site, and it’s written by a hard rightwinger who writes for Breitbart!
But it’s a very nice column and sums up in a few paragraphs a lot of the weirdness involved in this site such that probably 90% of the people who are talking about it are getting it completely wrong somehow. But maybe that was the idea in the first place. Sort of a poststructural experiment to make nine out of ten people think the site is something that it’s not.
The site used to have the motto, “If I’m not making you mad, I’m not doing my job.” I like that, and it also sums up what is going on here. I’m a provocateur. The site’s all about me being a provocateur along with a lot of shitposting and sensible senselessness.
He quotes from an old post of mine:
Since when is chastity a sin or a sign of failure as a human being anyway? Sluts and players perch on the top of the moral pyramid while the chaste and true wallow in Hellish boiling mud below. Talk about inversions. We have truly turned morality upside down and made morals of sins and sinners of the good.
And it’s true that the way I lived my life, while I am proud of it, isn’t exactly optimal for society. In fact, a lot of society’s problems are due to too many people living like I did and not enough people showing some degree of moral probity.
This is exactly what we liberals on the Cultural Left have done. Chastity is now a sin! Can you believe it? I know a young woman. I met her when she was a 19 year old college girl and we are still very good friends. At the time, she was down about a lot of things, but one thing she was really down about was that she was still a virgin. She felt that she was a loser and a complete failure for still being a female virgin at age 19! So what! So you’re a 19 year old virgin? What’s wrong with that?
Do you see what the Hell we on the Left have done? We have actually flipped morality upside down just like Sade does in his wicked books. No good deed shall go unpunished, like in Justine! We have told this poor 19 year old college girl that she’s evil, a scum, a worthless person, a loser, an idiot, an idiot and most especially that she’s a bad person. Get that? She’s a bad person because she dared to retain her virginity until the late age of 19! Crazy.
Meanwhile some gay teenage boy who at age 19 has already racked up 100 cocks up the ass and a multiple-strain case of virulent HIV is the greatest guy on Earth. All hail King Bungholio! He’s practically Mother Theresa. Why? Because he is fighting against the evil of prudery, chastity, probity, decency, monogamy, cautiousness, guilt, neurosis and honor. Honor bad! Suicidal libertinism good!
Sade must be smiling in his grave.
I started realizing this back in the 1970’s when people used to write in to sex magazines saying that they had sexual hangups or that they were still a virgin or whatever. Xaviera Hollander (Jew) and other moral paragons would lambast these poor conflicted souls. Sexual hangups were evil! Prudery was evil! Virgins were evil scum! Get out there and fuck 100 new people right now! Just to prove how pure and right you are.
The Cultural Left does this all the time.
Here we are at the Folsom Street Parade in San Francisco.
There is a homosexual man over there getting pissed on by several leather clad gay men forming a circle around him. The urine covers his face, his hair, his body. He opens his mouth to wallow further, relishing the tart piss in his mouth as he swallows again and again. See Robert Lindsay over there, cringing as this homosexual gets a five man golden shower in public at a public parade where single Moms bring their little children? He’s a bad person! Lindsay is evil! Because being morally offended at this site is evil. And cheering it on as an act of charity and benevolence is good.
See that homosexual walking down the parade with pink panties? He has a dildo strapped on to his crotch. He periodically jerks it up and down to the cheers of the crowd. The men cheer. The single women cheer. The little kids cheer. In doing this act, this man is showing us mercy and grace. See Jose over there from Argentina? He’s grotesquely offended, turning his head, nauseous. Jose is evil. He’s a bad person. He’s like a criminal, a scumbag, for being repulsed by Father Theresa with the holy dildo.
See that open window? See that naked homosexual sticking his ass out the window? See the dildo in his hand? Ok, you know what comes next. The crowd of good Samaritans oohs and ahhs in anticipation. The dildo swings around, enters the man’s ass, and begins pumping hard up and down in the guy’s ass. The crowd goes wild! Such an act of grace, of selflessness, of duty unto God! See Tulio over there yelling? “It’s a public parade man! That’s gross! You queers are sick!” Tulio is bad. He’s no good. He’s a a lowlife, on the level of pond scum. Why? Because he was revolted at this grown up altar boy’s good acts. Acts above faith you know.
We have actually turned everything upside down. Good is bad! Bad is good! Sin is purity! Morals are transgressions!
I would also argue that although I have had fun in my life, part of the problem with society is too damn many people lived their lives carelessly and frivolously like I lived mine, filling it up with promiscuous sex, booze, endless parties, every drug known to man, avoidance of marriage and children, and general debauchery, degeneracy and even depravity.
Sure it was fun, but look at the results. The middle class adopted the counterculture and moved to Marin in middle age to practice yoga and save the whales. The underclass adopted the counterculture and created Detroit and Baltimore.
We were wrong. We blew it. We screwed up. Turn on, tune in and drop out was a lie. Feed your head was stupid. Look at the results. All around you, the walking detritus. We on the Left need to take some responsibility for some of the serious downside to the moral collapse we advocated.
Stranahan then quotes Breitbart. Now I hated Breitbart, but this line of his is pure gold, singing off the page:
Breitbart said he liked the Left for parties and music. He just didn’t want them running things.
And this is why the Left won the Culture War. The Right adopted the Cultural Left as lifestyles and values while retaining conservatism in government, business, politics and a few other things.
Ok, the Left won the Culture War. But what did we win?
Detroit? Baltimore? Juggalos? The Folsom Street Parade? Kaitlyn Jenner? Kim Kardashian? The Oxycontin epidemic? Gardisil injections for 12 year old girls? Heather Has Two Mommies? Microaggressions? Noel Ignatiev? Sanctuary cities? Omar Mateen in Orlando? Vietnam 1968 in Chicago every weekend? A mass shooting a day? Genderqueer? Pansexuality? Amanda Marcotte? Press one for English? Anchor babies? Birth tourism? Pegging? Grindr? White privelege?
What’s that, the booby prize?
We thought we were creating a Cultural Utopia, but sometimes I think we accidentally created a Cultural AIDS epidemic instead, just as the homosexuals made the AIDS epidemic with their heedless debauchery 30-40 years ago.
Maybe grandma was right and the wages of sin are decline and eventual collapse. It’s the wisdom of ancients, so maybe there is something to it?
Anyway, some ideological transgressions here for you to ponder…
Phil is a new commenter, a young Black male who has been talking to me about various issues around race, race realism and possible ways forward for the Black race, which we must acknowledge has some issues. Phil’s project is to try to come up with system(s) that will reduce pathology among the Black race.
You might want to head on over there and partake in the discussion.
In this interview, Karlin discusses my proposal for an Alternative Left which would be Left on economics and socially conservative or at least negotiable and sane on the Cultural Left. It would be for everyone who supports Left politics but its turned off by Identity politics and the SJW PC crowd. I would think there would be a lot of people out there who would support such a thing.

Robert, I appreciate this is a big topic for you, but you keep doing these super long posts that are harder and harder to digest! Please make a few post you your own with some points!
It really is best to see this site as a newspaper or newsmagazine. I am mostly concerned with traffic now as I am finally selling some ads. Do you read every article in the New York Times? Do you read every article in a newsmagazine?
I eventually want this site to be something like that. It’s already at the point where I do not expect you to read everything that is up here. Pretend that Beyond Highbrow is the New York Times.
Dota and Bay Area Guy are former commenters at Robert Lindsay who went off to form their own site. May we spawn many more such Lindsaybabies! Many more! Forever more! I always liked Dota, even if he is more conservative than I am. You can’t expect everyone to be your political clone. Then you won’t have any friends. I don’t even know what national capitalism is. But if that’s what the Chinese are up to, I do not mind it at all actually.
I don’t really mind Paleocons. I will take a dozen Paleocons over one leftwing PC SJW. I am somewhat embarassed that American Conservative resonates with me. Nevertheless, I am not really a conservative in any way, shape or form. Even social conservatism doesn’t resonate with me in any way, shape or form. Nor am I much on the Left anymore. Nor am I a mushy Centrist invertebrate. What am I? Alternative Left maybe?
I just did a new interview with Robert Stark. I think you will like it. It goes over a lot of pretty important subjects. The sound quality should be much better on this one. Stark now does interviews straight over the phone. The sound quality is much better than it was with Skype. The poor sound quality of previous interviews was entirely the fault of Skype.
Here are the topics:
This photo of the now famous Hadar Goldin was published on this site before it was published on any other news site. It was very hard to find. After a lot of snooping around, I finally found it on some obscure Facebook page. Very soon after I published it, the excellent Israeli site Debka published it too. Debka was the first large news site to publish it other than this measly blog. I then went to sleep, satisfied with having scooped the whole damn world. When I woke up, I went online. There was that photo I had dredged up, appearing on sites all over the Net, mostly Israeli sites.
Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray! Hooray for Beyond Highbrow!
You guys wonder why you even read this site. Beyond Highbrow scoops the whole damn world, dammit! Get with the program. Read Beyond Highbrow today. Better yet, make a donation. Wink wink.
The following is an abstract of a long paper that will be published in one of three or four books of the series The Handbook of Endangered Turkic Languages which will be published in late September by the Turkish-Kazakh Joint University in Ankara, Turkey. The article is 88 pages along and is one of the most important articles in the series. I will also be the official English editor for all of the English articles in the series which total ~500 pages.
Mutual Intelligibility Among the Turkic Languages
By Robert Lindsay
Abstract:The Turkic family of languages with all important related dialects was analyzed on the basis of mutual intelligibility, with the following goals: (1) To determine the extent to which various Turkic lects can understand each other. (2) To ascertain whether various Turkic lects are better characterized as full languages in the own right in need of ISO codes from SIL or rather as dialects of another language. (3) The history of various Turkic lects was analyzed in an attempt to write a proper history of the important lects. (4) An attempt was made at classifying the Turkic languages in terms of subfamilies, sub-sub families, etc. The results were: (1) Rough intelligibility figures for various Turkic lects, related lects and Turkish itself were determined. Surprisingly, it was not difficult to arrive at these rough estimates. (2) The Turkic family was expanded from Ethnologue‘s 41 languages to 53 languages. (3) Full and detailed histories for many Turkic lects were written up in a coherent, easy to understand way, a task sorely needed in Turkic as histories of Turkic lects are often confused, inaccurate, controversial, and incomplete. (4) A new classification of Turkic is proposed that rejects and rewrites some of the better-known classifications.
Give us a breakdown. Is it spread out quite evenly over a large number of articles found by Google search? Are there a small number of articles that get most hits? How many hits does each new post get? How does it breakdown by topic? Etc. this would be interesting to know.
