Handgun Myths and Personal Security

When people comment on some news story about yet another instance of assault on the street -- robbery, murder, or what-not -- I commonly see expressions of gravely flawed thinking. The comment will be some form of "She should have had a gun, problem solved."

The problem with such thinking is that a gun does not protect you. A gun is a tool for self defense. Someone (you) has to use the tool.

Carrying a gun in your pocket, purse, or automobile does not create a force field that evil cannot penetrate. Even having a gun in your hand and waving it around like a can of insecticide doesn't give you the magical power to make an attacker submit. An experienced attacker can take a gun away from an inexperienced victim with little difficulty.

Those making these impulsive comments on news stories have no training and no experience in hand-to-hand combat, and they are spreading misconceptions that will hurt good people. The topic of personal security is broad and deep. Let me offer a few insights that can guide you toward a sound understanding of the problems and solutions.

1. The foundation of personal security is situational awareness: you need to know what's going on around you. When you avoid a certain shopping area because it seems a little unsafe, you're using situational awareness. Likewise if you notice some males sitting in a parked car. Your mind is the primary tool for self-defense, and other tools will fail without it.

2. You cannot use a weapon that isn't in your hand. If a mugger holds a gun on you before you can draw yours (probably because you failed in your situational awareness), he will probably take your money and the gun that you're carrying. Likewise with any knife or pepper spray that you were counting on. To defend yourself, you need to be able to deploy your weapon effectively. Ladies, if a rapist gets close enough to you to break your jaw, that cute pink gun in your purse will be small consolation.

3. It's hard to place a shot well with a handgun. It takes practice.

4. Lethal force isn't always justified. If a guy picks your pocket and runs off with your wallet, you cannot shoot him.

5. If you brandish a gun without legal justification, you'll pay.

6. Every round that comes out of the tube has a lawyer attached to it. If you misuse lethal force, you can be bankrupted and sent to prison.

Therefore I offer two suggestions:

1. Search the Internet for handgun training in your locale, such as handgun training waycross georgia.

2. Buy and study this book.

Free White Paper: Becoming Better Educated

Choose a file to download, either Rich Text Format, Word, or Open Document (LibreOffice).

This white paper is intended for an adult American who has no college degree, or who, having one, nevertheless senses a poverty of real education. It consists of three parts. The first presents information about tools and sources. The second presents a curriculum of sorts that will plug gaps and greatly improve a person’s knowledge and understanding of “the liberal arts.” The third section contains my brief recommendations regarding general education for adults who wish to wade into sustained courses of study in various subjects. Each of these three sections stands on its own and could be read profitably without the other two.

I write for white Americans who want to know their heritage. Although much of this paper might help a nonwhite reader, his needs and interests are distinct from ours, and only someone dedicated to a nonwhite’s particular culture will be able to address his needs as strategically as I have done here for my own people.

I Can Prove the Existence of God


People talk about God a lot. They often talk about proving things. They seldom define their terms. That's one reason why they talk so much. If they knew what their terms meant, they'd have a lot less to say.

"Proof" means various things, depending upon the situation. In mathematics the standards are very high. In a medical exam for a life insurance policy, the standards are pretty low. We used to say in the sales department, "If he can fog a mirror, we'll get him covered one way or another." Proof of insurability was pretty easy to claim.

Suppose I walk into my home with a friend and announce "Someone has been in here" and he asks "How do you know?" If I say "That light is on; I always turn it off," he might reply "That doesn't prove anything; anyone can forget to turn off a light." The burning light proves something to me because I know my habits of life. It proves nothing to my friend.

Proving the existence of God is easy. The philosopher John Locke pointed out the obvious fact that "matter cannot put sense into itself." Since everything in nature is permeated with intelligence, someone with infinite intelligence must be the cause. Otherwise, you are left defining hydrogen (the simplest element, one proton and one electron) as "an odorless, colorless gas which, over time, becomes scientists."

This, however, proves nothing to someone who wishes to deny it. He can watch a spider build a web and believe that the spider and her ability to spin six kinds of silk and to engineer that web came into being through fortuitous random mutations (lucky birth defects) and natural selection over millions of years. Likewise he can watch a hummingbird beating its wings at the rate of fifty times per second in a figure-eight pattern, hovering perfectly, and believe that it came into being through random mutations and natural selection.

If the intelligence we see all around us doesn't prove the existence of God, what would?

I heard one college student respond, "If God were to appear before me, right here and now, that would prove it." He's wrong, though. As a comparison: if I saw a pink elephant appear in my living room, I wouldn't start believing in pink elephants. Instead, I'd believe that I was hallucinating. A disbeliever in God isn't basing it on observation. If he were, a hummingbird would suffice to convert him.

I can prove the existence of God to someone who accepts my premises (e.g., matter cannot put sense into itself). But if he rejects my premises, saying "Oh no, matter can become intelligent if it has enough time," then he is beyond proof.

I have known of three atheist philosophers who became Christians; two I knew personally. In none of the three cases did any of them convert because of logical, philosophical proofs. In each case it was because he became tired of his sin and guilt. When he quit fighting and surrendered to God, the truth came rushing in upon him.

Beginning Internet Security and Privacy

"They hate you and they want you dead, but they will settle for your submission." Hence this post.

Security and privacy differ. Think of security as locking your doors and privacy as not disclosing your address. An attacker cannot kick in your door if he doesn't know where you live. You should take what measures you can to improve both security and privacy.

A lot of content is available on the Internet regarding these two topics, so it can be overwhelming. This post will not overwhelm you. Following these suggestions will improve your protection against those who wish to destroy you.

1. Use a password manager. A password manager memorizes all of your passwords and fills them in for you when you want to log in to a web site. If you don't use a password manager, you will either use the same password everywhere, or you will use dumb passwords that are easy to memorize, varying them slightly from one website to another. Either choice is trivial for an evildoer to overcome. (Don't believe me? Search for "you need a password manager.")

Your browser probably includes a password manager and offers to remember your passwords. That's pretty good, but you need to allow it to also generate strong passwords like h:N:$@Xlx'Hi9Y instead of something you think up like "Fluffy2021."

Go through all of your logins and change them to strong passwords, different for every site, memorized in your password manager. This requires time. I had to visit over 100 sites and change my login credentials, which usually included confirming the new credentials via email or text.

Back up your passwords by whatever method you prefer. You might use the "sync" function of your browser or you could export the data to a USB flash drive or an online storage site. (You absolutely must back up your passwords. If you're saving them elsewhere, you can encrypt the file by exporting it into a word processor and saving it with a password. Just write the password down where you can't lose it!)

Once you have done this, you have addressed the most important vulnerability of today's Internet. There are definitely better password managers and better ways to use them, but the most important thing is to get started now, not to delay while trying to find and understand a manager that would defeat the NSA. You can always move your passwords to a new manager if you decide to upgrade.

2. Install uBlock Origin. Your browser probably offers this as a plugin.

3. Stop searching with Google. The problems with Google are many and deep. Just leave. I prefer Duck Duck Go, despite the fact that they have plenty of problems of their own. Your browser gives you a choice for a default search engine, so choose something other than Google.

4. Use a VPN. A virtual private network service allows you to route your internet traffic through their servers so that the sites you contact cannot see your IP address. There are bad VPN services out there, so choose carefully. A couple of highly rated ones are Mullvad and Windscribe. Your browser may offer various VPNs as plugins; choose wisely.

5. Avoid Faceberg. Everybody knows by now that Facebook is Orwell on steroids, right? Say very little of a personal nature on Facebook. If you say of a politician "This guy needs to go!" and he gets assassinated the next day, you can bet that Big Data has your number and the FBI will get that info immediately. True, you're in no ultimate danger, but do you really want to be explaining yourself to men with badges? Avoid Faceberg.

Meanwhile, when you do have to use Faceberg, note that Firefox has a feature called "containers" which can isolate something from the rest of the browser. Give FB its own container to minimize its spying.

Other tips. It's a struggle to stop talking/writing about security :-)

Proper security measures are gauged according to your risk profile. For instance, you lock your doors before going to bed, but you don't hire a security guard to patrol your property while you sleep. But a Prime Minister or a boss of organized crime (did I repeat myself?) does have security guards while he sleeps; he has a higher risk profile.

In the above paragraphs, I have given simple and easy things to do, but there are other valuable things to consider.

What would happen if you lost your phone and some bum found it and sold it (wholesale) to a technician? What could he find before he resells your phone? If your phone is encrypted, he finds nothing.

If you lose your laptop, or a burglar steals your desktop, what could a technician find? Search for "full disk encryption" as protection in such a case.

Consider having your browser clear your cookies at the end of each session. I do that and it causes very little inconvenience.

Encrypted email services are probably overkill. (1) Your correspondent has to be using the same encryption, which means that 99% of your email traffic will remain unencrypted. (2) The email headers have to remain unencrypted so that all of the computers that transport the message can see where it came from and where it's going; so snoops can see who's talking to whom.

For those rare cases when you need encryption, you and your correspondents might decide to use Tox, Telegram, Signal, or Session. (Facebook also offers Whatsapp, and it's totally free! Hahahahahahahahahahah!)

In sum, there are sick twisted freaks out there who have (1) deep understanding of Internet sleuthing and (2) a fierce hatred of Trump, nationalism, biblical authority, and the continued existence of the white race (10% of the world's population). These sickos spend countless hours scanning the Internet, identifying people they'd like to destroy, and working to slander and doxx them into oblivion.

To respond properly: (1) avoid doing or encouraging anything illegal; (2) assume that anything you write on the Internet (including email) is read by people who hate you and want you dead; (3) assume that you will be identified, despite any false identity you use to delay it; and (4) minimize your exposure by using good security and privacy measures.

Parody: Slip Biden Away

Inspired by Paul Simon's "Slip Sliding Away"

SLIP BIDEN AWAY

Slip Biden away, slip Biden away
Far and near across the nation
They wanna slip Biden away

I know a preacher man
Instead of walking, he prefers to crawl
He wears his guilt for being white
Like it was a prayer shawl
He says "Deplorables,
We still might be saved;
We could enthrone us a Jamaican
If only they'll slip Biden away."

Slip Biden away, slip Biden away
We got a chance at salvation
If only they'd slip Biden away

I know a woman
She blames Trump for her weight
She's as crazy as a bedbug
And her husband hopped a freight
She lives on welfare
Watches TV all day
She feels a sisterhood with Harris
And she's hopin' they'll slip Biden away

Slip Biden away, slip Biden away
Yeah she believes she could get movin'
If only they'd slip Biden away

The dementia is real
The Dems have their plan
I see a female commie bipoc
With a knife in her hand
She worked her way up from the bottom
She knows it's time for her pay
He may not see it when it's comin'
But they're gonna slip Biden away

Slip Biden away, slip Biden away
Now that they've snagged the election
They're gonna slip Biden away

Slip Biden away, slip Biden away
You know, it's the queerest situation
They're gonna slip Biden away

Storming the Capitol: A Blunder

An old quotation of uncertain origin spoke of a certain political execution as "worse than a crime, a blunder" (which is merely an attempt to be cute; a mistake could never be considered worse than a sin). Multitudes are decrying the riot at the Capitol as a crime. Very few are seeing it clearly. It was, above all, a blunder. Its fallout is beyond calculation.

A lot of video footage was recorded. The rally at which Trump and Giuliani spoke was tame. The crowd was peaceful and sensible. Unquestionably their intentions were honorable as they proceeded to the Capitol. But some bad actors decided to defy the barricades which were manned by the Capitol police and they violently struggled, breached the barrier, and flooded to the Capitol building, drawing others in their train. Then mob psychology took over. Large numbers crowded the steps and porches, stupidly thinking that they were going to intimidate the Congresscritters to "stop the steal."

The police tried to drive them off with tear gas, but the high winds rendered the tactic ineffective. I suppose that this emboldened the protestors even more. Not just the strongest man in the world, but even God himself was apparently on their side.

They got in and behaved very badly (although it could have been much worse). The Capitol police, overwhelmed, were in danger--how much danger, they couldn't know--and they were responsible for protecting the Congresscritters. The mob attacked the door to the Speakers Lobby and were smashing their way through when a cop fired once and killed Ashli Babbitt. They quit smashing after that.

A mob is a well-known phenomenon in human history. There's nothing modern about it, nothing new, and therefore nothing surprising about January 6th, 2021. Another thing that is well-known is the vicious mendacity of the mainstream media. Also well-known is the statistical probability that the crowd would include a few delusional lunatics who came to the event with the intent of staging an armed insurrection, such as the guy with the Molotov cocktails in his truck and perhaps the one photographed with the zip-tie handcuffs.

Trump was oblivious of it all. Instead of carefully warning and instructing his crowd, he proceeded as if nothing could go wrong.

As I write, rats are scurrying for cover. Not the protestors, I say, but professional politicians who are trying to get ahead of the aftershocks. One after another is calling for impeachment of the President, who is leaving office in ten days. Plainly, they are just making mouth noises for effect. A number of staffers are resigning, another virtue-signaling gesture without substance. The news media, never averse to using words in violation of their meanings, are shrieking about "insurrection" and "coup." They do it, of course, because it works.

The dissident movement which saw in Trump a possibility of stopping our national suicide made its first colossal blunder in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017. Although the protestors, generally, were prepared to be attacked by a Communist mob (as had happened previously in places like Sacramento, California), the movement didn't anticipate that the police would stand by and permit the attack (and even block the protestors' escape route so that they had to pass through the mob) and that the news media would report the event exactly backwards, as though the protestors had attacked the Communists, and that they could make the story stick. But the media did make the story stick, and the lies about that event are now the official party line which no one may contradict. Because the rally organizers never saw it coming and, for whatever reason, were not able to regain control of the narrative, Charlottesville was a blunder of incalculable loss.

But whatever the cost of that blunder, it cannot approach what we have suffered from this one. I hope that we can recover, but God must be with us if that is to happen. These blunders tempt me to doubt. Enoch Powell, in his famous "Rivers of Blood" speech, quoted an ancient Greek proverb: Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad. How deep and wide our current national madness is remains to be seen, but the prospects are not encouraging.

An Italian Told Me About Mussolini Today

I met an Italian immigrant today.  He appeared to be about forty years old. We chatted about our respective countries and he told me that he knew about the South because he had seen a movie about it.  He knew all about racism and discrimination.

I gently protested that he shouldn't believe anything in a movie about discrimination because the writers have proven themselves to be liars who are trying to control what people think.

Then, on a hunch, I challenged him.  "What do you think about Mussolini?"

He became hesitant. "Well . . . me, personally . . ."

Then he looked off a little and continued "I have to watch what I say . . ."

And I blurted out "No you don't!"  It was such a perfect example of the very thing I had just warned him about, the mind control of the mass media.

He finally realized that he was in America now and that I wasn't a threat.  He showed a little excitement and revealed, "Now, if you were to ask my grandmother, she would say that Mussolini was the best!  Everything was good back then. People did right.  Everything worked.  My grandfather told me 'Italy needed Mussolini.  Italy was weak and lazy.  Only a strong man could govern Italy.'"

And I asked, "In Italy, you'd be afraid to say these things, right?"

We each learned a little more today about the strangleholds that the Thought Police try to have on our countries.

Reading the Bible in the New Year

The dissident right has all kinds of people in it: evangelicals, atheists, Greek Orthodox, pagans, Catholics, good ol' boys, and others.  Regardless of your identity, you might consider it a good idea to read the Bible this coming year.

Systematic Bible reading has been practiced, mostly by evangelicals, for generations. Many approaches and methods have been proposed. For instance, the New Testament has 261 chapters; there are 52 weeks in a year; reading five chapters per week will take you through the entire New Testament.

There are many, many plans to choose from if you want to read the entire Bible in one year; just search Duck Duck Go. If you're new to Bible reading, your best bet is to read only the New Testament; and even that can be approached in various ways.

Although you will encounter things which you do not understand, reading the Bible isn't difficult and the investment of time isn't burdensome. The hard part is simply making yourself sit down and do it. A regular pattern (a ritual) may help: always do it at the same time every day, probably in the same place.

There are countless translations of the Bible into English. For beauty and tradition, read the King James Version. For easier reading, choose the New King James Version or the English Standard Version. For a very easy version, but still quite reliable, get the New Living Translation. I make all of these recommendations as a PhD who reads Greek and Hebrew. There are other worthy translations, but these are enough.

If you are a Christian, begin each reading session with a prayer that God would open your mind and emotions so that you will benefit from the reading.

Episode 02, Defining a Family

"Family" may be used in many ways, but not in every way that someone might wish. God's pattern is married parents and biological children. Variations are approximations of this ideal, or perhaps damaged versions -- but the ideal remains in spite of tragedy or human error. For the unmarried men, the last segment of the episode speaks about the attractiveness of being strong.

Understanding WCF

I call this a dissident right website.

The dissident right is a mishmash of people who cannot be defined because they cannot be confined. Enemies and detractors will try to pin them down and say “the dissident right is reprehensible because they do X” and a dissident rightist will smile and respond “You don’t know and I don’t care.” He rejects the rules by which his people have been bullied into submission. He has broken free. Such incorrigibility scares normies.

White Christian Family (hereafter “WCF”) has little of the rebelliousness one sometimes sees in the dissident right. We are race-realist, meaning that race exists and it matters. We condemn conservativism for not conserving one single thing. We are nationalist, not globalist: a people has the right to identify itself and its land and must allow other peoples to do the same with their lands, each people group enjoying the fruits of its labors and exercising the right to defend those fruits, the nation’s borders, and the people themselves.

WCF rejects attempts at defining dissident right orthodoxy and condemning heretics who don’t conform to the declared orthodoxy. I myself am a traditional Christian with strict, narrow ethical standards. The dissident right, however, includes people who are very much otherwise. Neither of us is hurting the other. I don’t answer for them, nor they for me. If we find a common cause somewhere along the line, we are free to cooperate. If we choose to separate, it’s nobody else’s business. Normies may convulse and howl their guilt-by-association condemnations until they turn blue and faint, but it will have no effect. The dissident right is invulnerable to name-calling.

At WCF we believe in the Christianity that prevailed for the first 2,000 years of the church, and which is roundly condemned now by the current crop of cucks and suck-ups who dominate the mass Christian media. If this sentiment isn’t clear to you, I’d recommend that you read Richard M. Weaver’s Ideas Have Consequences and The Southern Tradition at Bay. Any culture that reveres Martin Luther King and devotes to destruction a statue of Robert E. Lee has lost its claim to historic Christian identity.

Episode 01, Introduction

Family is the most important thing in the natural world and it deserves careful thought and attention. White people must increase their birthrate or disappear, but the children need to be born into strong homes, and Christian homes have the best chance at succeeding. For singles: a Christian's first step in any endeavor is earnest prayer. You should ask God to make you what you ought to be so that you will deserve the spouse he wants to give you.
