    Well, seeing as how I have experience in actually doing, I will re-confirm that making the location of you and your loved-ones' bodies not align with the immediately obvious location(s) is indeed effective in buying you time, and with time, options.

    Enh. My comment was probably un-called-for actually. Looking back I don't think you were trying to convince me of anything in particular with that quote (that was later -- my mistake). But it didn't really answer the question, either, of what is unrighteous dominion. :rolleyes: Wouldn't it be funny if I turned out to be Irish? You have read so much into the things I've written over the years. Things which I didn't write, but which you thought were there. Just because the Irish have certain distinctive characteristics (less outbred, more clannish, Catholic) vs. other ethnicities does not mean I want to "keep them out," nor that I even consider the Irish inferior (I don't), nor that those particular characteristics are unambiguously negative (they aren't). And one of your techniques in carrying out this discourse you wish to take place is that of "calling out" alleged offenders. One of which happens to be me. Now, you don't even like to be "called out" as possibly left-leaning, which is a perfectly acceptable thing to be and an identity with which you are probably perfectly comfortable in your off-line non-RPF life. Why, I myself am naturally inclined to be even more left-aligned than you are, probably! And yet you don't like it. So just how effective do you think it is to "call out" your fellow RPFers as racist, sexist, homophobic, etc., etc.? I personally find it tiresome. Tedious. Boring. Useless. It's a technique the left uses to try to shut down discourse (like, the actual kind) and shut down thought. You think I'm a horrible, hateful racist homophobe: fine. Great. Who cares! Move on!

    Not Socratic. I was and am not trying to teach you anything (how presumptuous!) but truly trying to learn something myself. OK, good. I appreciate the honesty. I can tell from this you're saying "not that I agree with all of it!" Just as you are certainly not a socialist -- very far from it! -- so too you do not accept all of President Ezra Taft Benson's political views. Indeed, perhaps you are just as far away from and just as hostile toward his views as you are towards Orwell's. I was just sincerely interested, seeing as how it had seemed to me in the past like you are a quite left-leaning person. If you are instead reading and agreeing with The Red Carpet, if An Enemy Hath Done This holds an honored place on your bookshelf, then my understanding of you would have been quite wrong and I would need to change it, and, most importantly: it would be interesting! That would have been totally unpredictable! Out of left field! (Or right field, in this case.) We could have a further dialogue! I could ask "What in the world are you all about undergroundrr? Where is this wild pro-gay, pro-immigrant, anti-leftism coming from and how is it coherent?"

    This is horrible. Pure evil. This is why the schools all need to be blown up: as a national catharsis, eradicating this festering putrescence. Now, here's my practical advice. From the article: "Christian did not believe that was their business to know the details, and he and Katie chose to reject the primary school’s opinion that they needed to have Camden evaluated and treated by psychologists. "The school reported the Maples to Child Protective Services. Eight police officers later surrounded the family’s house and took 7 year old Camden away from his home and his family." One needs to be alert to these things, and expect escalation. They had just brushed off the school authorities. Now, how many people do you know who like being brushed off? That's right, none. The parents just insulted the authorities and put them in their place. "None of my business? We'll see about that." They needed to expect a counter-move and not be at home. Much harder to kidnap the boy then, when the family has spontaneously decided to go on vacation. For a month. To Austria.

    I'm not trying to be difficult. While the answer doubtless is obvious to you (having convenient access to your own thoughts), it is anything but obvious to me and my little (and non-clairvoyant) brain. Otherwise I wouldn't have, you know, asked. So, could you clear up my curiosity and type the words "Yes, I am definitely a huge fan of Ezra Taft Benson's politics"?

    Cool, Tom Woods is talking about the alt-right, eh? I'd be interested in what he has to say. I just haven't had time for anyone's videos or podcasts lately, but one of these days. Feel free to give a synopsis!

    Yeah, that kind of sums it up, although all the Stoics advocated that, so the asceticism doesn't really set him apart, as key as it was to his philosophy. I very much like his emphasis on action and results. That good philosophy is lived, not merely written, and that if the philosophy does not lead to tangible good and wholesome felicity in the lives of its practitioners (practitioners, not adherents, note) then what is it good for? Like love: absolutely nothing! :D

    Trophy Hunting Helps Save Endangered Species 63 COMMENTS 07/30/2015Ryan McMaken UPDATE: Bizarrely, some readers have tried to argue, in the comments here and at Facebook, that people are only upset because the lion hunt noted here was illegal. That was obviously always untrue, and has now been confirmed by the fact that the outrage is nearly intense in response to photos posted by a hunter named Sabrina Corgatelli. Corgatelli has never been accused of any illegal hunt, but, a perusal of Twitter will make it abundantly clear that the sentiment behind the lion outrage was not "we don't like illegal hunting" but "we don't like hunting." (See "Idaho huntress Sabrina Corgatelli speaks out after her 'kill' photos spark outrage.") "Comments on her legal hunts include "you're a monster," "I hope you get eaten" "horrible old hag" and so on. But, the fact remains that without private ownership of this big game, helped by the economic incentives that come with trophy hunting, it is only a matter of time until these animals become extinct. Government prohibitions of such activities will work about as well as prohibitions on illegal drugs and on immigration.

    Wolf Territorial BehaviorBy nature wolves are very territorial animals. They can have a home range from 33 to 6,200 km2 but it depends on the type of wolf and where they reside. On average it is about 35 km2. This is quite a bit of territory for a single wolf pack to take over. That is why many of them overlap with others. It is seldom that these packs of wolves will come into contact with each other. It is estimated that 50% of the territory of a wolf pack is covered daily. They aren’t idle for very long, making it hard to track where they are actually at. The low number of wolves as well as their movements make it harder for experts to keep a close eye on them for research and observation purposes. Wolves do have an area of their territory that is considered to be the core. It is often in the middle of the radius of their range or very close to it. This is where up to 50% of the time of a given wolf pack will be spent. This is the location where they feel very safe so it is common for the dens where the mothers give birth to be close to the core as well. They give warning signals of where they will be including loud howls and barking. Generally the wolf packs will avoid being around each other unless they are fighting for food that may be in short supply. When that occurs these wolf packs may engage in battles with each other in order to continue have their claim on a given location as well as the food found within it. Wolves may need to shift their territory though based on factors implemented by humans. When people clear out part of their natural habitat they may have to find a new route to get to their food sources. This can create more conflicts among the various wolf packs due to over stepping their bounds. Yet territorial lines that are marked by urine and scents are often overlooked when it is a matter of ultimate survival for these animals. On average, more than 60% of the deaths out there among wolves and conflicting packs is due to territorial issues. Just about all wolves live in packs but there are some loners out there. It is speculated that they have learned they can do better at staying undetected in enemy territory if they are by themselves instead of part of a unit. To compensate for this they have to hunt smaller animals such as rodents for their survival. How do new packs develop in the wild? When offspring is born into a pack those that survive generally stay for the first couple of years of life. Studies show about half of all pups die within the first year. Less than 1/3 of them are able to make it to adulthood. They can remain with their pack forever if they wish, but the fact that only the alpha male and the beta female generally will breed often pushes the males to go seek their own pack. They know that they won’t be able to take part in it if they remain where they are. From a scientific standpoint this is done to reduce the risk of inbreeding occurring for the wolf species out there. They are very vulnerable when they are out on their own. The risk is greater for males that venture out than it is for females. Should their scents bring them into contact though they often will start their own wolf pack at that point in time.
