The tears of a philosopher

Julie Ponesse Ethics Professor Huron College University of Western Ontario, dismissed for not submitting to genetic medical experimentation” This 5-minute lesson demonstrates that philosophy is all that separates man from the beasts. Last week, the beasts hurt a human, and they crowed in evil triumph. God sees her tears. She will not be the only person to cry in Canada. What a shame. This is the one you want teaching your children and grandchildren.

“Dumbing Down K-12 Education” “…instead of focusing on academic instruction, school boards, administrators, and teachers advanced curriculum agendas centering on a host of other topics. These include gender redefinition and self-selection, a twisted anti-American historical narrativeCritical Race Theory, and other woke academics under the increasingly familiar guise of innocent-sounding terms — diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. Redefining equity as equal outcome rather than equal opportunity, challenging students academically with high standards is now viewed as discrimination. Consequently, advanced courses are being removed because students of some races and ethnicities aren’t represented proportionately.”

To a good (new) year

To our Jewish readers around the world, L’Shanah Tovah – to a good (new) year (5782) – starting Monday night at sunset. The greeting is not “Happy new year”, but “To a good year”. Here is a 29-second video of blowing the shofar (ram’s horn) at sunrise in Jerusalem.

This day is described as a day of remembrance; a day of shofars; and a day of judgment for the Israelites. It inaugurates the ten days of repentance (literally, returning). Rosh Ha-Shanah (head of the year) is the day for the verdict. Nine days later, Yom Kipur (day of atonement) is the day for the sentence.

After writing about health and wellness, I was intrigued by a website for a group of wellness practitioners calling their field “functional medicine”. It is an interesting, holistic approach to wellness. Many of the practitioners are MDs, along with DOs, PAs, NPs, and so on. This is their organization, the Institute for Functional Medicine.

https://www.ifm.org/

This two-minute video gives a nice introduction to the main ideas of functional medicine.

https://video.ifm.org/one-condition-many-causes-one

You can search on their website for a local practitioner. We found several in our area. Sadly, they do not call out the dangers of the CoVID injections. However, they are more focused on improving people’s wellness so they don’t get sick in the first place.

This paper was published in Pubmed in March, 2021. What would happen if you linked to it on social media? Would it be deemed “anti-science”? “Exploring the binding efficacy of ivermectin against the key proteins of SARS-CoV-2 pathogenesis: an in silico approach” “Ivermectin was found to be an efficient inhibitor of Mpro, replicase and hTMPRSS2 and the study manifests a superior ground for the candidature of ivermectin to be an efficient anti-SARS-CoV-2 therapeutic option.”

Home fitness equipment

OK, I will be honest. I need a change of pace from the dreary decay of society. Below are some suggestions for equipment for working out at home. These devices are mostly portable and won’t cost you too much. However, they only work if you use them…! Going from cheapest to most expensive…

Hand workout equipment.

Washable cushion set – good for floor work – expensive for the purpose, but unusually comfortable.

Stand or sit elliptical bicycle – assembly required. It took me a few hours. Multifunction display, including heart rate monitor.

Vibration plate. I believe this is one of the simpler ones, that vibrates in one dimension. More sophisticated models vibrate in all three dimensions, so they give a better workout.

Adjustable dumbbells. The set shown below adjusts in 10 lb. increments to 50 lb total each side. The set I purchased adjusted in 5 lb. increments to 25 lb. total each side (better to entice Mrs. Surak).

The Total Gym is fun to use and very versatile. This popular model, the Apex, costs less than half of the cheapest model on the manufacturer’s own website, the XLS, at the cost of perhaps a slightly smaller bench. If you are built like a defensive blocker, get the XLS.

All together, these items will set you back less than $1400. I would like to hear your suggestions if you think I have missed any major type of exercise equipment under $1000.

See you tomorrow!

Into the gulag: July 21, 2021

I am looking forward to a trip tomorrow into America’s heartland. I pray the madness has not infected them yet, please God. I will look for pictures I can share with you.

Until then, the news.

An interview with Alexander Dugin” I would like your opinion on this controversial philosopher. At some time, I would like to begin philosophical discussions of the basics we take for granted. Do these basic assumptions lead to dangers for society?

Dugin is not the first to question the nominalist choice in the Middle Ages. “Are ideals real or nominal? Who cares?” Oh, you should care. Richard Weaver explained why in his book Ideas Have Consequences, and Dugin seems to follow in his footsteps.

Glenn Beck warned that Dugin is dangerous. I respect the warning, because Beck profoundly understands the power of ideas. However, as I watch my society disintegrate, I will continue to read dangerous ideas that may help me understand why.

Seeking health

“If you have your health, you have everything!” That’s what I heard from my grandparents. I suspect there is some common etymological explanation for “health” and “wealth”; the latter word originally signified being well, not rich.

Now I am in something of a cautious relationship with America’s sickcare system. I can’t call it the healthcare system. I have witnessed too many problems in the last few years firsthand. This includes:

  • incorrect diagnoses more than once from “great” doctors treating both me and my wife;
  • the alarm the PA demonstrated when told my wife was taking hydroxychloroquine;
  • the involuntary injection of a medication into my wife in an ER that caused her to go into convulsions one week after she had a concussion.

It is clear to me now that our best option is to avoid the sickcare system as best we can. My wife’s knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine partners with our commitment to learning about supplements and maintaining wellness.

I have told you about the magic of banlangen tea, with its potent anti-viral properties. That was not quite enough to handle our encounter with our vaccinated friends’ shedding of spike protein, but anise star tea cured us. This past week, my wife had scheduled an appointment with a podiatric surgeon because of a flare-up of arthritis in her foot. On a whim, she drank some pu’er tea (also called pu’erh). The appointment is now cancelled.

The main reason I am writing today is to reach out for help with obtaining a very wonderful supplement called Anatabloc. It was an over-the-counter supplement made from the tobacco plant, consisting of a chemical called anatabine.

Based on online testimonials, it was used successfully to treat all types of inflammatory diseases, from arthritis to digestive disorders. It also relieved symptoms of neurological diseases that manifest with inflammation, from autism to dementia. It was a miracle substance that was getting popular, and might have threatened some big pharmaceutical companies. You can read some stories here:

https://bringbackanatabloc.org/

An overly enthusiastic marketing campaign, combined with the manufacturer’s proximity to Virginia’s then Republican governor, were enough to motivate the FDA to shut down the American manufacturer entirely.

Soon after, a British-based manufacturer started producing Anatabloc for a year or so, until they too were shut down. That was a couple of years ago. We are gradually using up our supply, which relieves my wife’s multiple chronic inflammatory diseases.

This miracle supplement gave substantial relief to people with all types of severe illnesses. Unlike the proposed drug substitutes, this one is safe. And our government took it away from us. I cannot tell you how furious I am with big pharma and their lackeys at the FDA.

Now and then I do another internet search for Anatabloc. The proposed substitutes are nowhere near as effective or safe. The webpages that mention the name say it is “out of stock”. Any tips or directions would be most gratefully appreciated.

We are still here

Mrs. Surak and I were strong enough yesterday to celebrate the giving of the Torah 3497 years ago – give or take. We have had to take some of the home-based treatment I have been describing for you, and linked at the bottom of the blog. I owe a big shout-out to reader Chuck Fire, and his recommendation of Dr. Thomas Levy’s book “Rapid Virus Recovery”.

My symptoms were mild, other than fatigue. Mrs. Surak, however, felt strong headaches and nausea (often linked by migraines), as well as pain in the lungs, in addition to the usual coughs and sneezes. We went to work on over-the-counter supplements: elderberry, zinc, vitamins C and D, as well as the powerful Chinese herbal treatment banlangen. (Say all you want about China, but banlangen works!) Our asthma medication includes an inhaled corticosteroid, which helps to prevent inflammation in the lungs.

We realized we had similar symptoms two weeks earlier. We had driven our elderly neighbor on a half-hour ride to a regional produce outlet. She is conservative, but with her risk factors, decided to take the “vaccine”. After we returned from that outing, the two of us felt woozy for a while.

The experience after the lunch with our friends last week just reinforced our belief that we had experienced “vaccine shedding”. Indeed, a friend wrote to me this morning about his similar symptoms after his wife had gotten the “vaccine”. I have read enough similar accounts to believe that vaccine shedding is real.

That does not mean we were infected with the virus. We were merely exposed to the spike protein, and presumably that is enough to set off the immune reaction we underwent. This begs the obvious question: why not vaccinate using only the spike protein, rather than re-programming your DNA? The simpler option is presumably what will be made available in the better vaccines later this year. (PS – I read that the Novavax vaccine is being pushed back from May to September – kind of like a Frank Sinatra song…)

Mrs. Surak’s condition was sufficiently concerning that we also began treatment with HCQ and azithromycin, which we had prepared for earlier with the assistance of the doctors at “Speak with an MD” (see the bottom of the blog). I also asked her to try the recommendation from Chuck Fire: Dr. Thomas Levy’s prescription of nebulized hydrogen peroxide (HP).

A hand-held nebulizer is cheap. I mixed a 50/50 solution of filtered water and over-the-counter HP (that some people use for gargling). She found the sensation somewhat burning, but she did as much as she could for 10 minutes. She rejected Dr. Levy’s recommendation of a saline dilution, which she said would corrode the machinery. With her background in science and engineering, she should know.

She seems improved now from this morning, even though evening was a worse time for her. Thank God, today is a good day. Reading the experiences of others in similar situations, I think we can expect symptoms to persist at a noticeable level for a week or two. I hope in that time, our bodies will build immune responses to the spike protein, now that it is present in enough quantity. Later on, we will take the famous antibody tests to see if we do have natural immunity.

I have a lot to discuss with you: proving the existence of God; aesthetics of music; economics-finance-investments; quality of life in the 50 states; a constitution for a new America; and so on. It is your education of me that will make that possible.

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, thus you shall bless the people of Israel, saying to them,

The Lord bless you, and keep you;

The Lord make his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you;

The Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.

And they shall put my name upon the people of Israel; and I will bless them.
