    "Eon's Laws"

    Spotted this in the discussion of today's "Day By Day" cartoon ... if you haven't looked at Day By Day, it's a thoroughly snarky look at politics-as-usual, SJWs, and government-gone-awry. I decided these "laws" might be worth porting over here; they are cynical and amusing, in the fashion of "Murphy's Law," but they also make good sense. (And I figured they might be a good springboard for discussion.)

    Eon’s Laws

    First Law: Human beings choose to follow belief systems, religious, political, or otherwise, which sanctify the sort of actions they would do anyway. The belief system just lets them feel self-righteous about what they want to do to others.

    Second Law: If someone repeatedly and constantly tells you that he wants to kill you, you owe him the courtesy of assuming he really means it and responding appropriately.

    Third Law: Hunter S. Thompson once observed that “entire empires have been done in by vengeful freaks claiming a special relationship with God”. He forgot the even greater number of polities destroyed by even more vengeful freaks who believed that they, themselves, were God.

    Fourth Law: When anyone in government uses the phrase “For The Greater Good”, a smart man or woman quietly slides out through the nearest back exit. With one hand on their wallet, and the other on their sidearm.

    Fifth Law: Any social system that relies solely on the “better nature” of the rulers to protect the ruled from the rulers, isn’t worth having.

    Sixth Law: Never assume a politician will act against what he perceives as his personal best interests. And never, ever assume that he is being truthful when he acts in a way contrary to his philosophy and track record.
    You will spend your life being surprised and disappointed.

    Seventh Law: There are two kinds of people who censor. Those who don’t want to face the facts and those who don’t want anyone else to know what the facts really are. Both are dangerous, just in slightly different ways.

    Eighth Law: “Race” is not destiny. Culture absolutely is. Religion and politics are just a part of culture. Culture is the “operating system” of a civilization. Like any OS, it’s a case of GIGO; Garbage In, Garbage Out.

    As the author put it, "I don’t insist on their irrefutability, but they seem fairly accurate overall."

    Certainly #4 is good advice.

    Disagree. People don't follow belief systems on order to get justification to act in certain ways: they don't follow belief systems at all. They simply act as they choose and say that they follow whatever belief system they happen to be part of.

    -- EDIT --

    I expressed this badly. What I mean is: if a dude wants to have four wives an is a christian, he doesn't go "You know, if I was a muslim I could have four wives, so I'll become a muslim". What he does is go, "I'm a committed christian, and if you squint like this while you read the bible, you can clearly see that it's cool to have four wives".

    Some guys get off on women competing for their whatever it is.
    If 1 woman = marriage then
    2 women = pairity
    3 women = adultery and
    4 women = competition.

    Once you get to 5 women, it is all of the above
    in a herd mentality which is mutually ugly and profane.
    It is still workable that way but not pretty for anyone.

    Re: "Eon's Laws"

    To this thread I agree.

    Eons' laws are just like Murphys' laws.

    Once they are grasped, they become axiomatic in the
    mind of the observer.

    Very very neatly stated.

    Thank you,

    yeah... for me, "race" is just a construct.. and not a very well-made one at that....

    Edit:

    Also race is NOT a construct. When you study the biology, there are differences in each race. This will never be reported on by the lamestream media and our "I heart women" country.

    the unperson known as "Manly" may have been banned.. but I want to go on record that genetic testing has shown that the non-white "races" are not only human.. but the differences are so minor, they are almost irrelevant.....

    Any racial differences there are certainly aren't relevant to MGTOW in that, as far as I know, all men across all cultures face the same issues with women.

    Here, Here!

    Well said, Sir William.

    Looking for our differences is a NAWALT presupposition.
    What we tend to do on this site is look for why AWALT.

    It is what we have in common and what brings us here.
    Ironically, it seems to be why women go to the restroom in groups.
