A recent event around Oxford is today’s stark yet lucid example of the Sovietization of the West. In this case, England, and more tragically, in the area with one of the brightest beacons of Greek civilization and the search for truth in World history, Oxford University.
Some people found stickers questioning the reality of the impossibility of men becoming women or women becoming men in any way beyond cosmetic. And the police got called.
The dictionary definition of man or woman today based on both ‘by definition’ standards as well as biological science, is perhaps not technically illegal. But as Stephen Coughlin explains in his paper, Neo-Marxist cultural changes drill down to politics and then to enforcement. Eventually to jurisprudence as normalization of the new culture sets in.
By definition standards in this case means we define humans as bipeds because nearly all of us walk on two legs and all of us by design walk on two legs despite any tragedy or malformation which may result in another means of locomotion. The same goes for being a man or a woman.
A police force has been accused of “incredible irresponsibility” for treating the display of transphobic stickers around Oxford as a “serious crime”.
Some of the stickers, which have been dotted around the city centre, state: “Woman: noun. Adult human female” and “Women don’t have penises”.
Thames Valley Police has announced that those responsible could be charged with a public order offence and has appealed for witnesses.
It said: “Officers are investigating a large number of offensive stickers that have been placed across Oxford city centre containing transphobic comments.
“It is believed they started appearing in March within the High Street, Catte Street and Parks Road area.”
PC Rebecca Nightingale, the investigating officer, added: “Behaviour like this is not acceptable and we take incidents of this nature very seriously.”
Michael Biggs, Associate Professor in Sociology at the University of Oxford, suggested that the police had overreacted.
“This is literally the Oxford English definition of what a woman is,” he said.
“I can’t believe that needs any stance at all. To say that a dictionary definition is a terrible hate crime is extraordinary. The police is being incredibly irresponsible.”
To get back to reality for a stark second, ANY reaction is an over reaction. With the possible exception of littering or something but given the amount of Marxist or semi-Marxist propaganda one sees on every light standard or telephone pole, there should be no excuse for any reaction at all to a dictionary term.
Returning to this replacement for reality where truth is punishable and destructive fictions are rewarded, Michael Briggs has done an act of bravery beyond perhaps what he is aware of. Of it he is aware, he deserves all of our support. I could list all the professors we are aware of who have lost their jobs and/or been de-platformed for holding a factual position that runs against what is in fact, a full on assault against Western taxonomic systems, but Ill settle for just the one that was sent in today alone:
Perhaps the cancelling of the Sustainable Europe school trip had more to do with the fact that the lead instructor was Mark Hecht.
Hecht, an instructor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at MRU, penned an op-ed in the Vancouver Sun on September 6th, 2019 entitled “Ethnic diversity harms a country’s social trust, economic well-being, argues instructor.”
The article was met with immediate criticism on social media, with activists and journalists accusing Hecht, the Vancouver Sun and Postmedia (the Sun’s parent company) of bigotry, hate, and white supremacy.
BC Human Rights Commissioner Kasari Govender declared Hecht’s article a “call to hatred”, and NDP MLA Ravi Kahlon wrote a response op-ed, saying that Hecht’s piece was “racism and white supremacy wearing a thin disguise of academic bluster.”
I have not read Mark Hecht’s paper, but if this case is anything at all like the other profs who have been cancelled because they spoke a truth that was undeniable as factually correct and consistent with reality or a non-Marxist opinion,, (much like men are men and women are women and the twain meet every time a baby is required) he will be de-platformed for this little defence of free speech and reality. In Canada this is out of proportion to even the US in terms of profs who are fired or discriminated against for their opinions.
The case of Ricardo Ducherne is another perfect example of Sovietization of Western universities in Canada today. Prof. Ducherne is in fact Latin-American. So one tends to be skeptical of the White Supremacist label attached to him.
However he did commit the cardinal sin based on a Marxist model of what is allowed. He stated the fact that Western or European Civilization is the best system for humanity the world has ever seen.
That can be easily quantified in any number of ways of course. But the simplest one is that everyone tries to move into a Classical civilized country, while very very few move out of one to an African tribal one or an Islamic sharia one unless they have pretty extreme reasons. And as we saw with the Islamic State, most of them try and come back.
Perhaps its time someone placed some stickers around town that said:
Women = XX
Men = XY
That, would make for an interesting court case.
