Watered-Down Blood — Laurent Guyénot
The Medieval Origin of Western Individualism
…Here I will argue that the medieval papacy is responsible for the creation of the modern Western individual, that rootless man obsessed by his own salvation, identity, and self-realization. I will not deny that Western individualism has produced an exceptional harvest of geniuses in all fields of human culture, and unleashed an unprecedented outpouring of creativity. That, I think, is undeniable. And perhaps it was worth it. I will simply argue that the pathological—and contagious—stage that Western individualism has reached today is the end-result of a program of de-socialization written by the Roman papacy. To borrow from Joseph Henrich’s remarkable book, The WEIRDest People in the World, to which I will return: “by undermining intensive kinship, the Church’s marriage and family policies gradually released individuals from the responsibilities, obligations, and benefits of their clans and houses.” Over many generations, this social engineering wired our uniquely individualistic psychology.
It may sound counter-intuitive to blame Christianity for the loss of kinship bonds, since practicing Christians are today the defenders of family values in the West. That is because of the paradox that Christianity is both revolutionary and conservative. It was revolutionary at the beginning, and conservative at the end. All established religions are conservative, that is their main social function. But Western Christianity’s conservatism is about preserving what little kinship structure it didn’t destroy in its revolutionary stage: the nuclear family, the last step before complete social disintegration.
…What shall we compare the Weird West to? To a piece of ground yielding a miraculous harvest that left its anthropological soil barren and toxic? Or perhaps to a doped athlete or artist who now has to pay for his success with his health. There is no question that the almost superhuman boost in energy and creativity that the West got from its Christian-inspired individualism did come with a heavy price. We have been high, but we are now starting to experience the withdrawal symptoms. And possibly the irreversible brain damage. Anthropological reality (otherwise known as human nature) is catching up. We have constructed a new world, but now discover that it has deconstructed us as human beings.link
Guyénot is one of our most interesting and provocative writers on Western history, its downfall and the religious roots thereof. Above I have excerpted a few paragraphs that can provide the gist of his essay but I hope not a substitute for reading it and his other works. ABN
UPDATE: I should mention that I believe the importance of clans and lineages and races will go away when eugenic manipulation of gametes and zygotes becomes common. One day soon, there will also be digital manipulations of cell lines and gestation in pods which will provide perfect environments for fetal development. This technology is closer than many realize. It will produce people with IQs higher than any human who has ever lived and bodies as perfect as any that has ever existed. When in maybe fifty years, people are able to fine tune their offspring to produce the best qualities imaginable, ‘Darwinian’ lineages and relationships will become a thing of the past overnight and our concerns today will seem as important as those of homo habilis of 1.5 million years ago. Positively no one will care. ABN
FBI Refuses to Give Physical Document to House Investigators Outlining Biden Bribery Scheme, Now Claim “Ongoing Investigation”…
Here we go again with the ever-familiar silo defense. The FBI is refusing to hand over the unclassified FD-1023 stating there is an ongoing investigation using the confidential human source who made allegations outlined in the document. Remember, the allegations and the statement record was created in July of 2020, almost three years ago.
Prior to last week, the FBI refused to say the 6-page unclassified document existed. After House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer told FBI Director Chris Wray he had already seen the unclassified document via a whistleblower, then Comey admitted the FBI indeed had it. Today, the FBI is refusing to release the document, stating it is now captive as part of an “ongoing investigation.” The claimed investigation began July 2020 – the investigation is “ongoing”.link
‘Ongoing criminal obfuscation’ is what it is. State police cannot be policed, a major sign of civilizational decline. ABN
The Corporate Equality Index and the ESG Racket
New York Times Gains Insider Information on Twitter Revenue, Expanded Financials Look Worse Than Former Estimates
…Bottom line, Musk has to make decisions through one prism, THE ECONOMICS. Musk’s decision-making, pro freedom or not, is constrained by this financial dependency. Hence, a lot of the platform censorship elements remain (including some personnel) and now the outreach to appoint Google/WEF approved Linda Yaccarino in an effort to enhance the revenue.
When you are perplexed about Musk decision making…. THERE’S YOUR ANSWER.link
This is very good analysis of Musk’s predicament. It probably roughly explains Anheuser-Busch, Target, and other large corporations who are being forced to follow Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) guidelines to get good marks on the Corporate Equality Index (CEI) or lose financial backing.

Robert Hanssen found dead in supermax prison aged 79: FBI agent, sexual deviant, and Opus Dei devotee – who tried to convert a stripper to Catholicism – sold US nuclear secrets to the Russians for 20 years
A former FBI agent convicted of espionage for Russia and serving a life sentence in a Colorado Supermax prison has died at the age of 79.
The bureau confirmed Monday that Robert Hanssen was found unresponsive in his federal prison cell at the ADX in Florence, Colorado around 6.55am.
A cause of death has not yet been released as of yet.
Hanssen became notorious in the United States when he was arrested in 2001 and pleaded guilty to selling highly classified materials to the Soviet Union and later to Russia for more than 20 years.
He was sentenced to life in the Supermax prison, where he has languished for the last two decades.
After his arrest, details of Hanssen’s sordid life as a sexual deviant became known as he allowed a friend to watch him and his wife have sex without her knowledge. Hanssen then began to secretly record the encounters and detailed his sex life in online chat rooms.
Hanssen – a devout member of the conservative Opus Dei sect of the Catholic Church – also spent time with a stripper named Priscilla Sue Galey, giving her money, jewels and even a 1985 Mercedes-Benz 190E sedan.link

Jacinda Ardern made a dame in King’s Birthday Honours
Former Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was in “two-minds” about accepting a damehood as part of this year’s King’s Birthday Honours, saying her work in the top job was only possible because of the support of others.
“So many of the things I am being recognised for were things that were a collective experience, that all New Zealand were a part of, and that I never felt came down to one single individual,” she said.
Ardern, who spent nearly six years as prime minister before her shock resignation earlier this year, has received the honour for services to the state.
“Over the years of being involved in the honours process, there have been a number of people that I’ve come across who have felt the same way, who I have convinced to take recognition.
“So for me this is about my family, my colleagues and all those who supported me to do that incredibly rewarding job.”link
The payoff. Compensation for the guilt of being so wrong and causing so much harm. I have a feeling that when the accolades are public like this, the recipient is not among the top players, who are rewarded in secret with in unspeakable ways. ABN
Postal Service Releases Final Report – Contract Driver Jesse Morgan Vindicated – Report CONFIRMS He Hauled Trailer of Ballots from NY to PA in Late October 2020
As The Gateway Pundit reported in 2020, election fraud whistleblowers came forward in December following the controversial election, including one who witnessed the shipping of an estimated 144,000-288,000 completed ballots across three state lines on October 21.
The new information was made public at a press conference by the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, a national constitutional litigation organization.
The Amistad Project said that they have sworn declarations that state over 300,000 ballots are at issue in Arizona, 548,000 in Michigan, 204,000 in Georgia, and over 121,000 in Pennsylvania.
They claim that their evidence reveals multi-state illegal efforts by USPS workers to influence the election in at least three of six swing states.link
INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS SAY U.S. HAS RETRIEVED CRAFT OF NON-HUMAN ORIGIN
A former intelligence official turned whistleblower has given Congress and the Intelligence Community Inspector General extensive classified information about deeply covert programs that he says possess retrieved intact and partially intact craft of non-human origin.
The information, he says, has been illegally withheld from Congress, and he filed a complaint alleging that he suffered illegalretaliation for his confidential disclosures, reported here for the first time.
Other intelligence officials, both active and retired, with knowledge of these programs through their work in various agencies, have independently provided similar, corroborating information, both on and off the record.
Thewhistleblower, David Charles Grusch, 36, a decorated former combat officer in Afghanistan, is a veteran of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO). He served as the reconnaissance office’s representative to the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force from 2019-2021. From late 2021 to July 2022, he was the NGA’s co-lead for UAP analysis and its representative to the task force.link
My partner always reminds me why is this being released now? Is this the next psyop? It’s also possible maintaining the secrecy has become counterproductive. My understanding is crashed alien craft have all been drones or robots and do not or did not contain alien beings. I personally am convinced aliens are here and are not out to destroy us. I am also pretty sure they feel compassion for us and can probably relate based on their own history to our inner struggles with violence and kindness. ABN
Researchers are acquitted for showing that most rapes in Sweden are committed by migrants
Many have taken for granted that research in Sweden is free. So did the research doctor Kristina Sundquist – until she became the subject of a criminal investigation for having conducted prohibited research on who commits rape in Sweden. After living with a criminal stamp on him for two years, the investigation is now closed. However, Sundquist does not receive any apology or compensation for how she was affected.
Kristina Sundquist is a doctor in general medicine. By chance, she discovered in connection with a research project that there is a large over-representation of migrants as perpetrators of rape and chose to draw attention to this. She wouldn’t have done that.
The fact that this information was not withheld was not looked upon with kindly eyes higher up in the research world. The Appeals Board for Ethics Review (Önep) decided on its own initiative to report Sundquist for “unethical” research and thus put an end to it.
“Not permission” to research
According to the report, Sundquist “did not have permission” to mention such things in his research and the case was handed over to prosecutors for criminal investigation. For two years, she has been forced to live with a degrading criminal label on her in the world of research, with the consequences for her career.
But now the yoke is lifted from Sundquist’s shoulders, at least partially, when Eva-Marie Persson, chief prosecutor at the Public Prosecutor’s Office’s development centre, announces that the investigation is closed. However, this does not happen because it has been concluded that it is not possible to prove that Sundquist committed any crime.
The reason is instead that the prescription period has expired. This means that Sundquist will never be completely washed clean and receive redress. This may mean that she may also find it difficult to conduct research in the future.link
The original article is in Swedish. The excerpt above is from a Google translation of the article. This kind of repressive official behavior (even in the sciences) is due to centuries of clan-busting policies first from Catholics and then other Christians. The result is a society incapable of understanding most of the rest of the world which is societally clan-based. Western peoples are for the most part incapable of defending themselves against clan-based aggression, infiltration, takeover, domination. You can see for yourself how bad this situation is by simply raising this topic within a group of Westerners. Chances are you will be socially censured immediately and ostracized if you repeat the behavior. Just as clannishness has been ingrained into most human beings for tens or thousands of years, so clannishness has been extirpated from Westerners who now react violently against it. Shows that cultural conditioning is a big deal. At the bottom somewhere is a strong instinct. ABN
