The Age of Absurdity

Chegamos ao ponto de defender a segregação racial como solução para a segregação racial.

We have gone so far as to defend racial segregation as a solution to racial segregation.


The West has gone through many eras – the so-called Dark Ages, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution and Postmodernism. The current era is that of the absurd.

As for the absurdities in which the intellectual elites believe and have convinced the masses to believe, there has never been a time like now. Here’s a list of the most ridiculous things that come to my mind.

1 – Men give birth
Heading the list has to be the redefinition radical – in fact, the denial – of sex and gender, which gives rise to surreal statements such as “men give birth”, “men menstruate”, “people who give birth”, in place of “woman” and who take the parks from Disney to abandon “ladies and gentlemen” and “girls and boys” when addressing visitors.

2 – It is fair to allow biological males to compete in female competitions

We are led to believe that biological men do not have an innate physical advantage when competing against women. This is held to be true by every elite university in the United States and virtually every other institution of its kind, as well as high schools and the press.


3 – Kill the police and crime will decrease

We are led to believe that a smaller police force will result in a decrease in violent crime. Any ten year old child knows this is absurd.

4 – Racial segregation is anti-racist. Whoever is against segregation is racist
Columbia University and other institutions of higher learning have black-only dormitories and black-only courses. They argue that racial segregation is not racist. If you are against this, you are racist.

5 – “Latinx”

As human sexuality would be “non-binary”, the differentiations of gender in languages ​​must be neutralized. Latinos, for example, should be called “Latinx”. The fact that no one in Latin America uses it does not embarrass the “New York Times” or the universities.

6 – Your race is important
One of the least important aspects of human beings is the color of their skin. Giving importance to this is the same as giving importance to the color of your shoes.

The insignificance of the color of the skin is easily demonstrable. From a person’s skin color, what do you know about them? The answer, of course, is “nothing”. If I know your race, I don’t know anything about you anymore. And if I believe I can define you based on your race, it’s because I’m racist.

7 – Diversity is a good thing and the happiest countries in the world are Finland, Norway, Denmark and Iceland

An axiom of progressives is the absurdity according to which “diversity is our strongest point”. Yet the New York Times, the leading voice of the Age of Absurdity, published an opinion piece about the happiest countries in the world. The second paragraph reads that “Finland, Norway, Denmark and Iceland lead the list of World Happiness Reports of


At no time does the newspaper or the columnist realize that the four countries “happiest” people in the world don’t have that much diversity. In fact, they are among the least diverse countries in the Western world. They are almost all white, Protestant Christians (or of Protestant Christian origin) and all citizens speak the same language. The United States, on the other hand, is by far the most radical experiment in racial, religious, and ethnic diversity.

8 – A freedom of expression does not allow hate speech

“I defend free speech, but not hate speech” is what almost half of young Americans and practically the entire elite of the country. Belief in this absurdity is so widespread that these people do not understand that the claim is contradictory. By definition, freedom of expression presupposes hate speech. Otherwise, freedom of expression would only mean saying what one agrees with.

9 – You only become a human being after you are born
You don’t have to believe in God or any religion to understand the absurdity of it. If we only become human beings after birth, what are we five minutes – or five months – before birth, when we have heartbeats and brain waves? Aren’t we human?

– Capitalism is bad Poverty has been the rule for virtually all people throughout history. In the last century, however, billions of people have been lifted out of poverty. And there’s only one reason for that: capitalism.

11 – The US is structurally racist

The absurdity of this statement can easily be demonstrated. In recent decades, more than 3 million blacks have entered the United States from Africa and the Caribbean. And probably tens of millions would like to do the same. Are all these people idiots choosing to move to a structurally racist country? Or are they ignorant and not aware that the United States is structurally racist?

The answer is obvious and not absurd: these blacks are neither idiots nor ignorant. They know they are lucky to be moving to the United States because this country is tolerant and incredibly non-racist. People don’t migrate to countries that hate them. No Jews migrated to Germany in the 1990s 960.

We live in the of the Absurd. The only question is: why? I think I know the answer and will discuss it in a future text. For now, share these nonsense with friends and relatives, especially with those who think they make sense.
