Friday fitness: don’t be a Marxist or a minion.

Last night we were talking about trajectories in life. There is a positive trajectory.

  1. Seek God. Live a virtuous, frugal, fit and disciplined life. Not because it attracts a partner, but because it allows you to look after others: you have looked after yourself
  2. Wed a Godly spouse, who reinforces, a virtuous, disciplined and fit life
  3. Stay out of debt. Stay out of cities.
  4. Raise a bunch of kids, home school them
  5. Encourage them to repeat the cycle

If you do this, you will end up at around my age with children and grandchildren and still being strong and fit. You can herd cows and run away from bulls. You can care for the grandchildren. You may have chronic diseases, but you are not a cardiac cripple.

But if you are a Marxist, all this is the teaching of the patriarchy and must be destroyed. This will put you at risk, at the coming counter revolution. But before that, it will kill you early, and you will have to give an account to the almighty.

David Graeber, the anthropologist who was influential in the Occupy Wall Street movement and is believed to have coined the phrase, “We are the 99%,” has died at age 59.

Graeber’s death was confirmed on the morning of September 3 by his wife, Nika Dubrovsky. Dubrovsky tweeted, “Yesterday the best person in a world, my husband and my friend . @davidgraeber died in a hospital in Venice.”

Graeber was a professor of anthropology at the London School of Economics and wrote the book Debt: The First 5000 Years which was published in 2011. His other books include 2015’s The Utopia of Rules and 2018’s Bullshit Jobs: A Theory. In addition to his involvement with Occupy Wall Street, Graeber was also known for his activism with the Global Justice Movement. On his Twitter page, Graeber described himself as “an anthropologist, sometimes I occupy things & such. I see anarchism as something you do not an identity so don’t call me the anarchist anthropologist.”

Note that this is not the minion. The minions die much earlier, because they were taught the rules do not apply. They do.

They also promote a lifestyle which goes something like this:

  • If it feels good, do it. Have risky sex, do extreme sports, indulge in various substances of various toxicity
  • Gain a credential or qualification, as you cannot rely on any husband or man.
  • The state is more reliable — in fact, you don’t need a partner
  • Never listen to your parents or anyone who would correct you and harsh your buzz
  • Continue to do this into your thirties, in an extended adolescence
  • At this point, have a long term partner, and attempt to have children
  • But continue to keep the same lifestyle. Your children are an accessory to your activism and lifestyle
  • When your partner gets in the way of your enjoyment or perfection of your lifestyle, leave him our of your life, and keep the children from him or her. They will cope
  • Live in a diverse city, so you can experience as many different cultures as possible. The increased risk is not great
  • Kick your kids out early, or encourage them to remain in an extended adoblescence as you did
  • At fifty, when you have lost the ability to do extreme sports, adopt cats. You know you can’t look after dogs
  • Expect a pension when you retire (at 70).
  • Ensure your children euthanize you when your health fails, or you hit 80, for the sake of the planet

Do not live that way. There is a reason Moses called the book of the law the way of life. It may be harder, but it is more sustainable.

And you will not live in fear of the wrath of social media and the press. The woke do, and from that they all too often die.
