Ho ho ho! It’s that time of year again. Here’s JHK’s holiday classic: A Christmas Orphan.

11-year-old Jeff Greenaway hears his mom and dad argue one night after an office Christmas party. He infers from their garbled squabble that he is an orphan, found in a willow basket on the welcome mat outside their New York apartment. Thinking now that his parents are imposters, he steals away to Grand Central Station and buys a train ticket to Drakesville, Vermont, where he intends to start life all over again.

A trenchant, brave, and important essay by Auticulture blogger, Jasun Horsley on the cultural mystifications of the popular transgender meme, and its role in the pernicious identity politics of our time.

The Rise of the Dream-State: Trans Agendas, Gender Confusion, Identity & Desire (Part 1 of 3)

Part 2:  Transhumanism, Postgenderism, Brain-Centricism, Psychic Fragmentation

Part 3Trans-Culture, Paraphilias, Non-Duality, & Corporate Cures for Alienation


Excerpt:

The transgender question spans the whole spectrum of human interest, from psychological to biological, social to cultural, religious to technological, political to spiritual. It would be hard to conceive of a hotter topic — or button — than the question of when — or if  — a man becomes a woman, and vice versa. Wrapped up inside this question is a still deeper one of what makes a human being a human being, what constitutes personal identity, and how much identity is or can be made subject to our desire, and vice versa. Among the countless lesser questions which the subject raises, here are a sample few, some (though probably not all) of which I will address in the following exploration.

1) The question of biological sex and social gender roles

2) The question of possible causes for transgenderism or gender confusion

3) The question of what possible outside interests the “trans agenda” may be serving, whether corporate, military, governmental, ideological, or otherwise

4) The question of how transgenderism affects women and their position in society

5) The question of how it affects men and their position in society

6) The question of how transgenderism overlaps with/is compatible with transhumanism

7) The question of how children are being affected and possibly endangered by transgenderism as a social trend

8) The question of how transgender individuals are being discriminated against and abused in society

9) The question of class and privilege, and how transgender individuals may be themselves practicing discrimination and abuse

10) The question of whether ideology can be seen as a counter-measure or corrective to biology and psychology

11) The question of whether identity has any actual validity outside of group think and social constructs designed to control us and suppress our life force

12) The question of social and possibly biological anomalies within a community or species

13) The question of group identity and scapegoating

    This subject isn’t really a subject at all Jim, it is just another distraction. It is a lot easier to steal a man’s wallet if you set his hair on fire first. In a nation where there is no longer any governance in government but only graft, corruption and theft, those who perpetrate these evils upon their own population are constantly aware of the possibility and terrified of the eventuality that the victims may someday wake up and do something about it. Keeping the masses diverted from reality by creating chaos is almost a sure fire way to achieve the goal of keeping up the scam. It only fails to work if the Fat & Happys somehow are no long able to maintain Fat & Happy but revert to Lean & Mean. In the current degrading financial and economic situation, Lean & Mean is actually a specter on the horizon for the Thieves at the Top when they look at the mass of Sheeple that they fleece. Distraction in these shaky times must go far beyond Bread & Circuses in order to maintain the Status Quo. They are getting desperate because they know a lot more about what’s coming down the pike than they are letting onto.
