Remove Grasshoppers From Your Social Networks
DERANGED GRASSHOPPER BELIEFS
As children, most of us read the fable of The Grasshopper And The Ant. For those who were resistant to believing this, the bizarre, indignant “grasshopper” responses to the recent No Wedding, No Womb initiative confirmed that the African-Americans collective is mostly composed of grasshoppers. Grasshoppers who act and live as if they:
- Don’t understand that out of wedlock births (oow) and the single parenting that is the logical, predictable result of oow, has engulfed the African-American collective in destructive flames.
- Don’t understand that sex is the leading cause of pregnancy, far ahead of in vitro fertilization and immaculate conception.
- Don’t understand that several millennia of human experience have shown that human pair-bonding (also known as marriage), and the extended family obligations created by marriage, represent the best human practice for child-rearing.
- Don’t understand that “programs” cannot replace family.
- Don’t understand that the last few decades of “programs” have not worked; even in the context of a functioning economy. The economy is no longer functioning.
- Don’t understand that the federal and state governments don’t have the money to pay for current “programs.” They certainly don’t have the money for additional “programs.” Nor is there any desire on the part of the rest of the US population to subsidize African-Americans’ dysfunction with additional programs to accommodate our mass, self-destructive refusal to form families.
- Don’t understand that there’s already a time-tested, widely-known, and commonly-practiced human “program” that provides “support systems” for women and their children. It’s called marriage and (legitimate) family.
- Don’t understand that, after 40+ years of our whining, other Americans are not going to rearrange their society to accommodate African-Americans’ refusal to form families. This restructuring won’t happen now, or any time in the foreseeable future. Other people will simply continue to leave us behind. To die in our foolishness.
I say “act and live as if” because I’m not entirely convinced the majority of Black women grasshoppers sincerely believe this foolishness they spout. I believe that many of them adopt grasshopper ideology because doing otherwise would mean the end of “nuthin’ but a brother” business as usual. Adhering to normal, human standards for mate selection and procreation would mean acknowledging that the vast majority of African-American males are unfit and unwilling to function as men by serving as competent protectors and providers.
Once an African-American woman acknowledges this fact, the next logical step is for her to expand her dating and marriage options to include non-Black men the global village. Doing that would require a woman to leave the (false) comfort zone of the devil(s) she knows. However, in the end, the reasons don’t matter. The point is that those who are naysayers to the basic, human norm of “no wedding, no womb” are grasshoppers to be avoided.
THE GRASSHOPPER DIED IN EARLY VERSIONS OF THE FABLE
The grasshopper died because of his foolishness in early versions of the fable. In real life, grasshoppers are generally allowed to destroy themselves. More sensible creatures (the “ants”) don’t have the time, resources, or energy to waste on fools. I suggest that you also don’t waste much time and energy on grasshoppers. Let the grasshoppers live in denial and delusion. They’re irrelevant to everything that matters; including your efforts to move forward in the real world. However, it is important to remove any remaining grasshoppers from your social networks.
GRASSHOPPERS ARE LIABILITIES; CUT THEM LOOSE
The blog host of Sovereign Man recently talked about the importance of building trusted networks in these turbulent times. He said,
In my own experience, I’ve found that I have very little in common with the people who share the color of my passport, and that I have much more in common with those I’ve met around the world who share my outlook and philosophy.
Moreover, this trusted network of individuals around the world, wherever they happen to be based, has often made the difference between success and failure in my life.
As we go through the Age of Turmoil and experiences rapid change and fluctuating crises, I think that having a trusted network will become even more important. The cliche ‘it’s not what you know, it’s who you know,’ is absolutely true… perhaps more so in difficult times.
Lately, I’ve written extensively about why becoming self-reliant is ultimately the way to survive and thrive in the Age of Turmoil… and this is absolutely true. But as ironic as it may sound, I think that building a trusted network is one of the key pillars to achieving self-reliance.
Let me begin by saying that there is a critical difference between building a trusted network, and expecting others to take care of you. The former is a position of strength, the latter is a position of weakness. If you build a network where you are a valued member of the team, you are an asset, not a liability.
. . . It’s much easier to face the world, particularly in the Age of Turmoil, knowing that the people on your team are a carefully selected group of dependable men and women who share your core values and have important skills.
By definition, grasshoppers are liabilities. They reject common sense, and the accumulated wisdom of millennia of human experience. Male and female African-American grasshoppers are already using their female relatives as a primary source of sustenance for their grasshopper lifestyles and out of wedlock offspring. Grasshoppers are also angrily demanding that additional “programs” be established to sustain them. “Programs” = YOU and MORE of your resources that you worked hard to create. Instead of getting agitated about their foolishness, be happy that many previously-unknown, undercover grasshoppers have outed themselves as having grasshopper beliefs.
Cut the grasshoppers loose.
