A Pyrrhic Dance - Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema
I don’t encourage people have sex with people who they have no emotional connections with ( I mean, sex without love, sexual intercourse without even a friendship), unless they are really stable with their existences and needs. I don’t like to see sex just as a ”natural need” sex is the union of two energies and souls, and doing that with someone that you aren’t connected, may be spiritually and mentally wearing, I speak for personal experience.
re-blogging because i absolutely agree with this statement.

The Boredom of Pacifism
Under pacifism and democracy, the individual is literally dying of boredom, rather than living and dying heroically.
Ours is an age in which everything is based on the premise that it is best to live as long as possible. The average life span has become the longest in history, and a monotonous plan for humanity unrolls before us.
Once a young man finds his place in society, his struggle is over, and there is nothing left for youth apart from retirement, “and the peaceful, boring life of impotent old age.” The comfort of the welfare state ensures against the need to struggle, and one is simply ordered to “rest.”❞
