Hidden For A Thousand Years – China’s ‘Underground Great Wall’ – Ancient Origins, via The Epoch Times 29.03.2018
In ancient Chinese history it is recorded that The Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127 AD) battled for 200 years with the Liao and Jin Dynasties, which at the time were ruled by minority races from China’s Northern Territories, the Khitan and Jurchens respectively. The Northern China Plain was an endless flat ground, with no mountains or rivers that could be used to help defend against the northerners. How then, did the weaker Song Dynasty manage to survive for such a long period of time?
[…] Upon further investigation, experts found that ancient war passages were spread throughout Yongqing County in an area covering approximately 300 square kilometers.
Experts discovered that the Yongqing ancient war passages were widespread. They were in fact a large-scale construction used to house troops during times of war. The structures of the caves were complicated and complete, possessing military facilities such as camouflaged exits, covers, and locking gates.
[…] Experts have dug out similar war passages in Yongqing, Xiong county, and Bazhou. The ancient war passages are about 65 kilometers from east to west, 25 kilometers from north to south, which extend through 1,600 square kilometers.
I’m feeling sick today, so here is a few nauseating news from an equally diseased world:
1. Army of fragmented personalities forget to eat, they are still fat.
Couple have more than 400 personalities between them – and struggle with everyday tasks because they’re ‘all fighting to be heard’ – The Mirror 28.03.2018
[…] for Kai, 27, and Franz, 26, a simple shop is almost impossible because there are dozens of other people getting involved with the decision making.
They have both been diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder , formally known as multiple personality disorder, and between them have over 400 personas, called ‘alters’.
There is no telling when alters will appear and they can be male, female, young or old and have accents from all over the world, each with their ownbackstoryy.
[…] Eventually, Franz’s alter Damien emerges and cooks them a meal. Sometimes the couple have gone a whole day without eating because the wrong alters are present.
You know, when I said DID would be the next frontier of the oppressed, I WAS JOKING.
1. Sweden, yes!
In Sweden’s Preschools, Boys Learn to Dance and Girls Learn to Yell – New York Times 24.03.2018
Science may still be divided over whether gender differences are rooted in biology or culture, but many of Sweden’s government-funded preschools are doing what they can to deconstruct them. State curriculum urges teachers and principals to embrace their role as social engineers, requiring them to “counteract traditional gender roles and gender patterns.”
It is normal, in many Swedish preschools, for teachers to avoid referring to their students’ gender — instead of “boys and girls,” they say “friends,” or call children by name.[…]
Exactly how this teaching method affects children is still unclear.
One of the few peer-reviewed efforts to examine the method’s effects, published last year in the Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, concluded that some behaviors do go away when students attend what the study called “gender-neutral” preschools.
For instance, the children at these schools do not show a strong preference for playmates of the same gender, and are less likely to make assumptions based on stereotypes. Yet, the scientists found no difference at all in the children’s tendency to notice gender, suggesting that may be under a genetic influence.
