Money sucks the life out of Life.
While folks argue about what is life, Life has become a fucking clown show.
It’s the conquering aristocracy who calculate their conceptions to the sky clock.
Normal folk had sex. And had sex, maybe even daily, maybe even from puberty to death. And the women drank tea each month until they decided not to anymore. Then they had a baby. Worked for centuries.
Then came in The Nobles. The Church. The State. The Medics. Not necessarily in that order. All there in order to provide protection.
That is, each from the other.
When the nobles, the church, the state, the medics, decided the peasants were having too many babies, or too much sex, or too much leisure, they stepped in. In order to provide protection.
And then when they needed more soldiers to fight in their future battles, or more souls on the lands they just conquered, they dictated to their peasants, “Have more babies for our nation’s-religion’s-tribe’s greatness!”
And when they decided once again there were too many babies they dictated to their peasants, “Your babies will be cursed with the plague!” That’s the modern equivalent of “Your babies must be sterilized!” Or, “Your germ-factory children are killing Grandma!”
Or, “Global climate change is caused by overpopulation!”
In the meantime they kill off all the witches who know all the safe brews. Always, in order to provide protection.
They cry about the horrors of unplanned pregnancy! Or, the horrors of killing God’s creation! In tandem. In concert.
They leave out the facts. A woman could potentially have approximately 1, 233 children in her lifetime, according to God. That’s an approximation, of course.
A man, good heavens, we’d need a mathematician to calculate that! Harems exist for a reason.
Everything we know about human reproduction originates in animal husbandry. And it’s absolute nonsense when science and culture claim that all women in a tribe will cycle together with the moon.
What sort of evolutionary sense does that even make?
The ‘Red Tent’ was always about the tea.
