Seven Essays by Kurt Johmann

The below seven essays were written by me in the years 1999 thru 2003, and they are still relevant today. Just one disclaimer by me: The American Culture essay’s strident denouncement of American imperialism may make some readers jump to the conclusion that I am a leftist in my politics, but overall I would say that I’m more of a rightist than a leftist, depending how these terms are defined. For example, I voted for Trump in 2016 because of his stated nationalist policies, and in the eyes of many that makes me a rightist.

For offline reading on your computer, all seven essays, including this page, are in a zip file that you can download.

Note: In 2017 I have placed each of these seven essays in the public domain, and there’s a statement to that effect at the bottom of each essay.

  Unschooling: Self-Directed Learning is Best

In many countries in the world, children are forced by law to attend school for many years. Most parents cooperate, because they have already been propagandized by the government, schools, and media, to believe that children must attend school for their own benefit. However, there is an alternative in many countries, including America, and that alternative is known as homeschooling. Among the different ways to do homeschooling, there is the teaching method known as unschooling.

Nothing offers more freedom to children and adolescents than the freedom to control their own learning. The unschooling method maximizes this freedom.

This essay deals with forced schooling in America, the hidden purpose of this forced schooling, and the homeschooling and unschooling alternative.

   
  Understanding America’s Drug War

So much has already been written by others on this subject. My focus in this essay is to show how the Drug War makes sense from the standpoint of empire: it serves the American empire.

In this essay I briefly cover the peripheral subject of AIDS. Back in the 1980s, AIDS got a tremendous amount of publicity from the American media as a sexually transmitted virus-caused disease. I was ignorant then, and I believed the media garbage. In 1998 I read Dancing Naked in the Mind Field by Kary Mullis, who is a chemist famous for having invented a method to duplicate sections of DNA. His book had a chapter on AIDS, and what he said about AIDS was all new to me, because until then I had only heard the standard American-media explanation for AIDS. After learning from that book, I read more widely on the subject, including Inventing the AIDS Virus by Peter Duesberg, which I quote from in this essay.

   
Male Circumcision is Harmful The Psychological Harm of Male Circumcision

This essay has these sections:

  • The Standard American Circumcision: What it Destroys
  • Mutilated Men have Difficulty Understanding the Sexual Damage
  • Blaming Mother
  • Diminished Body Image and Reduced Self-Esteem
  • Circumcision Makes Anal Intercourse Attractive
  • Sexual Mutilation Shifts its Victims in a Negative Direction
   
  Monotheism, Imperialism, and Genital Mutilation

This essay outlines the connection between monotheism and imperialism, and it explains the reason for monotheism’s close association with genital mutilation.

The Monotheism and Genital Mutilation section makes clear that male genital mutilation (aka circumcision) damages and diminishes the sexual experience for the men who are mutilated, and also for women when they have intercourse with mutilated men.

I myself am a victim of genital mutilation. I was mutilated (circumcised) by the American empire when I was three days old.

   
  See also:
  1. My discussion of the reasons for male genital mutilation (aka circumcision) by the American empire, is in the Wearing the American Brand: Male Circumcision section in my American Culture essay.

  2. In the For American Parents section in my Unschooling: Self-Directed Learning is Best essay, I warn American parents about the damage that male circumcision does, and that they may be pressured in the hospital to have it done to their newborn son.

  3. In the 12th edition of my book A Soliton and its owned Bions (Awareness and Mind), in footnote 130 in section 9.6 Orgasm, I cite evidence that male circumcision lessens the orgasm experience. (Note: this footnote has been in my book since the 9th edition, which was published March 2004 at my old website www.johmann.net. The title of my book for all editions prior to the 12th edition is The Computer Inside You.)

   
Science Big-Bang Bunk

The belief that the universe began roughly 15 billion years ago, in a Big Bang, is widespread. Is this belief correct? According to an observational astronomer, Halton Arp, the answer is no.

Perhaps the British free-thinker, Raeto West, said it best: “I regard the Big Bang as a creation myth for our time.”

This essay debunks the Big-Bang universe, and gives a detailed analysis of how the fictional Big-Bang universe serves its paymaster, the American empire.

   
  Debunking the Ice Age

In this essay I recount my own experience as I try to arrive at a correct understanding of the Ice Age. Is the Ice Age real? My conclusion is that the Ice Age is a fiction, that serves the American empire.
