    Teleios evaluated societal measures that influenced wellbeing in the European states converting to Protestantism during the Reformation (29 European territories between 1323-1772), which involved a more serious study of scripture in each country's vernacular language, as well as salvation based purely on faith. Religious tolerance increased following conversion to a Protestant country or duchy. Further, the Bible became available in the vernacular language in each case where it previously was limited to the Latin vulgate. These compelling data indicate that countries and duchies in Europe that converted to Protestantism during the Reformation provided additional benefits to their society that may...

    Christianity is the foundation of our Western Society. However, some deny its historical and current benefits. Teleios evaluated societal measures influencing wellbeing in religious groups immigrating for greater religious freedom from Europe to the 13 British colonies that would become the USA. Teleios tested the hypothesis if living in a freer society and being able to express the Christian religion improved potential measures for wellbeing. We found strong evidence that Christians who immigrated from Europe developed societies built upon biblically based principles that offer enhanced educational, governmental, religious and economic benefits. Such societies furnish their citizens the opportunity to live...

    Teleios compared Native American tribes versus American colonial settlements to determine societal structure that would potentially affect wellbeing. We found that for government structure all tribes and colonial settlements had an identified leader in each case. However, colonial settlements more often possessed an associated bureaucracy to help administrate the region. In addition, colonial settlements typically developed identifiable cities with organizational signs like local government, farms, businesses, trade, centers of worship, public works (roads, bridges, port facilities) and education, which were not apparent in native tribes. Christian religion among the colonies in each case encouraged peace whereas the tribal religion was...

    Teleios examined the histories of European tribes in the early Middle Ages, from 300 years before to 300 years after conversion to Nicaean Christianity. We found marked statistical improvements in tribal society in each measure following conversion to Christianity. Tribes were changed into an identifiable state with borders and demonstrated an organized national defense with generally humane treatment of prisoners. Diplomacy efforts and economic trade between states became common. In addition, there was commonly a secular or church-based bureaucracy to help administrate the kingdom. Public works and public help projects commonly were established. In summary, following Christianization tribal-based populations developed...
  • Christianity is great for society! Part 1

    Teleios found that countries that are most free not only demonstrate better average wellbeing, but are associated with numerous economic, legal, security, health, and educational measures associated potentially with enhanced wellbeing for the entire population. Further, freer countries are much more likely to be Christian. In contrast, countries which persecute Christians are associated with poorer measures for freedom and wellbeing for the entire population. In summary freedom in Christianity is good for society in promoting a healthy population. Read more at https://teleiosresearch.com/effect-perecution-country-freedom/.

    Claremont Review of Books ^ | 08/12/20 | Angelo Codevilla
    The Americans who confess other people’s racism absolve themselves inexpensively by a moral mechanism common to humanity: the more I profess to hate evil, the more I showcase my own goodness. Such confessions, however, have a particular history of tragedy in Christian civilization. Again and again over the centuries, persons who have imagined themselves cleansed by ritual confessions have believed themselves elevated above the rest of humanity and, hence, entitled to oppress or even annihilate those around them. Today’s self-purifiers, arms outstretched in supine submission, who then countenance violence against persons, property, and cultural symbols, are mostly unwitting protagonists in...
  • What happens when riots are a normal part of life?

    Borepatch ^ | 8/7/2020
    Despite the desperate attempts by the increasingly irrelevant media to call them "peaceful protests", they are riots and they're occurring in most of America's large cities. Either order will be restored or we will see the re-emergence of what we've seen throughout history when life is precarious. While history is out of fashion and no longer taught in school, the lessons of history are clear - the Gods of the Copybook Headings did not get their name by accident. So what happens when people live precariously, under continual threat of violence? They flee to safer places. This is an entrance...

HAVE WE REACHED A POINT OF NO RETURN IN AMERICAN SOCIETY? Are we now in a time of such division and separation from each other in American Society that there’s no chance of unity, for reconciliation, nor coming together to find the simplest and most basic of common ground? Are the differences between Republican and Democrat, Liberal and Conservative, Leftist and Traditionalist, Patriot and Globalist too deep for any possible reconciliation?

    <p>Cultural suicide used to be a popular diagnosis of why things suddenly just quit.</p> <p>Historians such as Oswald Spengler and Arnold Toynbee cited social cannibalism to explain why once-successful states, institutions and cultures simply died off.</p> <p>Their common explanation was that the arrogance of success ensures lethal consequences. Once elites became pampered and arrogant, they feel exempt from their ancestors’ respect for moral and spiritual laws like thrift, moderation and transcendence.</p>
  • Media and Tech Elites Flee Their Own Political Policies in California

    Realtors report that “tech workers and investors in the Bay Area, as well as media types from Los Angeles,” are fleeing their own political policies. This is exactly how the left-wing locusts work. They vote and vote and vote and vote Democrat until a blue state becomes unlivable, and then they swarm into a purple state like Nevada or to a former red state like Colorado, turn it blue, and the destructive cycle starts all over again. Hearing that “media types” are fleeing Los Angeles makes me want to say out loud, Well, well, well… Why in heaven’s name would...

    But viewers do seek out theaters for more lectures from beautiful multimillionaires on their racist, sexist, homophobic country. Professional sports, universities and the motion picture industry all know that what they are doing is bad for business. But they still believe they are rich and powerful, and thus invulnerable. They also are ignorant of history and cannot be persuaded that they are destroying themselves. At this late date, all that matters is that the country itself learns from these suicidal examples and heals itself. If the U.S. is not to become an extinct Easter Island, it must rediscover a respect...

    Covid-19 continues to unleash economic havoc across the world. The financial destruction being caused by the pandemic is shattering already fragile household budgets. In the deep levels of this fog, Millennials continue to face extra layers of pressure from this crisis. This has come in the form of massive levels of student debt, a higher proportion of gig work and retail work, and ultimately no financial cushion of wealth. While some older generations have made it a sport to bash Millennials, they forget that many decades ago a one-income household was enough to purchase a home or that you could...

    A few months ago, residents of the valley of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, worried the summer tourism season might be a dud. Now 40,000 visitors a day stream through Jackson, a town in the valley and a gateway to neighboring Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks. While that visitor count isn’t too different from previous years, July saw a string of days where the number of visitors was up over 2019 levels, according to the Jackson Hole News & Guide—a far cry from earlier this year. Closed from March 24 to May 18, the parks are now seeing hundreds of thousands...

    Malcolm X once stated that the black community’s greatest enemy was the white liberal. If he were living now, perhaps that perspective would change and narrow to white liberal women. Many of us recognize that white, educated, liberal women are becoming the enemy of any remnants of traditional culture. Over the last few years, these white, guilt-ridden women have become a force for promoting identity politics and the demonization of men. One does not see this more than in the professions of human behavior and mental health. As an East coast therapist, I have heard stories about microaggressions concerning race,...

    Teleios evaluated societal measures that might have influenced wellbeing in religious groups who immigrated for greater religious freedom from Europe to the British colonies. We found that the colonists developed societies that offered enhanced educational, governmental, religious and economic freedom. These great freedoms may have been related to biblically based concepts of the importance of the individual as well as the government’s responsibility to God and to create an orderly environment. In summary, when Christian groups seeking freedom of worship immigrated from Europe to the American colonies, they gained greater religious, economic, governmental and educational freedom and provided a better...

    The cognitive dissonance required to ignore the widening gap between the real economy and the fraud's basic machinery--speculation funded by "money" conjured out of thin air--has reached a level of denial that can only be termed psychotic. When scams start unraveling, the scammers become increasingly frantic to maintain the illusion of legitimacy and the delusion of guaranteed gains that are the lifeblood of every scam. One sure sign that the flim-flam is about to collapse is the manic rise of FOMO, fear of missing out, as the scammers jam the Ponzi scheme's stellar returns to new extremes. What greedy human...

    People with comorbidities account for 81 percent of all COVID-19 deaths in Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) disclosed to the MacIver News Service on Friday. A comorbidity refers to a person “having two or more diseases at the same time,” as described by the National Cancer Institute. If someone has both cancer and diabetes, then they are considered comorbid. If someone has kidney disease and has tested positive for the coronavirus, then they are also considered comorbid. Comorbidities sometimes do not affect each other, but in some cases, the multiple conditions could make one disease worse. DHS...

    Research shows Christianity is good for society in innumerable ways. See research at https://teleiosresearch.com/society. You can gain the benefits for yourself. It is really quite easy… four simple steps of belief! 1. Each of us has sinned; 2. God is just, requiring a punishment for sin; 3. But out of love God sent His Son, Jesus Christ who by dying on the cross, provided forgiveness of sins in taking man’s deserved punishment; 4. Therefore, by faith alone in Christ’s sacrifice for our sins and belief in His resurrection, man can gain eternal life. (Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 10:9-10, Romans 3:21-26)

    Teleios conducted a survey in primarily millennials regarding the benefits of Christian society. There were 565 responses (67% < 35 years, 60% United States). Participants noted the advantages of living in a Christian society was that it provided a stronger moral (82%) and ethical base (71%) and a greater amount of love among people (75%). In contrast, the advantages of a Christian society to government were keeping societal order (60%), maintaining individual rights (56%) and reducing corruption (54%). Summary, living in a Christian society provides many advantages to the country’s population and government in keeping a strong moral and ethical...

    H.L. Mencken, a contrarian polemicist and the consummate critic, who wrote prolifically and prodigiously from 1899 until 1948, may no longer seem relevant, but the fault would not be his. Mencken was a well-read bon vivant with a taste for Teutonic philosophy and a fidelity to immutable truth. He was also a brilliant satirist and a writer whose facility with the English idiom and grasp of intellectual history are unsurpassed. How can a phenom like Mencken appeal in our age, The Age of the Idiot? He can’t: He should, but he can’t. Henry Louis Mencken cannot appeal to the bumper...
