You hear it all the time, "I'm an old-fashioned woman", "I'm an old-fashioned man." Why are people proud of that?

To me, "old-fashioned" simply means one adheres to a previous version of matrix programming.

Those who think that being "old-fashioned" is something to be proud of generally seem to think that people were more moral in the past. Therefore, holding onto the morals and values of the past is commendable.

When I think of "old-fashioned" values, the Dred Scott decision comes to mind.


The court held that Scott was not free based on his residence in either Illinois or Wisconsin becausehe was not considered a person under the U.S. Constitution–in the opinion of the justices, black people were not considered citizens when the Constitution was drafted in 1787. According to Taney, Dred Scott was the property of his owner, and property could not be taken from a person without due process of law.

That's the epitome of "old-fashioned" values to me.

Why are people proud to identify with things like that?

"Old-fashioned" values and morals were not better than that of today. It's simply a previous version of matrix programming.

I believe the duty of all of us is to eliminate all matrix programming from our lives. That is the only path to freedom in my opinion.

That's your perspective, not necessarily theirs.

People tend to think that things were better in their day on a personal level. When they say "Old Fashioned" what they mean is "Not like the scum of Today".

The problem is that they're blind to the fact that the same scum were there in their day as well.

I'm Just an old Fashioned woman means I'm not a whore like women are now. But there were plenty of whores back then also.

I'm on old fashioned guy means I'm not a rude jerkoff like men are today. But there were plenty of jerkoff guys then too.

People are deluded into thinking they're special and better than others. They aren't. They're different but not special or better. Just different.

some would consider me old fashioned for pretty much only drinking water even though their are ten million syrup beverages and beers to choose from. I will stick with the beverage that has worked since the beginning of time for all life on Earth. Anyone who wants to call that old fashioned, well by all means, it won't offend me.

I for one would rather live in the past than to be stuck in this s*** hole that we call the present.

The only path to freedom is free market, free labour, free ecomony and free justice.

Because in the old days people had values, more values than you actually see today, we have so much more education available to us than in the old days, but still, people do so much more stupid sh*t now, than before.

You seem to be too young(speculative on my part) to understand old fashion from an older persons point of view. At one time life was about family and work. Church (no longer christian), country and loving your neighbor.

We had officer friendly. I used to go to a drive in theater where a cop worked off duty. We drank when I was 14 -15 and all he did was keep us in control and make sure we didn't get in trouble. Walked to the store at night and didn't lock our doors.

Then LBJ's welfare came into effect. As I see it...it changed the US.

life really used to be so different here.

I like referring to myself as an "Old Fashioned" insurance broker. People who want the personal touch, instead of working through a call-center, appreciate the "Old Fashioned" face-to-face method, when quite a bit of money is at stake.

I'm honestly trying to wrap my head around the obtuse belief you just posted. First off, being old fashioned doesn't mean what you think it means, that much is obvious. Secondly, the only "matrix programming" that exists is what you yourself "program" yourself to believe. We have already broken our bonds so to speak. Those who wish to adhere to old ideologies do so in rejection of the new.

Remember, "just because it's old doesn't mean it's outdated".

For some things it is good, like carwemust's example. But for most, it is not good and makes little sense.

You are right.

I think you answered it in your own question.... our experience was gained via perception through an earlier more basic version of the control matrix.
The cage is about us..... its just earlier cages was more akin to a chicken coop...... now its more like a concrete bunker with a keyhole for your perception.

It's the view point of "traditional values".

For example a traditional belief held in America is that divorce rates were lower "back in the day".

While there was a divorce surge in to 70s and 80s it's over and yet the myth is still around now.

Also per capita divorce rates "back in the day" were very comparable to today. I say per capita because...


Divorce Rates from 1900-1930

While divorce rates still were not that high compared to later years, divorce began to slowly increase. It's important to note that many places didn't even keep track of divorce statistics until the turn of the century, which may have caused at least some of the increase in the overall divorce rates. Comparatively, divorce rates during the early 1900s were still low because you could not obtain a divorce without proving significant cause of abuse, adultery, or abandonment.


I mean even...


In 1992 I critiqued the panic over growing family diversity. My skepticism about the doomsayers has since been proven correct. Despite the continuing rise in unwed births since 1994, juvenile crime rates have fallen by 60 percent. Domestic violence is also down 60 percent. Parents today spend more time with their children than in 1965.


A good read on this specific topic here.

I guess my point is that often traditional values are based around nostalgia and little else.

The term is often used by a person's memory of events, usually in a better light, as 'how things once were'
...easier times to read.

I was raised by my grandparents, depression era children in thier own right. Many of thier values I posess today, I could call my self 'old fashion' in many ways I think/process vs. what I saw growing up in comparision through today...the values of personal trust and honor, knowing a person by thier word, trust in a hand-shake, promise and a true value of family, how to treat a woman and what a wife means, children learn from the family as much as the parents, always be involved in your childrens education, support family...etc. all of which simply does not exist as they once did...in thier mind and mine as well.

That said, that period and some ideals will never mesh with mine or thoughts of today in any way. There wil always be crosses in eras and generations, but the afore mentioned above abbriviated values are rare in the United States today. Spoiled baby boomers and old hippies have left a deep negative mark in history via governement and eduacation. (that is another thread on its own)



to me, "old-fashioned" simply means one adheres to a previous version of matrix programming.


You lost me here. Matrices come in many forms: One, two, three, four dimensions and a theoretical fith. Behind each variable or constant in the mentioned possible matrices is a Tableau and those drill further and further down as well...

Old fashioned; memories of better days. Not written history, a human tern.

my 2 cents

No. The media just helps to show what was always there and magnifies it.
