Father, Husband, Metal-head, and everyday man trying to make the best of life on the Dissident Right.
Category: Dissident Right
Often involves subjects and topics on either history, culture, worldview, and identity within the greater Dissident Right sphere and regarding perspectives pertaining to it.
(Note what can be considered “Dissident Right” is large and extensive. It is essentially any view which isn’t necessarily part of mainstream conservative and considers the significance of identity in the modern digital age.)
Forney with Aurini had a recent stream on Candice Owens and her rise to prominence via “grifting” in Conservative circles. I will say that I don’t hold quite the antipathy toward Owens as others do and I specifically appreciate her role in helping to confirm what many of us already knew about Zoey Quinn – that she was harassing herself and making a virtue signaling false flag racket with it.
It however brings up an overall trend that’s been happening in the last few years and what I’m going to label as “Dissident Appropriation”. We saw it with the anti-feminists on YouTube, the Skeptic “community”, various members of the Red Pill communities, and in the Dissident Right in general.
What did we see?
Even in the Dissident Right as well as other associated spheres, you’ll notice there’s a crop of people – often anonymous or semi anonymous – trying to create a name for themselves. It happened with the manosphere and now it’s happening throughout the Dissident Right at large.
People coming in to make a quick buck and trying to create a product – not a bad thing necessarily – but with little actual ORIGINAL thoughts and ideas. They just rehashed what had been circling in the various spheres from the abstract and intellectual writings of reactionaries to the Red Pill shock jock larger-than-life style bloggers.
It’s not just tradthots like Laura Loomer or anti-feminists like Shoe0nhead who are parroting Dissident ideas to a thirsty male audience, but “entrepreneurs” and PUA types who throw out a few pieces of common knowledge with a polished looking website in hopes of getting money from people who already are likely down on their luck.
Want to charge people for a boot camp? How about “Dating” advice? There’s always self-improvement that involves making tons of money by writing edgy blog content because clearly, that is an actual feasible thing. You don’t really need an actual job, nor the skills and experience that comes with having one for your future. Just buy their stuff and girls and lots of success will come your way.
That valuable experience, contacts, friends and network created by working various jobs – no matter how menial apparently doesn’t matter and isn’t needed. All you need is a blog and a phone. Now some of you have been told all about this a few years back, but there’s a new wave of subversive elements who want to talk the talk but not walk it.
Yea, life is hard and while we can blame feminism, SJWs, etc for it. instead of any real solutions however, here’s some self-help with some “alpha” like words and phrases thrown in to make you feel like it something much different.
Shysters, Hucksters, and Infiltrators
This feeding of false hope is horrible and despicable on a moral level – especially any that laments losing core Western values and whatever is left of that. How can you build or rebuild social trust and social capital when your own sphere is being subverted to the point of that trust being destroyed?
What the hell are we doing?
Deliberately feeding false hope and supposed “freedom” to live any way you want to susceptible broken shattered men and teenagers is shameful as is avoiding alternative theories that newbies may want to consider. But the something 50% of what’s left of the Manosphere selling supposed self-improvement don’t care. Encouraging hedonism and narcissism sells apparently as well as sex does.
It’s hard enough for freelance journalists and real entrepreneurs to make money, but somehow kids writing about their Tinder experiences with your hosting site from a beach in Thailand is going to generate enough income for them to become financially independent and able to start a family if they wish?
With what contacts and network? (Someone on the stream mentioned earlier makes the point most of these people pushing this have already established passive income streams – like owning property they rent out – which they of course don’t disclose because their writing and books is making them all the cash.)
People criticize Matt Forney all the time, but he took down most of his books because he couldn’t in good conscious sell stuff that isn’t applicable to the internet world in 2018. Who else does that? This is how you can tell how much someone cares about the people they want to engage with.
You wonder how much these other people really care about the supposed community there are “creating” content for. Do they really care if their “consulting” and advice ends up destroying your life and potential future? I’m starting to think they really don’t. Sure, don’t go to college and get a worthless degree, but move overseas and everything is suddenly going to vastly improve without a real passive income stream?
What about your future? Don’t look toward getting a wife and building a career as a wife and children will hold you back from being a lifetime bachelor sailing around the world banging 100s of foreign women – as will a stable 9-5 job. It’s no secret much of modern society is arrayed against young men, but these infiltrators and hucksters are adding more pain to their misery and disguising it as self-help.
Of course these hucksters appeal to your inner “alpha” in an attempt to persuade you that being a true Machiavellian is something that you really want. Take for example the advocates of the Dark Triad which want you to fork over 300$ for some kind of uber Volcano lair meetup so you can feel like a man by being in the presence of “supposedly” top alpha men. Iron may sharpen iron, but is there any iron here?
If you put on that mask for so long, do you become that monster eventually? It’s a significant question and you need to ask yourself if it’s worth the price – considering you might be selling yourself, soul, and future livelihood for something that may have no material, spiritual, and measurable payoff.
Unfortunately, these are elements in the “Dissident Appropriation” in which that occurs. It’s often in the form of people looking to create a niche for themselves, purely for the sake and feeling of being “counter-cultural” because there’s no Patreon dollars of real controversy to draw attention to make the shekels if you are parroting the usual mainstream views.
You end up with a Dirty Dozen of denizens and not knowing what they really think, if they are some kind of subversive elements, or if they have any loyalty to the people and spheres they are trying to influence. From what we’ve seen with recent Bloodsports and the implosion of the remaining Alt-Right, many of these people seem to be trying to fly close to the sun to attain maximum exposure and are willing to backstab and destroy anyone in their way.
So much for a stable foundation to rebuild the West or present any kind of feasible foundations to stand upon. You start to wonder if they ever really had those intentions in the first place.
Granted there will always be jealousy of those who make a name for themselves and get “recognition” and those who don’t – regardless of what community you associate with. Furthermore to be fair, what man doesn’t want to create a name for himself wherever and whatever way he can?
Well let’s examine.
The Cost of Fame
A serious question that I wonder if people ask themselves is, “Do you really want all this attention?” Do you really want to be a leader and deal with the actual vast and harsh burdens and responsibilities that come with it?
What about the cost to your family and any possible future that involves a stable financial footing? How much do you really care about those closest around you who arguably are the most important?
As we saw with the ROK Meetup insanity back in 2016, there comes a point where controversy and attention becomes a negative thing that has real cost to your family and livelihood. We point this out and these deviants who engage consistently in the dark arts of Dissent Appropriation call us cucks. Yea, it’s real cuckish to want to build a stable future for your family and friends.
Internet fame might be fun, but it’s also a curse and if have a family or hope to have one, it becomes quite a bit harder when you are trying to build any kind of family and legacy in order to become any kind of “leader.” Again there comes a point when you end up with too much recognition from all the wrong people and it ends up greatly hindering yourself.
This isn’t 2005. Anyone and everyone is a google search away from a damning internet post or ill worded rant torpedoing their career or imploding their network of contacts built over 20 years. Yea sure, maybe they should have chosen better “friends” and contacts, but that takes a huge amount of time to do. It doesn’t happen overnight. (Neither do the alternative platforms those in the Dissident Right are trying to build.)
Often some of these “leaders” remind me of feminists who want all of the perks but none of the responsibilities that come with leadership. It ends up boiling down to accepting praise for what goes right and gets attention and blaming others for what goes wrong and blows up in your face.
That’s not leadership.
Leaders are front and center. They don’t just write the walk from their anonymous blogs. They live that walk everyday and show people how it’s done. When things go to hell, they clean it up and don’t deflect the blame. The buck stops with them and their lives are the example.
This isn’t a game or a scene that you can simply stop attending. Lives, careers, and people’s ability to not live paycheck to paycheck are at stake here. Once people have put their names forward, they are susceptible to all the deviants and viciousness of SJW types gunning for their jobs and looking to make hell on earth for the lives of their family members.
If you are going to be some sort of leader, you better be prepared to help your “followers” deal with the shitstorms that come their way due to your influence and guidance. Being a real leader of any kind – assuming any level of morality — means that you don’t just take their money and run – you face the music with/for them with that said money.
Jason Kessler ran away and is hiding, Spencer disappeared, and Cantwell acted like a tough guy on TV to Vice, while later crying on YouTube once he realized he was in real trouble. Totally white ubermench alpha right there. Instead of being self-proclaimed smart tacticians and strategists, they all ended up being indirectly responsible for that lady’s death – regardless of what you think of her and specifically in the eyes of the American public.
These “leaders” couldn’t even police their own – regardless of false flags or not – and now ensured that the Alt-Right label was left to actual Nazis and foaming white supremacist types on the Daily Stormer. It’s hard to tell people you aren’t Nazis when people with the damn flags show up or end up committing murders, because actual Nazis weren’t denounced hard or extensively enough. (Seriously, who the hell let’s Nazis show up to their events?)
Furthermore, consider the tactical failure in having a “rally” there in a VERY hostile city with a government and police force that basically did everything to ensure a riot and violence would ensue. Of course they weren’t going to play fair and restrain AntiFa from attempting to kill whoever there they deemed a fascist.
Why the hell didn’t they plan a rally somewhere that WAS NOT in a liberal stronghold. Sure, you might want to protect a statue, but was it worth the shattered lives of the guys holding tiki torches who can’t find regular employment now? “Blood and soil” doesn’t matter that much if you can’t afford to live. (How the awful optics of this evaded the minds of Alt-Right leadership, I have no idea.)
All this over a damn statue.
Now they’ve found that out the hard way. While AntiFa and all the rest of their slack jawed deviant supporters will rejoice, it just adds to the list of broken young men who now have even a harder life then before and will ironically make them even radicalized in the process.
Guilt by association. He made have been on the “right”, but the penalty for being near this rally has literally been fatal. Sure some henious assholes on leftist sites will rejoice, but who will comfort his family and friends? It’s not just maddening, but it’s depressingly sad.
Again, this dude essentially lost his life over a damn statue.
One major criticism I heard of Richard Spencer – who isnt really the “Hitler” people make him out to be – and people like him is that they enjoyed the attention and the recognition of being “organizers”, but had little to offer both in terms of responsibility and aid when the Charlottesville debacle occurred.
“After the Enoch doxxing, after Charlottesville and now after the implosion of TWP, there simply is no fooling anyone. The illusion has been shattered. “Alt-right” is just a pompous synonym for white nationalist, and nothing more. The psychotic mania among the press that for some time drove them nuts about how the next-door neighbor kid drawing cartoon frogs might secretly be a member of an “alt-right” fifth column waiting for the right moment to ethnically cleanse minorities, has since dissipated and mellowed as the specificity of the alt-right has been made clear.
Andrew Anglin and weev no longer LARP as neo-Nazis, but as American nationalist MAGAmen, in response to this shift. With no enigma left to it (and it never got to the point of developing any real organizational capacity), the alt-right is now a tabloid media cash cow for the ADL and the SPLC to scare their donors into handing over those sweet shekels.”
I couldn’t have put it any better. Stop following people who don’t care about you or anyone else. Mike Enoch literally destroyed his life even further divorcing his Jewish wife – so he could prove his Jew blaming rants were legit. (Disclosure to you goyim, I found out I’m 3% European Jewish apparently.)
Now he’s alone and removed from a woman who seems to have loved him for some internet trolls and LARPers who don’t give a shit. That’s not a life that you want emulate. Unless the leaders of a movement are willing to sacrifice themselves for you – like true leaders do – then you are wasting your time and your future.
These same people are still around and lurking in the Dissident Right looking for new targets and people to deceive and profit from – either for the sake of creating a name and recognition for themselves or for a sin as old as time – greed and the money that comes from it.
We need to ask ourselves, how much damage are we doing to people vs helping them? What kind of identity are we forming? Yes, we know feminism and the excess of Modernism had wreaked havoc on the foundations of society and made it a hell of time to be a young straight male looking to succeed in life.
However are we just adding false hope to that miserly brew that they’ve already been thrust into? We need to make sure people know the “risks”, while giving them as much advice, info, and knowledge from our mistakes and successes as we can. If you become like Machiavelli, you might end up in a prison of your own – or someone else’s making just like him.
We are talking about fire and it burns – maybe for life if you end up with a mindset and worldview based on treachery, deceit, and a will to power with no moral restrictions. Your soul can and is at stake when you expose it to this kind of lifestyle.
Perhaps at the core of this, one alternate explanation is the most depressing one; that some of the people being attracted to the Dissident Right by shysters aren’t being “taken in.” They are willing participants who want to lie to themselves instead of put in the hard and long time to build something stable for their futures.
“It is true that the Western heritage is in decline all across our world, as our numbers shrink relative to the growth of Asia, Africa, and Latin America, and as people from those regions move unopposed into what we conceive of as our “regions”—and as we ourselves become more absorbed into a bland, universalist, interchangeable consumer culture.” – Introducing the Fifth Political Theory
The Rotting Stink Clawing Away At Us
Author’s Note: This article will be updated and edited consistently as I focus my thoughts and ideas as time goes on. I’m not an intellectual nor an amazing writer. I’m just some guy trying to flush out what plagues our modern existence. Thoughtful genuine critique is welcome. This long post is divided into two parts with the second focusing on ideas to forge a new mythos and identity.
If you want to fix the external, you need to start with the internal. Something is wrong with modern society. You can feel it in your bones. We don’t know who we are, but we do know who we aren’t supposed to be as everything that was once held dear is targeted by denizens for marginalization and eventual destruction.
It almost feels like a sinister X- Files like conspiracy in which our souls and spirit have been stolen away. WE can smell the rot in their absence, and we know its more than just the curse of a bizarre post-modernism expertly mixed with Marxism that’s been chipping away our foundations.
Almost everyone regardless of their political affiliations can see that the world around is falling apart. We are reaping the seeds we’ve sown from the French Enlightenment to the Post-Christian West. Our politicians and elites are in a ruling class of their own shaping laws and society in their image for their benefit with no God to hold them accountable except the mob like masses who’ve they managed to curtail, placate, and manipulate with modernity’s version of Rome’s bread and circuses.
They plan to build their own God in silicon gadget form sustained, worshiped, and supported by the mindless and soulless entertained smart phone interchangeable zombies who have been birthed into a lonely digital world outside of the normal familial boundaries. We are to become cogs in their newly created earth.
Their image always remains one of refinement while ours remains that of peasants who cling to our backwards views while being in constant need of guidance from our elite better. Instead of viewing us cogsas fellow citizens, they view us as Kulaks that need to be “re-educated” and cleansed of “racism” and other ists and phobias – under their diverse, woke, and privilege checking vice grip of course.
Angelo M Codevilla makes this point astutely regarding the growing divide between the attitude of our ruling class and the rest of us:
Its attitude is key to understanding our bipartisan ruling class. Its first tenet is that “we” are the best and brightest while the rest of Americans are retrograde, racist, and dysfunctional unless properly constrained. How did this replace the Founding generation’s paradigm that “all men are created equal”?
We know they look down on us, because we aren’t equal. We sheep are distracted by our own internal squabbles that always seem to go from one cultural battle to the other. It never ends, but the same small group of people always seem to win.
While we fight tooth and nail, the ruling class and their well paid servants and connected media groupies dine on fine wine in DC suburbs and coastal penthouses. Love or hate Trump, you can’t help but notice how the establishment and media function like a zerg hivemind with talking points that wreak of coordination.
Sure, some identity groups that shriek loud enough are thrown the scraps from the ruling class, but there are only so many from the table to go around and they always seem to benefit the rulers in the long run. Even the scraps don’t seem to go far.
The stimulus bills of the last decade weren’t shared with the common man, but rather they were given to banks and financial institutions to big to fail. “Tax cuts” and supposed trickle down economics didn’t stop people from losing their homes. No scraps for the rest of us in our favelas.
College degrees and higher education were fervently propagated like dogmatic cult with the sermon that every American needed to take on massive college loan debt in worthless fields to snag white collar jobs. Work with your head and not your hands, as we all belong in a cubicle working long hours – differences among us be damned. Instead we were banished to Target and Starbucks and told we needed more useless degrees.
Obamacare was supposed to fix our health insurance problems. It helped some, but screwed many people over in the process and didn’t eliminate in-state monopolies and in the end poured money into the coffers of health insurance companies who once again get the best handful from the cookie jar while we are left with crumbs.
“Nowadays, the members of our ruling class admit that they do not read the laws. They don’t have to. Because modern laws are primarily grants of discretion, all anybody has to know about them is whom they empower. “
Trumps election and Bernie Sanders run was a challenge to the ruling class, but the movement that propelled them is much bigger than either man. It is a backlash to the elites in every aspect of society from media to Wallstreet to academia which treat us with contempt because we aren’t sheltered and we see the negative effects first hand of things like unlimited immigration – either legal or illegal.
People know something is deeply wrong. We’ve been sacrificed on the altar of globalization for the profit of the ruling class and those who aspire to become part of them. It’s reduced people to moving parts in a machine which is highly unstable and stripped them of their identities as it shoves them into shopping malls, Amazon orders, and smartphone addicts. We have become cogs in a machine.
Our cultural, ethnic, and long held traditional identities have been attacked and shattered, both by the ruling elites and by the other “minority” groups who have been turned into useful cannon fodder making assimilation less and less possible. People are wandering in the wilderness clinging to lingo like diversity, equality, and multiculturalism and wondering why it’s not working. It was never meant to. Their welfare was deliberate sacrificed in the pursuit of the global “good”.
For daring to notice that the effect of a foreign group of people in large numbers – now and all throughout history – on that of their host and how they don’t “assimilate” but rather irreversibly for better or worse change a culture, people, and region makes you a Xenophobe.
Noticing that not every group has the ability to react the same way or has the capability for various tech, education, governance, and even linguistics gets you branded as a racist, regardless of observable history. Point out that this odd embrace and microphone of “alternative” lifestyles by corporations seems to be quite the capitalistic money grab and you’re a bigot.
The anger seethes through you as does a sense of betrayal.
You can see the familial social cohesion that strong masculine men bring a culture and family being systematically attacked to the point of dubbing the very concept of masculinity as toxic by people who want to destroy the Nuclear family. Why? Salvatore Degennaro at the American Conservative gives us an answer:
“Because masculine men are harder to control under tyrannical socialism. The modern beta male, on the other hand, craves socialism. This is why the left has branded masculinity as toxic: it stands as a roadblock to their endgame.”
The lust for control is what drives our elites. Over time, any variables that jeopardize that or make it more difficult must be eliminated. That’s why we hear about “Diversity” that is always biological but never ideological. To them, “diversity” actually means conformity – and there’s still too many of us free thinkers of all types who aren’t conforming to their desired mold.
More and more you will realize it was and still is simply a means to break down any dominant identities. It’s why you are bombarded with the “white supremacy” slur from the misers and privileged in academia, journalism, media, and even government when you aren’t kneeling in shame for being proud of your American ancestors, heritage, culture, and identity. Why do they keep going after your history?
The elites and ruling class know they must replace it with: (1) weak identities that will inevitably shatter from infighting (2) shattered identities that end up turning to the distractions of our modern age to cope with being miserable, depressed, and filled with anxiety from being inculcated by “activism” and an ideology built on victim-hood. Their world becomes so depressing from their obsessions that they must distract themselves with another of entertainment, vice, and materialism and of course amazon.
So what do they and us do, and where do we ALL turn?
I’ll make a bold claim: Diversity, multiculturalism, equality, and all those buzzwords are all attempts to promote certain cultures and people groups while excluding others with the malicious attempt to eventually subvert and replace them. So goes all of history with varying manifestations. People who notice this are disdainfully called xenophobes, rather than Xenophiles.
A subversion on the level of an Fringe like conspiracy slowly boils all of us frogs in it’s diverse pot. It’s ultimate goal is one is to ultimately reduce all strong and proud cultures and groups to a hive mind that think alike and most importantly consume alike. Your identity will be reduced to a shallow one that’s based on what you consume, order from Amazon, and the video games you buy.
Capitalism was supposed to be the virtuous prescription for all of our problems. While it’s the best of what we have available, many have been left behind and the alternatives they have don’t fill them with a sense of hope for the future.
In a twist of fate for most of us with libertarian and conservative leanings, we are plagued by a cold harsh unflinching capitalism run amok controlled by globalists obsessed with power and profit. That’s a sentence I never thought I would contemplate. It became our endgoal, but the endstate was one of manipulation of our inner hedonism we never considered by a narcissist population that has almost nothing in common with the that of the people who the Constitution was written for.
We will be promised “liberty” and freedom” which will involve concepts like open borders, legalized drugs, changing our gender at will, and ramming a dildo into anyone we wish. Lacking is anything substantial that can actually develop an identity that is rooted intrinsically at the family and community level building social cohesion that can survive and thrive.
Of course those who are permanently banished to just above the poverty line need to suck it up, either in the name of progress or globalized vulture capitalism. In the name of the Almighty dollar, we serfs can live in a dystopian Darwinist environment where global capitalism is the ultimate moral creed.
The more “diverse” your workforce, the easier the access to interchangeable labor pool who can be distracted from getting better wages by being pitted against each other over the slightest of differences or disagreements. Current popular notions of diversity deliberately prevent and ostracized diverse viewpoints and worldviews. Everything else seems to be “interchangeable”, just as cogs are meant to be.
Even Marx for his many failings understood this, just not the scourge of cultural Marxism he would lay bitter foundations for. Social cohesion that enables any particular group to be resilient and defiant about being shortchanged by elite globalists must be silenced, demonized, and tarred with society’s newest scarlet label.
Opponents to this deliberate disruption to social cohesion are dubbed racist and xenophobes so that the immigrants who can’t support themselves become dependent on a bureaucracy whose feeding hand they will never be able to bite, stuck in a way of life and lifestyle. Their families, identity, and culture will of course be targeted for subjugation and ultimate diffusion into the hive-mind.
Education is to be driven with the goal to eliminates critical thought and logic in exchange for a mindset to shape children into drones for the workforce that will never question authority. Efforts are made to negate the meddling of parents to interfere with it to make sure children have the “right” influences.
In the mean time we cogs will exist in our just safe enough, yet crumbling ghettos while one set of laws is applied to us and another for the ruling class in their ivory towers, walled off neighborhoods, and mogul lairs.
It’s already happening in California where the rich in their squalid safety view us disdainfully from afar, their influence and power reaping rewards for them, but division and struggle for us. In their plutocracy, they have become the new aristocrats having such little in common with us peasants because they no longer live among us.
This occurs through distracting talk about “white supremacy” while the elite and ruling classes develop a new supremacy for themselves and their friends while the rest of us squabble with each other for scraps at their table. If they really cared about social justice, they’d live in the crime ridden streets of Baltimore, but they don’t as some progressives are finally starting to notice.
The poor SJWs who end up eating their own have had their useful fanaticism turned toward targets who have no access to the levers of power. Look back through history, and you will notice this pattern; poor saps are eventually turned on and given as plunder to the new saps on the block.
Sins Of The Past
In the current year, pun intended, there is a raging desire by the ruling elites – both intellectual and political to remove anything that honors or respects the sacrifices of men and heroes past. Many a memorial and statue has been deemed unacceptable.
While a definite distraction, it’s a particularly devastating one that separates a people or group from their history and forges a new identity with no past roots, traditions, structures, or institutions to create a stable foundation.
The founding mythos seeped in centuries of various traditions is deliberately shirked in favor of a new identity that has no ties to the past. It’s an identity with an end goal of you being an interchangeable consumer cog who works till the day you die. Alternatives are not allowed because racism. Or another ist, ism, or phobe. Don’t even dare to think outside the box.
Anything that reminds us cogs of our previous roots and the identities of our ancestors must be removed as well as demonized. Our heroes aren’t allowed to be flawed Saints. They must rather be demonized as tyrannical devilish villains. It’s a deliberately simple solution that is designed to ignore the complexity that is human nature.
Yet these particular flaws of humanity have come into prime focus with an intention for exploitation. The old bones of grievance past are to be dug up to further the distraction and lend effort to pitting “victims” against each other. In history, just about everyone is a victim. Why now though?
Neither us nor the ruling classes are dealing with an incoming Mongol Horde, nor about to be sacrificed on an Aztec altar, nor chained as a slave to a Turkish galley on the high sea, nor seeing everyone around you die of the Black plague, or wondering if your village is going to survive the incoming Viking longboats about to land.
Still we pass judgement on the victors and losers of the past for what we deem as “evils” of that time, sometimes rightfully so. Yes, objective morality exists. However much of the moral rants about past transgressions we see in our current political and cultural dialogue is best described as a diabolical form of distraction and manipulation that presents our history as well as that of the West as Us vs Them.
It’s done with the simplest dichotomy in mind so it can be utilized by anyone with a grudge, a victim complex, and a flawed character looking to exploit guilt and shame. The important and significant lessons and persons of history are instead weaponized and twisted by institutions that are supposed to be above it. This is a big deal because it has consequences in it’s impact on academic journals, media publications, and eventual government policies.
The distraction for us common folk is heightened by constant fighting on various platforms to ensure nothing really changes besides endless disingenuous virtue signaling . We remain cogs with a focus permanently distracted by twitter wars while they continue to mold us in their image. We become the blue tribe vs the red tribe all while being plundered by a foreign tribe that forces tribute from us.
Ironically those who spin the various threads of privilege, shame, guilt, and exploitation seem to come from privileged places of academia and influence and are among the more prosperous recipients in fortune from the events of past generations, yet tell the rest of us to writhe in shame and guilt of history that’s benefited them in the long run. We become their scapegoats while they retain their “privilege”.
They do this from armchairs of relative comfort and generous hindsight as they deliberately force their narrative through our lens of modern fake morality ignoring that people hundreds of years ago then were dealing with a far different world than we do now. All of the heroes and villains throughout history were seen very differently in their times then they are now.
We have hindsight. They didn’t. Genghis, Caesar, Boadicea, Xerxes , and Hirohito were all seen very differently by people at their time. Xerxes was a villain to the Greeks and Genghis a hero to the Mongols. Put simply, they were men (and women) of their time which is why we see both the good and the bad. Why can’t our esteemed scholars do the same for post-renaissance Western history?
To add to the dishonesty on historical discourse, they focus completely on the negative effects, while ignoring the positive effects that the colonization, the West, and Christianity had on the world. Suffice to say, the US wouldn’t be the superpower it is now if Europeans hadn’t come over and seized it. The Middle East and Asia would be far more advanced if not for the destruction brought by the Mongols.
Even the most educated among us would be hard pressed to find one nation, city, empire, country, or even village that hasn’t been built on bloodshed, slavery, ethnic strife and hatred, self-serving ambition, and just the base human desire to want what others have. In their zeal to reshape Western Civilization and destroy the influence of Christianity they deliberately ignore this.
When we begin to wake up momentarily, they throw some additional scraps for us to focus on. We are directed back to focus on past transgressions. Ironically they often currently start fights over who , a shocking unheard of phenomenon that has not been occurring since the beginning of human history.
The Victim Identity
Some of our heroes may be worse than others, but how far do we go in our quest to establish our identities, who we are, the history we look to for guidance and education, and the lessons that we should learn from their deeds? Who is so evil that they must be seen as an absolute villain vs who accomplished so much good that we must see them as a saint? Who should pass these judgments?
Well there is an an entire identity and complex is built on passing these judgments and their subsequent influence – one that does nothing to make the situation better. That of the Victim.
Today’s Victimis the perfect identity for pliable exploitation. It ensures adherents are always fighting to ensure that they are seen as having the worst plight in society. Of course others join the fray to prove their plight is even worse. Instead of meaningful significant improvement and the necessary cohesion to build trust in a society, they destroy that trust in and around anyone who is less of a victim.
Other victims will use their leverage to prevent improvement for those who seen as lesser victims because there are only so many scraps to go around and so much “attention” for the various victims trying to be heard. It becomes as it is today – a game of shouting, screaming, and demanding that if you are already a loser, other’s must lose even more than you already are.
Who can be a victim today?
The obvious are Native Americans, Mexicans – who conquered the native americans, Blacks who were both kidnapped and sold into slavery by Africans, Chinese treated like scum while building the railroads, LGBTIZUFJASF whatever who people didn’t want around their kids, and probably a bunch of other groups I’m forgetting about.
They’ve garnered justified sympathy, donations, activist groups, and even “insert ethnicity/race here” studies departments at major universities. However, everyone want’s a piece of the pie- even “incels”. People you didn’t even know were victims of well… everything and anything bad are coming out of the woodwork.
Now throw in a group of various poor “white” people who are addicted to opiods in towns that have had their jobs outsourced overseas who realize their Irish ancestors were slaves or their German grandparents weren’t well liked by the neighboring British expats. Or just poor white’s who’ve been left behind like every other group fighting over the scraps.
Here’s what they all have in common – being a victim. It’s the perfect identity which fights over scraps while each group digs deeper to fight to the top of the oppression pyramid while the real oppressors continue to ensure multicultural, diversity, and unlimited immigration that slowly chips away at their ability to not just live and one’s wages, but to build the most important resource off a community and society; trust. Without trust, society breaks down. That breakdown of course isn’t experience by the ruling elite in their ivory towers. It’s experienced by us cogs in the streets.
Everyone wants to be a victim, but someone has to be the oppressor to hand out the reparation spoils. In this case that designated group has been “white” people – whoever that actually is nowadays – and their sin is that of “privilege”; an illogical concept in its presupposition. But as we can now see, there is big money and influence in being a victim. Why is that?
Dwelling on past grievances, however horrific or tragic, won’t necessarily make the present or future any better. Neither does it make amends for the past – something that’s almost impossible for transgressions from generations hundreds of years ago. It will however ensure the ruling elites reign luxuriously in their Ivory towers while we yet again continue to fight for the scraps.
We must learn from the past and apply it to our future – something we continually fail to do. A primary lesson that we keep seeing in history – one that we must firmly grasp in our noggins is this; the ruling elites of a society always ensure those who might overthrow them are kept squabbling against each other. They exploit it. We keep hearing about the horrors of wealth inequality, but keep missing the mechanisms globalists and the ruling elite use to maintain their fat wallets.
This squabbling today is best seen in the artform that is Victimhood. Every one wants a piece of it. Perhaps you finally get a seat at the table and a small scrap, but in the mean time you sacrifice your soul. You emulate weakness instead of virtue, strength, and success. It’s one of the main problems that makes White Nationalism just as hollow as the social justice cult.
You CAN NOT BUILD a stable mythos, tribe, and identity that can navigate modernity, the digital age, and the smartphone addition to media and entertainment with an identity based on being a victim. Instead of going out to build a new culture, one ends up with the remaining crumbs of culture in places that don’t care about even having offspring to ensure a legacy.
The constant dwelling in “victimhood” must end, or at the very least it is something those of us on the Dissident Right should avoid like the Black plague. We don’t want those scraps or to have to lower ourselves to fighting with other groups for them.
While every group has its claim to being a victim in some part, time, or area of the world it’s not what forms their identity. Obsession to become a victim ensures a race toward the bottom. You aren’t building capital of any kind. Instead you have to destroy that of those around you to build a fake and false elevation of your own.
Yes, I understand how deep and far the course of history can inflict upon tribes, regions, and peoples. My Armenian ancestors have not forgotten their occupation under Sassanids, various Persian and Iranian conquerors, Umayyad, Abbasid, and Rashidun Arab caliphates, the Ottoman Turks, and now the Azeri Azerbajianis whose land has been Armenia’s for over a thousand years. We even suffered genocide which Armenia has never recovered from.
But what will dwelling on the past do for our families now and our children in the future? What would it accomplish? Solidarity whit fellow Armenians that would do exactly what for the GDP of the Armenia? My mother married a non-Armenian and my dad’s side of the family becomes my history, cause, and culture as well which has shaped my identity. I’m no longer just an Armenian. My European ancestors, just as my Armenian ancestors did everything they could to make my families life better than theirs.
We all must move on toward building a better future and refusing to participate in the venomous blame game that shapes so much of not just American politics, but the world. That said, I am certainly willing to listen to the plight and suffering of my brothers both in the dissident right, my faith, and those of my family friends and other spheres. It just can’t be relegated to wallowing in blaming for the past, while grabbing for scraps at the victimhood table with other “marginalized” groups.
Yes, one can’t outright dismiss real and actual lived experience if they hope to reach an accord and build community – just as our other brothers in the Faith will tell us. You can however help them progress toward a life that isn’t focused on blame while sitting down, but on actually moving forward.
Wisdom is needed and in our damaged pasts, history can teach us many lessons. All we have to do is pay attention. Nothing is new under the sun and what’s happening now certainly isn’t. Human nature however has not changed. It’s why we need to come back to lessons from heroes past to ever succeed in creating one’s for the present and future. We must build a new mythos with foundations that aren’t build on sand.
The Need For Group Identity
Everyone wants to belong. It’s human nature. We are tribal. Left, right, blue tribe, red tribe, in-group, out-group. Just like wolves, we form packs. On the playground as kids we form self-selected teams. In highschool we form cliques.Yes, we are proud of ourselves for often dumb reasons, but we need more than just ourself. Companionship.
We need each other, but not to the point where nothing makes us or those close to us unique. Whether its clubs, lodges, tribes, sports teams, women’s only salons, or nerds who shell out for Friday night Magic some people are in and others are out. That said each individual belongs to some sort of group.
Everyone wants to be included in something. We need to belong by either being included or excluded into some other groups. If you aren’t the outgoing sociable type, you become an outcast with the other outcasts. Whether willingly or not, everyone has their own kind of group that they are lumped into: Jocks. Nerds. Creeps. Trekkies. Gamers. Larpers. Hipsters. Thugs. Fashionistas. Bikers. Activists. Reformers. Blacks. Whites. Asians. Mongoids. Deplorables.
It ranges from ethnic groups, class, and racial categories to who you have loud sex with late at night. Of course members of one group often overlap with those of another group. You see some creepy activist nerds intermix fluids, flags and vegan frapes in expensive urban areas.
Yet everyone wants to be different, unique, and their very own individual hipster as they drink deeply from the reservoir of modernism. You might be dressed business casual for you job, but you are gonna have as many unique piercing and tattoos to stand out.
It’s as if many of us are stuck in a cognitive dissonance that doesn’t shatter our worldviews quite yet, because we have learned to balance it all just right without suffering that inevitable implosion which will come. Any contradictions that are too damning can always be ignored – for now until the rude awakenings begin.
Our group needs to stand out, so we humans over the last thousands of years have naturally come up with hard distinctions that mirror our nearby surroundings and geography. In today’s age of mass instant communication, those geographic boundaries have been punctured. The old family, ethnic, and culture ties have slowly been eradicated by modernity. James Kalb of Crisis Magazine makes the point in regards to the concept of the “white ethno state”:
“To add to the problem, modern life dissolves history, heritage, and inherited ways. People get processed through an increasingly centralized and bureaucratized school system. They work for large bureaucratic organizations, or for smaller concerns that are increasingly integrated with global markets. They amuse themselves with commercial pop culture and connect through electronic communications networks that ignore geography. And they’ve been subjected for years to propaganda and social policies that weaken informal connections like family, religion, and common culture.”
So what are people left with after they wake up and realize they have no identity? All around us people are floundering in the wilderness, wondering, “Who Am I?” and “Where Do I Belong?” If one can’t find an answer to those questions, their lives will likely be one of frustration, loneliness, and a desire to make those happy people around miserable.
Misery truly loves its company and miserable people will form groups where their identity is based on shared misery and a vengeance toward those who are not. Losers will attract other losers who are desperate to ensure everyone else is losing just as bad, if not more. The biggest source of misery today is an anger toward toward those who were more historically successful than others – fair or not. For the group that’s been left in the dust, there’s always a source of blame in the past to distract them from improving the future.
Of course, this has been the case for all of history, especially when geography was the primary means of how your identity was formed. Currently, many of us in America and the west are separated from those real daily manifestations of racial, ethnic, and religious attachments that had been apart of our communities for hundreds if not thousands of years.
We now have app messaging groups, social media, forum boards, and all sorts of other instant means of communication with people of like minds and interest. Assimilation and necessity to learn the language around you decreases when you can skype home to your family 1000 miles away. You can travel anywhere in the world in 12-16 hours. Yet still, the remnants of our geographical past leave their marks on us – just like they have our ancestors before us. But can you base an identity from it?
We look to ethnic and racial ancestry for meaning but we often no longer live in the same ethnic and racial communities our ancestors did. Therefore we are left not knowing who we really are, but having to settle for knowing what food our ancestors liked to eat. This is the curse of the digital age and it’s not going away anytime soon. Yet we need something that has real world significance and applies to our daily lives.
My journey in life has led me to building a family and becoming a husband and a father. I already notice that I have much in common with fathers and families – especially ones with young children as both my sons are infants. It’s something that’s transcends any of the normal identity categories. However, there are plenty of people not in my situation. Where do they look to find out who they are?
The Fragile Alliance
The Victim identity currently has culminated into this mad blob like behemoth barely held together by patchwork, duct tape, and thread. The victim pyramid often fights with in itself to see who is the most oppressed and should get the most airtime, support, and of course financial resources – those frequently mentioned scraps.
While we exist in a global market place where communication is a click away, people still want what is theirs or what they think should be theirs and will believe anything that “strengthens” their arguments to get it. It’s why they’ve built this fragile identity, while giving little thought to the future of what happens when the current boogeyman is gone.
Consider the fragile coalition that many of the social justice crowd have built their ideal identities upon and easily their ire shifts once there isn’t any “white supremacy or privilege” in the area to rant and blame for problems. If there isn’t a “colonizer” or “white imperialist” or any of the other usual buzzwords around to blame as scapegoats for everything wrong with their society, who is next down the line to become the villain?
Well, usually the people near you. Could be your neighbors, people already considered deviants in a society, or those just across the border. Most of these “identities” are held together quite loosely as are the apparent alliances they are all supposed to have.
It might not even matter if they speak the same language, look the same, or are apparently part of your political coalition as “People of Color”. Recall the vicious fight over the 2014 attempt in California to repeal Affirmative Action to ensure more “diversity” or in this case more Latino/Hispanic college student admittance.
The Asian community in California raised hell and stated quite bluntly that the universities there would eventually and most surely have an “Asian quota”. That whole “People of Color” idea was thrown to the way side and was put this way, “As lifelong advocates for the Asian American and other communities, we would never support a policy that we believed would negatively impact our children.”
Shocking. Well, how about people who speak the same language and have somewhat similar melanin content?
Well, let’s take “Latinos” and “Hispanics”. The only thing Columbians, Guatemalans, Salvadorans, and Mexicans may have in directly common is speaking Spanish, some foods, generation class disparities from the Conquistador days, and a love for Futbol.
Do they view themselves as some sort of ethnic bloc for political purposes based on solidarity when it comes to economic and social issues? What happens when local interests, classes, economic depression, corruption and factions collide and intersect?
“One was deported to Honduras and the other to Haiti because the police insisted that in Mexico there are no black people. Despite having Mexican ID, they were deported.”
No solidarity indeed.
Zimmerman became a “White Hispanic” after he shot Trayon Martin. Yet Latinos are “People of Color” (All of them having some Hispanic a.k.a. Spanish and therefore – “white” blood in them.) despite an active race war going on in LA resulting in blacks being deliberately murdered. The category is so vast, no one even knows. The systematic oppression we hear so much about existed in many forms all over. Consider this; of 11 million African slaves, 10.5 million went to central and South America. The lauded liberator Simon Bolivar himself owned slaves.
If you are black and you go to Africa, everyone will give you a blank look while you try to talk “black” solidarity. Even if you look Black, you still won’t be African to them – or on other continents necessarily. Depending on the region and your gender, you may also be mugged, raped, or killed. If its the Congo, you may be enslaved and they won’t care where you are from or the melanin in your skin.
If they didn’t care about selling other tribes into slavery places like Ghana, The Ivory Coast, Senegal, and Angola, they might not care about it now or about robbing you. In fact, in Ghana they will actually call you white, regardless of how tan you are. Their government had to resort to an advertising campaign to get people there to view American blacks as long-lost relatives instead of as rich tourists to be swindled.
“Many African-Americans who visit Africa are unsettled to find that Africans treat them — even refer to them — the same way as white tourists. The term “obruni,” or “white foreigner,” is applied regardless of skin color.“
“But what is here to say is that though those freed slaves were Africans in blood and in their memory, they were not African culturally. Culture, which is the most important element of a people’s identity, was a Western one for the descendants of slaves. To put it directly, those people who returned to Africa were Black Skins, White Masks.”
Everyone wants to be a victim, but someone has to be the oppressor to hand out the reparation spoils.
So what’s the point of all of that?
If you want to build a people and an identity to excel and become something to remembered in history, it cant be based on vague concepts of ethnic opposition, racial animus and blaming, obsession with past grievances, or borderline hatred of the descendants of those who were successful – no matter how that success was obtained.
Yes, there are some commonalities that bind us together. The enemy of enemy can be my friend, but what happens after that enemy is gone? If the ties that bind your alliance are deeper than hatred, loathing, and blaming others for your problems, an intrinsic part of you will be able to build toward a better future. Or if you can’t it will remain one stranded in the past wondering why the future is still bleak while being left behind by those who forged ahead despite the burdens of the past.
Yet much confusion remains for many Americans. No one knows who they are. Those in the Alt-Right want “white” to mean something, but it often doesn’t go any further than being proud of your melanin composition and opposition to some other group and a hand in the cookie jar fighting for scraps with everyone else. That’s not a stable building block for an identity.
But the lighter skinned Europeans in general? Yes, I get it, but in the end, how much do the Polish and French really have in common with the Italians or Spaniards besides centuries of distrust and loathing? (Italian Americans were distrusted by other “whites” in the US at the turn of the 20th century because of a higher crime rate.)
I recently saw Richard Spencer argue that they are “white”, but as I’ve pointed out earlier, what the hell does that even mean anymore? The closest concept I can think of would be a cultural one that specifically applies to Americans, but even that’s flawed at the roots.
The early European settlers who came over to America had vast differences in how they saw themselves ranging from the “Borderers” of the Scottish/English border – modern day Applachian residents to the Catholic Cavaliers now of Virginia.
“…Anglican preacher Charles Woodmason, an important source for information about the early Borderers, said that during his missionary activity the Borderers “disrupted his service, rioted while he preached, started a pack of dogs fighting outside the church, loosed his horse, stole his church key, refused him food and shelter, and gave two barrels of whiskey to his congregation before a service of communion”
“Colonial opinion on the Borderers differed within a very narrow range: one Pennsylvanian writer called them “the scum of two nations”, another Anglican clergyman called them “the scum of the universe”.
The effects of this difference in worldview, character, and how the old country shaped their outlook of life can be seen today in the Borderers being the origin of the label “Redneck” and they are still looked at with disdain by their apparent betters in the New England area. There was no “white” identity in a pure racial sense then and the only sense it exists now seems to be in a pejorative sense from progressives.
While your “skin identity” might be the identity crises and struggle of today, its time to move on. That can happen now or in the next hundred years when demographic changes hit so hard that no one knows who or what constitutes white and you have nothing in common with any of the generations from the old country.
It’s happening even now through “mixing”. To the people taking pride in being Irish, Chinese, Chilean, brown, white, mixed, etc. I say, “So what?” Is that all that you have to give you purpose in your life?
Positive and Negative Identity
The Z Man pondered a while back upon the idea of negative and positive identity. Negative identity was a kind of worldview shaped on what you held opposition to. A positive identity was based on foundation viewpoints that you held sacred, opposition to alternatives not being what forms your sacred principles in the first place.
He also made the case that much of black identity in America is based off opposition – usually to “white” people. The concept of mutual survival and overcoming struggle can be part of one’s identity, but can it be the primary component?
For instance, if there were no Asians, Hispanics, whites, Arabs, and other mixed groups of people around, what would black identity in America look like? You can flip this question on the head and wonder the same about white identity from a white nationalist and ACTUAL white supremacist perspective in America. What happens when all the “problematic” people aren’t around to blame?
“Philly Antifa is a Antifascist division operating in Philadelphia, PA and the surrounding area. We are in direct conflict with Racism, Homophobia, Sexism, Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, Transphobia, and all the various other flavors of Fascism.”
You’ll notice a cause and identity shaped only by what they stand against, and most of the “groups” and causes they stand for are guilty of all these same sins for very obvious reasons. When the “primary” white privileged colonial identity they loathe so much is gone they will have to find a new cause to revile.
The attacks can never be allowed to stop as that is who they are – all that their identity is. They wage a new cultural cold war after their recent cultural conquests in a desire to eviscerate the past and tradition with branding them perpetrators of the “sins” of today. It really is a new cultural cold war.
Consider the following quote from the U.S. Civil Rights Commission and how it brands and associates Christianity with the villains of the day:
“The phrases ‘religious liberty’ and ‘religious freedom’ will stand for nothing except hypocrisy so long as they remain code words for discrimination, intolerance, racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, Christian supremacy, or any form of intolerance.”
What will they replace it with? Groups of formerly allied factions will fight in the same heinous ways with each other to occupy the foundation vacuum thats left. Will the traditional “latinos” or “muslims” be the next to be labeled Nazis by the secular LBGTqists? Will dialogue even be possible with dissenting thought being labeled “hate speech?”
Their bastard children – and those of the sexual revolution – are now at the point of attacking “privileged” people – often pejoratively labeled cis straight white males to the point where dialogue is impossible. Those with sense on the left have taken notice to this alarming state of affairs:
“Speaking as an X sets up a wall against questions, which by definition come from a non-X perspective. And it turns the encounter into a power relation: the winner of the argument will be whoever has invoked the morally superior identity and expressed the most outrage at being questioned. So classroom conversations that once might have begun, I think A, and here is my argument, now take the form, Speaking as an X, I am offended that you claim B. This makes perfect sense if you believe that identity determines everything. It means there is no impartial space for dialogue.”
Negative identity obsessed leftists have lost the ability to speak to much of America. In their glee for the “white” majority to demographically become a minority, they stopped caring all together for them. This is gap that we on the dissident right should fill – and not just with “whites”.
It is time to build new foundations from the ones burnt to ashes by the left. By their obsession to destroy all of the past, they’ve cast a wide net of self-destruction with the institutions they control. Hatred is a great motivator and anger might get more attention, but you can’t build a foundation for a lasting and stable identity off them.
The Inevitable Backlash
“I find it uncomfortable to have to speak about my identity all of the time, when in reality it’s not something that drives me or wakes me up out of bed everyday. I didn’t grow up in a household where I was categorized by my mother. I was just Zoe and I could have and be anything that I ever wanted to do…and every human being is the same as you. So to all of a sudden leave your household and have people always ask you, “What are you, what are you” is the most uncomfortable question and it’s literally the most repetitive question. I can’t wait to be in a world where people are sized by their soul and how much they can contribute as individuals and not what they look like.” – Zoe Saldana on race.
They need a break, relief, and something with actual solutions for life.
It’s not just them either. Many of us in the dissident right have become obsessed with bashing easy targets like SJWs, but what are we offering people? Are they seeing something good, true, and beautiful that breathes purpose and stability into the lives of people they know?
For too long, we’ve been willing participants taking full advantage of the degeneracy we criticized so we could virtue signal our own supposed righteousness. Yes, it was part of the journey, but it’s time for the next stage of it.
We must lead the way by example. What kind of identity can we build for those of us on the dissident right and for those many people lost in the wilderness? Can we offer their shattered lives hope from addiction, depression, and destruction? The thinkers at Social Matter realize that any identity for the future must be built by the local people and their communities.
“The right should focus on building new networks using traditional methods. Book clubs, religious groups, fraternal organizations, freethinker/illuminati/ “secret societies,” rural/country sports, etc. It must develop and provide a coherent identity for people as stewards of a civilization, and not the arbitrary occupants of undifferentiated heaps of dirt, which globalism promotes.”
We need stability and close community in these times to find out who we are and where we should go. People groups and “cultures” that are adaptable, tight-knit, and believe family and principle come first have always seemed to survive impending doom and calamity . Every time. Some of them would even thrive.
They put their communities first and rebuilt the one’s that were destroyed. Russia would survive the Mongols, the Jews would survive and thrive in Europe, the Tibetans would hold stubborn in face of Chinese suppression, and the widely reviled Gypsies still retain their way of life and culture. They may have been conquered, but they were never removed of their identities. Their communities, cities, and eventual ethnic identities came first. The Tibetans would remain Tibetan.
Humans can’t have hope for the future if they know they are just a cog in a machine without an identity whose immediate daily future is dependent on the next global trend. We need that stability. We need routine. We need traditions that last a millennia. We need communities that eventually create a new pseudo “ethnicity”.
People want change, but change is happening so fast that no one knows who or what they are. We know the results and impact of the various traditions over hundreds of years. The change being introduced by technology, arguably digital and social techs something we’ve had barely 30 years to observe.
Even now we are realizing technology is depriving many of us of meaningful work. Your future is either in an office cubicle or for the less educated it’s an Amazon warehouse waiting with baited breath for their eight hours to be up. In order for any stable identity to sprout, you need meaning and purpose in what you do and one’s job constitutes a large share of their time in life.
I’m sure many a child with bright eyes and grand dreams imagined themselves doing the same repetitive task every day and consider it a fulfillment of what they thought their lives would look like. Those that refuse these repetitive menial occupations and get degrees in history, art and language still end up punished for their defiance with student loan debt and degrees that land them jobs at Kohls.
They too end up left behind, yet this time they aren’t some kind of resistance to the Anti-Christ in a post-Revelation battle, but rather lost souls stuck in what seems like an earthly purgatory.
The manosphere is composed of many men who’ve been left behind, divorced and pillaged for everything they had, and the men who were told that nice guys got the girls. What they all lacked was a community of men to pick them up at their lowest. That community has slowly been eviscerated by time, tech, and lowering family expectations as our culture implodes. (It’s something we never saw as a potential negative consequence of ease and speed of travel.)
Feminism in it’s zealousness to sexually empower women threw them into a cold world as it destroyed the traditional rules and guidelines that served to protect women from roving and dashing rogues.
It ensured a hunting ground where the “Alpha” studs and players would have an easier time of pumping and dumping girls who now had no family or surrounding community to ensure accountability for their newly scorned and scarred existences. There were no brothers or fathers to find the conniving misogynist player – or more likely male feminist – who promised her marriage before sex and then dumper her shortly after. It was her choice after all and any thought of their interference or afterthoughts can be safely dismissed as Patriarchy.
What a lonely sad place to be thrust in to. We as a culture are in a similar plight. Loneliness, depression, and anxiety are tearing people down at the core. We need to give them a respite from the rigors and struggles of life, not just another “war” for them to fight in their limited free time which they’d rather spend drinking with friends or spending with their families.
We in the dissident right need joy back in our lives instead of a constant over saturation and exposure to the fact that everything is wrong and there’s little we can do it to fix it. Without joy, we become much like the rest of the jaded and divided populace; depressed, angry, rendered helpless by anxiety, loneliness, and all these other conditions that seem unique to our modern digital age.
Righteous anger is great, but unless it’s harnessed to help build the foundations for a better culture and identity, it’s useless. We are offering the sarcastic critiques and meme takedowns, but are we providing any solutions or examples besides playing capture the flag with Shia LaBeouf? (Which for the record I did greatly enjoy.)
Dealing With Our Differences
“Charles Darwin himself would be fired from Google for his views on the sexes.” – John durant
A new rebellion against social Darwinism and the natural course of evolutionary biology is being undertook by the left. We know there are differences and we must understand them in order to make the best of our lives and situations. Unlike the left however, we should not throw the baby out with the bathwater as if we are emotional hostages.
The one issue that proponents of IQ differences and making policy judgments with them run into is that we aren’t animals. Yes, we may be predisposed – both genetically and culturally – to all sorts of heinous and good behavior, but its nature and nurture.
The same can be said on the IQ question regarding recent immigrants to the US – almost regardless of race – and often focused on recent Latino immigrants. Ron Unz made an important observation on this subject:
“However, it is well known that nearly all previous immigrant groups—southern and eastern Europeans—who came here in poverty similarly scored very low on IQ tests in the decades after their arrival, with results that were sometimes far below those of today’s Mexican immigrants.
Yet after a generation or two their tested intelligence had almost invariably converged close to the American mean. Evidence of the past does not necessarily predict the future, but such a strong historical pattern should leave us cautious about assuming it will not continue.”
Obviously the significance of assimilation and that of an already established and dominant Anglo Saxon population – specifically demographically – played a role in this, but we shouldn’t be so quick to pick and choose what parts of history we are willing to form your observations and conclusions from.
Certain elements you can’t fight, but others you can shape, mold, and form. Just because we “evolve” a certain way doesn’t mean we should give in like we are animals. We don’t have to become as horrific as social Darwinists have. No one has to settle for the disadvantages they were born as or into – a lesson the manosphere has hammered into us via self-improvement.
Samuel Morris who was mere African boy of Kru origin from Liberia who endured hardship and struggle – both escaping from impending death via another tribe to his sea voyage – would come to America and make an impact on everyone he touched. Regardless of intelligence, it can never be forgotten that everyone does have a place in God’s Kingdom.
It’s our ability and willpower to shape our environments that has brought mankind incredible technological and societal progress in just 200 years. The more we understand about our biology, the better we can adapt our surroundings to harness our advantages.
Predisposed because of genetics and biology. Certain elements you can’t fight. Others you can shape, mold, and form. Just because we “evolve” a certain way doesn’t mean we should give in like we are animals. It’s our ability and willpower to shape our environments that make us different from any other species.
Within the IQ debate we must also be careful with the constant attempts by the aggrieved to dehumanize people, regardless of who they might be. While we aren’t here to necessarily make friends, there’s no reason to frighten or turn off people from the Dissident Right because of bad optics or comment agitators who might make people look stupid, but in the process turn them off from ever opening their minds even slightly. We need to stop allowing actual racists from the 1488 sphere to be the only one’s who talk about these issues.
In fact on this matter, it must be US on the Dissident Right who discusses the issue, rather then actual White Supremacists who seek to weaponize it. I don’t care much for AntiFa, SJWs, or actual Nazis who are literally blinded by hatred, but I urge everyone to always remember that they are people – human beings – who can ultimately be redeemed just like John Newton.
This doesn’t mean we shouldn’t speak the truth. One of the most important things to the foundation of any stable identity is that of speaking and seeking the truth.
It’s what we do with all these facts that really matter.
If we are ever to improve not just our own living situations, but that of those around us and throughout the globe we need be able to discuss the modern day heretical and taboo topics like race and sex if we are ever to do anything to thelp those who most negatively by them.
In order to maintain a thriving and improving culture and identity, you do need fresh and new perspectives. For that beneficial assimilation – for both parties – to occur however, those new perspectives that enter the fold though must be surrounded by the already established culture and tradition of those who have or are building it.
In the back of our minds, we must always be on guard against subversion and convergence of our core principles. Just as when you join a new Church, forum, group, or team you absorb and learn from the already established minds there before you bring any creative alternatives to the forefront.
It’s why purity tests and White Nationalism are flawed from their very roots. If you can’t grab and utilize the very best creative minds from your ethnic/racial demographic, how are you going to help it?
“The various factions of White Nationalists already spend more time gossiping about each other (usually anonymously), stabbing each other in the back and jockeying for power and influence than any group I have ever seen — except maybe Social Justice Warriors, who are also predominantly white. I’m not sure which group is the Jungian shadow of the other, but the majority of people in both groups are some of the most broken, shittiest white people on the planet.”
Is this really what anyone who is white, part white, or sympathetic to white people want to promote as a group to base the foundations for an identity that will last?
In turn they are of course mocked endlessly by the left in memes, pictures, etc. just as what happened enmasse on the internet after Charlottesville. I may have some compassion for white people considering their constant denigration by the left – and being half white myself – but how can we take them seriously and their envy toward Jews and spewing trash about “minorities” when they largely appear to be trash themselves?
In fact, can you honestly say that the left in this case doesn’t have a point? (If only they realized the same irony of the kind of ghetto trash and “activists” that show up for BLM protests and riots.)
Are those really the types of people you want to hold up as rolemodels that can build an identity? You want not just the smartest and most creative, but those who aren’t corrupted by their natural abilities, talents, and influence.
Unlike the left, I have an interest in uplifting the downtrodden around me, white or not.
“To create a meaningful change, what we need is more of the chest; nobility, virtue, and spirited mythology are what our people need, not dry and dusty arguments which, to the average person, are indistinguishable from those of the left-wing ivory tower intellectuals.
Rather than trying to distribute the ideas – and handing them over to the Obsessives and Extremists who turn them into a farce – we need to own them. We need to implement them. We must go out there and create.”
How can we do this?
At this point in the game, we must realize that politically there is little we can do unless we wield influence and have the finances to push our ideas. We have gotten ahead of ourselves. The elites didn’t just fall into power – they acquired it, social capital, influence, and the keys to power over the last several generations and molded it a framework to assure their retention of it. That is what it will take us to do anything similar.
Stable, cohesive, and virtuous identities that will influence and shape a culture and nation will take time and a multi-generational plan. Patience will be needed. It’s a battle that many of us still don’t understand. We are fighting against the deliberate forces of the worst impulses of modernity that bombard us at every turn.
It’s hard to retain the willpower to create when vegetation of your mind via yet another TV show, amazon sale, or sports game are within easy reach offering reprieve and relaxation from the grind of life. Actual planning, creation, and implementation are taxing and demanding. It’s easy to criticize, but hard to offer solutions.
Even harder is it to initiate on the individual level the means to become the light and leader for groups to form around you. Davis makes the point:
“All of us will continue to have these lofty, idealistic discussions, of course; both for their own sake (intellectuals enjoy intellectualism, after all) as well as for comparing notes and refining our theories. But what ultimately matters isn’t the debate – it’s the action. Not the centrally-planned, coordinated action of a mass movement, but the ongoing implementation of new plans, new endeavors, and new accomplishments – all of which are the domain of individuals. It isn’t the inculcation of ideas which matters; it’s the inculcation of new practices.”
It’s not just easy to be a critic, it’s one that often lands you fame and recognition. What’s much harder is coming up with solutions and the subsequent practices that will see them successfully started.
We are going to have to dig very deep and consider thoughts and ideas that many of us with conservative and liberal roots would consider unthinkable whether its the Distributionism proposed by men like Chesterton or some kind of downward “distribution” to create networks and loyal men and women of our own. I know, perish the thought.
Think of where many of us on the Dissident Right have come from. You have libertarians, Orthodox Christians, some atheists and skeptics, neo-reactionaries, neo-masculinists and Red Pilled/manosphere folks, race-realists, and monarchists. You even have paleo-health types like Hawaiian Libertarian in a category of his own.
What united us what a struggle against the new authorities of our age. We were in our own righteous rebellion. Instead of a mere rebellion to authority of the usual, “Get bent Dad” attitude, the meme warriors among us were able to extend their rebellion to violating the new sacred golden cows that the left had instilled over the last few decades.
Of course our defiance felt great. While we bellowed in agony over the lost protections of the old traditions, we took full advantage of the world that had been created it in it’s absence. That broken chaotic world however still remains. Who are we going to turn to for guidance?
At the same time, did we really consider what was supposed to replace the authority we were challenging? Are some of us still rebels without a cause? We need order and stability from the chaos that we are seeing all around us. How can we work toward this?
Let’s me offer the following points as food for thought:
1. If we aren’t putting what we theorize into practice, no foundation will ever be laid. No foundation means we will never birth a culture, group, people, and identity that can show people that we have answers and a purpose to partake in. Say what you want about Jack Donovan, but he is trying to do just that in his encouragement for men to become Barbarians.
Rod Dreher, love or hate him, reaffirms this point: “But as I say in The Benedict Option, “we cannot give the world what we do not have.”And the one thing that many, many Catholics (and other self-identified Christians) in Europe and North America do not have is a living orthodox faith.”
2. We can’t inspire people if we are not the city on the hill. We have to be out there showing others that our ideas can be seen and manifested in one’s daily life. Everyone can wax happy thoughts on a forum board, but without action in real life we can’t inspire people or give them hope.
3. The chosen messenger matters just as much as the message. What do so many leaders and people of influence have in common? Charisma, courage, power of persuasion, ability to deliver difficult and large abstract concepts and messages to the everyday man, and the ability to build social trust among not just “followers but people within their community. That’s just to name a few.
Take the explosive rise to prominence for Jordan Peterson. What is he doing that the rest of us have not? It’s not that his “followers” view him as infallible as much as that the advice and guidance he gives to people is directly applicable to them in their daily life and can be acted upon in an immediate fashion. His advice in particular stands out because it’s not encouraging them to become victims, but rather to take charge of their lives, even in an unfair world.
Granted he’s already been in a position of influence as a professor, but what he’s been doing with that has been exemplary. The reception to his suggestions that are focused on immediate action that people can apply to their real life instead of semi-abstract philosophical theory says a lot about what we should be doing.
I don’t want to be some example to be held up and scrutinized as a paragon of virtue that has it all going for him, but people have to see that a REAL purpose in life can be had and that hope, trust, and joy are something we in the dissident right possess naturally.
It’s why those of us who are in the shadows have to step out of them. That means our daily interactions with others both in and out of the Dissident Right shouldn’t specifically be out proselytizing about our politics, philosophy, and worldview, but rather about how we are living our lives to the fullest with a manifestation of hope for all that know us.
4. We need to become the new bartenders in society. It should be us in our various circles that people come to just to converse because they know we are genuine and will speak the truth. Get out and off the internet and to your local bar, church, beach, or event and mingle.
To put it bluntly, we want people to WANT to be like us and to live like we do – which we have to show people that the way we live is worth living. Essentially, you need to LIVE it. This is tough. Let me level with you. Right now in my life, I barely have time to get out there and talk to people. Perhaps my only real chances are at work.
My time is spent primarily with my kids and wife in the morning before I go to work – often specifically taking care of and spending time with my sons as to give my wife a break before I go off to work. The next 10 hours she spends are of intense and care attention for our 2 year old and 1 year old sons.
This young, they are a handful and require constant attention and she’s often exhausted when I get home from work at night. I then get a few hours with her before we go to sleep for the night.
That doesn’t leave much time for Internet musings, exploration, or even going out to some event at night. Even my preferred vice of gaming is very limited. This is the path I’ve happily chosen, but my time is going to be very limited in terms of socializing with the masses till my sons get a bit older and can are speaking full sentences.
“The society which scorns excellence in plumbing as a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy: neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.” – John W. Gardner, Excellence: Can We Be Equal and Excellent Too? (1961)
Without hope the degeneracy and race to the bottom will continue and our forgotten and sorry state of spiritual, relational, and familial health will join in that race. No new lasting identities will be forged.
Many of us on the Dissident Right concentrate much of our valuable energy to dismantling the attacks and nonsense of the victim oppression circus – often for good reason. However, let’s ask ourselves; what do we have to show for it?
We’ve engaged in logical arguments with a culture – the vast amount of it who aren’t logical. We should have appealing to their emotional heartstrings by showing these people in this culture that there is a much better path; one filled with happiness and joy by families and individuals to light the way in the dark.
Look around at the smartphone zombies, dysfunctional families, depressed tumblrettes, etc. They are desperate to see an identity which functions, if not shines blindingly bright in the dark night, to show them that there’s another way. We have to prove that identities aren’t found on the internet or in “opposition” to some cause.
Modernity and specifically the digital age has rapidly undermined our identities and it will continue to do so until we can show people something different, real, true, good, and beautiful – which is what tradition used to do.
Even the urbanites who live close together have no idea who they are besides attachments to hedonistic night life, festivals, public transportation, and believing themselves to be “progressive”. They remain awake late into the night feeling alone, lost, and without purpose stuck in depression and unhappiness.
Society and culture will become more detached – and already are – from reality as people delve into virtual worlds of semi-seclusion, perfectly curated social media personas, and anonymous posters who apparently live the good life in expensive apartments in crowded cities.
Those of us left in the real world who haven’t amused ourselves to death in a Brave New World landscape will realize that actual human meaningful interaction in large doses on a daily scale will create a new identity – one that was born with the hobbits of the Shire; a place, a community, and a neighborhood that you can call Home.
Or we will just become insane thrill adrenaline junkies desperate to feel alive throwing thousands of dollars on trips two weeks out of the year to remind us that there is sunshine, breezes, and natural noises outside of our cubicles.
Let’s avoid this Brave New 1984 Dystopia and instead start building the foundations for a future that shines bright in the darkness. If you have any ideas that are immediately applicable, please let me know.
Regretfully for the last 10 years, I watched plenty of porn which aided in my frequent and fervent masturbation each day. It gave all sorts of bizarre inclination and fetishes. Porn showed me how the bodies banged, loud wails, and how many holes could be stuffed at the same time, but not much else.
Easy access on any device, a quick jerk and release, and I was back to my video games, reading, or anything else I felt like at that moment. Time was being used efficiently. After watching some gangbang for the zillionth time, I clearly knew more about getting laid. All was well. Was I lacking anything?
What was lacking is that I still didn’t know how to approach, talk, or much less make the moves on girls so any of that glorious fun looking sex would come my way. Touching and stroking would apparently moisten things up if I got to that part where my fingers and lips were welcomed, but I wasn’t sure about the rest. We saw the penetration, but not how a guy actually got a girl to desire that with him.
When I finally bust from my virgin cage and began to actually have sex with in-the-flesh girls, I ran into moments where I couldn’t get or stay hard. Instead of being as ravenous and filled with testosterone like King Kong, I would suddenly be unable to perform – something devastating for both parties involved. Imagine the excitement of knowing you were gonna get some and the confidence blow when you go limp.
What was happening?
A recent phenomena in secular and Christian circles encourages teenagers and college students to wait till their late 20s to 30s to get married. One must wait till they are financially stable, out of debt, and raking in the big bucks after finally establishing their career – which will never happen for most of us until we hit our late 30s if we are lucky.
During that time you better abstain from the sex, avoid that porn, and stop thinking about how you really want to be enjoying all that meaningless sex your friends are having while you wear your own kind of chastity belt having kissed dating goodbye. You avoid that porn as much as possible, but the addiction begins – one that’s affecting many Christian men (and women). In fact something like a third of visitors to porn sites are now women.
I was a product of this – though my dad encouraged me to get married to alleviate my desires. Of course, I was picky, selfish, immature, and irresponsible. I wasn’t looking for a wife just yet, but a “best friend” and someone who wanted to mate frequently.
Supplementing my technical “virginity” with porn, I held on to that sacred virginity as long as possible so I could claim some moral high-ground. Eventually I said to hell with it and went on my journey of debauchery. I didn’t reject my faith, but I certainly wasn’t going to go to church and bother with guilt.
Perhaps I was lucky to experience the “player burnout” rather quickly and realize that I wanted to find a wife with which to raise a family – and have plenty of sex with of course – and devote my time less to pursuit and more to worthwhile activities.
Game And Beyond
I had to learn game. Friends gave me advice. The internet gave me stories. Podcasts, videos, forum boards, and all those misogynist sexist bastards shared the details of what women wanted and turned them on, rather then what they said they wanted.
Embracing my inner confident asshole, I never looked back. My conquests came through, and my confidence rose to levels of those lucky nerds who gets the girl in those vapid and misleading movies. In my nerdy days, those romantic happy endings were in a galaxy far far away of which I lacked access
Those problems I mentioned earlier however didn’t evaporate. Lurking like a nagging and unscabbed wound, they poked at me.
I recall Davis Aurini mentioned on a stream how men with girlfriends or wives would often jerk off to porn instead of having sex with them. Their natural attraction toward the feminine body which should have given them rock hard boners was being subdued and withered.
These words stuck me, because what he described was exactly what I was doing – even when I hit my “prime”. I supplemented actual sex with porn, often preferring the porn to any “real” girl. It was easy, took less effort, and was warping my mind and ability to be aroused by a REAL woman.
When I met my wife, we had intense sexual attraction. Our secretive and risky adventures to have sex would give way for daily and comfortable sweat sessions once we got married. This has never stopped – yes we still have sex every day.
What also never stopped until recently was me using porn on the side. While me and my wife had watched some together to get ideas, I would often watch it when she wasn’t around. During her back to back pregnancies, it made her feel worse and worse as her body confidence took massive hits due to the natural weight gain of pregnancy.
In fact, at points I couldn’t get hard without watching porn before I had sex with her. As you can imagine, it made her feel like crap. Furthermore, I was often only able to oblige her to sex twice a day because my drive had decreased from jerking off to porn during the other parts of the day.
Yes, you did read that right. Sex only twice a day on average instead of more because my wife’s sex drive is that high. That’s how much she is attracted to me, loves me, and wants me. I was letting her down. Her great body that should have been driving me crazy was being ignored for people who meant nothing to me on the web.
Porn even made me lazy. I wouldn’t do any at home workouts and my “desk job” managed to pack on an additional 30 pounds making me officially overweight for my height. Still through all of this, my wife strongly desires me.
I’m lucky gentleman. Yea my game is good as are my looks, but how many men can say the same in a similar situation? My wife is just that loyal and into me.
I could have very well permanently sabotaged my relationship and marriage to get that momentary high from watching and jerking to porn.
My wife deserves more. She deserves all the sex she can get from me, regardless if I’m feeling horny or not. Porn only lowered my libido. It’s a dangerous drug that’s hard to give up. Even still, I sometimes feel permanently altered from its affect when me and my wife go at it.
It’s a lesson I will teach my two sons. I encourage all of you to do the same and be careful – even using it as a stimulus for you and your wives. Avoid it. Your wife or girlfriend has a body that you should ravish. Study hers and do exactly that.
Sometimes the old wisdom from those prudish puritan conservatives and I daresay insane raving feminists who disprove of porn for opposite reasons can be correct. Plenty of studies tell us about the ill effects of porn on men and even on women who have developed addictions. You just don’t take those effects seriously until it happens to you.
“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.” – G.K. Chesterton
A while back, many in the anglosphere noticed that many of the notorious “PUAS” were reaching the end of their hedonic treadmills. For some like Roosh, they were entering a new season of life. Those of us who had discovered the Red Pill knew there had to be more. We realized that the West had to be rebuilt with a solid foundation and a legacy that couldn’t be based on hedonism, bashing feminists, or have an identity built on opposition.
At the height of my PUA days, I declared feminists as my enemy. They were degenerate, anti-family, and promiscuous. This was at the peak of when I embarked on behavior that was degenerate, anti-family, and promiscuous. My attacks against them were one way of relieving the guilt and discomfort of my own behavior, since most of the girls I slept with had to have feminist thoughts in their minds to allow me to gain easy sex. I was experiencing pleasurable orgasms with the enemy in the evening then writing about how bad they were the day after.
We were staring into the abyss and it was turning us. While pretending to flush the sewage, we contributed to it while calling the girls who put out easy sluts. What was the point at the end of it? Were we doing anything useful? Building the kind of culture and society that we kept pointing out was being destroyed, but deliberately contributing to its very destruction?
There is a next step. Some of us may not be able to to take it and for that I will not pass judgement. But those of us who can must, and so we have. I’d like to bring your attention to two new sites in particular that I believe are of vast importance to building that foundation – one that wont be built off bashing feminism, sjws, and a myriad of other things that ARE NOT in our immediate local context to effect.
A Kings Castle is what I believe is the next evolution of ROK, except it focuses on fathers and families. Those two subjects are essential for the stable foundation and prosperity of any culture and society. It’s staffed by multiple men who all are fathers and husbands who are doing their part to try and promote healthy family growth and life. Demographics is destiny and a demographic that is composed of strong families is what will build rise from the ashes of what is left of American culture. You’ll notice that the race obsession isn’t a part of that.
The other is Jacobite Mag. A particular article of theirs, “The Right Needs Joy” struck me. It argues the definition of Thomas Aquinas in that joy proceeds from love and the truest joy is ordered love that focuses on the very things that deserve that love. The following point is devastatingly accurate:
“This sort of joy is in dangerously short supply. Many on the right, especially those who identify as “Alt-Right,” spend massive amounts of time rejoicing in the pain of those with whom they disagree. The fact that videos about “libtard meltdowns” and “Butt-Hurt Crying Hillary Voters Compilation” have far more views than videos about Shakespeare, Alexis de Tocqueville, and Dante’s Commedia, should tell us something. Young conservatives and reactionaries, much as they flail their hands at the death of Western civilization and the loss of wisdom, do very little in the way of actually preserving the beauty and truth underlying this great tradition. If joy is truly a result of love, man must be very careful to develop the right affections in his breast. Right now many on the right seem hellbent on cultivating affection for dank memes rather than for truth, goodness, and beauty.”
“When not mocking, many give way to the temptation of defeatism, resentment, and self-congratulation. One of the clearest examples of this habit is the use of the “red pill” metaphor. While it has some communicative merit in expressing how fundamental many of the disagreements between progressives and traditionalists are, it is a troubling metaphor. It encourages a gnostic view of truth and happiness, in which only those who have seen through the fog of progressive brainwashing can recognize any meaningful truths. While I certainly agree that contemporary progressivism is a suicidal ideology, many virtuous, dedicated, and intelligent people ascribe to some part of it while still recognizing aspects of reality. Insofar as these people are living in the truth, they are able to properly rejoice in it. Meanwhile, many who rightly critique the emptiness of the progressive project fall into habits of resentment and unhappiness that actually moves them farther away not just from joy and charity, but truth itself.”
If we want to Red Pill anyone, we have to lead by example. How much joy can you have if your primary purpose is destruction and schadenfreude instead of laying down roots and a foundation? The Alt Reich could learn from this. Or they can continue their descent into blaming instead of building.
They’ve been consumed by hate. Instead of building families they writhe with hatred of jews, blacks, and whoever else can be blamed for why their life isnt what it shouldnt be. What a terrible way to go. They’ve missed what will really rebuild not just “whites”, but everyone. Yes, that includes our black brethren in the cities.
Stable families that show love, laughter, faith, truth, beauty, goodness, and a reason to get up tomorrow morning with a purpose and hope in life. We need to focus on what we can actually affect – the lives of those around us. This is done through families that can build up the community and the lives of those in our community. It’s probably the primary point that the authors of A Kings Castle will hammer home; focus on what we can affect instead of national politics and scaremongering.
That’s my son. Him and his younger brother will build a legacy that affects our families, friends, and neighbors. That’s how you Red Pill the world around you; by showing them how it’s done. We will outbreed those who so throughout endorse abortion and create a new foundation built on the shoulders of those who came before us.
We will build marriages worthy of remembrance and praise. Our children will rise to the top bringing those around them on the ride. The community around us will see our lives. We will live, drink, laugh, and not be brought down by the things in life we CANT control. There is a better way and we will show it.
I’m far from perfect – of that my wife will assure you. But damnit, I’m going to keep going forward and showing those around me that life is worth living, the future is worth building, and that even in the darkest of times and despair there is always a reason to keep going.
A lady on the morning news is a few streets down from me showing everyone the prevalent and widespread flooding from recent vicious storms. She talks to a few people nearby I’ve never met before. Two of the girls want to drive through a newly created pond to grab breakfast. Another guy is closely watching his half submerged house for flooding in critical areas. I don’t know any of these people, yet they are my neighbors.
Another day, another Trump headline. Some shootings in Chicago again. Crazy stories and revelations on the Drudge Report about a Russian lawyer no one’s ever heard of. CNN with shady coverage. Cringeworthy topless feminists trying to break up a Woody Allen concert.
Virtually every story I come across that I give attention to has no effect on my daily life. I “know” so much about what’s going on all over the world and nation, but just until today, I had no idea how bad the flooding damage was in my neighborhood and in nearby towns. In fact, I barely know what’s going on in people’s lives. Yes, I am busy creature with my wife and kids, but it’s far easier to share a Facebook status or meme than it is to get involved locally.
Plus I get to virtue signal to my own group that I’m woke. I’ve done my duty for the day and can avoid paying any more attention to the depressing hitsquad media circus in the current year. Of course, I’m able to do this because my life isn’t terribly hard at the moment.
I used to think that the majority of Americans are apathetic to the “important” stuff happening in the world and nation – and to some extent I still think that’s true – but how much can you care about riots in Berkeley when your basement is flooded and everything you had down there is trashed?
We often ask why all these sheeple don’t care about all the important stuff we know is important, but why should they? When I worked third shift, it was a second job for most of my co-workers. They were working 16 hours a day and sleeping maybe 5 if they were lucky. They didn’t have time, and anything they did wasn’t going to be spent worrying needlessly about things they couldn’t affect. Is it really apathy when they barely have time to sleep?
Time is the ultimate resource, and for all the time I and others bitch about nonsense happening on College campuses to celebrities lecturing us, none of it matters to someone who is spending all their time trying to pump water out of their basement.
I and many of us in this dissident right sphere have ignored our neighbors for national issues. We’ve ignored the struggles, trials, and chaos that plagues those around us to formulate musings, observations, and rants about feminism, social justice blatherings, and vacuous journalism. Say what you want about guys like Jack Donovan, but at least he’s creating his own tribe with which to live his life.
I’m back in Illinois – and looking at moving to Wisconsin the future, and I can’t help but notice that people don’t have time to care when shitholes like Waukegan, Zion, and North Chicago are filled with the hopeless who can’t find jobs, drug pushers on the street, and people begging you for money and cigarettes on every corner. Regardless of whether you loathe or hate Trump, he has no idea who you are and isn’t going to bail you out of your shitty life situation. Neither obviously will his critics.
We keep looking for political saviors to improve our lives, but we find none because the national is never focused or concerned on the local – even more so for your smaller towns. Washington DC doesn’t care about you. Chicago doesn’t care about the small towns in the rest of the state. (There’s a reason urban and rural concerns and voting is so different. )
If we want to convince people to care about the problems that face our future, we have to make their future one that is worth living for. The friends you make are the ones that will hear you out because they know you, care about you, know the investment you have in their lives, and they know you are going through the same crap they are thus forming a mutual identity. No one REALLY cares about those that aren’t like them or in the same plight.
Mark my words, this is what will drive a new cultural class identity – not race or ethnicity. Anyone with brains already knows that there’s little worth preserving in France, that Japan disdains foreigners, and that Europe’s problem’s didn’t come from refugees, but from the terrible bitter fruit of the cursed French Revolution and Enlightenment. But no, let’s blame the Jews and blacks.
Yea we can be woke with our statistics about true crime, but until communities are rebuilt, it’s pointless virtue signaling to our own crowd and arguing with people online who have never met us and consider us loathsome deplorable chem drooling hicks from the Appalachians who apparently deserve to die.
Online persuasion with irritable keyboard happy strangers is a fool’s errand. Until they meet us face-to-face, their hatred will always blind them to the fact that the suffering of people who aren’t a “minority” or marginalized group actually matters.
Stop going to fight AntiFa in Berkeley or some other peaceful, prosperous, and devoid of poverty liberal city. Focus on your neighbors instead. If AntiFa tries to show up to where you live, then fight them there – hopefully with locals and neighbors who don’t care about politics, but see AntiFa as invading scum who are the Fascists they claim to fight.
We want to be on the frontlines “making a difference”, but the frontlines are our OWN communities. That’s where the war has to be “fought”, where it’s always been fought, and it for sure as hell isn’t for those who troll mercilessly on twitter with no attachments to a communities people in real life. It’s for those who are willing to strain their backs, babysit their neighbors kids, and actually get off their damn smartphone and learn that actual face-to-face conversation is what builds trust, community, and stability for the foundations of the future.
Online Movements Are Nothing Without Local Community
Ask yourself, how much do you have in common with those in online communities besides overlapping parts of your worldview? If you perished tomorrow, would you be missed? Would articles be written? By no means should any relationships and friendships formed online be denigrated, but are your forming quality relationships with your neighbors? If a Ferguson erupted in your town, your and your frantic neighbors would share the same terrifying situation.
What’s left of the Alt-right is already proving to be narcissistic feuding degenerates all wanting a piece for themselves and to rule it from their arm chairs, while throwing each other under the bus. The online presence is often just that; online trolls to personalities either spamming books, asking for patreon donations, or meming from sun up to sun down. (I won’t denigrate the meme aspect of the culture war.)
Just as most of us pessimistic types realized, online movements are often corrupted into some warped version of themselves – as the white nationalists among us make clear daily as they obsess about race, race, and more race. Often, I’m wondering if they are just as bitter as the BLM types and what the hell is worth preserving of “white” culture – whatever that means these days besides materialism and perpetually shopping till you drop.
What the alt-right originally undertook – the forming of an identity that could rebuild the crumbling foundations of Western culture – has instead been subverted into a shallow identity of “opposition” to the left. Rather than offer up real solutions – with the exception of Vox Day – it’s been reduced down to infighting, blaming, “big government is great if it helps whites”, and ramblings about IQ.
“Take a group of people – any group of people – and if they lack an explicit purpose for associating, as well as a command and control system to make sure that purpose doesn’t waver, their identity will eventually boil down to the lowest common denominator. And the lowest common denominator for any group is usually the fact that they’re not that other group. Their identity will become something reactionary and negative; by defining themselves as the opposite of that which they oppose, they will eventually allow that other group to define who they are. Often enough, their opposition will do the same thing. Soon enough, you have two groups who are mirror images of one another, fighting one another, and whatever principles or goals that might have started the two groups, are quickly reduced to nothing but slogans, and their former leaders are vilified for holding them back from the fray.”
Even the proposals that do come forth such as Spencer’s white only ethno state aren’t just bad ideas, but will never happen. That of course assumes “white” will mean the same thing in the future as it does today – which means it won’t. What are you left with?
A local community from which you and your neighbors will build an identity. Take everything you learn online and apply it. Avoid repeating the mistakes of your “blue pill” self. History is a great teacher and one that we must constantly come back to for lessons that have stood the test of time.
Our focus must be local. You can’t address your neighbors worldview when his house is falling apart and he doesn’t know where the money is going to come from for his next mortgage payment. Desperation is all around us, but often we are blissfully unaware of it. We forget that the most eager “converts” are those whose lives were previously in shambles, yet now are starting to emerge from the slime and grind of daily life.
No reformation, societal overhaul, or prevention of the fall of what’s left of Western culture will take place until it transforms local communities. Online movements are constantly prone to decay, and ours is no exception. The Neo-Reactionists in our sphere may write as obtuse and high church like manner to keep out entryists and subversion, but they likely will be left behind in their own bubble never pushing the Overton window.
To believe in anything, you must see it impact you and those around you. It is far better to live in happiness with your neighbors then to write in malice toward strangers on either coast. The former will always be with you, while the latter you will never meet. Perhaps we can make the “change” Obama disingenuously never intended.
Recently I stumbled across an older article entitled “Are Men Still Hunting?”. The author while an SJW feminist laments that men aren’t the aggressors anymore when it comes to approaching women. (She follows up here.) I saw some comments and added a cordial one of my own.
What stood out were comments strewn about how women were reaping what they’ve sown because of feminism and great pleasure was expressed about it. Okay that’s true as well as bits about how approaching can be easily construed as sexual harassment these days.
An overall glance of said comments prompted a realization; many of us are too busy reveling in womens laments and pain to care about doing anything to help. All we have is schadenfreude – and it appears to be a serious addiction. That’s only a few steps away from being a miser who loves miserly company.
Not surprisingly, it was the MGTOWS who here enjoying her lamentations the most. While one phase of the Red Pill is a justifiable anger and bitterness phase, I’m starting to notice a slew of men who don’t come out of it. Ever.
Instead of any meaningful self improvement and actually finding a girl they enjoy, their primary driving factor for happiness is the misery of women – feminists in particular. They are addicted to schadenfreude. This wasn’t quite the Red Pill you thought you swallowed.
“Maybe this makes me a sicko, but I get pleasure when women put themselves into predicaments.
My favorite is when a woman turns down every good man who pursues her only to throw herself at the man who is blatantly a scumbag. Then when the scumbag man mistreats her, she whines and cries about how “there are no good men out there” and “all men are jerks”. Instead of learning from her mistake, she blames men and then REPEATS THE CYCLE!
Back in my mangina days I would try to console those women and reassure these women that there are certainly good men out there. These days I don’t care. And in fact, I find it amusing.”
Okay, yea I get it. I loathe tumblr feminism as well and do my fair share of blasting self-entitled harpies on RVF boards. And yes, I do admit sometimes getting satisfaction seeing the worst offenders reap all of the venom they’ve sown – especially male feminist white knights. The anger? I understand feeling it the lies we were told as well as the women who rejected us for Chads and now are facing the consequences.
However, don’t you ever feel a sense of sadness for them? While they’ve bought into and advocate for an ideology which will make them miserable – and those around them, I often desire to apply actual burn ointment to their 1st degree roasted souls.
Obviously, the differeing worldviews make most online dialogue with them pointless, fruitless, and not worthy of your time. In spite of this when you come across posts like hers, try avoiding another, “haha bitch” type comment that burns as well as points out what feminism has wrought.
Instead maybe just try a semi-neutral heart felt internet hug. Will another comment debunking feminism change their mind and undo years of influence under a feminist worldview? No.
Here’s a question I would put plainly to them without snark: “What do you really want?” You’ll find most women do want to fall in love. Romance. Be swept off their feed by a studly chad. The truth hurts, but it can be presented with chocolates rather then a spear to the stomach. Honey for the flies instead of vinegar.
I find that when I’ve talked to feminists face-to-face, as well as women in general that are very discouraged with their dating prospect, an honest genuine heaping of advice can get past the normal “blockers” and at least onto the plate as food for thought. When a critique is done with kindness, the openness can be shocking. (Plus it helps that they know you have no romantic interest in them – in my case being married and all.)
The Effects of Misery
When women are miserable in particular, it deeply affects them and those around them. Perhaps they deserve it – especially the slut walkers – but do we look past what they deserve for a moment?
Being constantly in a state of war is exhausting – especially when the enemy is a never ending source of social media and blog posts that are filled with venom. Some rad fems may deserve to be burned by the fire they spew, but is mercy ever an option? I’d like to believe so. That Nietzsche quote about gazing into the monster seems to apply here.
Perhaps I’m mellowing a bit, but at a certain point I’d like to see relations between men and women improve wihout some sort of Mad Max like collapse of society – even if those in question aren’t worthy. The author in question might have better luck at a Friday Night Magic tournament where she is surrounded by lots of men and almost no women – so why not point it out?
We know many women who wish they were approached by men they would find attractive. For many it won’t happen. However, we can at least make suggestions to help them make the best of their chances and interactions without malice dripping from our fangs. (Especially if we know them.)
Who knows, maybe finding a guy they fall in love with might bring them out of their stupor. It has for many a woman. Maybe she and they can be one of them – certainly a good thing for culture and society.
Take A Break Or This Broken World Will Drive You Crazy
For the last two months prior to election day, Drudge was linking to various articles about how people were suffering from election induced anxiety, depression, and even sleep loss. Facebook feeds were particularly active and potent regardless of what political bubble you are dwell in.
We all expected the end of the world before night, and it’s only gotten worse post-election for half of the voting public to cope with the election of Cthulu. Detractors of Trump literally believe he’s Hitler, but then again, so is anyone to the right of Hillary. The sky is literally falling and raining pepes.
My Facebook and Twitter blared with insane headlines that even often I thought were too exaggerated to be true. Everything was apocalyptic in nature and possible destruction of our grand modern multi-cultural tolerant world, even though Rome didn’t fall in a day.
Post-election, all of the scoundrels and deplorables favorable to “God-Emperor Trump” were faced with families endearing new crises that unfortunately had nothing to do with drug addled interventions, sibling disputes, and crumbling marriages. Call me ole fashioned, but I’m still shocked that people are avoiding family members because of their despicable politics. Clearly, those politicians will always be there for you, but your family won’t.
To put in perspective how bad the shattering has been just between husbands and wives, the annoying chat-box known as “The View” had a segment in which voting husbands for Trump was causing them to lose their pussy tingles for their studly husbands. Yes, apparently a difference in how you voted was causing the dreaded “deadbedroom” threads we read about. Hammer that nail of sexual intimacy once more to the coffin.
“I think that the sex drive does die and, you know, we are building a wall around our vaginas,” she continued. “The guy [Trump] says it’s okay if he would grab a woman by her you-know-what, and women are either a 10 or a one, or this one’s fat, and you voted for that schmuck?”
“You voted for that? I’m not sleeping with you,” Behar said.
“That’s what’s happening,” Sunny Hostin agreed.
Yep, you read that right. Some people have “marriages” that are truly that dysfunctional and the sex tips in Glamour aren’t possible now. I don’t think adultery/cheating is a good thing, but if your wife, girlfriend, etc. pulled that – using sex as a weapon –I’d immediately hand her divorce papers and start hitting up Tinder as the one night sluts on there will at least give you sex unlike these shrews.
I can’t slap the woman who said that physically, but I most certainly will air slap her from across the deplorable manosphere caverns from which I lurk. Here’s a bold statement though for women – or men – who refuse you sex because of your vote; She doesn’t deserve you, your money, or your capability to be an emotional tampon when she’s crying.
What she so richly does deserve; cats, gawking at other women more attractive then here, and bitching about male feminists hitting on her that she isn’t attracted to. A bit overboard? I’m that sick and tired of it.
But to get back on track, its all too damn much – and that’s just regarding two of the stories that stood out to me the most after being bombarded with one piece of insanity ranging from true to greatly exaggerated after the other. Every story I come across is in all caps, screaming with a bullhorn for my attention – and they all make the world seem like its getting worse after I glance at the headlines.
Surely, I like the rest of you am taking crazy pills, or the world, society, and the culture around us is surely doomed and primed to implode – on a daily basis. Even in our own circles, everything is almost always pessimistic. Feminists are getting more power, safe spaces are smothering meaningful conversation, and we are constantly having to explain to shocked observers, friends, and families that we aren’t actually all those bad ist and isms they keep hearing we are – this is all despite Trumps win which is supposed to greatly move the Overton window…
I’ve noticed how the subject of “Facts” has become extremely subjective. I still don’t know exactly how much Planned Parenthood spends on abortion via Federal Funding because every inquiry on it uses different methods to calculate the statistics. In a world of unlimited data, we can’t see past a hazy cloud of numbers on all sides.
Reliable sources all depend on what side you are on.
Vicious opinionated partial journalism isn’t contrary to the very nature of being a journalist because Trump is the new Hitler. Woodward is jaded and Bernstein is weeping. The very journalists and publications shrieking about fake news are spouting it nonstop with nary a noticeable correction in mind because the damage has been done.
Fake news is now completely up to shadowy corporate internet giants that are deliberately as vague as possible as to how much of your information they are sharing with the government without warrant – and that’s if they haven’t been hit with a gag order preventing them from even talking about it.
What the hell can we actually do about any of this?
Ragequit life? Not quite. Take a brief glance back in history for why you need a respite from the toils of cultural and political dogfighting. As Quintus Curtius – the resident scholar, historian and philosopher of the manosphere points out, sometimes all you need is a retreat to allow you to come back with new ideas for the battlefield.
“Sometimes being away from the fray and the fracases of life can allow us to compose our thoughts and regenerate our spirits. This has the effect of spurring the creative soul on to higher amplitudes of output. We forget just how distracting it is for the mind to be bombarded with invasive stimuli; and while periods of withdrawal from the fray should not be permanent, they can, in the right doses, provide just that right proportion of flint and steel to spark great works.”
Believe it or not, wisdom from the life of Machiavelli can be applied to this situation when he was forced to take a break from the politics of the day. That lesson can be examined at the link previously mentioned.
Besides plan, scheme, and demand answers; nothing in the immediate sense. Which of course represents a knee jerk reaction of feeling like you’ve accomplished no results because everything is measured in the short term – how we feel right now – instead of any kind of long term vision.
Let’s dip our heads into the sand for the moment. Take a step back. We know what’s going on – we just aren’t going to let it break us. Instead we will make love to our women, play with our kids, drink and be merry with our friends, and take those nature hikes. Twitter can wait. A more disturbing and terrible story about the madness of our college campuses will be there tomorrow.
You will survive.
Just make sure you give yourself the breathing room and cultural /social media detox withdrawal to allow yourself to thrive when the world is refusing to budge your way. Take a break, and then come back for another at-bat.
What happens to your old hobbies? They vanish as you and your spouse both envision strangling each other – but don’t.
The above picture is of my wife in her natural habitat – the bath. To pacify her in this time of emotional tyranny, I gave her ice cream and let her chow down right out of the container. I even promised not to make fun of her for it – a promise I’ve somewhat kept. She even had her phone to scroll through Facebook.
I used this precious and rare time to play my current favorite game – Fallout 4 – modded because I have joined the PC master race. Kid in a candystore, but this was one of my final pieces.
Welcome to marriage – pregnancy stage. Prepare yourself gentlemen.
My problem isn’t one that most men complain of – a lack of sex. We average sex twice a day. It’s my pride, the way our fights escalate, the hobbies I don’t want to give up, and the fact that I keep forgetting my wife is my wife – pregnant and not someone you can reason with. Speaking in generalities, women respond to emotions and men to logic – though I’m seeing alot more emotional men these days. I keep forgetting this.
Because I don’t want to be a complete loser, I’m trying to develop more productive hobbies – which does suck. I miss my video games, and I resent the amount of time I’ve been forced to give up playing them – regardless of how “mature” it makes me.
When I get home from work, I want to be lazy. I suppose now that I am a father with one son and another on the way, it is time to be responsible and look into new hobbies that my kids will share with me once they get a bit older.
That video game, I want to play it, without condemnation, nagging, or weird bouts of jealousy that I can drink alcohol and she can’t. To this end, I am in her crosshairs – if she can’t have fun, I can’t either. Now this is illogical, wrong, and plain out vicious, but that doesn’t matter. She’s pregnant and emotional.
My lovely nympho wife will nag me about productivity – which is escalated depending on how bad her pregnancy hormones are that day. Alas, it has me writing more. While I’ve sacrificed my prized video game time, my sex life is that of envy – we average twice a day with passionate bouts of love.
Today, I bring to you the subject of surviving your first year of marriage with a pregnant wife. If you are with a women who is pregnant, throw out everything you know about her before she decided to carry your offspring. Prepare for hell on emotional wheels of wrath.
Her raging, vicious, and unpredictable moodswings are now your problem. She may start crying randomly, and by the end of it taking swings at you because of her rantings about her parents or yours. I’m not even referring to the verbal wrath that you will incur in the process – that’s just a bonus. So what do you do?
But you can pacify it. As a man, it’s one of the most important tools you can learn to use when you have a family.
Behold, I give to you my fellow men, a weapon with which to master her emotions in their raw and uncontrollable state (1); the manly, yet smooth, alluring, and sexual hug.
Now I’m a proud and stubborn man, and when my wife has either hit me or attacked me in the most vicious way with perfectly chosen words to inflict the most damage to my sanity, I don’t want to hug her. (In fact I want to hit her back after she’s hit me.) Again, muh pride.
Shockingly, I swore I would never allow a woman to do this to me. Yet as she is my wife and the mother of my children, my tolerance for BS has gone up – because I love her. Love changes things. It really does. I am a proponent of the manosphere, but my wife is my wife, not just another plate. (Also, dread game is a NO when your wife is pregnant, plus my wife is already very jealous and will beat up other women for looking at me wrong. )
I want to fight back with the nastiest words in my arsenal possible to make her feel the same anguish. “Hurts doesn’t it?”
Indeed it does, especially when she’s pregnant. Of course, she will remember those fights far into the future and berate you later with, “You said these terrible things to me when I was pregnant,” regardless of any words of war directed at you, the suffering father.
Women fight very well with words, a favor I can return. But should I? Should a pregnant women hear anything anything else that will make her emotions scream? Stress is also an issue and it can cause miscarriages. My pride though. It’s very angry and upset. It’s been unjustly wounded. Yet again, I swallow it, or at least I should.
Hug her tight – from behind and then move to the front. Slowly massage her shoulders and lower back. Get her calmed down. Physical touch will do what the most logical of words will not. Kiss her neck, suck on her earlobe a bit. Then notice what starts to happen. Her face changes.
Your other weapon (2) : Angry frustrated pent up sex.
When women are pregnant, their raging hormones need to be released. They are bottled up like a kid holding his breath. Sexist sounding or not, the truth is the truth. So take control of the situation and arouse your wife in the process.
Those raging hormones? Well, release them. Direct them toward the bed. Or couch. Or bathroom.
If your wife already has a high sex drive, pregnancy will GREATLY escalate it. So grab her pants, and drop them down. Get aggressive. Wrestle with her in that bed. Or on the floor. Your video games may suffer, but your sex life will rise to new hard peaks.
So many of our fights could have been de-escalated, but since I was mad at her from her either hitting me or trashing me, I didn’t want to have sex with her – I was too livid. I had too much pride. A simple hug and escalation to sex could have solved it.
I must admit, she’s even told me to hug her and hold her tight – and also to pull her pants down when we are fighting. In this, me and her are different. My anger at that moment, I must swallow. She doesn’t need words of logic about why she is being an unreasonable bitch -something she knows as well. She needs a hug and to be led to the bedroom.
Never underestimate the power of sex.
Learn from me, swallow your anger at that moment, and pound it out deep. Never has there been a more perfect time for a spanking in that love making. She will love you, and you will love her.
#RaceTogether is a minefield filled with short-tempered caffeine deprived customers who consider the concept of patience to be hate-speech rather then a virtue. Then throw in some barbed wired and machine gun nests known as the smart-phone.
Every one has a smart phone these days that can record any conversation – a blessing and a curse. It’s a foregone conclusion that any actual honest dialogue can take place between groups of extremely racially sensitive people. Your words are a tweet away from being broadcast to the dark corners of tumblr dwelling other-kins and SJWs who haven’t forget that people with dissenting opinions are actual humans. Davis Aurini makes a good point about this:
That is just the obvious hindrance. The actual primary problem is that people view this entire idea as less of a conversation and more of a, “I’m mad at your kind of people for these reasons,” lecture. Actual dialogue on a subject so controversial can’t take place in any public setting as you could lose your job.
In fact, it doesn’t actually matter if you are what society considers to be a “racist” or any one of the “ists” these days. Once accused in the public eye – or rather the social media feed – you are guilty until proven innocent which means you are forever guilty on a basic Google search.
Perhaps Schultz has been preparing his guinea pigs for these kinds of experiments all along and actually intends to scare off some of his already well-off liberal white types who spend 3k+ on Starbucks a year. After all, how many flak barrages intended to induce white self-loathing can these types endure?
Schultz’s idea will create friendly fire situations and the casualties will be his own fellow ideologues. Think about it, how many of the intended targets – backwater redneck conservative stereotypes – actually frequent Starbucks who aren’t actively boycotting it? That was a rhetorical question.
Despite the backlash and drubbing coming from various sides of the spectrum , some of the mainstream media consider this a great idea. Time Magazine actually proclaimed #RaceTogether as a “brilliant” and “bold move” rather then a kamikaze mission in which allies will have their eco friendly cars sunk. No, this doesn’t make me happy, it makes me sad.
What about the dialogue?
An honest conversation about race will only occur (1) between friends & family with liquor involved and the smartphones put away and (2) when people stop seeing every last damn thing through a racial lens – namely SJWs and many on the left who base their entire identity off race rather then the actual person.
Remember, vast generalizations and labels of people based on their race, ethnicity, and gender are perfectly acceptable as long as it’s the right people. Being judged based on who you are is just too tiresome and isn’t convenient for being a part of the continual victim club.
