The Four Pillars of Anglosphere Dysfunction: Social Isolation, Materialism, Class Distinction and Puritanism
Having read all the articles and insightful commentary on this excellent site, it occurs to me that the Anglosphere’s misandrist agenda can be reduced to four broad conceptual fields or ‘pillars’. These interact in various ways and all are present in the Anglosphere nations, to a greater or lesser degree.
The first pillar is social isolation. In the Anglosphere, the individual develops in relative isolation and is expected to be self-motivated, socially combative and emotionally repressed from early childhood. Heartless schools and educational institutions take on many of the socialization duties normally provided by the (now defunct) nuclear family, which is why so many Anglo-Americans are damaged and enraged. Because they grow up in relative isolation, they are far more reliant on the mainstream media for identity formation than children in comparable societies. This explains why a massive proportion of Anglo-Americans suffer symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder, harbouring fantastical expectations culled from movies and TV shows.
Cultural dissidents like Winston Wu and Steve Hoca talk at length about the friendlier, more sociable attitudes that prevail outside the United States, even in countries with relatively low standards of living. They also talk about the obsessive focus on work that mars American social life (work does not have to eclipse everything else, as prosperous Scandinavian societies demonstrate).
Anglo-American culture is defined above all by its rapacious materialism – the second pillar of dysfunction. According to the French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan, human personality is essentially a void ‘created’ by external associations in early childhood. Because of dysfunctional child rearing by narcissistic, self-absorbed parents, Anglo-American self-identity tends to be shaped by material objects rather than human interaction. This explains the voidlike sterility of Anglo culture, and its overriding fixation on material goods as ‘food’ for the needful self.
In fact, the Borderline Personality Disorder so rampant among Anglo-American women is perfectly adapted (some would say designed) to feed the rapacious Matrix and its consumerist hamster wheel. In particular, the United States is a gynocentric brothel wherein men acquire material junk to get sex from empty, frigid women in a culture which deliberately raises the scarcity value of sex to inhuman levels. The demerits of such a society for men are self-evident, and explain the existential disaffection so common among Anglo-American males.
The third pillar of Anglo-American dysfunction is the class system. Britain and the United States both have relatively low rates of social mobility compared to other industrialized democracies. Both countries are run by impermeable, self-contained socio-economic elites who attend private schools and frankly know little about mainstream experience or opinion. This is why Anglosphere populations are increasingly alienated from politics and think they have no control over their own lives. We have moved beyond a situation where people vote for competing parties to one where they are voting against the political class itself.
Of course, people are free to enjoy the fruits of their own labour and pass these advantages on to their families (or whoever they see fit). However, in the Anglosphere this has led to the formation of political dynasties and an inflexible Deep State which are essentially undemocratic and do not serve the interests of the majority. Weird trends in Anglo-American foreign policy (for example Britain giving foreign aid to countries with space programmes or hopeless American attempts to democratize Islamic nations) originate in the detached and eccentric nature of the Anglo-American elite. Not all Anglosphere countries are thus defined; Canada and Australia are among the most classless countries in the world. However, these countries are increasingly ruled by idiomatic elites and will soon resemble their older cousins.
Latent Puritanism Suffocates Anglo-America
The fourth factor is, of course, residual Puritanism. Although religion is not the force it once was, the distinctive Puritanism of the Anglo-Saxon countries persists as secular Puritanism or repressive political correctness. This is the definitive core of Anglo-American feminism and explains the institutional misandry which dominates the modern Anglosphere. The Sixties Sexual Revolution was a brief anomaly and misandrist feminism has largely restored Victorian morality to every public arena: a man risks imprisonment for even talking to a woman in many places.
Prostitution remains illegal in Britain and North America, and men who pay for sex are still morally and legally criminalized. Most males outside the top 20% in terms of looks, money and status will experience long periods of celibacy if they do not marry young (and even if they do). The lamestream media still tries to peddle the myth of the sexualized Anglo-American woman; however, this narrative is created and maintained by sex-obsessed gay men and bears little resemblance to reality.
In sum, Anglo feminism is now the major issue confronting males across the Anglosphere. Originally created to defend women’s ‘rights’, Anglo feminism has morphed into a puritanical Gorgon obsessed with stigmatizing heterosexual sex, excluding fathers from their children, pathologizing masculinity, promoting transexuality, driving men from higher education and… well, you know the score by now.
Together, these four factors cohere to make romantic life extremely difficult for most Anglo-American males. For example, class is closely linked to both materialism and sexual repression in the Anglo countries. The hyper-hypergamy of Anglo-American women – the assumption that they are divine angels too good for any man – obviously springs from this warped association. Opponents of the Manosphere ridicule its denizens as marginalised eccentrics – keyboard warriors and alienated deplorables. However, the Manosphere draws inspiration from lived experience in the Anglosphere and its four pillars of dysfunction. And its message has spread because of ‘truth marketing’: the experience of daily life in this culture simply supports its general arguments.
