The Noble Spirit

Out of the depths of Anglo American matriarchal, materialistic hell a noble spirit can arise. But first, you’ve got to get mad. Then, you’ve got to get busy. Next, you’ve got to start taking risks.

From the Oswald Spengler channel on YouTube comes a philosophy of how to live a life worth living, not exist as a human farm animal. (Regular readers of TNMM may know Spengler’s Decline of the West is a founding philosophy of this blog and The New Modern Man movement. There will be much more coming on Spengler and the guidance his philosophy brings men, soon.)

Watch The Noble Spirit and awaken the masculinity inside you with such pearls of wisdom taken from the philosophy of Nietzsche such as:

Build your cities on the walls of Vesuvius. Send your ships out into uncharted seas. Explore new worlds!

Indeed, risk-taking and exploration allow a man to see beyond his time, his continent, his country, and the narrow circle of his own activities – to paraphrase Spengler. There is no reward without risk. But, even if you fail, know this:

A great life is a hard life. Hardship brings out the best in men. Pain and pleasure are sisters, one elevates the other.

Psychological research confirms this. There can be no pleasure without pain. The human psyche thrives on the sine wave of life’s ups and downs. Embrace your life for what it is, then aspire to make yourself more than what you are:

The purpose of life is life itself, and the purpose of living is to embrace that life, whether it be joyous or tragic.

Personally, much of my life has been tragic. From the death of my father when I was 12, to clawing my way out of poverty then ascending the ladder of the news industry only to find out what a farce it is, an industry filled with glib sociopaths, then being raked across the hot coals of bankruptcy as I was forced out of my position (fired) by social engineers and political correctness, before taking another job with the MSM and painstakingly paying my Chapter 13 off, then finally breaking with Corporate America permanently, I’ve had my share of disappointment and suffering.

There’s much more than that. Those are just Cliff’s Notes. I won’t even go into the abortions I had to endure and the pain I felt as my offspring were killed and I was helpless to do anything about it.

But all that just lit a fire inside me. I didn’t let it extinguish me as many men do and that flame burns to this day, as I let those lessons be my motivation to be daring and to design a life around my desires rather than chasing after material fantasies. I no longer want any of the chains Corporate America is selling. The “comfortable” life on the human farm.

The religion of the herd is comfort and safety. They avoid suffering, but at the loss of greater pleasure and fulfillment. It is a kind of dull, boring, “living dead” existence.

Time is of the essence.

Better a life of action, full of deeds. Raise your head above the herd, and you will find excitement in life.

Don’t be afraid to try new things.

A noble spirit invites new challenges, as a way to test their own strength and character.

Indeed, these talking points are weaved into the fabric of TNMM whenever possible. A philosophy like this will take a man much farther than any of the pablum force fed to him by the edumacation system and the corrupt media.

Learn lessons like these well. Then use them to change your life.

New Wine in Old Skins: Is the Manosphere’s Red Pill a Return to Traditional Elitism?

The manosphere has much in common with traditional Western thinking

Rookh Kshatriya is the creator of the Anglobitch blog, The Anglobitch Thesis and the author of Havok: How Anglo-American Feminism Ruined Society.


One of my favourite pastimes is putting historical meat on the bare bones of Manosphere theory. Although much Red Pill thought focuses on twenty-first century concerns (educational devaluation, student debt, minimalism, Game), the perspectives underlying it have a long and illustrious pedigree. Indeed, our outlook has much in common with a rich vein of elitist western thought that is centuries old.

German thinkers like Stirner, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche and Spengler, Italians like Vilfredo Pareto and Julius Evola as well as Britons like Hillaire Belloc and D.H. Lawrence were all united in contempt for mass society and its deluded assumptions. Due to American egalitarianism and legalistic puritanism, American elitists such as Ezra Pound and Henry Miller have long sought freedom in more enlightened societies.

Professor John Carey’s excellent study The Intellectuals and the Masses rounds up some of the core beliefs of the western creative intelligentsia:

  • Voting is a waste of time; electoral fanfare is a smokescreen to delude the masses into thinking they have a voice when all important decisions are really made by unelected elites
  • The mass media cannot be trusted; having to dumb down to the masses’ primitive levels of knowledge and understanding, it is inherently dishonest (Ezra Pound called the press ‘Liars for Hire’)
  • Elite rule is inevitable, even desirable; Pareto’s Iron Law of Oligarchy claimed that all social systems inevitably produce an elite, usually the most able people in any social group
  • Anglo-American culture is inferior; it has no roots in tradition and its egalitarian obsessions lead inevitably to the lowest common denominator in all things (this view is especially strong among English elitists such as D.H. Lawrence)
  • Women are defective herd creatures; allowing women to rule or pandering to their whims inevitably leads to societal collapse
  • History moves in cycles of growth and decay; the West is presently in its Autumn/Winter period, on the verge of complete collapse (also known as the Kali Yuga in Indian scripture)
  • Women want to be possessed by strong, dominant men; feminism is a smokescreen to deny this fact
  • The mass mind is inherently female; hence the mass desire to be dominated by hyper-masculine leaders who embody virility and strength (Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Kennedy, Trump)
  • Eastern spiritual culture is superior in most respects; while Western Christianity is weak, feminine and egalitarian, Hinduism and Buddhism are strong, manly and elitist. This view is especially strong among German elitists, who saw ‘feminine’ Protestant Christianity as central to Western decline (Schopenhauer, Spengler)
  • Solitude is desirable; the elite should live in lonely mountain areas, far from the masses dwelling in the valleys below. As Nietzsche put it, ‘Establish distances!’
  • Minimalism is desirable; indeed, a solitary life demands it. The philosopher Martin Heidegger spent most of his free time in a cabin in the Black Forest, chopping his own wood and scorning the trappings of civilization
  • Experiencing sensualist ‘Dionysian’ cultures is desirable; it liberates one from repressive Anglo-American culture, women and consumerism (D.H. Lawrence, Miller, Hemingway and many others followed this path, which Lawrence called the ‘The Savage Pilgrimage’)

It does not take Sherlock Holmes to see obvious links between these ideas and many of our own values. In fact, RF has combined such elitist concepts with American individualism to craft an exciting, vigorous lifestyle of great interest to enlightened American men. Minimalism, separatism, travel and social detachment are central to this lifestyle and all these values are associated with elitist thought.

Not only did these thinkers argue that modern democracy was a smokescreen concealing elite rule (the hypothetical ‘Deep State’), they also considered elitism the best social system. This belief is less common in the manosphere, and it is unlikely that Anglo-American Red Pillers will ever accede to it. However, is there anything they can learn from the traditional power elites in their own quest for autonomy, enlightenment and self-actualization?

Although many New Media celebrities like Alex Jones rail against the elite, the Anglosphere elites are themselves extremely Red Pilled. For one thing, they educate their children at private schools which stress individualism and self-reliance, not herd conformity. Mass culture never infects these schools which repel it with strict discipline, a classical curriculum and age old traditions.

The elites live in urban and rural enclaves, inoculated from the masses by high walls and hedges. While elite media moguls such as Rupert Murdoch disseminate prolefeed to the sheeple, the standards they expect from their own families are very high: ‘Charades’ in the Murdoch household made reference to plays by Aeschylus.

In sum, elites ARE elites because they shun the dysfunctional Blue Pill behaviours of the masses. In a couple of decades, the Rothschilds escaped from ghettos in central Europe to become the world’s bankers. Similarly, the Kennedys began life in America as despised Irish Catholics. Rather than hating on them, enlightened men should strive to learn from their example.

Only in one field is elite example irrelevant: mating. Simply put, elite tradition and family precedent generally deter their women from feeding the frivorce anarchy that has effectively killed marriage among other social strata. For men outside the elite, exotic foreign shores are the only answer.

It’s Like He Had a Crystal Ball

rotary-camera-1316677_1280

Cameras like these are appearing even on remote Interstate highways…for your own safety, of course. Or is it something else?

We are living in an amalgam of Brave New World, 1984, and Fahrenheit 451 in the West. All three novels are coming to fruition, from the manipulation of reproduction, sexuality, and psychology in Brave New World, to the surveillance state watching every move of its citizens in 1984, to the coming censorship of books and blogs that don’t support the regime’s interests in Fahrenheit 451.

Take this quote from Huxley, author of Brave New World, speaking with Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes. It’s almost as if the man had a crystal ball, peering into the dystopia of today’s world.

I think this kind of dictatorship of the future will be very unlike the dictatorships which we’ve been familiar with in the immediate past. I mean, take another book prophesying the future, which was a very remarkable book, George Orwell’s “1984.”

Well, this book was written at the height of the Stalinist regime, and just after the Hitler regime, and there he foresaw a dictatorship using entirely the methods of terror, the methods of physical violence. Now, I think what is going to happen in the future is that dictators will find, as the old saying goes, that you can do everything with bayonets except sit on them!

But, if you want to preserve your power indefinitely, you have to get the consent of the ruled, and this they will do partly by drugs as I foresaw in “Brave New World,” partly by these new techniques of propaganda.

They will do it by bypassing the sort of rational side of man and appealing to his subconscious and his deeper emotions, and his physiology even, and so, making him actually love his slavery.

I mean, I think, this is the danger that actually people may be, in some ways, happy under the new regime, but that they will be happy in situations where they oughtn’t to be happy.

As the tyranny men crossed an ocean to run away from grows back with a vengeance, most Americans (especially conservatives) are able to delude themselves into thinking “It can’t happen here.” It is happening here, fools.

Indeed, the flag-wavers who love their freedom as long as it isn’t breaking the countless laws that have been passed to control them (what a contradiction!) actually love their slavery. Someone might ask these men what freedoms do they have that aren’t taxed, regulated, or straight up illegal?

Which leaves us here, with yet more sage wisdom from the prophetic author.

That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons that history has to teach.

Huxley knew that men never collectively learn from history despite all their posturing. Only a small minority of men will ever be able to see what history has to teach, and know what might happen in the future by learning from the past. These men will always be vilified and mocked by the masses, until the truth they’re trying to elucidate becomes self-evident.

It’s as if the learned man can do nothing except watch himself being dragged into hell with the masses, as the world descends into tyranny once again.

Reader Request: How Does a Red Pill Man Find Other Awakened Men?

cave-1835825_1280

Not every man can exit Plato’s Cave

Thanks to our reader Erik for his donation which sponsors this article on The New Modern Man. Have your own questions answered and help us spread The Truth About Women and the World by sponsoring an article on our blog.


Erik writes:

How does a red pill man find his own tribe (other men) in this world?

It’s a blue pill world, and by the time you are in your 30s and 40s, you may not have the same extensive social network you once had in your teens and 20s. Old friends change, move for work, get married, etc.

I’m a mountaineer, and for several years I worked hard to create and maintain friendships based upon that hobby. I was the guy putting trips together, helping newcomers to the sport, etc. But many men are beholden to their LTRs/wives in a way that prevents them from serving their own interests. Guys get shit tested a lot and they end up choosing activities that are more domestic.

So, how do you find your own tribe? Are some men better off as a lone wolf?

First off, congratulations to Erik for mastering such a masculine, wellness generating hobby as mountain climbing.

This is no doubt a conundrum many men will find themselves in as they become Red Pill aware.

As an awakened man finds himself no longer under the spell of the shadows in Plato’s cave and begins exiting The Anglo-American Matrix mentally and spiritually, there will no doubt be tension between him and the men who still seek unicorns for love and marriage, who pedestalize women, and believe in politicians and the mainstream media.

For those who aren’t already familiar with it, Plato’s Allegory of the Cave shows us there have been a class of men like us in the manosphere who have searched for the light of truth no matter where it may lead for thousands of years, rather than living lives in the dark as the masses do. The allegory is presented in Plato’s Republic:

Plato describes a group of people who have lived chained to the wall of a cave all of their lives, facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall from objects passing in front of a fire behind them, and give names to these shadows. The shadows are the prisoners’ reality. Socrates explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the wall are not reality at all, for he can perceive the true form of reality rather than the manufactured reality that is the shadows seen by the prisoners. The inmates of this place do not even desire to leave their prison; for they know no better life.

A number of lessons can be gleaned from this allegory when compared and contrasted alongside the modern life of an awakened man.

As you begin to see beyond the shadows, Blue Pill friends will inevitably drift away from and even avoid you because they’re still under the illusion of the myths society creates to keep the average man in line. Scorn will also be heaped upon you by those who cannot see beyond the shadows…those such as feminists, SJWs, White Knights, etc.

Feminists will also despise you as they see you as a threat to their well-established con game.

In this regard, while becoming a Red Pill man is extremely liberating, it can also be very isolating in that we will always be a minority amongst men and will never be able to talk openly about what we know with those still under the spell of the mythmakers. Their power is a strong (or stronger) now than it was 2,000 years ago as we find ourselves trapped in an Age of Public Relations and Propaganda.

Thankfully, the Internet provides a meeting place, a refuge for the Red Pill man. We can also choose to spend our time doing activities and in places where there are men who think like us. I’ve personally found a large number of expat men are of the same overall mentality as me.

Many of us likely will end up as lone wolves in some way as in my personal life I’ve found I can only go so far with Red Pill knowledge with most of my friends. Some are tolerant of th unpopular truths we accept as reality, while others are scared to death by them.

Some men will just never be able to make the leap and be a strong willed man rather than a pushover Beta male. I’ve personally seen this happen with a close friend of mine, who was frivorce raped but still allows women he dates to have control over him to this day.

valentine-1953779_1280

Many men never stop clinging to “mommy’s” apron and this makes them weak in the eyes of women

Beholden to Women, Clinging to the Apron

Erik goes on to share a personal story about how Blue Pill men often completely lose themselves in a relationship. This provides a good cautionary tale for other men out there about not letting women assume control over you.

An acquaintance in Denver approached me and said he thought he’d be interested in climbing mountains (based upon my reputation).  His LTR said, “Sure, do it.”  The guy is a highly motivated professional and I helped him select gear, train physically, and learn backcountry skills such as navigation, camping, rope handling, etc.

I set a goal with my new friend, a mountain we’d climb together after a couple trips of shorter duration to train and practice working together.  The entire ramp up to the big goal was about 12 months in duration.  This activity did not take over his life; We did three weekend trips together in 12 months to train and test equipment, he was generally in charge of his own progression.

This guy was loving every second of it.  Initially, his wife supported it.  My friend ran, lifted weights, completed a short course offered by a local organization, and tested gear and techniques.  But as we got close to the big goal, and she was still overweight by about 20 pounds, she started shit testing him.

  • “You can’t just leave me alone for a full week . . .”
  • “I don’t know if you’re in good enough shape for this . . .”
  • “Don’t you have stuff to do around the house . . .”

I tried to coach him a little, but he failed those shit tests.

There’s an important lesson here.

A woman will always try to push a man around to see what he’s made of. The best a man can do is to be firm with his decisions, be self-serving, and make his own decisions rather than succumbing to fleeting female desires.

In short, it pays dividends to be an asshole.

Women respect assholes. They loathe Beta males who let women make their decisions for them. Guys should know women don’t know what they want most of the time anyway, and have to be informed of what their opinion is by a strong willed man. (Unfortunately, the media have assumed the role of decision maker for women today, taking it away from men who have grown progressively weaker in the last 50 years.)

Continuing from Erik’s story, his acquaintance got weak in the knees after his wife started badgering his decison to pursue mountain climbing adventures and self-improvement:

In the end, we managed to do the big trip together, we summited the mountain, but he was a mental wreck.

No doubt he didn’t know what to do because she intensified the shit tests mentioned above. Beta males will always default to a position in which they allow women unwarranted influence over their personal lives.

This woman sounds like a typical Anglobitch, who spins about three or four different narratives at once. Women like this often stir up controversy just to see where the cards fall.

While she creates self-doubt in her husband and her plan to make him stop mountain climbing succeeds, deep down inside she begins to loathe him because no woman respects a weak, pussy-whipped man.

During the end of that year I had a plate who got to know my friend’s wife (very briefly.)  Oddly enough, the wife told my plate a couple times that my friend was a “nuisance” around the house, sex with him was boring (“He climbs on top of me missionary!”) and she wished he would “do something for himself, to be more interesting.” THIS, DURING THE TIME SHE WAS SHIT TESTING HIM.

Notice, this female shit testing her man – trying to get him to doubt himself and cling to her apron – while at the same time complaining about him doing exactly what she wants him to do!

What a twisted universe the female mind is.

After first doubting her husband, then complaining because he obviously didn’t pass her shit test, she then goes on to make a pass at Erik!

I ran into my friend’s wife once downtown.  She walked real close to me and said, “______ just sits on the couch.  I wish he was as devoted to something as you are.”  In that moment I felt I could have slept with her.  I decided to keep that to myself.  These women, they get the Beta males they asked for.

The story ends in a predictable way.

In the end, he said he was just too busy at work to climb anymore. He seems happy to be under her dominion.  I can’t climb with a guy like that.  We have nothing in common.

This story is a tragedy that plays out countless times. Men, so motivated by a desire for regular sex and female companionship make way too many concessions to women who enjoy pushing weak Beta males around. This is not a good position for a man to be in.

His fear of losing his woman will actually make him lose his woman by supplicating to her wishes.

In many ways, there’s just no helping a guy like this as they’ll only get angry at you for challenging the cultural indoctrination that makes them behave in such a manner.

In short, my answer to Erik is we can lead a horse to water but we can’t make him drink. We can try to wake men up with daily doses and small, bite size portions of Red Pill knowledge. It’s up to them to use it to make change in their lives.

In the meantime, taking a live and let live approach has helped me deal with this conundrum. I live my life the way I see fit, and so should other awakened men. But we have to accept some guys are just not salvageable, and that we who escape the mind control surrounding us will always be isolated in some way.

Traveling to locations that have lots of expats has been the best way I’ve found so far to meet other awakened individuals face to face. Expats seem to intuitively know what lies we are surrounded by, and many are fleeing feminist dominated nations and sexual repression. And of course, on men’s web sites like Return of Kings, The Savage Lifestyle and this one offer places to meet and discuss ideas with other Red Pill guys. That’s about all we have for the time being, unfortunately.

Not every man is capable of exiting the cave, or letting go of the apron. Our decision is to become another sheepish follower, or a lone wolf who does whatever he wants.

Evolutionary Baggage and Genetic Programming Make the Liberal Utopia Mere Fantasy

skyscrapers-1805227_1280

The vison of a liberal Utopia is fraught with scientific and sociological problems

Liberals constantly tout the Utopian vision of a world without any sort of problems, one in which mankind turns on a dime and greed, hostility to outsiders, and all the other baggage of our species that led to such tragedies as the Salem Witch Trials, the Spanish Inquisition, and two World Wars will just magically evaporate.

It’s a nice political selling point. But it’s also rife with hypocrisy. First and foremost is the myopic view that vocal dissent must be crushed and everyone must behave according to liberal paradigms or they’re racist, sexist, or some other kind of -ist.

The liberal vision of Utopia is particularly troubling since maniacal billionaires who support it obviously wish to mold humanity in such a way there will be only two classes – servants and elite – in the future, likely with no middle class at all. Bureaucrats and their paymasters are doing this with the establishment of an electronic tyranny the likes of which the world has never seen.

What a way to end a 4.5 billion year evolutionary heritage, a planet of masters and slaves.

An electronic dog collar is slowly appearing in fits and starts as social engineers seek to destroy mankind’s independence and freewill with an electronic bureaucracy that will follow him from cradle to grave. This electronic tyranny will monitor his every move, every action, and will use man’s money against him as the elimination of cash (in the minds of elites and other liberals) will create a world or borg in which there is blind submission to authority or else.

It’s a world of B.F. Skinner’s classical conditioning, using tech to do so. Somehow, impoverishing mankind and taking away his freewill in service of the collective is supposed to make everything right.

lion-425150_1280

The Law of the Jungle still applies in the business, financial, and sexual worlds even though humans try to hide it with sophistry

Evolutionary Baggage

One only need spend a short time around humanity to realize we are all flawed. Even though the media touts the virtues of the paymasters in the elite class as if they’re some sort of demigods with a love for humanity rather than the contempt they so often show through their actions, the story of how they became elite is troublesome. They built their empires on the backs of other men.

The corporation we are all supposed to worship, a bastardization of a true free market economy displays all the traits of a psychopath. Yet, we’re never supposed to question its motives or its authority over our lives.

This conundrum is pointed out in the film The Corporation, recommended viewing on The New Modern Man.

If corporations are indeed “persons,” their mental condition can accurately be described as pathological. Corporations have no innate moral impulses, and in fact they exist solely for the purpose of making money. As such, these “persons” are systemically driven to do whatever is necessary to increase revenues and profits, with no regard for ethical issues that might nag real people.

This is why America has become a culture of selling out. There is no culture other than slavish adherence to consumption, especially shopping and eating out, in modern times. Well, maybe football since you have to appease the “deplorables” with circuses, too, and not just bread.

Continuing from the synopsis of The Corporation:

But, you say, corporations are owned and managed by real people, so surely immoral corporate actions might be inhibited by them? Well, not really. First of all, the officers and directors who run corporations are actually duty-bound to act in the corporation’s best financial interest, and that means they are obliged to do whatever they can within the law to make money. Thus, this fiduciary duty requires corporate management to set aside ethical niceties when they get in the way of corporate profits. This is why tobacco companies market their products to kids when they can – only laws prohibiting such conduct will keep them from doing so.

In effect, The Corporation and its preisthood – the elite – have become cancers on humanity rather than capitalist ventures helping mankind as pointed out by John McMurtry.

Of course, there is nothing inherently wrong with capitalism when the playing field is not manipulated by a servile government in such a way it creates a playing field in which the little guy is forced out of the game, and corporations control every avenue of the economy and government.

Once this happens, an unelected autocracy assumes control of the economy and society itself as Spengler warned would happen 100 years ago. He called it “Economic powers permeating the political forms and authorities.” That’s exactly what has happened as the West enters steep decline.

This is the Cancer Stage of Capitalism, one that could mestastisize and consume the whole of humanity.

Genes determine much of human behavior in ways that can’t easily be modified

Genetic Programming

Ever since life arose on this small, humble planet third from the sun, there has been one rule that stands tall above all other rules: The desire every organism has to survive and thrive. Unfortunately, our species has been imbued with Machiavellian Intelligence. This is in addition to other genetic traits that are difficult if not impossible to “train” out of men.

Larceny is in the hearts of all men, and especially in the elite classes since one must forgo humanity it order to rise to the peak of those institutions. Blogger Dylan Charles explains:

A common thread between many of the world’s great political and social leaders is their willingness to call out the major banks and bankers for their complicity in establishing and maintaining economic tension and international conflict in our world.

Again, cancer serves as a good metaphor for what is happening. Charles continues:

Jesus whipped the money changers when he drove them from the Temple for turning his Father’s house into a den of thieves, and since the days of Christ, history is the story of a never-ending struggle between houses of finance and public interests.

Make no mistake, we on the public interest side are losing this battle as the 21st century progresses.

There is no “you” in kleptocracy

A Submissive Humanity

To the freethinking, independent man of will, blindand forced submission to unjust authority is the worst of all possible nightmares.

As Mahatma Gandhi knew, peaceful resistance is the first line of defense in guarding against the incursion of the State into the life of the individual.

Gary McGee eluciated this strategy in a recent article on The Waking Times:

So what is a proactive citizen to do? First things first: we should question all laws, even the ones that we take for granted. We must ask ourselves, is this law valid? Does this man-made law agree with cosmic law and the natural order of things? Is this law healthy, especially in regard to progressive human evolution? Is this law just, especially in regard to the balance of power? Is this law sustainable, especially in regard to environmental health? Above all, we must ask ourselves if we have the courage it takes to become an outlaw when such laws aim to outlaw freedom.

As a renegade blog, The New Modern Man has already come under fire from hateful social justice warriors and most recently was targeted by Pixton, the company we paid to illustrate our Be Like Dirk comics series. We have been forced to remove the comics even though they were paid for due to some esoteric legal technicalities.

This obviously points to a censorship agenda.

Much like the Samizdat in Russia, as the censorship agenda intensifies blogs like The New Modern Man and Return of Kings will increasingly come under fire from authoritarian leftists.

Perhaps the tale of humanity doesn’t end with a bang, but a whimper as it is subjected to servitude in its final hours. McGee continues:

The gravest threat facing us as a nation is not extremism—delivered by way of sovereign citizens or radicalized Muslims—but despotism, exercised by a ruling class whose only allegiance is to power and money.

Indeed, the love of money and psychopathic greed may be the source of the next population bottleneck our species will be forced through. It seems that pesky evolutionary baggage and genetic programing aren’t going anywhere, no matter how much virtue signaling and Machiavellian deception leftists strangle us with.

Where do we go from peaceful resistance if that tactic does not work?

Life is a Brief Dance in the Sun

crab-nebula-2008539_1280

Even stars die – the Crab Nebula contains the remains of a supernova that blew itself up

Our lives are so small. In the West, we take the details much too seriously without seeing the big picture. We are lost amongst the trees without ever seeing the forest.

We never seem to live in the now, always focusing on delayed gratification rather than cherishing each moment as it happens. This attitude holds us hostage even as there are metaphors all around us that nothing lasts forever. Up in the sky, even the universe tells us existence isn’t permanent. Supernovae are testament that even something as seemingly unending as suns also die.

The universe is 13.6 billion years old. We only recently arrived on the scene. And the way things are going, we may soon exit stage right as the H. Sapiens knack for challenging our own survival becomes more worrisome with each passing year when compared and contrasted alongside our exponentially increasing technological prowess. Astrophysicist Carl Sagan knew the danger well:

We’ve arranged a global civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.

If it’s not a diabolical elite sucking the life right out of humanity as it seeks to socially engineer our species into an electronically chipped planet of masters and farm animals, we may yet blow ourselves up with a massive nuclear weaponry at the hands of a psychopathic elite. Who knows exactly what will take out humanity permanently, but with well over 99% of all the species that have ever lived on earth being extinct, we are at best a transitional species that will morph into something else given evolutionary pressures.

We seem to have lost perspective (if we ever had it to begin with) on what’s really important in life as we analyze and criticize without ever taking the time to enjoy ourselves. Unlike Rome, we don’t even seem to enjoy our sexuality anymore in the Anglosphere as latent Puritanism has morphed into virulent feminism. They sure knew how to live back in those days.

Our more immediate ancestors, who had much more difficult lives than us never forgot the importance of the human part of the equation of living. But the modern West is becoming bereft of culture and has lost its passion for being alive. We have made life into a problem to be solved rather than a thing to be lived. Western culture strives for the infinite, as Spengler knew, but this is an impossible goal.

Infinity is going to consume us if we don’t pull back and focus on the temporal.

ballerina-1850109_1280

“I could have missed the pain, but I’d of had to miss…The Dance…”

La Vida es Una

The West seems to think it can live forever.

We don’t seem to grasp the fact everything dies. We die. Cultures die. Even Earth and the sun will die someday. As the sun continues heating up, the oceans of the planet will boil away in another billion years, if it takes that long. (That’s real global warming, caused by the sun – not man!) The sun will later balloon into a massive Red Giant swallowing the remains of our planet before it fades into old age as a White Dwarf.

We deny our mortality and the life and death cycles on the cosmic stage in a vain search for the eternal fountain of youth. One sees the longing for the infinite in Western culture today as our entire lives have become vivisected from the macro scale to the micro scale. The obsession with living a picture perfect life to sanitizing every last germ pervades the land.

The culture is now focused on problems and solutions rather than experiences and living. Philosopher Alan Watts knew the price of always worrying about every little detail rather than experiencing each moment for what it is:

No valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now… Life exists only at this very moment, and in this moment it is infinite and eternal. For the present moment is infinitely small; before we can measure it, it has gone, and yet it exists forever… You may believe yourself out of harmony with life and its eternal Now; but you cannot be, for you are life and exist Now.

Indeed, a nihilistic mood in the West threatens our long-term prospects.

From childhood we are commanded to focus on the future rather than the here and now. School children are told to plan for college, adolescents to plan for careers, and adults to plan for retirement. Always living for some future moment that never arrives has created a sense of hopelessness and despair.

This poem reflects the situation in a culture that is always trying to get ahead of itself:

First I was dying to finish high school and start college.
Then I was dying to finish college and start working.
Then I was dying to marry and have children.
Then I was dying for my children to grow old enough for school so I could return to work.
And then I was dying to retire.
And now, I am dying – and suddenly I realize that I forgot to live.

Dale Carnegie also lamented a culture that has forgotten how to achieve balance. Americans dedicate themselves to work and career obsession without enjoying the fruits of their labor beyond binging on shopping and eating indulgences. Carnegie wrote:

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

It might seem odd to those who haven’t analyzed their lives using this microscope when a man decides to abandon the life script everyone else goes by and proceeds to march to his own drummer, living a life of adventures, experiences, and sexual fulfillment rather than imprisoning himself in the McMansions and debt slavery everyone else considers to be the pinnacle of existence.

But if there’s any wisdom to be gained from the study of astronomy and cosmology, it’s that we aren’t going to be around forever, life comes but once, and we should endeavor to turn our lives into a self-creating masterpiece of our own unique design.

Life may be painful and difficult in many ways, but in the words of Tony Arata who wrote one of Garth Brooks’ most poignant hits, we don’t want to miss the dance known as life. In Latin America a popular saying is “La vida es una” or “You only live once.” Maybe man should start living that way since the West has taken his past reasons for living – a loving wife and family – away. He now has only his own pleasure to live for.

For life is a but a brief dance in the sun.

Manosphere Philosophy: Lost in the Vastness of Space and Time

earth-1149733_1280

Looking outward from our tiny world with a Red Pill philosophy

Looking beyond our world for clues as to what the true meaning of life, if any, there actually is, we awaken to find ourselves lost in the midst of a vast universe on “a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam.” The universe is much older and bigger than anyone ever imagined, and it seems at times hostile and at times indifferent to human cares and concerns.

Men know this instinctively, while women never realize it. They never have to, for they’re not faced with the same challenges to survive and procreate that men are. Men must learn how cold and careless the universe is for there wil be no safety net to save him, but there will be men lining up to be White Knights saving a damsel in distress.

Focusing on our tiny world for a moment, trying to make sense of a world in which everything is a myth or a lie, in which women claim to be victims when they’re actually users and abusers of male utility value, and in which those who claim to have the loftiest aspirations for mankind actually display the most repulsive human behavior (i.e. the elite and political classes) is not easy.

Many find religion to be a refuge. For others, religions are only palliatives to ease the pain of living in a world in which survival at any cost has been the prime directive for 4.5 billion years.

For others, only rationality will do. Here’s a look at the hard and inconvenient facts science has revealed about the universe we have found ourselves fighting to survive.

If the entire history of the universe happened over the course of one year, here’s how it would play out (click image to enlarge)

We’re New to the Scene

Humans haven’t been around very long at all. In fact, advanced life hasn’t been around long enough to be significant in the grand scheme of cosmic time. When one condenses the entire history of earth down into the equivalent of one year, the briefness of our existence is thus revealed. Carl Sagan pioneered this method with his concept of the Cosmic Calendar:

The Cosmic Calendar is a method to visualize the chronology of the universe, scaling its current age of 13.8 billion years to a single year in order to help intuition in for pedagogical purposes in science education or popular science.

In this visualization, the Big Bang took place at the beginning of January 1 at midnight, and the current moment maps onto the end of December 31 just before midnight. At this scale, there are 437.5 years per second, 1.575 million years per hour, and 37.8 million years per day.

We find ourselves making our brief appearance on the scene in the last minutes of the last day of the year of the 4.5 billion year Cosmic Calendar. Humans appear on the scene only in the last couple million years, or the last seconds of the last minute of the last hour of December 31.

A single human life equates to one blink of an eye when cosmic history is condensed down into a year for illustrative purposes.

We are just now making our brief appearance on the cosmic stage, on a planet in which well over 99% of all species who ever lived are extinct.

Social engineering schemes designed by elites are just one of many ways our species’ time on earth could be limited

Are We a Flash in the Pan

Some call it evolutionary baggage. There is reason to believe our existence in the world could be abbreviated, thanks to a number of factors. Perhaps the most troubling of these is social engineering, which has reached a troubling level of manipulation of human behavior in the early 21st century.

We now have a state that seeks to groom worker bees and sexless androgynes from birth, as Cultural Marxism moves to break up the human family permanently and subjugate men eternally. This will no doubt weaken the human species, perhaps beyond the point of repair.

None other than Nikola Tesla warned against this troubling possibility, which modern social engineers working at the behest of the elite are foisting upon the West with rabid fervor.

Our civilization will sink to a state like that which is found among the bees, ants and other insects – a state wherein the male is ruthlessly killed off. In this matriarchal empire which will be established the female rules. As the female predominates, the males are at her mercy. The male is considered important only as a factor in the general scheme of the continuity of life.

Men indeed have become nothing but sperm donors and laborers rather than stakeholders in society over the past century. Male incentives and male ingenuity are also being extinguished by this plague upon humanity. Tesla continues:

Woman’s independence and her cleverness in obtaining what she wants in the business world is breaking down man’s spirit of independence. The old fire he once experienced at being able to achieve something that would compel and hold a woman’s devotion is turning to ashes.

We often hear violence will end the saga of the human species from liberals, but the threat from authoritarianism – which abuses science for personal profit and gain rather than using it to advance the human condition is perhaps an even bigger and more insidious threat to our long-term survival.

“What is your advice to young writers?” Bukowski responds: “Drink, fuck and smoke plenty of cigarettes.”

Best to Enjoy What Time We Have

As we consider these grand ideas, realizing the odds are stacked against us as we strive for long-term survival, perhaps another way to glean philosophy from science is to realize the fact everything dies. Even the sun will die someday, as it becomes a Red Giant and fades into White Dwarf status.

The message I get from the cosmos is that it is best to enjoy what limited time we have on this planet, while trying to make a positive impact on the lives of others. I do this by attempting to tell the truth about things, rather than promulgating the myths that robbed me of half my life – that women are perfect angels, men are evil sexual predators, that the government is god and has all solutions to the ails of humanity.

The West takes life way too seriously, as it reaches out towards an infinity it likely will never reach. Spengler knew this when he wrote Decline of the West. Author Charles Bukowski sums up a worthy men’s philosophy when realizing the reality of our circumstances on the cosmic stage:

We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.

More inspiring words I cannot find. Bukowski perfectly summed up the philosophy of the manosphere a full generation before it came about. Let’s endeavor to live those awesome lives, even in the face of a world and a universe not made for us.
