10 Essential Philosophical Quotes for the Minimalist

philosophy-2603284_1280

“The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.” -Socrates

As a central theme of the TNMM philosophy, minimalism is a crucial concept for men who want to truly free themselves of the psychological, financial, locational, and vocational control of the matrix. However, adopting minimalism isn’t easy, especially in the wake of cultural currents constantly pushing people to upgrade, take on debt, and try to emulate the lives of emperors.

I began the journey years ago and I’m still finding ways to purge unnecessary things and people from my life, i.e. those possessions and people who only bring me down. (On a personal note, this is why I avoid Anglobitches like the plague. I know they’ll only trap me in their hamster wheel insanity and wanton consumeristic lifestyles.)

Becoming a true minimalist requires extensive deprogramming of the urges, habits, and desires programmed into our mind from a very young age. Perhaps even fewer men, fewer than those who swallow the Red Pill of truth will ever realize the genius that is philosophy of minimalism, properly adopted.

I am only beginning to realize its full potential as I am now traveling the world on a shoestring budget, and becoming happier and happier with fewer and fewer things. I have been living out of a carry-on suitcase and a laptop bag for well over two years. I live out of my suitcase as a humble truck driver in the States when I must suffer that imploding society to earn some money, and as a poolside, poon-pounding expat when I’m not working. And the only thing I regret is all the time I wasted chasing the illusions of the Great Marketing Machine when I worked as a wage slave inside the media ivory tower.

Often confused with being cheap, minimalism is actually quite the opposite of cheapness as it enriches our lives in the things that really matter. It frees us from wage slavery. It frees us from worshiping material things. It frees us from people who would destroy us or drag us down. Minimalism is about focusing on experiences, adventures, people, and relationships rather than consumption.

Josh Reuff, self-described bootstrapped digital nomad and fellow world-roaming nomad puts it all into perspective.

A financial minimalist doesn’t have the stress of debt and unpaid bills. A possessions minimalist doesn’t have to worry about the clutter of too much stuff. The psychological minimalist doesn’t carry around unhealthy emotions.

Realizing the power of all three concepts truly allows us to take control of our lives. When our finances are in order, our possessions don’t possess us, and the psychological damage done by suffering financial and emotional abuse from women is purged from our minds, we can then reach out towards our true potential.

Here are 10 quotes for the minimalist to not just read and appreciate, but adopt in his daily living.

  1. “The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.” -Socrates
  2.  “Contentment comes not so much from great wealth as from few wants.” -Epictetus
  3. “The consumption society has made us feel that happiness lies in having things, and has failed to teach us the happiness of not having things.” -Elise Boulding
  4.  “Cultivate poverty like a garden herb, like sage. Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends. Things do not change, we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts.” -Henry David Thoreau
  5. “It is preoccupation with possession, more than anything else, that prevents men from living freely and nobly.” -Bertrand Russell
  6.  “Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone.  The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.” -Lin Yutang
  7. “We really must understand that the lust for affluence in contemporary society is psychotic. It is psychotic because it has completely lost touch with reality. We crave things we neither need nor enjoy.” -Richard Foster
  8. “Simplicity involves unburdening your life, and living more lightly with fewer distractions that interfere with a high quality life, as defined uniquely by each individual.” -Linda Breen Pierce
  9. “There are two ways to be rich: One is by acquiring much, and the other is by desiring little.” -Jackie French Coller
  10.  “Any half-awake materialist well knows – that which you hold holds you.” -Tim Robbins

Several of these quotes are from ancient philosophers. Others are from modern times, particularly the first half of the 20th century when the orgy of consumerism first began to spread like a cancer through Anglo culture and permeate the world.

Perhaps more than anything, adopting minimalism is a way of objecting to the machine culture the West (and particularly Anglo America) has become. It is a way of escaping the impoverishing idea that literally turning people into Happiness Machines (a term first used in the Adam Curtis documentary The Century of the Self) who do nothing but sleep, work, and spend their entire lives – in increasingly isolated, antisocial fashion is not the best way for humanity to live.

The System is Rigged

Shell

Which shell will your success and retirement be under? Play silly games and win silly prizes

As someone who has been there, done that with both the great “system” we are all supposed to believe in and chasing The American Dream (you have to be asleep to believe) I’ve come to the conclusion there’s simply no way to win playing by the rules of the game, anymore.

That already compromised promise evaporated in the new, corporate controlled world we find ourselves in. The last vestiges of it disappeared circa 2008 as a shakedown of the American populace by the banking cartels occurred when our masters informed us “life as most Americans know it is about to change” to quote former talking head Charles Gibson of ABC News reading the propaganda of the day.

In days gone by, loyal, good men were modestly rewarded for their hard work and sacrifices. Not anymore. Now we are castigated, loathed, and blamed by women and society. I endured so many broken promises before turning on both. The promise of a “good job” that paid well that never came to be, even after I studied and “did the right thing” by sacrificing my youth at the altar of culturally coerced Betatude. The promise of a “good wife” who was loyal and wouldn’t sink her fangs into the lifeblood of my emotions and finances. (I used to lament the fact I never married, but now I see what a path of destruction my exes left in the lives of the men they did marry and have kids with – and I’m glad I dodged them).

In short, the rules are intended to produce:

  • Indentured servants saddled with non-bankruptable college debt
  • Supplicating soy boys eating GMO food and begging for attention and sexual favors from women
  • Debt slaves who spend their lives paying 25% interest on credit cards to buy things they don’t need with money they don’t have to impress people they don’t like
  • Broken men, both financially and spiritually after women frivorce rape them and take the kids; or female-dominated serfs of the consumerism machine
  • Men without agency over their own choices and their own lives due to constant rule and policymaking by the corporate-government complex – if one set of rules doesn’t get you, another will

As a recovering “good guy” who turned not only on women but on society at large after repeated kicks in the teeth by both, I now rage inside my mind when I think back on what bowing my head down, gritting my teeth, and licking the boot got me. I am angry for being lied to about women and the world. In many ways, my mentality echoes Walter White:

I have spent my whole life scared, frightened of things that could happen, might happen, might not happen, 50-years I spent like that. Finding myself awake at three in the morning. But you know what? Ever since my diagnosis, I sleep just fine.

Yeah, ever since my Red Pill awakening I sleep just fine. I’ve transformed from a meek man reading the daily propaganda in front of an HD camera to a ZFG Sigma whose new motto is “My way, or the highway.”

My anger from being used half a lifetime motivates me to get up everyday and find new ways of telling other men the truth about women and the world, so someone, somewhere might be spared the sense of loss and mourning I often feel about a life in which I was given the wrong instruction manual by the edumacation system and the corrupt media – both institutions I once had the utmost respect for that I now loathe.

Men, the system is rigged. I’ve said it before that the only way to win is not to play. Play by the rules, follow instructions, hope for the best and watch as your life evaporates into the ether and all you end up with are memories of punching in on time at the same hell each day and a litany of broken promises. That, and a life of loneliness as the state has cucked you with women by exploiting male weaknesses defined by Briffault’s Law. This is a dog eat dog world. And this dog isn’t going to let himself be kicked around anymore.

If there’s one thing being off the corporate plantation for two years has shown me, it’s that there’s no going back to the life of a slave, anymore.

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.

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?
