Boys Committing Suicide at Nearly Double the Rate of Girls

couple_fight

Males are reviled in Anglo culture and adolescent boys are committing suicide at nearly twice the rate of girls

As yet another barometer of the decline and disintegration of Western culture, suicides of kids aged 10 to 14 are now at an all-time high.

The lamestream media is all over this story, but as usual one has to do some digging to come up with the fact far more BOYS are committing suicide than girls. Almost twice as many young boys kill themselves than young girls in this age group.

Don’t expect to hear anti-suicide campaigns aimed at saving young boys in an anti-male Anglo culture. As just one example of how deep the “protect the pussy and exploit the dick” mentality runs in this culture, there are lots of pink ribbons for tits but no ribbons for prostate cancer. That’s just how it works in the matriarchy.

Dr. Marsha Levy-Warren, a clinical psychologist who works with young men and women in this age group told the Old York Times something that sheds some light on the problems of a Puritan work ethic and sexual repression juxtaposed alongside a totally degenerate and sexualized media making everyone miserable – and apparently it’s not just adults who are alienated:

Cultural norms have changed tremendously from 20 years ago.

That’s definitely an understatement. And worse, the cultural norms are getting worse. Much worse. We all know this.

Then we see stories like this that pain the human cost of this tragedy. A recent suicide reported on by the Daily Mail highlights the reality behind the numbers as a high school boy recently added yet another name to the body count.

A 16-year-old boy died early Tuesday morning after police said he jumped in front of an oncoming A train at the 42nd Street subway station under the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York. The teen had a ‘history of depression’ and cop sources said he had been hospitalized in September for suicidal thoughts, according to the New York Daily News.

There’s no word if the boy was on dangerous SSRI antidepressant drugs that The New Modern Man has reported on in the past. But drugs are only one part of a series of problems leading to these grim statistics.

A teen with a history of depression leaped in front of a subway car in New York in recent weeks – no word if he was on dangerous SSRIs

Culture of Death

Anglo America continues to bask in a sewer of what could be collectively called a culture of death. Whether it be drugs designed to keep people functioning profitability in a miserable system, a culture that figuratively if not literally tries to de-ball boys and men, sexual repression designed to communicate the message the only way to get your urges alleviated is by buying the right combination of products, or an education system biased towards females, the Matrix is designed to keep people producing money no matter the human cost of doing so.

So, abortion worship isn’t the only way this culture has become a culture of death.

While part of the statistical uptick in adolescent suicide is no doubt related to the decreasing number of annual deaths in car crashes, the number of suicides in this age group has doubled in the past decade – to around 400.

Between 2007 and 2014, the number of middle schoolers dying by suicide grew from an annual rate of 0.9 to 2.1 per 100,000.

Here are four reasons the number of boys who are committing suicide is rising sharply.

1. Drugs. Ritalin. SSRI antidepressants. The modern day equivalent of Somas in our Brave New World. An astounding 1 out of 5 high school age boys have now been diagnosed with ADHD and many of them prescribed Ritalin in a move that is directed at keeping them from acting like boys. Only 7% of girls have been diagnosed with ADHD. These drugs mess with the developing psychology of boys, and turn many of them into basket cases in an already difficult period in life.

2. Anti-male culture. Just the fact the male suicide rate in the age 10-14 age group is nearly double that of the female suicide rate was buried by the media speaks volumes about the anti-male biases of Anglo culture. From the time boys enter school, maleness and testosterone are brainwashed and drugged out of them. It is not a pleasant time to be alive if your are a male, whether you’re a child or adult.

3. Repressed sexuality. Puritanism is still alive and well in modern day Anglo culture. Anglobitch sums this aspect of modern life for pubescent boys and men extremely well:

Straight men are the monstrum horrendum of the Anglo mass media. One cannot read a newspaper or watch a news bulletin within seeing men being vilified as rapists, pedophiles, cannibals and mass murderers. No word at all about the millions of responsible fathers, husbands and employees out there – the Puritanical Anglo media hates sexualized beings, and so it hates men, period.

Strangely, Puritanism has morphed from a religious practice to an atheistic practice of New World Order socialism in the 21st century. But make no mistake – it has its roots in Puritan Anglo culture.

4. Education system. Kids now spend less time outdoors than prisoners do. The education system is designed to turn young people into efficient, professional consumers and debt slaves, nothing more. It is also designed to begin a process of de-sexualizing both sexes that continues once the newly minted consumers begin consuming corporate media and being subjected to corporate HR policies which are also designed at de-sexualizing human beings.

Once these four problems are recognized and solutions formulated to bring an end to this quadruplet of insanity, the suicide rate will go back down. Don’t expect this to happen as the media is already concealing the fact boys are suffering the most under this social scheme.

Until then, it’s full speed ahead with the New World Order, and as always male sacrifice and the social costs boys and men pay take a backseat to whatever is best for those born with a vagina and what is best for those profiting from the current system.

Garbage In, Garbage Out: Bringing Forth a Renaissance in Masculinity

devolution

The decline of masculinity is a fundamental problem associated with the Decline of the West

As a man ages he also becomes wiser. He looks back on the course of his life and where it has brought him, and of course recognizes the many mistakes he made along the way. When looking back over the course of his life, it’s hard for the newly minted Red Pill man not to lament and at the same time be disgusted by his Blue Pill days. But what made him Blue Pill?

More than anything else, the education system and the media are clearly to blame for the Blue Pill, suicidal tendencies of the West today. The education system instills weakness and submissiveness in men and the media instill fear, consumption, and collectivism. Well, that and a healthy dose of white guilt and pedestalization of the female.

These combined forces have turned modern men into weaklings that are easy prey for oppressive governments, as their countries are invaded by outside forces. For the crime of being male, they’re marginalized as “defectives” who don’t deserve to have a say in the effete, matriarchal society of today, the same society that no longer needs them except for their labor and tax money.

Effectively, the education system and media are brainwashing tools of the elite. However, as the education system molders (the value of the rubber stamp decreasing each time it stamps one) and the media are discredited by the Wisdom of Crowds via the Internet in the 21st century, men are going their own way and finally beginning to emerge out from under these combined dark forces.

education

Get ’em while they’re young: Young minds are easier to mold to state doctrine than older minds

Garbage In

From age 5 boys are put into classrooms with females and told to behave just like the nice little girls and not to be the mean little boys they want to be. At the same time, boys are told they have “privilege” because they have penises (further adding credence to the deployment of Freud’s Penis Envy theory in the public education system). Moreover, boys’ innate tendencies are suppressed rather than catered to. The Atlantic reports:

In the view that has prevailed in American education over the past decade, boys are resented, both as the unfairly privileged sex and as obstacles on the path to gender justice for girls. This perspective is promoted in schools of education, and many a teacher now feels that girls need and deserve special indemnifying consideration.

Indeed, boys (like men) in the West are seen as defective, and even evil, and school is geared towards making them more like girls (and women). Boys’ need to roughhouse, play, and explore are curbed by a system that makes children literally spend less time outdoors than prisoners, the same system that delivers heavy-handed punishments for even minor scrapes between adolescents.

In my father’s day, boys who had a problem with each other were sent to the gym, given boxing gloves and allowed to duke it out. Today, in a matriarchal society any problem boys have with each other is sublimated with David Van Driessen style techniques (the weakling, fairy of a teacher in Beavis and Butthead), forced under the surface until it boils over and what could have been a simple boxing match, and a hand shake at the end of it turns into violence.

Even though boys natural instincts have gotten to the point they’re now oppressed and even drugged out of them (Ritalin, etc.), and girls do better on standardized testing and go to college in larger numbers in a system that caters to them, as always in Anglo society, females are the victims and males are the evil oppressors.

The description of America’s teenage girls as silenced, tortured, and otherwise personally diminished was (and is) indeed dismaying. But no real evidence has ever been offered to support it. Certainly neither Gilligan nor the popular writers who followed her lead produced anything like solid empirical evidence, gathered according to the conventional protocols of social-science research.

So where did this twisted and totally baseless vision of America’s young men originate?How did political correctness – clearly geared towards making society more feminine -displace masculine critical thinking and rational analysis? The American Thinker traces its origins all the way back to The Frankfurt School over 75 years ago.

The Frankfurt School’s specialty was political correctness. The goal was to control social discourse on culture, politics, and economics and hush debate over middle-class moral decay. A critical tactic dictated by political correctness – demonizing people who question progressive wisdom – is illustrated by today’s Democrats and media calling tea-partiers racists and extremists for wanting to shrink government. The same kind of one-sided thought control renders schoolchildren captive to left-wing agendas.

Boys’ speech and even thinking are controlled by making them self-censor before they even open their mouths. This is the insidiousness of the public education system.

Parents have long known that something was wrong but have accepted the deterioration of children’s morality and common sense for the sake of the “tolerance” that progressive educators demand. The self-censorship inherent in political correctness has silenced parents for fear of being branded “intolerant,” “mean,” “overly judgmental,” or, heaven forbid, “conservative.”

Media brainwashing also begins at a very young age, which is why parents need to be vigilant about what and especially how much TV children watch. Based on my experience in the media, I would recommend ZERO television. It is the most effective brainwashing tool of all time. Even at the tender age of 6 months, babies can have brand logos and jingles implanted into their brains, and by age 2 they can be on their way to becoming a loyal Coca-Cola drinker for life via the much sought-after Holy Grail of branding.

Marketers plant the seeds of brand recognition in very young children, in the hopes that the seeds will grow into lifetime relationships. According to the Center for a New American Dream, babies as young as six months of age can form mental images of corporate logos and mascots. Brand loyalties can be established as early as age two, and by the time children head off to school most can recognize hundreds of brand logos.

Beyond branding, the media’s Marxist view of the world is also implanted into children’s minds via endless biased news reporting and shows from Hollywood and Disney which have hidden messages in them. Disney is particularly insidious with hidden sexual imagery in many of its shows. Worse, children watch wholesome childhood stars like Miley Cyrus “grow up” to become totally degenerate trash. This is not happening by accident, as social engineers know the power of role models.

Forty years ago, the character Howard Beale gave the world a premonition of what was to come in his epic monologue in the Academy Award winning film Network:

Listen to me!

Television is not the truth. Television is a goddamn amusement park. Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion tamers and football players. We’re in the boredom-killing business.

So if you want the truth, go to God. Go to your gurus. Go to yourselves, because that’s the only place you’re going to find any real truth. But, man, you’re never gonna get any truth from us. We’ll tell you anything you wanna hear. We lie like hell. We’ll tell you that Kojak always gets the killer and that nobody ever gets cancer at Archie Bunker’s house. And no matter how much trouble the hero is in, don’t worry. Just look at your watch. At the end of the hour, he’s gonna win. We’ll tell you any shit you want to hear. We deal in illusions, man. None of it is true!

But you people sit there day after day, night after night, all ages, colors, creeds. We’re all you know. You’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here. You’re beginning to think that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you. You dress like the tube. You eat like the tube. You raise your children like the tube. You even think like the tube. This is mass madness you maniacs! In God’s name you people are the real thing, WE are the illusion!

Failing to recognize the education system and media were putting garbage into young mens’ minds led to the garbage out results we have today.

salad

Propaganda about eliminating fat from the diet leads to numerous male health problems; men need more than leafy greens, we also need lots of meat

Garbage Out

The result of this and other numerous factors designed to weaken men and turn them into figurative geldings who ask permission instead of men who have agency include a dearth of masculinity. A weak population of manginas, misfits, metrosexuals, effiminate Beta boy office proles, and the like.

The education system and the media have taught men to eat garbage, including a feminizing diet (largely aimed on replacing fat in the diet based on shoddy science). Bold and Determined knows the cost of cutting fat out of the diet, beyond the obesity epidemic it has caused.

Give up the fatty foods that men need (absolutely need, not want) and replace it with bullshit like vegetables and cereals and grains and breads and, worst of all margarine and soy, and you get a nation of effete zombies. A diet like that is fit for women and women only.

jake

Making sex taboo is a goal of the NWO: It never occurs to most people Jake also could not consent using the logic of these posters

Beyond feminine diets, Anglo society has been attempting to desexualize people for the better part of a century. This has culminated in  ad campaigns like the “Jake and Josie Hooked Up” rape posters, in which Josie cannot consent when she’s drunk but Jake can (proving men are 1/8 human in the eyes of Anglo society) marginalize heterosexuality.

The truth is, the human species would probably be extinct without alcohol easing inhibitions between the sexes. What do men do? Instead of raising hell and demanding the pushers of this ad campaign be hung by their toenails (which is incidentally just one aspect of a coordinated effort at making straight sex itself taboo in America), men now “fap” to internet pornography rather than getting the real thing. Birth rates decline, satisfaction with life declines, and studies now show some men who masturbate frequently can’t get an erection when they have a real woman in front of them because the brain literally rewires itself to the new stimulus of Internet porn.

So, men now eat like women, and sex is becoming taboo. Worse, men are also becoming weaklings physically. David French at the National Review laments how weak, literally, American men have become due to lack of physical activity.

If you’re the average Millennial male, your dad is stronger than you are. In fact, you may not be stronger than the average Millennial female. The very idea of manual labor is alien to you, and even if you were asked to help, say, build a back porch, the task would exhaust you to the point of uselessness. Welcome to the new, post-masculine reality.

Men now shun blue-collar labor in favor of office jobs in which they become subjected to all sorts of social engineering schemes, designed to make them less than a man. So, now that we’ve touched on some aspects of garbage in, garbage out, where does this leave us?

refugees

Refugees are the new saints in the West

End Result: Decline

Men are becoming cucks and schmucks who are literally letting their nations be ransacked by invading hordes of immigrants who will NEVER assimilate to the culture of the West. Rape epidemics are occurring and being hidden across Europe. Crime waves are being conducted by government-protected classes. Whites are being told how evil they are, and accepting slavery propaganda without questioning it when in truth 96% of the slave trade went to Latin America and 1% of whites ever owned slaves in America. (The same 1% that now aims to enslave and control the entire world.) But, Latinos are never forced to have guilt about the sins of their ancestors.

America is literally being transformed into a despotism right before their very eyes and men stand around doing nothing to stop it, tranquilized by food and football-induced comas. Even the liberal rag Salon touched on the death of masculinity.

Men these days are a mere shadow of what we once were. We’ve become physically weaker than our ancestors. We’re slower runners. We can’t jump as high as we once did. As Peter McAllister, an archaeologist with the University of Western Australia and the author of the new book “Manthropology: The Science of Why the Modern Male Is Not the Man He Used to Be,” puts it, we might be the “sorriest cohort of masculine Homo sapiens to ever walk the planet.” I, for one, blame guyliner.

Sorriest cohort, indeed. But men aren’t to blame as much as the system that grooms them to be pushovers from the tender age of 5 when they’re forcefully removed from the home and put into government education camps. It then churns out effeminate corporate drones who meander through life, some of whom wake up at the age of 30 and 40, realizing what’s been done to them. Others never wake up at all. Very few take moves to end a system like this.

Bottom line: This shit has to stop. And it has to stop immediately. The West losing its men is one of the most suicidal of its array of suicidal tendencies. (Incidentally, turning men and women into the equivalent of sexless machinery with no humanity is a product of the West reaching out towards its Prime Symbol of infinity as decline sets in.)

The beginning of the end of this agenda of garbage in, garbage out begins with fundamental changes in the way society treats masculinity. Boys need educational programs geared towards them. We need to make our boys into strong men if we want the West to survive. The days of the feminized education system need to end, and they need to end immediately. Media either needs to be completely eliminated in our homes or totally reinvented.

Building strong men begins with recognizing the institutional problems in the West, those put there by social engineers who want control above all else. The next step is changing how those systems work, with the end goal of bringing forth a Renaissance in masculinity.

The Shocking Truth About Black Slavery in the Americas

Brazil_Slaves

The vast majority of African slaves were imported to Latin America by Latino slave owners, specifically the Caribbean and Brazil

The history of slavery tells us it was the entire world’s economic system for thousands of years. It did not begin and end with Anglo America. Every major ethnic group has had its hand in the sordid past of this institution. At one time or another, every ethnic group in the world has enslaved another ethnic group. It’s time the rest of the story was told, and that begins with revealing the long history of slavery in Latin America.

Since leaving Anglo America because feminism poisoned the well for traditional men, living in Latin America has shown me this area of the world needs to share the burden of the guilt of slavery. Not to mention, Africa also needs to share in the burden of slavery, where slavery and went on in most kingdoms and societies on the continent for thousands of years, and is still ongoing to this day in some African countries. There is a lot of blame to go around for this problem. It should never be used to shame and manipulate only one group of people to suit a political agenda as it is in the United States.

In Latin America, one need look no farther than the popular Salsa music genre to find the history of the brutal nature of Latin slave owners written in music. The lyrics, translated from Spanish, are eye-opening:

In the 1600s, when the tyrant ruled
In the streets of Cartagena, this history played out
There came the slave traders, with Africans in chains
They kissed the land, then perpetual slavery
An African couple, slaves of a Spanish man
He treated them very badly
And hit the Black woman
It was then, that the heroic black man rebelled
He avenged his love
And you can still hear him yelling at the gates:
Don’t hit my black woman!

The lyrics to this popular song tell a tale of a slave rebellion that happened in Cartagena, Colombia, a rebellion the puppet masters in the American media and education system would prefer never be told, as they tout the Superior Virtue of immigrants from Latin America over those WASPs they hate so much in America.

An abusive Colombian slave owner beating an African female slave doesn’t fit the narrative of large numbers of immigrants from Latin American trying to overcome oppressive “whitey.” Statistics help reveal more of the story behind the music.

Numbers

It may surprise you to learn the United States was a relatively minor player in the slave trade. A full 99% of the white population never owned slaves. One could say blaming all whites for the sins of slave ownership is the modern day equivalent of blaming the entire population for the modern day sins of the elite 1% in the country. While most of use do not agree with what the elite are doing to Americans in business and in politics, those who have a disproportionate share of money, political influence, and largely control the means of production and communication make the decisions, not the rest of us.

Statistically, Mexico and Peru combined imported more slaves than the United States. Over the course of more than 350 years, of the 11.2 million slaves imported from Africa in the slave trade, only 4% of them, or 450,000 arrived in the United States. The other 96% mostly went to Latin America (including Portuguese and French colonies in the Americas), according to the highly-rated documentary Black in Latin America by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. A full one-third of slaves landed in Brazil and 60 to 70% landed in either Brazil or the Caribbean. This is easy to see when one visits the Caribbean, as on most islands the population skews heavily towards African ancestry. You would never know this from reading liberal history books.

The stereotype of the savage Southern hick acting alone as a sadistic abuser while slave owners in other countries supposedly were more humane to their slaves is also destroyed simply by reading history, rather listening to narratives designed to scapegoat one group of people. Going against the narrative that only Anglos are mean and vicious, U.S. slave owners were demonstrably more humane than their Latino counterparts, as much fewer slaves died in the U.S. than in Latin America and the Caribbean. From the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History:

Slavery in the United States was especially distinctive in the ability of the slave population to increase its numbers by natural reproduction. In the Caribbean, Dutch Guiana, and Brazil, the slave death rate was so high and the birthrate so low that slaves could not sustain their population without imports from Africa. The average number of children born to an early nineteenth-century southern slave woman was 9.2—twice as many as in the West Indies (Caribbean).

Death rates among slaves in the Caribbean were one-third higher than in the South, and suicide appears to have been much more common. Unlike slaves in the South, West Indian slaves were expected to produce their own food in their “free time,” and care for the elderly and the infirm.

Access to freedom was greater in Latin America, but in many cases masters freed sick, elderly, crippled, or simply unneeded slaves in order to relieve themselves of financial responsibilities.

In addition to Latin America freeing more slaves but not freeing them unless they were used up and worthless, importantly, the Spanish and Portuguese colonies mixed with their slaves, making the black population not as visible as it is today in the U.S. These ethnically blended populations have helped in making the history of the practice less visible than in Anglo America, where populations did not mix. Continuing from the Gilder-Lehrman Institute:

Another important difference between Latin America and the United States involved conceptions of race. In Spanish and Portuguese America, an intricate system of racial classification emerged. Compared with the British and French, the Spanish and Portuguese were much more tolerant of racial mixing—an attitude encouraged by a shortage of European women—and recognized a wide range of racial gradations, including black, mestizo, quadroon, and octoroon. The American South, in contrast, adopted a two-category system of race in which any person with a black mother was automatically considered to be black.

The practice of racial mixing was so common in the Dominican Republic that genetic studies have revealed a majority of the population to have DNA from white European fathers and black African mothers. Colombia also reveals a high proportion of admixture between European fathers and African mothers. In other Latin nations African slaves were “absorbed” into the larger population through reproduction.

According to Black in Latin America, the integration of African peoples was so pervasive that every Mexican has an “African grandma hiding in their closet.”

So, there were far higher numbers of slaves in modern day Latin America than anybody would believe unless they studied the numbers, yet the issue isn’t as visible because of a long history of racial mixing in this part of the world.

 

Teacher

Limited learning for lifelong labor is only one of the ways the American education system is more about propaganda and social control rather than instilling critical thinking skills in youth

Political Motivations

So, why are these inconvenient truths about slavery never brought up or given the light of day? Because they would destroy the grievance racket, and the elite’s thumbscrew to keep people feeling guilty and under control would be taken away.

If one listens to leftists, Anglos invented slavery, all of them were complicit in it, the United States was the only evil country that ever used this system, and turnabout is fair play so now it’s time for whites to be disenfranchised and oppressed. And moral giants that we politicians and elites are, we would never allow slavery to go on—even though slavery and indentured servitude are still practiced in the American family court system with female privilege. (And, it can be argued predatory student loans that aren’t dismissable even in bankruptcy are a form of debt bondage.)

For well over 100 years, there have been racial demagogues constantly exploiting the problem for political and financial gain. Booker T. Washington, a leading voice of former slaves and their descendants wrote:

There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.

I am afraid that there is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.

My experience is that people who call themselves “The Intellectuals” understand theories, but they do not understand things. I have long been convinced that, if these men could have gone into the South and taken up and become interested in some practical work which would have brought them in touch with people and things, the whole world would have looked very different to them. Bad as conditions might have seemed at first, when they saw that actual progress was being made, they would have taken a more hopeful view of the situation.

In other words, exploiting the problem and framing it as Hollyweird and the corrupt media have is profitable and makes for a powerful political weapon to use against the masses, especially when one desires keeping a nation racially divided. All while the elite expects everyone to remain willfully ignorant of the fact slavery has been a worldwide institution for thousands of years – and is still ongoing in parts of Africa, namely Chad, Congo, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, and Sudan.

The history of slavery in Latin America—which has a far more expansive history than slavery in the U.S.—can no longer be ignored. There’s a lot of blame to go around, and it’s time to stop scapegoating one group of people for crimes that all of humanity participated in, and some countries are still participating in to this day!

How to Get Out of Student Loan Debt a.k.a. Indentured Servitude

Loans

An education has become a burden, not an asset to many men in the 21st century

Americans owe over $1 trillion in student loans, an average of $30,000 for every graduate. These loans, unlike any other form of debt, will not be dismissed—even in bankruptcy. Decades ago someone could work summers and put themselves through school. That’s not feasible in modern times because the price of a higher education has risen 500% since 1985, as colleges have been turned into fiefdoms for avaricious administrators.

Ironically, an education system that used to be the gateway to the middle class looks outdated and like a ticket to bondage in the Information Age. It has been manipulated by bankers and politicians in such a way its now designed to turn young men and women into pliable debt slaves, selling them an education that is increasingly worthless as the market becomes saturated with rubber stamps from a magic piece of paper system. Popular media personality Mike Rowe has frequently discussed the insanity of such a system as he pushes the unpopular idea that maybe college education shouldn’t be for everyone.

If we are lending money that ostensibly we don’t have to kids who have no hope of making it back in order to train them for jobs that clearly don’t exist, I might suggest that we’ve gone around the bend a little bit.

Gone around the bend, we have. Nearly half of college graduates are underemployed. According to Rowe, there are 3.9 million blue collar jobs available right now that nobody wants. Jobs in transportation, commerce, and trades. Many of them pay well. The problem is, for generations students have been steered towards a one-size-fits-all idea of what a worthwhile career is while taking on enormous amounts of debt. The brainwashing about the miracles of a college education begins at age five and continues through elementary and high school, when adults pushing these fantasies on kids should know supply and demand economics well enough to figure out not everyone is going to end up with a great job—even if they follow the life plan being pushed on them.

The last couple of years in high school the big topic is college, college, college, pushed by amoral guidance counselors who tell students the only respectable way to make a living is to get a degree and then become a corporate drone for 40 to 50 years. Then, these former students turn 30 years old, deeply in debt and disillusioned before they realize they’ve been had by an education system that only is interested in its own self-aggrandizement.

Market Watch laid out some interesting trends about today’s education system fantasies. According to “journalists” the average college graduate makes about $78,000 a year. Pardon me while I clean up the tea I just spewed while laughing at that statistic….it goes without saying a LOT of students will never earn that much in today’s decaying job market. Here are some numbers that reflect reality a little better:

  • 19% of underemployed college graduates are making about $23,500 a year on average flinging coffee-themed milk shakes at Fivebucks, and in other low-skilled jobs like bartenders and cashiers
  • 26% are making about $37,000 a year working in office and administrative positions, in other words, living life in Office Space hell

And, of course the numbers skew worse for younger college graduates, according to a report entitled Are College Graduates Finding Good Jobs?

In all years, the underemployment rates is higher for recent college graduates than for college graduates as a whole, indicating that underemployment is consistently more widespread for this group.

So, what does the average man who drunk the “go to college” Kool-Aid do when he finds himself either underemployed or unemployed because the Evil White Male™ need not apply, or will be last in line for promotion? Or his company sold its soul at the altar of globalization? He fucks over and sells out a system that has repeatedly fucked him over and sold him out. In other words, he legally manipulates the circumstances to his advantage. He goes Galt. What does Going Galt mean? According to The Atlas Society:

  • “Going Galt” means asking in the face of new taxes and government controls, “Why work at all?” “For whom am I working?” “Am I a slave?”
  • “Going Galt” means recognizing that you’re being punished not for your vices but for your virtues.
  • “Going Galt” means recognizing that you have a moral right to your own life, the pursuit of your own happiness, and thus to the rewards you’ve earned with your labor.
  • “Going Galt” means recognizing that you deserve praise and honor for your achievements rather than damnation as “exploiters.”
  • “Going Galt” means recognizing that you do not need to justify your life or wealth to your neighbors, “society,” or politicians, or bureaucrats. They’re yours, period!
  • “Going Galt” means recognizing that the needs of others do not give them a claim to your time, effort, and achievements.
  • “Going Galt” means shrugging off unearned guilt, refusing to support your own destroyers, refusing to give them what Ayn Rand termed “the sanction of the victim.” It means taking the moral high ground by explicitly rejecting as evil the premise of “self-sacrifice” that they sell to you as a virtue— in fact “self-sacrifice” is an invitation to suicide.

More than a great novel, Atlas Shrugged provides the blueprint for the Red Pill man to escape exploitation.

Escape the ball and chain by Going Galt

Action Plan

For many of us, the reward promised to us since childhood for time served and good beta male behavior vanished as soon as we went to collect it. It wasn’t through accident that it vanished. The disappearance was by design of cultural Marxists and the corporate-government complex. A decent wife, white picket fence, decent work for decent pay, a new car every decade or so, and a few bucks in the bank for retirement has become a pipe dream as American workers are shamelessly sold out in the 21st century with everything from NAFTA and CAFTA to TPP to other “free trade” agreements, which are really precursors to global government. Not to mention feminism teaching women to hate men.

When “Neo” figuratively wakes up and realizes the reality of the incubator he’s been placed into, who can blame him for just wanting out of a system that sold him out and deceived him? Especially if he just wants his freedom back!

So, I came up with a plan. It’s not without sacrifice. Here are some pros and cons of the plan:

  • Pro: Moves men to a life of minimalism instead of one of consumerism, after all it doesn’t take much for a man to live on.
  • Pro: Stops men from turning themselves into meal tickets for women.
  • Pro: Takes tax dollars and productivity out of a system that exploits and hates men.
  • Pro: Punishes banksters and government officials who caused the price of education to soar beyond reach by inflating an education bubble with taxpayer money.
  • Con: Some will be so enamored of the vision of a life of consumerism they will attack those who promote the plan. As Morpheus warns Neo: You have to understand. Most people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured and so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will fight to protect it.
  • Con: Forces serious lifestyle changes.
  • Con: Cuts down on investment potential. (Can be mitigated through lower cost of living).

A little background on why I developed this plan: I made a solid effort to repay my student loans, making installments on a meager income for years only to see the balance really didn’t go down that much. I didn’t make much money, so even after college I was largely just paying interest on student loans for 10 years. Personally, in my chosen profession of television news I knew I wouldn’t be making much money the first 10 years, but I was assured that after a decade in the business I would have “paid my dues” and earn a decent salary.

But, there is no “paying of dues” anymore as media corporations have sold everyone out. Young, vacuous, just out of college girls now fill positions that required a minimum of 10 years of experience back in the day. HR harridans relentlessly punish disobedience to the female superiority agenda and heresy against Evil White Male™ doxy. TV news is a field has become miserable to work in, spouting Marxism (which I hate) 24/7, and is a revolving door with no sense of security and a higher than average suicide rate.

Suffice it to say I was on the chopping block because I was making “too much money” and they could get a just out of college girl for literally half price. Not to mention I had blonde hair, blue eyes, and a penis, the wrong traits to have in the 21st century. I refused to contribute anymore to broadcasts on which I was regularly being demonized as a white man. I was sold a false bill of goods without the possibility of a refund.

All the reasons I went to college in the first place rather than going straight into employment were stripped away—intentionally—by a collusion of corporate and government interests to sell out the American worker. I needed a way out. So, after paying off all my consumer debt and selling everything I owned, I devised this Going Galt plan to escape student loan debt—playing by the very rules the system made up.

  • Step One: Quit your job and go for a lower paying job, preferably abroad where the cost of living is lower, the women aren’t fatties, and there is still a modicum of freedom. Importantly, the total cost of living for a single man abroad is less than the average child support payment! Failing that, minimalism is an option if you want to stay stateside. As featured in numerous articles about minimalism on my blog, there are even tiny house living options for the fraction of the cost of a new house.
  • Step Two: Call your loan servicer and get a temporary unemployment or economic hardship deferment. (Careful, only three years of these over the life of the loan are allowed.) Other alternatives include getting on a tiered repayment plan with lower payments until you complete a full year of a new, lower income lifestyle for your W-2 forms.
  • Step Three: File taxes with your new, lower income the following year. For Federal student loans, you can earn 1.5x the poverty rate and not be forced to pay a dime—and without ruining your credit as long as you get on an income-based repayment. That’s currently $17,820 annually or $1,485 monthly you can earn (on the books—heh) without paying a dime back. Submit income tax information to your loan servicer to be placed on an IBR. Re-certify your low income status each year.
  • Step Four: If you wish to earn more than $17,820 your repayments will be capped at 10% to 15% of your income above that amount. The goal is to find the right balance between minimalism, investing, and finding a job you can live with.
  • Step Five: For recent grads, the loans are forgiven in 20 years; for older grads they’re forgiven in 25 years. Obama has capped the amount that can be forgiven at just over $59,000.

As alluded to earlier, it is recommended one pay off ALL consumer debt before attempting this plan. This will make the transition to a lower income, simpler life possible. The beauty of this plan is it doesn’t take much for a man to live on once he’s deprogrammed himself of the consumer fantasies put into his mind his entire life. Personally, if a government can’t offer me anything but villainization for being a white man, a society can’t offer a decent woman who is not a whore or a man-hating feminist, it breaks promises of gainful employment and job security through shoddy government and banking policies, it manipulates the supply of college degrees and cost of an education in a way that turns men into debt slaves, and further enslaves men with child support and alimony, why in the hell am I going to kill myself supporting that system?

Inspiration to push back against exploitation of male labor and productivity, student loan ball and chains, misandry, discrimination against white men, and other assorted misadventures comes from the classic Ayn Rand novel. In Atlas Shrugged, Francisco d’Anconia, who blew up all the copper mines in the world, said this about John Galt:

He had quit the Twentieth Century. He was living in a garret in a slum neighborhood. He stepped to the window and pointed at the skyscrapers of the city. He said that we had to extinguish the lights of the world, and when we would see the lights of New York go out, we would know that our job was done.

John Galt himself said it best:

There is only one kind of men who have never been on strike in human history … the men who have carried the world on their shoulders, have kept it alive, have endured torture as sole payment … Well, their turn has come. Let the world discover who they are, what they do and what happens when they refuse to function. This is the strike of the men of the mind.

College graduates who get shafted as the system they invested their entire lives in changes the rules, these men of the mind, must stop supporting a system that sees them as nothing more than tax-paying pack mules for women and society. How do we do that? By going on strike and removing ourselves from a system that exploits us. Unless men take real world action, internet frustration is accomplishing nothing but hyperbole. If watching the world go by for over three decades has taught me anything, culminating in Hillary getting her charges dismissed, it’s that rules and laws are for fucking losers. It’s those who break the rules that win.

Or, in this case, those who manipulate a bureaucracy’s own rules and regulations against it to escape a predatory education loan system and its debt slavery.

Duke Student Turns Porn Star to Avoid Student Loans

Duke

Women will do anything to avoid becoming wives and mothers in Anglo-America, including doing porno to pay for a rubber stamp because “empowerment”

If ever there was an illustration of how screwed up the higher education scam has become in America, a story surfaced a couple of years ago about a Duke University student making pornographic films to pay for college rather than assuming the huge burden of debt servitude the average graduate now pays for their rubber stamp. Miriam Weeks, who used the stage name Belle Knox, was able to keep her work in pornography secret for some time until she was “outed” by a frat boy. She promptly faced a backlash from people who obviously didn’t care if she had the money to pay for college or not.

Weeks made fat stacks while doing her work in the porn industry. This story, however, reveals an unflattering area of the higher education scam politicians or talking heads don’t like to delve into: how outrageous and unaffordable the price of education has become for working, middle class families. Weeks’ parents both work for a living, so the government didn’t offer her a financial aid package that would pay for her Duke education without taking on crushing debt to pay for the $60,000 a year cost of attendance. As with many areas of life in America, make zero effort and get the world laid at your feet. Make an effort toiling in jobs that don’t really pay enough for members of the dying middle class to advance in life, and get every cock block known to man thrown in your path.

Since the debacle and the finger pointing, Weeks has since become a libertarian, and makes a reasonable argument about people having the right to self-ownership rather than being corporate and government-owned happiness machines producing revenue on the American tax farm. Knox says:

I think that my work and being in the porn industry definitely hits on so many libertarian themes like free speech, and censorship, and choice and autonomy over our bodies. To make matters worse, my income now makes me ineligible for the $13,000 in aid I was receiving. My bill for next year will be a staggering $62,000. And I will pay this all on my own; the financial aid office does not care that I am legally financially independent. They view it as my parents’ responsibility to foot the bill.

As often happens in America, uncharitable critics don’t offer much in the way of solutions, but they do offer a lot in the way of judgement and self-righteousness.

Show Me the Money

Weeks deflected criticism about her decision to do porn, placing the blame where it belongs, on the self-aggrandizing higher education fiefdom.

Instead of focusing on my decision to perform in porn to pay my tuition, let’s start paying attention to what got me here: artificially inflated demand for college that pushes tuitions sky high. Even after student aid, I faced a $47,000 bill to attend Duke University. My turn to porn to close the gap was so famous, in part, due to my reasoning. Faced with either a degree from a less prestigious school or decades of crushing debt, a few hours of work on a porn set revealed itself to be the best way to avoid getting screwed.

Weeks had been getting paid $400 a week as a cocktail waitress working on someone else’s demanding schedule. Obviously, that’s not enough to pay for a Duke education. While doing porn, she made $1,300 per scene and could set her own schedule while doing countless shoots on breaks from school and during summers. Weeks needed to make that much money because higher education in America is in the midst of an enormous bubble that has caused the cost of college attendance soar 1,000% in the last 30 years. This education bubble is being inflated by an American government trying to manipulate supply and demand of college degrees in favor of corporations who want to stagnate wages and put a debt chain on future employees so as to ensure good conduct from their newly minted peons. Author Sheldon Richman writes:

What drives the inflation of tuitions are the various forms of government financing. This is basic economics. If the government stimulates demand through grants and loans, other things equal, prices (tuitions) will rise. It’s supply and demand. It is unsurprising that much of the money goes to administrative bloat. That’s how bureaucracies usually behave.

Empowering bureaucracies and not students, the fantasy of the magic college education is beat into young students’ heads from a very young age. Weeks writes:

Kids like me have been told our whole lives that higher education is the only way to be successful in America.

For young women like Weeks, motherhood is equated with failure in the new, Marxist YouGoGrrl culture permeating the land. Also, Richman explains why money from the government is pumped into colleges and universities at the behest of corporations who want to shackle future employees with debt while suppressing wages, and why it has to stop:

The solution is a complete separation of school and state at all levels. Competition drives down prices and improves products and services, as entrepreneurs strive to win customers by offering a better deal in terms of quality and cost. Government cannot help because the law of unintended consequences cannot be repealed.

What is most amazing is that Americans have blamed Weeks for doing porn rather than blaming the corrupt education system and a feminist culture that tells young women becoming mothers and wives is the surest sign of failure at life. What’s even more amazing is that women are willing to become porn actresses under the guise of chasing a degree that will “empower” them while traditional female pursuits in life never cross their mind.

Perhaps more than any of these other themes, this story illustrates how far gone traditional Anglo culture is. Cultural Marxism is the new norm, and the nuclear family is moribund. Women will do obviously anything for a rubber stamp since that is what they are indoctrinated to believe will make them “good” women, but they consider having a family and staying at home to be terrible, antiquated oppression. This, despite studies that show women are happier at home in traditional sex roles.

When a young woman is willing to take facials and perform other denigrating sex acts on film, it may be her right to do so but it speaks volumes about a culture that is spiritually and demographically dead. It also speaks volumes about the worship of a piece of paper that children are indoctrinated with by the feminist, state-run education system from the age of 5, forcing women into androgynous competition with men rather than encouraging them to become great mothers and wives investing in the next generation of humans. In other words, the Marxists won the culture war.
