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