Video: The Meaninglessness of Modern Life

This 2006 documentary by Pria Viswalingam entitled Decadence: The Meaningless of Modern Life has proven to be prescient. In the first installment of the series, the decadence, chaos and nihilism we are only witnessing worsen a decade later in a culture that worships at the altar of shopping and eating out are examined.

It was this film, along with others that inspired me to leave the soulless emptiness of corporate America years later and chart a new course in life – free of materialism, consumerism, and the economic bondage that traps so many Americans by force of their own desires.

Since then, I’ve been forging a new path for other men to follow. To lead them out of the darkness I grew to hate so badly. One aspect of this journey has been adopting minimalism. The other (one which is still developing) is living an unapologetic, adventurous life as a world-roaming nomad.

There are some particularly revealing quotes from those interviewed by Pria sprinkled throughout the first installment of the series which focuses on the West’s love affair with money. Pria boldly asks, “Is this as good as it gets?” Which of course, any of us who have realized how the matrix manipulates our lives have to answer with an unqualified “NO!”

Petrea King from Australia’s Quest for Life Centre sums up the situation for Pria:

I think we’re completely lost. I think people know they’re living lives which aren’t deeply satisfying, aren’t deeply fulfilling.

Dr. Clive Hamilton of the Australia Institute links the empty, meaningless Anglo obsession with materialism to the skyrocketing rates of depression and SSRI use in the West:

We’re in a place where the economy is up, but our moral state is in decline. We did a study in which a third of Australians are taking antidepressants or other drugs for their psychological well-being. I mean if economic growth and affluence is so good for us, why are so many people unhappy?

And finally, William Bennett, Reagan’s education secretary puts it all into perspective, echoing the motto of the logo of The New Modern Man:

If we have full employment and great economic growth—if we have cities of gold and alabaster—but our children have not learned to walk in goodness, justice, and mercy, then the American experiment, no matter how gilded, will have failed.

As America destroys its own people by attempting to turn the nation into a Faustian economic machine – stripping people of their humanity – I for one refuse to participate in this ride and pulled the escape hatch. I now only have mercenary dealings with America, getting money and then quickly getting back out before being sucked back into the clutches of the machine.

There is more to life than continuing on the sleep-work-spend cycle until death. And one of my missions has become to show men how much life there is to live by running off the plantation.

Video: The War on Men

The War on Men has now become an acceptable topic in right-leaning news outlets. In fact, Paul Joseph Watson just featured it on his podcast. Let’s keep pushing the envelope in that Overton Window until the truth about women reaches the public conciousness.

What are your thoughts on PJW’s video?

Video of the Week: It’s All Over for Anglos

White people don’t seem to have gotten the memo that they’re being conquered – although peacefully – since feminism turned Anglo women into wannabe men instead of encouraging them to pursue their natural strengths as females and mothers. Whites get angry at more fruitful immigrants while neglecting the very reason they’re being made a minority in their own nation is due to the fact white women are statistically barren.

Due to a combination of factors, but mostly due to feminism and Marxism, white women now have an average of 1.7 children in their lifetimes. The minimum number of children to sustain a culture is 2.1 children per lifetime. To sustain perpetual economic growth the number of children per lifetime needs to be at least 3.

So, what do treasonous leaders do when white people have 1.7 children instead of 3? They bring in immigrants and refugees to keep the machinery of the consumption economy running. Meantime, white women keep on trying to be more like men, spurred on by social engineers.

What’s happening as women turn themselves into the very model of Freud’s Penis Envy theory by trying to displace men on the job? Anglo culture is dying off. You can see its effects first and foremost in American small towns that are literally withering away and dying, and in a visit to a metropolitan area in which one wonders which country they’re in, and in demographers’ pie charts like the ones above.

This video is primarily about why Texas is becoming an extension of Mexico rather than part of the United States, but the presentation also touches on the fact trends of Hispanic growth and Anglo decline are prevalent nationwide. Soon, perhaps within the next decade, Texas will no longer be a red state because of these demographic trends.

Then the Democrats will be able to do whatever they want to us, because they will have a lock on power in the electoral college. Trends also point to Democrat gains in the House and Senate in the coming decades.

As the presenter says, “It’s basically over for Anglos in Texas.” The truth is, it’s over for Anglos nationwide, they just haven’t realized feminism has cost them their nation yet.

Video of the Week: Bitter Lake

Ever wondered why what the hell we are doing in Afghanistan? How did we end up there in the first place? What is so special about Afghanistan, besides its opium production? (Incidentally, opium production has soared since the U.S. occupation of the country.)

Along comes Adam Curtis, BBC documentary filmmaker and one of the few mainstream media journalists worthy of respect in this age of deception to put together the story for us. He takes us all the way back to the days of FDR when he made a pact with Saudi Arabian King Abdulaziz on Bitter Lake. The world has never been the same since that deal.

U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East since then has led to a feedback loop as the U.S. supplies it with its wealth, empowering it to spread its violent interpretation of Islam known as Wahhabism. The West also fails to understand how repeated failures of Russian and Western powers to “transform” the region into a modern democracy are the result of a fundamental failure to understand the country’s cultural roots, political history, and societal structure. In short, the nation is culturally nothing like the gynocentric, materialistic West, and many of its beliefs are 1,400 years old.

Here’s a description of Bitter Lake from the producers:

Politicians used to have the confidence to tell us stories that made sense of the chaos of world events. But now there are no big stories and politicians react randomly to every new crisis – leaving us bewildered and disorientated. Bitter Lake is a new, adventurous and epic film by Adam Curtis that explains why the big stories that politicians tell us have become so simplified that we can’t really see the world any longer.

The narrative goes all over the world, America, Britain, Russia and Saudi Arabia – but the country at the heart of it is Afghanistan. Because Afghanistan is the place that has confronted our politicians with the terrible truth – that they cannot understand what is going on any longer. The film reveals the forces that over the past thirty years rose up and undermined the confidence of politics to understand the world.

And it shows the strange, dark role that Saudi Arabia has played in this. But Bitter Lake is also experimental. Curtis has taken the unedited rushes of everything that the BBC has ever shot in Afghanistan – and used them in new and radical ways. He has tried to build a different and more emotional way of depicting what really happened in Afghanistan. A counterpoint to the thin, narrow and increasingly destructive stories told by those in power today.

Indeed, the film can be a tad jarring sometimes in that it has such long, unedited pieces of film illustrating what life on the ground is really like in Afghanistan.

Make no mistake Curtis often has a left bias, but he’s much more balanced and insightful than virtually anyone else on a mainstream channel. If anything, we learn Western governments are every bit as corrupt as the governments we criticize for being corrupt in the Middle East.

Video of the Week: Easier to Kill a Million People Than to Control a Million People

Ever wonder what the elites are really talking about when they get together, whether it be at the Bilderberg Group or at other closed door meetings the sycophants in the media never tell you details about? This clip of Zbigniew Brzezinski (the man behind the NWO puppet Obama) speaking before British elites helps fill in some of the missing pieces of the puzzle.

Even back in 2008, the elite were disturbed about the “awakening” that is going on among the population since their method of controlling the masses, i.e. the collective mass delusion of television news and programming has been turned into a laughingstock.

As always with the psychopaths who run the world, it’s all about maintaining their power and control over billions of people and nothing else. One can only imagine what shit fits they’re having in 2016, as the awakening has led to Brexit and the rise of Donald Trump. The masses they want to dominate are in a decidedly anti-establishment mood.

Here’s the full text of Brzezinski’s speech, which is clipped into the most relevant and chilling portion in our Video of the Week.

For the first time in human history almost all of humanity is politically activated, politically conscious and politically interactive… The resulting global political activism is generating a surge in the quest for personal dignity, cultural respect and economic opportunity in a world painfully scarred by memories of centuries-long alien colonial or imperial domination… The worldwide yearning for human dignity is the central challenge inherent in the phenomenon of global political awakening… That awakening is socially massive and politically radicalizing… The nearly universal access to radio, television and increasingly the Internet is creating a community of shared perceptions and envy that can be galvanized and channeled by demagogic political or religious passions. These energies transcend sovereign borders and pose a challenge both to existing states as well as to the existing global hierarchy, on top of which America still perches…

The youth of the Third World are particularly restless and resentful. The demographic revolution they embody is thus a political time-bomb, as well… Their potential revolutionary spearhead is likely to emerge from among the scores of millions of students concentrated in the often intellectually dubious “tertiary level” educational institutions of developing countries. Depending on the definition of the tertiary educational level, there are currently worldwide between 80 and 130 million “college” students. Typically originating from the socially insecure lower middle class and inflamed by a sense of social outrage, these millions of students are revolutionaries-in-waiting, already semi-mobilized in large congregations, connected by the Internet and pre-positioned for a replay on a larger scale of what transpired years earlier in Mexico City or in Tiananmen Square. Their physical energy and emotional frustration is just waiting to be triggered by a cause, or a faith, or a hatred…

[The] major world powers, new and old, also face a novel reality: while the lethality of their military might is greater than ever, their capacity to impose control over the politically awakened masses of the world is at a historic low. To put it bluntly: in earlier times, it was easier to control one million people than to physically kill one million people; today, it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control one million people.

It is easier to kill, than to control.

Chilling words from people who see the masses as nothing but cattle to be microchipped and controlled, or turned into figurative human batteries as The Matrix alluded to. One must think that killing millions – as U.S. foreign policy has already done in the past half century – would be nothing but collateral damage to men like Brzezinski.

If there’s one thing the Internet has done, it has revealed the horror show world politics is rather than the sugar-coated fantasies the MSM once had us believing.

Video of the Week: Candy

Sometimes a Video of the Week will take on a serious tone. This week we’re making a turn towards lighter (and sexier) fare. This week features one of my favorite videos starring sexy Latin women of all shades – white, brown, and black – dressing up like candy. It’s a video that’s sure to make feminist heads explode.

If only they could understand the lyrics. They’d really be in for a shit fit.

As you will see, the difference between Anglo women and Latin women is astonishing for the uninitiated to Spanish culture. These girls are smiling, they like men, they like being sexy, they like being physical, they like having fun, they don’t dangle their sexuality over men’s heads like Anglo women, waving a steak over a hungry dog’s mouth but never giving him a bite. They’re the antithesis of the obnoxious, in your face YouGoGrrls that dominate American music videos.

Maybe that’s why people seem happier and more well-adjusted here. In contrast to the Puritanical sexual repression of Anglo America, people are getting sexed on the regular down here. Sex is a normal part of life instead of something “dirty” and sexuality is normal rather than something to be ashamed of. How did things get so twisted back home?

In my mind, Rookh Kshatriya has the right idea in his thought piece about Anglo culture:

Feminism in Anglo Saxon cultures has a strident, misandrist undertone entirely lacking in continental countries. It has little to do with improving life for women and a lot to do with persecuting, hating and excluding men, something it has been singularly successful in achieving. Julius Evola has written that Anglo Saxon culture spontaneously promotes poor relations between the sexes and misandry in general due to its underlying puritanism. This gives women the notion that the world ‘owes’ them something (a living, an explanation) along with the idea that men are beasts of burden for their edification and amusement. Anglo Saxon women fundamentally do not like men.

Putting the academic discussion aside, I’ve been in and out of Latin America for over 10 years now, but still remember the first few excursions and how clueless I was about how much more libertine, and much more fun Latin culture is to be in. It didn’t take me long to pick it up, but after being stewed and basted in narratives that told me men are evil for having a penis and having sexual desire, it was both jarring and refreshing to be somewhere the attitude is 180 degrees different.

I quickly became addicted, and the rest, as they say, is history. I’m now capping off my first full year as an American expat and don’t want to come home. Being around women that like men and enjoy their sexuality is definitely as sweet as candy. Enjoy the video!

Video of the Week: The Fall of Rome – Modern Parallels

Stefan Molyneux creates a lot of high quality content, and this 2 1/2 hour long presentation on The Fall of Rome and Modern Parallels is no exception. It’s often said history repeats itself, but this presentation proves history doesn’t repeat as much as it echoes. When one looks back across a couple of thousand of years of history, it’s hard not to see parallels between Roman society and Western society. (The similarities even stretch back to Ancient Greece, and all other “High Cultures” studied by Spengler, the prophet of Western decline on whose ideas the Decline of the West section of The New Modern Man are built. Molyneux doesn’t really touch on Spengler, but he doesn’t need to in this tour de force history lesson).

As an aside, illustrating just how similar some of our present day problems are to historical problems faced by our “parent” civilizations, Polybius wrote this account of the demographic death of Greece, and with only “Greece” changed to “America” or “Europe” this 2,000 year old quote could just as easily apply in the early 21st century:

In our time, all Greece was visited by a dearth of children and general decay of population…this evil grew upon us rapidly, and without attracting attention, by our men becoming perverted to the passion for show and money and the pleasures of an idle life.

Whether demographic decline or cultural decay or another measure, each historian has their own model of how a society rises and declines. It’s important to recognize the similarities between each model. The rise and fall of Rome seems to follow this cycle:

  • Subsistence
  • Expansion
  • Decadence

Beyond that very prescient quote and general cycle of rise and fall of a civilization, early in the video Molyneux points out it’s ultimately the decisions that get made that create the consequences everyone else must deal with, so it’s not some inevitable causality that afflicts decline on a people as much as it is the cultural “zeitgeist” of the time. He also points out historical knowledge is more important than historical fact, a pearl of wisdom from none other than the great Lord Acton. So, while the consequences of past decisions and historical cycles aren’t impossible to escape, they’re extremely hard to escape.

At its peak, the Roman Empire stretched from Scotland to Iraq. That is an enormous swath of real estate. Even 2,000 years ago you could travel anywhere in this large empire and have your currency accepted virtually anywhere while being protected by the same laws. As Molyneux points out, this was a truly amazing accomplishment, especially considering the timeframe. At the American Empire’s peak, it stretched from sea to shining sea. Someday soon perhaps, as Pat Buchanan predicted the U.S. could also breakup into smaller pieces.

Since the very foundations of the West lie in Rome, it is very important to study the rise and fall of that civilization. Molyneux notes the decline of the West is far advanced. He presents the fundamental realities of why Rome fell, and why they’re of fundamental importance to guiding our decisions as we face a similar fate.

Of course, we have long been ensconced in the “decadence” phase. This leads to an enormous welfare state and immigrants who only come to take advantage of the largesse. Thus, in its success lies each society’s own demise. Molyneux also touches on how revisionist history in the liberal education system is leading to generations of spineless people debased from their history with nothing to be proud of. His synthesis of history with philosophy really works, and is illuminating insofar as letting us know just how far we have fallen.

This presentation is more enlightening and detailed than many of the college level history classes I took. It’s an excellent crash course in why things have become so fucked, and why we have a slim chance of recovery at this point. Enjoy. Hopefully you will find it as enlightening as I did.
