An analysis of the schism growing within the MRM by Eagleeye. He points out quite succinctly some of the root causes of the unease that a a number of us who identify ourselves (to any extent) as MRAs feel about the direction a portion of the movement is taking.
The thing is that this isn't just about traditionalists now - it's about anyone who disagrees with the narrative AVFM has set out. Now, I won't deny that Dr. Elam has done a lot of good; even Aurini, who is highly critical of the movement as a whole, admits that. Part of the reason I came back to the red-pill world was because of AVFM's activism sparking interest in me. But the reason why I'm here to begin with is due to two places: Angry Harry and Stand Your Ground from back in 2004-2005. As far as I can piece things together, AH has been attacked for pointing out the questionable veracity of repressed memories, and Factory has been attacked, too. Reports are also that the banner linking back to AH's site has been taken off AVFM. Remember that AH and Factory have not even mentioned (as far as I know) their positions on so-called "traditionalism", so that's not the reason why they were attacked.
Also remember the three weapons of the Rabbit People, as laid out by Vox Day:
- Demanding sensitvity.
- Name-calling and labelling.
I don't like the taste in my mouth, good sir, no I do not one bit.
Still, I'm not too worried about what happens next, for the following two reasons:
- The simple fact that the red-pill consciousness of which the MRM is a part of is a swarm. If you cut a swarm in two, you don't get a dead swarm, you get two swarms which continue to grow in their own right. The strength of a swarm comes not so much from its size (although that is a factor) but from the asymmetrical nature of its attacks.
- The collapse will come anyway. The efforts of the red-pill world will help speed it along, but even if we did not exist, it would still be inherently unstable and collapse under its own weight anyway.
