Cappy Cap - Where's the feminist self-improvement counterpart?
And while the two examples above focus on physic fitness and health, if you step back and cast a wider net, you'll realize The Manosphere, as well as various economics blogs, follow a similar parallel. Namely one of self-improvement. Men trying to improve their chances with women. Men trying to advance their careers and financial success. Men (and women) trying to start businesses. And men and women trying to aim for happier, better lives. They are constantly asking "what can I do to improve myself."Economic Collapse Blog - Whenever a tragedy happens, they take more freedom from us
I have a simple question.
Where is the feminist equivalent of this?
No matter how much money we spend, there is no way that the federal government will ever be able to provide enough security for all of those soft targets. Even if our society morphed into something that resembled George Orwell's "1984", the government would still never be able to guarantee our safety. Unfortunately, in the aftermath of this attack there will inevitably be calls for "increased security" and "more anti-terror legislation". The answer always seems to be to expand the emerging police state.Vox Popoli - So much to learn
It is easy to say, well, we'll keep the Western strictures against widow-strangling, witch-burning, and academic-raping, we'll just toss the ones against homosexual-marrying, public fornication, polygamy, and letting children play with loaded guns... wait a minute! The brutal reality is that a society in which most children are "allowed to make their own choices and follow their own interests" is a society where the values, and the resulting societal strictures, will eventually be decided by those semi-feral children and not their overly permissive parents.Stares at the World - Sunday Sermon.
What has long been decried by the civilized Christian West as "the cowardly act of animals" – how very raciss and judgmental – may well become the next "new normal". No one should be so foolish as to believe that behavioral change on a societal level is either predestined or readily controlled by government bureaucracy.
Nonetheless it is a beautifully written piece of fiction. You don’t need to be a Catholic to appreciate this, you just need to be a real Man. It’s chock full of True Grit, of real masculinity crushing a simpering rabbit person. This is how you deal with their ilk – state the Truth bluntly and politely. They’re going to call you a demon no matter what you do or say – but speaking to them like a Truly Civilized Man, unafraid of the consequences, sends their mind into a death spiral.Dr. Faust - Bane in The Dark Knight Rises said it best.
Free Northerner - Go big or go home.Technological progress masks social decay. While gun wounds have increased gun murders has decreased and the progressives celebrate their victory of marching ever leftwards to utopia. There is no social progress. There is only the advance of technology which may hasten social decay.The technological singularity is not a given. The rate of advance of computers is not a static thing. Kurzweil's calculations tend to gloss over the most important element of building a machine, the person operating it. It's been said that we cannot see the future because of the present.The west has a fascination with the noble savage that has become suicidal. Avatar, The Last Samurai, Dances With Wolves, multiculturalism are all related, have all fueled the suicide of the west as it has turned in fratricide against the white fathers who built it from wood and rock.
Therefore, when pursuing relationships, you should have a clear goal of what you want out of the relationship and how it will help you achieve your mission. Plan out what you want.DEMCAD - The first sign of trouble.
If your goal is a family and a committed relationship, then find the right girl, seal the deal, and get married. Do it purposefully; do it right. Don’t fall into a long-term relationship half accidently, then move in together and/or get married after a few years because that’s how things go. Plan it out.
If your goal is hedonism and avoiding commitment, do it right; be a player, start gaming, and have the wildest ride you can. Don’t limit your hedonism to a “safe”, mediocre LTR.
My problem with LTR’s is that they are not succeeding at serving any particular mission all that well. It is a mediocre half-solution that seems to simply try to fill a gap in life without any particular greater purpose behind it.
Essentially go big or go home.
