The Manosphere, silly name, serious shit – kinda. Well, mostly it’s about getting puss, because that’s what brings the crowds. Whether you are a staunchly MGTOW incel monk or a successful PUA, you bet your ass it’s on your mind. Any man who would claim anything to the contrary is a damned liar. For my money, it would be an untenable argument to say that most of western civilization isn’t geared in one way or another to banging puss. And that is the crossroads of Manosphere journalism, there are articles about getting puss, and then everything else. This is an article about the other shit.
My awareness of “the ‘sphere” is entirely due to one specific site, Return of Kings. It almost reminds me of the old school Maxim magazine era – circa 2000 – when it was actually funny. Yet there is a stark qualitative difference between the two, RoK is moderately insightful and Maxim was mostly about advertising. Now I could give two shits and a greasy fart about a print magazine for the exact reason mentioned above. Advertising is more than distracting, it is downright odious. As an ironic insult it would be fitting to buy Edward Bernay’s grave and offer the public the opportunity to spit on it free of charge.
Return of Kings has some good material that pertains to both philosophy and sociology. I can even say this after recieving a lifetime banning from the comment section for calling Tuthmosis a nigger. It was a highly anomalous article considering that his oeuvre is by and large pretty good. Apparently though, he woke up hating whitey that day and felt like getting all BLM. I can’t even find the article anymore, but I assure you, it was your garden variety race trolling effluvium.
Yet, this is precisely what makes the Manosphere great, a spirited philosophical debate amongst a diverse group of men. Dudes got some vastly different ethos at work in their lives. For instance, I happen to think Chateau Heartiste’s worship of Donald Trump to border on mental illness and retardation. However, the reasons for ascribing value to yet another “traditionalist” American President and hoping he will solve the problems his predecessors wrought I get. Take a good look through goodbyeamerica…in pictures, and traditionalism doesn’t look half bad. Liberalism undoubtedly is showing itself to be civilizational cancer.
How could it possibly be a surprise that people that you don’t share race, language, religion, or any form of culture in common with – you don’t get along with. But, when you acknowledge differences some magical shit happens. People become curious about, and positively interested in completely foreign cultures and customs. I happen to be fascinated in language, both written and spoken. As a corollary I learn about the history of the cultures who spoke: Sumerian, Akkadian, Gaelic, Aramaic, Greek, Hebrew, Sanskrit, Phoenician, Latin, Chinese, Ugro-Finnish. All of these cultures share the commonality of reverence for their culture and quite often the desire to conquer and subjugate “inferior” cultures.
What liberalism today isn’t is tolerance for differences. Or even the curiosity that drove historical physicians to dissect corpses for pathological understanding of the body. I personally don’t have children, but I wouldn’t condone a drag queen reading stories about tranvestitism to a todler. Not because I believe they are terrible human beings, but that they are terribly confused human beings. Children don’t have context for the difference between trans-sexuals vs. transvestites. For that matter adults don’t really have context for sexual fetishes vs. “identity” either. So in that vein, I think tolerance of someone you see as vastly different is pretty munificent. I’m not going to celebrate it, and certainly not defer to it, you can go fuck yourself.
This is the circle of life, shit talk, it truly does make the world go round. Families talk shit about eachother, strangers talk shit about eachother, lovers, enemies, etc. The humans in this human condition don’t see eye to eye with eachother much. But you won’t get that from CNN, those assclowns (here’s looking at you Anderson!) don’t tolerate differences.
So my advice is this:
Figure out things using your own inherent abilities of intuition, reason, and wisdom. People who want your money or your vote are irrepressible mother-fucking liars. Traditions aren’t always bad and repressive, and change isn’t always for the worse. Dignity of spirit will always lead you towards truth. And external technology isn’t the answer to mankind’s understanding of himself. If we are ruled by Archons then it is only because we give them interdimensional pieces of shit informal consent to do so.
