Yesterday I stumbled across the article excerpted below. It’s not new, but it is very profound and definitely worth a read. I agree with Roosh 100% save for a couple of caveats:
- I’m not sure nationalism is the solution. I am not against banding together with like people and like minds but I am afraid that nationalism can give rise to illegitimate, tyrannical governments just as easily as any other “-ism”. In the word’s of Ferris Bueller, “-isms in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an ism, he should believe in himself.” I would add to that that he should believe in liberty as well. Like people of like minds can form cooperative groups and even whole societies with out a team flag and a team song. I believe that “The Wave” (aka “Die Welle”) aptly demonstrates the very real dangers of natioanlism.
- I believe that there is a strong possibility that Edward Snowden is still working for the elites, either knowingly or unknowingly.
- I’m not quite as pessimistic as Roosh is. I agree with with his assessment of the world today but I think that enough people can be aroused from the slumber, there still is hope. Roosh argues that the internet is nothing more than a tool of a distraction which benefits the elites. I agree with him, as of today. However, the Internet also provides the ability to share information at lightning speed for nearly zero cost. If utilized correctly this is a very powerful tool. I am not confident that the elites can put this cat back into the bag, try as they may.
Whatever the case is, I heard his message loud and clear and it really hit home. Ever since reading this article I’ve been feeling a little guilty about all the hours I’ve wasted trolling idiots and arguing about non-issues. Sure sometimes it’s fun to piss off feminist social justice warriors but I could not agree more that this is not what we really need to focus on. I’m sure in the future I will still not be able to resist commenting on the non-issues but alongside it I would to write more about things that really matter. This article inspired me, I hope it will inspire you to.
We Are Nothing More Than Distracted Sheep In The Real Game Of Power
by Roosh V
Beliefs in the manosphere are often termed “red pill,” an analogy to the Matrix, where those who know “truth” are unplugged from the system and can see the world for what it really is, but men who use this analogy did not watch the two Matrix sequels, where we learn that the robots allowed the resistance to operate. The robots had to give humans who couldn’t tolerate the Matrix an outlet that could be controlled and monitored, and when the resistance got too big, they could be easily destroyed in one attack. The reset button would allow the status quo to continue, unimpeded.
The current war between feminists and progressives against the manosphere and those with more conservative beliefs is by design. The manosphere is allowed to broadcast because it shows to the masses that “free speech” or opposing viewpoints is allowed, proving that we all live in a “democratic” society. However, ideas from the manosphere do nothing to legitimately threaten the power elite, those in possession of real power. Besides influencing a tiny minority of men, the manosphere is—as of now—meaningless and ineffective on a societal level.
