I am starting to understand why idiot savants like George Lucas can’t leave anything alone, and so like Georgie and so many others that decide they have one more thing to say, I realized there was (for the moment) something that needed to be said.
I had an epiphany during an intimate moment, that there is one thing that the sphere, the libertarians, the traditionalists, the MRAs and almost everyone else dances around but doesn’t want to admit.
A piece of the red pill that is hard to swallow, that most men don’t want to swallow, even after swallowing the truth about hypergamy and women’s nature.
We talk about the nature of men. We believe that because we are men, that we understand our own nature, we even accept as given that people in society (even feminists that exaggerate the evils of men) on some level understand the basic drives and nature of men (even as they want to change those drives and basic nature).
We like to believe that the veil that hides our vision is the “mystic” of women’s true nature. Once that veil is torn, we are free.
There is a reason democracies all end in tyranny. There is a reason people flock to communism and socialism and liberalism, despite the facts that show how horrible it is. There is a reason otherwise bright men foolishly want to believe there are better men (there are not) that should rule over them, the longing for “a king.” Why libertarianism will never be more than a fringe movement.
A reason why beta males so easily and happily became dogs in our society, why so many men become white knight judas. Why People have nostalgia for the past, or think their religion is the one that should rule them all (but also explains why religion ebbs during times of plenty.). The answer for why good people do nothing.
And why ultimately, the attempts by socons, MRAs and any other group trying to save western civilization will fail.
We want to believe it is outside forces (the same kind of crap the feminists believe) that have made men weak. Or that it is some huge conspiracy.
Even as we forget the truism that you cannot con an honest man (or more precisely unwilling man).
When I was a boy, I remember reading a science fiction story (that I can’t for the life of me remember the author or the title) about an alien (or group of aliens) that captured a human being despite the warnings to stay clear of us.
It was a very flattering piece of literature. The man, despite being shown repeatedly that escape from capture and imprisonment was impossible, never gave up, never gave in and eventually escaped.
We like to believe. Want to believe that men want to be free. That they would rather die than be slaves. That we would be unbowed and unbroken if imprisoned. That we would rage like snarling animals against our captors. That it is intrinsically part of our nature to be free. God made us this way. That our natural inclination is be “rugged individuals.”
Even though the evidence is clearly the opposite. That there are millions that are relatively docile in incarceration in the United States alone.
There is only one freedom that the vast majority of people, male and female, long for:
The Freedom From Responsibility.
We talk about women naturally wanting to submit to a dominate male, but the natural inclination of most men is to submit. Which is why the henpecked husband has been a staple of literature from before Shakespeare.
For some the dominating male is “God” for some the fearless leader. It doesn’t matter. Most men want someone to tell them how to live.
The hearts of most men long to submit. To go back to their childhood where they don’t have to worry about anything, except the fear of punishment, they want to be told what to do, what to think, how to act.
People don’t want to be free. Its a burden, its a responsibility, a chore, it is easier to embrace liberalism and expect your social security check than to look after yourself.
The only time people want to be free is when their survival depends on it, when they think the goodies on the other side are really going to be better, and even then they’ll be afraid to leave the chains.
Submissiveness is a species wide trait.
You cannot extol men to be free and expect them to embrace it.
