Over the last week or so the news and the topics around the manosphere have been fairly depressing. There has been a move towards the tolerence of the rude, the activists, those who break all protocols. Without any limits, people become feral. And that leads to flight: anyone with morals, with sense, or who wishes well for their children gets as far away from the neobarbarians as possible. Vanessa points this out bluntly, describing what it is like in Washington DC.
I sometimes had to deal with these horrible women and their horrible children. On my last ride in, they were literally swinging from the bars like a pack of monkeys. Which is why I now drive out of my way to take the train in from New Carrollton station.
A black woman fleeing other black women. It has come to this.
Remember the last one?
“She want to be a man, I’m gonna treat you like a man,” the driver announces to the screaming crowd.
Well said, sir.
For that, in a nutshell, is what we’re seeing here. In their attempt to be like men, women are degrading into the worst sort of man. The type of man who doesn’t survive for long because other men won’t tolerate his madness. These women are positively unnatural and they only survive and thrive because of the power of a tyrannical state.
I used to look to men to protect me from other men, but now I look for men to protect me from other women. Sign of the times.
The trouble is that the men have been put to sleep. They have become afraid. Not of standing up to these people: but of losing our jobs if we push back. Of being in court because some crusading moron decides that we are racist — because we say that acting ferally is wrong. Consider for a second the comments of David Rankin. Ngai Puhi is the maori tribe (iwi) that runs the national meeting house because it is their tribal group: tikanga is protocol or culture. Kuia is an older woman, a grandmother, who has status. Harawera is an older woman who leads a subtribe of radical, feral Maori — and has never been afraid to use violence against other Maori to get her way. From the Herald.
[Rankin] said it was culturally wrong for someone who belonged to a marae to be welcomed onto it, and Maori “across the country … laugh every time the Te Tii marae embarrasses itself by throwing out protocols because they feel threatened by the Harawiras’ stand-over tactics”.
“Titewhai has no clue what she is doing. Her culture is based around media coverage and radicalism, not what is true Maori tikanga. To be welcomed onto your own marae as a guest goes completely against our culture,” Mr Rankin said.
“There are plenty of kuia from other areas who could fulfil that role and come on with John Key as a guest. That is the correct protocol.”
Now Isaiah has a comment here. We are drunk. On the wrath of God. And it is time to become sober.
17 Rouse yourself, rouse yourself! Stand up, O Jerusalem, you who have drunk at the hand of the LORD the cup of his wrath, who have drunk to the dregs the bowl of staggering.
18 There is no one to guide her among all the children she has borne; there is no one to take her by the hand among all the children she has brought up.
19 These two things have befallen you — who will grieve with you? — devastation and destruction, famine and sword — who will comfort you?
20 Your children have fainted, they lie at the head of every street like an antelope in a net; they are full of the wrath of the LORD, the rebuke of your God.
21 Therefore hear this, you who are wounded, who are drunk, but not with wine: 22 Thus says your Sovereign, the LORD, your God who pleads the cause of his people: See, I have taken from your hand the cup of staggering; you shall drink no more from the bowl of my wrath.
23 And I will put it into the hand of your tormentors, who have said to you, “Bow down, that we may walk on you”; and you have made your back like the ground and like the street for them to walk on
Now what are we to do as Christian men? Well firstly, we have to stop pretending that we need to be perfect to lead.
This idea that men have to be perfect before we can expect anything from women is more of the standard fare we get from feminised Christian leaders, and it has no basis in Scripture
We don’t. None of us is perfect. But we are supposed to advocate for some basic standards. These can be summarised as Love the LORD your God and Love your neighbour — as both Jesus and the Pharisees taught, the law falls logically out of those two statements.
But to do this, we must no longer be drunk on the spirit of this age. Which is self autonomy, self freedom, self determination. We must say that there are approved ways of behaving in any civilisation, and we expect all adults to accede to these things.
The older of us, and the men among us, need to stand for being civilized, not feral. Sherlock commented on this —
Something a friend of mine from Thailand told me illustrates this. She complained that Thai women, behaved so much worse after emigrating to the country where we live now than they did in Thailand. She told me how sweet and nice and good so many of them had been there and how they did things here that they never would have done in Thailand. The change in behavior was bigger for Thai women than for Thai men.
The reason for this change of behavior is that when a Thai woman moves she looses the constant presence of a male power that curbs her potential for immoral behavior and brings out her best behavior. This male power is a combination of husbands, fathers, brothers, men in general and almost most importantly the monks and the way the monks uphold the RULES of Buddhist morality as Thai people see them and the way men in general assert them. Because of this male certainty regarding rule based morality women in Thailand feel a certainty about the moral direction that stems from men and they submit to it. When they do they become more feminine and loving.
When a woman is without male influence and support, directly through people or indirectly through very solid moral and social norms, she must rest more on her own male side in order to provide solidity and direction to her life. Drawing on her male side ilk this makes her less feminine, less loving, less happy, resentful, bitchy etc. It also can never be as strong as the direction and support she could have gotten from strong men in her life and strong male originated norms in society. This makes her less moral and more inclined to act badly in all sorts of ways.
Now, this does not mean that our societies and cultures are completely holy and right. They are not. We must continually reform ourselves and our nations. But there is more light sneaking in: for all cultures have a basic sense of morality. We are designed as moral beings. Let is not deny that. The ferals may be drunk on their freedom, but without limits there is no safety, and without safety there is no joy.
And if men need to “Man up” it is around this, not marrying into feraldom.
