Alte's most recent post awoke me from my "nothing to say" writer's block I've had lately. I think going to four funerals in four months of people I'm either related to or knew very well has something to do with it.
Death has a way of influencing life in a myriad of both profound and trivial ways.
Alte's latest, Why Women don't support the MRM made me think that perhaps I'm not running out of things to write after all.
I get asked frequently why I support the Men’s Rights Movement (MRM). You know, that’s actually a really good question. I ask myself that sometimes. Actually, I ask myself that frequently. Supporting a movement populated with men who don’t like women is a pretty thankless exercise.
Actually, I don't think that's a good question at all. There is no "Men's Rights Movement" to "support."
There is only lies and truth.
Deception and disillusionment.
The manosphere is really nothing more than a collection of folks who have started taking some of the plugs out that have connected them to the matrix of our present day society.
The only "movement" here is more and more folks identifying the ugly truths that are hidden in plain sight. Helping more and more people recognize how these truths stands in stark contrast to all the beautiful lies that most sheeple accept as our artificially constructed reality.
The only "movement" there is, is people who look at the conventional wisdom and cultural zeitgeist of our mass media indoctrinated culture, and recognize the lies and there pernicious effects in our lives.
It is not a "movement."
It is an awakening...or better yet, an UNPLUGGING.
And that is all it will ever be.
There is no candidate running for office that you can vote for to advance the idea of "men's rights."
There is no political party you can join, no "tea party" rally you can attend or no organization or cause that you can donate your money to that is going to make a damn bit of difference in our current state of affairs.
There is no possibility of working within our current system to "fix" what's wrong.
That's because there's nothing to fix.
From the view of those who have implemented the system and constructed our current situation, this shit is going off exactly as planned.
The people who wield the power in our society have deliberately shaped it to emasculate the males, de-feminize the females, sow relationship dysfunction and alienate children from their parents so as to make them more malleable and exploitable human resources.
They effected their social engineering program precisely through the creation of "movements." You think getting a bunch of men and women (who thanklessly support them) together to try and effect change in this system is ever going to accomplish anything meaningful?
I see a lot of people in the manosphere latetly calling those of us that want to see the current system crash and burn "nihilist." This is just another form of "shaming language" to keep people plugged into the matrix. The matrix cannot be reformed. It cannot be changed. It is what it is...a means of systemic enslavement to exploit humanity.
There is never going to be a movement that effects a mass unplugging of the brainwashed masses from the current matrix. The only way that happens will be total systemic collapse.
The only thing you can do, as an individual, is unplug yourself from the systems enslavement apparatus. You may be able to convince a few others to do the same, but to get an entire "movement" to do the same?
Don't hold your breath.
At best, a "movement" could make our collective enslavement a little more comfortable.
To the religiously devout like Alte, I say to you, this is the fallen world. The domain of the prince of lies. This world is his kingdom, and you will never usurp his kingdom from within. You can only seek to create your own oasis of truth and order life accordingly to avoid the traps and pitfalls deliberately designed to enslave you in some way or another.
Convince others as you can. But don't waste your hope or energy on this idea that there can be a "movement" that will make a meaningful change in the current system.
Haven't we learned by now?
Look how that last mass movement of hope for change worked out.
Seek the truth.
When you find it, order your life accordingly. This is the only path to emancipation from the systemic enslavement of our Brave New World Order.
