Welcome back to the Lightning Round, we’ve got a large one today.
The emotions and our genetic drives of red-pill nihilism are just as enslaving and meaningless as blue-pill delusions. In a somewhat related post, Roissy talks of how players lose the ability to find divine love in their quest for meaningless sex.
Feminism is the ideological justification for female childlessness. No matter how much utopian ideologies may ignore it; choices have consequences.
Apocalypse Nowish gives one of the clearest, most straightforward explanations of how the banking system and the government are colluding to rob you.
In surprising news, a study shows government size and economic growth are negatively correlated. The Captain had already pointed out what could have been.
In related news, it seems Americans lost 20 years of wealth between 2007 and 2010, and everybody makes less except seniors. Related: We are becoming a rental generation and the government refuses to learn from past mistakes.
But, Fearsome Pirate has hope that progressivism can be smashed, while Zero Hedge calls us to have courage in the fight against the tyrants.
Some are not so hopeful. Noting that in fact, Canada is actively destroying itself.
Zero Hedge says bring it on, the solution to our problems is collapse.
The Captain asks “Is it me, or is there something wrong with everybody else?”, and concludes it’s everybody else. Red-pill thinking requires a certain amount of arrogance.
Wintery Knight points out that young Christians are abandoning the fight in an anti-intellectual compartmentalization of the faith. Will S comments. If Christians give up on changing the culture, what then do we have?
Much has been written on Christian relationships in the manosphere in the last week:
Athol notes that the Bible was written for when men were all alphas under the law, so it recommends beta behaviour, but when culture betaized men, this created hardcore mode for Christian men.
Dalrock points out that the celibate boyfriend is non-biblical. All Christian relationships should be geared towards sex as soon as possible, within marriage.
UMan coins the phrase girligious and notes that Christian marriage has the advantage of a “a rule book written thousands of years ago” in our battle to preserve traditional marriage.
I knew men committed more suicide, but I never knew it was quite this bad. One possible cause could be that boys are persecuted by the public schools.
Wintery Knight points out the lie that homosexual couples are as good for raising children as straight couples. Related: A homosexual Mormon enjoys a happy an fulfilling heterosexual marriage and family.
Some people still blindly defend the worthless university system and encourage the degree bubble.
Every time I doubt the Conservative Party (and voting in general), they do some small thing that encourages me.
Ummm… No. Chivalry is for ladies, and there are few ladies nowadays.
