Man’s Place Among the Ruins

The self-aware man today stands upon the ruins of what he once believed to be a worthwhile society. Where once he dreamed and desired, his basic ambitions have been distorted beyond recognition and then used against him to drag him beneath the rubble. His simple idea of a family has been corrupted. No longer can he entertain that dangerous thought without consciously facing the reality that he will likely be destroyed by those he holds dearest. Despite his heroic efforts to maintain order and stability, his partner is incentivised to rip apart the foundations for short term gains and a lifetime of enslavement on behalf of the now self-aware man. If by some failure of logic and observation the man decides to play that dangerous game once more, his life is destined to be ripped away from him as he is dragged far beneath the ruins where only cynicism remains.

Down beneath that rubble, where hopes and dreams lay and cynicism takes root, it’s long tendrils stretch out to brush against a man on the surface of the ruins, scrounging around for scraps of what used to be so that he may try and achieve some semblance of a purpose that has long since left his kind. Try as he might, anything of value he finds will return once more to the ruins because nothing can grow there. The decay of the decadence pollutes the environment in which anything of value might be found, and so it is corrupted simply by being among the ruins.

And so man finds himself in a precarious and curious place among the ruins. While he has lost much there, what he does upon where he stands can determine his purpose, unlike those lost in the depths of decay.

Any man of sentiment will naturally mourn what he gazes upon: a society that was once proud, productive, and prosperous. Not without faults or falsehoods, but of a common purpose. To replace this, a collection of lies that spurned the weaker sex to set the foundations ablaze out of spite, to destroy it for its own sake as a child throws a tantrum. The men who stood by as the torch was passed to her instead of him are just as guilty of the weakening of the foundations that have been built across generations.

How can a man not mourn the passing of something so great? It was pure potential incarnate, and it was squandered at the behest of those who would never dream of utilizing it to even half of its potential. And so the man mourns what lays before him and wishes to return to days of yore, but this is not his fate. To lament the passing of something is temporary, and he should not be consumed in his grief lest he loses himself in it.

This great sadness naturally leads to anger. Anger towards those who exist among the ruins, ignorant of the decay around them and those who actively destroy what little remains, anger at how it was allowed to happen in the first place, and anger at what he feels was robbed of him. He will find in time, hopefully sooner rather than later, that this is as futile as searching for something of value that is untainted by what lies around it.

Not everything he will come across will be debased and foul, though much will be. When he does find something that sparks that glimmer of hope deep within him, that part yearning for the traditional purpose he originally sought, he will be faced with one of his greatest tests. Will he be strong enough to understand the sad yet vital truth that this value is corrupted by the nature of its environment, no matter the strength of it on its own, or will he be fooled as so many wandering men among the ruins who came before him and strive in vain to preserve this value he has gathered from the wreckage, only to be pulled beneath the surface and entrapped by his own ambitions and hubris?

Entertain whatever he can find among the ruins as he comes across it, but it is by no means the ending point of his voyage across the wasteland. No, he is destined to survive here, and with a little perseverance, he can even thrive, but he will have to learn to adapt to the new climate. No longer can he rely on the old foundations to support him and his dreams and desires. Instead, he will have to rebuild those foundations himself.

As he toils away building his castle among the ruins, bystanders will stop and admire his efforts, in awe at his dedication in the face of such meaninglessness. They may stop and think “how can something grow out of his sewage we find ourselves in”, and just as quickly as the reflection comes to them, it leaves them to be replaced by jealousy, resentment, and hate. Some may band together to besiege this castle, but the very act of rebuilding the foundations has made his fortifications immune to such pettiness and cowardice.

From atop his tower, he looks down upon these people who would have kept him down there among the ruins if he followed them and feels pride in his decision to take the risk of leaving the group to build something for himself. It may not be what he originally desired, and it may not replace that yearning for what came before, but it’s better than anything to be found on the blasted surface, and certainly better than the terrible fate that awaits the men below, pulled in to the depths of the aimless void of suffering for men who could not adapt.

From his position of strength, he can begin to venture out once more, knowing that he has a retreat and a purpose instead of wandering aimlessly in the wasteland. Now, he may begin to notice other constructs being erected around him, symbols of resistance against the encroaching lethargy and a resurgence of hope that he once thought lost.

MGTOW and the Fermi Paradox

What if the current state of modern society is not unique to humans? What if female nature is consistent across all or most intelligent species in the universe? I am proposing that female nature, or the rise of feminism, is a potential filter for the Fermi Paradox and an explanation for the absence of extraterrestrial life.

The prosperity required to create feminism is the catalyst for the end of a civilization. Perhaps nature has encoded this failsafe, designed to prevent any one species from becoming too advanced, into the mating strategy of weaker men.

Any sexually dimorphic alien species will face the same problems we face because the female of the species will have evolved with the same behavioral tendencies to manipulate the males in her vicinity for survival. This assumed similarity in female sexual strategy between species means the males operate on the same assumptions. Eventually, any alien species will be overwhelmed by lesser males empowering the women as a means of destabilizing the mating pool for a chance to reproduce, or by a sinister force that seeks to destabilize the civilization for ulterior motives. If the biological impulses are designed to deteriorate a civilization after it reaches a certain level of prosperity, then the only thing that can be trusted to ensure survival and continued growth is an enduring culture. This, of course, is virtually impossible because cultures change with each generation, as things are stripped away and added over time.

To better illustrate my point, let’s consider what a successful species could do to reach the stars. If intelligence is based on genetics and environmental factors, perhaps there is a species that took their best and brightest and gave them a harem of females to reproduce with, giving their offspring every advantage needed to succeed and prosper for the greater good of the species. Imagine if Isaac Newton, one of the great MGTOW of history, was provided a harem at no expense and not required to expend any time in maintaining it. Some alien species might have learned to use the females as a reward mechanism for the males on a planetary scale, in addition to the institution of marriage to provide an outlet of productivity for men on an individual scale. Using men’s reproductive urges as a driving force of creation instead of a means to control them is the difference between a space-faring civilization and a doomed one.

Don’t get your panties in a bunch, buddy. I’m not advocating for marriage, I’m acknowledging that marriage is the bedrock of civilization and gives men a reason to continue building and maintaining it. Going MGTOW is harder for the average man than you realize, which makes our current situation even more perplexing. What kind of sexual strategy, on the part of females, advocates for forcing 80% of the males out of the pool of potential mates? It is a self-correcting problem, as no society can withstand the raw destructive nature of feminism, but why does this happen? Looking at the Roman civilization, women had the most rights at the end of the civilization, only to lose it all after the collapse. If women are weaker in body and mind, which they are, what madness drove men to give them control of society? The answer is the great filter that is prosperity. Most of the filters already existing in the Fermi Paradox except for exterior forces like natural disasters or meteors are a product of prosperity. Nuclear Armageddon is only possible because of the advancement of technology, as is resource depletion and overpopulation. Feminism is included as a product of prosperity as well, because it can only exist in certain delicate conditions.

These repeated mistakes throughout our history are due to the cyclical nature of civilizations. There is a great book called “The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers: Economic Change and Military Conflict from 1500 to 2000” by Paul Kennedy which explores the causes of decline between the great empires of history and how they differ and more often coincide. Men have understood female nature at different points in time. Reading old texts from Greece, China and Japan gives an insight into cultures of masculinity and pride. This type of culture can never endure because there are always more losers than winners, more men with weak wills looking for an opportunity to dethrone and destroy a stronger man. As technology advanced and equalized the playing field by extending the life expectancy for the weaker men and giving them the means to attack the physically superior, the game changed. It no longer was about passing on knowledge to the worthy, to those who could understand it and use it to control and manipulate the world around them, but instead to appeal to the masses, to win over the lowest common denominator.

There is hope for fixing this problem with the same advancement of technology that helped create it, but I’m not holding my breath waiting for it. The artificial wombs that so many men in the MGTOW community wish for would leave half the population to wither and die, something unrealistic for a society that isn’t even as gynocentric as ours. Expect regulations and bans on future reproductive technology to prevent men from liberating themselves from the system.

As MGTOW, we may understand that female nature must be controlled, that it is a dangerous force that can inspire men to slave away and build the world and that it can also destroy that which he has built, but a lustful man cannot be made to see reason, and there are too many lustful men preventing change. I imagine there are other groups of male aliens going their own way on their planet as everything goes to shit around them, wondering if their situation is unique, but I take solace in knowing that nature is the force behind this collapse, and the corrupted men and women partaking in the downfall are merely the instruments.

The carnage that will ensue after the final levee breaks are products of prosperity. If there is to be a nuclear war, it would not be for its own sake, but rather the end result of what has been brewing for a long time.

Behind Enemy Lines


Photos and evidence obtained from ASU and NAU. 

One man can change the world and that same man is helpless against the mob. To be surrounded by an opposing force is to challenge a man’s character, for he must exercise restraint, vigilance and foresight to ensure his survival. An opposing force can take many forms, and each incarnation presents its own unique trials that can be navigated using the same core principles that ought to govern a man: patience, persistence and progress. The enemy we face today is both weaker and stronger than traditional enemies of the past. Weaker in that they are simple and childish, stronger in that they are numerous and have declared a discreet war, hidden from view of the layman, only to be revealed until it is already upon him.


The desire to inflict suffering without first experiencing suffering results in the most widespread and worst kind of suffering: meaningless suffering. The ironies that you and I have to endure as we watch these buffoons attempt to function despite their failings is a suffering of its own kind, but we must take their war seriously, as they know no other train of thought. If they cannot understand such basic hypocrisies, then we are truly dealing with another form of life entirely. If some among us have lost all forms of reason and logic, how then must we negotiate peace? Those who have truly suffered, on any plane of existence, know the price that suffering can have and would not wish it upon anyone unless it was the only option, otherwise they have fallen in to the abyss, never to return.

I seek peace and I seek prosperity, but I will not pose to be naive and think peace is possible for all and that any person is able to prosper. Those who do not seek peace and instead seek conflict to fill the void in themselves will never prevail because they can never know peace and must remain in conflict to find a purpose. Those who cannot prosper, or who choose not to, can not obtain any form of wealth because they would not know how best to spend it. Instead they seek to ensure others will not be able to spend their wealth. These are not people conducive to a successful society, and must be taken seriously lest they overtake all that allowed them to fester to begin with.


To live a life without criticism is to live without teachings. Without learning, there is no hope of change. This robs a person of their potential, but it also separates the wheat from the chaff. If someone lacked even the most basic curiosity to go outside of whatever boundaries that governed their life, they would never understand what it is to truly live and learn from mistakes and to experience the freedom and liberation from making independent decisions and self-governance. If this is true, then it can be said that these sheltered people have no hope or reason to change, and are markedly against freedom. Of course, anyone who has spent time around such people or watched from a safe distance can gather this.

This lack of a meaningful education, not in academics but in life, leads to real consequences. These “natural slaves” as Aristotle called them have no self control, self worth, ambition, or creativity. If they are not controlled, they will destroy, and if they destroy, they can never rebuild. It is then reasonable to suggest, and even merciful, that they should be governed by those with values that can lead to a functional society. This of course goes against the individualism that you and I cherish above all else and is one of the many ironies that are prevalent in our existence.


For all of the advancements that modern civilization has to offer, it seems we have lost the most basic principles of governance that so many of our ancestors understood. Putting aside the childish nature of women, our advancements have allowed us to verify the differences in female and male brains. With these differences considered, it is irresponsible to treat those differences as superficial, having no impact on how each gender interprets politics and society. Women’s suffrage did not account for the differences in genders, to the tragedy of men, women and children of today and tomorrow. Just like their anatomy, this war of women cannot stand the test of time, but the damage that will be inflicted before their defeat will cripple all in its path.

Women have chosen the worst kind of enemy. A man with nothing to lose can be the greatest force on Earth, yielding only when his body gives out. It is a basic principle of war that an attacker leaves an opportunity for the defender to flee, so that the defender is not forced to fight to the death. Women are obviously not experienced in the art of war, nor do they have access to the basic combative instincts that men share. This makes them the weakest enemy and the punchline in the greatest joke of western civilization.


The most dangerous enemy is the one who exploits the weak and the dumb to do their bidding. They don’t seek to help, they seek to exploit. They are creating lambs to be led to the slaughter for a cause they can’t fully comprehend. As many have come to realize, none of this would be possible without the men being complicit in the destruction of their society. The only way for these men to realize their mistakes is through suffering, and by the time the suffering spreads and reaches enough men, it may be too late.

If one were truly principled, you would not need to declare yourself to be, your actions will speak on your behalf. Seeking mentorship from a principled man is a noble endeavor, but as no one can put words over action, a potential student must be wary of those who wish to impart what to think, not how to think. These men realize that thuggery and decadence are not beneficial to society, yet tragically fail to examine how these problems arose to being with. Instead, they seek to set themselves apart from the herd of mediocrity in any they can, as long as that way can be achieved with a mediocre effort. The inability to face a problem and find a solution and follow it to its completion is their greatest weakness.

To turn men into gentlemen they must first know strength. To know only gentleness is to live to appease others. To lay claim to your desires is to exert strength of mind, body and soul. Only once you have done this may you know the limits of your strength in its current capacity and understand the value of gentleness when it is tempered with strength. How can a weak man, a gentle man, teach another to be of equal or greater principle, especially when it is proclaimed and not procured from life experience? The answer is that he cannot impart lasting lessons on to the other because he has not learned from them himself. The scholar is but a man lost in a dark cave, latching on to landmarks in the abyss as he longs for the light.


Assuming the worst intentions in others is not only a blatant form of projection, it is also a desire to find those worst intentions. There is a difference between preparing for the worst and hoping for the worst. Those who seek to impose their own worst features on to others are incapable of admitting the existence of said features. If basic differences between cultures and people cannot be acknowledged, there is no possibility for a debate of any kind. If the choice is to be called a racist, or whatever slur of the day, or to accept homogeneity, then the debate has ended and the lines have been drawn.


The sheer power of emotion over logic can destroy any institution. You and I may have learned to balance our feelings with our objectivity, but that concept has never even been introduced to them. The disrespect of culture, not of others but of their own, is on display for all to see. The slow decay of borders is leading to a shifting of the pieces that make up our known world. As an individual man we may be able to flee, but what happens when there is no where to go?


The destruction of tradition merely for the sake of it will be one of the most important lessons that future civilizations will take away from our downfall. It is not wrong to want to push boundaries and expand public discourse, but to lack the most basic respect for the fundamental traditions that hold a society together is not just foolish, it is traitorous. People today presume our age to be the most dignified, the most knowledgeable, the most advanced. I would argue the opposite, despite our technological advancements. The tools are available for a person to exceed all previous incarnations of humans, physically, mentally and spiritually. The amount of people who utilize those tools, however, are incredibly low. The peasants of history at least had a craft that they honed and perfected over the course of their lives, our peasants today offer nothing at all, only taking from those who produce.

When the bar has fallen as low as it can get, the free market should account for the decrease in quality. Unfortunately, the bar has fallen in all aspects of the free market, both the consumer and the product. If the teachers are no more intelligent and curious to truly learn than the students, then children begin to teach children. A teacher should know a craft beyond spouting curriculum, but our advancements in civilization have allowed for people to survive without obtaining any useful knowledge. Our strengths have now become our weaknesses, and only a return to form will correct these mistakes.

Understanding the Radical Left


Every generation is defined by its struggles. Whether the generation endures through war, economic depression, or fighting for human rights, hardship and the prevailing over it is what tests a people and their values. By examining the struggle of the millennial generation, or the lack of real threats, we can understand their position and seek to find common grounds with them, no matter how unlikely that may seem.

On Their Hostility

The parents of the radical left millennials protested the Vietnam War and lived through the Cold War, two serious and world-altering events. While I would never protest the military and treat the returning veterans in the manner they did, the protests against government intervention and the draft were valid and reasonable. It was a time of shifting values and of real change. Love, sex and drugs were freely given and shared and narcissism was the prescribed response to the overwhelming sense of shame and guilt that hampered this generation when they compared themselves to their parents, the greatest generation.

After the Vietnam war, their parents lived under the shadow of global nuclear war during the Cold War. Fearing each day may be their last, they lost faith and abandoned religion and adopted a nihilistic approach that was dictated by the failings of mankind, government and their neighbors. Most people today don’t realize how close the world was to being plunged into a nuclear winter, and this ignorance will lead to the next Cold War.

The grandparents of the radical left millennials endured World War II and the Korean War. This generation was comprised of masculine men and feminine women with established gender roles to better serve their society and contribute to the war effort. The sense of honor with the men was prevalent among the Americans, British, French, Germans, Italians, and Japanese, and drove the men who could not fight to suicide. The sense of duty with the women spurred them to take up the blue collar jobs that the men abandoned when they left to fight. This generation suffered through the Great Depression before this world war, starving and without hope. They left the frying pan and flung themselves into the fire because they had the strength to do so from the hardships they endured.

The current radical left has no such enemy to fight, no such cause to protest. The world is almost as close to nuclear war as it was at the height of the Cold War, but that is not what they protest. The lack of an enemy to fight causes them to create an enemy to fight. Their predecessors fought real racial segregation, they fought for women’s rights that they did not have at the time, they fought to close a gender wage gap that did exist at the time. Now, all of these problems have been solved, leaving an entire generation with no hardship to overcome and no meaning to identify with. They have no war to fight between nations, so instead they wage a war of ideology.

This sense of inferiority when compared to past generations will stain the new generation. Their hostility arises out of the need to have an enemy to fight and their radicalism stems from the lack of a self-identified enemy. We have seen first hand the insanity that can possess a person who has lived without struggle and yearns for a greater purpose.

On Their Weak Arguments

Past generations had strong leaders no matter what side of a conflict or protest they found themselves on. American men fought real fascism and communism to protect democracy and capitalism. They had clear evidence of why they needed to fight, and strapped their boots on and got to work.

Now, the arguments for the weakest generation is given to them by people with ulterior motives through the education system and the media. They cannot think for themselves and form their own arguments because there is no clear enemy, no right and wrong that everyone around them can easily see. The single greatest failing of the new generation is the complete ignorance of history. If they don’t know the basic history of communism, fascism and feminism, how can they form a coherent argument against it or for it?

The form of corporatism that dominates the United States has spread its veiled tentacles to every sector of public and private life. The monopolies control the textbook content and dispersal, the lobbyists prevent education reform, and the teachers that have no concept of history or geopolitics spread their ignorance to their students, stunting their growth.

It should be absolutely alarming with the fact that this is the most literate generation, yet the most uninformed. Corporatism, or the globalists, or the elites, have realized that controlling information is how they can retain power over the population. They have realized that they cannot defeat the powers of democracy and our representative republic through direct conflict, and have instead opted to destroy us from within through an unimaginable national debt, a divided people with no values and a propensity for obesity, and the destruction of the ideas that the United States was founded upon.

I do not believe that all of these radical leftists are truly aware of what they are doing. The term ‘useful idiots’ has never been more appropriate than in our current political climate.

On Finding Common Ground

While you should avoid identifying as a victim with every fiber of your being, let us take a moment to be sympathetic to the new generation and realize their struggles that they do not often realize. They have been born into broken families, and those that don’t come from divorced parents and broken households saw both parents working full-time jobs. They have been steered away from any form of religion and ridiculed by their peers and the media if they are a part of an organized religion. Their innate masculine and feminine values have been reversed, inverted and mutilated beyond recognition. They spend their entire formative years and early adult life in an education system that does not educate, but indoctrinates, leaving them with useless knowledge, thoughts that are not their own and tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt and their best years wasted. They have abandoned marriage and the family in fear of the divorce that their parents and peers experienced.

For any man or woman of worth, these are hardships to be overcome. Unfortunately, these hardships are not recognized by the common culture we share, leaving this weaker generation to fend for themselves as individuals rather than for a collective good. Any attack on free speech, as seen too often in their protests, must be met with quick and effective retaliation. On other issues, however, we must show compassion and sympathy for our fellow countrymen. We should strive to see them prosper and succeed, for a rising tide lifts all boats.

If we cannot find common ground with the radical left, we must try and create it. Shift the focus away from topics that have been debunked time and time again, like the gender wage gap or gay rights, for these battles have already been won. Shift the focus to rebuilding the family, restoring the birth rate, reducing national and individual debt, preparing for the coming war with China, disarming nuclear weapons, unleashing alternative energy, regulating artificial intelligence, and combating global governance. All of these are topics that are of such significance and affect everyone that they can make the weakest generation into the most important and pivotal generation that has the potential to decide the course of mankind. We live in a time of nearly unlimited potential for both good and evil, and I hope to adequately address all of these topics and more in due time.
