One of our esteemed brothers sent me the trailer for it that I am embedding below.
I talk about ‘red-pills’ and becoming ‘red-pilled’ all the time on this site, and while I am talking about something different than the manosphere ‘red-pill’, there is certainly some overlap. Becoming conscious of the truth regarding modern Europe, and conscious of the causes and effects of the situation it finds itself in, entails (among other things) a full embracing of the issue of gender in the modern world, and the way in which Progressivism and Cultural-Marxism have poisoned gender relations, and used feminism to help destroy Western culture.
Thoughts On ‘The Red Pill’ And ‘Men’s Rights’
1. The feminism vs. Men’s Rights stuff seems to accurately reflect the ultimate destination that left-wing Progressive ‘Progress’ leads to, which is the complete atomization of society into smaller and smaller constituent chunks. The force of ‘progress’ turns every group against each other, as each is taught to think of themselves only in relation to their exploitation by other populations or demographics. Men and women even begin to oppose each other as groups. This was predicted in the book Adam’s Curse: A Future Without Men to some extent, and- like so much in liberalism- is a thoroughly distasteful notion.
2. In that regard these arguments and battles between feminists and men’s rights advocates equally summarize our transition to a ‘victimhood culture’. According to authors Bradley Campbell and Jason Manning, America and the West used to have an ‘honor culture’, then transitioned to a ‘dignity culture’, but now have evolved/devolved into a ‘victimhood culture’.
In such a culture, all parties and groups and individuals try to define themselves by their status as victims. Watching the trailer for ‘The Red Pill’ suggests this is certainly the case, as one sees the two sides debating and competing to see which one has it tougher in modern America.
3. While this is the case, I do think a fair analysis must accept that the men’s rights activists have good points. We all know that normal, masculine, heterosexual men are the enemy of liberalism and everything our cosmopolitan societies stand for. Young men are taught to act like girls, are taught that masculinity is ‘toxic’, and that strength is bad. Furthermore, many of the things noted in the film by the MRA’s are spot on, such as discrimination in divorce proceedings and child custody, globalists happily sending ‘blue collar’ (masculine) jobs overseas since they view masculinity as evil, the drugging of little boys with Adderal and Ritalin, etc.
4. Therefore I would say my verdict is this: I think its good for men to advocate politically on certain specific issues, such as father’s rights, the right’s of male children not to be drugged, etc, HOWEVER, I think these men would do better finding a more overarching movement to become a part of that would transform gender relations in such a regard not WITHIN the structure of modern society, but by destroying modernism and Cultural-Marxism and recasting our societies into something more noble and healthy.
What kind of movement might that be? I would say the same one all of us are basically involved in, which is what I would probably refer to as ‘Traditionalist Identitarianism’ but which is called any number of things by different people (Alt-Right, Far Right, etc, etc.)
Just what would that mean though? What sort of vision of gender roles is this new vast movement we are a part of communicating?
In short, what would gender roles and gender relations look like in a future post-reconquest Europe?
In a homogeneous, proud, traditionalist European country, gender roles would not merely ‘go back in time’, but would rather take the best aspects of historical (normal) gender roles, while at the same time infusing them with the sense of pride, history, perspective, and rebirth found in modern Identitarianism. I think the closest approximation I can find is something like the Mennonites in the United States.
In Mennonite families the women are very capable, and they may sometimes work in the family business, or work as a librarian or something when they are older, but for the most part their role is that of wife, and mother. They never gave into the societal brainwashing that says that the highest and best use for womanhood is to be a mid-level manager at a fortune 500 company, and that having a beautiful family and proudly exuding beauty and femininity means being ‘oppressed’.
In Mennonite families children are considered blessings, and they are not raised to be great children, but to grow up to become strong, masterful men who can raise a family, and feminine, capable women who can have children, create a real ‘home’, and provide warmth and love for their families to grow within. Mennonites are certainly not perfect, but they represent a continuation of our ancestor’s wisdom that has survived into modernity.
In future proud European homelands that have been cleansed of the evil of Cultural-Marxism, and saved from Islamization, these are the kinds of gender relations we will have. Our people will be pro-natal, traditionalist, and exultant in the beauty of complimentary gender roles (complimentary as in distinct).
Propagating such a strong, uncompromising vision is- ironically- going to persuade more women than politicking or engaging in protests. I have no criticism for the men in ‘The Red Pill’, I respect them for speaking some of these unpopular truths, but I think that feminism and Cultural-Marxism will ultimately defeated through strength, power, and aggressive masculine action. Its possible some of the MRA’s in the film echo this sentiment- I haven’t seen it- but the bottom line as I see it is this: In modern Europe and the modern West, action, violence, and an uncompromising vision of survival and vengeance will attract more female followers than any kind of ‘dialogue’.
Indeed, with the steadily increasing number of women showing attraction to Identitarianism and the Alt-Right (something I will write about soon), I’d say this fact is already clear. Now we just need to retake Europe. More on that after the referendum in Italy and the election in Austria.
Brothers: What think you? Are “Men’s Rights Advocates” doing a good thing? A bad thing? In between? What should gender relations look like in a post-Reconquest Europe?
