He’s begging you; don’t forget the beta bucks!

Yesterday Instapundit linked to a piece by Mark Judge titled
How Feminism Created the Manic Pixie Dream Boy.  Refreshingly, Judge isn’t jumping in with the standard Traditional Conservative complaint that weak men are screwing feminism up:

You can thank political correctness and feminism for this; both seek to tame male passion and aggression by declaring it brute and dangerous. These cultural forces are abetted by writers like Breslaw who insist that men should be more passive and feminine but then turn around and mock them as manic pixies when they do just that.

Feminists have long argued that women should pursue careers just like men do.  Now that many women have successfully done so, however, they are beginning to resent the fact that while they are toiling away at the office, there are free-spirited dudes watching Bravo TV while eating artisanal snacks back at their apartments.

The lure to blame weak men for the failures of feminism is enormous, so seeing writers resist this temptation is a very positive sign.  However, even better than the post itself is the comment left by Eric Johnson, at least when it comes to comedic value (intentional or otherwise):

Women! Stop this delusion and marry the The Dork!
The Dork will actually put up with your mother!
The Dork will go to the PTA Meetings!
The Dork is willing to put up with your bullshit!

Don’t worry dorks of the world, sooner or later your future wife will tire of having sex with men like the Manic Pixie Dream Boy and will suddenly realize that you have a duty to marry her.  There is no point in trying to rush the process, as she needs to tire of sex with other men before she can recognize that you need to support her and put up with her bullshit.  Have patience dorks, assured in the knowledge that while she is giving herself sexually to every man who draws her fancy, she is saving something special for you.

    She’s got something even more special than before now that the clap is resistant to antibiotics. Burnin’ love indeed.

  4. I would argue that too many dorks got married. they married and didn’t know what to do with wives and daughters. So in short I’m back to blaming week men who didn’t know not to feed the hypergamy after midnight, nor to expose it to water…

    Baby boom, free-love, sixties, boomer feminists…..here we are.

  5. I’m currently trying to figure out how to get a Traditional Conservative to understand RP concepts. One of my best friends whom I’ve known for almost 20 years is someone who believes it’s always a man’s fault if his wife cheats, and he also thinks it doesn’t mean anything if a woman’s had sex before marriage. He and I are the only ones in that group of friends who isn’t married, and I’d like to help him understand certain truths before he finally does get married, but he’s the kind of person to whom you can’t tell anything.

  6. American says:

    Though history clearly shows reality can be a cruel teacher, your friend will be schooled by reality nonetheless.

    I knew someone like that Hank. He eeks his life away in rented room in someone else’s house, year after year, working full time to keep his ex-wife and their two adolescents (who have been trained by the ex to despise him) in the home they bought but which she now owns and the car he bought but which she now drives (when her boyfriend who sleeps in the bed he bought banging his ex) isn’t driving it around town blasting the stereo that is.

    Some people have to learn the hard way and reality is just the teacher to instruct them.

  7. That’s the kind of dork I’m talking about.

  8. That is if you won’t acknowledge hypergamy how in the world will you ever keep it in check? First in the home, but then your community and nation?

  9. Looking Glass says:

    @Hank:

    If Christian, pop out a Bible and read Genesis 1-5. Then point out “he’s not listening to God”.

    If not Christian, press the hard logic: if Men are responsible, then why should Women be able to Vote? Hammer home the logical fallacy: either Women are responsible for themselves or they should be treated as second-class Citizens. There is no other options.

  10. I’m so glad that women are free to pursue that career! I hope they are so successful, no man will ever be good enough.

    Hank Flanders:

    There is no way to win over a white knight without emasculating him. Which is what you must do.

    I, personally, have strong-armed my entire family with red pill. They cannot escape it. Slowly, they have relented to acknowledging the truths that red pill knowledge gives. Truth always wins, but it must be presented relentlessly.

    Also, you need to use rhetoric to beat his opinions. When he says it is always a man’s fault if the wife cheats, then say “then I guess it’s God’s fault when men choose idols”. If God loved me enough, I would not stray. It is God’s poor headship that causes idolatrous behavior.

    The other thing you have to do is punch straight through the pussy pedestal. Laugh at him and tell him about all the young women who read articles about how to give bl0wj0bs. Tell him about all the women have divorced good men so they can fornicate freely. Tell him his ideas were once true, and that the facts have changed and he has not.

    Give no room to listen to his rebuttals. “Sorry, you’re wrong”. Nope. You’re wrong. Wrong again. Call him BetaBoy, and laugh. Use feminist shaming tactics, which are a proven method with betatwatboys.

    Offer to help sharpen his sword and ask him how often he polishes his armor. And then ask him why, when there are so many good men, the women choose a-holes over and over. Of their own free will.

    Above all, disqualify his views immediately. Put him on the defensive. Make him the explainer. Reject, and disqualify everything he says that is blue pill, and paint him into a corner.

    Masculine aggression is the only tool that works. You will not reason him into the truth, only defeat can do that. If he still rejects, just laugh and show him that his side is losing control of the narrative. “Hey man, live in the past if you must, but every day my side gains converts. From your side. Don’t be the old crank who hangs on to the past. Even then, old cranks are useful to show others how outmoded their thinking is.”

    You have to play hardball. Use takeaway, and reframing. And just like a real alpha, assume the sale. “I can see you are almost getting it. You’re so close”.

    I loooooveee railroading stubborn betas. I just keep saying red pill truth and they get madder and madder. I “impugn” the honor of modern winnenz and watch him try to white knight. I laugh.

    Trolling betas is funner than slut shaming, so make a game of it!

  12. Bob says:

    I have to disagree with jack’s advice: “Give no room to listen to his rebuttals. … Masculine aggression is the only tool that works. You will not reason him into the truth… ”

    If someone can’t use reason to explain their argument, instead only using intimidation, and refusing to even respond or counter an opposing argument you can safely dismiss their point. Anyone whose point is correct won’t have to resort to these tactics to put it forth.

    ““Hey man, live in the past if you must, but every day my side gains converts. From your side. Don’t be the old crank who hangs on to the past. Even then, old cranks are useful to show others how outmoded their thinking is”
    This is another logical fallacy – appeal to popularity. This is commonly used against most of Dalrock’s material “You guys just want women chained to the kitchen, these aren’t the 1950s gender roles anymore!” but I’m sure you can see why logically it doesn’t hold water. If we are to hold what is popular is right then there is no counter argument against homosexuality: “Stop being so close-minded like people in the past! Our world is way more progressive now! Love is love between any 2 consenting adults! Don’t be the old crank that thinks marriage should only be between 1 man and 1 woman!”

  13. jack says:

    Mr. Beta is not holding his present position due to logic. All blue pill is emotionally arrived at and ego-held. Logic does not undo these. Using logic will fail.

    As a person with substantial experience converting blue pillers, I can tell you my methods work. What needs to be attacked is the person’s sense of self assuredness about his blue pill position. The sad reality is that when a person attempts to use logic, you automatically place yourself in the “pleading to be heard” paradigm. People respond to strength. People respond to assumed authority.

    So how well did your logical appeals against same sex marriage do in the recent cultural battle. Yep – checkmate, brutha…

    In our culture, people are conditioned to respond to authority and cultural momentum first. If you want to whine and beg and make appeals to “logic” (which they will reject out-of-hand), please, be my guest. I’ll watch you run yourself ragged.

    Go find a modern day communist who still thinks it is the best system. Show him thousands of data points that show that communism fails. He will be as stubborn as ever.

    Logic is only for people who are interested in truth. Mr. Blue Pill beta is not. Yet.

  14. jack says:

    “. Anyone whose point is correct won’t have to resort to these tactics to put it forth.”

    Yeah, no. Go watch the most persuasive people in the world and you will see that they don’t use methods anything like this. I used to think logic would always win, back when I was young and watched too much Star Trek. Humans hate logic. Because it takes their ideological toys away from them.

    Now, you can go ahead and try to be “noble” and use only the purest of debate methods, and I will watch you lose every time. Do you want to prevail, or do you want to stick to your hidebound blue pill notions of “proper methods”.

    We have gone too far down the slippery slope of leftism and lies to insist on playing entirely by prep-school rules. Especially when the enemy is using guerrilla warfare. Yeah, I know you want to be “honorable”, insofar as you perceive honor to be defined.

    Churchill realized that toward the end of WWII.

    Easiest way to never lose an argument again: figure out the stupid assumption someone is making, then roast them over the fire of Logic & Shame with it. No one is ever ready for it.

    This must be restricted to certain types of individuals; I find your assertions incorrect in connection with myself. Many times, “Mr. Beta” is holding his present position due to the only “logic” he knows, as this “logic” was all he was allowed to know, and questioning the “logic” meant immediate correction now, with promises of Divine correction later.

    With regards to the “RP”, it was the answer I had been looking for, yet did not know existed; therefore did not seek to find, as I did not know there was even something to search for.

    I came across the Manosphere by accident, and took in the *logic* of the blogs I was reading without hesitation. There was no self-imposed resistance to the information I was presented with.

    You will find that blue-pill is not “ego held”, in many cases, in fact quite the opposite. Read “The Lost Boys”, by Illimitable Men. I wonder how many now-RP men, including (former) Christians had violent backgrounds which reduced any ego we would have had to zero.

    If you reserve your condemnations/judgment/name-calling for those who resist, I can see the ‘tough-love’ logical reason for doing so. In my case though, your tactics would not have been necessary.

    Some men respond quickly, some eventually, most not at all.

  23. On unplugging SoCons from the matrix:

    It is truly dirty work but the best argument for married guys is simply to ask him if having sex twice a month is good or if he would prefer my 3-4 times a week. For unmarried guys who have not been broken forget it. They will give you one NAWALT and raise you a “Men do that too” every chance they get and they will be completely self righteous about it. I wouldn’t even try.

    @Gemini: “You will find that blue-pill is not “ego held”

    Your example is an amazing example of solipsism. Better check your gender identify because I would flag you as a suspected fem troll. We are not talking about you! Sure, there are exceptions but MOST Blue Pill guys hold onto their blue pill ideology as a pure ego investment. They have been taught that not placing women on a pedestal means you hate women. They have been taught to worship at the alter of the golden uterus and worship the most coveted vaginal orifice as pure ego investment so that any threat to the blue pill lie is met with resistance. They will see anything less than acknowledging the sacred feminine as an immoral affront to their reality. We use the Matrix and “Unplugging” analogy for a reason.

    “Sure, there are exceptions but MOST Blue Pill guys hold onto their blue pill ideology as a pure ego investment.”

    There is always a broad spectrum of buy-in to dominant paradigms, with different rationales across that spectrum.

    My guess is that the blue-pill strategy is already well past its peak, so there will naturally be many men open to alternatives, and fewer all the time convinced that it gives them an edge. Those whose identity/ego is centered on their relationship to women, whatever the pill color, have problems that go beyond being slow on the uptake re: the latest social trends.

  30. jack says:

    To whomever said it;

    Yeah, of course it is not needed to deliver the hard stuff to people who are open to logic.
    But for most, blue pill is ego held, since all it takes is a pair of eyeballs to see blue pill is false.

    Admittedly it’s a column by a marginal pundit on a marginal news site, but I think it perfectly illustrates how the media is prone to create a supposedly huge social ill out of thin air and then spin it as a result of male dysfunction. We’ll surely see more of this in the future, and such complaints will undoubtedly grow more shrill and delusional.

    This guy is a pal of Roosh, which probably surprises no one. His argument, if we can call it that, which is that millennial men are having less sex, starting fewer businesses and see their marriages get ruined solely because they are addicted to online porn, is not a bit more surprising either. I’m not even sure how to call this attitude. A reverse cargo cult, perhaps? Pundits like him actually believe that almost all social problems would magically solve themselves if only “addictive” online porn ceased to exist. The idea that maybe women also affect the mating market with their own behavior is not even mentioned.

    He specifically shames his producer, a 23-year-old beta virgin, for not making efforts to form a sexual relationship with a porn actress. I’m not even making this up. Read the article.

  36. Dave says:

    I am inclined to say that in spite of being accused to be disrespectful to women, Trump will handily win the women’s votes, not necessarily by pandering to them, but by being the most Alpha in the pack. In this case, an Alpha with the bucks. Because of his smart deal making experience also, he will win the Hispanic votes as well. If Trump wins the Republican nomination, he will very likely be the next POTUS. I expect that, with his nomination win, he will be “trained” to be a bit more polished, less juvenile and more presidential by the Republican apparatus, and he will therefore appeal to a broader audience.

  38. Lee should be laughed out of court. The papers she signed before having her eggs frozen guaranteed the embryos would be destroyed upon divorce. She has no case but will probably win due to being a woman. Such is life.

    My favourite tidbit in the article.

    Findley’s lawyers have blamed Lee for her predicament. They argued in court papers that she sacrificed motherhood for the sake of her career and had four abortions before she married Findley. They also have challenged her credibility.

  39. Doom Arigato Mr Roboto

    He’s already RP, Hank, more than you. Women don’t cheat on alphas. So become the alpha.

    Try maintaining Alpha when you get cancer, have a motorcycle accident, lose your job, your business goes under, etc. I’m sure some may claim you can maintain Alpha in spite of adversity, and I certainly agree that how a man handles himself in a crisis is going to test how much of a man he is, but there are still circumstances beyond our control.

    A friend of mine who was in the Air Force once told me about how common it is for guys’ wives and girlfriends to cheat on them when those men deploy. Going off to war is supposed to be extremely Alpha, but going off to war (i.e. being Alpha) doesn’t stop men from being cheated on. In fact, it just makes it more likely.

    Sometimes women just get…I think the polite term is “lonely.” Whether or not they act on that loneliness is going to depend on factors besides just the Alphaness of their husbands.

    a girl who was the product of an Asian Tiger Mom (I am not against race mixing but to ignore that the Asian American and Anglo subcultures have significant differences is naive)

    I worked with an Air Force nurse who said they saw a lot of STDs on guys coming home, pretty much sounded like everyone was whoring around everywhere.

  46. STD’s on guys coming home? Married guys? Seems like you left out some vital information in your second hand anecdote. (Although, I would be inclined to believe it. Especially of high-T alphas deployed for chunks of time.)

  47. Dave says:

    “I worked with an Air Force nurse who said they saw a lot of STDs on guys coming home, pretty much sounded like everyone was whoring around everywhere.”

    I once had a chat with a Catholic MD who was in the military. She said pretty much what is written above: everybody gets it on with everybody among the soldiers, including the married ones. No shame at all. She felt disgusted.

  48. So when soldier boy comes home does he bring another woman’s kid with him, kick the divorced wife out of the house and force her to pay for him? Seems equal to me…

  49. theasdgamer says:

    “I worked with an Air Force nurse who said they saw a lot of STDs on guys coming home, pretty much sounded like everyone was whoring around everywhere.”

    No STDs on women soldiers? STDs are far more prevalent among women than among men.

    This sort of thing sounds like white-knighting by omission and shaming.

  50. Dave says:

    “No STDs on women soldiers? STDs are far more prevalent among women than among men.”

    STDs may not be symptomatic or only vaguely symptomatic among women. That is why women often end up with chronic PIDs and infertilities, because they often carry untreated STDs.

    theasegamer:

    “Which concepts are easiest to accept?”

    I’ve always found “Family Law” as a good starting point, because almost every man (or teen male) by now, knows someone in his family or close circle who has been caught up in the fraud that child support and alimony are.

    Always distribute red pill advice, particularly in FRONT of women, to any guy, that indeed “you, you! can and will lose your children, home, retirement and income if she decides she wants a divorce…don’t let them kid you that it’s “only half” or “what’s fair”…

    For men to STALL or FAIL TO ACT, by getting married, is in itself, an easy leverage point…you aren’t asking them (or telling them) to DO something, you are telling them to simply sit back and NOT do something, and to research other failed men who tried it before and got smoked.

    EVERYTHING in this system is based upon Dalrock’s threatpoint, and when you remove the ability to do that, or the incentive, as much as you can as a man–you win.

  52. Dave says:

    But why can’t men fight back? I mean, seriously, why not?
    If men–even a small group of men–took it up as a political issue, the same way that weed smoking and homosexual marriage were, it will gain traction, because no politician can look at the current family laws in public and not flinch.

    Men don’t have to start big; they can begin with a few basic issues:
    1. Mandatory default 50-50 joint custody of kids in the event of a divorce
    2. No mandated child support payments: each parent support the kids financially when they have the kids. Or a bank account be opened in the kids’ names and each parent pays into it.
    3. Abolition of all types of alimonies

    Let the politicians be put on the spot in their respective town hall meetings, so they can publicly pledge to pursue those reforms once elected. Norquist did something similar with the federal tax.
    Good thing is, this is an election period; it could be a great opportunity to start dismantling feminism’s refuge of lies.

    Dave: Men don’t have to start big; they can begin with a few basic issues:
    1. Mandatory default 50-50 joint custody of kids in the event of a divorce

    Were anyone to suggest this, the media overflow with cherry-picked horror stores about evil ex-husbands who abandoned their kids, abused their kids, didn’t want their kids. “Hey, joint custody would be great if men even wanted their own kids! Trouble is, men don’t even want to visit their own kids!

    I remember a radio PSA about a child asking when she could see her father. The mother woefully promised, soon, soon! The message was that the divorced deadbeat dad didn’t care about his own kid. The PSA was about shaming deadbeat dads who refuse to see their own kids.

    TV movies and talk shows already paint the norm as “men don’t want their own kids,” that men refuse to visit their kids, that men have run off with a young hussy after abandoning faithful, hard-working, older wives.

    The Deadbeat Dad is a TV staple. As is the Strong, Smart, Independent, Hard-Working, Single Mom.

    Dalrock, I really enjoyed this one..I went to the NYmag article and left a comment that will surely ruffle a few feathers..here is what I left..yall enjoy

    “This statement “In your early 20s, they’re the opposite of the boring lawyer you “should” be dating.” is incredibly offensive to men with a work ethic and would have happily dated and built a life with women in their early twenties. Instead these “boring guys”, who actually contribute to society are supposed to be there to pick up the pieces and start a “mature relationship”
    with you after you’ve wasted all of your youth and beauty on these idiots. The problem feminism faces is that your alienation of these “boring professional men” is starting to backfire. First, men want physical intimacy with women..men aren’t stupid..we adapt..the more we see physical intimacy being freely given to these manic pixie boys, the larger in number these manic pixie boys will continue to grow. Second, as you mature and have finished “finding yourselves in your twenties” with these so called pixie boys..real men with work ethics and good jobs “boring lawyers, doctors, engineers” will refuse to “man up” and marry/start a mature life with you simply because we don’t feel like playing second best to the manic pixie boys. We have run the gauntlet of building careers and working hard in our twenties without the love and support of women while we do it. So when you all start looking for a “real man” in your very late twenties to early thirties you will start to wonder why all the “boring” non pixie men your age that you turned down, friendzoned, etc, will not “man up” now that you are finally ready and gotten all the pixie boys out of your system. You see, us boring men who stayed in good shape and have a successful career in our early thirties will now just go and date younger women in the 23-26 range that aren’t jaded with so many ghosts of pixie boyfriends past and settle down with them. This is the cold reality for so many women who decide to pass over all the “boring guys” for pixie boys in your early to mid twenties. This comment will surely start a fire storm, but it is the cold hard truth.”

    Fuck mandatory default 50-50 custody it is default DNA tested fathers custody period. Also any social changes in the law cannot be seen or viewed as fairness or redress of any kind. Those changes need to be seen as a way for relief for the “suffering” of women. Anything less is dead in the water. Abortion is legal never forget it. Women do nothing for kindness or benefit for any body but themselves. The wicked selfish clock can be on time when the selfish desire is to be seen as kind and the only way to achieve it is to do a kind act. If you want to change law, game women or survive a marriage, raise a daughter you better understand that.
    BTW I’m not talking about bad women I’m talking about normal women. Normal women that want to be seen as Christian or at least modern and enlightened. Even the so called conservative women with traditional values that is just who they are.
    Begging for mercy and fairness from a women is irresponsible and stupid.

    That worked well enough in the past, when people could just disappear and never be found again. We can do better today, though. How about erasing the concept of divorce, at least when young kids are in the picture. “Divorce? What do you mean? What’s that? You want to leave your husband? Where would you go? You can’t get far…”

    No, you can’t leave your spouse if you have kids at home. If you want to throw a fit about it, society will throw you in jail until you calm down. How’s that? Your parents and inlaws can be embarrassed of you, and you’ll be demoted at your job when you get out.

    The standards of decent behavior have slipped so far that this probably sounds extreme, but I think it’d work well, and really, it’s all about the children. Don’t any of you people care about the children? It’s what’s best for the children, so we can’t do otherwise. There, that’s settled.

    Who needs women to sign on? Anyway, I hear that much more restrictive attitudes are the case in the Philippine Islands and a few other places (Chile?).

    I’m not advocating anything as extreme as the Philippine model, anyway. Childless people who both agree ought to be able to split, and divorce ought to be mandatory/automatic with a long prison sentence (say, 5 years) — demonstrating that marriage is for responsible grownups, and not irresponsible losers.

    I think we ought to practice saying “no” to the frivolous requests (by people with young kids especially) that are currently clogging up our welfare rolls and our courthouses just on principle.

    For a drill on what we know of female nature maybe we can advance the discussion of ideas to what can be done to change this society.

    I’ve heard too many people praise “no-fault” divorce, because it supposedly allowed *women* to get out of bad marriages.

    The thing is, “faulted divorce” allowed the exact same thing, but it was changed anyways; some of the answer is there.

    Giving out red pills to married men is from my perspective, as a single man, better left to married men who have red pill truth. I try to share a few red pills but I tread carefully now having had numerous bad experiences. Blue pillers do in most cases have their egos tangled up in the value their roles in the female imperative bestow on them. Disposable appliances do after all have some value, at least for awhile. Honestly I take satisfaction in seeing the truly egotistical and especially the arrogant blue pill men having their asses nailed to the barn door by the ex wife and her shyster lawyer. But the poor fools who don’t know any better and won’t hear better either, eeh gags..

    The guys who might hear an obviously sarcastic “she needs to tire of sex with other men before she can recognize that you need to support her and put up with her bullshit.” And then think “yeah, thats right!” and then see opportunity for themselves to clean up the mess. Sad, sickening but some of these these hapless fools won’t even learn the hard way. Just let them crash and burn, over and over. Save your breath, shake your head, walk away.

    Two factors are needed. 1) Someone with money to grease the wheels within a State Government. (Just accept everyone is corrupt, but they’re pretty cheap.) 2) One really bad case where a High-Earner Woman gets taken to the cleaners in court.

    You really need all of 1 case to tie it to, then what you push is really, really easy. When a Woman makes more than the Man, then it’s obviously a violation of the 13th Amendment. (“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”) The angle writes itself, “How can you possibly believe in Equality if you support the slavery of Women.” (Most Progressives wouldn’t know what would hit them with that attack.)

    The switch isn’t in the divorce laws. It’s in replacing them with “estate” contracts. Or whatever you want to call them. It would take some legitimately solid legal planning, but that’s the entire vector of attack. Alabama actually floated the idea of contracts just a few months ago, so it’s not even that new.

  72. greyghost says:

  73. Looking Glass says:

    @GeminiXcX:

    From what I know of the period when “His Fault” divorce went through (which took most of the Western World by storm), you have to be mindful of the Elite/Non-Elite split. To those that operated at the top end of the Society, marriage was always a contract, divorce was always something that was prepared for as a down-side risk potential and they always had the money to get divorced. Thus the Elites simply couldn’t see the value of very limited Divorce, as they were always susceptible to it, whereas those not in the “1%” really didn’t have the option.

    It’s a bit like abortion. It has been, for the last 150 years, the arena of rich White Women. Making it legal across the country allowed the murder of more Blacks than Whites in the womb. Those that follow their emotions are churned under and destroyed in a society that willingly sells them their own death.

  74. Looking Glass says:

    One other bit about any Divorce/Marriage law reform: it came up during the early stages of the Gay Marriage push that, in effect, the country can only have 1 form of Marriage law. So a single State can, by proxy, enforce its views on Marriage on the rest. (This is also going to be the game for Polygamy.) But it works both ways.

  75. Dave says:

    Fuck mandatory default 50-50 custody it is default DNA tested fathers custody period.

    That would be a mistake. You don’t have to ask for everything that you want at once. Start small; then build momentum. Mandatory default 50-50 custody sounds “fair” and “innocent enough”, and is much less likely to garner too much opposition.

    The standards of decent behavior have slipped so far that this probably sounds extreme, but I think it’d work well, and really, it’s all about the children. Don’t any of you people care about the children? It’s what’s best for the children, so we can’t do otherwise. There, that’s settled.

    Settled? Methinks it is far from settled. You know exactly what will happen? Studies will be published that show that “The kids of divorce are just as great as kids in intact families”. Or, better still, “Kids of divorce fare better”. Or even better: “studies” will show that kids are actually harmed when an otherwise “bad” marriage is maintained because of them. Remember “The kids are alright” study that came out to push homosexual marriage and adoption? Look, we have liars at the helm of affairs. What do you expect. Every fabric of feminism is built on lies and exaggeration.

    What you are proposing won’t happen, as the Western nations are determined to destroy the family unit. And the powers behind them are entities that no earthly force can stand up against.

    Agreed that feminism is, fist of all, a spiritual force, and it needs a counter-spiritual foce to stop or reverse it. Even if a war were to occur, without a corrective spiritual force in operation, feminism will only hide until things settle down for a while before coming out again. By that time, those who experienced the evils of the movement would have died off.

    Do you actually interact with average men? If you’re an average man yourself, most of them behave like scumbags towards you whenever they believe that throwing you under the bus will make them more acceptable in women’s eyes. They’re just trash. It’s in their genes to see you as a rival to be stomped upon in order to pander to women. Hell, I wouldn’t lift a finger to save any of these fuckers from anything, much less form some political action group with them.

    Alright, I’m pretty sure you know many average guys, and some of those have girlfriends. Do you remember the time when they entered relationships? Did their behavior change? Of course it did, didn’t it? They instantly turned into pussy-whipped losers that act like scumbags towards single men. They brag about fucking those frumpy, nasty broads that decided to put up with them, as if that was some fantastic turn of events. And they’ll call you a pathetic loser if you aren’t doing the same. Those broads controls their lives from then on, and they’ll push them to severely limit or completely cut contact with their bros.

    This is the reality on the ground. If you’re a Red Pill beta, the majority of women and men will treat you as an enemy or a nuisance, and there’s no advantage for you to be gained by interacting with them.

    If one acts as the Bible instructs us, then you have no need to “fight” because you will remain in honour.

    Hosea 4:”6My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.”

    You really believe that? So are you trying to suggest that Christians should not fight back against injustices? Maybe no need for Christian lawyers? Or political movements? Public officials too, eh? Of course, we all want to “remain in honor”. And once this is done, everything will just become hunky-dory. What an interesting thought!
    I bet Jesus was kidding His disciples when He told them:

    “… now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.” Luke 22:36.

    Saying Christians shouldn’t get involved in certain aspects of civil resistance is utterly foolish, and unsupported in Scripture. Jesus said not to defend yourself if you are being persecuted FOR HIS SAKE, not if your civil rights are being trampled under foot by some barbarians.
    I don’t know from which part of the world you are writing from, but you may need to pause for a moment and say “Thank you for the Crusaders”, because, without their sacrifices, you’d probably be saying “Alahu Akbar” right now.

    In spite of the above stinking decay, you’d be surprised that there are many people who are tired of it all, and want something different—like the strict standard of Scriptural holiness and chastity. Women inclusive. Of course, those women will readily pass for “reformed sluts”, a well deserved description, though it does not tell the whole story.

  90. My idea for fair default custody is simple:

    Per the tender years doctrine, custody is presumed with the women with children ages 0-9.

    Custody shall be presumed with the man with children ages 10-18.

    What could be more fair and reasonable than that? All the women cashing out for prizes when the kids are 3-4 years old would have to think, wait, you mean I only get child support for 4-5 years and after that I have to pay support? Maybe we can work on this marriage after all?

Even in Nigeria and presumably much the rest of Africa, the story is the same. The women would still expect the man to take care of her though (“As long as he takes care of me and the kids, I am OK with him having other women”).

    While this comment thread is alive I am going to propose a root cause analysis of the marriage market problem as we do in Medicine. This is more like a blog post, so I apologize for its length. Also, feel free to repost it as you wish.

    The unraveling of the normal social order that sustained and nourished western civilization is being caused by a combination of two factors. The first point being the greatest, the second being a minor but important contributor (although the cause of the second point is a result of the creation and social acceptance of the first).

    1. All forms of birth control – (the pill, condoms, abortion, IUD’s, etc) in a sense any form of birth control beside the withdrawal method (male is in complete control of this one) is the greatest social experiment ever performed in the history of mankind. I could write and entire thesis on this, but I will try to unravel it in a few key points.

    – The alpha fux/beta bucks paradigm could not exist without birth control. I will catch heat for this because yes some men are cuckold (but definitely not an overwhelming majority in the grand scheme of things), but this is an evolutionary adaption and the manosphere isn’t going to somehow change the female Id. The larger point is young women want to have sex just like men do..however, in this brave new world the risk of pregnancy and stigma of unwanted pregnancies has been removed allowing the female Id (“you go girl”) to run wild with little input from the inherent forces of the superego (this guy is Hawt and all “tingle”, but if he knocks me up I could be screwed..ie shamed by family and tribe, no resources for me and my child in the early stages, death from starvation in a long cold winter). In the latter situation the female hypergamy we are all so disturbed by has a serious check and balance mechanism that has been lost with the widespread availability of birth control and the sexual revolution. In a world without female birth control assortative pairing among young people occurs as it should..there can be no female “finding yourself” years..female hormones function normally..there superego functions properly and even though the beta may not generate the same “tingles” she is a whole lot more likely to pair up with one when she is young and fertile with a low N count and also to demand commitment before sex.

    – Another medical point I don’t normally see brought up is the false sense of pregnancy oral contraceptives cause in the female brain. This is a powerful force that leads to all kinds of female behavioral aberrations, which the psychology community and medical community are largely ignoring. (perhaps OCPs even causing women to behave in a more masculine way) A comparison is men taking anabolic steroids to gain muscle..the behavioral consequences of this are well documented. Both OCP’s and anabolic steroids are both steroids that can and do alter normal mating behavioral patterns in humans. Its just that according to the mainstream, the OCP’s can “never” cause any harm to the females psyche and women as an entire group, because it allows for our current cultural obsession with “feminist female empowerment” and cannot be questioned to any degree (more “you go girl” mentality).

    – I will catch heat for this as well, but I believe in concept of monogamous pair bonding and emotional love. There is nothing that instills more passion and a burning desire to succeed in a man than the promise of female intimacy and offspring from women in exchange for providing for them. I will be called “beta” for this, but in an evolutionary sense this is how inter-sexual relations evolved between the sexes. In a world without birth control most people end up mated at a young age when the bonds formed are the strongest (before high N counts for BOTH sexes). It is in the best interest of humanity for these bonded individuals to remain together to ensure offspring success, thus the evolution of a cross cultural marriage concept. Couples can and do fall in and out of love..but what kept the system functioning properly was the strict rigidity society put on not breaking this commitment. Hence, why most couples that stick out a troubling time of there marriage and remain together generally end up happy with each other again as time passes. Without female birth control this brave new world of the “you go girl” attitude could never have evolved and divorce culture would have failed to ever flourish.

    2. The second minor point is the social acceptance and government assistance of single motherhood..however, as I noted above this social acceptance and single motherhood problem would have never flourished without widespread female contraception availability, so it is really a symptom of the root cause.

    In closing, I don’t really know how this social experiment will pan out..but female contraception is, in my opinion, the root cause of all the current inter sexual problems. Without it none of these current social problems would even exist. Whether you believe in Religious teachings or Darwin’s origin of species, human female contraception is in a sense “Playing God” and will eventual lead humanity down a very destructive path. Until this root cause is recognized by the mainstream (which is a pipe dream) no amount of social interventions in the cultures embracing it can stop the destruction of stable family units within there societies.

    @ Hells Hound

    If you’re an average man yourself, most of them behave like scumbags towards you whenever they believe that throwing you under the bus will make them more acceptable in women’s eyes.

    It’s no secret that some of the most brutal enforcers of FI are married dudes, particularly those with daughters. Part of this is because men with families instinctively view single men as a turf threat, likely due biological hardwiring based on the realities of pre-civilized times (roaming single men were frequently quite dangerous).

    Another piece of this is ego-investment; a man that is already paying the FI “tax” doesn’t tend to look fondly on those he considers to be FI “cheats”. In the case of fathers with daughters, we already know how they frequently collude with feminists to warp the entire SMP in their daughters’ favor at the expense of single men.

    The one group that consistently has ZERO use for FI is single men. If support for FI could be measured on a spectrum, the group consistently scoring the lowest without fail would be single men, perhaps followed only by fathers with only sons. Unsurprisingly, these are also the groups most likely to lean libertarian, perhaps because they instinctively understand that most government re-distribution and laws will always be against them.

  104. PuffyJacket says:

    @ Dr. Skin

    You have the importance of (1) and (2) in exactly the wrong order.

    The AF-BB paradigm existed way, way before the advent of birth control, as evidenced by the relatively small % of men that were able to pass on their genes as compared to women.

    Single motherhood exploded because family law was restructured (child support and custody, no-fault divorce, etc) to shift the costs of women’s immoral behavior onto men. Birth control was a contributor, but not the main cause of this phenomenon.

    If a single law could be reversed to land the most devastating blow to feminism possible, easily that law would have to be child support, followed by no-fault divorce with cash and prizes.

  105. DrSkin says:

    @ Puffyjackey

    I’m sorry but this alpha fux/beta bucks paradigm is overblown..especially in the people of european ancestry. Follow the link for a better explanation.

    http://evoandproud.blogspot.com/2010/04/puzzle-of-european-hair-and-eye-color.html

    In most other cultures, I will admit polygamy was more widespread and it was rough being a beta. However, this idea that hunter gatherer tribes we evolved from had ~1/20 males sleeping with 20 women while the other 19 men got nothing seems like a stretch. We are not a wolf pack, if beta men had no sexual access then there genes wouldn’t have kept on being passed down and humans would just be a bunch of CADS that possess the dark triad. This is clearly is not the case.

  106. PuffyJacket says:

    @ Dr Skin

    *Studies of our gene pool reveal only 40% of men were able to pass on their genes, which means that 60% had no mating prospects at all. This is by no means “overblown”. Even a distribution along this line has massive implications on the SMP.

    With traditional constraints removed, mating patterns have returned back to pre-civilized norms, which explains the vast majority of the problems we encounter today.

    *I don’t have the link in front of me, but you can google it rather easily

  107. greyghost says:

    Don’t forget DR Skin we have civil society. Left alone 1/.20 males do fuck 20 women with 19 men jacking off in the corner after a days work keeping the lights on. Women were always as we see them today what is different is society has incorporated their way into the law, culture and church.
    As you can see it was not always like that

    DrSkin, it’s trolling to show up, change the topic and tell us everything we’ve worked out over many years is wrong and there’s a simple solution to it all. We already have a Messiah, thank you.

  109. PuffyJacket says:

    Also anchoring things on the 1:20 ratio is a bit ridiculous. The standard operating assumption in the Manosphere is that 20% of men sleep with 80% of the women, which would imply a 1:4 ratio.

    Whether the ratio is in fact 1:4 or 1:2 isn’t relevant. What’s important is the principle that women do revert to this behavior when the traditional constraints of civilization have been removed.

  110. DrSkin says:

    I am not refuting that alpha fux/beta bux exists, I just don’t think it is as successful of mating strategy as the manosphere makes it out to be particulary in harsh climates. I agree that is something at the core of the female Id that makes men uncomfortable. I agree civilized society has figured out how to reign this in with religion, culture norms, etc. All I’m saying is female birth control unleashes the beast within so to speak. And I’m not some troll trying to become the new messiah..but look at the start of all this madness..I don’t think it’s coincidence it coincides with freely available hormonal contraception for all western women on demand for no reason.

  111. Looking Glass says:

    The studies on the College Scene SMP put it at 15% of Men got 60% of the Women. (Or 8% got 45% of the Women) If I’m remembering those numbers right. But don’t think 1 in 20 lasts very long. Islam exists because limiting the powerful Men to 4 wives was a brilliant selling point in Dark Ages Arabia. (Which really was elites fighting elites, but that’s another topic)

    I think it’s good to keep in mind a point about true anarchy: it lasts only for a few days. Once the “old order” is destroyed, a “new order” will be established with Force very quickly. It’s really a matter of who establishes and what they believe.

    Dr Skin are you playing dumb. It is not a good mating strategy but is a female tendancy the comes from unrestrained hypergamy. It is the toasted ice women love and crave.

A society where female behavior expressed with complete wicked selfishness is externally seen as kind and virtuous regardless of the motivation.

    @looking Glass

    Don’t confuse “success” with “sin-fueled natural desire”. What Women are doing is absolutely nothing new. It’s just not been generally viable before this time period.

    I have a theory. Since it is generally agreed that wealth and comfort soften people, especially men, it stands to reason that the wealthier a society becomes, the more indulgent it becomes, and the less it is able to fight for its ideals. The forces of good (Patriarchy) and evil (Feminism) have always been at loggerheads. But throughout history, the former has always kept the latter down, for societal good. With unprecedented wealth however, men became too weak and too unconcerned to keep the evil forces at bay, and that was how the evil forces arose, and began to eat away at every pillar of society. The destruction can only be stopped when the whole structure comes crashing down, and a massive reset takes place. Unfortunately, the people who will experience the upheaval will soon die off, leaving the new generation of men to go through the same cycle all over again.
    This happened in Chaldees during the time of Abraham. The country was so bad God had to tell Abraham to migrate to a foreign country before He could do anything with him.
    It also happened several years later in Sodom and Gomorrah, but those folks were not so lucky.
    It happened in Rome. Everybody knew the outcome
    And at various times during the dark ages.
    And it is happening now. The speed of moral deterioration of America in the last 15 years is astounding, and most likely has a spiritual aspect to it. Atheism, devil worship, promiscuous sex, homosexuality, and feminism all seem to envelope the country from all angles and there is no breathing space. Could anyone have predicted during the Clinton years that, within a mere 14 years, American citizens would be jailed or bankrupted for not supporting homosexual marriages in their businesses or offices? Or that mainstream media would shamelessly tout the “benefits of weed” to the American public?

  115. jeff says:

    greyghost,

    I agree. If you have fallen men and fallen women and the spectrum that puts them on. As they come to the center to become one flesh is as God intended. When women are allowed to, and encouraged to go towards the end of their respective spectrum you have what we are getting.

    What we RP (once BP) men know is that men can and do for the most part stay closer to the center of that spectrum (it’s pure BS to imply men don’t, I’m talking about hard working, productive and Godly men). The reason why christian men live with their wives with understanding is because wives are the weaker vessel and will tend to move toward their end of the spectrum. As men and as christian men with authority and leadership we can and should lead them back toward the center of the spectrum toward God and in turn toward us (their husband). What FI and the government and churchianity has done is tied men’s hands behind their back. They have taken the individual man’s leadership/authority away from him and let women run wild and toward their respective spectrum end.

    We get told that men and women are pretty much the same, however I’m not even stretching the truth when I say most men can and do use logic and reason and therefore even the most beta of men are able to lead an un-hypergamous woman. In the modern setting we have, we were brainwashed to think women (our wives in the church world) can lead us in a right direction and are more spiritual etc. Once you realize it’s a sham, all of a sudden you realize what your wife/mom/daughter/church are doing and you go through stages of RP.

    Just as men are stronger physically, we are stronger emotionally, and we can lead spiritually from that strength if we are given our authority back by our wives submitting. Churches and pastors do not give this support and many men do not how to jump out of hamster wheel.

    King Solomon wrote there is nothing new under the sun and I truly believe that is true in the spiritual sense, however we see what modern medicine and psychology has done with modern government and it is 10 fold worse. I believe it will swing back when every thing collapses.

    I think it is rather apparent that feminism is far more concerned with humiliating men and stripping them of even modest degrees of power and prestige than it ever has been with delivering unto women the conditions of their own happiness. This is done, paradoxically, by convincing women that not being a man is itself a humiliation. Women toil in the vain attempt to be men, and realizing they can never be, demand that men not be either.

  120. @Dr. Skin: This is a good hypothesis but BC Pills are clearly not the only thing that happened in the 1960’s. The REAL root cause of all of this is Feminism and the fact that Beta men let them get away with each step. Now the Betas are rushing into the abyss at breakneck speed.

    Remember the old poem: For want of a nail…

    Because of the Bitches and Betas, suffrage was granted,

    because of the suffragettes, equality was granted,

    because of equality no fault divorce was granted,

    because of no fault divorce, cash and prizes were granted,

    because of cash and prizes, marriage was destroyed,

    because marriage was destroyed, the culture was destroyed.

    So a culture was lost- all for want of good women and alphas.

  121. DrSkin says:

    I am not playing dumb per se..I will agree that hypergamy unchained is the not most becoming trait of our female counterparts. However, without female contraception as a viable option these pillars of civilization that have been constructed to combat it for the good of women and men would not be crumbling at the rate we are seeing without it. It is really astonishing how fast things can unravel when you mess with mother nature this way.

    I in no way disagree that 80% of women would like to sleep with the top 20% of men. However, this is not a sustainable option for them in the long run. This behavior had to be checked..especially in the harsh climates of Europe. Even if all women could cuckold her primary mate with alpha seed (which does happen but usually about 1 per 10 children from women in monogamous relationships), usually that is only one child..women would typically have several in her fertile years environmental conditions permitting. So that still leaves offspring for her beta provider. This is why these beta genes have not died out. However, the feral female desire for alpha is an uncomfortable truth the red pill exposes.

    I will strongly agree with another posters comments. If men started behaving like actual men again and stopped supplicating to women as the current social environment advocates even beta men can inspire respect and dare I say generate tingles in a woman.

    I will state it again..western civilization was functioning properly with stable families until the 1960’s with the rise of feminism, sexual revolution, and widespread access/acceptance of female contraception. Take away the risk of unwanted pregnancies by any means necessary and female hypergamy is completely unchained which has grave consequences for men and women. Abortion, IUDs, OCP’s, Morning after pills, RU-486, even condoms in a biblical sense are the devils tools to rot a civilization from within. Promiscuity, a loss of morality, and a Sodom and Gomorrah type of society is sure to follow. The fact that women support and also often terminate unwanted pregnancies says a lot about their feral nature which in my opinion is much more unsettling than the alpha fux/beta bux paradigm. Unfortunately, when women are left to behave however they wish without checks from men and Religious tenants we are left with the current state of affairs and its very messy indeed.

    I agree wholeheartedly that child support, no fault divorce, welfare, single mom glorification, and welfare are horrendous for society and allow for female hypergamy to run wild. It is feminism that lead to these principles and they are atrocious. However, it is my opinion this movement could not have gained traction without female contraception. You take away the risk of unwanted pregnancies by any mean necessary, the worst being abortion (hamster rationalized murder) and females are then allowed to create there own utopia because the balance of mother nature has been disrupted. Men went along with it because we thought with our little heads and said to ourselves..wow this is great I can have all this sex now and don’t have to worry about kids. Now we reap what we sow. The balance of power was handed over to women and civilizations with women in charge don’t last long.

  127. DrSkin says:

    @greyghost and @Tom C

    I am not sure the consequences of male contraception. The balance of power could be shifted back to men, but it still will not fix the problem with feminism. Feminism is a cancer that has spread throughout our society in the west and I am worried we have reached a point of no return. The fact that men are mobilizing and trying to get out the message to the younger generations is promising. In all honesty, the manosphere needs to focus its energy on young women and men. We need to mobilize the women who support us and get those women to expose to the younger generations of women how feminism and its tenants are a shame and will lead them into a life of unhappy childless spinsterhood. My generation is what I would refer to as a lost generation. I only hope that through all we have worked out in the manosphere the younger generation can be helped before it is to late for them as well.

  129. PuffyJacket says:

    @Dr Skin

    Why start your analysis in the 1960s? A “root cause” analysis would reveal the true source of feminism is female suffrage, because women overwhelmingly vote to skew the SMP in predictable ways. Child support, no-fault divorce, subsidization of single motherhood, abortion, etc. are all the inevitable result of female voting patterns over time. How feminist a given country is depends entirely on how far that country is into the process.

    Birth control is a red herring for a few reasons:

    1) The rate at which women divorce or raise children out of wedlock depends almost entirely on whether the laws of that country impoverish the mother as a result of divorce or enriches her, not on the rate of birth control usage.

    2) Several countries have roughly similar access to birth control as in the US, but nowhere near the same degree of feminism (Eastern Europe, parts of Asia and South America).

    3) Key changes in Family Law also occurred around the time birth control appeared on the scene, hence the emphasis on birth control to the exclusion of everything else is inappropriate.

  130. Looking Glass says:

    The Japanese birthrate plummeted years before hormonal birth control was allowed in Japan. (Which I believe was actually only in 2000.)

    And the thug-spawn problem isn’t new in the least. Read up on what the Protestant Reformers were up to in Switzerland in the 1500s. It’s a bad idea to think that most of previous Western History was much more “moral” than our time period. They just had a significantly lower opportunity to flex their immorality. (There’s also that little issue of God wiping out 1/3rd of them via the Plagues. We like to forget that.) [Though they didn’t start killing their own people, or children, with industrial efficiency until beyond 1880.]

    The USA’s problem is down to the laws and that our lower classes aren’t homogeneous with the upper classes. It’s one thing for those lacking self-control to spiral into self-destruction. It’s utterly something else to subsidize it. But it buys votes for Democrats, so they’ll keep doing it.

    It’s also probably a good idea to keep in mind two other details. 1) Europe spent the better part of 300 years shipping out all of their “undesirables” to other parts of the world. Or killing them off in wars. 2) The USA’s experience was at such a lower population density that quite a lot of human stupidity simply got you killed in the wilderness & no one cared. The larger the cities, the more room for the consequences of the immorality being pushed onto others.

    Isn’t it more logical to blame the ready availability of abortions for this than contraception? At least, contraception still has “failure rates”, and even with the most touted contraceptive pill, a typical woman would still approach irresponsible sex with some trepidation. Abortion is the nuclear option—the 100% effective alternative—that took all consequences of thoughtless and meaningless sex away from women.

  134. Dave says:

    So please describe your beef with Jesus, His Church, and His Church’s current successor of Peter, Vicar of Christ.

    I have no beef with Jesus and I have written in the forum countless times that indeed God forgives the repentant sinner. Fornication, abortion and many other sins that we traditionally so designate are not unpardonable. One of the most damning sins which many folks in this forum are guilty of, is the sin of hypocrisy. They make it look like the sins of men are not as consequential as the sins of women, especially sexual sins. They forgot that hypocrisy is just as damning as fornication.

    That said, I do not accept the claim that the pope is a successor of Apostle Peter. The man (Pope Francis—and pretty much all other popes in history) is an unregenerated religious leader who does not even begin to understand the first elements of salvation. He needs to repent and get born again, or he will spend his eternity where all sinners go. The Pope certainly has no power to forgive anyone’s sins, as he is a sinner himself and in need of forgiveness. He is actually an impostor who deceives everyone who follows him.
    Apostle Peter has no successor, so let’s not create one for him.

    Did you not advocate fighting as a means to get what you want? How come you capitulate so easily when merely questioned? Is it not the correct way of doing things? Have you perhaps run out of steam? Arguing and fighting does take a lot out of a man.

    Matthew 11: 25At that time Jesus said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. 26″Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight. 27″All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. 28″Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29″Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. 30″For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

    Outward acts evince the inward purpose and it seems your stomach for your purpose is fickle at best. Dave you might want the yoke of men on you, I prefer to learn from Jesus and carry His easy yoke and light burden. Like I said, unfortunately Christians put their trust and faith in politicians and not in God to give them what they need.

    Now seeing as there is no disputing against a man denying principles [even if those principles are God given Scriptural ones] it would seem my business here is done. Unless of course you still think that arguing will get you anywhere constructive?

    @greyghost
    Your silence on my questions to you is interesting. So did you actually see Dave’s red herring in my September 22, 2015 at 4:52 am post to him? There is a difference between fighting and using force. Because it is lawful to repel force by force, provided it be done with the moderation of blameless defence, not for revenge, but to ward off injury. My discussion with him had nothing to do with the use of force, it was with regard to his use of fighting in politics as a means to an end. Resisting fighting does not nullify the use of force.

    Where does God promise to “make it better”? We can stand on God doing it if we have a firm promise of such, but otherwise we have to go out and work “among men” as you deride.

    How did you earn your money last week? Did you sit at home waiting for God to supply it? Did you use your own effort to do something useful and get paid for it? (Many choose a third route of mooching off others by taking money forcibly taken from others for support, but that falls back to using men.)

    We have to work with men in this world, so your charges are without merit. You can only stand in faith and receive from God what He has promised. I do not see the ones that apply in this situation, but perhaps you can enlighten us.

    Please don’t bring the RCC arguments up. Many here do not buy the basic arguments claiming the RCC as the One True Church. I was raised RCC, but saw too much divergence from the Scriptures to stay. Sola Scriptura (did I spell that right?) would be more applicable. That said, this is not the place to argue RCC vs. Protestantism.

    @Dave
    Did you not advocate fighting as a means to get what you want? How come you capitulate so easily when merely questioned? Is it not the correct way of doing things? Have you perhaps run out of steam? Arguing and fighting does take a lot out of a man.

    Is it ever OK for a Christian to join the military, or fight for his country?

  141. Dave says:

    @no9,

    Like I said, unfortunately Christians put their trust and faith in politicians and not in God to give them what they need.

    Looks like you got it backwards. Standing for your civil rights, as a Christian, is not contrary to Scriptures at all, and neither does it mean you are not trusting God. One of the most fundamental misunderstandings among Christians is this belief that they are not to play any active roles in the running of the world in which they live. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    Kind of reminds me of a conversation I had with a Christian brother many years ago. He had invited me to his church, and during a light conversation, he wanted to know what I was studying in school. I told him I was in medical school, studying to become a doctor. Noticing a sign of disapproval on his face, I asked him if it was wrong for a Christian to study medicine? He hemmed and hummed, and in effect said Christians should believe in “Divine healing”, and therefore might not need to become doctors.
    Really? I’m glad I did not try to “remain in honor”, and listen to his faulty reasoning. I cannot count how many lives I have saved over the last 25 years I have been in practice.

    Fast forward a few decades. I was dating this young woman a few years ago. The very day I met her parents, I learned that her mother had been diagnosed with colon cancer……a year earlier…and she had not gone to see the doctor…yet. She was trying out some “holistic diet” to beat her cancer, and “trusting God to take her home some time”. I went ballistic. By the time I finished with her, she was on her way to the oncologist. Unfortunately, the cancer had spread by that time, and she died a year or so later.

    I wish I could shout this from the mountaintop: Christians are to be actively involved in the running of their countries. let them get into politics, education, business and banking. let them be police officers and pilots and everything else under the sun. Shying away from political offices is a humongous mistake that will slow down the progress of God’s works, and make the lives of the Christians much more difficult.
    Imagine if we had had a few godly judges, congressmen and governors. Do you think our country will continue to make ungodly and life ruining laws as they do now? Will our kids be sacrificed en masse the way they are now through thoughtless and needless abortions? Will our law courts be as corrupt as they are at present?

    And how about a godly president? Obama is doing everything possible to stamp homosexuality on the face of America wherever he goes. The man seems to have lost every sense of shame he does not even realize that small, third world countries in Africa no longer respect him when he pushed his disgusting and repulsive homosexuality on them. He was rebuffed in Kenya. He went to Senegal and repeated the same nonsense and he got rebuffed. Still he had not learned his lessons. When Nigeria’s leader visited here, he pushed for his perverted sense of “equality” of homosexuals once more, before that one told him in no uncertain terms that he won’t get anywhere with his perversion. He recently appointed a homosexual to head the army.
    Now, imagine that Obama were a godly man. Do you think our country would have been better respected than it is now? Righteousness exalts a nation. Sin is a reproach to any people, no matter how many nuclear warheads they have or how big their annual budget is.

    Where does God promise to “make it better”?
    Where did I use the word promise?

    “We can stand on God doing it if we have a firm promise of such, but otherwise we have to go out and work “among men” as you deride.”
    Where did I deride? On the contrary I am highlighting what the Bible shows on how to better work with other men in honour (aka Brotherly love). Did I not quote Luke 12:57“And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right? 58As you go with your accuser before the magistrate, make an effort to settle with him on the way, lest he drag you to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the officer, and the officer put you in prison. 59I tell you, you will never get out until you have paid the very last penny.” We are instructed to settle things with our brother not fight them.

    “How did you earn your money last week? Did you sit at home waiting for God to supply it? Did you use your own effort to do something useful and get paid for it? (Many choose a third route of mooching off others by taking money forcibly taken from others for support, but that falls back to using men.)”
    What does this have to do with the points I raised regarding Dave’s political views and list of political demands?

    “We have to work with men in this world, so your charges are without merit. You can only stand in faith and receive from God what He has promised. I do not see the ones that apply in this situation, but perhaps you can enlighten us.”
    You seem to have misunderstood what I was conveying. Where did I say that one should not work to bring about changes? My view was with regard to how Dave goes about doing his.

    “Please don’t bring the RCC arguments up. Many here do not buy the basic arguments claiming the RCC as the One True Church. I was raised RCC, but saw too much divergence from the Scriptures to stay. Sola Scriptura (did I spell that right?) would be more applicable. That said, this is not the place to argue RCC vs. Protestantism.”

    I am not a Roman Catholic. So it seems that when you read my points you did so from an incorrect point of view to begin with. And I have been advocating Sola Scriptura this whole time. Why the others are “fighting” me on the points of honour and dishonour is because they think I am talking about some or other code of Chivalry and not its actual meaning within the context of the discussion. Their pride is blinding them to God’s truth.

    @greyghost

    What happened to that bravado you showed when you disagreed with my points? Now you just wait for others to type what you want to say and second their opinions of mine points.

    @Dave
    Why are you still arguing Dave. You already admitted to putting your trust and faith in men/women and not in God to give you what you need. “Legality is not reality” [maxim of law]. And as politicians can do noting more than make legislation, that can only make things legally binding, means that it is not reality to begin with. Seems you are claiming and advocating fiction as reality. So am I under any obligation to entertain your delusions?

    I have read the scriptures cover to cover many times, and find no support in the NT that would indicate a “yes” answer.

    Although, the Catholic and Protestant denominations would apparently disagree with me, as they have even mass-murdered *members of their own faith* on the opposing lines. So do “Christians” send members of their own faith to heaven or hell prematurely, after they slaughter them?

    John 18:36
    1 John 4:21

    Also, did not Jesus say he would return a second time, executing judgment with the armies of heaven behind him? “Let your kingdom come” — What do you think you’re actually praying for? (Questions addressed generally; not at a specific individual).

    n09, you need to format your posts better. It is really hard to tell the points others made and your own words.

    We have to fight with our own resources for many things, including politics. A fair bit of the modern problems are because Christian men either sat back and didn’t fight or they got swayed by those pushing a very heretical message.

    You are the one who claims that Peter was the Vicar of Christ when nothing in the Scriptures state that. Note the difference between what Jesus called Peter (little rock) and what He said He would build His Church on (big rock). Saying that is the revealed knowledge of Jesus Christ is much more accurate than claiming some apostolic succession that is not noted anyplace else.

    Do you like flip-flopping a lot? Are you a fish?

    Dave,

    We are very similar to Ancient Israel (the northern kingdom) now. We have a great outward prosperity, with huge amounts of sin and idolatry. We are likely headed for a judgement similar to what they faced, even though it will clearly differ in some way.

    Sowing to the wind eventually brings the whirlwind! I pray I find a safe place to stand from the latter when it hits. Many do not realize how bad that will be, as they are drunk with worldly success. Even those like n09 are colored by the very things they decry, or don’t decry as the case may be. Some of them are like the old profit in Israel who intentionally misled the prophet God sent from the southern kingdom. He wanted fellowship so much he was willing to lie about hearing from God and caused the other prophet to get killed later heading home since he disobeyed God’s commands to not tarry in the northern kingdom.

    We must focus on what is right and only that. Stop shooting at allies and aim at those who are the enemy.

    Greyghost,

    We agree on more than may always be evident, as we have both noted before.

So before they start going on about murder and getting all involved in a very personal life choice then I suggest they start with those babies who are born in an environment where they’re not wanted! Also it’s all good and well saying get birth control but we are all human and we are entitled to make mistakes and unfortunately for the woman we can’t solve that problem so easily! Who ever thinks it’s an easy decision is on crack! It’s a horrible miserable experience which women deal with in different ways – abortion is a necessary procedure.

    Proverbs 24:1-7 (ESV)

    1 Be not envious of evil men,
    nor desire to be with them,
    2 for their hearts devise violence,
    and their lips talk of trouble.
    3 By wisdom a house is built,
    and by understanding it is established;
    4 by knowledge the rooms are filled
    with all precious and pleasant riches.
    5 A wise man is full of strength,
    and a man of knowledge enhances his might,
    6 for by wise guidance you can wage your war,
    and in abundance of counselors there is victory.
    7 Wisdom is too high for a fool;

    in the gate he does not open his mouth.

    To save a long discussion, Imperialism in the name of Christ is out. But War is a tool of the Lord, and Christians will be called to fight. There’s a reason the Law includes commands for killing evildoers, as evil begets more evil. And the only way to deal with a lot of it is to kill it. That most definitely hasn’t changed. (And Revelation quite clears points out that is how it will be dealt with at the end of Times.)

  154. Dave says:

    Is it ever OK for a Christian to join the military, or fight for his country?

    I have read the scriptures cover to cover many times, and find no support in the NT that would indicate a “yes” answer.

    Actually, there is a lot of indirect support for it in the NT.
    Neither Jesus nor the Apostles advised any of the soldiers who converted to Christianity to abandon their profession as soldiers. Neither preached against soldiering. Even John the Baptist who directly addressed soldiers only told them to be good, righteous soldiers, not to abandon their profession. The OT is full of several examples of godly soldiers (Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Caleb, David, etc readily come to mind).

    John the Baptist did not preach against soldiering:
    Some soldiers were questioning him, saying, “And what about us, what shall we do?” And he said to them, “Do not take money from anyone by force, or accuse anyone falsely, and be content with your wages.” Luke 3:14

    Jesus never preached against it either:
    But the centurion said, “Lord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9″For I also am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.” 10Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled and said to those who were following, “Truly I say to you, I have not found such great faith with anyone in Israel
    Matthew 8:8-10

    The Apostles never denounced being a soldier.
    I have read through the NT countless times and I never came across even a hint of disapproval of soldiering from the Apostolic writings.

    Common sense dictates that Christians can be soldiers, and they should be.
    Imagine a highly successful Christian ministry which has preached to, and converted most of the citizens of the country. How will such a country defend itself against aggressors if Christians cannot be soldiers? Why, ISIS will have their heads for lunch, rape their women and forcefully convert the rest to Islam.

    Yeah, I understand that NT Scripture never directly said to become a soldier—same way it never say directly to worship on Sundays, or to have only one wife (except those aspiring to be church leaders). But we can easily know where it stands on the issue.

    True… however, when a claim is made and you go silent it means you consents to the terms. I asked him the same question 2 before times. I only made my claim the 3rd time. He tried to act in dishonour (going silent) because he thought incorrectly that it is the correct way to handle his affairs.

    “I notice this isn’t the first time you attempted this tactic in this thread.”
    Only attempted? The problem is you don’t see what it is that was done for them. I love my brothers in Christ and feel the pain and the frustration they are going through. However I cannot give them something that is between God and them as well as what He has already given them. All I can do is try and show them that their game is rigged and requires them to argue/fight and be silent to function and that they cannot win. God in is His wisdom and grace has given them the remedy but they don’t want it. And until they truly believe in what was given they will remain stuck in the situation they find themselves in.

    I have worked for the State Attorney and have been in cases from the lowest to the highest court. I know what the game is and it’s rigged. Even when you think you win you still loose.
    However seems that what I have to offer regarding legal and lawful advice is of no use here so to prevent dishonour for all involved I will take my leave. All the best to you all.

    Secular government has God-given duties that require the use of deadly force. This is God’s will per Romans. Gov’t often assumes duties that God didn’t give it and that’s a problem, but not one that makes soldiering a crime against God.

    “As for the point I addressed about even same-denomination “Christians” murdering each other through secular militaries, it’s interesting how the ‘pro-soldier’ crowd was strangely silent.”

    The fratricidal periods of Christian history were not motivated by religious doctrine. The wars following the Reformation were a corrupt Vatican’s desperate attempt at maintaining an unBiblical monopoly on salvation, said monopoly being partly why the Reformation happened in the first place. More recently, the Troubles in Ireland were religious only in the sense that Cat vs. Prot helped distinguish the two sides of a political conflict.

    We are all brothers in Christ. It’s explicit in the Bible. Therefore, whenever you see Christians killing each other it’s a safe bet there’s more going on than you see.

    “Even if all women could cuckold her primary mate with alpha seed (which does happen but usually about 1 per 10 children from women in monogamous relationships)”,

    How do you know “1 per 10” to be true? What evidence do you have for that?

    The rate of cuckoldry in the U.S. is actually considerably higher than 10%.

    From https://web.archive.org/web/20050203215419/http://nomarriage.com/paternity_test.shtml

    From the Dallas Morning News 1999-10-31: “DNA Diagnostics Center … an industry leader, says 30 percent of the men it tests prove to be misidentified. Similar numbers come from the Texas attorney general’s office, which enforces child support: About a quarter of the men who disputed paternity in the last year turned out to be right. In Florida, the proportion was one-third”.

    From the Sunday Times 2000-01-23: “David Hartshorne, spokesman for Cellmark, said that in about one case in seven, the presumed father turns out to be the wrong man”.

    From the Santa Barbara News-Press 2000-02-27: “For the population as a whole, “The generic number used by us is 10 percent,” said Dr. Bradley Popovich, vice president of the American College of Medical Genetics. [15 to 25 % has been determined from blood tests of parents and offspring in Canada and the US.]”

    From the American Association of Blood Banks – 2001-02-26: “The overall exclusion rate for 1999 was 28.2% for accredited labs. Exclusion rates for non-accredited US and foreign labs were slightly less at 22.7% and 20.6% respectively”.
