Sorry for the delay. A combination of work/ life demands and a feeling of loss at all the recent political happenings had impaired my progress on this person project.
Whether you are concerned about feminism, race, nationalism, family or just general moral decency, the last hundred years and specifically the last decade or two have been complete disasters.
Women have gone after careers for happiness only to find by their thirties that a family would have been more rewarding, almost all traditional homogeneous communities in the west are in danger of being lost in the near future, people have lost faith in nation that no longer belongs to them, divorce is on the rise while we make a mockery of marriage with gay marriage and even the pretense of a higher moral standing being what you should present in society has eroded away as our music, movies, television and books all embrace degenerate values and mock the traditional.
These are bad things, not just because I say so, but because they all have real life consequences. They and degeneracies like them lead to real world suffering and damage. I say degeneracies because we had a system of cultural values that protected us from bad choices like these but have since lost those protections. Out culture has degenerated into something less.
One key factor that has enabled the adoption of these lower or complete lack of standards is that our societies have put in place artificial protections not against the degenerate acts, but against their consequences. Like dam fighting against nature, these artificial protections will one day fail when either the dam is no longer maintained or the force of nature on the other side becomes too great to hold back. When that happens all down stream will be subject to horror and destruction.
A popular example of this is the removal of consequences for women who are unfaithful or destroy their marriages. In the natural state a woman was vulnerable and needed the protection of men, especially so if she was with child or already had children. In traditional society some of these threats to survival were lessened, but the social ostracism that would result could be almost as bad. For these reasons there was a great incentive on women to be faithful and to stay committed to a family if they had one. In our age when the social consequences have been deluded to almost nothing and the state will provide subsistence we see ever growing numbers of single mothers and hear more and more stories of unfaithful or promiscuous women. The threats to their well being for these bad choices has been removed. Combined with a culture that fills their heads with illusions that such a life could be good there is a recipe for long term human suffering and a new generation of traumatized kids.
One of the problems of living in a time of cultural break down is that you begin to take in the degenerate values yourself. Breathing it in daily, it is almost impossible for a youth to grow up with an accurate understanding of what a healthy civilization looks like. I was among those youths poisoned early on by false conceptions of how things worked.
My parents divorced when I was young, almost all my friends were from homes where the father was gone. We grew up on a steady diet of popular culture that made us believe that not only was it possible but it was expected as a natural part of life that we would have multiple intimate love affairs, engaging in premarital sex without shame. Even if our end goal was some fuzzy idea of a married life with kids, we still imagined spending our youth engaging in debauchery. And so we did.
One of the few natural dangers still putting some level of restraint on us was the threat of an STD or pregnancy. The current system of corruption had an answer for that. “Just use a condom and everything is a-okay.” That could not be farther from the truth. While reasonably effective against a variety of STDs, condoms don’t actually protect you from most, and while also reasonably effective against pregnancy their too is always a risk of failure. HPV, the virus that occasionally results in genital warts is now ubiquitous in large swaths of the sexually active population. It is believed to be one of the more common instigators of cervical cancer in woman. So much so that a partially effective vaccine against a few strains of HPV was being rigorously pushed by “public health” professionals with justification that it would reduce the likelihood of cervical cancer. This too was another push to remove a consequences of deviant behavior, or at least remove some of the fear of it though the threat was still real.
There were only two women in my life that I believe I could have been happily married to, and only one that I truly felt I should have. Needless to say neither of them were the woman I did marry. Instead I spent years with multiple girls in various dead end relationships or short term flings. I emotionally damaged many of them and the heart ache and guilt would leave me scarred. When fate finally caught up to me, and I was manipulated and forced into a marriage I knew couldn’t work, the only thing that made it even possible for me to keep going forward was the idea that if things didn’t work out, I could simply get a divorce. Even though I told myself that no matter what I was going to do everything I could to make the marriage work, as I put on that ring I thought to myself “I can get a divorce.”
That to me is perhaps the greatest failure of my life and a disgusting example of what this culture does to a young person’s understanding of the world. The idea that you can casually make those kind of decisions about something so sacred and important to the survival of the culture and your standing before God if you are a believer. It was only with age and more experience that I realized the horror and utter hopelessness of that situation.
However, the cultural marking of degeneracy on me was just one in a long road to where we are now. Where homosexuals can force you to call their pairings a marriage, just as good as any heterosexuals because they love each other just as much. Though the union can never naturally have children and will only serve to further distort the idea of marriage in the mind of the next generation of youths.
The debate over gay marriage was not about preservation of the society, about maintaining sacred boundaries inside the community, but was all about “love.” I’m sorry, but the hard fact of the matter is, that marriage isn’t about “love” at least not the kind of love most degenerates think about. Infatuation fades and romantic love can come and go, but the only “love” that really can be associated with marriage is the love that comes from building a family together over years and decades. Sweetheart does not equal my faithful wife, they are two different concepts with considerably different shelf lifes.
But oh well, it doesn’t matter that numerous states by popular vote tried to stop gay marriage. The pushers of our degeneracy one their battles through the courts and by pushing for judges who themselves are mockeries of the ideal of a judge.
As this push for expanding the boundaries of degeneracy, for creating our new normal takes place, so too does the attack on any natural consequences of bad choices.
Don’t want to be considered a slut? Don’t worry, slut-shaming is wrong.
Don’t want to dress respectably in public? Don’t worry, dress codes and judging other people are only for old racist white guys.
Don’t want to invest too heavily in raising your children? Don’t worry, the state will indoctrinate them for you.
Don’t want to deal with reality in healthy ways? Don’t worry, pot is going to be legal everywhere very soon and then you can just relax emotional stress away.
Don’t want to take charge of your life and be responsible for your failings while putting in the time and effort move up? Don’t worry, you are either a victim and its your fault, or you deserve whatever unhappiness you are in now.
If I had it my way, I would take away all social safety nets and activist groups and simply let the natural order of things take effect. How much more likely would a woman be careful about her partner if she had to fear raising a child on her own or being isolated from her in-group if she mixed with another race. How much more seriously would men and all parts of society treat marriage if they knew the wife had to be as fully invested and that the man alone would be responsible for their childrens’ survival. How much better would we carry ourselves in public if we knew not only that people could and would judge us, but that how they judged us could effect our very well being.
For now the system will keep holding back the natural consequences of so many of our bad choices, but like so many things that fight the natural order, it too will have to give way sometime. I just hope it does before there is no memory left in us of who we once were.
We are all degenerates now.
