The past is like one long metal album.
The past is like one long metal album.
I wrote about reproaches to men but women were also asked to be mindful that the conditions of youth aren’t the only beauty and you need character, like men do too.
Literally the only good part of this book.
I don’t like it when SJWs lie about sexuality and pretend men could be the biggest sluts they wanted, forever, without consequence.
I don’t like it when men lie about their historic sexual habits either. There’s no excuse.
I was going to quote but screencaps deter liars. This was the common opinion and backed by the doctors of the time. They just can’t stand the idea their ancestors would be ashamed of them and think of them as just as slutty as the women they insult.
I guess their red pill got stuck?
Continence (sexual control) and sexual hygiene were the rule throughout history, we hear about exceptions because they were exceptions.
(And rich, usually rich and insane, it’s still fun to read about those).
Act like a savage, think like one. Pretty straightforward. Lust isn’t a virtue for men either. Giving in to any desire is a huge display of weakness.
The energy is meant to go to your development. Wasting it elsewhere stunts growth permanently. Degenerate is quite a physical phenomena. If you took identical twins, one would be taller, better-looking and healthier for abstaining compared to a profligate twin.
It does stunt the growth, they’re right. Neuroscience is finding (supernormal) stimulation is really, really bad for you, especially if you’re still developing – the development time is cut prematurely short because the energy gets burnt up. You have a finite supply. Puberty is meant to take many years. Telling men to masturbate, that it’s good for them, might be the first nail in the masculine coffin (same applies for women).
A retardation of your mature sex’s qualities. It’s horrendous.
The best-looking and sounding men I’ve ever seen simply had no desire to masturbate as teenagers (they were busy doing other things). They turned out really well, the so-called “late bloomer” just used to be… normal. By comparison, we all know plenty of people who peaked physically age fifteen then weirdly aged at speed.
Guess what they have in common.
It’s also no coincidence the best geniuses are virgins.
To this day, the life outcomes of those with impulse control are superior, including general health.
Suck on that.
If you want a biological mechanism for this, look into how caloric restriction works. Your body has finite life processing power. Don’t waste it.
Most self-help books for men came in the form of morality lessons.
Because they needed it.
No man is beyond reproach.
I haven’t posted anything helpful like this in a while.
Anything else you want me to look for?
“And now, they find their Day is over! their power gone! and the throne of this nation possessed by a Royal, English, true, and ever constant member of, and friend to, the Church of England! Now, they find that they are in danger of the Church of England’s just resentments! Now, they cry out, “Peace!” “Union!” “Forbearance!” and “Charity!”: as if the Church had not too long harboured her enemies under her wing! and nourished the viperous blood, till they hiss and fly in the face of the Mother that cherished them!”
No Gentlemen, the Time of Mercy is past, your Day of Grace is over, you should have practised Peace, and Moderation, and Charity, if you expected any yourselves.
British Literature 1640-1789: An Anthology, pp. 370.
I meditate on this whenever an enemy of progress gets too big for their boots and feigns umbrage, especially the Muslims. Especially the Muslims.
The author in particular is Defoe.
It has never been a virtue.
It has never been Christian.
It is trumpeted as a false form of charity. Charity, the virtue, doesn’t deprive.
Dear friends, we must keep in mind that tolerance is not a Christian virtue. We have heard this before. It actually is a pagan one. (Believe it or not, it was actually Ghandi, not Christ, who coined some form of the phrase, “hate the sin, not the sinner.”) Indeed, the idea of tolerance is an ancient pagan idea, in fact, it is at least as ancient as Jezebel herself. To the point, though, consider a moment how tolerance brought into Israel by Jezebel backfired. Consider how dangerous tolerance is. In other words, at first Jezebel’s pagan practices were permitted. Then they were accepted. And then anyone who dared challenge her pagan practices was killed. Tragically, this is how false doctrine and pagan practices work. Indeed, error typically emerges into the church and a culture in three stages.
They never ask you to tolerate goodness.
It is always the same.
Tolerate vice. Tolerate sin. Tolerate evil.
Why? Evildoers would rather continue unopposed.
If you want to play the scientism quote game, fine.
As the great Edmund Burke once said, for evil to succeed, it is only necessary for good men to do nothing.
Note: NOT Einstein.
Cowardice is frequently admonished in the Bible, along with the blasphemy of denial and other forms of ignorance, from the same root as to ignore.
To turn a blind eye.
To permit and allow without sanction.
Chaos. To allow pride. To fall from the grace of righteousness and moral probity, standards.
The answer, because tolerance is the opposite of repentance.
Simpletons: There is no evildoer, there is only evil.
There is no murderer, there is only murder.
There is no rape gang, there is only rape.
There is no noun, only verb.
There is no human, there is only being.
Actually, shit, let me put that on a t-shirt.
Words are only as meaningful as the actions to back them up.
If you compare someone to Hitler on Twitter, and you say you’d go back in time to kill Hitler (presumably before he did the job himself), how are you going to act on that?
This would silence the SJWs over night.
This would silence all the cowards who social signal (including some supposed redpills) in lieu of doing something. Who finger point and blame game. “It’s your fault my life sucks, I’m a victim, but you can’t hit me because… I’m a victim!” If they want to be a victim, I am happy to provide that service. They forget the true meaning of the word.
If you had to defend and guard honour like that, imagine how quickly the r-types would skedaddle.
After all, isn’t the very concept of being ‘offended’ and indeed, ‘offensive‘, directly tied to honour culture? If you choose to be offensive, you choose to defend that speech offensively.
How would your reputation look, based on your lexicon of actions?
It would be nice to see social signalling return to positive values, as was the case for the majority of history. Etiquette is a series of everyday social signals, after all. I think we all miss those small signs of regard.
As a one-off? Probably healthy. Little things like forgetting your birthday or breaking a vase.
As a habit?
Something’s wrong, and it might be the person ‘forgiving’. In cases of learned helplessness, they always try to portray themselves as perfect and forgiving. In fact, they enable bad behaviours, encourage evil people by being a doormat and get off on being the victim.
It’s an excuse to indulge repeatedly in grossly destructive behaviour by denying personal agency and forgiving the Evil figure who caused it. The opposite of saintly (scapegoating). And trying to claim status points by signalling afterward? Worse than the person they’re supposedly forgiving, they play everyone.
You should forgive something if it is entirely in the past and doesn’t matter at all anymore.
Otherwise, it’s foolish, because the conditions aren’t finished yet.
…The fact is, we need to be destroyed. And we have decided to do the job ourselves. And we are being allowed to do it.
Even after decades of self-inflicted decline, modern Man is too powerful – because we consistently abuse all the power we have, and every new power.
Supposing the world was still full of scientific geniuses, and that people were still as intelligent, educated and self-motivated as they used-to be? – Supposing we still made major technical breakthroughs? – What would we use them for? – Supposing there were still great composers, writers, philosophers? – What kind of beliefs would they be inspiring in us? …
…And the whole process is concealed by our rooted cultural preference for dishonesty and delusion. Another choice with consequences.
…What Thomas Szasz uncovered was that mental illnesses are better understood as metaphors for moral illness than as conventional illnesses like cancer and appendicitis. As progressives change the moral structure of society, the quasi-scientific notions of what is healthy and what is ill must also change….
That link includes this;
…Properly speaking, contends Szasz, insanity is not a disease with origins to be excavated, but a behavior with meanings to be decoded. Social existence is a rule-governed game-playing ritual in which the mad person bends the rules and exploits the loopholes. Since the mad person is engaged in social performances that obey certain expectations so as to defy others, the pertinent questions are not about the origins, but about the conventions, of insanity.…
That’s a very nurture-based way of looking at it, the PC lot should be delighted. Alas, that allots them responsibility for their actions, and the refutes the rationale behind claiming mental illness – absolving personal responsibility, the way others used to do with sins.
This idea washes with what I’ve witnessed.
Back to HD;
…It’s easy to blame the birth control pill for your own sexual incontinence, but much harder to confess your own willful sins. The fat man is more likely to blame Nabisco for making Oreo creme cookies so delicious rather than to look into his own gluttony, sloth, and intemperance. …
We have children in the bodies of adults. All the rights, none of the responsibility. It’s called extended adolescence, and better thought of as a form of Peter Pan Syndrome. [women ‘suffer’ it too]
There is a lot of sweeping under the rug. Promiscuity is still a sign of psychopathy. Homosexuality is often accompanied with a low impulse control, a resultant inability to be monogamous and multiple fetishes, which grow worse and more extreme over time. Everyone knows by now the HIV and suicide rates among transsexuals.
We seem to ignore our own common law. The age of criminal responsibility is none at all. If they come up with a good excuse, like a child to a teacher, they can be let off. Naturally, they hide behind the medical model, and play victim. What else can they do, change? I blame the Nanny State for part of this. It infantilises adults for the sake of their health. The problem has multiple prongs.
In a biological sense, these people are either human, with responsibility for themselves, or inhuman, and undeserving of their rights accordingly. Dangerous line of thought? Perhaps. Tell that to the prefrontal cortex studies detailing the impulse control and rational decision making that living in a civilized society demands.
