QUOTE: "MGTOW was never anything but a tool." – Ragnar
Actually there is one aspect of MGTOW that has not been utilized yet.
On a philosophical level, MGTOW is the answer to the Marxist Dialectic. If ever one studies the dialectic and how it is used to manipulate, you will see the one constant recommendation for how to “stop” the dialectic: Step out of it.
That means that on a philosophical level, you must “step out of the cycle” and take a stand. To stop the dialectic you must stop rationalizing to the lowest common denominator, stand up straight and tall, and declare, “THIS is right, and THAT is wrong. I will not budge.”
On philosophical level, MGTOW is the “right way” to fight this.
QUOTE: "…many don’t regard MGTOW as philosophical at all. Long ago Zenpriest/Jadedguy wrote something like that in a discussion at the old board. The opposition then was that we need action now – no philosophy. Futhermore MGTOW has started a life of it’s own and who can speak against that? LOL! Make a stand we should – I absolutely agree." — Ragnar
Yes, the philosophy stuff is not as flash as visions of planting a flag victoriously on Iwo Jima, and thus many men reject philosophy – however, just like the US Air Force doesn’t have much use for $100 million figher jets when your enemy isn’t fighting you in the air but on the street with low tech car bombs, so is this a different kind of warfare and it requires the proper tools to win the struggle.
In order to illustrate why making a stand is so important, one has to understand how the dialectic uses “consensus” to change the views and attitudes of the population. Here is a diagram I have which illustrates the general mechanics of the dialectic and how it can be used to alter the truth, or rather, to create new truths. Keep in mind that an important component of dialectical manipulation is thinking three steps ahead.
“Dialectical thought is related to vulgar thinking in the same way that a motion picture is related to a still photograph. The motion picture does not outlaw the still photograph but combines a series of them according to the laws of motion.” — Leon Trotsky
So, dialectical thought manipulates the truth in the same way that a still picture is used, in multiple series, to make a motion-picture. In the same way, the dialectic makes “new truths” by pitting a “thesis” (truth) against an “anti-thesis” (anti-truth) – these two truths argue and argue and argue against eachother until they reach a consensus, or a compromise of the two. This compromise then becomes a synthesis, or a synthetic truth, which then becomes the new “truth,” (now you can repeat the whole process over again with a new argument) and like how still-pictures in a series creates a motion picture, a series of these new “synthesized truths” can lead to a completely altered sense of reality, and adhere to that reality’s “logical” conclusions.
This is why I always yammer on about the value of Absolute Truth.
Absolute Truth does not compromise. It scoffs at “consensus.” It takes a stand – Absolute Truth is a male principle. Relative Truth, while also present in males, is a female principle. This is something illustrated even in the story of the Garden of Eden.
So, think about how the dialectic can work to alter truth and also, destroy things.
Imagine that you believe 1 + 1 = 2 (Thesis), and your opponent’s argument is 1 + 1 = 3 (Anti-thesis). The anti-thesis argument asks you to compromise to reach an agreement, a consensus, a synthesized truth somewhere in between 1 + 1 = 2 and 1 + 1 = 3. In this case let’s say we reach consensus half way – so, now we have 1 + 1 = 2.5 (Synthesis/New Truth)
Well, for some things, you cannot compromise. Not one frickin' millimeter.
1 + 1 = 2! No matter what you friggin’ say! No matter how many people in society say it is 2.5, I DON’T GIVE A SHIT, 1 + 1 = 2!
What good does 1 + 1 = 2.5 do for society, or even 1 + 1 = 2.1?
Once an Absolute Truth is identified, one must refuse to compromise it.
Marxism abolishes Absolute Truth. In a Marxist society everything is a Relative Truth. One thing you will hear many people who lived in Communist regimes claim they found to be the worst aspect of it all, were the lies! Everything becomes a lie, and there is no more truth.
Of course, one of the reasons why Communists abolish Christianity is because it competes with them for the allegiance of the masses, but another reason is because the Bible is firmly rooted in Absolute Truth, and it stops the dialectic dead in its tracks. God’s word is Black and White, and it does not compromise. Thus, it is very difficult to manipulate the dialectic when there is a standard of Absolute Truth to compare it to.
I sometimes suspect that this is why so many people in Communist countries were so willing to risk their lives to be Christians, and why when they got their hands on a Bible, they would take it out of its hiding place and go to read it again and again and again… sure, there is the Christianity/religious aspect to it, but also, it might possibly be the first time that person was exposed to Absolute Truth and they became addicted to it.
The Truth, the real truth, is addictive. Think about all of you guys who have been following along in the manosphere over the years… why do you hang around? Why do you keep coming back? I think it is because the manosphere is speaking the Truth and you find it addictive – infuriating for sure – but the Truth is very addictive.
Making a philosophical stand is of the utmost importance in defeating this whole gong-show.
Good thing for men that Absolute Truth is congruent with the Male Principle, as well as the willingness to sometimes stand on your principles, and refuse to compromise your position simply for the sake of going along with the crowd.
Would you rather be “right” according to the crowd, and thus use 1 + 1 = 2.5 in all of your worldly dealings, or would you choose to be willing to Go Your Own Way so you could live in a functional world where 1 + 1 = 2?
