The Foundation Of Our Civilization

During Memorial Day I got pretty depressed over where our culture is heading - right into the trash can. How can a pussified nation produce warriors? How can young men brought up in a politically correct environment become the fearsome, relentless soldiers that our nation requires in these dangerous times? I see the impact of useless metrosexual so called men at all levels of our society and the reckless, angry reaction of young men against the lack of true men who will be fathers to their sons.

In Why Can't a Democrat be More Like a Man? , One Cosmos uses an anthropological study "The Human ANimal", by Weston LaBarre to analyze child rearing and the damage done to our society by feminism.

LaBarre notes that “a society’s attitudes toward women and toward maternity will deeply influence its psychological health and all other institutional attitudes.” He wrote in 1954 -- well before the degradations to womanhood brought about by the feminist movement -- that “It is a tragedy of our male-centered culture that women do not fully enough know how important they areas women.” Sadly, today so many women only know how important they are as men.

This is a tragedy of monumental proportions, in part because it also results in men not understanding their own role in terms of being men.

[...]Femaleness as a category is secure: its undeniable signs are menstruation and maternity. But manhood -- as opposed to mere biological maleness -- has no such obvious visible markers. Rather, it is something that must be constructed and achieved. The adaptive mechanism that allows males to become men is culture.

[...] This is why something very psychologically noxious happens when government becomes mother. A similar thing happens when God becomes mother or mother becomes God. It interferes with the primordial basis of culture qua culture, which is to convert boys to men. If that fails to happen -- as with the left -- then civilization either cannot form or will not be able to sustain and defend itself, since there will be no men or manhood, only Democrats, or women and children.

This would explain the (until recently) universal practice of various male initiation rituals, in which boys are sometimes brutally wrenched away from their mothers in order to facilitate male “rebirth” and full membership in the fellowship of men. Again, femaleness is given by biology, but maleness must be proven, not just to oneself, but to the group. If appropriate models are not given for this drive, we will simply have pathological versions of it, such as the urban youth gang, which is all about proving one’s manhood, only to other female-centered boys.

In fact, this is why so much contemporary rap and hip hop is so perversely male. In a matriarchal culture so lacking in male role models, these clueless boys are constantly trying to prove that they are what they imagine a man -- and themselves -- to be.

This is why they are such pathetic, brooding, aggressive, and hyper-sexualized caricatures of manhood. (And ultimately this results from female sexuality reverting back to the mother-infant diad, with no role for men.)

Other males -- we call them liberals -- often take women as their role models, with predictable results. They regard auto-castration as the quintessence of civilization and sophistication. They aren't really assertive in a male way, but a catty or bitchy way, like the New York Times or their quintessential shemale, Obama.

[...]Someone once said that men marry women hoping they'll never change, while women marry men hoping to change them. Someone wants to change us, big time. But a big part of manhood is preserving and defending the precious things that were created and handed down to us by our forefathers.

We are about to elect a feminized man whose official policy is to surrender to our enemies, so we have moved well beyond the theoretical to the actual. In the triangulated war between liberals, Islamists, and the left, only one side can win. Our side will lose if we run out of real men because we simply do not create enough of them. We will lose if we allow the new cutural ideal of the feminized adultolescent male to become the ideal. We will lose if we forget that an upright and noble man with the capacity for righteous violence is at the very foundation of civilization. [emphasis mine - Sig94]

I wonder if one of the reasons why the Roman Empire collapsed was because their emperors were catty and bitchy?

When Rome fell in 476 AD (the western empire in Italy, not Byzantium in Constantinople) to the barbarian Odoacer , he didn't even bother killing the last Emperor - Romulus Augustus. Augustulus was not perceived as any kind of threat and was allowed to retire. He was perceived to be a useless pussy.

Romulus Augustus, the last emperor of Rome, was a target of much mockery, already in his own day. For his name alone invited ridicule. Romulus being the legendary first king of Rome, and Augustus its glorious first emperor.

Hence both his names were at times transformed to reflect the public's disrespect for him. 'Romulus' was changed to Momyllus, which means 'little disgrace'. And 'Augustus' was turned into 'Augustulus', meaning 'little Augustus' or 'little emperor'.

It was the latter version which stuck with him throughout history, with many historians today still referring to him as Romulus Augustulus.

And this is where we are headed. Our sworn enemies, Islamists, support the trainwreck with ears as President. They know they can do much damage and be safe while they do it if this pansy is elected.

Some surveys indicate that the USA is not well respected or loved - fuggitaboutit. I would rather be feared and hated by our enemies.
