Roe v. Wade is Repealed

On 22 January 1973, the Supreme Court of the United States foisted on the American people one of the most evil government edicts in history.  They made child sacrifice, Moloch worship – euphemistically known as “abortion”, or “a woman’s right to choose”, or “women’s reproductive rights” – the law of the land.  In one of the worst miscarriages of law, justice, logic, and grammar in history, the Supreme Court found a “right” in the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution that anyone capable of reading English knows isn’t there.

Before the Supreme Court’s decision, murdering babies in the womb was legal in some states, and illegal in others.  The Supreme Court made it illegal to make Moloch worship illegal.  As a result, since 1973, an estimated 65 million American babies have been sacrificed on the feminist altar of “women’s rights”.

On 24 June 2022, the Supreme Court finally reversed itself.

Ressentiment within Feminism has become a Generational Curse

Introduction

In The Disease of Decadent Christianity (2022-4-29), J. M. Smith explained an older argument (originating from Nietzsche) about how Ressentiment within Christianity has debased the religion. I explored this further in The Decadent Christian (Ressentimentalism) (2022-5-18), in which I showed that ressentimented Christian beatitudes parallel the cultural trend of fourth wave intersectional feminism. I wish to remind readers to pay close attention to ressentimented values when reading/watching the news or interacting with others.

During this study of ressentiment, I found a few other articles which describe ressentiment and how the rot of ressentiment has infected our lives in various ways. One such article was a post from Doug Wilson that described Ressentiment, Shame, and Accusation within Progressive Identity Politics (2022-6-20).

Those who sow in tears Shall reap in joy.

Psalm 126:5 (NKJV)

Joy and Sorrow

Joy is a product of salvation (Psalm 35:9) and contentment (Psalm 63:5). Romans 15:13 associates joy and peace with trust in the lord (sometimes translated as faith or hope). Joy comes when justice is served (Psalm 67:4) and mercy is granted (Psalm 106:1). Galatians 5:22 sets joy in a list of fruits of the spirit that contrast with the deeds of the flesh.

There is a common assumption that the “appropriateness” of one’s joy within a specific social setting directly corresponds to one’s confidence and social efficacy, and to a large extent, this is true.

However, it is a mistake to judge one’s salvation, contentment, and trust in God by the intensity or frequency of one’s joy. The saints in scripture were joyful at times, but also full of sorrow and suffering in others. Think of Job, the Psalms, or the origination of “the man of sorrows” (Isaiah 53:3).

I explored this further in The Decadent Christian (Ressentimentalism) (2022-5-18), in which I showed that ressentimented Christian beatitudes parallel the cultural trend of fourth wave intersectional feminism. This is a harbinger of evil that I wish to remind the reader to pay close attention to when reading/watching the news or interacting with others.

During my study of ressentiment in writing this post, I found a few other articles which describe ressentiment from different perspectives and how the rot of ressentiment has infected our lives in various ways. Learning how the tentacles of ressentiment have affected our lives may deeply affect some readers. So this post and another coming up will relay some noteworthy concepts that deserve our greater attention.

How do we teach young women about their own nature?

…like whether they are attracted to cruelty?

Are Women attracted to Cruelty?

It’s pretty well known in these parts that women are strongly attracted to the cocky funny jerk.

I was kind of a cocky jerk in high school. I turned out ok, but I noticed early on in life that I could manipulate girls into doing pretty much anything I wanted with the right combination of boyishness, cruelty, smart-@ssery, and aloof demeanor. It was fun.

Now that I have two daughters, I have a different view of this phenomenon.

Some years back, Sunshine Mary wrote a post about how she observed her 13-year-old daughter clearly starting to “tingle” for a boy at the pool who was kind of a cocky jerk, launching water balloons at the girl, aiming them right at her @ss. She liked it, and SSM could see it.

I remember she wrote about how she discussed this proclivity with her daughter. But I don’t remember much else.

Which reminds me, speaking of “equality” and introspection, has anyone on here ever met a woman who is willing to confront why they are attracted to power, money, and cruelty, and what they are doing to teach their daughters this is not good?

Red Pill Rollover

An update on how the Manosphere has changed since 2020.

Introduction

At the end of 2018, I predicted a new era of Red Pill awareness.

“MGTOW will continue running strong during this time, and Christian RP, and Married RP will slowly pick up steam.  We’re still waiting for a RP Fathers group to kick in.  I anticipate that the substance of RP topics will turn to be more personal, and more context oriented.”

It’s been 3.5 years since then.  I was right about MGTOW and that RP topics would become more personal and context oriented.  But ever since the great RP schism of 2020, the Christian RP has just been hanging on by a thread, and Married RP is almost totally obliterated.  There’s no sign of RP Fathers yet.

Here are some changes since my last assessment of the Manosphere in Moon Day Review – The Manosphere Reshuffles its Deck (2020-9-2).  I have not included blogs that went down before then.  Also, there are a lot of new YouTube channels and Vblogs that are not included here.

How to Motivate the Four Personality Types according to their Communication Styles

Build rapport, establish trust, and motivate others by cultivating a spirited interaction.

Introduction

RPA and I described Communication Styles in the last three posts.

One of the main running points of these posts is that a man doesn’t need to have a dominant personality (i.e. Extroverted, Fast Paced, and Cool) in order to be dominant. To make this distinction clearer to readers, it helps to understand that the four Communication Styles are closely aligned with the following Personality Types.

  • Analyticals = Slow Paced and Cool / Introverted and Thinking
  • Amiables = Slow Paced and Warm / Introverted and Feeling
  • Expressives = Fast Paced and Warm / Extroverted and Feeling
  • Drivers = Fast Paced and Cool / Extroverted and Thinking

Continuing on the subject of Agreeableness and Personality (2022-6-8) and Imposing Masculine Presence (2022-6-10), here, I’ll convey another case study that should illustrate how adapting to another persons’ communication style can streamline the interaction.

Intersexual Communications

In general, men should pick a woman who is more agreeable than not. However, it should be well noted that personality differences can affect what this looks like and how it is expressed.

For those personality combinations in which the man is extroverted and the woman is introverted, finding a woman who is agreeable should be inherently apparent. But for those men who have a quiet personality and who pair well with outgoing women, determining her level of agreeableness may be a bit of a trick. This is because in this type of personality coupling, the woman will naturally dominate the bulk of the discussion.

A lot of our (Jack and RPA) writings come from this perspective — how a quiet or introverted man can dominate the interaction he has with his wife without losing frame.

We think the way to get a grip on this is to recognize that there are bigger issues than introversion / extroversion that play out in the interaction, namely the man’s dominant frame and masculine presence.  (We’ll cover these two concepts later in this essay.)  Younger men who are not accustomed to how their frame and masculine presence appears to others may not realize this, but a man with courage and conviction can be introverted and introspective and still be quite dominant.

Think of a quieter man who is with a woman who is warmer, talks quite a bit, and is fast paced (i.e. being liked is her conversational frame).  As long as he is not the type of man who comes across as being scared of his own shadow, he can seem intimidating to her.  This is especially true if he knows what he wants in life and is willing to go after it.  But if he comes across as being timid, hesitant, or afraid of her reactions, then this masculine aura collapses and he’ll lose the dominant frame.

In our last post, Agreeableness and Personality (2022-6-8), we covered four basic communication styles.  This post will hone in on a particular dynamic — how introverted men can communicate with extroverted women by…

  1. Extolling Masculine Presence
  2. Listening and giving Feedback
  3. Maintaining Frame

The remainder of this post will explore these three mechanisms and how they may be used by a reserved man to create a dominant interaction with an expressive woman.

The 4 Styles of Communication

Teaching communication styles can be complex and elaborate if the instructor is knowledgeable, or kept simple if someone like me is teaching on the subject.  The complexity comes from the fact that while everyone has a dominant style, everyone also has secondary style characteristics that will influence the dominant style to some extent.
