The Rabble Rouser

GrifterShifter is a new commenter.  She first appeared on 2023/1/20, criticizing Kevin Samuels as a grifter.  Over the next few days, GS left a few comments under several posts, all having the same flavor of criticism.  When she started commenting on the most recent posts, she brought up many inflammatory ideas (e.g. immigration, monasticism, tr@nsmaxxing, vaginismus, etc.) that were waaay off topic and effectively derailed the discussion.  To top it off, her comments were disdainful towards Red Pill lore and took on a condescending tone towards men in general, especially Incels, MGTOW, et al.

I posed four questions to GS with the intention of eliciting a more solid and reasonable response out of her.

  1. How is the secular monasticism you described any different from the Black Pill, MGTOW, or other similar men’s movements?
  2. How should vaginismus be addressed in order to set proper expectations for a LTR?
  3. What do you think the church should be doing differently to help young people set proper expectations for sex and marriage?
  4. Finally, how does all this relate to Consolidating Masculinity?

The majority of this post will review GS’s flimsy responses to these questions and offer a better informed and more reasonable assessment, followed by a summary statement at the end.

SMP Paradigms Compared

In a previous post, The Path to Contentment (2023/1/18), I described two paradigms, described as the Worldly System and God’s Order, and how we are to find Contentment by jumping from one Life Loop to another, and then to another. This post will compare and contrast these two paradigms as they pertain to the SMP/MMP.

The Worldly System from the Woman’s Perspective

When a woman meets a man with Frame who is going SOMEWHERE in life she is ATTRACTED. That is the essence of why LAMPS etc. works. It shows a man with FRAME. It shows a man with something going on in his life. On a primal level, women want to mate and have children with such a man.

Expectations (for LTRs)

A man’s expectations need to be fully in line with his Mission and Purpose.

Misguided Expectations (for LTRs)

One of the biggest problems in marriage today is that people have misplaced expectations.  For men, it is expected that the wife should be a monogamous s1ut, SMV > 8, who stays thin and youthful in perpetuity. For women, the husband should be a 666 Tingletron who cooks gourmet dishes, does housework, and never shows any weakness.

Thus, the questions being asked by matrimonial hopefuls are misguided.

  • “Do I Lurrve him/her?”
  • “How does he/she make me FEEL?”
  • “What is the SEX going to be like?”

Meanwhile, questions about household duties (“Who will do the dishes?”), finances, roles, and responsibilities never come up.

The attitudes and moods behind these questions are half-baked and naive. These expectations / questions do not stand up to the storms of life, and that is why there is so much discontent.  Whenever the winds of change or the waves of doubt come upon them, these expectations are tested and discontentment strikes.  Women have an especially particular difficulty in attaining contentment as Rollo has discussed at length (see links under Related).  Some women even find a perverse form of power in discontentedness and will hold onto this attitude at all costs.

The Path to Contentment

Contentment involves avoiding complacency and agentically choosing to submit one’s self to God as opposed to pursuing self-interest or worldly ambitions.

As much as we may wish to find contentment in life, the way forward to that end is not always so clear, as I discussed in Contentment (2023/1/16).  For some, it is rather elusive. This post will examine the intricacies of how one may arrive unto a state of Contentment.

Contentment

A proactive and responsible stance towards life, with God’s blessing, eventually leads to Contentment.

False Concepts of Masculine Contentment

Contentment is often regarded as more or less equivalent to Complacency.  This is far from the truth.  Perhaps this false identification is made through observation, as we generally see that discontented people are the most agentic, for better or for ill, so it is easy to assume that contented people are not, or less so.  For example, compare discontented liberals, who are always on the warpath, with stuffy conservacucks, who philosophize and do nothing. This impression is misleading because both Conservatives and Liberals are rather discontent with the political climate, but they respond in different ways. Liberals believe they need to create change, while Conservatives think they need to prevent change, which comes across as doing nothing whenever Liberals manage to advance their agendas.

Ambition

A Man’s Ambition and his relationship with God are two entirely different things.

In its positive expression, Ambition is a restlessness in men that pushes them to strive for more.  It drives them to do better, and to be better.  This is a good quality of Men that is to be respected.  If a man’s natural ambition is linked to his purpose and mission, then he is blessed.

Reverend Billy Graham

In its negative expression, Ambition is a self-serving desire for achievement, conquest, or distinction, for material gain, power, honor, fame, wealth, and püssy galore.  In this case, Ambition is the black hand of conceit and vainglorious pride.

Men can be very aggressive about life.  But only when circumstances demand it.

Women can be very aggressive about sex.  But only when hypergamy motivates it.

When things are going well, people fall into habits and get complacent and lazy.

This post will cover one of the biggest hindrances to Men becoming actualized.

Introduction

History

I started blogging on March 7, 2008, using Blogger as my blog platform.  On September 27, 2017, I transferred the best of my blog writings from Blogger to WordPress, and began concentrating on Red Pill topics.  I received more views on WordPress in the first two months, than I had on Blogger in the previous 8 years.  Since then, my posts have grown more frequent and more regular.

Goals and Purposes

My goals and purposes in blogging are summed up in my About page.  I value easily readable, and high content quality posts that stand the test of time – writings that would be of value to readers even decades from now.  As this blog has matured, there has been more emphasis placed on Biblical and philosophical purity, sifting out truth from various Red Pill concepts, and determining how these are to be properly applied to Christian Men’s lives.

Normative Red Pill

Thanks to Roosh, et al., the Red Pill is not as esoteric as it once was, but redemption still remains to be had.

During the past few years, it was recognized that a man had to take the Red Pill in order to fully wake up from the widespread gynocentric indoctrination so prevalent in the culture.  But most men couldn’t do this unless they were first tied to the feminist whipping post and had all the lies beat out of their heads.

Catacomb Resident wrote,

“But despite the near unanimity of testimonies of men here having to walk through the fires of Hell to get here, I’m still not convinced this should be treated as normative.  Some of you seem to come close to saying that.  Typical maybe, but not at all necessary to get to the point we are now.”

If society wasn’t so far off the mark, maybe crawling through Hell wouldn’t be necessary.  But what we typically see is that men (and women too) will dawdle along in their Blue Pill / churchian / Feminist Life Script delusions until a traumatic experience shakes them up.  That’s how most men find the Red Pill.
