There is an old American aphorism regarding the socio-spiritual growth of an individual.
“Some people have to hit bottom before they know which way is up.”
The idea is that a man has to make a total mess of his life before he realizes that what he is doing doesn’t work, and that he needs to make a fundamental change.
It has a spiritual corollary as well. A person has to see that all his own understanding is off the mark, and all his best efforts don’t make a bit of difference. When he “hits bottom” he realizes that he needs God.
To offer an example, Roosh is an individual who fits this truism well. The reader could probably recount other individuals from his own mental rolodex of acquaintances.
But this phenomenon applies to humanity as a whole.
The Social Structure Hits Bottom
A societal culture changes incrementally over centuries, because there’s only so much change that the masses as a whole, or even one generation for that matter, can accept at any one time.
Dave, a commenter at Adam’s place, has summarized the structural changes in the political order, based on a YouTube video, . [Lightly edited for clarity.]
“In a nutshell, the true order (as understood by all western Europeans) was God – Catholic Church – King – Aristocracy – Middle Class- workers – nature/animals. Almost all wars of consequence since the Protestant Reformation have been won be the wrong side, and each subsequent loss pushed the revolution further down that line of God’s order.
The Thirty Years War – An effective loss for the Church. Protestantism survives, and the Church would by default need to compromise increasingly henceforth.
English Civil War – An absolute disaster. The King is executed, Puritanism flourishes (and will later spread to the USA), and although the Monarchy is restored, Parliament (aka the Aristocracy – for the time being at least) is effectively in charge.
French/U.S. revolutions — No pretence. The King is overthrown by the same movement in both nations. Yes the US founders were gentlemen. Yes they were aristocrats, but still they were revolutionaries in rebellion against their somewhat ‘tainted’ (by Henry VIII forming his own Church and the execution of Charles I during the civil war) but still rightful King. The movement away from God continues.
U.S. Civil War — Now the Aristocrats are overthrown. The Confederate leaders were gentlemen and aristocrats, the North under Lincoln were middle class businessmen. Out with the old and in with the new. The USA ceased to be the land of free born Britons, and is now a money making enterprise importing labour from all the world over.
Post WW1 — Communist and socialist revolutions galore. The workers are now in charge. The Tsar is gone. The last of the old order with him. Germany effectively has two revolutions. The USA has a socialist overthrow of Lincoln’s middle class business ruling elite with the New Deal. The Aristocrats of the House of Lords are starting to be replaced, and Parliament is now made up of all classes of people.
Today — Now the workers have been overthrown. Their jobs exported, while their third world replacement populations have been imported and allowed to create anarchy on the streets without opposition. The worship of the environment is promoted as the greatest good.
In 500 years, the actual order of the world has been incrementally degraded to the point where it has been tuned on its head. If we take the above understanding to be a true evaluation of events, the problem is, how is it even possible to reverse it?
The non USA anglosphere retains the trappings of the old order via the Monarchy. Yet its still a watered down version of the pre Henry VIII monarchy. The remnants of the USA cling to their aristocratic constitution and fair play rules, but that is laughable considering the demographics of the union. If the confederates couldn’t make a case for states rights in the 1860’s, good luck making that case in clown world today.
Meanwhile, the Catholic Church has itself been white anted, and we have that fool of Pope sitting in the Chair of St Peter.”A comment from Dave on Pushing Rubber Downhill: The Friday hawt chicks & links – The middle class imploding edition. (2020 June 6)
When wimmin, rainbow fluffs, and foreigners who become politicians call the shots, rest assured, we can go no lower.
The Anglo culture’s socio-political structure has hit rock bottom.

Christianity has hit rock bottom. What we have today is but a shadow of the real thing.
We’ve hit bottom in every appreciable way. It’s time for the American people, and western culture, to discover a new base of existence.
Many of the faithful can sense the dissolution of Christian norms. Since 1995, Orthodoxy has become the fastest growing Church in America.
Take heart! Find your new found faith in our Creator, and His Son, Jesus Christ!
I cry out to the Lord with my voice;Psalm 142:1-2 (NKJV)
With my voice to the Lord I make my supplication.
2 I pour out my complaint before Him;
I declare before Him my trouble.
Rise up, O ye people! Find your voice, the voice of a new generation, a new paradigm of reality, and a new hope. The future awaits you now. Take hold of it, for it is yours!
