The 13 Harbingers of Masculine Doom
Ever since the sexual revolution, Western men and women alike have been conditioned, or rather converted (in the evangelical sense) to a fundamental belief in the The Centrality of Sex in Western Culture, and have since come to see the world through sex-colored lenses. The vast majority of Men have been especially hard hit by this paradigm shift because of several compounding factors I’ll call The 13 Harbingers of Masculine Doom.
- Aesthetics — The innate male susceptibility to feminine beauty and sexuality (i.e. men are visually stimulated); the desire to put on a socially acceptable image and/ or “compete with the Jones'”; Political Correctness; the neglect, rejection, or ressentiment of intrinsic beauty.
- Bastardy / Broken Homes / Parental Divorce — Removes Headship and the metaphysical knowledge of God from the home. This kills a man’s emotional affect and charisma, thereby rendering him socially inefficacious, especially with women.
- Bitterness — Feelings of powerlessness, too much suffering, overwhelming loss, and not enough acceptance, joy, and thankfulness leads to deep resentment towards life itself and possibly towards God Himself. Men who succumb to bitterness give up, check out, retreat into their man-caves, and embrace the Black Pill, thereby missing present and future opportunities for grace, love, mercy, and renewal.
- Chivalry — Long established male social norms of altruism and female pedestalization which feed the male ego and give a faux expression to the male mythos of heroism and honor.
- Concupiscence — A continually aggravated sexual desire and/or a supercharged libido, leading to lust, masturbation, fornication, etc.
- Depression — Anhedonia; blunted affect display; feeling “dead” inside; lack of energy; lethargy; melancholia; repressed anger; thoughts of suicide; etc.
- Frustration — An arrested ego development resulting from false notions of the self and/or relatively unsuccessful intersexual interactions.
- Hereticism — Gnostic teachings, heretical doctrines (e.g. Blue Pill churchianity, gender equality), and various misapplied scriptural eisegeses that reinforce any of these Harbingers by applying a twisted religious significance.
- Idealism — The innate male propensity to adopt a dreamy idealistic outlook on life and/or love (i.e. Oneitis, The Soul Mate Myth, etc.); the abstract delusion of “making the world a better place”, also as applied to polity and sociality.
- Ignorance — An artificially created vacuum of Biblical truth and/or Red Pill knowledge, e.g. about attraction, women’s nature, and female mating tactics and strategies.
- Rejection — Feelings of being excluded, isolated, or unwanted; purposelessness; searching for “meaning”; social ostracization; soul wandering; “Toxic Masculinity”; etc.
- Secrecy — Intentional secrecy in some form, e.g. censorship, coverups, hidden agendas, shadowbanning, secret societies, etc. This secrecy can also take the form of passive-aggressive efforts by Alpha males and women (including mothers and wives) to keep Men in the dark.
- Sex Culture — A sexualized acculturation in a sex saturated culture shifts the focus of male awareness to a preoccupation on the things of the flesh; Feminism; Gynocentrism; etc.
Many of these Harbingers operate in conjunction with one another, and thereby create a self-supporting stronghold of sin and shame for men. Some of these strongholds are well-known to us, but others, not so much.
- Feminism is a combination of Aesthetics, (Female) Concupiscence, Chivalry, Idealism, Ignorance, Rejection, Secrecy, and Sex Culture
- The paradigmatic Blue Pill is a combination of Aesthetics, Chivalry, Frustration, Idealism, Ignorance, and Secrecy.
- The Black Pill is a combination of Bitterness, Depression, Frustration, Rejection, and Sex Culture.
- Convergent Churchianity is a combination of Chivalry, Frustration, Hereticism, Idealism, and Ignorance.
- The stronghold of Lust (e.g., masturbation, OASIS, p0rnography, etc.) is a combination of Aesthetics, Bastardy, Concupiscence, Frustration, Idealism, Ignorance, Secrecy, and Sex Culture. Here, the innate male susceptibility to sexual aesthetics combined with a sex saturated culture culminates in (1) a psychological obsession with aesthetic female attractiveness and beauty (i.e. indicators of female fertility, HWR, cleavage, etc.), (2) an intense thirst for visual titillation (p0rn), leading to lust, masturbation, and the use of p0rnography.
- The Occult is a combination of Hereticism, Rejection, and Secrecy.
- The Red Pill is a clinical analysis of these Harbingers.
- The White Pill is trusting God to successfully deal with these Harbingers.
These 13 harbingers are manifested in particular concentrations (given in the list below) in the following Faux-Masculine Archetypes. Some archetypes are borne out of particular strongholds (given in brackets).
- Bad@ss Chad = Aesthetics — Rejection.
- Mopey Dopey = Depression + Frustration + Rejection.
- The Abusive Criminal / Thug = Bastardy + Frustration + Rejection.
- The Armchair Philosopher = Frustration + Idealism.
- The Blue Pilled Alpha = [The Blue Pill] + Hereticism + Sex Culture.
- The Bungling Dimwitted Lazy Husband = Aesthetics + Hereticism + Ignorance + Rejection
- The Boring Loyal Dude = Chivalry + Idealism + Rejection
- The Dark Triad = Aesthetics + Concupiscence + Secrecy + Sex Culture.
- The Decadent Christian (Antimonianism) = Aesthetics + Concupiscence + Hereticism.
- The Decadent Christian (Ressentimentalism) = Aesthetics + Hereticism + Idealism.
- The Decadent Christian (Legalism) = Frustration + Hereticism + Idealism + Rejection.
- The Incel = Bitterness + Frustration + Ignorance + Rejection + Sex Culture.
- The Lecherous Horndog = Aesthetics + Concupiscence + Sex Culture.
- The Male Feminist = [Feminism].
- The Playboy = Aesthetics + Idealism.
- The Responsible Figurehead / Sock Puppet = Chivalry + Hereticism + Secrecy.
- The Sebaceous Soy Boy = Hereticism + Ignorance + Rejection.
- The Simp = Bastardy + Ignorance + Rejection
- The White Knight = [The Blue Pill] + Concupiscence + Hereticism.
- The Workaholic = Aesthetics + Depression + Frustration + Idealism + Rejection.
It should be noted that if any of these types subscribe to any of the various Strongholds listed in the previous section, then the Harbingers associated with that Stronghold are added to the Harbingers inherent in that type. The compounding effect of these factors is why churchianity is a Beta Factory.
The sum total of all these factors have led the vast majority of males to become pussy whipped without the typically accompanying allure of honeycraft.
Causes / Sources
In the past, cultural influences (feminism, divorce, widespread sexual promiscuity, etc.) and various aspects of churchianity (Chivalry, complementarianism, etc.) have been summarily blamed for the downfall of men. However, when we look closely at the 13 Harbingers listed above, we see that these Harbingers can be categorized into the following groups with some overlap.
- Innate male tendencies — Aesthetics, Concupiscence, Idealism, and some aspects of Chivalry (i.e. being a defender and protector, dignity, ego, heroism, honor).
- False Worldly Beliefs — Chivalry, Frustration, Hereticism, Idealism, Sex Culture,
- Promulgated by Men (e.g. cruel Alpha males, absent or careless fathers, heretical pastors, etc.) — Bastardy, Hereticism, Ignorance, Secrecy
- Perpetuated by Women — Bastardy / Divorce, Ignorance, Secrecy.
- Compounding Factors — Bastardy / Parental Divorce, Bitterness, Depression, Hereticism, Rejection, Sex Culture.
Therefore, instead of blaming feminism or churchianity for men’s woes, we could make better progress in liberating men from sin by checking whether any of these Harbingers exist in the men around us, making them aware of it, and doing what we can to help them break free. In ages past, this was called accountability, mentoring, and/or teaching, but today, there is a shroud of ignorance that needs to be cut through first before accountability can take place. So mentoring and teaching is paramount.
