Steadfast Values in a Decadent Time

177927962

A rewarding thing in mentoring zoomers in their red pill journeys is seeing them come to their own red pill conclusions and revelations independent of your guidance.

Taking red pill advice from more experienced men and applying them to your own worldview is an important part of the journey. Eventually you got to stop merely reading blogs and talking to fellow red-pillers, and really move out to applying these lessons in your life.

This is what the masculine journey is all about- deeds over words. Drop the fear of failure, overcome your passivity and act. The red pill is about walking the talk quietly and building personal fortitude and strength, unlike the woke are all about performing and showing off their ideological purity on social media echo chambers for accolades and affirmation.

Hence I was pleased when one of the zoomers I had been mentoring come back to me saying that he found it impossible to watch western programs on Netflix recently. He had previously been a voracious consumer of content on that platform, watching just about every original that it could pump out.

From being able to binge watch many western programs he now found it hard to sit through even a single episode, often giving up on series he had been following for seasons. He had suddenly developed a distaste for them.

Conversely, he reported developing a taste for asian entertainment- specifically asian cinema and dramas. He found this strange as he had never explored these asian entertainment before. He also found older western films entertaining when they had been boring before.

The thing about becoming red pill is that while it starts off as an intellectual understanding of hard truths, walk the journey long enough and red pill truths will become a part of your ingrained value set. You will start finding yourself viewing many things from a new perspective, discovering surprising reactions to things you never had before.

This is natural, it shows that you have grown in your masculine journey, shedding the indoctrination of the androgynous listless blue pill malaise drilled into modern men from birth and starting to see things the way a masculine man should.

Developing a distaste for western media was a surprising experience for my zoomer mentee, but after some discussion he got it.

After understanding red pill realities and using it to navigate his masculine journey he had developed values.

He understood what masculinity entailed and how it required constant self-improvement and hard work to achieve. He realised that weaknesses were not to be glorified and celebrated but to be overcome. He had accepted that a masculine man had a duty to protect his tribe and way of life.

He found it hard to sit through anything from western media precisely because he had applied the fire of red pill reality to test it and found it wanting.

He realised western media now was not entertainment but leftist indoctrination. He saw the weak men, sexual promiscuity and deconstruction of family. He realised the overt feminist empowerment saturating it was rooted in misandry. He noticed the celebration of entitlement, dysfunction, deviancy, narcissism and mental illness.

He saw that it was decadent, and he could no longer derive any enjoyment from them with what he now knew through his red-pill paradigm. They were vehicles for blue pill thinking, they celebrated degeneracy, little more that progressive propaganda trying to brainwash him and keep him being a safe, passive exploitable blue pill modern man.

It all now actively disgusted him, and he didn’t see the value of wasting any more time on it.

He enjoyed asian cinema and older western movies because they still had values worth anything in this age of amoral postmodernism. The men were men and the women were women. Traditional values of hard work and overcoming adversity were still celebrated. Weaknesses were not celebrated or glorified, but were things for the hero to rise above. The importance of family was still celebrated. Masculinity was not denounced but rather showed as an animating force pushing the hero to complete his journey.

They were values to live by.

In our times, as degeneracy and weakness rises all around values to steadfastly hold to become all the more important for any man in his masculine journey. For all the talk of being the moral guardians of humanity progressives lack any moral compass and are motivated only to act in the interests in their cause.

It is extremely important for all red-pill men to hold strong to traditional values, as well as propagate them in defiance of the rising tide of progressive degeneracy.

Family, honour, true courage.

Hard work and perseverance.

Integrity and honesty.

Be the strong men for the hard times that are coming.

The Culture War is Here

 

The Culture Wars, Part 1 - RECKONIN'

Remember a few years back when Talon was predicting the culture wars of the west will come to Singapore?

Well it is now here.

Brownface sagas, anti-chinese raps, young people foolishly jumping on the BLM bandwagon and making cringe worthy posts on social media, calls to tear down Raffles’ statue… these are but a few incidents that have brought the extent of leftist infiltration into the cultural landscape of Singapore to the attention of the silent majority.

There will be more to come.

It is in the nature of progressives to spread their pseudo-moralism as far and wide as possible, telling you the things you should do and think. If you are not prepared for them, which most people are, you will soon find them on your doorstep baying for your tribute to the cult of wokeness or else.

It’s time to get ready. Learn about your opponents, know how they operate. Knowing is half the battle. One advantage you have is that they do not know that you, the cultural insurgent exist. Use that to your advantage.

These will be trying times. Find your brothers. Build your tribe. These coming years will be one of a struggle for the cultural soul of Singapore.

 

The Band of Brothers

These are dangerous times to be a masculine man, if you have been following the progressive narrative lately you would have seen the relentless assaults on traditional masculinity repeated ad nauseam everywhere.

Your ideological opponents want nothing but the destruction of that you value. Your culture, your values, your ideas, your thought, your freedom. Everything will be subsumed to the progressive agenda. They have set their values as the default way of thinking in the mainstream and they are always looking for people like us for their two minutes of hate.

To stand fast you need a band of brothers. A group of trusted friends that you can rely on absolutely. Men of character, men of courage and integrity. Men who know how still to be men.

Such men are hard to come by, but they are out there. Social insurgents like you and me, working quietly against the rising tide of the progressive agenda and freeing men with the hard truth of Red Pill. Look around you on message boards, in your work place, on social media. Red Pill men are everywhere, yes even here in Singapore.

As Talon has predicted, the movement is growing, and our ideological opponents know this, which is why they have redoubled their efforts to spread their agenda.

The race is on so what are you waiting for?

Go out there and find your band of brothers.

#metoo in Singapore

maxresdefault

Talon’s deep recce mission into the progressive paces of Singapore started a few months back when he started working in an industry that put him straight within the SJW scene in the nation. The regressives he interact with think he is just another average unwoke Singaporean and he uses that to bait them into revealing their ideologies, strategies and long term objectives. The bounty has been good.

Now he tells you what you as a Red Pill masculine man need to do to fight regressive infiltration in Singapore.

Most of you who are somewhat media-savvy would have been aware of the latest progressive moral panic sparked off by some Hollywood liberals that turned out to be sexual predators.

To say that this is a moral panic is somewhat of an understatement, it is more of a witch hunt with a flaming bandwagon where feminists, reeling from the various setbacks of the past year with the shitlord uprising sparked off by the weakening liberal narrative, have been scrambling head over heels to regain the capitalise on- basically by using it as an memetic weapon to regain the initiative.

The strategy is simple: use the moral panic to get as many women on board their cause as possible via an all-encompassing meme that conflates all negative interactions with men as sexual victimisation, and use that to force in their other ideological claims along with demands that things be changed to better suit them.

It won’t work in the long game of course, feminism is now the empress without clothes and more people are seeing it each day as the various absurdities of feminism grow more egregious, in part fuelled by increasing Red Pill awareness. However this does not preclude the reality that the #metoo moral panic remains a potent short term weapon in the regressive arsenal.

They seek a state of affairs where feminism holds all the cards holding the power to arbitrarily define and accuse men of sexual misconduct, having the power to completely destroy everything a man has worked for in reputation, career and social connections on the mere power of an accusation, regardless of merit. As a Red Pill man you need to know how to defend yourself from this latest feminist memetic weapon.

Naturally #metoo was as attractive to local feminists as garbage is to flies, it didn’t take long for all my millennial feminist coworkers to start sharing their various #metoo experiences, most of them largely revolving around unpleasant encounters with creepy beta men or loosely defined street harassment that involved men staring or making them feel unsafe.

Undoubtedly many of the accounts were embellished for dramatic effect, being the feminists that they are (remember SJWs always lie), and capped off with demands to take the one-sided stories of many of the #metoo posts as gospel truth.

It didn’t take long for the #metoo posts to devolve into social media demands that men take action about it, which in their minds meant becoming grovelling feminists allies and “improving” themselves. Some of the beta men took the bait, and a couple of manginas and white knights saw it as a chance to raise their near-zero chance of attracting women by proving they were “better” men.

All in all it was a pretty good team-bonding virtue signalling experience for the sisterhood at my workplace, and they probably felt that their feminism was energised by the tribal belief in their shared victimisation.

The various ideological problems with #metoo have been covered in many manosphere and mainstream articles, so I won’t reinvent the wheel here. What I am going to talk about is the implications it has for men here, and what Red Pill men should do about it.

Fortunately Singapore hasn’t gone full libetard the way of the west yet, although it is gradually shifting that way and it doesn’t help that the incumbent government is starting to humour regressives, probably as way of staying relevant to the younger crowd.

Built on pragmatism, Singapore is naturally SJW-resistant, meaning the #metoo hash was largely trending among the english educated liberal demographics, which are (still) a minority. Nevertheless we are seeing a rise of local liberal online publications that present progressive shibboleths as if they are majority opinion.

The real battle for Singapore is not over the present, but the future. Never look at the present and think that you are safe or things aren’t so bad yet. Remember that in times of abundance feel-good progressive ideologies will progress as there are less penalties for entertaining bad ideas.

So while the social impact of #metoo is limited to local liberals making noise to get on the bandwagon and some online progressive media outlets covering it, one can only expect the importation of SJW moral panics to become increasingly common in the future. The people in my workplace certainly hope to make this a reality.

The main use of #metoo for the local Red Pill man is in it being a sounding board and litmus test for just how far along the taint of progressiveness as crept in his social circle. The way someone shares a #metoo provides useful intelligence on how radically left they are.

While a good deal of the #metoo posts are just shared as people jumping on the bandwagon of an internet trend, it is also used by many local progressives to virtue signal. Look out for signs such as the use of SJW buzzwords and long polemics involving progressive gender dogma. These are useful in knowing the disposition of your enemy and how they think. Even the way casual bandwagoners share a #metoo can provide you insight into how far along they are in accepting progressive dogma as the mainstream moral standard of behaviour.

All this information is useful for the Red Pill insurgent, it allows you to know who your enemy is and where they are. It allows you to also locate potential recruits and allies, plan accordingly. Be on the look out for those who express scepticism and criticism of #metoo, more so if they drop a nugget or two of subtle Red Pill truths in there. They are possibly fellow social insurgents.

Remember in the new battle grounds of the culture war you are surrounded and outnumbered. Your enemy currently has the advantage in that they have gotten their dogma to be recognised as the de facto moral authority and standard, and are ever pushing things their way in small steps. You are also outnumbered by the large number of Blue Pillers who go long with the enemy without knowing that they are actually acting against their interests.

However know that you have the Red Pill knowledge on your side along with the antifragility and flexibility of an insurgent force that can fade into the background and choose it’s time and place of battle. Use your enemies tools for your own means to gather intelligence and locate allies.

The culture war is already on for the Singapore narrative, and you need to fight with every tactic that you know. The only other choice is surrender.

Liberal Shibboleths: Singapore Edition

5e3

An article published by the Straits Times regarding local firms putting money into Pink Dot 2017 provides some insight into the current shibboleths in circulation within the liberal community in Singapore. While the current state of LGBT affairs and Pink Dot is something Talon does have a fair bit to write on that is for another post. What I am going to address here is how a quick look at the press statements of the supporting organisations quickly ticks off the checkboxes of terms liberals are fond of using:


Another sponsor is TV production company Hoods Inc. Its co-founder Bratina Tay, 42, said: “We believe in equality and we do not believe in discrimination. We’re not imposing our beliefs on other people; it’s just what we believe in. If this helps to bring awareness to the public, we are happy to do so.”

Digital agency Xpointo Media contributed $5,000. Its managing director, Ms Kathy Teo, 45, said: “Diversity and inclusion are important values to our company. Broadcasting our commitment to these values is good for business.”


Shibboleths, a shorthand term for the commonly repeated terms, ideas and beliefs within a community, are a good way of sizing up the idealogical stances of people around you. You should be especially alert if you hear someone dropping them at a good rate. At the rate these common liberal shibboleths were being dropped in the quotes, one can get a good picture of the probable idealogical stances of these people beyond just putting money for Pink Dot.

The terms commonly tagged to liberal Shibboleths aren’t merely words, they are refined expressions of the ideology they come from and carry a lot of baggage. When a progressive uses terms like “equality”, “discrimination”, “awareness”,”diversity” or “inclusion”, they don’t mean it in a way that people commonly understand them, but rather the way that progressives do.

The trick is to convince everyone that it is the progressive definition of the term, with all it’s associated progressive ideological baggage, is the one that everyone should go by. If not subjected to Red Pill resistance, the redefinition of these terms to come under the regressive agenda is all but inevitable.

You see it everywhere in how terms like “racism” and “privilege” have been somewhat successfully subverted by regressives to the advantage of their ideologies. Language is a powerful tool and the one who controls the definition of words holds the power.

As Red Pill social insurgents who can see through the regressive liberal delusions, shibboleths are useful as it allows you to quickly sound off and size up the people you interact with and gain intel on what ideologies they subscribe to as well as the level of their commitment to cause.

A person dropping one or two shibboleths occasionally is probably just your run of the mill Blue Pill who has had exposure to liberal ideas in common media and has has a layperson’s understanding of it, and might even prove a good prospect for you to plant the seed of Red Pill doubt in them by gently cracking these ideas with them in casual conversation. The ones dropping multiple shibboleths repeatedly almost all the time are probably not casuals, and are people you certainly need to be careful around.

As always, be careful in letting your own shibboleths slip when talking to non-Red Pills. If possible, find new ways of presenting Red Pill ideas without resorting to cliches or terms that are in common use within the Manosphere.

This serves several purposes- it helps you to maintain cover as a social insurgent, it prevents people who have been programmed by mainstream bluepill thought from being triggered at the mere mention of Red Pill terms, and crucially, also allows you to approach your own ideas from new angles to find new memetic combinations to strike out in your insurgency against the regressive invasion.

Understanding shibboleths and using them to maximal effect for your Red-Pill insurgency to is a crucial skill. Master not just your own memes, but that of your enemy’s as well.

Choose The Right Weapon

ddac8456502fb078751207e46e06907e

A common mistake I see Red Pill social insurgents new to the game make in online debate is that they tend to engage with infodumps containing Red Pill walls-of-texts to debunk Progressive lies.

Remember that it doesn’t matter how watertight your carefully-argued post is if it is so dense that nobody bothers to read through all of it. Remember that arguments online are rarely won by making your opponent concede through the sheer force of logic, facts and reason itself especially if you are dealing with Rabbit psychologies, which you most probably will be when engaging Progressives.

Rather remember that you are conducting this debate for an audience, and the trick is to present your arguments in such a way that it appeals to the neutral third-party audience reading all this. The debate is a platform on which you have an opportunity to present Red Pill truths to the wider world in the guise of competing with mainstream Progressive ideology. Wall-of-texts are a terrible way of doing this, especially if the exchange ends up being back and forth engagements consisting of such.

Know that wall-of-text debates only has an audience of two- you and your enemy and are often a waste of time and energy to engage in. The exception is if you are engaging with a person who is really interested in the truth and acting in good faith even if they disagree, at which case wall-of-texts may be worth it as an exercise of one-t0-one persuation and to hone your own arguments and thoughts.

Instead of the noob infodump tactic, remember that being effective in a debate with your enemy (idealogical opponent acting in bad faith) will involve being able to be linguistically devastating to both their arguments, ideas, egos and psyches in as little words as possible. Learn to keep your posts short and to the point, demonstrating full control of the situation with as little effort as possible.

Remember that less is often more. One devastatingly powerful realtalk smackdown given in just two lines utterly shattering your opponent is often better than a 10 paragraph point-by-point debunking. This works even better if your opponent is Wall-Of-Texting as the contrast between one party who just can’t shut up and another who knows how to smash his opponent in just a tweet makes you appear masterful.

So look through your opponent’s argument and find the fatal flaw, exploit that for a single powerful attack instead of trying to hit every nit-pick, losing focus and the audience’s attention in the process.

Remember to choose the right tools. Less is more; learn to destroy your ideological enemies in just a paragraph demonstrating Red Pill truths, confidence, and mastery. The audience will see the contrast and naturally gravitate towards the more charismatic side, even if they don’t say it. Bonus points if your SJW opponent helps by melting down. It’s going to take practice, and the sooner you start learning your basic Shitlording skills the better.

 

Wolf and Rabbit People: A Summary

wolf14

I’ve noticed an uptick of readers to this blog recently, especially on posts involving social commentary. Be you a new or regular visitor to this blog you might have realise I often use the terms “Wolf” and “Rabbit” when describing people. This might be confusing to new readers who are not aware of the basics of r/K Selection theory and how it has been used in many aspects of Manosphere thought to analyse social issues.

It is from r/K selection theory that we get the terms “Wolf” and “Rabbit”, which are archetypes used to describe the psychologies of individuals based on how they fall on the r/K spectrum. These terms are useful because their namesakes closely resemble the types of psychologies we see in r or K selected people.

Understanding r/K psychologies can provide you with a useful model to decipher the underlying instincts and motivations that drive human behaviour. Man is often an irrational creature that gives retroactive justifications to his actions to give them a veneer of rationality, more so if he has subscribed to reality-denying ideologies like Progressivism.

A common mistake many new social insurgents make when they first enter the ideological battlefield is that they attempt to achieve their aims by convincing neutrals and defeating enemies through the brute force approach of attempting to “logic” their way to victory. While Red Pill truths can be a powerful knife that cuts to the core of many Blue Pill psyches the brute force reasoning approach rarely works as the natural inclinations of people to avoid cognitive dissonance will cause them to deny reality even if it stares them in the face.

This is why you often can’t unplug many invested Betas just by hitting them with cold hard reason and truth, more often than not they will just double down because that feels better.

To be effective you need to truly understand their underlying subconscious instincts and motivations, making your influence felt there instead of just on the intellectual plane. This is why a good understanding of how the Rabbit and Wolf people tick is imperative for your success in the ideological battlefield.

So without ado, a short cheat sheet and some exposition on how things work regarding the psychology of the Wolf and Rabbit people:

The Grand Matrix of Wolf and Rabbit People

 Attribute

Wolf

Rabbit

Attitude towards Competition Competitive Anti-Competitive
Resource Perspective Resources viewed as limited- needs to be worked for and carefully managed

Resources viewed as unlimited and readily available

Value Model Extrinsic, based on merit (eg. social ranking, meritocracy) Intrinsic, assumes value by virtue of existing. (eg. basic unalienable rights)
Sexuality Favours late sexualisation of young, controlled breeding, conservative and puritanical

Favours promiscuity, young sexualised early. Novelty seeking prioritised

Investment in offspring

High- young receives high level of parental investment. Parents want best for offspring

Low- reduced investment in raising young, parents less interested in offspring outcome
Resource Distribution Merit-based
(earn what you eat)
Redistributive
(everyone gets an equal share)
Group Loyalty High- loyalty to in-group is seen as important, associations tend to be deliberate and formal Low- trust and loyalty is not important to in-group, associations tend to be a matter of convenience
Response to Threats Fight/Resist Flee/Submit
Violence Highly structured and ritualised with formal rules of combat Unstructured, spontaneous mob violence with no rules of combat
Value System Principle Based- making and breaking the rules structured on formal principals even if unpleasant Emotion Based- rules are made and broken based on how good they make one feel
Favoured Environment Harsh, Resource-restricted Easy, Resource-abundant
Gender Model Dimorphic- clear division of roles between the genders. Males tend to be more masculine and females feminine

Androgynous- males can be more feminised while females more masculine. Genders roles more interchanagable  

There you have it, the main attributes and differences between the Wolf and Rabbit people summed up in one big table, you will probably start to realise that a good deal of your friends mainly fit into one archetype as you go down this table. You would also realise that your Progressive acquaintances tend to be hardcore Rabbit.

While nobody cleanly fits into either archetype fully- it’s a spectrum after all, understanding the key aspects of Wolf and Rabbit psychology will allow you to better deconstruct a lot of the leftist memes that are flooding the ideological battlefield. Understanding your enemy will also allow you to choose better approaches.

For example, if you realise that a people you are engaging are hardcore Rabbits, appealing to their sense of loyalty in order to make an argument is a very poor move as Rabbits have low in-group loyalty. Calling them as disloyal is unlikely to illicit much of a response as Rabbits do not really understand the concept of loyalty to the in-group and might even see it as a virtue to sell everyone out for personal gain.

A common mistake that people make when formulating rhetorical attacks is creating them based on what they personally fear instead of their enemy is actually afraid of. This is psychological projection and is a poor method of picking your linguistic kill-shots. I’ve also seen many Wolves who engaged Rabbits expecting a fair and honourable fight on the plains of logic only to get dogpiled and Doxxed because they didn’t understand Rabbit violence is unregulated and anarchic with no respect for the rules of war to limit damage to all parties involved. You need to understand your Rabbit opponent and know what makes them tick in order to safeguard yourself and be effective.

Being anti-competitive, the real fear that Rabbits face is the prospect of being trust back into a competitive environment where they have to compete with the Wolf people for resources. This fear underlies much of their rhetoric on why resources should always be redistributed regardless of merit and society be made as “equal” as possible. Hence, forcing through verbal guile to make a Rabbit conclude that they need to earn their keep is a good way to make them freak out and lose control.

Understanding that Rabbit morality is emotionally rather than rule based will also pay dividends in making sense of the various SJW ideologies that are churned out en masse by the Cultural Marxist machine. When you know that they are structured with the end goal of making sure there are no bad feels on the part of their holders, the various logical incongruences start to make sense because the ideology, despite having an appearance of being a logical argument, was never intended to be one in the first place.

Know that the a good way to attack these ideologies are by taking advantage of the emotional nature of Rabbit emotions to make them dismantle themselves. Very often you can mobilise one SJW ideology with greater emotional impact to demolish another one simply by setting one SJW to clash with another, the low-trust and unstructured nature of how Rabbits conduct violence will mean that it often ends up being a zero-sum game between the two. All this is way more effective than attacking the fortress of their ideas from the outside of the Rabbit warrens.

As always, knowledge is power and as a social insurgent you need to know the enemy and attack all their weak spots. Know your Wolf and Rabbit people well.

Fighting Progressives and Recruiting Insurgents

ab370a2b962d2168056dc8065268fa98

The Fire Rises

The Red Pill insurgency has been gaining momentum in the past few years, but 2016 was the year were it really went mainstream to have a visible impact in the public ideological battlefield.

Previously restricted to just isolated groups of Red Pill men trading ideas on the forgotten corners of the internet, Red Pill truths are now for the first time, publicly presented in active opposition to the prevailing Progressive narrative while leftists all stand slack-jawed in disbelief as their most powerful rhetorical weapons proved to be all but useless.

But this is just the first step- it’s time for the insurgency to make the next stamp by ramping up recruitment in order to gain in strategic effectiveness. The time has never been more ripe that to make a big move as it is now when leftists are reeling back from the heavy body blows at their recent defeats.

Singapore fortunately has still been largely spared by Progressive creep into it’s ideological mainstream but make no mistake- the enemy here is trying hard, throwing every Progressive ideal wholesale they can rip off from the west to make something stick.

And some has, if the rise of Singaporean identity politics in memes like Chinese Privilege has risen in popularity among the english-educated demographics. A quick look around the Singaporean internetz will quickly find several wannabe Progressives preaching leftist dogma wholesale, working hard to push the Progressive agenda into the social fabric of Singapore.

The fight is on, and the field is open for battle.

Remember that local Progressives are by and large not intellectually committed to the on-paper ideas that they preach. For many of them taking these ideological stances is a often a statement of fashion, a lifestyle accessory that allows them to signal their virtue to others in their social circle as well as think of themselves as superior to the unwashed masses.

This lack of adherence to any intellectual standards and belief in their own superiority means that your Progressive will not be honest, neither will they act in good faith when engaging others outside of their dogma. SJWs always lie, and they will never play fair. Get this in your head, they are the enemy, they are not content to leave you be, and they wish nothing more than for the destruction of your way of life for their own amusement and social proof. 

Fighting Progressives 

In any case Progressives ideas are destructive to a civillisation and needs to be combated and defeated by local Red Pill insurgents on the battlefield of ideas. To do so you need to team up with fellow Red Pills and move to engage Progressives where you see them. Remember you will be at a disadvantage as the Progressives will be wielding powerful rhetorical weapons designed to discredit you as a racist, sexist, homophobe and all sorts of deplorable villainy.

Do not back down, realise that they are attempting to define the frame of the conversation in their favour and don’t play ball. The frame of what is considered moral in Singapore has not shifted to the leftist side, but they are winning as the population shifts to be more r-selected and has never experienced the full horrors of the progressive narrative turning their societies into a madhouse. Unlike the West where decades of progressive ideas has generated fatigue and disillusionment, you have to fight uphill against the natural inclinations of the population to entertain leftist ideas.

So you have to be smart and nimble, pick your attacks where they can cause maximum damage and do not bother with being bogged down in unproductive ones. Remember a 100 post back and forth exchange just to win an argument that nobody has the time for is useless versus a single tersely worded linguistic killshot that completely shatters the Progressive psyche for all to see. Reserve your detailed debates only with people who are honestly trying to explore the issues and learn something.

Keep your true stances and intentions unclear and mysterious to the enemy and always force them to qualify themselves and their ideas. Remember in Singapore the Red Pill social insurgency is still relatively unknown so make use of this to catch your enemy off-guard.

Remember to keep your debates short, impressive and always put your opponents on the defensive by making them defend themselves. Hit them hard and fade away before they can react, prevent them from gaining footholds in the ideological battlefield by crushing their attempts to define the frame of the debate on their terms. Dominate them so totally that their attempts to use their most powerful accusatory weapons of racism/sexism/whateverism look more like desperate last-ditch plays that impress exactly no one. Watch them shrink away as they realise they bit off more than they could chew.

Recruiting Insurgents

The insurgency must grow as the fire rises, never has the time been more ripe than to start unplugging your fellow men, with their minds being primed by what has happened in America with Trump getting elected and smashing the leftist narrative of cultural invulnerability.

Note that while your Blue pill friends are conditioned to automatically express a revulsion towards all things Trump, the seed of an idea has been planted in their heads just by witnessing all that has happened. They had a glimpse of how a Red Pill social insurgency can defeat the Leftist narrative in a surprise upset. While many cognitive dissonance filters are working to keep the Blue Pill strongly entrenched, these happenings have created leverage in their minds that you can work on.

And if you know how to act on them, you can start to slowly sway your Blue Pill towards a path that takes them to the Rabbit Hole and into the Red. Personally I have seen this happen as I engaged with some Blue Pill friends who were looking for some explanation on what had happened beyond the cut and dried leftist ideas that they are starting to suspect. They didn’t go fully Red Pill of course- unplugging is a long process, but they were far less sympathetic with the Progressive narrative when I was done with them.

Remember the idea is not just to win people entirely over to your side, we are not Progressives who demand unity of thought within dogma and employ brain washing and indoctrination techniques to enforce behaviour. Going Red Pill is a process of self-realisation, and you can only get the most dedicated and motivated insurgents that will carry on the fight when they have picked up the mantle of saving civillisation from Progressive rot on their own volition.

Take your time with unplugging people slowly, it will take patience, but the results are worth it. Meanwhile, Progressives are running around desperately trying to beat people into their mould with threats of labelling them as social outcasts. Compared to them, you will seem like the paragon of reason, a person who is truly interested in making the world a better place instead of just seeming to do so for social proofs.

There are those who are already pretty much Red Pill in outlook- they just haven’t learnt the terms. They people are ripe for recruitment into the social insurgency if they haven’t already been unknowingly waging one themselves. You just need to convince them of the danger of Progressive infiltration in soceity and they will join you. Keep an eye out for these people for they are valuable and an easy way to quickly build your ranks. A good deal of my best fellow insurgents came from this demographic, so place this as a top priority as much as you can. Always be on the lookout for fellow Red Pills. 

And there are Blue Pills who are on the cusp of taking the Red due to personal life crises. The Blue Pill outlook has been seriously threatened by something happening to them that has led them to realise that their fantastical Blue Pill beliefs are inadequate. This is most often seen in a breakup where a guy was dumped for being too beta. Start opening their eyes up slowly to the Red Pill by feeding them small doses of it. Before long you will have your own insurgents.

In any case it’s not just enough to attack Progressives effectively, you need to build your own tribe as well. This is the only way you can win in the long term.

The fire rises.

 

Aging Progressives

485219_498807830175989_723346145_n

“If a person is not a liberal by 25 he has no heart, if he is not a conservative by 35 he has no brain.” 

As members of a young ideological movement Red Pill social insurgents aren’t born into their way of thinking, most of the folks who come to Red Pill truths about the world do so through a process of unplugging from their Blue Pill mindsets.

Talon here is no different- I was your typical hapless asian Beta Blue Pill trying to get through a liberal humanities course in university drinking deep from the fount of liberal progressive ideology. I was young and in my twenties, fully invested in the idea that us progressive liberal millennials were the bleeding edge of soceity set to usher in a new age of humanity free from the ignorance of our knuckle-dragging racist and sexist elders.

This is not too surprising when you realise that the younger brain fresh out of teenage development tends to be predisposed towards seek out novelty. That coupled with a lack of experience with the real world thanks to our sheltered upbringing has led to a generation that naturally gravitates towards liberalism, with all it’s novelty seeking revolutionary radical causes promising big changes in the world.

It isn’t until these folks age and start accruing hard-bitten real-world experience they start viewing things differently and realising gaps in the model of the liberal solution to everything- Complete equality is impossible nor is it desirable to achieve at all costs. The genders are different and ignoring these differences for feminist-approved ideology often leads to disaster. Diversity only works if the groups you are trying to diversify with actually have something of value to offer.

These shifts in perception come from the relentless beat of harsh reality wearing down the idealistic liberal paradigms that we had naively adopted during our younger years. We start to see the world for what it really is and plan accordingly.

For Talon, the triggering event for unplugging came abruptly through the unceremonious end of a relationship in which I had invested all my Beta energies and paradigms into. This is by no means an unusual occurrence- the end of a relationship is where many Blue Pill men find to be the start point of their unplugging journey.

I didn’t go all Red Pill immediately, rather it was a slow realisation that all the Blue Pill paradigms and narratives that I had been sold since young was inadequate to explain and address the challenges of life. I started to ask questions that were considered heretical to Blue Pill belief, I started to read around and follow the trajectory of men who had walked my path before.

Little by little I became Red Pill. I realised that our elders were right on many things about human nature that we had dismissed as old bigotries.While it was probably my scientific mindset that made me gravitate towards a structured and codified model of the world as explained by Red Pill thinking, many of my peers around my age had found their way to similar conclusions without ever hearing of the term “Red Pill”.

As we grew older, we shifted right in response to the realities we saw around us.

But not everyone did, a good deal of my Blue Pill uni friends are still Blue Pill, some even having doubled down on it in response to failures in their personal lives. It is a sad sight to watch, but years of trying to unplug them have made me realise that turning Red Pill is a personal choice and one that requires a brutal, honest reflection on oneself.

I also noticed a gender gap in this shift from left to right- while I could see a number of my male schoolmates from uni shifting to Red Pill truths as they matured, this same trend was not really observed for the females who more or less showed relatively little shift in their view of the world, remaining steadfastly progressive.

And this is where things get interesting.

I’ve noticed that my liberal schoolmates don’t age well.

The characteristics we associate with progressive thinking have a natural affinity for the young as it appeals to the energetic, novelty seeking nature that comes with youthful energy. But there is a time and place for everything and the experimentations of novelty seeking necessarily need to be tempered with the real life experiences in order to become mature, well adjusted individuals that can build and defend civillisation.

But we never really saw this with my liberal schoolmates. Sure they found bigger and more complicated words to describe the injustices in world via. their progressive paradigm but as functional adults doing functional things they are incomplete.

Basically they are stuck in perpetual young adulthood. Immature. Incomplete. Stuck in the lala land of regressive progressive ideology. And as much as I despise regressives and all their backwardness it is hard to watch people that you used to go to school with get stuck in life with no fucking clue about what to do.

It’s especially tragic to watch for the females, stuck in an ever repeating loop of trying to achieve the false dreams that feminism had promised them, with each new failure in achieving a life milestone while watching their twenties dwindle away leading them to blame the world for their lack of progress.

Meanwhile the more sensible of the lot had already settled down happily and quietly started families, moving on to the next phase of life as nature intended. They don’t make a big fuss about what they are doing, they have taken on adult responsibilities and started giving back to civillisation, finding happiness and contentment in that.

In contrast, the “empowered” feministas flail around, exploding their social media feeds about fears of aging, why they can’t find a right man (because men are sexists for not wanting to date a drama-filled aging woman with little to offer that a man would like), why being aging and single is awesome, the next bullshit tattoo they are getting, the next social justice cause they are jumping onto, and how many cats they intend to get.

For all the posturing, they strike me as perpetually immature, constantly unhappy people.

They know that somehow the whole progressive gig does not have a very good retirement package, but are so invested in it that they have no choice but to double down convincing themselves that they have it better than the rest who sold out to common sense.

It is sad, it like watching milk spoil. All that youthful vitality fading to bitterness and desperation never achieving its potential.

The aging progressive is inherently unhappy, because utopia never came and they blame the world for it. They are stuck in the idealistic novelty seeking of their twenties and don’t realise that there is a time and place for everything and they’ve held their hand for too long.

The progressive does not age well.

As masculine Red Pill men our job is to save our kin from ending up with such a fate. Know that unchecked progressivism is a life dead-end. People who stay too long in the idealistic paradigms of youthful liberalism and refuse to grow out of it will eventually find that there is no pot at the end of their liberal fantasy, but rather nature demanding that they foot the bill for all that wasted time. Always take the opportunity to remind people of this reality.

Insurgents vs.The Weakening Liberal Narrative

maxresdefault

The stunning defeats the mainstream progressive narrative suffered recently offer a good study in how a smaller, but more nimble and motivated force can punch way above it’s weight while facing a larger and more powerful foe.

On paper it shouldn’t even be a contest, over the past decades since winning the culture war progressives have controlled mainstream dialogue on what is considered moral and managed to emplaced the all-powerful memes of “racism/sexism/whateverism” in popular consciousness to serve as gatekeepers to their narrative. Run afoul of liberal dogma and see how quickly these terms will be used on you to bring you to heel.

On top of that, the progressive movement has enjoyed virtually uncontested support in mainstream media coverage, being able to bring the heavy hand of the media and associated lynch mobs upon any who threaten the modern progressive narrative with heresy.

While most of this has been happening in the West, even Singapore is not immune to the rise of such regressive culture, having seen several incidents in which local regressives have mobilised in an attempt to bring Western-style liberal outrage mobs to respond to any breach of the liberal narrative. While Singapore may not be fully aware of it, the frame of public consciousness, especially among the english-educated crowd is shifting to the liberal narrative, slowing uprooting the traditional Singaporean mindset as the various memes of regressivism sink their roots.

In any case, in most parts of the first-world in the West liberals control the frame. They are the new moral majority have have been since the won the culture wars of the 60s. They hold many advantages over other idealogical narratives and have the means to ruthlessly crush opposing ideas without much effort.

So how they they suffer so many stunning defeats of late? How did the cultural juggernauts of progressivism, feminism and social justice packing all the advantages lose out to an unorganised rabble of deplorables?

That’s because they’ve gotten fat, complacent, and are fighting yesterday’s war.

Your modern progressive is a descendent of the original liberals that fought and won the culture wars against the traditional right. As much as the modern progressive/feminist/SJW claims to be fighting, they actually function more like occupation troops seeking to police and entrench their narrative in a cultural battlefield that they have already won. The various strategies, tactics, and weapons were designed to be effective against traditional conservatives and people who have accepted their framing of social issues.

By and large they are playing by the rules of the game that have more or less been accepted by everyone in the mainstream on both left and right since the 60s- diversity is good, racism and sexism are bad, equality is an unquestionable good, and all the various conventions that have come to make up what is considered the modern progressive dogma.

Traditional conservatives, foolishly accepting the progressive framing of morality, are constantly on the defensive will never be able to out left the left and are stuck trying to explain why their position is more moral in a time when everybody is shifting left from them. This is why traditional mainstream conservatives cannot, and will not win the culture war.

It is in such an environment where liberals, now victorious as the new mainstream moral majority have made themselves into the cultural establishment. It is in this cultural establishment that modern progressives, feminists and SJWs patrol and carry out their various forms of cultural policing and politicking for higher positions in the liberal hierarchy. The traditional right is not a threat because the methods to contain them are established.

But the victory of the left sowed the seeds of the Red Pill movement that would eventually burst out into a fully-fledged social insurgency that would prove to be immune to most of the traditional weapons that the left could bring to bear in the battlefield of ideas.

This social insurgency was unlike what the progressive establishment was used to fighting- there were no central figures to take down in a classic decapitation strike and what few figures that appeared to be important were just riding the wave of the insurgency as opposed to guiding it. While there were many differing strands of ideology within the insurgency, several contradictory at times they were all united and focused in their common goal of taking down the left.

The traditional tools of suppressing ideological opponents by drawing from the traditional rhetorical toolbox of calling them racists and sexists didn’t work, drawing dismissive derision instead of capitulation.

This social insurgency was also fast and nimble, being able to quickly react to changing circumstances and put out memes and counter-memes much faster than what their mainstream opponents could do while the progressives were at a loss to finding something that could work.

The energy was infectious, as it gained momentum more people joined the insurgency or supported it quietly from the sidelines, seeing it as something that could finally deal damage against the progressive juggernaut that previously seemed untouchable.

While all this was happening the progressive response was confused and muddled, unsure of how to respond to a new and deadly threat that was unlike anything they had seen before. Worse, the politicking in their own ranks prevented them from forming a unified response with a good deal of energy being wasted on infighting.

The progressives were fighting yesterday’s war while the insurgency is fighting from the future. The progressive narrative was maintained by vested interests in existing structures by virtue of being the establishment and hence intrinsically tied to defending them while the insurgency was free to move and strike and will.

While the progressives are spread out defending a massive memeplex of ideas in all areas of mainstream public thought the insurgents could focus on individual areas and attack them in strength, cycling through many different methods of assault while possessing few apparent weaknesses that their opponents can exploit.

All this wasn’t apparent at first, as in their arrogance progressives have assumed themselves to be the endpoint of history and did not foresee a effective large-scale challenge to their stranglehold on mainstream ideological space. It wasn’t until a series of stunning defeats to the liberal narrative did they realise that the barbarians are sacking Rome.

It is in this battlefield that you, the social insurgent find yourself now. You are part of a global reactionary movement to save your culture against the extinction of regressive progressivism that has made several key victories recently. While these victories are encouraging more work still needs to be done.

The progressive narrative has been dealt several heavy blows recently but it remains dangerous. It is now fully aware of the threat the social insurgency poses and more likely that not will become more effective in tackling the insurgency. There is no time to rest and every social insurgent needs to move fast.

The new culture wars have started, and things are about to get real interesting in the coming years.
