Due to the sensitive nature of this blog’s topic, I thought it would be useful to have an anonymous “ask me anything” form.
If you any of you are facing a frustrating problem but don’t wish to reveal your identity, this is the place to ask. Your question will be posted anonymously below after I answer it. Not even I will know your identity.
Since predicting the future is all the rage nowadays, I thought it’d be fun to give it a go myself.
I see three important trends:
- Labor will be replaced by machines
- Men will choose sex robots over women
- The blogosphere and social media will determine what people think
Trends #1 and #3 are already happening. Trend #2 hasn’t come to fruition yet.
Each of these trends corresponds with the three most important responsibilities of a man:
- Financial Provision
- Marriage and “Conjugal Rights”
- Spiritual Leadership
Whoever owns the labor-replacing machines or the assets that the machines work on will become rich. Everyone else will be out of work.
The government will tax these wealthy corporations and give handouts to the unemployed. The government already knows, from the socialist experiments they did with the American Indians, that giving men free money kills a man’s motivation. The Indian men of old were fighters. But force them onto reservations, give them just enough provision to make work unnecessary, and slowly kill his spirit. Indian men of today are aimless, drunk, depressed, and suicidal.
Like the emasculated Indian, the majority of men will passively settle into their Reservation 2.0 lifestyle. The government will provide (just enough) income for their housing, groceries, and cheap entertainment. They will have access to an abundance of porn and will be provided with several sex robots to relieve and amuse themselves with. They will lose all interest in real women.
The toxins in the environment and government supplied food continue to lower men’s testosterone, ensuring that they will not be a threat to the powers that be. They will not fight. They will not reproduce. They will not strive. They will be passive and harmless. Useful only for voting.
Meanwhile, women pine after the (precious few) remaining high-testosterone men. Since the vast majority of men are now undesirable, “open relationships” becomes the norm. Women would rather share an alpha than be forced to pair with an omega.
Mainstream Christianity is forced to respond to this crisis. Not wanting to completely abandon the institution of marriage, they quickly approve polygamy as a viable marriage option in order to appease the demands of women. Meanwhile, they continue to preach against “toxic masculinity” while downplaying or excusing the woman’s sins of adultery and promiscuity. Thus Christianity adapts its own form of “open relationships” under the guise of upholding marriage.
The traditional churches that hold to monogamy quickly decline into extinction. The alpha males leave to attend pro-polygamy churches. The women refuse to marry the remaining omega males. Thus the congregation fails to reproduce itself and dies off.
The sexual marketplace tilts heavily in favor of (masculine) men. Paradoxically, government-funded propaganda and agendas continue to vilify and attack men… further increasing the divide between the undesirable soy boys and sexy alphas. The sexual hierarchy moves towards extreme bifurcation: alpha or omega. The semi-desirable “beta bucks” become a thing of the past.
The alpha man becomes the coveted prize of women. He will have his pick of women. Naturally, only the most attractive women will be considered worthy of breeding. Most children will be born out of wedlock. The majority of bastard sons will grow up to join the ranks of the undesirable omegas. The bastard daughters will grow up to “ride the cock carousel” until they burn out and settle into a life as a miserable single mother. This process ensures that future alphas have a fresh supply of disposable women to use for their pleasure.
A minority of these bastardized children will seek and find Wisdom and escape this viscious cycle.
The only lineages that will have a chance of surviving are those born in wedlock. Polygamous men will out-breed monogamous men, further cementing the church’s “temporary” decision into the culture.
Christian married men are constantly attacked. Polygamous Muslim immigrants are welcomed and encouraged (?). The battle for Western civilization comes down to a breeding war.
The risks of marriage for men become increasingly higher. Many eligible men will opt-out, counting the cost to be too high. Thus the number of marriageable men becomes even lower than the number of “datable” men.
Even among the men who marry, many of them fail their dynastic quest. Some become emasculated after marriage. Some get greedy and take on more wives than they can manage. Some sire more children than they can properly discipline.
Technologically, the world looks different. Information is passed on through computers that seamlessly integrate into every part of our life. People no longer rely on discrete units of information such as books, sermons, lectures, etc. Everything is a stream of information, like a Facebook or Twitter feed. Corporations and government agencies spend big bucks to earn the attention of the masses through these streams. But they are too stupid to figure out how to do it. Social media requires interesting, personality-driven information.
Unable to earn the attention of the masses, the government resorts to buying the platforms and restricting speech that runs against the narrative they wish to propagate. This leads to the bifurcation of “approved” platforms and “alternative” platforms. Once again, this only serves to further divide the population, with the majority receiving only the government-approved messages and the minority feeding on a completely different information stream. Low-class men are practically shut off from the truth. Only the most motivated truth seekers find a way out.
Preachers are practically irrelevant now. They still exist, but it’s more ceremonial than practical. When they preach, they only echo and reinforce what’s being said on mainstream social media and perhaps tack on a Bible verse for good measure. Some preachers attempt to stick to traditional theological sermons, but their comparatively dull sermons are quickly drowned out by the sea of daily “infotainment” coming at the congregants on their social media feeds. Seminary students are simply not prepared to preach in the age of social media.
This isn’t to say that the gospel isn’t preached. The Kingdom of God continues to advance. But evangelism looks quite different in this future world.
And there will only be a few men left to do it.
My wife and I have been rewatching one of our favorite comedy TV shows, 3rd Rock from the Sun.
The premise is that a group of outer space aliens assumes human bodies in order research life on planet Earth. The “politically incorrect” jokes that were allowed to air back in the late ’90s is a testament to how much our culture has changed in such a short time.
Here are a few of the classic zingers on gender:
Dick: Sally, I want you to observe her, find out what women on this planet do.
Sally: Why can’t Harry do it?
Dick: Because you’re the woman.
Sally: That brings up a very good question: why am I the woman?
Dick: Because you lost.
Sally: Dick, women are trouble. I should know! I’ve been one for two weeks!
Dick: I know, which brings up another point. I command you to shave under your arms.
Sally: Doable. I’m sorry you find me so offensive (tears up)
Dick: Dammit! Pull yourself together, man! We’re going out.
Sally: Ok, give me an hour.
Dick: An hour?
Sally: I got to rotate these (indicating breasts). It’s a party!
Harry: Women. You can’t live with ’em, and yet they’re everywhere.
Tommy: Sally, you’re amazing. As sick as you are, you keep taking care of us.
Sally: Yeah, I know. I don’t understand. All I want to do is curl up into a ball, and yet somehow I feel compelled to nurture you. God, what a cruel disease!
Sally: You just can’t imagine what it feels like, Dick. It’s like he reached in… and pulled all the bones out of my body… [starts crying]
Dick: My God, what are you doing?
Sally: [wipes her tears] Apparently I’m leaking!
Dick: Well, stop!
Nina: I knew you had a thing for her.
Dick: Yes, but I understand I’m not allowed to show it to her without her permission.
Gender comedy has changed. It used to be about poking fun at the difficulties of being (and living with) a woman. Nowadays, it’s about the difficulty women face dealing with their idiot husbands.
I recently saw the latest Pixar movie Coco with my wife.
I found the movie to be a refreshing contrast from the normal deluge of anti-male Disney propaganda.
The protagonist is a 12-year old boy (I know, shocker) who grows up in an oppressive matriarchy. The boy wants to be a musician like his great-grandfather, but his grandmother says his grandfather was a bad man who abandoned his family. And to make sure the family is never hurt again, she forbids any enjoyment of music.
But the boy cannot suppress his gift/love for music and continues to secretly practice his guitar.
Then, through a series of events, he ends up being sucked into the “Land of the Dead” where he goes on a quest to find the truth about his great-grandfather.
I won’t give any spoilers, but the resolution was refreshingly pro-male (or at least not anti-male) and pro-family.
This got me thinking…
Most Disney movies follow some variation of the “follow your heart” theme.
It seems that, in most stories, when a boy “follows his heart” it usually involves something like finding the truth about a missing father or ancestor, finding a lost treasure, doing something risky to save others, etc.
But when a girl “follows her heart” it typically involves rebelling against her parents and seeking a high-status position that is normally occupied by men.
This got me wondering if it would be possible to have a story structure that had the same appeal of Disney movies, but without the feminist rebellion theme.
I think it is possible, and it might look something like this:
- A child (boy or girl) has a unique gift that makes him/her different or is slow to “come of age” like the rest of the children
- The child faces ridicule and other difficulties due to being different from everyone else
- The parents (and particularly the father) help the child come to terms with his/her identity
- The child faces a test of courage
- The child passes the test and contributes to the greater good of the community.
I think stories like that would be just as compelling, if not more so, then the normal deluge of “girl power” narratives. And it would place the parents in an honorable role without making the story boring and devoid of drama.
Just some thoughts. Maybe one day the Disney empire will finally crumble and children’s movies can be redeemed…
Tried to log into my blog the other day from a library computer.
My site was blocked for “pornography.”
I guess Bible study just reached a new level of excitement.
