I think it’s about time for a manifesto.
Every man needs a personal philosophy to live by. A manifesto answers two important questions:
- What is wrong with your culture?
- How are you going to live differently?
You’re welcome to agree or disagree with my manifesto. At the least, you will better understand my worldview and decide if I’m worth reading. Perhaps it will inspire you to write your own manifesto.
Here are my 6 points of difference:
1. Actually give a f*ck about a problem
Apathy is the great killer of men today.
Most men make no effort to make a difference in the world they live in.
Forget finding your “passion.”
Just find a problem you care enough about to get off your ass and do something about it.
2. Build your own tiny little kingdom
Western culture may or may not collapse.
The mission is not to “save Western culture.” The future is in antifragile micro-kingdoms.
Build biblical culture, leveraging the advantages afforded by Western culture while there’s still time.
Rule your household like a tiny kingdom. And, if you have the ambition, build your own tribe of like-minded people.
The various traditions of Western culture will survive or die on their own through stress testing.
It is biblical culture that will win in the end.
3. Plant trees
A young man can hit his peak at about 40 years old. A 40 year old man can complete his greatest work at 70+ years old.
Don’t demand immediate results from life. Plant seeds. Establish habits, share vision, build a body of work over time.
Urgent problems are normally an illusion. If it won’t matter in 10 years, it’s not important.
All that matters is that you make progress towards becoming the man you want to be.
4. Hypergamy is a design feature, not a flaw
Every quality that a woman instinctively finds attractive can be acquired through training. (Height being the only exception.)
Quit whining about hypergamy. Recognize it for what it is. Grow up and become a man.
5. Feminine desire is the biological blueprint
A woman has needs and desires. A man rises to the occasion to fill the hole. (insert laugh track here)
If you want to know what it takes to be a man, understand the most primal instincts of a woman. Women are not an “unsolvable mystery.” All their behaviors serve a biological purpose. Learn those purposes and position yourself accordingly.
You cannot rationally explain to a woman why she needs to behave a certain way. You need to master her imagination and appeal to her instincts.
6. Risk-taking is the only safe path
We deceive ourselves by thinking that regularity implies safety.
Having a “steady job” appears to be safe… until you get laid off.
Surrounding yourself with people who believe the same as you appears safe… until reality proves your beliefs wrong.
Being compliant appears safe… until compliant people are no longer needed.
Not saying you need to start your own business or unplug from normal society. But you do need to assume that everything you depend on will one day collapse and plan accordingly.
The only safe path in today’s world is learning to survive and thrive in uncertain conditions.
