7 Reasons Why American Culture Is The Most Degenerate In The World

If we wanted to measure the morality of a culture, what would be the best way to do so? Some may suggest looking at statistics of crime or drug use. Others would tell you to look at divorce rates, church participation, or births that take place out-of-wedlock. Many of these would provide a good clue as to the health of a culture, but even some atheists would agree that a thorough measure would be to stack up the culture against the seven deadly sins, which were introduced into the Christian faith to help its adherents avoid sin. If you use this yardstick on American culture, it’s hard not to conclude that it is indeed the most degenerate in the world.

1. Lust

Lust or lechery is an intense desire. It is a general term for desire. Therefore lust could involve the intense desire of money, food, fame, power, or sex.

sluts1

Right now, there are thousands of intelligent teenage boys who dream of becoming a rock star instead of a doctor or engineer. There are teenage girls uploading selfies to Facebook and Instagram in the hopes of gaining attention instead of seeking out a good man in her prime fertile years. There are morbidly obese individuals stuffing their face with food made dense with sugar and fat even though their body does not require it. There are men whose lives revolve around the accumulation of material possessions or status badges to impress women who have been trained to become drawn into anything that shines or sparkles.

The foundation of America is held up by the five pillars of lust: money, food, fame, power, and sex. These vices have been monetized by multi-national corporations to ensure they get a slice of the pie in your destructive journey towards moral abasement. There is no other country in the world that makes lust such a daily and all-encompassing feature of life than America.

2. Gluttony

…over-indulgent and over-consumption of anything to the point of waste… it could also include an obsessive anticipation of meals, and the constant eating of delicacies and excessively costly foods.

Hot-Dog-Eating-Contest-At-001

America is the fattest developed country in the world. Over half of the population is medically overweight with no concern on how this affects their appearance and what it says about their character. People eat when they are not hungry, and then they eat some more, the richest and most unhealthy foods that have ever bee constructed. They look in the mirror and instead of accepting that they’ve transmorphed into a monstrosity of a human being, they scream at you for shaming them and pointing out their horrendous gluttony. They’re actually healthy, we’re told, even though their immense carriage prevents them from fitting in a standard airplane seat.

Self-control is becoming so rare that those who have it could likely be diagnosed as having obsessive-compulsive disorder. You only live once, they say, so the rule is to seek out your fleeting moment of happiness in a large piece of chocolate cake, after you’ve already eaten a meal fit for two.

3. Greed

…a very excessive or rapacious desire and pursuit of material possessions… greed is an inordinate desire to acquire or possess more than one needs, especially with respect to material wealth

greedgood

Americans don’t judge themselves based on their experience and knowledge—they judge themselves based on theirs possessions. They proudly display their newest gadget, their fancy car, or the latest fashion, but even with these objects, they become quickly disappointed and feel compelled to make another trip to the mall or Amazon.com. They seek to gain more and more, racing with their peers to be the most mindless and robotic with their consumption, hoping corporate products fill their empty lives.

They want to feel rich and important through objects they can touch and show to others, not through any wisdom they’ve attained from living life deliberately. Their lives are dedicated not to making a positive difference, not to leaving this world with something that helps the next generation, but leaving behind a McMansion full of crap. Americans don’t work to live—they work to stuff their home with Chinese-made products that no one will want after they die.

4. Sloth

While sloth is sometimes defined as physical laziness, spiritual laziness is emphasized.

Sloth has also been defined as a failure to do things that one should do.

slots

Americans work long hours in their cubicle job so that they can spend most of their time off with mindless, loony pursuits. A man or woman in their prime will slave away 50 hours a week in a job to buy things they don’t need and entertain themselves with electronics, trendy dining, and fornication. Only after many continuous years of pursuing nonstop fornication have I realized that it was not the path to personal fulfillment that I thought (but it was a path to the truth I attempt to speak now).

You may laugh at my incorrect assumption, but what else can you expect when the American women I interacted with actually preferred casual sexual encounters that wouldn’t interfere with their career and busy social calendar? Thankfully, my satisfying mini-relationships with foreign women who have not yet been corrupted by American culture has shown me a different path, planting a seed within me to pursue more meaning.

One additional symptom of sloth is entitlement. Is there any other people more entitled than Americans? If you were to distill their mentality in only one word, it would simply be “Gimme!” They believe they are deserving of all the good in life without the introspection, analysis, and strenuous individual labor that success requires. Only in America do you have people majoring in the most childish of majors like communications, sociology, art history, or psychology and then expecting to live out the American dream with a car, apartment, and daily Frappucino habit after wasting four years learning something that you or I could achieve in 3 months with a few trips to the local bookstore. An American is someone who walks on a treadmill for 5 minutes a day on the slowest setting and then wonders why they don’t have a rock-hard six pack and bulging biceps.

5. Wrath

…inordinate and uncontrolled feelings of hatred or anger. Wrath, in its purest form, presents with self-destructiveness.

bigred

Why do Americans pursue a life of nonstop gluttony, sloth, and lust? Because they believe these vices will provide them with the happiness and meaning they want. But of course it doesn’t, and the only response left for them is the anger and rage of not feeling spiritual or existential fulfillment after becoming a slave to their most primitive and hedonistic desires. Consider that the term “hate reading” was invented in America, where millions of empty people seek out articles that they know will anger them just to feel alive for a few minutes and fill the remaining void left over from their already incessant pursuit of distraction. You can easily view their anger every day on Youtube and Liveleak—videos of public meltdowns, fights, and violence in public places that started for the most trivial of reasons that they were emotionally incapable of brushing off like a well-balanced adult.

An American’s sanity is hanging by a thread, one step away from a full-blown breakdown, of yelling at the Starbucks barista, of attacking someone who stepped on their shoe, or of outright shooting someone with a handgun because of a traffic incident. This is in spite of the fact that Americans are the most medicated in the world with millions of anti-depressant and anti-anxiety pills swallowed every day. A significant percentage of the population needs pharmaceutical chemicals just to keep their rage subdued, just to get through yet another day, and that’s not even enough to keep them sane.

6. Envy

Envy is similar to jealous in that they both feel discontent towards someone’s traits, status, abilities, and rewards.

jante

If you want an American to hate you, simply succeed in life. No other country breeds people with such feelings of inferiority to think that another person’s success is their personal failure, as if everything in life is zero-sum. In fact, the phrase “Keeping up with the Jones’” originated in America as a direct result of our envious view upon our neighbor. Envy is a core American value and has been for several generations. Even your family, your flesh and blood, has been poisoned by this mentality and much rather see you stumble than to see you break free from the chains of existential mediocrity to achieve your maximum potential.

While envy is definitely a common human trait, consider that in Scandinavia they possess a cultural code called Jante Law (pictured above) which forbids it. Whether it works or not is up for debate, but they’re at least attempting to subdue it. America, on the other hand, encourages it with a culture of “hating” where every little action of our celebrities, no matter how minor, is placed under the microscope to be ridiculed and mocked. Only in America has envy actually been monetized to the tune of a multi-billion dollar celebrity gossip industry, so profitable because the most reliable way for Americans to feel better about themselves is to see someone fall on their face. Genuine self-improvement is much harder than merely laughing at the misfortune of others.

7. Pride

It is identified as believing that one is essentially better than others, failing to acknowledge the accomplishments of others, and excessive admiration of the personal self.

selfie

Mirror mirror on the wall, tell me who is the most narcissistic of them all. Tell me who can’t stop themselves from taking a million selfies, from attention whoring all hours of the day, from talking about themselves as if the sun orbited around their center, who exaggerate all accomplishments and brag about the most minor of achievements, who think running a 5k is a noble duty, who eat at fancy new restaurants as a way to brag to their friends, who look down on those who don’t have the right job or the right clothes or the right gadgets, who believe that the laws of human nature can be defeated with Botox and that they are the most unique snowflake of them all. Please tell me who this person is!

The mirror replies: “The American is the most self-important of them all, who really believe they are exceptional, who believe they are the royalty of modern humanity, who believe their actions warrant nothing in the way of careful thought and whose mere presence should be met with rousing applause.”

Can you name a culture more degenerate than America? Because if you can, I’d like to hear it. I’ve been to over 25 countries and haven’t found one that matches the degeneracy of the West, and the two that come closest, Canada and England, will never rise up to match it. If anything, they are a low fidelity copy of the worst that America has created and nurtured in the past 50 years, a complete abandonment of what it takes to be a virtuous human being. America is a country who trains its subjects to embrace every sin every single day of their lives.

I don’t believe in God, but if I did I would pray every night that He destroys American culture, a soul-sucking leech on over 300 million human beings and countless more outside its borders, a demon that is enslaving human beings to feed their darkest urges and bottomless pits of narcissism, to obsessing over Chinese products and mindless nonstop entertainment, to worshiping at the alter of the government instead of the family, to creating helpless zombies instead of self-reliant individuals, and to equating homosexuality with normality. Please God, let this culture be devoured, even if it means an age of darkness where we must learn from scratch how to be good again.

    “No-one really knows how it was in the beginning. We have only speculation and theories. The Truth will likely never be known. Whether we find the Truth or not, has very little bearing on the nature of that Truth itself, for it exists unto itself. It exists completely separate from whether we discover it, or whether we even have the capabilities to find it, and so on.

    Absolute Truth exists. It does not need us. We serve it, not the other way around. The Absolute Truth is the beginning and the end. It is never changing. It is what it is. It was here before us, and it will be here after us.”

    God is destroying America, or rather sin is destroying it. The nature of sin is that it is a distortion or super-sizing of an impulse, just as cancer is the untrammelled growth of cells; and sin, like cancer, destroys and degrades. This means that where sin is rampant decadence sets in and destruction surely follows. Countervailing virtues can stop this process but Western culture now is by definition against the cultivation of virtue. Self-control, modesty, discipline, respect, empathy, compassion, hard work- these things get laughed at avoided in today’s culture.

    So what the Bible warned is now becoming reality- the wages of sin is death. The family is dying, learning is dying, real economic activity (making stuff) is dying, communities are dying, and we are mostly not even reproducing at population-replacement rate. That is dire but these religions offered well defined heuristic wisdom (see Taleb) which we chose to ignore and now we are paying the cost.

    The question is are we doomed? Is there a way back? Do societies recover from decadence? Do we perhaps need an external shock to make us realize what we have lost and to get us to change our ways? Or do we have the inner reserves to change by ourselves? I am not optimistic.

    American culture was destroyed by design. Actually the US was the first society which had unprecedented freedom and opportunities for the common man. Most people in the world could only dream of those things going back to the 19th century right until the 1970s or 80s.
    My take is that the plutocracy found the libertarian model working all too well. Such a society creates constant competition for the establishment and way too rebellious individuals. (Remember the interest-free money movements in the 1930s in the US? No? No surprise – they wiped that clean off from the history books.) So they found that a freedom-giving republic works and the “peasants” do very well in such a system creating prosperity and stability for everyone. But of course we can’t have that if we want to stay on top of the peasants.

    After 2-3 generations the greatest country on Earth is completely destroyed via the tools of propaganda by media and academia and toxic food, drink and medicine. We can only blame people that they let themselves be manipulated so easily by smarter more powerful psychopathic predators while still mumbling: “But they would not do this, would they?” They would and they did.

    The sad thing is that too many Americans are too deep in these 7 Deadly Sins.

    I went through a phase where I discovered the truth and unplugged and tried to preach to others about it. Some were receptive to it and simply nodded their heads mindlessly. Some lashed out and said that the conversation was “too negative” and that I should talk about something positive…Like I don’t know…some cat video or the latest sports update.

    I’m done. If no one cares then we get what we deserve. I’ll do the best I can for myself and others who can see through all the filth but I believe our culture is beyond salvaging.

    Doubtful that it will get that bad. You also need a large middle class, multiculturalism and radical leftists controlling all major universities and media. It can certainly get worse, but America’s geographic position, extreme economic success and unique history made it what it is.

    No need to be so doom and gloom. Most people mature slowly or die from stupidity. You missed the 80′s. It was far more oversexed than now. Just look at Porky’s, Fast Times, Last American Virgin.

    Things are definitely bad, but I shudder to think what the world would look like with China and/or Russia as the dominant powers.

  • Zelcorpion

    Exactly. It is just a superior form of money creation. It would still have to be backed by the productivity of the citizens and enterprises. Another form is JAK-bank style interest-free real estate credit. You still need to be able to work and save to get the credit under sound financial rules.

    But all those things would ultimately take away the financial advantage of the current ruling class and we can’t have that.

    BTW – there are some local interest free money movements, but anything gaining too much traction would likely be banned. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ithaca_Hours.

    Great post. You did a marvelous job of showing how American culture has been corrupted or afflicted by the seven deadly sins to the extent to become the most degenerate culture in the world.

    But as someone who has traveled and experienced women from different cultures as myself, I have seen almost all cultures afflicted by degeneracy in some form of the other. We could possibly blame American globalization of its culture through TV and media for that. Pride, envy, wrath, sloth, greed and gluttony can be seen in some form or the other abroad too, even if it is not the same extent as in America. I’ve experienced lazy people in Europe, envious women (almost everywhere), wrathful people in poor countries, slothful people in Asia, greedy people almost everywhere. The only undisputed thing for which America probably has no competition with the world, is however in gluttony. That’s why it’s the fattest developed country in the world.

    Almost all parts of the world are afflicted with the sin of lust. You must’ve seen in your travels throughout the world, as I have seen it in my life as myself. I have bedded lusty women in supposedly ‘traditional’ and ‘feminine’ societies who slept with me looking for a ‘relationship’. The difference was – women in the West tend to tell you upfront on the face they’re seeking casual sex, whereas women elsewhere even if they want to have sex with you casually, need to rationalize it to you as to themselves that they’re sleeping with you in in the name of ‘love’ or a ‘relationship’. As I look at it, (or realized this truth later), essentially foreign born women were just more manipulative or more discreet at hiding this ‘degeneracy’ behind the facade of ‘love’ and ‘relationship’. You will learn this in a few years, with more time spent abroad dating foreign women, as I did. This is the truth in Europe and CIS, Asia, Latin America, or even supposedly repressed societies like that of the Middle east.

    You see the bar and nightlife culture popping up everywhere in the world.And as men we know what degeneracy bars and nightlife promotes.

    A culture’s degeneracy when it comes to lust does not occur when lust is introduced into it; but it rather becomes degenerate when the inherent lust in women in those societies and cultures is unleashed (or allowed to unleash itself) in the name of casual sex, social customs, prostitution, ‘love’, or ‘relationships’. Either way, as a man, one can’t stop laughing internally at these reasons what women throughout the world use, to justify sleeping around.

    But in America or the Anglo world, it’s indeed the worst, since women don’t have to use the word ‘love’ or ‘relationships’ to fuck around anymore, as much as women elsewhere. They can shamelessly slut around looking for casual encounters, without any social backlash, as the culture itself promotes it. Slutting around might even be the case with foreign women, who’d atleast mask their slutting around in the name of ‘love’ and ‘relationships’. That’ why America is indeed the most degenerate culture when it comes to sex, and American men thus have no option but to travel elsewhere to more ‘traditional’ societies to escape this degeneracy, as many have already done.

  • Acehole

    I agree. Russia and China would mismanage the world much worse than the US.

    From an economic standpoint, the US is not quite as indispensable in world economics as it once was. Not by a long shot. The US is falling, while the rest of the world is comparatively rising. The rest of the world is still a shithole, but it’s comparatively much better than it was 50 years ago. The US is not economically better than it was 50 years ago. Eventually, the US will reach a point where the standard of living for the average person is similar to that of other countries. This may take a while, perhaps several decades. However, at the rate in which we are squandering the economic gains of the last 70 years, it may happen sooner. The super rich in this country will continue to get richer as they whore-out and exploit the dwindling natural resources and human capital still available. Nothing new under the sun.

    21st century economics will belong to a collection of other countries. The US will certainly play it’s role, but it will cease to be THE dominant player. Many fools in this country still believe we are the same group of people that won WW2. This could not be farther from the truth. The economic and social conditions that existed after WW2 and that led to America’s rise are simply no longer present. WW2 was a long time ago; 2 full generations. The US will never be that strong ever again. The economic expansion that occurred after WW2 is ancient history at this point. It will not happen again anytime soon; barring reconstruction after WW3, if in fact such a war ever occurs at all.

  • ‘Reality’ Doug

    That does not explain the Dark Ages of Christendom, when Jews had a monopoly on lending (debt slavery). The 7 sins were statist oppression, church was state. Getting away from that statism and mysticism is what causes the Age of Discovery, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment. Truth can be bent to fortify lies that are correct enough for the masses, but only the truth is the truth. I don’t admit Christianity was edifying as it was restraining, since what I call edification requires freedom from mental bondage to other men and women. It is not that Christianity is the Truth, but that to survive as a meme complex, truth was required, as well as non-truth, both to be popular/viable. I think we should not sit on our laurels and think we know The Truth with such tidy answers. If we did rest on tidy answers, there would be no Red Pill Theory of the Female Mind, and thank God there is!

    I would mistake it for socialism. If it isn’t socialism it soon will be (or correct me). With the ‘investment’ mechanism in place, I think Gresham’s law applies: badder credit drives out gooder credit. I don’t think credit is ever good unless there is risk to all parties involved and none who are not. I call that investing, and investing should carry full risk to its participants because life does. With real deflation (expanding wealth supply, dropping prices), it would not be hard to start a business from saved wages in one’s free time. With this much technology, 20-hour weeks are very feasible for a middle class lifestyle.

    True, but ftw. I am more concerned about my potential and the best human potential. I don’t give a fuck about savages and sheep doing better because that is not the point. When the Carthagenians first colonized to make Carthage, the natives were better off with bribes, but then they became slaves. When Spaniards inadvertently repopulated horses in the New World, Amerinds benefited from the ‘technology’, but it was for a limited time because wild horses were only a byproduct of the expansion of white civilization over their haunts. We are not one in shared results. Evolution and life don’t work that way. I wish people would let that go and instead make a difference for real with the mature masculine understanding that to make an omelet requires breaking a few eggs. If white people must be broken to become wholesome, so be it. I say that as a white man. I sure as hell don’t care about preserving stone age virtues in the other shades any more. We need the process. We need the crucible. Sad but true.

  • ‘Reality’ Doug

    Show me, don’t tell me. If you can’t put it into a nutshell, you don’t have an understanding that is credible. I gave my take which references falsifiable facts: Jews with usury license per the Vatican, the timing of the growth surge in art, science, and wealth. If you have a non-emotional argument based on facts that is convincing, I’d love to hear it. I don’t love my truth, I love aligning myself with truth. Oneupsmanship is a social norm that Red Pill has taught me, but I don’t think it is fitting for civilized patriarchs, so I am not living by it here for sure. I come here to be my natural self, not a relativist clown. I am not emotionally attached to my beliefs. I have even abandoned searching for knowledge for its own sake, because I need practical answers now. My future is already here and I want results. Anyway, if you can enlighten me for real, I am all for it.

    4 – Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “‘Come out of her, my people,’ so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues;

    5 – for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes.

    6 – Give back to her as she has given; pay her back double for what she has done. Pour her a double portion from her own cup.

    7 – Give her as much torment and grief as the glory and luxury she gave herself. In her heart she boasts, ‘I sit enthroned as queen. I am not a widow; I will never mourn.’

    8 – Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.

    9 – “When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her.

    10 – Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry: “‘Woe! Woe to you, great city, you mighty city of Babylon! In one hour your doom has come!’

    11 – “The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes anymore–

    12 – cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble;

    13 – cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and carriages; and human beings sold as slaves.

    14 – “They will say, ‘The fruit you longed for is gone from you. All your luxury and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.’

    15 – The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off, terrified at her torment. They will weep and mourn

    16 – and cry out: “‘Woe! Woe to you, great city, dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet, and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls!

    17 – In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!’ “Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off.

    18 – When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, ‘Was there ever a city like this great city?’

    19 – They will throw dust on their heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out: “‘Woe! Woe to you, great city, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth! In one hour she has been brought to ruin!’

    20 – “Rejoice over her, you heavens! Rejoice, you people of God! Rejoice, apostles and prophets! For God has judged her with the judgment she imposed on you.”

    21Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone and threw it into the sea, and said: “With such violence the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again.

    22 – The music of harpists and musicians, pipers and trumpeters, will never be heard in you again. No worker of any trade will ever be found in you again. The sound of a millstone will never be heard in you again.

    23 – The light of a lamp will never shine in you again. The voice of bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again. Your merchants were the world’s important people. By your magic spell all the nations were led astray.

    24 – In her was found the blood of prophets and of God’s holy people, of all who have been slaughtered on the earth.”

    That’s not what it is; it’s the inverse of Usury.

    The present credit system literally creates more debt than there is money to pay it back; social credit balances that out by creating excess currency (with a specified number based upon the rate of lending), but rather than giving that ‘inflationary’ money to the private banking interests, it gives it to the society, paying for roads and infrastructure.

    It’s mathematically sound; incorruptible? Hardly.

    There are two divergences from the original truth of God versus pagan satanism. One line is the egyptian mysteries which then led to Christ, Judaism and Islam. The other line led to Hinduism, Buddhism and other spiritual religions. The truth is that God exists in opposition to satan and almost all religions feature the tree of life, snakes(serpents) and a saviour at the end. They are more similar in regards to the main things.

    By the way, the big secret is that the sect wants to control and destroy the human race after merging the descendents of Noah as in the days of Babylon. To destroy after merging the descendents of Shem (semites, who are arabian and asian/east asian), Japheth (europeans and some asians) and Ham (africans). This is why we see the things we do today, as our economic and other systems are reengineered to enslave us. Also, this is why the culture has been corrupted, along with the women, most of who take the shape of their containing culture. Their religious laws have become our laws and the economy is based on their religious beliefs. Everything has been corrupted.

    I know that the UK will burn. They genocide arabs abroad, getting Christians killed in the process. They genocide whites at home by proxy via abortion and then, when families are broken up by women and the legal system, the political space is manipulated to be filled up by immigrants who then become unwitting slaves to a policy designed to genocide whites. But people just carry on, distracted by their iphones and entertainments – because only 10% of people of any population group have any capacity for long-term thinking as opposed to pattern recognition and follow-my-leader of the other 90%.

    The UK can only support 20 million people with the goods we can produce domestically. The government says our population is 64 million, whilst the agriculture businesses say it is 85 million, based on food consumption. We have offshored all industry. Our survival and living standard is based on a ponzi economy that relies on wars and exploitation abroad. The people can never revolt. Not only are they unarmed, but if they rebel, the bankers will kill the economy and our population will eventually drop to 20 million, which is all we can provide for domestically, since the bankers own all businesses. If we do not rebel. the bankers will ensure everyone becomes increasingly enslaved to them and people will one day soon become de-facto slaves. Most british folk will be ‘replaced’ by cheaper slaves, who themselves will be ‘replaced’. So the people are damned either way – not that they’d rebel; they are too addicted to an easy life and the state, they are unarmed and they are weak. The next time the economy goes down, they will be made economic slaves very quickly. The divide-and-conquer strategy also ensures that a small group can maintain dominance over the larger mass who will never group together because of ideological differences.

    People just work to make toilet paper money to buy things they don’t need to impress people they barely like. All their taxes are used to fund wars abroad, and their own enslavement and destruction at home. All the while, they are fed indoctrination which they heartily take on board as ‘culture’ or ‘empowerment’ which causes them to do self-destructive things. If this is not satanism, I don’t know what is. A poor farmer in another country can provide for himself and is harder to make a slave than 99%+ of the west, who are enslaved to the economy that provides (and soon will not provide) for them, enslaved to their gadgets and enslaved to their living standard and collectivized society. If I were a wicked dictator, I could more easily enslave the west than some poor third-world country.

    That translates to unsound as far as I can tell. Taxation should be explicit and personal, otherwise the churls do nothing before it’s too late. A free market of violence, of ideas, of law–i.e. the absence of a monopoly (not saying the absence of delegatory institutional government)–is critical. Any contempt appropriate for Chris Dorner, Anders Breivek, Elliot Rodger,…is typically from people with clean hands who do nothing and deserve greater contempt. There is no eliminating the crucible of life. We either participate or are helpless. Those who participate define the nature of the crucible. The state should not define fiat money or define or back credit. Let the state fail so the people can delegate a new one having the lesson of hindsight. The greatest sinners have clean hands but dirty hearts. There is no such thing as a Sheeple’s republic. I know I will see way off topic on this reply, but I believe the crux of most social issues is practical philsophy. I think blue pill terminology lingers and we oft will build from it having already lost. I don’t know if blue pill is ever eliminated from those who have lived it. I’m not Christian, but there is the idea that Moses et al. wandered until they died so the Israelietes could get a clean start. Then they accepted a king minted by the Zadok/Sadduccee money priests. That was the real story. We need to be severe in choosing our vocabulary. (Cf. Analects 13:3) Yah, I approve this message.

Think of all the sweat and capitol required to build all of this up, and to see it all in ruin and desolation from insane levels of evil and violence won’t make all the problems disappear. turning from evil and vice towards virtue is the answer not wholesale mutilation.

    Excellent post, one thought that came to mind while reading this is when you wrote “If you want an American to hate you, simply succeed in life.” Instantly I thought about how there is two different kinds of people: One, that when a peer becomes successful thinks ” Great job! I can’t wait to see what I can do!” and two, ” He cheated his way to the top, I’m going to write about how he sucks at everything.” Two different mindsets, centering around the law of abundance. There is enough success for everyone, the only reason people don’t think so is because 90% of them don’t work.

    This is one of the major problems I have with ” religious ” people and much of their reasoning.
    It is a ( european-based ) myth that the descendents of Ham are African.
    Go back and READ Roosh’s excellent article, and pay closer attention to the 7 deadly sins part my friend. It’s moronic ( not you per se, but the idea..) to constantly harp that ” welfare ” and ” healthcare ” are going to be the ruin of mankind, especially if one considers himself ” Christian “.
    That is Of The World, small mindedness because it will be almost an EQUAL combination of sinful type behaviors, not just the few ( and I do mean few ) people getting assistance.
    Don’t be so quick to ignore the GREED, SLOTH, ENVY surrounding you every day. The suits in the mercedes with the high six figure salary and the 3,000 dollar suit is just as suspect in character as the lowly ” welfare ” recipient. You’ve been brainwashed to see one as better than the other.

    Christianity (and perhaps all religions) is outdated.

    While it may be the case that their moral guidelines make sense from a practical point of view, blind faith will simply not hold weight in the eyes of a thinking man.

    There will be reluctance and backlash.

    Going into the future we need a new form of religion. Something beautiful yet still grounded in reason. Otherwise it comes across as fluff that any user of wikipedia can refute with a few keyboard clicks.

    Right now there is no logical reason NOT to indulge in the 7 deadly sins from a metaphysical point of view.

    The only way to avoid this pitfall is to show that a more balanced community life is actually more appealing than excess frivolities.

  • ‘Reality’ Doug

    Show me, don’t tell me. You are asserting your interpretation as unfalsifiable facts, again. What scholarship and science flourished? The Christian sciences? Are they anything like the Koranic sciences? I guess Gallileo was an exception to your rule. You can’t show me or you would have by now.

    I largely agree with you, and I think I could live in peace with you. However, most people are made of different stuff. A philosopher’s frivolity is a woman’s/common man’s raison d’etra. Evolution requires culling. When include religion with reason, for the stupid to be happy? The stupid are happy only with more, more, more, and the ponzi scheme can’t go on forever. I am succeeding however I can, and hedonism is the way to go, as a tool not a raison d’etra for us. I think we can avoid the pitfall by avoiding brotherhood with men and women unfit for that sort of community respect. Religion is opiate the masses, but we progressed out of the Stone Age too. We should not be attached to inferior values or inferiors wholesale if we can be more. You clearly would be held back.

I could give a fuck who is dating who in Hollywood , who got a DUI, or some starlets baby bump. As far as greed goes I am absolutely trying to build generational wealth and have no regrets because being poor blows. Once you have had money and lost it the urge to require wealth and the freedom it brings Is overwhelming.
    I agree with you about the gluttony and the laziness but only because it makes no sense to work hard while ending up unhealthy, so I watch what I eat and workout. There is nothing wrong however with wanting to live and eat well in my humble opinion.

    “The only way to avoid this pitfall is to show that a more balanced community life is actually more appealing than excess frivolities.”

    This is the way to go but a religion grounded in reason is a fool’s errand. Religion has to be grounded in faith. Glubb addressed this in his “Fate of Empires.”

    “Perhaps the most dangerous by-product of the Age of Intellect is the unconscious growth of the idea that the human brain can solve the problems of the world. Even on the low level of practical affairs this is patently untrue. Any small human activity, the local bowls club or the ladies’ luncheon club, requires for its survival a measure of self sacrifice and service on the part of the members. In a wider national sphere, the survival of the nation depends basically on the loyalty and self-sacrifice of the citizens. The impression that the situation can be saved by mental cleverness, without unselfishness or human self-dedication, can only lead to collapse.

    Thus we see that the cultivation of the human intellect seems to be a magnificent ideal, but only on condition that it does not weaken unselfishness and human dedication to service. Yet this, judging by historical precedent, seems to be exactly what it does do. Perhaps it is not the intellectualism which destroys the spirit of self-sacrifice—the least we can say is that the two, intellectualism and the loss of a sense of duty, appear simultaneously in the life-story of the nation.”

    I disagree with all of this.

    Americans can be very productive people WHEN opportunity is available. Some of you here may be old enough to remember all of the social angst over the Gen X “slackers” of the early 90′s. When the economy picked up in the mid 90′s, many of those slackers turned into entrepreneurs of the dot-com era. We’re in an extended version repeat of the early 90′s when the kids have all become slackers again. Get some real economic growth and opportunity again and the slackers will become productive again.

    It is also worth considering that all of the recognized metrics of social decay – crime, drug abuse, teen pregnancy – have all significantly improved over the past 20 years.

    I challenge the notion that America is a decadent society.

    You wanted to know a culture more degenerate than USA? Easy – Australia. Granted its a pretty similar culture, and fortunately we have far less global impact over here, but nevertheless, we’re statistically the fattest nation on earth and we embody all the negative traits of America with almost none of its redeeming qualities such as charisma, we have far less freedom of speech, statistically far less generous than America, we have tall poppy syndrome (Google it) etc. Also, we had a feminist prime minister who considered personal emotional issues important enough to degrade parliament with rather than solving actual problems. http://m.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/transcript-of-julia-gillards-speech-20121010-27c36.html
    now that we have a conservative male prime minister people think it’s ok to make death threats about him because he has a functional happy family and thinks women should do ironing.
    Also our women leave even more to be desired than American ones – http://www.returnofkings.com/22732/9-reasons-why-sydney-sucks-for-men. I live in Melbourne which is even worse than the city cited in above link. Our men aren’t much better although in our defence I think there’s a lot of cultural pressure to act pretty alpha over here and a lot of guys appear quite alpha while displaying mostly beta values. That just highlights the feminist hypocrisy as they’re perfectly happy with alpha posers, as long as you’ll bend over for them once your guy friends aren’t around.

    Have you read the actual speech from which Tytler’s cycle originated? It’s an address from Prentis’ Cult of Competency. I would highly recommend it. Some passages:

    “If I were asked to pick out the one paramount blessing of a college education, I think I should place mental humility above all others. Hence it has always seemed to me that every student should pursue at least one subject far enough to realize how little he can ever hope to know about it when he compared his own proficiency with that of the real master minds in that particular field.”

    “Only morally competent men will support religion, assist the incompetent, succor the unfortunate, and exercise the self-restraint necessary to preserve our free institutions.”

    I don’t know what is bothering you about the above post, but I assume it is because apparently Ham sinned. I know that all religions had been subverted and that Ham may or certainly may not have sinned – he may well have been innocent. I certainly do not hold a view on this point. What matters is that the people orchestrating acts against mankind definately believe the above. I am a christian, but loosely so, as I know the bible contains half truths mixed in with lies and can be mis-interpreted. I think only a few were meant to understand even parts of the Bible. I think much of what had taken place is open for discussion, but certainly, I believe Christ existed (as his name is so often slandered in the west by the ‘elite’) and I believe in the golden rule and of what had taken place in Genesis. The book of Revelations was written by the satanist sect and contains truths and mis-directions. The rest is open to much speculation.

    I have been to numerous churches, denominations and “christian groups” to try and find people preaching the truth and there was only one old man with a tiny church that ever rang true with me. He spent most of his time calling out the lies that pretty much every “christian” minister preaches now a days.

    When people are doing wrong they need to be told in no uncertain terms just how wrong they are doing. Anything else is just lying to them for personal profit.

    I am laughing right now just at the pure irony in that all of today’s american “christians” and perhaps those in europe too would hear a more spiritual message that brings to them closer to God by listening to the atheist Roosh!

    run into the burning building, Roosh V.

    Yes, this culture is deeply infected. You, me, and whoever else is in this sliver has an antidote. How long has this been seeping into our culture? It may take that long to erase and eradicate it.

    The last thing a guy wants to hear from a writer who can move the pen w/ some power is that all they can do is shake their fist or leave.

    I’d love to see a return to some earlier writings w/ some hope. I have it. Other guys do. But it leaks – I’m sure you’ve seen that. A bit of fresh encouragement and a rallylng cry with one of these posts would be a lot more powerful.

    That mentality you’re talking about is already spreading like wildfire. Barring extreme religious opposition (e.g. muslim), it will overtake most places anyone cares about within the next couple decades at the latest. May as well start the next revolution so when you finally hit it in 10 yrs, they remember where you came from.

    every little action of our celebrities, no matter how minor, is placed under the microscope to be ridiculed and mocked.

    Bizarre and random. Since when does Roosh care about white-knighting people who are famous? Where the hell did that come from?

    1) Our media is actually more deferential to celebrities than many foreign tabloids – by and large they were too tame to mock Kim Kartrash for her flop song “Jam,” and accepted her hamstering that it was a “charity single,” while the foreign media had a field day laughing about it.

    2) A lot of celebrities who end up in the tabloids actually collude with them to get in there. The “confrontation” or “scoop” is completely stage-managed.

  • advancedatheist

    There are teenage girls uploading selfies to Facebook and Instagram in the hopes of gaining attention instead of seeking out a good man in her prime fertile years.

    Oh, I can think of something worse than that: Reasonably intelligent teen girls who have fallen for the indoctrination that they can major in STEM subjects and hold their own with men in those fields.

    No, in general they can’t. This has so many things wrong with it that I don’t know where to start.

    One, women don’t stick with these fields for the most part. They drop out when they get married, or else they change over to easier jobs out of boredom or the lack of ability to handle the heavy thinking STEM jobs require.

    Two, they generally fall short of what men have on the margin to excel in them, though of course you can always point to outliers like Marie Curie, Lise Meitner or Mary Sherman Morgan.

    Three, they compete with young men for scarce opening jobs in these fields and have affirmative action working in their favor, and guys can find this demoralizing. I resented seeing how female math majors received preferential treatment for jobs over me, so I know this goes on. If our society basically locked women out of college STEM majors, the men would have a much easier time of establishing good livelihoods in them so that they could contribute to society’s net wealth and support families.

    And four, when women start to colonize a field traditionally dominated by men, they cause that field to lose status. During my father’s career as a pharmacist, hardly any women went into pharmacy and pharmacists enjoyed respect as medical professionals. Now about women make up about half of all the pharmacists, and the career has a girly reputation that guys find repellent. I bet pharmacists have lost relative income as well because women will take the jobs for less money than men.

    Roosh said: You can easily view their anger every day on Youtube and Liveleak—videos of public meltdowns, fights, and violence in public places

    This is odd, because Roosh used to be impressed with Russians’ swiftness at escalating to violence (e.g. this tweet). Does he really think it’s safer to talk shit to a Russian or Colombian man than to an American man?

    This article reads as if Roosh has been watching too much Russia Today and believing everything he hears. Envy? Meh. Universal. Not particularly bad in America compared to elsewhere. Wrath? Nah, not with our collective testosterone levels on the way down.

    If you want to criticize America’s unique badness, it boils down to this – in no other country are men more deferential and passive around women.

    Men do more here per capita to cater to, pedestalize, spoil, defer to and placate women than in any other country. And that vacuum of male leadership and guidance has caused American women to run amok and go crazy.

    The reason for this is because no other country has both a large feminist AND an Evangelical “women civilize men” white-knight contingent.

    “It’s not Americans I find annoying; it’s Americanism:
    a social disease of the postindustrial world that must inevitably
    infect each of the mercantile nations in turn, and is called ‘American’
    only because your nation is the most advanced case of the malady, much
    as one speaks of Spanish flu, or Japanese Type-B encephalitis. Its
    symptoms are a loss of work ethic, a shrinking of inner resources, and a
    constant need for external stimulation, followed by spiritual decay and
    moral narcosis. You can recognize the victim by his constant efforts to
    get in touch with himself, to believe his spiritual feebleness is an
    interesting psychological warp, to construe his fleeing from
    responsibility as evidence that he and his life are uniquely open to new
    experience. In the latter stages, the sufferer is reduced to seeking
    that most trivial of human activities: fun. As for your food, no one
    denies that the Americans excel in one narrow rubric: the snack. And I
    suspect there’s something symbolic in that.”

    Roosh, that was a brilliant masterpiece of truth! All thee points are backed up by cultural researchers and social psychologists. Prominent social psychologist Jean Twenge and Keith Campbell has written many books about America’s narcissism epidemic.

    In her book she indicates that the research showed that American women are responsible for the majority of the narcissism epidemic in America. See http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1213212/The-ego-epidemic-more-inflated-sense-fabulousness.html

    “Narcissistic personality traits rose just as fast as obesity from the 1980’s to the present, with the shift especially pronounced for women.” (Dr Jean Twenge the narcissism epidemic pg 2)

    “The upswing in narcissism appears to be accelerating: the increase between 2000 and 2006 was especially steep. The changes were especially large for women” (Dr Jean Twenge the narcissism epidemic pg 31)

    “It ( America ) looks like an upside down bird’s nest: a hollow vessel with an empty interior and a rotting structure” (The Narcissism Epidemic, pg 277)

    “Young women in particular often feel that they have to “have it all” (Jean Twenge Generation me pg 130)

    “Narcissism is all about buying and using products that confer status and importance – expensive cars, jewelry, clothing, a nice house, or anything else that displays status, power, and sophistication” (Jean Twenge The Narcissism epidemic pg 160)

    “Materialism is one of the most obvious examples of America’s narcissism epidemic.” (The Narcissism Epidemic, pg 160)

    We didn’t have to look very hard to find it. It is everywhere. The United States is currently suffering from an epidemic of Narcissism. But most Americans don’t even realize it exists. (The Narcissism Epidemic pg 278)

    Verbal aggression-people being cruel to one another with words- also seems to be on the upswing. Incivility has become shamelessly common. vitriolic comments display an unmistakable narcissism. . (The Narcissism Epidemic, pg 201-203).

    Narcissism has corroded interpersonal relationships. There has been a switch from deep to shallow relationships, a destruction of social trust, and an increase in entitlement and selfishness. (The Narcissism Epidemic, pg 276)

    Another great rant Roosh. There may have been a culture which WAS as degenerate in many ways as contemporary America, and that was Ancient Greece. Surprised?

    A bit one sided and pessimistic no? What about the good things that America has to offer? For example, the ease of creating business. The amount of inventions created here in the last century. The entertainment industry, and just about any other industry for that matter. How about the freedom of expression and speech? The high quality of living compared to other countries? People have a choice to choose what type of lifestyle they want, and not everyone’s as corrupt as you’re making it out to be. Sorry but you’re blind. I’d bet you’d ask any eastern european around you, and they’d trade an arm and a leg to get to America.

    I think societies are more the same than different actually. It just takes different forms. America’s wealth allows it to manifest itself more obviously.

    If you might recall from the movie Enemy at the Gates one of the main characters says “We tried so hard to create a society that was equal, where there’d be nothing to envy your neighbour. But there’s always something to envy. A smile, a friendship, something you don’t have and want to appropriate. In this world, even a Soviet one, there will always be rich and poor. Rich in gifts, poor in gifts. Rich in love, poor in love.”

    There are cultural differences to be sure and I definitely think Americans act with a sense of entitlement worse then any other nation but in so many other fundamental ways (lust, greed, envy, pride, wrath) we are more the same then different.

    I have to admire Roosh for saying in public what we guys have traditionally said about women amongst ourselves in our own male social spaces: Taverns, barbershops, pool halls, private clubs, etc. Don’t take advice from women; experience damages women and enriches men; women can’t help from becoming more narcissistic and selfish if they can figure out ways to get men to notice them more; and so forth.

    A few generations back, people wouldn’t have found these observations controversial.

  • guest

    I spent nearly a decade overseas in various places first world, third world, tropical, frozen, white, black, brown, etc. Coming back to the US, it took a solid two years for me to organize everything I experienced, everything I learned, and apply it to my own culture and thoughts about the future. I’ve done that now, and have come to a conclusion that’s pretty close to Roosh’s findings.

    There’s no utopia. Human beings are human. You’ll find varying levels of “bad” everywhere you go in the world. What’s uniquely American is the overwhelming saturation of degeneracy in every nook and cranny of our society. Doing the wrong thing, for the wrong reasons, and loving every minute of it, has become the national religion. Rather than typing a few hundred words, I’ll simply say that I’ve come to the conclusion that this nation, and a majority of the people in it, have been seduced by evil.

    After being back here for 2.5 years, it’s safe to say that I’ve completely failed to reintegrate into the US. I simply cannot do it. I’m repulsed by what I see everytime I leave the house. The longer I stay here, the more I withdraw from it.

    I believe what we’re witnessing today, and what’s likely tomorrow, is nothing less than the suicide of a civilization. As such, I’m busting my ass to secure a graceful exit. I’m only 32, but I’ve seen how far we’ve fallen in a short few decades, and I don’t want to be here when we hit bottom.

    Your tribe was infiltrated by another tribe, who set about quietly destroying it through their power over media, academia, government, and law. This is a silent war, being waged by foreign invaders against the whites in the USA. None of this was accidental. It is all by design. It’s a war, but most of us are too stupid to see that’s what is happening.

    The only hope for America is that enough people wake up in time to see WHO is doing this to us, and WHY. At that point, there will be so many enraged people that the guilty parties will see their blood spilled all over the streets.

    I was so glad to see Oprah’s show finally leaving the air. Her show used to have worthwhile topics (way back when) that helped people or at least pointed people in the right direction. Real life topics that real people had to deal with every day.

    But, over the last decade (or so) it turned into a celebrity fest combined with The Price is Right. Materialism – everything that’s wrong with the U.S. today….just watch one of her shows from the last few years.

    People worship money in this country…everything else is second.

  • Driver

    I disagree….the time it’s a little different.

    I’ve been around for a couple of decades before the 90s plus until now and it’s not the same. We are in real trouble this time. Many things have changed, today, versus the 90s…and we can’t go back to ‘fix’ them.

    Much of what were losing related to production will not return, here, until we’ve hit rock bottom at this point. In the 90s, we didn’t have the internet (and it’s current form) until much later – it was new. Even by then, it was not nearly as socially destructive as it is by today’s standards.

    I think you can compare some of what was going on back when to today…but much of it will take the ‘train coming of the rail’ to fix.

    Many of the generation, today, can’t even deal with live human beings (without a phone to distract them). Soon, you’ll see an increase in ‘neck pain’ due to many walking around for years with their heads down (from looking at their phones).

    It’s funny, true..and sad….all at the same time.

    I think you’re still living in ‘yesterday’s America’.

    Many things have changed with the fall of the Soviet Union and the increased participation of China in the global market since 2000 (as well as other SE Asia countries). It’s one of the very reasons why the European Union was created. You’re seeing a global shift in power across the board.

    These are the hard truths and Americans need to be ready to face them.

    Many decades of production facilities leaving this country, alone, should be a rude wake up call for any American.

  • Driver

    A few generations back – anyone would have been called out for this kind of behavior: man or woman (by a man or woman).

    We’ve let many things get to a point where it’s considered ‘acceptable’ to behave in any way and it’s deemed ‘ok’.

    No it’s not. If you are rude, then you are rude – point blank (and someone should be called out for it by anyone). No one should get a free pass for being rude (or any other behavior…..that has nothing to do with ‘feminism’ and we should not let it be hijacked by them.

    ‘Wrath’ or ‘angry people’ is too generalized a concept. Anger is a contagious disease. There’s people who are bitches or dicks by nature, other people who were not angry, became angry because they were tired to take the shit from bitches or dicks. I see a difference there. Let’s make a more clear example: I wasn’t angry by nature. Then I found bitches and dicks who tried to mess with my mind or who acted as if they were superior beings. Unfortunately, I succumbed to anger. I tried to ‘forgive’, ‘forget’ but I fucking could not, so I started lashing out at whoever tried to mess with me. In the beginning, I was a nice guy, and yes, nice means nice, it means that I treated everybody nicely unless they gave me reasons to do otherwise. When I found bitches and dicks, I stopped being nice, and I became a dick to bitches and dicks, but strangely enough, I am NOT a dick to people who don’t deserve that treatment. It’s pretty simple: if someone treats me well, I’ll treat them well and even better, if not, I’ll be mean. Plus, anger is a lot more complicated than one might think. First off, EVERYBODY is angry, I don’t care if you are a millionaire and you have 10 bitches in bikini dancing around you at the playa. Anger is a result of summing up of all negative events in your life, and no matter what, life had a bite at your ass, and if it didn’t happen yet, chances are, it will. Your relative might have died 20 years ago, and subconsciously you are angry about it, even though you might not understand what the hell is going on. Anger is human, only a robot is not angry. The difference lies in whether you are able to direct your anger on certain people, the ones who deserve it, or you just lash out at everybody. In the latter case, it’s because you think everybody is bad, which is an insane concept. This is a very dangerous trap to fall into. To see EVERYBODY as an enemy. There’s lots of bitches and dicks, but some good people too. If anything, in America the degenerate thing they do is to be angry anyways and then to talk bullshit about it, hide it, put up a facade, and act like they are great, etc. Anger is there to stay, the only way to combat it is to start from yourself and not be a bitch or a dick. Don’t put people down unless they did that to you first, then maybe things will change. But America is full of this put down shit. If you are homeless, stupid people label you as a ‘loser’, but if you had sex with a drunk and wasted slut at a bar, they label you a ‘winner’. If you are an asshole like Steve McQueen or Shwarznegger or some other assholes who are hyped to the stars for , hey, nothing, they label you as ‘cool’. That’s America too. It’s all much more complex than it seems. I am angry, and I know I am a pretty decent person, I have facts to back up this with. Resentment starts when someone who doesn’t know me well, tries to put me down, labelling me as irrelevant or something. Then there will be problems.

  • manmade

  • casinobox

    What the hell do you mean by American culture being degenerate? American culture is nonexistent.

    For example, you’re talking about food. Are you seriously telling me that the shit you buy in America is even close to authentic Latin American or Asian (ex. Chinese/Japanese/Korean) or Indian or Middle Eastern cooking? Of course not. The only thing American food has going for it is that it’s loaded with sugar, which I actually hate. If you have a good Middle Eastern or Indian sweet, the sweet won’t even be very sugary, but it’s very flavorful and tasty. The problem in America is a lack of culture and tradition, which is why the food sucks IMO.

  • manmade

    casinobox, it’s obvious that you like to pull meaningless junk and nonsense out of your ass. Sugary and overspiced Middle eastern crap is just a little better than sugary and nutritionally null American crap. It’s still a plate full of crap, so what’s the point. You are gambling too much

  • manmade

    PS. ‘Culture’ and ‘tradition’ aren’t the same thing. Do you play dice with words too?

  • manmade

    having said that, I still think that Middle Eastern etc food is a million times better than American food. Duh. We all know that. The reason why American food is crap it’s not because it’s ‘loaded with sugar’, it’s because it has no nutritional value, you eat 5 goddamn cheesburgers and it’s like eating a tiny piece of bread, but you feel full like a happy pig

  • Jesus

    I’ve been to over 100 countries and this is generally spot on. America is what I call a failed society. It is deprived in almost every fundamental area yet because of arrogance thinks it is some supreme society. The funny thing is that 90% of Americans have absolutely no idea of the immense social problems in America because they never travel and are brainwashed from birth to believe America is exceptional. It is simply sad when I see an American abroad or have to go back to the US. People are literally commercialized robots that live for no purpose other than to serve their corporate overlords.

    On gluttony – even when people don’t overeat, still the obsession with food and fine dining, and making it one of the main interests and hobbies, as it is in our major cities, is also a sure sign of degradation. After all, food is a basic necessity. Living to eat rather than eating to live is not something to be proud of. When you live to eat, it’s equivalent to saying that you don’t have a life.

    China – all kinds of state repression and hypocrisy, official corruption including stealing peasants’ land, blind eye to the worst pollution in the world.

    Cuba – state repression for “socialism” protects a ruling class at the top while turning half the women in Havana into whores for hard currency.

    Sri Lanka – personal fiefdom of the president, massive corruption.

    Egypt – 80% of women have their clitorises cut off, massive corruption, oppression, and the usual homosexuality from repressed heterosexuality.

    India – caste system, massive corruption, rigged system, fucked up sexual mores.

    Thailand – elite impunity, corruption, extreme whoredom, greed, hypocrisy, etc.

    Not to mention North Korea, Equatorial Guinea and most of the countries in Africa.

    I’m gambling too much? I don’t gamble my friend.

    But seriously, go and eat some good Chinese almond ding cookies or a good Indian pistachio burfi and notice the difference in taste. They’re not ex

    I’m not talking about health, I’m talking about the taste and the flavor. You know what, first travel to a country and actually live there like a normal person for a few months. I’m not talking about some shitty Eastern European country (I think Eastern European food sucks btw).

    Why do you think foreign women are much more pleasant than some Americunt that walks around like a self-entitled bitch with her head stuck up her ass? It’s because when they’re raised, they’re taught to cook. The cooking is something that gets passed on from their mothers, aunts, and grandmothers. The cooking is just a representation of the culture, tradition, and lineage. In a way, the cooking represents every aspect of society I’m talking about–including the women.

    With regards to culture and tradition, stop using literal definitions and thinking in literal terms. In different cultures, all of that shit is intertwined.

  • casinobox

    A bunch of shit got cutoff. As I was saying, when you see a society without culture and there aren’t any traditions for people to emulate, you get shit like this. The women are just a part of that as is the food and the behavior along with the religion and all of the other stuff. It’s all intertwined. Are most American girls raised in a family environment where they spend the entire day in the kitchen with their mothers, aunts, and grandparents cooking for the family? Maybe that’s the underlying problem. They’re not raised in that environment. Instead, they get work all day to make a bunch of money, then go to the bars on the weekends to get plastered and blow all their money they earned on liquor and shitty food to end up going home with some random guy. Does that sound like women raised with any sense of cultural identity or tradition?

  • Model 800

    In a conventional war, sure. But go nuclear and all bets are off. Even the Ruskie generals knew better than to push that red button.

    Then again, they did develop the “Dead Hand” autonomous ICBM launch system:

    Hope your missile defense grid is up to speed. The Russians respect strength and firmness of will, while naturally cringing at displays of weakness and submission. Imagine what Putin must really think about Obama’s public acts of deference to Michelle. Yikes!

  • Model 800

    Agreed. Jante’s Law in today’s modern context comes across as a thinly veiled mediocratic control mechanism preferred by the less successful members of society in order to keep natural alphas down under the guise of privileging the communal as opposed to individual good (as if they were both totally exclusive). While it may have had some merit during past harsh times in helping Scandinavian communities to survive, nowadays it simply serves as another form of socialistic standardization along the lowest common denominator. Besides, it is hard not to recognize the barely hidden envy and jealousy on the part of its endorsers when faced with their more successful bretheren. It is the (ex) Viking’s answer to the Briton’s tall poppy syndrome:

    I think it worth noting with wrath, while one may not, in modern America/the West take revenge in the violent way a high-testosterone male or man of the past might, that it was defined as:

    “…inordinate and uncontrolled feelings of hatred or anger. Wrath, in its purest form, presents with self-destructiveness.”

    One may, in taking revenge, do so with deadly calm and precise though terrible violence, such as Odysseus slaying his wife’s suitors.

    But being wrathful doesn’t necessarily entail violence or bloodshed. It could all be wasted energy that is ultimately self-destructive. So, though the wrath of Odysseus was more destructive in its end, he wasn’t so ‘wrathful’ in its practice. A feminist or commie, frothing at the mouthing, kicking screaming and shouting and doing so while protected by the medium of the computer they use to vent their rage, allow their anger and hatred to damage them with no end. And for things a truly masculine man would brush off and ignore.

    Also, I agree that the 7 Deadly Sins are worldwide. Of course, they are human. But America, and the West in general if to a lesser extent, lead the way in not considering them sinful, but even righteous! That is why the West is the most degenerate culture. Not for necessarily being more sinful, but tolerating their sins, and celebrating such tolerance as “open-minded and virtuous”.

    I didn’t know about this system, very interesting, and terrifying to contemplate. Our missile defense systems have no chance against Russia (or vice versa), they’re meant for single missiles/warheads. Each modern missile can have 10-14 warheads, each 10-100 times more powerful than Hiroshima/Nagasaki. (up to 24 missiles on an Ohio-class submarine) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiple_reentry_vehicle

  • the latent sadist

    It is indeed, horrible. I personally think it’s social media first that accelerated the decline, and then the knockout punch of society being able to carry social media around in public. I feel such waves of disgust at every girl I see with a fucking smartphone in public, tuning out the world. There are a few girls I used to talk with in the days of MySpace, very pretty who I’ve watched transform into vain, narcissistic bitches who would never engage in flirty online banter like that ever again. I feel something close to hitleresque hatred for this culture of primaddonas, giggling and sneering at men in public. The manosphere has gained so much momentum, what we need is a summit. We need to get the fuck off the Internet and start gathering in person. I think that’s a logical step forward, and I’m surprised I don’t hear it more often.

  • the latent sadist

    Imagine the readership of all the major manosphere sites gathering at a conference, moderated by the notable public bloggers, roosh, krauser, rollo, id love to say CH but he’s obv shrouded in mystery and prefers that. But who knows. Fuck we could make our own work. Sustain ourselves. Imagine that, where we all have the common goal to fight back, to recruit and unplug new men. The reason fight club is so thrilling when you first watch it, is because that sort of rebellion is very possible, that sort of banding together and becoming a counter force. That is within reach, I think the manosphere hasn’t reached the tipping point where it seeks to change the system, rather than try and subvert the system for their own gain (game). We’re growing, and there’s A large mass of subconscious male angst out there waiting to be given a voice..it’s what led all of us here to begin with.

  • Model 800

    Reagan’s “Strategic Defense Initiative” was supposed to overcome that problem by effectively creating a one-way umbrella composed of orbital lasers, rail guns, and interceptor vehicles that would allow most of our (U.S.) warheads to reach Russia while simultaneously stopping (almost) all of theirs. Technical, financial, and political difficulties were too great, and the project was eventually curtailed – though it did leave a legacy of advanced technical knowledge for the U.S. as far as missile and warhead interception technology is concerned. It is also believed that Moscow’s attempts to keep up contributed in no small part to the eventual financial and political collapse of the Soviet Union:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strategic_Defense_Initiative

    Apparently the promise of generous stock options on Lockheed Martin (LMT) and Ratheon (RTN) tended to act as a more convincing incentive to double-down and really work hard than the promise of the Order of Lenin and a state-appointed apartment at the end of one’s career. Incentives, people. Incentives.

    I dont´t think so. Czechs don´t give a f**k about all that feminazi ,PC ,gender etc crap. They resent it totally in passive way, and mostly actively too. That is mostly because those politians and NGO activists who promote that kind of crap there are very obviously so proamerican (or more like pro Washinton gov) that they resemble some kind of puppets payed by US embassy. And the Czech people don´t trust them directly because of that (why to trust somebody who obviously serve foreign power instead of it´s own country?). So the Czech people are very critical about everything what that group promotes, and the result is that Czechs found out that ideas spread by these puppets are very similar to ideas spread by puppets of USSR earlier(which everybody there rejected and even privately laughted about ,then). Czechs had constitution and equal rights(women vote rights etc) in 1920´s so they are almost offended when somebody tries to take fake moral high ground over them because of these issues, and they know how to argument so they expose all those PC wannabe commisars into what they really are: society hating wannabe power tripping low life thugs and neo-marxist deprivants

    I almost believe the Elite and the real power brokers behind the scene set up morality that is framed for control and a cognitive dissonance that people fall victim to. I mean, they have the money and influence to gather the metrics and the research for complete technocratic control. Regardless of the actual maturity of technology they have been one step ahead, they crash, lose a little ground but a core survives and slowly plots and schemes over vast stretches of time.

    Their are too many anomalies in Megaliths and unexplained artifacts that point (Not to fucking aliens) but a former technologically advanced time in our past. Something wiped that shit out. Manufacturing and technologically took a heavy hit but remained “underground.” Same people?

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they practiced what normal people would perceive to completely evil and shockingly so by the standards we have (if any). I think we could not possibly conceive weird shit taking place and if confronted with it, it would simply be too insane to believe we’d effectively shut down.

    This system of control that seems powerful and all pervasive is exceptionally fragile, and they are essentially creating a system that will eventually be they’re undoing. Maybe they manage the collapses, maybe not.

    Hi Roosh,

    I just read a couple of your article. Would you be familiar with Thomas Sowell’s work? All the economics analysis (zero-sum, supply and demand of decent guys/pretty girls) seems to be there.

    Like your work, thank you for your thoughful production.

    No he isn’t concerned with rewriting history. I have read several of his books. His books document many historical facts which are verifiable. These said facts simply run counter to the politically correct mainstream media. they educate the reader of facts they did not know and cause one to question what one has learned in school and through watching the major news networks. My guess is you have never read a Sowell book and you are just going by what you have heard from someone who has also never read Sowell.

    Rooshs article is an oversimplification. There are at least two cultures in America if not more. Many americans are conservative decent church going folk raising families unfortunately. ..there is this narcissistic social media culture…which can also he evidenced by much of the filth on tv….rising and infiltrating all parts of America. in addition obama is fucking up the country. …perhaps irrevocably.

    You know, girls like sex in a way different from yours. Did you know we rarely reach orgasm when having sex for the first time with a new man? It requires a certain amount of trust. a girl should be very relaxed (but not drunk) to cum. What’s the point for us to have one night stands then? Girls who do that just try to prove something to themselves and often have low self esteem. We like sex, but we don’t typically get physical pleasure from the first sex. I’m talking about the majority here.

    You will benefit a great deal from revising your views on God. It is you who like the prodigal son moved away from the kingdom of God that is your birthright and then trying to find happiness where it is not to be found. The only way to find it is to go back.
