Commenter Bohemund noticed that sex realists, reactionary Christians, and proponents of Natural Law agree on many things, and suggests that in the Orthosphere their various perspectives naturally intersect. He asks, therefore, “What ought to be the correct, i.e., orthospheric, response to feminism and the various aspects of the sexual revolution?”
What’s the Orthospherean response to the degeneracy of the age? Knight errantry.
Things will fall back into place when men stop idolizing sex, stop worrying about their little selves, stop whining, and start focusing their attention on bigger, more difficult things. Like glory.
Patriarchy is an important part of cultural survival. But for that, we need a healthy supply of patriarchs. If you are going to be a patriarch, you need to be fit to rule as king. To be king, you must be first a good knight. Knighthood is not about women. It is about honor, duty, fealty, valor, virtue, intelligence, practical wisdom, and so forth. It is about combat; about adventure; about a Quest.
Get a Quest.
Real alphas are dangerous. Don’t fake being dangerous, like the Gamers. Be really dangerous.
Get fit, obviously, and learn how to fight. That alone will make you pretty intimidating, and change your whole attitude. But being fit and able to fight is just the infrastructure of lethality, and lethality is but the raw material of knighthood.
Best way to be really dangerous: be willing, glad even, to fight to the death. That will make you lethal, but it won’t make you good; so it doesn’t suffice for knighthood. To be a knight, you must be willing to fight to the death for the Good: for you, to be sure, but more for yours – for your Lord, and for your wards – and for your Quest.
Best way to be glad to fight to the death, as a True Knight: care more about your Quest than about your life.
How? Get religion, and use religion to sacrifice your life, right now. Among other things, religion is rehearsal for death; is death practiced with full, conscious attention. Visualize a beautiful, honorable death the way athletes visualize crossing the finish line. Get into the Zone. Practice dying. Inhabit it. Practice dying in pursuit of your Quest.
You are going to die anyway, right? Might as well make it noble.
Plus, it will make everything else seem easy by comparison.
As a Christian, take this natural manly way and sanctify it as a godly way, to plant the Kingdom of Heaven in the Earth that you patrol. Practice fighting charitably and dying a martyr; choose a beautiful, Holy Quest. The Grail will do. Or, if you would rather be a lay than a monastic knight, there are lots of dragons around that somebody is going to have to slay.
Forget the feminists, leftists, nihilists, perverts, and degenerates: the misologists, as Mark Anderson calls them, those who hate the Logos. Demographically, they are doomed, their generation already lost.
I’m getting really sick of thinking about the misologists and their depraved arguments and obsessions. The future belongs to those who love the Logos, and order their lives accordingly. It’s time to start living as if we already lived in the next age, in the age we want to live in: the Age of Orthology. It is time now to start enacting orthology.
Leave the dead to bury the dead. The most we can do for the misologists is to lead a virtuous, noble life, so that they see, some of them, how beautiful and good that can be, remember their ancestral home, and realize they are living in a sty, eating swill; so that they think of returning to the houses of their fathers.
It’s time to set forth on something hale, and clean, a new and glorious adventure. Set your sights then on long term victory, on the achievement of your Quest; and do the right thing to make that happen for yourself and for your children, whenever they happen to come along. Start living orthologically, in everything you do.
Nothing else is in your control. Everything else will take care of itself.
