Your Mission Is To Live, Not Exist

If you ever want to get anywhere, you better do (or not do) this.

Did you ever hear that growing up? Did your parents ever say that? A teacher in high school? A college professor? A close friend?

I was thinking about this while reading a blog post by fellow MG cohost Rob about how the internet never forgets. One of the takeaways is watch what you say or do online, lest you lose your job or have trouble finding one in the future.

Your Band of Brothers Must Go Offline

One of the things you have probably noticed watching social media is how quickly movements or groups that publicize their existence there are altered, changed or destroyed. It’s why if you’re trying to gather a group of fellow adventurers and masculine geeks, you need to understand why this phenomenon occurs, and how to prevent it from happening to you.

Inclusivity is a modern secular god. It demands everyone and anyone must be included into any space. You see worship of this god everywhere. See every single corporate mission statement or an organization’s “about us” page. The god must be appeased.

Authenticity Is the Future Coin Of The Realm

Our good pal and occasional cohost of Masculine Geek Aaron Clarey wrote an essay titled “Sanity is the New Wealth” that is now behind a paywall.

His argument: being sane and acknowledging reality will give a person the same benefits as traditional wealth does.

Recently I’ve come to realize that a similar truth can be said about authenticity. Not too long ago I watched the 2018 film Ready Player One that takes place in 2045. The movie is an homage to the 1970s/80s, but it does briefly touch on an issue that modern people already grapple with. The protagonist is a young man who spends much of his time in an online world known as the Oasis and has fallen in love with a cute girl possessing that mixture of flirtation and spunk commonly lacking today.

Sincerity And The Masculine Geek

We live in a time when it is acceptable for a man to not really stand for anything. In fact, it is imperative that he remain in a precipitously fluid condition where he is sufficiently committed to the allowable opinions, but not so much that his views can’t quickly change as they do. The totality of Western institutions is undergoing a perpetual revolution in which what was the moral truth today was not the case yesterday and will not be tomorrow. Anything that retroactively violates that truth must be condemned and removed.

To cope with this continuous upheaval, men have by and large abandoned sincerity and authenticity, at the very least in their outward, public behavior.

The Star Wars fanboy

Recently Disney released a teaser trailer for the latest Star Wars film, presumed to be the last of the series (heh). On social media, I saw a few people take a swipe at it who had never seen the films, or had and hate them. Naturally, the Star Wars fanboys came out in droves to ironically prove their critics correct by attacking anyone who dare criticize their beloved franchise.

The Rise Of The Gamma In “Geek” Culture.

One of the reasons that Masculine Geek exists is because there is a perception that certain hobbies, interests or studies considered “geeky” are also regarded as unmasculine. However, when one examines history, we find that these were often the passions of famous, powerful and unquestionably manly men.

So when and how did the disconnect occur?

There are many possibilities. Having watched Vox Day’s Voxversity on the socio-sexual hierarchy, particularly regarding gammas, I have one potential theory.

Thoughts on “A More Complete Beast” by Jack Donovan

One of my favorite writers is Jack Donovan, author of “The Way of Men” and “Becoming a Barbarian.” His works have been an indispensable guide for men such as myself seeking to understand masculinity and build male friendships within the context of 21st Century, post-modern Western culture.

Recently I spent an afternoon reading his latest work, “A More Complete Beast.” Like his other books, it is a relatively short read, but each page seems to contain at least one if not two paragraphs of hard-hitting truths and observations.

In reflection, here are some key takeaways that are relevant for any man searching for meaning and purpose in the West.

Masculinity today is an option, and few want you to choose it
