Know Yourself, Know Your Enemy

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

I don’t want to belabor this point, because most of us already quite know our enemy. Indeed, much of what has been written on men’s sites, whether done crudely or with a certain nuance, is a deconstructive critique of feminism. We have become very well versed in feminist dogma, its new-speak language, and its tactics. We have devoted much study to its foundations, its history, the words of its leaders, and the subsequent legal consequences for us.

For me, feminism’s concern with men is best characterized by the following quote:

"A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle. " - Gloria Steinem

In other words, we men are simply irrelevant. Concurrently, our values are irrelevant. Honor, integrity, trustworthiness, and self-discipline hold no sway with feminists. The very ideas of logic and reason are little more than patriarchal constructs designed to undeniably burden women. Responsibilities and consequences serve no other purpose than to deny women the freedom to which they are entitled. Mathematics, science, history, economics, philosophy and religion were all created by men to shackle women so that they might not achieve their fullest female utopian potential.

It is the big lie designed to blind us to the truth - Men are the relevant ones.

You can see the truth in the very room in which you read this post. Look out your window. Practically everything you see was invented by a man, built by men, maintained by men, and ultimately exists because of the inclination of men.

Why? Why do men conquer new lands, build and maintain new civilizations? Why does a man labor for years, twelve or more hours a day, six days a week in a coalmine, or on an oil rig, or in the fields? Who does a man provide for, protect, and serve?

A woman’s answer is, of course, women. They suffer under the delusion that we do what we do for them. They are, however, correct when they say that a man only has one thing on his mind. But sex is only a means to an end.

Mankind’s motivation has always been the children. Feminism has robbed us of that motivation. I no longer have the promise of progeny. There is no guarantee that the baby in the womb carries my genetic code, that his mother will allow him to be born, or that I will be given permission to be a father. If I am lucky, I may become a visitor in my child’s life. But guarantees? Only one – the privilege of writing a check each month, the failure to comply punished by our government with prison.

Such silly, shortsighted women! In marriage they not only had the competitive advantage over other women, they held the only motivation to which men truly respond. Now, they don’t.

Now, I no longer care.

Apathy has set me free.

In that truth lies our greatest power.

Men, know yourselves. You already understand feminism. Now, understand women’s only real advantage over us. Know your motivation. And use it to your advantage.

Understand that we are in the midst of a gender war, and recognize that we are beginning to win. Declining marriage and birth rates. The importation of immigrants to do those dangerous, dirty, infrastructure jobs we no longer do, and that women never chose to do.

Men refusing to protect, provide, and serve.

Read with open eyes the articles authored by women bemoaning the lack of good, real men. Hear clearly women’s complaints. See their shoulders slumped in resignation, their faces contorted in despair. Embrace their depression. Cherish their hopelessness.

And do not care.

Our apathy is why women grieve.
