    The Yin and the Yang of It By James Howard Kunstler

    " . . . A few weeks ago, podcaster Dave Rubin had “spiritual teacher” Eckhart Tolle on for a chat, and Mr. Tolle made the surprising remark that the current sorrows of the world were due to an excess of yinand not enough yang, meaning, he went on to explain, too much of the female principle in operation and not enough of the male principle. This crack made Dave Rubin blink a few times, especially coming from the most serene celebrity on the planet, a fellow far less excitable than the Dalai Lama, and a demigod to the yoga pants and Chai tea crowd. Too much yin! He said that? Really?

    Mr. Tolle is onto something. Just take, for instance, a recent column by The New York Times’s op-ed writer Gail Collins: How to Torture Trump. Could she have put it more plainly? Does she not sound like a woman who has gotten advice from an unscrupulous divorce lawyer (excuse the redundancy)? In fact, the USA is looking like a really bad marriage. The yin of America is stuck in an hysterical rage at the yang. Cis-men whose lived experience includes marriage may be familiar with this stratagem. The prudent men often opt to not engage with the (female) hysteria, which almost invariably amps up the hysteria.
    The aim of the national matrimonial hysteria is to make sure that whatever conflict is at issue remains unresolved. The melodrama goes on for its own sake. It’s fun living on the verge of a nervous breakdown. That is exactly why the US political scene is so disordered and distressed. (Women voters) That is why the Democratic Party can’t find any credible male candidates. (It is run by crazy women aka Hillary types aka raging Feminazis) And that is how come the country happened to elect an imperturbable Golden Golem of Greatness."

    Men are enslaved to their sex drive. Ironically, females are merely a distraction or objects of transient meaning stemming from an inner frustration boys feel and firmly establish as cornerstone of their young adult lives. To escape the matrix a man has to practice celibacy or monk mode long enough to see the illusion presented before him.
    A truly red pilled man is awoken to his inner voice. With spiritual growth comes more peace and more meaning in small mundane things.
    The hypersexuality through porn is a hook, and men are pacified in the online happenings due mainly to the astroturfing that'd have men believe MGTOW/red pill like philosophy is a minority when in reality more and more men around me are able to see the shenanigans. I do not hold back spitting red pills when I am in a group of grown men with no females around to subterfuge my meaning.
    Sadly though, most still are not red pill enough to believe in an AWALT principle.
    when it gets too cheap and feels cheap, wealth is about not owning it or desiring it, but discarding it if one finds himself in possession of it...

    I've been of the opinion that Seattle, the city in which I live, very liberal, left-wing, homelessness, open drug use and peddling, defecation on sidewalks, where the women (mayor, chief of police) who run things cannot fix things, that it's because we have Break It Feminism and not any Fix It Masculinity.

    In fact, as I tune my thinking to this, I see the TV news features much more emotional content than when I was younger.

    I contemplate telling others around me of my thoughts but I know the instant feedback is that I am sexist.

    I read this thing on Game of Thrones that suggested that the reason the final series was disappointing is that Hollywood only knows how to tell stories about people and emotions; wheras Martin's series is mostly about broader things - social systems. This is why GoT (the books) can kill off major characters: they aren't really about the major characters, they are about the situation those characters are in.

    The fundamental sickness in Westeros is the notion that a man can place his honour in the hands of another man by taking an oath. The soldier who razes a villiage says "I am fulfilling my oath to my lord", and the lord says "well, I never specifically told them to raze the village". No-one takes responsibility.

    My point being that this is a story that Hollywood is not able to tell.

    The other reason that hollywood can't grapple with GoT is that in Clown World, you are not allowed to say anything bad about women in general. But so many of the problems in GoT happen because women just insist on fucking men who aren't their husbands.

    Lady Diana Spencer had one job. One job. That that was: give the House of Windsor an heir and a spare. Having done that, that woman could have spent her life doing absolutely whatever the hell she wanted. Support charities? Done. Further study? Done. Pull a Princess Margaret and do nothing put play polo and hob-nob with her peers? No problem. But oh no: she just couldn't keep her goddamn knees together. Harry appears to be a nice bloke, but everybody knows. What the royal family needs is a few more executions for treason.

    And that's a story that hollywood cant tell without spinning it. Poor Cersei, loves her brother, and her husband is a pig. Poor whatshername Tywin's wife who fucked the King at the time. And Jon Snow's mother, who also fucked the king. No-one wants to say that a wife can and should manage her NCU (New Cock Urge) and hypergamy.

    Where were we? Oh - TV news. Yeah, coming up to a sportsman who has just won the cup and asking: "how do you feel right now". Reporting used to be who, when, why. Now the only question is "how do you feel about X".

    The rage is going to run out of energy because it is built upon the principle that life is better. But once the new generation comes into the fold a lot of this "progress" will be undone. History is repeating itself and the future belongs to the victor that has the children to pass the torch.

    For example, the plague wiped out a good chunk of Europe's elite. But a new class of elite were born and they by default took over because they existed and the previous generation could not pass on their wealth.

    That is why the current malaise that infects society is a symptom of decadence and high consumer spending with unsustainable growth that will be coming to an end. For example, there is no way the governments of the world can keep lowering interest rates. Negative interest rates?

    The balance of yin and yang will be restored when senseless consumerism decreases and re-investment for people and government roads and bridges comes back again. Whether the social contract between man and government can be restored is another discussion entirely though.

    For most people struggling with moderate to severe addiction, abstinence is usually the only way. A man need not swear off pussy forever, but to be truly and fully woke - to fully comprehend female nature, he has to spend a sufficient amount of time in a woke state. This is why I'll always think of PUAs as purple pillers at best. They're still squandering resources for women, giving them time and attention, and giving them the validation that women seek so desperately.

    Yes. Yes. That's some of what I see. There is more that almost slips by me, such has been the slow brainwashing of me, and I'm training myself to see it when I used to glaze over it. There's a lot of it around us.

    There is a radio station that plays music I like and for a few hours daily it's hosted by John Tesh with his theme of "Intelligence for Your Life" where he intersperses between songs any number of health tips, popular nutrition beliefs, and coping skills stuff, etc.

    I've really grown to be annoyed with some of the shit they say. For instance, he or his wife Connie Selleca will be talking about how holding things in leads to stress but "it helps people to regularly have a good cry" to get all that stress out.

    That may not be my best example but they are taking about women, not men. They substitute the word "people" in place of "women" perhaps to avoid being obvious. I remember having a visceral reaction: "Bullshit! Men don't fucking go have a regular cry to release tension!" That's when I began seeing how frequently they advise women but disguise it as "people". In other words, the woman's ways are portrayed as everybody's ways.

    That is why I call it insidious. Perhaps it helps women erroneously believe that female thoughts are universal thoughts, when they think men's thoughts are aberrations from a norm. That's another big complaint I have.

    Female inundation and bias has infiltrated every bastion of society, at the same time we're seen as "TOXIC" and "HARMFUL" to this altered state of mind (gynocentrism).

    In the same way they edit and censor our core makeup they push themselves and their core makeup over us, nullifying our natural being and labeling our "nature" as "corossive and toxic" seeking to blot us out of everything, and I mean EVERYTHING!

    Where gynocentrism grows, festers, and inundates, I find myself naturally repulsed and abandoning any particular bastion of feminism including and especially mass media.

    I find it truly sickening when men I know are brainwashed by this and act accordingly. These are the same personalities that gave women the same rights as men only to be abused and rewritten to exclude us from participation, in both the written decree and the new repugnant social paradigm that places us as hateful dangerous radicals, meanwhile they don't see nor recognize the damage they do or the peril they set course to fruition.

    I have ZERO TOLERANCE to female think and those that demand I be female in nature, acts, and SUBMISSION!

    The tables have turned and it's past time to flip them over, break them up, and use them as firewood!

    They labeled our reaction to this subtle but hostile takeover by feminism as some sort of hate crime, they believe we're wrong for refusing to tow the line for this deadly and destructive order that has placed us in peril, next stop, the ovens and gas chambers if we let them! Don't believe it? Look what they do to their own unborn and not think twice about right and wrong, they just press ahead with the extermination, if it were that easy to eradicate us I'm sure it would become standard practice and justified in law, gynocentric law.

    This society is past redemption as the fulcrum is pushed further from center each and every day. Things like the SLPC and Duluth Model are the grease they use to slide the fulcrum further and further in their favor.

    MGTOW is for the men that abandon this seesaw of law and injustice without regard or concern for the opposition, we just leave them there without any counterbalance to move their rendition of society forward, without us they whither and die on their own vines of injustice and the master plan ruined.
