Piggybacking on my prior post about the RV industry being an canary in the economic coalmine (The (Fifth Wheel) Canary In The Coal Mine). There is more news coming out about that and it sounds like the industry is in a general free fall: “All Of A Sudden, It Came To A Halt”: After Posting Fresh Records Just Months Earlier, RV Industry Grinds To A Halt
We generally think of “luxuries” as something you can purchase if you have a bunch of money and/or a credit card with a high limit: fancy cars, designer clothing, the newest tech gadgets, recreational vehicles.
But not all luxuries are tangible goods, in fact many luxuries are lifestyle or societal.
A personal example: this blog.
I don’t run ads or get any revenue from this blog so the time I spend writing can be considered somewhat frivolous. Because my businesses provide me with ample income, downtime and flexibility, I can take the time to scream into the aether via this outlet. It allows me to meet new people and interact online and more important it provides me with pleasure. I enjoy writing, and it sharpens my mind. Nothing makes you think through your positions like putting them out in public.
If I had to spend every waking hour making sure my wife and kids had enough to eat and were sheltered from the elements, I wouldn’t have time to blog for sure or do any of the other stuff I like to do like reading or playing the occasional video game. All of our hobbies are luxuries, from hunting or fishing for pleasure to watching the ballgame on TV. Because of centuries of struggle and progress by our ancestors we now enjoy almost unlimited leisure activities. Even something as simple as closing your eyes in the hammock for half an hour is a luxury.
Again, these luxuries can only exist in a society that is relatively prosperous, free and safe. Those three words described American society in general over the last century but while they are still applicable for many of us, those days are waning in a hurry.
Not all of these intangible luxuries are a positive of course.
There are all sorts of societal maladies that can only exist in a society that protects the weak and the weird. One of these is “feminism”, an ideology that claims that women can exist and thrive in a society without having men around in a traditional gender role arrangement (women caring for kids and keeping the home, men being the protector and provider).
What is endlessly amusing to me is that feminism itself is something that can only exist in a society where women are insulated from the consequences of their poor decisions by the very men they revile. Absent men who let women act against their self-interest and protect them from bad men, feminism doesn’t exist.
Without the societal protections provided by men, women are in a much worse position. You don’t hear a lot about feminism in the Congo or Afghanistan or Yemen because women there are just trying to survive and not get raped. Only in advanced nations with centuries of patriarchal protection built into the fabric of society can women venture out to screech about their “right” to murder their unborn child.
Tim Pool had an interesting conversation with his cast of misfits the other day addressing this issue……
One of his most salient points comes around at around the 13:30 mark where Tim says, paraphrasing, that without external threats, the weak survive and then drag down society.
This is on display in spades. Weirdos, freaks and degenerates run our society, everything is centered around trying to placate people who by all rights should be allowed to suffer the consequences of being the weakest link in society. A guy who puts on panties and prances around like that makes him a girl in any normal society in human history has a very short lifespan but in our society we supposed to lift him up and exalt his bravery.
The same is true for “feminism”. You can be a strong, powerful wahman who don’t need no man….provided that good men provide a security blanket of protection that keeps bad men away from you. Absent that? Good luck with your plan to be an independent woman toughing it out in a man’s world.
Without the rule of law that is enforced by men with guns, what would like be like for these single, “independent” feminist women?
They sure as hell wouldn’t be wandering around in cities, going to work or clubs or whatever, without a care in the world and wearing provocative outfits. Muggings and rapes would be commonplace. This was on display in Haiti after the earthquake. With no law enforcement mechanism in place, women and young (often very young) girls in refugee camps without a man to protect them were raped at will by gangs of Haitian men. It isn’t mentioned much because it runs counter to the narrative but indications are that unprotected women and young girls travelling to the U.S. border with Mexico are raped repeatedly along the way, a kind of cost of doing business with human smugglers.
Being a single woman living on her own, or a lesbian couple playing house or the single mom sort of works now but that is a luxury that isn’t going to last. It might take a little longer but soon feminism, transvestitism and other anti-social degeneracies are going to go the way of the RV. We are likely going to see a widespread culling of the weak and the weird on a scale that we haven’t seen for generations. Just one more unintended but healthy side-effect of the joint going tits up.
Time has come to throw a little chlorine into the gene pool.
the whole stronk independent woman is all BS. sure, theyare strong and independent. Alimony, child support, BS make work government job that accomplishes nothing, EBT, WIC, section 8, free healthcare, etc etc etc
government (at all levels) becomes the man of the house.
Great article, so true.
Very well put. Look around in a couple years, landscape will be quite different.
I think your timeline is off a little. We are likely to see a lot more freaks roaming around before the swingback occurs.
The NYT is running articles on decriminalizing cannibalism and pedophilia. I think we'll see those added to the lgbt freak circus soon but before the dangerous times hits.
I regard the acceptance of pedophilia as the true bellwether, the point at which civil society has well and truly collapsed, never to recover. If silly, delusional women want to go all fish-and-bicycle, that is on them, and I really don't have any sympathy when cold, harsh reality intrudes on their hen party. But a 'society' that encourages pedophilia, or even just turns a blind eye to it, is damaged beyond repair and only waiting on that Roman Empire-sized collapse. Before the inevitable rise of the Great White Strongman who will usher in societal reset, we are doomed to suffer numerous Caligulas and their sick, twisted agenda.
The DILs consider me misogynist, among many other traits which are anathema to their leftist leanings, but I remain unapologetic. As neither of them have children of their own (and I honestly don't see any possibility of that on the horizon) they are all-in on the Do As Thou Wilt message, marking them as either shockingly naive (one of them) or satanically evil (the other one).
The naive one mentioned recently that she is going to Disneyland with another couple and their toddler son in a month. When I mentioned that Disney is now known to be "The groomiest place on earth" she stopped talking to me and left in a huff. Egomaniacal, entitled losers, both women. Clueless to the stone cold fact that their wokeness has placed targets on their backs.
Remember the Julia cartoon under Hussein Hopenchange?
So strong and independent.
Everything will be a luxury in the North Venezuela Fundamental Transformation and RV's are a construct of the white male patriarchy. (sarc)
We took many family trips in Winnebago and camper shell pick ups or the van style with overhead sleeper and once rode all the way to Wisconsin in the back of a Ford Ranchero with no shell.
That America is long gone as part of the Long March.
That's a solid saying
Replacing one sugar daddy with another
Oh certainly, things are going to get a lot worse before a cleansing but that fire is coming
That is still a bridge they haven't crossed yet with a strong emphasis on yet. Watch for pedo acceptance to intensify in the "culture" with dramatic movies about old men grooming young boys that get lots of awards.
Those of us who remember those days will become scarce over the next 15-20 years
Bashing of various sorts; fag, tranny, sick weirdo, will become common as soon as those who have the will and capability to maintain a civilized society decide to exert influence. It has only been the forbearance of right minded people (which forbearance has been misguided) that has allowed those that nature would otherwise see as incompatible with survival to exist in our society. When they are in small numbers they can be tolerated and even found to be amusing; when they treated society, as now, they must be removed.
Threaten* society .
Good points – I like it: feminism is a luxury good.
US=Uncle Sam=Uncle Sugar
Years ago I read about John Calhoun's experiments with rats and closed societies. I believe we are in the behavioral sink. The internet shortened the spaces between people. We aren't really physically crowded.
also I think the only way out is through to the other side.
