"The orchestration of press, radio and television to create a continuous, lasting and total environment renders the influence of propaganda virtually unnoticed precisely because it creates a constant environment." -Jacques Ellul
The concepts of the Manosphere, many of which are delusions, are propaganda.
Propaganda, as I've pointed out more than once, is based on the belief that the Good is under attack by the Bad, which has to be destroyed in order to save the Good. It's based on our inborn narcissism - everything is either "all-good" or "all-bad."
Many of the concepts in the Manosphere are based on the concept that women are bad, that they are the enemy - monsters, really. And being under attack by monsters who want to destroy you is the archetype of the horror story (all propaganda, then, is based on the archetype of the horror story).
The Manosphere's concept of the "Alpha" is the grandiose "all-good" self (the "Beta" and all the rest is the "all-bad" self). Women are the "all-bad" self, too, who want to destroy men.
Feminism is based on (leftist) propaganda. In its case, women (even if fat, ugly, stupid and deluded)) are the "all-good" and men are the "all-bad."
What we have, then, is a propaganda war.
Understanding the nature of people does not mean as seeing them as "all-bad." I keep coming back to the story of the Garden of Eden, when "evil" comes into the world by Eve being deceived by the "serpent" and Adam wimping out and listening to Eve.
Who's the good one here, and who is the bad one? Both are imperfect and both are equally responsible.
Then there is the observation at the end of the story about how women want to rule men but men must instead rule women (this reminds me of what Samuel Johnson wrote: "Nature hath given women so much power the law wisely gives them little").
Again, who's good and who's bad? Neither. People are just imperfect. In Christianity it's Original Sin.
In other religions and philosophies people are considered to be asleep (the Manosphere's Red Pill in not "waking up," just exchanging one Matrix for another).
Henry Rollins once said, "Knowledge without mileage is bullshit." It's even worse bullshit when your "knowledge" isn't even knowledge but nonsense.
"Alphas," the "Dark Triad," "Alpha Fux and Beta Bux"....all bullshit, all propaganda.
Unfortunately many of the concepts in the Manosphere are the mirror image of feminism. God knows where this will lead. Nothing good, I'd say.
