"To a gas chamber, go!" - Whittaker Chambers on the attitude of nearly every page in Atlas Shrugged.
In my last blog post I made a brief comment about the nutcase "Ayn Rand" (whose real name was Alice Rosenbaum). I'll expand on it.
"Rand" was mentally ill. Specifically she suffered from Borderline Personality Disorder (which is a particularly virulent form of narcissism) and paranoia (which might have been caused by her drug addiction). This is not my opinion; she was diagnosed with these disorders by psychiatrists.
Since she was a narcissist, she had a "grandiose" self and a "devalued" self. Her philosophy was based on projecting her grandiose self onto her "producers" and her devalued self was projected onto her "parasites" (whom she wished to utterly destroy). She even referred to them as "subhumans."
Everything she wrote is worthless. What is good is not original and what is original is horrible.
Narcissists always split everything into all-good and all bad. Then they scapegoat the "all-bad," hoping to annihilate it. Then they believe all the problems in the world will cease to exist - and finally, they will be happy.
This is why her philosophy, Objectivism, appeals to adolescents. I have met more than one teenager who thought she was the greatest thing since bottled beer - until they got older and were horrified they ever took her seriously.
I mentioned Rand was a a leftist. Like all leftists she considered herself intellectually and morally superior to everyone else (she called herself "the perfect woman" and the second-greatest philosopher ever, after Aristotle). She was also eaten up with envy, which is main characteristics of leftists.
No society based on her beliefs could ever exist, the way any house built on sand could ever exist.
Narcissists and leftists always believe in human sacrifice. Leftism may have killed up in 200 million people in the 20th Century.
The same problems apply to the Manosphere. "Alphas" are the grandiose self and Betas/Gammas/Omegas are the devalued self. All problems are projected onto the Betas/Gammas/Omegas. So get rid of them.
Because of these things, the Manosphere is going nowhere until it gives up its adolescent beliefs that Alphas/Betas/Gammas/ Omegas really exist. Or that a "Dark Triad alpha" (a narcissist/psychopath) is "the perfect man."
The late M. Scott Peck referred to scapegoating as "the genesis of human evil." He was absolutely right.
Any philosophy that splits people into "all-good" and "all-bad" will never last. And that is why the Manosphere, for all the good it's done, will never last and ultimately will be absorbed into something else and changed into something more realistic.
As it stands now no society based on the concepts of the Manosphere could ever exist. House built on sand, you know.
