The biggest problem in the world is the lust for power - that narcissistic Dark Triad power, domination and control. It's always been the biggest problem, for men and women.
I won't discuss how men can be corrupted by it, but only women.
Women lust for power, and these days it's over men. Leftism is feminist, and as such based on envy and hate and the desire to destroy - Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn referred to leftism as the attempt to "murder the Father," and all the characteristics of the father.
One of my anonymous posters wrote this, and I will reprint it in full.
"Women love power even more than they love the so-called alpha males.
"In fact, the only reason they really 'love' alpha males is because the association with that man gives the woman access to that power.
"It can be thug-power, money power, CEO power, rock star power, whatever kind of power that particular woman is desiring.
"This is why AFBB is often misunderstood - women like the association with jerky or thuggish men early on, when they are in competition with other women for good times and adolescent minded social status.
"Later, when it is time for houses, lawns, and nice furniture, they change their focus because now the field of competition moves to comparing domestic consumer milestones."
He is right about this.
There is a good power, and a corrupted power. When the masculine isn't corrupted, it becomes the protecting, the providing, the discovering, the inventing. When it is corrupted it goes PUA or MGTOW - fight or flight.
For that matter, being an "Alpha" (ridiculous adolescent word) is about having power over yourself, say confidence and being immune to what women do or say, and having power over women, to manipulate and dominate them and use them for sex (the latter is a corruption of being a man, for those who don't realize Roissy is a wimp and a liar). MGTOW is having power over yourself and life.
When the feminine isn't corrupted, it supports and nurtures. When it becomes corrupted...well, read about Lilith and Potiphar's wife and Jezebel - murdering babies, misusing sex, whoring after false gods, lying about everything. At their worst they appear to be more demons that anything else.
Sound familiar? Sure does, doesn't it?
And why shouldn't men go PUA or MGTOW when dealing with these things? Each sex influences the other, just like that Yin/Yang symbol. In fact, usually, women go first and men follow them. Even Mae West noticed that.
For bad and for bad. And has been noticed many times, you can have love or you can have power over others - but you can't have both.
Dostoevsky, in his House of the Dead, understood what power can do to many people, most especially the weak: "Tyranny...finally develops into a disease. The habit can...coarsen the very best man to the level of a beast. Blood and power intoxicate...the return to human dignity, to repentance, to regeneration, becomes almost impossible."
