Feminism is About the Lust for Power and the Desire to Crush

"It is the magician's bargain: give up our soul, get power in return. But once our souls, that is, ourselves, have been given up, the power thus conferred will not belong to us. We shall in fact be the slaves and puppets of that to which we have given our souls." - C.S. Lewis

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."

"What does it profit a man who gains the world but loses his True Self?" - Jesus

It's interesting how simple it all is, no? For society---specifically men---I think that a lot of us with ears to hear are having to relearn our own identity as men. I suppose I should say that's the case for me, since I can speak for no one else.

It's the same, circular pattern toward realization of the Truth that's always been around in terms of learning how to change all of this from a personal perspective. I spent a long time just plain fucking angry at what we've allowed to happen to society as I 'woke up' to reality.

There was a line from First Blood which was used in Rambo (2008):

"You're always going to be tearing away at yourself until you come to terms with what you are. Until you come full circle."

Men have to come full circle back toward realizing what we are. We're not PUAs and not meant to MGTOW. But I think a lot of men will continue to be stuck in the corner, tearing away at themselves, until they look reality dead in the face and come full circle back to what men are supposed to be---with or without the approval of women.

1) This is B.S. because a lot of men with power do have the most love, both receiving and giving. Power and passion from one area of life spills over to another, which is why women correctly go after starving artists and writers and musicians; they see the power they have for their work and know this is a powerful man who has a great potential for loving them. Likewise for other professions. Women dress up the word power in "passion" or "ambition" or "confidence" but the core is power.

2) Even if you choose to give up your power over others there is no guarantee you will get them to love you. So if we had the hypothetical case your quote is describing of a man with power over his woman but no love, and he gives up his power over the woman yet receives no love....Now he is not only missing love, but both love and power. A stupid man.

3) I believe the House of the Dead quote refers to corporeal punishment, not power over a woman in a relationship.

Repentance means turning away from sin and back towards God. Once again you misuse the House of the Dead quote to refer to all forms of power. Jesus had power over his disciples and told them what to do, and he constantly insulted them calling them slow to understand, dimwitted, etc. Yet he didn't use his power as the supposed son of God to punish them and kill them right there, and instead gave time for them to turn away from it. Likewise he didn't stone the adulterous woman.

Here is the unedited House of the Dead quote:

"Whoever has experienced the power and the unrestrained ability to humiliate another human being automatically loses his own sensations. Tyranny is a habit, it has its own organic life, it develops finally into a disease. The habit can kill and coarsen the very best man or woman to the level of a beast. Blood and power intoxicate ... the return of the human dignity, repentance and regeneration becomes almost impossible.” "

It talks about a very specific power, not all power. Otherwise Jesus would not claim to have allotted power to his 72 chosen, then his 12 disciples, then the rest of his church. House of the Dead is about tyrannical power, and if you are trying to equate PUA/manosphere/redpill with tyrannical power I just don't see it.

Genesis 3:16 To the woman he said,

“I will make your pains in childbearing very severe;
with painful labor you will give birth to children.
Your desire will be for your husband,
and he will rule over you."

1 Corinthians 4:20 "For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power."

Repentance comes from the Greek metanoia and means to change one's heart and mind. Sin comes from hamartia and means to miss the mark.
Altogether it means to change your heart and mind because you are missing the mark.

Dostoevsky was far too perceptive to write simply about physically abusing someone. There are many ways you can abuse someone, and physically is the least subtle.

For that matter, most people are corrupted by power. After all with great power comes great responsibility. That's true, even if it come from Spiderman.

I tell people about 80% of life is the Four Cardinal Virtues, the Seven Deadly Sins, and the Seven Heavenly Virtues.
