Thanks to Captain Capitalism for the plug: http://captaincapitalism.blogspot.ie/2015/06/saturday-afternoon-podcasts.html
Went trail running this morning and had I been a child who is obedient to the State I would have had opportunity to talk to a cute girl. Since I’m an adult who can make my own decisions I missed out.
Almost makes we want to be a statist. But not.
If Apple users are so smart why do they need a 700 page book to move from using Windows to using MacOS?
Discussion of Why “Men Going Their Own Way” Is No Way For Men To Go by Mat Forney (http://mattforney.com/)
Forney, like Roosh in his post about limiting personal freedom (https://www.cynlibsoc.com/2015/06/stating-the-obvious-0232-a-discussion-about-people-should-not-be-allowed-unlimited-freedom-by-rooshv-part-1/), identifies real problems and almost reaches the correct conclusion. However his statism prevents him from getting there. Forney falls back on the typical statist hatred of the individual and love for “society” which in Forney’s estimation is not made up of individuals.
Rather like saying a forest isn’t made up of trees.
Important lesson from this podcast: When evaluating an ideology, system, religion, world view, so forth you must ask yourself is is grounded in first principles or is it a result of an emotional reaction.
Examples of first principle world views:
Anarcho-capitalism: Don’t initiate violence, don’t accept violence, don’t take other people’s stuff.
Capitalism: I have stuff. You have stuff. We can trade or combine our stuff with other people to create greater value and more useful stuff.
Examples of emotional reaction world views:
Feminism: I’m fat and have facial hair. The patriarchy must be oppressing me. I hate men.
Virgins Going Their Own Way: I can’t talk to girls and have never been on a date. All girls are yucky. I hate girls.
Statism: I’m too stupid to keep myself alive therefore I’ll rely on powerful rich people to provide everything I need to stay alive by stealing from others. I hate everyone.

3. Limited government
In order to be independent of society, and live within it, while at the same time work for limiting governmental influence upon our daily lives, men will:
– Go Their Own Way
– Support other men
– Legally reduce any taxpaying
– Truthfully act out any duties in accordance with their conscience
– Use any rights to the benefit of other men as well as themselves
From The Masculine Principle – http://masculineprinciple.blogspot.ca/2015/03/the-masculine-principle-table-of.html
”The problem here is women are totally lying about wanting to be empowered. To have power, one must have independence and be self-reliant. This is the exact opposite of what women and children have been for most of human history. Instead of being independent and self-reliant (ie having power) they have been dependent and relied on men for everything. In return, there is a bunch of stuff they are expected to give men…..certain roles they must perform for the system to work.
Now, a handful of women have always been an exception. I can totally see how more women would want to have power by becoming self-reliant and independent. BUT THAT’S NOT WHAT THEY ARE DOING! Instead, they want to be empowered but still rely and depend on men for everything. They think they can do this by creating various ways and means to force us to take care of them, both as individuals and a society, without giving anything in return. They don’t want marriage but they still want money from men via alimony and child support. They want to vote but don’t exercise wisdom in what they vote for. They want jobs but are pathetic as employees, but God forbid you fire them, you’ll get sued (plus they will trade sex for promotions).”
