Women Can Age Beautifully (Solomon II’s Lost Blog)

Lovingly archived by the men at Return of Kings: Women can age beautifully, you know. Uh oh. That sermon we expected earlier was about to be delivered. Let me tell you boys something. I don’t take back anything I said about you guys running around with these little girls, since that’s evidently all that’s available these days. But there’s no reason for you to disrespect my wife. Sorry, we didn’t mean to be disrespectful to… Shut up. Both of you. Yes sir. Listen to me. A good woman ages beautifully. When I look at my wife, I see the most...

Leadership, Submission, and the Neoreactionary Social Order

The two terms which best describe our Modernist-Liberal age are ‘rebellion’ and ‘inversion’; the most obvious example of this is the breakdown of healthy sexual relationships, thanks to the rejection of traditional values, not just by society, but also by many of the churches; Dalrock and Sunshine Mary explore this thoroughly.  But as important as sex is (not only does it perpetuate the species, it’s also our number one raison d’être, after all) our inversions and rebellions go far deeper than just the advocacy of feminism and promiscuity.  In fact, the foundational mythos of our civilization has become an over-turning...

Why You Should Never Date a Girl With an Eating Disorder

By now I’m sure that you’ve all heard about the drama surrounding Tuthmosis’ post 5 Reasons to Date a Girl With an Eating Disorder on Return of Kings – if you haven’t, just scroll down to the comments.  HuffPo stumbled upon it, completely missed the satire, and thousands of self-entitled College girls decided that the appropriate response would be to start making death threats. The opposite of Love isn’t Indifference, I guess, it’s Hate. But the comments got me thinking: “Eating Disorders” – are they actually a thing?  Because I’m confident that they are not – at least, not in...

Is Feminism on the Decline?

W.F. Price and Audacious Epigone recently posted a graph from Google Engrams which seems to suggest a that the prevalence of Feminism in newly printed material has been declining since the nineties.  Many of the commenters noted that while the word Feminism might be declining, that might be due to the fact that so many Feminist tropes have become accepted as part of the mainstream; for instance, let’s consider the words “feminist” and “Women’s Suffrage”: Although Women’s Suffrage and Feminism are connected at the hip ideologically, we see an initial divergence – Women’s Suffrage was almost four times more popular...

The Strategy Guide to Life

Bold and Determined recently celebrated its 3 year anniversary; I decided to send Victor my well-wishes by channelling some of his “No apologetics, no excuses” brand of possitivity in the following article. Forget for the moment about the economy; forget for the moment about the historical cycles.  Remember, instead, that every generation of Men has had its own set of challenges to confront, and its own obstacles to overcome.  This is precisely what Dickens meant in the opening chapter of his novel A Tale of Two Cities: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it...

Reactionary Alignment Chart

  As you probably noticed, I decided to update the style on my site; hopefully this looks a lot cleaner and less cramped, the old one looked good back in 2008, but time and technology holds still for no man. I’m still ironing out the bugs, so this is partially a test post; it’s also an image I put together for a bit of fun.  You need to know both reactionary political theory and the Dungeons and Dragons allignment system to get it, which I figure is about 15% of my audience.  Tell me what you think:

LTR Game: Have a Fake Argument

Recently I was acting in a 3-person “art house” project; I won’t bore you with the overall plot, because what I want to bring up is the ad-libbed argument the actress and I were having.  It was a typical domestic argument about everything and nothing, and I was worried going into it that it might engender bad blood between myself and the actress.  Nothing could have been further from the truth. It started off with her bitching at me about taking the garbage out.  Then I yelled at her for being OCD about cleaning.  Then she called me a lazy...

Correlation, Causation, and Racism in “Science”

Correlation, Causation, and Racism in “Science”

You’ve got to love the modern pseudo-science of polling.  I remember during the last municipal election cycle, getting a call from a polling agency asking me how important Police Services were to me. “In what context?” I asked. “How much will the importance of Police Services be influencing your vote in the upcoming election.” A meaningless question without context. I hold a dim view of the Calgary Police Service; my anecdotal experiences with them have shown a deficit of actual policing skill.  They can’t differentiate between “Alpha citizen” and “Alpha criminal,” often stiffening in fear whenever they witness testosteronic power...

The White Poppy Quislings

As my American readers may be aware, in Canada we wear a red poppy on our lapel during the week leading up to Remembrance Day (you guys call it Veteran’s Day).  The tradition traces back to Maj John McRae, who penned the following poem in 1915, shortly before losing his life in the First World War. Remembrance Day isn’t a topic I’ve addressed before because, quite frankly, there’s nothing for me to say; the words have been written, the speeches recorded, and it is our duty as patriots to intone them about the cenotaph on the 11th of November –...

Game is a K-Type Mating Strategy

Game is a K-Type Mating Strategy

This post assumes basic familiarity with r/K selection theory, as well as Anonymous Conservative‘s work exploring how this relates to the two fundamental political stances of our species.  I highly recommend that you buy his book The Evolutionary Psychology Behind Politics for an in depth analysis, but for the sake of this article a simple explanation will suffice (if you’re already familiar with his theory you can skip to the break). An r-selected species is a reproduction focused species; this occurs in niches of abundance, where food is readily available.  Under such conditions, it is the fastest reproducers who take...
