@ships The conundrum TRP faces as it tries to pass knowledge unto other men while lots of our EC's seem to slip in quality and even into blue-pill states over time.
"Yet we all know something is there (or not there)."
And that part made me check my crotch. Yep, everything still there. Get out of my head.
@tchower Why do you fear defending yourself so much? I know with the St. Louis couple getting charges (luckily MO AG will drop them) for defending themselves is scary but that's a particular thing with the BLM/Antifa hellholes in America at this very moment. That is the atmosphere of fear being created in this current crazy environment we are in and seems to be by design.
Everyone shouldn't have a gun though, there are lots of people who equate a gun to instantly having be a tough guy or shoot down anyone who miffs them a little. Some people are truly so scared they will get jumpy with the trigger. Since you say it's easy to act with "overwhelming unreasonableness" I take that as a projection of how you think you would act. And that's ok, that's not how everyone acts with a gun though. I don't keep a torx screwdriver in my tool-box because I want to use it on everything, I only keep it in case I need it. I don't go around flashing it to everyone, bragging about it, or try to use it improperly. I only get it out when it's necessary. Some people can't handle that modest restraint. If it's not a choice for you then so be it.Read More
When everything is all boiled down, the entire world is a clash between Catholicism and atheism, nothing else — Heaven and Hell. All other religions are false because they are man-made and eventually splinter and disintegrate. Atheism is, of course, the diabolical deception that there is no God.
All other religions eventually lead to atheism. They take some circuitous routes to get there perhaps, and some arrive sooner than later; but one way or another, they evolve, splinter and disintegrate. All that remains is Catholicism because only Catholicism has the necessary staying power because of who its founder is, the Eternal Logos.
The Catholic faith exudes power, strength, glory, beauty and majesty. As such, it reflects its Savior. Those spiritual qualities spill over into the material world. They imbue the material order. They depart the realm of the eternal and find a voice in the temporal.Read More
@Elvis It seems like the instant one tries to define masculinity it slips away and is no longer masculine. It seems like if one tries to actively seek it, one becomes unmasculine. It seems like if one never tries, he never becomes masculine. It seems like if one places a feeling on it, it becomes unmasculine. Yet we all know something is there (or not there).
@tchower The time I felt my masculinity, where I felt like a MAN was in highschool. It was this moment where all my classmates were heading towards the auditorium. Like a pack of she being herded. I paused and saw them enter in mass. Into this black door, and they disappear.
I looked to my right, through a glass door, to the sun shining in the sky.
I saw two paths: one of conformity and the other individuality
I decided to quickly skid across to the glass door and open it.
I skipped school that day. And took a long walk home, in deep self reflection.
That is when I felt my masculinity.
"What is masculinity?" I'd say the stereotypical version. The image men mostly think of are famous celebrities, soilders, Mafia and fiction characters.
Being "masculine" won't matter if that dosen't make a man happy.
Others Expectations, can create limitations.
A man should seek to be his ideal self. First he was to Invision it, and then go after it.
I was in acting, musicals and I sings a bit. That stuff isn't traditionally masculine. Granted, I don't do it anymore. For the entertainment industry is fucking disgusting.
"Power" is what gives one force. A type of energy that makes you pause.
