There are few things more disgusting than a morally weak man who will pay any price to avoid making enemies. He is so worried about how he is perceived that he cannot be trusted to make sound judgments in any moral conflict. Almost always, he takes a knee when he should be standing firm; almost always, he gives up ground that he should be holding.
If only he would realize that a pound of early resistance is worth a ton of counter revolutionary warfare. Of course, he doesn’t get the point because his main concern is to remain popular with the people who are supposed to matter.
Consider a contemporary social problem. Violent mobs are destroying parts of cities, tearing down statues, looting at will, and injuring (sometimes killing) innocent people. Yet no one is doing anything about it. Where are the community leaders who are supposed to be preserving order, especially those who call themselves political conservatives?
These girlish men are so terrified that someone will accuse them of being a racist — or a murderer — that they refuse to put an end to these outrages. At times, they even ask their policemen to stand down, even when the motives of the lawbreakers are political and have nothing to do with any just grievance. Members and leaders of these mobs have made it clear that their ultimate purpose is to drive Donald Trump out of office. They are all self-identified “Marxists.”
As indicated, lawlessness usually manifests itself in stages and this problem is no different. First, it was the social pressure applied by the thought police, followed by the physical threats courtesy of violence-inciting politicians (Thank you, Maxine Waters), leading to the physical violence perpetrated by the mobs (Thank you, Black Lives Matter).
It begins with “I can’t endure your point of view, please find a safe space for me,” morphs into “if you disagree with me, just shut up,” expands into “if you don’t shut up, I will hurt you,” and ends with “perhaps these fists pounding into your face will make my point.” Goodbye to civil discourse — goodbye to honest dialogue — goodbye to reason and evidence-based debate.
A real man, when he is being smeared and slandered, will take charge early, hold his ground, and insist on his God-given right to speak freely. He turns the tables and asks the trouble-makers to explain themselves and their rationale. Having reframed the issue, he is now on the offense
But the feminized man remains on defense, explains himself unrestrainedly, and apologizes to the barbarians for “offending” them, setting the stage for phase 2. Barbarians are experts at detecting the weakness associated with unprincipled blathering. Because most leaders are feminized men, the barbarians are winning.
The barbarians I can endure, though with great difficulty. But please God, spare me from the pusillanimous, pandering, peace-at-any-cost, girly men.
