The pussification of Western society and how to overcome it – Return Of Kings

The average man today has slumped shoulders, an expanding waistline, is indecisive and exhibits an overall timid nature. It illustrates the pussification of Western society. But what causes this? Why are men today less manly than in the past? Is it because of the rise of feminism? Porn addiction? Processed foods? Environmental toxins? I would say yes – all of these factors are contributory. But the real reason for this decline in masculinity is something quite different. And once we address this root cause, all other factors become irrelevant.

But before we dive in, let’s discuss what it means to be a man in the first place…

What does it mean to be a man?

This is a question that will receive many different answers depending on who you ask it. But if you asked the philosopher king Marcus Aurelius (or any of the ancient Stoics for that matter), he would tell you that to be a man means to live in virtue. In fact, the root of the word virtue is “virtus”, which means virility in Latin. The four cardinal virtues that the Stoics adhered to were 1) wisdom, 2) justice, 3) courage, and 4) temperance.

Wisdom is knowledge of life, and the ultimate Stoic wisdom is to concern yourself only with the factors that are within your control. What are these factors? Your thoughts and behaviors. Nothing else. Never play the victim. If you have a problem, ask yourself if there is anything you can do to fix it. Yes? Then get to work. Nope? So don’t worry.

Justice is living in integrity with your ideals. When we live with integrity, there is correspondence between our intentions and our actions. When we live without integrity, we procrastinate on the actions that would move us towards our goals.

Strength is courage. The courage to make decisions based on standards rather than emotions. The courage to do what needs to be done, whether you feel like it or not.

Temperance is self-control. A self-master is engaged in the constant pursuit of closing the gap between where he is and where he knows he is capable of being. He understands that there is no finish line and progress is the only way forward.

This is a brief overview of the four cardinal virtues that embody what it means to be a man. If you want me to go deeper into them in another article, let me know in the comments. But now, let’s dive into the root cause of the crisis of masculinity as we face it today.

The real reason men are less manly than they used to be

The first humans walked the earth more than 5 million years ago. Through the trials and tribulations of harsh environments and dangerous predators, nature has slowly shaped us into who we are today. Man has taken control of his environment, tamed the wilderness, sailed the oceans, conquered nations and even walked on the moon.

You and I are the refined result of countless iterations of evolution. You were designed to be strong, fearless, confident and powerful. The desire for greatness has been hard-coded into your DNA. Why, then, do none of these characteristics seem apparent in the average man? Well, that’s because we were born into a modern world with minds and bodies designed for something very different.

Genetically, we haven’t changed much in the last 100,000 years. Technologically, however, we have progressed exponentially. We were born into a world of instant gratification, social media, and Domino delivery with brains designed to hunt woolly mammoths and fight saber-toothed tigers.

The real reason men are less manly than they used to be is because we no longer have to exercise our masculinity. The human brain is a very efficient machine that was designed to save resources. This is another way of saying that we are lazy by nature. Since the environment no longer forces us to rise, the majority of men succumb to the temptation of the path of least resistance.

Our primary motivations are survival and reproduction. No matter where a man stands in the strata of Western society, he is likely to scrounge up enough food and water to survive. As for reproduction, most men are chronic masturbators and trick their brains into believing they are reproducing. Once the primary desires are satisfied, it is very easy to fall back into comfort. To become a masculine man, however, you must exert the evolutionary pressure on yourself. You have to force yourself to grow.

How to Reclaim Your Masculinity

Yes, society is feminizing and there are many forces trying to suppress your masculinity. But if you let these factors hold you back, then you’re nothing but a pussified bluepill beta cuckold. To reclaim your masculinity, you must exercise your masculinity. If you don’t use it, you lose it. How do you exercise your masculinity?

Well, the first step is to clarify your path and your goal. Your thoughts and behaviors are the only things you have control over, so always make sure they are directed to an end. Know the expected result of your actions. Begin with the end in mind.

The second step is to live with integrity. Stick to your commitments. Keep a daily to-do list and complete it. Do what you said you were going to do. Keep your word to yourself.

The third step is to develop courage. Take cold showers. Cold women approach. Practice martial arts. Make yourself comfortable being uncomfortable.

And finally, understand that mastery is a never-ending process. Life is about climbing one mountain peak after another. Each mountain you conquer reveals the view of a completely new landscape. There is always another level. And with each new level, there is a different devil. If you don’t grow, you die.

God speed.
