Red pill sourcelist

I do not commonly refer to America as a “funhouse” merely because it is a funny metaphor. I believe our culture aggressively erodes the emotional equilibrium of its subjects. The disequilibrium we feel in a funhouse is the same emotion as the fascination we feel for Jersey Shore (for some value of “we”).

It is intoxicating and addictive, but it is evil. Bearing the telltale signs, it works slowly, deliberately, patiently exploiting the weaknesses of the human psyche. The proprietors of filth have various motivations (wealth, power, et al.), many of them are highly intelligent, and some of them are very old. And I mean very old.

But for all that, a small rock can shatter a thousand painstakingly crafted mirrors. You can depend on a rock. You can build your house upon it and lay your fears to rest. Modern men worry too much about the tide.

Very occasionally I’ll happen upon a source of information (an author, usually) containing so much raw, unvarnished truth that it will shatter nigh on decades of blue pill propaganda, socially acceptable lies, and mimetic cultural tropes. That’s what the truth can do. I live to find such gems in the rough. It’s my greatest source of inspiration—in the etymological sense (it gives me breath and drives my blood). It is an addiction as healthy as a funhouse is destructive.

Such as this inspired Handel to write his Messiah, the only masterpiece to grace a composer of tertiary talent.

Raw, uncut diamonds.

I do not yet possess the knowledge to transform these stones into beautiful treasures. But I am something of a collector.

    Do you own “Human Action” or “The Underground History…”? I don’t have access to a quality library. My snobbish school would be ashamed to hear that I haven’t read their economics Bible and the school one sounded interesting even though it looks like a behemoth!
