"Brothers Are Doing It For Themselves!"By In many respects, women’s needs have been placed above those of others since time began; typified by when disaster’s strike and a call for ‘women and children first’ is sounded. Unfortunately, this alongside decades of the women’s movement a disturbing result exists today: a supposedly progressive society that is, in fact, highly discriminatory and that extols humiliation, distrust and abhorrence towards all males. This potentially induces some men to isolate themselves. But a growing number of males have decided that enough is enough, and that it is time to counter a trend that has damaged them. As history’s true masters of the universe, men are again taking matters into their own hands, sculpting masculine destinies free of the misandry, abuse, and isolation that has become commonplace in recent years.
Among the movements playing a critical role in this struggle to overcome the wrongs are Red Pill Awareness, Men Going Their Own Way (MGTOW) and Japan’s Herbivore Men. Collectively, they and groups like them represent a world-wide brotherhood of the modern men’s liberation movement. It has an increasing fanfare of female advocates who are forward-thinking individuals with the intent on empowering men forward.
They and the Red Pill men are also keeping an eye out for men who have been waylaid into a so-called isolated existence, by women who have systematically secluded their partners from friends and family.
The online organizations such as A Voice for Men and MGTOW.com have raised awareness about male social isolation and about what is right… as far as any male is concerned. Certainly, there are some men who consider a hermit-like existence to be blissful, and the notion of being inaccessible to other people is not necessarily a bad thing. However, evidence suggests that enforced social isolation among males is a growing epidemic that has had tragic physical, mental and emotional consequences, including promulgating shame, low self-esteem, and substance use; all increasing the numbers of male suicides. They may also feel unwanted, unrewarded and depressed, overwhelmed with self-loathing and a sense of hopelessness. First, isolation needs to be defined.
Admittedly, many view social isolation and loneliness as one and the same, but there is a difference. When a person is lonely, it generally stems from a temporary lack of contact with others or a particular loved one. However, when someone is isolated, it reflects a complete or near-complete separation of interaction between that individual and all other people. It doesn’t have to be caused by tangible barriers or direct intervention. A man weighed down by the struggle to feed his family, or whose children have been cut off or taken away from him by an ex-wife, can readily fall into such a state.
But once we know what to look for, and then take the necessary steps to either prevent it from happening or to reverse a slide toward deeper isolation that has already begun, then we can make a big difference when it comes to somebody who is at risk. In the case of Red Pill men, for example, they are becoming well attuned to such developments in an effort to limit and prevent it from happening to themselves and their brothers. Even given the fact that men typically don’t need or rely on others as much as women; Red Pill men can turn things around for themselves.
Abolishing Social Isolation
Indeed, as the most resourceful beings on Earth, we men can use our inherent ingenuity to address such difficulties. It takes desire, creativity, and an open mind:
- Adopt a pet.
- Smile and say “hello!”
- Maintain a daily regimen.
There are many times when I say “good morning” to everyone I meet–even the homeless men wobbling slowly to their feet as the sunshine unfolds. When I do this I know that I am intentionally radiating energy outward toward others, and yet somehow I also feel a warm glow myself. Perhaps it is a kind of karma? Regardless, I share in this way because it can give meaning and a personal connection to a boring little 6 a.m. walk around the streets of San Francisco.
- Invite someone into your life.
Studies have found that connecting with friends, family and coworkers can help those who are single to improve their health and increase survival. Most of us have a hobby or interest – hunting, fishing, camping or hiking; landscaping or gardening; church, traveling or going to concerts; taking classes, playing sports, lifting or fighting; or metalworking and the fine arts – that others may be interested in. Why not take the lead and ask one or more friends to join you? If you can, pick up the tab and make it easy for them. Don’t be shy about sharing the moments that you love.
A few years ago, I bought 10 days worth of tickets to see the San Francisco Giants at nearby AT&T Park, where the thrill and comradery of witnessing a home run hit on the home field is always electric. I invited various friends to come along and join me at the center of the action. While some paid their way, most did not, but that really didn’t matter.
One Saturday afternoon, I took a coworker and her father, Ed, to a game. Even though the old man had lived in the East Bay all his life, he had never been at the stadium alongside 40,000 cheering fans. As his family’s sole provider, he had spent most of his life working his fingers to the bone. But now, as the Giants pounded out three homers, you could see he was really enjoying himself. When he passed away a few years later, I was happy that I was the one who had given him such a memorable experience. To this day, it still warms my heart.
Red Pill warriors around the world are avoiding placing women before themselves and instead are developing self-awareness, building a male-centric infrastructure that can facilitate appropriate interaction whenever needed. Most thank their lucky stars as they look forward to a drama-free life of personal freedom and genuine masculinity. Governments need not help because the paradigm shift is here and the brothers are doing it for themselves. Any man who needs help can reach out to comrades in the MGTOW and men’s movements, where many lives have already been saved.
