It weighs heavy on my heart when I see men of wisdom and influence swerve away from others that have similar purpose. I feel that the opposition, whether actual or proverbial, benefit from our schisms. I feel that it is often fool hardy that we have allowed unsettled beefs and disagreements push us further away, complicating our arrival at improvements or common goals. People have found it to be satisfying to split off in their own direction but I choose not to give in to schisms.
I have seen men of great aims and decent knowledge find reasons to attack each other. This is especially true of men that have imparted ideas and men that have helped me grow as a man. I give the example of the split of the “Red Man Group”. Yes, there is still a Red Man Group. But it has had many of its notable members “split off” from it due to an alleged breach of privacy and subsequent arguments afterward. (I do not claim to know all of the facts involving any events, arguments, or legal issues. I have only been able to gleam a few actual accusations). I know of many people on both sides of the schism that have helped many men, not just me. Anthony Johnson (https://the21convention.org/) has a unique platform and organization. He has allowed for a collection of men’s voices to be heard. Rollo Tomassi’s (https://therationalmale.com/) works are beyond informative. BLL (Gendernomics)(https://blacklabellogic.com/) is very entertaining and thought provoking to me. Rian Stone (https://www.rianstone.com/blog) helps warn men of the pitfalls of the tradcon upbringing. Rich Cooper (Entrepreneurs in Cars)(https://www.youtube.com/user/EntrepreneursInCars) reminds us to take care of ourselves and not fall asleep at life’s proverbial wheel. There are decent people on both sides. I am not a party to either the Rule Zero/Red Morning crews, 21 Studios, or Red Man Group. I am interested in good information and ways to improve myself. I do like competition but I don’t like sniping of gentleman on either side. I find it counterproductive.
Not to exclude anyone but I have it way heavy on my heart that people I know from the blogging world, especially people within the sphere of writers that can be considered “red pillesque”, pro male, or even the red pill adjacent religious types. I have seen informative and entertaining works from many. But I have also seen “unpurposeful” attacks on each other. I have two people whose works that I subscribe to that have started their own schisms, including individual “soldiers” lining up for an occasional skirmish.
I don’t take sides. I wish these people would quash their beefs like it was “olden times” and be gentleman. I have seen shitty feminists (and astrocucks) fund huge failing websites with horrific writing while quality writing from our side of the culture war dies because of infighting. I would rather be the guy that tells you that you are both being assholes than a person who picks sides.
Let’s get back to work. The shittiest people in history are winning because we squabble. If we are going to be separate entities; put our “hate” into our work and leave folks on our side out of it. Go back to helping men and living better lives. Men on the margins and younger impressionable men need the help.
