Happy New Year From Regarding Men
The holidays are often a mixed bag of celebration and feelings of isolation. Even for the Blue Pill world, the experience of Thanksgiving and Christmas can be bittersweet. Family wounds last and the holidays have their own unique way of reviving memories, good and bad.
For the Red Pill world, the dichotomy is even more pronounced. It’s the time of year when so many men are reminded of what has been taken from them. A reminder of alienated children who no longer take their calls; of family court grinches who destroy families rather than help reconstruct them; of women who promised undying love and loyalty but who delivered heartbreaking betrayal instead.
It’s the time of year when we are surrounded by the superficial imagery of human connection and family love but when a closer look at the lives of millions betrays a different truth. There are children, trapped in emotional turmoil, who endlessly mourn the loss of fathers, many wrongly blaming themselves for the breakup of the family. Many others are marching to the mother’s alienating tune, blaming the father for the family’s breakup and the poverty of money and love that’s often the result of divorce.
Yes, it’s a time of love, and sadly for many a time of pain. It’s enough to breed cynicism in even the most optimistic of men. A cynical view of life and love, however, is a poor outcome for humans. We are not wired for a disconnected existence. Simply put, we need each other. We always have.
And, I am happy to say, that all my years of digging into the heartbreak of men has left me anything but jaded. I am instead left with the incontrovertible certainty that the ingenuity and basic goodness of men is inexhaustible. It was this combination of brilliance, goodness and moral clarity that gave birth to Red Pill philosophy.
And it is this philosophy that can insulate men, legions of them if they so choose, from the hateful bias inflicted on them. And it can spare them the illusory protection of rage and fearful isolation. Out of these ashes, brotherhood can rise, and is doing so even as you read this holiday message.
On behalf of Regarding Men, and as we enter the new decade, you are invited to rise and be a vital part of that loving, fraternal embrace.
Happy New Year to you all.
