Masculine Pride versus Patriarchy

Josh Hawley delivered a keynote address to the National Conservatism Conference on October 31, 2021 with the title “The Future of the American Man.”  Josh Hawley was elected Senator from Missouri in the November 2018 election beating the incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill 51% to 46%; Donald Trump won Missouri 57% to 41% in the 2020 election.

This speech is quite interesting, inspiring I would say, but there is something missing from it.  What is missing from it is not obvious, it would certainly not be obvious from the mainstream culture point of view, but it is noticeable to me.

Taking the God Pill Expands

I see myself as a Traditionalist, someone who believes in and follows Natural Law, someone who is to obey God or the Superior Power, but I don’t believe in God in a literal sense and I am not a Christian; I am an atheist.  I see evolution as the creation mechanism or the source of order in the world; what defines the nature of man and the nature of woman and what leads to how men and women should relate to each other; patriarchy, traditional patriarchy, being how men and women should relate to each other.

The Traditionalist Challenge to Modernity in the Catholic Church

The Catholic Church, or at least Catholics, have a reputation for being liberals; it is Evangelical Christians who are known as being conservatives or at least tied to the Republican Party and more recently specifically being supporters of Donald Trump.  In the lead up to the 2020 election, according to a survey conducted by Pew Research Center in October 2020, 78% of White Evangelical Protestants intended to vote for Trump, 53% of White non-Evangelical Protestants intended to vote for Trump, and 52% of White Catholics intended to vote for Trump (Who won the Christian vote in the 2020 U.S. election? It’s complicated).  So Mainline Protestants and Catholics are about the same politically while Evangelical Protestants stand out as being particularly conservative.  Now, you could divide the White Catholic vote between those who attend mass regularly and those who do not, Catholics in Name Only, you might say, and you will find that those who attended mass regularly voted for Trump much more than those who do not attend mass regularly.

Patriarchy and Collectivism

Anthony Johnson said on August 21, 2021 on twitter:

“The attack on ‘individualism’ from the right today is stupid and misguided. Tradcon collectivism, a false dichotomy. You are playing into the hands of your enemies. The entire basis of individual rights is individualism > collectivism. USA was founded on individualism 100%.”

Patriarchy is collectivist by nature I would say.  Historically, traditionally certainly actual patriarchal cultures that worked and functioned well in the past were collectivist in terms of their social organization and their social rules, they were collectivist in regards to family life at least.

Eighth Year Anniversary for Secular Patriarchy!

Today is the 8 year anniversary of this website here, Secular Patriarchy.

The biggest news I would say in this neck of the woods, in the part of the manosphere that I am closest to, is that Anthony Dream Johnson has made another significant move towards traditionalism, a move I highly approve of of course, and that is that Anthony Johnson has recently started to emphasize that women shouldn’t work, that women should place marriage and having children as their first priority when they are young, and an emphasis that mothers should stay at home and raise their children, not place their children in daycare.

The Clay and Buck Show

Rush Limbaugh was born in January 1951 and launched his spectacularly successful conservative talk show radio program in July 1988 on WABC in New York City.  Rush met nationwide success very quickly after this; him being 37 years old at the time.

Further thoughts on my prior post: Women Have Value!

Lori, responding to my “Women Have Value!” post, said:

“It seems that your sexism and inclination towards patriarchy was present in you even before you consciously adopted your patriarchal philosophy. This is clear from the fact that it was a revelation to you in your late teens that women have value and that you only recognized our value in response to your romantic attraction to one of us. This solipsism is mind boggling even for a teenager. And yet even now you seem to view our value only in very narrow terms that you define. You do not love women as we are. You only love an ideal of what you think we are or what you think we should be. This controlling mindset is not love.”

Idealism leads to Patriarchy and Selfishness leads to Feminism

Lori recently said in a comment at this website:

“Feminism is not at all predicated on the notion that men are bad. It is predicated on that notion that power by men over women is bad. Feminists do not want to be subject to good men any more than we want to be subject to bad men – just as you do not wish to be subject to a woman, no matter how wise and good she may be.”

The Meaning of Candace Owens Making Her Husband a Sandwich

I am in favor of patriarchy and I am in favor of traditional gender roles, I am in favor of the 1950s family model of the wife staying at home with the kids while the man goes off to work to make the money.

Candace Owens made an interesting tweet on March 16, 2021 where she stated:

“Making my husband a sandwich is not submissive. Cooking for your family is not submissive. Yes, a good woman should take care of her family. And yes, a good man does the same.”

My Reflections on Rush Limbaugh

I first listened to Rush Limbaugh in 1992 or 1993 I would say.  There was some hype and excitement about a new rising star and personality, a controversial figure, on the radio, and I intentionally sought him out to see what all the fuss was about, to see what I thought about him.  I had a general understanding of Democrats and Republicans at that time; Democrats were for the poor and Republicans were for the rich.  Democrats represented the interests of the less fortunate and Republicans represented the interests of the more fortunate; that was the basic way that I saw things.
