Our current world
“In a society in which nearly everybody is dominated by somebody else’s mind or by a disembodied mind, it becomes increasingly difficult to learn the truth about the activities of governments and corporations, about the quality or value of products, or about the health of one’s own place and economy. In such a society, also, our private economies will depend less upon the private ownership of real, usable property, and more upon property that is institutional and abstract, beyond individual control, such as money, insurance policies, certificates of deposit, stocks, etc. And as our private economies become more abstract, the mutual, free helps and pleasures of family and community life will be supplanted by a kind of displaced citizenship and by commerce with impersonal and self-interested suppliers… The great enemy of freedom is the alignment of political power with wealth. This alignment destroys the commonwealth – that is, the natural wealth of localities and the local economies of household, neighborhood, and community – and so destroys democracy, of which the commonwealth is the foundation and practical means.” –
Don’t Be an Embarrassment to Masculinity
“To have sex you have to exchange. You are affected by someone else and someone else is affected by you. It amazes me how much we run from this. We try and control sex and dominate and so on, but at its core we are meant to be influenced by one another. Feel someone else and let them feel you.
First you need to realize Monogamy, Polyamory, being a ‘Player’ are all man-made concepts. Your body, your emotions and your sex drive doesn’t care about any of those. It is going to feel what it is going to feel. If you have disciplined yourself in these concepts and you have no experience behind them you’re going to find yourself quickly abandoning them to the overwhelming feeling of love, sex and desire. There is nothing weak about this.
If you make a mistake and fall in love too fast, make too many commitments or get someone pregnant and you’re not ready for it, it is ok to back out of everything. As much as your closest friends may judge you, family members turn their backs and the person you loved now hates and vilifies you, it is not an excuse to do something you’re not ready to do.” – Steve Mayeda
Listen to hear, not to respond.
What sex means to you? Do you do it because you want to dominate over women? Do you want it because you strive for intimate connection on a deeper level? Do you just want to get rid of your semen? Maybe it’s a mixture of every reason that I have mentioned? As one old sage once said, you should always surround yourself with women younger than yourself as the older ones will take away your vital energy and the young ones will replenish it.
