Appropriate Intensity

If you’re reading this, I assume you’re very “red-pilled”. I also assume you care about making the world a better place. We need to meet people where they are, however. If your friend is in a dangerous drug addiction they can’t go straight to having white babies and raising them peacefully. There has to be a progression. In the same vein, if your society is profoundly sick you have to introduce marginal improvements to get to something healthy.

That can be immensely frustrating when you’re more aware than the average person. We desperately need to change our ways, and we need to do it quickly. I empathize with those who call for acceleration and “radical extremism”. We need that feeling of urgency and purpose. It’s real. But before we can change the policies of the government, we need to change the attitudes of our people. We need to develop a strong and responsible group of people who can assume the State’s power and use it in the best way possible.

If you’re hanging out with your friends and some of them might not be completely on board with your politics yet, you need to embrace that boundary. Ask questions, don’t get confrontational, they will learn with time if they have a curious soul and they care about your friendship. There’s a caveat here, which is that I assume the other person is actually curious and that the relationship is otherwise enjoyable. Don’t spend more time around enemies (people you can’t talk with) than you need to.

There’s also the possibility of not being intense enough. If your best friend is about to throw himself off a bridge and you just stand next to him all relaxed, you’ve got a problem.  In times of emergency, you get as serious and active as the situation warrants. When you are aware of problems in society, you have a responsibility to your fellows. I want to recognize that.

I invite everyone to check their intensity and measure it against your standards. Am I doing what is best for my people, myself and my future children by acting this way? That’s what I ask myself. I want us to win, and I believe great courage, empathy and reason will be necessary.

Best of luck in the Culture War.
