Which leaves us with a low crediblility source and plausible deniability for King 🤷♂️
@MrWolf1X1 that's the kind of crap we need in <#668911399635910666> for motivation. Disgusting leftist men should be ample motivation for right wingers to sort themselves out. If you're not motivated by this then you have deeper issues.
Yeah, that essay is pretty horrific and damning.
In his favour though, it was written during his second year at seminary. A bunch of you fellas in here are that young and know how radical your opinions can swing. It's likely not a representation of his later views, perhaps there's later writing of his that would be more instructive?
Branching out from discussion in <#668911890260426777> for a more focused discussion.
This whole Wuhan pandemic panic, following on from VA boogaloo, following on from WW3, etc. etc. They're all 4chan tier habbenings that are fun and feed you a bit of dopamine but it's identical to the rage bait that the left always indulges in and the right gets sucked in to on moral issues. Outrage is fine, being aware of global issues is fine, but the internet, our connectedness and social media in particular makes us internalise it way more than justified.
So for self improvement, consider dealing with your addition to habbenings and your tendencies to seek out and engage in collective outrage. Try and find a more balanced state.
Start by shifting your mindset: there are two circles, one inside the other. The larger circle is your circle of concern. It's the sphere of all things you concern yourself with, mainly the things you deal with on an emotional level. The things that make you outraged and the things you obsessively seek out information on.
The inner circle is your circle of influence. It's the sphere within which you can exert control, the space where you can meaningfully impact change.
A major problem among connected people today is that the circle of concern is massive, far too big. Coupled with lies we tell ourselves about how big our circle of influence is.
Your circle of influence us fairly small. You can rage in social media but you may as well be raging into a mirror. You're not changing anything.
Your circle of concern drives your mental and emotional health. If you can't do anything about it, do you want it eating away at you? Saturating your system with dopamine and other stress hormones?
Be enraged at the things that impact you and your loved ones. Go deal with the drag queen story hour they're enforcing on your kids. But don't spend your days glued to the internet looking for tiny snippets of information about habbenings that are going to have exactly zero impact on your real life. You have so many better ways of spending your time. Go work out, get buff, lose weight, read the western cannon, sort yourself out.
Let the left spiral while we get strong.
That's such a tedious book. I can't recommend even though it's in the dystopian canon. Short, but tedious.
What have you done to improve yourself this week?
That's a very high quality ramble from Yarvin, a vanguard in action. I really enjoyed that and it's kind of inspiring too.
He didn't spend in Iowa tho did he? I thought he wrote that one off cause of timing.
A suggestion was made at my church study group to watch a documentary that tackles some of the institutionalised racism in this country. We also capped off the night with a prayer that the carona virus won't spark racism.
No I didn't speak out, large group, boomer-heavy, the type of people who mostly mindlessly absorb culture. Not going to marginalise myself into a corner where I have no social options. This is the challenge of the irl reactionary.
"Find a better group", yeah, like reactionaries advertise themselves freely. I'm only in this discord because I have no irl options.
To be fair, these are isolated cases, not from leadership. If it was a trend then I'd be taking action - either leaving or interjecting that we could be doing things more relevant to spiritual growth, because it's really obvious that this crap is irrelevant to the purpose of the group.
I don't trust John Mark, something's not right with him.
"I don't really think that would be a valuable use of time, but perhaps a discussion about how anti-racism has become the new secular religion and the wisdom of Christians engaging with it"
Just not sure I want to open that pandoras box with this particular group.
Steered my study group into a discussion about the insidiousness if modern culture and the way it oozes into the church. We bring it in on our boots on Sundays and it impacts all our interactions and even teaching unless we are rigorous and strong.
Much more reactionary than last week's anti racism vibe. Even had one individual expressing almost polar opposite perspectives on modern culture and pop morality.
Hopefully some will wake up, and who knows, I might find a kindred reactionary amongst them.
