Emotions Are a Woman's Luxury

Picture a woman screaming and cursing at someone in public. They would merely be labeled a "Karen,” if they are not an actual victim of something legitimate. Now picture a man doing the same. Which of these has a higher likelihood of having the cops called on them?

Emotions are a woman's luxury.

Imagine a woman posting a video of her crying on Twitter because she's fallen into poverty. Now picture a man doing the same. The woman will draw sympathy and the man will draw shame. He will become a meme.

Emotions are a woman's luxury.

Women have the luxury of using their emotions for persuasion. She is only rivaled by children. Women, like children, express themselves with tantrums. This is a luxury man is not afforded. If a man throws a tantrum, a woman, and the individuals of the greater society, are naturally turned off. She will likely seek another mate. This male is not a man, in this case.

Discipline is the backbone of a man's success. Discipline is the mastery of emotions. If a man succumbs to his emotions this will become his greatest roadblock to success. For example, the feelings of fear and doubt kill more dreams than communists. If a man falls victim to these negative thought patterns he will become so crippled that he will be unable to fulfill his ultimate potential. Pity will not come to his aid like it will for a woman. Men never have the luxury of pity.

Men, being the backbone of the family, the provider for the family, and the teacher of emotional mastery cannot himself be a victim of his emotions. His female counterpart learns emotional mastery from him. His children learn this from him. The man who was raised by a single mother will be at a disadvantage because there is no male role model to demonstrate to him emotional mastery.

If the man breaks down the family breaks down. Woman cannot be both disciplinarian and nurturer. These two roles are diametrically opposed because discipline requires a cold approach while nurture is warmth.

The baby will cry, the children will cry, and the mother will cry. If the man is crying who will support the family? The answer is GOVERNMENT! A lapse in masculinity is an opportunity for government interference. Uncle Sam becomes daddy.

Emotions are natural for all human beings. However, a man has no luxury or time to allow them to persist for even a moment. A lapse in emotional control may lead to a life of despair. When anger controls a man danger is looming; for himself and others. That moment of anger may land him in jail or in a grave.

A man must be alone with his emotions. The internets says, "A man crying in front of a woman is like bleeding in front a shark." A man's emotions are a woman's greatest weapon. See the stories of women manipulating kings and princes for example. A man is especially unsafe in sharing his emotions with other men. They will become weapons!

"What are friends? Friends are people that you think are your friends but they're really your enemies, with secret identities and disguises, to hide their true colors. So just when you think you're close enough to be brothers they want to come back and cut your throat when you ain't lookin'"

Eminem "If I had" (Marshall Mathers LP)

The only place where a man's emotions are safe is within himself. However, he must learn to find releases. One must understand that many emotions are chemical reactions in the brain. The mind can be tricked into happiness with exercise due to the dopamine hit. That is why working out is the cornerstone to masculinity.

Consider the hypothetical case of a man who can have anything he wants just by wishing for it. Such a man has power, but he will develop serious psychological problems. At first he will have a lot of fun, but by and by he will become acutely bored and demoralized. Eventually he may become clinically depressed. History shows that leisured aristocracies tend to become decadent. This is not true of fighting aristocracies that have to struggle to maintain their power. But leisured, secure aristocracies that have no need to exert themselves usually become bored, hedonistic and demoralized, even though they have power. This shows that power is not enough. One must have goals toward which to exercise one’s power.

Thus, in order to avoid serious psychological problems, a human being needs goals whose attainment requires effort, and he must have a reasonable rate of success in attaining his goals.

Industrial Society and its Future, Theodore Kaczynski

Ted was right! This industrial age has ruined man to a certain degree. The lack of fulfilling challenges leave man with no purpose and so anxiety sets in. During the hunter phase of humanity, surviving was challenge enough. The thrill of the hunt or fishing satisfied that desire. The luxuries of American life leave man purposeless. So, each man must seek out challenges. For me, it is chess. The difficulty of chess will leave me occupied for life.

I am also an author, currently of three bodies of work; marketing and branding, masculinity, and American history. The task of research and writing is a challenge which fulfills my soul.

“An idle mind is the devil's workshop.”

If a man keeps himself occupied he will have no time for emotions. And that is the goal. Keep the mind occupied! The powers that be are relentless in their encroachment on our God-given freedoms. Masculinity and knowledge are their greatest enemies. This is why they dumb us down and effeminize men. If we lapse into emotions for even a moment we will become slaves. This is the great responsibility of men.

Emotions are a woman's luxury.
