I just finished Freedom Twenty-five‘s book Freedom Twenty-Five: A 21st-Century Man’s Guide To Life, and I had one of those aha! moments:
American society is seriously fucked up
Freedom Twenty-five’s excellent book ended up the topic of purpose. My generation is really lost. Unlike the Boomer Generation who venerated being rebellious, self-indulgent and free-lovin’, Generation Y doesn’t have purpose or direction, much less motivation. I know so many men who have no effin’ clue what they want in life. So many men who are dropping out of college, staying at home with their basements just playing video games, or just smoking weed and fuckin’ ho’s (not such a bad reality actually) And with the women? I know plenty who drank the GRRLL POWER kool-aid feminism that many of them are just pursuing careers like bitches in heat seeking some lovin’. Our women are uber ambitious, sleeping with whoever and as many men as their vaginas demand because they think they can be like men (rather stinky shit, right), proclaim to every goddamn worthless man out there that “I’m strong and independent, bitches!”
Oh what happened to softness, femininity, nurture, and love?
Anyways, here are my thoughts as to why shit stinks in America in 2011:
- Obesity and Fat Acceptance – Goddamn fat whales and walruses populate the streets and supermarkets of this country. Everywhere you go in America, you’re more or less guaranteed to find someone you may accidentally mistaken for Jabba the Hut or a guest from The Jerry Springer Show. I have to admit that I am slightly obese and have been dealing with my weight for a long time. I have lost weight and expect to be physically fit within three months. But if I had grown up in Asia or Europe, I am confident that I wouldn’t have grown up nearly as fat. Why are Americans fat? Our culture is okay with overeating and eating pure crap! When foreigners think of what is quintessential American food, they think of… McDonlald’s and KFC. Shit, and how about Japanese food? Sushi. French food? Escargot and baguettes. Chinese food? Rice and noodles. Damn, is it any wonder we’re such a fat people? I am not proud to be fat unlike these fatties. And so here’s the other stinky shit: why are Americans advocating for fat acceptance? Fat people must work to lose their fat and become healthy, vibrant individuals capable of touching their own damn toes. Fat is not acceptable. It is downright dangerous for one’s health and a cost to the country in health, social, infrastructure, resources… the list goes on. Think about this reality. If 70+% of a country’s people are overweight or obese, where will its police officers, astronauts, soldiers, firefighters, and other important professions come from? Any society with the amount of glutton and morbidity is fucked up. Need I say more?
- The Breakdown of the Family and Rise of Promiscuity – It’s official, less than 50% of Americans are married. Also, 40% of all babies are born out-of-wedlock now. Our culture is as self-centered and materialistic as it gets. The devolution from strong, patriarchal families to disconnected, lost single-parent families in America is almost complete. Single mothers are everywhere and their poor children are far more likely to become pussy-fied or delinquent men or promiscuous, slutty women. Their children are more likely to become drug addicts, alcoholics, criminals, prostitutes, etc. When I was younger, I never understood why the family unit was so important. I always thought that families were just composed of separate individuals with different agendas. Well, after traveling a bit, I realized that family is the foundational bedrock of any civilization, particularly large, sophisticated, durable ones like the West, Orthodox Russia or China. Essentially, whole societies could continue for long epochs of time because they emphasized men and women marrying young and producing children, which begot the next generation. Think of every single major civilization and culture in this world. Think of the West, Russia, China, India, Islamic caliphates, Ancient Rome, Persia, etc. Each and every single one was built by strong men in patriarchal systems. Systems that let men be men and women be women, and ones that made sure children were born and raised by two parents. Now, the American family is quickly disintegrating and the future seems uncertain. Ghettos are expanding in many American cities as single mothers raise delinquent children. The black community in the States has more or less reached large-scale ghettos and Hispanics are closing close behind. It’ll only be a matter of time until mainstream America fosters large ghettos.
- A Culture of Self-Centeredness, Narcissism and Apathy – I’m not sure if I can find scientific studies or statistics for this claim, but I sure damn well know that my generation is as self-centered, narcissistic, and apathetic, particularly the women. We live in a “ME, ME, ME” culture where individuals have only self-invested interests, disregarding most others. We have one-night stands with each other, treating each other like disposable sex objects. We buy the latest gadgets and fashion, while we load on thousands of dollars of credit card debt and college tuition. And we don’t give a rat’s ass of politics. Our culture looks down on intelligent, informed people in many circles, and the girls certainly don’t feel turned on by geeks and nerds in this country. No society can survive if its members just care about themselves. Oh wait, I do have an article on the women.
- American women are an international disgrace – What can I say? American girls suck, usually Why? They’re career-driven, often fat or obese, butch, masculine in personality, spoiled, slutty, self-centered, slovenly, arrogant, can’t cook or hate cooking, think men are scum, lacking in femininity, charmless, cold, indifferent, frigid, and feminists when it benefits them. Don’t believe me? There are whole books written on the poor state of American women. Hell, even other countries don’t like America women. Now someone will tell me that American men suck because they’re fat, lazy, and commitment-phobic. However, when American men travel abroad to Latin America, Asia and many other countries, many, many women love us. Abroad, we have a good reputation for being humane, family oriented, faithful, handsome men. It also helps that the US is still the richest, most powerful country in the world. In Taiwan, I get more attention when girls realize I’m American, and even a girl bought me a drink before. There are also thousands of websites and agencies that connect American men with foreign women. Look it up on google! The simple fact is that American men are highly prized in most of the world because we have a reputation of generally treating women very well, having enlightened attitudes about gender relations, and being more faithful and stable than many non-American men.
These are just a few aspects about America that stink. Let me know if you have any others. I’d like to hear your opinion.
