Reed Perry on Patriarchy & Wealth

Two unmissable pieces from Reed Perry over at Social Matter, the first discussing ‘A Patriarchal Restoration Theory’, and the second discussing the ‘Declension Of The Rich’. These are well-thought out incursions into territory that has been handled before by other Reactionary writers, but I rarely see it as readable as it is here. Somehow he managed to really encapsulate the problems of Modernity in the spheres of manhood and the moneyed elite without writing too much. I myself will be addressing the issue of wealth-driven techno-materialism and its disastrous consequences in an upcoming post.

  1. It's interesting to note that transition from Patriarchy to Feminism has actually lowered total family income, despite now both man and woman working. Because of women entering the workforce, wages have fallen for more than half (law of supply and demand), but now both salaries are taxable (so total family income is now much less than even half of what it would be in Patriarchy). In addition to all this decrease in family wealth, money must now be spent on what woman would do otherwise, like nannies/daycare, food preparation, etc. And this is only scratching the surface of economic analysis (one could also talk of disruptiveness of females in the workplace, and many other economic issues with feminism), and I've not even mentioned the effects that parental absence has on children, and that later, on culture at large (which also then affects the economy).

  2. Through female chastity and assurance of paternity as well as headship patriarchy maximizes male investment(coupled with monogamy) and ensues a greater accumulation of wealth(as explained in the social matter article).

    There is also the matter of the fragility of patriarchy. Do you agree that patriarchy is incredibly fragile considering that it has gradually frayed over and again in history?

    There are also a lot of good arguments against many feminist assumptions and arguments against patriarchy in the article.

  3. I don't know if I would describe Patriarchy as 'fragile'. Only to the same degree that monarchy is fragile. If a system of living is a pinnacle condition attainable on earth, it will have a sort of fragility due to the deviations outside of it pulling in the opposite direction, but the same could be said of the neo-feminist system we have now, which is of course the deepest stage of decline.

    Patriarchy is vulnerable to manipulation by feminine principles, especially at the political level where women can gain undue influence in power structures in spite of being officially shut out of them. If a man with great power can be manipulated by a woman then she has effectively asserted a negative influence, usurping what should be a masculine center of power.

    In spite of this risk, patriarchy stands as the almost unanimously accepted standard for the relation between the sexes in human society, going back to the dawn of history. Its decay is only usually a symptom of other deeper problems as a society declines. Of course, even declining patriarchal standards in the Ancient World do not rival what we have today which is almost the complete wiping out of patriarchy and its replacement with an openly and brazenly gynocratic ruin.

    I'll check out the video you linked to sometime this week hopefully.

    The association of the feminine mystique with patriarchy does not point to the feminine mystique as a result of patriarchy. But rather the feminine mystique is a sign that the patriarchy is vulnerable and being undermined from within.

    The best way to preserve patriarchy from manipulation by feminine principles. Is successfully figure out female nature and how women manipulate men(As many in the MGTOW community has done) so that men can successfully see through women no matter how they try to manipulate them. As well as rendering the social chameleon technique of women ineffective.

    Feminism therefore is a blessing to men by smashing the feminine mystique and baring female nature in all of its glory and its corruption by the fall.

    There is an entire series of articles below the video by the way.

  5. “The association of the feminine mystique with patriarchy does not point to the feminine mystique as a result of patriarchy. But rather the feminine mystique is a sign that the patriarchy is vulnerable and being undermined from within.”

    No, not a result, but merely a vulnerability and typically the cause of it being undermined. It is just to say that Patriarchy is not some invulnerable shield, as history has shown.

    Feminism has certainly provided an interesting study going forward, sort of like the first time in history that a corpse could be dissected and studied. As useful as psychological technique is (and I would suspect it is an inherent virtue that comes with true Manhood, rather than something that ideally has to be taught), it is folly to think we will ever totally nullify the dangerous aspects of mystique that women hold. These are not beasts of burden, and so we must take account of the mysterious qualities of this creation 'woman' that I don't think we will actually comprehend to a great extent in this mortal life.

    The female has an elemental force all her own. We can temper it, execute some degree of control over it, but it was never intended to be understood in full. Acknowledging this, Patriarchy is the system of social relationship that has allowed the destructive part of women's nature and also the destructive part of our own nature to be kept in check. Men need to control something, to have power, or they degenerate. Women need to be controlled, to submit to power, or they degenerate. Patriarchy ensures this symbiosis between the sexes in society.

    In true manhood, men have the ability to counteract manipulation, but it is never foolproof. All it usually takes is a fool, a man who is vulnerable either due to internal or external factors.It is a constant struggle to keep Patriarchy alive in this sense. True manhood allows men to see through women in many cases, or else Patriarchy would never have become the 99% case in human anthropological history. But we won't be able to see through them entirely. Only those of the Divine Realm can do that. Thankfully however, women will also never understand men fully either.

  6. Took a look at the video. Thanks for sharing that, it's simple but explains the concept of supply/demand problem with regards to sex. I can't really disagree with any of its key points. The birth control pill was indeed a real turning point, technology-wise. The solution to this societal problem that spiders off into other even more obvious conflicts is hard to discern. If there is any other option besides the removal of all contraceptive agents, it remains to be seen.

    Sex and childbirth have to have a very strong psychological (at the very least) link if a society's sexual economy is to remain healthy.
