THE REAL CONSERVATIVE MANIFESTO

Jason Newman: Traditional masculinity is a shield against State power

“We must redefine masculinity”. This is now the war cry from the gender feminists and those on the regressive left. Of course, this is postmodernist newspeak for, “make men act like women.” Unlike the useful idiots who awarded Bruce Jenner woman of the year, I (like many) think women do a damn good job of acting like women themselves.

Not content with redefining the nation, the family and the truth they have now moved onto another sacred cow in their sordid quest to destroy a culture and society that they quite openly and obviously despise. They have realised that by sweeping away masculinity and the characteristics most often associated with men - stoicism, self-reliance and duty - they can hasten the fall of all they hate and bring about their utopia. (I am not by the way asserting that women cannot have these traits either, but merely stating that utilising these characteristics often manifests itself differently in men and women).

Stoicism is not, as many claim, the absence of emotion, but rather the practice of dealing with any one emotion good or bad and not letting it overwhelm oneself or lead to any knee-jerk reactions. It is an intrinsically conservative trait and the enemy of those who wish us to hear a phrase like “rape culture” and react with a hysterical mea culpa. It is rationally and critically to evaluate what you are being told and stops one spending every waking hour “self-reflecting” and turning into a whining narcissist. To deal with emotion is to realise that bad things happen, that perfection and utopia are unattainable and that most importantly this is alright - a dangerous idea to those that seek absolute parity and are hell bent on egalitarianism.

To scrap self-reliance and duty as admirable traits is also quite a useful move when attempting to create the new HomoSovieticus. Self-reliance is the enemy of any self-respecting regressive leftist. When individuals are self-reliant they do not need the State and when the State is not needed it cannot justify its overreaching control and therefore must be shrunk. The regressive Left’s hostility to families where dad goes to work and mum cares for the kids is quite telling. The traditional family unit itself is quite an impressively self-sufficient body, both childcare and income are taken care of, ensuring interference and subsidies are not needed. This is precisely why the institution of the traditional family has been so insidiously attacked in recent decades; it stands in the way of state infiltration of the private sphere.

There is a wonderful exchange available online of the late Christopher Hitchens (hardly an ardent social conservative) explaining to an utterly shocked female interviewer that men are generally fairly hopeless with newborn children and so impressed are they with how mothers take to motherhood that they think, “well I’ll go off and work to earn some extra money.”

What he is explaining in this instance is a sense of duty, a man’s duty in the face of the obvious biological difference between the two sexes. This is not biological determinism but rather biological realism and a clear practical move by both parents to do what is best for the child in its early formative years - i.e. to have the parent best equipped to care for the child caring for the child.

But now in the new order of redefined masculinity, as redefined by the regressive Left, men should be just as ready to step up to the role of mother as women themselves. However the interesting question remains not what they want men to become but rather what they want men to give up. Why be so opposed to the gender division of labour?

By subverting parental roles a message has been sent that it’s wrong to expect men to feel a sense of duty, that by feeling a sense of duty they are merely “performing gender” as the cretinous theorists would put it. This has permeated the culture. Examples of bad male role models and fathers can be observed by flicking through the television any night of the week. It is now perfectly acceptable, even humorous, to be less masculine. In their rush to “destigmatise benefits”, successive governments not just in Britain but across Europe have destigmatised fathers who don’t provide for their family and those guilty of absentee fatherhood. Don’t worry if you can’t or won’t provide, the State will be there to pay out and infiltrate the private sphere yet again. It should not be surprising that when a certain model of what it means to be a man is degraded and scrapped, men stop living up to it.

There is a danger of this all sounding conspiratorial, I know, but I assure you it is not, pick up any postmodernist book and it is all there. Walk into any arts or social science lecture in any university and it is being taught to the leaders of tomorrow, as it has been for the last 40 years. These ideas have been fragmented and disseminated to the so called “educated classes” since the rise of the French postmodernists. They explicitly state the need to redefine the concrete standards of Western society in order to throw things into disarray with the ultimate goal of destroying the idea of private life and expanding the State.

All too often defending masculinity can lead to genuine expressions of chauvinism and misogyny, just look at any internet comments section. It is, however, an important thing to do when done right. Traditional masculinity and its associated traits, combined with femininity and its associated traits, create a bulwark against the State in the form of the family unit that utterly terrifies any postmodernist, gender feminist or Marxist. This is why they are so hell bent on destroying it, and this is why it is so important to defend it.

  • Uusikaupunki

    Notice how almost every TV advert that features white men (and only white men), shows them as inept, figures of fun or downright stupid. Black males on the other hand, are portrayed as athletic and/ or figures of authority. When couples are portrayed, their seems to be preponderance of white woman black male situations, and most children seem to be of mixed race. is this the actual demographics of the modern UK…or is it my fevered imagination?

    • Not only in adverts, but in all the drama series that have been running for years.

      • choccycobnobs

        I think BT have one running just now. Some white guy in tweeds wandering through a maze, cut to white girl and black male. As you surmise, it is pervasive and occurs in university marketing brochures, recruitment ads and general advertising.

        • I ignore any advert which pushes a situation which represents a small percentage of the population unless there is a very good reason for doing so (and diversity and feminism are not good reasons as far as I’m concerned.

    • CRSM

      Not just TV adverts, have you never seen the ‘happy family’ adverts from the main supermarkets and the likes of IKEA?
      I get routinely verbally abused for saying this, but what is it, if not the outward manifestation of a long-term plan to denigrate conventional Christian society?
      (Not Judeo-Christian either! Christian society owes nothing to any amoral middle-eastern cultural group).

    • I don’t know. I’ve seen plenty of adverts where white men are not portrayed as being inept or stupid. And as a black woman, I’m fed up of the athletic stereotype. That being said, the UK does have one of the highest mixed-race populations in Europe.

      • itdarestospeak

        Whilst I agree with you that not all TV shows and advertisements show white men in a negative light, Uusikaupunki’s point was, I believe, that when someone IS portrayed in a negative way in the media that person is invariably a white man.
        If you don’t agree with this premise I can only assume that you watch very little television.

    • Enemy Coast Ahead

      Its not that I care whether the actors in these commercials are black, white, gay or whatever – I really don’t – I just dislike the patronizing position some of these adverts take as if the viewers are all simpletons out there that don’t know what is going on here when it is so blatantly obvious – many people I speak to also express how annoying these pretentious and preachy TV commercials are that appear to constantly shove multiculturalism and diversity down our throats. So determined to prove how diverse and unbiased they are these commercials actually deter viewers from buying their company products let alone watch their pretentious commercials.

  • Lagopus scotica

    First, the feminists wanted women to be more like men, now they want men to be more like women. It’s time to allow women to be women, and men to be men, and tell these marxists/socialists/feminazis to get knotted.

  • Bonedagger

    An astute piece – and there should be no concerns about sounding “conspiratorial.” After all, it’s not like the intent of the original fathers of Socialism didn’t put all of this stuff on paper. Feminism is the primary means by which Socialism is enforced; Socialism being a supremacist doctrine allowing the state to grow via theft and violence. Ergo, it must negate the natural threat from the only demographic which can provide literal resistance to its tyranny: the indegenous men. It’s been a slow process, assaulting on all fronts, but it’s now complete. Once you’ve got the core Feminist tenets embedded into primary school education, you have the next generations indoctrinated.

    • paul parmenter

      Conspiracies may well exist, but they are not necessary. All you need is a consensus. It works just as well, and may be much harder to expose and break down.

      • Lagopus scotica

        You are correct about consensus, but we seem to have had a conspiracy to form the left-wing consensus.

        • Bonedagger

          Indeed. Not every individual or group is “in” on the grander aims of a conspiracy; nor would they need to be. A small number of chief conspirators can curry support from the “lesser” likeminded and so on. Most of your everyday Feminists, Socialists and whatnot are just sockpuppets who have something personal to gain from their affiliation to a cause. I suppose you could call it a Pyramid Scheme. Regardless of how it works, it worked.

  • PerplexedSardine

    One of the most remarkable and powerful stories of the decline of explicity masculine duty and self-sacrifice I have ever read was in one of Mark Steyn’s books (After America, I believe it was). He supplied some statistics on the survival rates of Western shipwrecks over the last century. Specifically, he gave the breakdown by gender. The further you go back, the more you find most survivors tended to be women and children. Today however, most survivors tend to be men, and young men at that.

    75% of the women on board the Titanic survived. 19% of the men did.

    • Uusikaupunki

      in all the (engineered) “shipwrecks” that are occurring in the Med on a daily basis, all the fit young men survive, they leave just one woman and child to be rescued for photo propaganda purposes, so effete Western governments can make emotional knee-jerk decisions.

      • paul parmenter

        Perhaps it is the fit young men who survive because they make up the bulk of the passengers in the first place. That is exactly how I would plan it. They would be the vanguard who are best suited to overcome the hazards of the journey and establish themselves in Europe, making a base so that in due course, their women and children can be brought across in safety and hopefully with a ready-made home and benefits to go to.

        • Uusikaupunki

          Indeed, they are known as “grappling-hooks”. But the point I was trying to make is that their idea of civilised behaviour is “women and children and Christians are thrown overboard to lighten ship….”

          OT the tradition of “women and children first” is a fairly recent tradition, stemming from the wreck of HMS Birkenhead in 1852.

          • paul parmenter

            Re the Birkenhead: yes. But I think the reason that tradition began then was because in previous times, not many women and children travelled by ship. The Birkenhead happened to be one of the first that went down with a large number of women and children on board, so it represented an early opportunity for male mariners to exhibit the behaviour.

            I have no doubt that the basic concept of males sacrificing themselves to save women and children existed long, long before that. In fact the modern era may be the first time in history that a significant proportion of men have decided that the concept – at least as regards prioritising women – is redundant, and will look after themselves first.

    • Sargv

      That’s gender equality. Feminists should celebrate that.

  • WFC

    An excellent article but – “To scrap self-reliance and duty as admirable traits is also quite a useful move when attempting to create the new HomoSovieticus.” – is not quite right.

    The usefulness of emotionally incontinent snowflakes is to destabilise the existing society. If and when our existing society becomes so thoroughly destabilised that it is taken over by a species of Bolshevism – although they won’t call themselves that – the usefulness of the snowflakes will be at an end.

    More than that, far from being heralded as HomoSovieticus, they are far more likely to be seen as a positive threat to the new order and will likely be liquidated in short order.

  • Colkitto03

    Good article. To start on this roles and responsibilities swap you must completely devalue motherhood. There was a lot of ground work that needed doing by feminist before this attack on masculinity could be started.

  • wisestreligion

    100 years ago we knew how much we depended on young working-class males making sacrifices to defend their country. Contrast that with today. The favourite hate targets of the liberal media are the working-class males who are upset by Islamisation in their neighbourhoods, where frequently they have witnessed abuse of womenfolk by foreign immigrants. Meanwhile the foreigner in our midst is set up on a pedestal.

  • paul parmenter

    I believe this is a fundamentally important point that sits at the centre of so much of the changes that are damaging societies across many countries. It has been picked up and expressed in many forms on this site and in the comments. But it needs to be reiterated, again and again.

    If you are hell bent on increasing the power of the state, at any level from international to local, the very last thing you want is to have a society full of strong, confident, self-sufficient, well-educated, independently thinking and independently acting men. They are your enemies, because not only do they not need the state, but they are the only ones who are capable of mounting an effective challenge to its power and excesses, and they are the only ones who have ever, throughout history, successfully overthrown previous versions of it.

    This is exactly why we see the current vigorous and determined assault by the state on the education and well-being of boys and on the standing of men in families and the workplace, and why anything that undermines men’s independence, confidence and influence in society and depicts them as weak, failing and incompetent, is supported and encouraged. It is a continuous campaign that dare not fail, and the state will pour resources into it to ensure that it doesn’t.

  • Excellent article. The thing is that we women DON’T want men who behave like women. I certainly want a man to behave like a man– and by that I DON’T mean be misogynist/violent. What I mean is: responsibility, self-sacrifice, stoicism, and being a good provider.

    Men have been disincentivized against producing, because their predominance in certain work fields has been false smeared as “patriarchal”, when in fact it is laughably obvious why some work suits men better than women. I refer of course, to fields like engineering. We rely upon men in these fields to work the long, unsocial hours in dangerous conditions so that we can have our bridges, roads, cars, street-lamps, houses, airplanes, ships, plumbing, electricity and so on. Good, productive, traditionally masculine men are responsible for this. (Needless to say, those men now bowing down to the false orthodoxy of “gender neutrality” are producing nothing but laughable soundbites on CNN and the Huffington Post).

    Because men are willing to do longer, harder, more unsocial hours, they will get paid more, no matter how much modern feminists scream about this. Of course, those modern feminists would never want to work down a mine shaft, or wake up at three in the morning to fix electricity lines. The hypocrisy. I despair at the degeneration of manhood; I like watching a lot of documentaries and films set during World War Two, and I marvel at the calibre of men there, who understood the meaning of duty, sacrifice and grit to fight the worst evil. Are today’s neutered men up for the challenge? You bet not. Are the “kick-ass” feminist women going to do this? Of course not.

    This is not happening in all cultures around the world, though, which I think is positive.

    For any traditional, decent men out there: keep up the good work.

    • paul parmenter

      I have upvoted you for your strong sentiments, but with all respect there needs to be something much more than just an exhortation to “keep up the good work” or “what I want from a man”. That all worked very well in the days when women also kept their side of the bargain. But there have been huge changes since then.

      As a man, I will accept responsibility for my actions and my promised duties, but not if you refuse to accept any responsibility for yours, or make no reciprocal promises, or make them but break them on a whim. I will self-sacrifice for your benefit, but not if you refuse to make any sacrifice for mine. I will remain stoic, but not in the face of abuse, laziness, insults or indifference. I will provide, but not for someone who expects it as of right without giving anything in return, or who throws it back in my face because they think it is not good enough, or who takes it for granted and demands more with no thought to the efforts needed to satisfy such demands.

      If faced with women who behave like that, I will walk away. Because if I stay, I might very well succumb to misogyny. Never violence, because that is not my thing. But I understand how for some men, the temptation can be too great.

      • Of course respect has to be earned, and there should be reciprocal effort on both sides. I shouldn’t really need to point that out, as it’s obvious.

        • paul parmenter

          Not to some people!

        No thanks.

        Those days are gone for ever.

        Never again will women acquiesce to patriarchy and domestic servitude.

        • And yet data continues to show that many women who have careers want more flexible hours so that they can… be with their family! How about putting the soundbites into a drawer and actually reading statistical data? Women still value family and home life, and tend to prefer work that fits around that agenda. Go and read the data/surveys and studies. Even those screaming about the pay gap always acknowledge that women tend to prefer flexible working hours. Women also favour maternity pay, which means that a woman can… stay at home!

  • the future is female

    Macho males are outdated. They aren’t needed any more. Masculinity will have to adapt to survive in the modern world.

    That’s why girls are crushing boys at all levels of education.

    • Another comment full of ludicrous presumptions, as is usually the case from yourself. Boys in many other parts of the world who are not familiar with Western popular portrayals of machismo, are doing excellently in education- particularly those from India, China, Nigeria and so on. What is your explanation for this? The fact that girls are outperforming boys in education here in Britain has nothing to do with machismo, and has everything to do with boys being left behind, and different ways of teaching that suit girls better than boys. There is persuasive evidence that boys do better in single-sex education than in co-ed. Furthermore, there are socio-economic factors at play; it used to be that black boys were doing worst in schooling, but they have massively improved. Today, the white working-class boy is most disadvantaged educationally, and this is due not to machismo, but the effect of destructive economic policies as well as the erosion of traditional education in British society. Your assumption that masculinity means machismo by default shows a comprehensive lack of understanding; you ignore the values outlined in this article of stoicism, self-sacrifice, and producing, which has benefited you. What’s funny is we never see haters of masculinity doing ANY work that is traditionally done by men, or volunteering for the long, hard unosical hours in dangerous conditions that give us our roads, bridges, buildings and so on.

      • the future is female

        Traditional masculinity as defined by “stoicism” and “self-sacrifice” is responsible for increased rates of suicide among young males who feel unable to talk about their feelings for fear of being thought “unmanly”.

        Thank you for reminding us of another reason why masculinity needs to be re-invented. It’s for males’ own good.

          • the future is female

            Are you saying women are less capable of self-sacrifice than men?

            Be very careful about how you answer.

          • Don’t lecture me on how to answer, particularly given that you have virtually ignored the vast majority of my points. Yes, women do self-sacrifice, but it is never imposed as a feature of feminine identity in the same way as it is for men. Maybe with regards to child-rearing then we certainly see the best in women. But so much of masculine identity relies upon self-sacrifice, which is why, as I have said (and which you have studiously ignored), men tend to excel in jobs like police work, firefighting and other dangerous jobs.

            Not so. Women served in the women’s branches of the forces, in non-combatant roles, for about eighty years from the First World War. Some died while doing so (one of my aunts was a WAAF at West Malling when it was bombed by the Luftwaffe and was in some danger although she was not injured) but most were at no more risk of death or injury than any civilian. The integration of the women’s services into the main arms was a relatively recent thing and thus far none have been killed or seriously wounded as a consequence, and as yet none have been tested in action. Few can doubt that when they are any failures will be hushed up if blame cannot be attributed to men.

            You are denigrating their courage and sacrifice.

            Very few sacrificed anything except the right to choose what colour underwear they wore and how long their hair was. My mother served in the WAAF in Singapore, during the Communist insurgency in Malaya, and received a campaign medal for doing so but she was never in any danger.

            Stop reading Girl’s Own, it’s rotted your brain.

            TFIF aka liberal Elite has daddy issues. It came out in one of her posts in Guido.

          • the future is female

            That’s a lie.

          • Andy

            True. Daddy issues screams from your posts.

          According to the Samaritans the rising rates of male suicide are in the age 40 plus group, and connected to family break down, loss of wife as main emotional support and lack of work opportunity

      Cue entitled women dictating to men how to be masculine. . . girls are achieving . . . .that’s a good thing . . .

      Let’s set the record straight. The future is not female and it never will be. Men constitute the ‘force’ of any given society. Any given society’s ability to project force in defense of it’s structures, values, and institutions is inextricably linked to the ability of it’s men. You do not have rights. You have priviledges. Those priviledges can and will be taken away if one of two things happens. 1) The men of your society are defeated. 2) Not enough men of your society are willing and able to defend your priviledges. Since you,as a woman, lack the ability to project force, your priviledges will be taken away by the conquering culture. If either of the two things stated above comes to pass, you revert to being booty, spoils of war, or the ‘prize of Achilles’. It has always been this way and it will always be this way. It is not a thing of the distant past. Just ask the women of the Congo or Rawanda what happened when their men lost. If you need a European example, ask an elderly female resident of Berlin what happened when the Russians came in 1945.

        True. But state machine might use 5% of men in forces to keep the rest 95% at bay in a gynocentric society. Like we have – what? 2% of population? working in food production, providing the food for all of us.

        Without male participation, any society will eventually fall – true. But in universal suffrage democracies governments are short-termist, and do not care much about the distant future. Pander to women voters (often at the expense of men) is a sure way to win: they’re herdish by nature when there’s no strong man around. Men are not herdish. On the contrary, we suck at unionising on the basis of sex. Most of us are “second sons” in any hierarchy, and our favourite past time always was a fratricide, since day one.

    Why sexism hurts guys too.

      Do you change your Avatar after you get a load of derision from the various sites you visit? Feminist Delusions, Liberal Elite and now TFIF. I presume you are now wearing boxing gloves to try and stop yourself typing in bold, it isn’t working.

    • Andy

      Rubbish video, nice jugs though.

      • the future is female

        Stop objectifying women.

        • Andy

          No I quite like it. Only ugly dames find it a problem.

          • the future is female

            So now you’re adding body-shaming to your long list of sins.

          • Andy

            Ugly is as ugly is.

          • the future is female

            Body-shaming is always wrong.

          • Andy

            I don’t ‘sound’ like anything you silly bint, you are reading my views. The only voices in your head and your own.

      The only thing ‘amazing’ about the idiot calling herself Laci Green is that anyone watches her risible videos. That you do is not surprising.

    A very good article here, clearly written and expressing useful truths. Well done and thank you,
    Society needs to rediscover and honour the roles of both motherhood and fatherhood. Devoted motherhood and responsible masculinity in fatherhood are both are equally essential for building strong families, from which strong nations are formed.
    The deluded and evil leftists are immoral power, control freaks, lacking in any conception of their final destination. They know what the hate but have no idea as to what it is that they want and love.

    Emotion and hedonism originate in the reptile brain, the parts that’s common to all forms of animal life. People who find self control repressive have a problem with civilisation, which represses basic animal instincts. There’s the story bandered around, well we’ve been doing this for millions of years all animals do it, it`s a basic instinct, we can’t expect people to do anything more than give into their base instincts. If we look at how men behave etc. Ah yes if we give the poor lots of money maybe theyll be diverted from their natural sense of jealousy of others capital/food in a basic sense etc; which is pandering to symptoms rather than changing behaviour.
    Stoicism, comes from civilised behaviour, conscious (or unconscious control) of base instincts. People don’t use the pavements as a convenience, we can all choose to control our bodily functions when we want to. I think feminists who are calling for a redefinition of masculinity to solve a violence problem or a sexual abuse problem have lost the plot, because the issue is about lack of civilised, including stoic and empathetic behaviour.

    • Yep, and here is where we see the the divide between Islam and the west. Islam positively proclaims that men (boys, really to my mind) can’t control themselves around women, while the west has progressed to where we can actually be partners.

    The future is female. Can’t you see it?

    That’s why we need to censor screenings of the Red Pill.

    Not because we are afraid of the truth. No. Definitely not.

    Re: the point about Bruce / “Caitlyn” Jenner, I saw a story today which actually described “Caitlyn” as the “woman who is Kendal Jenner’s father.”

    I can’t…. even….

    “The knight is a man of blood and iron, a man familiar with the sight of smashed faces and the ragged stumps of lopped-off limbs; he is also a demure, almost maidenlike, guest in a hall, a gentle, modest, unobtrusive man. He is not compromise or happy mean between ferocity and meekness; he is fierce to the nth and meek to the nth. The man who combines both characters – the knight – is not a work of nature but of art; of that art which has human beings, instead of canvas or marble, for its medium.”

    Prof. C.S. Lewis

      Knights were a feature of Christendom, some groups were monks and featured self control (including voluntary oaths of chastity).

    We need state default, badly. That, or major war. As fast as possible. In the latter case we can draft all the feminists and send them to the front lines to prove their worth. Win-win.
