Barbarians at the Gates – The Fall of America
The Western World loves the Star Wars and The Hunger Games franchises, their plots and protagonists. We cheer for the rebels, we cheer for the barbarians but we fail to recognize that in reality, we are the evil empire, not the rebellion. Why is it so hard for us to see our own evil and our own darkness? It’s because tribally, our killers are good, moral, and justified.
In the real life of tribal competition, the losers are brutally eliminated from the gene pool. We have become so weak that we cannot even see the barbaric invasion and war of ideology that are happening right in front of our faces. We are blinded by false empathy and compassion when history has proven that ignorant people will kill their liberator without hesitation. Bringing truth to the masses is an extremely dangerous business, but it is part of being a leader, and crucial to guarantee the survival of the tribe.
“A strong man knows he must face ugly truths to win. It’s part of the job of being a man, carry out the mission, do your job, whatever is required. But the people who live for comfort will resist the discomfort of reality.”
Hard times create strong men, and weak men create hard times. It is the inevitable cycle of life where great empires are built and destroyed. Unfortunately, millennials are currently living in the era of weak men that drown in ephemeral pleasure and limited desires. However, strength and greatness are determined by one’s self, and so this is the best time to seize everything you have ever wanted!
