How did the last strong men phase work out for your people? Doubt that were good times.

Wisdom is a form of strength you thick inbred piece of trash. Raw intelligence doesn't mean shit if all it produces is a conveyor belt of sociopathic nihilists bent on undermining civilisation.

Intelligent but weak and cowardly men are often less than worthless--they seek out ease and comfort and tend to live like leeches off the labour of other people, you know, like the bulk of academia, or the financial service industry. Their lack of courage combined with intelligence means they have a tendency to live off of the exploitation of others, and not only that, but their abuses tend to lead to tyranny, because everyone gets fed up with their bullshit.

And yes, civilisation has generally followed the aforementioned cyclical cycle, and you'd probably know that if you'd actually read any history, ever. You can even seen it in the respective behaviours of the war generation, raised in times of trial and toil, and the boomers who grew up in comfort and ease, earned by the sweat and sacrifice of their parents, and chucked away in two generations.

The self-sacrificing spirit of those of the war generation is dead, and now our young dismiss them with disdain as "racist old people" or some other ignorant and bigoted modern trope (something you engage in constantly). It is selfish, disgusting and despicable how little reverence you have for the past, and for the sacrifices made that allow you all your self-indulgent luxuries--you are an ungrateful wretch of a man.

fyi: such an attitude is the polar opposite of anything conservative, so don't ever give that "I have conservative opinions" line again. There is nothing conservative about you; you are the Nietzschean "last man" and prototypically modern (faith inn"progress" is your religion).

Are you implying that Nazism was a product of strong men? That is retarded and ahistorical. Caesarism is an unremitting consequence of general weakness among the citizenry, and the lack of bold and independent and courageous stock of citizens--in a word, decadence. Indeed, it is an unavoidable consequence of pervasive weakness, and the empowerment of "mass man" as Ortega put it (before the rise of Nazism btw).

lol @ equating the hyper-neurotic nazis with strength.

You know a strongman is a political leader, who rules without the consent of a parliament.

I'm not questioning that weak men lead to strong men here..

That's not what he was saying then. Strong MEN, not strongman--the sacrifices of the former produce times of plenty and luxury, which then are thrown away by those who live off the achievements of their ancestors with no appreciation of what it took to get them where they are, and no desire to undertake the necessary hardship to preserve it and pass it on to posterity unimpaired. It's the typical ingratitude of a pampered child.

Historically it amounts to a platitude really.

By strong men op would be referring to something like the tough-as-nails Roman farmer, as epitomised in a figure like Cincinnatus, or the American planter or frontiersman, the European explorer, the Greek warrior, etc.

By weak men he would be talking about cretins like yourself who understand nothing of their origins and inherited patrimony, think everything is their's by "right", and give not a thought to their obligations and civic responsibilities (only to themselves and their pleasures and ease of living). The fact we only ever hear about "rights" and very little about the flip side of rights, which is their respective duties, shows that we live in an era of weak men, and your faith in "progress" won't save you from the consequences of that.

Nick Youngs not talking about roman farmers or greek warriors...he's talking about 'strong' conservatives vs 'weak' liberals.


THE CYCLE GOES LIKE THIS:

Republican Pres fcks shit up...Dem Pres rebuilds....Republican Pres fcks shit up...Dem Pres rebuilds...etc





^^^ there's the cycle...

Trump will dig us into a hole...and the next Dem Pres will have to dig us out

No he isn't: he's talking about the cycle of civilisations, the ebb and flow. It's all over the internet to the point of being a meme now:



https://www.google.com/search?q=cycl...and +weak+men

Here's a more detailed (and accurate) one:




But, of course, with you everything boils down to "muhh Republicaans and Deemocrats"

The word liberal has actually undergone a transformation from representing strength to representing weakness in and of itself. Liberalism in the 19th century was effectively a form of rugged individualism, now it is a collectivist matriarchal dogma.
