I would bet on Roosh against the Red Pill sub-reddit as well. And frankly, I never thought much of the Matrix terminology anyhow. Neomasculinity is a much more sensible term anyhow, and as far as the distinction between it and the Red Pill Manosphere goes, I think an increased emphasis on tradition, patriarchy, and the nuclear family that is anti-socialist with more room for spirituality sounds considerably more like a philosophy I can support.Ever since I discovered the manosphere, I've believed they made excellent diagnoses of the sickness crippling Western civilization. It was their prescriptions I often found lacking. The materialist pursuit of higher notch counts isn't an option for serious Christians as extramarital sex is sinful. It's gratifying to see a desire to delve more deeply into the permanent things that built civilization in the first place. Roosh caught my ear with his resolution that going forward the community will be more welcoming to spirituality and belief in a higher being. It is my hope that he and everyone else will formally convert to the Catholic faith one day. I strongly believe that a commitment to pursue the truth no matter the cost will inevitably lead to he who is Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. The best that has been done by those who came before us was done for his glory.
I believe we want the same thing. All of us, whether our names are famous, infamous, or obscure like mine, write because we want to encourage and mentor other men. I'm a little bemused by the name Roosh has chosen, neomasculinity. If you follow the link, you'll see that much of it involves rediscovering lost traditions and embracing the old ways that our progressive overlords have spent their lives attempting to suppress. Lest we Catholics feel tempted to dismiss them as Johnny Come-Latelys, we should remember that the public face of the Church in the 21st century is in a pretty sorry state because our bishops have by and large exchanged the faith of the Apostles for liberalism. By their fruits, ye shall know them.
It sounds like a trite cliche, but cliches are considered such because they contain kernels of truth that move us: every saint has a past, every sinner has a future. I won't live long enough to see a better future than the one current trends suggest but remember that the war is already decided. It's our duty to cultivate fortitude through the coming collapse.
