Has anyone else seen Vox’s recent crusade about MGTOW?
There are are a few related streams on youtube:
There are a couple of related links on his blog.
I read his blog often. I value the content in general. The comments are a mixed bag, only some of which I can relate to. I haven’t commented there in years.
Anyway, the point of the post. Finally. I’m somewhat conflicted by this turn of events because:
1) I like what I think is Vox’s overall goal; a decent society along Christian lines. (I’m not a believer but I’m not a hater either. The fundamental values of my society 50-100 years ago are fine by me and they’re rooted in Christianity). If he thinks this is part of getting to that goal then I’m reluctant to hinder him even at the cost of shaking my head at this tactical move.
2) he sounds so much like a blowhard tard conservative (I do NOT mean traditional) pushing the same old just climb out of the trench and start walking towards the machine gun nests, some of you might make it to glory that I had a double take. I’d have thought he’d of had a more inspirational strategy. Shame won’t work on actual MGTOWs. Will it work on the upcoming young men?
‘Factory’, a very old name in MGTOW and men’s rights popped up in Vox’s comments, fighting the good fight.
3) does he consider an attempt to fix the legal system non-viable right now? I reckon you’d get a lot of MGTOWs returning to marriage if the legal side wasn’t such a shitshow. I refer people to the Divorce Corp. video for an explanation of the problem.
4) Vox’s ‘all MGTOWs lie about everything’ is clearly rhetorical, I understand that, but it’s still a huge turn-off to me. Either he’s not aiming this argument at me (fair enough, he has more numerous rhetorical fish to fry. It could well be good tactics). Or, he has no dialectical argument to make, so he can’t argue on any reasoned basis why men en masse ought to take the marriage gamble. I agree with him that the risks are dependant on the individual but he appears to be saying that all men have a duty to marry whomever they can nab.
I’m not American, nor a believer, so I’m reticent about expressing a hard opinion on this about how it’ll play out in a foreign to me market.
Anyone else got a view?
I’m sure that there are good men here who felt they’d done their due-diligence but still ended up divorced.
He appears to be ignoring the nature of some modern women. As one commentator on his blog pointed out; Vox has been outside of the US for twenty years now. That’s a lot of time. And I doubt that the Americans that he meets are representative of the full spectrum of American society.
