When I first started writing for Return of Kings less than a year ago, I thought that we were in for a long, hard battle against the corrosive forces of modern society: feminism, socialism, multiculturalism, and the social justice warriors that make it all possible. The indoctrination is so entrenched in every level of society that I believed it would take a lifetime to knock it out.
I still think the battle is going to be a difficult one, but some amazing things have been happening on Twitter recently that make me feel that the battle will not be as long as I had initially thought. The latest example of this phenomenon is the #BringBackThePatriarchy hashtag.
The hashtag started trending on Twitter on October 25th. The earliest tweets emphasize how important fatherhood is to children:
Other tweets point out what happens when fathers become weak or when they are absent:
Feminism’s Effect On Women
Western girls are indoctrinated with the belief that feminism is a good thing because it provides women with choices that they lacked under the traditional patriarchal system. Thanks to feminism, we are told, women now have the choice of whether or not to be virtuous, whether or not to become mothers, and whether they become worker drones or stay-at-home moms. How could anyone oppose feminism? It seems so reasonable.
However, the people who were tweeting under #BringBackThePatriarchy pointed out the dichotomy between what feminism promises on paper and how it actually affects the lives of women.
For example, there have been some changes in dating:
Feminism has also had a tendency to make women less attractive and less feminine. Ironically, I think the best example of this was a tweet that was posted to criticize the supporters of patriarchy. I think you will agree that it inadvertently provides yet another argument in favor of patriarchy:
This tweet nicely captures what feminism means to women in one picture:
When women are diverted away from their natural instinct to nurture children, they end up nurturing animals in their place.
Many of the tweets highlight the differences between the ugliness of most ardent feminists with the beauty and femininity that is associated with more traditional girls.
Other tweets brought out the deleterious effects of feminism and progressivism on men and issue a call to return to true masculinity.
Reaction Against Migrants
Along with the criticism of feminism, the #BringBackThePatriarchy tweeters also came out against the plans of Western leaders to replace their white populations with third world immigrants.
While #BringBackThePatriarchy was just a Twitter phenomenon, it is still important because it indicates we are in Stages 2 and 3 in the process of bringing back patriarchy. Campaigns like this reach out to men and women who might privately question feminism, multiculturalism, and the progressive narrative, but who are afraid to step out publicly for fear of being called misogynists or racists. It lets them know that there are other people out there who share the same views.
It can also lead them to discover the existing networks like Return of Kings and RVF, and begin implementing the principles of neomasculinity, thus further weakening the current system.
The existence of the campaign means that men and women are beginning to wake up. They are beginning to see that the progressive narrative that we have been fed for the past 50 years ultimately leads to unhappiness. Our progressive elite leaders believe that this is a fad that will eventually burn itself out. I believe they are wrong. Once a person sees the tissue of lies that undergirds the progressive narrative, it is not possible to go back to believing them.
There has been a small crack in the edifice of the prevailing narrative, but it is only a crack. It doesn’t mean that we have won or that we can relax. On the contrary, we have to take advantage of the opportunity by recommitting ourselves to living the principles we hold dear. We have a lot of hard work ahead, but it is gratifying to see that glimmers of light are appearing so soon.
