"Turn men back into men again" That won't happen with simple prayer. If there are no men to teach men how to be men then more and more supposed "men" will turn to pornography as a means defining themselves and perpetuating that this is what makes a man masculine. A man's "masculinity" lies in porn.

I posted the second vid, because it offers a different perspective. I don't mean to offend anyones atheism. Smile I am an atheist myself.

The eastern wisdom clearly connects male sexuality with the vital energy of the organism. Known as "Qi", or "prana" for example. So with every orgasm a male loses his semen and thereby part of his life energy. His masculinity!

From my perspective one problem with porn is, that it encourages excessive masturbation. I don't want to be moralist or come across as religious here. But porn is distinctly anti-masculine. It takes away mens masculine energy.

But the acts and images within porn of course constitute another problem, that causes the addiction. On the channel of the above TED videolecture, there are more scientific educational vids on this topic.

I find this to be the key mens topic. Also because the MRA tend to blame women. Men too contribute to the war between the sexes, with the objectification of women. The channel "Manwomanmyth" on youtube talks about this too ("misogyny").

Porn is leftist, egalitarian, nihilist, misogynistic, misandric and feminizing. It displays hyper-masculinity. Never true masculinity.

Real teachers are available. There are just way more posers and gurus. It's like with the "Ring of Power" from the Lord of the Rings. Only Frodo could carry it, because he was the most noble, the most humble. The true heroe. Even a great and good sorcerer like Gandalf would have been tempted or someone of royal descent like Aragorn. They could help him on his journey to destroy the Ring of Power. They rationally rejected monopolized power, but only Frodo could carry this weight of responsibility. And even the other hobbits from the Fellowship had their flaws.

This is the list of Pornographic sub-genres from wikipedia:

Porno Sub Genres

This is what has been growing (the perversions). New fetishes every day. Because the old stimulations do not "work" anymore, for the dopamine addicted brains of the users. And it has nothing to do with sexuality! Porn is not sex! It's a drug for dopamine junkies.

Your brain on porn:


Erectile dysfuntion related to porn use:


And just look at the categories! A normal person would puke, but this is what porn is today.

They say people have to go "cold turkey" on their abstinence from porn, so that after up to 4 months(!) the brain can rewire to its normal function. It is compared to obesity and sugar addiction of modernity and I also agree with that, having only started on a paleo diet not long ago. I sometimes get a sugar craving. Very dark chocolate and honey are then recommended. I don't know if I am an addict, but I want my morning wood back! And the connection to erectile dysfuntion seems to be scientifically established, though few scientists want to examine this subject. I believe it is a massive issue in modernity!

Even in my old buddhist (western tibetan) sangha the people were heavy porn users.

The reason there is a porn addiction is because Most men lack a regular sexual outlet. Today,Women have more sex & more sexual partners than most men. They did a survey in New Zealand recently and found women on average had TWICE as many lifetime sexual partners than men. but how is this possible ? What happens when female sexual desire is liberated is not an increase in the total amount of sex available to men, but a redistribution of the existing supply.a fraction of the male population getting all the play/action.
This unhealthy obsession over women & sex is distracting Men from real issues. In the early days, man was guaranteed a mate through paternalism & the institution of monogamy, and this set a whole chain of events. now that a man had a sexual partner & means to procreate, he could focus his time & energy on more productive avenues, like science,art,politics..etc.. If not for strict moral codes ,the institution of marriage & repression of female sexuality, the civilization we live in would have never been possible.

Both men & women are naturally promiscuous. These MRA's shame women for their natural behavior. Some of them encourage their followers to become a "player" , some of them advocate avoiding relationships with women altogether. some of them even advocate celibacy.

Their whole argument boils down to , Men = Good, Women = Bad. This uniformity in Gender is bullshit. Most men are Scum.not all men are created equal. Besides, what woman in the right mind would want to sleep with these losers anyway? most of them are sexually frustrated beta males. They whine about men being disposable & that the state is bias towards women ,but don't want to explore as to why it is happening & why females are preferred in the System..But i'll give them credit for seeing the differences in Sexes, they've come to the realization that gender equality is a Myth.. but you don't hear anyone of them ever talk about Race..they shy away from making distinctions based on Race. "racial equality" is the biggest bullshit of all.

There is NO war of the sexes/genders. what we have is competing factions vying for control over Females & Who gets to influence the womenfolk . Women have always been Docile, Infantile, hovering around mediocrity. Women reflect the light of men. If that light dies, why would you expect them to be anything but dark? Why yell at the mirror in the dark?

The Real war is between men like ourselves who want to preserve our cultural inheritance ,traditions & the ways of their forefathers VS those who want to create uniformity by eradicating all differences ..Cultures,Races,Gender are all being made irrelevant for the sake of social harmony..Strip away man from his race/cultural inheritance, you take away his identity.Its no surprise that most youth find their identity in Pop-Culture.

The movie "fight club" illustrates this brilliantly. The most common interpretation of the film is the alienation of human beings as a result of the post-modern condition. the film also touches another problem of modern society, Nihilism. Remember in the end jack revolts against the Project Mayhem which just like consumer capitalism fails to provide him with any form of autonomy and authenticity. He finds himself in a sea of Nihilism, essentially valueless

The only way to change the current situation ,this Nihilism ,this leveling down , is to do away with globalism & finance capitalism altogether. For that to happen the State should collapse. We have to bring down the alpha male(the State), if we can do that ,most of our problems would be solved. Feminism/Affirmative action/Consumer capitalism would collapse overnight...We should fight to preserve what our forefathers fought & died for ,we'd be less human if we couldn't do that.

We are the "Men among the Ruins"

"I do not want my house to be walled in on all sides and my windows to be stuffed. I want the cultures of all the lands to be blown about my house as freely as possible. But I refuse to be blown off my feet by any. I refuse to live in other people’s houses as an interloper, a beggar or a slave. " - Mahatma Gandhi

I don't know. The game is long, without a foreseeable end.

The simulacrum could be destroying other races though a program of interbreeding, capitalizing on it. It's done it before. It all comes down to awareness and intelligence, profiting from the ubermensch whilst destroying him. But as always it's the white working class that will do the dirty work and take the hit.

Maybe it is the other way round!? What was there first: the hen or the egg? Does a lack of sex opportunities cause men getting addicted to porn or the other way round: does porn addiction cause men to get erectile dysfunction and be insecure towards real women!?

The numbers may be correct. You've studied your PUA dogmas. Isn't there some hidden jealousy towards women? And some objectification of women in this? As if the number of sexual partners has anything to do with a satisfactory love(and sex)life! On the contrary: I believe that monogamous relationships at least have the potential to be the most blissful. This is my non-PUA perspective.

That feeling of utter satisfaction achieved from masturbation fits well with the idea of death of identity in uniformity. The pleasure causes a cease in discrimination and consciousness. Masturbating 1 to 2 times a day can keep you nice and docile. I'm guessing the elaborate fetishes are a result of boredom, of an unwilling consciousness - a result of the person trying to find a way to completely lose themselves by exaggerating and associating some of their darkest fears with the very desire responsible for their continued existence, sexual desire.

More simply put, after one's assured their seed has been spread, they feel comfortable with their existence. Especially when that girl they're seeing on the screen is of a superb physical beauty.

Advertising may be partly responsible for this - hot women plastered everywhere around the USA. That, and a lack of will power and direction for males today. I suspect males are not going to cease their porn addiction if they have no other need for their sexual energies. They do not care about improving themselves, so they will not concentrate it without perceiving a need to expend it elsewhere.

Masturbation seems like a behavior of boredom. The boredom is a result, usually, from disinterest.. which can be caused by many things, but what comes to mind immediately is stupidity, like a redneck hick sitting in science class, not understanding a word being said and announces how boring it is, then proceeds to do the more interesting pursuit of chasing after Mary-Anne's attention.

The red neck is smart. He may be so poor that he doesn't even have a high-speed internet connection, therefor his brain functions better in the real life mating game, because he's no internet porn addict and only jerks off to old playboy magazines, which are harmless in comparison.

I didn't want to be rude! Welcome to the forum, from my side! But Tyler Durden and Gandhi don't go together well. Are opposites even. And Evola and Tyler Durden don't go together well either, they too are opposites. Please explain your position. Are you a leftist radical anarcho like Tyler Durden? Or a right wing priest like Evola? I just hate all this modernized mixing of ideas, like the Aurini and other youtube gurus do. It looks superficial to me.

I thought that the entire idea of "Alpha" and "Beta" is a myth.

As noted wolf behavior expert L. David Mech, one of those who helped to establish and popularize the notion of the alpha wolf in the first place, explains on his website:

The concept of the alpha wolf is well ingrained in the popular wolf literature at least partly because of my book “The Wolf: Ecology and Behavior of an Endangered Species,” written in 1968, published in 1970, republished in paperback in 1981, and currently still in print, despite my numerous pleas to the publisher to stop publishing it. Although most of the book’s info is still accurate, much is outdated. We have learned more about wolves in the last 40 years then in all of previous history.

One of the outdated pieces of information is the concept of the alpha wolf. “Alpha” implies competing with others and becoming top dog by winning a contest or battle. However, most wolves who lead packs achieved their position simply by mating and producing pups, which then became their pack. In other words they are merely breeders, or parents, and that’s all we call them today, the “breeding male,” “breeding female,” or “male parent,” “female parent,” or the “adult male” or “adult female.” In the rare packs that include more than one breeding animal, the “dominant breeder” can be called that, and any breeding daughter can be called a “subordinate breeder.”


To be honest, from a female perspective, although what I am saying probably won't be respected or viewed as a worthy opinion, I will say that I don't find these pseudo-Alpha males attractive in the least; they're usually the types who have huge muscles, play too many sports, and drive nice cars to impress the ladies. The real "man's man" as is viewed in the USA and also Canada to some degree. That's what is typically considered an Alpha, although I don't believe in the myth of the Alpha male either. They are usually loud, stupid, arrogant, and don't read too many books. They're not cultured at all. Sadly, it is true that most dumb women ARE attracted to these kinds, but not all of them. I also know women who will pair themselves with losers, I mean, all those guys in prison with girlfriends for example...and it's not that these men are pseudo-Alphas either. If there is a real Alpha male, he would be someone you'd have to really respect and fear, and just be in awe of, due to his extraordinary intelligence, not his dominating presence.

Aurini is a fag on youtube. Postmodernist, mix it all together lightly, very digestible, fashion, baby! Fashion! Traditionalism with a ounce of New Right race realism, PUA, topped with Tyler Durden Anarcho naturalism, realism... All to please the masses of his followers!

Sounds interesting.

Yea! i love Brat Pitt! Especially his six-pack soooo masculine!

Well, the alphas are the non-porn users, because they still get their morning wood. It's as easy as that. I bet some of the sophisticated kind of men you prefer, because you're not superficial, jerk too much to internet porn. That's just the way it is. That's why men and women today tend to be so unhappy with each other. The betas are impotent internet porn addicts and the alphas just get immense egos from getting all the women.

Porn is sex minus the spiritual element.
The participants are reduced to body parts, simple animals, the sensations of copulating.
This is materialism, in its most basic definition, and hedonism, in its most immediate appreciation, expressing human degradation.

The participants can be anyone, as they are but conduits for vicarious experiencing. What matters is that they have the right body-parts in the right proportions. The proportions are indicative of modern exaggerations, trying to compensate for decay, just as Hypermasculinity is a product of declining masculinity.
When numbness takes hold the experience has to be inflated to make an impact.

Because all are interchangeable, recyclable, it does not matter who they are as people. They are simply erections, mammary glands, and orifices.
Sex has lost its purpose. It is now an activity one participates in with the ignorant abandonment to instinct of a beast.

Of course its social function is to offer a release to otherwise repressed and pressurized energies.
It also provides an ideal which all must aim for, or suffer the feelings of inadequacy. It is another way of emasculating young males.
The reduction of sex to its action is a reduction of meaning.

Man places meaning on his actions, and upon all activity (nature). This reduction is a reduction of the meaning men have placed upon the natural compulsion of fornication.

And how does htis male become the primary breeder?

What about chimpanzee social structures?
Who mates and how much and why him and not his brother or his son or his cousin?

Having read many philosophers, I consider what some of them say "common sense".
For instance, when I read Nietzsche for the first time I was struck by how magnificently he expressed to me what I had felt for a long time. His words, beautifully constructed as they were, told me of something which I could only consider logical and sensible…and could not believe why it was not more common.

But how common is sense?
I remember the words of Orwell whom also told me things I already felt…as if he was simply putting words to my own judgments:

a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent
men.

You shouldn't automatically disenfranchise your ideas. Let them stand on their own merit.

That wasn't my intention. I simply meant that for a man or anyone for that matter to pray as a means for their salvation or self-improvement won't change anything. You can spend all the time in the world thinking about taking an action, but if you don't end up taking action it is ultimately pointless.

What characteristics are we talking about here?

Why apologize for actions and behaviors independent of your own?

Why are your "sisters" to blame for this? Men make the choice of making and watching porn of their own accord.

In order for there to be some self-integrity and self-worth one would have to know thyself.

Your opinions are no less important or significant than mine or anyone else.No, your "sisters" are not to be blames for emasculating men. men are resisting becoming men, longer and longer doing their best to postpone all the decisions that mark the passage into adulthood–getting a job, moving out of their parents’ home, getting married, and having kids–in order to enjoy the lad lifestyle of online porn, drinking, and casual sex..you see men in their 20's,30's hooked on video games & wasting away their lives..It's no wonder women don't respect men these days.

I too have little or no interest in saving mankind or "humanity".Most people are scum,who are not worth saving.I want the sheeple to remain as stupid they are. The best we can do is pity them & exploit them to serve our needs..

So let's talk about what porn is then. New to me from the neuroscience vids above, is that it is a drug. And a very strong one and the addiction is more likely than alcohol and nicotine even.

As a Nietzschean my goal is to overvome my Christianity. And not just in a superficial way overcome my nihilism.

Porn is CHRISTIAN. That is most important to me. Chritianity too abases the body. Degrades it, to a sack of meat, that is full of evil desires and lust. The same thing happens in Pornography.

I am aware that my nihilism is also an eastern one towards the void. This element too is included in porn. We have the meaninglessness of sex, the diverse sexpartners, all interchangeable. The individual doesn't count, just like in tibetan Buddhism.

This is the tip of the Judeo-Christian iceberg. Or the bottom of the deepest judeo-christianity, that Nietzsche wished to overcome.

Nietzsche would have rejected PORN! This is probably most important for most people on here. With Nietzsches "Antichrist", he meant to overcome Christianity and not fall into the traps Christianity itself created: the perversions and orgies the priests celebrated behind closed doors. Nietzsche didn't want to be just reactionary to Christianity, in that he would live that openly, what they lived in secret. He wanted to go a whole different path than Christianity.
A noble honorable path, that is in touch with nature. Not putting it on an alter and worshipping it. (That's not Paganism: the worship of nature, like some Neopagans do believe). But aware of nature and the real spirit, that is not caged in by theistic dogmas.

Christianities GOOD LOVING god, calls for an evil antagonist. So that's why Christians were always the biggest sinners. The sickest perverts in history. Nietzsche knew that. And his "Antichrist" was therefor something BEYOND this dualism of good and evil, that always go together hand in hand. And one cannot live without the other.

Nietzsche wanted to go a third path. Beyond the dualism of good and evil. Porn is just the evil side of Christianity. Like Prostitution also. But Porn is still Christianity. Like the devil is part of the Christian God.

Sex is based on a chemical intoxication.
How else could a male risk life and limb to get a chance to fornicate, without, in the lower species, having a clue about genes and future and legacy?

The sexual frenzy is not conducive to the individual’s survival, which is why one can live an entire life as a virgin or a eunuch.
Although, because species are founded on reproduction the individual does suffer the organic consequences of not relieving itself sexually. The chemicals build-up, even when castrated, to the point where they begin damaging the cells.

Furthermore, the psychology of the individual is affected, as psychology is also man organic by-product…and not so much a stellar one.
The brain is affected by the slight, unperceived, (inter)actions of the organs participating in its existence.
The sexual organs are a part of it, and the age one is castrated, literally, might have an effect on the psychological results.

I do believe eunuchs have been reported to live above the male average.

All this to say that this addiction to porn is a side-effect of this chemical intoxication; a withdrawal symptom seeking satisfaction through alternate methods…like a nicotine addict who then turns to food to deal with the symptoms of withdrawal.

The relationship of the feminine, the instinctive, intuitive, irrational, and the ordered, the rational is what we are dealing with.
The feminine, being an agency of nature, is this tumbling towards the chaotic.

Females find their only power through sex, and their sexual promise.
Males must be driven insane, using biochemical, to make them act in a manner which is detrimental to their own well-being.
Marriage, monogamy, was supposed to deal with this naturally induced madness, by providing each male with a steady, accessible, outlet.
This inhibited the destructive behavior of sexual madness.

What is so sinister about modernity is that it uses both kinds of nihilism. The one towards the state/god and the one towards the void (in a sense of lost identity and interchangeability of the individual). In Porn we see this combination very clearly.

Quote :

Yes, but the natural drive for sex or the self-release through masturbation when no partner is available is way lower than the enhancement through internet porn. It's a pity there are some who advocate celibacy in this antiporn scene that seems to be growing, as if it was an inevitable part of it. As well as the Christian fanatics, with their bullshit rethoric. But fortunately there is some valid science as well.

Quote :

I've just been a few days now. I wasn't an excessive user and turned it down before, but the first 24 and 48 hours, I kind of felt some withdrawal. It's the regularity. I did look at some porn daily, even if only for a short while. And that's a habit. An addiction. But science says the sex drive naturally goes to near zero in the first period of withdrawal. That shows that porn artificially enhances some kind of sexdrive or hornyness, that is unnatural. That too might wear off on the cells. I'd assume people who masturbate excessively, age faster.

Quote :

Males must be driven insane, using biochemical, to make them act in a manner which is detrimental to their own well-being.

That's it. I realize now that porn is insanity. It is an artificial crazyness one adapts for the female body. The brain is wired to look at women as sex-objects. This is not natural to that excessive degree.

Quote :

Marriage, monogamy, was supposed to deal with this naturally induced madness, by providing each male with a steady, accessible, outlet.
This inhibited the destructive behavior of sexual madness.

The MGTOW and MRAs would of course side with the poor men of today, in the usual western cause and effect pattern. It is like candy for the poor. At least the poor men have high speed internet and can jerk off to the newest 20 year old Ukranian Bikinimodel. I realize now that I'd rather be with an avarage looking woman of my age or even a little older in real life than that. It is the objectification of women. That's the nihilism towards the void. Transhumanism. Why so many porn actresses go for the plastic surgery. They want to look all the same, like some computer calculated ideal sexpuppet or robot.

There is nothing "sinister" about the modern, as a concept.
Modern simply means popular or current.
It just so happens that in our time and palce Modern is dominated by a nihilistic infection, which started two thousand, or so, years ago.

It is the nihilism and its anti-nature, anti-life, anti-reality, which exemplifies what is current today which is at issue.

In porn the participants are stripped not only of their clothing but of their characters. They become mere representations of the idea of man. They become organ with no past.
This is what we mean by nihilism. An organism, a unity, cut off from its past.
It becomes the immediate, the now and here, the useful. It is stripped of its quality, and becomes sheer quantity: size, weight, mass, numbers.

I'm just envisioning levels of human infidelity to that of a cave man discovering his own cock.


Men like to fantasize, usually taking the fantasy over reality.....especially isolated nerds that can't get with attractive women like those seen in their porno flicks. It's not hard to do the math. Lots of testosterone levels equals higher sex drive...males look for the easiest outlet and this leads the way to porn addiction.

I think the rate of porn addiction is sad and grotesque but I'm also not a man and I don't think like one. I care more about feelings and actual relationships.

The feminization of man entails a pseudo-liberation of females.
A reversal, a de-evolution, back to a more primal state.
It entails a destruction of a technology...marriage and monogamy being forms of technology: methods of husbandry.

This forces males to revert, as if it were difficult to revert.

But reversal is not total, as the system oversees it all, controlling the process.

Why so shy?
It's about the choice of characters.
Even this one.

Purple Dragon, in the dungeon, identified with the Red Dragon character.
Why this sexually frustrated male?
Do you feel more woman than man?

Are you a woman trapped in your feminine form, thinking of yourself as more male?
Which is it?

You're correct, but in any case I would recommend: literature rather than internet porn.

The effect of porn is that it actually destroys the important imagination within sex and leads to erectile dysfuntion. Like in the above vid with the rats, that rather go without eating and drinking (and die) just to get their dopamine stimulated.

I downloaded Baudrillards "Seduction" as pdf. (Porn goes without Seduction.) There is a chapter on porn in it. The movie "Videodrome" (1983) deals with this topic as well. Foucault has talked about it too.

Niklas Luhmann wrote on it: that in porn nothing is left to the imagination. Everything is shown.

And that exactly is the problem. Erotic deals within the subtle, the hidden, the not fully exposed. Once you see everything, all "magic" is lost and thereby all what's interesting.
Esther Vilar made an interesting remark in her book "The manipulated man" (that I highly recommend)
Quote :

(my translation):
"Man does not purchase the numerous pornographic magazines for his own pleasure - he'd have more enjoyment on another niveau -, but in the desperate hope that by these strong stimuli, he stays always fit and on the height of his male myth."

That this equation actually goes in the opposite direction, is what todays neuroscience proves. (Erectile dysfuntion) The quote reminds me of Gilles Deleuzes' "Capitalism and Schizophrenia".

"And accompanying this encroachment of powers, scattered sexualities rigidified, became stuck to an age, a place, a type of practice. A proliferation of sexualities through the extension of power; an optimization of the power to which each of these local sexualities gave a surface of intervention; this concatenation, particularly since the nineteenth century, has been ensured and relayed by the countless economic interests which, with the help of medicine, psychiatry, prostitution, and pornography, have tapped into both this analytic multiplication of pleasure and this optimization of the power that controls it. Pleasure and power do not cancel or turn back against one another; they seek out, overlap, and reinforce one another. They are linked together by complex mechanisms and devices of excitation and incitement." -Foucault in "History of Sexuality I"

_____________________

"Nico seemed so beautiful only because her femininity appeared so completely put on . She emanated something more than beauty, something more sublime, a different seduction.
And there was deception: she was a false drag queen, a real woman, in fact, playing the queen. It is easier for a nonfemale/female than for a real woman, already legitimated by
her sex, to move amongst the signs and take seduction to the limit. Only the non-female/female can exercise an untainted fascination, because s/he is more seductive than sexual . The fascination is lost when the real sex shows through; to be sure, some other desire may find something here, but precisely no longer in that perfection that belongs to artifice alone. Seduction is always more singular and sublime than sex, and it commands the higher price." -from Baudrillard "Seduction"

_______________________

"Schizoanalysis and Collectivity

To be anti-oedipal is to be anti-ego as well as anti-homo,
willfully attacking all reductive psychoanalytic and political analyses
that remain caught within the sphere of totality and unity, in order to
free the multiplicity of desire from the deadly neurotic and Oedipal
yoke. For Oedipus is not a mere psychoanalytic construct, Deleuze and
Guattari explain. Oedipus is the figurehead of imperialism, "colonization
pursued by other means, it is the interior colony, and we shall see that
even here at home ... it is our intimate colonial education." This
internalization of man by man, this "oedipalization," creates a new
meaning for suffering, internal suffering, and a new tone for life: the
depressive tone. Now depression does not just come about one fine day,
Anti-Oedipus goes on, nor does Oedipus appear one day in the Family
and feel secure in remaining there. Depression and Oedipus are agencies
of the State, agencies of paranoia, agencies of power, long before being
delegated to the family. Oedipus is the figure of power as such, just as
neurosis is the result of power on individuals. Oedipus is everywhere.
For anti-oedipalists the ego, like Oedipus, is "part of those things we
must dismantle through the united assault of analytical and political
forces ."4 Oedipus is belief injected into the unconscious, it is what gives
us faith as it robs us of power, it is what teaches us to desire our own
repression. Everybody has been oedipalized and neuroticized at home, at
school, at work. Everybody wants to be a fascist. Deleuze and Guattari
want to know how these beliefs succeed in taking hold of a body,
thereby silencing the productive machines of the libido. They also want
to know how the opposite situation is brought about, where a body
successfully wards off the effects of power. Reversing the Freudian
distinction between neurosis and psychosis that measures everything
against the former, Anti-Oedipus concludes: the neurotic is the one on
whom the Oedipal imprints take, whereas the psychotic is the one
incapable of being oedipalized, even and especially by psychoanalysis.
The first task of the revolutionary, they add, is to learn from the
psychotic how to shake off the Oedipal yoke and the effects of power, in
order to initiate a radical politics of desire freed from all beliefs. Such a
politics dissolves the mystifications of power through the kindling, on all
levels, of anti-oedipal forces—the schizzes-flows—forces that escape
coding, scramble the codes, and flee in all directions: orphans (no
daddy-mommy-me), atheists (no beliefs), and nomads (no habits, no
territories). A schizoanalysis schizophrenizes in order to break the holds of
power and institute research into a new collective subjectivity and a
revolutionary healing of mankind. For we are sick, so sick, of our selves!

It is actually not accurate to say that Deleuze and Guattari develop
the schizoanalytic approach, for, as they show, it has always been at
work in writers like Miller or Nietzsche or Artaud. Stoned thinking
based on intensely lived experiences: Pop Philosophy.

To put it simply, as does Miller, "everybody becomes a healer the
moment he forgets about himself." And Miller continues: "Reality is
here and now, everywhere, gleaming through every reflection that meets
the eye. . . . Everybody is a neurotic, down to the last man and woman.
The healer, or the analyst, if you like, is only a super-neurotic. ... To be
cured we must rise from our graves and throw off the cerements of the
dead. Nobody can do it for another—it is a private affair which is best
done collectively."5 Once we forget about our egos a non-neurotic form
of politics becomes possible, where singularity and collectivity are no
longer at odds with each other, and where collective expressions of
desire are possible. Such a politics does not seek to regiment individuals
according to a totalitarian system of norms, but to de-normalize and
de-individualize through a multiplicity of new, collective arrangements
against power. Its goal is the transformation of human relationships in a
struggle against power. And it urges militant groups, as well as lone
individuals, to analyze and fight against the effects of power that
subjugate them: "For a revolutionary group at the preconscious level
remains a subjugated group, even in seizing power, as long as this power
itself refers to a form of force that continues to enslave and crush
desiring-production. ... A subject-group, on the contrary, is a group
whose libidinal investments are themselves revolutionary, it causes
desire to penetrate into the social field, and subordinates the socius or
the forms of power to desiring-production; productive of desire and a
desire that produces, the subject-group always invents mortal forma-
tions that exorcize the effusion in it of a death instinct; it opposes real
coefficients of transversality to the symbolic determinations of subjugation,
coefficients without a hierarchy or a group superego." There can be
no revolutionary actions, Anti-Oedipus concludes, where the the relations
between people and groups are relations of exclusion and segregation.
Groups must multiply and connect in ever new ways, freeing up
territorialities for the construction of new social arrangements. Theory
must therefore be conceived as a toolbox, producing tools that work; or
as Ivan Illich says, we must learn to construct tools for conviviality
through the use of counterfoil research.6 When Illich speaks of "convivial
reconstruction," he is very close to Deleuze and Guattari's notion of
a "desiring-revolution." Like Deleuze and Guattari, Illich also calls for a
radical reversal of the relationships between individuals and tools or
machines: "This reversal would permit the evolution of a life-style and
of a political system which give priority to the protection, the maximum
use, and the enjoyment of the one resource that is almost equally
distributed among all people: personal energy under personal control."7
All three authors agree that such a reversal must be governed by a
collective political process, and not by professionals and experts. The
ultimate answer to neurotic dependencies on professionals is mutual
self-care.8

Freed from a psychoanalytic framework, the political group or
collective cannot, however, push aside the problem of desire. Nor can it
leave desire in the hands of new experts. It must analyze the function of
desire, in itself and in the groups with which it is involved. What is the
function of desire, Anti-Oedipus asks, if not one of making connections?
For to be bogged down in arrangements from which escape is possible is
to be neurotic, seeing an irresolvable crisis where alternatives in fact
exist. And as Deleuze and Guattari comment, "perhaps it will be
discovered that the only incurable is the neurotic."

We defend so cautiously against our egoically limited experiences,
states Laing in The Politics of Ex perience, that it is not surprising to see
people grow defensive and panic at the idea of experiencing ego-loss
through the use of drugs or collective experiences. But there is nothing
pathological about ego-loss, Laing adds; quite the contrary. Ego-loss is
the experience of all mankind, "of the primal man, of Adam and perhaps
even [a journey] further into the beings of animals, vegetables and
minerals."9 No age, Laing concludes, has so lost touch with this healing
process as has ours. Deleuze and Guattari's schizoanalytic approach
serves to begin such a healing process. Its major task is to destroy the
oedipalized and neuroticized individual dependencies through the forg-
ing of a collective subjectivity, a nonfascist subject—anti-Oedipus.
Anti-Oedipus is an individual or a group that no longer functions in
terms of beliefs and that comes to redeem mankind, as Nietzsche
foresaw, not only from the ideals that weighed it down, "but also from
that which was bound to grow out of it, the great nausea, the will to
nothingness, nihilism; this bell-stroke of noon and of the great decision
that liberates the will again and restores its goal to the earth and his hope
to man; this Antichrist and antinihilist. . . He must come one day.—"10

Unlike Nietzsche's antinihilist, however, Deleuze and Guattari's
anti-Oedipus is not alone. Anti-Oedipus is not the superman, It is not
transcendent. Where Nietzsche grew progressively more isolated to the
point of madness, Deleuze and Guattari call for actions and passions of a
collective nature, here and now. Madness is a radical break from power
in the form of a disconnection. Militancy, in Deleuze and Guattari's
framework, would learn from madness but then move beyond it, beyond
disconnections and deterritorializations, to ever new connections. A
politics of desire would see loneliness and depression as the first things
to go. Such is the anti-oedipal strategy: if man is connected to the
machines of the universe, if he is in tune with his desires, if he is
"anchored," "he ceases to worry about the fitness of things, about the
behavior of his fellow-men, about right or wrong and justice and
injustice. If his roots are in the current of life he will float on the surface
like a lotus and he will blossom and give forth fruit. . . . The life that's in
him will manifest itself in growth, and growth is an endless, eternal
process. The process is everything."11 It is this process—of
desiring-production—that Anti-Oedipus sets out to analyze.

For if desire is repressed in a society, Deleuze and Guattari state,
this is hardly because "it is a desire for the mother or for the death of the
father; on the contrary, desire becomes that only because it is repressed,
it takes that mask on under the reign of the repression that models the
mask for it and plasters it on its face. . . . The real danger is elsewhere.
If desire is repressed, it is because every position of desire, no matter
how small, is capable of calling into question the established order of a
society: not that desire is asocial; on the contrary. But it is explosive;
there is no desiring-machine capable of being assembled without demolishing
entire social sectors."

Deleuze and Guattari conclude that desire, any desiring-machine, i;
always a combination of various elements and forces of all types. Hence
the need to listen not only to revolutionaries but to all those who know
how to be truly objective: "Revolutionaries, artists, and seers an
content to be objective, merely objective: they know that desire clasps
life in its powerfully productive embrace, and reproduces it in a way all
the more intense because it has few needs. And never mind those who
believe that this is very easy to say, or that it is the sort of idea to be
found in books."

-Mark Seem, from the Introduction to "Anti-Oedipus" by Deleuze/Guattari

One thing about porn and it's popularity may be: that it is violent. Most of it. Violence is something that is cast out of modernity. It is considered evil, like Hannibal Lecter. Sex in the public image is flowery and nice and lovely. And something like chewing chewing gum. That you do, without much involvement or emotions. Porn is the other side of this falseness. Both are false. In Porn violence is exaggerated, making up for the other extreme of the lovely image sex has in the public mainstream. Both extremes are wrong and symptoms of modern denial of nature. A repressed sexuality in mass culture.

Porn is violent.
It is pure activity, with no spiritual content.
Flesh on flesh...pure emotion, pure sensation with no goal, no motive, no reason.

Penetration is a violent act.
The entire culture is built on violence and vileness.
The female is FUCKED...debased, lowered to her lowest level.
The male FUCKS angrily...with resentment. He expunges his repressed masculinity. He explodes with pressurized instincts.

Porn is mostly male oriented, because it is the male which must be turned from a free-radical into a brain-dead, docile, spent, automaton.
A corpse acting out of unfocused, undiscriminating hunger.

A male fucks just about anything: fat, short, ugly, animal, cripple...ANYTHING.
He does not make love to it...he hammers it.

Re: the My Little Pony guy (I assume he's a guy), I know of other young men today who are emamoured of the My Little Pony tv show. From a woman's perspective, I find this incredibly dismaying. (These are toys that I played with when I was ten.)

How old we now? In fact, this is one reason I subbed to Satyr's channel and was led to this forum...this entire culture of men acting like children/girls is frightening to me, not in a sense of actually being scared, but frightening in that it seems like an entire civilisation and culture is just going down the drain. I can't even believe there are men in their twenties and thirties who are MLP fans.

Retardation is a stunting of mind and body.
Sheltering does this.

Domestication is just that.
Is not a dog, especially certain breeds, a retardation of the canine species?
The excessive friendliness...the fearlessness....the curiosity not retrained by experience...the constant desire to play, to expel energies with no goal, no direction, no outcome...like casual sex.

What are we being asked to value?

Living in the moment - the very definition of the animal experience.
Youthfulness - perpetual inexperience and naivete.
Impulsive behavior - giving in to the immediate, again as an animal would.
A shrinking of one's perceptual-event-horizon....a castration from the past: a loss of identity, a contra-nature, a loss of a counter-balance to the immediate - no reference point.

All this amounts to an absence of spirituality.
Now give one so empty an extreme, a caricature to overcompensate for the internal void, and you've got a religious fanatic, a zealot.
