In this vid we see the end result of feminization. Males being excluded, families breaking apart, creating free-radicals. The very mechanism that integrated males into the system is now breaking apart, or is being released.
The reasons are multiple. A possibility is cultural decline, accompanied by a rise in decadence.
Another possibility is that the old methods are no longer required. Males no longer need to be integrated into the system, but only domesticated, trained, or excluded – incarcerated, denied access into the gene pool etc.
As more and more of the socially desirable, effete, males are permitted to reproduce the need for maintaining order is reduced. Social eugenics is beginning to have an effect.
"By using precise scientific methods and planning, [certain researchers and scientists] begin their onslaught on the domestic cultures of nations--the cultures which are the result of thousands of years of interaction, creativity, and artistic activities. They try to eliminate these cultures in order to separate the people from their identity, and cut their bonds with their own history and values. They prepare the ground for stripping people from their spiritual and material wealth by instilling in them feelings of intimidation, desire for imitation and mere consumption, submission to oppressive powers, and disability." --from Part 5

Joseph Campbell - The Power of Myth
This is invaluable information, to deal with the spiritual crisis in our time. We must learn what mythology is and meant to the ancient people and what value it could still have for people today.

Now you know why Apollo, the Greek gods, the pagan gods in general, and my usage of these symbols and sayings, copied off the the walls of Delphi, are being used.
One must establish a unity by finding a shared mythology, a metaphor, a parabloe reflecting common positions towards existence. Along wiht that a common symbol must be established, something that promotes the feeling of belonging to a particular group.
The 3E was my attempt. The symbols apaosha made was part of it.

It was only in 2008 that I really caught on to Greek Mythology (meeting a follower of german esoteric Thorwald Dethlefsen). My Philosophy teacher in high-school was fond of Homer and narrated some quite lucid, but he was a Communist also. So I never caught fire there. I merely got C's in his class even if I tried really hard. He was my german teacher also, that taught Goethes Faust. Faust II was my first encounter with ancient greek mythology at the age of 18. At the age of 13, I had read "Sophie's World" by Jostein Gaarder of course, which was a great bestseller in Germany at that time. It was the first book of that size I had read and some of it's ideas stuck with me.
The 3E reminds me of the Janus Head, which is analog to the alpha and omega: beginning and end: entrance and exit.
My grandmother collected souveniers and had a sign above one of her doors in her home with the Janus.
What I am not 100% in line with, is the pic from the 300 movie. Though it is a great scene, the movie itself has some flaws in my opinion. It is pop-culture. Let me offer the term "hypermasculinity". There is real masculinity in the movie, but also plenty of exaggerations (which annoyed me watching it a second and third time).
The uniting mythology (for the present day!) of this forum is your "Feminization"-essay from my point of view. So it should have some special place on here. (Even if you're not satisfied with its current version/state. I think the Leonidas death scene, isn't equal to your essay. How about the ruins of Oracle at Delphi today. Ruins representing the state of modernity. The past is crumbling away, but needs to be looked at, while we still have some sources and physical remains. Just my pitch.)
May this place be a Delphi and not a Constaninople!

Santa's Workshop: Inside China's Slave Labour Toy Factories Directed By Lotta Ekelund & Kristina Bjurling
"Sometimes we have no choice, we work till dawn. When you work all night you become dizzy and your eyes hurt because you can't take any breaks."
SANTA'S WORKSHOP takes you to the real world of China's toy factories. Workers tell us about long working hours, low wages, and dangerous work places. Those who protest or try to organize trade unions risk imprisonment.
Low labour costs attract more and more companies to China. Today more than 75% of our toys are made in China. But this industry takes its toll on the workers and on the environment.
The European (and American) buyers blame bad conditions on the Chinese suppliers. But they say that increasingly hard competition gives them no option. Who should we believe? And what can you do to bring about a fairer and more humane toy trade? (Excerpt from video.google.com)
