The industrial revolution started a heavy trend towards urbanization and the more recent digital/information revolution has significantly changed the way we communicate with other humans and perceive the world.

The rise of urbanization has created dense centers of humanity which led to the destruction of small, local communities and families as sources of power, and increased the power of large, centralized governments and corporations. This is inevitable as larger bureaucracies become near mandatory to create peaceful conditions for millions of people from different backgrounds, religions, and cultures. However, large bureaucracies become inefficient and unwieldy quickly and result in systems that leave exploitable loopholes for those with resources but at the same time leave many people falling through the cracks, forgotten. This is modern America in a nutshell, where we have the rich driving their Beamers to work past people living on the streets, in pretty much every major city.

Digitization has had two primary effects on humanity:

1. Allowed communication between people who would have never had a chance to communicate before (this forum for instance) which has overall increased our empathy and our drive towards improving human rights.
2. Increased the complexity of everyday life, requiring a more advanced skillset to navigate and live a comfortable life. These skills include both technological and social, both of which require investment to improve. This has widened the gap I described earlier caused by urbanization as those without access to improving their skills are left behind even further. Those who were illiterate before, have no chance of learning how to use a computer today without some kind of intervention.

So where are we now?

We are in a phase where we are connected to others in a modern sense, yet disconnected in a classical.

We are in a phase where we have more freedom and rights to live our lives as we please, unless we were born into a disadvantageous position, where it is, as it always has been, very difficult to catch up.

We are in a phase where life is more complex that it has ever been with the amount of people we have to deal with on a regular basis, the basic skills we need to have to live a good life, and the amount of knowledge required to be able to navigate this world we've created.

Considering all three of these points are very new to humanity on a biological time scale, we will certainly deal with some hiccups and there will be negative consequences. Ain't nothing in this world for free.

So what can we do?

Keep investing into yourself, your education, and your skills. The more knowledge and advanced skillsets you have, the easier it is for you to make a living and the harder it is for you to be left behind by globalization. This is neverending. Make your thirst for knowledge unquenchable.

Keep investing into relationships. As we no longer have local communities by default, we must spend the time to create them, as well as take advantage of the new communication mediums we've been given thanks to the internet and other technologies. We must be wary, as these technologies threaten to become our masters. We cannot let this happen, and instead must master them.

Keep investing into the world. This one is difficult to do as we are up against a global empire that seeks to make profit above all else, but we must make the world a better place for our children and our children's children. We must preserve the opportunities we've been given, but at the same time open up new ones. This is the task of humanity.

RE: Where is the world going?
All these civil people staring at their smartphones, so polite , concerned about offending some fag or tranny...... They will eat each other. Human, the other, other white meat.

By 2030 this world will be in chaos and a great war will wage for many years between good and evil. Good, strong, masculine men will prevail. The globalists will swing by their necks (if their lucky).

The good news is that humans will return to a symbiotic relationship with nature. The earth will heal.

Let us only pray that this is the last time this peculiar species of highly intelligent apes harnesses such vast energy and subsequently develops technology we cant contriol.

RE: Where is the world going?
If you know anything about political realism, then you'll know we haven't done anything new socially or culturally. If you mapped humanity political and social attitudes over recorded history and even what we know about prehistory, it would look like a radio wave (going up and down but in one direction). The only thing that is really different is technological improvements but they are heavily dependent on how we use them rather then relying on them in place of our own 'wits.'

Can't say about the rest of the world but America is going to hell in a handbasket and we are all drunk on our own power thanks to an incompetent government and culture.

There's a play written by one of Socrates's contemporary critics who would say that right now the 'weak speech' is the dominate political power.

1. Any victory will be short lived. The rise and fall of nations lasts ~250 years. The globalists will regain control and fuck shit up again.

2. Yes and no. It will also be a short lived experience.

This, everything is cyclical in life, including life itself. You're born into wearing diapers and if you're lucky enough to live long enough, you end up back in diapers. Unless we're talking about female camgirls shoving baseball bats up their asses for Bitcoins, then you end up in diapers much sooner, Confucius says.

There will never be a point in existence where the species will be able to hit cruise control for the rest of time. I think guys around here seem to gloss over that sometimes.

Civilize the mind but make savage the body.

I make sure I'm going somewhere and that the ones I love in my immediate surrounding have the possibility to also go "there" by joining me.

But feel free to disagree with this, to each his own. Only thing I do care about is the environment... so I try to make my ecological footprint as small as possible.

This is decadence per se. You are alienated from your family, culture and nation. You might don't care obv, but one can say - well-done enlightenment globalists!
At least you are not alienated from your biological nature. But some are and more are yet to come.

You are young, but the thing is that when you are gonna have kids, you will want a fine world where they can meet their potential and live a good life.

They gonna need freedom for that purposes.

And traditional communities like family, local community, nation, and last but not least, civilization, are guards of our freedom, for better or worse.

Why do you think globalists want to dismantle these communities? It's obvious, to have power over us, to impose their order upon us. And they don't want you to be a good and wise man, husband and father, who is in touch with the wisdom of past philosophers and leaders.
They want you to be a good consumer, without any real bonds which could cause a foothold for your autonomy.

That's why we need to defend tradition and traditional communities. For us and our children.
It's not about a particular religion or nation, its about male duty which lasts since the beginning of our species, or earlier.

RE: Where is the world going?
Vars is on point.

Raising masculine, warrior sons to carry the fire is imperative to the freedom of humanity. Also, feminine, cooperative, supportive daughters that seek healthy family formation.

This war will wage many years when it starts, it will be a war of attrition that must be resisted over time. Picking our battles strategically will be paramount.

The globalists underestimate our collective power, that is our advantage.

There is nothing more powerfull for freedom than a father in direct control of his family. Collective patriarchal organization and association breed freedom, liberty.

This is why I like Robert Green’s books, they might not completely work 24/7 but it’s a good intro into the minds of certain leaders and philosophers. A strong mind with the knowledge of past warriors is scary.

I loved yeppers post and then it got a little hokey at the end --- "invest into the world"??? That seemed pro-globalist. Good post top to bottom, though, otherwise.

Get your passport ready!

I remember pondering 'Enjoying the Decline' many years ago and it took me about 5 seconds to realise that it was nothing more than a glorification of 'running away'. That's fine if that's your decision, but 2 second later I realised that one day there simply won't be anywhere (geographically or metaphorically) to run to.

That's already true in so many ways. Amazon, Google, Faceborg, etc. are everywhere. Borders and geography still matter, but they matter less when the same team of oligarchs can conquer your culture from afar with ridiculous ease.

Case in point, Ireland. Silicon Valley brought their culture to it's knees in barely over a decade - something that 400 years of domination by the English couldn't even do. And the Irish are mostly letting it happen, thinking they are becoming "free" in the process. There is no clearer way for a country to signal surrender as a culture and willingness to be a colony of GlobalHomo America than to fly the rainbow flag, legalize human sacrifice (abortion) and promote gay marriage and child sex changes.

Don't get too cocky about it, third worlders, you and your cultures are next. Once everyone is the same, they can sell everyone the same brand of XYZ product with no pesky regional cultures and customs to get in the way - everyone will be living as a homosexual urban perpetual consumer, even if they are not a homosexual. They keep complete control over your subjugated way of life while you bask in your new found "freedom" to make and keep them rich.

The only thing I could see short circuiting this effort would be a massive currency collapse, coupled with destruction of the infrastructure making the cancer spread. Even then, it'd probably be only a temporary reprieve from the moral evil behind it all.

In the meantime, all you can do is educate yourself about what's happening and do your best to help and protect those close to you.

RE: Where is the world going?
It is indeed worth wondering where the world is going, but you should spend a relatively small amount of time wondering about that. The critical issue is to spend most of your time building a "Fortress of Solitude" against most of the bad things that are likely to happen.

For example, have a core investment in agriculture and dwellings. Regardless of what happens, people always need food and housing -- and, unlike paper assets, its value can never drop to zero. Build a life of flexibility and resilience. Build a Fortress of Solitude around a position of FU:
