Capturing Hearts and Minds

One of the aspects of the current culture war that many other people have a touched on, but never drilled deep into is the ongoing cultural Prisoner’s Dilemma faced by productive members of society and the SJW locusts. Over the last few decades, the SJW locusts have made out like bandits, always choosing the “Betrayal” option, while men of good will continue to choose “Loyalty”. In the last few years, the men of good will have finally found their spine and begun flipping over the table rather than play along with the locusts.

Consider that our society features two main cultures. On the one hand you have the normal people motivated by normal desires. They get up, work hard, raise families, retire, and do what they can to propagate the cycle for another turn of the generations. It’s hard and often thankless work, but at the end of the day, it’s a far more satisfying life than the emptiness of pursuing short term fun and games. It’s also a lot more expensive in terms of time and money, and so considerably less appealing to short term thinkers like the SJWs.

They might be driven by emotional stimulus, rather than rational, but they aren’t stupid. The childless weirdos know thier legacy will die with them, and they need to fill the hole in their lives somehow, so they turn their attention to the fertile fields planted and raised by others. Squandering their lives on short term pleasures and short term thinking means capturing the hearts and mind of other people’s kids serves as the expedient means by which they can pass their destructive worldview along to the next generation.

Which creates the prisoner’s dilemma. Let somebody else bear the cost of raising children, then swoop in to steal the harvest through cartoons (like Xhe-Ra), comics (from the Big Two), and the education system. The American Remnant foolishly trusted the conservatives to conserve that last one, but we’ve learned our lesson and don’t intend to let the rest of the culture go without a fight. We’ll get to that in a minute, but first it’s worth observing a few other points about SJW attempts to capture the hearts and minds of the children of normal men.

For one, childless weirdos lack the experience necessary to have anything useful to pass along to children. They are the last people anyone should trust with thier children’s time or attention. All of their ideas about what kids are, what they like, and what they want, are mere theories with no practical basis in real-world knowledge. Having never experienced the personalities of children – in the womb! – they adhere to the idiocy of the blank slate theory. Having never watched children instinctively reach for toys – at the chromosomal level! – they adhere to the idiocy of gender neutral play time. Having never experienced in real time the relentless needs of the mind of a child, they assume their own experience suffices. This despite the utter failure of their own stunted childhood that to provide them with a deep appreciation of actual adulthood, which is self-evident given their inability to act like an adult and take on their adult responsibilities.

For two, many of these SJWs infiltrate children’s media as predators. But don’t take my word for it. Take it from somebody who lived it.

Either way, these are the last people anyone should entrust with their children’s precious time and attention.

Much to the chagrin of traditional households across the country, Corporate America loves hiring the childless weirdos because they are cheap – no extra mouths to feed at home, you see. But Corporate America gets what it pays for, and that means hollow stories featuring hollow characters having hollow adventures. And the resultant consumer revolt, as seen in tanking ratings (TV) and sales (comics and lit), demonstrates that parents have way more control and influence than Corporate America or their SJW servants realize.

Any media produced for children has to clear the parent hurdle first, or it won’t ever see the light in their children’s eyes. The end-run around parents that worked so well with the education system is failing when faced with the everyday judgement of the marketplace. Parents are turning their backs on their beloved childhood memories as the locusts prop up distorted simulacra devoid of the context and inspirational foundation that made those tales and characters so beloved in the first place. Children might fall for the demons draped in skin-suits of 80’s characters but their parents see through the flimsy disguises.

Which means, like so many other properties hauled out She-Ra revamp – actually, given the way the producers have adopted the de-feminizing strategy of feminism, it could actually be called a devamp – will fail. As it does, we can expect the usual water carriers in the critical media to blame “toxic fans” for not pretending like the skin-walker versions are improvements on the original in fairly short order and to no avail. She-Ra will die a quiet death, and the locusts will move on to another field to ravage.

But the responsible parents will be there, standing guard. And with each iteration, fewer and fewer consumers will be there ready to give up their hard fought legacy. Instead, they will look elsewhere for new alternatives.  Two prime examples leap to mind.

And it’s not just major players like this that are working to deny locusts access to the fertile fields of our children.  Thousands of decent men and women have taken up the pen to produce content suitable for the preservation of civilization and the continued prosperity of future generations.  My own tale of a decent man caught up in a fight bigger than any he imagined and fighting to save his family – and all of Galactic Christendom – from the predations of an alien empire makes for a clean, inspirational, and fun alternative to the major media productions.  Suitable for you and your kids, you won’t be disappointed.

About Jon Mollison

Jon Mollison was weaned at the literary knee of Tolkein, Howard, Moore, and Burroughs. He spent decades wandering in the wilderness of modern genre fiction, wondering when the magic and wonder went out of the world of dragons and space ships. In his darkest hour, he encountered a wise man who handed him the open secrets to crafting works that emulate the stories of the great authors who built the genre. They are easily summarized in but two words: Regress Harder. Now one of the twelve champions of the Pulp Revolution, his self-published works represent a more direct lineage to the tales of action, mystery, romance, virtue, and pure unalloyed adventure than the bland imitations churned out by New York City publishing houses in recent decades.
