SJWs Are WRONG! Hierarchy and Oppression Is Good!

In this modern age there is all sorts of nonsense emanating from universities about oppression this and patriarchy that. I may be sympathetic to liberal values, but one of the things wrong with this century is that we have forgotten the positive aspects of hierarchy and oppression, and we have become increasingly anarchic in our world-view.

The source of this levelling movement, this assault against hierarchy and privilege and oppression, is the result of what Friedrich Nietzsche called slave morality. In the days of the Roman Empire, the slaves, envying their masters and desiring to have the life they had, a life of pride and power and ambition and self-confidence, condemned their masters as evil and made their characteristics, like kindness, meekness and poverty, into virtues. Out of this violent hatred for our betters came Christianity, socialism, anarchism all the other egalitarian -isms that plague our society today.

Hierarchy did not come out of nowhere. It developed within human societies as part of a natural Darwinian process of the strong conquering the weak and the intelligent manipulating the stupid. Those with the inborn talent to lead seized power, and much of society, accepting that there was a supreme being worthier than they, surrendered and gave gentle submission. Those who did not accept this would either overthrow their overlords and seize power themselves, or die in the attempt. The supreme beings that came to lead society began to accrue privileges that were necessary for them to showcase their uniqueness and superiority to the masses and mark themselves out as separate men. Those without the guts to rebel would mutter silently against their rightful leaders, complaining of their oppression and subjugation, but could do nothing about it. Such men gave birth to slave morality. Occasionally this manifested itself in slave rebellions designed to destroy society and bring about an anarchic, communistic world in which all hierarchy would be destroyed. Hence the revolt of Spartacus, the German Peasants' Revolt, the Diggers of the English Civil War, the French Revolution and such upheavals. This unholy spirit of revolt spits in the face of hierarchy, and has been a challenge to it throughout human history.

Yet hierarchy is good. It separates the wheat from the chaff, the little men from the small men. Every individual is made to know their place, with the best in society ruling over the most abject and pathetic. It also encourages devotion and subjection to the most heroic and noble individuals in our species. The higher men do not have an obligation to look after the masses as Disraeli asserted, but should look to those in society with the most potential and focus their efforts on them.

Now hierarchy is challenged by post-modern leftists, identity politics, neo-Marxists, an eclectic coalition of 21st-century anarchists, post-colonials, democratic politicians and many more. Masculinity is degraded and degeneracy encouraged. New heroes, adhering to their own moral law, are needed to step forward, seize power and impose a Caesarist hierarchy on society. The restoration of hierarchy will see society renewed as an elite of poets, priests and warriors assert control over society and use it as a vehicle for their own glory and that of humankind.

You reference Disraeli so you think that your argument has credence. Would you disagree with the suggestion that some of those that aren't in the upper echelons of society are supremely intelligent, strong and capable? Hierarchy is about privilege, show me one example of hierarchy in the history of humanity that isn't dominated and coloured by the specter of money, wealth and privilege.

I believe that those who aren't in the aristocracy but are supremely intelligent, strong and capable will get into the aristocracy through merit and through demonstration of courage and skill.

I'm sure this notion was all very well and good in medieval times, which seems approximately where your mind is stuck, where everyone fought with sticks of one shape or another.

These days though we have magical things such as drones and jet fighters. I'm not sure if you read about the recent attempted coup in Turkey, but it didn't go so well. In the past those who were naturally strong might well have risen to the top. You're right in that there are plenty of examples throughout history. The thing is though, we're not in the past, and if your ideologies were still in effect then no matter how degenerate or stupid they became, those at the top would remain at the top. This simply doesn't sound like a healthy progression of society.

IMO SJWs and Meninists like you are just as batshit crazy as each other. Is there any other topic you could debate? Or at least make your statements 50 words max?
