>It's liberating in the same sense as death is. They are disintegrating everything that makes a man so all that remains is a dead, hollow husk or a tortured, abominable freak.
correct. a man cannot fulfill a female svadharma, just as a woman cannot fill ours, and attempts to do so are futile. it's no wonder that the tranny suicide rate is many times the average.
>It's like thinking that your arms are oppressing you because you have to drag them with your body so you cut them off in order to liberate yourself from their weight.
it's also like thinking your foreskin is bad for you when it's a perfectly natural appendage, so you have it amputated. however, this is a tangent.
>There is nothing priestly about them, they are the exact opposite. They have observed certain practical side-effects of religions and utilize them to their ends.
yes, they're the opposite, you could also call them anti-priests. while they lack priestly qualities, they fill a similar cultural role. like the priest, they use their knowledge, eloquence, and ritual training (eg how to act on tv), but unlike the priest, they use these abilities to deceive the people rather than lead them to truth.
I realized this when I compared the proper roles in society to their inverted, corrupted forms under kali yuga. in a dharmic society, there would still be NPCs, but they'd be led towards the right path as much as possible, rather than manipulated and led astray. as for gov't oversight of media, both private and public sectors can be compromised by vested interests. instead of a free press, we have a propaganda ministry. in order to have a press that fulfills its proper function, we need society as a whole to function properly.
keep in mind, bondage in ancient Greece varied quite a bit. there were tutors, galley slaves, helots (who were essentially serfs controlled by the Spartans), who worked under different conditions. slaves were often considered part of a household, and thus had some basic legal protections. also, bondage could be imposed as a legal punishment, and I assume that's what Aristotle meant by νόμος as opposed to φύσις.
>early modern West
the West achieved great things during that era, such as colonization and classical music. however, it seems that the Protestant Reformation was very de-stabilizing. keep in mind, there's a major distinction between the early modern period, and the techno-industrial modern world that arose from three revolutions fomented by the West: the atlantic/political revolution, the scientific revolution, and the industrial revolution. these were all great achievements in their own way, but ultimately set us on a wild, unstable course, far more turbulent than the early modern world, which was already a departure from medieval stability. industry and science can be positive things if developed properly, but they've veered off course. science in particular is a casualty of kali yuga, being employed to buttress ideological dogma and advance coomer/consoomer culture, rather than investigate truth and reality in a rational manner.
>I don't have much to comment on in the rest of your post, and that is not because I am ignoring it, but because we are 100% in agreement and I have nothing to add, especially in regards to your observations on the consequences of the blending of roles, Cultural Marxists and the importance of following our svadharma.
I've always implicitly understood these things, and never quite believed in the doctrines of equality that I was taught. it's only recently that I can articulate these ideas and place them in a proper framework.
