Live in 1950s or Today?

Postby Live Free or Die » Wed Mar 15, 2017 5:09 pm

The question is simple. Would you rather live in the 1950s with the Leave it to Beaver lifestyle or today where it is a free for all?

1950s: Married young to a woman who probably wasn't attracted to you. She would lay back and think of England a couple times a year while you had sex with her. Have the standard 2-3 children. Work a lifetime for the same company.

Today: Sexual and economic free for all. No restrictions, no fault divorce, etc. Constantly switch partners and switch jobs.




As for me - I much prefer a free for all as I don't like constrictions on my freedom.

The 1950s as some sort of ideal period is pretense and fantasy.

The various television programs portraying that 'ideal' were entertainment productions after all.

Women don't owe men anything. Not a smile. Not sex, Not even empathy or compassion. Men don't owe women anything either. Not interest. Not resources. And definitely not commitment or children.

Are you asking us if we'd prefer painful knowledge or comfortable ignorance? Isn't that the offer Neo was given?

I'll take knowledge every time. I can handle it--my whiskey collection is big enough.

But you can't. You have to take the '50s as they were and today as it is.

I don't know what the future holds, but experiencing the events of the past year (Brexit, Trump) is beyond anything we could have experienced 60+ years ago.

I'll take today with all of its warts.

You have to see the 50's in context.

The thirties were a nightmare for most, economically and politically.

The first half of the forties were a fight for survival for a large part of the world.

Europe was in ruins, Japan had been nuked and defeated, Russia lost a huge chunk of its people and the US...

Pretty much unscathed compared to everyone else.

We had an intact infrastructure, massive manufacturing capability ready to shift from guns to butter, and a population that just wanted to enjoy some good times for a change.

Add to that the GI bill and all those men coming home to be civilian suburban daddies.

It lasted for twenty to twenty five years.

It was a great time to exist as I remember it.

The Space Age. The baby boom and the growth of modern suburbia. Really nice cars. Television.

And except for occaisional dick measuring contests with the USSR, and Korea, relatively peaceful.

The early and mid sixties, well it started to unravel when JFK got shot, but it was a great time to be a kid.

If I had a time machine, I'd go back to the seaside town we lived in in 1957.

I'd go back to it in a heartbeat.

All the fucked up shit we all deal with notwithstanding, I'd much prefer to be an adult now than in the 1950s.

I'm glad I don't live in a time when the truth about a woman's nature was unavailable to me.

I'm glad I don't live in a time when I'd have no choice but to suffer in silence married for the rest of my life to someone who despises me.

I'm glad I don't live in a time when career opportunities and advancement were limited only to married men.

I'm glad I don't live in a time when I'd have to get married in order to get laid.

Yeah, fuck all that with a fire hose.

Probably the fact that women lose any attraction they may have had for any man that proves himself beta chump enough to put a ring on her.

But that's just a guess.

A lot of those women hit the eject button once no fault divorce (along with cash and prizes) became available. They married because they were under a lot of pressure to do so. The last thing they wanted was to become the leftover spinster. So they married reliable beta chumps and cheated on them while they were at work since they couldn't frivorce them for cash and prizes at the time. My late mother, who was VERY tradcon, told me, while unable to hide the disgust in her voice, about all the cheating wives in our pristine, 1960's California neighborhood. She also told me that they rode the carousel back then as well.

It was no different back then, it was just kept under wraps for the sake of keeping up appearances. The only thing different was that you needed a valid reason to divorce, which is why some people would hire a detective when they knew they were being hoodwinked, so they could present evidence in court.

Well, look at it this way, the muzzies will probably just want to kill you. And death sets you free. So there's that.

Figure there will be a few years of Europe being all muzzie/muzzie dominated. Then the people of Europe become sick of being ruled by a medieval death cult, and Europe will descend into war.

Figure 2017-2020 for the take over of Europe by muzzies, then maybe 2020-2025-ish for the " being ruled by muzzies" years, then 2025 - ? for the purging.

I think it will take longer, as they aren't close to critical mass yet. That said, if the current trend continues then it is inevitable, but I think it won't be until after say 2050 or maybe even later. There are 500 million people and IIRC there are about 20 million Muslims in the EU. The muzzies won't need to be the majority to take over, but they will need to be a lot more than 20 million.

I voted for Today, even though a lot of the comedy and music I like was popular in the 1950s.

Classic British stuff like the Goon Show in the UK and Big Band and Jazz both British and American.

I prefer stuff that was mainly 20's to 40s in terms of the Jazz but it was till popular in the 50s even though Rock and Roll was in the ascendance.

I get a warm feeling when I watch/listen to stuff made in the 50's, even though I wasn't born for another 30 years or so!

I love the culture but I voted for today because I'd miss the technology even if society is going down the tubes morally and the "pop" music is not at all to my taste!

If I could go with current knowledge, I'd take the 50's!

Because by 1970, with my investments, "inventions", and selective assassinations, I'd be the unquestioned Emperor of the Milky Way ruling from a throne of skulls in a golden palace on the Imperial Galactic capital planet of Earth.

If I had to go to the 50's without present knowledge, then fuck no! It's NEVER been a better or easier time to be a bachelor!

Today. Because technology.

Concern about the state of marriage and divorce and gender relations is no longer a problem. Because MGTOW.

Concern about the way that Society is driving itself off a cliff is no longer a problem. Because MGTOW.

There's that ever present and completely pernicious "Leave it to Beaver" fallacy, regarding the fifties, again.

I'd like to share a little pearl of wisdom, I acquired some years ago, with all of you.

In one of his more generous "teaching" moments, my pops once informed me in no uncertain terms that "That show was total bullshit, a fucking teevee show and a completely unrealistic one at that, for God's sake...", when I asked him if life was so "black and white", back then.

To hear him tell it, everyone and their brother was not only grieving the loss of one or more of their sons in the latest banker war, but they were also scared shitless Ivan was gonna nuke the joint. All duck and cover bullshit, propagated by fifties era BDG, as we now see, quite obviously as plain as the noses on our faces, but very real to him and everyone else, back then. Fear mongering 1.0.

Sure, it could be said that while all this BDG psy-op bullshit was going on (yes, even then), we had also achieved our "cultural" and economic zenith back then. The GDP for that decade has never been eclipsed, not even close, marriage rates were pretty much on par with the GDP, there were millions more jobs than bodies to fill them, and women were only to be found in the kitchen, the classroom, or the secretarial pool. In spite of all this, that pussy plantation was just an absolute man killer. Men died on the job in uncounted droves back then, in order to "provide". That's a pretty hard blemish for any contemporary man to ignore. Though the economy, marriage/nuclear family and even "patriotism" was bigger than ever before, because "we won the big one", a long slow decline nevertheless began with the sixties hippies, commies and femhags.

There would be no way for the men of that era to stop this, as we now see, again as plainly as our own schnozes. Indeed, I imagine the poor bastards of that time were absolutely gobsmacked into stunned inactivity, by the heinous words and actions of their traitorous wives, daughters, mothers and sisters, as ALL women and the manginas they voted into power began running roughshod over not only men's constitutional and human rights, but their very birthright, as men.

Alas, unchecked female hypergamy/misandry, a surplus of brand new boomer men for the women to choose from and be choosy about it, and a big gulp sized swig of the feminist fun drink, by all of society, would absolutely ensure the eventual downfall of the pussy plantation.

It only took sixty grueling years, but yeah.

Here we are, at long last, brothers.

Let me tell you all something, right now; I would much rather live today, post feminist apocalypse, knowing the full truth, and being fully equipped to handle our gender enemy, now fully exposed, on every single front.

It's now the best time in human history to be a single man and enjoy your freedom at the same time, so why the Hell wouldn't you?

Only a pussy blind fool would wish for the ass backward, pussy worshiping, male slaving, flag waving, blue pill retard world of 1950's Americunt.

My head is shook by the very idea.

Tomorrow belongs to MGTOW.

I was born in the late 50s, grew up in the 60s and 70s, watched it all unfold.

I'd take today over the past any time.

As far as I'm concerned all we've lost is a kind of innocence. The outside world seemed bigger and full of all sorts of possibilities back when we knew so little about it, and what we didn't know of unknown parts was filled with complete nonsense by the news and entertainment industry. Maybe Uncle Bill, who fought in a war, came back to add an exotic touch, or a family of Hungarian refugees that lived down the road filled our heads with strange ideas - but the fact is we had so much less in every sense of the word. Less things, less money, less freedom, less understanding.

You can never go back. Doesn't matter what it is. Time unwinds in only one direction. If one doesn't like the way things are going now, all one can do is wait until things pass. But I'm an adaptable guy. I like things the way they are. I'm pretty sure I'll like them even more in the future.
