Being limited to this extent is not the way it is in nature. In nature animals are free-er than humans. Be it in the woodland, on the steppe, in the desert, on the tundra or wherever. In nature animals, insects and plants alter their surrounding environment freely, when they choose to do so. They don't need to seek an authority figure to gain permission. Elephants fell trees on the Savannah. Why? Not for eating or the leaves or using the trunk and branches, they do it because they want the environment to be tree-less, to be a grassland. They don't seek permission. They aren't told what to do or not do. They just do it. Because it is their Will. In this world, as it stands, I am not allowed to do that. I am discouraged and denied from doing it, and punished if I do it. This thus infringes on my nature as a man.
One of the rules of the so-called 'civilized' (i.e. domesticated) world is that a man is not allowed to exercise his own nature, ergo he must continually exercise self-restraint. If this rule is enforced too much, if man is tamed too much, then he will simply stop living in the modern world, the civilised world, and will opt out of it. A man who is not allowed to be a man will cease to be a man. He will opt out of it either:
- By giving up his manliness and becoming feminised as the dominant group want him to (e.g. the manginas);
- by giving up his willfulness and becoming apathetic (e.g. the nihilistic element in the Androsphere);
- by not breeding and leaving the gene pool;
- by committing suicide;
- by giving up on his country and leaving for a foreign nation-state (emigrating);
- by giving up on the modern world and resorting to a wild/natural one;
- by developing any number of psychological disorders. Psychological disorders are proven to be positively correlated with urbanisation. (That's right, cities = psychological stress pits)
Rich Zubaty wrote that 'Cities are feminine. Nature is masculine', if that's true then it means that the modern world (that's everything from cereal farming on up) is incompatible with mans nature, which means that either cities must die, or man must die, or some other path must be chosen. If man dies, then the cities will quickly follow behind him, as cities are dependent on men in order to sustain them. But if the cities die then man will just revert back to being a farmer or hunter-gatherer.
So it seems that if people wish to continue to live in some form of high-technology, modern world with all of it's creature comforts instead of living in grass huts then the modern world must become more accomodating to mans need for freedom. It's either that or we end up following the critters in Calhoun's famous mouse experiment and end up with a behavioural sink followed by a population crash (VIDEO ~8 minutes). I don't think anyone wants that. So we'll look at some practical solutions to get the creative juices flowing:
- Reduced population density (low-rise and detached houses, instead of high-rise and terraced houses) so that men do not feel 'enclosed' and develop a ghetto psychology.
- Having more unowned spaces (reverting the 'Inclosure Acts', and having common land again) so that all men are guaranteed some areas to move around in that aren't controlled by society.
- More freedoms in regards to planning regulation.
- More cultural liberty and an ability to express oneself without the absurd risks of imprisonment or social ostracism.
