Ah “Servant Leaders…” Those guys who tell you that in order to be a leader, you must “serve” first and foremost.
Go on, lad, bend the knee.
Everybody has a system or an idea that they want to pitch and sell to you. They want your time, your money, and in their own way, they want you to bend the knee to them.
All religions do this. The State does this. Anyone telling you otherwise is lying to you. Even I’m doing it to you right now as you read this. I’m wanting you to NOT bend the knee to me, but to only bend it for yourself, when it benefits you. Stay sharp, stay alert. Stay focused. Use your critical thinking skills. Realize that damn near everyone “out there” has an agenda.
These agendas may not be “negative” per se, but they are agendas nonetheless. The question is, does their agenda benefit you? If so, great. If not, why should you bend the knee to it? Again, what’s in it for you?
I got pitched an agenda a few days before New Year’s on Twitter. I was told that there was a solution to our modern problems. Would I support it?
I asked, “What’s in it for me?”
You want me to kiss a new ring, which is really the old ring. You want me to swear loyalty and fealty to your “new way” which in the end, is just the old way.
“We will get rid of divorce,” they said.
“Okay, what else?”
“You can’t have it both ways,” they said.
“I understand what you are saying, but what is in it for me?”
“We’ll get rid of the drag-queen show in schools,” they said.
“That is irrelevant to me, for I have no children of my own, and I don’t care about your children.” I said. “Again, what is in it for me? Here is a serious question for you, can I have multiple wives?”
“No. Monogamy is what we are offering.”
“Then you have nothing to offer me, for I already have multiple women in my life who understand that I am non-exclusive and non-monogamous. Why would I choose just one when I can have many?”
The new crown is the old crown, without even a new veneer. Religion has nothing new to offer me. No new answers, no actionable solutions, just more bend the knee. Thank you, but I’ll pass.
A guy brags about doing the laundry or doing the dishes. He’s a leader, just ask him.
A guy nuts in a woman and knocks her up, so he’s an “alpha male!” He’s got a legacy!
Dude, let me get this straight, you got a woman to spread her legs for you, you came inside her, and she got pregnant and gave birth to a child. Welcome to what humanity has been doing since the beginning of time. Congratulations, you are the baseline. Sit down.
A guy takes a photo of his newborn children and posts it on Twitter for all the world to see. That’s not a publicity stunt! He was “genuinely and authentically” showing you how happy he is now that he’s a Dad.
But like the proverbial question about trees falling in the forest, but if no one is around to hear it, did it make a sound? If you don’t post the birth of your children on the internet, did it really happen? And more importantly, are you even a “Real Dad?”
If you don’t proclaim your undying faith to a deity and advertise that fact in your bio, are you even a “Real Christian/Muslim, etc?”
These people are no better than the “pronoun people.”
What are these “Servant Leaders” offering you except more bending of the knee?
Like my quote above, from New Years 2020 no less, what’s in it for you?
Remember, you are not a “real man” unless… (Insert whatever he or she has as the list of requirements.) Or, only a “real man” would/does/has… (Insert that list of requirements again.)
Swap out “real man” for “masculine man,” “masculinity,” whatever, and it’s the same thing.
It’s more hoops for you to jump through. It’s more bullshit for you to achieve. It’s more nonsense that benefits someone else at your expense. It’s another way to keep a boot on your neck and nothing more. Keep that in mind.
Feminism isn’t the only “enemy,” guys. Traditional Conservatives want to put a boot on your neck and keep you on a leash just as bad as feminists, the only difference is the “TradCons” will pretend that they are your friends. They aren’t.
“Servant Leaders” are nothing more than men (usually) who are bending the knee and want you to bend the knee too. “Be like me! It worked for me!”
I’m personally choosing the “Path of the Adversary” on this one.
I bend the knee to no man, no woman, and no deity.
I only reluctantly bend the knee to the State, and that’s only because the State has the ability to exert force upon me. The State is the only entity that can kill or imprison me. Anything else is bullshit.
The “Right Wing” is no better than the “Left Wing.” Both “sides” are of the same coin. Both want to keep you in shackles. Both want to keep you on a leash and put a boot heel to the back of your neck. Neither “side” cares about you. All they care about is what you can do for them. Once your usefulness is over, you will be discarded. You’re cannon fodder to them and nothing more.
