Our Bray-ve New World

Why were many governors and heads of state so quick to shut down their economies over COVID-19? Will things return to normal? Roosh V, of all people, answered these questions in a thoughtful and incisive video.

I had never paid attention to him, though I had heard peripherally that he was a pickup artist and a vain sort of man. But recently I was told that he had done a nearly five-hour presentation in which he lays out his theory on why the COVID-19 quarantine is happening, and I had to see it for myself. It’s a truly mind-boggling experience to watch him methodically explain the answers to the questions above and then lay out the reasons behind those answers. I believe him, not just because he makes so much sense, but also because he is a good man who has humbly found his way back to faith in God. He hit rock bottom a couple of years ago and discovered that his worldly pursuits were not bringing him happiness, which prompted him to have a complete change of heart, like Saul and many other great men in the scriptures.

You can watch the video for yourself at this link. I will strive to show in my own way (through film) the message that he conveys so eloquently.

Setting the Trap

As I’ve discussed before in my Wedding Singer article, we are living in a culture that is upside down. Some people call it Clown World. I just know that for most of my life I’ve heard all sorts of messages promoting sexual promiscuity as freedom, vices as unchangeable characteristics, debt as the key to prosperity, and so forth. Thankfully, I was raised by wise parents who helped me see through those lies. I’m not perfect, but I do my best to avoid things I can feel are wrong. I’ve seen the steady descent in societal norms up to the present time.

It might seem crazy at first, especially if you haven’t watched the video above, but I think the people at the top pulling the strings and gunning for more power have decided to scrap the system we thought was permanent and replace it with a much different one. You see, people in the past few generations (starting with Gen X) have never known a world that wasn’t enticing them to break the rules and go against the way their forebears lived. But this world was never meant to last long. We have been like Pinocchio on Pleasure Island.

Early in Disney’s 1940 adaptation of Pinocchio, Honest John tricks Pinocchio into becoming an actor and nearly becoming enslaved by the evil Stromboli. It wasn’t enough for the villainous fox to encourage Pinocchio to be a little disobedient, though. No, he had to basically sell his soul in exchange for gold to subjugate Pinocchio and hundreds of other boys for good, as we see in this scene with the Coachman.

Pleasure Seeking

Pinocchio ignores his conscience in the form of Jiminy Cricket and proceeds to have all the fun he wants on Pleasure Island. This includes starting fights for no reason, smoking, drinking, destroying wholesome art and structures, and other hedonistic acts.

Paying the Price

That’s right where the Coachman wants these boys. He set up this world specifically to cater to the boys’ vices and encourage them to be as evil as they want because that’s how he gains power over them. People who are addicted to something are easy to control, especially when it’s suddenly withdrawn from them. If we’re focused exclusively on diversions, we won’t be able to notice the doors slamming shut, locking us in a prison we thought was paradise. None of the boys in Pinocchio noticed until it was too late. They thought the party would last forever, but the bill always comes due eventually.

The Home of the Bray-ve

The price for the boys disobeying the rules and shunning common decency is to have their outer selves reflect their inner ugliness. They transform into literal jackasses and are sold into eternal servitude. And if anyone dares to open his mouth and speak up against such poor treatment, he gets the whip. Consider how people in this and other nations who exercise their rights are treated in many instances right now when they attempt to hold worship services, purchase “non-essential” items, speak out against what they perceive to be tyranny, or gather in protest.

It goes against my nature to crave power over another human being, so I can’t fathom what level of depravity one must reach to want to harm another person for their own gain. I don’t understand their way of thinking or why they do what they do. But there are people in this world who operate that way, as Roosh V unveils in his video.

As the Coachman says, we’ve had our fun and now it’s time to pay the price. I don’t think we’re meant to get back to normal because the Pleasure Island we’ve been living on was just a façade to mask what was really happening the whole time. The puppet masters who have made it simple to enjoy hookup culture, courageous to buck normalcy, and easy to get credit have now closed the doors and are herding us into our nice, comfortable cages. My fellow donkeys, welcome to the bray-ve new world.
