The True Cost of The Coward
In economics, we often perform cost-benefit analysis to determine a logical pathway forward.
It’s a fairly simple process for economic functions: You sum the potential earnings (benefit) of an action and subtract the costs that occur from that action. If the net gain is large enough for the time and resource investment, you take it.
It gets a bit more tricky when we apply it to our personal lives by bringing in intangible/non-priced items, but the same concept applies. You consider the benefits versus the costs of any action. You then determine how you should proceed, given that information.
I wish more people would perform a cost-benefit analysis on the current political landscape and their current involvement within it. Because if this were to be done, I feel nearly everyone would understand the need for some form of involvement, given the state of our decaying system.
If a society is prosperous—or even average—there is a serious net gain to sitting on the sidelines regarding politics. You get to enjoy the functioning society with minimal input or effort. But once that society is in decline, and especially when it is terminally ill as we are now, the sideline gain is not quite as thrilling. There is little true gain in our current society for the average person.
We could consolidate our main two contrasting situations as follows:
- The cost of high involvement in a prosperous society is low, but the benefit is low. Gain from low involvement is high.
- The cost of high involvement in a terminally ill society is high, but the benefit is high. Gain from low involvement is low.
Note: that benefit might not necessarily be for us directly. It could be for our future descendents or for our overall nation. It depends on the situation.
Therefore, if a prosperous society is already prosperous, there is not much to gain through political involvement. Whether or not the cost is worth the struggle is debatable.
However, if we went from our current situation (terminally ill) to another Christendom, I’d say that benefit would be near incomprehensibly good. The cost is there, but it is not nearly as uncertain as to which approach is better.
In sum, what I’m getting at is that if we did a cost-benefit analysis in a prosperous society, it would not be clearly evident which route for us to take. But if we do a cost-benefit analysis on our current situation, it is very obvious. The benefit of resisting clown world is worth the cost.
Taking that logic further: The cost of being a coward has never been higher than it is right now. The cost of being a fence sitter while the Western World crumbles around you is higher than it has ever been in our past. The loss of our people will be the loss of your generational identity, your kids’ future, and our people’s hope. In my opinion, stopping this is a benefit that outweighs any cost.
In no way can a Westerner claim that this “doesn’t affect them”, even if they flee the states, hide in the woods, or otherwise abandon the fight. Only traitors ignore these realities in favor of their individualist selfishness.
Those that try to mentally hide away from this fight, or to distance themselves, are just coping. But it is an unhealthy form of cope; one that denies reality. I mention these types in my article Pathological Cowardice:
These people are far too afraid to fight, so they run. They then try to twist this into somehow being an “intelligent” response. Hint: if everyone did this, we’d all be destroyed tomorrow, including those hiding in the woods. The only reason these individuals aren’t destroyed yet is because the courageous—like us—stay and fight. Their existence depends on us. Yet, they claim superiority to us. This is typical gamma, pathological cowardice, and projecting behavior.
You see this manifestation often online in the versions of “I fled the country” (often to some dumpster-fire Asian country which is hilarious), “I’m dropping out of society”, or “I have my own land and my own resources. I don’t care what’s happening to everyone else now”. These people are some of the highest cowards who will hoard their own resources in our people’s time of dire need or directly flee and leave us to fight alone.
But make note: If we were to win, these cowards would surely be on the first plane back into our traditional civilization and proclaim they were always on our side. They’d likely even say they somehow fought for it, given the gamma behavior. Stolen valor and all.
This manifestation of individualistic corruption is especially dangerous compared to the other two. It is so because they are destroyers of brotherhood; the weakeners of the vanguards. Their proclamations encourage others to not resist while also subverting other dissidents to not want to fight because these individuals abuse their bond and trust.
They are also horrifically idiotic, because they do not seem to realize that if we, the front-liners, are destroyed—They are next. Their woods, their new country, or their resources won’t save them forever. This centralizer quest for hegemony will come for all unless we stop it.
They are about as brave as a man that proudly proclaims leaving his own wife and children to die at the hands of home invaders, because he’s too afraid to fight (the nation is an extended family, after all). The traitorous hermits are no different, but replace their wife and children being slaughtered with the national remnant that depended on them.
Replace “national remnant” with “the entirety of Western Civilization”, and then you start to realize the gravity of the situation, and why I say the cost of being a coward has never been higher.
If you are European, you are a piece of Western Civilization. It’s in your blood. If the West falls, so do you.
Western Civilization is not some obscure symbology—It is us. It is who we are. We are the West. The degeneration of the West starts inside each of us, and the plagues that are destroying the Civilization piece are the same spiritual degenerations that are destroying the individuals (tolerance for evil, pathological cowardice, individualism, secularization, materialism, et cetera).
Individualism is a weaponized lie; you are part of your people and they are a part of you. You do not get to run or escape it. It is, quite literally, your DNA. Hiding in some other continent or forest changes nothing. It only demonstrates your own character: One of cowardice and abandonment of duty. Doing so may save your body (temporarily), but at the expense of your soul.
Many people claim that a dystopian nightmare is coming. I disagree. A dystopia is already here.
Our entire society and civilization has been infested with corruption and wickedness. Good is bad; bad is good. Truth is fleeting. Our history is crumbling. Our faith is being decimated and pushed to the side. Materialism is overtaking everything.
I believe that this dystopia is one of the worst that any humans have ever faced. Our entire society is designed to be anti-human; to degrade what it means to be who we are. It is the complete opposite of Christendom. (Sidenote: Which is hilarious, as the Enlightenment claimed to be “humanists” in opposition to Christendom; but their beliefs lead to the most anti-human engineered society of all time).
This anti-human approach has removed us from our people and our land. Which is why individualism and civic nationalism are even a thing. None of our ancestors could have comprehended such insanity. Our nation is our people; and our country is our land. This new approach has rendered us individually abandoned and lost.
Never before has our civilization been in such a horrific decline. The Muslims at the gates of Europe amid the Christendom Wars were far lesser than this, because now we just let the barbarians in willingly!
You live during one of the most important times for our civilization’s continuation. What people like you and I do will determine what happens with the entire multiple millennia history of the West. This is not something to push to the side, or to abandon, or to mistake the importance of.
The cost of losing this fight is the thousands of years of history and heritage that allowed us to have everything that we had. The legacy that made us the leading civilization throughout history. We give it up, for what? Fear? Selfishness in not wanting to take up our sword for others? Because we’re apathetic? Because we’re blackpilled and think it’s already lost? Horrible excuses; all of them.
The benefit of fighting back is being a leading figure, even in a minor role, for setting the framework for another multiple-millennia reign once we correct the ship. The benefit is giving our people that chance to taste victory. And maybe even experiencing it in our own lifetime, God willing.
As I said, high cost. But a much higher benefit.
The Christian realizes this fight is bigger than just the one individual participating. There is a community battle, a national battle, a civilization battle, and even a faith battle—all forms of battles. Do not run from them. We are men. We are called to fight them, not flee from them.
If we lose this battle, we lose everything.
It is truly incredibly to consider, but God has placed us in a time where the cost of being a coward has never been higher than throughout the entire rest of human history. The West and her various national peoples have never been on the brink to the point they are now. We face complete obliteration, yet God put you here for this exact time.
Now is not the time to run. The cost is too high. If we fail here, there will be nothing for our people to return to. We won’t even have the same people to return to, because they will have been lost to history. Now is the time to fight. Stop being a coward. Start making moves, even if they are in the shadows.
God placed you here in this time for a reason, and it sure as hell was not to run away and hide.
The cost of fighting for our people is massive, but the benefit is even higher. Never lose sight of this.
