'A Young Man Starting Out?'
A Man Question from J. on Pen Names

Commenting on A Captive Woman's Gall

So pen names are justified in the case of protecting families.

But would you recommend a young man starting out stay outside the hierarchy, or adopt a pen name and focus on family?

-J

J, I'm flattered you would ask me this.

First, the pen name has practical earning uses. Vox Day basically uses a pen name that is a catchy handle, a branding effort. If you want to write in broad categories, like I do, but not ruin your fiction appeal by writing unpopular opinions, as I have, a publisher would prefer you write under two different names.

J, I am thrilled—and I am sure so is Ishmael and the other old coons that read here on the site—that you are considering a family. Once one has decided on a family, if you want to plant your seed against the degenerate grain of our warped society, than family comes first. Traditional hierarchies incorporated the family. modern hierarchies subvert the family and atomize the person.

A family requires a certain number of dollars to thrive in this world, so stay out of corporate settings. Going into business for yourself is fraught with risk, so consider working in a trade of some kind. Your hierarchal relationships should be religious, athletic, sporting, artistic...

If you just make the money to keep a temporary family and then watch your children dispersed into the atomized world, like I have, you will find yourself standing at the edge of a yawning abyss. I surrendered my sons to the economy, the The God of Things, and will likely not get them back.

I will hopefully be able to rescue my grandson.

Be a guerilla thinker and anonymous writer so long as you are at the mercy of the economy. Your goal should be self-sufficiency like Jack Donovan and the Wolves of Vinland have pioneered, working in arts and trades away from the feminized workplace. Our economy is a cultural negation matrix. If you want to become a superior man and raise whole children treat the economy like kryptonite.

Hi James-

I've been reading your articles on and off for about a year.

Could you elaborate on what you meant by these lines, specifically 'temporary family':

"If you just make the money to keep a temporary family and then watch your children dispersed into the atomized world, like I have, you will find yourself standing at the edge of a yawning abyss. I surrendered my sons to the economy, the The God of Things, and will likely not get them back.

I will hopefully be able to rescue my grandson. "

Are you referring to making just enough vs generation wealth? Or to wealth for wealth sake versus a higher calling? Or something else?

My son is four and I have been blessed since his birth to acheive enough success through entrepreneurism/investing to have left the j.o.b. world behind (seemingly for good, unless something horrible happens). I think often on what his own path might be though, and whether it is possible to stimulate/help him into following that same path as a teenager, so that he can avoid the infinite forms of 'substitute masculinity' and 'substitute sacrality' that permeate our culture today- especially for young people (video games, porn, drugs, degeneracy, self-destruction, victimology, etc). Yet on the other hand the danger of giving too much help rears its head and ending up with him 'r-selected', to use that terminology.

Thank you for the excellent sight and sharing your wisdom.

I like the way you describe the economy, as it is this very sticking point that has me conflicted in college. The way I say it is, in modern America, if a male wants to act as a man would historically/traditionally/righteously act, he must become (at the very least, partially) a criminal and an economic outcast.
