A few facts went a-missing
A man who (wisely) chooses to leave the Western world today for greener pastures in the east has to be conscientious of the likelihood and timeline of their new home inheriting the pernicious and debilitating cultural Marxism and feminism of the west. A man moving to a place like Poland (or even Western Ukraine) today moves with the knowledge that these countries are on the trajectory towards Westernization and will very likely one day become unhealthy and hostile for a man to live and thrive in.
Due to their history and a variety of current cultural factors, places like Poland will still take a number of years to get anywhere near the DEFCOCK levels of America or the UK. One who chooses to live in an “on the trajectory” nation like Poland today does so by making a calculation that it may be, say, 5-10 years behind the levels of feminism in Western Europe and that it is still worth it to enjoy the particular benefits of this society during the decline, while they still remain. It is a temporary reprieve rather than a long-term fix to the problems men face in the west.
- Russia has taken a hard-line stance against GMO foods and refuses to allow Western biotech companies to grow genmod crops on Russian soil;
- The Russian government, under Vladimir Putin, has quite wisely resisted bringing in a huge influx of foreigners as cheap labour to substitute for expensive domestic workers, and insists that any immigrants must give up their native customs and adopt Russian ones;
- Russia flatly refuses to adopt Western levels of indebtedness and attempts to live within its means;
1. In Soviet Russia, Law Breaks You!
Few people who have had a brush with Mr. Putin come off well here. After his re-election to a second term in 2004, the investor Bill Browder told a journalist that “people will forget in six months that Khodorkovsky is still sitting in jail”—and he and others continued to invest in the country. Similarly, John Browne, then CEO of BP, is heard dismissing the Putin regime’s annihilation of Mr. Khodorkovsky’s private oil company Yukos with the comment: “No country has come so far in such a short space of time.” (BP later partnered with Rosneft, the company that stole Yukos.)
For all the drama heaped upon the supposedly "wild" American West, for instance, the reality is that the Sheriffs and marshals who supplied law and order during the heady days of the frontier's expansion were, for the most part, upstanding and virtuous men who created a natural order within the even more natural chaos of the wild. The frontier towns of the American West were, as a general rule, far safer than the big cities back east. And that is part of the reason why the Western borders in the USA expanded as rapidly as they did- because pioneering and enterprising men could go out to frontier towns in Colorado and Texas and Montana and Oregon, and have at least a reasonable level of confidence that the fruits of their labours would not be taken from them at gunpoint by someone else.
2. It's Still All About the Benjamins
This is not a society dedicated to setting men free to become entrepreneurs and capitalists. This is still a heavily statist society that is tied into a very small number of very potent, but highly volatile, sources of funding:
3. Where Are the Babies?
I'd recommend that you people visit the country because you need to see for yourselves what it's really like. This article paints it as some sort of utopia, which it is not. I would guess that after only a few months of living there, most of you pampered millennials would be begging to come home. Guys like Roosh, and perhaps a few of you could make it work, but most of you not. Don't just take my word for it. Give it a try.
What I truly take issue with in this article, and in other articles previously posted on this site, is the glorification of Putin. Yes, he is masculine, but he suppresses opposition and dissenting views with a ruthlessness that would shock many of his western admirers. After the US, the Russian military under Putin is the second most aggressive in the world, occupying four new territories (if you include Syria) since 2008. Why would you hate it when we behave like that but admire Putin for it? Don't be fools.From "Anon":
Date a Russian girl. They make great girlfriends.
Don't marry her though. Thank me later.From "Bucky"
[I]t's possible to find a good russian/ukrainain/belarusian wife. especially if you are alpha and a man's man and/or have lots of $$. still, in most cases i would recommend what anon said. they make great girlfriends. hyperfeminine, savage in the sack (both of the ukrainiki i was with wanted it at least three times a day) and they'll cook and clean for you. but once you marry the typical eastern slavic chick, she's going to want tons of luxury items, expensive vacations, a ridiculous sports car, etc. as a female russian friend of mine put it to me quite bluntly "we do not love without material things." they are not exactly known for their loyalty or fidelity, so if you can't provide her with the stuff she wants, she's probably going to look elsewhere. also expect "what you earn is ours, what i earn is mine" to be her philosophy about money.And from "Anon" again:
Russian women make bad wives for a number of reasons. After 30 there is a major tranformation, where they go from sweet girls to frame-controlling cunts. The looks fade quickly and the personality gets worse with every year. Not to mention a divorce-happy mindset that leads to some of the highest divorce rates in the world.
My advice is to catch them young, in the 18-26 age bracket, and keep them as a short-term girlfriend. That is where they truly shine. They do have that one advantage over Western women, as Western girls make neither good wives NOR girlfriends.
4. Ignoring the East
It's still used to being ruled by autocrats. It still has no patience for the "heresies" of the Catholic Church.
