The tv is not brainwashing your kids, you’re simply not parenting. Take some responsibility. If you can’t sacrifice your time or standard of living to invest in your children, then it is your fault if they are raised by the tv and exposed to the content and values therein. You know what is on tv, the onus is on you to cut it out of your life and your children’s lives. This era has the easiest living in recorded history but people are too narcissistic and greedy to give more of themselves to their own children if it means they themselves might have to live with less comfort or convenience. If you have a family member who is raising a child in an unhealthy manner, or is themselves living harmfully, and you can’t be bothered to take a dignified stand with your family, then you cannot blame anyone other than the person in the mirror. If people do not have responsibility for their children and families, then who does? Who SHOULD? You ought to be embarrassed to blame the tv when you sit idly by in comfort and do nothing so you can “keep the peace.” Everyone feels so brave when they externalize their own shortcomings onto X group, but become quietly passive when it comes to their friends and family members. They prefer to shy away from any meaningful action in their personal lives, in favor of self-victimization.
It only costs your dignity and agency.
Are westerners so cowardly and incapable of meeting any opposition to not even take the risk of addressing an issue in their own family? Is being friendly in your home more important than the long term outcome of not addressing unhealthy behavior? This is why the tendency for tolerance towards those whom you have a close personal connection with leads to far more slippery slopes than any brainwashing ever could. If your sister is raising children in a lesbian relationship and you haven’t even voiced disapproval in an intelligent and calm manner, then don’t blame some abstract bigger picture.
It is common knowledge that those identifying as homosexuals tend to be far more chaotic and their lifestyle is less likely to lead to a fulfilling, life-long pair bond, and are incapable of naturally making a family but they will ignore this and demand their unions to be on-par with traditional marriage, because their acceptance is more important than what is healthy for society or themselves. Their family members love them so they will wear their support of “gay marriage” like a badge of honor, as if the utmost importance in one’s life is public acceptance for every part of the gay family member they care about. The modern person thinks they cannot love someone while disapproving of aspects of them or while seeking to correct them.
Most will do anything possible to ignore their own (or those whom they love’s) shortcomings, when there is nothing more honorable to face. It is very rare yet healthy for people to admit a mistake or explain the bad result of something they did. These confessions serve as warning to future generations. They show that they care more about correcting a societal problem they didn’t catch in time for themselves rather than maintain an illusion of moral perfection. Having agency means you make choices with the info you have, but there is always going to be trial-and-error or unexpected results from unknowns that lead to bad consequences from good intentions. Everyone has to maintain agency to accept this reality. Negating brainwashing as the root of human ills isn’t saying you have no excuse not to be perfect, it’s the first step to long-term health for your line by confronting the imperfections that need to be worked on.
In earlier times, if you enabled family members to act in dangerous or self-destructive ways they would simply die out. These times of easy living and comfort have allowed people to delude themselves into believing that the preservation of their life and bloodline is the responsibility of everyone else but themselves. Race-realism is important, but do not let it become a scapegoat away from the self-correction of your own people. You cannot possibly ensure the survival of your race if you don’t even have the mettle to confront your own siblings, let alone address the self-destructive culture your people have imbibed. This is the problem with the modern era and its large-scale, top-down focus: people forget that strong foundations build healthy homes. There will be no savior from on high; the huge global system itself is only a symptom of the problem… our lack of roots is the actual problem. If you cannot sacrifice for your children and take stances against your own family members, there will be no chance of changing these destructive cycles.
Introspect on how much you have done to help your own before speaking of brainwashing by an opposition. No one is asking for criminal charges, but social shaming or even calling-out is the least you can do. Reality is cruel, immoral, and unforgiving. People that make it past huge obstacles are not the type to expect others to save them or expect the world to be fair. You have to take an active part in saving your line, or you will only expedite its end. There will be no reversal of trends if people are all quiet for the sake of “getting along.”
When people negate their own agency, they are compelled to perpetuate their unhealthy behaviors by making peers either accept them wholesale or place blame onto something intangible like brainwashing in order to escape the uncomfortable necessity of conflict. Slippery slopes come from everyone accepting the destructive behavior of those they love because no one can be bothered with confronting them.
Morality signaling doesn’t stem from brainwashing, it stems from hubris, artificial connections and social attention. Victims’ morality comes from the sloth of those who only seek instant-gratification so they don’t have to work for what is healthy in the long run. The idea that life is supposed to be perfect, that the world is not supposed to be dangerous but instead a utopia, and that the reasons and hardships that make it so everyone isn’t “saved” must, by their reckoning, stem from some form of external oppression or a conspiracy to brainwash people.
Brainwashing is an excuse and counter-brainwashing is a false hope – both place top down power within a destructive system as the key to fixing problems supposedly created by the same top down power. Those who put in effort for their own lines will have prosperity for their posterity. There are no shortcuts that will allow for everyone to be saved, a fantasy which is itself regressive and unnatural. Excuses are the invisible tombstones of all the lost lines in history.
