TBF, that’s mostly on Marx.
Sexualizing children is classic r-strategy. What do you expect from a man who sired a bastard with a maid in his house and refused to raise the thing?
Happy New Year.

Ah, Woodrow Wilson, useful idiot par excellence.
Minor note, mostly rhetorical questions. If you find answers, I’d love to see youtube videos, articles, all sorts on the topic. It’s only gonna get bigger. Regardless of your current politics, I assume you want a final solution.
What were wages like, before the welfare state took off?
How did colleges agree to do the training the capitalist pigs were supposed to do, but less efficiently?
(clue there: Third World)
Why do left and right agree keeping people dependent on them is a good thing?
Are those not voting slaves, to lend a veneer of authority to this arrangement?
The main principle of liberal democracy is that education is free.
That is it.
It used to be in GB, until Labour changed it. Yes, welfare cliff-loving anti-Labour party.
The Tory/Lib Dem coalition merely increased it.
They want to increase it again.
Maybe just reduce the places, like before? Universities want their pound of flesh.
They’ll get it. They’ll also die, in this form.
This gets to a good point – with the Civil War, Americans enslaved themselves.
To buy shit they don’t need.
Student debt is the secret vote-changer.
As we learned from Trump, it pays to promise big.
If you only deliver on part of it, that’s still more than the guy promising small fries.
Boomers destroyed the social contract here to enslave the youth, as you can see on Best Post, we’re not having it. There’s a going Galt element to the whole Gen Y. We’re waiting for big ticket prices to come down, that’s the characteristic behaviour of a Depression.
You want this economy, you like this failing economy, you can keep this economy – and retire in it.
Which is likelier as a generational bailout?
The productive with 50+ voting years or the already dying-off lazy people who refused to save?
Don’t start me on their inability to retrain.
It would be karmic to liquidate Boomer’s Medicaid/Medicare/401ks, the ill-gotten gains. That’s blood money from Gen X, all of Gen Y and now Z.
Who told them they had to do college? Who were the teachers? Who ruined savings rates?
They voted in their gibs, we never consented to that.
We’re slowly learning that fact.
We won’t ever retire, either.
It’ll be high time the old socialists learn the young have power in any economy.
Whoever refuses to retire out of their outmoded title.
“You can’t put a price on an education” yes, because in the age of the net, it’s worthless.
In the UK it could easily fold, the loan company is Limited Liability. It can just disappear.
Into the ether.
The recent “Graduate Tax” is just that. It’s free money promised, real labour taken.
Kinda like being given a free shovel to dig your own grave.
Mis-sold a dream of a healthy capitalist economy. Sue all your teachers, back down to K. EVEN the nice ones. ESPECIALLY the nice ones. A mugger would at least have the decency not to smile and they only shake you down once.
Prices also rise to compete with foreign students’ fees. In an epic move of classism, most ‘domestic’ students are too stupid to realize the anchoring effect applies and the higher ‘overseas’ fees will eventually apply to them.
Plenty of Boomers have invested in funds that bleed students, one way or another. How can you retire off companies they can’t start? Beats me. They still live in the 70s in their heads.
Repayments as a rate is abysmal, something like half depending on who you ask (prolly ~2/3 then, going by British understatement), the UK’s company will tank. The economy won’t grow without fair loans, it bleeds the very youth who should be most prosperous. With a failing economy, there’ll be no jobs to earn sufficient wages (with immigrant competition too, thanks globalization!) to pay them back. Speaking of multicultural parasitism, Muslims get loans free. Yep, no interest, because they claim to believe interest is evil. Hey, me, real Christian, too? I doubt somehow that’ll work for me down the bank. Racists.
We’re living in the cat bounce economy.
All these bubbles are making it boing.
They’re not even making the most money out of this, that offends me. It’d be better to tax a healthy economy than squeeze a dead one. A smart enemy I could respect.
The student loan bubble, brought to you by the ‘educated’, like your moral betters of Hollywood, has made the West a dead parrot.
I’d wager by volume alone, the current student is lower in IQ compared to a century ago, when standards were higher and only the best men and women attended. [IQ section at end]
Schools are never “free”, they intend to bleed you more dry, by boosting your (blood) productivity volume.
It is not charity, they are not a Church.
“The availability of federally guaranteed loans allowed colleges and universities to raise their prices to whatever the market would bear.”
No free-market, no capitalism. That’s hardcore Communism – all in, whatever they want to take.
Universities were respected for centuries when led by the Right. Ever notice how, when the Left gets a hold of something, they turn it to shit then run it into the ground, waiting for the Right to come back in, scrape it up and fix it before they can try to push in again? It starts with clubbing cultures, quality people are put off by them. Why are colleges mixed? Aren’t grades lower that way? If you treat the centre of learning with the disrespect of a brothel, it’ll get that reputation.
America so free, unlike your college degrees.
Why aren’t you given an annual pie chart of who exactly gets your money? % admin, % teachers etc etc.
They’re your employees, right?
And how long do you work, for free, later, to have heard the gospel of your Prof’s opinion?
Rest assured, opinion it surely is.
You’re smart enough to read a textbook solo, right?
All you need are textbooks written by the experts. There wouldn’t be enough of those fill one college, let alone teach a nation. Why are we watering down the quality of academic communication? Busywork jobs?
“Higher education is a wealth transfer from indebted families to professors.”
Yep, you know who to picket next. The people constantly telling you to rebel against other people. Red herring over there! No, over there!
“I was a finance major from a top university, graduated with high honors, got my CMA, etc. No one ever brought up the rather simple concept that total debt has to constantly expand else the old debt + interest can’t be repaid. I didn’t figure that out until 30 years later – in fact I just hadn’t given it any thought. It wasn’t until 2006 that I started looking at what was going on and the implication of what happens if debt starts shrinking hit me. I bring that concept up to people occasionally and almost everyone’s eyes glaze over.”
Yeah, the Bible did warn you that debt is evil. A lot.
You keep owing more and more dead people until you die.
Or your demographics die, either/or.
“I blame parents and kids too naive to realize long term debt like student loans is like a prison sentence.”
Young adults are naive. If you’re old enough to be a grandparent or more, you are not allowed that reason.
In many prisons, you don’t work.
The bankruptcy law can be un-written as an ageist incursion on human rights, if there were a sufficient voting bloc, BernHeads.
Bad laws are struck down all the time.
National debt itself is intergenerational bondage, it wouldn’t hold up under scrutiny. Why should we observe dead people’s IOUs? Are they my blood? Who is We? I didn’t sign shit.
The damning irony is how young people pay twice: first to faceless investors (get the names, start a petition) for the interest, then to national debt as the Government backed their debt.
“Trump should reverse the legislation that prevents students from declaring bankruptcy to shed student loan debts. Student numbers would drop, loans would drop, and those dipshit libtard professors of stupidity and PC would soon be grovelling for handouts. Also the lenders would get their asses kicked for having made stupid loans secured only by the lifetime ownership of the slave, or debtor.”
If he does that before the next election, he would definitely win.
Debtor’s prison is now invisible, you’re still breaking rocks for someone else.
“College is a scam. You can learn just about anything nowadays on the internet, we only need facilities for proper testing as verification of learned skills. [old purpose of a college] College in it’s current form only needs to exist for specific fields such as Medicine and STEM.”
MENSA has methods. MOOCs exist. Why should college employees be full time?
You could also make credit cards hard to get, the way they should be, because that’s another way to get stupid teens hooked on the drug of free money.
Talking of the illusions of opportunity. Here’s where I get shitposty.
This situation reminds me of Louise Redknapp. Bear with me on this story.
Women are cunts in one particular situation – to break up a marriage, a happy marriage. Whether it’s out of envy or because they want the husband (who needs a shoulder to cry on) doesn’t matter. (Men can do this too but it’s a female tactic based on emotional manipulation of insecurities, that might not have existed before). Men just plain gaslight, usually e.g. you’re mad if you can’t see your wife’s getting fat, why don’t you leave her? Proper response: stop looking at my wife (Biblical). Related is the guy who keeps telling you to quit your job dramatically, they are toxic and want to ruin your life for thrills. Like living vicariously but destructively.
Let’s see how this plays out in a real female case.
“LOUISE Redknapp has revealed she quit her marriage to football star Jamie after Daisy Lowe convinced her she was still sexy.”
Chucked an apple of discord into something that was none of her business.
Planted a seed of doubt. Mean Girls tactics, as I mentioned before. Frenemies.
Homewreckers don’t need to sleep with anyone, they can split you up with words. They can be male or female.
“Louise, 42, said a turning point came when Daisy burst into her dressing room and told her: “Oh, my God look at your gorgeous body. You have to wear a sexy dress.”
See, I would’ve told her to fuck off, but most women are weak. She’s way too old to plead dumb.
It’s like the female trolling thing, they never suspect ulterior motives either.
A friend trusts you to handle your own marriage, you aren’t a child. It’s like the ex-spouse who hangs around (as a “friend”) making sure you can never move on or ruining any happiness you do find – men are dumb to that (coughs in a cloud of Musk). Classic female revenge, tactic #1. I can’t live with him, he took so much away from me, I’ll make it so he can’t live without me.
Making you needy isn’t what a healthy friend does.
3 Questions if you suspect someone is doing this to you: Why is this person lovebombing me? What plan are they seducing me into? Has life dragged since they came along?
That burst-in moment was clearly planned. Since the woman is bi, isn’t that peeping?
“The star admitted: “She kept on at me to wear something sexy and by week three, I was in a leotard and tights not feeling self-conscious at all.”
He should be able to sue for alienation of affections. Really.
These laws protected people, including the children, they exist for good reason.
The economy right now is kinda like Vapid Louise’s mindset, with the perfect life and perfect husband and great kids, chucking it all in on the word of a slag. This is why you guard acquaintances to your marriage very carefully on both sides. Protect the family unit from all “well-meaning pals”, who want your free, single time back again. This isn’t going to end well, because it’s based on a total inversion of the truth. The grass isn’t greener, unless it’s also full of shit.
Academics deciding academics are smarter than those pesky people who can sustain themselves.
OK no bias there.
“The average person can do creative work today that they couldn’t do in 1900.”
Yeah that must be why the artwork is so much better… see what I mean?
To say someone who doesn’t want to sit behind a desk is 2SD below mean (and so retarded) is such a huge category mistake. To claim that of someone with more skills than you is a barefaced lie.
“Do you expect these gains to continue through the 21st century?
Isn’t that your job? Whole purpose of life?
“The developing world is a different kettle of fish. They’re taking off in the way we did 100 years ago.”
With our money?
The great replacement, you trained it. Paid for it, too. Will continue to, in national debt.
“Remember that in America and Britain in 1900, the mean IQ was 70.”
I think you’ll find it was 100, we are not the standard. Saying that doesn’t make it so.
If scores should be lowered for criminals, why not everyone else, inc. students?
“Initially, it was very tough going. People had the notion that an IQ score was fixed. It just told you what the person’s IQ was — they don’t realize that it’s a relative score and that sometimes people are being compared with the previous
generation.” How do they not know this? Who else is there?
What do they think normative means?
If kids can get “genius”-label IQ scores, the system is broken. That number tells us nothing now.
I don’t care how Asian they are. Child abuse with the side of habitual caffeine IVs are no excuse.
White toddlers being declared genius also show the system is null and void as-is.
Good move, but ya gotta test real knowledge. No scoring on a bell curve. As we all know, grading on a curve is what Hitler would want.
Otherwise, when you import Asians, you import Asian corruption.
Knowledge is nothing in their culture (instead obedience), intellectual honesty is funny. It’s all about money and social status. Elections are rigged too. Thanks to that lovely import of Asian culture.
Bring back rote, if you care about the children.
Learning is purely based on memory, not a singular performance. Life is not that simple.
“Back then children were treated and expected to act like little adults.”
They are, there’s no such thing as a teenager. Either you have adult rights (majority) or you don’t.
“political scientist James Flynn”
Oh. That explains it. Not a scientist.
Meanwhile, in psychometrics (founded by that evil meanie Sir Galton);
Unlike IQ, you can’t cheat on RT by hiring a tutor (yes, that’s cheating, it’s a resource and the other kids taking the test don’t get one).
IQ is a sound construct. What is claiming to be in colleges is a shitacular circus show.
Just like SAT cheating.
Conquest is the opposite of cooperation, it’s a destroyer of worlds. While I’m planning posts for next year including a LONG economic one, here’s a lovely exchange.
This is why, in mythology, ignoring the woman’s intuition leads to mortal peril.
Without commenting on strangers and single people, here’s what the Bible actually says
“Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,”
Nothing about betrayal in these lines.
“Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.”
Submit also takes on the sexual overtone, implying only the wife should submit, not all women (since it’s the marriage bond which is sacred, so it isn’t so much man/woman as the agreed-upon role of husband/wife).
“…Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged. Bondservants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord.”
Servants are employees.
Again, fathers, not all men.
Appearance not being vanity;
“You should not be fine on the outside only. Some women make their hair nice. They wear gold things. They have fine clothes. But you must be fine in your heart. Have a heart that is gentle and quiet. That will not wear out. And God thinks it is worth very much.
Husbands, also live with your wife the way you know is right.
Respect her because she is a woman.”
The life-giver thing is suddenly very relevant. Women were chosen for that. Men to protect and guide.
Note: bachelors owe nothing to other singles either.
“So stop all the wrong things you do. Stop all the ways you cheat people. Stop fooling people. Stop being jealous. Stop saying wrong things about people.
… You are free people. But do not think, `I am free so I can do wrong things.’ You are God’s servants.”
The idea of any human being a servant to another as free rein for evil is blatantly false.
I could find more but this’ll do.
You’d think the sleigh and the punishing people would give it away.
Why show him aged?
Well, there are plenty of stories about fear turning people’s hair white.
Odin returned from the dead with hidden wisdom, missing an eye.
His hair is a symbol of the knowledge from suffering.
He was the male form of the Crone archetype.
alternate name, The Allfather. Which fits Santa better.
Quick post but we really should establish this fact.
If only to piss off the re-writers of history.
Warning: food for thought.
I was deeply dissatisfied with my final post of the year and figured I’d slapdash together something that is more intellectually stimulating, in a similar vein. It’s only mildly controversial if you’re interested in labels over substance.
“When women act like women, they are accused of being inferior. When women act like human beings, they are accused of behaving like men.”
Does that sound like a healthy civilization with any longevity?
What happened to all the meritocratic arguments to incentivize contributions in capitalist theory?
So we can accept racial differences and class differences and national differences and age differences but sex differences you can prove in a scanner or under a microscope are evil (well if God made…) and we must all be the same (the male standard is also shit) in misery and behavioural equality, the neuroscience be damned? Is that the world you want, putting power trip fantasies aside?
No society with catch 22s will survive, let alone thrive.
There must be two paths: to do, and to not do. There must be clear praise and condemnation and no blurring between those paths. No muddying the waters or blurring it for certain people. Either a thing is right or wrong, unless you are a moral relativist and then you believe in neither, for they’re absolute concepts.
The logic between sexes must be consistent also, it is no more right for a woman to steal than a man (Ten Commandments shout-out). It is no more moral for a man to assault, as they do, mathematically. Naturalistic fallacy is not an excuse, we are all biological and still retain the human quality of impulse control.
At the least, we ought.
We can uplift both sexes in a society without oppressing anyone. The technology exists now, where most of us can probably live in leisure most of the week. If we discussed it and developed it, i.e., cooperated together for mutual betterment! Where did you get the idea oppression has limits? It can’t be historical… Wealth is the hard cap but aside from that, men won’t be spared the same societal factors women would live under.
e.g. Employed singles of either sex still pay for the living of feckless breeders and the spawn without limit.
Misogyny is prominent when rich men wish to evade their intrasexual responsibilities and do so by blaming the women.
You can’t appreciate your fellows? Well, we don’t have a future then. Darwin always wins, darlings. Think of the tribe, we are not atomized, lonely individuals like the 20th century tries to force down our throats.
Where it exists, oppression spreads. Sadists work that way. It’s a betrayal whoever is on the receiving end, these circumstances predate our birth. Nobody living is fully responsible for this system, another red herring.
If we spent a little of our time wasted on the Third World that doesn’t want to change on improving our own lot, imagine what could be achieved. Immigration and multiculturalism are a deliberate ruse to throw off our resources, especially time, into establishing what used to be a norm. We’re stuck playing catch-up and tempers fray, stressed we lash out at the in-group, worsening our collective condition. It is no coincidence we replaced child labour with female. The economy will take its pound of flesh, I suggest we do robots instead of adult people. Society cannot ever again be ignorant of the female potential exemplified around the 1940s but bursting in brief lights long before. Can we afford to turn away our own kin for something minor as not being exactly like the current leaders, who, by the way, are clearly doing such a bang-up job of running things, aren’t they? /s
Do the foolish deserve to fail in any good society? How to deal with their complaints?
Failing men (and women) will complain about it. They’ll say the competition is wrong.
Obviously they will, never before have the dregs had such a loud voice. Nobody else has time to protest that much or write such long blog posts. ~glances at viewer and nods~ The antisocial and envious must be constrained from infecting everyone else like the emotional vampires they are.
They live better than Henry the Bloody Eighth. Prisoners do too. We are the grandiose brats of modern history. To compare farther back is sickening.
Again, there is no need to ban the un-competitive, they simply fall away in a fair contest. It’s obscure to claim a barrier, arbitrarily, in equal opportunity theory, either they misunderstand it or argue in bad faith.
Good for whites, bad for whites, you all say? We have a word for it, prosocial or antisocial. Use the proper terms, the Left will not. Accuracy is our strong suit.
If you only read male philosophers, sorry, but you haven’t read the subject. This isn’t like novels where they’re basically all the same, you get a pass on that for preference. Still, I didn’t skip out on male poets because that would’ve been sexist, you should be fascinated to hear the other side of humanity to which you may never belong. Unless a person really can change their sex? ….Thought not.
Violent crime statistics. MRI studies of psychopathy. Appeal to history (which cannot be demonstrated when called upon, because it never existed in fact, it was a helpful societal myth from around the Enlightenment era). Concepts like Patriarchy are unfalsifiable both ways. However, when I see Husband Selling like they’re subhuman chattel, I might believe in a Matriarchy. If you whine, do it with a smidgen of self-awareness?
Freud Freud Freud Freud Freud Freud Freud and a little bit of Nietzsche.
If you had a loving wife and children, you wouldn’t feel the need to rage at wombs.
Do you want us to try equally hard (effort) or are we allowed to be lazy, pick ONE.
Don’t give us shit for doing as you asked us to…?
That left-side of the bell curve… we all have stories, men don’t really think twice about it though. The sexual prevalence of obnoxious people doesn’t strike them, which is convenient and annoying.
Maybe we need studies.
They don’t even notice the abundance of Men Doing Stupid Shit stories in the newspapers, it’s like a goldfish noticing water. You don’t get to pin a badge on your chest reading Accomplished because you have a Y-chromosome. Arrogance is a male quality in all the myths for a reason, men over-estimate themselves in studies vastly more frequently. Arrogance is not esteem, far from it, nowadays it’s called narcissism. Men need to be the slightly simpler sex, because otherwise they’d have never taken the stupid risks to survive once kicked out of the tribe at the time they hit majority age (otherwise incestuous rape with female relations was a possibility, plus they needed to find a mate by travelling to other local tribes and passing their tests). Shall we bring back that rite of passage, if we want strong men again? You can’t have strength of character without the fatally high stakes that turn boys into men. Courage and stupidity are blurred but while shouting about the former, they literally deny the latter…. which rather suffices to prove our point.
Relevant so included. The mediocre ones are easier to control/rescue from life-risking stupidity that ends up ruining your whole family along with their misplaced sense of arrogance. Other men used to check them in youth but that isn’t happening soon. Average evolved as a sexual preference.
Original form of “the map is not the territory”.
It’s strange they’ll go on about Rand but only the economics and ignore De Beauvoir’s existentialism.
By strange I mean completely intellectually dishonest.
Arguments from bad faith, a certain moral cowardice common in young men at present.
Maybe some slice of laziness where they assume there’s nothing worth reading, but recall, they aren’t misogynists, somehow…
Well, if that prejudiced disdain of anything female isn’t a misogynist, what is?
She pre-empted Dawkin’s Selfish Gene: “Life is occupied in both perpetuating itself and in surpassing itself; if all it does is maintain itself, then living is only not dying.” If you care so much for truth, why not credit? It’s also a sweeping condemnation of hedonism.
If quoting a woman makes you feel insecure, women aren’t the weaker sex.
A little on metrics before I go.
Once the priming effect and other systemic, proven problems in all academic testing are accounted for, women are beginning to score objectively better than men on the blind-marked IQ test.
Stick that in your pipe and smoke it. HBD doesn’t tell you what you like, it tells you what is possible.
The narrow definitions of IQ have never been legitimate, and this goes for verbal, for instance, that women score better on overall. It’s a global metric of all-round functioning as ‘g’ or invalid to be counted as the theoretical construct.
IQ is originally a learning ability test and since learning requires obedient following of instructions, you would expect women to do better on it. Learning is feminine-oriented, as an activity. It isn’t a marker of human superiority the way America has tried to make a genius idolatry a form of hero worship over Hollywood. There are no ‘celebrities for smart people’, scientism is old. The Hollywood people actually have to do something – other than exist?
Paper genius is bullshit. They sell the official piece of paper to ditzy parents.
However, IQ and other metrics correlate to life outcomes, it is useful scientifically.
Identification (with celebrities) should inspire you to act, not live vicariously like a stage Mom but claiming involvement in the glamours of STEM work (anyone can get involved, go clean test tubes).
Wilson: “And a second very big question is, since, women are as intelligent as men, or more so, why did feminism take so long, historically, to get started?”
That one is easy, compulsory schooling about 150 years ago, universities places about 60-80 years ago, in living memory women were forbidden from competing fairly. He goes on to make the classic error of assuming men haven’t changed too. They don’t try at school, porn is a distraction during school years and schools are mixed when evidence says that reduces scores. A blend of exam and coursework is best, not to avoid favour – although this too – but because the more metrics of knowledge, the better the qualification in the market.
And isn’t that the point? These aren’t vanity academics.
Boys were pulled off the farms in the middle ages in the first schools, same boom of intellectual achievement happened then too… since it pre-empts the mythical Enlightenment time period, atheists do not wish to discuss that priests might’ve done something right, to the collective denial of male work ethic and social mobility. The middle class sprang up and families were liberated.
Simone on the decline:
“Whatever the country, capitalist or socialist, man was everywhere crushed by technology, made a stranger to his own work, imprisoned, forced into stupidity. The evil all arose from the fact that he had increased his needs rather than limited them; . . . As long as fresh needs continued to be created, so new frustrations would come into being. When had the decline begun?
The day knowledge was preferred to wisdom and mere usefulness to beauty. . . . Only a moral revolution – not a social or political revolution – only a moral revolution would lead man back to his lost truth.”
You don’t read this stuff, you are cutting off your nose to spite your face.
Remember the original feminists objected to the idea that former slaves would be treated better than them, relatives of the men drafting the laws with demonstrable intellect and accomplishments. It has a history soaked in race realism. We can pick and choose the structures from history that suited us best then and apply now. Nobody is doing this. The scientific approach. Machiavelli would be disappointed.
I hope Odin brings you plenty of shiny Asian-produced crap this year.
It’ll break by February, much like my patience on the topics that are life/death to conceited white people. We are all human and all flawed and all riding in the same, sinking boat.
This is a post I’m proud of.
“Like all dreamers I confuse disenchantment with truth.” Sartre, her lover.
“We decided to laugh. We clearly weren’t having that conversation today.”
You waited, I deliver more as a result.

This blog is one big FU and a record so I can point and say, …told ya.
There’s a lot of information here. It won’t all seem relevant but it is. Oh boy, is it!
This is like when you untangle Christmas lights and it all lines up perfectly.
You wonder how it got that way in the first place. Time and liars.
Gen Y is working through some issues collectively.
Millennial Woes is really hitting it on the head with that name.
Usually, I don’t bother with any video beyond a timecode of 14-17 minutes. That’s assuming I like the topic. Youtube’s algorithms agree with me and those, split into parts, get the most views. This keeps the edge sharp (kek) and the waffle to a minimum. I’m sure there are less fussy birds but this video’s title alone was inspired.
“Anything untrue isn’t there to be lived. People can stand what is true, for they are already enduring it.”
Millennial Woes is unique among bloggers, for his heavy NRx background.
“That’s why I despise midwits. You simply can’t talk to them. They don’t even try to understand you, but instead move to disqualify you as fast as they can.”
I get ahead of myself.
“they can’t process it, it’s too much. It’s kinda like that.”
Theme for this post.
Reaching public goals with personal actions is eternally fraught with obstacles.
“Before you expel the third communist from the Party, let them make their argument. They say that the Party doesn’t have enough resources to incite violent revolution, and the workers don’t want to revolt anyway. Counterfactually modifying the “workers’ actions” node to a revolutionary state is a waste of time, because there’s no link between any modification of your own actions and that node reaching the state you want. Likewise, modifying “government policy” is useless, because the Communists don’t have any clout in the government, so even if you found a wonderful value for that node that would make all workers happy forever, you couldn’t change it.
Instead, she says, oppose labor reform laws. These are already unpopular, and even a small party like the Communists would probably have enough power to get them shot down. When there’s no labor reform, workers will get angrier and angrier, until they gradually revolt and overthrow the system, getting you what you wanted in the first place.”
e.g. to apply it us, minimum wage is rejected, more people pissed off with the Government that outsources to even cheaper labour. Min. wage passes, more unemployment to be replaced with immigrant competition, inflation in the monetary supply pisses everyone off with the Government. See? The majority of politics is circular like this.
The key question here is: which is better for us, ingroup, in the long term? That long term strategy, time preference, is something our opponents cannot match, and should be pushed to fullest advantage.
Shallow solutions are just empty signalling i.e. be nice to the terrorists discussed there, or why can’t everyone get along? concern trolls. The Look at me, I’m vegan people. Conversely, we must be the opposite, but signal the substance superficially.
Like attracts like and attracting the right sort of people is imperative.
“This may seem trite, but I can attest that a big success factor in life is just being calm enough to do the obvious when it really matters.”
This should make for uncomfortable reading.
“So to get the sort of thought leaders that we want, we tolerate and even encourage qualified leaders to take credit for
thoughts developed by others. We let the charismatic people we prefer as leaders pretend to have developed the ideas they talk about.”
Oh, look. The Elon Musk method. Even the same damn suit, subtle as shit.
I’m sure there could be an Alt Right parody of this. Maybe involving one of Roosh’s blonde blow-up dolls.
As for Elon the tech nerd’s replacement hard-on, I was recently proven right.
I mention this for new readers who don’t get my track record. I rarely repeat myself.
Another sacrifice? Fine. Here’s something nobody else has picked up on yet.
I sat on this for literally a year and none of the midwits twigged.
What does Trump do? https://www.thoughtco.com/what-is-anti-rhetoric-1688991
He’s powerless against a public figure who says nothing, because there’s nothing to bully back at.
He’s 100% passive reaction. He’d be weak as a kitten if the Left just STFU for years.
Online, as in life, it’s best to avoid anyone who screams stereotype. There’s something wrong there.
Off we pop to more relevant-seeming breakdown.
“They’re still doing the bidding of those who clearly do want to get rid of the women.” MW
Kinda like a cuckoo bird and its eggs, if only we had a name for it, right?
There were a few comments posted about the economy and that’s an interesting development. You can’t have a healthy birthrate in a dead economy. Maybe the solution is better capitalism? I have no idea how that would work. Demographics is almost the exact same thing as the economy, after all. This is shaping up to look r/K but I warned you how r-types with a sniff for change would try to tradlarp, the paper Ks, self-aware r-types. Curiously, perhaps the reason they resent women so is because they know the protection they seek from other men (Muh Brotherhood types) would preferentially go to us?
“Youtube is its own thing, it is that important. It’s central to our success.” MW
Ed-you-kay-shun. As I said in Part One.
It’s depressing how many resources Gen Z have when we had nothing.
“There was no levity.” He clearly wasn’t reading me….
“There were no women around, of course.” MW
*cry me a river playing*
*stares in calendar* openly, is the word required there
I’m listed in places. You have heard of my other work, maybe some abandoned blogs.
Who do you think made that rule of the internet?
There are no girls…? Who would make that a rule?
“There was lots of frustration, despair and loneliness.” and there isn’t more now?
Tara as the first? Okay, if you want, sugarlumps.
“And then other women arrived, over the last two years.”
This narrative is way too neat, but fine. I’ll let these slide rather than out anyone.
Wait, he means Youtube channel women only. Yes, that makes sense now.
The edges of reality are a little more frayed. Sweet blog subtitle for when I up and move again.
“sharing knowledge, spreading ideas” cooperation?
Women’s channels are “more light, upbeat” that’s feminine. That’s what we need, a civic balance of energies rather than twenty men blackpilling us all to smithereens.
Social referencing is literally how women work… wasn’t he gay? Shouldn’t he know this? And why do we reference? Why do women obsess over gay men? They’re seen as classy. They’re polite and cultured. Woes’ politeness is his best weapon, before his intelligence. That doesn’t hurt.
Southern raising awareness while a journalist doesn’t speak too much for her character, a poor example.
Explaining how you gave women free advice doesn’t sound as good as I think he thinks it did.
Please get to a point. Any.
“these women have made sacrifices” true but like you, they do get paid for it
I mean, some of us don’t? I can leave any time I like. This was part of the plan for those of us who can think with long-range sniper planning. I chose the written medium because it’s hard to trace. You can get the ideas out there without showing your face/tits. It is possible.
It’s less narcissistic though, and he misses that, Youtube is the medium of narcissists. So far he’s being a dramatic Millennial about this. Yes, harassment is more dangerous IRL for women. Good point. And so is being a woman, period? Like, which sex is likelier to get stalked? Raped? Abused in a relationship?
You’re not special for talking into a camera on Youtube, sorry?
Not one of those women has contributed anything to white culture.
Neither have the men. Spouting the obvious from 50 years ago doesn’t count.
Please get to a good point.
MGTOWs really don’t like traditional people, women just make easy targets.
“They’re guilt tripped, shamed” why are you listening to genetic suicides?
Their opinion dies with them. You should stop smoking because that’s clearly in your best interest. Kids? Well, that’s for the individual to decide, if it’s even an option. If anyone should pressure them, it’s their own family, nobody else. Women already get it in the neck from that one aunt who wants the fun part, to coo over a baby then hand it over for a change. Note how the MGTOW complain they ‘can’t find a traditional woman’ but then flame that very breed? Hmm. I think many of society’s problems were caused by breeding out of wedlock, Stefan is right that if you could choose one thing to be born with, it’s parents who are together, but they also ask the woman to get married. How? I covered before how in Southern’s case, that doesn’t select for the sanest women:
“Or is it that they won’t listen to a woman until she rushes a man, ANY man with a functioning pee-pee, to the altar, because clearly such a woman would be a good person, a balanced person and have her head screwed on straight?”
However, why aren’t we also holding men to this standard? And a standard it is. Men make the offer of marriage so conceivably, if it’s so easy to find someone, they can do it better and it falls to them.
How can a woman force a man into that? Even the Church says not everyone has to marry. The Bible says chastity is a virtue. Marriage is Not to be entered into lightly?
The manosphere’s sole value to men was self-improvement but it stopped short of anything new and cultural. They fear the duties of masculinity a la Pajama Boy, neither will marry or breed or produce anything of merit. Death will wash over them and who will notice? The satire of Fight Club has become Drama Club and the cancer has spread to the AR.
The ones who call us “precious white whores” https://disenchantedscholar.wordpress.com/2016/02/19/some-manospherians-throw-rattle-from-pram-the-alt-right-is-run-by-cucks-now/
How little must they think of the men if they think that of white women?
I do wonder how much that nose job cost though. He hates white people but wants to look like us? What?
I’d forgotten about all the narcissism. ~facepalm~ HOW.
The Actually, I’m Aryan line, fellow white, is actually one Roosh was pushing with regard to himself. I fear he won’t debate you on the value of Europe (not that he has a valid opinion as outgroup) because you’re known for Rotherham videos and the sex tourism stuff Roosh sells is basically advocating rape of white girls. Roosh is quoted as thinking of white women as all whores. His whores, for the taking..
Signalling trad won’t entitle you to a nubile waifu after you burned out on degeneracy, the Alt Right isn’t a human fucking coupon company. You failed, you didn’t become the type of men those women seek and pointing to your fellow r-selected sluts changes nothing. There are plenty of happy married people.
There were some very wordy? comments that I shan’t bore you with, but here’s a snippet of one that might’ve been onto something.
“It’s the hypocrisy women keep pointing out… men put their fingers in their ears and act like the totally insufferable
born-again virgin types… they’re just entitled brats… who want to larp the patriarch”. “To care about (sad men in comment sections) is pathetic… Where are the leaders? Who are we meant to follow? …And do what exactly? Men have done sweet FA… (they don’t deserve respect, didn’t earn it) and blame us for failing at being men. Nah, that’s not on us.”
Is there such a thing as moral hypocrisy? Well, does an ex-sinner have any moral authority, to use the proper term, to order around people who have never committed those sins?
Logically, no. By postmodernism, Boomer logic of “Experience”, yes, because they claim to repent. Experience of degeneracy pollutes your thinking, the moral reasoning is totally impaired barring few exceptions that wouldn’t want to lead anyway.
Doing anything for years isn’t a “mistake”, that’s single mother logic, where did the hypoagency come from, males?
I don’t trust that. Deflecting attention to the outgroup is something r-types excel at, do they seriously think all women in the world are morally like USA college skanks? And these men usually claim to be well-travelled? I can think of plenty of good women, the irony is they’d all avoid those men, so yeah, they probably never met if the ladies could help it…
What is the positive plan? What is the action? And why do the Useless ex-sinner “Ideas Guys” think they’re exempt from doing it? e.g. marrying or at least not being nomadic (classic r). There isn’t a single paragon among them and actual, real Patriarchs don’t seem interested in leading the degenerate men. Quelle surprise? They’re just circlejerking in the comments section about who needs female attention less (get a room). The ones who constantly go on about Da Wimminz are the needy crybabies. I have more in common with a European man than I do a woman from Timbuktu and that’s a fact. They aren’t redpill anythings to deny that, I doubt how many of them are really European?
It is true that, to paraphrase, “women will never follow a man they don’t trust”. Women are slower to love than men for that reason, in studies. If men are hopelessly immoral, they can’t complain when women respond to that in kind.
I feel like there’s suddenly all these male feminist types that expect if they throw out the correct signals, they’re entitled to the group’s women…. fucking r-scum.
And when that fails, as negging always does with K-women, they begin to criticize imaginary things (slander, those bitchy ‘response videos’ are self-promotion). Sorry, are you a bitter old crone type? How is more pajama boy histrionics the epitome of alpha male, again? SJW tactics, they must be more like SJWs than us.
Bonfire of the Muh Dicks when?
There’s a conversational storm in a teacup, everything’s going around in circles and certain people profit off the drama. The same topics on a loop for years with no progress in thought or direction. How is that good?
There’s a reason Yank means to steal in English.
There really is too much bullshit to sift through and make any sense…
Take this with a mine of salt. I’m missing a lot out because books could be written. Terrible books nobody should ever read or care about, e-celebs are as bad as the Hollywood set, certainly no more degenerate.
The witch hunts are interesting. Who do you think profits?
Women as communicators? Groundbreaking. Really glad it took 18 minutes to get to this point.
Really regretting saying I’d make a post on all this. If this is all about individual women, I do not care and don’t know why I should feel accountable for the sins of others. Where’s the bread for this sin eater?
“hearing it from a woman, it sweetens the red pill” *glances at blog title*
K ya got me there.
Why would women want to lead men who hate them? I mean really.
“That – Women have no place in politics.” Do we have a place in tax revenue?
And imagine if all the cleaners, cooks and mothers left it to the men?
Imagine if deadbeat baby daddies had to raise their own bastards?
Child Support goes to the parent holding the baby. Why are women left?
“This isn’t politics, this is culture.” Again, camera diaries add nothing to white people.
Women busy with babies can’t make Youtube videos. That’s why.
More anecdotes. Exactly what this video needs. I don’t care much about the daily operations of my own uterus, so why is the supposed situation of these women relevant? Whether they have children or not doesn’t change this supposed signal boost. I’m actually rather pissed at that point, like it’s a rationale?
baby rabies = superior woman?
Eager breeders are crazy, male or female. Staying single isn’t a sin. In fact, the Bible describes a simple, holy life as heavenly in its virtues. Why must everyone be shacked up, SOMEHOW, there’s more proof for socialism. At least that actually occurred at points in history.
Woes himself has no kids and doesn’t seem to want any. And?
Do I listen to him any less? Or is it a personal decision based on the greatest investment a person, especially female, can have? Where did all these Americans suddenly get the idea they can shame people for living in sin? What if they’re not living in sin? Having a boyfriend (or gf) is plenty degenerate. That isn’t traditional at all. To my knowledge, for comparison, MW is single. Isn’t that less degenerate than sleeping with someone out of marriage?
Yet, girlfriends are held up as noble by these guys, like if they put out, they must be a good person. Nah, still a tart. A single-male slapper, but a slapper nonetheless. Serial monogamists are among the worst people you will ever encounter. It’s a predictor of r-traits, in my experience and others’.
Why is NRx doing fine, still quietly alive? Logic, consistency, moral authority and statistics. Polite, open-minded people who eschewed trolls from putting them off progress. The average IQ is certainly higher.
What does AR lack, at present? Basic data for its common rhetoric. First off???
Is a childless woman useless to the world? Where’s the proof that women are entirely baby-making machines? Is the sole purpose of men to die on a battlefield too, while we’re talking trendy archaic-sounding bollocks? Who are these women marrying? If some men should Man Up, why not all? Isn’t this pressure societal?
Why are bachelors good and spinsters evil, when men control marriage?
Anglin knows nothing of European history, clearly. Politics is as much female as male. Certain courtesans made more history than Kings. Plenty of spies were women.
It’s odd the contrarians object to other contrarians. Almost like they don’t want the signalling value depressed by more normies. Since, obviously, a woman can’t have her own best genetic interest at heart. Compassion in women? Where’s the data! /s
I figured from the intro about the future this was leading somewhere.
Must I do everything myself? The future is what you make it.
These people are useless. All of them. To the wider world, quite useless.
I’m just thinking of all the real-world bullshit I’ve been through to help people like this, and wondering if I’d undo it. I can’t say I wouldn’t undo some of it… I still have time, I’m thinking about it.
I’d hate to be an e-celeb but certain people seem to need it. What else would they have? What incentive is there to fix the problem if they’re paid to talk about it?
What would they be contributing in their ideal society? What does it even look like? Have they planned moves from now to That? These discussions don’t happen, because they are useless. e.g. moving to expose the Pill as unsafe and get it banned would help birth rates. Ah, but then men would have to accept sex isn’t free like the 60s promised.
29m I hate to say it but so far I’ve only heard white knighting. 99%.
It’s bad when a woman notices and gets frustrated.
Some good points but overall, STFU and get to the points that aren’t gossip. It’s like listening to a vapid woman, in part. So-and-so said this, but so-and-so did that!
On another note, why are high IQ and low IQ people being lumped in together based on sex. Why are low IQ women being encouraged to breed? And both sexes are equal in society in the sense their input is valid and necessary…
Fuck I really want to delete this, I don’t care any more. Midwits don’t listen.
They didn’t listen years ago, they won’t listen now. I’m checking out mentally.
They’re completely missing the points.
Failing to distinguish equal opportunities, which most of them would advocate, to modern feminism, the non sequiturs that result from these aspersions are nauseating. Did men not sow discord and drama with their internet boyfriends in acts of valiant self-promotion? Remove branch from thine own eye, fellows.
Alt Right men aren’t against race mixing, look at all the cucking for Asians they do.
Consider the optics of THAT.
Their line won’t survive the century so maybe breeding is for losers atm.
While times are good, you’ll be burdened as they get worse.
Nobody mentions the elephant in the room that is – whites can’t possibly breed enough to outpace everyone else within the century. I guess maths isn’t their strong suit or they’re just blaming Da (White) Wimminz.
Yeah, presently-young white women are the reason Boomers aborted so much, Gen X too, and also why young men won’t marry and settle down because clubbing is apparently a culture?
“White women without bfs and husbands deserve rape” one comment reads, and that’s the tone of the thread because the truth makes liars reee.
Okay, that’s it, I’m out. Until the genetic suicides get down off the high horse I’m not helping that.
It continues “These women should be raped by iron rods and broom handles. It’s not for our pleasure, but for their
When are we taxing the bachelors like Ancient Sparta? How about flogging the weak men into some character? Until they bleed, scar or should we go the whole hog and remove chunks of flesh or layers of skin?
username Bill provides a polite reply “we can’t roll it back to the 1950s, never mind the 18th century.”
Yeah, males like that would’ve been hanged and the world wouldn’t mourn.
The snake is outta the can. Putting it back in requires dialing back the Sexual Revolution. Not a word. No, you don’t get to blame women, men are getting plenty of sex but the world has fewer European babies. That’s the problem.
The feminists are being proven correct on one point, which irks me: there are men jealous of the progress women have made, in the economy and in being self-reliant. The ones who fail at those things most are vicious about it. To say women don’t get abused for existing then go on to do it is perplexing from people who claim to value morality and reason. You don’t need to ban women from something they’d fail at anyway.
The sex with higher sexual disgust baked in isn’t the source of degeneracy but the same weak men gripe that nobody wants to take responsibility…. huh.
Then there are the people with delusions of Machiavelli, comment: “Phase one: trolling the cuck / trolling the slut out of you is nearing completion.”
I’m so glad I don’t share a sex with this. Absolutely relieved.
Remember: without male sluts, there’d be no demand for female ones. I guess logic hurts? That awkward moment MGTOW is smarter than you. They cut off the demand for degeneracy, the celibate ones.
The upside of all this is the genuine men who want a future have seen the psychopathic mask slip from these guys. They can’t say, “well, it’s never happened to me and I haven’t seen it, so it can’t be real.”
You could just make a female account and post your exact same opinions with no change?
I knew I had a post about that but God knows where it is.
comment from a random part of the internet about the decline/collapse
“There will have been nothing else in history to compare it to. Isn’t it great to be alive to watch our overlords take us into the history books?”
Millennials are especially fucked. The order of fine to fucked goes: generational, racial, class, sexual, from most important to least e.g. any Boomer is better off than the other groups, but a rich black man will do better off the system than a poor person of either sex.
Generational is due to economic factors. Brief detour because this is more interesting than the superficial idea that a woman is valuable if she pumps out babies. What is this, Japan?
Do they even know Japanese people aren’t one race? Did they bother to look it up?
Where’s the quality? Most young people aren’t ready to be parents or would be crappy ones. I can’t even. By that logic, Shantelle from the ghetto with 8 kids is more valuable to society than me. Where is r/K in this, you fools. A white society wouldn’t necessarily survive, let alone thrive. Where is your basic data?
Americans lecturing Europeans when they won’t move back, also, ahem, problematic.
Then there’s the delusion of saving people already bleeding you dry via the government.
This isn’t reciprocal. Those people could help you, they don’t. A survival level of selfish doesn’t make you evil.
There are too many people. Avoid those places and people if you want to survive. Humans can stampede one another like elephants to acquire resources, watch Black Friday footage.
After the EU comes down, the SCO must follow.
The bond of Russia and China must be shredded.
And what about the manifest destiny of America?
When China goes down, where will all of them wanna move?
They want to replace us here, it’s been their plan all along. r-types must migrate or reduce their own breeding. Abolishing one-child law was the canary here.
That’s a billion people, from one nation of a whole populous continent (more so than maligned Africa) more than all of the global white population combined. That’s a hatefact for you.
Liberalism is based on eternal control of ourselves.
That is a lie. It’s downhill in human progress from here. The Victorians maxed out on RT compared to us, reaction time being the best metric used as a correlate for IQ, which cannot be faked. Flynn was all about nutrition, not schools. It’s a one-time boost, this is our normalcy bias. Remember, America let in Africans long before it would allow the Chinese.
Did you never consider there might be a reason?
“But it faces a massive predicament: It’s running out of resources.”
Certain populations are like fleas, but the PC term is parasite tourism or economic migration. The basic principles remain.
They move wherever you are foolish enough to allow them to move in, bringing problems wherever they go.
MW used to be this smart but in the past couple of years I don’t know where he bought into the creepy nationalist fertility cult. I think Alternative Right’s blogspot also posted about it and I linked so I won’t repeat.
Yep, thought so. That node is dead.
Europe has plenty of people, we’re at sustainable population levels. The rest of the world needs to stop.
The men whining need to stop expecting someone else’s child will fund their retirement. No, party is over, go home. You were born too late to cash those chips. Look at the infrastructure, we can’t do anything but contract the population to simply maintain standard of living, logically. Millennials are correcting the Baby Boom, since we can’t afford to breed much it’s hardly a choice but a useful one for society. Single people are funding useless eaters, nix that and rates would improve.
The people complaining about special snowflakes act like every white baby is Mozart and get triggered when it’s pointed out they might be intellectually dishonest and using that identity as an excuse not to forge a more unique one (identification is a defense mechanism, meant to be followed by moratorium). The totally reactive approach makes you quite useless in a debate, you have very little to prove that isn’t easy to find out if you know where to look. By going on and on about lefty dramu, you don’t stand for much that’s new because you’re spending so much time standing against total idiots and wasting your time trying to change them. People need exposure to the truth, not more mockery of lies. It pollutes the discourse because by blending too much you make it hard to know when you’re serious. Your channel originally had a lot more philosophical and scientific bent, but the bulk of videos lately appear to be internet spats most people do not care about or random chit chat. If you did useful book reviews or theory assessments like Molyneux did with r/K, that education would get out there.
Back to the problems. Who profits from the Migrant Crisis?
Red herrings aren’t nearly effective as black ones.
“in China we can say they have to take in the refugees, but that is easier said than done.”
The best comment was buried.
A toast to you, Good Sir. More valuable than the video, actually.
Why the Victorians sharing the technology of the Industrial Revolution was a bad idea.
“But this initial boost phase of profits gushing from automation is short-lived; as the tools of automation are themselves commoditized and become available to anyone on the planet with some capital and ambition, lower cost automated competitors come to market, destroying the pricing power of the first adopter.
Once an enterprise is competing only with other automated enterprises, profits fall to near-zero as lower cost competitors emerge. Competitive advantages are small once a field has been commoditized/globalized, and there is little pricing power left except for brands that establish some cache people will pay extra to have and hold.”
We know Africa won’t take over the world any time soon, their national IQs tank too low.
Africa bought out by Asia will. Where do you think they wanna dump their surplus millions in population, with this literal bridge to Europe? At least the Africans are polite enough to risk drowning.
It isn’t like they could force us with a wa-
Some nukes are de-activated on a schedule. Meaning? If the grid goes down, the economy crashes or government is facing civil war, various countries will release nuclear weapons without a target or intent, which would set off others.

Here’s 150 tons of nuclear smoke. http://www.nucleardarkness.org/warconsequences/hundredfiftytonessmoke/
“In the absence of warming sunlight, surface temperatures on Earth become as cold or colder than they were 18,000 years ago at the height of the last Ice Age.
Already stressed land and marine ecosystems would collapse.
Unable to grow food, most humans would starve to death.
A mass extinction event would occur, similar to what happened 65 million years ago, when the dinosaurs were wiped out following a large asteroid impact with Earth (70% of species became extinct, including all animals greater than 25 kilograms in weight).
Even humans living in shelters equipped with many years worth of food, water, energy, and medical supplies would probably not survive in the hostile post-war environment.”
Sleep well, white man.
This isn’t just our extinction. We take everyone with us if you look at the facts. Who feeds the Third World? I did posts on foreign aid, dammit, the data is out there.
from a post about race replacement immigration to Europe:
The SHTF chapter of Enjoy the Decline might be useful to some of you.

For the more spiritually-inclined
There’s a difference between seeing things and knowing what to make of them.
What to do, what to do?
“without consequences, so long as he’s not seen to be doing so.”
There’s a lesson in that.
Who already does this? Who owns a brothel he doesn’t use? Look at what a person has and what they use, what they claim.
There’s a unique gap? There must be a reason.

It’s Dexter in digits but I’ll leave you with this quote.
“They won’t win. Because one good thing came out of all of this. They showed themselves. The top 1% of the 1%, the ones in control, the ones who play god without permission. And now I’m gonna take them down. All of them.”
Welcome to the true purpose of the Alt Right this entire time.
We didn’t wanna ruin the surprise. Your awakening is redundant when you do nothing.
I relinquish all support to the self-destructive until further notice. International cooperation was a silly idea anyway. I’m not tagging this post because honestly, I hate it. I hate being Cassandra and pointing things out years before they come to pass for people who will never listen to me. Unless they’re blaming me.
If you’re waiting for the other half of the video breakdown it isn’t going to happen.
Not much new happened.
Southern is Jewish, not white. The Holocaust tweet has done the rounds.
Yes, the men are hypocrites, but where are the K-selected men?
Not making Youtube videos, apparently. Skip to the second half for anything approaching a broader discussion. 46m yes it’s about corrupting people, not just women, but also undoing it? There’s not much to add about pointing out what I’ve been doing for, again, years.
54m finally some reasons.
I had expected from what I heard before in places that this was going to be productive discussion. Again, a drama and gossip bitchfest, mostly. Fantastic. This has thoroughly depressed me, on hols and previously in a kite-like mood. He doesn’t get it, none of them will. Go back to NRx, Woes. You can be of use when you go back to discussing things, instead of the small minds people blogger you’ve become.
The quality level on this post is so poor I’m putting a warning at the top.
The standards will come in whether you like it or not.
You can get with the times and people like me or be left behind.
It’s really that simple.
Only the useless have to fear a world of standards and decency. K-shift beckons.
Less sure how we’ll get there exactly, now.
Merry Xmas and a Happy New One.
5 min. Male designer speaks.
There’s a line, isn’t there? Think how much we spend on clothing today. Think how little is any good. If anything, it ought to be better. In menswear you see a lot of circulation, for instance, the gilet is a doublet.
A related discussion in vintage or re-enactment circles is the glamour/beauty debate.
Beauty is natural but human beauty never has been. Primitive tribes had shell necklaces and the torc or crown were made alongside spears. This is something we are so immersed in we cannot see it, there is a hierarchy of style and the modernist love of minimalism (it’s been almost a century now! come on!) came from an American urge to distance themselves from Europe and carve out what is ironically a more rugged, romantic* standard.
Boomers were defined by the hippy look, androgyny that mimicked the political shift.
People wore wigs in most centuries for decency reasons, like hats, they wore heels and girdles, eyeliner was medicinal. Male watches, wristwatches, were originally ladies’ bracelets. To this day, the face is too large for the male wrist, they go overboard to make it look manly with a chunky appearance. If humans put effort in, and since wearing clothing is legally required, they naturally want to express who they are and where they come from and that art form shouldn’t be dismissed. The utility belt began as female, with its height in the chatelaine. Men would only have things strapped to a military uniform from the shoulders, where their muscles could take the weight. Heavy belts help women, whose strongest muscles are our thighs.
The 1950s makeup aesthetic was heavily painted, more than some looks now. There was a full face of foundation and a lot of powder. These days, with HD cameras, it would look cheap as Hell.
Men forgoing makeup is modernist, inspired by the Romantic* philosophers because it was au naturelle.
To this day, many of you don’t know where this sudden squee over the working class came from.
Yes, it was totally your idea… like the American eagle that isn’t Napoleonic that isn’t Roman…. calling it, Empire = eagles. Sciencey.
The Romantic poets had a fetish about the countryside and farmers, this continued on into Vincent’s art but began around the 17th century with still life and paintings of farmers and cooks. The simple life to contrast the urban “Enlightenment”. Industrialization got the Romantics down, they thought machines were replacing men and making them more effete, dependent. Actually, how many men can stitch a button?
There’s a physical component to gendered presentation, the scale of masculine to feminine.
Modern looks are androgynous, even for men. Denim is andro, cotton, andro, jeans, andro, boots, andro, ties, andro, scarves, andro, t-shirts, andro, it’s all andro-andro-andro-andro!
Look around and see for yourself.
Women aren’t dressed like men, men are dressing more like women. Do you need a loose fit of maternity wear? Think back to 1980s suits to now, picture the silhouette. Modern men cover up way too much skin, historically. Why? Well, they don’t fight, there’s no body heat being lost. Sports replaced wars. The wealthy areas tend to be cold or polluted, so we cover up. Powerful men are in vogue, fewer dandies and more fat old men, who tend to cover up.
Long coats are Byronic, like long sleeves. Cravat and tie are basically the same thing in French. Grooming became more important, they didn’t just drop a standard so telling women to forgo makeup would be like telling men exactly which hairstyle to wear regardless of face shape and job and climate and whether or not they were allowed a beard, absurd in any time period. Makeup, like hair style is also cultural. You can see comparisons on Youtube of say, French and American makeup. Men couldn’t have beards in the upper classes until soap and good hygiene became the norm. There were reasons for the aristocratic fashions and all grooming is good grooming, with the exception of anal bleaching.
That would be masochism.
Suits, for instance, change how a man walks. Other men don’t notice, we do.
If a man can’t buy a good pair of shoes, do we trust him?
The effect on manners and a sense of personal dignity cannot be under-estimated.
As one man I know put it, he recently got into vintage and said “I know now that I felt like shit because I looked like it.” People responded to that insecurity signal. Depression is linked with unemployment but also sloppy dressers.
Why is there an envy of the stylish? They look happy. We imagine them contented.
It’s different to pin what caused what and I’m not a man so your feels aren’t my beeswax.
When we picture a utopia, what do we spotlight? What they wear. Instinctively, you care. Cosplay is all about the style and the feel of an era, what it represents. Living history, I’ve heard it called, like recipes and music.
They build up on skills and those traditions are rooted in history, in a country and time.

A critical aspect of femininity is presentation and expression.
It isn’t limited to women, however, men gain a collective identity more.
It affects how you carry and identify yourself. Think military uniforms.
This concept was floated in NRx years ago but I figured I’d bring it up again.

There’s a distinct pride element, whether it’s class, sex, nation, occasion (we still dress up for weddings..) and think how many aspects of appearance are banned or frowned upon (up to the English flag, because it might offend).
SJWs themselves cannot resist the siren song of a uniform but the blending is childish, Monroe catseye glasses with a Betty fringe and Audrey shirts, they signal an ignorance of feminine style. It’s pure fashion and poorly crafted as a look. There is no style.
How many people dress like hoodrats and chavs that wouldn’t dream of it ten years ago? Thanks to Anonymous making it middle class rebellion.
How did wearing Mom Jeans become Tech Guru status? Apple smartphones.
Why don’t men wear hats and spats and carry canes?
Where did all the petticoats go?
These sound superficial but the fabrics follow the philosophies. Designers respond to demand.
We dress cheaply because clothing is made cheaply. That makes us cheap people. History will view us as such. Trends set in LA temperatures look ridiculous in Europe. I said it.
Please can men discuss this because obviously I don’t want to tell you what to wear but women notice. We note the expression and effort, why else do you think the gay best friend thing came about?
This isn’t superficial, aesthetics is critical. It’s the ultimate emotional appeal (looking good) and, no offense, but the signal of sophistication and elegance is one few people could ever make. Natural beauty is genetic but style is a level playing field. The dress-up montages in film and anime are a token marker of stepping into a social role (think Iron Man suiting up) and mature responsibilities.
I’ve noticed one particular thing I want to point out before I set this festive post on a timer: PC culture has risen as appearance has gotten more sloppy. With weak signals from look, the verbal mannerly side has gone into overdrive.
