Self-reliant people more satisfied in life

Shocker.

Meaning is personal to each of us. However, a new study published June 15 in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science suggests that some people might be better at finding that meaning than others — and the difference may come down to politics.

According to the study, which compiled survey results from more than 50,000 participants in 16 countries, people who identified as political conservatives were more likely to find meaning and satisfaction in their lives than liberals were.

Political conservatives tend to be happier than liberals, a finding that has been labeled the ‘happiness gap’ in media reporting,” a team of psychologists from the University of Southern California (USC) wrote in the new paper. “One conservative commentator even described it as ‘niftily self-reinforcing; it depresses liberals.'”

 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

No shit, someone alert Buckingham Palace.

SCIENCE.

 

Turns out, money can buy happiness.

 

You think Elon Musk launders his own underwear?

They say you all have the same number of hours in a day.

Bull-SHIT.

I’ve met these people who think their shit doesn’t stink.

These self help gurus don’t clean their own shithouse.

Yet they deflect and shame you like you’re lazy. Four Hour Workweek from Mr Expensive Tuition.

One of the most stressful life events, moving, can be ‘outsourced’!

Why do you think they love immigrants so much?

Illegal wages – slave labour.

Nobody points out blatant classism.

Show me one working class politician.

 

Globalization exists so they can abuse foreigners across borders because abusing locals is more legally challenging.

 

Cinderella is literally about a woman marrying out of the need to do housework.

That’s the fairytale.

That’s the magical thing.

 

Give conservative women a housekeeper, dammit!

It’s cheaper than a divorce!

Buying Marital Bliss: Time-Saving Purchases Promote Relationship Satisfaction

https://www.hbs.edu/faculty/Pages/item.aspx?num=53939

If it turns your head, “help” is why rich women have more energy for sex.

It isn’t the fucking spirulina smoothies.*

Most men don’t do manual labour anymore, most women still do. Studies only look at the middle class for this stuff.

They don’t get it. The woman on her feet for at least seven hours has it harder than the social-media browsing office worker. Who cleans the cleaner’s house? Why do women claim they can’t afford more children? When are men “run off their feet”? Why do women take longer to save for retirement while men work over-time, where are they, what are they doing in those prime dinnertime hours? Whose work uniform of clothing, haircare and make-up is more expensive? Whose ‘trims’ cost far more despite literally removing less hair per trip? Add up what women do against what they’re expected to do. It isn’t lazy.

Disagreements about chores are a primary source of relationship conflict: both men and women become frustrated working a “second shift” at home. Using data from nine studies of cohabitating working adults in committed relationships (N = 4,316), we provide the first empirical evidence that couples who make time-saving purchases in a typical month report greater relationship satisfaction. We also document why and when buying time promotes relationship satisfaction: Time saving purchases enable couples to spend more quality time together, protect couples from conflict, and are most likely to promote relationship satisfaction when couples are faced with controllable (vs. uncontrollable) stressors. These findings suggest a relatively simple solution to a critical source of marital conflict: spend money to buy time.

The Industrial Revolution caused a lot of divorces.

Suddenly, the sexes worked apart.

Teenagers used to work in place of immigrants but state schools refuse to let them go below the age of eighteen now. Also their minimum wage is lower, which is slavery. The anti-social habits of modern teens are the typical depressed habits of the unemployed, who feel useless.
Middle-class frat brats holding tiki torches can be laughed off. What terrifies the Left in its nightmares is a working class capitalist demo. Wages, work hours, immigrants being held above the law (protected class is against the tenet of blind justice). Offer all three and you’ll win any election.
UBI ignores how adult mortality is most predictive at retirement and how unemployed people are almost all depressed. This isn’t pocket money from parents, these are adults. Infantilization is an abuse tactic. The poor are already infantilized are not knowing what’s good for them, high time preference (unlike spoiled brats?) and degenerate sinners (criticism of welfare queens instead of deadbeat sperm donors, who made them).

Poor people binge-drink, middle-class people are alcoholics.
Poor people are crazy, middle-class people have intermittent explosive disorder.
Poor people are stupid, middle-class kids have dyslexia, ADD, on the non-existent “spectrum” everyone is on.*
Poor people are fat, middle-class people are victims of a sedentary office environment.
Poor rape victims must’ve been prostitutes, middle-class ones are real victims.etc.etc.etc.

*If everyone is on the DISABILITY spectrum, no-one is.
Logically, if one metric of psychiatry applies, so does IQ. Doesn’t that fit the symptoms better?

Thought-terminating cliche

Propaganda and brainwashing tactic. Common to NPCs and idiots when confronted with unknown information, so they don’t have to think, they can just dismiss.

http://jorgenmodin.net/index_html/wikpedias-now-deleted-page-on-thought-terminating-cliche

“The language of the totalist environment is characterized by the thought-terminating cliché. The most far-reaching and complex of human problems are compressed into brief, highly reductive, definitive-sounding phrases, easily memorized and easily expressed. These become the start and finish of any ideological analysis.”

They know. It was deleted until I drew attention to that fact.

Lies porn told you

Tasteful controversy. Nice.

I find it odd we fixate on the likes of Bond girls (Mary Sues mostly) when Bond is psychologically more disturbed than a woman trying to choke him with her maternal thighs or whatever. He’s the active party, right? You could accurately describe his adventures as The Wandering Ballsack. It’s the height of 60s Boomerisms, all he does is consume and fuck around. Nobody talks about it in the context of psychiatric issues except Craig who brilliantly, when asked if there was anything real men could learn from Bond and apply in their life, replied “No. Nothing”.

https://mashable.com/2015/10/23/daniel-craig-james-bond-comments/

Bond is the epitome of a vapid man, who only cares about cars, clothes and indulgence. He’s late-stage Roman empire. This isn’t fucking Shakespeare.
Craig couldn’t be more different from him in real life if he tried;

Bond was skewered greatly by early seasons of Archer, Bond is so weak he can’t stop drinking “or the collective hangover might kill me”. Is bravado now the substitute for genuine toughness in men? Apparently so.

It makes memes like this really fucking cringeworthy.

It hurts to read this shit. All he does is shoot things.

Bitch, he couldn’t turn up to an office job at 8am sober.

Except for token gay subplots stinking up the franchise, am I right?

If that rings a bell –

Two can play at that fucking game. Hurts, doesn’t it?

If your role model has a completely hollow life, what the hell is going on?

I air-punched at him sticking up for himself in this one:
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3284733/Daniel-Craig-shuts-reporter-excruciating-Spectre-interview-repeatedly-asks-pout.html

Amazing quotes from the man himself:

“Let’s not forget that he’s actually a misogynist.”
“I still think he wants to f*ck anything with a pulse.”
“…I don’t give a f*ck.”

He’s 100% English, we hate Bond as the American’s ideal of what a man should be. It’s Hemingway with a different accent, remember he shot himself. It’s a suit and a penis, how insulting. Fleming knew his audience were gullible for some vanity and validation and this was in the 50s, by publication date, supposed heyday of the real thing? We love Craig because he gets how ridiculous it all is. There’s practically a fourth wall break and a wink.

He’ll brain a guy with a kitchen sink and smirk at the camera.

The smirk isn’t “I can get away with this”, it’s “can you believe idiots look up to this shit”?

You can easily live like James Bond these days if you get into a lot of credit card debt. He’s Zoolander with flashy murder gadgets. He’s a massive special snowflake, the world needs him, specifically, to save it. Why not #006 or #008?

In general, in real life, most men aren’t special. They can’t even save themselves from a death spiral of degeneracy. It’s ancient wisdom the wastrel (hedon) has a wasted life, male or female (before you ask).

A role model for men is not a narcissist who goes around shooting people, that’s a TV news story set at a school waiting to happen. Nowadays Bond would be social media famous like old unhinged RDJ and on a public sexual harassment watch list. This guy literally interrupts a woman in her hotel shower, (he broke in) you’d never see that scene play out the other way around. My personal favourite is the almost autistic scene where he looks in on her getting ready, what if she was replacing a tampon or something?

Who looks up to a guy like that? Seriously?
Craig is sick of being treated like a massive jerk.

Could you imagine the boundaries he must have with other men?

There’s no way he wouldn’t be bisexual, don’t lie to me Hollywood.
A man who screws anything that moves is bisexual, it’s a fact.

He doesn’t even hit on a man, not even for work purposes to get info?

You go guy, right?

Statistically, it would be mostly Bond Boys, actually.

I picture Milo in the role, he fits well.

Male honeypots aren’t sleeping with women.

Oh but Monroe’s glamour is tacky, are you kidding me? At least nobody took that seriously, it was fun play acting. If you listen to her interviews she was intelligent. Picture up top, reconcile with her infamous, “If you aren’t committed, don’t bother” speech. These guys twist it but women know that’s the rationale. Women know their worth. Men are wasting their time on external objects and bullshit posturing, while calling the women superficial. I don’t know a single woman who wants to go into debt for a slightly shinier car but okay.

-Gender games

https://www.mercatornet.com/conjugality/view/the-myth-of-the-transgender-desistance-myth/21592

It’s a phase caused to numb the pain of an unhappy time in a person’s life, like SJWism or MGTOW.

Transgender: it isn’t you, it’s your anatomy. (logically, still you)
SJW: it isn’t you, it’s white people. (so no, they aren’t feminists, race>sex or male examples wouldn’t exist)
MGTOW: it isn’t you, it’s women. (usually white women, so cucks)

When the time passes, it disappears like a goth phase. Otherwise, Hulk rage.

Last month a new chapter was opened in the debate on childhood desistance with the publication of a new article in the International Journal of Transgenderism by a group of transgender-affirming activists and clinicians headed by Julia Temple Newhook. Desistance is when children who are diagnosed as gender dysphoric by medical practitioners go on to accept their bodies and do not end up identifying as transgender once they have passed through puberty. The article questions the exceedingly high rates of desistance reported by previous studies.

Kenneth Zucker’s rebuttal, “The myth of persistence,” is a brilliant riposte. Zucker, a psychologist and clinical lead from 1981 to 2015 at the Child Youth and Family Gender Identity Clinic (GIC), Center for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), is an internationally renowned specialist in the field of gender dysphoria and gender-identity development as well as the editor of the journal  Archives of Sexual Behavior.

Just pointing out it’s a mental illness will get you arrested here.

Are anorexics fat too? Must I be forced to agree publicly? (dysphoria has many forms)

What about class dysphoria? Must I treat a poor man like a rich man?

This has been about revoking your right to “treat as you find” and express disapproval.

The American Psychiatric Association named Zucker to be the head of the Sexual and Gender Identity Disorders group in 2008 for the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, also known as the  DSM-5, and he is a member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health  (WPATH). In short, Zucker is a professionally trained psychologist with a profound expertise in gender dysphoria and the intricacies involved with childhood gender identity disorder (GID) diagnosis (which was reclassified as Gender Dysphoria under the DSM-5).  …

Trans activists spearheaded a successful campaign to have Zucker terminated following what Jesse Singal refers to as a “show trial.”

SJWs Always Lie.

Turkeys for Christmas.

It goes to show the depth of their illness, when if you don’t mutilate and harm their group, they’ll punish you.

To reconcile the cognitive dissonance (e.g. cosmetic surgery won’t change a misdiagnosed personality disorder) they force others to make the same mistake out of spite, in a classic sunk cost fallacy.

Typically, if someone wants a ton of cosmetic surgery and a complete physical overhaul, you’d be looking at NPD, BPD and possibly ASPD if they want to look “sexier” (to be a better predator). It’s like changing the cover on a lamp, it doesn’t really matter. In a personality disorder, they will never, ever admit this. Because there’s no bulb.

They want to know they’re worth spending the money on for surgery. Narcissistic, seeking external validation. Covert narcissism can present as constant victimhood and helplessness (a manipulation tactic). The money as a lump sum would work on this group because they’d suddenly “change their mind” and not want surgery.

OR that they can manipulate the clinicians to get what they want, sociopathic. So they’d push for brain surgery if it were the most prestigious treatment option.

OR they think it would actually help, having no stable identity to show, borderline (halfway between neurotic and psychotic). Then they actually have a reason to commit self-murder because they chopped off and “killed” parts of their anatomy already and there’s no going back. Even if you could magically get a POP! new body, you’d need to do years of brutal psychological hard work (adolescence) developing a real personality. No shortcuts.

Painting a door won’t change the house location.

I would hypothesize that when more follow-up data of children who socially transition prior to puberty become available, the persistence rate will be extremely high. This is not a value judgment—it is simply an empirical prediction . . . parents who support, implement, or encourage a gender social transition (and clinicians who recommend one) are implementing a psychosocial treatment that will increase the odds of long-term persistence.  

Allow the parents to push it on condition that, as an adult, their child can sue them for barbaric sexual mutilation if they’re wrong and using them for attention (abuse!)…

The pills affect brain development so it’d be quite a lawsuit.

Taking the “desistance myth” and inverting it perfectly, Zucker shows how the Temple Newhook commentary speaks against desistance by pushing social transition:

Temple Newhook et al. (2018) go on to state that “It is important to acknowledge that discouraging social transition [with reference to the Dutch team’s putative therapeutic approach] is itself an intervention with the potential to impact research findings . . .” Fair enough. But Temple Newhook et al. (2018) curiously suppress the inverse: encouraging social transition is itself an intervention with the potential to impact findings. I find this omission astonishing.
