Toil


The Bible says that men will always have to toil.  And so far it seems to be correct.  And it probably will be true on this point in the future (but maybe not as much in the near future).

With all of the social changes of the last fifty years, the fact that men are expected to work has not changed one bit.  Women can work, not work, be a SAHM, live off of welfare with her children, etc.  But men have only one option — to work.  Probably this is because having civilization function well requires men to work.  It needs their drive (hurray for testosterone), their ability to exert their muscles, their willingness to do nasty and dangerous jobs, their high IQs to make it all happen.

None of this is explicitly acknowledged.  Perhaps if it was, then men would realize how much power they really do have.  This might be one reason why the MSM never acknowledges MGTOW.  For to acknowledge it might give men ideas (or cause a preference cascade), and one cannot have that; men must toil and create excess value say the authorities.

Perhaps this is why Japan is helpless in the face of the herbivores.  What Godzilla could not do, the herbivores will accomplish.  Japan needs them to toil, to work the long hours, to strive.  But they are not willing.  And to call attention to them makes the problem worse.  What is a Government to do?

    Men should be given the same options. That’s all there is to it.

    “…their high IQs to make it all happen.”

    This part is worded strangely, given that there’s generally more women of average IQ and men tend to either be above or below. What does society do with the below average IQ men?

    why isn’t the male distribution wider than the female one? The two SDs appear to be shown as being identical. I don’t believe that’s true.

    That plot shows male mean IQ as higher than female mean (heard of this, VERY unpopular). About 6 points is what I’ve heard, which ties in with the plot above. Remove female IQ ‘drag factor’ from whites and our mean IQ is the same as East Asians.

    Tarnished: “What does society do with the below average IQ men?”

    Farm Boy: “They do physical labor.”

    Pretty much. Low skill jobs, jobs in which they do what others tell them, and as military cannon fodder (Army grunts and Navy swabbies).

    It used to be a man with a 90 or 95 IQ could make an OK living starting out. I went to high school with a lot of men like this, of slightly below average IQ. They weren’t retarded, but they weren’t college bound anytime soon. They didn’t like or excel at school all that much, and high executive functioning wasn’t for them. They graduated high school and either got on at the local factory, worked for the state road maintenance crew, or joined the Army. Came back from the military, maybe then work at the factory or get police/fire training, or drive a truck, or get a trades apprenticeship.

    Now? Factory jobs? Pensions? Ha. Don’t make me laugh. Those jobs are gone and they are NEVER coming back. American heavy industry/ assembly line work is more or less dead. The military has been feminized and subjected to political correctness within an inch of its life. There hasn’t been a conventional, full scale, boots on the ground military operation in 50 years. These men wouldn’t last a month in today’s military- – they’d be up on sex harassment and “insensitivity” charges right off the bat. The current administration hates the military. And enlistment requirements are up — high school diploma and decent grades are required.

    As for local police/fire, municipal budgets are strained to the breaking point, the jobs aren’t there, and local hostility to police agencies and law enforcement tactics has never been higher. Police work is also now much more sophisticated and taking on more of a paramilitary function. As for the trades, it’s difficult to get an apprenticeship, the work is difficult, it requires some smarts and executive function. Lots of men can’t pass the federal CDL testing for a truck driving license because they either cannot (or don’t want to do the work to) learn and retain the information necessary to pass the written testing part of the licensing.

    Now, even if he does all this, there’s still no guarantee he’ll get a job. Even if he gets a job there’s no guarantee he’ll be able to make a living wage just to support himself. And even if he can support himself there’s absolutely no way he can earn enough to support a wife. And even if he can support himself, a wife and kids, he’s probably unable to attract one or keep her long enough to avoid being frivorced.

    The typical below average intelligence man is at the bottom of the totem pole and will always be there. Society no longer has any place for him. He isn’t attractive for marriage. He’s unlikely to get married and, if he does marry, he’s at enormous risk for frivorce. He’s always in danger of losing his job. He can never make ends meet. He can’t support a family on his own; his wife (if he can get one) will have to work. His wife doesn’t respect him; his children hate him; his society doesn’t want him.

    Rolling Stone is guilty of monumentally bad journalism. We can all agree on that. But the media watchdogs are guilty too – guilty of cowardice, a cowardice that is so pathetic that they even pander to liars — as long as the liars are women who make claims against men — no matter how outrageous or false.

    If a male college student made up some phony story about how a young woman on campus hit him over the head with a beer bottle, the media, the president of the University, and the police wouldn’t let him get away with it.

    But Jackie is off limits.

    That’s because in a liberal PC culture, women are seen as victims of male oppression. So what if Jackie wasn’t really raped? A mere technicality. She could have been. After all, rape on America’s college campuses is a “plague” — a word used by a former Washington Post ombudsman on CNN. Except, that’s another lie. There is no plague. There is no epidemic of campus rape.

    I was doing charity work one Sat. night. A Christian 42 yo woman with a 17 yo daughter in tow at the dance party asked to be entertained. I did so. Charity work. Gave her a lot of attention. She gave off the over-committed-to-her-kids vibe and the nun vibe. I wasn’t terribly interested in her with those vibes. We chatted a lot and had rapport. Rapport is not equal to tingles. She confessed that she is in a rut. I took her out for a walk, but wasn’t interested in kissing her. I did test for chemistry briefly at the time and there was a little.

    I got her number and texted her a few times, but she isn’t interested in texting or following up.

    She *should* be interested considering we had rapport and I gave her my attention and ignored a lot of younger women on a Sat. night, but the amygdala doesn’t care about what a woman *should* do. Go for the tingles. Women only care about the feelz. It’s how they’re wired.

    Walter Scott

    Mr. Scott had been arrested about 10 times, mostly for failing to pay child support or show up for court hearings, according to The Post and Courier newspaper of Charleston. He was arrested in 1987 on an assault and battery charge and convicted in 1991 of possession of a bludgeon, the newspaper reported. Mr. Scott’s brother, Anthony, said he believed Mr. Scott had fled from the police on Saturday because he owed child support.

    “He has four children; he doesn’t have some type of big violent past or arrest record,” said Chris Stewart, a lawyer for Mr. Scott’s family. “He had a job; he was engaged. He had back child support and didn’t want to go to jail for back child support.”

    Mr. Stewart said the coroner had told him that Mr. Scott was struck five times — three times in the back, once in the upper buttocks and once in the ear — with at least one bullet entering his heart. It is not clear whether Mr. Scott died immediately. (The coroner’s office declined to make the report available to The Times.)

    I am not having an emotional response.

    Ferguson is a completely different scenario. As I understand it, the rounds went in the front of the body / top of the head while the huge guy was head down charging the cop with whom he’d already struggled over the cop’s gun. That was tantamount to SBC. I’d jail the lying fuck ‘witnesses’ for incitement to riot. And the riot inciting press (for that and Martin).

    The legal system makes money by having guys like the latest murdered guy go through the courts and being kept in jail. They make it from your taxes.

    Men kill themselves over the cycle I listed above – THAT was the the main reason I made the original comment here. Let the legal system handle the cop, the video footage should have him righteously fucked over from the online clips.

    As usual, I actually agree with most of what you write…then you go too far. Given your line of work maybe that’s part of why you’re still alive. But it’s unacceptable to me to have cops shooting people in the back..and that’s what the video shows and that’s why this latest one is different.

    Oh, cappy got tired of shooting himself in the arse over MGTOW, did he? Did he do the sums and work out he was losing cash? Or just realise his click bait shite was losing him any respect?

    Too late for me, he was off the links page ages ago.

    By all means link to him. Not a problem here. That article was a return to subject matter he used to cover well fwiw. But he lost me as a regular viewer with his rambling, horking filled, self indulgent videos. The MGTOW / TFL shit was the end. Same as PIGTOW was the overdue end of avfm afaiac.

    Spawny Get,
    I have no idea why either of those guys went after MGTOWs. It’s not the brightest strategy to alienate your natural allies, especially when Karen Straughan has 92k subscribers and this Bree has 249k. To borrow a military analogy, you don’t split your forces in the face of that kind of superiority.

    Morning Fuzzie,
    I wish Karen went back to the old videos. I tried listening to a few honey badger shows but they’re a mess of talking over each other (Skype type issues I suspect, not rudeness). They irritate me to have on even as background sound. I liked Typhon’s older stuff too. I wish randomercam would chill the fuck out, the performance art doesn’t work for me, I’m afraid.

    When avfm jumped the shark, I went with jto, dd, bar bar etc. Not that my side doesn’t have issues. I wish thinking ape would script his videos and up the tempo. I like the content, but dude, if you have something to say, at least try and make it listener friendly. MGTOW messenger is rather good, he’s been through the system over here.

    And no, don’t hold your breath for TVSpawny. 🙂

    Spawny Get,
    TVSpawny??? Imagine all of us, in full costume, having a Google+ video chat. Not only your movie star good looks but, Moe, Tarn the Unicorn, Padawan, Yoda, Farm Boy in overalls, a talking bear, and, maybe, we could get the Rainbow Furby back.
    We could invite Harriet Harman, put floppy ears on her, and introduce her to Jar Jar.!
    Think of the possibilities.

    I wish Karen would do more stuff like the old stuff. She keeps promising.

    If that’s the best answer you have you pretty much conceded my point. And… way to drop the respect I had for you

    That’s their duty day Gamer, and done by the military and not a college

    Buddy, I wasn’t debating. Just wanted to get your take on that web site. When it comes to Special Forces NCO’s, I don’t know 5h1t from shinola. I read something in a news article about Special Forces noncoms earning advanced degrees and was curious about the topic, whether there was any truth to it.

    What do you mean by “That’s their duty day”?

    I don’t think the best officers learn much of anything from higher education (no matter how shithot they are in combat or otherwise). It’s more of a square they have to fill (war college is required for any rank over O5, and now a masters IN ADDITION TO the warcollege masters is required).

    The people who made this requirement aren’t the ones spending 8 months out of the year in warzones. They are douchebag tools who have a lot of free time to schmooze and want their college diplomas to matter a great deal more than they do.

    FWIW, military women LOVE the master’s requirement over actual accomplishment. It works to their advantage, obviously.

    Just to add…war college can be done a number of ways. Usually getting a war college correspondence degree is required before applying to the actual school. That’s right, in order to get into the school you have to already have a degree from the school…it’s degree dopio. Again, this is chick-work.

    Rank ove O4, shouldn’t said above. Sorry for the rambling posting…but, truly, if a person has enough free time with their job in the military to get a regular masters AND a correspondence masters as required to make O5, the military can probably do without them. This is the type of stuff people who do nothing but sit in missile silos with nothing to do come up with. (sorry, yet another emotional issue for me…Mike was deploying for months and then coming home to 16 hour days AND had to get this correspondence shite over with while also getting another worthless papermill masters all to make rank).

    To poke the hornet’s nest again, I’ll throw in my thoughts about the recent shooting. Ferguson, to pick a recent-ish example, is still fresh in my mind (Hands up don’t shoot, anyone?) and I believe nothing the media has to say about this, or any other subject. I’m withholding judgement until the case hits court. I still won’t have all that much faith in the “facts” at that point, but I’ll have more faith than I do now.

    Since Ton brought up the issue of eyewitness testimony, let me add my thoughts, having studied this topic in some depth.

    Eyewitness testimony must be scrutinized carefully. Corroboration with another eyewitness is required before any empirical claim can be accepted as fact. Eyewitnesses must be sequestered during questioning. Eyewitnesses aren’t allowed to draw conclusions. Only empirical statements from them are allowed. The bias of witnesses is irrelevant. Only corroboration matters. We assume that the questioning authorities have the skill to discover whether the testimony is cooked.

    There are many problems with circumstantial evidence, including provenance, evidence planting, evidence tampering, forensic skill, etc.

    The ancient Hebrews understood these requirements about eyewitness testimony as we see in the law and the gospel accounts.

    The police officer did a terrible job and should be fired/banned. But even the video shows the guy running away (dorkily, btw, maybe because of the volts) with attached taser prongs and thereby yanking the unit away from the cop. I’m going to guess that published training materials specifically allow, in writing, deadly force in such a situation.

    So far, the official reaction at every level from what I’ve seen of that case has been knee-jerk political rather than investigatory. I’m withholding judgement.

    It doesn’t look good…but I’ve seen so many case where partial evidence was so very misleading and unreliable, I won’t even hazard a guess here. There was another officer at the end of the scene and it would seem he (or a masculine she? hard to tell from the tape) would have seen the subterfuge if the cop actually “planted” the stun gun. Unless the cop at the scene was “in on it” as well…but that seems unlikely, especially with video taped evidence and all of this political pressure.

    Since the video was taken away from the actual area the man was stopped in his car and the beginning shows what looks to be an end to some sort of confrontation, it’s not beyond the rhelm of possibility that the fleeing individual dropped the taser after the LEO discharged his weapon, and moved several feet more after, dropping to the ground. Then, the officer went to retrieve the taser and dropped it next to the victim’s prone body. But, again…we only have partial evidence.

    excellent point, can’t have a hog roast without inviting Big Red. Ideally she can bring her own apple…a big one given the size of her bloody great gob.

  98. The guy was foolish to run, but just based on the limited evidence we have now, the cop seems to have gone too far. It’s not just the use of lethal force which was seemingly unjustified, but it looks to me like deliberate tampering of evidence.

    I actually really like and respect cops in general; so far those I’ve encountered in my country and in the US have been nice and helpful, and I know they do a dangerous and important job. Good cops (most of them, IMO) are very admirable pple. But bad or corrupt cops are some of the most dangerous pple around. Tampering with evidence to frame someone is horrible.

    Like Liz says, the video doesn’t show what happened in the earlier part of this confrontation, and that’s a crucial piece of missing info. But just based on what was seen, the officer didn’t have “probable cause to believe that the suspect poses a significant threat of death or serious physical injury to the officer or others” which is the benchmark allowing for lethal force, based on the 1985 Supreme court ruling.

    Here’s a (very OT) example of what the OPR (part of the promotion) process is like. No meritocracy. This could be a documentary, it’s so true. (actually, medical care is similar with the nursing care plans and higher education nonsense…not quite as bad because the military is even more government regulated, but the education system is close (wish we could go back to the certification/merit based on experience system but I’m a dinosaur)

    And the reflective belt nonsense…though I think they’ve done away with this, this is absolutely accurate:

    Yes, in a warzone. When bureaucracy speaks, life is truly satire.
