Incentives Matter — Third World Edition


A common refrain in the Manosphere is that incentives matter.  They absolutely do with respect to men, women, marriage, etc.  Presently the incentives for marriage by men are often nil, but in the western world, men still have some incentive to at least work.  Maybe not always super hard, but work all the same.  Feminists have removed the incentive to marry, what if they remove the incentive to work?

A few years ago, while perusing a magazine, I read a story about tourist traveling through Kenya.  She came upon a ramshackle roadside stand selling some craft items.  The lady was very impressed by the products, and suggested to the man that he should borrow some money and expand his business.  He quickly set her straight.  If he expanded his business, then he would become visible to the local powers.  He would be an inviting target.  They would find some way to steal his business.  So therefore he was really content to live at a barely subsistence standard of living.  He enjoyed making his crafts, and to be left alone by the authorities.

This is typical of third world hell-holes.  They might have people who might be industrious under the correct  circumstances; they might have abundant natural resources, but it all goes to waste due to corruption combined with lack of property rights.  The British were rather adept at administering their Empire, and probably when Kenya was under their control, less of this happened.

Here in the western world, we are seeing hints of third world hell-hole approaches appearing.  There is the cult of personality, the corrupt crony capitalism, the grandiose proclamations of the leaders, etc.  The questions are,

  1.  Is the western world slowly slipping toward becoming third world hell-holes?
  2. Do Feminists care if it does?

    Farm Boy,
    I have to agree, men are being disincentivized.
    Feminists could care less. All they care about is what matters to them.

    I don’t know why but, I am reminded of a story of when Castro got to Havana. The locals came out and took sledgehammers to the parking meters. The previous dictator’s wife would gamble away the proceeds every night at roulette.
    That was 1959. Still no roulette wheels or parking meters in Cuba.

    The C-130 is a straight-wing, low and slow aircraft, so a touch and go on a 600 foot runway is not that big a deal. To depart from the deck from a standing start they use rocket-assist.

    Once I was cruising around the Shenandoah Valley in norther VA in a 1935 J-3 (Piper Cub, 65 horsepower) with the door off, my ex- in the front seat. It was a beautiful summer evening, air like glass. We were about 500′. A C-130 from the WV NG (Martinsburg) buzzed us — from underneath.

    Third world problem this is,

    The assignment was simple — all this money had been raised, where was it going, was it actually doing good?

    He discovered it was not doing good, but, horrifically, unimaginably, the exact opposite. The Ethiopian dictator, Mengistu, until then deadlocked in the war, was using the money the west gave him to buy sophisticated weapons from the Russians, and was now able to efficiently and viciously crush the opposition. Ethiopia, then the third poorest country in the world, suddenly had the largest, best equipped army on the African continent.

    By this time we had all seen the pictures and TV footage of Bob Geldof, the figurehead of Live Aid, bear hugging and playfully punching Mengistu in the arm as he literally handed over the funding for this slaughter. It was on TV now alright, but as an endless, relentless reel of heroic Bob Geldof highlights. He drenched himself in the adulation and no one begrudged him it, until our investigation exposed the holocaust that Live Aid’s collected donations had help perpetrate on the Eritrean independence fighters.

    Most damningly, Keating reported that Geldof was warned, repeatedly, from the outset by several relief agencies in the field about Mengistu, who was dismantling tribes, mercilessly conducting resettlement marches on which 100,000 people died, and butchering helpless people. According to Medicins Sans Frontiers, who begged Geldof to not release the money until there was a reliable infrastructure to get it to victims, he simply ignored them, instead famously saying: “I’ll shake hands with the Devil on my left and on my right to get to the people we are meant to help.”

    Bernie Sanders a problem he did cause,

    Bernie Sanders said:
    Rape and assault is rape and assault. Whether it takes place on campus or on a dark street. And if a student rapes a fellow student, that has got to be understood to be a very serious crime. It has got to get outside of the school and have a police investigation. And that has to take place. Too many schools are seeing this as ‘well it’s a student issue, let’s deal with it.’ I disagree with that. It is a crime and it has to be treated as a serious crime. And you are seeing now the real horror of many women who have been assaulted or raped, sitting in a classroom alongside somebody who raped them. Rape is a very, very serious crime and it has to be prosecuted. It has to be dealt with.

    Liberals are up in arms about this, which would be a cause for alarm for him if liberals had another candidate this year.

    The Huffington Post said:
    Advocates, higher education officials and sexual assault survivor-activists have routinely opposed bills proposing to send all cases to police, citing a distrust in the criminal justice system and data showing that prosecutors rarely bring charges in campus rape cases. Fewer than 10 percent of rape cases reported to police result in criminal charges against an accused perpetrator, according to one 2012 study.

    We know why liberals do not want cops investigating accusation of rape, because most of them are false.

  12. I saw the lack of incentive thing at work when I visited China. One resturaunt in particular, you could tell the employees didn’t care at all. No pride in the work at all, just a job, going through the motions. No concept of customer service. Or hospitality. I’d never seen anything like it! Incentives are good.

    Another thought occurred to me. Wouldn’t false rape accusations count as honor code violations?

    “live in mud Huts?”
    Yes, for alpha they would be very happy to live in huts.

    For college girls, false rape accusations is pretty much a winning move. They can avoid embarrassing situations by calling it rape, obtain revenge, get sympathy, the coveted victimhood status. What is not to like?

    If a woman secures a man she considers ‘alpha’, implied is that she locked down a man out of her league. She’s just scored! in a game one might call relationship arbitrage.

    One common response to her lingering disbelief and insecurity, then, is to immediately ring-fence the man. After all, she didn’t think she was going to get him, so she’s going to wonder how she’s going to keep him. It doesn’t occur to her that a man chose her as well, for reasons of his own, and that he’s capable of honoring his own decision and commitment.

    (And there’s some massive projection operating here, because female hypergamy, she fails to realize, is not inherent to male mate selection. Just because she will trade up or out if bored, if she has the opportunity, doesn’t mean the man will. Obviously it’s just the opposite, with men.)

    Women with a habit or legacy of relationship-wrecking, through promiscuity or simple emo-psychological pathologies, offer a more challenging form of mate-guarding. She’ll accuse the man of disloyalty, running around, will say “You don’t love me!”, will deliberately sabotage her own stated objective (monogamous intimacy).

    In essence, she will be so unpleasant as to dare that man to jump her ring-fence. This is shit-testing raised to operatic levels. Quickly the man will be reduced to “Yes, dear”/”happy wife-happy life” mode if he a) doesn’t split; b) doesn’t know how to put her in her place; c) has children and assets to protect from her partner, the government; or d) blindly cares what the culture thinks of him, and that culture says that if he puts a ring on it, he’s consigned to a life of har-har self-deprecating misery in his man-cave, when he’s not pulling her wagon until he croaks.

    The only women I’ve ever met who do not practice this form of relationship sabotage are those with admirable, strong fathers who sustain reasonably healthy relationships with their mothers. Since the dawn of feminism, obviously, the number of families with healthy parental dynamics, like that, are fewer and fewer. On the first date, the majority of women over 30, talk about the “abusive” or “dishonest” nature of their prior men and fathers. This signals that they are claiming the enhanced status of a lifelong victim, irrespective of how well their lives have gone, and that she views each man she meets as intrinsically unreliable and potentially predatory.

    As the great philosophers known as Monty Python note, “Run away!”

    Yoda, California, which led the way with the campus kangaroo court/affirmative consent/guilty-until-proven-innocent laws, has discovered that men are defending themselves by recording their sexual encounters. This cannot stand, because all rape accusers must be believed.

    So California is now debating a new law that would make it illegal for a man to prove his innocence, were he to disprove his accuser with a live-action tape of his sexual proceedings with a delicate flower. I believe the law will be passed.

    It is The Bern’s error to suggest that law enforcement manage accusations of felony assault, because this would require woman attempting to ruin a man to actually deal with, you know, evidence and investigation.

    ***

    As addendum to my prior remark, the self-sabotaging woman who does succeed in destroying her relationship or marriage with a man she considers an “alpha”, often will consider herself, then, an alpha widow. And she’ll go full Medusa in her efforts to destroy him, under the behavioral impulse that is “If I can’t have him, no other woman will either!” Cue the tearful claims to police/courts/employers/friends of abuse and deceit. Which also takes us back to the California school of guilt by accusation.

    All women know they have the option to accuse and afflict any man with the temerity to defend his sovereignty and integrity. California, and the feminist left in general everywhere, is just transitioning divorce court behavior to the realm of casual dating.
