Herds and Packs


It is understood in the manosphere that men operate in packs and women travel in herds.  What does this mean?  What are its implications?  Let us consider.

In a pack, a group of animals operate as a coordinated team to accomplish a specific goal.  Some of the team members might utilize specialized skills in accomplishing this.  Furthermore, the team is coordinated by a leader, with a hierarchy of the leadership keeping the pack in line.  The leader is expected to make good decisions that lead the pack toward attaining their specific goals.  If it fails too much in this regard, it is replaced.

This describes how men operate.  They join companies, form their own companies, join the military, etc.  There are goals for the team to accomplish.  This scheme works well with men; being drilled into boys from an early age with teamwork and such.  If a man isn’t pulling his weight, significant peer pressure is brought to bear. There is much to like about this approach, as things get done.

Herds on the other hand are large groups of animals that seemingly wander in search of resources.  There is no leader.  Some members of the herd decide that down the next hill looks like some more grass, they head that way, and the herd follows.  Today Cow A initiates the movement, tomorrow Cow B does.  There is no real thinking or planning happening; it all just seems to happen.  The herd just mindlessly chews the resources that appear in front of their face. Furthermore, there is safety in the herd; for any threats can stymied by closing ranks.

Naturally one can see Team Woman in the above description.  The mindless direction, the safety in numbers, the closing ranks, the seemingly endless desire for resources, etc.  Many of them are noticing that the grazing area are starting to look overgrazed, but that is a topic for a later post.

Which model built civilization, which will destroy it?

    I am beginning to form the conclusion that the herd doesn’t place much value on civilization.

  2. The herd takes grass being there for granted. It just grows, right? If not the herd can move along. Or so it seems… The herd cannot plant grass, water grass, till, toil, hay, or put away for the future. It is oblivious to its own precarious survival. Just one drought away from starvation and disaster…

    Similar could be said for the herd mentality, and the assumption that civilization will just “be there and work.” Until it isn’t…

  3. There’s not much of a “plan B” or even the realization a plan B (and C, and D) might be in order. The herd operates in real time. Perhaps if the herd did understand the many ways things could go wrong it could not cope, so the oblivion serves as some sort of denial defense mechanism?

I pick up the phone and police or firemen or medics come. I assume this is all a given when clearly it is not. Women don’t get that very well. That stuff doesn’t “just happen” by a long shot. And how many women even understand the supply chain involved in all that happening? Few. Not enough to make it keep happening for sure.

    It is in their nature to take these things for granted. There is one problem. As Farm Boy has pointed ot in so many of his posts, men have little incentive and, for now, the system is propelled by social inertia.

    That being said, is it necessarily bad that the majority of women + some men are Herders? Would it be preferable if the Packs were compromised of more than just men + some women?

    If our entire species was of the Pack mentality, would we be as numerous as we are? I don’t think so.

    There have always been and always will be the men and women who simply plod along through life expecting others to keep it going.
    Likewise, there have always been and always will be men and women who look at the world around them and find ways to advance it.

    In my middle school, every 6th grader was given the opportunity to go on a 3 week long summertime field trip to what can only be described as a “farm lost in time”. I’m a sucker for new experiences, so I convinced my parents to sign the permission slip.

    While there, we had no electricity, running water, toilets other than an outhouse, etc. It was truly “old time” living. We did have a water pump, though it was a half mile away from the bunkhouse. During our 3 weeks there, the other kids and I learned how to care for cows, chickens, sheep, and the one old horse. They taught us how to make a fire and cook over it. We obviously didn’t have time to grow vegetables for our meals, but we did start gardening for the next group, and reaped the labors of the group before ours. We made candles to use at night, helped cook/prepare the food every dinner, kept the bunkhouse clean, pumped and carried water to the kitchens/animal troughs/bathing tubs, and even got to do some blacksmithing and carpentry (with supervision, of course).

    It was physically tiring for all of us, but also really fun and I have many wonderful memories of this trip. Perhaps every school should offer something like this, as it would give a great perspective on what life would be like without many modern conveniences. I know a LOT of adults who could benefit from this education too. And they wouldn’t even be able to make the excuse that such a trip was “too difficult”…Unless they are comfortable admitting that 11 and 12 year olds are tougher, lol.

    Tarn – that’s a better education than anyone could learn in any classroom.

    after the standardized tests were over, and teachers could actually teach … it was 7th or 8th grade, and they had the kids choose a profession, research the average salary … and then build a life around that. they had to determine gross and net income, rent, car/transportation, utilities, food, recreation (if they had any money left). finally, i though, they’re teaching them something they can use. my daughter has never forgotten it. she would love to move out and live on her own … but she has goals. and she knows the cost and value of things. so she chooses to live at home with gratitude and respect that she has such an offering.

    contrast that with my step son whose mother’s selfish, self-centered, “I DESERVE what I WANT!” attitude seeped in a bit too far. he could live with us for free, but he chooses to live with another family that is charging him (a measly, but a lot to him right now) $300.00 a month room and board. he finally got his first job (after dawdling for months) at a sandwich shop. he’s learning that doesn’t pay enough for rent and to save for a car and to take his girlfriend out. he told his dad he needs a second job.

    he’s too proud and stubborn to take what is offered to him. and when it comes up, he has nothing but sorry, arrogant attitude about it. his mom tried to play the, “Your dad should pay for you to do what you want,” card, “To prove he loves you.” BS. she was short-sighted enough to send that via text message which i fwded on … and then followed up with an email to everyone involved stating clearly that: Money isn’t free. Room and board *can* be if he lives with us. We will *NOT* pay his rent elsewhere nor will we buy him a car. the whining stopped. and he is avoiding me b/c he knows i’ll call him out on his BS … and since his own momma supports it and encourages it and models it, he doesn’t like when i call him on it. my girls just cringe when they hear of the things he’s pulling with her b/c they know their own momma don’t play that game.

    i graduated from high school and moved out at 17 … my parents couldn’t wait to get rid of me, and i couldn’t wait to get out of there. i so did not want that to be the case with my kids … and it’s not. though they want to be on their own, they know they are loved and wanted and safe. priceless. the cycle is broken.

    I’m glad you did too.
    And that you broke the cycle for your own kids.

    The reason I had to become emancipated at 17 is because until I was *18* my father could have gotten custody of me, if he found out I was on my own. Didn’t feel like going from one type of abuse to another, so it was just easier to do the paperwork. Go figure that out…

    The only reason I had the initial funds to get out was that I already had a 20 hour a week job, plus all my hidden money from doing years of yard work, snow shoveling, and babysitting. Most of it went towards college, but I did have enough to buy an old car, so I count it as money well saved. 🙂

    Len Deighton wrote a book called XPD
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XPD

    XPD is a spy novel by Len Deighton, published in 1981, and set in 1979, roughly contemporaneous with the time it was written. It concerns a plan by a group of former SS officers to seize power in West Germany, in which they intend to publish some wartime documents about a (fictional) secret meeting between Winston Churchill and Adolf Hitler in June 1940, and the efforts of a British agent, Boyd Stuart, to prevent the documents becoming public.

    The title is the code used by the Secret Intelligence Service in the novel to refer to assassinations it carries out, short for “expedient demise”.

    The novel was dramatised in eight parts by Michael Bakewell for BBC radio in 1985.

    I was dropping my girls off at MDO (Mother’s Day Out) and ran into a dad I knew. I don’t remember what I said, but he replied, “At least he’s [my husband] not in New York.” I hadn’t heard yet and replied, “Oh, he’ll be there next week.” I remember him looking at me funny.

    I drove into a parking lot where I met my friend, and she came up to me and told me something about a plane crashing into one of the towers before I even got out of my vehicle. Somehow, I knew it was BIG. We went inside and saw it on the TV. When my girls and I got home later that day we went outside to play. They were 3 and 1 years old. I remember it being a beautiful, sunny, blue-sky day … and how juxtaposed that seemed to what was going on.

    My husband was in Atlanta and scheduled to fly out several hours later. His assistant was able to secure a hotel room for him and a rental car. His boss called me within the hour to let me know he was safe and that all their employees had been accounted for.

    They had so many people who needed rental cars that they grouped them together. My husband shared a rental car with 2 or 3 other people whom he dropped off on the way home. I think it was Friday before he arrived home. It was … surreal. He flew out again on Monday, but not to NY.

    I was a mall cop when that went down. Scheduled to work the late afternoon shift, 1400-2400. Woke up late morning, turned on the news, and heard about the tragedy. Even though I’m in Canada, I just *knew* some bad stuff was going to happen at work that day. Sure enough, I showed up to work, and within 30 minutes, a bomb threat is called in. Peeps were mobilized, stuff happened, and one guess who found the “bomb”. :/ Fortunately, it was a false alarm perpetrated by a mentally unstable kid, but still….could have gone without that one in the memory banks.

    I was in senior year of high school, taking a test in AP Biology. Suddenly, the dean starts speaking through the intercoms, asking all the teachers to turn the classroom televisions to the news channels.

    For a while, we watched in stunned silence at the live feeds. Nobody said anything, until some of my classmates started crying. The boy next to me was the first to get a call on his cell phone, and then it was a mad scramble to call families. The high school buses released first, and anyone with a car was allowed to leave immediately in case we had younger siblings. I immediately drove to my siblings school, and picked them up plus three other kids from our neighborhood and got everyone to our house to wait. Everyone was really scared, but we didn’t lose anyone from the immediate neighborhood families.

    From Scott Adams,

    If you are following breaking news, Hillary Clinton abruptly left the 9-11 memorial today because she was reportedly “overheated.” Her campaign says she is fine now.

    You probably wonder if the “overheated” explanation is true – and a non-issue as reported – or an indication of a larger medical condition. I’m blogging to tell you it doesn’t matter. The result is the same.

    Here’s why.

    If humans were rational creatures, the time and place of Clinton’s “overheating” wouldn’t matter at all. But when it comes to American psychology, there is no more powerful symbol of terrorism and fear than 9-11 . When a would-be Commander-in-Chief withers – literally – in front of our most emotional reminder of an attack on the homeland, we feel unsafe. And safety is our first priority.

    Hillary Clinton just became unelectable.
