Red Pill Movie Review — Pale Rider


 

 

 

Here is the teen girl that will be discussed later

 

Here is the mother and daughter who are the subject of this post

 

Here is the introduction of Clint Eastwood’s character; assisting the beta fella who who is taking care of the mother and her daughter

 

Pale Rider is obviously a Western.  I happen to like almost all Westerns, so I would say that it is a mighty fine Western.

Of particular interest are the women, and their relationships to the fellas.  Sarah Wheeler and her daughter Megan Wheeler live in tent in Gold Rush mining camp.  Hull Barret performs as the effective husband and step-father for the duo.  He is a hard-working beta provider type.  The ladies appreciate him, as they would any good beta provider.

An evil rich miner is trying to drive the small miners from their claims, and is slowly succeeding.  He uses intimidation through violence as his means.  Hull gets the crap beaten out of him in the scene above, until the mysterious Preacher saves him.  The Preacher comes to the mining camp, the small time miners organize, violence gradually escalates until the final showdown which is a bit unrealistic, but does not disappoint.

The aspect of interest is the interest that the mother and daughter both take in the violent, mysterious, brooding, man of few words Preacher.  In short, they both fall head over heels for him.  He does his best to shoo them away, for he is a man who cannot be tied down.  Furthermore, he points out there they already have a great fella in Hull.  The Preacher’s words go unheeded, and the ladies pine for him more; even after he has moved on.

When I saw this movie as a youngster, I thought that it was odd that women would act like that.  Obviously there was no future with the Preacher.  He did not have a job, probably never would; and he just roamed the Wild West being who he was.  Obviously the hard-working Hull was where they should be putting their interest.  I thought this way because all of my relatives and the family friends operated this way.  There was, and never had been as far as I could tell, women chasing what I would later in life learn as tingles.

So I experienced lots of adult years, and I learned that the world was not as I envisioned it.  Women do go for the tingles.  Even when it is logically stupid to do so.  Sometimes movies have good lessons in them.  Fellas should heed this one.

    It has been a while since I saw the movie. The climactic gunfight stands out. When I did see it, it was jarring that both mother and daughter were attracted. The mother had the best deal she could cut in Hull and should never had thought about anyone else. The daughter was obviously too young. Women do get weak in the knees for dangerous men. Clint Eastwood had more than enough experience of this in real life. Having dinner with my Dad in jack London’s, I a saw a good looking woman who came in with someone else practically throw herself at him. He wasn’t buying.

    Michael Moriarty went on from this to Law and Order for years.

    I think with Millennials, the fatherlessness goes so deep, a lot of things you would take for granted, they never get a chance to learn. There are no grown men in their lives. If they were dogs, they would still be squatting to pee. A male dog has to see another lift his leg. Then, a whole new world opens up for them. They can go and mark everything they see and they don’t have deal with a wet belly.

    I have a question regarding the OP. The hooligans who beat up Michael Moriarty (Hull Barret character) are which – Beta or Alpha? I am not being snarky here I am asking because of the statement that women want the Alpha even when he is not LTR material. So why did the women here not pine for one or all of the hooligans?

    Old fashioned Westerns keep their plots simple to the greatest degree possible. However, if the bad guys were hanging out in a saloon, the dance hall girls would be all over them because they are bad guys. Does that answer your question?
    In the scene that I linked, Hull takes out the mine owner. That would be alpha, but don’t tell anybody. Overt alphas don’t like it when betas show some spine.

    I can’t remember if I linked this story here or not. Basically, women on Tinder are starting to solicit money, usually five dollars, from men. While Tinder has said they will ban accounts that do this, it is spreading like wildfire. According to the linked article, bots may be doing this too. The women get the money and promptly “unlike” the men to cut off further communication. This may be the death of internet dating and I never expected it to go this way.

    Linny – I learned very early on in my relationship with my wife that bedtime was always much more rambunctious after we had been to a movie that had a significant amount of violence in it. As soon as I thought I saw a link, I started testing for it, and confirmed it. Of course, the time of month also played a role. I was not the cause of the violence my wife witnessed in the movies. But I was the beneficiary of it.

    Scientist who study such things with electrodes, hormone levels, and such report that arousal is arousal. In looking at physical body responses, they cannot determine whether the source of the arousal is fear or joy, sadness or gladness. They conclude that arousal is arousal. It is the mind that attributes the arousal to a particular source (simple version from Attribution Theory)

    I would hazard a guess that violence, and not a specific man, ups the tingles (the raw arousal referred to in the previous paragraph). If that is true, then perhaps the tingles get mentally assigned by women to the man / men who [they perceive] cause the violence (the “attribution” referred to in the previous paragraph). In the case of “The Pale Rider”, the bully was intimidating men. But it was the Preacher who caused the violence that overcame the bullies. Seems like the Preachers violence was bigger than the bully’s violence. You might test that theory by looking at whether the violence created by the Preacher is significantly greater than the violence the bully needed to use to intimidate the miners.

    Question restated: Violence that wins seems to create tingles. Consider the meme about the fish eating the minnow gets eaten by a bigger fish, who in turn gets eaten by a still bigger fish – up to the top of the food chain. Apply this to a violence sequence – small agitator overcome by a larger agitator, who is overcome by a still larger agitator.

    Q: If tingles are generated by violence, does it hold that tingles will transfer to the one who creates the larger violence that wins – as soon as he wins – every time the larger agitator appears? If true, we would expect to see women’s attentions transferred to each new perpetrator of violence that wins, as soon as he wins, on up the chain of violence perpetrators. The one who remains when no new violence perpetrators appear would be the focus of most / all of the tingles. Does this concept hold in real life? I think the stories around women’s response when larger tribes conquer smaller tribes shed light on this.

    Because of that, when men avoid professional relationships with women, even if for noble reasons, it actually hurts women in the end. “The research is irrefutable: Those with larger networks earn more money and get promoted faster. Because men typically dominate senior management, there’s evidence that the most valuable network members may be men,” wrote Kim Elsesser, a research scholar at the UCLA Center for the Study of Women, in the Los Angeles Times recently. “Without access to beneficial friendships and mentor relationships with executive men, women won’t be able to close the gender gap that exists in most professions.”

    The subtle manner in which fake news is created:

    – From the article in “The Atlantic”: “If Pence literally won’t sit at the table with women, where does that leave women’s issues?”

    Pence has not said he will not “sit at the table with women”. I assume you know well what he actually said.

    – From the article in “The Atlantic”: “And indeed, Trump has vowed to defund Planned Parenthood … ”

    The Federal government does not fund Planned Parenthood. PP receives Medicaid monies when they see Medicaid patients, just like any other healthcare organization. And Title X gives block grants to States for them to use in supporting organizations that provide family planning.

    President Obama created a requirement that States had to use a portion of those funds for Planned Parenthood – an intrusion of the Federal level into States-Rights issues. The most recently touted “defunding” of Planned Parenthood by Congress was, in actuality, simply a rescinding of that requirement created by Obama. The Federal government no longer requires States to use a portion of their Title X block grants for the Planned Parenthood organization. The States MAY continue to provide funds from Title X block grants to Planned Parenthood if they so choose. The only thing that has changed is that the Federal government is now no longer requiring States to do so. Defunding Planned Parenthood indeed.

    Words matter. I think the Mainstream Media understand this. That is why they use them so carelessly. Wouldn’t want people to get the right idea now, would we.

    It was a while ago that I read it, but Switzerland was the last European country to give the vote to women. When it came time to cut the budget, the women were all for cutting the Army, talking about “boys and their toys”. It has to be incredibly cheap to operate the Swiss Army. Nearly every adult male is a reservist. Women and feminists have no respect.

    It may be a small comfort, but your country has to be better prepared than before WWII. I think one of the big problems was that all the men were underweight. Food was expensive.
