SWST — Puppet Master


From here,

We don’t live in a patriarchy. Once, we did, at least in a de jure sense. Women have long possessed a measure of de facto power through their husbands and sons. However, in my own lifetime we have lived in something else. I won’t call it a matriarchy, because it isn’t quite that. Rather, today we live in a society dedicated to fulfilling all the fanciful wishes of women. Interestingly enough, women do not like living under a matriarchy despite all the feminist calls for such, and so we have system that outwardly resembles a patriarchy, with superficial trimmings of male enfranchisement. Yet this only exists insofar as it serves the interests of women.

Let us consider this paragraph.

We don’t live in a patriarchy. Once, we did, at least in a de jure sense. Women have long possessed a measure of de facto power through their husbands and sons.  Yes they have.  The Feminine Wiles can be strong.  Does anybody deny it?  And no, they have not always been totally at the whims of men, they could always get jobs as nurses, teachers, etc.

I won’t call it a matriarchy, because it isn’t quite that. Rather, today we live in a society dedicated to fulfilling all the fanciful wishes of women.  From affirmative action, unequal divorce rules, allowing them to hide behind children, the ability to destroy man on a whim, normalizing their desires for alpha fux / beta bux, serial monogamy,  Plus all of the money transfers, direct and indirect. They want the world to be an amusement park to their liking.

Interestingly enough, women do not like living under a matriarchy despite all the feminist calls for such, and so we have system that outwardly resembles a patriarchy, with superficial trimmings of male enfranchisement.  This gives the game away.  Even women realize that a true Matriarchy would be a disaster.  It is better to have men believe that they are in charge, even if they labor under the weight of taxes to benefit women and the threat of being ruined capriciously by any woman they meet (or don’t meet).  If they kinda/sorta feel this way, they will work to keep the present system going.  Of course, women hate other women, so a Matriarchy would result in endless catfights and demotivated men. Women don’t want that, and can sense that this would happen if a true Matriarchy existed.

Yet this only exists insofar as it serves the interests of women.  Why, yes it does,  It is also another society wide shit test.  As with the other society wide shit tests, it comes forth from the emergent behavior of women and their desire to push the limits.  However, in this case, theyy can sense that they can’t push this too far.  Or do they?

Deti:

This is about “soft power” and “hard power”.

“soft power”: Manipulation, talking, scheming, conniving, lying, obfuscation, fraud, deception, social arrangements, backchannel influence with male family members (especially husbands, brothers and fathers), a particular woman’s position in the female social matrix (who’s friends with whom, who’s enemies with whom, frenemies, mean girls, who’s dating whom, who’s fucking whom, who’s in the know and who isn’t, who holds the fun parties, who gets invited to said parties, who’s’ married, who’s divorced, did you hear about so and so sleeping with/having affair with so and so, etc.)

“Hard power”: use of violence, use of force, threatening the use of violence and force, accumulation and holding of resources, ability to marshal and command resources, ability to withhold resources, political influence, status and position at job/occupation, authority over immediate and extended family backed up by government, church, political institutions, economic reality, culture, and tradition.

Women are experts at the use of soft power, (some) men are experts at the use of hard power.

Women didn’t want to be limited to soft power. So they demanded more and more hard power. And we gave it to them.

At the same time, men were more and more limited in their ability to deploy hard power, especially brute force. And at the same time, men found themselves unwelcome and not very adept at using soft power. For one, soft power is effeminate. For another, men naturally aren’t very good at using soft power. They’re just not good at it.

And despite what people tell us, women aren’t very good at using hard power. The natural and customary use of hard power creates manifest unfairnesses. It divides the world into winners and losers. Hard power resolves matters fully and finally, with no appeal rights, and with an eye toward finality and workability for the most amount of people and preservation of the most resources. Hard power is less inclined toward fairness and justice. And when those matters are resolved fully and finally, some people lose out. Some people incur great cost and suffer great pain and inconvenience. Hard power concentrates power into the hands of a few, and into the hands of the people (almost always men) who are the best at using it.

Women don’t like this. Because unfair and because need for consensus and because need to avoid pain.

When women use hard power, they start demanding more and more exceptions to it, or shaping it until it’s unrecognizable, mostly because not doing so is “unfair”. They “soften” hard power until it’s no longer hard. They can’t bring themselves to use hard power as it’s intended to be used. And when they try to use hard power, many of them can’t stand firm in the decisions they just made, because they don’t want to be the ones who caused pain or inconvenience to someone else. And many women try to use soft power where hard power needs to be used – they try to manipulate, lie, deceive and defraud, instead of taking action and making a decision and then doing the things that need to be done to implement said decision.

That’s what all this is really about.

    Headhunter made the comment that immediately came to my mind. Understanding the concept of “pushing” and “far enough” and “too far” requires a good grasp of cause and effect. An idea that I think can be developed further is that women’s understanding of cause and effect may be limited to “pushing causes good things to happen for me”. That is, the cause and effect inherent in “I do this and then I get that as a result”.

    In college I had an independent study. My professor was doing a literature survey on Attribution Theory and gave me a choice to either pick a topic and write a paper, or go through the professional journals over the previous ten years and copy the Abstract page for every article on Attribution Theory I could find and give those to him for his research project.

    That was quite an education, because I tended to scan the articles – plus other ones nearby on other subjects. One article in particular struck me immediately and and has stuck with me ever since. The author of whatever I was reading was a psychiatrist and was treating a reasonably-young lady who had recently been divorced by her husband. The author was studying the phenomenon exemplified by the patient’s response.

    By her own admission, the patient had treated her husband horribly. Why did you behave that way?, asked the author. Because I thought he would never leave was the patient’s response. That was why the patient had sought out the doctor – to get some help getting her head around why he left.

    I was dumfounded then. Still dumfounded today by other displays of the same lack of understanding of cause and effect in personal relationships.

    Even if women aren’t very good with cause and effect, when they see men dropping out, a few are going to wonder. The more I think about it, the more I see that Suzanne Venker is right. The “crazies” have taken over the female hive mind. Only when the greater portion of women have seen them fail, will the sane ones be restored to prominence. Men aren’t going to be directly involved. We’re not set up to make war on women.
    There is one point that will hurry this along. Women are not used to being involuntarily celibate. That is how feminism will be shown to fail.

    That was what got me then, and now. She thought he would never leave. So she treats him horribly. Why? Why not treat him well, and build a good relationship together? I’d like to think it’s just a personality thing. But all I’ve read recently suggests that it is something more than that. Either that, or a great many women all have the same personality.

    “The permanentness of marriage removes dread, removal of dread = licence to dump on men”

    Like Dalrock’s post illuminated, women want the effervescent circus, to be childish, have fun, be entertained, pursue leisure, show their ass to who they want, how they want, and when they want… To not have to be introspective, not have to consider consequences, not be held accountable… In short, to remain ignorantly, blissfully immature.
    All the arguments and purposes behind modern feminism are seeking to preserve and perpetuate women’s (and gay’s) blissful immaturity. It is an idol.
    All women (and arguably all humans) have this nature, but a decent woman recognizes this proclivity to be a weakness, whereas a bad woman selfishly proclaims it as a right.
    Dread is only a gameplay that keeps them aware of the precariousness of life, and therefore humble and real.
    Marriage should not remove dread, but should magnify it. When you have something really good, you have more to lose. But the debasement of marriage substitutes true goodness with the idol of selfish immaturity.

    No man fears a woman. Women are powerless without the state to do violence on their behalf. Remember John Wayne in “The Quiet Man”? If she’s being a bitch, you give her a chance or two to mend her ways and then you just drop her off at her family’s house and tell her father the deal’s off. That culture protected the man AND the woman (she had a right to her things and to be treated well, not coddled or put on a pedestal) if they both behaved themselves. Yes, there were still shitty marriages, the world is not a perfect place. But marriage was not a terrible deal for men back then the way it is now.

    Some women dig the introverted type, but not as many; most women like more out going men….. it takes a lot stronger frame to pull off the strong silent type and most men, even extroverts, do not have much in the way of frame. Soooo typically introverts do not come across as the aloof, strong, silent etc. type. Mean while it’s much easier for a woman to pick up on social ques with the more out going types. And hamsters are lazy so they go the easy route. Like extrovert vs introvert, pre selection etc etc

    For the more introverted type, next time you are at a social gathering….. don’t be introverted on the fringes of the socializing. Put yourself into the middle of the mix, smile when something is semi witty, smirk on occasions, make some gestures…… Drop the occasional word bomb…. but do it all from the center instead of the edges.

    The selective outrage of feminists over disparities like the one in tech is revealing. There is a conspicuous shortage of school programs, campaigns, marches, and hashtags to end the gender gap in, say, teaching, or counseling, which according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics are professions overwhelmingly dominated by women. Nursing is a pretty good gig — it pays well, is flexible, and nurses can find work anywhere. So, where should we look for the anti-male bias that made it so that more than 90 percent of nurses are women?

    Meanwhile, you will search in vain for the calls to eliminate the overrepresentation of men in mining, trucking, sewage, and garbage collecting. The reason for all this is that the feminist Left isn’t so much a political movement for equality with a consistent philosophy as much as it is an expression of rage over the fact that men and women tend to make different career decisions.

    That’ll be great for Starbucks’ business. Their yuppie douchebag clientele love the homeless in the abstract, but we’ll see how much they appreciate their coffee shops being jammed with them, close-up-like, occupying most tables and chairs.

    I don’t even want to defend Starbucks; I want them to have the full taste of Social Justice Warrior progressivism. If this is the company’s ideology, then they should live that ideology to the full.

    This is the man o sphere, and the man o sphere is centred on the tactical realities of the smp/ mmp. Which means alpha/ beta is about how women respond to men. To have any sort of fruitful conversation we need to stick with commonly understood terms.

    ‘Waugh also said, when people asked how he could call himself a Catholic: You have no idea how bad I’d be if I weren’t.’

    Yup…the biggest risk in this life for any of us is denying we are a sinner. The minute you deny that…you can rationalize any sin you want for your own purpose.

    ‘Sins of the flesh, let us remember, are at the bottom of the scale. The Church says self-righteousness is at the top.’

    What he doesn’t realize though is that the sins of the flesh are the foundation of leading yourself to self-righteousness. And then you are in a world of pain. That’s why those need to be nipped in the bud.

    And he nailed it here by what really makes feminists angry…

    ‘One good thing was hearing Mary praised for her motherhood. Whatever my own mother’s shortcomings, I learned that motherhood is the greatest vocation, and one that God banned all men from. That’s why I think it’s sad that today’s feminists, as Chesterton observed, despise motherhood and all the other chief feminine characteristics. The idea that men and women shouldn’t be different — shouldn’t have different interests, strengths, and ways of relating to Creation — is insane, and it’s empirical fact that trying to deny these differences makes all of us less happy.’

    This is about “soft power” and “hard power”.

    “soft power”: Manipulation, talking, scheming, conniving, lying, obfuscation, fraud, deception, social arrangements, backchannel influence with male family members (especially husbands, brothers and fathers), a particular woman’s position in the female social matrix (who’s friends with whom, who’s enemies with whom, frenemies, mean girls, who’s dating whom, who’s fucking whom, who’s in the know and who isn’t, who holds the fun parties, who gets invited to said parties, who’s’ married, who’s divorced, did you hear about so and so sleeping with/having affair with so and so, etc.)

    “Hard power”: use of violence, use of force, threatening the use of violence and force, accumulation and holding of resources, ability to marshal and command resources, ability to withhold resources, political influence, status and position at job/occupation, authority over immediate and extended family backed up by government, church, political institutions, economic reality, culture, and tradition.

    Women are experts at the use of soft power, (some) men are experts at the use of hard power.

    Women didn’t want to be limited to soft power. So they demanded more and more hard power. And we gave it to them.

    At the same time, men were more and more limited in their ability to deploy hard power, especially brute force. And at the same time, men found themselves unwelcome and not very adept at using soft power. For one, soft power is effeminate. For another, men naturally aren’t very good at using soft power. They’re just not good at it.

    And despite what people tell us, women aren’t very good at using hard power. The natural and customary use of hard power creates manifest unfairnesses. It divides the world into winners and losers. Hard power resolves matters fully and finally, with no appeal rights, and with an eye toward finality and workability for the most amount of people and preservation of the most resources. Hard power is less inclined toward fairness and justice. And when those matters are resolved fully and finally, some people lose out. Some people incur great cost and suffer great pain and inconvenience. Hard power concentrates power into the hands of a few, and into the hands of the people (almost always men) who are the best at using it.

    Women don’t like this. Because unfair and because need for consensus and because need to avoid pain.

    When women use hard power, they start demanding more and more exceptions to it, or shaping it until it’s unrecognizable, mostly because not doing so is “unfair”. They “soften” hard power until it’s no longer hard. They can’t bring themselves to use hard power as it’s intended to be used. And when they try to use hard power, many of them can’t stand firm in the decisions they just made, because they don’t want to be the ones who caused pain or inconvenience to someone else. And many women try to use soft power where hard power needs to be used – they try to manipulate, lie, deceive and defraud, instead of taking action and making a decision and then doing the things that need to be done to implement said decision.

    That’s what all this is really about.
