Young Men – Reevaluate

Ongoing premise — The world is set against young men.  They need to be smarter and wiser than others.  Here is another piece of advice

Young men can evolve at a good rate.  The world is still young, there are many things that can be learned.  It is good for a young fella to take it all in.

At the same time, the present world is evolving quickly also.  What was true a few years ago is not necessarily true today.  The future will bring more changes, many of them not so good.

This dual set of evolution might be confusing to a young man.  He might start heading down a path that will not leave him a good place later.

Periodically, a young man should step back and revaluate where he is and where he is going.  When doing this, advice from other men is usually helpful.  Not just age cohort friends, but older men also.  Many perspectives can help one see where one is and where one might go,

But doing this should not necessarily stop when a man gets older.  This should be a lifelong process.

    Young men need to resist the urge to latch on to the victimhood complex. Feminists and homos might make them think it gives them some sort of meaning in their tortured lives…but it’s not meant for the productive.

    We read a lot about how men should help the young drop the scales from their eyes, but I mostly get agreeable but patronizing looks from a 20-something man. I wonder if some personal disaster is required for a young man to start believing a man, instead of a blue pill dad, mother, and every teacher he ever had.

    This guy might be reachable now, however.

    One guy I know is an accomplished junior exec, with a superior personality for a life as a high-functioning corporate guy. He could go all the way. He’s in a ruthless meat processing company, but he just glides.

    Mother has been married five times, three times to same guy (not exaggerating); father alienated early, so he didn’t know him until college; one ex-gf I also know; she’s now a sugar baby in the state capital and drowning in her student debt; another ex- was a single mom who tried to pin another guy’s “oops” pregnancy on him.

    He listens to me and I try very hard to be low-key, but I just get the smile and quiet nod. So my take is he’s going to get majorly creamed sometime in the next ten years, and then he may decide that mom was giving bad advice.

    I have another, a 23 year-old anglo ward who drives a truck for the town, lives with his Mexican gf and their “ooops” infant. She won’t let him have major league baseball on their cable package; he can’t go out and watch football with his dad and friends; her family (they’re on-the-run Mexicans who crossed the local cartel or something) won’t speak with him because he’s socially inferior (!!!!) he and his stepdad bought them a fine house. So I am his confessor or something because he’s a mess. But when I mention something, like saying, “Tell the wife: Sorry, we’re not going to bicker about MLB, I ordered it” or “Boundaries are important in marriage, they establish some rules of the road so we don’t always smash into each other” he looks like I’m poisoning his favorite puppy. 23 and terrified.

    And this poor guy will get the pallet of concrete blocks on his head, and he won’t be able to afford his house and child support simultaneously. But I don’t really think I can steer him differently.

    BV, we all have our own road to take. The reason that we are on this earth is so we can learn. Very very few men learn by listening; we learn by doing and by making mistakes, usually big ones. The very best that we can do for a brother who is in the middle of a big one is to listen to him when he needs to unburden himself. The other thing that I do now is to give them specific books. I gave a guy Rollo’s first book a few years ago. It sat unread on his shelf for a long time. Then one day he picked it up and began reading. He was ready.

    It is hard to listen to someone who is so negative, about something we think is alright. Often times people see enthusiasm for an issue as aggression, and just turn them off. I never really understood why people got so upset over getting divorced, until it happened to me.

    It is not so much that the divorce happened, because it is usually for the best. But about the realization that all those years were basically thrown away and lost forever.

    Or maybe even more depressing, is what could have been…

    In her credit card commercials, Jennifer Garner is wearing so much make-up that it looks like she’s wearing a Michael Meyers mask with just her sunken eyes visible to the camera.

    we’ve been keeping this sweet girl for about six/seven years now while her parents work. it’s morphed into a job my Oldest does, and the two, though ten years apart in age, have become very close. one of my greatest joys is hearing and watching her ‘parent’ this little girl with wisdom and truth not only from experience but that i’ve passed onto her. there are times i’ve asked her why she did some such thing with her, and my daughter responded, “I just did for her what you do for me.”

    I’ve noticed recently that’the wall’ can be quite swift.

    There are more central women characters in what passes for ‘watchable by men’ tv series nowadays. The actress needs enough acting chops to get the role, which means they’re late twenties / mid thirties (+ make-up) when they get the role. But even just a couple of years into the series they just don’t look nearly as hot anymore (despite the efforts of makeup).

    It can be really striking, and a little saddening as it’s part of every human’s experience, it’s just played out more dramatically and publicly for some.

    I listen to these videos rather than watch them and I listen at 1.25 – 1.5 speed. This might distort things a little but Stef really sounds dishonest in his video. A little bit to eager to push his ‘facts’. He sounds a little desperate that you swallow his codswallop. Very disappointing. The comments on his (Stef’s) video are fun though.

    But then John took a step that is becoming more common among students who believe they have been harmed by tough policies aimed at combating campus sexual assault. He hired a lawyer and took the university to court, maintaining his innocence and charging the school had denied him even the rudiments of due process, specifically the right to question or cross-examine his accuser.

    And in the preliminary legal skirmishing that has taken place so far, a federal appeals court thunderously rejected the university’s motion to dismiss John’s lawsuit.

    I was reading an acerbic essay by Raymond Chandler ((“The Maltese Falcon”, which screenplay (Chandler wrote the novel alone) I think he wrote with William Faulkner) on the archetype of the Hollywood ingenue. It bugged him because when he worked on a movie with such a “star”, he couldn’t develop her character, and create meaningful suspense, because the audience already knew that the movie couldn’t turn her bad or kill her off. He described them as pretty girls with two expressions and 17 costume changes.

    It amazed me, when I briefly moved in a Hollywood circle, how plain many movie stars are IRL. Some of this is intentional, as they are just showing their boho side, and revealing how they are just like the common proles who pay their salaries. But the woman I was seeing then was post-wall, in the sense that red pillers define the term, and the insight I had was that with an older woman, stress and fatigue add 10 years to their faces. (I’m sure it’s the same with men.) She had an impossibly difficult divorce underway. We got away for a weekend in Montreal and I photographed her face one morning after she had dressed and she looked 15 years younger, she looked like a 30-something Grace Kelly. Even she said, “I haven’t looked like that in years. Did you photoshop that?” Nope. Same effect with my ex-gf. Her facial appearance age goes up and down by 10-15 years, depending on what else is going on.

    Back to Chandler. Wish I could quote Chandler; his essays are really good. He had a nasty side that produces some real, and dark, humor. Once he was late on project, mostly because he was often a self-sabotaging, self-absorbed drunk of spectacular scale. The studio moved a doctor onto the studio lot, and advised him to keep the whiskey flowing, interrupted with various vitamin and drug injections. Chandler finished the script in two weeks without leaving his office.

    Just read a really good writeup over at Professor Doom’s and thought I’d share:

    ” I feel the need to highlight the madness here: this school has over 550 administrators; I openly defy the reader to identify any legitimate business which has more managers than new customers per year, particularly a business where very few customers continue to be so longer than a handful of years. Total attendance at this whole school will be around 2800 this year. I concede Evergreen might be a little top-heavy, but I assure the gentle reader many schools have far, far, too many admin in relation to the student base. Every attempt to address this problem so far has involved removing faculty and cutting faculty pay, and some schools are now considering cutting faculty pay to zero in an attempt to free up ever more money for administrative “leadership.” (snip)
    Any repercussions for them? If I lost half my class, admin would come down hard on me, making me take the blame for it even if it’s admin’s fault they lowered entrance standards to a ridiculous level. Admin failed here, so surely they’ll take the blame? Nope:

    An “independent” External Review Panel exonerated the president and administrators while blaming Evergreen’s woes on Bret Weinstein and ‘alt-right’ agitators…
    Evergreen had a day on campus where white people were asked to not show up (under strongly implied penalty of physical harm). Bret Weinstein, very liberal and generally supportive of identity politics, dared to say “hey, forbidding white people to come to campus is racist.” Naturally, the leadership there simply removed him from campus rather than consider any challenge to their ideology.

    i think i’m always amazed at how ‘regular’ people expect those in the spotlight to always be what they project themselves to be. i don’t understand people who become obsessed with celebrities or people in spotlight positions. i remember when Princess Di was killed … how many women deeply grieved. i mean, it was like they lost their mother or their sister kind of grieving. i did not get that. at all. one woman said to me, “If Princess Di can die, then I can, too.” i just looked at her … i mean, what do you say to a person who thinks like that? my mother apparently flipped out when Princess Di died – not that my mother ever did anything normal or healthy, but i was shocked she reacted that way.

    people are people. somewhere in there, they’re tangible, real, people.

    when my first husband died, his dad and brother did the eulogies at his funeral (both are retired pastors). their eulogies were cruel. mean spirited. thankfully, my girls were so caught up in their own grief most of it went over their head. it was so bad that several prominent people came up to apologize to us afterwards. one of those people was the COO where he worked. the interesting part of that is that i knew this (married) man from when my first husband and i were married, and he always had a thing for me. i always told my husband when he did things, and they were subtle yet defined. in the eulogies, his dad and brother lauded this man simply b/c of his position. as a person, he’s a man who does what is in his best interest despite the cost to others yet in a way that still makes him look good; iow, not a man i respect as a person. he was a pall bearer and was given a prominent place to also give a eulogy, which he did – a very kind and respectful eulogy. at the reception after the internment, he came through and gave me a long kiss on the cheek and a hug, which i know incensed my ex’s parents and brother. interesting that even a man like him, who looks out for himself first, took the time to apologize for their behavior b/c it was that bad. even he knew that my ex’s parents only cared about his title and not him as a person.

    Okay, one more write-up to share, this time the Diplomad:

    “We see pictures of marchers painting swastikas on American flags and then burning them, and waving flags of Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador at the head of long columns of marchers. These people apparently so hate racist, xenophobic America, and feel so patriotic about their home countries, that they are putting their lives at risk to head for the USA and get away from their non-sh*thole countries.
    The usual morons in the media are having a field day trying to blame these marches on Trump. I guess, in a way, Trump is to blame as under him the US economy rockets along and generates new jobs and rising wages for our workers, all of which serves as a magnet for the poor of the world. We should ask President Trump to stop winning for the USA, and that would, I assume, slow down the rate of marching. Right.
    In other words, elect the Democrats and that will make the USA a much less attractive place to live for everybody. We could do that . . . or we could do what we should have done long ago: build the wall; change the immigration laws so that you can’t come here to mooch or work illegally; and punish the traffickers. By traffickers, by the way, I include the governments of Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, and the funders of these marches. Do what I long ago suggested, that until these countries begin to act as “friends,” use our military and other elements of national power to shut the border to all traffic in goods and people; suspend issuance of visas to nationals of those countries; and, of course, drastically reduce those nations’ diplomatic and consular presence in the USA. Yank us out of NAFTA, and tell those American companies who build their factories in Mexico, that doing so is a bad bet on the future. Prosecute any American individuals or organizations involved in funding, organizing, or leading these marches.”

    On the nature of borders and sovereignty, the Swiss explained by The Ton:

    “Switzerland famously stays neutral during wars. To stay neutral, however, a nation must be fairly confident that no one could drag them into a war in the first place. So it is with Switzerland, whose military is composed of expert marksmen. In 1912, on the eve of World War I, Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany visited Switzerland to observe the Swiss military. The whole army only totaled half a million people, prompting Wilhelm to ask, “So if I send a million men, what do you do?” A Swiss officer replied, “Shoot twice and go home.””

    That’s what right she’s actually fighting for by supporting PP. The right for a woman to murder her own child in the womb. I don’t support the right of men to just go around hacking up other people to bits…therefore I don’t support women having that same right either.

    .@Stephanie said, re Hollywood types: Just like their romances… why don’t they tend to be strong and enduring?

    There are a few folks in Hollywood who get the leading roles in movies and television. And then there are thousands of folks a step or two down from that. Look at all of the people in the movies and television shows that are not the lead actors for that movie or show. But they are in show business – and many of them lead quite stable lives. They are not the ones who get all of the press attention. Attending to life and doing well doesn’t sell many magazines, so it tends to not get covered.

    There have been conversations here and close by about what a young man and young woman should do to find a partner. Discussions have covered the difficulties that introverts face in this process that extroverts don’t I’m linking to the story of one of Hollywood’s couples as they represent eight to ten such couples that we have known over the last twenty years or so here in the San Fernando Valley. We come across them at the hardware store, or the restaurant, or the local mall with their kids, etc. This story intersects Stephanie’s comments about “strong and enduring” and the earlier discussions about how a guy or a girl can snag a partner. Chip and Patty were parents at the same elementary school where daughter went. Chip and Patty’s daughter was in our daughter’s class and Patty was daughter’s Brownie and Girl Scout leader. Chip helped with other parents (many of whom played various roles in the “business”) on the playground after school. She was very grounded and, having met her parents, I know why. He a little less so because his parents went through a divorce at a vulnerable age for him. But pretty well grounded in spite of that, and because of the strength of Patty. They have both aged well, although they have aged, as is obvious in the picture at the link. This is the take-away shot from the article – showing the truth of you do whatever it takes to get their attention Figure out who is the introvert and who is the extrovert here.

    The band took a break soon after, but Esten was too nervous to approach her. So he walked past her about 15 to 20 times instead.

    Hanson caught on fairly quickly, and she eventually stuck out her hand and said, “Hi, my name is Patty.”

    Esten’s response?

    “I said, ‘I know you, you’ve got a boyfriend,’ and she said, ‘Not recently.’ And I was like, ‘Oh really?’ “

I met one stunt man (on the Transformers set….he drove Optimus Prime and took our boys for a ride in it…also Ratchet, but not Bumblebee he was under a tarp) who seemed to have a good marriage but typically it’s the whole culture that’s pretty toxic I think.

    Yet the investigation took an unusual turn when the assaults were also linked to a farm attack near the town. The 2017 contravention of the Animal Welfare Act saw sheep and goats “sexually targeted,” with DNA evidence left behind by the suspected perpetrator which was subsequently matched by the police database to the Freiburg attacker

    @Stephanie said: … suicide probably shouldn’t apply to that verse.

    Yeah, I agree. I was connecting it to the “no greater love …” part, not the suicide part. But I also was using it as a subtle reminder (for those knowledgeable enough to “get it” ) that Bible verses often get used in inappropriate contexts.

    But – to take the “no greater love” and the Bible verse to a different place – how about the guy who sees what is developing when his girl doesn’t and pushes her out of the way. He gets hit by the car and killed instead of her. That also is an example of “no greater love”. Some folks argue that that is also suicide, since he knew the likely outcome and did it anyway. Some times the appropriate application of a verse is not absolutely clear. Just making a small point here. Not trying to start a discussion.

    @Liz – there were many parents in that school who operated at various levels in the industry. In time, some divorced. Others didn’t. Just like in real life for the rest of us.

    One of my most fun memories was turning the school auditorium into a haunted house for the Halloween festival every year that we were there, and several after we moved on to Middle School (took daughter back and helped for a couple of years after we left; made her transition to new school not so abrupt). The dad of one of daughter’s classmates had access to the props department of several studios – was friends with the directors of them, since he built the sets for the movies. He put together some downright scary stuff, and I was glad that I (as one of many) got to help him.

    Another memory was when, in passing through television channels to see what was on, daughter suddenly called out “go back, that was xxx’s mom”. I backed up to what was a spanish station broadcasting to the spanish-speaking world their equivalent of our Grammy Awards Show. There indeed was xxx’s mom emceeing the show – dressed as glamorously as one would expect the female emcee of such a show to be. I did not recognize the lady on the screen since I had only ever seen her in jogging outfits delivering her son to, or picking him up from, school. To everyone watching, because of that one moment in time (although there were other such moments for her) she would forever be remembered as the Glamourous Lady. But in real life, on a daily basis, she was just xxx’s mom, showing up in her jogging outfit, often with no makeup – not glamorous at all.

    We are all of us just people, all possessing the same human condition. It’s just that some of us are better at doing some things than most can do, and so end up being noticed for that (whether good at taking drugs, or thugging, or blowing up enemy bridges, or being the lead character in a show).

    Speaking of drugs. He is 22, and the son of family friends. Last Saturday night (10-27-18), he and three of his male friends went separately to a Rave party somewhere here in the Southland. All four thought it would be fun, grownup and stuff, to pop an Ecstasy / MDMA / Molly pill. So they each did. On the way home, he didn’t feel so well. Then he felt really unwell, so found an all-night Urgent Care center. They promptly put him in the hospital, whereupon he went into a coma, and only woke up yesterday afternoon. Recognized mom and dad, but does not remember who he is or where he is or anything about his past. Hopefully that is temporary.

    His three friends were not so fortunate. They “soldiered on through the pain” as it were, and went home to “sleep it off”. All three went into comas in their sleep. As of now, all are in the hospital still in comas. One has had three heart attacks in their coma and another is in kidney failure. Don’t know about the third other than that he also is still in a coma.

    Says the parents to themselves – all of that work to get them safely to this point, and now …

    While Blasey Ford is unclear on the precise location of the claimed assault, Maryland police said they would fully investigate any allegations brought to them. Has that been done? The argument was that the multi-week delay in September was insufficient for a proper investigation of her claims. If that’s true, what has been done in October? Why have we heard nothing?

    If the media and other Democratic leaders wanted to have any credibility at all that the post-hearing release of multiple allegations wasn’t a pure political stunt for which they were willing to destroy a man, they’d continue to fight for justice every day, wouldn’t they? They would ask every Democratic candidate whether he believed Ford and supported impeaching Kavanaugh.

    If the Kavanaugh confirmation circus were about justice for his alleged victims, instead of about killing his nomination by any means, we’d still be getting updates on this story, wouldn’t we?

    So what does it mean that we’re not getting updates? What does it mean that Democrats are not being asked by mainstream journalists about whether they support Kavanaugh’s impeachment? Why have the media given up on investigating this story that they obsessed over for a few weeks in September and October?

    Whether an accusation is “found credible,” that’s a far cry from proven, a minor detail that seems to elude those who go with “believe” rather than prove before demanding summary execution. And Rubin denies having engaged in sexual misconduct.

    Mr. Rubin said in a statement after the publication of this article. “Specifically, I never coerced a woman to have sex in a hotel room. These false allegations are part of a smear campaign by my ex-wife to disparage me during a divorce and custody battle.”

    Regardless, Google remains a business, and had Rubin been fired and sent packing, would have not only found itself in the position of having the people who created huge things like Android see it as a dangerous place to be, but embroiled in nasty and expensive litigation.

    In settling on terms favorable to two of the men, Google protected its own interests. The company avoided messy and costly legal fights, and kept them from working for rivals as part of the separation agreements.

If they want the technology, and the money it brings, from people who fail to meet the current standards of sexual propriety, or at least are believed to fail, are they prepared to put feelings over profit? What’s a business, even one as fabulously successful as Google, to do these days?”
