How Much Power?


Deti wrote,

To boys and men: If you give me what I want, I might have sex with you. It’s a definite that if you do not give me what I want, I will not have sex with you. (This works with bottom 80% men).

So, how much power does this give the modern woman?  Probably, an awful lot.  Young (and older men) are compelled to interact/get in good with/try to have sex with women.  This makes for a lot of potential marks to be had.

What is the best way to exploit these marks?  What can be obtained from them?  The list is long: validation, excitement, tingles, sex (only when she has tingles, which few men provide), food, sympathy, garden variety attention, rides, housing, car repairs, gifts, jewelry, etc.  Probably most of these will come from the 80% who don’t generate tingles, as they implicitly understand that they have to try harder.

How is it done?  The secret is plausible deniability.  Sex is always maybe sorta / kinda implied, but never ever explicitly stated (at least for the 80%).  The thought is coyly dangled out there, but never delivered.  This can’t work with a fella for a while, until he decides to move on (though some never move on).  Then another mark (or set of marks) is found.

Do women really think about what they are doing?  Do they really plan it out?  Perhaps some do.  But probably for most it is like a fish swimming in water, they do not realize the environment that they are in.

Exit question: Who thought that it would be a good idea to give this kind of power to young  women?

    The United Kingdom is the 7th biggest trade partner with the US

    We export $56.2 billion

    We import $53 billion

    $109.2 billion total trade

    Net deficit about $3 billion….or practically neutral

    Trump claims that we could be doing three times as much trade together post a WTO Brexit

    So if my Math is right that is an increase of $100 -$150 billion in exports to the US

    1. Women today just want 3-4 things. Learn what they are, embody them, signal them, and if your deal is casual sex with women who are telling themselves, “he might be the one!”, it’s boom-boom time.

    I note, however, that the literature of cads is a literature of boredom.

    2. A good way to understand what women want, and generally require: Take some time off work. During the week, when previously you were working from dark until dark, watch what these women do and where they go. Then read their social media that details their higher, evolved purpose in a fallen world and let’s have lunch tomorrow to discuss! This was revelatory to me. Even dumpy middle class women are deadset on being “ladies who lunch.”

    3. Many such women are, actually, romantic and thoughtful people. And they are terrified of being some mare drafthorse working from dark until dark (man’s job only, hee-hee). Moreover, given the abuse and patriarchal suppression they have suffered all their lives, by golly, some man is going to make amends. The 80% of men sign up immediately. Then their wives hate them and for the rest, re-read The Deti.

    It was a revolution largely run by sociopaths. One, Robespierre, the “messianic schoolmaster,” saw it as an opportunity for the moral instruction of the nation. Everything would be politicized, no part of the citizen’s life left untouched. As man was governed by an “empire of images,” in the words of a Jacobin intellectual, the new régime would provide new images to shape new thoughts. There would be pageants, and new names for things. They would change time itself! The first year of the new Republic was no longer 1792, it was Year One. To detach farmers from their superstitions, their Gregorian calendar and its saints’ days, they would rename the months. The first month would be in the fall, named for the harvest. There would be no more weeks, just three 10-day periods each month.

    So here is our parallel, our hiccup. I thought of all this this week because I’ve been thinking about the language and behavioral directives that have been coming at us from the social and sexual justice warriors who are renaming things and attempting to control the language in America.

    There is the latest speech guide from the academy, the Inclusive Communications Task Force at Colorado State University. Don’t call people “American,” it directs: “This erases other cultures.” Don’t say a person is mad or a lunatic, call him “surprising/wild” or “sad.” “Eskimo,” “freshman” and “illegal alien” are out. “You guys” should be replaced by “all/folks.” Don’t say “male” or “female”; say “man,” “woman” or “gender non-binary.”

    In one way it’s the nonsense we’ve all grown used to, but it should be said that there’s an aspect of self-infatuation, of arrogance, in telling people they must reorder the common language to suit your ideological preferences. There is something mad in thinking you should control the names of things. Or perhaps I mean surprising/wild.

    I see in it a spirit similar to that of the Terror. There is a tone of, “I am your moral teacher. Because you are incapable of sensitivity, I will help you, dumb farmer. I will start with the language you speak.”

    An odd thing is they always insist they’re doing this in the name of kindness and large-spiritedness. And yet, have you ever met them? They’re not individually kind or large-spirited. They’re more like messianic schoolmasters.

    I also admire The Liz for her posture of No Politics at the Dinner Table.

    I usually work in the morning at a table in a quiet state park, and for the last month the ex-gf has been walking her dog there. (She’s a lady who lunches.) (Admittedly, it is her secret place and she introduced me to it.) But no interactions other than long looks at 100 meters which I do not initiate. Until Thursday when she plopped down across from me. First face-to-face conversation since last year.

    Asks me about this and that, I’m not talking much. This troubles her and she says (only for the 500th time I heard this in my life from every woman always) “Are you at me?” “No.” “Well, what?” “I think I confided and confessed to you far too much.” So and little crying and stuff and she seques into politics and asks me about Trump or some shit, and I just said, “C., if I’m going to talk to you once a year, it’s not going to be about politics.”

    My broad observation is that people find it weird that I’ll talk sola scriptura before I talk politics. Throws them off balance. So I’d like to hear what Liz’ sister-in-law says privately about Liz, being thwarted in her efforts to spew political invective all over the mashed potatoes. And it doesn’t sound like SIL is really prepared to talk Catholic v. Reformed Christianity.

    In re: FB’s Peggy Noonan quote:

    I actually loathe PN as example A in why I am not a Republican. She’s talking at length and oh so deeply about Ropespierre and how personal language and lives are corrupted by political mad dogs. I thought she was going to orgasm on national TV when she reported on Obama’s inauguration.

    “The Personal is Political” is a feminist premise that people like Noonan embrace and have promoted for 30 years. Hillary Clinton is its avatar, in my opinion. If PN had integrity she wouldn’t use Ropespierre as an example, but Hillary. But she has dinner with Hillary, and Hillary friends, so … NO WAY, PEOPLE.

    There’s an anglo saxonism for what I think of PN, but I’ve already used up my quota of one for the day.

    Speaking of Anglo Saxon language, there was a clip of Boris explaining Churchill’s rhetorical brilliance (which is to say, I suspect, Boris’ objective). I think CdO linked to it, but perhaps not.

    Anyhow, he noted how, when Churchill had wound up and was about to launch a line no one will ever forget, he disdained the frou-frou Norman words and went straight Anglo Saxon. Fascinating colloquy. Example, and I misquote, Churchill:

    “Never (nev-uh) have so many owed so much to so few.”

    I think they want 3-4 things as outlined in the manosphere, or Jane Austen. (Gee, why has Jane Austen endured???)

    1.To be desired, which is romance novel-speak for that plus serious boom-boom, by a man they consider just slightly out of their league. [hypergamy]

    2. To be envied by the social milieu (female cohort, community envy and approval in mate selection). [Haha bitches I won and you didn’t!]

    3. To be secure (duh, money; protected physically; feel safe). [hypergamy]

    4. To be interested (intrigued, challenged, impressed) in what a man does or will do. [hypergamy]

    About zero percent of this, other than, perhaps, the sexual desirability part, is NOT PERMITTED by feminism.

    I don’t care what the women say about this, because i don’t listen to what women say they want. I know that if I put those features or promises in an online profile, I’ll have to delist it in a week because I won’t keep everyone straight.

    Oh my generation? Yes, I think so. If you watch the film (made in ’69) it isn’t anything like a superhero movie. It’s obvious who the good guys are but it’s not jingoistic*. It portrays brave men (and a few women) in desperate straits and their narrow victory.

    It really is a good film. Lots of stars.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Britain_(film)

    The film is generally faithful to events and although merging some characters, it sticks to the orthodox view – that the Germans threw away strategic advantage by switching bombing from RAF airfields to London in revenge for RAF raids on Berlin.

    Some later scholarship has cast doubt on one or another aspect of the orthodox view, arguing either: (a) that the switch to bombing London was made not for reasons of revenge but because the Germans thought they had already defeated RAF Fighter Command or (b) that accelerated British aircraft production meant that the prospect of a German victory was never likely (this view seems doubtful, in part because the issue was the number of pilots).[25]

    (* just in case the word hasn’t spread from the UK; Jingoistic behaviour shows a strong and unreasonable belief in the superiority of your own country.)

    Captain John Niel Randle VC (22nd December 1917 – 6th May 1944), B Company, 2nd Battalion, Royal Norfolk Regiment.

    On the 4th May, 1944, at Kohima in Assam, a Battalion of the Royal Norfolk Regiment attacked the Japanese positions on a nearby ridge. Captain Randle took over command of the Company which was leading the attack when the Company Commander was severely wounded. His handling of a difficult situation in the face of heavy fire was masterly and although wounded himself in the knee by grenade splinters he continued to inspire his men by his initiative, courage and outstanding leadership until the Company had captured its objective and consolidated its position. He then went forward and brought in all the wounded men who were lying outside the perimeter. In spite of his painful wound Captain Randle refused to be evacuated and insisted on carrying out a personal reconnaissance with great daring in bright moonlight prior to a further attack by his Company on the position to which the enemy had withdrawn. At dawn on 6th May the attack opened, led by Captain Randle, and one of the platoons succeeded in reaching the crest of the hill held by the Japanese. Another platoon, however, ran into heavy medium machine gun fire from a bunker on the reverse slope of the feature.
    Captain Randle immediately appreciated that this particular bunker covered not only the rear of his new position but also the line of communication of the battalion and therefore the destruction of the enemy post was imperative if the operation was to succeed. With utter disregard of the obvious danger to himself Captain Randle charged the Japanese machine gun post single-handed with rifle and bayonet. Although bleeding in the face and mortally wounded by numerous bursts of machine gun fire he reached the bunker and silenced the gun with a grenade thrown through the bunker slit. He then flung his body across the slit so that the aperture should be completely sealed. The bravery shown by this officer could not have been surpassed and by his self-sacrifice he saved the lives of many of his men and enabled not only his own Company but the whole Battalion to gain its objective and win a decisive victory over the enemy.

    Boris Johnson is preparing a No Deal information blitz to make sure Britain is ready to leave the EU – with or without an agreement – on October 31.

    The new Prime Minister is planning to show Brussels he is serious about taking Britain out of the bloc without a deal by ramping up preparations.

    The information push will see an everything-you-need-to-know leaflet sent to 27 million households and the broadcast of TV ads as part of a campaign which is expected to cost £10 million
