Young Men — Understand Value


One thing that I have improved my skills with respect to is understanding value.  Value in what we buy, what we do, what we might bring to an employer, what others might bring to us.  Most people really don’t understand it.  It is for the most part never really taught.

So comprehending value can obviously increase your life satisfaction.  This would seem obvious.  So how to do it?  The first thing to do is allocate time to think about it.  The second thing to do is to pay attention.  Ask yourself if the present things that you are doing bring value to yourself.  If you do not clearly answer yes, then maybe you should consider, and maybe even try other things.  Wash, rinse, repeat.  It is not overly difficult, but one needs to be honest with oneself.

One more thing — being of value to others can be satisfying and profitable.  One needs to get value in return, which with the right people involved, can happen.  Often one gets more in return (often through synergy) than one contributes.  Look for opportunities here.  As the counterpoint to this — trying to suck other people dry does not always work for you (and others) in the short term, and most assuredly in the long term.

  1. Sapwny and Farm Bloy “Young Men — Understand Value” is good advice. I say to young fellas look for a value man. Get a job. There is lots of jobs. Where there is lots of jobs there is a value man if you keep your eyes open. When you see him you might get an opportunity to be respectful to him and family and friends. Never stop looking for value men. You might get an opportunity to do odd jobs for a value man without pay. Learning from him is the best pay you will get in your life. Learn by how he treats people and talks and does stuff. If he gives advice write the date on the wall. Listen with all your brain cells and ask questions. Don’t believe the bullshit about white men. I met the boss and my life changed from bad to good. A value man will help you if he knows you want him to help you. It must come from you not him. You must want it 100% or don’t waste his time.

    The modern obsession with finding or causing division between people seems very odd to me. My generation was brought up to find value wherever it was. Not saying that things were just peachy, just that things were better and improving.

    If there’s one group that I hope find value in the blog, it’s young men. So thanks for the great news, Tom.

    but that’s not the end by a long chalk

    Sandmann’s attorney, Todd McMurtry, told Fox News that lawsuits against “as many as 13 other defendants will be filed in 30 to 40 days.”

    Among them: ABC, CBS, The Guardian, The Huffington Post, NPR, Slate, The Hill and Gannett, which owns the Cincinnati Inquirer, according to McMurtry. Additionally, separate lawsuits against the Washington Post and NBC have already been filed.

    Britain’s Laurence Fox is the new Ricky Gervais, talking back to woke culture

    If you thought Ricky Gervais was great, you need to meet British actor Laurence Fox. He became an overnight sensation in Britain for stating truths that the bullying woke scolds have forced people to deny for decades now.

    It all started on a BBC show in England called Question Time. Once a week, five or so public figures sit on a panel in front of a carefully selected audience that, nowadays, is meant to represent the entire identity-politics spectrum. Audience members can ask questions of the panel.

    You thought that you loved him already and then you read this

    Laurence Fox has revealed he once broke up with a girlfriend for being “too woke” and said women like her are “primed” to be victims.

    Speaking on “The Delingpod“ podcast, the British actor explained they broke up because of their opposing views on the 2019 Gillette advert that addressed toxic masculinity.

    “I don’t know how we ended up together,” Fox said. “It was a very short relationship. We were walking down the road and she was talking about how good the Gillette advert was. I just looked at her and went, ‘Bye. Sorry, I can’t do this with you.’”

    Fox added that he and his ex also argued because she was a vocal supporter of Christine Blasey Ford, who in 2018 accused the then-US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in high school in 1982. Kavanaugh denied the allegations.​

    The actor recalled being told at the time to “believe the victim”.

    “No, you don’t believe the victim,” he said. “That’s not how it works. You listen to the victim. The victim’s evidence is examined and a jury of their peers makes that decision.”

    Elsewhere in the podcast, Fox offered his thoughts on the #MeToo movement.

    Granted the same thing goes on in so many Catholic churches, and the way they treat the victims is just insane.

    More from her article,

    “In the past 20 years, Catholic orders in the United States have spent $4 billion to investigate and litigate abuse claims and pay settlements to victims. That’s $4 billion from collection plates that is going into the black hole of the church’s problem with pedophilia. And most of that expense has accrued in only the last few years, meaning the increased cost is probably going to be exponential from this point on.

    It’s not coming from the pope, who in many cases now has acted to shelter and even promote deviant clergy. Heck, altar boys were even getting abused in St. Peter’s Basilica. That’s how unserious the Vatican is about abuse.”

    Stephanie, it came from the top that such kids (there were boys too) were just ‘making a lifestyle choice’. Obviously a shit argument as they were, in many cases, TOO YOUNG TO LEGALLY CONSENT TO SEX. Would be very happy to see the return of capital punishment and trials for the rapists and the legal system from top to bottom.

    A few days ago there was mention of the same type of rape epidemic in the States. I’m sorry that I didn’t copy across a link at the time but the subject just pisses me off too much. Also, I’m not interested in competing in whose country’s legal system is more shagged, either as wanting to win or lose.

    First, however, since CNN apparently undertook its cheerleading for Warren in order to declare its feminist bona fides, I would like to pose a few questions as a sort of prolegomenon, what Kierkegaard, in another context, called a “preliminary expectoration.” 1) Why are feminists so unpleasant? 2) Why do they insist on whining instead of getting on with the task at hand? 3) Why do they tend to blame other people for their failures?

    Spawny, again, I’m just so sorry. I know they go after boys, too, just makes me sooooo angry and emotional I can’t dwell on it too too much (but I HAVE read some of the actual reports from the counselors who had to help the victims…. and it was just so traumatizing even to the social workers who had to hear them out!!!!). God I hate them.

    I really wish the general public would have gotten so outraged they would have gone through the cities and purged them (with very public hangings). And then ran the rest of them (and their entire culture) out of Britain, Ireland, etc. until there was a massive, “war,” to push them out. But all that’s fantasy unfortunately.

    I don’t know what actually happened regarding parents. I know that some fathers were told they’d be charged with a hate crime (higher sentence) if they accused the community in question of harbouring child rapist gangs. Perhaps some did something that the MSM just obfuscated the reasons for. Given our MSM, I absolutely wouldn’t rule it out.
    I won’t be speculating about my actions if I might have had affected kids but I’ve never lived in an area, or had kids, where that was likely. But I note your described scenario]

    And yes, we do have similar problems (depends on which cultural group you’re talking about, too) and which area etc.

    For where I am… it’s the cartel/illegal Mexican and Central American criminals who are regularly abducting kids. It happens almost every week or other week, we get alerts that warn us another child was abducted.

    We here constantly (almost every single week) of another kidnapping attempt of a kid… where we used to live (which wasn’t a bad neighborhood really, in a better area – or supposed to be), there were regular attempts of people trying to steal kids from moms who were slightly distracted… sometimes even from the kid’s own front yard.

    There’s lots of footage also from security cameras that come out often that shows attempted kidnappings in Wal-marts, grocery stores, etc. It’s gotten to where it’s easier to just order groceries online.

    And there are huge child-sex rings in the south that the police are constantly finding and freeing and breaking up. But usually they’re taken across the border and never seen or heard from again.

    OP: “One more thing — being of value to others can be satisfying and profitable. One needs to get value in return, which with the right people involved, can happen.”

    On reflection, while I took this state of equity as a given growing up and well into marriage, what I have largely experienced in life are the conditions of being the draft horse, the strong horse, the reckless crazy, the creative keystone, an ATM, a self-abnegating emotional resource. None of those conditions exist on the two-way street FB describes. Since it’s so common in my life I concluded I was enabling it. Hence the red pill conversion. It’s not a pleasant feeling to see former intimates as mere Extractors. But many are.

    I’ve had a couple of health issues recently and my oldest friend (we met at age five) has leapt to assist. Since life is habit, it’s a challenge to either accept his concern, or convey adequate appreciation. But only an idiot would reject the former and not attempt the latter.

    This Laurence Fox guy is certainly interesting. Perhaps he and Gervais are so clear about the present bullshit because Britain is a place where child rape is not to be spoken of (if committed by brown people against white children), but being a meanie on Facebook will get you jailtime. I called a guy “Sugartits” the other day, and all that happened was the blog banned me; nobody wielding handcuffs arrived at my door.

    I posted this at Dalrocks since has has been absent a month.

    Given that it has been all been said before; we know what caused it, what it means and where it is going, are we all starting to pack it in?

    Ian Ironwood was the first over at the great Red Pill Room, then Mgtow Messenger aka Lazarus on ytube left, Black Pidgeon has slowed, Miggy and TFM are slowed or just reading news articles.

    Now Dalrock the manosphere’s resident statistian goes a month?
    Even Larry at Fabius Maximus, brilliant in analysis has never really offered solutions besides the obvious.

    Which is let it play out. Men getting more and more realistic and disenfranchised. Withdrawing their individual love, attention, protection, support, revenue. Not as a movement to be countered but as individuals each coming independently to the same conclusion.

    As they do society slows, decays, stops innovating, has less to be wasted or consumed. And the lack then forces those who caused it to either do it for themselves or reconsider the needs of those who formerly provided. Hopefully before things go too far down the rabbit hole to violence and collapse.

    Zfg and mgtow and black pill and where are the good men are all variations on the same theme.
    Known, understood, foreseen.

    Is this why so many great voices are self silencing?

    I’ve just sorta come to a somewhat similar conclusion myself. Because my main goal as a husband starting out was, “Don’t be my like father (also, don’t be like her father)” I have been doing the lion’s share since Day One and so I’ve now come to believe that not only did I allow it, I unintentionally encouraged the situation I’m in now. Even when the amount of work/effort wasn’t that much, I still found myself basically doing it all. Sometimes I would wake up a little and say things like, “Maybe you could do X every once and while.” This was met with responses such as, “What, you’ve been keeping count?” Or maybe, “Hey, you know I “clean the house once a week.” Yeah, once a week every fiscal quarter you run the vacuum for 10 minutes. Huzzah.

    Lately I’ve developed a new protocol. Leave a dirty pair of socks on the floor of he bathroom for two weeks? I throw them away. Leave a cup on the nightstand or in the bathroom for weeks or months? In the trash. It’s really just little piddly stuff. On the big issues, we’re so dissimilar that I just don’t care anymore. She gave money to Planned Parenthood last week; she might as well have given it to ISIS as far as I’m concerned.

    Nope, exactly the opposite. What we see happening is the criminalization of men doing less than what the feminist, anti-white state requires. Men (but especially White men) voting for their interests is RACISSS and must not be allowed. That men were actually hit hardest and still haven’t recovered from the last recession and continue to lose ground is not a story in any way what so ever. Fucking gulags are back in the news! Holy shit! Does anyone think that any member of The Squad is anti-gulag? Nancy Pelosi? Anyone still actually vying for the Dem nomination? Bullshit. Off to the camps with you!

    Just saw your bolded comment Spawny, from my understanding, which of course I could be wrong, but they purposefully went after vulnerable kids who came from impoverished families or areas like that. In those areas, and I know Stefan M as remarked on this too, those areas are almost like urban jungles of crime anyway and very scary for kids to be growing up in as he did.

    So they preyed upon the easily preyable. Kids with single moms, kids that were maybe not headed toward an easy life anyway, but seriously got the worst deal in having those gangs move in their neighborhoods.

    Former VP Joe Biden: ‘All white guys are just basically, they don’t give a damn about women’

    Way to not stereotype based upon race and sex, there Joe!

    But, due to the fact that every race and mix except White men are immune from criticism and responsibility for their deeds, I am now becoming more likely to focus on helping my White male brothers, since anybody with half a brain intuitively knows that White men are, and have been, the cornerstone of our civilization. Helping empower justice loving men of all races builds civilization. And any justice minded man can surely see that the currently promoted discrimination against White men is both unjust and detrimental to our society. And Women…LOL…they are not cared about because they’ve proven themselves to be worthless bitches. When they get back to being the reverent helpers that they were created to be, then they’ll be worth giving a shit about, but not until then. For now they just need to be subjugated and put back in their place, where they can be, and ignored or shamed where they are too stubborn, brazen, and legally protected, to be properly dealt with. The women of this generation are mostly ingrates. You will actually get shit on for any help you give them. No matter what you do for the ingrates, it is never enough for the self-worshipping goddesses. The sluts can sell their bodies if they want help, but since I’m not a whoremonger, the disrespectful cunts have nothing I need, and they either refuse to be worthwhile company, or else don’t even know how to be anything but a self-absorbed pains in the ass. You’re right about me Joe Biden: I no longer give a damn about women. They have chosen enmity with my God and I. And God has prepared a flaming hell where to burn those worthless unrepentant whores for all of eternity. Amen! If women aren’t adorning themselves with shamefacedness, and seriously ashamed of the worthless cunts that they all are being, then they aren’t yet repentant. That’s a fact. And I apologize if I inadvertently have sugarcoated that due to my blue-pill upbringing.

Howard Hughes could not have made 1917, as it has only one “action!” and one “cut!”. I know nothing about movie making, but that’s the way it looked to me. The entire movie is one unbroken “scene” (not the right word?) following one soldier from beginning to end. It certainly held my interest, but as I say, I’m no expert.

    In “Winesburg, Ohio” (commonwealthians: Sherwood Anderson, seminal American short fiction writer in early 20th century, perhaps the bridge from Tolstoy (Turgenev, Leskov) and Hemingway) (Hemingway idolized Anderson, which we know because he shortly turned on him in a vicious way) … Okay, in “Winesburg, Ohio”, Anderson develops the notion of “the grotesque.” In Winesburg, an unimportant rural village in Ohio, there are men who are dominated by a single idea, a single condition, and cannot escape it. Their being frozen in that one rigid idea, for all of their lives, renders them “grotesques”.

    Similarly, IRL, we know people whose every word or observation is predictable because SAME AS YESTERDAY.

    The internet can be pretty good at fostering grotesques because it scales with so little friction and can be a force multiplier of tired perspectives.

    BV, to be honest, I’m a little vague on who’s who in other countries. I recognise the names but, apart from Trump, Pelosi, Bern, Fauxcahontas etc, I don’t really connect the anecdotes about the individuals. So, for example, I recognise the name Schiff but not really exactly what shit he’s been up to. I’m kind of waiting for the public trials for a summary of their activities. Same as over here TBH. Bit disappointed in The Donald in that we haven’t seen any. Sure has been an epidemic of resignations, early retirements and suicides over your way though. I’m a bit jealous of that.

    But I am also amazed about the bad judgement too, I mean, look at Prince ‘Randy’ Andy. He even hung around with Weinstein after the guy was charged and convicted of disgusting crimes. And I wonder whether the leverage over his activities have been part of why the Queen has been so fucking poor at preventing our country being signed up to the EU counter to the oath she took when ascending to the throne. The globalists have been able to lean on her.

    I watched First Man (Armstrong up to and including Apollo 11) and Apollo 13 back-to-back last night. I’ma going to circle back on FarmBoy’s review at some point but I must say that I didn’t find FM very engrossing, I did happily finish it though. Yesterday I linked to a history video of Neil’s bouncing off the atmosphere (the first scene in FM) and found that far more impressive than just a video of extreme turbulence. FM showed that he did something dangerous, the history video described what was dangerous and how skilled he was at landing the plane safely (not in serious depth, but enough detail for a pleb like me).

    Apollo 13 was a far better film, I reckon. FM kept ramming in scenes to show emotions (his emotions, his apparent lack of emotions and the emotions of those about him), I found them quite tedious at times. A13 didn’t really show the emotional side all that much but was a far more emotionally engaging film because of it. To me anyway.

    A13 showed Armstrong as rather a nice guy distracting Nanna from the horrors of the A13 events, which didn’t really mesh with the man shown in A11. I’m assuming that that was real and accurate.

    The Queen appears to have taken all the shiny things about being married to Harry away, as far as she’s able, but not burnt any bridges with him. He’s still an HRH, he’s just required not to use it. In case ‘she’ uses in in some grubby marketing scheme like some cheap ho might (one assumes). I hear that their website still refers to them as royals (I’m sure that they’ll be updating it toot der sweet).

    It wasn’t exactly a soap opera but the handling of the emotion side of the movie did nothing for me. That actor does seem to have trouble in that area (The Driver was it?) but it was a problem with the movie, not just with him. They didn’t seem to be able to decide whether he was emotional (but hid it) or unemotional (the vast majority of the time). The wife also seemed rather a cold fish most of the time although more human than him.

    And the fundamental problem was that they portrayed what he did as dangerous rather than why he was extremely skilled doing complex things in dangerous scenarios. Lots of extreme turbulence in the X15 and the Agena rendezvous stuff but not really what was going wrong and how he figured it out and saved the situation.

    It’s not all bad though. It’s not a bad film. Just not to my taste. A13 was (I’ve watched it a fair few times).

    Quick update for those who might care.

    Right now we are scheduled for mediation for the second week of February. THANK GOD!

    First week of the year I met with my associate attorney and senior attorney, senior attorney has been doing family law in my county for 53 yrs…The man charges $750/hr and he was worth every penny. He told me he has won more custody cases for men than any other human in Texas, ever. And he told me I’m not even a long shot with Crazy. So there we are. Child support is going to happen for the next 4.5yrs.

    During that 1hr meeting I had a number of large red pill suppositories inserted into my rectum. Needless to say at the time it was extremely uncomfortable but at the end of the day gave me peace.

    Oh I’m estimating this divorce has already cost me $72K and we haven’t even went to trial.

    “I posted this at Dalrocks since has has been absent a month.”

    Occam’s Razor, he’s just taking a break. Starting it at Christmas is good confirmation.

    “Given that it has been all been said before; we know what caused it, what it means and where it is going, are we all starting to pack it in?”

    Several answers, the main one of which is you should always have a backup institution ready.

    1. Blogging takes a lot of passion to do consistently. Free time helps, too. As established bloggers run out of new content or move on to other, probably more rewarding interests, their blogs dry up.

    Related, burnout. Most people aren’t interesting enough to talk for years about one topic. I expect Dalrock is weary of talking about chivalry and hasn’t found a new focus yet.

    It must suck to be a statistician these days. The government is cooking the books faster than McDonald’s can cook your dinner.

    2. The situation is hellish. There are no solutions. One must unplug as needed for sanity’s sake.

    3. Any solutions, once discovered, will probably not involve Internet discussion. It’s a great forum but won’t ever keep the rain off your head.

    “And the lack then forces those who caused it to either do it for themselves or reconsider the needs of those who formerly provided. Hopefully before things go too far down the rabbit hole to violence and collapse.”

    They’re parasites. They CAN’T stop themselves. The frog and the scorpion.

  88. Well, 1917 didn’t suck. Again, I concur with The Drinker’s review, though he liked it more than I did. I liked the same things and had the same problems he did, with maybe one of two more issues. My oldest, the Great War historian, liked it as well, also more than I. He was impressed with the level of correct detail, though he agreed with me (and Drinker) that there are some plot issues.

    The single take “gimmick” gets to be a little wearying, but it’s quite well done. I was tense for the entire remainder of the film after they go over top the first time. It’s not Gallipoli, but it’s good. Speaking of which, I thought the music was distracting in a few scenes but otherwise unremarkable. Can’t say that about Gallipoli.

It will happen when enough are on the sidelines that the basic consumables of society: food, security, infrastructure, goods are no longer available in the minimum quantities. Only then will the woke in power change.

    Even the chinese and soviet tried forced plant labour. It doesnt work.

    And interestingly, in all the collapses it was always creed against creed, state v state, class v class. Never has it been women versus men. Never before: i hate men , i dont need men, we are better off without them.

    I don’t know, Horseman but my theory is there’s only a finite amount of energy one can muster up, and black pill type forums don’t really seem like a place to fuel up on positive energy, only negative. In short, over time, I think too much time in those places and you either tire of it, or turn into Fuzzy.

    yes. it’s not that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. who cares if you’re stronger if you don’t use your strength to benefit others? it’s that life is hard, and it either makes you bitter or more compassionate. bitterness is a cruel master; it isolates you and repels people away from you. compassion doesn’t mean you don’t have firm boundaries and don’t allow people to hurt you again, rather it means you become like Cill and BV and Ton and other men out here – you take the pain and use it to help someone else.

    There really is zero value in marriage for men these days.

    Not exactly. Marriage is still God’s holy institution.
    There is zero value in today’s women, and yoking yourself unequally to one of these unrepentant whores brings you a mess of trouble with basically zero value gained in return.

    1 Corinthians 7:28 But if you marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. Yet such will have trouble in this life, and I am trying to spare you.

    Today “Christian” women are often the worst. They have been falsely taught that they are the image of God, and so they believe themselves to be goddesses. So nothing you can ever do will be good enough for these deluded and “divinely-entitled” ingrates, and they expect you to go about shamefaced for the sin of being a man. Their inversion of reality is complete. When in fact:

    1 Corinthians 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

    Men alone are the image of God.

    1 Timothy 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. 9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

    Women alone are told to adorn themselves with shamefacedness.

    Psalm 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. 7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

    Men are gods, yet die like princes. Women are not goddesses, nor do any gods die like princesses.

    Colossians 2:9 For in Him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily,

    Jesus Christ, exhibited the entirety of God’s image in his masculine earthly form. There is no feminine aspect to God. nor should we blasphemously effeminize our God and Father who tells us that He will send the effeminate to hell for that very abomination of effeminizing His image. The Bible never says the butch go to hell. LOL Because rebellious women only degrade “the glory of man” when abandoning their intended feminine aspects.

    The solution really is as simple as us all repenting and going back to that foundational truth from God, and building on the foundation laid by Jesus Christ who chose Paul to be His apostle, and write that divine truth for us to obey.

    We haven’t even taken the first step in fighting Feminism! Repentance must start in the church. If the men of the church can’t even get the women of the church to submit to honoring God by praying with their heads covered, as God instructed, then the so much else is merely building on sand. First we must believe that Christ was the fullness of God bodily, even without a vagina and succulent nipples, or anything else that makes a woman. We must believe that Jesus Christ was “the express image of His person“(Hebrews 1:3) even though he was only male, and the only begotten Son, without any sister.

    Over 1600 years ago the church of Rome began to be the great whore, an earthly kingdom, and a false church, that began teaching women that they imaged God, and that Mary was coredemptrix and coregent, equal with Christ. All of that needs to be undone to get back to worshipping God in truth, and not blasphemously effeminizing God. To make women into the matchless image of God, makes women then by default equal to men, which makes their subjection unjust and turns marriage into slavery. Women being the image of God is the satanic lie that is the foundation for all of Feminism. If women are not in the image of God, but men are, then the woman should serve the man, and reverence the man, and submit to the man in everything, Etc.

    Seriously, The first thing Christian men need to do is take back their birthright, the image of God, and with it their divine right to rule their wives, and to lead them spiritually. Otherwise why should women follow if they believe they’re just as much the representative of God? That’s where we’re at. We need to take away the image of God from women, which takes away “equality”, and then we have a moral foundation for taking from women all the God given rights of men, that women are now usurping. Then once we’ve gotten our right to lead and the sole right to vote back, we can outlaw women murdering our babies, frivolous divorce, and fat chicks wearing Spandex. Am I right?

    OT: Like most conservative airline folks, we love the union…in general.
    But there are some real drawbacks.
    1: The guy in charge of this union is very divisive. They’re now attempting to get separate hotels for flight attendants and pilots. I think this will create an “us” against “them” atmosphere. Will it solve some problems? Probably, but it will create more. And they’ve been keeping it a secret so it’s just part of the rumor mill now.

    2: The buy in charge of this union is very secretive.
    “We’ve heard you all loud and clear that you’re happy with paying more dues to the union…”
    Really?!? When was this information distributed for anyone’s perusal? Another one was sueing Boeing. The union did this without telling anyone.
    Reality check: If this were the military we’d be getting half the number of MAXes five years from now, for five times the price.

    Mike has a longstanding motto which is, “you have to be willing to die on your sword”.
    The airline mentality is 180 out from that. They plan their future 401k twenty years in advance, and then they’re mad if the MAXes are grounded and they’ll only have 4.2 million in their retirement accounts instead of the projected 4.6 million. That’s why they are suing Boeing, projected lost future earnings potential. It’s kind of a foul, IMO.

    The Horseman raises a good point.

    I’m not sure there is anything more to say. I have been repeating myself for about 5 years now.

    My only question is how much more of the present situation are men going to take before the lid blows off.

    The current society is sitting on a slowly boiling cauldron of resentment and anger, on both sides, men and women. It’s social, economic, political, religious… it’s everything. But I’m just focusing on men right now, because that’s what has been raised by Horseman’s comment and what everyone else is riffing on.

    Society continues to tighten thumbscrews on men. Women are doing more and more and more to push men out of every aspect of society. It’s getting to the point where it is now illegal to be an unattractive man. It’s definitely to the point where unattractive men who try to act like attractive men are severely punished socially and professionally. Unattractive men, loser men, men down on their luck or just down in life, men who don’t have much, uneducated or not much going for them, just get the ever loving shit kicked out of them socially and professionally.

    We now have virtual gulags in the US. You can’t even really be a MGTOW. If you’re male and unpopular or unattractive, they won’t leave you alone. You won’t be put in prison. But society will make you a pariah. No one will associate with you. No one will buy or sell from you. No one will employ you. No one will rent housing to you. The government will not help you. The prison you’re put in has no walls or bars. No, it’s just been made so you cannot work, you cannot earn a living, you cannot find a place to live, you cannot obtain goods or services.

    We now live in a society where it’s become illegal for unattractive men even to speak to women. Women have actually gotten our entire society to keep unattractive men away from them in every situation. Women have also convinced society to clear the way for attractive men to approach them. Women have further gotten men to create a system whereby they have unlimited, unfettered access to as many attractive men as they have time and inclination for.

    Society has done more and more to wrap women in virtual bubble wrap, where they are cushioned and protected from every adverse consequence. Unattractive men are becoming the little bubbles in that wrap, absorbing the blows and many times rupturing.

    My question is this: How much more of this are men going to take? How much further down are we as a society going to push them? How much more opportunity are we going to foreclose to them?

    How long do you expect average men to earn 500% of what they need when it is simply taken away at the whim of an unhaaaaaappy woman?

    How many men will work that hard when they have no incentive at all to do so beyond providing for their own needs? Why should he buy a house when all he needs is a one bedroom? Why should he earn extra money to spend on women when for all intents and purposes it is cost and risk prohibitive even to approach women? Men are risking their entire lives, jobs, and assets with women now. The risks are so incredibly onesided and the costs of loss so astronomically high that it’s increasingly becoming just not worth it.

    How much worse will it get before we get to a critical mass of men dropping out leading to economic ripple effects?

    What, do we think women are going to take up the slack? What, women are going to fix cars and roads and collect garbage now? Women en masse will become truck drivers and engineers and IT people? Really? Sheeeit. For the most part we can’t even keep women working in my office. They have babies and take 3 months off. They have babies and quit. They actually work maybe 4 hours a day, when they are here.

    How many more shoves are men going to absorb before they just walk away? Right now, most men are finally breaking down in their mid to late 30s and wifing up some ex carousel rider who needs that MRS. title. We’re getting to an average age at first marriage of 29 for women and 31 or 32 for men. It just keeps getting pushed up and up.

    How much more of this can we take?

    And interestingly, in all the collapses it was always creed against creed, state v state, class v class. Never has it been women versus men. Never before: i hate men , i dont need men, we are better off without them.

    I don’t know that it’s women vs. men. It’s progressivism/liberalism vs. traditionalism. I’m probably using the wrong words. I don’t know.

    I have long been saying that the current zeitgeist is “women disrespect men, men hate women”. No, women don’t “submit” to all men. But women understood very well that if a man really wanted to, he could do some serious damage to her. So she respected that.

    No, men didn’t “Love” all women in the sense of fucking them all or taking them as wives. But men appreciated women. Nice to look at. Mostly pleasant to be around. Refreshing. Softer. Not as coarse or unrefined. 50 or 60 years ago, most women weren’t outward public bitches like they are now. They were mostly nice, or at least, not openly bitchy in public. They were not throwing punches at men. They were not brandishing weapons at men. They were not marching in public talking about how terrible and awful men are.

    I think it’s worse than women saying collectively “we hate men”. It’s women saying “we don’t respect men”. . It’s open hostility toward men. It’s open, public, explicit disrespect toward men.

    That’s a problem, because men don’t mind hate. You can hate me all you want. You can be indifferent to me and not care all you want.

    Men very, very much mind disrespect. You WILL NOT disrespect me.

    And men have been taking a lot of disrespect from women.

    No, what scares me is that we are headed to men saying “we hate women”. “Hate” as in “going to just stand by while Bad Men do whatever they want to you”. Hate as in “if I can get away with it I will do whatever I want to you”.

    Here’s some truth and it’s been said before: The only reason women aren’t getting raped and murdered en masse is because 96% or so of men restrain themselves from doing so. And what restrains most men from doing so is the knowledge that stronger and more powerful men will kill him if he does so.

    If he really wanted to and decided to do it, the average man could rape and kill the average woman, and there is nothing that average woman could do about it unless she has a gun and really knows how to use it. Most average men have the brute strength to kill most average women.

    That’s why “we men hate women” scares the shit out of me. Because that inches us toward “we will not protect women from bad men”. “we will not protect women from exposure, starvation, war, rape, famine, or pestilence”. “We will not protect children”. “We will not take women in or shield them from harm”.

    That’s where this thing is going, I fear.

    A university cancelled a seminar by a feminist speaker, citing “academic freedom”, following threats of protest from transgender activists.

    The University of East Anglia has been accused of “no-platforming” Kathleen Stock, a professor in philosophy at Sussex University, who was due to address academics there next week about philosophical issues surrounding diversity and inclusion.

    But she was informed that her seminar has now been postponed in order to respect “the views of members of the transgender community”.

    The university also cited “security and health and safety issues” and argued that allowing her talk to go ahead “raised issues of academic freedom”.

    So the university is protecting academic freedom by allowing trannies to dictate what subjects are suitable for public discussion? I mean, all that was lost here is some feminist whining about diversity, but what if she was to give a talk about how to make great sandwiches? Then we all would lose.

    It doesnt even have to get to we hate women just asd you said “How much worse will it get before we get to a critical mass of men dropping out leading to economic ripple effects?”

    Also dont forget the workforce demographic timebomb about to go off.

    20% of the work age men 20-65 working todsy wil not might will retire in ten years. Btw according to BLS the average retirement age is 63 not the wished for 65-67.

    And the labour participation rate is 65%. So you can only replace 12% of the 20% leaving or in other words 8-10% gone.

    Imagine without anything else 1 in every 10 men literally does not exist to work, provide, protect, tax.

    Replace with immigration…sure the mcjobs but the hard workers: miners, farmers, utility men, and the skilled workers: engineers, techs, mechanics. Uh no because all the west is in the same boat, immigration is only from the low skilled third world.

    Now add in say 10% for f.i.r.e, mgtow, minimalism or just plain pissed off apathetic.

    So its not far fetched to see 10%+10% of working men just gone.

    20% or 1 in 5 men that work today….gone. Not protesting, rioting, doing bad things, just gone, not there. Not protecting, repairing, producing, taxing.

    And add in a drop in productivity from disincentives….

    It wont need hatred. Hell even apathy.

    Just the sheer numbers gone to retirement, old age death or just not participating

    Think about it ladies. Even with men participating at todays level one in ten men in your office, shops, streets…poof…gone. And more and more are saying fuck it every day. So add another one.

    “we will not protect women from bad men”. “we will not protect women from exposure, starvation, war, rape, famine, or pestilence”. “We will not protect children”. “We will not take women in or shield them from harm”. That wont be a choice or malice.

    We literally will not be there active in society to protect.

    But the bad men and the weathert and the lack of food and all the other natural dangers will be, they are there whether we are or not.
