System Failure

As a personal rule I never engage in political discourse either on this blog or on the SoSuave forum. For the same reason I’m cautious about relating my own personal experiences as illustrations of larger social dynamics, so too am I not inclined to relate my political views because they pollute a clearer understanding of these dynamics with suspicions of bias. That bias comes in many forms – personal, moral, political, etc. and I make a conscious effort in every post I publish to focus strictly on the underpinnings of every dynamic I explore with a minimum of personal input.

I realize that observing a process will change it, but I make my best efforts to be an objective observer of whatever I explore. Sometimes those observations are complimentary to those who agree, and sometimes they’re insulting.

That said, some specific inter-gender social dynamics demand a recognition of elements that contribute to bias when that element is itself the social dynamic. Issues of morality, ethics and social conduct are the easiest examples of where the particulars of a truth run headlong into how the genders perceive or modify that truth to their benefit.

Our modern political landscape and how it has evolved according to gender specific influences is another dynamic that deserves observation. I understand even a cursory analysis of political dynamics is fraught with the dangers of speculation, bias and deliberately distorted perceptions, but these liabilities shouldn’t excuse us from making the attempt to analyze them.

What’s brought me to this subject today was a very profound comment made by none other than Mark Minter, a Rational regular and in my opinion one of the manosphere’s best assets. I’m going to repost his comment below and let it speak for itself. Some of his analysis I may disagree with, but really only in terms of his attention to details. However the majority of it I do agree with and I thought his observations needed a larger stage to be expressed upon.

Before you read this, let me be clear, I have never edited nor censored any comment (except spam) in the history of Rational Male no matter who comments or and no matter how I may disagree with what’s expressed. That said, I would ask that commenters on this post be conscious of its purpose – observation of the social dynamic. There is a plentitude of postings on which to comment about our political environment over at The Spearhead if you wish to vent your ideological frustrations. I’m interested in social mechanic of what Mark is proposing here.

This is my analysis of the election. And this is my manifesto.

Here you had a sitting president that had everything going against him in voter sentiment, ambivalent economic data, if not bad data, a general lack of confidence of his ability to be a significant leader, and still he could not be beaten by his opponent.

This has been the on going theme of my comments. Women are winning. Women are going to win and impose the changes on society that they wish and there is nothing you can do to stop it.

The reason Obama won this election and why the Republicans were not able to gain any ground in the legislature was women. Pure and Simply. This election was about women. And the men lost. If the economy had improved even by a few percent more, then the election would never have been this close. Obama appealed to women and would’ve blown Romney away. Romney was only in the race because of his ability to run on the economy and the antipathy that conservative white voters have towards Obama. In the Senate races, Women won every race except for Maine where an independent candidate won, and the woman came in second. The conservative came in last.

The forces arrayed against you, socially, economically, and politically are insurmountable. You can scream, whine, blog, comment, whatever, and you will not turn back the march of history. Even if the number of Red Pill aware men increases ten fold in the next few years, it still will not stop the inevitable erosion of the position of men, not only in America, but throughout the rest of the world.

Now, I am going to tell you in no uncertain terms, if you have a dick then you are on your own and the forces of the world are arrayed against you. You can expect no political support, no social support, no support in the workplace, no support in the courts, with the police. Whether you realize it or not, women are a bigger enemy to you than any Arab, any Iranian, any Chinese.

Your last chance to even slow this march was just lost. Democrats made a lot of hay about the Clint Eastwood presentation during the Republican convention where he used a chair as a prop and addressed a hypothetical Barrack Obama in the chair. It was said that was the essence of the Republican party, angry, old white men railing in their anger at a black Democratic president. And more and more of are those old, angry, white men are going to die and not be replaced in the pipeline. In 2016 there will be even fewer of them and more and more non-white voters will move onto the voting rolls to replace those white male voters that will die over the next four years. Obama received 93% of the black vote, 69% of the hispanic vote, and 74% of the Asian vote. Romney won 59% of white voters. There will a smaller percentage of white voters in every election cycle from here on out.

But the real issue was the gender gap. Women favored Obama, 54 percent to 44 percent, while men chose Romney by an almost identical margin, 53 percent to 45 percent. Mothers were more likely to support Obama (55 percent to 45 percent), while fathers sided with Romney (55 percent to 43 percent).

“Democrats effectively made the case that issues important to women, not just issues like abortion and reproductive rights but economic issues of equal pay and access to jobs, those issues resonated with women,” said Ron Schurin, a political scientist at the University of Connecticut. “The Romney campaign seemed at times to be tone deaf on those issues. They tried to make a case, they just didn’t do it effectively.”

The key race in the election cycle, the bellweather indicator of things to come, was the race between Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren. Expect this formula to be repeated by Democrats in subsequent elections. Elizabeth Warren was an academic, a law professor from Harvard, with a specialization in Bankrupty. So expect more races where a female former professor without any political baggage or experience will run, and win, on women’s issues that are masked as issues for families, for the “middle class”. It is my opinion that Elizabeth Warren will run for president in 2016 and will become the nominee. And more and more women will move into elected office and those women will push issues favorable to women as their primary agenda masking those issues as “for children”, “for education”, “for families”.

Also, the story of the next four years will be stagnation on issues involving spending, spending cuts, unless it is a measure that effects women. Then public opinion, the media, and the army of women will coerce the Republican legislature into caving. When there are cuts or spending deals to be made, expect the deal not to cut things that would have a more direct effect on women and pushed towards cuts that will affect men. If defense is cut, that effects men, fewer soliders, fewer defense contracts. Expect less stimulus spending on infrastructure, again more jobs for men. Expect this ongoing deal, tax cuts for the wealthy or business in exchange for what women want. Expect head start, health benefits, food stamp progams, education, aid to dependent children to be untouched. Expect more legislation like WAVA and IMBRA. Expect an EEO interpretation that further broadens sexual harrassment and sexual discrimination.

You all need to understand in no uncertain terms, women despise you, they think little of you. They believe you brutish and violent, bull headed, and fundamentally stupid. They see you as big children that must be controlled and disciplined in order make you useful to them. And if you are not useful to them, if you do not provide those things that they wish from you, actually, more correct to say, those things they need from you, then you will not be a part of their lives.

And they are earnest and driven in structuring society and the law in such a manner that you are no longer needed.

They are now avoiding marriage in droves, deferring pregnancy and motherhood, and using men, more and more, as forms of recreation and, less and less, as a necessary partner in the scheme of life as they are defining it. Their job and their female friends are more important to them than you are. They are celebrating and defining single motherhood as the form of child rearing preferrable to a two parent household.

And you should expect the bad behavior of women in relationships and in social situations to only get worse. There is a massive demographic shift that has been occuring since the end of the birth control. Compare the dearth of child bearing age women against the number of men from 19-55 that chase those women, men that throw deals and enticements at the feet of those women, with the rise in social media mechanisms available today that permit women to be approached and have those deals thrown at their feet, and you have a recipe for more trouble ahead for men. Pity the poor boy born in 2007 when there was a birth rate of 4.32 babies born per 1000 people to the birth rate in 2011 of 1.9. There will be no girls for 50% of those boys, given that men tend to pair with younger women. If you wish to see the impact of demographic discrepancy on female behavior, study the history of Wyoming. Men literally had to pay women to have relationships and she shopped for the best offer. She would go to a dance with one man and leave with another because she received the better offer.

So, I say to all of you, on this key date, this moment of national introspection that occurs every 4 years on election night when the character of our society unveils itself in the form of the ballot, we most certainly have entered into a new era of history. I call it the PostModern because I can only define it right now as what it isn’t and I am not yet able to define it for what it is. You can call it Post Industrial. You can call it the Third Wave, the first being agriculture, the second being industrial.

But you can expect to see the world, society, and the relationships between men and women begin to organize in other means, other forms, other measures, than anything that has ever come before. The Modern Era, for as long as we have any sort of social memory has been organized along the lines of the family and the marriage between men and women. Everything was based on this, from work, to taxes, to even how houses are aligned along steets, neighborhoods are built, and how maps are drawn.

You need a new paradigm, new thinking about how you filter the information that your senses provide you and what you make of it. You need to question any value, any moral, any religion, your patriotism, your chivalry, your male code of conduct, any generalization, any stereotype, any caricature, anything that is an artifact from the Modern Era. And you need to replace it with something, something more PostModern. You can’t look back any fucking more. Those days are gone and will never, never return.

Start with this statement right here and make it the first declaration in who you are, what you will be, and will do, what you won’t be and what you won’t do, and how you judge and think about the world

“I will be nobody’s fucking slave and nobody’s fool”.

You owe nobody anything. You owe women nothing. You owe society nothing. All of those things, those forces, those structures wish to impose a slavery on you and you need begin to reject it right now. You need redefine to yourself, “What it means to be a man.” And you need to begin to live that declaration of what it could, should, and would to be a man if you filter that determination with the first filter.

“I will be nobody’s slave and nobody’s fool”.

We will stop being men that are useful to women, useful to society and start being men that live life on their terms. You have a power that you give away. We voluntarily let chains be placed on you because we think that is what “The Good Man” does.

Re-evaluate everything.

Revolt.

You cannot change where the world and society is going. But you have the power to change your life so that you live it on your own terms. There will be no “macro” solution to the angst that you are feeling. There will be no grand social movement to correct the wrongs that you experience in your dealings with women and in how society views and what it expects from men.

But you have the solution in your hands.

Game.

Not just “Game” as pick-up lines, but “Game” as a way of viewing women, as a way of viewing life, as a way of reconstructing what is right and what is wrong, as a way of reacting to the changes that are beyond your control, as a way of dealing with the structural and social changes that already have come and inevitably are coming.

Don’t worry about the world, worry about your world.

“I will be nobody’s slave and nobody’s fool.

Ever.

So when future historians look back on this PostModern time and make generalizations of this age, let them say:

“It was time when the men started being men, free men, that lived free, and no longer accepted the roles as slaves that society and women had imposed on them.”

That is some real shit. What I would really like to see is how this applies in other countries like the UK, parts of Africa, China, the Arab world, South America and so on. Because even though the majority of men in those places certainly don’t have a deep understanding of game, it’s still different to many western areas. I would much appreciate it (and I’m sure others will) if someone could look at how the manosphere (or lack of it) is doing over there.

A very profound statement, thanks for re-posting it Rollo.

It started with how I viewed and approached women but quickly broadened to my approach towards life as a whole. I’ve been questioning the value of my career relative to the sacrifices in time and limited future opportunities that it provides, my relationship with my faith and whether it truly is leading me towards spiritual fulfillment or endangering my well-being given the raw deal that marriage can potentially… Read more »

Everyone likes to disparage liberals and treat conservatives as some bastion of hope, but really the liberal bashing is not unfounded, but the conservative hero-worship is likewise misplaced.

Nothing men start to do, or start refusing to do, will make the slightest difference. Here’s why: Alphas, that is about 10% of males, have no reason whatsoever to change their behavior because they always get what they want. They don’t mind living in a matriarchy because the hottest women are always at their feet, and that’s all most men really want for a significant portion of their adult lives. And if they want anything else, women, controlling more and more of society, will always be happy to give it to them — because they’re alphas. Meanwhile, the other 80-90%… Read more »

Worth reemphasizing how much contempt today’s women have for men, how much they instinctively frame us as instruments to their aims, and react with anger and shame when we don’t act the way they want.

Men might live life on their own terms, but eventually someone’s gotta drill the oil, mine the rare-earths needed in the plasma TV’s, and grease the wheels of the nation.

The sooner society collapses the sooner we get to ridding the problem. That’s why when Obama was elected I figured we’d get the collapse sooner scenario. Some of my friends are wailing about the end of the country…I say find, let the country end. We will get back to our roots that way.

An advanced Western nation won’t COLLAPSE when women have more or less taken over every aspect; it will just run less well than before. And remember: The more wealth, power, and resources women control, the more they will be in a position to PROVIDE INCENTIVES TO MEN, to do what women and society feel is needed. What those incentives are, I leave to your imagination. There will always be strike breakers. Will the coming totally female-dominated society need ALL men to be on board? Or will it be able to bump along with only that proportion of men who choose… Read more »

Brilliant. I thought of writing something similar, but the took the words out of my mouth and in better form.

Terrible for society, great for the alphas (even more free poon!).

Dark wolf, if you just want to be a PUA, nothing changes. But if you’re more aware of the society-destroying nature of unrestrained hypergamy and the alpha/beta dichotomy, then you need to think. My take is that you need to have children and raise them to understand it all. Girls especially need to know how hypergamy can destroy their chances for a happy marriage and family, and destroy their children’s chances for a good upbringing. Let the liberals abort themselves to oblivion, their birthrates are already way below replacement. Play the long game, we’re talking perhaps centuries to ride this… Read more »

The female agenda and demographic that Mark faults here isn’t completely correct. The reason Obama won this election and why the Republicans were not able to gain any ground in the legislature was not due to women per se but due to single women. It’s the single women who’s values and norms are most at odds. Sure, the overall gender gap in this election has received a lot of media attention. But it’s a red herring. Whether one is married or not (rather than merely male or female) is a greater discriminant. And the gap is greatest of all between… Read more »

@AnonJohn The way I see it is that the men at the top couldn’t care less about plight of the average man. They will always see women as victims and continue to prioritize women at the expense of other men. Look at the 2nd debate and see how the “pay gap” was the most dominant topic when in reality men were hardest hit by the recession/mancession and single women are now making more money than single men, girls are also outnumbering boys in higher education, etc… I don’t care about these topics so I can’t elaborate on it, but l’m… Read more »

I look at the red-blue county by county map and it’s painfully clear, there are two America’s….the moral and the immoral.
Moral people work and contribute, immoral people mooch and hand their bills to others.
There is no compromise, there is no reaching across the aisle, no working with the other side.
The only hope for America is a red state secession!
I think the blue states would welcome this divorce. In their arrogance they actually think they are the great contributors who pay the bills, their delusion is profound.

As for regards to Mark Minter. Some people say that he is simply bitter and is just bitching and whining. I don’t think that is the root emotion that is ultimately driving his posts and his message. His tone is akin to religious fervour. Just as I have seen with new religious converts in that they are full of excitement and zeal is what I see with Mark Minter and his posts. To him, the red pill is his salvation. He lived a life of quiet desperation and now that it’s better, he wants people to hear about how they… Read more »

@Shocker The supremacy of the male is at play. And the supremacy of the whites is at play. The intersection of both is at the white male. Let’s be real honest here. To spout reality about women and hypergamy will place you squarely in the cross-hairs of feminism and it’s harpies. You will be singled out and ridiculed. To spout reality about race will get you the same treatment. It is no mistake that the vast majority of blacks vote for Obama, yet nobody calls that racist. Where-as anybody voting for Romeny because he is white IS a racist. You… Read more »

Out of all the men in America, only about .01% get to be in big industry board rooms, military leadership, high government office, etc. These people aren’t looking out for their own gender, they are looking out for themselves. And in the case of government, they look out for themselves by pandering to women at the expense of the other 99.99% of people their own gender.

That’s just the way I see it. Maybe I’m over-simplifying things to a point of retardation.

You are right.

The heirarchy is like this…

“Binders full of women.” When the Democrats seized on that phrase by Romney, I thought it was a sign they were desperate. I mean, how fucking idiotic to claim there is something wrong with Romney saying that he wanted women in his cabinet, so his search team got several large binders full of womens’ résumés. They thought it was funny to talk about how Romney wanted “women in binders” versus “lots of womens’ résumés in three-ring binders.” Tee-hee. Ho-ho. Grow the fuck up. But it was real.

The changes are so fast. Maybe women will take over dominance in society, but it won’t last a long time. They are mentally unprepared for maintaining such status. They will scratch each other eyes out when times come and men will be standing aside and enjoying the spectacle. Hypergamy doesn’t care about hierarchy. The few exceptions in history was just exceptions.

Only employees get paychecks. Because of their subordinate status, they do indeed have their compulsory, involuntary payments to their masters deducted before receiving their first dime. You’ll notice that this is the way a child is treated.

That’s why I recommend to men who want to be happy and naturally more alpha to do 2 simple things, which matter more than all the theory and Game advice put together — work out and work for yourself.

Be fit, and own your own business.

When you accomplish those two tasks, you’re most of the way there already.

Make sure your perception of their requests is accurate.

As G says, only 10% of the engineers in his company are women, yet somehow women are ACTUALLY ABLE TO (increasingly) DOMINATE THE COMPANY. “50% of the VPs are women.” AnonJohn points out that “men [still] dominate all the important things: highest levels of government, military, and economy.” They only “dominate” NUMERICALLY. But they’re allowing themselves to be told what to do, how to do it, and what policies to make, BY WOMEN AND BY FEMINIZED MEN. Most men are AVERAGE. That’s what the word ‘average’ actually MEANS. They do women’s bidding as they have always done — and now,… Read more »

I don’t agree with his outcome. Simply put, we are borrowing money to keep advancing women into higher and higher positions, to fund whatever they want. But if you’re looking at America right now, would you buy our debt? I don’t think so. Once we can’t sell our debt anymore, then women will come crashing down.

Beyond that, I agree with what he said and it really makes me sad how much women hate me.

AnonJohn – well stated. It is largely white Christian men who own the means of production and make the decisions to unemploy working class men of all races here in the U.S. in pursuit of maximizing their own wealth. It’s hard to place the blame on those with whom you have for so long identified, but it’s squarely where it belongs. Women and minorites’ influence on this is at most a sideshow.

Epic post is yet another Epic post by Mark Minter.

I slightly disagree on the republicans being the saviors of men, but that’s a point for another day. Everything else about men being on their own and abandoning once and for all the idea of a society to serve and revere is dead on, on words that could easily become a manifesto.

It comes to mind Advocatus Diaboli’s post about MGTOW being the predominant form rather than game. It’s also spot on, as much as I would like to envision a bright future of sophisticated hedonism and conquests.

Yep. Tyler said it back in The Blueprint:

“If you’re looking for other people’s standards to determine your value, you will always come up short. Even if you’re successful, you’re still a dumb chode that spends all his time living up to other people’s standards. You still are coming from a foundational level where reacting to other people is how you spend your days.”

8:50 is around where the part I quoted above came from. Whole clip is good though. Because he’s a PUA it’s focused more on “how is this relevant to getting pussy”, but the concepts are the same ones MGTOW guys approve of. Like I say, there’s a lot of crossover between PUA and MGTOW beliefs…except that PUAs develop the skillset to get laid while they GTOW lol
