The Myth of the Alpha Female

On last Saturday’s Red Man Group we took a call from a woman who has apparently just discovered the “red pill school of thought” and looked up what ever convoluted definitions she could find from the ‘normie web’ to better understand it. For context, the whole exchange began around the 2:04:00 mark here, but the bit I want to dissect I’ve cued up to 2:09 in the above video. The Red Pill as a praxeology is often something most uninitiated people don’t have the patience to really want to understand. So when they’re confronted with a Red Pill truth that conflicts with some ego-invested belief they often just resort to what I call “point and sputter” – they spit out some school yard taunt, tell you how unbelievable it is anyone could ever believe such a thing in this day and then move along to whatever ideological site they’re comforted by.

Credit where it’s due, this woman (and I apologize for not getting her name) at the very least was prompted to ask some questions about how we come to whatever misattributed ideas she read were what it is we think. Listen to the whole exchange for context. In the beginning I was asked the standard “what do you tel your daughter about all of this?” as if this is going to somehow shame me back down to earth, but the part she was most distraught over was the idea that “women are only valuable for what they look like”.

My response to her was based on an essay I wrote 4 years ago titled Separating Values. In that piece I tried to outline how women today have trouble separating their sexual market value from their self-perceived personal worth:

Conflating Values

One of the major problems women have, and more than even some red pill men have, is the conflation of sexual market value with their intrinsic personal value as a human being.

It needs to be emphasized that while personal value is influential in sexual market value, SMV is distinct from your value as a human being. I’m stressing this because, in the age Disney Princess empowerment, this conflation of the two has become a go-to social convention; and not just for women.

What [Robin] Korth suffers from is presuming her personal value is her sexual market value.

It’s disruptive to her self-perceptions and ego-investments when that presumption is challenged by a man who doesn’t want to fuck her for reasons based on the intrinsic value she believes she’s entitled to by virtue of maturity and imaginings of self-sufficiency. Just as women aren’t aroused by men’s own self-concepts of virtuousness and aspirations of higher purpose, men aren’t aroused by whatever ephemeral self-perceptions a woman may have.

Listening to this woman’s concerns, it’s a fairly common refutation and one we come to expect from a mindset that presumes men callously objectify women out of hand, or due to their being taught to be so by a chauvinistic toxic masculinity. Women cling to this because it sounds right and reinforces the victimhood narrative that defines the collective identity of the Sisterhood. So when they read it or see it openly embraced, or spoken about men in a positive context it’s confirmation of an offense they want to believe is endemic in men. Thus, we get the “literally shaking”, sound of a quavering voice.

However, all of this gets in the way of women really understanding that they’ve been conditioned to conflate their personal worth with their sexual market value. As I mentioned in my response, a woman can be a wonderful humanitarian, a great mother, the CEO of a Fortune 500 company or someone who adds value to the depth and breadth of humankind, but it won’t make her look any better in a bikini. And that is where sexual market value starts for women when it comes to men’s arousal and attraction. For as long as I’ve been writing this blog I’ve tried to explain this in as simple a way as possible; men and women are different. Part of our differences is that what constitutes sexual market value for one sex is not an equal evaluation for the other. For as much as the equalist mindset pervades our social consciousness, the reality is men and women are different in many fundamental ways.

One reason Red Pill awareness in men gets vilified by women is because it nakedly exposes, discusses and develops sexual and life strategies around some very Darwinistic and unflattering realities of intersexual dynamics based on those differences. But exposing these differences is only offensive to this social order because there is a presumption of a blank-slate equalism that’s been embedded into every aspect of our gender understanding for almost 70 years now. This offensiveness is less about the actual nuts and bolts of evolution, biology and psychological differences between men and women, but more so it’s about the ego-invested idea that men and women should be blank-slate, functional equals in all respects. Even this presumption is a horse-shit cover story for the latent purpose of feminism floating the lie of “equality” – fundamentally disempowering men so women can aspire to be their masters in various ways.

The woman from our discussion expressed this barely containable angst that men only value her as a sexual object, and it’s important to suss out the reasoning for this confusion and rage. As I mentioned, the problem women have is an inability to separate their sexual market value from their personal value a ‘basic human being‘. A quote I’m known for is “virtue is anti-seductive.” No guy ‘virtues’ a woman into bed, and while I get push back for devaluing the importance of virtue occasionally, what I don’t get is any disagreement from men or women on that point. Virtue, intelligence, honor, duty, wisdom and any number of other esoteric features that would make a man a terrific human being do nothing (or sometimes work against him) for his raw visceral sexuality that women are aroused by. For men, however, these traits and many more will definitely add to his attractiveness as a long term prospect for women.

In men, affluence, status, intelligence, improvisation, creativity, ambition, drive, perseverance, humor, positive-conventional masculinity, and many more aspects make this man an attractive choice for a long term relationship with women. These are attributes that contribute to a man’s sexual market value, but they are incomplete without a raw, visceral physical component. Hypergamy serves two masters, Alpha seed and Beta need – and as such it hates the one and loves the other depending on what a woman’s most pressing necessity happens to be at that point in her life. Women have an innate, limbic understanding of what makes a man a complete package – a great catch.

Where this and most other women fail is that their own Fempowerment conditioning teaches them that what makes a man attractive, what makes his SMV appealing to women must necessarily be what makes for her own personal value and sexual market value. The reason this woman is shaking here is because this conditioning has convinced her and generations of women to build a life predicated on a fallacy: What makes her a “good person” should necessarily make her attractive and arousing to men. This is a great falsehood that is the root of many of the gender conflicts and misunderstandings we see around us today.

Gendered Differences in Attraction

The things that make a woman’s sexual market value high are not the same things make her sense of personal worth high. Yet, this is exactly what the Feminine Imperative conditions women to believe and seeks to shame men for not complying with this fallacy. When men opt for younger, hotter, tighter at all ages of their own maturity, the visceral message is clear – it makes no difference what a woman’s personal value is when it comes to sexual valuation. Where women fall short is they presume that men cannot appreciate women for anything but their sexual value.

This is an interesting dynamic since the Imperative teaches women never to implicitly do anything for a man.

The prime directive of feminism for the past 50 years has been founded on women striving to achieve the ideal of the Strong Independent Woman® (SIW). This SIW ideal is the carrot that gets the mules to pull the cart. That ideal is never fully attainable because if it were it would make an end state for feminism a realizable goal rather than the self-perpetuating social mechanism it is. The SIW ideal is intentionally ambiguous, but the concept is based on selling women the idea that they can not only “have it all” but they can be it all too. The ‘independence’ feminism sells predicated on being a self-sustaining, self-satisfying, autonomous ‘thing’ that doesn’t need for anything. A woman is every bit as good a feminine role model as she is a masculine one, ergo, she has no need for men beyond the physical aspect. In fact, an independence from men, from any form of dependency on men, has been part of the feminist charter since Seneca Falls in 1848.

From a Red Pill perspective, and in my opinion, this independence from men has been the single most damaging aspect of feminism in its history. Men and women evolved to be complements to the other and in evolutionary terms are far stronger together than apart. Each compensates for the one’s innate weaknesses with the other’s innate strengths. Feminism preaches two lies in this respect – the first being that a woman can “have it all”, but also she can be an autonomous being with no intrinsic needs beyond what she can provide for or address herself. The lie is that she “don’t need no man” when a hundred thousand years of evolution says different. Men and women need each other, but it’s feminism that’s selling the lie that they don’t.

The ironic part about this socialized lie is that in emancipating women from the ‘dependency’ of men feminism has founded the basis of ‘having it all’ on how closely a woman can emulate a man. The definition of a successful Strong Independent Woman is how closely she can replicate the success of men. This ideal for SIW success is based on a masculine ideal. As feminism has refocused women’s goals on these masculine ideals it has systematically altered the definition of femininity to align with its ideal of ‘success’.

The Myth of the Alpha Female

As part of that new masculine ideal of female success, along came the concept of the Alpha Female. I’ve read dozens of articles about this fantasy creature; how she’s a boss who takes no shit and turns companies around from the brink of bankruptcy by virtue of being female. A woman of the future who emulates and exceeds the successes of any apex-male CEO of those sexist Fortune 500 companies. Even if she’s not a high powered exec, the match (literally) of any man, women still love to imagine themselves in this “alpha” role in their own little worlds.

“I’m an Alpha Female, and maybe I’m not a jet setter, but I’m a Type A personality and as such I’m headstrong, a go-getter woman who knows what she wants.”

This sloganized mental model is part of the new Strong Independent Woman® costume that feminism is selling to women today.

If you’re a woman who’s bought into the Confidence Porn narrative that’s so popular today, allow me to ruin that image for you. There is no such thing as an “alpha” female – at least not in the respect of the idealistic Fempowered fantasy you think applies to you. The Feminine Imperative likes to convince women that they are ‘Alpha’ using that same masculine model definitions I detailed above here. The Strong Independent Woman meme only holds up insofar as it emulates masculine success and a masculine defined concept of ‘Alpha’. By this definition every woman has a potential to be an ‘alpha’ female in her own little way. Like I said, the Confidence Porn women gobble up is so tasty because it’s so achievable – all you have to do is cop the “I’m the boss, I’m a Type A person” attitude, put some foam inserts in the shoulders of your ‘power suit’ and you too can be Alpha because you say so and you walk the same walk as an Alpha Male.

The push for female-primacy has conditioned generations of women to expect an entitled, default respect, and a deference to their authority from men. They’re told at every opportunity from the time they’re 5 years old that they can do anything, have it all, be it all, and they’re the “natural leaders of the future”. By extension this leads women to the Alpha Female trope.

Ironically, the same people who love to ridicule the idea of ‘Alpha Males’ completely accept the concept of an Alpha Female. They’ll make funny videos ridiculing the Red Pill for using ‘alpha’ as a referential term – “These jokers think they’re wolves or Silver Back Gorillas, hur hur!” – but they’ll eagerly embrace the idea of an ‘alpha’ female. That conditioned deference of the feminine makes it believable; and they like the idea that identifying with women’s delusions of empowerment might get them laid.

Attribution Bias Error

The error that women and feminism make in the ‘Alpha Female’ respect is an attribution bias error. Women are conditioned to believe that if they value the aspects of what makes men attractive, what makes them a good pairing, that men must also value those traits in women. If status, power, social proof, affluence, careerism, drive, etc. is what gets them hot for men (in the long term) then possessing those traits themselves must also be attractive in the reverse. Unfortunately for women, they’re painfully (but slowly) learning that men and women are in fact different and the lie of egalitarian equalism has essentially cost them a future with a husband, children and family living.

In order to counter this harsh reality an industry in biotech egg-freezing has sprung up around the very real female insecurity that these confident Alpha Women wont find a suitable man to start a family with now that they are well past the Wall. Feminine-primary society is capitalizing on this fear.

But the reverse is true; men’s sexual selection criteria is far more simplistic than women’s. From an evolved, naturalist perspective men select women based on looks and sexual availability – and on a subconscious level women know this, yet they rationalize that men should be interested in their coequal professionalism, status and any number of intrinsic qualities they believe they possess. The root of this misunderstanding is once again the socialized lie of egalitarian, blank-slate equalism. Only now women expect that if they invest themselves in the same pursuits as Alpha men that this should compensate for their lack of physical appeal. If men and women are functional equals what defines male dominance should also define female dominance. Evolution says differently.

The woman on the left (Reneé Sommerfield) is the true Alpha female by the standards of evolutionary realities. The woman on the right (Sheryl Sandberg) is what our gynocentric social order would have men believe should be considered an ‘alpha’ female. This is the conflict that’s at the heart of so many manufactured crises of attraction for women and the failure of their long-term plans to have a family.

The Alpha Female is really the woman who best embodies what men’s evolved, biological imperatives determine what makes her an attractive breeding and long-term mate choice. Men’s criteria is very simple; fitness, youth, assertive sexuality, playfulness, conventional femininity and genuine desire to please him. Beyond this, submission, respect, nurturing (potential mothering qualities), a natural deference to male authority, humility, admiration and an unobligated desire to recognize that man as her complementary partner are just some of the long-term attributes that make a woman someone a man might want to invest himself in a family with.

Unfortunately all of this criteria is counter to the message ‘alpha‘ Females are taught are valuable today. They are taught that anything a woman might do for the expressed pleasure of a man is anathema to the Strong Independent Woman® meme. The presumption is that a desire to meet any of this criteria is a failure on the part of a woman who demands to be the ‘equal’ of a man. Even acknowledging the innate, complementary natures of men and women is an affront to the equalist narrative. Furthermore, any man who would base (much less express) his own decision making criteria as such is shamed via social conventions. The narrative is that he must be needy, or threatened by a “strong woman” or he must want this woman to be his Mommy substitute. All of this is a social mechanic meant to force fit that natural complementary criteria into the box of egalitarian equalism.

Value Added

I don’t write for a female readership per se. In fact, I don’t really direct my writing towards any audience, but in this instance I want to end here with a message for my female readers. Take this message to the bank: the sexes evolved to be complementary to each other, not adversarial. But that adversarial feeling you get when you read me describing some unflattering aspect of female nature is the product of your own Blue Pill conditioning that’s taught you the lie of egalitarianism-as-female-empowerment. If you truly want to ‘empower‘ yourselves set aside your self-importance, look inside yourselves and ask this question –

What is it about me that a man would find attractive from a naturalistic perspective?

What do I possess that a man would truly believe is Value Added?

That may feel a bit counterintuitive to you, but understand that the reason this introspection is alien or offensive to you is because you’ve been conditioned to believe that your masculine qualities are what men should find attractive about you. You turn this offense back on men and make it their fault for not finding your ‘alpha femaleness’ the root of their attraction to you. Is the idea of changing yourself, to add value to your package, for the pleasure of a man a source of anger for you? Why is that?

I see far too many otherwise beautiful women who destroy themselves on the lie of the ‘alpha’ female and a never ending struggle to perfect an equalist archetype in themselves. They rail on about infantile men, or bemoan that men are afraid to ask them out, or ask “Where are all the good guys nowadays?” Understand that these efforts to shame men into finding something attractive about you based on your masculine criteria for attraction will always fail; leaving you a lonely childless middle aged wreck all because you refused to accept that you need to be someone worth marrying.

Men and women are better together than they are apart. We evolved to be complements to the other. But, feminism, the Feminine Imperative and an endemic Fempowerment culture have taught you to believe “you are enough”, you are complete, you don’t need a man because you can satisfy all of your own needs. This is the most damning lie ever perpetrated on womankind – that you can be it all – and only when it’s too late do women realize that they’ve been had.

  1. “Which party pushed Antitrust legislation? Which party sought to enforce Antitrust legislation?”

    Both, depending on interest.

    Disclaimer of Bias: I’m an adult life long registered independent. I’m not backing a particular stable, I don’t like any of them.

  2. The Democratic-Republican Party of Jefferson has nothing to do with today’s Republican Party and has been claimed by both the current Democrat and Republican parties, as suits their interests.

  3. All the anecdotal evidence that I see tells me Facebook is losing customer base in the under 25 cohort, although plenty of middle aged momladies, catladies, grannyladies etc. are still hooked up. Alphabet / Goog is in a much better position than FB. YouTube is one of the money-pits that GOOG bought earlier this century. Twitter is in a more ambiguous state from what I can tell.

    Deplatforming for reasons of ideology is one sided for now, we’ll see how that plays out. As long as TWTR and other socials are trying to maintain a pretense of even-handedness, “just a public business” it will be possible to dig back into people’s tweets (James Gunn) or be offended by a YT channel, etc.

    It won’t surprise me if the pretense of even-handedness is gone in a few months, though. There’s a lot of deranged fury out there among the annointed ones, especially in Silly Valley. Never visited Stormfront, but I know who decided to do it in, and how he did it. If that man wakes up grouchy about the androsphere some morning, –poof–. Off to the dark web…

    Blaximus, how do I go about setting up my own, private TLD?

    Or, heck, that’s still vulnerable – my own private ICANN?

    What’s a “public utility” in the current year?

  4. When the Republican Party decided to adopt a “Big Tent” strategy in the 1980s, it harmed its brand and its unity. Since then, the RP has been undermined from within, so that frequently voters are given a choice between a Democrat and a RINO–which is basically just a choice of personalities, not governing philosophies.

    The “Big Tent” strategy has been a disaster for Republicans. Why vote for a RINO, who is obviously an inauthentic democrat, when you can have an authentic democrat? And then there’s all the internal bickering and confusion among voters about what’s going on. So people like kfg say “A pox on both your houses.”

  5. Who said / did what to whom in the election of 1980 is almost as irrelevant as who was in the 90-minute trench with Benito Mussolini on the Austrian front. Not quite, but almost. Might as well rant about the Paris Commune.

  6. ” . . . people like kfg say “A pox on both your houses.””

    And their little dogs too.

    They are as they do, not as they say. Neither party does anything much like what they say, and what they say has changed a number of times in my own lifetime. They virtually swapped places circa ’65. Goldwater warned them that that was going to come back to bite them in time, so his own party defeated him.

  7. A few threads back there was some discussion of the eventual decline and that it would be good to have “valuable skills / knowledge”, such as for example medicine (SJF is well covered as he also has some guns). Any suggestions of stuff that won’t take several years to learn (i.e. not a medical degree)?
    Preferably stuff I could make use of before a dramatic decline, which I suspect is not even going to happen during my lifetime.

  8. “Let’s talk individuals…”

    That is a change of subject, but apropos because . . .

    “Trump has been keeping his campaign promises.”

    Trump is not a Republican, he is a Trumpian whose biggest political problem has been being opposed by the Republican party, which he captured to promote his own ends.

    He is still fighting to form a party, which might be labeled “Republican,” but will not be the same party he seized.

    I have found a lot of shit in tins labeled “Candy” over the years.

    Sometimes candy is even labeled “Shit” to keep people away from it.

    I like to have a look inside before I decide what it is these days.

  9. “Any suggestions of stuff that won’t take several years to learn”

    Honey is an effective topical antiseptic.

    ” . . . a dramatic decline, which I suspect is not even going to happen during my lifetime.”

    It’s not something I normally recommend, but you might want to watch Gone With the Wind again.

  10. kfg
    Honey is an effective topical antiseptic.

    Blucher after Ligny. Honey, ginger and another horse.

  11. I have someone in the family that knows how to do beekeeping so I could certainly learn that. But bees themselves are in decline right now, that might indeed be one of the possible ways for civilization to decline – lack of food due to lack of pollinators.

  12. Returning to that study I linked earlier, one of the graphs shows results that shouldn’t be a surprise here: while “some college” makes women more attractive, anything beyond a bachelor’s makes them less attractive.

    One of the items pushed in credential land: more degrees. One of the key Sandbergian “alpha” female qualities: more degrees. It is demonstrably not true, the data show this clearly.

    The graph I linked to earlier clearly depicts time passing: women = milk, while men = wine. Another strike against the Sandbergian myth that explains why women who “settle” post 30 are likely to be restless, get the “whispers” in their ears.

    The truth is what it is, and if some people’s eyes hurt looking at it, they should use said eyes more.

  13. Bees are in distress, they are not in decline.

    ” . . . lack of food due to lack of pollinators.”

    Protips 2 and 3:

    Stalking the wild asparagus is a great way to starve to death. Your life will depend on securing fat.

    If you’re planting a survival garden, note that peas self-pollinate, but the above still applies.

  14. Trump’s victory is a return to 1980’s era Reagan Republicanism.

    The country club republicans (aka “RINOs”) are currently in decline.

    The democrats have unity in their party, unlike the repubs.

    Reagan’s weakness was that he trusted dems to keep their word after they made a deal. Big mistake. Trump doesn’t have that problem.

  15. Lee Atwater.

    Still dead, right? Like Cornwallis, Sherman, Mussolini, Francisco Franco… History book stuff.

  16. “Trump’s victory is a return to 1980’s era Reagan Republicanism.”

    Nah

    …because Trump’s policies are so much more like Eisenhower’s than like Reagan’s

  17. Elon Musk looks to be melting down in some emotional fashion, along with the share price of TSLA.

    Which of his women – wives, GF’s, etc. – were “alpha women”? Some? All? None?

  18. “Southern Strategy”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Atwater

    From the paragraph on “Southern Strategy”, it looks like the interviewer is projecting a race-baiting frame of reference onto 29 year old Atwater’s politics. From the Wiki article, it looks like Atwater wasn’t clever enough to figure that out.

    I’m not 29 y.o. and I have the benefit of hindsight to recognize the trap and the lie posited by the interviewer.

    Atwater at least had enough sense to deny that race-baiting was overt:

    all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites.And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I’m not saying that.

    And Atwater did say that Reagan did not need to make racial appeals.

    But, of course, anyone is free to read into Atwater’s shooting-from-the-hip confusing speech whatever the hell they like. If someone got tapes of me shooting my mouth off I’m sure I could be convicted of all kinds of hate crimes, lol.

  19. Lol.

    Read Atwater words ( not wiki ). You were alive when this was going on, how did you manage to just ignore itnall?…😂😂😂 ( rhetorical . It didn’t affect you..).

    Dixiecrats, the angry pro racist ones, deserted to Democrat party over civil rights legislation ending segregation and Jim crow. They became….wait for it….. Republicans.

    If you’re a diehard rethuglican, how can this escape your knowledge? Or better yet, why try to sugar coat it? History and Atwater were very clear.

  20. Oh, and there are plenty, PLENTY of interviews, books and recordings of them ” shooting their mouths off ” consistently and in unison.

    Never saw any????

    For real??

  21. Earth to Blax, Earth to Blax…come in…

    Lol, most of what I quoted was Atwater, but of course, your mental framework REQUIRES that Atwater be racist because everyone (Blax) “knows” that Repubs are really racist.

    No question that some southern Democrats were racist in the mid 60s and that they went Repub. Doesn’t mean that they didn’t change over time, as most people do. So, you really, really, really need to move past the Jim Crow era into the 22nd century.

    I still find overtly racist white people occasionally, but they are few and far between and they get my “Seriously?” look when they talk about “nigger” music. By contrast, most Repubs were OVERJOYED when they found out that Trump was polling 29% approval among blacks. Some weird kind of racism that is.

    Maybe you ought to take a trip into the south to find out what it is like today.

  22. Duh…..

    I was born in the south. I have seen him crow up close and personal. I’m not guessing, speculating or reading.

    First hand.

    Don’t make excuses for what Atwater was doing. Just let it go.

  23. @Cole,

    Let me get this straight, your husband pays for majority of the bills, you said you both “respect each other”, and you are talking about the future is Feminism and “Drone bees”. Make up ur mind, what exactly do u want?

    Btw, when ppl say they respect their spouse, esp at such a young age, I always get the impression that that the attraction and desire start withering, hence the “respect” take over.

    Pardon the English, not a native speaker.

  24. If it is such a thing as a Alfa-female wouldn’t she be a woman that secures a Alfa male and manipulates his wealth and Human Resources for the benefit of her own children and self preservation. Is this the reason teenage girls are so fast to marry the first guy that says ( I love you ) then move out of the family home? I think most men think that a female has daddy- daughter issues when really it’s mother daughter issues that is the catalyst for a lot the conflict that surrounds them. Only it’s covert and not overt hidden in inter female communication so a blue pill man is oblivious to what is going on around him. It is one thing to ruin a man in divorce but to have married him to escape a mother’s parental control to begin with is a false relationship from the start. The word I think is matriarch that I’m thinking not Alfa – female

  25. @Sentient

    “Snip… Lights out.”

    Yup, if you rely on the open web and typical commercial hosting you will be at their mercy when public outcry demands your site be shut down.

    What to do?

    Host your site on the dark web. Purchase your own servers and host them in as secure fashion as you can afford. Allow access to it via only Tor and share Onion links via private messaging or post it in various places people can find. One needs to only study basic tradecraft to figure out it’s easy to put links in public places for people to find. Better yet, only share the Onion link via private encrypted messaging. This or any site could still use WordPress as it’s web server host platform so you keep using a simple content management system (CMS).

    Outside of the hosting hassles any user who wants to access the site needs to download and use a Tor browser. You would also want to run on your personal machine a good VPN that does not keep logs.

    One disadvantage is that normal open web links to thinks like our fav memes, YouTube links and such might be problematic. Likely you would want to just copy and paste into your traditional web browser to view the open web links.

    There would be no more finding TRM or whatever site via a Google or Duckduckgo search as your site would be effectively “hidden” from public view.

    This type of hosting would require some technical chops as you need to know how to setup and manage an Apache web server. Those skills cost money and a person(s) would need to be managing this daily. Rollo would need to start charging access or ask for Patreon donations. Even then, Pateron or even Paypal likely would boot your if your site faced a similar situation as the Stormer site did. There are simple ways to give people money…..

    At the very least for right now TRM should be backed up daily and those backups exported and loaded onto drives that are NOT connected to the Interwebs. Backup your data, load it locally and unplug that shit so a clever Anonee-musss hacker can’t wipe them out.

    My guess is the stormies have simply gone to the dark side…not that they weren’t already there.

  26. Roused

    Stormfront is actually still up at Stormfront.org .

    I got an email earlier this month,, but when I went to check it out, it was down. Maybe a dos attack or something.

    But the activity is way down.compared to the past.

  27. https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2018/08/how-the-left-is-outsourcing-censorship-of-the-internet.php

    It started when YouTube downgraded PragerU’s videos. Weird: PragerU’s videos are enormously popular, and YouTube makes money when people watch videos. Moreover, PragerU’s videos are among the most high-quality, intellectually sound productions on YouTube. Nevertheless, YouTube (which is owned by Google) has tried to suppress traffic to PragerU’s products. PragerU has sued Google as a result. So this is the latest:

    Facebook has shadow banned PragerU into complete silence to its more than 3 million followers, internal analytics revealed.

    “Our last 9 posts have been completely censored reaching 0 of our 3 million followers,” PragerU media personality Will Witt posted on Facebook Friday. “At least two of our videos were deleted last night for ‘hate speech’ including a post of our most recent video with The Conservative Millennial,Make Men Masculine Again.”

    “Internal Facebook analytics reveal that as of Thursday, Aug. 16, at 10:00 PM PDT, posts by PragerU on the social media platform have been completely invisible to its more than 3 million followers,” PragerU reported in a news release Friday. “Currently, visitors to PragerU’s Facebook page are unable to see any of its most recent posts.”

    “This is a first for us,” PragerU Chief Marketing Officer Craig Strazzeri said in a statement. “While we’ve experienced blatant discrimination from Google/YouTube, which is why we’ve filed legal action against them, this represents a whole new level of censorship by Facebook. at this point, Facebook has provided little clarity saying it will get back to us in another two to three business days, which in the world of social media might as well be an eternity.”

  28. Gee… One of the ICANN board members works for the Center for Democracy and Technology.

    That sure sounds nice and safe.

    I’m sure it’s not funded by a cabal of Globalist Equalists right?

    Oh wait….

    But really they will give Rollo the benefit of doubt right? Surely he isn’t a hateful misogynist oppressor…

  30. “Listening to this woman’s concerns, it’s a fairly common refutation and one we come to expect from a mindset that presumes men callously objectify women out of hand, or due to their being taught to be so by a chauvinistic toxic masculinity.”

    The women put forth in the article, namely Renee Sommerfield and Cheryl Sandberg are wearing an inordinate amount of make-up. False eye lashes, painted eyebrows, primer, foundation ( in Sandberg’s case) and lip gloss. Women have become the bright lights of an amusement arcade and we, men, little children staring in gaped awe.

    A woman doesn’t apply this amount of make-up solely for the attention of men. Women’s self worth has always been tied up in how they appear to the world. These competing values distract us from the notion, one of the reasons for make-up is for the wearer to be objectified.

    “The prime directive of feminism for the past 50 years has been founded on women striving to achieve the ideal of the Strong Independent Woman® (SIW). This SIW ideal is the carrot that gets the mules to pull the cart. That ideal is never fully attainable because if it were it would make an end state for feminism a realizable goal rather than the self-perpetuating social mechanism it is.”

    “Understand that these efforts to shame men into finding something attractive about you based on your masculine criteria for attraction will always fail; leaving you a lonely childless middle aged wreck all because you refused to accept that you need to be someone worth marrying.”

    I would argue women today have no problem becoming childless, middle aged spinsters, if indeed they can live the strong independent woman lifestyle. To them the mere illusion of it is better than marrying and having children.

    Real power can’t abide femininity and women want power.

    When Donovan Sharpe asked the woman, in this clip, what she wanted. She responded by saying she wanted to meet someone she could start a business with.
    Donovan made the point; even an ugly woman could find a mate. No doubt, a salve for her ego.
    Which leads me to believe this woman had\has found someone, but not the right someone.

    This woman wants a man of sufficient means to start a business with. It’s implied she has no capital of her own. I would presume the men she’s met have made a show of wealth to secure her interest. But as things have progressed she came to the realisation much of their wealth came through their indebtedness. Which has left her scouring the internet for men who fits her criteria. A man who has accrued his own wealth and is willing to share it with a potential spouse.

    This woman accepts her nature (even one honed in the feminine imperative) can’t provide her with the trappings of the life she envisions for herself. What she will take away from this conversation is a better idea of how her ideal thinks. For a time she’ll become more conciliatory in her approach to men who signal their worth to her. But once the pull of the imperative reasserts itself, she’ll leave and take whatever she can (of his) with her.

    Quotes from the movie Watchers:

    Dan Dreiberg: What happened to us? What happened to the American Dream?

    Edward Blake: “What happened to the American Dream?” It came true! You’re lookin’ at it…

    Dr. Manhattan: They claim their labors are to build a heaven, yet their heaven is populated by horrors. Perhaps the world is not made. Perhaps nothing is made. A clock without a craftsman. It’s too late. Always has been, always will be. Too late.

    Adrian Veidt: We can do so much more. We can save this world… with the right leadership.

    Adrian Veidt: His vision of a united world… well, it was unprecedented. I wanted… *needed* to match his accomplishments, and so I resolved to apply antiquity’s teaching to our world, *today*. And so began my path to conquest. Conquest not of men, but of the evils that beset them.

    So, perhaps we revert to the maxim that a bottoms up approach is best for our young men?

  33. The American Dream was gutted by the American Dream(tm).

    The American Dream was to own your own land and take your living from it, so that, no matter how poor, you were beholden to no man.

  34. Okay, what I find interesting, is that a large constituency of Americans ” say ” that in the capitalist utopian ideal, it’s good to make more money than anyone could spend/use in a hundred lifetimes. Guys get hard ons over the notion and rally up cheering.

    I got it.

    But what comes along with the narrowing of ” deserving candidates “, a shrinking number compared to the whole, is the emassing of ” power “. In America, money = power. Power and money trump morals or history or nationalism or patriotism.

    I got it.

    The wealthy battle with their different elements for control. For instance, everyone complains about Teh media, but the media empires are not run or owned by people making 200,000 bucks a year. Billionaires control media, whether it’s considered ” right ” or ” left “, conservative or liberal. The only thing most interested people do is choose sides, like choosing a sports team to follow. Then they are ride or did with zero control. Fans and followers basically.

    It’s the ” little guy ” that gets banged up by the big boys and their accumulated power. Curiously, nobody knows what to do about this except complain and move on to the next billionaire funded team. And verily, they will go all in supporting their team as Just and Fair and Righteous.😀

    When The Left gains an appearance of habits upper hand, it is an earnings opportunity for Teh Right to do battle against the godless heathenry. When the right gains more ” control ” , the earnings potential shifts again. And people never catch on because it’s emotion and self centered driven. Everyone has been trained to look for somebody with da power to look out for their interest…. While shit talking other people doing the same. The lever pullers don’t usually get involved in these fights short of some opinion piece somewhere, or a. ” corporate statement “.

    Fascist authoritarianism can blunt all of this monetary power, and that might just be where we are headed in the future, because der people can no longer discern the con game. They cannot muster the will to fight in meaningful says against the correct targets ( as according to plan ) and will even join together to attack those that do unify in protest against those that would exercise constitional rights, and sleep like babies after doing so.

    I don’t agree with or have any use for Alex Jones or Dennis Prager or Stormfront or heartiste in its current form, but I’d never really around trying to end them. I think people have a difficult time identifying hateful, inaccurate shit for any number of self serving reasons, so they too are still entitled to gather round some figure or institution and diet pump in joy.

    I Read Stormfront and ” alt right ” content to be informed and to inform others in as great of numbers as I can, because while you are working and trying to advance and make a future for yourself and your family, all of the ” chatter ” concerning you and everyone that looks like you, will escape your vision. Yet it doggedly persists and is becoming an embedded part of the actual fabric. So, when people come together to shut some of it down, I’m non plusses for the most part because I’m just an observer at this stage. I personally think this stuff is better with an open platform for all to see, and I’d hope that ” all ” would make the effort to see incinerator finding out about it a decade late and getting irate.

    That way there’s no excuses.

    As far as equating ( equalist???) Rollo with these other sites, you never know what people will do, but there is this: you can tell truths and inform without hatefully disparaging. I have never, ever read one word on Trm that I think is offensive.there is a difference. The danger comes in when trm is falsely linked in with heartiste and Roosh and some of the other elements of the sphere that kinda joke their way through subjects. The danger isn’t in ten content, but in the broad brush.

    And there lies the problem with some blogs. That damn inaccurate broad brush. You gotta be able to recognize the massive and popular broad brushing.

    That’s how you’ll immediately know that I’m poor, have 20 kids out of wedlock, have a low iq barely above retardation, have a lengthy criminal history because criminality is genetic in me due to a smaller brain cavity, and that I don’t want to work for anything and would rather have guvment give me everything….. Oh, and that I’m not really American because i hate this country and maybe I should be thrown out, leave or be executed in some manner.

    Lol, think about seeing that shit over and over and over and over and over for a couple of decades straight.

    Yup. Some.real bullshit on the web. Maybe somebody might start overreacting in correction.

  35. Oh, I forgot to add that I don’t have a father ( my dad’s gonna be missed ) so I lack morals and direction.

    That about covers it.

  36. “Yup. Some.real bullshit on the web. Maybe somebody might start overreacting in correction.”

    So, what you are saying Blax is that you are getting triggered by douche-bags.

    “I have never, ever read one word on Trm that I think is offensive.”

    You know. You know. Why that is. Because you place too much importance on top down.

    Red pill has always been bottoms up.

    These top down things you invest yourself in?

    Vast Pendulums trying to suck you in their vortex. They work so can your young boys. Work.

    The trick is for your young men, you counsel, is to educated them on on the fact: If we’re here playing a Game. Don’t get sucked in to the vortex. You be better than them. Game well for you’re own enlighten self interest. Don’t fight the powers that be. Fuck them on their own turf.

    https://therationalmale.com/2011/12/16/truth-to-power/

    The laws of power all over again.

    https://www.tke.org/files/file/The_48_Laws_of_Power.pdf

    Come on Blax, teach these young guys the powers. The laws. How things work with Game.

    Competence and Confidence from overcoming.

    Your boys keep stride.They become better. They gain Mastery. They become more confident. Fucking Rinse and Repeat.

    Actions give them stories. Rejection is better than regret.

    Act.

    Then you have stories to tell. Go out and Act. Have stories to tell.

    Stop with the top down approach.

  37. Sjf

    I don’t get ” triggered “. That’s the latest internet speak flavor.😁

    I am teaching young men the Game, and they seem to be starving for it. But I demand that they understand and focus their energies on something outside of themselves because isolation within society is a plan for making better puppets.

    They don’t particularly need rugged individualism just yet, they need understanding of the playing field in 2018, the entire field, and they must get in the game in the greatest capacity that they can muster.

    Or wither on the vine and did a cowards death. Period.

    No tears.

  38. Blaximus
    Fascist authoritarianism

    I bet you cannot define that term.

    I don’t get ” triggered “.

    Yeah, you do.

  39. “I don’t get ” triggered “. That’s the latest internet speak flavor.”

    Of course you don’t. The young men do. And that’s the age old wisdom of the Stoics.

    Not a criticism of you Blax. Just I’ve observed too much lack of uncle guidance for the young men these days.

    Careful parsing of the narrative for them is needed.

  40. Blaximus
    As far as equating ( equalist???) Rollo with these other sites, you never know what people will do, but there is this: you can tell truths and inform without hatefully disparaging.

    So what?

  41. kfg
    The American Dream was gutted by the American Dream(tm).

    Yep. That was pretty close to Libertopia. It did not last for a lot of reasons.

    For example, there was a time when Fenimore Cooper’s books were best sellers, read by most people. Now they are too advanced for a lot of college students; big words, long sentences, no pictures. Reasons…

  42. Just my perspective and opinion.

    I’m of the belief that the shit talking bullies deserve an ass whooping. Yeah, they have freedom of speech and blah blah blah, but if people widely accept consequences for exercising rights, no one, at the end of the day, is exempt.

    But it’s natural to hate it when ” your team ” loses.

    Again, people as a whole week unable to discern ” hate ” when they see it ( a curious development in itself ). It’s like in revelations in the bible when it speaks of men not knowing right from wrong.

    That is the atmosphere.

  43. “But I demand that they understand and focus their energies on something outside of themselves because isolation within society is a plan for making better puppets.

    They don’t particularly need rugged individualism just yet, they need understanding of the playing field in 2018, the entire field, and they must get in the game in the greatest capacity that they can muster.”

    I bet to differ.

    Every red pill advancement I’ve come to has been realizing the deficiencies in my self.

    Masculine self improvement, along with help from The Tribe of Men.

    Rugged individualism has been my redemption. But, then again: The help of true Buddies. Who can give and I can accept their honest criticism. That is the masculine way.

    Don’t coddle and coach these young me with your own ego investments.

    They got enough problems with “the law”. With “Trump Nation”. Don’t think anything less than bottoms up will work for intersexual dynamics. It’s not about bottoms up and winning political bullshit. It’s about each of these men winning their inter-sexual battles.

    You can’t re-write history. Don’t try to.

    Rugged individualism got Blaximus places he always dreamed of and wanted to be playing in “those fields” of himself. Withing himself. His true 7 and 17 year old self. Without constraint from the powers that be.

    You don’t have to change yourself. You want to be your authentic self. Only with power.

    “Playing Fields” is external constraint. We’ve all played football. We’ve all had the same opportunities to drive down the basketball court like Michael Jordan. We all get to choose among the possibilities.

    Don’t set constraints to freedom on these you guys. Skies the limit.

  44. Sjf

    I.I’m not teaching these men red pill. They have much bigger fish to fry and 99% of them haven’t been blue pilled brainwaahed.

    Lol, that shit is a luxury.

  45. Re: playing fields. There are definitely playing fields. The problem is understanding how to get in the field and the how to play. For many men, not understanding there is a game afoot, and it’s played within artificial constraints, prevents them from even suiting up.

    They do have limitations until they can identify what they arr, why they are, and how to attack them. Not grasping this is a limitation.

  46. ” . . . there was a time when Fenimore Cooper’s books were best sellers . . .”

    It happens that last week I was asked to do a one off lecture on the expansion of the American frontier. What I actually did was frame the subject in terms of the meta-narrative of the Knickerbocker Tales.

    No one in the audience, despite being older and all having been to Cooperstown and the reconstruction of Fort William Henry, had read a single one of the books. Not even Last of the Mohicans, which was set locally.

  47. As for me personally, nah, I had to be taught. I had to rely on men that had already been down the road to point the way, and tell me where the potholes and forms were and how I could handle these things.

    Individualism came later. You have to know what You are being ” individual ” from.

    Thatn” skies the limit ” thing came with experiences. I’d never tell a young minority person that the sky is the limit right off, because there are limitations. If they cannot identify them, they’ll never get around them. That’s the plan, to make you take yourself outgoings game and off the field because you’ve done no due diligence for life and the structures you have never been exposed to.

    The sooner one can get this, the farther they will go on average ime..

    Not about my ego.😀

  48. “They have much bigger fish to fry and 99% of them haven’t been blue pilled brainwashed.”

    Fair enough.

    But how many of them are getting “fucked over” by life and “the authorities”. And using that as an excuse to not be the best representation of themselves?

    How are you not merely trying to get them through “denial, anger, bargaining and depression”. ?

    I never got blue pill brain-washed. I did get beholden to outside forces. And Beta-tized. You did too by Oprah-Ization.

    One of my buddies caught me in a lie a couple years about what-the-fuck-I-was-going-through back then.

    He sent me straight about pure intention.

    One has to get his battles straight.

    These young me can be “Not-Blue-Pill”, and yet be still angry young men looking to score, looking for release from constraint, looking for agency, looking for power.

    Real Power is the degree to which a person has control over their own circumstances. Real Power is the degree to which we control the directions of our lives

    It ain’t going to fall in their laps and they ain’t going to fight the powers that want to lock up powerful men.

    So we get left with playing each own one’s game from the bottom up. Enlightened self-interest and good, good Game. Play the game. Get your foot in the door. Choose among the possibilities that present themselves to you. Gain Mastery. Out of desire to do great things. Put one step in front of the other. Act. Without resentment. Competence begets confidence and gets into a positive feedback loop. That’s essentially the Blaximus life story. Go with it.

    Not this shit about policemen, prosecutors, judges, politics and douche-bag capitalists like Trump. With the FI and Feminine supremicist doings, that will only get worse. And consume your thinking. Young men are evil, powerful, anti-establishment toxic masculinity little bastards that must be suppressed. That’s baked in the cake.

    Sneaky-fucker strategy is called for. ( And at times Crazy-Bastard Strategy). Unflinching-ness is called for. Non-reactive self enlightened go-for-personal-stats is called for on the ball field.

    These young men can’t go through life not being Blue Pill, but also *not having agency*. They are not going to do that without Acceptance of how the playing field is.

    The playing field is fucked. Accept it. Play better.

  49. “Thatn” skies the limit ” thing came with experiences. I’d never tell a young minority person that the sky is the limit right off, because there are limitations. If they cannot identify them, they’ll never get around them. That’s the plan, to make you take yourself outgoings game and off the field because you’ve done no due diligence for life and the structures you have never been exposed to.

    So what you are saying is that there are limitations?

    You are wrong.

    Dammit Blaximus you aren’t, there, telling your’re life’s realizations.

    To you’re own heart/soul be true.

    You know and got this.

    Don’t lie to these young men.

  50. Sjf

    Trust, I’m not lying to these young men. If they listen to ” systemic dictum “, that’s where they lies lie. Most of them aren’t angry at all, don’t feel down, or any of that. Shanghai want and need are straight, no bullshit realistic answers.

    Example: a prosecutor/da was on stage. The discussion centered around sentencing disparities with graphs and charts and videos and shit. I said.my piece,.a.few other speakers said their piece, and we took some questions. A young highly muscles man stepped up to the Mike and asked the prosecutor – ” where do you live? “, da answered ” x ” town. Young man said ” that’s what, 30 miles from here? ” da : ” yes. About that “. The young men laughed and said ” if I come to your office,.can.we.go out to lunch and have a decent conversation? “,/da responded affirmative.

    In order to get to The carefree side of life, these Guys have to navigate the systemic hazards. They cannot afford to ignore it. It must be addressed en masse. That’s been lost over time. Now a new narrative is taking hold and becoming permanent. Time is running out for these men to stand up and directly address these things – but they have to known what to address and how to address it.

    I was taught this at a young age, in turbulent time. The narrative of my youth is being rewritten negatively retroactively ( filled with socialist and communist..lol.😁 ). Injustice doesn’t matter as much as political affiliation or economic beliefs. This is part of what they will face going forward and it’s paramount that they understand this stuff because it drives the limitations.

    The times currently aren’t turbulent. That’s due to the men not knowing how to step up. That’s my generation’s fault. We dropped the ball. So what was left was ” society “, and that’s always a precarious position to be in – looking to society for guidance.

    I don’t know sjf. This is a bit beyond my ability while holding down a full time job. I’ve sounded the alarm for help at this point, but I don’t want many of the current drop of ” leaders ” because if they could actually lead, these young men wouldn’t be in this predicament in the first place.

    Funny thing though, I never a ton of support from a lot of law enforcement that attends. Even though I tell men to do whatever they have to hold officers and brass accountable. Evidently they listen beyond that point.😁

  51. “I don’t know sjf. This is a bit beyond my ability while holding down a full time job.

    He won in the end by not placing importance on them. And lots of non-helicoptering “support” by me.

    Looks from his twitter feed like Trump is about to enter the fray on censorship.

    He questions who is making the decisions and he says that everyone ‘good and bad’ should be allowed to participate and you’ll ‘just have to work it out’.

    He needs to because he has to release the lefts hold on the narrative before the next election. It’s just another part of his war on the media.

    If there isn’t already a law (and I expect that there is somewhere) it would be simple to introduce a bill making it an offence to impede or deny a persons access to their constitutional rights.

    Once you’ve made the overt decision that anyone can say anything and everyone else has to ‘man up and get on with it’ you’ve cured the problem.

    Just lock up Zuckerberg for interfering with free speech and watch the snowflakes melt.

    I’d just love it. I’d celebrate with champagne and dancing girls..

    Go long on antidepressants.

  54. By the way – he already has Zuckerberg banged to rights. Publicly confirming that he did indeed shut down and deny people their free speech because he more or less didn’t like/agree with what was being said.

    It’s just that Zuckerberg thought he was defending himself against something else when he was sat on that cushion.

    As usual Trump is 100 steps ahead.

  55. 100 steps ahead almost like it was a script. Hard to tell who are the useful idiots now-days.

  56. YouTube loses megabux per annum”

    It’s a loss leader….maybe.

    Google makes it money off search. They can afford to lose a hundred mil or so. Would it be better for their overall business to cede all those eyeballs to another company? Not hardly. Google knows Facebook has in some ways a better ad platform and they are kissing ass right now with advertisers and publishers to maintain the status quo. This company has not been very innovative since it developed it’s search engine. It has acquired almost more than it has built. AdSense, Doubleclick Bid Manager and Doubleclick for Publishers were acquired.

    An interesting tidbit is that the CIA’s investment firm In-Q-Tel helped Google get off the ground.

    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-08-28/how-cia-made-google

    I’m sure the government means well and all. You know they are always looking out for our better interests.

  57. @Palma

    Publicly confirming that he did indeed shut down and deny people their free speech because he more or less didn’t like/agree with what was being said.

    Facebook doesn’t actually infringe on American citizens free speech in the way you think it does. They are only preventing people who use their free service to post on Facebook, not our right to speak, publish etc… on your own. One can start your own blog, site or create a deadwood edition and they can’t stop you.

    Sure it’s obviously shitty what they do, but most then why should any of us be surprised? On this site of all places we know what AWALT means. Swap out the W for a C. ACALT. All corporations are like that.

  58. “He needs to because he has to release the lefts hold on the narrative before the next election. It’s just another part of his war on the media.”

    Don’t get your hopes up on that. The Left controls the large majority of the media. And don’t be so sure that “Right” leaning media is necessarily better. The Matrix is the Matrix and it’s more convoluted than you might think. When was the last time you read in conservative mainstream media anything about the nature of the Federal Reserve? How well did the mainstream media inform the public about the discovery of over a trillion dollars worth of minerals underneath the ground in Afghanistan?
    https://www.wired.com/2010/06/no-the-military-didnt-just-discover-an-afghan-mineral-motherlode/

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mining_in_Afghanistan

    The media (left and right) does a marvelous job at creating noise. You need consider what they are not covering in order to broadcast and publish ad nauseum the crap they do. Looky over here, not there.

    You can read into that whatever you want.

    “If there isn’t already a law (and I expect that there is somewhere) it would be simple to introduce a bill making it an offence to impede or deny a persons access to their constitutional rights.”

    Another law to protect our Bill of Rights? Oh bother.

  59. @Roused

    Ok

    But there aren’t many men like Trump.

    Posdibly 25-50 on the planet have his combination of intelligence, street smart and balls.

  60. At a quick look over, it would have been difficult for them to have constructed a lower data quality methodology. Cross cultural observational meta-study, self-reported, reporting only over a small fraction of the term of the observation. The potential for bad data and confounders is huuuuge.

    The maximum range in lifespan difference between people who were already of advanced age (over 50) was only 4 years. We’re not looking at lives cut tragically short.

    The only metric for “health” was all cause mortality.l I find that pretty meaningless without knowing the actual cause of death and the circumstances of it.

    Here’s a picture of an 84 year old man:

    Say he dies tomorrow, from a motorcycle road racing accident, or perhaps a heart attack, but while moving a piano.

    Another 84 year old man:

    He doesn’t die for another 4 years, but he spends it in bed stuck full of tubes.

    Which one was healthier? Which one would you rather be?

  61. “But there aren’t many men like Trump.

    Posdibly 25-50 on the planet have his combination of intelligence, street smart and balls.”

    Trump is just another flavor of what we’ve had before, except he is making more noise with his tweets and irreverent comments that piss off the left and the politically correct. Trump is not making America great by smashing the Matrix, he is just the latest elected player in the larger scheme. Don’t ever expect a federally elected official to try and smash the Matrix, it will crush that individual without remorse.

    While there are certain tactics and rhetoric that Trump uses that we enjoy or believe are useful, it’s all business as usual. If anything the noise levels have increased incredibly along with polarization. The shrill cacophony from the left and right has reduced civil discourse into wishful thinking. A bottom’s up approach is the only way to make change for individuals, and in the long run our society as a whole.

    Angry yelling on Twatter and other platforms about the FI, socialism etc… does serve a purpose. It helps wake men up to the hell is going on. But incessant screaming that we’re fucked doesn’t fix anything. The amount of anger and unguided emotion in the sphere keeps the injustices and irony visibly for sure, but without a larger strategy and cohesive strategy by major players it will continue down that same path. For those reasons it’s more important to approach this from the bottom’s up, and move beyond anger and depression about the status quo. That does not mean one has to like the status quo, but acceptance of what “is” is required before one can understand how to navigate mine fields and work on yourself. After that working with others who are receptive can be done. We all know the dangers and frustration of trying to get others to realize what the Red Pill is.

  62. @KFG: even assuming there is a correlation, I did suspect it could be a correlation but not causation thing, that people eating more protein are leading more active lives which are riskier (for example, which you also mentioned).

    Unfortunately with things being so muddled with funding for research often coming with conflicts of interest built-in, I can’t even count on there being a true correlation.
