The Truth About Standards

Most men never vet women for anything like long term acceptability. A lot of guys would have you believe they have high standards for the women they self-righteously allow into their lives, but for the most part this is internet posturing from Trad-Cons and ‘spergs‘ who’d like their circle of virtual friends to believe they have more options, or more learn-ed wisdom, than other men. After-the-fact rationalizations about how discerning a guy was in choosing his wife or girlfriend are a necessary insulation for men’s egos when they come into the Red Pill community. They get uncomfortable when the Red Pill Lens forces them to take a better look at their own choices.

The flip side to this are the guys who’ve already been burned by a woman, and by association the totality of Gynocentrism. They also tend to reverse engineering their lack of vetting. A wife who was once his Quality Woman becomes the bitch who turned on him – the living example of all women and their Hypergamous nature. Likewise, these guys never truly vetted their ex. In someways they may have been as equally naive about the nature of women as the guy still married and self-convinced that he’s done his due diligence in selecting the perfect mate.

Now add to all this a religious belief-set that is founded on marriages staying solid foundations of family formation and resistant to divorce (thus ensuring contentment and righteous living). Here we add another layer of self-blinding on top of men’s haphazard long-term mating strategy founded on his necessitousness. Surely a man’s true religion is the key to a loving and happy wife, appreciative children, strong family ties and quality of life? Men will always seek validation in the choices they invested their lives in – particularly in the face of realities that contradict them.

All of this is related to men’s long term mating strategy. I’ve written extensively on men’s innate mating strategy and the existential importance of men ensuring their own paternity. But just as women’s Hypergamy is a manifestation of their biological nature, so too are men’s imperatives in their own mating strategies. However, a distinction needs to be made with respect to Alpha Fucks/Beta Bucks equalist comparisons with women’s strategies. Men and women’s mating imperatives are both antagonistic and complementary depending on the nature of the men and women coming together to reproduce.

Men’s innate, unconditioned, biological imperative is unlimited access to unlimited sexuality. Left to his own volition, and unimpaired by women’s Hypergamous filtering strategies, men’s innate drive is to opt for variety of sexual experience.

Critics will counter with “Well, women look for variety too dontcha think?”

While there is some truth in this, women’s desire for broader sexual experience is motivated by a search for better quality in the men she has sex with, not quantity per se. Monogamy (as we know it) is really a tool for low SMV men to socially ensure reproduction and paternity (at least in theory).

For men the motivation is about quantity. Yes, men love variety in women. Yes, men would rather there be no hindrance to getting to that sexual experience with that variety. This is why pornography is ubiquitous today, and has always been a motivator for men – unlimited access to unlimited sexuality. There’s a reason why young Muslim men are promised 70 virgins in paradise if they martyr themselves. Variety and ensured paternity, even if it has to be in the afterlife, is clearly a strong motivator for men. Rockstars and religious zealots all strive for the same goal, they just come to it in different ways.

Priorities

Men are so motivated by sexual experience that it supersedes the need for food. Research shows brain cells specific to men fire up when mates are present and override the need to eat. Take this as you will, but it does reinforce the idea that for men, sex is in fact a biological need.

Left unhindered human (Alpha) males will opt for securing multiple breeding partners; in some cases sequestering them for his long-term use. Locking away harems in secured compounds is something powerful men have done since our tribalistic past. Secure mates – secure paternity with them. There’s a reason why eunuchs guarded harems. The notion that men and women were ever naturally monogamous is an idealistic social convention. True monogamy in the animal kingdom is an extreme outlier. It’s just this prioritization of sexual opportunity that makes vetting women for monogamy compete with reproductive opportunism.

Strategic Pluralism

Most men are not Alpha males. The vast majority of men in this life and in eras past only had sexual access to a precious few women in their lives – if at all. Even in social conditions that rewarded monogamy and punished infidelity men and women have always found ways to manifest their antagonistic mating strategies. As few as 8,000 years ago (post agrarianism) 1 male reproduced for every 17 females. And as few as 4,000 years ago women were out-reproducing men. Again, read and make your own conclusions, but the point is human mating strategies find ways to circumvent social conventions.

On paper, monogamy is not a bad idea. As a social convention monogamy has been a stabilizing force in human evolution, but it in no way aligns with our innate sexual proclivities. Monogamy is a sexual strategy that primarily benefits low SMV men because most men will never experience (relatively) unlimited access to unlimited sexuality outside of pornography.

In Red Pill spheres we encourage men to consider themselves the prize. I personally believe that the most important step in unplugging a guy from his Blue Pill conditioning starts by internalizing the concept of Mental Point of Origin, but why is this often the most difficult step for men? It’s hard to think of oneself as a ‘winner’ when all a guy has done is lose for most of his life. The numbers don’t add up, and all the pep rallies a guy can pay for wont account for much until the day a girl actually responds to the “new you“. Feeling good about yourself is great, but most men want a solution to their sexlessness. Remember, sex really is that important to your male hindbrain. Food < Sex, got it?

According to Strategic Pluralism Theory (Gangestad & Simpson, 2000), men have evolved to pursue reproductive strategies that are contingent on their value on the mating market. More attractive men accrue reproductive benefits from spending more time seeking multiple mating partners and relatively less time investing in offspring. In contrast, the reproductive effort of less attractive men, who do not have the same mating opportunities, is better allocated to investing heavily in their mates and offspring and spending relatively less time seeking additional mates.

From Why Is Muscularity Sexy? Tests Of The Fitness Indicator Hypothesis

A lot of men get confused about the masculine imperative, but for the most part I think Strategic Pluralism Theory outlines most of mens’ mating strategies. In the Pareto Principle I delved into how women separate men into different sub-groups. The popularized oversimplification of this goes something like this:

“20% of men are fucking 80% of women.”

This is a misnomer. Granted, it used to have the good intention of getting men to believe that a small percentage of guys are having sex with a majority of women, and well, it might as well be them, right?

I’m sure that was meant to be a kind of motivational encouragement for guys learning Game, but it’s effectively wrong. The reality is 100% of women are interested in fucking about 20% of guys. We can see this repeatedly illustrated in various online dating stats and the realities of what Tinder has done to the SMP. But that’s the principle, not the practice. Just because a woman wants to get with a twentieth percentile man in no way means she will be getting with that guy. The issue here is the want not the get.

The Scarcity Mentality

Most men live in a state of sexual scarcity. So to implore a man to believe he’s actually the prize, or he should consider himself the prize, is an alien thought to him. Whether he acknowledges it consciously, his hindbrain understands the realities of his present-state sexual market value and it understands the reproductive equation it’s tasked with solving in (hopefully) a prosocial way.

Any time a woman actually shows an intimate interest in a low SMV man he will instinctively overlook the “deal breakers” his rational mind would otherwise give him pause to consider. Remember, sex supersedes hunger in the evolved scope of things for men. There are no considerations for ‘red flags’ with a woman when reproduction is of more strategic importance to his hindbrain.

When I’m listening to shows like Before the Train Wreck I hear the same predictable problems voiced by young men over and over again. There are consistent red flags these man should’ve seen before committing to a woman. And as a third party to this, we’re always dumbfounded by how the guy couldn’t have seen the signs before acting or committing to a woman’s mating strategy in order to facilitate a compromised version of his own strategy. Men’s rational process (particularly young men’s) are bypassed by sexual instinct and the hindbrain realization that his breeding opportunities are few and far between.

75% of college men would agree to have sex with a (semi-attractive) female they just met on campus while 0% of women would do the same with an unfamiliar male. Most men simply do not vet women for long term compatibility. The nature of our biology and our access to reproductive opportunities makes vetting a hindrance to solving a reproductive equation. In short, most men can’t afford to miss out on breeding opportunities.

As I outlined in Instinct, Emotion and Reason, our rational process requires time to be fully useful to us. The Instinct and Emotional processes are far quicker in their assessments and immediate effect on us. While men may innately prioritize reason before emotion, Instinct beats all other processes in speed and efficiency – if not accuracy. In our feminine-primary social order we further complicate (and disadvantage) men today by teaching them that their emotional response is the “correct” one to base decisions on. We conditions men to prioritize the Emotional process from a very early age. Again, all this makes actually vetting a woman for intimate acceptability almost offensive to the average (Beta) man today.

And this discomfort with holding any standards for women to receive his intimate approval also serves women’s sexual strategy.

You Just Got Lucky

There is a social aspect that comes into play with respect to men pairing up with women. As western societies have become more gynocentric the need to establish limitations on men’s mating strategies, and the simultaneous unfettering of women’s strategies, becomes apparent. In short, men simply aren’t allowed to hold standards for women to follow. And it’s offensive for men (not women) to even suggest the criteria women might need to ‘live up to‘ for men’s consideration of commitment.

Rich Cooper’s engagement on this one Tweet should illustrate what I’m getting into here. I’ve seen other variations of this message serve as outrage fodder for local news programs. The point is that a man making even marginal requirements for a man’s investment in a woman is met with extreme hostility. If your goal is getting social engagement there’s no better way to get it than by having the audacity to tell women they should qualify to a man – in any context. The idea that there is a man somewhere on planet earth who would voice his conditions for intimacy with women is unconscionable in gynocentric society.

But why? Why do women and their ‘allies‘ become so incensed by this? Because it commits the cardinal sin of the female power structure; it removes a degree of control away from women’s Hypergamous choice. If a woman must qualify to a man – in any context – it also sins against the maxim of the Strong Independent Woman®:

Never do anything for the express purpose of pleasing a man.

Notice how hostile women become when any man would place conditions on his terms for intimacy/commitment. This is a challenge to women’s unilateral control of Hypergamy in the social order. But more so, it is an affront to women’s Existential Fear:

The Existential Fear in women is that their innate Hypergamous Filter, their Feminine Intuition, might be fooled, and by being fooled she may either die or have her reproductive potential compromised for her lifetime by bearing and raising the child of man who is a suboptimal Hypergamous choice for her – a man who exerted his will over her Hypergamous choosing filters.

That a Beta male would ever hold conditions for his commitment triggers indignation in women.

Even Alpha men must never put terms on their commitment; men should feel blessed that any woman would have them. When Beta men reflexively default to social self-deprecation around their wives or LTR we see this social convention confirmed. We are conditioned to feel “lucky” that a woman lowered her standards to accept a man as her mate.

This is the intersexual poker game women play with men on whole. Entitlement, solipsism, anxiety over optimizing Hypergamy, all that competes with the foreknowledge that her attractiveness will decay over time. Women’s hindbrains know that their sex appeal, their agency in achieving that optimization, is ultimately perishable. Now add to this the anxiety that a Beta male might ‘trick’ her into choosing him as a mate and you can see why the Sisterhood will rally against men holding any demands for their interest in a woman.

Men often acquiesce to the mindset that they ought to feel fortunate that a woman would ever have them. They also foster this necessitousness in other men, usually as a form of Beta Game.

This endemic sense of metaphysical gratitude is what prevents men from even considering having standards for women. It also polices other men from holding standards themselves. How dare you be so arrogant as to expect a woman to live up to your demands? Just be glad the gods took pity on you and granted you a wife when so many Incels are at home with dick in hand. Tsk, tsk.

When a man ever has the temerity to evaluate women’s worth he’s made into a pariah. Today we expel boys from school for making lists rating the girls in their classes. Meanwhile women develop apps to do exactly the same for the men they’ve dated to inform other women. In a fem-centric social order only women are allowed to hold standards. This fact is a manifestation of a larger power dynamic between the sexes today.

A list of qualities a woman should have to please a man, to hold his long-term interests, goes viral and makes the evening news. Those men then become the easy, chauvinistic, villain to hate – “Can you believe that men like this still exist?!”

Eligible Bachelors

In my last post I made mention of how women were in crisis mode about the lack of ‘economically attractive’ men today. The articles about this crisis center on the idea of “eligible” men. Even the wildly popular show The Bachelor is built around the idea of men’s ‘eligibility’ to be considered for women’s approval. Qualify. Prove your quality. Be worthy of a woman’s love. Be ‘eligible’.

A female-primary social order – an order dedicated to maintaining feminine social control – needs to ruthlessly control which man is eligible for women’s consideration. It’s never the other way around. ‘Eligible’ is a way of psychologically maintaining a superior station of value for women.

Always bear in mind, women break rules for Alpha men and make rules for Beta men. But on a social scale it helps maintain the power imbalance if even Alpha men believe the same mythologies as Beta men.

This essay is the first in a series meant to establish a hierarchy of relationship needs that men might consider to help them accurately vet the women they allow into their lives and to enact these standards.

  1. Reading the posts here and building on my own reply Id like to add a couple more thoughts. Being an Alpha male is a lonely world. For a red pill aware alpha male there is a real disconnect from the ovewhelming blue bill beta world that we experience, observe everyday, interac with, all the time. You actually feel quite isolated, but on the other hand you don’t mind one bit. It just makes you become more of an observer rather than a participant in a blue pill world.

    But also, with red pill awareness brings, I feel, a real responsiblity both to yourself and those around you. If you can see through the bullshit, and most importantly act through the bullshit you have a real obligation to bring joy to your own world, but also to others. It is by taking leadership, being proactive, fucking women how they need to, but also using your natural dominance to help other peoples lives better, sharing some wisdom to those who can handle it.

    Otherwise an alpha / red pill awareness can turn into a selfish dark energy experience, without giving your gift to the world, and thats not healty.

    All men feel pain. I just compartmentalize, put it on a shelf. The past has no bearing on the future, so why let it control you?

    “Being an Alpha male is a lonely world”
    I don’t agree. Just because all the soccer dads sit together and chum it up, doesn’t mean they have some super connection to each other. It’s all pretty fake to me.
    Everyone’s lonely.
    Women are lonely even though there is 100 “contacts” on the phone and 1000 men in the “like” inbox online. That’s why she drove up from the coast and is sleeping in my bed right now.

  4. @Palma

    Men stealing some of a kill from a lion. That speaks volumes.

    @Sentient

    You recall correctly. I proved how incongruent with my Frame I was after having a needy meltdown with her and since then, no more sex with the ex. That’s over and dead and I should have really known better, should have known what would happen.

    I forgot that neediness is a no-no, regardless of your history with women. You do not get a pass just because you’ve been in a relationship and had sex with them thousands of times. My mind was just not strong enough to hold Frame and I fucked up. Lesson learned. That part of me has been more alive and kicking than I thought. I fell prey to unexpected emotions and weak Frame.

    Big part of that was going back on my own Frame within my mind, and not wanting any other women but her after we broke up. That’s where it all fell apart. The dissonance was also great, not understanding why I would feel more “Alpha” when I was with her, and then revert to being “Beta” after losing her, and flip my Frame upside down, right on its head.

    I’ve been adjusting my medications and sleep and workout schedule. Been having panic attacks multiple times daily and that needs to stop. It is a simple physiological reaction that is also at least partially genetic (father always dealt with an anxiety disorder for no discernable reason from a young age). Some people’s brains are just wired differently and are more prone to dysfunctions like this. I am doing my best to correct those dysfunctions from the ground up and structuring my diet/sleep/medication/training routine has been a big part of this lately.

    The Mystery Method audible is much better for me. I find I don’t do very well reading books. Listening has a much better impact on me and I seem to retain information more. I am going to have to take notes as well, and see if I can repeat the information I’m learning from Mystery Method in my own words. I am not quite there yet. I need the information retention lest I repeat half-assed Game with no understanding of what I’m doing or no specific direction or end goal.

  5. @Palma

    Yes, there’s that. But that would be just bat to the fence.

    And then there’s Bruce Lee and his 1-inch-punch:

    https://youtu.be/kXwOU5HzTZQ

    The how:
    https://www.popularmechanics.com/science/health/a3093/the-science-of-bruce-lees-one-inch-punch-16814527/

    Although Lee’s fist travels a tiny distance in mere milliseconds, the punch is an intricate full-body movement. According to Jessica Rose, a Stanford University biomechanical researcher, Lee’s lightning-quick jab actually starts with his legs.

    Because the punch happens over such a short amount of time, Lee has to synchronize each segment of the jab—his twisting hip, extending knees, and thrusting shoulder, elbow, and wrist—with incredible accuracy. Furthermore, each joint in Lee’s body has a single moment of peak acceleration, and to get maximum juice out of the move, Lee must layer his movements so that each period of peak acceleration follows the last one instantly.

    So coordination is key. And that’s where the neuroscience comes in.

    strikes that synchronize the many peak accelerations in one complex move—like Bruce Lee’s—were also the most powerful.

    This is where we get into capital G Game.

  7. “We have to be very careful, when dealing with humans, to avoid baptizing as normal/desirable that which is merely “natural” in a sense that is determined apart from the need for stable social relations — that distorts much more than it enlightens when were are discussing an inherently highly complex social species like homo sapiens.”

    Chapter 26 of You Are Not So Smart by David McRaney:

    Dunbar’s Number

    THE MISCONCEPTION: There is a Rolodex in your mind with the names and faces of everyone you’ve ever known.

    THE TRUTH: You can maintain relationships and keep up with only around 150 people at once.

    Think of a cup completely filled with water. You try to add one drop to this cup, and one drop spills out. You try to pour a cup of water into it, and a cup of water spills out. This is called a zero-sum system. To add anything to it you must remove an equal proportion.

    The bank of names and faces and relationships in your mind, the one you use to keep up with who is a friend, who is a foe, and who is a potential mate—this bank is a zero-sum system too. The reason for this doesn’t really have to do with how much space you have to keep the information, it has to do with how much energy you have on tap to devote to worrying about your place in your social world.

    In other primates, social relationships are maintained by grooming—picking bugs off of one another. You don’t go to a Mad Men party and dig around in your friend’s hair while watching the show. But getting together for any reason is still a grooming behavior. You hang out, work on projects, and talk on the phone to keep connected. Visiting friends just to shoot the shit is the human equivalent of picking ticks off of one another’s backs. As technology has allowed you to be farther and farther apart yet still keep in touch with loved ones, your grooming behavior has remained constant. In fact, most of your innate gregariousness works as it always has by adapting to the norms of the era. In modern life, human relationships are no longer separated geographically. You can probably start with any one person alive and play six degrees of separation to get to any other person. Modern humans are deeply interconnected.

    But you can’t keep up with all those people and their connections, not in a real social way—you are not so smart. The truth is, out of this cluster of humans you can reliably manage to keep up with only around 150 people. More specifically, it’s between 150 and 230. Giant cities full of other humans, Internet social networks with hundreds of people sharing status updates, corporations with branches around the world—your brain is incapable of handling the multitude of human contacts populating these examples. All those personalities and quirks, the history of your interactions with each, it becomes a giant file of social information that takes constant maintenance. Psychology has shown us the brain is not like a hard drive, so the problem with too many relationships isn’t a space issue. The problem is more about the economic limits of your mental human relations department.

    Why is this?

    The neocortex of primates is the part of the brain responsible for keeping up with others. We can’t be certain of what forces shaped the size of this part of the brain, but for each primate the size of the cortex correlates with the size of the average social group. Apes live in small groups; humans live in big ones. Robin Dunbar, the anthropologist who first presented this concept, figures the size of the average group is directly correlated with how efficiently the members can socially groom one another. Dunbar says that efficiency is predicted by how large the primate’s neocortex is. According to Dunbar, the larger the group, the more time must be spent by each member to maintain social cohesion. Each person must do some grooming with each other person and then also keep up with who is friends with whom, who has a beef, and what each other’s relative status is compared to his or hers and others’. The complexity builds exponentially with each new member. If someone you know moves away, you start to groom that person less and less, until you start to touch base once a year, or maybe lose touch for years. It takes far more effort to stay connected once a friend escapes your direct contact. That effort takes away from the time you can spend with other friends. Your brain was shaped in a world where this time also took away from other efforts—like hunting, gathering, and building shelter. There is a maximum amount of time and effort you can spend—it is a zero-sum system.

    Since efficiency is the predictor of group size, you have an advantage over apes and monkeys in the form of language. Social grooming through language is more efficient than grooming through picking lice and fleas, Dunbar says. The preset amount of effort afforded you by your neocortex sets the limit on group size. To add more people to a group would ruin the cohesion. An unbalanced group fails. A balanced group succeeds.

    This upper limit shaped the way humans have organized throughout history.

    Sure enough, all the sciences that study tribes, bands, and villages have approximated ancient groups usually maxed out around 150 people. This is the approximate upper limit to how many people you can trust and count on for favors, whom you can call up and have a conversation with. Once you go over 150 people, Dunbar says about 42 percent of the group’s time would have to be spent worrying about one another’s relationships. It would take a lot of pressure from the environment for it to be worth growing a group to that level. Once people started coming up with ways to maintain larger groups, like armies, cities, and nations, humans started subdividing those groups. Dunbar’s number explains why big groups are made of smaller, more manageable groups like companies, platoons, and squads—or branches, divisions, departments, and committees. No human institution can efficiently function above 150 members without hierarchies, ranks, roles, and divisions.

    In the wild, it takes a lot of work to get a group of 150 people to cooperate and pursue a common goal. In modern life, you depend on institutional structure. As Malcolm Gladwell pointed out in his book The Tipping Point, if a company grows beyond 150 people, productivity sharply declines until the company divides its outlying entities into smaller groups. You function better in a cluster—that way everyone in that cluster is connected to one another and only certain individuals connect your cluster to other clusters.

    Dunbar’s number isn’t fixed. It can be increased or decreased depending on the environment and tools you have available. You most likely have a much smaller group of friends than 150 people, but when you are incentivized to connect to more people than you would naturally associate with—like at your job or in a school—150 is the point where your neocortex cries uncle. With better tools—like telephones, Facebook, e-mail, World of Warcraft guilds, and so on—you become slightly more efficient at maintaining relationships, so the number can be larger, but not much larger. Dunbar’s most recent research suggests even power-users of Facebook with 1,000 or more friends still communicate regularly with only around 150 people, and of that 150 they strongly communicate with a group of less than 20.

    The social Web is revolutionizing the way institutions operate, and the way people communicate, but in the end it might not have much of an effect on the core social group you depend on for true friendship. You can maintain a giant number of weak ties to people on Facebook, Twitter, and whatever comes next, much like you can in a giant company. Strong ties, however, require constant grooming. People who use the number of friends they have on Facebook as a metric of their social standing are fooling themselves. You can share videos of fainting goats with hundreds of acquaintances and thousands of followers, but you can trust a secret only with a handful of true friends.

  8. @Palma
    “Anyway that’s prob not perfect math, but it’s close.”

    Not as close, he has also initially taken higher ground= psych advantage to appear larger, footing advantage of better traction all coupled with the fall ratio is even greater advantage. Yet the younger Ibix with the lesser curl nearly unseated and uppercut him severely. There is a possibility the elder may have lost the battle without that advantage.

    “The dominant beast has learned that behaviour.. either by observing other fights or trialling the behaviour…”

    I would expect that since the beast is uninhibited mentally and has a pair of gonads, he has been in a great number of head butting contests and would chalk it up to reflexive and trialling or learned behavior.

    “= physical competence”

    Don’t hesitate.

  9. “I suppose one could argue that peace and widespread prosperity weakens the need for men to be masculine. But even if that’s true, I’d rather be living now as a ‘weak’ man than in Sparta as a strong one. “

    And you are not alone in that mindset. Multi-millions of men share this mode of thinking.

    To embrace weakness as a man is akin to a mental disorder. Men aren’t designed for weakness.

    Peace and prosperity doesn’t weaken the need for men to be masculine. Men allow themselves to be weakened because of peace and prosperity, or by some other machination that has arisen from all of that leisure time afforded by peace and prosperity.

    And when disaster strikes, those will be the first people to go down hard.

    I can see the peace ( kinda ) and prosperity stuff, but it’s got nothing to do with what I have to do. It’s just there in the background.

  10. And then there is this Chapter 28 of You Are Not So Smart by David McRaney.

    The 21 Convention, and future presidents of the manosphere, take note. And a special remembrance of YaReally…

    Quote:

    “Self-Serving Bias

    THE MISCONCEPTION: You evaluate yourself based on past successes and defeats.

    THE TRUTH: You excuse your failures and see yourself as more successful, more intelligent, and more skilled than you are.

    In the early days of psychology there was a prevailing belief among scientists. They thought just about everyone had low self-esteem, inferiority complexes, and a cluster of self-loathing neuroses. Those old beliefs are still reverberating in the public consciousness, but they were mostly wrong. The research conducted over the last fifty years has revealed the complete opposite to be true. Day to day, you think you are awesome, or at least far more awesome than you are.

    This is good. Self-esteem is mostly self-delusion, but it serves a purpose. You are biologically driven to think highly of yourself in order to avoid stagnation. If you were to stop and truly examine your faults and failures, you would become paralyzed by fear and doubt. Despite this, from time to time in your life, your personal hype machine sputters to a stop. You get depressed and anxious. You question yourself and your abilities. Usually, it passes as your psychological immune system fights off the negative attitudes. In some places, like the modern United States, this hype machine is reinforced by a culture of exceptionalism.

    This tendency to see yourself as above average is also bad. If you never see how much you are screwing up your life, mistreating your friends, and being a complete douche bag, you can destroy yourself without realizing how bad things have become.

    In the 1990s, there was a lot of research aimed at discovering just how deluded people were when it came to failure and success. The findings of these studies showed you tend to accept credit when you succeed, but blame bad luck, unfair rules, difficult instructors, bad bosses, cheaters, and so on when you fail. When you are doing well, you think you are to blame. When you are doing badly, you think the world is to blame. This behavior can be observed in board games and senate races, group projects and final exams. When things are going your way, you attribute everything to your amazing skills, but once the tide turns, you look for external factors that prevented your genius from shining through. This gets even weirder when you let some time pass. All the dumb things you did when you were younger, all those poor decisions, you see them as being made by your former self. According to research conducted by Anne Wilson and Michael Ross in 2001, you see the person you used to be as a foolish bumbler with poor taste but your current self as a badass who is worthy of at least three times the praise.

    This sort of thinking also spreads to the way you compare yourself to others. The last thirty years’ worth of research shows just about all of us think we are more competent than our coworkers, more ethical than our friends, friendlier than the general public, more intelligent than our peers, more attractive than the average person, less prejudiced than people in our region, younger-looking than people the same age, better drivers than most people we know, better children than our siblings, and that we will live longer than the average lifespan. (As you just read that list, maybe you said to yourself, “No, I don’t think I’m better than everyone.” So you think you’re more honest with yourself than the average person? You are not so smart.) No one, it seems, believes he or she is part of the population contributing to the statistics generating averages. You don’t believe you are an average person, but you do believe everyone else is. This tendency, which springs from self-serving bias, is called the illusory superiority effect.

    You are incredibly egocentric, just like everyone else. Your world is subjective by default, so it follows that most of your thoughts and behaviors are born of a subjective analysis of your personal world. The things affecting your daily life are always more significant than something happening far away or in the head of another person. When it comes to judging your abilities or your status, this egocentricity makes it difficult to see yourself as a number, an average. You find the idea repellent and search for a way to see yourself as unique. In 1999, Justin Kruger at the New York University Stern School of Business showed illusory superiority was more likely to manifest in the minds of subjects when they were told ahead of time a certain task was easy. When they rated their abilities after being primed to think the task was considered simple, people said they performed better than average. When he then told people they were about to perform a task that was difficult, they rated their performance as being below average even when it wasn’t. No matter the actual difficulty, just telling people ahead of time how hard the undertaking would be changed how they saw themselves in comparison to an imagined average. To defeat feelings of inadequacy, you first have to imagine a task as being simple and easy. If you can manage to do that, illusory superiority takes over.

    The self-serving bias and illusory superiority aren’t limited to thoughts about performance. You also use these mental constructs to perceive how you stand in relationships and social situations. In 1993, Ezra Zuckerman and John Jost at Stanford University asked undergraduates at the University of Chicago to assess their popularity relative to their peers. They took those estimates and compared them with what others reported. They were building on the work of Abraham Tesser, who created self-evaluation maintenance theory in 1988. According to his research, you pay close attention to the successes and failures of friends more than you do to those of strangers. You compare yourself to those who are close to you in order to judge your own worth. In other words, you know Barack Obama and Johnny Depp are successful, but you don’t use them as a standard for your own life to the degree you do coworkers, fellow students, or friends you’ve known since high school. Zuckerman and Jost had students list the number of people they considered friends and then asked if the subjects believed they had more friends than did their peers and more friends than the average student. Thirty-five percent of the students said they had more friends than the typical student, and 23 percent said they had fewer. This better-than-average feeling was enhanced when considering their peers—41 percent said they had more friendships than did the people they considered to be their friends. Only 16 percent said they had fewer. On average, everyone you know thinks they are more popular than you, and you think you are more popular than them.

    Sure, some of your faults are just too obvious, even to you, but you compensate for those by inflating what you like most about you. When you compare your skills, accomplishments, and friendships with those of others, you tend to accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative. You are a liar by default, and you lie most to yourself. If you fail, you forget it. If you win, you tell everyone. When it comes to being honest with yourself and those you love, you are not so smart. But self-serving bias keeps you going when the hype machine runs low on fuel.

  11. This rationalizing about the alpha/beta dynamic only confuses those guys who are still afraid to go for what they want and are constricted by their own fears, limitations and Sexual Market Value.

    Women understand this even though they may not be able to articulate it. They’re rather be cheated on by you with a hotter girl than have to dump you because you didn’t live up to their expectations.

    Recently I started plating a few girls who push for something more but are very comfortable with just being fucked but fucked well on an occasional basis than having a “relationship” that drains them.

    A few years back I tried being the “boyfriend” to a younger university student—taking her on dates, that sort of thing. She ended up leaving because she just wanted to be fucked and didn’t want any of that chocolate and flowers nonsense. Girls may SAY that want that but try doing that and you’ll be dumped on your ass….Lesson learned.

  12. @thedeti

    You must be unfailingly “Nice” and “kind”. She can treat you however she wants.

    You must conform to all traditional gender roles. She can conform to any roles she wants, or none at all.

    What can one do when he is in a game where everybody in his team agrees rules must be constantly warped to favour the opponent team? (And that has shaped in a certain way the mind of every woman?)

    Leave the playing field. Or play (and pay) as little as you have to in order to secure your goals, for example to pass on your genes, whilst trying not to hate her, and the game, too much, lest it harms your own health.

    I see no third way for the self-conscious, sexual-relationships-conscious, person, unless, that is, he doesn’t really actually enjoy being abused, in which case he’ll have a lot to enjoy.

  13. @walawala

    Women understand this even though they may not be able to articulate it.

    There is nothing they can articulate, even to themselves. So, yes.

    They’re rather be cheated on by you with a hotter girl

    That’s one of the things that fills them with joy, and makes them thankful for having you with them, actually.
    Like all types struggling to self-determine, they can’t respect anyone who can’t hurt them. But of course it has to happen in a way that allows them to not know it.

  14. @aeon

    I’d be lying if I said I knew what comes next. But things can not continue the way they are. No one is satisfied at this point. Not women, and not men. With the exception of the very small subset of people at the very top of the pyramid, nobody is winning out there. Not really.

    That’s encouraging to me.

    In my opinion, if you suppose that

    Problem: nobody is winning out there (except for a very small subset of both sexes)

    will lead those “losing out” to find and follow intelligent solutions to improve their results… you are assuming a lot (self-awareness, clear-mindedness, non-stupidity, being driven by rationality …) that really isn’t there.

    The average human, and any normal woman, when “losing” will react in a way that amplifies the loss, attribute its cause(s) falsely, and so on, instead of getting more aware and working towards a realistic solution.

  15. “Vickery was getting intimate with his girlfriend in a bedroom in her Fort Lauderdale home, according to the arrest report obtained by WPLG, when they heard a scratching noise coming from outside the window.

    Vickery went outside to go and inspect the source of the noise and allegedly found Akar standing partly naked by the window.

    A fight then broke out between Vickery and Akar while Vickery’s girlfriend called the police.

    Akar, who allegedly had a previous criminal record for prowling, was taken to the hospital after the altercation but died in the hospital from his injuries less than two hours later.

    Vickery told police that he has had to call the authorities to report a peeping Tom on the premises before.

    Vickery was arrested and charged with Akar’s death on Thursday and is now being held behind bars on a $100,000 bond while he awaits trial. “

    Well, it is Florida after all.

    Hmmmm….. Manslaughter seems a bit much. I guess he didn’t own the property or something?

    So….what can you do legally when a dude is naked and peeping into your window while you bang your girl? Do you just yell and make a mean face at him? Or should she have gone out and beaten the guy?

    Meh, I hope the charges get dropped or he gets off….on the charges that is.

    @Aeon

    “I’d be lying if I said I knew what comes next.”

    As would we all, some of us can make an educated guess based on a interpretation of history, factoring in the modern changes.

    “But things can not continue the way they are.”

    Fortunately they never do.

    “No one is satisfied at this point. Not women, and not men.”

    Satisfaction is fleeting we all experience it, not usually while we are sitting at a keyboard.

    “With the exception of the very small subset of people at the very top of the pyramid, nobody is winning out there. Not really.”

    If you define winning as pumping blood and air, being 6′ up instead of 6′ under and having a chance to join in todays struggle mankind is winning.

    “That’s encouraging to me.”

    Somebody has to grease the bot.

    “In my opinion, if you suppose that”

    botstulation

    “Problem: nobody is winning out there (except for a very small subset of both sexes)”

    Hypothetical.

    “will lead those “losing out” to find and follow intelligent solutions to improve their results… you are assuming a lot (self-awareness, clear-mindedness, non-stupidity, being driven by rationality …) that really isn’t there.”

    Live and learn isn’t just a figure of speech, it actually happens as constantly as change.

    “The average human, and any normal woman,”

    Women are humans too.

    “when “losing” will react in a way that amplifies the loss, attribute its cause(s) falsely, and so on, instead of getting more aware and working towards a realistic solution.”

    This type of thinking^^promotes loss,as change is constant we lose things and people to gain new ones.

  17. @AR re: considering sperm banks as a red flag

    Yes context matters, yet we’re talking standards to raise one’s children here. I’ve met some women in their 30’s and early 40’s who just refused to ever consider going the donor route. Those women certainly have their issues but they are not idiots and come off as solid adult humans. Those other women who are verbally careless and glib, at any age, about sperm donor options are now a no-go for me. A good vetting test after hearing such a sentiment is to seriously or laughingly ask “and raise a child without a father?”

    Btw, a good area to vet is looking for red-pilled men in a prospect’s family, and whether they are highly respected. I mean, if you’re choosing a woman who literally has never seen what we know as a healthy man in her life, how easy will she be able to recognize it in you? How much easier will she be swayed by current culture?

    @ASD re: training a ride or die woman

    I understand the importance of your question.

    Up until recently it DIDNT EVEN OCCUR TO ME to “train” a women, though I see it clear as day now, thanks to sites like this six years ago or so…

    Since being single (three+ years ago) I’ve gotten a few to that position, but I doubt whether I could maintain it, and even if I wanted to maintain it in a LTR.

    Right now I’m single father mode until my son naturally moves out of my realm and into the one of peers and other adult mentors. As I continue to solidify and enrich that relationship in the best ways possible, I’m really considering whether I want more children, and what they may look like for me, internally as well as externally.

    Thank you both for the good considerations.

  18. Great post as usual, Rollo!
    I’ve been happily married for almost 20 years. I got red-pilled about three years ago. Boy am I glad I vetted my wife and had a Dad in my life that modeled how to be a man! I’ve seen way too many of my friends get raked over the coals in divorce courts. You’re the voice of sanity.

    Hypergamy photo gallery:

    LOL @ Jeff Beta just like I did last year.

    As with Elon Musk’s divorces, this is proof that a man can be very rich but not at all smart about women. His new chick is going through her second divorce…child issues will be complicated…she’s over 40…not that hot…not that different from his first wife. So what’s the point? Probably the only thing he’s gaining is a girl who wants him vs. an aging girl who takes him for granted, but what’s the fix for that, again? From the pix and gossip over the last year plus, it’s obvious that she pursued Bezos and he’s so betaized it flattered him. That means he’ll just get betaized all over again with his new squeeze, because he’s clueless about women.

    In other words, he’s going from AFC status to … AFC status but with a time delay while the NRE lingers. Sad.

    It is a good set of images displaying the later phase of monkeybranching, no doubt, and thus very informative.

  22. Off topic question:

    Will the current national civil cold war (multiple Deep State coup attempts against the President which show no sign of abating) heat up? How should we play it in our own back yards if it does heat up?

    Thoughts?

  23. Beers, you don’t need a surface to push off of to get force. Look at how planes and rockets work.

    F (punch) = m1a1 + m2a2 +m3a3 …

    hips, shoulders, legs, and arms all play a role

  24. “Will the current national civil cold war (multiple Deep State coup attempts against the President which show no sign of abating) heat up?”

    Look and observe how people are behaving. And the trend.
    The answer is yes.

    “How should we play it in our own back yards if it does heat up?”

    That doesn’t follow from the first question. It is divorced from that. Avoid the noise and static and keep your signals clean.

    But it wouldn’t hurt to gain and preserve assets and wealth.

    Thanks for bringing up a worthless debate topic. Which shouldn’t be considered debate here.
    There are more pressing inter-sexual debate topics.

  25. “Will the current national civil cold war (multiple Deep State coup attempts against the President which show no sign of abating) heat up?”

    Yes.

    ” How should we play it in our own back yards if it does heat up?”

    Keep your eyes open and your ass covered. Avoid dead end, dark alleys. Don’t be averse to running like hell if that’s what it takes to live to fight another day. Die nobly, but only when you have decided it’s time to die and make them pay dearly for it.

  26. “Don’t be averse to running like hell if that’s what it takes to live to fight another day. Die nobly, but only when you have decided it’s time to die and make them pay dearly for it.”

    Ok that throws a thought into my mind.

    You are talking about playing not to lose. Which is appropriate to your demographic. And I’m slowly transitioning to. But not really.

    All these young guys. It seems to me, that in another realm. Not the political realm. Not the social realm (of two many cooks in the tribe. Too many fucking people who are Bell Curving the tribe to death…meaning the big tribe of hundreds of millions, and billions, not the tribe of <150. that you should deal with day to day…) but the Red Pill Realm of dealing with individual intersexual details and dynamics and agency and getting laid. Having relationships, etc.

    And all the young lost boys. The deal is that sometimes for young mid to late twenties men, it should be running into the fire. Deciding to live, really and truly live, best.

    It’s not end of the world for the young. Or the old. The old wise guys like KFG already know how to run and die gracefully, after a long life lived gracefully.

    But geez. The younger and middle aged guys can get a handle on what is meaningful and what the right direction to head in is.

    Society may go down the shitter, but it doesn’t have to drag you down.

    Just because ASD watched Hannity tonight. And then the Ingraham Angle…

  27. “You are talking about playing not to lose.”

    More like playing with the assumption of eventual and inevitable loss.

    “The younger and middle aged guys can get a handle on what is meaningful and what the right direction to head in is. Society may go down the shitter, but it doesn’t have to drag you down.”

    That is essentially Douglas Murray’s (40 years old) advice and I think it quite reasonably good and not incompatible with my own:

    Go to 40:39 if you want to just get right to it.

  28. Asd and Blaximus

    You cannot fire a canon from a canoe. Why?

    You two are playing stupid. I’ve read your reasoning for years. It’s invariably solid. Yet… You’re being contrarian, obtuse. You’re much smarter than this.

    To generate force, one needs grounding. Foundation. A place from which to generate power. Equal and opposite reaction. Get it?

    That’s your choice, like all the women with magical thinking. It’s unbecoming. Even the brightest, shrewdest individuals can be stupid, occasionally.

  29. Surely a man’s true religion is the key to a loving and happy wife … ?
    Ephesians 5 says, that a man is to cleanse his wife’s mind so that he may present her to himself holy and without blemish. So actually the wife needs frequent good guidance and correction to stay reasonably content. It is correcting her errant beliefs that should make her loving and happy. That is why it is so critical to choose a young teachable one.

    Men’s innate, unconditioned, biological imperative is unlimited access to unlimited sexuality.
    Which is why sex is commanded in marriage until both are satisfied. (1 Corinthians 7:2-5)

    Monogamy is a sexual strategy that primarily benefits low SMV men …
    Don’t forget the children also benefit greatly from monogamy. This guy says women are also greatly hurt by their own whoring:
    https://www.nationalreview.com/2011/11/four-legacies-feminism-dennis-prager/
    So apparently civilization and the vast majority of people benefit from Monogamy. We were all children once.

    In Red Pill spheres we encourage men to consider themselves the prize… unplugging a guy from his Blue Pill conditioning starts by internalizing the concept of Mental Point of Origin, but why is this often the most difficult step for men?
    Because of the blanket of lies and deception that have blinded people and continue to cloud their thinking. By being falsely taught that women are in the image of God Most High, just like men. Women automatically become equal, if not better than men. Rendering them piss-poor helpers and irreverent. Men alone are made bearing the image and glory of God. (1 Corinthians 11:7) Believe it, and internalize your divine status above all women.

    Our churches and society have inverted God’s order, subjecting men, made in the image and glory of God, to women whom they have pedestalized into goddesses that they worship above God Himself.
    They subtly teach the maxim: Never do anything for the express purpose of pleasing a man … men should feel blessed that any woman would have them.

    Why do women and their ‘allies‘ become so incensed by this … If a woman must qualify to a man – in any context?
    Because it blasphemes their internal goddesses worship!

    Men often acquiesce to the mindset that they ought to feel fortunate that a woman would ever have them … This endemic sense of metaphysical gratitude is what prevents men from even considering having standards for women.
    Once women are trained back up that men are “gods”(John 10:34-36) but women are “weaker vessels” made as an inferior second class sex out of men’s flesh and bones, they can gain this gratitude necessary to where they can become happy again that even a typical man would have them. A correct understanding of their lower status and their due shamefacedness will not eliminate women’s hypergamy, but it largely used to keep women’s hopes and expectations reasonable, back during the patristic time when that was taught. Women need to be taught that there is no goddess inside them, but that if they are lucky they can join together and become one flesh with a man in the image and glory of God, so they should marry young, before all the best “gods” are quickly taken.

    A correct understanding is the foundation for a solid society.

  30. Thanks, kfg. I don’t see social breakdown in the cities where I live in flyover country. Not even close. Will the trouble be started by Antifa with serious provocations? Or will some blue states do a “soft” secession? Or will there be obvious assassination attempts against the President?

    Trump doesn’t look worried and I think that he should be. Probably advised by traitors. If the President understood the scope of the problem, he’d have many prosecutors running grand juries and he’d be talking a lot about treason. Maybe even get some “outside” people to start marches to show popular support.

    The Democratic propaganda machine (CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, NYT, etc.) will generally ignore the Durham results, so I don’t see that helping the President win the popularity contest. All that will happen is that the rats will start lawyering up which has already started.

  31. “To generate force, one needs grounding. Foundation. A place from which to generate power. Equal and opposite reaction.”

    To generate a force, one needs to accelerate a mass. Rockets. Planes. Bullets. Grounding is optional.

    To transfer energy, you need momentum and to move some mass some distance. You need velocity and sustained force.

    Try standing on tiptoe and punching a wall if you don’t think you will hurt your hand.

    “Equal and opposite reaction”

    intuitive, but wrong

  34. Trump doesn’t look worried and I think that he should be.
    How would “looking worried” help?

    Probably advised by traitors.
    I doubt it.

    If the President understood the scope of the problem, he’d have many prosecutors running grand juries and he’d be talking a lot about treason.
    You truly think he doesn’t understand the scope of the problem he is being subjected to 24/7?
    If that’s true, he really is a moron.
    I don’t think that’s true.

    Maybe even get some “outside” people to start marches to show popular support.
    Most people who support Trump have something to lose. And the message is pretty clear if you offer overt support you are likely to be un-personed. But that’s nothing new, it has been going on since before the election (covert support landed him the presidency when the polls were saying he’d lose in a landslide).

  35. “Will the trouble be started by Antifa with serious provocations?”
    Yes, with a growing willingness for ordinary people just trying to get to work to push back.

    “Or will some blue states do a “soft” secession?”
    Some are already moving that way.

    “Trump doesn’t look worried and I think that he should be.”
    I think that’s just the way he is under pressure. His real enemies don’t have to worry when he gets hot, they have to worry when he gets cold. That means he’s getting down to business. Also don’t ignore the fact that he’s acting. Playing the role of president on the public stage as much as he is actually being president behind the scenes. He’s always been a role player. That’s what made him such a natural for reality TV. In a way this is just more reality TV to him.

    “Probably advised by traitors.”
    He’s had to fire people right up to his own front desk. I don’t think he’s unaware of the problem.

    “If the President understood the scope of the problem, he’d have many prosecutors running grand juries and he’d be talking a lot about treason.”
    Watch the second term effect. Still, the entrenched powers are massive. It’s not so easy to just run roughshod through them.

    “Maybe even get some “outside” people to start marches to show popular support.”
    Remember Altona. We don’t want that. Antifa does. The stadium rallies are working just fine and help control the environment.

    I’m not a doubter of the madness of crowds.

    I’m not sure what to think of the Ken Fisher (investment king) situ. Either he should get a Louis C. K. boner award, or he just needs better metaphors/analogies for “its not all about sex..”

    @KFG

    Douglas Murray (The Strange Death of Europe, The Madness of Crowds) notes from the video:

    This is almost impossible to reverse.

    If it’s over, how does Douglas Murray live a good life if it all just winds down…

    Live a good life as if you thought to live until yesterday.

    People leading by example.

    There is a difference between fight and resignation…

    You just have to work it out…

    Live the life you ought to live in the civilization you enjoy.

    Your attitude could/should be gratitude.

    There is a lot out there to have and to grab.

    Not zero sum anger and bitterness and blame.

    I’m and optimist. And I’m enjoying myself.

  38. The edit button disappeared.

    I forgot to add:

    The Ken Fisher problem certainly shows that the madness of crowds is placing more mines in the minefield.

    I don’t disagree things are harder. They just are.

  39. “In a way this is just more reality TV to him.”

    I’ll further note that this can actually be played as an advantage to him in some situations. Since he is obviously acting, presenting a persona, some of his enemies mistake that for him being insincere. Just an actor, a fake. But he’s not just an actor, he’s a con man.

    And when the con is on, he’s all in. That’s what makes the con effective. Call it Method Conning. He can recursively use that to con people who know that they are being conned.

    Conning other professional con men who know that they are being conned is what professional con men do for fun. It’s their sport. That’s the “4D chess” that gets talked about.

  40. kfg, Liz, my point is that if Trump understood the scope of the problem–Deep State, Soros (Antifa and “The Squad”), international socialists in other governments (remember Papadopoulos and Manafort as well as the Steele Dossier), blue state governors, sanctuary city mayors, the Democratic Party propaganda machines (aka faux news like NYT), not to mention the democratic party clowns–Trump would have twenty prosecutors leading grand juries.

    The current push started with the Obama admin when they sicced the CIA and FBI on Trump the candidate. None of what has been happening is accidental. There’s a combat plan that was produced by the Obama admin. I don’t think that Pelosi was in on it, but she has been coopted by The Squad who are Soros’ pawns.

    Trump has to screen lawyers to find prosecutors who can’t be bought or coerced and who aren’t part of Deep State. Sessions was a joke at Justice as far as fighting the civil war goes. It was obvious to me back then what needed to be done.

    Altona was a guy’s car being attacked by a group of Antifa thugs and one of the thugs got run over when the guy defended himself by trying to get away. The guy didn’t go out looking to run over people. His trial was a kangaroo trial.

    Any time you have two or more people attacking you, they are committing felonious assault and you have the right to kill to defend yourself, as far as I understand.

    If you fail to defend yourself in court and in the media, it’s on you.

    If you go out to confront Antifa without being lawyered up with money to pay fines and with media consultants and internal organization, it’s on you.

    I see the Alt-Right as being incredibly naive.

    If I were running the marches, they would be done right.

  41. Conning other professional con men who know that they are being conned is what professional con men do for fun. It’s their sport. That’s the “4D chess” that gets talked about.

    He does almost seem to be enjoying himself.

    I work with quite a few ” Andy Reid ” types, and most are in their 50’s.

    The closer I creep towards 60, the more I see that this whole aging thing ain’t no joke. But it just takes a bit of consistent, smart effort to not fall apart. Quaid looks good for 65 . Of course he doesn’t look like that younger version, but he’s not supposed to. I’d bet though that he’s stronger than the average 20-30 year old randomly picked off the street.

    One good thing about that young chick he’s with is that she can help to keep his mind ” younger ” in a face to face way.

    As well as FBI and CIA personnel. Not to mention the senate. Entire large and powerful organizations that you have asserted were already turned against him. That don’t happen easily or overnight. Especially if you’re politically vulnerable. And the nation is a powder keg waiting to go off. And you don’t want it to.

    It isn’t even his party. It’s one he commandeered against it’s will.

    First term, lay the groundwork. Second term, launch the fight. First term Battle of Britain. Second term D-Day. You can’t go straight from Dunkirk to Blitzkrieg, you’ve got to get your troops and boats back in a row first. That’s the way the game is played and everybody knows it. It’s an emergent property of the rules. First term get reelected. Second term do your thing. That’s why the nation is a powder keg waiting go off. That’s why JFK had to be taken out when he was. Everybody knew what Bobby was lining up – for the second term.

    Impeachment, impeachment, impeachment!

    They’re trying to keep the landing craft from getting across the channel, because they know if they hit the beach, if Trump gets a second term, the battle is on.

    Bravo! Bravo!

    However…. Given the stakes, as I’ve said all along. Impeached or McKinley/JFK’d…

  45. “Quaid looks good for 65 . Of course he doesn’t look like that younger version, but he’s not supposed to. I’d bet though that he’s stronger than the average 20-30 year old randomly picked off the street.”

    That flushed face isn’t just because a lack of adequate sunscreen. It’s from lack of adequate aromatase inhibitor. (…and not that there is anything wrong with that…)

  46. However…. Given the stakes, as I’ve said all along. Impeached or McKinley/JFK’d…

    Yep. If he doesn’t get impeached and removed, the CIA will assassinate him. They’re behind the impeachment anyway (“whistleblower” is CIA).

    You know I was kidding with that caption right? The biggest difference between the young and old pic is in tan and photography (pro portrait vs Tele snap).

    But yes Reids abound… Was getting a bite yesterday at a lunch place in an industrial area. The mass being supported by the average body was close to the point of failure. None of it muscle.

    Anyhow

    Off topic question:

    Will the current national civil cold war (multiple Deep State coup attempts against the President which show no sign of abating) heat up?

    [shaking… shaking… flip!…]

    magic 8 ball: Outlook good.

    How should we play it in our own back yards if it does heat up?

    don’t be a liberal/progressive for the last 3-5 years…lol… but not kidding… (at least with ANY public proclamations/exposure/associations (including any business/organizations that are ‘progressive/liberal’)… and including being a family member of one… or a staff member of one… or a family member of that staff member…etc)

    [shaking… shaking… flip!…]

    magic 8 ball: Concentrate and ask again.

    oh, right…right… and stock up on some more ammo… and food…

    [shaking… shaking… flip!…]

    magic 8 ball: It is decidedly so.

    lol… but not really kidding…

    good luck!

  49. Only a few weeks back the military wanted to leave Syria, and now that ISIS is defeated the troops are “ashamed” and “horrified” about leaving. Overnight.
    And somehow people forgot what was just said yesterday.
    Jedi mind tricks?

    gratitude is essential for happiness… and i try to practice everyday…

    but i’m not seeing very much evidence of it in the general population… people are wound pretty tight…

    They’re trying to keep the landing craft from getting across the channel, because they know if they hit the beach, if Trump gets a second term, the battle is on.

    and if trump doesn’t get that second term, the battle is on too… it’s just different terrain… as well as non-state actors coming online…

    good luck!

  51. Who in the hell gave “Darth Bernays” a down vote?
    That was brilliant. 😆
    Ah well..
    have a good day folks

  52. “However…. Given the stakes, as I’ve said all along. Impeached or McKinley/JFK’d…”

    Nah … get re elected and start a war with Iran/North Korea.

    That Murray guy is a homo that believes in female rights. What the fuck would he know about defending your country?

  54. Sentient

    I felt that Steve Lyon reference coming.

    That’s highly motivating. Think I’ll spend a few minutes stalking his Instagram ( in a masculine way…no homo😁) .

  55. “That Murray guy is a homo that believes in female rights.”

    So is David Starkey, but he still called out the execrable Laurie Penny for the jumped up public school girl that she obviously is. It was glorious, especially if you are familiar with his normal British academic demeanor.

    “What the fuck would he know about defending your country?”

    I don’t know, but that’s not what he’s doing. He has joined Peter Hitchens in documenting it’s death. The advice he gave was personal, not social. Take what is good, leave the rest.

  56. “Men’s innate, unconditioned, biological imperative is unlimited access to unlimited sexuality. Left to his own volition, and unimpaired by women’s Hypergamous filtering strategies, men’s innate drive is to opt for variety of sexual experience.”

    Rollo compulsively equates lower nature impulse with voluntary action.

    Volition is willful. Biological imperatives aren’t.

    Rollo does this purposely as his RP pseudo-science logic would quickly unravel.

    As long as man or woman both can’t choose, they both are held harmless for their actions. Right?

    Whateva.

    You still cannot discern the difference between description and prescription after several years…why? It’s a problem that leads to logical errors such as:

  58. “65YO Dennis “Coke” Quaid engaged to 26YO…”

    “People reported that Savoie also received a master’s at the University of Notre Dame and is currently working towards earning a Ph.D. in accounting at the University of Texas at Austin in their McCombs School of Business with an expected 2021 graduation date.”

    “According to People, Savoie graduated as valedictorian from Pepperdine University. During her time at the school, she reportedly dated actor Jeremy Piven.”

    lol she come with:

    pepperdine = 50K/yr X 4 = 200K

    Notre Dame = 50K/yr X 2 = 100K

    PHD = 50K X 5 = 250K

    550K in nondischargeable debt for an actor’s leftovers??? lol

    think of all the fresh new pussy you could buy in nevada for half a million bucks…

  59. @HABD

    Maybe pull a Talleyrand/Clinton…speak what people want to hear privately…leftists hear leftist narrative…rightists hear rightist narrative…wait for the right moment to declare and take action.

    I’m sure that the leftist spooks (CIA/NSA/whateva) have spies and agents in the White House. McKinley plot and gathering intel.

    RINO (leftist repubs) fifth columnists are prepared. e.g., Romney/Ryan/Rooney

    There have to be a few leftist generals/admirals who would try to use troops to stage a coup.

    Anti-Trump foreigners are a wild card and will likely help the spooks. Likely the foreigners are mid-level spooks. Maybe Putin/Xi.

    Trump needs prosecutors to go after corrupt RINOs.

    Trump needs to use Elizabeth’s methods to ferret out disloyal military leaders. Fake coups, etc.

    Prosecutors need to be sicced on Deep State. In progress.

    Trump needs to change up his schedule and stop being so predictable. Oh, wait….

    Maybe use the Border Patrol and Red State state troopers on California’s border with other states. Accelerate California’s emigration.

    Dig up dirt on leftist lawyers and sic prosecutors on them.

    Iran, NK lol…ain’t happening

  60. Five years from now he will be 70. cucked and 4X divorced.

    While she will be 31. Debt-free. single and ready to mingle.

    “think of all the fresh new pussy you could buy in nevada for half a million bucks…”

    Tell me again why I would wanna pay for pussy? Or why Quaid would?
    —–‐—————-

    He is paying for it just one step removed from honesty, and at massively inflated prices.

  62. “While she will be 31. Debt-free. single and ready to mingle.”

    lol… none of that^^^ sh*t addresses your question about your ‘own backyard’…lol

    How should we play it in our own back yards if it does heat up?

    your MAIN goal in your ‘own backyard’… IF (when) it does heat up… is to avoid being on some local non-state actor’s ‘local list’… when that dude (and possibly his friends) decides to come on-line… like the families of all those soldiers in Sinaloa were on a list before the sh*t went down with el chapo’s sons… when the local cartel boys down there ‘came on-line’…

    when things break, they move fast… ‘not being on a list’ is a good thing…lol

    but that^^^ sh*t probably won’t happen until some breakdown in the political process…

    like if something happens to trump (if those local dudes are on the right), or if trump gets re-elected (if they are on the left)…

    although, given the screeching from the left for the past 3 years, as well as their pre-disposition to act out in the street in groups…as opposed to individual action behind the scenes… with nothing really kicking off from that side…yet… i’m inclined to believe that any offensive local action will only happen if something happens to trump… for various reasons too numerous to mention…lol

    sooo, my advice is… don’t be an ‘identifiable’ liberal/progressive in your area for the past 3-5 years…lol

    IF something does happen to prevent trump from that second-term (absent a genuine loss in a fair and above-board election… which at this point is unlikely)… sh*t will likely happen ‘locally’ nation-wide…

    (and just remember… dorner was ONE, barely competent police ‘recruit/rookie’ with NO plan… and likely some mental illness in play as well… and his actions locked down LA for a couple weeks… AND had LAPD shooting civilians RANDOMLY… bc they were scared shtless… and that was AFTER advertising who he was AND publishing a ‘manifesto’ about why he was pssed off…lol… so they KNEW who to look for… they even had his PHOTO ffs…lol)

    since the deep-state side that would ‘prevent’ that second-term is overwhelmingly liberal/progressive/Democrat/etc… it would seem likely that those local dudes are going to be targeting liberals/progressives/Democrats/etc… in whatever flavor… and where ever found… sooo, don’t be ‘found’… ie ‘not on a local list’…lol…easy, peasy…

    this sh*t isn’t new… just look at history for the many… many… examples… civil war is anything but…

    when/if things go hot, your local area is probably going to be a ‘target rich environment’… even if it is in a flyover/conservative area… big city or small town, it won’t really matter… in fact, it’s probably MORE likely to be ‘locally eventful’ there…lol

    and just so you are up to speed on the calculus that i’ve seen… after the first one, they’re all “free”… sooo, YOU don’t want to be one of those ‘freebies’…

    don’t you think all those .gov liberals/bureaucrats/officials know this sh*t?…lol… why do you think there is such a frantic push for gun control…lol… although, quite frankly, guns are for pikers… the REAL force multiplier is food… and population density…

    “it will begin in the Rohan”…

    lol…

    good luck!
