Shots of Wisdom

Advice. To a boy: get dirty. To a girl: stay clean.

Art. The artist is a passive conduit to a higher truth, which he transmits through the filter of his personality, and then shapes its representation into material form. The more receptive to the transcendent, the more original in his filtering of it, and the more skilled with his medium, the greater the artist. The artist’s peril: his receptive, judgment-suspending disposition makes him vulnerable to liars with jangling coins who flatter his womanish vanity — that’s the career of the talented band U2 in a nutshell, with their channeling the Celt’s earnest spirit while squirting Moloch-globalist soundbites into each of their great songs.

Capitalism. Pax Americana has always been fundamentally unsustainable because it runs on the principle of strip-mining human capital for short-term gain.

Charm. Interact with women in ways that men would find annoying or even insulting: tease them, put them into defensive crouches, don’t give them straight answers (unless the answer is “no”). Conversely, talk with a man in a way that would bore a woman: respectfully, straightforwardly, focused on the subject.

Communism. Eastern European communism has produced its share of vile men. But whatever you say about that communism, it did not spawn the ridiculous men the way modern American communism does. The first time as tragedy, the second time as farce.

Dignity. I’m downtown with two friends, approaching one of our favorite brew pubs and seeing that it is uncharacteristically packed. One of my friends says “let’s go in, we can still stand in the bar area.” I said “No. I’m too old to drink standing.”

Depression. Driving home from work on a muggy, overcast June evening, dispirited in the wake of the Supreme Court’s rulings on gay marriage and Obamacare. Not so much gloomy about the political event itself as by the unexpected jubilation from certain quarters in my social circle, which felt like a personal betrayal. Then I remembered that my gym bag is in the trunk of the car. I was too listless to go, yet I turned the car in gym’s direction. “This will be a short, balls-to-the-wall workout,” I decided. Chest and nothing else. I went to a seated chest press machine (the barbell and dumbbell benches were all taken) and did two 20x medium/high weight sets. Then I added plates for two heavy five-rep sets. Barely finished the first set. On the second set, I completed three and a half reps, then muscle failure. The slow, silent cadence everyone began to feel was a welling of testosterone. On that same desperate day in America, one Donald J. Trump stepped forward as the future President of the United States.

Generations. Baby Boomers have always lived for pleasure and status. They had the Beach Boys and Rolling Stones. Our — GenX’s — anthem is Pearl Jam’s “Black,” the anguished howl of a dispossessed generation.

Happiness. Seeing your child laugh with joy.

Hate. Love and hate are two halves of the same passion. To love something is to value it above all other things, even your own life. Hate is what you feel for those who’d harm that which you love.

Marriage. If you want to have children, get married. Start a family and you’ll never look back — you have my word on it. But if children are not in the picture for you because of age or other reasons, consider these three things: (1) love, (2) sex, and (3) freedom. Pick two. As a single man, you can have sex and freedom, but love will be elusive. As a successfully married man, you can have love and sex, but your freedom is curtailed. And if the marriage goes bad, you end up with neither love, nor sex, nor freedom.

Oneitis. All women are interchangeable, there is nothing magical about any one girl… except — if she loves you. The love she gives you makes her “special.” If she stops loving you, she is no longer special and if she never did, she never was.

Pride. One potentially explosive situation you should avoid getting into is helping a pushover boyfriend when you see his girlfriend treat him disrespectfully. For example, you may be tempted to discreetly tell him “you can do better that take crap from a woman.” As he cowers before her, so will he find his nuts and get up in your grill.

Purity. The one-drop rule keeps a clean pool.

Regrets. The sole regret from my youth: not going for the kiss.

Time-Travel. Next time you’re on a subway platform in rush hour, pretend you’re visiting from 1985 and wondering why everyone is standing like a row of cranes with snapped necks.

Truth. Seek it, speak it, cherish it, live it, defend it.

  1. Some good pithy stuff PA. On Marriage – I’d add one thing… only get married when you want to have children AND are ready and willing to start paying for them within 18 months… Hold off if that is not yet the case.

  2. Regarding love and marriage: one reason why divorced men can find themselves so consumed by hatred for their ex-wives is the overwhelming passion aroused by seeing something which they loved (their family, their marriage) destroyed so callously and irreverently by someone who is seemingly unconcerned with that destruction. As has been stated elsewhere, it’s different for girls. Men love their families and their wives, women love the passionate embrace of a man who owns them body and soul; they feel nothing for the man who is merely feeding, clothing, and sheltering them. One is a “Man”, where the other is nonsexual functionary.

    Regarding everything else in your post; taking the red-pill with regards to women’s behavior has had an astounding effect on me in that I don’t see things as I’m told to see them, but rather how they really are. I’ve always been sceptical, but in opening my eyes to the truth of one lie, my eyes have been opened to all of the interwoven lies of the past 50 years. The Red Pill gives me hope for the future, as it merely takes exposing one lie for what it truly is.

  3. The artist’s peril: his receptive, judgment-suspending disposition makes him vulnerable to liars with jangling coins who flatter his womanish vanity — that’s the career of the talented band U2 in a nutshell,…

    Damn! You beat me to it by bringing up this subject first and then absolving yourself of the accusation i’ve been crafting.

    Meaning, I was going to wait for the next time you waxed rhapsodic and reverent about U2 and then quote the song “One,” which includes this anti-racist credo:

    Is it getting better
    Or do you feel the same
    Will it make it easier on you now
    You got someone to blame…..We’re one
    But we’re not the same

    Damn! Almost had you busted!

  4. I would like to make a post that requires an explanation, in advance. And i would ask for an allowance on it. It is not a parody, it is my thoughts on the matter, and it is the crude topic of sex, and specifically the very topic of how a man fucks. In the not too distant past this topic might be really off the rails, but it is pretty central Red Pill, and it comes up all the time – but i am just saying, that i am not here to yank anyone’s chain.

    In this marketplace, women just want a man who knows how to fuck them.

    Now i am just repeating back how i interpret the general consensus, gleaned from popular sites, and in my own words.

    That ability to fuck them like a man, that is the theme of the advice giving set that hangs out at The Rational Man now, some of which characters were pushed away from CH, in the great schism.

    But i have been thinking a lot about what just exactly is that ability to fuck like a man. It is a certain social and emotional intelligence or talent – and i don’t think it correlates at all with other skill sets, intelligence, or talents. In fact it may have some inverse correlation – seeing that every human being needs to have so much of something so they pass it on.

    Ok, porn. First of all, i advise against it – but man’s fallen nature blah blah. Some of the best work is from Russia and it features young people. And the male actors are very good at fucking the Russian girls – but these guys are skinny scrawny even and they don’t look especially remarkable or intelligent or athletic. But they do have that social and emotional skill set that they get to fuck all those hot babes – and it is just what they do.

    As far as what that skill set is, it is basic interpersonal confidence and also being not deficiently endowed and not smelly fat, and on top of that, having a regular awareness of presence and balance, in one’s own body – which trait is not evenly distributed. Certain people are higher in their heads (“lost in the clouds”), whereas others are more naturally balanced on their feet. There is term in neuroscience for this talent that “balance athletes” have, which term i forget – but apparently it is mapped in the brain with some specificity. It is commonly called “balance”.

    So the combination of interpersonal confidence and regular better than average balance. Without these things …

    Other people, sex will just be awkward. It’s like yeah, this fucking body your smelly hole! how embarrassing. There is not going to be that elegant confidence, and then so the approach of these lesser humans (but still human, still human) pretty much goes in one of two ways. If someone is strong and healthy they can just be like an animal and that will count as success, totally, to the woman getting fucked too. It is not a porn dance type of a fuck but at least it is the real thing.

    But the other approach is the non-approach and this is what a lot of guys are stuck with and despised. It is basically just the asking for sex, and the woman is the lead partner. The guy is passive and tentative, and ugly and stupid is how will appear. Because a lot of people are not healthy, and they are not confident, that is where they are at.

  5. Elk – it all just boils down to confidence… Balance is perceived as confident. entitlement is perceived as confident. Control of your body is perceived as confident.

  6. “but these guys are skinny scrawny even and they don’t look especially remarkable or intelligent or athletic. But they do have that social and emotional skill set that they get to fuck all those hot babes – and it is just what they do.”

    Also known as High School and College…

  7. Sentient – “only get married when you want to have children AND are ready and willing to start paying for them within 18 months… Hold off if that is not yet the case” — Yeah, there are all kinds of practical considerations to take into account when plunging into marriage. There is always an element of risk, and a more risk-averse way of going about it is to FIRST put a bun in her over, THEN marry her.

    Greg – “[wives] feel nothing for the man who is merely feeding, clothing, and sheltering them.” – I’ve wondered how marital dynamic was different pre-feminism, aside from the obvious economics of the time, with frivorce not being an option for women and men being more alpha, as we believe they were. Some latitude with regards to a female hindbrain-rocking smack keeping things hot? Men also being virgins on their wedding day helped keep the passion n their end?

  8. Nikcrit – songs from “The Joshua Tree” are more enigmatic than meets the eye. “we’re one, but we’re not the same.” What does that mean — we are one in God, but He wants us to remain distinct in this life? Then in another song, the words “I believe in Kingdom come / then all the colors will bleed into one” — if Kingdom Come mean’s Christ’s return, then that’s when humanity will be made as one. The inference could be that rushing the process ahead of God’s timetable is contrary to His will.

    Elk – there is a little-known Arthur Koestler novel “The Age of Longing” (1950), in which the female protagonist – a young American expat in post-war France – thinks about her ex-husband (an upper class art expert or something) and her current lover (a Soviet spy who was a short, ugly man). She recalls the ex-husband as “making love like a bird,” in contrast to her satisfying current boyfriend. She/Koestler meditated about Faith, and how men who lack it, lack that something that satisfied a woman, while men who have Faith will rock her world in spite of their other defects. In the book, “faith” was about post-Christian Westerners vs the Russian’s absolute faith in the then-ascendant Communism. In broader contexts, faith can mean something as simple as blind confidence in oneself.

  9. “She/Koestler meditated about Faith, and how men who lack it, lack that something that satisfied a woman, while men who have Faith will rock her world in spite of their other defects. In the book, “faith” was about post-Christian Westerners vs the Russian’s absolute faith in the then-ascendant Communism.”

    Perhaps this can be interpreted as “passion”…?

  10. As for the Great Schism, i am having a joke but others will know what i am talking about. Basically Philosophers on the one hand, and on the other the PUAs.

    Now the topic deserves more time (or less perhaps) than i can focus right now. But those characters (who shall remain un-named), and their views and positions, on women and on life – were somehow opposed, and those two opposing houses correspond to the two principle themes of that blog, which two themes would be (again) women, and life.

    The intersection of those two topics – women in the first case, and then politics (or life) in the second – has a lot of explanatory power in terms of what might be called the Metaphysics of Game. Realistically it is as simple as women are the prize of politics, and that is the intersection in a nutshell; but those two focal points represent different philosophies. The first philosophy might be called Poolside, and the second one … something a little … shall we say more stern: Mountainside maybe? Young men, old men. Sensual versus aesthetic. Body and mind.

    The question is how to women fit into life. Does a man focus on women or life? Even now there is that argument. Some guys are like “focus on women, enter into that pasture and fuck ’em all” and others are like “look just be a hard ass and do great things and they will come to you.” But these two attitudes do, in my estimation, to entirely different strategies that i referenced in my first post.

    A guy like me it seems i am unsuited to starring in porn movies and not because of looks, but because of social temperament, which tends toward distant. So i don’t focus on women, i focus on life and whatever accomplishments or aesthetics may be, and then with enough status. However, like i was saying, in the contemporary marketplace – girls require that they be gamed, because they don’t need you. The Life Strategy Alternative, for the mature man, is not the 1950s provider strategy, it is about being … famous, for lack of a better word. Not actually famous, but awesome! or just healthy and attractive and blah blah. I don’t mean to couch it in such “gay” terms, but there is an element of appearances and aesthetics that is feminine; but not actually feminine.

    The recent CH of the most gay shitlib face, i stayed out of that thread but is too simple. I mean what? is Jesse Ventura necessarily the best man because he has the strongest jaw. All those guys in that contest (in the pictures in the CH thread) were totally gay but the throught trends along that thread are that you can judge a man by his jawline. Do all the players here pretend to be rock solid killers. I know there are people who are like that. I am not, i avoid violence whenever i can. It has been bred out of me, since my ancestors learned to farm.

    I talk about this shit as if it is relevant, and not just personal – because the Larger Theme is what life strategies are working, and what are not. The living arrangement that we have, is in much flux. I have concluded my natural life strategy has largly been selected for me in advance, and now it’s not working so well.

    But to wrap up, and return to that point on the feminine element to aesthetics. Aesthetic is how we appreciate beauty, in our lives and in the world. And as we are part of the world, we ought to try and be beautiful – ourselves, in our appearances. Because what beauty really is is a clear face that reflects a clear mind. Or that is one form of it! There is a book called i forget but about the Amazon Junge people who are the most prolific killers of other people in the world, in terms of percentages. It is called In the Heart of the Forest, and it conveys how naturally adapted they are to hunting and killing, and one of the characters paints his face and is vain and unfriendly and the author asks him why he does that, and he answers, Because i am beautiful. But those people have a very childlike appearance – and they are the best killers.

  11. “we’re one, but we’re not the same.” What does that mean — we are one in God, but He wants us to remain distinct in this life?

    Ok, i’ll leave it at that, but varioius whites and blacks mixing is hardly the equivalent of ‘we all become one.” Case closed for now…lolzz.

    btw, since we’re off on another music tangent; our sole non-incendiary subject of discourse. I’m really impressed with this Dutch, i believe, singer-songwriter musician. For some reason, when i summon a mental guess of what you looked like, perhaps in younger years, this guy comes to mind….. Do folk from the Netherlands look like Poles and other Slavs??

  12. The slow, silent cadence everyone began to feel was a welling of testosterone. On that same desperate day in America, one Donald J. Trump stepped forward as the future President of the United States.

    Is he really the synthesis that you want to see as POTUS? Or a refreshing and awakening slap on the GOP status quo? I think dude is horrible on economic and labor policy—— everything the alt-right typically moans and bitches about in fact —— and he’s a horribly self-consumed scion who ain’t exactly no Working Class Hero.

    Consider this: i had a bit o behind-the-scenes knowledge more than a decade back when Trump was having that cause-celebre media feud with Rosie O’Donnell; it was pimped and sold to the masses as this sort-of tabloidesque battle between pre-60s white-male power-vs-post-60’s feminist Swippledom, etc. And in moments, Trump would hit the talk-show circuit and pontificate with mock-sincerity about how he felt it was really important to dress-down O’Donnell as the two represented a cultural battle between old-vs-new American values, etc., blah-blah.
    Well, from the get-go in that feud, about a half-dozen or so Trump advisors and p.r. people met on a near-daily basis with O’Donnell’s flaks and other subordinates, mapping out pithy retorts to each hand-crafted insult, and forming all sorts of mutually opportune business connections and opportunities. The whole friggin’ feud was totally manufactured; even non-jaded types unfamiliar with media know this in moments —- but since they have no real need to be rue in earnest over these matters, they casually in moments take this mediated buffoonery seriously!
    And there is absolutely no need to because the person at the center of this story doesn’t take seriously the titular purpose of Trump’s latest move.

    This is a p.r. stunt and down-the-line business-opp set-up on Trump’s part; ditto for Ben Carson.

  13. You have quite the talent for writing. I just scanned all of your blog posts to the very first one.
    But you really must install a reply option to your commenters, some of them are quite good too

  14. Hey PA, nice to see you started your own blog! It’s been a while but I have some good memories from when we were both regulars on some of the best blogs that ever existed.

    Vladimir

  15. The mentality is of liberalism is consistent with a life strategy of r-selected breeding patterns and associated behaviors.

    This idea is pretty “hot” – it’s not mine (obviously) – but it seems so clear now, in reading through a typical internet comments page and arguments, of how all that liberal mentality, its arguments but more the feel behind it, and how it is accepting of defeatism – all that is consistent with that animal behavior.

    There is a good page at Kunstler this week with 500 comments. Kunstler dot com is traditionally liberal but it is not so simple. The topic is the media and its decay and it is fun to see them lament NPR. But I point to that page as an example of the contemporary liberal mindset – where even though they now see that there are problems with immigration and blacks and Mexicans, they continue on down with those beliefs and attitudes.

    Their strategy for this conflict, is to lay down. Just as on the street or the schoolyard, a lot of people take that strategy to avoid some pain in the immediate term. These liberals figure that well yeah things are bad, but if we fight back, that will just make it worse, and so let us just keep our heads, submit even, and get along the best we can.

    That strategy of not fighting is part of r-selection mating and the associated behaviors. Anyone interested can quickly research it. It is a term from animal behavior and specifically refers to mating habits, but it is a wider behavior pattern. And in r-selected it is a mating pattern and lifeway based on conditions of abundance, such as a group of rabbits on an endless field of clover.

    But then to get back to those liberals and their “position” – they then have to justify it with bullshit which is modern Liberalism.

    Though this post could be clearer, i don’t have the time for that, and i want to include it with some of my previous thoughts and comments, for example on the shitlib face. I have suggested that i am sympathetic to them, and this is a part of that. I know plenty of liberals and they are just trying to get along. They are not dumb.

    If they hear me make some Hitler jokes, that sounds bad because who wants another war and who wants that?

  16. Regarding Trump and Rosie and that. Isn’t that a good case of “the medium is the message”?

    The idea behind that phrase is not necessarily simple. What does it really mean, beyond its original phrase. Why is it so appealing? Does it apply here?

    It absolutely does, because the medium was television but more than that the form of political and celebrity entertainment – so what else could the message be, but that sort of theater?

    No one is stupid enough to think that Donald was getting his kicks like some frustrated manospherian who takes out his anger on some fat bitch at the store. Did i tell you about the time … ? Actually though the problem is how hard it is to put down those fat bitches, to put them in their place, because of, like, the cultural milieu. And then of course once you are confident enough do so, it seems petty.

    We are all playing along in that theatre. It doesn’t matter that it was staged, because the medium was the message, and the message was that Don Trump was telling that fat bitch with the whale-sized self-regard, to shut the fuck up.

  17. what exactly are ‘nested comments’ and ‘nested replies’; i just Googled those questions and the first few links in the Google queue were sorta cryptic and confusing, so could someone just lay it out short and sweet?

    btw, someone from wp contacted me via my WP email about getting paid to do some product evaluations and surveying. Anybody else encounter that recently?

  18. Vladimir, good to see you again!
    Elk, it went into mod for some reason. It’s up now.
    Nickrit, it’s being able to reply directly under an earlier comment.

  19. Oh, I see your comment to me that didn’t show up on PA’s blog showed up in my WP profile message book —— so, that must be what ‘nested’ comments are…… to reply to your question: i don’t quite get the point you’re making; i don’t think anyone thought they were naive and not able to have a more clandestine agenda; my point was that he has a long history of feigning sincerity and couching empire concerns into seemingly civic concerns…..also; my point is that ‘the people’ aren’t necessarily naive dupes;it’s more that they suffer from media overload and, since they don’t have any practical reason to be vigilant, absentmindedly fall prety to the hype on occasion and momentarily take seriously some of this nonesense and appraise it politically and from a ethical standpoint; it’s easy to make such a blunder in this hyper-mediated age.

  20. Krugman is a vile and corrupt shill for the elites, and this piece does nothing to dissuade me otherwise. In fact, he all but says he’s a shill for the elites, though I’m betting he doesn’t realize he says it. Otherwise, while he makes some obvious and accurate points (whites are angry!), in the end his point is essentially “racist whites need to be crushed.”

    I’m not going to bother reading any of the comments because Times readers.

  21. Ok, I know what nested comments are, but I just tried “reply” to Nikcrit and it disappeared.

    Oh, I see Suburban_elk said the same. I don’t think it’s working!

  22. You and Elk’s nested comment went to mod for some reason. I only have spam do that otherwise. I’ll take a look at the settings later tonight.

  23. PA, you got any response go my Bertolf vids? This Midwestern rube is really charmed by his mimble, detailed playing, whether euro pop ( Martha my dear) or Americana rootst stuff( Taylor’s ‘me & my guitar”)

  24. Hey Nikcrit, I gave him a listen. Not bad. I liked “Martha My Dear” … sounds Beatlesque – something McCartney would have done vocals on. I have respect for YouTube amateurs because I appreciate the craft of playing the guitar, myself being a self-taught six-string player.

  25. “Krugman is a vile and corrupt shill for the elites, and this piece does nothing to dissuade me otherwise.”

    I agree with Peterike’s response to that piece. Slithering reptiles will slither. Vox Day gave him a generous hearing today, while still pointing out that the elephant in the room, immigration, was not mentioned in the article.

    Krugman uses the word “ugly” several times in that article. He calls a drowning man’s grasping for floating pieces of wood “ugly.” I am reminded of my recent post “Disgust” (which I originally tiled “ugliness”). I was, in fact, doing a post in response to Krugman’s piece in my mind earlier today after you forwarded the link, but was too busy to write it. Too tired now alas. But there is a lot to respond to in that piece. Not to the reptile’s dialectic (such that it is) itself, but to the attitudes behind his writing.

  26. @peterike, et.al,

    I don’t like Krugman either for his pro-minionization labor policies, among other things. He truly is a ‘shill.’
    I nonetheless thought it was sort of odd to see both that content and reasoning in nytimes.com; yeah, they were moralizing away but they were also admitting that a lot fo cathedral conventions are deployed solely to quell white middle-and-lower-middle-class anger.
    They usually don’t admit as much that openly.

    Maybe Trump and other reactionary forces to p.c. sanctimony is that higher level of candor among the races that i often call for in our discussions. But i do think you guys are making a mistake in so wholeheartedly backing Trump; he’s done with your globalist enemies on many policy counts.

  27. You the Vladimir from 2Blowhards? You and PA and Slumlord (and others) were some of the sharpest, most erudite and challenging commenters there.

  28. Vladimir and PatrickH, good times over at CH six years ago. 2009 was a watershed year that birthed a self-aware Alt-Right. The Chateau was close to the epicenter of that event. For my part, this was starting several years later, at Two Blowhards.

    On a lighter note, I enjoyed your (Patrick’s) verbal duels with Tupac Chopra over the favors of the fair Clio.

  29. …consider these three things: (1) love, (2) sex, and (3) freedom. Pick two. As a single man, you can have sex and freedom, but love will be elusive. As a successfully married man, you can have love and sex, but your freedom is curtailed.

    Right. Well, I was so blue pill when I was young enough to get any decent pussy I threw in the towel because it was pointless. I gave up a LONG time ago, and the Japs make some pretty good TPE toys now that are way beyond

    [I deleted the embedded images and product descriptions. -PA]

    I’ve been evaluating the cost-benefit of trying to learn game after a decade and a half of celibacy, and I feel I don’t see the point, because it can’t even give me what I want. I’m really angry because the whole motivation I had to work so hard to make something of myself was a dream of a loving family, but that dream was a lie and it’s been taken away. I wanted love so badly, and I “respected” women instead of fucked them, and now I have nothing to live for. Except for my freedom to fight, to not have a family that can be held against me when it’s time for the fun to start. But for my bitterness and fury, my freedom is all I have.

    So if I can pick two, how do I get love and freedom? Cuz every action, including feminism, has a reaction, and technology is about change the market for vaginas as the internal combustion engine did for horses. Wet holes ain’t all that. All I need is love, bro.

  30. So if I can pick two, how do I get love and freedom?

    Ha, i also noticed that, that in the original post that option was not provided for.

    Though i agree that it is not a possibility. Love ties a man down.

    I was thinking just recently about the nature of loneliness or whatever it is that lonely men are suffering from.

    There is only two people who can love you. The first is – OF COURSE – mother. And the second is Big Dog in the Sky. But those are two very different loves.

    The first is what a MAN has to forget about. In America, the feminized men of this time and place – were not separated from their moms. I have written many times about how there was no ritual for them, that told them, in no uncertain terms, you are a man – or else, nothing.

    A lot of guys – men – do not require this missing ritual, and they make it. But what also happens, is that the craving of mother-love gets transferred to the wife, and this has lead to the abundant dysfunction of marital relations. Because the woman does not respect a need for mother-love from her mate.

    These are some basic dynamics for growth, for the sexual dimorphic pink chimpanzee. But if these dynamics are not maintained by culture, and not required by the natural environment, what happens is that boys do not want to leave home, because it is cold outside.

    The whole sex doll thing – to hell with that. Celibacy requires character – it means no masturbating, of course. Prostitutes are not a viable solution because sex with a plastic tube around the penis does not count as sex. How anyone can equate insertion of the penis into a plastic tube and THEN into the vagina with sex. Not all prostitutes require a condom of course, and if a guy is willing to run the risk of herpes or whatever.

  31. and I “respected” women instead of fucked them, and now I have nothing to live for

    Non sequitur. It does not follow that because those women were not fucked that life is not worth living.

    Just about everyone regrets the women they did not make congress with. I got ten or twenty episodes in my head that are, uh, unfulfilling. It is the same old story. Missed cues, not knowing the nature of the game.

    The nature of the game is that sex is some violence – and that is part of the fun. The girls want you to be a man and bend them over, but a lot of guys are not able to do that because mom.

    It is not worth despairing, but on the other it happens. The alcohol abuse in this town in prodigious. Guys who do not have checks on their habits, in the form of family or whatever else, and who are predisposed to alcohol, have to really be careful (to say the least). Or they can drink themselves into a stupor, and worse. Take it or leave it.

  32. “Just about everyone regrets the women they did not make congress with. “

    Not in the least, my own dissertation on the subject of Regret in the original post.

  33. The nature of Regret is tricky subtle and complex.

    It is a feeling, and it is a longing, for more and better.

    We only get one life, one youth, but at the same time, regret makes us want to have done better – and so to do better somehow, if not in the rest of our lives, then for others who matter.

    So regret can be considered a means by which we improve. It is painful because we often do not have the time to improve in our own lives. And now that we are isolated, that we do not exist in some meaningful collective, how does that regret serve but to drive a man to despair?

    Regret is a motivating factor for a lot of creative activity, especially writing and storytelling. The looking back, to how things were and were not, how they might have been, and what might be. It sounds prosaic when it is laid out there without a soundtrack and staged lighting.

    I am filled with regret
    and sad
    all the time

    Poor me
    have pity

    I take my spirit and i smash the mirrors, and the whole world was there for me to see – Hendrix

    That quote is not about regret, but more about self-doubt, but it seems to fit.

  34. The alcohol abuse in this town in prodigious. Guys who do not have checks on their habits, in the form of family or whatever else, and who are predisposed to alcohol, have to really be careful (to say the least). Or they can drink themselves into a stupor, and worse. Take it or leave it.

    Yeah, that’s something I think a lot of people don’t understand about life here in the Upper Midwest; there’s a sort-of inclination here to self-isolate, though i wouldn’t say Rustbelt denizens here are entirely unaware of the tendency, let alone do it subconsciously. I’d say that’s even more true up there in the Twin Cities than my Brewtown-to-Chi nexus; down here, Chicago sort-of mediates any and all regional tendencies and provides enough big-town distractions from keeping you going off the deep end. Twin Cities is different in that it’s a very big modern town with educatedly hip population demos, relatively good cost-of-living indexes, too. Still, it’s relative isolation allows for that rural vibe within the people too; I mean, what’s the closest other ‘big’ city to the Twin Cities, Fargo? lolzz?

  35. “…..technology is about change the market for vaginas as the internal combustion engine did for horses.”

    The above quote, i hereby contend, is one bit of evident proof that the Europeon tendency toward mimeosis, specifically its quest to bridge the abyss between flesh and matter, is ultimately an empty enterprise —— and one of the biggest reasons that European primitivism exists, in the sense of it being a gateway to a fascination with more primitive ‘others.’ (e.g., Africans and Hispanics,for the most part)

  36. Alright,
    Tanks for your input gentlemen. Need to drink less before posting. Trying to be concise because I have too much bitching to expect you guys to read causes non-sequitirs.

    Elk you are right that I was leading up to the point that you can’t have love and freedom – at least not now anyway.

    PA:[I deleted the embedded images and product descriptions. -PA] OK boss. It’s your house to decide what’s appropriate. And it’s not that I don’t understand. But..

    But women aren’t ashamed of all the power technology has given them over us in myriad ways. We’re not going back to a time before birth control. Why should I be ashamed to even the score?

    They are sure as hell not ashamed to seize their own power and prestige without waiting for men to hand it to them. What gives them the right to rule me with god-power over my biological needs that I should be ashamed to circumvent their tyranny?

    Even if Donald Trump and Marine Le Pen and their likes stop all immigration into Whtie countries, but feminism goes on, we STILL LOSE and get swallowed up. Feminism is a BIGGER issue to our survival than immigration because as long as we can have families and children we can still win, but if we die we die. They’ve taken away our wives and mothers and left us with tyrants. How are we supposed to fight hypergamy and feminism when they have a Level 99 weapon between their legs we have no defense against, unless we circumvent it?

    Suburban_Elk: The whole sex doll thing – to hell with that. Celibacy requires character – it means no masturbating, of course. Never! Why? Why should I? Why should I suffer needlessly because I was deceived about the nature of women? Why should I force myself to be dependent on those who see me as disposable livestock to validate my humanity? There’s so little left for me to enjoy, what else is there?

    I didn’t do anything to deserve this. I tried to be a good person.

    But what also happens, is that the craving of mother-love gets transferred to the wife, and this has lead to the abundant dysfunction of marital relations. Because the woman does not respect a need for mother-love from her mate.
    I’ve heard this a lot elsewhere and it’s correct in a way, but I have a theory that this is a misunderstanding.

    I don’t think we expect women to love us as our mothers. I think we were tricked by feminist equalitarian lies that told us women were the same as us, so we believed women could feel for us the same nurturing, selfless love that we feel for them. The same need to give of themselves to protect us, to be needed. The misunderstanding comes from the nature of Man’s love for women, which is “parallel” to a parent’s love for a child.

    Despite my heavy MGTOW influence, a woman can love a man. But it’s impossible for her to love as we do; her love is “parallel” to a child’s love for a parent. To love is to find joy in giving of yourself for the benefit of another, and a woman’s proper natural love for her husband is one not of nurturing and protection, but of subservience and loyalty.

    I believe there is a simple test to see if one’s wife loves him or not. If when given a command, she feels joyful and happy to serve her man, and has a little giddiness, then that is how nature designed a woman’s love.

    And I think that almost no men today are loved by their wives, who have been taught that “love” is a one-sided deal where men exist only to serve them.

  39. Nikcrit, I think your understanding of the Twin Cities is flawed. Even though I live a mile from the IDS, I don’t have that hip urban vibe. Outside of Minneapolis proper, almost no one does. Most of the people here came from small towns. Yeah, Minneapolis has a vibe that St Paul lacks. But Minneapolis is less than 400,000 out of more than 4 million.
