The optics of noticing

There is a lot of bad female behavior. It gets worse as they get older, but it starts very young indeed, typically around four years below fertile age, with a great deal of variance, much more variance than occurs in males.

People complain that when I notice sexual misbehavior in very young girls, that this is “bad optics”.

I say that there is severe and widespread female misconduct getting right in our faces, that we need to stop them, and that we need start stopping them very young.

People then claim I advocate raping little girls, and that this is “bad optics”.

I say that female consent is always unclear and ambiguous, and is usually foolish and given to very bad men with very bad consequences, and that therefore such decisions need to be made by the parent or guardian.

People then claim that I say that I should be allowed to have sex with other men’s children and they should not be allowed to stop me, even though that is exactly the opposite of what I am saying.

These claims make no logical or factual sense. But equally obviously, they make emotional sense if you are badly cucked.

Suppose someone genuinely fails to see women behaving badly. Then, if he disagrees with me, the natural response is

“No you are wrong, women are not behaving badly, they don’t need to be controlled”

But instead I hear

“horrible men need to be controlled and you are a horrible man, you rape other men’s daughters and seduce other men’s wives”

Which makes emotional sense if those making the accusation see what I see, but are frightened, weak, and impotent. It only makes emotional sense if one sees bad behavior, and, unable to address the bad behavior directly (because that would be domestic violence, hostile work environment, sexual harassment, mansplaining, and rape) displaces one’s rage. If one does not see what I see, if one does not see a great deal of very bad behavior, it makes neither logical nor emotional sense to accuse me of these absurd views. For someone to make these angry hostile denunciations is displacement of anger and pain, thus only makes emotional sense if female misbehavior is causing him anger and pain, thus only makes emotional sense if he sees what I see.

Blaming men for female misconduct is fear, weakness and white knighting. People say that speaking the truth about women is “bad optics”, but weakness is the worst optics. We are the strong horse.

I am indeed saying that women, starting at a horrifyingly young age, like sex, like rape, and rather like brutal rape. To conclude from this that I am arguing in favor of brutal rape, one has to attribute to me the white knight position that women should get what they want. But that is an implausible position to attribute to someone who is arguing that women want very bad things, wicked, foolish, and self destructive things, and who frequently says in the plainest possible words that women should not be allowed to get what they want. Chastity and monogamy are a plot by men against women and needs to be imposed on women with a stick. Monogamy and chastity were first invented when one band of ape men wiped out the ape men of another band, killed their mothers, killed their children, and divided up the women among themselves.

When I talk about nine year old girls finding an older male to fuck them, I say “but she does not want to fuck someone like you – she is going to fuck a heavily tattooed forty year old motorcycle gang leader and drug dealer.” When a heavily tattooed drug dealer is my example of youthful female hypergamy in action it is unreasonable to attribute to me the argument “This is what little girls want, and therefore giving it to them should be fine.” What I say is that this is indeed what little girls want, and therefore they need to be whacked with a stick and in some cases shotgun married. We need to deal with this problem with domestic discipline and the threat of early shotgun marriage, not by doubling down on prohibitions against men, prohibitions that are only effective against respectable men, and thus wind up reinforcing the little girl’s feeling that bad men are higher status.

Attributing to me outrageous and absurd positions only makes emotional sense as emotional displacement, and emotional displacement only makes sense if a problem is hurting one badly, and one is powerless and afraid to do anything about it.

Blaming men for the behavior of women is weakness and fear, and smells to everyone like weakness and fear. When people see the strong horse and the weak horse, naturally they will prefer the strong horse.

There is an enormous epidemic of extremely bad female behavior right in front of your face. That this epidemic starts at a very early age is just a small part of what people are refusing to see, and this small part is no different from the rest of it. Mostly what we see is bad female behavior in college and in the workplace, and it is in the workplace that most of the economic damage from female sexual misconduct happens.

Consider what happens at work. The boss is talking and a woman interrupts him and talks over him, in a supposedly helpful, respectful, friendly, and supportive manner. When a woman interrupts a man she always sounds friendly, helpful, and supportive at first, because women always play one man against another man, are always soliciting white knights.

The boss is trying to say X, but she is not letting him say X, and is insisting that he is actually saying Y. Y is usually something stupid, disruptive, and damaging to the business and the cohesion of the team, and even if it is something perfectly reasonable, it is not what the boss was attempting to say.

This is a shit test. If he raises his voice and insists on X and ignores this Y disruption, he is being mean to this supposedly sweet innocent girl who has supposedly done nothing wrong, was sweetly, politely, and supportively interrupting him and speaking over him.

Quite likely the boss fails the shit test, by allowing the woman who interrupted him and talked over him to win, the conversation proceeds to be about Y, and the boss never gets a chance to talk about X. In which case the boss becomes invisible to her, and if subsequently he forces himself on her attention, which being her boss he probably needs to do from time to time, she gets a creepy feeling as though something slimy and disgusting was trying to insert its semen into her, as though he physically forced himself on her, and she fought him off, and he slunk away ashamed. And, chances are, she will remember it as happening something like that, because that is what it is going to feel like. Women just don’t like having betas around, just as they don’t like having rats and slugs around. The distinction between a contemptible beta forcing himself on her attention, and a contemptible beta forcing himself on her body will not remain clear in her mind. Likely she will complain about him metaphorically forcing himself to her colleagues at the time, and years after the events, will genuinely remember him as literally forcing himself on her physically.

Now suppose instead the boss bulls his way through, and insists on talking about X, ignoring her gentle steering towards Y? Well, chances are that at first the interruptions become considerably less helpful, less respectful, less friendly and less supportive, more openly hostile and disruptive. But maybe, indeed very likely, her stiffening resistance will suddenly collapse, and she will accept the boss talking about X. In which case he has passed the shit test, and when he wins and when she capitulates to his verbal domination you will see her emit some subtle or not so subtle body language that signals that if he were to try some physical domination on her for size, maybe that might well go down similarly. Which was, of course the whole point of the exercise, the whole point of disrupting the bosses talk and attempting to silence him. The dance is pursuit and predation, conquest and surrender. To reproduce successfully, men and women have to form stable families, which means that men have to conquer, and women have to surrender. She is provoking him to aggress against her, so that he can conquer her. She never actually cared one way or the other whether the boss talked about X or Y.

Now you might suppose you can stay out of trouble by always capitulating, by losing to every shit test, by white knighting. Accepting defeat, accepting the higher status of your adversary, works in a conflict with a fellow male. It fails catastrophically in a conflict with a woman. Male conflicts are resolved by establishing hierarchy. Female conflicts ae resolve by eliminating the losers. If you submit to male dominance, he would like to keep you around. If you submit to female dominance, she will casually destroy you. Men reproduce most successfully by ruling, females reproduce most successfully by being ruled, thus are maladapted to rule. White knighting fails.

To be more precise, white knighting fails as a strategy for men with women. It works as a cover for defecting on your fellow males. If one tells a woman one is supporting and protecting her, she will despise one. If one tells a man one is supporting and protecting his wife and his daughters, it will likely persuade him to refrain from killing one.

White knighting works as a sneaky fucker strategy for high status males. If a male is acting in a role that makes him higher status than you, as for example a preacher, he is in a good position to fuck your women. If, in that high status role, he preaches that women are higher status than himself, that is going to impair his chances. But if, in that role, he preaches that your women are pure and chaste (and therefore your women would never have sex with him)) and also preaches that women are higher status than you, that is going to improve his chances. “Domestic violence” laws are a white knight strategy targeting men who are low status in the male hierarchy but high status in female perception, because violent. People in authority are pissed that women like are criminals and men with no income, and so push “domestic violence””in an effort to undermine the authority of those men over their women, with the unfortunate effect of undermining the authority of all men over all women. The correct way to reduce the propensity of women to hang out with stone broke criminals and ignore the guy with the corner office in the skyscraper is to support male authority over females, but only for males in good standing, as the Mormon Church does. Of course, that has the effect that people in authority don’t get to fuck the women of men in good standing, which is why this strategy is so frequently unpopular with men in authority.

Which is how we got into this mess. King George the fourth slept with the wives of aristocrats. His own wife slept around. He tried to divorce her, revealing himself as powerless and cuckolded. The power of Kings went away, and anglosphere fertility has been falling ever since, with a temporary recovery between first wave and second wave feminism. The elite go after each other’s women, lose social cohesion, and social disorder ensues.

Recollect my story about the first men inventing chastity and monogamy: The leader of the first men assigns one woman to each of his followers who is any use, and a dozen to himself. Noticing that some of that dozen are apt to be frisky, he issues a commandment that marriage is eternal. If a woman has sex with a man, she may only have sex with that one man all her days. Further, if a woman does have sex with another man, it is absolutely fine for her husband to kill her and/or that man, and the rest of the tribe should support him in that endeavor.

Time passes, and the leader of the first men is getting a bit frail. A new leader is rising, and this new leader has as yet only one woman. As his power an status rises, he notices other men’s women giving him the eye. The new leader announces that women are chaste and virtuous, and it is important to protect them. That works for him in the short run, but it is going to be bad for all the other men in the tribe.

I call them the first men, because they were smart enough to have laws and commandments, and likely smart enough to attribute those commandments to God, but looked like upright apes. It seems likely that they looked like upright apes, because women find male apes sexually attractive, while men do not find female apes sexually attractive, which indicates that in our evolutionary history, men have been exercising sexual choice, but women in the lines that we are descended from did not get to exercise sexual choice since the days we looked like apes. Which indicates that populations that allow female sexual choice die out, and explains the female propensity to make very bad sexual choices.

It is unlikely that males would have been able to coordinate well enough to prevent female sexual choice till smart enough to have laws and commandments (which is smarter than some present day peoples) so this implies a population with human intelligence and human social order but apelike appearance.

You cannot suppress female sexual choice except you have laws and commandments that prevent men from defecting on other men, from which I conclude that we are descended from a very long line of populations that had the law:

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s.

in effect, that though entire peoples kept falling away from such laws, peoples that fall away from those laws disappear from history.

That females are severely maladapted to an environment of female sexual choice, while men can accurately assess female fertility at thirty paces in seven seconds tells me that we are descended from peoples that were pretty relaxed about male choice, while forcefully suppressing female choice, people who only restricted males from impinging on the other male’s property rights in female sexuality, and were otherwise fine with it being open season for male predation. So if we look back in history to the family law of a people that did survive, this is what we should see. Open go for male predation, except that other men’s wives and fiancees are very much off limits, death penalty for women who sleep with one man, then cheerfully sleep with another man while the first man still lives.

And this is in fact what we do see. The biblical penalty for rape or seduction of an unbetrothed virgin was … shotgun marriage. The biblical penalty for rape or seduction of a betrothed woman, was death. Which implies that if someone raped an unbetrothed woman, kept her around, fed her, looked after her, and she nonetheless sneaked off when he was not looking, the penalty was death, both for her and for whichever man she sneaked off to.

So who killed the offenders? The state, the temple, or the man whose property rights in women’s sexual and reproductive capabilities were violated?

At the time of Jesus, it was the temple, and Jesus famously abrogated this. But the rabbis of the time were engaged in a holiness spiral, which holiness spiral Jesus often vehemently denounced, which holiness spiral led them into suicidal war with the Romans, literally suicidal as they wound up murdering each other and killing themselves, as holiness spirals so frequently end, so we cannot take temple practice at the time of Jesus as indicative of the will of Gnon, or the practice of earlier times. Jesus said no, and they perished. Both of these are good indicators that you are not following the will of Gnon.

What we can take as indicative of the family law of earlier times of those peoples who survived is the wisdom books of earlier times, in particular the Book of Proverbs. Wisdom books were issued by governments to advise their subjects about the private and quasi private incentives for good behavior that were in effect – hence “the wisdom of Solomon”. And according to the section of the Book of Proverbs that claims to have been issued by the court of King Solomon, the incentive for not sleeping with someone else’s women was not that the government would kill you, nor that the temple would kill you, but that the rightful owner of that woman’s sexual and reproductive capability might kill you, and would have every right to do so, legally and openly. So, the Wisdom of Solomon (and of subsequent Kings that repeatedly re-issued that book) is that honor killing is fine. Which is a good indicator of the will of Gnon, since that is a people that survived and of the will of God, since that is the way that Old Testament law on adultery was implemented.

The book of Proverbs has different sections, as it was re-issued by King after King, government after government. But none of the sections threaten state or temple penalties for sexual misconduct, nor do any of the sections drop the Solomonic privately administered death penalty for sexual misconduct, indicating laws on sexual conduct that gave the maximum sexual possible liberty to men, short of allowing one man to tread on another man’s toes, and the minimum possible sexual liberty to women. Since, to form families, men need to conquer, and women to be conquered, such laws are optimal for family formation and reproduction. Such also prevent conflict within the elite (King George the Fourth) and between the elite and the people, by preventing men from competing for women’s favors, by preventing women from giving such favors, thus are optimal for social cohesion. Hence peoples with such laws are apt to invade, and not themselves be invaded. Which is handy if you have high elite fertility as a result of such laws.

So, in Old Testament times, if a man abducted a woman who was not married or betrothed, he was allowed to keep her, and if she was virgin before the abduction, required to keep her, and if she ran away to some other man, he was allowed to kill her and that other man. This is consistent with observed present day behavior of men and women, which indicates descent from populations with severe restraint on female sexual choice, and weak restraint on male sexual choice – indicates that we are descended from peoples who had laws like that, and that peoples more tolerant of female sexual choice failed to reproduce or were conquered and genocided. Our biological character indicates that among the populations from which we are descended male sexual choice was only restricted to the extent necessary to prevent one man’s choice from impinging on another man’s choice, while female sexual choice was almost nonexistent, indicating that Old Testament law, as interpreted and applied by the wisdom of Solomon in the Book of Proverbs, is the will of Gnon, the will of Nature and of Nature’s God.

The Book of Proverbs goes on about sexual misconduct at considerable length. And it describes the reality that I see, not the reality that people keep gaslighting me with. In the Book of Proverbs, sexual misconduct is primarily the result of lustful women manipulating naive men in order to obtain socially disruptive sex. There are no grooming gangs in the Book of Proverbs. Women sexually manipulate men in order to obtain sex in socially disruptive and damaging ways. Men do not sexuality manipulate women. Though the dance is pursuit and predation, conquest and surrender, as if lustful men were imposing themselves on sexless angels, that is the dance not the reality. The reality is that women and girls are lustfully manipulating men and their social environment to obtain social outcomes that in some ways superficially resemble lustful men imposing themselves on sexless angels. That is what the Book of Proverbs depicts, and that is what I see in front of my nose. And yet I live in a world where everyone with astonishing confidence and enormous certainty reports a very different world, a world of men sexually harassing and raping women, a world where male sexual predators lure innocent sexless female children. When I report the world that I see and experience, which is the world depicted in the Book of Proverbs, which is the world that the famous Wisdom of Solomon depicts, some people get very angry.

I have been writing this post over a couple of days. Last night I threw a big expensive party, at which party I played the role of the big high status male, and the highest status male guest, a colleague of my girlfriend’s father, very courteously played along. This morning one of the party girls, who is fertile age but only very recently fertile age, and unfortunately very closely connected to my current girlfriend and that high status male, was still around. This morning, after this post was mostly written and the remaining guests mostly sober, I left for the beach for a swim with my girlfriend. And by coincidence, party girl just happened to decide to put on a bikini that she only recently came to need, and to take a swim shortly after I and my girlfriend left, joining us at the beach. And whenever I remained stationary and facing in a particular direction for any length of time, this young party girl, dressed in a bikini, would find some reason to hang around in that line of vision. You may recall that in my posts on testosterone and weight loss, I have frequently remarked that I have difficulty out-staring a pizza and a pitcher of Mountain Dew.

For men to cooperate effectively, as for example in genociding their less cooperative neighbors and taking their land, they have to keep their hands off each other’s women, and enforce keeping each other’s hands off each other’s women. And since women are notoriously apt to find clever ways to give sneaky fuckers a chance, particularly sneaky fuckers in authority, in order to enforce keeping each other’s hands off each other’s women, they have to enforce each other’s authority over each other’s women. That is why when a group of males moves in on a group of women to attempt a pickup, they first have to agree in advance which of them is going to score which girl so that the girls cannot play them off against each other.

Conversely, the first thing a sneaky fucker in authority or in a position of status is going to do is undermine other men’s authority over their women, even though this strategy is apt to backfire on himself, as it backfired on King George the Fourth.

Romance is an escape hatch out of the tenth commandment. Supposedly it is OK to fuck other men’s women if that is what they want. Tingles supposedly make sex holy, and a woman should supposedly always get whatever man gives her tingles.  So a woman can have sex with every man who gives her tingles, which is apt to be a disturbingly large number of men, and stop having sex with any man who stops giving her tingles, who is apt to be the father of her children.

Well I have bad news: Your women, including your daughters starting at a startlingly early age, always want to fuck some strange man because there is always some man higher status than you, so this escape hatch out of the tenth commandment is always going to burn you. Therefore any group of men that allows this escape hatch out of the tenth commandment is always going to perish in the long run. And any time someone claiming high status tells you that your women are not going to be tempted to fuck some high status male, provided you are sufficiently holy, or sufficiently progressive, or sufficiently manly, sufficiently patriarchal, or sufficiently antisexist, or sufficiently loving, is more interested in sneak fucking your wife than in the survival of the group to which he belongs.

These are the real optics: Nobody likes the weak horse, white knighting women and girls as sexless angels looks weak, and sneaky fuckers need killing even if, like William Duke of Acquitaine, they are far from weak.

    Not coveting means also not sticking our nose into how another man mismanages his property (including his wives) unless it harms our property. In which latter case a law should be enacted that deals with the problem in a way that does not dilute patriarchy. If a woman and her father allow her to fuck and thus become married to a man who is unnecessarily abusive, that’s a lesson for other fathers to look out for their daughters’ sexual choices. Matthew 19 clearly states that marriage is bond of the flesh that can’t be undone. If a father would take revenge on the husband of his daughter, he too should be put to death. No exceptions.

    However this K strategy patriarchy is not optimal for nature. It’s too highly ordered and doesn’t allow maximization of entropy (i.e. distribution of uncertainty). The soup of genetic mixing is not maximized. This is why nature will always be destroying any large nation or State which attempts patriarchy. As you wrote, some males will find a way to leverage the collective to defect by abusing their authority. Our group needs to small and decentralized enough that it can route around such defection.

    So what size grouping should we attempt and how do we defend ourselves against the States and Facebook? C.f. my comments in the prior blog. Any U.S. civil war is a waste of our effort because the group is too large.

    Technology and the march away from fungible capital towards a knowledge age, is making land and terroritory less valuable. Ditto physical control over women. We need now only their eggs.

      “Forms of Action” were today’s remote procedure calls implemented on beeswax covered slates.

        Jim you correctly identified female hypergamy as a problem in our modern nation-states, but you haven’t realized yet that it was only never a problem when technology was not sufficient for it to be used against all of us who want to practice patriarchy on a smaller scale.

        Patriarchy was never sustainable on a large scale. The West rose to defeat the patriarchy of the East because manorialism defeated patriarchy and fostered greater network effects (patriarchy becomes very stagnant and regressive if not under competitive forces):

        https://steemit.com/philosophy/@anonymint/geographical-cultural-ethos-science-is-dead-part-2

        The remnants of patriarchy in the Victorian era were analogous to the remnants of delusions of patriarchy in Idaho and Australia.

      Maximizing mixing of genetic soup is not the reason higher level orders in societal structures decay. Seems a convoluted way to apply the concept of entropy.

      Entropy acts on vertically selected values and social technology that were inherited from a founding population. Without active maintenance they degenerate into people doing whatever they feel like.

      Entropy is behind dysgenics.

      Civilizations solve problems by increasing complexity. This complexity has maintenance costs (caused by entropy). Over time the maintenance costs become unmanageable (if there is not an active mechanisms killing all excess complexity) and, like a bloated code base, require unfeasibly large amounts of resources to maintain.

        > Maximizing mixing of genetic soup is not the reason higher level orders in societal structures decay.

        C.f. my comment reply to Aidan MacLear down the page. The mixing formerly occurred in a highly decentralized, highly competitive environment of small Dunbar number sized tribes. Nation-states are highly ordered defection paradigms and thus they must create massive amount of disorder. That disorder manifests a the defeat of K strategy and promotion of R strategy reproduction.

        > Entropy is behind dysgenics.

        Only when it’s correcting (routing around) an unnatural order is trying to prevent nature from annealing genetic balance via maximum uncertainty (aka maximum entropy), e.g. the Ashkenazi Jews have a very high level of genetic defects because they inbred apparently more exclusively for higher IQ and rapidly increased that one genetic trait at the expensive of genetics for health:

        You’re describing the defection paradigm of the nation-state, which is an attempt at large-scale order that of course fails as it must. Jim pointed out in a recent blog (he was writing about Putin) that order exists to foster greater disorder (entropy is disorder).

        • Dignitas says:

          Highly ordered systems can be maintained if there are active mechanisms that maintain the order (export entropy). The human body is one such system.

          “Female hypergamy adapted when male patriarchy was highly decentralized in small tribes. Her fantasy to be invaded by the strongest tribe fostered both the trend to maximum disorder (i.e. entropy) and the fitness of the human species through genetic competition.”

          Active system is that degenerate tribes are killed. Giving the vertically selected cultures I eluded to and the eugenics you alluded to.

          “Problem is that technology has shrunk the world and provided greater economies-of-scale for collective power. Thus any patriarchy on such scale egregiously exceeding the Dunbar number is doomed for the reason Jim pointed out in the blog; that the power of technology can be employed when capturing the power vacuum of collectives. A power vacuum means the most ruthless defectors defeat those who want to maintain order.”

          By capturing the power vacuum of collectives I assume you mean using media to shape public opinion? Does ‘A power vacuum’ always mean ‘the most ruthless defectors defeat those who want to maintain order.’ Why is the optimal strategy for capturing any power vacuum unconditional defecting?

          “Nature simply won’t tolerate such a large-scale order as the sustainable nation-state patriarchy, because it’s counter trend to the expansion of entropy that is required for us to even be able to perceive past, present, and future. Defection and R strategy is the way nature responds to such large-scale order.”

          Nature tolerated single celled organisms, then multi-celled …
          I expect if humans don’t go extinct first, civilizations will evolve into the higher level concept using humans like the body uses cells. It will use genetic engineering and therapy to mold them into the parts it needs. R strategy is because of technologically enabled surplus.

          “Nature simply won’t tolerate such a large-scale order as the sustainable nation-state patriarchy, because it’s counter trend to the expansion of entropy that is required for us to even be able to perceive past, present, and future.”

          Nature tolerates all kinds of complex order – Will tolerate complex civilizations if they figure out ways to export entropy.

          “That disorder manifests a the defeat of K strategy and promotion of R strategy reproduction.”

          Again that is because of technologically enabled surplus.

          Entropy is behind dysgenics because there are more harmful than useful orderings of genes.

          “You’re describing the defection paradigm of the nation-state, which is an attempt at large-scale order that of course fails as it must.”

          My point about values and social technology declining in the absence of an active mechanism maintaining them (Vertical Selection) predates the nation state, although it is still observable.

          • X says:

            > Nature tolerates all kinds of complex order – Will tolerate complex civilizations if they figure out ways to export entropy.

            Agreed. The key is that they export entropy. My point is that patriarchy becomes quite stagnant if not under a myriad of competitive forces that drive maximum uncertainty and thus export entropy. We had that in a tribal existence, but that was of very low complexity technologically and socially. So the West actually employed a mix of defeating patriarchy (along with retaining some of the order of patriarchy but it was not sustainable) while increasing cooperation by destroying tribalism while the East floundered in tribal patriarchy. I wrote about this in a recent blog and I also cited 180 IQ Freeman Dyson’s point (and spanking of Dawkins) about the end of the Darwinian interlude and the rise of human technology and culture that is driving evolution much faster than species selection can. In short, species don’t evolve much genetically after they mature, they just go extinct if they can only adapt genetically.

            There are many examples of technology that the West created which exported entropy because they raised the decentralized capabilities of individual humans and smaller companies, e.g. the cotton gin, the engine, the personal computer, and the Internet.

            But AFAICT the mechanism is not as simple as concluding that random mutations are the driver of dysgenics. Maximum distribution of uncertainty (i.e. maximum entropy) drives on average the best fitness so thus not dysgenic for the species (although dysgenic for unlucky individuals).

Does ‘A power vacuum’ always mean ‘the most ruthless defectors defeat those who want to maintain order.’ Why is the optimal strategy for capturing any power vacuum unconditional defecting?

            Collectives are a defection paradigm because there’s more entropy (degrees-of-freedom) in defecting than in running with all our shoelaces tied together. Order can be expedient over the short-term as it creates some new benefit which exports disorder, but over any sufficient time frame order destroys itself.

                  Not seeing it. From 1660 to the end of the eighteenth century England was open economically, yet kept an iron hand on their women. Elite fertility was high and rising until King George the Fourth was publicly cucked, and his wife got away with it.

                  Assuming its accuracy, I think it might be a bit of a stretch to use the phrase “crisis of morality” or “massive defection”.

                  The likely reason for Jim’s implication that laws for and enforcement of patriarchy peaked around 1800 right before the bottom fell out and patriarchy collapsed, is probably because as those various accounts I skimmed point that the hysteria over what people were really doing behind the curtain and under the bed sheets was not that much in line with the official charade of law and enforcement. The USA is sort of in this predicament now where we still claim to be a moral nation yet we have no morals. And the bottom is falling out right about now.

                  On the other, would this (“this” being, presumably, private securitymen on the lookout for unaccompanied women) not be the natural result of a radically disempowered state?

                  Agreed that is my point in my numerous comments on this blog. Strict patriarchy is really only a reality when done by a tribe, not a State. If a State is doing surveillance then everyone is likely to suffer because that’s totalitarianism which is the antithesis of the cooperation entropy that is the raison d’etre of nation-states. For reasons of trend towards maximum entropy. And nature made sure that entropy would rule at the nation-state scale (so as to maximize cooperation by defeating myopic local politics of tribal priorities) such that both men and women are maladapted to any strict organization of group size beyond a person’s Dunbar number limit. IOW, the nation-state exists to enable humans to defect on each other in order to attain temporary advances in cooperation. This eventually collapses and must reset anew. Another civilization steps into the void while the other is collapsing.

                  Bullshit. History proves you wrong.

                  An open economy does not empower females. What empowers females is letting them out to ride the cock carousel, and letting them own stuff without their husband or father having final authority over that stuff.

                  Male power comes from the capability for violence – the connection to the economic order being slight. Female power comes from the capability to give her favors to one man, then another – the connection to the economic order being nonexistent.

                  Restrain women from riding the cock carousel – and if their fathers cannot restrain them, shotgun marry them regardless of age to a husband who can restrain them – and female power vanishes.

                  Cite history. Even a read about patriarchy under Rome exemplifies that females had more freedom and rights than they did in the tribal, strict patriarchy backwaters outside of Rome.

                  You’re viewing civilization only through the lens of warfare and not also economics. Rome prospered because the warfare (booty for the soldiers conquering new lands) opened up travel, road networks, and communication. This was diluting strict tribal patriarchy.

            > Nature tolerates all kinds of complex order – Will tolerate complex civilizations if they figure out ways to export entropy.

            Agreed. The key is that they export entropy. My point is that patriarchy becomes quite stagnant if not under a myriad of competitive forces that drive maximum uncertainty and thus export entropy. We had that in a tribal existence, but that was of very low complexity technologically and socially. So the West actually employed a mix of defeating patriarchy (along with retaining some of the order of patriarchy but it was not sustainable) while increasing cooperation by destroying tribalism while the East floundered in tribal patriarchy. I wrote about this in a recent blog and I also cited 180 IQ Freeman Dyson’s point (and spanking of Dawkins) about the end of the Darwinian interlude and the rise of human technology and culture that is driving evolution much faster than species selection can. In short, species don’t evolve much genetically after they mature, they just go extinct if they can only adapt genetically.

            There are many examples of technology that the West created which exported entropy because they raised the decentralized capabilities of individual humans and smaller companies, e.g. the cotton gin, the engine, the personal computer, and the Internet.

            Patriarchy on a large scale though is constantly under attack by the defection paradigm of the power vacuum of collectives. The technology which is created that exports entropy also destroys the large-scale patriarchy that created it.

              England from 1660 to about 1800 was as patriarchal as any man could wish. That is the England that gave us science, technology, corporate capitalism, industrialization, and world empire. Australia from about 1790 to about 1810 was so patriarchal that it would startle the Taliban.

              The British Empire from around 1740 to around 1840 was the largest and most complex high cooperation society ever, and for most of that period, was impressively patriarchal.

              The collapse of social technology towards a dark age is happening in spite of industrial technological advance, not because of it.

              William the Conqueror faced the the same problem with out of control judges as Trump and Turnbull. William the Conqueror and Turnbull applied the same social technology, but the solution worked much better for Turnbull because he had the Remote Procedure Calls over the Internet, instead of slates coated with beeswax.

              Just about every social technology that we have lost or abandoned or which has collapsed would have worked one hell of a lot better with Remote Procedure Calls, RFID chips and DNA profiles.

              After the restoration, when a security guy sees an unaccompanied women, and something seems not right, he will say “May I help you Madam?”, and if he does not like her response, will scan her, and if she is a runaway wife or daughter, send her back to her father or husband – if necessary on leash.

                This advance was significantly due to the plague creating a labor shortage, manorialism and the Hajnal line defeating strict patriarchy which allowed the communication and cooperation network effects to drive trade, travel, economic growth, and investment in technology. Delayed marriage West of the Hajnal line (which is Western Europe) was because of the poverty as both men and women had to work. So females became empowered by contributing the economy analogous as what further empowered females in the West after working in the war factories in WW2.

                As the book Love, Lust, and License in Early Modern England: Illicit Sex and Nobility points out, there was a crisis of morality in England from at least 1580 forward. The State-enforced patriarchy was undergoing massive defection behind the curtains and under the bed sheets. Patriarchy isn’t reality at the State-level of scale. And certainly not sustainable. I already explained how the economic and communication advances driven by prosperous States undermines their own patriarchal culture, then they peak and collapse. Then another State rises to dominance to repeat the cycle. Next up is Asia lead by China. They too are the in process of losing their patriarchy. Just observe Chinese women in Shanghai. Or Japan and Korea entirely.

                Your simplistic conceptualizations are pure fantasy. Social complexity is far more entropic than you’re modeling in your preferred confirmation bias narrative.

                The draconian and totalitarian technological measures you’re advocating for modern enforcement of patriarchy will only thrust us further down into a Dark Age of massive authoritarian defection where the Deep State elite further subjugate all of us males perhaps even to the point of genocide.

                  You can sustain a SEMI patriarchy in the modern world by marrying off women young and allowing their husbands to beat them. About this Jim is right.

                  The women’s husbands can force them to f*** them and force them to paternity test. But white people will never really be willing to go full Taliban and thus you can’t really prevent women sneaking off if their husbands can’t scare them enough. The adultery question is where Jim is wrong… in fact I imagine arranged marriage no divorce societies tend to have a pretty high rate of adultery since there is not any pretense that marriage is anything other then a coercive business arrangement.

                  The prime objective is preventing unowned women and large masses of sexless men (modern phenomenons which are disruptive). But beyond giving discipline rights if a husband can’t keep his wife from sleeping around its not a state concern. Gotta allow an outlet for high status Alpha Chads and Stacies so they are happy with the system too or else they’ll undermine it.

                  Your history is bullshit.

                  Science, technology, industrialization, corporate capitalism, and the industrial revolution does not really get going until after 1660. The black death ended in 1351, three hundred years earlier. England from 1660 to 1800 is vastly more patriarchal than the society depicted by the troubadours and in the legends of King Arthur. I would argue that 1660 to 1800 was the high point of patriarchy, the high point of scientific advance, and in some important ways one of the most open and free market societies.

                  And if you want to argue it was not the high point of patriarchy, you are going to have a hard time arguing that husbands had less authority than earlier times. The doctrine of coverture was extreme, and was enforced in an extreme manner. A wife was as much a part of her husband as his fingers, which was clearly not the case at the time of those who wrote the Arthurian tales. Similarly, we see William the Marshal’s reluctant fiancee defending her castle against William the Marshal. Obvious she was exercising authority over fighting men, which could not possibly ever happen in eighteenth century England. Therefore, Eighteenth Century England more patriarchal than the Europe of William the Marshal.

                  Geostrategically, the United States occupies the greatest territory in the world, with vast oceans to its east and its west, Canada to its north, a muppet state since at least the Civil War, and Mexico to its south, no threat for obvious reasons.

                  Economically, I will grant you that the Atlantic facilitated integration along the eastern coastline (not both coastlines — California didn’t matter until the Deep State established its defense industry there), and the Mississippi helped a great deal as well.

                  >while being the demand engine that drove the rise of Asia with the mutual access of the Pacific ocean

                  I’m skeptical of this proposition. “Demand” causing economic ascent doesn’t make much sense to me. England, initiator of the Industrial Revolution, had no “demand” — but it didn’t seem to matter. Vast swaths of the world, chiefly Africa, the southern Americas, and SEAsia, are persistently underdeveloped, and seemingly not for lack of “demand”. The Middle East is momentarily overdeveloped, not least because of its oil — this seems attributable to “demand”. I believe that, had Hitler managed to secure Stalin’s oil fields, he would have “closed the loop”, achieving self-fulfilling “demand”, i.e. autarky. The core idea is that the books must balance. If you disagree, please explain this mechanism.

                  >This fundamental advantage was leveraged into finance and technology.

                  What is your working definition of patriarchy? Does a nuclear family qualify?

                  >As the book Love, Lust, and License in Early Modern England: Illicit Sex and Nobility points out, there was a crisis of morality in England from at least 1580 forward. The State-enforced patriarchy was undergoing massive defection behind the curtains and under the bed sheets.

                  I’ve read the summary found here: https://www.history.ac.uk/reviews/review/761

                  Assuming its accuracy, I think it might be a bit of a stretch to use the phrase “crisis of morality” or “massive defection”.

                  >The draconian and totalitarian technological measures you’re advocating for modern enforcement of patriarchy will only thrust us further down into a Dark Age of massive authoritarian defection where the Deep State elite further subjugate all of us males perhaps even to the point of genocide.

                  On one hand, that’s a persuasive argument. “Who watches the watchers?”

                  On the other, would this (“this” being, presumably, private securitymen on the lookout for unaccompanied women) not be the natural result of a radically disempowered state?

                  The trick, as always, is making equality before the law real.

                  My definition is coverture, as enforced from the late seventeenth century to the very early nineteenth century, which makes the nuclear family mandatory and state enforced. Also, late eighteenth century Australia, where the nuclear family enforced by the state, if need be, by public flogging of misbehaving females.

                  Will the American military continue to decline? Will American industry continue to decline?

                  Absolutely because the USA is politically divided and it will be impossible to rectify that until the USA splits apart into regions based on differing culture and ideology. Or if there’s a bloody genocide to wipe-out one of the opposing ideologies. Right now the USA is a defection paradigm with engines ablaze. That won’t change until one side destroys the other or they segregate. So I see years or decades of tumult and decline ahead until it reaches some point of peace and renewed growth. And China will step into that superpower role and take the baton while “Rome burns”.

                  Europe is also falling into the chaotic abyss.

                  We have a 99% conviction rate in courts so that means we are a lawful and moral nation? Not. Official statistics lie, just as they do about England in 1800. Defection is hidden until the end game when it all comes out of the closet, as now and in when Caroline divorced Charles then that was the signal for everyone to come out of the closet.

                  Are these mysterious problems with no known origin or cause or solution? Why is America undergoing liquidation, and who is doing it?

                  The problem is our collective has reached the defect-defect pinnacle and so now we burn ours nation back to at least autonomous regions before we can start anew. And even achieving that minimum level of entropy to build to regenerate will be a bloody and tumultuous path. I am not hanging around for that. I have better things to do with the latter 1/3 of my life.

  9. Carlylean Restorationist says:

    I’m not really commenting here any more after the absurdities of the neo-libertarian pushbacks against common sense measures such as nationalising and (pro-us) regulating key strategic industries without prejudice as to which ones they are. This is not an open door to discussing that topic and neither do I have the slightest interest in discussing biology in a community where the pro-biologists harbour residual Creationist ideas and the rest are open Creationists. (I say that as a somewhat ‘backward’ Christian, albeit a non-conforming one, which is itself heresy in these circles lol)

    With that out of the way, the thing that this article brings into very clear focus is this: EVERYONE straw mans; EVERYONE’s disingenuous and EVERYONE exaggerates and misrepresents.

    Anyone who seriously believes that Jim has ever advocated for raping or fornicating with children is either stupid in the head or else beset with a thoroughgoing evil. Not only IS it not the case but the number of very precise and unequivocal clarifications given is not inconsiderable. There’s simply no excuse for making that claim: period.

    But where it gets interesting is Jim’s assumptions in this article. Basically what Jim’s saying is that the people calling him a pedo-rapist are some variety of beta-cuck feminist progressive. To put it rather mildly, that doesn’t seem to have been the case in the instances I’ve seen. On the contrary, the people making the ridiculous claim have tended to fall into the following broad categories:

    1. Traditionalists who believe it’s perfectly possible to woo a wife and lead a normal life in the current year if only the man is alpha enough, hard-working enough and virtuous enough AND he picks the right woman who’ll value those qualities and have virtues of her own

    2. Religious zealots who see something profane in applying ‘realism’ to such God-given parts of life as the marital home

    3. Alt.right purists who object to much of the post-NRx programme being peddled here and yearn for a more straightforward “get our guy in the White House and kill all the whatevers”

    Do you see how I immediately rush to straw men in most if not all of these cases? ‘Objectivity’ is at best a form of politeness, done with tight lips and immobile facial muscles while typing lol

    So what am I driving at? Am I saying Jim’s an idiot for misidentifying his critics in order to more easily refute them?
    No, it’s broader than that: I’m saying there’s literally nothing else he or anyone else can EVER do.

    “White Genocide In South Africa” – turns out one farmer every five days is being killed, most but not all of whom are white, partly due to the fact most but not all of the farms are owned by whites. That’s a pretty low murder rate compared to London or New York, let alone Chicago. Does that mean we should shrug our shoulders at the SA situation? Hardly. ‘We’ should be invading and restoring order. But genocide? Hardly.

    It’s human nature to exaggerate and mischaracterise the thing we’re attacking, always and everywhere, and if anyone seems to be doing something more reasonable and ‘objective’, they’re lying.

    Sorry that it’s another black pill. Back to remaining aloof. Christ once whispered to me that my commandment is simple: SURVIVE.
    I’m completely incapable of following even such a modest, reasonable commandment, but I do need to try.

            I’m not going to discuss the nationalisation question. I already gave you all you need to understand it but you’re at liberty to keep on talking about the calculation problem etc. etc. etc. – just not with me because I have no patience for it.
            For the benefit of anyone unfamiliar, it boils down to this:

            1. Ask any Austrian what their problem is with monopolies and they’ll umm and ahh and eventually tell you it’s fine if it’s a private entity but if it’s the state then they’re violating the NAP. Fine, I don’t care about the NAP.

            2. The Soviets, at least under Lenin, tried to nationalise at the level of the higher order factors of production, resulting in the Mises calculation problem. There’s no reason at all to do anything remotely like that. It’s perfectly possible to allow free enterprise whilst dictating in rather precise detail what will and will not be tolerated. The price of the materials used is of no interest to a restorationist because the aim here is not equality or redistribution of power/resources.

            3. If you *don’t* do it, you get 24/7 casinos, camgirl websites and white cider. Sure you can endlessly fix the symptoms if you want, but if you’re the boss, it’s arguably better to be a bit more foresighted.

            I’m not interested in discussing this with de facto libertarians because you’ll never ever see past your prejudices, which are certainly well enough founded in the current year when thinking about globohomo ‘governments’.

            “Who cares about why one thinks he is doing it for when the end result is the same?”

            Well then why describe a traditionalist/fascist anti-game commentator as a white knight?

            That’s the entire point: the reason it’s completely irresistible to ‘straw man’ people is that that’s just what human nature does. There’s no escaping it.

            This article is merely an interesting illustration of human nature in action. It’s not a typical topic and the actors involved aren’t typical people, which makes it all the more illuminating.

              I may be an Austrian but I am not a libertarian. I am a Christian. See Feser on Social Teaching and libertarianism. Libertarians would be fine with the worst tyranny and the most egregious injustices if NAP was followed to arrive there. I don’t care for that one bit.

              If we are de facto libertarians, then you are de facto communist.

              Because that’s what they are. It’s fine that they’re protesting cad lifestyle promoted by “gamers,” but when they start protesting bitter pills about female nature they are being white knights.

                  Look you fucking dope the problem isn’t that other people attached the label “communist” to you – the problem is that *you attached the label “socialist”* to the idea that the King can choose which businesses to charter. Then you proceeded to argue as if the only reason anyone was gainsaying you was because they’re libertarian. Nope.

                  The problem with giving a reactionary program the label “socialist” to sell it better (because socialist is such a great brand name to want to hitch your wagon to?) is that “socialist” has a team and a leadership structure (at least rules about who becomes leaders) – and those rules are “find the evil and insane and put them in charge”. You can justify socialism by making a right wing critique of capitalism which you sort of try to do but if you think the answer is anything called socialism you’re wrong because socialism is poison.

                Jim is arguing for something more than enjoying the decline. Alpha’s and alpha simulators can enjoy the decline and survive even if they want a family, if they are clever and lucky.

                What Jim is putting forward here is beyond that. It’s the beginnings of a blueprint for civilization restoration past the coming crisis. Men working together instead of all mucking about on our own will be necessary.

                  To take it a bit further, this was a comment from a different place regarding the discussion Jim is having here:

                  “A Reactionary organization is not an enrichment program for every single male. You accept those who’ve managed to “make it” DESPITE the present disorders.”

                  That is all well and good for the present time, but what that is is a plan for choosing who gets a spot on a lifeboat and who gets left to drown. It’s not a plan for ordering a civilization in a way that can be preserved long term.

Since you’re straw-manning me (the irony, the irony), I’ll tell you: I think to some extent ‘game’ is valuable, but only if it’s deployed in the way Jim himself deploys it, and not as degeneracy for degeneracy’s sake, which an awful lot of people do. I furthermore agree with Jim entirely that pretending we live in the 18th century when we in fact live in the 1960s is guaranteed to fail, which runs me as much afoul of ‘ducks in a row’ Christians and ethnonationalists as anyone else here.

                  For the millionth time, my post was purely and simply a statement of a single observed fact: human beings are incapable of refraining from straw man arguments and exaggeration.

                  So since you, like your colleagues, have utterly failed to understand that point, I’ll repeat it:

                  Human beings are incapable of making ‘objective’ dispassionate arguments and instead **ALWAYS** straw man their opponents: always and everywhere.

                  Game is a set of dominance-establishing techniques that ten years ago were pretty much totally and complete stamped out by public schooling and miscellaneous afflictions of contemporary post-industrial life. It has no morality. It has no opinion on “degeneracy”. It is the equivalent of (re-)training the common man in the art of war so that he isn’t a cowering weakling in the face of the barbarian hordes (i.e. women).

                  On the other hand, there is absolutely no hypocrisy in partaking of the fruits of the modern world while conspicuously decrying their very existence.

                  When we make a venn diagram of “white knights” “trad Christians” and “not-cucks” there is more overlap between white knights and trad Christians than between trad Christians and not cucks. There are trad Christians who aren’t cucks. There are no “not-cucks” who are white knights.

Perhaps they realize on some level just how weak they are. Then they speak about how they are going to send their daughters far away to college where she will be tracked to earn $150k a year. But in order to protect her from herself he will pull a voxday and put her in a shirt with threats that if any guy hits on her then her dad will shoot him.

              Hypergamy means that if females are allowed sexual choice, a tiny minority of men will pop all the virgins. Those men are the alphas.

              Alpha is what it is, and saying it is something different is not going to change that.

              My marriage was stable, and I looked after my wife and loved her all her days. Alpha, however, gets to bang more than one virgin.

              Since the vast majority of males never get to bang a virgin, and usually wind up with used goods that have taken more dicks up every orifice than they can remember, it follows that alpha gets a lot of virgins – and a wife and children on top of that.

              That is not a moral stance. That is arithmetic. That is a fact of reality.

              Proclaiming that terrorized and cuckolded betas are the real alphas will not change that reality. If women get what they want, hypergamy means that a very few males will pop all the virgins. Declaring that weak and frightened men are the real alphas does not work. Only denying women sexual choice can work.

              And only collective male action by men as a group against women as a group can deny women sexual choice.

              Reality is that a small minority of men get to pop all the virgins. Those men are alphas. To fix that problem, have to deny women sexual choice. To deny women sexual choice, need a moral ethic that female sexual choice is bad. A moral ethic that male sexual choice is bad is not going to work.

              If you say that men who sleep with very large numbers of virgins are bad men who should be low status, you are attacking male choice. Not going to work.

  10. Aidan MacLear says:

    Addendum: Female psychology evolved to work optimally under the dominion of a man. When young, the father, when fertile, the husband.

    When a woman is single for a long time, she slowly goes insane and becomes incredibly self-destructive. When 20-something women don’t have boyfriends or husbands, you see them booking every minute of their schedule solid: work, yoga, bars, restaurants, all sorts of faggy yuppie activities. Because if they’re left alone with no man to tell them what to do, they feel existential despair and begin to harm themselves. Sometimes, they even solicit rape, like a successful lawyer woman going jogging in Central Park in the middle of the night in 1990.

    The fact that women evolved to like and need male dominance is evidence that hypergamy has been held in check for a very long time. If we had female sexual choice, then women would have evolved to hop from high status man to high status man without losing their minds.

    • X says:

      I don’t know if you were indirectly responding to my comment claim that nation-state enforced K strategy patriarchy isn’t congruent with the universal trend to maximum entropy, yet I’ll respond with that in mind.

      Female hypergamy adapted when male patriarchy was highly decentralized in small tribes. Her fantasy to be invaded by the strongest tribe fostered both the trend to maximum disorder (i.e. entropy) and the fitness of the human species through genetic competition.

      Problem is that technology has shrunk the world and provided greater economies-of-scale for collective power. Thus any patriarchy on such scale egregiously exceeding the Dunbar number is doomed for the reason Jim pointed out in the blog; that the power of technology can be employed when capturing the power vacuum of collectives. A power vacuum means the most ruthless defectors defeat those who want to maintain order.

      Nature simply won’t tolerate such a large-scale order as the sustainable nation-state patriarchy, because it’s counter trend to the expansion of entropy that is required for us to even be able to perceive past, present, and future. Defection and R strategy is the way nature responds to such large-scale order.

      Patriarchy is only viable in a decentralized competition. We win by turning the rest of the world in an R strategy failure. The Jews seem to understand this, as it’s even written into their religion that they’re allowed to defect on goyim.

      So how to accomplish decentralized patriarchy in the technological era of ever more omniscient nation-states (and a coming world government driven by Bitcoin’s jurisdictional arbitrage) enabled by technology?

      • eternal anglo says:

        What do you mean when you say the expansion of entropy necessitates decentralized anything? Obviously, centralization implies complexity and functional complexity is hard. Jim has dealt with this as it relates to human societies in Throne, Altar and Freehold. But the literal physics meaning of entropy, which is what you seem to be referring to as you mentioned our perception of time, has nothing to do with this (except as a metaphor). The fact that the surface of our planet has the sun shining on it allows complexity and centralization to arise from the first bacteria all the way to a human body without irking the entropy gods at all. There is simply no limit set by entropy, at least until you get to heat death.

        I can rationalize your point by assuming that you are talking about something like Nick Land’s Hell-baked concept, but as it stands, I cannot make sense of you at all. Perhaps you could explain it in simpler terms?

          This is an argument Jorge Stolfi used against me on Reddit a couple of years ago when I was too ill with Tuberculosis to formulate my rebuttal. I can now do so. AFAICT that is a macroscopic obfuscation, analogous to Verlinde’s explanation that macroscopic gravity is really an emergent microscopic entropic phenomenon:

          https://steemit.com/science/@anonymint/the-golden-knowledge-age-is-rising

          The model of the Earth as body which only receives net energy fails to model that thermodynamic processes are irreversible (unless we exist in a multiverse but in that case our necessarily relativity-limited perception is that we don’t otherwise we couldn’t perceive time). As I explain in the above blog, there’s more much going on in the information domain, i.e. the Earth is exporting entropy informationally. If we only measure the heat from the Sun, we have only part of the story.

DV laws aren’t pushed by jealous rivals to layabout boyfriends – they are pushed by horrified parents seeing their innocent little lamb being abooooooosed. Mothers and fathers.

      No domestic violence, much like marital rape, are just ploys to destroy marriage. Assault was a crime before domestic violence existed. But now if I sleep with your wife and you get angry at her and “cause her to believe” that you might hit her she can now use DV to have you removed from your home, so that I may then move in.

      DV is almost never applied to a man who actually disciplines his wife. Some time ago when I first married my current wife she was throwing some severe shit tests at me that were serious threats to my life and my family. To which I responded by smacking her around a bit then having sex with her. This left her with a black eye. The next day, after she put makeup on, I took a picture of her. She had the biggest smile and was so happy. At work (this was before kids and her SAHMommery) another woman noticed and, the wife reported back, asked her what had happened. My wife told this woman that she got into it with her husband. The other much older woman said in response, “we really do deserve it sometimes don’t we?”.

      My ex wife did, however, charge me with domestic violence. She did this because I never touched her, never owned her, never dominated her, hence my touch was similar to being touched by a leprous beggar. And my touch was an assault upon her. Where as my much harder touch with my current wife feels to her like a man who will love, cherish, and protect her to the end of her days.

  13. SoC says:

    You miss out one very important reason that most men cannot see the terrible behavior of women. It’s because those women are not choosing to engage in that behavior, with them. But rather with other men. Men that the first group, the common beta male, find to be disturbingly low status. Such as a cute 16 year old doing anything and everything possible with her 36 year old homeless criminal drug addict demon lover. Accepting that the young woman desperately wants to get beaten around and commanded to submit in all sexual ways by that man, whom they consider far far lower status than get are, causes them severe cognitive dissonance.

    This dissonance is an assault on their own identity, their ego. This slight dissolution of their own identity as higher status than a violent homeless alcoholic (are they actually lower status than that guy?) causes them pain. Being too weak to work through the pain they reverse casuality and assign the blame for the woman’s lustful misbehavior onto the man, whom they are assigning low status to. He made her behave that way. Hence we will make it illegal for any woman under 18 to have sex with any man of 18 or over. Which, one of many restrictions, the dutiful men follow. Women see these men following all manner of restrictions, then they see that other man, Jeremy Meeks, and he does not follow any of these restrictions. Hence they see a large group of weak men, and a few strong men, whom they sneak out of their windows at night to go over and blow him.

    So yes I suppose you are entirely correct again. We have a weak man problem. Having spent enough time in the various alt right, nrx, and etc etc communities I will claim that these groups are over flowing with weak men. As are the commenters here.

    Having discussed many of these same issues with other groups of weak men, they always end up coming to the conclusion that they should band together as a group. But not to enforce female chastity, but rather to try to find the reckless bad boys and kill them all. At which point they go back to jacking off to internet porn. Still totally unaware that their put restrictions on all men strategy will not somehow have a different result if they just amp their restrictions up to capital punishment.

    It was good to see you try in such an eloquent way. From what I’ve seen of the various groups who would have read social matter, they are weak men. Hence social matter now reposts jacobite and says, to themeselves more then anyone, “Jim’s gone crazy man… I’m not really low status in the eyes of a horny woman. Right?”.

      When you talk about weak men is this as a relative thing or as an absolute thing?

      • SoC says:

        A weak man is a man who is afraid and then allows that fear to prevent action. Perhaps he is afraid to put a baby in his woman because the future might be hard. Perhaps he is afraid to call out women’s rampant misbehaviour because he fears that women will then refuse to text with him late at night about how awful their boyfriend treats them, and then all that work to build up that deep emotional connection so she will choose him at 37 to desperately try to have ivf babies goes up in smoke. Perhaps he is afraid to tell his wife that they need to get their daughter married off, and start setting her up on dates with proper men, because his wife rode the carousel and if he brings up the truth about women to her, or even allows himself to think about it in regards to his daughter, he will face shocking pain of realization that he is not the high status he has assigned himself, in women’s eyes.

        Proper men here being men who are mid to late twenties, who have a proven track record of success, and who want a marriage to a young debt free virgin or close to, with a strong family backing their new family.

        We do not need any support to create our own mini patriarchy. You do it from the ground up and you do it yourself.

        As far as feeling weak, feeling afraid, worrying, having hard times and often very hard times, all of those are the human male condition. The strong man in fact will face even more of those hard times as the weak man shows his weakness. He doesn’t try. While nothing will stop the strong man from getting back up and trying, again.

        As long as you are honest with yourself so you know where you actually are. You can then try, and accurately, and see the world for what it truly is. A concrete jungle filled with killer apes who have organized a great system of men who lie in unison. And who are not looking out for you.

    • On the Internet, no one knows you are a dog, sorry, I mean, a 15 years old guy. The alt-righter, nrxer weak men you see online may just be very young. How would you know?

      I was definitely a weak man at 15, although boy would be a more accurate term, but healing fast after 19.

      Let me try to describe the experience how it was like at 15 to be weak, from the inside, hopefully it helps. Going to high school. First thing I notice is a beautiful girl. Not sexy – shaped like a stick, but such an angelic face. Fall in love immediately. Not in the sexual sense, other girls I felt sexually attracted to, this one I wanted to worship. She refuses. I try to act like her servant, doing favors, hopefully she notices what a good nice guy I am. Doesn’t work. A year goes by. I hope my dog-like loyalty finally wins the hand of the pure ethereal virginal lady. Not. Once I manage to spot her boyfriend. About 20, I would not say he looked outright violent or criminal, but sort of the type between a rave DJ and a drug dealer, lots of piercings, looking wild. My first thought is that this evil man seduced this innocent angel. Finally I get out of it an immediately repeat the whole thing with another angelic looking female classmate.

      At 17, I am fed up with unreachable virginial angels and want a flesh and blood girlfriend. I ask my most popular male classmate how to pick up girls. He tells me places like gyms exist. I was very nerdy, not really living in the real world, just in fantasy of the various novels I have read, so it was a surprise. I go to a gym at the beginning of a summer break, and come back to school in September at 18 8kg muscles heavier, but my whole attitude has changed, confident, happy about myself, and understanding girls like some kind of a badassitude and if some other dude is more successful I just need to learn from him and imitate him.

      It took a very long time to see bad behavior at girls, though. While before I saw her dating the piercing guy as bad behavior, at this stage I understood that guy is more sexy than I was so I understood it now. I considered the whole thing entirely normal, girls just go for badass dominant confident dudes, what would be bad about it?

      In fact it took me MUCH longer, around 26-28 and starting to read RedPill blogs to think about female bad behavior. It was there that I saw a lot of men complain about bad female behavior. Girlfriends cheating, disliking girls who have high partner counts and so on. It was all very new for me. They are saying, correctly, that women like alphas so why do they consider it bad behavior when they actually fuck them? I was never cheated on, just dumped after about 5 to 10 dates when girls figured out my inner self is not so tough. I didn’t see it as a bad behavior. I saw it as I need to be tougher.

      Especially the complaint about the high partner count of women I did not understand. At least if she is experienced at sex she has more skills. Why is it bad? Is experience good in everything except sexual technique and somehow we should want a virgin because evolution, who has no experience of techniques to please? RedPillers calmly explained that it predicts cheating. OK, and? If I am seeing a girl and she sees other men too, and lies about it, I won’t like it when I find it out but not a disaster, just that this has now ended, that is all.

      No, they said, it is a problem in a committed relationship. Finally it dawned on me that many Red-Pillers are living in a past age mentally. They wanted to marry, often as young as 21 or 25, they wanted their wife to stay at home, they wanted to make enough money to support a family from one income and have kids. And they were really afraid if they marry a whore who then stays at home she gets bored, fucks the neighbor, they end up supporting his kids, and then the woman divorces and they lose the house and get financially raped. In short they wanted to live like their parents but figured it will not work with a girl with a high partner count.

      I was kind of surprised because even at 26-28 I had no intention to live like my parents as both the women I knew but even the world around me financially seemed unsuitable for it. In the year 2004-2006 you don’t simply take out a mortgage (remember the bubble), it is crazy. And the women I was seeing in their “bachelorette pads” were so obviously unsuitable for being a wife and mother that I saw no point of marrying. But I saw their behavior not something bad. It was entirely a good behavior from my angle, they see me as a sexy man and thus they fuck me without making a lot of complications about it. I liked it.

      It looks like the Red-Pill guys really did wanted to live like their parents, someone lied to them and told them it is still possible to do it like it is 1955, they wanted to do it so, even tried, and that was why and when female bad behavior hit them, hard.

      I was about 32 when I began to think I am already getting fat and halfway an alcoholic, maybe time to start a family before I lose all the energy. At this point I began to understand why female bad behavior is a problem. Sure, from this angle I wanted an entirely different woman than these ones. Long story short, found a well behaving woman, married, have a kid. But I did not marry one of the sluts I used to see, I used the experience of my 32 years to select for one for really good wife qualities like reliableness. I did not just marry a slut head over heels at 22 then expect she will behave well. And even then, still not enslaving myself to a mortgage and don’t have something as ridiculous as a life insurance. I just rented a suitable sized flat/condo. It is not 1955.

      So where I am coming from, ultimately, female bad behavior is hard to see not because of weakness but because once one accepts that women like to fuck badass guys, not nice guys, and becomes a badass guy and women fuck him, it is very hard to understand why is it a bad thing? And only much later when thinking about things like commitment and marriage it becomes clear.

      Maybe it would have happened had not everybody been a typical European “apatheist” up to my grandparents and perhaps further up. I didn’t really have moral standards to measure female behavior with. Nor male behavior or my own.

    OT, has anyone seen this piece by Vanity Fair lamenting that Miller is taking power within the permanent government?

    Gutting a refugee program, cutting legal immigration down, installing people in key roles to create a wall of bureaucracy that keeps immigrants out…

    but with no policy change that some judge could call out. Ousting a number of previously permanent bureaucrats, etc.

    https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2018/08/stephen-miller-refugees-state-department


    Earlier this week, the 32-year-old senior adviser was reported to be focused on an even more ambitious project: imposing strict limits on legal immigration…

    “By 2020, I would not be surprised if we just don’t have this program anymore,” said Jennifer Quigley, an advocacy strategist for refugee protection at Human Rights First. “I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s 5,000 next year and then zero.”

    “Our government is huge . . . it’s kind of constructed to slow things down and to make sure that individuals don’t wield excessive power. It’s got lots and lots of checks and balances, so it’s really difficult to pull off something like what they’ve pulled off, and they’ve done it.”

    I think most men of the right will support legally encouraged killing of men sleeping with their wives or daughters.

    My question is, how do we prevent it from becoming an excuse to murder whoever we please? Would we then have to go to court to prove the man slept with our wife? We already have a hard enough time proving self-defense is self-defense in court, so I hope we don’t have to go to court for honor killing, too.

          Bob’s point is a fair one I keep trying to point this out to Jim.

          The other thing is that people close to the guy you killed won’t like it much that you killed him in cold blood and it was legal, in the eyes of the wife’s murdered lovers friends and families they’ll think the wife was a whore and always was (and they’ll probably be right) and the husband was a mad dog psycho and should be killed himself, and maybe one of the family members takes it upon himself to kill them both (or perhaps arrange something on the dark web). This kind of thing can easily escalate to blood feuds.

          My reform would be to legalize dueling by consent, in the event of proven adultery the aggrieved husband could force a duel.

          • peppermint says:

            It’s easy to prove things now.

          • Theshadowedknight says:

            The blood feud ends rather quickly when the king’s men enforce the king’s justice on the family looking to get revenge and hangs the offender in public. If the king has the sense to back up the aggrieved husband, a blood feud is tantamount to open rebellion against the authority of the king.

            • The Cominator says:

              Only if the person carrying out a feud killing gets caught.

              I suppose you could kill the entire family and that might really deter things (I think the 9/11 hijackers and Bin Laden’s family should all have been hunted down and killed, and that the Saudi royals should have been forced to draw lots and every 3rd member should have been killed) but that kind of thing leaves a bad taste in people’s mouths even with really serious things like terrorism.

              I think feral women should MOSTLY be eliminated by allowing arranged marriages and making unmarried women (widows excepted) very very low status. I think you should allow husbands some disciplinary powers over their wives. I don’t think you should go further then that. Female bad behaviour can be minimized with such measures but trying to take more extreme measures ala Saudi Arabia to eliminate it causes other problems.

                  I’m pretty sure they did it.

                  My position is not different then the God-Emperor’s campaign position. Trump said the families of terrorists should be killed. They don’t value their own lives because of religious fanaticism so he was right and I am right.

                If you think that Saudi Arabia is taking extreme measures to eliminate female misbehavior, you have been swallowing feminist propaganda.

                It is just that any deviation from strict feminism for men and unbridled hypergamy for women is deemed worse than Hitler, therefore Saudi Arabia is worse than Hitler.

                Saudi men are as severely emasculated as American men, and Saudi women only marginally less feral.

                Just as Trump is not, in fact, Hitler, eighteenth century English patriarchy was one thousand times stronger than today’s Saudi “patriarchy”. Talibanic patriarchy, on the other hand, is comparable to what British patriarchy used to be. The point and purpose of the Afghan war is to teach nine year old schoolgirls to put a condom on a banana.

                  I don’t know too many specifics but reading about Rob Roy or pre English Irish culture it sounds like a lot of feuds were started over people being pissed off that their cattle rustling brother was killed.

                  I’m with you that Iran is like that. From what I’ve heard of Saudi girls if they want to behave badly they leave the country to do it.

                  The university system and that men stand up when women enter the room.

                  The purdah system was originally intended to restrain women from contact with alphas, but is subtly transformed into the superficially similar system of protecting them from contact with betas – primarily in protecting them from contact with guest workers, according to an anecdote from an expatriate wife.

                  Instead of protecting you by keeping your women away from high status males, protects your women by keeping low status males away from them.

            Seems to me the reverse happens. If you can kill burglars, you get zero hot burglaries, not lots of homeowner/burglar conflicts. If, as in England, one is not allowed to defend oneself against a hot burglary, the result is a gigantic amount of hot burglary, leading to a gigantic amount of homeowner/burglar conflicts.

            No hot burglaries in Texas. Surely the same is likely to be true of adultery.

            Deut 22:22

            I think if the wife is caught with another man, they both are killed. I’m not sure, but I think the chapter implies every man in the town stones them.

            If they’re not caught and rumors go around, then I would interpret that chapter to say that the stoning has to wait until they are found again. Can’t feud if they’re found together and both are killed.

              We should not rely on Old Testament law which Israel itself couldn’t follow…

              Jim argues for the 18th century and I’m fine with that but I want it implemented based on the features of what 18th century patriarchy ACTUALLY were.

              * Arranged marriage, let father arrange marriages from 14-18 whether the girl if he fails to do so the girl can elope though, if her father fails to find her an owner in four years (it won’t happen in most cases) she can look herself.

              * Massive stigma against single women beyond 18, massively relax enforcement of sex crimes against such women. Legally they should be considered prostitutes until they are married.

              * At the same time legalize prostitution.

              * Husbands can discipline wives up to a certain point but not kill them

              * Divorce basically not allowed (it took an act of parliament to get a divorce) no matter what either spouse did. I might be inclined to allow it if the husband can be proven a hard drug addict or he is sentenced to exile (I would not have jail) as a criminal or the wife becomes a drug addict.

              * Disputes of honor if they come to must be resolved via a duel
              so legalize dueling, maybe mandate it in the case of adultery if
              the aggrieved husband wants to force the issue.

              Some additional modern tweaks

              * Ban women from colleges except for schools for their traditional professions (nursing is okay for example)

              * Do whatever possible to discourage things like tinder. It may not be possible to ban them entirely but husbands who find their wives on such sites should be able to have them flogged and pilloried. Stopping tinder is more important then stopping adultery because things like tinder cause women to have an inflated view of their SMV. A woman who thinks she is a perfect 10 when she is a 6.5 is a bigger problem then a cheating whore who is realistic.

              * Criminals who in modern times women are so attracted to are to be made low status by flogging and pillorying (unless they are to be executed).

                Women are at their most beautiful from 19 to 24 for a reason. That is when they should marry. Women over 28 who are still not married are already made fun of and they know something’s wrong.

                Maybe girls under 18 can be betrothed, which is like being engaged but no sex and can be broken off without dishonor and upgrading to marriage may be contingent on the man fulfilling some pledge like getting into an apprenticeship.

                Prostitution, pornography, drug use, gambling, and strong language should be legal but if a person doesn’t want to see it he shouldn’t have to. Keep the main spaces in the town free of vice so men can take their wives and children to town.

                White people don’t do really do the Taliban thing and never have historically no matter how much Jim wants them to (I like Jim he is the most redpilled blog on the net but he is not being realistic on this) so the solution is to marry them off very early. At most they half ass the Taliban thing.

                I don’t think they should be married off before this, women may misbehave a little before 14 but its pretty easy (in the vast majority of cases) to control. Not so after that.

The very fact that White women are compellingly beautiful for those years indicates that that’s when they’re supposed to get married and furthermore indicates that they are capable of keeping their legs closed until then.

                It’s not hard, it just takes not being taught by the government that there’s no consequences for sex but no woman can ever really expect a man to stick around.

                  Yes, the appearance of white women indicates that for ten thousand years or so, they generally got married in their late teens or early twenties, and marriage was monogamous and durable.

                  In “Pride and Prejudice” the Duchess complains about the abandonment of this program.

                  Resistance to this eighteenth century iron hand manifested as hysteria – resistance was often disturbingly distressing, extreme, and forceful.

              > I think if the wife is caught with another man, they both are killed. I’m not sure, but I think the chapter implies every man in the town stones them.

              Not the practice implied by the Book of proverbs. Book of Proverbs implies it is up to the offended husband or betrothed.

              Also, Book of Proverbs is all about private incentives resulting from private action.

        • BC says:

          > I’m trying to flesh out the practical application.

          Under Roman law, if you killed the man your wife slept with you had to kill your wife as well. Of course, if you killed the man unjustly his family could have you brought up on charges and your defense would be that he slept with your wife and you’d have to prove it.

          In general killing a man screwing your wife generally happened after you caught them in bed together leaving no doubt to concerning his and her guilt. That practice continued through the early 1900s in America were men who killed such were found not guilty due to temporary insanity.

          • The Cominator says:

            The Romans COULD theoretically kill their wives in such circumstances up until some time during the Imperial period.

            But at least by the time of the Punic Wars it in practice almost never happened probably for reasons I’ve described. It would cause a blood feud with the wife’s family.

    • The Cominator says:

      And escalating to blood feuds etc.

      This is why in the 18th century you couldn’t just kill the guy who you claimed f***ed your wife.

      You had to kill him in a duel, and sometimes you’d be the guy who got killed.

  16. Ron says:

    “this young party girl, dressed in a bikini, would find some reason to hang around in that line of vision. You may recall that in my posts on testosterone and weight loss, I have frequently remarked that I have difficulty out-staring a pizza and a pitcher of Mountain Dew.”

    If any of this is going to work, modesty standards will have to be enforced. that means no bikinis, no twerking, full clothing even at the beach, and also no horseback riding for the little dears.

    otherwise, we will be right back to where we started.

    the problem of course is that most male monkeys want the bikinis, twerking, nakedness and depraved women who will even fuck dogs, because that means they are more likely to be able to inseminate a wider variety of females.

    this is to the disadvantage of all other males, and results in a social breakdown, as you pointed out, and as we see in front of our own eyes.

    the purpose of modesty standards is not to protect the women, anymore than laws against assault and battery are to protect thugs. these laws are to protect EVERYONE. If one man can freely beat up random people in the street without punitive consequence, then anyone can be attacked, and thus everyone has to watch his back, and spend inordinate amounts of time working out, training, getting health insurence, watching where he goes, etc etc.

    similarly, if we allow businesses to blatantly advertise verifiable lies to consumers, it does not just harm one or two people, it harms even people who have no interest in the product falsely advertised. No consumer can trust anything being sold, a great deal of work must be done by each individual to assess anything they use, etc.

    and similarly, if we allow females to use their sexuality without any punitive consequences, we have the problem of 12 year old girls displaying every last inch of their skin to mountain dew addicted alpha males. That is not going to work for a stable society. Girls must indeed be “whacked with a stick” if we are going to have anything resembling a functional society going forward.

    When a female starts bitching and whining about muh liberty, she needs to be whacked with a stick.

    When some dippy beta male faggot decides to strap on his sword and ride to miladies rescue, he needs to enjoy the ass kicking of his life. If he does this more than twice, he needs to be permanently “helped” to not be a threat to the greater society of males again. Said permanent help must be given with the reason of “because fuck you that’s why”.

    Because as far as the females and coward males are concerned, “fuck you, that’s why” is a very good reason indeed and makes perfect logical sense.

    Note how the same soy eating, chipmunk cheeked vermin who can’t shut up about “womens rights” and “deadbeat dads” have nothing to say about the burka, or female genital mutilation, or about honor killings. Note how quickly their mouths snap shut when the reason is “because fuck you that’s why”.

    • Eli says:

      Strongly seconded. I’d put burqas on all bitches.

      Google “frumka” or “Jewish taliban”

    • jim says:

      Book of Proverbs tells us that when a woman wants to seduce a man, does not need a bikini to do it.

  17. Conservation of sovereignty, Jim: if someone can keep the king from fucking the aristocrats wives, he is the real king and no one can keep him from doing so. Can’t keep elites trustworthy against their will.

    Perhaps this is why empires are healthy only as long as they expand: captured women and dead soldiers skew the gender ratio, making it easier.

    Ottomans were quite open about this: the way to keep the Sultan from fucking the generals wives was to stuff his harem full of slaves, 500+ girls, some of whom he never even got to. Men like variety, but too much is too much, and that was precisely the point, to keep him so satisfied that he never gets around to mess with the generals or aristocrats harem.

    Harems – keeping wives away from other men – help but do not fully do the job on their own. If you want the Old Testament, Uriah’s story is excellent. Bathseba is bathing in the enclosed courtyard of his house, invisible from the ground level but King David has a very tall palace and can see in anyway. Uriah’s harem architect wasn’t thinking in 3D. He gets a hardon and sends Uriah to die and fucks Batsheba. Nathan the prophet, basically a priest confronts him, but they have a healthy state where the king is above the priests and Nathan cannot really do much else than to foretell that their first kid will die. It happens, but King David does not really care and their second kid is Solomon. Nobody can keep a king from doing what he want, unless he is a shadow king. And the idea of priests controlling kings via soft power, such as the Pope, was popular, de Maistre liked the idea, but this is precisely what leads to holiness spirals, so rather not.

    And to stuff the harem of the Sultan full and most other high ranking men’s harem full required that the tartar kidnapped and sold huge amounts of Ukrainian women, this is why the word slave is coming from Slav as far as I can tell. Only external expansion – if not land, at least in people, this way – keeps an empire healthy. Entropy gets exported, in this case to north of Crimea.

    • jim says:

      > Conservation of sovereignty

      No man rules alone.

      The King can, and should, have a pile of mistresses, but if he fucks the wives of aristocrats, will lose power. This problem has caused many Kings to quietly and undramatically lose power, and a number of Kings to die violently.

    • peppermint says:

      If the king authorizes harems, I’d be a cuck not to interact with my ex at her and her bf’s party with the hope of banging her in the bathroom thus letting her play me against my bf, and her bf would have to dislike me for other reasons than that I think he’s he’s a midwit with strong virtue signals he calls ideas.

      I want to be restricted to my gf by well settled law so I can insult men without them thinking I’m going to steal their women.

      There was some germanic king who wanted a second wife and his nobles refused to allow it.

      The king can have whores and maybe we even let the no bastards rule slide as long as his bastards become monks.

      Though actually the rule should just now be, you can sleep with any woman who isn’t claimed, you can use any woman’s eggs to make a baby with a surrogate or artificial womb, but you can’t do both with any woman other than your wife.

  18. some guy says:

    You speak of the commands of Proverbs, the commands of Nature’s God. You speak of what laws work biologically, and what laws don’t. You like commandments and laws that work, commandments and laws the are pro-civic.

    But.

    Love of God is the first and greatest commandment, but no one today pays attention to it.

    (from James Kalb)

    You have missed the first commandment. What does this commandment mean? Why was it important to those men who built society? Why did they call it the first commandment?

    • Eli says:

      “Love,” in ancient Levantine context, means “eagerly serving”, i.e. going above and beyond obligations of a servant to his Master. (In this cas, the commandments and laws are the obligations). It has nothing directly to do with modern “love,” though it correlates.

      Figuring out the will of God, in the changing context of life and times, should count as part of exercising love towards Him.

    • jim says:

      The first commandment, and the first four commandments, concern man’s relationship with God.

      The last commandment, and the last six commandments, concern men’s relationships to each other.

      That the world is going to hell in a handbasket results from failure to comply with the last commandment, not the first.

  19. Mike says:

    Jim, if 9 year old girls really are a threat to western civilization, then, pray tell, how did you control your daughter when she was that age? You do have a daughter I believe yes?

    • peppermint says:

      By saying no when she asks for candy instead of vegetables.

      • peppermint says:

        Feminists say forcing a 9 year old girl to eat vegetables primes her for Polanski to rape her when she’s 13.

        In reality, allowing a girl to eat candy instead primes her to make irresponsible sexual decisions when shes 13.

        Polanski isn’t wrong that young girls are bursting with sexual energy. Normal adults politely ignore it and kill other adults who don’t with extreme violence. 70s America lets Polanski get away with statutory rape because of feminism.

        • Mike says:

          I’m sorry, but to me that just sounds like parenting 101. Of course you shouldn’t let your kid overindulge or do anything they want, even progs aren’ that dumb (yet). If all that’s wrong with our 9 year olds is that parents aren’t disciplining them enough, feminism could be solved today. The problem goes deeper than this, in my humble opinion. The real problem is that the Cathedral prevents the children from being disciplined or keeping the values that Jim talks about. Even if the parents theoretically do everything right, their 9 year girl still gets buttfucked every day they go out of the home due to public schools and other cathedral mouthpieces.

          • Yara says:

            Why is this a surprise? Hillary Clinton openly says that parents play a secondary role.

          • peppermint says:

            Some childless feminist theorist recently made headlines claiming that babies need to consent to having their diapers changed.

            It’s standard now to make sure children consent to your choice of clothing for them and hugs from family members, or else you’re perpetuating rape culture. I think that’s the creepiest thing that could possibly become widely accepted.

    • Roberto says:

      That’s the problem – currently there isn’t much to do to prevent 12-year-olds from fucking Jeremy Meeks, as they are wont to do. You can retroactively punish the men after the sex has been had, but that just elevates the status of Jeremy Meeks above that of the betaboys, and worse, elevates the status of sluts like Samantha Geimer.

      The retroactive solution, which is currently not allowed to be implemented, is shotgun marriage in case the woman is a virgin, or if she’s unowned and wants to ride the cock carousel, make it legal to rape her *and take possession of her*. The proactive solution is getting sluts like Samantha Geimer married off when they are aged 8-10; a father is not likely to marry off his daughter to Jeremy Meeks.

  20. Doug Smythe says:

    An aspect of controlling female misbehaviour that I find under-addressed in a lot of these discussions is that healthy, patriarchal societies defeat pernicious expressions of hypergamy by turning the logic of hypergamy against itself. It’s incontrovertibly true that, by default, women are aroused by tattooed criminals and other low-life. Every age, race, and civilization of Man except for ours easily deals with this by making the word “low-life” mean exactly what it says- namely, the lowest of lowly statuses. They would cause the likes of Jeremy Meeks to be promptly led to the stocks or whipping-post, the public spectacle of which presumably causes woman tingles to vanish right quickly, because there is no lower possible form of status (hence the public executioner himself has exceptionally low and degraded status, the better to impress on everybody that the recipient of the punishment is more lowly still). But in our late democracies, Hollywood rewards the criminal with fame and fortune, while the Cathedral at one and the same time exalts the criminal as more holy than his fellows. The tattooed criminal ends up besting the law-abiding citizen on *every* dimension of status and charisma, not just the directly physical.

    • The Cominator says:

      Doug quite right, criminals and low lifes should face as an aspect of their punishment public humiliation to make them low status.

    • jim says:

      Making the low status of low lives visible to women is one half of the solution.

      The other half is making the high status of high status males visible to women. Business suit needs to be more colorful, and open carry part of the business suit.

      Another big part of it is that restrictions on male violence against women and children, even entirely reasonable and just restrictions, emasculate men in the eyes of women, and such restrictions tend to be be applied more vigorously on high status than low status men and are difficult to apply effectively against low status men.

      So we should only apply such restrictions, even the most reasonable and just, to the extent that we can successfully apply them against low status males. Differential restriction that emasculates high status males backfires, as women will always find the violence against women and children that they thirst and hunger for.

      • The Cominator says:

        Agreed, abuse should only be prosecuted in obvious cases especially against women who really can get away from it (children should be protected in extreme and obvious cases).

      • Related: need to heal the jock-geek divide, the Athens-Sparta divide. It sucks when upper-class, educated, intelligent men are the wimpiest.

        This is something Britain did relatively right in recent memory i.e. insisting that it is precisely the upper classes who are likely to face the least amount of manliness-building challenges in life should focus on sports at college the hardest.

        I mean, Tolkien for example looked like a classic case of the room-temperature scholar, yet he wrote a letter to his son that he used to be such a fierce rugby player that hin “won his colours” in a year. (I think that expression means being put on the school team.)

        From the upper-middle class up, for people who value intelligence and education, it is all too easy to grow up as a bookworm. The more of a scholar one is, the more society must insist for him to be an athlete and assign status accordingly.

    • And we are making sure criminals can keep on physically dominating the upper class by locking them in prisons where they have free access to a weight lifting gym and tend to spend most of their free time there.

      Ideally I would engineer society so that the upper classes are also physically dominant, for example, steroids allowed only for them. But what would be actually doable right now is cardio only in prisons. I think it could even be formulated in a way that progs would support it.

      • Roberto says:

        Not all prisoners deserve to be imprisoned, though. I wouldn’t take away the prison gyms.

      • eternal anglo says:

        Why have prisons at all, except for holding suspects who are awaiting trial? Surely, come the restoration, the spectrum will run from fines to lashing to public lashing to hanging. Hanging and lashing can be made extra effective for cheap governance of large, unruly populations (e.g. in the colonies) by televising them. No need for lengthy and expensive prison accommodation.

        • The Cominator says:

          Prisons are not to be a normal form of punishment in a restored society (they might exist for spies who may be useful for information or to be exchanged).

          Penal colonies will be the closest thing to prisons that still exist.

        • Bob says:

          Fun fact, lashing was not considered cruel or unusual by the same people who wrote “cruel and unusual” into the Constitution.

          Lashings are cheap, a very effective deterrent, and best of all, make the criminal demeaned in front of women.

          Make Lashings Great Again.

          • The Cominator says:

            Lashings alone don’t necessarily make low status, especially if the criminal can take it like a man (not cry out etc). Need to pillory them before or afterwords for a while and have the mob throw things at them.

          • Doug Smythe says:

            “Cruel and unusual” was probably meant to cover haphazard and inconsistent punishment and/or wildly disproportionate criminal pains, both of which were criticized by the smart set amongst the Enlighteners (e.g. Cesare Beccaria) for being ineffective and inefficient. There is nothing in the phrase that precludes corporal punishment as long as it’s proportionate to the offense and uniformly administered each and every time, not just occasionally or sporadically.

            • The Cominator says:

              Cruel and unusual meant special treason executions ie being disemboweled drawn quartered and burned.

      • peppermint says:

        Instead of having nubile church ladies come to pout at and read the Book to prisoners, we should whip criminals and send them home.

        Have you seen graffiti all over the backs of the pews in a courtroom, and litter on the courthouse grounds? The police should just beat people who do that. Instead, they’re cucks.

  21. Reziac says:

    With regard to this shit-testing-the-boss thing, the correct response of bulling on through applies not only with women but also with other should-be-underlings. In my business, at which I am considerably more experienced and expert than average, I encounter the occasional client (usually a 30-something male, married with young kids, and roostering it but not really in charge of his wife) who is a misinformed know-it-all and who tries to tell me all about how to run my business, and generally makes like an uneducable idiot.

    I’ve found the best way to deal with this type of moron, if I want their money and don’t want them to become a problem client, is not to be nice or to explain things or in any way to give-and-take, or even to try to educate them as such. Rather, the best course is to talk over the top of them until they suddenly give up and start listening in sheer self-defense. At that point they become capable of learning something, and they usually pay me and go away happily-ever-after.
