Some random observations and musings from the weekend.
- I’m now left-right justifying all of my posts. It’s easier to read and cleaner. I’m going back and making older posts like this as well, for your benefit my gentle readers. I anticipate other bloggers will begin doing this also in the near future. I’m a leader.
- As the concept of Sexual Marketplace Value (SMV) has been written about much the last few days, I must inform all manosphereans that the concept did not originate in the manosphere, nor on blogs generally, despite unflagging efforts to convince otherwise. The concept is older, and likely originated in the minds of social psychologists and behavioral researchers within the last decade, if not earlier. An excellent example of this is the Baumeister and Vohs paper from 2004, titled Sexual Economics: Sex as Female Resource for Social Exchange in Heterosexual Interactions.
- In a recent episode of the CBS show Elementary, a one night stand is described that is straight out of a manosphere blog. A few minutes later, Sherlock Holmes uses the word “Lothario”. Coincidence?
- There’s hardly a better demonstration of American decline than the Hunter Moore phenomenon. However, it is incorrect to scapegoat him as a cause. Loathsome as he is he’s just a symptom. Some of his followers probably receive more attention and affection from him than they do from their parents, as twisted as that is. Parenting continues to decline in the U.S. and is the basic root of all its problems. From there stems and grows every other malaise.
- I’ve never witnessed a more hardworking people that the Chinese. American railroads wouldn’t exist without them. It will indeed be the Chinese Century, one way or the other. I find it ironic that young people in America complain about a lack of work. The truth is there’s plenty of ‘work’, it’s just not the type of work they think they ‘deserve’. This is hilarious, as most of them have no skills and aren’t very bright anyway. They fucked off in school and can’t even do basic maths. That they expect something better than cleaning toilets or flipping burgers demonstrates the entitlement of the American people. Immigrants take those jobs because it beats doing the same or worse work in their home countries, and because work is work, a job is a job. They move on and move up in ways that Americans don’t because Americans are typically lazy and waiting for a handout. (There are exceptions of course.)
