Why There Is A Gender Gap

Take a look at these charts of ill portent:

bad moon rising

bad moon rising2

Since about 1964, the gap between women and men in their identification with the Democrat Party and their Democrat voting patterns has been steadily increasing, with the increase especially pronounced starting in the mid 1990s. And as a friendly reminder, single women voted for Obama by a canyon-sized margin of 70%-29%.

There are a few predominant reasons for the gender gap, which I explained lucidly in this post. In short, women are voting more Democrat because the Democrat Party is the prime force for turning the government into the world’s biggest provider beta. From the time of the “sexual revolution” (which was really a “sexual devolution” back towards pre-agricultural mating norms when 80% of the women and 40% of the highest testosterone men reproduced) women have been more free to choose mating opportunities based on their gina tingles and the economic and social empowerment granted, respectively, by their pointless humanities degrees and the disintegration of traditional slut shaming mechanisms. The life of serial monogamy and alpha cock hopping has never been more attainable for the average American woman, and the result has been predictable: Women are substituting the beta males they no longer want or need for marriage with a Big Brother Daddy government to help them foot the child-raising bills that their PUA, drug running and serial killer lovers won’t.

Lest you’re tempted to blame the badboy bandits for not contributing their share, remember that women enter into relationships with these types of guys KNOWING FULL WELL they cannot be depended upon for support, and not even bothering to expect support from them. How often have you wondered why jilted women express more animus for their dumped betaboy child support and alimony paying lickspittles than for the irresponsible jerks who pump and dump them? Thanks to me, now you know why.

My gender gap theory can be refined even further, to get at the very heart of the issue, the fundamental law expressed in nearly every political trend of the past 40 years:

Maxim #66: As men are becoming ever bigger pussies and betas in their dealings with women, they are losing the leverage to shape and push women’s child-like and selfishly amoral political opinions in logical, just and long-term oriented directions.

Eventually, the world created by women will collapse, as all worlds built strictly on conceited, single-minded pragmatism utterly blind to the bigger picture must. The Democrat Party is merely the fool’s tool that fully emancipated women use to craft their poison utopia. As there are more women and joyriding alpha males than there are beta males, this collapse is inevitable, barring a violent revolution that discredits the philosophy of the voting booth.

Questions arise. Is it good for humanity if a socially enforced monogamous marriage system gives 90+% of men access to pussy and the replication of their genes? Had this been the case throughout prehistory, we modern humans might never have evolved. We are here in our present form because a majority of men (and some women) were denied, often cruelly, often tragically, a chance at reproduction. The sacrifice in blood and in psychological torment and emotional despair of countless distant ancestors was required to make us human as we now know it. We are living monuments to bloodshed and pain. Praise God and all His glorious works.

So while a mating system where 90% of men reproduce and are thus invested in the outcome of their society, and where women’s dangerously wild sexual and social impulses are partly constrained, has given us the pinnacle of civilization in the West and the East Asian lands, it may also contain the seed of its own demise. The widening gender gap is the canary in the coalmine; it is telling us that the final demise has arrived.

    elsewhere, you’ve posted that evolution (genetic makeup of humans) moves faster in modern technological civilzation than it did previously. (i disagree, believing instead that culturally-induced behaviors are equally important – in fact, that’s a side effect of our huge, complex brains – to allow different kinds of software/culture to be loaded in and function. which can and does have the ability to override the hardware.)

    monogamous civilization(s) is at least a few thousand years old. are you asserting that those patterns of reproduction had *no* effect on the human gene pool over that period? that our genetic makeup, and associated mating hindbrain behaviors, are frozen as if we were still scavenger primates out on the serengeti plains?

    re the Democrats – i posted yesterday that it was the white male elite that pushed, allowed, and facilitated the Pandora’s box (heh) of feminism. Women may control those particular levers of social control and redistribution, but it was well-intentioned men who handed them over.

    No. It’s basd for humanity to limit its male stock. Let’s look at this broad-strokes, by continent. In Europe, relatively egalitarian mating patterns allowed for the greates variation of good phenotypes — looks and inteligence, aggression and self-control, creativity and order.

    In East Asia, limiting male reproduction to scholar-mandarins gave us the Obedient Nerd. In Africa, the opposite thing happened, favoring dumb thug traits. That’s obviously not the only kind of people that come from east Asia and Africa, but this is, at least in popular consciousness, the predominant respective feature of those areas.

    In the end, limiting the pool of reproducing males creates a bottleneck effect.

    Also — women’s-choice matriarchies favor the thug, trending human evolution toward the dumb and the ugly, for both males and females. Big fat, giant-jawled robust women

  14. There is more than a grain of truth in the fact that there is an increasing gender gap in society, one that very strongly favors women, at the expense of men. Or more precisely, it favors young attractive women at the expense of everyone else.

    On the other hand, I think that the doomsday prophecies are a bit exaggerated and the foundations of the Western Civilization are too strong to dissolve over this matter alone. There is certainly some decadence at work and the traditional driving forces of our society – white males – are in retreat at the moment, but it’s a necessary transitional phase from a time when society was utterly dominated by (white) men to a more balanced world. At the moment we are witnessing a pendulum effect where all kinds of minorities such as black people, women, etc… are taking it out, so to speak, on those who used to run this world, but I think that the trend will reverse itself in due time.

    Young men these days are somewhat unlucky to live in a time when womens’ egos have been blown entirely out of proportion to their real self worth and hence the struggles that they go through. It’s these struggles that have caused the proliferation of the PUA community and even this blog.

    Also, I wouldn’t blame all the trouble in this society on the democratic party as they are the better of the two alternatives. At least they pretend to promote education and science – the two pillars on which everything stands, while the republicans can only mumble about easy substitute topics like gay marriage or abortion.

    That means for men who want to “play the field” … there is/was no field to play. In cultures that value marriage and family, yes, divorce is minimal to nil, however, people tend to marry very young (compared to the post-modern West) and there is no meat market of single, horny, available women.

    Of course affairs have existed since long, and where there’s a will, there is a way, even in those cultures, but by and large, there was/is no access to single men and women 24/7 like there is now here in the post-modern West.

    Which is perferrable to men? A life long marriage with a wife who more than likely will not cheat on you, divorce you and sue you for alimony/child support OR having access to a multitude of single women whom you MIGHT be able to bed if you can get your game together?

During the cold war and up to today, the U.S. military was the big dog keeping the Eastern Bloc (and now rogue nations and terrorism) at bay. this allowed western countries to spend that excess money that would have gone to building up the military if there were no check on the Russians on social programs, a la free medical aid, etc.

    2. other countries which instituted socialized medicine (such as Canada) have benefitted from the free research lab that is the U.S., which gives out the majority of medical innovations due to its capitalized view of medicine. One the US innovates, socialized medicine countries merely extract the cream drugs and procedures.

    Should the US move to socialized medicine, innovation would drop substantially,forcing socialized countries to actually stop much of their socialized medicine in favor of innovation, or else a new super power would ahve to start innovating like crazy.

    My point: Liberalized countries have long leaned on US conservative policies in the marketplace–military and medical, among others. However, should the US move to liberalization, these countries wille xperience rapid decay—much like a Williamsburg hippie would rapidly become swallowed in a wasteland of violence should all those “dumb rednecks” and “corporate pigs” in the military and making anti-depressents respectively suddenly quit their jobs.

If marriage is the Old World and what lies beyond is the New World, it’s the apparently stable men (comfortable alone in their postfeminist den with their Cook’s Illustrated and their porn) who are Old Worlders, and the Girls’ Night Out, questionnaire-completing women who are the questing New Worlders.

    The most important and unpredictable variable in all of this is technology, of course.

    Technology has progressed while civilization has devolved, and the technological progress is the only thing that’s made the devolution and regress bearable, sustainable, etc.

    But they’ve also been feeding each other as well of course, as tech progress makes civ. devolution possible, and civ. devolution makes tech progress necessary. So they’re linked very closely.

    I suppose it’s like a race to the bottom sort of deal. Can tech progress keep up with/outpace civ. devolution in order to sustain civilized life, or will civ. devolution be so rapid that it destroys the conditions in which tech progress/science is possible?

    Or will tech progress accelerate to the point that bio engineering/reproductive/genetic manipulation is possible? resulting in a society which, while dystopic in many ways in our eyes, nonetheless maintains some degree of order, civilization rather than the kind of neo-primitivism much of civ. seems hurtling towards currently.

    I’d like to see the state by state breakdown too. I think it’ll be very interesting to read.

    However, I’d like to take you to task w/your “kneejerk” remarks wrt Black folks’ support for the Dems. Simply put they do for two very important reasons-because the Dems lookout for what Blacks feel are their interests, and because the GOP hasn’t shown any interest in trying to get the Black Vote.

    Now, hey, the latter part of the above statement may not be a bad thing, depending on where you sit. But like I told SmartyJones earlier this morning wrt Thomas Sowell, you don’t sell anything by simply saying its the best. Anyone w/any knowledge of sales will laugh right in your face if you do.

    You make a sale and keep a customer because you’ve forged a relationship that in many ways, has very little to do w/the actual product. Simply put, the GOP hasn’t shown itself all that interested in forging a relationship w/Blacks enmasse, relying on its supporters to instead basicaly berate Blacks into supporting them w/stuff like “its better!” and so on. It reminds me of the guy who’s pissed that he can’t pickup chicks merely by the fact that he’s nice and has a good job-yea, so? We all know that he needs more than that.

    In a short run 15-20 years from now (as was duly noted on this blog before) virtual/artificial sex will completely redesign the landscape.”

    Kurzweil is very compelling with his arguments. Recently I read another one of his books “Singularity is Near”, which basically deals with the same subject. I think that his outlook of completely merging with machines within the next few decades is a little bit optimistic, but I can’t deny the power of his numerous arguments. Basically he outlines how scientific progress could skyrocket, but he doesn’t seem put enough consideration in the fact that the advancement of knowledge is often encumbered by political events and various social movements.

    In it’s pure state, however, his theories are a wonder to behold and many ideas gave me tons to think about. The basic premise is that within the next few decades we will be able to merge completely with our technology and become free of the constraints of our physical bodies. At that point we will be able to conduct scientific research fueled by untold computational powers coupled with the human intuition, which we are supposed to retain (otherwise it wouldn’t be a successful merger). The end result will be a period of almost instantaneous and almost infinite advancement in our knowledge. We will create a hive mind of sorts and eventually, in all likelihood, lose the need for individuality and focus on constant expansion of out computational power by transforming all matter in the universe into the most densely packed computational units.

    That may not sound so great, but as Ozornik mentioned, we are due for a period when we will be able to simulate sexual experience with absolute clarity either through the use of perfect sex bots or, maybe even more likely, direct brain stimulus such that external, uncertain sexual success will become irrelevant.

    It’s certainly worth living a few more decades to see how it all pans out.

    Politics also largely boils down to self-interest when it comes to voting.

    Except in the case of white men, particularly Anglo white men.

    That’s how women got the vote in the first place in Britain and American around 1920 in each.

    Before 1970’s white women’s liberalism also tended to be more of the altruistic, both genders white self sacrificing kind. Then affirmative action for women was pushed though as a feminist tag along to AA for blacks (that’s exactly how it happened and how the arguments for it were structure, and accepted by the media), and the Roe decision was handed down by the Supremes, but threatened politically. The Domocrats were the party of feminists. Other feminist legislation and agitation gathered strength, including sexual harrassment, domestic violence (with really hair trigger thresholds and presumption of guilt), and divorce and family law changes.

    So increasingly white women’s participation in left leaning politics became self serving as much or more than altruistic.

    Hence the gender gap.

And that is after the mass migration of black democrats from N.O. following Katrina).

    Many of the so-called “red” states have pockets of black dominance, espcially southern states. Northern cities with heavy black populations also get a large share of federla money—NYC is in fiscal trouble if it doesn’t get its daily does of terrorism, welfare, and housing money.

    “And you can’t pin that one on the “pussies”.”

We need to run some charismatic community leaders who can raise issues like same sex marriage and the failure of the educational blob. And we need to spend the money in these areas on campaigns, knowing full well that the effort will take time and have no guarantee of success.

  80. Actually, more recent evolutionary anthropology suggests that polygamy is relatively new to the species — something that came about during the agricultural revolution 11000 years ago. Prior to that, human tribes were pair bonded –> there was not enough social stratification among the males to support widespread polygamy. The pair bonds were cheated on, of course — that wiring, for men and women, runs deep. And of course women would still strive to make the best pair bond they could. But the society as a whole was more egalitarian, which prevented pussy monopolies from forming.

    The pussy monopolization programme came along with agriculture, which introduced substantial stratification, and generated the kind of top-heavy wealth that supports polygamy.

    Yes, far fewer men reproduced historically, but anthropologists don’t think that polygamy was the main reason. Rather, men are more subject to disease, and were much more likely to die die to (1) wars with other tribes, (2) death during hunts or (3) violence with other men in the tribe, various disputes resolved by violence and so on.

    A key recent resource for this is “Before the Dawn” by Nicholas Wade.

    Throwing pair bonding into the wind won’t work for the civilization. I think Roissy knows that.

And government assistance is totally welfare either. Section 8 housing for the poor. Social services for poor children. Government clinics in poor neighborhoods. The lower middle class blacks get these services as well.

    “it’s more likely that a small percentage of black alphas are doing most of the fathering, while others are being cuckolded or choose to be with woman who have been pumped and dumped by alphas.”

    —exactly. black families have broken down into the harem society, which is spreading to non-black families due to the lack of criticism of blacks society by non-black.

    If you spend time in criminal courts, watch the routine drug cases that come through. The sentencing part is always telling: the big drug dealers always bring up there 6-10 young children, and how impacted they would be should the father be put in jail for a long time.

    Smarter judges tend to note that the guy has those 6-10 kids by 6-8 different women, all at the same time, all miles apart, and hasn’t been supporting any of them; hence the claim of being a “good father” is severely undercut.

    I’ve said this before: 3-5 generations into the black families collapse, we now must seriously look at inbreeding in black communities as a problem to be addressed. As fewer and fewer men are mating with the available women and not knowing their fathers, its now almost definite that black brothers are fucking half-sisters and not knowing it.

  101. David Alexander, a man’s testosterone levels decrease as he ages and a woman’s T levels increase as she ages. That’s why you will find women in their 40s, even 50s, who are sex maniacs paired with husbands who can’t keep up with them. (perhaps why these women are renting Dreads in Jamaica’s renta-a-rest sex tourism industry).

    That being said, if a person, man or woman, in their 60s or 70s is taking pills in order to increase their sex drive, I find it highly undignified. There is a reason why libido wanes after a certain age in both men and women. If by your 60s you do not have anything of interest to occupy your time besides sex, you are in a hopeless state and I feel sorry for your grand-kids.

    How about the “alimony-gap”? Even though female-spouses now outearn their male-spouses in 36% of families, women still only pay 4% of the alimony nationwide. We should do something to narrow this alimony gap so that more Kate Walshes are paying more alimony!

    Since marriage and the things that women provide to men within marriage is no longer anything more than an emotional commitment for women in our society, that’s in truth only an ongoing optional one, male spousal support should end with the marriage.

    End all alimony and end the alimony component of child support. Non optional child support should be at no more than welfare levels. Beyond that the father should support his children according to his own sense of parental obligation. Women should marry men with a lot of that if they want to be sure of it after they divorce their husbands. Or — here’s an idea. Make the marriage work. As women in almost all other countries try much harder to do, than in feminist media, schools, and koffee klatches America.

    Re: Quebec and University

    Had I known that McGill (or Concordia) was so cheap by American standards, I would have attended school there in the first place. The only downside is that while it’s one of the top ranked schools in Canada, it’s still a lesser known school for Americans, it would have been a pain if I returned to the States and attempted to use it to sneak into the SWPL world.

    As for why tuition is so cheap in Canada in general, I suspect the presence of basic no-frills colleges (or CEGEPs which function like community colleges covering the equivalent of the last year of high school and first year of college in Quebec) with few of the fringes of full blown universities helps in controlling costs, along with massive state aid to keep tuition low instead of using the need-based aid that can be easily manipulated. Plus, one must remember that in Canada, all colleges are basically owned by the provincial governments, but individually operated (with the except of the University of Quebec system which functions like a US state school network) which does promote some degree of competition. Also, Canadians are cheap ass weirdos who seem to like riding buses…

  110. An interesting domain in the contemporary US where tech implications have an important role is the military.

    The military is of course one of the last remaining bastions of traditional conservativism among our public institutions, and thus is the enemy and target of much ire by the other institutions (much of the gov’t (part. the civil service bureaucracies, universities, media, etc.).

    It’s a holdout so far, but it has been under attack for the past couple decades, notably by the push for more women, changes in military policy towards gays, affirmative action in the service academies, etc.

    Now despite being detested for its conservative core and character, the other public institutions in the US need the military in order to maintain their own prestige and power. After all, military power ultimately undergirds the current global architecture that maintains the US dollar as reserve currency, allows US intervention in other countries’ affairs through NGOs and other orgs that provide jobs/prestige/power to all those individuals in the other public institutions.

    This drive to alter the military from its conservative core to become more like the other public institutions in terms of ideology, character will only be accelerated from here on out as more human personnel is replaced by robots and tech, as outlined by Peter Singer’s latest book “Wired for War.” As this tech change occurs, you can make do with fewer and fewer white men from red states manning the military, and just have fewer and fewer technocrats/bureaucrats man the tech/robot army.

    So they can have a kind of total ideological unity among the various public/gov’t institutions.

    As far as I can see this seems to be what we can expect in the next couple decades, barring any massive developments like war, currency/econ crisis, that abruptly intervenes to disrupt this process.

  112. Lurker, the majority of blacks are not poor. The poverty rate for blacks is 24.5%. The overall poverty rate is 12.5%. These estimates are from 2007 and given the recession are probably a bit low.

    S. – some stats on welfare and poverty in the US:

    The poverty line for one adult, non-elderly person is $11,000. For a family of four, the line is $22,000.

    Food Stamps: The benefit is about $100 per person per month. About 10% of the population gets food stamps. 51% of those are kids and 9% are elderly. 41% are white and 36% are black.

    TANF (cash assistance for families with children): The average benefit is $372 per month. About 1 million adults and 3 million children receive assistance. The number of people getting welfare has decreased by 57% since welfare reform in the mid nineties, and continues to decline each year. 21% work at least a few hours a week. 38% are white and 37% are black.

    Housing assistance and Medicaid are harder to quantify so simply.

    Long story short: 1) Most blacks are not poor and do not receive welfare. However, a larger percentage of blacks receive welfare compared to other groups. 2) the benefits aren’t that generous, way fewer people are getting them now anyway, and most of those people are kids.

  117. Pookie, as pointed out, that is 1) only the federal rate; states have their own welfare systems, which sometimes are more generous 2) non-welfare contributions (section 8, government clinics, etc.) are public assistance, and there are a ton of those.

    Plus, re: food stamps: If 10% of the population gets food stampts ( a form of public assistance), and 36% of that # is black, then, given a rough US population of 300 Million, then 10.8 million black people receive food stamps.

    Since 12.5% of the country is black, that’s about 37.5 million blacks. That means, roughly 29% of blacks–nearly 1/3–are on food stamps.

    So if 1/4 of blacks are considered “poverty level” and 1/3 are on food stamps, that’s quite a lagre percentage.

    And throw in in lower middle class (a social misnomer that once meant “poor, but with a mortgage”), and the other assistance (Section 8, etc.), the rough numbers seem to approach 50%.

  119. Doug1 – I am in full agreement with you about “no-fault” Alimony which is an outright violation of the 13th Ammendment. Like that other scarlett letter word, Adultery, alimony hails from a time where it was used to punish immoral spouses. It has no place in a post-fault ammoral world. Nowdays the people who are breaking the marriage contract (women who file 66-75% of divorces) are the ones who get paid “the damages” 96% of the time. So this old moral-tool, got deployed in an ammoral setting, allowing itself to be bastardized into an immoral-instrument by those crafy divorce-filing wives.

    My theory is that if we get even 1 state to abolish alimony outright, then it can be used as a template to roll out to other states. Texas currently has the closest one with a hard 3-year cap. I am not aware of any full-abolishment states.

    Perhaps this Alimony Battle going on in Mass right now may give us our first full-abolishment state after all the chips fall. This is a slim prospect, but we will soon find out. Here are more developments on this story:

    Indeed. That’s the bullshit of “child support”: it goes way beyond actual child support, and includes keeping the child in the same standard of living pre-divorce — which also almost always means keeping ex-wife in the same standard of living … precisely the standard of alimony. So the ex-wife gets de facto alimony under the guise of child support, regardless of what she did in the marriage or her financial ability to support herself, or her remarriage to a wealthy man. It is alimony that is assessed on a no-fault basis and survives remarriage under the “ruse” that it is “child support”. Massive unjustified wealth transfers to ex-wives is what it is in reality.

  153. Putting aside the simplistic D.C. Villager pap that Democrats = pussies while the 101st pasty fat-fuck fighting keyboard commandos here play John Wayne in their backyard bunkers and cheer on other people to go fight their wars,

    What, like Obama sending more troops into Afghanistan?

    It’s amazing how the press can twist things based on who they like. When combat deaths rose under Bush it was “King Bush II’s Policies Kill More Poor American Soldiers”. I just read an article yesterday about the increase in deaths in Afghanistan, under Obama’s command, but the twist was “Yes more soldiers are dying, but we have to expect sacrifice if we want The One to bring us victory.”

    I hate the press. And I hate liberals who demonize a Republican for war deaths but praise a Democrat even though that same Democrat swore that the wars would be over and the troops home the minute he was in office.

    More white men indeed have moved in partisan ID to the conservative side of the spectrum. These conservative whites are now concentrated in the Bible Belt, essentially the poorest part of the country. These states receive a hell of a lot more federal dollars, “welfare” if you will, than the blue states where all the “pussies” live whose dollars support them.

    I’m somewhat familiar with data on Federal spending per state, and I don’t see any such correlation.

    * In absolute terms, the states with the largest populations receive the most dollars. California and New York are hardly Bible states.

    * In terms of dollars taxed versus dollars spent by state I don’t see a strong correlation with the Bible belt states, or with “red” states. There may be a weak one, but this is a very misleading statistic any way because the data includes all Federal spending, not just “welfare”. If there are a large number of military bases in a low population / small economy state, then that state is being labeled as a “welfare recipient” when in fact their state is being used to a larger degree to help protect the entire nation. The same could be said for other Federal projects which result in money being spent in the state but benefits for the entire nation.

    * In terms of Federal welfare spending per capita by state, the statistic we should probably be going by, the list has plenty of blue states near the top, and blue states occupy the top three positions. http://www.amren.com/mtnews/archives/2009/04/per_capita_fede.php

    Nice try though.

  154. “”Since marriage and the things that women provide to men within marriage is no longer anything more than an emotional commitment for women in our society, that’s in truth only an ongoing optional one, male spousal support should end with the marriage.

    End all alimony and end the alimony component of child support. Non optional child support should be at no more than welfare levels. Beyond that the father should support his children according to his own sense of parental obligation. Women should marry men with a lot of that if they want to be sure of it after they divorce their husbands. Or — here’s an idea. Make the marriage work. As women in almost all other countries try much harder to do, than in feminist media, schools, and koffee klatches America.””

    From my well-travelled experience, marriage has a different connotation in more traditional cultures than it does here.

    Here, people are looking for “soul mates”. They expect their spouse to “complete” them.

    A husband is expected to be a father figure, brother figure, best friend, comedian, lover and romantic genious on the level of Don Juan DeMarco, provider, financial advisor, caretaker, shrink and doctor all rolled into one.

    A wife is expected to be a mother figure, sister figure, best friend, comedian, ideal hostess, porn star fetishist, caretaker, nurse, empathetic listener/counselor, financial contributor and Betty Crocker/Rachel Ray all rolled into one.

    Both are impossible standards to meet.

    In traditional cultures marriage is not about love or romance or exploring the outer limits of one’s dark side of sexuality.

    In traditional cultures that have low to nil divorce, marriage is about DUTY. Anything extra is an added bonus but not a requirement. (and forget exploring the dark edge of your sexuality).

    It is also not uncommon in those cultures for the ENTIRE family to live together. Western men are not into that since they have been cultivating independence since the age of 18 or younger and they value their space.

    It was only given that name long after the fact.

    The black riots from the 1960s onward killed more people and destroyed far more property than what happened in dried out old Tulsa..

    The Greenwood riot occurred but the historical treatment is one of the great hoaxes in American history.

    The exaggerated death rate is a massive hoax.

    The actual deaths were 39; 26 black, 13 white. Yet propagandists claim 300 to 3000!!!! blacks killed.

    But the larger issue of black failure to create a black economic network in America remains the same. One neighborhood in a small town in remote Oklahoma is completely irrelevant to the larger issue of black failure in the economic realm.

  162. Arrakis: Short answer: Canada IS screwed. What are you smoking?

    Long answer:

    Countries can become liberal and not fall apart as long as they keep their core populations who are usually high IQ, productive, and ethnically homogeneous. This is why things like universal health care works(ed) in those countries. Nobody minds chipping in for health care, because they know that the guy across the country is chipping in too, and you get a sense of being on the same team when 95% of the population is ethnically and culturally similar, so you have an affinity for those who needed help.

    Problems arise when these liberal countries decide it would be fun to import millions of third worlders instead of reproducing on their own. Canada is the worst of the bunch in this regard. We have the highest per capita immigration rate on earth. The government promotes this supposedly because ordinary Canadians are not reproducing in sufficient numbers. The NDP actually wants to double our immigration rate, to 2% of our population per year.

    So we have all the problems that Roissy mentioned and then some: Women moving to the big city and not reproducing, voting for BIG government to subsidize their lifestyle, and large scale population replacement. This goes largely unnoticed, as the immigrants mainly stick to 3 big cities, and our remaining social capital and institutions are quite strong and can keep things going for a while. Plus, we are a polite society, and what manners won’t keep quiet, new laws criminalising “hate speech” will.

    This is, of course, unsustainable. The government is working night and day to destroy our national identity and replace us with foreigners. Canadians, for their part, have simply rolled over, but it can’t last forever.

    Then the societies collapsed, transportation ebbed, and the reverse happened: gays were shunned, women were supposed to be pure, religion reinforced itself, and isolated tribalism emerged.

    It happens over centuries, not minutes; that we may not see it does not mean it won’t happen. A view of just Italy’s history—stoic Rome, then Caligula Rome, then religious rome, then corrupt papist rome, the counter-reformation Rome, then back to secular society increasingly ignoring religion—-reinforces this. Societies are not static or even linear, but circular in morality and evolution.

    @Chuck —

    The problem with this is that the species is not *solely* genetic, it is also socially developed. In other words, if we follow evo-psych and genetic supremacy type theories to their logical conclusions, most men will not mate, and while you have have a nice gene pool, no society can be maintained without most men finding mates. Generally civilization needs investment from most men in it in order for it to not only be maintained but to progress and thrive — having a mate has been what has provided this motivation to men so far in history.

    Now we could either (1) genetically modify most men to be worker bees (not only effectively castrate them, but somehow modify them to be motivated to productivity and investment despite being denied sex and a mate) or (2) transition the species to a hybrid machine/human species (post-humanity a la Kurzweil), where everyone is an alpha/10, and all sex is virtual, or (3) something else that is not predictable at this time is discovered and deployed to motivate the masses of men who go without mates in a de facto polygamous system.

    In other words, looking at it from the perspective of genetic optimization is fine, but unless you take care of the social impact of that, the effect on the species is nevertheless negative, rather than positive.

    I agree that he’s probably overly optimistic about the technological progress while the world at large is not as single-mindedly focused on scientific research and development. I stated something to that effect in my earlier post. I think we can forgive him that since science and technology are obviously his forte.

    However, I don’t think that his predictions are necessarily that outlandish, even if some of his prior prophecies turned out to be wrong. Past performance isn’t always indicative of the future. We could very well be on the verge of a technological leap. My best guess is that while it won’t happen as soon as Kurzweil predicts, it will happen eventually and it is not too far away.

    The trouble with technological advancements is that they usually come in unexpected forms – meaning that what we expect to be invented doesn’t materialize, but we get other achievements, often greater than envisioned.

    Strong AI is one of the things that we’ve been expecting for a while, but unfortunately the progress seems to have stalled and there’s been little to write home about in recent years. The biggest problem here is that we still just don’t understand how intelligence works and the best we can do is to built models to approximate it in attempts to reverse engineer. That, so far, has proven unsuccessful. It remains to be seen if a breakthrough will come and it is an anticipated one since it’s one of the key steps on the road to a singularity.

    One thing to keep in mind is even if we don’t get there in 75 years (what you’re considering ‘lifetime’) the definition of lifetime is constantly expanding. Once it expands at a rate greater than 1 year of life expectancy / year, then we will have eliminated the correlation between age and chance of death.

    Is it good for humanity if a socially enforced monogamous marriage system gives 90+% of men access to pussy and the replication of their genes? Had this been the case throughout prehistory, we modern humans might never have evolved. We are here in our present form because a majority of men (and some women) were denied, often cruelly, often tragically, a chance at reproduction. The sacrifice in blood and in psychological torment and emotional despair of countless distant ancestors was required to make us human as we now know it. We are living monuments to bloodshed and pain. Praise God and all His glorious works.

    The trouble with this Roissy is that in the modern technological world intelligence and inventiveness is much more important than it was before the agricultural revolution, and certainly before the commercial credit / capitalist revolution (beginning in the Rennaissance) and then the Scientific and Industrial Revolutions in the 17th and 18th centuries.

    IQ is now more important than ever. Social leadership and dominance remains valuable, of course. But high testosterone combined with low intelligence is a positive social detriment, not just from the point of view of a particular society and it’s values but from that of urban technological civilization in general. Yet women will reliably be more attracted to this type than to high IQ, low testosterone types. (Not all or even an overwhelming majority of high IQ men have very low testosterone. Perhaps most true geniuses do though. Still not all. Thank god.)

    In other words, from an objective evolitionary point of view, greatest gina tingles are now selecting for the wrong things.

    This was handled fine in East Asian and Euro societies (and also Arab Muslim ruled ones) by marriage customs and rules than regulated who got the pretty girls, or girls at all. No these weren’t real meritocracies and some not much at all, but the really smart tended to become economically successful, or at least enough so to have a wife (and probably quite an attractive one) and many children.

    This isn’t being handled so well now, to the extent the reports back from the 20 something and even early 30s trenches told here are accurate. I still think the vast majority of high IQ men will be able to reproduce if they want to. The trouble is the disincentives to want to if their wife will be encouraged by this culture and her likely slutty past to divorce him while his kids are still growing and hit him with massive divorce and child support=alimony theft.

    S,

    But the question is why African-American economic contributions are so low? Is slavery mentality that persistent?

    Excellent question. To answer it, let’s dispense of the US-centric worldview.

    Look ANYWHERE in the world, and blacks are always the lowest performing race. Whenever blacks exist alongside any other group (whether whites, mestizos, Arabs, or Indians), blacks will be poorer than the other group in that country. 100% of the time, without fail. Whether Brazil, Kenya, Guyana, South Africa, or France.

    Countries run by blacks are among the poorest in the world. This cannot possibly be the fault of the US, Britain, etc.

    And no, they are not genetically dumber. I reject this explanation too.

    Rather, African culture is so counter-productive, that blacks are still bound by their African limitations, centuries after they are detached from Africa.

    African culture is what has enslaved them, in the grand scheme of things.

  196. Seeking Alpha: I thought a lot about this for awhile. I’m more optimistic. We may not be able to upload our consciousness and be the same person, but we can rebuild our bodies 1 cell at a time until we are 100% man-made without ever effecting consciousness. You get to the same place – the cure of aging.

    Yes that gradual approach may work. One cell at a time. Or even replacing a brain cell neuron with an artificial piece, one “diode” at a time. Theoretically you could get to 100% replacement without the sentience, i.e. “you”, ever noticing. I guess the same could be true for going digital a little bit at a time, although there would be this awkward transition period where certain brain-operations were conducted in the old wetware, and certain activities conducted in the artifical computational material (i.e. computorium).

(Except for that subset of lower betas that are really brainy. All of the really brainy out to reproduce, almost, in this techno civilization.)

    It’s the higher betas in particular that we need to keep motivated, and yes betas too, again especially the brainy ones, as opposed the the simply dull, unambitious, middle of the roaders, i.e. the Dilberts.

    If the bottom 20-40% of males in attractiveness to females don’t reproduce, so long as all or virtually all with IQ’s over 130 among them do, then that would be fine.

    However we also should do all we can to discourage females from reproducing with low IQ, high T thugs.

    Culture (mediated partly through religion) has worked to tilt women towards reproducing with the more successful in the past, which crudely does this selecting I’m calling for.

    Affirmative Action for women is accordingly a terrible thing from the point of view of evolutionarily beneficial reproduction as well, since it leads to de-emphasizing male success (unless it’s enormous) and over emphasizing male T levels (which if uncombined with enough intelligence are a negative for civilization).

    Propagandizing again against single motherhood, as would clearly be in the best long term interests of children (with a few tough transition years perhaps, though not as tough as many might suppose in part because it would take a while to take hold) would have a strongly dampening effect on the creating of single motherhood as well, both the never married type, and then divorce for less than compelling reasons ones as well.

    Places like California or New York are characterized by VERY rich people and lots of poor people. Malibu mansions and South Central barrios (as illegal immigrants ethnically cleanse Black LA out to Riverside). The middle class is gone.

    Now, SWPL yuppies, women, and gays find that sort of thing attractive. Look at San Francisco, the Gay-Women-Wealthy hangout, with no middle class jobs that tend to be concentrated on uncool things like manufacturing, resource extraction, and the like. Instead SF is a tourist/gay/wealthy enclave, with almost no children (far too expensive) and no “boring” but absolutely required middle class paths to prosperity.

    Meanwhile, states like Utah, Idaho, to a lesser extent Texas and Tennessee (both having long-standing issues with Hispanic and Black poverty respectively dating back into the post-Civil War era) are experiencing solid middle class growth: manufacturing and resource extraction industries that pay solid middle class jobs, rather than nothing service jobs that are either broke Baristas (most of them) or a few Finance-masters of the universe. Real estate is also far cheaper there, allowing families to be formed.

    Women LOVE the princess stories, and part of the princess stories is the division into peasant and royalty. Women HATE middle class striving, they find it boring, tedious, a “prison” and so on.

    Judge — WHY would the pendulum swing back? In fact it cannot. We will never have all those White (or Black or Hispanic) kids that would have been born to ordinary Joes, who would have provided the solid middle class drudgery needed to create something great. Instead, we’re likely to slide into UK chavism, rapidly, and collapse within a generation. [Democrats are the Religious party and anti-Science: Gaia nonsense, Global Warming BS, anti-evolution/HBD.]

THEY promise (most of them) a “White Nationalist Socialism” with declining pots of money divvied up by race. No Muslims, Africans, etc. allowed. Socialism only works as long as you can pay people off. Eventually that comes a cropper.

    If the numbers we have seen are correct that 70% of divorce today is initiated by women, there is an obvious economic component attached. Some women actually live off nothing more than the “winnings” of divorce. After that, they get remarried and do it all over again.

    On Bravo, they had that show, Housewives of NJ. The whole series has different women in different areas of the country and often the women are not married at all. In NJ, this one women had two children lived in a nice house in northern NJ (the winnings from a divorce) and was awaiting a divorce “settlement” where she would be able to pay her lawyer bills that were in the six figures.

    This whore, who renamed herself Danielle turned out to have been a stripper, worked as an escort and had been arrested for extortion along with her drug dealing husband when she was in her early 20s. Other rumors from a book (written by her ex-husband no less) said she had been engaged more than 10 times and was a total slut.

    If the book had not surfaced on the show, her actions would seem no different than many atypical divorced women today. One word: SCARY.

    RE: asians assimilating with whites. Whites are more open to living next door to asians than living next door to blacks, in general.

    The reason is very simple. Not racism much anymore. Instead, race realism.

    School systems most of all. Also in some more marginal situations, i.e. lower middle class or middle class neighborhoods (or if subsidized section 8 housing is involved in any class neighborhood) fear of crime.

    Asians of the sort we mostly get in this country don’t hurt schools; if anything they help them. Lots of blacks or recent Hispanic immigrants esp. if illegals in classes, especially if/when an anti tracking ethos sets in as “racist”, most definitely does retard classroom learning levels for whites and Asians. This is widely understood and talked about elliptically. What’s usually talked about is how good the school district is. Also there’s the school violence and disruption issue, and animosities most likely coming more from black to white than the other way around these days. Parents seek to avoid all these things. Most if at all PC just want to talk about how good the school district is.

    Few whites are bothered if a few blacks move in, particularly if it’s an upper middle class as opposed to a lower middle class neighborhood. It’s when the percentages start to get higher that the fear goes up particularly among parents, who then look to move.

    Steve Sailer has written about this too. As have others of course.

Shut up and make more money, succesful people don’t worry about taxation of welfare, they simply don’t pay much in taxes. The truly rich get lots of their income in forms different than earnings. And you’ll never hear them complaining about these handouts. The real alphas game the system. Only the upper-middle class herbs get a large percent of their incomes taken away. Poor babies.

    In sum, the generally white upper-middle class herbs are being robbed: by the poor alphas (including some minorities) who enjoy the handouts on one end, and by the true wealthy, succesful alphas on the other end, who just write the rules to squeeze the most out of the working herb.

    Women who inherited or bought their own properties can and did vote in many instances prior to “women’s suffrage.”

    The real damage was done when men were given universal suffrage first…which eventually lead to women getting it…which eventually leads to our current FUBAR system.

  230. “…a mating system where 90% of men reproduce and are thus invested in the outcome of their society, and where women’s dangerously wild sexual and social impulses are partly constrained, has given us the pinnacle of civilization in the West and the East Asian lands…”

    This is exactly correct.

    The foundation of our civilization is the culturally and religiously enforced nuclear family. See this, for example:

    http://chicagoboyz.net/archives/004725.html

    Further, nuclear families are economic powerhouses. They “self-exploit” the labor power of parents and childred, and have been extraordinarily productive.

    Also, breaking down the old, polygamous, extended family networks opened up a world based on contract, agreement, consent, freedom.

    aoefe – don’t take it from me…

    One of the major complaints about the Canadian health care system is waiting times, whether for a specialist, major elective surgery, such as hip replacement, imaging procedures such as MRI or Cystoscopy, or specialized treatments, such as radiation for breast cancer. Studies by the Commonwealth Fund found that 57% of Canadians reported waiting 4 weeks or more to see a specialist; 24% of Canadians waited 4 hours or more in the emergency room.

    A March 2, 2004, article in the Canadian Medical Association Journal stated, “Saskatchewan is under fire for having the longest waiting time in the country for a diagnostic MRI—a whopping 22 months.”

    A February 28, 2006, article in The New York Times quoted Dr. Brian Day as saying, “This is a country in which dogs can get a hip replacement in under a week and in which humans can wait two to three years.” The Canadian Health Coalition has responded succinctly to these claims, pointing out that “access to veterinary care for animals is based on ability to pay. Dogs are put down if their owners can’t pay. Access to care should not be based on ability to pay.” The CHC is one of many groups across Canada calling for increased provincial and federal funding for medicare and an end to provincial funding cuts as solutions to unacceptable wait times]. In a 2007 episode of ABC News’s 20/20 titled “Sick in America,” host John Stossel cited numerous examples of Canadians who did not get the health care that they needed.

    According to the Fraser Institute, treatment time from initial referral by a GP through consultation with a specialist to final treatment, across all specialties and all procedures (emergency, non-urgent, and elective), averaged 17.7 weeks in 2005.However, the Fraser Institute’s report is greatly at odds with the Canadian government’s own 2007 report.

    Since 2002, the Canadian government has invested $5.5 billion to address the wait times problem. In April 2007, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced that all ten provinces and three territories would establish patient wait times guarantees by 2010. Canadians will be guaranteed timely access to health care in at least one of the following priority areas, prioritized by each province: cancer care, hip and knee replacement, cardiac care, diagnostic imaging, cataract surgeries or primary care.

    I don’t see that happening, but the solution is simpler: restore monogamy legally and culturally.

The issue is that women all have access to the sexbot men. That is what needs to change. If you just instituted sex AA for smart betas, or paid women or so on, and didn’t have enforceable monogamy, all you’d be doing is setting these guys up for an expensive divorce.

    This is a reminder that since January 1, 2009, many of the rules and procedures governing the activities of the Coalition, the Embassy, and our partner contractors and grantees (collectively referred to below as “contractors” for simplicity) have changed. USG contractors operating in Iraq are now subject to Iraqi civil and criminal law. Contractors’ residences and vehicles may be searched by Iraqi officials, pursuant to a court order, or under exigent circumstances. Contractors who violate Iraqi law may also be subject to the Iraqi criminal justice system, as the Government of Iraq has primary jurisdiction over offenses committed by USG contractors, even on bases and diplomatic properties. The U.S. Embassy thus urges contractors to respect and abide by Iraqi law.
    Contractors should be aware that possession of illegal drugs (including cannabis, cannabis resin, and cocaine), possession of pornography, and solicitation of prostitution are punishable by imprisonment and may carry longer sentences under Iraqi law than under U.S. law. Distribution of illegal drugs may be punishable by life imprisonment or execution. Additionally, contractors may be arrested and prosecuted for carrying weapons without permits or in prohibited areas, such as the commercial side of Baghdad International Airport.
    If a contractor is arrested by Iraqi law enforcement, we recommend that the company and the individual in question take several steps immediately.

    Because Women will not give up their gains. No matter how much you reason with them, talk to them, etc. Sure, some will here and there. But not enough to really make a difference societywide.

    There would basically have to be a Taliban-like assault like that which we see in Pakistan. And that’s not gonna happen for a number of reasons, but the most simplest reason?

    Because White Males, of which the Anglo founding stock is still the most influential if not the most dominant, simply cannot bring itself to use violence, even if it means saving their way of life, against its wayward Women.

In the New York case, the subways were essentially built as a public-private partnership where the government basically bankrolled the capital costs for construction, and the private firms made the profits via operation. While this worked at first, fares were fixed to 5 cents per ride which ate away at profits via inflation, and the city basically refused to allow fare rates to rise over a 30 year period which ended up bankrupting the private firms. The final straw was when a former private subway employee ended up becoming mayor and used public funds to operate and construct a competing subway system that in some areas duplicated the routes of private operators on purpose to drive them out of business. Once under full municipal control, the system stagnated due to a lack of capital funds for expansion with most public works money going to the burgeoning highway system under Robert Moses, and a de facto decision by management that their ridership base was those were “forced” to use it.*

    IIRC, the New York City Transit Authority isn’t over staffed per se on its operating side, and it has the highest farebox recovery rate of any transit system in the country, but the management side (especially at MTA headquarters) in contrast seems to be stuffed with people who are “owed” favours and such. Then there are the commuter railroads which have very generous union contracts and higher pay than the subway…

    All healthcare is rationed one way or the other and it always will be. The question is, how do you feel and how do you act when someone tells you that you cannot spend your own money to get what would be the best healthcare result?
    And people in the US without health insurance actually do get treated, they just do not pay. It is against the law to refuse care to an acutely sick person.

  279. Nova,

    This brings up another issue. Forgive me for jumping around. I’ve assumed that you were somewhat conservative/libertarian. You’re a proponent of societal protection but minimal government intrusion into personal lives.

    But help put this together for me.

    Social and legal restoration of monogamy is the greatest form of government intrusion. It dictates our entire lives. On the one hand, you don’t want government meddling in health care or tax collection, but you’ll allow intrusion into people’s ability to seek who they want to spend their time with. Like all forms of government intervention, this has unintended consequences. One of those unintended consequences is high rates of adultery. Another is high divorce rates, and possibly higher suicide rates and higher levels of unhappiness in men.

    The heart of my question is this: why is it okay to advocate against government intrusion in so many facets of life but okay to meddle in marriage via laws and government incentive?

    This is why I’m a pessimist on the future of humanity. We are social animals, but social engineering cannot work. There are too many variables at play.

  280. Of course, you gotta pretty big problem with this theory that white women are flocking to big daddy beta provider government: White women have shifted towards the Republican party over this time period. The chart shows this.

    Looking at the chart, white women went from 55-60% Dem in 1952 to 45-50% Dem in 2004.

    White men just fell off by even more, going from 55-60% to 35-40%.

    If the big daddy government beta theory were true, we’d see white women increase their Democratic voting over this period. At the very least, other effects swamp this effect.

    Both white men and white women have shifted Republican; white men have shifted more. That’s all.

    That won’t work either, and you know it. So the answer is: western civilization is finished. There is no realistic or workable way to motivate the men who society needs to motivate now that women are selecting mates in a maladaptive manner from the perspective of the overall society.

    If that’s the case then we should abolish marriage and family law, too, because it’s all government intervention. No marriage, and hence no divorce, no child support and so on. Everything privately regulated.

    Of course that’s a road to disaster. One must pick and choose. Some libertarians are extremists: let’s privatize the roads and so on. Others are more moderate. And others are realists.

    To me, preserving the civilization is a primary goal of the state, to the extent that there are legitimate state goals. Human society has not come up with any model other than monogamous marriage by which social investment by men can be assured. To me, that trumps any kind of ideology about the role of the state, because the survival of the civilization is at stake. Feel free to consider that hypocritical — fine if you do, but I see things differently.

Like all forms of government intervention, this has unintended consequences. One of those unintended consequences is high rates of adultery. Another is high divorce rates, and possibly higher suicide rates and higher levels of unhappiness in men.

    Actually, the government got more involved in the family exactly at the point monogamy started to slip away.

    It doesn’t take government intrusion to make monogamy the norm — it takes government intrusion to destroy it.

    For example, say a woman could leave her husband whenever she wanted, but she wouldn’t get any alimony or child support. Say she couldn’t get an ex-parte restraining order against a husband to remove him from the home, and she couldn’t kidnap the children with the support of police. And say social workers were all fired. How about removing enforced hiring equality and AA for women? How many women do you think would choose to ditch their husbands without all these government goodies? Maybe some, but very few.

    To go back to a mainly monogamous culture all we’d have to do is remove the government from families. It would be easy and cheap. Unfortunately, people would start complaining about how reality intrudes on their “needs” and would start demanding the government get involved.

    You see, claiming that monogamy is created by the government is all backward. It is quite explicitly government policy to make it easy for women to break their vows, and then profit from it!

    P.S. Modern liberal society is not neutral; it is a massive social engineering project. And it has changed how people now behave. Drastically.

    social engineering cannot work.

    Social engineering cannot remake people wholesale, but it can reinforce certain tendencies that people already have. And people already have tendencies towards lifelong exclusive pairbonding.

  290. Here are the Eleven-Strikes against Marriage 2.0:

    1. No-Fault Divorce (i.e. unilateral divorce, with no recourse for other spouse)

    2. No-Fault Alimony (i..e she cheats, he pays; the party breaking/violating the contract gets paid)

    3. 66-75% of all divorces are filed by the wife (CDC data; Google it) – cha ching!

    4. Presumed mother-custody in most state’s family courts (goodbye Daddy, hello ATM)

    5. Presumed guilty until proven innocent DV laws (now widely used as the “opening chess move” of divorce – once the husband is removed from the primary residence he never comes back, and she gets the primary residence in the asset split; you have 27 minutes to leave the house after the initial phone call. Also known as the Federal VAWA Legislation).

    6. Decriminalization of Adultery (you can run a brothel and still get primary custody of the kids, plus alimony!)

    7. Lobbying by the National Organization for Women against Shared Parenting bills in many states. (NOW is no longer about equality, it’s now about a zero sum game for resources. Children are cash-cows, and NOW will be damned if they allow Shared Parenting to stop the cash-flow. Divorcees of the world unite!

    8. Lifetime Alimony (One NJ Appellate Court recently upheld a lifetime alimony sentenced rendered for barely an 8-year marriage. Their argument was that now in these days of short-term marriages being the norm, 8 years was pretty long, and as such probably deserved to be treated as a long-term marriage. Brilliant!)

    9. Fathers Are Optional Parents (States are enforcing payment-obligations by non-custodial parents with an iron fist, however they are completely ignoring the visitation-rights of NCP parents. If you are going to police one parents obligation to pay, why not police the other parents obligation to allow the Dad to see his kids?)

    10. One Sided Alimony: Ok so ex-spouse B got used to a certain standard of living, so we will make ex-spouse A pay alimony. Fine. But how about the things ex-spouse A got used to? Shouldn’t we have some sort of reverse payment by ex-spouse B in the form of weekly cleaning, a hot meal 7 nights a week, and “romantic companionship” services? How come one spouse is on the hook to provide something that the other was used to during the marriage, and not vice versa?

    11. Paternity Fraud (If you missed the 2 year window to catch that your kids aren’t really your kids, you are SOL in most states. What’s worse if your cheating wife divorces you, and you can bring the DNA tests to court, and you will still be forced to pay 18-23 years of child support for these kids who are some other guy’s spawn). In most fraud crimes, once the crime is proven, the guitly party gets punished. However in the topsy-turvey world of Family Courts, it is the innocent party that gets punished. No one to this date has ever been legally punished of perpetrating Paternity Fraud to this date. If you are going to be a fraudster, this is the best kind of fraud to pull off.

    Ahem.

    Serious response: not under current law in most states. That would be considered a pre-nup, and pre-nups are easily avoided (duress, fraud, unconscionability) and when are are enforced at all, are enforced about asset division. Things like alimony, custody, child support — that is, the main issues for most couples — are not enforced when they appear in pre-nups (sometimes a waiver of alimony may be, depending on the state).

    What Welmer is saying is that the current law encourages women to walk when the marriage hits one of the low points instead of working it out. It really *is* that simple. The incentives are perverse. A woman can cheat on her husband, opt to divorce him, slap a TRO on him with a phone call and proceed to get house, kids, child alimony and maybe even spouse alimony to boot. That is an entirely perverse set of incentives — it really encourages women to walk when the going gets tough, rather than tough it out, and THAT is what has killed marriage.

    My niece lives in Newark, so I’m rather familiar with the city. Basically, the Brazilians and few white people left reside immediately next to downtown or in the Ironbound (which is isolated by train tracks) section as you stated, and Hispanics of both Central American and Caribbean orgins live in the northeastern sections of the city. My niece lives in that section and her mother chose it because it’s far safer than the rest of the majority black section of the city, and the rents were cheaper than in crummier neighbouring majority black towns. My niece’s father happens to live in what amounts to a very dangerous area in Newark that even my niece doesn’t like going to and waiting for a bus to take her home.

    Despite being within the commuter range, I don’t foresee much gentrification in Newark primarily because the city has an awful stereotype of being crime ridden despite decreasing crime rates in recent years and the relatively safe areas I listed above. Plus, there are much closer areas to the urban core in Manhattan that are far better candidates.

  314. Aoefe/Doug — See Dave in Hawaii’s cites below. Health care with single payer is always rationed. ALWAYS. There’s a scandal in the UK press, about women denied mammograms, who died of breast cancer. [They were deemed “too young.”] There was the story of the UK surgery patient who got up and cleaned her own ward it was so filthy, and the two men who denied dental care, pulled their own teeth or “fixed” them with superglue. Belmont Club at Pajamas Media has the gory details.

    If anything, I undercount the severity. Mark Steyn at the Corner had a bit where Canadian women are being sent to the US for delivery of their babies because Canada is out of beds and obstetricians. ALL systems of single-payer, government run health care “feature”:

    1. Rationing.
    2. Decisions on care made by bureaucrats.
    3. Some groups more connected than others get more, those without connections get less.

    There’s a pool of money. It’s not limitless, it has finite boundaries. This means rationing ALWAYS. Obama when asked by a Doctor during his hour long infomercial if he would stick to the plan he’s offering the general public, for himself and his family flat out refused. What does that tell you?

    Firepower — Rest assured the CIA bureaucrats who made life miserable for GWB will make life equally miserable for Pelosi and Obama.

    Speaking of a “gender gap,” some people are starting to call the economy a “Mancession.”

    Check out Christina Hoff Summers latest article:

    http://www.weeklystandard.com/Content/Public/Articles/000/000/016/659dkrod.asp

    A “man-cession.” That’s what some economists are starting to call it. Of the 5.7 million jobs Americans lost between December 2007 and May 2009, nearly 80 percent had been held by men. Mark Perry, an economist at the University of Michigan, characterizes the recession as a “downturn” for women but a “catastrophe” for men.

    Men are bearing the brunt of the current economic crisis because they predominate in manufacturing and construction, the hardest-hit sectors, which have lost more than 3 million jobs since December 2007. Women, by contrast, are a majority in recession-resistant fields such as education and health care, which gained 588,000 jobs during the same period. Rescuing hundreds of thousands of unemployed crane operators, welders, production line managers, and machine setters was never going to be easy. But the concerted opposition of several powerful women’s groups has made it all but impossible. Consider what just happened with the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    Last November, President-elect Obama addressed the devastation in the construction and manufacturing industries by proposing an ambitious New Deal-like program to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure. He called for a two-year “shovel ready” stimulus program to modernize roads, bridges, schools, electrical grids, public transportation, and dams and made reinvigorating the hardest-hit sectors of the economy the goal of the legislation that would become the recovery act.

    Women’s groups were appalled. Grids? Dams? Opinion pieces immediately appeared in major newspapers with titles like “Where are the New Jobs for Women?” and “The Macho Stimulus Plan.” A group
    of “notable feminist economists” circulated a petition that quickly garnered more than 600 signatures, calling on the president-elect to add projects in health, child care, education, and social services and to “institute apprenticeships” to train women for “at least one third” of the infrastructure jobs. At the same time, more than 1,000 feminist historians signed an open letter urging Obama not to favor a “heavily male-dominated field” like construction: “We need to rebuild not only concrete and steel bridges but also human bridges.” As soon as these groups became aware of each other, they formed an anti-stimulus plan action group called WEAVE– Women’s Equality Adds Value to the Economy.

    The National Organization for Women (NOW), the Feminist Majority, the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, and the National Women’s Law Center soon joined the battle against the supposedly sexist bailout of men’s jobs. At the suggestion of a staffer to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, NOW president Kim Gandy canvassed for a female equivalent of the “testosterone-laden ‘shovel-ready’ ” terminology. (“Apron-ready” was broached but rejected.) Christina Romer, the highly regarded economist President Obama chose to chair his Council of Economic Advisers, would later say of her entrance on the political stage, “The very first email I got . . . was from a women’s group saying ‘We don’t want this stimulus package to just create jobs for burly men.’ ”

    Not only is Obama utterly pussywhipped when it comes to his wife…he’s a complete and total tool for the femi-nazi’s.

    He IS the Mangina-in-Chief! Barack Obeta.

    @DA —

    Nah. You’re vastly overestimating the willingness of most women to part with their kids like that. Any divorce lawyer or marital therapist will tell you that for women getting the kids is very, very important, not just for financial reasons, but also because they really do consider the kids “theirs” more than they are their father’s. It’s been pointed out time and again that shared custody would give women the freedom to pursue other things (sex, career, whatever), but NOW and most women want the kids … period. And if they weren’t guaranteed to get them, you’d see women buckling down in the hard times and working through things rather than bolting for new guy and getting paid by old guy to do it.

    “Kieth – the difference between white women and GOP vs. DNC is based on whether they are married or not.”

    The chart still shows white women overall trending Republican over time. So maybe the white married women are going crazy Republican and that makes up for the white single women who aren’t going Republican, but you can’t get around it: In the aggregate, white women have become more Republican.

    My hypothesis: If we broke out single and married, we’d see a consistent gender gap, but single white men and single white women are less Republican than married white men and married white women. In fact, I’d guess both singles men and single women have trended less Republican over time, while married men and married wmen have trended more Republican.

  334. Let’s just face it. This country is skunked. It won’t ever be what it once was.

    Roissy is so right on. Even if you suck it all up, get married, have kids, support them all, and endure the wife and her infidelities, and the boring suburban neighbors, you may wind up with nothing, that is, no grandkids, no wife, and no money. All the the whim of the wife.

    American marriage (for men) is for the certifiably insane.

    Women vote so irresponsibly it is no surprise black men had the vote before white women.

    BTW, saw Public Enemies tonight. Very well done movie. Great. A good line from the movie. When Johnny Depp starts to get sweet on that girl, his friend advises against it. “That’s what they invented prostitutes for.”

    Also saw the Proposal. What a waste of a good concept. Stupid chick flick. Alfred Hitchcock could have made a great movie out of the plot. You know, something like “Sitka Psycho.” It has all the necessary elements. Two sociopaths using each other, big money, old girl friends, male authority figure problems, souring long time marriage, isolated island.

    Even as a comedy it was lame but good in a way for social commentary. Bullock, the castrating bitch boss, says she hasn’t been with a man for 18 months to show how non-existent her social life is. I guess in NYC that says something about a woman’s chastity. Now, what should her beat upon male assistant have said when told this. My choices would have been for him to have said:

    1. Me neither!
    2. You said you weren’t married!

    But, the Proposal is just a look at what the female thinks life should offer women. Just sick.

    Chick flicks are really revolting. But, they offer a window into the mind of the female. Pretty bad, huh?

  335. Keith:

    Of course, you gotta pretty big problem with this theory that white women are flocking to big daddy beta provider government: White women have shifted towards the Republican party over this time period. […] If the big daddy government beta theory were true, we’d see white women increase their Democratic voting over this period. […] Both white men and white women have shifted Republican; white men have shifted more. That’s all.

    This would be a good point if the Democratic and Republican parties had represented constant ideological positions through all these years. Yet, for many decades, the entire political mainstream has been shifting left almost uniformly in the direction of big provider government and progressivist social reengineering. (I say “almost” because there have been a few episodes of noticeable, but still mild and ultimately inconsequential reaction.) On most issues, yesterday’s center positions are today’s far right ones — the only significant exception I can think of is that the progressives have given up on crude economic paleo-socialism.

    Thus, the shift of the white electorate towards Republicans doesn’t indicate any actual rightward shift in their outlook; it merely means that they’ve been drifting leftward somewhat more slowly than the political center. And the fact that white women have shifted towards Republicans less than men implies that they’ve indeed become, on average, more leftist than men.

  347. The only way to reduce the child-support = spousal support Trojan Horse is :

    1) Have a properly-done Pre-nup (with lawyers on both sides), that, among other things, mandate that you, in the event of divorce, resolve your financial division issues through mediation or a panel of friends/relatives from both sides. Avoid the court system at all costs, as even your lawyer is not on your side.

    This at least decreases the chance of divorce (and hence decreases the chances you will face the child-support Trojan horse).

    Furthermore, asking for a pre-nup is also a great way to establish that you will not be a wussy Beta in the marriage. If you are afraid to ask and don’t believe you can persuade her that it is mutually beneficial, then you are not ready for a 21st century marriage, my friend.

    2) Marry a woman with an income similar to yours.

    3) Failing point 2), establish a Trust or Family Limited Partnership in Nevada (where laws are favorable to this). Have your attorney be the administrator of the Trust, so that your name is not on the initial paperwork. Fund the trust with something small like $200. Then, have him resign as the administrator, and move your assets to that. Have your employer pay the FLP or Trust, instead of you directly (although I have yet to verify if corporate employers would agree to do this). Then have the FLP pay you a salary about 20-40% lower than your original salary, thus reducing *your* income.

    Then, with *your* reduced income, buy long-term care insurance. That will ensure that if you need care in your old age, you will have a professional fully paid to do so, while also depleting your present assets (which are subject to divorce court).

    Do not own the house in your name. Have your FLP own the house, so that it is in your mother’s name, but you are paying rent. Then, she cannot ‘take’ the house.

    This helps you not only in divorce, but if someone sues you for something else too.

    Again, none of this is 100% foolproof, but it would take a lot for an ex-wife to crack all this to get the maximum. Simply mentioning all this in passing will intimidate her into thinking you know much more than her about assets, trusts, courts, etc.

    Deterrance is a powerful preserver of peace, as we learned in the Cold War.

    4) Of course, never let your Game skills atrophy. This is also crucial to preventing divorce. Most important are : make sure you are in charge in spending decisions, and make sure she sees other women talking/flirting with you from time to time.

    5) Make sure you get pictures of her naked, in your possession.

    Put this multi-layer plan in place, and you should be safe in 21st-century America.

That is not exactly helped by the all black associations, the whites not really welcome clubs and not too well disguised anti-white haters who are apparently quite welcome amongst the majority of black Americans.

Sadly, marriage forces us to pick one, and from my perspective, if you pick the 5, you’ll cheat on her galore with better looking women.

I am not sure how selective that was on the female part.

    Sex differences would not be so fine-tuned if women didn’t do most of the choosing when we actually evolved, which is mostly not in recorded history. Clearly men did some of the choosing too, or we wouldn’t have female tricks like exaggerated hourglass figure or big breasts even though that is not better for supplying milk. We would certainly not have female hypergamy, which is what we observe now and not merely some theoretical prediction, just by parents choosing spouses. Just like in most other species, females had most of the selectivity. If you think this is wrong and boring and irrelevant to game, please provide some references. The dowry is also not what you think but is best seen as advance inheritance to the bride, by no means to be confused with bride price, which is more common anyway.

  374. Kudos to roissy for getting away from dating mumbo-jumbo and going into challenging Half Sigma-esque debates.

    Has not roissy already asked whether technology creates a Beta society? Or, does a lo-tech society favour Alpha traits? Nowadays, almost anyone who’s born will make into adulthood and have a chance of transmitting their genes into the next generation hence Alpha genes will be diluted (or, in other words, you have to be outright O**** to not have your genes spread). In the ‘good old days’, few made it past infancy – you had to be tough and merciless to survive let alone thrive. If you wanted meat on the table you had to kill and carve the animal yourself so you wouldn’t give a hoot about animal rights. Today, many people either buy meat in quaint packages or go vegetarian whilst cuddling critters.

    However, one big thing about the sexual revolution/devolution is birth control. Nowadays, women get to choose when and with whom they will have babies. Currently most women choose to get pregnant late in their fertility span to Betas. In the old times a great many rampaging men do what a lot of animals do – they killed the men, kill their offspring, raped the local women and made sure merciless uber-Alpha genes continued to the next generation. At the very least, a woman could expect to get married very young, have her first child quite young, and if she survived childbirth, she would get pregnant again and again. Hence high quality genes would be passed from generation to generation though the amount of free will (especially on the woman’s side) doesn’t inspire personal awe.

    Undoubtably, if modern society collapsed and everyone had to become hunter/gatherers or bare subsistence farmers to have a chance of survvial (heck the Amish would seem hi-tech and well-off in comparison) then Alpha genes and real men would start to reappear. The big problem is that if you’re not one of the Alpha men then you’re life is going suck (if you live at all) and how many are confident to believe they’ll be one of the few who will have it good in an Alpha-favouring society?

    within such a party of twelve, i stumble along into this family reunion on behalf of my grandfather. my family of four plus my younger sister’s husband secures a nearby “cabin.” the inhibitions of “family behavior” barely veil the fact that there are no girls here, at all. our extended roster dined at a ‘club’ tonight which seated a few “acceptable,” aged, pseudo-5s that were escorted by overtanned, unfashionable, long-ago sweethearts. they all met the tatted, sunstained, within-30-miles-of-birthplace mold; attempting to swoop them would damage the economy even further.

    after four and a half days, i can’t take it anymore. i use a shyla stylez/nikki benz scene from my macbook harddrive to put out any proverbial fire. i blast my firehose into a tissue, wrap that into another nearby tissue, disguise it all within a paper towel, and toss it onto the far side of the empty double bed across the room (after all, this cabin is underpopulated). not twelve hours later, i look to dispose this ball of trash and am greeted by a disgusting new element: ants have infested my cumball ragtissue. there are at least two dozen ants feasting upon my jizzbomb without conclusive recluse. i tidied them up and pretended it all never happened, though i kept a watchful eye out near my reserve chewing gum stash (and other, similar places, for example).

    what is the proverbial, philosophical, and metaphysical explanation for such an oddity???

  380. and there’s this new MTV show out called “I Can’t Believe She’s Dating Him” that basically demonstrates all the stuff you’ve been writing about.

    the premise is basically alpha guys and their cute, often nice/sweet girlfriends, and showing the alpha guys act alpha/bad boyish while their girlfriends get (or at least pretend to) upset at them for not paying attention to them, for flirting with other girls, etc.

    now the tone of the show, as you’d expect, is basically like SWPL style mockery/sarcasm. it’s not surprising considering that the writers/producers of the show are most likely (like all TV/film writers/producers) the kind you’d find working at the Daily Show with Jon Stewart: hyper-literate liberal arts/humanities major, SWPL, wimpy, herb types.

    so they use snarky narration and are constantly referring to the alpha guys as “douchebags.” and the show usually ends with the girl leaving the alphas, and you can tell with all the snarky narration that this is how the beta herb writers/producers of the show see it as a vindication of sorts. the “douchebag” alphas they relentlessly mock are supposed to be losers that lose their hot girls, who presumably are going to then hook up with beta herbs like themselves.

    but the funny/sad thing about the whole thing is that everything in the show indicates exactly the opposite of what the beta writers/producers seem to desire/believe it to be. the cute and nice girlfriends are obviously attracted to the alphas/bad boys. hell, they even explicitly say that they love the whole dangerous bad boy thing, chasing after them, etc. they always feign anger and disgust when their alpha boyfriends are explicitly flirting with girls and getting attention from other girls, but it’s clear that this only makes them find their alpha BFs more attractive.

    it’s an excellent show that elucidates all your concepts and principles very well.

    all the alpha guys on the show are types you’ve discussed before: the peacock, the socially dominant jock, the tatooed wild guy, the lone wolf, etc.

    it’s even better because it’s been developed by omega herb writers/producers who seem to have deluded themselves into thinking that all these hot girls end up hating alphas/bad boys and always end up leaving them for smart, hyper-literate, sarcastic SWPL herbs with media/writing jobs. they’re apparently unaware that they only get the ugly refuse of chicks, and if they ever manage to snag a cute girl, she’ll be the sloppy sow runoff that’s been pumped and dumped a gazillion times already.

    Whiskey,

    For someone who regularly trolls for middle-class white men/families, i’m baffeled that you do not support an NHS-type system.

    Under the current system, middle-class Americans are burdened to death with everybody else’s healthcare costs (#1 cause of bankruptcy). Those without insurance pay inflated hospital fees to cover illegals. Those with insurance share the costs of the often upper-class, hypochondriac tard who wants an MRI – today!

    And yes, healthcare “rationing” SHOULD happen. There is no reason for all of us to pay (through increased insurance premiums) for often ineffective, 10k a month cancer drugs for octogenarians or 1k a day to keep vegetables hooked up to machines. At the same time, our “private” healthcare system doesn’t think its worthwhile to help SWPL couples have a kid safely (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=103270766).

    Also, LOL at Canadian women crossing the border to give labor. American white womyns have higher infant morality rates than ANY Western European country see here (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/05/02/AR2007050201436.html) and here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_infant_mortality_rate).

  386. The problem here is the unlimited franchise.

    Not one of the problems discussed here couldn’t be solved by simply limiting the franchise to “net taxpayers” in lieu of the white landowners that comprised the original cenceptual voting base. i am aware that there would be some difficulty in determining who constitutes a net taxpayer, but we make these statutory determinations all the time without too much agonizing (ie, random age of consent laws)

    with a franchise limited to tax contribution there is no issue over race, gener, creed, even age. if a black, white, man, woman or 14 year old manages to become a net taxpayer, they get the vote and more power to them.

    the notion that people who have absolutely no stake in maintaining a limited government can vote to expand it ad infinitum is ludicrous on it’s face. it is EXACTLY like allowing the lions and the zebras to both vote on how much zebra to eat tonight.

    I am proud to take credit for creating the “she-[noun]” formation! I first did this when I wrote “she-lawyer” on this blog.

    The English language kind of allows the feminization of a neutral noun by adding “-ess” (as in actress) or more quaintly, “-trix” as in “aviatrix” or “dominatrix,” to the end of the word. Alas, such a suffix is inadequate in exploiting the comical effect of feminizing an object that is normally understood to be masculine.

  388. @dana- i showed your post to my political scientist wife this morning, for what reason i don’t know, and she got a little bent out of shape. based on the well-known facts that (1) poor people vote less than rich or middle class people; income and education are the strongest determinants of voter turnout- and (2) most government transfers go to the middle class, and even the rich, not the very poor, who receive much less than the popular imagination holds. if you add up mortgage deductions, amortize police/safety/defense/local government, pile on those huge future social security payments, most taxpayers will receive more in benefits than they pay out over their lifetimes. only the super-rich, that pilloried 1% that controls 20% of the wealth, and some corporations, are net payers. so in effect, you’d go back to a plutocracy? this debate, politically and in theory, was settled 100 years ago.

    also, poor people pay more taxes as a percent of their income, becase they earn wages that are easily withheld. rich people have earnings from investments, etc., which are taxed lighter or easily hid overseas. flat-taxes such as sales taxes also hit them harder.

    the closest i’d ever want to go in this direction is a literacy test for voter registration. they used to exist in this country, mainly as a way for whites to keep poor blacks from voting in the south. but these days, with segregation not an issue, they could usefully be revived. the state provides a high-school edcuation and/or GED for free. citizenship and civic participation bring responsibilities as well as rights. there was actually a proposal i saw somewhere in some state, to the effect that drivers licenses could only be issued to kids with HS diplomas or GED. great idea – talk about an incentive.

  391. maurice,

    the problem is is that the US was not set up to have SO many people be so effected by government that their immediate enfranchisement mattered. a limited federal government of small scope that exists mostly to enforce rules against interpersonal violence and ensure private property rights doesnt REQUIRE many people voting in order to ensure a decent free life for those people.

    democracy is overrated a la mencius moldbug. it’s actually largely irrelevant to our rights and prosperity. you could have any form of government and still have liberty and prosperity as long as it strictly enforced private property rights and had a stable and predictable rule of law.

    the expansion of government into everyones lives attended the expansion of the franchise as more and more groups with no stake in limited government and free enterprise were allowed to vote their interests and be courted in blocs. i would abolish all those schemes that have caused our “middle” class to receive federal benefits.

    its not about class and income–its about people having a stake in limited government and free market. no one who get’s a tax refund is really paying “income taxes” from what i understand. i could absolutely be wrong. this would leave out most people who aren’t in business, basically.

    many many many women and female dominated
    households in the US are “middle class”and higher but the women work in bureaucracries and non business.

    think about whole tiers of “middle income” pink collar jobs that wouldn’t exist in SOME way without government–1st off obv, teachers then there are vast numbers of government workers in a million areas, social workers, court personnel, case workers on and on. how many women and female dominated house holds are net taxpayers under that definition? i bet you very few.

    no government worker is a taxpayer. they are tax shufflers–tax money goes in, tax money comes out–no wealth is created.

    the other big sector of female “work” is administering “benefits”, affirmative action and anti discrimination laws for companies. this is called human resources. while it is not a tax consuming activity–it’s existence as a tier of jobs rests on the existence of complex and arcane government schemes that i think most of us agree should cease to exist.

    the main problem i’ve come up against is the military–while they are certainly paid by the government i think the nature of their role and service would probably entitle them to the vote–i would have to hash that out more.

    Well, I don’t do buttplugs, and I don’t find the kind of humor some find here to be my liking, so I won’t be writing like that; can’t please errbody.

    But I don’t anyone who get down like that. To each his own.

    Captain Napalm, again I don’t have any problem in the least w/how business is done in America. My problem again, is in how so many White folks aren’t willing to be honest about it-in fact, to the extent that any such “anti white” sentiment exists among Blacks, its the sneaky, underhanded and milquetoat way so many Whites do their ish. Just be a Man and simply say that you don’t wanna hire Blacks, period-its got nothing to do w/”kbeing qualified”, looking or sound “right”, etc. Its simply the factb that its yoour business, and you reserve the right to hire and fire for any reason you choose. Don’t be surprised how many Black folk will actually respect such a Man, or Woman. They’ll also despise and hate your hates, but they’ll respect you.

    Having run a few businesses in my life, believe me, I know all about the importance of having qualified people. I also know the realities of what we call The Hookup-nepotism, and it is rampant in White Male America. Again, that’s cool, I have no problem with it, and actually it can have some benefits. But again, let’s be brutally honest here, and that’s why so many Black folk have an axe to grind against some Whites.

    I learned that in business you can’t also be an ideologue-cant serve two masters. You either wanna maximize profits, or you wanna make a point and remain comfortable. And see, in the businesses I ran, if you don’t produce, you don’t eat. So I was very results-driven. And I did whatever it took to meet my sales or production goals because, simply put, I like to eat.

    So I hired any and errbody who could do the job-and guess what, the people who were the biggest slackers? Yup, you guessed it, WHITE PEOPLE. The people who had the most hustle to make the sale, were guys off the corner slingin’ rock who wanted to go legit before they either got locked up or killed-and guess what, White customers LOVED EM, because these guys really wanted it. Like me.

    So, on mo gin: I got no problem w/the idea of unqualified Black folks. I just don’t buy that err single White person you see on the job is to the teeth qualified, either. My own direct experience, so many times in so many different jobs, tells me otherwise.

  407. I sat on the commuter train going home recently, and enjoyed a rare treat: sitting next to an attractive young woman. She started a conversation with me, and I quickly got the skinny on her: a Flyover naif, just done with graduate school, come to the big city to seek a more exciting life.

    She was around 25, brainy and somewhat nerdy looking, blonde and lanky like a young Darryl Hannah. An 8, I’d say. Something about her, maybe her small-town naivetee, maybe her undiscovered inner slut, made me really wanna nail her.

    (Note, I’m married so I wouldn’t actually try to close any kind of deal with her)

    Her “undiscovered slut” is a quality I picked up on from conversation. She came across as a good girl, but only by custom. She didn’t conciously know this yet, but having moved to the Big City was the beginning of a long, exciting ride on the alpha cock-carousel.

    She said how much she loves to travel (thanks, Roissy, for your many wise observations over time), and back in her flyover state she had a romance with an immigrant laborer bad-boy Slav.

    So that’s the background I gleaned from our conversation. A nice girl, all in all, and may she ramain so despite the odds.

    Anyway — this is where my reading of this blog bore one of its fruits. I ran thermonuclear game on her. Better game than I had in my single days, when I was a novice practitioner of the Crimson Arts.

    Again, not to close any kind of a deal, but just for fun. And it really did feel good. Examples of what I did:

    – when her arm pressed against mine early on, I did not “politely” shift out of her way. I let myself enjoy the touch of a strange young pretty girl.

    – she started off talking “professional stuff” with me. her nascent career, plus what I do, which was prompted by the fact that at first I had some work stuff I was reading. I gently but firmly redirected the conversation along this trajectory:

    (1) glossed over any talk about what I do by shifting the topic to what she does. You know, work is boring and I wanna maintain the mystery as to my person.

    (2) I glided over what she does, a relatively professional line of work, with due interest but without lingering too long on this; the idea was to treat her like a silly little girl, not like a Professional Woman who must be Respected.

    (3) I deftly moved the convo to personal topics regarding herself. Soon enough, got her talking about love, her ideas and ideals on love, her past disappointments in love, and how today is the begining of a new exciting life for her (keeping things positive).

    – I did about 15% percent of the talking, mostly asking her leading questions or making sagely one-line comments on her revelations. My attitude was “talk to her pussy, not to her mind.”

    – There was unmistakeable kino escalation. I let her press her arm against mine, at one point she pressed her hip toward the back of my nand. She touched my hand once durning the ride.

    – I deployed one of my natural assets: the “nice eyes” girls always told me I have. Strong, smiling eye contact with an understated sensuousness. Her eyes were ligthing up when we looked at each other.

    – toward the end of out chat (the train was almot at my station) she was on fire, blushing, looking at me, talking with that mix of shyness and excitement. My dick, at that point, was ready to burst out of my pants. There was precum seepage.

    Anyway, a little rundown on Game for your enjoyment folks. And I realized two things:

    My power over poon is huge. Scary-huge, frighteningly powerful, much more so since I said goodbye to singlehood.

    While what he says is true about Newton, Salk and others looking out for their “extended family”, ie Whites by way of their intellectual acumen and by essentially giving up some or all of their own reproductive fitness, he misses out on the key point, that A, we no longer live in a time when such sacrifices are sought *or appreciated*, and B, that the meaning of INDIVIDAL HAPPINESS has immense cache in our time. Simply put, the reason why PUA seminars, bootcamps and blogs like these are packed to the gills w/today’s Newtons, Salks and Watsons is becaue they too want to participate in the Poonfest that has been going on in the West for easily the past few decades now. If One’s theory is so legit, I invite him to give the same speech to a bunch of IT guys at the next bootcamp and report back the results of the overwhelming numbers of said guys willing to basically wind up like Dave Alex for the rest of their lives.

    Lastly, I want to stress the fact that I do not have a particular axe to grind w/the basic premise of HBD; but rather, I do have serious axe to grind w/the motivations of some of its loudest cheerleaders. We need to be brutally clear-they are not dispassionate amatuer scientists, investigating the veracity of real differences between the races-these are people who wish to use HBD as a means to discredit those who they deem are unfairly vilifying them and their kind. Hence, the HBD movement isn’t scientific as much as it is political, they just don’t say as much outright.

    The role of the mass-media and the people who own and control it (Jews) needs to be mentioned. Jews obviously own and control the programming in at least 90+% of America’s mass-media, and thus they are the ones who have been filling the heads of America’s women with all of the poison mentioned here: the hyperconsumerist attitudes (“shop till ya drop!”), the constant lusting after bad-boys as is found on all of those female TV channels (Lifetime, Oxygen, etc), the desired ‘freedom’ from having to worry about family concerns or child-rearing, the faux egalitarianism for Blacks/Hispanics/one-eyed dwarf handicapped lesbians/etc, the wanting of a ‘worldly’ education and a ‘hip job’ in some soulless urban area where they live superficial lives of decadence and unconstrained sexuality, and so forth.

    Again: it has been America’s Jewish community, the urban far-leftist Jews who own and control America’s mass-media, who have been filling the heads of America’s women with all of this poisonous nonsense. Thus one day they shall have to be brought to justice for their role in undermining and corrupting America’s White women.

    One time many years ago when I was arrested for something (it was nothing that would paint me as a person of low regard) and the cops at the station were done booking me and asked me to sit down on the bench for a few minutes, there was a woman who come in and make a complaint about her husband with whom she was going through separation.

    She said that he grabbed her by the wrist outside of the bank where she was going in to make a withdrawal. She added that it was very painful and asked if they can arrest him for battery.

  418. Re: Betas wanting to join the public poonfest.
    Yes indeed, this is the key fact. In a more conservative/traditional world the whole subject of pick up skills would be a non-starter simply because no one sees any picking up going on. Until very recently, what is currently normal in the dating scene would have been stigmatized as extreme sluttiness. Our current scene is unprecedented.
    Something that women seem resistant to understanding is that the sexual choices displayed by hot young women is the biggest force in human affairs. No priority for straight guys is higher than being on the right side of that deal.
    In other words, in former times guys generally assumed they were not missing out on a lot of free-range sex because either it was not happening or because it was out of sight. Celibacy, therefore was bearable and there was a belief that in time the poon would come in the natural course of getting older & more accomplished.
    That is one thing.
    When guys see and know that there is a whole lotta shakin goin on, but not with them and not with the kind of guy that they are growing into, that is quite another.

    You aren’t taking in to account the critical factor of race/ethnicity. Canada isn’t rapidly decaying or falling apart under socialism/liberalism because that country remains overwhelmingly White.

    Socialism/liberalism is entirely tolerable and workable as long as a nation is almost totally ethnically/racially homogeneous, either in Europe, Asia, Africa, etc. Actually, socialism/liberalism is preferred in nations that are ethnically/racially homogeneous (or nearly so) because then that government charity/assistance will be going to support people who are literally related to you in an ethnic/racial sense. Note the following words carefully and always remember them: socialism can only succeed in nations that are ethnically/racially homogeneous – and socialism will always fail in very multiracial/multiethnic countries.

    However, once the ethnic/racial makeup of a country starts to become too skewed toward non-Whites as is currently happening in the USA, the country can no longer support socialistic/liberal policies and thus starts to decay and fall apart.

  435. Isn’t that pretty much what Section 8 housing is?

    No, Section 8 is really a transfer of housing responsibilities from local governments to private landlords which allowed the government to escape the business of owning and maintaining homes. The real problem with Section 8 is that it’s expansion was based on the Gautreaux Project in the 1970s where a select number of project residents were given housing vouchers to find housing in the private market with results finding that suburban participants were able to leave welfare, find jobs, and have children who became successful as well while urban participants followed underclass norms. The transition to Section 8 failed because the Gautreaux Project participants were heavily screened via background checks and only a small number were allowed to move into each community to avoid inducing white flight.

    BTW, Section 8 also causes issues in black working and middle class areas. My mother’s friend lives next to a Section 8 recipient who annoys her with loud music, screaming, fights, and poor property maintenance.

    Why are American stewardesses so damn unattractive?

    Unionization basically means that American flight attendents work as career, so you’ll find older women who have been working for nearly ten to fifteen years, and pretty girls in America have much better and easier options for meeting hot guys. Plus, thanks to declining pay, the younger ones tend to be of slightly lower class ranks than their previous generation. In contrast, for certain areas of Europe and Asia, being an FA is the best way to meet foriegners (read: men) with money and some degree of influence and power or at minimum have access to the alpha cock carousel.

    Exactly. The attitude of feminists is that most men need to get over it and accept that they are not going to be men most women are interested in. After all they are not “entitled” to mate.

    What you see there is the female sexual strategy run amok — which is, in its core, what feminism is all about. Without a counterbalance to it, you get one sex’s strategy careening forward unchecked.

    The one silver lining is that, as Thursday rightly points out, there are quite a few betas who are reproducing quite nicely. Many of them are religious, but as he says not all are. The alphas are the ones who are pumping and dumping and not reproducing, so they are actually *losing* the evolutionary game, in a rather ironic way.

    Right after 9/11, when Americans were exposed to the subjugation of women in Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia, I could not help but notice that it was American MEN who were pounding the table about oppression of burka’ed women. American single women didn’t seem to care one bit about the plight of women under the Taliban, even though these SWPL women are the ones who benefit the most from American society vs. Islamic society.

    I never see SWPL women wanting to protect womens rights in the Islamic world. Similarly, I never see Islamic women trying to escape to the West.

    Conclusion : Women like to live in their own bubbles, and be unaware of the outside world.

    Thus, just as the 4 horsemen (the pill, no fault divorce, etc.) gave women power and created the feminist-dominated society we have today, many average women are being hurt, but they simply will not challenge the status quo.

    The 4 horsemen of Male Vengeace will soon be upon us, swinging the pendulum back our way. These 4 horsemen are :

    1) Increasing Islamic immigration into the West
    2) Sex technologies for the Beta (3-D/VR sex and sexbots). Anyone who says this cannot replace a real woman has to also note that the virtual woman will be a 10, while the real world options for the man might just be 5s or 6s. So it is a virtual 10 competing with real 5s. The real 5s lose.
    3) More men learning Game
    4) More lower-income men getting disenfranchised, and banding together to take things by force (usually from women).

    Of course, women lack the vision to anticipate these 4 simultaneous forces that will topple the feminist utopia by 2020. Women accept the status quo now, they will accept the new status quo then.

    WRT the feminist argument that most men are not entitled to mate, most women are not “entitled” to safety. Either. I don’t see active militias, but I do see gangs, lots of violence because as noted, women love winners and the biggest way to be a winner is decide who lives or dies. It’s why gang members making less than a McDonald’s fry cook have more sexual power than say a pre-crash real estate broker. The women of France staged their own unconditional surrender to the Germans, leaving French men not much invested in them after the War. Most French men cheat like crazy on their wives, and don’t give a damn about them one way or another. It’s why France is collapsing.

    The Mancession means that men will simply thug it up. They’re not going to just disappear. Women can “run things” like the West African matriarchies, and men will simply compete for women by thugging it up. Women will be the targets of violence too, along with children, as in West Africa. Men won’t care because neither will be “theirs” and male cooperation will simply cease. It will be all against all, and recall weapons give the advantage to the most psychologically ruthless, not necessarily the biggest or strongest.

    Both partners are making sacrifices. Don’t be obtuse.

    See I don’t know guys need to marry a genious woman like my wife. She has a ‘carreer’ her hair salon and her rice fields They do not take much time. She already sacrificed before I met her working to save money to build her house and pay it off. So now she has her child that she adopted when we both have wanted one and she didn’t get one through sex from me. Instead of running out and trying to get another guy to impregnate her she just got an adopted kid to raise (after asking me for permission). Yea everyone in the extended family is having fun with the little midget including her. She has almost all the time in the day to take care of her husband when I am there relax and network clean the house cook do dishes. So yea what sacrifices is she making.

    I on the other hand in order to insure that she had that lifestyle and I make some income when I go home one day when we are together have sacrificed almost every minute of my life over here in this dessert shithole for 4 and a half years.

    So yea that is why she tells me to come home and don’t worry about it because she has not been americanized to believe that working all day is a priveledge and being able to be home and relax and spend time with extended family and her kid is a sacrifice. She tells me to come home and she will take care of the money side of it because she understands that I have been sacrificing my time and body for us. She wants to repay me for the sacrifice I have made for my family. This is mind boggeling. She understands that I have made a sacrifice to be here. Unlike the woman I have been seeing who are divorcing there men that I work with and still expecting a fucking payment for not doing shit.

  537. Just to backup Tood’s “Four Horsemen” idea (good idea!):

    Keep in mind please: it only took 19 Men to knock down the Towers.

    These were not the losers of the IQ lottery. All of these Men came from middle to upper class backgrounds in the Middle East, and were educated abroad; Muhammad Atta was an engineering major at Hamburg.

    None of these Men were getting laid. Their final act before flying those planes into the World Trade Center, was to spend the nite at titty bars getting lapdances and drinking whiskey.

    Cho, the Virginia Tech killer, created total chaos and terror armed w/only two pistols. Think about that for a second.
    Two pistols.

    Klebold and Harris were cnstantly taunted and jeered by the Jocks and Pretty Boys of the school, and vowed to get revenge on them as well as the *Black Jocks* of Colombine High. We all know what they did. They weren’t getting laid.

    The Northwestern U killer, same deal, his girlfriend, probably the only one he had, dumped him prior to going all out in a blaze of glory.

    One can go on and on w/documented examples.

    In my Hip Hop DeeJaying days, one thing I repeatedly noticed was that the only guys who consistently started fights, were the guys who weren’t getting laid.

    So yea, what Tood and Gig says, is definitely on-point, because most people, Men and Women alike, simply do not understand just how many guys out there aren’t getting laid. And that leads, invariably, to a lot of ANGER.

    Women especially simply cannot comprehend this, since even for the most homely Woman, she can still get dick if she wants it. True, it may not be the dick she wants, but it beats a blank. For so many Men, especially in our times today as Roissy has laidout above, getting on first base, let alone getting your dick wet, can be all but impossible for a sizable amount of Men.

    What happened to FemX recently is only the tip of the iceberg; note how NO ONE came to her aid. Same deal at Virgina Tech. And Colombine.

    And so on.

    The difference this time, is that we won’t just be dealing w/angry, disaffected Left Enders, but they’ll be joined by their Right Ender brothers as well. How many of them do you need to cause widepsread panic and real pain on an entire society? Left Enders are a nuisance on the micro level.

    Right Enders can be catostrophic on the macro level.

    Again: it only took 19 Men to knock down the Towers.

    I try to reframe negatives as part of my work. Try reframing prenuptials this way:

    If you say a prenuptial agreement is a sign that a relationship lacks trust, the opposite is also true – a couple in a trusting relationship ought to be able to work out issues and put them on paper without damaging the nature of their relationship. Discussing and resolving thorny issues before you enter a binding marital contract is simply a smart thing to do. Because the relationship is still relatively “open” before marriage, both partners are less likely to feel trapped or pressured. An open-minded, relaxed atmosphere can help promote mutually beneficial conversation.

    What are your thoughts on that perspective?

    3-D/VR/Holographic sex will be decent enough and affordable enough by 2020 that a lot of men will disappear into them. Since the VR woman is a simulated 10, and the reality for a Beta male may be 5s and 6s, he will probably just spend time in VR sex.

    It will be analogous to having a free unlimited lifetime pass to the best strip club in town. Any man with such a pass would go daily. And yes, they would do this rather than spend time and money dating 5s and 6s.

After all, it’s women that are divorcing men in America today, overwhelmingly, rather than the other way around.

    Thanks for explaining pre-nups and the financial aspects of marriage.

    It is often said that the two main causes of relationship failure are:
    1) bad sex
    2) financial troubles/issues

    In essence, controlling the way money is organized between both partners is important. Without that organization, trouble can ensue.

    Also, I believe this references a previous discussion between tood and anony on becoming a stay-at-home mom:

    Why is everyone knocking stay-at-home moms? I agree, that yes, maybe some are lazy and don’t do what they should. The same applies to people in the workplace. Those that do work hard have a lot to do. Maybe they are PTSA president or chairs and on top of that cook dinner and take care of the children. Don’t tell me that you can replace a home-cooked meal with fastfood or t.v. dinners. That’s bullshit (excuse my language), and you know it.

    I have a feeling that putting down stay-at-home moms was one reason why women wanted to leave the home and enter the workforce, and possibly even spurred feminist movements. If women weren’t being valued for their work, then…well, screw it, they were going to go somewhere where they could at least earn their own money and be in control of it, and gain value in a materialistic way.

    Although I think it’s a lot more complex than that.

  557. Personally unless a woman is disabled she shouldn’t have access to alimony. I do however feel a mother should have access to child support. Once a child has reached maturity and/or after college is finished the support ends. Plain and simple. The child should be able to be supported at the level of support they had when the marriage dissolved (i.e. they don’t become pauper families). I think some battles over child custody arise out of child support monies, a mother realizes she’d have fewer dollars in her pocket if there was a shared custody agreement so seeks full. Is this a system failure? Or perhaps the mothers wouldn’t be able to afford their current housing if they only received partial child support monies. It’s complicated.

    There are creative ways to deal with divorce. I have a friend with children, her ex husband is a lawyer and they have a fancy house, in a fancy neighbourhood. They didn’t want the kids to leave their surroundings so they rented a divey apartment in a rather scuzzy area – he/ex lives there one week and she lives there one week – the kids stay in the house. Creative management. She does not get alimony and went back to work when the marriage ended.

    Prenuptial agreements can prevent the messiness of divorce in terms of asset division, company ownership etc. They can’t always prevent alimony payments – the law is not quite clear on this from my understanding. Factors like the length of marriage and other details would be taken into consideration.

    All in all they’re a great idea and either partner who runs from them is not facing the bleak facts about divorce in this country. Of course we all want to be in the percentages that survive, but there’s a pretty equal chance we won’t. Let’s take our heads out of our asses people.

  607. aeofe,

    How do we as women help change this around? Do we speak publically? I’m serious.

    I will always fight alongside a woman who is interested in changing the system to be more fair.

    Solutions :

    1) Since Divorce is no-fault, alimony absolutey MUST have a high burden of justification (the three As, as was mentioned before). No-fault alimony is the killer.

    2) Child support should be restricted to the cost of daycare or a nanny. Absolutely no more, simply because the man makes more.

    The father can choose to give money directly to his kids by comtributing to a 529 plan or a trust, which thus bypasses the wife.

    BUT THERE SHOULD NOT BE CHILD SUPPORT AS A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF THE MAN’S INCOME, WHICH EFFECTIVELY BECOMES ALIMONY FOR THE WIFE.

    3) What you can do :

    Become an advocate of fairness towards men, the way a tiny number of women, like Helen Smith and Amy Alkon are. Be someone who helps explain to women why a pre-nup is in the childen’s best interest, as money can go to the children’s 529 plan rather than to lawyer’s fees. A pre-nup reduces the chance of divorce in the first place, which is also better for the children.

    Become a counselor or mediator in this regard, if you have the time and inclination. But we certainly need more women like you.

    Countries like India have very low divorces. It is NOT because Indian women are more moral or have any special capacity to make their husbands happy. It is simply because women get no money from divorce, and divorce has to require ‘fault’ to be proven. Hence, divorce rates are very low. There are cases of women being abuses, but weighed against the fact that most kids grow up with 2 parents, the net benefit to society is still better than it is under the American system where everything revolves around keeping the woman maintained, children and father be damned.

    When children are involved, it should be very hard to get a divorce, and/or the party demanding one should pay a severe price. Only way to lower them greatly. Divorces with kids at home that is.

    But how can one get around the child support trojan horse of alimony, when a pre-nup cannot shield a man from this? Do you have ideas?

    No, I don’t. Basically I don’t.

    You can try to mandate true joint custody. The idea there is to basically strip out the wife supporting (alimony) part of child support. You’re gonna have to do the direct support for the kid at reasonable levels for your income but many / most professional type men would want to except perhaps in the case of a very early divorce with infants. In any even it’s way better. But courts don’t have to follow, even if there aren’t bad facts on the man’s side. It may influence them though. May. More likely won’t. Or only a smidgin.

    I don’t know anything about your Nevada trust idea. I doubt it would work. They’ll be able to get employer payroll records.

    I’m sure it wouldn’t re: child support. The courts would simply order garnishment of your wages pre any transfer anywhere. If you’re self employed you have more latitude generally but we’re also getting into fraud and also tax fraud territory. I’m not saying I’d be morally opposed to some of that re: feminist divorce law extractions but one needs to weigh the risks.

    Something else a prenup should do though is make her pay for her own legal expenses. If she doesn’t have the bucks, you’d have to front out of settlement money, but that’s what it should be, and advance. Same thing with support during the pendancy of the settlement/trial proceedings. This will tend to reign in her lawyers, which if you have bucks but aren’t really really rich, is a MAJOR issue. They’ll at least have to tell her about it. I.e the legal fees she racks up are really coming out of her pocket in the end. This only works with a prenup. Otherwise if she doesn’t have the ready cash, they will all be out of your pocket, including at the final tally.

    Also, under joint custody, that also prevents either ex-spouse from leaving that city, correct?

    It’s more likely the fact that the vast majority of French/Dutch women 17-40 were NOT sleeping the Germans during WWII.

    The only reasons you make these ridiculous claims about women is because you are a paranoid dork and because your overheated brain LOVES to think in verbal essentialisms. Almost everything is categorical with you.

    Sometimes you actually make interesting points on your site and here. Why can’t you make an effort to actually calm down and think about reality CRITICALLY instead of just using ideas to reinforce your paranoid obsessions.

    Start with the claim – ” Almost ALL French and Dutch women were sleeping with German officials, who ran after all most of France, and controlled economic necessities. Pretty much all French women were sleeping with the Germans.”

    Now test it critically against evidence from a reality you never experienced.

    1) Preface your statements with “Is it true that…?”

    2) Look for evidence and arguments to support the claim.

    3)….AND THIS IS THE KEY ONE – Look for evidence and arguments or alternative theories that CONTRADICT the claim.

    Imagine that your claims are like a small aircraft you are about to fly in. Do you want the designer/mechanic/pilot to just make their efforts WITHOUT testing the plane properly to make sure it can fly safely?

    You would want them to test it out more than a little bit. Test it and retest it to make sure it coordinates with reality properly.

    Which reminds me. Once, around when I was 19 (not quite two decades ago) I drove to the Virginia / Tennessee / Kentucky tristate area. Complete middle of nowhere.

    In the evening I came upon a strip club, which I entered, somewhat ill-at-ease. I was a bit nervous about the mythical “rednecks kicking my ass” but I had nothign to worry about, it turns out.

    Well, there sure were some dancers like Cigstache working the room. And they had happy customers, too. Me? I took a liking to a tall, thin woman in her late 20s or early 30s. Pretty face, with kindly grey eyes. Looked like the type who worked hard all her life. As did everyone else in that place.

    I had frequent lapdances with her. They cost only a dollar, and involved her merely leaning into me and kinda dancing between my legs, no genital contact. She has very nice, small firm breasts.

    I was a virginal (not literally) 19 year old, looking even younger than I was, and out of my element. She was popular with other patrons, so she’d come back to them, and then make her way back to me. For another $1 lapdance. It was mostly Country songs that I wasn’t familair with, and some Rock.

    At one point, I worked up my courage and asked her “please don’t be offended by my question, but woudl you mind coming to my motel later when you get off work?”

    She replied, very nicely in fact, with her Kentucky accent “I won’t come to your motel with you, but please be assured that I didn’t take yourt question with offense; I can tell you are a very decent young man.”

  645. Libby, I’m basing my statements on the various studies done on the Vichy regime, and Dutch occupation. Nearly all attractive women were entangled with the occupiers, which makes sense. Come on, there wasn’t a normal economy, and the occupiers, civil and military, had all the power. The occupation was not harsh either, as in the Eastern front.

    People had to eat. Obviously unattractive or older women were not involved. But let’s get real. Conquerors come in, run everything, and control all life’s essentials, everything is controlled and rationed, from how much butter you can buy in the store, to travel, to sugar, to pretty much everything.

    Collaboration in France and the Netherlands was extensive, in all walks of life, from intellectuals to remote farm peasants (who probably collaborated the least, being removed from urban life and with most of the necessities of living at hand).

    The shaving of the Prostitutes heads was and is a sore-spot for women, various Communist academics, and so on, who point out that most women in Vichy did in fact sleep with Nazi officials to gain money, supplies, protection, and so on, as did most of the Dutch women. They have their own motives for pointing this out (the inevitable corruptibility of the bourgeoisie I suppose) but there it is. It was well documented in letters to home from German soldiers and officials, German records, the Vichy Occupation records, and personal diaries of the time.

    One of the massive failures of the OSS and British Secret Service operations in Occupied Europe was sending in female operatives, on the theory that women could move around more with less attention. It was a disaster. Because first, nearly all women of their age (young, attractive) were the mistresses of various Nazi officials, and women who did NOT sleep with Germans stood out like a sore thumb. Secondly, they were betrayed often by women who noticed they (often native Frenchwomen sent in to perform espionage) did not exactly have enthusiastic attitudes about the occupiers. The women themselves, nearly all highly intelligent emigres, had no clue about the natures of their fellow Frenchwomen. Nearly all were captured, tortured, and murdered. Many of their betrayers were indeed the mistresses of the local Nazi officials who noticed them (as first competition, then spies). That’s for women sent in “cold” rather than networks that had been already rolled-up as the British did in their homeland.

    [The same record is true of the Channel Islands, where British women unreservedly surrendered to the Nazi occupiers. Something the British don’t like to talk about but nevertheless is true.]

    I shouldn’t have to explain the obvious to you:

    http://www.amazon.com/Politics-Everyday-Life-Vichy-France/dp/0521899443

    I would be shocked if most attractive women did not sleep with Germans, if nothing else to protect male relatives from being sent to forced-labor in Germany for munitions, or protection from the Milice. In fact, they did.

    Willard you’re naive, White Knighting, and totally unrealistic about Occupied Europe and France and the Netherlands in particular. Fact is — the Resistance was mostly Hollywood and French myth. Nearly everyone collaborated, in one form or another, and it’s understandable. I don’t blame women for doing what they had to in order to survive. but the legacy was unmistakable.

  646. Fastest way to get divorce rate down and thus eliminating a hell of a lot of childhood trauma would be for the father to get presumption of custody. As the women on this board have demonstrated, they generally have maternal instincts and will not want to be away from their kids. With presumption of father as custodial parent, most women (or at least a hell of a lot of them) will think twice before filing for divorce.

    All true. Would never happen, though.

    Even in societies where women get no money from the husband in the event of divorce, the kids still go with the mother (who then returns to her parents’ house).

    So the one element of biologically grounded tradition that works in their favor – kids stay with the mother – feminists use. Around this, they build their whole bullshit edifice of ‘the kids living standard must not go down’, which means the mother’s does not go down, which means the father’s goes down 80%.

  647. About the male revolt: It is here, just not ballyhooed.

    In my own family I have:

    1. Men who marry women who work at the same income level. Point: In a divorce, no need for alimony.

    2. Men who marry and refuse to have children.

    3. Men who refuse to marry and refuse to support their long time girlfriend.

    This all means no or few children. This means the death of my family. Too bad. But, that is the inevitable result of our system. I am learning Spanish and could easily adapt to Islam.

  649. By contrast, in Norway, with a more rural population less under the thumb of Germans, interaction and submission to the occupiers by their women was much, much less. Alone of the Western nations, Norway had an active and competent resistance movement capable of sabotaging, for example, German heavy water manufacture. Critical for their nuclear program. Terrain favored that, Norway is a bunch of small cities, lots of farms and villages spread out, lots of mountains and snow and skiing. Very rugged.

    Denmark is mostly flat and small, but (was) also rural. Less requirement to trade sex for food, which is what things amounted to in France and the Netherlands. There wasn’t much active armed resistance, but not much fraternization either.

  650. Are most people as stupid and historically ignorant as Willard Libby? That’s a depressing prospect. That for most, history began at breakfast.
    ———————
    Joel — Hispanic immigration is one sense parasitical, since it does not replace a failed system with a better one, but instead offers a culture and system even worse. You can learn all the Spanish you want, you won’t be La Raza. The Race. You can have all the Islam you want. You won’t be anything other than a follower unless you have tribal authority or create yourself a Big Man following like bin Laden or Zawahari.

    There is not a choice of good and better, but bad and even worse. Even with all the failures of the gender gap, Western Society is still a better deal than Islam or the failed society of say, Mexico.

    Agreed about Islam; not knocking it, but it’s not for Western Man. It’s a harsh, angly desert religion.

    Mexico? Fred Reed seems to like it there.

    In my case, I still believe in America. As much of an oligarchic shithole as it is turning into.

    We need to institute a 2 tiered marriage system.

    scenario #1–-all childless marriages are “no fault” can be dissolved at will by either party with no possibility of alimony, only splitting of jointly owned property, accounts, etc
    –marriages with children are immediately converted at law to fault-only for 18 years, with additional years tacked on for each child. cohabitating couples are converted to fault-only married upon establishing paternity.

    scenario #2–two actual tiers of marriage you can choose from–common no fault marriage and something like “covenant marriage”–covenant marriage would entail fault-only, mandated reconciliation period/counselling, with the children and any and all support monies going to the non vow breaking party, etc

    most important–in no case can a woman abandon her marriage for no fault and take the kids and get child support

    the sound of legs snapping shut all over the country would be deafening

    Sorry man, but that is wrong. This was changed in the late 19th century. It was a break with tradition. Then came the “tender years” doctrine when mommy is so soft and cuddly. Eventually comes the Fathers are wallets doctrine.

    Another thing is that there is no biological basis for the current state of affairs. The only thing the mother is needed for, biologically speaking, is giving birth. After that wet nurses have been used even if mom is still around.

    That is funny dana in all your situations there is still something about money. You must be a lawyer.

    Well in indo where there is no penalty no money transfer and the father gets the kids. They still have no problem getting married. They almost always do get married and do not just cohabitate.
