I find it interesting that an out of shape Vin Diesel is ridiculed for his present physique, or that ‘Dad Bods’ are sardonically described as ‘sexy’ while the over-the-shoulder giggles ensue, but what I don’t expect is for these men to be held as a physical ideal in women’s estimate. There are no photographers, male or female, shooting artful nudes of overweight men, normal “real” men of professional accomplishment, or middle linemen for exclusive calendars. Firemen with rippling abs sell very well, but “real” men? Not so much.
However the difference is that men don’t expect women’s choices of what physically arouses them to shift in favor of their physiques based on expected societal shifts. In fact, we don’t even expect women not to laugh at a naked Seth Rogan or Jonah Hill. The automatic impression is to laugh at them because they don’t come close to women’s physical ideal, so the presumption of intent must be humor. Yet we are expected to perceive a naked Amy Schumer as “real’, “authentic”, “brave” and “stunning”, and to do so with genuflection, devoid of laughter and ridicule.
Stay in condition yellow. Condition Yellow is best described as “relaxed alert.” There’s no specific threat situation, but you have your head up and you’re taking in your surroundings with all your senses. Most people associate situational awareness with just visual stimulation, but you can also learn a lot about a particular scenario from sounds. This is especially true for active shootings. If you hear gunshots — or something that sounds an awful lot like gunshots — that should be a sign that you need to start immediately preparing to take action.
Though your senses are slightly heightened in Condition Yellow, it’s also important to stay relaxed. Staying relaxed ensures that you maintain an open focus, which allows you to take in more information about what’s going on around you. Research shows that when we get nervous or stressed, our attention narrows, causing us to concentrate on just a few things at a time. A narrow focus can therefore cause us to miss important details in our environment.
Bottom line: Don’t have your nose constantly in your smartphone and don’t zone out; rather, you should open your eyes, ears, and nose, and calmly and constantly scan your environment to take in what’s going on.
Ever since I started researching the OODA Loop, I’ve gained new insights in a whole host of areas. By knowing that the key to success in a violent confrontation is getting through your OODA Loop faster and resetting the bad guy’s Loop, whenever I’m out, I’m always “orienting” by thinking about what I would do if some bad dude suddenly appeared. I’ve taken to following General James Mattis’s advice to Marines: “Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.”
Understanding the OODA Loop has also helped me become more strategic about my business. Online publishing is a relatively new industry and the technology that supports it is always changing. To thrive, I need to stay current on the trends in my industry through vigilant observation, and then update my mental models regularly through effective orientation. (What’s that you say? Writing 7k word posts about things like the OODA Loop flies directly in the face of online publishing trends that favor the short sound bite? Ah, but you see I’m playing the long game (no pun intended) – I’m out to reset the entire internet’s OODA Loop. I’m just kidding. Or am I? Bwahahaha!)
Prisoners Of Ourselves is a compilation of lectures given by by Gunduz Vassaf, a Turkish man educated in America. His main thesis is that we accept invisible totalitarianism into our lives without realizing it. The standardization of culture, food, and consumer products all forces us into a mold, and what we may think of as creative expression is still within a model forced upon us under the guise of personal freedom. If you choose not to participate in this model, which is becoming increasingly impossible thanks to how it’s intertwined with consumerism, you’re ostracized and then exiled for not conforming.
It is NOT your job to determine whether these stats are valid. You can use any of the following statistics in your article:
One-in-four women are the victims of rape.
Over 25% claim to have been victims of sexual assault.
Rape is the most underreported crime in the world.
Studies have shown that fewer than 2% of rape accusations are deemed false.
Over 98% of rape accusations are true, according to researchers who have studied the issue.
You want to appear to authority. When possible write, “Studies have shown,” and “Research proves.” Don’t worry. No one will ask you for copies of those studies, and no one would read them even if provided them.
Applying these statistics to Stoya’s rape accusation against James Deen, you might write:
Refusing to believe a woman who claims she was raped has a 98% chance of being incorrect.
It’s both an act of moral cowardice and unreasonable to not believe Stoya.
I was a camp counselor this summer, and the next generation is worse than ours. These kids are being raised on so much organic, special snowflake bullshit that they’ll probably have a psychological breakdown the second someone tells them they’re not as perfect as they think they are. And it’s nauseating.
Newsflash: Not every single criticism is an attack on your character. Sometimes, you just suck. And people tell you SO THAT YOU CAN IMPROVE. NOT SO YOU CAN GO HOME SOBBING ABOUT HOW THE WORLD IS UNFAIR AND YOU’RE SUCH A VICTIM AND YOU’RE SO DEPRESSED NOW.
Students are increasingly seeking help for, and apparently having emotional crises over, problems of everyday life. Recent examples mentioned included a student who felt traumatized because her roommate had called her a “bitch” and two students who had sought counseling because they had seen a mouse in their off-campus apartment. The latter two also called the police, who kindly arrived and set a mousetrap for them.
Progressives only have one good trick, and men keep falling for it.
They keep calling you a coward, so that you’ll do or say whatever they want to prove that you are not a coward.
If they want you to accept a group of outsiders, they call you a xenophobe to dismiss any rational concerns you might have about the motivations of strangers. The only way to prove you don’t have an irrational fear of foreigners is to welcome them with open arms and without questions.
If you question the sanity of a man who can’t be “who he really is” until someone surgically removes his dick, they call you a transphobe. The only way to prove you’re not afraid of trannies is to agree that transsexuals are not only sane, but heroic, and should be welcomed into any women’s restroom.
If you reject any demand made by any woman, you’re “just afraid of a strong woman.” This accusation has been repeated so many times that a substantial portion of the population actually seems to believe that men are at the very core of their being constitutionally terrified by any woman with “attitude.” There is probably some truth to this, but only to the extent that men would rather avoid the frustrating reality that no matter how strong a woman claims to be or what she says, no man or woman on earth will ever forgive a man for knocking her the fuck out. To prove they are not afraid of women, men end up giving women whatever they want, because they can’t stand up to women the way they stand up to each other.

Throughout the Western world, there are major social and financial risks associated with being racist or being perceived as a racist or being associated with racists. In mainstream social circles, you’ll be ostracized. If you’re a celebrity, your career will be over. If you apologize, no one will believe you and they’ll talk about it for the rest of your life. Mainstream politicians call each other racists and compete to outdo each other in the feel-good diversity and token-pimping department. If you’re an employee, being found out as a racist can make you virtually unemployable in the age of search engines. If you have a business, you may be boycotted, and other businesses may cancel your accounts to avoid associating with you. If you’re an academic, you will be attacked in the media and you may even lose your job for coming to a conclusion that seems racist, whether it is true or not. In Europe, you can be arrested for writing or saying something openly racist or “xenophobic.” Saying something that could be perceived as racist or in any way derogatory about another group, whether it is true or not, actually takes courage. Being a “racist” or a “xenophobe” actually takes balls.
There are no social, financial or legal penalties for saying that you are against racism or xenophobia. None. Self-proclaimed “anti-facists” who want to get a danger boner “fighting racism” actually have to hunt down accused racists and harass them in the street, hoping for some sort of scuffle. And they when they do it, they do it knowing that they’ll be absolved of any potential legal hassle by the lawyers who will either volunteer to “fight racism” in court for them pro bono or be paid by any number of well-funded and well-established anti-racist activist organizations.
It takes absolutely no courage to say you’re against racism or xenophobia because there are absolutely no risks. Anti-racism, orchestrated integration, multiculturalism, pro-immigration, anti-xenophobia, anti-profiling, anti-stereotyping, “diversity is our strength”… these are all establishment ideas and default positions that are socially rewarded and affirmed. Risks only result from challenging these ideas in some way or other.
So who’s really afraid?
“Official” history is written by the conquerors, so that they can prevent the masses of people from discovering the true causes of their past failures that lead to their historical defeat, so that they can continue to support and buy into the status quo of cyclical insanity that is our deliberately designed modern society.
And just what constitutes this cycle of insanity? Debase the currency, debauch the culture and corrupt the common morality to destroy the family and invite voluminous immigration of foreigners into every corner of the land to dispossess the citizenry of their birthright. Rinse and repeat as many times as necessary until the Global Tyranny is achieved. (Side note: I have sympathies for the rising sentiment of White Nationalist neo-reaction on teh Interwebz and in teh MAndrosphere, despite my minority heritage, as everything they are trying to prevent happening to their race, has already happened to those of us of Native Hawaiian descent. We’ve been conquered, marginalized in our own homeland and miscegenated into near extinction. THEY got the same plans for all you crackers.)
