His presentation may not have been the best and if he doesn't get traction then so be it. The reason I offered to cross-post it to the official channel was for the following reasons:
I need to get out in front of people trying to piggyback on the official channel going public thereby diluting the brand. If I can keep people's focus centered on a single channel/focal point, we'll be much better off in the long-run.
The content of his video was a decent take on stoicism from a philosophical/classical approach. It's not for everyone and that's okay. And I tried to clean up the audio best I could and added the background music to help fill dead spots.
- I'm open to giving people a shot, within reason, of having their own show on the channel. It's not unlike what TRP.RED has done for allowing people to host their own podcasts on the platform. If their show ends up adding value and being in line with our mission, then it'll continue in an officially sanctioned capacity.
Once things shake out and we find our voice with the channel things will largely sort themselves out on their own with who would even want to be associated with us (and vice versa).Read More
@jwayne the Manosphere is inhabited by Fetishists, which is to say people who see symptoms and not underlying causes.
How many times have you seen the Manosphere talk about economic factors, deindustrialization and NAFTA as underlying causes? Never they look at symptoms band only symptoms.
The Manosphere is also populated by perverts who have a castration fantasy. They like to jerk off to the all powerful woman meme, included below.
@bloodexorcist I disagree that chess is useless. It's a strong cerebral challenge. While there is some element of psyching out one's opponent to any competitive sport, I think @TheStoicCrane oversells the frame and dominance aspects a bit.
Anyone who thinks it's a pussy game, are you up for a round of Chessboxing?
buy a pack of N95 respirators. You can find them in many hardware stores. N95 is the over-ear that covers nose and mouth. N95 is a standard, not a brand or type. Just describes the level of particulate matter excluded from the breathing apparatus
