Welcome to the public square. This is our welcoming tribe dedicated to introducing yourself, meeting new people, and learning about new tribes.
I don't entirely agree.
I agree that sex is important, and some guys definitely seek power because it wins women.
But to say 'men are drawn to power because it is an aphrodisiac for women' implies that is the one general cause for seeking power.
You're alternative is seeking for power which is 'abnormal'.
So the logic you're presenting is to 'to be normal, seek power so it wins the resource of sex'.
I disagree this is the 'normal' reason to pursue power.
I seek elements of power in my work. I have huge influence and power with clients. Decisions they make on my suggestion can make it break their lives.
I have power to make my own decisions which could effect their lives significantly.
I aspire to move further up in the organisation to have more power over staff, bring things into our program that I want and my ultimate aspiration is to say 'I have power to pretty much run things top down in the way I see fit and totally offer a vision of program that will change people's future'.
I do NOT seek that for sex. Am I aware it builds attraction for some women? Yes, but it isn't the goal, or aim.
I want that power, because I literally want people to utterly and absolutely thrive and have the chances I had.
I also love the personal growth my work gives me, and want more power so I continue to grow.
I also want the intellectual and creative outlet of creating my own programs.
What I'm getting at is there can be many motivations and end results from having power other than sex, which are very normal.
We often get told we do everything for our dick
I know what you mean, and I've had women actually be surprised that I am genuinely in pursuit of power for reasons other than fucking.
It's not the only normal causation for seeking power.Read More
Hitler was nowhere near normal. Exterminating Jews was his "thing".
What I'm getting at is that for a normal guy, getting sex is necessary, and a prerequisite to enjoying the "shit load" of stuff life has to offer.
Men are drawn to power because power is an aphrodisiac for women. For some men, power gets detached, aquires a life of its own, and devours the man himself. That is the "ab-normal" I'm hinting at. The power-lust of the "elites". It has brought such an imbalance in the world, it doesn't make sense anymore.
@adam-l ok, now I see your point.
Yes, it's one of the saddest things in the world to see a girl's private msg on social media and see a plethora of guys going ga ga over the idea of sex or an attractive girl.
I want to reach out and slap those guys
When talking about how the world works, sex, for men, is so important that overshadows anything else.
You are looking at it from the personal perspective. Of course, once you have enough, sex is no longer an issue.
But there are whole empires built on controlling sex. Older empires did it explicitly, e.g. assigning a specific number of women to each state official. Today's system is more implicit. They've found they can maintain a facade of liberalism around sex, while assigning women as its gatekeepers. They have proven to be mighty effective - and when they are not, ... "it was rape", and the legal system and the media take over.
Men will do crazy things for sex. They will even do such a soul-crushing thing as work for it. That's what capitalism is based on.
@adam-l why are you being so binary?
Fuck off with 'sex is the only resource'.
It's A resource. Is it important? Yes. Is the only thing? No.
Don't confuse people believing sex is the be all and end all with it being the only resource.
It might be to sexless beta boys who want to feel like they are pursuing something really important.
Have you ever had enough sex that it actually becomes boring and uninteresting?
This is one of the problems of evo psyche and scientism. Everything gets reduced down to the bare biological workings.
It just sounds like you're pedestalizing the pussy and sex.
@Osiris "We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States," West tweeted, along with the hashtag #2020VISION.
Imagine Kanye debating Trump. He even got Elon musk's support. "2020 VISION" ffs.
