In The Manipulated Man I remember Vilar proposing wives should go along with the sex even if they don't feel like it. Anyone remembers in which chapter it was?

In R and Stoner R cases they have to worry about "sexual strategy" for they are trying to keep one women and do not want lose her. Or do not want to get divorced.

That's not bad in itself, neither does it invalidate their conclusions. As the case of the Alchemists illustrates, and as is a well-known educational practice, trying to solve an insoluble problem is a great way to discover hidden truths.

@tchower if this was an attempt to make an argument, you could really use some more practice in rhetoric.

As monitoring of the Covid-19 fatalities goes directly through the White House, the US reports deaths falling by ~50% in a day. Even better statistical achievement than China.

@Apollo Thetr is a long-standing battle between two philosophical currents, Stoicism vs Epicureanism. Epicureanism better fits the free man. Stoicism certainly helps when facing difficulties in life, but who wants that, in the first place?

@ships humans evolved to operate efficiently in close-knit bands. Although, even in there, nepotism is an issue, true meritocracy was relatively easy to achieve - and they did.

It was always about equality of opportunity, not outcome.

Now, what I think is the most interesting point in politics, is that sex is the ultimate resource - effectively, the only one, for men. "Inequality" arises from the efforts of those in power to push the others "off-side", taking them out of the game. That's what's behind "empowering women", it's really about disempowering competing men. Diminishing their opportunities. This led to today's shitshow, where even if you are upper-middle class you may get completely fucked up by a woman. In the sexual landscape, it is quite evident that the "system" is against the interests of the huge majority of men.

TRP is, imo, not a "movement" to change the system. It's mostly a hack, to win as much as you can.

@tb87670 I was actually hinting on how accurate Ellis is in describing upper-class dysfunctionality, not that Mary Trump writes fiction.

There is that theoretical possibility that someone is right-wing but still able to see through "their" leaders facade... But I've only seen it clearly manifest itself in Archwinger, so far. I miss the bastard.

Mary Trump's account of her family reads like a real-life Bret Easton Ellis story...

@INNASKILLZ2K20 there is a book about precisely that, somewhere. How the ride the tiger, or something.

@ships You might need to calibrate your perspective better. It's not "the top 1%". A few years back Roosh and Rollo suggested that only about 0.5% of men had sufficient sexual gratification. I agree. And things are getting even worse. Have you checked the facts this yeah? About 30% of young men haven't had sex for over a year.

Men are "resentful" because they have a wrong picture? Really? I'd say they are resentful because they are getting the right picture.

Also: you know, of course, that the surest way to "put yourself in a position of power" is on all four, offering your ass to the already powerful, no?
