The red pill at it's most basic level, like the common self interest that men come here for, is "how does an inexperienced young man lose his virginity (if he hasn't already), then go about sleeping with as many women as his dick desires." (I assume you know that already)
That being said this website trp.red, specifically GLOgang, is a subculture within the "general internet" culture that was born on Reddit/other manospheresk websites predating r/theredpill and it/he professes to be the elite/thought leaders of it. So from where I type, you came here seeking something (IDK what that is, can't read your mind unfortunately), and you willingly came into the community and publicly renounced the person who organized it.
What the actual fuck did you expect? There's a certain level of ideological conformism in all groups otherwise there wouldn't be a coherent group anywhere on the face of the Earth, this one has two simple but not easy "tenets" lift heavy weights and read difficult books to literally expand your mind and body, you know you don't have to be here or conform to the standards (because obviously you aren't). Just stop being such a fag about is ffs.Read More
@Caldero Just curious but I've heard based on the industrialization of farming (at least in America) that the natural vitamins and minerals in the soils have become steadily depleted resulting in less nutritious food. But I do see your point of create a need there by making an artificial demand that never existed before as a way entire industries come to life.
Like I take a daily vitamin in part to know I'm getting a lot of what the government tells us humans are supposed to consume regularly, but on the flip side of this fact I realized it is in part me being lazy so I don't have to think about the different foods I would have to be eating to get those nutrients. I also agree with your sentiment that foods that have a lot of soy added to them and other chemicals that are similar to estrogen are added to processed foods reducing the testosterone in the populace. But (and I only did a simple google search) your posit that "ordinary simple white rice instead of brown rice" isn't true, not sure about pasta I'd assume it would depend on if it was whole grain or more processed.Read More
@destraht As someone currently in his mid 20's that's really where I am at. I've tried having conversations with my family and friends about the perceived and actual wrongs in the world, and as soon as I don't have the perfect solution they would spew venom at me for shattering their illusions. Plato's cave is too real.
I'm coming to the conclusion that only certain people who are open to thinking in what normies would consider radical and I would just call different are the ones I want to associate with, it seems to be an unfortunate but valid part of the human experience, and to ignore the power of association is just foolish as you know.
Yes, this is effectively the condensed problem with American politics. Lazy potential voters don't turn out, turnouts in primaries skew very old and party-line voters, and overall participation is mostly by massively uninformed voters esp. at the state levels. The ultra-majority of Americans cannot name more than 1 member of their state congress.
@itiswr1tten But primaries and caucuses are only for the registered voters of the affiliated parties though, so are only 30% of those people even participating in their parties selection process? If so that is terrible, I sorta wish a 3rd party option was viable but that's a pipe dream for sure.
Voter turnout in the United States fluctuates in national elections. In recent elections, about 60% of the voting eligible population votes during presidential election years, and about 40% votes during midterm elections. Turnout is lower for odd year, primary and local elections. 2018 turnout was the highest midterm turnout on record at 49.6%.
Primaries, which actually put the candidate up for election, usually have sub 30% turnout which is fucking terrible.
