Ever been so Beta because you didn’t know what to do that you decided to give the silent treatment for 20 years? This guy did.
Imagine losing 20 years of your irreplaceable experiences because you couldn’t control your emotions and let them get the better of you. The main thing this guy mastered was discipline in given the silent treatment. What a wast.
Being masculine means being in control of your emotions, not them in control of you. A beta male never reaches his potential is controlled by his emotions and acts accordingly. A masculine man is in control uses his emotions to achieve his goals. As in the words of Rollo Tomassi, kill the beta in you before it kills you.
Once upon a time cycling was a popular activity in my village and many people had their own bike. Being villagers many weren’t rich but the cyclists among us invested a lot into lovingly maintaining and upgrading our own bikes. While there were some douchebag cyclists who would cycle any way they saw fit and parked everywhere by and large there was a polite and courteous cycling culture.
There were also a few village bicycles- bikes that those who didn’t have one for various reasons to share for short distance rides. Those were beaters that people would have their fun with and after leave exposed to the elements. While many of them started out pristine and shiny from the shop they soon became worn out, damaged and abandoned.
The cyclists in our village would shake our head as we saw these rusty abandoned bicycles lying around, overgrown by grass. Sometimes someone might rescue one and restore to original condition with much TLC but that was difficult and expensive due to the condition of the bikes. Sometimes they were just too damaged to restore. While sad these shared bikes were the minority and most people were responsible cyclists with their own lovingly maintained bicycles.
Then the bike share came.
It started first as a trickle- a shared bike parked haphazardly outside a house there, another lying on it’s side in the grass, signs that things were about to change. They were often ridden by people who barely had any idea how to cycle, and they would often bring in more bikes and leave them where they found them. These were different from the village bicycles everyone was used to which were considered one off anomalies.
These were village bicycles on a large scale.
The identical bikes starting to clog up the bike stands and spill over onto the streets and spread everywhere. It wasn’t long before there were so many that just about anyone could have access to a bicycle at the drop of a hat. Some said this was a revolution in cycling, cycling would no longer be the reserve of bicycle owners, it would truly be for anyone, anytime, anywhere.
But deep down everyone had their reservations. The people who used the shared bikes weren’t cyclists in the traditional sense of the word, they just knew how to ride a bike and didn’t care much for one beyond it getting them from point A to B. Their relationship with the bicycle ends the moment the trip did. They knew little about how to cycle safely, what was proper etiquette, or how to maintain and keep bicycles in good working order. The shared bikes were just expendable, disposable tools, discarded after they were used, abandoned to the elements for newer, fresher models. No one could trust them to work properly, so parts were often stolen just in case and bikes missing parts were left abandoned.
They were everywhere. Proper cyclists could no longer park their bicycles due to the shared bikes clogging up racks, nor could they enjoy a safe and leisurely ride due to the sheer number of bad riders around. It was a mess. We wondered if this new state of affairs really improved cycling. Some had argued that the shared bike would increase the number of committed cyclists who would go on to get their own bikes and learn the ropes on proper cycling but what seemed to have happened instead is that the shared biked simply made people start to treat bicycles as disposable objects and bad cycling as acceptable. Some committed cyclists gave up entirely stop cycling, the experience just wasn’t the same anymore.
My cousin came down for a visit during Chinese new year and remarked on how messy and dangerous our village was from all the shared bikes. I told her that things weren’t that way before and our village used to have a good cycling culture. Something had changed from all this, people no longer viewed cycling as an endeavour where one would lovingly maintain a machine that would take him on all sorts of adventures. Instead cycling had been turned to a series of short-term anonymous casual encounters with bicycles one couldn’t care less about. Abandoned the moment there was another identical, but newer bike available.
The village bicycle, and the village bicycle way of riding had become what cycling is in our village.
These are dangerous times to be a masculine man, if you have been following the progressive narrative lately you would have seen the relentless assaults on traditional masculinity repeated ad nauseam everywhere.
Your ideological opponents want nothing but the destruction of that you value. Your culture, your values, your ideas, your thought, your freedom. Everything will be subsumed to the progressive agenda. They have set their values as the default way of thinking in the mainstream and they are always looking for people like us for their two minutes of hate.
To stand fast you need a band of brothers. A group of trusted friends that you can rely on absolutely. Men of character, men of courage and integrity. Men who know how still to be men.
Such men are hard to come by, but they are out there. Social insurgents like you and me, working quietly against the rising tide of the progressive agenda and freeing men with the hard truth of Red Pill. Look around you on message boards, in your work place, on social media. Red Pill men are everywhere, yes even here in Singapore.
As Talon has predicted, the movement is growing, and our ideological opponents know this, which is why they have redoubled their efforts to spread their agenda.
The race is on so what are you waiting for?
Go out there and find your band of brothers.
Talon’s deep recce mission into the progressive paces of Singapore started a few months back when he started working in an industry that put him straight within the SJW scene in the nation. The regressives he interact with think he is just another average unwoke Singaporean and he uses that to bait them into revealing their ideologies, strategies and long term objectives. The bounty has been good.
Now he tells you what you as a Red Pill masculine man need to do to fight regressive infiltration in Singapore.
Most of you who are somewhat media-savvy would have been aware of the latest progressive moral panic sparked off by some Hollywood liberals that turned out to be sexual predators.
To say that this is a moral panic is somewhat of an understatement, it is more of a witch hunt with a flaming bandwagon where feminists, reeling from the various setbacks of the past year with the shitlord uprising sparked off by the weakening liberal narrative, have been scrambling head over heels to regain the capitalise on- basically by using it as an memetic weapon to regain the initiative.
The strategy is simple: use the moral panic to get as many women on board their cause as possible via an all-encompassing meme that conflates all negative interactions with men as sexual victimisation, and use that to force in their other ideological claims along with demands that things be changed to better suit them.
It won’t work in the long game of course, feminism is now the empress without clothes and more people are seeing it each day as the various absurdities of feminism grow more egregious, in part fuelled by increasing Red Pill awareness. However this does not preclude the reality that the #metoo moral panic remains a potent short term weapon in the regressive arsenal.
They seek a state of affairs where feminism holds all the cards holding the power to arbitrarily define and accuse men of sexual misconduct, having the power to completely destroy everything a man has worked for in reputation, career and social connections on the mere power of an accusation, regardless of merit. As a Red Pill man you need to know how to defend yourself from this latest feminist memetic weapon.
Naturally #metoo was as attractive to local feminists as garbage is to flies, it didn’t take long for all my millennial feminist coworkers to start sharing their various #metoo experiences, most of them largely revolving around unpleasant encounters with creepy beta men or loosely defined street harassment that involved men staring or making them feel unsafe.
Undoubtedly many of the accounts were embellished for dramatic effect, being the feminists that they are (remember SJWs always lie), and capped off with demands to take the one-sided stories of many of the #metoo posts as gospel truth.
It didn’t take long for the #metoo posts to devolve into social media demands that men take action about it, which in their minds meant becoming grovelling feminists allies and “improving” themselves. Some of the beta men took the bait, and a couple of manginas and white knights saw it as a chance to raise their near-zero chance of attracting women by proving they were “better” men.
All in all it was a pretty good team-bonding virtue signalling experience for the sisterhood at my workplace, and they probably felt that their feminism was energised by the tribal belief in their shared victimisation.
The various ideological problems with #metoo have been covered in many manosphere and mainstream articles, so I won’t reinvent the wheel here. What I am going to talk about is the implications it has for men here, and what Red Pill men should do about it.
Fortunately Singapore hasn’t gone full libetard the way of the west yet, although it is gradually shifting that way and it doesn’t help that the incumbent government is starting to humour regressives, probably as way of staying relevant to the younger crowd.
Built on pragmatism, Singapore is naturally SJW-resistant, meaning the #metoo hash was largely trending among the english educated liberal demographics, which are (still) a minority. Nevertheless we are seeing a rise of local liberal online publications that present progressive shibboleths as if they are majority opinion.
The real battle for Singapore is not over the present, but the future. Never look at the present and think that you are safe or things aren’t so bad yet. Remember that in times of abundance feel-good progressive ideologies will progress as there are less penalties for entertaining bad ideas.
So while the social impact of #metoo is limited to local liberals making noise to get on the bandwagon and some online progressive media outlets covering it, one can only expect the importation of SJW moral panics to become increasingly common in the future. The people in my workplace certainly hope to make this a reality.
The main use of #metoo for the local Red Pill man is in it being a sounding board and litmus test for just how far along the taint of progressiveness as crept in his social circle. The way someone shares a #metoo provides useful intelligence on how radically left they are.
While a good deal of the #metoo posts are just shared as people jumping on the bandwagon of an internet trend, it is also used by many local progressives to virtue signal. Look out for signs such as the use of SJW buzzwords and long polemics involving progressive gender dogma. These are useful in knowing the disposition of your enemy and how they think. Even the way casual bandwagoners share a #metoo can provide you insight into how far along they are in accepting progressive dogma as the mainstream moral standard of behaviour.
All this information is useful for the Red Pill insurgent, it allows you to know who your enemy is and where they are. It allows you to also locate potential recruits and allies, plan accordingly. Be on the look out for those who express scepticism and criticism of #metoo, more so if they drop a nugget or two of subtle Red Pill truths in there. They are possibly fellow social insurgents.
Remember in the new battle grounds of the culture war you are surrounded and outnumbered. Your enemy currently has the advantage in that they have gotten their dogma to be recognised as the de facto moral authority and standard, and are ever pushing things their way in small steps. You are also outnumbered by the large number of Blue Pillers who go long with the enemy without knowing that they are actually acting against their interests.
However know that you have the Red Pill knowledge on your side along with the antifragility and flexibility of an insurgent force that can fade into the background and choose it’s time and place of battle. Use your enemies tools for your own means to gather intelligence and locate allies.
The culture war is already on for the Singapore narrative, and you need to fight with every tactic that you know. The only other choice is surrender.
Talon has been on a deep recce mission investigating local SJW spaces over the past few months, hence the lack of updates here due to the need to maintain cover and not give the other side any indication that they are being observed, but now he’s back and ready to bring more local manospherian writing to the fore.
Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you would have known by now that the creeping forces of progressiveness have been working hard to expand their foothold in the social and cultural spaces of Singapore over the past few years.
The progressive enemy is relentless and they will not stop until they achieve their goals, and then more. It is the job of every social insurgent to meet them at every front to make sure that they do not operate unopposed.
We have all seen the results of a culture war that is allowed to go generally unopposed to way of the left in America- a fractured nation that grows increasingly fractured over time as the war for it’s soul rages unabated. Don’t mistake the election of Trump as a decisive victory for traditional America, he is just a blade forged in defiance of destiny to buy the American people a bit more time to save themselves.
We have all seen the insanity of regressiveness come full tilt in many of the European nations- who now have become so poisoned by it they lack any sort of self-belief in their own nations and culture, preferring to see it subsumed under a flood of unhindered immigration. We’ve seen how they crack down on people speaking out against this insanity while closing a blind eye to crimes committed against them by outsiders in the name of preserving multiculturalism.
We have seen how the slippery slope is no fallacy at all with the regressive left, how now transgenderism mania is in full bloom where injecting children with hormones and puberty blockers in the name of ideology is trendy. We’ve seen how the idea of the traditional family is being derided and erased for the progressive alternatives over the past decades.
We’ve seen how these regressive ideologies are starting to plant themselves all over Asia and push into these traditional soceities.
Now ask yourself if you want this madness to take over Singapore, a place that operates on thin social, economic and cultural margins. A place where we don’t have the luxury of resting on our laurels to entertain and absorb very bad ideas.
No? Then meet the progressive enemy at all fronts, at all times. Never back down. Never give up. The culture war is already here and you will have to fight it if you want to save your culture.
Even the rabidly regressive ideologues at Marvel who have spent the last 3 years denouncing pissed-off fans rejecting their shoving of SJW values down everyone’s throats are admitting that they have a bottom-line problem:
Reading between the lines of the signals from Marvel, it seems the company is pulling back on its push for greater representation and diversity in their titles and pursuing a strategy similar to what DC Comics dubbed “meat and potatoes” before their DC Rebirth relaunch.
A lot of people scoffed at Bleeding Cool’s reports as spin or rumormongering, but in a recent interview with ICv2, Marvel VP of Sales David Gabriel is blunt with his assessment of a Marvel sales slump that began last October. The reason given by Gabriel: people are “turning their noses up” at diversity.
-No, I think so. I don’t know if those customers with the tastes that had been around for three years really supporting nearly anything that we would try, anything that we would attempt, any of the new characters we brought up, either they weren’t shopping in that time period, or maybe like you said their tastes have changed.
There was definitely a sort of nose-turning at the things that we had been doing successfully for the past three years, no longer viable. We saw that, and that’s what we had to react to. Yes, it’s all of that.
People just aren’t drinking their Kool aid and buying the bullshit, more so nowadays when liberal dogmas are getting torn down around their ears everywhere. The emperor is naked and even the most rabid of SJW writers in Marvel’s lineup can’t deny it. It’s hard for anybody, much less the ever-increasing number of Red Pills to see output like the following as anything but ham-fisted SJW rubbish:
The only thing really accurate to real life about this picture is the constantly offended scowl of Miss Fempowered
Tone deaf lazy writing that assumes your readership see these concepts in the same negative light tends to be bad for your bottom line.
Subtle, that’s some high class prose making an eloquent argument for progressive dogma on gender right there
The writers probably didn’t realise that most people ending up rooting for their strawmen caricatures of non-progressives.
Nice shoutout to feminism here, too bad feminists haven’t really been buying the books.
The is why any organisation with some semblance of common sense needs to be aware of the social justice snake oil salesmen offering to make some progressive
deforms reforms around their business model. These people are ideologues, they are in the game to bend things to their twisted religion, not to help you.
You can’t make this stuff up.
Maybe there’s a reason why there appears to be a lack of copypasta progressive memes from the west among progressives here of late, things are getting so unhinged over there that even SJWs here are thinking twice about trying this out.
Sometimes stuff like this makes me hope that one of our local liberals actually tries pull this off, it’s certainly popcorn worthy material. I do happen to know some self-professed male feminists that might actually take this seriously, one can hope.
An article published by the Straits Times regarding local firms putting money into Pink Dot 2017 provides some insight into the current shibboleths in circulation within the liberal community in Singapore. While the current state of LGBT affairs and Pink Dot is something Talon does have a fair bit to write on that is for another post. What I am going to address here is how a quick look at the press statements of the supporting organisations quickly ticks off the checkboxes of terms liberals are fond of using:
Another sponsor is TV production company Hoods Inc. Its co-founder Bratina Tay, 42, said: “We believe in equality and we do not believe in discrimination. We’re not imposing our beliefs on other people; it’s just what we believe in. If this helps to bring awareness to the public, we are happy to do so.”
Digital agency Xpointo Media contributed $5,000. Its managing director, Ms Kathy Teo, 45, said: “Diversity and inclusion are important values to our company. Broadcasting our commitment to these values is good for business.”
Shibboleths, a shorthand term for the commonly repeated terms, ideas and beliefs within a community, are a good way of sizing up the idealogical stances of people around you. You should be especially alert if you hear someone dropping them at a good rate. At the rate these common liberal shibboleths were being dropped in the quotes, one can get a good picture of the probable idealogical stances of these people beyond just putting money for Pink Dot.
The terms commonly tagged to liberal Shibboleths aren’t merely words, they are refined expressions of the ideology they come from and carry a lot of baggage. When a progressive uses terms like “equality”, “discrimination”, “awareness”,”diversity” or “inclusion”, they don’t mean it in a way that people commonly understand them, but rather the way that progressives do.
The trick is to convince everyone that it is the progressive definition of the term, with all it’s associated progressive ideological baggage, is the one that everyone should go by. If not subjected to Red Pill resistance, the redefinition of these terms to come under the regressive agenda is all but inevitable.
You see it everywhere in how terms like “racism” and “privilege” have been somewhat successfully subverted by regressives to the advantage of their ideologies. Language is a powerful tool and the one who controls the definition of words holds the power.
As Red Pill social insurgents who can see through the regressive liberal delusions, shibboleths are useful as it allows you to quickly sound off and size up the people you interact with and gain intel on what ideologies they subscribe to as well as the level of their commitment to cause.
A person dropping one or two shibboleths occasionally is probably just your run of the mill Blue Pill who has had exposure to liberal ideas in common media and has has a layperson’s understanding of it, and might even prove a good prospect for you to plant the seed of Red Pill doubt in them by gently cracking these ideas with them in casual conversation. The ones dropping multiple shibboleths repeatedly almost all the time are probably not casuals, and are people you certainly need to be careful around.
As always, be careful in letting your own shibboleths slip when talking to non-Red Pills. If possible, find new ways of presenting Red Pill ideas without resorting to cliches or terms that are in common use within the Manosphere.
This serves several purposes- it helps you to maintain cover as a social insurgent, it prevents people who have been programmed by mainstream bluepill thought from being triggered at the mere mention of Red Pill terms, and crucially, also allows you to approach your own ideas from new angles to find new memetic combinations to strike out in your insurgency against the regressive invasion.
Understanding shibboleths and using them to maximal effect for your Red-Pill insurgency to is a crucial skill. Master not just your own memes, but that of your enemy’s as well.
Wilful ignorance of proportion in feminist dogma is nothing that Red Pills don’t already know, but things like this are good to take note of now and then to realise that no matter what they say, if you have an XY chromosome they are not on your side.
Your problems are invisible to them, and worse they expect disproportionate attention to their issues even when it is clear that you take the lion’s share of the shit-sandwich.
Keep this in mind the next time your stronk fierce feminist friend attempts to beat everyone over the head with how women are the ultimate over 9000 oppressed class, and nuke her attempts to guilt trip everyone by calmly pointing out it’s quite apparent she is only seeing what she wants to see. Nuggets of truth like this are also good for gradually unplugging your blue pill friends.
