The Problems With Singaporean Men

featured-4

Now Talon has devoted a lot of digital ink here to debunking the myths that mainstream feminism has put out to take advantage of hapless Betas as well as mercilessly torn down the idealistic Blue Pill pedestals to let them see women in a more realistic light.

All this is necessary and needed as Red Pill knowledge is not relatively common here and addressing the most obvious and damaging false Blue Pill ideas out there is of priority. The deck is stacked against you if you are a Singaporean Asian dude, and that’s the way it is and is going to be.

Talon is not here to sugar coat the truth for you, but you tell it to you as it is.

However it is not enough that one sees the external factors causing the problems but the internal ones as well. Gaining Red Pill knowledge exposing the lies that the Blue Pill mainstream try to sell to you to put you under their thrall is easy enough, but realising that Red Pill truth judges you just as harshly is something that many Betas trying to unplug often do not get.

The internal is just as important as the external, and in many cases more so. I have seen many a man who was aware of external Red Pill realities such as the inevitable hypergamy of women and the lies of progressive culture, but yet at the same time not apply any of those Red Pill retrospection to themselves, remaining as hapless a Beta as they were before, except this time more bitter and insular and blaming the world for everything.

This is from where you most stunted MGTOW and hysterical MRAs are born. Without a realisation that one needs to improve themselves in light of the truth, seeing Red Pill truths in the outside world will only lead to bitterness and paralysis.

Which is why I will sometimes need to find some time to address the common personal failings of Singaporean men, and while some of these are due to ingesting Blue Pill perspectives and getting the wool pulled over their eyes by feminism and progressive lies, a good part of these failings are due to poor personal choices, bad attitudes, entitlement, and sheer stubbornness.

So without further ado, let’s start:


1. Beta Lack of Backbone
hqdefault1

This is a relatively common problem with Singaporean men- they often lack the balls to stand up for themselves when they should. Yes being asians we come from a high-context collectivist culture where we value harmony and compliance more than the low-context Ang Mohs who just speak their minds but one needs to know the difference between being the strong silent type and the kind that just takes whatever life gives you up the ass.

This lack of backbone means that Singaporean men often back down from challenges and roll over to show their belly the moment they are faced with something threatening. Instead of confronting the threat like an Alpha would or using social jiu-jitsu to disarm it like a Sigma, the hapless Singaporean beta male will just submit even if it means his humiliation.

The lack of backbone and over-compliance renders Singaporean men unattractive.

2. Excessive Complaining
maxresdefault1

Complaining is a Singaporean past time, we just love to bitch about everything.

There’s a problem with that, a bitching man is extremely unattractive. For some reason a good deal of Singaporean men think that complaining as loudly about something as possible helps things. It does not. People expect men to solve problems, not sit around flapping their gums and making a din about why everything sucks. All you are demonstrating is your powerlessness, lack of emotional control, and inability to get your shit together. Needless to say, all these are turnoffs.

If you want to be the mysterious strong silent type, which coincidently is rather attractive, learn not to complain about everything and keep them to a minimum.

3. Poor Physical Fitnesspioneer-batch-of-ns-enlistees

For a good deal of Singaporean guys the only experience they have with physical training is when the SAF gets them off their ass and forces them to take IPPT. By and large I notice a good deal seem content to get by in life without paying much attention to their personal physical prowess, getting fat and obese or scrawny with poor muscle tone.

And these often are the dudes who wonder why girls don’t find them attractive, they seem to think niceguy spam will overpower their rather obvious and voluntary physical inaptitude.

Not taking care of your body advertises low standards for yourself and consequently, low status. Many Singaporean men for some reason, don’t get this fundamental reason or have convinced themselves it doesn’t matter because “The One” will see them for who they truly are inside. Bullshit.

One of the first Red Pill habits you learn is to get yourself in shape to the best of your ability. You don’t need to be Schwarzenegger but you should at least be able to competent at the basic lifts and have a regular lifting schedule.

Remember as an Asian Singaporean man you are already at a disadvantage, you are working against stereotypes that have been built up over years of doing masculinity wrong. An Ang Moh can afford to get fat or remain scrawny and still stand a fair chance of pulling an SPG by taking advantage of Pinkerton Syndrome. You on the other hand have to work a lot harder just to be in the game.

4. Poor Groomingchronicwriter-nose-picker

Very common among Singaporean men, we just dress in whatever suits us and being in the tropics that often means shorts and slippers. Even Talon is guilty of this sometimes (but his Sigma charisma helps) when he is lazy but tries not to make a habit of it.

Take some effort to dress decently, you don’t need to be a metrosexual (in fact you should avoid that entirely) but you need to learn how to dress like a man.

The suit often makes the man, invest a little in what you wear, and combined with good physical fitness this will elevate your ranking in the Dating Marketplace.

5. Nice Guy Game
yw2iuh1

I can’t count how many times I’ve seen this with local men, who think they can win their way into a woman’s heart by inserting as many kindness coins as possible until she finally agrees to be a girlfriend. This unfortunately, seems to be the default paradigm most Singaporean guys have.

I am not saying that you shouldn’t be nice to women who are important to you, but realise there is a difference between being a good man who is kind because he chooses to and a man who has no options but to be nice because that’s his only value proposition.

Most Singaporean men are the latter, and the instantly triggers the “low status” detector in women.

6. Entitlementgilbert-goh-rejected

Princess syndrome is a real problem with Singaporean girls, but the men aren’t too far behind in the entitlement department as well. This can be most seen along with point number 2 when they make a lot of noise about how serving National Service somehow entitles them to loyalty from girlfriend and for local women to find them attractive, as well as how the state owes them good jobs and housing for doing so.

An entitled guy who has not earned the right to make these demands is unattractive. Nobody wants to be around a man who thinks the whole world owes him everything on a platter just because he got conscripted.

If you want something, go out and put some effort into it and get that shit done.

7. Deliberate Bitter Helplessnessquote-men-can-such-the-heady-juice-of-exalted-self-importance-from-the-bitter-weed-of-failure-failures-david-herbert-lawrence-284369

I’ve saved this for last because this is one of the biggest problems I see with local men- that of deliberately and wilfully forestalling self-improvement, preferring to bitterly complain about how Singapore has given them the shaft and how local women are disloyal entitled SPG princesses instead of taking a cold hard look at themselves to see what bits they could improve in themselves.

This is the antithesis of what the Red Pill teaches us about masculinity and represents a feminine way of dealing with the world- bitch about it until somebody else fixes it for you.

Men who engage in deliberate helplessness just so they can be bitter at everything are complete losers, because they literally have virtually no value to anyone or anything and worse, are often a drag on others because of all their drama. These are the people who don’t self-improve and embark on a quest of self-discovery because they choose not to.

They look at the masculine journey as detailed by the Red Pill and turn their backs upon it, because the truth requires that you help yourself and do the hard work of becoming a man. They think the world will heed their cries and pull them out of their mud-bath of self-pitying but don’t realise that such help only applies for vagina-owners.

Conclusion

There are more problems that plague Singaporean men and affect their prospects of a happy, self-actualised life of course, but these 7 basic issues are what you can take note of first as they are so common and widespread here. Take steps to eliminate them if you ever find them in your life for they are obstacles on the path of your masculine journey.

 

 

 

Fighting Progressives and Recruiting Insurgents

ab370a2b962d2168056dc8065268fa98

The Fire Rises

The Red Pill insurgency has been gaining momentum in the past few years, but 2016 was the year were it really went mainstream to have a visible impact in the public ideological battlefield.

Previously restricted to just isolated groups of Red Pill men trading ideas on the forgotten corners of the internet, Red Pill truths are now for the first time, publicly presented in active opposition to the prevailing Progressive narrative while leftists all stand slack-jawed in disbelief as their most powerful rhetorical weapons proved to be all but useless.

But this is just the first step- it’s time for the insurgency to make the next stamp by ramping up recruitment in order to gain in strategic effectiveness. The time has never been more ripe that to make a big move as it is now when leftists are reeling back from the heavy body blows at their recent defeats.

Singapore fortunately has still been largely spared by Progressive creep into it’s ideological mainstream but make no mistake- the enemy here is trying hard, throwing every Progressive ideal wholesale they can rip off from the west to make something stick.

And some has, if the rise of Singaporean identity politics in memes like Chinese Privilege has risen in popularity among the english-educated demographics. A quick look around the Singaporean internetz will quickly find several wannabe Progressives preaching leftist dogma wholesale, working hard to push the Progressive agenda into the social fabric of Singapore.

The fight is on, and the field is open for battle.

Remember that local Progressives are by and large not intellectually committed to the on-paper ideas that they preach. For many of them taking these ideological stances is a often a statement of fashion, a lifestyle accessory that allows them to signal their virtue to others in their social circle as well as think of themselves as superior to the unwashed masses.

This lack of adherence to any intellectual standards and belief in their own superiority means that your Progressive will not be honest, neither will they act in good faith when engaging others outside of their dogma. SJWs always lie, and they will never play fair. Get this in your head, they are the enemy, they are not content to leave you be, and they wish nothing more than for the destruction of your way of life for their own amusement and social proof. 

Fighting Progressives 

In any case Progressives ideas are destructive to a civillisation and needs to be combated and defeated by local Red Pill insurgents on the battlefield of ideas. To do so you need to team up with fellow Red Pills and move to engage Progressives where you see them. Remember you will be at a disadvantage as the Progressives will be wielding powerful rhetorical weapons designed to discredit you as a racist, sexist, homophobe and all sorts of deplorable villainy.

Do not back down, realise that they are attempting to define the frame of the conversation in their favour and don’t play ball. The frame of what is considered moral in Singapore has not shifted to the leftist side, but they are winning as the population shifts to be more r-selected and has never experienced the full horrors of the progressive narrative turning their societies into a madhouse. Unlike the West where decades of progressive ideas has generated fatigue and disillusionment, you have to fight uphill against the natural inclinations of the population to entertain leftist ideas.

So you have to be smart and nimble, pick your attacks where they can cause maximum damage and do not bother with being bogged down in unproductive ones. Remember a 100 post back and forth exchange just to win an argument that nobody has the time for is useless versus a single tersely worded linguistic killshot that completely shatters the Progressive psyche for all to see. Reserve your detailed debates only with people who are honestly trying to explore the issues and learn something.

Keep your true stances and intentions unclear and mysterious to the enemy and always force them to qualify themselves and their ideas. Remember in Singapore the Red Pill social insurgency is still relatively unknown so make use of this to catch your enemy off-guard.

Remember to keep your debates short, impressive and always put your opponents on the defensive by making them defend themselves. Hit them hard and fade away before they can react, prevent them from gaining footholds in the ideological battlefield by crushing their attempts to define the frame of the debate on their terms. Dominate them so totally that their attempts to use their most powerful accusatory weapons of racism/sexism/whateverism look more like desperate last-ditch plays that impress exactly no one. Watch them shrink away as they realise they bit off more than they could chew.

Recruiting Insurgents

The insurgency must grow as the fire rises, never has the time been more ripe than to start unplugging your fellow men, with their minds being primed by what has happened in America with Trump getting elected and smashing the leftist narrative of cultural invulnerability.

Note that while your Blue pill friends are conditioned to automatically express a revulsion towards all things Trump, the seed of an idea has been planted in their heads just by witnessing all that has happened. They had a glimpse of how a Red Pill social insurgency can defeat the Leftist narrative in a surprise upset. While many cognitive dissonance filters are working to keep the Blue Pill strongly entrenched, these happenings have created leverage in their minds that you can work on.

And if you know how to act on them, you can start to slowly sway your Blue Pill towards a path that takes them to the Rabbit Hole and into the Red. Personally I have seen this happen as I engaged with some Blue Pill friends who were looking for some explanation on what had happened beyond the cut and dried leftist ideas that they are starting to suspect. They didn’t go fully Red Pill of course- unplugging is a long process, but they were far less sympathetic with the Progressive narrative when I was done with them.

Remember the idea is not just to win people entirely over to your side, we are not Progressives who demand unity of thought within dogma and employ brain washing and indoctrination techniques to enforce behaviour. Going Red Pill is a process of self-realisation, and you can only get the most dedicated and motivated insurgents that will carry on the fight when they have picked up the mantle of saving civillisation from Progressive rot on their own volition.

Take your time with unplugging people slowly, it will take patience, but the results are worth it. Meanwhile, Progressives are running around desperately trying to beat people into their mould with threats of labelling them as social outcasts. Compared to them, you will seem like the paragon of reason, a person who is truly interested in making the world a better place instead of just seeming to do so for social proofs.

There are those who are already pretty much Red Pill in outlook- they just haven’t learnt the terms. They people are ripe for recruitment into the social insurgency if they haven’t already been unknowingly waging one themselves. You just need to convince them of the danger of Progressive infiltration in soceity and they will join you. Keep an eye out for these people for they are valuable and an easy way to quickly build your ranks. A good deal of my best fellow insurgents came from this demographic, so place this as a top priority as much as you can. Always be on the lookout for fellow Red Pills. 

And there are Blue Pills who are on the cusp of taking the Red due to personal life crises. The Blue Pill outlook has been seriously threatened by something happening to them that has led them to realise that their fantastical Blue Pill beliefs are inadequate. This is most often seen in a breakup where a guy was dumped for being too beta. Start opening their eyes up slowly to the Red Pill by feeding them small doses of it. Before long you will have your own insurgents.

In any case it’s not just enough to attack Progressives effectively, you need to build your own tribe as well. This is the only way you can win in the long term.

The fire rises.

 

Racist! Sexist!Misogynist! Homophobic! Xenophobic!!!

jupzeyaljnzfv9vhfk_e8-nw5fmlei-ph633sfpukcs

Every belief system that has achieved some level of dominance in mainstream thought will have gatekeeping memes in place to protect the entire memeplex. These gatekeeping memes serve to defend the ideology against the assault of heretical ideas and ideological opponents.

Progressive ideologies like feminism and all your various leftist social justice causes are no different, being the dominant narrative in the mainstream they have come to determine the frame of what is considered appropriate discourse in society, they have several powerful gatekeeping memes in play to defend Progressivism from rival ideologies. When all else has failed and an offender cannot be brought to kneel to the demands of Progressive ideas, these gatekeeping memes are brought out as a blunt instrument to motivate compliance through coercion and fear.

The most prominent gatekeeping memes in play with these ideologies play upon the fear of social ostracisation by falling afoul of progressive standards, which are assumed to be common morality. They involve accusing the offender with labels that brand them as having breached progressive standards of moral behaviour.

Hence the oft-heard cry of Racist! Sexist! Misogynist! Homophobic! Xenophobic! being applied liberally (no pun intended) when an issue isn’t quite going the liberal way.

These labels do not need to be valid in order to have their intended effect of shutting the offender up. The very risk of being labeled with these accusations have a powerful chilling effect on most people who have come to accept the liberal frame of morality as the dominant standard in soceity. Even if one does not subscribe to liberal ideas, the very act of being subjected to such accusations put intense social pressure to submit.

As gatekeeping memes, the liberal accusation of faux-Racism, Sexism, Misogyny and other sins that offend liberal sensibilities serve as very powerful memetic antibiotics to quickly remove and shut down the propagation rival ideas.

But they overused it.

The inherent usefulness of these labelling tactic has led to them being applied liberally by progressives in every imaginable situation as a shortcut to actual discourse when it comes convincing others of their ideas. Sitting with your legs too wide? You’re a sexist manspreader. Rocket scientist wearing a raunchy shirt? He’s a sexist oppressor holding back women from STEM fields. Pointing out the higher rates of HIV infections among men who have sex with men? You must be homophobic. Questioning the dogma that mass immigration and diversity is always good? Xenophobic.

Modern progressivism has gotten increasingly anti-intellectual because it has devolved to being an ideology of labels. The very usefulness of these labels in forcing compliance has led to their overuse and substitution in the place of doing actual thinking and convincing.

This is why when you get any one of these labels applied to you by a feminist or SJW, you should know that the debate has more or less already been won by you and the enemy is just resorting to the last-ditch use of gatekeeping memetics to force you to submit. Realise that this is a desperate play and call it out for what it is.

Do not submit to their frame, stay on point, and keep hammering in on their collapsing argument while showing that you are completely unfazed by their attempts to label as a racist/sexist/whateverist. Watch them get increasingly desperate as they realise their last-ditch effort to bully you into silence isn’t working, and enjoy the squirming as they desperately try to disengage- better still if it’s through a meltdown throwing every term in the SJW in a bid to make something stick.

Your victory and unflappability in the face of tactics that liberals have long used to bully and dominate others into submission, will embolden many others who have felt the overbearing gaze of progressive moral policing. For what is their choice after all? To live in fear of the progressive moral police or start sticking it up to them?

For many it will be an easy choice

The fire rises.

One of the reasons why the social insurgency represented by the reactionary right has been so successful in the ideological battlefield versus mainstream progressivism is because they have proven to be all but immune to the memetic attacks of liberal labelling, leaving bewildered progressives wondering why their trusty rhetorical weapons now have no bite.

This refusal to accept the progressive frame, along with an unrelenting outright attack on everything they stand for proved not only decisive in removing a lot of the idealogical dominance they used to hold in the mainstream, but also an emboldenment of others who have long felt the heavy yoke of progressive dogma, leading to more being aware of and supporting the insurgency.

So remember, SJWs always lie. When confronted and rendered weaponless they invariably crumble. In fact, being called a sexist, racist, or whatever they would care to label you with is often a good sign that the progressive you are engaging is at the end of his or her tether.

Press the attack and win.

Sangeetha Antics: Give Me Power!

fc3646a02beca4bbf6c05e711f81c0eb354d253149028d9ce0fca9def3aaf63a

Sangeetha has an important message for her allies on how they can be good ones:


screen-shot-2017-02-07-at-9-39-58-am


 

Remember, you are not an ally until you give the oppressed free stuff.

Because the quickest way to build true respect for and give dignity to someone else is to simply transfer status and resources to them.

If you haven’t noticed, Talon was being sarcastic.

The anticompetitive r-selected mindsets of progressives mean they always gravitate towards ideologies that always involve the redistribution of resources, progressives hate K-selected competition and an inequality of outcomes regardless of the cause because competition of any sorts is greatly distressing to the r-selected mindset of the rabbit person.

The history of giving away stuff to “help” an “oppressed” group is rife with how these attempts rarely built true respect and dignity among less-privileged groups, and there is a good reason for this- as long as you are always demanding for and getting handouts you can’t shake the impression that you only got where you are because of the self-flagellation kindness of your “allies”.

This is why affirmative action often fails- you can change the distribution of resources but the problem remains if the inequality of outcomes is due to factors other than racism (which is mostly the case in Singapore), all you’ve done is to “equalise” outcomes via a massive pumping operation based on social demands.

The end result is never permanent, you can only gain true respect and dignity by earning it and showing your K-selected value in competition.

But being a rabbit person, Sangeetha will never get it.

Aging Progressives

“If a person is not a liberal by 25 he has no heart, if he is not a conservative by 35 he has no brain.” 

As members of a young ideological movement Red Pill social insurgents aren’t born into their way of thinking, most of the folks who come to Red Pill truths about the world do so through a process of unplugging from their Blue Pill mindsets.

Talon here is no different- I was your typical hapless asian Beta Blue Pill trying to get through a liberal humanities course in university drinking deep from the fount of liberal progressive ideology. I was young and in my twenties, fully invested in the idea that us progressive liberal millennials were the bleeding edge of soceity set to usher in a new age of humanity free from the ignorance of our knuckle-dragging racist and sexist elders.

This is not too surprising when you realise that the younger brain fresh out of teenage development tends to be predisposed towards seek out novelty. That coupled with a lack of experience with the real world thanks to our sheltered upbringing has led to a generation that naturally gravitates towards liberalism, with all it’s novelty seeking revolutionary radical causes promising big changes in the world.

It isn’t until these folks age and start accruing hard-bitten real-world experience they start viewing things differently and realising gaps in the model of the liberal solution to everything- Complete equality is impossible nor is it desirable to achieve at all costs. The genders are different and ignoring these differences for feminist-approved ideology often leads to disaster. Diversity only works if the groups you are trying to diversify with actually have something of value to offer.

These shifts in perception come from the relentless beat of harsh reality wearing down the idealistic liberal paradigms that we had naively adopted during our younger years. We start to see the world for what it really is and plan accordingly.

For Talon, the triggering event for unplugging came abruptly through the unceremonious end of a relationship in which I had invested all my Beta energies and paradigms into. This is by no means an unusual occurrence- the end of a relationship is where many Blue Pill men find to be the start point of their unplugging journey.

I didn’t go all Red Pill immediately, rather it was a slow realisation that all the Blue Pill paradigms and narratives that I had been sold since young was inadequate to explain and address the challenges of life. I started to ask questions that were considered heretical to Blue Pill belief, I started to read around and follow the trajectory of men who had walked my path before.

Little by little I became Red Pill. I realised that our elders were right on many things about human nature that we had dismissed as old bigotries.While it was probably my scientific mindset that made me gravitate towards a structured and codified model of the world as explained by Red Pill thinking, many of my peers around my age had found their way to similar conclusions without ever hearing of the term “Red Pill”.

As we grew older, we shifted right in response to the realities we saw around us.

But not everyone did, a good deal of my Blue Pill uni friends are still Blue Pill, some even having doubled down on it in response to failures in their personal lives. It is a sad sight to watch, but years of trying to unplug them have made me realise that turning Red Pill is a personal choice and one that requires a brutal, honest reflection on oneself.

I also noticed a gender gap in this shift from left to right- while I could see a number of my male schoolmates from uni shifting to Red Pill truths as they matured, this same trend was not really observed for the females who more or less showed relatively little shift in their view of the world, remaining steadfastly progressive.

And this is where things get interesting.

I’ve noticed that my liberal schoolmates don’t age well.

The characteristics we associate with progressive thinking have a natural affinity for the young as it appeals to the energetic, novelty seeking nature that comes with youthful energy. But there is a time and place for everything and the experimentations of novelty seeking necessarily need to be tempered with the real life experiences in order to become mature, well adjusted individuals that can build and defend civillisation.

But we never really saw this with my liberal schoolmates. Sure they found bigger and more complicated words to describe the injustices in world via. their progressive paradigm but as functional adults doing functional things they are incomplete.

Basically they are stuck in perpetual young adulthood. Immature. Incomplete. Stuck in the lala land of regressive progressive ideology. And as much as I despise regressives and all their backwardness it is hard to watch people that you used to go to school with get stuck in life with no fucking clue about what to do.

It’s especially tragic to watch for the females, stuck in an ever repeating loop of trying to achieve the false dreams that feminism had promised them, with each new failure in achieving a life milestone while watching their twenties dwindle away leading them to blame the world for their lack of progress.

Meanwhile the more sensible of the lot had already settled down happily and quietly started families, moving on to the next phase of life as nature intended. They don’t make a big fuss about what they are doing, they have taken on adult responsibilities and started giving back to civillisation, finding happiness and contentment in that.

In contrast, the “empowered” feministas flail around, exploding their social media feeds about fears of aging, why they can’t find a right man (because men are sexists for not wanting to date a drama-filled aging woman with little to offer that a man would like), why being aging and single is awesome, the next bullshit tattoo they are getting, the next social justice cause they are jumping onto, and how many cats they intend to get.

For all the posturing, they strike me as perpetually immature, constantly unhappy people.

They know that somehow the whole progressive gig does not have a very good retirement package, but are so invested in it that they have no choice but to double down convincing themselves that they have it better than the rest who sold out to common sense.

It is sad, it like watching milk spoil. All that youthful vitality fading to bitterness and desperation never achieving its potential.

The aging progressive is inherently unhappy, because utopia never came and they blame the world for it. They are stuck in the idealistic novelty seeking of their twenties and don’t realise that there is a time and place for everything and they’ve held their hand for too long.

The progressive does not age well.

As masculine Red Pill men our job is to save our kin from ending up with such a fate. Know that unchecked progressivism is a life dead-end. People who stay too long in the idealistic paradigms of youthful liberalism and refuse to grow out of it will eventually find that there is no pot at the end of their liberal fantasy, but rather nature demanding that they foot the bill for all that wasted time. Always take the opportunity to remind people of this reality.

Insurgents vs.The Weakening Liberal Narrative

maxresdefault

The stunning defeats the mainstream progressive narrative suffered recently offer a good study in how a smaller, but more nimble and motivated force can punch way above it’s weight while facing a larger and more powerful foe.

On paper it shouldn’t even be a contest, over the past decades since winning the culture war progressives have controlled mainstream dialogue on what is considered moral and managed to emplaced the all-powerful memes of “racism/sexism/whateverism” in popular consciousness to serve as gatekeepers to their narrative. Run afoul of liberal dogma and see how quickly these terms will be used on you to bring you to heel.

On top of that, the progressive movement has enjoyed virtually uncontested support in mainstream media coverage, being able to bring the heavy hand of the media and associated lynch mobs upon any who threaten the modern progressive narrative with heresy.

While most of this has been happening in the West, even Singapore is not immune to the rise of such regressive culture, having seen several incidents in which local regressives have mobilised in an attempt to bring Western-style liberal outrage mobs to respond to any breach of the liberal narrative. While Singapore may not be fully aware of it, the frame of public consciousness, especially among the english-educated crowd is shifting to the liberal narrative, slowing uprooting the traditional Singaporean mindset as the various memes of regressivism sink their roots.

In any case, in most parts of the first-world in the West liberals control the frame. They are the new moral majority have have been since the won the culture wars of the 60s. They hold many advantages over other idealogical narratives and have the means to ruthlessly crush opposing ideas without much effort.

So how they they suffer so many stunning defeats of late? How did the cultural juggernauts of progressivism, feminism and social justice packing all the advantages lose out to an unorganised rabble of deplorables?

That’s because they’ve gotten fat, complacent, and are fighting yesterday’s war.

Your modern progressive is a descendent of the original liberals that fought and won the culture wars against the traditional right. As much as the modern progressive/feminist/SJW claims to be fighting, they actually function more like occupation troops seeking to police and entrench their narrative in a cultural battlefield that they have already won. The various strategies, tactics, and weapons were designed to be effective against traditional conservatives and people who have accepted their framing of social issues.

By and large they are playing by the rules of the game that have more or less been accepted by everyone in the mainstream on both left and right since the 60s- diversity is good, racism and sexism are bad, equality is an unquestionable good, and all the various conventions that have come to make up what is considered the modern progressive dogma.

Traditional conservatives, foolishly accepting the progressive framing of morality, are constantly on the defensive will never be able to out left the left and are stuck trying to explain why their position is more moral in a time when everybody is shifting left from them. This is why traditional mainstream conservatives cannot, and will not win the culture war.

It is in such an environment where liberals, now victorious as the new mainstream moral majority have made themselves into the cultural establishment. It is in this cultural establishment that modern progressives, feminists and SJWs patrol and carry out their various forms of cultural policing and politicking for higher positions in the liberal hierarchy. The traditional right is not a threat because the methods to contain them are established.

But the victory of the left sowed the seeds of the Red Pill movement that would eventually burst out into a fully-fledged social insurgency that would prove to be immune to most of the traditional weapons that the left could bring to bear in the battlefield of ideas.

This social insurgency was unlike what the progressive establishment was used to fighting- there were no central figures to take down in a classic decapitation strike and what few figures that appeared to be important were just riding the wave of the insurgency as opposed to guiding it. While there were many differing strands of ideology within the insurgency, several contradictory at times they were all united and focused in their common goal of taking down the left.

The traditional tools of suppressing ideological opponents by drawing from the traditional rhetorical toolbox of calling them racists and sexists didn’t work, drawing dismissive derision instead of capitulation.

This social insurgency was also fast and nimble, being able to quickly react to changing circumstances and put out memes and counter-memes much faster than what their mainstream opponents could do while the progressives were at a loss to finding something that could work.

The energy was infectious, as it gained momentum more people joined the insurgency or supported it quietly from the sidelines, seeing it as something that could finally deal damage against the progressive juggernaut that previously seemed untouchable.

While all this was happening the progressive response was confused and muddled, unsure of how to respond to a new and deadly threat that was unlike anything they had seen before. Worse, the politicking in their own ranks prevented them from forming a unified response with a good deal of energy being wasted on infighting.

The progressives were fighting yesterday’s war while the insurgency is fighting from the future. The progressive narrative was maintained by vested interests in existing structures by virtue of being the establishment and hence intrinsically tied to defending them while the insurgency was free to move and strike and will.

While the progressives are spread out defending a massive memeplex of ideas in all areas of mainstream public thought the insurgents could focus on individual areas and attack them in strength, cycling through many different methods of assault while possessing few apparent weaknesses that their opponents can exploit.

All this wasn’t apparent at first, as in their arrogance progressives have assumed themselves to be the endpoint of history and did not foresee a effective large-scale challenge to their stranglehold on mainstream ideological space. It wasn’t until a series of stunning defeats to the liberal narrative did they realise that the barbarians are sacking Rome.

It is in this battlefield that you, the social insurgent find yourself now. You are part of a global reactionary movement to save your culture against the extinction of regressive progressivism that has made several key victories recently. While these victories are encouraging more work still needs to be done.

The progressive narrative has been dealt several heavy blows recently but it remains dangerous. It is now fully aware of the threat the social insurgency poses and more likely that not will become more effective in tackling the insurgency. There is no time to rest and every social insurgent needs to move fast.

The new culture wars have started, and things are about to get real interesting in the coming years.

 

Female Red Flags: Singapore Edition Part 1

2845420_542a1ba0

Despite the explosion of Red Pill awareness around the world in recent years, a significant proportion of Singaporean men do not have a good grasp of Red Pill principles.

Being a high-context asian soceity aside, (which means a good deal of local men are already mass-produced, repressed Blue Pills deeply invested in the Beta script towards relationship success) Red Pill knowledge still largely exists as an western body of knowledge tailored for the American/European context, which are low-context cultures facing relatively different pressures and challenges.

But the basic Red Pill truths are pretty much universal and apply across all cultures, it just takes dedicated work of several social insurgents working to localise it for their own cultures. A small but rapidly growing community of Red Pill aware men are rising in our sunny island state, and Talon here is one working tirelessly to unplug as many local Blue Pills as possible and prepare them to face an increasingly degenerate soceity that has stacked the deck against hapless beta men.

So let’s get to the meat for today’s post, female red flags, SINGAPORE EDITION.

Through the past few years of interacting with my social circle after becoming Red Pill, I’ve realised that a good amount of guys make extremely poor choices while choosing women for a relationship.

I am not talking about short term flings or one night stands here- you can find plenty of advice on that with the various PUA communities here, but rather long term commitment. The Long Term Relationship, the woman you intend to make a wife of, to build a legacy with.

For those of you who are MGTOW or don’t see the need to get into an LTR or marriage that’s alright, you can stop reading at this point- we are free men to choose whatever rocks our boat.

But Talon asserts that healthy marriages and relationships are the basic building block of any civillisation, and a fundamental unit in which the culture war will be won. Functional LTRs and marriages build a functional soceity while dysfunctional ones lead to degeneration, but all that is for another post- we are here practical advice.

In any case a good deal of guys are still interested in going down the LTR path and wonder how they can do so without getting burned or their heart ripped out through their wallet in divorce court. So what is the secret to avoid all this? It really all starts with the quality of the woman you choose to be involved with.

A good and faithful woman with her head screwed on properly will build something quite wonderful with (preferably a Red Pill) you in an LTR/marriage. A one of poor quality will bring nothing but grief for you.

Being a masculine, Red Pill aware man means knowing how to unapologetically sort the wheat from the chaff. The Blue Pill delusions assert that every woman is equally beautiful, valuable and wonderful for an LTR, but the Red Pill knows that value propositions and risk factors from the parties within a relationship matters.

As part of your Red Pill sorting process, you need to be able look out for the Red Flags first- these are warning indicators that you must heed and not make excuses for as they indicate a high-probability that you are dealing with a very poor risk for an LTR. While having a red flag may not mean that an LTR woman is automatically going to fail, they should at the very least warrant more attention and investigation on your side. Several red flags in an individual should be more than enough indication for you to consider them a deal breaker and move on the better prospects.

Remember that you need to be ruthless in your sorting, this is your life you are talking about. Many beta Blue Pills have been burned because they overlooked too many red flags in their “perfect one”.

So enough for all that preamble, let’s look into 5 basic Red Flags you need to be aware of:


1.  High Sexual Partner Count

11_tshirt_front_woman

Basically, the woman is a bona-fide sexually active slut and has had a sexual history with an extremely high partner count. In the manosphere this is known as the Notch number, or N for short.

Studies have indicated that a higher N count raises the divorce risk with a woman. The more previous sexual partners she has had, the more likely your marriage will not last. The manosphere has many theories on this and they are worth many an article, but the basic gist is that having a high number of previous sexual partners affects a woman’s ability to bond with you.

The N count of any woman is something you should take deliberate steps to find out. It should be the first thing you should always try to find out if possible. It may take some effort to tease out the truth as women have a habit of under-declaring their N counts, especially in Asia when they are trying to get a guy for LTR. Be careful, and get some third-party sources of intel if you can.

Remember, no rings for sluts. What she has given away freely she now wants to toil and strive in order to earn. Don’t be the Beta chump. Walk away.


2. “Changing Boyfriends Like Changing Underwear”

hqdefault

We all know the type, the girl who has had a string of multiple relationships and can’t seem to keep in one. While somewhat similar to Red Flag 1, with the difference being these boyfriends don’t necessarily need to have been her sexual partners.

In any case, a girl who goes through a lot of relationships in short order advertises a lack of qualities that make her desirable as an LTR. She is likely to be emotionally immature, has no concept of commitment, and sees relationships mainly as a source of emotional fulfilment with no need on her side to keep things running once things go tough.

Don’t think that it will be different for you- more likely than not it won’t be and she will always be comparing you to BF #17, #12, and #32 whenever you don’t give her the tingles.

Oh yeah, do we need to mention the chances of cheating with an old flame are probably elevated as well? Walk away and find a woman who understand the concept of sticking through hard times.

Don’t be the guy who invests in a local version of Taylor Swift, your energy and time is better spent elsewhere.


3. She is a Feminist

quote-as-i-grew-up-and-began-identifying-myself-as-a-feminist-there-were-plenty-of-issues-jessica-valenti-106-70-84

This one should be a no-brainer if you are already a Red-Pill aware man, but that hasn’t stopped some of my friends who were thinking with their balls. The verdict? Invariably painful.

This is common sense, don’t date a woman has her head filled with theories on why you are evil and oppressive. As much as she may be nice to you now rest assured when the chips are down, her feminist ideas aren’t going to motivate her to bat on your team.

Also, if you guys get married and are thinking of going the way of starting a family good luck trying to convince her to listen to you if she wants to abort your child. Good luck raising children who aren’t conditioned to hate themselves if they are male, or hold you in contempt as the patriarch. The only approved role you will find yourself playing is that of the snivelling self-deprecating Beta forever handing his balls to his wife, aka. John Scalzi. Don’t be that guy.

While openly feminist women are still relatively rare here in Singapore, they tend to be more common among the english-educated females so you need to be more aware if you are dealing with one. Try to tease out their idealogical leaning subtly and see how they react when their dogma is challenged to determine how much feminist kool-aid they have taken.


4. Emotional Instability/Mental Disorders

This is a sad one and not often within control of the individual, but unfortunately a woman who is emotionally unstable will not be a good LTR prospect. You can try sticking it out if you think you can somehow support her in all that but sometimes it’s best to do that as a friend and not as a partner.

There are cases in which a woman has a personality disorder that compels her purposely farms drama in order to watch you scramble to deal with it. They get a kick from seeing such things happen, don’t be suckered in.

I’ve seen friends who are in LTRs with such characters before, it is ugly. Don’t drink from that bitter cup if you can avoid it. Being emotionally unstable is a big red flag. Don’t take that abuse and walk away for women who know how to control themselves like the Alpha male you are.


5. Tattoos/Colourful Hair/Celebration of Deviant Behaviours

screen-shot-2015-10-28-at-15-17-201

You will probably get a good deal of flack if you ever openly state this as a red flag but it’s true. There is a correlation between tattoos and risk-taking deviant behaviour, scaling with the amount of ink a woman has. Be especially aware if she has had a lot done.

Getting tattoos is indicative of a particular psychology that celebrates novelty-seeking and risk-taking. While not bad things in themselves, they represent a risk that you need to be aware of for an LTR. A woman who is okay with stamping herself with ink is also more likely to be predisposed to think that suboptimal behaviours that affect an LTR is okay, as long as it excites her.

More importantly, it also indicates that a woman has non-traditional views of her femininity and is willing to disfigure herself permanently to do so. This is especially so if the tattoos are frivolous and generally meaningless, pay attention to bullshit quotes and cutesy designs. This is indicative of a mentality that is present-oriented and does not really think for the future.

Coloured hair is also something you should look out for, especially if they are extremely bright and attention seeking. The woman who does her hair this way wants attention and is sending out a message. The message you should be getting that this is a red flag for LTR prospects and she is likely to be trouble.

Ideologically, you should also sound them off on their opinions of deviant behaviours. The more acceptance and celebration of degeneracy and deviancy the less likely they are to be good LTR prospects for a Red Pill masculine man.

Unfortunately, an increasing number of Singaporean women are increasingly disfiguring themselves with bad tattoos, attention-seeking hair colours, and celebrating deviant behaviours. Don’t add to the degeneracy by adding market demand via dating these women. Have standards.


 

These are just 5 basic Red Flags that you need to look into as you consider a woman for an LTR prospect. Remember that while the existence of a Red Flag may not automatically disqualify her it is something you need to be aware of and investigate throughly in order to determine their impact.

We will be looking into more Red Flags in upcoming posts, but learn to be aware of these 5 first.

 

Identity Politics, For Singapore?

aaeaaqaaaaaaaadraaaajdkyzmm0m2q0ltvlmtctngu3ni1ioda3ltnhzdizzwqym2vhza

It is no secret that progressives are neck-deep in identity politics. Basically all of the multi-headed Hydra of idealogical movements in modern regressive liberalism draw their rationale from the fount of identity politics. White privilege, sexism, transphobia, fat acceptance and what have you not all find their basis and reason for being there.

While us in the Reactionary Red Pill Social Insurgency reject modern regressive liberalism and many of it’s values outright, it would behoove one as a social insurgent to better understand the certain premises that the progressives use to construct their world views in order to better wage effective memetic warfare.

The truth of the matter is identity politics is ultimately divisive as the inherent nature of sorting issues out based on what people are will end up splitting them into different groups more often than not at odds.

For example, the idea of white privilege as SJWs and progressives present it necessarily single out Whites as a group from the rest, regardless of if individuals within the group truly qualify as privileged.

While the goals of white privilege as a social theory is to examine and remove racial inequity (by taking privilege away from whites), in practice as a memeplex white privilege often ends up being about the irrevocable eternal villianhood of the Caucasian as the last thing those with vested interests in peddling the theory would want is for it to actually achieve it’s stated goals and put the progressives who have benefited from it out of business.

Progressive identity politics is inherently divisive and self-sustaining with no endgame in sight. It will make a lot of noise about wanting to remove inequity but isn’t interested in true equality and will seek to continually find ever more extreme justifications to keep the memeplex running, even if it is to the point of ludicrosity.

Because it was never about equality in the first place. It is about defining an in-group of desirables and an out-group to demonise, mining social resources by attempting to arm-twist concessions out of the out-group until something gives.

This is why you don’t try to please SJWs, it is never enough. It will never be enough.

 

Now the human being is a pack animal and identity politics is not just unique to regressive progressivism. Humans have long used group selection narratives in order to strengthen social bonds, which obviously served us well in survival. Not all forms of group identification are bad or unhealthy. The incohesive group will be defeated by another that can work as a team.

But SJW identity politics is that it is inherently dyscivic. It sets up and amplifies divisions within a civillisation that are detrimental to it’s long-term survival. It is a parasitic form of group-selection that largely leeches from civillisation by setting up an aggrieved group with a chip off the shoulder demanding more from the rest while giving nothing in return. It encourages an aggrieved group to seperate their goals from the combined interests of the civillisation hosting it.

The question is do we want this here in Singapore?

Singapore has a couple of mainstream narratives running that help to define an identity for it in order for the various groups within it to function in a pro-social and harmonious manner. Our nation after all is a constructed one that rose from a unique set of circumstances that required a deliberate effort in nation building.

The mainstream Singaporean narrative asserts that the main races (seperate but equal), work together as Singaporeans first for the progress and benefit of all. Unlike the “melting pot” model of multiculturalism in the west, Singapore’s approach towards it has always been to carefully tread the lines between various groups while giving case-by-case concessions to keep everybody happy while working together towards one general vision, which generally involves peace and prosperity for all.

One could criticise all this as an artificial and constructed identity and they might have a point. But the nobody can deny that it works- the result are clear for all to see especially if you compare it to the muddled results of identity politics up north.

Despite being constructed, the mainstream Singapore model of identity politics worked because people were willing to overlook several inconvenient inconsistencies in the narratives for the big-picture view of peace and prosperity for all. The stakes were high after all as the survival of the island republic was at stake during the early decades of independence.Everybody was in the same boat together, even if we didn’t see eye-to-eye on everything.

At the end of the day, identity only matters because we identify by them. One could see the various narratives of group identity as collective hallucinations. Some collective hallucinations are more useful than others in helping us to survive. We knew that the collective hallucination of identifying as Singaporeans was more useful to our survival during the turbulent years of nation building instead of segregated collective hallucinations of race and religion creating groups constantly at odds. The pioneer generation acted accordingly and choose their brand of identity politics to go by, that of a collective, united Singapore and built up something quite unique in the world.

But things are different now that Singapore has achieved resource security. Group survival is less of an issue now and in such an easy environment, the rationale of needing to have a collective Singaporean identity is less pressing.

There is more advantage now in splitting, not uniting. Now that things are easy, the focus is not on bringing Singapore forward together as a nation but rather how various groups have been, justifiably or not, been perceived to be shortchanged by others.

It is in this environment where we start to see SJW identity politics start to rise. SJW identity politics is not rational, it has no desire to be. It relies on generating negative emotions, dividing people, putting them at odds, and creating a zero sum game where one must prevail over the other.

There are many ways to respond to this of course. One could attempt to dump all forms of identity politics but this is unlikely given that we are tribal animals.

What is more likely to happen is that the out-group, which is usually the majority considered the most privileged will silently tolerate the increasing attacks on them via SJW identity politics until they decide to play the same game and lash back, which is what we are seeing this with the rise of White Nationalism with the alt-right in America right now. As opposed to capitulating to the ever-increasing demonisation of Whites under identity politics, an increasing number of disgrunted white folks are deciding to play the same game instead, but on their terms.

The eventual endgame of SJW identity politics if allowed to run unchecked, is racial and religious conflict.

I’ve observed the steady drumbeat of race baiters in Singapore attempt to import the American culture wars here, slowly tearing at the weakening national narratives that had kept our nation united and moving forward till now. They think that their anger and disgruntlement is righteous, and are trying to make as many people in their demarcated in-group disgruntled and unhappy as possible. They look at the identity politics in America and wish it here, delusionally seeing themselves as central figures in a dawning social movement.

They do not know it, but they are playing with fire.

 

 

The Insurgency Rises

131210-F-MO006-259

If you haven’t been living under a rock and have been following world events for the past year (a bad idea, for a Masculine man should always be informed on happenings) you would have noticed that there is an ongoing shift in the zeitgeist of many first-world nations.

Namely, the monolithic liberal narrative that has come to dominate the mainstream since the left won the culture war of the 60s is starting to show weakness. Stunning defeats to the liberal world view by world events such as Brexit and the rise of Trump, events unthinkable just years ago indicate that there is a sea change coming.

The change will be sudden, it will be huge, and it will be unexpected for those who are unprepared. The worldwide social insurgency against the monolithic liberal narrative is rising.

It’s hard to say how this will affect Singapore, given as a nation the liberal narrative is still trying to make headway in here. But my take is in the next few years local progressives are suddenly going to find themselves cut off from their source of idealogical supply as the dominance of the left in Europe and America is challenged by the rise of Red-Pill social insurgency there. As far as social justice goes in Singapore, local SJWs basically import their ideas wholesale with some terms switched out to barely pass for local.

This will start to be more difficult as each meme the left puts out will be co-opted and countered by several memes the Red-Pill social insurgency in short order. We have seen this happen in the past year and this will only keep up as long as the left fails to understand the nature of their opponent.

Our SJWs will have to start making up their own social theories and memes, because the ones coming in from the west will arrive increasingly ineffective.

The left is on the defensive, the pivot point has happened.

What does this mean for you, the social insurgent here? These are ripe times to seize the initiative and strike several decisive blows to the progressive degeneracy that is threatening to take root in Singapore.

The Red-Pill insurgency is moving and reacting much faster than the left, putting out memes and ideas at a higher rate, as long as local SJWs rely on progressive ideas from the left they are fighting a losing battle, attempting to force their way into social consciousness by using the old and tired cliches of “racist! sexist! xenophobic!”.

Take them down in debate without mercy, and recruit even more like minded and energetic people to your side. Drop deep into enemy territory and hit them where they least expect it in all their safe-spaced. The regressive left is losing, they just haven’t realised it yet but there is blood in the water.

It’s time for the social insurgency here to rise. The simmering culture war is about to get hot here. Your job as a masculine man is to save your culture from it’s slow progressive slide to degeneracy.

 

Male vs Female Excellence

duzx4vnNot what most feminists have in mind when charting out a path to female success.


“Ah you think darkness is your ally? You merely adopted the dark. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn’t see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but blinding!”

-Bane


The respect you earned by working for it is worth more than the respect you get by convention.

One of the things that progressives, feminists and those of the social justice persuation will invariably fail to realise in their quest to narrow the gap in outcomes between the genders is that a lot of the differences come about due to the fact that as a gender, men have to suffer and slog in order to earn their claims to excellence.

The feminist assumption is that men are privileged and treated differentially from cradle to grave, hogging the limelight while oppressing and preventing women from achieving the same levels of success and excellence. Look at the rhetoric behind the innumerable crusades behind the next inane example of gender inequality and you will see this at work.

Women are every bit as capable as men, and all differential outcomes are due to the differences in the way the genders are treated- that is to say men are treated better.

You better believe it or you are a misogynist.

The truth of the matter is, they are half-right. Men as a group do tend to show higher levels of dominance, performance and excellence in many fields than women, not to mention earning accolades for doing so, a fact that has always caused much hand-wringing to those who believe in fempowerment. This is indeed due to the fact that men are treated differently from women, but not because they are treated better but rather, because they are treated worse.

Men achieve more excellence than women as a group because they are treated worse.

It’s something you will never be able to get your average progfemliberal to admit, because to do so goes deeply against several decades of established feminist dogma. But contradicting dogma isn’t the only concern they have, the corollary of this truth suggests that in order to get women to perform better, we actually need to treat them as badly as men.

It’s something that is more than enough to make your average feminist flip out.

But it’s true. The rhetorical sleight of hand that progressives use in order to disguise this truth is to simply look at the differences in outcomes between the genders at attribute differences to the preferential treatment of the male side instead of truly examining why things are this way. They follow on by concluding that what is needed is preferential treatment for females in order to achieve the same outcomes, ignoring a good chunk of reality that of points out success isn’t an entitlement and most men have to suffer in order to achieve it.

Why are men stronger in general? Biology aside they don’t have the option of getting to rely on another gender to do the heavy lifting for them. Why do they earn more as a group? They don’t have the option that women have in eventually opting out of the workforce in marriage to a beta provider.

A woman’s value is intrinsic, and not tied to how well she performs. For all the talk of empowering women we still see this mentality very much in play. There is no need to prove female value, it is assumed.

On the other hand, a man is not considered one until he proves himself to be so under tangible metrics. A man who declares he is valuable as a man simply for existing is laughed at. In order to earn the respect of soceity he needs to make something for himself.

There is no safety net for a man. It is do or die. Suck it up and suffer. Bring home the bacon or be disqualified. It is in this environment where most men who are worthy of anything noteworthy have earned their respect.

In contrast, progressives ask us to assume that we already need to celebrate all women for successes that exceptions aside they have mostly not earned as a group. Any failure is not assumed to the result of personal flaws on the part of the woman but rather the machinations of external factors working to sabotage and oppress women.

The progressive method to female excellence is to roll out the red carpet with a wagonload of affirmative action and gender-equality quotas, thinking that this 5-star hotel treatment they erroneously attribute to the successes of men will turn women into the successful people.

The respect of women as a successful class in the fields traditionally earned through the toil and hard work of men must be assumed. The respect of women as successful in these fields is based on convention and dogma, not actual tangible work and results. The feminists are not interested in emulating the masculine journey towards success, they just want to cut to the chase and get the results, and failing that enforce the same measure of social evaluation through convention.

Understanding this dynamic will allow you to cut through a lot of the fempowerment dogma that you see around you today and allow you to see those who peddle it for who they really are. Know that true respect cannot be demanded by convention, but earned through real tangible achievements and deeds. This is even more so important as a man in a degenerate culture that is applying the feminine model of intrinsic value to everything.
