Modern Life vs the Beta Male

Life is hard, always has been and always will be; certain sectors of a society have it tougher then then others, mostly based on station. Most of the time being poor and powerless sucks more than wealthy but wealthy and powerful people have their own sort of hardships. I see a lot of poor folk around me, most hangout, smoke weed and drink 40’s. They worry about having enough money for the month but not much else. A friend of mine has 500ish employees. He never worries about his personal money but he worries about the 500 people that rely on him for their lively hood. That’s a no shit heavy burden. A battalion commander down range has his own room, his own ride, his own driver but the lives of 750 men in his hands. The Private sleeps in the dirt, the rain and the heat but much less responsibility. The only people without hardships are the kind of people who are fucked in the head, and there are a lot of ways to be fucked in the head

Societies will always have different levels and different sorts of trials and tribulations. That’s life. Certain people will always be marginalized, treated differently and “unfairly”. These are the people on the margins. Life is hard for crack addicts and should be. Life is hard for queers, and should be. Life should not be hard the vast majority of people who do what they can to abide by the law, not harm anyone purposefully and get by on their own strengths and weakness. However, right now society is designed to hurt the majority, ie White folks most especially White men of middle and lower social economic standing, middling intelligence, middling drive, average abilities and what not. That will not last, cannot last when the most effective members of your society are intentionally hamstrung for political gain. How long it will last and how things will play out when it crashes is anyone guess, but not what I want to focus on. I want to focus on helping men in the here and now

Around these parts we mostly discuss how life is intentionally designed by feminists and the feminine imperative to make life hard for Beta Males, but much of what makes Beta Male life difficult are unintentional results of modern life. I would like to talk about the unintentionals for spell setting up a post on maintaining frame for long term game. Once we can identify problems we can produce solutions and work arounds

Most of what makes society work and civilization roll on is based on men, but civilization means those men are a level or three removed form the individual woman. Women are naturally prone toward not appreciating men more so when they do not directly benefit from the effort of a specific group of men, or one man in particular. Women also don’t do cause and effect very well, meaning if they ways the benefit from men are not direct, obvious and easily observed, they get to thinking they do not need the assistance of men. These inherit attributes of women magnify the results of modern civilization reducing the value of Beta Males( also wealthy people also tend to think this way about blue collar men so a wealthy woman is likely to really fail to understand how her comfortable life depends on men and show even less appreciation for the value of every day men). We live in a rather safe and orderly society. Low crime and “professional” policing means women do not need the protection of any particular man(brother, father, husband etc) like they would have 200 years ago. Work is not as physically demanding as it use to be and women do not need directly rely on the physical strength of men like they use to. Fork lifts have replaced manpower and a woman can run a fork lift. Elevators will bring a weeks worth of groceries up 5 flights o stairs easy enough. I know a farmer who bases who crops on what machines can do, managing a little over 700 acres damn near on his own. Modern transportation means women are not reliant on a man( husband, father, brother, uncle etc) to manage a team of horses, pull wagons free of mud, host sails, carry heavy loads on their back etc. Grocery stores mean women are not reliant on the men immediately in their life to do the heavy work of running stock and butchering large animals for meat

As the nature of work has changed, work has become effeminate. It take a strong sort of masculine mind set to be an engineer, but the work is generally done in doors, climate controlled indoors. The lady’s in the useless ass HR department do not work in vastly different physical environment then the guys creating useful products in the engineer lab three doors down. This reduces the value of work in a woman’s( and societies’) eye. She works in a office, you work in an office, your work is no big deal to her.

Most men work outside the home so their woman folk and youngins never see them be the boss, solve complex technical issues, over come leadership challenges and mange tricky social settings. It is hard for women and kids to appreciate what a Beta Male does to keep them feed and dry when its all done far away and not witnessed 1st hand. Electronic banking, debt cards and credit cards further removes work from provisions and therefore appreciation; people are generally well behaved these days so they don’t get to see their Beta Male stand up to poor behavior.

None of these things were done, as far as I know, to deliberately devalue average men, but these sort of things most certainly have. This is on top of the more commonly discussed issues of how feminism and the feminine imperative deliberately hurt Beta Males and lower their value.

Next post will be discussion on how to work around these every day sort of things

What’s the difference between a Ranger and a mule? A mule knows when to give up.

Some have a mistaken idea I am superman and I can do things other men cannot. Horseshit. My advantage in this world is being dumber then a mule. I have failed to achieve practically every goal I set. Sometimes because of my own inabilities. Sometimes because of events somewhat beyond my control. Mostly a combination of the two. My marriage went to shit because I elected to listen to my ex-wife’s minor complaints and the church men giving me advice. I didn’t fight in the UFC. I stopped three rounds with my chest instead, but I cannot say for certain getting shot was the only reason. Getting shot dropped me from the pinnacle of special operations down to being a grunt. Lower down the food chain then where I started. I ended up loving the job and greatly respecting the average ass in the grass, dick in the dirt grunt but that was a bad time for me. I lost my family, my job and my pro sports dream at one time. I failed to total elite in power lifting and failed at turning pro in strongman. I never learned to surf with any degree of skill. I have never broken 11 seconds in the quarter mile despite my car being able to do so. Most of the girls I have wanted to stick around walked, cheated or turned into bitches.

I made it through the Ranger Indoctrination Program and Sniper School as a first time go. I bombed my very 1st mission in Ranger School and had to repeat two phases because of injuries. I fucked up and was sent home the 1st time I tried out for a SMU. I took the ass chewing, asked what I need to do to improve, followed their advice and made it 6 months later. I barely qualified on pistols and my lack of pistol skillz is still a running joke. I was terrified of water until Combat Divers Course

I have PTSD from 12 years of marriage, not combat. As bad as I thought my marriage was or losing my health, family, career and dreams of fighting in the UFC, losing my brother has been worse. I struggle everyday with that one and always will.

Physically I am a wreck; my lung capacity is 43% of normal. Fat kids are in better shape than me and I am exhausted all the time and always will be because I struggle to breath. I have been blown up 7 times with the corresponding traumatic brain injuries. That’s a fucking bitch to deal with. I have to constantly evaluate my mental state; am I correct or being pig stubborn? Am I remembering this event correctly? Most days I cannot recall the basic background information of my life without serious mental effort. Middle school stuff can stump and frustrated. I have scars from knife wounds. I have been told I’d never lift, run etc again more times than I can count. I have dislocated my hip twice and walk with a cane. Not frequently but I keep one in my car just in case. I cannot hear for shit in social settings and should use a hearing aide but I am too vain. Hearing lose is a real hit to your life. My big toe and pinky toe got crushed and are now twisted to the left, fucking up my stride. My heart burn is severe and keeps me up most nights. I have torn my left bicep three times; my right twice; my right and left pec and tore my quads so bad the doc said I’d use a walker for the rest of my life.

I am short which is a huge disadvantage. I have always known this. My high school foot ball team won the State championship twice. I started as a freshmen, was voted MVP twice. Lead the state two years in tackles and sacks. I didn’t carry the ball much, but I made 1st downs and touchdowns. I did the short yardage game and played defensive end. I also played special teams. Normally my only break was half time. While bigger men with worse stats were talking about college ball, I knew I was too short and scouts told me so. Research says short men are disadvantaged in all aspects of life. For whatever oddness of my bio chemistry, I get sick and weak if my body fat gets much below 14% and carry it all around my gut. My IQ is 106. Pedestrian in every way. I am not mentally lazy. I devoted countless hours to studying. Most on practical matters, though I have my flights of fancy. I wasted time on philosophy before calling it all bullshit and sticking with the Stoics. My morality is a practical matter as well; what makes me, my kin and my tribe strong, free, prosperous etc is morally correct. Whatever weakness us is immoral, what weakens our enemies is a positive. I have seen too much of the world to believe in the softer, womanish version of morality. I am not immoral or amoral; my morality is based on the advancement of my clan and kin. Only fools fail to see the tribal warfare surrounding us

Right after my divorce, alimony, child support and paying her bills left me $300 a week. Not to mention all the emotional bullshit. My relationship with my parents is a constant battle, same with my daughter. After my brother died, I brought my sister in law and my nieces in my house, my sister in law repaid this by turning on me. The list can go on and on, but the point isn’t to catalog my grievances with the world. All these words are to set up this one statement.

If I am in any way “special” or “superior “or better than some other man, it is because I don’t give up. I get off the ground and back to fighting in a fucking hurry. I trained myself to do this. I did nothing but get my ass kicked when 1st learning to box. My old man told me the only thing I can control is me, how hard I fight, how fast I get off the floor. I do that with everything. I would rather be dead then broken and bowed down to another. That is a decision any man can make, a mindset any man can develop, if he has the determination to do so. The notion that somehow most men cannot achieve this relentless level of masculinity is bullshit. It also does a disservice to the men who have achieved XYZ. It’s very much a liberal mindset, linking success to some kind genetic lottery vs hard work and brass balls( and genes. We all do have our natural limits). All liberal mindsets are self-limiting and defeatist in nature, because liberalism is founded on tearing men down vs building them up. Building a better beta has a foot in each camp and will fail like all half measures will. Who dares wins. Not who sort of dares sort of wins

Any man can be determined and determination wins the long game of life. Especially when coupled with a disregard for the laws of men. When I was broke and had to choose between chow or running the a/c I got pissed and sold moonshine and steroids to earn cash. The Almighty God forbids neither. Most laws are written to keep beaten men down, to eliminate competition for the elites and keep them on top. I am a sinner and a crappy Christian but I am a man of God. The only laws I give a damn about are His. Laws of men are generally unworthy of respect and for damn certain when they do not match God’s laws or our ancient traditional view of justice, honor and correct masculine action. And I men ancient. Not some 1950’s womanish version of the concept. Following the law simply because it’s the law is slavish.

I am mentally and physically tougher then the most of men but I wasn’t born this way. I trained myself to be these things. I started off as 9 pounds of squalling baby flesh as everyone else. The difference between me and some other dude is I started training myself at an early age. You will never be more than a beta, useful tool of women and the State unless you put your ass on the line, get it kicked and get back up to get beat down again, and again. But don’t be a dumb ass about it. You don’t climb Mt Everest’s on your 1st day of hiking.

If you want to be the man, be the fucking man. It is your decision, but it isn’t easy. You will carry the scars on your body, mind and soul, but I promise you, it’s worth every scar, every moment of pain and suffering because the joys are savage and beyond words to describe. Unrepentant, relentless and unreconstructed masculinity is God’s second greatest gift and held exclusively for men. He set us above women, animals and all else on this earth to take dominion over all things but Himself and this gift is how. We are the men who protect the tribe and push it to the heights of achievement. Not the beta who follows the script. Betas are supporting roles; which is important but they are also playing the supporting role in their own life; letting life happen to them vs them happening to life. Being beta is safe and easy, being a man is dangerous and painful. It means freeing yourself from false constraints. Being this kind of man is neither moral nor immoral. Your actions determine that.

The great minds of Western Civilization are the other side of the same coin. Newton, Edison etc are the mental version of men like me. Relentless and unwavering in their quest to expand knowledge, thereby expanding himself and be default, his tribe. The mindset and frame is the same; the playing field is different. These men are to be respected

This last bit, I have no idea how to work it in, but I have been accused of being nihilistic. Another load of horseshit. There is no part of my life that fits the definition as I understand the term. I own houses, engage in business ventures, mentor young men, tend to my kin, support two political causes, rescue dogs, help my buddy with his horse rescue stuff, support a charity that supports SpecOps veterans and their family. I don’t believe our social ills will self correct and think men should focus their efforts on other things (building their family’s strength) but I do not waste much of my money, time, effort or the natural talents and abilities I was blessed with. Doesn’t seem any part of nihilism to me

But I get this kind of bullshit pretty often. My theory is, masculinity has been so watered down men no longer recognize it and most fear it.

Motorcycles are alpha

Motorcycles are alpha, or so the world tells me. I have been on dirt bikes and motorcycles my whole life so while extremely enjoyable, they aren’t a big deal to me, However, when thinking about it, they are most assuredly alpha. They are inherently more dangerous then cars and trucks and risk taking equals masculinity.  Bikes require an ability to endure the elements. You have to endure sun and heat, small rocks and large bugs to the face, being pelted with the rain while doing 55 mph and fight the 85 mph wind trying to push you backwards for hours at a time.  It takes a higher degree of skill and situational awareness to be on a bike. Being on a bike sets you apart from the herd and in some ways defies society’s expectations and norms. Those are alpha traits all day long, but more then possessing any of those masculine traits, being on a bike demonstrates those things. Women are not subtle, generally speaking and most displays of masculinity need to be overt. Not in a boorish or frat boy manner, not when you are 43 or 33, but they cannot leave room for doubt because doubting is what women do. Doubt feeds her hamster and the damn thing is large enough

Bikes don’t get you laid. Bikes get you noticed and getting noticed gets you laid. Most girls know nothing about bikes and in very real ways it doesn’t matter what you ride as long as you are on a sport bike or cruiser. Your Vespa, adventuring/ touring/dual sport or enduro bike looks awkward and goofy. Trikes…. are for old fat guys with old fat chicks. Can Am Spyper’s  are for middle age dudes who lack the sack to get on two wheels. That Rebel 250 is great on gas, and fun to ride in its own right but looks like something she has seen the teaming unwashed masses in China ride. Sport bikes looks fast, agile, athletic. Masculine traits women dig. Cruisers look…. a lot of of things, all of them powerful and masculine. I like cruisers with saddle bags, wing screens, highway pegs, heel toe shifter…. Big, heavy, powerful and comfy to be on for hours a day.

Sport bikes vs cruisers, which one gets you noticed the most? Its a bullshit question. Different girls are going to be into different kinds of bikes. Sport bikes might have the edge in urban settings, I don’t know, but I can tell you no college girl has turned up her nose because I was on a cruiser. If she did, I reckon its more about my over all vibe vs what she likes then the bike. Sport bikes are seen as more urban, young, yuppyish if you will. Your bike needs to match you and your style. If its out of place, chicks will pick up on that. They can smell try harder like sharks smell blood. I think cruisers have one advantage over sports bikes, Comfort for the girl when she is on back.

Brands. Most girls are not going to give a damn what brand ride. I own two Harley’s, sort of the gold standard for brand recognition in the usa, but the girls don’t care unless they are into bikes in her own right and stuck on status symbols at the same time. A small number indeed. In all my years I have seen one girl stuck on a brand and that was Ducati. She said they were orgasms on wheels. She seemed to like my cruiser well enough…….  Bikes don’t need to be customized or even in great condition. Guys on rat rod style bikes get a lot of attention, guys on custom bikes get a lot of attention, guys on sports bikes get a lot….. Got the point?

Besides demonstrating masculine traits a bike brings you three other tangible SMP advantages. #1 you always have something to do on a date. I’ve not yet meet the girl who wasn’t ok with a 30 mile ride for milkshakes as a date. My bike gets 32 miles to the gallon and milkshakes aren’t expensive either. You can extend that out as well.  #2, it gives you something to talk about. When all else fails and you need to keep a conversation going, you can always talk about your last ride, getting stuck in the rain or a close call you avoided with your skills and dare doing. Lastly it gives her something to crow about when she is talking to her gal pals about you. She tells them she rode to the next town over on the back of a bike and suddenly she is an adventurer and you’re romantic and spontaneous.
