Review of My Guesses for 2017

 

This is it!

My Last official act of 2017. This is the one where I look back at this article

https://theredpillnation.wordpress.com/2017/01/09/my-guesses-for-2017/

And we look at how well or how badly I did. I’ll admit I did review this article a couple of weeks back and it didn’t look like I’d done all that badly. Unlike last year when Donald Trump threw a wrench into the guessing this year no such thing occurred. But I know for a fact I got some of the guesses wrong and I think I bombed out on a couple of them. Like I said I’m doing this again and writing down the results as they appear. So while I think I did well I could’ve stunk up the joint.

Let’s the massacre of my supposed high intelligence begin!

  1. People hold their breath for President Donald Trump

Yeah, there’s one that didn’t happen! Antifa Riots, Million woman march and open declaration of war by Feminists and Regressives. trump-4-805x452

Yep, the regressives didn’t even wait for Donald Trump to make a mistake they just went ahead and started attacking blindly. In fact, it was speculated that if this was what it was going to be like for the next four years well…god help us all.

People did calm down, Antifa lost its teeth but the attacks on Trump continue.

But for this guess BOY did I ever get this one wrong!

The Establishment may attempt to distract us from the ever-widening internal culture war with an outside distraction.

There was some talk about North Korea, there were the usual (ever increasing) terrorist attacks in Europe and a bombing in Syria. The Administration didn’t attempt to ramp up any wars and neither did the Regressives attempt to throw any crumbles and bobbles our way for us to look at. They went and stayed on the offensive to the best of their ability. At least until their credibility also started to take serious hits.

In hindsight the mainstream media and the establishment wanted us to pay attention to them this year. They got what they wanted and now they’re in free fall just like the rest of the regressives are.

But for the sake of this blog, wrong again. Mostly because 1 and 2 are tied together to make it so.

 3. Transparent attempts to crack down or censor the internet mainly alternative news sites.

YES! Got one right and boy did I ever hammer this one out the ballpark.

What stands out for me most though is the intentional lying about Pewdiepie

Got this one right (Finally)

 4. Gamergate (or a form of it) is not dead back for round #2

Comicgate…Nuff said

Or you can just go to The Quartering to see what’s happening with Wizards of the Coast at the moment.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfwE_ODI1YTbdjkzuSi1Nag

Either way, I nailed this one!

  5. A Watering down of the Manosphere in general

This one is kind of hard to prove. MGTOW.com became the second largest site in the manosphere and A Voice for Men returned to its old prominence. More MGTOW, MRA, Red Pill, PUA etc sites got started up. An increase in size and attention will mean a larger variety of opinion thus a watering down. Nothing unexpected here so I’ll give myself a yes here.

6. A rise in the extreme right inside the movement

I saw more Anti-Semitism this year than I had in the five years before. I had one of these guys start to follow me around the manosphere to keep justifying his beliefs to me. I personally had to declare that any jew bashing (Anti-Semitism) on my Facebook group would get you booted. You know it’s getting out of control when guys like Turd Flinging Monkey have to start making videos specifically addressing this issue.

The comments section got so bad here that YouTube had to shut down both comments and ratings. Like I said in my guesses for 2018 blog, this is the ugly stepchild of the manosphere and it needs to be dealt with SOON!

Got this one right though.

7. More prominent divisions rising inside the Manosphere

The rise of the Alt-Right is proof enough for that. We also had people on our side attacking each other. There was a row between Candace Owens and Computing Forever

There was also another one that appears to have removed Kraut and Tea from the YouTube community for now too.

Just to make it clear on both of these people. Candace Owens took down Social Autopsy for me that’s sufficient. Dave Cullen had a higher standard and it’s his channel so he has the right to say that there. Kraut and Tea on the other hand? I wasn’t involved never really followed it. I liked most of what Kraut and Tea did and I hope he comes back. Don’t know enough about what happened to make a call on it.

I can say I got this one right 5 for 7 now, not bad considering how badly I tanked at the start!

   8. Attacks on MGTOW happen with more frequency and ferocity

Well first we had this

Both of these stupid idiots started their channels in 2017. But for more example, we had this and a few others post up as well

This particular video got torn to shreds in the comments not to mention Turd Flinging Monkey did an epic takedown of this video.

Now this guy was really disappointing because he usually has an idea what he’s talking about

The real disappointment here was how he pinned this to the top of this video.

Styxnhammer

Yeah I pretty much say I got this one right

9. I’m not a Feminist or I’m not and/or antifeminist pronouncements rise quickly

This actually tapered off in 2017. Never mind that it’s picked up in a large way at the start of 2018. In 2017 this didn’t happen, likely because Feminists were more active and got more than a little help from the mainstream media

Got this one wrong

  10. Yet ANOTHER months-long period of feminist and/or SJW stupidity

There were moments where it looked like there was going to be something like this. The Mainstream Media though did engage in epic levels of stupidity and did have periods where they did the same thing that other branches of the regressive community did.

Does the mainstream media count as SJW? I’m going to give myself a tentative yes on this. Again though as the start of 2018 has indicated the regressives seem hell bound to lose all the ground they gained in 2017.

1/2 point on this one

11. Very clear signs that Feminism is losing 

Had the year ended before Harvey Weinstein got taken down it was really starting to look like this was going to happen.

09xp-weinstein-master768-v3

Once this happened Feminists moved in a took Hollywood without much of fight, even going so far as to set up a potential McCarthy like commission to investigate sexual abuse in Hollywood

Now once again it appears as though Feminists have managed to shoot themselves in the foot as 2018 started. This MAY prevent the sexual misconduct commission from becoming too authoritarian too quickly. Or they may attempt to speed this up because of events that started, time will tell.

Now since this is about 2017 and not 2018 I’m going to have to go wrong about this one.

 12. Things start getting violent

I’m just going to post up a few things about Antifa and let them speak for themselves

Battle of Berkeley

 

Yeah I know, sorry just had to post this.

Granted Antifa had lost most of their Mojo by mid-year. The violence didn’t extend through the entire year of 2017. Something for which I think we can all be grateful for. 2018 feels like a different beast, more like a kettle bomb going off from pressure at some point.

So yes I did get this one right, glad it slowed down towards mid-year though.

 13. Outrageous and Blatant Lies

From the mainstream media? Oh hell yes absolutely!

I mean there are so many examples of it that I couldn’t possibly post all the content so here’s a link to it instead

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Mainstream+Media+Lies+2017

14. Members of the various SJW factions start getting in trouble

Didn’t happen there were moments where it happened but you didn’t see the long hemorrhaging that had occurred inside regressive circles brought on by their own stupidity in 2017. UNLESS you cover mainstream news that’s another story altogether. For the sake of argument, I’m just going to put the mainstream media in the regressive camp here. They took the shots that the other factions couldn’t and probably wouldn’t have been able to take in 2017. As a result, they now are starting to find themselves in the same boat as them. If 2018 is any indication of 2017 for them it’s going to be a LONG year.

And oh yes got this one right

15. Bill Cosby Trial! 

Harvey Weinstein ended up being the goat that Bill Cosby was supposed to be. The Cosby trial was a virtual non-event. Luckily (If you’re a feminist) Harvey fell into the void quite nicely. He provided the impetus and push that Feminism had at the end of 2017 to pretty much take Hollywood and to destroy more than a few careers in the process. The price paid for doing this was totally unexpected though. It wasn’t anyone on the Deplorable side of the fence that got taken down. Instead, Feminists fed on their own that strategy of cannibalizing their own allies though appears to caught up to them already.

So yeah it sort of happened just not with the person I thought it was going to trigger it with. So I sort of got this one right in the actions but not the person.

  16. Virtue Signal Failure

Not as much as in 2016! But then again it would be very hard to ever duplicate 2016. Although based on what I’ve seen so far in 2018 it might be quite easily exceeded.

This one was going to be a pretty safe yes.

  17. Call on Donald Trump to be impeached or resign by the end of summer

Full History here

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Efforts_to_impeach_Donald_Trump

Impeach Trump

Yep got this one right. In fact, there was another attempt made just a few days ago.

  18. A Hard Right or Nationalist party wins a country (Or two) in Europe this year. 

Czech Election Won by Anti-Establishment Party Led by Billionaire

Well now, Thank You, Andrej Babis for getting the win for me!

So how did I do? 13 1/2 out of 18 75% well now not bad for a bunch of guesses. I want to discuss more though on how I went wrong and how no matter how accurate any kind of model is, even one where I’m just picking what I think and feel are the most likely reactions based on previous experience. Events can sometimes take strange twists. Or like what happened when Donald Trump put a wrench into a lot of my guesses in 2016 the actions of one individual can and do count.

What did I get wrong and why did I get them wrong in my not so humble opinion

Number 1 I got wrong because I assumed incorrectly that there would be the usual honeymoon period for Donald Trump nothing of the sort happened. In fact with a little hindsight it appears as though a lot of what occurred might have been artificially inflated

Number 2 I got wrong because I assumed once all the insanity got started it would escalate quickly. It didn’t in fact it came in two sections one at the start of the year from Antifa and the back end being provided by Feminism. North Korea had some moments for Donald Trump and the Administration but they didn’t use this to distract from the homeland

North Korea

Number 9 I got wrong there were a couple of factors. One being the move by social media sites to crack down on political wrong think. Another one was the apparent resurgence of feminism at the end of 2017. There’s also a case of a upswing will eventually top off. That doesn’t mean that they won’t start jumping on the wagon again in fact I’ve seen evidence of this starting in 2018

Number 10 I got wrong because while it did happen I didn’t expect that it would be the mainstream media and not the groups I expected.

Number 11 Never in my imagination did I ever expect that Feminists would devour their own allies for such a fleeting and temporary victory. Like I said before they captured Hollywood but have likely sped up their own demise

So I did OK, good thing nobody followed my guesses though I mean 75% is pretty good and worth a victory lap or two. I think it shows that my guesses can and should be taken with a grain of salt.

Guesses for 2018!

Each year in the manosphere is affected by the one that came before it! The enormous pushback by regressives in particular feminists was a reaction to the thrashing that Feminism and Regressives took in 2016

 

 

 

 

It wasn’t all that unexpected that there was going to be pushback in 2017. It started out with the Trump Protest and the open and blatant announcement by Ashley Judd

21-womens-march-dc-crowd.w710.h473.2x

We all suspected what was coming and it did. One friend of mine mid-year suggested that 2017 was like The Empire Strikes Back. Now he said that as a comparison only to have someone wave a sign proclaiming Feminism Strikes Back in December of 2017

US-POLITICS-TRUMP-INAUGURATION-PROTEST

Yeah, your eyes ain’t fooling you. This woman likened feminism to the Evil Empire and did so unabashedly.

Now I’m not going to get into a huge review of 2017 here that’s for another blog post which will also likely be up before the end of the year. Probably more than at any time since I got involved in the Manosphere is a year being so dictated by events that came before it. Each year generally has it’s stand-alone topics. The surprising emergence of Donald Trump and Brexit in 2016 for instance. 2018 though appears to be following a path that’s already been laid out for it. And that’s probably where I should start out with

My Guesses for 2018

As usual, no horoscopes, tarot cards, charts, graphs, crystal balls or any other form of divination used here. Just one guy looking at what’s going on and proceeding down the time tunnel and taking a somewhat informed guess as to what will happen. Of course, this means I’ll be wrong about some of these, but damn I like writing this article at the end of the year.

1. 2018 The Culture War Gets Hot

Culture War

2017 saw the Battle of Berkely, The Million Woman March, The Adpocalypse, Vidcon, #metoo, etc. Starting in late November 2017 we began to see #metoo begin to fray around the edges as feminists like Emily Lindin openly announced that they didn’t care about innocent men. Emily Lindin

We also saw women openly call out people like Emily Lindin publicly for the first time. These women weren’t Honey Badgers either. Yes, folks, a major FEMALE celebrity spoke out openly against feminism

Tomi Lahren

How do you want me to say this? Despite all of the alleged ‘gains’ made by feminists in 2017 they haven’t actually silenced or taken anyone out. They did manage to wound Milos Yiannopoulos but other than that nobody on our side of the fence got taken down. Seattle for Truth is headed for jail but that isn’t because of Feminist activism and Ethan Ralph is currently in prison but will be out early in 2018. Feminist males though were tossed under the bus in droves and from what I’ve been able to digest. Even men that were on the sidelines when it comes to this are now acutely aware that any woman from any time can come back with an allegation and ruin everything. If you think that won’t bring in more people to the manosphere then you’re deluded. So we’re stronger, so are they but they had to cannibalize themselves to do it.

Bottom line here is that now The Manosphere itself is growing and is now also aware and getting organized to hit back.

2. Silent Winter

Here’s the irony of all that wrote above. Feminists/SJW’s think they did well this year. I’m going to lay good odds that unlike the two or three previous years this year they’ll take a breath or two before coming out. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me that they’re relatively quiet until it’s time to start gearing up for the 2018 Mid-Terms in the US or…

3. Hey, you bastards I’m still here!

Hey you bastards

At some point in 2018, it’s going to dawn on Regressives, specifically Feminists that all those men they supposedly took out of the picture in 2017 weren’t the ones that counted. They’ll figure out that we’re still here and very much in the fight. When this does happen they’ll also realize that something else is also happening

4. #Metoo Starts to slow down and backfire

This started out well for feminists. This was the event that they had been waiting for to come out screaming and yelling as loudly as they can. Ironically enough I thought it was going to be Bill Cosby, not Harvey Weinstein that would be the cause of it. Not only that they didn’t even wait for any kind of legal verdict, they simply tried him via the media

It should be noted that Bill Cosby’s new trial is currently slated for April this year

Bill Cosby’s Retrial For 2004 Rape Gets Official April 2018 Start Date – Update

This though isn’t the main problem Jeremy Piven was accused and passed a lie detector test.

jeremypiven2-2

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5100023/Mr-Selfridge-star-Jeremy-Piven-passes-lie-detector-test.html

We already have feminists on the record that they don’t care about false accusations. These false accusations will start to pile up. Now in 2017 the media could pony up and cover up these shortcomings.

The mainstream media will ignore false accusations, the alternative media though won’t. This takes me to my next guess.

5. The Mainstream Media takes a serious run at the Alternate Media

Let’s not kid ourselves here the mainstream media is clearly starting to falter. In 2017 there was a long series of situations where the mainstream (cathedral) media dropped the ball with facts or in some cases outright lied.

This is likely going to continue, stories will get more desperate and less fact-based as ratings continue to go down and credibility continues to drop. You may even see a 2015/16 Feminist style bleeding out as one network then another constantly puts its foot in its mouth. While the alternative/internet media will continue to grow. With US midterms coming up later in the year, these organizations will be left with very little choice but to outright smear alternative media.

6. Alternative media starts to surge

This really isn’t shouldn’t be all that big of a surprise to anyone who reads this. This group is already doing well and will get even better as the year progresses. In fact, all that’ll really happen when mainstream media starts coming after them is that they’ll simply acquire more viewership. This tends to happen when you’re by and large reporting the truth as opposed to being a mouthpiece for the corrupt establishment. The Alternative media won’t be the only group that gets stronger and larger as the year progresses

7. All the Groups in the “Manosphere” Get Larger

Be they MRA, PUA, MGTOW, Red Pill, Anti Feminists, Anti SJW’s etc all of them should grow by leaps and bounds in 2018. You may have missed this but A Voice For Men has recently gone back to the numbers they had at the end of 2015. The MRM is far from dead no matter how many people in MGTOW say it is. avoiceformen.com 112817

That’s not to say that MGTOW and MRA’s are in a fight with each other. There’s a substantial amount of overlap between the two. Depending on the man and in some cases the woman, the group that most fits their preference will be the one they sign on with. It’s when these groups start getting larger than some of the so-called established sites for men that people will really start noticing.

8. MGTOW faces serious attacks

Up until now, MGTOW has been for the most part considered a fringe group. This is going to change as 2018 progresses. There are a number of reasons why MGTOW is arguably the most disliked faction inside the manosphere. I did a whole YouTube video as to why.

You have to keep in mind that this isn’t just going to be MGTOW that’ll be taking the heat. There’s going to be desperate attempts to tie all of these groups to less liked more radical factions fighting against the establishment.

http://money.cnn.com/2017/11/10/technology/culture/divided-we-code-red-pill/index.html

Although I’m not a huge fan of the Red Pill subreddit they had a response to the CNN piece

Expect a lot more of this.

9. Gearing up for Mid-Terms

All of these attacks you’re going to see? There’s a reason for them, that reason should be as obvious as the nose on your face. 2018 is a Mid-Term year, Democrats and Anti Trumpers everywhere want to focus on getting a majority in the house and/or The Senate. They won’t make any bones about why either they want to impeach Trump. Now at this point, it’s hard for me to guess which way these elections will go. No matter which way they go there’s a serious possibility that they’ll be in an unwinnable position. You see even if they do succeed in capturing the house it’ll still require time to get an impeachment going. Donald Trump though isn’t the only player on the board. The Regressives by the fall of 2018 may not have the cultural capital left to take on both Trump and the ‘Deplorables’ at the same time.

171229130634-donald-trump-12-15-2017-full-169

If they do get control of the House then most of their energy will be put into his impeachment. Which won’t succeed if they fail assassination isn’t out of the question as the situation with the regressives continues to deteriorate in 2018.

10. Culture war gets hotter

Magic The Gathering, Comic Books, Hollywood, MetalGate even some of the lesser-known artistic groups either have or will reach tipping points in regards to Cultural Marxists telling them how to conduct themselves. More of these groups are going to organize and start fighting back as 2018 rolls on.

11. Hollywood starts to feel the heat

Hollywood_Sign_(Zuschnitt)

This sexual misconduct investigation will likely morph into something closer to the 50’s style of McCarthyism that saw performers and creators career ruined. The level of originality and creativity is already at an all-time low in Hollywood will continue to go down. But not before there’s a brief and hopeful soft bounce upwards as more female directors will get their chance later on in 2018.

Oceans8

What you’re likely to see is more Feminist style grandstanding and the new powers in Hollywood learn nothing from what happened to the Video Game, Comic Book, Spec Fiction and MTG power players have or will find out. That it’s not a very good idea to insult or lecture your potential audience

Ironic that it was just 30 years ago that we were LOLing at the Russians and Eastern Bloc’s lack of creativity and dullness. But if you look at some of the fashion shows you’ve seen recently you may have noticed a trend.

Here’s the frightening part they’re taking themselves very seriously just like in The Wendy’s commercial I posted up earlier.

12. At least one of the Hollywood Studios gets in financial trouble

You really need to take a look at some of the movies coming out. Some of them are pretty interesting. There’s one though that stinks to high heaven of flop months before it even comes out

http://boundingintocomics.com/2018/01/05/every-single-superhero-movie-coming-2018/9/

Secret Warriors

This movie has all those characters that Diversity and Comics and Capn Cummings have been warning about for the past few months. Instead of simply getting the message after what 5-6 Captain Marvel restarts and how immensely unpopular other characters like Squirrel Girl and America Chavez are, instead, they’re doing this. This is what it says in the article about this movie

“Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors will star Spider-Gwen who will now go by Ghost-Spider as she teams up with Quake, America Chavez, Squirrel Girl, Captain Marvel, Inferno, Ms. Marvel, Patriot, and Glory to take on the villainous Kree Accuser Hala.

The script is being written by Mairghread Scott and will feature some top voice talent including Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. veterans Chloe Bennet and Ming-Na Wen. It will also star Dove Cameron, Tyler Posey, BooBoo Stewart, Kathreen Khavari, Milana Vayntrub, Cierra Ramirez, Kamil McFadden, Skai JacksFron, and Kim Raver.

The digital film is set to launch sometime in 2018.”

Yep, I can hear the SJW’s screaming sexism and not learning a thing about Ghostbusters and likely Oceans 8. You’ll see them do all sorts of intelligent things, like insult and berate the regular moviegoers, virtue signal the living fuck out this. And of course, when it falls down like a lead balloon they’ll blame everyone but themselves for it.

In short, one of the studios will get bought out and there may well be more than just one. This will have an interesting bleed over effect.

13. Comicgate will heat up and the SJW’s will wilt under the heat

This probably won’t surface until near the end of the year. Truth has a way of winning out in the end anyway. But if the right studio, or in this case the wrong studio starts to go under the new owners are going to likely demand a profit of some kind for their investment. This will mean that crappy stories and characters being put out by Marvel will have to stop because shitty comics don’t sell, and new investors are not going to be happy with sales by Marvel at all.

So in effect, Comicgate will expire the same way Gamergate did. The regressives will shoot themselves in the foot. It started to unwind for the SJW’s in Gamergate when Anita Sarkeesian did her Nightline appearance.

https://theredpillnation.wordpress.com/2015/02/20/anita-sarkessian-makes-her-big-mistake/

One curious effect of her Nightline appearance is that it exposed how few people supported her. It’s also very likely in the case of Comicgate that the power of SJW’s in comics is because nobody knows exactly how many people are SJW’s and how many are not. I posted up a YouTube video called The Spaces In Between covering this

 

This though will not be the only place where things start to go south for the regressives.

14. Title IX legislation and the meltdown on campuses

We saw what happened at Missouri and Evergreen State

There will be more events like in 2018, in fact, I’m guessing many more. It reached the point in 2017 where on professor lost her job because of her racist views.

Ironically she got fired from a noted LIBERAL and BLACK UNIVERSITY! I mean you have to be pretty damn bad to have that happen to you. Cracks are going to start showing up everywhere in academia this year and it’ll be beyond the ability of the Mainstream media to put out all the fires or even ignore them as their credibility takes hit after hit this year.

This spring will also be the first group graduating that had Donald Trump as their president for a full year. There should at the very least be active discussion of curtailing and maybe even eliminating Title IX altogether

Let me make this clear despite all the bleating you’ll see from Soy Boys and Feminists on this issue. I was recently told that there are currently over 200 Title IX lawsuits pending against various academic institutions in the United States. If even just a small percentage of those lawsuits is successful, and the law of averages suggests that some of them will be. The need for Academia to reform Title IX simply to protect themselves from potential lawsuits will be enough to send it down the tubes.

Betsy DeVos is actually saving modern academia by doing what she’s doing. It’s a shame that Regressives can’t see that their goose is literally cooked on this, and it’s really only a matter of time before it happened anyway.

This though may not be the biggest hit academia takes this year, or even the biggest hit regressives take all year.

15. Stage Four event happens!

There are Eight stages of a Movement

http://www.returnofkings.com/27956/the-8-stages-all-movements-go-through

Now whether you like Bill Moyers politics or not isn’t relevant here. We’ve been sitting on stage 3 now for close to Five years since Donglegate.

Donglegate

Late in the year especially if the Democrats are unable to win the house and thus the Regressives have to stare into an ever-widening abyss where their political and cultural capital has been depleted. This is when someone will get desperate. This desperation will likely be the event that triggers Stage 4. It’ll likely be something very small on a campus, maybe in a blue state. It may not even happen in the US it may happen out of the country. The other shoe will drop the one that Feminists have been afraid would drop. One of them will simply push things a little too far.

We all know what happens after that! The fire that has been slowly getting hotter and hotter as 2018 has been progressing will ignite. There will be all sorts of ramifications from this, far too many here for me to write about. The chances of this happening in this calendar year are 50/50 NEVER have the odds been so good. If by some chance we do get out of 2018 without stage 4 happening. The odds get greater as time goes by as does the chance for a full-on civil war.

16. BLM and reverse racism slowly fade but Anti-Semitism raises its large ugly head

Black Lives Matter lost it’s patron when Barrack Obama left office. With Barrack Obama not needing a diversion like BLM to keep the focus off him, it started a long slow decline which will continue into 2018.

As much as I’d like to celebrate this fact there’s just one problem. Anti Semites have followed the same track we’re using to fight regressives to reawaken an old forgotten issue namely attacks on Jews. I’ve seen more Anti Semitism online in the last 6 months than I did in the previous 5 years. I’ve even had one of them actively follow me online to keep yelling at me. Something that I had only encountered from an Atheism Plus acolyte.

This is the ugly stepchild of the whole movement. These people do more to prove the regressives right than anything else we do. If this group isn’t either removed or muted in some way these people could defeat everything we’ve been fighting for.

17. Increased Tension in Europe

As it currently sits the Regressives ‘won’ in France and Germany. The only problem with this in that in both cases the winning party now has to deal with an opposition that won’t allow them to put the Islamic issue under the carpet. Blatant attempts in Europe are being made to prevent the immigrant issue from getting out into the mainstream. Like calling the new crop of rioters on New Years Eve men or people instead of Immigrants

Belgium, Ireland, Hungary, Italy, Finland, Russia and late in the year Sweden all have elections scheduled this year. Each of them are going to situations where. The Regressives are going to be grinding their teeth as they watch their hold, not just on power but their ability to control information slip away from them.

You combine this with the United States Mid Terms we’re probably going to get a clear picture of where things are headed by Mid Year and will definitely know what’s afoot by the end of 2018

So How Does the Year Look?

It’s going to start out slowly. Unlike 2016 when Feminists and SJW’s took an absolute mauling. In 2017 they think they did well because they took Hollywood and exposed a whole bunch of evil men to the world.

In truth what they did is cannibalize their own ranks. You may have noticed but in case you hadn’t NOT ONE of us so-called ‘Deplorables’ got taken down by the opposition this year. Male Feminists though had a really bad year.

I’ve been avoiding calling what I’m involved in a Culture War, but that’s exactly what we’re in now. Wars require a lot of things and they tend to use up a lot of resources. In this fight, there are Three things needed Cultural, Political and Financial Capital. Cultural being the most important by the end of the year. Each of these is tied together and like any war goodwill from the culture is what maintains the opposition. For us it doesn’t matter, we’re used to being the underdogs and not having the support of the population or the money to fight back in the media or swing elections etc.

A series of larger and larger brush fires will start up as 2018 goes on. Each of these will cause more damage to the Regressives, who will do like they’ve always done. Their allies and supporters in Washington, LA and New York will keep them afloat. But as these groups all start to falter under the weight of their own hubris. More desperate measures will have to be taken. By the end of 2018 or the early part of 2019, there will likely be a full scale and now very public culture war.

And then it gets ugly!

Enjoy the silence people, the embers that are going to start this off are already smoldering.

Mariah Carey Lawsuit Alleges Racism & Sexual Harassment — I,Hypocrite

Racism, it’s not just for white people, and sexual harassment, it’s not just for men anymore, at least if a former bodyguard of one of the world’s biggest diva’s is to be believed. As reported by TMZ, the owner of the singer’s former security company has alleged that Mariah humiliated him by constantly referring to…

My First Interview…Let’s Rant #25 — A MGTOW Interview

I just finished a recording where I cover some of the topics that I thought needed some additional coverage in an audio post and that I either felt I didn’t address properly or I missed/didn’t think to mention during this interview

I had to do some meditation on this interview after the fact, and once I post up My Thoughts on The Ranthony Interview, you’ll notice that I mention asking. That asking is me asking a question putting it out to the universe and getting the answer that I got. When I do this, or when anyone does this I always keep in mind that the answer I get is the answer I get. I’ll admit that in many cases the answer I get back via this meditation process isn’t always pleasant. In many cases, it’s like having to take yet another Red Pill. The information gained from such a process has always been enlightening about the issue or me in some form or another.

This is what I came up with

Angry MGTOW

Angry MGTOW

Straight up Angry MGTOW’s content never really appealed to me. That’s not to mean that I disliked or hated the guy, what I mean is that for me personally his content just wasn’t where I’m at in my life. Not only that his presentation and voice made it really hard for me to sit and watch his videos for more than a few minutes.

And then there’s his actual content

Seriously? Blaire White and ShoeOnHead Feminists? That must either be intentional click bait, or Angry MGTOW isn’t in touch with reality. What I also noticed is that anyone, and I do mean anyone that needed proof that all MGTOW were unhinged, Angry MGTOW was the go-to guy. Occasionally you’d see someone try and twist Sandman’s content around, usually that required cherry picking to make it happen.

I was asked what I was going to do about Angry MGTOW. And what was I going to do about Angry MGTOW? After my meditation, I came up with the answer of, Nothing!

Now that may sound unsatisfactory to the critics of MGTOW, allow me to explain. First of all, I’m responsible for myself and my own actions. I don’t subscribe to him, watch him or endorse him in any way. He occasionally, and do mean occasionally comes up with a compelling point, you have to sift through a lot of content to find it. I Haven’t got the time or inclination to do that. So in my case, my conscience is quite clear

Second MGTOW isn’t an organization like The Borg

Borg

MGTOW is a collection of men going along on an individual path. Yes, there are factions inside MGTOW, and some are insane some are quite sane. Beyond the principal of anti gynocentrism and a marriage strike there are few things that all MGTOW will agree on. Therefore it’s impractical and almost impossible for me or any other MGTOW on YouTube to do anything beyond saying that they limit their association with Angry MGTOW. Here’s the ultimate crux of the problem even if Angry MGTOW were to go away (Die, Stop making videos, Quit, Disappear, etc. )  There would simply be another guy like Angry MGTOW that would step into his place. So whether you like him or not he’s here! And there is a faction inside MGTOW that his rhetoric appeals to. I personally don’t associate with him, and that’s really all anyone can do.

What can be done? The MGTOW that have been through the Red Pill Rage and come out the other side. There’s a need for us to be there to help the increasing number of men that are taking the Red Pill themselves and help them through the Purple Pill phase as best we can. Some will get stuck in the Red Pill Rage, and there’s very little I or anyone else can do if a man decides to stay there. Setting this up and encouraging this will require fortitude, there are entirely too many men out there that feel that any kind of emotional expression will make him a crybaby and will treat any other man around them that does so in a harsh manner. None the less I think this needs to be done.

The Comparison to Feminism

Answering this one was pretty easy for me.

It got pointed out to me that the structure of MGTOW is very similar to the structure of Feminism. In structure MGTOW, and Feminism looks the same. The answer here is in actions, A herd of Antelope and a herd of Elephants are both herds. These mammals though are two separate species they may both socialize in herds, but they act differently. This is where the argument that MGTOW is like Feminism falls apart. Yes, a herd is a herd, but herds of different animals act and behave differently despite the fact they both herd together. MGTOW actions have in very few even come close to the actions of what Feminists have done. The extreme factions are always mentioned, the extreme though isn’t the norm, unlike Feminism the extreme factions are not the ones dictating the herd.

I will admit that this comparison has caused me to re-evaluate feminism. It’s become even more clear to me now that Feminism not only won’t clean up its house, but they can’t. For them to do so would require a conscious, consistent long-term effort. It would also require the majority of feminism to actively support or jump on board with such an effort for it to work. Given the current situation that feminism is in at the moment, such an effort is very unlikely. What’s more like, and when I mean more I mean 99% likely to happen. Is that feminism will have to self-destruct and then need to rebuild itself from the ashes. By that time the whole concept of the role of women in society and what’s going on with them will probably be very different from what it is now.

This also serves as a warning to MGTOW and also to the MRM! We as a group cannot allow ourselves to fall into the same trap that feminism is now in. It’s critical that manosphere be about healing and rebuilding of men and not about revenge. It’s also clear from this interview that like Feminism both MGTOW and The MRM will likely also reach a period of redundancy in the west, assuming, of course, humanity doesn’t destroy itself.

Wasps and Bees also have a similar structure, and everyone agrees they’re not the same species, same situation here.

Blue Pill Alphas

If you go into the comments section of the Ranthony video, you’ll find a prime example of blue pill alpha. These are men that are doing well according to the selections that they’re aware. These men would be considered winners by societies standards today. They’ve played the game, played it well and in some rare cases are even thriving.

I reblogged this from The Rational Male, and it explains these guys better than I can here. Suffice to say though in the case of the guy I was dealing with he had a major dependence on external versus internal validation.

https://theredpillnation.wordpress.com/2016/11/15/blue-pill-alphas-the-rational-male/

I’d have to say at this point in time, these men are as big a threat, if not bigger than anything Feminism can throw at MGTOW at the moment. I did another blog recently about how Feminism is clearly starting to hit the ditch. They simply don’t have the resources either financially or culturally at this time to go into a full-on assault against MGTOW. Blue Pill Males and in particular Blue Pill Alphas do though. There is a basis for them doing so too. Imagine you’ve spent most of your life playing the game, fighting to get to the top of the heap, only to discover that not only was it not the top, but there were MGTOW able to ascend those heights that someone like Mr. Blue Pill Male could only dream of WITHOUT the brutal struggle. That’s not to say that the voyage for MGTOW is easy, the end of the process though delivers freedom that no Blue Piller, Not even a President, Prime Minister or King can have. This invalidates their whole struggle, this also explains why MGTOW have a tendency to want to hide their faces. Our process and struggle is very frightening to a blue pill alpha. Someone like the one I dealt with has to insult someone like me because it’s only in invalidating my effort that he can maintain his effort.

This anger and fear will grow as MGTOW continues to get larger and the effects start to have a real effect on the system as a whole. Specifically, in inoculating men against Gynocentrism these men will be compelled to do more than laughing at us and insulting us, THAT will be when the real fight begins. These men have a vested interest in keeping things the way they are, MGTOW are once they’ve completed the Red Pill Rage above and beyond that model.

This is where staying under the radar helps. At some point, there will be a face or two put on MGTOW until then though remaining a faceless mist is the best approach to people like this. That doesn’t mean I’m going to lie down and allow some ignorant fuck to step on my toes. I’ve worked hard to get past my personal red pill rage but also to self-actualize and self-validate.

Until then no Blue Pill asshole will tell me what I do with my life.

So in review, I’d say this interview was passable, Sandman does a much better job selling MGTOW than I can. I wasn’t seeking to convert anyone that’s not my style, my style is telling people what MGTOW has done for me. That’s really all that I can do
