Re: Women, Freedom, Entrapment, Strategy

The universe comes to be, to make itself, by cooperation , as well as competition. You've only got your hand wrapped around your yang . . . . It's competition that creates the desire for cooperation. Don't let this blind you that war is also two separate cooperating teams, to win scarce resources, ...

Re: Women, Freedom, Entrapment, Strategy

I have women friends who, without exactly understanding why or what happened, have with their sixth sense understood that *something* shifted in my outlook. It's strange how it's women who are intimately aware of the power plays and how it takes either a rare or maybe lower class guy to think on th...

Re: Women, Freedom, Entrapment, Strategy

I note the following: GF philosophy represents and defines (upholds) a divorce from the core and very fundamental biological-existential facts. They see it all, they see what it is and where it leads, and they opt out. But this is totally artificial, is reactive, and in any case can never endure. I...

Re: Women, Freedom, Entrapment, Strategy

"My personal view is that a woman is something that one should consciously decide to 'control'." A very, very old thought borne of the flesh of the spirit. Women will always know that their progeny is "theirs" but men cannot secure such assurances unless everything about her breeding access and beh...

Re: Women, Freedom, Entrapment, Strategy

The ethical question depends on how the individual aligns himself with groups in the world and how he dispenses value. If it's a jesus-like figure then his group is all humanity, loving all people equally and advocating not only the same opportunities, but maybe even the same rewards. If it's more a...

Hi Laird, I've skimmed through some of your posts here, and it seems to me the main theme is a verging toward anti-science.

Re: What does it mean for a woman to be "strong and independ

Generally if it's a woman who mentions being 'strong and independent' it means she's chosen to use masculine energy as a survival strategy. She'll take mental notes about tougher men to help put a cap on her natural emotional flow and be more tough, aggressive and responsible herself. Unfortunately ...

The coming US dollar collapse

Since Ron Paul has been getting more headlines in the states, I've come across a lesser known economic theory called Austrian Economics. I've started doing research and it seems much more reasonable compared to today's Keynesian economics. For one, Austrian economists predicted today's US recession ...

Re: Thomas Ball's self-immolation

Epic way to die. The situation in America and elsewhere is that if you are masculine, outspoken, brash or sexual in even the slightest way, then you have to be EXTREMELY AND UNBELIEVABLY CAREFUL not to cross that fragile line in a woman's feelings that, if crossed, will set off a firestorm against y...

First, there would be no 'job' because 'the wise' choose not to work, remember? They get their money from the state and by 'abusing' social security (almost a form of fraud).

Re: Vanity

What should be is not important compared to what *is*. It is the great masculine hope to bring and keep the tides completely under control.

These are the kind of posts that define the dark side of GF rhetoric. The side of it that can be seen as elistists, haters and 'pain people'.

I think Laird understands the mechanics more or less. And as it is for everyone, it's really the question to how much you let it hit home, how much you let it into your heart and influence your entire world-view.
