The other day, Mentu and I were having a conversation about the current trajectory of the manosphere. The discussion was whether or not any real traction was was occurring – or as Mentu is fond of saying: “Remind me once again why I’m doing this?”
UMan has had its fun this summer poking fun at the feminists, and engaging gleefully in some gratuitous slut-shaming, but we all know that is nothing but venting a little steam.
General Patton is reputed to have once said that he would rather have the German army in front of him than the French army behind him. Personally, I can relate to the idea of having more respect for even my most bitter opponent if they show consistency in their position. Worse, of course, is to find out that your own side will not support you. The worst of all is when your own betray you by cutting a deal with the other side.
Whatever disdain I feel for female feminists is amplified a hundred times over for their Vichy male collaborators. To betray their own status as men, and to engage in the enthusiastic kneecapping of other men requires some sort of motivation, a point of leverage, or hinge.
The lever is a simple machine, yet capable of exerting immense force, when properly used. But the lever and applied force are worthless without the hinge – the fulcrum. In form, the fulcrum is a basic triangle.
For the average beta male, the shaved basic triangle is their fulcrum
It’s been said that NATO nicknamed the Mig 29 fighter “the Fulcrum” as a sort of hat-tip to the pivotal status of that aircraft, a hinge on which air power turned. The Russians took the name as a compliment. Maybe the term “Mig” could be as a substitute for ‘cooter’ or ‘snatch’? Just a thought.
When the lever of male desire is set over the fulcrum, the female will have immense leverage over the will of the male. The larger he allows the fulcrum to be, the eaiser it is for the female to lever that man into acting in her service.
This is why teachers of Game stress outcome independence so strongly. This is the reason for the neg. This is why internal frame is so critical. A lot of manosphere ink has been spilled teaching men to overcome the “scarcity mentality”, which is a big part of beta behavior. It is important to remember that scarcity is not just a mentality; it is also a reality for a large number of men, mostly due to unrestrained female hypergamy. The tendency for women to float to the alpha peak of the pyramid leaves an undeniable scarcity nearer the bottom.
Game, along with the development of your masculine frame is all about diminishing the size of the fulcrum in your mind. But what about the lever? In theory, a man can learn to master his desires, at least for a while. But this is to attempt to mess with nature, and to corral primal drives which for most men, can only be attenuated by time/age/sufficient exposure to post-wall women. Since we can’t do much to mitigate desire, this leaves us with the only other option – reducing the scarcity mentality.
Men who insist on white knighting, female-worship, and general feminist ass-kissing have allowed the fulcrum to grow to a monstrous size in their psyche, and are therefore more than happy to aid and abet the rapidly metastasizing organism of female non-accountability. Even ‘happily’ married men who have a fulcrum waiting for them at home still fall into this. A certain Churchian blogger I am thinking of fits this description. Even though such men are theoretically off the market, they are always eager to win female approval and show off their beta bona fides in exchange for a pat on the head from the wimmenz. This is the beta male version of attention whoring.
Back to the Ashur/Mentu discussion: The future will depend on the level to which men are willing to be outcome independent, to Game, or to go their own way. Feminism and all of its destructive social forces are wholly supported and subsidized willingly by the beta male. The latent forces of feminism have always existed in female nature. But it took the modern Vichy beta male to tilt the balance of power so completely. Feminism could scarcely fail with so many willing collaborators.
As I told Mentu, all we need to do to reverse feminism’s reign of error is to find a way to deeply diminish the male sex drive. Since this is not realistic, the only other method is to reduce the size of the fulcrum by increasing mens’ sense of personal dignity and self respect, which is a part of what I call Masculine Frame. Only time will tell if men are ready to make self-respect their first priority. As long as men allow their desire to be bent over the fulcrum of a girl’s freshly waxed Mig, she can lever his will as she chooses.
