In Which We Are Corrected

A Gamma male explains that I’ve got the Socio-Sexual Hierarchy all wrong:

Completely an utterly incorrect. Gamma males love having fun but don’t shrug off their responsibilities at the same time. They’re definitely adventurous and fun-loving and tend to get very restless if they’re left idle for too long. It is possible an alpha male might mature into a gamma male, because gamma males are a more refined version of them. They’re sensitive towards the opposite sex and are very aware of the needs and nature of what women truly want and they do anything in their power to fulfil their partner’s needs. Yup, women are lucky to have a gamma male in their life. They also display a certain amount of feminine behaviours, expectations and values to win their partners heart. They love putting their family first, in any given situation and scenario. The Gamma is seen as having a little bit of every other type of man combined in his personality, with no specific one of those personalities being dominant over the others. One of the main reasons for this is that the gamma male is one who is adventurous in life and creates his own path away from the opinions of others. Where the alpha male acts in a way that pleases others, the gamma male will do whatever he wants to feel fulfilled in his life. Gamma males usually have a wide array of skills and interests, leading to them enjoying exploring life and learning and doing as they please. Where the alpha male relies on his group for reassurance of his character and status, the omega male acts completely opposite of that with little regard for how he is seen by others. Because of this, the omega male’s sense of self-assurance allows him to avoid trivial popularity contests. An omega male will definitely have a few close friends he trusts and respects, but his primary source of meaning and confidence comes from within. A downside to this is that an omega male often neglects to care for others, as they only know how to care for themselves.

Well, I guess that settles that. Secret King wins again!

Is there a wider gap between other people’s perception of the Gamma and the Gamma’s perception of himself?


Machiavelli on the Haters

In his Discorsi, which are rapidly threatening to unseat the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius as my favorite practical guide to life, the Florentine analyst explains the futility of attempting to appease, accommodate, reason with, or otherwise win over those whose enmity is ultimately rooted in envy. It’s from Chapter 30, That a Citizen in His Own Republic Who Wishes to Employ His Authority for Some Good Work Must First Extinguish Envy:

This text takes note of what a good and wise man should do, of how much good it can bring about, and how great a benefit such actions can bestow upon his native city when, through his goodness and exceptional ability, he has extinguished envy, which is on many occasions the cause of men’s inability to do good deeds, since it does not permit them to enjoy the authority necessary in important matters. This envy is extinguished in two ways: either through some serious and difficult incident, where someone, seeing himself lost, defers every ambition and willingly races to obey the man he believes may, with his exceptional ability, deliver him; this happened to Camillus, who, having given so many indications of being a most excellent man, having been dictator three times, and having always conducted that office for the benefit of the public rather than for his own, had acted in such a way that men did not fear his greatness; and since he was so great and so renowned, they did not deem it shameful to be inferior to him (and for that reason, Livy wisely declares in these words: ‘nor did they believe, etc.’). * Such envy is extinguished in another way when, either through violence or the natural course of events, those men die who have been your competitors in attaining a certain reputation and a certain level of greatness; such men will never be able to acquiesce or remain patient, seeing you are more highly esteemed than they. Furthermore, when they are men accustomed to living in a corrupt city, where education has produced no good in them whatsoever, in order to fulfil their wishes and to satisfy their perversity of mind, they will be happy to see the ruin of their native city.

To conquer such envy, there is no other remedy than the death of those who feel it, and when fortune is so favourable to a man of exceptional ability that he dies in a normal fashion, he becomes illustrious without scandal from the moment that, without any obstacle or harm, he can demonstrate his exceptional skill. But when he does not have such good fortune, he must think about every means of removing the envious from his path, and before he does anything else, he needs to adopt methods that will overcome this difficulty. Anyone who reads the Bible intelligently will see that, in order to advance his laws and his institutions, Moses was forced to kill countless men, who were moved to oppose his plans by nothing more than envy. * Brother Girolamo Savonarola recognized this necessity very clearly; Piero Soderini, the standard-bearer of Florence, also recognized it. The former (that is, the priest) could not overcome envy, because he lacked sufficient authority to do so, and because he was not well understood by those who followed him and who might have possessed such authority. Nevertheless, he did what he could, and his sermons are full of accusations and invectives against the wise men of the world: for this is what he called such envious men as well as those who opposed his institutions. The latter believed he could extinguish that envy in the passing of time through kindness, his own good fortune, and favours to some; he saw himself to be rather young and with the great new popularity his mode of conduct brought him, he believed he could overcome those many who opposed him out of envy without any unusual acts, violence, or disorder, and he did not know that time does not wait, kindness is insufficient, fortune varies, and malice receives no gift that placates her. In this way both of these two men came to ruin, and their downfall was caused by not knowing how or not being able to overcome this envy.

Discourses, Machiavelli

If it sounds a little bit too much like the average suburban mother’s analysis – they’re just being mean to you because they are jealous of you – keep in mind that Machiavelli literally recommends having them executed. While that isn’t generally an option for people who are not Roman consuls, Renaissance princes, or dark lords, what that means in a practical quotidian sense is that one should pay absolutely no attention to anything that the trolls, haters, and critics want, and one should not ever bother to engage with them in any way.

It’s really rather remarkable how many of the great minds of the past clearly observed the gamma mindset in action, they simply never happened to label it.

I view this section as additional support for my decision to not revive the comments here on the blog, as well as for the autoblocking of every social media account that attempts to correct, criticize, or contradict my posts on the posts themselves. While I neither object to nor mind correction, criticism, or being contradicted, those who wish to do so can do so on their own time, in their own space. As it happens, very little is lost this way, as the noise-to-signal ratio is so great that the extinction of the envious from the discourse is well worth the cost of losing the occasional substantive critique.

When Gammas Rage

It’s so predictable, and more than a little amusing, to see how Gammas inevitably react when you inform them that you have no interest in listening to their Very Important Opinions or their Very Honest Questions, and will not subject yourself to their Very Valuable Instruction and Very Substantive Criticism.

Notice how they immediately go on the attack, and in doing so, underline the need for their exclusion. Meanwhile, they fail to observe that literally hundreds of people approve the policy.

  • I don’t even know who you are but you sure sound like a faggot to me.
  • “I won’t tolerate any of those hurty words!!! I can’t deal with the emotional fallout that comes from any criticism of my opinions!”
  • Jesus…. I feel like I just caught AIDS from your weak ass gab flex.
  • Writers from Teen Vogue have thicker skin than you do faggot.
  • This makes you sound weak.
  • I’ll just mute you instead so I don’t have to see this kind of drivel. Gamma (cough-cough)
  • Since you failed to provide context for your post, your attempted message is ambiguous at best.
  • 🤣😝😆🤣😂🤣😂 That was hysterical, so on this platform of yours if I’m getting this right is you and only you have a opinion and only you can get all in their feelings? 😝🤯😆
  • sure thing. that is the sole purpose of a social media platform. to be all alone.

They are all blocked and muted now, of course. It works every time.

Comments Gone, Gammas Hardest Hit

An unusually wise and insightful commenter who calls himself “Savantissimo” is complaining about the absence of post-Google comments here at AC’s place:

Looks like Vox Day isn’t going to have comments at his new site, and is going to leave deleted all the hundreds of thousands of comments that people, many of them unusually wise and insightful, collectively spent many years writing.

He really does think that it’s all about him, or should be.

First, I have made it perfectly clear since 2003 that I don’t care about the comments. I permitted them as a courtesy, nothing more.

Second, it is a distinct pleasure to no longer have to spend any time moderating the hundreds of spam and troll and wise and insightful comments. I had no idea how much time I was wasting on it until I suddenly didn’t have to think about it anymore.

Third, why was it my responsibility to preserve the comments of those unusually wise and insightful individuals? I arranged to back up my posts, so why weren’t they wise enough, or insightful enough, to preserve their own comments? It’s precisely because I didn’t regard their comments as mine, or think their comments were all about me, that I did not consider myself to be responsible for them.

Fourth, we’ve already been through this. Literally no one cared that all the Co-Comment comments were lost. Comments are intrinsically ephemeral, and while they are not entirely devoid of value, they are seldom worth the effort that is required to police them. And furthermore, despite what certain wise, insightful, and totally disinterested parties insist, literally no one reads any site for the comments. As has been repeatedly confirmed on this blog, and numerous other sites, getting rid of the comments doesn’t reduce the site traffic at all.

And fifth, we have SocialGalactic. Chats and superchats are coming to UATV. There is no shortage of opportunities for engagement within the community.

By the way, the comments aren’t actually gone. So, if you are seeking unusual wisdom or insight in them, you can still do so.

Money cannot compensate

When it comes to intersexual relations, money is a force multiplier. It is not a complete replacement for any element of attraction. Didactic Mind considers the Gates divorce from the perspective of the Socio-Sexual Hierarchy:

First among these is that money CANNOT compensate for Gammatude. It doesn’t matter how rich, wealthy, or influential you are – if you are a hardcore Gamma, this will show through eventually and inevitably. The list of such men goes on at some length – Jeff Bezos, Harvey Weinstein, Harry the Ginger Whinger, and now Bill Gates. And, in the case of Weinstein, the Gammatude has devastating consequences for those women unfortunate enough to be caught up in his web of influence and corruption.

The second, related, lesson has to do with an old maxim of Roissy’s from back in the day. Essentially, the sum of testosterone in a marriage equals the sum of oestrogen. A low-T man like Bill Gates will eventually end up with a low-E woman. By contrast, a high-T man will inevitably end up with a high-E woman.

Case in point: Hazy history of Melania Trump’s immigration status raises …

The third lesson can be found in the key phrase, “irretrievably damaged”, used in the statement to describe the couple’s separation. Think about it from Bill’s point of view. He is one of the richest, most powerful, most influential men on the entire planet. He has deceived himself into thinking that he is on a quest to save Mankind from itself. And his best buddies are all liberal, progressive, right-on loonie gazillionaires like him – and every single one of them has the approximate musculature of a chipmunk. (Even Jeff Bezos isn’t in that great shape, these days.)

Yet, even then, he knows, somewhere deep down, that he can do better than what he has. He could buy himself a harem of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful Eastern European women to rival King Solomon’s, but he stays with a woman whose best days are thirty years in the past.

Would you be able to avoid straying under those circumstances? Especially given the reputation that Melinda Gates has for being an unpleasant ball-buster?

That’s not me saying this about Melinda Gates, by the way: Given her appearance, I can WELL believe it, though.

The overriding lesson of all of this remains the same for all men, of any age:

Money, power, and influence do not make up for innate Gamma traits, and never will. The ONLY way out of that particular Hell is through relentless, focused, careful, structured self-improvement.

Money is just a tool. And the love of it is the root of all evil. So never, ever, rely upon it for anything, especially not as a foundation for your relationships.


The silence of the anklebiters

A socialgalactician marvels at the way in which gammas assiduously avoid admitting that they are wrong:

Seen any ankle-biters admit that Vox was right about:

Milo and Roosh being genuine seekers of the Truth

Richard Spencer being a fake-right clown BEFORE he endorsed Biden

Anyone?

As you might expect, while gammas will repeatedly insist that honor – they love that word despite possessing no understanding of what it means – requires that you publicly flagellate yourself every time your opinion happens to be incorrect in some way, they will never admit it when their pronouncements of absolute fact turn out to be entirely false.

Instead, they retreat to their delusion bubbles and redefine every necessary term and reinterpret every necessary event in order to pronounce themselves to be retroactively correct. This is why they literally can’t admit that they are wrong, and why the best thing to do is to simply ignore them, refuse to engage with them, and banish them from the community as soon as they are detected.

That’s why fewer and fewer gamma comments are seen here: every day the moderators delete comments for nothing more than the crime of exhibiting signs of gamma behavior. It becomes extremely obvious when you see the juxtaposition of gamma vs non-gamma communication on a regular basis. In much the same way that women can sense even the mild stink of gamma in a man’s compliment, the moderators have developed finely tuned instincts for that familiar combination of envy, insecurity, and false superiority.

Let them whine about free speech, echo chambers, and the importance of discussion in vain. All of those concepts are merely ideas dreamed up by undesirables in attempts to convince others to permit them to crash the party. But every party, and every organization, should devote as much effort to keeping out gammas as it does to keeping out SJWs.


Sigma on Gamma

Orson Wells wouldn’t be at all surprised that Woody Allen eventually became a creepy sex pest who groomed his adopted daughter.

OW: I hate Woody Allen physically, I dislike that kind of man. I can hardly bear to talk to him. He has the Chaplin disease. That particular combination of arrogance and timidity sets my teeth on edge.

HJ: He’s not arrogant; he’s shy.

OW: He is arrogant. Like all people with timid personalities, his arrogance is unlimited. Anybody who speaks quietly and shrivels up in company is unbelievably arrogant. He acts shy, but he’s not. He’s scared. He hates himself, and he loves himself, a very tense situation. It’s people like me who have to carry on and pretend to be modest. To me, it’s the most embarrassing thing in the world – a man who presents himself at his worse to get laughs, in order to free himself from his hang-ups. Everything he does on the screen is therapeutic.

The Socio-Sexual Hierarchy and the behavioral patterns it identifies have been around since before the dawn of human writing, it just hadn’t been articulated in a sufficiently useful manner until recently. 

And I can guarantee that Woody Allen still hates Wells with a burning passion. It wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest to find that he has attempted to mock Wells somewhere in one of his films. But I’ll never know, because you couldn’t pay me to watch Woody Allen movies.


And this is why

Here is yet another example of why I am increasingly disinclined to answer emails anymore. The larger the audience, the more likely that even the most simple, straightforward answer runs the risk of triggering yet another Gamma wall of text. It always starts very simply, although I had a pretty good idea what was going to happen given the fact that a) he said he’d “included a word doc” and b) had forgotten to actually attach it.

Vox a moderator deleted some of my posts on SG so can I ask why, I have included a word doc with the post that were deleted for your perusal if you so choose.

My response: Because you violated the Clean Speech policy. This isn’t hard.

One guess what came next…

Ok Vox, since we cant talk about the enemy of our Savior God you are actually tying one of our hands behind our backs in the battle against Satan. So according to your Clean Speech policy Vox, then even Jesus wouldn’t be allowed to be post here…

6 Times Jesus Talked About Satan

Matthew 4:10

In Matthew 4:10 it states: “Then Jesus said to him, ‘Be gone, Satan! For it is written that you shall worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve.’” This verse teaches us about the authority that Jesus has over the devil. During this time Satan was trying to switch Jesus to the dark side. Jesus had to pass the test that Adam failed in the Garden of Eden (Gen 2:16–17; 3:1–6). Jesus refused to believe the devil’s lies and instead obeyed His Father. Jesus was tempted but did not sin (Heb. 4:15). Satan has power, but Jesus has ultimate power over all creation. When Jesus said, “Be gone, Satan!” the devil had to obey him (Matt. 4:11). We can be confident in the midst of any trial that God is in control.

John 8:44

Speaking to a group of Jews, Jesus says, “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44). Satan is the “father of lies” in that he is the original liar. Satan told the first lie in recorded history to Eve, in the Garden of Eden. Lying is Satan’s primary weapon against God’s children. He uses the tactic of deceit to separate people from their heavenly Father. Jesus knew this, and wanted us to understand the tricks the devil might use so we could arm ourselves with knowledge. Some of his more common lies are “there is no God,” “God doesn’t care about you,” “the Bible cannot be trusted,” and “your good works will get you into heaven.”

Mark 5:7-8

Not everyone believes in demonic procession, but Jesus talked about it in the Bible on several occasions. Mark 5 tells the story of Jesus removing Satan’s evil spirits from a suffering man. Mark 5:7-8 says “[C]rying out with a loud voice, [the demoniac] said, ‘What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me.’ For he had said to him, “’Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!’” This, again, shows us that Jesus has the ultimate authority over the devil and his group of angels. Jesus can cleanse us of evil spirits and feel rejuvenated once again.

Luke 10:17-19

Luke 10:17-19 says “The seventy returned with joy, saying, ‘Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name!’ And He said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall hurt you.’” The context of these words is the return of the 70 disciples that Jesus had sent out to evangelize and prepare His way to Jerusalem. The group was so impressed that Satan and his demons had bowed down to the name of Jesus, but Jesus already knew they were well protected. The fall of Satan that Jesus saw happened after Lucifer’s sin. In his pride, Lucifer had lifted himself up, but God had cast him down out of his original place in heaven. Jesus’ statement in Luke 10:18 speaks on the back story of Satan and the Lord’s defeat over the power of Satan.

Matthew 4:7

This piece of scripture says: “Jesus said to him, ‘Again it is written, You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’” In this situation, the devil was citing Psalm 91:11-12 to entice Jesus to jump off the roof of a temple to test God’s love for His Son. Jesus quickly fought back, but it this passage shows us that Satan does have power. If Satan can do terrible things to try and manipulate our Savior, we should never underestimate his power here on earth. He was able to twist scripture to be used for evil purposes, and it’s a major way that Satan attacks Christians even today. Christians must be equipped with God’s Word like Jesus was so they can stand strong against the devil.

Matthew 25:41

When Jesus sits on His thrown in Heaven, He will separate those who were true believers by those who were not. Matthew 25:41 says: “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.’” Those who did not follow Jesus will be sent to Satan’s kingdom, where they will suffer for eternity. It also shares with us that Satan has fellow fallen angels that work under him, committing to doing his evil wrongdoings.

Jesus was very clear on the evil power that Satan holds, and wanted to ensure that we as Christian understood everything we could about the fallen angel. The Bible is filled with information on Satan and how Jesus sees the enemy. The more knowledge we have on Satan, the easier it will be to fight and resist him and his temptations.

This isn’t hard, well yes it is Vox because you make it so…

Vox, I have cancelled my subscription to Darkstream which automatically cancels SG its not even two months old, keep the money I don’t want it back…

You say Vox that you defend free speech but in actuality you really don’t.

He had his dream job

The Dark Herald delves deep into the Gammatude of Joss Whedon at Arkhaven. It is… insightful:

With no other prospects he fell into the family business of TV work as a writer.  He knew how the business operated. The paychecks (when they come) are big, plus, it is notoriously tolerant of obnoxious behavior and sexual abuse. It is the dream job of every Gamma

His connections got him a gig on Roseanne.  He ground out a few decent enough scripts, and it was here that his talent for comedy made itself apparent.  It was snarky comedy, but it was there. 

With a whopping four episodes of Rosanne under his belt he actually got a feature film greenlit.  And I know how he did it.  His family connections got his script put at the top of various in-baskets but what sold it, was a really great title.

Let me assure you, a title is unbelievably important in any writing endeavor, but it is especially important in the movie business. “For Love or Money,” is about the worst title in the history of fiction.  It could apply to any facet of human existence and tells you nothing about it.  There have been five films with this title, and no one remembers what any of them were about. It absolutely sucks.

The greatest title of all time is Legally Blonde.  Why? Because it tells you everything you need to know about the movie in only two words.  Legally blonde, is an assonance on, legally blind, and being blind is associated with being clueless.  It indicates to you the film is a comedy about a dumb blonde. And since it’s an American comedy, the dumb blonde will make good in the legal profession somehow.  The poster with Reese Witherspoon in a hot pink business suit with a toy dog in a purse confirms the prejudices the title gave you.  It’s brilliant.

You probably don’t recall the feelings you had when you first heard the words “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”  But try to approach it with a fresh eye and you will see that it is a great title.  Again, it tells you everything you need to know, to include whether or not you want to give it a shot, in only four words.  

The plot itself was reflective of 1990s urban fantasy settings.  Which was still reasonably new at the time.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer starred Eighties-also-ran Kristy Swanson and Luke Perry when he was still having to make a living as the world’s oldest teenager.  If you don’t remember it, there is a reason for that.  Buffy’s first incarnation pulled in a fairly anemic $12 million.

But he did get a script produced.  That got him his next job writing for Pixar on Toy Story.  That movie was very definitely a hit but for some reason John Lasseter never hired Joss Whedon again.  For some reason he didn’t want him connected with kid’s films.  You often wonder about what red flags executives look for. And sometimes you don’t.

Make no mistake, Whedon is a decent writer. He’s created several legitimate hits. But success, for the Gamma, almost invariably brings with it the seeds of his eventual downfall. And he makes for a very useful teaching example of what a Gamma Boss looks like.


The science behind LOL

Fake laughing utilized in a deprecatory manner is not just a reliable sign of gamma, but of the narcissism and heightened sensitivity that is typical of that socio-sexual class. AC explains, using Creepy Joe Biden’s response to Paul Ryan as an example:

Note how Biden is always desperate to project himself as strong and fit, challenging people to push-up contests, and talking about taking people behind the bleachers and beating them up, or standing up to Corn-Pop. He has probably got a trigger in there about being weak and impotent, and unable to defend himself, probably rooted in being teased as a child about his stutter.

This leads to a further note on deflection-laughing – my narcissist did this. He would even laugh louder and with a higher pitch, as if he thought it was even funnier, when confronted with even more clear, devastating, more verifiable criticism. The purpose would initially appear to be to present a mien of seeing the criticism as so minor he was laughing at it. But he did it in the face of rather devastating criticisms, and the more devastating the criticism, the louder and higher pitched the laughing. He would quickly transition from that deflection-laugh to anger if you continued the attack while dismissing his laughter as if you didn’t notice it.

I do not think he was just deflecting, though. He was unusually sensitive to laughter himself, so he may have been trying to use it as a weapon to assault his opponent. On several occasions, when he approached a group that was laughing, he would ask, almost in a cautious, and paranoid fashion, “What are you all laughing at?” As he did, he would look strangely braced, as if he assumed there was an answer he would not like, rather than looking amused, and like he wanted to join in. It was as if he assumed they were all laughing about something about him as he approached, and it was bothering him. I assumed he was laughed at as a child when being picked on and tortured by other kids, and it became a potent amygdala trigger in him.

Biden may be the same thing, as a stutterer. Kids may have made fun of his stutter when he was a child, and other kids laughed, and it became an amygdala trigger. Projecting now as an adult, as rabbits seem wont to do, he thinks it will hurt others the way it hurts him, and he now tries to employ it as not just a deflection, but a weapon as well, to hurt Ryan….

It is crazy to picture these retards all sitting around together making the sounds of laughter, even though they are miserable, just to try and hurt each other, but I think that is what would happen if you corralled a bunch of them together. It is how different from us they are.

I’ve seen small groups of gammas doing just that, with two or three of them fake-laughing at the others in an attempt to take control of the situation. Their instinctive fear of genuine laughter directed at them is such that they try to weaponize it for use against others. This use of fake laughter as a psychological weapon is why they are always LOLing and LMAOing and ROTFLMFAOing on the Internet, much to the complete bewilderment of psychologically secure men possessing higher socio-sexual status.

Gammas hate the success of others because observing the existence of the successful makes them feel inferior, even if, like Joe Biden, they have achieved a considerable amount of success themselves. But for the insecure, success is primarily a relative metric. That’s why gammas dedicate so much time and effort to completely pointless attempts to tear down those whose perceived success happens to trigger their amygdalas.
