Regarding this exchange:
NPC-ism:”DOESN’T LOOK LIKE MUCH OF ANYTHING TO ME”
Brilliant Framing by Western Renaissance
“The only ethnic Europeans who “oppress” anyone are anti-ethnic european, ethnic Europeans.”— @ReactionaryIan
“Yep. Involuntary Status Redistribution by False Virtue Signaling.”– Curt
God damn, I love how precise the explanation is through the lens of the economics of status.–WR
“But, it’s more irritating tho somehow, isn’t it? lol”– Curt
“Absolutely, because cuts through people’s after the fact justifications and makes it clear that they are simply self-interested consumers of everything lol And also because I think during my search for answers, part of my brain has subconsciously assumed that people would care or that it would be easier to convince them if you had good explanations and answers. But no… the sad truth seems to be that you can explain things with as much detail and elegance as you want, but when faced with the option of becoming aware of their strategy and self-interest, people just give the Westworld response..’ doesn’t look like much of anything to me'”–WR
“Yep. When faced with the truth the NPC says “It doesn’t look like much of anything to me”. — CD
I can’t think of anyone who’s articulated the masculine psychology of the European West with greater precision, comprehensiveness, or infectious enthusiasm than you. In my opinion, you’re the most valuable thinker the Right has today, not only because of your prolific output, but also your generosity and accessibility which are qualities of an exceptional teacher. The Right needs men like you and if the ingratitude and idiocy of the rank and file exhausts your patience, they’ll suffer for it.
That said, I can’t help but notice the irony of this exchange. The other half of Western European psychology is not concerned *primarily* with status. Status seeking is the motive force of hypermasculine/ascendant/libertarian psychology, as status retention motivates the established or conservative male. Western feminine psychology is much less distinct from the psychology characterizing women throughout the world, and for evolutionary reasons, this is necessarily so.
The primary concern of feminine psychology is connection. The vast majority of women and cognitively feminine men would accept a sense of connectedness with other people at the cost of status. Unlike ascendant men, their success and subjective sense of fulfillment is not measured by relative status, i.e., by distinction. Quite the opposite.
It’s measured by the degree of identity that they can achieve with their social group. Identity, equivalence, conformity, homogeneity- all feminine social behavior tends toward these. Status is gained passively, largely unconsciously, as women develop the ability to achieve them. The highest ranking members of female social groups are the ones best able to reflect the thoughts, feelings, and experiences of the other members, which is to say, the most empathic women lead, or better, are followed.
There’s a common mischaracterization of empathy on the Right as uncontrollable sympathy or pathological altruism. Empathy is merely the ability to vicariously experience the subjective experiences of another. For many this ability is entirely controllable, and when also highly developed, it’s empowering, as the feminine cognitive type will yield to those capable of demonstrating identity with them, whether genetic or cultural.
Ethnic European women feel oppressed by the ethnic European business class that’s ascended, dismantling the cultural institutions that they once conformed to and insisting their women behave as men, or worse yet, as machines. The ethnic European ascendant male has atomized and deracinated the European masses and his hubris has led to the defection of his women, the disengagement of his men, and the collapse of his civilization which was longer maintained by the more moderate and conservative establishment he dethroned.
But none of this looks like much to him.
CD: I would argue that I know that but I just categorize both male and female ‘seeking’ as status. (it is). I don’t know another term to use. The operational term would be something like ‘the opportunity discounts one earns from signals and reputations’.
