Cynic - a redpill person - someone who understands reality
Willie Sutton, the infamous bank robber, was asked by a reporter why he robbed banks? Willie looked at the reporter as if she was stupid and replied, that is where the money is. Willie later became famous for Sutton’s law, which is taught in medical schools, when making a diagnosis one should first consider the obvious. He is probably responsible for the phrase follow the money, when you want to find out someone’s motives, you follow the money. Willie is what you call a cynic, according to people who enjoy hiding in their safe spaces, someone who is negative, miserable and unhappy. By contrast, anyone who knew Willie, whether is was a Mafia Godfather or a news reporter, described him as bright-eyed, intelligent and cheerful. Back in 1910, the child of a poor Irish immigrant, with a grade 8 education, lacked career opportunities, being cynical, Willie accepted this. This then begs the question:
What is a cynic?
Let’s see what Websters has to say.
Definition of cynic
1 capitalized: an adherent of an ancient Greek school of philosophers who held the view that virtue is the only good and that its essence lies in self-control and independence
2 a faultfinding captious critic; especially: one who believes that human conduct is motivated wholly by self-interest
From the definition, we learn that the term cynic originated with an ancient Greek School of thought and it is a person who believes that human conduct is motivated wholly by self-interest. From the definition, it deals with gaining an understanding of what actually motivates people. Human beings are unique in two ways. First, they have the capability of language. All social animals have the ability to communicate within their group but with humans, we can transfer large amounts of information. Secondly, human beings are capable of lying, as in transferring a complex idea that is intentionally false. A televangelist named Reverend Crow says, send me 10% of your income, I then guarantee that your spirit will never die, just your body. After your body dies, you will be reborn into a new body at Sugar Candy Mountain.
Mr. Donkey accuses Reverend Crow of spreading lies for self-gain, he is called cynical. Reverend Crow will also call him butt-hurt and angry. Shutup Mr. Donkey you are ruining everyone else’s happiness. Reverend Crow now has created another set of lies to cover up his first set of lies. Indirectly Reverend Crow accuses Mr. Donkey of lying. Other animals are capable of deception but not to the degree humans are. A pigeon will fill himself full of air to appear bigger. Another pigeon can not directly say, hey pigeon, you really are not that big. Then the puffed up pigeon can’t respond with, yes I really am. Lying as a form of deception is unique to humans.
Since humans are capable of lying for self-advantage, that means their true motives can not be determined by what they say. When people are lying, their speech patterns often will not align correctly with their body language. This is why self-deception is advantageous if Reverend Crow believes that Sugar Candy Mountain exists, it is easier from him to deceive others. I call this Lying to the person in the mirror, psychologists call it rationalization. A cynic is a person who understands the true motives of human beings, he is a person who studies social evolution.
What is social evolution?
Social evolution is a subdiscipline of evolutionary biology that is concerned with social behaviors that have fitness consequences for individuals other than the actor. Social behaviors can be categorized according to the fitness consequences they entail for the actor and recipient.
- Mutually beneficial – a behavior that increases the direct fitness of both the actor and the recipient
- Selfish – a behavior that increases the direct fitness of the actor, but the recipient suffers a loss
- Altruistic – a behavior that increases the direct fitness of the recipient, but the actor suffers a loss
- Spiteful – a behavior that decreases the direct fitness of both the actor and the recipient
This classification was proposed by W. D. Hamilton, arguing that natural selection favors mutually beneficial or selfish behaviors. Hamilton’s insight was to show how kin selection could explain altruism and spite. Social evolution
Freud popularized the term subconscious, that there is a part of our mind which we are not fully aware of but somehow influences our decisions. What is lesser know is that Freud was what we would now call a social evolutionist. He understood that most of our behavior originated from what he called the primal horde. What Freud called the subconscious, we now call the reptile brain, the part of our brain we inherited from reptiles. It is within this brain, emotions originate.
IN 1912 I took up a conjecture of Darwin’s to the effect that the primitive form of human society was that of a horde ruled over despotically by a powerful male. I attempted to show that the fortunes of this horde have left indestructible traces upon the history of human descent;
the relation that holds between the contrivance by means of which an artificial group is held together and the constitution of the primal horde. We have seen that with an army and a church this contrivance is the illusion that the leader loves all of the individuals equally and justly. But this is simply an idealistic remodeling of the state of affairs in the primal horde, where all of the sons knew that they were equally persecuted by the primal father, and feared him equally. Group Psychology and the Analysis of the Ego - Sigmund Freud
There is evidence that Freud based many of his theories on Social Evolution or what is sometimes called Evolutionary Psychology. Freud was criticized for stating most of our behavior originates because of sex. Where did Freud get this idea from? Darwin.
Darwin’s reaction to the existence of the bright plumage of the peacock led him to one of his most important insights. Given how sexual reproduction works, he concluded that reproduction is, ultimately, more important than survival! If one animal (let’s call it a survivor) has a feature that improves survival a great deal (but that inhibits reproduction) and a competing animal (let’s call it a reproducer) has a feature that tends to inhibit survival but facilitates reproduction, the reproducer will leave more offspring than the survivor. Accordingly, any feature that is, for whatever reason, desirable to potential mates will be selected—regardless of its survival value. Thus, the preferences of the opposite sex (preferences that, clearly, fall under the umbrella of psychological phenomena) select the qualities that will be reproduced in offspring. Why do peacocks have such a bright tail? Because peahens think a bright tail is a hot commodity. Mating Intelligence Unleashed: The Role of the Mind in Sex, Dating, and Love
The foundation of evolutionary psychology which is the foundation for all psychology is based on Darwin’s observation Given how sexual reproduction works, he concluded that reproduction is, ultimately, more important than survival. Darwin then observed that there are two types of evolutionary competition, competition between species and competition within the species. A large peacock tail benefits the male peacock for competition within the species. For competition between species, the tail of a peacock is a liability, it serves no purpose.
The biggest criticism of social evolution is that it couldn’t explain altruism. The reptile brain signals a person with emotions. Altruism makes us feel good, threats to our status or territory makes us angry, danger makes us fearful. Altruism is beneficial in two ways, in the first case, it can be mutually beneficial. In a hunter/gather tribe, food can not be stored, a hunter giving away excess food is a primitive welfare system. In the future, he might be short of food, hunters which he gave surplus food to would be more inclined to give him food when they have a surplus.
The second reason for altruism is less obvious, it is a way for males to signal potential mates they are good providers. The peacock tail shows females that the peacock has a surplus of energy, he then uses this energy to grow a large tail. By the same token, a hunter who consistently gives away food is showing he is producing a surplus of food. This signals potential female mates, he is a good provider. Women want a good provider since babies require a lot of food. Altruism doesn’t exist since it provides the giver with an advantage. If Evolutionary Psychology has a scientific foundation, why is there a tremendous opposition to it?
The illusion of freewill
freewill : the power of acting without the constraint of necessity or fate; the ability to act at one’s own discretion.
Human beings have the concept of freewill. That they can control all of their actions with their logical mind. This is an illusion. If you are not aware of something, you can not control it. I swing at your head with a baseball bat, you will feel shock or fear, you will instinctively flinch or duck. I stick out my hand, instinctively will also stick out your hand, we shake hands. Many drug addicts are highly intelligent people, consciously they know their behavior is causing self-harm and harm to others. Yet the is a force beneath the surface that compels them to continue using drugs. One of the greatest fears people have is losing their freewill.
Demon possession is an example of a fear of losing one’s freewill. Rename demon to the subconscious and rename own spirit to consciousness. The descriptions of demon possession start to resemble someone whose subconscious is causing them to behave irrationally. The person is described as having an outer force or evil spirit controlling them. This evil spirit causes them to lose their freewill.
Social evolution shows that a lot of our decisions are made by our subconscious or reptile brain. This scares most people. Also, there often is a conflict between the conscious and the subconscious mind. Society tells people they should behave in one way, their logical brain accepts this and tells them the same thing, yet their subconscious tells them to act in an opposing manner. The reason why society tells people to act in a certain manner is self-interest for certain individuals.
Self-interest under the guise of altruism
About that time there arose a great disturbance about the Way. A silversmith named Demetrius, who made silver shrines of Artemis, brought in a lot of business for the craftsmen there. He called them together, along with the workers in related trades, and said: “You know, my friends, that we receive a good income from this business. And you see and hear how this fellow Paul has convinced and led astray large numbers of people here in Ephesus and in practically the whole province of Asia. He says that gods made by human hands are no gods at all. There is danger not only that our trade will lose its good name, but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis will be discredited; and the goddess herself, who is worshiped throughout the province of Asia and the world, will be robbed of her divine majesty.” Acts 19:23-27 New International Version Bible
There are two known accounts of Apostle Paul accusing certain religious followers of being concerned about self-interest under the guise of religion. Later these silversmiths attempt to bring charges against Paul for blasphemy and robbing the temple. The court magistrates throw out the charges due to lack of evidence. There is no proof that Paul blasphemed or robbed the temples. Paul most likely belonged to the branch of Christians known as Gnostics, knowledge or truth seekers. Despite later revision of the accounts of Paul, his message could not be totally hidden.
Move forward 2000 years. In 2007, Satoshi Kanazawa published a book entitled Why Beautiful People Have More Daughters: From Dating, Shopping, and Praying to Going to War and Becoming a Billionaire—Two Evolutionary Psychologists Explain Why We Do What We Do which explained in layman’s language Social Evolution or Evolutionary Psychology. He pointed out many politically incorrect truths. The response, a petition against him by 68 evolutionary psychologists, he was dismissed for writing for Psychology Today and his current employer, the London School of Economics, forbid him from publishing in non-peer review outlets. Meanwhile when so-called woman’s studies scientists publish articles denying gender differences in the human brain, harsh measures like this are never taken against them.
If you mention a politically incorrect truth to the average person, sometimes they agree with you or most of the time they don’t care. The ones that protest the most are ones which profit the most from politically correct lies. Ironically the politically correct attacks religion yet they behave in a similar manner to many religions. To be able to see this, one needs to get a red pill attitude.
What is the red pill?
The term red pill originates from the movie The Matrix. It is an action movie but beneath the action and special effects it has a deeper meaning. The premise behind the movie is everything we see is an illusion, that we are living inside a matrix, a huge computer which generates what we perceive to be reality according to a set of rules. In the movie, Neo is offered a red pill or a blue pill, if he takes the red pill, he will be able to see the hidden rules of the Matrix. Once he sees the hidden rules of the Matrix computer, he is able to free himself. This isn’t a new idea, it is similar to Plato’s The Allegory of the Cave where everything is a shadow on the wall.
The red pill is a name which has been adopted by many Internet groups. The subreddit the red pill describes itself as:
The Red Pill: Discussion of sexual strategy in a culture increasingly lacking a positive identity for men.
There is often debate within the red pill community, what exactly does red pill encompass. The answer is simple, every single decision a male human makes is indirectly sexual strategy. The definition is similar to the social evolution one.
Social evolution is a subdiscipline of evolutionary biology that is concerned with social behaviors that have fitness consequences for individuals other than the actor.
An advertising agent is a red pill. At car shows, beautiful female models sit on the hood of sports cars. The implied message being, if you purchase this sports car, you will be able to attract a beautiful female. The advertising agent knows that putting a female dressed in skimpy clothes on the hood of the car increases sales by 40%. By the reverse token, makeup and beauty products are a multibillion dollar industry for women. The premise being, buy this product, you will be able to attract higher quality men. This is the universal premise, even in countries like Saudi Arabia.
Last year, Saudi women spent almost $2.4 billion on cosmetics, among the highest per capita in the world, and analysts predict that the market will grow by 11 percent this year. Saudi women among world’s biggest consumers of beauty products
What many people, even on the red pill subreddit are in denial about. What is a good sexual strategy for men isn’t a good sexual strategy for women? Men and women live in two different realities as I describe in my post Fish and fishermen occupy different realities. The third wave feminist movement is in total denial since it goes against their best interests. It could be called a red pill for women.
One of the most prominent areas of research in evolutionary psychology—and one of the most controversial 15—pertains to work on sex-differentiated behavioral patterns between men and women in the mating domain. Study after study that examines differences between the sexes in mating-relevant behavior has found important differences that are generally consistent with predictions based on the evolutionary perspective.
Although long-term mating strategies definitely characterize human mating in a general sense, research does suggest that it is appropriate to differentiate between a specific male mating psychology and a specific female mating psychology. Mating Intelligence Unleashed: The Role of the Mind in Sex, Dating, and Love
Both the red pill and third wave feminists make the same accusations about each other. Both groups are hateful and they are practicing deception for a sexual advantage. Earlier I talked about self-interest under the guise of altruism, an uncomfortable truth is both males and females of all species practice deception to gain a sexual advantage.
Deception within sexual strategy
Research on sex differences exists in the midst of a sea of controversy. Scholars who reject the idea of human nature point fully to societal structures as the causal mechanisms that underlie male-female differences. Evolutionists, on the other hand, draw on evolution and human nature as critical in helping us understand these differences. This intellectual war rages—and likely will for years to come.
In this context, we believe that the evolutionist approach makes for an intellectually useful framework for understanding the nature of human sex differences—along with much else regarding human social behavior. Human deception is precisely the kind of area that seems to be sex differentiated in a way that is predictable in terms of the evolutionary perspective (of course, we acknowledge that there are differences within each sex in the use of deception). Mating Intelligence Unleashed: The Role of the Mind in Sex, Dating, and Love
Women have been practicing deception as a sexual strategy for at least 6000 years. Some of the earliest writings in ancient Egypt describe the use of female cosmetics. There is evidence showing female makeup is at least 100,000 years old. Some of the oldest archaeological discoveries in Africa are what appear to be crayons which appear to be female makeup. Modern versions of female deception are the advice that men should be honest with women. This is rather ironical considering most women are wearing some sort of makeup, the purpose which is to attract men. The uncomfortable truth is women have a greater incentive to deceive men, their survival depends on it.
In this context, we believe that the evolutionist approach makes for an intellectually useful framework for understanding the nature of human sex differences—along with much else regarding human social behavior.
Most of the calories that men in these societies provision come from hunting or fishing. So in many hunter-gatherer groups it’s not unusual for men to contribute up to 90 percent or more of the protein eaten by their families and band. These valuable nutrients and fat, however, come from vertebrate meat. And hunting requires many years of investment to master; even then, return rates are often low and quite variable. Among contemporary foraging groups, vertebrate meat can range from anywhere between 30 percent and 80 percent of the diet. So women’s work is extremely important, since women extract more constant and predictable food resources, including roots, nuts, seeds, invertebrate meat, and plant fibers that require a large amount of effort to process.18 Therefore, both sexes depend very much on one another to divide their labor between the staples needed to survive and the high-value nutrients required to thrive. Our Political Nature: The Evolutionary Origins of What Divides Us
In the majority of primitive societies, men have been responsible for gathering the majority of calories for the group. Third wave feminists here will lie by citing a primitive tribe in the Philippines which had female hunters. This is intellectual dishonesty since it is the exception as opposed to the rule. In places like the Philippines, there are no natural predators, the greatest risk is disease as opposed to starvation. From a survival perspective, a man does not require a woman versus a woman requires a man. That means there is a greater incentive for the woman to deceive the man. Third wave feminists go to great lengths to hide this truth.
The argument by the politically correct or feminists is don’t generalize or not all women are like that. From a theoretical perspective, they are correct, there is a possibility for genetic mutations. Whether or not the red pill or social evolution is 100% correct is irrelevant, I quote In this context, we believe that the evolutionist approach makes for an intellectually useful framework for understanding the nature of human sex differences—along with much else regarding human social behavior. From a male perspective, what is an effective sexual strategy?
Viable sexual strategies
Humans, unlike other animals, have technology. The percentage of the population required in food production has shifted from almost 100% in primitive societies to approximately 3% in developed nations. Theoretically, a woman does not need a man as a provider, unfortunately, technology does not change human brains which are thousands of years old. This then leaves a man with three possible sexual strategies.
Getting cucked - for some men, this is a viable sexual strategy. Cucked refers to a man providing economic resources to a woman for a child which is not his own. Usually, the child is from a higher value male, in exchange for this the man is allowed to raise children of his own. In some primitive tribes, the was a formalized version of cucking. A weaker tribe bordered a stronger tribe, in exchange for not getting wiped out, the weaker tribe would offer the stronger tribe some of their women for sex. These women would then be returned to the weaker tribe usually pregnant. In the modern world, what third wave feminists desire from most men.
Red Pill Strategy - gain a greater understanding of how humans make decisions, then exploit this understanding to make better decisions. As I have shown, all human decisions are based on sexual strategy, most of these processes are built into our subconscious. For people that argue it involves deception, the entire advertising industry is based on deception. Convincing people that your product is the best.
MGTOW - known as, Men going their own way. The MGTOW man has the same knowledge as the red pill man. Instead of pursuing a sexual strategy, he decides to spend all the resources he collects on himself. Third wave feminists call these type of men selfish since they are not spending any of their resources on women. Historically this has precedent, the Apostle Paul recommended that if a man can resist his sexual urges, he should stay single.
Possibly there are other solutions for men. To find out the truth behind anything, follow the money.
Everything is economics
economics - a social science concerned chiefly with description and analysis of the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services.
Economics is a social science dealing with transactions. To ease calculations, humans invented something called money. The value of something is always in comparison to another item. A dozen eggs cost $3 and a bottle of beer costs $3, this means that one bottle of beer is equal to one dozen eggs. Society tells us that certain things like sex, companionship, life can not be measured in dollars and cents, economics says otherwise.
To find out how much sex is worth, look on an escort site in your area. First, you will notice that the majority of people who buy sex are men, this is regardless of whether they are straight or homosexual. There are no sites which offer men who sell sexual services for women. The cost of sex is dependent on three factors, the age, appearance and what type of sex she offers. The point here is to show that value of sex can be measured in dollars.
Most men like to delude themselves with the statement they do not pay for sex. What they mean is they do not directly pay for sex, instead they are paying indirectly. Example, a person drives half way across town to save $0.10 per a gallon of gasoline. The average sized gasoline tank is 12 gallons, he buys 10 gallons of gasoline, in his mind, he has saved $1. What he has failed to account for is the indirect costs, a person’s time is worth $10 per hour, the amount of gasoline consumed driving across town and the wear and tear on his car. Assuming it took in 1 hour to drive across town, instead of saving $1 he has lost a minimum of $9.
For men to increase their chances of attracting women to have sex with they need to increases their looks, power, and status. To do this he decides to work out in the gym 4 times a week at an hour per session and spend more on clothes. If his time is worth $10 per hour, working out in the gym costs him $40 per week. He then needs to calculate how many hours he spends propositioning women etc. The point is the man, there is always a cost. Granted there are other benefits from working out, better health, longer life span etc. From an economic perspective, this does not change the fact indirectly a man always pays for sex.
Originally economics assumed people make rational decisions. Modern economics no longer assumes this, people’s decisions are influenced by their subconscious. From Darwin’s original observation, Given how sexual reproduction works, he concluded that reproduction is, ultimately, more important than survival. People’s economic decisions will be based on sexual strategy and then survival.
You are cynical and bitter
Cynical means someone who assumes humans are motivated by self-interest. It is the ancient version of someone who is a social evolutionist and economist. The more a person profits from deception, self-interest under the guise of self-interest, the more bitter they will find you. As Willie Sutton the bank robber indirectly said, if you want to know how something works, follow the money. Bitter means they find you sour and distasteful. They want to spit you out. It is an interesting analogy since it implies they can not eat you. You have no use for them.
The purpose of this post is to show that all decisions a human being makes are related to either sexual strategy or survival. The closer to the truth one is, the better decisions one can make. A factor that is ignored is the role deception plays in sexual strategy. Historically speaking, the female benefits more from deception than the male since she is inherently reliant on the male. The biggest deception is pretending she is not reliant on the male.
