As promised, here is a look at one of several market segments it may be worth chewing through with a mechanized conversion engine. For this first installment let us look at a group which is having a moment in the popular discussion space three years after their guy had his moment in the Republican space, the Elliot identifying self-aware surplus males. Or as they prefer to self identify, incels.
Why market to self admitted losers? Consider the following points of ideological allignment:
- Deep Hatred of the Femstate - Unfortunately this also tends to be accompanied by preferences for different flavors of socialism, but it is a short move from where their discourse is centered to the Republican imperative to disenfranchise bitter old women for they are the root of all evil.
- Not anti-hooker Puritans like their "Manosphere" predecesors - Wheras the bizarre characters making up the backbone of the old manosphere/pill realm focused on ethically sourcing free range pussy in a complete surrender to both the Puritan and Pantsuit objections to sex work.1 There is cognitive dissonance and lack of consensus in the ranks on the subject over whether patronzing hookers
- Their Loserdom is Deeply Internalized - Rock bottom and possibility of surrender and all that. Also, they tend to be sufficiently disillisioned to resist the tempation to view Trump as their secret best friend unlike the folks embracing their manliness in weird Anglo-Puritan ways.
The bulk of them, like the bulk of idiotic humanity is likely too far gone for anything, but that happens even when Mircea fishes for sluts in the place that says its supposed to have sluts. It's possible that one or more angry young men out of the millions is open to doing something about their situation, and unlike the average "dominant identifying" sense of humor guys, their resignation might make them hungry enough to try something.
Group solitications would likely fail for the same reason they have in the past failed to hook promising leads from other populations. Bias towards their known, comfort heirarchy and the ensuing ant defense tactics. In their language, every positive action is derided as a "cope". All of the sex-having apparently goes to some guys named "Chad", the bodybuilder-tattoo uniformed folks doing the Pick-up thing and apparently ruining pink markets around the world.2 The obsess over millimeters of bone they may or may not have ignoring ample examples from history where dozens of hookers kept armies of thousands of men laid while on the march.
The size of this pile is immense to the point Anglin and Weev shifted the editoral spin of their Socialist Stormer in a not entirely unsuccessful attempt to appeal to these surplus males as a group. I am strictly uninterested however in groups or numbers. I am interested in mechanically tossing ropes into their pits of melancholy with the hope some might climb. Other might hang, but that is already incredibly common in their community. The #trilema channel is pointedly not the place to be receiving the climbers, thusly #pizarro and the other aspiring castles are going to need irc bot attention.
The sad state of the world is that it seems the place to start churning through in search of live intelligences is also the place most sad.
- The primary Puritan objection is that sex work is sex, while the primary Pantsuit objection is that sex work is work. [↩]
- The mechanism for this which I suspect from Mircea's observations of his travels is they go around doing their "nomad" thing and their "pick-up" thing. The result is girls who'd normally be selling mis-perceive the arrival of their chance, and get burned. Eventually the cycle breaks with the guys talking about how "Eastern Europe is ruined" before going to Jesus while the girls are abandoned to pastoral bovinity. [↩]
