Roissy is good or whatever, but when those nerds on there start talking about the "negging" and stuff you can tell that they've never been around 3-dimensional women.

They'll read something on a manosphere/PUA site and then (literally) run right down to a bar or grocery store to "implement" their new technique. Seeing some of the posts on those sites is hilarious.

Everyone is different. I am sure there is a fraction of the female population susceptible to "negging", if you do it right.

Probably most of them live in Kentucky or Tennessee.

My game is much more focused on positive social proofs, such as professional job, high salary (5-figures a month), sartorial acumen, esoteric cultural taste (e.g., jazz music), high intelligence, good humor, and weightlifting.

I will leave the negging to the experts and idiots.

  Big Pawn: I don't get into all that PUA stuff at all. I just like how that group of guys are so uncucked. They are red pilled and that's what counts. There some overlap between the alt-right, the manosphere guys, nationalists and Christian conservatives. Each group is like a circle - think ven diagrams. Each group has its own center, but they overlap significantly, and I find myself in that overlap. There are things about each group that I don't identify with, and that keeps me from being, say, altogether in with the alt-right for instance or the PUA types, but the red pill crossover area is good.

The common ground is very good.

  Big Pawn: <Diceman: I still consider tga hard left. I'm what you call a, "tough crowd." >

Hard left? If you take someone who is really hard left, like one of those godless, commie, America hating, abortion loving, male feminist, white hating, Trump hating, MAGA hating libtards (take your choice among Rogoff libs) and then you change a few things, say:

1. He goes from atheist to theist

2. Doesn't want to continue the Browning of America

3. Doesn't support abortion.

4. Is pro second Amendment

5. Is pro Trump

6. Is MAGA

7. Is not a male feminist

8. Doesn't bad mouth America

9. Doesn't say, "communism looks good on paper"

If those things change then the man who was once hard left cannot be hard left anymore.

Logically speaking, a hard left man cannot be all these things and <not> be all these things too. Right?

Most people make this error.

What error am I talking about?

<diceman> has mistaken "objective assessment" for "advocacy".

<BP> is right - I am against abortion. That is THE ONE POSITION on an issue that never changed with me, even when I went Green Party in 2001, even when I tried to be an atheist. I never could support abortion.

That is my personal view on the issue of abortion.

However, my *objective assessment* of abortion is that <banning abortion, even in case of rape, is a far right view>.

Why? Because that's the truth, that's why. Just like saying banning guns is a far left view. This is true, and I will say it is true <no matter what my personal opinion is on the issue>!

As for going from atheist to theist, yes, <BP> is right. Why? Because he and I have discussed it already.

Actually, my path was this: raised as a nominal Christian => became Born Again fervent Christian => moved Left politically => tried to become atheist, but couldn't justify it with reason => found convincing external evidence for the existence of God => became Orthodox Christian

Final thought - If a woman is raped and becomes impregnated from the rape, then yes, she should have the right to an abortion in that case. Minimum criteria to meet: The incident had to be reported to the police as rape, and if it turns out the report was false, no abortion.

  Big Pawn: <tga>, I have an interesting question in light of the current discussion.

Do you consider yourself hard left, and if not, then why? When would you describe a person as hard left, and what is the difference between that person and you?

Jul-20-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: <Big Pawn:

Do you consider yourself hard left, and if not, then why?>

Not at all. And here is why: I am deeply opposed to causes that I consider to be the defining issues of the Far (Hard) Left.

1. Abortion on Demand: Far Left supports, I oppose
2. Reparations for Slavery: Far Left supports, I oppose
3. Guaranteed income: Far Left supports, I oppose
4. Gun control: Far Left wants to ignore the 2nd Amendment, I want any changes to adhere to the proper method of changing the Constitution, which is by amendment.
5. Immigration: Far Left wants open borders and floods of Muslims, I want secure borders and discriminating choices that benefit America (accept best & brightest only).
6. Divorce: Far Left wants no fault divorce, I want it limited to exceptional circumstances only. Far Left wants near-automatic child custody for the mother, I want default custody to go to the father.
7. Trump: Far Left wants soft coup, I accept fair election results. (2000 was not fair)

<When would you describe a person as hard left, and what is the difference between that person and you?>

Same as the difference between the far right and me. The political fringe, left or right, typically shares 1 universal characteristic - hypocrisy/double standard.

I am not perfect, but I am vigilant for this in my own thinking and try to ensure I don't fall into that kind of thinking.

Here's a great example: North Korea. Right after the summit, EVERY SINGLE leftist fell over each other trying to condemn Trump.

Hmm, does that look familiar? Obama & the Iran deal, anyone? Every righty fell over each other condemning it.

  Big Pawn: Thanks for your answer. I wonder what <dice> would say in response to this. Very interesting!

Now on to some other general thoughts.

<The Middle - not the fringe>

I don't consider it to be an honorable position to avoid so-called extremes. Most people are sheep idiots and that's why they are in the so-called middle. That's where the crowd is.

If you put evil on one end of the spectrum and good on the other end, it's not feather in one's cap to be in the middle of those two. Rather, it would be best to be extreme in that case.

I reject the notion that anything on the fringe is by definition not good.

Regarding North Korea and Iran deals, they are not comparable. Obama gave the Death to America nation pallets of cash and a green light to build nukes.

Trump only had a meeting, opening up new dialogue and hopefully a new diplomatic path without the pallets of cash or green light to enrich uranium.

So I am for the NK meeting but against the Iran deal and it's not hypocritical or contradictory.

Regarding hypocrisy:

<The political fringe, left or right, typically shares 1 universal characteristic - hypocrisy/double standard.>

Hypocrisy says something about the person, not the worldview. In this discussion I was only interested in the worldview and not the person per se. If you say you are not not the hard right because those people are hypocrites, then that says nothing about the hard right worldview, which is philosophical, but instead opines on your opinion of the character of people on the hard right.

So if my position on a thing is, say, I say smoking is bad for you and we should make it illegal. That would be my position. Now let's just say I smoke (I don't). It's not correct logic and the way of a well trained mind to say, "I don't agree that it's a good policy to ban smoking, because <BP> thinks we should ban smoking but he smokes, therefore he is a hypocrite."

It's almost a genetic fallacy, depending on how you treat it. If you say, "Hard right positions are no good, because they are championed by hypocrites" then that is a genetic fallacy.

If you say "I disagree with hard right stances because people on the hard right are hypocrites" that could be ad hominem or genetic fallacy. Either.

  thegoodanarchist: <Big Pawn:

Well, I didn't say that, and wasn't trying to imply it either.

For whatever reason, neither major party aligns with my views on every issue. So there are some issues on which I will agree with the Dems, others on which I will agree with the GOP.

<Regarding North Korea and Iran deals, they are not comparable. Obama gave the Death to America nation pallets of cash and a green light to build nukes. >

AFAIK the cash was Iran's money! The USA froze their assets way back during the Carter administration, because they invaded our embassy and took Americans hostage.

Also, although I didn't read the thing, I am fairly sure the deal didn't say "go ahead and build nukes - here's a green light!".

A person who works to ensure they are not being a hypocrite will not criticize W for his illegal war of aggression in Iraq, and then criticize Trump when he is working for peace.

I am talking about empty criticism, like the fools in the Rogoff forum, who were criticizing Trump even before the summit.

  Count Wedgemore: <tga: The political fringe, left or right, typically shares 1 universal characteristic - hypocrisy/double standard.>

I disagree with this. I think that in general there is more hypocrisy from those that are in the so-called "Middle" (a term that is arguably hard to define), because their opinions are far less coherent and often completely inconsistent. This inevitably leads to them taking hypocritical stances on many issues.

Which leads me to this clever little passage from <Big Pawn>'s post:

<Most people are sheep idiots and that's why they are in the so-called Middle. That's where the crowd is.>

While an exaggeration, of course, there is definitely much truth in that statement. People that are constantly afraid of taking controversial/non-PC positions on various issues, somewhat tend to end up in the so-called "Middle". So he has a good point.

  morfishine: <Counte Wedgemore> I like your comments on the so-called "middle". But the people in the "middle" aren't always incoherent, inconsistent or hypocritical.

Part of the problem these days is the norm now is to immediately "hang" or get someone fired just because they don't "embrace" a companies "standards". So, people are afraid to express their real views for the simple reason they will find themselves unemployed

I Absolutely agree with that, <morf>. What I meant was that it's in the "Middle" that you find most of the most blatant hypocrisy.

<Its a shame this Stalinistic approach to everything is re-emerging>

Amen to that. What you refer to is a growing problem in large parts of the Western world. And I understand that in the US it's even worse than here in Europe. Modern liberals seem to have lost interest in freedom of expression. Everyone is getting so offended, all the time! This phenomenon leads to what we just discussed: hypocrisy. People are afraid to speak their mind and voice their real opinions, so they become hypocrites. They have to be deceptive, particularly in their public life. Fortunately, this PC culture has started to face some backlash, hasn't it? People are growing tired of this madness.

I didn't consider this a big issue
in thinking you hard left. I simply
used it because the statement was there
and it was on BP's list.

I don't really believe the Democrat
politician cares about abortion.

(Civil rights champions who allow the
minority be destroyed and die, don't care about an abortion)

It is simply a tool to be used against
Republicans.
