The Continental Marriage is Better

Male-Female Relationship lessons learned from Ukraine.

1 – Men are barely tamed gorillas. Love them. Feed them. F– them. If necessary dress them.

2 – Women are incomprehensible. Their job is to love. Love them. Supply them. Make them feel safe.

3 – No talk of equality or how we should behave. No trying to train or change each other. No criticizing men for gorilla-ing, and no criticizing women for loving.

Their system is better. No Question. That’s why they’re so poor but still so wonderful. That’s why we’re so broken. We ended the contract between men and women. Men are not women. Women are not men. And any pretense of otherwise is just a lie to perpetuate a fraud, by which to steal, instead of trade.

That’s what I learned.

Is Male Bonding The Source Of Civilization?

(hmmm… well, lets do a propertarian analysis of that question)

—“How do you feel about mannerbunds?”—Harrison Baker

Well you know, I tend to stay away from silly terminology and instead make operationally testable statements.

men evolved to work in groups of brothers to herd women, hold territory, and kill competitors and take their stuff.

this requires both cooperation: shared risk, and loyalty: elimination of defectors and parasites, and a division of spoils preserving both cooperation, loyalty, and the punishment of defectors and cheats.

civilization is the result of teh accumulated knowledge and institutions that allow us to scale this system to ever larger and ever more competitive circumstances.

in this sense, yes, the bond between men that we traditionally call the ‘intitiatic brotherhood of soldiers’ is in fact the source of what we call ‘civilization;: cooperation at very large scales.

But we could just as likely say that it’s the need for men to bind to herd women and hold territory and develop institutions that is the source of civilization.

or we could say that it is man’s reaction to the untrustworthiness of women that is the origin of civilization since all we do is invent better farms in which to herd our women at lower cost to us.

Or we could say that women are untrustworthy in order to force us to build good farms (nests) for them in which they can nest. And that it is women’s untrustworthiness that forces us to cooperate and create nesting areas for them.

Roll that little model around in your head for a while? 😉

Love Doesn’t Require Debate

We are supposed to love women and care for them. We are not supposed to debate with them over true or false. Only whether a want is possible for the two of us, or impossible for the two of us. Our education, commerce, and politics places too much emphasis on true or false or good or bad, and too little upon possible and impossible. Women are precious creatures if they are honest. There is no reason we must worry about good and true. Only possible and harmful. It does not matter if what they want is good or true, only whether it is possible and not harmful. We are happy to ask women not to ask us to think as women. But we too infrequently fail to reciprocate by not asking women to think as men. Women nest at home, seek signal status with their peers, and try to overload their children, and none of these three impulses have any limit other than her exhaustion. An exhaustion which she will transfer to you. So do not ask woment to be men and think of limits and efficiency. Just love them, and do what is possible. The suffering occurs when we engage in transfers and not exchanges. and the enemy of exchanges is lethargy caused by lack of fitness, and lack of will.
