Men On Strike Book Review Part 3 of 3

 Part 1  Part 2

For the Finale regards to Men Strike I will directly or indirectly discuss why I think Men Rights Activates are failing as my other factor why I’m very skeptical about Dr. Helen’s Smith 6 tips. After that, I will provide what I believe are the factors which will force society to start caring about Mens issues in the longer term.

Before I get started I highly recommend reading a previous post “Why Men’s Groups Fail” if you haven’t already before reading this review.

On top of this a very well respected member from the MGTOW Forums who has been involved in Men’s Rights in decades past gave me this information why MRA groups have been complete failures. 

“The #1 reason why men's groups always fail is that it has seemed impossible to keep a group of men from splitting into factions, once it reaches a certain size (which may be as few as 3), and start attacking each other. The #2 reason is that men have a real tendency to get pig-headed and completely attached to their own particular point of view, and even if they agree with another man 80%, they spend all their time focused on the 20% they disagree on. The #3 reason men's groups always fail is because "men", in general, never do shit about shit except complain.”

Those who doesn’t study and learn from history are bound to make the same mistakes over and over.

This is precisely why I advocate and adopt the MGTOW philosophy.

Even on my blog for all the number of posts and content I have, I can tell you what it’s all about in one sentence Do Not Get Married or have kids, Focus on bachelor hobbies you enjoy doing, and Rent college age pussy by the hour/Go on Over Seas Bachelor vacations as opposed to getting involved in long term relationships. 

In other MGTOW related sites blogs or forums, for all the content that’s out there, It can be simply stated by saying go live life for yourself and don’t give a shit about what other people or society thinks about it, you just worry about you and how you can better your own individual life and don’t worry whether or not it benefits society because it ain’t your problem. If you are going to make a major decision in life just do a cost/benefit or risk assessment analysis and ask what’s in it for me.

With women holding the majority of votes, having all the powerful gender lobbies and women only institutions, having a monopoly on reproduction, family courts, dominate in receiving tax fund dollars, having the post powerful government in the world backing these feminist dominated institutions, a Men’s Right Group is simply no match even if one can get organized and can be taken down with relative ease.

You can forget about Men’s issues getting properly addressed under this type of environment. The only way I see Men’s issues getting addressed is when they become Women’s issues.

If enough men individually go their own way, don’t impregnate anyone, don’t get married and say work fewer hours. It will mean many women will have denied getting to have children, who will be old spinsters, also the money to fund these feminist organization and other services will dry up as well. Under these circumstances, some women will want to change a few things to make things a little less hostile in hopes of luring guys back to the slave plantation; hopefully many of these guys who have gone Galt won’t be stupid. None the less, progress would have been made.

When you can successfully deny the opposition or other party something they covet you suddenly have something called leverage.

If you are guy and complaining about women riding the cock carousel and the unfair divorce industry, yet you married an ex carousel rider and got screwed in divorce court. You can complain all you want but as long as there are large pools of suckers who will accept this, nothing is going to change, why should they change because you have no leverage. Now if the marriage rates keep plummeting over the course of time the system would eventually get starved out of existence if changes weren’t made to make things more palpable for men. Of course NEVER get married!

Another example would be men getting screwed over by employment opportunities by feminist human resource departments. If men complain about it, it’s their problem to deal with it. Now 5-10 years later there won’t be enough men to support women now that their biological clocks are ticking who want to take it easy and have kids and of course no suckers to loot in divorce court either. Suddenly, this becomes a very big women’s issue. Now more women would be more motivated to make the human resource department less hostile and repeal some affirmative action policies so more men can gain meaningful employment so they could support women and children. Although you still should never get married. 

One more example would be I think a few years back not 100% sure, I read an article about quotas in Britain for medical school where 50% applicants accepted had to be women and 50% men even though young men substantially sent more applications so more young men aspiring to be doctors got turned away. For those men who get turned away, that’s their problem deal with it. Here is the big kicker, after five years in the profession 50% of the women medical school graduates dropped out to be a stay at home, or work a less demanding job. At the same time only 10% of the men dropped out of the profession after five years. As you can imagine a couple decades down the line, there probably will be a huge doctor shortage. Now who is going to be able to treat these older women who have ailments, diseases, or other issues which would require medical attention? Suddenly down the line a big doctor shortage would became a very big Women’s issue that needs to be dealt with. As a result maybe having 50% of the medical school slots required to go to women and turning away many applicants of young men who once had the ambition do be a doctor wasn’t the best idea after all.

Bottom line is nothing is going to change for the better regarding men’s issues until enough men can turn Men’s issues into Women’s issues. 

Here is what men can do individually to help accelerate the paste to turn Men’s Issues into Women’s issues so Men’s issues can indirectly get addressed. There is no need to organize, no need to hold protests, no need to argue with other men or women. In fact you can be very effective even by quietly keeping your views to yourself.

Now Dr. Helen Smith provided 6 tips so, I will provide 6 items as well to match Dr Helen Smith. I highly doubt any man would be engaging in all 6 areas. Even if guys just engaged in one or two areas they are doing their part! These items are of no particular order and no one item in my opinion has more importance than the other. All 6 items work very well as a team. 

The first four are a copy and paste job from The Futurist article called “The Misandry Bubble” 

The Futurist calls it the 4 Horsemen; I certainly recommend reading in its entirety if you haven’t already.

1) The Venusian Arts (Game) : Learning the truth about how the female mind works is a precious and transcendant body of knowledge for any man.  Whether he uses it to become a fully immersed pick-up artist, to create a soulmate bond in a lifelong monogamous marriage, or even to engage in only infrequent yet efficient trysts with women, a man is free from the crushing burdens that uninitiated beta men are capitulating under. 

When a man learns that there is no reason for him to buy a $50,000 car, $20,000 ring, $50,000 bridezilla festival, overpriced house contrary to any logical financial analysis, or a divorce lawyer to save him from ruin even though he was the victim of spousal abuse, there is no greater feeling of liberation and jubilation, equating to a windfall of $2 Million for all objective and subjective purposes.  When a man realizes that reducing his income by half will now have little detriment to his sexual prospects, he can downsize to an easier job with a shorter commute and lower stress.  When a man learns that appeasing a woman is the exact opposite of what he should be doing during the process of romancing and seducing her, that entire humiliating gauntlet of rituals can be jettisoned. 

The ecstasy of two or even three concurrent relationships with women of substantially above average beauty are quite attainable to a man who has scaled the summit, which further deprives the hapless betas (again, male attractiveness to women is zero-sum in a way that female attractiveness to men is not).  Thus, while 80% of men have no intellectual capacity to grasp and master the Venusian Arts, if the number of solid practitioners even begins to approach 20%, multiple parasitic beasts, from female moochers to the tax-swilling state to the corrupt real-estate and divorce lawyer industries, can be effectively starved. 

2) Adult Entertainment Technologies of 2020 (I would put free internet porn in the same category) : What of the 80% of men who cannot conceptualize the Venusian Arts?  Won't they be condemned to live a life of frustration, humiliation, and near-slavery as second class citizens?  Thankfully, these poor souls will experience a satisfactory release through technology, just like women did through technologies such as contraceptive pills, washing machines, and vacuum cleaners. 

For a number of reasons, Internet pornography is substantially more addictive to the male brain than the VHS cassette or 'Skinimax' content of the 1990s.  When yet another generation of technology diffuses into the market, the implications will be profound enough to tear the current sexual market asunder. 

I have written in the past about how haptic, motion sensing, and graphical technologies would elevate video games to the premier form of entertainment by 2012.  3-D/holographic images 

With haptic interfaces and sufficient AI will make rudimentary 'virtual sex' a technology available to many men well before 2020, but by 2020 we will see this cross certain thresholds that lead to a dramatic market impact far greater than contraceptive pills and Internet pornography combined.  A substantial portion of the male population will drift into addiction to virtual sex without even realizing it. 

For those (mostly women) who claim that the VR sex of 2020 would not be a sufficient substitute for the real thing, that drawback is more than superceded by the inescapable fact that the virtual woman would be made to be a 10/10+ in appearance, while the real women that the typical beta male user has access to would be in the 4-7 range.  Real 10 > VR 10 > Real 7, making irrelevant the claim that a virtual 10 is not as good as a real 10 (under 1% of all women), when the virtual 10 is really competing with the majority of women who are 7s and lower.  Women are largely unaware how vastly different the male reaction is to a 10 relative to a 7, let alone to women of even lower scores

As single men arrive home from work on Friday evening, they will simply default into their VR immersion, giving a whole new meaning to the concept of 'beta testing'.  These sequestered men will be conspicuously absent from the bars and nightclubs that were the former venues of expenditure and frustration, causing many establishments to go out of business.  The brains of these men will warp to the extent that they can no longer muster any libido for the majority of real women.  This will cause a massive devaluation in the sexual market value of most women, resulting in 8s being treated like 5s, and 35-year-old women unable to attract the interest of even 55-year-old men.  The Wile E. Coyote moment for women will move a few years ahead, and the alphas with Venusian Arts competence will find an even easier field of desperate women to enjoy. 

Another technology making advancements in Japan is that of lifelike female robots.  While I do not believe that 'sexbots' will be practical or economical relative to software/gaming-derived solutions, the Japanese nonetheless continue to make surprising progress. Competition between technologies is always productive for the consumer. 

Some 'feminists' are not blind to the cataclysmic sexual devaluation that women will experience when such technologies reach the market, and are already moving to seek bans.

Such bans will not be possible, of course, as VR sex technologies are inseparable from broader video game and home theater technologies.  Their attempts to lobby for such bans will be instructive, however. 

Another positive ramification of advanced adult entertainment technologies is that women will have to sharpen the sole remaining attribute which technology cannot substitute - the capacity to make a man feel loved.  Modern women will be forced to reacquaint themselves with this ancient concept in order to generate a competitive advantage.  This necessity could lead to a movement of pragmatic women conducting a wholesale repudiation of misandry masquerading as 'feminism' that has created this state of affairs, and thus will be the jolt that benefits both men and women. 

3) Globalization : The Third Horseman is a vast subject that contains many subtopics.  The common theme is that market forces across the world eventually find a way around legislative fences constructed in any one country :

a) Islam : Aside from the higher birthrates of Muslims living in the same Western cities that 'feminists' reside in, an Achilles heel of leftists in general and misandrists in particular is their unwillingess to confront other cultures that actually do place restrictions on women.  In Britain, Islamic courts are now in operation, deciding cases through Sharia principles.  British divorce laws are even more misandric than US divorce laws, and so many British men, in desperation, are turning to Sharia courts in order to avoid the ruin that British law would inflict on them.  

The Islamic courts are more than happy to accomodate these men, and 'feminists' dare not protest too loudly.  By driving British men to Sharia courts, misandry is beautifully self-defeating.  The irony is that the group that was our enemy in the War on Terror will be indirect yet valuable allies in the 'War on Misandry'. 

b) Expatriation : While America continues to attract the greatest merit and volume of (legal) immigrants, almost every American man who relocates to Asia or Latin America gives a glowing testimonial about the quality of his new life.  A man who leaves to a more male-friendly country and marries a local woman is effectively cutting off a total of three parasites in the US - the state that received his taxes, the potential wife who would take his livelihood, and the industries he is required to spend money on (wedding, diamond, real estate, divorce attorney).  Furthermore, this action also shrinks the number of available men remaining in America.  The misandrists who project their pathology outward by calling such men 'misogynists' are curiously troubled that these same men are leaving the US.  Shouldn't 'feminists' be happy if 'misogynists' are leaving?  We thus see yet another example of 'feminists' seeking to steal from men while not providing them any benefit in return. 

The more unfair a place becomes, the more we see talented people go elsewhere.  When word of US divorce laws becomes common in India and China, this might even deter some future taxpayers from immigrating to America, which is yet another reason the government is losing money to misandry. 

c) Medical Tourism : The sum total of donor eggs + IVF + surrogacy costs $150,000 or more in the US, but can be done in India for just $20,000 at top-quality clinics that are building a strong track record.  While most customers of Indian fertility clinics are couples, there have been quite a few single men opting to create their own biological babies this way.  While this avenue is not for everyone, the ability to have a child for $20,000 (and even two children in parallel with two different surrogates in a two-for-one bundle deal for $35,000) now exists.  The poor surrogate mother in India earns more than she could earn in 10 years in her prior vocation of construction or housecleaning.  It is a win-win for everyone involved, except for the Western woman who was priced out of the market for marriage to this man. 

Medical tourism also prices the US healthcare system out of contention for certain procedures,

The US healthcare system employs a large number of women, particularly in administrative and bureaucratic roles that pay them over twice what they could make in the private sector.  Such women will experience what male manufacturing workers did a generation earlier, despite the increasinglly expensive government bubble that has kept these women's inflated salaries safe for so long. 

So as we can see, the forces of globalization are far bigger than those propping up the current lop-sided status quo. 

4) Male Economic Disengagement and Resultant Tax-Base Erosion : Earlier passages have highlighted how even the most stridently egomaniacal 'feminist' is heavily dependent on male endeavors.  I will repeat again that there will never, ever be a successful human society where men have no incentive to aspire to the full maximum of their productive and entrepreneurial capabilities. 
The contract between the sexes has been broken in urban America (although is still in some effect in rural America).  The 'progressive' income tax scale in the US was levied under the assumption that men who could earn 10 times more than they needed for themselves would always do so, for their families.  A man with no such familial aspirations may choose an easier job at lower pay, costing the state more than he costs himself.  Less tax revenue not just means fewer subsidies for single mothers and government jobs for women, but less money for law enforcement.  Less tax revenue also means fewer police officers, and fewer court resources through which to imprison men.  The 'feminist' hypergamous utopia is not self-financing, but is precariously dependent on every beta man working at his full capacity, without which the government bubble, inseparable from the misandry bubble, collapses.  Misandry is thus mathematically impossible to finance for any extended period of time.  A state with a small government is far more sustainable than a state seeking an ever-expanding government, which then cannot be financed, and descends into a mass of contradictions that is the exact opposite of what the statists intended.  See the gangster capitalism that dominates contemporary Russia. 

In addition to the 4 which The Futurist provided in his Misandry bubble post here are two additional ones I came up with.

5) Rent Escort College Babes, Visit Asian Massage Parlors and take Overseas Sex Vacations over being in long term relationships

6) Find hobbies you enjoy doing which don’t include women. This could be playing video games, camping, riding motorcycles, playing golf etc.

This concludes my thoughts regarding Men on Strike Book by Dr. Helen Smith.
