The Cutting Floor - "Self Love is Bullshit"

This is an excerpt from my upcoming book that I deemed was actually too harsh and not really what I wanted to convey about self-love.  HOwever, my experiences listening to fat acceptance podcasts did provide some interesting insight that I thought should be shared here.

Additionally, in fair warning, there is a chance I may not publish this book.  It's turning out to be the darkest thing I've ever written and I do have some other concerns as well.  I will keep you updated if I decide to publish the book or not.

In preparation for another project, I found myself binging on a whole host of women-oriented podcasts.  They ranged from feminism to careerism to politics to art, but the one that caught my morbid attention was on fat acceptance.  Completely disagreeing with the premise and viewing the fat acceptance movement as a coping mechanism, it was actually very interesting to study something I believed held no veracity whatsoever.  But of all the interesting theories, viewpoints, sub-theories, and philosophies in fat acceptance the one that stood out the most was a concept called “Self-Love.” 

There is no official definition of it, but as far as I could tell “self-love” was separate from self-respect or self-confidence in that it went beyond merely respecting oneself and doing what was in your best interests.  It was more akin to asexuality wherein you didn’t need the love or approval of other people, and that loving yourself was not only necessary but sufficient unto itself.  It also held more in common with love from another person in that it was reaffirming, continual, and not merely an attitude or a policy one would hold such as “you should respect yourself” or “be confident in yourself.”  It was, in my opinion, a replacement for external love.

Though more click-bait than a verifiable trend, you’ve seen this anecdotally in recent years with women deciding to marrying themselves (or their dog, or their cat, there was even one where a woman married her degree).  In some of the career podcasts you could also see this “self-love” where the entire focus was myopically on a career for career’s sake and not any loved ones around them.  And the words “amazing,” “beautiful,” and “brave” no longer hold any meaning as they now function more like units of currency to show love for a fellow woman than anything those descriptive words would have meant.  But the unifying thing be it podcasts on fat acceptance or anecdotes in the real world was that self-love was insular.  It could be self-conferred.  And it didn’t matter what the external world thought, according to self-love, you could become your own printing press machine of love, making you infinitely wealthy in love and affection.

But for all the podcasts recorded, articles written, even books published, there is a much simpler word that encapsulates this all, including the nuanced theories and insular, independent aspect of self-love.  It’s called “masturbation.”  Because while one should certainly love themselves, and they should certainly have the self-respect and confidence to do as they please in life, taking the step to use self-love as a replacement for external love is the definition of masturbation. 

The origins of self-love harken back to the beginning days human’s existence and are certainly not relegated to women.  Narcissism, ego, arrogance, and traditional self-love have all been an unfortunate part of human nature.  But this new avant-garde, philosophical strain of self-love is more due to the self-esteem movement, which has been a defining trademark of the Millennials.

Lifetime Earnings Data of College Degrees About to Shit the Bed

Remember how desperate people, namely Boomers in education or CNN, always cite data about how "college graduates earn $1.2 million more over a lifetime" as proof any degree is a good degree?

Yeah, well that data looked at Boomers who graduated from college 50 freaking years ago.

New data is about to come out that I think will put that canard to rest.

You are Not the Patriarch. The State Is.

I'm about 7 short chapters away from finishing the book.  In the meantime I suggest you tune into this podcast by Jack Napier on account of two things.

It's link-worthy on two accounts. 

One, Rob makes an outstanding point that with such a large welfare state no man can be a patriarch, unless truly rich. 

Two, the story about how Jack went to jail and lost his virginity on his father's birthday is also worth tuning in.

More Proof Productive Americans Should Avoid Corporate Careers Like the Plague

To quote Tom Cruise's character, Les Grossman from the movie "Tropic Thunder:"

"What is it pecker-breath?  I'm incredibly fucking busy right now."

Which I am writing this damn book, so here's the short analysis of this article showing stupid people doing stupid things.

Corporate America's main strategy is to virtue signal to various groups, but specifically women.

Corporate America and some state and even national governments have made it policy to give women quotas at the executive and BOD, and preferential treatment over all.

But these women and younger women in general (though not all) have been heavily influenced, if not, outright indoctrinated into believing that identity politics not only has value, but is their religion.  And they will carry this pseudo-political religion into Corporate America.

And when enough women achieve positions of power, not through merit, but through their politics or outright sexual discrimination, a critical mass will be attained that corporations will not longer be able to function efficiently and effectively.  Matter of fact they will become office politics shit shows because, once again, notice how petty and pathetic these politically motivated women are amongst themselves.

Whether you are a male or female, straight or gay, and whatever your race, if you are reading this site you are smarter than the average bear and appreciate meritocracy, excellence, and hard work.  And if you appreciate those things, as well as have the simple self-respect not to work in a psychological hell hole, you will avoid corporate America like herpes and join the 1099 Superior Race.

The Demand Side for College as a Luxury Consumer Good

"Colleges are now “ranked” not only by their academic status, but also by whether they are a “party school” and/or whether they have good looking students (these typically go hand in hand). One would think that a college administrator would be aghast at seeing his institution ranked high in a list of “party schools.” And yet the entrepreneurial administrator can secure more applications—and ultimately more revenue—via a “work hard/party hard” school brand. (This moniker is acceptable to both parents and students—see the Duke students pictured below)."
