Reader electricangel, inspired by the story of Pajamaboy (born in the year of president Butt Naked, in pajamas, cradling a mug of hot cocoa, winner of the 2015 Most Punchable Shitlib Face contest), offers a theory for where it all went wrong.
“dear God, Where did we go wrong?”
Maybe sending our 27-year-old men in 1943 out to kill to make Eastern Europe safe for Stalinism, and to make China safe for Maoism had something to do with it? At a time when Europeans had begun to allow contraception (1930, Church of England), they still elected to kill off what Scrooge called “surplus population” and each other, and withdraw from the conquered planet that they had subdued.
PajamaBoy is what results when generation after generation you take the men whose high testosterone would have them reject a bad split in the ultimatum game and send them into a charnel pit. The men left behind literally lack the balls to take unreasonable stands in favor of injustice being punished that may, nonetheless, damage themselves.
I know computational geneticists tend to scoff at theories of wartime culling to explain postmodern European man’s effeminacy and race cucking, but thinking about it I can’t see why it’s so implausible. In 1918, France’s total male population was ~20 million. World War I inflicted ~1.4 total military deaths on the French male population (we can safely assume the vast majority of military dead were men). That’s a pretty significant 7% reduction in total Frenchmen, and an even greater proportionate reduction in the number of prime age Frenchmen who would be most likely to marry and have kids. (Back of envelope calculation, figure Frenchmen aged 20-40 in 1918 numbered around 5 million. WWI would have thus exacted a toll of a 28% reduction in the number of prime age Frenchmen! A poosy paradise for any men still alive at the end of the war!)
Assuming (and it’s a big assumption based on the notion that masculine men make riskier choices, especially in war) that the bulk of military men who died in the WWI flesh ripping machine had on average higher testosterone levels than the military men who laid low and survived, it’s not a huge leap to infer that 28% of prime age, post-WWI Frenchwomen had to go it alone or settle for one of the surviving low T betas. They would have kids with these beta males and, multiplied millions of conceptions later and then again as the process repeated itself through the meat grinder of WWII, bequeath White Europe the founding population of über betas who would, ninety years later, become bronies and race cucks and open borders nutjobs and Matt Yglesias.
Not a sermon, just a thought.
