I see lots of people who proclaim they are looking forwards to the reset.
There is an old saying, “Paybacks are a bitch”, and the meaning was they were a bitch for BOTH parties, so sure, in a reset you may well get a wimminz offering you herself and both her hot teenage daughters in a kinky as anything you can imagine foursome, in exchange for shelter for the night and a 99c hamburger each.. but…
But, you yourself will be no saint when times get that hard, why pay 99c for something you can take for free, and if you can take it, so can anyone else, from you too.
Prepper? Buddy, the only bullets that count are the ones you are actually carrying on you, AND, that you can send downrange accurately.
Short of these sorts of “full” reset, things still aren’t pleasant, the Weimar Republic, the collapse of the Soviet Union, these things all look one way from a distance, from afar, from the uninvolved, but for those personally going through it, deeply unpleasant.
There is a meme going around in the manosphere, where a guy in his late thirties says to a wimminz in her late thirties “bitch, you didn’t want me when I was 18, I don’t fucking want you now you’re 38”
If there *is* a fucking reset, you’ll need guys like me (tradesmen with physical trade skills and trade experience) to keep you all alive, and I mean that literally, and frankly, our attitude is going to be the same as the guy above to the cock carousel rodeo imminent wall impact 38 year old skank ho…. so your *reset* is going to stagger, as indeed it did in Russia, sure, many of the tradespeople “turned up” for work even though they hadn’t been paid in cash by their employers for months or years, but they ate at work and so on and mainly they didn’t bust their asses… so it was a survival strategy, not a charitable act.
“let’s re-negotiate the deal that I offered you previously….”
See, this is a truism in human nature, unless you have personally atoned for and learned *sufficient* contrition for your acts, you will do those same acts again, absolute certainty. Trust me on that.
Unless the personal “cost” to you of said acts of contrition and atonement *significantly* exceed both the cost and opportunity cost of whatever it was you did that sucked, then the contrition ain’t sufficient.
YOU have to find your actions more revolting than I do.
YOU won’t, as long as you have freedom to choose otherwise, if you were any different, you wouldn’t have acted in these ways.
You cannot “learn your lesson” and still be the same person, the lesson changes you, or it was not learned… end of.
So if there is a *reset* it isn’t the case that all the men who have had their hands burnt get their chance to get even, and start having kinky foursome sex with skank ho mommy and her twin daughters in exchange for a 99c burger, because the men too will be in a different headspace, if we are playing at the struggle for survival scenario then the 99c burger will be more attractive to you than the 4some with ms skank and her twin mini skanks, plus, and this really is crucial and sets the men apart from the boys who will soon be dead, that is 3 to 1 odds against you… they *will* be able to take you down, and no you *won’t* be expecting it, because if you were, you would not have permitted 3 skanks inside your innermost defensive perimeter (you naked and chilling) in the first fucking place.
One of my favourite sayings is “The difference between theory and reality is greater in reality than in theory” and it is particularly true in this case.
I can speak with some experience when I say to the skank ho’s, one of the very last things I will want from you, or that you will be able to offer me, is the use of your cunt. When that is all you have to offer, you are as good as dead.
When I say lets sit down and re-negotiate the deal I offered previously, I do NOT mean I am even more dom and you are even more sub, oh, and your daughter gets thrown in to the pot too.
What I mean is IN ADDITION to the sexual stuff which was part of the initial offer, which is now put aside a bit, tell me about your ability to knit, darn, sew, cook and prepare from scratch, do laundry by hand, scrub floors by hand, scavenge, not attract trouble, stay healthy and active, fetch and carry.
And for my part, in exchange for all this additional shit, I am now offering a lot less than I was previously.
Hey AfOR, you’re such an asshole, you’ll never make a sale…
You’re assuming I need to.
I do not *NEED* to enter into any arrangement with any wimminz that does not show me being ahead on the deal, and that is now… if there is a partial or full reset, I will be even more mercenary about it, not less, because frankly I won’t be ABLE to be as relaxed about shit as I am now, it will be survival time, remember…..
Nobody in an economic crash sits there drooling over a triple black barracuda with a big block 454, what happened to the bluesmobile, I traded it for a microphone.
Honda C90 now, that’s an object of desire.
And that’s the point, really, the theory and reality thing, if there is a full reset, the Honda C90 is worth more than your 454 and your wife and your twin daughters and your rolex and your own fucking life come to that.
I can manhandle a C90 over any obstruction too big to ride over, it’s tough and reliable, it’s quiet, and I can carry enough fuel in a rucksack to drive it 200 miles, on metalled roads I can strap two jerrycans of fuel to it and travel 1,000 miles at 30 mph.
This guy isn’t me, but he is local, and proof that some of the younger ones still do the same shit we did. He may not know it, but he is learning invaluable life survival lessons.
