Blue Pill Example#1 Trending Video on YouTube today is titled "Alpha Males Do Not Exist" (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by Endorsed Contributormallardcove

Not going to link that garbage but the #1 trending video on YouTube today is this video of a John Oliver look alike skinny fat hipster glasses wearing loser preaching to us about why there is no such thing as an alpha male.

As someone who works in the media myself I can attest first hand that the media and establishment structures doing all they can to attack real men is not by accident. It is by design. The goal is to weaken men and make them effeminate losers who are easy to walk over. Strong, masculine men are the #1 enemy to the global establishment.

Here is the deal. Most men will see this video, and articles like "Why women prefer dad bods" and "Real men date single moms" and other filth aimed at weakening strong men and actually believe its the case. These videos, while pathetic, are actually a good thing as most men will run with them as fact and do just that. They will stop lifting and get that dad bod. They will stop trying to act masculine and be threatened by their masculinity. They will try to rope in that catch of a single mom. Why, because the media told them to. Media = brainwashing. It's a good thing because it thins the herd. It makes getting into that Top 20% or Top 10% or Top 5% of men that much easier. To the point where simply lifting, eating right, staying in shape, dressing well, having good posture and not having an awkward demeanor will put you into the Top 20% by default.

These videos are good for the individual male who is looking to climb the ladder in the male hierarchy. Unfortunately its bad for men and society as a whole. The weaker men get, the easier it will be for oppressive establishment operatives to trample our rights and walk all over us with more tyranny and freedom/liberty stripping actions.


[–][deleted] 252 points253 points  (11 children)

To be fair, the bit on David Mech is true. Originally he invented the idea of wolves following a hierarchy with an alpha wolf on top. But subsequent research found that the hierarchy is based on familial relations (if 'familial relations' is appropriately used in a wolf context) rather than dominance.

But this is not to say that the idea of alpha and dominance did not exist before David Mech. This idea predates Mech's research on wolves by millennia. The logical fallacy made here is that the idea of a dominant alpha human male was born out of Mech's research, which is completely fucking stupid.

[–][deleted] 78 points79 points  (2 children)

Yeah....I had to watch it too.

Massive straw man. Alpha/Beta doesn't depend on Mech's work.

Also, according to Frans de Wall (sp?), alpha chimps don't always win....because if they are too dictatorial, they get taken down by the #2 & #3 chimps cooperating.

Which, again, hardly matters.

So many layers of subtly our detractors do not get. Jocko Willinck, a dude so Alpha he has Jock in his name, teaches to lead "up and down the command chain". Etc. On & on.

[–]grandaddychimp 57 points58 points  (1 child)

Yep, "alpha" is just a word that describes exhibition of genetics and behaviors that women find sexually attractive and get their dopamine flowing. "Beta" is exhibition of genetics and behaviors that women find preferable for long term relationships and are good for bonding/oxytocin, like being a provider of resources/emotional validation/attention, etc.

Even TRP sidebar introduction says that no man should strive to be 100% alpha, but a healthy mixture of alpha and beta.

[–]2comment 6 points7 points  (1 child)

David Mech's book popularized it, but didn't invent it.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpha_(ethology)#Canines

[–]Senior Endorsed Contributormax_peenor 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It was shit science all around and he was actually wrong the second time too. Ultimately, the deal was not that wolves have pack alphas or not, but the circumstances that cause it. Sometimes they do. Sometimes they do not. Stress situations cause pack changes, which is pretty much the same for ALL pack animals. Watching a single pack in a single place and drawing any conclusions was retarded.

[–]rathyAro 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What about the point that our close relatives don't follow the alpha/beta structure either?

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

The bonobos? I am not well versed on the topic of bonobos to be taken seriously so take my comment with a grain of salt, it's pure conjecture.

But it's yet another bad argument. The fact that bonobos are matriarchal does not mean they do not follow the alpha / beta structure. At the core, the idea about the alpha and beta are that there are individuals (alphas) who have certain traits that make them more successful sexually and socially than others (betas). Any person who would disagree with this idea is a complete fucking moron in my opinion. You can have a matriarchal society with alpha and beta females. The only thing that changes between a matriarchy and patriarchy is who has the power and who is more dominant.

Frankly, the stereotype the video attacked is one of a pompous douchebag that tries way too hard, not an alpha. I can get behind that cause, somewhat. It's quite easy to spot losers that take alpha traits and embody them to ridiculous extremes. They become aggressive rather than assertive, cocky rather than confident, trying way too hard to get girls and so on.

[–]Darth_Antonius 58 points59 points  (22 children)

There's also the part where they show matriarchy as more dominant than a patriarchy. Lol, name me a human matriarchal society that isn't a primitive shithole.

[–]WhorehouseVet 47 points48 points  (9 children)

I can't even name one matriarchy society.

[–]Darth_Antonius 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Exactly, the only ones that exist are small, tribal communities in extremely isolated locations. They're that forgettable.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (6 children)

My ex: "Native Americans were matriarchal!"

Me: "Yes, and they got fucking smashed by the white man's superior culture and technical innovation. Regardless of your feelings and opinion, nature don't give no fucks. You take what you want or you get nothing."

Her: "But if we continue down this path there will be nothing left but war and destruction for future generations! We need a matriarchal society to achieve peace and love!"

Me: "No, all that will do is weaken our society/tribe so that we get dominated by another patriarchy you dumb bitch. What we need is controlled outlets for healthy masculinity. This is why we have the hunger games."

Her: "Oooh."

[–]scalyblue 6 points7 points  (4 children)

The only part of the White Man's culture that smashed Native Americans was their propensity to live alongside cattle and rats for thousands of years prior to crossing the Atlantic. Native Americans got smashed by smallpox, trichonosis, and leptospirosis, not patriarchy, and not superior technology.

If the Native Americans hadn't been literally decimated by European diseases, they would have had no difficulty kicking the Europeans off the continent.

[–]yizolo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's where I was going with this. Some estimates put the loss of Native Americans at 98%, meaning instead of dealing with the armies of hundreds of thousands like the Spanish conquistadors in Central America, the notion of "Manifest Destiny" stood against armies of no more than a few thousand at most.

    [–]Casanova-Quinn 46 points47 points  (9 children)

    Not to mention he straight up lied. Adam falsely states the Bonobos are more closely related to humans than Chimps. The source that he cited actually does not say that.

    "The bonobo is a sister species to the more widespread common chimpanzee, Pan troglodytes, and the two share equal footing as our nearest primate kin." —NYT

    [–]BullshittingNonsense 24 points25 points  (7 children)

    Plus, who would wanna live in bonobo society? It seems awful. I'd much rather gangster chimps who patrol their territory and kill for fun. Note: Not being sarcastic whatsoever. I think if chimps wanted to, they could just conquer the bonobos.

    [–]TheTonkatank 20 points21 points  (5 children)

    but chimps are mean and violent. bonobos use sex to solve their problems. doesnt that sound great? they also eat their young but dont tell anybody.

    [–]TheRedThrowAwayPill 29 points30 points  (3 children)

    > Use sex to solve problems.

    > Kill their babies

    So, basically, like female humans?

    [–]lipidsly 4 points5 points  (2 children)

    Its more like bonobos are feminist society versus chimp patriarchal society

    [–]Senior Endorsed Contributormax_peenor 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    And ultimately the chimps could eliminate the entire bonobo genetic line if they wanted to do it.

    Not something they talk about in social justice classes.

    [–]BullshittingNonsense 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    Bonobo society is basically modern society on acid in a few years if we continue on this path

    [–]-ATLAS-_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Don't forget, even in bonobos society, the battle is for the beta males as a resource. The different women literally collect them up. It literally is about who has the most orbiters, it starts with their children, but if I remember correctly (and I could be wrong), when one female socially displaces another in the ladder, she takes the orbiters from the other. I don't think they take each other's children, but there were instances where it occurred. Again, I could be wrong, but I do remember the whole thing being fascinating and thinking it was a playbook for how women in high school ran their social circles except for the two women having sex after they fight to settle things down. Pretty much everybody gets laid but the lower male monkeys.

    Feminism is big fucking money in the entertainment industry. I work in the music industry and I've seen it first hand with Beyoncé hijacking the feminist narrative for profit. Masculinity is seen as toxic so you can't make money off of it.

    [–]we_kill_creativity 160 points161 points  (78 children)

    Is that what happened with gangsta rap? No...seriously, is that what happened there? It just kind of stopped all of a sudden and the current breed of rappers all look, sound, and talk like little boys going through puberty.

    [–]Gadnuk_ 84 points85 points  (5 children)

    Gangsta rap has been rife with redpill truths for decades.

    They were some of the earliest to identify AWALT principles, branch swinging, alpha fucks vs beta bucks etc., likely realizing that despite the Disney narrative the chicks were ignoring good hard working nice guys in favor of abusive drug dealers and badass gangsters.

    "Bitches ain't shit but hos and tricks"

    "A bitch is a bitch"

    "We don't love these hoes"

    "Bitch, I'm out yo pussy when I nut, for real"

    "I'm the type to wear a bullet proof condom and still pull out"

    They saw their fellow black men being used and abused by women and wrote street poetry to tell the tale. Nothing happens in a vacuum, and sexist lyrics weren't just a coincidence. Tupac was a real nice guy in his earlier work until he was hit with a phony sexual assault charge, you can literally hear his anger phase in his later music.

    [–]dizzyoak1 8 points9 points  (1 child)

    "I'm the type to wear a bullet proof condom and still pull out"

    Big Sean wouldn't be the best reference to use if you're gonna talk about "gangsta rap".

    [–]Actanonverba11 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Tupac learned the hard way that bitches ain't shit.

    [–][deleted] 127 points128 points  (33 children)

    Look at how beta Jay Z has gotten. Beyoncé is the alpha in that relationship.

    I'm assuming you mean the new breed of trap music known as "mumble rap" coming out of Atlanta, Chicago, and New York. I can't say for sure but I think it's a combination of the influence of southern accents and abuse of codeine cough syrup. Add in a little ghetto fabulous flair and you have rappers like Chief Keef, Desiigner, Migos etc...

    Gangsta rap isn't dead. The west coast is still holding on strong. Look at TDE and the members of Black Hippy. Kendrick, Schoolboy Q, Ab Soul, and Jay Rock are going on strong.

    [–]follow_that_rabbit 56 points57 points  (11 children)

    Can't remember where but i read an article that said that beyonce made jay z apologize for the use of the words faggot, gay and such in his first albums like Reasonable Doubt, Blueprint etc. It's sad that an icon of my youth went down like that just because of his marriage that was 100% a marketing move and a merge between 2 great firms

    [–]Senior Contributordr_warlock 27 points28 points  (5 children)

    Jay Z, a billionaire, giving any shits about what millionaires and the plebs think. Either he's beta or someone higher up the foodchain is pressuring him. The latter is a scary thought.

      Definitely. Young black men are looking up to these guys as their heroes. All it will do is get them hooked on opioids, in trouble with gangs and the law, and perpetuate poverty and violence in their neighborhoods.

      At least Tupac had a political conscious.

      [–]lispychicken 14 points15 points  (4 children)

      and I was just told recently here on reddit that music doesnt influence our youth. Told this by someone who didnt want that to be true, of course.

      Lolol yeah cuz highschool kids never tried to act like drake before or idolized migos or nicki minaj before.

      [–]lispychicken 5 points6 points  (1 child)

      as soon as some popular musician has a style, it's copied by some dumb 16yr old.. hell we all did it. I'm old enough to have worn Hammer pants because "that cool MC Hammer guy does". How many kids thought being a gangbanger was cool because NWA and Ice T spoke about it? a LOT!

      But when you try to hold those musicians and that culture responsible, it's "no, it's just music, it doesnt influence like that".. it's such an ignorant statement to make, it has me wondering if secretly, there's a culture-hating group out there purposely trying to downplay the truth.

      [–]xRisingSunx 30 points31 points  (0 children)

      Yep Kids never did drugs like the Beatles, or became whores like Madonna, or sold drugs like Biggie Smalls, or donned skinny jeans like Fallout Boy. None of that music had ANY influence on youth culture, Nope sure didn't (closes ears) LALALA LALALALA LALALA /s

      Gangsta rap isn't dead. The west coast is still holding on strong.

      Houston is still putting out great music that isn't mumble rap.

      Just being from the south and high off codeine isn't an excuse to put out garbage music, otherwise UGK would've been shit. Chicago/Atlanta rappers legit can't speak English even in interviews because they are being raised in a pocket third-world county. This video is an example..

      [–]acetylcysteine 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      my whole thought on this "new rap" is that it sells to the masses (aka white girls and white teen boys). growing up i mostly listened to rap and my music choices were always laughed upon/frowned upon jokingly by my friends.

      [–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (3 children)

      Personally i had a similar idea. Rap, like Geto Boys, Cypress Hill, Ice Cube yada yada. Overnight it changed to being all about bling bling.

      Get people away from knowing about hardships of inter city life and get them doing something useful from an economic robber baron stand point like everyone else. Use the rappers as a vehicle to promote hyper consumerism.

      While the US rap/hip hop scene is getting worse, here in the UK, artists like Skepta and Bugzy Malone have recently started to be making great grime music (British Rap) which appeals to a lot of masculine men. I’d recommend people who miss old rap to give it a listen.

      [–]ldosinrbfj 8 points9 points  (3 children)

      Recently started? The British grime scene has been on this for a solid ten years with the OG's like Tempa T, Crazy Titch etc recently it has just become mainstream with skepta and then Stormzy followed suit. But then proving mainstream influences his song "Birthday Girl" is so feminine as well (catchy though I can't deny)

      [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      Yeah the point I was trying to make that it is now mainstream. I was a fan of Stormzy’s early music but I don’t like the direction he’s taking, doing songs with girlbands disappointed me.

        As part of my community service I've been helping with this no contact boxing program for old people with parkinsons and it's cemented in my mind that "alpha" is a thing. I'm working with 15 or so dudes all in their late 60's at least and you can just tell who the studs were back in the day. It's not to say the other guys are less of a man or anything like that, they just don't have "it" and I'm not going by body type or even profession as what they did before retirement doesn't seem to correlate much with their presence in person.

        [–]Im_no_imposter 123 points124 points  (19 children)

        It claims that aggressive behaviour and an angered state of mind portrays what an "alpha male" is, whereas in actuality a real alpha male isn't irascible and remains nonchalant but stern.

        [–]Zenonlite 81 points82 points  (5 children)

        Yeah, the whole video stinks of the Strawman Fallacy since they're misconstruing what an "alpha male" is. They also don't even acknowledge the sexual attraction aspect of it. (They only briefly mention that woman are attracted to alphas in the beginning but then they never address it again).

        [–]BullshittingNonsense 28 points29 points  (0 children)

        Meanwhile all the guys just about to get red pilled are thinking: "Yeah it does seem like women all go for that kind of guy... Oh wait the 'funny' man is talking again. Let me pay attention."

        [–]kellykebab 15 points16 points  (3 children)

        The entire video is a massive straw man patched together with non sequitors. There's a bizarre transition where he switches from criticizing alpha males to alpha wolves as if they're the same thing. No one gives a fuck about alpha wolves. Such a slimy trick.

        I already hate that 'Adam' type (i.e. conventional wisdom is always the opposite of reality, only I have the true answer, nuance never exists), but the agenda is so utterly blatant with everything this guy says. Like every moment is scripted perfectly for disgruntled 21 year olds who have never held a job.

        Such ridiculous pandering.

        It also implies that any form of anger or aggression is weakness.

        I get the sense that shaming male "aggression" or "anger" is a manipulative tactic to force men to submit to the whim of a decaying civilization.

        There are times when you should be angry and aggressive and fight back. It's a good and necessary emotion to have when harnessed, directed, and controlled.

        If another man attempts to capture your village, kill your brothers, rape your women, are you going to be nonchalant? No.

        "Suffering is the origin of consciousness." - Dostoevsky

        I admire the stoics but they seem resigned to the idea of enduring suffering without reaction. Seems like slavery to me.

        [–]2 Senior Endorsed Contributorvengefully_yours 42 points43 points  (2 children)

        Stoic also means you do not lament killing the invaders. You don't start shit unless you have to, but if someone starts shit with you make damn sure you finish it. "He pulls a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue!" Peace through superior firepower. Speak softly and carry a big stick.

        It's not roll over and let them take what they want while you cower in the corner. They want us to be passive, non aggressive, cowering and dependent upon them so we don't bite the hand that feeds us the scraps.

        [–]ChadThundercockII 2 points3 points  (1 child)

        I live in a part of he world where doped up faggots harass and steal from honest working people, at knife point. I engage in criminal activities myself, but still from poor people who work 12 hours a day and have a family to support so you can buy more drugs is not how I see a man carry himself. The government is corrupt and often uses these people to terrorize the population and create a need for their structure. Thats basic every day life in a 3rd world country. the question is: do I gather a group of like minded men and start planting knives in the necks of these low-lives?

        [–]Im_no_imposter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        Yeah I should've mentioned that despite what I said, alphas are not afraid to act aggressively if it's necessary.

        [–]cherryCanSuckMyDick 9 points10 points  (0 children)

        whereas in actuality a real alpha male isn't irascible and remains nonchalant but stern.

        I like to think the best example of an alpha is Gandalf. Hes friendly, warm, and the truest friend you could ever ask for, but he doesnt kiss anybodys ass, he speaks his mind frankly when necessary, and he doesnt tolerate fools lightly.

        And guess what. Everybody. Fucking. Loves. Him.

        All this is is a straw man based on a woman's ridicule and then parroted back as some lame attempt to AMOG the Alpha men that Betas despise.

        You'll notice that they entirely ignore the well documented facts about women and Ovulatory Shift. They ignore that women prefer masculine, dominant men in their pre-ovulatory phase and feminized men in their luteal phase. This never gets mentioned, because it's too inconvenient.

        Neither do they want to confront the well-documented fact that Hypergamy creates masculine dominance hierarchies. Instead they focus on terminology without considering that the term Alpha is an abstraction of an idea. They do this because they already accept that men are ridiculous and follow it up by more self-defeating ridicule of men (themselves) in the hope that it will absolve women of their true sexual preferences, Hypergamy and maybe seem endearing to some woman, somewhere, because they've been taught that vulnerability in men is Game.

        Fuck it, everything is too hard, too difficult to do, you'll never achieve anything so why TRY? That's the attitude I play when people roll their eyes and call bullshit when I mention I fuck hot young girls half my age easily. I put in the work, achieved the difficult, did the formerly impossible a few times as well, and now I reap the benefits. It's not all that arduous or impossible, but you need to grow up and do it.

        [–]Queefums 11 points12 points  (1 child)

        Eh I was just looking and all the top comments are mocking guys who think of themselves as alpha

        [–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (7 children)

        Comment section was worthy as a post itself; it shows a wide array of people's support and opinion on what 'alpha' is. There's people calling others who believe the video betas. People defending masculinity and the concept of alpha males against feminist. People saying that alphas are aggressive, assertive, abusive assholes. Other's pointing out the misconstrued definition of alpha to a selfish cocky prick (aka bad boy) instead of the confident in control real man.

        A lot of the misunderstanding to people seems to be that alphas are assertive and aggressive. While it may seem similar it is entirely different. Anyone can be assertive, however, alphas need to make a proposal and seal the deal. Saying what you want and getting what you want are two different things requiring a gaping gap of different qualification. Alphas also aren't aggressive physically as much as socially, this misunderstanding can be attributed to how most alphas will be fit from lifting and that natural pseudo alphas are mostly athletes, large intimidating males and edgy sketchy hipsters. Of course these natural pseudo males don't have the control and understanding of real alphas so they can be anger and will be tempted into being physical.

        [–]SamuraiPizzaCatz 2 points3 points  (6 children)

        All alphas fight. Chimpanzees, the animal people always point to when making cases for human behavior, typically attain their alpha status by beating the shit out of the old alpha and ruling over the other chimps with an iron fist.

        You punching me in the face and kicking my ass would be the most alpha thing in the world if I were better than you. However, humans don't look at it like that and see people who fight as weak and cowardly, considering all the comments about stoicism being better than aggressive/emotional responses.

        Humans don't have alphas in the standard alpha/beta dynamic sense. There are definitely leaders, strong men, etc, but no alphas. If people want to label the human alpha as 'alpha' for ease of language, that's one thing, but people saying there aren't any human alphas is a very legit statement.

        [–]halfback910 1 point2 points  (5 children)

        Only because physical confrontation is their only form of confrontation, right?

        We have other forms of confrontation. That doesn't make it not confrontation? And it doesn't make it not valid confrontation. In an animal society, physical attributes are the ones that matter. Therefore proving your physical attributes are superior is enough to demonstrate to 100% satisfaction that you are superior. For the majority of animals, mental faculties make very little difference.

        That's not true for humans. I know people who could beat the shit out of me who are not superior to me/more useful than me in human society. Whereas a chimp who can beat the shit out of another chimp is totally more useful.

        It's part of why humans have always been into debate and arguments. That is a very real, very visible confrontation where one person emerges the victor almost unquestionably. People who are correct, smart, well-spoken, are useful. They are winners, good, etc. And debate is a confrontation that demonstrates that.

        [–]colucci 19 points20 points  (0 children)

        Pretty correct that human social hierarchies are fluid, somewhat.

        Still, the traits that make a man alpha - confidence and dominance, will put you on the top of most social hierarchies. That bit about dungeons and dragons is really out of context.

        [–]TheOriginalWasBetter 41 points42 points  (1 child)

        Most of the video is just him talking about animal behavior. Even if the origin of the term 'alpha male' is based on research that turned about to be wrong, so what? That's not an argument against the idea of what it means to be alpha. He then goes on to insinuate that being alpha means being a jerk, selfish, and antagonizing, which is not true. Just the same old strawman argument that not living your life based on other people's opinions is somehow being mean to them.

        No surprise they brought in the caracatures and ridiculous portrayals of what they think alpha men are, to push their narrative

        It's critique of male feminisation is top notch. A lot of people say Chuck Palahniuk's critique in Fight Club was the best, and whilst it is good, the writers of The Soprano's definitely did it better

        As someone who works in the media myself I can attest first hand that the media and establishment structures doing all they can to attack real men is not by accident. It is by design. The goal is to weaken men and make them effeminate losers who are easy to walk over. Strong, masculine men are the #1 enemy to the global establishment.

        If you're not bullshitting, that's a sinister agenda. I've heard people claim this before, that its why every aspect of our society, whether media, school, the law, is geared towards producing feminized men who can't stand up for themselves. I feel sorry for the poor bastards who grow up being pumped full of this nonsense with no male role models.

        [–]the_one_tony_stark 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        It doesn't help that the attack takes place on multiple fronts. Psychological, but also physical, with ADD "medication" and xeno-estrogens whenever you eat or drink out of most plastic containers.

        Guess what though media: your endless storylines haven't changed shit. The alphas are still successful and getting the girls, and the betas are still wondering why she won't give them a chance. All those billions wasted trying to push a lie..

        See, I was expecting the comment section to be flooded with feminists but I'm actually surprised it's full of beta cuck white knights with no balls actually saying words like "fragile masculinity". Man I knew men in general were f**ked but damn this is pretty sad. Hopefully in their lifetime they will learn that their paradigm is a complete lie taught to them by mommy, beta dads and the feminist agenda (yes all three of them respectively).

        The propaganda is real and I'm STILL trying to wrap my head around how this media fueled emasculation of man would be beneficial to society. Because at the end of the day our biology doesn't lie.... All women are attracted to alpha males.

        Idk why beta males are so convinced that an egalitarian society is literally the way to go, when that's not even what feminists truly want... it's total control that they want.

        So... If they get the control, money, power, whatever they want by all the betas giving it to them and they STILL crave/need an Alpha (even though they won't admit) then what is the point of all of this?

        [–]skywaspdefensive 9 points10 points  (2 children)

        This is some 2+2 = 5 shit and unfortunately I know a lot of men will happily gobble it up because It's comfortable . It's nice to think there is no male hierarchy , it's comforting to believe the reason you miss out on women , opportunities, and enjoyable social interactions has nothing to do with a deficiency with yourself .

        So just keep eating shitty food, keep watching football players and Lebron James having their testosterone and adrenaline be a surrogate for a lack of a connection with your own body and sense of masculinity .

        Just keep sitting on the couch and never realize the best being you can be because it'll make you , your friends, and everyone else around you feel better.

        It's fucking sad man just like HAES shit so many people will just fuck themselves over for comfort and they don't even realize they're doing it .

        Well 1. I love Adam's ruins everything. 2. From their perspective..they're not wrong. Look at how they defined "alpha male" in the video. they define as obnoxious chach morons.

        But in reality Adam right there is alpha. Well dressed dude, stylish, has charisma, displays confidence, displays intelligence. shows initiative. He even disagreed with the woman right there to her face and pulled her into his frame, has a successful youtube series that he writes, produces and performs in.

        I also liked how they used a roleplaying game as an example how human interaction is always in flux. It's fuckin roleplaying. It's not reality.

        Don't believe in the alpha/beta male dynamic? Join the military or even join a corporation. You'll find it really fast. It may or may not have genetic influences but it certain has societal influences.

        [–]anon35202 35 points36 points  (23 children)

        This is the meta in the video. The alpha is in the guy playing beta, and the beta is the guy being irritating and aggressive in an attempt to be something he isn't.

        Adam makes a point, and TRP has yet to put forward a reasonable rebuttal yet except to spew ad hominem on full blast, which is what most of you would call childish beta retaliation.

        he makes a point, lets address the points or else modify our ideas. Not rocket science. The anger here means people are afraid he may have a bit of a point. Anger in debate is the tool for the loser when the argument looks lost as a hail mary attempt at a rescue, without substance.

        [–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

        TRP has yet to put forward a reasonable rebuttal

        um, you just made the rebuttal...

        The alpha is in the guy playing beta, and the beta is the guy being irritating and aggressive in an attempt to be something he isn't.

        i know it's scripted, but he's a celebrity holding frame bouncing a pushy aggro loser. the guy they present as alpha demonstrates no alpha traits other than aggression, and numerous beta traits (like inability to hold frame).

        alphas absolutely exist in human and other primate social hierarchies. jordan peterson would wreck this kid. adam even mentions chimps here, and leaves off the fact that chimps ABSOLUTELY have alphas, but it's different from humans. female chimps do not have hypergamy, and will indiscriminately mate with any male that comes along. this makes it up to male dominance alone to determine which males pass their genes along.

        in contrast, human alpha dynamics are more complicated because of hypergamy. females intentionally try to mate only with the top 10-20% of available men. those men are alphas.

        and the joke about DND nerds doesn't change anything... a guy might be a loser in one social matrix and alpha in another. but in the societal matrix at large, the confident assertive guy with good fitness and a good job is top dog in most social matrices.

        Those trending lists are completely controlled by Youtube and driven by money, youtube promoting an image of itself, and political ideology of the company. They have nothing to do with views or subscriptions.

        I think the corporate feminist position is pretty transparent. Keep tearing down men and try to crack them like a pinanta and all there money and power will flow out of them and rain down on women and 'victimized groups.' The reality is that men will hold on their freedom and assets even tighter as the attacks ramp up. Men refusing to marry is a prime example of this shift.

        To the point where simply lifting, eating right, staying in shape, dressing well, having good posture and not having an awkward demeanor will put you into the Top 20% by default.

        We're already there. Hell, general self-confidence is becoming a rare commodity. I just got a job and dropped the fact that I lift during the interview, just because I wanted them to know that.

        I live in rural Illinois and if you know anything about this state then you know it's getting Venezuela levels of stupid around here economically. What I'm saying is that obviously we're competing for jobs, not the other way around. I managed to get them to offer me an extra $5,000/year before I accepted the offer. I mainly used techniques about "being alpha" that I learned here. So anyone that tells me "alpha males don't exist" can go fuck themselves. I do exist.

        I have watched his videos. Actually, others are good, but this one stands out with poor argumenting and weak points, even if you don't know about red pill, you will notice that. Guy is okay, he has just got wrong once.

        I actually remember seeing this video come up in my suggestions yesterday while I was browsing through YouTube but thanks to TRP I completely ignored the video because I know what it's about. I see the coordinated attacks I simply don't click that's all

        [–]Streik23 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        No, we do not exist. Nor should you talk about the Red pill club

        The censors have taken control of YouTube. Expect it to get much worse.

        This video got shared by some SJW FB friends recently, the conversation descended into "toxic masculinity" etc... what this video really shows is that there is no such thing as an alpha wolf and they twist that logic to say that strong masculinity does not exist. The word Alpha has come to embody the strong desirable masculine traits and the men that it accurately describes. Regardless of were the term Alpha originated

        It's a just a massive shit test tbh.

        They are hoping that this sort of societal engineering will turn everyone but the most Alpha of the Alphas into betas.

        Women try to turn men beta so they can find the ones that won't.

        You mean since TRP/PUA has become a mainstream thing large media outlets are trying to cash in on the alpha/beta dichotomy with videos like this to give some loser who doesn't want to put in effort hope and inspiration?

        Media/entertainment in a nutshell. Create a youtube video and let some snowflake losers feel good and get you hits. ALPHA MALES DON'T EXIST! BODY POSITIVE! OMG IM SUCH AN INTROVERT! I HAVE SUCH BAD SOCIAL ANXIETY!

        Just another case of vulture culture watering down thoughts and ideas to make a profit off hopeless losers.

        The video made some good points and at times was interesting, but I think he misunderstands what is meant by the term alpha male. The term alpha male is used to refer to someone with certain traits that most women find desirable. He seems to think of an "alpha male" as a dumb jock that likes to work out, play sports, and fuck bitches.

        At one point, he makes the argument that we shouldn't use the term because society is too complex. Someone who might be considered alpha in a night club might not considered an alpha male in a D&D circle. While this is true, it does not disprove that there are traits that are considered "alpha."

        Let's say that the jock character that Adam plays is exactly the same except he is an expert in D&D. Women in a D&D circle would be more likely to chose him over a D&D player who is physically and emotionally weak.

        Alpha male is a concept, not a stereotype. It is a set of physical and character traits that women find desirable. For a minute, let's imagine a society where women found men that are physically weak and emotionally insecure to be more desirable than men who are physically strong and emotionally confident. The weak man would be the alpha male and the strong man would be considered the beta male. However, as evolutionary sociobiology would tell us, this arrangement is impossible. A society like this would become dominated by a society like ours.

        Adam Ruins Everything is infotainment in its worst form, if you're looking to educate yourself. Blues actual facts and intermingles them with the host's personal opinions to guide viewers to outcomes he wants them to come to.

        It's ok for entertainment value if you find his annoying persona mildly funny like me, bad to base opinions on, if you want to be informed of anything besides humorously abridged history or studies.

        The kids bickering in this thread were worse than the video.

        Wondeful. Even more little bitchy backstabbers.

        [–]SILENTSAM69 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Well I guess it is more of a way of acting than something you are born as. Seems like they want to pretend no one acts that ways though. lol

        [–]beltwaytr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        I watched a clip of it and I couldn't help but laugh. As soon as he brought up humans being closer to an animal with Matriarchy and showed the alpha version of a female I turned it off. He literally contradicted his own argument.

        Searching for that video I found this one.

        You might be able to do away with the term "alpha male", but the qualities that encompass it will exist and will remain preferable. Confidence, assertiveness, and aggressiveness will always beat timidity, agreeableness, and submissiveness.

        I will bust out laughing at the fist cuck to ever say "real men date single moms" to me.
