The Crowding of Conceptual Space

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ikx5qF5Dao

I recently watched the speech RamzPaul gave for the 2015 Amren conference, and the major topic he spoke about this time was conceptual space. I won’t go into all the details here, as my purpose is to expound upon the video rather than reiterate it, but in short, the way I understand it is that conceptual space is our ability to tolerate our surroundings. Frequency and quality of social interactions are important, because even though we may live in a densely crowded area, or a small apartment, we can think out beyond the physical confines of our environment. In other words, the area in which we exist mentally is larger than the area in which we physically live in, therefore, we can exist in a physically crowded area without feeling the immediate pressure of our surroundings. However, this has limits and can be overstressed.

Things which put pressure upon our conceptual space can make us feel crowded and put upon regardless of how much physical space is around us. For example, a man might live in a farmhouse in the country, but if the government takes 90% of his income, censors his speech, limits his freedom of movement, forces him to interact with individuals and groups which he would rather not, and tells him that there will be penalties if he complains about any of these things, then he is going to feel squeezed, and rightly so.

RamzPaul brought up the example of Sweden, where the native people are expected to accept, condone, and support both homosexuality and Islam. Neither of those have anything to do with traditional Sweden, and neither of those concepts can be reconciled with one another. This creates an enormous mental strain in Swedes, regardless of whether or not they are willing to accept it. If they do accept this ideology, then they must perform a constant feat of mental acrobatics to reconcile the two ideas. If they do not accept it, then the paying of lip-service/homage and literally paying taxes to further these incompatible agendas is another source of stress.

Conceptual space is greater than a person’s physical environment, but it is limited. When a person’s conceptual space becomes overloaded, there is a strong temptation to give up/withdraw, and in fact many people do. In this concept, coping strategies (alcoholism, drug use, pornography, retreat into fantasy worlds, etc.) might be viewed as attempts to expand conceptual space, but in a different direction. I would say that conceptual space varies from person to person, just as all other characteristics vary to some degree between individuals. Ramsey Paul speculates that things like obesity, homosexuality, and the effeminate behavior of men are tied in with the lethargy that stems from an overcrowding of physical space.

Here are some factors which I believe put pressure on conceptual space, some are race and sex specific. In the samples that follow I will allude to other places but the main focus will be the US:

The PC Movement:

The PC movement contains a variety of subsets, but it puts ENORMOUS strain on the ability of many people to exist comfortably in this society. To a certain degree it affects anyone who is not in line with the PC/SJW/Cultural Marxist agenda, but it affects white people to a greater degree and especially men. The PC movement does not exist as a reaction to increased conservative or right wing activity, but rather the reverse is true. Conservative movements are largely reactionary in nature, while leftist movements are generally revolutionary. By revolutionary I mean they seek to subvert existing systems and lifestyles. In order to do this, leftists perpetuate the view that history exists on a continuum of perpetual movement towards greater freedom, which is in fact unsupported by history, but is what they teach nonetheless. That is why they say things like, “I can’t believe we still ____________ in 2013.” When the average conservative sees that sort of talk, we think something along the lines of “So what? Quit trying to muck with my stuff!” There is a complete and total disconnect between us and them.

In fact the PC movement is not taking anyone to a state of greater freedom but toward less, which is a natural outgrowth of how they view rights (positive liberty and dejure rights). The end result is that people are constrained. A person might lose their job for expressing non-PC views, and in some countries (England, Canada, Sweden, France) a person can be arrested. No one should have to worry about losing their job for expressing any views about economics, politics, gender roles, or immigration, and not everyone does, just those who express non-PC views.

This puts extreme pressure and constraints upon our conceptual space, as there are literally many places which are mind is NOT supposed to go, and if we express those thoughts we will be punished. The quality of life is greatly reduced.

The Depressed Economy:

The scarcity of jobs is a severe problem which reduces the quality of life, and it is a difficult thing to ignore. This affects everyone, but it affects men worse than women. Being unemployed or underemployed is a source of stress for anyone, especially when a person must, out of necessity, support themselves, and they cannot. That is a severe and constant stress which is difficult to ignore. However, men draw their self-esteem from their accomplishments, and a man’s inability to remedy a situation of unemployment or underemployment is a severe blow to his self-esteem. His inability to overcome the circumstances, whatever they might be, instantly reflects upon his value and purpose, and he can only conclude that he is surplus. Whether it’s because of his own inadequacies, or the structure of society, he has been made surplus. In order to compensate for the obviously diminished quality of life a man will engage in coping strategies, which could be anything from drugs or alcohol, to excessive videogaming, and even suicide.

A woman who is unable to overcome her economic situation might successfully market herself to a man who is financially stable or successful, and upon doing so she might find fulfillment through raising children, pursuing hobbies, and taking up the traditional female role of a housewife. No such option exists for men.

The Quality of Male-Female Relations:

The quality of male-female relations has been greatly reduced. What poisoned the well between men and women was the sexual revolution and feminism, but both sexes have been adversely affected by this, and equally so. It is true that the legal system is grossly biased in favor of women, but men have pursued a number of opt-out and workaround strategies. One of the reasons why Asian women are more popular than white women is because of how they treat men, or at least perceptions about how they treat men. A man with a little money might choose to marry someone from abroad, while other men give up entirely and go for pornography or immerse themselves entirely in videogames.

That being said, both men and women suffer from this. Instead of being with each other in peaceful, permanent, and mutually respectful relationships there is tension, struggle, distrust, disrespect, and infidelity. Why is it that there is a pop-culture song that says “love is like a battlefield” and “why does love always feel like a battlefield?”?

Battlefield (by Jordan Sparks): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYU9hrvIYUA

This is not the historical or traditional view of male-female relationships. Nor was love traditionally considered the basis or prerequisite for a successful marriage. Traditionally people got married to create families, and often, in many cultures, marriages were arranged. There is nothing inherently wrong with love marriages, provided that the persons involved are compatible, but love is NOT like a battlefield. This is another lie of modern culture. A woman cannot love a man without respecting him. If a woman is in a relationship with a man she cannot respect then she does not love him, she is in that relationship strictly for what she can get out of it.

When it comes to the female side of things, having sex does not mean that a man loves a woman. Uncommitted sex is really more akin to relieving oneself than an act of love, which is another pernicious lie of the modern culture stemming from the sexual revolution. Having sex is not “making love.” A lot of women engage in uncommitted sex because they think its love, but with every penis that goes inside of them their marketability as a marriage partner is reduced. In other words the more they “make love” the less likely they are to get into a situation where they are actually loved. A lot of men will plow the field when they’re younger, and then settle down with a younger woman when they are older. Women who try to do the same thing will most likely end up old and alone.

This is a huge break from traditional culture, and from the traditional way of doing things, and it is a continual source of stress for all parties involved.

Uncontrolled Immigration:

When I say “uncontrolled immigration,” I am referring to immigration that we the people do not want, but which we can do nothing about. We all know that certain types of immigrants are bad for us, both for our personal safety and for the economy. For years we have had to sit here and listen to Obama and the Democrats tell us that immigration from Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala is good for us, while the reverse is demonstrably and blatantly true. Not only that, but we have helplessly watched as the Democrats and the Obama administration have curtailed local and state initiatives to get the problem under some semblance of control.

The left presents itself as the advocate of both women AND immigrants, but they cannot be the advocate of both, as the interests of both run contrary to one another. A white or Asian man might look at a woman who catches their attention, but they will immediately look away of caught. Why? Because white and Asian men would generally prefer a mutually beneficial or at least consensual relationship with women, but that is of less importance to Central American men. Rape and violence towards women is much more prevalent in their culture, and in general their culture is much more sexual than ours is, in spite of the fact that they never had a sexual revolution. They never had a sexual revolution because they were never sexually restrained or inhibited in the first place.

They are not all that different than Muslims:

Last January, a national scandal flared up in this small mountain town over the wedding of a young girl.

Adolescent marriage is common in Guatemala, where roughly 40 percent of the population self-identifies with native indigenous cultures, rooted in tradition. But by law, girls must be at least 14 to marry. The girl from Almolonga was only 12. What drew national attention was the fact that the wedding was officiated by the town’s elected official, Mayor Edgar Leonel López de León.

When these men come here they don’t just leave their culture behind. Stepping across a border does not magically change anyone. If the liberals were really against perpetuating a “rape culture” then there would be a blanket ban on immigrants who come from actual rape cultures.

I have heard more complaints from more women than I can remember about Central American men staring at them blatantly and openly, and in some cases following them, or giving unwanted attention and propositions. I have even seen them staring at my mom, when we were living in Texas, and in that same neighborhood there was a white women who got raped by a Mexican while she was out running. No Mexicans lived in that neighborhood (as far as I knew), but they did come there to work on the construction sites.

If feminists want men to “avert their eyes,” or not give them a “rape stare,” then it makes no sense to import on a mass scale people who do this is a matter of habit.

When I lived in a ghetto-ish neighborhood, my wife was followed by three Mexicans. My wife is from India. When she was in India she used to go out for morning walks, but in our apartment complex she could no longer do that because men were following her. It was a new experience for her. At first she walked faster and farther throughout the apartment complex to see if she could lose them, but they kept following. Finally she returned to our one bedroom apartment to escape her pursuers. By going from the open space to the confined space she actually escaped the immediate crowding of her conceptual space, but her conceptual space remained under pressure while we were there because she could no longer go out for her morning walks.

Additional Factors:

There are more factors that stress our conceptual space, but I have not enumerated them all here because many of them can fit loosely under PC. Among those I would include the homosexual agenda/gay mafia and Islam. But those two really deserve entries of their own.

I could be described as a libertarian monarchist with religious leanings and sympathies towards anarchy and nationalism. I have realized that a lot of my views are reactionary. Most of the time it's when I see something I don't like that I feel inspired to write. I'm basically like a badger being poked with a stick. I'm fairly ornery when poked, but I don't wish people harm provided that they don't seek to harm me either directly or indirectly. I don't at all care for the left, and I am not at all happy that they are out to destroy my way of life and undermine my freedom. But one of my goals is to spread awareness as much as I can. My Manifesto in Short.: 1. Dejure rights and positive liberty are invalid concepts. Man in his natural state is free. He is free to create what he wants, occupy and defend a territory he exists in, associate with who he wants, wear what he wants, say what he wants, follow whatever religion he wants, and essentially do whatever he pleases. Government is an artificial imposition which requires force both to come into existence and to exist. Therefore, government is not in a position to grant freedom or rights, as those already exist prior to the institution of government. Government can curtail freedoms, but it can never give them. The only fully legitimate function of government is to protect the natural rights of others from being violated by forces which they are incapable of combating, for example, protecting a farmer from the Mongol invasion. Protecting someone from having their feelings hurt is not a legitimate function, as never having hurt feelings is not a natural right. 2. Freedom of association and speech are more important than anyone's feelings. Feelings are subjective, and there is no reason why one person's feelings are any more valid than anyone else's. A law to protect one person's feelings from being hurt is certain to harm another person's, therefore, feelings cannot be a basis for law. My freedoms do not end where another person's feelings begin. 3. Democracy is a failure, and it is predicated on faulty premises. In order for Democracy to work, two criterion must be fulfilled, 1) those who tally the votes must do so honestly, and 2) those who vote must be moral and intelligent enough to make wise and proper decisions. The first premise is impossible to prove, and the second is not true of most people, therefore, Democracy is a questionable endeavor at best, and ultimately doomed to failure. In fact, under the best of circumstances Democracy is mob rule, but aside from that it also opens the door to demagoguery, tribal politics, and lobbying. 4. Communism and Islam are no less evil than Nazism. Communism has killed more people than Nazism, and in fact Stalin alone killed more people than Hitler. Islam has killed, and continues to kill more people than Communism and Nazism together. The only reason why communism and Islam are given a free pass is because Cultural Marxists are in charge of education, the media, and entertainment. Cultural Marxists have decided to institute communism by attacking the culture, and they have recognized Islam as something which they can use as an ally (for the time being). That is why both of those toxic ideologies get a free pass, but really they should not. Hitler worked with both Communists AND Muslims before the allies entered the war, and during the war he continued to work with Muslims. If some guy were to go around in a Nazi uniform and goose-step and Sieg hiel as he walked down the street he would never be able to get a job. His life would be over, and he might even be met with physical violence. If a white guy did it then things would be even worse. However, Muslims are able to walk down our streets wearing their terrorist clothing, their robes and hijabs, which represent thousands of years of slaughter, antisemitism, and persecution of religious and ethnic minorities (not to mention violence against women), and people just let them go. I want a complete and indefinite hiatus on Muslim immigration, and I want us to start repatriating the Muslims that are already here. 5. I utterly reject the concept of the "social contract." I did not ask to exist, nor did I have any control over what part of the world I was born in, which people group I was born into, or what other groups might happen to exist around me. Since my existence is entirely involuntary, I cannot be held responsible for the fact that I exist, nor is my existence sufficient grounds to argue that I owe something to someone else. I do not owe anyone money, goods, or services simply on the basis that I exist or that they exist. 6. Collective guild is a rubbish concept. No one can help what group they are born into, and no one is born owing anyone else anything. Debt is the result of borrowing resources on some level, and having just entered in the world one does not have the capacity to borrow, or really do anything beyond the most basic biological functions. Therefore, the notion that one baby is born owing something to another baby is absurd at best. 7. I thoroughly support Israel. I fully admit to supporting Israel for religious reasons, but if those were not in place I would still support Israel out of enlightened self-interest. Israel fulfills the real world equivalent of the function Gondor serves in Tolkien's Middle Earth. By that I mean they are close to the evil army, and draw a lot of it's attention and focus, and in doing so they protect the west. The difference is, that in Tolkien's world the west does not actively seek to import orcs and other members of the evil army, behind Gondor's back, whereas our moron leaders in real life do constantly import the evil army. Also, Jews are not a monolithic group, There are both left wing and right wing Jews. Those who are on the left are not motivated by religion to do what they do, but by the perverse Marxist ideology which they have adopted in place of their religion.

  1. “Having sex is not ‘making love.’” THIS. I have said this for years and I think Andy is the first (and hopefully last) guy I’ve been with who actually agrees with me. I have always found that phrase disturbing too. To me, making love is more akin to having a good conversation, signing a mortgage together, seeing your children succeed. That’s not to say I find casual sex something that should be engaged in; sex belongs primarily in the context of a committed relationship for a multitude of reasons, but not because it is the epitome of love-making.

    I am really angry to hear that your wife was followed. I hope you consider encouraging her to learn to use firearms and/or take martial arts lessons. What a culture shock that must have been! I remember when I was in middle school– I grew up most of my childhood in a large townhouse/apartment complex (which I utterly detested and am glad to finally be living in a single house again for the first time in nearly 20 years; but that’s more a physical space issue), and mexicans took care of all the community’s yardwork. They would stare at us without blinking and, being 12 or 13, I would give them the bird. I realize afterwards how dangerous that was of me to do.

    1. I agree about love making, which really ought to involve acts of love, a you mentioned. Exchanging fluids alone isn’t enough. I wish you and Andy the best of luck. It looks to me like you will stay together, although I’m hoping you’ll reconsider about having kids. We need more patriotic and responsible people to have kids, and less of the other kind of people.

      A lot of guys want to have uncommitted sex, but it’s very dangerous to do so. Especially with STD’s and rape accusations. I’ve met women online (back when I was single) who were married and wanted to cheat on their husbands.

      Yea she wants to take martial arts and learn how to shoot. The only problem right now is that there is no time.

      Oh yes, a crowded physical space can still bring people down. I think if you’re an introvert it might be worse, because the presence of lots of people, even friendly people, is an energy draining thing for us.

      Haha, you must have been a bold pre-teen. I think the only reason we have Mexican labor is because of minimum wage requirements. We have so many lazy white and black people living off the dole, we don’t really need to import a foreign workforce. Maybe instead of minimum wage companies could put these people in company dormitories and establish retirement funds while also paying for their basic subsistence needs. Just an idea. And yes, flipping them off is probably dangerous. They think it’s perfectly OK for a 40 year old man to nail a 12 year old.
