Please post social science related interesting articles, things you are learning at school, or other social science discussion here!
The other day, on The Daily Shoah, Mike Enoch was talking about "Schelling Points" which he said are really relevant for dissident political movements. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focal_point_(game_theory)
Basically a Schelling point is how people with similar goals meet when communication between them is blocked.
Mike was using this idea to talk about how people in the AltRight meet each other, say at local GOP meetings or what have you.
I would like to hang out in this section. I'll be back.
My background is in social work and public service.
Unfortunately and fortunately.
Thanks @The Morrígan#2239
@The Morrígan one thing I've been thinking about lately is how much people seek validation of their thoughts to the point that they will condition themselves to give responses or make statements that they know will result in social validation from their peers.
Is that an interesting topic?
Yes. I do believe this issue you speak of mostly consists, not solely, within a particular age group. What age range would do find this self-serving validation in? @ThisIsChris
Their is a really specific term to that unconscious conformity, but I can't for the life of me remember it.
I do believe a particular level of confirmation is needed. It is healthy. I suppose we need more background on the social setting that you have experienced. Age group and platform.
BA in Sociology (minor in Communication) and Master’s in City and Regional Planning (grad minor Rural Sociology). Feel free to contact me if you need help in these areas! 😊
Welcome aboard and thanks
@Deleted User I'm not sure that I understand the question entirely. May you explain a bit? I'm assuming that being red-pilled is ideal? Are you specifically asking me how do I, specifically, NOT get red pilled or how do people refrain from being red pilled in their vocation ?
@Deleted User Oh! I'm looking at the conversations prior which were a few months ago. It was my career in social work that I was red-pilled about IQ among the races and many other topics. Fortunately, I was raised with some red pilled truth, but it was my first 3 years in social work and working within the court system that brought on my experience with race realism.
@The Morrígan yes your second comment got my point. I would imagine the people you come into contact with has a red pilling effect. I never go to my county building but I went there recently for a septic permit and was stunned by the cast of characters there. I guess it’s the place to go to get money from the government. Weird to know that world even exists and it must be your daily reality. What are your collègues’ sentiments or are you an outlier?
Well, I've worked in a few fields. I'll speak on working for Child Protective Services . . .
At my county office white caseworkers were pushed away and run down by a massive caseload that was systematically placed on them. I've noticed there are three ways that whites in this field can go. They either become red pilled and seek out other whites to survive the system, or they are liberal idiots who agree with the current system, or they become so beaten down systematically that they just push paper and become numb. @Deleted User
The 2 ways, non-liberal whites excluded, are hard. Being red pilled comes with a responsibility and a code of conduct when working in the system. You have to walk a thin line in order to survive.
It becomes similar to prison. Everyone figures out what side they are on--- quick.
Anyone have a scientific answer on these 2 broad questions regarding male/female relationships 80-100 years ago? The questions being: "Did men have the ability to put a women in an institution at will?" "Were women being beaten on a regular basis?" Is there a way that I could respond using scientific studies in regards to this?
What’s up everyone? I am new to the server.
I’ve been reading a biography on Charles Lindbergh. It’s excellent. Here is an excerpt from the book, highlighting the political activity of his father during WWI
*sigh* it depresses me to realize how much good blood of our people we lost in those wars. Such a dysgenic process, war.
@Undercover Academic - IL I feel like being pro-America is also maligned today. You have to be self hating concerning your race if you are white and despise America cause it’s “evil”
Being “pro America” is so ambiguous because Americans in large can’t even identify what American is.
To some, being American is being a descendent of those who built the skyscrapers, who tilled the land, who fought in the nations wars, who built the towns and cities etc.
To others, being American is meaningless.
We are all Americans, regardless of where you are from, what religion you are, what culture you participate in, what you believe politically, what language you speak or what your ethnicity is.
Which is to say, nothing defines America
I think you are right, and that is exactly why we are all here. Our ethnicity largely defines us, or heritage and lineage is now more meaningful to me than my country
One of the earliest red pills I had was when I was in college, in a small history class, and I made a reference to both of my grandfathers fighting in WW2 and these two brown faces looked at me in confusion.
I paused and asked them, “None of your grandparents were in WW2.” And they simply shook their head.
It’s true they don’t have a shared heritage with us
Both of my grandfathers were in WW2 and for whatever reason I always feel a sense of kinship with anyone who tells me their grandfathers were WW2 vets as well
It’s almost like we share a common bond and history with one another or something
@Undercover Academic - IL your story of one of your earliest redpills is word for word what happened to me too when I entered college
College pushed me far to the right.
So many rural whites don’t get awakened because they are so insulated
That's pretty funny since most people probably just accept all the brainwashing and veer to the left
Glad you made it haha!
Growing up, I have always considered myself a contrarian and independent
A “rugged individualist” if you will.
Even in a small rural town I was more liberal in high school, probably because it was against the grain
