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.
