My respknse to “people will go back to being stupid after covid-19 is over”

Remember when you first learned hot things are hot?

How much it hurt?

And how you took caution the next time you suspected something was hot?

People dont understand the mortal and violent danger we are on the brink off. And they may not be alive after the lesson is taught.

So no those left wont go back to being stupid because they were not prepared to get burned to death.

This has been my ted talk,

Thank you.

Pair bonding and peer bonding

This is a thought and therefore it is to be taken solely as opinion on the author at the time of writing. I reserve to be wrong and alter this thought at any point in the future or the past.

It’s been a frequent conjecture in the red pill sphere that a woman’s ability to form a lasting pair bond is diminished with the number of sexual partners.

But that a man’s ability to pair bond is unaffected by his count of sexual partners.

Whether a double standard or a biological difference.

I can not say nor do I much care.

These are conjectures based on the summaries of my observations.

It is my current belief that women practice both pair bonding and peer bonding.

While men either practice peer bonding or pair bonding.

Peer bonding isn’t discussed when men talk about a women’s ability to pair bond.

It is without a doubt a foreign concept to most men.

Most men do not form new lasting friendships past the age of 25. And so the opportunity to create new and lasting peer bonds among men is diminished. So it is simply not thought about.

Women however can and do form lasting peer bonds throughout their life.

It is my current thought that men either practice peer bonding or pair bonding,

Whereas women can practice both at the same time.

The men who focus on peer bonding tend to put

“Bro’s before Hoes”

They tend to be the HVM (high value male), as their concerns for social status and allows them to climb the corporate ladder as well as become the “lifted” Alpha male of their friend circle.

But these men rarely settle down and if they do they often step out.

As their emotional needs (or need of sexual validation) tends to be more than a single partner can provide.

Where as I see the average Delta and Bravo,

Able to settle down but their pair bond takes priority over their social status.

As well as their economic status.

The drive to climb either ladder seems diminished

as long as things are well at home.


Here are my observations of women,

I have seen girls with high partner counts settle down into lasting marriages

the difference

A first I thought it was religion….

But whether Born Again Christian, Mormon, Wiccan, or Agnostic

religions where the package but the truth was

that these provide ready and open peer groups for the women

women who’ve taken up a regular social hobby with other women of “good” moral character

I see the same shift in them as well.

She can be the atheist or satanist in a knitting circle but the reinforcement of values through a stable peer group is the difference.

I think that women fill the first two levels of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs with a strong pair bond but only half of the third tier.

The other half of the third tier of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs as well as the fourth tier is reserved for influences beyond the home.

Whereas men for the most part seek to fill the part two tiers from society and the top two tiers from pair bonding. Men don’t need to peer bond with their coworkers or even hold to religious tenets and practices to satisfy the first two tiers and in most cases the Delta can rest content upon the third tier of Maslow’s hierarchy while filling the need for esteem through self isolating hobbies (video games, model trains, stamp collecting)

If you think I’m wrong about this FIGHT ME!

With Love,


Accept the truth that you chose to be born!

Stoic philosophy is quite clear that there are many things you can not control. Rather than dwell on the circumstances and conditions nature has placed upon you, a Stoic must instead only focus on how those things affect them and how they can control themselves despite circumstances that are not within their control.

Whether born an emperor or the slave, a Stoic is to do their duty as the economic circumstances of their birth are out of their control.

I never liked that line of logic.

On it’s face it locks a person in place.

Now in Dianetic philosophy, if you can call it such. There is a concept that ALL the challenges and circumstances of one’s life are under one’s control. The Dianetics are in complete control.

Meaning that unfortunate events are to teach lessons, the more those lessons repeat the more severe they will be until the Dianetic has learned the applicable lesson.

I despise Dianetics.

As it creates a Narcissistic god complex in it’s adherents.

As a Pragmatist, it serves to take away from these conflicting philosophies what is relevant as it is relevant.

-Story Time-

(Philosophic points after)

I often jest with co-workers and friends who are unhappy with the circumstances of their life, particularly due to their economic status and the conditions of their job.

“Well, you should have thought about that before you decided to be born poor.”

Is my default remark. It illicits a laugh and dismisses the conversation woe of choosing either between pity or comradely. While not invalidating their circumstances or their feelings to it.

I use this remark because with every single co-worker, I talk with. I’ve told them they don’t have to work here. Everyday they are given the choice to improve their tomorrow, through sacrifices today that may pay off in the future.

Whether they are a lift operator in their fifties or a disgruntled loader in their early twenties. Their first complaint about the job (to me) is met with this question.

“Well what would you rather be doing?”

answers range from I’d rather be at home, playing video games, to on a yacht off of Florence.

“Well, what’s stopping you? Go do that.”

Here’s when I see the walls of cognitive dissonance rise in their eyes and demeanor.

They brush it off and go back to work

Or at most

Outright state “I need money.”

and head back to work

But the seed of Truth has been planted

If they don’t want to be at work

They don’t have to

Not only did they make the active choice of choosing this job


Everyday they reaffirm that choice

Actively by going to work


by not looking at other job offers

(our lift operators where paid $15/hr, when the going rate was starting at $22/hr)

by not working on bettering themselves

(Our warehouse is brutal and acts gym rats who still find 5 extra hours to hit the gym

but not one to work on their resume)

by not creating goals

It’s been three years since my first conversation with a disgruntled co-worker

he’d rather be a Twitch broadcaster, playing video games and getting paid. That was his answer three years ago. YET, he hasn’t tried even once.

Since that time his salary has been cut by $5,000 dollars.

The Covid bug has reduced his hours and his wife who went back to work to make up the difference may be out of a job.

So when he complains because our typical March shift is 12 hours and now he is only getting 6.

“Well, you should have thought about that before you decided to be born poor.”

and since January I’ve been on Twitch myself.

What’s more is I come at it with two months of research before I started. Turns out the average length of time for a streamer to “Breakthrough” is 6 years.

Our operator could be half-way but he hasn’t broadcasted once.

And I don’t even want to be on Twitch

But that’s where the people are

and I need them to read and buy my books

So I can continue my mission of improving young men’s literal lives.

-Alright Story Time Over-

As a Pragmatist, it serves to take away from these conflicting philosophies what is relevant as it is relevant.

The Stoics say you can’t control the circumstances of your birth

The Dianetics say you control every aspect of your life (birth included)

What would it mean to think that you chose the circumstance of your birth?

What kind of agency does this provide?

If you were omnipotent before carnation, why would you have chosen the particular circumstance of your birth?

When you could have chosen any other

If you chose the circumstance, you chose the challenges.

I feel rather empowered thinking that I set the difficulty of this life. No, I did not decide all the events; Hurricanes and Tidal Waves, but I can Stoically decide those events impacts on my philosophy and future actions as well as their emotional impact on me.

-Second Story Time-

I didn’t decide that Bitcoin would be so valuable, while I knew of it in 2008. Rather than dwell on the opportunity lost or indulge my own cognitive dissonance (Which tells me that Bitcoin has and will have no inherent value and therefore is an immoral confidence trade. OR. That destiny has decided that you are not ready for wealth and that I must continue to work on myself before wealth will present itself.)

Instead when I am presented with a new technology or opportunity, I will preform a cost benefit analysis and poor separable resources into it if I think it’s ends are worth the investment.

I still think that by and large, stock trading or confidence bets are immoral and the purity of my soul must also be considered when makes such “investments”.

Which is why I bought into High Times during their schedule A push and after further revelations as to the companies overall health. I am excited to pick-up more stock once they hit an exchange. Even though the stock I have already purchased will have fallen though the floor. I own stock in High Times not because they are poised to make a fortune with the legalization of weed and have a super confidence boost but because with high enough equity in the company I can ethically take dividends and keep confidence in the company.

-Story over-

Pragmatically I think that operating under the heuristic, that you chose not just to be born but the circumstances of your birth, gives you control and agency and hope as to how the rest of your life turns out.

You may not have chosen.


You did.

The truth doesn’t matter nearly as much as how you operate as if though one were true.

If you think OH woe is me, I am but a leaf on the wind. You will still die.

If you think I am the master of my destiny. You will still die.

One of these operative modes gives you more choice everyday to continue your current pattern of behavior

and the other

You surrender that choice to the fates

Well that’s about my thoughts on that.

Devin Nash Hardcore

Devin Nash, affectionately known to the twitch community as CEO Andy, is the CMO of N3rdFusion and the host of the Devin Nash Show

the Devin Nash Show is a broadcast that covers, gaming influencer news, as well as Rogan-esq broadcaster interviews that focus on what makes them successful as broadcasters and influencers

Here are some choice selection of those interviews

Business Experts Talk Success Secrets (ft. Gootecks)

Top Twitch Streamer MoonMoon Discusses Streaming Success

And a breakdown of 100 thieves Market genius behind their gaming fortress

(Highly Recommend for the Marketing inclined)

Devin Nash is also a Hardcore player of POE(Path of Exile).

This thorn I’m about to pull is why?

In his words he plays Hardcore because when he loses a character he needs to feel it. The absolute loss of a character because of his own actions. Or to the indifference of the games bosses who have broken mechanics, which he should have avoided.

Every man has his preference and it’s perfectly acceptable that his be irregular.

He refers to the normal mode though as a “Baby Game” in rhetoric jest of course. But it is still a deflection of digging at why he truly plays hardcore, with such an off the cuff dismissal of the default and most popular game mode. What bothers me about this is that this is not an argument to sway others to his form of perceived superior play but rather to himself securely coddled in his preference.


Why is that important that he raises rhetoric argument?

Because rhetoric is not application of persuasion, not the method by which truth is discovered.

Rhetoric is primary used as a weapon, either when there is a lack of knowledge on a subject or where the truth is counter to the conclusion you wish an audience to draw.

So here’s why IMHO

Devin Nash plays Hardcore?

He is practicing attachment, control, investment and failure.

Games fill whatever desire your heart longs for a time but without ever fulfilling that desire forever.

Are you feeling lonely?

Join a cooperative experience

Are you feeling like murdering your boss?

Hop on an Xbox shooter, talk smack and exercise dominance over 12 yr old boys until dawn instead

Are you feeling unchallenged?

We have strategy games for that.

Are you feeling the need for a girl but don’t want to take a shower?

Let me introduce you to the world of dating sims.

Hardcore modes fill a very special need

For some it’s the sheer challenge and proof of mastery

For others it’s the most uncontested leader-board

For Devin Nash

it’s grief and frustration

He doesn’t play Hardcore for fun

No, indeed too many hours have been throw into POE

to call it fun or catharsis

Why would anyone inflict themselves with such pain and loss though?

Understand that for every character death he experiences,

That character is permanently dead and can no longer be played.

Which means all the hours, days, weeks of investment that went into

crafting that character are GONE FOREVER.

Even if that Character does not die they will be forever in memoriam after the seasons end, never to be played again as the call of a new season begs the creation of a new avatar.

Each ending condition is the same the investment squandered, as games like life have an end when all will be forgotten.

POE Hardcore fills Devin Nash’s need for attachment by providing a, relatively, consequence free zone for him to experience attachments ultimate conclusion death and grief

This the motive that he keeps from himself

Because Detachment and the practice thereof dominates his conscience and everyday life. Romanticly, Profressionally, and Religously

Why then must I attack his last vestige of Attachment by revealing it’s nature?

It is the truth as I see it.

It’s not a bad thing, It’s just a hidden thing

and all things must be brought under the light.

With Love,



This thorn has been in my head for a long time.

I know that TWITTER is for the famous

but I still use it

(and lie to myself saying that I am marketing my works)

I knew that Reddit AMA’s are for those with fame

but I tried it anyway.

I know still that Streaming on and posting on youtube

is not expanding my base

but I’m there anyways

All of these things will be of service to fans

once I have them

here’s what you came here for though

Step 1: Know your demographic

for me my ideal demographic is young men ages 18-25

Step 2: Know where they are and what content they consume

for my demo

they check best of Reddit 5 times a day via phone,

they are not on twitter in significance,

they have 1-3 forums they are active or lurkers in

(but this are hyper specific and deluded to be of marketing value)

They are on either YouTube or twitch 4 hrs a day

while gaming passively letting the algorithm feed them auto-play content

Step 3: Understand the requirements of the platform

While YouTube’s algorithm is a secret.

It’s a mystery box that millions of people feed hundreds of millions of hours of video into

but we know what gets weight down

and what gets lifted up


recommendations are for evergreen content from creators

with a consistent +4 year back catalog

Live streamers who engage on the platform

(comment-bots , community posts, etc)

are boosted

(my suspicion is that is based on how many times individuals check out the commenters channel page.)

The AI bot ties auto-play together based on the video description

(tags are a distraction)

(this creates a vicious reaction cycle funnel)

It’s why drama is so effective on YouTube

Step 4: lay the foundation for success to keep fans before you have them

Unless you want to be a one-hit wonder

or a that viral tweet

(which may become a Lizzo song)

you need to have a backlog of content

or become a flash in the pan

Step 5: Decide the color of your hat

Black hats:

maybe: use bots to comb your social site and get engagement

(suspect 1, suspect 2)

Buy: sub counts and watch time pushes

Grey Hats:

Kick the Hornets nests

Use the drama feed loop to spread your content and build a base

White Hats:

Get lucky

(this video was featured on the from page on YouTube and rocketed the channel from 50k to 300k subs in one month.

And has almost 1 million views)

Green Hats:

Do what Tai lopez did

“I’m here in my garage!”

There you have it!

I have other posts about the other platforms and best tips

Give me a comment and I’ll point you there.

Like and share this

UBI may Break the corporate shield

A universal basic income will have many positive benefits for many people.

But for some their will be negative consequences.

Those that exploit labor will have a harder time as now their labor force does not have to endure abusive conditions to ensure they have a basic quality of life ( food, water, shelter).

Those that exploit tenants will have a harder time raising rents. Since a tenants basic needs are no longer tied to a place of physical employment, people will be more mobile and able to relocate their living situation with relative ease into a non-exploitative tenant-landlord relationship.

Economists say “the only minimum wage should be ZERO”

This is only possible in a world where the value of labor is freely decided by the laborer and those contracting the labor. Since a labor only has tier 2 and above of the Maslow’s hierarchy of needs to attend to they are not on a level playing field with those that can afford to contract their services but they are not at a disadvantage being motivated to put up with wages disproportionate with the effort/skill/ or scarcity of the labor being provided.


The corporate shield refers to the legal liability a company can be subject to if that company is found or convicted of unethical, unlawful or otherwise negative impacts that company has committed in bad faith or actual malice.

It means that those individuals who work for the company are protected from legal seizure of assets.

Those who hold stock and vote on a company’s policies and elect board of directors, their personal non-corporate assets are protected as well.

The corporate shield allows individuals to take risks with their excess capital and not be held liable for the wrong-doing of a corporate entity. THIS IS A GOOD THING.

BUT it’s too much of a good thing.

When the corporate shield is used in bad faith to protect individuals and groups like the Sackler family from suffering any loss of property for (allegedly) withholding knowledge as to the addictive nature of Oxycontin, all while aggressively using incentive programs for doctors to prescribe Oxycontin over other less addictive medications.

In 2008 the “banks” were bailed out with government funds but there was certainly enough money on the other side of the corporate shield to cover the costs of corporate bankruptcy/reconstruction.

UBI provides the benefits of the corporate shield

by mitigating the maximum amount of risk an individual is exposed to. Every dollar over the essential cost of living (food, water, shelter) is excess and liable.

Those are my thoughts on that.

Facebook is for MEMES. Fight me.

Ah young paddawon. Don’t you know Facebook is for MEMES.

Facebook facts.
FB shares each post with 5-7 of your friends who are likely to engage or have a long scroll wait (look at it)

It creates an echo chamber really quick no matter how much you post.

If you want to change people’s mind try creating a meme the Al Gore rhythm would think they would either like or hate. Then engage with them in the comments, else you are only preaching to the choir.

Also it should never be your goal to change an individual mind. Cognitive dissonance does not allow for this

Instead try to affect the audience. Those that neither engage or comment but come here for the drama.

It’s a slow battle but we will win #humanityfirst
