  1. Landry, if you’re ever interested in getting an insight into modern university life, particularly from the experience of reactionary, white, straight male, let me know.

    I can speak to much of what you’re addressing in this podcast. Societal interaction and interaction in general is breaking down between our age group and I genuinely believe that social alienation has hit destructive levels.

      Saarlander, I’m older and in grad school now at a thoroughly pozzed university, and it’s demoralizing. I can only imagine what it’s like for 20-somethings their first time around. I’ll bet you are somewhat of a Mr. Gnobody on campus.

    2. An idea: Write an article about it and send it to Social Matter.

  2. Good episode. This is a good example of something where the subject itself (how friend/dating apps undermine natural, organic relationship formation) is relevant in itself, and it also leads to a kind of meta-alienation.

    People swiping left or right on trashy, over-curated Tinder profiles is definitely grotesque on its face (in the big Vanity Fair article on Tinder, they even interview a bunch of people who admit they loathe it but keep using it anyway), but it’s also a huge blackpill to be the guy who thinks this stuff is degenerate, yet see it remain wildly popular anyway. Part of the value of your podcast is serving as a reminder that no, it’s society that’s insane, and anyone who is totally comfortable swimming in this polluted water is not quite right in the head.

    As you’ve pointed out in the past, the real tragedies of a decadent society are that 1) a lot of people who would’ve been perfectly civilized if they’d lived in, say, Jane Austen’s England, get sucked into the vortex and screw themselves over with bad behavior, and 2) anyone who is enough of a contrarian to reject the prevailing social mores endures the constant stress of being out of step with a large part of their society.

    Anyway, props for drawing attention to the “organic vs transactional” distinction of relationships. It’s hard to overstate how big a deal this has become. I know several people who were severely blackpilled because they left a company where they had a lot of friends, and then found that suddenly none of their old co-workers ever wanted to talk to them again. It’s a real eye-opener to see that happen.

    This was one of the best podcasts of late. I think the one buzzword Ryan forgot to mention that I constantly hear is “networking”. It’s all about getting someone to like you so you get that promotion or tickets in the suite for the sportsball game. That’s when you become somebody. I LOLed when he mentioned management holding meetings to figure out how to motivate employees. Even normies understand that your company doesn’t give a shit about you, and these shallow attempts at team-building (there’s another gem) are fooling (g)no one.

    1. It seems that normie guys know the score, but that normie women eat that stuff up. They love leaning in, team-building, and other horseshit like that.

      That’s one of the reasons that corporations love women. You can give them a little pat on the head and some vacuous words of praise, and they’ll do anything you ask.

        Yet another reason why they shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

      2. I sort of loathe team-building exercises, especially when it comes to the business side.

  4. This same week I happened to watch a scene that may be destined to stop taking place with these ongoing changes.

    An industrial plant on the outskirts of a big city. At lunch time, there’s only one option of restaurant. All of the workers flock onto it, a big mass of people who work on assembly lines, but also the sorts of paper-pushers who dress up a bit more, in their 20s or 30s. It works as a small village, except for the fact that there’s not enough time to grab lanch at home and instead you end up having nothing to do other than go back to work. So you hang out with your group, but eventually you cross the border.

    A low skilled bro who works out and has his shit together may land one of the girls who works in the office and that may lead to arranging some other couples. That’s more “diversity” than most urbanites really face; liberal-bullshit-signaling notwithstanding.

    As these apps rid you off most of the “interacting chores”, you as an urbanite get to live in an ant farm full of people from all walks of life, but each of them driving in his own lane. And you can celebrate your falafel, kebab or ceviche vendor while despising the bigoted countryside.
