    #27 i think that we all fear uncertainity to a certain extent. It gets aggregated in our collective fears and we try quash all the influencers of free thinking to bring uniformity and reduce uncertainity.

    Somehow for those who manage to think and move beyond this, somehow the certainity of society for a predictable adversary. It is few unpredictable individuals within this adverse system that we need to worry about and such individuals flock to money and power centres.

    We think about complete systems while the corrupt think about loopholes , it is focused and the possibilities of results is greater.

    I was wondering how a dent could serve as a loophole and break the chain of adversity, what is that one thing beyond the financial or political influence, can there be systems which invite participation and before people know it, the problems are redundant.

    I have seen people in the most hopeless and helpless of circumstances come out of it. Poor countries have more of these examples.

    I get a conjoint doze of the pain and the cure. But i am unable to present them together in a writing piece. They get separated to avoid confusion.

    #2 Brian, you scream for love louder than anyone else I can think of. It's right there, between the lines. Your obsession with women, romance, marriage, and all the love you clearly feel is denied to you comes out as a primal scream with every post you write on the subject. If you seriously didn't care about finding love you wouldn't write so many obsessive posts telling everyone how stupid they are to seek it. You can't have it; and your dog-in-the-manger message is that no one else should have it either. You're not fooling anyone; the comments I see on your other posts show that *everyone* knows you are screaming and dying for love. Not sex....love. I customarily write off men like you as losers who can't get laid, but not you, Brian. Your problem is you can't find love, and the problem lies entirely within you.

    It doesn't have to be this way. You're a miserable, angry, negative man and don't even waste your finger time telling me how you're "happy" you are with your life. You are not; you spew and dump on others the way Donald Trump does, which leads me to wonder how someone who can be as rich, accomplished (in some ways), powerful, and with a beautiful wife and pretty good kids as he can be such a miserable, unhappy human being. And the answer is he is as driven to spew his misery on everyone else as you are. He won't fix his emotional problems as you won't. Just remember, Brian...it's a CHOICE. You have made a CHOICE to be this miserable, and the only sucker you can likely persuade that you're happy with your life is....YOU.

    Right from the Horse's Mouth
    Look Left - Look Right - Look in the Mirror: At least one of you is being duped, strung along, bilked, hoodwinked, bamboozled or cucked

    A 2014 Daily Mail survey of 1000 married British women - self reported that 50% of them had a back up plan man. The study found that one in four women with a back-up plan have feelings just as strong for Plan B as they do toward their other half. And 12% admitted their feelings were stronger for the other guy. What’s worse is seven in 10 women confessed they are currently in contact with him.

    And who is the chump likely to be? Likely candidates are old friends who may have been stifling romantic feelings for your woman, ex-boyfriends, ex-husbands, colleagues, and even someone she’s met at the gym. The survey found that the other man is probably someone your significant other has known for years who is "ready and waiting" due to "unfinished business."

    Remember when she pulls the plug - and 70%+ of Divorces are initiated by women - you will loose at least 1/2 your property, assets, while retirement, and future wages are on the table too - don't forget child support & lifestyle maintenance hits too - hell, you might even have to pay her legal fees to DIVORCE you.

    Men - Walk away - you hath been warned.
    PS - these are the women that Self Reported.... nothing says more of them weren't hiding lies ~ Welcome to MGTOW We will leave a Light on for you

    Straight from the Horses Mouth. Women want and expect -

    "A man who will bring you coffee in bed every morning, run to the store during rush hour to buy you your favorite Orville Redenbacher popcorn because you are in need of your favorite snack after what feels like a hella long day, bend over and buckle your ski boots, carry your skis and want to take selfies with you all day long even after being together for almost eight years. A man who will love and adore you and take your daughter to the airport and see her off to Australia for five months because he really, truly loves her – not because he has to or needs to. A man with whom you can show up and be the whole of you without being afraid he will leave. Or hurt you. Or break your heart."

    um - No. Get your own damn pop corn - Remember, you need a man like a fish needs a bicycle. We are all done bounding through pedantic hoops just to be your Fetch-boy or Instagram Selfie Accessory.
