Some Highlights:

It feels like this grey machine. A conveyor belt. Relationships feel flimsy. Everybody works. Watches TV. Works more. The amount of hostility towards men is repulsive, as it plays out in the workplace and in media. But the underground of MGTOW and Red Pill is filled with a tremendous amount of hostility as well. I just really can't believe how unhappy and depressed most people in the west are. It's like there is this War on Love, destroying relationships between lovers, friends, and communities. There's not much neighborhood or local cohesion. I feel everybody keeps busy busy busy all the time, working buying and watching, working buying and watching, to avoid admitting how bleak and punishing the average life is here. I don't want to support it. I don't want to fit in and be part of it.


The place runs well. The trains are on time, as they say, but psychologically, I feel the West is a very hostile and weird place these days. Especially when it comes to men / women relationships. I am shocked at the deterioration in relationships that I have seen, in just the past ten years. It's just so aggressively mercenary. The romance has been drained from the punch. There's very little charm in the process. I found dating pretty pointless, but still fun and sweet enough in Thailand. Even it if leads nowhere beyond walking around a mall and having some sex, it was lighter and more pleasant. In America, dating is this grim operation to perform: shit tests, hoops, Social Market Value, and the flat-out rude bossiness that has become the modern American woman. Joyless. Probably that's what this entire post comes down to... that one word: Joyless. America is not a life. It's a job. The job is work. And work sucks.

I too have noticed the high hostility against men in America from women. It a common social theme.
This got me thinking

Did you know that it was common for Thais to change there names until the 20th century
Every person I have known who was into routinely changing there name was because they burned bridges via various scams. This has not been allowed in western culture for a long time.

Common Thai girl scams, in fact scams are very common in general in Thailand

Women will naturally lie and scam if left to there natural vices. In the west this is not permitted as much as say in Thailand. This may be one of the many pressures that make women in the west more hostile.
Scamming and hypocrisy are similar. The land of smiles could also be the land of hypocrites.
