What Are Young Non-Working Men Doing?

Postby gnosis » Wed Jul 27, 2016 6:09 pm

The Atlantic did an article on unemployed young men.

Of course the author blames young men for the failure of their society to help provide them with meaningful work.

From the article:

"If good, steady, well-paying work is the key to any person’s economic satisfaction, there are several reasons to be nervous about the upcoming generation. Since 2000, the labor-force participation rate of young men without a college degree has declined more than any other age-and-gender group...Some of this drop is attributable to rising college attendance. But not all of it. Nine percent of Americans between 20 and 24 are neither in school, work, or training."

Maybe that 9% are either insanely rich and don't have to work, or they are so depressed they can't get out of bed in the morning.
Look for women who automatically want to please you because it pleases them. Any woman who seeks to please her man is a treasure. Even better if you don't have to ask but rather suggest.

They're probably doing what I did; putting on hundreds of miles on their cars looking for work - and having their time wasted and lied to by idiots who have no business being a manager.

Well said.

I am sure that the percentage of men not in the labor force is much higher than the gov and press lets on. I posted a link to this article because I am surprised the press is even admitting there is a problem.

They are sedating themselves with porn, video games, junk food, TV, junk media and entertainment, etc.

Anyone blaming men for this insanity deserves to be shot. What man would choose such a "life" if he had reasonable options?

This is exactly what I think.

It is the culture's responsibility to induct young men into the adult world. This has been the responsibility of every successful culture in history. Unfortunately, you and I are not members of a successful culture. Our loser culture is not capable of offering us anything decent.

Young men are civilization's future. I know brilliant guys who are unemployed or under-employed. Rocket scientist material. And they are treated like shit. This doesn't bode well for the future.

But honestly, what do I care about the future? Your children are the future. If you don't have children, then you shouldn't give a f**k. Let the old men and women worry about the future. It's not my problem.

Commence a war on boys and masculinity.
Complain why boys and men are failing.

Everything is becoming and has become so efficient, we do not need our #'s growing. The European #'s have been going down to make this work long term. It is the other groups who still breed like roaches is why we are headed for disaster and have actually arrived there.

Time for a nice war to thin the herd..................... :D

I wonder if they really can't understand the connection between giving women "free" shit (like welfare, schooling, and jobs) and men failing...or if they really do understand it and just won't admit it.

Who is they? Men are disunited, so women walk all over us. We are NOT going back to the patriarchy or whatever you want to call the 1950's. The only way is forwards. Get used to it. The constituency for welfare, child support, alimony, tolerance for false rape accusations, and other unjust aspects of the current system is limited, but if you male conservatives want to focus on turning back the clock, women will win every time. True equality and true fairness is the only option that will fly politically.

They are the establishment. The talking heads. The campus and workplace manginas and feminists. All of those fuckers.

...you are right about this. We won't be turning back the clock while Western civilization still stands. We're on a time limit. Once it all finally falls apart...that is when we go back.

And if there would be another great civilization that would rise and become decadent, I would prefer the extinction of the species.

Here's another article discussing the same issue (they interviewed the same researcher) : http://www.moneytalksnews.com/number-jobless-young-men-surges-heres-what-theyre/

This is funny: “Happiness surveys actually indicate that they quite content compared to their peers, making it hard to argue that some sort of constraint, like they are miserable because they can’t find a job, is causing them to play video games,” says Hurst

I think the video game players have the right idea. :)
