Commodity Fetishism and the Path to Blue Pill Servitude (self.TheRedPill)

At its heart Redpill is about freedom. Redpill is about rejecting society's endorsement of beta behavior so that you can live a happy life and fuck sluts. A happy life, is a life where you travel, fulfill your dreams and experience a variety of things and ultimately die without regret.

Advertising pushes two equally dangerous things down our throats: Marriage and Materialism.
Lets start with materialism.

The problem with materialism is that the more needs corporations trick you into having the more you need to work. The higher the monthly payment, the more you have to work at your unfulfilling job. Marriage adds to this cluster-fuck by forcing you to pay for the irrational needs of a woman.

Marriage is the worst trap a man can fall into. The media promotes marriage as a means of forcing men, the more productive sex to pay for the irrational wants of the less productive sex who make most of the purchases.

The life of the western woman revolves around hording fetish objects, shoes, purses and clothes. So important are these objects that some women are willing to become men's fetish objects to fulfill their needs. Not surprisingly the corporate media has no problem promoting this degradation.

Lets compare western and eastern weddings. In an eastern wedding two families enjoy a home cooked feast celebrating the union of two families. In a western wedding the soon to be wife spends tremendous sums of money in a vain attempt to get attention.

To live a happy life you must avoid the trap of materialism. To avoid materialism you must avoid the western woman.

Consumer debt is a self-imposed yoke.

Debt is supposed to work for you, when it doesn't - you're getting screwed.

As with everything in life, the key is balance. If you simply reject something, you might end up subconsciously desiring it and exploding in a materialistic binge.

I live the most frugal life I can. But every one in a while (maybe once a year or couple of years) I treat myself with something cool, a gadget most of the time.

But here's the thing. I'll buy something useful. Always. And I'll use the thing to its fullest. Unlike some dumb piece of fabric that resembles a curtain and will only be used once in a lifetime (i.e. A wedding dress).

One must carefully examine his needs, as unmet needs drive the desire for wants. People urge to acquire fast and convenient wants when their basic needs are unmet:

  • We want fast food when we need a nutritious meal.
  • We want the newest video game when we need social interaction.
  • We want the latest gadget when we need social authority.
  • We want television shows when we need constructive avocations.

Indulging in conveniences always leads to disorder and dissatisfaction. Habitual fast food consumers physically feel the hollow sensation of emptiness. "Money can't buy happiness," as they say.

Materialism increases with unmet needs, and decreases as needs are satisfied. Complete satisfaction of basic needs eliminates the desire to acquire altogether. A satisfied person no longer wants, he gives.

I was with you up to here. I've never seen an eastern wedding that wasn't just as materialistic and conspicuous-consumption oriented as a western one. Quite the contrary.

True this. I dated an ethnic woman for 2.5 years and hung out with ethnic people during this time. They would have these lavish weddings, costing between 30k and 100k. One was 120k, that marriage was called off, and the family was out 20k for everything they had reserved and then canceled-hotel for the family, reception hall, caterers, etc. My ostentatious gf at the time was all aglow because at one wedding "The groom rode in on a white horse! How romantic!"

Speaking of, I was a total beta back then. Worked a great job but it was manual labor and she wasn't going to be with some blue collar guy, no matter what his salary. I left my job, went back to school, and she ended up cheating on me at a work conference, finally marrying a guy 20 years her senior who got her a job at his work. Did I mention I lost my two level condo because I wasn't able to juggle work/school?

I feel like a dodged a bullet. I may have a thing for ethnic women, but being white they are few and far between, and we'll be honest-late night parties involving lots of carbs, fat, and sugar (usual fare for ethnic parties) can really wreck a girl's body and face. Carbs and fat together is really bad for the body, and lots of sugar creates facial wrinkles.

My parents went to the Justice of the Peace-my mom's choice. I think it cost them $15.

Eastern weddings focus more on the union of families than on the bride.

I agree with that. Here in Vancouver, there's tons of Chinese and Indian weddings. They are effing huge, and it's abundantly clear that they're not for the bridge and groom. The parents control everything.

Perhaps because the participants are pretty replaceable.

Wow. That's amazing. Arranged marriages.

The husband to be disappeared and they were desperate to marry off the daughter.

This. They are an alliance between nations, sort of.
