This event took place at the Royal Institute of British Architects on 24th May 2012.

Event info:

Which side were you on? The Jets or the Sharks? The Capulets or the Montagues? The Greeks or the Trojans? Antony or Caesar? William or Harold? And so the list goes on ... Indeed, maybe the whole of human history is the story of group-making and group-breaking. The passions of loyalty and love for the in-group are matched by the de-humanising indignation and hatred for the out-group.

But what's actually going on in the chemical soup of the brain when Agamemnon gathers his heros-to-be and sets sail after Helen? Will peering into that soup - as neuroscientist David Eagleman is now doing - actually give peace a chance? Maybe utopia can come out of the lab. Will a scientific understanding of love and hate deliver social programmes that undermine the nastiness without sacrificing the good?

Yeah, the Lucifer Effect. The Princeton Experiment. Establishment. Guards vs prisoners. We keep repeating this over and over forever. Nothing new. No integrity.

Need alpha males who take responsibility and understand that actions create consequences. Otherwise, this sort of thing is going to continue happen.

Everyone wants to fit in. By the way this also kind of happens with mgtow I hate to admit.

In what way have you observed this? I've noticed that some men seem to exaggerate their loathing for women, which seems like a strange combination of wanting to fit in and very sour grapes.

@thisisamgtowaccount: it's mostly seen with the younger men who enter mgtow, they treat it like you need to hate women for what they are, when it's already been established it's female nature and it's also tied to generations of women's rights. but yeah, i have seen this where guys fall into an state of always being in the red pill rage stage. that stage isn't supposed to last years or even a year is a bit of a streach, because it's a cycle of healing, realistically you get over it and just go your own way, but if you just dwell within that stage, then your not really going your own way, your stuck like a broken record playing the same tune endlessly. and to a certain degree that happens, but nothing that last for years and years.

@thisisamgtowaccount: i went through the valley of suicide, i went through all the stages of the red pill rage, and they really don't last this long for the most part.

@thisisamgtowaccount: most ppl don't need this video to understand this, but as it would seem, some might need to see it so they can get passed their issues and not linger any longer. https://www.mgtow.tv/watch/tur....d-flinging-monkey-th

@KEEPER: Thanks for sharing that. I think I watched it back when TFM was still on YouTube.

@KEEPER: Yes, I agree. I've been finding that the more I stop judging myself, the more I'm able to accept women as they are. For example, If I unapologetically like tits, for no reason other than tits =good, then why would I judge a woman for unapologetically liking some guy who's displaying something that triggers her instincts? I don't judge a bee for it's stinger. Rather, I let the bee live it's life while I live mine.
