Doug Casey Talks Virtual Girlfriends, Soy Boys, Moore's Law, and Loss of Masculinity
Doug Casey is a well-known investor and self-made millionaire, who often discusses emerging trends for trade ideas. In this article, he sounds like Roosh as he laments the the loss of Western culture and the toppling of traditional gender norms. He also mentions how Moore's Law, the observation made in 1965 by Gordon Moore that computer power would double about every two years, now seems to apply to changes in gender norms. It is worth reading the entire article, but here is the excerpt that might be most interesting to this forum's readers.

Quote:Justin: Besides better technology, what other factors will bring virtual girlfriends into the mainstream? It seems like this trend needs to overcome some societal taboos first.

Doug: Yes, but those taboos are diminishing. You’ve got to realize that the concept, and reality, of the “soy boy” is also spreading around the world. The idea is that if you eat a lot of soy it increases the estrogens in your body. Men tend to become more feminine.

Apparently, this is now especially prevalent in Japan. It’s also happening in China. A lot of Chinese males are becoming what they call “herbivores,” or “grass eaters.”

Justin: This is a problem in the Western world, too.

Doug: Yes, it’s part of a worldwide trend against masculinity.

Here in the United States, we have a meme about “toxic masculinity.” This is the idea that males are dangerous and undesirable, especially white males.

This meme is spreading. You can see it in many areas. For example, most graduates from medical and law school these days are women, not men. Women are also running major nation states and major corporations.

I have no problem with that philosophically—people should be viewed as individuals, not primarily as members of a sex, race, religion, or whatever. But, that said, women are becoming more masculinized, and men are becoming more feminine.

The trend is likely to accelerate because it’s widely promoted as a good thing. We can discuss the moral implications of feminine men and masculine women, who apparently now come in something like 54 different genders. Personally, I think it’s out of control, and destructive. But it’s being abetted by technology, advancing at the rate of Moore’s Law. The trend will likely continue, simply because trends in motion tend to accelerate until they reach a climax, catharsis, or crisis. We’re heading for a big one, in lots of ways.

Justin: So, this trend against masculinity could encourage more males to opt for virtual girlfriends instead of the real thing?

Doug: Yes. The two ideas are connected. The world is morphing into something almost unrecognizable from the past.

If you’re attracted to somebody these days, you basically need them to sign a paper before you dare kiss, or even touch them. I’m not kidding. This is policy in many universities and corporations. A lot of normal, healthy males—in the US and Europe, not just Japan—view dating as more trouble than it’s worth. The risks outweigh the rewards. The #MeToo movement and its clones are having a subtle effect on the average guy. And women are becoming afraid men are just Harvey Weinstein in waiting.

This is happening because political correctness has permeated society. It’s reached the point where it’s destroying Western Civilization. It’s turning men into little soy boys, and women into harridans.

One consequence is that people from the Mohammedan world and the third world increasingly see Americans and Europeans as weak and contemptible, even pitiable.

It’s almost a Nietzschean situation in which that which is about to fall deserves to be pushed.

So, it seems like technology, which has been our friend throughout history, is turning against us in unexpected ways.

Doug Casey is so red pill he tosses the pill aside for being too blue.

This is a great speech:

So, he has bought into the singularity, has he?

Of course I don't believe in the singularity. However the technology advances he discusses, everything from VR to bio-engineering, are real. If he takes care of himself well enough, he might even make it to the longevity escape velocity.

These gender-swapping role reversals have gotten out of hand. A British woman arrived at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport hoping to to catch a flight to Singapore. When she went through immigration, officers noticed that her month-long visa had expired on February 18th.

Having been in the country illegally for 160 days, she had to cough up $4,000, because overstaying your visa in Indonesia costs $25 per day. She overstayed by 160 days. When an immigration official gave her the bad news, she bitch slapped him. She is now being held in Bali until she pays a $4000 fine for overstaying her visa.
