The Sam Hyde thread

I tried watching a few of his videos but it was kind of painful to sit through. He comes off as a bit of bitter, black pilled, nihilist.

Coincidentally, I was just talking about him the other day with a coworker who'd vaguely heard about him/MDE/knew there was some kind of minor drama. I didn't care for MDE, actually, but I thought his older stuff in the mirror at his mom's house was kinda funny.

I don't keep up with his long form stuff, so I'm not promoting his content at large which I don't know anything about, but the little clips you see on youtube are, honestly, good, simple advice for young men and delivered in a way that's approachable, especially for them (despite being my age, he know how to speak the language of excessively online zoomers, even when he's telling them to stop being online excessively).

I don't agree with every word he says of course, but watching a few videos from this playlist, I wish I could get it in front of every young man in the industrialized world:

inb4:
  • He's sophomoric - that's the point. It may not be to your tastes, it's not to mine exactly either and I prefer when he's just talking "normally", but this kind of channy/twittery anti-comedy is popular.
  • It's basic, obvious advice - it should be obvious, but nothing is obvious anymore. Kids are being intentionally retarded in their intellectual, emotional, and social development. "Don't get a gorillion dollars in debt for an imaginary degree given to you by twisted, frustrated perverts", "don't spend all day inside and end up a pale porn-addled freak with no social skills" - these should be obvious but all the messaging towards kids for decades has been the exact opposite of this, so take nothing for granted. A funny fellow sperg who "made it" can be very influential to a young man.
He's the good-hearted stoner big brother who'll give you the practical advice and tough love you need that tons of young men who didn't really have a father could use.

I don't know why but I find this guy (at times) to be so incredibly funny. I've stopped trying to figure out what exactly is funny about him, but a lot of his work cracks me up. He also has some fairly lame stuff, but when he's on, it definitely gets many a chuckle out of me.

He's also quiet prescient at times, and as 911 pointed out, that video he made about female cops was eerily predictive.
 

This is my personal favorite.

You have to be mildly offensive to be funny which most people on the left are not. I think it's within my lifetime we'll see comedy go underground.

I find Sam to be very insightful. What I like most about MDE is that its original, which is uncommon today. That his show was red pilled and he made it to Adult Swim is encouraging, even if it was ultimately cancelled (for being red pilled). However insignificant it may seem it speaks to the red pill phenomenon and how its spreading. His skit "Jews Rock" was awesome.

Sam is a front line soldier in the culture war and he takes his opponents to task. He's funny and ridiculous and that's a great way to get through to people. We only need to keep red pilling and Sam is definitely one of our more prolific agents. This is true for Joe Rogan, but unlike Rogan, Sam is further down the rabbit hole. Rogan is a good stage 1 red piller but he's not at Sam's level.
 
I was always a bigger Charls Carroll fan, he has a much more experimental "meta-modern" style that pushes the genre with stuff you haven't seen before. Lately he's gone super white-pill and talks about Christianity often as the solution. Charls had a really good interview series with Doug Tennapel for a while in 2020, then mysteriously the entire like 16 episode series was taken off YouTube



 
There's a really good Hyde video on youtube where he talks with Kantbot in person. They talk alot about the modern condition and plight of millenials. And also about trolling.

Ironically Sam gives some really good career advise despite being an art school kid. Talks about the need to learn STEM or take up a trade and do an apprenticeship.

Taking up a trade sounds like a great idea. STEM however, seems like largely a Big Tech-lobbied ruse designed to open up policies for white-collar immigration, justify off-shoring jobs like IT and programming, and flood the tech industry with job applicants to drive wages down. I went to undergrad and grad school for STEM majors, I wouldn't recommend it if your goal is to amass wealth (by all means get into it if you enjoy doing it though). You'd be likely to make much more money learning a blue-collar trade and trying to eventually start a business, and that's not even factoring in the debt + time-lost from the STEM college experience.

Off topic but can confirm I am in a white collar job, in a stem business, with an arts degree managing a blue collar work force. I would have been better at my job now if I cam from a blue collar background and probably better of financially.

Back on topic. Sam Hyde is not the sort of guy I would want my daughter to date. Funny interesting guy who is speaking truth to power but not some one to hold up as a role model.
