#1 Trending Video on YouTube today is titled "Alpha Males Do Not Exist"

Not going to link that garbage but the #1 trending video on YouTube today is this video of a John Oliver look alike skinny fat hipster glasses wearing loser preaching to us about why there is no such thing as an alpha male.

As someone who works in the media myself I can attest first hand that the media and establishment structures doing all they can to attack real men is not by accident. It is by design. The goal is to weaken men and make them effeminate losers who are easy to walk over. Strong, masculine men are the #1 enemy to the global establishment.

Here is the deal. Most men will see this video, and articles like "Why women prefer dad bods" and "Real men date single moms" and other filth aimed at weakening strong men and actually believe its the case. These videos, while pathetic, are actually a good thing as most men will run with them as fact and do just that. They will stop lifting and get that dad bod. They will stop trying to act masculine and be threatened by their masculinity. They will try to rope in that catch of a single mom. Why, because the media told them to. Media = brainwashing. It's a good thing because it thins the herd. It makes getting into that Top 20% or Top 10% or Top 5% of men that much easier. To the point where simply lifting, eating right, staying in shape, dressing well, having good posture and not having an awkward demeanor will put you into the Top 20% by default.

These videos are good for the individual male who is looking to climb the ladder in the male hierarchy. Unfortunately its bad for men and society as a whole. The weaker men get, the easier it will be for oppressive establishment operatives to trample our rights and walk all over us with more tyranny and freedom/liberty stripping actions.

To be fair, the bit on David Mech is true. Originally he invented the idea of wolves following a hierarchy with an alpha wolf on top. But subsequent research found that the hierarchy is based on familial relations (if 'familial relations' is appropriately used in a wolf context) rather than dominance.

But this is not to say that the idea of alpha and dominance did not exist before David Mech. This idea predates Mech's research on wolves by millennia. The logical fallacy made here is that the idea of a dominant alpha human male was born out of Mech's research, which is completely fucking stupid.

Yeah....I had to watch it too.

Massive straw man. Alpha/Beta doesn't depend on Mech's work.

Also, according to Frans de Wall (sp?), alpha chimps don't always win....because if they are too dictatorial, they get taken down by the #2 & #3 chimps cooperating.

Which, again, hardly matters.

So many layers of subtly our detractors do not get. Jocko Willinck, a dude so Alpha he has Jock in his name, teaches to lead "up and down the command chain". Etc. On & on.

57 upvotesgrandaddychimp2 years ago

Yep, "alpha" is just a word that describes exhibition of genetics and behaviors that women find sexually attractive and get their dopamine flowing. "Beta" is exhibition of genetics and behaviors that women find preferable for long term relationships and are good for bonding/oxytocin, like being a provider of resources/emotional validation/attention, etc.

Even TRP sidebar introduction says that no man should strive to be 100% alpha, but a healthy mixture of alpha and beta.

8 upvotes2comment2 years ago

David Mech's book popularized it, but didn't invent it.


10 upvotesmax_peenor2 years ago

It was shit science all around and he was actually wrong the second time too. Ultimately, the deal was not that wolves have pack alphas or not, but the circumstances that cause it. Sometimes they do. Sometimes they do not. Stress situations cause pack changes, which is pretty much the same for ALL pack animals. Watching a single pack in a single place and drawing any conclusions was retarded.

4 upvotesrathyAro2 years ago

What about the point that our close relatives don't follow the alpha/beta structure either?

12 upvotes • [deleted] • 2 years ago

The bonobos? I am not well versed on the topic of bonobos to be taken seriously so take my comment with a grain of salt, it's pure conjecture.

But it's yet another bad argument. The fact that bonobos are matriarchal does not mean they do not follow the alpha / beta structure. At the core, the idea about the alpha and beta are that there are individuals (alphas) who have certain traits that make them more successful sexually and socially than others (betas). Any person who would disagree with this idea is a complete fucking moron in my opinion. You can have a matriarchal society with alpha and beta females. The only thing that changes between a matriarchy and patriarchy is who has the power and who is more dominant.

Frankly, the stereotype the video attacked is one of a pompous douchebag that tries way too hard, not an alpha. I can get behind that cause, somewhat. It's quite easy to spot losers that take alpha traits and embody them to ridiculous extremes. They become aggressive rather than assertive, cocky rather than confident, trying way too hard to get girls and so on.

I idea that family relations, not pure shows off strength, determine your position in society (human or wolf) can be traveling back to Plato's Republic. But a delving into that black hole will land you in the world of the Neo-Reactionaries (nrx for short) and the Dark Englightenment stuff.

It's interesting, but only if you can make a lot of defeatest murmuring about how better it will be after the next near extinction level event.

1 upvotes • [deleted] • 2 years ago

That is because they were fucking decimated by patriarchal tribes. Their pathetic genes erased from the collective.

3 upvotesCoronaTRP2 years ago

Matriarchial genes are not pathetic, they are just not right for our environment. Just look at chimps.

I think this has to do with availability of resources: If resources are scarce, it becomes more important to have strong competition between the males and in a patriarchy, the stakes are higher.

But if resources are plentiful, a female doesn't need a strong male who can defend resources and be territorial, because she gets to eat anyway.

1 upvotes • [deleted] • 2 years ago

Nature provides very few ecosystems where resources are plentiful and where competition is unnecessary.

What about males competing to spread their genes? Don't they fight to establish dominance and from there the females will select the dominant males for breeding?

This fighting is how animals propagate better genes. If completion is removed and the females just lie on their backs during ovulation and allow any beta chimp to fill them up, their gene pool would be destroyed in a few short generations.

2 upvotesCoronaTRP2 years ago

I think it the difference is similar to wealthy and poor areas in human society. In very poor areas, men have a tendency to become violent and get away with everything, especially since some women are highly dependent on the men.

In rich areas, women are more independent. They can form strong bonds and can collectively dominate lone males and keep them in check if they misbehave. Sure, the same principles still apply, the men still compete for the women, they just use other more subtle strategies to show value. They can't go around and beat every man and women into submission and secure sex that way, because the congregating women will shut him down, with help of the males who want to gain status with them. It just is more efficient for men to compete in more abstract ways, like mastery, money or social status.

My ex: "Native Americans were matriarchal!"

Me: "Yes, and they got fucking smashed by the white man's superior culture and technical innovation. Regardless of your feelings and opinion, nature don't give no fucks. You take what you want or you get nothing."

Her: "But if we continue down this path there will be nothing left but war and destruction for future generations! We need a matriarchal society to achieve peace and love!"

Me: "No, all that will do is weaken our society/tribe so that we get dominated by another patriarchy you dumb bitch. What we need is controlled outlets for healthy masculinity. This is why we have the hunger games."

Her: "Oooh."

6 upvotesscalyblue2 years ago

The only part of the White Man's culture that smashed Native Americans was their propensity to live alongside cattle and rats for thousands of years prior to crossing the Atlantic. Native Americans got smashed by smallpox, trichonosis, and leptospirosis, not patriarchy, and not superior technology.

If the Native Americans hadn't been literally decimated by European diseases, they would have had no difficulty kicking the Europeans off the continent.

3 upvotesyizolo2 years ago

That's where I was going with this. Some estimates put the loss of Native Americans at 98%, meaning instead of dealing with the armies of hundreds of thousands like the Spanish conquistadors in Central America, the notion of "Manifest Destiny" stood against armies of no more than a few thousand at most.

1 upvotes • [deleted] • 2 years ago

You're delusional. Europeans greatly out gunned the native Americans. Natives didn't even have fire arms for fuck sakes. Disease did play a large role in their submission, but it would have happened without a shred of doubt by military force if disease didn't intervene.

What I will say, regarding the Apache warriors, they're some of the greatest champions to ever walk this earth. But even their warrior spirit and combat skill was no match for rifles and greater numbers.

2 upvotesdissentforall2 years ago

The Europeans didn't have greater numbers. 90% of them died to malaria or similiar disease within the first two years of arrival. It took generations for considerable immunity to develop. This also applied to the civil war and division along the Mason Dixon line. You can't fight a war when most of your army is "afflicted by agues and consumption".

The Europeans didn't know the land and often only survived because the natives didn't engage them for entire seasons or years while they wallowed In disease ridden colonies.

Do not think that slightly better weaponry will always give the edge. Just look at what happened in Vietnam.

1 upvotes • [deleted] • 2 years ago

This just proves my point further. Why did native tribes succumb to the Europeans, then? They certainly attempted on may occasions to wage war and drive our the Europeans, but ultimately failed. I say that failure was due to superior European technology and military ability.

Alright I'll bite. China. I've lived there and it's not the patriarchal wife beating/overbearing society that everyone (aka chinese women) claims it is. I can't speak for the government but on a family and business level it's absolutely matriarchal. The men are too exhausted from being overworked and underpaid (overtime 6 days a week is the norm) to be adequate fathers. The mothers thus spoil the shit out of their children who don't receive any discipline and they run around causing a fucking ruckus. On top of that the men have been fed blue pill bullshit their whole lives that they should put women on a pedestal and work hard to support for them. The women here don't put up a front about equal treatment and being better than men. Instead they go the "women are weaker than men so you have to treat us well and support us" route (actual quote from chinese girls). In the workplace, it leads to absolute shit shows where nobody wants to address any problem and everyone is just extremely passive aggressive towards each other. They'll never fire their employees but they'll make their lives so miserable that the worker will volunteer quitting so that the employer can say "oh well he was a terrible worker anyways". Matriarchy is fucking garbage and has no place in the workplace or at homes.

And even when Victoria and Elizabeth (Armada one) reigned, indeed as some of the most pervasively powerful monarchs the crown has ever seen, Britain was still a patriarchy. Which is not to take away from the competence of Elizabeth and, to a lesser extent, Victoria. Elizabeth was one of like... two or three European Monarchs in that era that was not a complete fucking moron. Even if you discount the ones who had a good excuse via inbreeding.

Victoria was okay, Elizabeth is on par with Frederick of Prussia, Henry of Navarre, and a few other monarchs who won the birth lottery and were quite intelligent in their own right. Elizabethan diplomacy essentially laid the bedrock for British diplomatic strategy vis a vis the European continent for the next two hundred years.

Don't forget, even in bonobos society, the battle is for the beta males as a resource. The different women literally collect them up. It literally is about who has the most orbiters, it starts with their children, but if I remember correctly (and I could be wrong), when one female socially displaces another in the ladder, she takes the orbiters from the other. I don't think they take each other's children, but there were instances where it occurred. Again, I could be wrong, but I do remember the whole thing being fascinating and thinking it was a playbook for how women in high school ran their social circles except for the two women having sex after they fight to settle things down. Pretty much everybody gets laid but the lower male monkeys.

81 upvotesGadnuk_2 years ago

Gangsta rap has been rife with redpill truths for decades.

They were some of the earliest to identify AWALT principles, branch swinging, alpha fucks vs beta bucks etc., likely realizing that despite the Disney narrative the chicks were ignoring good hard working nice guys in favor of abusive drug dealers and badass gangsters.

"Bitches ain't shit but hos and tricks"

"A bitch is a bitch"

"We don't love these hoes"

"Bitch, I'm out yo pussy when I nut, for real"

"I'm the type to wear a bullet proof condom and still pull out"

They saw their fellow black men being used and abused by women and wrote street poetry to tell the tale. Nothing happens in a vacuum, and sexist lyrics weren't just a coincidence. Tupac was a real nice guy in his earlier work until he was hit with a phony sexual assault charge, you can literally hear his anger phase in his later music.

It also implies that any form of anger or aggression is weakness.

I get the sense that shaming male "aggression" or "anger" is a manipulative tactic to force men to submit to the whim of a decaying civilization.

There are times when you should be angry and aggressive and fight back. It's a good and necessary emotion to have when harnessed, directed, and controlled.

If another man attempts to capture your village, kill your brothers, rape your women, are you going to be nonchalant? No.

Neither do they want to confront the well-documented fact that Hypergamy creates masculine dominance hierarchies. Instead they focus on terminology without considering that the term Alpha is an abstraction of an idea. They do this because they already accept that men are ridiculous and follow it up by more self-defeating ridicule of men (themselves) in the hope that it will absolve women of their true sexual preferences, Hypergamy and maybe seem endearing to some woman, somewhere, because they've been taught that vulnerability in men is Game.

5 upvotes • [deleted] • 2 years ago

Comment section was worthy as a post itself; it shows a wide array of people's support and opinion on what 'alpha' is. There's people calling others who believe the video betas. People defending masculinity and the concept of alpha males against feminist. People saying that alphas are aggressive, assertive, abusive assholes. Other's pointing out the misconstrued definition of alpha to a selfish cocky prick (aka bad boy) instead of the confident in control real man.

A lot of the misunderstanding to people seems to be that alphas are assertive and aggressive. While it may seem similar it is entirely different. Anyone can be assertive, however, alphas need to make a proposal and seal the deal. Saying what you want and getting what you want are two different things requiring a gaping gap of different qualification. Alphas also aren't aggressive physically as much as socially, this misunderstanding can be attributed to how most alphas will be fit from lifting and that natural pseudo alphas are mostly athletes, large intimidating males and edgy sketchy hipsters. Of course these natural pseudo males don't have the control and understanding of real alphas so they can be anger and will be tempted into being physical.

2 upvotesSamuraiPizzaCatz2 years ago

All alphas fight. Chimpanzees, the animal people always point to when making cases for human behavior, typically attain their alpha status by beating the shit out of the old alpha and ruling over the other chimps with an iron fist.

You punching me in the face and kicking my ass would be the most alpha thing in the world if I were better than you. However, humans don't look at it like that and see people who fight as weak and cowardly, considering all the comments about stoicism being better than aggressive/emotional responses.

Humans don't have alphas in the standard alpha/beta dynamic sense. There are definitely leaders, strong men, etc, but no alphas. If people want to label the human alpha as 'alpha' for ease of language, that's one thing, but people saying there aren't any human alphas is a very legit statement.

2 upvoteshalfback9102 years ago

Only because physical confrontation is their only form of confrontation, right?

We have other forms of confrontation. That doesn't make it not confrontation? And it doesn't make it not valid confrontation. In an animal society, physical attributes are the ones that matter. Therefore proving your physical attributes are superior is enough to demonstrate to 100% satisfaction that you are superior. For the majority of animals, mental faculties make very little difference.

That's not true for humans. I know people who could beat the shit out of me who are not superior to me/more useful than me in human society. Whereas a chimp who can beat the shit out of another chimp is totally more useful.

It's part of why humans have always been into debate and arguments. That is a very real, very visible confrontation where one person emerges the victor almost unquestionably. People who are correct, smart, well-spoken, are useful. They are winners, good, etc. And debate is a confrontation that demonstrates that.

1 upvotesSamuraiPizzaCatz2 years ago

Dude, I said that humans and chimps are different for that exact reason. And usefulness doesn't mean superiority - If you're useful to me to get me into a club where I end up ditching your bitch ass, then how superior are you to me?

Besides, most people don't respect shit talkers. In fact, most people really don't give af about anything intellectual. There's a reason self-proclaimed intellects sit there and bitch about small talk and cry about how people don't want to talk about the intricacies of economic systems or other political topics.

Besides, the guy said 'assertive and aggressive', and how human alphas are stoic and rational. That's a juxtaposition, dawg (or it's not, but IDC if I'm using the term 100% accurately), and if debate is a form of confrontation, then it must also be assertive and aggressive, meaning it's beta by that guy's definition of what human alphas are.

TL;DR - There are no human alphas.

1 upvoteshalfback9102 years ago

Oh, goodness, me.

And usefulness doesn't mean superiority

Well, yes it does. You obviously have to capitalize on your usefulness. Essentially the only meaningful way of measuring usefulness to society is wealth and salary. That is the market giving you what you are worth. In terms of being worth something to someone else, we can't measure that. That's useless to us. Social behavior is about what benefits the society. That's why societies operate the way they do. And wealth is an excellent way of measuring social value.

Besides, most people don't respect shit talkers.

It's not about shit-talking.

In fact, most people really don't give af about anything intellectual.

I hate to break it to you, but the economy and society are now overwhelmingly intellectual in nature. Let's ignore this, frankly moronic, idea you have that intellect is bearded men sitting around talking about economics. Intellect is simply using your mental faculties as opposed to your physical ones. Barring Cristiano Ronaldo and a handful of other physical specimens the vast, overwhelming majority of the global élite, the wealthy, etc. got there not by kicking a ball or by moving heavy things up and down "real gud", but by being smarter and providing valuable tools and services to the market. Unfortunately, facts don't care about our feelings, and the facts simply do not bear out what you are saying.

Besides, the guy said 'assertive and aggressive', and how human alphas are stoic and rational.

You can peruse my other comments. I fucking hate this Adam guy and think he's a mongoloid retard. You'll have no argument from me there.

and if debate is a form of confrontation, then it must also be assertive and aggressive,

It is. See above. Aggression doesn't necessarily need to be physical. The only reason why animal aggression is 100% physical is because physicality is 100% of what matters to them. Physicality is like <20% of what matters to humans. Can you make a living moving heavy things up and down? Barely. But any decent living you're going to make in human society is going to involve mental faculties at least somewhat, including skilled labor. There's a reason construction workers make more than street sweepers despite also working with their hands: They gotta know shit.

meaning it's beta by that guy's definition of what human alphas are.

Uh, I guess. I lost track after like the third comma. Again, I don't like Adam and think he's an idiot.

There are no human alphas.

Only if you accept on face that physical aggression is the only form of aggression, physical superiority is the only form of superiority, etc. etc. Which I do not.

Nah I think he was an Alpha at his core. if anything I think the phenomenon is the opposite, that he could have existed in a time when being an Alpha was accepted, but the changing of America leading to the birth of feminism conflicted with who he is.

So it's a matter of his environment around him clashing with his alpha nature. I definitely wouldn't describe him as beta, no way. Just because someone has some personality issues doesn't change their core affiliation.

Also, those issues were due to his shitty parents and upbringing. His mom was a bi-polar sociopath who psychologically tormented his son. His blood was alpha, but all that mommy conditioning probably influenced those beta behaviors /u/OneRedYear is referring to.

TRP has yet to put forward a reasonable rebuttal

um, you just made the rebuttal...

The alpha is in the guy playing beta, and the beta is the guy being irritating and aggressive in an attempt to be something he isn't.

i know it's scripted, but he's a celebrity holding frame bouncing a pushy aggro loser. the guy they present as alpha demonstrates no alpha traits other than aggression, and numerous beta traits (like inability to hold frame).

alphas absolutely exist in human and other primate social hierarchies. jordan peterson would wreck this kid. adam even mentions chimps here, and leaves off the fact that chimps ABSOLUTELY have alphas, but it's different from humans. female chimps do not have hypergamy, and will indiscriminately mate with any male that comes along. this makes it up to male dominance alone to determine which males pass their genes along.

in contrast, human alpha dynamics are more complicated because of hypergamy. females intentionally try to mate only with the top 10-20% of available men. those men are alphas.

and the joke about DND nerds doesn't change anything... a guy might be a loser in one social matrix and alpha in another. but in the societal matrix at large, the confident assertive guy with good fitness and a good job is top dog in most social matrices.

Why is a reasonable rebuttal necessary? We all live this every day. Go walk around the supermarket. Look everyone you walk past in the eye. Tell me the alpha/beta dynamic isn't real.

7 upvotesSamuraiPizzaCatz2 years ago

It isn't. A person looking away from you doesn't mean that you're somehow higher on the social ladder than they are, or have any real influence over them.

Walk up to that same person who looked away, and tell them to leave the supermarket. They won't. That's what it means to live in an actual alpha/beta hierarchy - it's a dictatorship. My buddy is arguably more 'alpha' than me by mainstream definition, and even he can't tell me what to do and when to do it. Nor can he tell me who I can and can't fuck.

Humans don't operate on an A/B dynamic. A teacher has authority over you until you leave the classroom and school. An alpha has authority over you at all times. Even the Gov't has no authority over you when you leave their respective country.

I'm thinking that a true alpha is one who has supreme authority over them selves.

If an entire department at work is treated like shit but one person decides to talk back and even walk out with no fucks given everyone thinks that person is gangster.

If someone decides they're going to be a boxer, comedian, business owner..etc and put the work in and crush all pre concieved notions that the person can't make it but does, people will think he/she is "alpha" or a "badass"

It's about taking command over your own life.

We're getting into subjectivity now, though. Objectively speaking, an alpha is pretty much a benevolent dictator.

6 upvotesFuture_Alpha2 years ago

Walk up to that same person who looked away, and tell them to leave the supermarket. They won't.

That is because there is no direct power hierarchy between you and them. There has been no hierarchy established.

Now imagine you were some rich famous guy, say Elon Musk or Chris Brown. And you walked up to someone and told them to leave the store. They'd probably be confused, but they would.

An even better example is a cop. If a cop tells a person to leave the store, there is a CLEAR hierarchy evident between the person and the cop. The person unconciously knows that the cop has more power AT THAT MOMENT, in that situation and so leaves.

That is why TRP says Alpha is contextual. Because it depends on the situation. This is true for chimps as well. If you take a chimp that is an 'alpha male' in his tribe and put him into a new tribe he will have no status until he earns it. He might become a beta male in the new tribe if the other chimps are much stronger than he is or he can rise to the top if he displaces the old leader.

Seriously, if you can't figure this out, I don't think you are ready for TRP.

I beg to differ. I don't think anybody would leave the store unless the manager himself told them to leave and had his employees escort the person out.

A cop has jurisdiction. That power is given to them by the people and the gov't. The people can take that power away, whereas a true alpha cannot be overthrown by tribal protest.

I think you're confusing leadership and natural 'leader/follower' dynamics with alpha/beta. It would be retarded to say that there are no such things as positions of power in humanity, the only thing is that instead of being a clear leader/follower, there is a CHAIN OF COMMAND, which is completely situational and does not bleed into all aspects of life.

Seriously, if you can't figure this out, I don't think you are ready for TRP.

We're discussing true alpha/beta hierarchies, not TRP defined 'alpha/beta dynamics'. I've said many of times that there are alpha QUALITIES that people can possess, but that we don't live in a hierarchy that is purely alpha/beta. I've figured this out just fine; Piss off with your condescension.

ETA: An example of how we aren't living in an alpha/beta hierarchy is - mate guarding. Everyone on TRP frowns on mate guarding and calls it beta, when really it's a very alpha trait. And I don't care how much status you had among friends, you would NOT have friends for long if you tried to tell them to leave the bar when they were having a good time but you weren't or told them "no, you can't have sex with that broad because I like her".

You obviously aren't one of us. People move out of my way, they apologize for being there, guys taller than me avoid eye contact and move around me. Trust me, it's very real. It's not how tall you are, how aggressive or rich, it's who you are. The way I walk and my body language displays who I am, and most acquiesce or try to amog and fail.

In the military my chain directly above me almost always fucked with me in petty bullshit gestures and behaviors. They were intimidated by me, and so they fucked with me. When I became an NCO and had equal rank betas working with me, they always bitched about me, trying to make me look bad. My subordinates loved working for me, because I was laid back, competent, shit got handled and everyone stayed safe, if they fucked up I pulled them aside and spoke quietly to them rather than screaming and yelling like the others. I never micromanaged anyone, they got their job to do and I worked alongside them and also watched everything. Colonels and Generals sent me all kinds of positive feedback, often asking specifically for me by name when they visited the base, and addressed me with my first name. That shit never happens to the betas, they gotta kiss ass to get that, I did it by being a competent leader.

Sorta like not knowing much about a sport but still trying to hang with a group that does know it. Like, you know football inside out but absolutely nothing about basketball. In this example, Adam's alpha would have stumbled on rules/players/something along those lines.5

1 upvotesscalyblue2 years ago

A few points that I need to make.

I've watched the video, and like most of Adam Conover's stuff, it's funny if not flirting with the truth in some places. You'd think it was a comedy skit and not a documentary, oh, right.

What's also funny, the guy you're calling a loser has a #1 ranking video on YouTube, multiple voice acting roles, his own TV show, is banging a pretty funny 7/10, and has a very prolific comedy career, while you're "Working in the media" serving kids eat for $1.99 Mondays and dueling over 2 dollar tips, so who's the alpha here?

And wow, I've seen some insecure fucks in my time, but honestly you think this guy looks like John Oliver? He looks nothing like John Oliver. Even if he did, who gives a fuck what he looks like? Does John Oliver sexually intimidate you so much that you need to draw comparisons to him when you criticize someone?

Furthermore, I wear glasses, so do half the people I know, and how insecure are you about your own appearance that a, how did you put it, glasses wearing John Oliver lookalike skinny fat loser on YouTube acted as a legitimate threat to your own sense of masculinity?

If you disagree with, call bullshit on, or otherwise hate the message of a video, then attack the fucking message of the video and the questionable citations of the video, don't attack a guy for being an overbearing, nerdy hipster when that is exactly the part he wrote for himself.

Adam's right in that Mech was full of shit about the alpha wolves, and he's also right in that people who purposefully act like alpha wolves are basing their personalities on a lie. Red pill isn't about being an aggressive, dominant alpha wolf for the sake of being an alpha wolf, it's about being the best man that you can be and being intelligent enough to recognize the fact that men and women are not going to react to, or share viewpoints and priorities on sexual strategy and social situations, and if your priority is focused on being dominant for the sake of being dominant than that is really the antithesis of everything good that I've read on this sub.

TL:DR If a comedy video bruises your masculinity and is the herald of societal collapse, then maybe you're the one with the problem.

The video made some good points and at times was interesting, but I think he misunderstands what is meant by the term alpha male. The term alpha male is used to refer to someone with certain traits that most women find desirable. He seems to think of an "alpha male" as a dumb jock that likes to work out, play sports, and fuck bitches.

At one point, he makes the argument that we shouldn't use the term because society is too complex. Someone who might be considered alpha in a night club might not considered an alpha male in a D&D circle. While this is true, it does not disprove that there are traits that are considered "alpha."

Let's say that the jock character that Adam plays is exactly the same except he is an expert in D&D. Women in a D&D circle would be more likely to chose him over a D&D player who is physically and emotionally weak.

Alpha male is a concept, not a stereotype. It is a set of physical and character traits that women find desirable. For a minute, let's imagine a society where women found men that are physically weak and emotionally insecure to be more desirable than men who are physically strong and emotionally confident. The weak man would be the alpha male and the strong man would be considered the beta male. However, as evolutionary sociobiology would tell us, this arrangement is impossible. A society like this would become dominated by a society like ours.

1 upvotesjairothevaca2 years ago

I haven't watched the video, but I think your concept is quite wrong. You mixed the causes and consequences. Women desire the alpha because he is a alpha, not he is a alpha because women desire him. The alpha is essencially a sociable person, a leader and a person most people would trust on. The alpha has the ability to maintain his frame. The alpha is not defined by his skills or his physical. In a D&D circle a alpha might be a fat nerd guy, but he will be the leader of that group. Obviously, he must know D&D and be good at it. Women in D&D circles will find him atractive because his knowledge in D&D AND his alpha traits. In a night club women will find him atractive because his alpha traits, but they will prefer a man who has alpha traits and a good looking body( assuming looks is a important factor in that nightclub).

  1. In the video they place Alpha Adam into a group of nerds playing board games, showing that he's not the alpha anymore. But this contradicts the overall premise that their are no alpha males. The alpha male has only changed based on the situation, not ceased to exist.

  2. The wolf study, regardless of it's findings, is irrelevant. We're not wolves, and we're not that similar to them.

  3. Adam falsely states the Bonobos are more closely related to use than Chimps. Even the source he cites literally does not say that:

I think you're going to be hard pressed in the legitimate criticism department. I think that a well researched, reasoned and argued critique would be useful.

There seems to be a developing tendency towards disregarding anything that doesn't work with TRP zeitgeist, which is itself split in to camps. Consensus seems to be difficult to achieve unless things are expressed black and white; and life is certainly anything but that.

One thing which I'll point out, which to me is glaringly obvious, is that as a species, we're probably the only one that looks at other animals and deliberately seek to infer and justify our behaviour based off of other species. Yes, there can be similarities, but more than often, it is the nuances that create the most marked differences between species. Like us, everything is a work in progress.

14 upvotesFuture_Alpha2 years ago


  1. Lets start with wolves. Wolves do have a pack hierarchy with a single wolf being the strongest one who sets the tone for the rest of the pack. They are the 'alpha male'. There are also wolves who 'help' the alpha male, who get second pick of everything. But during mating season, they pack kind of breaks up to go breeding, with the most dominant male getting his choice of the females. Like usual, the feminists take legitimate facts and lie about them.

  2. Bonobos are not our closest genetic relatives. It is actually chimps. The guy in the video is full of shit. Bonobo's are a seperate species of chimpanzee that formed AFTER homo sapiens seperated from chimps. Although, Bonobo's have many behavioral similarities to Humans, so do all the other Great Apes including Chimps. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-closely-related-are-h/

  3. Human social structure is very similar to that of the common Chimp (ie NOT bonobo). This is evidenced by observing modern Hunter gatherer socities as well as through archaeological evidence and study of human civilizations across time. Humans, like chimps, have had a dominant male figure with a few allies that define the power structure with everyone else below. And just like in Chimps, human power structure was not always based on merely raw strength but on cunning as well. Finally, just like in chimps, the males at the top have the most mates while those at the bottom have little/no access to mates, unless they usurp the position of the alpha either through cunning or strength or both. This hierarchy (with a few males at the top with all access to females) is evident even genetically - most men are related to fewer men than women (there is greater variation in mitochondrial DNA/x-chromsomes than there is variation in Y chromosomes between men). The video never covers this. Edit 2: I also wanted to add - if people were descended from chimps, humans would have a similar level of variation between X and Y-chromsomes. Yet they do not. Instead their genetic distribution is similar to the one I mentioned previously.

  4. Hierarchies have been historically constructed with some men setting up a perimeter and protecting it as well as acquiring food through hunting (thus achieving the highest status as this is the most dangerous job).

Apologies for my late response. Thank you for taking the time to provide some feedback. Much appreciated.

I must admit, I have a very hard time looking at how we as humans extrapolate information / knowledge from the animal kingdom and then either neatly overlay it on to human beings. It seems to me to be a false equivalence that doesn't hold a great deal of water. Whilst there may be similarities, when I consider the immense sophistication of humanity, and then contrast it to other species, we're so very different from all the other species on our planet. Even our "close" cousins, the chimps and bonobos. To me, I think that this is just too simplistic and maybe that's because we're still very much learning about ourselves and other species. It's a process that will take time to uncover more about our similarities and differences.

Now, I am not going to dispute power hierarchies here. I think that they are pretty self evident and indisputable. I will challenge the overlays and comparisons, because as I state above, we're in a different league to other creatures on this planet. We literally, run the show. Of the 6 or 7 million species on this planet, that should be in itself, quite remarkable, if not, exceptional. That doesn't mean I don't and others shouldn't appreciate all the other species. We're just super different.

Once again, thanks for taking the time to respond.

when I consider the immense sophistication of humanity, and then contrast it to other species, we're so very different from all the other species on our plane

Studying psychology and medicine, I can tell you that the notion of human sophistication is a myth. It is a human delusion of grandeur - a desire to be unique, to be above the rest of the universe. This is the continuation of the 'snowflake mentality' that TRP talks about and on a larger scale was manifested in the belief that the Earth was the center of the Universe.

tate above, we're in a different league to other creatures on this planet.

Are we? How so? Just because we have language? Monkey's and Ape's have language. It has been partially decoded too, it is quite complex. Apes (like chimps and gorilla's) can learn American sign language and use it to express their thoughts/feelings (indicating they can actually think, feel and have self awareness). Wolves also have a primitive language that they use to coordinate attacks on targets (which wolf comes from the front, behind, etc) - it is also a dynamic language where the sounds change based on the situation.

Because we can think? Most people's behavior patterns are linear and predictable. If one studies people for enough time, human behavior can be quite accurately predicted (just like other animals in the animal kingdom) and is the basis for marketing, propaganda and psychiatry. Animals can also think and come up with solutions to problems - crows can count to thirty and have figured out they can break the shells of hard nuts by throwing them under moving cars. Apes have demonstrated an aptitude for basic math as have other animal species.

We literally, run the show.

Sure we do. Dinosaurs used to run the show before, did that make them exceptional? They were not the only species at the planet at that time.

Humans are just like any other animal - lions are given sharp claws and teeth and camoflouge making them well adapted to hunting in the savannah, monkeys are given tails and thumbs to be able to efficiently climb from branch to branch to obtain food, humans got a big frontal cortex and opposable thumbs (neither of these are sufficient on their own - whales have brains of a similar density to humans but no opposable thumbs and racoons have opposable thumbs but not the same density of a brain as humans, hell the brain/body ratio of a dolphin is very similar to that of a human) to obtain food. A big frontal cortex and opposable thumbs (and some claim upright walking) was our adaptation to survive in this world. It turned out that it was the best for adaptation to most environments.

Here is the catch: the rule of Homo Sapiens Sapiens is tenuous at best. A natural catastrophe, disease, famine, drought can easily destroy us - animals are far more resistant to this than we are due to how long it takes us to birth and raise children to a level where they can sustain themselves. That is part of the reason why humans developed civilization.

Of the 6 or 7 million species on this planet, that should be in itself, quite remarkable, if not, exceptional.

I hope I have shown you that humans are not exceptional - just lucky.

Fair enough. How did we manage to let's say, transplant hearts, eradicate some diseases, invent computers, harness the power of electricity?

Strong, masculine men are the #1 enemy to the global establishment.


The Empire Strikes Back


If you are paying attention these days Trump is under full scale attack by the Globalist Tyranny and he isn't doing so well. They took "Fake News" (the Putin narrative) and forced a law through Congress with nearly 100% voting for sanctions on Russia. Trump had no choice but sign it or look pathetic by receiving an overturned veto so early on for him. Trump lost big time. (he was pissed off too) Russia seems aware that the problem isn't Trump, it's actually the Globalist Tyranny, but they are upset he is so weak and incapable of doing anything.


  • What does this mean?


It means the gloves are off and the Globalist Tyranny now wants to end the Red Pill and it's many expressions of masculinity across the political spectrum. They might assassinate Trump if needed, but it looks like a quarantine situation is the goal for the moment.

Expect this mind war to get much worse and don't rule out more real wars as well as globalist police state like crackdowns.

Censorship is coming.

We all know the Red Pill might be taken down at any time. (known it for years)

Frankly it's surprising they let it go this far... we got too popular so it's time for them to attack males who aren't part of the Globalist Tyranny which is 99.9% of men. (and the Red Pill is maybe only a quarter or less of those men)

The goal is not to weaken men. The video literally mentions that dominance is different in different scenarios.

Also, If you have such a fragile ego that you have to go on a rant over a video that hurt your fewwing to feel validated, then you're not an alpha male under any definition of the term, real or otherwise.

Also also, Adam Conover is the farthest thing from a John Oliver lookalike I can imagine, apart from the fact that he has glasses and wears a suit.

2 upvotesgodlesspinko2 years ago

Both viewpoints are complete generalities.

People adapt to the situations they find themselves in, and some approaches work better than others. Both "masculine" and "feminine" virtues are necessary, and help us adapt to different situations.

There are billions of people in this world, and aside from basic survival, they all have different ideas of what success means, and who they want to be. A strong empowered man can be a great protector, or a vain power-grabbing villain. A effeminate and emotional man may not be a fighter, but he may be a crucial player in a large supportive community that gets a lot of things done.

It's all relative, and we need not divide the world into A and B when we have every letter in the alphabet in every language in the world to chose from.

The phrase has been adopted in United States culture as a celebration of this particular type of physique, with references generally skewing toward a positive and light-hearted tone. This masculine body type is a unique cross between muscular and slightly overweight physiques, and could be considered skinny-fat.


Mix of muscular and overweight...and yet can be called skinny-fat.

Something doesn't match up here.

Amanda Hess, author of a highly viewed related article on the website Slate,[6][7] explains her opinion that women find dad bods attractive: "We don't want a guy that makes us feel insecure about our body. We are insecure enough as it is. We don't need a perfectly sculpted guy standing next to us to make us feel worse. No one wants to cuddle with a rock or Edward Cullen. The end.

So lazy slobs of women want lazy slobs in men...so they don't feel guilty about their lazy slobbiness...I am ok with this.

You'll notice that they entirely ignore the well documented facts about women and Ovulatory Shift. They ignore that women prefer masculine, dominant men in their pre-ovulatory phase and feminized men in their luteal phase. This never gets mentioned, because it's too inconvenient. Neither do they want to confront the well-documented fact that Hypergamy creates masculine dominance hierarchies. Instead they focus on terminology without considering that the term Alpha is an abstraction of an idea. They do this because they already accept that men are ridiculous and follow it up by more self-defeating ridicule of men (themselves) in the hope that it will absolve women of their true sexual preferences, Hypergamy and maybe seem endearing to some woman, somewhere, because they've been taught that vulnerability in men is Game.

ETA: To the people downvoting I have a serious question - are you stupid? The video the OP discussed is defining alpha in the literal sense, not using the term colloquially like on here. The video content is relevant - your feelings are not.

They're right, though. Alphas outside of the definition of 'strong leader' don't exist in the human hierarchy (or in wolf hierarchy, which is funny when you see all the 'wolf pack' analogies on here). A true alpha is like a Gorilla - access to all resources, women, and responsibility.

No, that's not the same as human access. I mean if you were to chill with your friends, only YOU would be allowed to fuck the girls, only YOU would be allowed to eat first, and only YOU decided when everyone came and left.

Do that to people and they will tell you to fuck off.

I think you are taking the term too literally. Human alphas are the top of the social order, not literal kings. An alpha male in human society still abides some social conventions to maintain his power. Humans don't rule by brute force alone.

-1 upvotesSamuraiPizzaCatz2 years ago

I'm taking the term to mean what it means when applied to every non-human species on the planet.

Again, if people want to throw the term around here to mean a person who is confident, assertive, dominant, and stress/anxiety free, then that's fine but the literal definition of alpha is not applicable to humans.

The point of the video the OP was talking about was saying that humans don't have literal alphas. If that's not what people mean when they're talking about alphas, then the OP's bitching about it is nothing but a hugbox at this point since they are not wrong that literal alphas don't exist in human society.

When he talks about "alpha males" it's very clear that he's not using the same definition as you. He's talking about stupid, brutish, and unsympathetic men. Sure you can try to argue with him using definition but you won't go far. First a lot of people use the term that way and second it's a slang term meaning it by definition, can't have a single definition. Stop getting mad at people for "using your word wrongly". It's not your word. You didn't make it up and even if you did you don't own it.

Besides talking about alphas wasn't the main point of the video, that was just there to get people's attention because it's a popular word nowadays. All he was trying to say is that being stupid or brutish, not caring about women and having no compassion, and primarily using physical appearance isn't a good way to get a meaningful relationship. If you disagree with that they I guess you're stupider than I thought.
