Digital Man

Note: Behind the green door is a post about the farcical nature of the young online right, a post about the looming summer of hate that is upon us and the Sunday podcast. Subscribe here or here.


Since the dawn of the digital age there has been commentary about the impact the digital age will have on society. Mostly it comes from how we will do things as technology seeps into every nook and cranny of life. Little attention has been paid to who will be controlling things. It has always been assumed that the social structures and selection pressures within them will remain the same, so the new technology will simply be a new tool for the old ruling class.

In the most general sense this is clearly not true. The oligarchs that rose up out of Silicon Valley are a different breed of oligarch from those who rose up in the last decades of the industrial revolution. The latter were the product of an American empire on the rise while the former were the product of an empire at its peak. The industrial age oligarchs were a part of creating the American empire while the tech oligarchs were taking advantage of an existing empire.

Putting aside the nature of the new oligarchs, the nature of the managerial class that actually runs the empire has changed as well. The type of person who slithers his way up into senior positions is different from the old managerial elite. The top officials in government a generation ago, for example, were the product of different selection pressures than those of today. A generation ago, deeds still counted for something in the competition for status within the meritocracy.

Look around at the people running foreign policy now and you cannot help but notice that they are not exceptional at anything. It is one of the things that makes a guy like John Mearsheimer jump off the screen in the geopolitical debate. In addition to having been right about most things over the last twenty years, he is an immensely talented, intelligent, and confident man. By comparison, Anthony Blinken and Victoria Nuland come off as dull and confused.

As technology has changed society, the selection pressure for the managerial elite has also changed. The legacy pressures that produced a guy like Mearsheimer have been replaced with new mechanisms that produce men like Blinken. These pressures start much further down the development cycle than the institutions. It reflects the changes in the culture brought about by technology. All along the way, technology plays a role in how men acquire status within the social system.

A simple way to think about how this works may be to think about the broad categories of young males that existed in the analog age versus the digital age. The three buckets for young males were the gymnasium, the library, and the playground. The first was for the jocks who were attracted to structure and competition. The second was for the bookish who were attracted to learning and knowledge. The final category was for the typical young male who generally like socializing.

In the analog age, the managerial elite drew from the gymnasium and the library, the doers, and the thinkers. The American empire was the product of men who produced new ideas and those who found a way to make those ideas into reality. The oligarchs who rose up in the industrial age used their wealth to underwrite the scholarly and cultural side of the house. Libraries, universities, and cultural centers naturally attracted investment from the new oligarchs.

The digital age changed how young males live and as a result it changed how the social systems selected for talented young males. That playground group suddenly had new toys to use in their socialization. Instead of kicking a ball around, they participated in highly structured and highly complex digital gameplay. Instead of sorting social standing on the playground, it was done in the virtual world of gaming, online chat rooms and social media. Most important, these became valuable skills.

Look around at the public square and the biggest influencers are not old smart guys or highly accomplished guys, but young guys raised online. None of them were jocks or even played sports. Many have no accomplishments at all in the meat space. They are not experts in a cognitive field. On the other hand, they are not the basement dwelling weirdos their critics claim. They enjoy competition, just the online version. They know things that are important to success online.

The new generation of social influencers are an extreme example of a process that has been going on since the dawn of the microprocessor revolution. Technology changed the value relationship between these three male roles. The skills useful on the playground, now the virtual playground, have become more important than the skills acquired in the gymnasium or the library. The critics in the 1970’s were correct when they said it was the nerds who would eventually rule.

Now, some will say it is the longhouse, the feminization of society that is the root of this transformation, but it looks more like it was technology that made the longhouse possible by changing the selection pressure away from knowledge and deeds to the social skills of the digital space. Because so much of what makes up digital society is useful only because we pretend it is so, it means it is not subjected to the crucible of practical necessity, so convincing everyone it matters is what counts.

Social media is a great example of something that people think is important only because everyone they know thinks it is important. Imagine you refuse to go on these platforms and just live your life in meat space. Then someone starts a viral campaign against you on Twitter. What happens to you? Nothing happens because you will remain blissfully unaware of it. In other words, Twitter matters to the people on Twitter because they pretend it matters.

From childhood on up, the skills that are the most useful in the digital world are not those acquired in the library or the gymnasium. It is the weird, androgynous social skills learned in the digital playground. These define teenage social status and then professional status. Now we are seeing them define managerial class status structures, including the managerial elite. What powers the longhouse is the microprocessor that changed the people in the longhouse.

Not only are the skills from the gymnasium and the library falling in status, but the playground skills have changed as well. The digital playground is not like the analog playground where you can get punched in the nose for violating the rules or challenging the wrong guy. On the digital playground your character dies and you respawn at a lower level or maybe you have to create a new character. There is never any real consequence to failure on the digital playground.

This is where feminization comes into the discussion. It has been assumed that the feminization of society is the product of the feminist movement, the explosion of women in the workplace or the number of single mother households. In other words, generations of men raised by women made men soft. In reality, it is at least one and maybe two generations of men socialized like girls on the digital playground that has made the longhouse a natural home for the new man.

In fairness, not all males have been raised on the digital playground. Young men still play organized sports and they still read books. The real playground still exists where young boys learn how to be young men. Elite culture, however, no longer selects for the traits learned in these areas. Instead, it is the traits acquired on the digital playground that offer the pathway to the higher reaches. By the standards of the digital age, Nick Fuentes is the quintessential digital man.

A couple of weeks ago on my daily long bike ride, I rode past a group of 8 or 9 kids playing football in a park without adult supervision. The first thought I had was, “that’s strange.” I even told my wife what I saw when I got home. What used to be normal and healthy is now weird.

We moved to a ranch after 3rd grade, but when we still lived in town, there was always some neighbor tossing out an old lawnmower, which meant one of us was getting a new go-cart as soon as we rebuilt the engine and scrounged up some parts. Dad tolerated the loss of one stall of the garage, as there were always some neighbor kids wrenching in there.

In those days, America was 90% white and the most you had to worry about is some creepy old guy in a car offering your kid candy. You didn’t have drive-bys or people “cutting” your kid as an “occupational” hazard of just being out and about your lilly white neighborhood. Then came ……….. diversity.

If you look at our graduation pictures it is a simple exercise to place them in correct chronological order, and probably guess what music each of us listened to, just by the hair. That said, we all had one thing going for us – no helicopter parenting. The rules were simple: Don’t get into… Read more »

This argument grates on me. It’s a corollary to “doing the jobs Americans won’t do.” To the extent that either of these two claims are true, it’s because we’ve both encouraged them and unquestioningly accepted their veracity.

This. For example, in 1973 one of our middle school classmates, walking to the evening roller skating party at the school gym, took a shortcut over the frozen local creek, went through a soft spot in the ice, and drowned. Her body was recovered the next day some distance downstream. A real tragedy, with all kinds of support and sympathy extended to the bereaved.

Today, the result would be “community outrage” and the parents would have their lives ruined by an army of on-line Karens. It was a different time, you understand…

It is nowhere near 90% It is largely in the big cities and the closest suburbs, especially if there is a bus that goes from the inner city to the suburb. Certain “diverse” people get along fine with whites, particularly as prepubescent children. Kids can walk around doing basically nothing or they can invite their friend over to play playstation all day. The suburbs absolutely suck for kids. This is the fault of “diversity” Everything is far away and there are no buses and the roads are unsuitable for kids walking/biking on them. They’re narrow with no walkways. Plus the… Read more »

Yes. There are parks all over the city, some are proper woods complete with a creek you can go fishing in. Plus a lot of other lesser parks. Lots of playgrounds too. Though my parents would usually put up an above ground pool, the city pools were great too. The East and West river drives are pretty good too. I used to work just outside the city that was very close to Wissahickon. It’s one of the nicest ones in the city. They have covered bridges going over the creek a nice wide paved trail and a restaurant in the… Read more »

This is probably at least as big a part of it as the proliferation of digital entertainment. People who wax poetic about being outside from dawn til dusk overlap very strongly with people who were children when the US was 90% white and the diversity was kept largely separate.

You didn’t grow up in the South, did you? Most parts of town the diversity was only a street or two away. That’s why Brown happened in the South — segregated schools meant the diversity was not permitted to attend the school in their neighborhood, but had to go to the black school, however far that was.

It’s not that they were kept separate (though they were in the North) but that they were kept in check by penalties severe enough, even if/though those penalties were harsher than those for whites. Largely because whites didn’t need severe penalties to behave.

Social norms are a form of keeping them separate obviously. They may have been in relative physical proximity, but they were also aware of the hammer that would come down on them if they strayed into places where they shouldn’t be.

These days the law is more likely to come down on the person defending themselves from vibrant aggression than it is to come down on the aggressor.

Back when whites still had their balls, negro transgressions against whites–particularly women–could receive terminal vigilante justice. That’s the way it should be because that’s the only way to defend whites from boons. If a nuggra buck knew he might get strung up at sundown, he’d be far less inclined to cop a feel (or worse) on a white girl in the drug store.

It’s a weird situation now with the elite selection pressure for feminized cyberspace boys. Yet their playground depends entirely on a very real infrastructure that only exists in meat space. One thing I’ve noticed is the sharp decline in real computer skills in the younger generation. Some of these kids don’t even know what a file system is, since the so-called smart phones hide that from the average user. The original Internet was built by men with practical skill and knowhow. The first computers were also far less user friendly. We should have gatekept computers and the Internet and shot… Read more »

I often wonder about stick shifts myself being as dead as the dino’s. I loved mine and insisted having it in any sport vehicle. But they are gone. Why? The fact is that the modern automatic transmission outperforms the human with stick shift—both in fuel efficiency and acceleration performance. EV’s are even better, assuming you don’t run out of electrons.

I drive a Honda Accord, 6 speed, ~250 k miles. I get all the efficiency, etc., but even as reflexive as shifting is, I think I still pay better attention to around town driving – which is what it’s used for – as I have to at least think a bit about up shifting and down shifting.

A problem with the digital-transistor age is that it aids, abets, and magnifies some of the worst behavior of children in schools. It was always bad enough that the K through 12 system trapped large numbers of kids with their equally ignorant and immature peers. I think it was John Taylor Gatto, a former teacher, who explored this in at least one of his books attacking modern education. (The Underground History…, iirc) Now the kids can indulge in petty gossip, rumor spreading, backbiting, and whatnot at any hour of the day. Their comments and memes move very fast, much fast… Read more »

The JPost published some details about the incident, because they need to remind their own supremacist base that they are innocent objects of bigotry. Now EMJ has a news peg on which to hang another reminder about Jews broadcasting porn at the Palestinians from Pali TV stations. And if EMJ doesn’t do so, someone else will. Heh.

I watch a YT channel called Awakening (@WindSpiritZ) – a Chinese guy providing Chinese perspective on world events. He has mentioned Mearsheimer recently too. I never heard that name before. It’s funny how some things suddenly pop out from different directions.

Mearsheimer is a very well-respected professor of international politics at University of Chicago. He’s been around for a long time — we used to read his stuff in grad school in the mid-1990s. He’s a 1970 West Point grad so he’s not exactly an academic shitlib. He’s one of the most influential members of the so-called “realist” school of Great Power politics, in contradistinction to the Wilsonian/international “liberal”/interdependence school. To a large extent it’s based on observations made by Thucydides 2500 years ago — that there is no enforceable morality in international politics, that states interact in a condition of… Read more »

“He wrote a paper and then a book called “The Israel Lobby” around 2005 or so.” The article was commissioned by “The Atlantic” — which then refused to publish it. It got published by the “London Review of Books” in England. Then an attempt was made to sully the reputation of the authors — both of them distinguished academics. For example they got invited to a television interview but unbeknownst to them, David Duke got invited as well. The intention was to associate these two with Duke, and thus arouse suspicions about them being “anti-semitic.” There was no serious discussion… Read more »

Not only are the skills from the gymnasium and the library falling in status, but the playground skills have changed as well.  Your analysis is very interesting, but I’m not certain it is entirely accurate. Rather than the playground subsuming the gymnasium and library, it seems they have all merged into one indistinguishable mass. What passes for competition and education now is attained on the playground. This may account for why the playground seems to have changed so much since it too no longer is separate from the other arenas. All three legs of the stool are worse off as… Read more »

Sometimes I really grok the idea that English Colonists really did an injustice to the American Indians.

Contemporary society is indeed anti-human. There probably is no other way for eight billion and counting to inhabit the same planet, so for all the wrong reasons the WEF is right to some extent there. Rethinking and reshaping society away from the current model would be a worthy goal but likely impossible. Urbanization initially was a positive but in rather short order crushed the human spirit and soul. Like diversity itself, the nice/different restaurants were not worth the trade-off.

“Capital infusion” is only dominant in those areas where that is a comparative advantage. Otherwise there would be no point to “wasting” all that capital — those firms would be out-competed.

The question is why governments enact policies to incentivize “capital infusion” rather than let capital seek its own level, which would almost certainly be vastly less than it is now.

When the hospital where I worked went to full electronic medical record, the surgeons rebelled (surgeons are typically the most macho docs).
