End College Degrees, Institute Certifications

I received a rather helpful list of IT certifications that provide efficient, self-respecting people a great alternative to the scam that is becoming known as "college education."  Certainly, some degrees still have merit, but if you are a logical, self-respecting person who just refuses to be scammed for 2 years of liberal art pre-reqs that have nothing to do with your major, and would prefer to get working instead of indoctrinated, then this list may be of benefit to you.  The reader's e-mail is below, following a link to the certification list (in PDF file format on my Box account):

Dear Aaron,

Please find attached an article which is a comprehensive listing of IT certifications. I would imagine different authorities would re-arrange the list somewhat, but it gives a good overall picture. I attended a private-sector IT training school called 'MyComputerCareer' and those who were dedicated students made it work for them, gaining at least a couple entry-level IT certificates and an entry-level job. I managed to get four of the 'Microsoft Technology Associate' certificates (the four in the infrastructure track), and the MTA exams are strictly for entry-level familiarization. In the opinion of one instructor, they are primarily for the first 12-18 months of IT-related employment, and there is little need to pursue more of them after that point. Also, the program centered around the A+ and the Network+ certs, which are both offered by the CompTIA organization (Computer Tech Industry Association). They are both 'generalist' certificates, and are frequently referred to in tandem. I think you had mentioned this: anyone who asks for specific advice, this is obviously a field where independent study goes a long way. Personally, I cannot see an 'Associates in Applied Science' (A.A.S. degree) being a necessity. Proficiency with the needed skills seems to be more compelling. I cannot clearly see an A.A.S. being compelling resume material, unless it leads the way to a bachelor's degree in a related subject (but then there are higher level certs. where those who start in their early 20s can be earning close to 200K per year by their late thirties, and they do not involve having a bachelor's degree). 'MyComputerCareer' provides its graduates with a 'certificate of completion' which has limited utility. The school has limited name recognition, and thus the certs are that much more important. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for getting the word out!

 List found here.

(the list was somewhat cumbersome to copy and paste the text so I thought it easier to just link to it.  There is also additional information included about each certification that may be of use to you).

How Whites Are Playing the Victim Game Too

If there is one thing I hate it is the "victim game" that various groups of people play.

The reason I hate it so much is not because it's theft, but it's such a cowardly, hypocritical, and (above all else) KNOWING act these thieves put on.  For when you take away all the lies, hypocrisies, falsehoods, and flawed premises, the person mugging you is not just stealing from you, but telling you it's your own fault.  Sometimes, so outlandishly they claim you're unaware of it, which is nothing more than the epitome of cowardice and hypocrisy - ie - accusing people of "privilege."

But no matter how much wool they try to pull over people's eyes, I know thieves and parasites when I see them.  And when I'm accused of "privilege" or that somehow a group is "disadvantaged" and the solution (surprisingly) is always "more of my money" I know it's just a ruse that less-intelligent and less-self-respecting people succumb to.

But the "Victimhood Game" has taken a very nasty turn.  One so crafty I almost didn't see it when it was staring me in the face.  And one so disgusting it makes me even angrier than when minorities fake-claim they're oppressed (because they at least have a tangential line of logic to their reasoning):

Spoiled brat suburbanite white people.

At first you may say,

"Cappy, how do spoiled brat suburbanite white people play the victim game?  By the fact they're white, spoiled, and suburbanite, they can't possibly be victims in any capacity or another!"

But,ohhhhhh, my fellow lieutenants and economists, they have indeed, and this is where it is particularly dishonest, disgusting, disingenuous, and pathetic, as well as pure genius.  For while you are correct that a white male who grew up with all the advantages of a upper middle class upbringing and the "correct" color of skin cannot claim to be a victim, he can if there's something wrong with him.

Welcome to the world of fake mental illness.

I wasn't able to connect the dots on this one until two seemingly unrelated events occurred in my little online media empire in close proximity to each other.  But once they did, and once I connected the dots, not only was it painfully obvious what was really happening, but it was enraging as to just what level of sloth, laziness, cowardice, and parasitism these humans had degraded to.

The first one was when my e-mail started lighting up with readers and viewers saying the "Amazing" Atheist had done a response video on my video about fake mental illness.  He (and thousands of his followers) were very much enraged that I dared to say I was sick of all the fake kids claiming they had "ADD," ADHD," "Aspergers," and lord knows whatever the latest flavor of made up psychoses the American Psychiatric Association, the public schools, and Big Pharma were concocting.  But despite these diseases obviously being overdiagnosed and despite legitimate concern about their veracity, the fact I dared to say they were people falsely claiming they had these diseases threw the 660,000 strong Amazing Atheist community into a tizzy.

True to their self-proclaimed form, they went psycho.

Death threats.
Incoherent tirades of cursing and threats.
"Cut your balls off and shove it down your throat."
Even the host (a 6'7" hybrid "bully-nerd") bravely said he'd kick my 5'9" ass if he ever saw me in public.

But for all the saber-rattling and indignation, I failed to realize what was going on.  I thought I had just pissed off a community of basement-dwelling nerds, was somewhat shocked a guy like the Amazing Atheist had the following he did, but in the end said "Meh, oh well, time to go write a book."

It wasn't until the second event did I see clearly what was going on.  This event had a similar origin and pathology.

I once again made a video.
The video was questioning about many men who claimed to be MGTOW's (Men Going Their Own Way) were men who were too cowardly or lazy to try to date girls in the first place and opted instead to claim to be "MGTOW" when in reality they were just afraid of rejection and failure.  In short they really weren't truly independent minded men who consciously chose to "go their own way," but were cowards who either didn't have a choice or never tried in the first place, and abused the MGTOW concept as an excuse.

And, like the fury from the Amazing Atheist cult, the backlash I received was equally vocal and ferocious.

"Kick your ass."
I'm a pussy.
I don't own MGTOW
How dare you "X, Y, and Z"
etc. etc.

However, unlike the Amazing Atheist community (which I largely ignored and just quietly accepted his traffic) because I was closer to the MGTOW community, I went and attempted to defend myself.  And this proved to be the key, the link between the two groups that opened my eyes to what was really happening.

In nearly ALL of the debates, discussions, and arguments I had, NOT ONE person was intellectually honest, listened to or digested what I said, purposely took things out of context, even outright lied about what I said.  It soon dawned on me I was not arguing with mentally sane, mature adults, interested in advancing a discussion or figuring out reality, but rather people who had mental problems and lived in a delusional world.  And the reason for their passion and blind rage over what I had stated was that it assailed the one mental lie they told themselves to keep themselves sane.  It shined a light onto their hypocrisy.  It forced a mirror in their face and told them the truth.

And nothing pisses off delusional people like the truth.

It took a while, but within a week of (futilely) battling it out on discussion boards and receiving concurrent residual hate-mail from the Amazing Atheist crowd, I put it together.  The butt-hurt, enraged poser-MGTOW community was the opposite side of the same coin as the hate-mailing, Amazing Atheist community and the copper-nickel-clad they shared in this coin was...

mental illness.

Think of it this way.

Say you are a white person who grew up in the suburbs.  You've had every advantage handed to you.  But, like all other humans, you have an aversion and distaste for work and labor.  Nothing wrong with that.  Laziness was a great calorie-saving survival strategy for 2 million years of humankind's existence.  But thanks to western civilization, technology, and economics laziness and sloth are an outdated and obsoleted survival strategy.  You need to work no matter what your aversion to it.

However, for some groups of people (specifically anybody not "white" or "male") politicians have fed them an outright lie of victimization to protect their egos and get them work-free money, all in exchange for their votes.  However, the human brain is not dumb.  And either consciously or unconsciously, "privileged" white kids and their SWPL parents started to realize that they/their children were not "victims."  Matter of fact, they'd by logical default become the hosts to parasites.  You combine this subconscious premise with the innate human aversion to work and the ego and pride that comes with modern day Americans, and there's a pressure, if not full-blown race to become a victim.

But left with no physical trait that would visually make them a distinguishable victim, an entire generation of weak-ass Millennials raised by equally pathetic Gen-X parents went SCRAMBLING to find a flaw.  To find a disability.  To a find a weakness that would also grant their children the much-coveted "victim status" and all the excuses from being a responsible, reliable, self-supporting adult (not to mention all of the socialist financial perks).

Enter fake (or at least) overly-diagnosed BS mental illnesses.

Civilian PSTD

And thus what we have today and the "fad" of either claiming you have a disability or your dumbass child does.

Of course, this merely addresses the financial incentives humans have to play the victimhood game and attain some kind, any kind of "victim status."  Claim you're a victim, claim your oppressed, have society lower standards for you and sometimes just give you free money.  But what it doesn't address is the emotional, violent, angry, and hate-filled reaction you get for daring to point this scam out.  If a thief is a thief, at least he admits it, takes the money, and doesn't care.  But if you point it out to the Professional Victims they get more enraged at being accused of being a thief than Hans Gruber.

Enter ego.

Understand people who play the victim game (who are indeed not genuinely "disabled," suffer from a real mental illness, or have anything wrong with them) are parasites.  And parasites, by definition have no core, no purpose, no value, and no agency.  Thus, with nothing of real and genuine value, they instead double down on the only thing that defines them - their fake victimhood status - and wear it like a badge of honor.

You see this in the real world a lot.

People who instead of defining themselves by their trade or profession tell you they're a "pan-sexual, transgendered, dyslexic" (no doubt getting their "masters in Gender Studies.")

The high school kid that within 3 minutes of conversation cannot help but force into the conversation they are dyslexic or suffer from ADD.

The parents who almost say with pride that their child suffers from some mental disease or another (but still reads at a 7th grade level, despite being in the 4th grade).

And it's the only way I can think of somebody unmentionable like the Amazing Atheist garnering 660,000 followers.

But if you dare come out of left field and call BS on them, claiming it's all an elaborate ruse to avoid work and the rigors of the real world, you not only take away, but destroy the ONE and ONLY thing they have in their lives (no matter how much of a lie it is).  You destroyed their core.  you destroyed their religion.

And thus the violent reaction.

Violent reaction or not, however, we need to be very clear what is happening in society and the US. Weaker minded people, who eschew work and the rigors of the real world are cowardly scrambling to find any reason, any excuse to do so.  Vile leftist politicians have already capitalized on dividing the country across racial, sexual, gender, and religious lines, typically pitting all groups against the convenient bogeyman of "the White Male."  But do not think this has anything to do with race, sex, or sexual preference.  It is a HUMAN trait, a default setting to be lazy.  And ALL humans will be tempted to scramble and find a "weakness," a "disability" and play the victim as long as there's money and the avoidance of work in it.

White kids in the suburbs capitalizing on having a "mental disability" is merely the latest poison in this trend.

Enjoy the decline!

Tuesday Night Linkage

Remember, there are no consequences for false rape accusations.

DT tells his boss to shove it when the boss changes the rules.  Why can he do this?  Because he is a real man and he has gone Galt.

I don't lose sleep over the slaves I never owned, nor benefited from.  I wish Germans and other innocent westerners who were not part of any oppression had the same self-respect.  Oh well.

Some interesting economic statistics from WWII.

The Father Could Not Be Reached for Comment

Though I would absolutely love to see Target get dragged into court on this, I cannot help but notice things like "suicide," "Aspegers," and employment problems tend to correlate when there are none of those lousy stiiiiinkinnnng fathers around.

Still, I'm sure it was Target that drove this poor soul to suicide and not the lack of a father.  Because, as we all know, we don't need no stiiiiinkinnnnng fathers.

Enjoy the decline!

There Are No Such Things as Financial Markets Anymore

Let us take a very simple concept.

Bill wants to raise money for his new company that he, personally, does not have enough money to launch.  Bill goes to the "financial markets" which is no different than the fruit market or "farmer's market" except instead of fruit or veggies, he is looking for capital.

Providers of capital (called "investors") meet and bid over Bill's business through a slightly complicated process of "going public" which is assisted by investment banks and brokerages.  Still, this market operates no different than any other.  There is a demander for capital, there are suppliers for capital, and they haggle and negotiate on a price.

Now in the farmer's market or even the grade-school-play-ground-baseball card market the only things to affect the prices, supply, and demand would be items that are relevant and pertinent to those markets and the wares traded therein.  And so too should it be the same with the financial markets.  But just because something "should" be doesn't mean it is, and thus welcome to our modern day "financial markets."

The truth is the financial markets no longer represent the news and information that is relevant to stocks, bonds, and other forms of financing new or to-be-acquired businesses.  And the reasons for this are multi-fold.

First, the majority of money being supplied into the market no longer comes from interested investors, keen on launching new companies. It comes from retirement planners who are socking away their monies in the idealistic and outlandishly naive hopes of retiring by 65 (33 if you're a government worker or teacher).  Matter of fact, these sheeple aren't even investing their money in new business ventures.  They're buying stock on the secondary market, looooong after investment banks and hedge funds have gotten the majority of equity and capital gains out of those stocks.

Second, you have speculators who have no real legitimate business being in the financial markets in the first place.  Oh yes yes, I know, they do make markets more efficient, except when they don't.  Their mere existence moots and destroys the concept of a financial market in the first place.  Now, instead of just investors looking to supply budding entrepreneurs with capital, you have some idiot in California using an ECN to make .0005 cents per share profits on a butterfly, triple lindee, hybrid spread (if you don't know what that is, that's alright, you're not hip like all those people on CNBC). 

Third, machines.  Yes, machines.  Specifically machines that execute trades based on algorithms perhaps maybe even programmed by humans.

Are these machines there to provide business opportunities with capital?
Are these machines there to fund entrepreneurial ventures with much needed funds?

No, they're, once again, there to speculate, even manipulate prices, driving them up and then driving them down.

Now we can go on, but I didn't really realize how fully divorced today's "financial markets" were from its literal namesake until I was driving down I4 near Orlando listening to "A Finance Podcast."

The host of the show had followed me on Twitter and said, while he does like what I say, he cannot tolerate the cursing or swearing.  Fair enough, but I, always with a road trip in front of me and hours of time to fill, downloaded and listened to all of his podcasts.  It wasn't until I was just outside Orlando did I realize something about his podcast.

The majority of his commentary and interviewees did NOT discuss the actual financial markets as much as they were:

Government moves
Government legislation and
Central banking

And it is this that is the proof that the financial markets are anything but, and should be named something else.

If you look at the media currently dedicated towards covering the "financial markets," you have to ask yourself the question:

"How much time do they spend addressing/responding to moves by the governments and central banks, versus the factors that actually should affect the companies and the industries therein????"

And at least in this little trial balloon, I realized that the majority or at least the plurality of time was spend addressing governments and central banking.

This proves just how far from free markets we've moved.  When the "financial" markets move, nay, hinge on every word and move from the central bank and monetary policy, and dismiss all that annoying "background noise" of what's actually going on with the individual company, you need to ask precisely what does this "market" represent. 

Does it represent the investors looking to fund the entrepreneurs like it was intended to?

Or has it morphed into this multi-trillion dollar, amorphous, cross-breed Frankenstain monster between government, the retirement planning industry, central banking, crony capitalists, and politicians?

Because one can be reasonably measured, studied and pursued as a discipline by students of finance and economics.

The second is one where even the greatest financial and economics minds are merely observers whose guesses are purely that - guesses.  Because by that time, they all might as well become political scientists and everybody knows that is not a real nor legitimate field of study.

Why the Left Hates Nuclear Families

For once, I don't think there's a language warning in this one!  Still, it's important to know why the left hates nuclear families and especially fathers - it's competition!

I Have Officially Defined MGTOW

While I know there is much debate about MGTOW and who has the rights to this open source concept, I have finally decided that I, being a veteran MGTOW Level 26-c, am the foremost authority and outrank anybody else who either legitimately or falsely claims to be MGTOW.  Thus, after much contemplation and thought, I have finally decided what MGTOW is, means, and will continue to mean into the future.


Thank you, thank you, and buy my book!

Bachelors Degree in "Event Planning"

For the Patron Saint's Name of Frick.  Event planning.

And I thought, "no, no way.  Nobody majors in this.  It must be a scam."

But after searching "I'm majoring in event planning" there are people who actually spent money (and worse) schools that offer this bogus degree.

A Generation of Men Advancing Too Quickly

For all the benefits the manosphere has had on men, the male population, and male psychology, an unfortunate drawback is that it is so efficient and effective that men are advancing intellectually “too” quickly. So much so that I predict MILLIONS of men are going to advance so quickly, and so efficiently, they will be forced to face the the “void,” the ultimate “blackness” and the end of life.

From my latest piece at ROK.
