Future Trends



Wise man Bill Powell has two excellent posts up for young men en ce moment. The advice is good, unpretentious, practical and rooted firmly in reality. This post is essentially a corollary to those two posts. Now, if you are an avid manosphere reader, you are probably more aware of what is happening in the world than most. Predicting the future is nigh on impossible and more than likely subject to a Black Swan or two. However, we can make good, grounded guesses on various trends that might arise. In the next few years, you will see:

-Less marriages
-More spinsters
-A reformation of divorce law to put emphasis on the child.
-More male virgins
-More alpha males with their own harems.
-An increase in the cosmetics/beauty market as spinsters try and make themselves more attractive.
-An increase in chick lit literature being sold.
-A greater demand for hardcore pornography
-A revival in Marxist economics.
-A comparatively milder revival in the Austrian School of Economics/Minsky's Financial Instability Hypothesis as a way with dealing with tumultuous financial markets.
-Bigger Government and subsequently, more dependence on the government,
-More single mothers.
 -Less people building houses and more people renting.
-The demise of universities due to debt/brilliant websites like The Khan/Code Academy
-Increase in obesity. Increase in obesity being socially accepted.
-Increase in whey protein/supplement/vitamin market. Increased gym memberships. Increase in HGH, steroid use. You'll see a bizarre situation with more obese women and more ripped guys.
-Babies at later ages. Brings more health problems/lower IQs/more insulin resistance etc.
-Less whites. More blacks/muslims.
-The herbivore men phenom en spreading from Japan to other parts of the world.
-A booming videogame industry.
-Booming plastic surgery
-An increase in tourism to places in Eastern Europe.
-The health industry coming under great stress because of Baby Boomers getting old/pissing away their retirement
-The emergence of sexbots
-The emergence of trans humanism/the singularity.
-The male pill
-Increased racism due to a segregated/multicultural society.
-Brazil/China/Australia/Russia becoming bigger players. America, less so. Expect some more bubbles in these countries, eg housing, robotics etc coming our way.
-More transsexuals and more asexuals "coming out".
-More 120+ IQ engineers/scientists/economists 18-25 etc not giving a fuck anymore. Will range from not working at school, to James Watson style rampages. GDP will fall.
-Roosh being involved in some false rape lawsuit. Manosphere and game becomes a taboo subject for many. Will never cross the threshold, but will be as well known as Aphex Twin.
-The Flaming Lips will record their first shitty album.
-On the subject of music, genres will dissolve into parodies of each other. Compare Wolves in The Throne Room to Burzum as an example.
- A swing back to more right wing policies in the general populace.
- A violent event that will be on the scale of 9/11 in the states.
- An increase in the demand for BDSM
- More men dropping out of the workforce to do a Captain Capitalism.
- More anti depressants prescribed. The golden age of the therapist.
- Increased westernisation of culture. Say goodbye to The Salmon of Knowledge.
- More literature becomes written according to the leftist word view. Eg white=evil. Men=evil. Women=subjugated by the malevolent hierarchy. Gay=happy. Expect this to pirulate tv as well.
- Increase in addictions. Expect hardcore pornography and Internet addictions to become more prominent. Cue halfway houses for this kind of thing.
- More bullshit nostalgia. Edgy 80s. Naughty 90s. Nothing 00's/
- Ireland to lose by a seven goal margin in footy.
- No revolution. We will all drown in entertainment.

So, with all this information at your fingertips, my question to you is, can you start your own company, your own fresh business, your own chain, which essentially matches some/many of the above trends? In addition to Bill's advice, is it possible to start anew, using Manosphere ideas?

I've been ruminating over this stuff for the past while. What do people want? They act out of self interest. How will they act? How can one prosper? Food for thought. Any ideas lads and lassie?

N.B From Bill Powell in the comments.

1. Young men that come from good families and normally would enter the productive part of society are more and more turn to criminality. We're all criminals anyway these days in the west so why not profit on it? Actually, it makes perfect sense given that what is supposed to be respectable is all a lie anyway.
2. No one I know will ever marry or marry again. We all know the reasons for this.
3. Every man will save and backup every electronic interaction with a woman to ensure that false rape accusations, false paternity and more bullshit from women won't get him stuck in a cage.
4. Absent a male birth control pill, look for men who haven't had children flood urology offices for vasectomies. A lot of them in their twenties. I know a bunch of guys who have done this.

  1. Damn good article Francis and thanks for the linkage. One of the reasons that I wrote that series is because I hang out with some younger guys who have no clue what they could with their life that would make THEM happy, not what they are expected to do. At their age, they're still pretty much brainwashed but a couple of them have already had their psycho bitch experiences and as someone who's unplugged from the corporate world they come to me for advice. I've come to a few conclusions about what is to happen in the future and these are far from firm, just what I see coming.

    That's just a few but I thought I'd contribute. Like I said earlier, great article.

  2. Very interesting predictions. I can't really comment on the political side and such, but some of the points ring very true, for example the one about literature. Being an aspiring writer myself, and an avid reader, there is no mistaking the trend towards feminist-influenced literature. Anything from stories about empowered women escaping the clutches of their abusing husbands, vampire romances or powerful medieval swordswomen, there is almost no good literature left.

    The other points are excellent as well.

    I also agree with what Bill said about turning to crime. While I’m personally far from anything that resembles a criminal judging by my past, I’ve already decided to abuse the system if I can, because there’s no point in pursuing the traditional lifestyle, even here in Southeastern Europe.

    1. Yep, I'm preparing to become a moonshiner. Runs in the family too.

    2. You mean making your own alcoholic beverages? Not a bad idea; here in Croatia that stuff is completely legit (but only until we join the EU). I never thought about it being a criminal activity. Some of my cousins do it, but it’s small-time, mostly for family and neighbors.

      For myself, I was thinking of some stuff bordering on Internet scams - legit, but not really “moral”, for now and see how it goes.

    3. Oh yeah, I'm definitely up for that. A bit of poteen on the side would be a great money maker.

  3. "-More 120+ IQ engineers/scientists/economists 18-25 etc not giving a fuck anymore. Will range from not working at school, to James Watson style rampages. GDP will fall. "

    I'm trying really, reaaaaallly hard to give a fuck. It's hard. One, wasn't raised to give a fuck. Two, nobody else around me (i.e. other engineers) was raised to give a fuck. Three, those currently hiring want people to give a certain type of fuck on command.

    I want greatness.

    But at this rate, it looks like every engineering student who isn't strictly above 3.25GPA with two internships and six references is going to have to recreate the wheel to get anywhere. Back to rags, even after the promise of a "useful" college degree.

    1. It's hard to give a fuck when you're efforts aren't appreciated. In other words, you're doing a hard course in order to create something of value that would help society.

      But why do engineering when you can use that maths in an investment bank and rob money off others and make a killing? Why do what society wants when a little bit of game will get you farther with lassies than being a good citizen ever could?

      I'm the same. I'm finding it really hard to give a fuck.
