When the most beautiful women tend to go to the universities and the cities to chase the most successful men, their fertility is necessarily delayed. They are then lulled into complacency by an endless stream of adoration and awards even as their best days evaporate.
Meanwhile, a plain girl with no equivalent cascade of brain-hacking reward signals sooner cashes in her more clearly finite pile of chips and has a family. For some reason those girls who got pregnant in high school always seemed to be the chubby, ugly ones. With no line of admirers awaiting them, there was no reason to delay past the first male willing to rut with them. Their homeliness turned out to be the greatest fitness advantage in this upside-down modernity in perfect inverse to our primal desires.
Cities have always been gene-shredders, only made possible by the abundant fecundity of the countryside. When the prettiest women are carted en masse into these kill zones the society sacrifices them so they can grace the harems of the mandarin classes in sterile splendor for a short while.
For a woman who lives by her beauty, pregnancy is just an obstacle to her aims of securing adulation, power, and money from men. The game itself becomes untied from its biological objective of children.
How many jaw-dropping starlets have we seen end up barren because their very job is the appearance of eternal availability as a mate? The moment, she sports a baby bump, she’s never lusted after the same, that irresistible power over powerful men, that unrelenting dopamine surge never to return.
Actresses and entertainers are outliers, but there are millions of pretty young women who have much to gain by staying barren in the short term. Then some short terms later, their term is up, all the prizes they thought they had won but a vapor at midnight when the spell is broken. Then their bloodlines are lost to us forever, or at best below replacement as those species with unassuming dun-colored plumage endure.
Never do we seem to consider that beautiful women are some of the most valuable social capital of all. Just by existing, the group’s men are motivated to the heights of achievement and the best men from other tribes want to join in.
As with superiority in painting or sculpture, the prettiest women help establish legitimate rule over lesser peoples through dominant aesthetics.
Female beauty is not just ornamental but an inspiring force that backs the power of money to drive the massive gears of the economy as much as gold ever did.
Any serious society sees it worthwhile to select for female beauty, in sharp contrast to the present dysfunctional order that aggressively purges the prettiest from the gene pool.
Somehow, modern societies must actively perpetuate and grow their socio-sexual wealth.
Furthermore, society’s greatest rewards must be funneled to the most valuable men. A smart tribe in modern times makes sure to hook up successful inventors with supermodels and intuitively cockblocks charismatic charlatans.
The obvious methods of implementation rely on outright coercion but as I’ve pointed out, patriarchy is hard to restore in post-scarcity, post-agrarian, high-information conditions. Women are better at cooperation than men. From the telegraph onwards, instant communications meant male political hegemony was dead.
Many have noted the single great weakness of women, though, is their susceptibility to public opinion and custom. If the status system can be rigged, the sharia police can be saved a lot of effort.
The female imperative has some sense of indignation when it is being strategically diverted, as the feminist allegory, The Stepford Wives demonstrates, but against the right suggestive pressures they are as powerless to stop it as men are powerless to stop their own lust and sexual jealousy from being used against them.
Reclaiming male selection for female beauty relies on males’ ability to capitalize in turn on the foibles of the opposite sex in the information age while preferably limiting coercive strategies only to where they are most effective and necessary.
Failing that, humans will perhaps start to revert to a tournament species where a dozen dashing males fight for the attention of one drab female until the edifice of enabling technology finally collapses.

Shakespeare’s very first sonnet is an encouragement to a beautiful young woman to marry and have children fast so that when her beauty fades she can point to her children and say “this is what my beauty has made”.
Found it, nice catch, Hoyos:
From fairest creatures we desire increase,
That thereby beauty’s rose might never die,
But as the riper should by time decease,
His tender heir might bear his memory:
But thou, contracted to thine own bright eyes,
Feed’st thy light’s flame with self-substantial fuel,
Making a famine where abundance lies,
Thyself thy foe, to thy sweet self too cruel.
Thou that art now the world’s fresh ornament
And only herald to the gaudy spring,
Within thine own bud buriest thy content
And, tender churl, makest waste in niggarding.
Pity the world, or else this glutton be,
To eat the world’s due, by the grave and thee.
I looked at the interpretations of it and to my amazement, this poem is actually addressed to a young man by another man who loves him! His father? A friend?
The point about procreation still stands just the same, but delving into the past it can be clear they had a perspective very different from ours.
Or maybe, the juxtaposition was meant to be startling? Notes were saying that roses were a symbol of femininity back then too. I guess we have to consider that lifespans were shorter and more tenuous for both sexes.
No straight man really talks about a man’s beauty anymore unless he were a movie star and certainly not in any way that’s poetic or affectionate. There’s some of that kind of language praising a man’s rosy cheeks and so on in the romanticist era but most of those writers were dead by 1850, their mindset replaced in the dawning of the modern massively bureaucratic nation-state when men were mechanized and eventually consumed by the tens of millions in world-wide wars.
Wow. That is like the ultimate no-fap poem.
I interpret it as the poet chastizing an attractive person (could be either sex but probably a man) for not having kids. He’s “niggardly” because of too much self-regard, or indulgence maybe, and won’t pass on his qualities.
Not sure about this:
”Pity the world, or else this glutton be,
To eat the world’s due, by the grave and thee.”
Maybe it means this gluttony (one of the seven deadly sins) wallows in worldly vanity.
@ia I think the gluttony is metaphorical in this case, but I think you can definitely analyze it that way.
You’re right. I should have made it clear that it is being used metaphorically.
I think the smartest men must start seriously learning and practising game instead of wasting their time designing Electric Cars and Integrated circuits….if they are truly smart that is!
Maybe it takes some kind of wisdom besides raw intelligence to stop doing what you’re doing, evaluate the meta-game and decide on the most sensible strategy for oneself.
Last paragraph is wrong, because of genetic engineering.
In spite of the strong note of white knighting – “muh pretty girls are being misled” – a very good piece.
“Failing that, humans will perhaps start to revert to a tournament species where a dozen dashing males fight for the attention of one drab female until the edifice of enabling technology finally collapses.”
Any dive bar in America.
Recognizing that women are fundamentally lacking in agency and are reliant on men to guide or force them for their own good is the exact opposite of white knighting.
One solution I have in mind is taxation. “Working women” — meaning *all* of them, but especially the unmarried women, and particularly unmarried mothers — should be taxed very severely, thus discouraging them from pursuing this destructive path, making it unprofitable for them. Of course, by “married” I mean only heterosexually married, not “lesbian married”.
These two changes: illegalizing homosexual “marriage”, and disproportionately taxing all the “working women”, are indispensable for fostering the environment where the TFR can rise.
Yes, I can see the blacks and Democrats reacting in a calm manner when their EBT cards, WIC, subsidized housing, free school lunches and the rest are taken away.
