Mechanics of political sentiment

For brevity I’ll use the term “expected resource share/status” to refer to the idea of resource distribution via struggle between political identity classes. If your status increases then your expected resource share almost always increases with it, so I’ll be using them interchangeably.

Sad = Loss (of expected resource share/status)
Happy = Increase
Anger = Desire to decrease someone else’s ERSS
Disgust = Recognition of relative superiority
Fear = Desire to avoid loss
Surprise = ? (Haven’t figured this yet)

Update: Koanic explains, “Surprise is unanticipated significant movement in ERSS distribution and its derivatives.”

(You’ll note these are all concerned with changing states. When I have a better idea of the inner workings of these I’ll try to translate them into differential equations.)

These combine into more complex emotional reactions. Some starter examples:

Pity = Sad * Disgust
Humor = Surprise * Disgust

There are some weird epiphenomena that can probably be drawn from this sort of analysis. For instance, psychopaths can’t feel sadness, and therefore can’t feel pity.

Update 2: More combos,

Smugness = Disgust * Happy
Contempt = Disgust * Anger
Horror = Disgust * Fear

Disgust is particularly interesting because it’s the differentiator between right and left-wing political groups. The right wing prefers stratifiers, whereas the left wing prefers to tear down existing resource preference structures (K-strategy) in favor of prolific breeding (R-strategy).

Bittersweet = Happy * Sad (loss of one thing, gain of another thing, transformation)

Surprise combos:

Surprise * Fear = Terror
Surprise * Happy = Elation (WINNING)
Surprise * Sad = Torn-up, stricken (feels like being sucker-punched in the gut)
Surprise * Disgust = Humor
Surprise * Anger = Outrage

Final thought is about feigned emotions. This is when a person or group wants to misrepresent their sociopolitical position in some way, so they try to gaslight the other actors in the system. The easiest example is when Gammas feign humor: “I’m surprised to learn that I’m better than you”. Another is feigned outrage

      That makes sense. Surprise means internal model breakdown. The need to pursue this feeling explains why people get into the weird aesthetic.

        “muh nobilid society collapsed even tho I was so courteous and nice to the people who wanted me dead”

        color me surprised

        I guess the surprise the fact you gambled without even knowing it? And it bites you in the ass one day. Hence, balance in all things.

    Perplexity = confusion over resource reallocation
    Melancholia = dwelling on previous, more favorable allocation
    Smugness = NEETs enjoying resource allocation at expense of normies/wagecucks

    If only there was a product that could give you 10/10 status instantly

    Alpha Rage and Beta Rage = Fear + Surprise.
    Most common instance is in front of someone their mental comfort requires to represent as a gamma but isn’t obeying to them (or their alpha masters in the case of betas).

    The master can’t help but wonder what it would happen if non-gammas turned disobedient as gammas.
    Obedient non-gammas feel it obscene that people they feel are below don’t share their taxing duties of obedience.

    Both will feign outrage. Aeoli didn’t forget that gammas feign humor, but he forgot to say that it is masters who have been disobeyed, and their obedient underlings, who face disobedience by faking (moral!) outrage.

    Gamma Rage, for me, = Anger + Fear. Gammas aren’t easy to be disgusted, they are low on need for feeling superior (they were made to reassure people high on such need, you’d say).

    Some sadness is likely to be involved as to Humor,

    Can anyone here give a psych-explanation of libtard snarking? Its probably the most anger-inducing thing they do and I don’t get how such low test-creatures would even have a visible threat response. I used to get this look all the time at school from both peers and ‘teachers’. Its funny to see them cowering from blacks and women, but they always snark at the stronger and smarter.

        Absolutely key concepts:



        –Abridged AC Thesis: r-selected psychology is geared toward indirect conflict and bypassing fitness contests. They put all their skill points into backstabbing and social signalling, none in direct combat. “Let’s you and him fight.”

        Resource abundance = r-selection = conflict is useless, rabbits run to another patch of grass and hope the fox eats his buddy instead

        Resource scarcity = K-selection = honor, loyalty, “martial virtues”, direct conflict, group fitness directed ritual combat. Wolf pack dynamics. Competition, purging of weak links, but unified against outsiders.

        Re: Libtard Snark, you’re dealing with an alien thought process. Recognize that they don’t think like you do. Respectfully arguing about facts is taken as a sign that you’re too pussy to curbstomp them, and therefore safe to backstab and demean. After all, if you were really stronger, you’d be making them lick the dirt off the bottom of your jackboots, right?

        Logic doesn’t work, you have to trigger them/apply pain till disagreeing with you HURTS. Then they will suddenly stop arguing the point, maybe even flip to fanatically agreeing with you. This is harder as a student because the teacher can just crush you under the system.

        Trump did this with Rosie O’Donnell:

        Jack Outis is basically the Rosetta Stone for this kind of thing:
