Over the weekend I took a little hike to a family event on my dad’s side. I’m not close to any of my extended family relatives because there are way too many of them. Hell, I don’t even know how many cousins I have or what all of their names are, but at last count it was around 50. Of course, that’s without counting boyfriends, girlfriends, spouses, and the babies they’re popping out immoderately. It’s a very “salt of the earth” type of operation on an industrial scale; the alt-whiters who can suppress their autism would love it.
I said hi to one of my aunts, with whom I’ve exchanged perhaps ten words in my life. She congratulated me on having “matured”. Presumably this was because she’d heard I graduated college and got a job that could pass for middle class if you aren’t looking very closely. Now, I’m obviously not a fan of normies, but I’m not writing this post in a spirit of anger either. It’s important to model why they think and act the way they do. Onward then, to the archetypal normie.
The purpose of a normie is to be a low-effort voter. Their function in society is to show up with a sense of entitlement and espouse political opinions that are as moderate as their cognitive abilities will allow. Imagine that every human face you encounter on a regular basis can be weighted according to how emotionally close they feel, and how strongly they hold their opinions. Then imagine they were placed on a right-to-left political spectrum according to their opinions. Normies do this all the time, and constantly adjust their political position to stay in the exact center of mass. This is how they form their opinions, and why only the opinions of political extremists really matter, provided the normies’ sense of entitlement is sated. (If resources become scarce, watch out!) This is the purpose of those late-night talk shows and comedy shows. They aren’t all that funny because that’s not the point. The point is to tell the TV audience what everybody else thinks about, and what they think about it, so that they can adjust themselves to the center of mass. That is, they’re Framing public opinion through misrepresenting what it is currently.
Showing up with a sense of entitlement explains the normie’s approach to working life and dating. The SlutHate guys did an excellent job of defining this as the “Normalfag theory” of dating:
The average everyday boring person’s dating strategy, which is dating people who are just good enough for sex from their small pool of prospects and this selection takes place when their level of sexual frustration exceeds their fear of rejection.
In the world of work, normies can be described as the Clueless types who show up most of the time, spend most of their working hours socializing (erm, I mean “networking”) and refuse to do any real work before 10, after lunch, or on Fridays. When I entered the corporate world I was taken aback by how seriously people take the proscription against work on Fridays- you’d think it was an order from the Pope, except more serious than that whole meat thing. Because normies are magical thinkers, they don’t understand how work gets done, but because they were physically present (most of the time) while it was being done, they are 100% confident that they deserve an even share of the profits and a promotion.
