Percentage of Unemployed Men Similar to The Great Depression


So, Peter, what’s happening? Aahh, now, are you going to go ahead and have those TPS reports for us this afternoon? -Bill Lumbergh

“Fuck this shit. I’m leaving.” Those are increasingly the sentiments of men as they drop out of the workforce. One in six prime-age men have no job in America. The American Enterprise Institute says those statistics are worse than those from The Great Depression. While some of this can be blamed on laziness, most of it stems from lack of incentives given to men to care if they work or not, and the villainization they receive when they do work. As men increasingly go their own way, the very people provoking the developing mass apathy about society scratch their heads and wonder why men don’t want to work themselves into an early grave for no reason.

In what NPR laughably calls a “mystery” American men are Going Galt and leaving the workforce in droves. It and other mainstream journalists want men back on the plantation rather than affording them the same type of liberation it granted women 50 years ago. Predictably, NPR fails to realize the simple truth that it doesn’t take much for a man to live on. We can live merry lives on very little.

In fact, I told my best friend recently as long as I have some pussy once in a while, food and beer, and a couple of wheels underneath me and a couple of nickels to rub together I’m a happy man. We are both discussing building “tiny houses” to live in. (I already rent a small house in the Caribbean for $200 a month!) Men worked in the past to keep wifey happy and to support their children. Since feminism has taken a dump on that “outdated” way of organizing society, men are finally figuring out hey I don’t need all this material crap to be happy. Marxism killed the family and feminism killed decent wives.

So men, with no incentives to be hardworking provider modules leave behind slave-driving bosses, HR diversity quotas, 60 hour workweeks, enforced conformity, and gossipy office harridans to do their own thing.

Indeed, it is women who are behind 80% of purchasing decisions in the female-driven consumerism and materialism waste economy. Their insatiable need for everything from $3,000 handbags to billions of dollars in cosmetics to hide every flaw they have, raising their SMV powers the economy. Women also spend 90% more than they earn when one considers the whole of the economy and the forced wealth redistribution schemes conducted by Big Daddy Government, according to statistics from RealSexism. The irony of feminists siding with leftists on environmental issues when in fact it is women’s insatiable desire to buy useless crap that’s destroying the environment is totally lost on the Marxist press.

NPR was absolutely perplexed as to why men don’t behave just like women, not understanding men statistically only spend 20% of what they earn when one considers the whole of the U.S. economy.

In the 1960s, nearly 100 percent of men between the ages of 25 and 54 worked. That’s fallen over the decades. In a recent report, President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers said 83 percent of men in the prime working ages of 25-54 who were not in the labor force had not worked in the previous year. So, essentially, 10 million men are missing from the workforce.

Add me to the list of people who checked out of a life of corporate slavery so I could stop being another Matrix battery powering the lives of deadbeat bums and illegal aliens who live off my labor and the labor of millions of other men. Moreover, my tax money and the tax money of millions of other men is only used by the government to debase us. There isn’t a single government program directly solely at helping men succeed, and this is especially true for white men. We are only castigated and slandered in modern day Anglo America.


Life is too short to work at increasingly shittier jobs for no reason except competitive consumption. Better to spend it poolside with a different girlfriend every couple of weeks


Why support a system that only takes from men then labels us as evil oppressors? Richard Hintzke was a real estate developer who decided to drop out of the rigged economic and labor market and live on his investments after the government-orchestrated 2008 economic crash. He no doubt sums up the sentiments of millions of men.

You know, it looked like the sky was falling, so it was like, if there was ever a good time to disengage, I said, this is a good time.

The economy hasn’t recovered since then, despite totally rigged economic statistics like the government-calculated unemployment rate that says the unemployment rate is only 4.9%. Even CNN reported the government drops people out of the unemployment rate statistics when they’ve been unemployed for only six months.

Another reason why the jobs picture still looks gloomy is that an unusually high number of people can’t find jobs even though they have been looking for a long time. About 2.1 million Americans have been unable to get a job for over half a year. The government calls these people the “long-term unemployed.” During the worst of the Great Recession, 6.8 million people were long-term unemployed…there are still roughly double the number of long-term unemployed than in normal times.

Of course, some men just can’t find work because they refuse to submit to a system that demands an average of $30,000 in college debt just for the chance to become employed, or de-ball themselves and become a nice little office bitch before they walk in the door of their comfy office hells. Worse, the automation economy is slowly taking away blue-collar jobs. Romeo Barnes, a former Walmart greeter who’s now unemployed told the press:

Men are traditionally known for labor work. The lower-educated guys have to do stuff like that. And that’s being taken away because we have machines.


You can cram those TPS reports, Bill

So, it’s really no mystery why men are checking out and enjoying the decline poolside. Leftists have taken away everything men work for then expect them to keep working just for the enjoyment of working. Automation and outsourcing are killing jobs. Men are by nature minimalists, and we only worked so hard for our now non-existent wives and children. As a result of taking incentives and debasing the set and frame the society was built on, not only are men leaving the plantation but America is commiting demographic suicide.

Once again, the high economic and social costs of the unintended consequences of social engineering are bearing their rotten fruit, and blighting the economies of the Western world. It’s all downhill from here, unless the cultural template causing this fiasco is abandoned. Don’t expect it to be. As French historian and archaeologist Andre Piganiol knew, Roman civilization did not die peacefully, it was assassinated. Much as leftists are assassinating Western civilization.

Men Going Galt are only a symptom of a much greater cancer that has infested the body politic. Modern day Rome is burning. Men who stop working will only add fuel to the fire.
