The Betas Karamazov

Psychosexual insights from a Russian classic.

“The Battle of the Sexes” is fundamentally important for racial activism, particularly since we have White Knighting activists who expend their political capital on ditzy female airheads.

Now, before someone accuses me of hypocrisy by using “game” analyses here, let me remind you that I’ve always maintained that, as regards sex, “game” is essentially correct in the descriptive sense.  By opposition to “game” is prescriptive. In other words, I see the gamesters as correct in their description of women and of the sexual marketplace, but I disagree with their prescriptive suggestions on how men should behave based on these realities.

Thus, we can analyze a few characters of The Brothers Karamazov through the lens of sexual realism.

A “game” evaluation of the major female characters has already been done by someone else, and I see this analysis as sound.

The Wikipedia description of those characters are as follows (emphasis added):

Agrafena Alexandrovna Svetlova (a.k.a. Grushenka, Grusha, Grushka), a beautiful 22-year-old, is the local Jezebel and has an uncanny charm for men. In her youth she was jilted by a Polish officer and subsequently came under the protection of a tyrannical miser. The episode leaves Grushenka with an urge for independence and control of her life. Grushenka inspires complete admiration and lust in both Fyodor and Dmitri Karamazov. Their rivalry for her affection is one of the most damaging factors in their relationship. Grushenka seeks to torment and then deride both Dmitri and Fyodor as a wicked amusement, a way to inflict upon others the pain she has felt at the hands of her “former and indisputable one”. However, after she begins a friendship with Alyosha, and as the book progresses, she begins to tread a path of spiritual redemption through which emerges hidden qualities of gentleness and generosity, though her fiery temper and pride are ever present. 

Katerina Ivanovna Verkhovtseva (a.k.a. Katya, Katka, Katenka) is Dmitri’s beautiful fiancée, despite his open forays with Grushenka. Her engagement to Dmitri is chiefly a matter of pride on both their parts, Dmitri having bailed her father out of a debt. Katerina is extremely proud and seeks to act as a noble martyr, suffering as a stark reminder of everyone’s guilt. Because of this, she cannot bring herself to act on her love for Ivan, and constantly creates moral barriers between him and herself. By the end of the novel, she too, begins a real and sincere spiritual redemption, as seen in the epilogue, when she asks Mitya and Grushenka to forgive her.

Thus, typical young women: cruel, capricious unpleasant, arrogant, shit-testing, and we see that  Dostoevsky falters in his story-telling when he has both characters show “redemption” toward the end of the book.  In reality, both would have continued their behavior until their looks failed, at which time they’d find some beta male to parasitize off of (“marriage”) complete with nagging and general nastiness (“married life”).

Let’s now consider the main male characters, along with their Wikipedia descriptions (emphasis added).

Fyodor Pavlovich Karamazov is the father, a 55-year-old “sponger” and buffoon who sires three sons during his two marriages. He is rumored to have fathered an illegitimate son, Pavel Fyodorovich Smerdyakov, whom he employs as his servant. Fyodor takes no interest in any of his sons, who are, as a result, raised apart from each other and their father. The relationship between Fyodor and his adult sons drives much of the plot in the novel. 

Dmitri Karamazov

Dmitri Fyodorovich Karamazov (a.k.a. Mitya, Mitka, Mitenka, Mitri) is Fyodor Karamazov’s eldest son and the only offspring of his first marriage, with Adelaida Ivanovna Miusov. Dmitri is considered to be a sensualist, much like his father, spending large amounts of money on nights filled with champagne, women, and whatever entertainment and stimulation money can buy. Dmitri is brought into contact with his family when he finds himself in need of his inheritance, which he believes is being withheld by his father. He was engaged to be married to Katerina Ivanovna, but breaks that off after falling in love with Grushenka. Dmitri’s relationship with his father is the most volatile of the brothers, escalating to violence as he and his father begin fighting over the same woman, Grushenka. While he maintains a good relationship with Ivan, he is closest to his younger brother Alyosha, referring to him as his “cherub”.

Fyodor the father and Dmitri the eldest son, the rivals for the “affections” (sic) of Grushenka, are both complicated characters.  Although they both – particularly the father – have some of the “dark triad” traits so believed by the gamesters, ultimately both  men are hardcore Betas – pussy pedestalizing obsessives, with infinite fucks given (IFG) – contrary to the assumed zero fucks given (ZFG) attitude of the Alpha – with a case (particularly for Dmitri) of “oneitis.”  Thus, both men are easy prey for the malevolent Grushenka, playing with them in the same manner that a spiteful (female) cat would torment a mouse.  Thus: Fyodor and Dmitri: Beta Males.   They are both classic Roissyite Gamesters as well: IFG pussy pedestalizers, making their entire lives revolving around women.

Ivan Fyodorovich Karamazov (a.k.a. Vanya, Vanka, Vanechka) is the 24-year-old middle son and first from Fyodor’s second marriage to Sofia Ivanovna. He is disturbed especially by the apparently senseless suffering in the world. He says to Alyosha in the chapter “Rebellion” (Bk. 5, Ch. 4), “It’s not God that I don’t accept, Alyosha, only I most respectfully return him the ticket.” From an early age, Ivan is sullen and isolated. His father tells Alyosha that he fears Ivan more than Dmitri. Some of the most memorable and acclaimed passages of the novel involve Ivan, including the chapter “Rebellion”, his “poem” “The Grand Inquisitor” immediately following, and his nightmare of the devil (Bk. 11, Ch. 9). Ivan’s relationship with his father and brothers are rather superficial in the beginning. He is almost repulsed by his father, and had no positive affection towards Dmitri. While he doesn’t dislike Alexei, he didn’t have any deep affection for him either. But towards the end of the novel, his relationship with his siblings gets more complicated. Ivan falls in love with Katerina Ivanovna, who was Dmitri’s betrothed. But she doesn’t start to return his feelings until the end.

Ivan – rebellious, intellectually dissident, cold – is closest to being an alpha in the book, but his “oneitis” for Katerina Ivanovna and his “brain fever” – a sign of weakness – classify him as a Beta, a high Beta, but a Beta nevertheless.

Alexei Fyodorovich Karamazov (a.k.a. Alyosha, Alyoshka, Alyoshenka, Alyoshechka, Alexeichik, Lyosha, Lyoshenka) at age 20 is the youngest of the Karamazov brothers, the youngest child by Karamazov’s second wife and thus Ivan’s full brother. The narrator identifies him as the hero of the novel in the opening chapter, as does the author in the preface. He is described as immensely likable. At the outset of the events, Alyosha is a novice in the local Russian Orthodox monastery. His faith is in contrast to his brother Ivan’s atheism. His Elder, Father Zosima, sends him into the world, where he becomes involved in the sordid details of his family. In a secondary plotline, Alyosha befriends a group of school boys, whose fate adds a hopeful message to the conclusion of the novel.

With respect to being an Orthodox novice, and his spending more time with young boys (maybe he should have become a Roman Catholic priest?) than young women, Alexei is MGTOW.  However, when he does interact with women, he typically does so in a bashful, clumsy, hand-twisting manner.  Hence, Alyosha = Beta.

Pavel Fyodorovich Smerdyakov, widely rumored to be the illegitimate son of Fyodor Karamazov, is the son of “Reeking Lizaveta”, a mute woman of the street who died in childbirth. His name, Smerdyakov, means “son of the ‘reeking one'”. He was brought up by Fyodor Karamazov’s trusted servant Grigory Vasilievich Kutuzov and his wife Marfa. Smerdyakov grows up in the Karamazov house as a servant, working as Fyodor’s lackey and cook. He is morose and sullen, and, like Dostoyevsky, suffers from epilepsy. The narrator notes that as a child, Smerdyakov collected stray cats to hang and bury them. Generally aloof, Smerdyakov admires Ivan and shares his atheism.

Pavel is a MGTOW Omega male.  At his best, he’s a low Beta.

Father Zosima, the Elder Father Zosima is an Elder and spiritual advisor (starets) in the town monastery and Alyosha’s teacher. He is something of a celebrity among the townspeople for his reputed prophetic and healing abilities. His popularity inspires both admiration and jealousy amidst his fellow monks. Zosima provides a refutation to Ivan’s atheistic arguments and helps to explain Alyosha’s character. Zosima’s teachings shape the way Alyosha deals with the young boys he meets in the Ilyusha storyline.

The character of Father Zosima was to some extent inspired by that of Saint Tikhon of Zadonsk.

Father Zosima as an Elder monk is obviously MGTOW.  Before entering the monastery, as a young man, he was somewhat similar to Ivan Karamazov, a high Beta with some Alpha traits. More importantly, the “all responsible for one another” philosophy of Father Zosima, as well as the outlook of Alyosha (the author-proclaimed “hero” of the novel), is that if Dostoevsky himself.  This is a form of Russian (The Third Rome) messianic Christianity, reflecting the aspects of the Russian soul discussed by Spengler in The Decline of the West.  Thus, Father Zosima asserts a form of collectivist Brotherhood, mutual care and love horizontally across society, in a leveling egalitarian manner, independent of social rank – the expansive horizon, the horizontal plane, as discussed by Spengler. While this is not our Nietzschean “cup of tea” so to speak, it does reflect a type of “will to power” = the idea of the inevitable victory of this worldview, the memetic conquest of humanity (Russian Bolshevism – a secularized version of Father Zosima’s philosophy?).

Ilyusha, Ilyushechka, or simply Ilusha in some translations, is one of the local schoolboys, and the central figure of a crucial subplot in the novel. His father, Captain Snegiryov, is an impoverished officer who is insulted by Dmitri after Fyodor Karamazov hires him to threaten the latter over his debts, and the Snegiryov family is brought to shame as a result. The reader is led to believe that it is partly because of this that Ilyusha falls ill, possibly to illustrate the theme that even minor actions can touch heavily on the lives of others, and that we are “all responsible for one another”.

If this child did not die and became a man, he’d most likely be a Beta or an Omega.

In summary, the Karamazovs were a bunch of Beta males who were manipulated, and ruined, by horrific nasty females. The only Karamazov who ended the story not badly ruined was Alyosha, not coincidentally the MGTOW Karamazov.  There’s a lesson there, I think.

Consider that young men typically have very strong sex drives.  Then further consider that increasing numbers of young heterosexual men are going MGTOW.  How terrible must today’s young women be to trigger such a reaction, to make men go against their most powerful biological drives.  This is something that women would do well to reflect upon.


Men in the “movement” themselves should reflect upon The Nature of Woman, and not waste their time and energy, and expend their political capital, defending what is not worth defending.  Although none of the male characters in The Brothers Karamazov are admirable from my perspective, some are worse than others.  Let’s not have “movement leaders” channeling Fyodor and Dmitri (hopefully, no Pavels are among us), turning themselves inside out for sly, malicious females.

Rotten Orange News: The Yahweh Emperor

Hey, Trump fanboys….

…good thing he at least got something done in his Presidency, right?

Isn’t it great that Trump is expending his political capital to please Jews who didn’t vote for him, rather than fulfilling his campaign promises to the White Americans who did vote for him?  And we got tax breaks for wealthy Bush-Clinton supporters as well!  It just gets better and better!

What a neg!  Against his own followers, unfortunately.  As usual.

That sound you hear is Roissy, weeping softly, huddled in a corner, blowing his nose into a crumpled MAGA hat.

What the point of all the anti-Trump posts at this blog (besides the fact that the contents reflect current events of interest to Whites)?  By rubbing Der Movement’s face in their humiliation of Trump’s constant cuckiness, one can hope that the “man on white horse syndrome” will be cured.  Doubtful, though.

Turnabout Is Fair Play

Oil drillers and mustard dippers should be ostracized as well.

Issues of miscegenation are important for EGI, as well as for parental and familial kinship.  Dissuading relationships across wide racial lines is therefore a good thing.  I note that Roissy is celebrating an example of “shark shaming” – White women who date Coloreds (“mudsharks”)* being ostracized by White men.

Now, such “shark shaming” is a good thing, so why not extend it to the opposite sex direction as well?   Shouldn’t White women ostracize White men who date (or marry) Colored women?  The outrageous hypocrite Roissy joyfully discusses his Negro and Oriental sex partners, and indeed claims that White men can “increase their SMV” by miscegenation; yet he supports “shark shaming.”  

True enough, since women are the rate limiting step in reproduction, White female miscegenation is worse than that of White males.  But “worse” implies degree, not a Manichean good/bad distinction.  In other words, just because White male miscegenation is “not as bad” as that of White females, it doesn’t mean that White male miscegenation is good.  It’s bad as well, and the “oil drillers” and “mustard dippers” should be ostracized as well.

Can we expect anything else from Roissy?  This is the same liar who peddled the ludicrous idea that Trump won Pennsylvania, and hence the election, because of the endless caravans of Amish horse and buggies descending upon voting centers, while the reality was (and was pointed out here, with evidence cited) that the difference in Pennsylvania was all of the rust belt Micks, Wops, and Polacks from Joe Biden country who eagerly flocked to a candidate portrayed in the media as a “racist” and a “fascist.”

What else do expect from a HBD gamester but lies and hypocrisy?

*Does this include Ann Coulter?  If not, why not?

Roissy is a Bit Behind the Times

Laughable.

First, Roissy said that having Sessions as Attorney General alone would justify having Trump as President.

Now we have this:

Trump’s instincts about Sessions were right; he’s a Boomer cuckservative who will fold when the fight gets going.

Of course, some of us have been criticizing Sessions for months.

Note to reader: Leave Roissy to have his race traitor sexual relations with Negresses and Asiatrices and get the real news from sites like EGI Notes.

Der Movement in Der News, 10/26/17

More nonsense.

Nihilistic hedonist Roissy, a self-admitted race-mixer who has chronicled his sexual adventures with Negro and Oriental females, tells us that:

Hillary Clinton is going to jail

Maybe she is.  Who knows?  But we can ask, which is more likely to happen first: leftist harridan Hillary Clinton going to jail, or leftist cuck Donald Trump being impeached?  A close call, I think.

And then we see this:

Counter-Currents now has a new shopping cart system, and the best way for us to debug it is for you to put items into your cart and buy them.

Let’s give credit where credit is due: these guys certain are innovative when it comes to thinking up new ways of getting “activists” to give up their hard-earned money.  Help to debug our system by buying our stuff!  One hopes Brimelow is paying attention; the opportunities for VDARE to adopt similar tactics to keep all the Happy Penguins comfortable on their leafy New England iceberg abound.

Do listen to that podcast.  Is it because it is well done?  No.  The personages discussed, or doing the discussing, are important?  No.  The events described are of significant impact?  No.  Instead, because it is yet another small spotlight that illuminates the madhouse of Der Movement, and how the potential of the Trumpian chaos is being wasted.

Some questions.  Isn’t this Chapman the same “based stickman” that the Alt Right was telling us, not so long ago, was worthy of our awe and admiration?  Aren’t these civic nationalists thugs, in their own way no better than Antifa, representative of the same Alt Lite that certain Alt Right leaders were telling us, not so long ago, that we should be in a “big tent” alliance with?  And do you remember what Far-Right dissident (hint: see this) was telling you, correctly, that the “big tent” was a bad idea, and that WNs should have nothing to do with the Alt Lite?  And aren’t all these people – Alt Right as well as Alt Lite – the same who go to rallies dressed up as if they just came out of a cosplay convention, and that after telling us we should eschew “fascist” uniforms because such are “un-American” and would “turn off the normies?”  Given that American rightist populism has an established history of uniforms (e.g., the Silver Shirts), and given that the comic book characters these cosplaying Alters dress up as are for the most part Jewish creations, which is more “un-American?”  Do you think that “normies” will follow men dressed up like Captain America or Batman?

The Despicable McCain

Sociopathic butcher.

I have written about John McCain a number of times, including linking to the excellent “ode to joy” post.  Here’s the latest about this filthy scum (emphasis added)

The Occupation Government in Washington has presided over the Death of the West. The world order McCain defends is, quite explicitly, built on the dispossession of the European-Americans who actually created the American polity. If our civilization or country is to survive in any meaningful sense, that order must be destroyed.
And that means replacing the political class, the enemy collaborators, exemplified by the likes of Senator McCain. His warmongering against a nuclear armed Russia is unhinged. His desire to hurt our own nation is so unrelenting and energetic one wonders if he is working under duress or threat of blackmail. I almost hope so. To think he actually believes these ideas is a terrifying possibility.
It is not polite to speak ill of the terminally ill. Yet this cruel, murderous and thoroughly despicable character poses a threat not just to the existence of the American nation, but to the very lives of people all over the world.
I wish the Senator no harm. I only offer a desperate prayer in self-defense that his retirement will be forthcoming and his media megaphone removed.
The political life not just of our country, but of the world, must be rid of this Man of Blood, this sociopathic butcher—who, shuffling to his grave, seems determined to drag us all down with him.

As Roissy continues to agonize about those nasty White ethnics, McCain’s ancestry is discussed here.

The Roaches Get Ready To Scurry

Pathetic obese, Jew-connected cuck.

Amnesty, courtesy of the Cuck Emperor.  Fake “border security” in exchange for amnesty – where have we ever heard that before?  Yeas, that’s right – the other “man on white horse” hero, Ronald Reagan.  Behold treason:

That bill would offer a path to citizenship to hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants brought to American as children who graduated high school or obtained a GED and pursued higher education, served in the military or worked lawfully for several years.
The meeting comes one week after Trump announced plans to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, and surprised Republicans by cutting a deal with Democratic leaders on hurricane relief, government funding and extending the nation’s debt limit.
The dinner also followed a flurry of bipartisan meetings at the White House. Trump, at a meeting with moderate Republicans and Democrats Wednesday afternoon, pushed for action on a legislative fix for DACA, but supported pairing it with border security, according to Rep. Kurt Schrader, D-Oregon.
It’s unclear how far any agreement can proceed on Capitol Hill without buy in from Republicans controlling both chambers.
In a statement Wednesday following a DACA meeting between Pelosi, House Speaker Paul Ryan and other top lawmakers, Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong said GOP leaders believe “any solution needs to address border security and enforcement, which are the root causes of the problem. Discussions among the Republican conference will continue in the coming weeks.”

Good to see Ryan is further to the right than Trump on this.  But, hey, look at the Antifa issue – Pelosi is further to the right than Trump.  It’s not really hard to be on Trump’s right these days.  Even Karl Marx could probably manage it.

Antifa good, White patriots bad:

The White House signaled that President Donald Trump plans to sign a joint resolution passed by Congress Tuesday condemning white supremacists, neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members in the wake of violence sparked by a white nationalist rally last month in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Let this all come to pass, and I WILL hold the “movement” accountable for its blind Trump worship, its endless bad judgement and obsessively repeated “man on white horse” escapades, its fervent embrace of ethnic affirmative action, and its patent dishonesty in refusing to acknowledge its error with Trump.  I’ll wait.  The other shoe will drop soon enough.  Meanwhile, enjoy the spectacle of Roissy’s homoerotic fervor, sweatily writing about Trump’s “compliance game” and “poon commandments,” while Alt Righters scribble about “4-D chess,” and the Alt Wrongers, like roaches exposed to light, scurry away to their HBD hovels.

I’ll wait.  And when the far-left, anti-White, omega male cuck Trump unleashes betrayal on the base, Der Movement will be exposed, at least here, as the travesty it really is.
