Dissent and skepticism are the basis of progress in all fields of human knowledge. However from time to time, societies lapse into outright worship of one viewpoint. Such single-minded worship always causes great misery for the majority and encourages unscrupulous people to act on their worst desires.

Progress is not possible, unless the status quo is disturbed. Usually such shifts require two factors, namely:  a crumbling status quo and skeptics who will verbalize the obvious.

My job is to point out that the emperor has no clothes, and is indeed naked.

    Hey, do you have an email anywhere? I wanted to email you but couldn’t find one. Anyway I just found Dissention and I agree with a lot of what you’re writing. Have you heard of Basic Income? It’s basically just like your MCE, and thousands of people have been discussing it for a long time. They even implemented it in a village in Namibia as a test (http://www.bignam.org/) Anyway, I’ll definitely be a regular follower of your blog from now on.. my name’s Sam by the way, I run the blog at http://www.xamuel.com. Cheers 🙂
    Thanks! I have thought about this problem for many years and short of putting a floor under the living standard of every person on earth, there is no real solution to this problem.

    There I said it! Not just every person in the west but every human being on earth. An increase in population is not a big issue, as affluence makes people have fewer kids. The technology exists.. so why not?

    Hello, I wanted to ask you, where do you find your escorts? I am interested in finding some myself because of all the reasons you have stated in your blog…I agree with you about the sad state of affairs of women. Anyway, you should have my e-mail address in this comment, I would very much appreciate it if you e-mailed me back. Or if you would make a post on your blog about where you find them, that would be great as well. Thank you so much for your blog, it is truly a beacon of light.

    Hi, what’s your opinion of brothels, both here in the USA (specifically NV) and around the world? I did a search on your site and you mostly talk about escorts and had a result about brothels but it was about the economics and monkeys. Thanks for your thoughts.

    Brothels in the conventional sense, large building + many women, offer mediocre value for money. Incalls in urban condos/ posh hotel rooms are a different game altogether, and often offer amazing value + good attitude.

    That is your choice.

    How come you get down-voted at the spearhead though your post is very useful? I noticed shorter emotionally loaded comments get more up-votes than long posts with insightful questions as you posed. And somebody told me emotions are more the realm of women but it seems it moves any gender as emotion means “to move”…

    What up DA, I wanted to take you on your offer for a guest post.

    Its called Indian Philo Semitism and Judaic Indophilia ,as you may guessed about Hindu Jewish relations and why they are the way they are.

    Its about 1250 words, rather long, let me know ho you want to go about this.


    1250 words is OK. Send it as a comment, embed 3 html links (say google.com) in it and akismet will put it in an moderation queue. I can then cut and paste it as a new post with author attribution.

        Come on, if people think the analysis here doesn’t match up:
        Write your own, unless all you have to contribute is criticism.
        After all, “Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.”
        Unless of course, you are afraid that you don’t match up intellectually …

    I’m happily married. I enjoy spanking girls, but my wife is very lukewarm with it. Can you tell me whether or not escorts are generally amenable to spanking play?

    Some are and some are not. You have to read their ads or independent reviews about them to find that out. Typically words in their ads like “enjoy light-submission” etc can be helpful to identify those that are OK with it. Similarly reviews can be helpful. In my experience a significant percentage, though not the majority of escorts etc, are OK with a reasonably brisk but not intense spanking if they are not repelled by you and vice-versa.

  25. November 27, 2013 at 10:20 am

    Hello, Advocatus. I very much enjoy reading your blog, you have valuable insights. I understand you have experience with escorts. I am a 20 year old guy who plans to procure the services of escorts in the near future. I have some questions that I would greatly appreciate if you could answer:

    1. How much does the average escort charge for a 1 hour session? Me being strapped for cash, I am very unwilling to spend more than $200.

    2. Do escorts generally allow kissing and cuddling? For me, physical intimacy is much more important than mechanical, boring sex.

    3. Do escorts generally allow their clients to perform oral sex on them? This is something I am very interested in doing.

    4. Do escorts stay for the full allotted time period, or do they leave once their clients climax?

    5. Is there any “escort etiquette” that I should know about?

    6. I have heard that many escorts especially do not like servicing black men, for whatever reasons. Is this true?

    Thank you

    • November 27, 2013 at 11:43 am

      A 20 year old in pursuit of escorts? Sounds like you are ahead of your time, young man. Not to interfere with Advocatus’ reply to your comment, but I just wanted to throw in my $.02 – Like Advocatus, I have experience with escorts as well and I have written blog topics about some of my endeavors. Advocatus’ blog has influenced me to create my own blog and I agree with most of what the man says.

      My experiences, well some of them, remain untold for various reasons. I have my reasons for why I engage and I have also written a blog topic about escorts who do not like servicing black men. (http://homeiswherethehateis.wordpress.com/2013/10/15/escort-etiquette-i-are-escorts-racist-against-black-men/) – I will not create a blog about how to use them, because Advocatus has already done so. I am just happy to see more men of high standards refuse to deal with any BS from these women (in the dating game, etc.)

      • November 27, 2013 at 11:59 am

        Lol, thanks. I refuse to participate in the cesspool we call the modern dating scene or take part in any other tedious courtship rituals (ie “gaming women”) and would much rather just pay a girl a couple hundred dollars 2-3 times a year to pretend she likes me for an hour or so.

      • November 27, 2013 at 12:08 pm

        LOL – Well, I can speak from experience that yes, while some girls pretend, others may actually like you on a platonic level, providing you have a sense of etiquette and respect. Me? I do this several times every month (have to take a small break from it due to hideous winter weather). I have no problem dealing with women outside of that and while I have females throwing themselves at me (especially on a place like Facebook), most women are full of shit. I refuse to go back.

  26. November 27, 2013 at 1:36 pm

    For me, if escorts prove to be a viable option, I do not plan to ever deal with “real women” romantically. Even now, I pretty much ignore girls. And they, for the most part, ignore me back. Can’t imagine it being any other way.

    • December 30, 2013 at 11:34 am

    Escort lifestyle is the way to go for the average male. If you are not good looking (7/10+), you will always have a hard time getting attractive girls. I make slightly above average wage (I’m like in the top 35% money making wise) and can easily afford 1-2 escorts per week (I’m from austria, it’s 100% legal here and quality is good) + vacations. In the past I wasted way more money going out to nightclubs, dates, … and almost never got sex out of it, or only after going through endless bullshit. I have to say, this method does not work if you want children (the only legit reason to get a girlfriend in my opinion), but I dont want them, so it works for me.

    I just stumbled onto your blog by someone linking your Simpsons article on a random Simpsons reddit post. While your philosophical foundations differ from mine own (I grew up a sheltered goody-two shoes optimist and still mostly am), this is truly intelligent, insightful writing that I really appreciate as a fellow skeptic. I would rank your writing up there with Interfluidity or Ron Unz’s writings (my two favorite bloggers), and am somewhat surprised that despite your blogs 6+ year long history, I have never once seen you linked on FTAlphaville or some of the other link portals I read daily. Guessing its probably stigma associated with your other, non-policy related articles. Anyways keep thinking deeply and keep writing, you just gave me a giant backlog to add to reading list!

    There is an interesting reason I added that content. Hint- I knew that doing so would reduce its sharing on more mainstream sites.
