I wonder if any incels or curious noncels congratulating incels for New Year’s ever, at least for a moment, ask themselves if there is any purpose to saying : I wish you a happy 2014 !
We can always congratulate each other individually and there is some sense in that because good wishes and hopes for at least partial success were never non-existent, even during the harshest times of one’s lives. Even if such times some people were winning lotteries, writing books, finishing their education and finding happiness. But to wish incels, as an entire group of people, a happy and successful new year seems somewhat cynical today, for even before it started poor 2014 is extremely burdened with events from past years which have already outlined and determined it so much that it would have been close to a miracle if it could go well for them. This a question of bare facts and has nothing to do with optimism or pessimism.
Before I declare myself an optimist or a pessimist regarding the next year I think it is necessary to explain a term like “future”.
Future, in the correct sense of the word, is an upcoming time which is yet to happen and which carries a potential of true novelty, of something different and unexpected. This means that futurologists are somewhat naive when trying to make a rational prognosis of the future because they are, by definition, unable to predict real future. What they can do is construct predictions of that which will continue happening based on today’s facts and tendencies. These predictions are based on their realizations of current reality.
All the while, the real future is that what is unexpected and incalculable, unpredictable.
The problem with the upcoming 2014 with incels is that there is a very narrow space for real future in it for them, for the kind of uncertainty that would potentially make optimists and pessimists argue. Our “future” is therefore mostly decided. It’s framework is horribly narrowed down by our unfortunate decisions and acts we did in the past.
Some like to point out that they’re neither optimists or pessimists but “realists”. However, that is not the point. Both optimism and pessimism have nothing to do with reality but are about a dimension in which it is impossible to calculate precisely what will happen. An optimist and a pessimist aren’t operating in an area of knowledge but an area of belief. An optimist believes that things will, within the space of real future as what is a possibility of novelty, somehow turn out in a good direction, while the pessimist believes in and expects the opposite. Our attitude towards future partially determines this future, as an optimistic worldview carries a potential of initial activity, but also carries with it a danger of disappointments and depression once things go south. It is different in the case of a pessimist. His reluctance and lack of belief in a better future will initially make his life more difficult but if things don’t turn out so bleak as he expected them to be his surprise will be a positive one and give him “fuel” to work on improving the situation.
Therefore it is not easy to say if it is better to be an optimists or a pessimist. One could only say that optimists believe that it is better to be an optimist and pessimists believe that it is better to be a pessimist.
Having said all that, as a staunch optimist I will make the following prediction – 2014 will be a horrible year for most incels. Their numbers, desperation and gloominess of their situation will increase. New suicides and murder suicides will happen.
Most people will still be callous, dumb hicks and the topic of incel will still be poorly respected.
Our enemies, liberals and feminists, will constantly find new ways to shame us and actively harm us.
But all of this has been predetermined during the last years so it’s merely about consequences of our past extending to a new year. A tiny bead of the real future, those events in 2014 that we are unable to foresee, will undoubtedly be great.
As for this blog, it will go on. In a slow pace as usual but it will go on. A huge breakthrough has been made by my last post on love-shyness. This is the kind of content you can expect in 2014 -serious and studious. It won’t just be about me but about various sides of incel.
The three kinds of topics that will be dealt here in the future will be included in a poll. The results of this poll won’t determine the kind of articles that will appear but will be a good indicator of what the readers here are interested in.
I will also start publishing YouTube content this year. YouTube is a huge platform which I haven’t used yet. I will probably not start with videos showing my face right away but it will eventually happen.
