Is that the correct use of a semicolon? I got kicked out of school before I learned about them.
Nope, you need two independent clauses. The first one is a fragment.

no thats worse than beta.

thats omega.

people give beta wayyy too bad of a rep.

beta means servant, second place, white knight, treats their girl good.
betas are likely smarter than alphas too.


it's not the worst thing in the world. most betas will have many gfs throughout their life, are civil, polite, nice, abide by morals, are pretty comfortable around all kind of people and the issue with them is that they are scared of leading/straying from the pack. when u have a million people striving to be alpha.. guess what happens? Afghanistan or russia



thats a hell of a lot better than the third rate "men" (i use that term loosely) in the misc and ish who are fake it till they make it alphas.


we should just have a system where we kinow what some dudes are good at and use that to compliment a civilization.

alpha males are a joke in this day and age. the sociopathic white collar hedge fund manager metrosexuals are at the top of the food chain and they relaly r not something to aspire to (more on this later)


jordan is a fvcking piece of shit of a human being.

sir thomas more and howard roark are more loner types and people who devote themselves to their codes of honor.. they are infinitely more commendable than a run of the mill affliction wearing f*cktard bozo.

even tess of the durbevilles is cooler than them.

well da battle continues..

I would go with a colon over a semicolon since the second half of the sentence is an example of the first part which is acting like a title for the second half.

Semicolons is more for when each part of the sentence can stand on its own.

IllSMak

nice analysis

the way I see it.

Alpha is quite a dynamic term.

It defines either one who is the highest status,
a certain attitude (dominance)


there are traits that are always alpha, and sometimes beta and sometimes alpha.

will to power is always alpha
dominance is always alpha (be it physical, mental)
strength is always alpha
being less reactive than others is always alpha
fearlessness is always alpha
winning is always alpha
controlling your fate is always alpha
being no. 1 is always alpha
leadership is always alpha
being a big d!ck womanizer is always alpha


there is NO mention of talent
artistic ability
creative genius (tesla einstein)
glorification of fatherhood
glorification of a supporting sidekick like robin or daxter who was just as important as the hero in attaining the victory

even though they are very much praiseworthy

the issue with this is... there are sociopaths with no concern for human life that are alpha by definition. which is why we need to define other traits as an exemplar of the UBERMENSCH



thats when neitzsche tackled the situation and brought forth
'the man who would conquer his passions'

thats when u had john from a brave new world feel sick when he had to deal with the times.. and he was seen

thats when u have simon in lord of the flies show his kindness to animals.

arrogance /=/ alpha
kindness /=/ alpha



When someone like Christ was revered or India post-indepndent Grait(love, submission, goodness ot others was a trait of an alpha) now it's not.

We, as an ISH brotherhood need to redefine the values necessary and select the proper leader to embody positive masculinity.

but first, the criteria must take the amorphous liquid and turn in concrete

Why in the blue hell do you have their names if you never had any legitimate interaction with them?

On a serious note though, from personal experience, if they find you attractive AND they are actually considering you, it's not so bad, but whenever you're caught at a crossroads to do or not do this sort of thing, it's better not to. Sure, fine, cultural norms and society say it's always the girl who should be chased, but you don't have to be a persistent creeper kind of guy. One thing you should remember (and I'm working o too) if you're even just simply trying to meet girls, you have to make them think like they want to meet you. You don't have to be the douchebag player, but yeah, some little Jedi mind tricks here and there are good.
