it's a sign of the times.

more than almost anything, people innately crave an IDENTITY. this is why young people with no direction and few friends often turn to gangs, cults, and terrorist groups -- because they desperately want to BELONG to something.

people also deeply crave reassurance of their own SUPERIORITY and that they are DOING THE RIGHT THING with their lives.

in 2019 America, liberalism is a cult that reassures its members of their MORAL, INTELLECTUAL, and SOCIAL superiority.

and you can easily signal your membership to this ENLIGHTENED GROUP via SOCIAL MEDIA, where numerous others can virtue signal their own memberships to this ELITE CLUB and reassure each other of their SUPERIORITY.

members of this club do not deign to besmirch themselves by mingling with those of lesser status and opposing beliefs, lest they be judged for their company. additionally, they do not want to hear anything that may question the legitimacy of the thought processes they have fully adopted.

No. Been friends with same guys for 25+ years. About 10 of us. All from NYC - all live within an hour or so (Westchester, Brooklyn, Long Island for the guys married with kids). Keep it real- still talk about women, blacks, Arabs etc. as freely as we always did. Nothing is off limits. Helps that it’s a nice mix. Two fire fighters, IT help desk guy, fashion photographer/trust fund baby, teacher, etc. - no one is a pussy. Even the non Trump supporter Democrats in our group are not pussies and have not lost their values or opinions. Feel sorry for other guys my age who are so lost and misguided. I’d like to think we have maintained our own identities through these large culture shifts because of our deep friendship and commitment to maintaining our social circle. I also realize that every single one of us has a strong relationship with our parents and have a strong male influence in our fathers. Also very limited social media use.

Yes

It's tied to female hypergamy, like many ills

Men want or even need to placate women to find and keep a partner. It feminizes them and changes their de facto loyalty from their male friends to women, specifically to the woman they settle down with. So men who once may have been close friends become distrusting of one another, or are often viewed as competition. And I've seen this too many times--adult male "friends" often only stick around to use you as a way to access women and won't hesitate to try to homewreck if they see an opportunity

And of course: fewer shared experiences, little incentive to form bonds when fast easy dopamine hits are right in your pocket, rootlessness making it not worth the investment to build friendships that might just dissolve months later when they get a new job

These are formerly nonpolitical, normal white dudes from middle class to upper middle class families, who think I'm insane for voting Trump. Oddly, their shrew wives and gfs seem less irritated by my politics than they do.

Yeah but I just stopped talking to those fucking losers. The "never let politics influence your relationships" stock line is so dumb and wrong. Why would I ever want to hang out with (white) guys who have become convinced that white people are evil and we need to have open borders? It's just gay and weird and creepy and pathetic

It sucks that you lose so many people to cowardice and brainwash, but if anything it's just more of a reason to stay true to your principles. If nobody grows a spine and tells these guys to stop being such groveling faggots, then there's zero hope for anything ever getting better
