Culture Parasites

A culture parasite is a person or company who sucks away value from a culture for the sole purpose of making money. They decrease both the intellect, class, and even appearance of the population that it’s targeted against. Here are some examples of American culture parasites:

  • Kim Kardashian
  • Apple Computer
  • Gawker
  • Uggs
  • Jersey Shore
  • Chipotle
  • Jinjiang Jiaxing Group Limited (Chinese flip-flop manufacturer that exports to USA)
  • Facebook
  • Naomi Wolf
  • Most media companies

The above has done more than its fair share of contributing to the decline of American women, and therefore your happiness. Chipotle, while providing tasty 2,000 calorie burritos, has helped fatten the population. Apple’s iPhone, which has made it easier to stay connected to the web 24/7, has decreased the attention spans of women. Facebook, while allowing you to stay in touch with old friends, has made women into attention whores. Jersey Shore, while an entertaining program (at least for the first season), has propagated memes that have made women less funny and more vapid. And so on. If you’re in a bar and are annoyed that every woman is glued to her iPhone surfing Facebook, yet you have an iPhone and also use Facebook, who should you blame?

It’s okay to complain about the pussy hell we’ve found ourselves in, but if we go right ahead and support those which have helped create that hell, do we deserve improvement? We all have to hold up a mirror in front of ourselves, myself included, and ask if we’re giving attention or money to the very things that are degrading our society and making us less likely to find a quality woman.

Even if we stop supporting all culture parasites, we may not make much of a dent in our culture’s decline, but at least our demands will be congruent with our character. We will have a right to make those demands and have the expectation that they be met.

One of the reason I read Rooshv is not for his advice on girls, but rather you do write well.

A good writer can write on any subject with eloquence and retain the reader’s interest, even if they disagree with the views.

I think you write well because you read a lot. I do not mean Internet Junk food from sites mentioned above but books.

Non-fiction books convey information, and literature conveys experience. But either way they increase your awareness about life. And awareness increases your ability to act on your free will as well as your writing style.

I am not a cultural elitist at all, but thanks for writing about how women (and men)in the USA gravitate towards the lowest denominator culturally, and are not even aware of it.

So, capitalism is the biggest culture parasite of all?

Not all culture parasites are created equal.

Like I’d put Kim K, Gawker, and Naomi Wolf on a different level than Apple, Facebook and Jinjiang.

The first group actively promotes shitty memes, whereas the latter just provides a platform.

I guess there are two different levels of cultural parasitism.

No capitalism is not the parasite. Consumerism and trying to keep up with the Jones is. Capitalist take advantage of it but don’t force anyone to partake in it. And it can be directly correlated to the disposable society we have become.

Let me add society is akin to my cousin. He has a BMW, a ZX-14, lots of nice toys but he isn’t content. His problem is instead of enjoying the technical and mechanical aspects and what makes those things cool and in turn that being a factor for purchasing them, he went for merely the status of owning them. Hence why the bike is rarely ridden and the BWM is slowly falling apart.

Yeah , Naomi Wolf, author of “The End Of America: A Letter of Warning to Young Patriot” … she really destroyed the culture with that book — an excellent primer about creeping fascism in America.

Naomi Wolf is ignorant about many things (feminism in particular), but in posting this you show that you’re not too many steps above her.

be careful Roosh. You are no treading on thin ice and the wrath of the TPTB will definitely come after you if you continue this analysis. Take a look at the majority of your list

Kim Kardashian – who produces the shows and keeps it on the air ?

Jersey Shore – who produces it and keeps it on the air ?
Chipotle

Facebook – who owns it and runs it ?
Naomi Wolf – self explanatory
Most media companies – who owns them and runs them ?

Let me also add that Naomi Wolf is part of the group of journalists suing the government over the illegality of the NDAA (indefinite detention bill).

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2012/mar/28/helping-chris-hedges-lawsuit-ndaa

Naomi Wolf (author of “The End of America”) joined Chris Hedges (author of “War is A Force that Gives us Meaning” and “American Fascists”) in the lawsuit, with backing support from Glenn Greenwald (Constitutional Scholar for Salon.com) in this anti-NDAA lawsuit.

Yeah, suing the government over illegal detention / torture/ rendition is such a real destruction of the culture. We need to go back to old-fashioned values — values like speaking ignorantly about topics one has not sufficiently investigated.

Fuck the poisonous ideology that is feminism — but also fuck general ignorance of the type found in this article — such as categorically denouncing an author without reading their works.

Chipotle is by far one of the better fast food joints out there. There’s one right in front of my gym, and thankfully so because it’s one of the few places I can go and get a decent 500 calorie meal with a balanced nutrient ratio that actually fills me up (two crispy chicken tacos and a side of pinto beans).

BK, McDonalds, Wendy’s, KFC….those are the real scourge on society.

I haven’t found facebook and phones to be much of a barrier in my dating life. It’s actually helped me a bunch of times. It’s just a new tool that you have to adapt to and if you just complain about the tool adapting, your falling behind like an old man.

You might as wel add google to your list, they make smartphones cheap!

It has nothing to be with being a fan of Chipotle. Rather, your claim about “2,000 calorie burritos” is outright false.

If you want to go after fast food places for fattening the population, that does make sense, but Chipotle is a very poor example.

I’ve only stayed on Facebook since I live overseas. However, I am getting closer to quitting it. It really does make me cringe. As I walked a long a try hard street in my hometown I walked past 5 girls typing furiously on their phones. All of them on Facebook. I really struggle to understand how hours on this site is good for society? I rarely witness it being used in a productive way. It’s 90% an attention seeking platform.

Chipotle is “Mexican food” for people that live in places with no good Mexican food. Or don’t know what Mexican food is.

Basically, it’s for the strip mall crowd.

No one goes to Chipotle in San Diego and I would assume no one goes there in Texas as well.

Agreed with above. Not sure why you’d include Chipotle. As far as fast food is concerned surely McDonalds or KFC are far worthier of condemnation. At least at Chipotle you can get a healthy option like a burrito bowl w/out rice.

this is your worst post in a really really long time.

chiptole is a pretty awful example of destructive american fast food. though worth about 2 meals in calories, the ingredients in a chipotle burrito are fairly solid..all unprocessed except for the meat. if anything it’s popularity signals a turn for the better in the american diet. on the other hand, who cares.

The minute we blame “capitalism” we kick off a holy war that seems to go nowhere, but always led there by market fundamentalists volunteering to go down defending a capitalist ideal that exists nowhere in the real world, not unlike their religious counterparts.

Most will agree that market-based economics are the most favorable for growing prosperity and creating a basis for fairly distributing the fruits of prosperity. That is: the left agrees on this, so does the right. The left from the european social democrats thru american democrats thru moderate republicans.

Only the far left and far right believe in faerie tales (central planning that is agile and fair or capitalism, anywhere, ever).

We need market economies because we have no better model. We need to distribute prosperity fairly because doing so grows economies, averts revolutions and generally is a just thing all around.

Too bad the words are so corrupted, but say capitalism and you may as well say love, it is in the eye of the beholder and exists on specious merit anyway.

Europe is a market economy (it is not socialist republifreaks). So is the US. Neither are capitalist but yes, a skewed distribution of prosperity that magnifies status differences unfairly and takes hypergamy to hyperdrive … that is a real problem for both the socially minded leftist and traditionalist alike.

yea gotta say roosh was way off here, ipods and facebook arent inherently bad, all depends on how you use them, chipotle is by far one of the healthier chain restaurants out there, and the excuse that if you “load up the burrito, get chips and a soda” it puts it well over 1000 calories is a pretty unnecessary statement since the only thing wrong with that meal is the chips and soda, which you could get anywhere, not chipotles fault, kim kardashian is fuckin beautiful, yes shes dumb, but its even dumber american bitches idolizing her that is the problem, you’re pretty spot on about uggs and jersey shore tho haha fuck that shit

The American Woman and Male has faced a rapid declination because of the above mentioned, most men are followers so they will do whatever women do to try and ‘fit in’…

It’s no secret that over 80% of TV advertisements are geared towards women, the American Woman is the most self absorbed creature on Earth.

Fascinating how people have a laser focus on their prized Fast Food instead of the rest of the article.

Tortilla, Rice, Steak, Tomato Salsa and Cheese = 730 Calories

Tortilla Chips
570 Calories

Regular Size 32 oz Coke
310 Calories

You’re over 1,600 Calories IN ONE SINGLE MEAL…

Facebook has been the worst thing ever invented for girls. Now, every girl thinks they are some kind of celebrity or that they have profound wisdom to share with their 1000 “friends.” Totally idiotic.

The worst thing about Facebook is that every girl, whether they are ugly/fat or actually attractive has 100’s of guys ready to kiss their ass and put pussy on a pedestal 24 hours a day. It is truly sickening.

…hey go easy on Chipotle bro, they have a higher caliber of female clientele than your average fast food joint, at least where I live. Plus with their setup you can work them while waiting in line.

……not to mention there burritos are fucking good. I simply limit myself to a couple times a month and have no worries.

JM

the other thing worth mentioning about chipotle is that the chips and soda are about another 5 dollars. you have to really be in the mood to stuff your face if to go down that route. If you just go for the burrito and a water, you get 730 decently wholesome calories. If you have 3 meals a day that average that many calories, you get 2190 for the day. 2000 is the recommendation for an active adult male typically. So if you just have a light breakfast there’s literally no problem with it.

roosh just picked chipotle because he wanted to critique a chain beloved by proles and swpls alike.

While I agree with many of these, especially Kim K., are you really going to lump things like Apple in with her just based on the iPhone? What about the contributions the company makes to tech in general? Some of these contributions have significantly contributed to education, science and other socially worthwhile endeavors. Is your philosophy so focused on the worthlessness of American women that you forget there is a whole other world out there?

C’mon, Roosh! Don’t compile lists like this without including the absolute #1 parasite, the government. Get rid of those guys (without replacing them with similar, or for that matter anyone), and the institution of parasitism itself becomes fiendishly hard to sustain. They are the enabler, the promoters, and the profiteers of a degenerate culture of parasitism. Get rid of them already!

Actually blackberry started it all with there phones. Apple made them better no doubt but sending texts and emails while on a date was being done long before the iPhone.

Also dating sites. Are a massive contributor to the inflated egos of American women. They get 100’s of emails from guys wanting to screw them and they take that as I must be Attractive look at all the attention I get.

Its not the parasites, its the culture ITSELF.
CULT ure.
The CULT of possesions. THe culture based on fear, materialism, fake terror paranoia.

The culture of cheap entertainment without any basic knowledge about nutrition, health, men-women affairs.
On the other hand America was home to many wonderful people like: Jimmy Hendrix, Osho, the whole Hippie culture, eckhardt tolle, deepak chopra, bashar, Slash, albert einstein, malcolm X, Wilhelm Reich…
America is huge, diverse country, with a lot of potential.
Just notice how everything went down the drain right after 9/11.

Notice another incredible difference between USA and France. Both belong to western culture, facebook, shopping, parties all that stuff. But how they differ in the Culture of Eating!!
French girls- slim, sexy, love to flirt, funny, do i mention french kisses?
American girls- you know wink
Why such immense difference? The big reason: EATING and DRINKING. How they eat and how they drink. French taste food…. chew.. slowly. Enjoy it. Celebrate it. Smell wine, cheeses, herbs. Americans? eat like pigs. I’m sorry. Roosh – you could write a long article about this issue.

How can you possibly blame Apple for how its customers use its products? That’s absurd. I use my iPad to read your site. I check your Twitter feed on my iPhone. I’m sure many do the same.

Apple is the most respected business in America and for good reason. They make choice products. They are consistently raising the standards for many industries. Apple is one of the few companies America can still be proud of. It stuns me sometimes how ignorant you can be about things like this. But maybe you’re just trolling…

And Apple Inc. hasn’t been called Apple Computer for some time, by the way. Your opinion of a company’s operations and impact on the world can’t be all that reliable when you don’t even know its proper name. Just sayin’.

Actually the biggest cultural parasite are bloggers.

Pretty much all one needs is an email address, word press and a fourth grade mastery of the English language to proclaim him/herself an authority. It’s the lowest common denominator of human communication and the highest form of narcissism. Many even claim to be bloggers, as a verb, as in their primary profession or art form. It’s degrading to all social, intellectual and basic human sensibilities.

It’s not as bad as writing ebooks and then calling oneself an author. Oh wait…

Now you KNOW you can go around making fun of Chipotle and Apple without getting some blowback. smile

Anyway, your boy VK had an interesting post too. Wanted to comment on it, but he locked it down too soon (it had the idiots crawling out of the woodwork.)

But basically wanted to say that the reason there’s so much game/racist crossover is because they both recruit from the same pool – loser men.

Anyway, I disagree that any of the stuff in your list comprises “culture parasites” of any kind. It’s stuff I don’t care a whole lot for (though I love me a Chipotle burrito on occasion), it’s not like it’s somehow stunting the intellectual potential of geniuses or anything. They are harmless distractions.

A hot chick can be on Facebook via her iPhone talking about Kim Kardashian while eating a Chipotle burrito…and you wouldn’t have a problem with it. Admit it! smile
