- Lots of money does not mean a man will be invested in society. If you check out the blogs I linked to, an idea that comes up a lot wrt Soldini is how men are increasingly not invested in society. In Soldini’s case this is despite having a very high paying job and a net worth of $250,000. In other words, men you would expect to be invested if not highly invested in society are not. I can say that is true of myself as well. While I’m not going to reveal my net worth here, I also have a high paying job and have saved/invested plenty of money. Has it made me invested in society? Absolutely not because this is the ultimate case of, “no good deed goes unpunished”.
- Soldini hadn’t had a girlfriend for about 25 years. There is no reason why this makes sense on the surface (so we need to dig deeper). I already covered his money. Take a look at what he looks like. Before he cracked he probably was a decent enough guy. Plenty of women should have wanted him since he had plenty going for him even compared to most men. Those of you who have read enough of my writings know that I’m 31 and that I have never had a girlfriend and never had any women interested in me. Since I started posting under this account, I have gotten lots of emails from men in the same and similar situations. (Even before that I had talked to plenty of men in similar situations as well.) There are two types of situation I have encountered. The first is like me, never had a girlfriend ever in their lives. The second is they had a girlfriend/sex several years ago but not now. That story typically goes something like this: When they were poor(er), they had no trouble finding women who were interested in them. However, now that they make $70K, $80K, $90K, or more they can’t find any women interested in them to save their souls. On the surface this makes no sense. There are theories, but the fact is this is a real phenomenon and it seems like this describes Soldini.
We will see more of this type of thing in the future. As more men realize that all of the work they have done is meaningless because the social contract between men and women is broken, a few will crack. I also anticipate this will lead to more demonization of upper-middle class and lower-upper class men. Most men in this situation aren’t going to crack, but they are going to be angry and want to do something about it. Think about this. If a bunch of men like Soldini who had lots of money got together imagine what they could accomplish.
