A Warrior has Fallen! Chris Harper-Mercer and the Anglosphere's Urgent Need for Social Reform

Chris Harper-Mercer in classic Incel Pose...

Only kidding - Chris Harper-Mercer was no warrior, by any definition. Shooting down defenceless college students because one is a hardcore incel (involuntary celibate) hardly qualifies someone as Alexander the Great. However, his case provides important insights into this kind of crime and those who commit it.

I went to Wikipedia to find the major spree-killings committed in the major Anglosphere blocs: the UK, the USA and the former Commonwealth (Australia, New Zealand and Canada). The three lists can be seen below, with long-term incel perpetrators marked in bold:

1987 – Micheal Ryan – incel
1996 – Thomas Hamilton – gay paedophile, probable incel
2010 – Derrick Bird – non-incel

1927 – Andrew Kehoe – non incel
1949 – Howard Unruh - incel
1958 – Charles Starkweather non-incel
1966 – Charles Whitman – non-incel
1984 – James huberty – non-incel
1986 – Patrick Sherrill – incel
1989 – Patrick Purdy - incel
1991 - James Pough – non-incel
1991 – George Hennard – incel
1999 – Klebold and Harris –incels
1999 – Larry Ashbrook - incel
1999 – Mark Barton – non-incel
2007 – Heung-Sui Cho - incel
2009 – Michael McLendon – incel
2009 – Nadal Hasan – non-incel
2009 – Liverly Wong – formerly married but probable incel at time of shootings
2009 – George Sodini - incel
2011 – Jared Loughner - incel
2012 – James Holmes - incel
2012 – Adam Lanza – incel
2013 – Alexis Aaron – incel
2013 – John Zawahri - incel
2014 – Elliott Rodger - incel
2015 – Dylann Roof - incel
2015 – Chris Mercer - incel

Australia/NZ/ Canada

1996 – Mark Chahal – non-incel but relationship threatened
1997 – Steve Anderson - incel
2014 – Geoff Hunt – non-incel but relationship threatened       

It is notable that recent UK killers seem to be older men, sexual deviants as opposed to incels. Only one killer, the infamous Michael ‘Rambo’ Ryan, fits the picture of an enraged young incel (he tried to rape a young mother before embarking on his killing spree). The lack of British spree killers in general demonstrates the efficacy of the UK’s anti-gun laws in preventing such crimes – but I digress.

The US figures are especially interesting. Up to the mid-1980s, spree-killings are generally executed by non-incels. After the mid-1980s, incels sweep to the fore and come to dominate the ranks of spree killers. Also, from that time on they are typically younger men in their teens or early twenties. Mass murderers from earlier eras were often married, middle-aged, sometimes even elderly. After the mid 80s, all that changes: spree-killers become young, single and incel, almost overnight.

Commonwealth mass killers seem to follow a similar pattern to their US counterparts, with killings up to the late 1980s typically executed by non-incels. More recent mass killings are typically performed either by incels or males in jeopardized relationships. The latter seem rather more likely to massacre family members than incel mass killers.

The prevailing Manosphere perspective claims that feminism became a powerful force in the late 1960s or early 1970s, with women free to exercise their hypergamous biological prerogatives from that time onward. We would therefore expect to see the first generation of post-feminist Anglosphere males hitting early adulthood around the mid-eighties.  There would be many victimized and alienated incels among this group, if our projections were correct.  And in the US, this is clearly what we observe. Not only that, there are far more spree-killings in general from that time onward, almost two a year. We notice a further escalation in 2007, perhaps reflecting the rise of the Internet and the decline of the legacy media.  Obviously, beyond this date we would be expecting Sexual False Consciousness to wane as young males discuss women’s failings without mediating filters; the old ‘mainstream’ assumption that ‘everyone but me’ is having nightly sex with models and actresses. With this change in place, spree-killing predictably becomes almost a regular event in the United States.

In general, the figures imply that the mainstream media’s fixation with mass killers’ mental health is completely irrelevant, at least in relation to contemporary mass murder. The dominant precipitating factor for multiple murder is incel singleness or being in a jeopardized relationship. Were complete figures available, I have no doubt they would show far more incels among multiple murderers than the general male population; and that involuntary celibacy is now the prime causal factor in Anglo-American spree killings.

However, inceldom is but the tip of the iceberg. History shows that men can endure incel status if they are provided with adequate social or economic compensations (Medieval Catholic clergy being a good example). However, this would require radical restructuring of the Anglosphere – not likely to happen any time soon. Still, implementing the following across the Anglo-American world would restore sufficient status to alienated males to greatly reduce the incidence of incel spree-murders:

  • Make women register for the Draft in the United States: an important symbolic statement showing true commitment to public gender-equality.
  • Legalize prostitution. A reform with countless self-evident benefits to both incel males and female sex workers.
  • Ensure proper punishment for female criminals, especially female sex criminals. At present, males are ten times more likely to receive a custodial sentence for a first offence. If women want equal rights, let them lose their privileges.
  • All anti-male propaganda in the Anglo media must be rooted out. 
  • 'Women only' resources/agencies must be eliminated or matched by similar investment in male resources/agencies.

    If Anglosphere governments were to implement these reforms, many potential incel spree-killers would immediately be stripped of the ideological motivations for their heinous and pointless crimes. However, the Anglosphere’s reflexive neo-puritan misandry will doubtless prevent these simple, direct actions that could save hundreds of lives

    Go figure.

    Act, Mr President...
