(Context: A new movie is coming out called “Cuck”. Yes, it is real. Apparently it tries to paint the “alt-right” – people who call leftists & centrists & civnats “cucks” – in a bad light, as dangerous etc. Obviously the word “cuck” hit a nerve with them and this is an attempt to do damage control and weaken the power of the word.)
THEY HAVE NO ANSWER FOR THE WORD “CUCK”. WHY? BECAUSE IT COMMUNICATES THE CONCEPT OF RECIPROCITY IN ONE EMOTION-LADEN, DISGUST-INDUCING WORD
The best they can do is “cucks are good, non-cucks are bad and dangerous.”
Essentially, “Be a cuck because otherwise you’re bad.”
Their problem is, no one wants to be a cuck. The very concept of it disgusts people. It implies the worst form of weakness. Any man that is cuckolded has experienced one of the worst events possible in a man’s life.
Extremely difficult or impossible to spin as a positive.
The word is also powerful because it carries within it the concept/assumption that something valuable and sacred is being destroyed. It hits the civnats/middle between the eyes with “you are losing something priceless because you’re trying to be nice”. And the Left doesn’t know what to do with it because all their lying, their whole narrative, consists of pretending that they impose no costs on anything or anyone, and that anyone who opposes them is just being mean and unreasonable. Yet it is inherently reasonable to oppose being cucked.
Calling someone a cuck means “you are a disgusting weak loser who is passively accepting or encouraging the destruction of something valuable, precious and sacred (accepting the imposition of costs).” The pairing of the (accurate) accusation of causing destruction with triggering the disgust reaction is very powerful.
Arguing with the left will not defeat them, but discourse can and does affect others who are willing to learn. Our word “cuck” is kind of the equivalent of their word “racist”, the difference being the word cuck carries much more truth content, and thus will gain efficacy over time, in contrast to the word “racist” which loses efficacy over time.
