    He's in that youtube sphere alongside Jordan Peterson, those Manosphere channels, etc. I never bought into the whole mindset because by the time I encountered it, a million Redditors and YouTubers were telling me I was going to become a crazed misogynistic neo nazi.

    Pretty much. While it's not so much about Jordan or Stefan "converting" you with clever words, it's more to do with a gradual isolation into a world and mindset that is often designed to exasperate your sense of hope. Gaming-talk is often a hook, then "relatable" gripes about how difficult girls are to impress, followed by all sorts of explanations, where misogyny, antisemitism etc. often take the stage.

    I am personally bothered by the tone of many of them - Stefan in particular has this... home-tutoring classroom sort of approach and tone, where it is so clear to me, that he is knowingly and deliberately communicating his message to children.

    They have a way of pulling you into it with words, without explicitly telling you anything. Then once you've entered their circle it's kinda hard to leave. I just watch those kinds of videos just to see the way they word things and the tactics they use.

    As for the whole neo nazi thing, you could be the most racist, most batshit insane neo-nazi ever, and completely dedicated to stomping my race into the ground, and I'll listen to you and hear you out. But the moment I see an anime girl wearing a SS Waffen uniform, I stop taking you seriously and tune you out. It frustrates me.
