I was out with a buddy this weekend, when something very peculiar happened. After seeing a few local bands at a house show, we decided to check out some of the local hipster bars—that’s where it happened. We met a couple of relatively cute girls, and while they seemed friendly at first, I could tell something was off.
After talking to them for a few minutes, it turned out they had some beef with the bartender. I shrugged it off, and we continued to talk—but here’s where shit started to go down. After the bartender came and simply told us that last call was in a few minutes, one of the girls completely lost her shit.
She stood up, poured her drink over the bartender’s head, and proceeded to throw every foul-mouthed slur she knew at him. The other girl literally pushed me backwards as I was sitting down, in an attempt to knock me over. I stood up, and she began smacking me and cursing me out, even though I had nothing to do with this.
What was surprising wasn’t that this had happened, however—what was surprising was everyone’s reaction. Rather than putting these obnoxious women in their place, the bouncer didn’t DARE to lay a hand on them. Rather, he put a hand on me and asked me to leave. This is female privilege.
I was suspended from Twitter recently. The Pope had tweeted out an opinion on how to end war, which is his right to do. I responded by saying that it was a stupid idea, which was also my right to do…but do you know what happened? Twitter shut down my account in response.
Unfortunately, this isn’t that uncommon. Tons of people, mainly conservatives, have been getting banned left and right by Twitter’s biased algorithms and human resources team—all for the terrible crime of having an opinion. Not for sending death threats, not for threatening violence, and not for racial slurs. No. Just for having an opinion.
This is a growing trend across all mainstream platforms. From YouTube to Twitter to Facebook, more and more online video-streaming and content sharing platforms are shutting down innocent users for the horrible, horrible crime of having an opinion that doesn’t kowtow to the mainstream narrative.
Fortunately for us, however, this won’t be a problem much longer. As I’ve discussed before, the age of decentralization is coming—and it isn’t too far away. Soon enough, everything we do will be decentralized, from our social media, to our income, to even our governments. Here’s how.
Anyone who’s watched a political debate in the past few years has no doubt seen pandering politicians throw out the gender pay gap talking point. “Women earn 70 cents for every dollar men earn!” they’ll say.
…and while this is certainly true, the gender pay gap doesn’t exist for the reasons that you think it does. Yes, women earn less than men on average, but the reasons why are many. Sexism may be one such reason, but all of the research shows that it plays a very minimal role in this.
The simple truth about the gender pay gap is that it’s an ideological myth that continues to survive, and refuses to die. It’s thrown around as a way for politicians to gain political support from the left and from women (often correlated), while being able to stand on moral high ground.
When you look at the actual research done on the gender pay gap, men’s wages, women’s wages, and the various factors involved, it becomes abundantly clear that there isn’t some “magical glass ceiling” stopping women from advancing in the work place. This is an ideological talking point, and it’s far more complicated than that. Here’s 4 reasons why.
Lauren Southern, for those of you who don’t know, is a popular YouTube personality, author, and speaker that actively fights modern feminism.
…and, as I’m sure you can tell by her name, she’s a girl. Why does this matter? Well, because when a man speaks out against modern feminism, he’s a loser. A virgin. A creep. A weirdo. He lives in his Mom’s basement.
But when a GIRL speaks out against the perils of college campus feminism, that REALLY pisses off the Left…because people start to question their assumptions.
I’ve been getting a lot of questions on how to red pill women, and whether it’s your girlfriend, your wife, or your family members, Lauren Southern is a phenomenal place to start.
I’ve avoided talking about politics on this blog quite a bit, and there’s good reason why.
My primary concern is helping men become the best version of themselves. I want to help men make more money, get in better shape, have better relationships, and be happier.
Despite this, a large number of my readers are very concerned about the future of the Western world…as am I.
The bad news is that it’s been critically wounded, but the good news is that we can still save it. Here’s how.
If you’ve been reading around in the manosphere for a while, you’ll know that there’s generally two types of guys.
First, there’s the beta males. These are the guys that take orders. They’re the guys that tend to be more submissive, are generally mediocre, and are low in the dominance hierarchy. They also don’t get very many women.
Then, there’s the alpha males. These are the guys in the top 20%—they’re the guys that give orders, excel at what they do, and are the creators of society. They usually get tons of women.
What most people don’t know, however, is that there’s a third type of guy that’s actually on the rise…and he’s known as the sigma male.
Jerry has conquered it all. His inner demons no longer exist; he’s fought them to the death, and has emerged victorious. His entire life is in alignment with his core principles: he believes in the truth, and his whole life embodies it. He is a man of integrity, and a man of principle.
And because of this, the “material” parts of his life are all in abundance. He has ample money, a nice penthouse suite in Miami, a ton of male comrades, and dozens of gorgeous women who desperately want him to settle down for them.
But this almost dream-like feeling is intoxicating; after achieving it, he almost doesn’t want to intermingle with others who have not attained it themselves. He doesn’t want to come back to “normal reality.”
Most men don’t even make it to the initiation phase, so thank your lucky stars if you have (or if you’re on your way). The initiation phase is basically when you actually immerse yourself in the lessons of the manosphere, and begin to fully apply them into your life.
It’s when you hit the gym hard, undergo even further personality transformation, start earning more money, and start getting girls to actually stick around. This is when you start to really reach the pinnacle of self-improvement, and catapult yourself into the top .1% of men.
It is a time of intense struggle, difficult trials, and a whole bunch of shit tests, but the journey molds you into a better man.
Our story begins with Jerry, a lonely, downtrodden young boy. He’s not very confident, he doesn’t work out, he’s never had a serious girlfriend, and he’s generally pretty depressed. But, he’s only 16—he has his whole life ahead of him! Surely he’ll magically find an amazing woman who will love him for who he is, right? Surely all of his problems will just magically fix themselves, right?
Jerry exists in the ordinary world. He believes that men and women are 100% the same, that feelings are more important than facts, and that masculinity is something that’s evil. He’s only been in one relationship, but his girlfriend cheated on him and ended up dumping him for some douchebag. Despite this obvious glimpse into the female psyche, Jerry refuses to accept that women are attracted to confident men.
Jerry doesn’t earn much money and he’s constantly down on himself and the world. He’s a white knight who thinks that being chivalrous will get him laid (“Can I take your coat, m’am?”) and spends most of his days playing World of Warcraft, neglecting his nutrition, and slinking deeper and deeper into depression.
This is what is known as the ordinary world. It’s the plain, mundane, dull world that most men exist in. Then, however, Jerry stumbles upon the manosphere. He’s in for a wild ride.
In his groundbreaking work, The Hero With a Thousand Faces, Joseph Campbell postulates that there exists a “monomyth,” or a common pattern that every single great story follows. Whether it be ancient epics such as Gilgamesh or The Odyssey, modern day movies such as Star Wars or the Matrix, or contemporary novels such as Lord of the Rings, every single great story has a common pattern.
Joseph Campbell dissects this pattern, known as the monomyth, into three phases: Departure, Initiation, and Return. Each phase has a series of tests, or trials, that one must endure, until they emerge with the ultimate reward. I will explain this monomyth in far greater detail, but first I wish to clarify the purpose of this four part article.
I believe that modern man goes through the same phases as described in the monomyth. He finds himself trapped in a misandry-ridden world, shackled by his own brainwashing, and goes through a series of trials which lead to his “awakening.”
The journeys of thousands of men, across all continents, separated by time and space, are surprisingly similar. The point of this article is to outline the various phases which men go through upon “swallowing the red pill,” or realizing that the common social narrative is utter bullshit.
