Alpha Up! 1st Edition 8/30/13

Aug 30, 2013

Welcome to our first edition of Alpha Up!, Puerarchy’s own advice column for our Red Pill readers. If you’ve read my previous blog you’ll know I like to get straight to the point. On that note…    Question #1  “My greetings to you, and to all the red pill minded individuals out there. I have been an avid follower of the red pill and this newly formed ‘Puerarchy’ site. I would highly appreciate it if you answer my question. So here it goes, I have a close friend of mine that is turning Beta (maybe even Gamma), he used to be a text book Alpha until he met the girl he’s with right now. They’ve been together for almost two years, and I have observed their interactions for quite a while. She’s submissive at times, compulsive more often, and borderline batshit crazy on occasion. I tried to break it down to him in the form of advice but he got angry and didn’t want me speaking about it, it’s like he lives in denial. After a month or so from my initial attempt to bring him back to planet Earth, the rest of our group tried to talk to him about this, because it was going out of hand and they were really concerned about his well-being. I was glad to see that the rest of the guys had his back and even more glad that I wasn’t the only one seeing the damage that’s being done to him. In the past two years they have been seeing each other EVERY single day, at her request of course. She is choking the life out of him. She calls/texts all the time when she’s not with him, and she sleeps over almost every night (tampons in the bathroom and all that good stuff), she’s obsessed with him to a sickening degree, she declares that he’s her almighty God (I have heard this). Even when it’s a guys night out, all the guys including myself show up alone, except him, he drags her around everywhere! We’d be like 7-8 guys and her just because he drags her along to the fucking UFC fight (or she manipulates him to bring her) and this...

Chivalry is a Beta Move, Right?

Chivalry is a Beta Move, Right?

Aug 23, 2013

Chivalry. We’re all aware of the basic idea, opening a door for a girl, letting her exit the elevator first, pulling out her chair, etcetera… Now as far as I’m aware, this is the general consensus within the Manosphere: Chivalry is about as Beta as you get. No. It’s worse than Beta…. It’s Omega. Chivalry is what “nice guys” do. And we all know what happens to… “nice guys”. I’m here to dispel this theory. Or at least, offer a counter point of view. The Origin of Chivalry Contrary to popular belief, Chivalry is not about being every woman on earth’s personal manservant. Well, it wasn’t, at least. As Ian Ironwood discussed in this excellent article; The Knights of Chivalry and The Vows of Knighthood were mostly about honour, combat, glory, respect, authority, duty, responsibility, and honesty. So Chivalry is without a doubt a manly thing. One of the most famous examples of Chivalry is to not stab someone in the back. They should be facing you, sword drawn. I’m fairly confident this is meant both physically and metaphorically. Problem is, the meaning today has been boiled down to just the one code: To respect the honour of women. A quick note to the feminists who believe that that rule was born from times when women were assumed to be “weak and defenceless”: To protect the weak and defenceless To give succour to widows and orphans To fight for the welfare of all To respect the honour of women. Notice that, “To protect the weak and defenseless”, and “To respect the honour of women”. Are two different rules. Chivalry In Society Look carefully at how this is written: To respect the honour of women. “Enhance,” says the main protagonist to the tech-guy in NCIS. To respect women’s honour. “Enhance,” he says again, adjusting his dark sunglasses. To respect honourable women. “Now invert it horizontally.” You don’t have to be chivalrous to bitches. You can then extend this to, “You don’t have to be chivalrous to girls you don’t know.” Hence doing away with one of the problem Dalrock brought up in this very sarcastically written article on the topic. This is the “all men...

Losing Time

Losing Time

Aug 22, 2013

I’ve been taking the Red Pill for about three years now, and the most common lament I hear coming from fellow Red Pillers is this: “I only wish I’d discovered this stuff sooner. Imagine where I would be now if I’d taken the Red Pill x years ago.” If there’s one sentiment that most (if not all) Red Pillers can sympathize with, it’s this one. Wasted time feels like the worst kind of loss. Time is the most precious resource. It is the one and only thing which, once spent, cannot be replenished. Men are creatures of drive, purpose, and ambition. We pride ourselves on our accomplishments – waste is the bane of our lives, and we seek to stamp it out wherever we can find it. So it’s easy – beguiling even – to look with regret and sorrow at the Blue Pill years of your life, spent toiling in ignorance, driven by imperatives and agendas that were not entirely your own. And for what? Nothing? I disagree. And here’s why: Because you can’t know how things might have turned out otherwise. Let’s face it: the Red Pill is a bitter pill. It makes no apologizes about the brutish, opportunistic nature of sexual and social politics. For anyone coming from years of indoctrination in pleasant lies, it can seem unreal and pessimistic. It takes PAIN to make the Red Pill seem real. If there’s one thing I know for certain, it’s that pain is a necessary component of the learning process. A mistake is not truly a mistake, and a lesson not truly learned, unless your error has harmed you in some significant way to make the lesson stick. Imagine if you had found the Red Pill too early. Imagine if you had read about Red Pill ideas before the prolonged, soul-flaying tedium or the singular, heart-shattering betrayal that has now led you to it? Would you you still have accepted it? My guess is, probably not. You might have formed a negative preconception about the Red Pill in that moment. You could have dismissed it as “extremist, misogynist nonsense”, and inoculated yourself against its lessons later when you finally sustained the injury...

A Simple Workout to Get You Started

A Simple Workout to Get You Started

Aug 21, 2013

Resistance training is probably one of the best habits one can pick up. Its positive effects are too numerous to mention here, but rest assured that the development of a strong and healthy body is beneficial to your life in just about every aspect that matters. The training itself is quite simple. You load up a barbell with weights and you move it up and down with your body. The hardest part, in my opinion, is overcoming resistance not to gravity, but to the act of integrating resistance training into your life. People often put up various mental blocks that keep them from getting into a fitness grove. For some, learning a wide array of unfamiliar movements is a daunting and unappealing task. For others, the thought of allocating an hour and a half (plus transit and shower time) to working out just doesn’t seem practical. What I am about to propose to you is a dead-simple, minimalist routine that can be completed in less than 45 minutes, 30 if you hustle. The Workout: Deadlift: 3 sets of 5 repetitions Standing Overhead Press: 3 sets of 5 repetitions Perform this routine 3 days per week on non-consecutive days (e.g., Monday-Wednesday-Friday) Start off with a weight you can comfortably do 1 set of 10 repetitions with. Focus on perfect form. It’s okay if your form isn’t perfect (spoiler: it never will be) but perfection should be your aim. Rest between sets as long as you feel you need to complete the next set of repetitions. Add 5 lbs to your lifts after each successfully completed session.   The Reasoning: The deadlift and the overhead press are approximations of two fundamental movements: picking something up off the ground and pushing something up over your head. Together, they will give you great functional strength and work just about every major muscle group from head to toe.  If you were to apply Pareto’s law to the weight lifting, this author believes that these two lifts are all that would remain. There is no need for extraneous ab work. Your core will be worked plenty by simply keeping your torso rigid while executing these lifts. Some of you may...
