Being alpha doesn’t necessarily mean being popular

Being alpha doesn’t necessarily mean being popular

Nov 4, 2013

Can you be an alpha without leading  or otherwise being the center of a social group? The answer is a definitive yes. A lot of people on /r/theredpill, especially the newer (and younger sounding) users tend to think that if they’re not constantly the center of attention then they’re not alpha. This is nothing but narcissism manifesting itself as weakness. It’s such a black and white view and it buys into the overarching primitively sung narrative by the would-be detractors of red philosophy that the red pill is about turning chimpanzees into silverback gorillas who can beat their chests the loudest and transform into vagina slaying men of the jungle as if we’re all still the hairy neanderthal subjects of an ancient wilderness; just like the silver tinge to the silverback gorillas coat, there are many shades of grey, fuck it, probably as many as 50 shades of grey when it comes to “being alpha.” Sometimes even when someone’s got more social power within a group than you they don’t necessarily flaunt it by making a grandiose show or otherwise hitting you over the head with the fact, groups like this are enjoyable despite your lack of absolute hegemony over them. You may not be the top dog in this specific circle but you’re not having someone try to shit on your ego with their higher status by conducting elaborate over the top egotistical drawn out displays which scream “look at me, I’m so high value” in a needy attempt to defend the perception that they’re the boss, EG: the muscly guy who just won’t stop flexing his bicep, kissing it and then trying to make eye contact… not because he’s gay and he’s into you, but simply just because he is a cunt. So what happens when someone is a dick and has the edge in a peer group over you, as to say in the pecking order they’re higher up than you are? My advice is very simple – quit that social circle. Hanging around someone who is a dick (not for banter and to elevate the group but to feed their ego with your misery via the process of emotional vampirism)...

Poll Analysis & The Third Option

Poll Analysis & The Third Option

Sep 16, 2013

As you may be aware, I conducted a poll of our readers’ religious and political affiliations. Honestly for no good reason – I was just curious. The results have been interesting. However, I must concede this is not necessarily an accurate representation of the Manosphere. First off only people who have been to this site would have voted; which is most likely, exclusively, a portion of TheRedPill subreddit. Secondly it was only posted at the end of two of my articles: Chivalry Is A Beta Move, Right? and How Feminism Has Manipulated The English Language & The Concept of Equality. Meaning only people interested in those titles would have clicked and voted. But regardless, we got over 220 participants – so we’re good to go.   I should note, initially there was no “Atheist” option, silly me. Once added the numbers jumped, so that’s what I put the 8% of “Other” down to. Also, the Atheists might have chosen Agnostic as second-best. Regardless, the Atheists and Agnostics added together make up about 50% of the vote. Second largest is a clear, precedented Christian representation; given the state of the Church this is pleasing. In addition the Catholics are at 4%. Lastly, we’ve got a few Jews, Buddhists, and Islamics; so we can claim “cultural indifference”. And to the dude who pointed out that the Evolution is a scientific theory not a religious belief… I know it just, it just works easier sticking in that group.   The first thing to note is there is a very clear majority of Libertarians. This is surprising and unsurprising at the same time. I kind of knew there would be an over-representation of them, but I didn’t think they would get 50% of the vote. But back to these guys in a second. Secondly, it’s interesting to note that there is a fairly even spread of Democratic Left & Democratic Right. At 12% and 16% the conservatives have the lead; unsurprising as though as when I think feminism, I think Progressives. Nevertheless it’s good we’ve got a few Left Wing brethren so that we’re not written off as crazy cracker right wing extremist misogynists. Good to see we’ve...

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...

Threatpoint created the Puerarchy

Threatpoint created the Puerarchy

Jul 22, 2013

I believe it was Dalrock who coined the term “threatpoint” regarding marriage and divorce reform in the West over the past 40 years. He was referring to the restructuring of marriage, giving more power to person who wants out, and reducing the power previously held by the partner interested in preserving the marriage: They aren’t under any illusions;  divorce reform is all about redistributing power from the spouse who wants to honor the marriage vows to the spouse who doesn’t.  This is one of the best kept open secrets I’ve ever encountered.   Also, don’t be confused by the gender neutral terms;  women are overwhelmingly the ones who don’t want to honor the marriage vows.  This is confirmed by the academic study“These Boots Are Made for Walking”:  Why Most Divorce Filers Are Women and the data on the age of wife at the time of divorce. Putting this together, divorce reform is all about redistributing power from the husband who wants to honor the marriage vows to the wife who doesn’t. This threatpoint gives leverage to women in a marriage, giving her unilateral control over the future of the commitment. Does she want out? She gets a payday. He will avoid this (that is, he will try to maintain the marriage) at all costs, hopefully for reasons such as love, commitment, and loyalty… but the risk of financial ruin certainly cannot be overlooked. And this, ladies and gentlemen, meant that marriage was now at the emotional whim of women. There are books upon books about the history of marriage. Armchair theorists (such as myself) can only speculate about the economics of religion and the institution of marriage. It’s hard to know what was going through our ancestors’ minds, if anything at all. One thing is certain, however: marriage was an effective control on hypergamy. For those of you just joining us, hypergamy is the tendency for women to mate with the highest status male available. One of the problems this raises is that built into the psychology of women inherent in hypergamy is their need to constantly test (shit-test) their mates to ensure they are up to snuff, and prepare for jumping to another branch if a mate of...
