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)...

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...

The Masculine Fantasy

The Masculine Fantasy

Jul 9, 2013

James Bond. Tony Soprano. Sherlock Holmes. Batman. Captain Kirk. John Wayne. Jason Bourne. Indiana Jones. These names are synonymous with one ideal, a “fantasy” of masculinity that is thought to be unreachable. A fictitious icon that has the confidence and competency to win in any situation. A hyper masculine archetype that always gets the girl. Men have been drawn to these characters for generations because they reflect what we all want, but are no longer taught how to achieve. Through the puerarchy we are going to share this seemingly lost knowledge. The knowledge of what it takes to embrace that testosterone coursing through your veins and put it to work for you – and only you. No longer will we be a workhorse for anyone else. No longer will we put up with ridiculous demands and childish temper tantrums. We will pursue the Masculine Fantasy and make it a reality. Why shouldn’t we succeed and spend our time and money as we please? Why shouldn’t we always get the girl instead of being relegated to monogamy or worse? As this knowledge spreads like wildfire we are only going to see more and more men opt out of the whirling cogs of our post-feminist society and join us in the pursuit of the Masculine Reality. Smoke cigars, ride motorcycles, go out with 3 women in a day, shoot guns, lift heavy things at odd hours, jump out of a plane, or spend your disposable income on something “dumb.” It doesn’t matter anymore. Maybe we’ll wear tuxedos, or maybe we’ll wear tuxedo t-shirts but one thing is for certain – no woman is going to pick out our clothes for us. No woman is going to nag us if we stay out all night. No woman is going to have any significant power over us because she knows she will be replaced immediately. The Masculine Reality dictates that we do as we desire and society be damned. Your life is in your hands and you are beholden to no one. With a brotherhood of puerarchs at your back you will be armed with the information and accountability to live life however you see fit. We’ll keep...
