The Best of The Rational Male – Year 4

Milestones-Photo

Four years ago on August 19th I finally took some SoSuave friends’ advice, stopped procrastinating and began organizing and building upon about 9 years worth of writing I had done on that forum and in my university work. Back then all I wanted to do was flesh out the forum posts I thought might make for some interesting reading. I had so many members and newly unplugged friends ask me to collect all of these essays in one place I had to make some sort of effort.

Four years later I think I’ve moved beyond just the core Red Pill ideas I had then. I don’t keep a personal journal. I do have a small notebook I write ideas into as they hit me, but my only way of reviewing my writing is looking back through these notes and searching back through 4 years of writing here. Even if I’m just going back through the previous year’s work it’s an interesting review of where my life was at as well as where the manosphere in general was too.

Even if you’re just peripherally aware of the events in the sphere you know that things have been more than a bit unsettled for the past 5 months. I really dislike involving myself in the manosphere’s PR, but as one of the primary writers (one of the three ‘R’s as it were) I’m sometimes compelled to do so. I would much rather be writing about what I do than writing about the ‘sphere itself. I don’t do this for a living, nor do I have any plans to ever make it my vocation. I enjoy the freedom of being able to focus on issues I believe are important to making men Red Pill aware unencumbered by any concern about how my writing  might affect revenue generated by web stats or advertising.

As of today I have 452 published posts. My posting has gone up a bit more this year to 1-2 per week. I’m getting a bit more comfortable with this schedule as it allows me to craft a post over the course of a week and give more thought (and counterthought) to what I’m mulling in my head. I like doing the weekend discussion questions too so I’ll be upping these for the weekenders here in the coming year.

2015_stats

In 4 years the view traffic is fast approaching the 13 million mark. My monthly views are averaging almost half a million now. I might be a bit off, but I think this is pretty impressive for a Red Pill blog that doesn’t advertise and has never been monetized. I have a stake in a couple of liquor brands that would kill for half of this traffic.

I’ve been a bit more public in the last few months. Since the last ‘Best Of’ post I’ve done 5 interviews, and in a couple of weeks I’ll be making my first in-person appearance at the Man in Demand conference in Las Vegas. I’ve got some high hopes for this event, but I should state for the record that it’s the first and only appearance I’ll be making for at least a year. I have no plans of ‘going public’ in the foreseeable future.

Obviously I think the best thing about the past years was publishing the second book Preventive Medicine. I now own the trademark for The Rational Male (just to be official and protected) and I do have plans for a 3rd installment of The Rational Male series, but this wont be until Q4 of 2016 at the earliest. I should also say that I’ve been entertaining the idea of writing what I call Red Pill fiction. Not to go into too much detail, but I’m toying with the idea of writing some down to earth, gritty fiction that’s firmly rooted in a Red Pill perspective.

Beyond all this, Sam Botta has just recently finished the audio and editing of the first book in Audible format. The plan is to have it available by mid-September, but I’ll be announcing it officially when it’s available.

The following are links to the posts I felt had the most relevance and impact for the year. The comment volume has increase exponentially this year which I’m very happy about. Open, unmoderated, discussion has always been the strength of this blog and it’s encouraging to see the interaction stepped up this year.

I have a love-hate kind of feeling with the Best Of posts. I want to highlight what I think were great, but I do so at the risk of marginalizing the posts I think had great merit, but just didn’t make the cut. These selections aren’t necessarily the most popular or the most commented on, but I thought they deserved some consideration as the most significant (several were even included in Preventive Medicine).

This *is* the RP blog, free of political and religous agendas, distilled to perfection (I bet the same can be told about products under the liquor brands he has stakes in). I rember when I first found it something like 3y ago: I was going through some issues with a girl, playing to all the “understanding guy” stereotypes. I always felt it to be “wrong” somehow, saying to myself at times “this not how it is supposed to happen”, felling a splinter in my head for every supplicating gesture i made. Then one day, after a particulary strange encounter with… Read more »

@ Rollo, I really appreciate that someone, anyone has taken the time to write the things you’ve written. A few years ago I would have dreamed to be able to connect such dots in a helpful and rational way as is done here, if only to have laid out such arguments so astutely and felt proud to have done so. If there’s anything I’ve learned from reading, it’s that I had absolutely no hope of doing so, all from lack of the perspective necessary to understand what is conveyed here. It’s your expressed perspective that is so valuable, if only… Read more »

Congratulations on Year 4. Along with the progress on the blog, the progress noted in the comment section from various readers (myself included, heh heh heh) is very exciting. Sex/women/relationship problems were practically the singular driving force behind my history with suicide attempts. After a breaking point hardly a week ago where I’d tried again, I had a breakthrough. And that breakthrough was almost completely based on insights I’ve gotten from this blog. It’s been a rough road. But things are looking up, and RM has been one of the only things that’s truly helped me in my life. Being… Read more »

Nice work. I’m handing out this information (books or links to sites) to younger men as I encounter them (or as they approach me for advice on women).

Rollo – This blog helped me internalize and actualize Red Pill truths in my life in real ways rather than yammering about them. At a more meta level, it’s helped me embrace my own masculinity and end the war with myself that raged inside of me for my whole life, a war that all men raised and living in this FI soaked world have inside of them. Whether it’s sex drive, dominance, aggression, a predilection to action or driving myself to succeed, I no longer feel conflicted about these impulses. I’ve also rid myself of the pedestalizing of women, which… Read more »

@SJF It’s a usage coined by YaReally recently. He used it as a way to ridicule Roosh followers who were being highfalutin melodramatic about the pushback he was getting. They were acting like they were the heroes in a fantasy movie fighting bravely against evil, he quoted them as saying things like ‘whatever shall come, know, roosh, that we stand beside you.’ It was pretty funny. So basically, be real here. Accept the world as it is and yourself as you are – strong but limited. Avoid a narcissistic perspective where the world is a movie and you’re the hero.… Read more »

I think the Roosh episode was very valuable. It was courageous — I would never be able to put myself out there like he did. Now there are two sides to this debate. In however ugly a fashion, Roosh put the ‘sphere in the public eye. No matter what, we won’t make any progress until that happens. We’ll see where this all goes next.

Lucien
Guest
Lucien

To add — we have to build on the beginnings of that episode. The Roosh thing turned out to be brilliant, honestly. Perhaps not through any special wisdom, but through what we learned as a result. There is a way to insert the ‘sphere into the public political discussion. By triggering an extreme and violent reaction from feminists, he raised a legitimate question about the limits of free speech, an issue that is already heavily politicized and deeply unsettled. Many, many mainstream conservatives are already on heightened alert for leftist overreaction aimed at suppressing unwanted speech. So episodes like this… Read more »

@Lucien – Fuck Roosh. He’s a racist, a pseudo-intellectual and an loser. It would be great if we could proceed as though he’s yesterday’s news. His deal is simple. He painted himself into a corner personally and professionally. Any sentient man could have told him that running your entire life around fucking Eastern European women while you live out of cheap hostels or AIRBnbs and eat Ramen Noodles is no formula for a happy life. To build a business around it, and to throw horrific misogynist, racist and other idiotic rhetoric around so loosely has predictable consequences as well. He’s… Read more »

Rollo’s blog is a treasure in terms of its perspicacity, its depth of understanding and the quality of information it provides. Perhaps the best of its kind. Unfortunately however, at the end of the day it makes for a depressive conclusion because the AFC who comes to this blog will only realize how deep a hole he is in. The challenges faced by someone ‘too far gone’, like me are of an entirely different magnitude. In the final analysis, as M3 very poignantly points out in his ‘Confessions of a Reformed Incel’ post, confidence can only come from external validation.… Read more »

Regarding Roosh, my impression is that he’s perused one wet’n hairy hole too many. I aver from his writing that he’s surpassed a notch count limit where fucking for the sake of fucking loses it’s luster: if every woman is merely the life support system of a pussy and… Read more »

@ IndiscreetThoughts The plight of the AFC is rooted in the belief he has something to lose by discarding the Bluepill. This a mirage, a self imposed prison of materialism and social validation. The AFC could lose everything in 48 hours if his house burns down and he gets fired the next day, and that would be tragic from a Bluepill perspective. The Redpill perspective would see it as liberating one from his immediate social and material burdens. The Redpill is a blank slate, ctrl-z, do-over, Mulligan, a new start.

Roosh has become a carnival barker, nothing more. His motive is publicity he hopes will turn into some kind of MSM notoriety, all at the cost of selling out the men who need real answers. Neomasculinity is just a vehicle for this. He is brilliant, but only insofar as predicting the most obvious reactions of his provocations. I agree. This explains his obvious attempts to pander to the mainstream Right. The obvious problem with this approach, as with any similar one, is the implicit assumption that more and more men will be willing to engage in any sort of political… Read more »

It doesn’t go deep. You are no PUA, I like that because I’m tired from reading books that only tell men what buttons to push and when.

There is no goal because there is no leadership. The manosphere is an information clearing-house and discussion forum, not a political party.

Re: Mental Point of Origin. A big thing for the Manosphere is just teaching men to do things that they want to do and benefit them instead of turning themselves into a draft horse for a woman’s fantasies. Which is what we are, increasingly, conditioned to do. That’s more a goal than “turn every guy into Don Juan.” I don’t think most people understand that, though.

More on @InsanityBytes – Notice that she wraps herself in Christianity. The reason why is that this is borrowed authority/power.

But like so many “independent” women today, she’s got to pretend she’s powerful and wise to maintain her false consciousness.

Amplify, but do so in a goofy way, with a smile and carefree attitude and then turn it back to her. “Yeah, i’m super arrogant, it’s ridiculous I know. But how ’bout you? I don’t see you reeking of low self-esteem either.” Or “There is a really insecure guy… Read more »

“She’s such a stupid cunt, it’s entertainment at this point.” I forgive you scribblerg, because you are such a wounded and broken human being you cannot even see beauty in the world anymore. I am so sorry for all the crap you have been through, and for your inability to heal. Here’s a little bit of wisdom you should avail yourself of. The words you speak over others you are really speaking over yourself. Step one, stop perceiving yourself as a stupid cunt unworthy of anything good in life. Your words don’t hurt me at all, they only hurt you.… Read more »

I just got back from lifting at the gym, then delivering a truck bed of firewood (ash) that I had stockpiled and split at my farm to a friend. Also gave him a canvas panoramic photo of him piloting his express cruiser boat (out of respect for him taking us boating and being a masculine male). Then went and picked up some fertilizer and ironite for the lawn, as well as some peat and hummus to plant some new hydrangeas in the yard. So. I find that humorous because anyone that has been following the comments section can comprehend that… Read more »

@ All – Took a break to eat a late breakfast on the deck, lakeside 😎. Couldn’t help it I picked up the iPad to see what drivel would fall out of this insufferable bitch. According to her own “logic” she must be a moron as she called all of us morons. This is junior high school level rhetoric. She also makes a big deal out of forgiving me, lol. Guys does she sound like she forgives me? Or is this just more of her hiding behind her faith to boost her own sense of weakness and powerlessness? She once… Read more »

@SJF “Whether your battles are mental, emotional, social, or physical, chances are if you’re striving to better yourself it’s gonna hurt like hell at some point in your journey.” It’s as if hard work hurts but it’s needed to get something done. Something worth doing. @scribblerg “The proof of this occurs in the real world when confronted by real risk or danger or adversity – they crave the protection of a man/the state/the crowd rather than standing up against it every time. Biggest blind spot for men? How far superior we are in so many ways compared to women. The… Read more »

Alpha is a mindset

Just was reading this and think it shows that in nature some animals are alpha while others will never be. But still this guy is expressing all parts that I find get beating out of males in my species. The fact that he can attack a hippo because it’s their or that he can escape traps set up to kill him.

On twitter astonishing pics I saw a photo Rollo shared of a lions face full of scares it lead me into thinking about this guy.

Nature is the redpill.

here’s a site that will help you:

(note that “she decided to become an ordained interfaith minister. This training opened my eyes to the richness of spiritual belief across many traditions and the value of spiritual practice– calming and centering the self”).

Focus on “Partnered women focused on someone else” and imagine that Rollo is your The Forbidden Fruit (albeit Rollo doesn’t seem a Fruit). I hope the spiritual help you find there blesses you.

scribblerg, I see your point and all the more power to you. I am honestly happy for those of you who are doing well. At no point did I request sympathy in my post nor was it the purpose. Nor do I wish to pull anyone down. Naturally a sportsman entering the arena has to believe in his chances and fight his heart out. But if you are betting on the said sportsman I doubt if you will put your money where your mouth is based on his attitude alone. There is a real world in which there is an… Read more »

“Therein lies my larger point. that fortune, circumstances, competition and personality are not necessarily overcome by will power, positive attitude and hard work alone.”

actually your point was

“circumstances, competition and personality are not overcome by will power, positive attitude and hard work”

implicit in that is to give up or don’t bet on it if the odds are stacked against you. Scribblerg is telling us that will power, positive attitude and hard work does make a significant difference. Don’t ever allow some random dude or stupid cunt to tell you to give up.

“But why the disgust and insults?” Can I take a stab at answering that? It’s to scare the pussies away. It’s masculine talk. To him, the only issue is “whether a comment is adding value and moving the dialog along in interesting ways. The ‘burden’ is to be engaging.” Unplugging from the matrix is hard work. Triage is needed to save those that can make it. And perhaps give up on those that aren’t willing to go forward under their own masculine self-improvement power in a quest to have control over their own circumstances and control the directions of their… Read more »

OK, let me put it this way. I imagine most of you may have seen Nick Vujicic’s video below. I mean that’s TRP right there. Just one look at the man gives one a chance to learn a lot in life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjbX6mDnMwM But objectivity requires me to wonder how many individuals in his physical condition have been able to make as much of their lives as he has. It is likely to be a small percentage. That is not negativity. It is what it is and it is not their fault. Before one attains anything one has to have a… Read more »

@SJF “It’s to scare the pussies away” It’s how we talk in manspaces, and how men used to talk much of the time when there were lots of manspaces. “Put the fucking 50 cal on target cocksucker” is no longer allowed The FI is literally removing our ability to talk directly as men, and you can see that in the butthurt that results when Scribblerg calls it like it is. “Put your fucking talk on target cocksucker” seems to be no longer allowed here when discussing a FR. It has to be “constructive” and “not insulting” and offend nobody. We… Read more »

First you had “Why do 99% of startups fail?” riff, and now you post a “no arms, no legs” video. Still pitching the defeat is ours BS. You might as well be IB and her “compelled to win is losing” crap. If you want to be a pussy, fine, but don’t try to turn it into a men’s club.

@ IndiscreetThoughts You essential difficulty is to think the aggregate odds apply to individuals. The odds are a measure of aggregate difficulty and nothing more. One of the factoids I like least in the ‘sphere is the whole “only 40% of men breed’ thing. Assuming that’s true there’s no other useful data in that factoid. It doesn’t explain historical male vs. female infant and youth mortality. It doesn’t take into effect local environmental conditions. It doesn’t account for for lost opportunities due to injuries and deaths from war, occupational death and disability, or death and disability due to criminal activity.… Read more »

“I have always worked under the idea that if one man can do something then it’s possible I to can do that thing if I really want to. If I really WANT to. It’s the wanting that is the limiting factor. If you wanted to be the owner of your life you would. If want to quit smoking you can. You can do anything you want to do if you are willing to pay the price.

@IndiscreetThoughts “If this sound somewhat like a communist manifesto that focuses on envy, one must point out a key difference. Health and wealth can reasonably can belong to all.

Rollo, Thank for the TRP and all that you’ve done to help the men of this world. While certain “christian-esque trolls” (you all know who I mean) disagree with your approach, I find your method of delivery refreshing – calling the world as you see it. And it’s for us to prove/disprove. And thank you for this comment space. As @scribblerg has said a number of times, this is perhaps the only place in many men’s lives where they can come, ask questions, listen to experiences, share our thoughts, and opinions and even have those pinions shredded through open debate… Read more »
