Great post. This Red Pill awareness is something I stop to think about in every interaction. I just texted a girl I banged: “I have a surprise for you…” Her reaction was: “Looking forward to it…” I had to then analyze, and re-analyze….”Was I being beta?” “Was I trying too hard?” “Is this too much of a people pleasing text???” The point is I may in fact be over-thinking it because that whole Red Pill transition even after 7 years is still not yet complete. The years of Blue Pill conditioning, the co-dependency, the anxiety are still challenges. I still… Read more »

I will never watch a movie about men’s rights made by a woman. And I call anyone who donated money to it instead of men who are in actual need a piece of shit. How many fathers are going without dental work because they’re paying ridiculous amounts of child support. How many dads didn’t vote this election to stay off the grid? How many are living in dumps while their children feel poor unless they have the latest smart phone? The money that “men” donated to that self-promoting hag could probably have settled countless custody cases. Or, hey, given men… Read more »

@Rollo “The Red Pill was always about intersexual dynamics from as far back as I’ve been familiar with it.” Thanks I thought I was the only one. A lot of people confuse it with a mix of a mens rights movement , MGTOW and “masculine self improvement” . “A popular misconception about the Red Pill – the popularized notion of it, not the actual praxeology – is that it makes men misogynists or it’s inherently negative, or it’s function is ‘truthful anger’.” The confusion about what red pill conveniently allows this obscured view of it.

I have thought long and hard about the “Red Pill but not Jerk” issue. Ultimately I have realized that Red Pill is only placing the man’s needs first. AND centering his actions around his needs. As a father of both boys and girls I want to be nice and say that females have an existence outside of men’s needs for procreation. BUT… BUT the reality is that women are here for the purpose of birthing babies. The other activities a woman has in her life are merely anecdotes to that reality.

Various rebranding attempts that i’ve observed :-

1. Alt Right / Trump Supporter
2. Christian Conservatism / Family values / Traditional Patriachy
3. Red pill women (oxymoronic?)
4. Men’s rights
5. Misogynist

The red flags that i watch out for are moralizing and game-denialism.

@JoeK – My mom found a wild half-starved kitten once and brought it in. Thus far, its life had obviously been hardscrabble and cutthroat because even at about 8 weeks old the little fucker was always bowed up, hissing, fangs and claws at anything and everything. When we tried to feed it, it was very aggressive and didn’t hesitate to claim and take every bit even from the much larger adult cats. Two pieces of food fall about 8 inches apart on the floor. The kitten rushes over and places one paw on each piece so that its arms are… Read more »

As long as we have people like you,the core meaning of TRP philosophy will remain untainted.
But unfortunately,i can see how ‘re-branding’/trademark could stray away many potential individuals from TRP.
Blue pilled men,can now hamster and excuse their way out of a hard but potentially beneficial truth,with the help and comfort of a dilluted but easier to digest RP.
The difference now is that BP man have to smash their face one more time and go deeper.

Ang Amer What purple pill men REALLY want is to be men but still have women give them good press (good press without shaming by older women). I believe that ultimately a man must DECIDE which constituency he wants to court – Fertile Jerk loving young women, or Infertile Wimp loving older women. That’s interesting. For sure, the purple pill is an attempt to have the Red PIll cake and still appease women. This is why it must always fail, obviously.

Nice perspective Rollo.

Just basic human psych. Joe K is probably as likely (in his circle of influence/understanding), to come across a woman (or perhaps anyone else, just basing this analysis on his posting style) who places a premium on loyalty, as he is to come across a two dollar bill. It’s so rare it’s pretty much a myth. Kind of like the average Sanders/Nader/insert whomever voter couldn’t imagine anyone was voting for anyone else.

Blue Pill idealism is to some extent realizable if the female will totally surrender to the man of her choice. No exceptions. The man she chooses is her boss.

It also means she is paying attention to her responses so she understands herself. And she has to accept her responses as valid.

The odds are against it.

But it is a very old concept. So old it is mentioned in the Old Testament. Which makes it well over 2,000 years old.

They don’t believe The Lady in Red is real, but they do believe that she’s attainable and can be made real because they have the Red Pill awareness to effect it.

To me, the red pill is a verb, not a noun. The RSD Cyphers try to treat it like a proper noun, but they are wrong. You can’t trademark a verb.

@Rollo, I believe this is the best post I’ve ever read from you.

“If the Blue Pill goal is marriage and 2.5 kids, what is the Red Pill goal? King of my world, harem ready for my needs? Or MGTOW? Or marriage, but on the man’s terms?”

The Red Pill goal is what you want

Yes.

Red Pill is descriptive, not prescriptive. It frees a man to define his own goals. Hence the issue of dealing with nihilism.

“@Rollo, I believe this is the best post I’ve ever read from you.”

I was thinking the same thing. And presuming it is a cornerstone of his third book.

I was also thinking it must be confusing for someone that is un-initiated to read. (Do those new to red pill read the 12 nested links in the essay and then read those other 12 essays?)

Like @TheRedGuest with a false premise.

So Rollo, is Dalrock blue pill? The term “blue pill goals” keeps getting thrown around but what about those that hold to literal God given objective standards of morality and social order. Was Moses blue pill in 13th century BC?

It seems like “in favor of Patriarchal Monogamous Marriage” is equated with blue pill when those societies beat out other cultures in history. You can recognize that it is illegal in the current climate but I don’t see how wanting it to return is blue pill, if society breaks down it will make a comeback like it always had.

RSD Todd probably comes across a lot of bitter dudes that he associates with the red pill.

That director’s boyfriend gives off a weird vibe. Maybe because he is not used to being in front of the camera.

“With that unplugging comes a drive for self-improvement once a formerly Blue Pill guy has his moment of clarity and begins to see the influences that have shaped his life and his beliefs up to that stage.” it’s that time of year when “self-improvement” pops up. diet, gym, blah, whatever. and none of it ever sticks. why? because the idea of self-improvement is cash cow bs. the hopi have been living continuously on black mesa for longer than anyone else has been living in the same spot in north america. their life sucks. but it was good enough to stay… Read more »

Married Dread Field Report I told Mrs. Gamer that a woman had invited me to her party. Mrs. Gamer: How do you know her? Gamer: We both go to the same meetup. Mrs. Gamer: Does she know that you’re a married man? [Disparagingly] What kind of woman is she? She must not think that you’re happily married, if you even are. Ta-dum. Dread strikes again. I smile at Mrs. Gamer and go do my stuff. Mrs. Gamer goes upstairs to work. After a couple of hours, I go see Mrs. Gamer at her keyboard. She turns to me when I… Read more »

” . . . picture a cave man pounding two rocks together . . . ”

Better yet, try it. You will likely find yourself, after only a fairly short span of time, seeking better rocks for the purpose and experimenting with better banging technique.

Here is a parody about “sensitive” boys by SNL recently.

I think this is great, as it makes fun of the mantra that boys should get in touch with their “sensitive side”……

Good to see main a stream television program is laughing at males who are “sensitive”.

@Rollo Good post (I’m realizing I don’t actually say that often enough) Some nuances I want to pick on:  It is not founded in pessimism, cynicism or misogyny, but rather, honest, unvarnished assessments and correlated experiences of men.  I don’t see “cynicism” and ” honest, unvarnished assessment” as mutually exclusive. A quick Google search yields me the following result: an inclination to believe that people are motivated purely by self-interest; skepticism. This, to me, seems like it’s mostly an accurate assessment. From an evolutionary perspective, and a personal one, unfettered altruism is unsustainable. Acting without regard for one’s self-interest, in… Read more »

The SNL “Wells for boys” vid is interesting. On the one hand, it was just someone’s funny idea. That’s probably all it is. But I’m surprised they would brush up so close to gay shaming. The boy is clearly going to disappoint his father by becoming an art-fag, so it doesn’t seem like SNL would get that close to that. This is the cultural peak moment for sensitivity to homos so there had to be something more urgent behind that skit. So, is this the next brilliant FI move? Start shaming males right now for any attempts at self-awareness? It’s… Read more »

It would help if you would once and for all define the red pill more specifically than “praxeology”. As you illustrated, a vague “insight into gender relations” definition invites abuse of the red pill metaphor. I think you mean some very specific truths that contradict the conventional feminine-primary narrative. On an interpersonal level, I think you mean womens’ self-interested mating behavior to empower their hypergamy. On a societal level, I think you mean the gynocentric legal and social engineering that serve the Feminine Imperative. The Red Pill Reddit says: “The recognition and awareness of the way that feminism, feminists and… Read more »
