Live with Christian McQueen

11-16-2014-36

A few Rational Male updates to pass on here. I’m getting very close to publishing my third book – The Rational Male, Positive Masculinity, so needless to say April is already beginning to be a very hectic month for me. In addition to this, I’ve got several other business irons in the fire, both from a Red Pill perspective as well as my personal career, all of which are very exciting for me.

With the Private Man’s passing I had to stop and do a bit of introspection and self-evaluation. Andrew’s death occurred a day after my 49th birthday and I needed to take some time to ask myself what I want to do with the time I have remaining. One of the best things about The Rational Male is that the ideas I explore are both timeless and subject to the social winds of our time. That said, I don’t ever see a time where I’ll be slowing down from connecting the dots I do, but obviously I have only a very limited say in how long I’ll be doing this. I had asked Andrew to write the forward to my third book, but obviously fate had a different idea for the book. Needless to say I’ll be writing it myself now. I had wanted this section to be a sort of testimonial last message memorial to him, instead I’ll be dedicating the book to his memory. Both my books have become institutions in the manosphere and Red Pill awareness on whole. I had hoped this new one would be some kind of enduring obituary for Andrew.

In the five and a half years I’ve written this blog I have never taken a sabbatical longer than a week’s vacation time – hell, I even tee up two drafts just to keep things going on vacations. Making men Red Pill aware, evolving ideas, planning new ventures, and exchanging ideas with other men, has always been a life-mission for me. I never really planned it, it’s just something I feel like I need to do, but when a luminary like Private Man comes to an end, that’s when I have to take stock of things. The Red Pill, the sphere, unplugging men from their indenturement, my books, my presence is, I feel, the dent in the universe I, and other men are making at this time in human history.

So, with that, I’m happy to say I wont be slowing down any time soon. Steve Jobs was said to be even more motivated to making his dent in the cosmos after he’d accepted his own mortality. I’m very healthy now, I have a lot going on in my life and I see no reason not to continue doing what I do. I do however acknowledge my own mortality much more acutely these days. My wife’s brother died suddenly in his sleep back in 2011 at the age of just 39. No indication, no hypertension, no nothing. For all impressions the guys was very healthy, no alcohol, no smoking, etc., but one night he simply died (heart failure is what the coroner said). It’s incidents like this that keep me going.

In the coming year I have a lot planned for The Rational Male and Rollo Tomassi. I’ll be making a public appearance again; the first one in 2 years by the time I do. I’m more comfortable with being at least semi-public now, and while that wont change anything substantially for what I do, it does mean I’ll be less concerned showing my face. The third book will drop this month, or early in May, depending on when I finish the forward now. And Sam Botta assures me the audio for Preventive Medicine will be coming out in the next 2 months.

There is one big announcement I’ll be making tomorrow on my 4th podcast with Christian McQueen. I’ve had this in the works since October of 2016 and I’m happy to say it’s finally going to happen this year. As always, please use the comment thread here to ask me any questions you might like me to answer on the show tomorrow. We’ll be catching up and going at it like we always do. We’ll be recording around 12 noon PST.

Lastly, I’ll also be talking to Richard Cooper live on his own YouTube channel the following day, Saturday, April 8th. So if there’s anything on his show you’d like me to cover feel free to drop those questions here too.


 

The Christian McQueen interview can be accessed here. Fair warning, it is behind a paywall, but I feel it’s well worth Christian’s very marginal membership fee.

In Episode 78 of A Man In Demand Radio, I welcome the great Rollo Tomassi, an astute author and giant among men.

In this exclusive (3-hour) interview, we discuss everything from the Current State of Man in 2017 to politics (lightly), to hypergamy, and much more, including answering all of your questions that you posted in the Comments section of his blog and on my forum.

This is 3 plus hours of great insight and wisdom from Rollo and is not to be missed…

Show Notes

  • How the Red Pill can help you raise your children (specifically daughters)

  • The use of Game in relationships and marriage

  • The epidemic of the anti-male agenda in the media

  • When Rollo’s 3rd book is coming out and what’s inside

  • Rollo’s advice to ‘himself at 15 years old’

  • All readers questions answered covering a variety of topics

  • And much, much more!

I would love to see the concept “Alpha Widow” discussed. I feel many men within this community misinterpret it; it’s my impression that these individuals misconstrue the concept because of a lack of experience with this particular female. I’ve been out with a couple of these women, and this idea is real. Upon reflection, what can be a little disconcerting is if I have cast a shadow upon women I’ve been involved with (causing them to become Alpha Widowed) unbeknownst to me. It’s a fascinating concept. Prayers go out to Private Man’s family. Early in my unplugging I read that… Read more »

@Rollo I’d like a topic of discussion between you and Christian to be: What are some best practices in Red Pill and Game discussions to bridge any divides between the Old Married Guys and Young Single Guys? You know, how to be on the same side. Not to have animosity. After all, you and Christian both have respect for each others red pill and game attributes. Your red pill and his style of game are complementary. It seemed like the ongoing Great Debates here in 2016 were a rabid frame battle. It seem to lack that same complementary benefits based… Read more »

I have a question: I’ve had some recent issues with “Friends”…guys who I would otherwise consider had my back are acting more like girls: flakey, unhelpful, duplicitous, self-centered. From a Red Pill perspective, what is the role of male friendships? Robert Greene in his book 48 Laws of Power says “Don’t put too much trust in friends”. Any insights? As I become more Red Pill, I find myself surrounded by weak, duplicitous, back-stabbing betas…. This ranges from business to personal situations. When I think “Who are my closest friends?” I find myself struggling to come up with an answer. Loading...

It’s been my experience in life, that real, true friends are hard as hell to come by. If you happen to have shady, untrustworthy ” friends “, catalog them as such in your mind, and never trust them.

this way you will not expect too much from them. Either accept them as they are, or dump them. The choice is yours.

But don’t trust them.

The search for real, trustworthy friends is a journey of great length. When you happen upon frauds, keep it moving without mental investment on your part.

It is journey. We all learn (I think). The more Red Pill you become, the more you are able to see people for who they are. Also the more selfish you become (it comes with the definition of player). Birds of a feather; other players recognize you as one of them and open up subconsciously. So you get new “friends”; but like you they are players (and hence users). If you slip up you get used too. You are only as useful to a user as far as you have something to give, and a user is only as useful… Read more »

What is their motivation. And what are you going to do about that? Certainly not keep them as friends, right. Acquiring friends is a process that does not depend on the outcome. It’s your job to consider and discriminate them. It’s not their job to be honest or to vet themselves for you. Didn’t you ever consider that they are self serving and duplicitous.

It may be a year or two before you can show your face but I think the winds are changing in a lot of respects.

Women despise the current breed of ‘men’ and crave masculinity but are literally starved of it. Of course they don’t even know it completely themselves until confronted with the reality.

You probably just need a bit more critical mass of support than you have now and it will be safe to reveal yourself.

From nowhere a car came towards the toddler the driver totally oblivious. The BP neighbour husband froze, I lunged past the car and dragged the toddler away and the wife screamed. The wife absolutely tore a lump off my BP neighbour verbally dressing him down for ‘doing nothing’. Shortly after she was all eyes, thanks, and preening towards me.

This man is in a class by himself and not to be confused with friends generally. I need a different word for him but don’t know what it is.

As TRM goes more public, and its sensei goes more public, I foresee an interesting experiment in branding and media presence, with our sensei as both self-appointed guinea pig and totem. To wit: (1) maintain and promote his RP writings as The Great and Powerful Rollo, while (2) maintaining a separate professional presence/ego/personality as the ad-man and liquor brander, using his real Meat-World name of Aaron WashingUpLiquid or whatever it may be. And perhaps that is the best solution, which the experiment can validate: maintain two separate professional personalities.

I have seen this a few times now and as a serious question what makes it all about babies?

Historically and hopefully I can see this being the case, but why is this still in play?

What is it that makes this still a factor?

@walawala I think that as men we’re fundamentally alone. I didn’t really get this until I went through a very rough time in business and all doors closed in my face. I’ve been both broke and worth millions more than once. The same people who snivel and profess their eternal loyalty/friendship when you’re worth millions laugh at you when you’re broke. In the same way when you divorce a load of your old married male ‘friends’ can’t even look at you in the school playground because their wives won’t let them. It’s only with the benefit of the RP lens… Read more »

Palmasailor, thanks. Much.

How the heck did I manage all these years without knowing who Felix Dennis was?

The man left a fortune of 500 million Pound Sterling to … his forest. Excellent.

I’ve had my babies thanks. Getting snipped in July. At 58 I just want to fuck bitches before my plumbing disintegrates. After learning RP I can’t say I like them much anymore.

I guess the anger is coming back

From SJF: “Red pill guys are out there, and I sense guys don’t know that it should be an imperative to pursue them as possible friends. Cause sometimes red pill is seemingly like Walter White in Breaking Bad (not out in the open like a crystal blue persuader). I brought this up a year or so ago, the there should be more desire (and methods) to hook up with red pill guys in real life off of blogs. I’m of the opinion that guys should use any means necessary to actually have a tribe of like-minded men. I didn’t really… Read more »

Never mind the typos. Editing on an iPhone with phat thumbs is something I need to master.

Much respect and appreciation for your excellent work over the years Mr T. I’ve certainly learned a lot and have shared TRM with a few friends, all of whom have been appreciative. Women are such flakes these days they just can’t be taken seriously & really aren’t worth getting involved seriously with, apart from just to play with as you would a child. My current lover has just flaked out on her 47th birthday party ’cause for some reason. This is after I had organised for one of my band’s to play there, dropped my pa off, started promoting it… Read more »

Please share this before youtube takes it down. There are powerful forces in our society arrayed against men holding women accountable when they mistreat children.

But the forces of good are stronger. Light has a cleansing quality. How many more situations like this happen every day that we never hear about?

Reading the opening sentence of the second paragraph, my first thought was, “shit, he’s quitting.” This quotation came to mind:

“It’s just natural, it’s not a great disaster. People keep talking about it like it’s The End of The Earth. It’s only a rock group that split up, it’s nothing important. You know, you have all the old records there if you want to reminisce.”

What a relief.

Yes, I agree.
Any man should try to form friendships with other RP men. In real life.

Any people from Germany in here?

Replace the band as her gift, with a gift-wrapped hamster wheel.

I thought about retiring.

For me it would be a mistake. Instead I just work from the med when I feel like it. Not quite the same pace, but I still have goals and objectives.

I’m 58 and also thinking about retiring in 2 or 3 years, depending on when I can sell the farm and various toys I’ve collected over the years. Not sure it’s this right think to do. As long as I have a 120K/year hi tech job why not stick around?
Also started my MSF so motorcycling is to play a big part in my new life
