The Advantages of Now

As of this writing my second talk at last year’s 21 Convention is now available for free public viewing on 21 University. I worked this ‘talk’ a bit differently as you’ll see. I find that I can address what most of my readers are concerned with most in and open discussion rather than my delivering a sermon from the stage. I think I’m more comfortable with this as I’ve been aggregating information with other men in a forum style discourse for so long. My time at SoSuave really taught me the value of that back and forth exchange of information, and it’s really what led to so much of the material I’ve covered on the blog for almost 7 years now.

For the sake of clarity, this talk was the second I did and took place a day after my first, Hypergamy, Micro to Macro. I had originally intended to cover aspects of my third book, Positive Masculinity, since it had been released about 2 months prior. I had an extensive lecture all ready to go, but I decided to switch up my talk that morning. The day and night before I had gotten into at least 8 different “sub-conferences” with spontaneous groups of about a dozen guys that went on for any where between 20 minutes to an hour. It occurred to me then that the best way to address my topic would be to have an open discussion about masculinity with the guys I was talking to just a few ours before.

As much as I liked the first talk – and I still feel understanding Hypergamy in its entirety is a keystone element in understanding intersexual dynamics – I think this talk was much more personal. I’ve always felt that the Red Pill should remain ‘open source’ and be an aggregate of the experience of men from all over the world. To this end I’ll always feel that a roundtable discussion style is the best way to encourage men not just to put in their two cents, but also as the best way for men to learn. I am first a writer and then a speaker, but my speaking will always be better when a man is expressing his concerns, problems, critiques and experiences within a group of men focused on untangling Red Pill awareness. I’m always humbled when an interviewer calls me one of the Godfathers of the Red Pill, but the truth is there is no father of the Red Pill. For as much as some writers would like us to believe they fathered the manosphere, Red Pill awareness is the result of a consortium of men who came together, offered their input to the whole and made it something greater than it was before.

I got to watch both my talks before the post-production and release, and while I was reviewing them it occurred to me how fortunate this generation is to have access to such information today. I’m from a generation that didn’t have the internet when I was in my early 20s. There were no Game Gurus and the only “how to pick up girls” books we’re only available from mail order ads you found in the back of a Penthouse or Hustler magazine. I did read Why Men Are The Way They Are by Dr. Warren Farrell in 1993, but other than that book there was nothing about the nature of women that would ever be published by the major publishing houses then.

After I reviewed my video here I watched a TED talk given by Robert Greene, author of The 48 Laws of Power, and in it he recounted all of the dead end jobs and life experience he’d accrued up to around 1996 when a friend of his fronted him $30,000 to keep him going while he wrote the book. He’d always wanted to be a writer, but until the mid 2000s publishing was locked by a monopoly of a handful of ‘traditional’ publishing houses. Even the 48 Laws of Power had to get past their review processes. Now I think Robert Greene is one of the greatest minds of our time in his articulating power dynamics, I attempted to model my own writer’s voice on his example, but there was a time when anything resembling Red Pill awareness or truths that would be less than flattering to the status quo would never have seen the light of day. Print on demand and digital publishing (eBooks) wasn’t even a dream at that time, but today we take them for granted.

I never had a childhood dream of being an author, writing is just something I’ve always done as one more outlet for my creativity. I never thought I’d be a published author of one book, much less three. Nor did I imagine I’d have audio versions of them (book 3 is coming soon Sam promises). But now is the time. With digital publishing anyone can be an author so long as their ‘content’ is good.

We are living in an era in which certain things we take for granted are the only time in history that they could occur. That might sound self-evident, but think about it; our technology today is such that certain ideas that could never have been brought into popular consciousness could only be considered because of that technology. We have an advantage of now. It’s kind of humbling in a way – having witnessed the transition from a time when all of the dynamics we invested so much of ourselves in then are now made common, cheapened in some cases, and the legitimacy of having earned them is lessened as a result.

In my rock star 20s it took 4-5 months of all of the guys in my band to scrape together enough money to pay for a 3 song demo tape (no CDs for us then) in a recording studio, and that was with us having friends in the industry. Today I can do everything that very expensive studio could on my iMac. I have tools now to create the dreams I’ve had since I was in high school, but the challenge is no long the access, but the ideas themselves. We live in an age when access to the tools and means of creation has never been greater, but the ideas, the imagination, the abstract unrefined concepts is what I think is lacking today. We can produce masterpieces of music in our homes, but today music is only getting worse.

I’ve seen videos of brilliant instrumentalist virtuosos on YouTube. Kids not older than ten playing complex pieces of music they learned and absorbed themselves online, yet few could actually create an original song with any expressiveness themselves.

We also live in an age where access to information has never been more ubiquitous. We have access to the knowledge of all human history in a device that we can put in our pocket, yet we’re still too lazy to actually use the search feature or cite an easily had source. We have a connectivity today that spans the globe, yet we readily factionalize and atomize our social networks according to ideological biases.

A lot of this disconnect from real genius, from true creativity, I want to chalk up to the constant distractions we’re bombarded with daily. It’s really the price we pay for having unlimited access to information and the tools of creation. Paraphrasing the late Chris Cornell, there are no more writers like Shakespeare because all he had was a table, a candle, a pen and some paper. Today, learning to avoid distractions and focus on a single task is an art itself, but there’s another reason for this lack of honest genius and that is we’re gradually seeing a new generation of men and women who are themselves the product of a social order that has never known a time or condition where this access didn’t exist.

I think it was Dave Grohl who said something like kids today think rock stars are generated from talent shows on TV. Even with all the easy access to creative expression there’s still this idea that the process is somehow out of their control.

So why am I freestyling this post just to introduce my next talk video? Because I want my readers to get some insight about the radical nature of the information that the Red Pill presents today. I’ve written essays about how the 1990s really represented the pinnacle of the Feminine Imperative’s social influence. This was due to the limitations of information inherent in that time. In those essays I wanted to stress just how influential the Imperative was on western culture, but more importantly just how ignorant we were of ever perceiving it then. Today, the jig is up.

The internet has exposed the influences of feminism and it’s opened up a dialog – one that the controllers of the means of it would like to censor – in which it can no longer hide its true intent. The nature of women, the mechanics of intersexual dynamics, the good, the bad and the ugly of everything the Red Pill makes us aware of is increasingly expanding. It’s expanding so much that I fear we’re reaching a point where the means to explore new ideas in the ‘sphere are being limited by the means itself.

When you watch this video, any Red Pill aware video, when you read the latest essay here or anywhere else, keep in the back of your mind that knowing this information is only possible in this time. I wrote Preventive Medicine in response to men telling me how they’d wished they’d had this information back when they were younger and didn’t know better so they could make better, informed decisions. The truth is that the information I’ve been spreading since 2002 could only be realized in this age. Some will say, “yeah, but ancient scholars (and deified psychologists) knew this stuff a long time ago”, to which I’ll say ‘no, they didn’t’. Not to the extent we do today. Not with the degree of accuracy we know now. Only now is this possible, and only later will we have an even greater understanding of the Red Pill – for better or worse.

You are fortunate to be here in the now. Some of what you’re made aware of will frustrate and anger you, some of it will depress you and some of it will bring you to that “Ah Ha!” moment. The Red Pill can enlighten you or stifle you, but you are better off knowing it now in an age where this is finally possible.

The closest thing I can find that relates to what you half ass describe is just ‘social dominance’. That’s still awfully broad and independent of getting sex.

”’Defining masculinity in 2018 is harder than ever because western culture has drifted so very far away from it. It’s become an enigma of sorts. You have to baby step all the way back to the rudimentary basics – deeper voice, posture,attitude ( not specifically zfg, but comfort in being fully male ), but today, ever word used as a descriptor would have to be parsed and broken down into paragraphs of explanations.”

My initial thought was this title was saying the advantages of NOW (the feminist group). That would be an interesting subject. The welfare state did free men to an extent from the beta burden of resource provisioning performance, and the sexual revolution and contraceptive freed men from marriage as a means to access steady sex.

“The welfare state did free men to an extent from the beta burden of resource provisioning ”

Who do you think is paying for that welfare state, Bub?

Masculinized career women that other women that turned into their beta mules.

Women as a group put in so little and take out so much compared to men that women as a group do not pay taxes. Women are supported by men.

Mersonia,

Imo your comments reflect, as alot of men, a lack of long term vision. It’s no big deal when you can remain in the proximal and static.

Your reaction: “Yeah dude don’t try to put me in a box and label me something i’m not……..”

and the unnecessary hyperreflexic defensiveness points to insecurity. I pointed out other approaches that focus on the unchanging now and the peril of that…and you thought I was attacking you directly.

I assume your anxious online persona is nothing like your skills around women.

Have a good day.

I’m sure I’m O/T but I just don’t have the resolve to wade through all the comments… Re: “Positive Masculiinty” as a term of art in our movement, since Rollo’s talk had this title I figured I’d share about that term. I fell into this trap of an idea (i’m not suggesting Rollo has, fyi) for a little while inside the ‘men’s movement’. It turns out the very idea of it is a gynocentric critique of masculinity and a proffer of what “good men” should be like. Which is a combination of men behaving more like women, and behaving in… Read more »

Jesus, look at that incompetent, feckless cunt from Australie, Leyonhjelm up the thread in that video. He’s incapable of making a sound argument or expressing the male oriented position. Instead he weakly twists the woman’s actual words as a way of hiding instead of standing up and explaining what’s wrong with the entire obsession of our society with women’s concerns. He should be saying “men are victims of violence much more often than women, and accordingly, special attention to violence against women seems to be an exercise of privilege. Why are women privileged to have their concerns placed ahead of… Read more »

Good thing for me I never believed or followed any of that shit, even when society harranged me for not doing so. Strange to watch people waking up. Even stranger watching newer generations of men not buying into the bullshit at all, yet having very few viable alternative ways to deal and cope and flourish. I’m a big believer in knowing history ( real history from all sides as the truth lies in the middle somewhere ) as to avoid the more tragic aspects of human existence, but to live in the past, looking back fondly over some shit that… Read more »

“What is it to be a gentleman anyway?”

Rob Walker, best known as the most successful privateer F1 team owner, descendant of Johnnie, listed “Gentleman” as his profession on his passport.

Because he had money and didn’t have to work for a living.

Blax, is it really so stupid to tell lies to babies to improve morale and give them a framework to start from? Men are supposed to be able to figure things out when they mature.

Blaximus

Babies are helpless. The biggest lies are good to people from the time they learn to walk until the time they flatline for good.

Men fight hard for the lie. Men don’t question what they consider to have always been.

Most men are destroyed when the kids become so evident that a state of willful ignorance can no longer be maintained.

“Men are supposed to be able to figure things out when they mature.”

Mature men are actually looking for Atlantis, a lie constructed for babies to improve morale and give them a framework to start from.

Scribbs Great description of the journey. Great post. All – remember understanding the Golden Rule is an important part of the the Platinum Rule mindset… Golden Rule – Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Embedded in this mindset is servitude, delayed gratification, covert contracts and if I do X I will get Y thinking. Bondage religion for those in bondage. “I was to also behave civilly with other men, and to respect and play nicely in all of the hierarchies that the world sets out for men to exist in, and try and ascend.” …… Read more »

Dalrock’s been chewing on chivalry for a while now.
tl;dr: It’s the Female Imperative as enforced by White Knights.
No surprise there.

I consider myself a gentleman, but I don’t expect anything in return, and I don’t go overboard.

I think if a guy has to try, and be mindful of being a gentleman, he is not. Any time men take shit or feel pressured into doing something or being something, they are doing it wrong.

If a guy did it wrong, okay then, that’s on him. Doing a 180 is Just as take as doing the ” servitude ” thing. 😂

How many flips can a man flop?

And will any of it be real?

Also, while I’m opining, if a guy thinks that he is going from being a nice guy because the Fi, and he’s not going to live by ” rules ” , then it would stand to reason that the guy wouldn’t have any rules? No? Ergo there’s nothing to prove, or thought to Lord over others, no?

I have rules, but they are my rules. Sometimes they mesh with broader society, sometimes they don’t. But can one have absolutely ” no rules “?

Even Game has rules…….

Just pondering.

@Blax – Being a gentleman was/is a plan? Evolving and learning is flipflopping? You are trying way too hard buddy. Here’s a hint for you – if you are going to do intellectual battle, come armed… @All – Parting thought. I come here infrequently to keep myself from LARPing in the digital world. Not just here, but rather in general. I force myself to deal with myself and reality in the moment. I see that the digital world is essentially a fantasyworld, a chimerical drug that consumes people far too much. It’s interesting that in the tech world in which… Read more »

@scribblerg You always post good great stuff. Keep doing so. It’s good and fun. But don’t be so afraid of your shadow. Or the imagined faulty lives of others out there. You always also post Strawman statements. And you also compare yourself to who others are today, rather than who you were yesterday. And this isn’t a complaint. Just a mere statement. You say: “I force myself to deal with myself and reality in the moment.” Some of us have been doing that for 35 years. And some of us are in a great place right now (and have been… Read more »
