About

Sitting here like uninvited company
Wallowing in my own obscenities
I share a cigarette with negativity
Sitting here like wet ashes with X’s in my eyes
And drawing flies

Bathed in perspiration drowned my enemies
Used my inspiration for a guillotine
I fire a loaded mental cannon to the page
Leaning on the pedestal that holds my self denial
Firing the pistol that shoots my holy pride
Sitting here like wet ashes with X’s in my eyes
And drawing flies

And I said “Hey what you yellin’ about
Conditions, permission, mirrored self-affliction?”

“Hey what you yellin’ about
Sadists’ co-addiction, perfect analogies?”

“Hey what you yellin’ about
Conditions, permission, mirrored self-affliction?”

Leaning on the pedestal that holds my self denial
Firing the pistol that shoots my holy pride
Sitting here like wet ashes with X’s in my eyes
And drawing flies

Good blog. I just got here from Roissy. Best of luck. Keep the long-essay format, but break it into subheds. Those are the easiest to scan — we are all scanners online. But if the material is good, the scan will lead to in-depth reading, like samples lead to feasts. Post your seminal pieces, like Roissy did with his sixteen commandments, above the blogroll to the right, so newbies can get up to speed with a click or two and you won’t have to repeat yourself (one of the impetuses of this blog, I take it). Writing regularly is more… Read more »

Just ran across this tonight. Evidently it’s been around for awhile. The Reverend is a bit over the top in his presentation but he gets it. Bear with the Q&A format- it takes a few pages to warm up.

Here’s a little preview:

“Keep in mind the basic rule that he who cares least wins. Do not allow yourself to become emotionally attached to your dates and girlfriends, or some very unhappy days are in store for you. You may allow them to enjoy your body, your mind, and your money, but always deny them your soul”

You can’t stop yourself from getting emotionally attached to someone who you’re fond of, you bloody idiot. Bonding with another human being isn’t really a choice, it’s rather biochemical and involuntary. How facetious and naive of you.

The two biggest shocks of my life have been discovering PUA/The Manosphere/Game. The second was discovering this blog. I read a few of your comments at Aunt Susan’s before wandering over. It is amazing how I have internalized cultural meme’s like that of soul mates, and how I just sort of never considered never marrying, because of how the feminine imperative absolutely dominates discourse in our society. Your work has been absolutely critical in my internalization of the red pill, and has actually helped me let go a lot of my anger and bitterness.For about a year, I was completely… Read more »

Hi Rollo,

I was wondering what your views are about guys that are below average height? How do they overcome the heightist attitude 99% of all women have. One is automatically disqualified as an attractive guy or romantic interest because of shorter stature.

I am 5″8 myself. This might not sound really short, but I live in the Netherlands. The average male height here is over six feet.

Thanks, love your posts.

Hey Rollo, Long time viewer, first time commenter. Great blog, BTW. Just curious to see if you’ve you seen this drivel being spewed by none other than Jon Hamm of ‘Mad Men’ fame? Check it out: http://ca.omg.yahoo.com/blogs/the-juice-celeb-news/jon-hamm-ask-grown-man-video-gives-feminist-150758838.html Seems like even Mr. Hamm has avoided the red pill even after having all of the tools of the trade, so to speak. Well, except the right mindset as it relates to the female mind and how it really functions, it seems. Perhaps it might make for a good post about how even people who are either innately alpha or have great alpha-potential,… Read more »

Rollo, I respect the high quality work you’ve been producing. If you’re ever looking for a blog topic I’d love to hear your thoughts on determining a girls LTR potential based on her upbringing. Specifically, economic class growing up, and her father. My personal “unscientific” research has been: Middle class girl with married biological parents, and a non AFC father are the most stable/LTR. The further you stray from this the more unstable / borderline batshit crazy they get. (think adopted girl to a single mom). This is obvious to you I’m sure, but it amazes me how much the… Read more »

Rollo,

You wrote a post at some time that ended, in essence, with you saying (please correct me if I get this wrong) that you work the alpha, in part, because of your wife. Because she is feminine and because it satiates her hypergamy. I have been looking for it and cannot find it. Would you please give me the link if you remember the post I am writing about?

Thank you.

Thank you Rollo for sharing those links. I read them over. Basically the female imperative = the feminine reality = the female purpose = the matrix. Now, what is the relationship between this imperative and hypergamy? Is hypergamy what is behind the female imperative? Or are both the same beast?

You mean beside every post on this blog? Heheh,..

You can look through my blog roll of course, but I’d suggest Chateau Heartiste, Dalrock’s blog, RooshV and the Mature Men’s forum on the SoSuave BBS.

If you’re looking for a book, don’t read anything Game related until you look up Dr. Warren Farrell’s books, Myth of Male Power and Why Men Are the Way They Are.

48 Laws of Power and The Art of Seduction by Robert Greene are also required reading.

What’s happening Rollo, This is a pretty deep question, but you’re a father and I was wondering if you have any advice or suggestions (e.g books to read) on how to be a good role model to your children, especially to a son, in the game sense. I’m only 20 years old and I’ve got no children at the moment, but I thought I’d ask ’cause you never know how long a blog will be around for.

Hey Rollo, I stumbled upon the manosphere years ago, and although I more or less agreed with the uncomfortable (and yet somewhat freeing) truths of Game that were brought to my attention, nothing I had read prior to this blog resonated quite so profoundly for me. This is truly a treasure trove of Inner Game insights, and for that alone, it is worth reading from start to finish for anyone serious about overcoming AFCness/Beta-ness. Anyway, there are two reasons for my writing. First, I’d be happy to write-up a glossary page that briefly defines all the key terms of Game.… Read more »

Rollo, since discovering your blog all the way back in January, I have been consciously observant of the fem-centric atmosphere with which western men live in today. The best example I can think of up to this point of the fem-centric conditioning you have brought up in earlier discussion, is the webiste http://www.MSN.com.

I will not leave any evidence here. However, I do encourage that you and all the readers stop by the MSN.com website and simple observe the daily headlines they have going. From the manosphere prospective, It’s a shocking but CLEAR example of what you mean.
