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

Interested in Christian’s “Dimes” if still available. BTW, loving Sam’s audible version — men go audio, I think, because we’re often busy with other shit. haha Bonus: my 12 y/o son knows of you due to hearing Daddy play you interviews. Wish I’d had such at 12 instead of 45. (my email: stevenbennett@yahoo.com)

I have this hypothetical question about the behaviour of male in a natural stare for example a feral male. Consider a situation where this feral male is living in a jungle setting and he is living alone fending for himself. On a particular day this feral male comes across a feral female (extremely physically sexually attractive) who somehow finds herself alone in the jungle. What will be the action of this feral male towards this feral female? Will he be naturally sexual towards this female? In my thinking if he is aware about sex then there are two possible actions… Read more »

love the poem. tell me honestly, though, is it safe for a critically thinking, neo-con female to engage in the dialog here? along the pendulum arc swing toward the outer limits of male hegemony, preservers of maleness, such as Robert Bly, Drs. Dan Kindlon & Michael Thompson, Irvin Yalom dwell in a milieu of collaboration over conflict. will you and your readers be amenable to open-ended questions and inconclusive answers?

I truly respect your work. But i’m sure you know how valuable it is. I believe you recommended in ‘The Rational Male’ that able men should spin plates until they’re atleast thirty. Yet at the same time you observe that the hypergamous nature of women. The problem, it seems, is that if all men spin plates until atleast 30 they encourage the same hypergamy that ruins the marriages of men later in life. Hypergamy says that women don’t hesitate to fuck Alphas during their SMV-peak. And yet, by not ‘tying them down’ during this period, men are passively complicit in… Read more »

Rollo, I just read both your books. I am hoping you can answer this post/question for me. Towards the end of the Rational Male – Preventive Medicine, you say that you need to unplug, to be hopeful in a new system, one where you have control within it. I am always on the reddit.redpill forum where they talk about going to the gym as being a religion, not caring about women before yourself, be alpha, bla bla, basically, everything you have stated in your two books, but after 24 years of being conditioned, the ‘self’ of who I am knows… Read more »

Hey, man. Listened to some podcasts where you were the guest and browsed your blog. Really interesting stuff. I downloaded the audiobook for THE RATIONAL MALE and the narration is really rough – I didn’t last 5 minutes before I had to give up, and I love listening to non-fiction, so it’s not for lack of trying or taste. I looked up Sam Botta – almost no audiobooks to his name – I think you got an audiobook novice. He reads like he’s doing a TV promo or a radio announcement. I hope you’ll consider redoing the audiobook with a… Read more »

I’m about half way through your first book and it is such an amazing read. You’re addressing many elephants in the room which is long overdue. I just read the part about personality being malleable. Personality change has been an interest of mine for quite some time and I was wondering if you had any book/blog reccomendations regarding this topic. Any other manosphere/game related reading suggestions would be welcomed as well.

Keep up the good work!

Hello Rollo i m already know about for alpha fux beta bux but from what i see infield women use it throught their lifes, i mean even a 20 y o girl should normally dump any beta man but they keep beta friends mainly for economic/emotional resources. Some keep them even in relationships but they cheat on them like never had. From what i understand women need both alpha and beta men because i see women when they lack of betas are looking for beta with the same methods use for alpha men just for different reasons.

Dear Rollo,

Thank you so much for this treasure trove of insights into what’s really been going on insofar as man / woman relations in the Western world are concerned.

Your English is of course exemplary, but please correct “suffrage” to ” suffering” above and in at least one other writing / talk of yours. I’m telling you this because some twerps may use this minor error (which all of us make) against you.

Keep it up, brother.

Rollo, I like the image theme for the new field report category, but think it would be more in the spirit of TRM to use a male lion. Granted, the male leaves most of the shopping and meal preparation to his females, but when he does decide to get involved it is usually the animal kingdom equivalent of launching a nuke. Based on your work in EvoPsych, I can recommend the short film “Eternal Enemies, Lions and Hyenas” by National Geographic. Hyenas are matriarchal, lions are patriarchal in an old school (very old) sense. The hyenas (feminists) bully the lionesses… Read more »

Hi Rollo really impressive blog so insightful. I’m in a LTR 25 years , 3 x boys and hit a crisis half way through this year.

What’s really resonated for me is two things – and I’d intuitively started figuring out that I’d lost my way and been sucked in to the mass scale feminist innoculation we’d all grown up with. I’d lost myself and ironically this was one of my wife’s biggest complaints that… Read more »

Jack, she’s yanking your choke chain just to get you to respond, because she gets an emotional rush from you acting like you’re still her dog. She is degrading you, and enjoying it. There’s a word for that sort of behaviour. It begins with “Psycho” and ends with “path.” Now, here’s the thing that might seem counter intuitive: telling her to stop is a larger response, an escalation of your relationship. It’s having a fight. A fight is something you have with your girlfriend. She’s not your girlfriend. She’s basically a telemarketer, only worse. If you no longer have an… Read more »

Recently took the red pill. I have questions.

I’ve suspected for years, but without your book never knew how to support it. Are “dumb blondes” some of the smartest women out there(particularly when they are hot)? At least emotionally/game smart, using their perceived “dumbness” for additional covert communication or as an out when someone accuses them of something? Is it akin to a junker car with a sick engine under the hood?

Do you have an article that explains this more fully?

Hey Rollo, Brilliant stuff. I’m most impressed with your articulateness. Like in college, I find myself re-reading sentences and highlighting them (I bought The Rational Male) for that “holy shit, does that really mean what I think it means” moments. This is powerful stuff and you deliver it like a treatise.

My only issue–you need an editor. Minor polishing, nothing that would change any meaning or intent (you’re already spot-on), but necessary for perfection. I’d be willing to do it.
