    It’s been about 6 months since I have embraced the red pill and the journey it has allowed me to undergo. Some of you may be aware of my background, others may not.

    For those of you who aren’t, the only thing I would have you know is that I’ve never truly been gravely maimed by women in my life, therefore, I personally feel that I lack what I suppose many of us would define as the “red pill rage”.

    That being said, I did recognize that there were problems that existed, hidden in plain sight. Otherwise, I would have never embraced the lifestyle that is MGTOW.

    But part of that journey has been recognizing the many forms of the manifestation of the red pill in both myself and others, the effects it has had psychologically on us, and how it has been reflected in our actions.

    The two manifestations (though i’m sure there are many more) That I would like to discuss are Rejection of the Status Quo and Self-Actualization.

    So the first manifestation should be the most commonly known and recognized. Essentially in this mode of thinking, we are ultimately rejecting the influencing grips of outside mediators onto our life in favor of reclaiming self-soverance over it once again.
    We are acknowledging that our body and mind is under no authority but our own, and that we would never yield such authority to anyone.

    The second manifestation, self-actualization, is one that I fear is more overlooked by men who have acquired too many burdens in life, which is an understandable yet unfortunate circumstance.

    Under the blue pill mindset, we were led to believe that we should pursue happiness. After all, we as humans desire that which makes us happy, and under this mindset, we will push forward through life if happiness is seemingly obtainable.

    This is a mistake.

    Jordan Peterson has in some instances suggested that pursuit of happiness is a pointless affair, and instead, we should be pursing purpose.

    As men, we acquire satisfaction from working towards a meaningful goal. Happiness is certainly desirable, but it should not be the purpose for which we live, but a byproduct of how we live.
    Happiness by itself isn’t the big picture, it is part of the picture. The big picture is finding our way in life, finding our purpose in life, dreaming dreams, making goals, achieving goals and living for ourselves.

    So I’ll ask of you all, old members, new members, lurkers, so on and so forth. Don’t just stop at rejecting the status quo! Go further than that, go all the way! Find what your purpose is! Find what you want to do in your life, then do it! Chase after your purpose and when you finally grasp it, never let go!

    The might of masculinity has been lying dormant for quite some time. But as the cycle of life comes full circle, history shall come to repeat itself. We have fallen, and thus, we shall rise again.

    My purpose? None, if I had to choose wreck havoc for the fun of it.

    You can reject all you want, we all do, but at the end we pay taxes, follow rules, obey commands like everyone else.

    In a minor degree maybe, but still, one day maybe I can make my scape, get away from everything, load up on guns and ammo, go off the grid. That day I will be really rejecting the status quo.

    Until then, I’m just another whore in the state local slut house… and I’m not even the star, I’m the cheapest whore there is.

    You know the fat one who makes 2×1 to broke soldiers?

    That one.

    To those following me, be careful, I just farted. Men those beans are killers.

    Meh
    Happiness is over rated and wholly unachievable because the end goal/definition always changes.
    I’ll just stay with being content in my life, as that is where my “happiness” is most abundant.

    There was a time in my life when I gave a fuck. Now you have to pay ME for it

    It’s always a good start to accomplish a little bit of something at a time when you are unable to accomplish a lot of once.

    The thing that matters most is staying on that stride consistently though…

    Well said Penman. It’s all over sooner than we know it. We’re on our deathbed thinking what the f~~~ happened, life went by so fast.

    I find ‘self actualisation’ a bit of a cringey buzz word but I agree we should search for that which gives us meaning. This is what raises us above the mere animals acting purely on instinct.

    Time will tell Frey, time will tell, I mean maybe In two years there is two millions MGTOW in this page alone.

    Maybe tomorrow keymaster say FBI is closing it down, maybe tomorrow I get mauled by a bear in my apartment… there is no bears here and I live in a third floor.

    We will see.

    I will keep doing what I want without some gash ruining it. They do that enough at work. Mission complete.

    I think there are limits especially in a modern world. However I am finding without much effort at all that as Red pill becomes more and more ingrained in me I am finding myself living parallel to society rather than as a part of it.

    Jordan Peterson has in some instances suggested that pursuit of happiness is a pointless affair, and instead, we should be pursing purpose.

    Peterson makes a good point as chasing happiness will only lead to unbridled hedonism. I disagree with the idea of “pursuing” a purpose. I believe one should make his own purpose, preferably one that you can adapt to sudden changes.

    Don't be a "provider" unless you are providing for yourself.

    Without reading too deeply into what we have said, I think we can come to an agreement that what we aim to accomplish are goals that we have made for our own personal interest.

    Whether you’re pursuing an interest,
    Learning a craft,
    Or creating things that worth living for.

    It all leads to the same point, we have an immense and arguably unnatural amount of free will at our disposal, so we’d better utilize it before it wastes away.
