Pick Your Battles

“He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight.”

-Sun Tzu

Introduction

Inspired by a section of yesterday’s article, I decided I would elaborate on the subject of picking your battles.  The Manosphere is full of articles about attacking problems and situations head on, but there are very few posts on when it’s best to sit back and patiently wait for the proverbial noose to tighten around your opposition’s neck.  Continue reading “Pick Your Battles”

Red Pill Authors: English History

The next entry in the series of red pill authors is a man who is known for his gripping historical fiction. He deals mainly with historical figures of the British Isles, which so happens to be my favorite historical topic seeing as how that’s where most of my family comes from. So here we go.

Bernard Cornwell

Looking back, of course, it was irresponsible, mad, forlorn, idiotic, but if you don’t take chances then you’ll never have a winning hand, and I’ve no regrets.

Pretty Little Lies

“People like to say that the conflict is between good and evil. The real conflict is between truth and lies.”

– Don Miguel Ruiz

Introduction

A lot of the ills that the Red Pill community face every day are based off a plethora of topics that have either been purposely misconstrued or downright fabricated out of thin air in an effort to destroy the traditional family structure.  These lies and falsehoods have had serious implications for any man seeking to start and raise a stable family with them as the head of the household with their wife as their second in command.  To an extent, most modern women have been at least partially indoctrinated with some of these lies and as we covered earlier this week, some are far beyond redemption.

When Dread Game Doesn’t Work

Introduction

A while back, one of our readers discussed a personal situation where the principles of Dread Game did not work for him.  If I remember correctly, his personal experience led him to surmise that Dread Game was a flawed system and does not work.  Today, we’re going to look into this topic a bit deeper and determine what went wrong and the red flags you should be on the look out for. Continue reading “When Dread Game Doesn’t Work”

Why Do Men Need Dread Game?

A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm,
She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
She gets up while it is still night;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.
She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
-Proverbs 30: 10-18

Introduction

To many new members to the Red Pill or Manosphere, the idea of Dread Gaming your wife brings about mixed emotions. While the initial principles actually seem harmless and rather productive, the idea of “dreading” and “gaming” your wife comes across as manipulative, shady, and coercive. I have mentioned in previous installments of this series that the steps prescribed are intended to restore balance to a marriage, it is still often met with apprehension by many newcomers who aren’t fully acquainted with the intent of the process.

In this article, we’re going to discuss what caused the rise of systems such as Dread Game, the Red Pill, and the Manosphere as a whole.

Moving Beyond the Basics

An apt comment from one our readers spurred me into digging into this topic a little further since it ties in really well with my post on Transcending the Red Pill: Continue reading “Moving Beyond the Basics”

On Keeping Morale High

 

This past January, I took a new position at a very large company.  It is a high stress, very demanding job that I knew I could get through if I dealt with it and didn’t give up.  At times I was very irritable, tired, and generally wiped out.  Being a leader means keeping morale high when things are going crazy.  Today I’ll share my experience on how your behavior, mood, and demeanor affect those who look to you as a leader, and shine some light on what I did to get through the stressful times.

Transcending the Red Pill

To preface this article, I would not consider myself a Red Pill guru, though I have been part of the Red Pill community conversing with many knowledgeable men for 3 to 4 years now.  I still have many topics to both learn and master, but during my digital travels I have noticed something that has troubled me.

Throughout many sites and platforms, men gather to discuss issues such as game/frame, fitness, politics, religion, and finances.  This is all well and good, but there always seems to be an underlying cynicism on many of the sites Continue reading “Transcending the Red Pill”

The Need to Fly Solo

Marriage can be tricky at times because you are constantly around your wife, especially if you have kids.  I’ve noticed a fundamental flaw in a majority of married men and its that they spend all of their free time with their wife and children.  Being there for them as a provider and protector is part and parcel of being a father/husband, but you need to spend time by yourself.  We’ll go over what happens when you don’t have time for yourself, things you can do when you’re alone to have a positive impact on your life, and how to assert your wants/needs in your relationship without having to get into an argument.
