Red Pill ExampleHow much Dan Bilzerian understands. (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by nabosch

Came across a Larry King interview with Dan Bilzerian, everything you’d expect out of the guy. Pure RP gold. Link to the interview

 

“It’s like, if a hot girl goes to the bar and she gets hit on 10 times she can go home and sleep like a baby and not hookup with anybody. But if she goes to the bar and no body pays attention to her and nobody talks to her then she almost like has to hookup with somebody to feel validated a little bit.”

“I was at a club and had one girl that I flew down that I used to date but decided that we should just be friends because she wanted a relationship. I had another girl that I had been sleeping with for a couple years that was living with her boyfriend so she was kinda like my actual date but I couldn’t be seen with her so I had the other girl that I could take to events."  

Decided to just be friends when she wanted a relationship. Girls always trying to secure a high SMV man, but why settle when you’re on top? Sleeping with another girl that was living with a boyfriend. Beta bucks and Alpha fucks.

 

What’s something that people get wrong about you?

“I think a lot of people think that I’m just fucked up all the time, that I’m drinking all the time”

Do you drink a lot?

“No, no I really don’t. No I actually don’t drink to much at all. For me I always went out to get laid you know? So like a lot of guys when they go out they need to drink so that they’re more relaxed so they can pickup chicks, but I just got to a point where I just didn’t really have to work at all.”

There’s no need to waste money and calories on alcohol when you don’t need it. Sure it’s nice to have a drink at the bar but no need to get hammered thinking that’s going to help you walk out with anything above a 5.

 

What are you embarrassed to admit you watch or enjoy?

“I’m not really too embarrassed by much, I always just kinda put my cards on the table and accept me for who I am kinda deal.”

What TRP is at it’s core. Being a high value man confident in himself, not afraid to put his cards on the table.

 

Do you feel like you use women?

“I feel like a lot of times girls are using me. A lot of times girls use me to get back at their boyfriends or piss off an ex or, you know I get used all the time. It’s kind of crazy but I can’t really get to upset about that”

AWALT

 

How often do you let yourself be vulnerable?

“Definitely not that often”

 

Do you ever want to just settle down?

“Um sometimes, at the end of a long weekend maybe”

35 and top of his game why stop now?

I've always been fascinated by the snowball effect of social status.

You inherit a fuckton of money from your father so you'll never need to worry about going broke or needing to work a day in your life. You then make a "career" playing cards (something people do for recreation) so you get yourself in the public eye. Then you start living flashy. Girl A sees the yacht, private plane, luxurious resort and decides she wants a piece. So she's in the photo with him. Girl B sees Girl A just got another 10,000 followers on instagram, so she wants in too. Before you know it you're taking photos with 50 models in the background.

But this made me laugh yesterday.

[–]themidnightfox 85 points86 points  (3 children)

You should listen to the podcast he did with Joe Rogan. Pretty eye opening and shows somewhat of a different side of him and gives color to his backstory.

[–]0x8d1355 41 points42 points  (0 children)

Since you mentioned the podcast but did not provide a link:
[Youtube] Joe Rogan Experience #857 - Dan Bilzerian.

[–]dCLIFFb 31 points32 points  (1 child)

This should be higher, he outlines his entire life story. There's way too much speculation in this thread. IMO he's earned his status, but listen to the podcast and decide for yourselves.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I listened to all or a good portion of that status and I was impressed. He's smarter than people think and knows how to market himself.

[–]prodigy2throw 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It's really a case study on social status engineering. Amazing really

[–][deleted] 133 points134 points  (214 children)

Dan Bilzerian is awesome. Haters are gonna hate, but he's smarter than people think he is. He literally set his life up in a way so that he's doing a bunch of cool shit and gets laid constantly. He also has a badass beard.

Oh yeah, I'm am reading some of the backlash from that photo and it's hilarious. I mean do people realize that was just a photo shoot, to have a little fun?

[–]1GroundhogLiberator 214 points215 points  (208 children)

He literally set his life up in a way so that he's doing a bunch of cool shit and gets laid constantly.

If you had $100M+ you could piece this together just as easily.

[–]Hammerhead9 208 points209 points  (24 children)

exactly why this guy has no valuable lessons

[–]Galbert123 199 points200 points  (6 children)

Agreed. Entertaining, yes. Relatable, no. This guy has all the money and free time in the world. You could work your balls off your whole life and not have a a fraction of that kind of wealth.

[–]metalhead4 68 points69 points  (0 children)

Dan what do you want to be when you grow up?

Hugh Hefnar on steroids.

Okay....

2) money are gooooood

[–]GIGANTIC_NIGGER_DICK 53 points54 points  (4 children)

DBs dad was charged with insider trading. That's where the 100 M came from in the first place

[–]32643264 37 points38 points  (0 children)

He's laundering his father's money through high stakes poker games. However, I'm sure he has made a shit ton of money through his IG fame etc.

In terms of his lifestyle, I'm a big fan. Dude is top of the food chain.

[–]Endorsed ContributorFLFTW16 21 points22 points  (171 children)

If you had $100M+ you could manage this just as easily.

DB is ripped. He put a ton of time and effort into training. Money has nothing to do with that.

There are plenty of billionaires who are overweight and in ill health, who don't do fun stuff. Bill Gates and Warren Buffet come to mind. Those are two beta chumps that didn't use their wealth for fun at all. Warren Buffet actually brags about eating a mcdonalds egg mcmuffin for breakfast, costing him only $3.50 or so.

It's important for guys not to fall into the trap of "hand waving excuses." Well, if I had that money, I could do XYZ so easily! A better question is what are you doing with the assets you have right now? A guy could spend $100 on a used guitar and learn to play to be more social/cool. Or he could day dream about what he would do will the millions he will never have. You could say how easy it is to have personal trainers and your own gym when you have millions, while some guy with NOTHING in his bank account gets on the floor and does crunches to get ripped, costing him nothing.

People criticize DB. I don't get it. What does that get you? It's so pointless to be bitter or resentful of people who had a leg up on you. His success does not impact you or me negatively at all. Learn from his example in any way you can and use that knowledge to improve your own situation.

[–]BestSC86 165 points166 points  (32 children)

YOU do realize one of the major differences be between your trust fund baby and Gates and Buffet, right?

They BOTH FREAKING BUILT THEIR EMPIRES by working insane hours, investing, researching and doing what the TRP claims should be the mission of a real man.

This dude basically has done shit but use his families' money and bought a boat full of pussy with it.

I am not a huge Buffet or Gates fan myself but I am smart enough to know that at the end of the day...they will be remembered as titans of their eras and fields while his dude will die unremembered likely from either a drug overdose or a drinking episode or from a STD.

I have met a bunch of these trusters and they all are entitled pricks who girls love because of the namemoney. They also are usually insufferable jacksasses to most people around them.

[–]Luckyluke23 16 points17 points  (1 child)

all dan has done is use social media to his advantage

[–]hb8only 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Exactly!! They were working long hours ad this piece of shit was lifting with best fit trainers

[–]Endorsed ContributorFLFTW16 19 points20 points  (14 children)

You make a valid point about the self-built empire vs the inherited empire. Here is my rebuttal: Bilzerian won the birth lottery. You can't fault (or praise) a man for something totally out of his control.

That being said, do you approve of how DB has used his wealth and privilege? Would you use it the same way if you were in his shoes? There are many trust fund babies. I have heard a few stories myself from these types in New York City. Neurotic, self-loathing. Some of them are so mal-adjusted they launch themselves off their penthouses and splatter the pavement below. Inheritance is not destiny.

The point I'm driving at is that every man has his inheritance, something some other man will be envious of. Inheritance can be spent and it can be squandered. Most of the users here were born/live in the USA/Europe, some of the richest places on earth and in the richest time period in all of human history. Some of you are tall. Some of you have money or the means to earn it. And all of us live in a time when feminism has made pussy incredibly cheap and easy to come by. We all have an inheritance, and it does no good to look at DB with eyes of envy. Take what you can learn from and forget about the rest.

they will be remembered as titans of their eras and fields while his dude will die unremembered likely from either a drug overdose or a drinking episode or from a STD.

That's great for them, and they are probably quite happy with their lives. I wouldn't trade places with them. In terms of sexual success would you rather be Dan Bilzerian at his prime or Bill Gates in his prime? Marriage 2.0 is a legal-bureaucratic tool of the matriarchy. Whatever DB's faults are, he is having fun with his life; that is an admirable goal for every man.

[–]BestSC86 41 points42 points  (2 children)

You missed the point.

This dude is exactly like a thousands of these dudes in America......they inherited family money and spent their lives living the Newport News, Palm Springs, and Florida society circuit. Sure they slay pussy because of their money, family name and breeding, but only a thirsty sexless beta would believe that being a pussy slayer is the epitome of a life well lived. Look I know that when you are on the outside desperate to stick you dick in pussy, it becomes an obsession to idolize those for whom it comes easy and are sticking it in more than a few a year...but it isn't memorable or indicative of a life well lived.

Hell, dudes in West LA running drugs and living in squalor are fucking as much pussy as Dan in a year...that is till they get gunned down in a driveby.....but nobody is aching for those dude's life.

I was simply making the POINT...that you don't compare these soft trust funds babies with people like Gates and Buffet who spent freaking years building a freaking trillion dollar empire and reputation. Don't know about Gates but Buffet was a man's man back in his heyday....shouldn't think that he was always 70 as you see him today.

[–]analyticaltoafault 22 points23 points  (2 children)

You can certainly fault a man for becoming an adult and not taking his life's gift and becoming a man of character as well.

Marcus Aurelius is a perfect example.

[–]Endorsed ContributorFLFTW16 13 points14 points  (1 child)

You can certainly fault a man for becoming an adult and not taking his life's gift and becoming a man of character as well. Marcus Aurelius is a perfect example.

That requires too much judgment. There are too many competing systems of belief and values. What is a 'man of character' anyway? A man who owns himself and is enjoying his life? A man who builds an empire? A family man? Can a wandering bum with nothing to his name be looked up to for his wisdom and character?

The stoics, as far as I understand them, regard criticizing others to be, in general, a waste of your time, attention, and energy. Those things are better spent improving yourself and reflecting on one's own achievements and short comings, because you are the only one capable of knowing what you truly want, and whether you are on the right path to achieving it or not.

      [–]BestSC86 11 points12 points  (1 child)

      So the lesson you take from the red pill is be born with loads of money......

      Oh well, perhaps you should start a adjunct reddit with a new sidebar..it would be much simpler to read.

      1. Be born with boatloads of money.
      2. Lift
      3. Spend loads of money buying the attention of chicks with yachts, parties and trips.
      4. Post on social media.
      5. Slay pussy.
      6. Die.

      Of course, most followers will give up at #1 because without #1 the rest of the Dan's philosophy is unworkable.

      Nobody is hating on freaking Dan....the post waas about the STUPIDITY of castigating GatesBuffet as compared to this freaking loser. But it certainly highlights the number of people who will never make it because they would be unwilling to put in the hard work to get resources to live a similar life to this Dan dude unless they were lucky to be born with it.

      Oh no, working hours and building a business or company is so beta, but I want loads of money so how do I alpha my way to money......

      [–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (6 children)

      What people are pointing out is that it doesnt matter how he behaves or acts. No matter what philosophy he subscribes too hes gonna get tons of pussy becsuse of his money. Look up to someone who gets that much poon because of what he does not what he was given

        [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        I read something about what you are saying about people like Buffet and Gates. When they earn so much that money is taken out of the equation of happiness, they become something else. With not a specified goal in sight they just work and becoming richer and richer just to see the number on bank account growing. When Buffet brags about buying 3.50 dollar egg muffin its not because he is cheapskate, it is because he has disconnected himself from the percieved truth that money is a way to happiness, for him being the best/richest etc is the happiness. They will either die as the world happiest men or as the most misrable as they realise that it was not worth it.

        [–]1GroundhogLiberator 115 points116 points  (38 children)

        DB is ripped. He put a ton of time and effort into training. Money has nothing to do with that.

        How can you say that? His money gives him 40-60 hours per week that the rest of us have to spend working. He has access to elite trainers and can eat professionally-prepared high quality meals. If he juices he can do it under a top-notch doctor's supervision. He can get as much sleep as he needs. He has nothing to stress over.

        He has no excuse not to be in peak condition.

        Every week I'm in the gym about 15 hours across 6 days. I'd be there 5 hours per day if I didn't have to worry about money.

        [–]Stormtech5 9 points10 points  (0 children)

        Speaking of sleep I'm at work now on about 2.5 hours sleep and many nights lately of 4 hours sleep. That's what you get with a wife and kid though

        No, you wouldn't. You would be a lazy fuck because you wouldn't need to work or train a fay in your life. You would have bitches to fuck until your dying breath and money to spend, no point in working on building muscles to improve you SMV and social status. You would have that by default.

        PS- I'm not talking about you personally, but generalize how almost all people would act in that situation.

        [–]1GroundhogLiberator 1 point2 points  (3 children)

        I'd let myself hit 12% body fat at the worst

        [–]aDrunkenWhaler 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        Most people are fat and lazy. Those that work out do it almost entirely to be more attractive to find a mate. Those that do it mainly for themselves are a tiny fraction.

        Give money and power to the first 2 categories and they will become fatter and lazier in an instant, since they will have no incentive to better themselves.

        [–]eylizo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        God same. Can't imagine being even slightly chubby

        Dan is around 15% body fat and looks great.

        [–]FractalFactorial 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        With unlimited access to professionally cooked food every single day of my life not to mention some expensive as hell wine and scotch I'd balloon up like a mother fucker.

        I mean really, who would want to spend any more time at the gym than what's needed for basic maintenance if money wasn't an issue? 15 hours already sounds pretty excessive imo.

        [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (23 children)

        You don't have to spend much time in the gym to get ripped. I lift weights three times a week and keep my workouts under 40 minutes. I am about 177 lbs and I recently was able to bench 345 lbs. No excuses.

        [–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (8 children)

        Ahahahahaaha ok dude Yea I'm gonna go ahead and call bullshit on that. 345 even at 181 puts you in the highest bracket in strength standards (elite). And if you were aware people at the elite level spend hours every day at the gym while on the juice too

        But you did it under 40 minutes because no excuses! Who knew willpower was all you needed

        Damn what's up with insecure dudes making lifts up online so much...

        [–]Endorsed ContributorFLFTW16 3 points4 points  (3 children)

        How can you say that? His money gives him 40-60 hours per week that the rest of us have to spend working.

        I'm not arguing that you are factually/logically wrong. Of course you are correct. I'm arguing that this is a woe is me attitude and that this is not constructive for a man to have. I used to suffer from a woe is me attitude and it wasn't until I abandoned that perspective that I started really making progressive on myself.

        [–]1GroundhogLiberator 62 points63 points  (2 children)

        This isn't a woe is me or a sour grapes situation. I'd trade lives with him in a heartbeat.

        I just think it's absurd that people are putting this guy on a pedestal. He's not some kind of self-made millionaire. He's a Kardashian. Famous for being famous.

              How long do you plan to live? Enjoy life now. There will be a time when it's less enjoyable, then become Gates. Then you will have gained worldly knowledge and opened your eyes to the world, and the contribution you make will be stronger.

              Yes im sure bill gates would still be doing all the amazing work hes been doing the last 30 years if he'd spent the first 30 years of his life chasing pussy and playing poker looking to be the alpha male. You are extremely correct.

                Yeah seriously. I like banging chicks like the next guy, but you can't tell me that Bill Gates did nothing with his wealth. Plus, he seems like a guy who has a different idea of fun than most guys here who don't even have .01% of his wealth.

                [–]BRINGMEDATASS 13 points14 points  (2 children)

                Lmao that's still 8.5 million dollars. With that money in the bank at 3% interest you'd have 250k to go nuts on all the blow and hookers you could responsibly handle. I honestly believe there are 0 redditors on this sub with that kind of cash. But yeah fun is relative.

                [–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

                Exactly. 8.5 million dollars to your name, while making 250K is crazy money. Heck, as a single guy, I would feel like I'm a baller with an 80K salary, as long as I'm in a decently nice apartment.

                Plus, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett never seemed like the party types.

                A valid criticism.

                He took shortcuts. There is still a worthwhile lesson in that. Those shortcuts are available to almost any man, if he wants to take them. One of the most lauded users on here, GayLubeOil, has posted extensively on the topic.

                The real point of my comment was to call out what I read as a 'woe is me' reaction about DB having a lot of money. Thanks for your comment.

                [–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (3 children)

                Steroids aren't only used as a shortcut, once you get to a certain level you literally cannot progress without the use of gear. For some people that level is lower than others, it all depends on genetics and natural test levels.

                Regardless, what's wrong with using a shortcut? What lesson is there on that?

                Oh, I didn't mean to imply there is one. Merely pointing at that shortcuts exist.

                A fat guy can get his stomach stapled. A short guy can wear lifts to appear taller. Some guys use prostitutes/call girls to gain abundance mentality.

                One man's shortcut is another man's "trick" or "strategy." As long as a guy isn't deluding himself I am amoral about such things.

                There is nothing wrong with using shortcuts. As long as your objective about it. At the base of deciding to do anything for a reward is the lessons you learn along the way. If something comes easy, the lessons that some argue are the point of the progress, get missed.

                If Gates and Buffet are the definition of beta is then count me in. Seems to some being alpha is what I would call being a shallow attention-whoring self centred prick. If you choose to not spin plates or look like Rambo then you are beta? Is your life is not primarily driven by how much pussy you can get then you are beta? Seems theres a lot of thirst around here....pathetic.

                [–]douchetinc 14 points15 points  (5 children)

                Bill Gates funded research that led to the discovery of a filtration system that can turn shit into potable water, with the intention of providing millions of suffering individuals in Africa clean drinking water. What a fucking beta, right? He probably did that for "female validation." So beta.

                Clearly, a spoiled brat who spends ridiculous amounts of money to surround himself with vapid, std-riddled, gold-digging fame whores, with no self-respect, is living a more worthy life.

                Dan Bilzerian's greatest contribution to humanity is to infect these bitches with aids to ensure that bad DNA never replicates, and no children are raised by these cum dumpsters.

                Any moron with money can fuck a 10.

                [–]FriendlyJack 9 points10 points  (2 children)

                First of all, it sounds like you want to bang the guy. Second of all, you're probably in your teens or early twenties and missing the big picture. That's fine.

                I have nothing against Bilzerian and I'm happy that he can have a cool life. Shit, I wish I had that kind of money. I would have the same kind of fun with it for a while. I don't resent him for having a great time, but let's all be real here.

                Comparing Gates and Buffett to him is silly and ignorant. Even one percent of their successes completely eclipse what he has achieved, which really isn't that much in the grand scheme of things. There's a lot more to life than partying and fucking random bitches.

                This is especially true when you compare him to Bill Gates. Never mind creating the system pretty much every computer on the planet runs on. The things he's done for humanity after leaving Microsoft have secured him a place in the history books forever.

                Do your research before posting things that make you look like a dumb-ass. It's pretty much impossible to talk shit about Bill Gates, even if you're an Apple phaggot.

                Yeah he's a quiet guy who's a little weird. Most super-geniuses are. When you have that kind of brain-power, you have a hard time relating to the average person, and vice versa.

                His achievements make him pretty much a real-life version of super-man.

                Money has nothing to do with having the free time and capital to spend on weight training. Trp at its finest, folks.

                How exactly does anyone learn to better themselves by studying a manchild with a silver spoon shoved down his throat?

                Jesus, just looked at the rest of the comment chain. People aren't tearing down his success, they are saying that he's nothing special without his incredibly rare advantages. You're so concerned with defending your point of view that you're missing the bigger point; there is literally nothing to learn from this human being that we don't already know. The post was a garbage contribution.

                I miss the real contributors that really made this place special. I don't respect the EC flair anymore, too many clowns have it now.

                This is where TRP loses me.

                Ffs sake you're not some social fucking leach. If you are a billionaire, you'd rather be fat and doing great charity than be ripped and just banging models.

                Jeez TRP, life isn't just about banging women. Warren Buffet isn't a "beta cuck" because he is fat and isn't fucking 10,000 women. He is building a legacy that will last generations. Things like "beta cuck" are applicable to the salaried employee. Not people worth more than the economies of entire countries.

                Some of you folks need to pull your heads out of vaginas.

                As for Dan, he doesn't owe anyone anything but I do judge the man for using his wealth for hedonistic idiocy than doing something actual good.

                Lol Gates and Buffet are beta chumps? They are titans who revolutionized their industries, ale literally saving millions of lives, and will be remembered for centuries. This fucktard is barely known now and certainly will disappear into obscurity as soon as he gets old/dies. Think what you will of DB's lifestyle, but he's nowhere near the level of Gates or Buffet.

                [–]pateuvasiliu 2 points3 points  (16 children)

                DB is ripped

                If I didn't need to do anything in my entire life to get an education/money because I was already rich I'd look like Arnie. Being ripped doesn't mean much when you have all the time in the world and the money to support the best diets/trainers.

                To me it has nothing to do with sourgrapes. Dan is hilarious and watching his lifestyle is definitely envy-porn of some sort.

                That said, its about being realistic. Dan is not a self-made man from the looks of things, and I'd warrant that he makes more money of instagram than he has off poker at this point tbh.

                He is absolutely the play-boy ideal, but he is not a good role model because there's no path to follow. Dan is something of a problem because he represents a near unattainable end-goal that people lust after. Like almost everything else people want his stuff rather than the hard work it takes to GET his stuff.

                Maybe they don't want to live like DB?!?if I was a multi millionaire like him I would honestly not be paying groups of women to come hang out with me on my boat..sure I might have done this for a few years in my 20s but it would have gotten very old fast..doing it into my mid 30s I'd just feel almost sad tbh..the thought of paying women to hang out with me is cringe

                Easy to talk when you're at the top. Let's see him start from zero and the climb to the top and till then I'll consider him of substance. He seems pretty dry through the podcast though.

                [–]askmrcia 7 points8 points  (0 children)

                He was a trust fund baby. I'm guessing now he makes his money through investments (Im sure he has top notch advisers) and cameo movie roles.

                He probably makes money here and there for showing up a clubs and bars to help bring in traffic. All of these are speculation because he really doesn't have an actual job or run any businesses.

                [–]Tongue37 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                But he paid for all of that attention! That's the part about him that makes me cringe a little..I would not like the feeling of having to pay women to be with me and then taking pics of us together and acting like its some badge of coolness..

                To be fair, it wasn't really his dad. It was government gibs. He went through seal training twice and served on a few ships but got injured from BUDS and collected disability. He talked about it on JRE

                [–]NMF_ 1 point2 points  (1 child)

                Don't shoot the messenger, but I heard that he doesn't actually get laid that much, that it's all an act. Girls do use him for the things he said, but I thought the secret was that all of the fronting didn't actually lead to him getting laid as much as you would think.

                Just wanted to throw it out there that its hard to take this guy serious when he is supposedly a "professional poker player" but seeing him play uncovers the truth. His poker "career" is a money laundering cover for his daddy's stolen money; the guy is a fraud, a low life.

                Yes and no. He has the money and the extravagant lifestyle, but he's also in control since he's unplugged in the way he sees women and understands the power dynamics between men and women. This is not always the case with wealthy people, since many tend to think that because you can buy anything, you must be respected/loved/fuckable. That's a turn off for women since it's a display of beta traits.

                The lesson to draw from this guy is his ability to be confident in who he is and what he says. Regardless of his status and how he achieved it, we know him because of his unapologetic arrogance and bravado through which he lives his life. That's what makes him a role model.

                [–]billponderoas 7 points8 points  (0 children)

                You know, these guys who read life advice from people who were living in completely other time and civilization?

                Like, reading wise advice from Buddhist monks. You know what, those fuckers were MONKS living in another time and civilization mediating half of their lifes.

                Or Dale Carnegie, who is also mentioned here. Of course, being nice works for him. He is Dale Carnegie. His very important technique in handling people is remembering their names. I dare you, remember names of all people you meet and look how precisely nobody gives a fuck. You are not Dale.

                Or...Dan Bilzerian? I think guy is cool. Got absolutely nothing on him. But he is famous millionaire. How far you guys think you will go, listening his advice?

                If you need to listen to anyone, that should be someone who had problems similar to yours and solved them, in my opinion.

                What the fuck is gold about Bilzerian, I am wondering.

                [–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (4 children)

                  If there is one thing you can learn from guys like him is how utterly disposable something becomes once you have it in abundance. This guy is redpilled about women because he sees them as purely an object. If something is being given freely it becomes disposable.

                  Now think that women have this. What this millionaire, high status guy has. The average woman has this type of attention fromthe opposite sex. Not the models, the celebrities, the very good-looking ones. But the boring plain janes...

                  This is why I say that men will only be truly redpill once they have experienced this sort of abundance. Once you see what women do behind the good guy's back the redpill with be pushed down your throat.

                  If you still want to get married in this day and age you need to go look for some professional help, the way I see it, its insanity.

                  This guy is redpilled about women because he sees them as purely an object.

                  Seeing women as objects isn't the point of RP. It can be a result of one's increased awareness about the nature of women, but it's certainly not the end goal, nor should it be as it's a deleterious attitude towards life and others. Just because women are so unconscious that they view everyone else as objects (with the occasional exception of their children), doesn't mean that we should do the same. By taking the approach that we should objectify others (and women in particular) as objects as a response to their objectification of us we simply lower ourselves to their level - which is a lack of consciousness and self-mastery. Why would we want to do that?

                  Perhaps the better option would be to retain our ability to see/respect others as human beings with souls and just be more selective about the women with whom we choose to share anything other than a purely sexual relationship. If a given woman is not at least desiring of increasing her level of consciousness, learning how to see others as human beings with souls, and thus developing the ability to appreciate others for who they are then you don't extend your soul and your love to that woman. That doesn't mean that you see her as an object, it just means that you recognize and appreciate her as she is and limit your interaction with her to a level that she is prepared to understand. You may certainly appreciate the beauty of her soul even - just from a distance, and with the understanding that she is unaligned with it and therefore likely has little consciousness, no self-mastery, and none of the true self-confidence that flows from both and will therefore act out of the innate, the sub-conscious, the ego, and the overwhelming insecurity that flows form those parts of us.

                  [–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (0 children)

                  The average woman does NOT get this attention. If you were born an ugly chick you're done. If you're born pretty but don't take of yourself you're done. If you're born pretty and take care of yourself... Awesome, but you too would be done as old age hits you in your late 30s and that's being pretty conservative. And in any case if you don't go out at all, if you don't have a social circle, if you don't have a life that exposes you to attractive guys, the best you can hope for is to settle with an average guy in an average job.

                  Confirmation bias makes us think that the average girl is a twenty thirty year old blonde who's a little puffy but still an HB6 and most guys would hit her up. Statically speaking the average woman is in her mid forties from an Asian country (China) with a low income, single, and working a day job to make ends meet.

                  I think it's fair to say that girls are playing a different game than us guys, but it's not fair to say that their game is necessarily easier than us. There are more things within our control than within theirs.

                  Important to note he was on large amounts of steroids for many years. He maintained that large amount of muscle mass while also consuming incredible amounts of cocaine, MDMA, and alcohol. Those drugs eat away at muscle. You could argue that his heart attacks at a fairly young age (early 30's?) are in large part to that. These days I hear he has to stick with TRT for life because his receptors and natural hormones are fucked.

                  His heart attack, based on the account he gave on JRE, was simply cocaine-induced. He sounded sooooo proud of himself, too... except that we get at least a handful of retards just like him in the ER, every single week.

                  "Life is about set up." I've seen this interview and that one line spoke to Me. He hated the whole courting process so he set it up so that him and his boys had tons of girls around him all the time. He doesn't need to build rapport and the girls come and go as they please. If you want to hear how he did it, watch the interview. He may be a trust fund baby, but he'd smart. I can't say I don't admire him in that regard.

                  Where's the objectivity? You're speculating on his character like a bunch of betas leaning up against the bar judging a guy on the dancefloor. Since when does having money(whether it was handed to you or not) make you an alpha male?

                  Whether you're rich or not, there are guys who know what to do with five girls in a hot tub, and guys who don't. Dan is the former and you should look up to him for that.

                  If any of them actually listened to dan's conversation with joe rogan they'd realize hes a stand up guy who would be super fun to party with and goes way out of his way to help out his buddies.

                  He just gets a lot of hate because he leads a lifestyle most guys can't even imagine.

                  I'd love to party with dan.

                  But then again i'm not a sex starved desperate loser.

                  He was on Joe Rogans podcast as well on youtube, great insight.

                  Dan is a great example of how to use social media to his advantage. As he says himself, he has built up his image so that nowadays he "doesn't have to work" to get chicks. Notice that he implies he used to have approach like a normal guy before he got famous.

                  [–]beautyqueen1790 7 points8 points  (0 children)

                  Dan Birzerian is cool and all and sure most women flock to him but he isn't necessary the ideal man.

                  What the real lesson I think for RP'ers is to realise the importance of money. Even if u you frame and etc, if u dont have the minimal amount of resources, you aint getting high quality girls. TDLR; get money

                  [–]logicalthinker1 5 points6 points  (0 children)

                  ehhh, if you're good looking, good body, good personality, etc. you don't need to be super rich. Don't don't be a pathetic fast food worker.

                  [–]RedPillWintergreen 5 points6 points  (1 child)

                  Sure you can. My neighbor is broke, has no real job, but is somewhat good-looking and plays in a popular local reggae band so gets tons of girls. A friend of mine lives at home with his mom, drives Uber to make enough money to buy booze, but he makes low budget indie movies with another friend and he pulls attractive girls too. If you think you need money to get pussy you need to go back to "Alpha Fucks, Beta Bux".

                  [–]botsquash 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                  Sure you do fine as a broke ass, it's just easier and better when you have money as well. Now imagine your broke neighbor wasn't broke and earned big bucks and still had rp knowledge, he could do much better

                  [–]anon2777 5 points6 points  (0 children)

                  dude is ass at poker though lol

                  [–]victor_knight 6 points7 points  (0 children)

                  Dan Bilzerian wouldn't be Dan Bilzerian if he was fat, though... and there's a RP lesson in that too.

                  [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

                  Watch his Joe Rogan podcast it's awesome. Dans a smart guy contrary to popular belief and just does what makes him happy

                  [–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (5 children)

                  Guys,

                  Listen to the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast with Dan. It's absolutely amazing. I can't recall the number, a google search and you're set.

                  Also, while I'm not saying this is true or false, on the podcast he did say for certain all of his money came from poker. Believe him or not.

                  [–]nabosch[S] 6 points7 points  (3 children)

                  Seriously the jealousy here is ridiculous

                  [–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (2 children)

                  Right? If you took that energy of complaining someone is better than you, you'd be at his level.

                  He doesn't care what an anonymous redditor thinks about him. He's too busy blocking your girl on snapchat because she won't stop harassing him.

                  [–]ZT3V3N 5 points6 points  (0 children)

                  I really do hate how much having a trust fund makes you a "trust fund baby living off daddies money" stereotype. It's not their fault their parents were wealthy and fucken smart enough to set their kids up.

                  [–]Azzmo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                  That is what it looks like to feel no false guilt.

                  [–]wendysNO1wcheese 2 points3 points  (4 children)

                  Never even heard of the dude. What does he do? How did he get to where he is?

                  [–]M474D0R 9 points10 points  (2 children)

                  He does nothing but spend daddy's money and post about it on social media. He got to where he is by spending daddy's money and posting about it on social media.

                  [–]wendysNO1wcheese 2 points3 points  (1 child)

                  Figures. I wonder how much them broads cost to have hang around.

                  [–]M474D0R 5 points6 points  (0 children)

                  they do it for free now because he's famous and established. im sure there were some pros in his pics at SOME point tho

                  [–]mcr00sterdota 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                  Can't stand this guy because he hasn't really done anything amazing to become rich and famous (besides daddy's money). Although I will admit this guy is Alpha as fuck.

                  [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                  Having fuck you money tends to do that.

                  I don't have a problem with the guy, how he got his money and how he's living his life.

                  I do however have a problem where in a thread, subreddit whatever you want to call it that's about self development, people are using his situation putting it under a microscope and prescribing it as an example of going zero to hero.

                  [–]casemodsalt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                  Who wouldn't want to bang hot chicks if they are rich, fit and good looking

                  [–]Endorsed ContributorWoujo 13 points14 points  (2 children)

                  Came across a Larry King interview with Dan Bilzerian, everything you’d expect out of the guy. Pure RP gold.

                  Dude when did feminine, narcissistic, superficial, materialistic attention whores become RP idols?

                  You guys are being cucked by the mainstream media and corporate machine to worship dumbass, mentally ill, weak men like Trump and Bilzerian. These guys are NOT "red pill," whatever that even means anymore. The fact that the dude needs constant validation from strangers about how awesome his life is proves that he is a weak faggot.

                  As somebody else in this thread said, the only reason he gets to life the "red pill" life is because his daddy is rich. And he is too much of a fucking faggot to admit it, so he tells this obviously transparent lie that he made all the money playing poker.

                  I run in a pretty rich crowd in the city I am from and I know lots of wannabe Bilzerian rich guys. I can tell you for a fucking fact that these guys are dumb, emotional cucks. The girls around them are prostitutes and they are constantly getting hustled.

                  This guy's whole life is a fucking image so he's obviously not going to advertise the times when he gets hustled and played. And if he knows how to game bitches now, it's because he got hustled out of millions of dollars by prostitutes and learned some lessons.

                  Anybody who 1) believes anything Bilzerian or Trump says and 2) idolizes them is a fucking retard.

                  [–]BigGigantic13 6 points7 points  (1 child)

                  Lmao, Bilzerian is like the ultimate fucking douche in my opinion. He is nothing and would be even less of something without all of his daddy's money. There is nothing cool about this guy at all. He has people, guys and girls, hang around him because they use him for his money and entertainment. He's a loser piggybacking off of his daddy. There is nothing to learn here except that having tons of money brings out the mooches. Surprise surprise.

                  [–]Arnoux 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                  He also has a really good body and nice beard. I am sure, that majority of people on this subreddit doesn't have body like that. I have been working out for years and my body is not even close to his. Yes he is using steroids but that doesn't change the fact that my body is inferior :D

                  [–]mocket_ran 3 points4 points  (2 children)

                  People love to hate on this guy but why...he is doing whatever the fuck he wants> What surprises me most is why aren't more rich and famous dudes living this lifestyle...I sure would be.

                  [–]askmrcia 0 points1 point  (1 child)

                  hat surprises me most is why aren't more rich and famous dudes living this lifestyle

                  Two ways to answer this. A lot of pro athletes and young entertainers live like him.

                  Other millionaires choose not too because they know that's how you end up losing money and going broke.

                  [–]mocket_ran 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                  Yes agreed..valid points however I work in Hollywood and constantly work with people that I know are more than set for life in terms of money and they are stressed out and still working...not living the dream like this crazy fuck.

                  [–]dark_kniggit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                  His recent stop on Rogan was great too.

                  [–]kagetsuki23 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                  this dude know how to enjoy life.

                  [–]dustyh55 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                  AWALT? Not really, you're only taking into account the girls that are choosing to sleep with him. And they usually chose to sleep with him because of those qualities.

                  This reasoning is quite cyclical.

                  There are always women like that, but not AWALT, at least by any logical reasoning I'm aware of.

                  [–]RedPillWintergreen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                  I really don't know much about the man. I see his name pop up on social media from time to time. I think he is some sort of instagram star. Who cares? From reading comments on this thread I understand he inherited all his money. So to me that makes him like an HB10 born with the genetics of a symmetrical face and big tits. Someone to be aware of take advantage of but not someone to respect or learn anything from. Jamie Dimon, Hunter Harrison, Ray Dalio, James Mattis, etc. Those are what you call real killers.

                  [–]Neverd0wn 6 points7 points  (4 children)

                  OP knows he pays for those girls right?

                  [–]prodigy2throw 11 points12 points  (2 children)

                  FWIW I know a few girls who've been on his snaps. He really doesn't pay how you think. These girls meet him or they actually fly down to where he is and fuck him as long as he tags them on his Instagram. Yes he pays for food, they live with him and drink all his liquor and do all his drugs. But he has enough money so it's all trivial.

                  As far as I know, it's not an overt system where they charge him hourly or some arrangement. Millions of girls will fuck famous guys for free.

                  [–]AtlasAnt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                  From somebody who is good at poker, he really, really sucks at poker.

                  I highly doubt that he has been profitable long term.

                  [–]rpogami 4 points5 points  (0 children)

                  Not sure how anyone on this sub can relate to him. His father was a corporate raider who went to prison for various SEC violations. Dan is a socialite who pays women to hang in his entourage financed by his father.

                  [–]trippinallday 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                  Guy has definitely seen and done a lot. This is my favorite video of him, he makes his point very well: https://www.instagram.com/p/BRHWZ_zgmoj/

                  [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                  He is like a RSD 10th degree blackbelt.

                  [–]PranksterLad 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                  Question - He says he isn't a good role model for people of the younger generation - yet why are we praising him? I am just curious.

                  [–]sygede 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                  Yeah except like 5 people on this sub can probably achieve Dan's level.
