MetaI'm on a deletion rampage. Got something stupid to post? Don't waste your time. (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by Modredpillschool

Every once in a while we have a holiday weekend which marks the end of school for the kids and time away from the computer for the mods. What ensues is total chaos.

So, I've been popping on every few hours and deleting about a dozen or so posts at a time.

If you think you have something to say, make sure you've got a coherent point, that it's fleshed out properly, and that it's well-written and well-formatted. Make sure it's longer than a paragraph and says more than "Hey mannnn do it for you, ya know??? LOVE YOURSELF LOLOL111!!111"

I don't know if people just drank too much this weekend, or if we put a sign up on our door saying "retards now, please." But we're not interested in zen-ish platitudes like "learn to love yourself" and "you don't need no woman."

The fact is, we're here because we want to strive to be better. Inner game and monk mode are two over-used terms I hear too often on TRP that mostly translate to "how to procrastinate instead of meet women."

Fuck that noise. Inner peace is for complacent idiots. If you want inner peace (which I don't recommend), then fine, find it once you've fucked a hundred hotties on spring break. But if you haven't... you should feel inner turmoil. That's what drives you if you haven't yet achieved your goals. Want to fuck lots of hot women? The answer isn't ass-hat advice like "learn to be okay home alone eating chocolate chip ice cream on saturday."

I, personally, think the drive to success requires you to NEVER find total inner peace. Instead, embrace the desire and need to more and better. This is what the alphas at the top feel. They feel the sweet sweet high of success, which wears off quickly pushing them to reach even higher.

(Before the spergs jump in and start arguing, YES, success certainly gives you a happier and more full-filling life, but there should always be that drive to do more, better, faster and stronger.)

You have some actionable advice? Post away. Want to post examples of TRP in the world? Post away. Want to post "do it for yourself, you deserve it!!!" Head on over to /r/TwoXChromosomes where results don't matter.

I'm not giving out warnings, it's too much work. You'll know you posted total shit when your post goes missing and you got a one-day ban.

Earlier, I removed a post called "Practicing Good Consent" which basically took the stance that we're all rapists unless we ask over and over "can I touch the left quadrant of your nipple?" and "cant I now move my second finger into position during my finger thrust?"

So how do you practice good consent? Are there areas you need to work on? How do you communicate or seek out boundaries?

It's like we're at sensitivity training and need to be brain washed.

Fucking hell, obviously get consent before fucking a woman, but none of this mamby-pamby shit. Clearly a SJW thinking they can evangelize to us like a god damned missionary.

[–]evileddy 93 points94 points  (22 children)

"May I kiss you?" Is best thing you can do to turn a woman completely off.

They want you to grab them by the root of their hair, slam them up against a wall and kiss them hard.

[–]Battle-Scars 83 points84 points  (6 children)

Nothing gets them wetter than exercising my "white male privilege on their bodies"

[–]evileddy 55 points56 points  (5 children)

It must suck for most women these days.. going on three dates and the guy isn't making any moves so she has to kiss him and he pulls back saying "I'm not ready to get physical until I know you better"

[–]Battle-Scars 67 points68 points  (1 child)

I've actually used that sentence but only after massive escalation to the point of her knowing she's about to get fucked. The look on their face is hilarious for about 3 seconds, then a wry smile from you as you throw them over your shoulder and off to the bedroom.

[–]rp_newdawn 5 points6 points  (0 children)

lmfao I'm stealing that

[–]gjs628 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Now they know what it's like being a guy trying to get lucky with a woman playing hard-to-get. Not so much fun when you start losing at your own game, is it now ladies?

[–]Boovs4life 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I cringed because there are guys that actually do this

[–]Cookiest 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I did this to my first girlfriend right when things were heating up.

She laughed mercilessly at me. "Like, seriously?"

I never made that mistake again

[–]TRP117 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Even looking at the dumb romance movies I let my ex goad me into watching show this. If you're ever watching a movie that's a "chick flick" you'll notice that it contains spontaneous passionate sex, some of it rough and with no words only lust and desire.

Bottom line, actions not words.

[–]666Evo 25 points26 points  (0 children)

"can I touch the left quadrant of your nipple?"

"Oh dear. You see, my finger is quite large and your nipple is quite small. I seem to have touched a full 1 half of your nipple. I must apologise for my boorish behaviour and will report myself to the police for rape immediately."

[–]TRP VanguardHumanSockPuppet 14 points15 points  (4 children)

Sounds like a troll post masquerading as content. I'll be sure to keep my mouse hovering over the report button.

[–]2CHAD_J_THUNDERCOCK 6 points7 points  (3 children)

This stuff is taught to college students now. If 10% of them are believing it then we should expect to see these beliefs start creeping in and getting worse each year.

[–]TryDoingSomethingNew 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Unfortunately, and depressingly, you are so correct.

It's disgusting and should make any masculine (normal) male a bit sick to know.

[–]1Entropy-7[🍰] 6 points7 points  (2 children)

The closest I have come to this nonsense was after a good meal we cuddled on the couch and I asked "do you want to make love, fuck, or be completely dominated?"

She went for option 3 and we had a merry time, and this supports my theory that BDSM is your best defense in a "yes-means-yes" climate.

[–]TryDoingSomethingNew 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like how you smartly phrased-and framed-the question.

All the options you gave were still positive answers; just different "yes"s .

[–]aanarchist 11 points12 points  (8 children)

i read that i thought it was funny as hell, surely it was a satire? by the way if you're gonna go on a rampage, make sure to remove the amog faggots as well. this is trp, not high school.

[–]Senior Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I have a way of drawing them out of their basements.

[–]verify_account 8 points8 points [recovered]

I couldn't agree more. Evey time I read "well I'm still in high school" or "I'm only 17 now" I immediately close the thread.

[–]aanarchist 3 points4 points  (0 children)

no i meant when some chad wannabe tries to talk shit to someone on here, it makes me cringe.

[–]Mountin-man46 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dude gotta educate the young man. Just tell them to shut the fuck up if they start giving advice.

[–]Endorsed Contributorvandaalen 4 points5 points  (1 child)

obviously get consent before fucking a woman

I have never gotten explicit consent other than moaning or cheering when I put my dick in. I don't even know how that's supposed to work.

"May I furiously penetrate m'lady with my dick now?", or what? Maybe followed by tipping my condom? Or wearing something like this(NSFW)?

[–]TryDoingSomethingNew 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm a kind gentlesir who will respect your body and your personal space, m'lady. A man of class, no less, will treat you like a lady.

[–]MuhTriggersGuise 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Left quadrant is best quadrant.

[–]TryDoingSomethingNew 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm curious, when you removed it, did you also send a message to the poster? To let them know how ridiculous their post was.

It seems that perhaps a post like theirs would be worth something to at least laugh at and ridicule. But I respect you for cleaning out the trash and sparing us that "consent' bullshit (male-shaming/control).

[–]G_Petronius 74 points74 points [recovered]

I stopped reading this subreddit a month ago because every 99 threads out 100 are feel good bullshit. It used to be a place for tough love and actionable advice, now it's losers telling each other they're all going to make it and/or it doesn't matter if they do.

The trend's been this for a while but lately all the posts have become like this, not just most. I'd come to the subreddit and go through the first two pages, nothing but people patting themselves and each other on the back.

I hope you can bring it back, but I think the chemo's going to have to be much harsher than this.

[–]grewapair 22 points23 points  (0 children)

You mean the post from the guy saying he had so many Tinder dates he just invited them home on the first date wasn't helpful? Or the guy saying he had two girls at his house fighting over him wasn't typical?

[–]Senior Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Luckily for you GaylubeOil only writes feel bad fuck you beta trolltastic masterpieces.

[–]ModeratorPaperStreetVilla 8 points9 points  (1 child)

According to your history, you've posted almost jack shit.

RPS has the ability to shit on low quality content, he's built value.

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (0 children)

According to your history you've been on reddit for two months, yet I doubt that's how long you've been a member of TRP. My account isn't my first either.

[–]mariurize_legiuana 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I stopped reading this subreddit a month ago because every 99 threads out 100 are feel good bullshit.

It's almost as if The Red Pill was just feel good bullshit for desperate men.

[–]calibrateThought 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So post something.

I've noticed there are some strange threads occasionally working their way up too...but guess what, still infinitely less bullshit to filter through here to get good content than literally anywhere else on the web I obtain information from.

I'm guessing deleting posts isn't a paid position (if it is, sign me up) so the best way to ensure the sub has good content is creating it yourself and posting it.

[–]Zombocom1911 -3 points-2 points  (20 children)

Toughest love of all: get off the hamster wheel of self improvement and just fuck prostitutes.

[–]G_Petronius 30 points30 points [recovered]

Keep telling yourself that shelling cash on chicks that pretend poorly as if they wanted to fuck you is a superior way of life compared to actually fucking women who want to fuck you. Keep believing that your ingrained evolutionary instincts can be switched off because you decided to. I'm serious here: it puts money in the economy and removes competition for me, so that's two plusses.

[–]Zombocom1911 -3 points-2 points  (12 children)

If pussy is the goal, and not ego gratification, then the end result is the same. I've been with 10 whores in one day in a club in Germany, and I have been with just as many non whores at swingers parties. Both are tons of fun.

[–]G_Petronius 14 points14 points [recovered]

k buddy, no problem. Do your thing. Just notice this: you're the guy who needs to tell others that their lifestyle is inferior because they're on the "hamster wheel" seeking "ego gratification". I honestly don't give a fuck about you. I don't need to reinforce that my way of life is better or try to shame others into following it, because I don't have the lingering feeling that I'm doing something pathetic that needs to be justfied by a superiority complex.

Have a great life and keep fucking dozens of whores per day, or whatever it is that you think you do.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Says "If pussy is the goal and not who gratification, then the end result is the same". Proceeds to stroke his ego telling us how many whores he's been with in one day.

[–]Zombocom1911 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I wasn't really trying to brag man, they are whores, after all.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (4 children)

That's not tough love at all. That's just a temporary solution and it's patently obvious to everyone.

[–]Zombocom1911 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Why is it just a temporary solution? You're not looking for love and companionship are you? There are plenty of countries where prostitution is 100% legal and relatively cheap. Plenty of western men have permanently moved to Thailand, for example.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

It depends on what your problem is.

If your problem is "I want to experience sex every once in a while" or "I don't want to die without having experienced sex" then it's a solution.

That's not the problem that TRP is solving.

[–]Zombocom1911 4 points5 points  (1 child)

You're completely wrong about that, there are many countries with legal prostitution where due to the rate of exchange , western world men can easily afford live in girlfriend type of situations, Thailand being one of them.

[–]calibrateThought 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Outside of raising children I wouldn't want to live with even a good quality woman...why would I invite a whore to live in my home?

As someone who makes quite a bit of money your points about prostitution resonate with me somewhat - my personal time is more valuable than the hourly rate charged by whores...so sometimes I would much rather optimize it such that I am engaged in some activity and then can just quickly go to a scheduled meeting for some unhindered sex.

But come on dude, flirting with women is fun; I don't want to waste my personal time gaming women but there are tons of situations where you meet them incidentally and to simply ignore those opportunities in favor of prostitution is very strange and seems like a cop-out.

[–]vorverk 21 points22 points  (4 children)

I figured out that the pill is not for everyone. I showed it to a friend after a bad breakup and he swallowed it like a candy. Fast forward 1 year, and he is back buying dinners and driving girls around and being a nice guy. He is litteraly proud of not fucking them and being just a friend. My main plate is laughing how stupid he is.

This subreddit (or movement) is doomed to be averaged to a lowest common denominator, because that is the nature of things that go mainstream. More people that swallow the pill, more people will rationalize (ie hamster) out of it, around it, feel-good it etc. People know sugar is bad, but they still eat it.

[–]Barsukas_Tukas 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I think that guys who have been in this for a long time and can easily differentiate from blue pill painted red and real red pill should add something like "Useful past TRP posts" where most of valuable posts are added.

This sub may eventually be averaged, but such sidebar topic would be something that would help new guys find loads of information that isn't bullshit.

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

Pretty much anything you would possibly need is in the sidebar already, even a collection of past useful posts, I think it's under redpill101. It's a PDF compilation of every post you'd need as a beginner, think it was 200 pages at least.

What's on the front page is just mostly shitposting by beginners who haven't even read the literature suggested, let alone internalized anything the red pill has to teach, and of course the anger phase woman hating going on by those same beginners.

But I understand it, there's just not much more to add to it, and with so many new subscribers it just becomes a circlejerk.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Some people like to be "morally superior". Let them be.

[–]ChrisBenRoy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There's a very real effect of using all this knowledge after a BP break up to get one to their next BP relationship and start the process all over. I can see that easily happening.

[–]Battle-Scars 76 points77 points  (35 children)

You're like MacArthur retaking the Philippines. It's been a shitpost jungle in here, if I have to read one more post about game of thrones, or "how I got a handjob Saturday night" I think I'll swallow a bullet.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 70 points71 points  (6 children)

I gotta tell you, ir really helps when people click report on shitposts. The reports go straight to us. I sometimes don't catch a shitpost until 12 hours later. If people clicked report instead of commented "this is a shitpost" I'd have it deleted in minutes, not hours.

[–]Battle-Scars 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Never found a reason to do it, in the last week I think I've done it 5 times.

[–]Cookiest 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Can you throw this in an edit to your OP? I wouldn't have realized if I missed this comment

[–]ModeratorPaperStreetVilla 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Seconded. I've only been a mod here for the past few months, but I've yet to see a heavily reported link that didn't require action. Makes the moderators way more efficient at what we do.

[–]ChrisBenRoy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

BRB, going to do this right now.

[–]wont_tell_i_refuse_ 19 points20 points  (6 children)

My favorite will always be the post entitled "[FR] May have escaped friendzone"

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 21 points22 points  (2 children)

"[FR] May have escaped friendzone"

Guys, I touched her shoulder. She's going to call me, right?

[–]Battle-Scars 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Do I smell a shitpost hall of fame in the works for our amusement?

Don't give these tards a millisecond of fame. Just bury them like cat turds.

[–]RedditAdminsSuck_88 23 points24 points  (16 children)

The field reports on here drive me nuts. I almost never read them, which is a shame, because every now and then a field report actually makes a good point/observation or two and I learn from it.

But pretty much every field report goes like this: "Hey TRP, I am so grateful for you. I was a beta 18 hours ago, but came onto TRP, read a couple posts on the sidebar, and applied it to my oneitis, and it worked, she <kissed me/talked to me/gave me a BJ/fucked me> and now everything is happy ever after, thanks TRP, i got what I needed out of TRP and wont be coming back or doing anymore reading, my oneitis fucked me thats all that matters"

Great. My question is, so what? What lessons did you learn? What observations can you make? What is the analysis of it all?

In other words, it's too much summarization and not any analyzation.

Field Reports should be about analysis, not a summary of what happened. If you have been coming to TRP for 2.5 years like I have you've read the same field report summary 500 times.

I think there should be some kind of minimum standard to meet for field reports. If its all summary and little-to-no analysis or no meaningful analysis it should be axed.

[–]Battle-Scars 10 points11 points  (7 children)

Sad, but there seems to be a need for a required click through on the sidebar before you are allowed to post. Every newb should be locked out from commenting for 2 months until they have read and digested the sidebar and 2 of the 5 suggested books, rational male, etc.

[–][deleted] 10 points10 points

[permanently deleted]

[–]RedditAdminsSuck_88 5 points6 points  (4 children)

I understand the concept, but 2 months is extreme, especially someone like me who gets his accounts banned by Reddit Admins all the time for no reason and has to make new accounts frequently.

[–]RobertCarraway 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I've been at this shit for 10 years and I'm barely to the point where I feel like I can offer men serious advice regarding women. Becoming a man is a lifetime affair. 2 months is bare bones minimum. Bleached white bare bones.

[–]RPmatrix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It really depends on what they say.

Maybe if they get reported more than once they should get a warning to up the standard of their posts or they'll be shadowbanned for a week/month

TRP can be quite confrontational at first, especially for the guys who need it the most, so we should give them a chance ... once.

[–]PowerVitamin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's supposed to be extreme and harsh. That's how we survived as a species and why you keep coming back.

[–]i2amahandmodel 3 points4 points  (1 child)

And you can tell they are written by 16 year olds. Or the ones that aren't usually go something like "I met this 10 at the club who was giving me dirty looks so I called her a whore and ignored her, then within 2 minutes she was sucking my dick in a bathroom stall while her father, mother and fiance cried as they watched. hue hue hue"

[–]RedditAdminsSuck_88 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's so common. It's why I don't even click on Field Reports anymore. Which is a disservice to people who actually have field reports that aren't garbage.

[–]ChrisBenRoy 1 point2 points  (2 children)

What's up brothers. Girls are sluts. I'm ripped and I don't wear a shit. This HB9 Asian came up to me and basically put her vagina on me. I told her I'm going to make her swallow my dick and she did. Lessons learned: Lift and fuck bitches

^ basically 90% of FR's here.

[–]RedditAdminsSuck_88 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I laughed when you added "Asian".

I don't think I have ever seen a Field Report where the woman they are gaming is white. It's always an asian or latina.

[–]ChrisBenRoy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If they are it's blonde, tan, fit w/ fake tits.

[–]spicedncoke 1 points1 points [recovered]

I remember seeing a lot of this on the old PUA forums. They'd read a couple chapters of Magic Bullets and think they have I figured out. 6 months later they're back wondering why it's not working or they have given up.

[–]RedditAdminsSuck_88 9 points10 points  (0 children)

That's why I hate those posts so much.

They think The Red Pill is literally something they can read up on in 15 minutes because its a Friday and they want to make a move on their oneitis before the weekend begins, and they want to find a quick way to woo their oneitis before the bell rings. That they read a couple items on the sidebar and think they have it all figured out.

Yeah, reading the sidebar material can help, and it may actually help you in an isolated, single occasion, but if it does that's just luck. Improving yourself to where you consistently have a good success rate takes a long, long time.

I've been coming here for 2.5 years now and still consider myself a relative newbie to it all just because TRP is an ongoing process that never ends. It's like a swordsmith, takes the sword out of the fire, hammers it, puts it back in the fire, hammers it, always making it better.

There is no peak Red Pill. You always have room to improve or get better.

[–]sir_wankalot_here 2 points3 points  (1 child)

MacArthur retaking the Philippines.

Hm, just wondering about this inner peace thing... :

Wikipedia says: "... to keep oneself strong in the face of discord or stress"

Which is IMHO a good thing that can help anyone. Might as well help you reduce your chance of fucking up a shit test, can make you happier (there are studies about that) and it can help you hold frame due to you knowing about your feelings when they appear.

[–]Senior Contributordeepthrill 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Strength in the face of turmoil is necessary. Most people delude themselves into thinking there is no turmoil, that they're "above" petty struggles like mating, and to just "be happy just to be alive, man!".

Those people have used inner peace as an excuse to avoid hardships.

Those people have used inner peace as an excuse for complacency.

The truth is, it you want to succeed in this world, you have to constantly be outside your comfort zone. If you've ever faced... or rather purposefully placed yourself in... a truly challenging situation in life outside of your comfort zone I promise there is a huge amount of turmoil you will face.

Outside your comfort zone is inherently uncomfortable.

I'm talking about things like pursuing an advanced degree, starting a business, attempting to master a physical skill like martial arts.

You won't find much inner peace if you are, as you should be, constantly at the edge of your comfort zone.

Recommended reading: The Art of Learning by Josh Waitzkin, Mastery by Robert Greene, Peak by Anders Ericsoon.

Hope that clears up the inner peace questions.

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

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Whether you like it or not.

[–]thefreedude 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You won't find much inner peace if you are, as you should be, constantly at the edge of your comfort zone.

Bullshit! I have been practicing tai chi for over 7 years now. Nothing tests and teaches you the ability to be at peace and in now of the movement than outer and inner turmoil. If you fail, next time you go for it you will be more experienced in how to let go and get back to it. For me now, it is that turmoil that centers me and gives me peace even more. Same goes for the game in relation to inner peace and your school/job and pretty much everything else I think.

It seems to me that most of the people have connected inner peace with the buddha meditating under the tree. Seemingly doing nothing productive. That is in my opinion rather outdated point of view and I think that anyone that has been practicing any kind of meditation and applying it for any kind of gains accordingly in this wonderfull capitalism of ours would think the same. Otherwise it did not sink in that well yet.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

If you're having trouble with a shit-test, upgrade your IDGAF to level 1, see how you do.

[–]beachbbqlover 1 point2 points  (0 children)

At level 2 you don't even ask how to pass one - cause you don't actually give any fucks.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thats along the lines of what I was thinking. The posts on meditation that I saw here weren't on becoming an inner peace door mat, more on - as I've seen some TRP endorsed posters say - meditation being an exercise on taking control of your mind.

Mission, lift, meditate, bitches.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The best way to get this is to be putting yourself in stressful situations. There are many ways about it that are educational. Theres a quote about storms and sailors which basically says this.

The other is over time. Either way when you've been through alot you find that inner peace during good times.

[–]logicalthinker1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yeah, but pussy!!!

redpill is very reactionary. If posts focus too much on simply slamming chicks, then you get posts calling it simple-minded, juvenile behavior. If posts focus on improving your mental status, increasing your happiness, and bettering yourself, suddenly you're a big vagina and should just plow some girls.

redpill is above all a self-improvement guide. A large part of self-improvement and happiness is embracing your masculinity (lifting, and generally doing manly shit), and fucking women. But it's not the only thing

[–]UFND 3 points3 points [recovered]

The word people are looking for is self-compassion.

Self-compassion is a prequisite to self-improvement. You must be at peace with yourself, in spite of yourself (thanks /u/IllimitableMan). Otherwise you end up directing your attention and focus to the ongoing battles of cognitive dissonance and internal conflict. This includes tuning too much into negative emotions when you're doing something that does make you better in the long-term.

As an aside, /u/redpillschool:

I, personally, think the drive to success requires you to NEVER find total inner peace. Instead, embrace the desire and need to more and better. This is what the alphas at the top feel. They feel the sweet sweet high of success, which wears off quickly pushing them to reach even higher.

Wouldn't the realisation of such a belief of success be a potential invitation for a nihlistic outlook on life? Is this not what Western civilisation has tried to beat into the heads of modern man for ages on end? That in order to be successful, you need more, more and more?

I don't believe this is a sustainable ideology. If anything, it's a breeding ground for depression as a person slowly begins to realise that the pursuit of happiness can't be found within extrinsitc lands.

[–]1Ronin11A 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The distinction is a lot of people mistake being at "peace with yourself" with complacency. "I'm at peace with myself, therefore I don't need more or need to get better. I've accepted myself."

What RPS is calling for is kaizen or the Japanese business philosophy of continuous improvement of working practices, personal efficiency, and so forth.

If you reach a point where you're so comfortable with yourself that you feel you can no longer improve, do better, or achieve more, you've lost. You can accept who you are without giving up the grind to be a little bit better each day.

[–]FairlyNaive 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I totally agree with the idea that you should change your results accroding to your expectations, but on the same note i read a number of studies that showed negative effects of stress on the willpower. Sure, the raging dissatisfaction with your life will bring you further then indoctring yourself to be ok with it, but stone cold determination to improve, that is cleared from guilt, doubt or any other amotional noise will blow them both out of the water.

[–]RedSweetBeans 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Certainly the feel good stuff is just advocating procrastination, but isn't stoicism a part of the red pill or did i get that wrong because it's posted quite often

We can sit here and moan about how shit it's become or we can, like RPSchool has by deleting shit posts, work out how to solve this problem.

Cause: The cause is simple, One shit post managed to get popular and set the standard and tone for others to follow. Now when people view this sub all they see are post of a certain type and standard so they post to that level.

Solution. Maybe Repost some of early post 2013 -2014 and have only those for a few days. After that every few days select a great post from the archives an sticky it as an example of excellence and what one should strive for when posting.

"Inner Peace" is all in what you make it out to be. Even though I disagree with the OP's premise in inner peace is for complacent idiots, I understand the perspective. You need to allow your testosterone to be used as fuel to become a better man.

However, when you've been in the dating game for a while, it's highly advantageous to have achieved some sort of "inner peace" when dealing with women. Their high level of emotional manipulation is enough to break a weak man into irrational actions because of the fact he didn't respect himself first. The one thing you don't want to do after swallowing the pill is staying in the anger phase forever and letting it consume you. It's okay to smile.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

GOOD! The success thing is spot on. You're never complacent because its gone immediately.

[–]Wallstreet3 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuck inner noise. Want to know what inner noise is? Its cognitive dissonance, its doubt, its male-hamstering. Its a mental storm driving you onto the rocks.

[–]BlackJ1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Just for some clarity, when you are referring to "zen-ish platitudes" are you talking about any post that advocates for a better "peace of mind"?

I ask this because not too long ago I made a post titled: "What Do I Want?"

[–]1ShallITinder 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I completely understand the frustration that you are going through here. Being able to get laid does a lot to a man's psyche yet you have these neckbeards telling you how Nikolai Tesla never got laid and he ended up being a genius or whatever. The entire sub is a collection of advice on how men can do better with women, mainly being able to get laid and not be sexually frustrated is a good start. Unfortunately, these neckbeards come in saying how this sub is not seddit. Of course it is not seddit you stupid fucks, seddit says looks don't matter, we say they fucking do! The sub is an accurate advice guide for turning your sex life around and getting laid.

I want to write about how have an active sex life and how to not be a miserable loner. All the while, these neckbeards praise monk mode and other nonsense talking about how guys are putting too much value into sex.

I have a proposal and believe we need a better vetting process. Perhaps make it so a person has to have a certain amount of karma on this sub before they can even comment on a thread. If you cannot even get 25 karma points on TRP, you probably aren't a good fit for the sub and would be better off elsewhere. By doing it this way, you would have affected vetted a lot of low quality posters and managed to cut down on the garbage. I don't know if it is possible but also make it hard for new posters to upvote or downvote content, tired of quality threads with good material on how to get laid being downvoted because neckbeard thinks you're better off going into monk mode.

So many guys that need help are being robbed of it by these whiny spineless neckbeards that have decided to make this sub their home.

What's your view on the whole meditation trend ?

[–]BluestBlackBalls 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Meditation, in this instance, is an exercise used in seclusion to train yourself in these simple skills: focus and self-awareness. Your ability to apply said skill in the field should dictate the value of the practice — meditation— and the practitioner — are you meditating or simply jerking yourself?

 

Focus is simply cutting off divergent thoughts and sticking to your guns. Self awareness is being able to identify the point at which your thoughts, feels and focus diverge.

 

A passive way to realign thoughts/feels with your goals is found in the notion of "accepting and acknowledging how you feel..." where as the active — and I dare say more useful means — can be found in an altered form of Raja Yoga, wherein you actively tell the deviation to fuck off.

 

Three both, YMMV

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

OP seems to think mediation is an excuse to not confront your problems, which, in some instances, can be true, if that is all you do. But I also think OP is beating up a straw man. I don't think most people use mediation as an end in itself. I use it to regain focus and reduce unwanted stress so I can redirect myself towards things that matter to me, not sing myself a beta-kumbaya and to give myself positive feelz.

[–]iLLprincipLeS 2 points2 points [recovered]

What these snowflakes want, is peace. They want to put off that flame and halt. A MGTOW here, a LTR there, a unicorn somewhere.

Can't understand a male never stops to become better. There is simply no easy way. No magic formula. The road to heaven goes through hell. And hell is on earth.

Si vis pacem, para bellum.

AWALT MOTHERFUCKERS.

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

I've been reading/lurking TRP for a while, and it was usually about self-direction, purpose, and getting a control on your life, and women. It doesn't have to be hell. Sometimes it is hell, but it isn't necessarily so. If some people find that meditation illuminates their purpose and drive in life by bringing them peace and clarity in a sea of chaos, so be it. Some people may not have an objective way out of hell - think joint custody of a child with an ex wife. You aren't going to go beat up the judge like fucking Jason Stathom to get what you want. Sometimes you need a different strategy to change your perspective on things, or at least to be at peace with them. You could fight the law tooth and nail for a decade, and be completely defeated and exhausted at the end, or you could be at peace with what you can't change, so you can focus on what you can change.

Would it be possible to get something like a weekly/daily thread where we could just post links to redpill/bluepill examples?

I sometimes find some that I would like to share here, but I don't find that they deserve a full thread/writeup, and I'm not much of a writer anyway.

[–]adultman2 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I, personally, think the drive to success requires you to NEVER find total inner peace. Instead, embrace the desire and need to more and better. This is what the alphas at the top feel. They feel the sweet sweet high of success, which wears off quickly pushing them to reach even higher.

Can confirm. I haven't been "happy" for longer than a couple of hours in a while now. Everything I succeed feels so good for a couple of hours and then it's a huge crash and I'm back at "unhappy" which is actually just a default state of mine where nothing but a new goal achieved makes me "happy" for a few hours again.

Fucked up but you learn to redefine happiness and the one definition of it, when people think that happiness is something you somehow magically achieve and then you're in a permament state of happy, when it's actually the struggle, the eagerness, the fire inside you, this is "happiness" for us who strive to achieve, we don't play for the "happy state" after the goal is done, we play for more fire and more drive for new goals, I fear the day I lose this drive.

This fucked up my relationships with women tho, the famous "chase is better than the catch" and that's the part I'm not happy about, but well, maybe I just need to find a higher quality, relatable to woman.

[–]BluestBlackBalls 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I think you drive t the point being made in these Eastern Schools. Point being to BE. The 'goal' beings o realise that regardless of emotional, physical and mental state, you still exist and thus attempt to teach you to focus on being aware of the process of existing.

 

To use psychological terms, the point is to be process driven, not goal driven.

 

The Goal Driven

Often given away by questions like how do I get oneitis to <give HJ/BJ/Sex&gt;, this group has a goal in mind and are not interested in the toils that bring about said goals. This when their first dabble with the Pill does not work, they seek simpler, flashier ways to find a solution. These are the 7-Minute Abs people of RP.

 

The Process Driven

These are the people that find joy in the act of applying the principles laid out in the RP rhetoric. In the same manner that a sprinter takes pleasure in countless hours on the track partaking in drills, is brought to near braking point in the weight room and is contented by a hard won 8th place in a regional meet, these are the people that stick the course when applying the rhetoric.

[–]jgaddis4 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeah. Your attitude, and your lack of ability to express the term "breaking point" leads me to believe that you have the bluest balls of all.

Be easy on them some guys need more time its more helpful to all of us and brotherhood dont eat your young these post are good for reference because it confirms things about life and women in general no post should be ignored, come on man.

So we should embrace posts like "I jewed the pizza guy, is that Beta?" From someone who did not even read the sidebar which is required reading before posting?

[–]RPmatrix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

ANY post that asks "is this alpha/beta" should be deleted

[–]thefreedude 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This should be under Rant/venting because that's what you are doing. You are blowing off some steam and that is fine. I would do the same if I had to deal with the shit you do, but to tell people that inner peace is bad for you and that opposite will get you better results, is straight out bad advice.

I get that people use inner game, seeking inner peace and monk mode as excuses to procastinatinate some more but we do not have to go to extremes in everything here. Maybe that is just what they need, maybe not. That is not for me or you to decide. Most of things are not black and white. Some are, awalt, but most are not.

Peace.

[–]JonMan219 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I'm tired of hearing about that abundance nonsense...

[–]Pulstastic -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

I disagree with the idea that one should never feel total inner peace. I'm gay, and I guess I lurk here for reasons I don't fully understand. But I've been naked with two kindhearted hot guys today; I'm within the top 50 individuals in my profession in my age cohort nationwide; I'm debt-free and financially stable; I'm comfortably sipping a glass of wine before bed, and honestly, life is pretty great. There are people I know who will strive forever, and they may well die unhappy. Strive if you're not there yet. But once you get there, don't strive forever.

[–]DreamBrandt -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I've been thinking the same thing. People always talk of inner peace as if its the end all be all. That ultimately that's what really matters. I've been striving towards that for most of my life and let me tell you, it hasn't gotten me anywhere. Fuck inner peace, life is rough and sometimes you have to feel like shit. Fight it instead of sitting there like a bitch and rationalising it off as "inner peace".

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Inner peace is for complacent idiots.

Agreed. It's a Blue Pill fantasy. "Peace" actually comes from being strong and getting all your needs met. Then it's effortless to "live in the moment" since the moment is fucking awesome.

Inner peace can legitimize many escapist tendencies. You need to compete in the real world if you want to be happy.

[–]RedEyesBlueShades -1 points0 points  (5 children)

Can you limit the ability to post?

For example, you cannot post until you have 1000 TRP comment karma. Shows you got some endorsement from the community before you can start posting.

Or some other form of community vetting.

Also, to keep posting, your level has to stay above a certain threshold. So if you start talking shit, you end up not being able to post anymore.

[–]grewapair 3 points4 points  (3 children)

That married guy who posted yesterday about how he's married but no one should be got his post removed by the automod for not having enough karma. It was a good post.

[–]RPmatrix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

how do you restrict a user name to TRP? They could get the comment karma anywhere on Reddit

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Very, very distorted view of spirituality/inner peace.

I don't blame you.

I won't argue. Words, knowledge, they don't really change attitude.

But just try for yourself, do a 30 minute Dynamic Meditation before you go out.

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

This is part of why I dont want to start yoga or meditating. I agree with you that inner peace is a facade

Meditation is not about reaching inner peace, at least not the kind of meditation that's normally endorsed here. It's about becoming aware of your mental processes so you're not overwhelmed by them. Artificially calming your emotions is the opposite of its aim.

[–]RPmatrix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

you shouldn't assume, you should try it and see. It's not like some switch is going to be flipped and you'll turn into some passive piece of meat! lol People spend a lifetime trying to obtain 'inner peace', like TRP's ideology, success comes through practice and you're not going to become a 'self realized Master' overnight!

check out "mindfulness meditation" ... you can do Vipassna ten day silent retreats at various buddhist monasteries, which are unique for a westerner. (the monks give instructional talks once or twice a day, but you're not supposed to talkat all except to a monk) you get a private room to sleep/meditate in.

How often do you sit alone and just focus on how your body is feeling? It's basically just that ... however the things you end up thinking are equally uniqe and many people find the experience somewhat life changing, but I've never met a person who's found it anything but motivating!

IME 'meditating' leads to awareness which just makes you better at whatever you do.
