Lately, there has been an uptick in posts on this sub that completely disregard the value of SMV, status, and all that. Posts that talk about how a guy is edgy or "cool" for wanting to be this "lone wolf" type of person. The guy who is too good to associate with people or has taken so much of the red pill that normal people bore him, he doesn't even need to chat with them as they are just so out of touch with reality compared to him. Well, this is the not so gentle red pill truth all of you in here need to hear, as much as you may hate it.
For a long time, the red pill has been accommodating the kinds of people who decide to stay in on the weekends, play WOW, and yet see themselves as "alpha" because they read a bunch of posts on the red pill. Today is not going to be so gentle to you.
Status, SMV, and how others see you matters a lot; it is practically everything.
Being popular matters, a lot.
It's like high school never ended.
If you wanted to date the hottest girls, go to the best parties, and not end up being the kid that got bullied; your status was what validated you. I mean it even carried over on to college where you saw frat boys with dad bods dating hot girls because of their status. It's simple, the reason you're learning all of this shit on the red pill and reading the sidebar is so you can do something about it. By just reading the red pill posts, coming across edgy (yet truthful) knowledge, and then going back to your loner lifestyle; you missed the point.
Being a loner that sucks with girls and with people yet sees them as angels is not really that different from being the bitter loner that took the pill and now still sucks with girls and people. You are a brand and your value matters in the world, whether you like it or not, you're being judged.
The whole game is a lot more objective than you may think.
A Victoria Secret supermodel has a higher SMV than a Rosie O Donnel lookalike. Likewise, a Leonardo DiCaprio has a higher value than some loner shut in who hates people because he has "seen the truth". So when the loners on here start dissing high value guys that get laid, party, sleep around, and give us all a lecture about morals and everything; realize that you are on a sub which is based on sexual strategy. Realize that objectively, the Chad who gets laid and has friends is worth way more to society than a loner shut in who people hardly know exists.
"But, they're being so low value by seeking approval of others and wanting to make friends, I rather be edgy because I am too cool for people!"
You don't get it! The cool kids in high school figured it out a long long time ago, that is how they avoided being the ones who were bullied and that is how they ended up being the ones who partied, had fun, and enjoyed amazing experiences. On the other hand, the weirdo loner who decided that his videogames and his nerdy hobbies (that he openly expressed) were what matters, he got ignored at best and bullied at worst.
The real world isn't really all that different. I am sure you heard stories of the former high school loser who magically turned it around and started kicking ass as an adult. Well, he did that specifically because he decided to lose his nerdy ways (or at least conceal them more) and become the guy who cares about how he presents himself to the world.
So the guy who is having a three way with a couple of HB9s while you're sitting at home tonight watching porn, he realized this not so gentle truth.
The guy who gets that high paying job and has his bosses and coworkers respecting him, he realized this not so gentle truth.
The guy who has people sticking up for him and respecting him while the hate you, he realized this not so gentle truth.
The guy who going to a top notch rooftop pool party while you're on Netflix, he realized this not so gentle truth.
You may think you're being so "edgy" by breaking off of society norms now that you have read a couple of posts on TRP and you may think you're so much better than Leonardo DiCaprio because you read a couple posts on this sub, reality will show you time and time again that this is simply not true.
The red pill is made to help you rise in this harsh world, not be a bitter loser that opts out and now thinks he won at the game of life.
The red pill is here to help you screw that picky HB9 who didn't earn anything she got in life, not make you the bitter loser who hates her and tells himself that he is too good to game her because she is "just a slut brainwashed by feminism".
The red pill is here to help you make friends and get you into the rooftop pool party, not to make you into the guy who hates people and talks about how everyone at the party is just some normal person who cares way too much of what others think of them.
The redpill is here to help you rise in the corproate world, not to make into the guy that complains how the system is rigged and decides that he rather live on welfare for the rest of his life.
In all of those things, popularity and status matters! How others see you matter!
So you may think you're being edgy by rejecting society but don't be so shocked to find that you're now a sexless loser who everyone looks down on. I prefer that people like you rather not share their views on this sub let alone try to help anyone. Maybe you're better off going to some more blue pilled places where you can whine about society and how unfair it is rather than making something out of yourself and rising.
The truth is, no one wants to be anything like you.
