Here we go again with the Pseudo Male Crisis. I don't know what part about this society doesn't understand. When it offers men the choice between a Shit sandwich and Argentinian steak, it can't figure out why they pass on the sandwich.
Maybe it's because it isn't the men who are in Crisis but rather the society that is being rejected by them that is.
A leading psychologist has warned that young men are facing a crisis of masculinity due to excessive use of video games and pornography.
In an interview on the BBC World Service's Weekend programme, Zimbardo spoke about the results of his study, an in-depth look into the lives of 20,000 young men and their relationships with video games and pornography.
He said: "Our focus is on young men who play video games to excess, and do it in social isolation - they are alone in their room."
"Now, with freely available pornography, which is unique in history, they are combining playing video games, and as a break, watching on average, two hours of pornography a week."
Zimbardo says there is a "crisis" amongst young men, a high number of whom are experiencing a "new form of addiction" to excessive use of pornography and video games.
Zimbardo gave a TED talk in 2011 outlining the problems facing young men's social development and academic achievement, which he puts down to excessive use of porn, video games and the internet.
He cited the example of a mother he met while conducting the study whose son does not see the problem in playing video games for up to 15 hours a day.
Zimbardo said: "For me, 'excess' is not the number of hours, it's a psychological change in mindset."
Giving an example of the mindset of a gaming and pornography-addicted young man, he says:
"When I'm in class, I'll wish I was playing World of Warcraft. When I'm with a girl, I'll wish I was watching pornography, because I'll never get rejected."
Zimbardo claims that this relatively new phenomenon is affecting the minds of young men.
Yeap, I just can't imagine what the problem is. Gone Ghosting... Making the best of a very, very bad situation.
Or as Tom Leykis would say, never give them the key to your front door or your vault. The trick is (for you PUAs) is to keep them anticipating they will get those things. Because once they do get in, they stop working to get in, then getting rid of them becomes a whole new set of problems.
A Florida woman is facing a felony animal abuse charge for allegedly killing her boyfriend’s goldfish by pouring bleach into their tank, according to court records.
Angela Garcia, 32, was arrested Saturday after she allegedly trashed beau Norris Johnson’s Orlando-area residence following an argument.
Orange County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to the home by the man’s son. He told investigators that his father had gone to work following the argument with Garcia, but had told her to vacate the residence.
As detailed in a police report, Garcia (seen at right) destroyed a flat screen TV, other electronic devices, and furniture in the home, which reeked of bleach when her boyfriend’s son discovered the wreckage.
In addition to causing $1500 in property damage, Garcia also allegedly poured bleach into her boyfriend’s fish tank, killing five goldfish. Johnson’s son told deputies that Garcia was free on bond in another criminal case and that his father allowed her to live with them for a couple of days.
Deputies who subsequently apprehended Garcia near the crime scene reported that she was “visibly intoxicated” and “had the presence of bleach all over her clothing.”
Charged with felony counts of animal cruelty and criminal mischief, Garcia was booked into the county jail, from which she was released Monday after posting $1150 bond.
I guarantee you that guy's son is going to remember all this someday when some chick pushes to move in with him.
This comment was funny though, I didn't think about it from this angle.
The video above was captured by a bystander and shows Michael Slager, a North Charleston Police Officer, shooting Walter Scott, who was wanted for failure to pay child support, in the back as he ran from Slager.
Child Support comes directly out of men's pay checks unless they are self employed of course. Those payments are still due even if men are out of work or take a job with less pay than before. The system is going to get it's money one way or another. Either men find a way to pay or they become slave labor to the Prison Industrial Complex. Like I have said a million times before, if this is what happens to the "winners", I'll take the life of a "loser" every time. In case you missed it, here is another one that will not be shown inside any Church warning men about what they can expect when Princess feels marriage wasn't her vocation after all.
But here is what men will get preached, rather, screamed at them over what they should do.
Yeah well, you can have em friend and the Police State they come with, I'll be Going Ghost thank you very much.
Just have it deleted from YouTube. Once again the Feminists are their own worst enemies, I never saw this video until the news broke today that it got deleted, now others are downloading and reposting it.
Controversial clip showed men defending themselves against violent women
A viral anti-feminist video which showed men defending themselves against violent assaults by women was controversially deleted after YouTube deemed the video to be a form of “hate speech”.
Uploaded by a YouTube user called RedPillPhilosophy, the video received over 1.1 million views and over 9,000 likes on YouTube alone before it was taken down.
The clip showed numerous instances of women attacking men and men defending themselves in an effort to make the point that feminists don’t truly believe in “gender equality”.
“All the video ever did was document people defending themselves against bullies, aggressors (and) violent people,” commented the uploader, noting that the idea we live in a “patriarchy” is discredited if men defending themselves against violence was considered to be “hate speech”.
“Apparently we live in a society where a woman who is bullying somebody should get a free pass,” he added, noting that a video showing women defending themselves against men would have been celebrated.
Right again but they can't hide this stuff anymore, there are simply too many people catching on to them and exposing them for what they truly are. Thanks again ladies for making our points for us and helping me to screen videos, if you hate it, it must be really good.
Gone Ghostin'... Because it just keeps getting better all the time.
I recently assisted a young man who was subjected by administrators at his small liberal arts university in Oregon to a month-long investigation into all his campus relationships, seeking information about his possible sexual misconduct in them (an immense invasion of his and his friends’ privacy), and who was ordered to stay away from a fellow student (cutting him off from his housing, his campus job, and educational opportunity) — all because he reminded her of the man who had raped her months before and thousands of miles away. He was found to be completely innocent of any sexual misconduct and was informed of the basis of the complaint against him only by accident and off-hand. But the stay-away order remained in place, and was so broadly drawn up that he was at constant risk of violating it and coming under discipline for that.
When the duty to prevent a “sexually hostile environment” is interpreted this expansively, it is affirmatively indifferent to the restrained person’s complete and total innocence of any misconduct whatsoever.
In a related development, OCR increasingly implies that the only adequate “interim measure” that can protect a complainant in the Title IX process is the exclusion of the accused person from campus pending resolution of the complaint. To be sure, in these cases the accused may eventually be found to be responsible for violations, sometimes very serious ones. But advocates and the OCR are arguing that all complainants are trauma victims subject to continuing trauma if the persons they accuse continue in school: merely “seeing” the harasser is deemed traumatic.
Sounds to me like they are running insane asylums for women and then they wonder why men are avoiding those places.

These "accusations" were caught on video by the way.
A first-grade teacher in St. Francisville resigned this week amid an investigation into allegations she berated, kicked and slapped a student during a lunch break at Bains Lower Elementary School.
West Feliciana Parish sheriff’s deputies issued an arrest warrant for the teacher, Chanel M. Lemelle, on Thursday on a count of cruelty to juveniles after a number of people told deputies that Lemelle struck the student inside the school’s cafeteria on Jan. 23. The incident also was captured by surveillance cameras.
Her father, J.S. “Stan” Lemelle, a retired federal prosecutor who once served as the interim U.S. attorney for Louisiana’s Middle District, said the family is deferring comment to his daughter’s attorney, Don Cazayoux.
Cazayoux, also a retired federal prosecutor and former state legislator who now works with Stan Lemelle at a private firm in Baton Rouge, said Chanel Lemelle is a dedicated teacher who taught in the West Feliciana School District for about a decade.
“She’s devastated,” Cazayoux said. “She loves her students and she would never do anything intentionally to hurt any of them.”
Except of course when she is doing something to hurt them, any other time though... lol.
Cazayoux said late Friday that Chanel Lemelle, 31, had not yet surrendered to sheriff’s deputies. But they’re working to arrange a meeting with authorities.
Geez, can you imagine if it was a male teacher slapping a little girl, the White Knights wouldn't be waiting around for that guy to surrender I assure you, he would already be SWATted to death.
“She has faith in the legal system,” Cazayoux said.
Oh hell yes, I would too if the deck was stacked that far in my favor.
A sheriff’s deputy who reviewed camera footage of the incident wrote in a report that as the student walked by Chanel Lemelle in the cafeteria, she could be seen kicking him in the rear. The video also showed her slapping the boy on the back of the head, the deputy wrote.
I'd like to find that vid, I guarantee you a lot of that trash goes on coming from low SMV females directed particularly at young boys but I have also seen them turn their wrath on the attractive young girls.
A witness told deputies that Chanel Lemelle was “yelling at one student in particular in a loud and degrading manner because he was not walking like he was supposed to,” the deputy wrote in the report.
Witnesses told the investigator that Chanel Lemelle forced the student to sit at a lunch table by himself while his classmates went through the food line in the cafeteria. After all his classmates got food, Chanel Lemelle allowed the student to get food, the witnesses said.
But when the student returned, Chanel Lemelle allegedly took one of his tacos and told the student “he only needed one taco,” a deputy wrote in the report.
Hollis Milton, superintendent of the West Feliciana Parish school district, said Chanel Lemelle “agreed to resign” amid the investigation into the allegations she faced.
The witnesses told the deputy that Chanel Lemelle often brought an empty plate to lunch and filled it with food from her students. One of the witnesses also told a deputy that she saw Chanel Lemelle yelling at the same student as he was crying against a wall in a hallway about a week earlier.
The superintendent said a new teacher will replace Chanel Lemelle in her classroom on Monday.
Milton said the allegations should not overshadow “the positive, warm culture that children experience every day” at the school, while also stressing the seriousness of the accusations.
“The majority of our folks do just a tremendous job for our kids,” Milton said. “At the end of the day, it’s still a wonderful school.”
Yeah I'm sure and what a wonderful world it would be too if these bitter control freaks ever took over.
Over two thousand years ago the Greeks and Romans had a name for Ghosts and they were called Stoics or Cynics. Epictetus was one of the Greek Stoic Philosophers who's ideas were written down for us by one of his students in the Discourses of Epictetus. There are three books online that I could find with this guys stuff in it but they are more or less the same.
This Epictetus guy had some good advice. The idea was pretty much to focus on what is in our own power and be indifferent to what isn't. Even then, pursing or avoiding what is in our power should be done in moderation.
Ok by me, that's how Going Ghost is, a little bit of effort with a whole lot of pay off in the form of peace of mind, health of body and quality of life. It's all very simple. If I have to jump through ten plus hoops to make someone else happy so we can both be happy I'll just jump through no hoops, dump the other person and be happy myself.
If they don't like it then that is their problem. I'm not in control of them and they don't control me. I got better things to do than deal with their perpetual misery.
So anyway, here were a few of my favorite parts from all three of the books.
A man's master is he who is able to confer or remove whatever that man seeks or shuns. Whoever would be free, let him wish nothing, let him decline nothing, which depends on others; else he must necessarily be a slave.
You can be unconquerable, if you enter into no combat in which it is not in your own power to conquer.
Winning by not fighting?
But for you part, do not desire to be a general, or a senator, or a consul, but to be free; and the only way to this is a disregard of things which lie not within our own power.
Remember that it is not he who gives abuse or blows who affronts; but the view we take of these things as insulting.
If you ever happen to turn your attention to externals, for the pleasure of any one, be assured that you have ruined your scheme of life.
Be mostly silent; or speak merely what is needful, and in few words.
Avoid public and vulgar entertainments; but if ever an occasion calls you to them, keep your attention upon the stretch, that you may not imperceptibly slide into vulgarity.
There are certain things I can't avoid that are public. What goes on now days can be described as vulgar. The only way I can avoid all the BS is by going mentally Ghost even though I have to be there physically. Keeping my attention on the stretch until it is over with.
For be assured that if a person be ever so pure himself, yet, if his companion be corrupted, he who converses with him will be corrupted likewise.
You can say that again brother. Misery loves company and these Blue Pills love their misery. Oh man, it's a constant battle to keep moving and stay detached from all the negativity that goes down around me.
If anyone tells you that such a person speaks ill of you, do not make excuses about what is said of you but answer: "He was ignorant of my other faults, else he would not have mentioned these alone."
Ha, good one, that blows the wind right out of their sails. What that person is trying to do is instigate fighting between others. Like the way chicks do to men. If they can keep the pot stirred by getting others to fight it will generally keep any scrutiny off of them.
If you have assumed any character beyond your strength, you have both demeaned yourself ill in that, and quitted one which you might have supported.
Oh yes let me tell you, if people have inflated expectations of you and you meet 100% of them but don't deliver an extra 10% on top of that, you are nothing but a bag of trash and a total failure. If you play down any expectations starting off as a bag of trash then give them only 10% of the 100% you are truly capable of then suddenly you have exceeded their expectations leaving everyone astonished over this unexpected progress. Amazing how that works.
Women from fourteen years old are flattered by men with the title of mistresses. Therefore, perceiving that they are regarded only as qualified to give men pleasure, they begin to adorn themselves, and in that to place all their hopes. It is worth while, therefore, to try that they may perceive themselves honored only so far as they appear beautiful in their demeanor, and modestly virtuous.
The more things change the more they stay the same. They aren't called mistresses now but "cool girls" and it all starts around that Hannah Montana phase which is about fourteen I guess. Now we can all see how that character turned out.
Never proclaim yourself a philosopher; nor make much talk among the ignorant about your principles, but show them by actions.
I already know not to reason with a Feminist but I need to keep reminding myself of this when I'm around Blue Pill men. They don't want to hear it and to try to unplug them can have it's consequences. Better to remain ambiguous than become the target of their animosity.
And if any one tells you that you know nothing, and you are not nettled at it, then you may be sure that you have really entered on your work.
Nettled? I think it means not annoyed or insulted by it. Perfect, don't mind me, I don't know anything.
Above all, remember that the door stands open. Be not more fearful than children; but as they, when they weary of the game, cry, “I will play no more,” even so, when thou art in the like case, cry, “I will play no more” and depart. But if thou stayest, make no lamentation.
And in some games the only winning move is not to play.
In theory it is easy to convince an ignorant person: in actual life, men not only object to offer themselves to be convinced, but hate the man who has convinced them.
Amen to that, never try to unplug anyone.
Nevertheless a man should also be prepared to be sufficient unto himself — to dwell with himself alone, even
as God dwells with Himself alone, shares His repose with none, and considers the nature of His own administration, intent upon such thoughts as are meet unto Himself.
No better companion than solitude, heard that somewhere before.
“But to marry and to rear offspring,” said the young man, “will the Cynic hold himself bound to undertake
this as a chief duty?”
Grant me a republic of wise men, answered Epictetus, and perhaps none will lightly take the Cynic life upon him. For on whose account should he embrace that method of life? Suppose however that he does, there will then be nothing to hinder his marrying and rearing offspring. For his wife will be even such another as himself, and likewise her father; and in like manner will his children be brought up.
But in the present condition of things, which resembles an Army in battle array,
(Sounds like the way things are today if he means what I think he does.) ought not the Cynic to be free from all distraction and given wholly to the service of God, so that he can go in and out among men, neither fettered by the duties nor entangled by the relations of common life?
Hmm... what to do. Should I just Man Up and... Naaah, I choose the freedom, lolololol.
If any of you, withdrawing himself from externals, turns to his own will, to improve it by labor, and if he has learned that he who desires or avoids the things which are not in his power can either be faithful nor free, but of necessity be must change with them and be tossed about with them as in a tempest and must subject himself to others who have the power to procure or prevent what he desires or would avoid, if in every matter that occurs he works out his chief principles, this is the man who has not travelled in vain.
Oh yeah, forget about jumping through all those hoops to make someone else happy. Which can never be enough or done anyway because they will just keep moving the goal post around on you once they do get you jumping. So I'm Going Ghost on my own power and be happy all on my own, thanks.
Why then are you angry with the unhappy woman that she has been bewildered about the most important things and is become a viper instead of a human creature?
Well that's what happened when I took the Red Pill. It made me kind of mad at first, that I wasn't able to see the viper for what it was. Once I accepted the fact that it was just a snake, I went Ghost and now I'm not angry anymore.
Courage is not inconsistent with caution. For by employing caution towards things which are really bad, it will result that we shall have confidence with respect to things which are not so.
Marriage 2.0 are really bad, Man Going Ghost are not so bad. Ok boss, got that one figured out already but thanks for validating it for me here anyway. *Note to TradCons, throwing oneself into a really bad situation in an effort to save a civilization hell bent on destroying itself is not my idea of courage.
[One Administrator says], "But I can throw into prison any man whom I please." - So you can do with a stone. "But I can beat with sticks whom I please." - So you may an ass. This is not a governing of men. Show us what is profitable to us, and we will follow it: show us what is unprofitable, and we will turn away from it. Make us imitators of yourself, as Socrates made men imitators of himself. For he was like a governor of men, who made them subject to him their desires, their aversion, their movements towards an object and their turning away from it. - Do this: don to do this: if you do not obey, I will throw you into prison. - This is not governing men like rational animals.
It shouldn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out but even back then the Greeks must have had their share of control freaks. I don't think he is saying it's ok to go do anything you want but rather not to force others to "Man Up" when it is not in their best interests.
That we ought with caution to enter into familiar intercourse with men. If a man has frequent intercourse with others either for talk, or drinking together, or generally for social purposes, he must either become like them, or change them to his own fashion. Since then the danger is so great, we must cautiously enter into such intimacies with those of the common sort, and remember that it is impossible that a man can keep company with one who is covered with soot without being partaker of the soot himself.
Another reason to Go Ghost is when I'm around Blue Pill men. They can't seem to build themselves up without tearing some other guy down. I try to get away from them as soon as they approach or else I won't come away without feeling dirty myself.
That we ought not to be disturbed by any news. When any thing shall be reported to you which is of a nature to disturb, have this principle in readiness, that the news is about nothing which is within the power of your will.
This one would apply to most media and some of the alternate media which is all doom porn.
The Hellenes are going to die destroyed by the Trojans. And why did you come hither? Was your desire in any danger? Was your aversion? Was your movement? Was your avoidance of things? He replies, "No, but the wife of my brother was carried off." Was it not then a great gain to be deprived of an adulterous wife?
Ha, that's how I feel about Feminism, it did me a favor in the end.
"Shall we be despised then by the Trojans?" What kind of people are the Trojans, wise or foolish? If they are wise, why do you fight with them? If they are fools, why do you care about them?
That's right, if they want them they can have them.
See God has sent you a man to show you that it is possible. Loot at me, who am without a city, without a house, without possessions, without a slave; I sleep on the ground; I have no wife, no children, no praetorium, but only the earth and heavens, and one poor cloak. And what do I want? Am I not without sorrow? am I not without fear? Am I not free?
Preach on brother Epictetus!
The man who is not under restraint is free, to whom things are exactly in that state in which he wishes them to be; but he who can be restrained or compelled or hindered or thrown into any circumstance against his will is a slave.
Precisely why shaming doesn't work on a Ghost anymore. It is an effort to throw him back into a situation against his will on his own power. I refuse to be slaves to Female Approval and it will take a great deal more than shaming to get me playing that game again.
To this matter before all you must attend, that you be never so closely connected with any of your former intimates or friends as to come to the same acts as he does. If you do not observe this rule, you will ruin yourself.
Personally I like to keep people a certain distance at all times. If they want to be friends, fine but if they start imposing on me, acting like I owe them something, get belligerent or disrespect me then it's Ghost Time.
The wise and good man neither himself fights with any person, nor does he allow another, so far as he can prevent it.
If other men are not being instigated by women into attacking me they usually try to provoke me into taking a swing at them. In either situation I don't argue or get flustered, I just wait them out until they realize it's going to be more trouble than it's worth. On other hand I don't get involved when others are fighting it out either, it's none of my business, I leave the area and Go Ghost.
Remembering this Socrates managed his own house and endured a very ill-tempered wife and a foolish son. For in what did she show her bad temper? In pouring water on his head as much as she liked, and in trampling on the cake sent him.
Filed that under the more things change the more they stay the same.
When a man has seemed to us to have talked with candor about his own affairs, how is it that at last we are ourselves also induced to discover to him our own secrets and we think this to be candid behavior? In the first place it seems unfair for a man to have listened to the affairs of his neighbor, and not to communicate to him also in turn our own affairs. Indeed men are often accustomed to say, I have told you all my affairs, will you tell me nothing of your own? Besides we have also this opinion that we can safely trust him who has already told us his own affairs; for the notion rises in our mind that this man could never divulge our affairs because he would be cautions that we also should not divulge his.
Now as this man has confidently entrusted his affairs to me, shall I also do so to any man whom I meet? No, for when I have heard, I deep silence, if I am of such a disposition; but he goes forth and tells all men what he has heard.
Very important, a Ghost says nothing to anyone that isn't strictly business and related to the job only. If he does have to say something additionally, he pretends like he doesn't know anything or throws out a bunch of happy-go-lucky fluff that doesn't mean anything. Be especially careful around Mr. Friendly who goes around getting in peoples business and bending anyone's ear who will listen. This type is looking for information he can use to stir up strife between others. Be friendly in return but Go Ghost at Warp Speed and stay away from them.
No man is free who is not master of himself.
Well that's it then.
There is plenty more where that came from, some of it is a little difficult to follow though. Just as I thought I was on to something it spirals off into other things but those are the ones that did stand out for me and it all validates why I've Gone Ghost.
The life of a Ghost is pure freedom compared to that of a Blue Pill Beta Provider who's adulterous wife will cuckold him with some type of Bad Boy. Once that happens, she will turn on him in the worst posible ways. There is no way in hell I'm going to put myself in either one of those positions playing the role of the Bad or the Nice Guy when I can just as easily Go Ghost. The job pays better and you can't beat the hours.
Gone Ghosting... and maybe buffalo hunting, too.
If you are going to carry, don't let anyone see it. It will attract too much of the wrong kind of attention. Particularly that of White Knights always looking out for an opportunity to save the planet.
Clarence Daniels had just crossed the threshold of Walmart's front doors on Tuesday, in search of coffee creamer for his wife, when the gun in hip holster gave a well-intentioned vigilante the idea he was up to something more sinister.
From the Walmart parking lot at 11110 Causeway Boulevard, Michael Foster, 43, of Lithia had watched Daniels, 62, take from his car the handgun — for which he holds a concealed carry permit — and place it on his hip underneath his coat, Hillsborough sheriff's deputies reported.
As Daniels entered the store, a label for the coffee creamer in his pocket in case he forgot the brand, Foster tackled him to the ground and placed him in a choke hold, sheriff's spokesman Larry McKinnon said.
"He's got a gun!" deputies said Foster shouted.
"I have a permit!" Daniels yelled back multiple times, McKinnon said.
The men struggled and were separated until law enforcement arrived on scene just before noon.
Foster was arrested and charged with battery.
"Unfortunately he tackled a guy that was a law-abiding citizen," McKinnon said. "We understand it's alarming for people to see other people with guns, but Florida has a large population of concealed weapons permit holders."
The Sheriff's Office recommends that vigilante-inclined citizens refrain from taking matters into their own hands, especially when an incident is gun-related.
"You better make sure there's a good reason," he added. "Otherwise you might be confronting a guy that is legally permitted to carry a gun."
Wasn't there a time not too long ago when no men went anywhere without being armed, ever? I don't know about you guys but it seems to me this White Knighting is happening with more frequency. Maybe men do need to start going around armed again. I have had a few close calls myself lately but they thought the better than to jump me and I'll just leave it at that. Probably a good thing for Clarence that no one did call 911 to report, gasp, my fingers tremble just writing it, "a gun"... eeeeek, there I said it. Then he would have had White Knight cops down on him. In which of course "fearing for their lives" they would have just killed him. MGTOW / Going Ghost... Your Life May Depend On It.
My knowledge of ancient writings has been limited to the Old Testament and the usual Greek and Latin classics that mainly had to do with history. There was enough in them though which mentioned the bad behavior of women and the worship thereof as goddesses that it reminded me of what we see occurring today in the form of feminism. During my research on Jezebel I was looking into the Pythia. A class of priestess in the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. Plutarch who's book I've read on Sparta was also priest there who was responsible for interpreting the omens of the Pythia (Oracle of Delphi).
I thought I would have a look into what that guy had to say about all that when something caught my attention. He was somewhat opposed to Stoics and Stoicism.... what, wait a minute. Was Stoicism a philosophy or some school of thought at one time? Isn't being stoic a manly quality kind of like the way the Spartans were and why would he be opposed to it?
Ok, let's take a look.
We do not possess a single complete work by any of the first three heads of the Stoic school: the ‘founder,’ Zeno of Citium in Cyprus (344–262 BC), Cleanthes (330-232 BC) or Chrysippus (279-206 BC). Chrysippus was particularly prolific, composing over 165 works, but we have only fragments of his works. The only complete works by Stoic philosophers that we possess are those by writers of Imperial times, Seneca (4 BC –65 AD), Epictetus (55–135 AD) and the Emperor Marcus Aurelius (121–180 AD) and these works are principally focused on ethics.
Stoics were concerned with the active relationship between cosmic determinism and human freedom, and the belief that it is virtuous to maintain a will (called prohairesis) that is in accord with nature. Because of this, the Stoics presented their philosophy as a way of life, and they thought that the best indication of an individual's philosophy was not what a person said but how that person behaved.
Later Stoics such as Seneca and Epictetus emphasized that, because "virtue is sufficient for happiness", a sage was immune to misfortune. This belief is similar to the meaning of the phrase "stoic calm", though the phrase does not include the "radical ethical" Stoic views that only a sage can be considered truly free, and that all moral corruptions are equally vicious.
Stoicism was one of the most important and influential traditions in the philosophy of the Hellenistic world. It claimed the adherence of a large portion of the educated persons in the Graeco-Roman world. It had considerable influence on the development of early Christianity. The Roman Stoics, Epictetus, Seneca, and Marcus Aurelius were widely read and absorbed by the Western cultural tradition. Indeed, the very word 'stoic' has, in the popular sense, become synonymous with 'philosophical' and has come to represent that courage and calmness in the face of adverse and trying circumstances which was the hallmark of the ancient Stoics.
That Hellenistic period was time when the world was transitioning from a Greek to a Roman one.
The Hellenistic period is the period of ancient Greek and eastern Mediterranean history between the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC and the emergence of the Roman Empire as signified by the Battle of Actium in 31 BC and the subsequent conquest of Ptolemaic Egypt the following year. At this time, Greek cultural influence and power was at its peak in Europe, Africa and Asia, experiencing prosperity and progress in the arts, exploration, literature, theatre, architecture, music, mathematics, philosophy, and science. It is often considered a period of transition, sometimes even of decadence or degeneration, compared to the brilliance of the Greek Classical era.
The Stoa Poikile or Painted Porch, originally called the Porch of Peisianax was erected during the 5th century BC and was located on the north side of the Ancient Agora of Athens. The Stoa Poikile was one of the most famous sites in ancient Athens, owing its fame to the paintings and loot from wars displayed in it. The Stoa was the location from which Zeno of Citium taught Stoicism. The philosophical school of Stoicism takes its name from having first been expounded here, and was derived from the Greek word stoa. Zeno taught and lectured to his followers from this porch.
Stoicism originally emerged at quite a volatile period in Greek history, when Athenian city-states were being conquered by foreign empires. It developed as a way of staying sane amid all that chaos. An important part of the therapy of Stoicism was to remind yourself at all times of what you can control and what you can’t. We can’t control geopolitics, we can’t control the weather, we can’t control the economy, we can’t control other people, we can’t even control our own bodies, not entirely anyway. The world is beyond our control. It’s a rough and unpredictable environment that is constantly changing. The only thing we can really control are our own thoughts and beliefs. If we remind ourselves of that, and focus our energy and attention on our own beliefs and opinions, then we can learn to cope wisely with whatever the world throws at us.
Basically those Stoic Greeks were taking a look around, seeing the ship was sinking and coming to the conclusion early on that there wasn't anything they could do to stop it. May as well kick back, go their own way and enjoy the decline. They couldn't change the world they lived in so they opted to change the world that they could, their own.
This all sounds very familiar.
Getting back to Plutarch (46-120 AD), I can start to understand why he didn't like this Stoic way of thinking. Being a Greek and a priest in the Temple of Apollo in Delphi Greece that would make him a member of the state or ruling class. He would have had an interest in keeping the traditions going. He needed the male disposability of those Greek Warriors coming in consulting his Oracles on their way to fighting wars for the empire but was going out of business as they realized there was nothing in it for them anymore because it was all getting hosed away back home.
The idea of Stoicism moved on into the early Roman world but seemed to have died out as life began to get cushy again. Greek gods and goddesses were replaced by Roman onesall the while Roman Emperors were increasingly declaring themselves to be gods too. Come to think of it, if ancient hypergamy was alive and well and the women where thinking themselves as goddesses what is a poor mortal Alpha Emperor to do? He would have to one up them in their narcissism. Which they did, then proceed to play the bad boy with impunity, which they did that too. Once again though the Romans like the Greeks were not too happy with all this nonsense. New ideas of living removed from the world, away from a degenerate society and it's gods came in the form of Christianity in place of Stoicism. They were saying screw this by going off grid leaving the empire to collapse all by itself. Which it eventually did despite all the shaming language and persecution aimed at those pesky Christians determined to go their own way.
There are a few audiobooks out on YouTube that should make for some good listening on the subject.
Another "See I Told You So". It's not just the bad behavior of females that men have to be wary of. It's also their White Knight enablers who will kill them for the sake of female approval. Those are the guys MGTOW have to go their own way or go ghost from for the most.
A false accusation of rape allegedly caused a man to beat his cousin to death in a hotel room Wednesday morning, according to State Troopers.
Beat to death by his own cousin. What ever happened to Bro's before Hoe's? If this dude was MGTOW he wouldn't have been in this situation to begin with.
Abraham S. Stine, 39, was charged Thursday with one count of second-degree murder for beating Wesley Lord, 37, to death. His girlfriend, Dominique Natalie Vasquez, 31, also was charged with one count of second-degree murder for her actions during the incident.
He wouldn't have been smoking crack either, he would have better things to do with his life.
According to charging documents, Vasquez had been smoking methamphetamine and drinking alcohol with Lord and two other men — one of whom is her third-party custodian — earlier in the evening. Vasquez and Lord started having consensual sex after one of the men went to the bathroom to take a shower.
The other man was present in the room while the sex was taking place and told troopers that at no time did Vasquez tell Lord to stop.
And guess who just happens to show up right in the middle of all this?
Vasquez and Lord stopped having sex when the man got out of the shower, at which time Stine showed up outside the hotel window. Vasquez, who was not wearing pants, told the two men to tell Stine that Lord had raped her. Both men complied, according to statements they made to troopers.
"Let's you and him fight".
Stine, who is a large man, crawled through the window and attacked Lord. According to one of the witnesses, Lord was a small man and did not fight back. The witness told troopers Stine punched Lord in the face for five to 10 minutes and would not stop when the witness told him he should. The witness said that at some point during the attack Vasquez covered Lord's mouth with her hand and appeared to be choking him.
White Knights will stop at nothing to gain female approval even if it means killing their own cousin.
Stine asked Vasquez for a rag after the attack was over and tried to wipe the blood from the floor, according to the witness. Both men told troopers they left after the incident and took a cab to the Super 8 Motel.
Stine called troopers at 4:58 a.m. and told them Lord had raped his girlfriend, Vasquez, while she was passed out in the room. Stine told troopers Vasquez left the hotel in the company of her third-party custodian after the attack and that Lord was passed out in the room.
Wow... you see how it is. This dumb ass thinks he is such a hero that he even calls up the State Troopers to let them know he just murdered his own cousin. These guys are a lost cause.
Troopers arrived and Stine led them to the hotel room. Troopers found Lord lying face down and naked on the floor. They began to handcuff him (The White Knighting continues) and noticed his hands were stiff and he was not breathing, according to charging documents. Medics were called and Lord was pronounced dead at the scene.
Lord showed obvious signs of injury to his head and appeared to have sustained blunt force trauma. There was a large pool of blood under his head, according to troopers.
The room was littered with empty soda and alcohol bottles and a bloody rag was found next to Lord's head.
Slowly, the light bulb begins to shine in more rational minds.
Vasquez admitted to placing her hand over Lord's mouth and told troopers she lied to Stine because she was afraid of what he would do if he found out she had cheated on him, according to charging documents.
Vasquez was charged with second-degree murder for trying to silence Lord during the beating and for "inciting Stine to beat (Lord) with the false allegation of rape," according to charging documents.
I counted not just one but at least five White Knights in this story and it took that guys death to make at least a couple of them realize that chick was lying all along. This is why there will never be an organized Men's Movement. Too many men still believe what women say is automatically true without questioning them and are all to ready to throw other men under the bus before any truth is sorted out.
This is also why men need to keep going their own way or go ghost because this is what the problem is. All some Jezebel has to do is point the finger and in the right set of circumstance it can get men killed by other men. White Knights seem to think all the justification they need to kill another man is the say so of some female. The PUA's (Pussy Beggars) will never talk about this side of their Game but I will. Because I have been fingered enough times to know this is how it goes down in the real world. No amount of Magic Game is going to get a man out of a situation where a false accusation can be made to stick, until it's too late to sort out. Then no amount of Game whatsoever will bring him back from the dead.
MGTOW... The Life You Save Could Be Your Own.
If there is one Princess that can not rescued it's the Jezebel. The Jezebel is far more dangerous to men than the most hardcore Feminist is. Although every Feminist aspires to be a Jezebel not all Feminists can be one. While they all possess the prerequisite hatred of men not all of them have the physical attractiveness necessary to disarm unsuspecting men of their better judgment.
This by the way is the only exception to the "AWALT" rule in which "NAWALT" does apply.
The goal of the Jezebel is the destruction of good men. She targets those men simply because they are good and naïve to her deception. Religious and political organizations are magnets for Jezebels. Jezebels are in a permanent state of rebellion against themselves, against men and even their own children. They perceive themselves to be victims therefore rationalize that anything they do to anyone "had it coming him". In that way all the wrong they do to others is justified in their minds having placed themselves in the right. Psychological justification is the essential component that enables the bad behavior. With this attitude that they are always right comes an arrogance that does not allow for any criticisms of their actions. For those who have fallen under their control one must simply do as the Jezebel says without question and even worship them for the privilege getting bossed around. To do anything less will trigger a vindictiveness that will not rest until adequate punishment can be metered out. This retaliation will be accomplished with passive aggressive hostility or malicious gossip intended to damage that person by discrediting them in some other way.
For those not under her control they must be either taken over or destroyed. Depending on if the target has something the Jezebel wants or is perceived as a threat.
The usual objects of desire the Jezebel is looking for are status and wealth. This is where they use sex as tool for control on men to get what they want. Once a man is stung he will be bled dry until he has nothing left to offer. Afterwards she will simply dismiss him as someone she is no longer "in love" with.
Anyone perceived as a threat or has rejected her sexual advances can expect the full force of the dark side to be thrown at them. There will be far more than malicious slander involved. It will be false accusations designed to get that person killed if possible through the use of proxy violence.
This is where the life of MGTOW is effective in defeating the Jezebel.
The MGTOW has nothing a Jezebel wants to begin with which puts him off her radar for the most part. He doesn't exhibit the usual indicators of wealth, power or status that she is hunting for. Expensive clothes, vehicles and homes are nothing more than shark bait to a MGTOW.
In addition MGTOW do not seek high Religious, Political, Institutional or Corporate positions which covers almost the rest. I say almost because there are circumstances when a MGTOW can find himself elevated closer to powerful positions by virtue of the fact that he is trusted over time not having any desire to take these position. If a Jezebel is nearby or materializes on the scene it will invoke her immediate wrath to divide and conquer.
She can't not allow someone like that around who may be able to see through the fog of her confusion.
In which case it will be up to the individual MGTOW to determine whether or not he has anything in his personal life which can be used against him. False accusations will fly and if there is even a hint that there may be some truth to it he is doomed. The powers that be will seek to protect their own positions at the expense of the accused.
At the same time if a MGTOW is bullet proof in his ways the attacks will be her own undoing. It will even be an opportunity for him to strengthen any areas of weakness that come under fire. Eventually others will become weary of her escalating troublemaking at that will be the end of her.
The Jezebel always overplays her hand.
The rest of the way MGTOW will have to avoid all contact when possible. Any communication which is less than worshipful or isn't in total agreement with them can result in an attack. Even unknowingly coming into a too close of proximity gives them an opportunity to point the finger instigating violence.
These evasive maneuvers would not be necessary if it wasn't for the White Knighting that is still very prevalent in the real world. Because of men's need for female approval they somehow believe assaulting other men to gain it is perfectly heroic. Those are just the kind of Blue Pill men the Jezebel seeks out to do her bidding.
A MGTOW maintaining his indifference, his emotional detachment from the provocation of being fingered while standing his ground as the moment passes is enough for the White Knight to realize there was no real threat involved. Our hero sulks away reflecting on what just happened while she is pissed that her ploy failed to achieve it's desired end... Let's you and him fight.
It's a win / win for MGTOW.
A Jezebel is defeated, a Blue Pill wannabe hero moves a little closer to the Red Pill and a MGTOW glows with the satisfaction of knowing he is winning the war without fighting the battles.
MGTOW... Wining Without Fighting.
GWW called it 2 years ago, that Feminism would self destruct all on its own. Before then the Manosphere had been saying basically the same thing only describing it as the Misandry Bubble. That famous post which explained in detail how Feminism would play itself out but it was GWW who came up with the term Fempocalypse. The future point in time when the economic prosperity that enabled Feminism to become prominent would end when men would withhold their surplus labor from women and society. We see that now with Grass Eaters and MGTOW.
It was also predicted that Feminists would not back down allowing the situation to stabilize by leaving men some if any incentives to come back into the program. No way that's going to happen. That instead they would double downmaking even more outlandish demands on men which would ultimately lead to the Misandry Bubble blowing. We are also seeing that now with the increasing public rejection of Feminism and Feminists.
So here we have our fearless InfoWarrior Paul Joseph Watson to explain just how crazy the Feminists are getting as of 2014 and some of the rejection already blowing back at them.
Yeap, they have lost it alright and I agree that they will continue to lose their grip on reality as it sets in on them.
Here was the original Fempocalypse video from 2012.
And while economists in Japan are freaking out over Japanese men going their own way, men don't actually have to consciously go their own way to bring about a Fempocalypse. They don't need to start rioting all over the place like in London, or begin waking up en masse to the fact that the "male privilege" they supposedly enjoy amounts to "shut up and get to the back of the line" the way it did at the Occupy protests. All that needs to happen is for us to keep right on giving women everything they want and keep right on marginalizing men, and eventually there won't be enough surplus productivity on the ground to hold up the increasingly bloated system women require, and it will fall.
Looks like we're there sister.
MGTOW... Good Night, Thanks For Playing, Happy 2015.
It always amuses me how the married dudes can't bring themselves to admit they made a huge mistake by signing up for the Marriage 2.0 upgrade.
To think that could have been me once but not anymore. They will have to find some other sucker to buy them a house they can throw him out of. Maybe those ISIS dudes would be happy to sign up for that deal.
This morning I got into smaller discussion with my wife right felt that there was a lack of respect in the discussion. So I decided to Institute one of my beliefs with regards to you staying married and asserting yourself.
Let me warn you married guys right here. Once you leave they can call the cops and make up any story they want. The cops and the system will go with anything she says. At that point you lose everything. You better stay there and video what happens. Take the beating if she throws one then you got her. Then you have proof the bitch is crazy and she is the one lying. Then she gets arrested and is the one that goes away.
Let me also warn you soon to be married guys. Now that things have gotten this bad to where men are forced to video women's bad behavior in order to protect themselves you are better off staying unmarried. It amazes me how so many dudes think this is never going to happen to them, until it does.
When you aren't getting anywhere positive in discussion the best thing may be to take a walk, take a break, go to your second location,
Oh I took a break alright, a permanent one, by booting them out of my first location, problem solved with no further interruptions or relocations required.
in my case it was 430 and I had a bug out bag ready to go which is really just had a big hug was totally prepared to chill out in an urban setting.
Ask yourself if this is any way to live? Keeping a "bug out" bag ready to go for any moment when princess throws a temper tantrum. Screw that.
For the most of the morning I stayed at a McDonalds right grab a cup of coffee then later went to a restaurant or listen to some good music and talking with some interesting people and after taking another hour long bike ride and ended up at a park shot this video and enjoy the Morning Sun and I warmed up. This 45 hour track must have made it in person because I received a call from my wife and she was very loving and apologetic and asked me to please come home but she might reward me in some way. This motivated me quite well as I was home in the next 10 minutes.
Reward? I don't think so, it's not worth all the trouble to me. While LTRs can be nice at times, the one day in a hundred when a storm isn't blowing, most of the time it isn't. Not to mention the legal liabilities they come with like getting kicked out of your home and thrown into jail on a trumped up false allegation. Screw that... again.
Happiness is peace of mind, a peaceful life and a peaceful home, not a piece of ass. None of those things will come with packing a squaw. It probably never did but nowadays it can be particularly hazardous for men to have them around.
With emotionally out of control women on the one side and a violently out of control police state on the other. This is no place I want to be in the middle of. There are plenty of other places men can find happiness that are not in squeezed in between lunatics and psychopaths. I'll be going my own way thank you very much.
