MetaJordan Peterson, Fallacies, and the Tragic State of this Sub (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by [deleted]x2

Update - The "mods" on their high-and-mighty throne of egomaniacal self-righteousness saw fit to thrust their mighty shafts into their own self-proclaimed support for free speech and civil debate, and banned me. Somehow I can still edit my post, though.
And the mods went out of their way to delete every single comment which supports JP and demeans their own high-and-mighty self-aggrandizement. If you want some quality entertainment, check out http://archive.is/jKDhl. Shows exactly which comments the mods removed.
For those of you who have any sense left in you, get the hell out of TRP. I know you all feel that it's going to help you on a "journey towards becoming a man." And maybe so. But once you've learned what there is to learn (which doesn't take more than a few hours), go out into the real world and put into practice. Reddit and TRP is just a stepping-stone. Until you realize that, you're still indoctrinated.
Get off this Internet forum and stop looking up to crowd-sourced opinions and praising the words of "mods" and "endorsed contributors" as gospel. You have more important things to do in life then argue with a bunch of Internet strangers.
Think for yourselves and do whatever the fuck you want to. It's your life.
Oh, and for the mods悠 don't really give a fuck if you disagree with me about religion, "pick-up," what a "real man" is, the existence of dominance hierarchies, and about the "feminine imperative." Who fucking cares? The fact that you're all so upset about this really hurts the image you're trying to project onto the community熔ne of respectability, "I'm so much smarter than you," and "anyone who disagrees with me is retarded."
It's actually quite entertaining to see y'all clambering over each other trying to virtue signal and show how much status you have.
And I really do have to thank TRP. It pointed me in the right direction, and yet has also shown me exactly what direction not to take. I can't thank you all enough.
Real men have better things to do than comment on Internet forums and argue with strangers. Yes, I was fucking retarded for making this post. Do you really respect anyone who wastes hours of his time moderating an Internet forum, for Christ's sakes?
So I encourage you all to go ahead, be smart, and delete all your Reddit posts and accounts. You have nothing left to get out of this site, and you know that. You'll learn more on one day outside than you could read in a year on Reddit.
Anyways, go make something of yourselves. Bye.

Introduction

There's a been a whole charade of backlash and relentless vitriol against Jordan Peterson by a ton of members on this sub recently.
Just yesterday, the top, pinned post was the moderator making fun of Jordan Peterson's lecture on psychopathy and pick-up artists. He simply took a transcript from his speech during a university lecture and edited out all the punctuation to make it seem like a bunch of nonsensical ramble.
Anyways, I thought this sub was supposed to bolster good quality content, not turn it into a fucking dumpster fire.
He's right. Pick-up artists are inherently psychopathic. And the fact that the creator of this sub is upset about this is absolutely inane, and really goes to show where it's headed.
Pick-up artistry doesn't actually fall in line, at all, with the "Red Pill.
I can already here you yelling that it's not inherently psychopathic. Or that psychopathy isn't bad. But that's besides the matter.
Pick-up is inherently for low-status men, against that which embraces the flourishing of the masculine, and counter-productive for those who are attempting to truly ascend the male dominance hierarchy.
Even if you disagree with the caricature of pick-up artists as fedora-wearing sleaze-bags, you're missing the point. Pick-up doesn't focus on the actualization of the man. It doesn't further one's status or mission. Instead, it places emphasis upon the female and encourages the male to escape his true imperative. The intrinsic motive of "pick-up" and "Game" is weak and counter-productive.
It's not just semantics either. Pick-up itself encompasses a a wide swath of beliefs, and all fall under an anti-masculine, manipulative sphere of ideology.
Still doubtful that pick-up is anti-Red Pill and anti-masculine? Great, cause I'm about to explain it to you.

The Male Dominance Hierarchy

Men have their own evolutionarily driven dominance hierarchy. They compete, fight, and struggle towards its peak. The females sit idly on the side, waiting to choose those who emerge on top.
Men hold each other to a high standard. As does the individual. You have a personal obligation to become all you can be. To follow your true calling, listen to the individuated self, and righteously strive towards the metaphorical kingdom of God on Earth.
A real man engages his true mission up the male dominance hierarchy and focuses solely on himself and actualizing his plurapotentiality, narrowing a multitude of possibilities into one single frame of existence as he becomes who he truly is.
If a man tries to escape his evolutionary prerogative or that which calls his Being forward, he will suffer and never live a fulfilling, meaningful existence. It's natural law.

Pick-Up

How does pick-up fit in with that?
You're shying away from becoming who you can be, and attempting to circumvent the hierarchy by manipulating the highly-perceptive feminine into thinking that you are high status, when you're not. And that never plays out well庸or the male. No male will ever be truly sexually successful through a facade of status, memorized routines and lines, and a weak masculine foundation.
Essentially, you're cheating nature. There are no shortcuts to the top.
As a result, if the facade and veneer of sophistication succeeds, we get men who are inherently low status, unattractive, and have no real value fucking women who think they are high-status, attractive, and capable of climbing the dominance hierarchy. It's bad for society and men themselves.
"Pick-up" and "Game" masquerade as facades for any true imperative of climbing the male dominance hierarchy. It痴 a rationalized, half-baked attempt for men to cheat the rules of reality熔ne that will never succeed in the end.
撤ick-up is for low-status men.
"Pick-up artists" and teachers of "pick-up" use routines, verbal tricks, and superficial elements with the "veneer of sophistication" to trick women into thinking they are something they are not. Low status men who don't have the ability nor the potential to become what they could be, so they have to resort to displaying all the behaviors that a high status man naturally, outwardly manifests without being the high status man themselves.
The "Red Pill" isn't about low status men trying to "pick up" women or manipulating them subconsciously (from both frames of reference, that is) into liking them. It's about becoming a truly high status man who lives for his own values and needs, naturally attracting women.

Peterson's Dilemma

Just because you disagree with one or two of Jordan Peterson's statements doesn't mean you should throw out the baby with the bathwater.
He's studied, endlessly, the horrors Western civilization was capable of in the 20th century, and has a deep understanding of the human mind in every facet imaginable. He's a trained clinical psychologist, and not just any old one at that. He has over ten thousand citations on his psychology papers, he taught at the most prestigious university in the world, and wrote the best-selling non-fiction book in the Western world at the moment.
He has good intentions. I can't believe how close-minded some of you could be to call him "blue-pilled" or any more of that blabber. In fact, he probably understands more about society, the political spectrum, and intersexual affairs more than any of you. No, he definitely does.
He痴 all for the individual and for the bolstering of young men both as individual, masculine beings and as benefactors of society. In fact, he痴 probably the first well-known public figure to speak about such important topics that directly relate to this sub痴 motives in recent times. You should be thanking him for bringing a new light to masculinity and for fighting against the radical liberals and those who condemn 鍍oxic masculinity.
Just because he knows certain things doesn't mean he has to speak about them in public. His "credibility" would be shot off the moment he mentions any real truths to society.
You don't think Peterson knows exactly what women are attracted to? You don't think he knows exactly how bitter and resentful men are? You don't think he knows exactly how society is structured?
How well would it go if he starts spewing out true female nature on some random podcast, or proves that society is run on a set of dominance hierarchies, and it's an inevitable fact that human nature will always tend towards these paradigms, no matter what?
He's not a fucking retard. He knows exactly how all these things work. Just because he keeps his mouth shut so he can keep a living and not get death threats doesn't give you the right to start attacking him. I'd like to see how you measure up to the man himself.
I don稚 agree with everything Peterson says himself, but not for the retarded reasons TRP 塗igher-ups are attacking him for. He痴 out to help you, and if you can稚 see what he痴 trying to do there痴 nobody coming to rescue you. He痴 making your pathway to powerful masculinity and a healthy sense of what a man is much, much easier. Jesus, have some gratitude.

Conclusion

This dogma that has been circulating the sub is drowning us all.
Don稚 any of you have anything better to do than hate on a psychology professor who痴 making radical changes, especially those that indirectly support a conservative political agenda which I'm sure many of you espouse? The only reasonable explanation is that none of his critics have read a word of what he痴 preached or watched a single one of his acclaimed lectures.
Peterson痴 the man giving a sermon out on the mountain to thousands of eager listeners, and those who criticize him are a bunch of insignificant sheep roaming out among the fields below. If you have a real contention, stop complaining and have some respect for yourself.
Peterson's words absolutely should be scrutinized. But not with half-hearted write-offs, pseudo-intellectual polemical attacks, ad hominem criticisms, and certainly not with satirical, biased posts which fail to present sufficient evidence against that which he argues.
So I don't know where the fuck this sub is headed, but honestly I couldn't care less. If you all drive yourselves into the ground in a carnival of fury and self-righteousness, go right ahead.

Man you chucklefucks really don't get it. My post was "debate ideas not the man" and you immediately run for a defense of a man.

Introduction There's a been a whole charade of backlash and relentless vitriol against Jordan Peterson by a ton of members on this sub recently.

Just yesterday, the top, pinned post was the moderator making fun of Jordan Peterson's lecture on psychopathy and pick-up artists. He simply took a transcript from his speech during a university lecture and edited out all the punctuation to make it seem like a bunch of nonsensical ramble.

It was a copy/paste from youtube's transcription.

Anyways, I thought this sub was supposed to bolster good quality content, not turn it into a fucking dumpster fire.

Concern troll.

He's right. Pick-up artists are inherently psychopathic.

Ah, good point.

And the fact that the creator of this sub is upset about this is absolutely inane, and really goes to show where it's headed.

You know nothing of the origins of this subreddit if you think that's where we're "headed." We were already there, who the fuck are you?

Pick-up artistry doesn't actually fall in line, at all, with the "Red Pill.窶

I can already here you yelling that it's not inherently psychopathic. Or that psychopathy isn't bad. But that's besides the matter.

Pick-up is inherently for low-status men, against that which embraces the flourishing of the masculine, and counter-productive for those who are attempting to truly ascend the male dominance hierarchy.

Ah, good point. The age-old advice: Just don't be low status. Be attractive, don't be unattractive.

Listen, I think learning about TRP is useful whether you're a natural chad with money falling out of your pockets or you're a loser with spaghetti falling out of your pockets. But let's face it, a lot of the guys who end up here are the ones who need the most help.

Even if you disagree with the caricature of pick-up artists as fedora-wearing sleaze-bags, you're missing the point. Pick-up doesn't focus on the actualization of the man. It doesn't further one's status or mission. Instead, it places emphasis upon the female and encourages the male to escape his true imperative. The intrinsic motive of "pick-up" and "Game" is weak and counter-productive.

"Actualization of the man." You are simply taking manhood and framing it in a feminine-primary light. You are doing exactly what we've been talking about on the red pill for years.

Game isn't weak and counter productive, it is a very useful tool that a lot of smart guys came up with to help awkward idiots learn how to communicate with women. That doesn't make you less of a man or prevent the "actualization of the man" or whatever newaged nonsense you're on about.

Learning things like agree and amplify aren't just cheap tricks, they're insights into human psychology that help you get a new perspective on how humans interact.

It seems like you think game is just sitting around memorizing pickup lines. That's fucking retarded, and the only way somebody could come to that conclusion is if they're new here and haven't read the fucking sidebar.

When you internalize concepts like agree and amplify, you aren't regurgitating prewritten lines. You're understanding why people like it, why it pushes the right buttons, and then you're using your own wit to talk with other humans while avoiding the pitfalls of being overly defensive, boorish, or antisocial.

For some guys that didn't have dads or role models, this is more important than you'd think.

But I'm glad your advice is just "be high value." Shut down TRP guys, this dude just solved sex.

It's not just semantics either. Pick-up itself encompasses a a wide swath of beliefs, and all fall under an anti-masculine, manipulative sphere of ideology.

Who defines masculine in this scenario? Because if I decide to pick up women and use whatever I've learned here, I sure as hell am as masculine as they get. You don't get to decide if I'm a man or not. Neither does Peterson. Neither does the feminine imperative.

In case you didn't get it yet, that's the fucking point of TRP. To reject the notion that other people get to define masculinity in order to control you.

Still doubtful that pick-up is anti-Red Pill and anti-masculine? Great, cause I'm about to explain it to you.

The Male Dominance Hierarchy Men have their own evolutionarily driven dominance hierarchy. They compete, fight, and struggle towards its peak. The females sit idly on the side, waiting to choose those who emerge on top.

Men hold each other to a high standard. As does the individual. You have a personal obligation to become all you can be. To follow your true calling, listen to the individuated self, and righteously strive towards the metaphorical kingdom of God on Earth.

Jesus Christ that's some meaningless new-age drivel.

Your words: You have a personal obligation to become all you can be.

How do you get from point A to point B? So far your advice has amounted to "stop being low value." But how? How do you get an anti-social beta who doesn't know how to talk to women to suddenly become good at talking to women?

If only there were a forum dedicated to helping men solve that problem.... If only.

A real man engages his true mission up the male dominance hierarchy and focuses solely on himself and actualizing his plurapotentiality, narrowing a multitude of possibilities into one single frame of existence as he becomes who he truly is.

Ah, there we go again. Somebody telling me what a real man does in an attempt to get me to follow his rules. I've fallen for that trick before. That's what lead me here.

Listen you're really on about this dominance hierarchy nonsense, but some guys just want to get better at maximizing their sexual strategy. Some to start families, others to get laid, while others do it just to know they can.

If a man tries to escape his evolutionary prerogative or that which calls his Being forward, he will suffer and never live a fulfilling, meaningful existence. It's natural law.

Did a voice in your head tell you that?

Seems to me we're driven to make babies, and beyond that there isn't much more evolution says.

Pick-Up How does pick-up fit in with that?

You're shying away from becoming who you can be, and attempting to circumvent the hierarchy by manipulating the highly-perceptive feminine into thinking that you are high status, when you're not. And that never plays out well窶杷or the male. No male will ever be truly sexually successful through a facade of status, memorized routines and lines, and a weak masculine foundation.

Essentially, you're cheating nature. There are no shortcuts to the top.

That's where you're wrong, bucko. If I have more sex than you, and make more babies, then as far as evolution is concerned, I win. That's all there is to it.

I disagree that game is cheating - but then again I don't think anything is cheating because there are no rules.

But here you are again, trying to define proper masculinity by appeasing the fempire and saying you must only be high value or fuck off. Well, I don't play by their rules, and I don't play by yours either. If I want to do things my way, I'm going to. And if you don't like that, fuck you.

As a result, if the facade and veneer of sophistication succeeds, we get men who are inherently low status, unattractive, and have no real value fucking women who think they are high-status, attractive, and capable of climbing the dominance hierarchy. It's bad for society and men themselves.

Those poor hapless women. Society is truly doomed.

Wait.. but why? Oh because you said so?

"Pick-up" and "Game" masquerade as facades for any true imperative of climbing the male dominance hierarchy. It窶冱 a rationalized, half-baked attempt for men to cheat the rules of reality窶俳ne that will never succeed in the end.

I don't know if all you JP trolls are just the same guy but it seems like you hide the fact that you don't have a point in a "veneer of sophistication." Let's count the ten dollar words and see how it compares to your point.

You've used the phrase "male dominance hierarchy" a number of times- but your nebulous definition leaves much to be desired. Is it just the big eternal competition to see who gets the most access to women? But here you've presented us a list of caveats that exclude things like actually getting access to women in JP unapproved ways. Who gets to say what the fuck you mean? Muscles are approved, wit is unapproved. Dressing well is approved, but overdressing is unapproved.

Good god, we're going to need referees to play by your rules.

"The actualization of the man." Sounds to me like somebody just took a philosophy 101 class. If you had paid attention in that class, you'd remember the part about different strokes for different folks.

You've got your own idea of what self-actualization means. Fair enough, go do it and leave us alone.

窶弃ick-up窶 is for low-status men.

"Pick-up artists" and teachers of "pick-up" use routines, verbal tricks, and superficial elements with the "veneer of sophistication" to trick women into thinking they are something they are not.

What? Clever? I would argue if you're smart enough to work in jokes and beat shit tests then you probably are clever.

I don窶冲 understand what is so complicated about this? Are we supposed to be in complete alignment with anyone who has some good ideas?

[窶転Prophets_Prey 5 points6 points  (6 children)

The whole idea of pick up is based on selling a lie. It's deluding yourself and others into thinking you're something you're not. If you want to do that without actually having any substance to back that up, go ahead. It's your life.

[窶転1LowCreddit 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Bullshit. Pickup is about sales techniques. Is it easier to sell a better product? Yes it is. Can a good product not be sold because of poor selling? Absolutely. Lifting is TRP's first advice for a reason, but game is still an important part.

This is exactly the feminization that ruins the PUA community. "We should only focus on self-improvement. Game is misogyny." Bullshit. Game works. Lifting works. Do both and ignore the trolls.

[窶転Prophets_Prey -1 points0 points  (0 children)

You're comparing apples to oranges. I'm talking about the pick up community being without substance. They're all delusional selling each other delusions. Trp is more than just pick up, it's actually having substance. Before you get your knickers in a twist, understand what I'm talking about.

Knowing how to game is fine. But if that's all you know, can you really say you're an actualised man? You've got to have more going for you in your life. Take your low IQ, emotional rant elsewhere.

[窶転Pope_Lucious -1 points0 points  (3 children)

We all put on various skins to get what we want in life.

Do you walk into a business proposal naked with your dick swinging, grunting whatever incoherent nonsense you have in your head?

Or do you participate in the social convention of wearing a suit and tie and do the necessary social dances to get what you want?

[窶転Prophets_Prey 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Bad comparison. I'd rather go in there knowing that I actually have substance to back up my claims, not some rehearsed script. God forbid they ask me for proof and I don't have anything to show for it.

I'm not going to weigh in on the sub-argument here, but I'll say this: As someone who attends a liberal college, I would KILL for a professor with the amount of balls Peterson has. A lot of you don't realize how bad it is until you get a dosage of college Feminazi rhetoric right to the dome.

I don't know how you dudes stomach that shit. If I was in college this day and age I'd make such a scene and likely get booted out. About 10 years ago when I did my time at a State College it was by all means very liberal (My Poli-Sci teacher was candidly putting Castro on a pedestal and giving people A's for writing "BUSH BAD CAUSE CHRISHTINS ARE EVIL") - but it was nothing compared to this straight up indoctrination day-care center bullshit.

You don't have much of an argument if you resort to calling names. If you're going to be dramatic, condescending to others here, and get emotional, then yes perhaps it's best you leave.

You're entitled to your opinions, but your post simply was incorrect in quite a few assertions.

There's too much to go into here and I don't need to as one of the mods addressed it quite well.

Essentially, lecturing other men on how they should live their lives is not your place to do, nor mine. Times have changed and men react accordingly, with each pursuing whatever path they feel is best.

If you really believe men should live according to someone else's faux sense of obligations, then perhaps the blue pill is a better fit for you.

The thing that bothers me about Peterson is that if people don't agree with one thing he's saying (for example religious things) they dismiss everything.

He has great points about the importance of being an individual and not letting the group hold you back. He encourages forming strong relationships with important people around you who want your best. He wants people to be honest with themselves and others so you aren't afraid of being exposed because it turns out there is no need to hide what ever they're afraid will be exposed.

Secondly, he advocates strongly for monogamy and and two parent households as this is the best alternative for children. He wants a culture where neither sexes would cheat and people wouldn't settle but instead find someone who both try everyday to improve themselves (meaning you see someone not for what they are but what they are trying to become and you want to help them). If you want to have children and want to provide the best for them then finding and trying to have a two-parent supportive household seems to be currently the best option and the toolkit TRP provides is a great way to achieve that imo.

Personally, I don't care for religion but I listened to a lot to his lectures on the bible because I find it interesting and I believe there has to be some value in it if it has survived for so long and once again just because you don't agree with some things in the bible doesn't mean you should dismiss it entirely.

[窶転clearedmycookies 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Don't impose your fucking morality on others. The TRP reveals sexual strategy and reveals why it works using ideas from evolution and natural selection.

Don't impose morality? Is that what you would say to those protesting their authoritarian governments?

Absolutely impose your morality on others. Judge them, not personally but by their ideas and groups. That way people discuss, debate, and grow.

[窶転nietzschethegreat 1 points1 points [recovered]

This isn't morality.

You're a man. She's a woman. To say that the feminine, the selectors of Nature, are all fundamentally corrupt Beings sounds more like a complaint from a man who is unable to successfully achieve their approval. And that doesn't mean there's something wrong with the women窶琶t's on the individual.

If you find that 3.5 billion people on this planet are hard-wired to corruption and disgust, maybe the 1 person which is you may have something to do with it. That's no fucking "morality."

Again you are ascribing a subset of MGTOW beliefs to the entire population, based on a strawman. Personally, I don't ascribe to the MGTOW ideas.

But I have plenty of buddies who are MGTOW but still sleep around, and don't think women are corrupt or disgusting. Like most people, you are attributing a simplistic set of beliefs, driven by a misguided sense of morality, on a complex and nuanced subject. I've seen plenty of men, who even respect and love women, live a MGTOW lifestyle simply because of cost benefit analysis.

[窶転sebastianconcept 41 points42 points  (8 children)

Anything that deviates from genuine desire should be predictably, something low value for any intelligent man (and womam BTW) so, while some skills in PUA are important to get the basics right, those should only be a small aid in a greater genuine experience that a man build to get a woman he likes. That窶冱 how both enjoy a better game and a sweet game of power.

I am all for using game to grab hypergamy窶冱 attention inside your frame but a good man, a great alpha, has no mercy in questioning the ethics of its game. Objetivizing woman (people for the case) to an amoral extreme there is no question is a road to psychopathy. Not even disputable.

I窶冦 new to this community so I窶冦 surprised to see animosity towards Jordan Peterson. The man is one of the very few Western Civilization heros in a time where their mortal enemies are having more momentum than ever in the history of the Cultural War.

If you can question technically JBP then fine, that窶冱 a discussion worthy to have to advance science. But, due to the position he has and what he defends, if you are engaging in dialectic boxing to react to something he said that made you uncomfortable, then notice that is an automatic reaction because you are ego invested so much in yourself that you don窶冲 care about the civilization that gave you all the opportunities that you are enjoying and, secondarily, subconsciously preparing yourself to align to its enemies or be inadvertently useful to them.

Just getting rid of PUA is effectively handicapping yourself- the game is exactly the same but now you don't have an advantage.

[窶転VisualCandidate 24 points25 points  (5 children)

Ive found great benefit from TRP ... not the pickup community embedded in the dermal of this community. From us MEN sharing posts about increasing value, what our mind sets should be while going forward and even speaking about the overarching themes of politics, sociology the SJW community, and the list goes on.

TRP is great if we peruse the content and consume it with a grain of salt. However there is no quick fix here, just men who are ... who should be, sharing the knowledge and wisdom that whatever change we wish to achieve IS attainable. Pickup artistry to me has always been "beta" mentality. To be consumed and rehearsed when presenting yourself is quite frankly the most ostentatious idiocy a man can have.

The point of red pill is not AWALT so lets F*** all the Sl**s, the point of TRP is that well... WOMEN are NOT the goal, they should never be, they must not be. The GOAL is make yourself the best you can be, but maybe its our fault... we do live in a world of nearly instant gratification. What right do we have to tell you to get your head out of your a** and start paying attention to the world you live in, more importantly yourself? Any MAN caught up with vagina is not worthy of it... its cyclical bullsh** . Pu**y is not the end game it never has been it never should be. Because at the end of the day what value will you bring to your family, allies and community by being a philanderer.

AFAIK, at its origin TRP was purely about sexual strategies. IMO though, that is just the entry level. RP at the advanced level applies to a much wider audience: including judging/analyzing/interpreting non-sexual targets.

[窶転[deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

That's actually not the point of the red pill.

Over time it's expanded to what you describe but at it's very core it's about sexual strategy and navigating the sexual market place. Not about becoming the person you've always wanted to be career wise/self actualization wise

I do however prefer the newer and expanded methodology

Interesting, Ive been on TRP for a few months now, exposed to it through MGTOW, SJW, Feminism on Youtube.

Always love a good heated debate.

He's right. Pick-up artists are inherently psychopathic. And the fact that the creator of this sub is upset about this is absolutely inane, and really goes to show where it's headed.

JBP here makes a perhaps-true claim, and then uses the moral underpinning of it to shame the target of that claim. I like JBP but this is a tactic taken straight out of the playbook of the people he dislikes so much.

In reality, pick-up artistry may be psychopathic indeed, but then so what? Is it bad for society? Probably. But then so is spinning plates forever and never marrying. What would JBP think of redpillers? Would he carefully analyze our points, or discard us with the label of "nihilistics" or "sociopaths"?

Pick-up artistry doesn't actually fall in line, at all, with the "Red Pill.窶

As you already know, pick-up artists discovered game, from which is founded our knowledge of intersexual dynamics. There is definitely a line of descent here and you can't deny it. Moreover, Game remains fundamental to TRP. "Frame", a core Game concept, is Rollo's rule #1. You very well know TRP advocates approaching women, dealing with shit tests, giving her mystery and excitement. You know very well that at least 50% of posts are about picking up women or maintaining arousal in a relationship. PUA may not "fall in line" with TRP, but you have to be blind not to see the overlap.

I can already here you yelling that it's not inherently psychopathic. Or that psychopathy isn't bad. But that's besides the matter.

Why would it be besides the matter? It's actually a cornerstone of TRP that sexual strategy is amoral, and that arguing from morals is forbidden here. It's actually very interesting to discuss whether or not PUA is psychopathic (I'd say it is. Helped from the fact that psychopathy is one of the components of the most potent combo of psychological traits in terms of sexual attraction: dark triad).

Pick-up doesn't focus on the actualization of the man. It doesn't further one's status or mission. Instead, it places emphasis upon the female and encourages the male to escape his true imperative. The intrinsic motive of "pick-up" and "Game" is weak and counter-productive.

Depends if one's mission is to get laid like a warlord (TRP's top post of all times). Same with PUAs. These were men on a mission. The mission to annihilate a lifetime's status of "being unfuckable". You may think it sad, or psychopathic indeed. But you can't deny they had a vision and that they poured their entire soul into it, as much as the Olympic athlete or the arctic explorer. Nobody would know the name of "Neil Strauss" if it weren't for that phase of his life, even if he regrets it so much now.

You make the classic, fundamental mistake of thinking that TRP's message of "focusing on your mission, not your woman" implies that you should somehow not engage with women at all. Sexual desire is natural. Men are horny. Men having to do the bulk of the seduction work is usual and expected (burden of performance). You can't expect men not to think about how to make "it" happen. Sure it doesn't mean you should make "pick-up" your mission, and sure it's a sad thing if men focus a large amount of their time on it. But please don't throw the baby with the bathwater. We need game, and as everything we need practice to get good at it. A healthy, regular, practice of game keeps your intersexual relationship skills sharp. It keeps your abundance mentality sharp. It replenishes your set of plates spinning when some are falling.

Men need sexual gratification. Celibacy, even voluntary, does not do good to the male's brain (catholic priests anyone?). Lack of sex will definitely boost our will to succeed, but continuous lack of sex despite efforts will turn any man insane (Elliot Rodger anyone?). Sex is necessary. And sex won't happen without a modicum of Game. Even the most good-looking man on earth needs to be able to entertain a conversation with a woman that doesn't make him sound like a retard, in order to get her into bed. Game is life-enabling. Game is a gift that was given to us by our PUA predecessors. Praise Be Unto Them.

A real man engages his true mission up the male dominance hierarchy and focuses solely on himself and actualizing his plurapotentiality, narrowing a multitude of possibilities into one single frame of existence as he becomes who he truly is.

You're talking about "male dominance hierarchy" as this grand abstract universal virtuous concept. It's not. We compete in a multitude of small, local, and time-bound dominance hierarchies. When Mystery experimented with over-the-top peacocking, it was an experiment in how he could establish himself at the top of the "men-in-this-club-who-don't-care-that-what-they-wear-is-silly" dominance hierarchy in that club that night. Also, so engrossed in the concept, you seem to forget the very fundamental reason men do dick-measuring contests to compete in the hierarchy. That's right. Being selected as a mate by a female human.

So sure enough, you can argue that PUA implies "manipulation". But why is this necessarily against the rules of competition for the hierarchy?

As a comparison, take advertisement. Pure attempts at manipulating the consumer to buy the product. Picture a market composed of a product A of slightly higher quality, competing with a product B of much-higher advertisement success. Product B dominates the market, until driving product A out of competition. Which one was the top of the dominance hierarchy (market)? Sure from a technological perspective, or a moral perspective, you would have preferred product A to win. But the market is holistic. It doesn't care about morals. It takes everything into account.


You don't have to have an emotional response to seeing all mods and most ECs criticizing JBP. I like him. I agree with 99% of the things he says. To me the most refreshing, intellectually-honest mind to come around since Sam Harris. I also understand the point of his critics (the intellectually honest ones of course, not the radicals on the left who simply discard him as a nazi). As the latest post by redpillschool reminded, the point is not to support blindly or criticize blindly specific people, but to analyze ideas and then support/criticize them. I read your ideas on PUAs, analyzed them from my perspective, decided to criticize them, and told you what I think of them, without having to retort to ad-hominem towards JBP (whose ideas, again, I overwhelmingly like). You could have followed the exact same approach in your "PUA is bad and is not red-pill" argument, without having to throw in all that emotion which rose entirely from your anger at seeing people disliking JBP.

Binary thinking is a common problem with the plebs who don't get it yet - they would much rather pick a side just to say "fuck the other team" than live in the grey. The grey is much harder on the brain - requires significant critical thinking skills to identify where your beliefs don't quite align with an authority figure (or even more difficult, when they don't align with your other beliefs).

I received a great piece of advice, "There are people out there who spent their entire lives focused on one subject. If we're lucky enough, they wrote books about that subject. You now have a lifetime of work at your fingertips. Use it."

PUAs definitely obsessed over Game and sexual dynamics. They gave us all great work and subverted the most blue pill idea of all, that everyone is unique and just being yourself gets the girls. That insight was invaluable, and spawned TRP. Plebs think that by "reading the book" so to say you MUST be obsessed with women, or have made women your mission. Binary thinking at work right there.

PUA is just a tool, and so is TRP. TRP took things a step further and questioned/broke the rules in broader society, not just intersexual dynamics. I believe that's why it has traction PUA never had - it speaks to more than just getting the girls. Swiss army knife vs. a screwdriver.

You're talking about "male dominance hierarchy" as this grand abstract universal virtuous concept. It's not.... the very fundamental reason men do dick-measuring contests to compete in the hierarchy...Being selected as a mate by a female human.

100% agree. Where Peterson's ideas fail is in the prescription - he prescribes being your best self just like TRP, but the reason for the prescription is a moral one where "doing the right thing" is the end goal. Problem is, a "real man" by his definition doesn't match with the core of TRP. Binary thinking leaves no room to disagree with your idol - it's all or nothing. No good philosophy was made in that way.

[窶転[deleted] 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Pickup artists aren't psychopaths bruh. They are socially awkward nerds who had to break socialization down into little pieces to understand it. Also, there are lots of socially awkward nerds who climb the "dominance hiearchy" and are still terrible with women, so pickup is just generally helpful for teaching naturally awkward guys how to get a girlfriend. Psychopaths don't need pickup to talk to girls, as they don't feel socially inhibited like normal people. If anything, pickup is a bunch of VERY socially inhibited guys learning to mimic psychopathy in a mild way.

Droll Judeo-Petersonian trash. All up in the feminine-primary Matrix, LARPing about how we're the "real men" since we're so moral and doing the noble, the difficult, the right thing. Refusing to cheat m'lady out of her "incredible intuitive feminine".

Our Red Pill is about stepping outside this Matrix. And it does look like cheating, from the inside. It looks like unearned and inexplicable superpowers with women. It is playful, and fun, which is why we call it Game, while you think it ought to be called "Hard Work". It enrages the blue pill "work hard" Peterson-cuck to no end that this is reality, this is all possible, while he is trying so hard to be a good boy to fit in with the system and getting nothing for his trouble.

The origin of TRPs contempt for the blue pill is not ideological or moral, it is pragmatic. The blue pill way does not work.

[窶転Odins-left-eye 21 points22 points  (1 child)

I don't give a fuck if pickup is "bad for society." It was good for me. I did it for years because it helped me fuck women, which bolstered my confidence and gave me the underpinnings necessary to drive my way up the ladder. It's not "fake it forever;" it's "fake it 'till you make it." When you're doing game correctly, you are training yourself into the person who is actually confident and cavalier and funny in a cocky manner. It's no different from a dancer starting out by reading books and taking lessons on how to step with the proper technique. Only once he masters the technique and incorporates it into his muscle memory does he truly begin to create art with everything he's learned.

[窶転Coroshi 16 points17 points  (5 children)

If an individual can cheat his way into reproducing and spreading his genes, then cheating becomes a suitable evolutionary strategy. The existence of a certain number of cheaters, or in this case pick-up artists, becomes a constituent of the Nash equilibrium. In other words - if you manage to cheat your way into passing an exam, then you deserve to pass it. There is no morality within the pick-up movement, it's just a strategy. Calling it psychopathic, however, benefits the female imperative immensely.

With that being said, I do believe Peterson to be a positive figure, but many people here are just looking for another idol to worship. Everything he says has to be critically evaluated and I don't believe people do that. They just hear him spew out a number of complex words and phrases and go "wooow".

[窶転chinagreenelvis 1 points1 points [recovered]

[窶転nietzschethegreat 1 points1 points [recovered]

Just because you're attempting to cheat doesn't mean you'll be successful. Look at the type of women these "pick-up artists" attract. None of them will be wildly successful with women and become a truly sexually successful male. Not to mention his inner sense of valuelessness which he is constantly trying to make up through the external means of female attention and validation.

[窶転Coroshi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well that depends on how you define "successful". The philosopher in your name was all about perspectivism. The whole pick-up movement exploded two decades ago, and it certainly wasn't because it didn't yield results. Sure, they probably didn't have any sense of intrinsic value, they probably weren't feeling fulfilled, heck one of the originators of the movement (Mystery) had a series of mental breakdowns. They made females the center of their lives, all of that is true. But the point is - they did fuck women, and lots of them. That is pretty much all the nature cares about. Nature is amoral and cares not about the "inner state" of individuals spreading their genes, it only ever "cares" about the selection process - process which some of them passed.

[窶転modTheRedPike 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[窶転Endorsed Contributoritiswr1tten 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Let's cut right to the chase: the dominance hierarchy you've imagined, like all hierarchies, isn't an abstract. Any hierarchy can be measured, and your argument about the subversion of an also imagined natural law doesn't establish the unit of measurement by which men become top men. Therefore, it's not logically valid to claim pick up goes against natural law because you don't define the parameters of success outside the platitude of self actualization.

The easiest way to understand the core of TRP is to ask why it makes the outsiders so upset. That is easy: "Game" wasn't invented, it was defined and stated openly. PUAs, the origin of TRP, made everyone including you mad because they developed an explicit method to attract women.

Women got mad because you're not supposed to do that, they're all special and unique and attraction isn't formulaic, it's supposed to be magical. It proved their belief system wrong, and did it overtly. You take issue for the same reason - TRP subverts what you call natural law and openly challenges Peterson, who you are defending for some weird reason. Your "just because he knows" statement is proof of this - not stating the real truth is what makes him not TRP regardless of whether he knows or believes TRP.

To weave all this together, hierarchy has to be measured, and a key way humans measure a man is sexual success (see: preselection). TRP core principles state that if you lift, develop your Game, and develop your Frame, you'll be sexually successful. TRP also states that what everyone else tells you about attracting women was wrong, and that the blue pill system exists to serve a society that uses you like a plow horse.

Peterson stating that PUA/TRP is "bad" is a moral statement taking issue with the fact that it works. Thus, many here contest that part of his philosophy. Any argument couched in "you should be thankful" is advocating from an authority position, which is a basic logical fallacy. Argue from the idea.

[窶転TRP VanguardWhisper 4 points5 points  (0 children)

When someone decides to "call me out" in a burst of drama, I like to consider the source. After all, if we are unwilling to listen to any criticism, we can never learn again... but if we stop to listen to it all, we are giving our precious time away to internet retards.

So, I asked myself, what is OP's level of understanding of what TRP is about? How deeply has he understood what TRP teaches? Is this coming from a place of understanding, or is it a reaction to a first impression?

Well, here OP is, in his own words:

Asking girls on dates feels kind of pathetic. I feel like I'm investing too much of my time to go out and treat her with coffee, or take her on a walk, or get a drink with her. I know you can build rapport and comfort in these types of venues, but it just feels so pathetic.

Seems more direct and assertive to just asking them to "chill" or "come over to my place" and fuck.

Should you treat different girls differently? Ones you'd considering LTR'ing you ask on dates, and those as just plates you ask to hook up directly?

TL;DR 窶 I feel like going on "dates" is high-investment, unnecessary, and overly needy. Is it better to just ask to chill at my place or her place, and just call them over directly?

Meh, not a bad beginner question. Unfortunately, I really don't think this level of understanding qualifies him for analysis of TRP as a whole, or what its direction should or shouldn't be.

So, let's answer the more valuable post:

/u/nietzschethegreat, the answer to your question is :

There's isn't a readily discernible difference, at the beginning, between "plate" and "considering an LTR"... remember that getting to relationship is her job, not yours. Your initial goal, therefore, isn't to treat this or that girl differently, it's to get to sex as quickly and cheaply as possible. THEN you decide if you want to promote, or not, depending on her behaviour. But every girl enters the ladder at the bottom.

So, "netflix and chill" if you can, date if she's not going to go for that, and you still feel like going for it. Those options, and a whole lot of others, and just tools in your toolbox. You select what tools to use depending on the girl and the circumstances.

[窶転TRP Legal ExpertColdIceZero 3 points4 points  (0 children)

There exists a divergence in TRP, a divergence that may warrant a discussion of branching off another sub group to allow the opportunity for certain users to focus on distinct aspects of TRP.

TRP started with a simple mission: to improve men's sexual success with women. This sub was a museum for women in the ancient sense of the word: a place for men to academically muse about their perspectives and opinions about women and to formulate theories based upon observations in the real world.

Interestingly, over a short period of time, the community at large came to the consensus that women are attracted to men who have a mission, who have a purpose in their lives. Further, it became evident that men should not make women the mission of their life; a man's mission should be something else, something more important.

And therein lies the paradox. Men are largely drawn to this community because of their lack of sexual or relational success with women; and it turns out that one of the best methods for being attractive to women is having more important shit going on in your life than being attractive for the sake of being attractive.

So if the original purpose of TRP was to increase a man's sexual success with a woman but, in the process of discovering one's own self actualization, you stop focusing on increasing your attractiveness to women and start focusing on other goals, then what is TRP?

In my opinion, TRP helped many of us to break free of our blue pill, a-woman-will-solve-all-of-my-problems mindset. And in the process, many of us discovered that pursuing women shouldn't be the main aspect of our lives.

And yet many aspects of TRP are very closely tied to the original goals of the PUA community: finding better strategies to improve your ability to get your dick wet.

So what is TRP? Are we a community aimed toward slaying more and better pussy? Are we a community of once savages working toward greater personal enlightenment?

It seems like those goals are almost mutually exclusive in pursuit and passion.

I don't blame TRP users who are here for pussy gathering strategies. And I don't see it as derogatory to relate them to PUA, because both of their end goals are the same.

Yet at the same time, there are still other aspects of the TRP community focused on different goals. Those goals are not the same goals as the PUA community. So I believe there may be a bit of an identity issue here, with large segments of TRP claiming what TrueTRPTM really is.

I understand and appreciate the mods intolerance for concern trolling. Sometimes it's a fine line.

I think learning game does help with abundance and "oh wow. I actually CAN get laid", which is useful especially if one has spent a lifetime alone and 'incel'. But though it does educate us on an instinctual level what behaviors women respond to, it is only a surface patch if it isn't paired with true outcome independence and a strong sense of self.

Not being able to discuss morality and how it relates to being a worthwhile man stifles the discussion. Yet you can talk about selfish manipulation and how great it is, as if that wasn't any kind of reflection of morals.

Masculinity is direct.

[窶転Modredpillschool 4 points5 points  (4 children)

In order to discuss morality, you must first agree whose morality we're dealing with.

TRP is a diverse crowd. You'd never get a consensus.

And if that didn't make it pointless enough, remember that "morality" is the rule book that was used to control our blue pill selves in the first place.

So I'd be wary even making an appeal to morality.

[窶転DancesWithPugs 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I get what you're saying.

Well RP advocates an amoral sexual strategy as your best long term chance at happiness. That is a value system. Saying it can't be criticized reminds me of other ideologies I gave up on.

Morality can be misused to control and manipulate. The same is true of most human activity.

But I'm not saying that. You're more than welcome to criticize goals. In fact that's one of the reasons we have a MGTOW flair.

Recommending different strategies to realize different goals is perfectly on topic. Making an appeal to a larger morality or authority without reason is where it crosses the line.

For instance, I have no problem with religious people or atheists. But don't tell me not to spin plates because it's immoral. You know?

I'ts been explained over and over by patient individuals yet you're more intent on being triggered than understanding what is being conveyed.

he'd know that pick-up artistry doesn't actually fall in line, at all, with the "Red Pill.窶

TRP has only ever recognized the effectiveness of the techniques but never claimed to endorse PUA as goal, it's simply critiquing JP's statements on them.

Pick-up is inherently for low-status men, against that which embraces the flourishing of the masculine, and counter-productive for those who are attempting to truly ascend the male dominance hierarchy.

PUA has never claimed to ascend an individual to the top of the male dominance hierarchy, it has only claimed to provide tools to help game a woman. I don't see how mastering these tools is counter productive for those attempting to ascend the male dominance hierarchy.

A real man engages his true mission up the male dominance hierarchy and focuses solely on himself and actualizing his plurapotentiality, narrowing a multitude of possibilities into one single frame of existence as he becomes who he truly is.

What's a REAL man? By who's standard? Who's definition?

Who he truly is? A man's existance is not stagnant. He can manipulate and change who he is to whatever he wants.

You're shying away from becoming who you can be, and attempting to circumvent the hierarchy by manipulating the highly-perceptive feminine into thinking that you are high status, when you're not.

PUA are not circumventing the the heirarchy. They're simply using tools to benefit themselves. It's a short term strategy. Not an attempt to rise to the top of the heirarchy.

And that never plays out well窶杷or the male. No male will ever be truly sexually successful through a facade of status, memorized routines and lines, and a weak masculine foundation.

Never plays out well for the male? I think getting laid is playing out well for the male.

Essentially, you're cheating nature. There are no shortcuts to the top.

Who made you the nature police? You're saying there's a way things should be done and if you don't do it that way you're a cheat? There's no such thing as cheating nature. There's only understanding nature and manipulating it to work for you. I fail to see how obtaining tools to better your life is a bad thing. Just because it doesn't fall inline with your programmed standard?

we get men who are inherently low status, unattractive, and have no real value fucking women whoツthinkツthey are high-status, attractive, and capable of climbing the dominance hierarchy.

If a man presents the factors that women find attractive and THEY decide to fuck him how is that not real? He's presenting the tools that she finds attractive. Just the same as if you present yourself as a muscular man it increases you chances of getting laid. Perhaps you should put the burden on the poor little helpless female on vetting the people she spreads her legs for a little better.

PUA whole approach is exactly that picking up and fucking woman. A woman who doesn't fuck guys she just met will not fall for it. By your logic she's probably a low status female too then if she could just get picked up in a bar, so they deserve each other.

窶弃ick-up窶 is for low-status men.

I think all men use pick up in some form or another.

so they have to resort to displaying all the behaviors that a high status man naturally, outwardly manifests without being the high status man themselves.

Yes, they use the tools at their disposal to help get themselves laid, such terrible people.

Oh but if the alpha uses the tools at his disposal to get laid thats fine right? Only certain people are allowed to use the tools, and only Jordan Peterson can say who.

The "Red Pill" isn't about low status men trying to "pick up" women or manipulating them subconsciously (from both frames of reference, that is) into liking them. It's about becoming a truly high status man who lives for his own values and needs, naturally attracting women.

Precisely why the Red Pill doesn't prescribe PUA as a long term solution.

Jordan Peterson's statements doesn't mean you should throw out the baby with the bathwater.

No one is criticizing the person, only some of his ideas. And encouraged you to do the same.

He's studied, endlessly, the horrors Western civilization

So we should praise him for speaking out against Western civilization?

best-selling non-fiction book in the Western world at the moment

But we should also praise him because Western Civilization endorses him? Do you not see the paradox here?

Just because he knows certain things doesn't mean he has to speak about them in public. His "credibility" would be shot off the moment he mentions any real truths to society.

So he speaks out for men against common public opinion. But won't speak out truths that he secretly knows because of fear o public opinion? Are you listening to yourself?

You don't think Peterson knows exactly what women are attracted to?

Ya ok with his n-count of one. Im sure he's very experienced in this field.

"Pickup" insinuates the use of falsehood to pretend at high status/value. Its context.

There's nothing inherently wrong about picking up a girl while being who you are. It's the use of lies to pretend at being who you arent - using "pickup" lines/strategies to play at status you dont have - where it gets creepy.

[窶転ssj4kevin 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I don't know why people are having a hard time understanding that TRP and JP are talking about different things. As far as I'm concerned TRP is and has always been about sexual strategy and ONLY about sexual strategy. Whatever discussion of 'self-improvement' has been as a step toward the goal of improved sexual outcome.

JP by and large discusses how he believes people ought to conduct themselves to live in a prosperous society. A lot of that message focuses on the individual and how that individual should seek to improve themselves, but since the ultimate goal is a prosperous society that individual is going to have to conduct themselves according to principles handed to them.

Somewhere along the line of TRP history the dominant view of what TRP is has switched from sexual strategy to this weird notion of 'self-improvement'. In a large percentage of threads on the sub I see people talk about how TRP is 'really, when it comes down it about becoming the best person you can' and I just think to myself 'when the hell did it become that?'. The only view under which TRP is about self-improvement is if your metric for self-improvement is sexual success and ONLY sexual success.

The concept of 'self-improvement' is going to have an ethical component to it no matter what. TRP is, as far as I am aware, entirely amoral so how could it even be about self-improvement? Even when TRP uses ethical language I've always interpreted that as a rhetorical tool as opposed to believing that it is endorsing any particular ethical perspective.

Anyway, since TRP and JP are not talking about the same things then obviously there are going to be major disagreements. TRP is amoral, JP is almost entirely morally normative. From my perspective this crazy feud over the last couple days is the result of a large portion of people on the sub believing mistakenly that TRP is about 'self-improvement' (whatever the hell that means). It's not. That's a lot closer to what JP talks about. So when someone comes out and disagrees with JP using colourful language a large number of readers take offense because they never understood this sub to begin with.

I agree that rehearsal of pick up methods and obsessively focusing on gaming girls implicates a lack of integrity and a weakness of character.

However, considering this sub has a lot of members, it is only realistic that the sub is turning out the way it is.

It's probably not going to get better so I think you are better off to just let go and move on.

Also why the need to defend Jordan Peterson?

[窶転Rian_Stone 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Why does it have to be obsessive? An example, I learned M3 because dating was a slog, and it allowed me to gamify the experience, made it fun again. I had a 180 day sailing schedule, and no time to obsess about anything. I peacocked, but never with a hat.

So your post reads to me like a pejorative stereotype, based on never actually reading on pickup. Considering the amount of guys on here to min/max their avatars on [current video game here] I find these conversations are dancing around their actual issues, and using the ones you describe as a surrogate.

we always have two reasons for shit, the one we say, and the one we dont

Because one of our married users broke down the mystery method, and it reads nothing like your blathering

[窶転Phixioner 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I didn't intend to come across as pejorative of people choosing to devote their time to game girls, that is fine with me, and I am also 'guilty' in doing so myself.

What I meant by it signifying a lack of integrity and weakness of character is that gaming girls is reward seeking, also in many, if not most cases some type of over-compensation from a general feeling of inadequacy, in my opinion it is simply an escape from reality, that's all.

Honestly I don't know why I set myself up for a debate on this.

[窶転Rian_Stone 2 points3 points  (2 children)

It's fun.

So how exactly does your integrity take a hit. To whom?

How would you counter that guys covering up inadequacy by... being adequate is not a bad thing?

[窶転Phixioner 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It's not black and white. There are layers to inadequacy, an internalized sense of inadequacy is sub conscious. If you understand how repressed emotions work you will understand why using something outside yourself to compensate for a negative internalized emotion is fueling and reinforcing the sense of inadequacy that you are trying to escape in the first place.

[窶転Rian_Stone 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah. And when that external compensation makes you angry, it motivates you to remove the source of the anger.

External motivation isn't better than discipline, but it's a great kick start to the process. What do you think Esthar Villas book and the invol incel post are the first two links on the sidebar for?

if you get what you want out of life, you are doing it right, if you aren't you're doing it wrong, operating on this simple terms how can PUA be for a weak man.

Your definition of weak is virtue signalling , if you truly understand weak or beta you wouldn't use that. No one wants to be weak or beta, it's considered a bad state.

> It's about becoming a truly high status man who lives for his own values and needs, naturally attracting women.

All ways are natural, everything you do is natural, it you did something unnatural as a human you would achieve special snow flake status what you want is trad con way of approaching women.

A simple way of looking at it is, "I want to learn social skills", the response of the red pill community is good for you, you're becoming high value, a real authentic person , however if you say, "I Want to learn social skills specifically to sleep with women", you will get blasted and told to focus on you.

I honestly don't know why the double standard, it's like some fake form of purity must go into the game, attracting women must be done indirectly, almost as if on accident as a result of some high valued life.

PUA at it's core teaches you aren't a special snow flake, but neither is anyone else, your version of TRP teaches, you can become a special snow flake(High value) and everyone will like you, honestly this version of the red pill is judgmental, egoistical and walking around thinking you are better.

Love is just a chemical reaction, The art in Pick up comes from you are making people feel real authentic emotions , like a musician or a painter

> And that never plays out well窶杷or the male.

This is like saying weed is the gateway drug and makes you lazy, in that there is some truth to what you say, but you are as real as your intent, it plays out as well as I want it to. All I'm saying is I have to learn the hard way, not that I was being fake, just that I still have growing to do specifically with women and learning.

After a while, I get used to it, it becomes second nature, it's like doing a back flip, Experience is the best teacher, my relationships with women expanded my mind to the point where I'm being myself because I can't not do that.

[窶転RedPlanetMan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ideological thinking is like a curse, bounding people and blinding them to the objective world and their subjective perceptions of it, and no one is really free of that mental conditioning. And with that said, PUArtistry is just one component in a much larger puzzle. To believe that any one thing, if sufficiently mastered, can get you laid with any girl is psychopathic. An interrogator that primarily, & only, relies on violence is a psychopath. Peterson is getting at the fact that a RP man is a well-rounded person, not someone whose built an identity on some manipulative tactic as a means of finding purpose/meaning.

As to the problem with Peterson, and not his ideas, the media has made him the foreperson of an alternate view/paradigm of the world, one which is very distinct perceptually from the currently propagated one, and because the current paradigm is always seen as the default (e.g., society is always at its most modern progressional possibility but everyone else, in the past especially, were cavemen), he is hated for being a rabble-rouser, easily crucified in a different age.

I think that those who don't try to understand his ideas, as opposed to their view of the person, it's like the female-hamster, doing everything it can to not see its true, self-deluding nature, IMO.

Peterson窶冱 the man giving a sermon out on the mountain to thousands of eager listeners, and those who criticize him are a bunch of insignificant sheep roaming out among the fields below. If you have a real contention, stop complaining and have some respect for yourself.

So you think criticizing someone's ideas makes you a sheep? I would argue that blindly following the JP ideas makes you a sheep, not the other way around. This sounds like an angry rant of someone who desperately needs to cling to the ideas of a man they follow without question.

You don't think Peterson knows exactly what women are attracted to? You don't think he knows exactly how bitter and resentful men are? You don't think he knows exactly how society is structured

You say he knows all these things yet he is just keeping these ideas to himself while simultaneously is on the side of men. This is inherently contradictory. How exactly is Jordan Peterson on the side of young men when he advocates marriage and wants young men to be BENEFACTORS of society? Society fucks me in the ass and I am supposed to contribute back to it? Marriage is dead. This is because it was a shit idea that DIDN'T WORK. Men wanting to fuck women isn't psychopathic, it is deeply rooted in our psyche.

You claim to be an advocate of the ideas of Nietzsche yet you also claim that Pickup and game are immoral. If you are claiming to be an advocate for the ideas of Nietzsche while you are forcing your morals onto others then you must not have any comprehension of the ideas that Nietzsche put forth. Nietzche It is extremely clear that you are confused about your inner values and cling to Jordan Peterson as your alpha and leader because you yourself cannot choose your own values. Yes, Jordan Peterson advocates some good ideas and helps young men. However, he lacks a true understanding of sexual strategy, which is the real main purpose of this sub.

DIRECTLY FROM BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL, FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE," The lofty independent spirituality, the will to stand alone, and even the cogent reason, are felt to be dangers, everything that elevates the individual above the herd, and is a source of fear to the neighbor, is henceforth called EVIL;" Sound familiar? Such as claiming pick-up and game to be immoral. Why should we conform to your views on the world and your definition of what a "real man" is?

Here is an amoral fact. Pick-up artistry is an amoral tool for sexual strategy. Criticizing PUA is serving the female imperative which has been clearly stated here yet you fail to comprehend that simple idea. Jordan Peterson does not serve the male imperative by claiming that PUA is sociopathic and he is not your friend.

Walk me through whats at the top of the dominance hierarchy?

Those who are the top of the male dominance hierarchy have acquired the necessary competence that allows them to ascend the greatest subset of all dominance hierarchies. In other words, those that are most likely to become evolutionarily successful in one subset of human existence. This could be in social dominance/social proof which proves popularity and value, or economic dominance based on intellect and competence, along with many more. Any dominance hierarchy which proves one's true status and competence over another man in maintaining survival and the ability to propagate an iterative game far into the future selects for the man with the most reproductive potential.

because this chomskybot bullshit is unintelligible.

It actually makes perfect sense.

He is applying the subtle logics he's learned to everything that crosses his path, no matter how little he knows about it, all with the intention to open doors. In the end he is no less than babbling about things he knows nothing about. All because he got yet another invite to talk.

Look. they way i see it is red pill is 95% of the pie and game is the extra 5% you need. I mean " status, Money and looks" can only get you so far. game is that cherry on top that can push you over the edge from banging, to NOT banging. if you are into red pill YOU SHOULD KNOW AND BE AWARE OF GAME. since coming to the red pill I don't go to the " pick up" subreddit at all.

but I know it's there and I know what it's about and how to use it. if you don't think anyone doing pick up doesn't self-actualize and become a better person then you are wrong. they are ALL some " fedora-wearing losers" some of them are cool guys.

I like to read a lot and I enjoy learning all the time, this is how I originally arrived at TRP subreddit. Ever since then I have found some great info on developing yourself as that was what I originally came for. Along the way I have also picked other info such as sexual game, frame, etc. which has been helpful to myself.

I also like a lot of what Jordan Peterson says and write, because its similar to the theory of TRP about being a better yourself and striving to raise your SVM, while its adequately researched and written.

I don't agree with everything that Jordan Peterson says, but neither do I agree with every single post here in TRP. In fact, the majority of the posts in TRP is of extremely low quality reminiscent of facebook posts. Most of the time simply anecdotes or experiences with no quality source backing them up or spitting what other more invested writers have said already in a more eloquent manner.

Incidentally, it is also this kind of low quality posters that bring down this subreddit, every time something is different from their frame of reference they either dismiss it, deny it or simply insult it. I'm aware they are quality posters willing to debate and argument different ideas, but the majority of them are not.

WWIII has broken out in this sub in thr last few weeks and perhaps it's time for instant nukes on posts that explicility or implicitly refer to JP for 1-2 weeks

If someone plays D&D or WoW day in and out but maintains a modicum of decent appearance and then once a week on Saturday afternoons patrols his local mall 'tricking' girls then yes that is an example of pick up/game/RSDs inherent failings and short comings (mind you this is an extreme example which I doubt actually occurs due to this person's stagnant brain and oversaturated dopamine receptors who would do a shit job at socialising as the reward from video games would be higher) anyway

Anecdotal, however

I was in shape, dressed well, was well spoken and very talkative, would go out, socially adjusted and normal, in my university program I'll have random 1st and 2nd and 3rd years stop me on a Saturday night and introduce themselves to me asking "hey aren't you 613wethegreatest?" While I had no idea who tf these kids were or how they knew me. People would tell me I was popular and well known but to me it never seemed like it internally. I've worked 3 relatively prestigious/numerous internships and have travelled the world and have insight on many subjects and life experiences.

People tell me I'm the glue of social circles and bring people together. Sure I was no business owner, University Athlete, or Faculty Club President/Leader, but I sure as fuck wasn't low value and had a higher than average social value. Yet I didn't lose my virginity until 19 when finally some girl cold approached me at a networking event and did all the dirty work for me.

I remained laidless for 6 months after that until another girl revealed her attraction to me and we smashed. Then laidless for another half year until once again a friend informed me her friend was into me during a night out and my inebriated self handled the rest.

I get stopped in the middle of concerts by guys and girls alike to tell me "damn, you hit the gym or what" get complimented on my sociability and people skills almost every day and hear relatively often that some girl found me super hot.

HOWEVER, I ALSO GET TOLD I LOOK INTIMIDATING AND AGGRESSIVE AS FUCK, something that I to this day do not see when I look in the mirror or through my introspection

As a result of this if it weren't for Pickup and RSD I'd still be the shy kid I was around girls and would be still getting laid 1-2x a year by sheer dumb luck and leaving my sexual life I'm the hands of direct girls who's ASD are non existent, effectively limiting my pool of sexual partners down to 1:50 and having zero control in it. I'm top 10-20% by looks easy and in my entire life I'd had only 3 girls be extremely sexually direct and explicit with me and that's because alcohol was involved on one level or another. Many more who I realise were flirting or hinting at it but if not for game/pickup/RSDs teachings of 'IOIs' I'd have no idea in retrospect.

If pickup and game and RSD becomes your life you're a tool bag, but use it as a tool for where you might be lacking and watch how much it'll change things for you.

Everyone needs to fuck right off with this bipolar black and white thinking towards RSD, towards Jordan Peterson, towards anything.

The entire fucking point is to think for yourself and find the middle ground in any subject. There's no such thing as right or wrong and the fact that people subscribed to TRP a subreddit with a demographic primarily over 21 who still think in a black and white manner as if they were children is actually pathetic.

Get a grip on the fact that NOTHING in this life is black or white, it never has been and never will be, you live in endless shades of grey and it's up to you to figure out which shade for each situation

You give the impression that you didn't actually listen to anything he said, just read what others have said about it. If that is the case, you might want to check him out a bit. He is good with words, but IMO he gives out a bit more than his carefully chosen words.

https://youtu.be/RxZOkrgid40

[窶転clearly-red 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In that video, Peterson is saying women choose males from top from DH(dominance hierarchy). So I should be waiting for females to select me. What I am supposed to do in meantime when I am not on top? Sound much like 'Soulmate Myth', somewhere there is the ONE, who will come in my life and we will make babies and live happily ever after.

How does broke artist living in van or shitty apartment get to fuck chicks? How does plumber fucks the wife when husband is off to work? How does random guy pick up executive's wife from bar or club? How these men are selected by females to have sex with, when they are not the top of DH?

DH only matter to BB. You can be top for your DH like Elon Musk and still be discarded later by very female that "selected" him.

Due to nature of female hypergamy. AF operates out of DH. AF gets to fuck lots of women and spin plates. It's his choice who he want to fuck out options he have created for himself or to settle down later to have kids.

Goal of Red Pill is to become Alpha not High Value Beta male.

Yes, you will still have to work to make money and participate in social game because you are social animal. That means participating in a Dominance Hierarchy. But you doing that for you survival's sake, not for a female to choose you one day.

Red pill is rejection of established system that includes dominance hierarchy(DH).

He speaks a lot of truth, but he's contantly telling people what he thinks they ought to do with his information instead of laying out facts and allowing people to do what they want. Listen to him and Joe Rogan talk about hypergamy - he hates being pushed on it. It's either weakness in the media spotlight or blue pill ideology coming through, none of which I respect.

'Be a strong man so you can get married, raise a family etc'. is blue pill. 'Be a strong man so you can live life on your own terms and fuck anyone else' is, imo, red pill and something you'll never hear JP preach.

Pick-up artistry doesn't actually fall in line, at all, with the "Red Pill.窶

Yes it does, it's simply one tool in the toolbox. It's not everything, but it's not valueless. You seem to be against pick-up because you view it as "manipulation". If your pick-up game involves lying and deception, I'd agree. But it's not all just lying to get laid. For example, if you have game plan on what to talk about on date, that doesn't mean your lying about what you're talking about.

I disagree with Peterson being pro-corporal punishment. A weak man uses violence as a form of discipline. There are far better ways to teach lessons than using your hand to swat a small human. This is a huge flaw in Peterson's philosophy and why I can't get behind what he says overall.

[窶転Chitlinsandgravy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I posted a comment along these lines in another thread. It's definitely more appropriate here:

Don't put the Peterson, or anyone on a pedestal. You think he needs some random ass dude fighting battles he's most likely not interested for him in his name?

Pickup is the test to see if you've actually improved as a man and become sex worthy. It is a pillar of TRP and much of the manipation tactics taught in TRP are oldschool dark-game techniques that exploit female psychology.

Let's not bash chumps for wanting to change their lives and get laid, please. We all started somewhere and this "holier than thou" attitude aint shit.

Without cold approach, you've done nothing but engage in mental masturbation. There is nothing quite like ego destruction to burn away your impurities.

[窶転Shaman6624 0 points1 point  (0 children)

JP sees sex as something carrying so much weight it shouldn't be done lightly. He's against one night stands, and he is probably against most of what RP stands for. I also believe a big part of the sidebar won't bring you a happy and fullfilling life. But there is a lot to be learned from this place also. And both sides has their core of truth.

Remember that human experience isn't as simple as the causal events propogating said experience. The human experience is an emergent property of lot's of things that we can analyse and where cause and effect are easy to distinguish. But the human experience itsself doesn't follow those rules. It can hold two totally conflicting ideas with them both being subjectively true. (think AF/BB). My point is that trp is not descriptive of the entire reality of being human. It's just a subculture geared towards giving men a foothold in the sexual marketplace. Our business isn't truth or making us 'true men' even though people like OP keep glossing the truth of this place over with terms like that. No the purpose of this place is to give men a chance to fullfill their sexual desires by giving them strategies without regard for morality. It's not noble. Everything goes and the 'Truth' in RP context is just a contextual truth which will get you laid and which works in the sexual marketplace: women don't grow up after their 18th year, don't trust women they are all the same. It's all beliefs that, when adapted, will take you to a certain brand of sexual fullfillment. Nothing wrong with that that's just what we're doing here so if you want to philosophize about truths that have other contexts just leave.

[窶転mushroom_overlord 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Jordan Peterson has important things to say. Some of those things, even the most blackpilled user should consider.

JP is a very intelligent and skilled psychologist who identifies how important it is that people work toward a valued goal, and how even in the most dire situations, there is a duality of sorts; there is always something you could do to make it worse (that you shouldn't do) and something you could do to make it better (that you should do). However, one of his pitfalls is that he has to mix in religious mystical quackery, where the good thing has to be "heaven" and the bad thing has to be "hell."

The Jungian mysticism doesn't help either, or his refusal to truly admit what his beliefs are about god.

Jordan Peterson is just a man. A smart man, sure. But there are smart people on every side, so pretending no one is on his level is not going to help.

All you do in your post is parrot what JP says about dominance hierarchies. You say you'll "explain" why JP is right and we are all fuckheads driving the world to mass extinction, but you just fucking don't.

Formulating Jordan's talking points in your own words like a high school paper does nothing to "explain" the problems with pickup (with which there are problems, but not the ones you point out).

You say he should be scrutinized, but instead of pointing out where we are wrong you in fact mischaracterize critics of JP by not saying anything of substance and instead saying the opposition is just misrepresenting him, while you of course have to misrepresent them instead of make a decent point.

The thing I like about him the most is that he is adamantly opposed to feminism and cultural marxism. He lambastes the universities for becoming cesspools of cultural marxism, which is why he is so vilified in so many articles.

[窶転nietzschethegreat 1 points1 points [recovered]

I don't have time to debate you endlessly on this, but in summary, religion is an encompassing term which is defined in many vague ways. It can be adherence to a strict ideology, belief in a transcendent deity, belief in an afterlife, or simply the belief in something greater.

Simply because God might not be real, and the Bible, "miracles," and "magic" aren't pragmatically, objectively real doesn't discount their value to humans.

These archetypal manifestations are simply fractalized offshoots of our own inherent value hierarchies and our individual drives towards self-actualization. The interaction between Chaos and Order where the boundary of potential meets our ability to actualize our own.

Simply because religion has its faults (yes, I admit that) doesn't mean that the foundational, core realities which comprise our Being don't have any significance. In fact, they do. I suggest you read Nietzsche's On the Genealogy of Morality.

"Mate guarding" is the word you've invented to try to reconcile the overpowering shame and anger you feel when you contemplate another man having your woman.

This one flaw, when embraced, reduces TRP to a sad variant of feminism, even lower than MGTOW.

"Your wife is your property" is natural law. And God's existence can be seen with certainty in nature. Your atheism and your refusal to demand to keep your woman are of one kind: shouting down your own intuition of something better, loudly declaring satisfaction with a pile of shit. The self-hatred of "we're apes" might feel good but it's the same kind of pleasure as cutting yourself. The magic and miracles are all real. Modern man disproved them in exactly the same way they proved that men and women are equal.

Sure, do you realize JP is on record saying that the ancient civilizations (like the ancient Chinese, Aborigines, etc.) intuitively knew the molecular double helix structure of DNA?

He's a religious kook dude. He needs a redpill to understand that all religious belief is man made and has no intrinsic truth or value.

The roots of TRP is based on natural phenomena like evolution and natural selection. The redpill is that all people are attracted to behavior traits and physical attributes that are shaped by hundreds of thousands of years of natural selection, irrespective of what people whine about.

The redpill JP needs to learn is that Christian conservatism is not the natural order and is merely invented by men to give them a illusion of meaning and purpose, and make them feel better about the fear of death. That misplaced morality motivates his silly comments about pickup/women etc, largely because of his religious beliefs.

[窶転nietzschethegreat 1 points1 points [recovered]

I can't reply to all these straw-man arguments, but in summary, religion has a basis in that which is archetypally Masculine. The controlling Father, which demands order.

Now, just because you may project that onto society doesn't mean it has to be. Society in the 20th century became increasingly removed from the masculine and into the feminine, both in actuality in society and archetypally.

Everything is man-made. Reality is man-made. To discard religion, which carried, changed, and fundamentally influenced civilization in every aspect of reality for centuries, as something with "no intrinsic truth or value," is a serious mistake.

[窶転throwaway1643 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Reality isn't man made. The universe functions according to an objective set of rules and principles, independent of men or whatever you feel. This is a classic example of putting "feels before reals".

JP is a sophisticated nutjob. Do you really think, like JP says, ancient civilizations knew about the molecular structure of DNA? The man is a charlatan and will say whatever blue pill nonsense to naive and willing young men in search of rules to guide their lives, simply to sell his books and make money.

No matter how much JP conflates moral truths with reality, the universe doesn't function that way. There's an excellent conversation with Sam Harris and JP that shows the latter's ignorance.

The traits we are attracted to is shaped by this independent set of objective rules (like evolution and natural selection). It has nothing to do with morality or how people ought to behave. This is textbook RP 101.

Christianity and every other religion is not. It doesn't have a shred of evidence to support it's claims. It's made up beliefs to protect the fragile ego of believers looking for meaning in an indifferent world (kinda ironic given your username. Have you even read his works?). As I said, JP uses it as a crutch to protect his insecurities so in this regard he's pretty much textbook BP.

Someday, when you start thinking for yourself, you'll realize religion is the ultimate blue pill.

[窶転nietzschethegreat 1 points1 points [recovered]

I love the patronizing attitude.

When I say reality is man-made, I am noting that without the fundamental biological and archetypal substrates that comprise our consciousness cannot be detached from the experience of reality itself. Which is reality.

And again, you're missing the point. The point is not whether "Christianity is true" or their "claims are true," (in fact, I don't believe they are).

One-off claims such as "religion is the ultimate blue pill" is such ridiculously naive nonsense.

[窶転throwaway1643 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Reality is not the experience of anything and is most certainly not man-made, that's just semantic nonsense dude.

Things like the speed of light, the gravitational constant, etc. exist irrespective of what you experience, or even if whether humans are around to experience it. The earth existed for 6 billion years, long before humans were present, and will continue to exist long after our species goes extinct. There's an independent reality out there, subject to universal physical laws, no matter what you subjectively feel or experience.

Those are fundamental laws of nature.

You are playing word games (the same semantic bullshit JP pulls) saying our experience and observations make these things real. As Sam Harris pointed out, they are not. It's unsuprising and unfortunate you then make the leap from there to prescribing moral truths as real.

It's all just blue pill nonsense. I maintain JP is like a cult like leader and a religious kook. Such a pity that so many young men searching for meaning and rules are falling for his bullshit.

At least I don't say things like "god did it", or "let's sacrifice this goat while we burn this witch", or "if I fuck 20 virgins I'll get rid of this AIDS". Because I'm not religious.

My Jordan Peterson drinking game:

take a shot anytime he mentions the number of deaths under Stalin

Take a shot anytime he mentions the Gulag or Nazi Germany

Take a shot anytime he plugs one of his books

Take a shot anytime his voice cracks

take a shot anytime he says 窶彙loody窶

Peterson isn't even worth defending, his conclusions are skewed because he has rejected possibilities at face value.

Agree. I can never respect someone who doesn窶冲 take the time to fully understand something before rejecting it.

Is this not what redpillschool was advocating? Critical thinking?

[窶転Endorsed ContributorJamesSkepp 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Yes, he was. The problem is, the OP is basically JBP copy/paste.

I'm openly willing to debate and discuss ideas with everyone. Free, open, civil discourse. You're welcome to voice your complaints.

There's a been a whole charade of backlash and relentless vitriol against Jordan Peterson by a ton of members on this sub recently.

^ OPs idea of critical thinking.

Yeah, so I just stopped reading most posts here. These "field report" and "theory" posts are generally just guys trying to fuck the most women.

Being a man, being red pill... it's about more than sex. In fact, casual sex can get you into more bad situations than any one woman can.

Making goals, self-improvement, planning for a future, inproving your financial health, and providing for your family are all admirable traits that this sub rarely discusses at length. I see about 20 "how to fuck girls" posts for every 1 legitimate, inspiring, or mens-rights related post on here.
