“The mental must always stay calm. You must let nothing move you, be it good or bad. For when the mental cannot be moved, there is no longer good or bad… there just is. When there just is, you have the power to form and shape.” -Jeru
Life is amoral. It is neutral. We choose to view things as good or bad. Things simply exist and we project our beliefs onto the world around us. We buy into our own bullshit/illusion. People confuse their interpretation of reality with reality itself. Through eliminating this tendency, we are able to see the world for what it actually is within the limits of our physical perception. Mental clutter is extraneous and makes the world more complicated.
Emotions cloud judgment. Logic wins out over emotions when it comes to making rational decisions. Societal morals are merely a social construction designed to keep you in line. Some moral codes will shame you for normal behavior. When you make decisions purely based on what feels good/feels bad (cough * women * cough), you are at the whim of people who can manipulate emotions. Girls are not shamed for indulging in their mating strategy, why should you be? Oh yeah… western societies are fem-centric. Acknowledge your self-interest. Selfish behavior only becomes problematic when you disregard other people entirely and start living like a parasite. You can be rationally selfish yet positive.
I admit that I initially struggled reconciling the Machiavellian approach to life with being a positive person. As much as I wanted to embrace it, my social conditioning held me back. Now I see the light among the dark triad. There is nothing dark about “manipulation”. There is nothing wrong with pursuing self-interest. It is objectively neutral, subjectively beneficial. In any given interaction, one person is more active while the other person is more reactive. Accepting this will not only benefit you but it is ultimately the right thing to do. If you don’t have your own back at all times, who does? It’s much better having yourself to fall back on than nobody. You don’t need to be a total dick about it either, just hold firm boundaries and don’t take shit. Knowing about the nature of power is enough. How you use that knowledge is up to you. At the very least, you won’t buy into the manipulations of others. No one has the right to shame you into doing their bidding. You are a busy man of value. There are places to be, money to be made, and other women to lay.
It is funny how the term misogynist has been expanded to such a degree that it includes those who disprove of fem-centric thought. I do not hate women. I do not hate sluts. I will gladly hit them with some dick, but they won’t get any commitment from me. That’s the best part about digesting the red pill. It fills you with self-respect. It teaches you that a male emotional slut is equivalent to a female sexual slut. Not every girl is worthy of your commitment. Don’t give yourself up so freely.
I love women. I love what they offer me. Enjoy them for what they are, not for what you want them to be. As Krauser says, be a cheerful “misogynist”.
