1. You keep putting off whatever it is you are putting off, you’ll never get around to it. You are creating a habit by doing this, and it’s not a good one. You’ll run out of time sooner than you think. Just do it, stop fucking around.

2. You can be right or you can be happy. Most of the time you can’t have both. Choose wisely.

3. Whatever it is you want out of life, you’re going to have to work for it. You’re going to have to earn it. No two ways about it.

4. It will take longer than you think it will. Always. Every time. Get used to that. It is what it is.

5. There are 3 types of people in the world: Those who make things happen, those who watch what happened, and those who wondered what happened. Which one are you?

On Tribes

Lately I’ve been giving this a lot of thought. With the attacks on men and masculinity, with the invasion of the Feminine Imperative into everything Man, where is a Man supposed to go?

We’ve got the ‘Sphere for advice and Men are coming together around the world, at least digitally, and “creating our own space,” so to speak.

But what about in “the real world?” I know for me at least, finding like minded men, men who are good at being men, men who would have my back in a crisis, men who can actually “get shit done,” men who honor their word, men who are men and are not soy, are few and far between.

If I want to physically meet up with like minded Men, I will have to do a road trip at a minimum. More likely, I’ll have to hop on an airplane to go visit them. I don’t have a problem with that. With modern transportation, it’s totally an option. It’s totally doable. But what about if or when “shit hits the fan?” Hopping on an airplane most likely won’t be an option then. Same goes for the road trip.

It’s unfortunate that most men around me, most men that live within a certain proximity, like walking distance of a couple miles or so, are still plugged into the matrix. They are still eating garbage, talking garbage, and pandering to garbage.

I tweeted about this a few weeks ago when I talked about the Myth of the Lone Wolf:

It’s unfortunate that most men see the Myth of the Lone Wolf as the ideal. In the long run, it’s not. If we as Men are to truly effect change, we need to be in actual proximity of one another. Jack Donovan is doing exactly that. He’s got his Gang. He’s got his actual living, breathing, in the flesh Tribe.

We’ve got our digital Tribe with the ‘Sphere, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Gab, websites and blogs, but ultimately, is it enough? Is it truly enough when an actual honest to god crisis happens? Is it enough when shit hits the fan? Are “thoughts and prayers” online going to actually be enough when something goes down?

I don’t think so.

Unfortunately in our day and age, for the majority at least, you as a Man will have to be the Lone Wolf. All of the guys who are still plugged in won’t be able to help you. They’ll be too soft, too weak, and looking for someone else to save them.

5 Unpleasant Truths…For Men – 7

  1. You will be demonized, mocked, ridiculed, made fun of, and told you are broken and defective for your masculinity and for wanting to be masculine. Basically, it will seem and feel like the entire world is against you. Know this right now: You are not broken. You are not defective.
  2. You will be blamed for all the bullshit that women do and get themselves into. They avoid responsibility and accountability like the plague. If you have a dick, it’s automatically your fault. Don’t argue with them, don’t try to rationalize with them, and for god’s sake, don’t ever try to beg, plead, or negotiate with them.
  3. The burden of performance is on you. Women are born, Men are Made. Don’t fight it. Don’t try and deny it. Accept it and become better. Learn new skills. Take up new hobbies. Become more interesting. Become better.
  4. A lot of it, you’ll have to go it alone. The ‘Sphere is great for meeting like minds, it’s great for getting information you never had, it’s a good start. You’ll have to do the work. It’s on you and you alone to execute.
  5. Don’t expect any real thanks or credit from women for what you do and have done. Those things you do and have done? They are expected. They are just supposed to happen. It’s just what you do. Do it because you can, do it because you enjoy it, do it because you want to.
