Knowledge is Power.
If we accept this maxim as true, then it stands to reason that some types of knowledge are of more value than others, and consequently lead to greater power. Therefore…
…Red Pill Knowledge is Extraordinary Power.
What do I mean by this? Well, first a clarification.
I view this blog as a Red Pill Christian blog, rather than a Game blog, in part because I don’t sympathize or associate with the PUA community, and because I don’t cover the one-on-one interpersonal skills and tactics which can be considered Game, or “Micro-Game.” Only occasionally will I link a site like Roissy’s, although I do read them from time to time. So I am familiar with a lot of Game and PUA concepts. I know many of the theories, and even some application skills. While I’ve never gone to a nightclub to exercise them in the manner of a PUA, I have employed a number of the lesser tactics in other social situations. And I can vouch that they work. Oh do they.
In the many, many months since I became acquainted with the Red Pill, I have been able to dramatically turn around my interactions with women. Thanks to changes in my body language, clothing, physical fitness and some more adroit verbal skills, I can now dominate most conversations with members of the opposite sex. In my Blue Pill days such a notion was laughable. Now I am not only skilled enough to discern IOIs, Indicators of Interest, but I am actually seeing them directed my way by good looking women. This transformation has been so profound that I have to confront, for perhaps the first time in my life, the possibility that a woman might actually like me. As in Like, like me. All without my making her the target of my attentions and affections.
And this isn’t necessarily an academic possibility that I now face; a recent conversation with a female acquaintance of mine left me convinced that she would be receptive to any advances I might make. In fact, the kino she was engaged in with me seemed aimed, at least subconsciously, to encourage such advances. Alas, she is not wife material, so nothing can come of it. At least, nothing can come of it if I don’t abuse my new found power. However, the thought has come into my mind of using this woman, and others who show an interest in me, as “practice targets.” That is, I practice “Game” on them in order to hone my inter-personal skills with women.
With Great Power comes Great Re- bah, you know the rest….
Just because something can be done, doesn’t mean that it should be done. And that something includes Game. Naomi at Embraceyourfemininity has written a post explaining how women shouldn’t abuse their feminine charms. That same advice applies to men as well. Discovering Game and the Red Pill is often a life-changing event. Once someone masters that knowledge, they gain a huge amount of power over women. And that power should never be abused. Women can be afflicted with oneitis, just like men, and can pine away for someone who is out of their reach. The plight of Beta Orbiters is something well understood in the manosphere, and for good reason: these men have lost a large measure of their masculinity and are now little better than appliances for the woman they orbit. It is less common, but women can act the same way as well for a man who isn’t interested in them. Or at least interested in committing to them; they often have no problem having sex with those women but aren’t interested in anything more.
My advice to men is this: don’t become what you hate. Don’t abuse the power you have recently acquired. With a detailed understanding of game it becomes remarkably easy to manipulate women. You will be tempted to use your skills to get what you want from women, irrespective of the harm you may cause. And as you learn more, you will be tempted to go further and further, to push your talents to their limit. But if you go down that path, you become no better than the women who used and abused you (and other men) before you took the Red Pill. Manipulating a woman to make her fall for you and then leaving her behind in the dust is a sure fire way to improve your Game. But at the same time it is a sure-fire way to erode your soul.
I am not going to use the women around me as Game “practice dummies.” They are real human beings, who deserve better than to be treated as guinea pigs while I conduct a social experiment. I have seen what happens to men who treat women as playthings, or worse. Either they become filled with hate, a poison which eats away at you until there is nothing left, or they become completely apathetic to women, no longer able to feel anything for or from women. That will not be my fate, and I advise my readers not to let it become theirs, either.
In the end, it all comes down to the Golden Rule:
In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets.
