As the world becomes increasingly globalized and connected, different countries are starting to look the same. This country has the same kebab as that country. This country has the same fashion as that country. This country has the same English speakers who believe in the same things as that country. They are all becoming nothing more than coworking spaces, uniquely designed “offices” that are “fun” for slaves to work and socialize in.

You can blame the internet, airplanes, Hollywood, or what have you, but the world is being robbed not only of its cultural diversity but also human diversity. New York, Washington D.C., London, Berlin, and Sydney have the same alien caste system of leftist white workers managing their hopeful colored pets, all looking for “opportunity” and “success.” People in these cities may live thousands of miles away from each other, but they think and behave in the same ways and are trained to respond to globohomo stimuli in the same sterilized consumer manner.

Anywhere in Europe

Even if you visit an exotic locale, where you take pictures of the major sights from the same angles as thousands of other people, or you have a genuine moment with a local, which you have to tell everyone lest the experience go to waste, odds are you will add nothing to your being by stepping foot in another country. You won’t learn another language, you won’t experience struggle besides a blocked credit card, and you won’t go a single minute without access to your favorite internet sites. Go to this coworking space downtown or that coworking space in midtown—what’s the difference besides the size of your desk and the decorations hanging on the walls? I can receive more novelty today by going on YouTube than visiting another European city.

If countries are like coworking spaces, our sexual partners are like rental cars. It starts with the exciting moment you ease yourself into the seat of a car you’ve never driven before, and proceed to ride it aggressively since you know you’ll never have to buy it. You’ll slam the door harder than necessary and put in the cheapest gas you can find. It’s okay if you dent it up a little—just tell the rental agency that it was there beforehand, and get angry if they disagree. There is no feeling of ownership, no sense of pride.

She’s abusing her rental

What better way to go to your coworking space than in a rental car. You feel stable, as if you are part of the local community, but you’ll have to give the rental car back in a week or so, and the coworking space gets boring after you’ve had your fill of their free coffee and sweets. So off to another space in another rental car for another hyper-sexualized and commercialized experience that is barely different from the previous one. You embark on a futile attempt to undergo what conquerors and explorers of old have experienced, yet they put their lives on the line while you are reluctant to even sacrifice mobile internet.

Everywhere is different, but everywhere is also the same. Once you hit a certain age, there will be nothing left in the external world to pleasure you. Anything truly novel or special will have already been packaged and neatly delivered to your eyes, ears, and genitals. You won’t help but feel nostalgic, to imagine that things had to be better in the past, that meaning was constant and always flowing, and whether that is true or not, if the external world is already conquered, all that’s left to explore is the internal.

    This must be the world of The Last Man that Nietzsche envisioned, where nothing truly great can ever happen because the market has consumed and repackaged everything.
    Everything rare and exceptional that occurs outside of the confines of the market is viewed with suspicion, and this leads to the few great minds of each generation to go voluntarily into the madhouse.

    The most blackpilling element is realizing how many people actually prefer this setup. Where they will literally be bred by an outside force into the perfect dutiful slave caste, a fate they accept because the managers offer them physical comforts and social adulation in exchange for their sovereignty and the composition of who and what they are.

    It’s really quite perverted when you see what’s going on. And it’s weird seeing the people who support this state of affairs that are wholly miserable despite offering themselves up to it so completely.

    The modern world is a real and in some ways overwhelming challenge to innately red-pill men, who Nietzsche predicted would have no choice but to contend with or flee from it.

    1. mossyhammer April 8, 2019 at 11:47 am

      CK. I appreciate your perspective. My eyes are wide open and experience, regularly, the “overwhelming challenge”, but I don’t feel overwhelmed per se. Frustrated, yes. While I’ve never been a “sheep”, I believe I’m moving toward apathetic sheepdog (family and close tribe being the exception).

      Roosh. Thank you for your constant truths. Even when I don’t agree, you deserve respect and appreciation.

    2. OceanSon April 9, 2019 at 2:44 am

      Increasingly we are exposed — through real life, the media or otherwise — to memes and scenes that are counter-intuitive (or as you say “perverse”) in the light of nature’s law, by overtly promoting the left side of a bell curve’s proliferation over the better half. The “toxic masculinity” brainwash meme or the “war on men,” in a lot of ways, is basically me being penalized for exceeding expectations. Clown world is an upside-down an feelings-based realm where raw statistics can be seen as enemies. Red-pill headwinds turn shades of black as we collectively backslide; perhaps it is human nature to be subsumed by the idiot horde as the cycles of establishments and empires shift, and nature itself who lets the rats overrun the cities.

      As our fortunes rusted and the hated destinies foamed up growling from the fathoms, I once dreamt I was a solitary cormorant, sleek wings a-flurry, streaking out to the place where sea and sky dissolve into each other…and was lost from sight. But when I awoke, I resolved to stay and fight again.

    3. Anti-Gnostic April 19, 2019 at 8:22 am

      “This must be the world of The Last Man that Nietzsche envisioned”

      Completely overrated

      “where nothing truly great can ever happen because the market has consumed and repackaged everything.”

      Assuming that is the case here.

      “The most blackpilling element is realizing how many people actually prefer this setup.”

      Free will. Eyes wide open. Self-conscious. Again, you are assuming that high IQ (white) men are easily manipulated.

      “Where they will literally be bred by an outside force into the perfect dutiful slave caste, a fate they accept because the managers offer them physical comforts and social adulation in exchange for their sovereignty and the composition of who and what they are.”

      There is no “dutiful slave caste”, just people freely living their own lives.

      1. Out of oil money May 13, 2019 at 2:02 am

        Right, because if they do it with freedom then there is no problem ever.
        Ignorance is free.

      2. ehh May 19, 2019 at 9:12 pm

        “Completely overrated”

        Assuming this is the case.

        “Assuming that is the case here”

        He’s actually pointing out an observable fact that only some contrarian dumbass citing some inappropriately formal method of investigation and classification of established fact would argue with.

        “Free will. Eyes wide open. Self-conscious. Again, you are assuming that high IQ (white) (?) men are easily manipulated.”

        1) No he’s not, and 2) gay.

        “There is no ‘dutiful slave caste,’ just people freely living their own lives.”

        Assuming this is the case (it’s not).

    I don’t understand you Roosh. You rail against comfort, abundance, and novelty. Yet your life is filled with these things. Join the military and fight in Afghanistan if that’s how you really feel.

    As someone who’s fought in a war zone let me tell you that it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be. I’ll take comfort, prosperity, and sexual abundance any day over heat, deprivation, forced chastity, and fear.

    1. Tom April 8, 2019 at 2:51 pm

      Mike, you fought in Afghanistan because the Jews told you to fight there against the Muslims. You were a sheep too. How effective was the intel you recieve about fighting for our “freedoms”? Didn’t you get paid for those efforts? Most American men have no choice, but to fight dirty Jewish wars because they can’t work in a female feminist run office building working for a “non profit”

      1. Anon April 13, 2019 at 5:49 pm

        Which Jews told him to do that exactly? Bet you can’t answer you brain-wash idiot. Also this Roosh guy is a moron at cyber security… I wouldn’t trust a word he says about understanding women, he’s clearly a charlatan trying to take your money from you.

        It’s much more fulfilling and rewarding to start your own army than be someone else’s grunt. Also western militaries will not red pill their 17 yo cadets on women in the least bit. They will crush their balls first, worse than some HR corporate lady gestappo. In some ways Roosh has a thought army here. Isn’t it true that the MSM monopolists always said “If you don’t like reading our propaganda, then freedom of the press says you should go out and start your own newsrag. (if you can)?

      2. Anon April 13, 2019 at 5:53 pm

        Go jerk off into your cum-rag you brain-washed Incel. You have no idea what freedom of the press is. Everytime you Incels post one of your moronic theories this is all I can think: “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.”

        “It’s all Chad’s fault! Can’t possibly be that no one likes me cause can I never bath and want to exterminate 50% of the population cause I’m afraid of them”

      3. CallFofReason April 16, 2019 at 4:47 am

        ““Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.””

        You may be thinking that, but that’s certainly not what you are doing….. talking too much. So, congratulations again! You have removed all doubt!

      4. Out of oil money May 13, 2019 at 2:09 am

        Who’s blaming Chad? Who is not bathing and shooting? I thought Jews were Chaims. And at any rate, it’s all rich cosmopolitans..

        It certainly is easier to start your own army than to join an existing one.

      It’s that comfort and fleeting pleasures have become the ends, rather than means. Though this is something everyone, individually, is in total control, some are so mindless and unable to throw it off, you’d think the materialist mindset is mandated by the government. While having lots of money alone won’t make you truly happy, certainly, being rich does not, in any way, prevent it. And, of course, it gives you more freedom, at least of movement, if nothing else. You just have to have the sense of what’s really important in life- being around those who love you, and you don’t really need to be rich to have that.

    4. chronoblip April 10, 2019 at 10:41 am

      The only reason you feel that way about comfort, prosperity, and sexual abundance is because of the critical negative life experiences you’ve had creating a difference in how your brain reacts to stimulus.

      Whenever you sit on a couch, your brain has different pathways that it can use to sort the incoming stimulus before you become consciously aware of it, because it has a basis for comparison to refer back to. You can sit on a couch and your brain can immediately compare it to sitting on rocky ground and inform you that “this couch is not that bad”.

      Roosh’s brain doesn’t have that sorting capability, and so he must consciously exert effort just to perceive and then sort incoming stimulus the way your brain does “naturally”. And it gets worse.

      Being in his late 30’s, Roosh is already more than a decade out from his brain being ready and able to develop any new pathways easily. Unless he could go back in time and have the same experiences you did, enlisting now would not have the same effect on him as it did you.

      He has no formative experiences of being thankful to sit at all, even on rocky ground, so the routing of the stimulus is completely different for him, even if you’re both sitting on the same couch.

      The reason that Roosh rails against these things is because people do not understand the permanent damage they are causing to themselves and their children by permitting such activities and lifestyles without the proper critical life experiences beforehand that force the brain to develop and mature to handle those things without inviting terrible consequences.

      It is akin to a rich parent giving their young child who doesn’t know how to drive a sportscar. The child will have no idea how much trouble they can get into, how fast they can get into it, and how permanent the price they may have to pay is. The dangers don’t even register until it’s “too late”.

      This doesn’t mean sportscars are inherently bad, or even that the child is inherently irresponsible, but that instead of a focus on “freedom”, a mature parent who loves their children should be placing constraints on their child until sufficient competency is demonstrated, and likewise society should be placing constraints on individuals for the same reason.

      Once mastery has been demonstrated at the individual level, then constraints can be relaxed for that individual, and great new experiences can be had, but society wanted to skip past the hard part and go straight to just having great experiences.

      Now people have dopamine receptors that are burned out, and the only way for them to feel anything is for catastrophically terrible life experiences to break their existing pathways completely, forcing the brain to scramble and rebuild.

      Most people simply won’t survive that process, especially as they get older and older and their brains get more and more set in their structure and struggle to sustain any existing functionality, let alone try and build anything new.

      It may not be “too late” for Roosh, but it is certainly not “too late” for the generations that are being raised up now, or are only just coming into adulthood, and these are the people that Roosh wants to teach, to mentor, to shape so that the future has more hope.

      1. MCG00 April 13, 2019 at 12:13 pm

        Roosh did make an unprecedented break from corporate institutional life when his brain still had neuro pathways that were open for development. He learned volumes which he wrote in the Bang series. Female coworkers in his old bio field who he left behind likely became genetic dead ends. The culture in a bio health related field for some reason encourages even the brightest and most industrious mule workers to at best mate with an Oriental female and produce only one offspring. Happens all the time – science dept head of 140+ IQ with physics and engineering degrees all over his office wall has some tempermental Asian wife who squeezed out an only child offspring – and with much bitching and difficulty. Are they following by default the Chinese one child model since the institute’s technical work produced inevitably ends up being purchased by Chinese interests?

        Roosh has expressed his uninterest in mating with Oriental women, likely because the tech corporate culture pushes this type of mating only for the best and brightest. For the remainder of the populace, a genderfluid nonreproductive sterility lifestyle is pushed by the elite homoglobulii.

        The homoglobulii can’t stand Trump with his wife who looks like she just stepped off the cover of Sports Illustrated. They wanted more of an omega ‘Jeb’ with his midget beard, similar to how the British royalty now promotes sexless gender fluidity on it’s own offspring. And haven’t you noticed the glut of MIDGET reality shows? They want us to watch the drama of the MOST difficult and troublesome breeders – the midgets – who also are fraught with compromised longevity and multitudes of inherent genetic defects with the organs. What a way to further arrest the healthy continuation of the human seedline watching that crap drama.

        It’s never too late to bridge neuro pathways that didn’t develop in early life. Only the worst case retards from special ed appear to be wiped clean with no remnants of free neuro pathways to develop and bridge. Case in point: the borderline retards who come out of public education – notice how some borderline barely functional drones who operate machinery or find some state or charity job have absolutely NO common knowledge on the world? They barely even know who the President is because it’s not important to their drone life. They have to think a moment who the POTUS is. THEN notice the real borderlines, the ones with the thick glasses and the ten pound ring of keys on their belt – notice how they are absolutely programmed to “see something say something”?

        Normal remedial public schooling is only a hair above SPECIAL ED. Special ed ‘graduates’ come out of a psychiatric petri dish educational experiment where they are absolutely hard wired for life to be robot see something say something snitches. They are the model prototype who doesn’t trust their own neighbor and runs to the authoritative nanny state with even the smallest problem. They absolutely cannot think for themselves and are unsalvagable for the survival and continuation of our species.

        Female borderline retards who come out of the remedial and below brainwashing with only a scant brain stem and no available neuro pathways to develop (because they’ve been burnt and cauterized) are ideal “see something say something” robo snitches too. They work the mundane idiot jobs whereas in the past they were homemakers and were bred to the max by another simple beta working mule. The survival rate of the offspring wasn’t total, sometimes 50% due to economic constraints and forgetfulness sometimes on the part of a slightly mentally challenged mother, leaving an infant outside and forgetting for example, but the heartiest survived like always.

        And what does Mr Homoglobo & Co have to offer the intelligent upper end of the IQ bellcurve?? Why that would be wifing up some tiny Asian piece from your department and producing an Asian hybrid lone single only child offspring if any. Cha-ching. Geez.

    Everywhere is different, but everywhere is also the same. Once you hit a certain age, there will be nothing left in the external world to pleasure you. Anything truly novel or special will have already been packaged and neatly delivered to your eyes, ears, and genitals. You won’t help but feel nostalgic, to imagine that things had to be better in the past, that meaning was constant and always flowing, and whether that is true or not, if the external world is already conquered, all that’s left to explore is the internal.

    Speak for yourself.

    For most men of strong body and sound mind, it’s a great time to be alive.

    Your disappointment with ‘neatly packaged experiences’ and that ‘the external world is conquered’ are more artifacts of your mind, your despondency, and your lack of imagination than objective reality.

    For anyone who’s lived long enough, life is full of setbacks and victories, frustrations and pleasures, tragedy and comedy, aggravation and amusement, elation and despair, fortune and disaster, growth and stagnancy. There are numerous avenues for finding enjoyment and contentment, for achieving mastery and knowledge, for seeking profound and modest delights. And there are also numerous avenues for slipping into darkness and submission.

    But when presented before your very eyes with the true variety of lived experience in the world – from the North African ‘refugee’ in Munich to the harried salaryman in East Asia to the degenerate expat in Phuket to the street food vendor in Mexico City to the lame SJW wine mom to the smallholder farmer in the 3rd world to the demoralized incel in the modern West — it’s hard to agree, in any sense, with the barren observation that the world resembles a variety of co-working spaces and that your sexual partners are interchangeable rental cars.

    From where I sit, a more accurate metaphor is that you are more like a turtle who is deciding to retreat into its shell rather than keeping your head out, moving around, and appreciating the spectacle of an ever-changing, complex, and dynamic world. The thrust of this post the musings of a desensitized, melancholic, and calloused mind that is squandering opportunities for enjoyment, perception, insight and camaraderie.

    For me, this way of seeing the world is neither ennobling, nor empowering, and not even the least bit accurate.

    It’s reductive and pitiable.

    1. Tom April 8, 2019 at 7:30 pm

      Billydingdong, thanks for that analysis. It’s almost a great exit speech out of the West though lol.

      “from the North African ‘refugee’ in Munich to the harried salaryman in East Asia to the degenerate expat in Phuket to the street food vendor in Mexico City to the lame SJW wine mom to the smallholder farmer in the 3rd world to the demoralized incel in the modern West — it’s hard to agree, in any sense, with the barren observation that the world resembles a variety of co-working spaces and that your sexual partners are interchangeable rental cars.”

      Don’t be a gamma.

      His whole point is that the regional element in gone. The North African ‘refugee’ is in Munich, so is the salaryman, so is the degenerate, so are street food venders of all stripes, so are SJW Moms, and even the small farmer shows up on market days. They’re all in Munich, and in Milan, and in San Francisco. Nearly everything you’ve listed can be found in every metropolitan area. No matter what city your in, you’ve got your Halal Kebabs ready.

      And how old are you? Don’t need to be specific, a decade range would be fine.

      I ask because people who have “lived long enough” are frequently ignorant about just how significantly the world has changed.

      The hatred for boomers, for example, is fueled by the constant “well this worked for me, if it doesn’t work for you, the problem is obviously you” bullshit, which rapidly falls apart under even cursory examination.

      Billydingdong’s post has been up for 3 days and Roosh has failed to respond to it. That’s a more than striking omission; and it’s a profoundly revealing moment.

      The post, although very politely written, punctures Roosh’s metaphysic with an absolutely deadly and pointed indictment.

      It would be contemptible cowardice for Roosh to ignore it.

    5. guesterino April 13, 2019 at 11:37 am

      This is an incisive and well written indictment on Roosh’s cynical take on the world. While Roosh is right that the world is becoming wholly globalized, there are plenty of genuine and refreshing experiences left still. Just step outside reading forums and hanging out in downtown city centers and you will quickly start to “live.” You may not like it though, nothing is for certain and people are unpredictable.

      – This is where I stopped reading.

      What you call artifacts of his mind, my friend, is the ability to see, observe, notice and come to conclusions. It is the furthest point from inability to “imagine”.

      On the other hand, your aggressive, way too aggressive, stance against his opinions and views is a textbook case of “lack of imagination”.

      Nothing to see here… go away…

      1. Guesterino April 19, 2019 at 11:50 am

        Sounds like you’re a brainwashed “muh Roosh” follower. Roosh has many good points and never shies away from writing hard truths but we can all agree that over the five years there has been a marked shift in his tone, style, and focus. For starters he started becoming more obsessed with politics and less with game. Two, his failure to find long term relationship only seems to sour his perspective on the world more. It’s ironic that despite his singular focus on women, and notch count, he has failed to find meaningful relationship.

        Roosh brings many good points to men, and some women, but to blindly follow him would be idiotic. He’s not perfect. In his defense he never said he was.

    I think the real value of clown world has been to highlight the limits of sensual pursuits to discerning people. I don’t think just the village bicycle, moonshine, and a ukelele would have gotten the point across to me. It took years of hedonism that only the modern west could provide. Now maybe a harem of 100 10/10 nymphs would do it for me, but something tells me it wouldn’t.

    There are still countries that have not been completely ruined. You, me or other rootless nomads won’t enjoy them, though. While we like to rail against cities losing their character, we simultaneously demand a full globohomo consumer experience; a cup of good americano; Über ride; hotels built with ‘international best practices’; prepaid 4G LTE; service in English. We are part of the globohomo problem. Through our presence, we spread it, infecting and ruining those cities even further.

    The last frontier is the mind, indeed. Has always been.

      Don’t forget the chocolate croissant with a perfectly flakey crust. 🥐

      1. Panzerfaust April 9, 2019 at 1:12 am

        Don’t trigger an old geezer! First time I tasted such a thing was in an int’l military base in Pristina, Kosovo about 8 years ago. I thought it was just an ordinary croissant and took a bite. That fucking chocolate was all over and just kept on coming. What a mess! Filling a croissant with chocolate is a perverted idea – it is just plain wrong. I won’t hold that craving against you, though.

        Spanish churros with chocolate is doable, as long as they serve the choco in a separate cup.

    2. Tom April 9, 2019 at 7:58 pm

      Panzerfaust, the last frontier is the mind and i agree with you completely. I also want to add that the world has always been “global”. How did we get spices and teas from the East? How did US citizens migrate from Western Europe? How do lands get conquered? However, with social media, internet, airplanes etc the world has become very homogenized. There is a middle ground too. We don’t have to go completely upside down either. A woman from Moscow is typically very different than a woman from Los Angeles even though they seem the “same”. A car afterall still has four wheels 99% of the time.

    The less you put in the system, the happier you turn out. We suffer, because on a subconscious level, we didn’t divorce from the system. We are still ready at a moment’s notice to fight its battles, and postpone or forgo ours.

    1. Neo April 9, 2019 at 7:31 am

      This is a sign that the system is broken.

  9. My Comment April 8, 2019 at 10:35 pm

    I am in my mind 60’s and find I still get pleasure from the external world. In many ways I get more pleasure from the external world since I started meditating and doing internal exploration.

    I am increasingly less enchanted with the modern world in general and drawn more to the old and nature. I have found that even the modern world can have its charms if I live in the moment and appreciate the small things like a chocolate croissant. As Warren Zevon suggested, enjoy each sandwich.

    To Roosh’s point, most places are becoming anywherevilles so I like observing the vanishing unique aspects of areas before they disappear.

    When I travel now, I like to spend very little time in rootless, diverse cosmopolitan cities such as New York and Paris. I also seldom care anymore about famous monuments and such sites and instead just like observing people and seeing how they live their lives including what they eat and drink.

    However, now I am placing nature above anything man made. As the world gets blander, nature seems even more glorious in comparison. I get a greater feeling that there must be some kind of divine power that created life from observing nature than from any cathedral.

  10. Leigh April 9, 2019 at 1:05 am

    I’ve always felt that most big cities seem the same to me. Same flavorless cosmopolitan experience. Same manic monotonous atmosphere where one gets lost in the shuffle. And the lack of nature, stifling. When my best friend and I went off to college, I ended up in a small town and she ended up in a large city. She (and to an extent myself) always thought I’d eventually move to a large city, but the prospect seemed soul-deadening somehow. I even moved to a smaller town of a few thousand for a time. I live near a lot of national forest and parkland and can get lost and feel like a little bit of a pioneer if I devote some time and planning to it. And I get self defensive when one of my favorite places gets swept up in some popular travel Instagram craze – cause yes, people visit those places to get the selfie and obsessively document/show off that they were there. They didn’t go to quietly enjoy the beauty of the place.

    You can sit there and complain about your apathy, rail against the creature comforts that trap you or you can commit to making a more significant change. By the way, I think Alaska would be a good consideration for you. It’s home (the US) but very different from the lower 48. And you are surrounded by an abundance of nature with many citizens devoted to self-sustenance and self-reliance.

    We live in a vastly complex society which has been able to provide us with a multitude of material things, and this is good. But since at least the 1950s, Americans have been suspecting that we’ve paid a high spiritual price for our plenty. Each person would like to feel that they are an entity, a separate individual capable of independent existence, and this is hard to believe when everything we eat, wear, live in, drive, use or handle has required the cooperative effort of millions of people to produce, process, transport and, eventually, distribute to our hands. “Man” simply must feel he is more than a mere mechanical part in this intrinsically interdependent industrial system. We enjoy the comforts of highly organized production and technology, but don’t we sometimes feel that we are living a secondhand sort of existence, in danger of losing contact with the origins of life and the nature which nourishes it?

    Fortunately, there is a saving streak of the primitive in all of us who sought to escape the increasing complications of modern life by running off to some remote desert, forsaken pine barren, or windswept South Sea isle to eat coconuts, fish and breadfruit. In retracing ancient instincts upon an otherworldly California desert landscape, I realize how very few of us will ever be faced with the necessity of living off the wild open country for any extended period of time. The venerated outdoor skills, crucial to the survival of our ancestors, are now utilized in the service of recreation.

    Nice job as usual, Roosh, though I thought the final paragraph was a bit oversimplified. Ever forward…

    Once you hit a certain age, there will be nothing left in the external world to pleasure you. Anything truly novel or special will have already been packaged and neatly delivered to your eyes, ears, and genitals….
    all that’s left to explore is the internal.

    Seeking pleasure above all else is a – modern – invention. Men, Europeans at least, didn’t make their mission having sex with 1000s of women. That is something of the animal realm (eat, sleep, sex). We aren’t animals, so it will not lead to happiness.

    Here’s a solution by a famous German artist:

    “Struggle is the father of all things. It is not by the principles of humanity that man lives or is able to preserve himself above the animal world, but solely by means of the most brutal struggle. ”

    A similar sentiment can be found in the Bible.

    Looking forward to reading your God Pill article.

    very true Roosh, though i don’t see any reversion to the past ways happening any time soon short of a apocalyptic event

    countries are just going to get more homogenised and commodified as the global culture takes over

    japan and korea are unique but they’ll not last forever

    i really don’t think a single intractable place absent from time and modernity’s negatives is possible

    Children offer the remedy to not being able to experience novelty after a certain age because they see everything as new. They are mesmerized by ceiling fans, and then you stop and think, yeah I guess a ceiling fan would be pretty incredible if I had never seen one before.

    1. FisherOfMen April 13, 2019 at 8:06 pm

      This always gets left out as a cure for blackpilledness. You aren’t invested in the world until you have kids. You’re just a passerby– so naturally you feel nothing.

      IMO people who don’t have children shouldn’t even be able to vote. They just aren’t invested in the world.

    I noticed the same thing while traveling these days. Everyone looks the same with the same makeup and same adidas track suit. Cultures are becoming a thing of the past. What we have is a cultureless capitalist culture where girls follow IG models and try to look like them. Truly depressing, and now Julian Assange was arrested…democracy is a scam.

    ” That liberation of humanity whose praises the 19th century sang ended up being nothing more than international tourism. ”

    ” In this century of nomadic crowds profaning every illustrious place, the only homage a respectful pilgrim can render a venerable shrine is not to visit it.”

    “The world that would be worth traveling in only exists in old travelogues.” (from memory, translated from the German).

    — Nicolás Gómez Dávila

    Yeah, if I wasn’t a believing Christian, there would be nothing that would stop me from offing myself. This world is a rather crude place, especially our modern times. It’s a dull experience, no idea why Vox Day praises it so much; after all, God’s gonna destroy it in the end anyway, and it’s fallen, as we know. So, why are many Christians painting such a rosy picture of this awful planet we were forced onto? No idea. Also, sex is very, very boring and girls and women are extreme time sinks. The fact that PUAs don’t simply go to a hooker (which would result in the same: sexual intercourse) is extremely irrational. I don’t want to think of how much time they waste that they otherwise could spent learning and reading stuff.

    So, fuck this world and fuck these times. See also: Jeremiah 20:14-18, Ecclesiastes 4:3, Job 10:13 etc. pp.

    1. JED E MASK April 13, 2019 at 1:44 pm

      True, I agree with all your sentiments really brother; but this world is also good to live in but it’s just a “fallen battlefield” where one has to fight to survive and make a good life for self and others.

      May you be blessed in God’s Will in your life brother. Peace.

    Roosh, how do you reconcile your white nationalism with the fact that your parents were Muslim immigrants from Iran? How do you reconcile your ideology with the fact that most other alt-righters would never have wanted you to come here and view you as being racially inferior? I’ve seen some make excuses about how Iranians are white Aryans, but I doubt that they’re happy about the Iranians who are migrating into Europe right now.

    It’s odd that the son of Iranian immigrants — a product of globalism — hates globalism as much as you do. You’re aware that without the things you hate, you’d likely be speaking Farsi and going to the mosque five times a day, correct? And that if legitimate alt righters come to power, people like your parents would be target number one?

    1. Sworn Sword April 14, 2019 at 7:42 am

      This is a dishonest attempt at a rebuttal predicated on defining Roosh’s position as ‘white nationalism’ and depending on the emotionality typical of your associates to compel them to accept the parade of non-sequiturs that you follow up with.

      The idea that Roosh being the son of Iranian immigrants is necessarily a result brought about by globalism is preposterous. Roosh explicitly rejects globalism and has made and continues to make the attempt to assimilate into the European culture that built Western civilization. That is not the case for the overwhelming majority of immigrants in the modern era, as illustrated by their sustained attempts to participate in changing the culture. There has been some degree of migration throughout human history, although those peoples who did not manage any significant achievements in transportation technology have only done so in great numbers very recently. The actual number of immigrants to a given nation, their provenance, and their intention to assimilate are all critical to evaluating the phenomenon of immigration itself.

      You also betray your ignorance on the matter of people from Iran. Many Iranians would consider themselves Persian, rather than feeling a meaningful connection with any putative Islamic theocracy. There is also a rich history of written language, technology, and levels of cooperation from people with that biological heritage which is absent from, for example, sub-Saharan Africa.

      Finally you demonstrate your arrogance by presuming to label ‘legitimate’ alt-righters as being those who most expediently fit your straw man of a violent underclass whose dominant motivation is that most nebulous lynchpin of globalist dogma- ‘Hate’.

      You would be better served training your skeptical eye on yourself.

      1. Anti-Gnostic April 21, 2019 at 11:41 am

        Except Roosh does NOT reject globalism, as he tried to bang the world and package his product for profit to incels like yourself.

        He is a vibrant. And you are defending him.

        You both have to go back.

      2. Jack April 29, 2019 at 8:00 pm

        It’s difficult to “reject” globalism while literally being a product of it. Without open borders, Roosh would have grown up under an oppressive Islamic regime. If the immigration policies he wants had been enacted, he never would have existed. The comfortable life and abundant opportunities that he — a Middle Eastern immigrant — enjoyed in the West would have been impossible without globalism, liberalism, and open borders.

        Roosh is a product of globalism, but he also willingly engages in it despite all the internet posts he writes against it. He’s literally relocated to Eastern Europe and enjoys the benefits of that society for the pure purpose of banging women and engaging in hedonism. If he really believed in ethnonationalism, he’d go back to Iran and try to make it a better society.

        Instead, he’s hitched his flag to a group that despises people like him, views them as being undesirable, and would never have wanted him or his parents in the country in the first place. Trump literally wanted to ban immigration from Iran and he isn’t even the most extreme person on your side of the isle.

        Rrright. Or so that’s the b.s. he peddles.

        And even if true, the Turks slaughtered millions of Armenian Christians… and his mom married and procreated with a Turk because love trumps hate. Lol.

        Even if true, his mother is an original migrant invader-loving whore.

    My personal retreat and sanctuary is the world of art, specifically Western classical music. That is a sphere completely immune from the ills of the modern world (in its old artifacts, if not in its modern representatives) which is rich enough to explore forever. That is just my sanctuary; you can find yours. Nature and science also offer limitless realms of exploration.

    There’s plenty of wild places left. But these places involve taking risks with your life, and the women there are frequently butt ugly.

    You won’t be able to get your chocolate croissants in them either.

    What you’re really saying is that all the cool relatively civilized interesting places with interesting culture and nice looking girls s where there is no danger of getting robbed are becoming the same.

    I agree.

    But that’s just a consumer complaint.

    Roosh, I realized that with each passing year, people are losing their peace of mind and are driven by tbe external stimuli. I believe, one day the elite will surely dominate the masses because the minds of the people will get so numb that they would fail to realize that they are being herded as slaves.
