Nature’s Program

For millions of years, the worker ant has been following a genetic program to serve its queen. To maintain a harmonious society, it commits its life in the hive to one of hard labor. It’s good work but not always easy.

One day a mysterious mind-altering chemical is sprayed over the queen. It inexplicably leaves the worker ants and serves a new master, the wasp. The queen is initially hesitant about this change, but the wasp is bigger and stronger, and promises to give its new subject even more benefits than the worker ants could provide for her. All the queen ant has to do is work just a bit harder than before.

Thanks to the wasp’s better mobility, it is able to shower the queen with more gifts and exotic foods that she has never before seen. The queen is happy that her increased labor is resulting in an increased gain of stuff received.

After working for the wasp for many months, the queen can’t say she’s happier. In fact, she’s less happy, with a dull dissatisfaction that plagues its days no matter how much stuff the wasp gives it. The wasp, seeing this dissatisfaction, sprays her with more chemical to keep her confused. It then distracts her with various gossip from the grasshopper hive and also tells her that with just a little bit more work, she can get the new type of bread crumb that the preying mantises are eating. The queen decides not to return to the worker ants because she doesn’t want to receive less gifts, food, and entertainment. To her, happiness is material, something she can touch with her mandible.

So the queen stays with the wasp until her death, thinking she made the correct life decision. The wasp, of course, received much more from the queen’s labor than what it gave her, becoming the richest wasp around. The queen died with nothing, not even a bread crumb to her name, with muscles that were strained from hard labor.

As much free will as human beings think they have, we’ve been programmed by nature to fulfill a certain mission. Nature rewards us with the release of enjoyable neurotransmitters if we do so. Even if the mission appears basic and maybe even “boring,” going against it will guarantee dissatisfaction for the animal subject.

Human males are programmed for adventure, accomplishment, and procreation.

Human females are programmed for nesting, communication, and procreation.

The chemical being sprayed upon all of us, particularly women, has them serving a new power instead of having a natural relationship with the worker ant, which is the human male. She bows down to her new masters: her consulting firm, Facebook, Apple computer, gender neutrality groupthink, restaurant week, and so on, receiving much more validation and worldly enjoyment than one man could possibly give her. Yet she is less happy than ever. She is becoming mentally sick, self medicating more than her species ever has in human history.

In spite of this, she would never trade in her new masters for a single hard-working man. She doesn’t want to be a “stay at home mom,” a phrase that the wasp has cleverly redefined as “slave.” Every now and then she suspects she would be happier if she went back to the ant hive, but then she thinks of how the wasp would no longer give her shiny gifts that the worker ants cannot possibly carry on their backs. She decides to remain with the wasp, dying alone and unhappy.

If you go against the program that nature has installed in you, you will become sick. To tell all women that their path to happiness is to run the male program instead of the female program they were born with is one of the biggest lies told to womankind. The result is what we see now: a collective collapse of women into derangement and masculinity, of entitled women who have a loose grasp on reality and what it means to be human.

The wasp is getting nervous now. The worker ants are not happy that their queen were stolen from them. Their revolt is just beginning, but deep inside they know that natural order will never be restored to their hive. The best thing they can do is travel a long distance to a new hive where the wasp has not yet sprayed its chemical on the queen.

    “Human females are programmed for nesting, communication, and procreation.”

    There’s your answer. The “nesting” program females follow means they’re more likely to stick with their job over their boyfriend because nesting is higher up on their programming order.

    “Human females are programmed for nesting, communication, and procreation.”

    Not quite.

    Human females are programmed for a desire for alpha genes and a desire for financial and material security.

  6. Gmac May 7, 2012 at 10:15 am

    This is going to go over a lot of heads.

    I’m diggin’ the analogies. The sad fact is western women really are becoming more lonely, unhappy, and distracted by social media and technology. I have dated more women afflicted by depression, various forms of anxiety, ADHD, and other mental illnesses than I ever thought possible (though they often hide it). Unfortunately, I think this problem is only going to get worse.

    Of course, the average worker ant is none the wiser… he couldn’t capture the queen’s interest for more than a moment if he wanted.

  7. Tampa May 7, 2012 at 10:16 am

    You forgot to mention nature’s ultimate regulator of the female ego and choice….

    Father time.

    They can’t escape it. It nails them to the wall…literally. Then the worker bees don’t even want her anymore. Pretty sad

  8. Gmac May 7, 2012 at 10:16 am

    Those women I’m talking about are the ones who use social media more than anyone else… Obsessed with pop culture, sites like facebook and pinterest, etc.

    who are these human males that are adventuring and taking risks and accomplishing things?

    sitting at a desk in a cubicle and working to pay his mortgage is hardly adventure and accomplishment.

    you could write another one of these and argue the human male is also failing to live up to his programming.

    perhaps the programming for men and women is changing (evolving)?

    I wonder how much Roosh will eventually change the future of feminism, females, and humankind in general? Before I discovered, I knew a few of the concepts he talks about, but I turned a blind eye… ‘Cause that’s what society taught me to do. Seeing it all put in front of me the way Roosh writes it changed me forever, though. I now look at the world from an entirely different perspective, and opinions more honestly, with greater scrutiny. These writings invoke such a desire to escape from this backwards society, it almost feels like a necessity. Maybe eventually, everyone will realise what Roosh has been saying all along. Maybe an apocalypse really is coming in 2012… Where Roosh is the messiah we’ve been waiting for.. Ending society as we know it and invoking a new way of thinking, and allowing society to actually progress into territory, previously restricted by illogical laws and misinformed rules. All I can do is hope, and say viva la revolucion!

    Explain. Why is this going to go over a lot of heads? The author makes his point in a fairly straightforward fashion.

    “I’m diggin’ the analogies.”

    I’m so sick of you beta fan-boys. You point and laugh at people for being “distracted by social media and technology.” What a lame and hypocritical argument. You’re doing exactly that by following this blog, subscribing to Twitter updates, and obsessing over what half the population is or isn’t doing.

    Pfft, programming… go play your Xbox.

  13. Gmac May 7, 2012 at 11:56 am

    Beta fanboy? You’re a funny guy [troll].

    There’s a huge difference between spending time improving yourself while collaborating with and learning from other men… and what women do, which is waste enormous amounts of time being unproductive.

    I’m using social media to build my “brand”, so to speak, whereas women use it solely for attention.

  14. jesse May 7, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    @ roosh

    yeah. i read that. it still begs the question: why are males living against their programming?

    as samseau points out above, females are achieving the nesting function of their programming as well as the communication (just no procreation). that’s 2 out of 3 on your programming list.

    human males, on the other hand, appear to be satisfying neither of the 3 parts of the male programming (adventure, achievement, procreation).

    human males appear an even bigger failure than females. why?

    1. James December 4, 2015 at 1:27 am

      Yes I agree with you. I think it’s because women are in charge since we have the vaginas. So men aren’t “stepping up” because they’re shamed by feminists if they do. So instead they’re compliant in order to meet the most basic and strongest need: connect and procreate.

    Most men aren’t meant to live like Roosh. Few have his wisdom, intelligence and luck and whatever else makes his lifestyle possible. That doesn’t mean you can not learn from him and make your life at least a little better. Knowledge is power to one degree or another, and Roosh has given all of you knowledge or reminded you of it if you learned it yourself. Roosh and others on the net have done as much as anyone can in their position to help men see through the “Matrix” to see that they are being used, abused and discarded for little to no reward and being punished even though they have done little to no wrong just for being Western, American and male.

    The only thing I’d add is that the wasp is getting the queen ant to make the male ants(Average Frustrated Chump) work harder for less today than in the past. You don’t want to be a male ant. You want to be a (Cad-player) wasp. At the very least if failing to be a wasp be a rogue ant(Men Go Their Own Way) as much as possible and stop feeding the system as much as you can. I realize this may not be totally possible, but any way you can starve the system then do so. At minimum, most if not all of you can avoid marriage if you’re single or certainly avoid getting re-married and maybe divorced if you are married.

  20. Black Medici May 7, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    I like the analogy.

    However, it’s basic and is always the nature of things. The lioness just doesn’t give up her conquered prey to the lion, she fights him; he whoops her ass or punks her and she submits. A lot of dudes aren’t fighting and they’re mad that the women aren’t submitting.

    A lot of the power that feminist have is due to men deciding that they’re not going to fight women’s nature. Women’s nature is to constantly challenge men, because we’re their leaders. They’re like the masses, they criticize their politicians, but few of them want to have the responsibility of dealing with what comes in that kind of position.

    A lot of men today, are simply responding to any demands women make, and have created a generation of themselves who are incapable of leading and guiding women towards their salvation, which is submission. I don’t blame women for feminism or any of that other stuff, they don’t know no better, most of these dumb women have never had any guidance or leadership in their entire lives, they’re like chickens with their heads cut off – no direction.

    We all know these feminist don’t want to lead men, especially straight men, what’s attractive about telling a man what to do, and taking responsibility for his security, economics and politics…what would separate us from their children if they had to uplift and protect us? Don’t get mad at the dog who barks loudly whenever someone walks past his home, blame the owner for not teaching that dog how to shut the hell up and act appropriately.

    The Queen’s behavior is merely a symptom. The underlying disorder is that the worker ants decided to prop up the wasp, to the point where he is almost omnipotent and they are impotent; hence he is able to give the queen more than any of them ever could. All of it stolen from them, of course; while they sit around making excuses for why that is somehow more sophistimecated than simply exterminating the thieves the way worker ants are supposed to.

    If the worker ants would just figure that out, and act accordingly, things would sort itself out in no time. It’s not like basic survival and procreation is exactly rocket science.

  24. Anonymous May 7, 2012 at 2:21 pm

    Typically naturalistic fallacy by a pseudo-scientist. We don’t have to live by how nature programmed us to live. Unlike every other animal species, we humans have what’s called free will – we are the only animals with the capacity to fight against our natural drive to achieve greater goods.

    People cling to the cubes because the job and cubes provide comfort and stability. I don’t know where the whole desire for adventure comes from.

    Males want pretty much four things in life.

    Stability, pussy, food and a passion

    As for the adventure….I mean few trips here and there would work for 90% of the population.

    But if you gave a guy some financial stability, a hot wife who fucks him regularly and is loyal, a fridge full of food and finally a noble passion (working on cars, a sport, a hobby etc…). He’d be totally happy and content

  27. Tampa May 7, 2012 at 2:59 pm

    Most guys can get the financial stability, the fridge full of food and find something they are passionate about…..but have a major problem finding a hot LOYAL girl to fuck them on a regular basis.

    “Unlike every other animal species, we humans have what’s called free will – we are the only animals with the capacity to fight against our natural drive to achieve greater goods.”

    We also have the free will to go against that natural program and follow pleasure and distractions to our ultimate detriment. If anything Roosh’s fable illustrates free will in all its ugly truth.

    Anonymous, you are totally wrong here. There are hardly any scientists, philosophers, or psychologists who believe in true free will today. The universe seems to have deterministic AND probabilistic elements, but both are incompatible with free will.

    On a more personal level, try telling a severe crack addict that free will exists.

    There may not be such thing as “true” free will, but you have to admit that our decision making rules are far more complex than any of the other animals. For example, psychologists have settled that unlike other animals, humans are rarely governed by instincts. Are behaviors probabilistic? Yes. Deterministic? No way.

    If you want to return to our “natural” way of behaving, then sell your car and house, shut down your computer, and move to the African savanna so you can hunt lions with your giant axe.

    @ Jesse

    Because civilisation, or this modern society, is built on the female programming. It’s absolutely fundamental for its survival that women have their needs met above everything else, sadly neglecting the men’s. In this modern world, men’s programming is disregarded, considered useless; even threatening to the point that this programming is discourage in young boys who grow up with the toxic idea that they’re intrinsically bad, a shame, that they’ve got something wrong and should go get some therapy. For a civilisation to thrive, its male members must be emasculated and their energy focused into investing in the female programming.

    You’ve got a great critical insight. Good on you…

    Western civilization is still dominated by and created by white men. That hasn’t changed. Women still aren’t creating anything of value and still have no meaningful presence politically or in the corporate world.

    Feminism is strictly a phenomena of the white, college-educated middleclass. And the white middleclass is hardly representative of civilization as a whole, and hardly a driver of it. The white middleclass (as Roosh has pointed out) is essentially a class of office worker slaves, working their entire lives to pay for mortgages and passing material pleasures.

    The oligarchs at the economic and political top, as well as those of the lowest and impoverished class, have no conception of or use for feminism in their lives (both don‘t need white middleclass Game either: whoever has the money and power gets the hoes).

    Feminism and its response, Game, are both canards to keep the white, middleclass cubicle workers arguing social issues on the internet while the ruling oligarchs quietly steal their paychecks through taxes and inflation. Game keeps the men distracted, feminism keeps the women distracted, as wealth is transferred from the middle to upper class.

    The good news is when the white middleclass is finally wiped out so too will feminism.

  41. jesse May 8, 2012 at 7:29 pm

  42. johnno May 8, 2012 at 10:00 pm


    Like the ancient Pyramids in Egypt, this World was built by slaves (Men). In theory, Men should be the ones ruling everything. However, We failed Ourselves giving up our original power to the women (the real rulers) despite, as you pointed out, they being the least producing of value in society. Shame on Us.

    Feminism is envy of the original male power hierarchy without realising that the the true female power hierarchy is totally different. There are no overlaps. It’s in the feminism’s interest not to allow women to know this so minimising the wide influence that feminism has on the western world, in its real scale, works wonders.

    You’re wrong. Those few people in power need the white middle class. Power is exercised by people in a high position over people in a lower one. Without slaves, the master has no power. How did the oligarchs get their money in the first place? How will they try to keep it?

    Who created feminism? Who created Game? The ones above so that we down here have something to talk about? Game is not aimed to just get girls in social settings anymore, as originally intended. Game nowadays is a constantly evolving concept about recovering our lost Masculinity and reclaiming It as our own (the male programming). Yes, there are probably more important current issues like the catastrophic consequence of this failing market economy; widening the gap between the poor and the wealthy. Game probably is not the solution to this, but who knows? May be in the future Game will evolve again once we all are out of a job, giving Us the tools to do what we Men have always been meant to do: Grab a spear, form a gang, and survive in the wild.
