After Exactly One Month Back In The States…

I have some questions to ask you patriotic Americans about disturbing things I’ve noticed.

1. Why are the food creations so monstrous?

2. Why are people so big? How come big people don’t have any shame?

3. Why are 50% of men either gay or dressing and acting gay? Is being gay cool now? Why is American culture losing knowledge on how to be a man?

4. Why do straight men in the bar line up to hit on the sloppiest girls wearing Target flip flops? Don’t they know they’re encouraging negative behavior?

5. Why do men well over 30-years-old, with wrinkles and gray hair, dress like hipsters with skinny jeans and Converse shoes?

6. Why can’t people see the hypocrisy of caring about the environment while owning a car and flying in aeroplanes?

The girls are still easy at least.

And the answers are:

1. Ag subsidies that flood the market with an overwhelming amount of corn, soy beans and factory-farmed meat.

2. See above

3. Most upper middle class, college-educated men have been brought up believing that masculine is a perjorative.

4. Game theory. When a guy is trying to get laid that night it is a one-time interaction; he is not thinking about future iterations.

5. Most people experience an extended adolescence.

6. Environmentalism is part-signaling and part new-age, quasi-religion.

ps – yes, they are still easy. any guy who knows how to carry himself, can see through all the pretty lies and knows how close can consistantly bang girls who are a point or two higher than himself on the 10-point scale. Throw in a working knowledge of game and the possibilities are endless.

>>2. Why are people so big?

Girls in Brazil are getting fatter and fatter every year, thanks to American style junk food.
Fast food is too expensive yet for most Colombian girls (temporarily). Yet they are quite fat already compared to European (lots of sugar and high carb food).

>>How come big people don’t have any shame?

fattitude…

>>3. Why are 50% of men either gay or dressing and acting gay?

In Bogotá, as you might know, 99% of young men look gay (emo style)

>>4. flip flops

What about flip flops (chinelos) in Brazil ? smile

>>5. Why do men well over 30-years-old, with wrinkles and gray hair, dress like hipsters with skinny jeans and Converse shoes?

I guess it’s the best look to fuck 20 year old western girls

We live in an enabled culture of overgrown children. People don’t like being told No. They don’t like being obligated. They want everything on their terms, with as little blow-back as is possible for changing plans, or stepping on other people’s toes.

Unless you spend a little time in a more rural area, where people still have responsibilities and callouses.

Most American guys will make a run on any girl that will pay attention to him, no matter how sad, soggy, and spoiled she is. They feed into each others’ failed-star ego trip.

3–yes, flip-flops do have an especially negative connotation on this blog don’t they? In fact, every point on this list has been referenced and complained about numerous times on previous posts.

But there’s no question that America is a crumbling empire at this point. We’ve become so decadent and lazy, we want more for less effort–instant gratification. The internet has given us ADD to the max (I’m not excusing myself from this one). Our political system is broken beyond repair etc. We are screwed.

I also want to say that there’s really no reason to get mad at fat people. You’ll save yourself a lot of grief if you just ignore them. What’s ironic is that in any other country in the world, those same people would probably have starved to death by now.

More sour grapes defenses.

Dude, you can only blame yourself for not making it in America. You had it all: education, job, career, supporting parents, and all the things third-world citizens are willing to risk their lives for on their dangerous journeys to America. By now, you’d have suits, car, nice pad, be in your prime. Women would be flocking to you in hordes without even any silly game tricks. You would only need game to figure out how to lose the excess of girls and focus on the hottest.

But now you have to rationalize your lousy life choices to an audience of Internet kids and sex rejects. They will grow out of it and move on. But you have ruined your life forever.

Roosh hasn’t ruined his life, but he has certainly given up enormous advantages because he was unable to delay gratification and plan for the future, which is typical of those with maturity issues and poor impulse control.
At present, this manifests itself in Roosh’s cynicism and depression, as he has given up control over himself and is a slave to his environment. The only real freedom is financial freedom. It also doesn’t hurt to have the discipline that steady work instills. Waking up in your parent’s basement and masturbating at noontime before heading to Starbucks and posting about how people are fat and some girls wear flip flops at bars, does not exactly constitute a fulfilling life.
This is all dependent on the person – I know people who if they had the level of free time that Roosh has, would be vigorously pursuing hobbies like the piano, modern dance, classic languages, ancient Mesoamerican history, etc.

Also, while possible, it is not that easy to apply to grad school and make 100k in less than 5 years.
You also might take into consideration both the opportunity cost of not working while studying and of spending a huge amount on tuition.

I’m a foreigner, attending a law school in the US. You’re right, America is full of opportunities for those “bright and the slightest bit motivated.” That rules Roosh out. You don’t know him as well as I do :)) He couldn’t even get motivated to sit in the office 9-5 and pretend to be working. I cannot even picture him in a US law school with his simplistic, pseudo intellectual logic.

Americans of both sexes are bred/opting to behave like the opposite sex and dress like shit. Then they feel free to complain about the lack of good men/women and why they haven’t found someone who respects them.

A couple more questions….

1. Why are so many men carrying purses?

2. Why are men carrying babies in papooses as if the baby should suckle the man’s teats? Are these men developing milk-filled teats?

Let’s face it here. You have chosen a lifestyle that is not at all conducive of maintaining a long term relationship in America. You’ve really nothing to offer an American woman. No job. No house. No employment prospects.

Yeah you can bang. It’s not that hard.

Stick to sticking it to poor women in developing countries.

And who wants a typical long term relationship with a mortgage, 9-5 anyway?

You haters make me a little sick. It’s fun to bust balls, but only when you can take some of it back. When you post anonymously it says a lot about your (lack of) character.

“And who wants a typical long term relationship with a mortgage, 9-5 anyway?”

Ahhh, relativism, and existential mental masturbation.

Are you still caught up in the “American Beauty” world view?

Look, you need some perspective. MANY MANY people would be very content with that. A typical long term relationship can be very satisfying, if you invest, and are mature enough to give and take. Also, a 9-5 job is ridiculously easy. I can only dream of working 40 hrs a week. When I was in my early twenties I regularly worked more than twice that. Also, having a mortgage is fantastic. It allows you to live in a home early, instead of saving for decades and then paying in cash. If you are smart, you can often have mortgage payments for less than what it would cost to rent. You just need to pick your area, time, and down payment effectively. Also, you have enormous tax advantages, and most of all – you build equity.

Really, I try to be nice most of the time, but some people just need to be smacked upside the head.

Don’t blindly reject everything that is “conventional” as being vapid. Sure, some things that are common among Americans are odious, but that does not mean everything is.

Oh, and another thing. I bet 1,000,000 that GManifesto is also living in his parents basement somewhere, he just has to live an elaborate fantasy life. I give that to Roosh at least, he is brutally honest.

Some good insights here from various guys.

I guess the hostility toward Roosh is jealousy about his freedom and pleasure, coming from very frustrated, depressed guys who choose to be slaves to the pursuit of ‘security’ and affluent materialism.
When you’re happier with what you have, or what you can get for yourself, you simply don’t care so much what other people are choosing for themselves.

Roosh’s observations about America today (fat people, feminized men, older guys dressing foolishly young, etc) add up to support my suspicion that many Americans are brainwashed by a bombardment of advertising and pop culture, selling you unhealthy beliefs & values so you will crave the products, so they sell a lot and profit greatly.

Many people are fat because they live in a culture constantly telling them that being a gluttonous couch potato is HEAVEN, and because our culture alienates people from having good rapport with their own physicality, through conditioned shame & aversion about natural aspects of the human body, and by being oblivious to your own body thru fixation on other stuff (video games, TV, etc), which makes being fat more tolerable to these people.

Even sitcoms (ie, not just commecials), with their world of foolish, pussy-whipped men, with women on a pedestal, are flattering women viewers, to get top ratings, to sell commercial air time at top price.

America idolizes youth because most pop culture flatters & caters to young people, in order to sell to them. So everyone sees the culture celebrating the glory of youth, without any matching appreciation for the good aspects of being older. So we are not taught to aspire to the values of having (or showing) maturity.

There is a parallel here with our culture’s constant applause for being social and ‘ACTIVE’ (ie, ‘busy’, as if relentless mindless activity is something to be proud of).
By default, our culture gives little value to being introspective, contemplative, solitary, etc.

Also, we are encouraged to be just passive consumers of entertainment. Kids in school show much creative talent and much joy in DOING things, but they quit making music, art, writing stories, etc as they get older, cowed into being ashamed of anything less than impressive, amazing output (as if the only value is results, not the joy of the process). Fewer adults now choose to spend free time playing a musical instrument instead of craving an endless supply of new music made by the pros.
Corporations cannot profit near as much from selling you one guitar as they can selling you an endless collection of new CDs etc. Same goes for painting, writing stories, playing weekend sports, etc.

Being endlessly eager to see the hot new movie and to get the new CD by the latest music star and to see the latest episode of that top rated TV show … is like being a nervous junkie, twitching for the next fix; or like a dog on a leash, being pulled along (or held back) by the collar… Kinda like being obsessed with getting an endless stream of new women…

There is a fine freedom to be found in being indifferent to the allure of many options you have …

West LA–whether someone chooses to work and create for a living, or someone has the benefits of not having to do so, isn’t my concern. But it seems like the original poster and his “fan club” in the comments above have a lot more hostility towards those of us who do work than anything else. The “you’re a sucker if you work 9-5” attitude seems contemptuous to the point of trying to justify doing nothing productive. Fine to live a life of leisure–if you have the amassed wealth to do so, that is–but to crap on those who either don’t have that opportunity or who do and choose to advance themselves? Classless. And that’s the only hostility I see here.

1. Consumer driven economy. People want to feel like they are getting value, and large portions seems like value, so that’s what winds up happening.

2. Because they keep eating these large, unhealthy food portions. Who knows why they don’t feel shame? Maybe they stay away from scales and mirrors…

3. I thought a lot of the American culture has been lost the idea of how to be a man with the whole feminist movement and whatnot.

4. I don’t understand the Target flipflop thing. Girls don’t wear that shit in bars down here.. and one of my friends just told me last night that he just got back from DC and the girls in DC are on point with their shit. Is he lying or is there really an abundance of bitches wearing Target flipflops?

5. Why does anyone wear skinny jeans and Converse shoes. Well, I guess it is 10X worse for someone 30+ to be doing it than for someone who is 17… Yeah, they’re just lame.

6. Do Americans really care about the environment? That’s the actual question, to which the answer is basically, no.

God some of you people are tools.

It is not news that there is a disaffected subsection of the US population that leads a sedentary life.

This has nothing to do with America, and everything to do with individuals who make poor life choices.

I don’t know what sort of people you associate with.

The Americans I know are hard working, independent people, with a variety of interests, particularly sport.

They rock climb, they run the marine corps marathon, they hike, they bike, they lift weights, they practice Krav Maga, go sailing, fishing, pilates, yoga, etc etc. They enjoy foreign languages/cultures, but aren’t so immature to “go native” and spit on their home country because they are unable to understand the complex and fluid nature of modern life.

Roosh, I like your blog but seriously….

The answers to your questions are obvious but it doesn’t seem like you’re looking for answers. You appear to want to give credence to ill thought generalizations fueled by your newfound wanderings.

Yes Americans eat more, are fatter, drive everywhere and blah, blah, blah. So are rich people everywhere! Has it occurred to you that America is an amalgamation of cultures from around the world, therefore the phenomena you cite is more to do with human nature and prosperity than national identity?

I find it odd that you can perceive the lunacy of wannabe Bohemian vacationers who bemoan “the gringo trail” and fellow tourists in favor of their more “authentic experience” because they:

* choose to ride a bus with a higher proportion of locals on it.
* stay in a Hostel
* gush about “off the beaten path” attractions largely because they are devoid of other tourists.

Yet you do not seem to understand your own naive pretentiousness. These same dim-wits (of the American variety) that you chide in your book will rebuke America in the same fashion as you are doing now. It’s annoyingly predictable. Yet given the means and choice they will gravitate toward the same lifestyle they supposedly deride. Do you really think you are different? A perfect example is ex-pat communities in third world countries. They often leave their native country (complaints in hand) in favor of a new “culture”. Before long they find themselves in a gated community watching Satellite TV in their native language bitching about the inefficiencies and oddities of their new country with fellow expats. The reality they will not often admit is that the desire the economic advantage they have in a third world country. This advantage allows them to garner a better lifestyle than they could achieve at home. And soon enough this lifestyle looks strikingly American.

Prosperity is inherently damaging to the environment. Yet environmentalism is the luxury of a well off society. People in Latin American do not refrain from driving due to environmental concerns. They refrain because their standard of living is lower. Have you seen the lifestyle of rich Brazilians, Venezuelans or Argentineans? Do you really think it’s fundamentally different than an American lifestyle i.e. portion sizes, vehicles, environmental impact and dress? My slice of experience tells me it’s predominantly about economics. You’d be better off striking “America” and replacing it with “Rich people”.

I’m not pro or anti-America. I will not produce a laundry list of inferior qualities found in third world countries in its defense. I have travel extensively due to my work and have had the privilege of staying for extended periods in a variety of socio-economic settings. I’m not silly enough to cast aside one of the most interesting, bounteous, innovative and world changing society’s in the world because some trite differences I’ve noticed after an extended vacation in S. America.

1. Natural evolutionary desire to consume as much calories (particularly fat and sugar) as possible.

2. See above, plus American sedentary culture. I think big people have a tremendous amount of shame. Despite the numbers, where do you ever see them in large numbers other than prole places like Wal-Mart? Keep in mind that Brazil is not immune from these trends.

3. The United States values self-expression whereas Latin America is somewhat more survivalist in its culture. The survival mentality in Latin America forces its men to be more macho whereas American men have the luxury to be able to dabble in femininity.

4. Most American men are fundamentally insecure when it comes to dealing with women. A typical American man will see a beautiful woman wearing a nice dress and heals as so out of his league that it not even worth approaching her. The girl in flip-flops is much more accessible to them.

5. Men dress to what they think will give them results with women, young women in particular. If that makes everyone think they look ridiculous, so be it.

6. I�m not an environmentalist, so this doesn�t really bother me. But when principle collides with practical reality, practical reality almost always wins out.

First off, if all these people hate Roosh’s blog and what he’s doing, why are they here reading in the first place. It’s like some sort of sick love/hate obsession. Anyway…

1) Because that’s what people want. They know their market and they give them what they want.

2) Good question. It’s just the culture, but keep in mind that varies. You won’t see as many big people on the west coast.

3) MTV, Perez Hilton, Brokeback Mountain, Queer Eye, etc etc. I think it’s all a media ploy to make gay into something cool in order to hasten the acceptance of gay marriage. That’s just my theory.

4)I do the same if she were bangable and I thought I had a chance.

5)We live in a youth driven culture.

6)People care about the environment but only up to a point. And that point is modifying their own lifestyle of comfort and convenience. So they might recycle, but they ain’t riding a bike to work. Air travel is bad for the environment, but luckily that only constitutes 4% of all greenhouse gas being put in the air. Most of it is from cars and industry.

I agree with AlphaXalpha.

I interned in Roosh’s home, DC, with people who were savvy, have traveled the world, have interests, have done cool things and possessed interesting insights into their country’s policies and inner workings. Cool, fit and motivated girls that didn’t mind having fun without having to go through the bar bs.

But DC had a lot of clueless ghetto types as well. So, it all depends who you choose to hang out with. If you see the world through the prism of bar/club hoes and favela windows… I’d be depressed too.

Maybe I misread a long-time ongoing dialog between Roosh & readers (I am rather new here).
I was puzzled that readers see Roosh as “whining” when I didn’t see that in today’s post.
Guess I missed past posts when Roosh expressed contempt for guys working 9 to 5.

Your point is well made and well taken.

It goes along with my point about feeling no inclination to put down other people’s choices when you are happy enough doing your own choices
(as long as those other people didn’t sneer at you for choosing a different life then they chose).

XAlphaX, I appreciate the schooling. I may not be at a point in my life where I want a house or a 9-5, but I’m sure there are lots of people who find great pleasure and fulfillment in such things.

I’m not saying world travel and bashing America is the answer, it’s not. In fact, after a while of bouncing from spot to spot in Brazil, I found that I missed living somewhere more predictable, where I could build on relationships and feel less hurried. It’s about finding what keeps you sane and happy without hurting people unnecessarily in the process, in my humble opinion.
