How involved should a man get with politics? Should he become an activist who is eternally politically aware or should he forget about politics entirely? In this podcast, I explain both the benefits and costs of getting involved with politics and how my inclusion on a “hate list” in 2012 caused me to dedicate much of my life to the political, with little to show for it in the end. I describe the threat of social justice to a heterosexual man’s existence and what I believe is the ideal strategy for balancing a well-lived life with avoiding oppression. I also share my rules of engagement for when there is no other option but to fight back.

    Dealing with fellow men is politics in microcosm.

  2. John Freeman December 21, 2016 at 11:54 pm

    Isn’t it interesting how politically threatening it is to teach men how to hack into women’s vaginas? The whole world was built by stringing betas along with the promise of poon.

      anything that makes a woman feeel bad or uncomfortable is now the new rule of law for example

      youtuber gets kicked out of plane cuz some dumb old american lady heard him not speak english on the phone then to his buddy. Bitch youre on a plane not everyone is gonna speak your language, instead of getting triggered get poly-lingual like most people on earth.

      this is just like when roosh went to the bar wearing a “make america great again hat” and some chick felt uncomfortable and got him kicked out by the bouncer

      or when roosh was in denmark, anything a guy says thats offensive is really offensive(jante law) but danish women can call russian women whores with no social policing whatsoever.

      both scenarios, none of thier business and literally use their feelings to surpess your free speech…..even if it can be described as racist sexist and bigoted.

      1. pepini December 22, 2016 at 7:25 am

        Roosh will soon be forbidden to ride a plane in western world. This idiot is literally digging he´s own grave. Since even if your not a muslim. You sure look like one. And your enjoying it. Your literally pushing forward your own extermination. Stop thinking your white. You act like those white kids pretending to be black.

        There´s no invasion cunt. The europeans invited the muslims. Stupid Merkel opened the gates. If I leave my door open. He´s the person which enters the one to blame.

        Where are the tanks? The fighter jets? Sorry to burst you bubble. Look into history. It´s not the first time the jews pull something like this. They did it to the portuguese and spanish.

        Stop pretending you care about this politics. Your writing about this because you ran out of topic in the international game. That you wrote for real. This politics since the beginning felt FAKE. And you quit pretending. But you love the attention. Right? Attention whore. Not only this you´ve turned your forum into a sect. With sheep. When before it was a place for open and free debate. It´s sad seeing something beautiful being destroyed.

        You became an hostage of your own readers. And you don´t want to loose them. It´s not the old members who make the forum what it is. It´s the new blood. The new members.

        Your becoming a poseur. Stop the attention whoring and the drama. Sensitive flower.

        I knew the happy hour was a mistake. But your attention whoring couldn´t let it pass.

        You think banning will take away peoples right to expression. It´s funny how you banned members but you keep their posts. How is it hypocrite cunt. Dumb bitch.

        There was a lot of value in this.

      2. Roosh December 22, 2016 at 11:22 am

        Why do you care if I’m banned from riding on airplanes? Either my ideas are valid or not. How I’m persecuted is irrelevant.

      3. pepini December 23, 2016 at 4:38 pm

        I only have one enemy: communism. All the rest are shadows or ghosts. A good communist is a dead communist. I do not care for the useful idiots. I´m anti-communist. Arabs and muslims are no threat. This migrant crisis can be terminated in 3-6 months. It´s 100% fabricated. You saw Tropa de Elite. Your still in 1. It´s time to pass to 2.

      4. White Prowler January 1, 2017 at 10:16 am

        Wrong Pepini, your enemy is me, because I stand for the truth.

      5. pepini January 15, 2017 at 6:56 pm

        You didn´t get it when you read the bible. Your life is not estoic. You´re full of hedonism. And this pure hedonism eats you inside. Sooner or later. All this talk about cutting people who are holding you back, etc, etc. It´s all BULLSHIT.

        Hey I posted this because I read about some Trotsky Aka Bronstein who did something like you are doing now. Fanatical cunts. I haven´t been to this site for a while. Came just to post this.

      6. pepini February 6, 2017 at 8:19 pm

        It was Stalin. I´m seeing a documentary in television. Stalin killed his entire family.

      7. White Prowler January 1, 2017 at 10:14 am

        Stop pretending to be an indispensable man when you are a useful idiot faggot.

      8. pepini January 15, 2017 at 5:15 pm

        Who is this cunt? I´ve been reading this site for way to long to let this shit slide. You´re a naked emperor. And I´m about to tell you your wearing no clothes. So SHUT THE FUCK UP WITH THE DIVA ARROGANCE AND GET DOWN TO EARTH.

        First you have middle eastern ancestry. Therefore you are a target. It´s ok if you want to create an arab holocaust. It´s fine if you want to die in an arab concentration camp. But your actions are not only related to you. Your family for once will hurt from your actions. Which you have no idea to the consequences. The elite is smarter than you. You believe by pressing a you will get b? Maybe. But b will create c which will lead you to the exact opposite. Do you want arabs or arab descendents to be segregated? This means your brother and sister to be expelled from the US. Or segregated to another school. Change arabs to jews. And you´ll get the picture. It doesn´t matter if they are christians. They look arab. Just like you. Now the czech president is saying to shoot terrorists. It´s not terrorists it´s arabs. And you my friend sure look like one.
        Your not being persecuted for your ideas. Your literally deffending the right to people to kill you and anyone who looks like you. I believe you want to be in the cool kids club. You seem like a girl who will sleep with the jock just to be accepted.

        Now let´s get to the problem. The problem isn´t arabs. Arabs and other people are free to live as they choose. I agree with many things islam preaches. BUT they are extremists. Jut like you are becoming. What you should is point out solutions. Not beat on the miserables. All this crisis was created by Soros et all. And what you need is get to the bottom of this. The problem isn´t arabs flooding europe. IT`S WHY THEY ARE COMING AND HOW TO STOP IT. And you can put the walls you want. Just like in the past they have some use. But can´t stop the migration. The arab countries torn by war. Should be reconstrtucted. This was a way for the elite create conflict around Russia. ANd weaken it. Also to buy up the natural resources. Rinse and repeat. The enemy is communism. The invisible hand is not invisible. It´s the jew hand.

        I wrote this post because I read something about a communist who betrayed his own family. I think it was Trotsky. Or Bronstein. And it reminded me of you. Snap out of it. And get back to earth.
        This is not about ideological purity. It´s about what works. What makes people happy. How families can live in peace and prosperity. And it´s capitalism, liberalism in economy and conservatism in manners which gave the best system known to man.

      9. pepini January 15, 2017 at 7:01 pm

        My friend I am a nobody. And I´m pleased to be one. The number of people I can influence is close to 10. Not even this much I believe. Roosh decided to go down this road. What he writes nowadays has an impact he don´t fully gather or understands. Sometimes he reminds me of the geeks of the Silicon Valley. Who think they are above reality or law. Like UBER, etc. UBER thought they could hire people. And not give them a working contract. Soon they realized there is a rule of law. And Roosh is getting too big not to go unnoticed. The first flash of reality happened with the meetings. And more will follow. Mark my words. Sadly and irresponsible so. He had no need to become a sellout political whore.

    2. Roosh December 22, 2016 at 11:21 am

      Game is subversive to the current neoliberal order because it shows men firsthand how men and women aren’t equal. I can do more damage to the establishment by writing about game than politics.

      1. John Freeman December 22, 2016 at 11:26 am

        I think that’s an important factor for sure, but it’s also that it removes the ‘carrot and stick’ used to lure beta males into devoting their whole lives to service to other people.

        The guys who built the Hoover Dam were just living for the paychecks so they could go get laid with a hooker in Vegas, or so they could marry that purty young thing back home. The idea that some dirtbag who makes no contribution to society can just throw down some smooth lines and get the same quality of poon as the construction foreman, or even the company owner – well we just can’t let that knowledge escape. We’d be facing a beta revolt that would leave the Western world in ruins.

      2. John Freeman December 22, 2016 at 11:33 am

        The illusion that this society is a meritocracy must be preserved at all costs (even though it’s the most vicious lie ever told). Most men believe that women are their reward for being selfless.

      3. White Prowler January 1, 2017 at 10:24 am

        This idea that the good men get better pussy than the bad men takes not into account that jerk boys get just as much or more pussy as betas with money, so they have to try to punish men for getting pussy at all. The results are that now men are having less sex, even the alphas to some extent, but at the same time the men who are getting the bigger piece of the pie are more so than ever the alphas and less the betas. So the pie is shrinking but at the same time a larger portion than before has been taken from a larger percentage of men

        You have sold your soul to white supremacists who hate you.

    Finally got around to listening last night. Good interview.

    Trump has been fight back against the mainstream media, but its interesting how so many of the MSM figures are Jewish and have nothing nice to say about him. Even right wing Jews despise Trump, makes you wonder, because even the conservative ones believe in a different set of rules for gentiles, and they all support the idea of open borders and forced multiculturalism. Its fascinating how so many of them are vouching for “refugees” from Middle Eastern countries, when these same people support wars and political turmoil that turn millions of these people into refugees. Large scale migration of refugees have been at a fever pitch the last few years. Its hitting Europe the hardest, and Europe has had large scale Muslim immigration for decades. Germany’s Muslim population today is almost as large as France’s, they have also made it easier for immigrants to gain citizenship.
    Europe’s elites still are firmly in power, it remains to be seen if anything will change.
    And Trump himself seems to bear no malice towards Jews, even views himself as strongly pro-Israel. He is going as far as to build a US Embassy in Jerusalem. Despite this the vast majority of Jews in the US despise Trump. Makes you wonder, if you are not totally with them, you are considered an enemy. Maybe that has something to do with his pro Putin and Russia sentiments.

    America has had 40 years of Neoliberal politics at the top, it finally ended on January 20, 2017. The past 40 years has seen the destruction of America’s industries, the decline of of its middle class, the increasing polarization between the richest and poorest Americans, and porous borders that have compromised the integrity of the United States.
    Neoliberal policies only benefit at most the upper 20 percent of the population, while the bottom 80 percent does worse or the same, they never gain when the economy “grows”.
    Neoliberals have increased the surveillance state, made the justice system unfair to minorities and people who do not have the financial ability to pay for legal counsel, sent jobs overseas, and generally made the average American a zombie. Yet the same neoliberals call Trump’s brand of political policy, neo-Fascism. Fascism is about excluding a group of people for the benefit of the few, so in reality these people do not know what they are talking about Neoliberalism is a form of fascism.
