Hey, ROB, take a break. You don't have to be a smug prick every day of you life, you know. So what if someone (esp a lot younger than you) wants to believe in self-help books? Their money, their choice...

In other news, my new publication titled "13 guidelines for a more optimal existence" is available on amazon. Order now and get a free questionnaire!


Does it hold my hand as I work up the courage to... you know... talk to a girl?


I'd make a book that came with a secret pill dispenser.

But imagine how poorly a book would sell that gave a "Secret" to success with women as "treat them decently, have conversations with them about topics you both are interested in, try to learn something from her about topics you are not interested in. Don't use terms like "Flaphammered" to her or your friends when discussing your budding relationship" Sales = $0.00

Or.

Write a book about how women want to be treated like shit and there are special methods, keywords and subtle touches that can get you laid. Sales = $ OMFG.00 !!!!!!!! who buys this shit, woo hoo! I am an awesome alpha male!

It does. Metaphorically speaking ;-)

Skimmed some of his vids.
He struck me as more of an "identity" spokesperson rather than a pick up artist. Same type of douchebaggery preying on the same insecurities so it all makes sense.

Like most academics, he knows a lot about a little, but thinks that means he knows a lot about a lot cos he's just so much goddamned smarter than everyone else. I find his type tedious as fuck. His stuff on his specialty is good. His stuff outside of that is cringe on steroids.

My real issue though is with the men who are so emotionally crippled that they hold him up as some type of messiah. They're sad cos some Twitter feminist called them a name.

I haven't read too much Jordan Peterson. The problem with trying to make an objective criticism is that no one is objective, everyones got a point of view.

Perhaps what gets missed is that many, perhaps most people have an innate desire to reengineer everyone else in their own image.


Couldn’t have said it better, this is the new age of social media herd mentality shaming. The golden age of actual independent thought, and even ‘thinking’ in general is extinct.

Don’t worry, the new world won’t be paying any academic snob’s bills. Looks like we all gotta get our hands dirty.

Meh, it just seems like opinionated assholes are able to share their thoughts/product to more folks by new means IMO.

Actual independent thought is cool and all but let's face it, there is also a lot of plain hateful stuff mixed in there.
I call some people friends who are self-proclaimed (definitely by modern or USA standards) racists and am too old to have grown up PC. In the end we have to agree that there are a whole bunch of white/Caucasian straight male assholes out there and that getting rid of muslims/coloured people/uppity women/all politicians wouldn't really solve any of the problems but it's at best kinda reassuring to think it would.
That is before you add in pleasant exotic chicks and/or white bad bitches, ideology means sh!t, all that alpha male bullcrock dissolves in the reality of sexual tension and whilst women might not rule the world yet, they sure still do decide who is going to get any.
Same as it ever was I guess...

But the news, youtube vids or self-help books do not write themselves ;-)

You can't really blame people for wanting to find easy solutions/responses and most social media are bound to be about self promotion. This seems like a circle keeping itself afloat on insecurity, disposable income and greed.

Alprazolam felt very dissociative to me. Probably because of illicit use I found it counter-intuitive to having honest and deep emotions/thoughts towards others, none of that barrier braking stuff I experienced wit shrooms or mdma. Nice pause switch/comfy blanket in the brain kinda thing but it also flattens you out.

I dunno. Get off Twitter. Go to the gym.

True of course but harder to understand for a kid that grew up with a smartphone.
If people were smart or common sense was common, media, motivational speakers and half the medical professionals would be out of business.

I am actually surprised we haven't seen a few "incels" on this board.

Informally, half probably are, but I am talking about the ones who formally identify that way.
