MGTOW Ghosting: A Way to Go Galt
Whenever I return home to the East Coast of the United States for a short visit, if there’s one overarching theme that describes the entire event it’s the complete and total lack of desire to participate in society in a meaningful way. It’s really a sad place to me, compared to the warm and fun Latin culture I now live in.
Whether it was watching people walking around like zombies, going from a fix of crappy fast food and coffee milkshakes, Made in China shopping/competitive consumption at Walmart, or accidentally wandering into a white girl strip club and thinking just how piss poor the quality of American women is, there are just no incentives for male participation in this sexless clusterfuck anymore.
Juxtaposing Latin America alongside Anglo America is jarring, to say the least when a man jumps from one culture to the other. In one culture I feel totally invisible and worthless, and women treat me that way even though I am an attractive, well-traveled and cultured and successful man. In the other culture I am somewhat of a rock star wherever I go, and women treat me well. Guess which society I want to invest my time and energy into?
But, expatriation is not for everyone. Some people want to stay in Anglo America. For them, Going Galt or MGTOW Ghosting is the preferred means of removing the benefit of their participation from a society that at best doesn’t care about them, and at worst completely exploits them. Going Galt and MGTOW ghosting are related. While I don’t particularly identify as a MGTOW since I get more ass than a toilet seat, and could never give up women, I do think there is a lot of overlap in MGTOW ideology and the rest of the manosphere and I respect it.
How to Ghost
There are several ways men can ghost. There are varying opinions on how to Ghost. Here are some of the more pragmatic ones.
Live on your own. Don’t let women into your life in any meaningful way as most of them are financial predators. Learn the tenets of Game, and practice them well. Bang chicks, but never invest yourself in them or their problems. Know women can “smell” money and resources, and always keep them at arms length before they can financially rape you either through marriage, making you her baby daddy i.e. slave for an unwanted pregnancy, etc.
Live minimalistically. Live on the cheap and have a variety of cheap hobbies you enjoy. In my best friend’s case, he built a tiny home for around $15,000 and lives in it even though he earns about $50,000 a year and has no consumer debt. He has hobbies he enjoys, like fixing up classic cars – something he couldn’t do when he had a bitch around because, of course, she wanted to control him and his money.
Get a job that suits you, and work as little as possible. As marketing guru Clotaire Rapaille says, most of the time people have no idea WHY they’re doing what they’re doing. This observation applies to men working themselves too hard and consuming too much because they’re socially conditioned to do so. Your goal as a Ghost should be to get and stay out of debt and cut your expenses in such a way that you can work only enough to support yourself while enjoying the rest of your time living a lifestyle of freedom. This blog – particularly the Minimalism and Money section is here to help you learn how to do just that.
Stay mentally and physically healthy. By not participating in the follies of HR and estrogen-rich office spaces as much as possible, your mind will begin to cleanse itself of toxic and sarcastic Anglo culture and petty office politics. Just the realization I didn’t have to put up with a bunch of assholes every day once I started Going Galt and doing whatever the fuck I want to do was enough to take my bouts of depression and anxiety away. Exercise and eat right – track what you eat with MyFitnessPal or a similar app as a healthy body and fit physique is 70% diet and only 30% exercise.
Most important: Do things that make you happy and fuck what everyone else thinks about your life. Nobody is going to understand you and everyone you tell about your plan is going to try and discourage you from realizing it. Remember, most of these people are hopelessly dependent on the myths and fantasies of a system that exploits them. For that reason, don’t go approval-seeking as it’s not only Beta behavior it’s also going to destroy your Ghosting journey before it begins. I am quite possibly the happiest motherfucker I know and it’s only because I haven’t turned myself into a slave to consumption and a slave to pussy and a slave on the Anglobitch plantation that I feel this way.
In short, I totally understand why men want to abandon modern day culture in Anglo America and much of the West. It only offers a lifestyle of working and consuming until you drop dead, in an economic and cultural scheme that benefits females far more than it benefits males.
I encourage men to either Go Galt or MGTOW Ghost as a way of regaining control over their lives and their freedom. Male participation, cooperation, and utility have been taken for granted for much too long.
