Going Galt: A “Mad as Hell” Men’s Revolution


More than just a caricature of a madman, the character Howard Beale was used to deliver some profound warnings and truths that largely went unheard after the film Network debuted

I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore! That timeless line rang out on silver screens over 40 years ago in the film Network, an Academy Award winning story about a news anchor who loses his mind and starts telling the truth to everyone. He makes a valiant effort to awaken the masses before he is used as a pawn to gain the network high ratings, then is literally killed off by the corporate power structure.

In many ways, I can relate as I’ve done a lesser version of the same thing as the Editor of this publication. I am a former newsman in the mainstream media who saw the evil behind the messaging I was force-feeding to the masses, so I decided to leave that industry at any cost. My mission is to awaken as many men as I can and make them “Mad as Hell” as they should be for what’s being done to them.  I’m doing this with the venture known as The New Modern Man.

My writing could be seen as way of me becoming Howard Beale, minus the insanity. Well, maybe I am a little bit crazy as I know I’m up against forces in the world which regularly create “accidents” and pitfalls for truth tellers. As Waylon Jennings put it, I’ve always been crazy, but it’s kept me from going insane.

The genius of Paddy Chayefsky’s 1976 film is that it resounds 40 years later in 2016. The film was a dire warning about what the end result of generations of mass media brainwashing would be. The first Howard Beale monologue reads like it was written by the modern day manosphere, rather than in 1976.

I don’t have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s a depression. Everybody’s out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel’s worth. Banks are going bust. Shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there’s no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that’s the way it’s supposed to be.

It’s amazing how prescient the preceding part of the monologue was, as we have seen all those things happening in the past decade. What’s more, Ghosting MGTOWs and men Going Galt were foreshadowed.

We know things are bad — worse than bad. They’re crazy. It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don’t go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is: “Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won’t say anything. Just leave us alone.”

Enter the truth tellers who are trying to awaken men to the realities of their coming enslavement before it’s too late!

Well, I’m not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get MAD! I don’t want you to protest. I don’t want you to riot — I don’t want you to write to your congressman, because I wouldn’t know what to tell you to write. I don’t know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you’ve got to get mad.

Indeed, getting mad then acting upon that anger in a positive way changed my life. It has the power to change other men’s lives, too. The mission of this humble outpost, like so many other men’s blogs can be boiled down to this statement – we are encouraging men to collectively say:

I’m a human being, goddammit! My life has value!

What a powerful statement. It’s one men the world over need to realize. We are human beings, goddamit! Our lives have value!


Behold: The sexually ambiguous, tatted up, man-woman that is a product of feminism. Do you want more of this, or less of it?

Men’s Lives Have Value

What a bold and terrifying thing for those who make their living and their fortunes on our backs, and for those who profit from the $50 billion a year frivorce industry. Men, en masse realizing the value of their lives and their labor and choosing to invest them as we see appropriate.

We are not pawns in a gynocentric game, used to power rampant female materialism and consumerism while literally being enslaved by the court system to pay women for the rest of our lives with alimony and divorce settlements. We are not going to allow ourselves to be reduced to mere sperm donors as women claim all rights to the next generation via the force of the government mafia, and we are relegated to enslavement by the child support system.

This is why men should Go Galt until the value of our lives is recognized by women and the system. Our labor and our contributions to society measured in everything from tax dollars to ingenuity go unnoticed and unappreciated by both women and the system, that is, until they’re gone.

Don’t know what you’ve got, until it’s gone.

The price of our participation in the Ponzi scheme known as civilization is that we are afforded meaningful roles in society, and that we’re not treated as utility objects to be used and discarded by women and the State. Also, our sexual needs must be fulfilled, as sex is one of the most basic instincts and requirements of Maslow’s Hierarchy. Relegating men to sexless lives is inhumane.

For many of us, realizing how used and abused men are by a gynocentric society was enough to make us seek out happier and more fulfilling lives in diverse cultures abroad. Others are deciding to go hang out poolside. And many more are still unawakened.

The power of the manosphere will come from it causing action and reaction to the injustices men are dealt on a regular basis in Anglo America and Western Europe. We encourage men to Go Galt if they believe their participation fails a personal cost-benefit analysis. We encourage men to walk off the Anglobitch’s plantation. We encourage men to rediscover minimalism and realize consumerism will never fulfill them with its extrinsic goals. We try to enlighten them to the fact their money and their labor go farther elsewhere in the world than in the ungrateful Anglo American society of today. We encourage them to pursue their own goals and ambitions in life rather than the ones programmed into them by a system designed to exploit them.

This simple treatise is enough to cause an entire men’s revolution is enough souls are awakened by it. The alternative will be to sit idly by while everything that makes life worth living as a man is taken away.

Men don’t whine, bitch and moan and form support groups and play the greivance racket like women. We assess the situation and take action. Which is what Going Galt is all about. Boldly getting up from the poker table and walking out the door once we learn the table is tilted and the game is rigged, and we are only human batteries used to power the excesses and ridiculousness of the game.

Are you mad as hell yet?

Postcards from Paradise: Fuck The Haters

PostcardWhile some bitches sit around posting hate, I write articles here and at Return of Kings, and help men empower themselves through my RF Life Coaching service.

Then, I spend the rest of my time enjoying this lifestyle, while not giving a fuck about the haters. There’s Spanish wine on the beach, sitting by crystal clear and Maui blue waters, and strolls down dirt roads in pristine palm forests just to name a few ways to pass a slow and easy tropical afternoon.

Then there’s the women, who love partying with the joven “gringo loco” and dancing all night long. Yes men, life among the 95% of the world’s population that hasn’t been subjected to feminazism is bliss. The best decision I ever made was leaving socially engineered Anglo America. Check out the music video to see a snapshot of what a typical Saturday night is like down here in Latin America. So, to review:

  • Beaches
  • Booze
  • Bitches
  • Freedom (real freedom, not the deceptive slogan)

Have questions about how you can do the same thing? Want a personalized response from me? Check out my RF Life Coaching service and request either a private email response or an article to be written about your question for only $20.

As much as I love the Caribbean, there’s much more of the world to see. With your support, I’ll be touring the world in the coming years writing articles from abroad as I see just how much life there is to be lived outside the corporate plantation that has become man-hating Anglo America.

Is Marriage Just Legalized Prostitution


The entire concept of marriage has been more about barter than love for at least 5,000 years

My body, my choice! only applies if Anglo women want to kill a preborn baby, neglecting the hypocrisy of the government fining people up to $250,000 for disturbing a Bald Eagle’s egg. However, we often hear a Puritan, pussy pedestalizing Anglo culture screeching and hissing at the idea that women should be able to do whatever they choose with their bodies with regards to heterosexual activity.

Ergo, they are capable of making the decision to end the life of a person who has no voice, but they are not capable of making the decision as to whether or not they want to have sex and get paid for it.

Abortion is just fine for a completely preventable thing like pregnancy, but selling sexual favors is the third rail of discussion. My body, my choice! does not apply if women want to rent out a part of their anatomy by the hour to make some cash, and provide some pleasure for hapless incel Beta, Gamma, and Omega males in society.

These are the incels that have been completely cut off sexually as the sexual jungle shifts female attention away from the bottom 4/5 of men and towards the top 1/5 of men. They are the forgotten men, the men who can no longer provide financial and social incentives to hypergamous women.

She can, however, give away access to her vagina for free to anybody she wishes, especially if that person is another female. In Anglo culture, a culture that has a long history of lionizing gayness, homosexuality is superior to that “antiquated” heterosexuality the social engineers loathe. A woman can also give access to her vagina to a “train” of men, such as the entire football team, and that’s just fine. She can go out and bang several men a night, every night, and no crime has been committed. But, if a man screws her then leaves a Benjamin on the nightstand, an unspeakable crime has been committed. This is the insanity of Anglo culture today.

However, when one thinks about the issue critically, what else is modern day marriage than legalized prostitution? The poor bastard Johnny Depp is being taken to the cleaners for a settlement of up to $20 million for his temporary use of a vagina that belongs to a woman who is at best a 6 or 7 without her paint job of Maybelline.

The advice men are given from a young age – to go to school, work hard, get a “good” i.e. lucrative job, stay out of trouble, and then spend life paying for the adult equivalent of a Barbie Fun House and a couple of cookie cutter sedans or SUVs implies the only value men have to women is financial value and/or their power and status that elevates them over “lesser” men in society.

Therefore, one can reason that relationships and marriages are really nothing more than prostitution by proxy. Women barter for material things and consumer items, and men barter for sex.


The symbolism at weddings helps reveal the reality of marriage

Sexual Barter

Let’s analyze the typical wedding. A bride dresses to the nines in white gown – which is supposed to reflect her virginity at the wedding – and offers herself to a handsome groom in exchange for a diamond ring, a promise of financial stability, and all the other trappings of marriage which today include a McMansion and all sorts of other wasteful material spending. It is not hard to see how this is just a front which hides the real transaction going on when one looks behind the curtain.

The problem is the institution of legalized prostitution (i.e. relationships and marriage) has become so corrupt in modern times they’re not worth entering into for any man who has his thinking cap on. Unless, he enjoys Gaming some chick around the clock and hoping like hell she doesn’t have a mood swing and decide to cash him in for fiduciary prizes as we often see with celebrity frivorces. Even being a top dog, super Alpha actor is not insurance against female betrayal. One housewife interviewed by a mainstream newspaper even confirmed the idea of marriage being legalized prostitution.

To be honest, when I refuse sex my husband doesn’t let go of the money quite as easily as when I comply; and when I’m amorous, I get what I want. In the past he would even leave the money on the dresser after he was finished, but nowadays I’m handed the debit card and he will suggest that I go and buy myself something nice, but only after an extended period of compliance on my part.

In fact, proving that marriage is based on sexual barter, it has become so one-sided since feminism that women command everything from “putting a ring on it” a la Beyoncé to a minimum six figure income and Lexus for a man to be considered marriageable. This behavior shows women want to be compensated in some way for having the Magic Vagina and proves that bartering for sex is still the norm, even in the days of the empowered, Strong Independent Woman™ that Don’t Need a Man™.

They Don’t Need a Man™ because the state provides them with resources stolen from Beta providers via tax theft and hiring quotas kick men out of corporate jobs. Women marry their jobs and the government instead of men in the modern age. In turn, The Hedonic Treadmill spins into overdrive, and suddenly the decent guy who only earns an average salary is persona non grata because the empowered female wants a bigger meal ticket to exploit.

Additionally, as women are drunk on their power over men since being granted all rights and no responsibilities, in the strange world that is developing in the 21st century, some feminists view the very act of sex, and especially selling sex as degrading towards women. Which is strange, especially when juxtaposed alongside the harlots who regularly use their sexuality to sell music videos, concerts, and records, increasingly stooping to degeneracy well beyond the scope of prostitution – songs and videos that discuss such topics as mixing anal and vaginal lube and glorifying sodomy, sexualizing infants, encouraging women to experiment with gayness, and talking down to men as though they’re some sort of provider slaves. These activities are viewed as empowering by feminists. Hmm.

In reality, they’re yet another example of how women trade their sexuality for money in society. Whether for marriage or for selling pop records, women use sex to get what they want.


Whether it is paying for dances or being a Beta bucks husband, you end up paying for play from women one way or the other

Legalized Prostitution and Marriage

One of the main arguments of those who are against prostitution is that it provides a disincentive for men to strap themselves up to the marriage cart like a good pack mule and carry the weight of female materialism and frivolity for the rest of their lives. Why buy the cow when you can get the milk at the low, low price of $100 for happy hour?

This further proves that relationships and marriage are prostitution by proxy. Being honest and legalizing prostitution throws the whole arrangement off. As anthropologist Robert Briffault proved, women do not associate with men unless there is some benefit to be gained by them as a result of that association. Bertrand Russell wrote this statement about marriage, further exposing why women detest marriage today:

Marriage is for women the commonest mode of livelihood, and the total amount of undesired sex endured by women is probably greater in marriage than in prostitution.

Beyond despising the Beta husbands women of millennia past endured, feminists can’t make up their mind over the issue of whether honest and open prostitution should be allowed, or whether it should continue to be cloaked under traditionally accepted avenues of sexual barter. Rational Wiki reveals:

Because prostitution is rarely perceived to be about a woman having control over her body in exchange for money, and more often perceived to be about a woman becoming the property of a pimp, or worse, feminists are often torn on the issue of prostitution. On the one hand, most feminists accept that when a women is able to be in control of choices, it is her right to use her own body as she wishes, as long as the sex is safe, consensual and fair. This view is especially true of so called “sex positive” feminists. Extreme feminists have argued that in most societies and relationships, prostitution is the norm, though it might be “sex for a diamond ring”. In this view, any prostitution reinforces the view of female as property to be bought and sold (meaning this view conveniently ignores male prostitutes).

Many try to muddy the issue, but analyzing the innate female behavior of selling sex that has been a part of our species since it began and trying to judge it with today’s effete attitudes is an approach that doesn’t work. Additionally, the history of marriage has shown us the arrangement has been more about practicalities, i.e. sexual and reproductive barter, than the laughable concept of “love” for at least 5,000 years.

Almost always, across every society that has instituted it worldwide, marriage has been about land and property deals between families, aggrandizing wealth, and creating offspring rather than the silly idea of spending a lifetime chasing a fleeting emotion. Men trade labor and resources for female sex and fertility. That’s just how it works, it’s Economics 101.

I have yet to see a woman who openly wishes to marry down, as hypergamy is as innate a behavior in females as looking for sexy legs, asses, and boobs are for men. The problem today is sexuality has become controlled by sophistry, i.e. the use of clever but false arguments, especially with the intention of deceiving. Much like all the other big lies of our society, people want to believe comforting lies rather than unpleasant truths.

The unpleasant truth is women have evolved to want the Bigger, Better Deal when it comes to giving their precious few years of fertility and youth away. This makes sense, as milk (which represents how women age) curdles relatively quickly, so economics dictate women try to maximize return on investment. The problem comes when society tries to create myths around the virtuousness and superiority of women, when in fact they are no more virtuous than men.

Women’s bargaining chip has always been sex and fertility, no matter how much social engineering leftists try to shoehorn into basic human economics. Prudishness towards recognizing marriage for what it is, sexual barter, shows us some of the fundamental issues Anglo society has in its uncomfortable relationship with sexuality. In many cultures, sex is a thing to be enjoyed, not analyzed to death. But it has always been about female control in Anglo society.

Take it for what its worth, and realize the Game for what it is. A woman will not want you as a man unless she feels there is “something in it for her.” This is true whether a woman is turning tricks for $20 down on the street corner, or looking for $20 million from her discarded husband. Either way, it takes money to ride that twat.

Women React to Men Taking a Stand (Usually with Horror)


Men’s web sites trigger the Independent Thought Alarm

Triggered! When you decide to be a man who does not look for pats on the head by women who see you as nothing but a sex fiend and walking wallet, expect outrage, disgust, screaming, hysterics, insults, and more to be hurled at you. Many women go into meltdown when they realize men are now having juntas of their own and not conforming to feminist hivemind groupthink spun by apparatchiks in the discredited mainstream media and degenerate Anglo culture.

Get ready to be called sexist and all sorts of other “ists” by dint of having an opinion that does not worship the female and for not gleefully turning yourself into a Beta slave as Meghan Trainor tells young men to do in her craptastic song and video Dear Future Husband, in between apparently shoveling handfuls of donuts into her moon pie face. Women think it is sexist when men decide to take care of themselves and form their own opinions about dating, relationships, and marriage ideals.

Whether Red Pill, MGTOW, or MRA it doesn’t matter how we subdivide ourselves, each aspect of the men’s awakening of the 21st century conforms to the same general idea. Men are refusing the cultural conditioning foisted upon them by women, society, corporations, and the government. We are refusing to be obedient boyfriends, obedient husbands, and obedient workers for a system that threw us overboard 50 years ago. It’s a collective and yet independent refusal to conform to the expectations females lay out that have been a part of our species since day one, as described by anthropologist Robert Briffault:

The female, not the male, determines all the conditions of the animal family. Where the female can derive no benefit from association with the male, no such association takes place.

Briffault’s Law is oft-repeated at TNMM because it’s so important. It’s easy to see since men’s provisioning qualities have been supplanted by Big Daddy Government, Government Check Dad, endless Beta Bucks providers desperate for a date, and women in the workforce, women no longer have a “use” for most men which is why many men end up in the discard pile. However, by being discarded, and thereby given time to think and separate ourselves from the programming put into our minds, men are discovering the bondage they have been placed under by women since our species began.


Men are flying the coop and refusing to be objects only used to feed materialism and consumerism

Men’s Lib

Finally, we are having the male version of liberation. Our views make as much sense as feminist views which demonize men for having sexual desire, turn the kitchen into the vortex of hell, and want to oppress men for female material and social status benefits.

In the past, women were able to extract what they wanted from men through manipulating supply and demand for sex. It’s Economics 101. By controlling the supply of sex, women seek to control male behavior. This is also Pavlovian conditioning, since men get sex when we do what women want us to do. (Arguably, that is only the case until a women has control of the relationship or has a man on lockdown through pregnancy or marriage, when the supply of sex is cut off.) But, men are refusing to jump through hoops to get sex, we are learning to short circuit female wiring with Game, then pump and dump, and leave women and all their baggage and demands for male bondage behind.

Controlling the supply of sex is the real reason women are so vehemently against the legalization of prostitution in Anglo America. Not because they have some lofty philosophical notions, but because that would present the single greatest threat to the only lever of control over men they have. It has already been legalized in much of Europe, all of Australia and Latin America. Why isn’t America seeking to copy Europe by legalizing whores as it does in so many other dreamy eyed ways when it discusses Europe’s progress?The issues we discuss go well beyond women using sex to extract resources from men using nature’s credit card. (She never leaves home without it.)

Just as women have juntas regularly on what is expected of men, men are now getting together to discuss what’s best for them. Many men feel it is better to avoid women or only seek sexual gratification with females who only offer the following:

  • Child support
  • Alimony
  • Gossip
  • Superficiality
  • Emotional manipulation
  • Bossiness
  • No kitchen skills
  • Bad attitudes
  • No fun to be around
  • High maintenance costs
  • Wasteful materialism
  • Breakups when male money, status, or power are lost

Rather than turning ourselves into Beta Male slaves for some poon, men are accepting the fact this is just how women operate and not falling into the trap any longer. Spreading this wisdom online is how we save other men from being subjected to this predatory system, set up primarily for female benefit since it doesn’t take much for a man to live on.

Men are also tired of being turned into “problems” for society to solve. No longer will men be embarrassed by our innate behaviors, such as desiring young, fertile females rather than crusty, worn out ones, our desire for autonomy, competition, aggression when needed, and other male qualities. Men are also realizing the concept of love is yet another of many fantasies about life that aren’t true. Love is a fleeting emotion, and for the vast majority of recorded history successful marriages have not been based on love. This is why women waiting for that “perfect someone” end up with a house full of cats. History also shows that male bondage in service of a female master has been the motivating force behind marriage, not love.

Men with the capacity for independent thought and self-ownership are often called every name under the sun by women, but we realize this is just a tactic women use to regain control of the situation. No matter how many tantrums women throw, its up to us to hold steady to our principles, believe that ours is a just cause, throw off the chains of female bondage, and live our own lives the way we see fit. Men should treat sex as a fun sort of recreational activity, but nothing we should sign our lives and freedom away for.

Women do not like it when a creature they see as subservient to them gets out of line or starts misbehaving. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than to see men thumbing their nose at what women want, as women have been thumbing their nose at what men want for 50 years. Expect more wailing and crocodile tears as more men wake up from the cultural Matrix. I won’t be going back to my dog cage anytime soon.

Womaning Up While Men Define Our Own Self-Worth


Womaning up means letting go of the princess fantasy so females can be equal to male worker drones

You need to man up! Many times that statement echoes throughout society as women attempt to define male self worth. Conversely, one would never hear a man telling a woman You need to woman up! in Anglo society, for criticism of the female is verboten. Women are allowed to make demands of men, but men are not allowed to make demands of women. This situation is untenable and it skews the balance of power between the sexes in favor of women. After all, if only one side gets to set the conditions of the game, do you think the game is going to be fair? Of course not!

It has come to the point this is little more than thinly disguised male exploitation. The time has come for men’s liberation. Women had their liberation, now it is time for men to have ours. Men need to be freed of the expectations of women and society, and free to make their own choices with regard to what gives them value as a human being. Feminism needs masculism to counterbalance its influences on society. Otherwise, society will continue on the current runaway train to all rights and privileges but no responsibilities for women, stepping on men every step of the way.

The first step is declaring independence from a misandrist culture. Since working hard and playing by the rules is no longer a ticket to a reliable girlfriend, and eventually wife and family, men no longer have any incentive to play the Beta provider game. Here are just a few reasons why men continuing to support the beast that is the gigantic American government with endless hard work and the forced extraction of their tax money is not a winning proposition:

  • It doesn’t take much for a man to live on; most of the surplus production produced by men in society goes to support wasteful female consumerism.
  • Many men will naturally choose to live in smaller homes and less expensive, freer lives once freed of the need to “impress” females.
  • Men are still subjected to slavery in the United States, a nation that pats itself on the back for supposedly banning the practice in 1865 even though it is still alive and well in the family court system. Men have the option to pay or go to jail after a divorce or relationship ends.
  • Women are allowed to criticize men for such petty offenses as leaving the toilet seat up, but men cannot criticize women for leaving the bathroom is a mess with makeup and other toiletry items.
  • Men are being forced to subsidize bad life decisions by women by funding a large welfare state.

Now that we have seen a few ways men are systematically being mistreated by a gynocentric, socialistic state, let’s talk about a few ways men can avoid being snared into the jaws of this trap like a helpless animal.


Women who are not sexist should cheer men on as they look for the same “equality” women achieved through feminism

Game Plan

Men, dutiful workhorses they have been throughout history, need to stop jumping every time women bark commands at them. More so, men need to revolt against they way they’re being treated in society. Here are some of the steps men can take once they have committed to pursuing freedom rather than validation.

  • Downshift to a life of minimalism, and work only the bear minimum support a lifestyle of freedom. This cuts down on revenue paid into a corrupt tax system, and frees up a man’s life to pursue other interests outside career worship.
  • Drive a beater car or a motorcycle.
  • Live in a low-rent apartment or home.
  • Refuse to pay for dates. A Strong, Independent Woman™ surely Don’t Need a Man™ to pay for dinner.
  • Pursue activities that enrich you as a man. Whatever recreational activities you enjoy, do more of.
  • Limit interaction with women to sexual activity. The days of double standards with government policy on sexual activity between two consenting adults is over. Prostitution must be legalized if other sexual activities are now enshrined by the government, including the sanctification of homosexual marriage even though only 1-2% of the population reports being exclusively homosexual.
  • Use extreme caution when having sex with women. Remember, one sperm with a sense of direction is the equivalent of an 18-year sentence of indentured servitude. Rather than shared parenting, the U.S. gives women all the power over children and all the money when a marriage or relationship ends. Legally, the male becomes little more than a sperm donor. Child support reform is desperately needed.
  • Invest in yourself, building your own fortune and aggrandizing your own power. Once women know you have money or power, expect them to start orbiting you. Do not let them sink their claws into you or get too close, as the risks from long term relationships and marriage outweigh the rewards.

Now that we have looked at a few ways men can change their behavior to suit their own choices and happiness rather than bowing to the demands of women and society, let’s look at a few ways women can help share the burdens of society and help make men happy.


It wouldn’t hurt women to have a little sweeter disposition, like in the olden days when women seemed much happier than they do today

Making Demands of Women

Since women adhere to Briffault’s Law, which shows through an anthropological survey of history women with not associate with a man that does not provide money, status, or power, without those three things a man is going to find himself alone. Rather than continuing as whipping boys who obey orders and break our necks trying to obtain money, status, and power via the consumerism machine, the time has come for men to shift to lives of minimalism. Or, if men continue spending their lives to obtain money status and power to attract the opposite sex, men also need to make demands of women if there is to be an even exchange in the economics of relationships. Here are a few ways women can start:

  • Provide some other value to the relationship other than a career (men don’t give a damn about your career).
  • Provide value other than sex to the relationship.
  • Help with household chores like cooking and cleaning.
  • Really, learn how to cook, as cooking is becoming a lost art in Anglo America (living abroad I can guarantee you women here scoff at the idea of cooking being some terrible form of oppression).
  • Cut back on complaining.
  • Cut back on gossip.
  • Stop trying to keep up with the Joneses, live within your means.
  • Divorce reform: No more cash and prizes in the divorce court for women.
  • End no fault divorce and make it very hard to dissolve marriage, ’til death do you part means ’til death do you part, not ’til I get upset and throw a temper tantrum.

This list is no more “sexist” than the list of demands women regularly make of men, unless one believes women are superior to men and deserve to make demands. These simple suggestions are a start in liberating men from their outdated roles in society. Many other changes need to be made to balance the scales if equality is really the desired outcome.

This writer’s supposition is that feminism was never about equality as much as it was shifting all power to women in Anglo society, and that any attempts such as these to balance the scales will be met with vitriol and hamster wheel spinning. But men hold the cards in the 21st century. Many of us are deciding to enjoy the decline rather than running around with our asses on fire trying to please a wannabe princess.

Why MGTOW is So Important


MGTOW represents men collectively riding off into the sunset, ignoring the demands of women and society and focusing on themselves

Men Going Their Own Way, or MGTOW, is an important group connected with the ongoing male awakening and enlightenment of the early 21st century. It is a men’s movement with an admirable and moral objective, as defined by MGTOW.com:

MGTOW is a statement of self-ownership, where the modern man preserves and protects his own sovereignty above all else. It is the manifestation of one word: “No”. Ejecting silly preconceptions and cultural definitions of what a “man” is. Looking to no one else for social cues. Refusing to bow, serve and kneel for the opportunity to be treated like a disposable utility. And, living according to his own best interests in a world which would rather he didn’t.

As women craved liberation, so do men crave liberation in the 21st century. With the rise of feminism disguised as women’s liberation, women didn’t just walk out the door on traditions and family, they collectively broke the door off its hinges and threw it away. But, they left men behind and told them don’t you dare walk out same door.

Fifty years later men do not enjoy self-ownership, we are for all intents and purposes owned by women and society. Traditionally, for our peaceful participation in society and going along with its schemes, men have been awarded control and decision-making status over women, family and society. This has been loosely defined as a social contract in civilized societies from Greece and Rome to present day Western society. The crucial part of this “social contract” that statists are so fond of referring to, was that for participating in society, being subjected to its legal demands, and supporting it, men received certain incentives. These incentives include:

  • Culturally and legally enforced female monogamy
  • Guaranteed paternity
  • Decision making authority as the head of the household
  • Exclusive sexual access to a wife, i.e. a virgin bride
  • As house-band (husband) culturally and legally enforced obligation for wives to remain in the relationship (i.e. no flightiness or “finding herself”)
  • Culturally and legally enforced responsibility for women to be good mothers
  • As defined in the Christian bible, the responsibility of a woman to respect and obey her husband

In exchange for these accommodations, men were expected to give their lives and their labor for the protection and benefit of their wives, families, and communities. However, since feminism the incentives for men to go along with the deal have been removed, while the demands for men to sacrifice their lives and their labor for the benefit of society have increased. For example:

  • Men are naturally minimalists but we are expected to labor for a waste economy that is 80% fueled by female materialism
  • Women can walk out of marriages at any time and for any reason, but men must bear the financial burden of their decisions in the family court system
  • When divorcing, women are viewed as being destitute by the court system and not the archetypal Strong, Empowered Woman™
  • Feminism and carouseling has made the ideal of a virgin bride laughable
  • As women push men out of the workforce they are destroying male utility value, making them undesirable to women because of Briffault’s Law
  • Women do not respect and obey men, in fact feminism has made this concept laughable

These terms of the social contract and others were altered without asking men if they agreed to the terms. The liberation of women from the terms of the deal outlined above is today taken for granted, but men are still expected to adhere the old terms. This is an untenable situation. This mistreatment of men is what led to Men Going Their Own Way.


Women abandoned their obligations to men, it’s time for men to abandon their obligations to women

Breaking Up with Society and Its Demands

Today, the remaining rights men have are being steadily dwindled down to a choice between Coca-Cola and Pepsi, McDonald’s or Burger King, and Republicrat or Demican. This is why MGTOW is admirable. Men who have no incentives to go along with a social system that has thown them overboard have the option to:

  • Refuse to allow women or society to define male worth
  • Refuse to compete for careers that favor women and feed materialism
  • Opt out of dating
  • Pursue only sexual pleasure from women
  • Take care of only themselves, often downshifting to a minimalistic lifestyle
  • Shun society as a whole (ghosting)

These ideals are the equivalent of writing a breakup letter to society, and the beginning of men pursuing their own goals and happiness in life, without asking permission. Men are deciding to live for themselves, as women have already been doing for 50 years. Many in society are not going to be happy with this decision, but ultimately the people condemning MGTOWs do not have to life a man’s life, he does, and they’re being hypocritical if they believe women have the right to be empowered and men do not.

The shunning society aspect of MGTOW I totally identify with, and I understand why men are acting on the other bullet points, too. I was totally adrift in Anglo America in my 20s and 30s, and found chasing women to be aggravating after a while since I knew the relationship wasn’t going anywhere. First off, I would not allow myself to be taken advantage of by her or the court system. Second, women are not suitable for marriage or family in Anglo America anymore. Third, I got tired of being a clown and the male equivalent of a traveling troupe of entertainers just to spark her interest. Picking women up amounted to a lot of work for a wet hole, and that kind of life was not very fulfilling after a while even though I was successful at it. For this reason, I understand why so many MGTOWs give up on women even though I never could. My best friend tries to quit women but he often regresses back into pump and dumps with them.

I decided being a clown for women so I could get laid just wasn’t good enough, emboldened by the idea of going my own way in life. Since leaving the poisonous culture of Anglo America for more traditional Latin America I can both assure you the culture has a lot to do with the decline of the quality of women, and inform you it was worth leaving, at least for me. In fact, I made this observation on a message board:

This small island I am on has not been infested with the hemlock of feminism yet. In many ways, it reminds me how men and women used to act when I was growing up. Maybe that’s why I love it so much. Things make sense to me here. Comparing and contrasting between here and present day dystopian America makes me violently angry at what has been done to us as a nation and a people.

I decided to say hell no to a game that had so manipulated the odds there was no possibility for me to get anything out of it than exploitation of my labor and my life. But, we are only beginning to realize the power a decision like this brings to men.


Women can still be a fun part of life, but they are side ventures for the MGTOW

Taking the Next Steps

Without the bold message of saying “No!” to women and society MGTOWs preach, I would have never realized the freedom and happiness I have now. Here are some other ways we can apply the wisdom of MGTOWs to society to level the playing field so men are not regularly taken advantage of. If women want to get equality on, let’s not play around, let’s get it on:

  • Custody: Eliminate female preference in the family court system, with either a 50/50 chance of custody in all cases or shared custody and the end of forced wealth transfers i.e. child support
  • Education: Abolish co-ed schooling, adopt single-sex schooling so boys can be turned into strong men rather than weak manlets
  • Employment: Demand women share the responsibilities of society by imposing quotas requiring them to participate in dirty, hazardous, and physically demanding jobs
  • Violence: Violence against men is often depicted as humorous the media, this form of sexism must be ended. Men must be able to file suit for emotional and physical duress in court, just as women enjoy today.

At the end of the day, what MGTOW is ultimately about is male empowerment. It is about the freedom and the power to do whatever we want, female and societal expectations be damned. In other words, women told men they can do whatever the hell they want with women’s lib. Men must do the same to balance the scales, and we must be ruthless about it.

After learning it is not up to women or society to judge my self-worth but it’s up to me, my life changed in ways I never would have imagined. I’m out of debt, I have freedom, I left the corporate plantation to pursue work that is more satisfying but doesn’t make as much money such as running this blog, and I am off the materialism treadmill for the first time ever. I also refused a man-hating culture and defected to a culture that still affords men a role in society.

I never completely gave up on women as I enjoy the physical side of life too much…I mean what is there to live for without sex is my personal philosophy. I just got better with manipulating women instead of being manipulated by them, and better at controlling my emotions with them, as well as knowing when to walk out when the situation is not working to my advantage. As simple as all this sounds, it goes against everything men are conditioned to do by Anglo society. That is why MGTOW will always be important to me. I changed courses and now it’s all about me, which is how a lifetime of experience and misadventures with women taught me to be.

There is nothing wrong with a man living his life as he see fits, free of the impositions and demands ungrateful women and society make on him. For me, MGTOW meant going my own way right on outside the Matrix with a one-way plane ticket into the arms of Latinas.

This brings us back to why the movement is important. The most concise definition of MGTOW is the refusal of male slavery. No longer will we be faceless, nameless drones whose only purpose is being utilities to be used and consumed by women.

It Doesn’t Take Much for a Man to Live On


Wise financial words come from Realtalkers like my best friend’s dad

Genius might be defined as the ability to put a complex idea into simple terms, according to Charles Bukowski. Sage and simple words of wisdom echoed to me back in 2010 from my best friend’s father have stayed with me ever since.

At that time, I was facing bankruptcy after following the system’s advice: Go to college, get a good edumacation, get a J-O-B with an employer who supposedly gave a fuck about me, wife up someone, have a kid, and put your nose to the grindstone for 30-40 years hoping you come out alive, sane, and solvent as you prepare to die.

As luck would have it, things didn’t quite work out that way. It was relatively smooth sailing up until 2008 when the financial crisis hit. After the crash, our gentlemanly old general manager was escorted out the door and a hard ass bean counter was put in his place.

Also around this time, I had a wife and 2-year old kid, after having done the “right” thing, waiting until after college when I had the fabled “good” job to start a family. But, cracks were beginning to appear in this façade.

First of all, as I now realize years later, American women have been stewed and basted in an environment that makes them unfit for marriage. After leaving the U.S. and living abroad, I can safely say that’s not just an assumption, it’s a reality. I still cringe when I hear the cackle of an entitled, “empowered” American woman passing by. More on that another time.

To put a long story short, this fairy tale all came crashing to a halt around the time of the Great Recession.

By 2010, I was happily divorced, woefully financially insolvent, and frighteningly jobless. I challenged authority one too many times and demanded to be paid what a colleague of mine was making for a lower position (yes – I was being paid less than someone underneath me in the hierarchy who was roughly the same age and experience as me.) That was enough to get me sacked.

But none of this is the moral of the story, it’s just background.

Returning home 1,500 miles away from my former employer to lick my wounds, I was having a good, long conversation with my best friend’s dad, who has also been through the divorce and child support meat-grinder, when out came those sage words that are the title of this article.

It doesn’t take much for a man to live on.

Those words stuck with me, and they’re still helping me to this day.


“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” -Confucius


That simple statement helped lead me to a much happier life of minimalism, rather than living the life consumerism I had been chasing my entire life. I began to realize that the more things I had, the more worries I had and the more bills I had.

I also began to realize that as a species of hunter-gatherers, women have a tendency to gather things they do not need, which is what powers the waste machine of consumerism in the Western world. In essence, I had been conditioned to be another gatherer of things rather than living off only what I needed as men have done since the dawn of time.

I’ve gone from having lived the so-called American Dream, to now having an apartment abroad that runs me $200 a month. I eat on $5 a day or less. I get around on a motorcycle that cost me $1,200 and costs $10 for a fill-up. Bus trips cost me about $7-15 even on long-haul destinations. I almost never go shopping and I don’t miss Walmart, the mall, or any of the other churches of consumerism that are ubiquitous in Anglo-America. This all adds up to a cost of living abroad that’s less than a child support payment back in The Matrix even though it offers a comparable material quality of life, and a superior quality of life when it comes to intangibles (women, culture, pace of life, atmosphere, climate, etc.)

I have MAYBE $2,000 of furniture in my apartment. There is no television as I don’t want the mind-rot and consumerism compulsion it sells. I have a laptop, banged up tablet, and a 2012 model cell phone to keep in touch with the outside world. A MiFi runs me about $27 a month.

I’ve gotten used to living without air conditioning. I have a nice fan to keep cool on the hottest of days, but more importantly it blows mosquitoes away when I’m working on my balcony.

And you know what? All this simplicity means I’m happier than I’ve ever been. I would never go back to my old life as a debt slave, running around with my ass on fire all the time trying to find some way to pay for a McMansion in a neighborhood I couldn’t afford.

Which leads me to this conclusion, on which my series of articles on Minimalism will be based: The answer, I believe, for most men, is less, not more.
