Red Pill Money: Buying a Mutual Fund


Once your investments build up and women realize you have money, expect them to start coming out of the woodwork – don’t let them in your wallet

One of the best strategies for investing when trying to balance growth and security is buying mutual funds. Mutual funds are typically safer investments than individual stocks because your money is diversified, with the fund professionally managed and invested in several companies rather than just one. This reduces risk of losing money should one company take a dump.

There are good mutual funds and there are bad mutual funds. How do you pick the best mutual fund? Here are five important things to consider before purchasing them.

Objective. Are you looking for aggressive growth? Are you willing to take risks? Or do you need something safer that grows less quickly? Or, perhaps you are looking to have a steady stream of income off an investment that’s already matured. There are funds for everyone. One of the best things to do is visit the web site of Fidelity or T. Rowe Price or another company, then study and sort through all their investments until you find a mutual fund that’s right for you.

It’s easy to find mutual funds with long track records (5 to 10 years) that have returned 10% or higher. Many companies also allow you to see how the money invested 10 years ago would have grown with their company. Fidelity has a nice graph that shows the historical growth of a $10,000 investment. Of course, as the advertisements say past performance does not guarantee future returns, but you can be confident that if a fund has shown growth over a long period of time it will be a relatively safe investment. Once invested, don’t go to sleep. Continue monitoring your investment and don’t be afraid to cash out and put your money elsewhere if the investment isn’t meeting expectations.

Performance. This is the rate of return for a mutual fund. Focus on how the fund has been performing over the last 10 years. You typically want a fund with a strong (10% or higher) rate of return when trying to grow your money. When looking for steady income from your investment rather than growth, know there are mutual funds designed for income. Sifting through and studying the mutual funds on each investment company’s web site can help you familiarize yourself with how the different funds are structured.

Cost. Front-end loads are best as they allow you to pay costs up front rather than paying once you cash out. A front-end load allows your money to grow and your investment not to be bogged down by expensive management fees. And, there are no unpleasant surprises when you go to cash out.

Turnover ratio. This shows you how often the mutual fund changes investments. A turnover rate of 50% or less means the people managing the fund have confidence in where the money is being invested, and aren’t trying to “time the market” or gamble with investors’ money.

Fund manager experience. Typically, you’ll want a fund manager with at least 5 to 10 years experience. This isn’t as important if the mutual fund you are considering has a long track record.


Money buys freedom and investments buy “free” money

More Advice

Another tip includes knowing you can’t put your money in then take it back out quickly. Most mutual funds will have costly fees for taking your money out before a certain window of time has passed – often at least 30 days. Sometimes more. Most mutual funds also have a minimum investment of $2,500 or so. Don’t invest until you are completely out of debt, and can confidently maintain the habits a debt free man. Never go in debt for a car. If you have already gone in debt for a car, pay it off as quickly as possible or sell it.

Have a comfy emergency fund built up and your finances under control or your may end up needing your money rather than being able to invest it. Go into mutual fund investing with the idea of saving at least half your income. Designing a zero based budget and simplifying your finances can help you realize this goal.

Once you have made the initial investment, you can also have a debit set up to put money into the mutual fund each month automatically. Buy more than one mutual fund. Remember the old saying: Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. It’s a good idea to have several mutual funds as this will help minimize risk further.

Another tip is to buy when the market is low if possible. Additionally, don’t let the typical ups and downs of the market scare you into taking your money out. Think long-term with your money, not short term. Sure, your investment might have lost a good portion of its value after a stock market dive, but with long-term thinking that’s the time to buy even more mutual funds rather than cashing out.

The most important aspect of Red Pill money is developing the mentality of a saver rather than a spender. Our society teaches us from a very young age the only way to measure success is with the number of material things we have and the potential of acquiring infinitely more material things. This is totally wrong. Personally, I had a lot of things including a massive apartment and two brand new cars and a lot of other junk when I was younger, but I was miserable because I was in debt up to my eyeballs. There is nothing like the feeling of being in control of your money.

This means being happy with less. Paradoxically, being happy with less will allow you to have much, much more. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: It doesn’t take much for a man to live on. Buying mutual funds while living a life of minimalism is a sure sign of a man who has figured out the game of money.

The Never-Ending Female Shit Test


Whether stress or money, there are significant and continuing costs when dealing with women

Shit tests are never-ending tests women put men through to see if they’re worthy of a visit to the love cave. Women toss out hoops for men to jump through from the time they meet them, as a way of measuring men’s “worthiness” as love interests. An Alpha finds a way of not jumping through the hoops and tosses of his own hoops right back at her. A Beta begins a tragic, never-ending loop of jumping through shit test hoops, with the difficulty of each test progressing until his resources have been consumed by a predatory female and at long last, he has no way of jumping through her hoops anymore and he is placed into the discard pile.

Many young men today are indoctrinated by an anti-male education system to turn themselves into walking wallets and doormats for women, not understanding this is exactly the reason why most women want absolutely nothing to do with them in their teens and 20s. As they become jaded and bitter towards their mistreatment by women, often used for drinks and dinner with nothing to reward them, many turn into MGTOWs or Red Pill men. Some say these men become misogynistic the truth is they become realists about male and female relationships. Red Pill author H.L. Mencken deflects this argument in his 1918 book In Defense of Women:

Misogynist: A man who hates women as much as women hate one another.

Once a man has entered a relationship with a woman in a submissive (i.e. Beta) role, her psychological taunting and tormenting continue throughout the relationship. Evolutionarily speaking, women do this as a way of seeing if a man’s resource provisioning is on par with what she wants it to be, in other words to see if he has resources at his disposal which she can command at will. Secondly, she does it as a way of seeing if he can still attract other women with his resources. Women will shit test an Alpha to see if he stands up to her and if he is still dominant. Either way, a man can expect shit tests from women. They’re built in to every woman’s psychology.

Shit tests often come in the form of ultimatums or demands for material and or consumer purchases. The common wisdom here at TNMM is that if you are dealing with women, you will pay for the sexual interaction one way or the other, whether through playing unending psychological games as an Alpha or Sigma, buying her shit as a Beta, or renting by the hour in jurisdictions where prostitution messes up the effectiveness of marriage scam. Additionally, women will also stir up shit between men so see which one in the group comes out on top as a way of shit testing to find the Alpha.

After learning this many men realize, yes, there’s a reason the Bible warns men about women from cover to cover. This Bronze Age document in many ways is vastly superior to today’s advice from educated fools pushing liberal talking points about the supposed superior virtue of women.

Unfortunately, shit tests are never-ending, which leaves men with the following options.


Learning to dodge hoops, jump through them or avoid them all together sums up female interaction

Be Her Clown or Be the MGTOW

There are many positive things to be said about learning and practicing Game. It teaches men to avoid hoop jumping, and encourages them to make women jump through hoops instead. However, for a rational personality this means an unending and ridiculous cycle of mind games with women just to get sexual access and getting a woman to pretend to love you. Arguably, Game can be repeated until it becomes rote memorized in the mind of the average man. For others, it will be a constant psychological burden.

The difference between adapting to play women’s games or saying to hell with games is the difference we see in the manosphere between the Gamers and the MGTOWs. As a man ages and gains experience with women, he may decide keeping one around is not worth the cost – whether it be financial or psychological cost, or both. German metal artist Unhelig puts it this way in a great song: I’m no longer your clown.

Until laws change and men are given equal standing in society and Betas aren’t enslaved by male-hating laws, men should avoid financial and legal entanglements with predatory females. A commenter on the Reddit MGTOW forum gives us the play by play:

THINK ABOUT THE FOLLOWING: Are we, as men, actively seeking out women for any ulterior motive, other than simple, natural, biological, sexual attraction? No, our intentions are pure. Then why shouldn’t the same rules apply to women, once they are prepared to grow up, and give up on the idea that sex should be used a weapon used to hold men hostage with, in order to get their long list of demands met? I’m not a fucking donkey you lure with a carrot and a stick.

Shit testing is how women use the weapon of sex to get men to start jumping through hoops. Whether Gaming and pumping and dumping or becoming MGTOW or making all interaction with women strictly pay for play in nature, the best thing men can do is stay out of the tangled web women have weaved in society in which having relationships and getting married amounts to nothing more than playing a very sophisticated game of prostitution. The fact more people don’t see modern marriage as just that – a form of legalized prostitution – shows us how far down the primrose path of female supremacy Anglo society has wandered. Once again, H.L. Mencken gives men sage advice:

Bachelors know more about women than married men; if they didn’t they’d be married too… Love is the delusion that one woman differs from another.

In any case, men should see shit tests for what they are, and realize than when entering a relationship with women, they’re entering into a never-ending cycle of mental manipulation and torment. Does the cost-benefit analysis work out? Rest assured if you as a man aren’t running the analysis, the woman you’re talking to definitely is. And she will shit test every step of the way to probe just how much her investment in you is worth.

Should Men Sue for Dating Expenses and Hookup Lies?

You are so beautiful to me!

Are women entitled to free meals, free vacations, and other forms of cash and prizes for agreeing to spend time with men?

Taking a page out of the feminist playbook and performing a long overdue role reversal, a Russian man is suing his ex-girlfriend for the expenses he incurred while dating her. Due to the inherent misandry and anti-male disposition of Western culture, which could spark a backlash, the attorney/ex-boyfriend wishes to remain anonymous but he did tell an interviewer:

She can’t prove that we were even in a relationship. I never said that I was giving her a present or a free ride. Is it immoral to go to court? Am I expected to give money to every woman on the street?

Let’s reframe this issue from the “outdated” thinking of generations past. Indeed, the female expectation – that women are entitled to cash and prizes from men for going on dates and providing sexual favors tells us women view dating as a sophisticated form of prostitution. In other words, for attention and sex during the relationship, she is entitled to “stuff” and the man is entitled to the bill. That mentality is evident in this case. After taking Nina Zgurskaya on a romantic vacation in Crimea, a 12-day holiday she suggested the couple embark on, she walked out on him because she did not get the proposal she wanted. Nina describes her flighty behavior in an interview:

We went to Fedosia, Crimea, for 12 days and agreed that it was a romantic trip where he will propose to me. But it didn’t happen. So I left. We’ve been in court since October 2015. He filed two suits against me, for money transfers to me and for the holiday. He had receipts.

Just an opinion, but this sounds like she was trying to worm her way into exploiting the young lawyer’s money, status, and power by sexing him up on an exotic vacation. She was already in his wallet as he was wiring her money. She thought she could get a proposal out of the deal to entitle herself to half his income and possibly more in divorce court, and the manipulation blew up in her face.

In turn, Nina received court papers a few weeks later demanding she refund flower, restaurant and café expenses her ex-boyfriend incurred while dating her. The court dismissed his first claim, but he filed a second one. (Bravo, man!) Her ex boyfriend is demanding around $700 in expenses, which does not seem like much to ask, considering the circumstances. Men are regularly expected to pay hundreds of dollars a month to ex-wives in alimony payments, even though today’s liberated women supposedly Don’t Need a Man™. If women are demanding equal pay, why do they need a man to pay for anything? She should happily refund his money.

The man claims he never agreed to be her boyfriend and had nothing more than a “working relationship” with Nina. Legal experts said the man had little chance of winning the case because he did not make Nina sign the receipts. Moreover, men are viewed as little more than sperm donors and meal tickets in the court system. However, the case speaks volumes about a change in mentality men are having worldwide.


Expecting entitlement to a man’s money in exchange for dates and sexual favors is little more than sophisticated prostitution

Lessons Learned

The plaintiff’s actions should be applauded by Red Pill men everywhere as we work towards men’s liberation from sexist, feminist ideology that says men should be merry walking wallets who pay for everything from meals to vacations in Crimea, with women able to walk out on the relationship at anytime, even after debts and other financial obligations have been made fulfilling their desires. We should be happy for the use and abuse, in other words.

Even though this is a hopeless case to win, it is causing stress for Nina in that she has to go to court and explain everything to a judge. If thousands, no, millions of men worldwide banded together and did the same thing a change could be forced on both the court system and women’s condescension of men, treating us a little more than utilities to be exploited until our usefulness runs out.

The puss pass needs to be revoked in order to achieve equality. Recouping expenses incurred in failed relationships, especially if men starting keeping receipts and records would set a precedent that should be followed everywhere: women no longer get special privileges only because of their sex.

We can also glean yet another example of predatory female behavior and victim card playing from this case. Nina expected a proposal for offering herself up for a vacation, and when she didn’t get what she wanted she walked out, more than likely expecting the young attorney to chase after like a lost puppy dog. However, an unpleasant surprise arrived in her mailbox a few weeks later when a summons showed up. What does she do? Go play the victim for getting sued.


In another case, a wealthy film producer is being sued for not disclosing she had herpes to a Tinder hookup partner

Tinder Hookup Herpes

In an unrelated, amusing case of men using the legal system game against women instead of the other way around, a Las Vegas man is suing a girl he met on Tinder for giving him herpes. The man, who is anonymously referred to in court documents as John Doe, said the woman gave him herpes after she explicitly requested he not use a condom because she was a “good Jewish mother.”

His claims against the single mom include fraud, battery, willful misconduct, gross negligence and infliction of emotional distress. He is seeking $10,000 in damages for medical care expenses and loss of life enjoyment, as well as an unknown amount for punitive damages.

After waking up with painful herpes blisters, John Doe contacted his Tinder hookup. The woman, who is as reported by news sources a wealthy film producer, described having many hookups with men to the plaintiff on Tinder, then later told John Doe she “had no idea” her herpes could be transmitted even without an outbreak after he confronted her. Indeed, Tinder and its gay equivalent Grindr, have been connected with the spread of STDs and in creating a “dating apocalypse” in an already degenerate American culture. Charles Prince of Vegas Matchmakers, an offline dating agency, told interviewers:

On her end of the scale, she should have been honest, but his decision to pursue instant gratification is going to affect him the rest of his life. They both went on the site, they both knew what they were getting into: they were looking for a quick night of fun, a good time. Now he’s paying the price and he doesn’t like it.

Prince’s comment represents willingness to give the producer the puss pass again. If the case had been reversed, the likelihood a man would be so easily forgiven for knowingly passing an STD to a women is very low.

If the only way to deal with the consequences of today’s increasingly petty and degenerate dating market is to pursue legal recourse in the court system, more power to the men who use it to their advantage rather than allowing themselves to be eternal defendants. Women have been manipulating the legal system to their advantage a long ime. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.

10 Red Pill H.L. Mencken Quotes


Henry Louis Mencken when he wrote for the Baltimore Sun

H.L. Mencken is one of the boldest truth tellers of the 20th century. Therefore, he is held in high regard at The New Modern Man. Mencken was a German-American journalist who is regarded as one of the most influential writers of modern times.

After reading Huckleberry Finn at age 9, Mencken knew he wanted to become a writer. He first worked in his father’s cigar store, which he disliked, before going on to study journalism by correspondence proving that rubber stamps from Ivy League schools have nothing to do with intellectual brilliance. (As an aside, one of the dumbest people I ever met graduated from Notre Dame once again confirming rubber stamps mean nothing.) Mencken then began working at a series of newspapers before founding and editing The American Mercury, a national publication that became very influential on college campuses of the time, before they became infested with liberalism.

He displayed a remarkable ability to sift through the myths that plague all civilizations and uncover truth. Even though there was no concept of Red Pill back then, Mencken had a better grasp of the concepts of mythbusting and truth telling than almost anyone before, or anyone since. Here are 10 quotes from H.L. Mencken which are just a relevant today as they were then.


The search for truth is nothing new for the awakened man, and writers like Mencken have a firm grasp of truth

The Quotes

1. The first selection is from A Mencken Chrestomathy, a book in which he selected some of his own favorite quotations. He reveals the true function of governments, and how they ultimately cripple men who are strong and self-sufficient.

All government, in its essence, is a conspiracy against the superior man: its one permanent object is to oppress him and cripple him. If it be aristocratic in organization, then it seeks to protect the man who is superior only in law against the man who is superior in fact; if it be democratic, then it seeks to protect the man who is inferior in every way against both. One of its primary functions is to regiment men by force, to make them as much alike as possible and as dependent upon one another as possible, to search out and combat originality among them. All it can see in an original idea is potential change, and hence an invasion of its prerogatives.

2. From his book Prejudices, Mencken talks about the danger a clear-seeing individual poses to the power structure. This quote helps illustrate why tyrannical governments always try to suppress speech, as the U.S. government is now doing after taking a sharp turn towards authoritarianism at the dawn of the 21st century. Red Pill men, and the manosphere, pose dangers to the power structure which is why can expect to be attacked and marginalized as we try to awake other men to the realities of The Matrix.

The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are.

3. As with many thinkers of his time, Mencken saw the slide of the form of government in the U.S. from a Constitutional Republic to a Democracy as a threat to the principles the nation was supposed to be founded on. From Notes on Democracy:

Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance. No one in this world, so far as I know—and I have researched the records for years, and employed agents to help me—has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.

4. The next quote is a fantastic insight, illustrating the mentality of who criticize the degenerate culture and the corrupt government in the United States, only to be demonized by the flag-waving, Team ‘Murica useful idiots. It’s not contempt for Anglo America that drives social and political criticism, it is deep concern over the direction the society is taking that motivates the manosphere.

The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naïve and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair.

5. The next quote parallels the wisdom of Albert Einstein: If you can’t explain something simply, you don’t understand it well enough. This concept is a good idea to keep in mind when debating people who try to muddy the waters by claiming a concept is too complex for the average person to understand.

The best teacher is not the one who knows most but the one who is most capable of reducing knowledge to that simple compound of the obvious and wonderful.

6. We see the next Mencken concept and quote play out quite a lot in modern society. Bertrand Russell called it The Fallacy of the Superior Virtue of the Oppressed. Our species has a tendency to assign moral superiority to those who claim any sort of grievance, especially if it is against the majority. However, Mencken saw right through this façade:

Moral certainty is always a sign of cultural inferiority. The more uncivilized the man, the surer he is that he knows precisely what is right and what is wrong. All human progress, even in morals, has been the work of men who have doubted the current moral values, not of men who have whooped them up and tried to enforce them. The truly civilized man is always skeptical and tolerant, in this field as in all others. His culture is based on “I am not too sure.”

7. Mencken saw the real reasons motivating leaders and nations to go to war, and the desire to keep the populace afraid so as to make them malleable to commands from the government hierarchy. His words are prophetic in that they illustrate the machinery today’s military-industrial complex, and the never-ending, increasingly shady and suspicious American War on Terror that resulted after 9/11.

Civilization, in fact, grows more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. Wars are no longer waged by the will of superior men, capable of judging dispassionately and intelligently the causes behind them and the effects flowing out of them. The are now begun by first throwing a mob into a panic; they are ended only when it has spent its ferine fury.

8. In the modern age, education is the buzzword of politicians and the lemmings in the mainstream media but the reality is a degree has become less of a symbol of education and more of a tool of enslavement. The average college graduate walks away with $30,000 in non-banktruptable debt, which helps keep them nice and pliable when under the heel of their future employer. Today’s public education system conforms to the ideals discussed below by Mencken, of creating a dependent nation of sheeple.

The most erroneous assumption is to the effect that the aim of public education is to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence, and so make them fit to discharge the duties of citizenship in an enlightened and independent manner. Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States, whatever the pretensions of politicians, pedagogues and other such mountebanks, and that is its aim everywhere else.

9. And of course, politicians were the same corrupt, often psychopathic lowlifes back then that they are now. Only today they have a lot more power to micromanage our lives as men have been de-balled by 50 years of feminism and social engineering us. Government promises effectively amount to nothing more than robbing from the producers to give to the dependent class.

Every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods.

10. Of course, as Puritanism is deeply embedded in Anglo American culture, its influence is such that the belief sexual repression, working to the point of obsession, and abstinence from any sort of pleasure are nobler pursuits than those of other, more libertine cultures. Of this, Mencken wrote:

Puritanism is the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy.

Anglo American Puritanism is an interesting study in and of itself, and still has a massive amount of influence over cultural practices in North America.


Good reads like Mencken are illuminating and relieving in knowing other men have dealt with the same pathologies in society

Enlightening Palliatives

Mencken is one of those rare authors who helps illuminate the mind of the Red Pill man to his plight, and the plight of his society. Reading his cynical but honest work also helps alleviate some of the pain felt by the awakened man to know the insanity of our time did not just appear out of the blue; the pathologies of man have been ongoing for a long time. However, they show no signs of being corrected, and indeed have worsened, especially in our modern age when the weaknesses of the herd are treated as strings to be pulled by an elite.

Unfortunately, Menken’s insights also show us intellectual prowess is no promise that reason will ever be heard by the masses or the often psychopathic shepherds that guide them. It is cathartic, however, to write these realizations down in hopes that someday, some shred of this knowledge will be recognized and appreciated by posterity. For that, we give gratitude to men like H.L. Mencken providing philosophical guidance to the truth-seeking individual.

Why You Should Ignore Women


Women crave male attention, you decide whether you give it to them or they earn it

Women love male attention whether they admit it or not. In fact, women get upset when men don’t notice them, especially if they have spent a lot of time on putting their war paint (makeup) on and bought some sort of new garment or shoes from the store. If men who women think should be noticing them aren’t, women will start acting childish. From giving men who ignore them dirty looks to seething about it in the bathroom with their girlfriends, women cannot stand being invisible to men. If men only knew the power of this tactic, intentionally withholding attention from women on a regular basis rather than giving it to them for nothing, they could affect real change in the way women act and treat men.

The Red Pill man uses aloof behavior to his advantage when dealing with females. An aloof attitude is one of the best qualities a man can develop: cool, calm, collected, uncaring, indifferent. Women want attention and approval from their peers as well as men they find desirable. When they don’t get this attention, the hamster hops on the wheel and spins very quickly, often until it falls off the wheel. Women who don’t get the proper level of attention will do everything from accusing men who ignore them of being gay to hurling personal insults at them. How many times have we seen women throw around the “loser” insult? Whenever you hear this word, her ego has been pinpricked by something you did to her.

Female self esteem is based on what others think of them. This is why women exhibit pack and herd behavior. Marketing flacks know this which is why they push their wares on women instead of men. The majority of consumer marketing is directed at women, not men, and for good reason. Women make up 80% of consumerism in America, and much of that money is spent on making themselves more beautiful and desirable. Going back to pack and herd behavior, if a female who is revered by other women (such as an actress or pop star) adopts a new hairstyle, we have all seen that style trickle down through society as women copy first the actress and then other women who have the hairstyle. I first noticed it as a teenager with the Jennifer Aniston hairstyle when Friends came out in the 1990s. Soon after, every other girl had the “Jennifer Aniston” look.

Hilariously, female attention-seeking behavior now powers a gigantic trophy industry in Anglo America. Women are getting trophies for everything from good work at their jobs to beauty contests. While they tell men to lower their standards (do not look for a trophy wife), women are doing everything they can to become a trophy themselves, including rewarding themselves with faux trophies for doing little more than existing. Yes, their egos are that fragile.


Women’s attitudes change when have to do more for male attention than just looking pretty

Deflate the Female Ego

The neg. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s one of the most important concepts of Game. A neg is a backhanded compliment, impeccably timed and delivered. Something along the lines of: That blouse is nice, my mother has one just like it. As petty as the neg sounds, it is actually a great tactic for catching women off guard instead of the usual Beta male butt kissing that helps inflate their egos.

One of the reasons women are so arrogant today is because of a sexual market that has shifted towards the Pareto Principle. With most men figuratively (and sometimes literally) begging for sex, women receive constant attention from thirsty, incel Betas. The last thing she wants is another Beta to kiss her behind and orbit her in hopes he’ll get a few sexual crumbs off the table. The neg can be an important way to demonstrate higher value, letting her know subconsciously you are not an thirsty Beta, you are a man that other women desire. As mentioned above, women are pack and herd creatures, so a man other women want is a man your target is going to want.

If you already have a woman, keeping her ego in check is essential if you want to keep her around. There are several tips to assist you in managing her. To the uninitiated, the tips will seem counterintuitive to everything you have been told by society. But to the experienced, the tips will be common sense. Here’s a list of dos and don’ts to avoid becoming a Beta male in the female mind, all based the power of ignoring:

  • Ignore what women want
  • Don’t do what they demand you do
  • Do not listen to what they say they want
  • Be aloof, ignoring her insults and having impeccably delivered comebacks to each of them


  • Develop yourself; never make a female your main priority
  • Do not become a walking wallet
  • Always have backups (side dishes) ready to go

By ignoring women and refusing to cave to their whims, you are demonstrating subconsciously that you are a man of high value. A man with options does not jump when a girl squawks, because he doesn’t have to. Staying cool and distant demonstrates that you are the prize, and she is seeking you. Women chase what retreats. Make yourself the sought after prize rather than turning her into the sought after prize.

Developing your own productive hobbies and interests will increase your personal happiness as well as your value in her mind. Avoid becoming a walking wallet at all costs, you will never be able to keep pace on The Hedonic Treadmill and will either fall off or have a heart attack trying. And of course, the Red Pill man always has more than one female plate spinning, which is a good insurance policy against one-itis and acts as an overall confidence booster.


Men putting themselves first makes them the pursued rather than the pursuer

You Are the Prize

The biggest mistake men make is becoming trained monkeys for women, inflating their egos (as they desire men to do) with constant attention and doing what women want them to do, essentially turning themselves into doormats. Then, these men act surprised when they get walked on.

Men must remember they spend a lifetime becoming something of value while women just are women, there’s no becoming. Nature endows women with sexual market value that men have to spend a lifetime acquiring: gaining money, status, and power to even show up on the female radar.

Women, as the gatekeepers of sex hold the power to what men want. However, men also are gatekeepers. Men are the gatekeepers of commitment. Ignoring women and ignoring what they want shows you do not give your commitment away for nothing. In the male mind, a woman that gives sex away easily is a whore. In the female mind, a man that gives away his attention and commitment easily is a Beta.

Remember: Stay aloof, neg, ignore wishes, demands, and female attention seeking, and look out for number one. Playing with women’s emotions by ignoring them most of the time, while occasionally throwing their egos a bone with a halfhearted compliment, and not doing things for them like trained puppy dogs might seem cold to the uninitiated in the romantic arts, but the man who learns the correct behavior wields an enormous amount of power in today’s sexual jungle.

Where Do You Stand in the Sexual Hierarchy


What are your chances of hitting that? Improve your standing in the sexual hierarchy by learning about how males are subconsciously ranked by females

In nature, hierarchies are everywhere. They have been a part of history since we crawled out of the slime. In a woman’s subconscious hindbrain, she ranks men according to their social and sexual status before deciding if any of them are worthy of a visit to the love cave.

That is why learning about the Social-Sexual Hierarchy is important. Not knowing the hierarchy, then adapting accordingly to the Red Pill realities of the world will leave you in a disadvantaged position in The Mating Game. Neitzsche wrote on the importance of changing one’s opinions when faced with unpleasant facts:

The snake which cannot cast its skin has to die. As well the minds which are prevented from changing their opinions; they cease to be minds.

Adaptation is key in the sexual market. The r-selected modern sexual market and its resultant hierarchy explains why 20% of the men currently monopolize 80% of the attention and affection of women. After social restraints were lifted from women’s sexuality, Betas were abandoned in the same way Jack Dawson was abandoned by Rose, cast off to sink into the cold water after his usefulness had expired keeping her afloat in the film Titanic. Women naturally only want to pursue the very top of the sexual hierarchy when the law of the jungle returns.

In this regard, patriarchy and the nuclear family are the essential building blocks of civilization. But in the modern day free-for-all, not exploiting every advantage will leave you sexless and hopeless in Anglo America. Humans are becoming increasingly feral in this feminized environment. The bottom four-fifths of men are either angry, involuntarily celibate, or checking out of a system that treats them as little more than worker bees and subjects to extract taxes from. This is a shame, because it takes very little to make most men happy.

Where do you currently fall in the hierarchy? This infographic introduces the concept of the Social and Sexual Hierarchy.


Listed in order of sexual success with women

The Five Male Archetypes

Roughly, 20% of men are Alphas, Sigmas and top tier Betas, while the bottom 80% are other Betas, Gammas, and Omegas. We see the 80/20 rule time and time again in nature and the world, in business it is known as the Pareto Principle, and it applies to the Social-Sexual Hierarchy, too. Let’s elaborate a little more on the hierarchy.


Alphas cannot walk outside without falling into puss. The Alpha is the center of male and female attention. Women are uncontrollably drawn to the Alpha primarily because of his social status. Women would rather be part of the harem of an Alpha than the one and only of a Johnny 9-to-5 Beta or lower male in the hierarchy. Women justify the selfish and often horrible decisions they make when in the company of Alphas with their built-in Rationalization Hamster. Estimates vary widely, but the Alpha has at least 30-40, if not hundreds of sexual partners over his lifetime.


The introverted version of the Alpha. Sigmas are also very successful with women even though the idea of being the center of attention repulses them. They are Lone Wolfs and bad boys who do not play along with the usual, ridiculous social games. Estimates vary, but the Sigma has at least 30-40 sexual partners over his lifetime, but Greater Sigma notch counts can easily reach over 100 as well.


Betas tend to fumble when it comes to dealing with women. They are underappreciated and make up the majority hardworking and honest men in society. Betas do all the important work of the society but are not valued by their government or women. Betas are the source of most of the tax money used to power Uncle Sugar’s gynocentric welfare state. They can be attractive and charming, sometimes not. But as we all know social or financial status, not physical attractiveness, is everything to the female. Betas are usually kept around by women for their resources, which is why their power is diminishing in today’s sexual market. Often, a woman will have a Beta so she can spend his money while fucking an Alpha or Sigma on the side. Betas are also used and abused as well as enslaved by the family court system in America. When dating, Betas often have long dry spells in which they get no sexual action. Over their lifetime, a rough estimate is they will end up with 5-15 sexual partners.


Gammas either have no idea how vicious the sexual market is, or they become embittered by it. Gammas are either emotionally needy or do not know how to stand up to women. They can be infested with a severe case of pedestalization syndrome. Rather than adapting to harsh realities, they blame the Game for their unhappiness instead of becoming a player in it. Gammas get lucky with maybe a handful of women in their lives. Women would rather end up as the Cat Lady than marry or pursue a Long Term Relationship with a Gamma.


Omega males tend to be very awkward with women. They have little to no social status, so they are completely invisible to women. Their powerlessness in the sexual market often leads to psychological problems and indeed many of the recent mass shootings can be tied to men who were of this lowest status, as well as the medical establishment’s attempts to profit off their misery by drugging them. Needless to say, Rosy Palm and porn are their best friends. Women are repulsed by the Omega. Lifetime notch counts are in the single digits, if that.


Just because you are a Beta now doesn’t mean you have to stay one

Upward Mobility

Just because a man is born one type does not mean he has to stay that type. Improvement begins with I. Learning the Laws of Game and Laws of Hypergamy will help enormously. Realize women do not love men the way men love women. Even an Omega can adapt his mind to exploit the biology and psychology of women and become more successful in plundering poon. Likewise, a Beta can stop being a walking wallet when he learns either how to play the Game or to let women’s hypergamous instincts work for him.

These concepts are not for everyone. If you haven’t already, make the decision as to whether you want to take the Red Pill or the Blue Pill. The New Modern Man and the rest of the manosphere is written by and for those who swallow the jagged little pill of reality.

What the Real-World Matrix Is


As Morpheus said, “Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.”

In the politically incorrect, Realtalk manosphere the term The Matrix comes up often. While it derives its name and general concept from the 1999 film, in the real world it refers to the current dominant system of social engineering and human tax farming that originated in Anglo America. This system of managed democracy and inverted totalitarianism now aims to consolidate its power around the globe.

As my third grade teacher always said, you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink. These concepts are not for everyone. But if you came here looking for harsh truths, you have come to the right place.

Here are what each of the terms used in the above infographic mean, and how they apply to the larger Red Pill hypothesis. It all starts with the corporate-government complex, as defined by The New Modern Man:

Large corporations (of which there are 16 that control over 90% of the products you consume and information you get to see or hear) fund political campaigns and lobby for the government to have more power; in turn the government enacts laws favorable to large corporations. The left blames corporations while the right blames the government, when in reality the two interests work together to subvert the will of the people.

The military-industrial complex is a term used since Eisenhower’s farewell address in 1961. Here is what it means:

The military–industrial complex is an informal alliance between a nation’s military and the defense industry which supplies it, seen together as a vested interest which influences public policy.

Of course, the education system is the next step in this system of social control. (Affectionately reffered to as the “edumacation system” here at TNMM.) This education system not only saddles college graduates with an average of $30,000 in non-bankruptable debt, but serves as a massive indoctrination compound for leftism, feminism, and Cultural Marxism. Whistle-blower and former Senior Policy Advisor in the U.S. Department of Education Charlotte Thomson-Iserbyt exposes the true objectives of this system:

They’re looking at [your child] as a cog in the wheel to be trained, not educated.

The Corrupt Media then manipulate the masses with campaigns of fear and consumption, while always appealing to government authority as a sort of god that will solve all the world’s problems. It also helps promote the medical-pharmaceutical complex with constant drug advertising and spurious news reports that give people the notion the solution to all their health problems is a trip to the doctor and a pill. All the while, as Tom Naughton has proven, the government promotes a food pyramid that leads to a heart disease and obesity epidemic.

A growing police and surveillance state in America is a product of what Ron Paul has called the “biggest and most intrusive government in the history of mankind.” The United States imprisons more people per capita (as a percentage of the population) than any other nation in the history of mankind, mainly for drug crimes in a failed War on Drugs that has cost one trillion dollars and yet has not reduced drug use. It has led to people seeking prescription drugs from the medical-pharmaceutical complex, however. In that regard, it lets an institution the government regulates control the supply.

Politicians then knowingly create or misrepresent problems by sewing division on every possible difference they can find in people – everything from race to sex to religion (among other differences). The Political Game and its vivisection of the public into squabbling factions that can’t stand each other lives up to the age old concept of divide and conquer.

Feminism, promoted since the 1960s has worked hand in hand with Cultural Marxism to break up the nuclear family, the foundation of any civilized society. Anthropologist J.D. Unwin studied history and found that no society on earth has ever remained civilized once restrictions on female sexuality have been lifted, 30 years before feminism was unleashed on the public by the CIA via Gloria Steinem.

Another product of The Political Game is Racial Bolshevism, which scapegoats whites and particularly white males as the villains behind all the world’s problems. (Which in truth, these problems are mostly created by politicians.)

The Global Warming Religion is then preached and becomes a creed for those who then have no religion, after Cultural Marxism has purged traditional religion from their lives. It not only serves this purpose, but more importantly is leading to the creation of a global carbon tax and therefore global government, since a body that has the power to tax every nation is a de facto world government.

When the objectives of each of the pieces of this puzzle are put together, the objective of eliminating the nation-state and emergence of a Communist New World Order comes into plain view. This centralized power will be ruthlessly enforced by stringent economic and social controls once the two halves of Western Civilization, Europe and the United States are reduced as threats to the consolidation of power by ongoing demographic replacement. The rest of the world will fall like dominoes once the most powerful countries in the world fall under the new world government.


Remember, all I’m offering is the truth, nothing more

Hard to Swallow

Not everyone will have the capacity to take the Red Pill and see this truth as well as many other inconvenient truths about the way our world really works. The finer details are debatable of course, but this chart provides a good overall outline and shows what the end goal of the puppetmasters in the powerful world of business and government elites is and what they want for the world.

The Red Pill also refers to facing the hard truths about women. Many men after learning these concepts then go on to either become PUAs (Pick-Up Artists) or MGTOWs (Men Going Their Own Way). Some of the rest of us learn to put the power of hypergamy to work for us. Our 10 Laws of the Mating Game and 10 Laws of Exploiting Hypergamy go into more detail on this aspect of the Red Pill Hypothesis.

It is up to you whether you will do as the majority does and take the Blue Pill, or join us and take the Red Pill. The character of Morpheus explains this choice in the film.

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

In the real world, taking the Blue Pill equates with believing the myths that the mythmakers in politics, public relations flacks, and advertisers spin. Taking the Red Pill equates with dispensing of all these myths and learning to accept the harsh realities of the world in which we live.
