In this episode I talk about:
Why Ben Stone is wrong when he says “We are winning.”
A girl who thinks 21 – 12 = 8.
Catching Fire (the Hunger Games book)
Why men spend less time chasing girls as they get older. Which is also why old girls can’t find a man.
The point is, so sorry ladies. So so terribly sorry. MGTOW is not like becoming a born again Christian, quitting drugs cold turkey, or joining AA. It’s not a yes or no, an either or, a 1 or 0. It’s the sad reality that men are making logical and economic choices as to how to spend their finite time, and putting women down further and further in terms of life’s priorities when history and empirical data show they don’t provide an adequate rate of return. However, women are rarely kicked off the list completely. Therefore when you see a MGTOW on a date, getting some play, or has some broad on the back of his motorcycle he isn’t a fraud or a hypocrite. He’s a guy who’s living his own life on his terms and STILL slaying it with the ladies.
Taking care of your body, mind and spirit. Work / life balance and your finite time on earth.

Last and First Men by Olaf Stapledon.
Here are some passages from Last and First Men. Tell me these do not describe the United States in 2014.
Thus it was that America sank further and further into Americanism. Vast wealth and industry, and also brilliant invention, were concentrated upon puerile ends. In particular the whole of American life was organized around the cult of the powerful individual, that phantom ideal which Europe herself had only begun to outgrow in her last phase. Those Americans who wholly failed to realize this ideal, who remained at the bottom of the social ladder, either consoled themselves with hopes for the future, or stole symbolic satisfaction by identifying themselves with some popular star, or gloated upon their American citizenship, and applauded the arrogant foreign-policy of their government.
They [Americans] had ever been in vain-glorious and intolerant; but now these qualities in them became extravagant even to insanity. A both as individuals and collectively, they became increasingly frightened of criticism, increasingly prone to blame and hate, increasingly self-righteous, increasingly hostile to the critical intelligence, increasingly superstitious.
America, indeed, professed to have outgrown nationalism, and to stand for political and cultural world unity. But she conceived this unity as a unity under American organization; and by culture she meant Americanism.
