There is a quiet war ravaging our world beneath our noses, a war most sense but cannot put into words. On one side are the men and women of greatness, of a commitment to truth, reality and excellence. The men and women who lead lives like beacons of hope, who inspire you with the belief that you too can be great, that life can be everything you hoped it would be. Set against them are the ragged collectivists, the cultural relativists who would drag everyone to the equality of the gutter rather than let a single soul shoot for the stars. The Guardian-reading, Islington-dwelling, Labour-voting, WholeFoods-shopping intellectual vandals who would have you believe there is no objective good. That Beethoven is no better than Britney Spears, that
Jason Statham Alfred Hitchcock is no better than Ken Loach, Alexandre Dumas no better than Dan Brown.
There are people who will deny greatness exists. They wish everyone to be equally miserable.
They do so to rationalise their own miserable existence. They have given up the challenge of life and it’s struggles and now wish to insulate themselves from the harsh feedback of the real world. They set up internet echo chambers to pat each other on the back as they snitch, sneer and snide on those who acheive.
One part of this war is to persuade you all women are tramps, harlots, and whores. They wish to denigrate the greatness of a fully-developed woman and the joy she brings to those around her. These losers are stuck in an ever-repeating cycle of find-slut-fuck-slut-hate-on-slut. The only way they can stand the soul-death it brings is to deny life can be better. These practical men will bullshit you down to their level.
Should you need a mast to cling to, a patch of dry land in a storm, return to this video. Female perfection exists, and this is what it looks like.
Watch this video and try to tell me women are just warm bodies to fuck

excellent essay kman. you have give me a lot to think about.

Last few blog entries are absolute masterpiece, hope to read more like these. I may be wrong, but I feel vague influence of Nietzsche in your thoughts?

No. Its not Nietzsche. [Correct. Never read more than a few pages of him. K.]
“On one side are the men and women of greatness, of a commitment to truth, reality and excellence.”
Only one philosopher speaks like that and it Rand not Nietzsche. I really like Rand but wow, if there is one philosopher that is near impossible to reconcile with the PickUp arts I would say that it is Rand. Nietzsche is usually the preferred favorite of PUAs. A true Randian would be in a committed value oriented relationship – perhaps serial monogamy but not the de facto polygamy of Game. [I’m not an Anything-ian. I like her work. There’s solid Game in Atlas Shrugged and even more so in Fountainhead. I differentiate between PUA as a lifestyle choice and Game as a collection of attitudes and skills. ]

This is the perfect description of Roissey; the ultimate Machiavellian Darwinian Conservative. I don’t know if you intended it as a direct attack on Roissey or not, but it is. And I agree with it. [It wasn’t an attack on Roissy. I consider him a moralist disguising himself as a nihilist. He wants to change the world for the better, which is why he’s such a good writer. His Deida-eqsue mission is to lead much put-upon betas to their own salvation. But overall, some good sleuthing there Doug]

Women….some women, can be simply amazing. Likewise with children, they bring richness to our lives despite their unfortunate traits.

I believe that even if a man gets his inner game together and spends a lot of time in self development, it will be very hard for him to find and seduce his match (a woman of the same level of quality).
I´m writing this from personal experience, and also from observing some male friends who have their lives together but simply can´t find women in their league. What I see is that upper quality women will only accept very high status\wealthy men (who are well above them socio economically). [Quality in women has nothing to do with their socioeconomic position. My own personal experience differs from yours. I’ve seen it with my own eyes and on a few occasions done it myself. I fully believe an old Roissy post, that Game is it’s own social status and it slots in above wealth, power and fame]
I may be wrong, but I see things in a very pragmatic way: men will always have to accept women of quality inferior to him. [This last sentence is true, but not in a bad way. The best a woman can be is a 10. A man can be 20+. K.]

Im a young man that discovered game just months ago… and I think there are good things and bad things into reading some experienced pua’s thoughts just like this post.
On the positive side: I now believe that things can be done right and with an aim to have enriching, fun and pleasurable relationships (even SNL’s to LTRs) with quality women.
On the negative side, I am now less prone to have (not even say force myself into) gamey interactions with women not-so-perfect for me. This is getting between me and my sexual needs. I just don’t feel like wanting to do the hard work with a girl that does not keep me remembering her for her value (looks, intelligence, whatever). The point is: I’m inconsciously turning my standards up without getting better at game…
I wonder what are your view on “sport gaming” with birds not so attractive to earn experience. I also have read some of rooshv’s thoughts on this and he just doesn’t care, he bangs equally high 5’s and 9’s. [There’s no shortcut to tight game. You have to do the sets and take risks. It’s an extremely hard path to walk. Don’t beat yourself up if you bang a few 5s. Consider it an experiment, or an adventure, or just a necessary waypoint to getting the women you do like. K.]

i have only read some nietzsche, but one of his big things was saying “yes” to life. he said he was a “yes sayer”, which sounds funny, but what he meant was that he did not reject life, he embraced it.
i think that is very similar to what krauser is saying. saying yes to life, celebrating it, making it everything you hoped it would be.
that line, btw, is my favorite of the essay.
“that life can be everything you hoped it would be.”
November 20, 2011 at 2:47 pm
Didn’t watch the video yet but I get the point.
November 20, 2011 at 3:21 pm
you and delusion damage are providing a good counterweight to the rest of the boys who would have us believe that women are all evil and good only for fucking. They almost had me convinced with their relentless propaganda. Okay….time to spread my wings beyond creeping. Damn! this is going to take some work

“you and delusion damage are providing a good counterweight to the rest of the boys who would have us believe that women are all evil and good only for fucking.”
interesting. gonna have to check out DD more carefully.

I don’t think that any PUA thinks all girls are worthless. Only that most are. But then again, isn’t that the case you are making (that there are some people that are objectively better). I mean what percentage of the female population lives up to those standards? Not much, I would think.
The Randianism is getting a little ridiculous though. She makes some good points, but we all know where her hyper narcissism led. I know you need a philosophy to justify your being an i-banking dbag, but can’t you just live with the fact your a bad person. I mean, you got a lot of money out of it, and when you die your just going to rot in the ground anyway.

I see. So I take it that you’re broke and not getting laid.

The latest news to rock the PUA world and take game to a whole new level.
David De Angelo aka Eben Pagan, CEO of DoubleYourDating and the singlemost financially successful PUA guru in the history of game, has simultaneously come out as bi-sexual AND married a physically unattractive bi-sexual Caribbean woman who happens to look like him!
Eben’s “coming out party in NYC” photo is the 7th one down on the first row here;
The couple will have an open, polyamorous marriage;
As espoused in their “co-created positive wedding affirmations” in this video:
[This is borderline spam but it’s so funny, weird and creepy that I’ll approve the comment just for the lulz it provides. I can’t believe he treats his wedding as a self-help seminar. I’m just glad his oversized blue shirt is absent. Bizarre. I suppose he’s given up on “ten game” K.]

Thanks for the reply, Krauser.
As someone who has dedicated most of his time in recent years to game, how rare would you say a quality woman is?
By quality woman I mean a non promiscuous (virgin, if possible), attractive, intelligent and non feminist woman with good values and ready for a mature relationship with a man.
In my experience, they are so rare as to be practically non existent.
November 24, 2011 at 3:27 pm
I knew some in my previous 6-month trip. One of them was polish. She was an 8.5, quite smart and educated, taugth stuff to children in her country (good values I guess) and calm. She wasn’t the typical drunken party girl you found in that city every night. I was totally into her… too bad she was in town for only two days with two polish friends in their flat.
Sometimes you cannot find her, but you CAN make her a good woman_
November 23, 2011 at 4:37 pm
What an amazingly beautiful woman. Her gestures and facial expressions are happy, confident, and feminine.
November 23, 2011 at 10:09 pm
The basic idea of your post about greatness and those that want to deny its existence is important.
What I don’t understand though is how you can identify
“ragged collectivists, the cultural relativists…The Guardian-reading, Islington-dwelling, Labour-voting, WholeFoods-shopping intellectual vandals [Polly Toynbee] who would have you believe there is no objective good”
on the one hand and on the other those that want to
“persuade you all women are tramps, harlots, and whores. They wish to denigrate the greatness of a fully-developed woman and the joy she brings to those around her. These losers are stuck in an ever-repeating cycle of find-slut-fuck-slut-hate-on-slut.”
These seem like very different categories of people. The first would probably have feminist-beta politically correct views on women, the second sound more like your average commenter on roissy and roosh for example.

Tsk Tsk fella. Didn’t fall in love with the girl on crutches w/ the shit in her face did ye? Please don’t denegrate the gutter. Whom is this Brittany Spears you speak of?
