I won’t take too much your time today.
But I had a thought in regards to currently sad state of most modern man.
Simping away time.
You know….the usual behavior patterns of modern men,
“What causes this?”
Why have men grown so weak?
Why would a grown man out of his own free will decide to spend his salary on a random OnlyFans prostitute?
The Slippery Slope of “Yes.”
This is my thesis: “A man who continuously says ‘yes’ to vice and destructive behavior will eventually find himself in a hole.”
“Yes, I need to ejaculate.”
“Yes, I will accept a woman’s obesity for a dose of affection.”
“Yes, I will drink Coca-cola instead of water because it tastes good.”
“Yes, I will stay home and play video games instead of lifting weights.”
Most modern men simply can’t look the beast of dopamine in its eyes and turn away.
They make friends with the beast.
They embrace it.
And eventually the beast eats them alive.
“Yes” is the mentality that fuels addiction.
It’s bothersome to me because it my opinion that there a few characteristics that give certain men huge upside potential:
- The ability to introspect and ask questions.
- An appetite to learn/desire for truth.
Most modern men possess these traits.
That man pictured above likely has the capacity for all three of those traits (although he is failing miserably).
But sadly this potential is squandered…..men throw it down the toilet for short bursts of dopamine afforded by “yessing” their way through life.
So how does the modern man kill his addiction to “yessing” habit ?
The Steep Mountain of “No.”
A simple strategy.
The name of this article is “Man’s most powerful word”….
And I am sure many of you guessed it.
Rather than embracing the dopamine beasts provided by modern society you shun them.
“No, I will not watch pornography.”
“No, I will not eat fast food.”
“No, I will not seek flings with random strangers.”
“No I will crutch my social life with alcohol.”
Easier said than done some might say.
Many modern men are addicted to dopamine release…...”How can I say ‘no’ if I am chemically addicted?”
Start With A Small “No”
“No, I will fast for the next 10 hours.”
“No, I will not play video games tonight.”
“No, I will not be idle.”
It’s the same as any new venture….
“If you accomplish something good with hard work, the labor passes quickly, but the good endures; if you do something shameful in pursuit of pleasure, the pleasure passes quickly, but the shame endures.”
The Black Pill
The likely rebuttal: “Why should I say ‘no’ to the pleasures of life….this society is screwed beyond repair anyways.”
I’ve been seeing a lot of blackpill rhetoric on the internet.
Honestly, I don’t buy into it.
It’s really just another wormhole of the “yes” paradigm.
I agree, there are certain aspect of our society that are clownish and beyond repair any time in the near future….
“meh…WhAT a CoPE.”
I see the Black Pill ideology turning into defeatism.
There is always actions or chance that man can affect in his own realm.
You are always in control of your own daily actions. No matter how far society falls.
When the Black Pill transforms embrace your man’s most powerful word, “No.”
This just something that’s been on my mind the past couple of days…..
“Why are modern men so weak?”
I really do believe it’s because they have grow accustom to “yessing” their way through life.
Delay gratification and lower your time preference.
You will be far ahead of the great masses of modern by doing so.
Talk to you guys soon.
