Ha, "I feel harassed because I keep going there and reading their stuff."

Ban fire while you're at it because it hurts when I touch it.

There's a lot of RP wisdom in rap music once you decode the ebonics.

You give me your number, I call you up, you act like your pussy on interrupt

I ain't got no problem with you fuckin me but I got a little problem with you not fuckin me

ODB was da man

[–]RatherPlayChess -1 points0 points  (2 children)

not lately. If you go back to the OG shit like GURU, there's nothing but redpill. They rap about ENLIGHTENMENT. Modern 'radio rap' and everything post-tupac is just "niggerniggerniggernigger." It's distasteful.

[–]dan_legend 6 points7 points  (1 child)

You could have went with the whole drake being the perfect man slave to every girl he raps about who still dump him, but no, you had to go there.

[–]JohnDavidsonR 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Drake is perfect for 48 laws of power because you hear him sounding like a "bitch", but he's fucking strippers left, and right while the people call him pussy sit at home wishing they fucked the chicks he was fucking.

[–]gillstopper 36 points37 points  (1 child)

The only case where I would consider that genuine would be facebook since you can contact their family members and friends as well. But reddit? Don't even get me started on how little I care about people's comments

[–]Ibex3D 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I've heard a few where it was legit. Like when they get your phone number, email, FB, etc. One kid killed himself because they bullied him by text and would beat him up if he didnt respond. but 99% of cyber bulling is bullshit. Just dont read what they say.

[–]Rougepellet 35 points36 points  (11 children)

Similar to when muslims got offended about the cartoons by charlie hebdo and everyone told them to stfu.

[–]nzgs 39 points40 points  (1 child)

Nonsense. If Hebdo was a libertarian magazine then people would be telling them they got what they deserved. There was so much establishment sympathy for CH because they are a far-left cultural marxist magazine that supports the general multicultural narrative in Europe. This is the same magazine that TWICE started petitions to ban the Front Nationale party. They absolutely detest free speech and so do their supporters. FLFTW16 is entirely correct - most people do not want freedom at all. Very very few people have the intelligence and responsibility to desire a truly free-market voluntary society. Marxism in its various forms never really dies because most people behave like followers and like being told what to do. The parallels with the red pill should be obvious.

[–]RatherPlayChess 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This is the same magazine that TWICE started petitions to ban the Front Nationale party.

I had no idea... but I still support their right to free speech, even if they are using that speech to attempt to censor others.

If I used my power to censor those who would censor those who would censor people, I have become the monster.

Instead, it's necessary to become the stopgap and to say that even if CH was endorsing a detestable idea, it was still their right to support it.

I'm sure all of this seems obvious, but I sensed that you were advocating a pitiless stance on CH as though because their ideology was that of a cultural Marxist nature, they hadn't the right to say what they thought, regardless of content or consequences. (barring libel and slander of course)

[–]2 Endorsed ContributorFLFTW16 68 points69 points  (7 children)

You mean when the rest of the world kowtowed and people said 'Je ne suis pas Charlie', and admitted that offending religions is stupid, and even the Catholic Pope said that it's wrong to insult religion?

The fact is that the vast majority of people are sheep and don't believe in free speech. In numerous countries saying that the holocaust didn't happen will get you a prison sentence.

People don't want freedom. Freedom is scary and offensive.

[–]Anaxamandrous 36 points37 points  (0 children)

The Armenian Genocide is a neat one. Turkey has made it a crime to acknowledge it, and a couple other European countries have made it a crime to deny it. They say Talleyrand, when asked during a period of unrest, whose side he was on, answered that he would know tomorrow. In other words, he would declare once he knew who would win. Well in Europe if you're asked about the Armenian Genocide, asked if you acknowledge it, you are well advised to respond that you'll answer the question after you've checked your map.

I know some left leaning Europeans who argue in favor of banning the "Heil Hitler" crap and Holocaust denial. I have asked them if they realize how silly they seem, combating Hitler's memory by emulating Hitler.

I have to agree with you, most people only want speech to be free as long as it offends nobody, which of course means they don't want speech to be free at all.

[–]frequentlywrong 14 points15 points  (1 child)

The most incredible irony of french free speech rally is that a provocative comedian who said something that could be interpreted as being on the side of terrorists was arrested for saying it the next day.

[–]PaintAndPlastic 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I agree. I'm religious and I think we should be free to criticise (and insult) whatever we like.

[–]MicroMinion 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Charlie Hebdo is one of the stupidest things that has happened in the last two years. We all know we are not free to say what we want, and if you believe in that lie you should really consider that tinfoil hat to keep the brainwashing radiowaves out.

Seriously though, Charlie Hebdo was a huge case of complete hypocrisy, and supporting their statement in contrast to some people who got arrested for saying things that don't even insult someone (see "you may not deny WW2" (no I don't deny it but if people want to tinfoil that hard just let them) as as an example, or any of the many, many different cases of censoring) is just buying into the huge propaganda

[–]Gnometard 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Turns out, I'm a racist for saying the Hebdo shit was not offensive at all and people freaking out about it had not even seen it. I'm still waiting for the ones that were "so bad you don't see them in the media" to prove my racism.

[–]dan_legend 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The fact is that the vast majority of people are sheep and don't believe in free speech. In numerous countries saying that the holocaust didn't happen will get you a prison sentence.

The saddest part of it is when you try to explain to them how ridiculous they sound, EVEN THOUGH YOU AGREE THE HOLOCAUST HAPPENED (or anything that relates to this example), and they immediately respond asking why you don't believe the holocaust happened. Sigh..

[–]1Dev_on 49 points50 points  (18 children)

just remember that when another fucking idiot goes into 2x, acting as if it's a safe place to talk about the wall and solipism

[–]robostanleys 36 points37 points  (2 children)

If they're going to make 2X a default subreddit, they better be prepared when people come in and disagree with them.

[–]CornyHoosier 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Isn't 2X already a default sub-reddit?

[–]dan_legend 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That was his point, but it was poorly worded.

[–]xwhowhatwherex 8 points9 points  (5 children)

"Don't talk about TRP in other subs" is the new "read the sidebar"

[–]dan_legend 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It really is turning into Fight CLub..

[–]1Dev_on 3 points4 points  (1 child)

By that you mean the solid, basic advice that no one seems to follow?

[–]CornyHoosier 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Sadly it's true. I don't mention TRP at all anymore. Some of the time people go into my comment history though and then bash me for it.

At the end of the day I don't really care. It's some silly "internet points". I don't even HAVE link karma. It's at the stock (1)

[–]UgUgImDyingYouIdiot 64 points65 points  (9 children)

One of my other accounts is a mod account in a "conspiracy/dark enlightenment" sub and I've had an uptick of SJW messages asking me to contact admins to ban certain users who are critical of leftist ideology.

[–]makethemsayayy 23 points24 points  (2 children)

do you tell them to eat a dick?

[–]UgUgImDyingYouIdiot 40 points41 points  (1 child)

Yeah I called them hypocritical cunts

[–]fistulatte 13 points14 points  (3 children)

What's the sub? I'm intrigued conspiracy/dark enlightenment is right up my alley.

[–]RojoEscarlata 13 points14 points  (1 child)

hahhaa I was banned from /r/navy for pointing out that some JIDF where in the thread.

[–]dontdrinkthekoolade 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They took away your shipmate card lol

[–]sealteamaus 110 points111 points  (6 children)

we are now a world of sooks, people screaming and crying because they are offended. its just sad.

[–]Magnum256 22 points23 points  (3 children)

It's because society protects those people the most and gives them the most rights, and if you do anything to silence them or contradict their opinion then you're the bully and they're the victim. We now live in a world where the loudest most obnoxious fuckheads get the furthest, and the strong-minded, silent types get the least; it's not like in our grandfather's era where shutting your mouth and man'ing up was the best way to get things done.

[–]TheGillos 6 points7 points  (2 children)

shutting your mouth and man'ing up was the best way to get things done.

It still is in the real world.

[–]BluepillProfessor 17 points18 points  (1 child)

We don't live in the 'real' world but a feminist inspired illusion.

[–]Knight_of_autumn 11 points12 points  (0 children)

And people are wondering why all of the Middle eastern countries aren't taking America seriously anymore. It's just going to be Rome all over again. The pre-eminent world power, crumbling at the hands of savages because they have lost their values.

[–]u-r-silly 4 points5 points  (0 children)

"If there’s ever a time when you don’t feel safe or comfortable, hit that report button. We’ll be there."

from the "you'll be banned if you disagree with us, because that's harassment and body shaming" link in OP.

Very sad indeed.

[–]okkyle 144 points145 points  (6 children)

Excellent post. Very timely. I was honestly just thinking of this same issue earlier today, though I did not know about the changes to the no harrasment policy.

Not too long ago, reddit announced that it would start censoring posts from "climate change deniers." Putting aside what you may think about global warming, censorship like this should be a warning sign for TRPers. Remember, reddit is fundamentally a democratic website - up voting and down voting. This is antithetical to free speech, and basically means that when the majority doesn't like certain material, that material will be cast aside and eventually banned.

Truth is treason in an empire of lies. Time to start building a life boat.

[–]MonkahBoy 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Source? While I believe you, I don't recall seeing this.

[–]OhRoshambo 30 points31 points  (0 children)

The real problem with this is the number of bots. Censoring a subject becomes a buy 5000 downvotes for $15.

[–]riverraider69 19 points20 points  (0 children)

reddit announced that it would start censoring posts from "climate change deniers."

Reddit didn't, certain subreddits did. It actually speaks in favor of subreddit independence - you do what you want on your own turf. Plus it looks like they got sick of having the same unconstructive conversation, so it's more alike to banning trolls.

http://grist.org/climate-energy/reddits-science-forum-banned-climate-deniers-why-dont-all-newspapers-do-the-same/

[–]sweetleef 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Not too long ago, reddit announced that it would start censoring posts from "climate change deniers."

There's no better indicator of the weakness of an argument than prohibiting disagreement with it.

[–]1FatStig 15 points16 points  (1 child)

It's usually not even denying. It's questioning the wisdom of making trillion dollar decisions that will have on the order of the same downside as predicted climate change based on unproven models.

I'm no expert in climate change but I am in modeling and simulation. I would not trust any model that much.

[–]stumbles047 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Temperatures have swung wildly long before humans came along to perturb the CO2 concentrations by burning fossil fuels. And temperatures have shifted when CO2 stays constant. If they wanted to help the environment they would tax pollutants that do actual harm and not a fundamental molecule of photosynthesis and respiration.

[–]PumpDumpPumpDump 85 points86 points  (7 children)

Good luck. That's like saying "these guys are a cancer, let's smash them into little pieces to cure it!"

What happens then? Metastasis. You can't kill ideas, and 100,000 people is a lot of people. Now they're spread around reddit, spread around the internet. If people can't talk about this stuff here, they'll talk about it someplace else.

Realistically this sub is going to go away someday, but it's too late to stop people from thinking the crimethink. There's too many other websites and too many people who've been introduced to the ideas. The major news media has started writing stories about how terrible sites like this are, which is basically just free advertising. There's already twice as many subscribers here as the feminism subreddit. The comments sections on mainstream news articles often look like they're TheRedPill nowadays anyway, because so many people from places like this swarm them.

The only way you could shut us up is if we're wrong. If men try out the ideas here and don't get laid, they'll stop doing them. Although for some reason I don't see very many "I tried being confident and assertive and the women hated it and fucked a brony instead" posts.

But if we're right, the implications are far worse than these people understand. Everyone here is focused on self-improvement in a way I've never seen anywhere else. If we're right, that is a huge competitive advantage over anybody else, and a large chunk of the next generation of the country's business leadership is going to be people who subscribe to the ideas of this sub.

[–]Breach_of_trust 35 points36 points  (4 children)

Since I started reading this sub, I've become the director of my own software consultancy firm and have employees. I always had it in me but trp was the catalyst. Purely anecdotal of course. Will offer my services to puerarchy this evening to develop a forum for them.

Edit: free of charge ofc

[–]Claude_Reborn 20 points21 points  (3 children)

free of charge ofc

Never work for free.

You can do the work at your standard rate, and chose to give them a 100% discount, but never work for free.

Always let people know what you're worth

[–]Breach_of_trust 27 points28 points  (2 children)

Free of charge doesn't mean free, I get the smile on my face when the SJW crowd realises their efforts effect nothing. That's worth a hundred times my daily rate.

[–]RojoEscarlata 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You misunderstood him, wanting to share your work in order to push your ideals (or to piss SJW off) is a great cause.

Giving away your work "for free" ironically makes the work itself lose it's value, giving value/price even if you give them a discount of a 100% prevents it.

[–]Breach_of_trust 7 points8 points  (0 children)

There's no need for me to humblebrag my daily rate around, I know what it's worth and that's all which matters to me.

[–]alphbux 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Although for some reason I don't see very many "I tried being confident and assertive and the women hated it and fucked a brony instead" posts.

Laughed my ass off at that one.

[–]putsch80 59 points60 points  (4 children)

If someone hasn't backed up the sidebar materials that are hosted on reddit, it might be a good idea to do so.

[–]PublicallyViewable 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Aren't all of them backed up by those archive sites?

[–]100 Modbsutansalt 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Not really. Some will be by the larger Internet archive website and Google cache, but not all.

[–]DanReggins 24 points25 points  (3 children)

Reddit has banned controversial subreddits before, along with shadowbanning anyone who participated -- even if they were using separate accounts. They'd get the user's main accounts, too.

There are other places that already exist that are mostly SJC-free.

[–]naturalredpill 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Good. I will be out of here any way. I hope reddit lives long as the other myspace.

[–]Lignodrain 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Lol, the second TRP is banned is the second I never use reddit again

[–]Dark triad expert: - http://illimitablemen.com/ - [3 Points]IllimitableMan 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Everyone follow http://therationalmale.com/. Rollo's site is really good. Probably the most comprehensive blog on RP theory in the manosphere.

[–]8thhenry 238 points239 points  (71 children)

Which books will they be burning? 21st century nazis.

[–]Rathadin 30 points31 points  (7 children)

I want to see them ban /r/redpillwomen after this subreddit gets blown up, that'd be some hilarious shit.

[–]Dark triad expert: - http://illimitablemen.com/ - [3 Points]IllimitableMan 46 points47 points  (0 children)

They'll probably get a pussy pass.

[–]1independentmale 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They'll ban it "for their own protection." I've seen posts by SJWs claiming RP women need rescuing from RP men who have abused and brainwashed them.

[–]krustytheclown2 4 points5 points  (4 children)

I'm a dude but I think that subreddit is pretty cool. They prescribe to the same principles as we do and their members encourage somewhat submissive behavior.

[–]NoRegretj 19 points20 points  (1 child)

I almost want to wonder how it'll be written down in history; but I won't be here to read it so fuck it who cares.

[–]1sailorJery 36 points37 points  (0 children)

In the words of Achilles, that's why no one will remember your name.

[–]skripklubbin 76 points77 points  (60 children)

Surely you understand the difference between a company deciding what is or is not allowed on its website and state sponsored censorship, right?

[–]InfiniteBauer 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Of course reddit can do whatever it pleases, but something doesn't have to be unconstitutional to be subject to criticism. Freedom of speech is a private value in addition to a public right.

[–]rpkarma 85 points86 points  (18 children)

It's a shame you're down voted, as you have a decent point.

Where the lines blur however, is that the Internet is almost a state unto itself. However, it's a "state" that's entirely owned by corporations. That's why it's worrying, as while you are correct, the corporations that own the Internet could ban your speech, and enact that ban rather simply.

That's why it's worrying. Imo anyway.

[–]Cypher211 27 points28 points  (9 children)

His point isn't really valid to be honest as the parallel isn't about state sponsored censorship vs website censorship. This is about institutional censorship, and we see this happening at all levels - in companies, in intellectual circles, at a state level, on websites, the list goes on. Institutional censorship is always bad no matter what organisation is endorsing or enforcing it.

[–]seddition 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Adding to that, the lines between government and big business are more blurred than a Robin Thicke song so corporate censorship and government censorship often go hand in hand. Look at what the major finance companies did to shut down Wikileaks when the government got all pissy about it.

[–]Dark triad expert: - http://illimitablemen.com/ - [3 Points]IllimitableMan 2 points3 points  (6 children)

Institutional censorship is always bad no matter what organisation is endorsing or enforcing it.

Unless they're censoring trolls/shills.

[–]Lt_Muffintoes 7 points8 points  (2 children)

If a community is vulnerable to them, it's not worth much. You can't troll mathematicians, because what they are discussing is rigorous and true. If the red pill is fundamentally true, trolling and shilling are very obvious.

[–]Cypher211 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I originally wrote a reply disagreeing with you but the more I think about it the more I agree - that's a fair point.

[–]longerdistance 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In many places on the internet "troll" has become synonymous with "someone who disagrees with me".

Don't underestimate the ability of people to change the meaning of words to fit their agenda.

[–]tones2013 5 points6 points  (0 children)

up until recently reddit represented itself as being very libertarian and a haven for free speech. But now its owned by a big company thats image conscious. And they got pretty damn big and rich by representing themselves as such. Reddit wouldnt exist today if they had been censor happy in the beginning.

[–]aazav 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Then it's institution sponsored censorship, with Reddit being the censor.

[–]ThePedanticCynic 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Corporations run the world, not governments.

Read the second and third books of the Foundation series. The Mule and the Trade Federation. That's where we are now.

I don't know who the Mule is in this analogy, but we have plenty of corporate interests running the US; and they're not even hiding it anymore. That's how in control they are.

[–]occupythekitchen 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah but reddit is successful because it gives different people different safe heaven for different people to discuss their opinions. They could censor theredpill to not go to r!front but other than that is bullshit

[–]Anderfail 25 points26 points  (7 children)

Come on man, you do realize they want to get this shit codified into fucking law right? These people are authoritarian and want total control over you and your own thoughts. Their endgame literally IS 1984 where you will go to prison for "wrongthink". Blow them off at your own mercy, but I won't be sticking my head in the sand.

[–]Dark triad expert: - http://illimitablemen.com/ - [3 Points]IllimitableMan 22 points23 points  (6 children)

All hail the second amendment! It was designed as a defence against such tyranny. Lock and load boys. The founding fathers would be disgusted.

[–]maladyman 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Fuck the zombie kings. Our rights only exist in the effect that we can enforce them.

[–]Dark triad expert: - http://illimitablemen.com/ - [3 Points]IllimitableMan 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Grab yer pitchforks guns afforded to you by the zombie kings then!

[–]ShekelBanker 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I see your point but might I remind you not everyone's an American? I'd be looking into at least 8 years jail if the government finds out I own an AK from the 1989 revolution.

[–]SoupGuise 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]DrXaos 24 points25 points  (5 children)

The algorithm to determine what is allowed on its website will be governed 100% by the desire to monetize from mainstream advertisers.

That will be the exclusive arbiter: might these upset the sensibilities of any advertiser in Indiana or their customers? If so, it's out.

BTW the CEO of Reddit is suing a previous employer over sexual harassment and discrimination.

[–]1FatStig 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Women are the primary consumers. Anything that upsets their feelz will be banned.

[–]cos_2 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Yes, but Reddit is (supposedly) very much about free speech.

[–]Hajimotto 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Free speech only goes as far as I agree with the opinion stated.

[–]NS_white 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I'm sure he does. However, that doesn't mean we can't do something about it

[–]lolskaters 3 points4 points  (10 children)

Both SJWs and Nazis are/were very effective at censoring speech containing viewpoints differing from their own.

Pointing out the difference in the measures taken by each group to bring about that censorship shows that you are missing the point completely.

[–]1Dev_on 9 points10 points  (7 children)

I really wish we'd stop using the nazi comparison. It's become so cliche it's almost a meme at this point, pointing out hyperbolic rhetoric

surely you can find someone else in history other than the nazis and the commies who stifle speech

[–]lolskaters 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Yeah, the difference between nazis/commies and SJWs is that the only power the SJWs have are twitter campaigns that get the occasional Mozilla CEO fired.

[–]balalasaurus 18 points19 points  (2 children)

/u/3409852034 has thankfully compiled a handbook of Red Pill posts. Definitely worth checking out/ downloading.

This is exactly what happened with 4chan

Being offensive is the new being communist

McCarthyism witchunting in the 21st century

[–]bepdub 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Being offended is an internal emotional reaction. Proclaiming something offends you is proclaiming you aren't in control of your own emotions. Being offended is a CHOICE you make, on how you react to the world around you.

[–]HV123 9 points10 points  (0 children)

You hit the nail on the head with a massive sledge hammer.

The law, in the anglosphere, at least is massively shifting over to "offence" being an offence.

[–]LD_in_MT 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A lot of cool websites we're created by people in their 20's who were full of idealism. After a decade, many have decided it's time to move on/cash in. Corporations take over and all corporations can agree about is profit. You can say whatever you want so long as it doesn't threaten profitability.

[–]johnyann 56 points57 points  (4 children)

You guys need to understand that Reddit is a WONDERFUL mind control devise. The up votes and down votes are a fantastic way to dictate speech and popular opinion.

And don't tell me it isn't gamed every day.

Reddit just got an injection of like 40 million dollars, and moved to San Francisco. They need to monetize. Im almost positive that Reddit did some kind of deal with the DNC to get Obama to do an AMA.

This is only the first step. Next it's gonna be about protecting brands and services they're allied with.

[–]alphbux 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Wasn't part of the DoD or NSA actually staging downvotes and upvotes on particular things, not just on Reddit, but also YouTube and other things online?

[–]mickydonavan417 9 points10 points  (1 child)

That's how Justin Beiber got so many views for Baby.

God I love that song, it was my ringtone for like 6 months.

[–]iAmNotEdible 28 points29 points  (0 children)

This happened recently on Fark.com. At first, many simply made jokes about it I even made a few pics poking fun at it. Nothing major until the deletion of posts and temporary bans for anything someone found offensive. In the end, I decided to find a home elsewhere and ended up on Reddit.


Link for those who are interested in seeing the pics I made.


Edit: Corrected link formatting.

[–]curious97 14 points15 points  (6 children)

I would like to emphasize once more how important it is to backup the sidebar material/top posts. There is some excellent material on here and it would help the new website a lot if there was a foundation to build upon.

[–]Endorsed Contributorvacuu 13 points14 points  (1 child)

The top posts (even most of the upvoted posts, I'd argue) are where the gold is at. The sidebar is but a small fraction of the content, and is already available elsewhere on the web.

To lose the archive of posts here would be huge.

[–]Endorsed ContributorAerobus 13 points14 points  (2 children)

We need to start archiving some of the best posts of all time.

I will be able to help with this project in the near future.

[–]13409852034 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I've archived all the top posts in The Red Pill Handbook (www.redpillhandbook.com). If you have other links you want included, please let me know and I'll include them.

[–]DocObvious_ 25 points26 points  (1 child)

TRP won't be banned. We see it come up in media as being portrayed as the evil of al evils, the woman hating sludge fest, the self righteous man-disease cesspool... My bad bros, you get the idea.

The reality, we are 90k or more deep of endorsed contributors, frequent posters, non frequent posters, and lurkers.

I've seen post after post, compliments after thank you's after please help me's on this subreddit and its branch subs, that it's hard to even gerbil your way out of acknowledging the movement that is going on here.

I'm not talking about some woman hating movement either. I've said it before and I'll continue saying it. I like women, a lot even. I highly enjoy the company of women, but I hate forces that pull me from my own goals in life. It just so happens that women, when a sexual interest applies, brings forth the most bull shit I've ever experienced.

Anyway, I assume the administrators of reddit as a whole have spent some time here. I'd even venture a guess and say at least a few of them frequent this sub because they agree with it. They have alt usernames, they have proxy servers and VPNs they go through, but they're here.

They'll always be here and so will you after you've experienced reality. TRP will never go away.

[–]USNavySeal 14 points15 points  (0 children)

What an excellent post.

I feel like most of the hate the redpill gets is because the landing page is usually littered with noobs who write crap about how they fucked plates or treated women like shit. If only these morons would realize how fucking powerful RP is when you fully understand it.

I mean, my life has changed so drastically, I've actually completely changed my life. I get shivers when I think about what would have happened if RP hadn't saved me.

I agree with you when you say it won't go down. It's way too big.

How long will it be before reddit Is Tumblr 2.0

[–]KJL13 4 points5 points  (0 children)

About five minutes. There was someone on r/pf that claimed they were LGBT i.e. every one.

[–]1tombreck2 11 points12 points  (4 children)

That's the great thing about TRP; it isn't one single point of gathering because you can always go to Roissy, Rollo, Illumintable man, GLO has twitter, Roosh, etc.

If TRP gets banned then people will search the manosphere and find new blogs they didn't know existed

[–]Rathadin 12 points13 points  (0 children)

What makes this place valuable is that its on a massive site that everyone knows. I've only been using Reddit for a little over a year. I knew about "The Red Pill" in a vague sense... since I'd read Neil Strauss' The Game back in 2005, but I've found a ton of resources that I didn't know existed just from this subreddit alone.

Illumintable

Great fucking name! Looks AND sounds amazing. Illumintable. We need to get this shit in dictionaries.

[–]1tombreck2 3 points4 points  (1 child)

When I try to google your name/site it's an act of shame

Putting a women in charge of anything is usually a bad idea. They are followers, not leaders.

[–]randomtask2005 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Depends on your goal. Women are perfect for leading the fight in political battles. They argue over little things like "phrasing" which can be a massive deal in contracts. Consensus building or stakeholder analysis would work well for them too.

I would trust maybe a handful of the women I know in a leadership position (as in two). Mostly because they don't act like women in the office. It's all business.

[–]AntixD 32 points33 points  (6 children)

we don't harass anyone,it's when they visit here and fuck with us and we fuck them back up,that's not harassment,that's poking the bear,if they don't like us don't visit here,simple

[–]1trplurker 54 points55 points  (4 children)

From their point of view, you having an idea that is contradictory to theirs and sharing that idea is harassment. You could be in the middle of a forest with your guy friends talking RP shit and a feminist in New York city will say your harassing her. That is how fucked up the post-modern progressive thinking is.

[–]longerdistance 2 points3 points  (3 children)

post-modern progressive thinking

Maybe today, but the real common denominator is that it's the thinking of any ideology based on lies. Because to such an ideology, like feminism or fundamentalist religion, it is essential that everyone believes the lies.

They cannot defend their ideas logically so even someone just disagreeing with them is a threat to their ideology and fake peace of mind. To save the ideological consensus their will have to "remove" the threat in whatever way is convenient.

[–]sweetleef 6 points7 points  (0 children)

If you are pushing an illogical agenda, eventually people realize it's illogical and reject it. At that point, you have to resort to force to make them obey. The force available here is to ban the speech.

Communism, cults, doctrinal religions, wars for profit, fiat currencies, militant feminism, etc. - same scheme, different labels.

[–]squiremarcus 9 points10 points  (5 children)

Reddits format isn't really complex. How difficult would it be to make a Reddit clone.

[–]csehszlovakze 11 points12 points  (3 children)

the whole source code is on github, and there's Voat which advertises itself to be SJW-free

[–]squiremarcus 2 points3 points  (2 children)

made a voat account, any idea what traffic the site gets?

[–]sweetleef 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Voat

I like the look of it. I'd be happy to use Voat, if it means even a brief escape from the screeching SJWs and perpetual victims that reddit is infested with.

reddit looks close to reaching critical mass and pulling a digg - it seems to happen to all forums and "social media" sites eventually. Once they get big enough, the mods get really full of themselves and power-drunk, and start forcing their own vision on everybody. Look for some new "big site upgrade" with a layout change or "reddit 2.0" or some such bullshit as a signal to jump ship.

[–]squiremarcus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]WaynesCotting[S] 49 points50 points  (11 children)

I see, it's http://www.puerarchy.com. Am I missing something though? It doesn't look like a user forum where everyone is equal, which is what makes TRP so great. Instead it seems like an entity controls the content of the site rather than the collective users.

I don't want someone lecturing to me, I want a community hub.

[–]Garl_Vinland 26 points27 points  (10 children)

/u/redpillschool (the top mod here) runs it. There has been a lot of talk in the past about adding a forum like feature to it. If TRP goes down go there for news.

[–]csehszlovakze 7 points8 points  (5 children)

The site needs phpbb badly. It's an older forum engine but as a normal user I had no problems with it.

It's just our offsite meeting place, new forums will be either hosted or announced there.

[–]1trplurker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Anyway to get https support for it cause most workplaces will have its http version banned. Bluecoat is pretty liberal is how they define "political activism".

[–]NeoreactionSafe 18 points19 points  (2 children)

I've seen this happen before.

The original site goes down... the new one gets newly populated.

The new site becomes popular.

The original site comes back, but by then the new one is preferred.

Will go to new site when "it happens".

        Fuck 'em. Let's up the ante. Reddit's peaking anyway.

        Who wants to build some new shit?

        [–]Jehosh 7 points8 points  (4 children)

        Perhaps this is a blessing in disguise? While I am grateful to the awakening that TRP has provided me, staying online when I could be reading, lifting, or otherwise improving my life is somewhat counterproductive to the heart of TRP.

        On another note, what's stopping we, the members of TRP from developing our own website that serves as the new hub of all TRP knowledge and discussion? At this point, Reddit only serves as a vehicle to TRP to me, and it would be quite convenient having our own website.

        [–]Cloughtower 3 points4 points  (3 children)

        You know what's funny, now that you mention it, here in trp we don't have to worry about each other because most of us are on the same page. Sure we have some new guys passing the anger stage but usually they chill out. Feminism however is just a train wreck. There is so much disennsion and anger there all the time it's like a hive of yellow jackets. Basically trp has been very stable in its agenda and all the accusations people make against hardly ever stick.

        [–]Neo-ReactionaryHarry 4 points5 points  (2 children)

        To answer the real question, where should we go, I have a list:

        1) Rollo's Blog

        2) ReturnofKings Blog

        3) Heartiste

        4) BoldandDetermined

        5) Youtube

        [–]∞ Red Pill VisionaryRollo-Tomassi 4 points5 points  (0 children)

        Just a quick note here, TRP subscription is only 4,229 away from 100K now.

        The Rational Male is averaging half a million views per month. No advertising, no monetization and no compromising Red Pill truths.

        Reddit may not miss TRP, but there will be another dedicated forum. If nothing else, I'll see to it personally.

        [–]AlwaysBulking1 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        "limiting site freedoms against people or groups deemed offensive" I think the key word here is offensive. It doesn't matter to them whether something is correct or incorrect, if something is correct and hurts their feels it needs to be banned. How very progressive of them.

        [–]TerryYockey 3 points4 points  (1 child)

        I think the poster child the SJW's had in mind was that colossal toolbag who was constantly posting in here (AppleNewton) calling any man who disagreed with him "faggot", "moron", "pussy" etc. and immediately attacking any woman who posted (rare, but still) with "cunt", "bitch", "whore", etc. and harassing them into quitting the sub.

        That knuckle dragging neanderthal fancied himself as a "big dawg", a true "alpha". He was so delusional it was as painful as it was comical. His every word and action was completely contrary to the values of this sub.

        He even went as far as to post a link to a females user's nudes she'd sent him when she stopped being receptive.

        Finally the POS got shadowbanned by the admins. But why he was allowed to carry on in here for as long as he did is entirely beyond me - but I'm certain it's the anomalies like him that the SJW's and detractors like to point out when making their "case".

        [–]EurasianAesthetics 3 points4 points  (2 children)

        Who cares if it gets banned. You can't stop the tide of feminism, the battle is lost. It's a natural process in humanities progression through time. Let nature go its ways and watch the world burn.

        [–]we_kill_creativity 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        The same thing was being talked about on r/conspiracy. If some of you missed it, there was a really creepy thing the admins did recently regarding a post about nothing more than a building that called itself a daycare.

        The post didn't even start on r/conspiracy, but rather r/saltlakecity (of all places). There was a building which claimed to be a daycare, but no resident of the city can recall ever seeing a child outside. It was deleted there by the mods. I mean every fucking comment, no matter how harmless, because they claimed people were harassing the "business", which they weren't.

        I don't intend to go into all the details, as that's not my point. My point is this: how the admins will delete a post and even the mods can't do shit about it. (In fact, if this post ends up becoming another discussion of that daycare, the entire post may be deleted, so be careful and wise)

        So the original post gets deleted from r/saltlakecity by the mods (that's important to remember, by the mods), and then the conversation migrates to r/conspiracy and becomes pretty popular there.

        There ended up being 2-3 posts about it, because somehow they kept getting deleted, and it wasn't by the mods. I was talking to the mods about it, and they weren't sure if it was a malfunction of a spam filter, or just the admins removing it for god knows what reason, so the mods put them back up, BUT! ... all pending finding out if the admins removed it.

        Because, and this is my whole point, if the admins remove a post there is jack...fucking...shit....that any mod can do about it.

        The end of the r/conspiracy story is such...

        The mods stickied a post to the top of r/conspiracy stating, in no uncertain terms, that they all personally disagreed with the removal of the posts, but there was literally nothing they could do about it.

        So basically, the idea that we should prepare for a rule/policy change or whatever is already a moot point because IT'S ALREADY HAPPENING...

        Just wanted to let you know.

        [–]1TheReason13 3 points4 points  (1 child)

        Successful advocates of truth are those who kept their forbidden knowledge to themselves and formed secret societies and organizations. These people learned from the mistakes of their fathers that any attempt at enlightening and educating the masses would end in ridicule and inquisition.

        The "freemasons" for example are some of the most powerful, and also the most wealthy people on this planet. Their had been a time when this organization literally manipulated populations to their will. The secret to their wealth is merely knowledge of the realities of this world, knowledge they've been groomed from early ages to accept and master. Much like us here at TRP.

        Our exile is inevitable, its simply a matter of time. What troubles me is whether we will disperse or regroup at a bigger, more independent, more private, more organized base.

        There has never been a future for us at reddit, our future is dependent on our independence and reddit can not offer that. We need to leave here anyway.

        [–]Arvresit 8 points9 points  (6 children)

        Why not make a redpill board on 8chan.

        [–]UGoBoom 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        A few months back, someone did.

        It's just a bunch of shit posts right now, but it could be a destination.

        [–]Involution88 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        Won't work. It would be like setting up a trade school in a circus. Nothing against trade schools or circuses.

        hint: shitredditsays and shit4chansays were started by the same kinds of people. The two communities have grown in completely different directions and they ended up having virtually nothing in common. A /redpill board on 8chan would probably devolve into a bunch of shitposts.

        4chan/8chan run on very basic things. Asinine comments about dubs. Using offensive words to death. General idiocy. They run on kek. Let them eat kek. You get the idea.

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBiX4XS9HQQ

        4chan/8chan are great. They are great at organising grassroots movements. To the point where astroturfing is their biggest problem. They are great at taking on the MSM. They are retarded when it comes to developing an ideology or sending a cohesive signal.

        [–]Ojisan1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Honestly the format of a reddit-style site is so much more conducive to the type of conversation and posts that happen here, versus 4chan-style sites.

        Someone suggested a more reddit-like option, personally I would prefer that, or even a slashdot-style site.

        If this were a democracy that's what I would vote for, but I have faith that this sub has some excellent moderators who I think will work something suitable out. Reddit cannot kill this idea of TRP, and any wound they inflict (banning this sub) will be temporary at worst.

        [–]bkmnalpha 3 points4 points  (4 children)

        is there any way to download a mini-version of TRP and put it in a torrent? or at least the top 100 or so posts

        [–]Cypher211 5 points6 points  (2 children)

        It's not just the content though. People come here for the discussions and interaction with people of a similar mindset. If the 'social aspect' (for want of a better phrase) goes away then that's a problem in and of itself.

        There's nothing wrong with backing up content though either. There's some great posts on here that I'd like to archive. I guess I could just go back through them and copy-paste the raw text if I have to...

        [–]bkmnalpha 2 points3 points  (1 child)

        if these subreddit gets closed down, it will be like a slap to the face

        i already know that most people dont have a stand on anything , no frame , no nothing, and sjw are using that fact, but deep inside i want to believe that people will see what is right and stand for it

        but with the closing of this sub i know that we are meant to be lone wolfs, personal success is our only goal , not improving society/other people

        i know i sound like a drama queen, but fuck it, if this subreddit gets closed it is a time to be sad

                  The thing is, reddit is a hip and fun place to discuss ideas and stuff like that, but in the end, they make no guarantee, literal or implied, that your free speech will be protected. I mean hell, whoever owns it could shut the servers down tomorrow if they so choose.

                  People always act like they owe us free account holders some pure, free speech forum where censorship is strictly prohibited. Yes, reddit has taken a stance against censorship in the past, but once again, they don't owe us jack shit, and can do as they damn well please.

                  The thing is, if TRP was just a group of idiotic chauvinists, we wouldn't be drawing the heat. A lot of guys are sick of their shake in the sexual market and start learning strategy to improve their lot. We don't want to become Japan. So even if the website owners do shut down our nice free forum here, I think the ideas are out there already. The words already out that some guys are reinventing the game.

                  [–]UniversityofToronto 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                  Admins and mods, please find another area with similar capabilities to Reddit in terms of user contribution, posting, and voting. Preferably, please set this up now, before TRP gets shut down. Having a back up area that users know about (right at this moment) I feel is crucial.

                  Moreover, perhaps every user here, who has posted a good post (with more than say, 200 upvotes) can help by making a snapshot of those posts in case we would ever like to reupload them.

                  Ultimately, it doesn't matter what TRP actually is, all that matters is how the public perceives TRP that Reddit cares about. Reddit is a business. If they get bad press for hosting something that everyone thinks is subreddit for abuse, then they're going to ban that subreddit whether or not that's true.

                  Acting now is critical.

                  And thanks again to the leaders in this sub for their work.

                  make a board on 8chan (8ch.net). everything that isnt illegal is allowed there, no accounts needed to post, and it has a big community already. you make your own boards, just like a subreddit.

                  [–]Redpillc0re 2 points3 points  (3 children)

                  Well what did you expect guys. It seems to me the - once to be admired- US culture has really gone down the drain over there.

                  From the moment your society accepted "Trigger warning" (the idea that language should not evoke some feelings) all i m thinking is that the hopeful, optimistic days when the Internet was the ultimate freeing medium are over. It will start with systemic attempts to ban all provocative speech on websites, and then move to a higher level, cutting off the internet access to anyone who dares to say something that someone somewhere might not like.

                  The "no harassment" movement is the equivalent of the "occupy" movement. Both are deeply evil for the same reason: they do not allow others to get what they do not have themselves; "if i am lazy and can't make money, nobody should" / "if i don't like this idea, nobody should". Unless somebody crushes those retards with vengeance, they will win, because they act like a mob of sheep.

                  I don't think the sub will be banned over something like this. The only subs that have been banned in my knowledge were subs for which the legality of the content was highly debatable, like /r/jailbait. Reddit and most online communities usually do support freedom of speech, in the true sense of the term.

                  [–]eatingonthetoilet 27 points28 points  (4 children)
