This would be an excellent idea.

[–]pjewa[S] 13 points14 points  (17 children)

Thanks. I'm definitely going to do it. Now...when to start. Tomorrow? Monday?

[–]1ron_giant 34 points35 points  (2 children)

Whatever you do make the titles consistent so we can search for them easily.

[–]edmproducerXX 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Exacly ! I suggest using a generic title and changing the subtitle example.

48 Laws of Power series. Day 1

48 Laws of Power series. Day 2

and so on

48 Laws of Power series. Day 1 (LAW NAME)

[–]AtticusWarhol 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Start now. No procrastination. I've read this book along with Greenes other books. Definitely worth discussing

[–]pjewa[S] 15 points16 points  (3 children)

No procrastination! Just want to time it right. First post will be Saturday morning.

[–]redcamo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

awesome idea, please follow through!

[–]ImpalaPUA 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Let's do it, I'm ready to read

[–]17 Endorsed ContributorHumanSockPuppet 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Like 1ron_giant said, please come up with a naming convention and name each post consistently so they are easy to find later via search.

Great idea. Looking forward to the ensuing discussion.

Edit: Maybe call it "48 Days of Power"?

[–]pjewa[S] 13 points14 points  (3 children)

How about [48DOP] ? Short for 48 days of power

[–]let_terror_reign 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think this is a great name.

[–]KillYourselfLiving 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Let's move this to another subreddit for an easier communication and organization.

I just created /r/The48LawsOfPower/

If anyone happens to have a homepage where he can set up a forum, we could use that too.

What are your thoughts on this?

[–]Goupidan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Please wait a few days while I order it!!

[–]rphessian 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I certainly wouldn't mind seeing this. Might help clear up a lot of stuff for people if each law is explained in depth.

[–]magicalbird 11 points12 points  (0 children)

It would be cool to have a master series post on the sidebar.

Each day one law would be discussed for 48 days.

As an avid fan of the book I'd add in my insight as well.

[–]Dark triad expert: - http://illimitablemen.com/ - [3 Points]IllimitableMan 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It'll be a long time until I finish my deep essays on each law. Naturally, that'll take far longer than 48 days to achieve. Be good to see what the rest of the sub thinks and says about the laws. From the various discussions I've had with people, it seems a lot of people who have read the book have a poor understanding of the laws. People seemed to enjoy the book, but struggle to apply it to their lives beyond the basics, eg: "say less than necessary." Which is of course a straightforward, self-explanatory law.

[–]3kempff 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Yes.

I've been thinking about this kind of thing for a long time. I'd like to see, for example, months or weekends designated as themed (cf. The recent "Redpill Theory Weekend"), or a sort of Lectionary Cycle through the sidebar, where people cooperate on commenting on a planned curriculum of readings.

Speaking in practical terms, however, I wonder whether daily would be too often. What do you think about setting aside just Monday evenings, for example, instead? Would that take too long?

I'm with you on this. 48 Laws has always struck me as a sort of redpill bedtime-storybook. How about creating a youtube channel featuring yourself reading a chapter per video, so I can tuck myself in, listening to anecdotes about Ivan the Terrible and Ninon de Lenclos (Law 31), and then you can give us a virtual kiss on the forehead and turn off the light? I hope there wouldn't be any copyright issues. You could start a thread by posting a link to your video and over the next several weeknights we could have a discussion about that chapter/theme. This would fit neatly into a calendar year, at 48 weeks, with breaks over holidays.

[–]pjewa[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'd love to do a dramatic read but...dat doxxing....

[–]PabloEasyGo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This sounds like something a lot of people could benefit from, including myself, i´d say lets do it

[–]Dillett7799 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'd recommend a sub reddit for it

[–]mykonos_rm 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Everytime I see Tesla placed on some nerdfetish pedestal online I always think of that book and remember what an alpha Edison was.

[–]praiseth3sun 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One more vote for yes from me.

[–]the_hibachi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'd love to see this. Easily digestible way to approach the book

[–]GuidoBandito 1 point2 points  (1 child)

As I'm beginning to read the book, I think having an intelligent discussion would be fantastic. I'd also like to see the posts consistently titled for easy search.

[–]pjewa[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'd start them all with [48LOP] for this exact reason!

[–]down_with_whomever 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would definitely participate in that

[–]Rise80 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sounds good, I'm looking forward to it.

[–]RP-on-AF1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sounds like a great excuse for me to go back through the book.

There's a small portion of hip-hop that hasn't been infiltrated by actors or SJW's, worth a listen.

[–]Gierfarmer 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Wonderful read, if you enjoyed 48 laws of power you should read Mastery; the most powerful law. Same author, life changing book honestly.

[–]MisterMisfit 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I believe I'm not being dramatic when I say 48 Laws has changed my life. I read some good reviews about Mastery, but how does it compare with 48 Laws?

[–]KillYourselfLiving 1 point2 points  (1 child)

If you lack direction in life or if you intend to become the best at something I recommend it.

In my opinion you get a better return on time investment if you reread the 48 laws of power. Actually I would advise you to take a look at the 3 summaries I have posted in /r/the48lawsofpower

[–]Gierfarmer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to struggle with meth addiction and didn't really have any direction in life. After reading this I recovered cold turkey and redefined what was important in life. This book lead to my desire to Pursue a career in psychology. I would say it's life changing as well.

[–]Adrian_mx 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Im currently reading this book. If we do this, ill be wanting to keep all the discussion so I can read it after I've read the entire book to see how people take each law differently

[–]pjewa[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's already begun!

When it's all over it will be cool to have them archived for future reference.

[–]TRPFlame 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is a great idea. As someone who has read the book several times, I will happily contribute to the discussion.

[–]olympuscomeback 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Book was a massive game changer for me and glad to have read it so young. It opened my eyes to what had been done to me in the past in regards to people taking advantage of me socially. I am still developing and have long ways to go before I consider myself to be a high SMV male but the book was a step in the right direction for me. Searching for that book and discussions on it on Reddit are what brought me to this sub where I read the material for a month or so before finally subscribing.

[–]a_murderer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think this would be a great contribution to the sub.

[–]SilverWolfeBlade 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do it. Its things like this, self improvement, and discussion that allows a person to grow

[–]JeremyTiki 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think this would be an excellent idea, esspically for new members.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

48 days of Christmas Power Countdown!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Great ideia. Im almost fininshing the book and I gotta say it was one of the best books I have ever read. A discussion would be excellent

[–]Gabe6678 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There are so many different anecdotes and beliefs in this thread. For some people, porn is detrimental. For others, it's no big deal. I think a good rule is that if you're spending more than 30 mins watching porn, you should probably reconsider.

[–]Transmigratory 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think this is a brilliant idea. For those of us who lack a sort of "structure" or reference point for RP and RP examples, this series would be perfect. Greene is a RP strategist any serious RPer should look up to.

[–]Entrefut 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would love this. Getting the laws into the minds of TRP contrubutors and having constructive debates/ field reports using those laws would benefit this thread

[–]HeadingRed 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh that's a good one. A big vote for yes.

[–]anonlymouse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

new year's resolutions.

New Years resolutions are shit. Start today. Unless some idea comes to you on 1 Jan, but then it's still not a NYR.

[–]Ripstar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think this is a very good idea and this book is a very good staple to review for most any professional.

[–]armenia4ever 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm really interested in this. I found the audiobook of this online and I'm desperate for some actual discussion and ideas on application.

[–]2RedPillSafe -1 points0 points  (4 children)

A very good idea.

Make sure that your title is formatted the same way each day so that it's clear you are building a series of posts from the same author.

Maybe some special characters in front:

√ π. § Δ

...just use some artistic skill and make it memorable.

[–]Upvote Me!trpbot[M] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

You cannot award OP a point because you are not an Endorsed Contributor or your point score is below 5.

[–]2RedPillSafe 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Hmmmm... I may have found an odd glitch.

Was playing with special characters and triggered a bot.

I guess the OP should be careful to choose formatting that doesn't cause problems.

[–]Dark triad expert: - http://illimitablemen.com/ - [3 Points]IllimitableMan 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Δ

Looks like that needs deprogramming out of the bot.

Summoning /u/redpillschool to take a look.

[–]2 Mredpillschool 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I left the delta in, just for backwards compatibility.
