Waking Up To The Wasteland – Fallout 4 And MGTOW In The Modern Day

At the beginning of Fallout 4, your main character and his wife and child are fortunately spared from a nuclear attack by gaining last-minute entrance into a vault, and are then placed under cryogenic sleep until the all-clear signal above ground. However, your character wakes up to an actual nightmare as he not only witnesses his child being kidnapped, but his wife also being murdered, with no ability to stop it as he watches from his pod.

This ordeal is the same for the formerly asleep blue pill man who wakes up to the reality and necessity of MGTOW: Your children can be taken and used against you through custody and child support laws, and feminism has killed the home-maker wife archetype men of previous ages enjoyed.

In Fallout 4, it was a vault scientist that allowed the kidnapper and murderer in your midst while you slept. And so has The State, slowly chipping away at the everyday rights and interests of man in favor of the now much larger female voter class.

Unlike Fallout, where all of civilization flips on its head in an instant after the bomb was dropped, our civilization has been in a much slower decay, which has confused society to what exactly is the cause of it’s deterioration, especially since remnants of our former peaks still linger.

In Fallout, their culture had been permanently frozen in the 1950’s up until the war (year 2077), and so is the mindset of the Blue Pill man who is still clinging on to the wife-and-kids dreams of old.

That dream has been dead for a long time for the average man, but without anything being as conclusive as a bomb drop, they will venture out into the wasteland never knowing the difference.

Out Of The Vault And Into The Wasteland

The Vault is a symbol for the transformation process a man undergoes after taking the Red Pill. His old life has been completely destroyed, and the new one waiting for him above ground is so detached from anything he used to understand. There are completely new rules, new enemies, and new goals in the wasteland now.

Some men don’t even make it out of the Vault though. The sole survivor in Fallout 4 finds a pistol on a desk. The game doesn’t let you decide, but realistically, a man in that situation, with everything he loved and the life he built taken away from him, would be faced with the hard decision of using the gun either on himself, or as a tool to keep moving forward.

Men taking the Red Pill also face this scenario, experiencing a similar loss, whether directly, through the court system, or indirectly, by acknowledging the risks involved making the juice not worth the squeeze.

In the Blue Pill paradigm, being a family man is the greatest story ever told, and the men who can’t get out of the depression phase are the ones that found their stories too difficult to re-write.

But getting out of the Vault is only half the battle. The Red Pill and the wasteland is a new world which requires a new personality. Some men retain their dignity, but many others remain in the Red Pill Rage phase. These are the Raiders or Bad Karma players in Fallout, uninterested in rebuilding their happiness on their own, and instead depend on taking it away from others to survive.

It’s this group of men that give MGTOW a bad name. They claim to have gone their own way, yet the majority of their time is not spent on themselves but on bashing the men and women not congruent to their paradigm.

But it’s hard to blame them. After all, nature has mutated and irradiated out in the wasteland. Because of feminism, the modern woman is now radioactive. MGTOW and Red Pill knowledge are like the Rad-X and Rad-Away products in the game that protect you from radiation poisoning.

But the Blue Pill man will notice nothing wrong about his current situation. He will feel sick and not know why while salvaging what he can from the wasteland. Meanwhile, as a MGTOW, your Geiger-counter will be off the charts, mitigating or avoiding the dangers altogether.

The New Currency

In Fallout, wads of dollar bills are now just a novelty item, as commerce is now conducted through bottle caps. For the MGTOW out in the wasteland of modernity, his new currency is freedom (of time and space).

You see, freedom was a commodity that the Blue Pill man was willing to trade in order to acquire a family. But when the bomb is dropped on him, genuine fiat currency is also no longer viable, as half of it is taken through divorce and then further stolen from him in installments for alimony and child support. If he’s still standing, however, he’ll have the opportunity to rebuild himself using the new currency mentioned above.

The men who struggle to self-actualize as MGTOW are the ones who still have not adopted this new market and currency, fueling their belief of dearth and destitution. Yes, the wasteland won’t offer the previous forms of entertainment you once enjoyed, but in return it offers you clarity, as one can now view human existence in its truest form.

In Fallout, daily life is reduced to its essentials, and likewise, as a man living on his own, he naturally becomes a minimalist. Bachelorhood does protect you from the frivolous spending habits of a wife and children. But going further from this, not needing female validation will extend to disassociating from all forms of validation. The money you spend, the time you spend, the space you require and the responsibilities you are assigned are now completely genuine and solely derived from you, and not compromised from the various influences you once suffered living in the Blue Pill world.

You become successful in the wasteland as soon as you realize that what you once owned was just baggage, and what you sought after was illusion. Requiring less to live, and a much narrower focus (yourself) gives you more access to the truth, knowledge of self, and the real happiness of life.

This inspiration for this article. I first considered writing about Fallout 4 from a game design perspective, but now I see there’s a real fun and challenge to see MGTOW in all things.

Decoupling Love and Marriage; Destruction of The Family via Individualism – MGTOW

It should have been around 23 years old when I realized the exhaustiveness of the dating and family world.

Not only was I meant to generate a high enough income to support the 4+ children I wanted to have with a stay at home wife, but I also realized there were just way too many women to choose from, especially after becoming friends with English speaking girls around the world.

It was then that I appreciated the benefits of an arranged marriage. The choice would be made for me, and I would happily accept it, because the choice would not be arbitrarily made out of “love”, but for the duty of family.

Marriage was a stronger institution back then. It was controlled by the father, who was the head of the family, and the young couple could be a bridge to unite families. The right marriage could even form powerful alliances between kingdoms and nations.

But that’s all lost for now, all because of love.

Dowry and bride prices,, which are gifts awarded to the bride or her family, by the groom or the parents of the married couple, aren’t paid out anymore, and less parental involvement means less risk and incentive incurred for the family by the practice of marriage.

A man and woman who decide to get married today are completely on their own, which is in line with this new manufacturing of the nuclear family, and if that marriage fails, either by death or divorce, there is little to no security for the couple.

Especially in the case of divorce, where the husband bears most of the responsibility through alimony, child support, and even legal fees, despite our advancements in gender equality.

Events like these were foreseen and paid for in advance in ancient times.

As women were not usually recipients of inheritance, a husband was sometimes not even legally permitted to access the dowry account of his wife. In turn, bride prices could also be refunded back to the groom from the bride’s family if the marriage dissolved.

Love still existed back then; it just had to be paid for in advance.

The practice of marriage today persists on love and faith alone. In other words, marriage and families are financed on credit.

The family used to be the most basic unit of society.

As most of the rights were granted to the father, they functioned like small governments, and with enough resources as land owning farmers, they were completely self-sufficient.

But what interests me the most was this alliance between families, as well as fathers being intent on passing down their family name through having male successors.

But with the proliferation of feminism and individualism, there appears to be less emphasis on family. The State is quite content with the individual being the basic unit of society as a wage just needs to be earned for taxable income, and low birth rates will be circumvented through immigration.

If we still had extended families, we could completely do away with welfare, even public education.

But I believe the incentive for breaking extended family units apart into smaller families is to extract more opportunity for consumerism. Now families need a separate house, car, food, and utilities for each branch of the family instead of one big shared home that reduces costs by combining resources and dividing the labor.

The State wants to keep the family isolated, even willing to reduce it down to a single parent household, even though the children of such upbringings are more likely to have developmental problems that brings down the overall quality of the society with increased statistical likelihood of drug use and crime.

I believe this destruction of the family must be sought after via greed for either money or power, because as stated earlier, a large family can be quite self-sufficient, not participating as heavily in the economy as the nuclear family, and as they function as their own small governments, the larger a family becomes, they could even rival the power of the main government.

Case in point: The Medici family of Italy.

What Should Be Done? How Do I Feel About It?

“The strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home” – Confucius

I believe the easiest way to restore society would be to restore the family, but I am unsure how to personally get involved with that.

When I look at my family, I don’t see anything close to the seeds of a powerful political family developing among us, especially since I was also not treated like I was truly meant to be a propagator of the family name and prince heir to the throne.

In fact, my grandfather’s family name only has six male descendants, and three of them appear to be MGTOW.

I am considering changing my last name, either to fully embrace individualism or out of spite because I romanticize the family customs of old.

I could participate more within my family and intend to repair this societal dysfunction by making an extension and start my own family, but there just aren’t any legal or social protections for me to keep my assets under my control.

Even if I were to avoid marriage through the State, children are very often considered property of the mother, and women, the voting majority, function more like the real wives of the State.

The answer to all our modern problems may not be to revert to traditionalism. For instance, more families would mean more increases to the population, and I believe we already have enough to have our fun for now on planet Earth. We could truly skip a generation.

A sophisticated modern solution is going to require a complete adoption of individualism but must also be savvy enough to be a step ahead of society and challenge the powers that be.

I believe that solution right now is MGTOW.

At the very least, since the losses of society seem to be socialized, it is vital not to continue contributing to the growth of the welfare state (i.e. do not create more single mothers).

MGTOW men would also be able to amass personal wealth by not diverting their assets through marriage and parenthood.

The only action left would be to somehow get these men to combine their power to challenge the current institutions of authority.

In an individualist society, organization like this doesn’t seem likely. But the alternative, marriages secured by nothing but love and faith alone, and family legacies that vanish within vacuums, will slowly lose its appeal.

More men will go their own way. Will they work together, though? That’s a question for another day.

But with 30% of children belonging to single-parent families, our old concepts of love, marriage, and family, are very close to being dead.
