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.

MGTOW Is Not The Means, But The End (Immortal Mindz Response)

The following article is a series of responses to a comment chain found from this video:

Of all the MGTOW videos in my favorites playlist, I feature Immortal Mindz (AKA Soul Immortal) the most.

The man is a wizard of the mind, a monk mode expert, and esoteric philosopher. I think very few other MGTOW will be able to comprehend or convey the significance of walking the solitary path. Soul once compared it to Santiago leaving Fatima in The Alchemist.

But to Soul, Monk Mode is only a temporary journey. While I don’t believe he will ever re-marry, he has created a potential blind spot for future dating with his 95/5 categorization of women.

This “virtuous woman” (aka NAWALT) occupies 5% of the total female population. However, he has stated that in modern times, the actual population the average man has access to is at or below 1% , as the other women in the 5% category currently belong to mostly isolated communities like the Amish, African Tribes, the Nunnery, etc.

Since the beginning, Soul has always been a believer in “raising one’s vibration” and Positive Thinking, and he claims that as soon as he spoke his 95/5 theory into existence, he suddenly began to see more of these favorable women appear in his life.

Now here’s the danger. Soul could very well be a Monk for the rest of his life, so he can simply observe and spout these theories without any harm to himself, and even if he leaves Monk Mode, he still has a wealth of experience to draw from, but his followers might not share the same level of sophistication. Men very early in their stages of rebuilding during the MGTOW Red Pill may cling towards any rationalization they can to keep women on a pedestal and never go down the lone road of the Monk.

Last year he made a new YouTube channel, and since then, more women and purple pill men have been occupying the comments section. I salute the man, but Iron Sharpeneth Iron, as he said, and so I must deem that his space is no longer a MGTOW refuge.

The Comment Chain

Charl was among other MGTOW men still stuck in the red-pill rage phase, and cases like him are why I decided to make MGTOW content, because there is a great lack of Monk Mode content available for those men to envision a productive path forward.

General MGTOW does do incredibly well with enlightening men on the pitfalls of dating and relationships, but it’s Monk Mode MGTOW that illuminates the path of self-actualization that comes after that.

If Charl had followed people within my circle, he would have learned that after taking the Red Pill, the best thing to look forward to is yourself, your own freedom, and the new possibilities for growth within your character.

Stranahan was correct to say that Charl is in the beginning stage of Red Pill, specifically the bargaining phase of the grief cycle, and needs to work on self-love because even though he has a desire for self-improvement, his focus is still outward on finding this 5% NAWALT.

The method he is employing to find her is also questionable, and it’s the exact sort of Positive Thinking tactics I said Immortal Mindz’ followers would find themselves in trouble with.

Soul did develop the 95/5 concept from the observations of healthier relationships from older men and women and combining it with his own experience, but Soul himself is of an older generation.

For the younger guys, this <1% NAWALT population is shrinking by the day.

Listen, I’ve read As A Man Thinketh. I absolutely love the quote “Man does not attract that which he wants, he attracts that which he is.” However, I don’t think it applies when you are trying to attract people, because people have much more personal agency than to be treated like objects in this way, and besides that, there is no guarantee that when you raise your vibration you won’t end up attracting the wrong type of people in your direction that may want to steal energy from you instead of building on it.

Soul has always said that women are never meant to be pursued, only attracted. But if a man enters cocoon mode for the sole intent of later attracting a worthy mate, I will go as far to say that his pursuit of women has never ended; It remained as a spiritual longing even though it temporarily ceased in the physical.

Even when told of the possibilities of a fulfilling life outside of relationships, Charl’s response still revolves around women. His future depends on the quality of women available, and not solely on the quality of man he wants to become. This is the key difference between all the shades of blue and red pill, and the man that has decided to go monk.

This is why I say MGTOW is above Red Pill.

Red Pill is simply the knowledge of female nature, but MGTOW is about your own nature, possibly extending to all of nature, and the road to mastering it.


You don’t have to be celibate to be considered MGTOW. We’re not in the business of denying men of their comforts and privileges; we’re about maximizing personal freedom. Some of us men have realized that relationships with women could be a compromise to that freedom. It has absolutely nothing to do with having the strength or weakness to engage with women.

There is absolutely nothing pathetic about a formerly married man admitting that after his divorce and finding MGTOW, he has had his fill with women and now wants to move on to living a solitary life. I can’t even begin to describe how distorted your views must be look down on a man like this. Even if you meant for this label to only be extended to never-married men, it’s still wrong to associate a man’s self worth to his relations with women.

It was at this point that I decided to contribute to the discussion, and specifically call out the 95/5 as yet another fancy packaging for the NAWALT blue pill.

The reasons I wanted him to reply specifically after he moved in with his unicorn were because:

  1. That’s what I expect a Blue Pill man to do.
  2. I suspected he hasn’t found his 5% yet; it was food for thought.

Men and women are fundamentally different, and that’s why I implied there will be some level of maintenance, which can also extend to compromise. It’s called a sexual marketplace for a reason, for the fact that it denotes the interactions of men and women are always involving some form of exchange.

It’s just economics. No amount of positive thinking is going to change the fact that we live in a world of limited resources. Your time, freedom, and youth, are all limited resources. Everything has an opportunity cost.

I will close with wise words from Immortal Mindz:

Many of these men who are letting go of MGTOW will unfortunately be returning to just another shade of Blue Pill. You must go deeper, separate much further, to realize true elevation and clarity awarded only to the lucky few that choose to purse the path of a MGTOW Monk.

See you on the motherfuckin’ Far Side… and I’m out.

Response to the Regretful Valedictorian: Relationships, Potential, and MGTOW Monk Mode

Congratulations.

If you haven’t watched his speech, in essence, he regretted sacrificing his relationships and social life in order to earn his status as Valedictorian. He was elated for all but 15 seconds when it was confirmed, but arrived at the 16th second with emptiness

“Relationships are where we get to influence, impact, and change people’s lives. Your life can not be meaningful without them.” – Kyle Martin, TKA Class of 2019 Valedictorian

I too know the struggle Kyle. I sacrificed my own relationships in high school for the same achievement, and went even further, dedicating my summers, weekends, and some after-school sessions to strengthen my SAT scores and college applications to enter a top university.

I was satisfied with this peak after high school, and completely threw grades out the window when I started university, going full social life, even joining a fraternity, and well, the rest is a hazy history. (I did earn consecutive Dean’s List awards when I returned to college, however).

Despite only spending three semesters at that university, I’m very fortunate that I still have the ability to call a few of those guys up and hang with them if I were in town.

But that’s just the thing; I’d have to be in town.

You think relationships are important to you because of immediacy and proximity, but after you and your friends move away to start your careers, not many of these relationships will survive the distance. And a relationship like a wife and child will come at the cost of your other platonic relationships.

Even your parents would want you to move out and start your own life eventually.

You can’t always take people with you, and that’s why I personally wouldn’t advise tailoring your life’s meaning to coincide with such independent external forces such as social relationships.

Success

For me, being Valedictorian will always be, like David Goggins says, a trophy in my mind.

Achieving your goals creates a reservoir of confidence.

It’s not about the 16th second, but about the 16th week or the 16th month or the 16th year when you suddenly lose your confidence and begin to doubt yourself again.

Your personal accomplishments are permanent reminders that you have seen greatness, and reflecting on this proof of your past success can propel you to overcome future struggles and achieve future goals.

Faith

Kyle was only 0.06 points above his competitor for Valedictorian. She and the other students below him in rank may never attain the same level of confidence in the future.

Kyle ended his speech on Faith, and having a relationship with Jesus Christ.

But what is Faith, other than a stronger synonym for confidence?

If I had to my put faith in anyone, it would actually be the salutatorian.

While Kyle could not foresee the 16th second of his life after earning his Valedictorian status, Lauren was able to appreciate the duality of this graduation ceremony, appreciating all the small steps that led up to this grand event, but also recognizing that it’s all a much smaller moment in the entirety of her life and of time as a whole.

“Seniors, as we stand on the cusp of a new season, I challenge you to maintain perspective. Like tonight’s graduation is merely a gradation in the scheme of life, our lives are a gradation in the swath of eternity. And so, I ask you, do you know the one that holds tomorrow?” – Lauren Arrington, TKA Class of 2019 Salutatorian

Happiness

I have no place to tell others what should make them happy. If your life feels more fulfilling pursuing relationships rather than witnessing the extent of your potential, that is what you have decided to keep in your heart throughout your journey.

I just believe that you should hold no regrets Kyle, because your accomplishment was indeed worth it, and the relationships you hold so dearly can not only be more meaningful, but increasingly numerous and influential when we have achieved our full potential.

Were your friends and family not more proud of you because of your accomplishment?

If you were not Valedictorian, you would have never had the platform to give your speech and influence your entire senior class, and, if not for your controversial topic, the 5 million+ viewers on YouTube as well.


MGTOW / Monk Mode

“A lesson learned should be a lesson shared”, as Kyle said.

Likewise, there is one lesson, but two paths to learning it, in MGTOW philosophy.

The first is learning it the hard way, which is the painstaking process of redefining your life after the highly coveted relationships you tethered your life’s meaning behind have disastrously dissolved. This usually occurs during a divorce.

However, you can also discover MGTOW the easy way, which is heeding the lessons from these previously burned men, and choosing to stay far away from the fire.

“A clever person solves problems. A wise person avoids it” – Albert Einstein

Then there are the men who go Monk: The ones that are willing to go down the path of life relatively alone.

They have greatly limited or sworn off all relationships with women/romantic partners, most platonic friendships, and quite possibly, even their own families.

Some men choose this path for the freedom, the peace, and quiet.

But others, like myself, have chosen this path to simply see ourselves, in our entirety. It is a path of self-knowledge and self-sufficiency.

Who are we, exactly, without the influence of others? Could we still function, alone, without society? If you were left with no one but yourself to serve, without any distractions, could you complete your greatest work?

What is your great work?

Most MGTOW are completely content retiring early due to the financial independence earned from not having to provide for a wife or kids.

But to the rare few of us in MGTOW, the 1%, the radical monks, sustenance and wealth building are just trivial logistical concerns.

What truly sustains us is the complete output of our full potential. The only regret to have is not ever knowing the feeling of having the full weight of your being behind a singular goal, and courageously setting out to accomplish it.


Not much from this world can be taken with you to the grave, or the afterlife, so if reflecting on all the relationships you made throughout your life is going to make you smile on your deathbed, by all means, live that life to the fullest.

But “a lesson learned should be a lesson shared” as Kyle said, so here is my lesson:

The happiness you can create while completely alone is a happiness you can experience every second of your life, and not just the 16th.

Finding The Wall: Plateaued Productivity and Leaving Monk Mode

I was afraid when I first started Monk Mode.

I was afraid that I would find toiling away in solitude more preferable to socializing in mainstream society, and that I would find some knowledge, whether about myself or about the world, that would never allow me to return to normal everyday relationships with friends, family, and lovers.

I still have that fear. But I’ve at least discovered now that there can be some limits to my productivity.


I have a stay-at-home job, which is quite conducive to my current status within Monk Mode.

I make my own schedule, and my quota is anywhere between 20-40 hours a week.

At first I tried the standard Mon-Fri, eight-hours-a-day system, but then I realized that no one actually works eight hours straight, because of the lunch breaks.

I also recalled that average workers usually spend their off-time recovering from the expense of drawn-out work days, so I decided to make every day identical but sustainable, and break up the 40 hours across the week.

This was a solid plan, until I hit the wall.

You see, my job actually has a physical limiter on it, as repetitive clicking while reviewing over 135+ items per hour, for several hours a day, will slowly chew away at the tendons between your fingers.

Surprisingly, I was quite relieved when this happened, because my conscientiousness previously would not allow me to dip under the maximum hours available without feeling guilty.

As for now, I can comfortably reach 25 hours a week, with breaks to prevent finger fatigue.


Of course, the other silver lining is that a space has opened up to work on my own personal projects: this blog! The Moon Base MGTOW Project!

However, I realize that suffering from a lack of work only led me to finding more work.

And so, my fear still remains.

Will there ever be a space where my work is not so highly prioritized, and I may potentially establish a stronger social life instead?

Will there ever be a point where I can just “settle down”?

I don’t know.

But I suppose the most moral and logical thing to do with my gifts is to fulfill them until I do reach that wall again: That point when the body goes tired. When the business stops growing. When the well runs dry.

Advertisements

I now look to the man of former potential. How talented he was before his intensified pursuit of women.

Even after his out-of-wedlock child, his art still could have been salvaged.

After work, he could have come home to a single apartment, put his headphones on, and toiled away in his laboratory, only resting on the weekends to raise his child (his version of hitting the wall).

Instead, but still noble, he tried to build a studio at his church, but a flood destroyed his equipment.

Then, as he laid there purposeless and distracted, a woman entered the fray.

Marriage.

Every day now, she will occupy what could have been his great work space. And he will not mourn the lost art he never produced, fore the sensations of his body would validate to him that nothing more of worth can be accomplished now.

And this will last.

But only until he hits that wall.

Until he realizes that he has nothing to show for his life’s work except for what remains of his once youthful woman, and the hope that his child may live to outdo him.
