A Little Bit of Wisdom From Others in 2020

I wanted to start the year by giving credit for a few wise things I gleamed from other people’s blogs and work in 2020. I am hoping that we can make a great run of things in 2021. It may be a time to fight but it is also a time to be great. Let us not be sorry.

Special thanks to my comrade Nikolai at https://sovietmen.wordpress.com/.

Please check out his book The Poor Man’s Guide to Financial Freedom at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B086YHWV8C?ref_=k4w_oembed_0opgncBSDihZYS&tag=kpembed-20&linkCode=kpd.

I have a male family member that bemoans his wife’s health issues and mental decline. He contributes to this due to his childlike behavior, overly emotional actions, and lack of healthy masculinity. His health is not maintained and he chooses to slip away into childish pursuits. His wife shows more masculine features and behaviors since I knew her in her better days. She needs a strong lean in her direction.

If you are unhappy, ask yourself this question. “Is she dominant because it is her nature or because you have failed to lead?” I would venture to say in most cases today it is a man’s failure to own his masculinity and lead. Or worse, be someone unfit to lead and unworthy of following. Acting like a man-child… A huge issue for men today.


I think that many Appalachian-American’s among me badmouth Somalia without knowing anything about it. It was nice to see someone else see the good in a much maligned foreign culture.

But back to Saudi Arabia. The Saudis have to be the most polite and friendly people that I have ever experienced in their own country. Yes, I know that we are supposed to hate them, that they flew planes into buildings, human rights, blah blah blah. Listen, I couldn’t care less anymore. They were delightful. After the overt narcissism of the West it is just so refreshing to go to a country that has its own culture and protects it. I respect the Saudis because they don’t give a hoot what the rest of the world thinks of them. 

This is something that delusional feminists and a few women I know never get; situational awareness. Men have to be aware of their surroundings and the “intentions” of others. We can’t hide behind the way that other people should act.

Half of life is making the right choices; the other half is avoiding bad situations and individuals.  I have seen many men of ability be derailed in life through association with trouble.  It is not enough to be a good man:  one must avoid bad situations with heightened presence of mind.  Every young man, whether he knows it or is oblivious to it, walks along a tightrope stretched over burning coals… Avoid any association with illegal or questionable activity.  Avoid booking passage on leaking ships.  Avoid employment in doomed enterprises.  Avoid darkened alleys, pathways leading along precipices, snowy peaks, sudden storms, and ocean floors.  Know, my son, that some places are not meant for human visitation.

    Everyone should be aware of situational awareness. Most women I know are instinctively good at this. It has saved my life several times. So I’m not sure where your experiences come from that have you selecting feminist and women as being unaware of this. But you have your own experiences. You are allowed your own interpretation.

    I think you are en intelligent person but I think you need to look at how you speak about women. It almost seems you see than as less than and/or have a lot of hidden rage against them. I don’t necessarily fault you but as a female reader it’s a turn off.

    • The feminist end is that they are the most prevalent with a retort when people mention that they shouldnt get off at strange bus stops alone or not get drunk at a club then wonder off alone with a stranger. Their common retort is “teach men not to rape”, etc.
      The irony is that folks get mad when someone says that “you” need to watch your buddy’s back and have situational awareness
      . (Insert my story about my navy buddy getting beat at the stripclub in an alley. Drunk and didnt tell anyone where he was going for a smoke.

      Hidden rage? No. But I treat them like I would treat a man. Self responsibility and agency should count for something.

  3. Parents/adult family/community should teach their kids ethics, among other things. (Principles of the NAP, etc)
    The law is clear that rape is a no-no. It is a crime against a person. There are punishments (varying dependent on system of jurisprudence) that apply.
    I dont disagree with you but the vast majority of people I know werent taught to “not rape”. But I/them were taught the Golden Rule and that I needed to be aware of boundaries/others rights.
