I respect Roosh's personal decision. However, I'd still like to read data sheets of places where I'd like to travel. Those are no longer on his site. What are some other websites that have similar information?

On each of its Brazil pages, "My Latin Life" says "if you want to make the most of your time in Brazil, you will need to speak some Spanish." Ooops. (Obviously copypasta from his other Latam pages; invest in learning some português, it goes a long way. I'm fluent now and it opens so much for you in business, entertainment, chicks, etc).

It's better than portuguese for a gringo, we surely can understand "portunhol". So why not?

I respect his decision too. Must've not been easy to be a lighting rod for controversy for the better half of a decade. Ontop of that look at Milo, Jordan Peterson & many other figure heads. They get fucked up after awhile. He's lucky to possibly shed the reputation & maybe live a normal life.

[–]BootyholeBillBarnes[S] 20 points21 points  (19 children) | Copy

From reading his eulogy of his younger sister, it seems the loss of his sister played a major role in his decision.

Roosh seems like such a genuine guy and I wish him the very best.

[–]J-Unleashed2 points3 points  (18 children) | Copy

Wait, his sister died? Fuck... I didn't know that. It explains him losing his mind and converting to Christianity. Oh well, his* choice.

[–]BootyholeBillBarnes[S] 55 points56 points  (8 children) | Copy

I didn't know about it either until recently, when I was looking for travel sheets.

https://www.rooshv.com/eulogy

It's one of the saddest things I've ever read. The part below is why I think it was such a big factor in the recent changes in his personal life.

I have to say that her death made me feel like a fool. For years I’ve been chasing women, fame, and novelty, thinking that those things would make me happy or somehow complete me when the one thing that could make me happy was so close the entire time. Instead I went to faraway lands, as far as I could, to pursue exotic pleasures and entertainment. They were fun at the time because my family was healthy, my sister was healthy, and I was healthy, but now that all seems so meaningless. I don’t even want to remember those experiences. The only thing I’m scared of is that in a few months, once the pain of her death subsides, I’ll go right back to doing all that, because I don’t know what else my life is for.

Literally modern day book of Ecclesiastes

God bless brother Roosh.

Powerful writing here and I think he has a future writing about things other than banging European broads if he wants it.

[–]J-Unleashed18 points19 points  (0 children) | Copy

Wow. Now I actually feel bad for referring to his conversion to Christianity as "losing his mind." That was a surprisingly beautiful thing to say.

[–]Velebit1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

Nah. Roosh was goong the same way the guy who wrote 'the game' Neil went. Eventually all of hedonist bachelors live to regret not making a family and learn to see their pet projects as time wasters. Even Tesla said his greatest regret was not having a family of his own. No schmuck you know or see in the mirror is going to compare to Tesla in how worth are their pet projects.

You saying its all about the sister is so fully wrong and your own cope. 'He is understandably going crazy'. You can see his level of energy and thinking already significantly change in his videos about nightclubs and his trip to Croatia where all he was avoiding the crowds and socialising. It was years before. And many other podcasts etc are on point with that change. It was a gradual one.

R vs K selection.

[–]BootyholeBillBarnes[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Tesla was an individual. Roosh is an individual. I'm an individual. Tesla said, "What we call 'soul' or 'spirit,' is nothing more than the sum of the functionings of the body. When this functioning ceases, the 'soul' or the 'spirit' ceases likewise." That doesn't sound anything like Roosh's conversion to the Armenian Apostolic Church, so comparing Tesla to Roosh is apples to oranges at best. For all we know, Roosh could end up becoming one of the Armenian church's celibate priests.

I've been married twice and both times my wives fooled around while I was deployed in Afghanistan and one of them got pregnant, so I'm not sure what you're meaning by saying his religious conversion is "my own cope." Comparing Roosh being a bachelor to me and my failed marriages is apples to oranges. I don't want to join the Armenian church, even though I think it's what Roosh should do if he thinks it's what's best for him. I'm sure he has put a lot of thought into it.

And I don't think Roosh is going crazy. I never said that or anything remotely similar to that. I said that I respect his decision. He seems like a genuinely good guy and I wish him the very best.

What you chose to leave out of that Tesla quote makes transparent how you pick and choose what you like.

There is no soul or spirit. These are merely expressions of the functions of the body. These life functions cease with death and so do soul and spirit. What humanity needs is ideals. Idealism is the force that will free us from material fetters.

"There is no conflict between the ideal of religion and the ideal of science, but science is opposed to theological dogmas because science is founded on fact. To me, the universe is simply a great machine which never came into being and never will end. The human being is no exception to the natural order. Man, like the universe, is a machine. Nothing enters our minds or determines our actions which is not directly or indirectly a response to stimuli beating upon our sense organs from without. Owing to the similarity of our construction and the sameness of our environment, we respond in like manner to similar stimuli, and from the concordance of our reactions, understanding is born. In the course of ages, mechanisms of infinite complexity are developed, but what we call "soul " or "spirit," is nothing more than the sum of the functionings of the body. When this functioning ceases, the "soul" or the "spirit" ceases likewise." - by Nikola Tesla as told to George Sylvester Viereck, http://www.pbs.org/tesla/res/res_art11.html., Liberty, PBS.org, February 1937.

"Religion is simply an ideal. It is an ideal force that tends to free the human being from material bonds. I do not believe that matter and energy are interchangeable, any more than are the body and soul. There is just so much matter in the universe and it cannot be destroyed. As I see life on this planet, there is no individuality. It may sound ridiculous to say so, but I believe each person is but a wave passing through space, ever-changing from minute to minute as it travels along, finally, some day, just becoming dissolved."

Tesla was also a eugenicist and saw both religion and science as eugenic forces that transform humanity by selecting for and against certain traits. For example the abuse and lack of resources to bastards selects against genes for adultery and disloyalty. There is a lot of research that shows how religiosity is related to better life and more evolutionarily adaptive behavior.

Armenian Apostolic Church is Orthodox and only Catholics have celibacy for common clergy.

Bad choice in women is not very related to what you are replying to. Just like there is the unemployable psychological profile, there is the unfaithful type. You not having skills to profile (and test) people well says about you. Judging peoples characters is an incredibly rare and valuable trait. I would say that is on of most useful traity I am to my friends. I can also say that skill is rare in very masculine type brains. They tend to miss out on loads of signs especially from women, more if they like them, even more if they are raised a certain way and absolutely blind if their mother was not a very... motherly and proper woman who has show them toxic femininity not by example but by pointing it out.

Tesla's view of the soul being temporary is the opposite of the church which views it as eternal.

There are celibate priests in the Armenian church: https://www.bellevillearmenianchurch.org/orig/armtoday18.php

I was just lucky to find out my wives were cheating before we started a family. Many wives cheat and most of their husbands are oblivious to their cheating or are in denial.

Why do you think him converting to Christianity means he’s lost his mind?

[–]J-Unleashed9 points10 points  (6 children) | Copy

Because I hate religion, and seen the horrors of religion. So, from my mind, you had to be foolish to flock to such ideas. I view religion as sets of values that implant aspects of gynocentricism into otherwise good men. With that said, those were views I held two years ago. I don't hold as black and white of a view towards religion as I once did.

I evolved from the "opiate of the masses" viewpoint because I just felt there was more nuance to that assessment after having spent more time in my community. Made some really good Christian friends who don't make a persistent effort to convert me. They seem to genuinely care for me as I am. My views were super extreme in the Marxist regard towards religion, but when my step mother's father passed away, I watched her draw her inner strength to carry on, by saying that God gives her the power because she has the greatest family. She died a little over a year later, and my kid brother was 9 at the time. His religious community did things for him that were amazing. They threw him a party on his 10th birthday and had a lot of people there. A woman who had not gotten along with my stepmother for years, told me that she and my stepmom had just reached good terms a few weeks before, and she went out and bought my dad and brothers $200 worth of groceries for them. Food, bread, milk, everything. Who does that?!

Eventually, I realized that religion is like everything else in that it's not for everybody.

I rambled on more than I intended, but I hope I answered your question.

[–]VojvodaSrpski8 points9 points  (4 children) | Copy

Fair point and very interesting read.

The only thing I'd like to suggest to you is to make a little research into the old church fathers, if you’re interested. They were the original founders of the Christian theology and were very RP and not gynocentric in the least.

They were strong, intelligent men with a purpose in their lives.

[–]J-Unleashed4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy

It wouldn't hurt to read their works. Do me a solid, and hook me up with names, dates, specific works or publications you think would be helpful. All the best.

[–]VojvodaSrpski1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Well I can only directly recommend one work that I have read in full - Confessions by st. Augustine of Hippo.

But there are other prominent characters that are worth looking into: St. Peter and Paul of course, st. Thomas Aquinas, Tertullian, st. Jerome, Firmillian, John Chrysostom, Origen of Alexandria, st. Clement of Alexandria would be the most interesting.

Also look into Aristotle and Galen if you’re interested.

I’m sorry that I couldn’t provide you with much specific works, because I haven’t read that much myself, but I’m sure you could get the general idea behind these men by looking them up and maybe searching about specific views they held on some subjects such as role of women in society, etc..

Anything written by peter

second that. i want some of these books too

[–]Velebit1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Cut the crap. Horrors of religion my ass. That is a retarded old meme that is a literal magnet for 'spiteful mutants'. Low genetic quality young males who 'see through it' in puberty.

You don't see through it... Your mind is rationalizing your knee jerk hate of being told what to do, how to live, how to feel and being shaped into something someone else will find useful.

Humans evolved to have a religion. No atheistic group survived. Even a proto religion is good enough as long as it instills collectivism, self sacrifice, a cause worth living and dying for, a set of objective values that enable to see virtue and sin, and basis for feeling not merely social shame but also guilt when noone is looking. It has to promote fertility and other evolutionarily adaptive things.

Every group disappeared that lost its religiosity. Greeks when they replaced religiosity with philosophy. Rome when it stoped believing in old Gods and became hedonists before Christian germans conquered them. Persians when they stopped believing in their ancient religion and then came anothet group united under Zoroastrianism etc etc.

There is a cyclical way civilizations work. Listen to 'Fate of empires' on youtube and you will realize what marxism is.

TBH, I have travelled a lot and don't have much trust in the travel data sheets anymore. I believe the authors are honest, but there are too many variables to account for. To name just a few:

  • Your ethnicity
  • Your taste in women
  • Your personality, music preferences, favourite pastimes
  • Where you are in your life
  • Luck

Even personal experience from short episodes is not enough to draw any conclusions. For example, I went to Russia a couple times for few days and had great results with women. Then I went for a couple months and it was not bad but not particularly good either.

[–]JurJur2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

so fucking true.. it’s all really a toss up. At the end of the day, we are all human with different moods throughout the day. One day she might say yes and another day she might say no. It’s all a toss up

[–]huey7646 points7 points  (1 child) | Copy

Swoop the world has some interesting stories, altho I cannot attest for their quality. I think its a little PUA but it serves its purpose imo

I didn't, but I'll give it a shot.

what happened to Roosh?

[–]PositiveMaleGuidance66 points67 points  (2 children) | Copy

He took the ultimate red pill and ditched the thots to follow God.

RIP

His site is still up and running, but as he's Christian now, he doesn't want for him, his website, or his books to be a bad influence on others. His website is still good, but the travel section has been deleted.

What exactly is a data sheet?

[–]BootyholeBillBarnes[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

They're a review of a city or country based on personal experience. It could include information about the hotels, the nightlife, the ladies, the restaurants, etc. Here's an example: https://www.swooptheworld.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=2069
