I have been reluctant to post here, but I think this will be of interest to the community. How many of y'all watched the Netflix special Dave Chappelle comedy come back tour double event? I think the line he dropped about marriage was the most powerful moment of the entire series. I honestly don't know if this video will get taken down or this post deleted.

Dave Chappelle: Marriage is Nothing but an Awful Contract You Shouldn't Sign https://youtu.be/3ZYw6UnZuoE

One of the defining characteristics of the red pill has been discussion of social theories that buck mainstream culture.

TRP's mission is to discuss men's identity, sexual strategy, and options in the context of our current global culture for the benefit of men.


I was under the impression that the format I used where I showed a brief clip and then provided analysis/social commentary was legal and falls under the category of "fair use." I would appreciate if anyone in this community (especially if you saw the video so you know what you're talking about) could offer an opinion/guidance as to whether or not I should pursue a counter notification against the copyright holder.


Counter Notification Basics A counter notification is a legal request for YouTube to reinstate a video that has been removed for alleged copyright infringement. The process may only be pursued in instances where the upload was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled, such as fair use. It should not be pursued under any other circumstances.

If your video was removed but does not fit the criteria above, you may want to seek a retraction, or simply wait for your strike to expire.

Please note that when we forward the counter notice, it will include the full text of the counter notice, including any personal information you provide. The claimant may use this information to file a lawsuit against you in order to keep the content from being restored to YouTube. By submitting a counter notification, you consent to having your information revealed in this way. We will not forward the counter notification to any party other than the original claimant.

Counter notifications must be submitted by the video’s original uploader or an agent authorized to act on their behalf, such as an attorney

Here's some information:

In the United States, fair use is determined by a judge, who analyzes how each of the four factors of fair use applies to a specific case.

1. The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes

  • Courts typically focus on whether the use is “transformative.” That is, whether it adds new expression or meaning to the original, or whether it merely copies from the original. Commercial uses are less likely to be considered fair, though it’s possible to monetize a video and still take advantage of the fair use defense.

2. The nature of the copyrighted work

  • Using material from primarily factual works is more likely to be fair than using purely fictional works.

3. The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole

  • Borrowing small bits of material from an original work is more likely to be considered fair use than borrowing large portions. However, even a small taking may weigh against fair use in some situations if it constitutes the “heart” of the work.

4. The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work

  • Uses that harm the copyright owner’s ability to profit from his or her original work are less likely to be fair uses. Courts have sometimes made an exception under this factor in cases involving parodies

I'M NOT LOOKING TO BUILD A "TRP LEGAL TEAM", JUST GIVE ME YOUR OPINIONS ON WHETHER OR NOT I SHOULD FIGHT THIS If you don't want to leave any public comment that could be misconstrued as legal advice or whatever, please send me a private message. What do you think? Fair use? Or it was a good run and quit while I'm ahead?

He walked away from one lucrative $50 million contract that would have stifled him and he lived his life on his own free terms while spending his already somewhat limitless money and then zipped into another $50 million contract on his own free terms. The power to walk away...

As a kid I always thought he was crazy for doing that. Only now do I see the genius. And you know what he was smart! He made himself more attractive, people always wanted more Dave after that. Brilliant move and a great teachable moment.

He said he had about $10M in the bank and he was at a restaurant and saw a guy worth $100M. He realized the guy was eating the very same entree as he was. So if he kept doing what he didn't want to do, and got to $100M, his life wouldn't really change.

So he just didn't show up for work the next day. "You know, it’s like getting divorced in the ’50s. People didn’t go to divorce court. They looked at their wife like, ‘Baby, I’m going to get a pack of cigarettes. I’ll be right back.’ And they just leave with the clothes on their back and make a go of it. There wasn’t even internet back then. You could move 11 miles away and have a whole new life.”

I always explain this to people on the difference between making 50k a year vs 200k. Both people likely work 9-5. The only real difference is the guy making 200k drives a little nicer car and might have a little bigger house. But do these two people really live that different of lives?

Edit: Maybe 200k was too much let's try 100k haha. Either way the idea is paychecks aside they commit the same number of hours. Meanwhile someone who can make 30k a year while not working at all to me would be very wealthy.

138 upvotesInfinity63 years ago

At 200k a year you can start looking at early retirement, investing to accumulate real wealth, multiple foreign vacations a year, etc.

29 upvotesdont-YOLO-ragequit3 years ago

200k a year man also has a better quality of life as soon as he punches out. His network of people makes it that he usually calls a few numbers to find professionals who will do everything they can( including bend their schedules) hoping to do better or bigger jobs for him or his contacts. He also doesn't mind seeing prodessionals of every field before things becomes major,out of hand, or require time off. He also gets calls on huge deals since they know he can buy right now( also because luxury stuff depreciates fast so saving are huge).He buys the right stuff to unwind in the middle of the week if he has to. 50k man needs to run around on his own time to buy stuff on sale, call and find decent professionals who will squeeze their appointment somewhere if it's urgent or said professional will schedule it 2 to 4 weeks later. They also end up planning ahead to buy or rent what they need to unwind.

It all becomes a matter of how you value your time to save the same15% and what you do with it.

I went from making 80k to 120k+ Bonus+ Employee Stock Allotment+a Stock Vesting program. I worked between 80- 100 hours a week. I left that job and now work at a place still making decent money but not nearly as much with a much better work life balance. IMHO it's not a s simple as the money doesn't make a difference. It does. But it really doesn't effect happiness or satisfaction.

Based on my experiences, happiness and satisfaction has come from deprogramming many of the things society programs into you. Chappelle's story is a great example of getting off the hamster wheel of needing more and more money for a fulfilling. On a larger scale TRP is about the same thing but not about money and about being a man.

If you work at a craft and truly dedicate yourself to it money will come. People pay for quality. The same way making a commitment to being a better man attracts women to you.

Yeah the lifestyle wouldn't change (if the person earning 200k a year was smart at least), just the speed and which they reach independent wealth.

I spend way way way less than I earn, because I like being able to walk away from anything, and you don't get to do that if you don't have a nest egg or your own money out there earning enough returns for you to live on.

In the span of 8 years I went from $70K to $200+ by changing jobs and location. It has meant sacrifice on my part, but if I hadn't made the change I would not be looking at a comfortable retirement at the end of 2018.

I work in an industry that can be very dangerous (oil & gas), and do 12 hour shifts on a 72 hour cycle, with at least 500 hours of overtime per year.

I expect the end result to be debt free and enough coming in to put me in control of what I want to do, instead of being a slave to everyone else.

I lived in India half my life. There is a very clear class system here. If you're a postman, for instance, you're likely making about 1/10th of what my middle-class father makes.

The postman would call me "Sir" and wouldn't hang out where I hang out - he just can't afford it.

When I first went to the US to stay with my brother before heading off to college, he took me to the local bar. My brother makes about $120k+, which is a lot of money in suburban Atlanta. At the bar, he met a guy, they chatted up.

When he finished, he told me that this guy was his postman.

That was the biggest surprise for me about the US. That there was no real "class system" here (there is, but it's nowhere like the rest of the world). A bus driver, a plumber, a postman can eat and drink with an PhD or a banker.

I work in mortgages and see dozens of examples like this daily.

Fact: the guy making more is not living any different until you reach 400k, that's when good money management will make you live like Scarface, their lives are automated. We as a mortgage company do not even speak to these people directly when they're buying homes, they have assistants they pay to do this work for them.

There is a third tier, the multimillionaires, these people are on a level incomprehensible to us, jetsetting businessmen forging industries internationally, they can afford the world but they are the most stressed out people I have ever spoken with, they're the first to complain about a five hundred dollar fee, tier 1 and 2 never complain but these guys bitch and moan like they're living paycheck to paycheck. Always getting divorced. It comes full circle no matter how much you make.

On the flip side my dad makes around 450k a year and lives almost pay check to paycheck because he's the ultimate beta and decided to be captain save a ho to young hottie (15 years younger) whom has 3 young kids (all under 15 currently) from one guy and then decided to impregnate her with 2 more after getting married. All while living in gigantic home in the burbs for a good school, and pays for 2 60+k car payments for him and said ho. Who will eventually dump him, and rake him some serious money on top of her new tits she already got. Don't be my dad if you make that kind of change, I know I'm not. 450k surprisingly isn't a lot of money when its spread out over 7 people living above their income level. It pisses me off to no end because he literally could set himself up for life of not having to work instead supports all of these people.

10 upvotesSwelfie3 years ago

50k to 100k is a huge difference. 100k to 200k much less so. Sure, I can sock away more at 200k, but day to day difference really isn't much.

At 50k, you are trying to get by. At 100k+ you are getting by just fine as long as you aren't paying off an ex wife. The getting by part doesn't change much until you hit wealth, which has more to do with savings than income.

4 upvoteswanderer7793 years ago

For most people who are at 100k and thinking about getting to 200k, it is a complicated question. It's not like you are going to save an extra 100k. First of all you are going to be taxed probably an extra 30-40k. Then you have to figure in a little lifestyle inflation. And usually you will have to work more in a higher stress position.

If you could just keep the same hours and job and put 100k in tax deferred accounts it would be a no-brainer. I'd probably still usually try to get ahead, but it's not as good as it seems.

1 upvotesMoneyley3 years ago

at $54k last year headed towards $76k this year... not much difference because you keep getting taxed higher on the way up. The system is so fucking hard (rigged) but I think there is a lot of hope once I reach $200k or either reach $150k with 50k in assets. I dont need to live lavishly but I think its important to hit a net worth that cushions enough so you're comfortable enough to take more risks.

11 upvotesihelpwithredcapsule3 years ago

Not the same comparison. While some may agree that whether your income is 200k or 50k, your lifestyle is unaffected, the difference between the 2 is extreme. 200k is high class, and those that make 200k generally know how to spend their makings on what they really need/want rather than pointless shit that offers no value but "seemed like a good idea at the time". 50k guys are absolutely able to live a decent life if they can properly manage their money, but I doubt many who make 50k really understand the idea of proper spending, time managment etc. therefore not having the lifestyle that 50k could potentially earn you. There are obviously exceptions to those generalizations Dave's idea is similar but the scale is different, the difference between 50k and 200k lifestyles is much much greater than the difference between 100 million net worth and 10 million (again, MOST of the time). This is due to the fact that with 10 million, already the highest quality(well almost but close enough) products are affordable, so with 100 million it's the same life basically.

19 upvotesShakaLeonidas3 years ago

Nah i disagree. I actually made a boat load of money(international contracting) and then lost everything. Got back on my feet and realized that time was the only thing i couldnt get back. I couldn't get back that decade of sleepless nights and long work days, planning and preparing. Missed time with freinds and family and surpassing momentary gratification for the long haul. Stress by the boat load. I had some nice things. Most of which are gone. I had some nice women. ALL of them are gone. Ironically started living a better quality of life when i made less and had more time and personal freedom. The hottest women ive been with have been laid with out all the flashyness. I also know now that money and material shit comes and goes in the blink of an eye. You have to find happiness in all aspects of life. More money really does equal more problems but being broke ain't no fun for anyone. I digress. My millionaire freinds and family eat the same Pizza hut as everybody else. Drive to the store in a 200k car but still pay the same price for gas as everyone else. Fly first class just to land at the same time as everybody else. If your talking moments of luxury, yes things are different. But only on the surface If your talking respect from peers... there is less because everyone smiles with one hand out and another behind their back. The Instagram pictures looked awesome though.

2 upvotesihelpwithredcapsule3 years ago

This is kind of what I've been getting at, there are those that make less money and are fine with it because they understand their values and know making more wouldnt make them happier (you are like this from what I understand, this is the minority). Then the majority of those who make 50k(the ones who can't spend properly at all) struggle to get anything done, live paycheck to paycheck, and wish for more money because they see money as happiness (not sure if i can blame them since you always desire what you can't have, but at the same time they have this problem because of their own refusal to make more).

I always explain this to people on the difference between making 50k a year vs 200k. Both people likely work 9-5.

The guy making 200k is likely working 60+ hours a week unless it's passive income of some sort

29 upvoteswhoglyogglydoo3 years ago

This is so ignorant and why there's so much class envy. No, the person making $200k a year does NOT work just 9-5. They're generally on call 24 hours. Some days they come home from the 9-5 part only to crack open the laptop and continue working. We work with people on the other side of the globe, so there are 3AM meetings at times.

The ignorance in your statement makes me livid. It's evidence of how lower classes see upper classes. Anyone can choose to work 90+ hrs a week to make $200k. If you just want to make $50k, then work 9-5 and don't bitch about gradually growing poorer.

16 upvotesDremlar3 years ago

Depends on the field. Some of my friends make that much money (one considerably more) and they work 9-5 bar crunch time if they planned poorly. If you work in a high skilled field and are good at what you do you can make a lot of money with regular hours.

That being said, I know many at my level which is still good money who put in 60+ hour weeks.

They probably would have made the show canned and corny. In an interview he said that some people on the show were trying extremely hard to get him to dress up as a woman. He didn't want to do it and they told him that "all the [black] greats" did it. They really wanted him to cross dress and I think that it rubbed him the wrong way and he realized that he could end up being forced to do things like that.

12 upvotesCanedude083 years ago

Emphasis on MOST. Carlin was the only ELITE guy on your list that was still kicking past forty. Frankly, old man Carlin was, in my opinion, significantly better than young Carlin. As he aged he grew even more cynical, and his age became part of the comedy. Patrice was damn good, no one called him Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, etc good. Those are elite comics. Patrice is a guy who has a loyal fanbase(I'm part of that), but he was never truly able to take that talent, and get it out to the masses. Some of that was because his message was far too tough for a widespread audience, but a lot of other guys have managed to take tough stuff and make it palatable to large audiences(Pryor was a guy who was great at that).

I'm gonna give that some thought. Not that I disagree but I wonder if we are using different words to say same damn thing.

6 upvotes • [deleted] • 3 years ago

Probably the same thing. Here's an example:

Assume, a guy has been living good with income over 120K. Pays mortgage on McMansion, 2 nice cars, all the nice stuff. He's saving too, but at the end of the month, the 10K a month income is all spent or spoken for. He has a place to live and a nice car to drive. Gets food and clothes. He's buying wife clothes and food and a nice car/SUV for her and all the expenses she creates. The reality is he is getting the benefit of a very small percentage of his income.

He walks away. Gives 1/2 his income to her till the kids are grown, and even gets the shaft with some short term alimony.

Now he lives cheap. Nice, small, low cost apartment. Trades in the BMW for a Honda. If he works it right, he can actually end up with more money left over at the end of each month.

So yes, he doesn't have a huge stash of "fuck you money", but he does have at least few hundred dollars that only he can get at. With that he has his "fuck you lifestyle" by virtue of being willing to walk away, and live on less, and enjoy the freedom.

With that mentality, any time a man leaves the house, he does not have to come back. Freedom.

In another post, I made the comment that I never got outside without my wallet and my keys...

EDIT: Maybe it could also be called a "fuck you mentality"

Edit #2:That is what I did at the end of my first marriage. I walked out the door with only my keys and my wallet, and never came back. I did have a small stash of cash, that was pitiful, instead of plentiful.

It's because comedy is an extreme form of a sprinkle of truth that shouldn't be taken too seriously, typically. With red pill it's the fullblown truth. He blasts the audience with red pills and none of them actually swallow it. They just let it dangle in their mouth and spit it out laughing.

I disagree. It's more like, they know deep down, the joke is the truth. Just look at how much Bill Burr kills it with his jokes and it's all unadulterated red pilled stuff. Comedians just tend to deliver it in a comical way that makes everyone laugh at the absurdity of it.

I think it's two-fold. Some actually realize it to be true, but laugh, reject, and act as if it isn't because they're following societal rules. Similar to 48 laws' think as you like, but act as others or whatever it was. They know it's the truth, but it's taboo to just run around shouting red pill stuff. It's just rules of the game.

Others truly think it's absurd. These would be those still in the blue pill. I know before trp, when I would hear jokes like Chappelle's or Burr's, I'd laugh because I thought it was rediculous. "Women aren't really like that, he's just joking." I truly thought what they were saying was absurd and that's where I found the comedy in it.

They will be made to suffer for as long as necessary until they sign up and the system finds a way to function with the corruption so that when the system limps out of this in many years then it will be a done deal. Then, the next billion get brought into it...

rape culture

Yes, you are so right. I am Indian and I can vouch to what you are saying. The Rape culture is integrated in our school syllabus. In 1st grade we have Rape101 where we learn that it is our birth right as men to rape. In second grade we have Rape102 , we learn that all white people are like saints and respect women so much and we do not have to be like them.

7 upvotesMinomol3 years ago

While India has been doing great in terms of removing the rape problem, you have to at least agree that there is, or until very recently has been one. In the more rural areas. Of course the term "rape culture" is overblown, but India definitely has a rape problem.

You went to school. The articles discuss how the many people beneath you barely exist in your mind.

I once met an Indian in Europe who told me that many Indians were upset and that he was upset with the movie Slumdog Millionaire because it depicted to many people that India was only a poor country. I was shocked because when I was living with my Sikh friend in California he had the Indian channel and every night he would watch a single Indian movie about some extremely rich families and one variation after another of pre-marriage issues. So there is the very typical Indian mind, only caring about the perception of the tribe. If the larger world wanted to see another piece of shit canned Bollywood movie about marriage then it would have happened already. Then one very cool movie breaks out because it is about something interesting and the struggles of life (not just ultra rich life) and it is met with resentment.

From what I understand in India there are a hundred million people (if not more) who are too literally stupid or uneducated or both to even understand the concepts. The elites would know better than to pull this shit on some other random billion people on the planet so suddenly and although the masses are suffering and taking their Hindi plight as fate the administrators and populace are likely too corrupt to implement this plan (its already failing but we'll have to see if it fails to the point of collapse).

Similar shit was playing out over continents. The entire world is simply all doing the same funny money thing with the Rothschild families dominating the European, American and Japanese systems. Your misinformed if you think that Japan and China weren't playing with infinite bubble money. Have you seen Chinese real estate? Its simply the largest house that dictates the precise moment when it collapses. If a smaller country pulls a plug then guess what? Nothing, just that little country goes to shit. When the US pulls the plug then they bring it down on demand. Same shit and ALL of the banks are tied into the same exact BIS system and are running on the same exact mathematical model pioneered in England (when the Rothschild family took it over). There are a shrinking number of countries not integrated into the BIS system and from 2000 onward that small list shrank considerably (all of the countries attacked, destroyed and converted were on a different banking system). None of this makes India not populated by incredible numbers of superstitious ignorant fucks.

Dave Chappelle: Marriage is Nothing but an Awful Contract You Shouldn't Sign

He's been married since 2001 and has 3 kids, so that vid is just a performance.

His anti-marriage stance is about as credible as Rollo's (though I really enjoy Rollo's writing).

112 upvotesColdIceZero3 years ago

That's an ad hominem logical fallacy that has nothing to do with the merits of the claim but instead focuses entirely on the characteristics of the person saying it. The statement "smoking is bad for your health" is still valid, even if the person making the statement is a smoker.

2 upvotes • [deleted] • 3 years ago

He didn't use a noun as an insult towards Rollo or Chappelle so I wouldn't call it ad hominem. I would say its closer to a No True Scotsman logical fallacy. But as you said, Chappelle can be married and his anti-marriage stance is still credible.

8 upvotesUrsusG3 years ago

focuses entirely on the characteristics of the person saying it

Because OP was glowing about "powerful moments" and "bucking mainstream culture."

The merits of the claim stand on their own: do not marry

The merits of Dave Chappelle stand on their own: he's a good comedian.

But when married Dave talks about how you shouldn't get married, my paradigms shift without a clutch.

Also, it's perfectly natural to prefer advice from people who practice what they preach, don't you agree?

42 upvotesColdIceZero3 years ago

I think it's a trick of the mind to feel more comfortable with the consistency, but it has almost nothing to do with the truth of the claim being made.

Let's switch it around. If a guy told you that going to the gym is good for you, but he doesn't go to the gym himself, does that mean going to the gym isn't good for you? It is inconsistent that the guy would make the claim yet not follow through with his own advice; but that situation then necessitates the question, "why isn't he going to the gym?"

Either he doesn't go to the gym because he's lying about how beneficial the gym is, or there's some additional factors involved in his personal life that influence his ability or choice to go to the gym. If those personal factors have nothing to do with you, then the claim "going to the gym is good for you" is still valid, even if the person saying it doesn't go to the gym.

So sure, it requires less mental exercise to follow the consistency of people who practice what they preach; but the lack of practice doesn't inherently negate the truth of a declared statement.

Also, on the flip side, "trust me because I do it too" is not necessarily support for a claim's truthfulness either. If a murderer tells you that killing people isn't a crime, are you to believe him merely because his statement is consistent with his practice?

This is why a person's characteristics should be irrelevant when analyzing whether a statement is true or false. Ad Hominem and Appeal to Authority are both logical fallacies for a reason.

If Trump, Hillary, and Bernie Sanders all said that the sun rises in the east, but your instinct is to distrust the statement when said by some or trust it when said by others, then you have an underdeveloped skill in critical thinking.

  1. They have social media personnel employed solely to comb YouTube and similar sites for this (and other copyrighted material) special
  2. They (Netflix) filed this 'injuction' against you (my words, not source).
