Ravishing Rick Rude’s (a.k.a. Enrique the Terrible) video titled “To all MRAs, MGTOWs, Traditionalists: How does your input benefit individuals?”:
My response video:
Pretty simple stuff, but still it’s more than plenty are aiming to do. Guess it all boils down to an issue of priorities.
Strategies I cover here are:
1.) Self-employment/being paid “under the table” and in cash
2.) No reason to legally marry
3.) Choose not to have children (and individually take responsibility for our own means of birth control)
4.) Switch to local banks and/or credit unions for your banking needs
5.) Cheaper to rent than to own a house (and comes with fewer headaches)
6.) Worry less about accruing material goods since that’s feeding the corporate beast and we’re bringing in more stuff than we need
7.) Utilize the power of collectives for very specific purposes
8.) Learn about history (go back further and explore more broadly)
The book mentioned was Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong (1995) by James W. Loewen. I highly recommend it in audiobook format.
That’s what I’m working with at present. I realize plenty of MRAs and MGTOWs talk about similar strategies, as do several libertarians, and these aren’t ideas useful only for males.
