“I hate the streets”, said Harry TheBicepsFlexKilla and instinctively let his back crash against the wall behind him. He then slid into a squat position under a burden that had been accumulating all his life. Too tired to blink, Harry let his sharp eyes assess the situation around him. He’d been at that place a few too many times and knew his surroundings like a cloud knows the sky. Every sound was a generator of deja vus. Every movement produced by the humans around was painful and for some reason wrong. Even the dust near the edges of the sidewalk was a source of irritation – a background of a bleak painting where the objects are moving without going anywhere; where the air is tired of entering and exiting the lungs.
The people around appeared dedicated and convinced. It almost felt like they were the real owners of their actions. But Harry’s intuition concluded that they were all silly and theatrical… nothing but hypnotized spectators watching different movies with identical plots.
“Why are they so happy,” thought Harry while analyzing a large billboard looking at him with a smile capable of disguising the biggest lies. “What do they believe in? Is this all there is?”
Then a teenager singing loudly while chatting on his phone without looking where he walks passed in front of Harry and stole his attention. The boy was heavily invested in the moment. An adrenaline alluding to heartache was powering his movements.
He went away only to be replaced by a dude on a skateboard with big wheels. The man was in his 30s and wearing big audiophile headphones allegedly capable of transporting one to another dimension thanks to their high fidelity. In his right hand, he was holding an energy drink. The sound of skate wheels vibrating over the uneven pavement started to fill Harry’s cranium with agitation but thankfully the noise faded quickly.
“Music, sports, movies, books, junk food…what is the common trait…” thought Harry while feeling profound pain caused by his inability to find comfort in the world’s offerings. The drugs weren’t working anymore. Was he broken? Was he the only one for whom the medicine was failing to produce results? What was wrong with him?
“Have we always been as empty as we are today? Have we always lived a simulation,” thought Harry while staring at his boots which were still carrying traces of dry mud from his regular weekend walk in the forest – one of the rare times away from the haunting smell of energy drinks, cigarettes and evaporating gasoline… away from the angry cars always rushing to go somewhere… away from the smartphone vibrations… away from the screens and closer to the revelation.
“Maybe if I was born in another era when ‘men were men’… maybe then I would have been happy,” he said to himself as if he was admitting to a crime in front of an imaginary judge. “They say that older men had 10 times higher testosterone at our age. Did my grandfather live a manlier life than me?”
A reflection of the sun in the window of a bank on the other side of the street interrupted Harry’s thought process.
Right behind the entrance door of the branch, there was a security guard in his 60s. He had a white shirt and black pants overpowered by a fat waistline carrying a gun that only gets to shoot at the range. The man was looking at an unknown object with a gaze full of emptiness. Every motion no matter how subtle contained nihilistic heaviness.
The entire presence of the security guard was crying for something. The man wanted to die. His heart was begging for someone to rob the bank and kill him in the process. He wanted to leave the never-ending cycle of misery and be done with it forever. But before all – he wanted to feel alive by dying. He was yearning for his own blood. Existing in the simulation was that painful.
Harry couldn’t blame him. The man had spent decades looking through the same window, seeing the same crowd, hearing the same words from the same unhappy customers, sitting on the same chair, receiving the same salary and waiting for the same bullet put on an infinite delay. His future? More of the same vegetation until retirement… if the cigarettes and the alcohol, two of his few saviors, were willing to let him live that long.
“Maybe the medicine is not working for him either… maybe the world rather than our generation is broken,” said Harry.
The Claim. Modern men spend most of their time collecting action figures and writing sensitive posts on social media at 3 a.m. while listening to nightcore and constantly refreshing the profile page of any girl that happens to look in their direction.
The testosterone levels of males today are many times lower than the numbers of the previous “real man” generations. 30-40% of young men have the average testosterone of a 70-year-old.
The solution. Strong promotion of TRT (testosterone replacement therapy) in the form of gels and injections.
An Extended List Of the Factors Contributing To the Low Test Phenomenon
Modern men are not physically different than the previous generations. The drop of testosterone is not the output of a physical downgrade. It’s the result of societal degradation, poor nutritional habits, cultural dynamics, economics, propaganda, industrialization, feminism, polyamor, hypergamy, pornography, sexual perversions, social media, deprivation, outsourcing of basic human rights, slavery and other factors that have contributed to the formation of the present climate.
The environment conditions the body and the mind. The demand imposed on the individual and the worldview injected in the common consciousness mold us by amplifying or decreasing natural human characteristics.
The world has been depressing the testosterone levels of the average man through a series of tweaks required to maintain the modern order.
The large quantities of processed nutrition combined with the vegan propaganda powered proudly by feminism and the pink social media have changed the diet of the modern man. Drinking sugary drinks, eating tofu and soy was unheard of before. Men have been meat eaters for the better part of their existence. If we were not designed to eat meat, we would have been born as cows. I know that this may hurt the little vegan in every one of us, but it is true.
I understand the main motivation of vegans – animals are great (at least those that make for a nice “insta” picture) and do not deserve to be pumped with growth hormone, thrown in a cage, abused and later slaughtered for their meat and skin. Obviously, this is correct. But this pain is primarily the result of industrialization and the monetary system. To make a profit and feed the human world which has grown to extraterrestrial proportions, the system has created artificial animal farms producing an enormous amount of sadness. Nevertheless, this doesn’t change the fact that hunting is a natural activity and so is meat consumption.
Just like predators we used to kill wild animals for food and resources. At the time, however, men respected their prey a lot more. For instance, the native Americans worshiped the buffalo and relied on all of its parts to create tools necessary for survival.
Some feminists may describe the men from those times as savages, but ironically, the modern world is treating animals way worse. The current way of meat production and distribution has unparalleled barbaric properties, but that does not mean that primitive hunting is bad too. If anything, it’s the most natural way to survive. The ancient hunters lived in harmony with nature whereas modern men are far away from that frequency.
Ultimately, meat and other animal products increase your testosterone thanks to their cholesterol content. A low-fat diet with an inadequate amount of dietary cholesterol can sink your testosterone levels.
2.A life in front of the screens
One could say that we have become screen worshipers. People spend an enormous amount of time texting, playing video games, watching TV series, browsing, online fighting and of course social media tuning. You don’t have to be particularly enlightened to know that this isn’t natural. Yes, we have adapted to this existence, but we weren’t designed for it. It’s not a coincidence that the streets are deserted past a certain hour – the humanoids are simply busy getting their daily dose of digital heroin.
The system supports this circulation because without it a revolution may arise. It’s much better to keep the workers idle by bathing them in digital dopamine – it’s cheap and safe.
The lack of action is extremely detrimental to the average test levels. When you add the sedentary and repetitive modern jobs deprived of innovation, freedom and adventure, you will realize that even superman’s test will drop if he lives like an average working drone overdosing on entertainment. You can trick your mind, heart and body only for so long before experiencing depression.
3.The sexual revolution and feminism
The rise of hypergamy and “polyamor” is at its peak thanks to the new dating infrastructures (apps, social media) and oversexualized entertainment. However, the process started way earlier with the so-called sexual revolution promoting an increased acceptance of sex outside of traditional heterosexual, monogamous relationships. Since that point “showing extra flesh” and indulging in activities of high perversion slowly but surely became the norm.
Then feminism came and legalized everything by finding a way to rationalize degenerate and previously unacceptable behavior. For instance, a woman sleeping with too many men is described as an explorer of her sexuality rather than a superficial and shallow humanoid cruising through life on a skateboard made of propaganda, speculations and corrupt understanding of the human nature. Subsequently, terms like “fuck buddy” (an individual with whom you simply have sex) have become the norm.
Naturally, there has been a similar effect on men too. After all, you can’t affect just one side of the formula. For example, many men try to “slay” – another term for having a one night stand. This is hardly a surprise since men have higher test and desire for sex than women. When a man is sexually frustrated, his low IQ penis can make him do highly regrettable things.
The above may lead to the conclusion that men are having more sex than ever because women have mutated into promiscuous creatures who consider virginity a sin, but that would be inaccurate.
Online apps and social media connect women and men from every social echelon. Before it was impossible for a woman to communicate with men above her status as easily. Similar socializing required time-consuming networking and a far more invested behavior. Today, an average chick working in the supermarket has access to all sorts of men in just a few clicks. She doesn’t have to doll up and go to bars, nightclubs or expensive restaurants. She can do it by fidgeting her phone during her smoke break.
This gives women far too many choices and an opportunity to seek the best male, at least on paper. He has to be tall, handsome, rich and interesting, although sometimes even that isn’t enough when there are 10 more “just like him” messaging her. This coupled with the inflated ego of the average woman who sees herself as a star because people are liking her selfies on Instagram is a recipe for an imbalanced dating world which on the surface benefits women and men residing in the highest leagues while in reality everyone is hurt.
The modern dating meta game leaves many men sexually frustrated and forced to lower their standards substantially in order to experience sex and possibly love. Of course, this degree of madness is not present everywhere in the world, but it affects a massive percentage nevertheless.
So, what do men who can’t get sex regularly do? The scarcity often results in a weird form of unjustified male servitude. In other words, some men try to become nice guys in the hope to earn pity love from the female crowd.
“I will change and do everything for her. Only then she will love me,” says the dreamer.
Very often women treat those men horribly. There are two main reasons for that. First, most nice guys are not on top of the food chain when it comes to attractiveness and social status. That place is reserved only for exceptionally handsome men capable of sending women into a stupor with one look and rich bastards. Secondly, being nice to a girl tells her that she has you. You are making it too easy for her and that turns her off. People want what they cannot have. Thus, women dream of bad boys whereas men go for the bitches.
If you write “Hello. You are cute ” to a woman your chances to get a response are lower than if you were to go with – “Sup. Your photos look trashy. U used a toaster to make them? Try harder…sloottt”.
When a woman sees the first one, her mind says – “just another worshiper”. When she sees the second one, she is triggered – “why doesn’t he like me?”
Similar behavioral principles gave birth to the so-called red pill movement which is a code of conduct designed to provide males with the sexual food they allegedly deserve through a series of strategic tweaks applied in the interaction with women. And while the red pill ideology has some value and can definitely accelerate one’s sex life, it is an adaptation rather than a solution. The tricks work only in the current context and actually make the original problem stronger by giving men a role supporting the very same demons that make the modern woman a slut. The red pill scholars promote hypergamy too as revealed in articles entitled “Managing your bitches”. Who wins? Those behind the doctrine.
Moreover, the red pill principles could produce results only if there’s already attraction between the man and the woman. If a man goes full red pill on a girl that doesn’t find him attractive, she is relieved because she doesn’t want to deal with him anyway. Therefore, the red pill is not a universal solution nor is it healthy in the long term for either of the sides.
It is also worth mentioning that the vast majority of red pill based conquests allude to fiction writing rather than reality. People boost their stats on the Internet very often. As we all know, everybody benches 300lbs and squats 400lbs online, but when you go to an actual gym, you realize how rare those lifts are.
Another contributing factor would be the emphasis on career rather than family – a notion embraced by many women. Thanks to the media, feminism and the rigged economy, the modern woman postpones giving birth until her 30s. In the meantime, she is posting videos, chasing princes, drinking more than she should and abusing her female privileges in a dating pool where many men of decent value are pushed into obscurity. The very same career that eats women’s youth hurts the male stocks too.
“I don’t need a man. I can provide for myself,” says the woman raised by The Sex and the City. “What can Mr. Average offer me when I make more than him,” she adds while swiping on Tinder.
This dating bubble where all women are fighting for extraterrestrial males who form a very small percentage of the population is depressing the test levels of the modern man harder than anything – you are deprived of what you are built to yearn and pushed into embracing all kinds of self-sufficient solutions such as pornography, toys and paid sex. Similar activities fail to function as a complete substitute because they lack one very important ingredient – the feeling of being wanted.
Meanwhile, your grandfather didn’t have to compete against the whole Internet to captivate the heart of your grandmother. Today, you are not fighting just the guys in your neighborhood or class. You are competing against the whole town if not the whole country.
4.The economic factor
People love to accuse the youth of cowardice, but I can assure that the very same men who mock “generation iPhone” would have turned out the same or worse if they were put in the modern meat grinder.
In the past, there were no sky-high student loans crushing a young life before it has even started. In addition, the critics of generation iPhone often forget that the entry-level jobs available to most young people do not pay much when you account for the rent. As a result, many adults are forced to live with their parents. This limits their freedom and hurts their self-esteem while preventing them to grow up.
The Modern World Makes You Crazy and Then Gives You Prozac
One does not have to spend a decade in the mountains to reach the revelation that the economic war, industrialization and the modern city life have resulted in a peculiar mechanism that dehumanizes people while rendering them insane.
Societies following the monetary system devalue men and turn them into humanoids reliving the same day until retirement. To the system, you are nothing but a printer that could easily be replaced at the slightest sign of malfunctioning.
As a bonus, the control structures are so complex that your vote basically has no value regardless of what the motivational speakers say. This gives men a sense of powerlessness and diminishes their drive to push forward.
People are taught that honesty and hard work are the keys to success, but we all know that it takes more than that to make it to the top. The system loves only a few whereas the rest play the role of little worshipers who should smile graciously and dedicate their existence to providing luxuries to the chosen ones. The rules (laws) apply only to the small. As we know, some are too big to fail.
Technology, education and money apparently fail to fix this issue too. Countries like Japan and South Korea are incredibly advanced and yet have exceptionally high depression and suicide rates.
What is the solution? What do you do if you don’t like it here?
“Go see a therapist,” says the crowd.
People who don’t love this world are diagnosed as crazy and sent to the shrinks who repair the patients by giving them anti-depressants and coping instructions designed to restart the robotic cycle.
This is known as the treadmill principle. The world first deprives you of your need to move by chaining you to a chair in an office or a factory and then gives you a treadmill to burn calories for the sake of burning calories. Instead of fixing the route of the problem, we create a pill that makes you forget and keep on with the program prepared by the capitalist or communist party.
The TRT propaganda works similarly. The test levels drop as a result of our crooked lifestyles highly influenced by economic demands, technology and unfavorable cultural movements. To fix everything on the surface, men are given gels and needles.
Somewhat ironically, the retro generations which allegedly had higher testosterone levels than the modern youth never had to take anything to keep their test strong. I say allegedly because testosterone measuring is more of a novelty. Today, you can easily get your levels checked, but this hasn’t always been the case.
The reason for the current discrepancies is the modern lifestyle and the war against masculinity. Back in the day, it was basically impossible to have low testosterone. Can you imagine a native American with low T? A man who lives primarily on meat, hunts and fights for survival rather than necessity. A man living in a tribe where his vote is not one in a million. A man leading a life that doesn’t revolve around a screen. A man who does more running than sitting. A man who hasn’t outsourced the protection of his life to the police and the army. By definition, no one can have low test when put in such conditions.
Undoubtedly, leading a more manly existence even just to the degree allowed by the system could raise one’s testosterone levels and in many cases may render supplementation obsolete. Of course, they don’t want you to know that because there’s always an angle.
The Incentive to Promote TRT
The system benefits financially and culturally from promoting TRT. More men diagnosed with low T equal a higher income. But it’s not just about the money.
The current drugs are a side effect of our drama. They exist because the situation we’re in demands them. If people weren’t depressed, there wouldn’t be a need for anti-depressants. However, there are other incentives too.
First, injecting testosterone directly masks the problem and negates the need for cultural changes. Second, TRT can toast a man’s balls and make him infertile – a move in line with the anti-baby economy and the anti-family notions which are partially behind the low fertility rates common for the middle class.
So what if you have as much test as a grandpa?
The PRs of TRT love repeating that millennials have the test levels of their grandfathers but frequently forget one very important fact – young males and old males are the same species. The fact that you have as much test as your grandfather does not mean that your test is dangerously low and you need to supplement with injections that may cost you your hair and fertility. Moreover, no one knows how much test your grandfather really had at your age in comparison to his grandfather since at the time the means and the need to measure those specs were not present. In other words, who is to say that the test difference between a young and an older male should be extraterrestrial?
TRT – an Excuse to Inject Steroids
Many people pray to be diagnosed with low test when they go to the doctor in order to justify their choice to inject steroids for the sole reason of building big muscles. They don’t care about the other bonus points (more energy…etc.) And since TRT technically stands for testosterone replacement therapy, some lifters still consider themselves natural because “I am taking what is rightfully mine.” Of course, that’s nonsense since the TRT doses are often far above the natural norms.
Were The Naturals From The Past Bigger Thanks To Their Mythical Test Levels
I was a supporter of this idea, but it is no longer my view. The retro natural bodybuilders were not all that different from us. Just like today, some were big and some were smaller due to genetic differences (bone structure, body chemistry, muscle insertions…etc.)
Slightly higher test levels do not result in insane muscle growth. This is why test boosters don’t have an appreciable impact on one’s size. 10-20% improvements assuming you can even get that from the supplements won’t change your physique. You have to impact things supraphysiologically to get noticeably bigger muscles. In short, you need to multiply your test levels many times to mutate into the muscle monster you have always wanted to be.
If you observe old family photos, you will see that your ancestors were not that big. They were average men that would have a hard time competing against the modern drug monsters.
The environment we live in has never been more anti-male. The Internet and in particular the online dating platforms, oversexualized entertainment, technology, feminism and social media have contributed enormously to this phenomenon. The average man is on his knees – hated by everyone and insulted for having natural desires.
When you add the economic factor and the dehumanizing properties of the so-called advanced societies, you have a recipe for suppressed testosterone.
But that does not make males today broken enough to need injections to remain men. It just makes us hurt.
