My Year In Review: Four Articles To Consider In 2014

2013 has been a pretty interesting year for ROK. The site has grown tremendously and I’m happy to have been a part of it. In celebration of the year’s end, I thought it prudent to take the time to look back at some of my best articles, some of which could be of value to the newer denizens of ROK. While I feel that all my articles can offer substantial value to readers, these four hit most directly on substantive lessons and themes that are crucial to this website’s mission and message.

1. Why This Site Will Always Be Creepy


ROK’s growth this year and involvement in several viral episodes has brought a lot of hate this way. As per usual, much of this hate resorts to the use of terms like “creepy” to describe anyone who writes for or reads articles on this website and those like it.

This article will illustrate to you clearly why such claims are not only empty, but entirely impossible to stem and generally unworthy of engagement. Male self-improvement is has always been “creepy” to women and always will be. Your job is not to care.

2. How Black America Has Predicted Our Future


This was my first post of 2013. Plenty of time is spent in the manosphere discussing the future of American (and, more broadly, western) society and the some of the negative trends spreading within it. This discussion still draws much interest today in the manosphere and I suspect it will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. This article will prove useful for those looking for a precedent capable of showing what our society’s potential destination may look like.

3. What Do You Bring To The Table?


Self-reflection is crucial for any male concerned with self-improvement, but is too often forgotten by those who are romantically frustrated. When striving to obtain more socially from others, men (like women) must always be aware of what they bring to the table. Never lose sight of this or delude yourself into thinking it isn’t worth paying attention to. If you want quality in your romantic life, you must do all you can to ensure that you are of quality yourself.

4. How Thirsty Men Kill Everyone’s Game


Contrary to popular belief, feminists are not the biggest enemy of the red-pill male. That role is occupied by other men – white knights, simps, and genuinely thirsty individuals.
It is imperative that all males concerned with self-improvement understand the behavior associated with these men, and avoid it at all costs.

Bonus: Effortless Attraction


This post was written at the end of December 2012, but contains a message so crucial that I’ve deemed it worthy of space in this review. The post answers several fundamental questions: What are we striving for here at ROK? What is the end game, the goal? What do we hope to accomplish? What is the point of “game” and the red pill?

This article answers all of those questions and can quiet those who claim that “game” (and sites like ROK that promote it along with the red pill truths inherent to it) is nothing more than useless misogyny that can benefit no sensible man. There is a benefit here, and it is one that all young men concerned with substantive self-improvement should strive to obtain.

ROK has taken many steps forward in 2013 in what has been quite an interesting ride. With these messages in mind, here’s hoping we can all make 2014 even more remarkable than its predecessor.

  1. How Black America Has Predicted Our Future
    The 3/5 human absconded farm animals will continue to work with the Feminists,, NOW, GLAAD and the rest of the liberals to Take down the “white-hetero-cis-male establishment”.
    I’ll be going to the polls to defend all of you scum again in Nov.
    Cry as you fail

      1. I care enough to vote for those who will allow me to keep my money instead of feeding worthless, shit-colored children. I’ll vote for those who will allow me to “Stand my Ground” and kill those who trespass on my property.
        Cry as you fail.

        1. Your racism will show no benefit to you as a man. Please step away, become an actual man, and return a King. As of now, you are a jester.

  2. Your first article this year was the first article I read on ROK. I couldn’t stop thinking about the implications of that view for weeks. It was hard to swallow that the problems in the black community were so easily definable, and so terrifically destructive.
    Seriously, I still, nearly a year later, can’t stop thinking about the implications of that extraordinarily pure exploration of the real reasons that society decays. Hats off to you for that article, imho, it’s the most powerful message in the red pill universe.

    1. the black america article is great, but there is no conclusion ?
      since white america supports and polices black america…. if all america goes down the hole of black america…. what do you have ?
      kinda mad max lifestyle… ? guns and animal / tribal existence ?

  3. It was the article where Jezebel broke their silence on ROK that made me “discover” the site. Having always been a lucky natural alpha, the writing here has kept me glued to the screen ever since. Keep up the good work.

      1. It is said that if you know your enemies
        and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if
        you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and
        lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be
        imperiled in every single battle.-Sun Tzu

    1. Ah, hoisted by their own petard. Jezebel is so full of retards. they directed people here by telling people NOT to come here.

  4. I reread “How Black America Has Predicted Our Future” and was reminded of Lindy West’s “Flight of the Wildebeest” event and how the rest of America is rapidly approaching the predictions described therein. That post will be quoted quite often as our decline accelerates.

  5. What’s with the picture of the socialist in chief?
    * pushing for women in combat roles
    * homo’s in scouts
    * endorsing same sex marriage
    * wanting an end to the “violence” in football
    * administering more incentives and loans for single mothers
    * appointing manjaws to lead the secret service
    * pushing for loans to people with bad credit
    Kind of a conflict of interest with what this place espouses?

    1. i think you’re reading too much into the picture choice. he’s just putting up a picture of a black man in power chilling and thinking about the stuff he’s done.
      is quite an apt photo for year in review i think, and too athlone, glad you’re on rok dude

  6. Athlone McGinnis, you would do well no matter WHAT medium you used expressed your views. ROK should feel lucky and be grateful to have you as a contributor. You are an amazing abstract thinker, more than I can say for some bloggers on this site.
    You are an asset to ROK. You connect with men and women alike. Thank you for making the world a better place. Blessings are sent your way. Thank you for all that you do. I love you.
