An odd thing about knowing things is that once you know something, you immediately forget you did not always know it, and then strangely, default to assuming everybody else knows it too.
This is my experience, at any rate.
Somehow I often manage to completely forget the decades I spent flailing around not knowing things that I now take for granted… like the fact that picking up heavy things and putting them down again makes you feel amazing, skyrockets your confidence, increases your mental abilities, and connects you to the transcendent and divine in a manner that serious 1990s ecstasy devotees could but dream of. I only worked that out relatively recently, due to some errors in my upbringing and the devious and evil propaganda I suffered, that convinced the young me that artistically inclined types like myself didn’t engage with physicality, and the sorts of people that did were dumb meatheads (inversion as usual, the people I meet in gyms are typically the most wise and cerebral one could hope to encounter). No, what I should be doing, the cultural propaganda suggested, was LOADS AND LOADS OF DRUGS!
Well, I am a little wiser these days, and I know many things that once I did not (or that once I did and external programming made me forget), and I often find myself confused as to how some people are in such a mess, when the answers to most of life’s difficulties are so obvious and have been known to us as a species for so long. I mean, it’s in The Bible. It’s in Meditations. It’s in MEANINGWAVE®.
It’s in THE MANUAL.
THE MANUAL is a concise and sometimes spit-your-spleen-out funny compendium of those things you really ought to know from the get go, that perhaps you suspected all along, maybe had hammered out of you, eventually working them out for yourself via years of miserable trail and error… or perhaps are in the process of. It’s the perfect thing to give to a nephew, say, who’s perhaps interfacing with the more grotesque aspects of the contemporary world and needs things explaining to him in laykid’s terms before he plunges into an inescapable abyss of porn and weed and Fortnite and othersuch modern man-made horrors.
The author is one Dr Josh Lekach, a fine based fellow who hosts a culturally influential show called WRONG OPINION on Gumroad, in the manner pioneered by the esteemable Sam Hyde - only making small-clips available on normie feeds like Instagram and Youtube, thus that his words may remain true, and that he needn’t engage in any self-censoring soul-retardation, and have to say needlessly doublepluscringe things like “unalive oneself” and “R-word” and “places that people concentrate in” in order to placate an ever shifting demonic algorithm.
Josh says he wrote this for his son, “just in case I die an unexpected fiery death”, and it comes off like a slightly more in-depth, based and practical version of Tom Waits immortal Little Man.
You can read THE MANUAL in under an hour, and it covers many of the basics that a young man needs to know:
A meaningful life requires suffering (duh)
Porn is bad m’kay (megaduh, if you can’t control your most base urges how you expect to achieve anything in this veil of tears, aside from the fact you’re feeding The Literal Beast Itself smh etc)
How to make self stronk and dangerous
How to find good homies
How to find decent woman
How to resist psyops
What to eat and not to eat (steak good, vegetables bad, duh)
Health, hygine, grooming
How to avoid throwing yourself off a bridge
And so on! Those things they should teach in school, but don’t, because they don’t actually want you to succeed at becoming that glorious ultimate version of yourself that exists in potential, just like that statue of David was always hanging out in that rock, waiting for Michelangelo to come along and tease him out… No, friend, they want you sick and fat and weak and compliant and entirely unable to challenge them in anyway whatsoever because you’re too busy lying around in a pile of soy-dust jacking-off and sobbing yourself to sleep in your pod.
WELL BUGGER THAT! THE MANUAL IS HERE TO UN-SOY A GENERATION OF ADULT HUMAN MALES! REJOICE BRAVE HUMANITY! WEEP, SOY-DEMONS! YOUR REIGN OF MISERY IS AT AN END!
(Incidentally, if I were to say it was missing anything, that would be something on the subject of Finance, but I am reliably informed that’s going to be in another book.)
Forsooth then! This is a fantastic no-fucking-around funny and foundational tome, a perfect gift for the young men in your circumference that need some basic direction and can’t be fucked to wade through Meditations or 12 Rules For Life or 50 episodes of Jocko Podcast and have somehow not yet been baptized in the glory of MEANINGWAVE® (maybe they lack ears or some othersuch affliction). It’s also a great refresher for those that think they’ve got everything figured out - hey, maybe you do! Or maybe (like me) there was something that even super-smart mega-genius You was missing? (Feel free to speculate as to what it was in my case in the comments when you’ve read the book, and I shall let you know in a future missive. Also you speculate as to the ONE thing I completely disagree with…)
Thusforth! BOOK 👏 RE 👏 VIEW: Book good. To the point and funny and dense with righteousness like diamond. May save many lives. Great work Josh, muy chido. High fives all round. 😤 Go cop THE MANUAL today, because you or someone in your life might just benefit from it greatly!
LOVE TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY! ONLY YOU CAN SAVE MANKIND!
