The Red Pill Bookshelf

"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Seems like over half the Manosphere is made up of men who think that discovering Game and using it to understand how women think, what they are attracted to, and how to get laid is the sum totality of what the "RED PILL" represents.

Contrary to one of my earlier posts stated belief, that Game is the Red Pill, I've come to the conclusion that Game is only one aspect of the search for the truth. The "MATRIX" is in fact an entire system created to enslave us all while making us believe that we are "free." The Matrix IS our Brave New World Order.

The raison d'être of the Matrix, is in fact total population control. Not just how many people mate and reproduce, but how we think, act and behave as one part of the collective entity called humanity.

Unplugging from the Matrix requires far more than simply deprogramming the socially engineered programs to indoctrinate we the sheeple in dysfunctional thoughts and behaviors regarding sex, gender and procreation. Other areas of deprogramming cover banking, money (debt), diet, exercise, the system of education and understanding the true structure of "society."

Gaining an understanding of the big picture of our Brave New World Order has never been easier than the current epoch of the free flow of information now made available via teh Interwebz. Better yet, just about every resource you need to grasp this big picture is available for free by downloading and reading these 10 books:

1984 - by George Orwell

Brave New World
- by Aldous Huxley

Rules For Radicals (pdf)
- by Saul Alinsky

The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America
- by Charlotte Iserbyt

The Underground History of American Education
- by John Taylor Gatto

The Garbage Generation
- by Dr. Daniel Amneus

The Case for Father Custody (pdf)
- By Dr. Daniel Amneus

Nutrition and  Physical Degeneration: A Comparison of Primitive and Modern Diets and Their Effects
- by Dr. Weston A. Price

The Creature From Jekyll Island (pdf)
- by G. Edward Griffin

The Protocols of the Banksters of Rothschild
- by Lucifer's Sycophants

Of all the books listed, this last is the most controversial. It's been called a forgery, a fraud, a blood libel and nothing more than a screed of anti-semitism propagated by racists and hatemongers. Due to it's extremely controversial and inflammatory nature, it is also the only book I'm going to have to write a disclaimer and explanation for on this post. I am not an Anti-Semite (I hate all races equally...misanthropy FTW!).

I anticipate sometime in the near future that anyone linking to, quoting or downloading the Protocols may be itself considered a thought crime or an exercise in criminalized hate speech, so I say read it now while you still can. You don't have to accept it, endorse it or advocate for it to simply read it.

I suggest one should simply read the text in it's entirety with an open and impartial eye to understand what it is describing and advocating, and you will quickly realize that the Protocols are really just a blueprint for how the elite 1%'s have been dividing and conquering we the sheeple for generations now. Trying to lay the blame for this on an entire class of people - aka teh Joooooos! - is a complete red herring. As I wrote about over a year ago in the comment threads for my post, The Tyranny of Usury:

I do not cite the PEOZ to "prove" the "Jews" are responsible or liable or guilty of anything.

Seriously, some of my best friends are Jews. LOL

However, Jews like the Rothschilds have certainly used the perception of Jews as the most unjustly persecuted people in world history as a cover.

And if you actually read the POEZ, you quickly understand that it's really not about promoting anti-semitism, but rather understanding the mindset of the ruling elite.

Substitute the word "Gyoim" with "Sheeple" and you see precisely how we, the Proletariat of the Brave New World Order are just "cattle" to the elite powerbrokers and oppressors of all humanity.

The race/ethnicity of the authors of the Protocols is immaterial. Your neighborhood Jewish person is most assuredly not "in on the Conspiracy." Most Jewish folks are just as much victims, dupes and/or useful idiots of the Protocols designs for Global Government as any other class or race of we the sheeple in our Brave New World Order. Remember: We are ALL Zionists now!

There's a reason why I listed The Creature From Jekyll Island second to last on this list, just prior to the Protocols.If anyone wants to really look at who's behind the implementation of the Protocols, simply look at the names of those involved in The Creature From Jekyll Island. You want to point the finger at those responsible, you'll find no better target to apportion the blame on then those men who conspired to enslave the world with their debt-based Central Banking plans.

Protocol 20:

What also indeed is, in substance, a loan, especially a foreign loan? A loan is - an issue of government bills of exchange containing a percentage obligation commensurate to the sum of the loan capital. If the loan bears a charge of 5 per cent, then in twenty years the State vainly pays away in interest a sum equal to the loan borrowed, in forty years it is paying a double sum, in sixty - treble, and all the while the debt remains an unpaid debt.

From this calculation it is obvious that with any form of taxation per head the State is baling out the last coppers of the poor taxpayers in order to settle accounts with wealthy foreigners, from whom it has borrowed money instead of collecting these coppers for its own needs without the additional interest.

Now were these preceding paragraphs really sourced from a forgery? Does it matter? They sure seem to accurately account for the current state of all Western Nation's that have Central Banks in charge of their monetary policies. For this reason alone, a serious, contemplative reading of the Protocols is necessary to understanding the reality of the world we all live in.


I've read most of these books I've listed at least twice, and some of them several times over. Taken in sum total consideration, it becomes apparent that this system we call "society," was deliberately designed to make us go mad:

The social engineers that have shaped our society and our culture have a full, working knowledge of our human natures, our desires, our biological imperatives, and our instinctive proclivities...and they have deliberately and deviously gone about subverting, distorting and contorting those needs, wants and desires to create a script for which we unknowingly and unwittingly follow...immersing ourselves into lives of artificial constructs that deliberately go against our natural state of equilibrium.

If you ever feel like you're going crazy in a world gone mad, that is precisely your cognitive dissonance of your natural instincts clashing with the unnatural script you are trying to follow to achieve "success" and "happiness." This purposely instilled discombobulation was designed to leave you confused, tired, overworked, and in ill health, unable to contemplate their devious machinations to subtly and covertly control your life.

To put it in even simpler terms - to render you easily manipulated, our Brave New World Order's social engineers have deliberately scrambled our understanding of gender relationship roles, familial roles, dietary nutrition and health, understanding of finance and economics, and a proper understanding of education.

These 10 books I listed come together to present us all with a clear picture of our current reality. Our countries are in decline, the economy is tanking, and the foundation of civilization - the nuclear family - is being torn apart.

In addition to these 10 free e-books I've linked here, another good source of red pill knowledge would be the compiled list of required reading by the manosphere's most infamous commenter THE GREAT BOOKS FOR MEN.

All men should begin immediately by reading the following books which the central bankers and their fellow churchians hate, fear, and detest:

1. Homer’s Iliad
2. Homer’s Odyssey
3. Exodus & Ecclesiastes & The Psalms
4. Virgil’s Aeneid
5. Socrates’ Apology
6. The Book of Matthew & Jefferson’s Bible
7. Plato’s Repulic
8. Seneca’s Letters from a Stoic
9. Aristotle’s Poetics
10. Dante’s Inferno
11. The Declaration of Independence
12. The Constitution
13. John Milton’s Paradise Lost
14. Shakespeare’s Hamlet
15. Newton’s Principia
16. Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations and Theory of Moral Sentiments
17. Henry David Thoreau’s Walden
18. Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn (& all of his work)
19. Shakespeare’s Hamlet
20. Ludwig von Mises’ A Theory of Money and Credit
21. F.A. Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom
22. Herman Melville’s Moby Dick
23. Einstein’s The Meaning of Relativity
24. Joseph Campbell’s The Hero With a Thousand Faces and The Power of Myth
25. Ron Paul’s Revolution & End the Fed

The list of free e-books I provide here are important in understanding how and why we are, where we are today. GBFM's list represents the canon of Western literature, and is important in understanding, rediscovering and preserving the ideals that has been lost, subverted and obscured by all the social engineering through public education and mass media indoctrination we've all been subjected to.

I've read most of GBFM's list, but there are a few I've yet to get to (4, 6, 8 15 & 24). Anybody have any further suggestions to add to either list?

Let's all get on with our red pill readings!

I'm curious as to why you're so big on the Bible? To me, that's the ultimate social control book. It had a pretty good run until the printing press (and then the internet) compelled the powers that be to start using consumerist psychology instead of religious shaming to achieve their societal control goals. My personal suspicion is that the Bible was some kind of ancient spell-book, perhaps, that got so mistranslated and added on to with history and rules for living that it's become somewhat of an incoherent mess (if you're trying to take it literally without cherry-picking, that is).

I find it funny that a lot of red pill enthusiasts still look to 'God' and the 'Bible'. I mean, religion is pretty explicit: "the Lord is my shepherd"......so, if you're religious, you're still a sheep! Why this remaining bit of cognitive dissonance? Ditch it all, religion included, I say!

Seriously, though, what are your reasons for still suggesting it?

Bob Wallace said...

The Bible is full of good practical wisdom about the imperfections of people. People who say it's not worth reading most probably have not read it.

I would also add Aesop's Fables and The Brothers Grimm. Again, good practical wisdom about the human race.

Amy said...

Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories and his poetry.

Edmund Burke, Letters on a Regicide Peace. Exposes liberal hypocrisies quite succinctly, centuries before our own modern clash with liberal "principles."

Tolkien's Ring Trilogy and The Hobbit. It's all there: the fall, the temptation of evil, the struggle of small numbers of good men, faithless men, reticent men and penitent men, to be liberated from control and evil. The films pale in comparison to the sweeping scope of the written works, and they are worthy of a full study in their own right.

I would add The Well-Trained Mind by Susan Wise Bauer and Jesse Wise. It's less of a book with a story as it is a guide and framework to the hows and whys of a classical Trivium based homeschool education, even if you only use it to supplement your child's public school education.

Heinlein's The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress.

Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451

Ayn Rand's Anthem. I'm not a big Randy but it appears that we are descending into the type of society described in the book. All knowledge lost and only cautiously rediscovered lest we exault any one person or thing above another. Available as free .pdf download from many places.

Excellent list, KG.

"I'm curious as to why you're so big on the Bible?"

Can't answer for Keoni, but for myself: because roughly 2,000 years ago a dude claimed to be God and rose from the dead, so my choices are pretty much accept that he's my master or declare him Real Ultimate Evil and live in open rebellion against him.

"My personal suspicion is that the Bible... got so mistranslated and added on to with history and rules for living that it's become somewhat of an incoherent mess

The Bible is a collection of History, Poetry, and Prophesy that was endorsed by said formerly dead guy, followed by the teachings of the formerly dead guy as recorded by his immediate followers. Using the same standards we have for other ancient texts, we know that what we have is roughly 90% accurate to the originals, which is both good enough to go on and a damn sight better than we can say about any other ancient text.

"I find it funny that a lot of red pill enthusiasts still look to 'God' and the 'Bible'. I mean, religion is pretty explicit: "the Lord is my shepherd"......so, if you're religious, you're still a sheep!"

People are sheep, period. The question is not will you be a sheep or a free person, but rather will you follow a shepherd who thinks of you as his child, or a shepherd who thinks of you as tomorrow's mutton.

Everyone worships something. Most of us, the religious included, worship sex. Religion is not the Matrix, it is a fundamental element of human nature that can be abused by the Matrix.

"Seriously, though, what are your reasons for still suggesting it?"

1) The Bible claims the existence of a law to which all are beholden, from the highest king to the lowest slave. This is the foundation for the concept of Lex Rex, the concept that the King, instead of having total control, must also follow external laws -- the same laws as everybody else -- which in turn is the foundation of the concept of inalienable rights, which is the foundation of freedom in general.

2) Moving forward in time is no guarantee of progress. We are no more right about any given thing than our ancestors by the mere virtue of coming after them. Every age has particular errors to which it is prone. Now, in four or five generations, the people of that day will be able to look at the consequences of our actions, and see our stupidity clearly, just as we can see some of the foolishness of those who came before us. Unfortunately, we don't have access to our great-grandchildren's hindsight.

What we do have access to is our ancestors' recorded thoughts. And just as we fancy we get right some of the things they got wrong, so also it is reasonable to assume some of what we're getting wrong, they got right. Thus, we can profit greatly by reading the works of those who have gone before. Whenever their views contradict ours, we should not snort in derision, but rather try to examine both sides impartially. This is part of why over half of GBFM's list is drawn from antiquity.

Go and actually read the Bible (and learn some ancient history) before you embarrass yourself any further. It can only be used as a means of social control against ignorant people who don't know its contents.

Amy said...

Co-sign, Myrddin. Human nature is. The Bible explains it, and gives us power to recognize it and temper it in our daily lives. How we do it tends to be individual, but the tools are all therein. Nothing new under the sun.

Keoni, I would add City of God and Confessions by Augustine of Hippo. He lived through the decline and fall of the great civilization of his time, the Roman Empire. His writings reveal much of what it means for an empire to die and how people live through the chaos.

Also, Aquinas' Summa Theologica. It's Catholic, and catholic - in the sense that natural law is the philosophy that thrums through the entire work. If the original text is too much to handle (it is very dense and deep), then F.C. Copleston's Aquinas is a good introduction and overview of Thomist philosophy.

The works of Mario Vargas Llosa. Radical libertarianism rising out of the ashes of corrupt societies. You'd love the themes and stories.

Ben Franklin's autobiography

Saint Velvet said...

The House of Mirth, Wharton
The Age of Innocence, Wharton

Complete Stories, O'Connor

A Confederacy of Dunces, Toole

Not as heavy weight as the GBFM titles, certainly, but excellent cultural insight, particularly for women who are experiencing cultural red pill pangs, when learning to stand on the outside and look in.

Thank you for the list.

@Myrddrin :
Ah, but here's the issue: if sheep NEEDED a shepherd to live, they'd have gone extinct without one long before humans started keeping them as livestock. However, feral sheep are fine on their own! So what is the purpose of a shepherd? Certainly not a requirement to keep the sheep alive or care for them. Therefore, there must be something in it for the shepherd, and no shepherd bothers to go to the trouble of keeping sheep without wanting something from them, whether it be non-lethal wool gathering, or mutton!

Therefore I contend, humans are NOT sheep, (sheep are not even 'sheep'!)...we were bred to be livestock in this society, and there IS a choice, to be feral! Cast off ALL shepherds, either tangible (gov't) or imaginary (God).

@rycamor :
After getting past the ad hominem attack that reveals how threatened you feel that someone might not be in your Bible-reading club, I find it interesting that your comment reminds me of a lot of the gun rights defenders' arguments. That is to say, 'Bibles don't kill people, people kill people'. I'm not anti-gun, and I'm not necessarily anti-Bible, but I just find it telling how close to weapons-grade the Bible can be, which makes it even more dangerous in the hands of a person who reads it incorrectly than one who does not read it at all.

Eric said...

Keoni Galt:
Another free download you might find useful:


This was a handbook for cognitive infiltrators written by Soviet police chief Laverenti Beria. Technology has advanced somewhat, but the methodology is exactly the same.

rycamor said...


Why would I feel threatened? It's not ad-hominem or I would be attacking your character in some way in order to discredit your argument. I know nothing of your character but your argument is so close to begging the question that it is hardly needs discrediting.

If you thought the term "ignorant" was an insult directed at you, it wasn't. Just pointing out that the "Bible as social control" approach is only possible against those who are ignorant of its contents. All through the Bible you find that God wants His people to be free of those that would enslave them via force and deception. In fact, God clearly tells the Israelites not to choose a king, and warns them of the injustices and heartache to come if they do.

In the context of the "red pill" truths we find in the manosphere there is a good reason the Bible comes up often, even for those who don't believe in God: for just about every red pill truth that is "discovered" in modern times, you will find the Bible was already there, millenia ago. Human nature hasn't changed, and the Bible is simple the best predictor and explainer of this behavior that you will find.

Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

"Therefore I contend, humans are NOT sheep, (sheep are not even 'sheep'!)...we were bred to be livestock in this society, and there IS a choice, to be feral! Cast off ALL shepherds, either tangible (gov't) or imaginary (God)."

Pure leftism. It always degenerates into destroyed societies.

Amy said...

@Bob Wallace,

I meant to add to my earlier Marcus Aurelius response that your post "Koros to Hubris to Ate to Nemesis" reminded me to add Meditations to the list.

Radical individualism will always fail. We are all part of some herd or other; the question is which master do you follow?

Anonymous said...

Most comments losing track here. The theme of this post is the universality of the Matrix, and thus the Red Pill Awakening. One book that addresses this universality, other than the Bible, is Harry Browne's How I Found Freedom In An Unfree World.

I find this short story quite a lot like the modern existence.


Doktor Bill said...

I would add The Mote in God's Eye (trilogy) by Jerry Pournelle & Larry Niven(All of their collaborations are well done)also Animal Farm and Lord of the Flies as those seem to have been confused with training manuals lately.

I condemn the bankers and their puppets not so much for their greed but for their appalling leadership and pathetic lack of vision. Their new world odor smells like the same old rotting empire to me. What is their vision for humanity? A police state? Billions of slaves to serve them? A boot stomping on a human face forever?
Sorry not good enough.
How about some better visions? Mankind explores space and lives on new planets. Cancer and Alzheimer’s go the way of smallpox and polio. Better energy sources and pollution cleaned up. An army of jesters to wander the world and make children laugh and old ladies giggle and blush. How about anything other than the endless greed, ignorance and violence that out so called leaders teach now?
I am sure the bankers and their puppets have some kind of cheap rationalization for their evil actions. “We are God’s chosen people” “It has always been this way” “survival of the fittest” “the ends justify the means” They have given up on humanity and this is the greatest crime of all. They are unfit to lead anyone.
Even a little child could come up with a more meaningful vision for humanity. The first will be the last.

I would include the following:

1) Robert Heinlein's novels, including "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" and the Lazarus Long stories (Time Enough for Love, Door into Summer).

2) Atlas Shrugged and Capitalism: the Unknown Ideal, by Ayn Rand

3) Voyage From Yesteryear by James P Hogan

4) anything by Murray Rothbard

(Formerly just Myddin. My Google account is on this computer).

"Ah, but here's the issue: if sheep NEEDED a shepherd to live, they'd have gone extinct without one long before humans started keeping them as livestock. "

Sheep don't need a shepherd to live. They do, however, need a shepherd who desires them for reasons other than sustenance to not be prey. Also, the Christian would argue that sheep have had shepherds as long as they have existed. Your analogy may be valid with reference to some other religion, but it does not address Christianity.

"Therefore, there must be something in it for the shepherd, and no shepherd bothers to go to the trouble of keeping sheep without wanting something from them, whether it be non-lethal wool gathering, or mutton!"

In one of the analogies used in the Bible, the shepherd in question kept his sheep as pets.

I would be lying if I said I do not envy my cat.

"Therefore I contend, humans are NOT sheep, (sheep are not even 'sheep'!)...we were bred to be livestock in this society, and there IS a choice, to be feral! Cast off ALL shepherds, either tangible (gov't) or imaginary (God)."

And I have already contended that those who claim to be feral simply do not recognize their shepherd, and that the existence of God was historically validated by a resurrection. Your contention presumes that Christianity is false and is therefore circular -- you contend that you are right because if we assume for the sake of argument that you are right, then clearly you are right.

Your contention is therefore not an argument, but nothing more than a statement of disagreement. Which I would respect more, were it not for your opening question to which I responded. I have provided the reasons you requested as requested. If you wish to debate them, then debate them. If you wish to dismiss them, that is your own business.

If you're going to have "1984" on the list, you should also include "Animal Farm". Much less grim-dark, just as thought-provoking.

Also, I have to agree with "They Live" being a better analogue to the Manosphere/Rep Pill thinking than "The Matrix" (I forget who made the case last year, it just struck me as being very true.)

Democracy: The God That Failed by Hans-Hermann Hoppe

And, of course, anything by Ludwig von Mises and Murray Rothbard.

YoungMan RP said...


The bible is the most widely read, widely printed book in the history of mankind. I don't give a shit if you are religious or not, so much of western thought is built on the bible that if you want to be a well read person, read it. It will help you understand the fabric of western society.

And, it is pretty friggin hilarious if you ask me. Especially the old testament and the Apocalypse.

My list thus far:
1984-one of my fav books ever
Walden-Read it while I was in the Peace Corps. Amazing if pompous at parts.
The constitution and the dec of independence as well. I def need to read some more of the classics though.

Korsgaard said...

Yeah, I would stay away from the stuff that's even possibly anti-Semitic. It's a fast way to lose credibility with me, no matter what else you say. There's a reason why any time a two-bit tyrant seeks to enslave his people, the first target is the Jews - so I tend not to trust anyone who says not to trust the Jews.

I would add a few books to your recommended reading list in their place.

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
Little Brother by Cory Doctorow
The SAS Survival Guide by Lofty Wiseman
The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith
The Art of War by Sun Tzu

Dr. Illusion said...

Why on Earth would the Bible not be on any list of books to read?

Religious or not, you will find that if you model your life after the tenets of the Bible, you will lead a much happier and more fulfilling life.

Bear in mind, most of what you hear about the Bible is false. Nowhere does it say you cannot drink, cannot smoke or most of the other things you hear from preachers. Having dozens of wives and concubines is also not forbidden, though it is taught that no good will come of it.

Eric said...

Ought to have something by Nietzsche on the list - I suggest Thus Spake Zarathrusa. (My spelling may be off.) There should be free versions on-line.
