Interview with Rollo Tomassi (video)

Half-way through my trek around the United States, I was honored to meet up with, exchange thoughts, and learn from the living legend Rollo Tomassi. His blog therationalmale.com is one of the most valuable websites men can read, and his book ‘The Rational Male‘ sums up redpill philosophy in the most concise and understandable way possible. That book was a life-changer for me and helped me sustain an incredibly healthy and loving relationship with a beautiful and wonderful woman.

Even though I embrace being a cad now, being able to understand women from what Rollo has written makes getting along with them, enjoying their company, seducing them, and learning from them easy and enjoyable.

His book is absolutely essential if you want to understand relationship dynamics between men and women. It is complete, unadulterated truth that comes from a man who has lived and breathed every word he has written. Make sure you pick up a copy here.

This has been an incredible week, I have met two of the most influential writers of my adulthood (see the Jack Donovan interview here) and can safely say that these are men to look up to and learn from.

After dinner, me and Rollo sat down to enjoy the sun setting in the Nevada desert and talk about his work. Enjoy the interview and forgive the shoddy camera work.

About Goldmund

Goldmund grew up a wild-child and was constantly being disciplined. Using ancient rituals and game, he broke free from the shackles of his mind and the norms of this backwards society. He frequents bars in Brooklyn, mountains in Mexico, and retreats to the desert. His passions are nature and women.

    • Right when it ended I said, “fucking awesome.” I then scroll down and see you wrote that ha.

      It’s great to put a face to the voice. This is a must watch.

  1. On the topic of being, instead of acting (which I’m 100% in agreement with), my current position is that this isn’t something that is possible for all men, or even “most”…

    Just like the behavioral differences between males and females are the results of inborn traits (and these traits’ adaptations to the environment), not just “socialization” (the blank slate hypothesis), the behavioral differences from one male to the next are likewise the results of such inborn traits. These things can be…tweaked, but how far?

    I, for example, have had an easy time with the red pill because I’ve have always had a rather shallow emotional response. My own brother, however, has always had a terrible temper. (He takes after my father much more in that regard.) As he’s matured he’s learned to get it under control a little, but it’s still there. He’s even gotten into Buddhism, but it hasn’t suppressed it completely. The difference between us is significant enough that he claims that I’m a natural born Buddhist, even though I don’t know the first thing about Buddhism…

    This thought of mine originated while getting more involved in the conversation on r/theredpill. I’ve observed individuals who talk about the fact that, try as they might, they can’t get their emotions under control enough to keep up the act for long periods of time , much less to simply “be”.

    Any thoughts on this?

    • I like your points, and I’m still trying to decide how much of one’s personality can be influenced by active thought processes and internalizing things.

      One of the biggest revelations in college for me was “fake it til you make it”; as soon as I stopped telling girls who asked how many I slept with (an Iron Rule of Tomassi, by the way.) I saw a marked increase in girls who ate up my casually aloof or misdirective answers. It eventually came to the point where I internalized it as a behaviour rather than an intentional thought process. This led to other similar applications, and while I’m far from fully internalising the Red Pill, I would say that it makes a considerable enough impact that even if they never fully change their behavioural traits they can do enough that it doesn’t matter if they reach 100%.

      Overall I think it’s a matter of opportunity and willpower. Many men don’t get the opportunity to see Red Pill explained for them in the useful format Rollo provides, let alone the manosphere itself, and fewer still get the willpower to take on changing their behaviours let alone completing the process.
