          This b***h just copied how to win friends and influence peope then tacked on being selfish and domineering to it. Basically the same thing but it feeds the ego, this is why only black rappers and prisoners read it. Almost every single principle in the 48 rules of power can be reconstructed by using hoe to win friends and influence people mashed up with basic b***h art of war quotes you can find anywhere.

          Read those instead of reading something that reads like an alpha male manipulator sigma course. You WILL alienate everyone in your life if you read this book

      that's what nobody gets about these books. actual powerful people don't read them, they learned all these quasi-sociopathic tactics either with their own experimentation or more likely from their also-powerful parents. if you think you're going to just learn how to be powerful if you read enough social psychology books, you were never going to make it.

      I think the flaw is that the second people realise you're pulling tricks and manipulating them, they will despise you and never trust you again.
      Isn't it better to just be honest, and to try to do right by people and by your own principles, instead of LARPing as a supervillain?

      Do you want to be Sam Hyde? Because I don't think Sam Hyde even wants to be Sam Hyde anymore. The jig is up, and everyone just sees him as kind of a homosexual now.

        Every single book on how to talk to people warns about coming off as phoney. The moment people get the slightest impression that you're trying to pull some bullshit they will shut you off completely and in the case of 48 laws of power they will fricking kill you.
        If you don't intend to put it into practice, it's good to at least know the tricks of people who are trying to. It's like dealing with salesmen 24/7.

        Larping as a super villian can get you results. There just needs to be nuance about it. Of course if you are going around being a mustache twirling evil homosexual people will catch on and hate you.

        Sam Hyde is an interesting example I never thought of him as some kind of Machiavellian manipulative guy. I have watched a lot of youtube shit of his and I only recall one such tacitc he taught me.

        >just talk at people. If someone is jamming you up, there are times where your only recourse is to verbally punish them with long sob stories and make them eventually give in just to get rid of you

        That is actually a good lesson which I have used. I ended up getting a library card in a city that I don't live in by using this tactic. Just talking at some poor librarian girl for like 20 minutes until she was desperate to get rid of me. I don't think this some super villian shit, its really just a strategy to deal with the unnatural power dynamics that civilization brings. In our natural evolutionary environment, nobody has power over you unless they are willing to kill you. Civilization creates these fricked up situations where that is not the case, and you need to have prepared strategems to deal with it, otherwise you just caveman rage and get arrested. If you are like me anyway.

      The behaviour of every person can be explained by being either attempts to fulfill a psychological need, or calculated moves to aquire more power.
      Once you're phsychology-pilled and power-pilled, everyones actions around you suddenly make sense. I have never seen or heard of an action taken by a human which underlying motive can be logicically reduced to "love" or "kindness" or "ethics", it's all power or psychological confusion on the deepest level.

            Start with trying to make a cashier laugh. People you must interact with anyway. Try to brighten their day with some humor or something. Make yourself understand that talking to people is doing them a favor. You are entertaining yourself and you are entertaining another person. It is win win. Start with old men and easy targets, if you can get an old man laughing and smiling, you can do the same with a pretty girl, given some calibration.

            I don't do it as often, but when I do, I try to find something that sounds like a good reason to talk to that person. I talked to that girl about her book, I talked to another girl about her nails, I talked to some guy waiting in line for the time and then said something like "man this is taking a long time amirite" and people just talk.
            I am also always open to being told to frick off. It hasn't happened yet, but I kind of want it to happen just to feel how bad it stings.

        I have actually done this thought experiment before and the way I would start my cult is through alcoholics anonymous. Its half way to being a cult itself, but if you find yourself in a position where you are running meetings (which is extremely easy if you voice a desire to do so), you can quickly find yourself in a position of authority over very vulnerable people. Even better if you become a sponsor.

            You make the addicts do community service, like for example using them to give away toys and food to other vulnerable people, who you invite to your meetings in your nascent church.
            And you use social media to show the world what a good boy you and your gaggle of recovering addicts are.
            And you keep preaching about Jesus and making people do things to spread the word of this new church thing you got going on.

            But yeah once you have some kind of following you grow by getting your memebers to evangelize. The hard step is going from 0 to 1. Once you have followers you have all kinds of ways of growing. Each follower has their own soical network which you can attempt to exploit.

            Nixium, the cult of keith reinere, is fascinating because originally targeted corporate executives. I wish I could know precisely how he did this. He kind of proved that vulnerability might be over stated and that, if you are good enough, everyone is vulnerable.

            Yeah but to my mind, mansons shit only worked because he was targeting literally moronic, homeless, young hippie girls. To do the same with people making 300k a year driving sports cars is no small feat.

            There are legendary stories about Korean veterans who were captured by the Chinese in the war were returned home thoroughly brainwashed. Like literally just thought Mao Zedong was a great guy for the rest of their lives. They say that the chinese used a method which was all about writing essays. Like just make the prison write an essay about why communism is good every day for a year and then they suddenly believe it.

            I have to believe keith used some kind of system like this to brain wash people. Making them write things over and over at his "workshops". But the details are thin and I have never been able to find good examples of how this works via google.

            I would say that if anything it's the people who don't live with the constant pressure of survival that happen to be more exploitable. It's easier to aim for Maslow's need for interpersonal self-actualization and use religion, myth or occult symbology to get your rich boy's club started. Double down on the occult mysticism if you're looking for women, which are easier targets and is something Keith nailed with his approach.
            It's easier to feel life is that much more meaningless and look for belonging and meaning when you have time to look back and ask yourself what's it all for. Should even mention cults like the Moonies have actual politicians in their ranks, and they didn't groom them for the role.

    I, too, constantly fantasize about becoming a charismatic cult leader-like figure that can talk and charm people into doing heinous things. I've read some books about it and at some point you just relaize it's the same advice over and over. Even PUA books end up doing the same shit over and over again. Smile, be a good listener, talk more about them than yourself and so on.
    The only thing that really helped me was pirating the Straight Line Persuasion Method by Jordan Belfort if only to see how he talks and behaves. I've been taking some oratory classes and even theatre and all it comes down to really is confidence. That's it. You have to look and behave as if your balls are huge and you know what the frick you're doing at all times and people will kneel because most people live in uncertainty and unconsciously looking for father figures in religion and politics.

      Pretty much. I would say that you don't even need charisma if you have enough balls and you are just DOMINANT as frick toward people. Look at Charles Manson. He is a like 5'5 and literally has a moron tier IQ. He succeeded because he found very vulnerable girls, and he was confident ordering them around. Cults really all hinge there existing a certain kind of woman who responds well to over the top dominance. Cult followers are all women, and some men who simply want to be in the cult for access to the women.

    If you want actual power and influence that belongs to you and no one else you should totally not do the things said in the book. It's a catch 22. 'Do the things powerful people do so they might perceive you as a useful goy and elevate your position so you can be a more useful goy'. That's not real power though. You'd get a lot of material wealth at best, but real power, no. To acquire real power you should rid yourself of all material ambitions because they will just distract you from amassing power.
    The first thing in order to become powerful is to rid yourself from the chains of reliance on superior providers. If you are working a job that is not a power position, quit, or work for as long as you saved like, a thousand grands, buy some real estate or a farm and depending on what you bought, get some tenants or farm workers so you can earn an income without working for it.
    Now you have acquired a lot of power: you have an independant source of income, and you have endless free time.
    This endless free time you can now spend hanging around with rich and powerful people as one of their kind and not stuck in a position that is inherently inferior to them.
    The steps that follow the previous one are entirely dependant on ambition and luck.
