There is no Poon I: Game as Tools

Whenever another references what I have to say about Game they always come back to the “Set of Tools” argument.

“No, no, Cane! You’ve got it all wrong. Game is not inherently wicked. Game is a tabula rasa-”

“Tabula rasa? That some kind of fancy Mexican table; like a Lazy Susan?”

Sigh. “It’s a set of tools, from which you can pick and choose what tool you need for which-”

“Yeah, like I said: a Mexican Lazy Susan.”

“-ever the occasion requires. You don’t have to use them all, and, yes, some of them should not be used by Christians.”

Balls, I say, to my worthy friend and trusty sparring partner, The Gentleman Poet.

The Sufficiency of Scripture

In the interest of delivering a full post-as-rebuttal experience, I need to address a foundational error in his thinking on the purposes of scripture.

The bible isn’t about being a man; it is not a training manual for humanity.  It is a book about God; not only the author but also the protagonist.  The bible is God’s story not man’s story.  The bible was given to man so that he might gain understanding about God, any understanding gained about man is secondary.  The bible speaks the truth about God.

The bolded bits I have no quarrel with. God is the protagonist, and why not? He wrote the blessed thing, and He wrote all the characters in it. But the unbolded statements pay short shrift to the mysteries linked there in the previous sentence. We should not underestimate that God made the universe so that He could make man. After he made everything in the universe, He said, “It is good”. Then He made man, and He said, “It is not good that man is alone.”

God just made everything besides Himself that can be known, and He’s already concerned for this one little speck of a man, on a speck of a planet, in a speck of a solar system, in a speck of a galaxy, in a universe that didn’t exist six days ago. He is utterly concerned with us from before there was an us.

All of this was recorded and given to us. The creation bit was given to us in the Pentateuch–the Five Books of the Law. What law? Why does God need a law? He doesn’t. The Law was given to man, yes, to help us understand God. Then there are the Psalms. The Proverbs. The words given to prophets for our instruction and edification, that, yes, we might know God better. The two are not mutually exclusive.

Sometime later, the Thought of God said: this man still needs help. He needs so much help that he is helpless before a just God. So the Thought–the Word of God that spoke the universe into existence–became a man to stand in for us as the man we could not be. Then there were the epistles; letters from men of God, to men of God, that were written by God, for man’s instruction. The Bible literally has everything to say on what is means to be a man. Game writers make this same claim of Game; though the authorship is given to evolution and genetics; the god of biomechanics.

Who Uses the Tools on Whom?

One of the misconceptions that comes from considering Game as a set of tools is that these tools are wielded by the man for work upon a woman.

No.

They are not tools in this regard; like tips, or insights. Game is a set of tools that operate on the man. They are more like exercises than tips. The tool of approaching many women is not to play vagina powerball until he hits the numbers, but through rejection and experience to extend the man’s endurance of expectations, hone his ability to read his opponent’s body language, and think on his feet.

The Neg is about demonstrating the man’s higher value, not diminishing hers–he’s a man of the world–seen a lot, knows a lot, and is too aloof to judge too quickly.

Kino is about getting comfortable with pushing your physical desires on a woman; projecting his frame of sexual desire onto her; boxing out her inhibitions.

There are at least three fundamental problems with this.

1) Women are not our opponents. They weren’t made to be our enemies. They don’t want to be our enemies. They want to rule over us. They act very foolishly. They are unruly…but they don’t want to be our enemies.

2) The law of diminishing returns will kick in; his need for escalation will build. Now, if this results in marriage then good. But the more capable he becomes with Game, the more that marriage will seem like a sacrifice instead of a fulfillment. This is especially true in the age of Feminism, and a reduced crop of marriage-worthy women.

3) Love is the prescribed tool for working on women; especially for Christian women; more especially for our wives. The problem is many women don’t want to be loved–they want to admired unto worship. They want to be men. This is because they are foolish and unruly and want to rule us. This is what the Knowledge of Good and Evil does for the creature meant to serve. It should be an expected evil reaction when the servant is confronted with the evil in the figure given authority.

The Efficacy of Game

Let’s go back to the Set of Tools:

Fornication and adultery are two of the most potent exercises/tools of Game. They are the power tools; the chainsaw and the flamethrower of Game, and they run on overconfidence. The Bible speaks of a man cleaving to his wife; the axe bite of love. That is very slow going when he has a forest to clear, and Game means to clear forests. It has to: Feminism has created this very black forest, and nothing will teach a man the value of a chainsaw faster than gawping at acres of dead trees. Virtually every woman before him is nothing but lumber waiting to be cut, or brush to be burnt, in his exercises.  There seem to be too few women worthy to make wives, for to save his Oneitis efforts.

Those two tools will get the aspiring master of Game to such mastery faster than anything else. They’ll teach the man that one woman is very like the next, and how to mow through the forest efficiently, for his sake. This isn’t true, but it seems that way since he can’t learn anything else over the din and blaze.

What the wielder of the chainsaw of fornication and the flamethrower of adultery will often not realize until it’s too late is that it’s upon himself that those tools operate, just as the others. Sexual sins are repeatedly noted as sins against the man himself because he is making two errors.

1) He is redirecting his love away from a worthy target to himself–that is: giving himself his Oneitis; that is: masturbation; that is: homosexuality.
2) He is diminishing his capacity to love overall. Game confirms this.

Even recognizing this, Game encourages it, and in the end: There is no room in the man to love anyone but himself, yet he is hateful to himself. He’s tooled and cut and burned everything off that can appreciate himself or a woman; not to mention a wife. He has arrived at nirvana: There is no Poon.

“Well,” a man might say, “I simply won’t use those tools.”  Yes, he will, and he does.

I noted before: There is only one cool religion left, and it is the one that can rest easy beside Feminism, solipsism, and self-destruction (nothingness).

  3. This is a very good rebuttal. I know you won’t be surprised that I disagree. . .that’s half the fun right? I’m moving cross country next Friday so I don’t I will have the time for a worthy rebutt, however, let me take issue with one snippet.

    We should not underestimate that God made the universe so that He could make man.

    I disagree: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him. (KJV) All things were made for the glory of God.

    You’re theology here is too anthropological for my taste. I don’t fully disagree with it, but at the same time my gut reaction is that though true on a certain level it misses the larger perspective. God did these things for man; yes, but ultimately even what is for man is in fact for the glory of the one who made us.

    Once living settles down I’ll give you the full rebuttal as is deserved.

    Cheers.

  4. The benefit, in this case, is not mutually exclusive. It is to everyone’s benefit as we are moving within thirty minutes of both of our extended families for the first time in a decade. My daughter is young and I want her to know her grandparents.

    We’ll call it Home, assuming in heavenly bliss there is time for semantics. I hope so.
