Roosh has a new book out. It is not Bang Religion or anything to do with pick up. It is an engaging read about his turn away from the old hedonistic life, and his initial attempt to walk a path with Jesus. It is a fun read I recommend.
There are two major narratives in the book. One is a man discovering his faith. This is the obvious one via Roosh’s public posting. The other is a man discovering his home country. Roosh never visited the rest of America, choosing to dive into foreign travel for over a decade. He discovers the cultural bits he had denied himself as well as the natural beauty of this nation that he never bothered to check out.
The religious bits are a little funny at times because he is new to it. He still uses his casual language and is self-deprecating or critical at times. He learns much about faith as he visits more churches. I personally chuckled at the contrasts of church services between parishes across America. No matter the faith, there is no monolithic church.
The national narrative makes this worth a purchase even if you don’t care for the religious transformation. He has always been a great observer of culture, and the state of America is revealed here. The cities are monoculture holes of dysfunction. Regional flavor will be found outside the metros in specific regions. Our library system is really homeless daytime management. The rainbow flag is everywhere so if you don’t have them in your town, you’re winning in life.
There is another thread. Along the trip, Roosh meets or stays with men and shares the talks they had. If you piece the subject matter together, there is a cabal of sorts that seems to operate and control different realms of business and society that uses vices to corrupt anyone seeking advancement. It’s there for you to see if you put it together. I can’t imagine who makes up that cabal.
I was lucky to meet up with Roosh during this trip and just after in DC. Despite the short time between being in the middle of his trip and ending it, he seemed a changed man. He mentions addiction at some point in the book, and he sounded like an addict angry at himself when we met mid-trip. After the trip, he sounded like a man who had processed that anger, recognized it was behind him, and was ready for the next step in life. We’ve met a couple times since, and he is strongly taking those next steps.

Managing the left – The media chides the dirtbag left for even being friendly to the far right. God forbid a 5Star/Lega alliance happen here.
