The End Of Roosh Hour

I stopped listening to your Roosh Hour months and months ago. I found them way too negative and black-pilled. They would put me into a really bad mood after listening to them, and I would take out that anger on my loved ones. I'm glad that you are deciding to end them. They were a vestige of your secular life, and are no longer needed.

I don't think you should permanently give up the spoken medium, though. You could do audiobooks, or pre-recorded podcasts or videos on different religious topics. I think the 5-10 minute podcast format would suit you well.
Welcome to the real world Pius.
 
Roosh if you were married with children you would probably continue the podcasts. As a single man, your choice to discontinue the podcasts is the right path.

I really enjoyed the interviews(EMJ, Jay Dyer, Milos, Brother Augustine etc) and phone calls, but yeah the news coverage was pretty depressing and blackpilling.
 
I don't think it was pride, but something akin to righteous indignation that you where feeling? I also think that the saints of old lived in a different world, and their ways where different as a result of that. If your gift is fighting evil with irony etc, then it's better to use that gift than not!

In a decision that has taken me months to make, I have chosen to retire the Roosh Hour live stream format. The first Roosh Hour was recorded on July 10, 2017 while the last, Roosh Hour 73, on January 22, 2022. I will not do them anymore.

It was quaint to think that, upon repentance, I could seamlessly incorporate Christ into all my existing activities, but some activities are so predominately secular that they must be abandoned entirely. That includes doing a live stream where I offer commentary on dozens of news stories to a wide audience where my opinions are the “hidden knowledge” or “hot takes” that edify the masses. Problem is that doing live streams so exercised my pride that my most lamentable sins since being received into the Orthodox Church happened immediately after streaming.

Doing a Roosh Hour had the effect of dumping a gallon of adrenaline into my body. It gave me such a chemical rush that I immediately began to perform old sins, first with my mind and then my tongue. It even caused me to overeat. I learned that the adrenaline evaporates my spiritual guard, similar to the effect of alcohol. Not only do I lose control over my willpower, but I also lose the desire to pray. For at least a day after streaming, my prayer is unfruitful, full of distractions. It began to bother my conscience to do live streams because I knew I’d experience temporary spiritual damage as a result.



I have considered pre-recording streams to reduce the stimulation that comes from speaking to hundreds of people at once, or even to do an audio-only Roosh Hour to reduce the effect of me being the “star” of the show, but the problem of the content remains. For three, four, even five hours, most of what I talk about is the news, usually bad news. This observation was confirmed to me while I was preparing for my next stream by doing an objective analysis of the links I wanted to share. They were almost entirely negative: war in this country, rumors of war elsewhere, the regime trampling on people (literally with police horses), women behaving badly, children being hurt, people killing themselves, discussion of the human-destroying plans of the globalists, potential future pandemics, and on and on. I don’t care how strong your faith is, but to be subjected to this barrage of pain, suffering, and evil will darken your mind. For a long time I have been subjecting your senses to hours of doom and gloom, making it easier for you to experience anxiety, fear, and despair. Many people think I’m doing them a favor by showing them “what’s going on,” but do the benefits really outweigh the costs? Outside of knowing the basic framework of what’s happening in the world, you don’t need to know everything to serve Christ and be saved.

I have shared many spiritual ideas and quotes in my streams, but they are a minority of the content, and after a stream, it’s easier to remember the shocking images or carnage I shared more easily than a nugget of spiritual wisdom from this saint or that. I have never encountered a saint who spoke or wrote endlessly about world events and politics to then say a word or two about the faith, or who had to rush out in the public square to shout his political opinions to all who would listen. In the end, my streams were just one step above Fox News.



I’m not leaving you in the lurch. In my article Forecast Of The End Of The World, I carefully lay out how the world operates and what I believe will happen in the future. As of now, many news stories you encounter will fit into that framework. To continually discuss coronavirus week after week, for example, or gawk at a new war that we can view from the comfort of our homes, is gratuitous and merely a form of entertainment. You already have all that you need to know on an intellectual level about how the Antichrist will deceive the world, and now you simply need to strengthen your faith. Also, Roosh V Forum is active with hundreds of posts each day concerning every topic under the sun, including current events. Many astute men (and women) post there and can help you connect the dots of what is happening in the world.

It’s possible that in many months I will decide to do something like a topical podcast, but I prefer writing because I can perfect it through the editing process and remove inflamed quips and mistakes in judgment that I simply can’t do when speaking from an outline. God has shown me that for a passionate and impulsive person like myself who is prone to going too far in the moment, speaking in front of an audience is far more dangerous than writing, a methodical activity that does not dump any adrenaline within me.

Repentance is hard. Everything you were doing up to that point must be carefully examined with a spiritual lens. I had unpublished all my pickup books and articles, thinking that’s all I needed to do, but that was just the beginning, as I am in the process of changing countless other personal behaviors and habits to align myself with the teachings of Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. I must put God above my worldly pursuits, and if God tells me to give up everything then I must give up everything. Until then, I will commit to writing articles here and operating Roosh V Forum. For those of you who enjoyed my streams, I hope you stick around, because I think I have more to contribute without darkening your mind by showcasing all of Satan’s modern handiwork.

There were many negative news in your streams, but there were also some personal stories, good citations, pearls that were very much valuable.

You could at least consider to do:
1. Call-ins
2. Share some pre-recorded video (short 10 minutes) about
2.a) some personal stories that could teach us something valuable,
2.b) or citations, or Christian topics, bible passages, (I think you would have a great audience), some prayers
2.c) Teaching some skills, maybe not in the most details, to keep videos short, but to give an overview, for example how to cook something,
how to recognize products with zog, how to avoid harmful habits.
3. Interviews where you interview (or you're the interviewed), but it would also be interesting that you do interview others.
4. Commentary on your articles, adding more insight than what is written.
5. Sharing in general valuable knowledge

All these, and many other ideas, could be good, because avoid the black-pilling, and for you to sin, while giving much value to others. I am sure you would have a very large audience from the Roosh Hour, and you could attract even more people to know about Christianity, if you share often some videos.
 
Whenever Roosh went live for the month I knew it was time to put on my coat and step out for a walk. I would just walk around my city and listen to the podcast for the whole show, sometimes up to 5 hours. I would go around and visit different shops and get snacks as I went. A lot of fun and definitely good for my spiritual health. The only reason I started going to my Orthodox church was because Roosh literally said, "If you don't go to church but you believe in the faith, figure it out and start going". Good memories :)

Guys to give an honest response to these comments, I'd like to say that reality is depressing, very depressing. Whether you let yourself getting blackpilled by it is your own choice and if you choose to do so, it's your inadequacy as a man. Walking away from reality will crush you down the line, so yeah it's uncomfortable to see reality entirely for what it is, like Neo when he was unplugged from the Matrix and realized he was living in a monstrous, dystopic, robot pod while he thought he lived in a comfortable normal world, but when you're genuinely pursuing truth there's no other way around it. If reality upsets you, good, that means you have some clay to work with and knead it into a stronger, better, more capable version of yourself. If I speak personally all this stuff facing reality as it is with all its heinous and monstrous aspects has been depressing for me but I always ploughed through and I'm very happy and grateful that I made it out at the other side, because the truth will set you free.

I think it's important for everyone to see reality for what it is, and seeing the sad state of the world is what helped me understand the faith more deeply and avoid many of the traps.
However there seems to be a point where I'm not gaining anything but instead I'm just getting frustrated at the newest travesty.
 
I enjoyed the Roosh Hours, right from the first one up until the last one. It was good to see the changes and developments across the years.

The legendary (((tractor memes))) will live on! Onwards and upwards. All the best Roosh.

I didn't say anything about running away from reality, I just don't have the need to constantly feed myself with this type of content. Look man I live in the Third World, I can turn on the national TV news and watch all kinds of tragedy you can imagine, but what good will that do for my life?

And like I said before, the interviews Roosh did are great and serve to bring out good wholesome information.
 
Makes sense, completely understand.....

"If thy eye scandalize thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee having one eye to enter into life, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire."
Matt 18:9

Thank you for everything
 
Roosh this hurts, deep. Although I understand why you are doing it. Needless to say truly and genuinely is one thing I truly looked forward to listening your live streams. I feel like i lost a loved one and mourning. The end of an era. May God bless you brother Roosh. You gave me laughter, you will be missed.

Exactly I'd say this is the right approach, at some point I got tired as well of the whole corona stuff for example or the trannies again. But indeed seeing that state is necessary to understand the world we're in and allows you to take the last step towards the spiritual.

I remember I watched AJ at some time, which was great to ''wake me up'', but indeed if you stay into that you don't progress at some point, so you've got to look for more depth and especially the spiritual. The point was not so much against you personally, more a general point where I sometimes see men who get into a negative spiral because they learn about the truth and when that is the case, it's very important to do a self check in my opinion, because the outside world shouldn't determine your inner world.
 
I liked Roosh Hour I'd guess in 2018-2020 when it was more a matter of Roosh pulling together strange signals in society to show the rot that was underneath. At the time I wasn't as plugged into the conspiracies, or even the media to read these tea leaves and I appreciated them being pulled together to some extent.

Today it is all out in the open, and many people have telegram, the forum, and are already getting this information. So in this way, recapping the subverted news which is now fully mainstream and available in full sight to all isn't so needed.

The idea of a topical podcast is a good idea. In this way a specific take, or opinion on a single topic could be explored, without the extended negativity. It could be prepared in a way that shows the negative, and then perhaps the positive action needed to counter that. With time and prep it would be easy to prepare something in a balanced way and not black pill. Writing accomplishes this same thing, the only difference is many people listen while they drive or work. Myself I listen while I work from home.

All in all everyone should do what is best for their relationship with God. Often we give something up and then we are able to reintegrate it back into our lives, or we realize we are just happier without it. Time will tell.
