Dear Caleb,
Could you please recommend any other author like Harry Browne or at least any other book like, 'How I found freedom in an Unfree World.'
No other book, I've ever read has lead to such a gigantic paradigm shift.

Also any manosphere bloggers you follow or like with similar rational thinking and dispassionate writing as yours?

Not really. The reason that book is so powerful is because there isn't anything else much like it (other than The Unchained Man). Some other authors are similar, like Robert Ringer and some of Gene Simmons' books, but none are "like" him.

I don't regularly follow any manosphere bloggers because I don't have the time to read that often. The three guys that come close would Richard Cooper, Rollo Tomassi, and Aaron Clarey, but all three of these guys have massive disagreements with me, and Rollo's writing style is extremely different from mine, almost the opposite. So same kind of thing; no one is "like" me but a few guys are in the zone.

Hi, FNG here... Do you have any additional advice for a man in his late thirties when encountering a Type 2 or 3 VYW who happens to still be in high school, but is above the age of consent in the area? (Yes, this is more than theoretical. I think I screwed the pooch with this recently in a situation like this.)

A) I don't recommend it if you live in the USA or Canada even though its legal. (In other countries its fine.)

B) If you're going to do it anyway, try to focus on girls who don't live with both parents and who are hardcore Type 2s.

C) I have a feeling you're not talking about girls, but One Particular Girl™, which is very bad and possibly oneitis. Read this:

A & B) Noted.

C) A situation that arose and may be moot. But, it'd like to have ideas in my head about handling it should it crop up again.

Caleb,after analyzing different religions i came to the conclusion that Christianity is more likely to be truth.
In the bible there is a verse Revelation 13:16-17: " And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand or in their foreheads, that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name.(666)"
Im an agnostic,but its very interesting that the elites appear to be against the teachings of the bible.
IN over a hundred popular Movies and Songs you can see the number 666,the pyramid,the one covered eye,the all seeing eye.
The bar code has the number 666 in it:)).
Why do you think the elites put this symbols that nobody talks about?Do you think the future will be orwellian and everyone will have an rfid chip in them?
bar code one covered eye in movies and songs

So much of Alpha 2.0 is about rationality, objectivity, and seeing the world for what it really is based on verifiable facts rather than hope or Societal Programming, and you're failing there. You need to take a good, long look at yourself in a mirror and ask yourself if you're really seeing the world through factual lenses or through emotional ones.

Caleb,
How do you think an Alpha 2.0 should react to a situation in which an ex and mother of his sons leaves and after 2 years of cool coparenting remarries an Alpha 1.0 that acts as if he were the father of the kids, and she is super happy about it?
Investment in the relationship ended quite outcome independent. But this new situation is confusing because:

-the moment SHE got a BF, she tried not to let me see my kids anymore, by just preventing it and through court, but she lost. I do get to see my kids 12 days and nights per month now, but for 6 months it was hard.
-why would someone want to parent kids that are not their own AND already have a present father?
-This guy is clearly an Alpha. He tried to enter my home with her to retrieve my kids. I politely told him to come back when the kids were not here if he had any issue, and escorted him out of the yard. It could have been a disaster.
-she encourages all the above
Thanks for your time

Ignore the entire thing, accept it emotionally, and continue to be a good father to your kids when your kids are with you.

-the moment SHE got a BF, she tried not to let me see my kids anymore, by just preventing it and through court, but she lost. I do get to see my kids 12 days and nights per month now, but for 6 months it was hard.
Irrelevant.

Irrelevant. You shouldn't care.

-This guy is clearly an Alpha. He tried to enter my home with her to retrieve my kids. I politely told him to come back when the kids were not here if he had any issue, and escorted him out of the yard. It could have been a disaster.
Irrelevant. (Unless he does it again which is unlikely; if he does, call the police.)

-she encourages all the above
You need to REALLY read this article, not once, but several times, and really get it in your gut. Here you go:

Hi Caleb,

I'm pretty short at around 5'5. I plan on getting shoes with a 2-3 inch heel. Will women notice this/treat it as a big deal when they see me barefoot?

I'm 5'65 so I know your pain. I use 1-inch insole lifts for every date, sometimes 2-inch if I meet up with girls that are around 5'5-5'7.

The short answer is: girls do notice, especially when you go for higher lifts like 2-3 inch ones. BUT it doesn't affect your chance to sleep with her, especially if you have good game.

Hi, Caleb! i'm 34 years old, from Russia (big city). I bought and red bundle of your books a year ago.
I'm married for 8 years now.
Last year i sentenced to my wife that i can't live monogamous.
I started dating girls. Had several sucesses. In the winter we traveled in Asia with my wife, i worked a lot.
And it was de facto monogamy for that time again.

So for now i try to get fb again (using Tinder). And my problems are:

Lots of girls expect to have relationships right from the begining.
They know that many guys want to meet only for sex, they know modern tendencies in nonmonogamous relationships, but don't want it.
So they usually try to clear up my targets right on the first date.
I know that mono relationship is the road that ends in several years and thats it but they clearly want that road.
So if i keep quiet - that feels like hiding/lying to them since i have different targets.

The other thing - they dont expect me to be in relationships/married.
If i tell that i'm married - it's about 80% chance they will end the date immediately i think.

So maby i should try to find the type of girls on Tinder which want to meet only for sex?
Or at least to sort out the girls which precisely dont wanna have sex without serious relationships?

Haha, women in a nutshell.

Don't keep quiet. That's lying and against my advice.

The other thing - they dont expect me to be in relationships/married.

1. Target women under the age of 23 as much as you possibly can. These are the ones who will care the least about you being married.

2. Don't tell them right off the bat. Meet up with them first and break it to them (very gently) on the first (or second, but ideally the first) meet. Then immediately change the subject and don't get into a big discussion about it.

3. Put in lots and lots of numbers.

4. Consider sugar daddy game if (and only if!) you can afford it. Those women don't care at all that you're married. Many even prefer it.

That's all the questions I'll answer in this thread for now, folks! I'll continue to poke around this forum from time to time.
