I’ve heard a lot of people make claims that the pick up community could have helped George Sodini and ultimately have prevented the catastrophe that happened yesterday…
I find such claims completely baseless and pointless after the fact such as this…
First, I want to say that it is evident that George Sodini WAS aware of the “pick up women” self-help sector.
If you are not familiar with R. Don Steele, he was one of the early players in the “pick up women” niche. In the early to mid-90s it was basically him and Ross Jeffries
Then Ross started getting more press, Steele got jealous and talked shit and then Ross sued Steele in 2000.
So basically George knew there were guys with his similar problems with women and there were people out there dedicated to helping people like him…
I’m VERY positive about the seduction community, hence this blog… BUT George Sodini had BIGGER problems!
When I had issues with women, I shared some of his negative views. I was frustrated. I blamed others for my problems, including my family and friends. I was even a bit misogynistic.
BUT… I drank Jack Daniels in order to build up the courage to approach and talk to women… NOT to build up the courage to shoot innocent people and commit suicide!
The seduction community can help you see what you are doing wrong. It can help you understand women and what they are going through. It can help you stop blaming others for your failure and start FIXING yourself. In the process, you start to admire and respect women.
But it CAN’T help you fix SERIOUSLY devious and dangerous thoughts. You MUST seek the help of a trained, certified psychiatric therapist in such a case…
I have a lot of faith in the topic of this blog, but I obviously believe George’s problems far exceeded anything covered here..
The pick up artist community is not a magic bullet that can cure every man’s problems. It DOES address a specific niche problem men have that tends to be vastly neglected by society and swept under the rug.
I would go to a guy who wears a fuzzy hat and who is good with women to learn how to become good with women myself. I would NOT go to a guy who wears a fuzzy hat who attempted suicide himself if I was thinking about killing people and committing suicide. You need to get your BIGGER problems straightened out first before you can straighten out your issues with women!
If there’s anything positive that can come out of such a terrible event, I hope it shines light on the problems men have with women. Maybe psychiatrists and doctors will learn more about the severity and learn how to treat it better and prevent serious cases of it from blowing up into the event that happened yesterday.
I also hope that the mass media will become more understanding of guys who are trying to improve themselves with women and those trying to help them…
…but just as sad as the event itself, I think it will go down as a NEGATIVE strike against the pickup community!
