I tossed my copy of Esquire magazine across my living room, “What happened to this magazine? It’s all feminist trash.” Esquire, like all men’s magazines, had become thoroughly feminized.
Rather than complain the comments section or write an angry letter to the editor, I created the top men’s interest website in the world.
When you want something, create it.
“How do I make money online, Mike?” I delete those emails, as I explained how to make money in Gorilla Mindset. Do not waste my time.
- Step 1. Ask yourself, “What do I want to see in the world?”
- Step 2. Create it.
You are not special. I am not special. We all want the same stuff.
I like millions of other men used to read GQ, Esquire, Men’s Health, and Men’s Fitness. Those magazines are all trash now.
If I want a website like Danger & Play, so too do millions of others.
Thus I created it.
There was no book like Gorilla Mindset out there. People told me it was a mistake to write a “self-help” book targeted directly towards me.
“If I want a book like Gorilla Mindset, so do others.” Gorilla Mindset was a hugely successful book launch and continues to sell well.
What do you want?
Go create it.
I want to see a documentary on free speech in the West.
We have all been silenced. We know the feeling of censoring ourselves lest we offend some delicate flower or incite a violent hate mob.
I have had the police called on me for my Tweets. People have reported me to the California State Bar. They have tried to silence me, but they can’t and won’t.
Well why isn’t there a documentary about free speech?
I want to see it. If I want to see it, millions of others do, too.
Thus I was talking to Loren Feldman, an absolute maniac who has become a good friend of mine.
Let’s make a movie, I told him.
Loren directed American Milo in addition to some other artsy films and has the talent for film that few have.
Loren is also obsessive about his art and works the kind of long hours I work on my writing.
We started pre-production on Silenced.
I wasn’t going to do a Kickstarter at first, as I don’t like reaching into your pockets.
As we talked, however, I learned that you can’t “self-publish” a film onto Netflix and Amazon. You must go through a distribution company.
How can you get your film distributed? You must show a distribution company that people want to see the film.
How can you prove that there’s a strong demand for a film? You launch a successful Kickstarter.
The Why and the How of Life.
“When you have a why,” Nietzsche said, “you will find the how.”
How do you make a great film? How do you launch a Kickstarter? How you distribute a film?
I figured that out because I had a why.
My why for Silenced is that censorship is destroying the West. If you cannot speak openly about political issues, society collapses.
Because I had a why for Silenced, the how is….stuff you figure out.
If you can’t figure out how to do something, then you don’t have your why yet.
Find your why and the how will fall into place.
Thank you for backing Silenced.
Any amount helps. Yes, Silenced is going to cost me a lot of money to produce. A bigger contribution is better than a smaller one.
However the distribution companies will also look at the total number of backers.
I’m not anyone in Hollywood, and if I can show them over 500 people back Silenced, it will hard to ignore us.
The more backers the better.
Thank you for supporting Silenced. This is a film that will change the culture, and more importantly, it’s a project you will feel proud of being part of.
