The Scorpion, being a poor swimmer, asked the Frog to carry him across the river.
“I’m not stupid!” remarked the Frog. “You’ll sting me and I’ll drown.”
“Of course not,” the Scorpion replied. “If I sting you, I’ll drown also. Where’s the logic in that?”
“Well, I guess you’re right,” the Frog said. “Hop on then.”
Halfway across the river, the Scorpion gave the Frog a mighty sting on its back. And as they both sank into the river, the Frog woefully asked the Scorpion:
“You said there’d be no logic if you’d stung me. And yet you did it. Why?”
The Scorpion said, “Nothing to do with logic. It’s just my character.”
The moral of the story is simple: some creatures are just what they are.
No matter how kindly they are treated… their instincts will make them harm even those who have been generous and loving to them.
And you know what… it depresses me somewhat to say this, and yet it’s true: humans are exactly like that.
We are all born manipulators. It’s just our character. Being manipulative is just what we are.
There are no exceptions: young, old, men, women. Your neighbor, family doctor, barber, random people you meet on the street, rabbi, the President of the United States. Every single one of them is a manipulator.
Why? Simple, really – it’s because manipulation is the core of our survival as humans, and by extension, our continued existence.
We manipulate our surroundings, the people around us and our life situations so that we survive and thrive.
And for this reason, we will always remain true to our innate nature, for better or worse.
Recognizing your true nature as a manipulator is the most important step you’ll need to take if you want to dominate and control women.
After all, stripped down to its bare basics, seduction is essentially manipulation.
Whenever you try to alter a woman’s thoughts and behavior, you are manipulating her.
If you’re one of those who deny their own instinctive nature, and you believe that women will love you for being honest and forthright… then you’re welcome to continue living in your fantasy la-la land.
Or, on the other hand, if you’re courageous (and enlightened) enough to embrace your true nature as a manipulator, and you want to know how to cleverly use manipulation to control, dominate and seduce women, then join us and be a Shogun.
I don’t promise you happiness, only the truth.
