Musk tweeted:
“The far left hates everyone, themselves included!”

Now where did you first hear the meme “The left hates everyone, themselves included”?

And now everyone is saying it.

And people who are repeating Musk are also talking about a far left minority moving into everything and taking over, exercising terrifying power wildly disproportionate to their actual support. They are saying “paper tiger”.

What happened to the Canadian trucker protesters and the Jan 6 protesters, however, demonstrates that this minority can only be removed by organized violence, and those saying “paper tiger” are still, for the most part, suffering normality bias. But if one meme penetrates, the next will eventually penetrate also.

Predictions

Sunday, February 27th, 2022

> > While Namefag Yarvin’s predictions have been fairly good.”

> You’re exactly right. That’s why I’ve stopped paying attention to most of the comments here.

My prediction has always been total war, mass murder on a very large scale, or total collapse around 2026 or so.

Events remain on track for that prediction.

I have been predicting it for twenty years or so, and on this blog, for at least ten years.

We still have “everyone must get vaxxed endlessly” enforcement in most places, despite increasing indication of cumulative damage.

We still have a solid diet of weak men and strong women in the media.

The courtship dance may not be realistically depicted.

We have rapidly increasing hordes of enemies being flown in.

The flooding of America with enemies has escalated. We are seeing some hesitancy in vaxing everyone to death, but the vax enforcement is still at levels likely to kill most normies if vaxing has significant cumulative effect, and it rather looks as if it does have significant cumulative effect.

Money printing continues to escalate.

The general trend to greater and greater abnormality at shorter and shorter intervals is still in place. Yarvin’s prediction was that it would slow down, or somewhat stabilize. This has not happened.

2012/07/14:

The long predicted crisis has arrived. The question is does the current order collapse around 2026 or so, when we have some technological and cultural capability remaining, or do we, like post Roman Britain and today’s North Korea, go all the way back to the stone age around 2080 or so, with only a handful of the rich elite possessing metal artifacts, while the masses scratch at the ground with digging sticks?

2012/11/05

I say collapse or civil war II in 2026. He is saying 2022.

If it is 2022, I will surely say I was right, and if it is 2026, he will surely say he was right.

Well it is now 2022, and things are happening a whole lot faster than they were ten years ago.

2018/04/11

As we approach the left singularity, infinite leftism in finite time, it becomes increasingly hard to make predictions.

I think things blow up around 2026. I also think elections will have ceased to matter some time before 2026.

There will be increasingly dramatic events next week, next month, and next year. The new abnormal will soon become even more abnormal.

Am I a good prophet, or a damned good prophet?

2019/04/29

I suspect that elections may well become transparently irrelevant by late 2020.

But if elections still matter in 2020, the Left’s response will likely render elections irrelevant not very long thereafter.

I still estimate the left singularity for 2026, but as we approach 2026, expect the unexpected.

Well am I damned good prophet? Give me an answer?. Did Moldbug predict what has happened, and what is continuing to happen? I did.

2020/12/17

If Biden gets in, then the people pulling his strings will find that the way they got in makes it impossible to get anything done. Until they start shooting judges and public servants, which I expect to start happening around 2026 or so if Trump fails to start shooting people sooner than that.

It is not that moderation and sanity is prevailing, it is that incapacity is prevailing.

2021/08/01

I continue to predict very large scale violence in 2026 or so, as I have been predicting for decades, but I was thinking that with Trump out of the way we would continue to see escalation in the violence as left wing factions turned up the heat on each other- and in some respects we have seen more violence, for example the Churches burning, but the coalition is holding quite well. The left factions are not turning up the heat on each other. I was expecting some more Epsteins by now.

I conjecture that we are still in the phase of coalition building preparatory for serious power struggle. Which could continue for quite a while. The plan, or a plan of several mutually incompatible plans, is to eliminate the Republicans in the mid terms, and, Republicans eliminated, then go for each other.

You heard it here first. As you heard that democracy was shortly going to abandoned here first. Prediction: Republicans eliminated in November, perhaps merely quietly pushed out of power, perhaps physically annihilated. Most likely quietly pushed out of power, while arrangements are quietly made for later physical annihilation. Then the left turns on each other, with the trend to ever more left wing insanity that has been in place since 1820 in England, and somewhat earlier in America, broken in infinite leftism and infinite insanity

We shall see.

Merry Christmas

A merry Christmas to all, and peace on earth to all men of goodwill.

What our enemies revealed in the fall of Kabul

Saturday, September 4th, 2021

Newt Gingrich: “Sad not a single women’s group on the left is up in arms about Afghanistan.”

Of course not. Feminism and female emancipation is merely a shit test, and women love men who pass their shit tests, and hate men who fail them.

Reflect on the savage hatred that feminists bear against Greek letter fraternities and rich and famous movie producers who fail to rape them, with their eager and enthusiastic response to Rotherham and the Cologne rape festival: “Refugees welcome.” “We are not your women.”

If you read between the lines of the Rotherham stories, it is seems that the very young girls being raped and threatened were strangely difficult to help and protect when family members tried to help and protect them.

As the collapse began, but before the Officially Unofficial Press acknowledged that Kabul had fallen, I saw talking heads displaying awareness that this was a holy war, and awareness that you have to bring a gun to a gunfight and a faith to a holy war.

The people of Afghanistan, we were repeatedly told, loved Globohomo, democracy, and feminism, and would fight for it.

Events proved that the Afghan army would not fight for Globohomo.

They brought a faith to a holy war, but it was revealed that Satanic faiths are not very useful in holy wars.

Lethality of vaccination

Monday, August 30th, 2021

When driving, I got tired of the CD, and turned on the radio, to hear the voice of authority calling on the public to report doctors who doubt the vax, or who prescribe safe and effective drugs for Covid, to the medical malpractice board.

This sort of thing makes it difficult to get data.  When you search the internet, nothing comes up except a storm of absurd and outrageous official lies, but I ran into the following posted on Gab.

Total US army deaths from covid itself, over the entire time it has been around, about twenty.

US army deaths and sequelae of vaccination that are likely to be lethal per day, about fifty.

This is roughly what I was expecting from anecdotal data.

The parable of the Wicked Vinedressers

Sunday, August 8th, 2021

Don’t worry. This not going to turn into a Christian blog. The Dark Enlightenment is about material and effective causation and falsifiable truths.

But the Dark Enlightenment is also about religion, largely because we are trapped in a holiness spiral, and a holiness spiral that is increasingly becoming demon worship.

The parable of the Wicked Vinedressers tells us that “Judeo-Christianity” is a hostile Jewish entryist movement against Christianity, just a Socinianism was a hostile nontrinitarian entryist movement against Christianity.

Foreseeing his crucifixion, Jesus told us that God was going to become so pissed with the Jews that he was going to ditch them, and adopt someone else. The Christian Church is the new Israel. For this reason the parable tends to get stuffed behind the water heater in the basement along with Saint Paul on marriage and on the recruitment of Bishops. (The new bibles that translate Paul from the Greek as using some word other than “Bishop” are lying. His words on the priesthood have long been an embarrassment to the Church, and now some Churches have taken to just flat out lying about them.)

Who is the new Israel is way off topic. Not a fit topic for a Dark Enlightenment blog. Entryism, however, is right on topic.

As with all parables, the narrator, or in this case the narrator followed by Jesus himself, nudges us in the ribs and explains what the parable is all about, and Jesus then segues the parable into prophesy. That Israel will be destroyed and its people replaced. Which prophesy came to pass a generation later.

OK. So no such thing as Judeo-Christianity. Replacement theology, supersessionism, comes right from the horses mouth. The Christian Church has replaced Israel in God’s plan. Supersessionism is official, and any Church stuffing it into basement behind the water heater along with the rest of all the embarrassments is heretical.

Gnon, of course, works through material and effective causation. And while the final cause of the expulsion may well have been Divine Wrath, the material and effective cause was –

wait for it.

wait for it.

– Following the letter of the law at the expense of the spirit of the commandments.

A mob of Jews coveted someone else’s land and took it, and then when the Romans came around to sort out the disturbance, killed a centurion, or as I prefer to say it, killed a cop.

Well, the Romans had plenty more centurions, and ordinarily the matter would not have led to much, but in this case one thing led to another, and eventually to the prophesied fall of Jerusalem and the prophesied destruction of the Temple (there is a pile of prophesy about this event, which I am unlikely to cover) and the reason things got so totally out of hand was that the Jews were so self righteous about the matter.

And the reasoning behind their extreme holiness was that it is more important to strictly observe the law on contamination by blood, even if it is merely chicken blood, than the commandments on coveting, theft, and murder. You see, they took that land for extremely holy reasons. It seems that getting a cop’s blood on you is less important than walking on land that might be contaminated with chicken blood and they took that land because it was very close to the narrow access path to the synagogue, and they needed to prevent it from being contaminated by chicken blood.

There are a lot of prophecies relating to the expulsion, but this is not going to become a Christian blog, so I will skip the rest of them, even though some of them relate to material and effective causation. Religion is on topic when it impacts material and effective causation, as it frequently does.

And material and effective causation should impact religion. Hence, the Dark Enlightenment faith of Gnon.

Fixed privacy leak in avatars

Friday, February 26th, 2021

Following the wise advice of Prince Charming, I edited a custom personal 256 bit secret into the php code of Avatar Privacy avatar generator, so that now it actually works as it is supposed to.

So now we have avatars, and actually do have privacy.

My own personal experience in security is that your boss orders one to do something inexplicably stupid that introduces a subtle flaw, an order that one would not expect your boss to give, or even to understand, but the flaw does not flat out report everything directly to the NSA, and the flaw is arguable – one is not flat out breaking security, it is just subtly weak, in a way complicated to explain and not entirely trivial to exploit.

And when you try to explain the problem to him he does not want to listen, and is unable to understand.

I conjecture that this is what happened to the Avatar Privacy plugin.

The flaw, explained by Prince Charming and checked by me is that the salt does not salt – it is same salt for every user, and the salt is quite short, thirty two bits, and thus can be easily reversed by exhaustive search. Given one known email, one can reverse the salt. Given the salt, one can reverse the hash of the any email. You have to throw the entire population of potential email addresses, which may well be enormous, at the hash of the email, but this does not take that long.

The central authority has a list of everyone they could do harm to, and try the list against the hash of the emails of the blog commenters who have offended by displaying inadequate holiness.

I could have fixed the salt part, and perhaps I will, but instead used a 256 bit site wide secret prepended to every hash directly in the source code.

return \hash( 'sha256', "my custom secret"."{$this->get_salt()}{$identifer}" );

This results in everyone randomly getting a new avatar, which will likely be different from the old one.

Back again

Tuesday, February 16th, 2021

My blog has been down for a while – the perils of being your own system administrator.

Because of political events, I have moved the blog onto a server physically located on the boundary between the US empire and the Chinese hegemony, in a country that piously proclaims fealty to both, and tends to be left alone by both.

(Which means we are now being spied on by twice as many people, but they will probably forget about shutting me down and all that.)

While I can blame lots of other people for lots of things that went wrong in the move, the chief errors were my own.

I am back

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2020

If you have problems viewing this site or commenting, clear your browser caches (except for passwords and such)

Some browsers cached messed up data during the transition.

I am feeling optimistic about my safety, because I have taken some additional precautions, and the move seems to have taken me off the radar. About America, not so much.

After the Republic died in Rome, it took a long time for a new political order capable of cohesive action to appear, and even after Caesar Augustus took power, it took him twelve years to get things in some sort of order.

Elections and due process have gone down, and most of the civil service is in similar shape.

Sulla restored the Republic the only way it could be restored, at swordpoint with considerable slaughter.

The restoration lasted twenty one years, then the Republic died again of the same causes.

But for fourteen years after it died, until shortly after the assassination of Caesar, everyone acted as if the dead Republic was still alive, as if due process and free elections were still in effect.

Frequently with fatal consequences.

The politically correct story of the Roman Republic is that it died of ambitious generals with troops personally loyal to their general.

This just is not true. There was a terrible vacuum that demanded a general to restore order at swordpoint and enforce at swordpoint the cooperation that makes collective action possible, and that vacuum twice persisted for an extraordinarily unreasonable time before a general finally did. The Republic died twice, but things superficially appeared to keep happening as they used to for a while because of old people with old habits acting in ways that used to make sense, but were no longer sane or safe in the new reality.

Because the CEO, the sovereign, cannot be everywhere at once and decide everything he constructs a process that will generally produce an acceptable result if everyone follows it.

But, not everyone is going to follow it.

There is an interesting mathematical theorem from computer science that it takes at most one third of the parties engaging in Byzantine defection to subvert any process. It does not take majority defection, and unless the process is robustly designed to resist Byzantine faults, like the processes of the Venetian Republic in the days of its greatness, which requires immense amount of bullshit and heavy overheads, it takes far less than a third defecting.

The reason is that the people defecting from the process necessarily have a considerable advantage in getting their way over people who do not defect, an advantage that can be mathematically proven is always at least two to one, and is usually far more than two to one. Getting it down to two to one requires smart people designing the process.

A process that can resist one third Byzantine faults always has enormous overheads compared to a process that assumes no Byzantine faults.

If Trump’s people play by the rules, and other people do not play by the rules which is what has been happening, Trump’s people are going to get screwed.

So, by and by, everyone stops playing by the rules, as in the recent exposes of NSA misconduct, as in the recent election, as in the recent court decisions, and too many other instances to count.

But if everyone stops playing by the rules, then collective action becomes difficult. As the Russians complained of America under Obama, “America is not agreement capable.” Notoriously the State Department is owned by Israel. And by Saudi Arabia. And by China. And by assorted Hunter Biden type grifters. All the mutually contradictory conspiracy theories are simultaneously true.

Now in a private company, when you detect Byzantine faults you suspect Byzantine defection, and fire people till it goes away.

Obviously this does not happen in the public service. So the public service tends to become corrupt and incapable of collective action, incapable of serving its purpose.

If Biden gets in, then the people pulling his strings will find that the way they got in makes it impossible to get anything done. Until they start shooting judges and public servants, which I expect to start happening around 2026 or so if Trump fails to start shooting people sooner than that.

In the Roman Republic, the processes stopped working. Caesar incorrectly assumed that it was still impossible for respectable people to publicly murder other respectable people in public. And his assassins incorrectly assumed that after they assassinated Caesar, it would once again become impossible. He was wrong.

And they were wrong. Interesting times ahead.

This blog is going down

Wednesday, December 16th, 2020

This blog, and the associated email addresses are going away until it becomes apparent which way the wind blows.

I am going to sell the domain name.

When it becomes apparent which way the wind blows, a similar blog, with all the original content and comments, will re-open on a less valuable domain name in a safer administration.

Bets on the outcome of current events should be settled in 2020 january 21 with ushwx@protonmail.ch
gpg fingerprint: 0D6ABF58AA31AF9594E70E4673E4BC62E92B87D7

The blog will go into maintenance mode in due course. If things go well, it should start redirecting to a domain with a cheaper domain name on which the blog is no longer in maintenance mode. If things go badly, I am pursuing a course of action based on blockchains and cryptography, while waiting for a Sulla, a Cromwell, or a Stalin. If a Cromwell or a Stalin, I will prepare the way for a General Monck or a Putin.

Whether this domain name will start redirecting to a new domain name depends on my judgment of events. A new blog with all the original content will probably open somewhere, but you may have to discover it.
