The trans cult

First they overlook evil, then they permit evil, then they legalize evil, then they promote evil, then they celebrate evil, then they persecute anyone who still calls it evil.

You pretended they were your equal, only to be promptly informed that they were your superior, which superiority is backed by the fist of the state and the officially unofficial state religion shouted at you from every rooftop.

We feel helpless, we have no authority to call evil evil when the state calls it good. But you do have that authority. Even though my faith is less than a mustard seed, demons still flee before Christ. In my personal life, invoking God and Bible is startlingly and surprisingly effective. Works. Possibly it works because Christ has real power, and possibly our state religion has real demons. Possibly it works because progressives are eternally uncertain that they have the support of their tribe, while they they feel if someone is referencing the bible and God, he does have the support of his tribe. Possibly it works because we have been Christian for seventeen centuries, and it takes a while for the coals to go out. They see God behind me.

It feels very much as if Christ has real power, and whether the demons of the state religion are real or not, demon worship is real.

Hear is a report from girl was caught in the trans cult as a naive teenager, as so many are caught today, but escaped. Hat tip ExileStyle

Its understandable that any young person exposed to this kind of belief system would grow to deeply resent being white, “cis”, straight, or (biologically) male. The beauty of gender ideology is it provides a way to game this system, so that you can get some of those targets off your back and enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded youths. You can’t change your race, pretending to have a different sexuality would be very uncomfortable in practice, but you can absolutely change your gender, and it’s as easy as putting a “she/they” in your bio. Instantly you are transformed from an oppressing, entitled, evil, bigoted, selfish, disgusting cishet white scum into a valid trans person who deserves celebration and special coddling to make up for the marginalization and oppression you supposedly now face. Now not expected to do as much groveling and reaffirming to everyone how much you love checking your privilege, you can relax a little and talk about your life without wondering if you are distracting from the struggles of or speaking over marginalized groups, because you are marginalized too. With the new pronouns often comes a wave of positive affirmation from friends and followers, and the subconscious picks up quickly that there’s a way to make the deal of being on Tumblr even sweeter.

This is the incentive I felt to comb through my thoughts and memories for things that might be further evidence that deep down, I wasn’t really a girl. I hated my body; it must be because I don’t like that its female. Boys have never been interested in me like they are with other girls; well, maybe I would be attractive as a boy, and then I could be like all these cute “gay trans boys” I saw dating each other online. I didn’t have many friends, it must be because being a girl isn’t my “authentic self”, and that was getting in the way of my social life. Plus, people were nicer to me since I said I was trans so that must be an indication that being trans is the right thing to do to make friends. Female sexuality is hypersexualized and pornified, yet it’s supposed to be “empowering” for women to do porn, be prostitutes, or have dangerous, kinky, scary sounding sex with many different men.

She should have tried hitting them with the old and new testament. Works, and psychologically a lot healthier.

part of me genuinely thought testosterone would somehow make me into this outgoing male jock archetype and I would be handsome, have lots of friends, and love life. That wasn’t really panning out.

What a surprise. No one tells them about the staggeringly high trans suicide rate, because that would be discriminatory. Women and men are too fundamentally different for transition to work. Testosterone works great for men on a male mind and a male body. Disastrous for a female mind and a female body.

During the initial months following my first shot, I recall a general feeling of suffocating numbness and inability to identify my emotions, with bouts of anger that were easy to trigger dispersed throughout. Something that before would have made me mostly sad, or even frustrated, made every cell in my body overflow with rage.

Women cannot handle the psychological effects of testosterone, and not all men can handle it. But in me, testosterone makes stronger and braver, and gives me more, not less, self control. “Roid rage” is a perversion of what testosterone is supposed to do – and if you are already practicing perversion, that is what you will get – it is the psychological impact of testosterone going into perverse and self damaging channels, rather than to its proper telos. And of course, when a woman takes testosterone, there is no proper telos for testosterone’s psychological effect to go into.

I resorted to hitting myself. I would struggle against the anger by punching myself and eventually, after there was enough pain, I could cry and when I cried I’d cry for hours, often falling asleep and not remembering much when I’d wake up.

The testosterone was prompting action, but no proper telos, so self destructive action

I told Jamie that I was regretting my transition and questioning my trans identity in general, and predictably she was extremely upset. She reacted in anger, saying I must be confused and, like my therapist, accusing me of having these thoughts due to some underlying psychological issue, like only an insane person would ever regret being trans.

They generally do not regret being trans, but for some entirely unrelated reason 🙃 are apt to commit suicide. Odd that.

Not odd at all, for regretting being trans is sacrilege against their demons.

Then she reads an essay that depicts trans as socially transmitted insanity:

I was in shock. This was… me! Perhaps more importantly, this was… EVERYONE! All of those young biological females I had been friends with online and offline who identified as trans also fit this exact description.

She succumbed to social pressure from wicked people. And it is hard for anyone, and much harder for women, to resist wicked social pressure unless you can call it wicked. We have several millenia of ancient wisdom, that is proving useful as the Enlightenment goes full demonic.

    Jim, I have a serious suggestion for Christianity. I’m not a Christian but I want to be one, unfortunately Christianity where I live is pretty gay and is all about giving all your money to brown people.

    I prefer some of the older Christian aesthetics, I guess you could call them psychedelic, such as the imagery described in the book of revelations and in John Milton’s Paradise Lost, where Jesus is granted God’s power to expel Satan and his minions from heaven, has a cool sword and chariot. That is possibly a heretical interpretation though and at any rate isn’t in the Bible.

    Anyway, I believe this sort of imagery is much preferable to the modern Jesus aesthetic, which depicts jesus as a quiet hippy. Furthermore most modern Christian music is absolutely atrocious. For (historically) recent Christian music I actually like, there is Olivier Messiaen’s “Quatour pour la fin du temps” which is a modern musical setting of the book of revelation. Messiaen was Catholic so maybe you guys think he’s a fag, idk. I actually have the score for the entire thing, but it may not be your cup of tea as it was somewhat experimental at the time it was written (around 1941). Here’s one of the sections, “”Louange à l’Éternité de Jésus” (Praise to the eternity of Jesus)”

    A problem I’ve thought of too is that men I know who listen to music when they work out commonly listen to rap. Why should nigs be granted this power to bestow masculine energy? Personally I prefer to listen to extreme metal, the kind with unintelligible lyrics and super fast kick drums, but thematically this is 100% degenerate savagery. Still better than nigs imo. The problem is that there is a sense of irony with the extreme metal stuff which doesn’t exist with the nig music, which is what makes it appealing to women and girls; nigs can talk unironically about killing people and banging hos and this makes women wet.

    I’ve posted about nigger music before here, and I remember someone responding with an argument like “Let people who are talented succeed. If niggers have a talent that people find valuable, in this case artistic, they should be allowed to succeed with it”. Firstly I don’t think nigger music is successful because of some talent niggers have, I think it’s due more to the tendency of American media outlets to promote nigger aesthetics over all others for the last 100 years or so. Jimi Hendrix, all these blues guitar players and Jazz guys (Miles Davis hated white people btw, there’s a quote of him saying if he knew it was his last day on Earth he would choke a white man to death) weren’t promoted because they were especially good, but because the unofficial official state religion did similar things then to what its doing now, that is promoting niggerdom.

      Rap music is degenerate. Its popularity is wholly due to globohomo pushing nigger aesthetics. The only reason it has listeners as opposed to, say, transgender aesthetics, is that rap was given an unprincipled exception for black masculinity. Teenagers listen to rap music because it’s the only mainstream music that resonates with their surging testosterone.

      We need a reactionary aesthetic.

      We also need a masculine Christian warrior religion.

      I would be good to have both of them in one package. Hard to get there from here.

      Inherent in Christianity is that its archetype of manliness is the father, the husband, and the King.

      Saint Constantine the Great and Saint Constantine, were, however undoubtedly warriors, Alfred the great is also rated as a Saint in the Anglican church. but Christianity has been reluctant to honor its greatest warriors, for Christian war must be conducted in pursuit of peace.

          Yeah, some Jews argue. Much as the woke want to put blackface on our history. But their arguments are motivated, baseless, and stupid. Jews want to take the credit for everything, but they surely cannot take credit for military success and the creation of large scale social cohesion. There are areas where Jews are impressively good at stuff, and areas where they are inferior.

      • Pooch says:

        There is no such thing as reactionary aesthetic. There is only Christian aesthetic, which we will return to after the next Constantine returns Christianity to power.

          I’ll be plenty happy with that outcome, although I do dream and believe in a reactionary aesthetic. NRx, and this blog in particular, has laid the groundwork for incredibly useful social technology. Which might just give Jimian Christians a significant edge.

      For current Christian Manly music Swedish Metal group ‘Sabaton’ is doing great commercially top-tier success. Their songs are celebrations of excellent warriors giving their all fighting to the death for what they believe in.

      They make bank serving this underserved demand. When a tripleAAA historical war video game is being made, they will often commission a track from them for cross promotion.

      • Frontier says:

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_U6PpATICLo

        Looking at current cool fashion of Sabaton; the number one subbed YouTube live streamer is Gura. Not only did she perform multiple Sabaton songs during an unarchived recent singing stream, she performed a duet of ‘The Last Stand’ for her encore.

        This shows women are naturally attracted to whatever is most masculine.

        It also shows tech anonymity routing around the Cathedral. Gura uses motion capture to stream with a smol shark anime avatar, keeping her identify secret. This, and being partnered with Japanese talent agency Hololive outside the Cathedral’s reach, gives her more freedom to perform pro-warrior and Christian art that she might not be able to do safely as a name/face-fag

              No, they were cucks when they were pagans, hundreds of years before Christianity. They were cucks when they could raid other lands and steal women. They left writing and mathematics to women, and treated magic power as if it belonged to women instead of to man. Scandinavia is being conquered because of their attitudes towards women, which they have had for centuries. Polygamy is a bandage on a neck wound.

                i know what you are referring to with “magic power belonged to women” so feel at ease knowing that that is just what retarded feminists moronically claim with zero backing, but i guess ancient greeks were cucks too, since its the parallel to oracles that are the subject?

                  Any Scandinavian worth his salt must have left Scandinavia long ago. The whole area is so cucked that anyone remotely based is considered a disgusting heretic and treated the way you would a mutant. Which is probably the case, your regular population being so pathetic. The best argument for women with penises is not the XXY chromosomed mutants, it is the Scandinavian people. I would not even bother raping a Scandicuck woman once we reconquer the area because it would contaminate my bloodline. You are a bunch of snowniggers, and I do not want any more of that in my genes than I already have.

                  If we’re taking Finnish and Norwegian girls off the table, I’m going to have to reassess the participation of my war band and what we’re willing to do for the cause. Seems like leaving a bunch of stock on the table for the Mohammedans to take.

      Proper aesthetics are made tradition over centuries by learned spiritual men with resources to refine practices. The Roman Catholic depiction of Hell in Dante’s Inferno took roughly three hundred years to develop, Alighieri taking influence from several of his contemporaries. Any effective modern Christian aesthetic tradition will take centuries to develop and will eventually be foreign to the aesthetic of modernity.

      The Anathema Service may seem foreign and strange at first, but this aesthetic is what fits a masculine Old-Type Christianity. The past is a foreign country, and most of us were born long after Christianity was effectively destroyed.

      Messiaen is one of the better 20th century composers; his music is receiving rising recognition.

      > Jimi Hendrix, all these blues guitar players and Jazz guys…weren’t promoted because they were especially good, but because the unofficial official state religion did similar things then to what its doing now, that is promoting niggerdom.

      Exactly so, though this is not reserved for nigger music. The Beatles and the British Invasion, part of the social revolutions of the 1960s, were endorsed by the regime for similar reasons. When niggers are no longer worshiped their music will become associated with gutter trash and people will listen to classical music more often.

But her desire to cater to those with a gay-identified disease is overriding any strategic thinking she might otherwise be able to do.

    King Thundercock III states: “Reaching a critical mass among violent men is the end goal.”

    Pax adds: “…support is not irrelevant because it is used to build that army… [what the] Neo-Reaction[ary] understands is how to use power, and for what to use power for… to increase it.”

    Jim responds: “We cannot capture the GOP and Fox News… the GOP [and Fox] will die, and we will loot the corpse.”

    St. John observes: “Normiecon: ‘I shall carefully consider each issue on its own merits’.
    Bluetribesman: ‘I shall increase the number of my guys in this organization, and reduce the number of their guys’.”

    Pooch states: “…fighting men don’t matter… We need to convert the elite before they convert our sons.”

    We know from study and experience that the Right cannot just ape the Left and expect the same results. The Left has a full stack and a full deck, so successes are magnified, and mistakes and blunders are minimized. The Right has very few tools to work with. Half their tools are unusable, and the other half are systemically polarized for efficacy, by which I mean the tools they think are useful and powerful are basically worthless and weak, and the ones they disregard and shun are the very tools they need to be using. So there is a significant quandary here: develop new tools and methods, or work to get the Right to recognize the polarity of value is reversed, or pursue both, or pursue neither and plan for a full spectrum loss (this last one is the safest and probably most likely to be successful; I have personally shunned it and, per Pooch and some other men’s statements, I’ve decided to dig a trench. Others with the capacity and toleration should consider Project redoubt).

    The Sperg Right is convinced “the masses” don’t matter. There’s some credence to this assertion, but they toss the baby with the bath water by going full underpants Gnome (1. Acquire Elites 2. ??? 3. Restoration). There is a hierarchy to elites, and circumstances, sample size, and a bunch of other factors change the alignment. Local high elites in Arkansas are not the same as high elites in NYC. Rockstar v. Moviestar is an inconsistent one, depending on the setting and season. Technocrats and wonks in one room are pinnacle elites, yet in another they are faceless drones and sycophants. So if a ton of energy is spent on capturing elites, a good amount of thought should be put into the targeting process. Ideological capture of 100 mayors might be far more beneficial than 10 senators, but the opposite could be true as well. Would you rather recruit 10 actors, 5 directors, or 2 writers?

    The masses don’t matter, but numbers do, because quantity has a quality all its own. If you have strong supporters in every single sheriff’s department, how would it stack up to control of the entire NYPD? The quantity argument is slippery, kind of like the old pothead thought experiment: how many 8 yer olds could you successfully destroy if they came at you in waves of 10 every five minutes?

    What profit it a merchant if he gain the presidency but lose his support? Taking an institution and taking over an institution are not the same thing. Rex Tillerson was given control of the State Department, but Bono and Angelina Jolie were given control of State Department’s sense of Self. The latter was a better strategic position, which is why those 2 empty heads are still Powerful, and no one knows or cares who Rex Tillerson is. Capturing “the elite” in an organization may give a measure of control, but dictating the temperament and signalling of the mid and lower levels of the same institution is the long game.

    As I see it, we don’t need the GOP or Fox, we need the people that used to and still do look to, pay attention to, donate to those entities. There are more ways to kill a cat than just drowning it in cream. There may be some great on-paper ideas that won’t stand up to reality because the vessel is ill-suited to the task, just as there may be some sub-optimal methods that don’t seem very good, but stand a higher chance of working with the tools at hand and the facts on the ground. I think forming a quiet culture of parallelism is one of those “sub-optimal on paper” approaches. I think the up front costs are lower, the stakes are lower, and the resources required are already in place and need only to be connected and coordinated. Parallelism combined with alternative Media combined with B&R churches; food for the body, fodder for the mind, fortitude for the soul.

If we set fashion among the men who set fashion among fighting men, on a long enough scale we have already won.

If we do a similar work, then when Rod Dreher is telling young conservatives bound for the military that DC needs to be burned, we will just hop in the Humvee next to Constantine.

                Respectfully, I disagree. I know passivism keeps “us” out of “the game,” but I think there is room for activity in local politics. The margins are incredibly narrow, the stakes are obvious, and there are loads of people who want to be active but lack guidance. Developing a system to primary and punish, if succesful, would be a great way to get face time and contact with the next level up of the conservative political class. Success breeds success, though it also brings scrutiny. Protesting doesn’t work, but using extremity and hyperpartisanship does work, with the danger coming from the Cuckstablishment on the Right, not the Left.

                  Trump is working on it, sort of succeeding. The sort of success that is only possible by embracing enemies that he must know by now are going to stab him in the back. I see no end of hostile enemy entryists against the republican wing of the Republican party, the absolutely standard Cathedral tactic that we see over and over again. They are not announcing what moderates they are. – They are aping the language of real Republicans, without understanding or caring what the words mean – like the lower grade of entryists we see here on this blog.

                  Are they fooling anyone? Probably not fooling Trump, but he finds it inadvisable to smell the brimstone and notice the cloven hooves, or draw attention to the tinfoil halo that keeps falling off.

                  As the entryists here pretend to be reactionaries, the entryists there pretend to be Republicans. And they do it as poorly as the entryists here do it. They are not Republicans. They oppose free and fair elections, uttering meaningless words on the issue, shiftily ambiguous about the steal. They want your children abducted by child protective services and sold to gay couples.

                  But I am a little King of this domain, so not a problem. On Gab, or in the Republican party, harder to deal with entryists. And in the Republican party, very hard to deal with entryists because backed by the media, the prosecutors, and the judiciary. You will not be able to purge entryists pretending to be Republicans unless you are able and willing to apply violence.

                  I see organized religion of the Christian remnant, in the US in particular, in the right denominations doing something immensely useful. It is allowing people to reproduce.

                  This is invaluable as our state religion becomes increasingly and massively hostile to reproduction. Yes there are problems, particularly with male authority, but there is an army of kids running around these churches (PCA, LCMS, SSPX, etc) indicating working and scalable social technology that is live running in a production environment.

                  Early Christianity was not a political movement. In fact, just the opposite. It was strictly forbidden for any Christian to engage in anything that was linked to the Roman pagan gods and idol worship. This meant no military, no gladiator games, no festivals.

                  The goal was to get people out of the decadent Roman pagan system and into a healthy moral community of people capable of reproduction. Apparently martyrdom only made this community grow. Eventually this community grew sizable enough for Constantine to call on (16-17% of the population) and conquer in its name.

                • jim says:

                  Assuming a three percent difference in population growth rates, which is a very ordinary difference between a pro marriage faith and an anti marriage faith, the Christian population would have grown by factor of four thousand by biological expansion in the three centuries between the resurrection and Constantine conquering Rome. Assuming a four percent difference, sixty thousand.

                  Constantine was outnumbered two to one, and launched a simple frontal attack across the line, which tactic, or deliberate absence of any tactics, presupposes better troops, or better equipment, or troops a lot more willing to fight. Rome and the enemy is that way, advance.

                  His troops were fighting under the banner of Christ.

                  Worst case outcome, we form an organized religion or influence an existing organized religion to become a pro family patriarchal male supremacist organized religion, recruiting priests in accordance with the instructions of saint Paul (recruited from married men with well behaved children) and stick out persecution for three centuries as Christians did the first time around.

                  That the Old and New Testament positions on women and marriage are in accordance with nature or natures God, the Logos, follows from red pill, understood in the light of evolutionary game theory. The Enlightenment attacked reason by subverting its foundations in the name of reason. Reason needs faith, for without faith the solvent of supposedly universal skepticism, selectively applied, leaves reason in the void with nothing to stand on, and Faith needs reason, or else, as Saint Augustus points out, will be foolish and subjected to well deserved ridicule, thus the faith should integrate the red pill and evolutionary game theory into it interpretation of the Bible.

                  You repeat Jim’s assertion that we need elites for a holy war, and this is something we are in agreement with, yet your comments illustrate a lack of understanding of why this is and how elites operate.

                  Christians could have made up roughly 5% of the Roman Empire at Constantine’s ascension, but these assertions without proper census data are all conjecture. Just as one finds the more modern the historiography the more backward the pre-revolutionary Russian economy, the assumed population of Christians at around the time of Constantine rises to corroborate the narrative of Christianity as part of the inevitable march of history.

                  Even if Christians made up one out of six members of the Roman Empire this would falsify the notion that martyrdom led to mass conversions. There were more martyrs as a result of the Bolshevik Revolution than all others combined in the history of Christianity, yet the masses did not flock to the churches until after the fall of the Soviet Union.

                  Elites are needed for a holy war because elites are not capable of moderation. Elites operate on the basis of consensus through a faith, and consensus is maintained through consistency. A prole will go to a pro-life rally one morning and file his daughter’s college application that same evening and think nothing of it, whereas an elite cannot. The vast majority of American elites are Progressives or at best Cuckservatives not only due to power but also because it is not socially acceptable to be a consistent Christian.

                  Martyrdom worked not because it led to an abundance of proles joining the group currently being killed in the arena, it worked because it weeded out unserious and moderate people, leaving out only those whom desired nothing other than to act in a morally consistent manner despite the social pressures of polite society.

                  The way one plays to win is not by bandwagoning on whatever sectarian group has the highest number of the roughly one percent of its denomination that practices its religion more seriously than not at all, it is by backing the most reactionary form of Christianity. The Amish are more moral and consistent than SSPX, forget PCA. Our elite is not going to be found in the less-cuckservative factions of various sectarian groups, but in our current elite disaffected with Progressivism and desiring something different.

                  The Amish are the farthest from the elite as possible. Will never be fashionable.

                  The PCA is representative of an old unconverted aristocratic Anglo elite. The Christian Southern Anglo was not fully subjugated during Reconstruction and its faith has survived.

                  As Jim says, best case we influence an existing organized religion to become a pro family patriarchal male supremacist organized religion. The obvious candidate I see is Presbyterianism that has survived in the PCA.

                  The improper syntax on my above post makes it seem like I am asserting that the Amish are the most reactionary Christian group, my bad. I have always asserted that Orthodox Christianity is the most theologically and spiritually ancient and thus most reactionary form of Christianity. The Amish are a sectarian offshoot of the German Anabaptist movement.

                  The idea that we could walk into some Southern Reformed theological seminary and recruit them into Jimian reaction is more insane and absurd than bringing the Amish into the White House on a horse-drawn carriage because at least the Amish practice traditional marriage somewhat consistently. Most Southern Calvinists and their ministers are cuckservatives. A church having children is not indicative of the overall social health of the wider congregation because those without children seldom attend services. What matters is the marital practices of those congregations and the personal beliefs of their clergy.

                  > Elites are needed because the elite set the fashion, not the masses. The masses follow elite fashion.

                  My point was not on how elites operate with proles but on how elites differ from proles and how this affects politics. Proles cannot be relied upon because they are natural slaves and lack the mental architecture to detect logical and moral inconsistencies on a three-dimensional level. The elite sets fashion because his objective is to acquire power, done through consensus (logical consistency, extremism) on an applied religion. The Whites lost to the Reds because the Whites could not cohere on Christianity and appoint a new Tsar, while the Reds could cohere on Communism and defeat the Whites in detail.

                  > As Jim says, best case we influence an existing organized religion to become a pro family patriarchal male supremacist organized religion. The obvious candidate I see is Presbyterianism that has survived in the PCA.

                  The problem is that you are not arguing for PCA on the basis of their theology, morality, doctrine or politics rather your assertions of them adhering to 1950s marriage practices, of which as a group they do not.

                  My argument is that elites require a faith of which they can cohere, adopt, and implement, and the best candidate is Orthodox Christianity because it is most ancient and most doctrinally pure.

                  …it is by backing the most reactionary Christianity, of which I have always asserted is Orthodoxy on the basis of her doctrine. If we are to decide which sect to implement on the basis of them practicing traditional marriage, the Amish are more consistent than SSPX or PCA. Speaking as a member of our disaffected Progressive elite, our plan should not be to adopt a Christianity based on cultural familiarity rather doctrinal considerations because elites coordinate on doctrine, not cultural norms.

          Think about this for a second. John Q. Middleroad senses impending Troubles, so he finally mans up, buys a gun, and takes a class. At the front of the room, some red blooded, bearded, muh service GWoT vet tells a bunch of stories, gives them 25 minutes of quickdraw inanities, then straight up informs them that, should they use the weapon, they better have a lawyer on retainer and 75-250,000 in the bank *just to consider fighting the case.* This is my ouvre, but I bet other lads here could come up with plenty of examples of how the act of “doing something” also carries a payload of “do something and you’re fucked.” This extends into the political class as well, as I have come to find. In local politics, there are more than enough B&R’d candidates to have the “1000 men,” but the moment they “get serious,” or are taken seriously, they are inundated with poison pills about “reasonable expectations,” going along to get along, and working within the system.

          To get to a place where boldness and valor can even be considered as options, a space must be created for reasonable expectation of survival, even more success. Maybe someone here is “face” material, but I kind of doubt it. I think the lads here are better employed and deployed as advisors, consiglieri, and backroom/back channel operatives. This is why I keep coming back to parallelism.

      I think one of the biggest mental blocks many people have when thinking on these sorts of matters, is a sort of notion of ‘mutual exclusivity’; that is they need to ‘focus’ on ‘one’ particular ‘strategy’, which necessarily entails you must exclude openness to other opportunities, even if in reality no such barriers exist.

      Eg, you could say as a truism that ‘elite support is the most important thing’; but then in some folk the internalization of this truism can result in a strange kind of inversion of ought and is; that if some measure coincidentally also entails a growth of support from parties that are not so elite, you must then reject it, because that is not ‘focusing on elite support’.

      Power is like gravity; the more of it you have, the more you may find all sorts of odds and ends end up being pulled into it’s orbit, and you should be open to that.

      The path to power can take many winds and wends, which no man can truly anticipate in full ahead of time; and those men who most often found their way to the far end of that path, were those with a willingness to walk through any and every door they found opening up in their way.

                  Those who defect early will have to exterminate the rest of the elite and the new elite will have to be rebuilt from scratch.

                  BTW to clarify on Jesuit education… anyone with one in public institutions will be have to be examined… anything the least bit suspect they will have to be assumed to be a Jesuit coadjutor (like Fauci and Redfield) and dealt with accordingly. If there offense is small perhaps they can live out their life in obscurity (under constant surveillance) otherwise they must die.

Wulfgar points out, for the millionth time, that NPCs are NPCs. If they stand between today and a viable future, they’ll get mowed down. But they will do so because their firmware hasn’t been updated, not because they’re consciously choosing to block the restoration. I’d love for someone to build a Glooper that could give us an accurate NPC proportion of the population, but I’m also starting to think that everyone is an NPC in some game out there, even if they’re fully conscious in other respects or circumstances. So what we’re actually talking about are political NPCs, religious NPCs, and violence NPCs.

            People with character defects (leftists, females etc.) do not understand cooperative games. Every fair trade is a win/win game and also a lose/lose game. Ideally both win something scarce and lose something abundant. Understanding this is beyond the capability of most people. To an incompetent person (or malevolent person), even a mutually beneficial fair trade will be seen as a loss.

            Females and leftists gain power by acting as one. Not because they can cooperate, they cannot, but because they are all going after the same thing.

            In order to stop this (it is happening at the very top to the very bottom) the elites will have to start acting as one.

                  When a woman argues with you, she wants to be commanded or slapped, not argued with, and if she does not get what she wants, she gets angrier and angrier.

          Obama is not eligible for vice presidency for the same reason he is not eligible for the presidency. American laws don’t have loop holes that easy to exploit. Otherwise the 22nd amendment would be completely pointless, since this is a very obvious way to avoid the issue. Just elect someone else in your party and become president again. Doesn’t even require any deaths.

          The 12th amendment prevents this:
          https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/amendmentxii

  9. Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

    Tangential, but it’s funny seeing broadcast news report on all the gigtuple boosted shotmaxxers in the political class catching cases of kung flu lately. Especially how they defer on any elaboration of the subject and keep it as perfunctory as it can be.

    • jim says:

      A leaky vaccine causes its disease to counter evolve. Worst case outcome, a very common outcome, is that the disease regains full infectiousness against the vaccinated, or greater than its original infectiousness, becomes more lethal to unvaccinated, and regains its original lethality against the vaccinated.

      Another very common outcome, probably the most common outcome, which I am happy to see happening here, is that it counter evolves to become more infectious to the vaccinated, and more lethal to the vaccinated than the unvaccinated.

      That a leaky, partially effective, vaccine remains partially effective is a quite rare outcome.

      Early on, it looked like what was happening might well be the former case, with the vaccinated spreading the disease, and only the unvaccinated getting a nasty case of a nasty flu. On the other hand it has long been obvious the clot shot causes immune system damage, though as yet unclear if the immune system damage is permanent, so of course the disease would evolve to be less harmful and less infectious to the unvaccinated. The disease seems to be focusing on the pool of people with impaired immune systems: Gays and the clot shotted.

      • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

        The normiecon take would be ‘yet another perfect opportunity to Expose The Lies of The Establishment’ and ‘Wake The People Up’.

        Certainly, one might reasonably think such turns of events would provoke conniptions and contortions of cognitive dissonance in those with a span of memory; but the way it seems to be being handled is to just pretend absolutely nothing is unusual or out of the ordinary about this at all, in hopes that the normies just roll with it; which largely seems to be the case, particularly since most everyone is presently distracted by the next Current Thing.

      • Skippy says:

        Remember that these are not “vaccines” in the traditional sense. The vaxxxed are not reacting on the whole virus but a very small part of it. The evolutionary pressure is for this small part to change rapidly, which eliminates all the vaccine-acquired immunity but only a small part of the infection-acquired immunity.

        I believe this is an historically unprecedented case.

        • Skippy says:

          Is it of interest to anyone that every vaccine company in the West immediately and simultaneously had the questionable idea of only vaccinating against the spike protein, while now two years later no vaccine company has produced a vaccine against the very much changed spike protein of the current variant of the virus?

          Does it take 4 days to adapt to these proteins of 4+ years? Why does no one react to the effortless vaccine escape to the spike-based vaccines by importing a Chinese inactivated virus vaccine? Or why these questions are not even discussed?

          • jim says:

            We now know that the original spike protein was human created in a lab, and it sure was not Shaniqua doing it. The vaccine was created at the same time, and bears strong signs of Shaniqua’s handiwork. Someone very dumb was giving orders to a team containing smart engineers.

            Which does not explain why they don’t just re-run the synthesis with latest spike protein, which is rapidly evolving to flourish in an environment containing artificially and unnaturally high levels of antibodies against the original spike protein, which is no longer around.

            Possibly they are worried that if they update the vaccine, then research into the disastrous side effects of the first vaccine becomes legitimate.

  10. Pax Imperialis says:

    Thoughts on Rod Dreher? He has been writing about the trans cult extensively in the past couple weeks.
    Look at his recent articles since March 28 on trans cult:

    ‘Institutional Capture’ At Disney
    Disney Queers Children, Says Disney Exec
    Disney Goes Groomer

    Dreher wrote:
    “Groomers? Oh hell yeah. I don’t care how loud they howl, this is purely evil, and ordinary people have got to wake up to what schools, the Walt Disney Company, the medical profession, the media, the Democratic Party, and the President of the United States are doing to children and families. They can howl all they want about how mean and demagogic we are for calling them groomers.”

    I think Dreher is indicative that Neo-reactionary thought is capturing what have been only nominally Conservative institutions. Esoteric terms like ‘The Cathedral’ are now occasionally used by even the likes of Greg Gutfeld (Sophomoric and nonacademic). That isn’t a term that is well know outside of Conservative intellectuals or those with familiarity, and yet it is being aired out in the open to those in the know. These are reasons to be pessimistically optimistic that while Conservatives have not captured the national institutions of power, they are in the process of capturing the opposition… If Conservatives can transform that opposition into national power is yet to be seen, but it’s not so different of a position that American Communists found themself in when they started on the long march through the institutions last century in so far they held little in the way of national power but had captured the opposition. Of course right wing and left wing methods of capture differ in process, but both start in the same place. Intellectual capture of sympathetic portion of leadership, something that Nrx has started to do in an increasingly fast pace.

        > Thoughts on Rod Dreher?

        Conservatism is fake, but with the state and education system pushing to transition nine year old children, a push driven by people who make no very great secret of wanting to fuck them, old type Christianity has woken up, and this is the vector through which the Dark Enlightenment and the reaction is entering conservative spaces. Christ in front, us following right behind. Christian conservatism is finding that Christianity is no longer in a deathlike sleep, because people are seeing their children threatened.

        Conservatism inc is not worth taking over. It is, however, worth getting people to abandon that sinking ship. That Rod Dreher is writing some good stuff indicates he is going to leave or be expelled, and a lot of good people with him.

        There is no realistic prospect of us taking over conservative spaces, which are committed to behaving as if elections were still real, which requires them to accept ever more blatantly illegitimate political outcomes as legitimate, and ever more vicious, hateful, and unpopular state actions as normal and reasonable.

        But, to the extent that we have penetration, we are successfully delegitimizing fake elections, and denormalizing the new normal.

        Rod Dreher is writing some good stuff, within the narrow and narrowing limits of conservatism incorporated.

        But conservatism incorporated’s end objective is “winning” rigged elections, whereas the only useful end objective is not winning elections, but winning the coming holy war.

        The coming removal of Biden is likely to be a shambles, because he was a placeholder for a compromise between the left factions that has not been made, and is unlikely to be made.

        Sooner or later left on left conflicts are going to turn lethal. I was expecting that they would have turned lethal early in 2021, which has not happened yet. But even when they do turn lethal this will not immediately open a space for us to use lethal means. Probably not for some considerable time. For the moment, delegitimizing elections and the new normal is a good start.

        Will the removal and replacement of Biden turn lethal? Probably not, or not yet for some time, but it is likely to further discredit the political process, since the outcome, even if non lethal, is likely to involve people grabbing for power in ways that show little regard for legality and the constitution. It is likely to not quite lethally prefigure a lethal power struggle, rendering the irrelevance and impotence of conservatism inc more visible.

        • Pax Imperialis says:

          Conservatism is a brand, and brands have power. The substance might be lacking (and fake) but that isn’t a reason on it’s own to discard it. It’s all the more reason to seize it as a hollowed out power structure is just begging for a hostile take over by someone who will use it. What Musk is doing with Twitter is interesting on a side note. It was a lot of money to dump into a project that in his words might be dying and is historically hostile to him.

          Just because conservatism’s end objective is “winning” rigged elections doesn’t mean it will stay that way. People change based on the circumstances and so do institutions. I have my doubts that Conservatism will continue to be invested in voting. Roman citizens did not always support Caesar, overtime they stop supporting the Republic.

          The Claremont Institute last year published an essay calling for counter-revolution against the “majority of people living in the United States today [who] can no longer be considered fellow citizens.” In the past that would have gotten most other conservative institutes and power working together to ostracize and dismantle Claremont. The fact that Claremont Institute has not been dismantled is circumstantial evidence that it is receiving political protection, meaning that they are not alone in sharing sentiment. Claremont is still in good standing with most conservative circles. Is Claremont still a conservative space or has it been taken over?

          I do not think Dreher has remained in the limits of conservatism incorporated. On the contrary he’s been going against it with seemingly no push back. Seeing Orban as good and war with Russia bad is going into areas still very taboo and yet he still has his job. That indicates political protection from friendly elements in conservatism. I do not think that there is no realistic prospect of us taking over conservative spaces. Rather conservative spaces are currently in the process of being taking over. I’m not sure how it’s being done, but conversions appear to be a part of it. The actions of Thiel among others might be pointing to hostile take overs being a factor.

          What value is there in removing Biden? Is there any evidence that Biden is actually running anything? Clearly decisions are still being made so someone is running things. The actual power remains remains in the administration. It’s very possible that Biden continues along in office until end of term.

          • Pooch says:

            Roman citizens did not always support Caesar, overtime they stop supporting the Republic.

            Roman citizens supporting Caesar had absolutely no relevance on the ending of the Republic. He marched on Rome and by force of arms dissolved the authority of the Senate.

            • Pax Imperialis says:

              And who marched on Rome with Caesar? Who commanded his legions on the tactical level? How was his forces provisioned? He did not march alone, he had popular support from those who mattered. The Roman citizen who wield force. More importantly for his legacy, it was his popularity with the right segment of Rome that ensured Augustus did not get purged and could carry on the legacy after his death.

              Caesar did not act alone, he had allies. Many of whom would have been horrified by Caesar’s actions prior to the conditions that made crossing the Rubicon possible, but at the time that mattered, supported him.

              American conservatives right now might not support a coup, but given the right circumstances will.

                This is the point I want to drive home. Reaching a critical mass among violent men is the end goal.

We can’t simply write off the GOP as fake because even fake things have value that can be looted and utilized. The GOP is worth capturing. So it Fox News, and as many of those conservative think tanks as possible.

                  The great failure of Neo-Reaction is the failure to understand institutional capture. Something that Trump excelled at with breaking the Never Trumpers in the GOP. His problem is that he did not want to exercise power outside of (mythical) US traditions and he did not know how to use power to accomplish his end goals.

                  What Neo-Reaction understands is how to use power, and for what to use power for to increase it.

                  We should be persuading the likes of Rod Dreher while purging the likes of David French because that is how institutional capture works for the right.

                  We cannot capture the GOP and Fox News. Trump, in the course of attempting to capture the GOP, is making compromises with his enemies that will bite him this time as they bit him last time, and he has written off Fox News as a lost cause.

                  What we can capture is their best elements.

                  Fox News is no longer relevant. All enemy captured institutions die. Paul Rogan gets way more views than they do. The GOP will die, and we will loot the corpse.

        All bibles are copies of copies of copies. To prevent the accumulation of copyist errors, the universal Orthodox Church would from time to time pull in bibles from all over the place, and cross check them, but when lands came under Muslim domination, this process stopped. It also stopped in the West for a long time, because of the great schism, and was never carried out in some ancient places that schismed from orthodoxy, but eventually the Roman Catholic Church got its act together on this issue, though it took a while As a result, there are a lot of variant texts around for hostile scholarship to mine for ammunition, primarily from lands that have long been under Muslim domination.

When I crossed referenced passages from the King James from the older Greek versions lots of nuances in the Greek did not survive. Further translation problems arose when translating from of the King James version into other languages outside of Europe due to various concepts in the English simply not having direct equivalent vocabulary in other languages.

          Language is in constant flux, a form of information entropy that naturally occurs. A modern American reading King James is likely to read it differently than the original writers. On the surface level we see this with American Protestantism and constant schism even among groups that still use older Bible versions.

            If you are reading a modern bible, it relies on “scholarship” by scholars who just don’t like people who unironically read and quote from the Bible.

            The modern scholars, in comparing variant texts, were in theory doing the same thing as the Church has always been doing – but they plainly were not.

      I completely agree, though, it’s not an easy argument to make, and I haven’t always been successful in convincing people of it.
      I think it’s obvious on the one hand, but if you were convinced it is “big business” controlling the world you’d find no end of reasons to believe it. After all it’s a narrative that is implicitly and often explicitly approved by the Cathedral itself.

      That should set some alarm flags if you consider yourself part of the opposition, though with national-socialist/fascist types and adjacent they usually rationalize it as them wanting to divert from it actually being specifically jews, and not all rich people.

      Billionaires certainly have immense power compared to an average person, but they don’t have any power to meaningfully change the world politically unless their politics align with academia (eg, Bill Gates). The fact that they *do* fund politics, and that lobbyists influence it, muddies the water, but they could never influence it as much if they were against the system.

      I think the strongest argument here is that you can say no end of bad things about billionaires and big corporations and face no punishment, in fact you can do it on live TV.

      Second Corinthians 3:6 needs to be read in the context of the Christian critique of Phariseeism as defiance and opposition to the Logos. The trouble is ministers reframing it in the context of Jesus the Jewish community organizer, instead of Christ as the Logos.

      I have told this story too many times before, but will tell it again. I should promote it to a post, and probably will so that I do not need to keep repeating it.

      The Jews were Jewing God. They still are.

      If you have a bunch of laws issued by God, you are going to have a bunch of lawyers Jewing God. So what should God and man do about this problem?

      The eternity of Jesus should be understood in the context that the Jews were, and still are, Jewing God, treating the law like a contract, promise, or bet with a Goyim to be creatively, legalistically, and literally interpreted without regard to the other party’s intent and expectations, without regard to meeting of the minds, following the letter of the law to evade the spirit of the law.

      OK says God, legalism is not working, too many damned lawyers. I will implement the same thing in a way that could work in today’s lawyer infested social context.

      He did not say “I will implement a different and morally better thing” This postchristian interpretation of Second Corinthians 3:6 presupposes Jesus the Jewish Community organizer, and always results in some form of non Trinitarian post Christian religion, in which Christ is not the logos, and did not exist from before the beginning of the world.

      In the time of Jesus, as now, the Jews were Jewing God, violating the law by scrupulously and carefully obeying it. Gnon was not amused, and the Jews suffered dreadful consequences.

      Legalism had become rejection of the commandments, instead of observance of them.

      It was divinely prophesied that if the Israelites collectively violated the commandments, they would be expelled from Israel. They violated the commandments, Jewing God by strictly observing the letter of the law in ways that violated the spirit and intent of the commandments, and, by massively violating the commandments, pissed off their neighbors, among them the Romans. Cause and effect. And because they were terribly self righteous about their violation of the commandments, one thing led to another. Chance and necessity. And the Romans expelled them.

      The letter of the law, under the accretion of new laws to deal with new circumstances, and the scribes and pharisees re-interpreting and re-re-interpreting old laws, had come to have meanings and effects grossly contrary to the spirit and intent of the commandments.

      This is addressed at length in the New Testament, but is most unambiguously revealed not in the New Testament, but in the incidents that led to the prophesied expulsion of the Jews from Israel.

      The New Testament ends just before these incidents, probably because the people who were writing it all got killed in them.

      The letter of the law ended because following the letter of the law had become wicked, and this wickedness led to disastrous consequences.

      Legalism had became the grossest possible violation of the commandments, which violation pissed off not only Jesus and Christians, but also Israel’s neighbors, and among them, the short tempered six hundred pound gorilla, Rome.

      Shortly after murdering Paul, James, and James’s wife, the Jews murdered a Roman cop. And because they were as self righteous about this incident as they were about murdering the disciples one thing led to another, and eventually to mass murder on an enormous scale.

      The Jews were so uptight about avoiding contamination by blood, that in order to avoid walking on land contaminated by chicken blood, they proceeded to violate the commandments on coveting, stealing, and murder. They got themselves covered in the blood of a Roman cop who was courageously attempting to impartially enforce Roman order to the benefit of all, illustrating in blood Jesus’s rant about whited sepulchers and his lectures on the spirit of the law, rather than the letter of the law. And not long thereafter, they illustrated those lectures in oceans of blood.

      Pharisaical legalism manifested as coveting, robbery, and murder, while Christian legalism (which is far less common) tends to manifest first in adultery, then in sodomy and trannieism.

      On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promiced the Fuller Life
      (Which started by loving our neighbor and ended by loving his wife)
      Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
      And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: ‘The Wages of Sin is Death’

      The Pharisaical Jews at the end of the second temple period wound up murdering a whole lot of Pharisaical Jews, and burned the food stores while Jerusalem was under siege by the Romans.

      The second Christian heresy was the super strict chaster than thou sexual morality of Nicolas the Deacon, one of the seven Deacons appointed by the apostles, which in practice manifested as cuckoldry and adultery, as the strict sexual morality of today’s Vatican manifested first in liberally nullifying inconvenient marriages, and now as sodomy. Married priests with obedient children are unacceptable, but priests having sex with each other in a great big pile are consenting adults.

        https://www.unz.com/runz/american-pravda-oddities-of-the-jewish-religion/

        Furthermore, religious Jews apparently pray to Satan almost as readily as they pray to God, and depending upon the various rabbinical schools, the particular rituals and sacrifices they practice may be aimed at enlisting the support of the one or the other. Once again, so long as the rituals are properly followed, the Satan-worshippers and the God-worshippers get along perfectly well and consider each other equally pious Jews, merely of a slightly different tradition. One point that Shahak repeatedly emphasizes is that in traditional Judaism the nature of the ritual itself is absolutely uppermost, while the interpretation of the ritual is rather secondary. So perhaps a Jew who washes his hands three times clockwise might be horrified by another who follows a counter-clockwise direction, but whether the hand-washing were meant to honor God or to honor Satan would be hardly be a matter of much consequence.

        Strangely enough, many of the traditional rituals are explicitly intended to fool or trick God or His angels or sometimes Satan, much like the mortal heroes of some Greek legend might seek to trick Zeus or Aphrodite. For example, certain prayers must be uttered in Aramaic rather than Hebrew on the grounds that holy angels apparently don’t understand the former language, and their confusion allows those verses to slip by unimpeded and take effect without divine interference.

    Hey Jim, wondering what your thoughts are on lesbians? Ive learned over the years that any unowned woman can become a lesbian if her libido doesnt match her mating prospects. Have an ex that “became a lesbian” (huge slut, could no longer fuck alpha males so started hooking up with an alpha lesbian at her work). Some of these alpha lesbians, dont want to call them dykes or butch because they are still feminine looking if not especially attractive, can pull reasonably attractive girls. I assume its because they can ‘act alpha’ in ways that most men would be punished for.

    • jim says:

If you spend any time in black dense areas and inner cities, you will see noggs step into the road the moment they decide to cross.

    Do you think it’s telling that the right is obsessed with a “people hypothesis” of the Cathedral, blaming Jews or secret royal bloodlines or some other foreign element, despite seeing how horrifyingly low the fertility rate of their elites is? Elite universities and the administrative cities for which they provide staffing are population shredders, and “diversity” is cynically used to cover up the paradoxically permanent demographic collapse of the ruling class that must constantly feed on the underclasses. But this is an upward mobility without genuine meritocracy.

    There isn’t much support for an “institutional hypothesis” of our Cathedral ruling class, how they steal the blood of the commoners without their own nature being altered. Even Jews accept converts and new traditions more readily than the elites.

    There isn’t much support for the idea that representative republicanism or compulsory schooling always results in either our current equilibrium (at best) or a leftist holiness spiral. Anything that would require a Constitutional change is ignored in favor of the next caesar and boogeyman show.

      Harvard ruled Massachusetts. In the civil war, in conquered America. In World War I and II, it conquered the world.

      There is complete continuity of ideology, organization, personell, and physical headquarters going all the way back to the founding of Harvard. Same people, same headquarters, same belief system, continually changing, but only changing by a small amount at any one time, even though over the centuries these continual small changes became enormous changes.

      Harvard was founded by priests tossed out of the Church of England by Charles the second.

      Harvard was founded by priests kicked out of the State Church of England for very good cause. Power hungry people coveting what was Charles the Second’s. It was the State Church of Massachussets. It is now the vatican of the State Church of the world. Power hungry then, power hungry now, the one element of their ideology that remains unchanging.

    This post is about women, so not as on topic.

    Spanking/Disciplining a women creates many of the elements that the “emotional roller coaster lows” are supposed to create, but while also doing so in a way that a both is dominant, and suggests to the woman that he intends to keep her.

    Based on that, I believe it makes sense that Spanking/Disciplining a women at the right time during a relationship (namely that the relationship is “far enough”, and that the woman has crossed a line) would be a powerful way to deepen and build a relationship.

            The rhetoric is entirely ‘migrants good’, there is no way to effectively counter signal more migrants in your jurisdiction without hypocrisy so blatant even the room temperature IQs would notice. So they will be forced to accept them or play hot potato, either option is a win from the status quo. Hopefully it sets a precedent; imagine massive flows of migrants shipped from amerikaaner territory to enemy urban centers filled with hostile populations and no-go zones. It will distract them at worst, cause a massive infight, and start to cripple them at best.

        Not so much “nationalist” but rather “populist” can differ greatly.

        Populism and nationalism look identical on the outside, but stand on different fundaments that mix real and imaginary cultural heritages. Such a heritage in Bangladesh is not going to be like the one in Belgium, thus the national-populists channeling these heritages may talk and behave in very similar ways, but will reach different places.

        Or even wear different political skinsuits. In Russia for example the reds are the main anti-mandate force. In the west leftism was taken over by corporate tranny liberasts.

          When he was taken ill I saw an incredible interview by a Sputnik guy who was like “you see, Zhirinovsky should have taken eight Sputniks, and not mixing it with those other shots that are way worse.”

        • Karl says:

          In the West, every nationalist distrusts the government because he recognizes what the government is doing to his people and culture. So the nationalists were very reluctant to follow government preaching to take a clot shot.

          Maybe a populist does not necessarily distrusts his government, maybe does not see it as evil. Anyway, where did Zhirinovsky’s trust come from? He grew up in the Soviet Union. Should have had plenty of experience that taught him to be sceptical whenever he hears official recommendations.

            Cargo-cultism. If the holy west “science” is saying something then it must be true. On a deeper level everyone believes this, including the Hungarian elite, the Russian one, even the North Korea one.

            This is a historical trauma from the industrial age. Before it, the world was made up of a number of civilizational peers: France, Britain, Holland, AustroHungary, Russia, the Ottoman Empire, Persia, India, and China. Some of them were slowly failing, some stagnating, some slowly rising. But the overall balance was such that one center can’t really defeat and absorb another.

            The early conquistadores were gods against stone-age civilizations in the Americas and Africa and Polynesia, but not against peer civilizations.

            The the Industrial Revolution hit and suddenly westerners were steampunk alien invaders who can seemingly crush anyone. Today the other civilizational peers, many of them surviving in stunted and brutalized form, have managed to achieve a sort of parity.

            The west itself is no longer developing at lightning speed. We are reaching a new civilizational parity (as was always the case barring the industrial revolution historical aberration), hence no one will be “the new master of the world” and there will be no “new world currency”. Just a bunch of peer stuff.

            But still, the west still sees itself as the arbiter of cosmic alchemical truths, and it takes immense effort for everyone else to not fall into cargo-cultism centered on this same viewpoint.

    I disagree; the only churches that are even making an attempt to teach the subordination of women are confessional protestants–Westminster confession Calvinists and Book of Concord Lutherans. And also the Eastern Orthodox. All these are churches where at least the clergy are concerned about the details of theology. Evangelicals who consider the details of theology “non-essential” are also failing to teach correctly about the image of God as male and female. Taking the Bible seriously is what leads to a correct understanding of the order of creation, and also to a correct understanding of the Trinity, the person of Christ, the sacraments…when clergy aren’t willing to fight over these things they sure as hell won’t be willing to swim upstream against feminism in the culture, and their congregations won’t be willing to either.

      On the contrary, while Greek Orthodox are a great big pile of faggots who plot against Christians and Christianity while naked in a great big pile (certain rather important monasteries excepted), Russian Orthodox, under the protection of Putin’s nukes, are doing the best job of teaching the subordination of women.

      Confessional protestants have held on to Christianity by repeatedly splitting. When the hierarchy goes globohomo, the faithful split off and form a new Church.

      We see a similar remnant within Roman Catholicism, but their belief system makes splitting impossible, which is a good thing for a state religion, except when your faith is infested with faggots and demon worshipers in the vatican.

      The faithful in Russian Orthodoxy are also a remnant, but they are feeling their oats.

            The second great heresy of Christianity was that the sexual morality of Christianity required one to accept being cucked. Supposedly this was a greater level of sexual purity. (The heresy of Nicolaism, named after Nicolas the Deacon, one of the seven Deacons appointed by the apostles) The apostles dealt with that one firmly and vigorously. Somehow, when I see the Roman Catholic Church giving a diagram of all the heresies, they leave that one out, even though it is condemned in the New Testament repeatedly.

            And when it is mentioned in modern times, they get creative on what the heresy was about.

              The marital debt is definitely discussed appropriately in our chapels and a woman who is refusing her husband sexually would definitely be shamed by the community if they see her failing marriage and catch wind of why it’s happening. I think it’s not explicit in traditional Catholicism that women are our property. It tends to draw on the scriptural basis of women being mans helpmate. Which a man who has taken even a single red pill is going to understand that for what that means. Which is yes, they are our property. Either way, I’m in the church basement every weekend with my kid on my hip as a young dad, red pilling fellow Catholics, mostly over 30s because they’re the ones that need the most work, on what I have learned from here and other places.

                You guys are telling me that Christianity is in better shape than I thought. But I keep asking, and have as yet not been answered. Do you get sermons that are as valuable in dealing with shit tests as the New Testament is?

                • Meat Guy says:

                  I would say yes. It goes along the same lines at obeying Peter and the Bishops. You do what they say unless it contradicts faith and morals, etc. Women in traditional Catholicism do not have any roles other than running the book store or something. If your wife disobeys you, your priest is definitely going to have your back. I’ve not run into any big enough issues yet because I married a teenage girl over a decade younger than me and she just accepts whatever I tell her, but I know Father would back me.

                  The novus ordo is a different story. It is as bad as everyone says it is and the priest probably sucks cock.

                  Traditional Catholic chapels are small, and very tight nit. A guy shows up there, especially a convert with no ties to the parish, and the eligible girls start talking.

        I am a Lutheran, not a Calvinist. The other day there was a bible class, and the woman on zoom who had moved to another state was talking about how the pastor there lets women serve as lectors reading the Old Testament and Epistle. The pastor said very clearly that the Bible says women are not to speak in church or have authority over a man, and that Paul says “it is a shame for a woman to speak in the church.”

        In the dogmatics text still used in the seminaries, written in the 20s, the theologian argues that women should not vote in ecclesiastical assemblies or courts, nor in American elections, that it is a violation of the order of creation. Learning from that dogmatics is part of what led me to this blog.

        But of course the church is weak in this area and has failed to confess clearly during the onslaught of feminism. But the church is Christ’s bride. He doesn’t abandon her when she fails, otherwise He would have abandoned her in the first century.

          • clovis says:

            I am familiar with them. Not really familiar, but a little bit. They are Scandinavian, from the pietistic tradition. Which means they are really concerned with being holy and pious, focusing on the inner life rather than on Christ, His death, and the means of grace.

            However it was common among all non-liberal Lutherans until after the second world war to have big families because pretty much all churches considered contraception a sin. The Laestadians maybe continue to teach that. Or maybe they just value big families.

            Among Missouri Synod pastors there is a growing belief that contraception is forbidden by God. Where a person is convinced of that, big families and also submissive wives follow almost by necessity. A woman who is constantly pregnant has to submit to her husband, or else leave.

              My ex-wife grew up in one of those churches (Apostolic). Interesting people. Definitely very holy people. I always wondered about the birth control thing and the more children = more holy thing if it was the only way the men could get their wives to have sex with them.

As far as I can tell, in the middle of advocating for 30-year occupation of Ukraine with a Xinjiang style scheme of total political surveillance, the author felt a spontaneous urge to genuflect to the Soviet line about American racism, which is a lazy copypaste of the Harvard line about American racism.

      There is a very serious problem of trying to sit between two chairs of Stalinism and Orthodoxy, which are incompatible to the point of being in existential conflict last century. You can understand why Russia still has adherents of both — Stalin was the most recent strong horse while Orthodoxy gives serious answers to serious philosophical problems and motivates people without the need for constant economic winning. But the only overlap point between these worldviews is that their existential conflict was briefly paused to fight against the Nazis, hence the need to explain all modern day geopolitics in terms of Nazis, and the need for pushing oddball syncretism like “did you know Stalin commanded a plane with an Orthodox icon to fly around Moscow to draw a circle of protection against the Nazis”.

        Only in Russia it’s not conscious, it’s more of a deep pre-verbal current among the “deep nation”. But it can be done. If current events push Russia deeper into a militaristic-ancestor worship folk version of orthodoxy, anything is possible.

        • Arakawa says:

          You are correct that Asiatic ancestor-worship has strong potential in Russia, but Orthodox Christianity explicitly demands filtering one’s ancestors into pious and impious and only putting the pious ones in your ancestor shrine. It’s mighty difficult to shoehorn Stalin into the ‘pious’ column just to please the Stalinist-nostalgia fraction, just as it’s mighty awkward to shoehorn support for Orthodoxy into the Stalin narrative. The two ideologies install two incompatible operating-systems on top of the Asiatic base hardware.

      Once Russia has the port, warehouse, and factory area of Mariupol, which you must admit is inevitable soon, then it will be time to make predictions about Kherson and Slovyansk.

      They are still fighting World War I and II, and it is slow going.

      Cathedral strategy is that they will get tired of fighting World War I and II and give up. I think it likely that they will get tired of fighting World War I and II before long, but giving up is another question.

      Russia has reduced military activity around Kherson and withdrawn some troops from around Kherson. The withdrawal near Kiev was from dangerously exposed positions. The salient around Kherson is not dangerously exposed, so I would be surprised if withdrawal happens pending further substantial events.

      Since they obviously intend to take care of Mariupol, once Mariupol is taken, then there will be reflection on what the lessons of Mariupol imply for Kherson.

      Since a major lesson of Mariupol is that the use of World War II tactics to take a city is expensive in the Information Epoch, maybe they will then decide to let it go. Or maybe they will decide it is time to try something different.

        There is tremendous propaganda value in Ukrainian abuse and war crimes against POWs. Russian morale is improved, and the army will refuse to stop fighting until the war is finished. The Russians lost 25 million people fighting Germany; there is no reason why they cannot handle a long war. The Russian press should be increasing the intensity of their propaganda; the Ukrainians as satanic Neo-Nazi pride-parade war criminals who sold their souls to NATO should provide enough material.

        I’m sure it’s already happening, but informally. Men who give up without a fight are fine, but men who resist and then try to surrender are probably finding that Russians are not giving quarter. This is what the Americans did whenever the SS started murdering Americans POWs during WW2.

    The simplist, safest way begin restoring the weaponized faith of Constantine is to freely and regularly associate with men of strength, character, and will, making time to delve into the Word of God, using His Word to interpret things past, the present, the possible futures, and the ways to navigate them.

For those of us here, like myself, who are not good/active/regular members/participants in church, we need sound guidance on how to proceed.

      There is also the option of finding an extant bible study and taking it over, but this is suboptimal in terms of both time/effort required as well as negative feelings/sentiment that the process might engender.

        > Problem is Jesus like Jefferson was a radical leftist

        You pay too much attention to demon worshiping enemy entryists who have entered Christianity to destroy it.

        Progessive Jesus, Jesus the Jewish community organizer, was invented by progressive Christians as they holiness spiraled past Christianity, adopting the view that Jesus came to reform the wicked morality of the Old Testament, and they were now improving it even further, thus holier than Jesus. That Jesus was a radical leftist. In particular, William Wilberforce and his “saints” were saintlier than Jesus, since they were greatly improving on the now out of date morality of the New Testament, as Jesus the Jewish community organizer greatly improved on the then out of date morality of the old. And your demon worshiping pastor is way saintlier than Jesus, being even saintlier than William Wilberforce and his saints.

        The actual Jesus of the New Testament was a radical rightist, upholding the faith of the old testament against holiness spiraling Pharisees, who then (like Orthodox Jews today) were endlessly conjuring up new religious laws while industriously boring loopholes in old ones.

        Jesus addressed the holiness spiral of his day, and the faith of Gnon, expressed in terms of Logos and telos, is the same address today against the holiness spiral of our day.

        The faith of Christ as the Logos retreads the path of Jesus Christ’s condemnation of the Pharisees.

        > how little interaction you have had with serious Christians.

        Enemy entryists are not serious Christians. They get distinctly and quite noticeably uncomfortable when hearing the phrase “Lord Jesus Christ”.

        Never encountered one that can speak the Nicene creed, though I hear that lots of them do speak the Nicene creed. If you encounter one that can speak the Nicene creed, watch him sweat when he speaks it for fear of bursting into flames, and hit him with the parable of the wicked vine dressers. I have never tried this, never having encountered one that can give the affirmation.

        They say “Jesus, Jesus, I love Jesus” all day long because the word “Christ” gives them the heebie jeebies.

              • ExileStyle says:

                The story is richer and more multilayered than that:

                They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.

                But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

                At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”

                “No one, sir,” she said.

                “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”

                One could argue that the emphasis here is more on countering the Pharisees’ worship of the law, crafty trap-setting, and general hypocrisy (perhaps the major theme of his preaching) than condoning/forgiving adultery. If they had truly believed in their law, they would have already stoned her themselves, not brought her to Jesus as a crafty test of his orthodoxy.

                But there is for sure a dose of nascent leftism here. For those who believe in historical-critical reading of the Bible, this passage only occurs in John and not the synoptic gospels. John is the most mystical and likely latest written book. This is clearly more of a Zen koan-like parable than a literal, concrete statement about how to treat adulterers. It is more “If you believe in your law then enforce your law” and none of the cowardly hypocrites did.

                Also, are we sure adulteresses *should* be stoned to death? I mean, slap a nice fat scarlet A on them and kick them out of town, sure. But stoning? This does not seem like a terrible intuition on Jesus’ part. Especially that such a stoning should not be carried out by a bunch of cowardly hypocrites who can’t take responsibility for it themselves.

                  A scarlet “A”? The town did not do that because Hester committed adultery, but because she would not reveal who her partner was. Their desire to “know” this (because to the impotent, knowledge stands in for power) was pathological and tyrannical.

                Jewish law rightly prescribed the death penalty for adultery, and old roman law gave the husband the authority to carry it out.

                New Roman law wiffed out, and in Israel after the Hasmodean dynasty the pharisees pushed their way into the family.

                Solomon in the book of Proverbs presupposes that the husband carries out the death penalty against a man who sleeps with his wife, but nowhere in the Old Testament does it specify who deals with the matter.

                Thing is, this a crime against the husband. So where is the husband?

                What the Pharisees were doing is pushing Jesus into endorsing Jewish law, that would get him killed by the Romans, or not endorsing Jewish law, that would discredit his religious authority.

                So, he wiffed. No one, according to him, condemned her. Thus the husband failed to condemn her.

                Solomon, in the book of Proverbs, makes it clear that the husband has authority to go easy on a male adulterer, so presumably has authority to go easy on his wife.

                So, Jesus, when saying no one condemned her, was tossing the hot potato to the husband, who wiffed, saving Jesus from having to wiff.

                  Scratch what I wrote, this is the correct reading.

                  It would also have been a more obvious reading to anyone witnessing the scene in 1st century Palestine. They would have had Solomon’s words burnt into their hearts.

                  What a badass response on Jesus’ part. Imagine coming up with that on the spot. Or ever. Just perfect execution, doing ten things at once with so few words.

                  It is not intended to be actually lived, but rather make the point that salvation comes from divine grace: That we do not actually deserve it.

                  Immediately after the sermon, his disciples asked him what you are asking:

                  25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?

                  26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

                  A cryptic answer then, but less cryptic now. He did that stuff so that you do not have to.

                  It is obvious that the gospels were written before the fall of the temple. The question then is, were they edited significantly before the fourth century.

                  The internal evidence indicates that they were not, but no proof exists, nor can exist. What we can do is check out the supposed evidence that they were edited before the fourth century. And the people who claim editing are clearly mining for ammo, not looking for facts.

                  My view is that evil is ultimately self destructive. If let loose, emancipated, empowered, it will wither and die, eventually, taking all it can with it to the void. It is headed to non existence, and by resisting it, you are preventing it from reaching its destination. When forced to act virtuously by other men, the would be sinner does not reap his wage.

                  Also note that the examples Christ gives are all minor, not existentially threatening infractions. A slap, a false lawsuit over a minor item, a mile walked. We are meant to infer the relevant cathegories from the examples, and exclude other cathegories – under existential threat, or repeated unrepentant affront, this commandment of Christ does not apply.

                  And perhaps the sinner may be reached by the grace of God through your actions.

                  The previous verses give me more trouble.

                  “34 But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all.” “37 All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.”

                  I know nothing of ancient hebrew customs on oaths, but as a north euro, this hits me as stark raving mad.

            From John— my comments in between verses

            3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

            4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

            5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

            6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

            (What is Jesus writing on the ground? I suspect it is the sins of the accusers)

            7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

            8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

            (Likely writing more sins, he’s basically asking the Pharisees if they have moral standing. Guessing that this woman is a harlot and many/most of them have been her customers in the past)

            9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

            (Notice that the accusers depart in order of presumed wisdom. They know they’re burned and leave. Note that the Law requires that both parties in adultery be stoned, not just the woman)

            10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

            11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

            (Jesus has standing to stone her, but he did not come to condemn the world but to save it. There’s also the subtext here, the Pharisees really wanted Jesus to order a stoning, which is capital punishment, which was reserved strictly to the Romans, because they were looking to kill Jesus. One wonders what would have happened had they presented both parties of the adultery or have had vaguely clean hands themselves. Being the Son of God has its perks I guess).

        • aaa says:

          According to you, there are two options. “Redpill Jesus” (ie jim, but in the first century) and “commie Jesus”. Tertium not datur.

          ok.

          • jim says:

            The way to avoid those two alternatives is other worldly Jesus. But other worldly Jesus winds up with gnosticism, where Christianity does not require a man to be a good friend, a reliable ally, a good husband, a good father, an obedient son, a reliable employee and a good employer. Gnostics always lost, because they could not cohere.

      • restitutor_orbis says:

        Vlad, I’ve had plenty of interaction with Christians and my sense is that you are correct that most Christians today in the US have been heavily brainwashed to view Christianity as a Left-Wing religion and Jesus as a Leftist. The fact that contemporary Christians are still Right-of-Center in the US is a testament to how far Left the Left has already progressed.

        What are, to my mind, open questions are:
        1) Was Jesus *actually* a Leftist as today’s Leftists would claim? I think the answer is no.

        2) Can a version of Christianity that supports reactionary goals be developed and promulgated that is authentic to Scripture and Tradition? I think the answer is yes.

        3) Is there a *better alternative*? I think the answer is no. I can see only a few options:

        a) Neo-Constantian Christianity (Jimianism). Good: It’s based in our Christian civilization. It has a long historical track record. It’s an easy sell, “this is what you’ve always believed.” Bad: We have to overcome pussified current Christianity.
        b) Neo-Hypsistarianism — Greco-Roman Pagan Monotheism. Good: It’s based in our classical civilization. The basic belief is highly compatible with Western civilization. It worships excellence. Bad: The beliefs, beyond the most basic, are basically lost and it would be re-created from scratch. No easy task.
        c) Neo-Zoroastrianism. Good: Nice solution to problem of evil. Encourages a “we are at war” mindset. Very based belief structure. Bad: Persian, while Aryan, is very alien to the West. Current Zoroastrianism has been pozzed, reconstructing would be hard.
        d) Neo-Paganism. Good: It’s based in our classical civilization. It worships old heroic virtues. Bad: Alienates almost all Christians with polytheism. Easy to end up worshipping demons. Feels “weak” compared to God Most High and Christ. If Christianity is right, this is a path to Hell.

        I don’t see a better option than (a). In approaching my various far-right friends, “I’ve been reading about Zoroastrianism” gets weird looks; “I’ve been reading about the monotheism of the Greeks and Romans that Christianity replaced” gets mild interest; “I’ve been reading about the warrior Christianity of the kings and crusaders who forged Western civilization” gets a request to subscribe to my newsletter.

        • Aidan says:

          The problem with Hypsistarianism is that everybody already worships excellence, even when they are told or forced to pay homage to ugliness, incapacity, and evil. Needs contradictory or unfalsifiable beliefs to keep the integrity of the faith, as a loyalty test. Because everybody already believes in excellence, Hypsistos needs a prophet to codify what is excellence with the force of divine law, or any entryist can come in and redefine excellence.

          If on the other hand Theos Hypsistos had a son, who told us how we should worship him…

          Oh wait, He did. We went around that merry-go-round two thousand years ago. Christianity it is.

          • restitutor_orbis says:

            That’s a good analysis Aidan! The question it raises in my mind is whether that means it would be a workable basis for a Jimian religion — use pagan monotheism (Hypsistarianism) rather than OT Judaism but rightly retain Christ as the Logos of Theos Hypsistos.

            I imagine that would attract to the faith those who are repelled by the Semitic or Judaic aspect of Christianity. It would create a blanker slate for us to establish the right social technologies. But it seems like it would be a much harder sell to normies.

            Please note that I’m thinking here as a propagandist or marketer and not as a theologian and I do not claim to be asserting big-T Truth. When I read certain OT and NT passages I feel I am glimpsing Truth, but I sometimes feel the same reading certain Stoic and Hypsistarian passages too.

            • Aidan says:

              “the Semitic or Judaic aspect of Christianity”

              Is demonstrably nonsense. “Semites” are a Y-haplogroup that originated in the Arabian peninsula. The original Israelites of the OT no longer exist genetically. They were pretty much all genocided by Rome, and the survivors mixed with Arabs, Khazars, and all sorts of other migrants to Judea and converts to “Judaism” to produce what we know today as Jews. (The historical irony that modern-day Israel is populated by Arabs claiming to be the natives of the Levant, in conflict with E1b Med natives claiming to be Arabs, amuses me to no end)

              That the Israelites of the OT are unfamiliar with the desert, and that they remember the Black Sea Deluge, says that they came down from the North. Note the incredible similarity between Cain and Abel and the prototypical Aryan twin brother myth. The ancient Aryans on the steppe and the ancestors of Noah hung out.

              God gave the Israelites his Law, to be his priests, and he gave the sons of Aryas the sword, to conquer. The Aryan king of the gods, who Rome called IOVE, and the Israelites called YHWH, are one and the same. And He gave us his Son just as Rome was reaching its peak of conquest, just after Rome had conquered Judea. I see a divine plan there. The Israelites who rejected Christ were destroyed, while Rome accepted Christ.

              Christ’s sacrifice also fulfills the Aryan system of ancestor worship. By sacrificing himself to himself, became the spiritual ancestor of all men, obviating the need for further sacrifices.

              But, as a propagandist, the number of people who would need this account to be convinced is tiny and insignificant.

                • Aidan says:

                  Curled black hair, sure. Descriptions from the OT seem to be similar to depictions in stone from Sumerian times. The hooked nose seems like an Arab trait, Y-haplogroup J to be precise.

              • restitutor_orbis says:

                The arguments for the genetic haplogroups are hard to follow because of so many conflicting or propagandistic sources. I haven’t had the time to do a deep dive. If you have a recommended writer, let me know.

                Hadn’t read/heard the Black Sea Deluge argument nor the Twin Brothers argument for a Caspian/Indo-European origin of the OT Israelites before. Thanks for presenting that.

                I worry that the number of “our people”, or at least potentially our people, who disfavor Christianity due to its affiliation with Judaism is somewhat higher than just “tiny and insignificant.” I encounter it a lot online… Arguably our entire movement is tiny, and we don’t need to really concern ourselves with any given niche of a niche, as Caesar will bring the normies and normie palatability is all that matters.

                I can’t remember which book it was, either The Controversy Of Zion (Douglas Reed) or Who We Are (William L. Pierce), that made a strong case the original non-Judahite Israelites were whites, which helped me some.

                  You have been listening to too many Jewish enemy entryists against Christianity.

                  Judeo Christianity is a heresy soundly and thoroughly rejected in the New Testament. Read up on the parable of the Wicked Vinedressers, and what Paul, a former pharisee, has to say about Jews.

                  If a supposed Christian denies or disowns the message of the parable of the wicked vinedressers, not a Christian, but an enemy entryist.

                  That said, I don’t think the curse on the Jews for deicide is eternal. But to lift it, they have to collectively repent of legalism, of the death of Christ, and of all the stuff the Pharisees got up to.

                • Aidan says:

                  The Jew of today has as much genetically and religiously in common with King Solomon as a mestizo brazilian pagan nazi has with the Vikings.

      • Pete says:

        When Leftists smugly proclaim “Jesus was Progressive,” what they mean is that Jesus said we should help the poor, and thus progressive (high) tax rates and government welfare to negroes and single mothers is “what Jesus would do.”

        But Christianity doesn’t work that way. Jesus wants you to reach into YOUR OWN POCKET to help the poor. Leftists vote Democrat – then Democrats raise my taxes to seize MY money, give a little bit to the poor, stuff some into their own pockets, then shovel the rest to weapons contractors and Israel.

        Then the Leftist gets to walk around smugly self-satisfied that he “helped the poor.” It’s completely absurd that you think this is what Jesus would want.

      Progressivism has complete and unbroken continuity of organization, ideology, and personell with State Church of Massachusets.

      The faith continually changed by small degrees, so there is no point in time when you can say “before this Christian, after this post christian.

        • jim says:

          Not only can I see the gay parade in the eyes of the witch burners, so could the Spanish Inquisition.

          The theory was that there were a lot of women worshiping Satan. Likely it was true, for it is surely true now. But what got them worried was that they very rapidly came to doubt that the witch burners were worshiping Christ.

      • Adam says:

        So when considering Christian churches at least in the US, and more or less all of them being converged, do they all to this day have some sort of link to Harvard as far as personnel or is it more of an ideological link? I mean do the Baptist churches in the south and the Lutheran churches in the Midwest all have support currently at Harvard somehow or is it all in the language and the definition of words, and other softer forms of power?

        I guess what I’m trying to work out is the power structure. How does a small town church pastor in the Midwest end up a progressive and speak the words of Harvard and not know it. Obviously it’s in the language in every school. And everything on TV. But it’s deeper than that.

        I think a huge reason all this works, and Christianity keeps moving left is the women problem. Boys are conditioned by their mothers and they never break that conditioning. They never make the leap from emotional reasoning to critical thinking. All their thoughts and words and feelings are authorized my their mothers, and now their wives (and possibly daughters).

        All the pastors I have ever known, and I have had quite a few heated exchanges with several that are family or close friends, they all have an almost allergic reaction to male authority. They will pay lip service to male headship, and all that, but in the end the definition of male authority is what the female feels like it is. I tell them this and they cannot hear me. They absolutely must, must be in agreement with women, more or less at all times.

        • Yul Bornhold says:

          There exist conservative churches in the USA. These are not reactionary.

          These conservatives can tell that contemporary views and treatment of women are very wrong but they can’t discern *how.* So they fall into what Aidan calls sacral feminism. Attacking feminism from the left.

          Is important to emphasize that this isn’t done from malice or hunger for power, as it is with the left, but from a misguided attempt to fight feminism. Dalrock discusses this at length and his view agrees with my experience.

          I have seen some peripheral groups that teach male headship, and really mean it, but they’re all strangely brittle. Have to keep verbally insisting on their authority. Bad frame. Maybe this is purple pill.

          • Kunning Drueger says:

            I think a part of this issue is the HLvM situation that has developed in conservatism IQ, wherein High IQ and Low IQ are opposed to feminism (HIQ for well though out reasons, LIQ out of instinct) but Midwitdom is staunchly Pro Woman. MIQ is merely seeking to be spared the ridicule and persecution from The Voice, it isn’t a deeply held article of faith. And this isn’t restricted to feminism, we saw it with Coronahoax as well.

              In the primeval ages, all hunter-gatherer men were warriors. There were slaves but only as captives, not as a self-replicating class. Agriculture created the peasantry, which is to say a class of men who were not warriors. The peasantry were a deviation from the ancestral norm but they’ve now existed for thousands of years.

              The peasant is easily distinguished from the warrior because he is a natural servant. He survives by bowing his head rather than violently defending his honor. I don’t want to be so judgmental as to call this cowardice but it certainly requires less courage than the warrior.

              The merchant class, the city dweller, the low urbanite, stands a degree lower than the peasant. The peasant can’t survive if displaced from his land. This lends him at least a stand-your-ground bravery. If expelled, the urbanite adapts to another city.

              The defining feature of the cuckservative is cowardice. He constantly cringes before the lash which feels bad, so he copes with bravado about violence towards even less favored outgroup. How many cringey conservative denunciations of “nazis” have we heard? What is the conservative rage against Russia except cope for political impotency? This is a slave class that pretends to be free.

              Of course, we don’t have to live like this, not the peasants nor even the soft urbanites. When a soft pig goes wild, its sons grow tusks, ready to gore.

          • Adam says:

            Yeah that makes sense. I’ve been to a lot of churches, really big really small, Baptist, Lutheran, Evangelical and non-denominational. They all had that same “arguing from the left” based on emotion and instinct way about them as you put it.

            All the guys there are all like you said really good guys, nothing overtly evil about them. They have demons though. They always were threatened by the idea that the husband should speak for his wife, and everything along that line.

            I really think the source of this is boys who were obedient to there mothers before being obedient to their wife, and never thinking there could be any other way. It has to be deeper than just Harvard, even if they are the capital of progressivism. There’s something much deeper and more organic to it.

            Maybe this is implied by Jim and others and I missed it.

            Not all.

            The Presbyterian Church in America has (not to be confused with the mainline Presbyterian Church USA), like our current state religion, complete continuity of organization and personnel going back all the way to the ministers kicked out of the Church of England by Charles the Second except they are not doing now what they were doing then.

            They are still, to my shock and disbelief, preaching strict adherence to the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Westminster Standards. Jim likes the Book of Common Prayer and 39 Articles but I see no institution preaching it. This social technology is buried 6 ft underground.

            What I do see is an old living breathing institution, with its presbytery governance structure allowing for a strategy of continual Exit against entryists (and they likely will need to exit again in the future), preaching the Westminster Confession of Faith which is centuries old working social technology. Yes these Christians are blue-pilled and male headship is brittle by historical standards of Christians, but they are reproducing as others have noted. Men with 3+ kids and 10+ grandchildren is not uncommon.

            To my surprise, Christianity lives as something more than a mustard seed in the old historic Presbyterian Churches of the Southern Anglo, whose faith was not sufficiently suppressed during Reconstruction.

            I present to Jim for this to be the official faith of the Restoration, an old rival of Puritanism which traces its roots to Colonial America and is still preached in beautiful historic and new southern Churches to this day.

            We present this faith to a Caesar, or a Cromwell, or a Napoleon and this necessarily means the restoration will look more like Cromwell’s Protectorate than Charles II’s England. Although not as ideal of having the King back male headship of family, Cromwells men backing male headship is not bad.

              They believe in equality between the sexes. They also strive to believe the Bible according to its plain meaning, which plainly forbids women as pastors. They do not understand the reason for this teaching but they accept it. As such, they’re constantly inventing new theories to justify it but, lacking the real reason, none of these are ever satisfying.

              I recall one protestant pastor teaching that “in the new testament historical context, women were venerated above men because they could give birth. God made the pastors exclusively male to balance out this society wide elevation of females.”

              PCA and other conservative Christian groups originate as splits from the mainstream liberal denominations. As such, they exist in a shrinking sub-cultural bubble, which they are unable to maintain. In these bubbles, there exists significant (but diminishing) pressure against a woman whoring around. Christian colleges are instructive. A large portion of women are sluts. I don’t know the percentage. There is also a significant portion of women who are either virgin or sexually inexperienced.

              How is this possible?

              It probably stems from vestigial and no longer understood social dynamics. If group believes (X) music is ungodly, teen girl won’t go to concert to fuck rockstar. Likewise, if the men sincerely believe they shouldn’t fornicate before marriage, they’re less likely to pressure the girls, who are consequently more likely to grow older intact. Note that these are far from assured measures, hence the prevalence of sluts in such colleges.

              Because these social measures are no longer understood, they’ve been fading for some time. I’ve heard a great many conservative authorities (along with no few “hail, fellow christian” types) rail against the horrible pressure on women to marry young. They believe in “compatibility.”

              Not surprisingly, large segments of the younger generations are failing to marry. Because reasonably high IQ, not reproducing either. I can think of several women in their 30s who would like to have been married long before but is not going to happen. All rather sad.

              Of course, you could say the same and worse of other religions. The Cathedral is pervasive. But Exit is not and cannot and cannot be a useful strategy against entryists. You don’t win by conceding. Nor is antiquity and continuity a safeguard of reaction.

                The Westminster Standards combined with the Bible is old working social technology that allows for reproduction and cooperate/cooperate of the sexes for a potential reaction.

                Early Christianity was not all that impressive when it was out of power. A group of socially ostracized killjoy martyrs. The moment Constantine painted the symbols of Jesus Christ on his shield is when Christianity became mighty impressive indeed.

                Continual Exit is not a long term strategy against entryists, but it is a strategy that can allow organized Christianity to survive until Constantine arrives.

                The PCA is a 2nd split, the 1st originating from the split of churches during the Civil War, for which it never recanted from. I am not aware of any group that can claim roots that old.

They have been fighting against Harvard influences for a long time and have been under continual attack from gay preachers and somehow have survived, likely only possible to the presbytery structure that allows for the real Christians to exit with their property.

              • Reformed says:

                I am a member of a PCA church, and have attended a number of PCA churches over the years, as well as CREC churches (Pastor Doug Wilson’s more conservative offshoot of PCA).

                The PCA churches I’ve attended keep the church calendar and skip all secular holidays, meaning they don’t do father’s day sermons (or mother’s day, or 4th of July, election season, etc.). The belief is that Christianity is the priority in church, so secular holidays/events have no bearing on what is being taught. Occasionally current events will be used to highlight a point being made in a sermon, but the sermon is never based around the holiday/event.

                Keep in mind that PCA churches choose their own type of worship service, so they can vary between “contemporary” and “traditional liturgical”. I don’t have as much experience with the churches that offer “contemporary” services, so my sample size may be biased.

                Again, these folks are generally not red-pilled as we understand it. IMO one of the key factors for the PCA’s success is that we hold that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, which raises the IQ bar for entryism (eg it’s extremely difficult to argue that gay is ok when you can’t twist the Bible any way you want). Churches that can say “the Bible clearly states X is not ok” can stay more-or-less red-pilled, or at least less blue pilled, as evidenced by the number of kids running around these churches.

                • jim says:

                  The bible also says that women should not speak in Church – the Roman Catholics wiggle around this by having women deacons who perform priestly roles while not officially priests and by giving them teaching roles over other people’s sons. Childless postmenopausal women frequently hate other people’s children if they have no nephews and nieces – it is a notorious postmenopausal pathology. Does not happen all the time, but it happens alarmingly often.

                  More importantly the bible says that women should obey their husbands, and if their husbands are badly behaved and give wicked commands, should obey anyway while humbly and respectfully inspiring their husband to do better.

                  It says women should humbly, respectfully, and fearfully obey even bad husbands giving bad commands.

                  This is the critical issue of our time. What does your church say on male headship and female headed families? Does it celebrate single mother for not aborting their children without inquiring why they became single mothers?

                  My wife frequently excuses bad female conduct on the basis that there is a shortage of good men. To which I reply that women do not fuck good men, and if they were willing to fuck good men, would encounter no shortage.

                  Nowhere in the bible does it say that men should love their wives, and wives should love their husbands. It says that men should cherish their wives like their own flesh, and wives should obey and fear their husbands.

                  With great regularity my wife gives me the love and friends shit tests, and with great regularity I easily pass them.

                  wife:
                  “We are not friends”

                  Me:
                  “Men and women can never be friends”

                  Wife:
                  “I love you”

                  Me
                  “That is a good girl”

                  Wife lectures me on some bad and wicked decision

                  Me:
                  “You are my better half, but you should obey me respectfully even when I am wrong”

                  These tests are considerably easier to pass if you are the priest of your household, and speak with divine authority.

                  Does your Church back men in passing these shit tests?

                  If you cannot pass even these standard easy to pass shit tests, your marriage will crumble. And it is tough to pass them without social support. Does your Church provide that support?

                  If your faith fails to give men social support in passing shit tests, that faith will not be able to expand biologically. There will be no children in the pews. Does your Church give men social support in passing shit tests? Are their children in the pews?

                  In order to get married, I had to plough my way through a sea of whores. And I would tell the whores that though I am a very bad man, I am looking for a good woman. If I had told them I was a good man, in addition to that being blatantly untrue, I would have gotten no pussy. Good women do not fuck good men, and then wonder why they encounter a shortage of marriageable men.

                  Apologies for not including commentary on that quote. But I don’t think a woman is obligated to obey in all circumstances like being commanded to Idolatry or to murder in extreme cases.

                  But in everything else she is to obey.

                  As Christians we are to be normatively submissive and obedient to the Civil Authorities:

                  “Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men. Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover–up for evil; live as servants of God.”

                  (1 Peter 2:13–25)

                  Romans 13:1–2,
                  “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.”

                  But when the commands directly contradict God himself who made evident to us the Divine Law(No including the ceremonial and sacrificial law fulfilled in Christ Jesus) Then we must obey God rather than Men:

                  “28“We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name,” he said. “Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us responsible for this man’s blood.” 29But Peter and the other apostles replied, “We must obey God rather than men. ”

                  (Acts 5:28-29)

                  Women speaking in church – zero. Across multiple churches.

                  Women in leadership – zero. No women pastors, elders, or deacons.

                  Male headship – this is where the pastors can get wiggly, depending on the pastor. Again, due to the belief in the inerrancy of Scripture, all of them will agree the father is the head of the household and that wives should obey the husband.

                  Some of them – I’ve consistently seen this with Boomer pastors – will immediately follow that up with some version of “but the Bible also commands the husband to love the wife, and the husband shouldn’t be a tyrant”. They are clearly nervous about potential blowback.

                  Younger pastors seem more immune to this. I was a member at a smaller, blue-collar-ish church (~75 people), with a Gen X pastor, and he had no qualms about male headship and wifely obedience. Neither did the congregation. That pastor had several kids and a very sweet, submissive wife.

                  My current church is much larger and very white collar, ie filled with members who have gone through pozzed “higher education”. The pastors definitely use a softer tone than the small church pastor, but when pressed, will stick by their guns, albeit with varying levels of discomfort.

                  Interestingly, the only one who doesn’t seem uncomfortable with stating the Biblical position plainly also is the only one who works out. High-testosterone truly has a spiritual element to it.

                  A side note, something I’ve noticed about the purple pilled pastors especially. People don’t take risks with scarce resources. These men don’t take risks with their wives. Their behavior towards their wives is like how a mother protects her children (overbearing compassion, failure to hold them accountable).

                  Instead of becoming the wife’s daddy they become their mother.

                  Absolutely true. I’ve seen them muddy the water so much the audience ends up with no idea what they meant. I haven’t seen outright inversion at a PCA church (yet).

                  So they may not be actively helping fathers, but they don’t seem to be actively antagonistic either. My guess is that allows fathers enough leeway to manage their families.

                  Opinions aside, the results speak for themselves: I’ve attended several PCA churches with TFRs well above 2.1 and virtually no divorce. Something is working. It’s not ideal, but I haven’t found a better option, and it may last long enough to be in place for the next Restoration.

              Protestantism has always and necessarily borne the seed of revolution. “Every man a priest” strikes at the heart of reaction, which dictates that religion must be channeled constructively.

              To illustrate the point, will excerpt from the great Puritan epic, Paradise Lost:

              “Long time in peace by Families and Tribes
              Under paternal rule; till one shall rise
              Of proud ambitious heart, who not content
              With fair equalitie, fraternal state,
              Will arrogate Dominion undeserv’d
              Over his brethren, and quite dispossess
              Concord and law of Nature from the Earth,
              Hunting (and Men not Beasts shall be his game)
              With Warr and hostile snare such as refuse
              Subjection to his Empire tyrannous:”

              Note how John Milton assumes families, tribes and paternal rule. Decidedly not feminist. However, he argues for equality and a fraternal state; rejecting kingship and more generally hierarchical authority. We all know how well such equality and brotherhood works in practice.

              That is the ancestor of the PCA. Yes, it was red pilled but its not anymore because Protestantism is unstable. One’s own conscience and reason as highest authority has (and will inevitably) corrupt the religion.

              Even in the early centuries of the Reformation, there were deranged sects like the Levellers, explicitly calling for the equality of women, celibates like the Shakers and wretched pacifists like the Quakers.

              Christianity isn’t a religion that *works* without formal organizational claim to authority. Could make a religious argument to this effect as well. Perhaps another time.

              • Pooch says:

                That is the ancestor of the PCA.

                Puritanism was not an ancestor to PCA but a peer. Both derive from Calvinism. The problem with the American Puritans were they were Congregationalist and thus had no official hierarchy.

                Presbyterianism is hierarchy of assemblies instead of bishops. The General Assembly meets to vote on issues. This is what Cromwell attempted to implement into the Church of England during his rule.

                • Yul Bornhold says:

                  Yes, assemblies. The problem is that Presbyterianism has no theological *authority* for condemning other beliefs. All they can say is “We’re a bunch of guys and we don’t like what you’re doing.” And they can quit. Now the pope can say “I’m appointed by God to rule. You must do what I say.”

                  You, a reactionary, don’t actually believe that any particular Church has been authorized by the Creator of the universe. You’ve just observed that some beliefs undermine a civilization whereas others strengthen it. So you say to yourself “Come the restoration, it state authority can support the beliefs that foster civilization.”

                  That’s true to a degree but remember the place of women. Male authority, backed by God, keeps men in line far better than simple male force alone.

                  In the same way, a Church, backed by God, is far stronger than a Church that exists as consensus of smart people. (In fact, you undermine the consensus of smart people/assemblies when the state starts enforcing certain interpretations as correct.)

                • Adam says:

                  You can absolutely say as a reactionary that your faith is backed by God, or Gnon, or the creator of the universe.

                  Pope had a point.

                  The job of the priesthood is to construct consensus. You want everyone playing by the same rules, and you need to know what the rules are.

                  So, at some point you need one guy who authoritatively says what the consensus is.

                  Reading the Bible can cause trouble. It is deliberately full of contradictions. Often the same writer in the same book of the Bible will contradict himself. And people will snatch one clause out of context, out of the context of all the other things that writer said and out of the context of the bible, grab one end of a contradiction and run with it, throwing the rest of the Bible in the ditch.

                  I don’t think the laity should be reading the Bible for themselves without mortal guidance from authority. But right now there is no real alternative, because all organized religion has to a greater or lesser extent been corrupted by state sponsored enemy entryism, though Russian Orthodoxy is recovering behind Putin’s nukes.

                  But obviously you don’t want that mortal to have unlimited power. The Roman Catholic Church, which was the legitimate Church of Rome, schismed from Orthodoxy because the Bishop of Rome coveted what was Caesar’s, and refused to act collegially. He then issued a whole bunch of heresies, the central heresy being apostolic succession from CaesarPeter.

                  The Protestant reformers went too far in rejecting Bishops and apostolic succession. They were right that the Pope does not have apostolic succession from Peter. Peter does not have apostolic succession from Peter, because when the heat came down, he abandoned his post and went underground. In the days of apostles, James the Just, brother of Jesus was head of the Church of Jerusalem, because Peter pulled a disappearing act. James the Just was martyred with his wife at his post, and eventually they found Peter and martyred him also.

                  From the days of the apostles to present day Orthodoxy, the Church has operated with collegial authority, no a single authoritative leader with divine appointment.

                  The Pope was just the Bishop of Rome, and rest of the Roman Church can fire him. If we had a half plausibly Christian Caesar in Rome, Caesar can fire him, as Solomon killed Ahimelech, fired Abiathar, and appointed Zadok. The Church of Rome was pre-eminent only because Caesar resided in Rome. When Caesar moved to Constantinople, ceased to be pre-eminent.

                  Apostolic succession is Biblically attested. Anyone with apostolic succession can grant someone else apostolic succession, and the Lord can grant apostolic succession himself directly, as he did with Saint Paul. Kind of like the old feudal system where any knight can make someone else a knight. Apostolic succession is, like feudalism, a somewhat anarchic system of authority, and the papal claim that it is a completely centralized and divine ordained system of authority is unambiguously heretical. But so is the extreme protestant position of no apostolic succession and no centralized mortal authority heretical. They went much too far, abandoning the central job that priests should be performing.

                  Apostolic succession is attested in the Bible as a divine ordained system of authority. But, like feudalism, a distinctly anarchic system of authority.

                  Just noted this comment and its not correct, Cromwell was an “independent” (congregationalist).

                  You seem to have too high a view of the Presbyterians, Boston and Mass Bay was run by Presbyterian control freaks not congregationalist seperatists. If you want to look at bad things done by the Puritan groups here is as follows.

                  Presbyterians: Started the war in both Scotland (originally) and England. Responsible for 95% of the moral busybodiness of Puritanism (which is why I attribute modern progressivism more to them). These people are very interested in making sure everyone around them lives up to their standards in exacting detail… While the extremely radical Diggers and Fifth Monarchists sects were not Presbyterians the sect that founded Boston and Harvard definitely were.

                  Independents: Won the war against Charles the Presbyterians started. Eventually forced the execution of Charles (the Presbyterians kept balking at this despite the fact it was clear Charles would not ever surrender for real). Not especially interested in the moral life of people who weren’t the elect unless they were part of some group that threatened them (the brief rule of the Major Generals was Cromwell making a concession to Presbyterians that was revoked as soon as it became clear how unpopular it was). This group founded Plymouth not Boston… Plymouth/Cape Cod are a more easygoing and fun loving kind of people to this day.

                  The Diggers and Fifth Monarchists were not busybodies, because out of power and in great danger of forcible repression, which forcible repression Cromwell eventually applied. But they had immense and alarming potential to become extremely lethal Khmer Rouge style busybodies, particularly the Fifth Monarchists.

                  Cromwell’s Church of England during the Commonwealth was a Presbyterian hierarchy structure, not Congregationalist.

                  The radical Puritan Congregationalists fled to America and started the Massachusetts Bay Colony with a State Church of Congregationalism.

                  The American Presbyterians founded Princeton and were viewed as an ally but also somewhat of a rival by the Congregationalists who founded Harvard and Yale.

                  They tried to cooperate during the “Plan of Union of 1801” but eventually tensions caused the plan to collapse as the Congregationalists were becoming too radically left wing. Presbyterians also were being entryed by leftists causing divisions between “Old School” and “New School” Presbyterianism.

                  The “Old School” Presbyterians eventually split during the Civil War and the “New School” Northern Presbyterians became consumed by Harvard.

                  And thus began the War of Aggression by Northern Heretics against the Christian South.

                  Read about the Westminster Assembly. Parliament eventually adopted a presbyterian form of church government after the Westminster Assembly.

                  In July 1647, the New Model Army invaded London and conservative members of Parliament were forced out. Parliament passed an ordinance establishing religious tolerance and ensuring that the Assembly’s vision of a national, compulsory presbyterian church would never come to fruition.[72] In London, where support for presbyterianism was greatest, presbyteries were established in only sixty-four of 108 city parishes, and regional presbyterian classes were only formed in fourteen of England’s forty counties. A planned national general assembly never met.[73] Many presbyterians did, however, establish voluntary presbyteries in what was a de facto free church situation until the Restoration in 1660, when a compulsory episcopal system was reinstated.

                  Might only makes right when might is a stationary bandit. The incapacity for cohesive action causes the Cathedral to act more like mobile bandits, as was hilariously revealed in the Haiti earthquake relief effort. A bunch of Harvard PhDs equipped with billions of dollars of earthquake relief money grabbed power from the midwit mulatto thugs running the place, and proceeded to do immensely more damage and create immensely more suffering than the earthquake had, because the midwit mulatto thugs were stationary bandits, while the Harvard PhDs were carryon baggers.

                  Harvard increasingly lacks might, because the holiness spiral makes it increasingly incapable of coherent collective action – which declining capacity for collective action will likely be revealed when they get around to removing and replacing Biden, or attempt to intervene directly on the borders of Russia.

                  Shaniqua is running their weapons engineers, and Rachel Levine is running their military.

                  Harvard is a paper tiger, and sooner or later, in response the chaos and weakness, Caesar is going to act. I hope and pray sooner, because the later he acts, the more blood will have been spilled, and the more blood will need to be spilled for a stationary bandit to quell the ever more radical faith.

                  Scripture says that Kings are divinely appointed, and in this sense does say that might makes right, but the relevant scriptures presuppose agreement on who the King is, and that that agreement is unlikely to change unexpectedly and unpredictably. In the language of the Dark Enlightenment, stationary bandits are divinely appointed and deserve obedience – but only if they successfully make themselves sufficiently stationary.

                  The situation frequently arises, as with Constantine, when the question is which Caesar and which priesthood of which Caesar deserves obedience. Constantine claimed, and perhaps had, divine command to act in the name of the Lord at a time when there were far too many Caesars. In acting, he rejected the authority of the official priesthood of the walking dead official zombie religion that infested his army.

                  In such a situation, which has arisen many times in the past, and is likely to arise soon again in the future, the Dark Enlightenment wisdom to give obedience to the Caesar whose priesthood is likely to produce and maintain consensus on the bandit being sufficiently stationary, and the Christian faith is to give obedience to the Caesar whose claim to divine authority is most plausible, or least implausible.

                  The Roman Catholic position on Apostolic Succession from Peter is unambiguously heretical, and the Roman Catholic Church came up with it when the Pope was commanding armies in the field, coveting what was Caesar’s, and because coveting Kingdoms, not rectories, needed strong centralized authority.

                  The earthly job of the priesthood is forming consensus on the implementation of social technology. This requires that authority be substantially distributed. But not distributed to all believers.

                  The position of most protestant groups, no apostolic succession at all, is also heretical. New Testament position is hierarchy, authority, but collegial authority. A relatively small number of bishops with considerable authority, decisions by consensus, top leader is merely the authoritative voice of the consensus, and if he finds he has no consensus, shuts up. Hiearachical and authoritarian in the way feudalism was hierarchical and authoritarian, not hierarchical and authoritarian the way an army is hierarchical and authoritarian, or even the way a well run corporation is hierarchical and authoritarian.

                  The Church depicted in the New Testament had Bishops. It had a leader, but it did not have a Pope. The leader was merely the voice of the consensus, not the CEO. And this is in fact how a priesthood needs to operate.

                  The monarch has to be viewed as God’s representative on earth, the throne gives power to the altar and the altar sanctifies the throne. As such the high priests must be accountable to God’s representative the monarch… but theology should be defined heavily by well known tradition so that any monarch who says that Jesus ordained drag queen story hour can be deemed a madman who has forfeited the trust placed in him by God…

                  So I guess theological consensus can be appealed to, but it must be consensus based on ancient writing of well accepted men. Trying to make new consensus… needs to be treated as entryism.

                • Pooch says:

                  Rather lengthy scriptural basis for Presbyterian from of church government:

                  First, rule by elders alone is found in the Bible. Of course, after Christ’s resurrection and His ascension shortly after Pentecost (Acts chapters 1 & 2), the Apostles ruled. The Apostle Paul took it upon himself to declare what the will of Christ was for the church. In Ephesians 4:11& 12 he says, “He (Christ) gave (to the church) some as apostles, some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ.” These were the gifted men that Jesus raised up to build the New Testament Church (which was the continuing of Israel which was the Old Testament “Church”).

                  Now we know that somewhere near the end of the first century all of the apostles were dead. During the early years of the Church, however, while the New Testament was in the process of formation, prophets existed, through whom Jesus sent specific messages to His Church. All of the apostles had the prophetic gift, but some who were not apostles also wrote under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Such men included Mark, Luke, James and Jude the brothers of our Lord, and the writer of Hebrews. (Incidentally, the last—contrary to the claim of the King James Version—probably was not Paul. Earlier New Testament manuscripts discovered since the Reformation do not ascribe authorship to Paul.) The important point is that whoever may have been the Holy Spirit’s instrument in writing the New Testament was either an apostle or wrote under apostolic oversight and approval.

                  Now Paul wrote the Pastoral Epistles which were late in his life. In 1 Timothy 3:1-7 he set forth the qualifications and functions of the office of “bishop.” He does the same in Titus 1:5-9, where he gives rules for Titus to use in choosing “elders” in Crete.

                  It’s interesting that Paul doesn’t use “elders” but “bishops” in 1 Timothy, but in Titus, he begins with “elders” in verse 5 and in verse 7 switches to “bishop” or “overseer” (depending on how the Greek word “episcopos” is translated in varying English versions).

                  It is clear that the same office is in view in both chapters, 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1. “Elder” speaks of the maturity of the man gifted to rule. “Bishop” (or “Overseer”) speaks of his function. There is no contradiction here. In American parlance, we sometimes refer to our president as that, again as “chief executive”, yet again as “commander-in-chief,” But it’s one man and one office that he holds.

                  Another matter needs to be considered concerning office in the early church, “pastors and teachers” (Eph. 4:11). It’s one office. A pastor is a “shepherd of the flock of God” (cf. John 10:11-15).

                  All elders need to be highly qualified and to know the Bible in order to honor Christ in their office. They must know the Scriptures so as to rule righteously. Some elders, however, are called to teach or preach the Word. In the OPC we call them “ministers” or “teaching elders.” The distinction is clearly set forth in 1 Timothy 5:17. (Incidentally, the “double honor” in that verse undoubtedly means honor in the general sense—as in “honorable in all things”—but also has to do with “honorarium”—meaning pay for their labors.)

                  That’s why ministers are required to meet the highest standard of biblical education. One of my seminary professors said to us: “Ministers need to know everything about the theology and something about everything else.” I’ve been ordained for 64 years. I think I qualify for general knowledge, but I’m still striving for total biblical knowledge. I’m sure I fall short here and there, but I want to be a learner to my dying day! And, in my understanding of the Bible, ministers and elders are “pastors” or “shepherds,” using the biblical model (see Acts 20:17 and 28 and 1 Pet. 5:1 & 2).

                  Now, in true Presbyterian churches, all rule is by elders (including ministers or “teaching elders” and non-teaching elders). The only higher office in the church today is that of Head of the Church, held by Jesus Christ. And under the teachers and elders (the “Sessions” of the churches) are the members, including teachers and elders. A ruling elder is a member of the local church; a minister is a member of a Presbytery (which oversee the lives of churches in a given geographical area) and sometimes also a member of a local church.

                  As a minister I have been a member of many “Sessions,” that is, ruling over the life of the local church, administering according to the Bible, which is the Word of God. I’ve also sat as a member of many Presbyteries. In addition, I have been a member of many annual General Assemblies.

                  Each of these—Session, Presbytery, and General Assembly—is a “court” of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. Matters that cannot be dealt with and resolved by a Session can go for advice or appeal to the Presbytery to which the particular church belongs. Similarly, matters not resolved, or situations where advice may have been improperly given, come to the General Assembly. It’s something like our USA system of courts, though less complicated and (I hope) more just and righteous.

                  Finally, we have seen that Presbyterians do not adopt the Episcopal model of government, because in the New Testament “bishop” and “elder” refer to the same office rather than one being over the other.

                  This exegesis seems obviously false.

                  Bishop is the higher office, Deacon is the lower office. The apostles appointed seven deacons, and Paul instructed the churches of various cities, or the particular leader of the Church he was writing to, to appoint some more Bishops and Deacons. Not seeing any elders. Where are these elders in the New Testament?

                  The epistle to Titus implies Paul, with apostleship direct from the risen Christ, appoints Titus, and Titus appoints Bishops, which seems fairly hierarchical. We see plenty of evidence that the leaders operate by consensus, but also plenty of evidence for central authority.

                  The centralization imagined by the Roman Catholic Church is an obvious fiction, but the decentralization imagined by the Presbyterians also a obvious fiction.

                  The Roman Catholic exegesis artificially and implausibly projects earthly absolute monarchy onto the New Testament, while the Presbyterian exegesis artificially and implausibly projects the earthly Republic onto the New Testament.

                  The feudal lords of the Holy Roman Empire ultimately answered to the Emperor as the final authority. What you describe sounds like monarchy albeit with better parliamentary consensus. How is it not a monarchy? Is the “leader” of your system not a monarch?

                • jim says:

                  Monarchs are never absolute in practice, and attempts at absolutism fail disastrously. They are seldom absolute even in official theory and official reality, and the sovereign of the Holy Roman Empire had very limited power in theory, and even less in practice.

                  You need a high priest, but in matters pertaining to this world, he is subject to the sovereign of his nation, and his authority over the Church is rather more dependent on consensus than the authority of sovereign of the holy Roman Empire was. The holy Roman Emperor was elected for life or good conduct by the electors of the Holy Roman Empire, while simultaneously being a hereditary office.

                  The feudal lords of the Holy Roman empire answered to the Emperor as the final authority, but the emperor was (theoretically) elected, and in practice and theory the feudal lords had broad authority i which the emperor was not supposed to interfere, and was frequently unable to interfere with even when he theoretically had the right to do so.

                  As I said, feudal, not absolutist. Feudalism is hierarchy mitigated by orderly and disorderly anarchy, with a rather small touch of absolutism.

We’re studying the Book of Isaiah now, and he often compares those times to modern America. Isaiah’s mission was to warn the Israelites of GOD’s wrath to come if they did not repent. He was told by GOD that they would be destroyed, but that his mission was to preach to a Remnant of the faithful that would rebuild.

              Conservative Presbyterianism tempts disaffected men with the promise of traditional Christianity but upon closer examination is no more or less converged than any other religious group in the West.

              This impression arises from the reputation of Reformed thinkers and theologians. R.J. Rushdoony was the inspiration behind the advent of the American homeschooling movement and Robert Lewis Dabney is perhaps the most influential American reactionary thinker pre-1945, although both the PCA and OPA have repudiated both theologians’ political beliefs.

              Regarding the dozens of Presbyterian and Reformed groups in North America, most differ on petty theological minutia but can be divided into the liberal and conservative factions, PCUSA and PCA the largest denominations of both groups respectively.

              Conservative Reformed Protestants in my experience follow the letter of the law inherited by their spiritual heirs without adhering to the spirit of the law intended by those men. They “homeschool” but school-at-home. Their seminaries are no more or less immune to being converged. Some years back I attended a PCA church service with a friend; the pastor with six children, one of them with down syndrome, broadcasted a video of a single mother proudly being sustained by church money. Neither him nor any other of his friends viewed promoting single motherhood as a problem, and the priest rebuked me after conveying my grievances.

              This is not indented to antagonize, rather to dispel illusions. One should go to church because he believes in the faith, not because he wants something, for attending of the latter reason is bound to lead to disappointment.

                I don’t claim to be an expert, only to analyze. If members of the PCA are reproducing for multiple generations then this certainly reflects less convergence than other groups, many who are dying out as their churches turn to museums.

                Petty theological minutia that is important and significant. This is how Harvard has inverted Christianity over the process of several centuries with its mission to establish “God’s Kingdom on Earth” chucking all the petty theological minutia that was standing in the way of that.

                There is only denomination that claims strict adherence to the original Westminster Standard of the 17th century (I am not sure how flexible they are on that in practice officially) and that is the PCA who split off from the PC of the South who split from the North during the Civil War. Only the Southern Baptists can claim descent from pre-Civil War Christianity.

                All others are splits of rather recent leftism.

                Conservative Reformed Protestants in my experience follow the letter of the law inherited by their spiritual heirs without adhering to the spirit of the law intended by those men. They “homeschool” but school-at-home. Their seminaries are no more or less immune to being converged.

                The seminaries have absolutely been the vector of attack by progressive entryists. The old style Presbyterians have complained about this for a long time and likely is a coup-complete problem.

                The PCA is under attack by entryists as are all actual Christian churches to the extent that they exist. Likely 30-40% of PCA churches are infilitrated by leftist preachers is some way or another, but the actual Christians still hold a majority as we’ve seen at the General Assembly where numorous leftist Overtures were voted down. When the leftists get to 50% of voting power the old style actual Christian Presbyterians will split off again.

                This is not indented to antagonize, rather to dispel illusions.

                  Untrue. Harvard from its founding was a religious school for ministers. Harvard attacked small minutia of theology gradually starting with the five points of Calvinism, then the divinity of Christ, then sections of the bible, then the entire bible, and finally god himself.

                  Disagreements over theological minutia is why there are hundreds of Protestant denominations each with their own version of Christianity.

                  All are derived from the leftism of Harvard at some year with an attempt to freeze the leftism of Harvard at some year. The PCA seems to be the oldest which traces its leftism to Cromwell and the Westminster Standards of 1649.

                  I suppose SBC can also claim the Baptist London Standard of 1689, but hard to figure how many Baptist Churches are actually using that given the extent of rampant convergence of the SBC.

                  Jim proposes the Book of Common Prayer of 1662 but I see no denomination using it in existence so might as well be as be dead and buried. The Westminster Standard lives.

                  What church? This is the million dollar question. It needs to be an organized institution to be workable. Constantine started quickly integrating the Bishops into the state bureaucracy upon his victory, who acted essentially as the Supreme Court.

                  The Pope wanted what was Caesar’s and thus adopted the filioque and altered the Creed as a means of justifying his power grab and schism. The German princes wanted an end to the conflict with the Papacy and thus sheltered and patronized Luther. The Whigs wanted power over the King and thus proclaimed that the adulterous Queen Caroline was mistreated by George IV.

                  Theology has simplified enormously, now that we no longer have vast numbers of very clever people trying to weasel their way through shill and entryist tests that were intended to keep enemies out of the state religion.

                  Who today remembers the differences between all these versions of Christianity?

                  Hitler famously asked “who today remembers the Armenians?” You might suspect that when we get within smelling difference of power, all this dusty and forgotten theology is going to be suddenly remembered. But who today does remember the Armenians?

                  The only issue that matters today is sex, marriage, and family, of which the gay parade and men in women’s sports is a synecdoche. Successful reproduction requires acknowledgement of the sexual and reproductive differences between men and women, and the resulting very different roles they play in work, marriage, sex, reproduction and family.

                  And any Church that takes these differences seriously is going to get wacoed.

                  It is not where Churches stand on the precession of the holy spirit that matters, but where they stand on marriage and the female role. Does anyone today understand what precession of the holy spirit is?

                  Does Christ have two natures and one substance, or was that two substances and one nature? Whatever. I am pretty sure that no one ever knew what the divine substance and divine nature was, and they have forgotten how to pretend that they knew.

                  When the Protestants tore down the fine web of Christian tradition they ended up with a religion a hundred times dumber and more superstitious than the one they tried to “reform”.

                  Catholicism and Orthodoxy promise the existence of a supernatural world in addition to the natural one. Protestantism instead regards the supernatural as the substratum of the world, not an extension of it. You are a Protestant, i.e. you want people to accept natural life on supernatural grounds. But this is stupid. X Y and Z facts about women and marriage are known from experience and nature, not “the Bible” and “Christ”.

                  The Roman Catholic Church was in clear violation of Christianity and Christian tradition.

                  When Rome schismed from orthodoxy, it was because the Pope coveted Kingdoms, not rectories. The Pope coveted what was Ceasar’s and prostituted religion to political and military objectives.

                  The facts on the ground in the US right now are that all denominations are officially given over to leftism in one or more ways, but that certain congregations within the “conservative” churches are active coalescence sites for based men. What has been said about the LCMS and the offshoots of the Southern Presbyterians is 100% accurate on both sides. I have personally been involved with very based congregations that exist as remnants within those groups, as well as the CREC, southern Baptist, trad catholics, several Eastern churches, etc. My favorite (not yet mentioned here) is within the Continuing Anglican churches (those who celebrate the feast day of Charles, king and Martyr). As an aside, Cromwell was so holy he outlawed Christmas, so screw that guy. I say that partially out of love – half my children were baptized in a based PCA church. I will always be one of them on some level and I love you frowning calvinists like brothers.

                  One cannot find these congregations using the church website. They are like speakeasies. But they are real and they are everywhere. These are the only places to find wives and husbands for your children.

                  It’s funny, and is observable in this thread: anyone like us who finds himself in one of these groups points to its denominational particulars as the cause of its preservation, ignoring the (much larger) progressive mainstream in the same tradition. But in my experience in the American churches, which is unusually broad, every tradition has a similar distribution. And the remnants of the several Christian traditions are all more like one another than each is like it’s progressive mainstream.

                  In short, the “liberal” branches are all deserts. No life there. The “conservative” branches are deserts with occasional lush oases. The man in one of these assumes there are no others because they are far apart. But he is incorrect. And this should give the Christian raising Godly seed much hope. Go find one and prosper.

                  These are times of rapid change. The arc of the enlightenment is over, and the church is being reconfigured for the next thing, whatever that is. The church of Christ is a robust thing, and can be tamped down to nearly nothing, but embers remain all over under all the ash.

                  American Whites are not a monolith. There are English, Scottish, German, Irish, French, Italian, Polish, Czech, Russian, Ukrainian, Swedish, Norwegian, Greek etc. White Americans with their own histories and cultures. In the United States, there are more Lutherans and Catholics than Calvinists. The Early Church incorporated all of the various ethnic groups of the Roman Empire into the faith, so should the Church of the future. The deciding factor with regards to adopting Christianity is which church possesses spiritual descent from the early Christians and the Imperium of Rome and gave us Constantine, not an ethnic understanding of the Federal Vision.

                  Pandering to elites never works because it demonstrates weakness and reveals the lower status of the panderer. The way one converts people to a faith is by being as hardline as possible in one beliefs and by demonstrating it through action. Orthodox Christianity works because the faith descends from the Early Church of the Apostles, is spiritually contiguous with Christianity as it has been for thousands of years without theological evolution of doctrine, and has the heritage of Constantine and Vladimir, Byzantium and Third Rome.

                  Elite Presbyterians, like elite Jews, do not believe any more in Presbyterianism than elite Jews believe in Judaism. There is next to no difference between mainline Episcopalianism and mainline Presbyterianism. If a faith is to be revived men must believe in it, otherwise we find ourselves with the problem that the later Caesars had with an ineffectual dead state religion.

                  Constantine and most of his army including generals were Pagans who adopted Christianity because of a vision of the Christian God. Our elite support will come from our Progressive elite, from those disaffected with our current state religion who want something better.

          Among the Lutherans–the Missouri Synod did not allow women to vote in congregational meetings until the 70s. The Wisconsin Synod, a smaller cousin, still does not allow women to vote. Admittedly what you describe here you will still find among pastors in both synods, but particularly among the younger black shirt and round-collar wearing Missouri Synod pastors there is an understanding that women need to be subject to their husbands. I think the Missouri Synod now also has the highest birthrate in any church in America because so many of their younger pastors have rejected contraception and it is not uncommon to see young Missouri Synod pastors with 6, 7, and 8 kids. Or more.

          • Adam says:

            Among the pastors that I know, and men that I know that have many kids (where I grew up families with 5-15 kids or more are very common) they have a couple of things going for them that most do not. They are in a rural setting (lack of options, lack of temptation). Allergic reaction to outsiders. The men all speak as one. And childbirth and children = holiness.

            My neighbors growing up had 18 kids. In a town of 2000 people there had to be several dozen or more families with over 15 kids. These are strict church families, Apostolic Lutheran mostly (or similarly Lutheran). Daughters can’t wear makeup, kids can’t go to many school functions, TV is a sin, pretty much everything is a sin in modern life.

            But the biggest thing especially with the women is, the more kids you have the holier you are. It’s a status thing. The guys are pretty manly because it’s a rural area, but not the caricature of “alpha” that Heartiste paints, or Jim or myself even. But they all stand as one and if you were not born into those churches and families, you are not welcome.

            I wouldn’t say any of the men have a whole lot of power in the marriage though. The wives rule from the bottom. They can’t restrain their wives or daughters if they go bad any more than anyone else. They just do a better job of preventing it, due to the isolation of the community and churches, and their lifestyles.

                I think they can, or they will be able to again. Conservative Presbyterians and Lutherans and probably others have been kneecapped by the concessions made to feminism in the 20th century, but the younger pastors are moving in the other direction, and the tradition, as recently as the early 20th century, was firmly anti-feminist. About 10 years ago R. C. Sproul’s son put out a video or something called “The Monstrous Regiment of Women” referencing John Knox’s critique of Elizabeth’s reign as anti-scriptural. And the basic point of the video was that women should not rule in the church or home. Yes it will take time, but you are already seeing in my church a growing percentage of pastors who would feel at home with everything or most everything that is said about women on this blog.

                  I can’t help but notice there is also a masculinity crisis in the churches. Yes these men are reproducing but a lot of them just look soft and weak.

                  To command your woman you must feel it in your bones that it is your masculine right as a man to rule over her. Unconfidently ruling her because even if the church is teaching it is not going to cut it. Women are fined tuned to obstruct shit test against male weakness.

                  It’s interesting that the early Christian authors like Tertullian put emphasis on beards as a masculine marker for Christian men to contrast against the freshly shaven faces of the faggot Romans. Paul I believe also writes that long hair for men is forbidden because too effeminate.

        • Pete says:

          Because according to US law, a man is only part of his family as long as the woman says he is. The wife can kick the husband out, take his kids and seize his paycheck any time she feels like it. And the police will back her up with guns.

          Whatever “male authority” a church preaches only lasts as long as the wife allows it to last.

        • Pooch says:

          I guess what I’m trying to work out is the power structure. How does a small town church pastor in the Midwest end up a progressive and speak the words of Harvard and not know it. Obviously it’s in the language in every school. And everything on TV. But it’s deeper than that.

          The seminaries have always been the point of progressive entryist attack against conservative churches going back to the founding of Harvard itself as a seminary.

          I’d imagine any seminary teaching biblical male authority to its pastors would come under serious attack by the state.

          • Adam says:

            I think there are Lutheran seminary’s that teach male authority, I have a friend that went through one not long ago. He preaches male authority in marriage. Problem is his definition is going to be the same as his wife’s definition, and his mothers and his sister’s definition. It’s in name only.

            And at no point would he support a man disciplining his wife it holding her accountable. If your wife is behaving badly, obviously you did something to make her behave that way.

        Father Wiseman correctly calls out nominalism.

        But the key pathology of nominalism is that nothing is real, and one can therefore socially construct reality. And here we are. Reality is being socially reconstructed to immanentize the eschaton. So women can perform male roles and men can perform female roles, and Harvard/Oxbridge graduates Shaniqua as expert in administering engineers.

        In order to effectively denounce nominalism, one has to appeal to natural kinds. And, in particular and especially, those natural kinds that make a huge difference to survival and reproduction – sex and race differences.

        Ironically furries are more down to earth than trannies. I don’t like either, and they are quite similar, plus pretty much all of them are extreme left and support trannies. It seems several of the vaccine scientists were furries.

        However, they are still more self aware and less self-righteous about it. I think it’s just too outlandish for any normie to take it seriously the way trannies are taken. Even the Cathedral cannot spin this any other way. They’d just be laughed at. Honestly I’d like to see them try.

            It’s just not an idea I can find myself taking seriously as a threat, maybe I’m wrong, but I definitely can’t see it being *next*.

            Furries themselves, however, are dangerous radical leftists. They do plenty of damage outside of their animalistic delusions. And worse, they seem to be suspiciously wealthy, at least a significant number among them are.
            As I mentioned a few of them claimed to be vaccine scientists on twitter, and that research at all levels is full of their kind. Since it’s still an underground thing, I wonder how many in the power structure belong to this group.

  33. Basil says:

    The events related to the coronovirus and this war convinced me of Lukashenko’s political wisdom. Remaining under the umbrella of Russia, do not cripple Belarusians with vaccination and do not send Belarusians to war. Orban is also great. If any of them had been in Putin’s place, Russia would have won.

    • Varna says:

      They could have peaked on their current scale. A country 14 times the population and constantly fending off attempts to destroy it on a million levels could be above their competence and skill. Putin barely manages to pull it off.

      India and China are currently pulling it off because neither are yet the officially designated devil. If either of them have to endure at least couple of decades of focused attempts to be destroyed let’s see how good they are at it.

      Erdogan is also at his competence ceiling. Turkey has the population of Germany, and also is officially under the NATO umbrella like Hungary. If Erdogan had been a separate power like Iraq, Libya, or Iran, also designated a devil for extermination, we’d see if Erdogan has what it takes to survive.

      Now, if Lukashenko is Russia’s minister of agriculture and industry, Orban minister of education and culture, Erdogan and Modi on the security council by Medvedev’s side, and Xi on the strategic planning side, with Putin channeling their input into policy, then we’d have some fancy shit to witness.

      Ramzan Kadyrov is my favorite to throw Globohomo off a rooftop and become Emperor of the World.

      • Varna says:

        BTW, just now with covfefe, I realized that at least part of Russia’s forces in the Ukraine are not the military proper but the National Guard. They fought the Chechen wars mostly with the National Guard as well, it being “an internal affair”.

        During the Chechen wars the Russian National Guard was called The MVD forces, but today are RosGvardia.

        Here we have recent news of the National Guard taking out guerillas.
        https://www.1tv.ru/news/2022-04-04/425564-spetsnaz_rosgvardii_unichtozhil_ukrainskuyu_diversionnuyu_gruppu_v_kievskoy_oblasti

        Here on the Chechen TV we have explicitly news about “the Chechen National Guard” doing this and that.
        https://grozny.tv/news/army/47274

        Which makes sense. Obviously (in hindsight) when Kadyrov has “his troops” they cannot actually be “his” if they are part of the federal army. They can be “his” if they are part of the state-level army, i.e. the National Guard.

        And now that I’ve figured this out I go and check and the bloody Wikipedia has also figured it out. Sometimes I’m so slow.
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Guard_of_Russia#2022_invasion_of_Ukraine

        And since this isn’t ‘an invasion’, but rather ‘a special policing operation’, at least half the time we see in the news ‘the Russian army did this or that’, in reality it’s ‘the Russian National Guard did this or that’. Not least of all the taking over of nuclear plants.

        If I had to guess, it goes like this:
        1) The federal army proper goes in with tanks, planes, choppers, and rockets.
        2) On its heels comes the National Guard to clean up resistance and set up functioning infrastructure
        3) Half the ‘commando raids’ are done by the army paratrooper commandos
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_Airborne_Forces
        and the other half by National Guard SWAT
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spetsnaz#National_Guard_of_Russia

        Of which there are only 16 units, out of 84 units in 84 Russian Federation member states, one of these 16 National Guard Spesnaz being the Chechen unit.

        I feel like I’m finally starting to get a basic grasp on who is doing what.

        The Ukraine also has a 60K National Guard which is also taking part in the war
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Guard_of_Ukraine

        It seems that not only is the Russian army clashing with the Ukrainian army, you also have variations where the Russian National Guard clashes with the Ukrainian army proper; the Ukrainian National Guard clashes with the Russian army proper; both National Guards clash; and the armed voluntary militias on both sides doing their thing as well.

        • Varna says:

          The Russian National Guard is 340 000 people.
          The Russian Army ground forces is 280 000 people.

          If in the current war, say half the personnel on the Russian side is always the National Guard, I think this strengthens my earlier theory that all Russian military units are being gradually rotated in and out, to give everyone a taste of ground war.

          By now they’ve probably given all the European federal states army units a whiff of gunpowder and are starting to give the Siberian units a chance to see how shit happens in real life.

            I maintain that UKR is not and never was the goal, but it was a necessary first step. There are lessons being learned, and many young officers are moving up the ranks as generals get killed off or dismissed. Just like real conservatives in the USA, the Russian leadership sees unavoidable war on the horizon. Unlike those conservatives, they’ve decided to take the initiative.

            • Frank Matters says:

              Do you have anything to support this view? I’ve only seen blackpilling from actual russians about the state of the army; namely, Putin is KGB and fears the military may have the ability to destabilize his power. Hence, you see humiliation rituals borne out on troops by mob organizations, and the incredibly high death rate of the upper commanding officers. It seems plausible, and it would explain what looks to me to be a very sloppily executed invasion. However, I am very open to opposing evidence, and in fact wish what you are describing to be true.

              • jim says:

                An incredibly high death rate among commanding officers does suggest a sloppily executed invasion, though I would say the problem was not sloppy execution, but competent execution of World War II thinking, weapons, tactics, and strategy when warfare is now in the Information Epoch, a pathology that every major military suffers from. They are always well prepared to fight the last war.

                But an incredibly high death rate among commanding officers does not indicate lack of enthusiasm and support in the military, rather the reverse, though it is likely to result in lack of enthusiasm and support.

                To remedy that problem, Putin needs to re-orient the military to Information Epoch warfare, and needs to weaponize the state religion, as the Holy Roman Empire and the grandparents of King Alfred did.

                Whether he will do so remains to be seen. If we see a cross on the armored personnel carriers, rather than a Z on the tanks, he is going to win.

                • Varna says:

                  If Putin puts orthodox crosses on his tanks, this will give globohomo the final reason to claim all Christians are fascists, and demand that everyone choose between the cross and globohomo.

                • jim says:

                  Tanks are obsolete. Put the crosses on helmets, body armor, armored personnel carriers, and missiles.

                  Drones are the first step in Information Epoch warfare. The next step is smart gunsights that give you thermal infrared vision and access to a mesh network of your buddy’s body armor and guns, and the step after that is helmets that provide augmented reality so that a soldier can see and speak with his buddies even if there is cover interrupting his line of sight, can see where drones have spotted his enemies even if they are behind cover, and can switch to a drone’s eye view.

              The short answer is: the way US politicians say with an honest face “we only have 10K troops left in place X” without adding “and also 40K more blackrock mercenaries made up of retired US soldiers”.

              In Russia an officer comes over to the conscripts and says “this is your lucky day boys, sign these papers to become pro soldiers and I ain’t gonna tolerate any no’s”.

              The long answer is this: after the 2014 Crimea thing everyone made their own conclusions. The Ukraine started building a real army. Russia begun stockpiling gold, and doing a number of other things.

              In 2015 Putin signed two documents. With one he resurrected the “pioneer” Boyscouts in a new post-Soviet version,
              https://xn--d1axz.xn--p1ai/news/7691
              two million kids membership

              and with the other he created the “young cadets” youth movement. One million youths as members.
              https://yunarmy.ru/

              Very illustrative images: https://yandex.com/images/search?from=tabbar&text=%D1%8E%D0%BD%20%D0%B0%D1%80%D0%BC%D0%B8%D1%8F

              A year later, in 2016, Putin signed into existence Rosgvardia, the current National Guard, which after the restructuring answers basically only to him.

              It has now been half a dozen years since all of this, so one generation of kids became young militarized patriots, and one generation of youths became National Guardsmen.

              In a sense the main lesson after 2014 for Putin was “The next conflict is going to be for real. They will try to crush us for real. I need to have an ally like China, I need gold reserves, and I need to start preparing a new generation of kids I can rely now right fucking now this minute.”

              A fledging Prussia-like construct with banal Austro-Hungarian efficiency is thus far the result.

I’ve never identified as an atheist, even in my cringiest lefty periods, because it’s such an annoying group of people. As I’ve insinuated myself further into both devout and conservative circles, I’ve yet to encounter an atheist without Progressive priors. While many are not militantly atheist, the few I’ve pressed always seem surprised when, in defense of their atheistic perspective, the stumble upon Cathedral implanted assumptions buried within their own logic. Is there such a thing as right wing atheism? If so, how is it derived? I guess I could see agnosticism, but again, how does one get there without humanism?

      • ExileStyle says:

        Atheism, as a form of radical iconoclasm, is inherently leftist. It can be totalitarian of course but never right totalitarian. Iconoclasm seeks only to level, destroy, and force submission of all to a single law. This is why, despite the pleasure I take in watching isolated groups like the Taliban unnerve leftist gender ideology, I look at Islam and Judaism, and Buddhism for that matter, as essentially one with western Marxist-Leninism: annihilation of all specificity and individual form in the name not of any specific abstract idea but in the name of abstraction itself. Priestly (Levite/Pharasaic) Judaism was the first transhumanism, the Priestly Law as the ultimate idol. Islam is even more radical: submission not just to Law but to the very idea of Submission itself, for its own sake.

        Luckily for the rest of the world, Islam froze culturally very early on and lost all potential for conversion, and Judaism had no interest in converts, otherwise the Left Singularity would have happened over a millennium ago.

        I also lack emotional faith in revealed Christian truths, but I do have intellectual faith in Gnon, i.e. Natural Law or Logos, which I have always found a useful concept for those of us without faith and/or a church. God does not need me to believe in him for his laws to speak his truth. I may need to affirm him to be saved, but that is still something I am working out.

        Atheism is more than a negative lack of faith in a nameable transcendent being. It is the positive effort to obliterate this being, his name, and all his images.

          The leftist singularity *did* happen a millenium ago. Islam had its leftist singularity about a nine centuries back.

          • S says:

            The Triune god is a compromise because there are an infinite number of rational ways to set Jesus’s divine status with God (and thus call everyone else a heretic). So they picked a totally irrational stance in order to make it so you couldn’t do that.

            • jim says:

              Faith in that completely irrational stance reflects and resolves the human mind body problem.

              It prevents holiness spirals, since there are as you note rather too many “rational” ways to address the issue – none of them all that rational, merely having the appearance of rationality. Each rational stance just buries the issue deeper, and if a “rational” stance succeeds in making its proponent holier than the other guy, some one else is going to dig into the problem and come up with some more “rationality”.

              But, most importantly, the triune God serves as a flag to rally around and club to beat one’s enemies. Embracing a contradiction is a good test to see whose side someone is really on.

              However, since the Cathedral uses as its loyalty test the embrace of lies ever more destructive, hurtful, evil, damaging, and self damaging (that, I think is what is causing the collapse of testosterone and sperm production), demanding that someone speaks as if those lies were false is a good test. If someone can speak the truth, serves the same useful purpose as the triune God.

              This condition (that we have a highly effective rational and materialistic test available) means that the trinity has less military and political utility than it did in the time of Constantine. The triune God made Constantine emperor, and had he not at that faith, probably would have wound up dead. (Histories that focus on secular events of Constantine’s rise to emperor miss what happened, leave out the important parts of what happened, without which the secular events make no sense.)

              The faith of Gnon is a way of using one test without needing to abandon the appropriate use of the other.

              Red pilled Christianity is Christianity that embraces the position of Paul and Peter on sex, marriage, and family, and acknowledges it as an empirical truth about the world, thus deploying both tests.

              The rationality of the Dark Enlightenment is that material and effective causation has moral significance. (As is pretty obvious when we are talking about trannies and the collapse of marriage, fertility, and family)

              The relationship between material and effective causation and its moral significance is expressed in the language of logos and telos – and you know what true Christianity has to say about the Logos.

                I have been slowly working through an updated theology of Christian war based on rediscovering ignored teachings of Christianity.

                1) Under the Old Testament, Israel was commanded by God to subjugate the Holy Land with force.
                Source: The entire Old Testament. The right for Israel to wage holy war is persuasively argued nowadays by Israeli theologians who have kindly documented it on behalf of Israel.

                Why do we care about that?… Because

                2) The New Testament superseded the Old Testament. Jews lost their status. The Church is the new Israel.
                Source: Matthew 21:33-45 (Parable of Vineyard). The theory of supersession, dominant in Christianity for 2000 years, has been “replaced” since WW2 by “dual covenant” or “dispensationalism”, which has gutted our warrior-priest theology.

                OK, so what is our equivalent of the Holy Land that we’re to subjugate?

                3) In the New Testament, Christians are commanded to “go and make disciples of all the nations” so that “thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.”

                Source: Mathew 28:19. “Go and make disciples of all the nations”. This “Great Commission” was widely cited by the Spanish conquistadors and “evangelism by the sword” as the justification for putting an end to demon-worship in the New World. It’s nowadays mostly cited by Christian reconstructionism and Christion Dominionism, but sadly combined with Dispensationalism, which we reject.

                Ergo,
                4) Since Christians are the New Israel and the World is the new Holy Land, Christians should use force if necessary. God rewards those who evangelize his Church by the sword with rule.

                Source: This is a logical outcome of the above. But we can find Scriptural support in

                Revelations 2:26. “The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod and shatter them like pottery— just as I have received authority from My Father, and I will give him the Morning Star.”

                Matthew 10:34. “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.”

                Luke 22:36: “He that has not sword, let him sell his cloak and buy one.”

                Much remains to be done but by returning to the old interpretations we can reclaim the religion of Constantine and the Crusaders, of Deus Vult and In Hoc Signo Vinces.

                  An alternative interpretation of the events of Constantine was that the priesthood of early Christianity provided a superior faith to the dead and dying Roman paganism.

                  Constantine reached out his hand for something and found a live Christian faith.

                  Yes, but he reached out to rise to power. He did not reach out after he rose to power.

                  The critical event was that his (mostly pagan) troops hailed him as Caesar, an honor apt to be fatal.

                  In the Roman official religion, which his army officially practiced, any enterprise required the official priests to sacrifice an animal, and read the auguries.

                  The priesthood, possibly under the influence of demons, probably under the influence of Rome, gave this enterprise extremely bad omens.

                  Constantine claimed, and perhaps had, divine inspiration that he would win. “In this sign, conquer”, and had his army carry Christian banners.

                  And under those banners, he took Rome.

                  Christianity became the state religion under an emperor whose army had carried Christian banners into battle in the civil war.

                  This happened at a time when military technology was tending to favor a relatively small number of elite well equipped well trained troops, in which situation, because elite troops need to be granted considerable room for initiative and independent action, elite cohesion becomes more important.

                  The official priesthood attacked that cohesion. Which attack was weak because no one believed the official religion any more, even though they officially gave lip service, even though Constantine officially gave lip service. Fighting under Christian banners implies and presupposes elite warrior cohesion on the basis of shared Christian faith.

                  The Christian banners celebrated and maintained that cohesion.

                  The analogous event in modern America would be that the Cathedral denounces an army faction as as sexist, racist, homophobic and transphobic, and the hostile force puts crosses on its military vehicles and purges women and perverts from anything that can exercise authority over fighting men.

        I’d say so, and it starts with Xunzi.

        I could go on at quite a length, with quotations from both said Confucian sage (often described in the West as the Hobbes to Mencius’s Rousseau), and from Alexander Eustice-Corwin’s “Confucianism After Darwin.” But to try to tl;dr it, societal traditions and rituals — “the rites” in Confucian parlance — are a kind of technology, like writing or agriculture. They allow us to maintain post-Neolithic civilizations despite brains mostly adapted to the Paleolithic. Like any product of Darwinian struggle, their conservation and antiquity serve as attestation of their adaptedness and utility, and one tampers with them at not just one’s own but at society’s peril.

        And that while (leftist) atheists claim to “believe in” Darwinism, in practice they don’t actually believe it — or even understand it, really — except as a vague creation myth and shibboleth, and they react with shrieking and sputtering whenever you point them to its present-day implications.

        A Darwinian materialist universe, properly understood, is no friendlier to Leftist egalitarianism or creation of the New Soviet Man Progressive Genderfluid Individual than the Old Testament is.

        And, as I’ve said to a Catholic friend, with whom I find more in common despite my unbelief than I do any (left-wing) “atheist,” we can dispute whether those who wrote down the Old Testament had any experience with the divine, but we cannot dispute they had experience with *women*.

          The elite American eugenicist socialist who believed in racist sexist Darwinism was outmaneuvered and defeated with trivial ease within the span of a generation by hostile entryists to his faith; or rather, because it could not constitute a faith, the scientists who professed it were easily infected by hostile memes.

          The Enlightenment is something of a boogeyman in this case. Puritanism was always based on voting for one’s elders instead of trusting the hereditary king’s appointed bishops. This is fundamentally being governed by people hungry for power, rather than those born into it, and ultimately it becomes merged with the Cathedral as soon as elections become too big, expensive, and yet lucrative, etc. Contests taken too far reward cheating, not virtue, as it becomes impossible for an honest person to achieve the nominally heroic standards required of the political elite.

          “Fundamentalist” Calvinist types are kept around as a reserve army of the establishment and they don’t even know they’re part of it. But try to bring up monarchy with them and they’ll think of it and you even lower than Pope Francis.

Under the initial Massachusetts colony charter, the Puritans created a government in which Congregationalism was the state church, its ministers were supported by taxpayers, and only full church members could vote in elections. It was in this society that Harvard was founded to ensure that Massachusetts had a supply of educated ministers.

                  “Massachusetts was the first state in the United States to abolish slavery. (Vermont, which became part of the U.S. in 1791, abolished adult slavery somewhat earlier than Massachusetts, in 1777.) The new constitution also dropped any religious tests for political office, though local tax money had to be paid to support local churches. People who belonged to non-Congregational churches paid their tax money to their own church, and the churchless paid to the Congregationalists.”

                  My hypothesis is that the Puritan government (of course they had one) was church polity and a very weak church polity – the equality of every village pastor. The Puritan “state” was a confederation of villages in which additionally every member of a village could leave any time he wanted and join a different village. Such a “state” is going to have a hard time forming an army and it doesn’t look like Massachusetts Puritans ever succeeded in forming an army, though they had some influence in the armies raised by the official kingly state of Massachusetts, which they generally opposed.

                  Quakers on the other hand had a nebulous and apparently inoffensive belief system perfectly suited for entryism. Quakerism is social poison, so the Quakers killed themselves, but not before entering more institutions, turning them in to factories for more Quakers, and dooming them to death. A pattern we see to the present day.

                  The Puritan aesthetic is completely gone, and Progressives don’t look much like 17th century Puritans at all, but they look almost exactly like 17th century Quakers.

In 1661, King Charles II forbade Massachusetts from executing anyone for professing Quakerism.[39] In 1684, England revoked the Massachusetts charter, sent over a royal governor to enforce English laws in 1686 and, in 1689, passed a broad Toleration Act.[39]”

It re-established itself in 1688 with questionable legitimacy, and William III confirmed its existence but only on the basis that it was not allowed to continue to be a Puritan theocracy.

                  Woodrow Wilson came from Princeton in Quaker country, and his “peace without victory” policy seems rather more Quaker than the Congregationalist “God made them as stubble to our swords.” (Cromwell)

                  Princeton educated the Southern elite as neither RIchmond nor Charleston had a major university.

                  Harvard has eclipsed Princeton recently. Every Harvard president has been Jewish since 1991. I’m unsure how significant Harvard was in the twilight of the Congregationalists. The direct and major influence of the universities onto politics essentially started with Wilson and was consolidated with FDR. FDR went to Harvard but had vague religious views.

                  “As we discussed, FDR had had a pretty sunny religious upbringing within a liberal Protestantism that H. Richard Niebuhr once dismissed as “a God without wrath saving a people without sin through Christ without a cross.” ”

        We have seen a vigorous effort by Russians to win the hearts and minds of Russian speakers in the Ukraine, which effort shows every sign of succeeding, and proof of its success it the increasingly brutal terror being waged by Zelensky and the Azov brigade.

            Old type leftism was nationalist and socialist. Nationalist leftism hit a decline when no more emperors, thus no more applecarts to knock over, and in the end internationalist leftism crushed it brutally. But in the Ukraine, old type leftists get indulgence from the Cathedral for obvious reasons.

            So, not fake and gay. The real original leftism that the Cathedral is now reluctantly in alliance with, with both sides planning to crush the other once victory is assured.

              20th century nationalist leftism was a formidable faith. Russia does not have the combined might of the 20th century internationalist faith to crush it this time. I fear they have brought a gun to a gun fight but not a faith to a holy war.

      • Basil says:

        Putin’s problem is that he has created an environment in which successful information attack on Russia can be carried out, and the possibility of counter-attack operations in the west has decreased.

        The second problem is that he did not create lofty conditions inside Russia. David’s heroic resistance turned out to be more interesting, even in a dysfunctional country like Ukraine, than the country Putin created. This is not just about Ukrainians, foreign lovers of The Soviet prick prefers to stay in a country with transgender, we can say that they live inside the tale of Northern Hyperborea.

        Putin’s third problem is that he is a Soviet prick and cannot become a legitimate Russian tsar because of his nature.

    • Skippy says:

      Basil glows in the dark. His most ridiculous post complained about Putin not implementing school vouchers.

      • Basil says:

        You simply do not understand how rotten the modern Prussian school is… Reactionaries need to talk more about this problem, the idea that the modern school is one of the main drivers of modern leftism.

        It is utopian to think that the Normis are starting to take away their children from school en masse and switch to home schooling, as I would like. It is utopian to think that Putin will abolish general secondary education, he has not done things much less motivated. In this case, it is necessary to weaken the harmful influence of the school and one way to do this is through a voucher system.

        • Skippy says:

          Schools need to be smashed but vouchers are a US meme and really a US liberaltarian meme. Never heard anyone even in the US reactosphere talk about them. Most people in other countries are unaware of the idea. It somehow feels uniquely unRussian. Probably because it depends on efficient and honest bureaucracy for implementation.

          Further thoughts on you. You do not make any Slavic/foreign language errors in English. There are such Russian natives with extreme English proficiency, like Anatoly Karlin, but they’re very rare, and I don’t see any huge body of writing in English from you.

          You’re an American posting from America who has some knowledge of Russian culture. Your glow is dim and sophisticated but no less radioactive.

          • Skippy says:

            Vouchers are a coap mechanism for Americans trying to do what they can with the US Constitution and with their own essential soullessness. Why wouldn’t a Russian nationalist want to give the schools to the Orthodox church? The same post complained that Putin didn’t reimpose patriarchal marriage.

            You post exclusively from within a US mental frame, specifically a US mental frame constructed by a US progressive trying to mimmick a US internet reactionary. Admittedly a much more sophisticated effort than the usual.

            • Basil says:

              I will never take my child to school. My child. Not states, not schools, not teachers, not people who write school textbooks and define their holiness. My. This is a fundamental position. The Bible doesn’t say: find a good Orthodox school and throw your kids into it. The Lord explicitly and repeatedly indicates that parents should educate and raise their children. In this judgment, I have full confidence in Scripture and Christian doctrine. The creators of the modern school themselves say that the goal of the school is to replace family, social and patriotic values ​​with obedience to bureaucrats and loyalty to the faceless Motherland. And the problem is not only in the content, but also in the form.

              I have never concealed the fact that my views combine libertarian and reactionary principles. They complement, not contradict each other.

            English is the lingua franca of the 21st century. When I was small, I needed it to listen to the original voice acting in games, not the perversions of FARGUS, and now I need it for my work.

            You have a poor idea of the mood outside of America. In Russia people want less state in their lives. It’s okay to want a reduction in what is killing your ancestors and ruining your life now.

            And no, most of them are not liberals, but ordinary men who do not want to pay taxes

            • Skippy says:

              I am not American. I have worked with Russian native speakers who produce professional documents who cannot place articles with the 100% accuracy that you somehow manage.

              I am sure they do, but in the west Libertarianism as an organized political faction is a 100% Cathedral owned skin suit. The same appears to be true in Russia.

              I don’t think you are either a Russian or a Libertarian.

              To see if you are a libertarian, or a Cathedral operative wearing the Libertarian skin suit, give me the old pre skin suit line on freedom of association. Tell me about freedom of association in Russia and America.

    • The Chad Russian Rapist says:

      One day (in the unlikely event that you produce progeny) you will attend your young son’s elementary school play. It is a very good school, because your government graciously provided a voucher. The curtains will rise on him dancing around in a miniskirt and thong before he is grabbed and forcibly sodomized by a fat nigger tranny, your son’s homeroom teacher, in full view of the audience. Your country did not have niggers before, but now it does. After finishing, your son, choking back tears, gives a speech on how much he loves cock as the audience erupts in rapturous applause. You clap as well, and keep clapping, knowing you are likely to lose your job if you do not.

      “Thank Floyd”, you think. “Thank Floyd that we fought off Putin. His reactionary state was less than ideal, after all. And the Rainbow Empire let you keep your petty regional nationalism too! Maybe some day you’ll elect a sensible right of center nationalist just like Orban, who will provide subsidies to birthing humans and increase your historically insignificant peasant nation’s TFR by .04 as a result.

      • Basil says:

        The more centralized the school system, the more likely it is that every school in your country will resemble the scenario you describe, and the more likely you will lose the freedom to raise your children in person completely, as the Germans lost it. This, in turn, predetermines the left social catastrophe and dooms the nation to collapse.

        Because under the voucher system, the parents will decide, not the government official. This gives rise to competition between schools, it allows parents to form the school curriculum and the teaching staff. At the same time, this is quite a real reform, and not just another wet fantasy about King Trump.

        Orban showed better demographic dynamics for ethnic Hungarians than Putin for ethnic Russians and does not bring more than 500k migrants from Central Asia into his country per year. Putin also sponsors births through “social assistance” if you didn’t know.

        • Kunning Drueger says:

          2) You insist that the idea of perfect acquits your opposition to an obvious good. Zoom out from our personal issues (I’m a father dealing with the education industrial complex as well), zoom out from our current era, and look at the broad, historical facts: the GAE had to hide until USSR collapsed. They then declare that History is over, and begin to move in the open. Their inaugural moves are faggotizing entertainment, westernizing the Pact, and pillaging Russia. They continue to grow, even as their American opposition spends it’s blood fighting ragheads. They ignore Russia and assume convergence will just take a bit longer. They pivot to the far East, attempting to use the same tactics against China that worked on USSR. As they realize their eschaton, their incompetence and evil usher in decay and regression. Someone was bound to stand up and resist. It is Putin. This is not optimal, as Putin is far from perfect. The GAE is attempting to portray the Opposition as Putinist, as a personality cult. They need this to be a struggle between their overwhelming power and a selfish, moronic, insane lone adversary. If it turns into a competition of ideology, they are in bad shape for that type of struggle.

          3) Fine, Putin bad. What is better? Who should we look to? Trust the process? Vote our way to Better? Fucking China?

      You don’t know any mainstream conservatives, and you attempt to discuss the issues in language that does not acknowledge that there is any difference between men and women – even on the sports field.

      There is a lot that is terribly wrong with conservatism, but the flaws that you depict would never occur to anyone that had any contact with conservatives or conservatism.

      Conservatives are powerless and impotent because they cannot say “degenerate”, “contemptible”, “disgusting”, “inferior”, “defective”, “perverted”, “depraved”, and “evil”. And getting aboard with trannie cult is not going to empower them.

  39. Kunning Drueger says:

    Possibly off topic
    A while back, a commenter here stated something along the lines of “women only post online for 1 of 2 reasons: display or demand”(heavily paraphrased, sorry for lack of direct quote). For the consideration of those here, and with a request for comment, critique, and application, I submit the following:

    Simple Signal Response and Interaction theory

    Female social media interaction appears to conform to some very primitive motivations. The assertion is: every female social media post falls into 2 categories, and each category consists of 2 groups. The categories are “Demand” and “Display.” The groups are “Someone Should Come Get This/Me” & “No One Can Get/Have/Handle This/Me” for the first category and “Look What I Have” & “Why Don’t I Have?” for the second category.

    The groups can be further divided into positive, negative, or neutral. Messages and posts can carry a double valence, requiring the reader/receiver to decide the state upon viewing, a form of Quantum Fitness Testing. This is completely reversible at any point, even ex post facto, even years after the fact. The charge of the message can vary, but the categorization has a direct connection to the status or state the female believes she enjoys/suffers from at the precise moment of the post. For example, a happily married tradwife can make a Someone Should Come Get This post aimed at exes and alphas due to an argument or emotion of the moment. This doesn’t change the many honestly proud Look What I Haves that came before, or after, but in the precise moment of posting, she feels inclined to or justified in …Come Get This posting.

    Posts written over time can contain both categories, of both groups, with all three potentialities, but it is more common to see self-referential or self-reinforcining with a more or less consistently aligned flock of signals. For example, a standard thot that’s recently converted to LTR can post a complicated signal of “No One Can Have” + “Look What I Have” + “Why Don’t I Have ” + “Someone Should Come Get This” all wrapped up in a “Look What I Have.”

    Familiarity with the person behind the post decrypts the nuance of the signalling. Scrolling through Female Twitter will generate unintelligible signalling to a normal, uninvolved male, but if you drill down into each girl and dig up their first/most significant male liaison (could be defined as Realized Subject of Ideation), they could probably translate much of the messaging because they are familiar with the lifestyle, life progression, and habit/tendency pattern of the subject female.

    The faux-complexity of female signalling is a recent social evolutionary adaptation to a relatively weak position in the breeding arms race. While the women does make the selection of mate (usually) in the Holocene Homo Sapiens, she is powerless to prefer. This means that her choice is subconscious in the purest sense; she just acts in a decision made by her biological self. The Womb drives the Woman.

    (This is less than alluring and is akin to displaying cards the moment they come out. In line with this metaphor, imagine each man comes with 1 card, and every woman comes with 3. If the the man’s 1 is bigger than any of the 3, the man has a chance of breeding opportunity. If the 1 is bigger than all 3 combined, the woman has no chance of resisting the breeding opportunity. The woman is always showing her cards, just one at a time. The man can decide to show or not show his card. Thus, men make a habit of hiding their card, and women make a habit of cycling their cards quickly, both attempting to gain leverage in a situation they can’t really control.)

    This is not a Rosetta Stone for interpretation of female signalling. It’s more like studying starlight than the behavior of fauna: lots of data/info to observe, not much applicability at the historical moment. What needs to happen is a test of this assertion using the massive and growing amount of data out there. The first step is to decide what not to look at. Organizations with a media manager are out (unfortunately, because this is a historically amusing avenue certain women feel empowered to use to signal personal status, which always ends in laughter and tears). Any account that cannot be corroborated as female within some perce
