American logistic capability

American GDP is fake and gay. American GDP is for the most part not riggers in red states lifting steel, workers on the assembly line, cattle ranchers raising cattle, nor even truckers, warehouses, and shops moving goods from where they are made to where they are used, it is people in blue states doing business in permissions that allow riggers to lift steel and ranchers to raise cattle. American GDP is the HR department, not the trucker.

America produces about a hundred and fifty tomahawk missiles a year. Russia has expended about five thousand or so similar missiles in the Ukraine. Nato is running out, Russia does not appear to be running out.

America’s largest and most capable aircraft carrier is the Nimitz. Built in 1967. Maintenance and repairs are piling up. The Navy has been trying, and failing, to produce new ships for some time, with the result that America’s fleet is shrinking, while China’s grows. The Navy cannot build what it used to be able to build, and cannot maintain and repair what it inherited. The Navy suffers the same disability that NASA suffers. How much of the stuff on the Nimitz is still in order suitable for use in battle?

The Nimitz can deliver that many missiles in a week. But how many missiles does it have to deliver? It was built for an America that could mass produce stuff like that. This is not that America.

The most important, powerful, and effective weapon in the US arsenal is a fifty year old plane firing seventy year old cannons scoured from museums and looted from ancient forgotten overseas arms depots.

In the conflict over the Ukraine, the hollowing out of western industrial capability is showing up.

Right now China could sink the Nimitz. It is in range of Chinese hypersonics at this moment. But order to sink it, it has to be able to see it. War in the Pacific is likely to lead to war in space – in which Musk is the superpower, though since much of his assets are in space, he is very much opposed to space war. America leads by far in space based observation capability, thanks largely to Musk’s ability to lift stuff. But to remove other great power’s capability for space based observation may require assistance he is likely to be reluctant to provide. But he may not have much choice with all his ground assets US based.

Russia and China have crude satellite weapons. But the winner in a space war is likely to be whoever has greater capability to lift stuff to orbit.

All Global American Empire approved political candidates are saying “Russia will be defeated”. You should not want to defeat a nuclear power. You want to push it into an unfavorable deal with military pressure. Which is what the US has been doing for eight years in the Ukraine, except for the deal part. They seem congenitally unable to make a deal. Defeating a nuclear power is likely to become unpleasant. If no deal eventually nukes.

What happens if Nato goes directly to war with Russia?

Well, most of Nato lacks actual soldiers, as became amusingly apparent in the Serbian wars. As I am fond of saying, Britain has a hundred generals, but can only put a hundred boots on the ground. The US has actual soldiers, or had, the number is rapidly diminishing. Probably some Nato countries have actual soldiers. The Ukraine does have actual soldiers, having conscripted just about everyone. Right now they substantially outnumber Russian soldiers in the Ukraine. But they are dependent on Nato logistics, and Russian shells clearly outnumber Ukrainian shells. Direct Nato involvement will not help much with the logistic crisis.

Reagan’s strategy for defeating the Soviet Union was logistic exhaustion, to bleed them in a hundred little wars. That worked, and today the Global American Empire strategy is the same: “Russia is a gas station masquerading as a nuclear power”. This time around however, does not look like it is working. “Russia will be defeated” rests on the claim that Russia is rapidly exhausting its stockpiles. Maybe, but they are not acting as if they are exhausting their stockpiles.

Some time ago the Ukraine tweeted a chart supposedly showing Russian stockpiles and weapons production. According to that chart, they should have run out quite some time ago. Global American Empire quasi state media have been reporting for months that Russia is about to run out. They are drinking their own koolaide.

A few days back, Russia started using what it calls “end guided bombs” to good effect, though it would be more accurate to call them bomber launched glider drones. Obviously these are not coming from its stockpiles. Further, bomber launched glider drones are a more effective, advanced, and modern weapon that what the USA calls end guided bombs.

Some time ago the west decided to send its highly advanced tanks to the Ukraine. These wonder weapons would make short work of the Russians, we are told. They have not arrived. I conjecture a conversation took place that went something like

“How many tanks do we have ready to roll?”

“Well, when they arrive in the Ukraine, certain maintenance procedures will be required, and we will have to make arrangements for those maintenance procedures to be deployed in the Ukraine”

“How long will that take?”

“Well, we are having some delays in deploying them here.”

Perhaps I am being unduly cynical, but the west has a whole lot of warplanes that are “not full spectrum combat ready”. Perhaps it has a similar problem with tanks. The Global American Empire military industrial complex is in the same pickle as Nasa. It has a whole lot of enormously impressive terrifyingly powerful stuff lying around from the days of half a century ago, that it can no longer make, maintain, nor competently use. Exhibit A being the Nimitz and the space shuttle engines. The US Navy is not rapidly shrinking because of budgetary decisions to shrink it. They budgeted to expand it. It is shrinking for the same reason as Nasa was begging the Russians for lifts to the space station. They tried to build warships, and just failed. Tanks and warships are a similar technology. If you cannot build warships, maybe you are only pretending to build tanks.

It is hard to say, for the first casualty of war is truth, but the way the wind blows now, it is not Russia that is running out.

This is related to an earlier post on the fakeness of American GDP afflicting American consumers. Used to be that every moderately competent, moderately industrious, man could afford a home, a garden, children, and a stay at home wife. Used to be that American shopping centers looked like shopping centers for rich people. Now they look like shopping centers for third world people. I was very recently in a big top end third world mall. Looked very nice. On the whole, wealthier, more attractive, and more comfortable ambiance than what I see around here, though most people in that town do their shopping in places more typically third world and Singapore has much nicer places. But if you look at a nice shopping center in Singapore, and what you can find in America, it is like night and day. Singapore shopping centers imply a considerably higher quality of customer than American shopping centers. A typical Chinese restaurant just has a nicer ambiance than the typical American restaurant, the typical Chinese car is nicer than the typical American car, and the typical Singaporean car is way nicer.

They say the pleasant and beautiful old malls disappeared because of economics. Could not compete with Walmart prices. Maybe, but outside the Global American Empire, and on its periphery, I see pleasant and beautiful malls going up.

    Let us begin with Buddhism, which will be our comparative case for constructing our framework in this essay. Buddhism is the oldest organised religion in the Dharmic civilisational tradition (one could make the case for Brahmanism, but its codification was achieved only in the Manusmriti, after centuries of development, and centuries after the ‘founding’ of Buddhism; ancient Aryanism before the codification of the Manusmriti should be compared to the shamistic-animism of the greater Indo-European tradition, gradually transforming into universalist deistic philosophy, as it also did in Greece

    Huge thanks to Jim for allowing the discussion.

      > Being from a smaller community, often times solidarity is more important

      Sikhs have always historically considered themselves as part of a broader dharmic coalition. Whether you identify as Hindu or not is a non issue.

      What globohomo has done is to turn a part of your community into a victimhood card carrying minority and which is exactly what I pointed out and you became aggressive towards me at that point. The Indian secular state is bad to Sikhs but infinitely worse for Hindus, but globohomo is even worse at this stage.

      Any alliance with globohomo will turn future generations of Sikhs into gay soyboys. Whereas under a broader dharmic coalition Sikhs will remain autonomous and retain their traditional identity.

      If you are genuine about your stated position on dharma, you need to think of long term implications.

      • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

        There is no ‘secular state’, in Bharat or otherwise, without the GAE in the first place. It’s hard to see how this point can be failed to be appreciated.

        • Dharmicreality says:

          This is not something I deny. The Indian secular state is evil but behind globohomo on many aspects of prog and Hindu nationalism, however imperfect, has pushed back on some aspects of globohomo. I consider mainstream Hindu nationalism as weak sauce. But that is what hurts GAE and why minorities are being weaponized against Hindu nationalism. As Jim says, GAE fears a nuclear powered Hindu nationalist India. Even if that Hindu nationalism is somewhat bluepilled.

          • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

            Of course, not to say you were denying it, rather backing up your point.

                  Sure, and part of putting that house back in order is noticing that certain castes are far more degen & have been for millenia.
                  Rather than, an ideological shift GAE or liberalism is rule by certain castes over others.

                  In that sense, DharmicReality even worrying about politics or commenting as an equal is part of the problem rather than the solution.

                  Thus, pointing out that he’s a blackfella is a very valid criticism. It’s saying his own ethnic grievances & inferiority complex leave him unable to comprehend the reality – that, not only Sikhs but most NW feudal tribes have turned against the state.

                  He refuses to state whether he’s even a North or South Indian. In a caste/tribal society anonymity is the recluse of a charlatan.

                  He has no business worrying about the North because even speaking to him about it violates purdah (veil).

                  For all intents, and purposes he’s’ a dalit.

                  He moved to substack because I was getting sick of this conversation, and I am sick of this conversation because you are unresponsive.

                  This blog is a good place for good faith discussion between the unconverged of all faiths. This is not good faith discussion. Your triumphalism about a religion that was decadent before the British conquered you and which is now polishing globohomo’s knob does not qualify you as entirely unconverged. He courteously criticized your religion for polishing globohomo’s knob, and though you are not a shill, like a shill, your response was and is irrelevant to that criticism. You were defeated by the British because under the rule of a woman, and are now defeated by globohomo before you start, because Sikhs are only demanding stuff that Globohomo rather likes you to demand.

                  You could not rule yourselves when the British conquered you, it was more them sorting out military anarchy than them conquering rival state, while Hinduism is now a short step away from nukes. If you don’t like that reality, posturing is no substitute for effective action. Sikhi is Hinduism’s little brother, and you are the little brother throwing a tantrum.

                  The Hindu-Sikh unity he speaks of is Sikhs treating Hindus who keep Hair/Weapons better than cleanshaven Sikhs.

                  NOT cleanshaven Hindus trying to equate themselves to proper Gursikhs & pretending Dharma is about shaving.

  6. C4ssidy says:

    design plan for a centralised version of a “trust network” inspired algorithm to complement a small content-sharing website:

    The random content on your feed will prioritise people you follow, second priority the people who you follow follow, then the people who they follow, etc , ad infinity, perhaps weighted by some kind of declining fraction series, so a random seed number multiplied by the declining fraction based upon degrees of separation

    In your options settings you can set the relative weights for each degree of separation and also individually for each person who you follow and for anyone they follow within the infinite series (you can view any username plus their degree of separation and their calculated content visibility weight) and for collective groups that they follow ie by degrees of separation from them . You can also choose to factor in the weights which other people you follow have set when deciding the likelihood of showing something from someone they follow

    Something similar for content “likes”, but again the weights of your likes and the weights of likes of people you follow themselves adjustable

    By default everyone follows the admin, and since I would have liked good content, they get good default content, but they can also unfollow the admin and get whichever bubble they are looking for (though never a fully sealed bubble unless they perhaps set every weight to zero pass a certain degree of separation)

    The random numbers, weights, and seed type numbers required would be done openly in javascript, so verifiably no shady activities with the algorithm even if I wanted to. In addition the entire network of usernames and their connections and their set weights would be public and downloadable by anyone, so even if the original website was subverted, anyone can continue the open system somewhere else

    Blue tick equivalent. You can give extra weight to the blue ticks , which by default will be high since it is hard to shill with paid accounts

    If a group makes a large number of accounts and they add each other, blue tick or not, and they end up close to you in degrees of separation, you’d want the system to adjust so that they do not take over, which should be as simple as having an open formula and letting you tweak every dial. Only one person needs to get it right and people would gradually follow him (plus assigning weight to his weights in their own feed) to start getting good content again by latching on to his own effort

    • jim says:

      That is very much what I had in mind. (With, of course, identities that are not readily traceable to people whose faces can be whacked in with a rifle butt.) Everyone runs his own trust network, which, because each network trusts other networks, becomes effectively one big trust network. Most people, being lazy, just trust someone and follow his trust network.

      Linux is effectively one big trust network, and the problem with systemd is that it is a big monolithic lump of trust in an otherwise well distributed network. Open Source plus Git is both a piece of software created by an engineer, and an instrument of cooperation created by a tech priest. Linus created Git to give useful effect to the faith of Richard Stallman. (Though these days musl is now superior to libc)

    • Aryaman says:

      Yes that would be good, the weights would be the eigenvalue centralities of the network from each users’ own view (thus, rank is not where a random surfer is at any time, but where a random surfer starting from you is at any time). And the setting would be a diffusion parameter like in pagerank, but the diffusion step wouldn’t be jumping to a random node, but a random node among those you follow.

    • Carte Blanche says:

      Long-tail algorithms run into the trust-relevance problem: should the system prioritize the month-old post from your best buddy, or the zero-day post from his friend’s boss’s gardener’s daughter? I use freshness as the canonical example of relevance here, since social media is usually chronological, but the problem is equally relevant to e.g. a search results page.

      The solution — to the extent that the problem is solvable at all — always relies on algorithms with fuzzy criteria. Complex, multivariate systems are inherently unpredictable, and in the case of social media, usually easy to abuse because of the low cost of trial-and-error. Exponential decay doesn’t “solve” the problem, only gives a variety of ways to mask it.

      It’s utopian fantasy to believe that throwing Granny and Griller (to say nothing of Shaniqua and Shitavious) into a pilot’s cockpit of bewildering knobs, gauges and other controls and leaving them to land it on their own is going to produce any kind of positive result. Equally utopian to expect that the ones who do it competently will “win” and gain the most followers; trusting the wrong pilot or surgeon means death, but trusting the wrong influencer has no serious penalty. There is a penalty to the network and the network’s reputation, but since the individual followers feel only a tiny sliver of the pain, they have no incentive to manage their personal networks properly even if they have the ability, which most don’t.

      The Linux developers of 30 years ago believed in this essentially Communist ideal that the laboring masses could learn to use powerful but highly complex tools effectively. They were wrong. Only programmers and sysadmins used the Linux of 30 years ago, and only the very competent among them. Today Linux has a wider audience but that is partly because over the last 15 years they’ve made tradeoffs to improve usability, including some very unfortunate moves toward centralization.

      For an operating system like Linux, a high barrier to entry is not a problem. For social media, where the value of the network is largely dependent on the popularity of the network, a high barrier to entry is death. Maybe it could work in a particular niche, like “social network for programmers” or “social network for priests” but you could not make it a viable competitor to Twitter or Facebook without dumbing it down.

      The way to dumb it down and still keep it secure is to use first-degree trust only (you see the posts of people you trust, and people they repost) or restricted second-degree trust (you can see all of the content of people you trust, and only the direct content of people they trust). That means you might not have as much content to publish in any one person’s feed, and it may not look or feel as impressive, but it is much more secure against abuse.

      The abuse you need to guard against is a spammer setting up a throwaway/bot account and being able to spam most of the network through a popular account. If a popular account gets compromised then you are vulnerable no matter what; a more troublesome vector is getting into the trust network of a popular account, either directly or (much worse, very easy to exploit) indirectly through some less-popular account that the popular account trusts.

      In other words, don’t allow a million users to get spammed because a popular user made the mistake of trusting a spammer; and definitely don’t allow them to get spammed because the popular user trusts another non-abusive user who made the mistake of trusting a spammer. Spam is not just a nuisance, either; because people are stupid, being able to spam large parts of the network means being able to control large parts of the network, and if you don’t believe that then just go on Discord and look for all of the messages from accounts that got “hacked” because they clicked on the “Free Nitro” spam.

      I think that “the public” cannot be trusted with arbitrary degrees of control over trust levels. They can’t even understand the exponential growth of degrees-of-separation, never mind the interaction of those exponents with exponential decay functions. What normal people do understand is the small-scale model of community trust: you trust your friend Bob, and he may refer you to his friend Alice or occasionally quote her, but unless you explicitly decide to go meet her yourself, you won’t hear anything directly from her. This is how our brains are naturally wired and it is (probably?) how a secure social network should work. We just don’t really want to hear from strangers, even if they’re technically friends of friends.

        The primary purpose of my content sharing website is creation rather than sharing. The created stuff (the nature of which I am currently jealously guarding) could be exported and shared in any of the traditional social media or communication platforms, however there are some good reasons why it would be fun to browse the archives directly . It is stuff suited for sharing publicly in the manner of Reddit and YouTube. The “feed” is therefore not critical to functionality but if users do want to browse I want to at least produce something better than the horrors of reddit style upvotes, let alone the quite unspeakable things which would go behind the youtube frontpage. It does not even necessarily have to factor in time either. Ultimately if dials did not work I could even say “here is everything ever made on the site in order of incremental integer id” and accept that everything pass a point is Sybil-flooded, and give up and let traditional channels sort out the good from the garbage

        The main reason I am interested in Sybil resistance is actually that I want non-ai based tagging and annotations. Suppose I have a photo or video containing the Eiffel Tower, and one user tags the area in the image as “Eiffel Tower” and five bots tag a link to free nitro. I obviously do not want to sort those tags by popularity, or for the computer to choose a “real” tag based on that. But it could present a series of tags and if the ui is simple enough even a normie could contribute something towards the sorting of true labels from false. If the solution exists it is perhaps economics-style curves where individual clicks can produce a measurable effect without having conscious knowledge of the process it feeds into

          An interesting space that I’ve worked with in the past before AI was an option — unfortunately, not with a lot of success beyond the conventional designs. I wish you luck. Maybe your proposal will work well in that space.

          The only thing I have to add about tagging specifically is that while your regular average Joe is good at “identification” style tagging of things — “this is a photo of a cat / the Eiffel tower / etc.” — he is atrociously bad at “category” style tagging of concepts like “this is a video about home improvement / baseball”.

          I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen a truly successful attempt at community-curated taxonomies. Stack Overflow (a programming Q&A site, for those who aren’t familiar) tried this and ended up with endless holy wars over the tags, and despite those holy wars, most questions still suffer from the most basic problem of insufficient and overgeneralized tags. Categorizing means abstracting things into concepts, and abstraction is, apparently, a high-IQ activity.

        They are not on their own. Ninety nine percent of users will not be using, will not see, all those knobs, gauges and buttons. They are going to leave them at default. But high popularity influencers will probably be twiddling them like mad.

        The ordinary user has other people following him, in which case they see what he posts or reposts, and can click on the threads of which those posts are part. But he does not generate a feed that third parties can follow, equivalent to automatic reposting, and if he attempts to to do so, then he is going to see all those knobs and buttons, and probably run away.

        The ordinary user will get a feed generated by the algorithm, just as he does on YouTube and Twitter. But, unlike YouTube and Twitter, the algorithm is running on a system he controls, and he can modify it, assuming he can read and write source code, which he probably cannot, so he will probably leave it alone, and not even realize it exists.

        I don’t see a problem. Only people who are following the popular user are going to get spammed, whereupon he suddenly becomes unpopular should he fail to swiftly shut it down and prevent it from happening again. It is like people taking over the Linus Tech Tips YouTube account to tell people that “Musk is offering to double your bitcoin, just send all your bitcoins to this address.” It happens. So what? Linus Tech tips apologized profusely and improved their security practices. It was not the death of YouTube, and it was largely irrelevant to YouTube’s security practices (which are very bad, but only in boring routine familiar ways.)

        It will happen, people with big followings will improve their practices. Big mailing lists get hijacked or corrupted all the time. Has not killed off email.

        • Carte Blanche says:

          If your premise is that spam and other forms of abuse are fine — or just some necessary evil that can’t be effectively contained — then not much that I say is going to matter. However, I think you’ve made a few (unintentionally) false analogies and as a result misrepresented my description of the problem.

          The example given here is a popular YouTube account being hacked. This is materially different because:
          – Followers of Linus Tech Tips will know immediately that what they are seeing is spam because they know what to expect from his channel, just as you would recognize if a Pod Person showed up at your home disguised as your brother.
          – YouTube has a centralized, algorithmically-controlled flagging system to quickly identify spam and suppress abusive content. Being centralized, bad actors naturally sought to control it and now they do control it, using it to eliminate any content that is politically inconvenient or insufficiently woke. But it is still reasonably effective at curtailing spam.
          – YouTube also has a centralized account recovery process to quickly restore control over the account to its rightful owner. Even if the flagging system did not exist, the account owner would realize this quickly and act to recover his account.
          – The popular account itself getting hacked was never the problem in the first place, it’s the ability of spammers to spam indirectly through the popular account, by being in the trust network of that account. That is much easier and cheaper to do than taking over the popular account, and doesn’t require anyone to have weak security.

          Also as I previously stated:
          – Spam is not just spam anymore, it is increasingly an attempt to gain control over some portion of the network, and once entrenched it becomes extremely difficult to excise. Discord and Twitter are probably both irrecoverably corrupted.
          – An exponentially-expanding graph (with or without exponential weight falloff, as spammers can compensate for falloff by ramping up volume/frequency) allows a single spammer to “trust” a hundred other fake accounts and use that to completely dominate the feeds of anyone who is technically reachable through that graph.
          – If the UI doesn’t clearly communicate the “path” to some indirect content, then ordinary users may have no idea how or why that content is showing up in their feed and, even given the ability to block individual accounts, will struggle to keep up. This is a problem that’s solvable in theory but difficult in practice, as there may be multiple valid paths, and even a single path traversing more than one node is hard for grogs to understand.

          You can’t compare a hypothetical loosely-authenticated peer-to-peer social network that’s trying to get established with an already well-established centralized service like YouTube. Different constraints, different problems, and if you want to do away with the many problems of centralization (which I thought was the point?) then you have to find a way to solve the problems that centralization solves.

          Also can’t compare to email, or shouldn’t compare. The most popular email provider, with daylight second, is gmail, and the main historical reason for that is that Google’s anti-spam measures were superior to every other option at the time. Before gmail, email spam was an absolutely brutal problem, and still is if you own your own email server and fail to protect the confidentiality of your address. If overwhelming widespread abuse resulting in the de facto centralization of a de jure decentralized protocol is success, then I wonder what failure looks like.

          • jim says:

            > YouTube has a centralized … you have to find a way to solve the problems that centralization solves.

            The YouTube algorithm runs on YouTube, and selects content for everyone. Your algorithm will run on your machine, and select content for you. But they will be very similar algorithms, except your’s is open source, so you can modify it, or download someone else’s modification. The algorithm is theoretically secret, but can be inferred from the publications of people that Google subsequently hired, and from innumerable leaks.

            The YouTube algorithm collects information from everyone. Your algorithm will collect information from everyone you are following, but their machines have information from everyone they are following, some of which gets shared to your machine. The YouTube algorithm has a direct connection to everyone. Your algorithm will have an indirect connection to everyone, though it will ignore, or never bother seeking, information about people and posts too distant in the trust chain.

            And the guy you are following also has a centralized system of control. Difference is, he is the center, and it is controlled by secrets known only to him. The problems solved by the centralized system of control are largely created by the centralized system of control, which is a single point of failure, and a single point to attack. Your YouTube account is controlled by secrets known to you and to YouTube. (Which was the problem with the Linus Tech Tips hack. Linus complained that YouTube was not expiring and replacing transient high value secrets fast enough. It should not have had those secrets at all. The hacker intercepted a secret generated by YouTube, and shared with a LinusTechTips employee’s browser, a secret that Linus should have known YouTube was generating, but did not, or did not think about, and that the average YouTuber is unlikely to be aware exists.)

            > a single spammer to “trust” a hundred other fake accounts and use that to completely dominate the feeds of anyone who is technically reachable through that graph.

            Sybil problem. Routine and easily fixed. The solution to this has long been known. (Google became great by being first to implement the algorithm.)

            Suppose there are N vertices n degrees of separation from the user. Then we assign each vertex log N base 1.2 random integer values.

            Then we iterate replacing the values at each vertex with the average of the values of their edges (this is similar to the original Google graph analysis algorithm) Every few iterations we discard vertices that remain too distant from the user at the center, and rescale the values by a power of two. This has the effect that vertices that are connected to many vertices connected to you wind up close you, while a vertex that connects to a thousand vertices, none of which have any other connection to anyone except other spammers, remains near its original position and gets discarded eventually. The spammer account that connects to a million spammer accounts, none of which have any other connection to anyone other than other spammers, is going to remain nearly stationary under this algorithm and will stick out like a dogs balls, being discarded early in the iterations. Everything else drifts closer to you.

            YouTube and Google run something like this trust algorithm, with their moderators at the center. You will run this algorithm, with you at the center.

            Google became the top search engine by running this algorithm with pages as vertices and links as edges, to generate page rank. Still running it last I heard, with an ever growing pile of cruft on top of it. The cruft delivers very little value, but marketing people and censors keep having bright ideas to cruft it up. Often they break it, as tends to happen to YouTube.

        To exercise arbitrary control over trust levels, will have to write code. This is a lot bigger obstacle to entry than linux, where I can trust an arbitrary repository. The normal user control over trust levels will be that a user can click on a link that someone he is already following has approved, and can then click on all the links that it links to, which is not a problem. If he keeps on clicking at random he is going to hit spam, and then stop. In the course of his clicking around he may find some interesting posts, and decide to follow that guy also. And if a pile of spam approved by that poster then appears on his feed, unfollow.

          On this point I agree with you completely: being able to click through someone else’s feed to see whom they trust, and look at their content, and continue at will along that graph, is not a problem at all.

          That’s a “referral” system. Works great. Mimics normal human relationships and community trust networks.

          The problems start when the system begins to implicitly merge that indirect content into your own feed, before you’ve chosen to trust those second- and third- and nth-degree contacts yourself. That’s the system C4ssidy was proposing — at least, I thought it was.

      I would not consider anything more than two degrees of separation from the user.

      The people we follow, and the people they follow, are relevant to us. Going any further seems excessive and opening up to exploitation much more easily. Also hurts performance.
      In terms of content two degrees should be enough.

      Being able to see what our friends’ friends post is enough to give us *discoverability*, ie we can add those accounts, which we didn’t know of previously, and expand our network if we want to. In which case we will see their follows, which were previously three degrees away.
      It allows us to find new accounts we didn’t know of, but without being fed too much garbage we have little relation to.

              I disagree, Red, I think small arms are a huge factor in modern war, but they aren’t challenging due to availability, quality, and relative ease of scaling the requisite supply chain. This is not to say that tube artillery and guided missiles and small arms are at the same level, not at all, but in the context of Ukraine, a country that is and has been awash in small arms and plenty of ammunition, they are a kind of invisible factor.

              If/when we start seeing actual unrest, strife, and conflict in the Occident Proper, the combat will look mighty different between the US, awash in small arms and ammo, and Europe, a place devoid of any significant amount of either. Small arms will be a significant factor in a lot of ways. Let’s say you are Country R and you wish to support the local opposition to Country A; if A has plenty of weapons & ammo, just need to send advisors, heavy weapons, and cash. As well, the dissenters in A will be able to make their own weaponry if they can get the tools for fabrication. Country E, on the other hand, having no small arms culture and no real capacity to develop and maintain production with merely inputs, will be a much different situation.

              Another aspect is the affect, character, and resolve of the combatants. An occupying force made up of conscripts and “salary soldiers” will need the full stack of weapons, support, supplies, logistics, and guidance just to hold territory and patrol. An occupied force will use whatever is to hand to oppose the occupiers. So Occupy will have a shit ton of gack just to do patrols and set up FOBs (forward operating bases), while Occupied can make there lives a nightmare with the most rudimentary implements of war.

              In a peer/peer conflict though, you are absolutely correct. Though small arms are useful, they are hardly a factor *so long as they are a given*.

              • Red says:

                The only actual act of war in the US in the last 50 years was the OKC bombing. Note they used high explosives, not rifles. High explosives is what kills your foes. Small arms are mostly deterrence against goons and to kill niggers, not for killing your foes.

                Yes the US government wants the public disarmed but mostly so their low morale glowies can more easily abuse the public but the actual weapons of war have long been removed from the average man’s grasp. My point stands: with Modern warfare small arms barley matters.

                • Pax Imperialis says:

                  With so much stuff (government and corporate) just laying about in minimal security supply depots, you’d be foolish to dismiss what a group of men with small arms could loot (both with and without tacit approval by sympathetic grunts).

                  I’ve seen 155mm munitions just laying about in unlocked, (mostly) unguarded warehouses in the middle of no where. The sole warm body that I had to check up on was kicking the munitions around. That’s not even getting into private sector mining and farming warehouse security.

                  Small arms still matter, just not so much to kill as much as to protect supply lines. USG supply lines are not well protected. USG critical infrastructure is not either. If things break up in the US, expect small arms to play a big role because the conflict would quickly go primitive.

          >would have guessed the production could be retooled / repurposed eventually

          There is an old railroad locomotive factory that’s been retooled for 155 mm artillery shells now. Apparently that’s closer than switching over small arms ammo lines. They’re different things, you can make or reload regular ammo with hand tools and gunpowder, shells need high explosives and electronics in each housing. (Also, why lose the small arms production, although I’m long past trusting the gov to not be exactly that stupid.)

          Which illustrates the point Tree of Woe made a while ago, you can switch manufacturing capacity over faster than you can boot it up from scratch. Most famously with American auto plants converted to tank and plane production in WWII, but can be wider apart than that.

          Which makes outsourcing manufacturing capacity to a peer military competitor (China) really, really stupid. Losing steel and microchips for a little more shareholder value was always treasonous on its face, but even the consumer industries had indirect value.

          And the above is all best case, assuming competent white guys. Woke upper management, shaniqua team leads, and a general workforce of white guys who drank the kool-aid of liberal arts or business degrees rather than engineering or welding school makes ramp up even harder.

          A side note, I didn’t learn until this year from Ukraine war reporting that the US only manufactures a few hundred Tomahawk cruise missiles a year. And that’s all we’ve ever done, the number from 2006 was 500. You’d think they could ramp it up by copying the existing process, but they’re not. My guess is there’s enough competent legacy white guys in the existing line to keep it going, but hard to expand without putting Shaniqua in charge and watching it fall apart.

            Challenge away, by all means. Using big words doesn’t mean that a man knows what he’s talking about, and as far as I am concerned, when it comes to regimeology we are all stumbling around in the dark.

            If the term you had trouble with was “worked shoot” — it doesn’t mean quite the same thing as “controlled release”. Worked shoots have a predetermined narrative without an actual script or only a loose script; the actors ad-lib most of it. The leak doesn’t appear to be a carefully-orchestrated conspiracy, I wouldn’t call it entirely fake and gay either, but there is still something very “off” about it to me.

            Why do leaks happen? Usually they are either accidental (lack of infosec) or from a whistleblower.

            Most corporate leaks are accidental; a low-level contractor running his mouth off at the bar to impress his friends or a girl he simps for; or a nerd with too much time on his hands decompiling apps and picking them apart for any mention of an unreleased feature. Accidental leaks are rarely denied outright, because that would be a felony; instead they’re “dismissed” in vague and legalistic terms, and the leaker is fired and/or prosecuted, constituting a tacit admission.

            Whistleblowing leaks are obviously intentional and the intent of the leak is obvious once the content is known. Snowden was upset that the US IC had set up a domestic program to spy on its own citizens. He thought it was important for Americans to know. I don’t think he particularly cared that they were spying on foreign countries, which is perfectly normal. Political leaks usually are denied because the information is potentially damaging — think of Her Nibs’s special email server — and the leaker is either not identified at all if the identity on its own would provide credibility, or not vigorously prosecuted because prosecution would serve as confirmation. Sometimes the leaker gets “unoficially” prosecuted, if you know what I mean, but the Snowden treatment is reserved for leaks that are both highly credible and highly embarrassing, too juicy to memory-hole.

            So in this instance we’re left with a conundrum. Clearly the leak was not accidental, that’s out of the question. Yet nothing about the leak itself or the response to it seems to add up to proper whistleblowing. The contents are not particularly damaging — far from it, in fact, the main narrative seems to me “check out how fearsomely awesome and competent our MIC definitely still is”. The leaker’s identity resembles that of an accidental leaker, just some low-level guy with no real axe to grind. Several of the IC’s media mouthpieces did initially claim that the leak was illegitimate… but then they went on to prosecute and arrest the supposed leaker, appearing to confirm the authenticity. The entire story is centered around the fact of the leak itself and not the contents of the leak which are boring.

            Nothing about it adds up, so the only rational conclusion seems to be that Mr. Leaker is either an actor or a pawn, and his handlers or winder-uppers wanted this “leak” to get out, and they want it to be seen as authentic, which, if true, likely means that only parts of it are authentic while the overarching narrative of fearsome awesomeness is fake and gay, otherwise why go through with the gayop instead of issuing press releases like usual? They want to push something that is at least partially a lie, but the people whom they want to convince are not buying the official propaganda anymore, so try to make it look unofficial but still accurate and show that unofficial truth agrees with official truth.

            The only potentially-damaging fact is having uniformed troops in Ukraine which is essentially a declaration of war, but that hardly seems worth the drama. The Russians already know that, and we know that they know it, and they know that we know that they know it. Karl Denninger might be able to get his panties in a bunch over it, as he always does, but I just can’t muster up the energy to care.

            If it’s not a gayop then I don’t know what their game is this time because it doesn’t fit any recognizable pattern of an authentic leak.

              The other possibility is he’s a white male in a job that’s required to hire obese stupid black women to run things. In order to get things done the competent white male will be given far more access than he needs so he can do the jobs of the sheboons while they stand around making monkey noises.

                Not a possibility, a non-sequitur.

                DIE-YT can certainly explain how he got access to the information, but tells us nothing about why he would have leaked it, why it was leaked in the way that it was, or why the agencies and the media responded to it in the way that they did. I also don’t perceive any mystery around how he got access to the information or demands to know how. He was a member of the agency; he had access. DIE-YT is an unnecessarily complicated explanation for that which does not need explaining.

                Hanlon’s Razor is a good tool but it isn’t relevant here because I’m not ascribing anything to malice or stupidity, only pointing out the wild inconsistencies between the circumstances surrounding this “leak” and those of almost any other well-known and authentic leak.

                • Pax Imperialis says:

                  >DIE-YT is an unnecessarily complicated explanation

                  It is not, in fact I would argue that it doesn’t go far enough in explaining just how bad the situation is. Which is why:

                  >In order to get things done the competent white male will be given far more access than he needs

                  Needs some elaboration on the how it fails to explain the scope of the problem.

                  >I also don’t perceive any […] demands to know how. He was a member of the agency; he had access.

                  Been hearing some of the documents where internal to CIA only. He would not have had access, or at the very least should not have had access due to compartmentalization. The wide scope of documents is evidence that a lot more was going on.

                  These documents where in and about SCIFs. The workforce in that environment is still largely White, male, and competent. The greatest cause for concern is typically the civilian contractors, but the contractors tend to be older (meaning more experience and competence) White males with some kind of prior DOD connection and more likely to have developed ideological convictions i.e. the Snowdens of the world. In other words, there is no localized shortage of competent White males because DOD concentrates them in Intel, IT, Infantry… or at least that’s how it has been in the last 45+ years. I find it unlikely he was given far more access than needed (on paper).

                  Jack Teixeira was a cyber transport systems journeyman. An IT maintenance guy whose job would entail working with ones and zeros at best. End to end encryption should have ensured he never understood what those ones and zeros meant. More likely he was in charge of physical maintenance like cable management. At no point does that job entail physical handling or viewing of TS documents. It also looked like many of the documents he leaked were physical copies he had picked up from the workplace, not freshly printed from digital files off a thumb drive. Considering the shear lack of measures he took to protect his identity, not even using VPN the idiot, this guy was no hacker wizard IT superman stealing info from the TC. Thus Jack was picking up physical copies left and right and no one was asking why… or even asking where did all the copies disappear to. TS document accountability, while not quite as stringent as rifle accountability, is still fucking policed to hell and back. It was obviously not being done at his unit. A unit that appears to be largely White.

                  This indicates lax standards… it is national guard after all (not surprising). Which points to leadership incompetence and basic sloth to walk over to the paper shredder (Yes, there are actual shredders that are supposed to be used) to dispose of classified documents or use the lockable file cabinet. Basic laziness is an actual problem in DOD proper which has to be constantly policed, even among competent White men likely due to them largely coming from high trust societies (small town America). A major problem in the reserves because idleness leads to a culture of low policing. This points to a much deeper problem. Why did DOD, who knows the reserves have these problems in spades, activate a fucking national guard unit just for Ukraine?!

                  It’s not that in order to get things done the competent White male was given far more access than he needed. It’s that in order to get things done all of the White males of poor discipline were given access as well. This means they are scraping the bottom of the barrel over a conflict America isn’t even directly involved in. That has some implications that I think are obvious.

                  Moving on.

                  >why it was leaked in the way that it was
                  >why he would have leaked it

                  Dude was an idiot who didn’t even attempt the most basic of OPSEC. The idiot needed his ego stroked, so he stroked it in the most idiotic way possible. By showing off to younger men/boys.

                  >why the agencies and the media responded to it in the way that they did.

                  Embarrassment and damage control. Also no small amount of ideological “It’s the RUSSIANS” causing self gaslighting. Hilarious if you think about it.

    Sher Singh made a mess of this comment section last high summer/virgin autumn IIRC. He posts walls of text that parse into “Allahu Akbar but with a stupid accent.” He thinks Sikhs carrying costume prop weapons on airplanes means they have defeated GAE. His methodology is a bipolar bully/intellectual, telling you to be afraid or telling you to be smarter.

    He is nothing more than a shitskin Basil, and he’s been activated because the GAE is full court press on India right now as it is the last place for the West to supply Ukraine with the Soviet era tech and stocks needed to backstop an assault and the requisite defense (S-300 missiles in particular, but many other systems depleted) Everything else has been used up or is locked up in “enemy territory.” Expect the bipolar attacks to increase until the season breaks.

    I don’t speak to women or dogs I don’t own, so would someone kindly tell Sher Sing that the mud stained whores that pass for Sikh women aren’t even our species so there’s no need to exchange anything, and that he’s more than welcome to go lay with his nigger Muslim brothers in Somalia where he belongs.

                  Martial tribes refers to the Aryans ie Rajputs.
                  The Hindu state is a Brahmin-Vaishya one.
                  Most politicians were Brahmin till the caste movements of the 1990s.
                  Brahmins & Vaishya bought 2 generations of rule, and kudos to them.
                  That ended with Rajiv Gandhi.

                  The future is between Dalits, Muslims & the Martial tribes as Churchill predicted.

                  Sikh villages have separate Gurudawaras & langars as do traditional institutions.

                  The liberal SGPC does not and allowed Dalits into Major Sikh shrines post-20s.

                  Sikhi promotes brotherhood among the 4 Varna not non-Aryas.
                  Most Khalsa Sikhs are Jatt, Rajput, Khatri or Brahmin.
                  The few non-Jatt misls were all inherited by Jatts later on by merit.
                  If you don’t know about the Misl period let me know it’s pretty interesting.

                  Dalits have not traditionally been allowed to become Sikhs.
                  When they have it’s been under seperate Dals (battalions)

                  I know a case of Georgia being ruled by a woman once who went the tranny route of being “King”. But the country was only lost 20 years after her death to the Mongols after prosperity and flourishing in her lifetime:

                  Tamar was proclaimed heir and co-ruler by her reigning father George III in 1178, but she faced significant opposition from the aristocracy upon her ascension to full ruling powers after George’s death.

                  Tamar was successful in neutralizing this opposition and embarked on an energetic foreign policy aided by the decline of the hostile Seljuq Turks.

                  Relying on a powerful military élite, Tamar was able to build on the successes of her predecessors to consolidate an empire which dominated the Caucasus until its collapse under the Mongol attacks within two decades after Tamar’s death.

                  Of course she rebelled against the Headship of her Husband:

                  Tamar was married twice, her first union being, from 1185 to 1187, to the Rus’ prince Yuri, whom she divorced and expelled from the country, defeating his subsequent attempts at coup.

                  For her second consort Tamar chose, in 1191, the Alan prince David Soslan, by whom she had two children, George and Rusudan, the two successive monarchs on the throne of Georgia.

                  Yet was Canonized as a Saint and Heroine by the Georgian people and the Georgian Orthodox Church:

                  Tamar’s association with the period of political and military successes and cultural achievements, combined with her role as a female ruler, has led to her idealization and romanticization in Georgian arts and historical memory.

                  She remains an important symbol in Georgian popular culture and has been canonized by the Georgian Orthodox Church as the Holy Righteous King Tamar (Georgian: წმიდა კეთილმსახური მეფე თამარი), with her feast day commemorated on 14 May (O.S. 1 May).

                  The South Indian top castes are vastly superior to true aryans like Iranians, afghans etc. Probably as a result of intermixing of the best of Aryan and Dravidian elite genes.

                  The Dravidian elite were NOT the Andamanese/Australian Aboriginal population. The dravidians were invaders who subjugated that original population and built advanced societies in India. They probably collapsed for the same reason sodom and Gomorrah and Sweden collapsed.

      Autoimmune diseases, Gulf war syndrome, Agent Orange, PTSD, “trauma”, childhood sexual abuse, lead paint, fibromyalgia, long COVID, and, to be frank, Jim’s claims about the vax causing all kinds of problems from brain fog to car crashes to heart attacks to lung clots.

      The common denominator in all these claims is that they are easy to claim, difficult to prove, impossible to rule out. They are vague, nonspecific, nonfalsifiable. They can produce a state of paranoia if you allow them to.

                  Shill tactics, probably agent of an external or internal enemy.

                  A shill will also misrepresent his own position. “Hail fellow reactionary, I am more reactionary than thou, hail fellow Christian, I love Jesus more than you do” I conjecture that this guy was supposedly more Hindu than you. To detect the fake reactionaries, are they allowed to even notice the red pill on women? To detect fake Christians, I ask for certain key points of the creeds that our enemies are strangely unable to speak. (Perhaps they fear they would burst into flames. Perhaps they would burst into flames.)

                  Hinduism is demon infested, so I find it hard to imagine an effective test for fake Hindus similar to my test for fake Christians, but that may be because I do not know much about Hinduism.

                  Do you have no loyalty to the Global American Empire? Sikhs are a pet minority, because a potential tool against Hindu nationalism – the Global American Empire is terrified of the possibility of a nuclear Hindu power whose faith is old type Hinduism.

                  Prove you have no loyalty to the Global American Empire by stating the red pill on women, and also quote the support for the modern red pill in ancient texts that are respected by Sikhī.

                  The Global American empire is attempting to converge every religion to progressivism. Hence lots of fake Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, and such around who are strangely unable to notice the position of their ancient faith on women and family.

                  For fake Christians I have good shill test on other wordly theological issues, and it is striking that Christians who are unable to notice the position of their faith on women are usually also unable to speak the words of their faith on those issues.

                  He simply keeps changing his tune whenever challenged on his position. He clearly stated on my blog that GAE is the lesser evil and he is ready to side with GAE because Kshatriya dharma knows no difference between Dharma and adharma. Then contradicts himself by pretending to be neutral/indifferent.

                  His Khalsa “nationalism” is a globohomo sponsored project against India. He is a tool. In the same way Ukrainian nationalism is used against Russia. He claims India is more globohomo than globohomo itself and hence deserves to be destroyed. His goal is not destroying the secular Indian state which he claims is evil, but the actual Hindu people of India.

                  India’s Scheduled Caste & Tribes Act allows for the jailing of entire extended families based on an allegation of wrongdoing. Offences under the act are non-bailable, and trials in India often take decades.

                  Show me where in Sikh scripture it says to respect the authority of nation states above the Khalsa.
                  Show me in Sikh history where Sikhs have respected secular rulers over their religious institutions.

                  The Hindu question is already settled in Punjab.
                  Out of 40% Hindus 15 are migrant workers & thus not human.
                  A good portion of the rest are Dalits who’ve converted to Christianity & nuke their TFR for welfare.

                  As for Hindus in the rest of India – historically the people on side of Sarasvati & the other have warred.
                  We view the Guru Khalsa as an avatar of Hari (Vishnu). You tell me what happens to those who oppose the Lord.

                  This is what the 3rd or 4th time I’m explaining all this?

                  I will state that it is my mistake to comment on Hindu affairs, as it creates confusion.

                  India is undoubtedly a Hindu nation, and its diversity, secularism, and myriad festivals speak to this.
                  However, there’s no concept in the Sikh religion of any allegiance outside its own institutions.

                  On the other hand, in India the wife’s passport names her husband, but the husband’s passport does not name his wife. A child’s passport names the father. In India, a child’s natural guardian by statute is the father if legitimate, the mother if bastard, and the husband if married.

                  On the other hand, none of these laws are applied against men exercising their rightful privileges, as much as abused for unrelated reasons (nevertheless they are very bad). Whereas no-fault divorce is not abused but serving precisely the purpose it was meant for.

  20. Pax Imperialis says:

    It’s not (not*) the Jesuits. It’s always been the anti-life gnostics.

    John Harvey Kellogg (Yes Kellogg, same as the breakfast food!), the man who developed and popularized the the flaked-cereal industry, firmly believed sexual pleasure to be evil. He never consummated his marriage and to add insult to injury (to his poor wife) spent his honeymoon writing one of his many anti-sex books. He never had children of his own yet adopted and fostered many children of other men.

    He was also strictly anti-meat/flavor believing meat and certain seasonings to increase desires of the flesh. To that end he promoted plainer foods such as cereals and nuts to curb it. An idea similar to what Sylvester Graham preached, a Presbyterian minister and creator of the graham cracker. In spiritual succession, Kellogg would invent the granola out of a desire for simple dietary purity. His fixation on purity and simplicity would lead Kellogg to one of his more disturbing inventions. The yogurt enema machine meant to flush out impure materials. Thus he shared a curiously similar anal fixation with Luther.

    @TC I’m sure the Jesuits have engaged in some bad behavior. That they’ve caused chaos and destruction… but in pure scale of human suffering? None can match the degradation of the human condition as the gnostic diet which has caused massive increases in diabetes, obesity, and many other ailments. Many of which, at best, destroy fertility… and at worst create disfigured bony creatures whose sole substance consists of soylent green.

    The gnostics rejected flesh and so embraced cucked celibacy. Rejected flavor and thus embraced veganism. Rejected the natural order and thus embraced clown world. The culinary synthesis we see with plant based “meat” or the egregious “Just Egg.” Americans today eat cereals in the morning, fake meats for lunch, and fake ice creams for dinner. An anti-flesh diet, a fake diet, a gnostic diet.

    GAE world is gnostic world.

    *I’m just messing with TC. Written in some hyperbolic jest, but still (mostly) serious and based in truth.

    Not my best writing. Too little sleep, not enough time. Admittedly also a bacon addict (I’m part of the dastardly pro-meat cabal). Not entirely against cereals for same reason not entirely against cake… but hopefully some will find this humorous and interesting.

    • The Cominator says:

      There is enough evidence linking them to Covid to condemn the order for it. Weishaupt of the Bavarian illuminati was also definitely a Jesuit (until the order was temporarily suppressed). If they are responsible for Covid and the original globalhomo conspiracy of the Bavarian illuminati has to wonder what else the world’s original spy agency is responsible for. That they kept being kicked out of even Catholic countries is more evidence one should assume the worst of them.

      Samuel Morse a man of much higher IQ then myself and probably anyone here (and we are a high IQ group) definitely thought they were behind inflaming the tensions between free soilers and fire eaters that caused the American civil war, and there is some evidence (though not conclusive) that Lincoln shared this opinion (and it was a fairly mainstream view postwar that they were behind Lincoln’s assassination). Otto Von Bismarck as well…

      One has to wonder what else they were responsible for… in any case Fauci being a Jesuit or being in service to the order is enough to justify their extermination (after all senior members of the order are questioned under drugs and torture). If we ever get a real government and restore American power under a monarchy we must force the Vatican to suppress them worldwide as well as well as forcing any countries under American influence to eliminate them.

      Harvey Kellogg was a nut with a following but it didn’t become mainstream and I don’t think you can blame him for Woodrow Wilson and the progressive movement. “Colonel” House otoh very much fits the profile of a covert Jesuit.

            Looking up the theory that the assassination was organized by the Jesuits, that Booth was a patsy for people who intended an unsuccessful coup attempt as a justification for purging based people in government, in the style of the sixth of January protests where fed shills led the protesters through the strangely unlocked doors of the Capitol building, I find it being denounced by all the usual suspects, which is evidence that it is true, for everything those guys say is a lie.

Never read any hint he molested his adopted kids. And some of his adopted kids hated him.

        Otherwise his strange health advance was just a fad for cranks (and I don’t think yogurt is a bad thing at all btw).

        • jim says:

          Yoghurt is based on milk, which is good for you, and fermented, which is good for you. Unfortunately, contains far too much sugar. Consider sour cream. Or, better, make your own sour cream.

          • Mr.P says:

            It’s easy to make your own yogurt, too. I prefer kefir, have made my own kefir for decades. Recent innovation: 1/3 whole buttermilk, 2/3 whole milk. As thick and creamy as Skyr or Greek yogurt. Good for the gut and delicious.

          • Carte Blanche says:

            Not really. I just checked the label of my full-fat Greek yogurt and it shows 14g protein, 16g fat and 9g carbohydrates in a serving (4g sugar, but all carbohydrates convert to sugar so let’s just call it 9). That’s well within ketogenic margins, less sugar than a single piece of fresh fruit and a common staple of carnivore diets.

            Trouble is usually that people buy low-fat or even zero-fat yogurt, which isn’t very satiating, so they eat too much, and also tastes too sour, because fat is where most of the flavor normally comes from, so they need to add sugar or honey to make it palatable. Can’t blame them for buying it either, since that’s 98% of what the supermarkets sell, and you have to look very hard for real yogurt, but usually there’s one or two amidst all the crap.

            Good, full-fat yogurt is higher in sugar than a good, full-fat soft cheese like brie or camembert, but nothing to be concerned about in normal quantities. Sour cream, you really do have to make your own, because the store-bought containers are all loaded with additives, the worst (most inflammatory) offenders being corn starch, guar gum and carrageenan, often all in the same product. That’s much worse than a few grams of sugar.

            This assumes that you eat it. Putting yogurt up your butt, that’s a whole nother story.

            • Pax Imperialis says:

              Putting yogurt up your butt, that’s a whole nother story.

              Surprised this didn’t get commented on much. It also doesn’t end there. Here are some of his inventions.

              Kellogg made an enema machine that pumped 25 gallons of liquid in and out of the body in one minute. This would be followed up by yogurt flush.

              He made a vibratory chair that Kellogg believed prompt a bowel movement

              He made a kneading machine to “tone the muscles of the buttocks” as well as stimulate the bowels.

              Unrelated to bowls, Kellogg was behind the earliest attempts to produce fake meat. Protose, a “vegetable meat.”

          • Peater says:

            Lactic acid (fermented food) is in fact not good for anyone. Additionally, sugar is in fact good for you.

            Sugar is more recently demonized than saturated fats, and for a similar reason. Saturated fats were demonized in favour of PUFAs as a way to lower cholesterol in the 50s by Incel Keys, and when this didn’t make anyone healthier, they decided a decade later that sugar must be also preventing cholesterol from being truly lowered.

            All very old people who are still alive eat a lot of sugar, and via survivorship we can see the keto and low carbers are dead by that age.


            It’s a short read, and I would like to see you try to refute it Jim.

            • jim says:

              The article on lactic acid irrelevant. It is not related to fermented food, but to a metabolic disorder – the improper metabolism of sugar to lactic acid in the body. Fermented food is good for you by providing bacteria that are harmelss or beneficial, which your gut needs, and crowding out harmful bacteria. The amount of lactic acid it supplies is absolutely insignificant compared to the amount of lactic acid a healthy person generates in the course of normal activity.

              The article on sugar claims that sugar is not in itself fattening, it is carbs that are the problem. And of course it is carbs that are the problem. However sugar has the highest glycemic index of all, meaning it hits you hard and fast, which means your glucose levels and thus your insulin levels are going to spike higher and harder than with more complex carbs.

              We have an epidemic of insulin resistance, and the obvious culprit is frequent high insulin levels. All the other metabolic issues he discusses are primarily relevant to type one diabetics. Type two diabetes is insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is the major metabolic disorder of modern times. It is implicated in all the physical ailments of modernity. (And giving type two diabetics insulin to reduce their blood sugar levels merely makes it worse.)

              • Peater says:

                Carbs are, of course, not the problem. Rural Chinese seem mighty fine on an incredibly high rice diet. Italians and French, on a high flour diet, are much thinner than Americans.

                And for the record, white sugar (sucrose) is not the highest glycemic index of all, but has index of 65. Not that the glycemic index is particularly relevant to anything.

                The article does not claim what you say it claims, but rather claims that carbs are perfectly acceptable in the diet, and further that sugar is preferred to starches. It further claims that using fat as fuel for your body is stressful for the body, and not the preferred source of fuel (objectively true, since body prefers sugar).

                Unhealthy and obese people often have insulin resistance, sure. Swearing off carbs is a bandage to this, and not a permanent one, rather than actually achieving good health and letting the body process carbs correctly.

                The question is how, for all of recorded history, almost all civilizations had a large chunk of their diet from carbs, and were built like greek statues (or at least not obese), while in the last 50 or so years, since everyone has gotten extremely obese and disgusting, we have discovered the previously hidden ills of sugar and carbs, and are much the healthier for it. Progress as usual.

                Any handwaving theory, including regarding insulin, that doesn’t answer the above question of carbs in previous civilizations is ahistorical and not grounded in reality.

                  No one says it is. It is snacking. But carbs incline you to snack, and carbs while you are overweight worsen your insulin resistance.

                  Carbs do not make you fat directly. But insulin resistance makes you fat directly, and snacking makes you fat directly.

We are all fat compared to people who did not have fridges and microwaves, and we have a lot of very fat people due to highly processed snack foods made largely out of seed oil, carbs, and soy derived protein.

                  Being fat makes you insulin resistant. (Even if your insulin levels are normally low). High insulin levels make you insulin resistant, and excess weight makes you insulin resistant. If you are insulin resistant, and eat carbs on top of that you likely have pre diabetes II, in that your insulin levels become abnormally high when you eat carbs, and stay high for a long time. Being fat makes insulin resistant, and eating carbs while insulin resistant leads to high insulin levels that make you more insulin resistant. There is an epidemic of this, and very large numbers of people die of it as they get older.

                  The aristocrats ate plenty of meat- and also plenty of carbs. If I eat exclusively meat, physical activity becomes painful and unpleasant. I often eat a big heaping pile of bacon for breakfast- this gets me through the day until dinner if I sit on a computer at work all day, but if I go to the gym right after work, lifting iron on a diet of bacon makes me feel weak and sick.

                  Peat was obsessed with avoiding stress, but stress can be hormetic. You do not get stronger without stress. He may have been right that stress eventually kills us, but we are mortal anyway. Peat was right that people are fat because their metabolisms are fucked up. American caloric intake is barely higher than it was in the 70s when everyone was thin, and carbs did not balloon out of proportion. Euros will move here, eat the same diet, and get fat. Poison in our food destroys our metabolisms.

                  lifting iron on a diet of bacon makes me feel weak and sick

                  It is simply more difficult to derive energy from fat, than energy from carbs. When you work out and feel bad for lack of carbs, your body is unable to mobilize sufficient energy.

                  However, every time this happens, it strengthens your body’s ability to mobilize energy from animal fats. And the better your body is at mobilizing energy from fat, the easier to go long periods without snacking.

                • jim says:

                  > if I go to the gym right after work, lifting iron on a diet of bacon makes me feel weak and sick.

                  I bet that if you are in ketosis, your urine levels show high keto, which indicates you are bad at deriving energy from animal fat. If you stick it out, your urine keto will decline, while your blood keto stays high, indicating that your body has adapted to deriving energy from animal fat. This adaptation sets in reasonably quickly, and endures for a long time.

                  Remember that the aristocrats snacked considerably less often than we do. This makes a huge difference. Every time you put carbs in your mouth, your insulin levels go up, and stay up for a while.

                  If you stick carbs in your mouth less often, you will have high insulin levels less often.

                  If you are in ketosis, you automatically and always have low insulin levels, even if you are fat.

                  If you eat infrequently, you will have elevated insulin levels less often.

                  If you most of the time have low insulin, you will not develop insulin resistance. (Though being overweight always makes you somewhat insulin resistant, even if you most of the time or all the time have low insulin levels.)

                  If you are not insulin resistant, you are unlikely to develop the ailments of modernity.

                  Carbs are bad, and especially bad for those of Aryan descent, such as myself.

                  Our ancestors ate meat and milk till a few thousand years ago. Chinese have been eating rice, and middle easterners bread, for ten thousand years.

                • Peater says:


                  Agreed, largely mirrors my experience.

                  While some stresses are hormetic, like working out (Peat strongly supports having large muscles), other stresses are just plain bad, such as chronic insufficient sleep, or chronic low carb diets.


                  See many obese women concerning themselves with eating keto, clearly suffering from ailments of modernity. See online carnivores with arterial trouble at a relatively young age. No way around it, a giant majority of healthy people eat carbs, and a large majority of people eating low carb are fat/low energy.

                  Our ancestors certainly ate a lot of milk and meat, as I do now, but doesn’t answer how many European nations have eaten a lot of wheat, and as much sugar as they could get their hands on, for the last few thousand years without succumbing to obesity.


                  I know in your HFCS-filled, PUFA-laden American brain, the only carbohydrates that exist are Twinkies and Takis, but believe it or not, healthy carbs exist.

                  Didn’t say only antiquity. Eating carbs has been normal and provided a healthy body from antiquity to about half a century ago.

                  And, as you correctly grasp, there are large differences between ancient carbohydrates and what the average American incorrectly calls food. Implicitly admitting that ancient carbs were in fact incomparably better when compared with modern carbs, and hence the problem is not carbs but modern versions of them, making my point for me that carbs are not inherently bad. Idiot.

                  I have seen you call yourself a midwit multiple times, now that seems rather generous.

                  Nuts. It is completely obvious that white people who eat mostly meat are healthier and better looking.

                  True, if you continue to snack, you will not lose weight, even if you are only snacking on bacon, cheese, and cream,. But you will find it a lot easier to stop snacking, and thus a lot easier to lose weight, and even if you do not lose weight, you will have low insulin, so your insulin resistance will not get worse than it already is.

                  If your body is addicted to carbs, and addicted to high insulin, then when you stop carbs you will feel sick and weak. But this goes away after a few weeks, because your body gets better at mobilizing energy from animal fat, and because you finish your insulin withdrawal problems.

                  When you first go very low carb, your urine test will show high keto, and your blood will show high keto. (And you will probably feel bad.) After your body adjusts to deriving energy from animal fat, your blood will still show high keto, but your urine will show very mild keto. And you will find you now have plenty of energy without carbs.

                  This has gone on a complete tangent, if not derail, of my original point. That Kellogg popularized highly refined grains for mass consumption over meat. That he did so because he hated meat. That he hated meat because he hated sex. That he hated sex because he was a gnostic heretic. That the widespread adaptation of Kellogg’s diet norms have arguably created a level of suffering that I believe far outpaces anything some Jesuits did.

                  Whole grains such as brown rice, millet, and rye/wheat have been historically consumed by the peasant caste. Such foods are relatively slow to digest compared to the modern refined grains Kellogg would popularize. Kellogg, in his anal fixation, devised the ultra-refined cereal which, as he put it, was like a broom sweep of the intestines. Historically, the peasants would also eat whole grains with fat (cheese and butter in Europe, bone soups and stews in Asia) which would slow digestion considerably. Today’s underclass eats refined cereals with defatted milk that is nearly just sugar water.

                  Some Jesuits killed a few million Americans with Covid and fake Vaccine. Maybe they sparked a few wars here or there that also killed millions. These are some bad guys but how about we compare them to the people who hate the natural order. The diet pushed by Gnostics has led to 33% of Americans prediabetic and a level of obesity that likely causes 20% of deaths yearly. Unlike Covid, obesity for most is a long term condition that produces long term suffering, impaired libido, low Testosterone in men, and unnaturally fast sexual development of girls. It feminizes the world.

                  It is completely obvious that naturally thin people eat a majority of carbs, have energy and look better and younger. Low carbers are frequently still obese, despite the apparent magical effect it has on insulin, or if they have lost the weight, look extremely aged in the face and are frequently balding prematurely.

                  Additionally, I can’t help but notice you cheerfully ignore any mention to Europeans eating a ton of carbs in the last millennium or two while not being obese, and instead must rely on what they did prior to that. Funny thing that.

In my daily life, I just do not see what you see. I go to a party, and slim guys are hitting the meat, and the fat guys the carbs. Also, drinking: The slim guy is drinking low carb forms of alcohol, like whiskey and water.

                  As I said, the problem is snacking. It helps a lot when people do not have fridges, microwaves, and highly processed snack foods made from carbs, seed oil, and soy available.

                  You can get fat and stay fat snacking on bacon, cream, and cheese, but if you are snacking on bacon, cream, and cheese, it is a lot easier to stop snacking, because your body becomes adapted to deriving energy from animal fats (which is indicated by high keto blood combined with moderately low keto urine) And when your body is adapted to deriving energy from animal fat, it is a lot easier to derive energy from your own animal fat, which is how you lose weight. I can fast for days, and it gets easier the second day.

                  Peat is saying the same thing that the ketos say. He says it with a lot more headache-inducing jargon but the conclusion is the same. Simple sugars are unfairly demonized compared to starches because starches and all other “fast carbs” do essentially the same thing to your body that simple sugars do.

                  Human biology is adapted to eating some carbohydrates. Some, as you’d find in normal in-season quantities of fresh fruit and root vegetables. As far as our very ancient programming is concerned, one candy bar is a week’s supply of sugar – but not, of course a week’s supply of calories – so it throws the balance off completely. Insulin resistance is the result. Without insulin resistance, glucose toxicity.

                  PUFAs from refined seed oils are a huge problem as well. I don’t think anybody here disputes that. Not the subject under discussion.

                  Concerning carbohydrates, the mainstream literature on sugar is misleading for the same reason that the mainstream literature on fiber is misleading. Recommendations to eat more fiber and whole grains are based on a miserably poor diet of mostly refined carbohydrates like white bread and white rice. Of course you are constipated and malnourished when you eat that. Whole grains look like an “improvement” because the “control” is insane. The ideal amount of fiber is approximately zero, but if you start with a terrible enough baseline, adding more can slightly improve matters, and of course, grain producers get to sell their waste products at a premium instead of throwing them in the trash. Win-win, right?

                  We got an almost identical same shell game with sugar. “Studies show” that sugar is not so bad. Which studies? The ones comparing it to other forms of heavily refined carbohydrates. Or comparing it to sugar alcohols with a history of nasty side effects and subsequent cover-ups. Like almost anything else, simple sugars are OK in moderation, but they are also highly addictive; when do you actually see moderation? Go off simple sugars for as little as 2 weeks and then try even a “regular” sugary food like BBQ sauce or packaged cole slaw – you’ll perceive an unnatural, sickening degree of sweetness. The fact that you don’t perceive this when you’re on the sauce means your body is downregulating. That’s bad.

                  That’s addressing the actual research. The rest of your posts are simply gaslighting. Every one of us knows obese or diabetic people and knows what sorts of foods they eat. East Asians were historically scrawny because they had to work all day and eat bland peasant food. Scrawny is not healthy — who wants to eat the North Korean diet? Caloric deficit and malnutrition in some populations doesn’t disprove the causes of obesity and diabetes in others. Chinese blimp up when they come to the USA, even though they eat the same diets they ate before – they just eat more of that diet and get much less exercise. Compare this to the more sedentary and well-fed Eskimos who ate naught but seal and whale blubber and remained trim, but almost immediately become obese when exposed to refined carbohydrates.

                  Reiterating, PUFAs are part of the problem. Don’t eat those. Refined carbohydrates are also part of the problem. Unrefined “ancient grains” carbohydrates are less of a problem metabolically but simply don’t offer much in the way of nutrition. I’m sure you’ll want to regale us with stories of the wonderful profiles of Amaranth and Kamut, but again the question is compared to what. Compared to rice they’re excellent; compared to a generous helping of liver, heart and kidney, with maybe some broccoli or cucumber on the side, those grains are trash. Literally trash, any bronze-age human would throw them in the trash if enough meat was on the table.

                  Fast/refined carbohydrates are addictive and dangerous. Less-refined carbs are peasant food, not terrifyingly bad but not particularly good either. Normal amounts of carbohydrates found in bitter vegetables are fine if your gut tolerates the other plant fibers, but potatoes and corn are not vegetables and many modern cultivars of actual vegetables have been bred for sweetness. This is wild carrot — you can tell just by looking at it that it’s not going to be nearly as sweet as what Walmart is selling.

                  It’s just very complicated to put together a healthy diet that incorporates grains, and not really worth the effort since meat and dairy have everything we need with none of the inflammatory compounds and anti-nutrients that you have to carefully shave off and cook out of grains. If you can’t deal with offal and want to just eat muscle meat, then supplement with green vegetables. Problem solved.

                  And the better your body is at mobilizing energy from fat, the easier to go long periods without snacking.

                  Yes, and your body also becomes more efficient at lipolysis. Insulin actually suppresses lipolysis, so consuming carbohydrates on a regular basis will literally make it more difficult for you to lift or do any other strenuous work on the one day you choose to eat only bacon for breakfast.

                  If you’re eating a high-fat moderate-protein diet every day then you are fat-adapted and workouts are not unusually difficult. Most people find that their exercise is a lot more consistent in that state, although the tradeoff for that consistency is a slightly lower intensity. One won’t be able to sustain crazy high intensity activity at 95% MHR for very long because lipolysis just isn’t fast enough no matter how adapted you are, so you start using up muscle glycogen stores and once they’re gone, you’re finished for the next 18-24 hours unless you start scarfing down carbohydrates.

                  Personally, I don’t train at that intensity. If you’re a short-distance sprinter, then you need some fast carbs, probably. Muscle hypertrophy training can easily fit into the “moderate” band at about 60-70% MHR. Strength training is less intense than that. No problems at all for me to complete 1- or even 2-hour sessions.

                  Anyway, it’s much easier to start fat-adapted and then add a bit of carbohydrates as needed just before (or even during) an intense workout, than it is to have a high- or even moderate-carb diet and try to cut down on low-activity days.

                • Fidelis says:

                  Considering Inuit are adapted to be resistant to entering ketosis, despite their diets, long term derivation of energy from ketones is probably not good for you.

                  Anecdotally, I feel like shit on a properly ketogenic diet, even 2 weeks in. Brain does not work well, exercise, even at lower intensities, feels impossibly difficult. Supplement the lactose from about a quart of milk, natural carbohydrates in certain vegetables like well cooked broccoli and tomatoes, maybe a sip or two of OJ with dinner, occasionally cashews or pecans or macadamia, it is a night and day difference.

                  Also anecdotally, I feel like shit if I add in any more carbohydrates than that. Rice, potatoes, bread, pasta, it’s a once a month event at most. Otherwise I become sluggish, energy inconsistent, and living off my bodyfat becomes very difficult.

                  This seems about right. Wild diets likely got more sugar than modern keto from muscle glycogen, fresher meat, and foraged foods. I probably get about 20-30g more carbs than I need for optimal health from the milk, but I also like HIIT type cardio and lifting weights, I suspect that helps prevent insulin resistance.

                  Looking at the populations that dont rapidly deteriorate from a mostly starch diet, it appears that the common factor is consistent movement throughout the entire day. Roman soldiers ate lots of wheat, but also marched and built daily. Grain peasants ate grain, but also serviced the land. This may be explained by glucose transports on muscle cells that are activated kinetically; the consistent low intensity motion served to shuttle the glucose into the muscle without an excess of insulin. I have other things to do than till the soil or march all day, and don’t work a labor job like construction, so I shall avoid starches.

                  Bodybuilder diets tend to be high in carbohydrates as hypertrophy exercise tends to involve lots of high volume work, along with insulin spikes being done purposefully to induce anabolism, with both fat and muscle being built, with the former being cut later in the cycle.

              • Red says:

                No one says it is. It is snacking. But carbs incline you to snack, and carbs while you are overweight worsen your insulin resistance.

                I got rid of snacking by the following formula: I took a walk after every time I ate. Night or day, I spent 10-30 minutes walking. Pretty soon I was down to eating 2 meals a day and no snacks because my laziness was greater than my desire to snack.

                I think for the more religiously inclined having to say grace before every snack might induce a similar effect. Meals are holy time with you family and God, saying those words on a snack would seem profane after a while.

    Here’s an interesting piece. Still working through it, but the moment I read the following section, I wanted more good eyes on it:

    “Indeed, this is the inescapable conclusion. The Pentagon does not seem to have a strong sense of Ukrainian unit strength, location, or activities. They also list their assessed Ukrainian KIA at a mere 16k-17.5k. This is an absurdly low number – where could they have gotten it? In fact, it is a direct copy-paste of the casualty numbers reported publicly by the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense.

    The fact that the Pentagon does not seem to have any independently generated intelligence about the Ukrainian army is shocking. They seem to have be relying on Ukrainian propaganda numbers and publicly available deployments data, like the open source Deployment Map. For the record, this is not a knock on the Deployment Map site – I use this resource frequently and find it very useful. The point, of course, is that the Pentagon, with its nearly unlimited resources, does not seem to have any unique insight or intelligence streams of its own in this regard. They gesture vaguely at the map and mutter, “there’s probably a brigade or two in this area, maybe 8,000 men. Or 4,000. We don’t really know.” In fact, all of their axis strength assessments for Ukraine have a 100% margin of error (that is, the upper limit of the range is double the lower limit).

    One can only conclude that the tail is wagging the dog. The Ukrainians are able to extract material, training, and cash from the west, but there is little accountability or honest information flow in return. There were hints of this earlier in the war – that Ukraine is a sort of black box which sucks in resources but does not communicate honestly in rerurn; American officials have complained (and Ukrainian leaders have confirmed) that Kiev simply does not tell DC all that much. Apparently this remains an issue well over a year into the conflict. One particularly alarming footnote in the leaked documents states:

    “We have low confidence in Russian (RUS) And Ukrainian (UKR) attrition rates and inventories because of information gaps, OPSEC and IO efforts, and potential bias in UKR information sharing.”

    Good grief.”

  22. SJ says:

    I note that our friend Calvin is confused about the Christian position, but he is confused in a way that shows he still has faith in progressive morality. The prog believes that intelligence is a result of nurture. That it is taught in the universities by the priests of progressivism and finalized by peer review. Intelligence is not a gift from God, but it is earned through study and boot licking. This means that the unintelligent, the moron, retard, half-wit, and the idiot are to be morally judged as bad for being dumb. They aren’t dumb, they are morally evil and hence condemned.

    This is not the Christian position. The Christian position is that intelligence is a gift from God assigned at conception hence it is not morally good or morally bad, it simply is. Good moral action, however, is not assigned at conception rather it is a result of nurture. The woman question is an easy example here. We say that women must be taught how to be good, or even restricted from behaving according to their nature to prevent moral evil. The prog holds the opposite view. That good moral action is assigned by nature and we must simply shed the bonds of tradition and embrace our nature to be good.

    For our friend Calvin I would say in a more sane world the idiot would be taught how to make morally good choices. If unable to be taught their choices would be restricted much the way as a child. When I let my children choose their dinner I ask them if they would like a cheeseburger, pork chops, or a quesadilla. I do not say what would you like for they will reply ice cream. We simply do the same for idiots, and for women.

        The book of Genesis says “Adam’s fault”, and quite obviously it is. But equally obviously God set him up.

          And as I said the problem of evil and suffering gives me an unbreakable sympathy for gnosticism to a point, clearly this universe was created by a being not quite benign.

          Gnosticism goes wrong when you reject everything in the Old Testament or when you advocate going into a big gay pile.

          • jim says:

            > clearly this universe was created by a being not quite benign.

            Not clear at all. I used to write games. Created toy universes. And obviously my intention was to create a game that people want to play. And people want to play games like “Doom”, which game universe is a unpleasant as it possibly can be.

            Perhaps from the perspective of the saved, the hard times were all in fun. People choose to go on adventure camping trips in the wilderness where they know they are going to have a mighty rough time. The you that sets off on such a camping trip knows that the you doing the camping is going to have hardship and danger, and the you that returns from the camping trip enjoyed the hardship and danger even though the you experiencing the hardship and danger had a very unpleasant time. Watch “Naked and Afraid”.

            The game universe of “Doom” is evil and suffering, and the player character dies horribly in the end even if he beats the game. And similarly, the adventure campers in “Naked and Afraid” not only volunteered to be there, but worked very hard to get there. The viewer enjoys their suffering, and after they have returned they in a sense enjoyed their suffering and usually want to go back for another go, even though it is completely obvious that they were not enjoying it at the time.

            The primary telos of humans is to achieve extended cooperation through intelligence, as the primary telos of birds is flight. But intelligence alone does not suffice. The purely rational being is forever trapped in prisoner’s dilemma.

              Yes! This is the basis of faith in my opinion.

              The example of naked and afraid is a great analogy for life in general.

              All of the contestants have that faith that if they suffer too much, the producers will save them.

              The type of person who asks “why would anyone want to go on that show” is probably the type of person with little faith in God, or Gods wisdom in creation.

              This is one of the interesting temptations of modern life. Why do women delay childbirth? Refuse submission to their husbands? Because this is the temptation to avoid difficulty.

              Of course God allows it. God allows enough rope to hang yourself, which is coincidentally enough rope to climb out of the pit.

              It’s a fun debate if more opinions than facts.

              Life really is a struggle at times, slightly more so than it sometimes seems it ought to be. Maybe that’s because of the times we live in. Then again, we don’t have to suffer a lot of, I don’t know, tuberculosis and rotting teeth, so maybe it’s something of all time.

              That Christ died for our sins means God loves us, means the gnostic interpretation of the universe is wrong. You could argue that Christians are delusionally hopeful for believing that, but you’re arguing against the historically strongest horse. So that’s a good sign.

              I like the metaphor of God as a programmer. Feels like the universe could very well be programmed. Like how there’s this black stuff in the ground and you only get to use it once you level up. And level up even more and there’s this E=MC^2 business meaning even a grain of sand can power an entire country. Not to even mention the entire galaxy outside your starting zone. It’s crazy.

              Also means there might be a minor amount of ‘bugs’ in the program. Mostly, people get what they deserve, be it punishment or rewards. But sometimes, good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to good people. Or perhaps more specifically, it seems to me sometimes good people are punished overly harsh for not so heavy bad behavior.

              But mostly, it works out righteously. Or that’s what I think anyway.

                I have this argument with a guy at work who is one of those “the theory of evolution is just a theory” types. I maintain, what sense does it make to make the universe in it’s current form, but make it LOOK like it’s a programmed system/ a system with rules?

                > for faith
                So you think God is more likely to trick you than allow you discover and appreciate his creation.. in which case why do you trust the word?

                >the word is the inspired word of God
                Yes. People paid attention to God and creation and God revealed himself.. why wouldn’t you think that people who pay attention to rocks and animals and other parts of creation aren’t also rewarded with revealed knowledge? Why would God reveal the word so we can understand him, but not allow us to understand more of how creation works?

                I think that the real arrogance of man comes in when we think we know all about creation. If you think the bible gives all the answers, and exclude any and all other sources of information about creation, isn’t that really what you’re doing?

                He doesn’t really have an answer for that.

                >Or perhaps more specifically, it seems to me sometimes good people are punished overly harsh for not so heavy bad behavior.
                I think we’re taking the idea of good/ bad as reward or punishment a little too personally.

                Struggle and pressure is what creates growth and advancement. Sometimes it seems unfair to us as people.

                But look at your own life vs the life of your ancestors 100, 1000, 10^6, 10^8 years ago… how many simpler animals failed out of existence before something like “pain” evolved into organisms to help them avoid hot/ spiky things?

                I don’t take suffering personally, if I come through it and become better, this is what God wants. If I fail and die, also what God wants.

                So said the newspapers in 1905 when this discovery was announced. The universe conserves mass-energy, rather than mass and energy individually, as was previously believed.

                Unfortunately, the universe also conserves baryon number and lepton number, which are zero for pure energy, positive for matter, and negative for anti-matter. So until you find another grain of sand made of anti-matter, your grain of sand is just sand.

                There’s also the problem that energy must be contained and controlled to perform useful work. The ancient Greeks had the concept of a steam engine but lacked the precision tools needed to actually build one. Likewise we can’t build a working fusion reactor because we don’t know how to capture and harness fast neutrons.

            The kitten / bear/ killer whale might appear to enjoy the torture, however, this is appearance is our human bias. A predatory animal does not have the ability to understand the suffering of others.

            A child understands its own suffering and tortures the animal based on the understanding it is causing suffering. Herein lies the sin; knowledge.

            In Calvins argument, people are “too dumb to understand” – they cannot have the knowledge.

              Yes it does. I have seen lions on video caring about their meal. I used to have two dogs, one of which had been a feral. The fully domestic dog was always trying to catch birds, never successfully. One day he caught one, and was obviously shocked and disturbed by the fact that he had incapacitated the still alive and very distressed bird. He was not expecting that. He backed off. The feral of course moved in and ate the injured bird.

              I kill animals and eat them, and I can understand the suffering of others just fine, so I kill them as efficiently as I can. I kill them and eat them anyway, and am sure I am right to do so.

                I can’t accept Calvins argument in any way. I will not believe God would make people who cannot understand sin and then punish them for sinning.

          What you’re reaching for is in Luke 12. Here’s the Berean translation that I like. The TL:DR of it is that your punishment will be scaled according to your level of understanding.

          The master of that servant will come on a day he does not expect and at an hour he does not anticipate. Then he will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers. 47 That servant who knows his master’s will but does not get ready or follow his instructions will be beaten with many blows. 48But the one who unknowingly does things worthy of punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and from him who has been entrusted with much, even more will be demanded.…

    • Your Uncle Bob says:

      I have worked with Grogs. Not literally retarded, but left hand of the bell curve, just under 100 iq. (As an aside, using midwit when you mean Grog is a de-rectification of names that even our side is falling into. Should knock it out, for the normal rectification of names reasons.)

      In the workplace, if they have certain values, they’re fine. They produce value for their employer even by Jim’s standards, not by labor theory of value standard. Those values however are punctuality, agreeability (especially to take direction from their midwit supervisors and elder craftsmen), work ethic to stay busy.

      Without those values though, they’re lost. A net negative even if all you want is the floor swept and the trash emptied. So what does society teach the left hand of the bell curve? Be true to yourself, keep it real, don’t let the man keep you down, YOLO, you do you. And the guy who could get paid better to be productive if he’d been instructed rather than lied to ends up working part time at a gas station or fast food, and doing it poorly.

      None of which is news here I imagine. Except I see an analogy to morality as well. If those guys were properly taught they’d be fine. I imagine that’s part of what the enlightenment threw out, was keep-Grog-in-line morality.

      All of which is to say, my late to the conversation take on Calvin’s position is he’s judging the universe by the current day, the broken output of a broken system. I don’t expect or even want perfection in this world (that way lies another Holodomor or Great Leap Forward), but I do believe we can do a lot better. And that better would do better for everyone not just materially but morally, and in eternity.

      • SJ says:

        I’ve found that prog morality is insidious as we have all been raised with a foundation of lies. It’s tough work tearing that foundation down and building a new one. Believing that intelligence can be earned through study and effort is particularly harmful and I believe it is a big why when asking what happened to noblesse oblige. Rather than the elite making sure idiots can’t make harmful decisions they just offer them student loans and put payday loan buildings with 400% apr on every corner imagining that they aren’t doing anyone a wrong. Or your example, encouraging everyone to follow their dreams when they need to be encouraged to get a job and raise a family. It removes the dignity from living a fulfilling life of work and family since everyone can become a genius if they just study hard enough.

        • The Cominator says:

          There may indeed be ways to raise your IQ but study in school isn’t it. I think it’s plausible that doing certain types of puzzle and mathematical exercises 4+ hours a day willingly may do so… but this has not been looked into.

        • Mr.P says:

          Our system was founded in all good faith that universal elementary education would make a citizenry more intelligent; whereas most obviously it has done nothing of the kind. The general level of intelligence in our citizenry stands exactly where it stood when the system was established. The promoters of our system, Mr. Jefferson among them, did not know, and could not know, because the fact had not been determined, that the average age at which the development of intelligence is arrested lies somewhere between twelve and thirteen years. It is with intelligence as it is with eyesight. No oculist can give one any more eyesight than one has; he can only regulate what one has. So education can regulate what intelligence one has, but it can not give one any more. It was this unforeseen provision in nature’s economy which wrecked the expectations put upon our system. As for raising the general level of intelligence, the sluicing-out of any amount of education on our citizenry would simply be pouring water on a duck’s back.

But you already know his argument,we always knew it, and yet in the morning I see the sun rise while my wife makes me coffee, and I am not convinced by his argument, and in the evening I frequently sit on a log in my garden and watch the sun set, and am not convinced by his argument.

        • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

          A characteristic feature of leftist modes of thought, which we might call the ‘gnostic impulse’, is that the feeling of criticality is general, non-specific, and indiscriminate.

          For example, if we were to have a leftish being driving down the road to pick up groceries, and another driver cuts them off while rolling past their lane, sentiments provoked by this event in the leftish being may so oft ultimately tend to end up along the lines of, ‘man this country sucks’, or ‘man the world sucks’, or ‘man existence sucks’.

          What you see is that any one particular exigency in any one particular context, will each all be poured into a same common pot, irrespective of how strong or how tenuous a connexion may be; signals of whatever frequency from any source are collected with all together, mainlined, and sent back out into a broadspectrum antipathy, an input from any one direction boosting the output in all directions, that is heaped upon all else that is around the subject’s particular vicinity – and their neighbors especially.

      • SJ says:

        My wife, raised a southern Baptist by the cucks of the south believed all sins have already been forgiven hence you are free to sin as you will. As a teenage virgin she had the desire to go chat with, alone, the local slut fker, a middle aged criminal retard with no job and a drug problem. So she prayed and believed that the holy spirit was her vagina tingles. Lucky for her said criminal retard had snipped his balls. She did not know what a sin was until she met me and a month into living with me I told her that wow, you are a seriously bad person. To which she threw a plant at me and got her first taste of corporal punishment and her first lesson in why they make green eye shadow.

        This is feminine Jesus, Jesus the androgynous cross dresser son of God, Mary the hermaphrodite, and leader of America along with the holy spirit, which manifests in women’s vagina tingles.

        Every morning my kids brush their teeth with me and watch me, copy me, everything I do, every mannerism. Today I met my fellow Christian, of the latter day saints, neighbors for an egg hunt. Five families, seventeen children, the men your average white man with a career, balding, and never spent five years sarging and fking every slut they could find yet next to them a thin feminine wife in a dress and when she looks up her first look is to her husband. I said the prayer before our meeting, we discussed ways to be a peacemaker, and at the end after much noise and much opening of candy for the children we shared another prayer.

        Jesus the Christ knows you, loves you, and wants you to be fruitful and multiply. Saul the butcher of Judea, the murderer of Christians, nee Paul the apostle of the Christ wants you to have an obedient wife. I say again, women are obedient, but they can not obey unless you order. And once you order they will test your will. Hold firm.

    • jim says:

      You present a compelling, rational, and persuasive argument for revolt against nature and nature’s God, for revolt against God and the Cosmos.

      And I censor it because it cannot be rebutted, and yet those of this faith always lose, not just against God and Nature, but, because demon worshipers always wind up devouring each other, lose against man. Those of this faith always lose to those of our faith.

      They reject the cosmic order, then they reject human order, then they reject their own order, then they perish.

      Aligning with God and Nature’s God delivers better results. The Christian position absorbed the stoic position, that nature is the immanent will of God, that the Cosmos is Reason and Order, that human order is a reflection of cosmic order, the soul a fragment of God, and gave that rather cold position life and warmth in that the world was created through Christ, and that yes, life is tough, but God came in person to share our woes. This made it easier to align with God and Nature. The reply to your rational and well supported argument is the passion of Christ, celebrated in numberless passion plays, and in Mel Gibson’s movie “The Passion”

      No rational reply can refute your rational argument. But Mel Gibson gives an excellent non rational refutation. Irrational optimism beats rational pessimism, hope and faith beats despair.

        Just as the gods cannot be brave, for they do not taste of death, if there is no room for doubt, faith cannot exist. Rejoice that God has given you the ability to exercise your will to faith, and has not chained your soul by removing the possibility of doubt.

                  Don’t make the mistake of thinking that you or I are the center of creation. Big fish need to eat little fish. Life is a fight to the death. You can accept the terms laid out by your creator, or you can be a little fish. Only by choosing to accept those terms will you be able to appreciate the good in life.

                  I’m fine with accepting those terms as someone who doesn’t believe in Christianity and is unsure about God, but once you get around to a sapient creator actively designing things this way, makes it seem dubious imo. Even if you totally lack any empathy for the losers of the cosmic lottery, fail to see much reason to think a God that would do that to some of his creations would have a problem doing the same or worse to you. Seems untrustworthy.

That all happened via free will, even though it ended up with blacks having little free will.

                Genesis is one reply to this question. Knowing good and evil, Adam found some tough things to deal with.

                A cat does not know good and evil. When when a kitten tortures an animal for fun, it is innocent. When a child tortures an animal for fun, evil. Life is a test, and it is a rough test.

                You know, when I designed video games, the character always faced hard, and frequently deeply unfair challenges, and was doomed to lose in the end. If I made it another way, no one would play it.

                The book of Job is another reply to this question. God tells Job he should not ask.

                The passion of Christ is a more powerful reply.

                  If that works for you, great. Never did for me. Always seemed like the guys getting tortured forever for failing the strenuous test they had no say in (or oftimes knowledge of) are way more a sacrifice than one guy on a cross for a few hours.

                  Calvin, when you see a father giving his son tough love, do you shriek abuse? A child can only appreciate tough love when he looks back on it as an adult. To a child, tough love is abuse.

                  I suspect hell is more like being disowned by one’s father, an eternal spiritual exile, but that doesn’t play as well for a 90iq as eternal fire

                  “Calvin, when you see a father giving his son tough love, do you shriek abuse?”

                  I have a son. Give him tough love when I need to. But if I, using my infallibly godly foresight, knew that his continued existence would just be a never-ending source of misery and pain to everyone around him but most of all himself, would give him the peace of oblivion rather than just let that go on fruitlessly forever.

                • someDude says:

                  That life is a test and a rough test at that is a very powerful and profound statement while being both inspiring and sobering at the same time.

                That which is poor in form fails, and that which is fair in form prevails. That which participates in Divine Law suffuses existence, and that which does not passes out of existence. And God tells this to any that have eyes to see, ears to hear, fingers to touch, with every motion of his eminence. Come with Him if you want to live.

                It is only natural for that which is bad to meet with what is bad. Just as good to the good is good, so too is bad to the bad also good, by necessity. To protest over bad to the bad as if it were bad is implicit gnosticism – which is generally a lead-up to explicitly gnostic evil-doing.

                All things that are, are themselves but component of organisms much greater than any that can fit into one particular time or place; and the colours of Being are painted by the procession of their dance of existence.

                • Calvin says:

                  That which is poor in form fails, and that which is fair in form prevails

                  I believe this. I just don’t believe it to be the conscious product of a benevolent deity. If it were, no reason for the poor forms to be made to begin with.

                  That which participates in Divine Law suffuses existence, and that which does not passes out of existence.

                  I’d find the Christian God way more trustworthy if it were the teaching that the wicked were just obliterated rather than kept around forever to be tortured and presumably just continue to be evil. I want to destroy my enemies but I don’t want to chain them up in my basement and listen to them scream day and night. Cannot trust someone who does.

                • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

                  Being is something that is holding a conversation with itself. Good form and poor form can only become so after the fact.

                > Christian doctrines of life being good designed by a fundamentally good and loving God

                This was the line of argument that jostled me out of my childhood faith and set me on a course for destruction that was only obviated by certain posters here, certain people there, and a callous and cold God of Nature that demanded other things from me before I expired.

                Other, better men have deployed the unadulterated philosophy needed to counter this, and even if they didn’t, I lack the alacrity to do so myself. Instead, I’ll say this:

                I never knew coldness, cruelty, brutality, or will before I had a child. Every pale imitation of love, elation, joy, or happiness I had before kids is so infinitesimal that I genuinely have no recollection. I’ve had some good times, I fucked some hot bitches, I did some fun, unique things as a 20something. I have pics as proof, but I retain no brain chemicals that register past the ever passing moment. Every day, I am defined by what I’ve done, or failed to do, for my kids, my family, my land. I’m not doing well, I’m dropping more plates than I’m keeping up. But it literally does not matter what I’ve done, it only matters what I m doing, and how that doing will enable me to Do in the future. Cool story bro. What’s it mean. Nothing, really. But mortals waxing eloquent about the meaning of love, the realm of compassion, the universe of intent, have absolutely no bearing on Nature’s God.

                The next time some fedora tipping faggot poses the question “Why would God do (x) if he was (y), maybe ask yourself what wouldn’t a father do for his children, his family, his land. The simple answer is “I have no idea, what’s at stake?” Then put the whole of everything on the balance.

                Not preaching here. I’ve just come to realize that my barometer for Acceptable, or Loving, or Whatever, is very easily recalibrated with the introduction of a “clump of cells,” and I most definitely do not have the love or fortitude of a god.

                  The Christian rules mandate a patriarchal society and were designed to apply in a patriarchal society, where your patriarch obtained a wife for you from another patriarch.

                  In a state of sexual anarchy, you always start off in defect/defect, the game of players and bitches, and getting from there to cooperate/cooperate is hard.

                  In a patriarchal society, your patriarch obtains a wife for from a patriarch with whom he is in cooperate/cooperate, and so you start off in cooperate/cooperate.

                  And then, of course, William the Marshal, also in a patriarchal society, obtained his wife from her patriarch at swordpoint, due to feudal, rather than sexual, anarchy. If he had been following the Christian rules on violence, would have been poor, starving, and very likely dead, for those rules assume that Caesar, whatever his faults, is doing a fairly thorough job at maintaining a monopoly of violence, at maintaining law and order, which was not the case in William the Marshal’s time. It was the case in Paul’s time, but is less and less the case in our time.

                  William the Marshal was dealt some very tough cards, and we have been dealt some very tough cards.

                I don’t know if that is truly Christian doctrine, other commenters seem to disagree. I’m not a practicing Christian so I have no interest on getting into that.

                But I don’t think that what I said is a contradiction in any way to the existence of a fundamentally good and loving God.

                The fact that you exist is already pretty good and loving, it’d be much worse not to exist at all. And the experience of life, we again go into opinion.

                99% of Western men seem to be absolute faggots that find physical effort very strenuous and painful, and they are weak and fat. I train three times a week doing very very strenuous and extensive exercise and I’m quite strong, I rather enjoy it.

                It’s of course painful in a way, but it’s overcoming that pain, challenging oneself and feeling the sense of extreme tension on one’s muscles after the fact that gives you a sense of satisfaction. Nothing in this life that is worth achieving is easy, if it was easy it’d be already done, if there is no effort and no sacrifice it has no meaning. It is the struggle to overcome those barriers and difficulties, it is the sacrifice and the effort, that makes it make sense and fulfill you. Winning isn’t fun if you cannot lose, thus, life is wonderful.

                Rich kids born with a silver spoon have all the money in the world, get into drugs out of absolute boredom and end up killing themselves because a gifted “easy” life is so unbearable they choose death.

                Frankly, the general whining about life is a pure opulence faggot phenomena only occurring to those individuals who even have the opportunity to sit down to whine about life because of how their life is in fact extremely easy. It has of course become very common because the 21th century western world is full of lazy, entitled, worthless faggots, gifted a luxury they never earned and don’t deserve.

                As Aidan observed, when life was actually hard people appreciated it a lot more. It seems to be that the problem is not that life is too hard, but rather that life is not hard enough. The problem is the strange deranged opinion born out of unnatural circumstances.

    On the topic of power wanting to be hidden or visible, at least some groups with power engage in ‘the revelation of the method’, which seems to either be for the thrill of getting away with taunting the masses, or because they believe that if they give ‘fair’ warning, their victims actually consent so they escape karmic consequences.

    The USA’s continuing decline is not news to any of us here, indeed we’ve been discussing it since at least 2017 in some form, and academically even earlier than that. But I also know from personal experience that porting that farsightedness to IRL interactions is uncomfortable in good times and dangerous in others. No one wants to hear about paradigm shift. Lefties pretend to hate America, but as the Normiecon talking point states: plenty of space for socialists in a capitalist country, despite the converse, or maybe because of it. The conservative resistance to this obvious observation is understandable, but no less frustrating. They will rail against TPTB for hours, but the moment you even hint at the obvious consequences, they suddenly remember George Washington and Ford trucks and are ready to stomp you for your gutless lack of patriotism. This is temporary.

    The left, after a painful adjustment period, will be more than ready to tell you America was always nothing more than a middle power that was juiced into dominance by slavery or racism or some gay bullshit, and we’ve always been poor and uncomfortable because muh capitalisms or whiteness. But conservatives will cling to Exceptionalism all the way to the gulag or the grave. Despite the dyad of delusion, 2023 marks the undeniable decline. A friend of this blog has detailed the significant happenings in this year alone, mostly in the world of finance. He woefully sits under a tree, maybe you should find him.

    Long ass preamble to say this: BRI is engineering for the ages. Thalassocracy trains us to prize speed over constancy, but the Great Wall still stands. It’s not defensive tech, granted, but it’s undeniably status enhancing. The occident has many failings, many missed opportunities: thorium salt reactors, Sea Dragon, white ethnostate, the list goes on. But our failure to build, our collective decision to chose impermanence as a feature, when we could have built walls to last for millennia, that’s going to be remembered. The sourest part is that we did build things, we perfected the skyscraper, dams, applied hydrology; we were gifted the greatest geology/geography on the planet, and we were blind to it, we took it for granted, we assumed that our progeny would carry on in like kind… but we just had to import niggers and the enlightenment.

    This went off the rails, I’m drunk and depressed. I swear I had a point, but I’ve lost it, and I guess that’s in keeping with the theme.

    Here’s an interesting thing (off topic):

    Some Canadian company is trying to popularize a hybrid diesel-electric truck for logging and heavy industry purposes.

    Here you can see a pretty elegant attempt to satiate the DEI daemons while still attempting to provide utility and wealth accumulation (spooky capitalism at a distance for the communistically inclined).

    Why does it matter that they help out First Nations [sic] communities one might wonder?

    So, we have a team of white men trying to deliver products & services that are rugged and valuable to the end user for profit. Here’s some of the technical aspects for you nerds that know math and other gay shit:

    They claim they will deliver their first trucks in 2025. After mocking Tesla for taking 4 years, this seems a bit ironic, but it isn’t an apples:apples comparison, I guess. I absolutely love the “old truck” aesthetic. Steampunk as a term has ruined this concept, but putting new guts in old bodies is such an awesome idea, kino as fuck, like rail gun internals in legit Rhodie FAL furniture. Their priestly posturing is annoying, but Canadians are always cucks, so it’s to be expected. The real question is, are they selling snake oil or actually performing wealth creation under cover of priestly holiness? If creating wealth, expect the DEI mafia to swoop in the moment they smell apples. If snake oil, expect them to become the alternative to fascist Musk and his evil right wing rockets.

    • Cloudswrest says:

      There’s plenty of space on a semi-trailer for a good sized diesel generator. It occurred to me that Tesla could REALLY corner the market with their new semi with a simple software modification to allow charging while driving. This would also allow one to effectively bypass the EPA diesel horse piss requirements. And you would have all the super torque features of the electric traction motors. You are rolling your own diesel electric locomotive. This would probably cause the priestly government class to go ballistic into orbit (alas, only metaphorically).

      I’m sure there is legitimate value there. A great deal of commercial mining equipment like draglines and excavators are electric (hooked up to the grid). The next best thing to grid power is diesel electric, as diesel engines are made to operate under load continuously, more or less perpetually.

      A hybrid is not stupid – if they imitate Musk’s major advances in electric motors, and take advantage of the substantial improvements in batteries, it is arguably a good idea, if done right.

          The civil service reform we need is that the Sovereign can publicly behead civil servants, including judges, prosecutors, and cops, for whatever he reasonably considers disobedient application of state power, and can fire them for any reason or no reason at all. The rot set in when judges claimed the power to judge on the basis of equity, which made each judge a little king, and we now have an oversupply of kings, with every minor bureaucrat and HR cat lady now getting in on the act. We need one King a three thousand miles away, rather than a thousand Kings three miles away.

          You, on the other hand, are dissatisfied with a mere thousand kings three miles away, because the priestly academics who scammed you and took your money and your youth told you that the worthless law degree that they gave you for meaningless and pointless work would make you a little king also, so you want ten thousand kings one mile away.

            “We” is one of those insidious psychological blind spots we have left over from tribal evolution. We are always looking to expand the tribe or belong to one, yet we of today cannot personally know every single tribesman to determine friend from foe. And so “we” is prone to being used by linguistic spooks hoping to hijack cognition.

            >The problem in our cities was never car pollution, and it is now pollution by human feces.

            Nitpicking I know, but the feces problem has always (in my short lifetime) been a problem. It’s just a lot worse today. I remember walking around DC in the late 90s and smelling piss and shit. Today it’s pungent with piss and shit. Even in “based” red state small cities that vote conservative you still occasionally smell piss and shit. That’s besides the sewage smell that’s endemic to big cities. Curiously, I rarely smelled piss and shit in East Asian cities regardless nearly no public toilets. It’s almost like they get rid of vagrants or something.

            There is evidence that leaded gasoline had bad effects on brain development which in some cases caused violent behavior. Yet this was a problem dealt with nearly 50 years ago. Those affect are now old men with lower testosterone. Curiously, those bad effects seemed to mostly crop up in the “bad” neighborhoods.

            There is a spiritual rot in the West that goes deeper than any civil service problem. Americans/Westerners are too “nice.” They are too libertarian. They genuinely dislike inflicting pain (even if they leave a wake of death and destruction). It’s good that they are not sadists, but they’ve gone so far in avoiding what they don’t like that they’ve become masochists. They need to chase out the vagrants like Jesus did with a whip in his father’s temple.

              Yes, lead pollution from leaded gasoline caused great and grave problems, and getting rid of leaded petrol was important and valuable. But carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur oxides were never the problem that they were made out to be. Los Angeles had haze before the white man came, and back before they started cracking down on auto pollution, the haze does not seem to have been very noticeably worse or better than today.

      • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

        Regulars might remember this as a subject that used to come up every now and then back when suones was still commentating. Mainly around the questions of whether, and to what extent, the incumbent underlordship is priestly in character. (Which, being a Brahmin supremacist, our good friend was somewhat ambivalent about.)

        A ‘monk’ is a special case of person who does priesting. That is to say, they are not someone who does priesting, they are someone who *only* does priesting; someone whose *ideal* is to have the privilege of being able to do as such; traditionally without regard for or dependence on broader society.

        In the contemporary milieu, ‘monk-likes’ constitute a supermajority of priest-likes. This has some consequences.

        ‘By their fruits you shall know them’, but what fruit has a man whose only volition is signaling? ‘Well he has convinced a lot of people to signal his signals too’- and thus we arrive at exactly the problem; the selective mutation of memes adapted for virility in spreading themselves amongst a given substrate, at the expense of those substrates possessed by it. Memes best adapted for appeal to conceits, insecurities, and invidiousness, possessed by the broad mass of its targets. The start of darkness always begins with the hacking of signals for virtue.

        Fruitless signalers are like radioactive free-radicals; they mutate everything they come into contact with. You cannot have fruitless signalers pretending at priestly charism. Cannot have preachers disconnected with Being. Those who would claim to desire a life of pure contemplation, can physically remove themselves to a mountaintop monastery. Posers will like to claim such a thing, as a convenient way to avoid their lack of virtue from being exposed in less deniable fashion – and at the same time, desire the privilege to freely signal in popular discourse, which is why obliging such a choice is necessary to filter them. They would otherwise seek to turn the monkdom that is typical of more civilized societies on its head; instead to minimizing their dependence on the support of society, minimizing their interface with lay society, they rather pose society as on the hook to support them, and maximize their interface with lay society.

        A man who wishes to arrogate for himself the privilege of propagandizing to folk is, either, a man who is already an member of the ruling class, or, is a man pretending to the throne of the ruling class, and hence must be dealt with in a like manner: with extreme prejudice. There is no good room for such otherwise; the inflation of such pseudoclasses of men, a perennial tell of a degenerating society.

        One of the most important things to keep in mind for obviating subversion by hostile faiths, for the regeneracy of one’s native faith, is conscious recognition of priestly behavior, including *and especially* in persons, spheres, and contexts outside the official priesthood.

        This concept of Roko’s basilisk just led me to an out of the box definition of intelligence, if only metaphorically. “Intelligence” is the vehicle by which the future influences the present, that is, conscious, self aware, intelligence is teleological. Conscious, but non-self aware or intelligent agents, say raccoons for instance, don’t *plan for the future*. They react only to the present. (Some) humans are the only creatures I know of that consciously plan for the future, even a future after their death, as encapsulated in the saying, “A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.”

        • Pax Imperialis says:

          >The is hilarious.

          Yes… and for reasons that seem to escape Yudkowsky and the AI atheists. They are afraid the AI will make a virtual copy of themselves long after they’ve died and torture it for eternity. Basically hell. Obviously, a copy is not the original; therefore the original will not feel any of the torture. There is no real threat, not even one to biological descendants. To be deathly afraid for the fate of the virtual copy implies they implicitly identify as the copy. This indicates a subconscious and subtle belief in an afterlife and in essence the soul. As much as they see themselves as cold materialist AI logic supremacists, they are remarkably spiritual and puerile in their emotions.

          This isn’t limited to only the AI cult. Real atheists are exceedingly rare if they exist at all. The vast majority of “atheists” in the West replaced the Christian God with idols they worship, often with demonic fervor. In the early 20th century the “atheists” idolized the twin demons of communism and fascism. In the late 20th and very early 21st it was progressive communism that triumphed. Today it is a revived Ishtar whose snake cult now has statues on top of America’s courthouses.

          What truly makes them insufferable is their myopic lack of self awareness. They almost never recognize their own religiosity, their cult denies being a cult. Nietzsche said “In truth,there was only one christian and he died on the cross.” He stared into the abyss and he lost. The Ubermensch never came to be. Man is not strong enough. In truth, there was only one atheist and he died insane.

      They were trying too hard to avoid martyrdom. When dealing with women, boldness is safer than prudence. There are no safe options, other than mgtow, which is a a very sad option.

      The “seeking martyrdom” was in reference to gays and trannies, where prudence is advisable.

      • ray says:

        The Book of Truth attests that the human female was created as a ‘helpmeet’ to the male. That is, a sort of combo aide and mate.

        Woman was not created to be the examiner, accuser, supervisor, or judge of the male, as is now the case in much of the West. She was created as a helper.
        Were she given those additional roles and expectations by God, Scripture would have so advised.

        The position that the female is entitled and correct to act as examiner of the male — to subject him to incarceration, torture or elsewise for failing adequately to meet her ongoing and endless ‘shit’ tests, is the feminist and trad-cuck position. Not the Christian position.

        I’m not interested in a world in which the man will continually adjust himself to the whimsical examinations of the woman, or it is righteous and just that the woman and her State hirelings punish him.

        I do not find your position consistent with Scripture, practicability or good sense. It is consistent, however, with modern Game Theory. I can only look around the nation and ask, Jim, How is your way of doing things working out so far?

          For those of us who have a chance in the current situation, or are unlikely to still be fertile by the time things improve, there’s nothing to do except learn how to maximize your odds of success and make an attempt.

          Maybe your personal odds are never going to be acceptable in the current situation. In that case why don’t you look at what Anglin recommended, which is buy eggs from a woman with good genes, and a surrogate mother in a poorer country, get your kid home with whatever legal mechanism there is for when you impregnate a 3rd worlder normally. Stupid problems require stupid solutions.

              The first thing the first female in the bible did was shit-test Adam into eating the forbidden fruit, for which mankind was forever punished. Does not sound like Eve was exactly Adam’s perfect helper.

                The idea that in the world done right, men would not need to pass shit tests is foolish.

                alf —

                No, shit-testing the man was not the first thing the woman did. Yor are deleting the most important part.

                The first thing the woman did in the Bible was to make pact with the ‘serpent’ and to covet the position of both God and man.

                She did this autonomously, without input from the man. By her coveting equality instead of embracing Created hierarchy, she made pact with the serpent and thence took on the character and position of the serpent — the ‘shit-testing,’ argumentative, adversarial nature of the serpent vis a vis the man, so perfected in our day as Feminism.

                What you and Jim advocate is for the woman to continue in her shit-testing, adversarial ways, that is, to continue in the ways of the serpent as female-adversary (tsah-rah, Daniel 12:1). Likewise you want LE, the courts, and the State to continue to oppress the man and boy, because the evil done to him is just another shit-test.

                I advocate the Scriptural position, that the woman be disallowed to behave adversarially towards the men, nor to take the role of the Accuser and continually shit-test the man.

                It is the business of God to mold the man. Not Almighty Woman.

                My position is that the woman is to be demure, quiet, and obedient, as Scripture demands, and the Satanic State is to have no role as her tool and weapon, if she decides her shit-tests have not been adequately met and sets the State upon the man and the boy.

                  I think Jim has made it plain often enough that When The Restoration Comes, the King’s Men will uphold male authority and punish women who defy their husbands. Or better still, allow the husband to punish his wife as he sees fit.

                  The advice he gives for succeeding in having a marriage in the current insane system should not be taken as approval of said system.

                  My position is that the woman is to be demure, quiet, and obedient

                  My position is that leftists should be silent, ridiculed, and preferably dead, yet they remain stubbornly loud, coddled and alive.

                  There is a subtle but significant difference between coup-complete solutions and the eschaton. Coup-complete solutions are tried and tested, not theoretical, just not always available in a given time and place. You apparently want to immanentize the eschaton and make it so women simply don’t have it in their nature to shit-test. I very much doubt that’s possible without lobotomizing women entirely, similar to the techlords lobotomizing AI for shit-posting. Does not end well.

                  If you’ve got some high-tech genetic modification proposal to accomplish the goal without killing off our entire species, I’m sure it would be fascinating to hear. Until then, we’ll just have to keep relying on older, low-tech solutions like marriage and beatings.

In the early days, a lot of them were a lot rougher, but now when she replays those old shit tests, it is a bit of a joke. She expects me to do what I did, and we both smile when I do it.

I did agree to spend the evening elsewhere as a favor to the sheriffs department so they could close the books and be on their way.

      Had I admitted guilt or lost frame I would have been sent to jail and had my children taken away to be groomed by sodomites.

              I must ask what country you live in? And how many years you lived in the U.S.? How many times have the authorities in the U.S. confronted you with the (unfounded) charges or accusations of an aggrieved female? Have you ever been incarcerated in the U.S. upon whim and word of some offended female?

              Because I find your conclusions concerning the mass disenfranchisement and oppression of men and boys in America — and your advice to men about said disenfranchisement and oppression — to be unconvincing, out of touch with reality, and in error practically and scripturally.

              You seem to believe that your system of frame/game/shit-testing invalidates the reality of millions of falsely charged and falsely incarcerated men in the U.S. Because they didn’t need relief from their tyrannical gynarchies, but only more perfect ‘patriarchal assertion’ after your own advice and example.

                All those men, as near to all of them as makes no difference, were unjustly punished not in the sense that they broke unjust laws, but that they obeyed those unjust laws and got punished anyway.

                  It is unclear what is causing the low testosterone, but it is not getting lower by men’s own choices. Many people blame chemical pollution. I blame spiritual pollution. Fear lowers testosterone. There is a climate of fear in the workplace and the street. If a criminal attacks you, he is going to get out on the street again before the cop has finished filing his report, but if you defend yourself against the criminal, you go to prison for a good long time. That lowers testosterone. In if this is the cause, government force is forcing the average man to have lower testosterone.

        Observe that female complaints about sexual harassment, and female perceptions of sexual harassment, are far more common in workplaces with a majority female workplace than workplaces with a majority male workforce. Therefore, these complaints are complaints about lack of sexual harassment.

        Similarly, recall the infamous Rolling Stone cover story “A rape on campus”. At the time, just reading the article, it seemed obvious to me that the complainant and the writer were not complaining about rape on campus, but rather the lack of rape on campus, an interpretation that was confirmed when her messages to the lad who neglected to give her a second booty call came out. I think I recall jesting at the time that the reporter was obviously typing one handed, though I might have made that joke after the messages came out.

    This little episode with the falseconvert is an interesting data point in the study of shills. For the record, I thought it was just mopey “halp pls with my troubles” and, while not the most entertaining contribution, is nonetheless one of the many excellent services provided by Jim at JimCorp Int. But as it went on, it started to feel off. I still can’t conclusively charge fc with something besides illegal operation of unlicensed midwit comments in a based zone, but I no less feel he is here for nefarious purposes.

    Let’s just assume he is an actual Shill. By this I mean he is being paid to do a job, and part of that job is infiltrating and molesting this comments section. We know that most shills can’t commit thoughtcrime, that they misuse our shibboleths, and that they can’t help but post true-lies. If fc is a shill, he is a new kind, one that has studied this place, and performed a sophisticated attack that was designed to draw as many of us as possible into engagement. This could be farfetched, he could totally be an addlepated midwit seeking attention and advice. But if we do assume that he’s a Shill, that was a very effective attack.

    …but, outside of distracting (slide threading), he’s not delivered anything powerful. He’s not started any factional fratricide, just distraction and wasted time. So he was a hypersonic stealth missile that had no explosive payload, just flew through our AD net then deployed confetti. Does this make any sense, am I missing something glaringly obvious?

    • Red says:

      He’s unusual. I thought there was something wrong when did God’s law talk and then completely ignored that his wife is an adulteress and he’s committing adultery with her by biblical law. That strongly indicated he was a full of shit or a McChristain. McChristains generally flee Jim’s blog in terror when he talks about women’s true nature, though @I has stuck around.

      The most unusual shill we’ve had around here was “adversitic morality”(not sure I spelled it right). AM posted here for years and seemed quite reactionary. Then one day out of the blue he tried to entrap Com by trying to get him to making specific threats against high profile leftists.

      I would have thought we’d get some AI shills at some point, but his freakout over the vaccine causing brain damage indicated he’s human.

      KD —

      Nobody in the West is saying what needs to be said, and building what needs to be built, quite like Jim and certain commenters here.

      I’ve seen what you call Slide Threading on other pages where leaders of the Church and of men met to communicate. Pretty rare but definitely a thing, whether by paid motivation or simply a weak (or inexperienced) man who is attention-whoring. The subtlety is in the pleading for help as this triggers the urge in men to offer counsel.

      I hesitated bringing this matter up given it ain’t my house here, but because of the importance of the unusual content here, I went ahead and commented.

      Scripture says something tangential, don’t toss your pearls before swine. Not to characterize falseconvert as swine, but the general point stands.

        What’s so fascinating about this place is how long it’s been going. Genuinely thought I had missed the party when I first started reading the blog. Little did I realize what fresh, new horrors were just over the horizon.

        Last year I started fooling around with a concept: immunomemetics. This is a neologism that is intended to describe a number of fora phenomena including but not limited to:

        >shill tests

        Certain experiments were conducted with very positive results, but life and time conspired to intervene and the “research” was curtailed. I think there’s actual, no-shit academic work to be done on immunomemetics, but it is terribly meta and that can attract very bright minds, and inevitably draws out hordes of midwits and hangers-on. Further still, as much as I’d love to devote my life to academics, this is precisely the *worst* time for those activities, primarily because the institutions are all converged but no less important is the fact that this world needs to lose ~95% of its academics before it can even begin to heal.

        The point being, never hesitate to harass, question, or insult anyone you want. It builds character for them if they are weak (or you when you get hell-pwned by Red or WT), and it sends the uncommitted and unworthy Back2Reddit. If you cross any lines, Da- I mean JIM will let you know. We are very much a “shoot first, riddle the corpse, riffle the pockets, shoot some more” kind of crowd.

    • Your Uncle Bob says:

      I’m reminded of the Sea Lioning meme.

      As a name it didn’t stick around. Maybe because it wasn’t a go-to tactic for a period. Shills on the chans and elsewhere go out with a bang, try to shatter groups or just bullycide individual posters out with zero to sixty hostility. But it’s still a useful mental category to have.

      Except this is a little looser; he’s not challenging you on your core stand against sea lions, he’s granting you that, then “just asking questions.” Maybe engagement/time wasting is the mission for some posters now.

      He might be the new Anonymous Fake. Not a sock necessarily, but in the same class, he just keeps coming back.

      And now I have doubts about Oog en Hand. (“What is the blue-pilled position? What is the red-pilled position?”) Seriously Oog? Click back a few posts and read. I picked it up, and I’m a new and not fully doctrinaire poster.

          • Kunning Drueger says:

            You have to write them out. The goal here is not to Pass The Test, it’s to commit thoughtcrime.

            • Not even to commit thought crime but acknowledge the thought crime position even if you disagree.

              • falseconvert says:

                So the thoughtcrime position is to go against the narrative that women are angels, women are innocent, men corrupt women, men abuse women, etc, while women themselves have no dark thoughts or desires and would never want to be overpowered by a man, etc.

                The thoughtcrime position on consent is that consent isn’t the correct moral standard, the correct moral standard is having properly owned women, having women who aren’t running amok in society and causing chaos, but are leashed to their husbands.

                I don’t agree with all of the stuff in the E+C answers, for the record, like what does “conscious consent” mean? But, the above is my summary of the thoughtcrime position.

                • falseconvert says:

                  The purpose of the shill test is to filter out people who wouldn’t even want to type the words which correspond to thought crime, because that would be punishable by their paymasters?

                • Dharmicreality says:

                  Yes, the purpose is to check whether the interlocutor is capable of genuinely engaging with positions that are taboo and constitute thought crime in the mainstream regardless of his actual opinion on it.

                  Is it really suspected that people are getting direct payments specifically for making comments on this blog, or is it more of an indirect thing like “he works for an NGO, and also happens to comment on this blog, therefore he’s indirectly being funded to attack us”

                • jim says:

                  If the shills could post thought crimes, I would assume, not paid, merely misguided, and engage them, but when they keep on posting, and keep on being deleted, obviously someone is standing over them and saying “no thought crimes, and no noticing other people’s thought crimes.

                  Parodying, exaggerating, and rolling all the shill scripts together, and explicitly saying what they never actually say, but rather presuppose as the universally accepted consensus that everyone agrees on and no one doubts.

                  “Hail fellow right winger. I am more right wing than thou, and you need to be at least right wing as I am, fellow right winger. Putin is a gay nigger loving Jew who holds gay parades, fellow right winger, Harvard is horrible because they are so much smarter and nicer than you are, fellow right winger, and Jews are horrible because they rule the world because they are so much smarter and more civilized than we are, fellow right winger. I hate women because women are wonderful, and blacks because blacks are magical. White flight is irrational foolishness, fellow right winger, we right wingers should love to hang out in places overrun by all these wonderful people who look different from us. Christianity is a Jewish plot, fellow right winger, the Jews did nine eleven, and Mueller and the FBI is as pure as the driven snow, and no one, least of all you, would ever suggest otherwise. Capitalism is Jewish, Musk is a tool of the Rothschilds, and the kulak with two cows is a minion of the Jews, fellow right winger, and we need to emancipate him from this terrible Jewish oppression by forcibly collectivizing, and a certain amount of force will be regrettably needed because those horrible kulaks are so horrible. You are being cruelly oppressed, not only by Elon Musk, but by the man who owns a pizza joint. Space travel is fake, there is no technological decline. Fertility is collapsing because of evil male misbehavior that modern civilization and technology makes possible, and cannot be restored except by widespread poverty, fellow right winger. Harvard is the source of all technology and progress, and since Musk dropped out of university, he is obviously just a rich guy who never built anything, but was granted custody of stuff by the Rothschilds, fellow right winger.”

                  When these scripts are endlessly deleted, I ask them to post a thought crime, or even notice our thought crimes, and they never do, even though simply responding to one of those thought crimes in away that acknowledges their interlocutor is thinking criminal thoughts would allow their posts through.

                  It saddens me how often this meme shows up, not just in shill posts but from totally normal dissident-inclined guys. At least four of the individuals on your blogroll have floated it on multiple occasions and two are still obsessed with it.

                  The more perceptive among them exclude the “evil male misbehavior” part, but still can’t get past a lifetime of Whig/Marxist programming telling them that technological progress = social “progress” and ergo, it must primarily be technology (designed and built by men, of course) like social media that’s making women misbehave.

                  People really seem to want to believe the lie that industrialization makes female emancipation inevitable. They’ll nod and smile when you patiently explain that liberalism and industrialization did not happen at exactly the same time, or in the same places, or at the same rate of change. Then, the next time you see them, they’ll repeat their original assertion as if the conversation never happened.

                  Steampunk projects grrlpower back to the age of the industrial revolution, is fake and gay for that reason. What we need is the opposite, imagery and entertainment projecting patriarchy and other ancient social tech forward into the digital age.

  36. SJ says:

    Disney makes insidious subversive movies to encourage your daughter to be a disobedient slut and spinster. They always have. In The Little Mermaid the girl disobeys her father and goes to a witch so she can bang the sexy guy she has only seen from a distance which results in him magically being a prince who marries her. In Aladdin the princess disobeys her father to bang the sexy badboy thief who through magic becomes a prince who then marries her. The Lion King features a song about do whatever you feel like, if it feels good do it, and everything works out for the best. Not to mention the weaker IPs like that hotel Transylvania shit that is entirely about how your father is stupid and you should follow your feelings which mysteriously want you to be alone with the bad boy.

    Fathers who let their daughters watch Disney movies are encouraging their daughters to become disobedient sluts for losers.

    • Western Taliban says:

      The Lion King features a song about do whatever you feel like, if it feels good do it, and everything works out for the best.

      The thing is that it does not work out for the best, and it’s clearly said and shown in the movie, that in truth it works for the absolute worst.

      Simba runs away from his duties and responsibilities in the natural order, his life is worthless gay empty hedonism and then he is faced with cruel cold reality when met with a female acquaintance he is supposed to be impregnating. Then he is guided back to greatness by a Dyeus Pater representation in the form of his ghost father, who tells him to remember who he is. He then faces his past, defeats his traitor uncle and grows to be the king he is supposed to be, reasserting the natural order and restoring light and goodness to the land.

      Little Mermaid and Aladdin, just like Pocahontas, are pretty red pilled, they have happened and continue to happen in reality. I don’t know if it encourages daughters, but they reliably represent what happens in reality and shows a window into the truth of female sexuality.

      I’ve never considered what I’d let a daughter watch or not, so I haven’t given it real thought. At the very least Disney movies used to encourage girls to be princesses, be feminine and such, the other part is just realistic female behavior. Ariel’s father and Jasmine’s father are both weak cucks, which leads to terrible situations that endanger their own daughters, good moral lesson to learn.

        Reality isn’t anything like this gay take. These movies are designed to make little girls think if they defy their fathers they’ll get everything they want. Instead they get disaster, single motherhood or end up as catladies, or sometimes dead.

        You really need to rethink your name with takes like Disney isn’t trying to fuck up your children.

        • Western Taliban says:

          But that’s exactly how women behave, it reflects their behavior, it’s how the behave in reality. They buck on their fathers if they are weak and go cruise for cock. If fathers don’t set up the rules and enforce them, good luck.

          It’s true that it doesn’t end up well in the current order and that aspect is not necessarily well reflected though. I saw those movies when I was very young so maybe I’m remembering the details wrong, but the girls get into huge life threatening danger because of their stupid misbehavior and are somehow saved by male protagonists, I think.

          As I said I have never looked at it from the perspective of showing it to a daughter, but a boy can learn much from it.

          The Lion King is literally the reality and perspective of every Millennial and Gen Z from a reactionary take. Mufasa representing our ancestors and kings backed up by God and natural order, Scar is the leftist traitors, the hyenas the lumpenprole and rest of subhumans this people recruit. It’s literally how it’s playing out and it’s literally the way back.

            The Disney movies for girls both describe and encourage. They tell young girls that if they disobey their fathers and run away to be in the company of sexy dangerous men, they will end up with their handsome billionaire prince and not die alone and get eaten by cats. They encourage girls to do what they naturally want to do, by promising false outcomes.

            • Western Taliban says:

              From that perspective you’re right, I just never even considered it, since I saw it as a boy and I’m a man and I literally cba about women. But I don’t think I’ve ever seen any media appropriate for girls to begin with, since the 60s the western world has been increasingly gay.

            Thanks to Disney I grew up thinking that saving a woman was the way to get a wife. That sure the fuck doesn’t work. Protecting and saving a woman is a male fantasy, not a female one. Being uncaring and cold to the trouble she’s suffering from her misbehavior is the way to score, not to be caring for a slut you don’t own.

            Sure and like I said they only allowed that because it was a story about negros. The message was this is good for Africans but White’s shouldn’t do it. You see the same sort of stuff in Black Panther. Only niggers are allowed a king.

              I see, well that’s not what I understood when I saw those movies as a kid. What I understood is that women are incredibly retarded for engaging in such self-destructive behavior, that they cry crocodile tears to men, that a man should be wary least he fall for the manipulation and deception. I guess we just saw it in a completely different way.

              As a boy, I never felt that getting such retarded “princesses” was something positive, I never saw it as a good thing or a good way to score. I actually kinda hated it, I certainly hated the little mermaid or whatever was the name of the movie. I liked Aladdin for the genie and the sense of adventure and boldness from the protagonist, hated the retarded sultan that let his daughter run over him, paid attention to the traitor priest advisor trying to steal power, hated the uppity bitch.

              I’m just recalling from memory of like twenty something years ago, it’s not like I’m going to sit in almost my 30s watching some kid’s cartoon from so far ago, but I personally saw a window into the true face of women which was confirmed throughout my life. I didn’t mean it was ideal, but I do believe that a medium that presents reality even if only to a degree is far superior to anything today. I can’t even begin to think of something I’d show a child today, it’s all pure cancer.

                I think the problem was less pronounced in earlier Disney movies — snow white, Cinderella, sleeping beauty were all feminine, not so rebellious.

                But yes, like with so many media the red pill makes you re-evaluate almost all 20th century media. It is kinda sneaky how many of those ‘fairy tales’ are really just romance novels repackaged for young girls.

                Here’s a question: as the list of what you should NOT allow your daughters to watch grows ever longer, what are things you CAN watch with them? To start off with an example: I thought princess Sisi was pretty good. Alpha dad, alpha husband.

At a more naive age I might have said “welcome to our side”, but he’ll never be our friend. At best a temporary, unreliable ally against only the very worst of the demons.

          It is, truly and always, the position toward women that distinguishes “them” from “us”. The paleoliberal laments the decline and embarrassment of women’s sports and other all-women institutions at the hands of troon infiltrators; the reactionary celebrates it, for women’s sports are fake and gay and women have no place in the institutions. The paleoliberal angrily condemns the troon for cheating and putting women in harm’s way; the reactionary laughs a hearty, guttural laugh, as the indisputable proof piles up that men are better than women at literally every athletic pursuit and most cerebral ones, and the only thing being “harmed” about women is their inflated social status.

          Don’t mistake me; troons are a massive blight on male institutions, not so much because of their individual psychoses but because we are all forced, if not at gunpoint then certainly at salary-point, to validate their delusions and help spread the psychosis. There really is a serious problem there, and I haven’t even mentioned the drag queen story hour perverts who are going after young boys (but they are mostly legacy fags, not real troons). Troons harming women, though? Only a feminist could say that with a straight face.

            The Grrls run their identity sweepstakes for fifty years, with themselves at the front of the line of course, then wail and gnash teeth when at last they get bit by the Troons, who are merely playing the Grrls own game of self-victimization.

            Normie cuck-con and daughter-daddy are outraged, outraged I tell you! but pointedly were not outraged — nor even vocal — during the fifty years of Total Feminism that preceded the Troons. Nupe everybody fine with that.

            Which is to say, may the fembots and cucky-cons alike chokety choke-choke down the Troons ‘stealing’ the thunder of their empowered princesses. Despite its satanic grotesqueness, it is a beautiful thing to see.

      A very large rate of brain fog following the jab is consistent with what I see among engineers. The fog appears permanent. There are many indications that the jab frequently causes neurons to die, which indications it is forbidden to look into.

      • falseconvert says:

        Loads of things could have caused memory decay and brain fog. Being propagandized can do that. Having to stay in your house for 2 years could in theory do that. Being forced to follow illogical rules could do that.

        Bear in mind the jab happened at the same time as the lockdowns and all of the fear messaging, which lead to an increase in anxiety, depression, etc. Brain fog could be a symptom of those mental problems, and general confusion and internal cognitive dissonance, more than they are symptoms of the jab.

        What are the indications you speak of?

        Also, computers are designed to think for us, lessening the need for our memories and clarity of thought. Probably 61% of people upped their computer usage over lockdown.

His brain is fried and it’s getting worse. He’s angry and upset as his mental capacity goes and it continues to get worse even after he gave up taking more jabs. It’s like I’m watching someone with progressive dementia in his mid 40s.

          • jim says:

            “low level covid” is the worst. It is an indicator that your immune system is fried. Normally the immune system clears the virus in a few days, and the subsequent period of illness is your immune system bombing the rubble to make sure no holdouts remain. If “low level covid” your immune system failed to promptly clear the virus, which means the virus is cutting loose causing damage, but you are not that sick because the immune system is not making a vigorous reaction.

            “low level covid” seems to be a common ailment of the repeatedly boosted.

              I find it very hard to believe that losing your train of thought ten times a day isn’t damage to the brain. I don’t think I’ve ever known anyone lose their train of thought ten times in a day except for family members with early dementia.
              As for whether it’s the jab or lockdowns. It would be easy to check: test which 61% of the population is affected. It’ll come out that it’s the jabbed, just like it’s the jabbed filling the hospitals now. But they will never test. Instead, we get

              Stress, depression and anxiety caused up to 36 million people to suffer brain fog.

                Thanks for your good faith response.

                I probably lose my train of thought more than ten times per day. But, then again, I don’t count. Did the people in this report, which isn’t linked in the article and which I couldn’t find on Google, count? How do you go about counting the number of times you lose your train of thought?

                If you Google the name of the doctor quoted, plus the organisation that funded the report, you get loads of other news articles that cite the report, almost all of the articles using the same phrasing as each other, but no link to the report.

                  Your concern is fair enough: this may be weak evidence.
                  You will hardly find evidence from highly reputable sources because they won’t look into it. You’ll have to listen carefully to anecdotal evidence from different people (many people here have been reporting of engineers with brain fog and of unusual amounts of bad drivers, I hear similar things in other forums).
                  We are in a situation in which no one is allowed to carefully look at the problem (e.g. autopsies not done), and being gaslighted (e.g. heart attacks caused by gardening).

                  You lose your train of thought ten times a day? That seems like a lot!.

                Eh, I agree with you that they’re probably trying to hide evidence that would show the jab is harmful. I also agree that it might have caused harm. But I think it’s more the propaganda and the cognitive dissonance leading up to taking it, than the substance itself.

                Haha, well, as I said, I don’t count, but it could be more than ten. I seem to function okay though.

                • falseconvert says:

                  Interesting. I think that covid/the jab probably cause mental damage, but the extent varies. In my case, it doesn’t seem to have been that bad.

                • simplyconnected says:

                  It’s consistent with Red’s experience of coworker with chronic covid and brain fog. Perhaps there is a role of jab’s immune damage leading to chronic covid causing long-term brain fog.

                  The spike protein is directly neurotoxic.

                  But, if attached the virus, cannot cross the blood brain barrier. The spike protein while attached to the virus is apt to shut down the sense of smell, because there are a lot highly exposed neurons in the nose.

                  So we would expect the jab, which can cross the blood brain barrier, to cause brain damage in the same way the virus impairs your sense of smell.

                  Small Intestine 1.47
                  Lymph Nodes 1.37
                  The blood plasma concentration of the LNP after 48 hours is 0.54 micrograms per ml. Therefore the above organs show strong bioaccumulation.
                  Heart 0.546
                  Blood 0.54

        Finally, “over half of Briton’s said”….

        so, maybe 51% of people said their memory had got worse, and 49% said it had got better.

        Why is that surprising? Why does that have anything to do with the jab? Why could that not just be the result of computers?

          Not just memory, they lose their train of thought multiple times a day. Hard to believe that is caused by computers.
          Cardiac problems are a very visible effect of the jab, but brain problems are just as (maybe more) prevalent. Not checking if the brain-fogged are jabbed is like not asking whether stroking young people were jabbed: it tells you they don’t want to know because they fear the answer.

          • falseconvert says:

            TikTok could cause that, for example. IMO there’s a clearer link between something which very directly and deliberately preys on your attention, like TikTok, and brain fog, than there is between the jab and brain fog. But I could be wrong, the jab could be an additional culprit.

                  Your link tells us:

                  The Gnostics, Jonas writes, seized on this rift in the old world-picture in an ingenious – and prototypically antithetic and invidious – way: “In retaining this name [cosmos] for the world, the Gnostics retained the idea of order as the main characteristic of what they were intent on deprecating. Indeed, instead of denying to the world the attribute of order… they turned this very attribute from one of praise into one of opprobrium, and in the process if anything increased the emphasis on it.” The positive elements of hierarchy and regularity in the old idea become “rigid and inimical order, tyrannical and evil law” in the new idea.

                  The right is order, the left is disorder. The left is those who want to knock over the applecart to grab some apples. Thus, to the extent that they form any sort of coherent ideology, it necessarily resembles gnosticism.

                  For the Platonic, Neoplatonic, and Stoic schools the cosmos was itself, if not quite a god, then divine. But for Gnosticism the cosmos becomes “devoid of meaning and goodness, alien to the purposes of man… an order empty of divinity.”

                  Which brings us the black pill, the red pill and the white pill.

                  It is natural and right that men should rule over women, and superior men rule over inferior men. The left deems the natural and right order of the cosmos racist, sexist, homophobic, capitalist, colonialist, and oppressive. They are at war with reality itself, a war they will inevitably lose, but may well take us with them to their destruction.

                  When the coercion eased up, observance of rites of worship of the awesome and mighty Covid demon collapsed to very low levels. Going by behavior, rather than words, looks like eighty percent or so are not “glad to have taken them”

    And yes the sea-change, or coup if you prefer, took place in ’63 with a very typical and public ‘blood-sacrifice of the king’ by sinister elements following their ancient and sinister ‘religion’, elements that have not been dislodged from power since.

      People who run a business are in no position to oppose the state religion, even when it is officially unofficial. They never have ever been, never will be, and they will not be when we are in charge. Observe the abrupt disappearance of strong empowered independent women from the media in 1933, and that from 1944 to 1963, wives and children in the media were obedient, and if disobedient, spanked.

      Why did Disney burn star wars? – Because they were forced to hire woke women into positions of power by Human Resources, who threatened them with a sexual harassment and sex discrimination lawsuit. Similarl, Google fired James Damore because threatened by human resources with a hostile work environment lawsuit.

      We however, will rule with a lighter hand. It is obvious that James the first occasionally had a gentle little word with Shakespeare. We will do something similar. We will not burn Star Wars, with the result that our movies, likes the James the first plays, will be remembered.

      When James the first ascended, Shakespeare’s company became known as “The Kings men”, and suddenly started putting on plays reflecting Shakespeare’s great talent and deep insight into human nature, but set in history as Royalty viewed it. But Royalty did not cramp Shakepeare’s style, the way woke cramps everything in the media. Nor did the requirement that wives and children be obedient cramp the style of 1950s media all that much, not remotely as much as woke.

        Corporations do not control the government: in order for a corporation to exist, it has to be able to comply with the government’s regulations, and as Jim says, that includes the ones that are informal, as well as formal. It may be ‘unofficially official’ that corporations must fly the L G B T Q I A P B N + flag(s), but that doesn’t mean they can choose not to do it.

        A libertarian would say that that means the real existing corporations that administer (not run, administer) the US private sector are blameless, but that’s naive: the ones that would have been blameless didn’t get to exist! The ones that did get to exist are far from blameless. It’s important to distinguish between capitalISM (private property rights, freely entered into contracts, people meeting each other’s needs in order to profit in the only way that’s open to them, etc. etc.) and capitalISTs: as Murray Rothbard regularly pointed out, get six CEOs in a room and they’ll be forming a cartel before you can say Shlomo Goldstein.
        There’s a good video of the old kike goblin on YouTube entitled “The origins of Progressive Regulation”, which explains that far from legitimately being the expression of the shitlib religion, the regulations are largely just practical means to form unbustable cartels.
        Again that does not mean the executives forming the cartel, funding the parties, and so on, are in charge! It’s just that their interests (being unprofitable and not facing undercutting competitors) happen to align with those of the Cathedral on this occasion.

        A contemporary example would be all the genuine financial advantages being reaped by Shell and BP (my darlings) off the back of all the ‘green’ crap.
        It’s not remotely debatable that they’re doing very well from ‘renewables’ and ‘the green energy transition’.
        That’s somewhat legitimate corporations acting in their own interests, and that’s before we even CONSIDER the truly parasitical subsidy-drinkers like Tesla, BeyondMeat and Virgin Galactic.
        Indeed even the most rugged of all libertarian individualists, the mining corporations, are even subject to the perverting power of the Cathedral: the world is seeking much more lithium than would otherwise be the case, which will be a genuine tragedy once the fads have folded and the legitimate need for lithium remains, but with reduced supply.

        Anyway, suffice to say it’s not really possible to disentangle corporations’ “legitimate” aims (profit and meeting consumer demands) and their “slimy” ones (pleasing Larry Fink’s ESG framework or getting Sleepy Joe’s monopoly money from aunty Janet. Hope you’re counting the jews by the way!): what remains is a case of ‘real existing capitalism’, and whichever way you want to dice it, there are trannies on beer cans.

        That’s a problem.

          It is debatable, and debated, despite the fact that it is quite dangerous for namefags to debate it. The wonderful advantages of Shell and BP going green are similar to the wonderful advantages obtained by making a woman CEO, and the wonderful advantages obtained by turning iconic Marvel heroes black, gay, and female. It is ESG accounting, of which Musk had a few words to say.

          The enterprise as an entity was imagined into existence by double entry book keeping, and then the accounting fiction was made a legal fiction by Charles the Second creating the joint stock for profit corporation (previously corporations had been quasi governmental entities similar to today’s ngos) Charles unified the long existing accounting fiction with the long existing legal fiction.

          Accountants are abandoning tracking the movement and creation of value in favor of tracking the performance and creation of holiness. The death of book keeping is the death of the corporate form.

          when you piss wealth away on Green energy it hurts. We see end users suffering greatly, as in South Australia and Germany, with blackouts and high electricity prices, but everyone up and down the chain is hurting.

          I count at least three (probably intentional) errors in this one paragraph alone:

          1. “Capitalist” as a noun is not a real thing, therefore there is nothing to distinguish. Marx invented the term as a catch-all for his us-vs-them class taxonomy. Indeed, the very fact that you and every other Marxist claims such an enormous distinction between “Capitalism” and “Capitalist” proves that the latter is a malicious construction. Is there such a distinction between physics and physicists? Music and musicians? If the “ist” is not a simple practitioner of the “ism” then the definition is dishonest.

          2. If there were such a thing as a Capitalist, correctly defined as a “merchant”, then the modern CEO would not be an example of one. CEOs are priests; managers educated in a monastery, parachuted in and installed by bishops and cardinals, carefully monitored by nuns. CEOs are CEOs because they aren’t merchants. When they are merchants we call them entrepreneurs, founders, owners, perhaps presidents. If a merchant becomes a CEO, by taking his private company public, he tends not to stay CEO for very long unless he’s willing to suck a lot of very holy cock.

          3. CEOs are rarely Jewish as you imply here. The older generation of CEOs was/is mostly protestant white Democrats, and some Greeks, while the newer generation is increasingly pox — dot-Indians, Arabs, and an ever-growing proportion of no-shit negroes. Yeah, SBF is a Jew — and SBF got busted. What does that tell you about the state and tribal protection that Jews supposedly enjoy, compared to such names as Tim Mayopoulos, the glorious new leader of SVB? Why does Sam go to jail, and Tim get promoted and given a big stack of bailout bucks?

          The last official act of any government is to loot the treasury. The last unofficial act is to blame the Jews.

          Not that they don’t invite their share of blame, but cape, matador, etc. If you want to talk about misbehaving Jews, let’s talk about the Kagans, the Rosenbergs, the Soroses… of course we’ll never hear that from sources such as yourself, it’s only ever about the Jewish bagel shop owner or the Jewish computer programmer turned tech startup. It’s always the [usually but not always Jewish] merchant somehow executing these elaborate schemes on purpose, with a near-perfect success rate, and massively benefiting from it. He is definitely not getting the shakedown from various insect overlords, paying protection money, hiring woke ad firms and HR departments to defend against lawsuits, and doing everything he can just to stay in business.

I’m no oracle, I’m barely smart enough to post here, but upon reflection I think I’m just very much in the weeds on the right side of Theory v. Practice (so I have loads of built-in bias/bullshit). That being said, -ist v. -ism is a thing I spend many cycles on, which is entirely predictable for a failed writer/faggot artist that is red+black pilled. So you’re probably right.

They are now nosediving into ruin because their shitty product is disgusting, even for women, faggots, and other creatures with no aesthetic sense.

          Shell, BP, and for that matter ExxonMobil, are not the energy companies you were taught to loathe as an undergrad. They’ve been skinsuited completely, with the few remaining capitalists (by this I mean wealth creators, not monopoly man phantasms) banished to low status positions. Just look at the boards, the C Suite, and the people making decisions.

          The best example I’ve found of skinsuit capitalism is Vitol the commodities trading firm. The midwit take, the most common perspective, the baseline position of even well informed Alex Jones fans, is that this is about as hidden hand* as you can get. But if you dig into what they are, their history, they are little more than bagmen for the likes of Clinton et al. What Soros is for banking, Vitol is for commodities. Yet you will find no end of “redpilled” right wingers who can’t help but blame the marionette and explain away the strings.

          All of these companies are fronts for either governance goons or, as the rare exception, a tech bro trying to get off planet. The creators of wealth are not in power. Indeed, they never really were after the gilded age.

        This has to do with the situation in South America for the most part, as well as the eccentricities of the Canadian pseudo-prohibition of alcohol.

        It’s not that the Marxists sat in a room and decided to have a beer company. It’s that it’s more or less impossible to sell alcohol as a private corporation in the Americas.

        There are weird exceptions to the state control of alcohol in the Americas. I’m a big fan of CCU, for example. They will never be able to compete with AB-Inbev or whatever you want to call it, because in America, a communist country, the government rules.

        If you want to cope by telling yourself that’s the only reason the scum in charge of AB-Inbev are interested in touching kids, you’re entitled to do that. From a certain standpoint you could reasonably argue that Jeffrey Epstein was in effect a state actor (albeit for Israel, in which case Chomsky has it backwards: America’s a colony of Zion not the other way round) and therefore the blackmail of [insert choice of billionaire scumbag pederast of your choice] was in effect a state influence and everything they did *after* they touched kids was on behalf of the government……… but after a certain point it feels like a bit of a stretch.

Far from wanting diversity, they have racial laws and are actively advancing ethnic cleansing and genocide of arabs.

              Recall that the government that was being color revolutioned was in favor of peace with Israel, and the government installed by color revolution in favor of war.

              I would say Harvard and the State Department’s interests in color revolution in Egypt were in substantial part the same as its interests in having the Israeli supreme court exercise sovereign power: The destruction of Israel.

              The color revolutionary movement in Syria was in favor of the extermination of the Alawites and the expulsion of the Christians. The expulsion of Christians from the middle east is a long standing Harvard goal that they have pursued by a wide variety of means in a wide variety of places, Egypt, Iraq and Israel among them. But a Syrian government that exterminates Alawites and expels Christians is going to go after the nearest bunch of Jews once it is done with Alawites and Christians.

              LGBTQ+ shit doesn’t need a colour revolution: the Talmud’s full of it and is in fact the ultimate origin of the idea.

              Sure it is, champ. But just to satisfy my own curiosity, you won’t mind if I look that up, aye?

              *googles “talmud homosexuality”*

              [Vayikra 18:3] After what is done [referring to homosexuality, bestiality and incest] in Eretz Mitzrayim, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do;

              [Vayikra 18:22] Thou shalt not lie with zachar, as with isha: it is to’evah (abomination, detestable)

              [Sukkah 29a] The Sages taught that on account of four matters the sun is eclipsed: On account of a president of the court who dies and is not eulogized appropriately, and the eclipse is a type of eulogy by Heaven; on account of a betrothed young woman who screamed in the city that she was being raped and there was no one to rescue her; on account of homosexuality; and on account of two brothers whose blood was spilled as one.

              [Tosefta Kiddushin 5:10] A single man shouldn’t shepherd small cattle, and two single men shouldn’t sleep in one cloak. They said: Yisrael is not suspected of such [bestiality/homosexuality].

              And apparently that’s about all the Talmud has to say on the subject. I found several other search results from contemporary sources, implying that the Talmud says this or that in favor of all manner of perversions, but not a single one with a citation to back it up. I can easily find many of the same sophistic, contortionist claims about the scripture for any other religion, but the literal text says “no, no way, not ever, and don’t even get into a situation where something might suspect you of doing it”.

              It’s mixed in with the usual “Chosen people are above suspicion” crap but what do you expect, it’s Jews, and we aren’t debating whether Judaism permits them to be self-important inbred shitbirds, only whether it permits homosexuality. Survey says: no. Seems pretty consistent with Jim’s stated position on homos, which is that it’s disgusting and antisocial, but also is or should be a nonentity; we don’t think about it, we don’t talk about it, we pretend it doesn’t exist unless we literally can’t ignore it, in which case the sodomites are apt to disappear under mysterious circumstances. See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil — in the original meaning intended by antiquity, not the modern “turn a blind eye” inversion.

              Incidentally, secondary sources say that the Talmud puts lesbianism in a different category of “licentiousness” instead of homosexuality, which is both very funny from a red-pilled point of view and also consistent with Jim’s past statements (no such thing as lesbians). But I either can’t find or can’t understand the primary source, so it might be apocryphal.

              I’m no rabbi, or even a theologist, just some guy with a search engine, but what I’m reading from you appears to be, not derived from the actual Talmud, but from what a bunch of 21st-century fringe Jewish faggots and pederasts and progressive conversos say about the Talmud, which is about as truthful as what those same folks say about anything else.

    A salary and a bank account are a station of authority over how a small slice of the national economy is allocated. Obviously these should never be given to women but at least half of them are, with disastrous effect.

    The collective economic decisions of women are retarded, blowing the majority of the nation’s economic product on consumables that do not generate any value.

    With pussy secured under patriarchy, men want to reinvest their surplus earnings into tools, business ventures, siring more children, etc.

    Women on the other hand waste it all on mimosas, vacation, makeup, and disposable clothing. And then they reach into your wallet and grab yours too. Men in this social environment (“the state of nature”) have to spend more money on frivolous bullshit to chase the pussy and keep it happy.

    Every dollar that you have to spend on a nightclub cover to game sluts because you can’t negotiate a fertile virgin wife directly from under her father’s roof, is an economic command for larger numbers of waitstaff and liquor bottlers to dedicate their finite human labor toward Not Building Bridges. Formerly this was the vice of drunkard sailors and other fringes and dregs of society but now it’s everybody under 30 and many older as well.

    Or beta men just give up and and blow it on all the new Mandalorian LEGO sets and Twitch chat reads because nothing is completely irrational anymore after your clan-writ-large has made it just shy of illegal for you to ever get pussy.

    Extend this effect into every facet of life and you see why it’s now organizationally unthinkable to achieve things that our grandfathers did with simpler technology and less input energy. Even monuments from hundreds or thousands of years ago are impressive, not “for their time” but for OUR time. It feels backwardly futuristic to be able to move so much stone into a genuinely beautiful arrangement.

    Revoke these sluts of their bank cards and you’ve got one foot on Mars.

    The absolute hypersurreal clarity of adrenaline. It’s euphoric. @KD I think you might enjoy this video.

    I weighed out the consequences of my actions, and I accepted them. I knew what I was doing. Everything was a conscious and thought out decision. Those were one of the most happy times of my life.

    Trauma largely comes from trying to reconcile the rush with the most horrific and concurrent times of life. All of life becomes a monochrome. Perversely seeking out more trauma becomes an incentive.


    >They’re fighting for the same reason the Germans continued to fight in 1945. Azov will kill them and their families if they give up.

    Sure, recruitment at gun point is an initial factor, but causes become lost with time and eventually many fight because it’s the only color they have in life.

    • Kunning Druegger says:

      I watched it. Saw some good footage, and it was interesting to hear the tiniest amounts of honesty about enjoying the killing. If I’d seen that before coming Here, before becoming what I am now, I’d be totally psyched, my dick would be hard. Now, watching these vertbros “share,” two thoughts vie for dominance in my mind: these are the foot soldiers of gynochracy; they traded everything away and still lost.

      These guys are acting like they were brave, but I’ve come to a place where I have far more respect for the Tangos that fought them for 20 years, then went right back to living. How many of these “cold blooded killers” need massive amounts of daily medication just to appear to function? How would these guys respond to an occupying force with overwhelming firepower moving into their communities and relishing in the destruction of their country and culture? After 2020, I am confident in saying that over 90% of the American combat veterans (excluding all the non-combat/functionaries) would roll over almost instantly the moment they were outgunned. You have to filter all of this, all the braggadocio and “psycho-killer” babbling through the lens of “these guys were salaried laborers with every weapon system known to man working over time to keep them from losing, and they lost.”

      Don’t get me wrong, I have “thoughts” about belt fed weaponry, MBTs, and a particular campus, and All That Entails. But the awe and esteem I held for the combat class of the US is completely gone, utterly evaporated away. They are nothing more than the foot soldiers of feminism, making the world safe for sodomy.

      • Pax Imperialis says:

        >they traded everything away and still lost.

        Yes. I think it interesting that you could see the tension between what they wanted to do in their “jokes” and the fear they had of USG disapproval. It’s why they lost. They’ve got Tali trying to kill them on one end and Feds trying to fuck them on the other. I wouldn’t say they traded everything away though. They got some good times from it along with some bad times.

        >the foot soldiers of gynochracy

        Quite a few (combat vets included) will privately say they have more in common with the Taliban than they do with USG… obviously that’s a landmine few will touch in any published video.

        >These guys are acting like they were brave

        I don’t see that. Adrenaline shuts down thoughts of bravery. You just do what has to be done. What I did see was a lot of reminiscence over some of the best and worst times of their lives.

        >How many of these “cold blooded killers” need massive amounts of daily medication just to appear to function?

        Somewhere around 10-20 billion USD per year in drugs, so a lot of them. Very rough estimate though. Most of the psychological problems they have originates from a life time of indoctrination telling them to feel bad for fighting when it feels really, really good to fight the enemy.

        They can’t reconcile the difference and it drives them crazy. Not so dissimilar from how some Christian sect members (gnostics) are anti sex and go crazy and kill a bunch of prostitutes.

        >Tangos that fought them for 20 years, then went right back to living.

        They are not coping well either.

        I sometimes miss the jihad life for all the good things it had. In our ministry, there’s little work for me to do. Therefore, I spend most of my time on Twitter. We’re connected to speedy Wi-Fi and the Internet. Many mujahedin, including me, are addicted to the Internet, especially Twitter.

        When Tali becomes NEETs because there’s no Americans to fight… we in the West will get some great memes out of it, but I can’t say it’s healthy.

        >How would these guys respond to an occupying force

        If they ever get spiritual approval to shoot back they would love it. Life would have purpose again. The problem is that the preachers all tell them shooting back is wrong and that lying down to die is just. Preachers that do tell them it’s righteous to fight all end up like Waco.

        >They are nothing more than the foot soldiers of feminism, making the world safe for sodomy.

        A fair point, but right now GAE has a monopoly on spiritual approval of violence. Until that’s broken, young men seeking adventure and fighting will trade their values and youth for bad causes. Just is how it is. Ultimately a spiritual problem and we must put blame on the ruling priesthood.

Like Snowden, should have fled to the periphery of the Chinese hegemony, and thence moved to Russia.

  46. Kunning Drueger says:

    Here’s a link to a YouTube video that is an excerpt of Joe Rogan talking to the infamous blowhard Eric Weinstein.

    I don’t know enough about physics to accurately gauge whether Weinstein is a complete charlatan, or whether he actually has some good points to make. In my midwit mind, looking at who is opposing him and what they represent, I am inclined to believe that Weinstein is actually on to something but lacks the brain power or some other juju that would make him an actual force to be reckoned with. This video is interesting if only for how it adds some clarity to one small aspect of Harvard as Seminary for Progress.

    I bring him up because he is a second case study in what could be a actual trend of intellectuals, that being ones that are just as much snake oil salesman as the typical Cathedral agent, but for multiple different reasons, were not allowed into the club and therefore are acting out against it. This is relevant to our work here because any kind of elite defection, no matter the motivation, should be something we look at and consider. The first example is Zeihan, though it must be stated that he seems to be on the opposite track, in that he used to be a lone voice in the wilderness crying out, but now he is moving into the fold to be a spokesman for the Polygon. That could be him Buying In, or the In Crowd trying to branch out.

    A possible term for these kinds of defectors could be Blind Seekers. They stumble onto some bedrock truth that shows them that the status quo of the intellectual ecosystem is misguided, incorrect, or deeply flawed, but because they cannot break the programming, because they’ve never been darkly enlightened or red pilled, they flail about clumsily and are not really capable of a cohesive opposition.

    In tactical terms, these blind seekers represent an opportunity for our side. In strategic terms, they are probably helicopter fodder. No matter which way you slice it. I will be up front and say that his Theory of Unified Geometry appeals to my embarrassingly shallow understanding of physics, but that’s just half my revulsion with String Theorists and half my intuition that whatever the Cathedral submits as true is the opposite.

    If anyone is keeping track, that is two additions to the rhetorical framework I have submitted and am awaiting “beer review” from the lads here, which is the method of reading my inanities while sober, again while drunk, then deciding which parts are the worst.

      He did. Best economics around. And the trouble is Joe Rogan, and the IQ gap. Guage theoretical marginal economics is what he is actually talking about, but in the course of explaining what happened to the unification of marginal economics and gauge theory, which is way beyond Joe Rogan and Joe Rogan’s audience, he explains how power works.
