The ISI, with the help of America, defeated America.

The Taliban exists because Pakistan sponsors it. Since Pakistan has nukes, everyone preferred to not notice this.

Lieutenant General Hamid Gul, Pakistani Military intelligence, the ISI, accurately foresaw what is now happening in Afghanistan as I post this:

when Afghanistan’s history came to be written, it would record that the ISI, with the help of America, defeated the Soviet Union. And next, historians would record that the ISI, with the help of America, defeated America.

With the major US airbase abandoned, the Afghan government is likely to fall sometime well before September. It could well fall tomorrow, but it will simply take time for Taliban forces to move to Kabul from the Pakistan border.

There is a great deal that is very wrong with Mohammedanism. But there are only two live faiths in power Progressivism and Islam. And as progressivism becomes ever more self destructive, it is losing to Islam.

Or perhaps there is a third. Orthodox Christianity. Let us pay our respects to Putin, Tsar of all the Russias.

Xi Thought is dead. He is trying to bring it to life with a controlled infusion of old type Marxism, which in sufficient dose will destroy the Chinese economy and cause scientific and technological stagnation, but no dose is going to revive the Chinese state religion. The only real option that he has is to adopt old type Confucianism and claim the mandate of heaven, breaking with Maoism.

India has nukes, but incapable of independence because Hinduism is overrun by demons. Has been for a very long time. Pakistan, demonstrably, is capable of independence.

At the recent summit conference, Putin and whoever is pulling Biden’s strings agreed to lower the temperature and halt the drift to war, but those who control Biden can no more control the State Department than Trump could. The State Department thinks it has agreed to pause the drift to war for a few months.

Putin appears to doubt the capability of American nukes, and there are some people in the US government who do not believe America’s nukes work either. Perhaps those are the people who are pulling Biden’s strings, in which case they will eventually be forced to do whatever it takes to prevent the drift to war.

But they are riding a tiger. A holiness spiral is going to go to war with someone. Usually its own subjects.

      Yes they plan to import 300+ million Africans to murder every non nigger in the country. We’ve known this for a long time now. I’m going to relish what they do to blue areas and the leftist shitheads who live there. Cominator’s wants to kill all the leftists, but with millions of imported niggers we won’t have to anything besides mop up after they’re doing murdering their masters.

      I’ve watched the combat ability of blacks for a long time now. It’s garbage. The problem is the few remaining competent whites in charge in DC and their idiot white footmen, who I predict they’ll quickly replace with their nigger army. When the last competent white combat solider is kicked out of the armed forces, DC will easily fall to even a small elite led white rebellion.

    I don’t tend to go in for the “long game conspiracy” depopulation agenda NWO-type stuff, but this Madonna video from May 2019 has frankly freaked me out a bit, especially given the back cover of her new “Madame X” album has a typewriter with the word CORONA written prominently on it: https://youtu.be/VG3WkiL0d_U

    Is there more sinister planning than we think or is Madonna just really lucky this time with her love of weirdo symbolism?

    • onyomi says:

      Seems Corona is a real brand of typewriter featured in many creepy movies. Though that doesn’t explain the choice to put a typewriter (Tom Hanks’s favorite toy??) on the back of the album. Of course, there is probably an extent to which these Holywood types just like to troll people as well, but still…

      Eurovision song contest is a religious celebration and ritual of the Euro Church of Harvard.

      This is an explicitly religious, and explicitly satanic video in an implicitly religious celebration. It begins with Madonna wearing black priestly robes, surrounded by hooded monks, and her priestly vestments decorated with a big X and an image of the dragon.

      But interpreting the reference as being to Corona is a long stretch. Rather the Satanic elements in the video prefigure the Satanic elements in the worship of Corona chan.

      It is not that Madonna was informed in advance of the coming worship of the holy Corona demon. Rather that the video is a celebration of the same Satanism

      • onyomi says:

        Boy these people are creepy. I guess right now it feels very important to me to figure out some clearer sense of how much of the current evil is really sinister, great reset, globalist plotting and how much is just stupidity, opportunism, holiness spiral incentives, etc. Typically I lean much more toward the latter, but the massive uptick in Extinction Rebellion-type symbolism, along with statements by Klaus Schwab, etc. all make me wonder a bit more about the former.

        Of course, with everyone talking about supposedly deadly disease all the time, it is to be expected and I still tend more toward endorsing the view expressed in this Twitter thread https://twitter.com/eugyppius1/status/1416792181646544908

        But thinking about that Georgia depopulation monument and the type of creepy, misanthropic globalism embraced by elites and promoted by Thunberg, etc. makes me uneasy, especially as I soon have to make a decision about whether to get a Chinese whole virus vaccine to make certain travel plans easier or to continue to hold out.

        Would you say that the Church of Harvard’s recent (?) embrace of explicitly Satanist-type imagery is just the latest step in the fashion cycle of trying to be transgressive to pwn the squares? That is, now that mere atheism no longer shocks people, these types paradoxically have to explicitly embrace demon worship to continue to upset the sensibilities of regular people and, therefore, differentiate themselves from the plebs?

        • jim says:

          Satanism goes a very long way back. We would expect it to come further and further up front as leftism goes further and further left. We are so far post Christian that it is unlikely to shock any plebs under ninety, so, probably not transgressive to shock the plebs. It just that the masses need religious observance and religious festivals, and Satanism is all that elites have.

          They see people hungry for bread, and all they have is stones, so feed them stones.

          Rituals like Christmas, graduation and the investment of a professor used to be explicitly Christian religious. They purged all the religious elements, and left people hungry.

    So what determines when something becomes a holiness spiral?

    For example, with covid, while it’s clear the CCP waged a propaganda campaign on behalf of their authoritarian, surveillance-state approach, it isn’t entirely clear why we got a scenario where politicians could only be blamed for errors in one direction (not strict enough).

    Once you get a situation where people in power can only be blamed for errors in one direction purity spiral is inevitable, but it isn’t entirely clear to me why that became the case with covid. For example, it’s not like there was no pushback from doctors, demonstrators, libertarian-ish politicians, etc. against the corona-doomers, yet somehow the corona-doom worldview became the dominant one such that, seemingly the powerful could only get in trouble for insufficient corona-doom, not excessive corona-doom. How did this happen?

    For example, one can imagine a hypothetical where social welfare programs spiral completely out of control so that the whole budget is inflated away into ever-growing UBI payments but the politicians erring on the side of too generous never get in trouble whereas those erring on the side of austerity do, yet that, so far, has not happened. Why?

      Happened in the 70s. But elections still mattered and Regan got into power and shutdown inflation.

      It might happen again shortly but this time elections don’t matter.

      The COVID spiral was necessary to get rid of Trump, so all the priesthood pushed it. They also noticed it they could gain an amazing amount of power with it, so they pushed even harder. Today it’s being used as the basis to abolish free speech once and for all for the benefit of the dictatorship.

        I will say that I experienced the seeds of the covid spiral as early as 2009, when I was quarantined in China after having caught the swine flu, most likely on the plane to Shanghai. I was required to live in a hospital until my fever was gone for 24-48 hours (took 5 days total), which is nothing compared to the treatment of even wholly asymptomatic, vaccinated travelers with negative tests today, of course, but the draconian approach to testing, wearing space suits to clear out my whole hotel, etc. was already in evidence.

        The disturbing phenomenon that is coming into focus for me relatively recently is how, when an authoritarian regime increases communication with a less authoritarian regime, the result is not always freedom contagion among the citizens of the more authoritarian regime, a pleasant fiction Americans learned from the Cold War. Rather, as we are seeing now, there may be contagion from the more authoritarian politicians to the less if e.g. demands for safety can be made to trump demands for freedom.

        Sadly, the real lesson of the Cold War might be that material prosperity inspires envy, not freedom inspires envy.

        • Pooch says:

          Holiness spiraling is fundamentally about status. Some priest gains status by doing something and other priests start piling on doing the same thing but harder. Disease is low status. “Curing” disease with “science” is high status. I suppose it was just a matter of time before the Cathedral priesthood started holiness spiraling on that.

        No Child Left behind was leftist holiness spiraling, not conservative holiness spiraling. It was not excessively high standards, but radical further lowering of academic standards.

        It was accreditation for everyone, everyone’s a winner, blacks only underperform for lack of self esteem, so the state must further raise their self esteem by making all accreditation worthless.

        Socialist housing has repeatedly been tried, with the usual results of such measures, and it has been tried most vigorously and most persistently in New York, with effects similar to urban bombing in World War II.

          If not for participation trophies the Chinese would absolutely own the elite institutions because their students get outside help like Confucius Institutes and study groups for themselves to win an unfair advantage. Declaring everyone a winner is less of a lie than a fake meritocracy. Academia is a contest between liberal cheaters and leftists declaring everyone equal in legitimate self defense (even if many of them quietly know better, especially the You Know Who’s), but all that is certain is that conservatives consistently lose, but still force their children into school anyway and still pay to keep the system running. Anyone with intelligence needs to learn liberalism, leftism, or Chinese.

          The revolving door corruption machine is a real thing in private business and it is clearly morally wrong and impoverishing. The ideal corporate elite model where there’s instead a one way valve for government workers to become the “officers” and mail room wage slaves to become “NCO’s” is how things ought to be run. Anything else just results in feedback and both government and business being bled by leeches.

          Socializing housing actually makes the economy as a whole LESS socialist because it frees up more capital for legitimate businesses, besides the obvious benefits to affordable family formation. The failures of socialist housing are reverse Potemkin villages meant to falsely discredit a good idea.

            > I still don’t know how Bush II beat Pat Buchanan

            Elite backing in grossly rigged Republican primaries. Trump’s election was the first legitimate Republican primary win a very long time, and likely the last. If we ever have a legitimate election result again, it will only be through measures similar to those deployed by Julius Caesar and the NSDAP.

            > If not for participation trophies the Chinese would absolutely own the elite institutions because their students get outside help like Confucius Institutes and study groups for themselves to win an unfair advantage.

            Outside help to perform meaningless memorization tasks is a perfectly fair advantage.

            Further, I have worked with Chinese engineers quite a bit and they are superb at memorizing things without understanding them, and therefore should perform substantially better in academic computer “science”, even though they perform substantially worse at some engineering tasks.

            Right now the Chinese government is attempting to implement Opal to protect itself from the NSA powning the communist party’s computers, but, alas, it is being implemented by Chinese engineers – implemented absolutely correctly according the Opal specification, but probably not correctly according to the intent and spirit of the specification, the intent and spirit of the specification being to prevent a hostile party from powning your computers.

            Chinese are genetically superior to whites at meaningless academic memorization, due to a couple of thousand years of the mandarinate system.

            > The revolving door corruption machine

            The *regulatory* revolving door is the corruption machine. It is government corruption, not private corruption. When I pay obscene amounts of money to a “””consultant””” in order to get regulatory approval of some private action, I am not being corrupt, I am being shaken down by corrupt regulators. The bureaucrat’s lawyer had a chat to my lawyer, who told me to give the “””consultant””” a pile of money. The fix is to abolish regulation and imprison strangely wealthy regulators, not to change private business.

            When MF Global appointed Jon Corzine CEO of MF Global through revolving door, Jon Corzine being a senior politician and powerful regulator, it was the investors in MF Global who got burned. It was a shakedown of investors by politicians and regulators. Those who made him CEO were not corrupt, they were screwed by politicians and regulators who saw their big pile of cash sitting around and wanted some. Making a top regulator CEO did not give MF Global an unfair advantage, it was capitulation to an unfair disadvantage. We should have shot Jon Corzine when the money went missing.

            We did the right thing when Carrian Group’s money went missing. That is what we should have done when MF Global’s money went missing.

            What do you think ‘capital’ is? where do you think it comes from?

            ‘Socialized housing’ has one party appropriating surplus capital from another party – the legitimate businesses – in order to ‘socialize’ the housing in the first place, which is literally what ‘socializing’ means.

                If elections can be stolen and, more importantly, if a large share of conservatives come to believe voting is an ineffective means of registering discontent, that is a huge shift from the historical norm of living memory, if not much longer.

    • jim says:

      Yes and no.

      Christians wrote a lot of stuff on this issue, but did not address it from within the frame of Game Theory, and in the modern environment, where old Christian words have been given satanic and inverted meanings, their writings are difficult to comprehend. We have lost the wisdom that used to exist on this issue, and it is not easy to recover, even if you read old sources.

      I briefly describe how I address this issue in real life from time to time in the comments, but have not posted on it and any length. I guess I need to post on it.

      No one was really applying Game Theory to human affairs until the Pick Up Artist community started applying evolutionary game theory to the mating dance, and the pick up artists did so from within the frame of always operating in defect/defect. (It is important to realize that you always start out in defect/defect unless a woman is abducted or assigned by her patriarch. Romantic love is defection, the classic examples being Lancelot and Queen Guinevere.)

      Constant briefly addresses the issue that the definitions of good and evil need to be public and the subject of social consensus.

      This obviously has the problem that the definition is likely to be destructively manipulated.

      So, as an individual, you have to announce commitment to and reference an older definition. Much older.

      I address this briefly from time to time in the comments, and I addressed it at somewhat greater length in the Logos Has Risen.

      If I want to persuade a contractor that I will pay promptly on completion of inspection, and will make appropriate progress payments from time to time, I reference old testament on prompt payment, “At his day thou shalt give him his hire, neither shall the sun go down upon it” and then say “I interpret this as …”

      And similarly, when I want to tell my wife my expectations of how our relationship should be, I quote Saint Paul.

      In this day and age, demons, whether they be real or metaphorical, still tend to turn their tails and flee from the cross.

      What does it mean to say that a merely metaphorical demon turns its tail and flees? It means that when their is a conflict between current year morality, and the morality that you in fact follow, and you explicitly reference the older tradition, the interlocutor who wants to impose the current year consensus on you is unmanned.

      Good students in school should get good jobs or else the school is just being used as a replacement for family. The increase in salary and reproductive ability for good students should be of greater utility than the “spawning pool” free daycare effect schools have for the underclass. Otherwise, you end up like South Africa. Whites and Asians are devastated by compulsory schooling, while blacks and Hispanics see a relative and often absolute increase in fertility.

      Any change to the current system would be an injustice if anyone who went through it didn’t have his work honored. Reaction, unlike revolution, always makes sure the outer party types are treated fairly, the warriors and priests even if not the bishops. The merchants and grunts can sod off because they get what they want from the schools, a family replacement institution, but they need to be put in their place by their betters and their fertility rate should relatively suffer for it.

        > Good students in school should get good jobs

        Good students in school should not damn well get jobs at all, they should starve until adequately motivated to become hewers of wood and drawers of water, because we have far too many people spending far too long at school, resulting in massive elite overproduction.

        We should have enforceable apprenticeship, the jobs should go to those that successfully graduate apprenticeship, and the good jobs to those went to good apprenticeships and did well in those apprenticeships.

        Someone who has never had a checkbook and has no idea about money signs on the dotted line for one hundred thousand in student debt, learns all about the horrible evils of being white and male, how all our nice things were stolen from the brave warrior women of subsaran Africa, then graduates thinking he is entitled to be one of the elite.

        They cannot all be in the elite, so we get massive overproduction of would be elites, leading to ignorant stupid people making trouble, and you are one of them.

        > But we have to work with what we have for now

        But you are not proposing to work with what we have. You propose to smash the entire economy, so that everything is school forever. Academia is a wrecking ball, and you think it can fullfill its empty promises if it can wreck everything. Your program is far more radical than I propose. I propose to make women property, you propose to make the means of production cease to be property.

        Universities produce priests. They don’t produce scientists, they don’t produce engineers, they don’t produce entrepreneurs. The official state religion only needs a tiny number of priests, and if you produce more than that, the surplus is going to make trouble.

                Compulsory reading and writing is clearly useful, teaching kids stuff that everyone knows, that everyone should know, is useful.

                Vocational training by academics is not useful, because a computer science professor will not teach you how to be an engineer, because he does not know how to be an engineer but how to be a computer science professor.

                We don’t have enforceable apprenticeship any more, but in practice, job related skills are primarily acquired on the job.

                The abolition of enforceable apprenticeship led to massive and obvious decline in job related skills. Knowledge gets lost. The transmission of vocational knowledge visibly and obviously deteriorated.

                The country with the greatest proportion of workers with higher education is Russia, a legacy of the Soviet system. The former Warsaw Pact countries all have the most ‘educated’ work forces in Europe. Meanwhile in West Germany, until recently only about 5% of people went to university. Most people took on an apprenticeship like jim is describing. Japan pretends to have higher education, but Japanese people notoriously don’t do anything at university. Are Germany and Japan more successful economically than Romania? How is this possible?

                There is a weak correlation between school-education and economic success only because truly poor countries can’t afford to waste that kind of money.

                I believe Jim has also made the following points. Schooling in particular valuable skills is also worthwhile, beyond mere reading and writing. Even then, a lot of what you learn in an engineering school is the mindset needed to approach real world problems, and how to acquire and develop more knowledge as needed. In short, almost everything you really need to know, you learn after you graduate, but you wouldn’t have been able to learn those things had you not graduated.

                • jim says:

                  > but you wouldn’t have been able to learn those things had you not graduated.

                  I just don’t see it. What I see is that a degree in computer science is almost irrelevant.

                  If you are hiring a graduate, no one cares if his degree was in computer science or high energy relativistic physics. They care about the reputation of his school for enforcing religious orthodoxy. In actual practice no one, not even human resources, acts as if “you wouldn’t have been able to learn those things had you not graduated.”

                  In the early days, there was no such thing as computer science. Everyone in software engineering was self taught.

                  All useful resources on how to do engineering in general are non academic, though academic papers on specific algorithms are often valuable. Ninety percent of academic research on algorithms is crap, but most good research on algorithms is academic. All useful tutorials are non academic, and their academic equivalents are useless.

                  Someone can graduate with a degree from an elite institution in engineering, and be completely useless – or, as the Challenger Inquiry revealed, not merely useless, but quite dangerous.

                  All graduates need further training on the job, unless they have educated themselves in engineering independently of the institution.

                  In recruiting I don’t see, and I don’t see anyone except human resources, worrying about degrees. They worry about experience in doing similar things.

                  If someone has experience, and no degree, he is fine except for human resources getting in the way.

                  The preference for degreed applicants is similar to the old establishment Anglican policy of only giving state and quasi state jobs to Anglicans – except applied to fields where such a policy has no benefit.

                  If someone has a degree and no experience, and human resources sticks you with him, you are likely to have a problem.

                  From experience, I can say that an academic degree in computing is almost irrelevant to your ability to learn engineering. Unfortunately it is quite relevant to your ability to get a job.

                  I have an advanced degree. It has never been of any use, or given me any substantial benefit. I learned some interesting and important things, but as vocational training, utterly irrelevant.

                  When I interview someone, their degree is still irrelevant. Furthermore, even human resources does not really care if you have a degree in computer science. They care if you have a degree.

                  Just as revealed behavior shows people don’t actually believe sexual harassment charges in real world way, but only as a religious observance, revealed behavior shows that people don’t actually believe that a degree in computer science is actually relevant to engineering, but rather a religious observance.

                  Actual observed hiring behavior only makes sense as religious observance, not vocational training.

                  A degree in physics is quite useful for getting a engineering job, and an advanced degree even better, but absolutely no one cares what field of physics the degree was in. A degree in seventeenth century hermeneutic seventeenth century lesbian basketweaving less useful, but still quite useful.

                  It is similar to sexual harassment charges. No one actually believes that the woman was sexually harassed. They believe that she is distressed, and they are required to care about her distress, and do something about it. What the male in fact did is irrelevant. And the more conspicuously they care about her distress, the less they care about the male’s actual behavior. Similarly, the more they care about a degree, the less they care about ability to actually do the job and the less they care about whether the project will succeed.

                  Degrees are, in actual practice, a religious observance. We should only require religious observance for state and quasi state jobs. When the reaction is in power, to get a state or quasi statal job that performs priestly functions, you will need a degree – probably from Harvard or Yale, assuming we do not need to raze them to the ground and build a new Harvard and a new Yale somewhere as far away as possible from the originals, with a great Cathedral at their center. To get a job that has state or quasi state power but does not have priestly functions, you will need to attend a good Church from time to time, though a degree from Harvard or Yale will be helpful. For the rest, an apprenticeship will be helpful. A degree is unlikely to be helpful. For the officer class, the top officers will have attended a prestigious school to age sixteen or so, where the eminent qualification will be having been a good team player on the sportsfield and good sportsmanlike conduct as judged by one’s peers, rather than academic accreditation. The school will, as now, inculcate the national state religion, but the officer class will not be expected to have paid much attention, unlike now. No one will care very much about the priestly caste at that school certifying that the candidate paid careful attention to the state religion, unlike now.

                  All schools will impose team sports on everyone, and some quasi military scout type activities, with rather more emphasis on lethality than the boy scouts taught, and one’s future prospects in getting a job with one’s peers from that school will be substantially affected by how one’s peers judge one’s sportsmanlike qualities.

                  Nobody argues that skills are (or should be) self-tought. The relevant comparison is an experienced engineer teaching an apprentice or junior engineer.

                  Why do you think that a professor at a college or university can teach better than an experienced engineer working in the field?

                  To demonstrate your point, you may replace engineer with scientist, physician, attorney, etc.

                  Baiscally, everybody learns best from someone who has the relevant knowledge. People who apply that knowledge necessarily have better knowledge than people who never apply it.

        “…We can start with the 200 question certification exam. The most obvious clue that there was something suspicious going on with the test was that there were no questions about Xanax. How do you measure “excellence in all areas of care and practice” without asking about the most commonly prescribed medication in America, let alone psychiatry? Meanwhile there were several questions about pimozide, a medication which appears to be prescribed exclusively by psychiatrists who want to brag about prescribing it. I was repeatedly assessed on my competence in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, but was not asked to display my knowledge of SSI. You might retort that SSI isn’t really psychiatry, but then why is so much of my time spent on it? The only thing I spend more time on is Xanax.

        “But though the missing Xanax was a clue, the insidious problem with the exam was not the content. To see the bad faith obscured by the questions, put aside the usual college freshman complaints of, “why do we need to know about pimozide?” and ask instead, “what happens if I get the question wrong? What happens if I get them all wrong?” The answer is nothing. There are no consequences for failing this test, at all. First, 99% of the applicants pass, I assume the other 1% forgot to bring two forms of ID. Second, even if you fail, you can take it again and again, as many times as you feel it’s worth the $1500. Third: there were a thousand easy ways to cheat, here are three: I could have walked out of the building on an unsupervised “break”; I could have Godfathered an ipad to the back of a toilet; or I could just picked up the phone and called everyone. Who was going to stop me? There is more security at a pregnancy test, which made me wonder if how easy it was to cheat wasn’t… on purpose. The retort is that doctors are expected to behave honorably, but the honorable ones were going to pass anyway. Those in danger of failing– the very people the test should detect– would be most tempted to cheat. Doesn’t the ease of cheating render the test unreliable? If the test is unreliable and 99% pass, why have a test at all? Which reveals the gimmick: the point of the test isn’t to measure competence, but to convey the impression that competence was measured. The point of the test is to say that a test was given– and nothing else.

        “The question is, to whom are we saying this? It is as if psychiatry was in denial about its ordinary reality and was trying to create a different identity through the test itself. A psychiatry where there are right and wrong answers. Where pimozide and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy happens, a lot. Let me anticipate your retorts: that the questions are carefully constructed for their validity; that the test itself “incentivizes” learning; that not everyone prescribes Xanax; that if I’m such a smartypants, what system would I use? If these are your replies, you have missed my point: a flawed system isn’t better than no system at all, it is worse than no system at all, because at least with no system we are forced to be accountable to ourselves for our education. “Not everyone will be so dedicated.” Correct, but now those same undedicated people get an official blessing of their ignorance. Who doesn’t walk out of even this ridiculously meaningless exam not feeling smart, accomplished, up to date? And who would dare, after passing, to criticize the exam that warmed his ego?…”

            The inauguration of maladaptive systems almost always proceeds from Wand Waving; like the Sorcerer’s Apprentice, they do not understand what is actually created when they invoke Power in their desire to create something.

            When someone doesn’t know the extent of how [nice thing] may be furnished – when he doesn’t know how [nice thing] is *already* being furnished – when he doesn’t even *realize* if [nice thing] is already being furnished – and he makes a call for, ‘[nice thing] is nice, would it not be nice if we had more [nice thing]?’, Chimaeras are conjured into being to satisfy that call.

            The problem with wand-waving is not that it fails to create anything that satisfies it’s demands, but that something *is* created to satisfy it’s demands. The Chimaera better fit’s the wandwaver’s simplistically adulterated conception of [nice thing] than the actual [nice thing]s in reality itself. Indeed, they *consume* instances of actual [nice thing] into more of themselves, until there is no longer any actual [nice thing] at all, and naught but the Chimaera remains, and all a group’s action in reality is redirected into an impotent self-referential gnostic parody of reality.

            “…the point of the test isn’t to measure competence, but to convey the impression that competence was measured. The point of the test is to say that a test was given– and nothing else.”

            “…The retort is that the system is predicated on a certain level of honor, that physicians shouldn’t cheat. Fair enough, but if you’re trusting them to be honest in revealing what they learn, why not simply trust that they’re going to learn it? Because the point isn’t the education. The CME exists to say that there is CME; the CME exists to say there is oversight[…]To clarify: the important criticism here is not that the multimillion dollar CME industry is a gigantic money making scam, something on the level of the 15th century sale of indulgences, because to say that would be actually to defend that very system: the money is a diversion, a patsy, what is corrupt about CME isn’t the money but, as the default mechanism for continuing education, it subverts its own purpose. It reduces the interest in actual education so that it can pretend that it explicitly monitors it. If you have a minute to spend on your “education,” the system pushes you towards CME. “Why not do both?” Why do both, who can do both? There are only 24 hours in a day. In other words, the system doesn’t just fail, it forces failure.”

            Men who called for ‘world peace’ created mass chaos; men who called for ‘bread for all’ created mass famine; men who called for ‘universal education’ created mass stupidity; men who called for ‘verified science’ created unverifiable science.

            As has been noted elsewhere ( https://johntreed.com/blogs/john-t-reed-s-blog-about-military-matters/61085187-is-military-integrity-a-contradiction-in-terms-part-1 ), the bureaucratic, managerialist, proceduralist confabulations of bluetribesmen do not actually provide control, greater or otherwise, they are created to provide a *feeling* of control.

            Democracy is to power as porn is to sex. Organizations become colonized by committees, like a fungus spreading through an ant hill, because it can efficiently provide a desired good to a great number of people; and that good is the feeling control. That each member on a voting committee can feel like they have a hand on the tiller of the ship; and the larger the committees, the more people with this feeling it can satisfy.

          Thanks. Still going through it. The first part seems to be mostly scratching an itch I don’t really share. (On this blog would be great to just be able to highlight new comments since the last visit. The cobbler’s children have no shoes.) “Discourse” software and Ron Unz’s site software have a lot of good ideas. Any scheme that depends on readers’ raw ratings, particularly if it requires them to rate everything they read, is just not going to work, IMO.

          I’m really after a system for valuing and compensating IP in general, particularly marginal improvements to existing designs, but also fundamental innovations, with low transaction costs. Valuing valuations, rating how good a person is at assessing worth, is a key issue. How can we assess good taste? It’s as objective as beauty itself, I say, and incredibly valuable. Apple’s $T valuation mostly came from the good taste of one man. The original Hot-or-Not algorithm for rating beauty and rating ratings of beauty had a deep insight, which is why it had to be destroyed.

          A few bits I particularly liked:
          “We need a pseudonymous social network on which it is possible to safely discuss forbidden topics.”

          “What the censor is suppressing is stuff that is not generally known and not generally available. What moderators are needed for is to suppress is stuff that is very hard to avoid” [auto-moderation idea: if a comment added to the existing comment base has a compressed size only a few bytes bigger than the existing comment base, then it adds nothing and can be hidden.]
          “We need to support conversations, thus need to have different and distinct reply links, reply-to links, and approvals”
          “we lack an environment useful for conversations about orders, payments, and receipts, which is going to need integration with the payments and accounting system”
          “A conversation between two people is an encrypted immutable authenticated but unsigned data structure shared between two parties,”

          “The infrastructure proposed in Anonymous Multi-Hop Locks for lightning network transactions is also private room infrastructure, so we should implement private rooms on that model.

          In order to do money over a private room, you need a reliable broadcast channel, so that Bob cannot organize a private room with Ann and Carol, and make Ann see one three party transaction, and Carol see a different three party transaction.

          In this context, a broadcast channel is reliable if each of the participants can know that all the other participants saw the message, or knows that the room crashed and the conversation failed to complete.”

          “You then use symmetric encryption with that shared secret. And then, over the encrypted connection, set up a shared secret based on both the durable public and private keys, and the transient keys. So you now have, for each pair of participants, a shared secret that depends on both parties durable and transient keys. Possession of the shared secret proves you know the secret key corresponding to your public key, and you get perfect forward secrecy because the shared secret and the transient keys are abandoned when there is no further action in the private room.”

          That’s about as far as I’ve gone through it so far.

    Is it possible that groups like Taliban or Muslim Brotherhood will have explicit members elected to governing bodies in the West, and if so, how soon? There are quite obviously ultra sympathetic politicians in the US and UK, but they are often people who would be censured, arrested, or executed if they were in Afghanistan, Somalia, or Pakistan. I’m talking about someone being elected to the House or Parliament as a Sharia candidate. Jim stated that the globally dominant religions are Progressivism and Islam, so if/when this happens, would Progressives “recognize” the threat to their power and fight back?

      Hillary Clinton had a vast intelligence apparatus, which in middle eastern affairs was totally powned by old Islam entryists whose primary loyalties were to the Taliban, Al Quaeda, or Islamic State.

      She remained blissfully unaware of this to the very end, because she is a dumb drunk, and it was politically incorrect for her operatives to draw the matter to her attention.

      So there is a high likelihood that Progressives will fail to recognize the threat to their power until too late.

            I know we can’t go too far down this track, but I’m telling you that in the IC world, there’s been a fundamental shift in methodology. There’s a company called Perspecta. They are the future of indoc. This change started under Obama, but it got kicked into high gear in January ’21. I don’t know how all the pieces fit together, but November ’20 was a very loud, very clear signal.

            • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

              There has been a real shift; what that shift is though, in principle, is removal of inhibitions.

              Folk who are strait, or white, or male (or even, allah preserve us, strait white *and* male), have always been primary targets for ideologies of invidiousness, because they heretofore have always been the most competent and functional demographics. The whole point, eternally and as always, is rationalizations for one to disenfranchise their most capable neighbors, because they don’t want any of them to stand above them in stature; they are their only real competition.

              November 2020 was a signal that the time for unprincipled exceptions is over. It was a signal to all solipsistic partisans of the tranzi faith, to not just hold the idea of biolenninism, but to go out and enforce it against any and all resistance everywhere, because power will now firmly have your back.

              One might wonder at times then, in light of such, what goes through the heads of those curious urban dwelling bluechecking europoids in that land called America (if it’s not 5.56×45, that is). Some, doubtlessly, have now and then sensed an inkling of a notion – that the talking points they parrot seem to have a rather curious quality of sawing at branches they themselves also sit upon.

              Those poor benighted souls who cheered on the farce of old joe’s handlers stuffing their puppet in place, having the sin of being white and or male themselves (jury’s still out on strait), means they’re also on the list for going up against the wall; useful idiots of course can get temporary delay of execution for tactical convenience, up until they have then lived out their usefulness, in serving to hamstring their other more reflexively resistive compatriots first.

              It’s a niggling dissonance in the back of the mind that all ghostface wokes have grappled with in quiet, maudlin moments. Pretending to be gay won’t help anymore. Chopping their balls off and living as a tranny might get them some holiness points, but at that point you might as well be dead anyways. That’s really the implicit telos; the only forms of life allowable for them is life that leads to death. That they will never have a wife. That they will never have children. That they will never be permitted to have an easy or prominent or fulfilling existence. That their only place in the religion they subscribe too is at best as a disposable ATM from which their moral superiors can extract capital, however long as they last. Because they can’t be trusted.

              That is, their kind can’t be trusted to not be successful. That’s ultimately the name of the game you know? They must be relegated to the bugman hovel life flatlined on prozac to cope, because showing any signs of flourishing makes you a target again.

              The message is that people from demographics with shameful histories of being more functionally organized need to have value extracted out of them and transferred to demographics that are more dysfunctional, until we have safely eliminated all functionality, and noone has to feel insecure about anyone looking better off than them (or perhaps rather, noone around to feel insecurity at all). The proceedings of which are of course so oft also overseen by white males as well; ones who call more loudly and more frequently for even greater of such abnegations than the next guy over (*for* the next guy over, natch), thus showing themselves to have a purer, holier faith in the ideals both nominally subscribe too, thus becoming the one the other lemmings all listen too, and thus gaining license for knocking over the apple carts of the only other potential rivals who could actually threaten their machinations to have higher social status than anyone else; other white men.

              (Until the next month, when another one comes in with even louder and even greater exhortations than the former, thus purging his predecessors, until…)

              See how this works?

              If baste islamist figures become mainstream in a (formerly) europoid demesne, it will be because the tranzi establishment already succeeded in destroying it (quite possibly through those arabs in the first place).

                They are a little smarter than we give them credit for. The jihad bloc supports leftist parties in Europe because they correctly recognize that leftist instability will eventually let them take over with their AK47s.

                  I got he was implying that, which is also why i was skeptical. Islam certainly is naturally and innate; for arabs that is.

                  A native son of America or Europe, who cares about America and or Europe, sees it, more or less rightly, as yet another manifestation of hostile aliens he needs to resist for the sake of those he loves; something that, even if comparable, is still something that is not his native Tradition. Highly unusual times it would be where he might see it as something of ‘his own’ instead.

                  Meming islamist faction(s) into more europoid aligned modes of thought would certainly not be a bad happenstance for us (and would likely be an improvement for them as well, for that matter), and i have no principled opposition to the idea in abstract.

                  @Aidan and St. John
                  The figurehead idea is interesting, but I think it is more likely fodder for fiction than real life. My question was based on trends I’ve seen in certain Mid-Atlantic states that are undergoing paradigm shifts in governance. As old guard conservative redoubts become bastions of Progressivism, the slate of candidates is becoming odd. Over cigars and racial slurs one evening, I somewhat facetiously proposed running a campaign for a state senator race wherein “we” picked a few specific demographics to actually target (South Korean, Indian, etc.) and applied a primary/general strategy, meaning we went hard into edge politics to capture a zealous base then walked it back as the race draws to a close. I suggested we restrict funding drives to communities from which our candidate hailed (more than enough money if the campaign is run properly) as well as put out material in Korean, Hindi, Urdu, etc, and no English translations. Ditto for the rallies, straight up foreign affairs. The goal would be to annihilate any prog competition in terms of rhetoric and ideology as well as capture the diversity is our strength/Karen vote. Obviously, everyone thought I was insane but amusing. But I keep thinking about it as a strategy for divide and conquer in local politics. It would only work in a few areas, but those areas are significant.

                  I’m back and forth on this one. You are absolutely correct, but I wonder what kind of tactical options exist in the realm of Left Only politics, like in DC, NYC, etc. At this point, the outer party has no purpose and it may just balkanize. This would be a good thing. The goal of my idea is not to fix democracy, because democracy is the problem and monarchy is the solution. I’m wondering what can be done to hasten the decay in a way that damages Progressivism and draws the right kind of people towards monarchy/reaction. I’m not on board with the Comminator Plan because it feels like leftist strategy (mass murder), it doesn’t draw normies in (it only appeals to the most extreme perspectives), and it only addresses the symptoms. I think a better way is to reduce the status value of herding Left. The obvious question is How? I say this with respect to TC. I share the sentiment, and you may as well, because many things I loved have been ruined by Leftoids and their enablers. But I don’t think it is a plan that can be built on, if the goal is a Millennial Star Monarchy.

                @OC

                Heres my Spenglerian take: Faustian man is going to get Confucius or collapse. A formalization of natural law that stands in for a live faith when nobody really believes anymore. Jim’s interpretation of Anglicanism is the best candidate right now. The faustian victory is colonizing the stars. If we get the restoration of natural law, we will be able to colonize the solar system, and create a long period of general stagnation, but colonizing the solar system would allow new cultures to grow and surpass us.

                I agree with Spengler that race is a quality of an elite within a genetic group. I do not know where new races are going to come from because the men who have race within them are alienated from one another. Give them a reason for cohesion (war and conquest) and we will have strong races again. If we get collapse, the goal is preserving enough knowledge to inspire a new Culture.

I have your corpus downloaded, but I think Jim should comprise the bulk of the text, or maybe just the first text. From my perspective, it is useful and necessary for either path. Of course I would prefer Confucius, but even if the path is Dark Age 2, the Book of Jim will be a good thing to have.

                  Jim, or anyone else, do you have any suggestions on where to start reading about old type Anglicanism?

                  What is you guys’ plan for when the Established Churches all proclaim you neo-Cathars and the State actively starts purging? Jim’s Christianity is deeply heretical according to the Pope and every major Patriarch. Sodomy is becoming/has become a Christian sacrament too. Jim repeatedly declines being a Prophet, and I wouldn’t like to see him martyred, of course.

                  The classic solution to this problem is giving the Pope the Finger, of course. But that was done by Henry VIII who had an immensely powerful land and sea force under his command. What do you have?

                  What did the original Christians have?

                  We have the truth, and our enemy has lies.

                  This undermines their cohesion. With the pretense of democracy quietly abandoned, they have no means of resolving elite disputes except by killing each other – though normalcy bias will probably keep this from going all the way to tanks rolling back and forth through American cities for some time. The quiet Clinton death count was pretty high, and a much higher death rate is likely to come out of the shadows before long. When the Clintons murdered Epstein, it was not so much that the operation leaked, as that the boat had no bottom.

                  A state needs a state religion, and this state’s religion is about to die.

                  There’s one major establishment religion in America: Poz Demon Worship. There’s plenty of Christians but they’re without churches who are not controlled by their enemies. And as the churches openly declare themselves for the Poz they empty out, much as the boy scouts have.

                  We mostly intend to play the long game, so that we will not be a target until our enemies no longer have the cohesion to purge us.

                  It is still a bit eery how completely over the top Jim’s blog is ignored. With Jim having presented an actual plan for Trump to autocoup, you’d expect some buzz at least. I think in that sense we should not underestimate our enemies: my guess is they want some dirt before they direct any attention whatsoever to this place. They understand that if they ever call attention to this place, it needs to be Trotsky’d, not Streisand’d.

                  Well to put it into some perspective, we can for instance speak of several anonymous mongolian finger-painting appreciation boards many times the size of corners of the net like this, in terms of both posting and eyeballs, yet you will rarely if ever see them explicitly mentioned in official voices of power.

                  In large part, ‘internet stings’ are outsourced to voluntary auxiliary thoughtpolicepersyns; which in most cases means, people getting fingered for publicly available postings on antisocial-media connected to their real identities.

                  Consider Scott Alexander: his blog was in the same ballpark as Jim, and he was important enough to feature prominently in the NYT.

                  I imagine journos are pretty sensitive to blogs; they are natural bloggers themselves, after all. A successful blog, which is mighty hard to create, naturally attracts attention, if not outright envy, from the journalist class.

                • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

                  What made Scott different is that he explicitly courted the official church and tried to play ball with them.

                  Perhaps you are more right than I am, hard to tell, but Jim has been talking truth to power for a while now, and the audience has been steadily growing. Can’t imagine that not catching some journo’s attention.

                • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

                  There was a brief moment a few years ago, around 2015 or so, where there was a spate of journalists in third-string outlets making hysterical point-and-sputter pieces about the lovecraftian horror that was ‘The Dark Enlightenment’, but in the event, they either lost interest, or preferred not to gaze in the abyss and go back to more usual suspects closer to home to point-and-sputter at, or word came down from above to ignore it, or some combination thereof.

                  Likelyhood of being mentioned in a rag is almost uniform with whether you are doxxed or not. A modern journalist is basically a blogger; he is also a namefag, who will tend to consider it ‘beneath his dignity’ to speak of anyone but other namefags.

                • Kunning Drueger says:

                  I think there’s two parts to this. On the one hand, JB is so beyond the pale that “serious” media assets can’t see the blog. It’s literally jibberish to their perception. So they see no need to address or rebut it. For all the hindsight hate levied on Moldbug, his strange brew of excessive verbage and thoughtcrime-lite was incredibly effective at capturing the attention of people who were, or considered themselves to be, outside of the status quo/common knowledge sphere. The other part, and this is speculative but unsettling if accurate, is that the Eye has seen JB, is keeping an eye on JB, and if/when society gets to a point where the payload here goes from fringe to relevant, are prepared to annihilate the memeplex root and branch. (I’m not playing the “× is a fed!” game, but a lot of the autodefense here goes after entryists and shills while paying no mind to the “can you clarify in granular detail please” posts. I’ve asked for details, so I’m not trying to be a hypocrite, but there is a danger to specificity when someone is putting together a dossier, case study, or investigation.) As the above linked YT account points out often, NRx is not a plan for politics, it is a framework for interpretation. It could be that the Eye is not concerned with the method, but is very interested in the possible results. I’m not shying away from my effort to codify, but I am trying to be cognizant of the threats.

                • jim says:

                  > while paying no mind to the “can you clarify in granular detail please” posts

                  Our enemy’s reality blindness works in our favor here. Any granular detail contains what are them fnords, which blind them.

                  They cannot see us, because they cannot see the fnords.

                  They could see Moldbug, because he crept up on the fnords slowly and indirectly.

                  His fundamental strategy was to woo a hostile elite to act in their own best interest, so he wanted them to be able to read what he said, but they cannot act in their own best interest.

                • Kunning Drueger says:

                  Was it foolishness? Ignorance? Compassion? Vanity? Maybe, for all of his powers of historicity, observation, and deduction, he just couldn’t see the stunning self-destructive impulse ubiquitous in the progressive elite. After all, he is one of them by his own admission.

                  I know the namefag position. I disagreed before and I was wrong, but do you think that no good will come of Gray Mirror, or any of the other “in the open” NRx projects?

                  Never read it, assuming sight unseen that it is worthless.

                  Since you mentioned it, I read a bit of it. Worthless. He dances around trying to say what needs to be said, and in the end, does not say it. It is Old Moldbug verbose diversionary flimflam that he used to use to sneak up on his point, but now he sneaks around his point.

                • Kunning Drueger says:

                  I imagine you and he would have a very full, informative conversation, then the things you’d both write after it would be… intense? Insane?

So I say that GM is not worthless; it holds no value for the initiated.

                  I’m halfway through listening to the Moldbug podcast pooch linked earlier. It’s fun. I feel most of what he talks about is UR recycled and re-applied to current events, but recycling UR is not all that bad.

                  His analogy on complaining about critical race theory made me laugh: ‘imagine a man lying in coma who is anally raped every night. But one night he is raped with more force than usual, so much so that he (subconsciously?) notices the rape and he (subconsciously?) starts to complain, not about the usual everyday rape, but about the slightly more forceful than usual rape.’

                • Pooch says:

                  I liked his idea on the same podcast of the right co-opting CRT terminology to mean exactly what it should mean about race instead of trying to say we are all colorblind like the normie cons do. Need something stronger.

                  Andrew Anglin never mentions Jim, but it’s clear from his essays and comments over the years that he’s gone from not reading JB at all to reading it all the time.

                  I’ve been reading the Grey Mirror posts, the free ones anyway. Imo they’re pretty good. Moldbug is still explicitly “a monarchist”, which doesn’t seem to me like sneaking up on / around a fnord. He says it in a few places but the most recent I can recall is this interview : https://niccolo.substack.com/p/the-agrigento-interviews-curtis-moldbug

                  “To call me a “techno-fascist” is sheer balderdash–I am a programmer (retired), a monarchist (absolute), and a Critical Race Theorist (new wave). ”

                  As for the “critical race theorist” point, I have to agree with him, insofar as I agree with Marcus Garvey in thinking blacks are unassimilable and should go back to Africa. Sometimes he seems to be handing out blackpills, but I think it’s because he earnestly believes in the truth of such pills, not that he’s doing nefarious Jew plotting to corrupt the minds of right wingers (although maybe Jews do this unconsciously, unconscious Jew bias lol).

                  This was in fact an old trick that got a lot of traffic across old /pol/ and early electric reaction, since there many men simply took the tools of post-modern analysis – which represent the point where a subversive powerbloc has moved past the opening ‘unlocking’ stage, where they destroy an incumbent social order through temporary liberalisms (which are always and inherently temporary) of ‘we recognize no established or predictable essences in anything ever’, and into the stage where it looks to solidify it’s power by being assiduous in exterpating any liberalisms anywhere, making sure they don’t make the same mistake of lending certain ‘rights’ to their targets that their targets foolishly lent to them; then it is no longer ‘no religion’, but ‘our religion’ after all; not ‘no races’, but ‘our races’, not ‘no states’, but ‘our state’, and so on – which, by attempting to sneak Ordnung back in through the back door, opens up the possibility of simply reapplying them to more reality consistent ends.

                  The proles are browbeaten that their naive ideas of ‘i dont see race im colour blind’ which they thought were perfectly good and holy are in fact hopelessly biggoted. At the highest levels of leftist intellectual refinement, crafted to respond to continual failures of leftist ideals, and increasingly restive push-back by their targets, ‘white privilege’ ultimately becomes equivalent white supremacy – which you are supposed to piously refrain from explicitly noticing (or, for the most faithful of unholies, notice and attack *precisely because* of such), and keep the old connotative load of words like ‘privilege’ or ‘biggotry’ from their original contexts in mind, even as they are redefined and inflated to apply in other contexts as a rhetorical two-step (where naturally different words with different exosemantics would apply).

                  In fairness, the original Christians didn’t fare so well until the Roman State adopted Christianity, which took a few centuries. Truth has a slight edge over lies, but it is only a slight edge. To succeed there must also be a path from here to there.

                  @Kunning Drueger

                  I’m asking if Jimian Christianity, which is the real Christianity, also known as National Orthodoxy (condemned as phyletism), hopes to incorporate the Holy See and the many schisms, or to replace them like the Anglican Church. And what will be done about the remaining Internationalist Churches and their (millions of) acolytes? Anglicans mass purged Catholics/Papists, and where necessary, killed them outright. Do you consider Internationalist priests allies or enemies?

                  They took down Social Matter, doxed and threatened one of the principals for ironic anti-Hawaiian comments, and started the downward spiral that sapped all momentum that DE had. JB is the only content source still standing (and Vox Day, but his content is not quite DE, Briggs has limited scope), and Neorxn the only aggregator remaining. This is what soured me on the whole “nationalist” Jew vs “prog” Jew thing — when push comes to shove there is no difference. Moldbug and Alexander learned this the hard way. The loss of Social Matter and the destruction/forcing underground of Hestia Society was a major blow against developing reaction into a mainstream meme. Some of the energy went into Trump 2016, but then that got purged too. I falsely hoped Trump would reverse, or at least slow down, the trend, but I know better now.

                  Also, attempting to subvert and use enemy memes against them was what I tried (with some success) in 2014. It came to an end in 2016-17 when “Free Speech” became FreezePeach and “Free Assembly” became Charlottesville. It was then that I received divine guidance to never use Leftist rhetorical weapons because they’re loyal to Sauron and will betray me at the time of greatest need. “Free Speech” was only a tool to get a Christian nation to accept Piss Christ and “Free Assembly” only applied to Commie rallies (and now to Bugger rallies). Once the Piss-Christ-Bugger Party is in-charge, it all unravels.

                  Even his jokes are cucked. This “joke” deliberately has a man being “raped” instead of a woman to avoid getting Anglined over “rape jokes.” “Anal rape” of a man is not a thing because there is no involvement of “consent” in buggery — it is always a crime. Violent buggery is punishable for one party, non-violent buggery/”consensual” buggery punishable for both parties.

                  The issue you raise is real and relevant, but at this point I feel as if it is very much cart before horse. Changing variables of reality always doom pre-planning to recalculation and improvisation. It is foolish to have no plan and equally foolish to have one plan. As usual, the path we take is the path we’ll make, so important questions will require appropriate answers when they become relevant and we have the capacity to generate real answers. I see no need to peruse paint swatches when we don’t even know where we’re buying property.

                  I’d say the main things that helped make Jim’s blog a long-term survivor, is 1, taking proactive measures to avoid hosting plugs from simply being pulled, 2, taking proactive measures to prevent doxxing (personally and of other contributors alike), and 3, explicit articulation of the topic of HIV positive entryists into Based spaces looking to spread the poz, how they inevitably identify themselves in the pursuit of such, and the dealing with of such in like kind. That takes away most of the easiest means by which the polygon tries to stamp out competing religious thought.

                  The only other figure i can think of that has achieved a similar feat over the course of non-insignificant public output is Andrew Anglin; and when you look at it objectively, one must marvel at the sheer level of heroism he has displayed over the years. I can’t think of a single figure that has not either squished into cuckoldery or just ducked out into hiding after being squeezed with the kind pressure he has repeatedly sailed through. Yet he has gone years nigh on to a decade through such fire and flames without so much as wavering an inch, and come hell or high water, he would figure out a way to get The Mail though.

                  If you pass both tests, you are still a plant, but at least we know who is not planting you.

              Alliance with Islam against a common enemy has had a very poor track record for the last twelve centuries. Allying with US intelligence and simultaneously allying with those US intelligence is seeking to destroy is absolutely in character with Islam, and in recent years it has been doing it a great deal. Such alliances have had bad results for both US intelligence and for those that US intelligence is seeking to destroy (as one could predict on twelve centuries of past form).

          They never took anything from you because it was never yours though, in my opinion that’s unhealthy victimism that leads to powerless and unproductive rage. I prefer the vigor and strength of our ancestors, we’ll just conquer and build our own world like our ancestors did before us.

          I don’t think most people arguing with you about mass killing think you’re “bad” or are arguing with you out of a false pretense of morality like progs do, they just don’t believe there’s a genuine productive point to it. I myself though I’m not against it, I’m not entirely sure killing so many people would lead to anything. I’d rather castrate the men and enslave them for dirty labor, women to be used for sexual slaves and maids.

          Progs are only dangerous because they are parasitizing the power structures that our ancestors built, otherwise they’d be worthless dogs yelping to the air. As long as we had our own power structures, they’d be no trouble and I’d personally enjoy a greater schadenfreude seeing them suffer as lowly slaves hand washing our toilets and such. Of course, the occasional throw from a helicopter into the main street and then make his fellow slaves clean it for enjoyment is good too. Remember the wise Romans had coliseums, it’d be amazing to see a lion slowly but surely eating a journalist and seeing his fellow glowers cower and tremble at the sight of it, knowing they’re next in line.

            • Atavistic Morality says:

              Rock beats rock, in reality nothing beats rock except a bigger or better rock, though paper can help acquiring it. The only thing standing between politicians hanging on posts and those willing to do the hanging is a rock called police, a rock called military. And those rocks exist because of the inertia of a power system founded by our ancestors, progs are simply parasites gaming it for their own benefit.

              The truth of the matter is that I live as I want and do as I please in most ways and no prog can tell me otherwise, only the police can because they are too many for me to fight. But I can also game the system established to avoid them so I’ve been untouchable anyway. Muzzle? Nope. Lockdown? Nope. Respect wahmen? Hell no.

              Niggers in South Africa were under the impression that they were hot shit, they have rapidly found out that without the rock called US military backing them they are nothing against a bunch of white farmers too tired of them.

              China and Russia increasingly doing whatever the fuck they want and the good old Federal Government of the US can do nothing about it, since their weak inertia driven power systems are empty and only usable against incest loving sand niggers and atomized whites. But even the sand niggers are winning and will win in the end.

                  They were ordered to protect the faggots the same way the cops protect Antifa. Antifa would be beaten, run over, and gunned down in almost every city in America without police protection.

                  Hell they had Antifa/BLM marching around rural areas not far area last year and they had to police cars in front and behind them on a country road to avoid having them run over by good old boys in pickup trucks. No cops around and it would have been open season on Commies.

I understand the catharsis of putting paid to the assholes that are actively depriving my children of a stellar future, but the excessive chatter about mass killings is a very shortsighted, leftist inclination. Time and again, the forces of chaos take power and set about teaching lessons for the ages with predictable results. Convert or die, reeducate or die, die now or die later, these all culminate in an entrenched opposition unable to calculate self preservation. The institutions must be seized and razed. The agents of chaos must be located and dispatched with extreme prejudice. New institutions must be erected and built to withstand attacks in the future. Mass killings of everyone who’s glanced leftward is a childish fantasy. No elite worth having will be convinced by autistic rage. Consider which elements of chaos ended up winning over the elites of antiquity: it wasn’t the Bolsheviks, it was the soft spoken, seemingly reasonable elements arguing for a better future. Yes, they were deluded and/or lying, but their argument was convincing enough to capture the majority of Brahmins.

You know, those leftists you’re talking about are the children of the most adamant francoists, the moment he died they all turned. The problem wasn’t necessarily related to specific people, there was a systematic problem like you’d find in a communist country. The incentives and social levers were all wrong, Christianity was already converged and the meme of high education spread, killing people wouldn’t have made a difference. Franco was a soldier, not a ruler, he had no idea what he needed to do for sustainability and viability. And to make matters worse, he broke bread with America leaving himself open to direct influence. The man he chose for king and raised himself since he was a child was literally the one who made democracy possible and his fail safe Carrero Blanco was assassinated by CIA under pretenses of ETA.

                  No way. This is a huge mistake. Enslave Leftists, and they go from being a liability to an asset. Now your people want to maximize the number of Leftists around. They’re also eventually going to bond with their slaves and feel the natural protectiveness and loyalty of the patron to the client when they should instead be forming this bond with lower-ranking men who are actually on our side.

                  There’s a tendency with slave owners to treat their slaves like pets and value them over their own people. This isn’t a big deal if they can’t reproduce. Any future slavery should include forced sterilization.

                  The secondary issue is using slavery instead of creating labor saving devices. A high cost of labor is a benefit in the long run as it forces investment in machines to make labor more cost effective. Slavery undercuts this as more investment is put into capturing and training slaves rather than increasing the value produced by labor.

          Putin is not the Hero Russia needs. His Russia is more like if/when ISI starts running Pakistan directly. At the time of Soviet collapse, the only non-insane organisation still standing, not only with guns (which the Army also had) but with political stability, was the KGB. So they did the right thing and moved into the Kremlin after cutting a deal with Yeltsin. This had a lot of plus points, which is seen in Russia, but also a lot of minus points because KGB is essentially the ghost of USSR. It lacks vitality and new blood, and once Putin is dead Russia comes into play again. Putin seems painfully aware of his doomed position, and is trying desperately to “restore” Orthodoxy to replace post-USSR-ism as the Russian State Religion. I’m sure he realises that an “Orthodox Restoration” doesn’t just require Christ, but also Peter the Great. At least I hope he does.

          It would likely trigger war with the US. Other idea’s I’ve heard is the Russian elites are not onboard with it and Putin doesn’t want to push too hard and trigger war with the US at the same time. Personally I think he’s dodging on it because he doesn’t have a son to pass the title of czar onto. He doesn’t want to rock the boat too much as he gets old.

          From my perspective it seems would be quite easily to reestablish patriarchy, but the reality is almost no one rolls backs women’s lib without a long period of Anarchy. Once a civilizations give women rights that’s almost always the end of the civilization.

            Yes, but why is it so? What is so hard about it? Why does the state not treat possession of a woman the way it would treat possession of a cow?

            One problem I do see is the father husband conflict – fathers are reluctant to let go of daughters, and always fail in hanging on to them. So are reluctant to allow husbands to have full possession. When we had a social rule that woman had to be married if sex occurred, or the plausible appearance that sex had occurred, and the wife’s identity was subsumed to that of the husband, (coverture) there was a tremendous amount of social stress caused by unnaturally prolonged virginity.

            It will not do any good to enforce paternal authority if dad blithely sends them off to whore school. The advantage of anarchy in restoring patriarchy is that fathers are under heat to marry their daughters off.

            Assyria was the first state to recover following the Bronze Age collapse, and my interpretation of their marriage customs is that before the collapse, dads sent to their daughters to the temple to be whores, and post collapse, the state put the heat on dads to marry them off as virgins at a certain age.

            This is consistent with JD Unwin’s encyclopedic survey of peoples, cultures, and civilizations, “Sex and Culture”, though Unwin gets the glaringly obvious causation backwards.

            Vladimir Putin is a pragmatic leader who does what he can given the resources at his disposal. Donald Trump was overthrown because he had no elite support within the established order; even if he called upon the militia the woke military would most likely crush any type of insurrection.

            Government is not a regime’s leaders, government is a regime’s administration. Putin cannot build roads alone, cannot collect taxes alone, cannot muster armies alone, and so forth; if he wishes to accomplish a task he must have people below him who support his efforts. The lie of democracy is the Progressive emphasis on the temporality of a country’s leaders relating to a regime’s association as “authoritarian” or “democratic” when the actual liberty of a nation lies in the secular or non-secular religion of its ruling elite.

            At the moment Putin cannot crown himself Tsar and restore patriarchy even if he wanted to because monarchy is fundamentally a religious institution and the Russian administrative government is not Christian enough. In order for a Russian President to become Tsar he must build an elite faction within the government who will support him when the Patriarch of Moscow puts the crown on his head.

        • neofugue says:

          > I’m not very familiar with Russia’s current political situation. What’s theoretically stopping Putin from reinstituting patriarchy?

          Putin cannot yet restore Christianity to Russia because he does not have the resources to do so even if he wanted to. The Church in Russia lacks the necessary infrastructure to administer such a transition.

          As an aside, insiders obtain the most pertinent information regarding the inner workings of the Church in contemporary Russian society. Patriarch Kirill has survived six assassination attempts, but this information is only known among high-level connected clergy and those close to them.

          Most outside of Russia are unaware of the degree to which Communism destroyed the church network. Today, the Church has only 39,000 parishes and 80,000 clergy in a country of over 146 million people, thus it does not have the resources to administer patriarchy under the Russian government. There are no Russians alive today who have memory of the country before the Revolution, and as such Russia is not a religious country with most attending services only a few times a year. When the Russian faithful reaches 10 to 20% of the population the church will be ready to make its move.

          Most Orthodox do not consider the Muslims to be an problem. A third of the Tatars are Orthodox and there is a high level of intermarriage, with many Tatars and Russians with mixed heritage in the clergy. Many ethnic Slavs in Russia are anxious about their position because they are debased and as a result not having enough children; however, these fears will subside when Orthodoxy is restored.

    Yale might be the heart of the Cathedral, and I can’t believe I had the greatest respect for them at one time. Only 1.2% of its graduates claim to be future entrepreneurs, and most of them are probably rich kids faking it or poseurs looking to pad their resume for a prestige employment in the future. Few of them want anything to do with the South.

    Most of these “elite” graduates are future wage slaves just like anyone else facing a 50%+ cost of living skew above the average and the top 20 employers list is biased towards corporations that demand 80+ hour work weeks. Meat grinders. But they’re only making $71k a year, despite being the formerly most elite aspirant destination from just a generation ago.

    I can see why they’re not encouraged to try to have big families, but rather become bohemian deviants instead. They can’t afford traditional family life. I can’t see why most others don’t see this now. I didn’t when I didn’t have this information available in school, but that was different.

    This is why people turn to some form of socialism out of despair at being forced into fake meritocracy and left poorer for it. Either socialism or some kind of consolation prize Potemkin village lifestyle bailout for pre-internet college graduates. Generation X really came true…

    • jim says:

      Inability to form families is nothing to do with money. The working class of the 1945 had far less money than people today, and the peasants of Afghanistan and Timor Leste a lot less than either.

      The shortage of virgin pussy has everything to do with inability to form families.

      Over history and geography, over time and distance, there are enormous variations in wealth, and they have no measurable consistent effect on the fertility rate short of actual famine.

      Socialism is the promise of free stuff. Which promise is made over and over again, and every time is massively broken once the socialists run out of other people’s money.

      Stupid people go to university, professors promise them that dutifully attending college will get them a good life, but it does not. It never did.

      In the days of our greatness, the elite did not go to university. The Royal Society was not an academic institution. If you read old books from the 1930s and 1950s depicting top members of the elite, men born to wealth who subsequently even wealthier, and are funding the expensive events of the story, they went to work out of high school. The story line of 1930s science fiction books often features a great scientist, who in earlier science fiction seldom has an academic degree or academic affiliation, though in 1940s science fiction we see scientists that came out of university, but in 1940s fiction, a wealthy elite and powerful men who did not attend university. When they chat to other wealthy men, they knew them from high school or family connections, not from university.

      Early science fiction often has some superscience crisis, and scientists start chatting to other scientists about it. It is not academics chatting to other academics.

      The idea that university magically pops you into the elite is new, and was false from the beginning.

      University expansion was a ponzi scheme. The only good jobs it ever delivered were jobs in universities, and activities where the state restricted entrance to academic graduates.

      The time has come for the Ponzi to collapse, but possession of state power by the state religion based in the universities keeps it alive. It is time for the dissolution of the monasteries.

        It seems to me that the main reason why people now go to get higher education is the thirst for status. If people went there in order to get an education conducive to finding a good job, so many sociologists and psychologists would not be graduated. It is also a legitimate way to postpone growing up for several years.

        How long does it take for the state to abolish the regulations preventing new virgin pussies from entering the market? How long does it take to privatize the means of production (female vaginas)? The socialist economy should collapse (either due to internal problems, or due to external forces), but is it rational to expect this? The Roman Empire fell for centuries.

        As long as your fertility is below the reproduction rate, you will have a noticeable shortage of virgin pussies, even if all is well with the marriage law. The production of virgin pussies takes time.

                This sounds sensible enough, but it’s too nuanced for propaganda purposes, and it doesn’t really even solve the problem.

                We agree that the Samaritan was good because he helped a far-off stranger in need. I’m going to help far-off and needy Somalis, so I am good. You don’t care about the Somalis, so I am better than you.

                You say it’s wrong for me to help the Somalis at your expense. But we’ve already established that I’m better than you; this gives me the authority to make you do the right thing. You should even thank me for giving away your money, your safety, and your children’s future, because we all agree it was a commendable action, and you wouldn’t have done it if I hadn’t made you.

                  There was a nuanced reply to this:

                  Article 14 of the 39 articles, which ever person possessing or seeking state or quasi state office had to promise to adhere to:

                  XIV. Of Works of Supererogation.
                  Voluntary Works besides, over and above, God’s Commandments, which they call Works of Supererogation, cannot be taught without arrogancy and impiety.

                  So if my neighbor wants to make me do the right thing, he is ineligible for state or quasi state office.

                  Unfortunately, a whole lot of the arrogant and impious, finding themselves ineligible for state or quasi state office in theocratic Anglican England, moved to America and founded Harvard, where every day they continue to grow more arrogant and impious.

    Thoughts on Elon Musk and his first marriage:

    https://www.marieclaire.com/sex-love/a5380/millionaire-starter-wife/

    As demonstrated by the postnuptial agreement Musk was clearly aware of the divorce industry and was able to have five sons with an elite wife despite her being a degenerate irreligious feminist.

    • alf says:

      As we danced at our wedding reception, Elon told me, “I am the alpha in this relationship.”

      Based and redpilled.

      The ex sounds pretty ok tbh. The change in lifestyle must’ve been incredible, I don’t judge her for feeling left out. Elon clearly wanted/needed her to play a role she did not feel comfortable with.

            Cominator’s talking about Brazil as far the crime and disorder model goes and he’s correct. Jigaboos are not large enough in population to really do what they do in South Africa, but large enough to see the insane out of control crime levels that Brazil. When in the city I watch for car jackers all the time now, and put my hand on my gun when I see niggers anywhere near my car.

              What they do in South Africa though is largely encouraged and mandated by the state. The seizure of white farms for example. I could definitely see that happening in the US in the future if the holiness spiral is left unchecked, where as I don’t believe that has happened in Brazil.

              • Alfred says:

                Blacks are just too small of a population for it. If farms are going to be seized it will be on the basis that it’s native land that was stolen, and white leftists claiming to be Indians will show up to take the land.

                Whites are a tiny minority in SA:

                Wikipeda but probably not far off:
                >The 2011 census figures for these groups were Black African at 80.2%, White at 8.4%, Coloured at 8.8%, Indian / Asian at 2.5%, and Other/Unspecified at 0.5%. The white percentage of the population has sharply declined.

                  44 million (and growing) is plenty, especially with a state religion with negro worship as it’s dominate cult. Percentage is not as important as total number in my opinion. Indians are plenty holy but not nearly as holy as blacks. It’s a smaller cult. I’d say they are more likely to seize farms on the basis that slaves used to work the land there (especially in the South although they could just flat out lie and say slaves were everywhere) and that 40 acres and a mule was never given to blacks therefore they are owed. We are already seeing the beginnings of it coming from Cory Booker.

                • Alfred says:

                  It’s about narrative. Handing over a Farmer’s land in Ohio to jiggaboos isn’t doesn’t flow from it. Leftist use holiness hierarchies to knock over apple carts but only where the narrative fits. As Jim says, what becomes holy is often random, but from what I can tell they tend to prune the directions of spiraling towards narratives they can use to loot. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that leftists are buying up property pennies on the dollar in the areas whites are flee blacks due to the BLM riots.

                  Last year Antifa started dressing up as Indians to push their stolen land and genocide narratives. Today they’re dressing up as Indians to burn down churches(80+ so far). Unlike BLM there’s an a massively larger number of apple carts to knock over using this narrative. This is also a narrative that Americans have a limited defense against thanks to over 100 years of propaganda about it. Even better it’s easier for them to pretend be an injun than a nig nog when they go about looting.

    • Aidan says:

      Looks like the whites shot back this time, with the result that the black looters and black cops ran away. Doubt the black army will do much better. South Africa may well have a white government again by months end, or at least sovereign white enclaves.

          After the collapse of the Roman Empire, everywhere in Europe was still theoretically under the control of some king somewhere, but massive anarchy was still the rule, because having only a few armed men was proof against local authorities. When the Saxons “invaded” England, it was more like a few families with a few armed men would land a boat and build a farm, and the few armed Britons nearby did not have the cohesion to make them fuck off back to Saxony. After a century or two, there were no more romano-briton authorities and only Saxon claims to sovereignty.

          If we become minorities in a hostile but militarily incapable sea of anarchy, self defense quickly becomes conquest and rule.

        The South African government was unable to control a tribal dispute. Whites were. A very small number of whites were.

        So, what is stopping whites from resolving the dispute in white favor?

        To act cohesively, whites need faith to do what needs to be done. Need to agree upon a white ruler, and agree that he should rule.

        To agree upon that, need a faith that tells them that they should agree upon that. The prophet needs to anoint a King.

      Oh I see. Now they can cyber-pandemic the banks down, build back better, everyone loses their savings and can only buy Biden’s Own Bug Tendies at Walmart until their iPhone hears them say “ni##er” in their sleep. Fucking fantastic.

      • Pooch says:

        They are printing endless dollars but it still must go through the central banks. If the banks don’t loan the money out the extra cash just sits in their reserves which is actually a deflationary pressure to the system which the elites want to avoid at all costs.

        Yes exactly this. They can also force spending by having the funds expire if the funds are not spent after a certain amount of time. As an added bonus blacks can also get loans directly from the fed and bypass the banks completely.

      • Mr.P says:

        Tom Luongo, of the “Gold Goats ‘n Guns” blog, has written extensively about this.

        According to Mr. Luongo, the end-game scheme of Davos-crew international-commie global central banks, particularly European central banks, is to cut out primary-dealer commercial banks from government money-printing operations. Commercial banks simply are no longer needed and just get in the way of the central banks. In support of his argument, Luongo points out that firms such as Blackrock can now borrow effectively zero-interest-rate money directly from the Federal Reserve.

        Fed Coin may be part of the plan to eliminate the commercial banks.

        I’m just a fly on the wall; see Luongo’s Great Reset series for more details.

    > Xi Thought is dead. He is trying to bring it to life with a controlled infusion of old type Marxism, which in sufficient dose will destroy the Chinese economy and cause scientific and technological stagnation, but no dose is going to revive the Chinese state religion.

    Please flesh this out if you would (anybody) so that I can see what you see. To start, I wish I better understood what the Chinese state religion even once was.

    I think my puzzlement stems from my stereotype of Chinese people as hyper-conformist autistic-spectrum bug-people grinds (if I can hyperbolize for effect). When I look at Chinese history and culture (or the visible pop artifacts therefrom at least) I see all kinds of cryptic and flowery hocus-pocus, but I don’t see “religion” there, as I understand the word anyway.

    But I can also grasp that wherever there’s a need to conform, and topics that everyone just knows not to talk about, well that’s a religion.

    You’ve also been very clear about that Seven Kill Stele thing. That was religion too.

    It just looks so comical and spergy and dumb to me that I must not be seeing the real thing, but rather what I want to see, a caricature that makes me feel better about myself.

    There is no hope for Orthodoxy. Yes, there is still a possibility that there will be a turn in the right direction, it will become alive, but we cannot build our future on such a fragile foundation. We ourselves must create a social structure for our grandchildren, and not wait for a gift from a kleptocratic anti-people state. Miracles are rare.

    The option of building your own cult looks more tempting. First, being the head of a sect is cool. Secondly, the main problems of modern Orthodoxy can be solved. Membership should be expensive (due to suvorian rules), and the punishment for breaking the rules should be painful (most Christians abuse forgiveness). There should be no single mothers or foreigners in our Church. Ideally, it can be arranged so that marriage is only possible with members of the cult. This is the path to the healthy tribe with patriarchy that people need so much.

    • jim says:

          When Stalin has let the state religion hollow out, and his successors are still willing to suppress competing faiths, but unable to do so competently and consistently, and have no official faith that can compete with unofficial faiths. When that time comes, martyrdom will work.

          • Karl says:

            That sounds reasonable, but one of the very few (perhaps the only) competing faith to the state religion in Western Europe is Islam.

            Your phrase of government officials “willing to suppress competing faiths, but unable to do so competently and consistently, and have no official faith that can compete with unofficial faiths”, is a pretty good description of the situation in Germany with respect to Islam.

            Maybe we are already in a situation where martyrdom would work for Islam

  27. “There is a great deal that is very wrong with Mohammedanism. But there are only two live faiths in power Progressivism and Islam. And as progressivism becomes ever more self-destructive, it is losing to Islam.”

    Islam has been the only ‘living faith’ because it is innate and natural, and not historical.

    “Or perhaps there is a third. Orthodox Christianity. Let us pay our respects to Putin, Tsar of all the Russias.”

    Indeed, other than Islam it is the Orthodox tradition that has the capacity to push back against the Satanic tide of progressivism.

    • suones says:

      Islam has been the only ‘living faith’ because it is innate and natural.

      This is an accurate assessment. Muhammad re-directed Sons of Ishmael into worshipping the Old God of their Father, the Old God of Ibrahim, who lay asleep in the desert while Ishmaelites were corrupted. Islam is indeed natural for Ishmaelites. Of the Christians who realised this, the closest to reality were Templars who interacted with Arabs/Saracens on a daily basis. They dubbed the powerful spiritual force “Baphomet,” who is a Eudaemon for Ishmaelites (and a Cacodaemon for everyone else).

  28. ‘The Taliban exists because Pakistan sponsors it.’

    No. I do not think it is that simple.

    The Taliban exists because non-Taliban Pashtun mobilization have been in a state of paralysis.

    As long as the Central Asian ethnicities were under Tsarist and later Soviet control, the Pashtun rulers in Afghanistan found no domestic challengers to their hegemony. But the moment these Central Asian peoples gained a breather, their co-ethnics across the Amu Darya gained the confidence to resist Kabul.

    Without the numerical strength of the Pashtuns of Pakistan, which is more than the combined population of Afghanistan, Kabul found it difficult to assert a Pashtun Identity on the rest of the country.

    If the Afghan Pashtuns undermine the Durand line to cultivate cross border Pashtuns, Tajiks and Uzbeks will likewise send an SOS to their cross border brethren living in Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, thereby dissolving the very entity known as ‘Afghanistan’.

    On the other hand, if they desist and accept the line as a sovereign border between two sovereign countries then owing to their minority position, the Pashtuns will have to ultimately surrender its cultural monopoly over Afghanistan.

    I think Taliban perfectly understand this dilemma.

    They know that, today, only Islam ensures the sovereign existence of Afghanistan and, therefore, they have an ideology which is straightforward, airtight, and tactically do not lay too much emphasis on their Pashtun character.

    Let’s see how the pieces move on this Khorasanian chessboard.

    • Kunning Drueger says:

      Hank Crumpton maintains that the Taliban made a point of offing some northern warlord with widespread influence in proximity to the 911 attack. I’ve read elsewhere that the Agency had a very quiet, very successful infrastructure for intel/material support in a few of the -stans during and subsequent to the CIA fireworks show in 2001/2002. The Soviet Union was like a heavy blanket, smothering nationalist and tribalist feuds and aspirations. Do you see a potential Uzbek rise as possible? If the major powers get tied up on the water (Twilight War in the Baltic, Trade war in the South China Sea, Culture War in the Western Hemisphere), there isn’t much to stop the accretion of neo-Mongol league in central Asia. Probably wishful thinking, but if any ethno-tribal-cultural-linguistic group were going to rapidly deploy a successful patriarchal monarchy, it’s probably them.

            More likely though, all the great powers around the region (China, Russia, et all), will continue shuffling the central asian chessboard through the foreseeable future, as has ever been the case in history.

      • “Do you see a potential Uzbek rise as possible?”

        I think the Taliban, by coming to an understanding with Iran, has for the time being outmaneuvered any Central Asian Turkic resurgence at the expense of Afghanistan.

        An Uzbek resurgence would mean a severe ethnocultural clash with non-Turkic Tajiks, Hazaras (although they are a Mongoloid race yet culturally they have been Persianized), Pashtuns, etc., not to mention those ‘Uzbeks’ who live in Uzbekistan but see themselves as part of a Persianized world.

  29. Kunning Drueger says:

    Starting a new comment cluster because I feel that this is an important discussion that occurred in the long tail of a tangential comment. Chrysostom wrote a particularly elegant piece that you should read in its entirety down below, and I apologize if my summary is inferior or misleading. Here is the summary:

    Every major 21st century society has a shared problem: critical shortages of Tradition.

    How do you solve a tradition shortage when there seems to be so many different traditions to choose from?

    With so many Traditions, it should be trivial to adopt one, convert to one, or be born into one. But we see that it isn’t trivial.

    “A tradition lives and breathes through its exponents; if there is a shortage of exponents, then you have a shortage of Tradition.”

    The problem is Atomization. A man cannot grow roots with other men. From birth, he is isolated and rootless, being shuffled through family, education, socialization, indoctrination, and categorization. Meaningful communication and development is obviated to the point that all men are trapped in an eternal “searching for connection” stage with no common tongue for connection and growth.

    This common tongue for connection and growth exists. It is contained in the Canon of Man just waiting to be internalized and deployed. “Echoes of the worlds that were, reaching through time, to tangle with the future.” The vitalization of Tradition. Yet we remain divided and constrained. Beings acting in apparent ignorance of Divine Law and further, in ignorance of this ignorance.

    “One must not mistake the flowers of thought for the roots that produce them.”

    The men of today are not reading the rules, and those that do don’t understand them, and those that could decide not to understand them. Most men don’t know where to look for the rules or even think there are rules. Those that happen upon them are contaminated with “anti-pattern memetic hazards,” a sickness of which they are unaware, and fail to derive anything valuable from the interaction.

    The modern condition of a man is failed coordination with coordination incapable men.

    But where is this law, this common tongue?

    Thus sayeth Jim:

    Natural Law Position: right conduct is pursuit of individual self-interest with cooperation.

    Dark Enlightenment Position: law is the self-imposed rules of the group, and the primary law is survival.

    Christian Position: law is the spirit and intent of the Ten Commandments.

    NLP, DEP, and CP seem to yield the same results, but NLP acknowledges yet fails to address non-trivial attainment of cooperate/cooperate equilibrium, DEP has adherents that bridle at the inclusion of the CP, and it is hard to establish cooperation identification, persuasion of intent to cooperate, and deciding what constitutes cooperation.

    • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

      The object of any rightful magisterium, rightful exponents of Perennial Tradition, naturally is not merely to list precepts, but, to the extent such are able, and to the extent such is possible, elucidate why they are so.

      One of the most adroit manners folk accomplish this is through their narratives; where the ways of God, coherence with, and violations thereof, are all neatly demonstrated through the fruits of actions. The power of imagination is to make simulacrums that can die in your place. The poet channels divinity through his muse…

      This calls back to an older debate in the reactosphere in yesteryears, which passed through this blog as well; which of course is a reprisal of a very old and recurrent dynamic: ‘we dont need to over complicate this stuff, all we need to do is just outline the rules and have at it’. But, of course, we have in fact always and already had such outlines; and yet, never the less, we find ourselves…

      You know how the saying goes: first as tragedy, then as farce. For everything you know that ‘goes without saying’, the next generation won’t get the joke.

      • Kunning Drueger says:

        “The goal of the organized wise is to list the precepts and adequately support them so that they are self-evident.

        The simplest way to do so is through accessable parables. Metaphor and analog create space for constructive understanding of failings.

        The trap we fall into is leaving the obvious unspoken. Unspoken is unknown, forever lost to those that follow.”

        We need Laws. Plainly stated, easily translated. Crafted by the Good and Strong so that the Damaged and Struggling don’t have to remain useful idiots of the demon world order.

  31. EH says:

    Few in the service of the great powers have taken the time to understand even the most recent and relevant Afghan history, so have gone in where angels and devils alike fear to tread and been defeated.

    Abdur Rahman Khan in the 1880s and ’90s was the only man to really rule Afghanistan, in the only way it could be done, with an iron fist. It was he who snookered the British into agreeing to the Durand Line, which put the most ungovernable of the Pashtuns on the Indian side of the border, making them the British’s problem. This area, known variously as the North-West Frontier, Khyber, Pakhtunkhwa, and lately officially the “Khyber Pakhtunkhwa” district of Pakistan is still only nominally governed by Pakistan, and is a primary root the ungovernability of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    Abdur Rahman Khan was more ruthless than Stalin and more cunning than than Mao. He wrote a rather frank autobiography in two volumes shortly before his death.

    • jim says:

      His death, however, was followed by the usual bloody and brutal fratricide, from which another strong King, and rather more virtuous King, eventually arose.

      Afghanistan can only be ruled by horrifying methods, but is in dire need of the elite virtue that Islam is unsuccessful in cultivating.

      Afghanistan is the crossroads of Asia, and that is its primary asset. A ruler is likely to be unsuccessful in taxing the peasants. The model of successful governance in Afghanistan is a light tax on goods going in and goods going out, safety on the major roads passing through, and order in the towns on the major roads. When a merchant on those roads gets shaken down or robbed, the King has a chat with the lord of the area where the robbers came from or through. If he does not like the outcome of that chat, he kills the lord. If that does not work, he kills a bunch of people. If that does not work, kills all the men, every male child, and takes the women.

      • EH says:

        He had good reasons for his arrangement of his succession, which he lays out at the start of vol. 2. There really wasn’t a path that would have ensured success, given there had never been a peaceful succession of power in Afghanistan, at least that held together for more than a very short time.

        Abdur Rahman was the first stationary bandit of Afghanistan. He had only 20 years to work. Mobile banditry was stopped cold immediately, the roads were safe for almost the first time. Five years into his reign, he could only find three clerks in the country who knew how to read and write their own language. Ten years after that, he had financed out of his own official banditry many then-modern factories not only for all the needs of war such as gunsmithing, machining, cartridge-making, primer-making, spyglasses, heliostats, but also for soap, candles, tanning, leatherwork, printing, distilling, weaving, sewing, etc. etc. at a cost of millions of rupees (1 rupee = 12-18 USD 2020). Much of the early work, especially the gun work was personally directed by him (he was a gunsmith from a boy, made his own rifles with little more than files, and had a lifelong interest in engineering.) He even had some electricity and telephones. (much of vol. 2 is about all that, as well as stopping corruption, setting up administration, etc.)

        Mere trade wasn’t going to be enough, he lays out the economic and military reasons for his course.

        He really was a universal genius, especially considering he did all that while holding off the British and the Russians, and after a remarkable career as a military commander detailed in volume 1 which reads like an adventure novel.

      • Guy says:

        I understand that history has shown Islam is unsuccessful at cultivating a long lasting successful elite, and that it cannot be cooperated with. Have you, or anyone else, ever laid out specifically what might be the cause of that? Is it just the people that adhere to Islam are deficient, or is it something to do with the religion itself?

        • jim says:

          Absolutely unambiguous that is the religion itself, which not only straightforwardly mandates defection against outsiders, but encourages defection against insiders.

          There is also the problem that Mohamed prescribes that all the sons of the ruler, even the son of a slave, get equal crack at becoming the ruler. Disaster ensues, and you get fratricide and palice intrigue, and the palace intrigue is apt to result in rule by women.

        This is precisely why the Cominator Plan needs to be implemented at the top of the government.

    Hey Jim,

    As a guy who’s been programming since probably before I was born, what do you think is the most based programming paradigm? Functional? Object-oriented? I’m pretty sure you have spoken a fair bit before about template metaprogramming – not that I properly understand what that is.

    I have had plenty of programming experience over the years, though usually fairly small scale things, just throwing together scripts when needed. I think I have a good grasp of a lot of concepts, intuitively, but very little of the formal/theoretical side of things. I know Moldbug has written about how useless CS research is, and I’m sure you would have similar thoughts given what you have said about apprenticeship.

    But I assume, as an example, a good theoretical knowledge of algorithms complexity is crucial to be a “proper” programmer. Where do I go from here to become an actually good programmer? What kinds of things are worth the time investment, and what is BS?

    Perhaps a better way to summarize my question would be: if your sons were in their late teens again, how and what would you be teaching them to program with.

    • jim says:

      Rust and Javascript.

      Object oriented has been largely obsoleted by template metaprogramming.

      structs and unions are best understood as multiplicative and additive types, rather than understood and used through the object paradigm. I don’t think I have ever used objects in an object oriented manner.

      Template programming was an accident, never intended as a programming language. It is thus the world’s worst language that is actually used for useful purposes. One day people noticed that they could metaprogram using templates, but they were never designed or intended for this usage. Rust macros, on the other hand, were designed from the beginning for this purpose.

      Rust is what you get if you redesign C++ from scratch, knowing what we now know, and abandoning backward compatibility with C. Rust is C++ without the legacy of C weighing it down, and the legacy of object orientation weighing it down.

      • The Slick Panther says:

        Thanks for the reply, appreciate it.

      • Dave says:

        By not being backward-compatible with C, Rust forces us to rewrite existing code from scratch, which is something you’ve told us never to do.

        • jim says:

          No it does not. You can call C code from Rust.

          And should do so if there is existing C code, and not corresponding existing Rust code.

          When you have a working program and unit test, you might do maintenance on the C part of that program by doing the updates in Rust.

          Rust is C++ unencumbered by the legacy of object orientation and C compatibility.

          One defect of Rust is that its macro language, though vastly more intelligible and easier to write than C++ template metaprogramming, is less powerful than template metaprogramming, precisely because templates were never intended or designed to be a Turing complete language. C++ metaprogramming is a collection of weird unobvious hacks gaming the language rules in ways they were never intended or designed to be used. It is in this sense a much lower level metalanguage than Rust macros, and thus more powerful. Also hideously programmer hostile.

          The rust macro language is immature, ad hoc, overly complex, and keeps changing. They need a bottom level foundation, and build higher level macro language constructs on top of that.

          (On reading the documentation, looks like they have that now. The third kind of macro looks arbitrarily powerful, but I have not used it yet.)

The women among this group should be auctioned off.

              Are you sure this is true? I seem to remember women from different religions being pretty effective in converting their husbands and children to their faith. And as we know religions are super tribes.

              • jim says:

                That happens when they are operating in a vacuum, as they commonly are. They are trying to find a tribe for their husband and children. If no vacuum, no problem.

                The Mongols had huge problems with their women converting their children, Muslims no problem.

                The wife’s faith is merely a shit test for both husband and faith. Which shit test a half dead religion is apt to fail.

            As Jim says, women have no beliefs of their own. You do not want to punish women for following along with their men, because then you select for even more troublesome women. Women are operating as they are designed, and it is the men that are the problem. We will need to kill off a decent amount of them anyway, just as how you kill a wild dog even if it is not the dog’s fault the master made it dangerous and unruly.

            In a lot of the cities, a Jericho approach is a good idea. On other cities, less so. In the rural areas, almost certainly not. San Francisco and Seattle, for instance, need to be wiped from the face of the earth as was Sodom and Gomorrah. Austin can probably be cleaned up with a general purge of the elite and the queers. I’m not aware of any truly pozzed rural areas that would need more than shooting the few elites that hoped to escape the purge.

              It’s interesting to note that rural areas of Maine only voted 40-50% for Trump where as rural areas of the south and midwest voted 70-80% for Trump. My guess it is the deep Puritan influence on New England.

              • Wulfgar Thundercock III says:

                Actually, Maine isn’t all that Puritan. It’s the fucking invaders from the liberal states fleeing to areas they have not yet ruined. It is Massachusettsification, not the locals. A lot of those rural areas are filled with the vacation homes of shitlibs with high paying jobs in another state or who retired and fled the lunacy. I know some people from Maine and they tell me is is largely the Massholes ruining things. They have the same problem of high-trust, very white areas not knowing they are being scammed, but mostly it is transplants metastasizing in their state.

                • Pooch says:

                  Wouldn’t we also see that same affect in places like Georgia and Pennsylvania, where rich shitlibs from Philadelphia and Georgia buy vacation homes in the rural areas? That doesn’t seem to be the case. It could be the deep Puritan influence of Massachusetts in particular, affecting the neighboring areas, which is unique in that regard.

                  I know nothing of Maine so I’m sure you are right. Could be that the the elite and upper classes are entirely leftist there in the north whereas the local elite and upper classes buying 2nd homes in the south are still somewhat a mixture of rightists.

                > No hymen, into the oven

                based

                In all seriousness, when the ancients mention “virgins” they are not referring to individuals but a class of women who are assumed to have hymens, unmarried women living under their fathers. For example, Saint Jerome laments of virgins who engage in whoredoms detailed in his letter to Eustochium. When God told the Israelites to slay all but the virgins he is not telling them to use doctors to analyze each and every female but to slay all except for the young girls living with their parents.

                This distinction has been lost in the West because society has degenerated to the degree that one can no longer assume a young girl living with her parents is a virgin. Even Canaanite societies had clear distinctions between virgins, wives and wayward girls. While the biological purpose of the Biblical prohibitions on incest are related to genetic decay, the broader spiritual meaning of these laws is to establish that girls should grow up in an environment where she is kept a virgin before being married off. This is why scripture mentions lying with a woman and her daughter as lewdness.

                According to the various women I knew in college, most lose their virginity at around 13 years of age, and it is rare to find a girl who lost it after 16. Thus any girl above the age of 12 ought to be considered a non-virgin unless proven otherwise. Given the average age of marriage for Jewish women at the time of the conquest of Canaan would be from 10 to 14, this heuristic would not be ahistorically dissimilar.

                • The Cominator says:

                  Not based psychotic, even if Wulfgar didn’t mean it literally that way killing every unmarried non-virgin woman especially retroactively just sounds incredibly psychotic (and I’m normally the one who is psychotic about leftists).

                  Anyone who doesn’t see this REALLY needs to get laid, those kind of thoughts only come after months of trying to game women and getting nowhere + no sex.

                  I know this is hard nowadays generally in America but to get it out of your system please see my post on how non chads even spergish ones can easily fuck strippers for often not very much money.

Before calling the kettle black, please extend the same courtesy towards the useful idiots of Leftism that you have for your hookers.

                  The primary goal of wiping out the Canaanites was not based on race but on demon worship, and sparing the virgins was more an act of mercy. In the ancestral environment, males of Tribe A kill males of Tribe B, discard the unwanted females and take the virgins for themselves. One can look at the siege of Carthage by the Romans or the conquest of Prussia in WW2 as historical examples. The purpose of my post was to illustrate the historical definition of “virgins,” and the understanding of the conquest of Canaan.

Yes, girls living with their parents are more likely to be virgins even now. As well as girls who study well, from a complete family, socially “unsuccessful” and autistic, not from the city, do not undress too much when going out on the streets and do not have completely fallen whores in their environment.

                  Careful discernment of individuals in collective and often messy mass-murder type scenarios is not feasible, thus any mercy policy must be clear; for example, kill everyone except for the young girls. There is nothing wrong with falling in love with a hooker and sparing her from a fall-of-Carthage type situation if he can prevent her from lying with other men. However, one who advocates for democide does not have the right to wave his blood-stained finger at others who are not as merciful to the non-virgins. Calling said democide “psychotic” when it involves hookers comes across as the words of a coward who talks big but lacks the guts to kill.

                  As a disclaimer, my preferred solution would be to enshrine Christianity as the official state religion and deny legal, economic and social rights to Progressives, with the FBI-equivalent secret police extrajudicially hunting down any meaningful resistance. The transition would be handled similar to a reverse Nuremberg (with helicopters!) and Denazification. Any Cominator-type democide is out of touch with reality, but given the absolute success of the handling of postwar Germany this less-bloody solution would be sufficient provided the secret police does what is necessary to keep the peace.

                  > If you put some criteria, you can find a virgin over 16 with some effort and luck.

                  The problem lies with the parents. Homeschooled girls are best, but parents have a tendency to homeschool not as a religious education but as “school at home,” after which they send her off to whore school.

                  Although I must be vague for legal reasons, girls in Leftist areas are nicest between 10 and 12 years of age, and would make good wives would it not be for their Progressive parents. You want a girl over 16 because you can separate her from her parents without going to jail.

                • Basil says:

                  Yes, modern parents would rather send their daughter to a brothel than let her find a worthy husband. If we discard the age limits set by the state, then we have two ways: either we are looking for sane parents (which will be difficult, given the level of hysteria in society on this topic) with a suitable girl, we get to know the father and only then we deal with the girl, or we find girl, seduce her, and wait for the opportunity to inform her parents without risk and take her to home.

                  The first is more secure, the second allows you to consider a larger number of candidates in the same time.

              Yes and no. It’s been my experience that highly attractive “Barbie bimbo” type women, who often have tattoos and piercings these days, are quite anti-feminist and many are openly right-wing. They are a different breed than the fat and ugly bald and pierced types.

              The bimbo types have rightly recognized feminism as a method for ugly, unattractive women to disadvantage attractive feminine women in the mating game. The body modification is a subconscious signal that they want a strong man – I will do whatever it takes to look sexy in order to attract someone who will own me.

              If you’re on the market in 21st c. America, take a tattooed and pierced bimbo over virtually any college-educated girl, full stop. It’s easier to remove the piercings and laser off the tattoos than to undo the brainwashing.

                Easier said than done. A non-college educated girl is not merely not brainwashed by college shitlibery, she is of the peasant/pleb class. A peasant girl is going to require a different type of manliness and masculinity than that of a upper middle class college girl. As a college man myself, I always felt more comfortable around women (and their friends and families) of my class, of which plenty are attractive. Not to mention the added benefit of higher IQ offspring. The brainwashing tampers down the more you take ownership and surround her with other well behaving wives and girlfriends. All acting out by women is an attempt to force ownership by a strong man backed by a strong tribe.

They aren’t all peasant class and they aren’t all stupid. I’ve known and dated several with genius IQs.

                  Have you succeeded in taking ownership of and surrounding your upper-middle-class woman with well-behaving wives and girlfriends also in the upper middle class circles? If so, I salute you.

                  With all the upper middle class people I interact with, the men are virtually always weak and the women are not well behaved. Introducing a woman into that circle is just destructive. I’ve cultivated friends outside my social class for this reason.

          Ingroup vs outgroup. Jesus also commanded his disciples to gather swords and sell their clothes if needed to obtain them. Turning the cheek to a slap is a way of ensuring harmony in the ingroup. Retaliation only after you have confirmed that the man is your enemy. Ingroup gets the forgiving, cooperative treatment focused on in the New Testemant. Outgroup gets the Old Testemant slaughter and vengeance for which it is famous.

          Keep in mind that God was always a forgiving and patient God, even in the Old Testament. Jesus came to fulfill the law, not to abolish it. The vengeance of God is just as much a part of Him as is the forgiveness Jesus espoused.

          Christendom has been struggling with this issue for two millennia, and the answer is just war theory.

          I disagree with some of my more bloodthirsty commenters, but is clear that the scale of killing required to halt a left singularity rises the closer it gets to the singularity. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do.

          The resistance in the Vendee, and the successful resistance in both of the Spanish wars, was an unarguably just war.

          Christians are required to turn the other cheek and walk the extra mile. But a Christian only has two cheeks, and is not required to walk unlimited miles.

          Christians are required to display forgiveness and generosity in victory. But that does not require Christians to allow the enemy to endlessly surrender and unsurrender. Sometimes you just have to kill them all and let God sort them out, and good Christians with great regularity did so.

          Charles the second’s approach to Havel’s Greengrocer was correct, but letting those who were not Havel’s Greengrocer depart to America turned out to be a very bad idea in the long run.

              This question is adequately dealt with by the parable of the good Samaritan, which parable gets holiness spiraled to say the opposite of what it is in fact saying.

              The parable answers the question as follows: The priest and the levite were geographically neighbors, but the man set upon by thieves was not required to love them, because they failed to act in a neighborly fashion. He is required to love the good samaritan, because the good samaritan, though not geographically a neighbor, did act in a neighborly fashion. But not required to love all those other Samaritans.

I initially considered paying for a vax “registration” while in one of these countries, and using this as evidence back home that I have already been vaxxed.

      Also about Thailand, they have a group of college types larping as antifa that are trying to overthrow their King. Which is highly illegal. This group of malcontents are getting their marching orders from US dissidents via twitter.

      Thailand should shut off twitter and faceberg in their country and expel the US embassy.

      • Atavistic Morality says:

        The Media everywhere in the American hegemony is literally an arm of the Cathedral, and of course the governments are vassals who are “persuaded” to enforce their insanity who proceed to double down on it to piously demonstrate their loyalty else they are “democratized” like the Middle East that refuses.

        Thailand is afraid that if they shut off twitter and faceberg in their country and expel the US embassy they are going to enjoy a thousand tons of explosives falling down on them and they are not willing to ride that tiger quite yet.

    Fuentes officially banned from Twitter. It was suspicious why he was allowed on Twitter, yet banned on everything else including a no-fly list but I guess this puts to bed any possibility of him being compromised. My personal belief is that young Caesar can only necessarily come from his generation.

    • Rick says:

      Maybe. The other day the FBI put together a new “white supremist” group and had them march through Philly. They got laughed out of a town on 4chan as obvious glowie operation because facebook hasn’t banned them. Maybe they’re taking the hint that only fully banned groups will work as honey pots now.

      • Pooch says:

        Yeah that was Patriot Front which is a very obvious fed entrapment honey pot. Tons of fednats were blasting the video on Twitter which looked something like a KKK march. They don’t understand us and red pills to do thing anything more sophisticated. Nick regularly makes thoughtcrimes showing a real understanding of reactionary red pills, particularly about race and black behavior, which is their most sacred issue. No one who is non-anon is going as far as him with thoughtcrime besides maybe Andrew Anglin.

        The only thing questionable about him is he still buys into the bizarre troofer theory that 9-11 was a setup with dancing Israelis and such. I’m not sure if its just because he’s too young to have not lived through it or what. Besides that he’s pretty solid on everything even calling out age of consent laws which is approaching Jim levels of basedness.

        • Rick says:

          >The only thing questionable about him is he still buys into the bizarre troofer theory that 9-11 was a setup with dancing Israelis and such.

          That’s very much a FBI meme. I’m not sold on the guy. I’ve watched a few of his videos and I still get the feeling he’s soaking up real opposition to divert it away from anger at the ruling class. But then it again it’s pretty close to impossible to tell who is what these days with any namefag. If you think he’s useful in fighting against the cathedral, good enough for me.

          The commenters on Ace of spades and other mild rightwing sites are dropping Red Pills on race these days too. The Feds have shifted away from trying to control thought to trying to prevent a revolt. There’s less policing going on those sorts of things on the right now. Whites are automatically racist now, so speaking the truths that get you labeled racist is proving less effective now.

          • Pooch says:

            Nick regularly talks about the class conflict of the deranged ruling elite using the lower races as a mercenary army against the historic white American middle class. Not impossible that the feds got to Fuentes but if so, they are allowing him a lease to unload red pills and thoughtcrimes on his audience in a way that is far more sophisticated than the morons like Spencer or any other fed shill commenter. I’m not ruling it out, but it just seems unlikely.

            He just seems to have a hang up about the Jews and Israel at times (although he doesn’t overly focus on it as a central issue) is my only knock but then again so did Anglin for the longest time and sometimes he still does. Perhaps it’s because both of them have been under attack by largely Jewish agents of the Cathedral for a long time so it’s personal in many ways for them. The JQ is a complex issue and I’ve only ever seen it explained in a way that makes sense by Jim himself.

            • Pooch says:

              Also, thinking about this more, if Fuentes was a fed asset I would think they would have used him on 1/6, which he attended, to lead his followers into the Capital to cause more violence like the fed assets in the other groups like the Oathkeepers. Instead when signs of Capital breaching occurred Fuentes fled as to make sure he was not charged for violence. Not something a fed would do.

              I think we may be giving our enemies too much credit. Glowniggers are stupid and bluepilled with a midwit IQ at most and they are pretty easy to spot.

                A few places. The gist is that Jews are not the problem, the left is the problem. Jews are selected to be high-trust within their ingroup and low-trust outside, so they do well in a society where defection and betrayal is the norm. Furthermore, they have typically been used as cutouts for European elite misbehavior. Notice that the hand of Soros is the hand of the State Department. He had to beg and scrape before Hillary Clinton, which is a clear indicator that his will is not his own. There is not truly a Jewish Problem. There is an Holiness Spiral and Elite Problem, and the corrupt and decadent elite wave the Jews as a matador does a cape; to keep the bull’s attacks away from the one sticking him with spears.

            Trigun aired on Adult Swim in the 2000s: it’s not exactly an obscure anime, and if this particular account were a paid shill and didn’t already know that, 5 seconds of googling could tell them. Maybe if they used an Angel’s Egg reference you could claim that. Either way, having seen or knowing about anime doesn’t mean a person isn’t just an idiot. At this point it’s probably the opposite. Normal people watch anime and read comic books and play DnD now; fat women love telling you they’re into Japanese cartoons. Most of that stuff is and was gay trash to begin with.

            Twitter in general is an enormous waste of time and you should probably get rid of it. It’s just news articles but now you can see every moron’s awful opinion, every moron retweeting every other moron’s awful opinion, most of it stolen and watered down. This includes Nick Fuentes, who is a retarded e-celeb: no functional difference between Fuentes and Ben Shapiro. Nothing interesting is being said.

            Even Curtis Yarvin gets substack money from watering down his opinions, and his original opinions weren’t that great in the first place. On a whim I listened to his interview with Michael Anton (also a retard) and it was bad. Every time I hear Yarvin say something like “the people at Burning Man are nobles”, or that he read John Bolton’s memoir (lmao) and John Bolton was singularly equipped to be effective in Washington, or hear him backtrack when challenged and say the exact opposite of what he just said, it becomes more obvious that Yarvin has never fucked a woman from Burning Man, has probably never understood a history book, and just likes hearing himself talk.

      The other thing that’s going on with twitter is they’ve almost completely gotten rid of all rightwing commenters. They may be moving onto taking out the larger figures now the posts celebrating such bannings won’t be ratioed. If so, Fuentes will be the first of many.

      • Wulfgar Thundercock III says:

        I think they are also keeping on the more respectable right-wingers. Robert Barnes, who is a pretty good legal analyst, was going off about Fuentes today. He is a lawyer, so he is part of the system. He is also under an immense normality bias. He thinks that laws are going to make the 2022 elections safe again and that we all need to unite across racial lines to pass populist programs. As if the gibs and the govjobs are going to be thrown away by the blacks and browns in favor of white supremacy and segregation.

        • Wulfgar Thundercock III says:

          That was not very clear, so to be specific, they will keep on the neocons and anyone supporting ineffective or self-destructive responses. Institutionalists, fednats, people with a stake in keeping the system as it is. Barnes is so hellbent on the American mythos he was talking about rebelling against Musk as a repeat of the Revolutionary War in space. He is not the kind of man to tear down a system if it is beyond saving. He thinks in terms of equality, so he is not a threat. He does not support the red pill on women, so he is no real threat to the system.

            He is a right-wing populist, but populist before right wing. He is a civil rights lawyer, which is where most of his problems come from. He actually thinks people are equal and that equality is a goal to aim towards. He is quite good at predicting how the legal system works, which is why I listen to him, but his political philosophy is too influenced by his education and profession to be useful. I take his predictions seriously, not his politics.

            People like him will be kept around, because while he advocates for fair treatment, they will be making sure they are as unfair as possible. He is not the type to retaliate against his enemies if it is against his principles, so he is guaranteed to lose. He is just the person to allow to stay on social media until the actual purges begin. All light and no heat, so that people can see how they are being destroyed, but not actually fight it effectively. He was against the declaration of martial law like Gen. Flynn wanted, because ‘muh freedumb.’

            • Pooch says:

              Like Bannon and Tucker, Barnes is part of the populist light, necessarily stopping short of thought crimes because going farther would get him banned from his revenue streams, but still giving solid pro-Trump political analysis nonetheless. His legal analysis during stop the steal was especially good (even Tucker avoided it).

              But unlike Bannon and Tucker, he suddenly punched right at Nick Fuentes after they debated on Israel (which was informative and polite). This leads me to believe Barnes is taking money from Israeli nationalists Jews (like many Republicans) and they gave him the shut it down order. Being populist lite stopping short on thoughtcrimes is fine as long as you don’t punch right at those who don’t stop short which is exactly what Con Inc so it was surprise to see Barnes do the same.

              • Wulfgar Thundercock III says:

                Barnes went on a rant about it today which is what prompted my observation, and his reasoning is equality-based nonsense. Saying mean things about the coloureds, the queers, and the wahmen (not the wahmen!)is his reason for opposing Fuentes. He fails the red pill on women, and the red pill on diversity. He thinks that the kumbaya leftism of yesteryear is possible and desirable. He spent his formative years as a civil rights lawyer standing up for the little guy because of something that happened to his father. He probably sees Fuentes as someone that he spent his life fighting against, not realizing that the people he represented in those civil rights cases will kill him, rape and kill his daughters, and abandon every principle he believes in despite what he did for them.

                It is why he will be allowed to stay on these sites. He is not an agent of change. A lawyer is too much a part of the system to be an effective revolutionary. They think in terms of convincing, persuading, and changing the direction of a system. You need a warrior or an engineer that thinks about tearing apart a system and rearranging it or rebuilding it.

                  You might be reading too much into it. Because being a political commentator is a full time job for these people they are beholden to their donors. Bannon for instance is funded by a Tawainese billionaire which is why he harps on the CCP so much on his show. Barnes’s content is on Dave Rubin’s site locals, who is a gay Israeli nationalist Jew Ben Shapiro-lite.

                  Jim’s point of Israeli nationalists being the enemy of our enemy but not necessarily our friends is salient here. It was interesting to note that neocon so called “right-wing” publications were attacking Fuentes most vigorously as a Holocaust denier, white supremacist etc when he announced he was meeting congressman Gosar.

                  Having said that of course Barnes, Bannon, Tucker, and just about every right wing personality outside of NRx (with the exception of Fuentes) are horribly normalcy biased to not understand Caesarism is the only way forward. It is generational. Every boomercon thinks returning to monarchy is unthinkable just as everyone in the time of Gracchus thought returning to monarchy was unthinkable.

        You know how many times I’ve been told this or that was impossible and I still did it and found success? When I started my first own business at 19 it was incredibly impossible, I was incredibly too young and I was going to incredibly fail, I’m still hearing it. This market is too saturated, this economy is too difficult, you’re working too hard, you’re young you should be enjoying your life. You can’t, you aren’t, you won’t. Once I hit my 50s perhaps they’ll start to tell me that I’m just too old instead of too young. I suspect any man who has ever had any amount of reasonable success has been told innumerable times that he wasn’t capable, he would fail and it was impossible. For the small people, the world is always incredibly complicated and impossible, and the evil people, they’ll always try to trip you up a little bit more.

        Having problems dealing with “social pressures and signals” is called being a faggot and a lesser man. In the times of WWII it wasn’t weird for people to have completely and radically different ideas about many things but that didn’t stop them from being friends and dealing with each other. Thomas Moore and Thomas Cromwell were somehow friends, strange as it may sound considering the situation. Men of quality don’t shrink away from disagreement or hold it against others as if it was personal, each man is his own world and has his own interests, his own personality and his own beliefs.

It still refers to people whom a psychiatrist would actually diagnose as autistic, many of whom our side finds more likeable and reasonable than the average man, but it also includes anyone comparatively immune to social pressures, along with a slightly affectionate implication of stilted social skills, though I don’t even think everyone assumes all 4chan “autists” are socially retarded.

Yes, some crypto tycoons are anarchist privacy nuts and so vulnerable to left libertarianism and reluctant to put their money out there, I assume, but seems hardly any serious money goes toward building e.g. whatever the opposite of the WEF, Open Society Foundation, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, etc. are, and of course crypto is not the only way conservatives get rich.

    • suones says:

      Vaishya support is downstream of power. If you have a right-wing Clinton Family, you will have right wing Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos (because they themselves will be “right wing”). The Left has memetic superiority because it has captured Brahmin status-giving institutions. Which is because the Left has military superiority because it is backed by the US Army carriers and nukes, has been for more than a century. When you have a competing right wing Army, then we can see the change. It happened for a brief while where US Patriots formed a new grey Army (that lacked a real Will to Power anyway), but zilch apart from that. President Biden has specifically hammered this point: to counter Leftism you need F15s (at least) and nukes.

        Don’t spout lost cause about the Confederacy being overly based or anything.

        The Confederacy wanted to bring in more niggers, that is why they chimped out. Furthermore the Confederacy was also a Republic… Republic’s are not in the long term based.

        Any large Republic (beyond the size of say Switzerland) is going to maybe have some generations of good governance but eventually parasites and traitors are going to game the system. The Union was not overtly pozzed until Woodrow Wilson but because its a Republic and Republics suck it would have gotten there…

        Monarchy is the only system capable of sane government in a long term, and any Republic that rises to world power status is going to eventually become the great satan before either collapsing or as in the case of Rome becoming more like a monarchy.

          “The Confederacy wanted to bring in more niggers” Bringing in foreign labor isn’t necessarily a bad thing ; it’s when you allow said labor to procreate and establish cultural footholds that you get problems.

        The CSA were more based than the USA, even though both were on the road to poz.

        Logic that an anti-Left movement has to be “perfect” or else it is bad, bad, terribad is retarded and a rightward version of Holiness spiralling. One step right is better than two left, and to reverse the Leftist ratchet by even one peg is to break it. The Confederacy halted Leftism in its tracks until Woodrow Wilson got the ball rolling again, reaching peak poz only in 1964. Not bad for a “failed” revolution.

        Confederates were Patriots.
        Hitler did nothing wrong.
        Nixon was entrapped.
        Trump was a great President.

        I will only brook discussion of the above if Leftists first agree to discuss the evildoings of Lenin, Wilson, Kennedy and LBJ. Until then they can fuck off.

        The USA revolution was an evil Leftist revolution, not because they overthrew King George (happens all the time), but because they failed to establish a dynasty or State Religion afterwards — leaving the door open to capture by Harvard, which may have been the intention of some revolutionaries from the beginning, but probably not all.

        • Pooch says:

          It is interesting to note that Anglicanism (as opposed to Puritanism) was strongest in the southern colonies which seems to be the reason why the South was and is more based than the north even today.

        • The Cominator says:

          What halted the poz in its tracks until Wilson is during the “gilded age” the radical leftists lost the power struggle to the free soilers (who were not that leftist on any other issue) and lost BADLY. It had nothing to do with the confederacy in fact abolishing slavery completely helped it (i guess you could say its good they chimped out and lost and hence paved the way for that).

          One thing that gave progs an opening was that silver was demonetized for corrupt reasons and this caused a lot of economic problems.

          • Kunning Drueger says:

            I think it is fair to ask that you provide evidence that the CSA wanted more new slaves. They definitely wanted to keep their slaves. They definitely were massively republicish and hated the idea of monarchy, failings both. But I’m struggling to find sources for CSA argument for more slaves. Contrary to Whig history, USA was not the main destination of African slave trade. That would be the Caribbean, South America, and points East. Last time I looked, more or less 4 percent of black slaves ended up in the USA. And the Cuban fiasco blunted mass introduction of black Africans significantly.

            • Pooch says:

              The CSA would have ended slavery within a decade. Their economy was falling way behind that of the industrializing north which no longer needed slaves anyway.

              The CSA’s problem with Lincoln was that he made clear he would not abide any expansion of slavery into the territories and was going to ignore the Dred Scott decision.

            Here’s what we do know:
            Vets with actual combat experience either continue on as contractors, go into police, go into fedgov, or go elsewhere. A very, very small percentage go into digital media, startups, or some other 21st century type “me” business.

            The vast majority of vets from GWoT have no combat experience, rudimentary combat training, and an embarrassingly high percentage of suicide, addiction, and petty crime.

            All three breeds of vet (old timers from Gulf I etc, combat vers from GWoT, and poge vets from GWoT) watched the election get stolen, after a year of literal communists, gangs, and urban terrorists carried out an assault campaign across the country, and did absolutely nothing.

            This is anecdotal, and I’m not going to be specific, but I have personally interacted with dozens of actual operators and actual combat vets. They are not paying attention to politics, they are collecting paychecks.

            The military is pozzed. Full stop. The battle for the hearts and minds of the military is over. Anyone who says otherwise and fails to produce evidence is probably in denial.

But this is not a deeply held belief and my money says they’d flock to a right wing banner if they saw one that wasn’t being waved by some geriatric pseudo-conservative.

                  Classic priestly attack from Leftism 1.0. First they convince based warriors to be “secular” and “non-political.” This is a technique to remove the influence of based priests and their based State Religion. The intention is to remove Deus from their hearts, and Caesar from their banner. Once achieved, said warriors become easy prey for Moloch and tranner surgery.

                  Any “secular” priest or “non-political” warrior is a potential golem of Moloch. He can be converted back, but not without Deus in the Temple and Caesar on the throne.

          What happens if the less insane middle decides that it has had enough but is still too squeamish to resort to open violence and declares a general strike?
          Or more likely a targeted sort of strike, as in pays truckers to not deliver to blue areas. Seems to me that’d be a way to force either a massive escalation or a capitulation. What percentage I wonder of truckers not delivering would it take to make the cities no longer livable?

          • Pooch says:

            Then they get fired (and possibly arrested) and replaced with immigrants and blacks for half the price. Peasant revolts never work.

            • Jehu says:

              Doubt you could easily replace a million truckers, at least not before your civilization collapsed. That kind of strike isn’t a classic peasant revolt, it is a direct assault on Cathedral logistics. My question is, how much would it cost to pay enough to strike.
              I think you are correct that the Cathedral would escalate to open violence, but that’s more a feature than a bug.

              • Pooch says:

                The elite of the dieing Roman Republic always escalated with open violence all the way until Caesar.

                • Jehu says:

                  Want a Caesar from what you’ve got? Getting the other side to escalate to open violence is probably the only way you get there from here. An awful lot of people would support a general strike or the like that wouldn’t support anything ‘violent’, even though such a strike observably will always draw a violent response.
                  Thing is, a ‘nonlinearity’ like this is absolutely necessary when your opponent controls all the major institutions.

                • Pooch says:

                  Forcing the Cathedral to violence, and Jan. 6th showed, is not going to force Caesar to materialize out of thin air. Great man theory follows that great men do not come around that often. Young Caesar may only be in his teens or early 20s right now (as Yarvin predicts and I agree with), in which case we need to do our best to not get genocided before he arrives.

                • Jehu says:

                  January 6th was a joke. Crippling the logistics of pretty much every major city would not be. I don’t think that America can be salvaged intact. I believe that the root problem of Trump’s failure was that he was desperately trying to salvage America intact, when such is impossible unless your foes capitulate. And because they’re holiness spiralers, they won’t. Given the current rate of holiness acceleration, I predict many will wish they’d burned it all down, smashed the power grid and the just in time system.
                  The ‘peasants’ may not be able to take or hold power, but they can most assuredly burn it all down.

                • jim says:

                  The ‘peasants’ cannot rule. Should they succeed in burning it all down, who then is going to rule?

                  If you have in mind anarcho capitalism, that requires an armed and dangerous elite even more virtuous than a Republic requires, and holding to a shared faith. If you have in mind anarcho socialism, been tried.

                • Jehu says:

                  Someone other than the Cathedral, because they’ll pretty much all be dead. It’ll probably suck, but not as bad as what the Cathedral has behind door number 1. When I say suck, I mean it’ll likely kill 50% or more of the population. The US @2021 has an exceptionally brittle logistics system. That’s where it differs from Russia last century.

                • Pooch says:

                  Would take elite coordination to organize a rebellion of that scale. And if an elite (like Trump) can think big enough to organize a million Trucker strike across the nation he can think big enough to organize a million man militia to take DC, something Trump failed to do (as Jim stated would be necessary to win the election).

                • Jehu says:

                  Crippling the logistics system of the US wouldn’t take much. Doing it and making the Cathedral look bad when they fight it would probably take something like the general strike I mentioned—or in this case, the general logistics strike.
                  But as I mentioned before, a LOT of people would support or even participate in such a strike that wouldn’t dream of marching with arms on DC, even though that strategy predictably leads to war. Kind of like a lot of people would support an oil embargo that wouldn’t support a war, even though such an embargo generally leads to war in 6 months or less.
                  The logistics strike though has the advantage that it nullifies the strength of the US military more or less from the get go.

                • Pooch says:

                  It is an interesting thought experiment. However, history shows us that without elite coordination, peasant revolts tend to look more like the Whiskey Rebellion or Bonus Army, inconvenience that is eventually put down with overwhelming violence by regime forces.

                  Recruiting a million truckers to not deliver food to the cities requires the same if not more organization than Jan 6th would need. Serious people didn’t show up, nor would they. Everyone apparently has better things to do.

                  If Trump decided to stay in office regardless of the election results and drop term limits, it would require people who have actual power to go along with it. Which means the threat of force if not actual force. Did anyone see this happen? Because I think what happened is that proles got shot by the capitol police, and then the prole military stood by (unarmed) to dissuade other proles to try it again, and then Trump waved goodbye and left.

                  If I discipline my wife by smacking her, it isn’t Joe Biden or a congresswoman who comes to my door to arrest me, it’s the local prole cop, who subscribes to the Ben Shapiro podcast and loves the Constitution. If you can’t convince a prole cop to not arrest you for smacking your wife, you won’t convince a million truckers to stop coming to work. And none of you can tell a cop or a trucker what to do anymore than you can tell a congresswoman what to do. Or anymore than electing Trump and expecting him to tell the government what to do.

                • Jehu says:

                  Some notes. Truckers are actually only about 2% unionized, with only about 75k Teamsters (out of about 3.5M truckers in the US). They’re also a seriously Trump demographic. Truckers USED to be a union demographic, at one point with like 2M truckers in the teamsters, but that was in the days where Teamsters was a bit more of a sane variety of leftist. 1960s union types would seem positively reactionary today. By comparison, about 6% is the unionized rate in the US as a whole.

                  The government’s first response will of course be to call in the National Guard, who will stand and watch the cities burn around them, just as they stood and watched the murder of Mohammad Anwar, because none of them want to be the next Derek Chauvin.

                  Even if truckers are a “seriously Trump demographic” your argument is unpersuasive. When air traffic controllers did a general strike in 1981, Reagan simply just fired them all. That’s over 10,000 key civil service fired, replaced, and banned from future government employment, and air travel was a lot less dense back then so the impact was relatively massive. If they can find replacements for something like that, which requires years of detailed and very expensive education and live training, they can find replacements for someone to drive a fucking truck.

                  Same goes for a cop strike. If pigs started not showing up to work, they would replace the 90 IQ white police force with 80 IQ niggers, which might actually be an improvement, because an incompetent and undisciplined domestic police would be better for us than a competent and disciplined one.

                  In any case, the police are unscrupulous mercenaries who would gladly throw you in jail for “domestic violence”, throw each other in jail for “domestic violence” (cops have a hilariously outsized DV arrest rate compared to the general pop), and soon they will be throwing you and their own grandmothers in jail for saying the word nigger or on suspicion of having once said the word nigger. They are generally stupid people incapable of independent thought, and they’re selected to be that way. In order to get things done you need to be able to tell the men with guns what to do, and if Trump couldn’t do it, which was foreseeable and likely, then there isn’t a political solution. I don’t see a solution at all right now except moving. I heard Switzerland is nice this time of year.

            When Burke saw that his leftist attack on the East India Company was coming back to bite him, as those even holier than himself sought to destroy him as he had destroyed others, he immediately grasped for throne and altar conservatism to protect himself. Nothing less will protect us.

            Charles the Second gave the East India Company the legitimate authority to make war and peace. Well, if you make war and win, and then impose peace, the peace you impose is going to look very like you ruling. And so the East India Company gradually transitioned from being mobile bandits to stationary bandits, without anyone quite noticing the transition.

            And then members of the ruling class in Britain coveted what the East India company had obtained by the sword, and wanted to take it away from them. So Burke prosecuted, and made propaganda offensive, against them ruling. Whereupon people in England holier than himself said “Well, if rule by officials of the East India Company in India is illegal and immoral, how about your rule here?” Whereupon Burke suddenly embraced the Throne he had been undermining, and the Altar he had been desecrating.

            Nothing less can could protect him from collective holy organized violence, and nothing less can protect us from collective holy organized violence.

              At what point do you start to recognize the failures of the King and the legitimate resistance by an aristocratic sector of society? A King isn’t always justified or right, and if he is incompetent he should be deposed.

They didn’t win the war, either, just as Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq didn’t beat the US. In all these cases, Congress or Parliament made certain that victory for the dominant power was impossible.

                • Atavistic Morality says:

                  Sam Adams risking imprisonment because he refused to collect the taxes of people starving or having difficulty making ends meet is not a lie. John Hancock risking imprisonment because taxes and government regulation was strangling his livelihood is not a lie. When the tax collector and the merchant agree like this, government has become a tyrannic institution that is literally starving people. Even a seemingly Whig lawyer like John Adams originally supported the King, it’s just that the King made himself unbearable. How many of the original in the Continental Congress actually wanted peace and to have a treaty with the King? The spirit of this people lived on in the Confederacy, this people were genuine in their interest of prosper and adequate ruling.

                  BLM are niggers shilling for nigger interests and demanding niggers are worshipped and financed by whites, Antifa are whites defecting on other whites for short term profit. There is no comparison here.

                  John Hancock on the other hand was very much right that strict enforcement of the Navigation Acts and the Coinage Acts however would cause a kind of catastrophic deflation in the colonies and potentially reduce the living standards over time to that of Ireland. The issue was not so much taxes as monetary flow.

  43. Aryaman says:

    I think you can less precariously discuss what parts of Hinduism are certainly not demon infested, than what parts are. For example, the religious component of major sacraments and rites like weddings and funerals likely are as they were at the time India last exported Damascus steel, when it was still a functioning civilization with a healthy religion. Every lawful wedding still involves the consummation of a contract between the bride’s father and the groom, and the bride makes vows of obedience, fidelity, service, and children.

    Suffice to say, Ramayana is also not demon infested, and it is from Ramayana the semiformal prescription of the ideal man, wife, and citizen flows. In fact to some degree a prescription of capitalism too, in that the duty to judiciously steward property and acquire wealth are praised.

    But problem is there is a conspicuous lack of Rama worship and the conspicuous proliferation of and obsession with ritual practices such as letting milk boil over the stove when you move into a new home, not to mention the proliferation of not even metaphorical but quite literal demon worshipping creeds which are treated as if mainstream and not heretical.

    • suones says:

      …there is a conspicuous lack of Rama worship and the conspicuous proliferation of and obsession with ritual practices…

      This is the Brahminical holiness spiralling I warned DharmicReality about. It is extremely similar to another Old Belief: Judaism, where the dietary rituals are accorded more importance than the Ten Commandments[1]. It is indicative of insufficient culling of the Brahminical flock. The time for a Shankaracharya is long overdue.

      [1] Ron Unz satirises this by saying that the average Talmudic Jew is more concerned with whether hands are to be washed clockwise or counterclockwise before prayer rather than whether he is praying to God or Satan.

      • Rituals/practice of daily worship which had come down from father to son through the ages *are* important, otherwise you get Prog entryism in the form of “I’m spiritual but not religious” nonsense. Also it’s not just rituals that are important for their own sake, but the fact that Hinduism’s rituals have been sidelined has also led to tearing down of many Chesterton’s fences by the Hindu reformist elite, because without a daily practice of your religion you lose touch with tradition.

        Hindu elite degeneration is in one way related to their non-involvement in religious activity.

        In fact, this is what has led to the degeneration of the Hindu culture as a whole. Many rituals may make no sense, but the average Hindu requires some level of ritual worship to avoid this problem. Hindu festivals need to be celebrated traditionally and with some level of pomp.

      • In fact, I find the opposite to be true, i.e. imposing a certain set of rituals/worship and knowledge on how to perform those rituals actually cuts down holiness spiralling on the philosophical parts of the religion which is most important.

        Becoming a priest should involve a rigorous daily discipline.

        The higher the position of the priest, the more rigorous and difficult the performance of the ritual.

        If somebody who cannot perform rituals (which take time and effort) sincerely, regularly and with devotion is prevented from holiness spiralling, you get a lot less priests to spiral their holiness.

        This can be enforced by a Dharmic King.

        Hinduism has failed to enforce this and today everyone is a priest without actually performing his duties. Using this strategy Elite Prog Hindus have successfully sabotaged Hinduism by claiming to be Hindus when they are not.

          Elaboration of rituals is in practice a major failure mode of religions.

          You cannot define a set mode, because there is always some detail that someone is going to make a big deal out of. No matter how set it is, he is going to make it more set in more detail. It is always possible to elaborate a ritual under the pretext of getting specific about what was left vague.

          On the one hand, you don’t want people rolling their own rituals. Every ritual of every church of the same religion should be completely familiar and expected by someone who comes in from another Church, same as every McDonalds has the same menu. On the other hand, getting fussed about the details of ritual is theomancy.

          • Within Hinduism, this problem is addressed by “forking”. The base code remains the same, but almost every practising Hindu household has its own variation on the same base rituals and every Hindu temple has subtly different rituals with no centralized control.

            So long as the base code is recognized as Hinduism, I see no problem with forks. Some forks are obviously doomed to failure of course, while others take off in a big way.

            The real problem arises when a disagreement happens *within* a household and that should be handled by the Head Patriarch. Similarly within a temple or a religious institution, the Chief Priest’s word should be final on all ritualistic matters. Anybody disagreeing can leave and fork (if they can).

            It might not seem so to an outsider, but every Hindu temple has its own rituals and own routine with the base code remaining common between most Hindu temples.

            So long as the base code is acknowledged as common, I see no problem if people disagree on the details of rituals (with forking as a solution and not hostile takeover).

          This is the crux of the matter. Ritualisation is a priestly endeavour. As such it is always vulnerable to holiness spiralling. A Dharmic King blesses one set of rituals as Divine and the others as heretic. If the King has sufficient power, all is well.

          In every household, the Family Patriarch is the head priest. There is no Dharma bigger than honouring one’s Father, and obeying Him[1]. Domestic rituals should be the preserve of the Family Patriarch. Ask any learned Brahmin about rituals, and he will readily admit that after performing the minimum Vedic rituals, additional ceremonies may be conducted by request of the “Yajaman,” such ceremonies being called “Lokachar” and having as much Dharmic validity for the Family as the Vedic rituals. I viewed this as excellent social technology in that the officiating priest, the Head Brahmin, defers to the Family Patriarch, in every religious ceremony. This increases the status of the Patriarch within his household, and this is what the Brahmin is actually paid dakshina for.

          Holiness spiralling stupidity would be not stepping out in an eclipse when the Armies of Baphomet are at the doorstep, or failing to interrupt one’s sandhya when dacoits attack the house.

          [1] Not including extreme outliers like pederasts.

          • I don’t think we disagree on the holiness spiralling part, but I see no evidence that this is a serious problem, because every household and every temple has its own variant on the same base Hindu worship. So long as the base is acknowledged, I see no problem with variants on the same rituals and it is up to the Chief Patriarch of the household to impose his will on ritualistic disputes, as it is for the Chief Priest of the temple to impose his when the same happens in temples/religious institutions.

            The big problem with Hinduism today is actually a lack of practise of Hinduism. The daily practise of Hindu rituals has become low status. Lazy philosophizing (allowing for cheap holiness spiralling) has become high status.

            This has allowed Progs with Hindu names to advise Hindus that Hinduism, rightly understood is Progressivism, without having to prove that they are actually Hindus. Shill tests and demon worship tests are fine for online fora, but in the real world, we need stringent tests that actually prove whether somebody is a genuine practising Hindu or not before they are allowed to preach to Hindus on what Hinduism actually is.

              Every fight between Vaishnava and Shaiva is Adharma. Every imposition of one’s own dietary laws on others is Adharma. Every inter-caste struggle is Adharma. Every submission to foreign powers in hope of advantage against local rivals is Adharma.

              Every single act of Adharma above ultimately destroys the soul. To take salient examples: why didn’t Sri Maharaj Prithviraj Chauhan and Sri Maharaj Jaichandra fight Ghori together? Why did half the Rajputs fight for Babar against Rana Sanga?

              Re: shill tests.

              I’ve found that “Jai Shree Ram!” as a common greeting is surprisingly effective in real life. You should try it. Even people who resist saying it feel a tug at their hearts. Those are the ones who can be saved. Stringent tests will necessarily have to be tailored to the functional capacity of the individual. A basic test is honouring one’s Father and family gods.

    Reality contains that which exists. In order for God to have causal powers, he must have existence rather than nonexistence. If anything that God creates is real then it necessarily participates in the same ontology or mereologic relation as God. Nothing therefore can be absolutely separate from God as both share the same ontic medium. The only logical possibility for God is either a panentheistic di-polar monism or a local deity. In either case, the traditional notion of God within the Hebrew bible is either secondary to the Absolute or is not metaphysically distinct from the corporeal continuum.
