Where we are now

A survey of the talking heads talking about the fall of Kabul confirms that our major military objective in Afghanistan was to teach nine year old girls to put a condom on a banana.

I am happy about the fall of Kabul, because Afghanistan is the graveyard of empires. It is where empires go to die, but don’t make the mistake of thinking that the enemy of your enemy is your friend.

We face two live faiths that hate us and want us to die, progressivism and Islam. The Taliban hates you and wants you to die almost as much as our government does. In this case, the enemy of your enemy is definitely not your friend.

Then there is Xi thought, the Chinese state religion. It is walking dead, like the faith of the Soviet Union after Stalin, a zombie, irreparably rotting and falling apart. Xi is trying to revive it with an infusion of Marxism, and is currently allied with progressives in America against Americans, while at war with their muppets and sock puppets closer to his borders, taking advantage of disunity and corruption within the American elite. At the moment, the left that is in his pocket is in the saddle within America, and is comfortable letting the American empire fall back. But the left that is not in his pocket is getting steamed about the collapse of empire.

I hope that Xi will turn right to Confucianism. Trying to revive Marxism as the Chinese State Religion is not going well for him. It’s dead, Jim.

In Russia, protected by Putin’s nukes, Christianity is returning from the dead. It is good at returning from the dead. But while no longer dead, is not altogether alive yet. Still has merely the aliveness of a mustard seed.

Holy war is coming, and you need to take a gun to a gunfight, and a faith to a holy war. Our best prospect for winning is the Christianity that is barely beginning to show tiny shoots of green in Russia.

Old Type Roman Catholicism is alive, and I wish it well, but the Pope is a heretic, an apostate, and a pagan, and the Vatican is in the pocket of the lavender mafia. This is a fatal weakness for a supranational centralized faith. It is a fatal weakness of supranationalism, universalism, and centralization. Always rots from the head down.

Worse, even Old Type Roman Catholicism is fatally blue pilled, and has been ever since it capitulated to the Troubadours. We need a state religion that is compatible with elite fertility, or else whites will disappear and the remnants will be wiggers.

Orthodoxy has the great advantage of being a coalition of national faiths.

When the Tsar conquered some place X that was not orthodox, he would install a King of X, and would send a Russian Orthodox priest from Russia to X to run their state religion, who would give a quick touch up spray paint job on the existing state religion of X to make it orthodox, declare himself X orthodox instead of Russian Orthodox, and fiercely defend the national prerogatives of the distinctive and significantly different national X Orthodox Church (The touch up job was seldom very thorough). The King of X installed by the Tsar would take orders from the Tsar, and the Russian priest installed the Tsar would take orders from that King, rather than directly from the Russian Orthodox Church in Moscow, but Russian Orthodoxy and X orthodoxy would remain in communion.

We have to replace our existing universalist state religion of progressivism and woke with a national and nationalist state religion, and Orthodoxy fits the bill better than old type Roman Catholicism, which is fatally and inherently blue pilled and fatally supranational.

Empires go to Afghanistan to die. They die not because Afghanistan is a tough nut to crack. It is easy to conquer Afghanistan. It is not very hard to rule Afghanistan. Imposing your State religion on it, is, however considerably harder, because you have to intrude the state into every nook and cranny, which is, in Afghanistan, extremely difficult. Successful governments in Afghanistan kept order and safety on Afghanistan’s primary asset (the crossroads of central Asia) and let the rest slide, relying on the roads across Afghanistan as their primary, and often their only, source of revenue, and political and economic power. Unsuccessful empires in Afghanistan went there to impose their universal state religion, and forgot about the roads linking central Asia. In our case, forgot about the roads, pipelines, internet, and electricity grid linking central Asia.

Defeat in Afghanistan was foreshadowed by the fact that the Afghan internet is an outlying branch of the American internet. A competent empire would have made it the central node of the central Asian internet so that it could spy on the network traffic. If the war had been run competently, everyone along the roads linking central Asia would find themselves with good internet connections, and everyone near the roads would find a good internet connection on their cell phones, with a short ping time to all of central Asia.

Keeping the roads open, orderly, and safe is the sort of thing that empires are good at and can easily do. Getting nine year old girls woke is pushing muck uphill, and empires go to Afghanistan to die because they are pushing muck uphill.

  1. Pseudo-Klausius says:

    In the solid Orthodox churches, marriages are still quasi-arranged, and if the father is absent or too much of a pussy to do the arranging, then the parish priest (almost always himself a married man with children) will take on the role of father. So indeed, I would say purity in both young men and women can be practical in the Orthodox Church. However, unfortunately, even the Orthodox have a real problem with over-educating their daughters and delaying marriage. Here’s a relatively liberal priest’s wife commenting on the problem:

    Its clear to me that the Democrats and the oligarchy and their mockingbird media now want Biden out in favor of Harris sooner rather than later.

    We should not want this… Harris is lucid enough that she can actually be blamed personally for awful decisions. Biden is clearly so far gone that normies are going to blame not a senile old man but the regime behind him. We need to try to keep Biden in as long as possible.

    Most of us have moved to red states… I’ll be calling Skeletor and gay fag RINO Rubio’s office to tell them to vote no on impeachment for Biden himself (and why I oppose it as a right winger) should it come up for all the good it will do…

    • Pooch says:

      The President is a figurehead and has no power. Replacing Harris with Biden isn’t going to mean much pragmatically speaking. What it represents though, is the beginning stages of the white governing elite being replaced by black sheboons which I welcome. An elite of DMV ladies is not going to need much to eventually defeat.

        Biden is an OBVIOUS figurehead who can’t make decisions… that is what is great about him. When he fucks up the whole Cathedral regime looks bad.

        • Wulfgar Thundercock III says:

          Yes, the discussions I am having are that the government is responsible for all this mess, not Biden. Only one guy is even trying to blame Biden and he is getting a lot of pushback. Everyone else looks at it as the government as a while fucking up. Plus, the longer that McConnell et al ignore Biden’s obvious cognitive collapse, the more they look complicit. The whole system is losing credibility.

                  I think you’ve made a pretty good case for Biden staying in office, but I also think that Harris is actually, objectively incompetent. So while the dynamic may change, given that Shaniqua always gets a free pass, it will not stabilize the image of the Cathedral as competent manager. I know we all have different positions on means, ends, and responses, but I think we can all agree that so long as the Mind and the Voice keep screwing the pooch (sorry Pooch), we will keep finding more and more willing ears, hearts, and minds. I for one welcome Prezzidant Shaniqua, and I hope she pushes the Stunning and Brave to 11.

                • Pooch says:

                  Exactly. Accelerate. When the stabilizing brake of the Republicans and “moderate” Democrats come off, we will really see people start waking up.

                  No we will not, and it does not matter anyway.

                  A majority of Republicans have woken up, in that they realize that elections are rigged, and only enemy entryists in the Republican party can ever be elected.

                  Real waking up consists of despairing for the restoration of the Republic and looking for Caesar.

                • jim says:

                  Acceleration is not a good idea. There is no relationship between how bad a holiness spiral gets and how soon it is fixed, and it can easily go all the way to everyone tortures everyone else to death for insufficient holiness, leaving very few survivors.

                • Pooch says:

                  Agreed and I am still not seeing that as long as we still have what appears as an opposition party, even as fake and performative as it is.

                  Requires white competence to torture everyone to death for insufficient holiness. Our holiness spiral is rapidly turning into the Africanization of the regime. The South African government is not scaring the Afrikaners that have chosen to stay. They can barely feed their own soldiers. I welcome that here in America.

                • The Cominator says:

                  We don’t want further acceleration we want elite disunity and further appearance of ridiculous weakness and incompetence for the government as a whole. The longer Biden stays in office the better.

                • Kunning Drueger says:

                  White competence is not a prerequisite for a Cambodian Memeplex. It may even impede it. Regardless, as cucked as Republicans™ are, there are a ton of fence-sitters actively ignoring the obvious. As Cathedral wallows left and smashes right, there fence top becomes ever more narrow. To cry out in desperation for Restoration, they need to be certain of inevitable desolation. While you may be correct, Jim, in the lack of correlation in speed of spiral and emergence of solution, I can’t see how you’re sure. There are so many people who just want to be left alone. If they are forced to confront the inevitable reality that they won’t be, isn’t it better if that it happens dramatically, so they don’t have time to instantiate a new normal kind of acceptance? Like, if USG had gone full bore Coronatarianism rapidly, instead of gradually, is it reasonable to believe there would have been a lot more resistance?

                  None the less, I think Harris is actually far more incompetent than Biden. She does not have the deep well of DNC operatives willing to carry water like Biden does. The anecdotal evidence from campaign staff is that she is emotional, vicious, shortsighted, and obstinate. If you listen to her speak, she is as gaff prone as Biden, maybe more so. I think her ascendance would continue to transmit holistic incompetence, as well as increase racial tension.

                  All of this sucks. I’m not an accelerationist. But I do like it when the enemy is tireless in sending balls at its own goal. I think our best chance of avoiding Pol Pot 2: Mulattess Bugaloo is for an increase in naked incompetence.

                • The Cominator says:

                  Neither are competent but Harris is plausibly actually making decisions, Biden is not.

                • Kunning Drueger says:

                  No, I get your point. I just disagree. But as I said before, you make a good case. I just think Harris will continue the process.

      • Kunning Drueger says:

        The time for political theater has passed, but the time for political solutions is rapidly approaching. Political power comes from the end of a gun, which is to say it comes from force. Organized force trumps disorganized force in the long run. Organization requires coordination between high trust individuals. High trust relationships are fostered through repeated mundane interactions. Eating dinner, getting drinks, chopping wood, discussing topics and texts.

        In this regard, I’m starting a book club in my area. I plan on developing trusting relationships with guys and gradually exploring Jimian Christianity as a framework for interaction, discernment, and decision making. Unavoidably, this begins as an act of political organization, but my goal is to advocate passivism, considered withdrawal, and hyper-focus on the Character of Man. I’d greatly appreciate any advice, text recommendations, or guidance people might offer.

        • Guy says:

          I recommend you are extremely selective with who can join. Kick anyone out who wants to do more than go to the range here and there as far as guns go. The government very much does not want you to have a book club, they will go to crazy lengths to destroy your book club unless it has drag queen story hour as a central feature. They don’t want any networks at all, if you are successful, and don’t go down the wrong paths, your group will likely be taken over by entryists anyway and anything bad they do put on you as much as possible if you’re still involved.

          The best networks are families, if you don’t have one make one, recruiting people to create a community is dangerous and usually going to attract feds and homos anyway.

  4. Aidan says:

    I have a question for jim, though others feel free to contribute. I’m finally biting the bullet and learning to code. Shockingly, I actually enjoy it and have a decent natural talent. (I really see how it appeals to nerds. For a certain subsection of low-status young men, writing a script that actually does something is probably the first time in their lives that their will-to-power had an actual material effect on the world. Which is sad, but no wonder some spend their lives behind a keyboard.)

    Since I’m kind of a blank slate right now with no preconceived notions or experience, and could go into anything, I’d like to know which area of specialization jim thinks would contribute most effectively and materially to, y’know, Restoration. I need to secure the bag first and foremost, but I also want to help.

    • Fëanor says:

      Not Jim, but know a thing or two about programming. Probably the biggest material contribution programming could make to restoration is via cryptocurrency and any other decentralization tech that people can think of. On the other hand, this assumes existing infrastructure will survive what’s coming, something I’ve always been sceptical of. I suggest focusing on getting the bag first, then storing your bag somewhere very thoroughly offline.

      I also have some more general opinions on programming education, which mostly boil down to the fact that Western science has been in decline since 1972 and this doesn’t entirely exclude programming. A lot of software exists now that didn’t exist then, but the software that did exist then has mostly been replaced by things that are worse. Nearly all advances in languages and tooling have been intended to bring programming to a broader but stupider audience. This doesn’t necessarily make them useless, but its effects have been predictable. If you can understand C, you can understand anything; not so the other way around.

      Watch this, if you get the chance: https://youtu.be/ZSRHeXYDLko. Not really intended for programming novices, but it isn’t really technical, and the speaker is someone who seems to be gradually inching closer to being on our side.

      • Fëanor says:

        Also, learn peripheral skills. How to use a command-line shell, source control, at least one terminal-based editor, etc. I was shocked by the number of times I had to teach this sort of thing at a remedial level to people who were a few courses away from having a degree in computer science, just to be able to collaborate with them on projects at all.

        • Aidan says:

          Learning the Linux shell and vim was literally the first thing I did lol. I can’t imagine doing it the other way around.

          • Fëanor says:

            You would be surprised—most university CS students, at least those with no prior experience before going to school, seem to learn exclusively using IDEs on Windows, which renders them completely incompetent at real-world tasks even if they technically know the languages quite well.

          • Kunning Drueger says:

            Smart move, A. There’s a guy on YouTube called Mental Outlaw. His catalog is good for introductions into topics. Let’s talk more about it soon, but check out overthewire.org . Not my up of tea, but I hear it can be rewarding…

      • jim says:

        > Also, learn peripheral skills.

        Yes, everyone who programs should be able to bring up a server and so forth, or else he is dependent on infrastructure someone else provides – albeit sysadmin is a bottomless pit, and becoming an expert in it locks you into our existing massively penetrated infrastructure. Before you do anything on a cloud server, make sure it goes smoothly on a local vm image of that server that is running within reach of your hands.

        C is the foundation of everything, but these days the answer is rust, albeit rust is likely to be hard to understand if you do not understand C, and it is hard to get rust jobs, also hard to get rust programmers.’

        You need a foundational language, such as C or rust, and a scripting language such as javascript.

        C is the foundation of everything, but most of the C that matters is running on servers in the cloud executing scripts.

        • notglowing says:

          I agree with Jim on Rust. It is one of the greatest advancements in programming languages of the past two decades. It’s one of my favourite languages now.

          I don’t recommend it to non-programmers. It’s difficult to understand rust without understand the problems it solves, and understanding the problems it solves when it’s your first language is impossible since you never even encountered those problems, and everything seems very abstract, every error very arbitrary and frustrating.

          Personally I found learning it to be a great experience.
          But I would still recommend python as a beginner language. C is not practically useful for many applications you’d actually want to build today.
          Python is well designed for what it is meant to be, although I no longer like dynamically typed languages (but there is a static typing framework)
          Typescript is also useful.

          For Android apps, Kotlin.
          My overall recommendation is to start with a project and learn what you need to learn to complete it, not the other way around.

          • A2 says:

            I would add that you will need to learn to use an editor and the ‘shell’ on your system so you can edit and run your programs. Later you will realize you need to learn more, of course.

            I would also recommend that you find a small program that does something interesting (with source code available) and modify the source code to do other interesting things. It’s usually easier to start fiddling with something that works instead of a blank page.

            • Chad says:

              For the peripheral skills, check out a guy on YouTube called Luke Smith. I think he is quite big now.

              (He is based and redpilled, and often talks about Moldbug, orthodoxy, Latin, etc. in his livestreams. I am confident some of his followers hang around here too. He also did a podcast way back in the day with some social matter people about tech and the restoration IIRC. Its been taken down when the rest of SM went down, but I have a copy if anyone is desperate to listen.)

              He is not a full on programmer but has a heap about Linux, setting up webservers, vim (text editor), command line, privac, free software, and so on.

          • jim says:

            C will teach you the problems that Rust solves.

            Python is easier because it automatically solves those problems (very badly) and hides the solutions from you.

            Going from Python to Rust seems like it would be difficult, while going from modern C++ to Rust is easy.

            Python is a scripting language, and people who have spent too long scripting are apt to find Rust mysterious and arbitrary, and are apt to misuse its solutions to solve the wrong problems in inappropriate ways.

        • Fëanor says:

          My comment was in the context of collapse and restoration, in the context that the cloud belongs to our enemies, and the script interpreters that run most of the world’s software are already beginning to suffer from bitrot due to forced diversity and will get much worse over the next 10-20 years.

          I do like Rust, but everyone else is right that it should not be anyone’s first programming language, and also I distrust anything coming out of Mozilla because the company itself is pozzed in the extreme. It also makes the mistake of using a central package repository, which combined with the above is a security risk. Nonetheless, those problems could be mitigated.

          OTOH, I work for a 100% white 90% male startup, probably one of a minority of software enterprises with a positive innovation-to-bullshit ratio these days, and we are switching everything over to Rust and hiring Rust programmers, so it is probably indeed the future whether that’s a good thing or not.

          • jim says:

            > It also makes the mistake of using a central package repository, which combined with the above is a security risk.

            The rust packaging system is practically designed to be a security hole and a central point of failure.

            How should package distribution work?

            The obvious solution to me is Git submodules and subtrees. For no particularly good reason I use submodules, despite no end of articles on the internet giving lucid explanations of why submodules are a bad idea. I just have not looked into the alternatives. For me, submodules just work. So, alas, do packages. Central repositories tend to be dangerously convenient.

            What are your solutions?

            The solution needs to be a decentralized git solution.

            And git is fatally flawed, because its hash algorithm is vulnerable. To use it securely, need to use its gpg integration, and pgp is flawed because its identity model is built around email identities and human memorable passphrases. It assume your root identity is your email reputation, rather than a strong master secret, and the SSL name system is completely insecure to anyone who has one of a thousand certificate authorities in his pocket, so gpg is broken at the bottom. In consequence, whenever gpg is used for software distribution, which is its main use these days, it is always used in a completely insecure manner. Our experience with crypto wallets shows that the root of identity has to be a strong master secret. We need ssh secret keys to have Zooko identities attached to them. (Which they already do, but no software uses or supports those Zooko identities.) You normally commit software over a ssh connection, and those commits should be automatically signed by the Zooko identity of the committer’s secret SSH key. Unsigned commits should get a pushed-by signature the first time they are pushed over ssh.

            We need a git upgrade that uses ssh rather than gpg identities, and which uses a strong hash that has not been touched by the NSA – meaning Blake.

            If we integrate ssh identities and strong hashes into git ssh, everything will just work, and no one has to learn anything new, other than that they had better enter a more meaningful Zooko name on their private key. At present the name defaults to whatever ssh-keygen issues.

            (Not that sha256 is insecure, but if you use it, you wind up connected to the NSA software ecosystem, which is insecure. If you use secure software that has been contaminated by the NSA, you are going to wind up using insecure software that has been backdoored by the NSA. If you want to stay clean, don’t even go near sewage. The backdoors are for the most part not hidden in the algorithms themselves, but in the apis, and if you use NSA’s secure algorithms, you are apt to find yourself using their insecure apis.)

            • Fëanor says:

              My solution is the solution that existed for years in the Linux world before things like cargo and pip came along at all: package management is the responsibility of the operating system, not the programming language. You have a central repository, but which central repository you choose to trust is a choice independent of all others, and there is a lot of competition, so maintainers have a large incentive to remain trustworthy and can do relatively little damage by defecting.

              As for actually keeping software cryptographically secure from author to user, I don’t know enough about cryptography to know what would work here. Curious, however, as to what NSA APIs you consider backdoored. Are you talking about, like, OpenSSL? The shasum command on my Linux box?

              • notglowing says:

                There’s a good reason why rust doesn’t use this model, because it was a terrible idea, and barely works for this purpose.
                C works that way, and managing dependencies in C or C++ programs is absolutely awful. It is easily the worst thing about using either language.
                It’s worse not just during development but makes deployment and/or distribution more difficult. With Rust all of this is trivial, and just works.

                The operating system should not be your package manager for a programming language, they are different things, and package managers for the operating system already in themselves are flawed enough.

                Having choices doesn’t solve any real problem, if you have 10 broken package managers, you don’t have a good package manager, *and* now everything is less reliable because everyone needs to consider their specific system incompatible with everyone else’s.

                JS/NPM (only when the libraries are well maintained), and especially Rust with Cargo actually work reliably using their own package managers. It is a pleasant experience to use cargo, and dependencies aren’t always broken. When they do break, it is almost 100% of the time because there is a C++ or C dependency that is not compiling correctly, or missing its own dependencies, which gets us back to the previous point. I have never had to struggle to get rust code to compile that wasn’t linked to C++. Cannot say this about either C or C++.
                There’s a reason why header-only libraries are popular, they eliminate these headaches.

                Further, packages need to be per-project. It’s the only sane way of managing development. That is the great innovation that NPM brought, and Cargo adopts for its own purpose. You cannot have one global store of packages where different projects use incompatible versions, every project should define its own packages and versions, and handle them independently.

                This is both to allow one to work on many different projects, and in order to allow other people working on the same project to get the same reliable environment, which is predictably recreated using files that are in source control.

                You do not have this ability with OS level package management. You just have a giant mess. OS level package management already existed before these package managers were made, we got them over time because it was not convenient or reliable.

                The way we solve this is by making package managers more secure. They should be trustless, only trusting the developers of individual packages, and not accepting binary blobs. Signed packages, directly corresponding to git commits.
                This is not impossible to do with relatively basic cryptography today.
                And the more mechanical part of distribution can easily be decentralized with IPFS.
                Avoid relying on too many packages (as JS developers tend to do), which is encouraged with a good standard library.

                  The problem is that C and C++ use the operating system ad hoc as the package manager.

                  Surely we can integrate package management with Git subtrees or submodules, rather than using a central point of failure or doing it ad hoc in an environment dependent manner.

                • jim says:

                  > The way we solve this is by making package managers more secure. They should be trustless, only trusting the developers of individual packages, and not accepting binary blobs. Signed packages, directly corresponding to git commits.

                  Exactly so. In which case the package manager is not a central repository, but rather the development environment’s integration with git submodules or subtrees, or some similar git thing created and maintained by the development environment.

              • jim says:

                > My solution is the solution that existed for years in the Linux world before things like cargo and pip came along at all: package management is the responsibility of the operating system, not the programming language.

                This solution sucks. But centralized package management is dangerous, granting far too much power to unknown people. Surely we can make package management not the responsibility of the operating system, but of the development environment’s integration with git submodules or subtrees.

                The way to go is to fix git so that every single line of code is signed by someone, with the Zooko name associated with his ssh key, whom git-blame will identify for any problem related to that line of code, and your package management rests on those signatures, rather than the mysterious authority of a central repository.

                • Fëanor says:

                  In a trust-free environment it might indeed be a good idea to have the package manager as part of the programming language ecosystem; as things are, however, I appreciate the separation of concerns. I want to be able to use a good programming language like rust without worrying about the agenda or trustworthiness of the maintainers. I do have to worry about these things with my distro maintainers, but switching distros is a much lower cost than switching programming languages.

                • jim says:

                  Trouble is that packages are profoundly untrustworthy. We are working in a hostile low trust environment which is rapidly getting less and less trustworthy.

                  The official IETF release of the IETF variant of ChaCha20 has an api which you are unlikely to use in a way that is actually secure. DMARC in theory provides security against spearfishing attacks, but evidently the actual implementations have an unknown and mysterious hole in them that allows some spearfishing attacks that it should be able to stop through. Some of the cryptographic algorithms used by SSH are known to be backdoored by the NSA, and most of them are suspect.

                  I routinely disable all cryptographic algorithms in ssh except for
                  ciphers chacha20-poly1305@openssh.com
                  macs hmac-sha2-256-etm@openssh.com
                  pubkeyacceptedkeytypes ssh-ed25519

                  I repeat, we need a git with a secure hash, routine automatic signing by ssh keys, and a package manager whose root of trust is those signatures, not a central repository operated by no one knows whom.

    “The fascinating story of Jiyan, a female guerrilla fighter who devoted twenty years of her life in the Kurdish militant struggle, reveals women’s determination for freedom not only against another oppressive regime, but also against the patriarchy.

    Jiyan Tolhildan is a young Kurdish woman living in the Kurdish region of Syria. After years of oppression by her family, her teachers and the society as a whole, Jiyan decides to go to the mountains to join the Kurdish struggle for freedom.

    When the Arab Spring breaks out Jiyan and her friends decide to go into the cities in Syria to join the protests. They also set out to educate Syrian women on women’s rights in the Rojava region. Now, six years after the Arab Spring, Kurdish forces have a semi-autonomous region in Syria. For the first time in history, women have an autonomous political organisation and an army in Syria. The women named creating this organisation “the women’s revolution.””

I’ve heard many people talk about their suffering from the second shot of J&J or Modern and how that just proved the holy vaccines is working.

      What’s interesting to me is that this will give more credence to the most extreme theories regarding the vaccine and how it will be weaponized. Most antivax people I know are not political or conspiratorial at all and just think the push is too fast and creepy. They are skeptical of anyone trying to make them do something and not answering questions, or they just think covid is overblown.

      I am more thinking lowered fertility, a modest death rate from the vaccine itself and another control tool are the problems/elite goals. This is going to make the COVID5G / Nanobot people think they were right. Is that the goal? Reuters could have just killed that story, like the media kills every story they don’t want out there. Just like they go out of their way to let us know that car accident victims and ladder falls were actually COVID deaths. They could have said they were just adulterated and left it at that. Somebody could have killed the investigation in Japan in it’s cradle

      Afghanistan and the potential narrative shift on vaccines/COVID further the discrediting of government (as did the trump hysteria and Iraq War narrative shift), which is another possible goal. Both left and right are on the same page when it comes to hating American government now.

  9. Kunning Drueger says:

    Jim, this might not be something you’re into enough to want to expound upon, but is there a trustworthy rubric for interpreting terrorist incidents, shootings, and attacks? The Colorado shooting earlier this year, the one that was fully covered until the identity of the shooter leaked, then was completely forgotten. The infrastructure attack in Tennessee during Christmas that was so portentous and is now completely forgotten. Going further back, there was an attack on an airbase in AFG that occurred after base security had been handed over to the Brits (very interesting case, worth looking into…), generated a lot of training info, then disappeared. The Mumbai Hotel attack(s) from years ago (lashkar-i-tyba sp.) and the correlation to the distributed Paris assault, both casually memory holed.

    Maybe it isn’t worthy of a standalone post, and it could definitely lead to some of the Bros here saying stuff that isn’t well thought out (me being one of those idiots), but we are potentially entering a phase of direct action on the part of the IC to control narratives, and I have to assume there is a deep pool of “””unstable individuals””” with CIs dripping poisoned honey in their ears.

              I was worried that they had the upper hand, but it is now apparent that they do not. Instead, the woke factions wants to make war on whites – with no Jewish exemption. We are on the race war path, with a high likelihood both sides want to genocide Jews. The left has been mounting escalating physical attacks on Jews, primarily as a result of their program of importing Jihadis to attack whites – they find it hard to believe when their pet Jihadis turn around and attack Jews and are refusing to acknowledge these attacks.

                Does the woke faction who wants to make war on whites consider Afghans as white?

                That would explain any plans to resume bombing Afghanistan including a flase flag attack in Kabul.

                Afghans often do look very European, so it is not unreasonable to consider them “white”, but culturally they are not.

                  There were a lot of really mundane explanations for the cheating. The AZ audit and the GA videos show how it was done. Mass mail-in ballots were sent out, chain of custody was broken, then the bad actors used that to scan ballots multiple times, drag in late-night vote dumps from their ballot snatchers, etc. Not sensational, but easier to prove and stuff that will hold up in court.

                  Then Powell and Wood and a few other turned it into a circus and gave everyone a way to ignore it. Barnes was talking about that. He was making headway until the nonsense talk started, and then people stopped working with him. It gave them a plausible reason to cut off any election verification until it was too late. Powell did not help the Trump cause, she hurt it. She did good work on Flynn, but she should have stayed out of this one. She got duped by Q.

It drove off a few Republicans who did not want to ride the crazy train. If she had kept her head and talked about what they could prove and the need to act fast and sieze the evidence to preserve it, it might have gotten more traction.

                  Instead she went off about absurd fantasies that only would have happened if Trump had a serious force of armed men at his command, which would have allowed him to react on Election Day. This destroyed her credibility and made her suggestions to start arresting people the talk of a crazy woman. It meant that the very wise advise to act quickly and stop the steal before it was solidified came from people who were making ridiculous assertions.

          You’re veering a bit into fedtalk here imo. Self-defense is already ambiguously legal in many places; duty to retreat clauses mean that any act of self-defense can be prosecuted as a murder, but a cursory review of case precedent makes it seem like the authorities are very reluctant to use their theoretical power to make self defense illegal.

          Right now, only self-defense against politically motivated attackers is illegal. Thankfully, “protesters” tend to announce where they will be, so you can stay away from them. Holy activists doing holy violence cannot be interfered with legally. But at the moment, the nog trying to grab your wallet or carjack you does not enjoy the same protections.

            If there is a protest, be far, far away from it is my advice, and seal up your house the best you can if it is coming to you. There is no sense in going looking for trouble. Dead neoreactionaries are not going to be of much use in safeguarding knowledge or rebuilding. Better to keep your head down as best you can and have as many kids as you can.

            If it gets to the point of guerilla warfare, I am coming to join up with whichever of the commenters here wants an extra gun hand nearby. I have no illusions about my ability to operate on my own. We will have to set up some sort of communication and verification, but if it is a war, we will have to band together. Let us pray it does not come down to that.

                  I am familiar with that organization. It came up a couple weeks ago and I did a brief dive into Afrikaner culture. Interesting stuff, and it mirrors so much of what Jim has talked about. The font of honors is what killed the Broederbond. They looked to the Anglosphere for their honors instead of their own, and it has nearly destroyed them. I think if the Afriforum is the evolution of the Broederbond, it is only in the sense that the former arose out of the failure of the latter to secure the Afrikaner.

          I think they still work. Delta is the response to the cheap and plentiful drugs. Become a sickness that most people never notice, and they will not take drugs to kill you.

    https://www.opindia.com/2021/08/dismantling-global-hindutva-conference-usa-audry-truschke-tulsi-gabbard-hinduism/

    Surely the cathedral is ”seeing” a growing nexus between what they claim as “white supremacy” and Hindutva/Hindu nationalism.

    Is there an attempt by the cathedral to sow distrust between these groups by using shills to poison the discourse?

    • jim says:

      The linkage that they give between white “supremacy” is true enough. White nationalists think that America should be a white Christian nation, and are apt to draw the obvious implication that India should be a Hindu nation.

      We are seeing a lot of fake white nationalist shills who think it is horrifying that Israel should be a Jewish nation, but are strangely unable to notice what George Soros and Victoria Nuland have been up to in white nations. Perhaps they will soon be joined by fake white nationalist shills who think it horrifying that India should be a Hindu nation, but I am not seeing those yet.

      • Surely there are a lot of western cathedral educated intellectuals who are horrified that anybody is attempting to forge a bond of common Aryan roots between white nationalism and Hindutva. The very mention of Aryan ancestry and its link to Hinduism seems to trigger a lot of people. In fact it appears that they cannot properly acknowledge the level of crime think (even the opindia piece I linked to is extremely apologetic, and incapable of crime think).

        Now you and I may differ on what extent aryan blood runs in my veins and yours, but to them the very topic brings out screams of rage and holy indignation.

    • Oog en Hand says:

      Yes.

    • Aidan says:

      I do not know if you live in the US or not, but if not, let me explain the situation. The Cathedral chose to import a lot of Indians as enforcers, not literal muscle, but to staff corporations and the bureaucracy. Indians in the US tend to be very outwardly conformist to Cathedral views, but in private, they hold nationalist and traditionalist beliefs and are very clannish. The Enemy may not have realized it at first, but maybe they do now. They are saying “we butter your bread, and your private beliefs which you still hold are unacceptable”. It is about trying to keep the Indians (lol) on the reservation, because they ended up importing a group hostile to their own program, and are afraid that it will rebel. An Indian in America will say something like “America is a country where everyone belongs, so we shouldn’t discriminate, but fuck the muslims in India, they should be whipped through the streets like the dogs they are.” The enemy is scared that Hindus in America will apply their nationalism to American nationalism, because it is not a huge leap.

          • That article is a good read and confirms that the Brahmin/Kshatriya alliance in power in any empire is always suspicious of Vaisya interference in their domain.

            The very existence of “middleman minority” as observed in that article is nothing more than a particularly cohesive Vaisya group that seeks upward mobility. Of course, historically the Vaisyas are often of different ethnicity/religion/race in the place they do business because Vaisyas have always been mobile, by nature of their Varnashrama dharma.

            The issue of hatred of the “middleman minority” is exacerbated when successful Vaisyas actively aspire to Brahminhood, and they are seen as dangerous rivals and enemies by the establishment Brahmin/Kshatriya combine. When a particularly successful Vaisya or group of Vaisyas tries upward social mobility to challenge the ruling Brahmin or Kshatriya, he or they becomes the target of the ruling elite’s anger who turn the Shudra/Proles against the Vaisyas.

            I live in a fairly unique place where the old type Italian mafia seems to get along pretty well with all the beaners. And it’s so far avoided turning into Guatemala like the town a few minutes away. But it’s hard to tell which places have the remnants of white organized crime, because most of them have gone 90% legit, embedded in formal institutions with probably a lot of informal under-the-table dealing, with the little crime that remains organized around avoiding the regulatory state and what seems to be neighborhood watch-type stuff where the cops look the other way.

            If you want to find a neighborhood like that, look for places with a lot of cash-and-carry businesses still owned by whites, and plenty of recent Irish or Italian petty-burgher immigrants. Italians do not come to America and just set up a tobacco store or auto garage or landscaping company. They had well-connected friends or family in town who helped them.

            • The Cominator says:

              It’d be nice if we could find places where the Italian mafia run things (most of them were fairly benign Roy Demeo types were an exception, and their neighborhoods were nice places) but the government destroyed them. I’m sure Giuliani probably regrets his big part in doing that.

                The mafia still has a lot of power in Southern Italy. Being over there as the American Empire gets more insane may not be so bad. I would guess getting a covid passport could be easily obtained through the mafia-controlled black market.

                • The Cominator says:

                  The Italian mafia in Italy (and there are a couple of mafia organizations) is a much much nastier organization than the Italian American mafia which for all the occasional bad things it did can sort of almost be described (compared to how nasty the government and all the rival gangs were) in the way Vito Corleone described it… just simple men who didn’t want to live life as virtual slaves “I refused to be a fool, dancing on the string held by all those big shots”.

                  A huge percentage of the work force is employed by the black market, so I would think they have ways around the lockdowns/covid passes.

                  From what I’ve read, and I have no personal experience with it, Italy is more like 5 separate nations forced together but each region pretty much run according to the sorts of people who live in the area. There’s no sort of allegiance to the centralized government.

        I hate to be a wet blanket with this but be careful. Had we tried a home birth with Kid #1, wifey would have been well on her way to bleeding out postpartum by the time the ambulance arrived. If you have choice available to you, ask around and choose a good hospital and obstetrician.

        • Karl says:

          Post partum bleeding is not that rare, but easily stopped with an injection. Any midwife should have in her bag what is necessary to stop post partum bleeding.

          Was there no midwife present?

          • Mike in Boston says:

            We were in the hospital and had the obstetrician (a woman who delivered a bunch of friends’ kids) present. Maybe a midwife could have handled it, of course, but being in a hospital felt like a good way to eliminate tail risk. Mind you the hosptial and doc were quite accommodating of wifey’s desire for a natural birth; YMMV.

        • Aidan says:

          It is quite possible to find an amenable hospital and doctor that will let you do a “home birth in the hospital” with medical intervention only if absolutely necessary.

    Of course it is necessary for the Taliban to form an inclusive government with the various ethnic groups of Afghanistan. The “shift” in feminism comes across as realpolitik in an attempt to carry favor with Russia and China and to prevent NATO retaliatory air strikes. The Media seems to concur, but could this possible shift be similar to what happened in Iran with a nominal conservative Islamic government adopting a degenerate female education policy?

      • neofugue says:

        Skimming through these propaganda pieces, it seems American nation building did not interfere with much of the Taliban’s initial objectives.

        • jim says:

          The Taliban finds itself in charge of cities were everyone is living on western handouts. When these handouts stop, it is likely to face problems.

          It appears to have shut down the money printing press, which is an interesting move, for such a move requires gunmen occupying the press: it has to be deliberate. As a result, suddenly everyone is without money, because the money had value only because the US taxpayer purchased it and incinerated it, and now it has value only because the Taliban has, for the moment, chosen to restrict the supply. But it is under extreme pressure to re-open the tap, which would swiftly result in hyperinflation.

          In Jalalabad, it has taken action to restore the normal entrepot and craftsman productive city economy, which did not really exist under the American occupation. Likely it will undertake similar operations in all cities – it has had Jalalabad for rather longer.

          On roads that it has held for a while, it has taken successful action to revive the silk road network, which the US occupation shut down. The silk road really requires the services of normal cities of craftsmen and stationary merchants manning entrepots.

          Looks like a conscious effort to revive the traditional Afghan economy, which the US destroyed, replacing it with the economic order of the Covid demon. (Same economic order, but different rationales. The Green New Deal is yet another rationale for the same economic order, only with worship of Gaia the demon in place of worship of the Covid demon. Pretty soon that economic order will be justified by the diversity Huītzilōpōchtli demon, who requires human sacrifices to be rolled down the steps of pyramids and eaten by the congregation.)

          These are strangely sophisticated moves, beyond the mental and organizational capability of our current elite.

          It also proposes to replace central banking with old type correspondence banking, the Hawala system, which horrifies and outrages western elites.

          As goods go through the crossroads of central Asia, money has to move in the opposite direction, which, if the plan is implemented, will mean a huge rise in Hawala, and a significant decline in (((central banking))), A certain hysteria is afflicting certain central bankers. They are excreting bricks.

          These are astonishingly subtle and sophisticated moves, that if successful strike at the beating heart of US power.

          If the Taliban succeed in reviving the Silk Road, this takes away US sea leverage over China. If they greatly expand the Hawala network and use it to provide money counterflows for goods moving along the Silk Road, this cuts the feet off central banking.

          • Rnadom says:

            @Jim could you go into more depth on why the rise of Hawala would cut the feet off central banking? Or do you mean central banking within Muslim countries?

            • jim says:

              Lots of people on the bloody borders of Islam use Hawala. It probably has more Hindu and Buddhist users than Muslim, and it has a very substantial number of Christian users. If lots of Chinese goods start passing through the silk road, which China very much wants in order to reduce its dependence on routes vulnerable to American action, a lot more Christians are going to be using it.

              When third worlders send money home to countries that use Hawala, it is usually cheaper, easier, faster, safer, and more convenient for the recipient, to send it through a first world financial institution like Remitly that is plugged into the Hawala network, than to send it through Western Union. At the same time, in a lot of south east Asian countries, the Hawala network is getting plugged in to crypto currency. So it is big, getting bigger, and has interfaces the west through financial institutions like Remitly, and through the Crypto Currency exchanges.

              If China gets their overland silk road going, chances are that in a couple of years, when you pay for a dozen Arm based Chinese made CPUs, your payment is going to pass through the Hawala network.

              Their latest CPUs are looking pretty good:

                  That’s how I regard the value of various assets: not as an all-or-nothing proposition but rather valuing each asset based on the features it has and the features it lacks.

                  Line up BTC, gold, USD bank deposits, USD cash, and other assets in a big table with the columns representing features. Put a dot in the cell where an asset has that feature. Depending on the value you subjectively place on each feature, you may find that some of those assets complement each other nicely.

                  The BTC maximalists and the Gold maximalists tend to place zero value on certain features, as is their right. I just don’t think it’s realistic.

                  He correctly predicts that governments are never going to surrender and hand the financial system they have created over to crypto currencies

                  He incorrectly thinks that this is going to make a difference.

                • Karl says:

                  Why do think that it won’t make a difference if governemts declare any crypto transaction illegal?

                  If it were illegal, how could I buy crypto?

                  Sure I could pay cash in person to a dealer I trust, like buying drugs, but that would be a real hurdle. Especially if large cash transaction are also illegal.

                  Buying crypto by transmitting money to a specified account anywhere in the Western banking system would only be possible if a plausible cover transaction is involved, like an invoice for goods or services that will not be delivered or are stated on the invoice with an amount that is much higher than the value of goods/service such that there is a tacit agreement that I also get crypto for my payment.

                  Of course, people could first get an account with a financial institution outside of the Wesern banking system, e.g. Hawala, but the government would surely make having such an account also illegal.

                  If crypto is illegal, any transaction involving crypto would carry a risk. Some people who are heavily involved in illegal trade, e.g. drugs, surely won’t mind, but out side of such circles? Who would be willing to risk having all his assets (except crypto of course) sized and be imprisoned for something like 5 years?

                  Crypto is anonymous, but the side of the trade where cryto is used to pay for goods delivered to you or where you give something to receive crypto will involve a substantial risk.

                  Did I overlook something? I do not understand your confidence in this respect.

                  1. Soon you will be earning crypto, not buying it for federal notes.

                  2. No one wants to fill out the intrusive id required to legally purchase crypto, but somehow. strangely, they manage to purchase it anyway.

                  > If crypto is illegal, any transaction involving crypto would carry a risk.

                  Everything is illegal. If you create value, you are committing several felonies per day, each of them with several years potential imprisonment. The laws are impossible to comply with. If you work in regular employment, you imagine yourself to be insulated from the fact that your employer is breaking no end of laws, but theoretically you are not, though in in practice they will ignore you to go after the deep pockets.

                • Karl says:

                  I see you point, but some laws have always been more strictly enforced than others.

                  If people are paid in crypto the government’s ability to collect taxes is severly reduced. Every government employee will quickly understand this and there give enforcement of crypto related laws a very high priority

                  Law are enforced to the extent that they can be easily enforced, and that enforcement of ridiculous or impossible to comply with laws do not result in a well connected interest group screaming.

                  Thus, for example, enforcement of the laws to shut down western connections to the Hawala network died as a result of ngos, aka the state department, screaming when they found that they had no way to pay local employees for anything that actually produced value (since most third world banks are only in the business of transferring stolen money) As a result, you can still easily pay people with US money through the Hawala network, even though it is seriously illegal and there is erratic and unpredictable enforcement.

                  And very few laws are harder to enforce than the existing crypto currency laws. They are going after the low hanging fruit, and show absolutely no interest in the high hanging fruit. This is unlikely to change.

      • Aidan says:

        Substack is annoying in its lack of a comments section, or I would reply to Bond there.

        Bond assumes a level of competence that the NOG no longer possesses, among other issues. Although to be fair, I can imagine some bugman neocon wonk at rand or whatever giggling to himself thinking that the Taliban will attack China to save their fellow muslim yoghurts. But if that is the plan, it will backfire.

        The retreat of US forces from Afghanistan was fast, chaotic, and terrified. Even the generals were shocked, confused, and in denial. Does not speak to it being planned 4d chess.

        He assumes disorder will result from Taliban control. I expect the exact opposite.

        He expects that the Taliban will do as USG expects, but USG is notoriously vulnerable to taqqiya.

        He expects that China will not be friendly with Afghanistan, but China is being very friendly, and the Taliban just a little less in response. Clear that China really wants a friendly Afghanistan, and clear that it is in Afghanistan’s best interest to be friendly with China.

        He, or at least USG would, assume that the Taliban is resisting foreign influence in Afghanistan in general, when they were resisting condom on banana, and China is smart enough to leave sharia alone.

        Bond says that China wants to be a sea power and would hate to have to pay attention to its western borders, but if Jim is right, China does not want all that much to be a sea power and would love to focus on its western neighbors, which until recently were dangerously close to US military bases.

        Also very hard to imagine that the status damage to the US Empire is worth even an insurgency in Western China, if it somehow materialized. The US getting mogged out of Afghanistan by a bunch of goat herders makes China look like a more attractive suzerain. US media has already pulled the Hitler card, already accused China of death camps and genocide, and China just shrugged it off. I can’t imagine that China fighting a jihadist uprising could be used as a cassus belli if “literally hitler” didn’t work.

        • p says:

          I don’t think these counterarguments amount to much. The plan to use the Taliban to destabilize China may be stupid, yes, but this doesn’t necessarily render it nonexistent. Bond doesn’t argue that the plan isn’t stupid, just that it exists.

          The withdrawal was obviously botched, the idea was for the “Afghan army” to put up a few months or at least weeks of fight for saving face, instead of folding in hours. Again, this doesn’t preclude the transfer of power (and weapons, and money) being planned.

          I do think that China wants to be a sea power. Its long term plan is, in my opinion, to somehow get access to the Indian ocean. (Short term is of course take Taiwan and rule the China seas.)

              2. by 2020 China’s maritime interests would be secured by the PLAN’s capability to command the “near seas” out to the Second Island Chain, which runs from the Kurils through Japan and the Bonin Islands, then on through the Mariana Islands, Palau, and the Indonesian archipelago with the likely embrace of Java, Singapore, and the Malacca Straits; and

This would protect India and also key British sea trade routes by stopping Russia from gaining a port on the Persian Gulf or the Indian Ocean.[2][3] Russia proposed Afghanistan as the neutral zone.[8] The results included the failed First Anglo-Afghan War of 1838, the First Anglo-Sikh War of 1845, the Second Anglo-Sikh War of 1848, the Second Anglo-Afghan War of 1878, and the annexation of Kokand by Russia.”

      Oh fucking please. Afghanistan is a backwater wasteland of barbarians, dust, poppies, and dancing boys. If it’s so hugely important, why wasn’t the world thrown into chaos when the Taliban ruled it back in the late ’90s. I remember the late ’90s. I only ever heard about Afghanistan in lame guilt-tripping chain emails that female college students would send, complaining about women’s rights and the Bamiyan Buddhas. Nobody noticed or cared that the silk road was closed or that Russia did or didn’t have access to the Indian Ocean.

      >nonsensical riddles about condoms and bananas

      The meaning of the condom on the banana is not mysterious in the least. It’s a synecdoche for the globalist feminist pro-sodomy godless hedonist utilitarian worldview. It symbolizes the nameless religion that the US government was trying to convert the Pashtun to.

It’s known as the graveyard of empires because empires dumb enough to mess around there are empires on the way out, not because failing to control it fatally compromises the empires’ strategic or economic position.

When China went into decline it became less important and when European traders and warriors made the world safe for long distance sea trade places like Afghanistan lost it’s importance.

            Sea trade is vastly superior to the silk road but as empires crumble land routes become easier to secure than sea routes.

              The Taliban have been doing a good job keeping the roads open wherever they could control a road going all the way through.

              The American sponsored government has had random government thugs randomly shaking down merchants so as to make it impossible to move goods through government controlled Afghanistan, with the result that the entire government controlled economy was shut down and everyone was entirely dependent on US handouts, which have suddenly ended.

Lack of greater establishment making it *more* attractive to waning powers, not less. That powers eternally shuffle around it like a ‘great game’, is an ultimate expression of the fact that they *can’t* make any establishment in it.

        If Afghanistan actually granted access to the Indian Ocean, it would have been extremely valuable not to Russia, but to China.

        The Antichrist is not to be found in the overt deniers, but in the small affirmers, whose Christ is only on the lips. Miserius is a servant of the Antichrist.

        There are many evil people in Orthodox Christianity, and Miserius is one of them. LeftCaths are demonic, but LeftOrthos are something else. While they seldom attend church, there is a palpable air of death that surrounds them. Perhaps as a Progressive being surrounded by evil on a daily basis has given me the ability to detect the subtle ques, but there have been numerous instances when my gut raised alarm at seemingly nice people only for me find out later they were demon worshipers.

        Commies hate monastics and express a special type of derangement towards murdering them. There is something about a Holy ascetic life that bothers the demon worshiper, although I left Progressivism before I reached that stage.

        • The Cominator says:

          I think monasticism has a place for men… though perhaps like Peter the Great it should be restricted to men 40 or over. On the other hand I don’t think it has a place for women… Luther was right about nunneries.

              • Alfred says:

                I can see one case for this. I have a relative who suffered an injury as a child that prevented her from having kids but didn’t discover it until after several years of trying to have children with her husband. She eventually adopted a girl from overseas which worked out horribly with the girl rejecting her after college as such adoptionees tend to do today. Only close relatives should be adopted.

                She got married and divorced a couple times but late in life she became a fervent leftist wack job. The whole thing Jim says women become evil and insane when they don’t have kids? I see it in her. She’d send my entire extended family to deathcamps if she knew we all voted for Trump. All she has left in life is her insane religion to the point where no can stand to be around her.

                She’d be a good candidate for a nunnery just to stop her from making others lives miserable.

                  I’m not sure what medieval judges would have done with some who was not Christian. My guess is they would have allowed conversion (reconversion?) to Christianity so that cloisters would be an option.

      Repeating a question I asked about Christianity below but seems not to have been noticed.

      What if the problems are intrinsic to Christianity, though? If holiness is defined by loving everyone as yourself how do you stop that from spiraling into “give everything in your country away to the four billion niggers pouring across the border because God demands it”? It seems like it could be made to work in a era of small populations with lots of space and limited communications, but how do you get it to function when every parasite on the planet can see the riches of your society and wants a piece of it? How does a good Christian bring himself to machine gun hordes of screaming foreign women and helpless babies crying for mercy and food, as will be necessary if any white society is to survive the coming storm?

        • Calvin says:

          What do you do when hundreds of millions of Africans, having inevitably exhausted the carrying capacities of their native lands, come storming to your borders, pushing women and children to the fore, demanding to be let in and fed? That post doesn’t answer that. It seems to me all any progressive need do is wave the verses about “doing unto the least of these” into the faces of the border guards and any sincere Christians among them are at the very least extremely reluctant to do what needs to be done to preserve their homelands. The image of being sent to hell for gunning down thousands of genuinely destitute and desperate refugees seems hard to overcome, but if you don’t there goes any white society anywhere.

                Gnosticism

                Are you a sock puppet account of Miserius? Calvin is erecting a Progressive straw man of poor innocent refugees completely helpless at the mercy of the evil white man being gunned down by vile racists. If refugees wish to flood into western countries, they will be turned back. The question is dishonest, manipulative and unresponsive.

They will always put the most hateful, evil, moronic, stupid, and wicked interpretation on any Christian words they can use against Christians and Christianity, and it just wastes electrons to debate such interpretations as if they were serious, honest, sincere, and well intentioned misunderstandings of Christian doctrine.

                  When a non Christian tells a Christian that the bible and the Church fathers command X, it is very rarely the case that the bible and the Church fathers command X, and explaining what they do command is a pointless waste of space.

                  When Christians tell non Christians that Christ commands the Christian to do X, usually the truth as they understand it. When a non Christian tells a Christian what Christ commands, it very rarely is and discussing the matter rather than simply denouncing the conversation is apt to be a waste of time and electrons.

                  Women are inherently attracted to antisocial behavior and given the chance will often prefer waiting for a booty call from Jeremy Meeks to a proper marriage, destroying any chance of stable or growing populations.

                  Race matters. There are inferior and superior races, and the superior races will inevitably be disproportionately represented in all fields requiring discipline, intelligence, and forethought. Blacks are inferior to whites in all three of these things.

                  And, again, I’m not religiously affiliated myself, but here goes on those basic tenants: Jesus Christ is Lord. Born to the Virgin Mary in Bethlehem, was crucified, died, and was buried. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven. He will return to judge the living and the dead. He is fully God and fully man. God is three and God is one.

            I have to agree with you here, Calvin. Gunning down hordes of unarmed, desperate, poverty-stricken women and children looks and feels extremely bad, and it’s going to be very hard to get guards of any faith, but especially Christianity, to do it.

            However, this Green March/Camp of the Saints scenario, while a good metaphor for what’s happening, doesn’t happen literally very often at all. The answer is not to mow down the migrant mob, but to prevent it from forming in the first place. You firmly control the border in the times and places where your guards can actually manage the situation, which is the vast majority of them, and you arrest, deport, and turn away the migrants. Internally, you severely punish anyone who employs an illegal alien, you do not give government benefits to illegal aliens, and you swiftly send any illegal aliens you catch either back home or to an unpleasant holding camp on a remote Pacific island. Weakness invites predation, strength deters it. Follow these common sense prescriptions, and you’re not going to see howling mobs rushing your hapless border guards’ machine guns.

            For the modern Christians who demand that we take care of every invader at the gates who claims hardship back home, Hell has nothing to do with it, because they don’t really believe in Hell.

          How do you square that with Jesus’ order to love your enemies, not just those who love you, or Paul’s rather more specific command that if your enemy is hungry, feed him?

          • jim says:

            Saint Paul most certainly did imagine the situation where there would be far too many hungry people looking for a handout, and gave us specific, detailed, practical, useful, and sensible instructions on how to deal with the issue.

            Which instructions can be summarized as tough love for useless people, and tougher lover for enemy useless people. The point most relevant to our current crisis being that any young women currently receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children need to be shotgun married.

              Hmmm, I guess you could call it tough love, to force people back to their inevitable deaths due to their own incompetence and overpopulation, but it just seems like a stretch. I just have a hard time seeing people that were not desperate and starving themselves taking that interpretation over and against the progressive one that you should let them in. It just seems like by the time anyone would think that way it would already be too late.

              I could see it being plausibly Christian if you added something like the ability to help said people in the afterlife, by prayer or something, once they’ve been safely ejected from this world. Would that work? I don’t know, but I know some Christians pray for the dead so maybe?

                  Which is certainly a mighty big brigade, but I doubt they are too worried about what Jesus said. They would think he was just a first century Jewish community organizer, so what would he know? He did not even drive a Prius.

                  That is the relevance of the demon worshiper test. I don’t think you will find too many Christians who can pass the demon worshiper test supporting open borders in a hostile and dangerous world.

                  The typical good Christian who actually is Christian may offer a homeless person a meal on the porch, but it will be on the porch, not the kitchen, and she will be packing heat.

            I wouldn’t be too hard on Calvin; he sees cucked Christians today, who have holiness spiraled “love thy enemy” and correctly wonders how a Christian state religion is going to handle that holiness spiral in the future. Not that Jim and other commenters have not already addressed it, but some people are new and haven’t read the seminal posts. Still might be useful to have a copypasta to address the oft-raised concern of holiness-spiraled Christian pacifism.

            I do not know the Greek, but the Latin Bible makes a firm distinction between ingroup and outgroup enemies, the neighbor with whom you have a zoning dispute and the enemy besieging your gates, and the word used for “love” is quite a bit different than the modern meaning of “love”.

            The word used for “enemy”, inimicus, evolved etymologically into the modern english enemy, but “enemy” has acquired the meaning of the external foe making war on you- the original Latin is closest in meaning to the slang term “beef”. To translate it into something moderns can understand, Paul’s commandment would be “if that nigga you beefin’ wif hard up, give ‘im a hand, then you ain’t got beef no more, you got a homie”.

            Because of massively centralized police state, modern whites cannot understand living in conditions where serious and potentially violent disputes with fellow members of your tribe are likely, but that is still the reality for urban blacks, so if I translate into their language you might be able to understand it.

            The word “diligere”, translated as “love”, but became “diligence”, is best translated as tough love, or respect/honor, and it was taken for granted that a man would give himself tough love- restraint and self-discipline in self-interest. When you love your enemy as yourself, well, you need to be pretty hard on yourself to be successful and competent. It’s not some gay hippie self-love shit. The stuff in the bible about enemies is not advice for a state dealing with hostiles (hostis), it is advice for getting along with troublesome neighbors, advice that ancient people very much needed, if you read about blood feuds in the sagas or observe the modern black ghetto. Ancient people understood this implicitly, but the restored Church will need to explain it, and we need a proper translation of the Bible.

              But seems to me the matter can be easily resolved with a refugee shill test, something like: ‘what happens to a nation if it lets in masses of faraway refugees?’
              A) given enough time they mostly assimilate into our culture and copy our norms and values. That is after all how integration works.
              B) they take their unique perspective with them allowing for cultural enrichment. Multicultural societies have always driven innovations throughout history.
              C) it is a sign that the nation is in decline and no longer defends its borders. The refugees act as conquerors, and the natives as if they are defeated. Not to mention diversity + proximity = war.
              D) they often come from poverty- and war-struck countries, and it is our moral duty to help them. Perhaps they will see the light and convert to our faith, but that is up to them —- our task is merely to help.

                  My understanding of your position Jim, and correct me if I’m wrong, is that Islam is not agreement capable because of its historical traditions and the behaviors of its adherents, backed by the predominant interpretations of its holy texts. That Christianity is more desirable for a state religion because it’s troublesome textual sections are rebutted or expounded upon by other books or quotations that rulers can choose to emphasize to neutralize the bad effects any particular quote might be bring about in a society ready to go through a holiness spiral.

                  What, if anything, is different about Islam to cause this? Do the bad parts of the Quran outweigh the good moreso than in the Bible?

The holy texts of Christianity are eminently rational, sane, pragmatic, and practical, it is just that there is a whole lot of potential there for holiness spiraling, which has to be firmly and vigorously squished.

                  The holy texts of Islam actually have less potential for holiness spiraling (not that that has stopped them) but the trouble is that while the holy texts of Christianity are aimed at high internal and external cooperate/cooperate equilibrium, the holy texts of Islam expect and intend a state of permanent and continual war and betrayal. They are optimized for defect/defect.

                  Open priesthood is at the roof of the holiness spiral problem. A theoretical perfect religion will still inevitably get holiness spiraled to demonic levels with an open priesthood.

                  I have to disagree with you regarding Islam’s potential for holiness spiraling, Jim. It looks to me that Islam, with its open priesthood and subjective requirements for a caliph is just as vulnerable to holiness spiraling as Christianity. It’s just it’s holiness spirals tend less toward self abnegation and more towards murdering everyone else for insufficient Islam.

                What happens to a people that permit mass alien migration in to their holdings?

                A) Given enough time they mostly assimilate into the native culture and copy their norms and values, which creates the ground for productive civil society. This is after all how the melting pot of integration works.
                B) They take their unique perspective with them, which must be preserved in their new homes, allowing for cultural enrichment. Multicultural societies have always driven innovations throughout history.
                C) It is a sign that a nation is in decline and lacks the will or ability – which is the same thing – to defend its territory. The migrants act as conquerors, and the natives act as if they are defeated. Diversity + proximity = war.
                D) It is our moral duty to help them, especially if they are impoverished and war-stricken people fleeing from impoverished and war-stricken nations. Whether they adopt our ways or not is up to them, but it is not the important thing —- our task is merely to help, one way or another.

                Violence is not bad. Failure to cooperate with your ingroup is bad. The problem with niggers is not that they are violent. Before the cops, white communities solved crime with huge levels of violence. We’ve had judges for as long as we’ve had kings, but getting the crook in front of the judge is your problem, as it should be- if the suspect resists, you whack him with a stick until he stops moving, and if he runs, he gets declared an outlaw and men were expected to kill him on sight. The problem with niggers is that they can’t achieve cooperation, which makes the places they live into ugly wastelands.

                  Right. My town is 95% white, so crime is very low, but there’s a growing drug problem. One motel is ground central for it, and everyone knows it. A dozen armed men stationed around it, three shifts of four from dusk to dawn, could end the problem. But that would be illegal and get them arrested. So people complain that the cops aren’t doing anything, and the cops get defensive and say they can’t do anything until they’re called to a specific crime, and the cop-defenders wave their Back-the-Blue flags and say how dare you, and so it goes on.

                  Now concerned citizens are gathering evidence of zoning violations to try to get the place shut down that way. Anything to deal with the problem without just giving good men the authority to deal with it directly.

        > If holiness is defined by loving everyone as yourself how do you stop that from spiraling into “give everything in your country away to the four billion niggers pouring across the border because God demands it”?

        Has anyone on Jimblog noted that the lefties who “love” dispossessed Africans and Adidas-iphone Arabs are in fact full of hate? Scott Alexander, of all people, noticed it. His librul friends got all upset because rednecks rejoiced over the death of Osama bin Laden. “No one should be happy over the death of another human being!” Then they threw a jubilee when Margaret Thatcher died.

        1 John 4:20: “If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?”

        Likewise, if a man does not love his neighbor, next to whom he lives, how can he love some stranger on a distant continent?

        There’s something deeply pharisaic about taking the command to love your neighbor and turning it into a performance show wherein one pretends to love strangers, while openly hating his actual neighbors.

        From Mark 7: “He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. 7Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 8For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. 9And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. 10For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death: 11But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free. 12And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother; 13Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.”

        I’m not entirely sure how to put this into words, but Orthodoxy is well insulated against what you call holiness spirals. One of the most important concepts is not to judge others.

        Matthew 7: “Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.”

        This isn’t interpreted in the demonic sense, that “you can’t form a moral judgment of drag queen story because don’t judge lol.” It means rather that you shouldn’t let the sins of others blind you to your own sins, which is the universal human tendency. You’re not supposed to flaunt your holiness in comparison to others, which is the central mechanism of the holiness spiral.

        Cathedral spirituality is, of course, the demonic inverse of Orthodoxy. To them, holiness exists only when displayed and in comparison to others.

  22. Shooter McGavin says:

    Was thinking about my debate with Jim on the trinity. I realized that my own theology required that Christ have a divine nature. His human nature is born and dies, while his divine nature must be eternal. His divine nature, as well as the Father and the Holy Spirit, are eternal and therefore inextricable. The Holy Spirit relating between the Father and the Son as Aquinas believed and of which I am convinced forms the consubstantial trinity. Therefore, God is three and is one.

    I would only remark that I believe you are doing yourself a disservice by leaving the trinity in the mystery box.

    • Wulfgar Thundercock III says:

      It has to remain a mystery, because it is part of that which is beyond us. Any time someone come forward and says, “I have fully understood God,” that man is either lying or a fool. In either case he is dangerous. Some things are beyond us because they are greater than what we can perceive. We should be glad there is still a little mystery in the world.

      • Shooter McGavin says:

        You are conflating my understanding of an important doctrine with a complete understanding of God. Was Aquinas wasting his time when he tried to rationally explicate the doctrine? What about the whole tradition of theology? If Christian doctrine is always left in a shroud of mystery then atheism will always appear as the more rational and scientific worldview. I don’t think that this need be the case since it surely has and will lose many potential converts.

        Even in my days of listening bible study almost everyday I still cannot grasp why all of sudden people need to accept trinitarian doctrine to be God believer. In my understanding in the old days of Isreal the criteria seems a lot simpler.

        2. Don’t blaspheme God
        3. Don’t do this list of things (seems like a lot until I realize it only fills 2 4A paper on 12 point font)

          Because when you allow for one Son of God who can change the rules, then you end up with a never end stream of Sons of God each claiming total religious authority and before you know it your religion has gone to shit. However if that one Son of God, who’s really just part of the Triune God and there won’t be a second one because God is 1 and God is 3, not 4 or 5.

            Muhammad was not just prophet of Allah, he is a God only very slightly below to Allah, Muhammad is present in daily prayer always proceding Allah.

            >there be an unending stream of Prophet’s of Allah who came after him creating endless disunity

            No need for new Muhammad, scholars are creating disunity among moslem. Sunni Shia divide, even among Sunnis the 4 schools of Sunni disagree on a lot of things, so they don’t mingle.

            Moslem are forbidden to marry moslem from different schools of Sunni (I know it first hand).

              coming out from His presence.

              Thousands upon thousands attended Him,

              and myriads upon myriads stood before Him.

              The court was convened,

              and the books were opened.

              11Then I kept watching because of the arrogant words the horn was speaking. As I continued to watch, the beast was slain, and its body was destroyed and thrown into the blazing fire. 12As for the rest of the beasts, their dominion was removed, but they were granted an extension of life for a season and a time.

              13In my vision in the night I continued to watch,

              and I saw One like the Son of Manb

              He approached the Ancient of Days

              They did not break them equally. They broke some of them rather specifically, and broke them as a collective group, not just individually. There was a direct relation of material and effective causation between breaking certain commandments as a group, as a religion and a tribe, and getting expelled, because certain commandments, when you break them, you piss other people off.

There was no such thing as NEETS and boomers spent their weekdays at something called “jobs” where they earned money and status and created useful things. Of course there were no smartphones, Internet, or social media. When boomers socialized, they did it face-to-face like men. Computer types were scoffed at as nerds or social retards.

    Now on the weekends, boomers liked to party. The would go to places called “clubs” were there were boomer chicks (probably your mom) and they would socialize, dance, and drink till the early morning hours. They never feared catching a cold or flu. Often times the night would end with heterosexual activity. Boomers called it hooking up. Boomers never got confused about their own gender. And homosexuals were despised and made fun of by all. On Sundays, boomers would go to church and confess their sins. Even though they were human, they never lost site of God.

    Here we are today. You millennial types don’t know crap! You think you’re edgy and hip but you’re all a bunch of INCELS hiding in grandmas basement.

        My parents attended the local Presbyterian church in order to get asked to join the nearby country club. No one at church took it seriously; it was about socializing with others at coffee hour while having one’s children undergo basic religious education.

        The Progressive state relies on holding a monopoly on all social organization, and Miserius was sent here to dissuade people in Western countries from joining churches, whether Orthodox, Roman Catholic, or Protestant. Ecumenism is the sin of phyletism, and many apostate cradles hate the idea of their adult after-school club being turned into a real church. Most apostates attend church infrequently or not at all, so fear genuine Christians joining.

        In order for reactionaries to win, we must organize and network through religion, for our words on this blog are meaningless without action.

    Hi Jim,

    I live in one of the EU countries (my country being somewhat corrupt) with a covid vaxx pass required to visit many places. Obviously, as time goes on more and more places will be excluded to unvaxxed people, and eventually grocery stores may even be, in the not too distant future.

    Because of this, what do you think is my best course of action? Obviously not going to take the clot shot. In my opinion, people buying black market/fake paper covid passes are asking for massive trouble, as if or when they get caught the book will be thrown at them for not taking their vaxx-sacrement. So I don’t want to do this in an amateur way. Hypothetically, I think my best course of action is to offer a doctor a small fee in exchange for putting me in the official database. Would you agree? Do you have any idea on the best countries in the EU to do this at? I probably cannot travel outside my country unless getting the vaxx pass at the destination is a sure thing. Am I better off going to a rural vaxx clinic or a corrupt large city? How much money should I offer to show I am genuine but not a glowie? Or is there a better way to avoid the covid pass entirely?

    I know it is very hard to offer advice without knowing my situation intimately, but I would appreciate your answer as this is quite worrying to me and I want to get ahead of it before things really start holiness spiralling badly.

    • jim says:

      You are over estimating the efficiency of enforcement. Complying with obnoxious laws is apt to be amazingly complicated and difficult, and ignoring them amazingly easy and safe. For most obnoxious laws, they really never get all their ducks in a row about enforcement.

      But clearly, the best way is to find a friendly doctor, or even a friendly nurse, who will allow you to fake inoculating yourself, and pretend to not know. I would not offer any money directly but I would go to an unreasonably expensive clinic, where the staff tend to be more helpful and more “helpful”. If you are already paying through the nose, confident and pleasant interaction will get you quite few little extra benefits. A female staff member is apt to comply with any reasonable request, and also to comply with quite unreasonable requests.

      • Euranon says:

        You are probably correct that I am over estimating enforcement efficiency, although I have seen some Anglo countries successfully fining individuals thousands of dollars for the most minute amount of disrespect to the covid regime, making me think that enforcement efficiency is not as weak as you suppose either.

        Regarding self-injection while the nurse looks the other way, what would be a reasonable excuse for this? I can’t imagine a nurse going for this, regardless of expensiveness and pleasantries.

        Also, do you think this is even worth the risk of being reported, or do you think I should simply not comply and hope covid pass restrictions don’t further tighten/wont be enforced efficiently?

          Ask yourself what would Sean Connery or Hans Solo do when interacting with the nurse.

          Chances are that the Covid state will be endlessly tightened, and will be enforced with less and less efficiency.

If countries start deploying these passes, I am not excessively concerned about the government authority itself, but rather about the zealot normie nextdoor. The celerity with which the hatred against dissidents, instilled by the Cathedral, spread among population started to worry me. There seems to be just too many people, “normal” people, too eager to inflict whatever misery they can to “anti-vaxxers”, and it is quite clear that “anti-vaxxer” is just a codeword for “non leftist”, as the MSM keeps repeating over and over that objections to the holy vaccine all come from the “far right conspiracy theorists” and such.

If you want to enter a restaurant, a hotel, a gym, etc. you are legally required to either have a vaccination pass, a certifacte that you recoverd from covid or a negative test result not older than 24 h. And of course, you are required to wear a mask, unless you have a medical exemption.

            People stop caring. If you confidently walk into a shop or restaurant, chances are staff will simply assume that you have a medical exemption. The more expensive the restaunrant, shop, hotel the better your chances.

            Likewise with your papers. You’ll have an excellent chance that staff will assume that you have the necessary papers and not bother checking.

    I want to start by saying I am not a scientist and I have only a passing vocabulary for discussing physics or chemistry.

    I think the Cathedral is a society level structure that defies bright lines and clear delineations. It is inherent to the construction itself, that being a distributed memeplex that is inherently invisible to itself. I think of it as a sort of astrological entity that is so large there’s no telescope or position wherein it could be seen completely. We can see stars (Harvard, Hollywood) and we can detect localized effects (Antifa being released, 1/6 participants being tortured) and we can even make some fairly accurate predictions (Jim on the fall of Kabul, Jim on the Red Wave/Blue Win), but we cannot, at this time, accurately map it out. We also seem to have issues with establishing the network of causal relationships, for instance is CNN a star or is it a localized effect? Is Tucker Carlson a member, agent, or dupe?

    Pooch and Ducking Man have made assertions with which I disagree (Congress members as power holders and Elon Musk as member/agent respectively), but while I feel as if I argued against the former effectively I have a harder time articulating a riposte to the latter. While I disagree, I think they both are being logical and reasonable and I see why they say what they say. Am I a part of the Cathedral? I’ve worked in The Voice, I attended a University meaning I helped fund it as well as participated in more than a few events, conferences, etc. I was a voice in opposition many times and exposed a few people to Antiversity-esque ideas, but we know from the Uniparty concept that opposition within the official acceptable framework is a fundamental part of the continuity and coherence of the Cathedral.

    Is it possible to map super-systems like the Cathedral, USG, or the State Department? What intellectual language should be used to articulate the mapping? Is there a utility to establishing if certain people, groups, or associations are explicitly part of the Cathedral?

              I believe this shows that the Cathedral at some level considers him an enemy, but not universally. The high-level board that does command and control is either undecided, split, or indifferent, but lower-level Cathedral operatives dislike Musk.

The issue is just that he’s a white male who wants to actually get shit done, and while that’s an aesthetic the left hates, the faction of the left currently in power can’t quite afford to openly say they’re anti-getting-shit-done. So Elon currently has them in a bind.

                  A better internet and better rockets are not a national security interest. They are in the interests of individual humans and of the human species.

                  > people absolutely hate Musk because he has completely destroyed their aerospace cred and caused them to lose face.

                  Corruption and incompetence that destroyed their aerospace cred caused them to lose face long before Musk. The problem was that NASA was losing the capability to build rocket engines even as they started the shuttle project.

                  They put wings on it because they were having increasing difficulties putting engines on it, so they decorated it with entirely useless wings to create the appearance of progress, when in fact there was regress.

                  Rockets and long range artillery were one of the first areas of technology to be devoured by the priesthood, because it is the area of technology most closely linked to the state, which is the source of the priesthood’s power. Back in those days it was not Shaniqua yet, but it was academic pseudo engineers replacing actual engineers, it was academic accreditation that destroyed rockets.

                  The decline of rockets and long range artillery is most definitely not in the national security interest. Those who actually care about national security love Musk, hate NASA, and are none too keen on large elements of our national security apparatus who have lost interest in national security and are primarily interested in national delusion.

He does not seem to be aware that anyone might disagree, so opsec does not even occur to him.

                  He confidently believes he is working on privacy and secrecy technology – but obviously no one wants to be private from legitimate authority, do they? Except for Nazis and criminals.

                  A conspiracy has opsec and the curtain for the man to stand behind. Not a conspiracy, because no curtain, and completely worthless opsec.

                  Some of his (in)security design is quite good, and could be used for another purpose. A sword cuts both ways. The technology is neutral, it is just a tool that can be used by bad people for bad purposes or good people for good purposes. He says he is working on privacy and secrecy technology, and in fact he is. His code cannot be used except for his purposes, but his design can be used for purposes that would horrify him.

                  Black pillers want us to abandon swords because our enemies wield swords.

            The attack on the sex industry through taming onlyfans and pornhub could be the jewish pornographers trying to keep their power. notice what content they attacked: for onlyfans it was whores who had no (((managers))) and for pornhub it was mainly amateur content.

            • The Cominator says:

              Pornhub as far as I could see was responding to holiness spiraling on supposed women trafficking and it was a joke because the other big porn sites didn’t follow suit. When the government wants something done all the major providers “independently” decide to do it at the same time. Like banning Alex Jones. Since they did not the directive did not come from the government directly.

      It might be where the anti-sex types and the worried establishment types find common ground. Ban porn, so that the glorious lesbian revolution can begin and so that the incels do not turn into an army. Most of the social media comments on Taliban “abusing” women have been along the lines of, “if she didn’t want to get beat by the Taliban, she should have stayed in the kitchen.” How much is irony and how much is truth in jest is another question, but it might be worrying them. I know I am worried about what is happening, and I am not the one responsible for it.

      Banning OF could be a sop to the people they consider Y’all Queda, but it is hard to tell. I know OF was working on this for a while, because service restrictions were starting to bite them. It’s been in the news before, but this announcement could be timed to placate the incel mob. Either way, it is going to be fascinating to see how women react to this, and how OF dies without porn. Clearly it’s not a business decision going on here, or if it is, it is some Harvard MBA-level stupidity.

    • Karl says:

      I don’t think the Cathedral can make radical decisions to solve any problem. It can only go ever more leftwards. There is neither will nor consciousness in a holyness spiral. It just happens, like a stampede.

      • Yul Bornhold says:

        Yes. This sort of thinking is political animism. Moldbug’s main point, ten years back, was that the Cathedral acts out of collective unconscious yearning for power, not out of any reasoned movement towards a goal. This is the understanding that divides reaction from normie politics, qtardism, conspiracy thinking and pretty much everything else.

        A state governed by the *will* makes sense. A state governed by the will is natural. Monarchy works because the king is an exalted alpha and our brains understand alpha. Real democracy with real elections sort of syncs with the human brain. “The will of the people” is nonsense but “the majority” is real, if transient and unstable. But we are under neither of these systems.

        The Cathedral is a collection of processes. No one is in charge. Even that mega Zoom call that triggered the “fortifying” of the election was only the spark that started a process. Once they begun the process, the participants couldn’t possibly halt the steal if they’d wanted to, even though it was months away. The “fortification” itself wasn’t even their idea but rather inspired by the media’s blathering about Hitler-Trump and the Mexican holocaust. The media, in turn, got their idea from Harvard which is fueled by envy, not by rational planning.

        If someone says the Cathedral “decides” to do something, he’d do well to point out where in the vast organism these decisions are made and how they transmitted from that point.

        • The Cominator says:

          At lower levels it works more like hat.

          But the fact that narratives can turn on a dime suddenly and that they can speak with one voice and decide for instance to go 24/7 orange man bad strongly implies command and control at the higher levels. Zuckerberg did not want to affiliate but was strongarmed, who strongarmed him.

          He gives orders who can enforce those orders, who could strongarm Zuckerberg? In my opinion the social network that controls the security state.

          • Karl says:

            A school of fish can also turn on dime.

            Of course some people have influence. Sometimes influence is enough to trigger a turn of events or to cause a stampede in a given direction. That is different from control because there are always only a few directions to escalate holiness. As soon as someone has control, the holiness spiral is stopped

          • Kunning Drueger says:

            This makes no sense. Karl pointed out schooling fish, and I think that single argument guts the C&C paradigm completely. There are dozens of extant biological models that reinforce the axiom that coordination does not imply command and control. Believing that there is some control group out there, pulling strings and making decisions, sounds like hollow conspiracy theory. I want to be clear, I’m not invoking that term to quash dialogue. I genuinely think that the idea of a C&C entity is a deliberately propagated falsity.Crowds are an example of what we’re dealing with. Crowds can be led, they can be planned and coordinated and used. But they don’t have to be. An entity can arrange factors to generate a crowd, but that doesn’t mean they control it.

            What substantial evidence can you provide that points to some centralized control of the Cathedral?

            • jim says:

              The school of fish may change direction suddenly, but every fish is perfectly aware that it is changing direction, and its neighbors are changing direction.

              With schooling fish the school makes a simple, somewhat random, decision to go one way rather than another way.

              Suddenly agreeing on a new story is more complex, and thus more indicative of command and control. The new story is adopted without debate, without coming from any identifiable source, and without anyone acknowledging that it is a new story.

              Female fashion changes are sudden, and a result of distributed consensus, but everyone can see a fashion change and everyone points at the fashion leaders who were influential. When the Cathedral changes line, the change is not only abrupt, but conspiratorial. Every single academic in the entire American empire claims that they always thought what they now think. Every single one. That yesterday they thought the opposite goes down the memory hole, while with a new women’s fashion, every woman says “Look what I am wearing now.

              There is not a single article in the literature that acknowledges that the line changed on Lamarck, and when I bearded an individual academic on the topic, he would not acknowledge it either.

              There is not one academic discussing the matter who will say “Well we used to think X, then suddenly everyone thought Y, but now some people are saying X again.”

              • Karl says:

                Progessives are always toeing the party line, unless they are trying to be to the left of the party line. Admitting to a change if opnion implies that one has been wrong before. That is somewhat enbarassing, especially for progressives. So it is not done. For progessives it is always year zero and they are used to the fact that some thing must not be mentioned.

                So I do not think that central command and control is necessary to prevent progressives from admitting the story has changed.

                Moreover, how could central command work? Sure, some key people could be ordered that they are to tell a new story and if they do not obey they are punished. But then why does even un unimpotant junior progressive also change his story and forget he ever had a different opinion? Difficult to assume such perfect control that even the junior progressives are ordered and coerced to obey. Much easier to assume that progessives are conformist by nature and change their opinion with their environment.

                Then any influential person might succeed changing public opinion. It is very much like fashion, but with the difference that noone will acknowledge where the opinion came from because everyone pretends that he always had that opinion

                • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

                  >Moreover, how could central command work?

                  How else do you think commands are issued in a theocracy? Through the preachers, of course. The same op-ed in the NYT is copied in ten thousand other letterheads.

                  And where do preachers get their sermons from? Some, many, make them up themselves of course, but where do they get the idea in the first place? By what criteria do the vicars allow this preacher but not that preacher to proselytize their message on their platforms, to begin with?

                • Karl says:

                  Pseudo-Chrystom, what you describe is influence. The op-ed might work to change public opinion or it might fail. Many influential groups can issue such commands, but none of them reliably prevails. Otherwise, we’d already have a Stalin controlling everything.

                  Either there are different groups inside the cathedral that are competing for control or there is only one central command. If there are different groups, noone is in control until a Stalin takes control. If there is just one group, then the leader of that group is in control, like Stalin and he can crush anyone who tries to take control from him. If There is a Stalin, there is no further drift to ever more crazy left. I still see ever more progressivism, don’t you?

                • jim says:

                  The leader of that one group is not in control. That is not how priests organize. That is how warriors, and to a lesser extent, merchants, organize.

                  The leader of that group is riding the tiger, and until 1936 or so Stalin also was riding the tiger.

                • The Cominator says:

                  The orders are probably issued by representatives of the security state to the “owners” or commanding managers of big media outlets and big techs. The outlet owners then give orders to their subordinates. It works via influence from NYT CNN and WaPo sometimes but other times more direct orders on narratives are given to.

                  We’ve seen this happen, Conrad Black and Zuckerberg initially told the people who gave them their marching orders to go fuck themselves, then things happened to them. Black remained defiant and despite his wealth connections and being a peer of the realm he ended up in jail on a minor paperwork technicality.

                  Your argument would work for Trannyism, but progressives acknowledge the story on trannyism has changed. Maybe the progressive you are talking to believes he always had the right opinion, but will forcefully say that lots of people used to have the wrong opinion. Now we are smarter, wiser, and more virtuous he tells you.

                  Your argument does not work for Lamarck. That ever single academic everywhere in the English speaking world fell into line instantly and uniformly and firmly believed we have always been at war with Eastasia, that the change was, and still is, unmentionable even though it has kept on changing, fails to fit your model..

            • The Cominator says:

              I don’t believe a bunch of seperate organizations are like a school of fish, they lack physical proximity and your dealing with distinct compartments of priests. Sometimes you’re even dealing with foreign media (media in different country).

              I can give evidence against school of fish and for command and control, Conrad Black and Mark Zuckerberg. Neither of whom wanted to tow the Cathedral party line and wanted to run their own companies as independent fiefdoms for profit (and in Conrad Black’s case because he thought the Cathedral narrative was insane and wanted his papers to tell their own narrative). Things happened to them.

              I obviously can’t prove school of fish false completely and I can’t prove where the command and control is, but I believe in command and control at the higher levels not school of fish.

          • Yul Bornhold says:

            Can’t think of any narratives that turned on a dime, though, admittedly, I don’t listen closely to Cathedral propaganda.

            Trump appeared in the election of 2015. Previously apolitical, he ran in the hated redneck party. To make matters worse, he openly denied the holiness of immigrants and Muslims, which the cuckservative candidates did not. Orange man radiated “enemy” signals to Cathedral receptors. Of course it hated him. The cells of the Cathedral, the professors, the reporters, the teachers, the normies, all *believe* in the elections and the elected government. They don’t understand the real government is the agencies. They thought he was going to take over the real government. They thought themselves existentially threatened. How could they not go 24/7 orange man bad?

            Zuckerberg was converged to the 24/7 orange man bad campaign. He couldn’t help it any more than all the businesses which fly the fag flag. The Cathedral is a river. He got in its path and he was swept downstream. Don’t see any need to ascribe it to a central and rational intelligence.

    • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

      Feminism always had a strong puritan streak to it. ‘Sex positive feminism’ is still too close to a litany of things the gnostically-minded hates, like allowing anything in the market that might satisfy the tastes of men.

      Happenstances such as this are basically the ‘destroy beauty standards’ fat genderfluid blob faction triumphing over the others.

      • The Cominator says:

        Radfems (the Cathedral backed faction at least since the 1980s) are a bunch of man hating dykes who view anything sex industry as a tool of muh patriarchy. In a weird way with true whores they are right, the more open competition regular women face from true whores the better they would be as compared to current circumstances. But I don’t consider camgirls real useful whores…

        The sex positive libfems tend to be a bunch of amiable whores and nymphomaniacs (actually self identified women of this type tend to be amiable and not fat or unattractive either, before I learned there was two different types of feminist I was generally shocked when these type of women said they were a feminist because they are night and day from the other type). I think they dislike muh patriarchy mainly because they like having the ability to cuck their boyfriend at will.

    • Fëanor says:

      At least some part of it is lobster-boiling of the simps to see how small a crumb they’ll buy. First they replaced actual whores with porn, now they’re getting rid of porn too. I suspect, though, that the “men” who are responsible for most of these whores’ income aren’t going anywhere. IIRC, Belle Delphine actually lost subscribers when she started going hardcore porn.

    • notglowing says:

      Something a lot of people discussing this are missing is that they are not banning *pornography* at least for now, they are banning *sexual acts* on their platform.
      That was the language, and nudes are still allowed.
      I haven’t used OnlyFans, but from what I know about the websites it was mostly girls selling pictures of themselves, some nude, some just risqué.
      I would not be surprised if hardcore porn is much less common than that.

      There’s a lot of that elsewhere on the internet, but the reason why this site had such success both with girls and simps, is that it wasn’t quite that far, and allowed the men to have this kind of parasocial relationship with them. For the girls, it didn’t feel like they were whoring themselves out since it isn’t straight up porn.

      It’s different if they have sex on camera, just like simps freak out if e-girls have boyfriends.

    • Nicodemus Rex says:

      OnlyFans was a way for whores to make money off simps easily without fucking them. Now its a way for whores to make money off simps without fucking them or fucking *anyone* (but they can still be nude of course). Shouldn’t be surprising.

      • Alfred says:

        I’ve never used any fans, but I’m assuming the real money is with their streaming stuff similar to Chaturbate, IE lots of sex toys pretending to get off due to the men sending money and texts.

        This article bears that out somewhat:

        https://metro.co.uk/2020/06/10/realistic-guide-onlyfans-people-who-sell-pictures-platform-12825718/

        With Chaturbate the most popular rooms are are all solo shows, men want to pretend they’re the ones fucking her and having another man fuck her is a buzz kill. Most porn is shot to avoid showing the man’s face as much as possible in order for men to pretend the are the guy doing the fucking. As such, it’s more interactive than porn which is probably the big appeal. Nude pics isn’t going to cut it.

          My point is that this is Thoughtcrime-level stuff. Top floor. Red phone. The final boss.

          Cathedral vociferously denies that these desires, in both men and women, even exist at all, and thought until recently that it had Predator drones and working nukes to make sure that no one noticed the truth. But these are the very desires that the Taliban is trolling us with right now. Or maybe ourguys pretending to be Taliban. Who cares.

          The memes that work point to the truth.

          So Cathedral will need to censor the shit out of them, but also won’t be able to, because Brown Man Good, and especially Brown Man who Wins. It’s all about awakening real and honest desire, in an uncensorable way.

    Kabul is not like the of the fall of Saigon. It’s more profound, more “off axis”, more Thoughtcrimey.

    Saigon was the Cathedral’s/Blue Empire’s “good guys” winning, plain and simple. “The Commies were rough around the edges but their hearts were in the right place.” Like Castro & Che or the Khmer Rouge.

    Kabul is different. Neither Blue Empire nor Red Empire claimed the Taliban. They’re not even the “bad guys” anymore because they won. They blew up the game and changed it to a different sport entirely.

    • ExileStyle says:

      My sense is that the ideological shift since ’75 has been deeper and more fundamental than that. Back then, the press still (nominally at least) cared about the Silent Majority and what it thought about the world. Most of the mid-career men writing in the newspapers had grown up on a diet of anti-communism, whether of the Eisenhower or Kennedy variety. The Critical Theory or “New Left” people who started colonizing the universities around the time Saigon fell (who have in turn trained our generation of mid-career journalists) were and are as opposed to old-school leftism as they were to old-school rightism (because Old bad, New good), neither of which cared at all or even ever thought about “justice” for people who were not working men with families, or men who wanted families.

      What we are seeing now is rather the complete burying of that old generation, and its replacement by New Left Thought (and its blowback, Us). Their work in undermining (allegedly) universally-acknowledged political standards has ironically led to half of the Western world looking on in sympathy at the Taliban, with the other (New Left) half unable to say anything because “vive le différence,” cultural respect, etc. (and some souls such as myself just straight up rooting for them, because they’re men acting honorably and with remarkable self-control in a world historical moment).

      That’s also kind of a white pill thing as I see it. All of this hysterical respect for “differences” (best seen in western tranny worship) means that no one really cares about Afghan women anymore, or is even allowed to care, lest they appear Islamophobic, or worse, admit that women are different than men, or that brown is different than white, or Islam different than any other way of seeing the world.

                  We need a religion before we can fight a holywar.

                  I share those doubts, but it seems to me that the problem is not necessarily the lack of a unifying religion. Granted, a shared religion is necessary to fight a holywar, and holywar allowed the Taliban to create regime change. But the Nazis did not require a new religion to do so. They just needed a replacement state. As Hitler later said:

                  it is not enough to overthrow the old State, but that the new State must previously have been built up and be practically ready to one’s hand. … In 1933 it was no longer a question of overthrowing a state by an act of violence; meanwhile the new State had been built up and all that there remained to do was to destroy the last remnants of the old State — and that took but a few hours.

                  It seems to me that as USG becomes more and more dysfunctional, some new state would be able to step in. The question is, what would that new state be? And how could one be formed without FBI entryism? Maybe there will just be secession and the governors of Texas, Florida, and Alaska will lead the new States?

                  The Nazis were just the usual. Movement ever further left, resulting in dictatorship. The dictator sees that continued movement left will kill him, puts an end to it. Same story as all of the others.

                  The Nazis were just the next move even further left, until the night of the long knives, and everyone saw them as movement ever further left.

                  Everyone on the left figured that movement ever further left would continue forever, and positioned themselves to ride the next movement even further left into power. But Hitler had other ideas. Same as always.

                  Right now we are in a phase that corresponds to the constitutional monarchist phase of the Russian and French Revolutions or the last days of Weimar. It will not last. Things will take a turn for the considerably worse quite soon.

I think the staffers do, the think tanks do, the bureau and administration chiefs do, the DNC/RNC donor class and bureaucrats do.

                  Normalcy bias.

                  What always happens is that the group with the best cohesion, the crazies, makes deals with each of the other groups, which deals consist of each group shafting all of the others, except the crazies. And then they all get shafted, except the crazies.

                  If this goes all the way, each of the groups you list is going to die. And it is not going to stop until one man seizes absolute power and stops it.

                  And the further it goes, the deadlier the means that that man will need to use. And if he is a true believer, he is not going to stop it.

It is some kind of emergent political principle, or principles, that is ubiquitous in all late-stage materialist oligarchies, clerical or otherwise. No one is in control and there are far too many people who could be. Imagine there is a room with 10 locked doors in a hidden location. Inside is a lifetime fortune for 100 people.

It looks good on paper until you realize that PLA only have J-15 (chinese bootleg SU-27), 27 units or so of china’s original SU-27 is not carrier spec’ed, J-18 and J-20 (bootleg F-22/F-35) is not ready for production.

                So in short, PLA has very expensive sitting duck target slated to roam south china sea with Allies roaming around.

                • Kunning Drueger says:

                  China absolutely needs a global fleet if it wants to maintain its globalized economy. As it stands now, China is completely reliant on the US and others keeping trade lanes open and safe. If the US stopped guaranteeing the high seas trade network, piracy on a level unprecedented in the modern era would explode almost overnight. This would be amazing, especially if BAP is not just a talker but a Doer.

                  The discussion about aircraft carriers and their efficacy is always so strange. They clearly matter to many governments. They clearly have usefulness in extending the threat and application of force. We don’t know how they will perform in a defensive capacity in the Advanced Jet Age (probably not well), but as it stands, the main reason the US is relevant on the world stage is the blue water navy.

                  PLAN just ran an exercise with a 10,000 ton class civilian landing ship. I don’t know if it was a RO/RO or something like that, but it is purportedly the first time they’ve drilled with something that big. It is quite obvious that they are just rattling Taipei’s cage, but if they ever do want to perform amphibious operations, their impressive shore based arsenal isn’t going to cover that effectively. So the question is, from my perspective, does China want to project force outside of their core and proximal periphery? The answer to that, again from my perspective, is does China want to maintain the trade status quo? These are, in effect, the same question. China doesn’t have to answer it yet as the US Navy is still actively guaranteeing global maritime trade. But they planned carriers seems to indicate that yes, they do want to project force because yes they do want to maintain global Chinese trade and they think the US cannot or will not continue to be the guarantor.

                • jim says:

                  > China absolutely needs a global fleet if it wants to maintain its globalized economy.

                  No it does not. China needs the crossroads of central Asia, Afghanistan, open for business. (Keeping Afghanistan closed was the one small shred of sanity in our Afghan war. As long as Afghanistan is closed, America holds the leverage of the threat of shutting down Chinese trade.)

                  China is at present keeping the seas open by bribing our hopelessly corrupt and disunited political elite. This is far cheaper than aircraft carriers, but it is a lot more fragile than aircraft carriers. They are too corrupt to stay bribed.

                  However, the modern solution, which China is working on, is not aircraft carriers, but hypersonic missiles, which make aircraft carriers obsolete. And China has, or appears to have, long range hypersonic anti carrier missiles, which America does not.

                  What is really needed is long range hypersonics with a relatively small and rapidly re-usable boost vehicle, so that you can shoot and shoot and keep on shooting. That, at present, no one has. If the Cathedral shuts down Musk, he may well have another customer.

                  At present Chinese boosters seem to be fueled by dinitrogen tetroxide and udmh, which is not what you want if you want to launch one hell of a lot of hypersonic missiles using re-usable boosters.

    • Kunning Drueger says:

      Taiwan is a tough nut to crack regardless of American involvement. If China invades in a traditional method, the losses would be atrocious just getting to the coast. Then they’d have to occupy the island and pacify resistance. They’d have to balance losses at home as well as external probing by competitors. I think they’d avoid this if possible. It might be better to foment a civil war then sweep on to “restore order,” but even that would be tricky.

The assistant would have to be personally alpha to them regardless of his formal position, and these days alpha male engineers as women perceive alpha are in short supply. Women like the art harem solution, but HR does not.

                  What you are asking for is an “engineer” of the correct race, sex, and sexual preference, who is in on the red pill conspiracy. But since the red pill conspiracy is unspoken, or spoken only as significant silences and exaggerated facial expressions, it is hard to organize even among straight white males.

                  It is kind of hard to run an engineering project as a revolutionary plot against the regime, though these days any successful engineering plot is run as a revolutionary plot against the regime.

        The current Chinese strategy is to slowly escalate the military pressure while pursuing a “peaceful” solution in which Taiwan “voluntarily” accepts a one China policy. Basically the same policy as the EUs “ever closer” (and ever less democratic and ever more centralized) union. Takes a while, but that way they get Taiwan intact, rather than ruined.

        Or it would be the EU strategy if they could defeat a band of boy scouts. The EU’s hilarious performance during the breakup of Yugoslavia and the similarly amusing performance of the British in Basra gives me optimism that a relatively small band of Amerikaners will soon be able to defeat the Pentagon. But right now, no way.

The ending is already decided, and all that is in question is how much damage they can do beforehand. Probably a lot, because America’s elites are either gullible or not gullible but wish to harm America.

            You speak confidently of matters of which you know nothing. No one wants ethnic replacement – it is always a plot by treasonous elites against the near enemy, their own people.

            China is an empire, and is dominated by a particular ethnic group, and within that ethnic group, an ethnic subgroup. China is multiracial, as empires tend to be, and the ethnic groups in other places, let alone the ruling elites in other places, have no desire for domination by ethnic group dominant within China. A policy of ethnic replacement always hopes to import inferior people incapable of functioning as members of the elite. One of the ethnic groups inside present day China, the minority with which I am most familiar, has Chinese faces, but bigger and less childlike faces, and are about white size and strength. They are also better at the kinds of engineering that most Chinese engineers are not very good at. That group is very pissed with dominant ethnic group.

                  According to various Korean and Japanese friends, ignoring small regional minorities there are the Northern and Southern Chinese. The Northern Chinese are descended mainly from the Jurchens and to a lesser extent the Mongols and are tall and handsome, while the Southern Chinese tend to be shorter, ruddier and more neotenous. The Southern Chinese have a reputation among Koreans and Japanese of being dirty and gross. My uncle visited China in the 80s before Deng and he said the wet-market he visited in Guangzhou was the most disgusting thing he ever saw. The heavy intermarriage between the Manchu and Han peoples were enough to eliminate a formal ethnic distinction but not an informal one.

For example, how gay marriage is “downstream” of the fact that gays, today, can find you after work and straight beat you up, while everyone watches, and then walk away and get away with it (and muslims, and negroes, etc.):

    “It’s ridiculous, and ideas that ridiculous can only be imposed by force, only with armed men at gunpoint. The moment these ideas are not mandatory — the second the troops withdraw, in fact — people tend to revert to the lives they prefer to live. That may be the real lesson of Afghanistan.”

      The most effective violence occurs at the point of maximum plausible deniability, but with a hint of potential legitimacy. The Taliban can get away with guerilla warfare because that’s what’s normal in the third world, with the only restriction being one cannot get away with outright genocide. Usually.

      In the first world, the violent sweet spot is usually based on threatening children with bad grades in school if they don’t obey the Cathedral, and that this would affect their ability to secure a career that could provide for a family. Rural bubbas thinking they could play Taliban, or street theater, completely miss this sweet spot and their attempts at political violence are suppressed laughably. But professors are absolutely feared, or at least were…

      American decline isn’t a result of the bubbas doing anything right or wrong. It’s a result of the loss of leftist violence with that ideal mix of credibility and deniability, the power of grading in school. So much of GenX and Millennials are un/der/employed at least compared to Boomers, despite being the best educated generations in history, that GenZ is no longer intimidated by the school power. They don’t care about COVID either because they’re still young and invincible. And they grew up completely with the internet and smart phones.

        Nuts

        No one cares about school grades. The left does not care, because they know school grades are blatantly fake, and conservatives care that they are blatantly fake, but correspondingly pay no attention to them when hiring.

        The left burns cities, the left videotapes and widely publishes attempted murder, and you are talking about school grades?

        School grades are a reflection of the power of the left, not the source of its power. The source of its power is state violence and nominally private, but state approved violence, as we saw in the Stonewall riots and burning of Kenosha.

        Mao said power comes from a gun. In America, it comes from breaking heads, but they are starting to use guns. Been a lot of Epstein’s lately.

        It is not the grades that matter, it is essay topics where one has to affirm loyalty to Globohomo. You don’t get into a good university without writing suitably pious essays and a history of leftist activism, though the best university entrance high schools have organized clubs for faking up a history of pious left wing activism.

        The top universities pretend to still care about school grades, but every day the pretense gets thinner.

        Grades are like the rituals the monasteries were supposedly conducting before the dissolution of the monasteries. Supposedly shifts of monks kept the rituals going 24/7 to keep their minds focused on the God and the next world, but after a while, no one was bothering to show up.

          Jim, was there ever a period where getting into and graduating from good universities was a reflection of actual intelligence and competence, or were they always just mere indoctrination centers for whatever current year leftism was at the time?

          • jim says:

            Universities were always, and should always be, indoctrination centers, should be run directly by the official Church, and always have been run directly by the official Church. The path to skilled jobs used to be, and should be, apprenticeship. A University degree should only be for state and quasi state jobs where loyalty to the official state religion matters.

            But to 1875 they doing their best to recruit the very smartest people. After 1875, their focus on recruiting smart people began to decline. Until quite recently, a university degree was an indication of intelligence and competence. This became significantly and seriously less true around 1975, though the rot set in far earlier. But after 1975 it started to become a serious problem, which problem has been getting steadily and rapidly worse.

          Re. “A bolt of lightning”

          I’ve actually thought about using a stimulated bolt of lighting as an assassination method.

          Assuming your target is in the vicinity of a thunderstorm.

          1. Fly a high altitude drone above the target.
          2. Shoot a UV laser at the target.
          3. At the same time shoot a rotating UV laser into the thunderstorm.

          The UV laser ionizes the air forming a higher conductance path for static discharge.

          • jim says:

            I think it would take a remarkably powerful laser to get enough ionization all the way up and all the way down. An ionizing UV laser does not penetrate air very far at all, and weighs as much as a small truck. You are looking at an eximer laser, and those things are big. And big though they are, they still don’t penetrate air very far at all.

            • Cloudswrest says:

              I would think you don’t have to cause much ionization. Even a little bit will cause lighting to start to send feeders causing positive feedback.

              • jim says:

                The problem is that UV frequencies capable of causing ionization cause a lot of ionization, with the result that the beam is stopped by a few inches of air.

                To get just a little bit of ionization, you need high X ray frequencies, which lasers cannot do, or a relativistic electron beam. (Which requires a building sized generator, and can only be rendered mobile by an aircraft carrier sized ship)

            Frying someone with an electrolaser already looks a lot like a lightning strike. You could perhaps drone them during a thunderstorm for ‘what a coincidence’, but not necessarily an express necessity.

            In any case though there is a lot of cool shit that could potentially be done, but can’t enter the realm of possibility until USG stops artificially preventing human civilization from advancing to the next step on the Kardashev scale by making 60 year old technology illegal (man scale nuclear drivers for machinery).

            I grew up in a homeschooling group who had a very large christen family(9 kids). They were super traditional but they sent their girls to college. They have zero grandchildren. Everyone got married but no children were produced from the marriages as all the women involved couldn’t be bothered with children.

          The churches in the Anglo-sphere under the omophorion of the Patriarch of Moscow are generally solid. With parishes under other jurisdictions, it is very much hit and miss.

I will not be surprised at a reunion between Constantinople and Rome in the next ten or twenty years, which will cause a schism within Orthodoxy that will make the ecclesiastical crisis in Ukraine look trivial.

Then they get sick and some of the branches start losing bark and getting bare while others are still healthy. Then the tree dies and stands there for a few more years while the beetles hollow it out. THEN it falls over.
