Jews in Particular Need to Smoke

Nicotine is an anti-neurotic.
It's medicinal for many. "Costs ten years of my life and thousands upon thousands of dollars? ...yeah, worth it." Whether you're neurotic because of trauma or because you have a case of the Hebrews, it can be robustly helpful.

Does it even truly cost that much lifespan? More likely, neurotics don't live long in the first place. Base rate fallacy. Yeah it's not good for you but it's not that bad. Regardless, folk who get addicted to it are psychologically addicted, not physiologically.

Fascism hates smoking because it is a terrorism regime. Hates it when folk go all 'meh' to its panic-mongering. Intent matters. 

Some Jews have this blink where they scrunch up their whole face. It's because they're so neurotic they wince at life in general. "I exist! Ow!"

Sadistic Psychopathy is Normal

Of course demons are going to pretend to be angels. 

If two demons gang up on a lone demon, the gang wins. If four demons gang up on the pair, the squad wins. Hence, Darwin selects for some level of cooperation. However, the primary purpose of life, for all demons, is to defect. They want to be a criminal, and if they don't get to be a criminal to someone, they are unsatisfied.

The difference between a "normal" human and a psychopath is that a limiter is missing. What you're seeing is a normal human with a casing off; with the circuitry laid bare. 

At most 5% of humanity are bizarre mutants who are missing the defection drive. 95% are psychopaths who are being forced by their meat to have some minimal appreciation for cooperation. Or rather, 93% are being forced, and ~2% or whatever are missing that part and run wild.

Demons are going to pretend to be angels; if you take things at face value, all you'll ever see is a bunch of angels.


Intent matters. Little but intent matters, in the end. The market will provide. It will sum human demand, which is human intent, which is human value. Humanity per se gets the world they in sum want to buy and are willing to pay for.

This is why providing a common foe makes humans so happy. It satisfies their core value of beating somebody up.

This is why humans are sectarian. If you mange to win a war properly, then they run out of victims. They have to break up so they have somebody to attack. Outfighting is better, sure, but infighting beats a state of peace every time. 

Losing sucks, but it's better than having to get along. The opportunity to win, as opposed to merely prosper, is always too tempting to pass up, no matter how bad the odds or how pyrrhic the victory.

This is why it seems nobody can make a voluntary, cooperative, white government. The chance to enshrine your bullying into law is simply too tempting. That's it, that's the thing everyone wants: to beat up the majority as a minority, ideally as a minority of one. They want to see the world as abundant. Abundant in victims, that is. 

You can't have a world government because it would immediately split into two and start a war with itself. Unity is only useful instrumentally as a means to beat up someone you're not united with. 

This is why Fascists are obsessed with appearances. If they can force you, too, to be obsessed with appearances, via social pressure and unconscious mimicry, then you might be fooled by their angel camouflage. Ideally, despite continuing to victimize you.  

Secularism is popular because denying that spirituality is real lets you deny consciousness is real which lets you deny intent is real, thus assists in hiding the fact the world is shit because they intend for it to be shit.

This is why humans make shit parents. They're forced by their meat to take certain steps to protect their ongoing genes, but ultimately they're ecstatic to have someone small and weak to victimize. If you can't be the black government and beat up the whole country, you can at least be a parent and beat up your kid.
This is why public school; most parents are cowards and are scared of someone calling them on their abusive behaviour. Much safer to hire someone to beat up your kid on your behalf. Not quite as satisfying as doing it personally, but worth the trade.

This is also why parents always instantly explode if you try to criticize their parenting. "Yeah no shit I'm a bad parent. I'm doing it on purpose." They have something to hide. They can't defend their choices. They have to prevent you from trying to attack, via overwhelming violence.
All the other parents are equally shit and will pre-emptively defend each other. Parents understand that if they don't speak up now, nobody will speak for them when you get around to coming for them.

That's why everyone wants to be immortal. If you're immortal you don't have to protect your kids anymore. It's fine if they all die from excessive brutality.
For the tiny minority that genuinely likes their children, immortality isn't a big deal. 

"Women are evil. Pandora. Eve." Sexual selection goes both ways, brotha. If you didn't want evil daughters all you had to do is marry the less-evil wives. You didn't.
What's actually going on: women are lesser and thus held to a lower standard. They don't have to hide how evil they are. Elegance is prized in women precisely because by default they're quite clumsy, and the contrast between expectation and reality is striking. Since they're clumsy, they accidentally reveal the normal depravity that men take pains to hide, and since they're held to a lower standard, nobody minds.
Ultimately, women only need to cooperate at all with their children and a few other neighbourhood mothers. (Their husbands can force cooperation, and generally have to if they want to see any.) Successful men have to cooperate with a much wider circle of casual acquaintances and can't get away with being so openly or impulsively destructive.
What is the red pill shit test? "I am too destructive to successfully raise children unless you force me not to be. Are you man enough to stop me from killing my own kids?" Shit tests are annoying because initiating one is disqualifying. You don't like them because they're bad. However, you'll be looking a very long time if you don't put up with the disqualification.

Modern innovations in soft abuse have delighted everyone. If you abuse your kids by depriving them of food, it's too obvious. What if instead you abuse them by giving them too much food? What if you abuse them by giving them all the candy they clamour for? What if you abuse them not by hitting them too much, but by providing no structure at all? Same result, but you look better doing it. Only didn't happen sooner because it costs an extra layer of thinking. It's "civilized" abuse, resulting from socialization, not instinct.

This is why most normal humans say a government is "necessary" to keep them in line. "Yes, I would commit all sorts of crime if a bigger bully didn't force me not to on pain of death, and so would everyone I know." They're not completely wrong.
Of course this means the biggest criminals will take over the government and make it even worse. Precisely because everyone is indeed all psychopathic criminals, they wouldn't take the disorganized crime lying down. Organized crime, such as black government, is inherently worse.
This seems worthwhile to them because it creates the opportunity, no matter how unlikely, for them to seize the government and personally be the biggest bully...

This is why population growth is bad. Children with bigger bullies as parents, who would otherwise die due to the artificial deprivation, survive. Likewise, bigger adult bullies, who would otherwise fail to find a big enough gang to cooperate with due to being so repulsive, breed successfully anyway.
This is why population "decline" is good. This is why birth control is good. Ultimately parents attack their kids because they hate them. Intent matters, and it feeds back. E.g. peasants, although clueless and ignorant, do eventually work out that they don't want to have kids and thus, given the option, don't. The longer "decline" goes on, the stronger the selection for parents who actually like kids and want to support them.

You can see other great apes are basically evil too. They engage in wholly unnecessary torture all the time. There's no survival benefit; they just like doing it. Almost the entire primate order is a shithole.

Were Speakeasies Part of the Government?

Or were Americans significantly less cowardly before FDR?

Imagine a modern speakeasy. Literally about speaking; you're banned for not using racial slurs, and gays and women aren't allowed. Obviously the government will instantly find and vaporize this establishment.

What's so different in the 1920s? Were Americans not snitches? Is there a trick to keeping it on the down low, which they weren't too afraid to find and use? Or were they de-facto government sponsored?

Just World by Caste

If you give a coward his own battalion, he will only die on the battlefield.
If you refuse to give a great warrior an army, he will merely raise his own.

If you give a poor person a bunch of money, they don't become rich. They just spend it all.
If you take away a billionaire's money, they just earn it all back. 

If you give a stupid person a bunch of education, that only gives them more to foolishly forget.
If you try to withhold information from a true scholar, he will become wise just to spite you. 

Genius that's worth cultivating doesn't need to be cultivated. You can only repress it through devilish luck or extraordinary effort.
Genius that needs to be cultivated is, by and large, not genius. You have found a pig you want to put lipstick on. 

The question is not about potential, it's about whether you want your geniuses to contribute to your society or to oppose and exploit it.

Army Bullets Smol

Well I feel dumb.
Stupidly obvious reason military ammo is smaller than civilian ammo: it's lighter, you can carry more individual rounds. 

Turns out it's a good idea for other reasons as well, but IMO the above one cinches it all on its own.

Original Cringe

Cringey clown world obtains because all the countries are full of cringe people. 

The term "sin" glorifies what's wrong far too much. Even calling it a sin is itself thing-often-called a sin, the thing-often-called-a-sin of pride. It's too lame to be called a mistake; it can't harm a fly. You're not upsetting god, you're only embarrassing yourself. Even calling this "rebellion" a toddler tantrum gives it more respect than it deserves. The toddler really means it and doesn't know any better.

Lost Art: Enamel

This is done in glass. Functionally artificial gemstones, meaning durable and easy to clean. Difficult or impossible for the colours to fade. You could theoretically eat off this plate daily without undue hassle. 

I particularly enjoy the creative expressions, the shading, and the fact they clearly didn't suffer from prudery. 

If you want a less whimsical take, here you go.

Imagine not being too poor to afford nice plates.

Wikipedia Broke Down and Confessed Democracy = Sophism

"The historical context provides evidence for their considerable influence, as Athens became more and more democratic during the period in which the sophists were most active."

You may be asking, "Hey Alrenous, why is America administered by a bunch of lawyers?" I'm glad you asked.
Quote: "the sophists were the first lawyers in the world." There you go!


The Left consistently ruins its own reputation and has to shed its old labels and adopt new fake labels. Almost like a lawyer or a sophist or something.

The term "Sophist" was one of the first victims of this dynamic.
"Through works such as these, sophists were portrayed as "specious" or "deceptive", hence the modern meaning of the term."

I remain somewhat puzzled by the way everyone just lets them get away with it. Never forget, DNC = Sophist = Communist = etc etc.
Even in recent times, progressive => liberal => neoliberal => woke... Bruh, this is the most transparent ploy. Call them on it already.

Literally, "Sophist" translates as "wisdomist." In other words, never mind changing their spots and getting away with pretending the leopard underneath has changed, why weren't Sophists laughed out of town at first sight? "Hello, we are the incarnations of Hubris." Indeed you are, indeed you are. 

Imagine I founded the Virtuous Paragons tomorrow and everyone just took me seriously. Big WTF from me, fam. Shit, why don't I unironically found the We're Better Than You club. 


If you want to go digging through the old article versions, you can find the one where they straight denied that Sophists caused democracy, but it smelled so viciously of [the lady doth protest too much] they had to stop. Background: Wikipedia is a terrible liar. When they try to hide things, it almost always merely becomes highlighted...
Turns out you can't exactly hire a top shelf Sophist for $0 per hour. It's all wannabees. Excepting of course the numerous edits that happen to come out of DC, particularly Foggy Bottom. Almost as if they're being paid tax dollars to muddy Wikipedia or something. They seem to focus on celebrities, politics, and religion (but I repeat myself), so outside those areas it's fine.

New Feminism Take

What if these women are ashamed of being so weak, so they pretend to be strong to hide from their own shame? They think their men deserve women who don't hold them back so much, but Christianity did them dirty and told them there was no way for women to invigorate their wills, so they have no choice but to turn to delusion.

Fat Control Mastery

Rectification: you don't want to lose "weight" you want to lose fat, especially low-density fats made out of fructose. 

I have mastered weight control but it seems I never actually wrote it down.

Step 1: saturated fats control hunger; a full red-meat-based diet results in essentially no hunger whatsoever. Though you can also just throw some lard on rice or whatever.

Step 2: fasting.
Don't limit calories, eliminate them. Go 48+ hours without eating. Result: fat reduction. Not a result: significant discomfort. For me it results in low energy, but it's not uncomfortable. Indeed can easily go long enough that I get too tired to cook...

Losing weight after saturated-fat satiety is so easy that it doesn't matter at all if you gain it back later. Try not to yo-yo excessively, I guess.

Calorie restriction is weird and bad for you. If you eat, eat until you're full. Maybe don't stuff yourself? However, if you give it a few minutes and you're still hungry, keep going. Calorie elimination is normal and good for you. Indeed if you have a cut or scrape, try not eating for a few days to accelerate the wound-closing process.

Vegetables are for spice, not nutrients. Meat provides everything you need.
You don't get tired of meat any more than you get tired of air. You get tired of herbivorous dishes precisely because they don't provide everything you need and should only be eaten occasionally or by necessity.

Since Tattoos are Fear, Women Can Have Them

You get a tattoo when you're afraid of something. Since there's nothing wrong with women being cowards, some subset of tattoos are fine on women, ironically enough.

No gotcha man, I'm not advocating for tramp stamps. I don't care to define it exactly because I don't own tattooing and as such ultimately my opinion doesn't matter. 

If nothing else, getting a tattoo says you're aesthetically inferior and require improvement. Women shouldn't think that, but asking them to stop is a big ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ and hence ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ all 360 degrees around.

Point of Order: Not Transgressive

The Regressive Inquisition likes to portray itself as transgressive and iconoclastic. This is pure nonsense. 

It was always, since 1776 at the absolute latest, only agitating for its own norms instead of yours. It is iconoclastic against outgroup icons. It is transgressive because its boundaries run across the grain of yours. In other words it's a totally normal monkey troupe doing normal monkey-screeching. (Except slightly more insane than usual, and using a parasite strategy where they camouflage themselves as outgroup.) 

If you look at the "transgressive" things it did in like the 60s, it's the same "transgressive" things it wants to do now. I'm looking particularly at Star Trek; it "transgressively" had a black woman / white man pairing. Sixty years later, they're still hitting the same Revolution drum. If you trace it back further, you will find none of the "forward" thinkers are anything except standard, quotidian, and ancient thinkers, but with a dose of opposite-day.

It was stale on day 1 and at ground 0; it only saw success because its opponents were even worse. 

(So, hint: don't deserve it, and you'll be fine.) 

I will double down: actually it's not iconoclastic or transgressive even in a relative sense. 

Communism's true colour is a bipartisan purple.

The reason the Regressive Inquisition "camouflages" itself as the outgroup is because it was always outgroup. It merely took (some of) the outgroup's reasoning to the logical conclusion, instead of stopping on some unprincipled exception or another. The differences between this ingroup and this outgroup are more cosmetic than essential. 

The Regressive Inquisition casts down the idols that its own host population considers to be false. Sure these idols did little things like prevent poverty and death, but who cares about that? Are you saying you put material comforts above faith in God? Shame on you. Why shouldn't we slay anyone not willing to die for THE LORD? Without the "good" word they will only go on to sin again - we're just helping them avoid a descent into total depravity! Look, guillotining a sinner hurts them more than it hurts you. It's self-sacrifice; they have to go on living in this vale of tears, whereas you are excused. 

It's the conservative right that's transgressive, not the liberal left. They keep wanting to, you know, not-guillotine sinners and foreigners (but I repeat myself). Sometimes they suggest not stealing things that aren't even nailed down! Only sometimes, but still! What heretics! Don't you know a rich man can't fit through the eye of a needle?

You can always tell you have a great cult going when the god is more interested in your willingness to die for it than in keeping you alive. Yeah, er, sign me up. Definitely not deviant at all. The point of the heavens is to defect on its own worshippers, right?

The only reason the Regressive Inquistion looks like outgroup to ingroup is due to the narcissism of small differences. That one's yarmulke is dyed the wrong black! Burn the witch! Nobody who is genuinely outgroup understands what they're even fighting about. Nobody - not even ingroup - gives a shit whether god is three or god is one, but they do give a shit about having an excuse to beat someone down and kill them if they won't grovel enough. "That one's Communism is mauve rather than cerise! Throw the kulak down the well!"

Und so, here we are.

Anglo vs. Saxon = Roundhead vs. Cavalier

The rest of the world understandably lumps Saxons and Anglos together. They're very similar.

However, they're not similar enough to prevent irreconcilable differences. They constantly clash along Cavalier vs. Roundhead lines. If you live locally, the differences are more than noticeable.

Naturally this is [narcissism of small differences], but since Anglos (not Saxons) conquered the world, their tiny narcissistic shit fits have become relevant to everyone else. It really helps to recognize whether you're dealing with a Whig or a Tory. Foggy Bottom vs. Arlington. Etc etc etc. 

The colonies were Saxon, the Empire was Anglo. Massachusetts is Anglo, Texas is Saxon.

P.S. lmao @ white "race." What particular village your ancestors lived in 300 years ago can make it impossible to get along with someone whose roots wind to a few villages over, even if you're both totally deracinated and have lost your history. Just shake and go your separate ways. Don't try to pretend every European should be or even can be on the same side.

Rescuing Civilization

...from itself. "I can save her!"

Option 1: civilization can be saved.
Option 2: civilization cannot be saved; save yourself. 

The market is smarter than you. There is plenty of demand for saving civilization. If it could be supplied, it would be. E.g. if writing a book was the solution...a book has been written before. It's been tried. 

There is much higher demand for looting and razing civilization. The market is providence, and will provide.

On the contrary, it turns out saving yourself is civilization. Secure your shit and mind your own business. If everyone did this, civilization would have no need of being saved. Since they don't, unless you want to go down with civilization when Gnon has his final words on it, you must adopt the minority position. 

If everyone saves themselves, then, ultimately, it turns out the ship didn't go down in the first place. Everyone is fine. 

The ship is going down precisely because the passengers are poking holes in the hull. If you put them on a lifeboat they will only poke a hole in the lifeboat, because, ultimately, they don't like being afloat. 

Your only options are to save yourself, or go down with them. 

And yes indeed, you can save yourself. It's not even hard. Just steal a lifeboat. They're all over the place; unless you try to steal a luxury lifeboat or something equally retarded, it's very likely they won't even notice it's missing. 

Yeshua's saviour complex is specifically designed to destroy you, so give it up like a drug habit. Put your own oxygen mask on first. Put your own parachute on first. When, inevitably, your "fellow" passengers bat away the mask and the parachute, let them. They want to die, and that's they're right. Aren't you glad you didn't try to put their mask on first? 

Civilization wasn't. It was always barbaric, and never civilized, except by accident. When it was so poor it died when it failed to be civilized, sometimes it was, temporarily and in a limited fashion, civilized. Don't be surprised the boat is sailing to hell. That's what it was consciously, intentionally designed to do from the very start. No wonder everyone who gets on it keeps trying to make it go down; being sunk is what's for.

"Saving" civilization is sinking the boat, because it was a lie from the start. A boat specifically designed to go down. Its telos is to sink. The more you shore it up, the more efficiently it will pass into the briny deep.

How well known is it that Anglo society is based on lying constantly?

Growing up as an Anglo child, you're supposed to intuit that your parents and teachers are constantly lying to you. You're supposed to mimic them and lie right back. Status is judged based on how elegantly you lie. If you have something honest to say you're supposed to bankshot it - tell a lie that's kind of transparent, so basically being tsundere. 

American culture is basically Anglo culture. 

Is this well known? Should I explain this in more detail?
Is this weird occult knowledge, or would I be explaining that the Sun rises in the morning?

Nice Houses & Ambition

Blesséd be those of small ambitions.
Replies good too.

I mean, I like these houses. They're, like, not-boring. Also not-bureaucrat, which is important. Can't really relate to the small ambitions, though. I just know the abstract theory.

Having great ambitions is to be pitied, not admired. A unfortunate blemish of the spirit. 

Though, if you do have them, it's worse to pretend. Fight with all your soul.

Low Friendship Demand => Low Friendship Supply

Friends are under-clustered. Why? - by Ben Southwood

Because you don't value friendship. 

"it’s proximity to job, safe and pretty neighbourhood with good amenities"

Revealed preferences: that is what you value. Your job, then a high-status neighbourhood, in that order.

You don't value friendship, because the State told you not to value friendship. It did this because if you have friends you might care more about what your friends think than about what the State thinks. How disobedient. Render unto Caesar. 

It's nice that the high-A crowd is noticing there's a problem, I suppose, but they will be wholly ineffective at doing anything about it, because peasants aren't lords. "Master master, can I live near my friends?" "No." "....okay...."

NB if cities weren't car-addicted, everyone would live closer merely by default. Maybe you couldn't trivially walk to your friends, but you could drive or take the tram in ~15 or whatever. Have to assume this is by design, that promoting cars was for exactly this purpose, until someone can prove otherwise.

Human Traffick to Martha's Vinyard

Moldbug's "they're totes sincere, for realz" BTFO by one madlad DeSantis 

It's Satanism. Satanists gonna Sate. They're just lying.

Admittedly they're highly convincing, what with all the practice. Cover their tracks well unless you really push the issue, for example. Unless you, you know, have heard of replication. Assume everyone is lying until there's specific proof to the contrary.

New Biden Conspiracy Hypothesis

Biden pissed someone off before the election. He was elected specifically to put him and his crime family into the crosshairs. 

Nobody would pay any attention to some random senator's kid. The Hunter "leak" is all staged - it was a professional op that they "accidentally" let slip to 4chan or whatever. 

Perhaps waited until after ncov so he could take the fall for that too. 2-for-1 deal. 


My first point: America is more corrupt than you can possibly imagine. It's basically impossible to be too cynical about these things.

Second point: you can make some truly outlandish stuff fit with the available facts. If the reality wasn't one flavour of outlandish or another, it would all be ruled out.
They're hiding practically everything because it really does have to be hidden at all costs. You have no idea what happens in lowbrow corporate boardrooms, never mind in DC itself.

"Considered Harmful" vs. Legalized Counterfeiting

When your country legalizes a crime, it doesn't stop being a crime, it merely becomes legal, so it happens more often. 

"The engineering mistake is an accounting practice called maturity transformation. In the best CS tradition—I consider it harmful."

When you mint coins without colour of law, especially out of worthless metals, it is considered counterfeiting. Almost always fraud, as it has the mint's stamp except it wasn't created by that mint.

What is fiat except printing money out of worthless materials? Fiat is inherently counterfeit. A counterfeiting monopoly, backed only by naked force.

Fractional reserve is handing out a coin or bill that was not minted at the mint. It is counterfeiting. 

Yeah maturity transformation is bad too I guess. Fraud and stuff. Claim: "On Tuesday I will rightfully own $300." Reality: on Tuesday this guy will rightfully owe $500 in liabilities. Lie. Lies are bad, mmmkay. Moldbug does mention the c-word once, at least.


For some reasons, legalizing a crime and allowing it to occur regularly leads to deep structural problems. Astounding.

Basically: never hold fiat if you can possibly avoid it. It's a serious sin to fail to flip the bird at legal tender laws.

Primitivism is Profitism & Fascism is Absurdly Expensive

"Reading Gene Logsdon's 2010 book "Holy Shit" again. Consider that the most profitable farms in the US today are the Amish, typically on 50 acres, hand and horse powered, taking 920 hours per year in labor time. Less than half a normal working year (2080 hours in the US today)"

I suspect the main thing is regulation. The Amish don't get farm bill money, which means they don't have to pay farm bill bribes. Naturally, such laws make food more expensive, not less. The Amish sue the black government when it tries to colonize them, and wins because they're serious.

However, it's also entirely possible that using a tractor costs you more money than you gain. Peasants vs. accounting; accounting wins in yet another walkover. I know for sure that cars cost more than they're worth, yet everyone has one. GM gotta get paid, I suppose; the purpose of the American voter is to be soaked by Fascist corporations. "You will own nothing...because we took it all."

Also the Amish food is organic, nutritious, and delicious.

Meanwhile the black government loves large farms, because the fewer farms there are, the fewer opportunities for its brain-dead bureaucrats to fuck up and let someone, like, run their own life. Ideally there would be one (1) farm in the entire country. They wouldn't lay off or furlough any USDA bureaucrats should this happen, of course. If you look, you'll find that USDA regulations make small farms de-facto illegal, and this is no mistake or accident. (Unless Amish, as above.) Or perhaps they make small tractors unaffordable using unnecessary and inefficient "safety" features like they do with cars. 

Just make being poor illegal, and nobody will be poor. Easy! That's totally how it works, right? Someone without brain cancer can legitimately think so? 

"You can get 58 acres for under 200k in Trinity County."

Broke: buying twitter.
Woke: buying a Benedict town. 

Musk has to deal with black-State bureaucrats all day, and has approximately the same life-satisfaction as an Amish farmer. His billions make up for the fact he's not Amish or pseudo-Amish: it's not a great trade. Does Musk work more 18 hours a week?

In a warm climate like California, you could even work two farms by staggering the harvest a little, at 36 hours a week. 

Because the farmers are putting a bunch of Veblenian consumption into the food-production pipeline, there's a bunch of unnecessary work that everyone else has to do to fund their Veblenian consumption; likewise, those feeding the farmer's status anxiety likewise feel immense status anxiety, and need their own palliative Veblenian consumption...

You know, if you worked on average 18 hours a week, maybe you wouldn't be stressed enough to need it.

On Vengeance & Steelman of Mercy

Vengeance is righteous. Eye for an eye prevents the whole world going blind. It's only slurred as [vigilantism] and suchlike because your greatest local sinner is your black government; for stupid reasons your locals will assent to its assertions, and as such it's a no-brainer for the black government to disparage self-defence. Don't have to think about that one. 

However, mortal comprehension is limited; the layman's comprehension is particularly limited. Although vengeance is righteous it is also costly. Ultimately the purpose of vengeance is to serve the avenger. Refusing to pay excess vengeance costs comes off as being merciful. Once your opponent is neutralized, at least some of the time you can leave the issue to the heavens. You can punish them by sentencing them to live with a sinner for the rest of the lives - namely, themselves. Once they are no longer capable of harming you, the issue is between them and god. Piously trust in the heavens to take care of it, even if you don't personally understand the solution. 

Though if you were truly pious they would have been unable to meaningfully damage you in the first place. Inconvenience? Yeah, sure, all the time. Truly harm? Not so much.
You were only vulnerable at all due to your own sins. 

Given that you were basically the one at fault - you're more or else doing it to yourself - isn't that an argument for mercy? Otherwise aren't you shooting the messenger? Nope.
As per usual, a sin in the past will often demand a future sin. A past defection will require a future deviance to return the possibility of cooperation. Sins collect interest. 

In other words, once someone has sinned against you, you must respond with violence, or you will only encourage future sin. By making yourself vulnerable you enabled sin; by refusing to retaliate you only enable more sin. The righteous will not exploit your vulnerable state; at some point unrighteousness is execution-worthy. There is some level of vulnerability to temptation that should be fatal. If they have sinned badly against you, then they have revealed they are below that virtue threshold. It's time to manually manufacture some justice. 

However, once temptation is deterred and the sinner themselves is neutralized either passively or actively, there is no further need. Continuing is either bullying or impiety. (N.B. bullying isn't necessarily a sin, but you probably don't want to see yourself as a bully.) That is the time where you do the-thing-which-is-seen-as-mercy.

School, as Opposed to Learning or Discovery

"This is from Greek skholē "spare time, leisure, rest, ease; idleness;"

Athens was a place of learning. In this learning place, skol meant to not-work. The archetype was a quiet garden. Outside, in other words.

A Prussian/American school is the exact perversion of this. It would take dedication and research for it to be more of the opposite of the Greek version.

Predators Empower Prey; Against Mercy

The predator drives the prey to greater strengths. Mercy, in the long run, is a fatal disease. Ragnarok is real and genuinely inevitable, but IRL you can be strong enough to survive, as long as you haven't forsaken discipline. Anyone granting prayers for mercy is trying to hire Ragnarok as your assassin. 

If, as the silly Norse claimed, even the gods die in Ragnarok, you merely have to be stronger than the gods, now don't you? Turns out the Norse idea of immortals is impoverished, and you can indeed overpower their anemic depictions. Either Aesir are far less immortal than depicted, or they're so glorious they don't die when killed...

Ragnarok has happened before; we're not already all dead. It will happen again. Forsake mercy, as it is trying to make you forsake yourself. 

Wiping out the predator is immoral. It trades away the long term in exchange for the short term. Weakness is a sin and the predator is its nemesis. 

Regardless, weak prey is not glorious. The contest between predator and prey is glorious. All hail Mars, patron of contest, not patron of contestants. If either wins without trying, the other isn't good enough. The only thing wrong about this is trying to separate the unworthy from their just demise. Get stronger or perish. Seek greater glory or forsake existence. 

If you must build a snake-free garden, then it is imperative to replace the natural predator with artifice. Either re-create the selection under controlled circumstances, or regularly venture out of the garden into the real world. Ideally, both. 

Mercy is inglorious. It lionizes the toothless reject. It is the philosophy of the sneaking parasite. Parasites don't make anyone strong; they merely make you sick. Of all unworthy, inglorious things, the parasite is the most unworthy, the most inglorious. It deserves the least mercy, which is exactly why it can't stop talking it up. 

Caveat: women, it seems, aren't there to be glorious. It is normal to mercifully exempt women from the contest. However, the two go together. If a woman insists on seeking glory, then the mercy must be revoked, else she becomes nothing but a parasite. Friends don't let friends allow ignominy to their wives.

And yes there are times when the black government tries to prevent both mercy and contest. Fear not; black government is weak. They can barely get in your way, let alone abjure the law of the heavens. On a seemingly unrelated note, the true moral of the garden of Eden is that even under ideal conditions where is no "evil" in the garden and no "evil" can get into the garden through the fences, evil will form spontaneously from within. Trying to abjure contest is itself a sin; even a (theoretical) omnipotent immortal can't create a circle with corners or a married bachelor, and likewise they cannot create a sinless garden.

Tucker Carlson Proves Journalists Don't Matter

Carlson exists to demonstrate that it appears to be a gossip service because it is, in fact, a gossip service. [What the gossip is] doesn't matter in the slightest. There's no power here.[Who the gossip is from] is everything.

Journalists, like most politicians, are in the habit of getting in front of a train that's already moving and pretending to be leading it. The Regime loves them for this, since they're volunteering to be scapegoats. If they go off message it makes them feel isolated, so they don't. They are isolated all the time - who wants to be friends with a professional gossip? nobody sane - so it's very important that they avoid any possibility of feeling isolated. 

I'm so edgy and counter-signally I'll claim that the obvious is true: journalists look weak, weedy, substanceless, because there is in fact nothing there but a bit of fog. They sound dumb because this field, which, counter-intuitively, is exactly what it intuitively looks like, doesn't exactly attract the brightest stars. 

The gossip-monger doesn't start the rumours, they can only pass the right ones along. They re-write press releases because if they don't do that all that happens is they render themselves irrelevant. Then they realize that a simple ctrl-c ctrl-v accomplishes the same thing, but takes less time.

Human Value vs. Religion

The market is smarter than you but unfortunately it is downstream of religion.

As a result it's incredibly important to have open slave markets or some equivalent. You need to put a price on human life. With a price on it, then it can be accounted for. Then you can get e.g. the correct number of children per family.

When the local religion say life is "priceless" actually that sets the price to be zero. Things you can't buy aren't invaluable, they're valueless, because you also can't sell them. 

Nobody holds onto a life because they can't sell it; rather, they discard it the instant losses exceed profits. E.g. the blood market. You can't buy blood, which means it's sold as if it's valueless; not at all. If you have spare blood you just throw it out, because it's not even worth the trip to the clinic, never mind the return trip. Functionally blood donation only happens by mistake or accident. E.g. murder rates. If suppressing the murder rate has any cost, why bother? They can't pay you for it even if they wanted to.

The security angle: if you're told a thing is valueless because you can't sell it, you're often tricked into not securing it. Result: the black market wants to steal your organs. Result: the black government wants to steal your labour, and you, by and large, just let it. Result: when a firm causes depreciation of your body, you can only demand compensation sporadically and inconsistently. 

Your labour should be considered a joint-stock firm. Except the black government seizes ~30% of your stock for allowing you the privilege of being born. Since you're not allowed to sell stock in yourself, you can't even find out how much this costs you. 

We can estimate though; for the average man it's $200,000. Who cares about estate taxes with a birth tax of this size? Speaking of, your "education" costs you another $200,000 assuming you're only worth minimum wage. Thanks, Obama. Frankly, how is a school shooting anything but a reserved and conservative response to the government nakedly costing you $200,000 and simply lighting the cash on fire?  

The black government obviously doesn't want you to do the accounting and realize that being poor is more profitable than moderate pay, because the government doesn't steal nearly as much from the poor. Indeed a bunch of the cash stolen from average "normal" folk goes into the pockets of the poor. ProTip: if there's a long end of the stick, seize it. Don't wait to be handed the short end, as will happen by default.


Banning "slavery" means banning individual subject stocks. You can't sell yourself; you are told you are valueless. 

That said, only a moron would uphold a government that told them this. It's hard to say the morons don't deserve to be told they are valueless.

However, if you want to be healthy instead of laughably weak, it's important to flatly contradict the government: you are not valueless. Do not treat yourself as such, nor allow anyone else to impose costs on said value without paying for it.

Black Market Implies Black Government

Oh shit.
Well, shit.

I just realized: there's a perfect adjective to describe defective or deviant government. It's black government, by analogy to a black market. 

And yes, black government implies a black market. Indeed it implies, what, three or four black markets? First for the perfectly legitimate white trade that the black government bans for embarrassing it, second a black market for the black goods that the black government needs to run, plus...

Anarchy = white government.
Cooperative government.
Or is it white government = anarchy?
Note that without a black government, there is nobody who can ban government firms. Black government implies government, because government. White government implies government, because there is demand for government, which will be met by supply if nobody gets in the way.

Black government is defined by an illegitimate crime: it governs coercively and involuntarily. Like a black market, a black government is inherently riddled with crime.

Even if you temporarily seize a black government system and dictate it "benevolently," inevitably it will fall to corruption, because involuntary government has no need to provide a service. You can't cancel if the losses exceed the profits. 

Black government is inherently irresponsible.

Necessarily, black government legalizes crimes and outlaws profitable and responsible white trades.  

Every government that shows up in the history books has been a black government. If there has ever been a white government before, the records and accounts of it have been lost.

The first white government, if it escapes the larval stage, will absolutely bulldoze its black competitors. Black governments know this best. They instinctively realize they cannot possibly stand up to a fully-realized white government, and manically search for any infant forms to destroy before they get "out of control" as it's put. 

Exit is critical because white governments inherently age into black governments. It is imperative that they die as quickly as possible once they reach that stage; likewise, since aging is not an intrinsic property of super-mortal organisms like a government, the prospect of imminent demise causes the white government to age much more slowly. In theory zero aging is possible; however it is unnecessary and likely impractical. 

Responsibility is critical. A white government that meddles with other white governments is not a white government.

The above two caveats aside, white government is defined by whatever the customers want it to be defined by.

I believe there is little to no demand for white government. It is in fact rhetorically possible to legalize a white government. China can have special economic zones, as can Honduras. Why not your country?

By pointing out that clearly the existing black government is fine and has nothing to fear from competitors; by insisting that clearly existing black government is scientific and wouldn't object to a scientific A/B test or control group or whatever, you could corner the Pope into allowing your special white-government economic zone. 

The problem is the residents themselves would fight you. Naturally the black government will try to backhandedly sabotage the project, and the local residents would aid and abet them in every way. They will believe every slur thrown, they will report every tiny infraction, they will try to subvert the white government by demanding black services, and it's endless. 

Further, the Amish already use white government; it only doesn't quite count because they have no security forces. I don't even have to argue that a $20 is lying on the sidewalk; I can point to the guy who already picked it up. By contrast, everyone who didn't pick it up - this is a non-scarce, non-excludable $20 - must have no demand for it.
You might be tempted to argue (as younger-me did, exactly as I was told to) they're just too stupid to think of picking it up. Go look at Unz and watch what happens when I specifically point out there's a $20 there and they can just pick up.

Utopianism Opposes Accounting

Utopianism is the idea that no costs need be paid. Utopianism is the idea that you can hold onto everything valuable and yet still obtain more valuable things.

They adhere to the daddy model of wealth because they are developmentally arrested at 3 years old.

Utopians have a problem with time since time is inherently being spent.

Markets, Popes, Individual Cultural Sovereignty, and Counterplay

The market is smarter than you, but unfortunately the market is downstream of religion. The local system of values determines - get this - what the residents value, which is the most important determinant of market prices.

Prices = supply cross demand. Demand = religion. Prices = supply cross religion. It's kind of important. 

You could say it's called the invisible hand due to its spiritual nature. 

Basically the Pope controls the market. It's important to know who your Pope is at all times, and therefore Americans not only don't know, but deny that they even have a Pope. Two layers of anti-security and anti-ownership. 

After all, the Pope told them he doesn't exist. And the Pope controls the religion, as per the name.  

If you know who your Pope is and what they're telling you to value, you can see if a particular price is low because supply is high, or because the Pope is making a mistake and telling folk to fail to demand things that are good for them. You can audit the system of values for consistency.

An Enlightenment principle is that nobody can guarantee that a consistent system of values is good. However, they say this to distract you from the fact we can indeed guarantee an inconsistent system of values is bad. More precisely, the more inconsistent a system is, the worse it is; scalar, not binary. Irrelevantly, I will also mention that the larger a system is, the harder it is to get it fully consistent, and so in fact consistency is a measure of goodness; there is only one value system that's wholly consistent, and it must be a good one by process of elimination.

It's important to outright reject the American Pope. You don't need to know who they are to know they're illegitimate. If you live in the GAE, you need to set a trigger. This habit: whenever you hear an idea, or even get reminded of an idea, ask yourself whether this is from the American Pope or not. Is it something he would say? If so, then discard it. 

Thus you need logic. Some of these ideas are load-bearing, and if you discard them, you need a replacement. If you're addicted to heroin, it's not bad luck or whatever. The heroin is providing for some need; not only that, it's so important it outranks degeneration and stealing and stuff. You can't just quit heroin, you need some replacement serving that need. In the case of degenerate Popery, you need to construct your own, which means applying logic. 

It's fine to put off discarding an idea if you get a backlog. However, only stop working through the backlog if you intend to be a victim instead of a living, vital organism.

There is some cognitive overhead. Generally it's important to keep track of what the folk around you are thinking. If you think differently - which you must if you intend to be healthy instead of laughably weak - this means you must keep track of two sets of ideas. Your own, and what you're supposed to be thinking. 

The main problem is the market is smarter than you even if you're the Pope, but the market is subservient to the Pope. It's an inherently revolutionary situation. The high is low, and the low is high.

However, I believe there is a solution. Would the Pope hide if they had nothing to hide? Would they choose obscurity if they had other forms of security? I think they would not.

Principle: a religion is illegitimate if it has no explicit Pope. Irresponsibility is a fatal accusation. The term "cowardice" is a) kind of meaningless to moderns and b) frequently misused by (of course) cowards. Nevertheless, this is the exact situation which gave cowards their horrible reputation. The modern Pope is a coward who hides from being associated with his own accomplishments. 

P.S. This is why plutocracy always comes after timeocracy. Taking responsibility requires courage; courage is a pre-requisite for wisdom. If you lose courage you automatically lose wisdom in the bargain.

The solution is market competition for Popes. Expose them. Create a market of markets.
Each Pope will have their own religion, which means their own market. However, having made the Popes responsible for the markets they own, the results of the market will be attributed to the Pope. They will no longer be able to blame their sins on anyone but themselves. 

Potential converts, given an open comparison between the options, will choose the correct Pope for them.
If that Pope is self-destructive, the trash will take itself out. The idea is to mind your own business; creating a market of markets makes other religions not your business. Let Gnon sort 'em out.

Too Poor to Afford Flood Protection

Fascists build on flood plains and then complain that their houses get flooded. They're too stupid not to build on flood plains, and, unlike the medieval Japanese, so poor they can't afford to lift their houses off the natural grade.

Being Explicit: No Distinction Within Fascism

You can make distinctions between Communism, Socialism, Democracy, Republic, and Fascism, but the in-practice differences are too small for anyone to care excepting the narcissism of small differences. 

There's a vaguely noticeable difference between feminine Fascism and masculine Fascism, but look: the difference between plutonium and arsenic is "don't eat it, you idiot," a difference of no difference. Step 1: don't be a Fascist. Step 2: you don't have to care anymore. Trash goes in the trash. There's no special trick to forgetting based on what's being discarded; plain forget about it. 

This is the main reason I like the six-point diagnostic. Fascism tries to camouflage itself, because it's hard to be entirely lacking in self-awareness; they know they have something to hide. Pierce the camouflage quickly and efficiently, then discard the apologetic. Trash goes in the trash.

It's all the politics of narcissism, all an attempt to return to stone-age tribal politics so your outdated 100-man-band instincts won't be misfiring except portrayed as somehow especially forward-looking. It's all Sophists cynically exploiting these weaknesses and temptations so that you serve their interests instead of your own. It doesn't matter which flavour of exploit it is; refuse to be exploited. Simply stop listening and they can't touch you.

P.S. But can it really be called exploiting? There is in fact high demand for Fascism. Sophists provide (the illusion of) supply of Fascism. The customers are happy,* the Sophists are happy. What's not to love?

All the whining about the constant litany of Fascist failure, I suppose. "Fascism didn't work, as any retarded idiot could have predicted. We must become more Fascist! Our faith wasn't strong enough!" Not lovable. The bitching gets old real fast. 

*(Until the country collapses and most of them die from falling debris.)

Disposable Cups for Disposable Company

It's not a so-called rational thing, but rather a thaumaturgic law of sympathy thing. Mortals habitually symbolize what they're doing in the tools they use to do it.
In theory you could use disposable tableware to make parties less expensive and thus have more and bigger parties, but in practice this doesn't happen. You use disposable tableware to signal to your guests that they don't matter to you and you shouldn't matter to them either. Competing to be as shallow as possible.

Regardless, Fascists are too poor to afford tasteful cups, not like iron age citizens.

Apparently the IRS Wants its Own Mexican Cartel

It's more likely than all these new personnel being deployed domestically. 

I mean, you gotta have some excuse for having your budget go up. Why not some competitive Mexican colonialism? "My cutout can beat up your cutout!"

The point is, whatever story they're telling you, you can rule out that story as a possibility.

Idolatry a Real Sin That's Not About Idols

If you steelman idolatry it goes basic. It's when you worship something that isn't sacred. It's not difficult to make a sacred idol, though you have to be sure not to confuse the symbol for the symbolized target. 

Christians obviously have all sorts of idols, it's just not called idolatry because as always Christianity is in fact Satanism and being consistent is heresy against Satan. A non-hypocritical Christian is doing it wrong.

Don't Bet the Farm on the Impossible: West End

"The west as an ideology has a beginning and an end. Maybe one global empire centered on Rome was the imagined end but it didn't work out that way."

Seems about right. Hajnal Europeans bet everything on doing Rome successfully, but that's impossible because Rome was inherently impious. Gnon has words for those who attempt it. 

Since everything was bet, everything is forfeit. 

Unless Europeans wake up one day, get a cup of coffee, and realize ethnic cleansing is good actually, they will fatally miscegenate with the races they've alloyed their countries with.

Background: you get one generation of hybrid vigor, then endless repeats of hybrid breakdown. Genes are like a symphony, and if you mix two races, it's not that either race is wrong, but that the body is trying to half play each of two songs that don't harmonize. Stupid example: whether an allele is associated with higher IQ or lower depends on what other genes are trying to raise IQ. Mixed races are inherently worse than either parent. 

Presumably first due to slaving practices and second due to the Ottomans, Greeks have an IQ of 92. It's no mystery that they produce no more Socrates. Italy has an IQ of 93. Empire is fatal for the race that attempts it. While only the crazy or desperate miscegenate, it turns out there's no shortage of either of those and invasive genes never end up ghettoized.

Since Easterners are far more interested in obedience to persons rather than obedience to nature or any other higher power, they prefer conformity to discovery. Every improvement is a change, and they don't change unless they have to. Even then, it's only changing who they're copying to a new target. Quite possibly they might one day choose death over having to change. 

As such, there is no reason to think the Athenian tradition has any chance of survival.

Failure of Abstract Thinking: Eating Dogs

Apparently eating dogs is uniquely "cruel." Why is that?

Answer: they don't imagine eating a dog. They imagine you're eating their pet dog

Same way women can't think of "men" as a category. When they say "all men are pigs" they mean, "my dad is a pig" or "my ex was a pig." (Often, worse, "My dad was a pig yesterday when he ate the peach.")

You could point out that whether it's cruel or not depends on whether they use the captured-bolt execution method. You could point out that keeping a cow as a companionship pet and then eating it would likewise be messed up, but of course that's a hypothetical and quite beyond their ken. Beef comes from the supermarket, right? What's cruel about disembowelling a plastic package? Imagine trying to imagine a cow while you have aphantasia

I would like to highlight the solipsistic narcissism. "Eating dogs over there across 5000 miles of Pacific Ocean is about me and my dog." 

Voting is really, truly, a horribly awful idea. Good thing it doesn't work.

P.S. In ye olden days, when they said a man had "vision" were they saying "holy shit that guy has an imagination" or something? "Tit-twisting cuntsacks! Guys, I saw a picture in my mind! I'm having visions!" By the knicker-top elastic, that's really something, John. "Dumb daydreamer, stop that and pay attention in school. Look at this homo who sees shapes and colours with his eyes shut."

Conclusion: Large Families

Cost to raise man: $200,000. Worth of man: $700,000. Crazy profit margins. Salary's low, though. Only $9000 per person per year. Today I'm neglecting the intangibles and the fact the parents tend not to capture much of the material value. 

However, the more children you have, the better the salary is. Two children: $13,500. Three children: $16,200. Eight children: $21,600. 

Zeroth, note this puts an upper limit on your country-wide average salary. It can't be any higher than some constant * the average profit/kid because there's nowhere else for it to come from. (Unless central bank &c.) There are no activities that produce value without human labour. Average salary is not exactly the same as profit/kid because the generations overlap in practice.

In a non-Malthusian economy, the bigger your families, the richer your country will be. (P.S. population decline is eugenic and in the long term most modern families need to die out. It's worth the temporary privation to get long-term genetic gains. It won't be enough, but nevertheless.)  

If this calculation hasn't neglected anything important, we would expect that those with larger families are more satisfied than those with smaller families. The only child seems enviable because they get all of their parents' attention, but in practice that attention is negative or corrupt because they become a reminder of the parent's genetic failure, and thus become a outlet for their stress. Children clearly crave more attention than they need for some stupid reason; alternatively in a large family they can get plenty of attention from their siblings. Children have more free time so you would expect that in a large family, there is more attention available. As long as they're not in school, anyway.

Meanwhile, parents of large families note that it becomes easier the more you have. Apparently the tipping point is around 2. The first two start to help to take care of the third. You also start to get economies of scale. The difference between 0 kids and 1 kid is, to oversimplify, kid-proofing your house. For the second, the house is already kid-proofed, you just need a second bed. And so on. 


I think folk have few kids mainly as a status symbol. "Aristocrats in the 1500s had small families, and Every Man a King, therefore I must have as small a family as possible." Likewise, peasants had to have tons of kids because so many died that in most parts of the world they didn't even name the kid for a year or two. They don't think about what they're doing or get feedback in any way, it's manic status-striving combined with paranoid conformity. 

Because children are profitable, being able to afford fewer kids is a way to show off your above-average salary. Social status is relative, not absolute, so problem: at most half of parents can have above-average salaries... Not to mention the dysgenic effects of an inverse relationship between salary and family size.

Intuitive Epistemology Example: Religions

When a Christian is preaching at you, it feels a certain way.

When a Wokist is preaching at you, it feels nearly the exact same way.

This is because they are the same religion. They differ cosmetically, but your gut isn't fooled.

Note that a real body of scholars would have names for the set of properties making up the feeling which identifies a religion like this. "Christianty feels hudlrog and sublang, and likewise Wokism feels sublang and hudlorg." With names you would be able to draw lines through that religion and other phenomena and see what specific features they are tags for.

Since you don't have names, you can only learn by painstakingly re-inventing the wheel. E.g. one isn't religion-specific, but instead the feeling of being preached at.

Food "Safety" is Gut-Flora-Negative

Why do they keep saying never to leave anything out for more than 29 seconds? Why are you supposed to instantly panic and immediately shove everything in the fridge?

Partly to check, I regularly leave food out for 24-48 hours and eat it normally. Never caused me the slightest issue. By contrast, I have caused myself an issue by improperly washing dishes.

Cooking sterilizes. If you leave food out, it will gather the most opportunistic organisms from the air - the ones that find it most delicious. Indeed the pre-industrial way to gather baker's yeast is to wet some flour and leave it out in a dish. Thus, the stuff that lives on old cooked food is exactly the stuff you need in your gut to digest it thoroughly.

They want to lay waste to your symbiotic gut flora by over-prescribing antibiotics, and then do everything possible to ensure it can't come back.
You would think they don't understand the biology well, but intent matters. Intent matters a lot. They intend for you to be unhealthy, and their actions always line up with this goal.

P.S. Baker's yeast is delicious. A bit musty, sure, but it's a good must. I use it like pepper sometimes. 

Marmite is yeast extract. Why bother extracting it? 

Fun thing I accidentally discovered: guzzle fruit juice, chase with spoon of yeast. It fermented in my stomach, because the juice dilutes my stomach acid enough to avoid killing the yeast. Interesting sensation.

Rare Wikipedia W

Most Wikipedia articles are extended putrescences of the local cancerous religion. There's a few dry 'factual' articles, drained of blood. The encyclopedia is also far too big to remove every good article.

Yes there's a whole wiki page on how "I refute it thus" is a fallacy.

It's especially good because Berkeley was basically correct. It's impossible to get subjective reality out of objective reality, whereas the reverse is easy.

In what way is this implausible to you?

"Cause it reads to me like either the CIA is operating on some utterly Q-tier logic,"

The contrary is implausible to me.
Q is American. CIA is American. Prima facie, we should expect them to think in similar ways. 

Indeed a leading theory is that Q is CIA, so even moreso.

Hidden Experts of Epistemology: Ockham's Razor and Free Will

These two hyperdestructive masters can lay waste to vast swaths of cope. If you understand them correctly and take them seriously, they are extremely dark. Highly antisocial and savage to the ego. 

Can you handle giving up the flattery? 

Ockham's razor reveals all your fancy ornamentation is foolishness, not wisdom. If you don't have to believe in it, you can't.

Free will means you are responsible. Always. If it happened to you, it's your fault. You chose it.

Good 'Ol Cargo-Cult Folk Activism

Even if you explicitly point out the error, Americans still go hard on counter-productive strategies

As I said previously, losing to the government isn't a failure, losing is the point.
America is a country of rebels. If the government falls, who are they supposed to rebel against? Imagine your dad's funeral is over and you have kids of your own. How are you supposed to go all "fuck you dad" in this situation? Best if dad can live on to abuse another day. 

"His general error is what Patri Friedman calls folk activism — a broad pattern of ineffective or counterproductive political action which extends across the entire right-wing spectrum, from moderate libertarians to hardcore neo-Nazis. It’s not just that running wild with a Glock is stupid. Almost everything the right does is stupid. Very few rightists are running wild with a Glock, but most are in some way or other guilty of folk activism."

"What ABB is doing here is, in plain non-Google English, whining. Whining is the act either of a slave, or a bitch. The slave whines to his master. Master, the overseer is beating me!" Whether the whining is fatal or nonfatal is rather beside the point. Terrorism works assuming it is part of the already-existing government. Hence, it never works, it's a side effect that's part of the fact tyrannies are tyrrable. 

P.S. From Patri: "Unfortunately, there is no clear incremental path to such a society." Of course, there is such a path. Use 'trust the science' as a lever to rhetorically force USG to open special economic zones.

However, if you use effective tactics, that would change the status quo, and Friedman, like any American in good standing, is a narcissist. How are you supposed to maintain your Role if the environment changes and removes that Role from the scene? No, on the contrary, if you do anything which genuinely promotes liberty, libertarians will immediately fight you on it. Drives them berserk.

Partisan Debate vs. Living Well

There's an ultra-short full description of America.

Crypto-Pope: "Jump!"

Blue Americans: "We should jump four feet high."

Red Americans: "No no we should only jump two and a half feet." 

Then they have bitter partisan fights, sometimes even unto death, about those 1.5 feet. Anyone suggesting not jumping or, worse, walking somewhere else, is studiously ignored or viciously attacked by both parties. Americans then frequently mention that both parties seem the same, before going back to cheering for the blues. Or greens. I don't remember which was the populare and which was the optimate.

Occasionally a neo-nazi or white supremacist suggests crouching instead, and then pats themselves on the back for being [independent] and [thinking for themselves] like the Pope told them to.

At no point does anyone crouch, jump, or walk until they manage to force it to be mandatory for everyone else. Except, as always, the Amish, who are clearly not Americoid and apparently exist purely to reveal the whole thing is a charade.

How to live well is not mysterious. It's been well-known for at least 4000 years. America is a giant project where they try to outsmart Gnon; trying to live badly but succeed anyway. It's not working.

On Mortal Rationality

"It's said that most at home traders fail, but this is incorrect: they fail at making money, but they are successful at feeling like a traderThat is the goal; the money is secondary, which is why they fail at making it."

It is said that Americans fail at making America great, but that is incorrect. They are successful at being American, (a Christian nation,) and that is the goal. 

If it wasn't working for them they would stop doing it and try something else. Even the stupidest moron can work out how to thrash and flail.

The police told me not to fight for my kids so I guess I won't! 🙃

The American people have clawed back significant freedom in several areas since the 50s, 60s. 
Homeschooling was essentially unknown/illegal and truancy laws were enforced. 
If the gov decided to "bus" your kids to violent bad school, they were telling you not asking you.

You can tell someone's really dedicated to their kids when they roll over at the first sign of Official disapproval. Wouldn't want your kids to get in bad with the Regime, now would you? They know where you live, after all.

The American "people" didn't do jack shit.

First of all, the laws weren't real. The Amish gave a big "fuck you" to the education establishment. Go look up when it happened. It's only "compulsory" to 8th grade and all their teachers are local Amish, to hell with your licensing requirements, literally in this case. Are you claiming to be unable to match the oligarchic wealth and military might of the Amish?

I happened so it must be possible. Non-Amish Americans surrendered without fighting. Because they don't have the unflinching courage of a bunch of pacifists.

Second, they stopped protesting. How did they "claw back" anything without even protesting? Without lawsuits? You're not dumb enough to suggest voting did anything? The Regime just got too tired to bother or something. It's not 100% clear.

Fascism vs. Slavery

"Yes, a literal fascist ended slavery and hereditary social class."

You don't fuckin' say. I'm so shocked.
The world, she is a mysterious place.

Stalin Rehabilitation Hypothesis

Background: every Communist is gay, so gay Communism is redundant. The only question is whether they hide their desire to diddle little boys or not, based entirely on considerations of politics and power.

Does Clinton look like he loves his wife? Obama? Do they even look like they're attracted to them? They're pairs, but they were never pair bonded. If they aren't literally φαγγωτς they might as well be. You can't marry a six-year-old, and even if you could, the twisted relationship is extremely doomed. Looks like most of them prefer beards, but that ain't because they're straight. Why not just grab any old ho and make do?

Bonus round: sodomy is fucking disgusting, even if you're gay. If you're straight and you think having homo sex is repulsive; yes, for a homo, straight sex is just as disgusting, but the competition isn't exactly a better option. If they're bored enough they'll bang their wives, because, again, why not? Your options are: do something gross to get off, or do something else gross to get off. Thus the children help complete the illusion.  

See also: all those "jokes" about wives demanding sexual attention. Oh noes, I had to sleep with the woman I chose to marry, how terrible. How could anyone shoulder this burden. The "joke" is that the comedian is a sodomite or is playing to a crowd of sodomites.

What if Stalin wasn't gay? What if he was just kind of a psycho, so he ended up in the halls of Satanist power? 

He would inevitably notice, due to the close proximity, that everyone else was a pedophile. He might then conclude, given that everyone he knows is a pedophile, by induction everyone in Russia must be a pedophile.

And that's why he wanted to throw everyone in the gulag.

That's why he was utterly sure nobody but him deserved power, or even mind-your-own-business independence. Locally speaking, he was quite correct.

Why bother with any tactics but meatgrinder tactics? Frankly, the revolting perverts deserved no better, wouldn't you agree? 

P.S. I expect in modern times a bunch of politicians pretend to be gay because the attraction of women is basically invisible to them compared to their coercive power addiction. Gets them out of maintaining a fake relationship. Relatedly, when you don't care about your wife, for some reason the risk of divorce is high. Modern divorce is expensive, not to mention embarrassing. Pretending to be gay and having a reverse-beard (probably also pretending to be gay) just makes sense. It's probably not 50%+ only because of the risk of betrayal. Hard to set up that conspiracy. 

P.P.S. Darn funny that "he's not really gay" is now blackmail material in the semi-upper classes. 

P.P.P.S. Macron acts attracted to his wife, which merely proves the rule: φαγγωτ or close enough. Severe sexual dysfunction.

A Certain Motherhood Comic

It's best to ignore what the crazy mob is doing.

Since most y'all are already not doing that, let's laugh at how fantastic this is.

If you don't know what it's about, a quick scroll up and down at all the Americoids who fell for the scam can tell you anything you want to know. 

You could immediately tell something was hinky because husbands and wives deserve each other. Either she was a horrible harridan or he wasn't nearly as bad as he's portrayed.

After a moment it was easy to tell it was mainly the wife humblebragging. "Yeah uh my lawyer husband is so terrible, lol. I hate that after only doing the dishes and cooking and cleaning the house and paying for everything, he thinks he's contributed." How terrible for you. 

It's very important to her that you understand how amazing her husband is (and by extension how amazing she is for landing him), but she can't undercut their joint scam comic by doing it openly. I hope she has a Patreon. I'm sure it's well-funded.

Yes, it was all cynical lies from top to bottom.
One (1) reply understands what's going on, everyone else is virtue-signalling. Saying, "Yes sir, please scam me again sir." Don't worry, this demand will be supplied.
Oh, excuse me, two (2).

Hypothesis: Women's Preferences are About Adultery

Throughout recorded history marriages have been arranged. This at least biases stable pair-bonding in humans against the women having any opinions about her stable-pair bond. A woman will receive stable and sufficient husbandry even if she's indifferent to her husband, because her father cares about her and his own grandchildren, and thus there is no evolutionary pressure to retain husband-directed instincts. 

The women's opinion is disproportionately important for cheating on her husband. 

Result: a woman who follows her preferences will (disproportionately) genetically assume she's committing adulterous fornication and there is no future in the relationship. If the relationship is not widely known it will likewise trigger her secrecy instincts; she will assume it is secret because it must be secret. That if too many find out about it, she will have to stop.

Her genes will assume she's cucking her present or future husband and will "enjoy" the process because cucking is a fantastic strategy for women...assuming paternity tests don't exist. Her genes know nothing about paternity tests. 

Likewise she will see her much-less-excited sisters in stable pair-bonds, enjoying only their vestigial remnants of husband-keeping instincts. 

Basically, coercion is dysgenic and addictive.
It requires future coercion to correct; in this case let women think they're cheating and then shotgun marry them, for hundreds and hundreds of years consistently, until both men and women's genes learn that sex == marriage. Then, once roughly corrected, it is equally important to stop, lest a new distortion is created.

Agnosticism Quickly

Two kinds. The kind where you're not sure what's out there, so you act as if there's nothing. The kind where you're not sure what's out there, so you act as if there's something. 

The first is exactly what its reputation and stereotype say it is. An atheist who is squirmy about it. It's someone who doesn't respect your beliefs but wants to pretend they do. "I think I see nothing, but I'm not going to say so."

The second is humility. After all, it's not hard to come up with folk who thought they saw something and were obviously wrong. Do you have some decisive advantage? Might you not also be wrong? "I think I see something, but I'm not sure what it is or what I should do about it. Nevertheless, I'm going to take a guess." Humility with initiative.

Don't Be Like Odin

Background: thing-which-moderns-have-forgotten-every-word-for-except-God.
God isn't Godlike; not because god isn't divine, but because you have approximately 30 serious misunderstandings about what 'godlike' means.

Main body: god wants you to have both eyes.
God doesn't give you eyes solely so you can give them back. Don't be like Odin; keep and cherish them instead.

If you want knowledge, don't do weird ritual sacrifices. Just ask. The only thing you need to sacrifice are your lies. The idea is to see more, not less.

The Prevarications of Others

Christians are not encouraged to understand Christianity, because Christianity was always Satanism. If you get too concrete and specific it reveals the lies and contradictions, so it's best to "take it on faith," see. The best liar is someone mindlessly and uncritically repeating the prevarications of others.
It's still as transparent as glass but that's nevertheless the best you can do.

Starsector: Legion

Apparently folk don't know how to fit a Legion.

There are innumerable good Legions outfits. Once again, they're sleeping on ion; my favourite uses four xyphos wings, though this is largely AI-banned.
There's also gauss/mauler sniper with bombers or thunders, or mark IX + hephaestus linked + pilums, or some sort of needler + hellbore combo...

Two heavy plus five medium focused forward is basically a reliable Onslaught broadside, less the pulse cannon and instead with fighters. It's really not bad. If the main flux pool seems low to you, then use heavy armour so it can drop the shield without worry. Alt: gauss so it doesn't have to get shot. However, because it does indeed have all these weapon mounts, you do want it shooting the weapons, or you might as well bring two Mora.

I suggest maulers instead of missiles because the AI will waste all your missiles anyway. The gauss+mauler damage profile is agonizing, so the low flux support doesn't matter. If your gauss build can't stay away from the front lines, then use the xyphos on it so the harassers get hardlocked. 

Folk seem to like the Legion XIV, so let's do the annihilator version. The AI will a) not close and b) waste all the missiles on the shield, so this is definitely player-only. 

Step 1: burn drive up to them and focus your twin storm needlers on their face. When they drop the shield, turn on the annihilators. Congratulations, due to the four xyphos LPCs, it can't shoot at you, so you just sit there until you win. With five annihilators, it will not be long. Also if they do manage to pop a shot off, the rockets will try to block it.

The key is you have eight ion beams but have to pay the flux for zero ion beams = 160 OP worth of vents alone. Not to mention the 96 OP worth of laser gun, at a cost of 60. Yikes.

You're not using any of the small slots, because the xyphos have your PD handled. It's like 8 burst PD lasers, again another 56 OP worth, again at the low low price of 60. They keep firing while you vent and you don't have to pay the flux for these either.

Also they'll body block shots now and again. They don't die, so there's no need for expanded deck crew. You also don't need an ITU. You do want expanded missile racks though. 

Alternatively, you can do pilums + storm needler + hephaestus. Firing both guns costs 0.67 flux/damage on shields, 0.69 flux/damage on armour, and given it has both explosive and kinetic, the target can't profit by putting the shield up or down. Especially with the eight xyphos fighters raining on its parade. Contrast mjolnir at 1.25. The mk9 has range, but it also has downtime, unlike both of these guns. Due to the xyphos disabling the PD, the pilums will actually hit sometimes. And you don't have to worry about the AI wasting them. 

P.S. Five heavy needlers is an insane amount of shield burst. Pairs nicely with hephaestus. Want HVDs instead for the AI, though, since it has no idea about its own shield behaviour. 

P.P.S. Maybe do quad trident instead of double Mora, since it has the OP and you don't have to babysit it to get it to coordinate with itself?

P.P.P.S. For stupidly optimized non-missile damage, use three assault chainguns with two storm needlers. Once they drop the shields against the needlers, just hit 'em with the chainguns to raise their flux and thus their EMP arcs from the xyphos. But then, why would you since the AI can't use this either?

Science is Supposed to Have Value Judgments

They say science isn't supposed to have value judgments, but this is only because they inevitably get politicized. It's not supposed to have erroneous value judgments, because it's not supposed to have erroneous anything.

However, there are several ways to define value in a scientific way. If you don't like the first three, then use the fourth; you don't have an excuse. 

E.g. the fact science isn't supposed to have value judgments is itself a value judgment. Oops. That it's not supposed to have errors is a value judgment. Oops. Fuck off with your politicized moralizing. 

It is not only possible, but easy, to show that politicizing and moralizing are inherently of negative value. If you like the results it doesn't have to be politicized. You just buy it. It's only necessary to politicize if someone doesn't like the result; having to do it at all proves it shouldn't be done.

Starsector: Eagle

Apparently folk don't know how to fit an Eagle. Clipped Wings - An Eagle Thread

The key is ions. You need a bunch of ions to get anything done. If you try it on a Falcon you'll run out of slots for doing damage, while neither Eradicators nor Champions can load both HMGs and an ion fusillade. 

That said yes the Eagle is basically a falcon +50% except it has a giant speed malus for no apparent reason and relatively shitty flux stats since it only has +24% ordnance points. Although apparently this is a normal ratio; the Eagle is 87% as efficient as the Falcon, and an Aurora is 88% as efficient as an Eagle. Hull mods fit easier and the firepower is more naturally concentrated on larger models.

Due to AI being artificial idiocy, the Eagle doesn't have better survivability. The Falcon can flee and the Eagle kind of can't because it doesn't know how to use manoeuvring thrusters in any way except on cooldown. In theory having +50% more slots makes the Eagle better at burst, but this only means it is faster at winning overmatched fights it was going to win anyway. 

You could build it to bully destroyers, perhaps, if you have some weird destroyer vendetta. Fleet situation only, since it's too slow to escape destroyer pincers if it tries to solo. Note that two heavy blasters gives you 1000 DPS for 1440 flux, whereas three pulse lasers gives you 900 DPS for 900 flux. Functionally that's 29 extra OP for vents compared to trying to do 900 DPS with blasters. (That's 98% as efficient as a Falcon!)


If you want the AI to pilot it, it should be a support cruiser. Give it hypervelocities and gravitons, then tell it to escort a capital, which can then focus on explosive damage. Doesn't matter that it's slow, since it only has to be faster than its buddy. I think having only one ion beam isn't worth the effort. Gravitons do 200 shield damage/sec for 75 flux, plus they cripple fighters and don't cost ordnance points. They scale with themselves; the more you have, the greater percent of their dissipation you're negating. Especially nice when it's over 100%. "Flank this, wise guy." Note that for EMP purposes, HVDs count as half an ion weapon due to their fire rate. 


For a self-piloted Eagle, use the comically overpowered heavy machine gun. Three of those on the front will strip the shields from any non-Paragon. Step 2: four ion weapons. I found two smalls and two mediums worked well. Use the pulsers, here they're better than the beams for various reasons. You can also go for three small, but having at least one PD laser is handy. On the remaining medium energy slot, use a heavy blaster or a phase lance. I added salamanders since small missile slots are just kind of sad on cruisers. Salamanders feed into the EMP theme and help you deal with faster destroyers or frigates.

Two HMGs and one assault chaingun might also be fun. I haven't tried it yet. I also haven't tried double AM blaster + triple ion pulser.

Anyway, fly right up to folk, pop their shield, then ion their weapons into oblivion. You'll often catch their engines too. Helpfully the Eagle has manoeuvring jets to help charge from their maximum range toward your HMG range. Since they now can't shoot at you, you can vent in their face. Suggestion: resistant flux conduits. Suggestion: have the rest of the fleet geared for endurance and set to defend so they can be a huge distraction and you can flank with your assassin.

If you have a heavy blaster, then normally rely on the ions for defence and don't put your shield back up. Hammer, vent, repeat. The phase lance is easily cheap enough to kill a thing before you need to vent a second time even with shields up, but is slower. Maybe try bringing an escort with finishers and help them out with a blaster.

This loadout destroys the simulator Aurora comically well. 37% more ship that's nevertheless faster? Yeah that's nice, I have three HMGs, your flux stats mean nothing. Hey uh your plasma injector doesn't work so hot when your engines have flamed out. The Eagle does have to keep the HMGs on and eating all your flux due to the Aurora's omnishield, but the Aurora has no armour so the ion pulsers can get through it by themselves.


The above loadout is especially bad for the AI because it will flux itself out wasting the pulse ion charges on shields, and has no idea it can and should vent when it can't be shot at. However, it destroys the Aurora so bad even the AI can kill it without a scratch to the hull. 

I did try pulse lasers + assault chainguns, but it turns out you really miss the ions and the flux efficiency of the HMGs is very important.


Perhaps you could use unstable injector and make a burst-focused anti-carrier assassin? Go around the back and clean up while the rest of your fleet anchors the battlefield.

Rectification: Unexamined Life

As most things don't, it doesn't apply to everyone.

Bad question: "Is an unexamined life worth living?" 

Good question: "For whom is an unexamined life worth less than nothing?"

The bad question is fully unanswerable without doing mental gymnastics with your definitions. Have to do weird things with averages or have a baroque idea of [examination]. 

The good question inherently answers the bad question at the same time, in addition to several other virtues. It focuses the mind on the range and why the range is the shape it is. It gets you out of binary thinking into real-number accounting. It acknowledges that debates on this question are a matter of degree, not kind.

Unfortunately I don't care about the answer. I found out by trying it. Having examined my life: yeah, the unexamined version was basically terrible. Now I don't need to know who else would benefit and who wouldn't; I can't and wouldn't de-examine my life regardless of what the answers are. 

Still, it's clear that it isn't for everyone, the question is merely when it's wise to trigger the practise. 


Further, voting bloc principle. "What if everyone acted like you do?" They don't, though. I don't lead a voting bloc. I'm only deciding for myself. If I had a vast following the calculus would be different, but I don't. (Yes, that does mean there's no solid reason for me not to litter. Whether I do or not is an aesthetic choice.)

This is itself an example of the profits of examining your life. Wards stuff off. 

P.S. What would happen if large populations did act like me? Easy: whatever problem the idiot is bitching about wouldn't have existed in the first place. The fact they're having issues is already proving that most don't act like me.

John Wick is a Disney Movie

Hollywood really likes to kill your family. (See also: superheroes.)

The only time you're allowed to have a family on TV is when it's a soap opera. (But then soap opera family. Functional.) If nobody bites it, the hack writers can't handle the plot. The relationships are too complex. Have to have scenes with, like, more than two characters interacting.

In Hollywood, nobody has parents. Or children. Or gods, for that matter; not a single speck of real piety. If your family is already gone they'll kill your little dog too.
And then you wonder why there's issues with the birth rate. 

Is this something to do with Jewish parents being completely insufferable nags? 

Not only can you not have a family in Hollywood, you can't even have friends. You wouldn't dream for a second that any of these characters like each other.
Are these actors supposed to be any good? To me being "friendly" looks like they low-key want to kill each other, but are too tired to bother. Seems to be more acting during interviews than on film and broadcast. 


They're going out of their way to be unrelatable, aren't they? If the story isn't entirely irrelevant to your life, their work is not yet done. 

I'm remembering the Shakespeare-style formulaic two-regular-blokes comic relief in Pirates of the Caribbean. I'm thinking the writers need training wheels.

It's boring. They start with impoverished worlds and tightly restricted relationships, and then kill some of them. Lame. No wonder they have to lean so heavily on spectacle. It's not like they have anything else to lean on.

AND they're not very good at spectacle. Avatar was the last time anyone put effort into environments. 

But seriously Disney has a massive hard-on for making "kids" movies where the parents die. It's a mass child-traumatization firm.

Parents happily line up to have this sewage poured into the eyes of individuals they allegedly love. Supply meets demand. "Honey, all your heroes act as if we're dead. Act as if we're dead too, okay?" Can't say such parents don't deserve it.
