Outliers (#50)

We live in a time that is not post-truth but anti-truth. The growth of alternative media and global communication presents a challenge to the hegemony of the Cathedral over our view of the world, and this is best reflected in the fumbling manner in which the Cathedral attempts to plug the holes in its leaking ship. Of course, half of the plugs spring a new leak ten minutes later, and two new holes appear for each one plugged. We live in a time of deception. But the energy that sustains that deception is petering out, bit by bit.

Red Ice on altright.com: The Stockholm Terrorist Attack is Only the Beginning: Here we see the strange doublespeak of the Cathedral. People are unlikely to believe outright falsehoods, so a number of deceptions are used. Obedient and devout Cathedralites will tell you that there are no attacks in Sweden; if you bring up a specific attack, they will claim that it has nothing to do with immigration or just doesn’t matter. The key is not to deny the existence of such attacks or say that they did not happen, but to keep from discussing or thinking about them at all.

Hunter Wallace on altright.com: “The Alt-Right doesn’t believe in the concept of the ‘Free World.’”: we see here a confusion on the part of the alt-right. Trump was never the alt-right candidate, as the author of this article seems to think, and claiming that Trump was the alt-right candidate is, paradoxically a result of swallowing leftist propaganda about Trump! Notice how even this piece of Cathedral agitprop results in confusion on the alt-right when it gets past our radar. We wanted to believe that Trump was our man, so we believed that he was alt-right when the mainstream media told us so. Swallowing that belief has the consequence of creating division on the alt-right. What we need is to see Trump as a first step. And we can’t deny the realities of geopolitics, and the necessity of empire at the present time.

VDARE: Is “Trump Effect” Reversing American Worker Displacement, Illegal Influx?: we’re used to the mainstream media distorting and cherry-picking their statistics. But this points to a larger trend, which is this: the media attacks us through “sins of omission,” by not doing what they ought to do, even more than by doing outright evil.

The Atlantic: The Rise of the Christian Left in America: one thing that evil does when it senses that it is being found out is to put on some incidental, skin-deep trappings of good. The Left will co-opt traditional things like religion in order to provide some semblance of order and meaning, as a desperate bid to maintain its power over those who are beginning to see through it. Again, this is a sin of omission, with religion being a simple lifestyle choice like driving a Mini Cooper, and with everything significant about religion being removed.

”Britain Strips Jihadist of Passport Despite Supplying Weapons to His Islamist Group in Syria: much as it creates a hollow facsimile of religion in order to legitimize itself, the Cathedral also makes symbolic gestures to cover its vulgar realpolitik. Another instance of the same phenomenon, we see the magician making grand gestures with one hand while the other hand, the one you’re not watching, reaches into his pocket.

Jihad Watch: [Swedish] Truck jihadi had been in Swedish Security Service files: while we don’t want to scapegoat symptoms while ignoring the disease, it is useful to gather information that supports our claims, e.g. that diversity causes conflict. Sites like Jihad Watch, whatever their motive, can act as aggregators for ammunition of this kind. And the story here linked is a good study in more sins of omission, caused by social pressure. Why investigate a possible criminal if doing so will get you fired and blacklisted for “racism?”

Jew Among You: “A group of youths”: the media uses codewords to commit their sins of omission. We can reverse this, both by openly pointing it out, and by mocking it. “Should we let in more ‘youths’ from the Middle East?” By forcing an association between their codewords and the real deal, we can force them to change the language they’re using. When they are forced to change often enough, constantly creating new codephrases, their deception becomes impossible to maintain. People begin to sense that something is up.

RamzPaul: You Can’t Kill Or Censor An Idea: what ultimately brings down the Cathedral is the fact that, sorry guys, but the genie is out of the bottle. No amount of censorship, however subtle and sophisticated, can save the Cathedral from collapsing, because its foundations are rotten and crumbling.

Angry White Dude: We All Knew Something Like This Was Coming: The Trump “fiasco” was inevitable. He has to manage a global hegemonic system, not just his own country. The key is to insist on the correct domestic policies, with foreign policy a distant second.

Neocolonial: Deciphering Wormtongue: the phrase, “political correctness,” is wonderful because it gives a name to our enemy, thereby giving us a target. “Wormtongue,” for those speech codes that operate specifically by inversion, is another such word. These terms need not compete. Rather, they ought to proliferate. The more varied our terminology, the better.

Cernovich: Why the Fake News Is Losing: in case I haven’t driven home the point enough already, I’ll say it again: the Cathedral cannot maintain its control over thought and information against new technologies. The technologies in themselves do not save us, however, so it’s up to us to deliver the push.

Kid Strangelove on Mattforney.com: How Gamergate Leaked Into My Real Life: the time has long passed when deriding the alt-right as an “internet movement” had any merit. While it is important to do real-world activism, we must never forget that deriding something as an “internet phenomenon” is a cheap rhetorical trick that ignores the power that the internet has to shape the thoughtscape of our society.

Racism is Love, Racism Saves Lives, The Scientific Truth is Racist: reclaiming the word ‘racist’ ought to be high on our list of priorities. Inverting that which is already inverted leads to setting things right.

Stuart Schneiderman: America Is Back in the Game: “For Russia, the Syria move may represent a rude discovery that the new American president won’t be the pliant partner that the Kremlin had hoped for. The biggest change in Syria since President Barack Obama declined to take a similar military step there was a dramatic escalation in Russia’s presence on behalf of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.” Remember, the libertarian dream of isolationism is not possible at the moment. Trump won’t make it happen, and Trump himself is only a small step on the way back to health, sanity, and an organic civilization.

Diversity Is Chaos: Researchers from King’s College London have used a genetic scoring technique to predict reading performance throughout school years from DNA alone: another nail in the coffin of the left, we see that scientific insight into human differences is slowly, inexorably, ineluctably eating away at the foundations of egalitarianism.

Diversity Is Chaos: Marvel executive admits that emphasis on diversity has alienated readers: pursuant to the above, it is clear that, no matter how thorough the propaganda is, people can only swallow lies for so long. The more strident the agitprop becomes, the more transparent it becomes. It is only a matter of time, and what is falling must be pushed.

The imperative right now is to take advantage of the left’s present weakness and create long-lasting cultural changes. The key is to break their control over language and information.

    “Sadly, we have globalism and Bush 2.5 as our foreign and domestic policy.”

    Trump is an American phenomenon. Even the change of the name from Drumpf to Trump is very American. Only in America, for good and ill.

    Alt Right is pissed with the recent ‘betrayal’, but then Trump would be nothing without betrayal. He’s been about Deals, not Ideals. He’s played all sides and then some. He’s been all over the map his entire life. He has said everything, meant everything, meant nothing.
    He’s a phony but he can sometimes get excited enough to believe in whatever he is excited about… until the thrill runs out, and then he’s onto other stuff. Just look at his history with women. The ONLY way he could in 2016 was by connecting with the Deplorables, and their votes were indeed gold to him. But in office, they can’t do him any good anymore. The power is with Congress, Deep State, Wall Street, Pentagon, and etc, and they have no use for his nationalism-than-globalism.
    Also, Trump is a promoter, a showman, a circus master. He gets bored easily when he has to do nitty gritty stuff. He needs splash, pizzazz, once in a while, so why not lob some bombs at Syria? Fireworks. A bit of Kilgore in him that will blow up a village to go surfing. He has to sow his wild oates, which he has in endless supply.

    Howard Roarks, the men of unshakable conviction, exist in fantasy. Even if they did exist in reality, they win only in fantasy. In real life, they never win. Or, their victory comes with huge price. During the Soviet Era, the Soviet government was filled with men of power and privilege. They had the connections, dachas, and caviar. Who knows or cares about any of them now? They are all forgotten. Who, from the Soviet era, looms as a giant? Solzhenitsyn, who stuck to his truth. But what price did he have to pay. Gulag, persecution, exile. In the end, he won, but most people are not willing to pay that kind of price, not least because for every Solzhenitsyn who finally triumphed, 1000 others died in silence and in vain. NO ONE wants to pay that kind of price. Only in the Ayn-Randian universe does a man of iron principle like Roark defy, triumph, and realize his dream easy succession. The real world belongs to Gail Wynands, Tooeys, and Keatings. Those are the three basic types in the world of wealth and power.

    Some people compared Trump to Howard Roark, but he was more like Wynand. When push comes to shove, Trump folds and goes along, just like Wynand who realizes he hasn’t the will go all the way. All said and done, Wynand is all about wealth and connections. Without those, he is nothing. In contrast, Roark has the power of vision that his solid gold in his mind regardless of his condition in life. Trump is all about wealth, connections, and making deals. If he can’t do that, he has nowhere to go. And besides, democratic politics is about compromise with the Power. It’s not about dictatorial will, no matter noble it may be.
    Depressingly however, political compromise in the US means shilling out for the globalists. It’s one thing to compromise for the good of the people but quite another when the compromise mainly serves the GLOB elites. When FDR came up with New Deal, he made compromises with labor, not with the capitalist elites. But labor isn’t powerful enough to exert the kind of pressure necessary to tear Trump away from the GLOB.
    As for military guys, some of them just want ANY excuse to play ball. They see it as a sports. Any reason to play the game and fight the ‘enemy’. Always a need for one.
    Or maybe, Trump is thinking of the WWII option. It’s been said that WWII, more than the New Deal, ended the Great Depression. FDR’s economic theory came down to creating the military-industrial complex. As the US mainland is free from attack, what does it matter if the US war machine goes into high gear and creates jobs and makes bombs to destroy other nations? Under FDR, guns were butter.

    Trump is a phenom, and he reveled in the campaign. That was his element. Entertainer, showman, comedian, provocateur, clown, big personality, salesman, demagogue, and etc. He’s been promoting fights and running a TV Show. But when it comes to running something like government, he’s at a loss. Trump is used to running his own businesses. Also, anything in business can be solved with money and settlements. Profits are the only thing that matters in business. In government, there are Other Interests, and some of these are tribal, ideological, and personal, and Trump cannot solve this problem by greasing hands.
    Also, Deep State are different from politicians. Trump once said politicians came to him for handouts, and that’s all that most politicians or prostitucians are interested in. For them DC is Hollywood for ‘ugly people’. It’s their ticket to the Good Life and Respectability. But Deep State operatives, globo-tribalists, and entrenched ideologues are different. Some of them care about the power, not the money. Some of them are ideologues and grand visions. And others got more money than Trump and can’t be bought.
    So, Trump must be flustered dealing with these types. They are unlike any other people he’d worked with before. They have their own agendas and try to bend Trump to their will. Money cannot solve his problems with them. And on most things, they are more informed than Trump even if they twist the facts to push the agenda, as with Syria.

    This Trump phenom is symptomatic of America as a spectacular but silly country. The US reinvents everything into a fantasy, a circus, a new religion. Mormonism is almost proto-Hollywood in its cheesy and Pirates-of-Penzance-like reinvention of the Bible. Mormonism’s combination of opportunism & materialism AND puritanism & moralism is part of the kitschy delusion. Hollywood reinvented Christianity with ET with an outerspace messiah who befriends lonely children, dies, is resurrected, and returns to heaven. All the western mythology(and then some) was reinvented as STAR WARS. And the themes of revolution and radicalism of the 20th century was reinvented into a Calvin Klein fantasy of MATRIX.
    The Founding Fathers were lately reinvented as a bunch of rappers.
    So, Trump’s nationalism is another fantasy, a show, a musical. It’s not the real thing but a reinvention worthy for Las Vegas extravaganza. Trump has real power, but he cannot be taken seriously or soberly. He has to be approached as a Cecil B. DeMille production. He’s the santa or the fake santa of nationalism, but then, is there such a thing as a real santa? Hoping for a true nationalist in Trump is like wishing that a store santa is the real thing. Given the system that allowed his rise, real nationalism is hard to come by.

    http://www.freakingnews.com/pictures/125500/Donald-Trump-as-Moses-125793.jpg

    Trump pulled off a fun opening act as the would-be-Moses of the Deplorables, but the whole idea now seems rather silly. Trump as the deliverer? The man most famous for saying ‘you’re fired’ is going to create an America where everyone is hired. LOL.
    But even if there is some sincerity in Trump as leader of long-forgotten Deplorables, the question is how far is he willing to go even if he succeeds on the economic front? After all, there were two Moses in the movie. There was Moses I, the Egyptian who served the empire. And Moses II, the one who regained his identity and led his people to the Promised Land.

    Trump’s vision doesn’t go beyond Moses I. In other words, he remains the servant of the Empire, the Glob. And his nationalism is really a means to serve the GLOB even better.
    Moses I defies the System and pushes ‘reforms’ that lead to better treatment for slaves, better food, and more human conditions. He sees it as a kind of triumph of justice, and it is. He has improved the lot of the Jewish slaves, but the fact is they remain slaves, and he is still serving the Pharaoh. If anything, one could say he has empowered the empire even more by making the slaves more productive, more hardworking, and improved in morale. So, paradoxically, his justice for the slaves has made the tyranny over them even more powerful. After all, an empire needs hard workers. (Communism failed in part because work ethic crumbled.)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eVIJME3JW8

    Thus the moral victory of Moses I was delusional. He did bring some measure of justice to the slaves, but turning them into better and more willing workers, he has also empowered the Egyptian Empire that will conquer and enslave more peoples. The slaves were part of something bigger. They were just cogs in the system.

    For Moses to truly free the slaves, he must become Moses II, the man who awakens to his true identity and embarks on the exodus to lead his people from bondage. As long as the empire exists, Jews will just be slaves and servants to it no matter how much their lot is improved with better working conditions and better food. (Likewise, Hitler fattened Germany up in the 30s to embark on empire. Had he improved the lives of Germans for the sake of German nation itself, he would have been a decent leader. But his mind was infected with dream of empire, and that meant the Germans, once made strong and healthy again, would be used as cannon fodder to expand the empire. But if Hitler pursued his own mad dreams, Trump is beholden to the Imperial Vision of the Anglo-Zionists who are intoxicate with power and hegemony like college coaches with winning the Rose Bowl.) Trump isn’t up to playing Moses II, and he knows it, and we know it. And even if he wanted to, it’s not possible under the current system.

    So, we really need to think about the ultimate meaning and worth of Trumpian nationalism. If it’s not true nationalism, what is it? Is it just a means to improve the morale, productivity, and patriotism of Americans so that they can be harnessed to serve the Empire better? After all, there has been an erosion of patriotism under Bush and Obama. Bush’s wars even made Conservatives feel sorry they supported him. Obama’s homo-worshiping supporters do not make red blooded patriots who will not only chant USA USA USA but fight and die for the empire. Most people in the US military didn’t want to die for Obama.
    Without the gungho support of Red State America, the empire seems ever wobbly, all head and no body, as the body feels disconnected to the head that is all about homos and trannies in the military.

    So, Trump is useful for recharging patriotism and national pride among white Americans. But is it about national independence from globalism/empire(like how the US was founded in the first place) OR is it about national servitude to the empire? “Trump fattened you real good and returned you back to health. USA USA USA. Now, go out and win one for the globber.”

    Trump defies the globalist Pharaoh only to serve him better. He brings back American pride and optimism… but he doesn’t break the chains that holds the US in bondage to the GLOB. US may be the lone superpower, but there is a power bigger than the US. The GLOB is a made up of networks from US to Canada to EU to Australia to Japan to China to Latin America, and etc. It is the world of super-globalist-elites, the superpower over the superpower. The GLOB plays the entire world. It’s like one horse among those pulling a carriage maybe the biggest and strongest. The super-power horse. So, it is the biggest power? No, there is a power above it: the combined energies of all the horses harnessed by the rider who hold the reins. America is the biggest and strongest horse of the GLOB but one of many horses harnessed together to stampede around the world.

    Trump is the man to demand better treatment for the big horse. Better food and new horse-shoes. But he’s not the one to cut the horse loose and ride it to freedom like in ELECTRIC HORSEMAN. In the end, it must remain a WAR HORSE.

    BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI, which came out one yr after TEN COMMANDMENTS, tell more or less the same moral tale. British soldiers are held captive, and the commander Nicholson(Guinness) is an honorable and courageous man. He has a deep sense of responsibility for all his men, and he expects humane treatment for all of them.
    Japanese want to use them for slave labor to build a bridge. And the Saito promises good treatment for Nicholson and officers IF they collaborate with Japanese in working prisoners like slaves. Nicholson refuses and pays a heavy price, and his men appreciate his defiance and sabotage the work until Saito relents and promises humane treatment to all the men. So, like Moses I, Nicholson triumphs and earns a measure of justice for his men.

    The irony is that, with improve productivity and morale, the men are serving the Japanese Empire, the evil enemy, even better than they might have otherwise. But Nicholson so savors his moral victory over Saito and the improved lot of his men that he becomes blind to the larger context of what’s happening. No matter what his men do — work as slaves treated inhumanly or prison-laborers treated well — , they are serving the Japanese war machine to expand, kill more innocents, and kill more British soldiers. (But then, Nicholson, despite his concern for his men, is first and foremost, a man of hierarchy and blinded by class distinctions and all their vanities, which makes one wonder if he was motivated more by personal pride or morality.)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXdycEK_38Y

    In the end, Nicholson does come to his senses and blows up the bridge that was built by his men with great effort. However magnificent it is, it was built to serve the Japanese Empire.
    Blowing up the bridge is the only way he can free himself and his men from the Japanese empire.
    And in the TEN COMMANDMENTS, Moses is truly the deliverer of his people ONLY WHEN the split-sea-bridge is closed between his people and the Egyptians.
    You can’t be part of an empire and still be free. The chains must be broken. Bridge must blow, the sea must close.

    In the case of the US, breaking the chains of empire is tricky. When Vietnam and Algeria threw out the French(and when Indians kicked out the Brits), it was nations yearning to be free and cutting the chains of imperialism. Those under imperial power can do this by sending the imperialists home.
    But US is the main imperial power in the world. Why would the US empire want to cut off the chains when it is the master over vassal states? America owns the chains.
    The reasons are threefold. (1) Empire is morally dubious, for both master power and servant nations. (2) Empire is costly and often bloody, and sometimes risks something like WWI (3) The current empire is less about American domination than the Glob domination over the US. The GLOB is a worldwide network. US is its main asset but the US is only of the its assets. So, the American Empire is really part of a bigger empire. Soros and his ilk play the whole world. Trans-national corporations have no loyalty to any nation. It’s all about those at the top, and the elites of the world now attend same schools — Harvard and Yale — and plot the helot-ization of all peoples. GLOB has zero interest at heart when it comes to most Americans. If anything, the GLOB sees all nationals as replaceables.

    Anyway, for there be true freedom, we need someone to blow up the bridge or close the sea.
    There can no half-measures, like the guy finds out in PRINCE OF THE CITY. The poison has to be purged completely, and globalism is this vile evil force in the world. It is not good ole internationalism, a good thing that’s about various nations trading and respecting one another’s sovereign autonomy. Globalism is about the erasure of all borders, all identities, all sovereignties. It is about mass amnesia, homomania as world religion, endless Wars for Israel, Pentagon’s insatiable hunt for new crises, demographic imperialism, and degradation of all native rooted identities and cultures(with the exception of Israel). Globalism is evil and must go. Trump is not the one to blow up the bridge. He will play showbiz version of Moses I but not Moses II who came to realize that the only way Jews can be free is to make a clean break with the Egyptians.

    Trump is fun and made a big splash and ruffled feathers, but I think the most he can offer is the hope of Deplorables being turned into good workers again so as to become better minions of the Empire. One thing for sure, Trump is not a serious man, nor should he be approached as such. He has to be seen for what he is. The hustler who plays everyone. To be upset with Trump is to be upset that one’s playboy father is cheating on the mother.

    The true nationalist? He will come up with a way to blow up the bridge.

    • The ONLY way he could in 2016 was by connecting with the Deplorables, and their votes were indeed gold to him. But in office, they can’t do him any good anymore. The power is with Congress, Deep State, Wall Street, Pentagon, and etc, and they have no use for his nationalism-than-globalism.

      He may be betting he will not need their votes in 2020. However, he also seems to understand how much the populist vote put him in power. My supposition is that he wants nothing to do with Washington, and is playing all of them by keeping them guessing, while steadily advancing his domestic agenda.

    • Pseudonymous says:

      Donald Trump was, is, and always will be the consummate power player. Donald Trump is playing the “game of thrones” to be king, to be CEO-dictator of the greatest military Power in the world. And if Trump succeeds, he will indeed be forever remembered as a great man (a la Carlyle), satisfying his imperative to be glorified and remembered, and satisfying his imperative for his heir to succeed him as emperor (whether of Trump Org or of USG). He is an entertainer, showman, comedian, provocateur, clown, big personality, salesman, and demagogue to the extent that he needs to be to serve his ultimate purpose.

      And if he fails, he’ll be Nixon’d, at best, or Romanov’d, at worst.
