CultState| You are more than your identity
An interesting log I’ve stumbled upon:
The Council on Foreign Relations and Goldman Sachs have made their support of Hilary Clinton very clear. Google’s search engine is trying to keep such support a secret. Saudi Arabia’s massive influence over oil markets and petrodollar stability, however, doesn’t give them the power to be overt in such support:
Based on this this fear, I would like to propose an idea called the shadow emperor hedge.
Below is a chart providing a high-level view of the countries that spend the most on defense.
What we see is a very significant gap for other powers to spend as much as America does on defense. This is mostly due to America controlling and protecting the interests of the reserve currency.
Next, I will point out that, with the passing of the Citizens United ruling, corporations are allowed to spend as much as they want to influence American elections. Saudi Arabia has made it very clear that clean energy technology and fracking are significant threats to its power. In fact, they’ve already utilized Citizens United to funded opposition to Democratic and Republican senators in Missouri and Wisconsin.
Foreign powers will utilize Citizens United to pay tech companies to steer the American electorate into supporting state policies that only benefit the foreign powers. This allows a foreign power to achieve influence over their regional peers without having to increase defense spending since American military assets are steered via state policies.
As long as American military spending is geared towards reserve currency preservation, the marriage between foreign powers, tech media, and Citizens United will flourish.
This is not a popular topic. In most Western countries, this is not even a legal topic. Regardless of moral and political positioning, this is an inevitable topic.
The cabal responsible for the global industrial balance of production and consumption, powered by Saudi oil consumption, (which, in turn, is powered by recycling petrodollars through British and United States banking systems [which, in turn, is enforced upon OPEC oil producers by American military projection]) is fragmenting. The Russians have been involved in a campaign of carving up and laying claim to critical bottlenecks of oil consumption while expanding their own oil exports to China. The mythos of environmentalism, born in the 1960s, has evolved into an influential force, directing official policy in developed countries and the economic perception of their consumers to bypass the cabal altogether. Developing nations are asserting their own authority in regional matters via land grabs and nuclear proliferation. As I have told a friend at Credit Suisse eight years ago: “We are entering a Neo-Alexandrian world.”
Alexander of Macedonia wasn’t a great leader because history says so. Alexander managed to bind hundreds of tribes, each with their own language, ethos, culture, religion, and economic pressures, to his goal. He carved a path from the Mediterranean to India (and funneled nearly all of the gold from Mesopotamian antiquity into Europe) in the world’s first attempt at aggressive globalism. His grand ambitions were dashed by simple human needs: _His soldiers went on strike, citing a desire to reconnect with loved ones and their increasing skepticism of Alexander and his willingness to blur cultural identities._
There have been many more attempts at globalism since Alexander, all of which have subsequently reduced the emotional buy-in required to accept the destruction of one’s cultural identity. However, once the industrial age came to fruition, the ability to overcome previously insurmountable cultural squabbles became cheaper and easier, mostly due to mass media. With this technology, cultural perceptions could be homogenized across hundreds of millions of people, ensuring their economic actions were within a range of acceptable behavior. However, with every increase in globalism, there has been countercultural reactions obsessed with restoring a primal understanding of identity that doesn’t require years of education and propaganda to comprehend. The high cost of normalizing globalist culture (perpetual reinvention of new communication mediums to create a generation’s worth of authenticity) eventually hits diminishing returns because of this identity impulse. It appears that human DNA has several million years of defenses to invoke emotionally convincing skepticism of mass identity destruction, despite the best intentions of the learned and the powerful.
Assuming that these unverified assumptions of human neurosociology are completely incorrect, we still live in a world where the elite absolutely rely on the leverage provided by the labor arbitrage that only globalism (and floating exchange rates) can provide. Take the European Union, for example. Each member of the European Union can print bonds in their nation’s name, but they cannot print currency to pay the coupon of those bonds. Furthermore, these nations cannot raise their taxes to pay the coupon either, as they are high-tax socialist paradises, thus, any increase in taxes will cut directly into consumption, which directly affects their imports/export agreements. There is only one way in which European nations can pay off these coupon: labor arbitrage.
Importing massive amounts of cheaper immigrants, especially in export-heavy nations like Sweden and Germany, is a conceit that Europe must now follow the American/Ford model of labor arbitrage: Import labor to do that which is too complex to outsource, and then outsource the rest. In short, Europe is engaging in a variation of Gresham’s Law regarding labor: Hoard complexity, liquefy simplicity. That means human organizations have a propensity to hoard those who can resolve complexity and expend those who are tasked to resolve simplicity. The profits generated from cheap labor arbitrage will extend the politically popular (and expensive) socialist policies of human care that an export nation must provide to be competitive. As gains in labor arbitrage occur, tax revenue increase, and stable bond issuance can increase to allow socialist nations to engage in production expansion. (Taxation being collateral) The loyal socialists who labored for years are replaced by a configuration of cheaper labor. Their complaints and frustrations are dismissed as nothing more than racist reactions or tone deaf nationalism since the imported labor heralds from a variety of different races and/or nationalities.
The inevitable response to this automatic dismissal is populist nationalism. To counter this evolution, the Americans have developed a very effective model in destroying populist nationalism when they engaged in their transition to global labor arbitrage back in the 1960s. The American solution is that as long as those who benefit from the labor arbitrage (Fortune 500s, bond issuers, and Wall Street) are allowed to invest in and/or financially control media outlets, then nationalist impulses can be defused without unpopular and overt government heavy-handedness. How? In this setup, for-profit news and clickbait peddlers are driven by profit motive that undermines, waters down, harasses, lies about, and ultimately destroys countercultural nationalist upstarts. This profit motive is very powerful and has achieved countless victories over the past ten years.
I will now going to give you the way to counter that profit motive.
During World War 2, the Europeans decided it would be hilarious if they blew themselves up. As a result, they shipped most of their highly coveted gold to America, (the one place unscathed by the war) specifically, to the bedrock underneath Manhattan currently manned by robotic palate pushers owned by JP Morgan and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. In fact, 98% of the gold owned by the Federal Reserve system is actually owned by Europe. (Over a thousand years of gold conquest led by Alexander, the Romans, the Conquistadors, and the Imperialists) America has since refused multiple times to return this gold upon request to their various owners… while simultaneously pushing the narrative that gold is barbarous relic. (If it was so barbarous, why hold on to it so desperately, America?) Because of this arrangement, there is a way to undermine the mass media anti-nationalism profit motive with the blessing of globalist overseers: Each European nationalist movement must strike multiple deals with the Federal Reserve. When those nationalists come to power, they will enact quotas and legal changes to alter national import/export mechanisms, (driven entirely by Federal Reserve policy objectives) those European nationalists will be allowed to easily repatriate their gold to bypass and undermine Brussels currency issuance limitations. In essence, European nationalism can be used to destroy the European Union with blessing from the Federal Reserve.
The Neo-Alexandrian world I had mentioned in 2008 to my friend is one in which nationalism becomes more profitable to the individual nation than continued participation in globalism. This model will achieve initial gains and advantages for first movers, leaving the remaining globalist bloc to operate without their full support. This will profoundly affect global trade and, in desperation, second-tier members of the globalist bloc will nationalize, triggering in a cascade of nationalization for the remaining members. The military and technological advantage of superstates and national unions will diminish as intelligence gathering will be made more expensive due to the subsequent regionalizations of the Internet, depriving the NSA and GCHQ of their current advantage. Hundreds of tribes will return and we will be living in a world in which only an Alexander can understand and make sense of.
The Internet has allowed anyone to partake in the massive coordination of human effort that has been historically reserved for Pharaohs… and the Pharaohs are upset that their monopoly on human effort has competition. This impulse to engage in “spontaneous global organization“ is the most promising aspect of the Internet, however, various channels that frequently nurture such organization have been under attack. Here is a list of fronts within the Pharaoh’s war against spontaneous global organization:
One might argue that social media allows for spontaneous global organization, which is true. Therefore, I should refine my definition to eliminate confusion. There are certain “spontaneous” organizational manifestations that are authorized, such as the entirely predictable schema of identity politics. (Black vs. White, Male vs. Female, Red vs. Blue, and other examples of false dichotomy) These breeds of schema utilize a considerable amount of effort to appear spontaneous and global, but this is nothing more than hacking morality via minimal effort photo opportunities. With the heavy individual curation of social media to promote filter bubbles and echo chambers, social media exacerbates the illusion that the content one experiences is part of a larger spontaneous global organization when, in reality, it is not.
The spontaneous global organization I am speaking of does not engage in identity warfare. In fact, the first thing such organizations sacrifice is identity. This provides a significant challenge for the post-war leadership as their entire model of rule requires the infinite exploitation of identity. Therefore, it will be important to develop sociological and governance theorems that explore how rule of law can be established in a world where labor and creativity can spontaneously appear and then vaporize. Otherwise, the powers that be will continue to waste energy and assets in suppressing the culmination of such a world.
Continental National Socialism is the organizational method that emerges from the confluence of Swiss banking influence, German export dominance, and the remnants of French and Dutch colonial power suckling off of British and American geopolitical activity. This, of course, is not the widely held definition and for those who are not American, it’s important to understand the American reactionary’s love affair with what they perceive to be Continental National Socialism.
For our American reactionary “friends” (I.E.: The people we have to endure because we are all forced onto one planet), Continental National Socialism is believed to be a perfect utopia where all ills go away and people are magically endowed with rights and protections to live as carefree high-brow artists and critical thinkers forever. This is not a recent belief. This perception is a core tenet of American reactionary culture despite their insistence to change masks every ten years.
The British raised concerns over such ambitions from Brussels about six months ago on May 10th, 2015. This warning was punctuated by the Rotterdam rape storm. The pro-feminism, pro-social justice media narrative has been working overtime to suppress the propagation of Rotterdam-like events. They have successfully refused to make any mention about the large volume of rapes by immigrants infecting Sweden since a wave of military-aged Middle Eastern males entered their countries en masse.
France has previously felt the sting of its future cheap labor supply in 2005 and this week, they’ve felt it again. They gave a silent nod to French Nationalist Marine Le Pen by shutting down their borders in response to recent terrorist attacks, but even this is just a dog-and-pony show.
France is a protectionist organization that promotes political affiliates and union votes. This arrangement will not be able to hold in the face of Brussels and their desire to implement the American labor model (cheap immigrants for what cannot be outsourced) across Europe. France has already seen the benefits of outsourcing government, defense, and manufacturing contracts and the time is coming to extrapolate this across their entire economy.
Bastions of Continental National Socialism such as France have relied on deep levels of union political integration since the end of World War 2. However, the profit model such unions have relied on required post-war construction growth. That cannot compete against the model of wage stagnation and international labor arbitrage. Muslim immigrants are essential for Europe’s transition into wage stagnation, so not only are they the vanguard of injecting Islamic culture into Europe, they are also the front line of injecting American capitalism as well.
Through mass cheap labor, Europe will get the wage stagnation they desperately need to mitigate the previous period of socialist extravagance attached to Euro valuations. This will transform the current European assisted class into a permanently semi-employed dependent class. The nature of this dependency will be ideally expressed as ritual election season teeth-grinding as one generation of worker blends into a cheaper generation of worker. However, that dependency presents opportunities to revitalize 1930s socialism via the nationalization of labor, especially in countries that have few opportunities with international labor arbitrage.
The fall of Continental National Socialism has been passionately resisted by American reactionaries for their entire ideological livelihood. It’s almost a rite of passage among these types to say “I wish we were more like Europe.“ As it turns out, they might get their wish after all.
When the music industry was undermined by file distribution software, people who downloaded files were called terrorists.
When the news industry was under attack from social media, people who didn’t blindly recite The Narrative® were called terrorists.
When the financial industry melted down in 2008 and BitCoin rose to challenge central banking, people who used them were called terrorists.
When the university industry came under attack due to self-learning programs on the Internet, people who were capable of teaching themselves were called terrorists.
When the telecom industry comes under attack due to widespread usage of open source streaming platforms, those people who live stream will be called terrorists.
When the labor industry can no longer compete against an autonomous robotic workforce, those people who use them will be called terrorists.
If you adapt to the destruction of these monopolies and survive, you are a terrorist. If you cling to the old ways and suffer, you are a good citizen.
Decades of social media and the mass narcissism that predates it has created a technopriest caste that aggressively seeks opportunities to summon their entire cathedral to banish heretics. Any attempt to reason with these zealots requires an initial payment of your public image as you will get branded as a misogynist, racist, and privileged. That’s a fairly heavy buy-in… but only if you still believe in old public relations. ProteinWorld’s trolling of is demonstrating a radically new brand of public relations: if analyzing and penetrating filter bubbles becomes too expensive, provoke the filter bubble and steer its reaction for your benefit. Here’s how it works.
Let’s say you sell product A that is designed for an approximation of group X. Figuring out where group X is located and how to reach them is expensive. There is also an inherent group Y that will not only absolutely hate product A, but will go out of their way to derail you. More often than not, group Y doesn’t actually hate product A, but they hate the idea that the group X that they do hate might have a new tool in their ideological war with group Y. Group Y will then engage in a Bush-style preemptive attack to minimize the perceived benefits of product A as a means of dehumanizing group X.
This dynamic mire of ideological petulance, henceforth known as the background ideological war, (BIW) is traditionally handled by public relations teams who try to carefully tiptoe around these landmines as they appear. In the old public relations, spending a tremendous amount of money on market discovery and public relations is the only way to avoid this outcome In the new public relations, you realize that this BIW exists within all actions of the market. Instead of trying to find out who is in group X and who is in group Y in advance, you release your product and then intentionally irritate the first person who expresses displeasure of product A on social media.
The person who expresses displeasure is familiar with the BIW and has, most likely, already established lines and bounties regarding the rules of engagement. That person might not have identified as group Y, but that is not important since, due to the mechanics of social media, that person will instinctively put out the klaxon call designed to attract group Y. (This impulse is traditionally known as “raising awareness”, which is the postmodernists version of praying to nonexistent deities) The old public relations believes this approach to be a problem. The new public relations knows this is the approach saves money, time, and has far greater efficiency in spurring consumption.
Group Y will never be your customers to begin with because they have already associated it with the BIW long before you even got around to making product A. In fact, Group Y and group X might have already self-isolated from one another due to the BIW. By irritating group Y, more of group Y will join in and engage in their daily social media outrage ritual of retweeting, blogging, public shaming, and photoshop work. This outrage props up your SEO, your trending ranking, and your overall presence at a minimal cost.
As the outrage circulates, fringe members of group X will catch wind of this and rally around your product as a newest front in the BIW. They’ll sound their klaxon call and attract gradually more moderate members that align with their filter bubble. Group X will reveal themselves by self-organizing in relation to your product.
As the outrage permeates the internet, all of it gets logged, analyzed for sentiment, and categorized in ways that allow your company to pick up the pieces afterwards. Instead of trying to anticipate who your market it, you exploit the BIW to force the market to self-organize in relation to your product and then analyze that self-organization to discover your markets.
An unspoken and unexplored idea that powers this blog is a configuration of asset exchange I am calling petrocurrency mercantilism. This concept has allowed me to accurately predict geopolitical and macroeconomic events since 2005. So what is petrocurrency mercantilism?
It’s when a national bank and an energy producer collude to generate artificial demand for a currency at the expense of the purchasing power of other currencies. The flowchart below shows how it all works.
lntersectionality is the admission that self-identiﬁed identities are fundamentally incapable of describing the totality of oppression. This means that self-identiﬁed identities are Godelian sets: they are incomplete but consistent theories that can never encapsulate their own inversions.
lntersectionality only deﬁnes inversions by relation, which is to say the framework intersectionality provides to measure identity inversions can only be described by what has been previously self-identiﬁed. Thus, no inversions can even exist within intersectionality unless at least three identities have been established.
For example, the feminist and the panda identities intersect in a place that the black identity can no longer predict or describe oppression. (Additionally, if identity 1 and 2 intersect, the non-intersecting regions are not treated as inversions of one another. They are treated as their own identity.) This is a problem for intersectionality because subjective inversions can be equally described as a union between two identity sets. (In this case, it is a union of feminist and panda identities) This implicit interchangeability of function means that a unioned set is both an inversion (Something non-unioned identities can never understand) and an identity at the same exact time. This means that identities and their inversions can be experienced by the same person in parallel.
Once we introduce an extraneous identity that has no intersections, we discover that the subjective inversion requirement is inaccurate. Alter all, the black identity can never predict or describe oppression the way this extraneous identity can, which qualifies this extraneous identity as an inversion of the black identity. This is also true for the panda and the feminist identity. This means the extraneous identity is part of an identity (remember, inversions = identities) while being its own inversion at the same time.
Therefore, in the strive for completeness, intersectionality renders itself inconsistent.
Let theories be a set of theorems.
Let a theorem be a set of proofs that predict and detect oppression.
Let intersectionality imply inversions (!) to be:
Let A, C, D be overlapping theories, thus:
Let D = B ∩ C
Let E = C ∩ A
Let F = A ∩ B
Thus, inversions can be defined as:
!A = (A ∩ B)c ∩ C
!B = (B ∩ C)c ∩ A
!C = (C ∩ A)c ∩ B
!A = D
!B = E
!C = F
(A ∩ B)c ∩ C = B ∩ C
(B ∩ C)c ∩ A = C ∩ A
(C ∩ A)c ∩ B = A ∩ B
This is logically false since B ∩ C contains not just (A ∩ B)c ∩ C, but also A ∩ B ∩ C.
Intersectionality’s implications of inversion, then, is false.
To further demonstrate the point, let X be a different theory of oppression that has no intersecting theorems. Thus:
Ø = X ∩ A
Ø = X ∩ B
Ø = X ∩ C
Ø = X ∩ D
Ø = X ∩ E
Ø = X ∩ F
X ∉ B ∩ C
X ∉ C ∩ A
X ∉ A ∩ B
However, due to the second rule of inversion, X is part of all inversions. Thus:
!A = D
Ø = X ∩ D
Ø = X ∩ (B ∩ C)
!A = (A ∩ B)c ∩ C
Ø = X ∩ !A
Ø = X ∩ (A ∩ B)c ∩ C
Is a false statement.
