Symbol Worship

The psychological phenomenon for seeing faces in clouds is called pareidolia. When prisoners are isolated in their cells, they come across a related event called the prisoner’s cinema, which results in them extracting a social context from the lights and halos they see. The mind will force itself to see social data even when there is none. This is the bias that science desperately tries, and usually fails, to overcome.

What happens when people are deprived of a deity? The conclusion is the same: They will see hallucinations of godliness. Instead of worshiping the symbols that previous powers have accumulated, they will invent new ones and worship those. Instead of crying about the mistreatment of some long forgotten yet holy people they’ve been told to identify with, they will identify with another social context and cry about its mistreatment.

This impulse to consolidate social relevance into a single symbol is explored and codified very heavily in a religion to the point of ritual, but just because you eschew a formal religion does not mean you’ve overcome the impulse. In fact, more often than not, it leaves you even more susceptible to worshiping a symbol over the reality it represents.

Our entire political system depends on the radical left never coming to this conclusion.

Karl Marx is a blood relative of the Rothschilds.

That awkward moment when you find out that Karl Marx, the architect of modern equality, is a member of the Rothschild bloodline, the architects of modern international banking.

Every Single Social Justice Crusade Helps The Oligarchy

Redistribution of wealth means to confiscate the assets of the weakest of the upper class (who are not savvy enough to buy legal protections against or bypass government force) into the lower classes so that they can spend their new-found income stream on the elite who dominate price controls.

Multiculturalism is a religion that teaches us that pre-Industrial non-Europeans are happy to work fourteen hour days in monotonous factory jobs or hard manual labor to produce cheap access to the basic goods that prop up post-Industrial European societies.

Identity politics is the modern tactic of “divide and conquer”.  The local concerns of one powerless group that can be spun to be antithetic to the local concerns of another powerless group.  As long as the powerless groups believe this, they will never unify against a common enemy.

Environmentalism is the religion that only the West is wise enough to wield the power of industrial growth and everyone else is too greedy or short-sighted to consume their own resources.

Equality is a conservative religion that declares human beings to be equally interchangeable widgets/processes within an industrial context.  From this belief, creative efforts can be extracted from the human without having to acknowledge tribal impulses.  The end result is that the powerless manage their creative potential in relation to the industrial context, resulting in minimal administrative effort for the elite.

Nationalized healthcare is the theory that subsidizing the poor with taxpayer money so they can afford insurance means that insurance companies won’t try to use the poor as human shields when they raise rates arbitrarily to access more taxpayer money.

Progressive Dependencies: Petrodollar and Exporting Inflation

As political materialism compels the United States to expand credit and domestic spending, the USD inflates.  This causes foreign nations to inflate their currency as well to lower the cost of their exports so Americans can continue purchasing exported goods with the now weaker USD. This process is a death spiral that saps wealth from America, first by destroying the purchasing power of the dollar, and again by driving the price of labor worldwide to even lower prices, allowing manufacturing (and now many services) to relocate abroad. This mechanism has been the primary cause of the tremendous wealth gains the rich have received since the 1970s.

Since the 1860s, there have been many attempts to “modernize” the world. This pressure comes from industrial age titans (and the banking cartels who promote inflation to justify their position) seeking new markets to emulate previous growth and maintain the progressive narrative that “the future is always better.” However, societies that have never had an industrial revolution cannot consume industrial age goods profitably.  Therefore, the only option left is to transfer wealth from the original industrial nations into these post-Iron Age societies so that they will demand the goods of the industrial age titans. The petrodollar (Needing USD to buy the oil that powers the infrastructure to get your labor modernized) and exporting inflation (race-to-the-bottom wages for said labor) are the vehicles for that transference.

The moral smoke screen for this entire operation since the 1940s has been the “religion of equality” where the “noble savages” who have failed to demonstrate a technological mastery over nature have “so much wisdom to teach us” while previously successful industrial societies are “evil, racist, imperialists who need to atone.” This guilt-based narrative is the lash that forces compliance of even the most destabilizing of immigration policies, union destruction, tax reforms, corporate bailouts, identity politics, and every other manifestation of the “progressive agenda“.

Progressive Dependencies: Petrodollar and Exporting Inflation

Don’t let the environmentalist narrative and the promises of alternative energy confuse you. Without foreign oil consumption, progressives would be unable to fund their socialist utopia.  Not only have time-saving machines allowed for the end of slavery and the rise of feminism, they have also magnified the shell game of financial capitalism, causing the “liberated” demographics to be the permanent vanguard of the financial elite.

The Theory of Fracturing Monocultures

Preface

The Internet has allowed a person to decouple their information experience  from their physical characteristics. For example, a tall, white American male of heterosexual preference can legitimately create a persona of a short, black Nigerian female of homosexual preference and as long as he can explain what such an identity means to him, then others will as well because there are no other points of reference to utilize.  As a result of this, a tremendous explosion of identity-oriented relationships have compelled people to accept the self-identification of another, regardless of other contributing factors of identity. Everyone on the internet is an identity extremist. In this case study, I will put forth a theory on how to fracture a monoculture so that it is trapped in a state of diminishing returns.

Actors: /pol/

First, we shall examine an identity known as /pol/. /pol/ is a political board on 4chan. People who self-identify as European nationalist (and related identities) as well as those who oppose such views tend to congregate there. The structure of the communication is just as important as the communication itself. It is anonymous by default. There are no user accounts and no history of usage as contributions to the board ultimately get deleted after a short time. Any voluntary personal details can be changed on a per post basis. The structure of communication allows for an extremely flexible expression of self-identification, and ironically, the mass amount of participants of the board rarely deviate from a European nationalist identity.

The only people who exploit said flexibility are those who opposed to the European nationalist identity. Very commonly, threads are derailed, content will be intentionally pushed off of the main page, and off-topic threads quickly dominate the content space.  This results in perpetual agitation of the main community. However, because of their adherence to free speech, they refuse to fix this and rarely issue bans even upon the most coordinated attempts of agitation. The agitation does not provide any significant criteria for education or conversion and, instead, is rooted in achieving identity revenge and low-hanging social justice.

This fixation comes from the European nationalist identity being considered the most evil and disgusting of all identities since the rise of globalism. Because of this permanent friction, the European nationalist identity doubles down and takes a permanently defensive position, certain that at every possible moment, an agitator will very overtly attempt to provoke him because of his identity preference. Paranoia dominates the typical exchange, but when self-identity is expressed and mutually appreciated, the participants resonate in a much more meaningful fashion. They generally have collective enemies, (the internationalist Jewish banking system) collective heroes, (Military conquerors) collective fears, (Heritage displacement) and collective utopias. (Homogeneity)

In short, in order for someone to embrace a self-identification that the entirety of western civilization has spent the last 70 years actively demonizing and, in most cases, have made illegal, there must be excessively compelling reasons for one to participate that go beyond the typical polemics and knee-jerk assumptions third-party observers are trained to repeat.

Actors: Pixel-based Feminism

In addition to allowing illegal and morally reprehensible self-identifications, the Internet also contains politically sponsored and morally righteous self-identifications as well. Pixel-based Feminism is a self-identification where one engages in the expressions of female supremacy through electronic mediums. (Supremacy of their current socioeconomic position, not in the absolutist sense) It has a massive social support network spanning high-traffic blog sites, content propagators, and forums that are highly identity-oriented. The structure of communication is based largely on point systems for social status. Views, followers, upvotes, comments, downloads, retweets, favorites, and many other arbitrary metrics are used isolate and deeply quantify the value of one person over another.

The primary way to game this economic system is identity consolidation where anything that provides bombastic worship for female supremacy is considered good, while anything that does not is considered worthy of a fatwa. This incredibly simple consolidation is intuitive even to the newest of participants. Ironically, this self-identity has deep historical roots utilizing the most flexible interpretations of identity politics to its favor, but it is regulated by a very rigid regime of social status. None the less, they enjoy a monoculture that can be summoned on command to game non-anonymous systems very efficiently.

These various point-based status systems helps assist in the purging of agitators, and thus, reducing the exposure to criticisms which ultimately forms a monoculture. Free speech, as it is commonly understood in the West, is not tolerated and the status system helps eliminate that as well. Because being cut off from the identity consolidation greatly reduces one’s chances at gaming the system, internal conflicts are rare, but quickly sorted out. They generally have collective enemies, (the patriarchy) collective heroes, (Feminist authors and sociologists) collective fears, (Loss of influence) and collective utopias. (Equality)

In short, as long as one subscribes to the idea that a quantifiable status system helps  propagate emotional expressions, an individual will orient their self-identify in the interests of identity consolidation instead of one rooted in personal conclusions. Conflict is frequently avoided and constantly self-corrected. Foreign ideas have zero impact on the community as a whole.

The Theory

As a result of the difference in these communication structures, /pol/ is under constant criticism from feminist efforts (and affiliated identities they have collected over the century). Feminists, however, are very successful at protecting their monoculture through a layered approach:

  • Feminist accusations of social inferiority are designed to win maximum consensus from unaffiliated audiences. When such people hear the branding of “sexist” or “racist” they will automatically equate the branded as “evil”
  • Once branded as such, there is no way to achieve salvation. There is no bankruptcy process, penance, or jubilee event. The branding is designed to be permanent so that the branded is unable to extract any social influence whatsoever. Apologies are considered weakness and/or disingenuous.  You will have to submit to the will of the brander for all time.
  • Since they are ultimately trying to achieve points for their status systems, they can conduct mass branding on a fairly consistent basis while finding ways to reduce the amount of effort and increase the efficiency of that branding.
  • Because they can summon mobs by appealing to identity consolidation, they are able to shout down any opposing idea, and thus, protect themselves from non-feminist criticism.
  • If pressed hard enough, they can appeal to the legal system and try their luck at finding protection behind civil rights legislation.

On the outside, they appear to be invincible. However, upon closer inspection of the status system, it is actually an imperial monoculture, not a voluntary one. Meaning, one has to submit their will to the identity consolidation to achieve leveraged gains. This means if two participants of the Feminist identity self-identify themselves as women, but one woman self-identifies some other aspect of herself as one thing while another self-identifies that same aspect as something else, conflict will occur because that aspect’s influence will result in non-approved strategies to game the status system, and thus, be considered cheating.

This tiny difference, when compounded enough over time, can result in a fracturing of the monoculture. In theory, if a European nationalist identity could be proven to exist in that monoculture, then they would be targeted by the same branding they have judiciously handed out to others. Because this European nationalist identity is so closely tied to the common enemy of Feminism, (the patriarchy) not only would the monoculture be fractured, but those branded as “racist” will have to spend far more of their status influence just to participate in the monoculture, let alone command it as they previously had. Because the branding is eternal and irredeemable, when exposed to sustained branding, their entire apparatus will cost far more energy to operate than it puts out, and thus, putting the monoculture into a state of diminishing returns.

The Evolution of the Social Justice Orthodoxy

One should always know the history of any religion they believe they are a part of.

The Marxian concept of class consciousness started by trying to leverage the yields of the Industrial Age to bring about a material version of European Christian redemption. As it failed to fulfill its promises, the thunderous applause it commanded at the beginning of the 20th century mutated into a desperate and often clumsy cacophony of identity politics. As this game of minority musical chairs evolved, the band continuously played the siren song of an unattainable yet highly romantic idea of equality. Such intoxicating chords acted as a factory that manufactured new political identities on demand. The outcome is obvious: If every person believes that the unattainable equality can only be achieved by replacing social interaction with self-regulating echo chambers of identity, then all methods of communication will carry an additional volume of risk that cannot be offset.  Manufacturing political identities, then, is the only way the elite can retain control in the Age of Information.

 

Equality, the central theme for every permutation of social justice, is actually a religion.
