The Return Of The King

Something I wanted to talk about in the show, but I got long winded on other stuff, so I had to skip it, is something I talked about with a friend this week. That is, why is it that so many people have gone crazy all at once? There’s always been partisanship and fierce debates between liberals and normal people. People have always had heated debates about current events. Today, we have lots of people who seem to live in an alternative reality from the rest of us.

The issue that my friend and I were discussing is the riots. He had just had an interaction with someone on-line where the person told him the riots were fake news created by conservative news outlets. He pointed out that we have videos of arson and looting, much of it from left-wing sites. He sent him video of Minneapolis as proof that the riot actually happened. The person dismissed it all as a conspiracy theory saying that the protests have been peaceful.

Just as there has always been partisanship, there have always been crazy people who line their clothes with aluminum foil. What’s different now is it feels like we are overwhelmed by them. They work in the media. They work in government. They are in the schools. It is not just left-wing conspiracy stuff. The whole QAnon thing is another example of mass lunacy. It’s like the novella I Am Legend, except instead of turning people into vampires, the virus makes them crazy.

One theory on this is that these sorts of crazy people have always existed, but they existed in isolation. The person prone to Russian conspiracy stuff was not around others that indulged in that stuff. Paranoia and social norms kept these people from meeting in real life. The internet has allowed these people to freely and comfortably network with one another on-line. All of a sudden, this type of person knows lots of people who are prone to their type of madness.

What the internet has done is provide social proof. No matter how your madness plays out, you can find a Facebook group to tell you that you are not only not alone, but you are right. Instead of these people living in isolation, fairly sure they are alone in these thoughts, they now have lots of people who share their madness, giving them the confidence to be public with it. We are now plagued by highly confident, maladapted mutants, to use an Ed Dutton term.

There have been plenty of gags on television where the internet is suddenly shut down and people are forced back to the old ways. People suddenly must talk to one another and use maps. One likely outcome, if we shut down the internet, is the world would suddenly get much calmer and quieter. The plague of maladapted mutants would no longer be plugged into their networks. They would be reduced to shouting their lunacy on street corners wearing sandwich boards.

Human society evolved ways to peacefully manage the lunatics that are a part of every human society. A mild form of shunning, with the occasional witch burning, was enough to keep these people under control. Social shaming of gossipy women, for example, was effective at controlling the Karen problem. We have yet to evolve such mechanisms for doing this on-line. Worse yet, these gossipy women now control the discourse on-line as big tech censors.

The solution to the current unrest may be as simple as banning women from the internet or maybe just social media platforms. For that matter, just turn the who thing off entirely. Would the world really be so bad if you had to order from the Amazon catalog over the phone rather than on-line? is your life going to be worse or better without Twitter and Facebook? If all the internet billionaires were killed tomorrow, is anyone really going to notice or care?

About a year ago they sent me some of their stuff. Up until that point, I had never heard of chaga, but I gave a try and it is very good. It is like a tea, but it has a milder flavor.

Stephen King had a story recently about someone who watches the news and notices the same strange man on the scene at every catastrophic event. After some sleuthing, they realize this “person” at every plane crash and car wreck and school shooting is actually some sort of inter-dimensional being that is literally feeding on misery the way a small fish might circle a thermal vent on the seafloor. I think that’s pretty much where most progs are; they’re miserable monsters whose only joy is in seeing the look on normal peoples’ faces when they watch small businesses burn or people… Read more »

Most extremely online people get their “do something” fix by getting outraged and posting comments online. Problem is it’s a pressure valve, and accomplishes very little.
On the corollary, my old man was a political junkie, and he would have to force himself to tune out when he started to get urges to drive over to D.C. and take care of things himself.

Interesting premise for a story, and it sounds a bit like that of the Mothman Prophecies, which supposedly has some basis in reality. The idea is that, throughout history, the Mothmen have been seen in areas in which some sort of disaster or tragedy was about to occur. They were harbingers of a sort. What is left unexplained is whether or not the Mothmen are causative agents of catastrophe. If they are, we could certainly think of Leftists as Mothmen.

I agree. I grew up in a family of shit-libs. When I started noticing things I learned quickly that you don’t dare talk about them. The women in our families are all Karen’s. On the net I found others that had noticed things too. Then I found this blog where they not only had noticed, they had processed what they saw and could predict the actions of the lunatics with the accuracy of a Swiss watch. The shit-libs know the riot is real. They just don’t want you knowing it. That might raise the kind of questions that they can’t… Read more »

Having seen some mugshots of the antifa members arrested over the past few weeks, I’m increasingly persuaded of this phenomenon being real. Some of the head shapes of these individuals are so grotesque and oddly shaped that there’s no way they fit through their mothers’ birth canals; instead of dying off, as would have been the case in times past, medical technology (c-section, for example) made their very existences possible.

I would build on that and say that the information overload has created a post-factual world.

Facts are no longer fixed points of reference information. They are now highly malleable, or even real-time editable in the case of Wikipedia.

And of course, this condition is far more beneficial to the Left, for whom it is always Year Zero.

The problem is that the surfeit of “truth” that the Internet disseminates means that everybody is able to find, or generate, his own “truth.” The glut of fact and opinion makes the job of the genuine truth-seeker all the more difficult. Whether our current epistemological condition is better or worse than it was before the Internet, I cannot say for certain.

I’d have to disagree with that. It’s the surfeit of facts and opinion that makes truth-seeking possible at all or, at least, made lying to the public harder.

The feeling that there were less lies and fake news in the old days is a false one: it just feels so because today, journalists are being busted left and right, their credibility rating below that of even politicians.

There were certainly exceptions of course–the NY Times is a prime example–but generally speaking, before the rise of the New Left, beginning in the mid-60s, American journalism was less nakedly partisan, and more committed to finding and disseminating truth. The media was far from perfect (the insistence upon perfection is a fool’s errand, at any rate), but back then you could be reasonably well assured that what you read in the papers had a strong positive correlation with the truth. Nowadays the opposite is true. Compounding the problem, who has the time and energy to sieve through incredibly vast quantities… Read more »

There were exceptions, of course, but I don’t think any reasonable person, comparing the media in 1960 to 2020, could help but conclude that it is far more biased now than then. This is the chief reason the media’s reputation is the lowest it’s ever been. And the media’s brazen Leftism is merely a reflection of what has happened to every major institution in “America.”

On the other hand, under the pre-internet media model there used to be locally owned and operated media outlets. Now it’s likely that your local small-town, dead-tree, newspaper is owned by a multinational corporation or some far-away entity. So you get the approved “views” rather than “news.”

Here in Oregon we have smoke so thick now from massive wildfires that it burns your eyes and throat constantly. There’s been talk about what started the fires.

Blending journalism with jewish causes, I saw a BitChute video where the New York Times ran an article in 1916, give or take, where it was quoted that 6 million Jews will die due to the war and consequent starvation, etc. that same number was carried forward through the years in many subsequent articles (images shown in the video) up until modern times. Coincidence?

Point taken, but the idea is that this “6 million” number was already being used during WWI (for starvation), and its quite convenient that it shows up again as applying to the Holocaust for a completely different reason. It seems like it was just pulled forward without any real justification … also, this was the 20th century, not the 19 century.

People’s access to information—and the need to process it—has grown beyond the average person’s capability. That probably began to happen with radio and in overdrive after WWII and the advent of TV. Prior to that, newspapers filled the void and they were delayed and minimal as compared to the speed and amount of “information” today. The need to process began to become important as we discovered that the MSM had been co-opted and the Cronkites of the time were really just partisan hacks under pretense of impartiality.

Add to that the “Dunbar Number”..the idea that we can only have meaningful relationships with 150 people, max. We’re hyper-social primates, so picking up subtle cues in the group is important for survival.

Social media causes HUGE amounts of stress as people try to placate and signal to a truly limitless number of strangers. You can be certain FB, Twtr, and all the rest prey on this fact.

I saw this yesterday. The article is about a cake baked to commemorate uganda’s Airlines first year anniversary. It’s not a great cake but a bunch of miscreants online made fun of it and now they’re apologizing and ashamed and having a bake off but the point is is that the miscreants are ruling the world right now. Anything anyone tries to do in a spirit of Goodwill will be torn down by these malevolent people. I don’t know what the solution is.

And this gets to the beauty of feudalism, where the various components of society were rigid and self-contained, and where every person knew his role. A peasant in 14th-century Styria was not expected to have an opinion on Meister Eckhart’s metaphysics or the implications of the Battle of Kulikovo Pole.

Muslims are just convenient scapegoats to let out some white anger – and being the target of such anger is causing many muslims to become pozzed to “assimilate”. A brilliant strategy by our fellow hat people no doubt.

There are admirable things in Muslim culture. Not merely artistic (although I believe they copied the craft of ceramics and mosaics from the Romans). Their hospitality and treatment of guests is still a real thing. My husband and I had some wonderful holidays in Turkey (pre-Erdogan, of course) and I made a number of friends among the Iranian community here. All that said, however, they belong in their home nations and not America or Europe.

They’re not the devils they are made out to be – a lot of what passes for “Muslim” issues are actually third-world or Arab issues, for instance. The rest is agit-prop from Zionists ala “let’s you and him fight, goy.”

That said, they’re too incompatible with our societies to allow them to immigrate here in any significant numbers – and frankly our societies aren’t good for them either.

We should stay at arms-length, limit our contacts to short-term tourism and possibly strictly-limited trade.

Patriotism was ill-used in the neocon wars as well and it left a sour taste in many mouths even before its latest Woke re-purposing. Patriotism has very shallow roots in Millennials and Zoomers.

This erosion of legitimacy works in our favor in the long run.

Xers will be the last generation that has a strong belief in institutional America.

Most of the government’s legitimacy stems from fighting phantom menaces now. Public awareness and dissatisfaction with official cynicism and corruption is probably somewhere around Soviet rates in the 1980’s.

The first step is identifying the problem. Check. Second step is deciding what to do about it, if anything. The black pill imo is the MGTOW path— throw your hands up in frustration and make do the best you can. Fixing the problem is more difficult because it involves a change of attitude and perspective. Forgiveness too. My best thoughts: women are out of control in large part because of the degraded state of men. Tech made men less economically important, killed or maimed them by the millions in the last century, took the fight out of many who survived.… Read more »

The economic disaster caused by the lockdowns, looting, and other disasters this year will at least begin the process of destroying the basis for the kinds of fakework that most women do. It wasn’t so much that technology made men superfluous as that it created a vast economic surplus that cynical politicians seized control of through taxation and began redistributing to those who voted them into office. No surplus to steal, no more half-assed jobs and handouts for halfwits and crazies. Everything once again comes down to “what the hell are you actually good for?”.

Further, even that point has become mostly irrelevant except perhaps in one regard: the Deep Terror State likely will orchestrate some sort of False Flag domestic terrorist attack in the heartland somewhere or another to try to make the rubes rally ’round the flag again to salvage their playground.

Regarding the baby and bathwater conundrum, P.J. O’Rourke once quipped, “For those pining for the ‘good ole’ days,’ I have one word for you: dentistry.”

Luddite inclinations are, to me, a sign of weakness, a sign that you can’t handle what’s been given to you and wish to run away from challenge. Reverting to a more primitive state of human development sends the signal that aspirations are pointless, which is similar to the dehumanizing effect of socialism.

Only a strong pro-social government can tame modernity for you, much less make it go away. A society that cared about its citizens would ban Facebook and other social media – particularly for minors – based solely on the statements their own insiders have made about it being a deliberately designed, deployed and monetized Skinner Box – much less the fact they admit they don’t let their own kids use it. But in the end it comes down to your biology and your culture. Still-homogenous nations like Norway & Denmark aren’t being torn apart by Twitter-trends. Russia either. Kids and… Read more »

“A society that cared about its citizens…” They would have to meet the criteria of being citizens. And be ruled by fellow citizens, and thus neighbor caring about neighbor.

To be honest, I don’t think the bugman life is *automatically* going to fail. We can live in small apartments and be alright. Not ideal, but we can get by.

What causes bugman to fail is diversity + bugman. Diversity is what causes the whole thing to crash down. It just makes everybody miserable. I live in a very diverse area and the segregation is massive. We might be neighbors but I’m not invited to their brown dinners and nor are they invited to mine.

Diversity will cause this whole thing to crash down, mark my words.

Apartment-living as a single, couple or even “nuclear family” is just barely workable absent diversity. The extended family model is the way to go if at all practical on a long timeline. Three generations on one larger land parcel with a paid-off mortgage instead of three gens, three homes, one underwater, one half-underwater and one reverse-mortgaged to pay for senior night-putting classes in Hawaii & discount statins.

I never lived in a non-diverse apartment. But in a non-diverse comminity, I would think this would be way better for young people who either don’t have any children yet or have only 1 small child. It’s a lot cheaper than home ownership. Most people aren’t buying homes and then living there for the rest of their lives. If you don’t plan on staying there for the rest of your life, buying a home isn’t even real. Your just renting while getting headaches of home ownership. A major advantage of owning a home is that your mortgage doesn’t go up.… Read more »

Yes, the Russia conspiracy theories are bat guano insane. Some of it is old ethnic rivalries between Jews and Russians; Jews, once perhaps the most successful ethnicity in the United States, have reduced themselves to utter jokes by continuing with their old grievances and becoming more unhinged each day. While Rep. Adam Schiff is a partisan hack and a corrupt liar, by carrying on the Judeo-Bolshevik bitterness on the national stage, he has alerted many fellow Americans to what utterly deranged shipwrecks his once dominant co-ethnics have become.

Jews are absolutely obsessed with themselves. They think about being Jewish all the time. Everything in the world is seen through that lens.
In my experience, I have spent a lot of time around Jews and blacks. Both are race conscious to such an extent that it would baffle the average white person. They are probably more race conscious on average than even white identitarians or “white nationalists”
They even do it when nobody else is around.

Obsessed with themselves or obsessed with us?
80% of white dating app users only messaged other white users, and only 3% of all messages from white users went to black users. (Black users, meanwhile, were 10 times more likely than a white person than a white user was to reach out to a black person.)

They(both groups) just won’t leave us alone, they’re parasites.
They hate us, but they won’t let us be either. Why won’t they distance themselves from us?

The problem with the Web is that in the “atomization versus community” taffy pull, it initially favors the atomized. People can sit at home, by themselves, and create a simulacrum, on line, of their desires and interests. The Web aids the building of communities as well, but people have to work at that, it isn’t just free and easy. Community building requires on-line and f2f, atomization does not. We also need to work with the situation we have, not the one we want. The Web is a tool, it simply needs to be skillfully used.
