The Game of Life

Note: There is a post up behind the green door on the movie Pulp Fiction, which clocks in at #95 on the top-100 list. There is a post up at Taki on the change we are seeing in the political climate.


What has gotten the most attention on this side this past week is the hypocrisy by the ruling class and their histrionic flunkies in the media over the peaceful protest in the Capitol last week. The first response of normal people is to note how the same people raging about these protests were celebrating violent riots in the summer. In what remains of the internet, people have been posting examples of people in politics or the media saying the exact opposite of what they said a few months ago.

Normal people have been programmed to think hypocrisy is important, even though it is clearly not important to the people in the ruling class. Normal people are taught that a civil society operates by a clear set of rules that apply to everyone. When the people in the ruling class have one set of rules for normal people and a different set of rules for themselves, normal people get mad. The ruling class, however, does not care, as there is one set of rules for them and another for the rest of us.

This focus on hypocrisy has left something unnoticed. That is the increasingly overwrought behavior of our rulers. They have become a collection of hysterical drama queens, who carry on like the world is about to end. This is the one thread connecting all of the insanity we have experienced from our rulers recently. Their reaction is wildly out of proportion from what is expected. The actual news, when you think about it, is always about their emotionally charged reaction to mostly normal events.

If we go way back to the 2016 election, the political class reacted as if the most important man in history had come out of his cryogenic chamber in Paraguay and seized control of the government. Instead of analyzing why it was there preferred option was rejected and making the normal adjustments, they concocted wild fantasies about invisible Russians and carried on like teenage girls for four years. It has already been forgotten, but they really believed that Russia stuff.

The Covid stuff is another great example. The local tyrants have used this minor public health issue to feature themselves in a drama of their own creation. In this story, they are heroically fighting the great virus enemy. They are rallying the people in a great cause to prevent the extinction of mankind. The media slavishly reports on their great deeds as if they are out slaying dragons or facing the Black Knight. The buffoonish governor of New York even had a book written about his heroism.

What should be a minor public health issue has been turned into a great drama acted out by emotionally unstable people. According to the CDC, over 250 million people have been tested with 22 million confirmed cases. Total deaths in 2020 were in line with what you would expect, given the country’s demographics. A little higher due to Covid and a little higher due to the reaction. Sober-minded people would have treated this as a very bad flu season. Our hysterical rulers treated it as the end times.

The most recent example of the overwrought behavior by our rulers is the reaction to the protest last Wednesday. The “storming of the Capitol” was really just a bunch of people walking past the cops and going inside the building. Sure, juvenile pranksters livestreamed themselves doing shenanigans, but other than the Pence aide murdering Ashli Babbitt, it was nothing more than a frat house prank. It was nothing like the Kavanaugh protests just a short time ago.

The reaction by the rulers is as if a rebel army laid siege to the Capitol and set fire to most of the city. The FBI has been tasked with hunting down, in the most dramatic way, all of the protestors. Their media lackeys are now calling the Capitol protestors “insurrectionists” and demanding they be destroyed. Instead of calling it a protest, they are calling it a siege. Again, the image is of a foreign army attacking the center of the empire, like the Gauls sacking Rome in 387 BC.

For the inauguration they have now deployed army and national guard units. The media lackeys are bragging that they will be prepared and enthusiastic about using lethal force if any protestors turn up that day. Pelosi has been trying to get the Army to remove Trump from office. She apparently thinks he could launch a nuclear attack. We have come a long way from the America where citizens were expected to petition their government for the redress of grievances.

What we are seeing is the reaction of people who are no longer engaged in normal life, but instead are playing the game of life. They are immersed in a live action role playing game operated by juvenile narcissists. The ruling class gets to imagine themselves as world historical figures and every event puts the world on a knife edge. Their actions will determine the outcome. The entire ruling class is swept up in these false dramas that they get to play, while the rest of the country suffers.

Another clue is how they echo one another in the use of dramatic language to describe mundane events. One uses some over-the-top language then the rest of them are repeating it, maybe adding on some more dramatic language. The “protest” went from “riot” to “insurrection” to “horrendous insurrection” in a few cycles. They are competing with one another to show their loyalty to the group. What matters to them in this game is the opinion of the people in the game, not the rest of us.

America has reached a point where the ruling class and its various support structures is no longer connected to the people over whom it rules. They are inside Versailles or the Winter Palace, imagining what is happening outside. Meanwhile, outside, the world is nothing like the rulers imagine. The people outside look at the palaces and try to understand what is happening inside, based on the noises and behavior they see from the organs of the state.

That really is the root of their anger. The outside broke though the wall and gently reminded them that life is not a game and they are not great men. In the game they are always the winners, but in real life they are judged by their actions. It may take a while, but they will be held accountable. This is what angers them. They hate this reality, which is why they cling to the alternative reality of their fantasy, but reality does not go away when you stop believing it.

A fraternity prank, exactly. It was a peaceful protest, with some goofy people. I’m proud that we finally did something, I know Z hates that, haha!

I can’t imagine, normie buying into this stuff. I can’t imagine, normie, a sensible guy, who thought blacks should be somehow the same as Whites out of his goodwill, to not see that our leaders, the media, the government, are not total diabolical hypocrites…

While Trump clearly is the fall guy in the Capitol “Siege” flap, rightly or wrongly, the media’s and government’s panic, overreaction to it show more of their hand, and is probably better optics to our side, than the buffoonery of “our” protestors, or if you prefer, “insurrectionists.”

“Mass casualties” and “lambs to the slaughter” is quite the exaggeration. As for the war, the war against whites began ca. 1965. At first, it was largely rhetorical and ideological. Increasingly, it now involves physical violence, revocation of livelihood, and legal sanction resulting in jailtime. Belatedly, we are beginning to fight back by making our presence felt in the streets. And yes, ideally, these events would be planned out in the minutest detail, but in reality war is a messy thing. Regardless, the fact that our side is finally responding in a visible, tangible fashion is a positive development. I… Read more »

I watched The Godfather for the first time in a while over the weekend. Obviously a fantastic movie.

But I had a terrifying thought. That movie of course no longer meets the current woke standards. Patriarchy. Use of racial epithets. Etc.

I watched the original Bad News Bears this weekend for the first time since 1976 when it came out. One character, the pugnacious Tanner, repeatedly laments that the Bears have “niggers, spics, Jews and booger-eating spazzes” on its roster. What’s more Tanner doesn’t pay a price–such as being removed from the team or possibly arrested–for his insensitivity and racism. Clearly, c’est tres problemaptique! The film was remade in 2005, but I dare not watch it because I don’t like to have my gag reflex triggered.

Exactly. What our side consistently fails to understand, however, is that the reason average people follow these hypocrite leaders is precisely because they’re powerful enough to get away with the hypocrisy. It’s okay if your governor is a lying bastard so long as he’s in a position to promise you a sheltered life in return for your devotion.

With that assurance of a sheltered life, human nature devolves to grade school-level emotional maturity. The temper tantrum erupted when our infantile, sheltered leaders got touched with the reality stick.

Propaganda serves numerous purposes. One of the them is a feedback loop for confirmation bias. That is happening in the United States. Even the Left knows the propaganda organs pump out lies. They just like the message and go along with it. The ludicrous Trump-Russia collusion hoax was popular not because it was real but because some people liked the message.

So, yes, we need propaganda and lots of it.

Reagan couldn’t win his home state if he were alive and ran on the same platform today. He might even be banned from social media or called a racist by AOC.

Maybe our rulers fear what all this portends for their future. The protests are just that but it signifies a greater force against them in the future. That scares the crap out of them because they know at some level they have it coming. I hope I live to see the day.

Right-wing activism is definitely what scares them. The state is hoping to crush it before it gets out of hand. The hope is, enough people got red-pilled before the social media purges. I think there were. There is a lot of anger out there, but the question is: do people just detach and ignore (like non-violent resistance) or do they openly challenge and take back the system? Right now, the hysterical power of the state is making the open-rebels think twice. That’s why I welcome the Q types to some degree: they are willing to be the first out of… Read more »

The thing I keep thinking of is: has rule-by-council, such as what we have now, ever worked for any great length of time, especially in a multi-racial society?

Inciting hatred against an approved target is fundamental to coalition building; us vs. them has been a facet of human interaction since prehistory.

By controlling the minority masses through constant incitement against “the other”, they prevent losing their socioeconomic status.

The fear of death is an important driver of both their actions and their attempts to remake society. The more they can get the public to abandon Christian belief in an afterlife and a higher power, the easier it is to gain acquiescence for their restructuring of society.

Excellent point, Penitent Man. There’s a post up at Occidental Observer by a woman who was there on 6 Jan. She describes herself as a reformed leftist, and extolled how wonderfully multicultural all her previous Trump rallies were. She specifically noted that the Capitol protesters were almost all White, which she couldn’t understand or account for. That racial blindness is something normiecons share, and it is a dangerous and self-imposed handicap. Many of us have chosen Whiteness over democracy – that’s where people need to be, and it may be a bridge too far for too many.

What you say about Siddhartha (later, the Buddha) is quite accurate (per the stories). His fate was to either be a great King or a teacher (a Buddha). Fortunately he chose the latter.

But he sneaked out and saw the suffering in the world, primarily sickness, old age and death (of course there are others).

A more rightwing interpretation of Buddhism, such as Julius Evola’s, might appeal to you more. Rather than a nihilistic escape from reality, the Evolian view sees Buddhist practice as the purest example of traditional self mastery. The ascetic does not give up the struggle to sit in dreamy bliss; he struggles to escape the blissful dream of conditioned existence because it is not enough for him.

You give them too much credit. They know exactly what they’re doing, and they feel it’s time to go all in. The kind of people who are attracted to govt “service” are for the most part totalitarian, and once they get a real taste of it in their mouth nothing will stop them but buckets of blood.

One’s appetite for buckets of blood, will greatly diminish, I suspect, when the blood is one’s own.
Humor (?) note: Zman might like this trivia for his movie reviews: The 1959 Roger Corman “horror/comedy” film A Bucket of Blood technically is misnamed. There is, if I recall correctly, indeed a container of blood, but it’s a saucepan. A “prediction” they got right is that hydogenated fats are bad after all.

This focus on hypocrisy has left something unnoticed. 

But that’s the thing. Our rulers aren’t being hypocrites. The riots this summer were by their thugs, so they approved. The demonstration at the Capitol building was by dissenting Whites, so they disapproved.

Our rulers hate us. They are very consistent – and open – about that.

Not that long ago, we saw glimpses where our rulers showed their hate towards us. A couple of examples are when Obama talked about people clinging to their guns and bibles. Later on, even more explicit was Hillary’s remark about the basket of deplorables during a campaign speech. Those were just a couple leaks in the dam, which is currently broken and the hatred is all gushing out openly and with no hesitation.

[From another web site’s debate, but probably relevenat here] Has anyone considered that, judging from the presidential vote (ex-fraud) the country is pretty evenly split left/right? Of course this is nothing new, but the level of polarization is. The other, more restrained web conversation posited that perhaps half the conservatives are “radical right.” As good an estimate as any. Point: if it comes to blows, this implies that the Establishment may be at war, perhaps literally, against 25% or more of the total population. This doesn’t bode well 🙁

Also credit to the Q author(s) for leading them down a blind alley.

It’s easy to criticize the Q-tards, but we should be criticizing ourselves for not coming up with a narrative that appeals to that IQ bracket. We have to translate our own thing into a movie/picturebook format that appeals to them. That’s on us.

The Republicans don’t even know the first principle of right-wing politics: never apologize.

She’s a nasty old bird, but one of Ayn Rand’s concepts is exactly right: the sanction of the victim.

I.e., if you apologize, you have affirmed that the other guy’s moral values are the correct ones, and that your punishment by them is right. You’ve effectively handed the “moral government” over to them.

Always double down and/or counterattack. Every statement in politics should be a paraphrase of the sentence “we’re good and our opponents are evil.”

Rand skewered also the idea of original sin, which has been resuscitated in the form of “whiteness”, “white privilege”, etc. If you read Atlas Shrugged, you may have noticed how she didn’t tie original sin overtly to the cult of Jesus. It was left for the reader to insert the word Christianity. So even though the hero of the book is like a caricature of the straight, white, male, secular go-getter, Rand’s condemnation of original sin remains politically relevant.

I dunno. Reagan had an ornery streak a mile wide.

On [Aug. 11] in 1984, President Ronald Reagan said during a sound check for his Saturday radio address, “My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you today that I’ve signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes.”

Though Reagan aides, pool reporters and technicians in the room chuckled, a tape soon leaked. The Soviets momentarily put forces on high alert. Embarrassed U.S. officials quickly assured the Kremlin that Reagan’s offhand remark did not reflect White House policies or U.S. military intentions.

If you go on YouTube you can see videos of black people mad that BLM seems to focus on LGBTQ in the black community. The left’s hatred demands fresh blood. White men is old hat now. White women started being attacked in 2016 and it’s only amplifying from there. I think the powers that be liked keeping white women around to reduce fertility via feminism and encourage miscegenation but I think they’re tired of white people in general… Read more »

I think the BLM focus is explained by the fact it is led by a trio of black lesbians.

And its treasurer is a pardoned yenta who literally set off a bomb in the Capitol building.

35 lives and billions in damages during the BLM protests in DC, already being forcibly forgotten.

The ruling class hates EVERYBODY who isn’t them

They just move pieces around on a chessboard and for a while it was blacks they hated then whites, next it will be browns and asians. They do not like people. They never have. You can’t like people and in turn be willing to be the ones in charge who sends them off to die in wars or whatever the case may be.

Part of the selection or hiring process is that question: “Would you have any problem with sending others off to war ?”

Kamala was asked it, they all are.

The way you can tell America is on top of the world and begining is descent is that it’s leaders went from downplaying major problems to keep the populace calm to dramatizing mundane occurrences to get the populace excited. The letter is merely an indulgence that only the wealthiest of empires can afford. Of course, money that’s wasted on frivolities can’t be spent on necessities, so enjoy this party while it lasts. The hangover promises to be a real bitch.

Let the Power Structure’s unhinged rhetoric about a “horrendous insurrection” become a self-fulfilling prophecy…

Great article on Taki’s. I’ve often thought about how the permanent minority status plays out. I think for the next ten years, the KKKrazy Glue of the coalition of the fringes will hold but as whites continue to get marginalized, minorities are going to vie for those senior positions of power. Blacks are America’s Minority but hispanics are going to use their numbers to demand a seat at the table. Then you have the men in the little hats, asians (south and east), and other high functioning minorities. This isn’t saying that whites can sit back and let it all… Read more »

They have become a collection of hysterical drama queens, who carry on like the world is about to end

While you didn’t outwardly say it in this essay, I take it as implied that this reflects the feminization of our ruling class and society in general, as you have discussed in previous essays.

the feminization of our ruling class and society in general Saw a great example of this on the micro scale yesterday whilst out walking with the wife. We had veered off a country footpath to the bank of a river, swollen with the rains, a pleasure to hear and see. All of a sudden a hysterical voice grows suddenly louder as a couple approach on the path we’ve left: Woman: Neil, let me see the map! Where is the pub? You’ve fucked up again haven’t you!? Woman again: Where is the pub? You said it was here? Where is it!?… Read more »

I think it’s a safe bet that Neil is not particularly effective fulfilling his manly duties in the bedchamber.

Are you sure Neil wasn’t just “lost” and you happened to inadvertently thwart his true objective by your fortuitous presence? Swollen river you say . . . .

Derbyshire had a line years ago (I think in regards to a gay gov of New Jersey, whenever that was) that it’s “High school all the time for these people”. You can imagine high schoolers writing spirited articles about the cleaner used on the floor of the gym and whatnot and it just feels like the same thing: just absolute petty B.S. all the way down.

I’ve had the same thought at several points in my corporate life, that most folks cease developing mentally and emotionally at some point during middle or high school.

I wish I could remember who defined liberalism as “the lifelong struggle to make high school turn out right.”

but reality does not go away when you stop believing it.

Yeah, facts don’t care about your feelings! (sorry 😉 )

I think they are now attempting a “Normalization“, like the communists did in Czechoslovakia after the Soviet intervention in 1968. Even if they are detached from reality, narcissistic, hysterical etc., they are going to inflict a lot of damage on their enemies – which is Trump’s people and the white population of the US. So, probably worse than the abovementioned Normalization…

I think the Washington folks are more worried about having their corruption exposed and losing the ability to get rich without working. And it looks to me like more than half of us think think scamming the system is a good idea.
