Of Course It's a Gang! (Or "Why Anarchy Fails, Pt. 1138")

There is one thing that the anarchists (the an-caps, if you most be specific) get right it is this: "government" is a gang.

Well fucking duh. The very reason that "legitimacy" is a thing is due to the very real perception of syndicates and governments only differing based on (a) access to Central Bank IOUs ("currency") backed by nothing and (b) the ability to nuke the fuck out of others as a tool of policy enforcement.

I've said it more than once: The only rules that exist are those that are enforced.

Gangs are very basic mechanisms for doing just that: setting rules upon a population within an area, and then enforcing those rules. It's one step up from the family as a model of government; you have an executive, a chain of command, revenue generation, and use of force to establish and maintain the dominant position therein. The "law" is what the shot-callers say it is, enforced by those who have sufficient power to make it so, and the people pay up because it's better than the alternative.

That is a government. Add recognizable turf, and you have a state.

And now you have the most fundamental reason for both how and why all forms of anarchy are nothing but shitshow failures. History records that, inevitably, someone becomes a shot-caller and forms a gang around them; they become the government if they are success in establishing and maintaining dominance in an area.

Every form of government builds off the Family or the Gang, and you're better off using the Family as your model if you have a choice. That, at the least, has a built-in justification for executive benevolence towards subordinates that--ideally--leads to Noblesse Oblige and a healthy regime of Patron-Client relationships, customized for the specifics of a given nation and country.

So, since the State is inevitable, the smart thing to do is to stop whining about it and instead to ensure that it remains a machine under your control and not a cancerous vampire sucking the blood out of one and all. Pick your own damn cotton, ignore rules that can't or won't be enforced, and kill everyone that tries to make you their bitch. That's as close to anarchy as Natural Law allows.

A Free Man's Freedom Begins With a Free Mind

It's that time again, so all last week and through tomorrow there's been the retrospectives and commentaries on 9/11.

The most professional and prominent of them aires on History, and that's "The Road to 9/11". This miniseries has people on to give commentary as the voiceover recounts the official account of various elements leading from the death of Osama bin Ladin's father through to the act itself and its aftermath.

Recall last week's recommendation, Frame Game Radio, and what he focuses upon: the analysis of why something is what it is. In this case, the purpose of emphasizing documentaries and commentaries that present and focus upon only the government line of events serves to frame discussion of 9/11 solely as the establishment (via its media outlets) wishes that discussion take place. Per Noam Chomsky and Bernard Hermann, the ferverence within that frame can be quite significant but it is permitted to be seen and heard with ease. Go out of those boundaries? Out come the knives.

Now, you can take or leave the folks offering different explanations for that event. That's not the point; the point is that the party most desirous--as shown by their deeds, time and again--of shaping opinions regarding things they do have stepped forward yet again to do just that. You, not they, must be the arbiter of what is or is not true and factual.

That is the purpose of Narrative Warfare: to control what is allowed to be said about what is going on, or has gone on, by means of controlling the language used in discussion and disputation of those events. This is practical mind control. You can see this at work with any topic or issue of importance that you want to inquiry about- those with a stake in the outcome routinely attempt to shape the language used so the perspective permitted is one that benefits them. That's what "public relations", etc., are about.

Yes, that's why it is legal for the news to flat-out lie to you. (There is no Federal, state, or local statute forbidding it.)

It's also why, for all legal purposes, "news" is just entertainment. They're all Fake News, and they know it- which is why they resent that this Rhetorical killshot got turned against them. The networks give you Fake News, their cable holdings give you Fake Documentaries, and increasingly even the open entertainment is Fake (because they're replacing lawful narrative craft with political propaganda).

And it can't go on forever. That's what keeps me going- the knowledge of the certainty that this will stop, and when it does the reckoning will be terrible and glorious. As the Man in Black said before he died:

If you are not free between your ears, then no other form of freedom matters. Think! Especially if it's illegal.

Narrative Warfare: Recommendation - Frame Game Radio

I rarely do recommendations on this blog. I am about to do so. The reason is because the referrant offers a practical education on a vital skill that you do not get otherwise, often even if you work in the field, and once you see what's taught you will see why you did not get taught this previously.

I recommend that you find, follow, and study the messages of Frame Game Radio. Thread summaries can be found here. Twitter account is here, YouTube account is here, and Gab account is here.

You want to follow him on Twitter and Gab because of his Tweet/Gabstorms like this one, where he breaks down what "frame" is and how it is the superior tool for persuasion because it manipulates language itself to permit and forbid what is acceptable to think within a population. This is the sort of information you have to go to Mark Passio to get otherwise, and even he doesn't frame it this way- in plain English, for every man to see.

And then there's his videos, which are just as well-done presentations of the ideas he's getting across. This man knows what media is, how it works, and how each ones differs from the rest. Compare how he uses Gab and Twitter vs. how he uses YouTube and you shall see for yourself.

There are people who pay for university degrees, and graduate degrees, to get half of this taught to them and often without any sense of how or why it works. Before that you had to join secret societies and endure bizarre rituals to learn this stuff. You're now able to learn all of it, for free, and with proper context explaining the hows and whys behind it. Level up your Narrative Warfare game, shitlords. Learn from Frame Game Radio. Gaslighting is a thing; learn how to fight it.

Gamergate Turns Three: How It Turned the Tide of Narrative Warfare

Three years ago, the pushback against Empire began in earnest with the eruption of #Gamergate. Who would've thought that gamers would be the ones to break the inexorable tide? No one, yet we did just that, and with it began something that not even many involved appreciate to this day. Happy Birthday, Vivian James, you glorious virtual shitlady. The ride never ends.

The Thralls of Empire who survived the thrashing that gamers in the videogame sphere wrought unto them, and still do, now go about proclaiming that this was the event that lead to the ascension of the God-Emperor, Brexit, and the rise of "fascism" worldwide.

Not exactly.

What #Gamergate did was to provide everyone else seeking to oppose the Thralls--in our case, disposable SJWs--a viable and easily practiced playbook to deal with them. The Supreme Dark Lord, Vox Day, noted that #Gamergate was a 4th Generation War situation fought at the level of media and culture. He's since frequently referred to it when commenting on succeeding conflicts against the Death Cult that the SJWs serve, and furthermore notes that those who are effective tend to conform to the playbook and the ineffective do not.

Congratulations, fellow shitlords. We really were the vanguard. From a certain point of view, the accusation hysterically thrown at #Gamergate is accurate; others, seeing the success, observed independently and copied what worked. Where they get it wrong is thinking that, like Lefting indoctrination, this is deliberately passed on and not Monkey See Monkey Do. Furthermore, since Occam's Razor is lost to them they can't think their way to that conclusion even if they were inclined to do so.

What they have noticed, however, is that they lost Narrative Control

The big shock of #Gamergate was that, for the first time, the lock on media control did not have its intended effects for shutting down opposition to SJW convergence. The reason? They did not control, utterly, the primarily medium of communication: the Internet. It became possible to counter-signal their Narrative Warfare attacks, so that's what happened and with it came the decentralized and autonomous network of individuals who came together as if centrally coordinated- but not. #Gamergate is the world's first Real Life Stand-Alone Complex

That ability to engage directly with one another made a big difference, and often is underappreciated. Livestreams routinely went on, blogs routinely spread around, and other means of communication fostered discussion and argument without the SJWs having any way to control it. Operations arose, some of which are ongoing. (e.g. OpSkynet, the meet-and-great connection op) Now we're seeing some of us write down what happened and make it available to further prevent re-writing of history by the SJWs. (See here and here for examples.)

You cannot control a population if you do not control the flow of information. Information control is literal mind control, one step removed from manipulation of language itself. They do not control the context. So, inevitably, what we see now--the Big Social push for censorship--was the foreseeable (and it was) reaction. As I said before, this is a desperation play; they know they've lost control, and this is their penulimate way to regain it. (The ultimate being pure banking-based attacks to cut off access to credit and currency entirely, but we're not there yet.)

We would not have SJWs Always Lie or Cuckservative if not for #Gamergate, so my fellow gamers stand proud and tall. Revel in knowing we dealt the Doloros Stroke to Gawker that allowed Hulk Hogan and Peter Thiel to finish it off.

And, in particular, take pride is making 4th Generation Warfare something that can be, and often is when done properly (as per the Left's own Alinsky), a hell of a lot of fun.

The Sad and Rabid Puppies, the Superversive Movement, the Pulp Revolution, and the smarter elements of the Alt-Right have all learned from #Gamergate- to varying degrees, and showing varying success accordingly. Empire Must Fall, and its fall began when the JV squad of Empire's Thralls decided to mess with us- the gamers. People who, for fun, take on big tasks and determinedly hammer away at them until completely demolished. "Git Gud" and "Gotta Plat" for the win, motherfuckers. Shine on, you crazy diamonds, and light the way to victory for one and all.

SJWs Always Double-Down: The Alt-Left Freakouts Escalate

The Supreme Dark Lord, Vox Day, coined the Three Laws of Social Justice Warriors:

  • SJWs Always Lie
  • SJWs Always Double-Down
  • SJWs Always Project

This past week, we've seen all three shamelessly manifest in action. The timing is suspect. I've said previously that these are freakouts, and this past week's escalation all-around is no different.

The lies primarily come from the press, who are allies of the Alt-Left cult army in the streets. The double-down is the escalation of violence by said cult army, who are already engaging in friendly fire (if the BLM-Antifa scrap is true), which increasingly targets uninvolved people merely because they "look fascist" (including pets).

Big Social's censorship move, coming as this escalation hits, is why the timing is suspect. Not only does Charlottesville look more and more like a set-up by infiltrators, it--and this past week's violence and media fraud--looks like a coordinated country-wide hit to put a stop to the Alt-Right.

They're doing it because they think they're under threat. (They're correct.) They think they have to move now or they will lose their power. (They're correct.) They think they're going to win. (That's where they're wrong, kiddos.) They--and lot of Alt-Lite blowhards--don't yet see that they've already been outmanuevered and set-up themselves.

First, the departure of Steve Bannon from his position as Chief Strategist in the White House is not a loss. People fail to properly comprehend his statement; the Trump presidency he fought to achieve is over because it did its job, and now that the strategic situation has changed the God-Emperor has to reconfigure his staff to meet the new situation. Staff turnovers are nothing to freak-out about.

Second, Bannon never left Breitbart. He IS the Board of Directors there, so he's going back there to resume active control, right that ship once more, and reconfigure it into the external media warship to fight on behalf of the God-Emperor. There's already reports of Bannon setting up an escalation of Breitbart's media operations accordingly. Now unleashed, Bannon is free to fight back against the lying frauds of the media Establishment.

Third, despite MSM media running interference, Alt-Left operatives are already being uncovered and confirmed. That information then goes on to the appropriate law enforcement agency, through trusted contacts, and will be used to prosecute offenders. Furthermore, the same Feds that likely pulled the op in Charlottesville were also present in the past week's street actions signalling to colleagues to collect DNA evidence for later use in prosecution. (Thanks to Thomas Wictor for pointing that out.) With Jeff Sessions at the helm of the Justice Department, expect arrests and prosecutions presently.

Fourth, trust the God-Emperor. This is the man who made North Korea back down with words alone, whereas previous presidents had to use force or bribery to shut them up. He's media-savvy to a degree even Cernovich and his ilk don't comprehend; they think Pence has Trump's number, only to fail to see all of the signs of a mastermind at work: Trump knows his Sun Tzu as if he wrote it. The Supreme Dark Lord hammered this repeatedly over the week's Darkstreams, and Wictor independently said the same thing- both men are far more tuned in than Cernovich on such matters.

The SJWs--and their masters--are panicking, throwing everything (including their own shit) at the wall with primal screetching in the hopes of making something stick. They hope that censorship will break-up the ability to organize for others, and when that fails they will go for financial attacks, all the while keeping at the street violence primarily to demoralize us by intimidation. It's all really a bluff; they have little, if any, substance behind their bluster and they're far weaker than they say they are.

  • They won't operate where masking is forbidden and enforced.
  • They won't operate where they don't have local government in their pocket.
  • They won't operate where media coverage isn't favorable.
  • They won't operate where their targets are likely to be armed and legally allowed to kill them.

That's the tell, folks: they only operate where they have allies in place to hobble us in the streets. The problem? We can beat them without taking to the streets. We can stream their marches, take their photos, upload them to secure cloud locations, and then encourage the shitlords of /pol/ to weaponize their autism and (as said above) pass findings to the police or the Feds and let them do the rest.

The Alt-Left enjoys being rejects raiders from a Mad Max film. The Alt-Right enjoys using their network high ground to identify those violent vandals and lose their sides when they take perpwalks and face serious prison time for their behavior. Not only does the Alt-Left make the Alt-Right inevitable, they make it fun to deal with them appropriately and get the gears of government to turn against the fools instead of for them.

We're watching Empire freak out, and send its Thralls to put down the existential threat, but God Will Not Be Mocked. We're now watching Empire fall.

Narrative Warfare: Media Domination = Language Domination

What I know will happen more and more in the coming years, as Generation Z comes of age, is that the current media establishment method of shaming-as-social-control will decline preciptously in effectiveness. "White supremacist" is already devoid of meaning, as it's been thrown around like a ragdoll every time some dissenters on the Right decide to speak in public about their opinions and argue their positions.

What else I know is that more people will begins to accept the reality that the official rules of the American polity are not the actual rules, and therefore more people will adjust both their expectations and their operations accordingly. The Establishment media continues to lie and defame for profit, just as the gaming media does, and while frustrating at times it is notable that fewer people believe these sanctioned liars with each incident. More and more of the routine deception gets exposed, as much by ineptitude caught on camera as by anything else.

The potency of the media establishment declines as the demographics shift against them. Specifically, that they fail to engage the younger generations with any approximation of the reach they possess with the Baby Boomers; as the Boomers fall out of societal power, so does the legacy media. This is an unraveling process; we've already seen newspapers collapse, and the Big 5 publishers out of New York and London are ailing (and with them the bookstore business) also. Radio's having to adapt to podcasting and livestreaming, and if they don't embrace the new they that too is done.

What this means is simple: the ability to seize control of a narrative, shape it as desired, and promulgate it uncontested is over. This is also plays into the push by Big Social to control the context; Narrative Warfare requires language control, and with the loss of media domination comes loss of language domination, as you no longer have uncontested control over what words mean- and therefore cannot control the context of events any longer.

If people are not yoked under a single dominant media establishment, then they begin to use language to establish their own contexts, and therefore can establish and maintain themselves against Empire and its objective to reduce all to Thralls- extensions of its will. Control over the mind begins with control over the language. Control over the language requires control over the contextualization of what one experiences, i.e. perception management, and if you cannot put to words what you experience then you can never see a literal shackle and still be utterly enslaved because you cannot tell others what you know. The memes are the ways Mankind spreads its knowledge, and that requires media freedom.

(Yes, this is what Hideo Kojima goes on about in his Metal Gear Solid series; most obvious in 2,3, and 5.)

And man, with the the Point-of-No-Return we just reached in the United States, seeing the freakout reactions all around will prove quite illuminating on this point to succeeding generations (wherever they are). Why? Because the mythology established in the West with the end of World War 2 is finally breaking down, and with it the symbols used as weapons by the media to shame-control people. Once that power shatters, and it will soon, we're going to see Empire fall.

The Attempt By Big Social to Create Context is Doomed

You know the enemy is losing when they freak out and go all "SHUT IT DOWN!" in response, hoping to control the Narrative. Mister Metokur goes into it here:

He overstates the case, and it can be reversed. Just after he put out that video we got word about the Google memo, and it turns out that there is significant dissent against the SJW convergence at Google. Vox Day goes into it here. The summary is that someone within Google released an essay criticizing the SJW Convergence therein, and the predictable point-and-shriek swarm attack (organized by middle and senior managers) ensued. If this is the case at Google, count on there being similar cases at Facebook and Twitter.

And that is just internal pressures within the workforce. Once any stockholder gets their hands on the stats and puts together cause and effect, they will have reason to file suit against the company for failure to fulfill the legal mandate of fiduciary duty (in short, management is putting Convergence over legal obligations, which is illegal). Once such a suit goes to Discovery, the SJWs in that corporation are screwed; either they double-down and make their punishment worse or they cough up the goods and take their perp-walks while cutting checks to Uncle Sam.

So, while the immediate situation can be thwarted and beaten back, Metokur's cynicism does have a point. If they are not eradicated, the SJWs will regroup and do it again later, because they are ideologues committed to a cause and that cause has to have domination of the culture to succeed. It's not mere censorship, it's "creating context", something Hideo Kojima foresaw over a decade ago as being an issue.
