The Avalanche Has Begun. It's Too Late For The Pebbles To Vote.

I'm watching the results of the first round of elections in France, and I'm seeing that Le Pen made it through to the second round. The Establishment media in France and outside of it are doing as they did for Brexit and Trump: predicting Le Pen's loss. I'm expecting two things: that they're going to fix the second round, and that Le Pen will win anyway. Once Le Pen wins, the European Union will go from talking like threatened despots to acting like them and reveal by deed the true scope of the EU and attempt to "fix" the French elections in the name of preserving the Union.

The French nation and its civic adherents are starting to see that the Leftist/Globalist Establishment will not fulfill the State's duty of defense that justifies its existence. As with the American nation and its civic adherents, the French see in Le Pen a last viable option prior to taking up the duty and discharging it themselves. They will demand the removal of the aliens and the foreigners known to be hostile to them and theirs, as is ongoing in the United States and elsewhere that this has occurred. There will be no tolerance of opposition to this policy, as it is rightly seen as sedition and treason to maintain hostile populations within one's borders.

When Le Pen wins, expect the French State to do what President Trump has so far been unable or unwilling to do: declare all of the enemy organizations to be terrorists, and bring the full might of the State against them. The French State must also exit the European Union at best speed, reintroduce the Franc as its sovereign currency, seize the independent central bank and replace it with a State-owned/State-run central bank to handle all its finances (accompanied by a permanent ban on independent central banking) on the grounds of national security (which is not a lie; it IS). All of the hostile aliens and foreigners, and the traitors that aid and abet them, must be seized immediately, condemned as spies and saboteurs, and summarily executed as such.

The Establishment will screech like banshees. Fuck them. This is what it will take. Why? Because those hostile aliens, foreigners, and traitors will not admit defeat and just leave France to the French. They will double-down and become far more violent in their resistance. The State will have to resort to such measures just to fulfill its fundamental mission and duty to the French nation. This is, quite literally, a "cruel to be kind" scenario; it's what Vlad Dracul had to do, and for the same reasons. If the French nation is to survive the 21st Century, such severe measures must be taken.

Empire must fall. That doesn't mean it will be easy, pleasant, or convenient- ridding oneself of a violent, predatory addict never is. But it is the most viable option, and that's why once it is clear that this must be done that it will be done. Civilization is worth fighting for.

The Violence Seen in Austin & Berkeley Will Continue

Normally, I'm far more serious and cerebral in my tone. After yesterday's street fight at the University of California at Berkeley, something a little more everyman is in order. Such as this:

I've been watching, along with many others, the increasing antifa activity since the Ascension of the God-Emperor. Yesterday's street fights, which included the The Strong Independent (((Woman))) What Don't Need No Man finding out the hard way that Equality Is A Fraud. If I hadn't been a regular reader of The Anonymous Conservative, this behavior would still be puzzling to me. (Read the blog; puzzle pieces fall into place, completing the big picture.)

This is not going to de-escalate. It's going to keep ramping up because the backers want the antifa to keep freaking out and acting on their cognitive dissonance. On the same day as the fight in California, Mike Cernovich got jumped at an event (and did a good job exposing the attackers as pathetic by counter-punching for effect) in Austin, Texas. While Austin is SJW-friendly, most of Texas is not; antifa that try their tactics outside of friendly zones will legally get shot, even killed, as criminals.

The Establishment Media's management of these events' happenings is telling in who they're for: antifa. The tells are in the language used in the reports, the footage that accompanies the language, and the presentation of that footage- it's all about the perception of pro-Free Speech side as being the dangerous ones, an inversion of the truth. In other words, SJWs Always Lie. Why? Because they want to escalate. Why? Because, for now, escalation serves their Narrative (or so they think).

The reality is that the perception to the contrary, where the truth of antifa being the belligerents and the police getting stand-down orders (again) from the city, is what's getting out hard and fast via the Internet. This explains many of the moves over the last year, escalating recently with demonitization and shadow-banning on multiple social media platforms: Establishment Media lost control over the perception of the younger generations, and react by locking down the Internet as best they can to force them back on the legacy media that they still control (and failing to do so, so far).

We're going to see more of this violence in the streets, and not just in the United States. European cities are long overdue for the native nations to accept that their governments have betrayed them in favor of the proven-violent invaders that they fostered. (Yes, my European friends, your governments see you as a threat to them; that's why they threw open the gates and do nothing to stop the violence against you.) Once the governments show their loyalties (by whom they use the law, as a weapon, again), that's when the game is properly afoot and we accelerate into a global civil war.

The only way to stop that from happening is for nationalist political parties and movements to peacefully seize power now, and once gotten use the Rule of Law to end Empire's use of its Thralls and the hostile barbarians that they let in through the gates- permanently. Root-and-branch, then the earth salted. Delenda est, because they want to do it to us.

Perception Management In Action

Perception management in action. That's what this thing in Syria is about. If you want to change something in the political world, the cultural world, or other world of Man then learning how to wield perception--like it or not (and no, I don't)--is key to actually getting anything substantial done. It is a key, if not the key, to power for all but a handful of people.

To that end, factual reporting alone is insufficient. It is necessary, but insufficient; most people are not, never have, and never will be persuaded by facts or evidence- this is Dialectic, and the majority of Mankind is hopelessly illiterate in Dialectic, making it useless by itself. You have to hit them emotionally, symbolically, and that means Rhetoric.

This is why the media is all about the use of narrative (and always has been; let's not lie to ourselves) to shape perceptions, with Dialectic reserved only for internal discussions (because they're already sufficiently aligned to make this useful). This is why most anti-Empire resistance fails. It's too reliant on Dialectic, and disdainful of Rhetoric. Dilbert-creator Scott Adams points this out routinely via his "Master Persuader" series at his blog

And now we come to the "in action" part: Trump and Syria.

The established expectation is that Trump will pursue an isolationist foreign policy. As much as I would like that, it is not a realistic expectation. The United States, as the current leg-breaker of Empire, has foreign entanglements all across the globe; as it does not have control over its finances, and much of the personnel--elected and appointed--comprising the Federal governments many and varied agencies (including the military) has severe incentives to comply with Empire instead of oppose it. President Trump, if he is to fulfill all of his campaign promises, has to do what everyone pursuing an agenda must do: assess, prioritize, and then act on high priority objectives first at the cost of lower ones.

Until the Syria move, Trump faced a relentlessly hostile domestic Establishment and with it a relentlessly hostile media environment. Without sufficient counter-media presence, the Establishment media's story about Trump would prevail over the voting population over time; Trump knows the value of the perception game--this is the man behind The Art of the Deal--so he knows (like Sun Tzu) when to let go of what isn't working to pursue your ends.

Now the media's become much more friendly, at the cost of antagonizing his base of support, but the media's story shifted to tell the tale of how that base of support--the same base that voted him into the White House--is marginal and irrelevant, safe for Trump to ignore in favor of "wiser voices" (i.e. them). This means that Trump got them to change their story about him, at the cost of them defaming his supporters instead.

The other thing about the Syria story is that, due to the Internet changing everything, others who know the game can intervene to steer perception to their liking. Mike Cernovich demonstrated a few weeks ago that he knows this game very well when he set up 60 Minutes in a power-play that established him as someone to reckon with, a play he followed up with his breaking the story (See? That's what this is- storytelling.) about Susan Rice that compelled a media cycle on its own, and now he's put his hand on the Syria matter by by exposing traitors in Trump's camp playing him.

Yes, Mike Cernovich single-handedly changed a media cycle. First the usual alt-media outlets (e.g. WeAreChange) picked it up, then others followed until it passed within the view of the Establishment media- who have to report on it. He's forcing the Establishment--Empire's Thralls in the media, particularly--to struggle with him (David v. Goliath story) over the direction of the on-going narrative of Trump. He's messing with their perception management scheme. Thereby he's resisting Empire far better, and far more efficiently, than anyone else.

Why?

Because he's better at telling stories, and he's telling stories that people clamor to hear.

And that is the core of perception management in action. Use the language of narrative as Rhetoric to persuade people to go as you want by getting them to commit emotionally to your desired position, short-circuiting reason and logic to get things done- the same as the masters of Mankind have done forever. As I said before: Life is a solved problem.. Empire knows this; only by obscuring the truth does it endure. Solve the problem, and Empire must fall.

On the Importance of Perception

Three boys become apprentices of a famous magician. One boy becomes a successful and famous magician in his own right, succeeding his master, bringing joy to a world in need of it. One boy becomes a master criminal, using his skills to swindle fortunes from the gullible and buy protection from the authorities by swindling their secrets. One boy becomes a master inquisitor, using his skills to expose fraud and heresy, destroying their names before ending their lives.

What is common between them? All of them learned, at an early age, on the truth about the truth and how Mankind deals with it- in short, on what perception is, and how "magic" is really the manipulation of perception to create illusions and enchant others in order to pursue your goals. Why? Because Mankind is not a rational species, just a rationalizing one, and as such showmanship as part of a larger array of Rhetorical techniques is reliably effective.

The world that is, like it or not, is a world that is run by the management of perception. This is not new; it's ancient, and as such a lot of the "secret societies" teachings revolve around using ritual and word-salad to obfuscate their knowledge of perception to only those they find sufficiently trustworthy to be taught that knowledge. The masters of perception sometimes become the ones on the thrones of the earth, but often are just one or two steps removed; the powers behind the thrones.

The change between then and now is the Internet. For the first time, the knowledge once hidden from the masses is freely available; men like Mark Passio give away the secret knowledge, de-occuling that known as "the occult", and more prosaically you have videos of people teaching magic tricks on YouTube. The knowledge of practical techniques using perception to deceive, such as card tricks, sleight-of-hand tricks, etc. now make viable wider expansion of the principles and philosophy that make them work and give people motive to learn and master them.

I'm going to put it simply: you are wise to learn both the techniques and the means by which they work because this is how the most dangerous predators within Mankind identify prey, assess ease of predation, and go about executing their kills. Deception is key to successful predation, so knowing their ways means defending against them. Empire is the supreme predator on Mankind, so to defend against it you must know its ways; true freedom cannot come to sheep.

The Big Lie Is Not a 20th Century Technique

Shilling--the practice of advocating a position without openly acknowledging one's status as an agent of the position's beneficiary--is not new. It's old, damn old, and it is long past time to dig into the past to see where the big ideas of the past come from.

When I went to graduate school, I focused on the origins of John Locke's philosophy. What I'm putting into this post is the TL/DR version, necessarily abbreviated for length and summarized accordingly. There's enough here for a proper book; I read several (and a bunch of letters) in making this M.A. thesis happen.

The summary is this: Locke was a poor kid who had just enough scratch to buy a proper education, got it, got status anxiety as the price for it, and decided that life as a non-clerical academic in an academia dominated by clerics was a sureshot for dealing with his life. It wasn't; got tossed when he ran afoul of the orthodoxy due to his own efforts ands got tossed out after a youth and early adulthood in the Ivory Tower of academia.

Using what few connections outside academia he made, he got into contact with the first Earl Shaftsbury and moved into his house. Over the next two or so years, everything he'd spend the rest of his life publishing and promoting got stuck into his brain by his patron. Aside from some clerical work in officialdom and tutoring the Second & Third Earls, that's what he did- he wrote down, revised, etc. the political, social, economic, and cultural philosophies that directly and immediately benefited his patron and allies thereof. The man even published using allied printers.

Why does this matter? Because the 1st Shaftsbury was the head of the liberals of the day, the Whig Party, and at one time had control of the state- a power used as one expects, to benefit themselves at the expense of enemies and rivals. Shaftsbury also had business interests that directly benefited from the very economic and political positions that Locke advocated, and the Earl (and his son and grandson) rewarded their pet intellectual for his efforts properly.

This is not to say Locke is wrong per se, but it does mean that Locke is suspect and therefore every claim he made after coming under Shaftsbury's patronage must be audited, interrogated, and either confirmed or denied. All of you that are skeptical of Modernity, you've got good reason for your doubts now.

As I said above, there's enough here for a book to properly investigate this; I'd adapt and expand my M.A. thesis into such if I could focus on it full-time.

Utopia Is Impossible. Stop Trying.

Christians, and those that know their Bible, will remember the Tower of Babel. They will remember that this a utopian scheme, meant to bind all the nations together with a common tongue under a common rule as that elite sought to unseat God by breaching Heaven to do so. Well before that could happen, God smote the Tower. He scattered the nations and confused their language.

That's a parable, folks, and far too few took the lesson. Utopia is impossible, and it is impossible because Natural Law will never allow for it.

That makes Utopia a lie, a big lie, and it is no surprise that Utopia is often found hand-in-hand with Empire. Why? Because to achieve and sustain a utopia, especially over time, you need an imperial regime to enforce it. Imperial regimes require the yoking of disparate nations under the same authority, and all of the emergent behaviors that always occur when diverse nations are put into close proximity are part-and-parcel with utopian schemes. If Empire is the hardcore junky strung out on smack, Utopia is the sloppy lush that talks nice but can't keep herself together.

Every utopia fails. They fail because the consequences of their contradictions finally hollow them out and cause them to collapse, which is exactly how empires falls, and often by the same ultimate event: insiders turn traitors and throw open the gates to hostile outsiders.

And yes, I do mean every utopia. The excuse is irrelevant; the results are the same: oppression, poverty, misery, and death- lots and lots of easily preventable, avoidable, and often deliberately-inflicted death. Its psychology is that of a willful child, insisting that it has to work despite how many times it previously failed. The politics that demand that Big Daddy handle it all, and make the meanies go away, stems from every last damned utopian scheme and scam ever attempted- and the solution is also the same: Let. It. Fall.

There is no substitution for the Father. Not in the family. Not in the household. Not in the community. Not in the culture. Not in the nation. Not in the state. Not in the individual human heart and soul. Utopia is fundamentally the psychology of a deluded woman, thinking that everything will be all right with just enough magical thinking to go with magical economics, and then going "How did this happen?!" when Natural Law--God's rod of smiting--comes up to say "NOPE!" and once more restore the lawful order of Mankind's existence.

Stop trying. It won't happen. It won't because it can't happen. It can't because Natural Law does not allow it. Stop falling for this scam. Stop being Utopia's cuck and sucker, using you for Empire's gain. Empire must fall, and so must Utopia.

No Place for Rabbits

"The perfect is the enemy of the good."

Never has this been more obvious to me than in looking at my own side in the culture war. Both that those of my allies are not (and, I am certain, some cannot be) perfect examples of what needs to be to win, and that some are willing to do what they can here and now to make victory happen. They can't have their cake and eat it too; this is a world for wolves, not rabbits.

Empire, like any addict, is inherently rabbit-like in its psychology. When it cannot satisfy its insatiable hunger, it turns violent in an attempt to do so in the hope that the sudden spasm will terrorize the others into compliance. Why? Because it cannot avoid believing that any disruption of supply is the result of either incompetence or hostile action resulting in supply being withheld. Unable to see that there are other explanations, it presumes ill intent and acts to quash that threat by any means at its disposal.

The result, when it works, is the start of a downward spiral to ruin. It is the psychology that we see arise time and again in declines and collapses. (Which means that rabbit-thinking is addict-thinking, because the processes are the same and so are the results if left unchecked.) However, there is another aspect to this that can be and should be considered: when provided with an out, once conditions become intolerable the rabbit flees for easier conditions- and so will addicts. Empire will do likewise.

The good here is to attack the things that produce the easy conditions that Empire desires to feed its gluttonous lusts. A free people does entirely for themselves; what aid exists is entirely private, comes with eu-civic conditions, and exists solely for the purpose of rehabilitating rescues while repurposing the broken- and then, it is only for one's nation. Never for aliens or foreigners.

The perfect is to create a parallel structure and then break away from the rabbit warren to live apart until the warren collapses, and then break out to finish off the survivors. This is necessary, but not sufficient. Focusing on this alone isn't enough; attacking the sources of the rabbit-friendly conditions is required, and that means undoing all of the things done in a mistaken pursuit of compassion for parties that have proven to be incompatible with Civilization.

Star Trek will never happen because of evolutionary psychology, so stop trying to flout Natural Law. This is a world for wolves. Civilization is built by wolves for wolves, and not for rabbits. Empire is a rabbit- and rabbits are for eating.
