On This Boxing Day, Remember To Return Your Despair To The Frauds That Sell It

While today is Boxing Day, it is still Christmas Weekend so I'm going to be doing real-life socializing. Therefore, after celebrating the birth of Our Lord and Savior, remember this and--regardless of all the bullshit surrounding it--take heart that a handful of ordinary people refused to succumb to fear and despair when put to the test and let justice be done despite Empire and its Thralls crying for innocent blood.

No, it won't get better next year. Empire refuses to concede defeat; it will only double-down, as it has recently by scaring another jury into a wrongful verdict. But we are not to give heed to such wicked spirits, and instead to stand fast to that which is good, beautiful, and true.

But its time is finite. The only question to entertain is "What will remain when this tyranny collapses?" because it will collapse, because it must collapse. We need only ensure that we don't go with it. Empire falls.

The 4chan Image That Explained The Failure of "Get Woke, Go Broke"

This is the 4chan post that Romanian Vee cut a video about a few weeks ago.

Save that image. Share where you can.

When They Learn To Game The Enemy's Narrative Attacks

Readers of this blog are well aware that all mainstream media in the West is nothing more than Globohomo propaganda. Readers here are, by and large, also aware that state media in West Taiwan is also propaganda.

Let me finish the cycle: state/mainstream media across the globe is propaganda. This include India'a WION, Russia's RT, and more.

The value, therefore, of these outlets is to read Narrative Warfare beats. Since these are mouthpieces for power players, no different than Variety is a mouthpiece for the Hellmouth's studios, a savvy man learns to appreciate the value of these mouthpieces for their actual functions.

I guarantee you that this is how competent institutional players see these media outlets, regardless of what they turn around and say on those same outlets. It's a bothersome and tedious task to filter every last article you read, every video you watch, and every radio report you hear through the Narrative Warfare filter but the consequence is to get caught out of position when Empire's Thralls make a move telegraphed before the fact by those same things.

For those familiar with the idea, this is how--most often--Empire obeys the law of telling its targets what they are going to do before they do it (i.e. calling their shots). (It's a bit more complex than that, but that gets into Crazytown and I'll leave that for another post.) It's nothing more than seeing what bullshit excuse they think they can get away with, using these media pieces as A/B tests, and running with what seems to work.

That means it can be gamed.

That means that we ought to be gaming this for our advantage, because once you can see what the game is then you can predict possible actions and thereby choose the outcome you want.

I have reason to believe that this is indeed happening, as smarter and savvier dissidents are recognizing Narrative Warfare for what it is and have adapted their strategies to better wage it. Some of this is better optics. A lot of this is better Rhetoric. All of it is better organization at all levels; tactical, strategic, logistical- and the last means parallel economies that reduce (and in time eliminate) reliance on Empire's chokepoints.

Gab's been open about being part of that parallel economy. Telegram's been good to date on allowing dissidents to communicate. We still need to see alternative payment processors and financial institutions (get a credit union going, at the least). This will, of necessity, require participation in things Empire's Thralls don't want done; transit that Empire doesn't control, medical provision Empire doesn't monitor, education Empire has no say in, etc.

And thanks to the inability of the Thralls to keep their mouths shut, they reliably give away their moves in their own media outlets; that's what I mean about gaming this for our advantage. The new cohort of dissidents groks Operational Security better than the Trump cohort did; the nationalists failed, so the ultras are coming up now, and they are going to play for keeps.

Empire is falling. What is being decided now is what comes after that.

Narrative Warfare: West Taiwan Relies On Banal Bullshit & Bribery

Today I'll turn your attention to West Taiwan, specifically a short history of the leadership issues that plague the Chinese Communist Party. Let's Real Talk is a channel that handles the West Taiwan beat, and she's been very good about pointing out insider operations that flesh out parts of the historical narrative that heretofore were conjecture at best.

She has plenty more on recent events, and you'll find her perspective aligns with that of the ADV China duo and others that (a) know the language and thus (b) know how things work in the mainland.

Speaking of ADV China, Winston cut this video in January and you'll see how this is as insidious as he claims when you think it through.

There is an accompanying podcast episode.

This is the so-called "soft power", which lasts until you start getting the straight dope from people who's been there (like the ADV China duo, or China Uncensored), at which point the propaganda becomes very easy to spot.

The observation I make is that Beijing is not as good as it internationally as Globohomo is; all of the same tricks are done in the West by Empire's Thralls to push Globohomo, but they are far more effective due to (a) better deniability, (b) longer time in practice, (c) superior methods of media control.

The CCP relies on simple brute-force methods of media control, such that everyone knows when they see it and thus knows not to trust it (thus perpetuating the Han low-trust paradigm). Globohomo relies on carefully control fake opposition, Narrative Warfare, and very surgical uses of lawfare to achieve the same ends- and thus the myth of a free press, freedom of opinion, etc. is maintained because the real power ensures that those opinions have no impact.

In short, the CCP is being roundly outplayed by Globohomo right now, and once the collpase of the economy is complete the CCP's attempts to maintain its already-fraying image of power and prestige will be see by one and all for the sham that it is- and that's when Globohomo goes in for the kill. Not only is the mainland not going to succeed at any nationalist ambitions, it will be either destroyed or re-conquered for Empire; expect Globohomo to resume its capital relocation plan--which is what was intended to happen under Jiang Zemin--from its Brussels-London-Washington DC triad to Beijing when this is complete.

Unless, of course, Globohomo collapses about the same time- and that is hardly improbable as things stand. Empire must fall.
