Thesis statement: The toxicity of ideology that informs the current drive for “social justice” helps conceal an inchoate, narcissistic and infantile cry for personal revenge, sourced in childhood and ancestral traumas. It will not be satisfied until it has completely replaced organic existence with a lifeless simulation of its own fractured image.
“Keep what’s in you stuffed down and it will eat you alive. Let it out and it may just save your ass.” — Jesus to Thomas, according to some book.
Have you ever wondered why, or marveled at how, so many “social injustice” charges and arguments seem to be borderline incoherent and about as historically realistic as a Hollywood biopic? What I will here re-term (in the interest of accuracy) the social revenge rhetoric aims, like Hollywood mass product, for illegitimate emotional persuasion. It proceeds primarily by feeding, and feeding off, a sense of outrage and indignation over so-called social injustices and inequities, past and present.
“The Patriarchy” is the primary scapegoat for the social revenge fantasist (SRF), a Paper Tiger made out of memes and ideological implants that (ironically enough) have been assembled and installed by a hidden cultural elite, one that has had control over education and other systems for a very long time (see The Vice of Kings).
This cryptocratic cultural elite, as far as I can discern, has no particular racial or sexual constitution, i.e., there is no direct correlation between it (the so-called Patriarchy) and white males, per se—or at least no more correlation than it has with apparently positive aspects of culture and history. The problem—or pathogen—being identified is more than merely skin deep.
Admittedly, there’s a significant overlap between white men and oppressive regimes, but it’s very, very far from a 1:1 ratio. Perhaps more to the point, even if it were a 1:1 ratio, correlation is not causation. To give only one example, Brian Hayden’s work on prehistorical secret societies shows that elite aggrandizer control groups and “whiteness” have no historical equivalency whatsoever. Indigenous (brown and black) people have exploited and abused one another (and other races or tribes), in the same ways as white people, over the centuries and millennia.
This is an unpalatable fact to critical race theorists and identity police: All colors and races (and even sexes, though here we might need to narrow it down to an individual level) oppress across a class and power divide. Such a divide may then include racial pretexts, stereotypes, and prejudices, but these latter are merely a means to the oppression, and not the cause. Even class might be seen as the result of aggrandizer domination and not the cause, which remains conveniently unidentified.
All that’s really clear is that there is a certain type of human behavior that leans towards the exploitation of others, and another type of behavior that tends towards submission and compliance. Between them, these two tendencies of the human organism and psyche lead to social arrangements that are rife with inequity and injustice. But—and this is the key—the true causative agent in the oppression of humans by other humans remains, to this day, unidentified.
Worse, no one seems to be looking for it.
Aggrandizers & Opportunists: Know How to Spot Them
“Opinions are like assholes; everybody’s got one.” — Dirty Harry Callaghan
National socialism scapegoated Jews (among others) because scapegoating was central to their methodology, ideology, and, at a deeper level, to their psychology (i.e., to human psychology, cf. Rene Girard). Now Israelis scapegoat Palestinians for the same reason. All ideologies converge because they are means to an end, an end which both serves and is served by a methodology. End and means are interdependent and equivalent because they are both effects of a hidden causative agent or agency. In order not to leave this occult space entirely empty, we might call it generational traumata (cf. Lloyd de Mause).
The horrors and injustices of “history” (itself a necessarily fictional construct) are a matter of opportunity and of scapegoating. Where there is an opportunity to oppress and exploit, it is taken. The degree of successful exploitation determines the divide between strong and weak, oppressors and oppressed, rich and poor. Because of generational trauma, unhealed wounds, ancient vendettas, given the opportunity and the means, any race, sex, or class will tend to oppress another, and so become the dominator group. If we don’t find evidence of this, either we aren’t looking hard enough or the “history” we are examining hasn’t been documented thoroughly enough.
Race (and gender, and sexual orientation) is the red herring that perpetuates the fog of an endless war—one that serves hidden forces that depend above all on remaining hidden: on never being identified. One ironic result (among many) is that, as author Alexander Adams points out, social justice has now largely supplanted actual justice, something few revenge fantasists care about anymore.
Remember when leftist activists cared about US foreign policy or the underclass? Now they are too busy virtue-signaling and moral-outraging and posturing and platforming to build a better world—or a bigger soapbox from which to assert their version of history and reality. And in the process the underclass has become the enemy, a legion of deplorables (how exactly did that happen? See an upcoming chat with Adams on The Liminalist). Meanwhile, behind all the posturing, the hidden forces of aggrandizement continue to exploit, oppress, and recruit, and no amount of revolutions bring us any closer to escaping the roulette wheel of history. The House always wins.
The real issue which the social revenge fantasist raises and brandishes like a flaming sword of infant boo-boo is emotional and personal, not social or political. They are offended and chagrined, and that is the issue. All charges consist of a personal charge, and behind every call for social justice is a (deeply narcissistic) emotional demand. If we accept the charge, we are instantly placed in a no-win position, because anything we say to qualify our error (to assuage whatever may have given offense) feeds the illusion that the “charge” has meaning.
What seems to work better is, not to double-down, but to be the opposite of apologetic. To grovel does not elicit mercy from the social revenge fantasist but only satisfaction. It confirms their righteousness, and our guilt, in their eyes. And since nothing will satisfy the gnawing hunger at the core of the offended infant psyche, the punishments continue to rain down upon us the more penitent or compliant we become. When zombies want brains, reasonable discourse will not deter them.
Put differently, the only thing that can dispel fantasy is reality. The more we succumb to a runaway delusion the more we feed and fortify it. The narcissistic and infantile ego cannot tolerate reality, and the zombie virus cannot live without brain food.
The Best Defense is Zero Offense
“Resist not evil.” — Some guy who gets misquoted a lot.
It would be a mistake to think that it is the injustice that causes the outrage of the SRF. Rather, their latent sense of outrage seeks justification by finding evidence of injustice, and then puffs itself up with a mission to rewrite history and remove all traces of racism, sexism, etc. Since history is seen as an affront to their sense of rightness, it must be redacted to wipe away the stain of Patriarchy. Ironically, the same energy that wishes to punish the white man tries to do so by redacting all his sins? How ironic! Cui bono, one may justifiably ask.
The irony is virulent rather than redemptive, however, because canceling every element of culture in order to correct its course only perpetuates the need to find more injustices to justify (and feed) the sense of outrage fueling the sacred purge. Remember the Inquisition? This gnawing hunger for revenge can never be satisfied by hollow cries for justice, or by any amount of social reforms. Only blood and bone (and brains) will satisfy it.
Any attempt to force reality to conform to a deeply-held delusion requires constant renewal—and ever increasing levels of violence—because reality is what never goes away and will always encroach upon, and threaten to dispel, the delusion. Hence, the social revenge fantasist is forever doubling down and finding new causes for outrage, in exact proportion to the demand for the destruction of evidence of old ones.
And now for the good news: to defend against the charge of the social revenge fantasy brigade requires no defense at all. A delusion is no threat to reality. Zombies move very slowly so the main thing is not to stumble blindly into their midst.
All that’s required when faced with the SRF (and this includes especially the SRF within) is a heroic non-reaction, a willingness and ability to resist the urge to dance to the mad piper’s tune. When met with neither groveling nor indignation, the social revenge fantasist’s attack is a soap bubble that barely makes it past those angrily puckered lips. Without an echo chamber to reinforce it, the delusion dissolves on first contact with reality.
Not that a SRF, frothing at the mouth and waving their fists, demanding tolerance and compassion, can simply be ignored. Like cancer, and like a horde of zombies, ideological insanity is virulent and requires close watch when it enters into our field of engagement. The best response is to Keep Calm and Ask Difficult Questions (or even simple ones). Any halfway sensible question will expose the emptiness of the jargon that is being employed to deliver the “charge” of outrage (the jargon is the hoop that creates the toxic soap bubble). This leaves the SRF with nothing but those same inchoate feelings (the trauma-affect of the ancestral load) that all their arguments have been constructed to deliver.
Make no mistake: the aim of ideology is to turn bodies into hosts for non-sentient programs. This methodology (which is ancient) depends on manipulating charge, deeply buried emotional content; like buried plutonium, the charge is highly reactive and only needs the correct “trigger” to be attached in order for it to blow up in our faces.
Critical race theory (recently in the MSM for being targeted by the Trump administration as “unAmerican”—oh the irony!*) is just one of a number of ideological “disciplines” (memeplexes) which the education system (at least since the Fabian Society—see The Vice of Kings) acts as a Trojan Horse to install in the collective psyche. The ideology of identity politics, intersectionality, CRT, etc, acts as a language-and-concept-matrix to hijack the cognitive and perceptual faculties of the host body (human beings) and redirect its energy down specific channels. The plutonium of ancient ancestral and childhood trauma is wired and weaponized, then made to either explode or irradiate, on command, in carefully directed ways. It is a controlled demolition of the human bio-system.
At the deepest level, a collective harvesting of humanity’s life force energies is being geared and levered towards the feeding of the-Great-Satan-by-any-other-name. This technocratic AI memeplex of ancestral insentience is designed to provide organic landing points (host bodies) for hordes of hairy, hungry ghosts to zero in on. Like a swarm of intergalactic tics, they graft themselves onto the body of the Earth to suck it dry of every last drop of its vital essence, using humanity as the plug-in points.
And all this under the auspices of peace, love, and social justice? Fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony.
*Here the irony, which is by schismogenic design, means that, by mentioning CRT, the author can be branded as a Trump supporter.**
**Ironies multiply: for the ideologically blinkered, the above can be read as suggesting that I am anti-Trump, or, even more onerous, pro-Biden. Regular readers know that I have no skin in the game so far as what sort of human-suit a Reptilian wears.
