The CIA Torture Report

On December 9th, 2014, the Democrats of the Senate Intelligence Committee published a report of the torture methods employed by the CIA during the War on Terror over the past decade, methods that were authorized under Bush, and carried on under Obama. My reaction can be broken down into three categories: the morality, the tactics, and the context. Let’s take these one by one.

Psychos & The Illuminati 6

Psychopaths & The Illuminati [Video]

One thing that frustrates me is how people assume that Psychopaths are amazing monster, possessed with some evil plan; they aren’t.  They’re broken pieces of clockwork.  They manage to do a lot of damage, but at their core they’re nothing but a frog’s leg hooked up to a battery.

Observations on the Calcification into Two Camps

One of the Historical phenomenon’s we’re currently experiencing is the radicalization and calcification of the “Two Camps”.  This is the forerunner to every major conflict. This time around, it’s not about Nation States, though; it’s a transnational, intra-state splitting.  The two main camps seem to be the Progressives (those advocating for a scientastic materialist utopia) and the Nationalists (the traditionalists, the red bloods, the harsh moralists).  This reflects the divide in American politics, but it’s higher than it – both the Republicans and the Democracts are being subsumed into these two movement, rather than the reverse. On the Left, you...

Incentive Systems & Politics: Part 3

This is the third and final part in my response to Extra Credits’ series of videos by the same name. In Part 1 I discussed how Politics needs to be about more than just winning elections, and provided a few statistics demonstrating the overall decline of our society. In Part 2 I covered how addressing financial corruption doesn’t address the underlying problems. Now it’s time to wrap this up in Part 3. Section 5: Gerrymandering and Community Gerrymandering is the process of redrawing the boundaries of politcal districts in order to be more favourable to you or your party.  You...

There Is No Movement. The Movement Is You

What you need to understand about Evil is that it doesn’t exist in-and-of itself.  Evil is like an infection, parasiting off of, and twisting the nature of the Good for its own destructive purposes. Take Feminism as an example. A rather toxic little critter, ain’t it?  A mind infected by Feminism will do everything in can to destroy the relations between the sexes: not only rendering society infertile through the celebration of Alternative Lifetstyles (of which, a new one is invented every minute), but also by sapping the drive of the Men who’d be building and maintaining the society.  Think...

2014: The Year We Start Building

Just as RooshV predicted, 2013 was the year we went mainstream.  The ABC 20/20 debacle and TechCrunch‘s article on the Neoreaction are object examples of that, but throughout the media we’ve been seeing terms that originated with us filtering out into the wider culture. Folks, we have arrived: we’ve figured ourselves out, we’ve established our community, and we’ve demonstrated our ability to impact the narrative. “First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they attack you – and then you win!” This is the year where they attack; this is the year where we start to build. When I...

Incentive Systems & Politics: Part 2

Summary of Part 1: The goal of government should be the physical, emotional, and spiritual betterment of Man. Democracy selects for the government people want, not the government they need. Parasites find niches between the electorate and the politicians, distorting even the best incentive system. Now on with the show: Section 3: Finances and Fundraising Limiting the amount politicians are allowed to spend on campaigning would remove the distraction of having to be a continuous fundraiser; and would meant that politicians wouldn’t have to balance serving the people, and serving the people who can fuel their campaigns. They begin with...

Incentive Systems & Politics: Part 1

A Response to Extra Credits Introduction As a game designer, James can’t help but think about how broken our political system is.  And by broken, I don’t just mean it’s busted; I mean it’s broken in a Game Design sense.  The underlying rules and incentives which govern our politics are just wrong.  They’re completely out of whack. If you’re not already familiar with it, Extra Credits is a web-series focusing on the video game industry; they cover everything from the development, to the marketing, the design, the social impact, and even the different themes that games explore.  It’s a series...

The Crusades and investing in Silver 4

The Crusades and investing in Silver

A couple of videos I wanted to share with you guys. The first is an excellent video about the Crusades, from a Historian whose YouTube channel focusses entirely on the Crusades. You’ll often hear the Atheistkultist go on about how the Crusades prove that religion is violent, and it needs to be eliminated… unlike Atheist regimes like Pol Pot, for instance (Holodomor? Never heard of it!).  It seems that Atheistkult is utterly unable to distinguish one ideology from another; believing in anything is bad, they say, and all ideologies are equally damning.  So they believe in the John Lennon “Imagine”...
