Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
AryanSkynet was started to preserve the community that formed around Mindweapon’s old blog, MindWeaponsInRagnarok. Due to his “outing” by the “anti-fa” he had to shut it down, and I was hoping that this blog could fill in as a sort of stop-gap, at least temporarily. I don’t think I have fulfilled that mission yet, but this article, or series of articles, is going to try to highlight, and continue, some of his main themes.
Two main themes of MindWeaponsInRagnarok were “White Nationalism 2.0” and the “Espionage Model.” MindWeapons has his own formulations of these concepts, but here are my personal interpretations.
White Nationalism 2.0 was mean to jettison the worst features of White Nationalism 1.0. White Nationalism 1.0 revolved around things like uniforms, mailing list organizations, heated political rhetoric, and a fetishization of past movements like German National Socialism, European Fascism, and Dixie nostalgia. Many of us believe that the culture has simply made these things obsolete. What might have worked in Europe in the 1930s, or Alabama in the 1950s, simply has no cultural relevance today, and has become merely anachronistic in 21st Century Europe and the European diaspora, including America. This is true culturally; civilians marching in quasi-military uniforms or period gear borrowed by the Klan from Scotland via Birth of a Nation would hit a sour note even if the hostile media hadn’t given them a reputation as sinister at best and comical at worst. White Nationalism 1.0 often engaged in guerrilla military fantasy. William Pierce’s Turner Diaries and David Lane’s KD Rebel make for good fiction, but as a serious strategy they are wishful thinking at best and FBI entrapment at worst.
Instead, MindWeapon proposed a new model: economic competition instead of military confrontation, cultural resistance instead of physical confrontation, and logistics, like Victory Gardens, instead of strategy, like political parties.
Related to this was something Mindweapon dubbed the “Espionage Model.” Instead of thinking in terms of a military infantry or political parties, we should think in terms of an intelligence agency. Instead of thinking of ourselves as soldiers, we should think of ourselves as spies. Instead of wearing our politics on our sleeves, we should practice the Islamic art of taqiyyah – dissimulation – hiding our true motives and deceiving our targets about our true intentions. One of Mindweapon’s most often misunderstood ideas was that of “game,” the idea of interpersonal manipulation taken from the “pick up artists.” I personally often misunderstood him and it took a while to realize that he was suggesting anyone can be “gamed” – understanding human motivations and learning how to manipulate people’s perceptions and emotions are hardly restricted to romancing the opposite sex. One of my favorite formulations of his was “gaming a ‘You Know Who’ you know.” When interacting with a Semite, instead of being confrontational, you could be quite the opposite. It’s not that you would try to recruit one to our cause, but simply alienate him from their cause. He famously discussed the “Jonathans” – Jews that were already disengaged from Organized Jewry, quite likely intermarried, and more interested in fitting in with modern liberal society than joining the ADL here or the IDF there. Why not simply “neutralize” these types, by simply giving them enough space to disengage from the hostile elements of his own culture, thereby denying their faction another foot soldier, another activist?
Of course, it’s almost too obvious to mention, but propaganda is an obvious aspect of an “espionage model” in the sense that intelligence agency, or an overt military for that matter, are always engaging in propaganda of various types. Mindweapon – I like to think taking a cue from me over five years ago – was influenced by the concept of “Mindwar” as outlined in an infamous military paper titled “From Psy-Ops to Mind War: The Psychology of Victory” by infamous neo-con and torture advocate XX and even more infamous Army and practising Satanist Lieutenant Michael Aquino. Mind War was described as “the aggressive convincing of all participants in a war that we will win that war.” All participants, of course, includes not only the opposition but also ourselves. That the internet has provided a cheap and easy way for us to broadcast our propaganda is a significant development, the importance of which cannot be overstated.
Related to the Espionage Model is the concept of “Open Source Intelligence” which is particularly important for us. As we have essentially no budget and operate under a hostile legal climate we have to do things on the cheap and without attracting too much attention to ourselves. Fortunately, open source intelligence methods are available even to us, and this technique has revolutionized even official agencies such as the CIA. Famous, and ostensibly dissident, former CIA agent Michael Scheuer has said that the vast majority of what the intelligence agencies need to perform their key function – decision support for policy makers – is easily obtained through open source methods.
