Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
“Red pill” is a popular Internet term from the movie “The Matrix”. In it Neo is offered the choice of taking a red pill, which will make him aware of the true nature of things, or a blue pill, which will return him to the reality he was familiar with.
Insights are often easy. You see something and say to yourself “Aha! That makes sense! Now I understand!”
A lot of the time though it’s a long and difficult process. We hold our beliefs because they make us feel oriented and in control- if not of the situation, at least the ability to react in a useful way to it.
The word “denial” is used in psychology to describe a state where the individual has a more positive view of his situation than is rational. This is regarded as healthy because it allows people to approach things in a calm, happy mental state rather than being pessimistic or panicking.
Sometimes we wish we had remained ignorant. Another Matrix character, Cypher, decides to give up and takes the blue pill. For other people though knowledge feels powerful, it feels good, even it is not helpful or useful. Sarah Perry calls this “insight porn”.
If you are reading this you probably believe all kinds of things that are not socially acceptable and regarded by the average person as both morally reprehensible and indicative of mental illness.
I didn’t use to be like this. I used to be pretty normal. From the menu of belief systems, one popular choice is the modern mainstream conservative belief system, as elaborated over the years by the writers and editors of National Review magazine. You can be a liberal too, or anything in between. Actual communists are regarded as little bit over the top but they aren’t regarded as crazy or evil.
I thought I was a citizen of a republic. I was proud of my military service. I believed public debate showed people the truth, and if the majority didn’t see things my way, well, they would come around with a little experience. I participated in the political process as a voter and volunteer.
Things started to bother me though. W showed open contempt for the people who voted for him. Romney wasn’t interested in representing Republican voters, just having them put him in office so he could do what he wanted.
I always thought of myself as a professional, a person with valuable education and skills who would be treated as a valued employee and team member. But employers always seemed to be just trying to get the most work for the least pay, not at all interested in ethics or the law, and threatening me if I didn’t just go along.
My relationship with the government and my relationship with my employer was a lot different than I had thought. So I started to think about things.
The business of thinking about things takes people all kinds of strange places, and here we are. People vary in how far they are willing to take it.
There is one place people are very reluctant to go- what we call sometimes TJQ. This area is carefully fenced off. It’s not exactly OK to be racist, against blacks, Hispanics, Asians or others. After all Jews are frequently racist, and while it’s supposed to be a privilege limited to them, it’s understood if others do it.
Being “homophobic” is a big no-no. Jews are often racist but usually not homophobic. Being “gay-friendly” is the sign of a big city sophisticate, which of course Jews are, and other people are supposed to aspire to.
Kai Murros is pretty out there but is pro-gay and says nothing at all about Jews. It’s like there was an invisible dog fence…….
I avoided this for a long time, but the last year has been pretty rough. Jews- not even but especially elite, respectable mainstream Jews like Jennifer Rubin and Bret Stephens- have gone full Cheka on insufficiently submissive whites.
The truth is getting to the truth is a long, painful and humiliating process. Finding out where you really stand, what people really think of you, and how much control you really have is terrible, if it means loss of status, honor and respect.
So we are playing a different game than we thought we were playing. Maybe this one is better……..
