Warrior, Priest, Merchant, Lover

Archetypes are different parts of your personality, although some archetypes will be more dominant than others. Archetypes are nice, because they are easy on the mind. They are stories, and stories stick well.

Of course there is always the problem of separating useful archetypes from silly archetypes. For instance, every horoscope follows only 1 archetype: ‘woman’.

Here at AlfaNL we accept only the best archetypes. A long time ago I read the book King, Warrior, Magician, Lover by Robert Moore. It’s a book on four male archetypes, per the title. The King is the part of you that rules, the Warrior the part that fights, the Magician the part that uses forbidden knowledge and the Lover is the part your lady likes to see.

Inspired by Jim’s archetypes I have made some improvements, per this blog title.

First, there is, in my experience, not so much difference between kings and warriors. Both fight, both rule, both use force, or the threat of force, to get their way. King is boss warrior, that’s all. Throw it together under one archetype.

Warriors band together in armies and can wield great power; the power of kings and emperors.

Priest is exactly like the magician, just that the word is less magical. To call people magicians is to flatter them, which I, as one with a prominent magician/priest archetype, should know. Priest covers the load better — a priest does everything a magician does, but weaponized morality is a big part of his repertoire, hence the name priest.

Priests band together in congregations and can also wield great power; the power of memes and religion, which, while not as directly effective as the gun barrel of the warrior, does have the advantage of sticking around long after the warrior has died.

The merchant (or capitalist) is an archetype I missed in the book. Merchants are just out to make a buck. Their dark side is greed, their good side is adding nice things to this world. Contrary to priests and warriors, merchants can not cooperate so well, because every merchant is in competition with every other merchant.

The lover is pretty much the same is the book; it is the side reserved for the women in your life, the side that lusts and cares and loves. It is much like the warrior in that the lover conquers pussy instead of territory, but the lover has a soft inner core that women adore and warriors despise.

Aging gracefully

I had already written this post a week ago. Swear I saved it as a concept, can’t find the concept. Hate it when that happens. F*ck it, we’ll do it live.

The at times feverish pitch of this blog is coming to an end.

Thousand of Alf fangirls, in unison: ‘noooooo senpai don’t leave us!!’

Don’t worry, I’m not leaving forever. I enjoy writing too much. For the nearby future, the blog is here to stay, for the longterm future I’m sure I’ll be writing somewhere. But I am writing towards some kind of closure of this blog in its current form.

This has always been a special place to me, a place where I could think freely and explore whatever thoughts I wanted to explore, and see what the internet has to say about them. This blog, as well as everything vaguely connected to it, has been an exciting journey.

I feel like part of that journey is coming to an end. I do not like repeating myself, and I am slowly nearing a point where I have said the most pertinent of what I wanted to say. I’m sure there’s more to say and I’m sure I’ll say it, but in terms of the bigger picture, in terms of what I wanted to say through this blog, I feel like I’m nearing the limits.

Life’s an adventure, this blog has been an adventure. But, there’s more adventures to be had, outside of here. Good adventures, I’m sure, but they are separate from my identity on this blog, or they have outgrown this blog.

I am working on a last AlfaNL project. Too early to drop any teasers, but I will announce in due time.

I still have some posts I need to write off, so the content river will not dry up immediately. We’ll see how it goes.

I started this blog searching for an answer. I believe I have found my answer. All that remains, is to age gracefully.

Thank you for reading.

The solution

The mid-term elections are a bit of a disappointment, but nothing we shouldn’t have expected. After all, the left has dominated Western politics for the past 2 centuries, it would have been silly to expect them to fold like a card house in the face of one strong challenger. The mid-terms have clarified the battle lines drawn in the sand, is all. Trump is  here to stay for a while longer, but so is the permanent government.

So, the question arises: what next? There is an answer to this question, and it integrates the war of the sexes, politics and religion.

Trump remains president by the strength of his personality, but he cannot rule without the mandate of heaven. Who gives the mandate of heaven? Priests. There are priests who support Trump, but they are anonymous, scattered, and out of power. The priests who are in power, the professors, journalists, career politicians, all loudly oppose Trump, and will keep opposing him. Every step Trump undertakes, the mandate of heaven will counter. If Trump wins the presidential election, the mandate of heaven will push back in congress elections. If Trump sends soldiers to the border, the mandate of heaven will send women into the army. If Trump builds a wall, the mandate of heaven will recruit illegals to vote against the wall. They are stuck, until one party escalates thus that things spiral out of control.

The solution for this is to conquer the mandate of heaven for ourselves. We must vest control of the good and evil, and re-define good to once again mean good, re-define evil to once again mean evil. We must become the moral victors.

How?

To conquer the mandate of heaven, must cooperate as a large group. Cooperation on grand scale is difficult, the most difficult problem we face. Man is wolf to other man. We need a rallying point, something everyone can get behind and agree upon in order to cooperate, without violating natural law of men being wolf to other men. This has been done in the past, is in fact being done in the present, by those currently wielding the mandate of heaven. It is called religion.

Religion binds people on a large scale, creates a collective identity, a shared language through which allies may speak freely with each oher. Our enemies employ the religion of progressivism; a peculiar mix of race-focused Marxism, or Bioleninism. In their religion, equality is God, meaning everyone above average is evil, meaning everyone who is good at something is evil, meaning white heterosexual men are evil.

We all see the madness this leads to, and we all scoff at it. But we can not seem to stop it, instead restraining ourselves to those typical disapproving remarks men make in private to one another to show that they are above the crazy. But their scoffing does not turn the tide. This is because we need to fight fire with fire, which we are currently not.

In order to fight fire with fire, need our own religion.

What is the most central core of a religion? It is the prophet. Religion is imitation of, and rallying around, a prophet, a visionary. By sticking to one prophet, one man, we agree upon a common language, a common set of rules men agree upon, in spite of their differences. If one man declares himself to be the moral victor, and enough men respect this man declaring himself to be the moral victor, in time we will take control of the mandate of heaven.

Obviously, this man is Jim.

Jim is a prophet of the modern age, the age of science, meaning he does not engage in miracles as did Jesus Christ. This is not a problem, because just as humanity evolves, so does religion, and perhaps Jim will be found to have retroactively performed miracles anyway. What is important is that he is an avatar to believe in, a symbol to rally around.

By following Jimianity we give ourselves a weapon our current enemies cannot defeat. We attack them from too many angles.

First, Jimianity gives the mandate of heaven to Trump, or in the post-Trump era, warriors like Trump which will surely arise, as we see in Brazil, in the Philippines, in Hungary.

Second, we give ourselves a defense against false prophets, entryists who are already trying to infiltrate the right in order to co-opt and destroy it.

But also, we bestow upon ourselves the mandate of  heaven; Jimianity gives us reason to ignore the media, ignore the universities, ignore warmism, to ignore all the silly shit we complain about in private. Instead, we focus on what is important: to build, to conquer, to defend our territory, to own our women and have children. While our current priest class signals status by ruining their children and self-destructing, we signal status by having families and building lasting alliances. In the long run, this will give us the advantage.

With Jimianity on our side, we will once again have God on our side. Such hope gives us the power and reason to resist whatever temptations our enemies throw at us in hope of sedating us; such as excessive porn, internet, gaming, or drug use. When man tumbles into a dark hole, it is a consequence of being pummeled into submission by the mandate of heaven that declares that man to be evil, but with the mandate of heaven on our side, we have no reason to retreat out of reality.

Thus, we have both a short-term and a long-term strategy. I will always hope Trump will crown himself God-Emperor, but I am prepared for, and not scared of, the worst-case scenario, e.g. chaos, uncertainty or some kind of civil war. I know that while my enemies are filled with hate and unruly women, I will be enjoying my life with a happy wife.

We fight, not just over the course of months, but over the course of decades, even centuries. And Jimianity is the singular most effective weapon we will have.

Rectifying names in psychiatry

I know Scott Alexander is the psychiatrist with the diploma, but really, who takes diplomas seriously these days.

Psychiatry is not as bad as L. Ron Hubbard would lead you to believe, although it is pretty bad. The study of human behavior at its fringes is interesting and much of psychiatric findings makes sense. But of course, psychiatry is downwards from power, and thus pozzed and blinded in many very obvious and very stupid ways.

Psychiatry deals with the intersection between biology and religion at the fringes. This means it is downwards from the state religion; it follows instructions from the state religion in its dealings with the poor, the lost, the loons. In the absence of an official state religion, psychiatry has become a tool of the unofficial state religion to give meaning to it’s patients, with predictable consequences.

The most important consequence being that psychiatry takes itself too serious, that it imagines it should find a panacea for the bane of human existence, much like how the majority of healthcare imagines it should find a panacea for human sickness, while the truth is that both doctors and psychiatrists are, in the overwhelming majority of cases, pretty limited in their options. We see over and over again that psychiatrists invent disorders and theories that are too clever by half, which in the end turn out to be convoluted reinventions of wheels that have been known long ago.

The majority of psychiatry violates Hippocrates’ rule: it does more harm than good.

What should good psychiatry look like?

The overwhelming majority of psychiatric patients are not responding abnormally to a normal system. They are responding normally to an abnormal system. The cases where a disorder is caused by abnormal brain structure, such as fetal alcoholic syndrome, or, later in life, a very hard hit to the head, are outshone 95 to 100 cases where the disorder is caused by normal brain structure responding to abnormal stimuli.

In these 95 cases, psychiatry has little reason to meddle and stick their fingers in open wounds. Thus the role of a good psychiatrist is much much smaller than it is at present.

As for the remaining 5 cases; used to be so that the village idiot was taken care of by the family and community. Lunatic asylums are a byproduct of delegation (or confiscation) of this responsibility by the state. Much like I’d rather see prisons closed and criminals given public whippings or sentenced to death, I’d also like to see lunatic asylums closed. But since we have big cities, not just small villages, I feel that a compromise need be reached. I support Jim’s proposal of 2 healthcare systems: one private, which law-abiding citizens pay for and receive good healthcare in. The other is state-owned and free, reserved for the poor, the outcasts, the loons. To be patient in the latter system is low-status, works on a revolving door basis. Closed psychiatric institutions should be part of the latter system.

Anyway, let’s get down to brass tax and rectify some names.

I’ll show and tell. My show and tell will be crude, which is not to make things simpler than they are. Sometimes they are simple, sometimes they are complex, but in either case a crude answer suffices. I will not engage in the typical modernist approach of disclaiming lack of expertise beforehand; I find this weak and demonstrating lack of confidence. As far as you may be concerned, I am an ultimate expert on all these matters.

Borderline personality disorder
Is pretty much exclusively a female thing, and if not just normal female behavior, a consequence of bad ownership by the father. A borderline women has never felt securely owned, but feeling the instinctive need to be owned, seeks out abusive relationships that mirror the abusive relationship she had with her father. She sabotages all relations she has, in part because that’s what women do, in part because her father did so to her. The cure for this is good ownership — a man who does not take her shit, who teaches her that being well behaved will give her fulfillment and love. Shakespeare’s ‘the taming of the shrew’, so to say. Which is the opposite of what psychiatry does, namely to teach the woman that she is strong and independent, which she knows in her bones she is not.

Self-mutilation falls into the same category. The cuts are a cry for help: ‘stop me from hurting myself, take proper ownership!’ Self-mutilation is a sign that she is not being owned properly.

Anorexia, bulimia; the same.

Sociopaths and psychopaths
Are among the most mythified creatures of psychiatry. ‘Is YOUR neighbor a sociopath?’ Who knows!

Supposedly there is some academic difference between a sociopath and psychopath, but they are pretty much the same. I’ll stick to the word sociopath.

Sociopath is really just a new word for liar. That’s all there is to it. A sociopath is someone who lies, often and without remorse. An entire mythology is built around sociopaths; it is nonsense. Supposedly, sociopaths lack empathy, but most people lack empathy. Supposedly, sociopaths treat other people like pawns, but most people treat other people like pawns. Supposedly, sociopaths do not care about anything, but I know for a fact sociopaths care about things, just like anyone else. No one does not care about anything, it goes against our survival instinct.

In my personal life I have been friends with several men who’d been stamped obvious sociopaths by psychiatrists, and it was always obvious to me that they’re really just like anyone else, the only difference being that they lie with remarkable ease and conviction.

The mythology around sociopaths is mostly build up by females who fantasize about not-giving-a-fuck badboys, and males who pretend to be not-giving-a-fuck-badboys.

Sociopathy is solved in exactly the way the problem with liars is solved: out-group them as liars.

Depression
Is a logical response towards a dysfunctional role within a dysfunctional system. Most of the people who pretend to care about you don’t care about you, the people in power don’t care about you. To be depressed about this is not a disorder, it is entirely logical. Depression is your body telling you that something about the way you are living is not right.

Depression is solved by treating it as a functional response towards a dysfunctional system, as opposed to treating it as a dysfunctional response towards a functional system as psychiatry does. The solution for the depressed person is to find a more natural role in society, which of course is easier said than done, although not impossibly so. For men, owning territory, having a nice job, owning a nice woman, being the patriarch of a family, are the easiest fixes psychiatrists will not tell you about. For women, being owned by a man, having children, not working a job you hate, are the easiest fixes psychiatrists will not tell you about.

Anxiety
In the same vein of depression: a functional response to a dysfunctional situation. Women are more prone to anxiety disorders, because women are more dependent upon their surroundings. Since modern surroundings, especially big cities, are hostile, anxiety is a normal, not an abnormal response. When my girl lived by herself in the big city, studying at a university that hated her, she become socially anxious, developed obsessive compulsive ticks and had to force herself to leave the house. Pretty sure that if left to her own devices, a psychiatrist would’ve wrote long reports about her anxieties, prescribed her medicine and endless therapy, and after a few years she’d have internalized that she was an abnormal person.

Luckily she was not left to her own devices — She met me, quit her studies, moved in with me. All her anxieties disappeared. No more social anxiety, no more ticks, no more trouble leaving the house. Like snow before the sun.

Attention-Deficit (Compulsive) Disorder
A particularly nasty one. ADHD, or ADD, is defined as the inability to sit still for 8 hours and listen to boring men talking, or the inability to, for hours on end, read books that are not interesting. To in response become restless and agitated is normal, not abnormal.

ADD medication is the frontline of subduing men, of telling them something is wrong with them as opposed to something being wrong with the education system. Simple truth is not everyone is cut out for sitting still for 8 hours on end, or for reading for hours on end. Different people, different talents.

ADD is like forcing a fish to climb a tree for years on end, and when it inexplicably fails to do so, diagnose it with Tree Climbing Disorder and force-feed it tree climbing pills.

Anti-Social Personality Disorder, Narcissistic personality disorder
Is merely the reinventing the existence of assholes. Assholes have been in this world for a long time, the name asshole has been perfectly adequate. Like with sociopaths, a lot of nonsensical mythology has been built around these disorders. Supposedly, narcissists view themselves as the main protagonist in their own movie. Spoiler: everyone views themselves as the main protagonist in their own movie.

The only distinctive feature of ASPD and NPD is being an asshole. There are many assholes in this world, and the solution for assholes is the same it has always been: let them be, and if they violate law, a few public whippings. That is all.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
PTSD is a funny one, because it is mostly fiction. Men don’t mind killing; we are descended from killer apes, it is in our DNA to kill. In the minor sense that PTSD is real, it is a response not to actual war, but the feeling that it was futile for you to participate in the frontline of said war, that you were being used as a useful idiot by others, and were not allowed by your superiors to win said war. Once again, an entirely logical response.

Of course, most PTSD cases are merely attention seeking cases. Observe studies in the Washington Post suggesting that 25% of college students could develop PTSD because of Trump, as compared to the 2-3% of WWI veterans suffering from shell shock or combat fatigue. Nothing better illustrates the fact that the common conception of PTSD is a convenient fiction.

Schizophrenia
Schizophrenia is one of the few ‘honest’ disorders. Schizophrenia is, for whatever reason, the inability to cope with reality and a cognitive breakdown in response to it. Since reality can be pretty daunting, often an entirely logical response. In its prolonged state, schizophrenia is what we used to call crazies and loons, and rightly so. The homeless person garbling nonsense is what we label the schizophrenic. Used to be the village idiot, who was taken care of by family and community, now we delegate the responsibility to the state, with all predictable consequences.
