“The Intellectual Dark Web”

A minor rectification of names. The Intellectual Dark Web (IDW) is supposedly intellectual, dark and on the web, but it is in fact just the newest generation of cuckservatives, of controlled opposition. Guys like Sam Harris or Ben Shapiro are the exact opposite of what the propaganda machine leads you to believe: they are the Boring Offline Tours (BOT). Only Jordan Peterson has some semblance of intellect, but unfortunately this interview is the final nail in his coffin as controlled opposition.

The thing about the IDW is that the name just does not apply. ‘Dark web’ implies anonymity, implies speaking truth to power, implies that if you took the dark web into the light of day, you’d be in jail. That members of the supposed IDW enjoy prominent media positions, big posters with their faces plastered on them and sold-out venues tells us they are the opposite of the dark web and that we are once again being conned by the media.

As for the intellectual part; it is absent, or at its very best it is packaging red pill truths in a sugary purple pill coating. Observe the ‘Intellectual Dark Web’ bending like leaves in the wind to justify journalists preaching white genocide, to justify rampant misbehavior by females, to change the conversation from what everyone is thinking into the conversation that those in power want you to think about.

Jordan Peterson stood out as a man of some eloquence and intellect, lending most credence to the IDW, therefore it is the saddest to see him fall so fast.

The earlier linked interview, titled ‘an Invitation to the Intellectual Dark Web’, is a 90 minute interview between JBP and an incredibly stereotypical virtue-signaling leftist, whose main point seems to be that he is incredibly empathic for the disaffected. In fact he is so incredibly empathic that he can’t help but hate happy people and wants them to suffer as much as he himself suffers for the poor.

Naturally his conduct and name, Hurwitz, made my spider senses tingle, and surprise surprise: Hurwitz is Jewish. Every. Single. Time.

When honest, investigative people watch this interview, they thus think: ‘a Jewish journalist writing for the NY Times who is highly involved in the democratic party? Isn’t that an extremely typical description of the radical left Peterson rails against?’

But instead of saying what is on everyone’s mind, Peterson redirects the conversation and introduces his leftist friend as an intellectual beacon of integrity and honesty to all his viewers. Peterson fails the shit-test.

To all of Hurwitz’ aggressive moral posturing, the appropriate response by Jordan Peterson is to call him out on that. That would be to do what is Right. Leftism is after all a giant shit-test: the leftist will agitate wherever he can and take advantage of the disaffected, but if you recognize the shit-test for what it is and call him out on it, you will have passed the shit-test and not be taken advantage of. Leftists are much like women in this sense.

JPB fails the shit-test, and he does this in exactly the same way, when you rub up against your woman and she says ‘not tonight honey I have a headache for the 50th time’ you say ‘oh huh that’s so sad I hope you feel better soon.’ Wrong answer: you were supposed to get the underlying hint and realize the conversation was not about the headache. In interviewing Hurwitz’ as if he were serious about cooperating with the right instead of what he is actually saying, namely wanting to kill the right, Peterson fails the shit-test, fails to speak for the disaffected white men he is said to represent.

Peterson rose to fame because he fought: first against radical left legislation, then against feminists. But it seems he is done fighting and is now breaking bread with our enemies while telling us these enemies are our friends.

The conclusion of the real IDW is that fighting is inevitable and good, and if a man after 2 fights is only seen breaking bread with our enemies, never with our friends, the only conclusion is that he too has become controlled opposition, has joined the BOTs.

To be entirely fair to Peterson, I don’t think it was his intention to be controlled opposition. It just sort of happened that way. We all have to come to terms with the demise of the West, and we all do it in our own way. In mourning, a person goes through different emotions before coming to terms with reality – denial, anger, depression, bargaining, acceptance, in no particular order, although denial is usually first and acceptance last. Peterson has gone through depression, has expressed anger, and is now obviously bargaining with his enemies, hoping for a peaceful resolution. Clearly his enemies are flattering him enough to make him believe a peaceful resolution is possible.

There is no peaceful resolution, at least not one that does not first include war, does not include the dismantling of the Cathedral. If you want peace, prepare for war.

While it is understandable that Peterson does not want to see it, it makes him a pawn to does who do see it, or those who do not see it and do not care about it. Peterson thinks we can talk ourselves out of this mess if we just listen to one another. Mr Peterson, some people just want to see the world burn, and unfortunately these people are running the show and the way things are going, they will have their way before you can say ‘clean your room bucko.’

Final thoughts on the subject.

It probably will not get so bad that you can’t access your own medical file…

… Says the fool. It will very likely get so bad that you can’t access your own medical file, in that it will be such a bureaucratic hassle that you’d rather pull out all your hair than keep trying.

A friend commented that the whole EU privacy law is similar to the cookie laws adapted a few years ago. No one cared, no one still cares, yet everyone in the West loses approximately a day of their life spent clicking the ‘yes I accept cookies’ buttons.

Women tend to take these things very seriously. Very seriously. I suspect part of it is natural female risk aversion, but larger part is shit-testing, by which I mean that women think they find it very important, but in fact they do not, in actuality they care about using societal norms to shit-test every male, which you can only retroactively discover by passing the shit-test and find out that women totally not care about that thing they just said they care so much about. P.J., it is just like women’s supposed hate of rape, which is revealed to be false by women not giving a flying fig about rapeugees. The privacy law version would be something like an alpha male shouting privacy data from rooftops and women giggling about it. Who is man enough?

This comment by Karl was so good it deserves its own post:

Well, you can’t see your medical file because it contains data of other persons too. There is the name, usally in abbreviated form, of the physician’s assistent who entered data into your file – the physician is not allowed to give away data of his employees. Then there is the name of the physician who made whatever diagnosis that is in your file – he’s probably an employee himself so you can’t have that name. Moreover, the file contains time and place of meetings between you and other persons, namely the physician and his assistants – no business, at least in the EU, is allowed to give you such personal data.

Usually your file contains data of test results which were provided by a third party, say a lab that analysed a sample of your blood. So there is name and adress of that third party, name of a contact person at that third party, and an invoice for the tests they made with your sample. Let’s ignore that the pricing, business address of the lab and the listing of whatever tests they made might be protected know-how and focus simply on the penal low regarding data protection, these additional names are also privacy protected data which the recipient (i.e. your physician) must not disclose.

There is still a legal way for you to get your medical file. You have to need it in a professional capacity, i.e you are a physician yourself, and are willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Of course, then you are handling other people’s data in a professional capacity. So that means you have to have a data protection commissioner (no, for legal reasons, that person can’t be yourself). You have to document how you store such data, for how long, and until when, how you ensure that the data is deleted when it is no longer needed, etc…

You didn’t request to see your medical file recently, didn’t you?

No, I did not…

Updated privacy policies are all the hype. Makes sense, since Cambridge Analytics used Facebook data to help Trump get elected. The horror!

As societal trust crumbles it becomes difficult to trust strangers. Unfortunate fact about internet life is that it comes with a truckload of mingling strangers. These strangers of course have vested interest in earning your trust, but the nature of anarcho-tyrannical modernity is such that they can’t help but betray your trust.

The coup-complete solution to this problem is to acknowledge that, the moment you hand over your data to a company, your data is in the hands of that company and they may use that data for evil intentions. If you party in someone else’s garden, you play by the rules of that garden’s owner. Don’t trust the company, don’t share your data. As simple as that.

The coup-incomplete solution is to give the impression you’re solving the problem without solving the problem. Say you’re really sorry and it will never happen again.

How to assure people it will never happen again?

By publishing monstrous documents detailing every possible situation with every possible piece of data. No one reads them, no one fully understands them, but you show everyone you’re taking this very seriously!

Paraphrasing burn the bureaucracy:

The purpose of bureaucracy is not efficiency, it is compensating a lack of trust. Compare the 1787 American constitution (8000 words) with the 2010 Affordable Care Act (360.000 words). Lifelong friends need only a few words to understand one another. Lifelong strangers demand a multi-thousand word contract be set-up so they can’t be screwed over.

The irony is of course that people will be screwed over despite multi-thousand word contracts. It is a Jimian truth that if a company very loudly shouts that your data is safe with them, it is obvious that your data is totally not safe with them. Considering that all companies are shouting very loudly that your data is safe with them, this does not bode well for the future.

In practice, whatever problems the byzantine policies and laws solve in terms of public anxiety, they create in terms of shifting the focus from Getting Things Done to Please Don’t Sue Me. I’ll wait for the moment where I request to see my medical file but the doctor refuses because doing so would be against privacy laws.

A dying society

Ours is a dying culture.

This seems to be the most important insight.

We thought we rid ourselves of ‘religion’ (said with contempt, like how Marx would say ‘bourgeoisie’) but instead we’ve replaced a functional religion with a dysfunctional religion.

Society is made up of warriors and priests, because men need to specialize. The warriors provide the what, the priests provide the why. If the why is blind hatred of white males, both the why and the what become festering swamps of hypocrisy.

The Western modern empire has peaked. Our values are now covetousness, self-pity and hedonism. Our women are leaving us while downing anti-depressants and birth control pills like chocolates. Our men are escaping into video games, porn and drugs. This democracy and its culture will collapse.

Democracy is an irreversible failure, exactly the kind of disaster you’d expect if you’d force 200 people to live together and make all decisions by vote.

Culture is horrific. Architecture, books, movies, tv… Everything good is old, everything new is… tainted. It is not just that it is pretentious and vapid. It is the sound of a dying animal. Even YouTube, I have concluded, can not help sounding like a dying animal, despite some of its content creator’s best intentions.

Culture from the elite is pretending collective suicide is high status, culture from the fringes is escapism or silent protest, although mostly escapism — sells better.

Economic feedback loops are breaking down. I no longer expect companies to deliver me good products and service, I just hope they don’t screw me over too hard.

Technological advances can not mask currency abuses much longer. Inflation is creeping up like The Nothing in the Neverending Story. When I told my grandma what I paid for rent, she did not believe me at first.

Who will save our dying society?

Christianity in its current form can not be revived. Christians are too cucked. Christ does not offer them enough tools to uncuck.

Trump (praise be upon him) can not save us, because even if Trump understands and prepares for war, he is only one man, and I do not believe he prepares for war.

Alt-rightists dream of avoiding the collapse, but their frustration with the flaying brandname Alt-Right betrays their inability to stop the collapse. + alt-right thots lol.

Rational, normal men will not save us, because their testosterone is too low and their thirst for entertainment is too high.

Jordan Peterson will not save us, because he tells men to grow up without telling men society is rigged to stop you from growing up.

Scott Alexander will not save us, even if he is a luminous beacon of intellectual honesty and curiosity and clear thought and OK lmao couldn’t get through that with a straight face.

Pewdiepie will not save us, because Pewdiepie won’t say it is OK to hit your women, only sarcastically insinuate that you must Respect Wahmen.

Roosh will not save us, because need fathers.

Nope, it is neoreactionaries, in the broadest sense of the word, with all Spandrellian linguistic notes attached, who are on the money. Neoreactionaries head for the exit, rightly so.

We are at the forefront because we have the right diagnosis. Other doctors are quacks, not us. So, we morally elevate ourselves as the priests of the New Religion. It is not a matter of arrogance, it is a matter of necessity.

If you’re partying in another’s garden don’t be surprised if you get kicked out

For fans waiting on the next installment of the Orb of Covfefe — it’s coming. Just gonna take a little bit longer. Fiction is hard.

In the meanwhile, let’s see what’s up with Dutch mixed fraternities nowadays… Oh, a chapter of the most important one is throwing a party? Sounds like fun, let’s check the invite!

The opinion of a woman #don’tdo

The opinion of a women #don’tdo? And beneath that: from groupsex to childluring, what scandal will you get involved in? Sounds like quite some party! Let’s check out the official invite, translated for your viewing pleasure.

“One can find sexual border-crossing behavior¹ in all cultures across the world. […] We of [fraternity] course find this beautiful. That we can assault women since 1958 without questions asked is a luxury other men do not get to enjoy. […] However, the weaker gender has started a countermovement: #metoo. […] To keep our traditions high we naturally have to put an end to this. And what better opportunity than the upcoming [fraternity] carnaval! Because we of [fraternity] know better than anyone else that women have nothing to say about their body during carnaval.

The opinion of a women #don’tdo!

Honestly it is a bit crude but I can’t help but chuckle. This invitation is what the Dutch would call ‘studentical’; brazen but funny. It is also the sort of invitation that women will be indignant over, but once it turns out the invitation is issued by powerful men they will not mind one iota.

Unfortunately these men are no longer powerful. As I have said before, fraternities are an unprincipled exception. Student societies derive their power from the universities, but the universities hates hates hates männerbunds that treat women like sex objects. In other words, we’d expect the above behavior to be intolerable.

And, surprise surprise, that is exactly what happened. The media picked it up (MYSOGUNISTIC OUTRAGE), the university has cut funding and the fraternity has to grovel if they ever want it back. If you’re partying in another’s garden, don’t be surprised if you’re kicked out.

 


¹ Isn’t it interesting that ‘border-crossing behavior’ is a well-known Dutch phrase for bad behavior?

Sinterklaas bleeding, but not dead

I. Sinterklaas & politics
I wrote about Sinterklaas in 2015 and 2016.

Originally I was going to title this ‘Sinterklaas dead, but no dancing on the grave’ but after observing current events I have become more hopeful.

It turns out that most Dutchies like Sinterklaas and Black Piet (pronounced Peet, plural Peeters). In fact, many are distraught by the sudden assassination of Sinterklaas. Change has come quick indeed: 5 years no one gave the colour of Peeters a second thought, except, surprise surprise, the international community attending Dutch liberal arts & social science universities.

It has now become clear that the change came in 2014 when a United Nations tentacle called The Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent decreed that Sinterklaas and his blackface Peeters were racist and evil. Promptly the media, professors and politicians announced Sinterklaas was evil and suddenly Sinterklaas morphed from a children’s tradition into a politicised fight between adults.

3 years later, what is the damage? The cathedral being the cathedral, it has killed the official Sinterklaas. This is apparent through the Sinterklaas journal on tv, where Sinterklaas is surrounded by weird white men instead of his trusty sidekicks. It is similarly apparent through his official arrival in Dokkum, where it has been made sure that a Peeter close to Sinterklaas is as obviously fake as possible.

Sinterklaas in the Netherlands, 2017

BUT, a resistance has sprouted. When several buses of Social Justice Warriors from Amsterdam went to Dokkum to ruin everyone’s day, this resistance blocked the highway and forced the SJWs to go back. Locals planned to set up even more barricades. Because of this grassroots resistance, the mayor of Dokkum declared anti-Sinterklaas protests illegal. I’ve also heard that in other towns, during the arrivals of non-offical Sinterklaases, black Peeters were painted more black than usual. Impressive!

II. Sinterklaas & Children’s rite of passage

Sinterklaas, not in the Netherlands

Though the tradition of Sinterklaas is likely derived from Germanic fertility rites, the original Nicolas of Myra (280 AD) was always known as a patron of children. Sinterklaas has always been a festivity for children — he visits every year with his helpers, the black Peeters, who dance and smile and give candy and presents to good children. Bad children get twigs and salt. How does Sinterklaas separate the good children from the bad? He carries with him a big book in which he keeps note of all the good and bad stuff children have done.

Sinterklaas is a rite of passage for children. Every kid believed Sinterklaas was real at one point until he no longer did and then asked himself how he could ever believe something so obviously fake was real.

Through Sinterklaas kids learn about many things, such as:

  • The difference between good and bad.
  • That there are adults who care about children.
  • How to behave as a wise old man.
  • Assabiyah.
  • And, finally, the happiness low-IQ people have and spread when they follow a wise leader.

This last point especially triggers leftists to no end, thus betraying leftists’ utter contempt for low-IQ people.

#metoo is societal meltdown

#metoo doesn’t seem to have stopped with Weinstein. It seems those in power have quite some trouble putting this genie back in its bottle.

#metoo is a minor meltdown in elite society, representative of a bigger breakdown in Western society.

Women have attained much power relative to history, yet retain the same insecurities women are wired to retain, insecurities which progressive culture only exacerbates. Dating culture is hell. City life is harsh and lonely. Working hours are long. Anti-depressants have mediocre effects. Stress, anxiety, frustration builds up until it finds a vent in the form of a nuclear shit-test. ‘Why are we so unhappy? We were raped by [all men]!’ 

Progressivism made this attack possible yet has no defence against it. Hence, leftism eating itself.

The question is raised whether shitlords should be happy or scared with these developments. One the one hand I could not give a crap about Hollywood celebrities, cesspool of degeneracy they know they are. Boomers loved Kevin Spacey movies, let them swallow this black pill. One the other hand it is pretty clear that Every man now stands to be accused of rape for looking wrongly at a woman.

After thinking it over, I am happy with these developments. Male sexuality has already been pathologized some years ago (hence the rise of the manosphere). The only change is that men that traditionally were exceptions to the rule (e.g. the Weinsteins) now no longer are. To see my enemies turn one each other; this is only a good thing.

In case you were wondering, yes, the craze has caught on in the Netherlands. Take for instance the curious case of journalist/writer Jelle Brandt Corstius. During his stint as regular guest on a talkshow, Corstius accused an unknown man in the Dutchywood business of drugging him 15 years ago and forcing him to perform oral sex. It was only when this man tried to anally rape him that ‘a survival instinct took over’ and Corstius escaped. That unknown man turned out to be Gijs van Dam, a producer, who, with his lawyer, appeared on a consequent talkshow. There van Dam says that, yes, sex did happen, but it was consensual between two drunk men. He was 25, Corstius was 24, they were both young talented sexy men. According to van Dam It was a one time thing and after they went separate ways he didn’t think of it again. Until now of course, since Corstius brought it up on national tv. (Spicy detail: Corstius has a wife.)

The case will now go to court — van Dam sued Corstius for defamation of character, Corstius sued van Dam for rape.

Popular opinion on this is mixed but leaning towards van Dam. I say Corstius lies and his physiognomy shows it. But let’s see what our non-Dutch readers think! 2 pics, 1 is Jelle Brandt Corstius and one is Gijs van Dam. Which is which?

The most liked tweet on twitter…

Is Obama quoting Nelson Mandela.

Screen Shot 2017-08-21 at 14.43.55

That same Nelson Mandela singing about killing whites?

Yes, the very same.

I don’t know what the take-away lesson here is. Leftists want to see the world burn? Lies sell? History revision works?

Ah well. If evil wasn’t powerful, being good wouldn’t have been as interesting.

Female id speaking through the radio

So today I turn on the radio. First song:

“I might hate myself tomorrow
but I’m on my way tonight
at the bottom of the bottle
you’re the poison in the wine”

Ah ok a song about a girl who can’t help herself banging a badboy. How depressing. I switch radio station. Another song comes on:

1. Don’t pick up the phone, you know he’s only calling cos he’s drunk and alone
2. Don’t let him in, you have to kick him out again
3. Don’t be his friend, you know you’re gonna wake up in his bed in the morning
And if you’re under him, you ain’t getting over him”

Yeah I’ll put 100 bucks saying she is going to break her rules. I give the radio one more shot:

“After three, after four times
Why did I bother?
Tell me how many more times
Does it take to get smarter?”

The answer to that question is: probably well into your thirties. I turn off the radio. [1]

Really you could spend a book analysing the female id through modern music, but the baseline is rather obvious: emancipation has turned women into sluts and even though they hate themselves for banging a never-ending line of badboys they just can’t help themselves. Women need a strong male hand and in the absence of such a hand search for an even stronger, more abusive hand.

From an evolutionary perspective, current female behaviour is a logical response the breakdown of Western civilisation: if the civilisation-cart is falling apart, women have no incentive to bang the losers pulling said cart. Better to jump ship and bang outlaws, because outlaw-kids have a better chance of surviving in a collapsing society.

So in this sense women are ahead of the curve. Civilisation is defecting on them, so they are defecting on civilisation harder. Thus correcting female behaviour on a societal level is a coup-compete problem: need to reinstate patriarchy.

A problem is of course that female misbehavior further accelerates the downfall. Reuse sticky tape too often and it loses its stickiness. A woman who has passed the point of 20 dicks, 5 tattoos, 2 STDs and 1 abortion is a woman ready for a lifetime subscription of anti-depressants. High anxiety, low joy of life. And Western civ is breeding multiple generations of these women. #Sad.

 

[1] Ok actually I already turned off the radio after the 2nd song, but the 3rd song fits the theme well no?
