I’ve done some more thinking on the religion problem and I think it’s time to stick a pin in it.
I feel like the point is made, and the point is valid. No religion is permanent; stories stick around for a while, until they grow outdated and are replaced by new stories. From a programmer’s perspective, which I am totally not, you could say a religion is a program for social technology: use this program and succeed. Of course, a successful program attracts hackers and free-riders. Takes a lifetime to build something, takes only one successful attempt to steal something. To counteract this, you patch your social technology. You add new lines of codes to better protect the old ones. In Christianity, the third century added trinity is a typical patch example.
But patching only takes you so far. The program is at its core still the same, and eventually patch safeguards will be bypassed as well. You can add even more patches, but at a certain point you’ve passed the point of diminishing returns and you are better off implementing an entirely new version of the program.
Regarding Christianity, we have passed that point. Selling Christianity at this point is the story of the salesman selling a soup-making stone to an old lady: ‘just add a bouillon cube, chicken and some vegetables, and this stone makes the best soup in the world!’ It’s a tough sell. So that’s what I think about Christianity.
Have you perchance checked the news lately? Shit’s getting crazy out there. Corona has been literally thrown out of the window in favor of burning cities. Trump’s enemies are descending into madness. It’s a total mass psychosis.
First time I heard about George Floyd my first thought was: ‘Really? We’re gonna do Trayvon Martin again? Some lowlife criminal scum got into a fight, it ended badly and we’re supposed to show empathy?’ So I did some reading, and sure enough, George Floyd turned out to be lowlife criminal scum, whose criminal record included armed house robbery. That fucker tried to rob me at gunpoint I’d wack his head in with a baseball bat or die trying. God damn. Dude was also an alcoholic who scammed shop owners with fake money. How the hell is anyone supposed to empathize with this guy?
Of course at this point the left is so frothing mad that they’ll literally take anything as an excuse for chaos, hence ‘George Floyd the hero’, which is just as ludicrous as the ‘peaceful protestors’ going out in his name. I mean, c’mon. Talk about suspension of disbelief. Have you seen what is going on? It is back-to-back black looting and antifa violence. It’s an attempted US color revolution, y’know, where the progressive elite sends out the mob, says ‘wow these people have legitimate grievances we have no choice but to remove Trump as president’ and tries to do so. It’s so fake and lame.
Luckily we have Trump. Damn am I happy we have Trump. You know what Trump did? He teargassed the ‘peaceful protestors’ in front of the white house, reclaimed the park they were destroying, and, I kid you not, walked through the park to stop in front of a church where he held the bible high for a few minutes. Even my girl, who maintains a healthy skepticism of all this dark enlightenment talk, was impressed – perhaps Trump reads Jim after all?
Anyway, the whole display was thoroughly impressive. Trump restoring order in the face of chaos. What a hero. And really, that’s the important thing right now. I can go on about needing a new religion all day, but at the end of the day, Trump is fighting the most important fight, and what he needs is most important. Either Trump quells this and we get order, or he loses and we get chaos; I don’t really believe there is an in-between option at this point. That is the most pressing issue at this point.
The good news is that, when comparing the situation with past leftist singularities such as the French, Russian and Cambodian revolutions, in every case the monarch preceding those revolutions displayed glaring weakness. You can plausibly say it was Louis XVI, Nicolas II and Norodom Sihanouk’s own actions that lead to their demise. Trump is not displaying weakness, none at all. So from a historic perspective, that’s a good sign.
But it also means Trump needs a unified priestly backing. So, here’s what I propose – Christianity is dead and beyond revival, I don’t care what Jim says. But Trump holds up the bible, signaling he wants a unified priesthood. What I can give is historic Christianity: that all that is good and beautiful in the West is owed to our forefathers being Christians. I interpret Trump’s bible not as a sign that we should convert to Catholics, but that Trump wants the same peace, prosperity, law and order as we had during the height of the Christian West. That, I can fully support.
So I’ll stop my resurrection heresy talk. Probably return to Jim’s place eventually. The points have been made, the battle lines have been drawn. Deus Vult, long live the God Emperor!
Bonus: how to discuss racism with your wife
A major power vector of the Progs is the gynocracy – that men are not allowed to lead their women, and that women consequently turn to big pimp daddy the state. Although it mostly takes testosteron to peel away women from big pimp daddy the state, some tact and charm helps. So, how to discuss racism?
Well, first-off, George Floyd is obviously not about racism: it’s about white men using blacks as a meat shield to advance their own agenda.
OK, but racism is still real right?
The honest answer is: yes, it is. But here’s how it works.
Racism is when I am being an asshole to someone just because I hate the color of their skin. It’s unfair. That is racism, it’s a vice, and it exists.
How much does it exist? And I don’t mean how often does it exist on social media, we all know experiencing racism is holy so on social media everyone experiences racism five times a day. I mean, how often have you seen racism happen with your own eyes?
Me, I’ve never seen it. Not once. My girl has seen it once; moved a black woman to tears. So, how big of a vice is racism in society? It’s a minor one. One the same level as people not paying their bills. Are people burning stores and throwing bricks protesting people not paying their bills? Not in a million years. So you can see how absurd the whole situation is.
