Bronze Age Pervert & Marketing

Now that the book is close to finished, time to move on to other things.

What we want to do is Inception. We incept an idea. Or, a meme, if you will. That meme is Jim. Either you trust me on that or you don’t, but trust me, the math works out. The most effective meme to incept into Western society is Jim.

But, how do we incept? After all, we are bloggers / anon commenters. Fucking lol. No one takes blogs seriously, least of all myself. Truth is, we are terrible at inception, at marketing.

Consider Jesus. Jesus had twelve disciples spreading his word full-time. Later, a small army. Jim has, what, me and one-and-a-half groyper account on Twitter, spreading his word, part-time. It’s terrible.

Now, the content itself is brilliant. That is the best thing we have going for ourselves. If the world of ideas is like an MMA tournament, our style of fighting wins. But of course, it is not exactly like an MMA tournament, in the sense that we are not allowed to compete like other ideas. Once we were allowed to compete, we’d snowball.

Take Bronze Age Pervert for instance. There’s a dude that knows marketing. He has good form. Us content guys should learn from the form guys.

The thing that destroys BAP every time, is, of course, that while his form is inspiring, his content isn’t that good. At its core, he favors aesthetics. We favor functionality. Functionality beats aesthetics. Zyzz died young and childless, I will die old and immortal. To follow BAP is to follow a life of empty boasting. That is why they call it the BAP trap.

But still. The marketing man, the marketing… How do we do it?

Probably some changes on this blog are in order. Need more entertainment, more flair. Less gloomy. Let the white pill shine through. After all, my girl just gave me a blowjob and said she loves me – how’s Tinder treating you?

We need some sort of conversion mechanism. Some way for people to signal: I’m in. I *get* it. Namedropping Jim is great. Inserting Jim memes on women is excellent. If you can get the high school bully to give nerds wedgies while reciting Jim, that’s when we’re solid.

Drafts are out

Yes yes, the cow has been milked, the rocket has been launched, the book has been written. If you signed up to proofread, please check your email.

If you haven’t signed up to proofread, enjoy the preliminary version of the cover.

Jim quotes

I had included a list of Jim quotes in the book. I think I’m taking them out because they’re too random. But they’re still pretty cool so I’ll leave them here.

On men and their women
Men have to control women. If you fuck without control, you are fucking whores, and that just hurts too much.

It is OK to fuck whores in addition to the women that you possess, but if man does not possess any women, he soon becomes a horribly broken man. He acts as if every day a big fat blue haired lesbian beat him up and took his lunch money. Worse, he acts as if he would be delighted if every day a big fat blue haired lesbian beat him up and took his lunch money, because he would be grateful for the female attention.

On Jews
Jew centric view of the world is obsessive. The Jewish Bolsheviks purged each other. Soros is just a contractor.

On marriage
If you cannot kill a man or have him executed for spending half an hour behind lose doors with your wife, marriage is not enforced on women.

On global warming
I have been ignoring the issue of Global Warming for a while, because it is pretty much settled. Anyone who still believes in Warmism is stupid, crazy, or lying. Usually both.

On evolution
We are risen killer apes. Thus, naturally fierce. We evolved to cooperate better than the competition, but the major purpose of that cooperation was to put a hatchet in heads of the competition. We are naturally inclined to friendship, loyalty, courage, kindness, and reciprocity, the better to destroy outsiders.

On progressivism
Christianity was the basis of European civilization, and now it is dead save for a remnant smaller than mustard seed. Civilizations die with their animating religion, being devoured by demons.

Progressivism wears the religions it has devoured like a monster that dresses itself in the skins of people it has eatn. It has consumed Judaism, Christianity, and most of Islam, though the worst and most harmful religion, Islam, still lives and is fighting back.

On patriarchy
It is almost impossible to have too much patriarchy. Even when women were legally property, as after the fall of the Song dynasty, women tended to get their way to an extent that was detrimental to family formation. All a man can do to you is kill you, but a woman can make you immortal. So women are just naturally more powerful tha men in their proper role as wives and mothers, and tend to top from the bottom, regardless of how little power the law gives them.

Humble bragging at Heartiste
I am old and fat and bald. How do I respond to the following shit test: “if you date a lot of girls then don’t include me. I’m sorry I hate a man who loves to date so many girls.”

On technological stagnation
When Tesla’s cars can drive themselves while their human sleeps in the back seat, then I will be impressed.

When a robot can pick cherries, then I will be impressed.

When a robot can pick up a clothes piled in a heap, sort them, and fold them, then I will be impressed.

Moore’s law in electronics has been driven by photolithography, by lithographic details becoming ever smaller.

The last reduction in photolithographic wavelength, possibly the last ever reduction in photolithographic wavelength, was in 1990.

The last reduction in lithographic scale, possibly the last ever reduction in lithographic scale, occurred in 2007.

Transistor counts are still going up – but chip area is going up similarly. A more interesting metric is the cost per transistor per hertz, which is no longer doging down.

Since transistors and their connects are not getting smaller, increased transistor counts are accommodated by bigger chips, and by vertical integration on chips, which does not reduce price, decrease power consumption, or increase speed. When they announce that they used to have transistors spaced x nanometers, and now they are spaced half x nanometers, they are actually much the same size, but piled on top of each other.

Yes, it was way cool that NASA recently sent a robot to Plut. Less cool that the robot’s battery was half flat because we can no longer produce plutonium 238.

On modern science
Science has been hiv positive since Harvard got the upper hand over the royal society as a result of world war two

Peer review is the method of theological consensus in place of the scientific method.

Some stuff I paraphrase because I can’t find the exact quote

  • Women will crawl nine miles through broken glass to fuck their demon lovers.
  • Life on earth might very well have started by tardigrades crashing on earth.
  • Science leaped forward after king Charles the Second established the Royal Society and made science high status, is in a downward spiral ever after Harvard conquered the Royal Society after World War Two.
  • America cannot maintain its nukes, nor its battleships, which lie chained in harbors serving as democratic brothels.

On his secret to knowing so much
A lifetime of polymath absorption. I study everything.

Booky thoughts

The book is coming together very nicely. I’m excited.

Earlier I wrote that I should not yet have revealed that I was writing a book. I’ve changed my mind. It’s all in the game of marketing.

We tend to be horrible at marketing. Our marketing strategy is mostly: ‘well, we are right.’ Which we are. But being correct is not the same as good marketing.

I once went to a presentation by a self-styled entrepreneur. A millennial. Had his own tea business. All organic and fair pay of course. He had a hipster brand name, hipster logo design, hipster website. But as much as he talked about quality of the tea and the authenticity of tea farmers whom he personally visited, it was obvious he did not care about the tea so much. He cared about being successful and popular. He was a style over content kind of guy.

Anyway, he explained his marketing strategy. ‘Basically,’ he said, ‘the new thing in marketing is anti-marketing. Anti-marketing means you do not do any marketing, because marketing is fake and misleading. Instead, I am honest about my passion and enthusiasm for tea and I let the product sell itself.’

If I had rolled my eyes any stronger they’d have fallen out of their eye-sockets. God damn bullshit marketing techniques. ‘Anti-marketing’. How do they come up with this stuff.

But, his strategy worked. He was blatantly marketing his product while bullshitting about not-marketing his product, but it worked well enough. There’s a lesson here: you always market your product whether you want to or not. Corollary: it is easier to sell bad content with a good sense of style than it is to sell good content with a bad sense of style. Another corollary: if your product is good enough, marketing is your main bottleneck.

From this I conclude that I need to get better at marketing. So I am experimenting with marketing styles. I like the current style: updates as the book nears completion. Wet people’s appetites. Create some hype.

So that’s my thoughts on marketing.

Generally, I enjoy writing this book. It’s a different creative challenge. I dunno how to explain… Even if it’s non-fiction, it’s a story. It’s nice to write and polish a coherent story.

Most of my creative energy lately has gone into book writing, not blogging, and I expect things to stay that way. I have plans for at least one more book on this blog. After that, probably gonna write something that will not be linked to this identity. But I get ahead of myself.

A book of course makes more bucks as well. I need bucks.

What else is there… Oh, a friend has finished the cover art for the book. I think it’s absolutely gorgeous, I am very excited about it. Makes BAP’s book cover seem bland in comparison ;-). I am not yet going to reveal it, of course, because that would be bad suspense-building.

Ehhh oh yeah prize. I am of course selling in BTC. BTC rates fluctuate, so how fair is that for buyers? For instance, when I first sold ‘Life’s Game’ I put the prize at seven euros. But of course, BTC value more than tripled so anyone who bought it back then has now effectively paid about twenty-five euros!

Since my primary audience is American, I guess, my primary measurement value will be the dollar, which at least follows the metric system. So the book will be approximately $9,95 translated to BTC. Not $10,- because that’s bad marketing. And no early bird discounts because that does not fit my marketing style. And ‘approximately’ because I am not sure how fixed I’ll make the rates. Perhaps I can do some thingy where the prize automatically corrects according to the exchange rate. We’ll see.

Have I missed anything? I am test-reading for the third draft, which I’m pretty sure will be the last draft before public proofreading. Currently on page 44 of 107. I test-read about 1.000 to 2.000 words daily, with about 13.000 words to go.

Oh yeah physical copies. Looked into it a bit. Not gonna happen, at least not in the foreseeable future. Perhaps some day!

Cooperation

Cooperation is hard.

There is lots of fighting on the right. Generally, this is because rightists are more successful individuals than their leftist counterpart. Rightists get laid, leftist do not, and being successful means you can be more of an asshole. So rightists tend to hole up in their forts and be assholes.

Of course this is exactly what the left has taken advantage of: the left knows very well how to cooperate. You, a leftist, think you’re better than other leftists? Tough luck dipshit, suck it up. Leftists are good at sucking it up.

But not us on the right. On the right, everyone is a fucking smart ass. Everyone knows better. So you have these thousands of little islands of rightist sitting in their fort, pretending that their fort is the coolest.

We, however, plan to build a huge fort. One that puts the leftist coalition in its place. For this, we need to build a coalition between rightists.

Now, the main strategy so far has been the big tent strategy: don’t criticize those to your right. Which isn’t bad at all. It is related to that other good strategy: criticize privately, never publicly.

But currently we find ourselves to the right of pretty much everyone. We have outholied everyone on the right. Incidentally, this gives us memetic sovereignty, which gives us a pretty decent mechanism to say who does or does not belong to our team. So seems like the perfect time to start criticizing people from the left.

No room for blue pilled men, which is to say, they are free to join in on other topics, but if they start spouting off bs about women, they are put in place. See Neurotoxin.

No room for covert gay propaganda such as Bronze Age Pervert. I don’t think BAP’s content is bad, but in his own words, dude needs to SUBMIT to heterosexual propaganda. Where are BAP’s comments over at Jim’s blog? Dude needs to know his place.

No room for angry bachelors as Heartiste. Which is to say, Heartiste is great on many things, but we are in the business of building families, not digital rolodexes with sluts’ phone numbers.

And finally, no room for rightists who ostensibly agree with us, but never make referrals. Stefan Molyneux is firing off red pill truths on women — has he yet said where all this information is handily summarized? Until he does, no friend of ours.

In other news, I’ve finished the second draft. I am going over it a third time, just for some polishes here and there, but should not be too long until ready for proofreading.

Slowly getting there

The book is advancing at steady pace. I’ve now arrived at the final third portion.

green is where I’m at

I’m doing lots of re-writes. But I think the book is much better this way.

The final part is proving to be the hardest part. It’s basically my summary of Jimianity.

I’ve decided to stick to the name Jimianity, by the way. Not sure if it’s the best marketing wise, but it’s the name I like best. Jimism sounds too much like an intellectual movement. Spandrellism fits that label (coincidentally, Spandrianity sounds horrible). But I think Jim’s ideas are cladistically closer to Christianity than to any -ism, so Jimianity makes most sense to me.

Anyway, I’m putting much thought into the last part. It’s tough. But I remind myself not to overcomplicate things. You just make your content and that’s about all you can do.

Memetic sovereignty

OK have some content.

We boast that we have memetic sovereignty. What does that mean?

At its core, I think memetic sovereignty refers to the power of your memes. How strong are they? Do they have weaknesses? Every meme has weaknesses. But just like in nature, what matters not is if it is perfect, what matters is if it is fitter than all its competitors. And that is what we claim our memeplex to be.

For example, a traditional rightist says: ‘look at all the quotum for female participation. It is reverse discrimination!’ But his meme is not sovereign, for it already accepts the leftist framework that discrimination is the biggest problem of our time, and tackling it our top priority. Use the shibboleths of your enemy, get trapped in Newspeak.

We claim sovereignty because we, in fact, do counter leftists. We claim that we can explain what is going on better than anyone else. That is a flex, but watch us back it up.

Take the recent Epstein arrest. Why is Epstein arrested? Why are the papers full with it? Why are they linking Epstein to Trump?

It is, exactly as Jim says, because leftists are frothing at the mouth desperate for dirt on Trump. They thought Flynn had the dirt and now that it turns out Flynn had no dirt whatsoever, they try with Epstein. Of course the Epstein-arrest is even more laughable, as any rightist knows Epstein was connected to Bill Clinton, not Trump. One can even imagine they bought into the rightist meme that Epstein had dirt on the Democrat elite, thus desperately imagining he will also have dirt on Trump. But we’ve seen how the Russia-collusion went, how the Mueller investigation went, how Flynn went… Well, we shall see how Epstein goes.

So, memetic sovereignty. Good stuff. Not only does it flex our muscle, it supports Trump and his gang of warriors. That is good priesting.

Stuff

I have good news and bad news.

The good news is that the book is coming along swimmingly:

The yellow is where I was proofreading, a few days ago. It goes up to page one hundred.

The bad news is it will take more time than anticipated. Apologies to proofreaders, I should have waited with my announcement, got carried away by enthusiasm. I underestimated how shitty the book’s first draft was. Need to rewrite a lot. Luckily, the picture of the final product is getting clearer and clearer in my mind. I am really liking the second draft so far. But I do not want to rush things.

Currently I have about 12,000 more words to work through, and at my current pace that will take about two more weeks. But no promises. No lets not repeat the same mistake. Let’s say it will take another month. This is silly. I will not name a date. It is done when it is one.

I had some ideas for blog posts, but honestly, this project is sapping all my creative energy. I just don’t have more content to give.

But yeah, a tinkle of content… I’m enjoying summer. Baby’s doing fine. Weather’s good. Spending most of my time doing work around the house. Painting, maintenance, sorting out tools, that sort of thing. Also trying to grow my own weed plant. So far she’s up to fifty centimeters. All good and fun. The tinkle of content ends now. Cheers.

Can’t do science without religion

Rollo Tomassi complains: ‘People, I am just doing science! I don’t want to get political about it.’

Yes, well, Moldbug something something. You may not be interested in politics but politics is interested in you. Same for religion.

We are always ruled by warriors or priests. Currently we are ruled by priests. And they are armed with a religion. Truth, especially if that truth is red-pilled, flies in the face of that religion. And so even though Rollo does his utmost best to distance himself from any religious or political debate, the debate encroaches upon him, as observed in his exclusion from the 21 Convention.

We, in our cultish corner of the internet, also like science, and we want men to do science. Science is awesome. But in order for men to perform science, they need a religion backing their scientific activities. So, either Rollo has to become a cult leader, or, if I may humbly suggest, he kindly takes a look at our cult, which would fully support him doing his thing without interference.

Proofreaders wanted

I have been a busy beaver and finished my next book. It is a hundred percent original content. It is titled: The Resurrection of God. Subtitle: A Reactionary Manifesto.

It is one part Moldbug, two parts me, one part Jim. Well probably more Jim.

It is basically a formalization of philosophy, an answer to Nietzsche, and a summary of reactionary thought. All of course in my own style, with lots of stuff lifted from other people, most notably Jim’s blog. It’s about the length of the Communist Manifesto, 21,000 words, although infinitely more readable. I am going to proofread it myself, but after that has been done, I am looking for others who would like to proofread. Also I want to up my marketing game a little bit, so I am looking for juicy quotes from people.

Also I am looking for a snazzy cover, but so far I have no idea. Suggestions welcome.

To be clear, I have finished the first draft, am currently re-reading and editing it for the second draft. So for public proofreading, probably another two to three weeks.

EDIT: thank you for the response, no more proofreaders needed, we have enough!
