#GamerGate and 4GW

Mendicant Bias has clearly read his Lind and correctly applied it to #GamerGate and society alike:
We have seen the most important and fundamental values of our society torn down and destroyed by vandals who used the tactics of cultural Marxism to subvert our society. We have seen abominations like gay “marriage”, no-fault divorce (read: his-fault), government-subsidised abortion and freely available birth control, and universal suffrage become “acceptable”—as if these cultural freak shows could ever possibly be considered “normal”. We have seen our most fundamental rights of conscience, association, freedom of thought, free exercise of religious belief, and freedom of action circumscribed, shrunk, and destroyed before our eyes. And we let it happen.

The self-aware man who looks at how this happened will come away with a certain cold appreciation for the tactics of those who imposed this ashen, burning Hell upon us.

When it comes to gaming, we have repeatedly seen how SJW tactics work. They have used the fundamental decency of the average Western gaming consumer against him, by browbeating him into believing that he is sexist if he wants “believable” (i.e. non-ridiculous) women in games, or that he is “racist” if he doesn’t want games to become some sort of absurd paean to multiculturalism, or that he is a misinformed idiot if he thinks that women can’t be just as strong and effective in an FPS game as men.

They are exquisitely good at shutting down dissent. They’ve had forty years to entrench themselves and become institutionalised. And they have succeeded. They did this by capturing the single most important and powerful level of war. The Moral Level of War
He also explains why #GamerGate has been uniquely successful in resisting the SJW onslaught when everything from the US Army to the churches have been overrun like France in 1940:
The cultural Marxists who brought us to this point have used the moral level of war brilliantly, up until now, by bludgeoning anyone who disagreed with them into submission through the threat of being branded sexist, racist, and other double-plus ungood things. To the SJW set, any deviation from “acceptable” modes of thought was and remains Badthink. Hell, they even have their own programming language! (Note the satire.)

But they grew overconfident, and made a huge mistake—giving us everything we need to destroy them, root and branch.

Until recently, gaming “journalists” had a lock on how the consumer viewed the products that they paid for. Games that promoted “social justice” narratives were given high reviews—but when the rest of us actually tried playing them, we often found them to be unplayable garbage, because they sacrificed absorbing gameplay and great storytelling for smarmy preachiness and painfully stupid messages about “tolerance”.

When #Gamergate first broke, the reason for this appalling state of affairs became perfectly clear: the gaming media were in bed, literally, with the very same game developers whose work they were reviewing.

Overnight, they lost their moral high ground in the eyes of thousands of gamers all over the world. And they have continued to lose that support as gamers have mounted a vicious backlash against their immorality.
This is a very, very important lesson to absorb. You cannot win at the moral level of war when crippled by ambiguous values and a lack of moral confidence. This is why the Christian churches that compromise their principles and turn against their own historic values rapidly collapse. Defeat at the moral level of war destroys an institutions raison d'etre; once robbed of its core reason to exist, an institution ceases to grow and rapidly begins to decline.

Mr. Lind and I had a conversation about #GamerGate. He recognized it as an obvious manifestation of 4GW, so it's interesting to see that the students of 4GW see it clearly as well.

Another important related point, you won't have zealous soldiers if they lack the moral high ground. This is how education and churches undermined traditional values, simply by questioning the morality of those positions among young people who were not adept enough to answer the questions and defend those positions.

These young people had their morality shaken, and never recovered. Since then it has been trivially easy for every disgusting practice to gain cultural acceptance, including genocide and civil rights abuses that the leftists allegedly opposed in the 1960s.

It's worth repeating that taxpayers and parents should have been more attentive to what was going on at public universities and schools, as we should be today b/c the onslaught continues even in the few remaining bastions of W. Civ

Hi Vox- I authored that article, Mendicant Bias is my Reaxxion.com handle. Many thanks for the kudos and the props. I've been reading your blog for something like 8 years and have absorbed a great many important lessons from it- indeed, this is where I first learned about 4GW and where I first encountered the writings of William S. Lind. And as you say, I've been reading up on his work.

It is not clear to me yet that we who are pro-#Gamergate are guaranteed to win. But if we keep applying the lessons of 4GW carefully and creatively, we will make ultimate victory over the SJW hordes far more likely. We have them on the back foot and in some cases outright on the run; it should be interesting to see what will happen over the next 6 months.

Blogger Student in Blue February 18, 2015 5:11 PM  

Didact, the only way that #Gamergate will lose is if people lose morale, due to disinterest or whatever since all the truth are on GG's side. The main antagonists are such pathological liars that they are their own worst enemies, and are the easiest source of morale for GG, and as such getting them to keep talking and say something outrageously wrong is the best way to keep winning.

Them being on the back foot and shutting up will be the hardest point for GG in my opinion, because that's when mistaken, naïve people will believe that is the time for reconciliation and that things will be better after capitulation. No, they need to be fired and have their credibility destroyed, but I fear that it will be all too easy to fall for lying platitudes.

Despite what one might think from listening to Pope Francis, God bless him, the Catholic Church will never accept gay marriage. We can't. All the Pope (or any Catholic) can do is pass on the teaching left to us by the Lord via the Apostles and their successors. For 2,000 years the Church has always and everywhere taught that homosexual acts are intrinsically morally disordered and mortally sinful. It has also taught that only the indissoluble, lifelong, exclusively monogamous matrimonial bond of one woman to one man constitutes marriage. These are dogmas of the Church, etched in stone, and they cannot be changed, modified, or negated. Even the Pope himself cannot teach anything else as truth. Were he to do so, he would no longer be Pope, and we'd have a schism on our hands.

The Protestants have already rolled over. The Evangelicals will soon. You may even see the majority if Catholics, even bishops and cardinals, calling for the sanctification of sodomy and the inclusion of so-called gay marriage into the Church. But don't be fooled. Any Catholic who does so immediately excommunicates himself. To be a Catholic, one must believe what the Church has always and everywhere taught. Anyone who does not is no longer a Catholic. It's just that simple.

IF both gamers and anti-gamers ARE anti-white supremacists/anti-racists then this is the salient point that one must start with in objectively analysizing these theatrics. The high IQ "white" male liberationists on the gamer side HAVE NOT MADE THE CASE that their virtual reality should remain free of all other radical liberationists other than to assert that this is simply what they want! Ok... Gamers want a diversity free zone in their virtual reality and anti-gamers want their diversity to pervade all of reality including all of virtual reality.

So again, what makes who right and what makes the other wrong? I "see" just two competing desires both emanating from the same anti-white Supremacist "instinct."

I'd say the side championing "message" over actual fun would be in the wrong here.

It's fine if you want to try put a moral into a game, but when you use it to beat the gamer over the head with it and neglect to put any actual game in your game you've fucked up.

Try playing "Depression Quest", "Gone Home", or "Revolution 60" and tell me they aren't message-filled shit.

Okay, that's not really fair....to shit. Those games would have to raise a few levels to achieve the status of shit quality.

Also, what the hell is with you and all the "white Supremacist" talk? Do you have some specific form of Tourette's that forces you to you to incorporate it into discussions that have nothing to do with your favorite word? Which here would be all of them.

You're never on point when you bring up "white Supremacist" as much as you do. And it's in almost every post I've seen you make here. So I gotta ask, are you trying to get Google to link "white Supremacist" with VP by all your mentions when people search for the term?

I don't like this narrative of "using our decency against us". It fundamentally falsifies what's taking place as well as letting people who fall for this kind of thing off the hook morally, as well as implicitly concedes the enemy's premises, which is the worst thing of all.

If the enemy wins by appealing to our "better nature" than by definition their message really is superior morally! No, they don't win by appealing to our "decency" - that implicitly implies their message is "decent" - they win by exploiting our cowardice.

As Vox says, its about ambiguous values and lack of moral confidence - i.e a lack of courage.

Its quite easy for a self-contained community to simply ignore or reject condemnations from outsiders based on different norms if they simply have the quality of courage. Granted, individuals can't simply ignore prevailing moral beliefs in many social settings - but a self-contained community certainly can, especially one that through its preferences has implicitly rejected prevailing moral norms, and especially within its own community setting.

What they are exploiting is our fear of social sanctions. They are exploiting our weakness not our strengths - not our decency, our fear of social disapprobation.

Tiredofitall...

Me too... There is really only one player on the field. The anti-white Supremacist. And if you are a white male then you realize that this state of affairs means a) you viciously fight amongst yourselves and b) your entire upbringing was geared towards creating in YOU an anti-white Supremacist... Ergo, your entire "education" is in "how not to be a white Supremacist."

This is the first axiom for all white males awoken to the existential crisis.

Those within gamergate are two variants of anti-white Supremacist with the gamer side seeking an unspoken racial solidarity that is not deserved. Meaning, to take the side of the gamers is to reject diversity in all aspects of virtual reality BUT GAMERS do not actually take that view of REALITY, itself. They have conceded, AS HIGH IQ "white" males, that ALL OF REALITY has been diversified... Who's fault is that if not the fault of high IQ "white" males? This last stand is pure self-interest. Just state it that way... That's all.

"zealous soldiers if they lack the moral high ground"

Syrian Christian families helped support moslem women and children when their men where gone only to be turned in by the same when they came back for sword point conversions. Diminitude means moslems will never appreciate what is given. You wont win until you realize like they did in the inquisition that nits make lice.

About gay marriage you have let marriage become such a liability no productive guy with assets in their right mind would want it. The discount Ellen from Glee had a big gay alimony fight.

I've been reading thordaddy's comments on numerous forums and blogs for a long time now. I too find his insistence on using the same five or six phrases to be a tad much at times, but he is correct in his final analysis. It's sort of like looking at a watch, you know that no matter how many times you gaze upon it there's only going to be 12 numbers and one of sixty possible subsets assigned to each one. Do you bitch about it? Ask when it's going to be 137 and a fiftieth fourth o'clock? Don't be ridiculous. Thordaddy is a human watch and right now it's white supremacist o'clock.

There's no shortage of avarice, ignorance, and arrogance to go with that cowardice. The fearful are not smug. There is a remarkable shortage of humility in our current crop of "elites." They lack courage but not confidence; with the common man left abandoned on the field.

I'm assuming you're responding to what I said. In which case... how in the world is it letting them off the hook morally? I made no moral ascribings. All I said was that Anti-GG will cry "uncle" when they've finally had enough and won't mean it whatsoever because they're cowards who don't even value their own promises. They'll go right back to doing whatever they want to when they think they can get away with it if they only get a slap on the wrist.

If the enemy wins by appealing to our "better nature" than by definition their message really is superior morally! No, they don't win by appealing to our "decency" - that implicitly implies their message is "decent" - they win by exploiting our cowardice.

Saying that stopping conflict by appealing to the other side's better nature displays superior morality is absurd. Is the defeated country a moral victor because they surrendered? No, there is no display of "morals" in being given a surrender, but there is one in giving it.

You are missing what I'm saying however. All I am saying is that they will not have learned their lesson if ceasefire is called anytime soon, because they lie, and lie shamelessly. You also seem to be making the fundamental error in believing they think the same way as you, (that GG is better morally means anything to the antagonists). Winning will require being morally right, but that's because the moderate observers will see that and slowly join in (4GW), and the only thing the antagonists understand is consensus and outgrouping, which you need numbers for.

As Vox says, its about ambiguous values and lack of moral confidence - i.e a lack of courage.

Its quite easy for a self-contained community to simply ignore or reject condemnations from outsiders based on different norms if they simply have the quality of courage. Granted, individuals can't simply ignore prevailing moral beliefs in many social settings - but a self-contained community certainly can, especially one that through its preferences has implicitly rejected prevailing moral norms, and especially within its own community setting.


Courage is not even a needed component. I've seen chans get condemned for all sorts of things they haven't done, and it gets ignored not because of broadchested bravery but because of a general disconnect from reality. Omegas and gammas.

What they are exploiting is our fear of social sanctions. They are exploiting our weakness not our strengths - not our decency, our fear of social disapprobation.

Our fear? "What do you mean 'we', paleface?"

At any rate, that is the attempt of anti-GG because social outgrouping is the worst threat they can imagine. But those who were never in the group were targeted, and they are who started this movement.

Terror is the only weapon that works against an intractable enemy like ISIS. Ultimately, unless we are willing to dispose of ten random Muslims for every Christian they kill, we will lose.

How do we beat them? The same way we beat the Japs and the North Vietnamese*: Schrecklichkeit. Pure, industrial-scale mass murder of their civilian population. The Army Air Force in the Pacific Theater was getting nowhere with high-altitude precision bombing; the Japanese farmed out the war industry to zillions of tiny shops and crofters. When Curtis LeMay realized that Geneva-compliant warfare wasn't working, he switched tactics (from high-altitude pinpoint bombing to low-altitude dump-trucking) and weapons (HE bombs to napalm). The results were horrific. On just one night, 9-10 May 1945, LeMay's bombers burned down most of Tokyo and killed 130,000+ people, almost all civilians and most of them women and little kids. By contrast, the United States suffered a total of 106,207 killed in the entire Pacific Theater, and that includes accidents, disease, etc. That's right, kids: U.S. Army Air Force General Curtis LeMay'killed more Japanese in one night than the Japs killed Americans during all of World War II.

Then he did it again, to Osaka. Then Yokohama. Then every other city worth bombing in Japan.

By summer the Japanese military clique was scrambling desperately for a way to surrender. The A-bombs were frosting on the cake. LeMay is thought by some historians to be responsible for the deaths of 500,000 Japanese, both from the firebombings and from famine. (He also oversaw "Operation Starvation", the systematic mining of Japan's ports and harbors, where all the food came from.)

Did he rationalize, dissemble, explain away his deeds? He did not. After the war, General LeMay admitted that if the U.S. had lost the war, he and his men would have been tried as war criminals. "Every soldier thinks something of the moral aspects of what he is doing. But all war is immoral and if you let that bother you, you're not a good soldier."

Curtis LeMay knew the secret to defeating an intractable enemy: slaughter his people and burn his cities to the ground. "If you kill enough of them" he once remarked, "they stop fighting". Nor was he troubled by postwar scruples for having roasted a half-million people alive. As commander of SAC during the Cold War, he would have done the same to the Soviets a thousand times over if he'd had to. Back in those days Americans didn't water down their sins; they knocked them back neat.

LeMay won his war. We will have to follow his example if we want to win ours.

But before we do anything else we have to define what we mean by "we". It's not hard to do. Just ask yourself. "For whom would I be willing to personally burn 500,000 women and kids to death?" Would you brutally slaughter a half-million mostly innocent people in order to protect your wife and kids? Of course. But what about your neighbors? Your county, city, state? The Knights of Columbus? The Shriners? The United States of America? NATO? The UN?

"For whom am I willing to go to war?" When one can answer that question, one will have identified one's own nation -- besides God, the only thing in the world worth killing another human being for.

NOTE: I'm against killing or harming anyone except in defense of self, innocent life, or property, and then only if there is no other choice. I bear no ill will towards any person or group of people and sincerely wish all human beings a long, happy, and prosperous life in this world and eternal life with God in the next.

*Yes, we did beat the North Vietnamese. I'd be happy to explain how.

Men of the West are the injured party in this conflict. Any reconciliation will depend upon our enemies prostrating themselves and pleading for mercy. We own them nothing, but if our generous hearts allow them to live out their days laboring ten hours a day, six days a week on useful drudge work, they had better be grateful. Under no circumstances can they be allowed to rejoin society as equals, and only a traitor would advocate a complete pardon for treason.

Omar... Thank you... That read like a true compliment. Memetic domination would explain a relentless repetition of particular phrases mimicking a universe of the strictly redundant phenomenon, i.e., the one true universal equality. The game is about true and false equations and the collectives that make it so... So if enough believe A = B then this is a practical reality. But practical reality changes as easily and quickly as the individual changes his mind in the instant aggregate. The reality is that as diversity increases the more acutely the "white elite" will be targeted as "white supremacy." And because there is a fundamental death wish amongst our anti-white Supremacist "elite" (to which the fact of increased diversity infers death wish) then they are WILLING to be annihilated and postmortemly eulogized as "killed in the act of liberation from white supremacy."

That might be a way to win a war, if it's your war. The problem is that almost all of America's wars are not America's wars. They're no business of the US. The US does not have the right to decide who runs Iraq, or who governs Syria, or Libya, or the Crimea or the Ukraine. Constantly involving yourself in wars that are none of your business is a good way to get yourself hated.

The US should become energy self-sufficient (which it quite easily could), adopt isolationism as its foreign policy and close its borders. Most of its troubles would disappear and the US would no longer be hated. And the world would no longer be edging towards World War III at the behest of lunatic mouth-breathing neocons.

I think offshore balancing is the A foreign policy for the United States of America. Isolationism would be a B, or under present circumstances a B+. Neocon activism is an F.

The basic point that "almost all of America's wars are not America's wars" is obviously correct. Frightfulness is a loony way to win somebody else's wars; it adds greatly to the diplomatic cost of fighting wars that you should not be involved in in the first place.

I'm not sure how one can believe that America should not be at war with jihad or communism or communist jihadism cloaked in socialism. It seems to me that the America that retains that last bit of genuine white Supremacy should be at with with everything!

Anonymous Titus Didius Tacitus February 19, 2015 11:04 AM  

There's a world of difference between a policy of neocon activist "democracy-promotion" and a defensive policy of resisting the encroachment of sharia along with all other alien authority systems.

The neocons are merely the ones who do control America's foreign policy; if they were out of the picture (which can never happen) there'd be a crowd of other would-be puppeteers eager to resolve their problems at American expense.

So there are two ways to be at war with essentially everyone; one is based on your independence and a firm determination to remain that way, in (defensive) conflict with all the people who would like to own the global hegemon, and the other way is based on lack of independence, really collective slavery to the most aggressive subversives, at which point you fight until they run out of people they want ruined -- and that will never happen, because their target list includes you, dead by all means including war exhaustion.
