Good news, bad news

For fans of my writing.

First, the bad news: Book Two of Arts of Dark and Light, A SEA OF SKULLS,  will not be published this year. The cover is done and it is awesome, the story is proceeding well and I'm told that it is better than A THRONE OF BONES, but I'm only 200k words in and there is no way I can finish it and still publish the other books Castalia is committed to publish this year, such as the three books of THE STARS CAME BACK, THE 4GW HANDBOOK, and RIDING THE RED HORSE Vol. 2, among others. It's just not possible, as there aren't enough hours in the day. I am still working on it, however, and my reasonable estimate is March next year.

The good news. I will publish a book this fall, most likely in September, and it will be a non-fiction book entitled SJWS ALWAYS LIE: How to Defend Yourself From the Thought Police. The meme is rapidly spreading, more and more people are understanding that the First Law of SJW is both a truism and a reliable metric, and everyone needs to know how to defend themselves against an SJW swarm. And based on who is writing it, the Foreword may well be the best part.

Since nearly everyone here is either on the anti-SJW front lines or is an observer to action on that front, I'll be interested to know what elements you think need to be there in order for SJWS ALWAYS LIE to be reasonably comprehensive.

The SJW book will be a much needed resource. Lurking here for years has been great, but it's tough for me to distill a concise "how to" re: defending against SJW's to others who have a limited attention span, and no desire to dive into this topic. Hopefully, your book can serve it up on a silver platter for folks that are just north of MPAI.

SJWs Always Lie sounds like an awesome book. I don't expect to find much new myself, but who knows? I will buy anyway and expect that it will be a fun read.

Vox, some items for inclusion I'm sure you've already considered:

1) how to punch back in an individual or organized fashion (frankly Trump is doing an outstanding job at this but he has status)
2) how to reframe these attacks to disarm SJW's
3) pre-emptive efforts (for instance on the 2A front) with language that disarms SJW's. for instance it might help if gun rights supporters expressed it as a civil rights issue
4) what types of future tactics we should expect from SJW's as they adjust to the new reality

Anonymous karsten July 15, 2015 9:10 AM  

For what it's worth, I think you've made the right decision as to how to allot your time, in publishing the SJW book first. There is hardly a more consequential topic in existence. And I very much hope that you will put it out in paperback as well as in "e" form. This is a book that I will want to gift to more than a few of my friends, and promote it to others, and doing so with a physical copy to show always makes a better impact.

Blogger Nate July 15, 2015 9:11 AM  

Vox... there absolutely positively has to be a chapter on why one should never apologize.

I would suggest the best way to organize it would be to lay out how an apology is always a confession to a SJW... and then I would relate how the SJWs never forgive anything ever. Then... I would provide several detailed examples of how apologizing actually ended up destroying people... and show a couple examples of those who did not apologize and ended up winning.

Blogger Nate July 15, 2015 9:16 AM  

Another topic that needs to be highlighted is the irrational nature of the SJWs... for example they scream RACIS! but idolize rabid racists like Sanger and Che. A major point of innoculating people against SJW attack is to get them to understand that it is not a rational attack and therefore it cannot be reasoned with.

You are too busy to write your own books because you are too busy publishing other people's books, because you haven't delegated the publishing because nobody could do it as well as you.

That's not an hours-in-the-day problem, that's a can't-let-go problem. You need staff.

In this day of instant world-wide communication, there MUST be one other person on the planet who could help out. Find that person. Free yourself from your self-imposed chains. Set your books free.

Blogger Shimshon July 15, 2015 9:18 AM  

The importance of numbers. Just because you and a possible cohort doesn't agree on every issue doesn't mean you can't come together on specific goals. Like the Irene Gallo battle. Even though it is, so far, a loss, it is still a great model for proceeding.

Even though GamerGate is basically leaderless, sometimes a leader...say, a certain Supreme Dark Lord...is necessary.

Also, cover "moderates" and how poisonous they are and how to spot them and marginalize them.

Which also brings to mind the importance of focus. Do not get sidetracked by internal disputes.

The dialectic/rhetorical divide, and why discussion with SJWs is useless and demoralizing.

The various strategies SJWs use. Entryism...

There should be a hardcore chapter.
Not hardcore as in "this is how you burn down your life", but rather, this is how you cause maximum SJW casualties as a:
.employed wage slave in SJW territory
.Employed wage slave in semi non SJW territory
.self employed fragile
.self employed anti-fragile
.self employed anti-fragile with clout.

The aim of the chapter should be on how to cause harm to SJW ideology for fun and profit.

I recall Milo is working on a GG related book, an exposé as I understand it. SJWS ALWAYS LIE: How to Defend Yourself From the Thought Police seems a form of compendium to it, a "how to" versus an exposé, so it's gotta be lessons in rhetoric usage. Would be interesting if you were using examples from his exposé.

Agree with others that the SJW book needs to be in dead-tree form - most definitely something that can be passed out to others. Also second Nate's points - vitally important to stress NO apologizing or backing down. Plus Shimson's point about entryism. While you don't want to dumb it down to where it's unreadable, perhaps a section specifically aimed at MPAI women who think being feminine requires always being "nice" like a kindergarten teacher.

+1 This is a huge problem. Just as someone takes the field to attack the SJWs, the tone police who appear to be on our side ride in to undercut and de-legitimize anyone actually trying to make a difference. Once you understand the SJWs, you must understand why these moderates are not only not on our side, but preventing us from winning.

A chapter on why we should use SJW tactics against them would be useful. For example, some here were squeamish, at least initially, about calling for the firing of Irene Gallo. They argued that destroying someone's career is something the SJWs do, not us.

A clear explanation why this is a war, and therefore we should take no prisoners, might be helpful.

Preparing for battle before the SJW surprise backstab. (It's always a surprise backstab.)

Driving out SJWs, preferrably into gadarene swine.

Also, a related reference that might be useful even if the title is vulgar: philosopher Harry Frankfurt's essay On Bullshit. For example:

"The fact about him that the BSer hides, on the other hand, is that the truth-values of his statements are of no central interest to him. ... This does not mean that his speech is anarchically impulsive, but that the motive guiding and controlling it is unconcerned with how the things about which he speaks truly are."

And more along those lines.

Regardless of how uncomfortable SJW tactics feel to us, they picked the war and the methods, and how important it is to fight using their techniques. Don't be squeamish.

I have been trolling reddit using SJW tactics and its fun. I can understand the appeal. You always attack, always appeal to emotion, refer only to facts and reason if it helps your emotional attack. You always attack with rhetoric, the more overblown the better, and you continually reframe the debate (to the point of putting words in their mouth) so you never lose; if they almost always fall for the bait and switch. And don't forget to insult, belittle and ridicule as much as possible.
This is all so easy and until you've tried it you have no idea how little effect trying to argue honestly has on someone who doesn't care.


@ Vox: Will you be introducing any background on how the SJWs are the intellectual (heh) heirs of the long march through the institutions? If you've never read the True Believer by Eric Hoffer I suggest you take a look because SJWs existed fifty years ago.

I was going to suggest a section on black knighting but I would actually caution against it. I am doubtful black knighting won't work as well when everyone knows about it. You can guarantee SJWs (or their puppet masters) are going to read this book and be looking for ways to counter whatever you recommend.
That being said, people's ignorance of them is SJWs greatest weapon.

Good idea to publish "SJWS ALWAYS LIE" asap. There should be a huge market for it now with Gamergate in full swing. With some examples it may even convert some of the GG's who do not understand that SJW's are not limited to ethics in games journalism, it is actually a part of a larger culture war.

Anonymous civilServant July 15, 2015 11:30 AM  

(you said everyone ....)

Most people have no idea what is going on but are called upon to make decisions or to ratify the decisions of others at a moment's notice. During decision events "SJW"'s in resolute pursuit of their own goals take advantage of this situation by 1) casting aspersions and doubt in any volume necessary on opposition while 2) boldly claiming certainty and consensus in any volume necessary for their own views 3) this ground being prepped long before the encounter takes place (one reason why they place so much emphasis on disqualification) and 4) springing this encounter on the opposition without warning wherever possible. Reasonable people however admit to doubt and uncertainty and thus appear weak in such a context and thus the mob (for lack of a better term - the "mob" may consist of a single legislator) having insufficient knowledge itself chooses certainty over uncertainty. Thus the SJW's carry the decision event.

Your version of their tactic ("SJW's always lie") is a primitive attempt to counter this by using their own methods. But they seem more adept at it. In any case they refuse to accept anyone having more credibility than themselves and will readily choose to annihilate absolutlely everyone's credibility including their own to prevent an opponent's success.

How is this to be countered? If at all.

Blogger A_R July 15, 2015 11:36 AM

Blogger Elocutioner0226 July 15, 2015 11:40 AM  

What is the scope of the book? Understanding and protecting yourself from them or going after them?

A few things off the top of my head:

Alinsky's Rules For Radicals really is their playbook. Some of them have read it but most just pick it up through osmosis. It's the rule book for people who don't care about the truth and for whom the ends justify any means. I've been meaning to come up with a Rules for the Righteous that mirrors and counters their tactics.

It's been discussed here before - barbarians are to be treated as barbarians and honorable men as honorable. Honoring barbarians dishonors honorable men. Alinsky acolytes are to be treated with contempt, they have no honor. They don't believe in objective truths as that would impede their favorite means.

Arguing:
Arguing on the Internet is a spectator sport. Bring in Larry's checklist. How to spot and counter their arguments.

Publicly predict their next argument and cut them off at the knees. Expose them as predictable when they're just regurgitating somebody else's arguments.

Blogger Cataline Sergius July 15, 2015 11:41 AM  

Let's see John Carver at Return of Kings had decent list of SJW Logical Fallacies . It's not perfect but it's good place to start.



Strawman Argument: Usually taking the form of "So, what you are saying is..." To be followed by something I never said at all. Disqualification.

Ad hominem: Basically attacking your character. You are a racist, sexist homophobe. Their unholy trilogy. Again Disqualification.

Anecdotes presented as incontrovertible evidence: You would think this is where they are weakest. It actually involves or tries to involve facts rather than emotion. Yes you can probably disprove the anecdote in any number of ways. You can even get them to admit the story is false but it won't matter because they will go right back to telling that exact same story the moment your back is turned.

Heard on the latest Daily Shoah: Self Righteousness is addictive which is why SJW's constantly need to push the boundaries. The battle for gay marriage has been won, so they must find a new cause or go without the little dopamine rush they get by being morally superior to everyone else.

Also mentioned: the SJW concern for blacks/POC is akin to the concern of a pet hoarder for her cats. She doesn't notice that the 100 kitties in her basement are drowing in their own filth, miserable and diseased. She believes she is helping kitty 101 by plucking it off the streets and the goodfeelz overpower her sense of smell/reason.

To echo Anon123, a chapter on social media, including both offensive and defensive pointers, such as:

a) Knowing when to take a stand
b) How to deflect or defuse an online SJW attack
c) How to counterattack an online SJW attack
d) How to initiate an online attack
e) The most effective uses of online tools (Facebook, Twitter, blogs, comments)
f) How to make sure your social media efforts support your strategy and not your emotions
g) When and how to use humor to disarm and/or destroy SJW attacks

Social media is a shallow yet broad battlefield. It'll get a lot of attention (and may be the most in-depth some people go), but it seems to me to be essentially a staging ground. Still, those are important.

3. Defense. How to protect otherwise intimidated friends, allies, and supporters in order to enable their contribution, as well as protect active operatives from SJW tactics.

4. Intelligence break-down of SJW why, who, what, where, how as individuals, groups, networks, coalitions, etc..

1. Like others here, I can see buying 4 or 5 copies and sending them around, as gifts or otherwise.

2. Very important that "SJW" be in the title, for the reasons Vox said above.

3. Very important to explain entryism, its dangers, how to recognize it, how to fight it, etc. Full chapter on entryism, at the minimum.

4. There should be more than 3 rules. Each of the 3 existing Rules of SJW's deals with a characteristic that is "in the very nature of being an SJW." I see "SJW's never stop" as being an additional rule; it is in their very nature, and has been commented upon extensively by many observers, including Rush Limbaugh to his 26 million+ listeners.

5. An entire chapter on the poisonous danger of "moderates" is imperative.

6. The relationship between fighting SJW's and 4GW, and how the former makes the latter imperative.

7. "That's a revenue problem." So? Gather staff who will volunteer or work for peanuts until revenue ramps up (SJW movements historically have had legions of unpaid activists; so can we). Castalia House is tiny now, but it may well turn out to be an important, historic beachhead. The Normandy invasion was still "small" on the afternoon of June 6, 1944.

8. The inclusion of real-world examples and victims of both attempted and successful SJW villainy will serve to gather people to our side and shame the SJW's (Tim Hunt, Brendan Eich, Phil Robertson, Matt Taylor, bakers, flower arrangers, photographersk, Rush Limbaugh, et al.)

9. Important: Identify and explain entities and institutions currently under control of and used by SJW's, including as divergent as Twitter, Macy's, NBC, Univision, Wikipedia, Facebook, the U.S. Supreme Court, et al. This will serve to publicly identify them, shame them, and rally support in opposition to them.

10. I concur with the importance of "Never apologize," and why it is necessary. (It is closely related to proposed Rule #4, "SJW's never stop.")

A major chapter toward the end on how our viciousness must match and exceed their Alinskyite viciousness (and how "moderates" who shrink from this must be expunged).

Prime example: Attack SJW's based upon their looks and body shape (something I shrank from in the past, but now understand and embrace as necessary and effective). Think about the vile, nasty, vicious things that were written and said in the mainstream media about Sarah Palin, Linda Tripp, Katherine Harris, Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers, Kathleen Willey, and the many other women who the SJW left has smeared and tried to publicly destroy (I'm thinking particularly of television assholes such as David Letterman and Bill Maher).

Ie how to turn his name into a meme of religious bigotry and anti free speech; how to pressure corporations that do business with the state of Oregon, getting the message out to avoid tourism in Oregon, not supporting companies that sell products from Oregon (no I didn't say boycott; just choosing to spend money with companies that don't tacitly support what's going in Oregon)

3. NEVER let them forget. Refer to the same facts endlessly and their stupidity and dishonesty whenever you meet them again.
4. Shoot concern trolls first. Enemies in your own trench are to be used as sandbags.

SJW book needs a picture of Arthur Chu. Establish context. I've said it before and I'll say it again.

All of their clout... ALL OF IT, in all caps. It comes from sympathy for the ugly underdog. They are hopelessly addicted to the power they get from appeasement tactics when they shove the ugly in society's face. Pity is the one and only form of leverage they have ever had, and reliance upon it has shaped the entire SJW generation. Alter the perception of their ugliness as repulsive and contemptible rather than pitiful, and the entire movement evaporates like so much smoke.

Nothing does that faster than Arthur Chu's face.

Concur. Be sure to include the observation that when the SJW's are successful in destroying someone, we are treated to days or weeks or public high-fiving, celebrations, and warnings to others not to get "out of line" or the same thing will happen to them.

Yet when an SJW mob is defeated, there's no further mention of it. The SJW's simply shut up, and their corporate enablers quietly reverse themselves. One example is Phil Robertson and his family beating the homosexual SJW mob (and its network enabler). Rush Limbaugh beating the Sandra Fluke SJW mob is another (Carbonite was just about destroyed as millions of people cancelled their service for stabbing Rush in the back; it's now reduced to advertising on NPR. If you use Cartonite, by the way, cancel it now and go to another online backup service).

SJWs Always Lie sounds like a great book. I will buy it.

I'm not sure it's worthy of inclusion in the book, but it's sad to see a normal person become a SJW and transform into a hideous creature, much like Smeagol degenerated into Gollum. That's what SJW-ism is - a grotesque downfall where the worldview becomes as addictive as meth or the ring to bind them all.

It is also important to not let up when SJWs cry, "Uncle!" These are not honorable people, and they will leap upon you as soon as your back is turned. Non-SJWs have compassion and honor that SJWs lack, so the non-SJW must never believe that SJWs will respect fair play.

Anonymous Centrist Moderate July 15, 2015 1:55 PM  

A brief intro of my background, then a few requests for the book:

I'm a pro-gamergate moderate. Mostly I comment/read on reddit. Started at /r/kotatuinaction, moved on to /r/againstgamergate (a debate sub) and peek in occasionally at what the SJWs at /r/gamerghazi are scheming about.

I'm moderate, tactically speaking & I tend to vote left (largely an enthropic vestige of my upbringing). But I despise SJWs & their tactics. Delta, SMP-wise. Semi-redpilled.

Requests:

(i) An analysis of the argument-quirks of an SJW when their core beliefs/axioms regarding concepts such as "privilege", "opression", "sexism", "racism" are challenged. e.g. "I'm a white male whose parents were drug-addicts so stop talking to me about my white male privilege" -> "Just think about how much worse it'd be if you were also a black lesbian in a wheelchair". I think the genius of feminism is that its concepts are understandable, applicable, and motivating to quite a wide range of intellects... the smarter you are the deeper the available bullshit rationalisations... So you have reasonably intelligent people completely unable to respond to such challenges as "If men are so privileged then would prefer to be reincarnated as a male or female black person".

(ii) An analysis that unites the psychological and the conceptual RE the type of people who swallow the SJW concept-paradigm.

(iii) Something addressed to psychologically delta centrists who are genuinely outraged at the viciousness of SJW attacks on people like themselves. IMO a large part of GG's staying power is that it is an internecine conflict... And that it wins and grows simply by shining a light on SJW behaviour. So, Ilk who are implacably opposed to anyone to the left of Anne Coulter are not your only audience. Also, I don't enjoy the idea of being a Useful Idiot for the far-right/neo-reactionary movement... so something for leftists/centrists interested in rooting out SJWs in their own sphere.


Since people are talking about "anti-SJW" tactics and strategies, allow me to reccommend /r/againstgamergate as a venue in which to get some actual experience. We could use some of you fuckers there. A cogent response is often beyond me (as this post attests to, I'm sure). Just follow the side-bar rules & the mods will tend to let most stuff slide.

I'll add, draw from a diversity of examples for the case studies.

There ought to be common elements highlighted in the thread, but at the same time, there ought to be particular examples that various readers can identify with for their particular situations, eg, student on campus, local/state/federal politics, etc..

The examples don't need to be perfect success stories, either. That's not realistic. Instead, review what worked, what didn't work, what could have been done better, what could have been done better beforehand and, just as importantly but usually overlooked, what should have been done following the success.

Usually, counter-SJW actions are reactions only or limited to a modest goal rather than conceived as a cohesive affirmative movement. Therefore, the broader effect is limited.

When a counter-SJW action succeeds, its success is not normally followed up as a building block. Therefore, when the SJW cuts bait, the counter-SJW action stops there. As you say, "there's no further mention of it". In other words, the isolated setback to SJWs is contained while the SJWs simply move on and press forward.

In addition to ground tactics, it's important to lay out a practical framework and conceptual approach so that counter-SWJ successes are re-invested as building blocks for a cohesive affirmative movement rather than isolated and contained.

The final word would be with Vox, of course.
As for Markku's load. Perhaps among the Ilk are folk computer literate that Markku could offer some training for; a handbook, perhaps, for those more routine things he does.

Seems to me that SJW-ism is the strategic mechanism by which Cultural Marxism gets implemented. Maybe the broader subject of CM is worthy of discussion in the book.

Anonymous Joe July 15, 2015 3:52 PM  

Version of the case study suggestion, though this is less directly a book suggestion than a training suggestion:

Take famous, well-documented SJW cases like the recent Sulkowicz/Columbia/Nungesser episode.

Conduct a military-style critical review of the episodes from all angles like West Point faculty teach cadets to actively learn from historic battles. Study the main parties themselves, campus SJWs like Sulkwicz's faculty advisor and student orgs, university admins, DoE, the legal case, campus media and mainstream media, etc.. Turn what you learn into a 'battle simulation'. Learn all the angles by playing all the sides.

Apply.

If you're not afraid of contract work you could send your resume to several contract labor companies. All the ones I know about deal with engineering related work. So drafters, designers, techicians, engineers (PE or not).
A lot of it is oil related.

Nesco Resource
Amec Foster Wheeler
Worley Parsons
Fluor

to name just a few

These companies have offices in many places. Give a resume to a few recruiters and you'll have a job within a week.

Many of these jobs can easily be turned into direct hire work in one of a couple ways.

Myself, I worked through Nesco for ten years before being hired directly by the oil company I was doing work for. Same job, fifteen years now.

I know several folks that work for Worley. They don't have any complaints that I've heard.

Really push the meme aspect. Have a glossary at the end. Re-use or coin phrases that resonate. Two people who have read the book will be able to witness something, look at each other, and have the same phrase evoked: Point and Shriek, SJW, Concern Troll, Blue-haired Twink.

It helps even if only member of a team will have read the book, since they can identify something, name it, and communicate succinctly to others what they see. Others, being uneasy about something, but just being surrounded by it always, will react with, "So there's a word for it!" (Like the first time I heard "schadenfreude.")

Aim it at least in part at management (anybody that hires and fires). They have to deal with HR (rife with SJWs), they can set rules, they know people, and they can make a difference, but they are immersed in this SJW crap. Just recognizing it and giving them a vocabulary for it helps them find allies, and allows them a framework to devise their own tactics.

Anonymous Scintan July 15, 2015 4:45 PM  

I've seen a lot of areas covered, but these may have been missed.


1.) The intelligence of actions without words/explanations
2.) The power of "No"
3.) Learning the difference between moderates and appeasers
4.) Immediate rebuttal and counter a/k/a black knight actions to undercut the initial SJW assault
5.) Pointing out The near-identical-situation hypocrisy argument (i.e. opposes cigarettes, defends pot)

People have mentioned the slippery slope argument, which also encompasses the general past history of the SJWs, but I thought I'd mention that one again, in case it was missed.

I second that one. A commenter (I forget who) recently suggested that protecting their original* lie -- that everyone is the same -- makes lying mandatory. It was an interesting point, but I'm not sure it explains why they always lie, since they lie even when they seemingly don't have to. Anyway, worth exploring.

Not afraid of, as such, no. The problem is that we don't want to move for a contract position. And none of those companies seem to have any jobs within commuting distance (and I was driving two hours each way for the job I just got laid off from, so commuting distance is anything within 80 miles) of where we live.

Blogger Eraser July 15, 2015 5:55 PM  

If the book is intended for a wider audience than just the converts (and I think it should be), it needs a good explanation of why the reader should care about SJWs. Many common people simply don't see them as a threat, and I see this when discussing with family members, mostly because the propaganda that portrays SJWs as nice people just fighting for their rights has been so effective. Like how gay marriage is about "love", ignoring the frontal assault on religion. Or how environmentalism is about poor idealistic scientists against rich evil corporations, ignoring the fact that most political entities in the world benefit from it because it is an excuse to increase their power. A lot of people believe it.

I wouldn't know the best way to break this propaganda spell. Maybe show the connections. Show that it's an organized movement that pursues its objectives ruthlessly, and that feminists, gay activists, environmentalists, animal rights activists, etc. are all part of this movement and play by the same rules. For example, I'd be hard pressed to find a quote, but supposedly feminist books from the 70's mentioned back then that one of the objectives of feminism is the destruction of traditional family.

I second the request for a paper version. I'd buy a couple of copies to give to friends.

I put this together for non-vaxers defending themselves against the vaccine fanatics. But much of it applies to libertarians/conservatives.

The first thing to understand is that those you are arguing against are pathological liars/psychopaths (vaccine fanatics). But the people you are arguing for (ie spectators to the argument) are brainwashed. These are not bad people but they have no interest in backing a minority that comes across as extremely timid.

Vaccine fanatic: "Dr Google!"

If someone says this ask them why it is perfectly acceptable to use the internet for all kinds of information - some simple, some complex, and many many issues of great substance but for some reason medical information gets all jumbled the moment it is uploaded onto a computer. People even do degrees on the internet - presumably they aren't all illegitimate.

VF: “You aren’t an expert in immunology. How could you possibly know they are useless?”

Responses: “You aren’t an expert in homeopathy*. How do you know it is useless?”

*You can exchange homeopathy with any practice or belief that your opponent doesn’t agree with (astrology, naturopathy, faith healing, eugenics etc). It is irrelevant whether you agree with it or not.

Another good response (which can be provided along with or instead of): “Doctors don’t take any responsibility for damage done from the vaccines nor if they fail to provide immunity. Nor do pharma companies, health bureaucrats, politicians etc. What kind of a fool would blindly trust those who are “all care and no responsibility?”

Once you have shown the invalidity of their argument then you are welcome to say “oh and by the way, here are a bunch of immunologists who are opposed to vaccines”. But you can’t say that by itself because it simply reinforces the notion in your opponent’s mind that the opinions of immunologists are critical.

This works for many of their arguments. Appeals to popularity (you can mention religions), appeals to the longevity of vaccination “science” (again you can mention religion/astrology). Appeals to peer-review (why can't astrologers and homeopaths peer-review each other's work?). Appeals to great big piles of literature.

This forces them to explain why immunology is somehow fundamentally more “sciency” than all those other beliefs. They will be defending themselves. And that is where you want them to be.

Now, if you want to go into detail as to why it is acceptable to accept the authority of some people (eg engineers) over others then this is an explanation:

“Engineers, IT workers, mechanics etc can often directly observe whether their intervention is useful. This is because they know the counterfactual. Immunologists cannot make any direct observations as to the efficacy of their intervention. They rely on statistics compiled by somebody else. Anybody who understands statistics is just as capable of drawing conclusions as the immunologists themselves are.”

Anonymous rtp July 15, 2015 6:55 PM  

Cont. “Are you an anti-vaxer?”

Good response: “I didn't come to my views to start a fight with anybody and I am not the one calling for a witch-hunt of those who disagree with me on this issue, but I can't ignore the fact that all the valid data shows they are useless and dangerous*”.

You can then follow this up with: “Are you suggesting that starting with a pre-determined outcome that vaccines are a great idea regardless of any evidence to the contrary is a scientific approach?”

You can of course modify this according to your own specific beliefs eg “...shows they are not as effective and safe as they are made out to be.”

Do not say “No I am not an anti-vaxer”. Even if you yourself think some vaccines are a good idea in some circumstances that is a very bad response. By saying that you are not an anti-vaxer you are effectively legitimizing their approach and by extension dismissing all people who don’t support vaccines in some ways. Never sell allies down the river in the hope of appeasing people. It is ok to be more moderate – we don’t all have to agree – but it is very dangerous to delegitimize the views of those who are your allies because they are more extreme. Even if you are successful in winning a reprieve it will only be temporary. And the next time you are attacked you won’t have as many allies to support you.

It is also a very bad idea to tell people: “I am pro-choice”. That is not to say that being pro-choice is a bad position, but you should just never characterise our stance in such a manner. Remember that in the minds of the brainwashed (the psychopaths know better of course) we only choose not to vaccinate on a whim – for no reason other than to be different. Saying you are “pro-choice” simply reinforces their belief that we are not fulfilling our supposed obligations to everybody else and actually encourages them to ignore what we say. In addition, it encourages psychopaths to peruse everything you have ever written finding something that can easily be construed as “anti-vaccine” and use that to demonstrate your inconsistency (to the brainwashed).
In other words, while there is nothing wrong with *being* pro-choice on this issue, if you characterise your position in such a manner then you are promoting the perception that we are either flaky and weak or shifty. Don’t do this.

I think this would actually be detrimental to the thrust of the book, but I would like more advice for those of us not suited temperamentally to being on the front line against SJWs. I know intellectually they're wrong but I don't have the staying power for long arguments against people because I don't have a good handle on my own emotions. And I know not to pick at my own side, but I don't know what role I can have.

Do I need to toughen up (and if so, how), or is there room in the metaphorical army for somebody doing the equivalent of making sammiches in the kitchen??


From your writing style, I'm assuming you're a woman. I'm a career military wife, so I have some experience in this area, and I will give you my best advice.

First of all, I have to tell you that few years into my husband’s career, I read a short article about Martha Washington and decided she was my role model. The thing that decided me was reading George Washington’s own words, which credited her and the other ladies with keeping his troops from deserting at Valley Forge. Valley Forge was a hellhole, and I was astonished at the very idea that ladies were instrumental in keeping one, let alone many rough and ready men from deserting General George Washington. I asked myself, How did Martha Washington DO that?

I’ve thought and thought about this, and the answer, I’ve come to realize, is that true ladies are extremely, supremely good at message boosting and morale uplift. Men will do the crappiest things—and I mean terrible, crappy things—when a lady asks in her most ladylike, encouraging way. It really, truly surprised me. But, somehow Martha Washington knew how to do this.

Message boosting can come down to the simple fact of the presence of a lady. On a message board or a real life conversation, a simple “You know, Beau is right—that is a good thing. Thanks Beau,” can do wonders. It affirms the man doing the fighting, and eggs him on in a moral and morale way.

I don’t comment here very much, but when I do, I try to look for ways to subtly and morally encourage the men who are doing good comments.

I encourage you, Cee to look for ways you can do things like this that fit your own style. Yes, you know—What would Martha do?

2. Present the facts while she's still scratching her head.
3. Out her 'story' as an urban legend.
4. Sprinkle with more facts.
5. Don't accuse her of lying at any point the conversation, let her own words speak for themselves.

Obviously 'facts' are made up and #5 is changed to DISQUALIFY and PROJECT.

Right now I am re-reading Tom Brown at Oxford by Thomas Hughes. It is the sequel to Tom Brown's Schooldays, which was the very first English boarding school novel, written in the 1850s.

I recommend these two books to women of discernment who want to better understand the ways of ladies. Particularly Christian ladies. It's true that the main character is a man, but if you read carefully, you see the fingerprints of his lady mother who shaped him.

The ladies themselves are onstage at times, but you can almost see them better through the thoughts and behavior of their sons, brothers and sweethearts.

The biggest lie they ever sold us was the concept that diversity should be celebrated.

It destroys our ability to communicate with each other. It undermines our natural empathy and our desire to protect and help our tribe. It silences individuals because they "can't" possibility understand.

That is the biggest line of horse manure the devil ever sold.

I have a severe hearing impairment due to a childhood illness. I've spent my life using hearing aids, lip-reading and more recently a cochlear implant to live a perfectly normal life. Am I a special snowflake? Nope. Every single one of you can relate to me. Ever had a cold in your ear? Ever left a loud place with ringing in your ear? Heck, have you ever missed the punchline of your friend's joke? Then on some level, no matter how minor, you get it.

And you know what, I've been annoyed and inconvenienced by other people too so I understand that sometimes people aren't willing to repeat the punchline of the joke and it isn't a capital crime.

But SJWs distorted the idea of empathy and somehow have convinced a large number of people that unless you have the exact same experience as someone else you can't criticize them and in some case you aren't even allowed to have an opinion. And the "special" people get to be little princes and princesses because no one can correct their terrible behavior.

There's a lot of good suggestions here. The only thing I would add to the list is how when the SJW suggests you "get informed" it really means "swallow this lie." I find more and more that when SJWs say this, it means two things: 1) They think they're smarter than you, and 2) just by saying this they expect you to roll over and agree with them. In some cases they'll give you a crappy source of propaganda--er, information. In very, very rare cases they'll give you a decent source of information.

To the contrary, in response to a textbook SJW 'ethnic cleansing' campaign in the heart of SJW territory, the Columbia vets applied exactly what VD is advocating for, for the reasons that VD is advocating it.

Keep in mind, they were at a distinct disadvantage. But in their favor, a number of them were recent war veterans - including the group's president - with personal experience improvising counter-insurgency tactics in Afghanistan and Iraq at a time when the US military lacked an adequate counter-insurgency doctrine.

Rather than reject distasteful solutions out of hand, which would have meant accepting a harmful status quo, they assessed the situation and improvised a realistic solution under the conditions. Their success was groundbreaking and necessary for opening the way to the group's subsequent progress. Follow-on effects included the return of ROTC to Columbia, which was also spearheaded by Columbia vets and served another defeat to campus SJWs.

As I understand it, that kind of pragmatic approach, applied with real results that can be built on, is what VD wants.

In any case, however imperfect and perhaps distasteful, they provided a real-world example where SJWs were countered, in the heart of SJW territory no less, for case study.

Certainly, other kinds of real-world success stories, perhaps more to your preference, should be gathered and exemplified to broaden the repertoire in a counter-SJW instruction manual.

Great news Vox! I look forward to getting the book. As far as what I would like to see, just more gems like this:

"The most important thing to take away from it is to understand the complete impossibility of compromise or even discourse with them. They do not engage in rational debate because they are not rational and they do not engage in honest discourse because they do not believe in objective truth. They can only be a) ignored, or b) destroyed. Since we're not permitted to hunt them down like the worthless parasites they are yet (give it another 20 years), the current solution is implacable opposition, rhetorical dismissal, and a complete rejection of their wheedling attempts at entryism.

Every apology or attempt to find common ground will be viewed as a display of weakness and attacked. This is why it is important to ignore the well-meaning moderates, who simply do not understand with what they are dealing and will unwisely attempt to give the SJWs the very entry points they are seeking. Don't argue with the moderates, just let them speak their piece, nod and smile, and completely ignore their self-defeating advice.

They inevitably attempt to sell their irrationality beneath a mask of seeming reason and common sense. Because they are intrinsically parasitical, they need to obtain acquiescence, if not full mental buy-in, from people in the organizations they are invading. They seek submission, eventually, but they will settle for tolerance. The pattern is clear: Step one: tolerance. Step two: compliance. Step Three: submission.

Therefore, the correct answer is always no. "Wouldn't it only make sense if...." No. "Can't we just...." No. "Wouldn't it be fair to...." No. "You have to admit...." No. "If you would just apologize..." No.

"No" strips the mask of sanity from their faces and reveals the angry, shrieking madness underneath. Never forget, they cannot win without your compliance. So do not, under ANY circumstances, comply."

Because harmful "moderates" are rarely called on it, and because that kind of behavior is rather cowardly and thus easy to slip into without thinking about it, many men have slipped into bad habits, at least in some contexts. A look in the mirror, with a useful checklist, may reveal that you yourself may sometimes be "that guy," and help you to stop being that guy.

When you're doing wrong, the challenge is always to do better. That is often hard. But to close your mouth, or take your hands away from the keyboard, is generally easy. So the usefulness of the early chapter on not being an SJW enabler is that it will help people who are not up to big and quick improvements in their tactics (which is a lot of people) to immediately improve the average results of conflicts they are involved in, just by refraining from their old counterproductive moves.

Think of the most counterproductive things you, an anti-sjw warrior, see the clueless doing, getting in your way in fights. (Make a note, each time someone "neutral" or not obviously hostile gives you a very unhelpful intervention while you are fighting, and the list will soon grow so long you have to prioritize it.) Take a sympathetic view of how people could come to make such errors. (Not that everyone deserves such sympathy, but in this chapter you are only addressing those who do, that is those who would stop doing that if they realized the harm it does.) Describe the errors in neutral language, and try to make them so clear that the rhetorically can easily find them in their own conduct with the aid of your list and a little examination. Suggest your readers train to do better by doing through discussions again, mentally, not adding their unhelpful interventions.

I thought of the idea for this chapter when I was tempted to "tone police" another commenter and offer him advice on tactics. Though I would have tried to make it sound smarter, the spirit behind my words would be been: "hush; you're embarrassing me. We're really on the same side; don't be so crude." That's the kind of mistake you should be aware that you're going to make before you make it, and not make.

In any situation where social justice warriors are active and others are opposing them, if all those who are in this context not part of the anti-social justice warrior activist front will just refrain from chanting "be nice now!" at the non-social justice warrior side, it would be a wonderful improvement.

Another typical mistake was discussed in a recent thread; that is countering an impending social justice warrior takeover ineptly by insisting on neutral, non-ideological standards for inclusion in a group.

It's a natural error, and the perfectly innocent can make it. Social justice warriors want to restrict the power positions in an organization or a group (or all positions) to their own kind. (Or to their programmers, who taught "studies" courses rather than having taken or dropped out of them, and to approved "minorities" who are on the side of the social justice warriors out of self-interest.) So the right way to counter that is to push for ideology-free open admission, and to shout down those who, like the social justice warriors, want to favor their own kind. Right?

Not right! That just opens the way for social justice warrior entryism, after which all the open gates are closed.

So those fighting social justice warrior entryism will do better if those who in destructive innocence call for a clear path to the top for everyone would just fall silent and let the fighters fight.

I think people are reluctant to do that because they are afraid that if they are silent they'll be victimized. After all, that's what the social justice warriors always say will happen: if you don't fight for "tolerance" (that is, help them take over and impose tyranny) your turn will come! But in reality, that's not how it works.

Describe the errors in neutral language, and try to make them so clear that the rhetorically clueless can easily find them in their own conduct with the aid of your list and a little examination.

The reason to define counterproductive moves in neutral language is that people have difficulty in seeing that things described in negative, hostile language could apply to them. Thus, that's not helpful in a chapter where the idea is to help people see their usual social justice warrior-enabling behavior and stop doing it.

Negative and hostile language is appropriate in other contexts, for example in discussing people who intractably disregard reproofs of social justice warrior-enabling behavior, and those who keep it up because they are really truckling for social justice warrior favor and are not even (immorally) "neutral" as they claim.
