SJWS ALWAYS DOUBLE DOWN now in paperback

STAGE SIX: Expel the Infidels

The Node.js community has again turned against itself, this time over a failed vote to oust a controversial member of the project’s technical steering committee (TSC) over alleged code-of-conduct violations…. Vagg, who declined to be interviewed, offended members of the Node community through various online posts. A member of the TSC attempted to move the allegations out of public view, but they’re presently available through the Internet Archive. Essentially, among other things, Vagg argued there are downsides to codes of conduct, which seek to shut down harassment and super-sketchy behavior within technical conferences and projects.
—“Node.js forks again—this time it’s a war of words over anti-sex-pest codes of conduct”, The Register, 24 August 2017

While the nebulous code of conduct rules sometimes prove too nebulous to actual make any charges stick well enough to justify expulsion, the very Kafkaesque nature of the process is usually sufficient to demoralize the dissidents and push them into quitting. After all, how does one defend oneself against a code of conduct violation which is comprised of arguing that there are downsides to the code of conduct? Notice that the controversial member is not charged with either harassment or super-sketchy behavior at conferences, but merely with arguing against something that theoretically seeks to shut down such behaviors.

Of course, quitting is always a mistake, however one tries to justify it to oneself. Quitting is the very outcome for which the SJWs are hoping because it saves them the trouble of trying to concoct a plausible case for disemployment where none exists. As I advise in SJWs Always Lie, don’t go easily, and take as many of them with you as you can while making the rubble bounce on the way out. Remember, SJWs are cowards, and they have little stamina for extended periods of open conflict. They try to wear their opponents down through insinuation and social pressure, killing them with the death of a thousand cuts rather than via a fair trial followed by an execution.

This is a timely release indeed. The 208-page paperback edition of SJWs Always Double Down: Anticipating the Thought Police appeared on Amazon on literally the very evening that Twitter suspended its author indefinitely using a method very similar to the one explained in Chapter 5: The SJW Convergence Sequence. As TZ noted, "If they actually declared the violation, then it could be evaded in various ways. It has to remain abstract and arbitrary, so that badthink people can be banned while goodthink people get a pass for equal violations."

This silencing of the leading opposition voices is less important than instilling fear and submission on the part of the moderates, who are always looking for a means of rationalizing their acceptance of the status quo. As the subtitle indicates, I'm not at all surprised that Twitter targeted me and suspended my account even though I've been very good about not responding in kind to those who have been relentlessly attacking me in ways that obviously violate the Twitter rules. It was patently obvious that Twitter was playing a version of the Expel the Infidel game when I submitted dozens of reports about blatant violations of their policies directed at me, all of which were more egregious than any of the tweets that triggered my previous suspensions, and only those that rose to the level of serious libel were found to be in violation of their politices. That told me Twitter had no intention of playing fair; their only concern was preventing me from being able to pursue any external recourse they could not control.

So, what to do? What we're already doing, of course. Did I not promise that SJWADD would give the reader the ability to anticipate their actions? We're already constructing our own social media platform. It will take 12-18 months, but as I mentioned on a recent Darkstream, we are already building a range of social media capabilities, including Twitter-style functionality, into DONTPANIC. In the meantime, I expect the VFM on Twitter to carry on with the #DailyMemeWars, and I will continue to provide them with the ammunition to do so via email. Remember, you should not simply quit Twitter, just keep resisting the narrative in order to force them to show their hand and shut you down.

From the recent reviews:
  • Every CEO who doesn't want to see their company get infested and eventually decline should pick up a copy.
  • This exceeds the first. Unreservedly recommend. This may be Vox's best book so far. Both concise, and packed with very practical information presented in an easy and entertaining manner. Go Buy it.
  • A clearly written guide for looking at the why of SJWs and how to deal with them in your organization. The connection to socio-sexual hierarchy and the fresh look at Aristotle's ideas were brilliant examples of why this book is a standout in modern political philosophy.
  • There are two types of political commentary/philosophy books: those that complain about what's wrong and those exceedingly rare ones offering remedies to make right. This book, like its predecessor, SJWs Always Lie, is firmly in the latter camp.
  • This book is superb! I was prepared to be disappointed as how could any book live up to SJWs Always Lie? Yet this one did.

On a positive note, this event demonstrates the importance of people building their own platforms as opposed to being dependent on someone else's. I'm thinking of something said by Roosh; that parallel institutions need to be formed in these culture wars.

Out of helicopters.

So, is it time for my tiny blog to repost the materials from the war against SFWA?

Blogger Lovekraft November 10, 2017 6:11 AM  

18 months for a new twitter/gab?

Setting my clock.

In my experience dealing with the SJWs at work back when they thought they had the world in their hands, the thing that ensured I persevered was a clear conscience. Doing what I was paid to do so that anything the company did, it was beyond this scope. And, of course, a clear awareness of who I was dealing with.

Are these available anywhere for the Nook?

Out of helicopters? No problem, we’ve got buffalo jumps! The Dopplering REEEEeeeeaa are exquisite.

Buy from Amazon and convert. They are DRM-free.

Can we expect an interview with Stefan in the near future?

Blogger VD November 10, 2017 7:58 AM  

You'd have to ask him. That being said, Stefan and Cernovich News are the only general interviews I'm doing these days. If you have a podcast or whatever, I'm sorry, but I don't have the time these days.

Blogger tuberman November 10, 2017 10:27 AM  

Yes, and a book physically in hand is worth at least two on the computer screen.

Anonymous Mike Rock November 10, 2017 10:45 AM  

I got both Always Lie and Double down last night on Amazon. Hell, I might be the first to get Double Down in print! They took the order but say 'not in stock'.
Eagerly awaiting these books. Hard copy trumps some hand held gizzie any time for us old farts.

God bless.

The first interview with Stefan was the first I had heard of you. Now I own 4 of your paperbacks plus The Missionaries on Kindle.

Blogger LP9 November 10, 2017 12:56 PM  

More Epistles of Truth!

Out of stock already!

Yeah, I should do more of those....

Amazon always places a very small first order from Ingram. But they'll have more early next week, so just ignore that if you're going to order.

I suggest asking Scott Adams if you can use this comic in book three:

It looks like this entire sequence was inspired by your book, maybe you could play off that in the structure:

Kafkaka.
SJWsADD is the best book so far.
The parallel is with the cuckservatives and losertarians who wish to appease the barbarians with offerings of apologies and logic.
And the known evil of democracy, though more subtle in that they don't vote cash from the public trough as much as reputation or something similar. Note how it has to be "democratic", so they can pack the court, or the polis, so that they can conduct not a trial but a simple vote - after they are the majority (why Virginia...).
No, you need philosopher kings willing to execute subjects that insist on overthrowing the Natural Law, reason, etc.
While an example of democracy is two wolves and one sheep voting on lunch, 1000 sheep and one or a few wolves can vote to starve the wolves - or the sheep dogs.
