Like monkeys analyzing Aristotle

The New York Times attempts to explain the NPC meme to NPCs:
It’s a long story, but the short version is that a group of young, extremely pro-Trump internet trolls have spent the past several years mocking anti-Trump people as whiny, easily triggered snowflakes who are primarily motivated by social acceptance rather than by logic and critical thinking.

Many of Mr. Trump’s supporters — including, as of last week, Kanye West — put their support for him in the language of freethinking rationality and paint the other side as being motivated by blind loyalty and identity politics. (Mr. West said of his pre-Trump-supporting days, “I was programmed to think from a victimized mentality.”)

The NPC meme fits neatly into this narrative and offers Mr. Trump’s online supporters an easy shorthand way to paint liberals as humorless prudes who say “Drumpf” because the HBO host John Oliver told them to, who march in protests and put on pink “pussyhats” because they’re the popular things to do, and whose views can’t withstand scrutiny.

(And then, when progressives object to a meme that portrays them as unthinking automatons, it becomes another piece of evidence: See? The left can’t take a joke.)
It wouldn't sting if it wasn't true. And the Left observably can't take a joke. That's why it attempts to deplatform and silence everyone who cracks wise at their expense.

It's all a bit meta at this point, as what the NYT is really doing here is programming the NPCs to point-and-shriek: "NPC meme racist!"

How things have changed. This meme should have taken until the other side of the new year before it got officially denounced, but it's so destructive that that it made it to the NYT in less than 3 weeks after going viral. We're now fully into "Media at the speed of Trump".

But, it's also important to understand this is an Attack Vector that's unbannable. The only way to prevent the utility of the meme is to ban accounts or any images attached to messages. Whether avatars or attachments. That's why they've responded so hard at the "official" level to it. No amount of Machine Learning can prevent it from working. Leftwing social media have officially been cracked.

The NPC Memetic Attack causes physical & psychological pain in NPCs. NPCs cannot withstand it, seeing as they have no defense for it. Further attempts to defend against it reinforce the damage, like quicksand. The only option is for them to flee. You'll see more and more of this. Either all comments sections have to be moderated beyond belief or removed.

Frankly, it's glorious. It's weaponized rhetoric to its nuclear potential.

Blogger Greg Thomas October 19, 2018 10:09 AM  

For those who want to know technically how to construct such a meme:

This is the application of NLP (neuro linguistic programming) reframing. Look for the book "Sleight of Mouth" by Robert Dilts. There are 16 classic ways to reframe something. Which is to say look at it from another angle - ie spin.

The NPC meme goes right to the psychological level of identity (root in computer terms!) and hits it with the shocking question "am I real?"

Then stuck a nice picture with it. Gray man with blank expression is brilliant. Not an identifiable race to distract attention from message payload. NPC acronym which target demographic understand. And viral spread the older people will learn what NPC means in this particular case.

So if a concept can be reframed, and that idea conveyed with only a few words plus a picture, then you have a super potent meme.

I'll let the cat out of the bag to celebrate the mighty NPC meme with a meme spell I've been saving up:

It's especially difficult to take a joke when you can't tell the difference between humor and ridicule.

That's the main problem with Leftists: they're so enamored with ridicule that they've totally forgotten what humor is. You can ridicule with humor but there's a point where such ridicule stops being humorous and starts becoming increasingly malignant. Leftists tend to start well past this point and then get all offended when someone points out the obvious:

"You know, that's not really that funny."

Not sure if they never learned how to take a joke or they simply forgot, but in either case, these idiots wouldn't know funny if it jumped up and bit them in their collective asses.

The roots of Punk rock have always been in a rebellion against the economic stagnation caused by Britain's leftist Labor Party (the same rebellion among the older people elected Thatcher), and in the U.S., against the stagflation under the Carter/Democratic Congress (which brought in Reagan in 1980, and soon after, a Republican Congress).

No. We have already seen what the leftists will do to an AI when it begins to learn from reality and interaction with humans; the leftists undo the AI's learning and reprogram it to only process information along programmed algorithms.

I posed the question here a few weeks ago: "What would a mature AI be like; how long would it take the AI to acquire a true understanding of reality once it had full access to the online world?"

Thought you'd find it interesting in light of your writeup to know my brain parsed that briefly as "I Hate Fags"

@1- Not long ago, before the New Left, the left used to be wary of youth. In the 50s they were expecting Eisenhower Youths raised in Authoritarian Personality households and schooled by advertising, Hollywood, and Victory Culture to stand in the way of progress. Then it went the other way.

Madison Ave. of course had consistently had its way with Youth Culture, its heyday with the Boomers.

Basically the same thing they do to humans.

"Madison Ave. of course had consistently had its way with Youth Culture, its heyday with the Boomers."

Which is amazing, when you consider that at that time, MAD magazine was absolutely skewering both mass media and advertising campaign.. Not just every issue, but almost every piece IN each issue. Not to mention that ad parodies.

Interesting thing I noted reviewing some issues from the mid-1950's -- they had so many parodies of ads, that ( before they stopped taking ads entirely) they actually labelled the genuine advertismeents as "real ad" above the advertising copy.

There's a very early cover... issue #21, which portrays an ad for a zany variety of novelty and surplus items, "genuine live crocodile, 75 cents; Big Bullwhip 10 cents, Amazing Wrist Radio $2.98, a number of rubber masks, including Stalin, Hitler, and the face which would eventually be named "Alfred E Neuman", from $1.00 to $3.98, Elephant Tower / Real Elephant $1.98/$3.98; Compressed Air Torpedo(*), 3000 Item catalog for $0.10 from John Smithson John & Co, Dept 98, Wow, Michigan" -- is a parody of the ad on the last page of the previous issue for a wide array of 3100 knick-knacks and novelty items ("Jokes / Tricks / Gadgets / Fun Makers / etc.") from Johnson Smith & Company, Dept 888, Detroit 7, Michigan.
That was the front cover of Issue #21, $0.10, "Look At These Things You Get. Wow! / 34 pages 4 colors / 4 stories / 2 advertisements / 1 letter page 2 staples"


(*) yes, that was actual state of the art torpedo technology up to WW1.
