A game designer gets it

The designer of Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story has some excellent advice that sounds rather familiar:
Widdowson then puts forth four tactics, “never apologize,” cease any support for “people that engage in this behavior (on all sides),” minimize “engagement with these people,” and speak “with your wallets,” and states that these tactics are “the only way to stop this stuff from happening”:

“– Never apologize to the mob, if enough people stop doing the corporate non-apology, or the “I’m sorry, I’m woke now”-apology then the mob loses it’s power and the “game” stops being exciting for the hangers-on. An apology is a vindication, a self-defeat, a statement saying you acknowledge you did something worth an apology. Don’t do it.

– Stop supporting the people that engage in this behavior (on all sides), and stop supporting the companies that employ them. Money talks, eventually…

– Minimize engagement with these people. Starve them of attention; make them feel like they are screaming into a void of exactly 0 people that care. Remember, these people subsist purely on outrage, anger, and discomfort. You don’t have to. So if you really need to engage with these people though, make sure you do it in a way that benefits you. We’ve connected with some great fans and new customers thanks to this.

– Speak with your wallets, if you see a large company bend the knee to the mob, stop giving them your money at all. You don’t need the next AAA  EA/Activision/whoever published game, but they certainly need your money. You guys have 100% of the power. Never, ever forget that you determine actual success regardless of what those in “power” redefine that word to mean.”
Minimizing engagement and voting with your wallet are the two most important points. The evil power of the Devil Mouse would be significantly reduced if idiot conservatives would simply stop going to Disneyland and buying tickets to Disney-produced movies. Hollywood would be significantly less able to influence minds all over the planet if the people it hates would stop paying for its increasingly horrendous products.

No wonder they harbor such contempt for the men and women of the West. Far too many of us not only materially support, but actually pride ourselves on, destroying our own interests and our own societies.

Excellent advice. I don't buy pop culture stuff anymore but I will sometimes give the money I might have spent on a AAA game to a reputable charity.

There are so many good forms of entertainment (classic books, games movies) that there's no need to make myself beholden to mediocrity and SJW cripplehood.

Arkhaven and Castalia are indeed beacons into the vast ocean of flotsam and jetsam that culture has become.

"Far too many of us not only materially support, but actually pride ourselves on, destroying our own interests and our own societies."

Sadly they have been taught in government run schools to do just that, home school or die guys.

Satan isn't scary if you ignore him. You should fear God because He has the final say on where you end up. Cucking or sucking the devil's dick is completely unnecessary behaviour. Disassociate with everyone who does it. If you turn off your television and cancel your Netflix subscription, it's very easy to forget about all the shit they do. Don't buy games from faggots and then you won't get mad when they inevitably force a gay alien lesbian couple into the game.

I lived through the whole cold war and never heard the term "Struggle Session".

But that's what apologizing to the mob is. Love the term.

Now when I see one of these victims recanting I think - "Ooh...a struggle session"

This links to the Conservative Outrage Machine that is a whole industry that is built to assist the left. Gavin, Crowder, Levin, etc., are simply there to show the left that people care.

If people stopped caring and simply turned to disdainful mocking it would serve their interests more.

Mocking > Outrage

It's remarkable how many right-leaning Christians (or churchians) still make Hymie-wood TV and movies a big part of how they spend their time, even when they know it's an unproductive, dopamine spiking, IQ-draining time suck at best, and a sewer pipe of evil at worst.

It's been more than 20 years since the last time I went to Devil-Mouse-World, and even then I didn't see the appeal. I mean really, paying $75 per capita to stand in line for an hour for 5 minutes of "It's a Small World," then paying more on top of that for crappy food and souvenirs? I certainly will not be taking my children there.

The "on all sides" parenthetic aside is something of a cuck move, though obviously the point itself is well taken.

uh, that comes from Mao's Cultural Revolution and was in common use from the mid-60s to the 80s. the hippies used it.

What if we figure out a way to make the ADL and SPLC archive "I apologize" as hate speech?

Blogger CarpeOro October 04, 2019 9:55 AM  

I watched a Chinese series on Netflix called "King's Avatar" set in the present day in an e-sports environment. After seeing so many Western series where the top two (or more) programmers, hackers, etc are women (or more realistic yet, hot "women of color"), it was like a breath of fresh air. There were women gamers, but they didn't make up even 10% of the characters and weren't in the top ten. I work on an all male, all white team in IT at a small company, but my experience in general after nearly three decades in IT is much closer to the Chinese take than anything you see in Western film these days.

Only three kinds of votes that matter.
Ones you cast with your wallet.
Ones you cast with your feet.
Ones you cast with bullets.

Notice that ballots are not included.

As such, it may be a virtue or a failing that we hold off on the third option until we have been robbed and cornered.

Sagely put. If conditions on the ground are consonant with popular will, then ballots are irrelevant. If conditions on the ground are not consonant with popular will, then ballots eventually turn into bullets.

"Far too many of us not only materially support, but actually pride ourselves on, destroying our own interests and our own societies." - Vox Day.
I'm almost done with reading John, the last of the 4 gospels, and I see a parallel that Jesus expressed time after time - His frustration with the dense mindset and lack of faith of His disciples and supporters.
It is extremely difficult for me to deal with the fact that most Conservatives and Churchians simply don't see what I see - and that's the long and the short of it!

“even then I didn't see the appeal”

With many, there is an appeal. The “Made in the USA” product tag was tried, and the masses of people continued to buy the cheaper products their budget could better afford. Temporarily afford. What was needed was the tariffs to raise prices so US products were not priced out, label or not. The parks, down attendance or not, are still jam packed. Devil Mouse is ruining the brand, which creates opportunity, but if there is no comparable alternative, quite a few will still go. They need somewhere else to go, better, where they may speak with their dollars, not only by silence, but by great resound. Laughing as they crumble civilization is not enough, you get stuck living in it. They tear down, you build and keep them out. Take over.

Society has the tendency to forget and overlook many events, which the SJWs use to their advantage. As time passes, they retreat back to more palatable arguments, masking the truth. The truth which is they are the embodiment of an anti-truth ideology that lusts for power at all costs.

So the public has to be constantly reminded what these people are responsible for.

Not only should we never apologize, but we should keep dossiers on all potential accusers or be ready to make one. As Roosh proved, when the fomenters of the rage mob surface...and they do like to be known when they virtue signal, replying with their own dirt or shining a spotlite on their cringeworthy posts, contradictions, and public admissions is like a cross to a vampire. Not only does it back them off but the others see and remember it.

@ 31 GEM:

re Joker, I was thinking earlier that the west has failed utterly in diving into the psychology behind jihad. An extensive source of creative content pushed aside due to political correctness. But we may be seeing the emergence of a major attack on the shielded caliphatist. On the surface, it's about a white male, but wouldn't the jihadi, a pathetic, despicable lunatic fit the bill better?

Blogger Joe Smith October 04, 2019 6:45 PM  

@33 Are Jihadis pathetic, despicable lunatics? Many of them just really believe what they say they believe. What I mean is: I don't think they're pathetic, in general. Despicable lunatics, perhaps, but not pathetic. They have what Westerners have lost: real belief in their foundations. Their foundations are bad and anti-Christian, but that's a different issue.

Blogger Jim the Curmudgeon October 04, 2019 11:08 PM  

I'm still gobsmacked that Christians of any stripe support Hollywood. Although I'm not Christian, I recall watching the 'Last Temptation of Christ" with a friend and his parents, one of whom happened to be a MINISTER in a liberal church. I recall thinking that the film was blasphemous; it was basically non-stop Jewish mockery of Christ for over an hour, showing him to be a spineless, ugly weakling. No reaction from the Minister whatsoever.

When the Jewish art gallery owners in Europe hold exhibitions in which paintings like 'Piss Christ' are shown, it's the Muslims who rise up and demand that the works be removed. The useless Christians do absolutely nothing. When you rely on members of a hostile religion to defend your own God against blasphemy, something is wrong.

Christians should have ditched Hollywood in the 60s, when the Catholics lost the battle against obscenity.

Blogger Monotonous Languor October 05, 2019 12:14 AM  

I recently saw an older movie 'Zulu' with Michael Caine, which depicts 20,000 Zulu warriors overrunning 1300 ill-prepared Brits and their hapless commander. At one point during the movie, the Zulus go through a prolonged chant before starting their attack. As they chant, the British soldiers counter with a song of their own. Battle psychology on display.

From which I conclude that we need tens of thousands of traditionalist nationalists in the streets, beating on their shields in unison shouting “Fight them!” over and over again, confronting the police, confronting antifa, confronting the state. And when the disingenuous press girl asks “Who is 'them'?”, the answer is “I'm not doing your homework for you, honey, go away and work that out for yourself.”
