the woke, the deniers and the uneasy ones

When you spend a lot of time in those parts of the internet where the alt-righters hang out it’s easy to get the impression that victory is not only assured, but it’s just around the corner. When you’re focused on the fight to save western civilisation it’s easy to forget that most ordinary people don’t even know that civilisation is under threat.

You can divide people into several categories. The first category could I suppose be described by the terribly ugly but somewhat useful term “woke” - these are the people who not only know how bad things are, they know how and why things got to this pass and they know what needs to be done to avert disaster. Unfortunately this category amounts to a very small fraction of the population. Maybe one percent.

There’s a second category (we could call them the “deniers”) and it’s divided into sub-categories. These are the people who know how bad the problems are and they also know the hows and whys of the situation but although they know the truth they won’t admit it, not even to themselves. The first sub-category is composed of people who can’t admit the truth because it’s too upsetting to them. They want diversity to be a good thing and even though they know it’s been a disaster they still want to believe in it. They know that feminism has caused misery but they can’t accept that feminism is unworkable in its entirety.

The second sub-category is made up of people who know the truth but are too scared to admit it, to themselves or anyone else. Admitting the truth could tempt them into speaking the truth and that could cost them their jobs, their marriages, their children, their chances of ever getting another decent job. Their fears are by no means irrational.

These two categories might perhaps amount to five percent of the population, maybe slightly more, maybe even ten percent, but that’s only a guess. They’re a small but not entirely insignificant minority.

The third major category might encompass anywhere from a third to two-thirds of the population. They’re the “uneasy” ones. They know that something has gone horribly wrong with society but they don’t know how it happened or why.

The tiny minority of the “woke” is just too insignificant to make a real difference. Somehow we have to reach the people in those other categories. Unfortunately it’s easier said than done. Those who won’t accept the truth because of their fears really do have valid reasons for those fears. 

Those who won’t accept the truth because it would upset them too much present a difficult problem. People show remarkable stubbornness in clinging to beliefs that are untrue but emotionally satisfying. If those beliefs also involve major opportunities for virtue-signalling then the stubbornness becomes even more determined. It’s particularly difficult to reason with Christians who have embraced bleeding heart feelgood causes (in other words the majority of Christians). They just won’t let go of those goodfeelz. Women in general also cling tenaciously to emotionally gratifying beliefs. And so many men these days are so feminised and emasculated that they’re terrified of the very idea of considering forbidden thoughts.

Self-identified conservatives are an even bigger problem since most conservatives these days are in fact cuckservatives, or (even worse) neocons. Both are treacherous and cowardly, and thoroughly corrupt..

The uneasy ones, the ones who know society is going down the tubes but don’t know why, may be easier to reach. They’re starting to become vaguely suspicious of the media and they’re starting to suspect that maybe all the major political parties are equally bad. It’s no use trying to get them to accept the whole truth in one go. That’s scary for any body. But it might be possible to slowly and subtly undermine their faith in diversity (and many of them are already not entirely thrilled about it), and feminism, and in the goodwill and honesty of the homosexual lobby. The idea is to just chip away at these beliefs.

Of course the big problem is that the globalist liberals have the megaphone, they have not only the old media totally tied up but they have social media largely tied up as well. Reaching any of these people is not an easy matter. But somehow it has to be done.

  1. Of course, in Christian eschatology, there's a case for things getting progressively worse until the final day.

  2. >>When you spend a lot of time in those parts of the internet where the alt-righters hang out it’s easy to get the impression that victory is not only assured, but it’s just around the corner.

    This impression derives not from supposition that the conservatives began a major attack on the liberals, but from the fact that the whole economic system of the last 50 years, that made it possible for this ugly ultraliberal pseudoculture to rise and shine, is going down, and nobody knows how to stop it. Without this US-centered economy, the liberal paradigm cannot last long. It will go down; the only real questions are, how much harm will this outdated paradigm cause to the rest of the world, how many people will die before it all happens, and how many new empires the world will see. The US, which globalists used as their tool for decades, already acknowledged the fact that soon it's not gonna be the only superpower.

      That's true. The US is the key. The western Europeans are just as bad but it's the Americans who have the ability to impose their twisted values and depraved culture on the rest of the world. If the US economy collapses there is hope.

      Also if the US economy implodes then liberalism will lose much, if not most, of its fatal glamour.

      That's a cause for hope as well.

  3. Yes, we are all doomed. The intellectually aware few as well as the majority ignoranti, all are totally dependant upon an interconnected and interdependant world. That is not just economic but ideological.

    Plant your veggies and buy a pig. Sell everything else and buy a sword.
