“The reason to kill tank-mages and ICS is that a single, dominant strategy actually takes away choice from a game because all other options are provably sub-optimal. The sweet spot for game design is when a specific decision is right in some circumstances but not in others, with a wide grey area between the two extremes. Games lose their dynamic quality once a strategy emerges that dominates under all conditions.”
“Someone took a video I posted on here and uploaded it to YouTube, I guess trying to get me fired. In it I talk about how women shouldn’t have jobs.
So I emailed a woman about renting her basement and she got back that she had watched my YouTube video… and wanted me to come still.
I just talked to her, she said she likes me and could tell from my video that I’m very philosophical and smart!
She is Eastern European so probably more traditional and she teaches philosophy at some adult school.
But HAHAHA SUCKER THANKS FOR DOXXING ME YOU PROBABLY JUST GOT ME A HUGE APARTMENT WITH EVERYTHING INCLUDED AND A FUXKING FIREPLACE AHAHAHA”
“Pakman brings up how there are no race genes, and this is a really pubby talking point.
The way it actually works is with variation at gene locations. “Allele” refers to the variant loci, and all humans have the same gene location. It’s just that at each location, you have different variance of a gene. And populations differ in allele frequencies, or, gene variant frequencies, at these locations. But they all have the same locations. All the genes do the same things, just differently depending on this or that S&P being different.
For some perspective, we can compare the male-female genetic differences to the race genetic differences.
You can treat male-female genetic differences as just an allele frequency difference. It’s just a difference of 100% at a very small number of locations. While the allele frequency differences between the races aren’t typological like the gender differences, i.e. you don’t have “race genes”, they’re spread out over many more genes.
If we assume that every single gene on the Y chromosome differs from the analog genes it deactivates on the X chromosome, the FST distance between male and females would be 0.021.
Which is just slightly more than 1/8 of the difference between Europeans and Africans in terms of magnitude (0.166).
So you have gender genes, but you don’t have race genes… but so what? The total magnitude of the allele frequency differences between the races completely dwarfs gender differences.”
“Rising IQ scores over time is about as meaningful as rising heights over time. We know that IQ is about 80% heritable within the US, and height is also about 80% heritable in the US and in Western countries. Heights are greater they were in the past, therefore what?
Therefore the height gap between men and women is totally down to environment? Because women today are taller than men were in 2000BC?
It’s the same form of argument you get from the Rising IQs.”
“An allegory I like to use is cakes. A cake has its ingredients, but also the mixing and baking process. So is the cake a result of its ingredients or is it a result of baking and mixing process? That’s a stupid question. It’s both. You can’t disentangle the two as the cause of the characteristics of the cake.
But what you can do is compare two different cakes.
You can say these cakes have the same ingredients, but one was baked longer, that’s why it’s different. That’s why it’s harder or softer or whatever trait you’re measuring. Or you can say these cakes were baked identically, but they have different ingredients, that’s why they’re different in these ways.
Similarly, when comparing either two individual cows or two groups of cows, you can, in principle, infer if the differences between them are a result of environmental differences, genetic differences, or most of the time, a mixture of both.
But it doesn’t make any sense to say “the weight of the cow is 50% genetic 50% environmental.”
So when Pakman talks about IQ tied to genetics, like, no buddy, you need to sit down, you really, literally, don’t know what you’re talking about. That statement is not even wrong. It’s like saying the color of three is unicorn.”
“If I tell you Bob is a “murderer”, well you know what that is. Obviously you’re going to want to know evidence and who he killed, but I don’t have to define the charge in the first instance.

“Mass politics ascended toward its peak when firearms combined with industrialized logistics. We may not appreciate now how revolutionary it was to have an army of hundreds of thousands of trained soldiers in the field at once in the Napoleonic Wars for prolonged periods, millions by the mid 19th century, and tens of millions in the 20th century. Mass production, pasteurization, railroads, the telegraph made possible a condition of total war that was new to agrarian peoples.”
“Some suppose a coalition of single women, gays, and impoverished races holds the key to political power in the future because their helplessness makes them dependent and therefore fanatically loyal. Yet once reality inevitably returns, a furious trans-genderist in a dress can shriek at the top of his lungs all he likes only to be sent tumbling into the mud with a saber slash to the face from a smug, mounted noble wearing a powdered wig. A coalition of the weakest is by nature opportunistic and requires the support of the strong to hold power at all. At best, they are tools who are ultimately discarded the moment they cease to be sufficiently useful as a legitimizing priesthood. That moment always comes sooner than ascended undesirables think because a successful religion helps pacify the masses, save the ruler energy, and keeps the army inspired and loyal—a church of obnoxious political commisars inflames and sabotages things instead.“
“What happened is that Swedes escalated the definition of rape, so that looking at a woman sideways was rape.
Then they de-escalated the punishment for rape, so that it was similar to letting your dog poop on the pavement.
And then they imported a million or so brown Mohammedans.
And when anyone noticed that a million old style knife to the throat rapes of white women by brown Mohammedans were happening, old fashioned actual rape type rapes, the criminal noticer got severely punished, hate speech being treated far more severely than mere rape. And if police attempted to arrest the brown guy with the knife: “Racism! Islamophobia! Police Brutality” Cars would be set on fire, and police would ticket the scorched ruins of the car for being illegally parked.
So police decided it was a lot more urgent to ticket people walking their dogs, and rapes by brown men got left on the back burner.
Swedish males are a little bit unhappy about this but, after all “We are not your women”, so they are not all that disturbed.
And what is the reaction of Swedish women? It is “bring in more refugees! We are not your women!”
Female resistance to rape is a shit test. It is not that they don’t want to be raped, it is that they don’t want to be raped by insufficiently powerful males. I say again: Female resistance to rape is a shit test. It is not that they don’t want to be raped, it is that they don’t want to be raped by insufficiently powerful males.
There is no college rape crisis, because if there were, female enrollment would be much higher.
Also, there is no college rape crisis, because the Obama Department of education subjected colleges to extreme and extraordinary pressure to identify and punish heterosexual white male college student rapists, and the colleges subjected coeds to extreme and extraordinary pressure to say that they had been raped, and despite all this storm and drama, the poster boy white male college frat rapist that they managed to turn up was glass rapist Haven Monahan, indicating that the number of affluent white frat boy rapists, the rapists that Obama was twisting the arms of university admins to find, is indistinguishable from zero, that every single rape accusation made against such men is false, for if one of the accusations was plausibly true, he would be the poster boy instead of Haven Monahan. Such a ridiculously low rate of rape indicates that our college boys are disturbingly emasculated, hence the female rage directed against them, and conspicuously not directed at groups that have a very high rate of actual no kidding rape type rape.”
“Which way do you want to go on this? Do you want to try to rehabilitate the central demon because you care so much about a central European regime from 72 years ago, or do you want to do that which advances white nationalism?
Lets say that it’s all bullshit. Say the holocaust is a Soviet fairy tale, the general plan has no supporting documentation and is literally just nuremberg testimony, that I left out a ton of context re: Arab and Japanese allies against the British, that Hitler actually loved Britain and tried to end the war at many points.
Obviously these are just hypothetical things, the Holocaust DEFINITELY HAPPENED because it’s illegal in several countries and against youtube’s TOS to question it. That means IT’S TRUE and Google is a great company. And certainly the general plan WAS PROVEN at a trial where evil nazis weren’t allowed to sully justice by having the ability to question any documentation or testimony.
To understand my videos where I say things about Nazis, viewer, please, you have to be able to read the stitches on a fastball. And you just gotta know what’s real and what I’m saying because I have to – what happened vs.
*THINGS THAT DEFINITELY HAPPENED*.
I’ll just say this happened: Hitler was not a white nationalist, and the conflation of Hitler with normal thinking is what caused normal thinking to be pathologized and is causing us to lose our civilizations, and it was in fact white nationalists who defeated Hitler. Hitlers views on the slavs were also very offensive, whatever the reality of atrocities and the general plan, and have no place in a pan-European white nationalist movement. But most important of all, there’s so much more to be gained by pointing out the white nationalist views of those who fought against Nazis.
On the other hand, the holocaust and the general plan are THINGS THAT DEFINITELY HAPPENED and things I will continue to say DEFINITELY HAPPENED because denying it being against youtube’s TOS makes it true.
But what it really comes down to is – do you want to win or do you want to be pro-Hitler? You cannot do both.
“You’re correct in saying that modern White Nationalism has little to do with Hitler’s ideas, but that’s not the point. Hitler needs to be de-villified because Hitler-as-demon is their most powerful rhetorical weapon. You can’t let your enemies keep their most powerful weapon, you have to counter them somehow.
It’s not just a question of winning, it’s simply a matter of truth. If we let them lie about Hitler, we’re ceding ground to them and giving them permission to lie about other things as well.”
“It’s never going to work. Hitler and white nationalism are linked in the zeitgeist. It is far easier to convince someone that everything about WW2 is a lie than that Hitler was wrong on everything but one thing.
It’s just not how people are wired. They need something equally emotional to provide counterweight or they need to channel their emotions elsewhere.
You definitely can’t make them emotionally motivated in favor of ethnonationalism while at the same time they are emotionally demotivated by a luring conflation with Nazism in the public eye. You need to resolve this internal conflict for them and you are not.
No one can be passionately be for and against something, it’s just too mentally straining.
That’s how the general public works. It’s cute how you think lying about the Nazis will in any way help you, Faulk.”

Tons of Victorian, German, Medieval, Italian. European culture basically died in the mid 1900s and you can see it here.

Thus those that provide the capital have no power, those responsible for making payroll have no power, those that are responsible for closing deals with customers have no power, those responsible for delivering product to customers have no power, because all of them are criminals before the power of human resources and accounting, just as all fathers and husbands are guilty of domestic abuse.”

In order to manage complexity, you need walls, so that one man can make decisions without having his decisions fucked up by another man’s decisions. Hence, private property and local authority, the authority of the father, the authority the business owner, the authority of the CEO. And, not so long ago, the authority of the local aristocrat, who tended to be a high officer in the local militia, a major employer and landowner, and related by blood or marriage to most of the other high officers in the local militia.
Ideally all the consequences of a decision should be contained within those walls. Of course they never are, but if you try to manage all the externalities, things very quickly slide of control. Every attempt to manage the externalities has unexpected consequences, and attempts to deal with the unexpected consequences have additional unexpected consequences, because trying to control matters that have externalities connects everything to everything else, resulting in a tangle beyond human comprehension.”
