Toward the end of yesterday’s Periscope, Vox Day goes on a fascinating tangent about the development of the Gamma male and the Social Justice Warrior. Replying to someone’s question, he explains how SJWs are the way they are because they are dealing with personal pain that in many cases, especially among the males, has its origins in their low social status during their formative years:
For every boy, there comes a critical moment when the boy has to decide whether he’s gonna stand up and fight or whether he is going to try to talk his way out of it. And the boys who talk their way out of it, if they allow themselves to delude themselves into thinking that they had won a victory, they are at extreme risk of becoming Gamma males and SJWs.
And the reason is, that they’ve began to lie to themselves about reality. They’ve began to construct, to lay the foundations of the delusion bubble that they’re surrounded in. Because the key thing about both Social Justice and Gamma males is that they lie relentlessly to themselves. They lie to everyone else, but the first person that they lie to is themselves.
And so… I think that you could build a moderately reasonable case to argue that they are literally insane. I’m not totally sure about that… but their rejection of reality and their insistence on the ability of their words to construct the reality that they prefer, is something that is at least akin to madness.
Their lies to themselves involve the idea that others are fooled. They also involve the idea that they had been victorious.
He offers Pajama Boy and John Scalzi as examples of deluded Gamma males. Specifically in their cases, their grandiose claims of being formidable debaters.
There is so much dishonesty and so much delusion tied up in it, that you know it comes from a place of psychological torment. These are people who are literally living in their own Hell every day, and the only way that they can escape it, is to try to bring that Hell to the world.
And that Hell, they had brought to the world.
I’ll tie together two seemingly unrelated things, VD’s comment above and the video below. The video contrasts footage of Muslim children’s procession in the U.K. chanting religious slogans with a video of native children in Poland marching in patriotic colors.
Hell is… demographic engineering in Western Europe.
The reason to see the short video, especially if you’re English, is two-fold. Watch its first half for a confirmation that the leaders of your country are illegitimate, therefore there is a problem to be solved. And its second half, as a reminder of what is possible in your own country — an aspirational “how things can be” vision demonstrated in Eastern Europe, where the caprices of history, human effort, and God’s own grace are protecting their people from invasion. The scene from Poland is a burst of sunlight.
