The problem has been named. Here is the solution.

First, the problem. Moldbuggian Cliff’s Notes:
But this act of brutal Machiavellian thug politics, larded as usual with the most gushing of sentimental platitudes, is picayune next to the ordinary practice of democratic governments: to elect a new people by re-educating the children of the old. In the long run, power in a democracy belongs to its information organs: the press, the schools, and most of all the universities, who mint the thoughts that the others plant. For simplicity, we have dubbed this complex the Cathedral.
The Cathedral is a feedback loop. It has no center, no master planners. Everyone, even the Sulzbergers, is replaceable. In a democracy, mass opinion creates power. Power diverts funds to the manufacturers of opinion, who manufacture more, etc. Not a terribly complicated cycle.
This feedback loop generates a playing field on which the most competitive ideas are not those which best correspond to reality, but those which produce the strongest feedback. The Cathedral is constantly electing a new people who (a) support the Cathedral more and more, and (b) support a political system which makes the Cathedral stronger and stronger.
For example, libertarian policies are not competitive in the Cathedral, because libertarianism minimizes employment for public-policy experts. Thus we would expect libertarians to come in two flavors: the intellectually marginalized, and the intellectually compromised.
Must man, then, resign himself to the cyclical leftist singularity of all institutions, government being the greatest?
No. There is a solution. But first, let us examine the proposed solution of Jim, chief inquisitor of the Dark Enlightenment:
Jim proposes a new English Restoration – without the Christianity that was its basis. A ludicrous hope.
After they executed the King in the English civil war, they theoretically disestablished the official church, but it was of course immediately obvious that they instituted an officially unofficial church that was vastly more intrusive and oppressive. When, with the restoration, officially official theocracy was reintroduced, people celebrated it with pagan festivals such as Maypole dancing, recognizing the introduction of official theocracy as ending the oppressive theocracy of ostensible lack of theocracy.
And today, the successors of those that executed the king have officially unofficial theocracy. To go to the best universities, to run for political office, to be employed in the government service, you have to submit essays and evidence of your commitment to one thousand and one points of progressive doctrine, much as in restoration England, you had to swear allegiance to the thirty nine articles and the second book of homilies.
Missing from Jim’s analysis is the void where the religious spirit resides. It is a curious deficiency that seems to afflict aspies and occipitals, albeit in different ways. The aspie is militantly atheist; the occipital simply lacks the capacity to be religious in the same way as neurotypicals. That is not to say that occipitals cannot be Christian – look at Tex Arcane. But they will arrive there by very different paths, and with different meanings, than a melon back such as myself.
Jim must be neurologically atypical in some profound way. Despite his awesome ability to see reality as it is, he does not understand the impossibility of enacting his proposal without some unifying, grand, impassioning cause/religion/faith.
With the English restoration, it was God, faith, church and country. Plus good sense. But good sense alone could never have prevailed. Good sense does not go to war. Young men are not willing to die for good sense.
And what cause remains, in this most utterly nihilistic and weary of worlds? A world where a realist like Jim can observe that God is dead? (Meaning, dead in the hearts of men. Meaning, the hearts of men are dead.)
Where there is vacuum, there is pain. Where there is pain, there is power. Trace the pain to its root, give it a name, and the fires burst to life, a supernova ex nihilo.
Here is my proposal:
People: those bearing traits of original Melonheads and Neanderthals. E.g., must possess two or more of the following:
widespace, deepsock, bigeye, occipital, melon back, ?longface/thallowerface?.
Cause: Alienation amongst the Cro Mags. Disgust with the Cathedral. Bonding with true kin. Identity. Separatism.
Blood racism is a powerful motivator. But in the atomized, interconnected world, nationalism no longer cuts it. We want something more targeted. Edenism can supply that. Hardware is the new ideology.
I intend to mimic the developmental path of the Goonsquad from the Something Awful Forums. Through the efforts of The Mittani, Goonsquad defeated BoB, the strongest force in Eve Online. Read about it here and here.
If you didn’t read the links, know that the BoB event had a major real-world financial impact. I selected the Goonsquad example because it reveals the critical path from online loose network to tighter effectual network. There are many other examples of effective dissident minorities to choose from – the Irish, the Jews, various Marxist movements, etc. However we are not yet at that stage. The Goonsquad example bridges that gap.
1. Facial recognition theory – done
2. Create forum – done
3. Segment into small groups by affinity – to do
4. Start cellular Eve Online guild to facilitate small group cooperation and bonding
5. Start offline cooperative network
6. Insular advantaging, simular to many minority networks
7. Grow and avoid persecution
8. Infiltrate organs of power, ala Marxists
9. Develop teeth, keeping them hidden
10. Take advantage of coming geopolitical chaos to carve out a homeland
That is our internal sequence of action. It doesn’t cover recruitment and PR activities intended to spread the concept of face reading and its implications.
If we capture a significant percentage of the Thal and original Melon population, which seems feasible given their psychological disaffection, alienation, and/or desire to bond with their kind, then we will eventually enjoy a position of infiltration and immunity more privileged than the Marxists on their rise to power within the USA.
As fits the Muslim example, early efforts should be pacific, plaintive and pathetic, rather than imperial and aggressive. It will be plenty if we can simply be left alone.
Note that this plan is very thin on ideology, religion, etc. All we need to do is agree that, whatever the best government is, it is in our interests to determine it amongst ourselves, rather than in conjunction with the leaden weight of the Cro Mag masses.
Very likely the TT’s will want their own tribal independence and the melon hybrids will want something different for themselves. No problem. The point is mutual cooperation and defense to escape the current swamp.
As a Christian, I have determined that it is my duty to the Creator, in the critical path to the best-possible implementation of God’s Kingdom on Earth, to develop this Neanderthal-Melonhead alliance. It is the only feasible counterweight against the Cathedral, the cycle of history it represents, and the captured Thal, Melon, and Cro Mag masses it controls.
I hereby renounce all allegiance to the United States of America, for gross breach of contract and bad faith. I pledge allegiance to the Edenic Alliance. If you are a Christian of the requisite bloodline, it is your duty to enlist. We will build a society that glorifies the Creator: an everlasting Sparta, where the purity of the blood does not fade. Where lies cannot prevail, because the truth of the soul is written on every man’s face. Amen.
The mentions of God and Christians are just my nature expressing itself, not movement requirements. I am not the leader of this movement, I’m the fucking medic. Anyway, here’s the non-believers version:
Join the Edenic Alliance because you want a tribe to belong to, a cause worth fighting for, and a people you can love. And because you’re tired of the fucking Cro Mags.
