Manipulation 101: Frame the Discussion Around a Minor Point

There is a tendency by manipulators, by both the conscious and unconscious variety, to focus on a minor point and make their entire case and argument from that minor point, as a means of getting their way for the entire discussion. Focusing on a minor detail and statistical anomaly is a red herring intended to distract people from the main discussion, and is often used as a means by manipulators […] Read more »

The Left’s Use of Name Calling as a Means of Getting Their Way

I often get reduced to a homophobe, bigot, or transphobe because I oppose agenda driven manipulation of the LGBTQ lifestyle for political gain. There is a quote from Frederic Bastiat, in his pamphlet “The Law” that pertains to this reductionist strawmanning of nuanced thinkers, where he states that: Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every […] Read more »

Misconceptions About Free Speech & Domination

One of the biggest weaknesses of the West, and of America in particular, is it’s naivety against predators utilizing the liberties of the West to exploit and engineer the downfall of the West.  This means using the free market to create a corporate monopoly as a means of ending open competition, and using the freedoms of speech as a means of ending free speech and individual autonomy. As an example […] Read more »

The Trivium, the Dunning-Kruger Effect, and Intellectual Self-Defense w/ Dylan Moore

Dylan Moore from the Volitional Science Network and I had a discussion on the Trivium, the Dunning-Kruger Effect, and how to use intellectual self-defense with those displaying the Dunning-Kruger Effect, which is his specialty. If you’d like to hear a thoughtful conversation, feel free to check it out.   Follow Dylan Moore at the Volitional Science Network: https://www.youtube.com/user/CrazyVysty Here’s the video where I first discovered Dylan, and where I learned […] Read more »

The Burden of Proof & Violent Mass Events

The burden of proof lies with someone who is making a claim, and is not upon anyone else to disprove. The inability, or disinclination to disprove a claim does not make it valid. “Bertrand declares that a teapot is, at this very moment, in orbit around the Sun between Earth and Mars, and that because no one can prove him wrong his claim is therefore valid.” ~Your Logical Fallacy Is […] Read more »

Miniature Authoritarians & their Obsession with Compassion

Be aware that love, compassion, health, and respect are the main reasons for using force against you and all individuals who do not agree with the various flavors of authoritarian beliefs out there. Such people quite enjoy using their perceived sense of power, whether it stems from being in the majority, or from being in an actual position of power, to compel you to bend to their will. They’ll even […] Read more »

Duality vs Polarity

Polarity is the fourth of only seven Hermetic Principles, which are the foundational laws of nature. “Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites.” ~The Kybalion, Polarity: The Fourth Hermetic Principle We make the distinction that duality and polarity are not the same thing. While polarities may be dual in nature, they’re not a duality. Duality is when things are wanted/unwanted (good/bad), but if you look […] Read more »

Crash Course on the Fundamentals of Defense Against Manipulation

The exact breakdown of the line which separates win-win interactions from win-lose interactions. One of the big questions of philosophy I never see people dive into is when it is NOT time to argue properly, or when to stop worrying about how to argue. This is not an overview of philosophical reasoning and the breakdown of how deductive arguments work. This video contains a crash course Fundamentals of intellectual self-defense […] Read more »

Toxic Masculinity or a Lack of Emotional Intelligence?

What’s being described as “toxic masculinity” is just a lack of emotional intelligence, which is something that women can lack as well. Emotional intelligence is the ability to turn one’s intelligence back in on itself, and to use intelligence as a guide to navigate one’s feelings. Creating the erroneous label of toxic masculinity misdiagnoses the issue by basing it on a superficial character trait, sets women against men, which in […] Read more »

The Collusion Between the So-Called Capitalist Payment Processors and the Neo-Marxist Social Justice Warriors

I wonder why progressives are so against capitalism when big name capitalist corporations, literally those who specifically deal in processing capital, such as MasterCard, Stripe, and PayPal, are furthering their cause by deplatforming anybody right of their far left ideologies? The SJW’s (social justice warriors), media companies, video game companies, and big banks are all aligned on censoring influential people right of the far far progressive left. The companies in […] Read more »

Needing mirrors

Right on about his example about apples and oranges, where he said something to the effect that “I prefer apples” suddenly means “what, you don’t like oranges?” The subjective, which is the realm of preferences, has been turned into the realm of objective needs, and made into the same thing. This drops everyone right into Karpman’s Drama Triangle of victim, villain, and hero. In his example, the subjective preference of […] Read more »

Jordan Peterson Responds to Angry Letters from Student Critics

Jordan Peterson on the mindless #NPC‘s who repetitively spew forth their ideology without actually having thought themselves to their own conclusions. “People don’t have ideas. Ideas have people.” ―Carl Jung We’ve created an integrative methodology called “the Unity Process“, which combines the Hermetic Principles (Natural Law), the Trivium Method, Socratic Questioning, Jungian shadow work, and the Emotional Freedom Techniques (meridian tapping)—into an easy to use system that allows people to […] Read more »

How do Globalists Divide Us? Globalist Balkanisation

To learn how decentralization, through using divide and conquer techniques to fragment a society, can lead to a centralized world government, I highly recommend watching this video. The open racism against whites that is now occurring, through encouraging open immigration and being openly racist against white people, is an attempt at dividing western society to the point that we collectivize into smaller, more manageable groups. We’re getting played at epic […] Read more »

The Marginalization of “Conspiracy Theories” Due to a Lack of Empirical Proof

Many people will marginalize collusion and conspiracy as a “conspiracy theory” because there is not enough empirical proof to properly explain the crime. It should be noted that empiricism is just one tool in the bag of those who draw on the values of the enlightenment period, and that rationalism is also an important tool to draw on from enlightenment values. Rationalism does not require empirical proof, and since the […] Read more »

The Alt-Right Subversion of the Right

When people don’t know the difference between right and left, it allows Leftists to take over the whole of politics. The Alt-Right has become the latest manifestation of this subversion, since people are foolish enough to think national socialism is right-wing. ~RockingMrE More on the so-called “alt-right”, and why it is actually on the left: Richard Spencer, Wilsonian Progressive, by Dinesh D’Souza Read more »
