Why People Are So F***ing Stupid

HBO fantasy soap opera “Game of Thrones” features a butt-kicking woman- actually several butt-kicking women, but this one is the most prominent-

Women are powerful warriors on TV, right? So they must be powerful warriors in real life! Well, not all, but some! It wouldn’t be faaaaiiiiirrrrrr not to let them be in the infantry!

And gays are all delightful people that love to sing and dance and gossip and wear terrific clothes and your children are perfectly safe around them!

People really believe what they see on TV. TV is more real to them than reality. What they see in their own lives they are trained to regard as anomalous, while the images on TV are responsible representations of reality. People understand that they are to believe what they are told, or they will suffer consequences. Most of the population has internalized this.

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

  1. This was an uncharacteristically bitter post for you. Hope every thing is OK!
    (*I agree 100% with what you said about TV. I’ve always said the same thing!)

    TV is more real to them than reality.
    By construction. Existing incentives combine to produce a competition in whose TV is more real.

    Why would you expect differently? We’ve evolved over millions of years to mostly believe what we see, not what we think. You can’t change that without a shit load of selective breeding.

    • Yes but “see” in real life experience. As in seeing that in real life when heavy work is done it is done by men.

      The trouble with video and film is that it looks real. Maybe the brain of a simple person can’t factor this in.

      • Candide III says:

        Of course not! I have seen this first hand. Cast around for relatives whom you can observe and interview on this subject. And of course video and film is (competitively) designed to suppress the operation of such critical faculty as there is. I.a., that’s why Lenin has remarked that “of all the arts, the one most important to us is cinema”.

      • Red says:

        It’s not just stupid people. Visual propaganda works on everyone. I think people’s defenses against such things are less intelligence and more actual experience with the subject matter.

        Visual propaganda primarily creates stereo types about how the world works. That’s why the left is obsessed with keeping non leftist stereo types out of the media and re-enforcing their desired stereo types. In this case the stereo type pushed there are women stronger than men. This is largely false image, but because there’s nothing to refute it in everyday life most people just accept that it must be normal, but they are simply not around such women.

        Actual experience and hard data*

    In fairness, warrior women aren’t completely unheard of. This lady carved a bloody path across colonial South America, for example (I bet she inflated her body count in her memoirs, but I still wouldn’t want to cross swords with her). I like the Brienne character from Game of Thrones because at least she’s a big woman; the tiny waif tossing around men twice her size is a massively overplayed trope.

    • An anomaly doesn’t say anything about the whole. Vox Day commented that large women are quite slow, and Martin would know this if he had any martial arts experience.

      • Matt Strictland says:

        I agree with our host here for the most part. Women do not belong on combat though I am not opposed to some dangerous jobs for them. Women police (for some roles) snipers (for a homeguard not field work) and assasins where warrented are doable,

        As to Martin. ignoring the fact the series is fantasy I’ve read the 1st book and its and the book at least is true to reality in ways the T.V isn’t.

        There are two “warrior” women in the series that I know of , one a person training to be an asssasin who also knows fencing (plausible) and Brienne who while strong as some men and wants to be a knight through some loophole and is considered a freak being treated accordingly.

        Martin didn’t screw things up that much.

    It’s all about their soft power, which is why I say attack the soft power by tiger parenting and instilling the meme “dominate or be dominated.” If you want to dominate, you have to do things that in the course of which, you will no longer be under the control of the soft power.

    The liberals want everyone to be drug addicted, tattooed, obese and promiscuous. So do the opposite of these. This is the first step of all WN activism.

    this may be a dumb comment, but dont you think its likely the warrior women in a lot of these fantasy genre offerings are based on the long tradition of warrior women and goddesses of war found from greek to roman to scandinavian to celtic mythology all across europe? its not like game of thrones isn’t explicitly based in british isles history and mythology, which is replete with war goddesses. like lawful neutral said, at least she is a big dykey behemoth, not like the waif kristen stewart donning armor and fighting men with zero training in snow white and the huntsman

    • These goddesses are symbolic, not meant to represent actual human beings. Being goddesses, they have characteristics and powers not shared by mortals. The societies that used these symbols would never have considered putting women in combat.

      • dana says:

        there are dragons and zombies in it too, its a fairy tale, not a documentary. ill stop watching it the day a numinous negro becomes the wise high king, at least i havent had my sensibilities assaulted with that by the show yet, like in every other show i try to watch

    Dominatrix porn possibly?

    “The battle for the mind of North America will be fought in the video arena: the Videodrome. The television screen is the retina of the mind’s eye. Therefore, the television screen is part of the physical structure of the brain. Therefore, whatever appears on the television screen emerges as raw experience for those who watch it. Therefore, television is reality, and reality is less than television.: — Videodrome

    I was talking to an ex jail guard from oakland ca the other day and he had a lot of experience with lady cops. We both had interactions (he, much more than I) with an oakland female police officer named Wendy, who he considers to be the only female cop equal to, or better than, most male cops. She is a self contained, self controlled, competent, badassian from the planet Badass. A cop’s cop. He says all the other female cops are on patrol for very short times before they get their guns taken away by perps, who then beat them half to death with them and drag their faces all over the concrete. Lesson learned, these chicks then get non-dangerous jobs. This happens all the time, but is never publicised.
