We’re all familiar with the crybullying behavior of SJWs by now. We’ve seen the no-platformings and ritual denunciations and high-profile media lynchings and destruction of livelihoods and criminalization of dissent from people who curl up into a fetal position and demand safe spaces if you stand up to them with so much as a dot reply. We’re familiar with how they can see “rape culture” in a piece of burnt toast, and swarm unsuspecting people to demand apologies for the slightest perceived “problematic” behavior, while approving everything up to and including child molestation in their own allies. We’ve seen them attacking members of “marginalized” groups with utter ruthlessness when one dissents in the slightest from what they’re told to believe.

This is the behavior characteristic of totalitarians, those who believe your every thought, your every waking moment, every aspect of your life, should be dominated by and assimilated to their political narrative.

But why do they behave this way? Isn’t being a totalitarian just a lot of work and stress? Well, the immediate reason is that, like all totalitarians, they are pushing a narrative that conflicts with observable reality, and they know it. Getting people to submit to their narrative therefore requires preventing them from acknowledging reality. This requires that the false narrative be constantly pounded into people’s minds everywhere they go, and that they be prevented from reflecting and thinking rationally about it, because if they are left to their own devices, they will naturally see what’s right in front of their noses, and reality will be allowed in to destroy the narrative. As such, EVERYTHING in your life needs to be turned into propaganda for the narrative – the video games you play, the books you read, the comedy you watch, the radio you listen to, the people you associate with – ALL of it. You must be given no respite, no rest, nowhere to escape to even for a moment, because any sort of escapism is likely to allow you to entertain thoughts that conflict with the narrative, that recover your sanity and reorient you to reality.

But what would cause somebody to want to push a narrative that they know is false onto everyone else? What’s at the root of these twisted freaks’ mania? Let’s dig down to the core…

For Shame!

Every SJW has something that they’re deeply ashamed of, something that makes them feel guilty or insecure, and this is the key to understanding everything else about them. You may have noticed that our enemies have enough skeletons in their closets to fully replenish the world’s oil supplies if they were underground – from pedos, to sibling sex-assaulters, to literal shit-eaters, to guys that think that rape is funny, to pedos, to guys that fail to report rape, to trannies that sleep with men without disclosure, to pedos, to women who abuse their boyfriends, to virulent racism, to pedos, to general all-around sociopathy – nearly all of these people’s lives are complete and utter trainwrecks, and this is no coincidence.

Of course, nearly everyone is ashamed of something, so that doesn’t explain SJWs all by itself. SJWs are made by how they deal with it. There are a lot of healthy ways to deal with shame, depending on the underlying reason for it. You can seek to improve your habits, you can repent and make amends to people you’ve wronged, you can seek forgiveness from God, you can realize that it’s nothing to be ashamed of and come to terms with it, you can find some escape to help you cope, etc.

But SJWs deal with it in the worst way possible, and that’s the factor that makes them SJWs. The SJW seeks to rationalize away their shame by pinning the blame for it on everyone else. “There’s nothing wrong with me,” they tell themselves, “I only feel bad because society has oppressed me with it’s arbitrary, regressive norms. In fact, I’m more progressive and enlightened that everyone else for realizing this. They should be ashamed! I should be judging them!”1390268866106

There are many difference sources of an SJW’s shame. Many of them are things they should rightly be ashamed of, but some aren’t. But regardless of where they start, once a person engages in this thought process, they begin their life as an SJW. And after attacking innocent people and lying constantly for just a short time, all SJWs rack up plenty of misdeeds to be legitimately ashamed of in short order.

Not Just A River In Egypt

In any successful functioning society, most of its fundamental norms are ultimately based in hard non-negotiable reality, otherwise it wouldn’t have achieved success in the first place or will soon cease to function. That means the SJW, in declaring society’s norms evil and arbitrary, must deny the reality they are based on as well. This means lying to himself on a regular basis about what’s right in front of his nose.

And the SJW can’t tell himself just one lie. In the words of Walter Scott, “Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!” This applies to self-deception as much as any other kind. Telling yourself one lie quickly requires you to tell dozens more in order to shore up that first one, as more and more conflicts between the lie and reality present themselves. The SJW must continually mindkill himself to prevent reality from seeping in and unraveling the web of lies upholding his self-imposed delusions.

To take one common concrete example, a woman might feel ashamed because she’s unsuccessful at work and has no marriage prospects due to major personality flaws. Instead of taking responsibility for her own failures, she tells herself that her problems all stem from “patriarchal norms” creating discrimination in the workplace and placing oppressive relationship expectations on women. But she can’t stop there. There are inherent, biological differences between men and women which account for their differing workplace performance and what they look for in a mate, so to dismiss the “patriarchal norms” that arise from them, she has pretend that those differences are themselves illusions created by “the patriarchy” and that gender is a social construct. When people present proof that boys and girls are different from infancy, she must rationalize that even that is just the product of “patriarchy,” until she’s so thoroughly ensconced in her own lies that she finds herself advocating for brainwashing infants and bullying young children.

SJWs Always Lie Together

Pushing a narrative that flies in the face of reality is not a one man job, or even a one genderfluid transblack gopherkin’s job. You won’t get far insisting that the sky is beige when everyone around you just laughs in your face and points to the blue sky. To lie to yourself and others, you need allies – a unified mob all screaming the same false narrative and intimidating anyone who points out reality into silence. Only then might you be able to condition people out of their confidence in reality and coerce them into submitting to the narrative that there are five lights. The need for a mob to push a lie is the reason that radical left-wing movements like “social justice” are collectivist.

But where do you find a big enough mob? You aren’t likely to find a whole lot of people who share your belief that your feelbads are all the fault of society’s oppressive norms telling you you can’t swing your ladydick around in the girls’ locker room. Not that many women share your particular problem of having cheated on your boyfriend five times in two months for career advancement while believing it terribly sexist that most people don’t wholeheartedly approve. The number of multi-millionaires who believe they’re “marginalized” because bandaids don’t match their skin tone and the cafeteria puts too much cream in their soul food is probably just a bit short of a majority. Most men are not, like you, highly insecure cucks who have told themselves that the blue-haired landwhales they worship will sexually favor them when, come the revolution, “toxic masculinity” is overthrown and their libidos are no longer drawn to those awful muscled assholes with normal levels of testosterone that the patriarchy has tricked the fair porcine damsels into thinking they want.

But what if you could combine the people with those particular hang-ups together with every other shame-wracked malcontent with a hate-boner for Western Civilization into one giant mob of human dysfunction? Well, that is what SocJus is all about!

oppression_olympics_by_therantsofreason-d7w9sfx-e1448342857781

It works like this: Each person agrees to push everyone else’s bullshit in return for having their own bullshit pushed. So Fred the pedophile has no interest in cheating on his wife, and Ted the womanizer has no interest in diddling children. But Fred rails against “society’s unrealistic expectations of monogamy” and Ted waxes sympathetic about the plight of “ethical pedophiles” who are “marginalized” by “evil, uncaring right-wing zealots.” And both of them also rail against “patriarchy” and “white privilege” and “heteronormativity” and “cisnormativity” and “Islamophobia” and all the rest, and proponents of those causes take up Fred and Ted’s causes too.

SJWs actually have a term for this that you’ve probably heard before: “intersectionality.” Wikipedia defines it as “the study of overlapping or intersecting social identities and related systems of oppression, domination or discrimination.” It layman’s terms, it’s just all the self-deluding sad sacks getting together to push each other’s bullshit and form a combined rent-a-mob to tear down civilization with.

intersectionality

It’s clever in a way. Not only does “intersectionality” allow SJWs to form a bigger mob, it also allows each person in that mob to posture as a big damn hero who is altruistically “fighting injustice” on behalf of everyone else, when in fact they are tearing down society and attacking innocent people purely out of their own selfish spite.

As a result, the SJW ends up swallowing everyone else’s lies on top of his own. As each new group of delusional malcontents is added to the SocJus fold, it hurtles ever further towards wholesale intellectual and moral inversion, wherein every failure, every lie, and every evil is rationalized as good and praiseworthy, and all success, all truth, and all virtue is denounced as evil and oppressive.

Conclusion

What I’ve laid out here are the fundamentals of what passes for the SocJus thought process. The shame, the denial of reality, and the collectivism are the keys to understanding them. All their totalitarian behaviors follow like clockwork from these, and once you get them, all the bizarre things they do become comprehensible.

In a future followup, I plan to explain exactly how some of the specific things they do follow from this primer, so keep your eyes peeled. Got any questions? Put them in the comments.

  1. Excellent article- I think I’ll add my two cents worth, though it’s probably overpriced.

    Pushing a belief system that holds reality in contempt seems to be the common feature that links the worst of religions, ideologies, and cults.

    At the core, they all posit a false version of reality that does one key thing- makes the ‘in group’ feel righteous, while vilifying and dehumanizing dissenters.

    I’m struck by the similarities between original sin and invisible privilege, the omnipresent nefarious influence of Satan and the structural, insidious conditioning of the patriarchy. Unseen, unfalsifiable evil that validates any recourse.

    Their belief makes them belong to something larger than themselves- something that by definition is good, and the act of belief makes the believer good by extension. Not through any merit of their own, but through their devotion. Agreement, conformity, is automatic virtue to them.

    And who doesn’t want to belong? Who doesn’t want to feel accepted, righteous, transformative, validated? Who doesn’t want a socially approved outlet to spew hate onto others- an easy means of becoming better than others? No work required.

    I think that’s why these false versions of reality hold such appeal.

    It’s like a drug. Why work hard to feel good when you can just get a quick artificial high, and escape those pesky reality-based bad feelings?

    I also think this is where the SJW obsession with “narratives” originates.

    You hear them bang on endlessly about how “narratives” are powerful, and shape reality, and therefore entertainment must be policed.

    “Narratives” do shape behavior- by which I mean, propositions that people believe to be factual shape their actions. So in that sense, “narratives” are powerful.

    But SJWs conflate that with entertainment, stories taking place in a context understood by healthy people to be fictional.

    What do others think of the common features that cults, ideologies, and religions share? I’m beginning to feel like, underneath the surface, it’s all the same beast. It might be valuable to get a solid handle on what the defining elements are that makes for such contagious ideas.

    Thanks again for the good article, thought provoking.

    1. SJW promises the perfect placebo for those messed up but weak people who in a sense might have lacked better opportunities to better themselves.

      They’re not stupid, they’re not fat, they’re not terrible unlikable people, it’s all the patriarchy’s fault, and everyone else is more “privileged” and so the world is unfair towards them and everyone else owes them back.

      No need to try, no need to improve or have some responsibility, since nothing is their fault and there’s nothing they can do anyway, because patriarchy,privilege, etc.

    2. Agreed.
      Cults, I see, can be made up of well-intentioned people, but they’re often exploited by those with higher “rank” within the cult. It’s true that there’s little difference between a cult and a religion, apart from how they offer a service to a community. Religions can offer services like counselling, whereas a cult serves itself (or its figurehead).

      Cults, in my experience, also posit to its followers worst case scenarios. In martial arts cults, it’s the knife wielding maniac who needs to be taken down. In other circles it’s the potential rapist in every man.

      Cults feed off offering people somewhere they can feel both safe and powerful. The teachings of the cult provide followers the belief in both. Cultist believe they are truly enlightened and the rest of society are blind automatons.

  2. I’ve thought a lot about SJWs and what kind of people they are and the first thing I’ve noticed about them is I’ve rarely come across them in real life. That leads me to believe that platforms such as Twitter are the root cause of the public collusion and mass hysteria that coincides with the explosion of Twitter in 2009 because it amplifies their voices far beyond their actual percentage of the population.

    SJWs seem to be comprised of two general elements: the first are the minority but driving force within the movement that seem to be a smorgasbord of mentally ill women and politicized lesbians. Self pity, irrational suspicions of racial and sexual groupings and narcissism seem to be key elements.

    The second is the majority: a mish-mash of people who seem to genuinely be the now proverbial “rebel without a cause.” They have taken on racialized lesbian liberation ideology as an anti-oppression movement in the same way whites marched with Martin Luther King to protest Jim Crow. The difference is that – unlike Jim Crow – there is no such thing as “white privilege,” “rape culture,” “misogyny” as a baseline element of being a man, etc.

    What that all adds up to are people who are violently against due process, free speech and equal protection all the while they feel they are crusading for those things. The anti-free speech element is uncontroversial; it exists. It must exist when you assert tens of millions of men are pro-rape or that heterosexuality was invented. None of that can withstand scrutiny and so debate is out.

    They are against due process. Asserting all whites are racists and men erstwhile rapists calls for the abolition of due process.

    They are against equal protection. Asserting women, gays and non-whites can’t be misandrists, heterophobes or racists and are therefore worthy of special laws, quotas and other protections flies in the face of equal protection. They insist on segregated awards, rooms, literature, history books, anthologies, etc.

    In order to qualify for the second group requires naivete, ignorance and a lack of real world experience common to internet shut-ins or people who only hang around like-minded people.

  3. Makes sense. Doesn’t help that when these sorts of people get to college–and even high school, now–they’re inculcated with cultural Marxist dogma.

  4. a narrative to push in 2016:

    “Hey, so, anti-racism is a thing the vast majority of society agrees on, is a good thing, and anyone campaigning for that must be nice and deserves to be helped?

    Well, think about this: Hey, so, family values is a thing the vast majority of society agrees on, is a good thing, and anyone campaigning for that must be nice and deserves to be helped?

    But when you hear that second bit, you don’t necessarily agree, even though ‘family values’ are still at their heart good things. Problem is, when you have something where just advocating for it makes you good and gets you social capital, the worst people go to it and abuse it. Just like the hard right overdosed on family values and other similar things, the hard left is now in the throes of an anti-racism overdose.

    this is too lengthy and it’s tough to get people into initially but it’s basically horseshoe theory + the idea that any holy mantle will attract the worst people (see:priests. good exampel to use as well). anyhow this is a strong narrative if we can get it going.

  5. What a nice article.
    If put in such clear terms, sjw really carry the torch of totalitarism albeit in a new flavour.
    That’s really one of the best words to describe the mentality they follow.
    They almost remind me of all the usual sci fi totalitarian coalitions of aliens like Halo’s covenant, a group of crazies made up of different groups that were abosrbed into it by either destroying or absorbing everything else in their path.
    And it’s great to point out how deeply messed up the SJW are because it’s an elephant that often sits in the room dancing while some people choose to ignore it.
    SJW are not right, they got issues and they are messed up, almost always to the point it is no coincidence it is not a regular thing, it is a deep part of what makes them and their movement the abomination it is.

  6. Some part of me thinks SJW’s they just create these buzzwords to confuse people and make them lose focus of their true intent which is to screw us that will have no truck with their behaviour over and by the time we are trying to clear things up, they take over.

  7. To be fair, almost all kinds of ideology can exercise totalitarianism

    The phenomenon you’re describing is better labelled the egalitarian mindset, in which anything can be justified in the quest for equality/compassion, regardless of reality, utility, or even considering whether or not those things are infinitely good

    1. you are Chinese man living in Canada talking smack about Western SJWs. You should go back to China and live there with rest of your Asiatic cousins.

      If I ever saw you, I would give you a boot party and stomp your chink ass. Stay in your own country country chink gook slanted eye slope.

      1. Hey knightrider101 as a born and raised Canadian if I ever see you or anyone else doing that I will knock you down and stomp on your face until you you go limp.

        1. lately I been noticing a lot of non-whites in particularly asians coming into manosphere blog. You guys follow us EVERYWHERE we go. RoK was meant for straight heterosexual white men. I think you asians should make your own manosphere website. Most of what we talk about aren’t really going to help asians you know? I mean deep down inside most of us want you guys out of our country.

          Don’t you have any shame in knowing that you are Chinese, a race of copycat (that’s what all Asians are actually). You guys steal every patent technology from us and you are completely shameless about it. None of us here likes blacks, muslims, hispanics. Don’t think that you asians are immune. If there was a race war, you guys will equally perish.

          WHITE POWER!!!!

          1. non-whites have always been in the manosphere and ROK isn’t meant for whites only

            if you had the guts to wage race war people like me wouldnt be living in your countries to begin with

            but something tells me your idea of white power is throwing fits on the internet

          2. Terry, you need to UP and REVAMP your understanding of the English language, if you intend to stay in our part of the world. Otherwise, you can move to China and carry two dung buckets at the ends of the pole on your shoulder. Prefer that, do you? Then, learn to write proper English.

            For instance, run-on sentences (such as “Japan could easily reconcile with China if it took the right steps, our forms of government has nothing to do with it”) are indicative of your limited education. You just can’t seem to stop running sentences together so that they look like twisted noodles in a bowl. That’s another horrible example of your inability to express yourself properly in English.

            In addition that sentence also demonstrates your lack of understanding of syntactic coherence, because “our forms of government has nothing to do with it” is incorrect. It’s not “has” which would correspond with a singular subject. The correct verb form is “have” because the subject of that second-half of your run-on sentence is actually the word “forms” and not the object of the preposition within the subject.

            You obviously thought that “government” was the subject. Only children and the mentally defective in America misunderstand that relationship. As you’ve been instructed by your teachers, the verb form has to correspond with the subject. Why haven’t you learned? Were you too drunk at the time? Were you partying when you should have been learning?

            All of this indicates to me that you were probably educated in an American school but in the lower registers. These are maintained for foreigners who have no hope of learning correct English. Such foreigners often appear on these posts and flaunt their low mentalities with substandard English. You’re beneath contempt for wasting your opportunity to get a good education.

            So, get up off your dead ass and get me a bowl of noodles, boy. Hop to, HopSing!

    2. I almost agree. What causes the incentive towards totalitarianism is specifically when an ideology flies in the face of reality, and of human nature most especially, creating a need to prevent people from acknowledging reality in order for the ideology’s narrative to survive. Marxism/Stalinism/Maoism flew in the face of economic laws in particular.

      Imo, the “equality,” “compassion,” and “egalitarianism” are mere rationalizations that SJWs come up with to justify their actions. The actual, underlying motivation is the shame and hatred of society.

  8. I think everyone here can agree that it’s okay for minorities to have equal paying jobs, and equal social standing in the world.

    How far people go with self victimization makes me sick, though.
