Talking about easily verifiable material history alienates people because they live in a simulated world composed entirely out of fictions developed by social engineers & public relations departments.
“Bro just simplify it for me...”

As soon as you “abstract” from material facts, you create a simulation— a historical fiction.

“Why did America have a Revolution?”
“Let’s start with Cromwell...”
“Who?”
“Ok, so, maybe we need to start earlier”
“I’m getting bored dude”
“Why did we go into WWII?”
“We have to start with the history of the British Empire...”
“I thought it was because Hitler Bad”
“That’s certainly what the public relations department said, but Hitler was on Time Magazine covers not long before that”
“So?”
Everything Americans believe about history is a fiction designed by committee in the creation of monopolised history curriculum textbooks printed by one of three corporations all three of which were on the board of the Office of War Information.
To even begin to get to a material accounting of our history, we have to clear away a complicated fabrication which is supported by every institution as “history”— it would take me at least a month to fully “deprogram” the average normie historical imagination.
I do not believe there is even a remote probability for this “revision” to reach some sort of “critical mass”— the main thing in the way is that “it has no utility” if you’re trying to become a sentimental engineer or PR guy for American empire.
“So what?”

Is the question, every time— “ok so MKULTRA LSD so what? You don’t like American Culture? You don’t love freedom?”

Ah— yes— this is the missing piece of my D&D thred, knew KB would have it— every single “RPG” derives from group psychotherapy games designed by this guy
en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacob_L._…
Psychodrama— group psychotherapy as “improvisational theater”— he gets plugged into the cybernetics guys & they create “rollenspiele” or “role-playing games”
Simultaneously uses these RPGs to model “social networks” (the origin of the term)

I like this KJV preacher’s take on how the splintering of protestantism proves that it’s the true church because only people who take scripture seriously would divide over “trivia”— Jesus is not a “uniter”— Jesus always says he is “creating divisions”
The best catholics & orthos are usually “almost heretical” or are later considered heretical— they usually “split” from the center. Think of Father Zosima in Karamazov being condemned for “straying” etc
The best saints founded orders that “split” from the others.

The jesuits are the worst because they wanted to BIND EVERYONE TOGETHER.

The multiverse is a pagan mythology. Jesus’s existence demands that there is only one world, one reality. Aristotlean paganism is “multiverse”— Platonic theology is a monad. Aristo. cosmology is “perspectivism” multiverse. ImageImage
Zoomer Witch Cheat Code Imperial Paganism— “everyone exists in their own reality & you can reality shift by altering your beliefs & thru magick”— Crowley & Jack Parsons at Rocketdyne— everyone tripping, MKULTRA. Image
I understand the Desert Fathers.

I think a good definition of Neoliberalism is “believing that the world is a video game”
Video Games are the Neoliberal-art-form bar none— gamers become neoliberals because they take “systems theory” as deeper engagement with the world than history. They will always be Neoliberals so long as they are “Gamers.”
Drones are operated with the same controller & ui on call of duty & in reality.

I don’t trust people who play Dungeons & Dragons.
It was designed by Chicago school anthropologists trying to gamify identify formation in a “pulp” context using sociological game-theory techniques developed for military intelligence. That Humans of CIA clip had these tabletop rpg accoutrements because that’s what they do lol
Learning how to LARP an “authentic identity” supposing “freedom of choice” in a simulated world constrained by game mechanics— that’s a useful skill today right? Here at McDonalds corp we are LARPing as family.

Hipsters got a bad rep for no good reason. Now you have Disney Adult culture. Wasn’t it better when we were culturally ruled by autocratic autists who dug in the crates & competed for esoteric credentials becoming so obscure that their values could only be understood by god?
“Name five of their albums” is a legitimate form of Cultural Bildung— debate me.
Now we have: “it’s too much emotional labor for me to have to do any work to acquire cultural authority. I am just as valid a critic even though I only watch disney+ & listen to whatever’s trending.”
