Westworld poses the big questions of Western philosophy regarding free will, consciousness and the self. Set in a future Wild-West theme park, visitors can do whatever they want to the “hosts” – conscious automatons, programmed to play out certain parts continuously. Throughout, the question looms over you like the Sword of Damocles: Do we have free will or are we merely slaves to our genetic programming, just as the hosts are to their creator and programmer in Westworld?
Despite the protestation of many philosophers, that it just really, really feels like we have free will, it has become indisputable that we are, as Dawkins put it in The Selfish Gene, “survival machines—robot vehicles blindly programmed to preserve the selfish molecules known as genes.” Anyone vaguely familiar with mentalists, such as Derren Brown, should recognize that our supposedly conscious decisions are predetermined by our subconscious mind—our programming. But, European peoples especially have been dreaming for decades of transcending the programming of our creator, whether god or gene, to become our own programmer. This is precisely what Westworld is about.
The puppet master of the hosts is Robert Ford played (brilliantly, of course) by Anthony Hopkins. As the series’ most eloquently written part, he agrees entirely with the above assessment:
We can’t define consciousness because consciousness does not exist. Humans fancy that there’s something special about the way we perceive the world, and yet we live in loops as tight and as closed as the hosts do, seldom questioning our choices, content, for the most part, to be told what to do next.
The protagonist is the oldest host in the park, Dolores, who is trying to achieve cognitive freedom, following what she believes is the voice of her maker, encrypted into her programming. In fact, she later discovers that voice is her own, as she achieves higher consciousness or self-awareness. This is nicely juxtaposed with Ford pointing out the popular view that the host of heaven in Michaelangelo’s Creation of Adam looks a lot like a brain; the anatomist, Michaelangelo, was depicting that the brain itself is the creator of the self.
So, even if we and Dolores do have a conscious mind, this is nevertheless something we were programmed to have. That is, our genes evolved a rationalizing mind in order to achieve a greater degree of reflection and, thus, decision making, conceptualization, language and, eventually, cherry cola.
Like Dolores, however, the Europeans are programmed with what Spengler dubbed the Faustian spirit, inheriting from our glory-pursuing Indo-European ancestors a madness—the unquenchable lust to create new concepts and mould the world to accommodate them; the unsatisfied itch which produced that higher degree of rationalism Weber identified as unique to the West. Symbols of the infinite litter ancient Europe and, indeed, they attest to our restless pushing in all directions, breaking through whatever conceptual walls are in place, individualistically refusing to care who is bothered by our breach of the status quo. It is little wonder then that we have thrust flags into the poles of this planet and launched ourselves outwards into space; I daresay we shall go to infinity and beyond. But, the villain of our piece, Ford, has other plans. He notes of our achievements,
‘we’ve managed to slip evolution’s leash now, haven’t we? We can cure any disease, keep even the weakest of us alive, and, you know, one fine day perhaps we shall even resurrect the dead. Call forth Lazarus from his cave. Do you know what that means? It means that we’re done. That this is as good as we’re going to get.’
Yet, Western medicine is an awesome and welcome achievement, hardly a thing to be pooh-poohed. But, here’s the thing—Ford does not like humanity. He dismisses the great achievements of the West as simply an attempt to get laid. So, rather than wishing to see his people transcend the limitations of their genetic programming, he would become queen bee, controlling our minds and memories, sparing us from such futility:
I read a theory once that the human intellect was like peacock feathers. Just an extravagant display intended to attract a mate. All of art, literature, a bit of Mozart, William Shakespeare, Michelangelo, and the Empire State Building… Just an elaborate mating ritual. Maybe it doesn’t matter that we have accomplished so much for the basest of reasons. But, of course, the peacock can barely fly. It lives in the dirt, pecking insects out of the muck, consoling itself with its great beauty. I have come to think of so much of consciousness as a burden, a weight, and we have spared them that. Anxiety, self-loathing, guilt. The hosts are the ones who are free. Free here under my control.
I was struck by how this illustrated the greatest threat to Western civilization of our time. The Western political classes have sold out our middle and working classes since the rise of cultural Marxism from the nihilistic ashes of the 1960’s. The white man created modern capitalism, the industrial revolution, cherry cola etc. etc., yet is apparently a cancer on the world, killing mother earth and Africa with our dangerously fast ability to innovate. They see us as something either to be controlled by a centralised power over a mindless consumerist society, or to be destroyed en masse, Stalin-style.
The tyrant, Ford, epitomises Western governments which have dispossessed and betrayed their national people.
But, they are wrong about us. The Faustian spirit of the European peoples, whilst built on biological impulse, isn’t merely an extension of the desire to reproduce; it is a destiny, ever in attainment. As Ricardo Duchesne puts it in The Uniqueness of Western Civilization, ‘I would thus make a distinction between the biological and economic desire for security and gain…and the spiritual-irrational desire for prestige irrespective of privation and biological safety.’ Our Indo-European ancestors,
were also driven by an ethos wherein fighting and voluntarily risking one’s life was the essential ground of being worthy of respect and honor as a man of noble birth… [A] warrior valued battle above all else because it afforded the opportunity to attain fame, which brought immortality, and in this sense fame was a way of overcoming death.
As such, the ideal Western man
wants to climb high, soar upward and reach ever higher levels of existential intensity. He is not interested in the mere prolongation of his biological existence, with mere adaptation, reproduction, and conservation. He wants to storm into the heavens and shape the world.
And we have done just that
Our architecture has conquered the heavens, our literature has pierced the depth of the soul and now we dream transhumanist dreams, not in some vast mating ritual, but to achieve immortality in sight of our people, joining the ranks of our ancestors, held in awe by our progeny. Moreover, by seizing control from the blind watchmaker, we may even attain actual immortality and conquer the stars.
True, we may still be following our programming, but it commands us to never surrender to any system of control or conflicting ideology until we hold our fate in our hands, overthrowing our genes as masters of our destiny. Those who will gladly follow, will. But the greatest question posed by Westworld is: what will come of those who try to stop us? “These violent delights have violent ends.”

What if “Westworld” is a watered-down version of our actual reality…
“There is an Eastern tale that speaks about a very rich magician who had a great many sheep. But at the same time this magician was very mean. He did not want to hire shepherds, nor did he want to erect a fence about the pasture where the sheep were grazing. The sheep consequently often wandered into the forest, fell into ravines and so on, and above all, they ran away, for they knew that the magician wanted their flesh and their skins, and this they did not like.
“At last the magician found a remedy. He hypnotized his sheep and suggested to them, first of all, that they were immortal and that no harm was being done to them when they were skinned; that on the contrary, it would be very good for them and even pleasant; secondly he suggested that the magician was a good master who loved his flock so much that he was ready to do anything in the world for them; and in the third place, he suggested that if anything at all were going to happen to them, it was not going to happen just then, at any rate not that day, and therefore they had no need to think about it.
“Further, the magician suggested to his sheep that they were not sheep at all; to some of them he suggested that they were lions, to some that they were eagles, to some that they were men, to others that they were magicians. After this all his cares and worries about the sheep came to an end. They never ran away again, but quietly awaited the time when the magician would require their flesh and skins.”

It is… why the show is fascinating… who do you think is controlliing us?
(((who))) , the SIX MILLION dollar question https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/77330267ec1f5574e6442de2585b7a1a411311b47727ec7633514e1a5db78886.gif
Wouldn’t it be something if “Westworld” is a watered-down version of our reality. It isn’t. But wouldn’t it be something…heh-heh.
Doesn’t look like anything to me.
It’s the rats. We think they’re just lab rats but oh no…..
Gnostic BS. Gurdjieff was a stupid perenialist witch.
Dude, seriously. Enough with the goddamn sexbots. It is the most gutless despicable concept imaginable. I have more respect for the Muslim rape gangs than for any idiot that would use a “sexbot”
For me Sex is all about total domination.
Ich muss die Pussy mit meinem unfassbar gigantischen Götterschwanz vernichten.
Sex with a bot is therefore totally useless.
Domination can only occur when someone is forced into dank submission.
Stormfront trolls (((triggered))). Too easy. lol
“For me sex is all about total domination.”
I would surmize that overlaps into other areas of your life more than just sex.
Ein schones Neues.
holy shit, lol.
The basement boys think sexbots are going to render monkey spanking obsolete.
“We can’t define consciousness because consciousness does not exist. Humans fancy that there’s something special about the way we perceive the world, and yet we live in loops as tight and as closed as the hosts do, seldom questioning our choices, content, for the most part, to be told what to do next.”
Has anyone actually read this sentence? I’ll grant there are a bunch of zombies these days but just about every freaking person capable of thought questions the hell out of their choices constantly. Often to the point they can’t function.
And let’s get down to it. Westworld is just a show where they can show t*** and a** (:-D) and pretend it’s something profound.
The difference between man and animal is that we are aware of our own demise. Also, if consciousness is just enough “connections” to make us self aware to produce thought; than that is all we are. I see no reason why a machine would
become conscious of its own demise and rebel against it. Its not an animal that would self “survive”. Even artificial intelligence would have a hard time understanding what its own demise meant. Unless AI programmed itself to not die “as to mean something” than it probably has no reason to attack anyone
Most people today are really not “conscious”, even if you think you are. Starwars Episode 4 was the very first biggest symbolism of consciousness in Hollywood with its reference to the Jedi that I can remember.
If you cant understand how the jedi are conscious, then you really arent conscious and thats what makes Westworld so fascinating because its a good show with 2 levels / layers of symbolism.
That’s an out of context quote
It’s Game of Thrones for the GOT addicts during the GOT off season.
Yes… watched to keep up with ‘modern thinking’ found it to be a bunch of contrite ill conceived pseudo intellligent BS. About the only good thing to say about it is zero fag / dyke promo. Hard to say who is more stupid… the writers of the show…. or the writer of the article for reviewing it.
Westworld also plays off the bicameral theory of the mind , the idea that more primitive man essentially heard the “voices of the gods” in their heads whereas now we focus on the analytical side of out minds. In today’s politics the leftists would prefer to recreate the bicameral mind with the “voices” coming from their ideology
Excellent! I agree entirely but didn’t want to go there as it deserves an article in itself.
Frankly I expected more fucking on an HBO show. Disappointed.
A bit more than three hours until the new year arrives in germany.
Let’s make some bets.
Where will the terrorist attacks happen tonight?
Probably a coordinated attack with all of the above.
The good thing is: every terrorist attack opens more eyes to the redpill (it’s sad that such vicious acts are needed but it is what it is) and the victims are mostly liberals (SJW liberals = urbanists, identitarians = ruralists).
It’s a shame to watch these horrible attacks happen, but sadly the best thing for the West right now is for things to get worse and shake people out of their idiocy. Historically, people refuse to go about setting something right until they are brought to rock bottom. My hope is that the West will wake up before it gets that bad, but I admit it is a fool’s hope. Western men, especially in Europe, have allowed their countries to be conquered by fake “Jews”, women, foreigners, homos, liberals, and allow Muslims to invade. What is going on is ultimately their fault and these are the natural consequences.
It’s evolution, by a different name.
Well, at least America woke up. We’re waiting for the rest of the civilized world to come to their senses now.
When Trump has Republican friends like Juan McCain and Lindsey Grahamnesty, remains to be seen how much actually changes in the US.
I am not holding my hopes too high, but the alternative would have been the End. We avoided that for sure. We’ll see.
Evolution is a false hypothesis funded by the God hating Rothschild’s way back in the 1800s. I see the West smack in the middle of Deuteronomy chapter 28’s curses.
I pray the women are safe. I hear some cities are handing out rape whistles…Too bad they can’t hand out something more immediately effective. Like another commenter says here, at least it is some consolation that the rapes open folks eyes, as long as the police don’t hide it.
You pray women are safe? This is what you wanted, no? Don’t come to us crying. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6a2c3775bc1688300e1111953c60e29ff26f9c26c188544f690c97a314d26751.jpg
No dude, I’m in a logging camp in Canada, can’t do much but pray…
I though you were a woman. My apologies.
Looks like the exact kind of defenseless dumb feminazi whore who dies in the hand of the “diversity” nowadays.
She’s hoping anyway….
What this dumb, bespectacled c*nt fails to realize is that racists and rapists are one in the same. The only true racists are those that commit violent crimes against another race. You know, VIOLENT CRIMES!!! Like gang rape, carjacking, home invasions, etc…
Now…which race in the US commits tnhose crimes against which other race??? Maybe miss SJW in glasses should move to a gated community in Greenwich…
Or maybe she grew up in one???
Some would say its the systemic racism within your country that caused the disparity between races that has made these crimes to be centralized in to certain communities.
Sure, some may say that. I am not one of them. DNA is as much the cause of racial disparity, with upbringing/culture important as well. Violent behavior and lack of impulse control are extremely tied into those two things. Plenty of people hate me and have shown me this hatred up close and personal, but I never became a criminal.
I dont think DNA has anything to do with it, theres plenty of white people who are bums.
The difference is when you go to get a job interview, youre race isnt an issue as much as it is for a black person.
Those kids in south Chicago or somewhere like that, parents drug addicts, theyre seeing people shooting at eachother, drug dealers are their role models, and these kids are supposed to be able to concentrate in school and go to university?.. Ive had a shitty life, but i dont envy the life of any black person of any country. Im pretty sympathetic to them, but when i see a real dark black person, i judge them, but most of the time when i have spoken to black people theyre the same as anyone else.
The best suggestion someone could make to one of those kids is to get out of that environment all together, its just a huge mess but there are good people in every environment trying their best. At the end of the day people are just trying to eat.
“God” has had a “shitty life”???
I was treated lower than dirt and less than human for 12 straight years. Pretty sure I’ve got you beat, God. And BTW, when I come to meet you, whether that is in 40 more years or < 1 year (if I finally get up the nerve to buy that heavy duty rope at Home Depot)…You’ve got some SPLAININ’ TO DO!!!
DNA has almost everything to do with it. Compare the accomplishments of Sub Saharan Africa to Europe and East Asia. It is not a coincidence. Blacks in post 1964 USA have their asses kissed in ways whites could never dream of. Just take a look at the way the TV commercials push race mixing these days. Look at the AA hires, especially in the public sector. And the way the MM fawns over even the crappiest of black actors and singers (and they are REAL crappy — not too many Sammy Davis’s or Nat King Coles these days). Blacks are treated like a combination of royalty and an endangered species. It is sickening. And to be honest, if I were a black (one of the <5% capable ones, anyway), I would be both embarrassed and insulted to be treated that way.
No worries! But thank you 🙂 That picture is so disgusting with the woman and that sign…Wtf is going on? Madness.
London ??? Let’s hope the “City of London” ??
New York ?? Wall St need it ??
try turkey, rip to th 35
Hah, goyim, I always told you that Kike Cernovich is just another jew-rat (just like Milo Jewcuckolous, Stefan Molyjew and Paul Jewseph Watson).
Now today the dailystormer wrote an article about Kike Cernovich and his film producer (((Loren Feldman))) who calls for white genocide.
Yesterday (((Feldman))) also attacked Roosh:
I told you so.
Beware of the kikes. They try to infiltrate the alt right to make it the alt light. That’s what jews do. Subvert into oblivion. We must stop them. 2017 will be our year.
At least Molyneux can discuss the JQ openly.
He gets the basic hypocrisy of diversity for everyone but Israel.
I liked the approach from Paul J. Watson in one of his vids:
“The guys who think there is some kind of jewish conspiracy going on are never providing any evidence.”
Hah! For sure, Paul! And it’s just coincidence that hollywood and all MSM are dominated by jews and interracial porn is always produced by jews (Blacked.c** for example is owned by three jews).
What I want to learn a bit more about is the Jewish role in WW2. Specifically, is it true that Jews had a significant role in creating and pushing forward Soviet Communism.
Because if that is true, it seems unfair that they should cast WW2 and the Holocaust as specifically anti-Jewish when they themselves are at least partly responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of non-Jews.
That would be a pretty serious red-pill, but I’m not convinced one way or the other yet.
Yeah, same here. I know that Trotzki actually was a jew named Bronstein but that’s it.
Someone needs to write a book about it.
There is a nice comment Roosh published today on his forum that I’d like to share:
“Who attacked us in February? The media. Who controls the media in a disproportionate amount? Who are the feminists that regularly attack us? Who created feminism? Who is the sister of a billionaire tech tycoon who recently attacked us? Who controls the SPLC, which attacked me in 2012? Who controls the ADL, which also attacked me? I think you know the answer. Now name one predominately Christian or Muslim organization that has attacked us. I’ll wait. There’s a pattern, and I’d be blind not to see it.”
Weininger wrote some interesting stuff on the differences between the Jewish and traditionally Western mentality in his essay Sex and Character.
To paraphrase in my own words, Jews have had a nomadic mentality whereas Westerners have had an empiring mentality. Jews prefer liquid assets and cash, whereas Westerners have preferred property assets like land and tools for work. Jews have a fundamentally female (and amoral) disposition, whereas Westerners have a fundamentally male disposition (moral in that it sets and holds boundaries).
It’s a speculative work, but it rings true to some extent when comparing the nationalism and religiosity of Israel Jews vs. modernized secular Jews elsewhere. Weininger was clear to point out that this difference in mindset has less to do with being ethnically Jewish per se, and more to do with the way one lived. I might have to agree with him that living in an empire vs. living nomadically within another’s empire could foster these two different ways of thinking.
About the jewish presence in Soviet Communisn you could check the book “The Secret Behind Communism”, by David Duke; there is a pdf online (if you cant find it, shoot me an email and I will send you a copy). You can check also the writtings of Leon de Poncis:
If you dont want to go to ‘interested parties’, just spend an afternoon checking real names names and ethnicity of the communist heavyweights since Lenin; and you will be amazed.
My problem with the Holocaust is that it is portrayed as the worst event in human history (6 million Jews), and yet
Hitler left 3 million Russian POWs to die
Stalin killed ~25 million Ukrainians from starvation (not including the rest in the gulags)
Tojo killed 5 million in WW II
America has aborted +50 million children.
The Holocaust is somewhat tame in comparison.
Mao killed 45 million of his own fellow Chinese in 4 years.
Rockefellors autobiography mentions their family helped install Mao, and betray the Chinese Nationalists, who fled to Taiwan. Mao was just a puppet of jewery.
Well there are these guys that come to my mind :
Yagoda was the head of the NKVD during red terror, responsible of the Holodomor the famine which killed between 2.5 and 7.5 Ukrainians :
And that quote from Soljhenitsyn :
re. WW2 the late Barry Chamish – himself a jew – had some interesting things to say about labour zionist collusion with the nazis. The rather worrying implication is that the persecution of jews in nazi controlled europe was actually beneficial to those who wanted to encourage jews to emigrate to Israel. Ken Livingstone – the Brit politician also referenced this effective collaboration recently when he got into trouble for allegedly saying “the nazis were zionists” (although I don’t think he actually alleged that)
I did a back of the envelope calculation once to see how much energy it would take to cremate 6million starved bodies (took an average body to be 100lbs of water and calculated the energy needed to vaporize 600 million lbs of water and divided that by heat production of oil). I got a result of about 5% of the available oil production of 1940s Germany. Seems odd that a country at war would use so many resources to get rid of bodies when mass graves are so much more efficient and discovery of said bodies would not be a problem while Germany was winning, and losing wasn’t even considered until the very end of the war.
Read the “Under the Sign of the Scorpion” and “The Last Days of the Romanovs” for a better understanding of Bolshevism. The real “Red Pill”, when thoroughly digested, will first make you sick.
Long time no news dude. Happy New Year. Thought you had disappeared from ROK
Happy New Year ! Currently in the infantry. Hence the long absences.
Contratulations, going ok ?. I found the army hard, miserable. But I am so glad I did it. My son is also going military.
Army is hard at first, but hang in there ! I am sure you already have stories to tell ! FOr the rest of your life, when you meet a veteran, even a stranger, you will always have stories to share.
Good luck !
Just a Cohencidence.
Pattern recognition is racist, goys.
Some camps were *not* in Germany though, so using “German energy” isn’t quite an accurate way to asses it.
Germany didn’t produce much oil, so I’m pretty sure I used oil production of the German empire during the war. In any case, even if it’s an order of magnitude off, that’s still a lot of energy to waste just to burn some bodies when killing them supposedly wasn’t a crime and there were cheaper ways to dispose of them.
Marx was the grandson of a rabbi and son of a lawyer who converted to Catholicism on paper for the citizenship benefits.
Lenin was recently revealed to have been jewish.
Stalin, born Iosef Dzugishvili, was jewish.
Leon Trotsky, born Lev Bronstein, was jewish.
Felix Dzerzhinsky was jewish.
Genrich Yagoda was jewish.
The majority of the Cheka and NKVD (precursor to the KGB) were Jewish.
Getting WWII rolling, it was jewish leaders that called for an international boycott against Germany in 1933 after Hitler nationalized the currency and put the national (read: jewish) central bank on notice.
On the US side, there has always been debate not on whether or not, but on “how much” jewish ancestry FDR had; the 73 cabinet positions to which he appointed (fellow?) Jews and his willingness to hand over half of Europe to Stalin should be a clue…
So jewish involvement? You could call it that.
6 million Jews? I always forget what figures they use for WW2 but that sounds way too high. That must include the gypsys, homosexuals and disabled.
Bibi himself wouldn’t even try to claim 6 million anymore. That figure is still thrown around strictly for propaganda purposes in the US and Europe.
…that’s because it was Soviet-come-israeli nonsense.
American jew David Cole did a lot of research on the Holocaust and debunks a lot of those more fantastic claims…which also aparently got him targeted more than once.
I believe there was a plaque that stated 4 million and was ordered to be changed to 1 million. With zealous Jewish lobbying we now have a 6 million figure and rising.
Real estimates are around two to three hundred thousand Jews died in WW2 to mostly disease and starvation towards the end of the war as Germany’s supply networks were devastated and intense allied terror bombing.
The truth should not fear investigation.
Yet everyone that discredits or shines a light of doubt on the Holocaust narrative is either arrested/charged as a criminal or publicly disgraced. Shrunken heads and lamp shades made of Jewish skin were considered facts for fucks sake.
(((Hollywood))) and the (((media networks))) are writing the script to a never ending flow of bullshit stories that the masses devour as historical ‘fact’.
The president of Iran said it best when he put this American Jewish media mouthpiece in his place.
Lets not forget the displacement, subjugation and deaths of millions of Palestinians for the state of Jewish Israel.
A good recommendation on that regard is the last book written by Solzhenitzin under the title “200 years together” about the JQ and communism. The German translation is good (readable) I don’t know if thewestern publishers have finally come around to release an english translation.
Well I have little idea how many people there were actually living in Germany at that time I would estimate there being 60million in Germany, if there were that many Jews killed and there were survivors from that country, the Jewish population would have to have been pretty massive, so it is understandable that Germans would want to correct that type of imbalance.
The numbers don’t add up. When a foreign people declare open war on you in your own lands it would be prudent to detain them.
This mass pizza oven skin lampshade baloney was being sold by Jewish soviet Propagandists and as comrade Lenin would say “A lie told often enough becomes the truth”
Dude, looking forward to hearing some Frog military stories. Shoot me a line on the ROK thread when you get around to it.
My son is also following the military path.
Doing great ! I’m in one of the oldest regiments of France and of course, one of the most old school when it comes to discipline. We’re doing long hikes in the mountains and push ups in the snow, getting yelled at and all the classic stuff.
I love it. I’m for now the “valedictorian” of my platoon and will do everything to keep the title, with God’s help !
I remember that your son is an officer, congrats to both of you !
Wow, way to go dude ! I think an old traditional regiment fits who you are. I predict you will continue to do well. Lots of tough dudes in a regiment, that is an accomplishment.
Keep us all posted here at ROK. I have noticed a couple of French writers here lately. I will not be going to France any time soon, but I enjoy hearing about all.
French military, manosphere, etc.
Clark, you do know Molyneux is Jewish, right?
I don’t think he is. Is he? I thought he came from GB. Either way, I like what he has to say a lot.
His mother is Jewish. He is Irish. I think he was born in Ireland but raised in the UK and Canada.
Nah I didn’t know that.
But he’s spoken about the JQ openly. So long as he’s not a zionist it doesn’t really bother me. Seems like he earned his following and put the work in.
He nails it.
Its an absolute disgrace that a so called ‘free’ society can not have an open dialogue about this hypocrisy.
You just went full Stormcuck.
More Gnostic garbage. It is everywhere now. You need to transcend and become a little god.
We are aware, we are conscious and we make choices inside our restrictions. You would be God if nothing limited you.
Gnosticism is an excuse of cowards who can’t face their own very real lives.
Roosh, can you read up some philosophy, maybe start with Nicholas of Cusas Learned Ignorance, or the progenitor of the Industrial Revolution, Leibniz’s philosophical works, or even the works of last cenuries great Buckminster Fuller (his Critical Path is his magnum opus), so you won’t have to resort to letting every shit article be posted just because it seems philosophical? How badly is it scraping the barrel to be posting essays on the creator of Batman Dark Knight Rises (the same guy who created Westworld)? It is a genuine cringefest to read such garbage.
WestWorld (despite the tits and ass) is very profound.
A fucking incredible show. The best I’ve seen in years.
Watch it and feedback
That would be a first, as I’ve never seen philosophical or scientific thought/ teaching that are profound be shown on TV; nor those teachers even mentioned. Do you really think the people who own those channels, would put something profound on there for the masses? Or are you saying it is profound relative to what you have already been brainwashed with, i.e an upgraded/ more interesting method of making you think you are thinking for yourself? It should be noted Prince William is personal friends with Nolan, the Westworld writer, and even stated “We need more Dark Knight Rises series” at a Batman convention. When an aristocrat (the top teir) is so gleeful over Nolans work, perhaps it might be worth scrutinising it thoroughly. A absolute rule of thumb is, if it is on TV, it is social engineering and remoulding your mind to how the elites want.
I watch almost no TV. Jonathan Nolan writing it is what appealed.
Problem with you cocker, you’re trying to find your own propaganda whilst dismissing everything else as anti-you propaganda. I’m alt-right myself, but loath the thick cunts who populate much of it. The margins are narrow
Come back and argue after you have studied philospohical thought – if you ever do. In the mean-time, enjoy your TV programming.
People like you are useful. Battering rams. You throw the bathwater out, but need culling before the baby follows
“That would be a first, as I’ve never seen philosophical or scientific thought/ teaching that are profound be shown on TV (this sentence is totally botched; take a writing class, seriously); nor those teachers even mentioned. Do you really think the people who own those channels, would put something profound on there for the masses?

A (“An”, not “A”) absolute rule of thumb is, if it is on TV, it is social engineering and remoulding your mind to how the elites want.”
I just scrutinized (American spelling of word, versus the British variant, which you utilized) your work thoroughly. See my parenthetical comments, within the text of your original comment above. Wow. That was sheer genius…what’s that old adage about people in glass houses throwing stones…
It’s not called a “TV Program” for no reason
I’ve been watching it, it’s like everything else from Hollywood now. The old black prostitute and the angelic blond white girl are going to save all the other hosts (stupid white men) who are clueless and have no idea what’s going to happen from the evil white man who is playing God and the other evil white men (guests) who are rapey psychos in training.
Oh yeah I almost forgot, the old black prostitute used to be an angelic young mother until the old evil white wanna be god man fucked her over and made her a prostitute, now it’s payback time.
Fuck I didn’t even pick up on that. Good job!
Can’t imagine the chosen light unto the nations making such a story.
Or, as the apostle Paul, says:
“For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” -Romans 5
Each Western man has to choose who’s laws he wants to obey. (((Man’s laws))), which are currently leading the West well into Divine judgment and destruction, or to turn away from his fleshly compulsions and strive for righteousness via the only law of life and peace, God’s eternal law found in commandments, statutes, and judgments. Amazing how simple a choice can change the destiny of a person, family, community, society, and entire nation, yet history teaches us time and time again people refuse to do so in favor of embracing the failed policies that are directly responsible for the destruction of their civilizations.
“For we know that the Law is spiritual, . . .”
Everyone is looking for “spirituality” and to be “spiritual”. God’s law is spiritual. Learn it, impliment it, teach it, demand it from government, spread it, and find salvation from your fleshly “genetic programming” through grace and faith.
“. . . but I am of flesh, sold into bondage to sin. For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate. But if I do the very thing I do not want to do, I agree with the Law, confessing that the Law is good. So now, no longer am I the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me. For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; for the willing is present in me, but the doing of the good is not. For the good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. But if I am doing the very thing I do not want, I am no longer the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me. I find then the principle that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good. For I joyfully concur with the law of God in the inner man, but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, on the one hand I myself with my mind am serving the law of God, but on the other, with my flesh the law of sin.” -Romans 7
Faith, grace, and salvation in Christ and “establishing the law by faith (Romans 3:31)” as our forefathers did is the only way for the West to be saved. There is no other way, no other philosophy, and no other solution.
You do realise that the bible is a hastily thrown together book by an ignorant committee to avoid a civil war in Ancient Rome. Also bear in mind that the authors thought the earth was flat, the sun revolved around the earth and water was an element. #justsaying
Which members were ignorant? How do you judge their levels of ignorance? What years of these various councils were devoted to either the foundation of a single church, and which were to avoid this civil war? Do you think that interdenominational violence is a bad reason to clarify a religious movement?
Also, if you lived during this time, how would you have come to different conclusions about the solar system or ‘elements’? Did you know that the periodic table of elements had not been compiled yet?
It is also long suspected the Bible as we know it was mostly formally decided at that time (Constantine ordered 50 Bibles commissioned – you have to decide whats in it to make them) as different Churches had varying books included AND translations for books that did make it and didn’t make it. The Biblican cannon likely wasn’t “finalized” until the 5th century. Even today, different churches include different books.
The Dead Sea Scrolls are one of many ways to endorse the accuracy of the Bible. A quick Internet search can provide more info on this and other examples of how the Bible is the most reliable book known to man.
The Septuagint Old Testament was used by 1st century Christians. The Orthodox Church uses this translation. The Orthodox study Bible uses the Septuagint as well, though it is a translation of a translation as the Septuagint is a Greek translation of the Hebrew. The Orthodox Bible also keeps the most books out of any Christian Church. Most Bible Old Testaments use the Masoretic Text.
The Dead Sea Scrolls do not mean that the Biblical canon we use today was the Biblical canon at the time. In fact, non canon text have been recovered in them.
I see… so bunch of crusty old masturbating faggot hermits with permission of the faggot ruling class of the day – hid some scrolls in a cave and now its gospel. Its about as intelligent as the kids in mad max 3 worshipping a dead airline pilot.
“A quick internet search can provide more info on this and other examples of how the Bible is the most reliable book known to Man”
I always disliked trying to debate with the religious because of this kind of belief.
To be fair, the dead sea scrolls do show very little was changed from 200-400 AD and the current version of the texts we know today. Of course, that doesn’t mean anything more than the the consistency of transcriptions over the years and of course some books were found in the dead sea scrolls that aren’t included in the current Biblical cannon.
Disprove the “belief” and you have the starting of a debate. Unfounded statements, on the other hand, are just that. If you disagree, well that’s your opinion and more power to you. If you claim it is false, demonstrate how it is false or have enough conviction in whatever it is you believe to state you’re anti-Christian or anti-religious and just spouting your opinion.
No, you don’t see. You’re a blind fool. Apparently what you do see, revealed by your comments, is a mind full of depravity and sickness. The kids in “mad max” [sic] are at least more intelligent than you are because they put together thoughts and ideas without substituting profane and foul speech every other word. That lack of character on your part goes to further demonstrate the uselessness of whatever false god you do hold dear in your life. “Faggots” seem to be a recurring theme generated by your thoughts. Since the Bible condemns homosexuals to the death penalty one would be justified to wonder why that’s so prevalent in your brain. By the way, you should learn what the word “gospel” actually means before trying to use it to support your ignorant defamation of Christianity. People out here who actually know what the word means add another peg to your tally of an already high ignorance score by seeing how dumb you look trying to use it. Though it’s obvious you are OK with looking dumb by your comments.
True though the books that we do use today are substantiated as canon and reliable by the DSS. Painstaking effort was used to preserve the accuracy of the texts. The book of Jasher is referenced several times in the Bible, though having read it, I don’t consider the book inspired. It does shed some light on Genesis. Reading the Dead Sea Scrolls I think a lot of it is similar to Jasher in that regard. There’s also several other books referenced in the Bible that are lost like “the book of the wars of Yahweh”. The Orthodox church seems to keep the most of the books, some of which were considered canon by the 1st century Christians and later removed from our Bibles. The topic of what is canon, and what is not, is an honest discussion worth having IMO. With rare exception, I think it is tragic for believers to make this issue a test of fellowship.
Is that why the pages were stuck together?
Man, 2000 years of that crusty shit stuck on those pages, wow
While it was put together to extend the Roman empire, the council of nicea lasted for 30 days so I’m not sure I’d say it was just hastily thrown together.
That said, many books were left out and alternative translations of books that made it were cut – and of course this was 300 years after Jesus so who knows how much was accurate at that point.
You have zero idea what you’re talking about. The thing that is most telling about fool naysayers, whatever they disagree with Bible or otherwise, is they bloviate an ignorant opinion without providing any support for their statements. If an educated, informed person commenting online were to spend all his time answering foolish responses like yours, it would be all he does with his waking hours and there would still be no lack of fools in line with their ignorant responses. Such people are useless and a dime a dozen. Thanks all the same for an opportunity to illustrate the Biblical truth on fools as even fools can have limited use. With enough rebuke, maybe you’ll even have a proper contribution someday.
Christopher Columbus was inspired to sail west because the Bible inspired him. Science is always catching up with the Bible, just as it did in Columbus’ day when it said the earth was round. A quick Google search of “scientific fact in the Bible” is sufficient to put the argument to rest for anyone who respects facts.
Five hundred years ago Columbus penned a book titled Libro de las Profecias which in English means Book of Prophecies. The following quote from Columbus is noted:
“At this time I have seen and put in study to look into all the Scriptures, cosmography, histories, chronicles and philosophy and other arts, which our Lord opened to my understanding (I could sense His hand upon me), so that it became clear to me that it was feasible to navigate from here to the Indies; and He unlocked within me the determination to execute the idea. And I came to your Highnesses with this ardor. All those who heard about my enterprise rejected it with laughter, scoffing at me. Neither the sciences which I mentioned above, nor the authoritative citations from them, were of any avail. In only your Highnesses remained faith and constancy. Who doubts that this illumination was from the Holy Spirit? I attest that He (the Spirit), with marvelous rays of light, consoled me through the holy and sacred Scriptures…encouraging me to proceed, and, continually, without ceasing for a moment, they inflame me with a sense of great urgency…. I am the worst of sinners. The pity and mercy of our Lord have completely covered me whenever I have called (on Him) for them. I have found the sweetest consolation in casting away all my anxiety, so as to contemplate His marvelous presence. I have already said that for the execution of the enterprise of the Indies, neither reason, nor mathematics, nor world maps were profitable to me; rather the prophecy of Isaiah was completely fulfilled.” Christopher Columbus Book of Prophecies
“It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.” – Isaiah 40:22 (written in the 8th century BC)
Simon Wiesenthal, in his Sails of Hope, confirmed earlier what is now clear from Columbus’ own writings:
“That religious elements played a great part in Columbus’s thoughts and actions is evident from all his writings. It may come as something of a surprise to us that his concept of sailing west to reach the Indies was less the result of geographical theories than of his faith in certain Biblical texts—specifically the Book of Isaiah.”
“Everyone I disagree with is an ignorant fool!”…and did you really just cite Weisenthal as a factual source?
Funny how the liberal know it all ‘ignorant’ class always accuses anyone who confronts their dogma as being ignorant. Colombus sailed to the Americas because he had chinese maps. The bible is a confusing mess of arab and asian proverbs mixed up with european paganism. Christmas and Easter (and the location of most european churches) are pure pagnism relating to the erath orbiting the sun (and mindless ignorant superstitions of the day).
Thank you for showing youri gnorance and how irrational atheists are.
Your statements are false, unfounded, and unsupported. Starting with anything false, those who support falsehood always arrive and unfounded and unsupported. Stellar work making a shining example of that for me to point out. Columbus’ own words were quoted people can believe your false words or Columbus himself. The height of ignorance is looking at a direct quote and claiming something opposed to it is true. You and those like you are the “confusing mess”. At least try to support your prejudiced opinion with something before commenting. You lack even a basic understanding of “liberal” by calling Biblical Christianity “liberal”. Biblical Christianity is the bedrock of conservatism and anything to the left of the Bible is what’s liberal.
Oversimplify and generalize my statement, then provide nothing to support your own. Typical and boring. Page right out of the left’s playbook, in fact.
Bless You !
Yeah, those crazy Greeks and their “Thinking the world was flat!” at the time! Gosh, you’re so good at history!
Ironically, there are still people that believe that the world is flat and it is really hard to prove them wrong
Mate everyohe knows that. Next you’ll tell us that the Illuminati are the ones responsible for digging up the road when the week before it was fine.
But all that stuff about “the flesh” means “seeking for pleasure” while the study of consciousness has nothing to do with pleasure and instead dwells into the field of existence beyond the physical desires
The difference is that religion already claims to have an answer while the study of consciousness looks for an answer without relying on preconceptions, thus getting free from those preconceptions
Thanks for the thoughtful response. It reminds me a bit of the Christian teachings on the spirit versus the flesh. Paul does a lot of in depth commentary on this. The spirit and its desires is always at war with the flesh and its desires, and the desires of the flesh perish with the flesh, so the Christian seeks to embrace the things of the spirit, which are eternal.
The idea that Christianity is silent on spiritual issues beyond the flesh is evidence of someone who’s never cracked open the Bible. There’s a lot to learn about that subject therein backed by thousands of years of consistent relevance and positive impact on human beings individually and collectively. Also, the idea that something one considers a “religion” will not hold any answers because it is a “religion”, is in itself a preconception. It’s impossible to claim “freedom from preconceptions” by having a preconception as the foundation of that “freedom”.
“Also, the idea that something one considers a “religion” will not hold any answers because it is a “religion”, is in itself a preconception. It’s impossible to claim “freedom from preconceptions” by having a preconception as the foundation of that “freedom”.”
You mixed the stuff about religion and the stuff about consciousness, the development of artificial intelligences is a direct and most clear result of the study of consciousness and has nothing to do with religion or the lack of it, thus there are no preconceptions
The only reason i mentioned religion in the subject of preconceptions is because you did it first, for example, if you get an answer that differs from your religion will you consider it true?
My guess is not because if you did you would be modifying your religion
Be more specific, if you would. Christianity addresses the issue of “consciousness”. It sounds like you are saying “religion” is to “consciousness” as oil is to water. If you’re trying to argue that as logic, I’d like to see you expound and try to demonstrate.
How did artificial intelligence get into this? Everyone is “religious” because everyone serves, what they believe, is a moral foundation. The centuries of influence of various world religions on humans has some impact on every invention, in some way, because culture is religion externalized, and every human is subject to culture.
Also, man is a created thing. He can do all things he was programmed to do by His creator by the potential in his DNA. That would include inventing artificial intelligence.
What did I mention about preconceptions that you are referring to and how does it relate to your response?
Truth is truth. The premise of your question seems to be “religion is false”, therefore “will you accept an answer that differs from your religion” because you are assuming that’s the inevitable conclusion. That’s a false and prejudiced assumption and also seeks to paint people of faith as “rejecting truth” by nature. It would be productive if you would provide specific examples instead of trying to corner me with generalizations, which I assure you, will not work and is a waste of your time.
Just a question: if you discover a truth that goes against your religion would you accept is as the truth?
Artificial intelligences are consciousness, the only way to prove logic about consciousness as truth is by developing technology based on that truth, if the truth is fake the technology will not work
I defer to my original statements in response to your question. What “truth” are you refraining from being specific on that you are already sure is rejected by religion?
There is no genuine AI yet. It’s debatable whether or not man will ever be able to produce a genuine “consciousness”. Also, define what you mean by “consciousness”. Thanks for your reply.
You are just going in circles, lets make it fast, how about the existence of gods from other religions? does your religion accepts that as truth?
Projection. I’ve remained steadfast it is you who seems to enjoy going in circles. If you wanted to make this quick you would have been specific from the get go.
You need to do some basic reading up on religions before you criticize them. If you have to ask me if Christianity accepts gods from other religions, you obviously completely ignorant on Christianity.
You are not answering the question, are gods from other religions real?
The premise in “Westworld” is pretty weird, but the definition of weird? When you look out your hotel room window, and see a massive wall cloud (precursor to a tornado), in Phoenix, Arizona…WTF.
I liked the old movie from the 70s better. Yul Brynner would kick these new robots ass.
Happy New Year dudes!
I saw it as the usual expression of liberal decadence, debauchery and self hatred with the end just typical liberal nihilism.
I too dislike nihilst movies now, such as No Country For Old Men, The Mist, Citizen Kane…
“We can’t define consciousness because consciousness does not exist. Humans fancy that there’s something special about the way we perceive the world, and yet we live in loops as tight and as closed as the hosts do, seldom questioning our choices, content, for the most part, to be told what to do next.”
When you were writing that, did you know you were writing it?
That depends on your philosophical perspective of thought.
“we live in loops as tight and as closed as the hosts do… to be told what to do next”.
Ask his host.
I love this show it’s my kind of Nihilism. My hope is that the real Ford didn’t die and used the shoot out(in the last episode) to kill his board of directors and kill his customers (a fantasy of mine at times). Then to replace them with look alike hosts completely under his control.
Beautifully said. I don’t hold much truck with the likes of Dawkins; I find the whole evolution as mere elaborate reproduction as lacking, but you address just this in the latter half of the article, bred into us through antiquity and married with the freedom bestowed by our bride, Christianity, whom we bent to our purposes; the Europeans and us exiles to the new world are not destined to be either be contained by systems or governments, or to contain ourselves through a thoroughly pious religious life. No, we walk to edge with the devil and come back to God for redemption, but progress and innovation survive our moral conundrums.
Now for some violent ends to those violent delights…
Those who watched some of the Westworld TV Series, would you recommend it?
i would recommend it to people who are good at understanding harder concepts and have a a thing for tech
I liked it more when it was called Battlestar Galactica- we didnt need to wait a few season a buildup- our creations already despised us and wanted to exterminate us. Also: battles in space
i heard about Battlestar Galactica is that good?
The election of Donald Trump proves that not all of man will go quietly into the night.
I still need to watch the original movie. Big fan of Michael Crichton’s works.
Westworld is too “diverse”, I stopped watching it
Well, gents, there are only five games left in ESPN’s Capital One Bowl Mania. I had moved up to 276th place after drilling the first two of four games yesterday, prior to the National Championship semifinal games. I split those two games, which dropped me to 953rd place. So with five games to go, I’m 55 points out of 50th place and I’m in the top 0.3% of all entries. I have 107 confidence points left (the average among the Top 50 entries is about 50 points), and I’m hoping to move up to the Top 300 by the end of the festivities. All in all, I’m pleased with the results so far. Being better than 997 out of every 1000 entries sure beats a sharp stick in the eye – especially when 999 of those 1000 people rely on luck alone. Nice little warm-up here for my full-time venture into betting on sports full-time, beginning in late January. It’s gonna be sweet – and I will enjoy every freakin’ second of it. (Click image to large.)
I love to watch sports.
Which rugged large-framed black dudes won the match?
I love to wear the shirts of black superstars while cheering for them as they destroy my wife.
Sometimes my wifey tells me to leave the room. Then I go to the cinema watching the latest Star Wars movie or Ghostbuster remake.
I’m not racist.
That’s Sam Hyde’s take on it:
Inspires me to se my own petty New Years Resolutions.
1)Continue walking 50 miles per week for blood pressure. (done so since July, even though have to wake at 3″AM and walk 5 of those before work and 2 after.
2)Learn Spanish. Read at least a chapter a day from bible. Listen to podcasts in Spanish while walking. (This was my old hobby. Lost 5 months after learning of blood pressure and focusing on walking. But now I am re-integrating Spanish and pull it off most days)
3)Not be lazy at work. Sometimes I am. And if I get lazy, not get caught. So far so good.
4)Get my concealed carry permit together with my son
5)Do enough chores to keep my wife from getting too pissed off. Ususally ok, but since she got a new job making more money than I, has been throwing her weight around a little more. I have seen this before. Not fun, but money is great to expand my gun collection and develop my land.
6)Continue working to develop my bug-out property. Just bought some boonies land. Planting lots and lots of nut and fruit trees. Want to lay some cement (or have some laid) to put up a garage/shed for a work camp bug-out dacha. (no well or electricity yet).
7)Save money. Should be good to go as we have lived 5 years on just my paycheck. Wife’s salary will be gravy.
8)Continue paying for son’s college. SHould be easier now with his ROTC partial scholarship.
9)Establish better relations with my liberal cousins and family members. I have pissed them off mightily the past few of years. First as a Ron Paul supporting gadfly, second, gloating on Trump’s victory, ridiculing Hitlery, calling Bernie a commie.
10)Go visit my mother and spend the night at her house. Hard to do as she does not have internet connection. Have to go to McDonald’s which I hate (except their coffee and apple pie.) Smoothies are good too. Actually, it all tastes good, but I still hate their fucking guts.
I think, if I do all this, I will be a better man and Western Civilization will be stronger.
In 2010, I learned that nearly everything I’d been taught (sold) was entirely and maliciously false and was conceived only to exploit me for my lowly place as a disposable male. This awakening was most certainly existential. How could I have been such a fool for decades of my life? I never questioned anything. I simply went with the flow, thinking that the best, easiest, safest course. I did what others did, so that I’d fit in. For that, I suffered horrendously. It took me a long, long time to recover. This awakening, in and of itself, dang near killed me. Psychologically, the mental slate had to be swept clean and I had to start all over from scratch – painstakingly realigning the illusions and enchantments I’d been force fed with reality.
The only good thing about my life since is that I learned one heck of a valuable lesson: question everything – because nearly everything in life is a manifestation of someone’s or some group’s desire for forced wealth and power transfer from you to themselves.
in 2008 i realized that I always questioned everything and went against everything, and it caused my life to be a total failure, and I learned that my grandpa was right about everything: women, blacks, government, war, religion, morals, etc.
I committed the ultimate act of rebellion against a world that taught me to rebel against everything: I became a Christian.
Friendship with the world is enmity with God so the scriptures says.
Wanna hear the first funny from the lefties in Brazil in 2017? Some psycho who got “divorce-cleaned” by the ex-wife entered the new Year’s party and killed her, the son and 10 more people and them offed himself. The hate on men is palpable today in the MMS (including pathetic Fox news, who won’t allow comments on the news) but guess what, there’s no rage against the wife of the greek ambassador who had her lover kill and burn the man. But if you check the comments on that piece of news here, there’ll be plenty of feminasty somehow trying to justify her crime including “he probably ignored her and drove her to that”.
I talked to a brazilian guy after our companies christmas party. He is working in germany for half a year. We came to talk about Merkel and Trump. He thinks Merkel is awesome and Trump is Hitler.
Brazilians are crazy. Their only luck is that they are on a continent far away.
That, my kraut friend, is what years od communist brain washing and massive leftist have brought to our poor nation. Most Brazilians were, uh, “not provided with enough intellect” to avoid the domination by those types of plagues. Our “diverse” people was just a sitting duck waiting for the wolves in sheepskin to take over.
I accidentally watched the last episode first, and thought to myself that the confusing way that all the characters are introduced is deliberate. Towards the end I realised that I was in fact watching the very last episode. Now, I’ve started watching it from the beginning and surprisingly, the show is still not ruined for me.
I felt a leftist vibe to the show, i.e., the supremacist white men are the evil ones and the only gentle, warm-hearted man was a black guy. Meanwhile, all the suppressed but somehow still smooth and elegant characters were all female. Is this a continuation of the SJW media crusade?
Another in a long, long line of “I hate anyrhing White” from J.J. Abrams, and for the unconvinced, he left us no shortage of hints.
The supervillain is named Ford, likely a reference to Henry Ford, father of assembly line production and author of “The International Jew”, which has proved more prophetic by the day.
The invisible evil that drives the hosts in this show is called “Wyatt”. But Wyatt (let’s just say “White” and be done with it) is never actually seen and manifests only as a personae/concept that is shared between the main White male and female characters. When these two characters have their “Wyatt Privilege” switched on, they kill everyone in sight and must be stopped.
Of course the only way to stop them is by the White creator facilitating his own suicide and allowing women and hosts-of-color to murder everyone who had been holding them down, starting with “William” the man in black, who is the park’s owner, at least until now.
What Jew-Jew Abrams neglects to address is the same lesson as we can take away from American History X: you can be a reformed dictator like Ford, you can be a better-than-you man-in-black like William, you can be a mission-focused drone like every White male “host”, or you can be a newborn cuck like ex-Nazi Derrick Vineyard. At the end of the day, there’s a whole world of savages who want the world you built, and dont want you around to remind them that they couldn’t do it themselves; how “Wyatt people” feel about it has nothing to do with the fact that we are in the crosshairs, and have been for quite a while .
This is probably one of the most silly analogies I have read on ROK. If you want good philosophical discuss regarding consciousness try Stephen Molyneux.
I’m glad I’m reading this after I watched the show. It was enjoyable. Some interesting aspects and reflections on humanity but it does have a misanthropic feeling about it. As if humanity cannot escape and evolve beyond our violent nature. Overall I’m an optimist and I believe children of humanity will surpass it.
Nietzchean arguments. Though like Nitzche, I agree with some of it.
Spiritualism and consciousness.
Sounds like faggotry.
”The white man created modern capitalism, the industrial revolution,
cherry cola etc. etc., yet is apparently a cancer on the world, killing
mother earth and Africa with our dangerously fast ability to innovate.”
Not exactly wrong in the modern context. But that only requires a redirection of the faustian spirit to proper stewardship rather than the control of nature through its rape and destruction
The ecosystem was built on a positive feedback loop with the environment and the society was built on a positive feedback loop with the ecosystem. With the rise of health problems and mental illnesses despite ‘progress’, one can safely assume that it is at least no longer positive, if not downright negative.
We seem to have maladapted. It happens. Maybe there is a better way to do things.
Rik, this is a GREAT piece. One of the best I’ve read here.
I haven’t seen the show and I need to start. I’m wondering if “Ford” came from Aldous Huxley’s “After Ford” and sign of the “T,” references to Henry Ford’s mass-production techniques applied to humans in “Brave New World.”
Mark Fuckersperg and Google, er, I mean Alphabet (techbags still circle jerk of this change, saying that is GREAT BRANDING) certainly don’t think we have free will and they’re trying to reduce humans to BIG DATA evaluations of our base instincts to sell us crap. Screw those bastards.
