This is something I’ve noticed in the course of my own predictions. Anytime I predict that some cultural trend is about to happen, I later realize it’s already been happening…for years. But Roissy has always had his finger on the pulse of the nation, whereas I’ve only had a couple years’ practice:
1. The Cathedral suppression of truth will intensify as realization spreads among the true believers in the ranks that everything they’ve believed is a lie.
2. The ruling elite who are cynically aware of the truth but can’t escape their emotional attachment to their ideology or to status whoring on the backs of the wrong kinds of white people will encourage the lying as a tool of psychological and political warfare.
3. Slander, spying and sanitization will become the default actions of the liberal gatekeepers of discourse gaping ineffectually into the teeth of intractable social problems caused primarily by their own ideas and preferred policies.
Good stuff. Number one began for truly with the rise of the web 2.0 and the elites perfected their chokehold on social media/networking/ideological mongering sometime around 2005-2006, for which Obama was a proof of concept.
Number two, proofs of concept: Richwine, Watson, Nyborg. First they came for the creationists, and I said nothing. This has been going on for a long time, but it came to perfection right around the time Joseph Farah started harping about Obama’s birth certificate. (They never got around to offing him, just the record-keepers in Hawaii. I kinda envy them their tactical playbooks.)
Do your own for number three, I’m bored. The gatekeepers can be summed up as media, entertainment, and academia, or New York, Los Angeles, and Cambridge (Massachusetts), respectively. Big Data is kinda like their new younger brother, and is well-described by Salt Lake City. New Puritania (Ctrl-F for “Mormon” in the article).
