On Pokemon

Some mood music:

Thesis: Pokemon is a pure aesthetic expression of the will-to-power ethos.

The trainer seeks glory via the audacity of his vision. Untermenschen (Pokemon) are trained and bred for purpose. They are subhuman and their speech is only emotive, lacking semantic content. Why is it funny to compare Pokemon to dogfighting? Because it’s true. Dogfighting and other such blood sports are favored pastimes of the criminal class because the will-to-power ethos is the philosophy of gangsters.

This has enormous significance to us in the modern day. Solzhenitsyn described this psychology as it manifested in the criminal elements which the Soviets allowed to prey upon the law-abiding in Communist Russia:

1. I want to live and enjoy myself; and f–. the rest!
• 2. Whoever is the strongest is right!
3. If they aren’t beating you, then don’t lie down and
ask for it. (In other words: As long as they’re beating up
someone else, don’t stick up for the ones being beaten.. Wait
your own turn.}

Alexander Solzhenitsyn
The Gulag Archipelago, vol 2 (pg. 428)

This is particularly notable because it is also the root of fascism, which is on the rise in response to the failures of socialism. Just another turn of the wheel, a “revolution” if you will.

There are two sides of fascism, the planners (trainers) and the people (Pokemon). They are united in their pursuit of the feeling of greater personal empowerment via participation in a larger system. The difference is that planners believe they are justified by giving orders, and the people believe they are justified by following orders. The impression of goose stepping is the same as the feeling of being an atom in a wrecking ball.

I don’t think the rising popularity of Pokemon is an accident, but rather a subliminal awareness within Generation Z that they will be the “people” in this arrangement, living beneath a fascist regime.

Children accepted the Archipelago with the divine impressionability of childhood. And in a few days children became beasts there! And the worst kind of beasts, with no ethical concepts whatever (looking into the calm and enormous eyes of a horse or caressing the flattened ears of a guilty dog, how can you deny that they have ethics?). The kid masters the truth: If other teeth are weaker than your own, then tear the piece away from them. It belongs to you!

Ibid. (pg. 452)

The alt-right is the old right as exemplified by such luminaries as Gerald Ford. This is the spirit of the Nordic race, in edenic terms the progressive cro magnon as characterized by the “fauxcippital” style of dolicocephalism. This is an occipital bulge where the volume is concentrated above the eyeline, and it is characterized by primitive egotism.

The ideology of fascism is statolotry: worship of the state, understood as the nation’s spirit made manifest (the volkgeist). It is secular paganism (I blame Goethe, as always). The morality of this ideology is harmony via conformity and central planning, and because it is utopian in scope it is also totalitarian in application. The reason for all of this is the understanding that national harmony makes strength: pagan virtus.

The consequence of this sort of paganism is purity spiraling (aestheticism overrides all other values), masculine cult mentality, mysticism, and military expansionism.

Also, I’ve changed my mind: the German-Americans are going to lose Round Two. What I hadn’t realized is how few Germans there are in today’s armed forces compared to the Anglos, and how obsessed they are with uniforms, appearances, and other sorts of motivational affirmations (Sukhomlinov Effect).

    You should stick with your guts.

    The Anglos that count in the officer ranks in the military are pushing the “Your nothing but a white male.”, for career progression. This equality is eating the Angloshpere armies alive operationally, morally, and economically.

    The backlash of right wing fascism is always weaker at the beginning, in the end, it ends with purges.

    Another form of r Vs K policy IMO.

      >You should stick with your guts.

      I try to follow this advice because my gut is usually a lot more trustworthy than my brain. However, the gut reaction changes when perspective changes, hence the primary importance of gestalt shifts. This change of mind is an example.

      >The Anglos that count in the officer ranks in the military are pushing the “Your nothing but a white male.”, for career progression. This equality is eating the Angloshpere armies alive operationally, morally, and economically.

      You don’t need a lot of good officers, what you need is good stock and a pre-existing military culture. German-Americans have the former and Anglo-Americans have the latter and enough of the former to tip the scale. When it comes down to it, what really matters in a fight are size, fitness, and hard-coded training. Today’s military is from the South, so that’s where all the veterans are.

      I suppose we’ll find out.

    “the progressive cro magnon” at first I laughed, then I realized that the more good a Swede for example tries to be, his capacity for destruction just multiplies tenfold instead. Same for the Germans. In relations to the other races that is, tho they thelsemves get some fallout.

    The criminal colony that is Australia shut down the boating and mass drownings, while we Swedes and Germans bathe in their blood and our goodly intentions.

    The Thals they knew this business inside and out, if you are a shut in xenophobe, the world will be a better place, for everybody. “Don’t come here it sucks you have to work and pay taxes to melonheads”

    The good cro-mag, kicker is there is no such thing, they just become more evil because a new arena opened up, a chance for more mayhem, albeit unintentionally (repressed evil, “- look at me I am a nice person now! etc”).

    White devils, said the ooga booga. Not sure if they were wrong.

    The pokemon-bit was interesting. The latter half contains several errors. I’m addressing them here: http://altrugenics.com/forum1/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=823

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      Copypasta of my clarifications:

      When I use the word “pagan”, I have in mind the Nicomachean Ethics and the pursuit of virtue. The gods of paganism are an afterthought. When I use the word “fascist” I have in mind the cro magnon spirit as expressed in my eternal high school myth, and as best approximated by Rome and Prussia. When I use the term “utopian” I’m really only concerned with the behavior of utopianists, because as Tom Kratman points out, every evil is justified if it brings about eternal perfection (x/infinity is zero if x is finite). By secular, I simply mean the cultural manifestations of presumed materialism. The dictionary definition is not quite right IMO. So “secular paganism” becomes materialist worship of strength via national harmony.

      Obviously I have a great deal of trouble using the correct terms as I go and this produces confusion in me as well as in others. This comes from my executive function retardation, which is quite pronounced at the moment.

    /puts on autiste hat

    But the reason comparing Pokémon to dogfighting is so infuriating to ~true fans~ of these series is the games and associated media both put heavy emphasis on the idea that Pokémon are more like children than animals: perhaps not fully accountable moral agents, but sapient and deserving of more care than the “bad guys” (who treat them as fighting dogs) give them. (I’d put musings about this being the attempted introduction of a kinder, gentler melonhead ethos here but HAHA I’m so terrible at Edenism.)

    Also, are you talking about “rising popularity of Pokémon” in terms of the twenty-year arc of the series proper, or the recent enormous surge fueled by Pokémon Go?

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      Both. I don’t know whether you’re right about the soft/hard will-to-power message, because there needed to be *something* to identify the bad guys as bad (although less so nowadays, you can mostly just point and say “Hitler” to unleash the hounds, as it were :-P). So I figure the weak version of all this is true: the unconscious attitude of the creators came through in the expression, which favors benevolent will-to-power.

    Cro-magnids may seem a bit too nasty with their hierarchy and conformism and all the resulting civilisation but at least they didn’t eat their own mothers and bludgeon their three-year olds during temper tantrums with sticks. Unlike a certain cave-dweller…….

    Trainers never fight themselves. Trainers are helpless without their Pokemon. Trainers catch (enslave) Pokemon with Pokeballs. Trainers are Melons. Pokemon are Saps/Cros. Pokeballs are Magick. Owl wrote “magic is Melon birthright”. Translation: “without the Melon monopoly of magick Order/Pyramid will fall”.

    “This is particularly notable because it is also the root of fascism”, “The ideology of fascism is statolotry: worship of the state”

    Fascism = Crypto-communism, Statolotry = One Ring. Also, beware of those who praise the coming Age of Aquarius. The ruler of Aquarius in Classical/True Astrology is Saturn (aka Moloch).

    “I don’t think the rising popularity of Pokemon is an accident, but rather a subliminal awareness within Generation Z that they will be the “people” in this arrangement, living beneath a fascist regime”

    Then Millenials should stay celibate, lest their children end up as slaves. Also, if at some point you find yourself in a gulag, remember that suicide is NOT a sin: http://thetruthinlimbo.blogspot.com/2009/12/bible-and-suicide.html

      Minwu gets it in one!

      >Fascism = Crypto-communism, Statolotry = One Ring. Also, beware of those who praise the coming Age of Aquarius. The ruler of Aquarius in Classical/True Astrology is Saturn (aka Moloch).

      Yup. Good stuff!

      >Then Millenials should stay celibate, lest their children end up as slaves.

      Statistics say they are staying celibate, but this is because they can’t afford houses or girlfriends (and probably don’t have high sex drive because T-levels and porn).

      >Also, if at some point you find yourself in a gulag, remember that suicide is NOT a sin:

      I’ve stayed alive for eight years now on the intuition that it is a sin.
