(Alt. title: “How I Learned to Stop Being Triggered and Realized that People Have No Agency”)
Say it with me: “The Overwhelming Majority of Humanity has No Agency.”
The sooner you realize this, the sooner you insulate yourself from the chronic disappointment, anger and despair that comes with living in the modern West.
Interestingly this was the very first political observation I had ever made, and it came when I was as young as 6 years old. From a very early age I was deeply frustrated by the fact that about 90% of people I talked to were incapable of grasping the most basic ideas of logic, and cause and effect — let alone things like the idea of moral responsibility. Thus one of the only political ideas that I have been 100% consistent on, since I was like 6 years old, is that democracy is cancer and that the vast majority of people should have no say in the political process.
Even at this young age I realized that at least 90% of the population are more or less incapable of any sort of critical thinking or self-reflection, and will simply act however they are conditioned or as they are told. This I think, in addition to my learning disability, was the reason I was only an A- student and didn’t do much better in class.
I don’t mean to brag but back when I was tested I scored within the 99.99 percentile on the overall intellectual ability test, and had a post-secondary level vocabulary back in grade 3. Despite that and being a very diligent student, well behaved, and a constant reader, I frequently would fight with my teachers and was often considered a troublesome student.
This was largely due to the fact that I would show too much creativity in trying to answer questions and do projects. I hated having to write essays on whatever simplistic topic I was assigned and not being allowed to explore the issue or express my personality at all.
Whenever I would try to go into a in-depth analysis of a play or novel in English class my classmates would mock me and act with derision and the teachers would get angry at me for not answering the same boring questions over and over again, like “in chapter 8 what did George do” — this is literally what English teaching is like in Canada, well into high school; boring sheet after boring sheet of filling in rote questions. Even in university professors would punish me for having my own opinion; and more than one told me “when you have a PhD, then, and only then, can you be creative.”
So what does any of this have to do with politics you might ask? What is Argie rambling on about? Well, my point is that I had a revelation a week ago after the Conservative Party of Canada overwhelmingly voted to abandon a commitment to traditional marriage, and virtually everyone who had defended it for years justified it and shilled for the decision. Listening to what people said leading up to it and in the aftermath made me finally put it all together.
“None of these people have any agency.”
It was a liberating thought! Of course they will make morally irresponsible decisions with no ability to do the most basic form of analysis; the vast majority of humanity has virtually no agency. Just because they might be middle class or well-educated is no guarantee that they are autonomous individuals.
The average person will literally take at face value and believe just about whatever someone on TV or some celebrity will tell them, they lack even the most basic ability to detect deceit or think about things like motive.
The Conservative Delegates voted the way they did for the simple reason that there was no authority figure to tell them otherwise (the only perceived authority figures they had told them to do so). The school system, the political system, the way our society operates, is because the vast majority of people have zero agency — it’s just harder to see in white societies because people are better spoken and their lack of agency doesn’t lead to Mad Max-tier violence.
Thus we not only have the government we deserve but a government that reflects who we are. Ultimately most people’s deepest wish is to be a slave, and they are happier the less they have to think. This is the fundamental flaw of ideologies like Libertarianism which are based on the idea that everyone has agency (which they clearly don’t).
As a side note this would be a much better explanation for Jewish power — that Jews have a much higher percentage of people who have agency, which allows them to dominate weaker-willed peoples by more or less playing to that people’s need to be told what to do.
Ultimately this has taken a load off of my mind. Public opinion polls don’t matter, who people vote for doesn’t matter; all that matters is what the people with power tell the plebs to believe, thus, it doesn’t matter how much of the public is with us or against us, all we need to worry about is getting people into positions of influence or power, or at least giving that impression we have either, and the plebs will fall in-line like they always do.
I will do another article exploring this topic further at a later point.
