How To Prosecute Rather Than Convince

HOW TO PROSECUTE RATHER THAN CONVINCE

We have moral cause (genocide).
We have moral authority (a century of lies).
We have sufficient violence.
We have opportunity (loss of any credibility in the honesty of our opponents.)

So, we have means, motive and opportunity.

PROSECUTION
1) Prosecute people to demonstrate that they are liars and thieves.

2) Ask why they will not trade with you instead of lie, cheat and steal.

3) Tell them that if we disagree and they force no costs upon us, our kin, and our civilization, then that is merely an agreement to disagree. If they wish to trade what we wish for what they wish then that is merely an agreement to cooperate on means, even though we seek different ends. But if they will not respect what is ours and leave us in peace, will not compromise by trade, and instead seek to impose costs upon us, our kin, and our civilizations, by proxy via the force of government, or by deceit, or by conversion, or by invasion, or by violence, then it is only rational that we will resort ourselves to violence, displacement, deportation, enslavement, and truthfulness.

We are left with no choice but to prosecute enemies by punishment, expulsion, enslavement, or death.

This is what I mean by prosecution.

Definitions of Techniques of Deception

DEFINITIONS: LOADING, FRAMING, OVERLOADING.

Loading = Moral Loading (a form of biasing a suggestion, causing the person to be more heavily influenced by intuition – social effects.)

Framing = a form of informational cherrypicking where one eliminates some information and overloads with other information, in order to bias the conclusions of others.

Overloading = Cognitive Overloading ( The use of information, language, detail, to cause the failure of the individual to analytically tests the statement and resort to intuition – cognitive effects)

Pseudoscience and pseudorationalism, religion, and narrative are methods of Overloading. (Marxism is at present the second best form of overloading after monotheism – both of which make false utopian promises).

I sometimes separate out Environmental Overloading (Propaganda) to demonstrate overloading at scale, by industrialized means.

I sometimes refer to religion as using overloading and submission to overloading as a price of ritual entry into an identity.

Most deception occurs by the use of incomplete information to cause reliance on introspection (substitution). this kind of deception is open to denial, and therefore not open to retaliation. Whereas supplying false information rather than incomplete and suggested information is not open to denial, and therefore is open to retaliation.

Using Propertarian Reasoning (Methodology)

Sep 05, 2016 8:40am
*** PROPERTARIAN REASONING: SPECTRA ***

THREE POINTS MAKE A TESTABLE LINE
THREE POINTS MAKE A TESTABLE TRIANGLE.
THREE BEHAVIORS CREATE A TESTABLE ANALYSIS

PROPERTARIAN REASONING:
i) TAKE A CONCEPT,
iii) “FIND THREE POINTS”.
iii) Then FIND LIMITS.
iv) Then FILL IN BETWEEN THEM.

1) The Unknown Known is as Problematic as the Unknown Unknown.
– Known Known
– Known Unknown
– Unknown Unknown (things we can’t imagine)
– Unkown Known. (Metaphysical assumptions)
(Truth Table: Known vs Unknown)

2) Escaping Reality: Humanity Escapes the Present.
– Westerner Civ – Heroism, Change, Future. (Aristocracy, Stoicism )
– Eastern Civ – Duty, Harmony, Past. ( Historicism and ritual )
– Magian Civ – Submission, Obeyance, Otherworldly(monotheism)
– Denial Civ – Disconnection, Internalism, Excapism. (buddhism)
(Truth Table: x=future vs past, y= fantasy vs escapism)

3) Causes of Metaphysical Assumptions
(population density and climate hostility vs means of farm production)
(Also value of individual human life in north/sparse vs south/dense)

Very Short Introduction to the Epistemology of Testimonialism

[B]RIEF DISCUSSION OF THE EPISTEMOLOGY OF TESTIMONIALISM

1) All non-tautological statements are incomplete, and as such no non-trivial premises are complete. Therefore all statements consist of nothing more than theoretical promises contingent upon their survival of criticism.

2) We can systematically criticize each dimension of every statement for identity, internal consistency, existential possibility, external correspondence, morality, full accounting, limits and parsimony.

3) If the statement survives this (admittedly expensive) criticism, then it remains a truth candidate that we can take risks with or not as our judgement sees fit.

4) Instead of justification providing legitimacy or support, provides a discount on later warranties, not an increase in truth content.

Note: This last statement kind of threw me because I wasn’t expecting to come to that kind of conclusion. So while I wish I was done with this topic, it still behooves me to work on this problem. I still move it forward a bit at a time. The further I move it the less questions are left open and the more survivable the theory is from refutation. The hardest problem of all is parsimony, and as far as I know the only way to achieve this is through publication and social criticism.

Thanks for following me on the journey.
