The Cathedral, a centralized globalist conspiracy, or both?
Exploring the who and why behind the leftist hell we live in
I’ve been thinking of how to square the circle of differing core beliefs among different corners of the online right on what’s causing this leftist hell that we’re living in. Mainly because I get pissed off at infighting and countersignaling, especially when opposing beliefs are straw-manned or dubbed conspiracy theories. It’s too reminiscent of leftist tactics.
There’s different camps, but they can be roughly summarized into:
Abstract analysis (Nrx): the culprit is a decentralized entity made up of a network of academic and journalistic institutions engaging in a holiness spiral (the Cathedral)
Concrete analysis (Conspiracy right): the culprit is [centralized conspiracy]. This second camp can be further divided into wignats blaming the jews, some explicitly blaming globalists or globalists that happen to be jews in large numbers - WEF, The Great Reset; The Cominator on Jim’s blog has been talking about the Jesuits (a Catholic faction). I’ve seen screenshots about Jesuits posted on /pol/ in the past, so this is not as niche as it may sound.
Before we go any further, let’s talk about emergent phenomena. Emergent phenomena are those that arise from starting conditions without further deliberate actions by external agents/forces. However, just because an end state is the result of emergent processes arising from initial conditions, does not mean there was never any agency - never any deliberate action. How did the initial conditions come to be? Were they random, emergent or deliberate? Sometimes an emergent phenomenon is the necessary consequence of deliberately set up initial conditions and zero further interference. Evolution doesn’t disprove God (nor God evolution). God can exist regardless of whether he created the world in 7 days or if modern human life is the consequence of vast millennia of natural selection. Hence, the Nrx concept of GNON.
In the same vein, Moldbug’s Cathedral does not exclude the possibility of a centralized conspiracy nudging the Cathedral into whatever direction best suits its goals.
The utility of the Cathedral as a model
Ever since the covid “crisis”, it’s become increasingly obvious that a decentralized power structure that incentivizes incompetence and detachment from reality doesn’t most succintly explain everything that’s been happening. Don’t get me wrong, Moldbug’s Cathedral is “a thing” and it’s an excellent explanation for the mid-level phenomena, the process of how “scientific” consensus is achieved and propagated as well as its inertia despite clear evidence to the contrary.
Most people are incapable of truly rational, irreligious thinking. We are prone to cultification and narrativization. We need both a description of the world and a prescription on how to act within this world, facilitated by moral judgment. Science is no exception to this. Since science in principle tries to avoid prescription, when it becomes the descriptor, people are suddenly left without a prescriptor. Thus Science is born.
The religious character of mainstream science and people’s relationship to it should be obvious. Science and its Experts are something we need to trust and believe in. Something becomes fact once it has been published in a peer-reviewed article, no sooner. You may say there’s only 2 sexes, male and female and that gender is made up, but do you have a source for that? The sky is blue, but do you have a source for that? Perhaps the experts found that it’s actually red. Globohomo is our modern religion and the Cathedral (academia and journalism) is its Church. The core propositions of Globohomo are demonstrably false - rejections of reality, which is why it holiness spirals by distancing itself even farther from reality. It includes Science worship as a tenet because “science” is how these false propositions are justified, by manufacturing false consensus within the intelligentsia and presenting it as the truth. Normies have a distinctly religious relationship to Science - the words of Experts are gospel, peer-reviewed studies are holy texts and university professors are priests. Not all professors however, only those that align themselves with the power structure, those that echo its “truth”. If normies merely accept these demonstrably false things as fact, leftists fervently worship them. The difference between a normie (NPC) and a leftist is that a leftist doesn’t care whether what he believes is true, all that matters is that xis ideology will collapse the hierarchical system that puts xim on the bottom. Neither group can be reasoned with - normies don’t perceive (objective) truth, only consensus (power’s truth); leftists don’t care about (objective) truth, only (personal) power.
One of the key functions of religion is its “licensing” of violent acts against “heretics” (the outgroup), which ensures its own propagation and acts as a pressure valve for the socially sanctioned release of its adherents’ violent and aggressive impulses. This is done by presenting acts of violence against the outgroup as virtuous (rightly so), however the problem arises when a religion forces you to outgroup your ethnic ingroup. Of the Abrahamic religions, Judaism is the only one that doesn’t do this. In his book the Curse of Canaan, Eustace Mullins describes the will of Canaan as the prime guiding principle for the people that, according to him, are the ancestors of modern jews:
love one another (ingroup preference),
love robbery (usury),
love lewdness (pornography),
hate your masters (hatred of whites),
and do not speak the truth (the manufacturing of false consensus presented as truth)
Curious, but more on this later. Regardless, the Christian origin of universalism is again apparent. It manifests in Globohomo with whites defecting against whites in order to curry favor with their fellow normies and nonwhites. And also, with the “double standard” of only recognizing scientific authority if its speaking Globohomo’s truth, or if it’s itself backed by Cathedral authority. Ingroup Science is valid, outgroup science is not. Admittedly, this is merely a religious characteristic, not specifically Christian.
Evidence for a centralized conspiracy
All that said, not all aspects of Globohomo map fully well on the emergent character of the Cathedral and it’s fundamental proposition of universal equality (universalism). Sure, the normalization of trannies and child molesters is a natural and logical consequence of the normalization of faggotry, since they’re all just expressions of sexual deviance. Same goes for negro worship and its offshoots, it’s all either an escalation or a branching out. However, the climate change agenda (used to be global warming, when that was impossible to prove it was rebranded) doesn’t really map neatly onto universalism. It does map onto a Christian moral framework, in that carbon emissions are a measure of a person’s sins - which explains why a nation of Christian disposition eagerly accepts it, but not really on universalism. Same goes for Covid, it doesn’t map neatly onto universalism, which means someone who proposes that Covid hysteria is an emergent phenomenon should provide some reasoning on the conditions that made Covid hysteria arise in the first place. As i put in a comment on Jim’s blog:
Globohomo is interconnected, I think all of its themes are inevitable consequences of universalism – once homosexuality became normalized, trans and pedophilia were logical conclusions – but covid isn’t explicitly globohomo, it was just stapled onto globohomo because that was the most efficient way of getting NPCs to adopt the false consensus. Russia was even more easily stapled onto globohomo by going Putin = Hitler.
The inertia of Covid hysteria/theatre on the other hand maps fully well onto the Cathedral model - once something becomes part of scientific consensus, it’s very hard to dislodge. Except by deus ex machina - when a guiding hand from above instructs the Cathedral that the consensus is to change. Example: the 180 turn on Covid in the start of 2020, went from milder than the flu and masks don’t work to more dangerous than ebola.
There is, however, a more abstract level at which the parallels between aspects of globohomo, covid and climate change become more clear. As I said in my previous essay, all aspects of Globohomo intersect at death worship, because exemplifying sexual deviancy, hatred of one’s race, ugliness worship, Science worship (cuckmuzzles, beyond meat, green energy) all lead to darwinistically morbid outcomes, as Moldbug would say. In other words, the effect of adopting Globohomo morality and policy is failed reproduction and societal decline. Globalists such as WEF representatives, Gates1 and the recently popularized Harari2 have been talking (more or less clearly) about the depopulation agenda. Coincidence? Not likely.
Jim offers a counterpoint to my statement that elites are not drinking their (by which i meant Globohomo’s) kool-aid, that was meant to imply our elites are competent, not incompetent as some camps believe.
If they were not drinking their own koolaide, they would be successfully reproducing. They are not. If they have children, they send them to drag queen story hour. They are getting clot shot.
I have a couple objections. First, a distinction has to be made between Elites and “elites”. Money and fame do not, by themselves, make someone an Elite. Let’s take Emma Watson for example. She is a relatively famous, succesful and wealthy actress turned feminist activist - she is a “high status”3 woman that has been fully subsumed into the Globohomo agenda. But she is not an Elite. She lucked into money and fame, and has been turned into a useful idiot for the system. The result can be observed in the picture below.
Early thirties, no kids, looks like she’s 15 years older than her age. Her darwinian fitness has been severly compromised by her ideology. However, this is to be expected. When status is afforded based on exemplifying Globohomo and increased by holiness spiraling into more and more extreme interpretations of Globohomo, it follows that social climbing is going to result in increasing deterioration of individual darwinian fitness. Additionally, high status people will, in keeping up with the holiness spiral, need to signal and eventually exemplify more extreme versions of the Globohomo ideology to retain their high status - leading to increasingly higher costs to their darwinian fitness. Many high profile actors and actresses make a eunuch out of their son and parade him around to virtue signal and jockey for status within their community of “intellectual” social climbers. I think one possible conception of Elites is that they are those who can bypass this process, those who can retain their high status despite exemplifying the officially unofficial religion to a minimal degree, perhaps only paying lip service to it.
Emma Watson is, as are most Hollywood actresses, a socialite. In other words, a wealthy and famous normie. She is thus predictably more Globohomoified (less successful in a darwinian sense) than your average normie woman. The lower class follows yesterday’s leftism, the middle class today’s leftism and the upper class tomorrow’s leftism. Since leftism gets progressively more insane, upper class normies are hit the hardest. And since this social stratification is bioleninist in nature, people in highly visible positions of influence and power will necessarily be incompetent (useful idiots).
An argument could be made that high profile intellectuals (Fauci) and politicians (the Clintons, Baidan…) are closer to the real Elites. I’m not sure. There’s an argument to be made that in today’s globalized world, those that concern themselves with national politics are by definition not Elites. It doesn’t really matter who the president is, when he is controlled by the “deep state”. The president has some executive power, but the Cathedral has more power. And, I suspect, those that coordinate the Cathedral have the most power. With this in mind, I’m not sure that looking at the reproductive success of visible high profile intellectuals is a perfect measure of elite competence, or a perfect indicator of whether they’re drinking the Globohomo kool-aid or not.
We have to keep in mind that unless your water supply is completely separate from the water supply of the masses, poisoning the well is apt to poison your drinking water as well. In this sense, if the status acquisition process of a society is “poisoned” by a self-mutilatory religion like Globohomo; everyone who needs to participate in that status acquisition process is going to end up mutilated to some degree. Except the ones that can acquire or keep high status independent of the “mainstream” status acquisition process - hence my earlier conceptualization of Elites.
Last, another reason why I think reproductive success is an imperfect heuristic when it comes to judging Elite competence, is their transhumanist agenda4, dubbed the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This includes, but is not limited to: the internet of bodies (connecting everyone to a cloud via implantable microdevices in the human body - this can be used for direct uploading of bodily data to the internet as well as for mining cryptocurrency), world brain (connecting all of mankind into one sensorium via technology, united by common beliefs. A world encyclopedia would determine consensus reality5). Interestingly, the term transhumanism was apparently first coined by evolutionist scholar and Jesuit Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and later picked up by Fabian Socialist Julian Huxley. Putting the aide the question of whether a transhumanist agenda is sane or not, I think stating a transhumanist would be less concerned with securing offspring for himself than with the realization of his transhumanist dream is a reasonable proposition. The goal of the transhumanist is not to “be fruitful and multiply”, it’s to ascend, achieve immortality, “upload” his consciousness or transfer it into someone else. If one accepts it, then the competence of someone who states and demonstrates themselves to be a transhumanist should be judged not by how successfully he reproduces, but by how successful he is in implementing his transhumanist agenda; or at least setting up the stage for its implementation. The Elites may very well be drinking a kool-aid, but I sincerely doubt it’s the Globohomo one. Globohomo is simply the way they get the public on board with their true agenda, as insane as that sounds. I would also like to use this opportunity to stress that when dealing with powerful enemies, seemingly motivated by arcane, esoteric and seemingly deranged supernatural designs - pointing that fact out does not make one a schizo. Additionally, it doesn’t matter whether what they believe is true or possible, merely that they believe it to be true and/or possible.
While the implementation is still in its infancy, the stage has been set for it quite masterfully. The public has bought the official narrative on the Covgh, they believe The Great Reset is merely a brilliant and quickly devised solution to the Covgh “crisis” (problem-reaction-solution), they are on board with the anti-Russia effort, and of course Putler is to blame for inflation. They even managed to use both the Covgh and the war in Ukraine to advance their anti-white agenda: it should be clear that “refugees” do not have to show proof of vaccination when crossing borders, nor when they are looking for asylum. The war in Ukraine has the fully coincidental consequence of killing thousands of white men, whereas “Ukranians” get to leave the country and listen to sex education alongside teenage girls in Hungary and Poland.
In short, just because the Cathedral is a decentralized emergent “conspiracy”, doesn’t mean it can’t get nudged into a particular direction by a real conspiracy. In fact, I think its the prime target for it. When you’ve got a self propagating consensus manufacturer like the Cathedral, you need to exert minimal effort to shape the emergent consensus. Everything else is done by the process itself.
I think this section offers enough justification for my claim that there is clear evidence of a centralized conspiracy. On to the more important question, who’s in charge of it?
The possible conspirators
I don’t think there’s enough evidence to definitively single out a group or faction and point to it as the clear culprit. However, there’s a few (not entirely mutually exclusive) options with evidence pointing their way:
The Jews. The group wignats love to hate should certainly be considered as a likely culprit. With their special status as the pinnacle of oppressed ethnic groups, criticizing them in any way on the internet gets the Eye of Sauron focused on you; whereas saying anything bad about them in polite company is social suicide. Muh holocaust and all that. They are disproportionately represented in positions of power in media, academia, finance and politics. Many bad actors have a very similar early life section on Wikipedia, etc. The Cathedral? More like The Synagogue!
According to Voltaire’s heuristic, they are a very likely candidate. At the same time, many Jews are prone to sincerely adopting Globohomo ideology, removing themselves from the genepool in the process. See: Mr. “Rachel” Levine.
The globalists. Or more accurately, the WEF and rich international oligarchs such as Gates and Soros. Of course, many globalists (Soros, for example) have a specific early life section on Wikipedia, although many also do not. So this category is at least somewhat interchangable with the first one. The WEF and its business partners have not been shy about revealing their plans. The aforementioned Great Reset (TGR) is being implemented as we speak. We’re on track for the abolition of private property, livestock farming and freedom of thought. We will own nothing, we will eat the bugs, we will believe the Experts and we will be happy. Thuletide has written a bunch of good articles going over the details of TGR, so I won’t go into detail. Suffice to say that they want us to cut off our dicks, give up our property, import rapefugees, eat zee bugs and live in zee pod. Some object to identifying key spokespeople of TGR as heads of the conpiracy, arguing that they are too visible, but I think that’s dissident-right solipsism. The average normie is significantly less observant and aware of these things than “us”. Most people don’t know about TGR, if they do they believe in the official narrative; if they’ve heard “our” interpretation they don’t believe it, if they believe our interpretation they don’t care about it. The TGR globalist agenda is visible to a minority of people, to everyone else it might as well not exist.
The Jesuits, an order dedicated to consolidating the power of Vatican and the pope. Before The Cominator started mentioning them in Jim’s comment section, the only place I’d seen this group mentioned was in some obscure infographics and screenshots on /pol/. But looking into transhumanism has made me consider this position more seriously - the term was coined by a Jesuit scholar and is now the main agenda of the globalists. There is a reasonable amount of evidence (see the pictures below) that the contemporary Catholic Church has been subverted by satanic interests and is working to bring about the Antichrist6. A pope that kisses the feet of heretics (muslims) clearly serves Globohomo and is exactly the kind of pope one would expect from a Church working to bring about the Antichrist - an antipope. With this in mind, the fact that Vatican pays homage to leftism is not evidence against its influence in the world. The agenda of a Satanic Church includes leftism by definition.
There’s a good chance that all three groups are in it together, or at the very least, members of all three groups. Especially given that transhumanism, an essentially Satanic prospect, was first coined by a Jesuit scholar, then adopted by globalists and is being implemented today.
The religious character of Elite motivation
While it’s not clear who the “real” Elites are, I think acknowledging their clearly stated and demonstrated transhumanist agenda clues us into the religious character of their motivation. I’m not talking about Globohomo - that’s the religion sold to the masses (the exoteric religion) in order to fuel the Elite’s (esoteric) religion.
The Elites are, in my opinion, literal Satanists or Demon worshippers, whatever term you prefer. As the Cominator put in a comment on Jim’s Blog:
Holiness spiraling and Pournelle’s Iron Law are useful as to why government always only grows without one man in charge (absent very unusual circumstances) and why Cthulu only swims left…
But much of what happened with Covid is only explainable by a very Alex Jones/David Icke conspiratorial view…
Jim once said something along the lines of “Modeling people accross an IQ gap is hard, even harder accross a sanity gap. The actions of many leftists are best explained by assuming demonic possession.” DROM, demons real or metaphorical is the counterpart to GNON and just like I believe Nature’s God is actually God, I believe leftists and their Elites are worshipping and/or possessed by literal Demons. It’s the simplest explanation that ties everything together. And if God’s decree is to “be fruitful and multiply”, the demonic decree is the exact opposite, albeit fulfilled in many different ways. The motivation can’t be financial, because as demonstrated by the 2008 financial crisis, banks and big corporations will just get bailed out when the effects of runaway money-printing cause an economic crisis. Power is a motivator, but they already have more or less undisputed control over the minds of the masses. They now seek to control our bodies as well, but this control is not an end in itself, but a means to another end.
Let’s return to the fact that Globohomo is at its core, a death cult. Exemplifying any of its aspects (transfaggotry should be obvious, ethnic self-hatred likewise, the vaxx is poison, climate change cultism leads to veganism which is supremely unhealthy etc.) significantly reduces your reproductive fitness. From a demonological point of view, every person that has their life ruined by Globohomo is a sacrifice to one of Globohomo’s deities. Planned parenthood, one of Globohomo’s proudest projects, is a child sacrifice cult, reminiscent of Aztec human sacrifice in the 16th century. Historically, child sacrifice was also practiced by the Canaanite (Babylonians according to Mullins) Moloch worshippers. The new Covid cult is similarly a child sacrifice cult (a Moloch cult), given that the goal is to implement mandatory Covid vaccination of newborns, which vaccination is purportedly safe as can be, but in reality vastly more dangerous than the actual virus.
The same can be posited for every aspect of Globohomo. There is a (literal) anti-racist demon, a feminist demon, a socialist demon, a climate change demon and every human life ruined or lost because of a dedication to these ideologies is fuel for these entitites. Thus, the Globohomo religion is how the Elites get everyone to serve their demonic entities. Reasonable people won’t just sacrifice their children to literal demons. Present it as virtue and prudence however, and people will happily do it. Their issue is that their mind control is evidently imperfect. Not everyone is drinking their kool-aid, which is why they want us all connected to the internet of bodies, beholden to a social credit score, so they can force us to worship their demonic deities.
I’m not sure what their endgame entails, since I’m not sure what their exact beliefs are, but it’s possible that their goal is to manifest these entities in the physical world through an integration of man and machine, fueled by the bodies and brains of every living human or perhaps they wish to ascend as the human avatars of these entities, who knows. I realise this sounds schizo, but I’m just trying to guess at their motivations.
Apparently de Chardin said the technological singularity would bring about the “noosphere” (mind-sphere) of conjoined consciousness that would envelop the entire world. This would bring about the second coming of Christ and signify mankind’s transition from transhumanism to posthumanism. This was underpinned by his belief in something called “the omega point” whereby the entire universe slowly converges into one final point of absolute unification. He identified this “Omega Point” with the Christian Logos and cites the Book of Revelation when Christ describes himself as “the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.”7 Sounds more like the appearance of the Antichrist to me, but what do I know.
It’s interesting, because just last week I was reading a thread on /pol/ and saved the following image (I’m not actually sure what it’s supposed to represent, exactly, but note the Alpha-Omega consciousness continuum):
It’s apparent that the technological singularity is a significant milestone for these people. Coupled with their very thinly veiled demon worship, my best guess is that they believe the technological singularity will in some way manifest their Demonic masters.
In short, I believe there’s evidence that The Cathedral has been coopted/has always been coopted by a centralized conspiracy of literal demon worshippers that are working to manifest their demonic masters on the material plane. It’s likely that they believe transhumanism in the form of a global man-machine hivemind is the key to the realization of this goal. Sounds schizo, I know. But I’m putting it out there regardless.
Gates claims carbon emissions are a function of people, services per person, energy per service, CO2 per unit of energy - one of these things is going to have to get close to 0. I wonder which one he has in mind?
Seriously, I'd heard about this guy in the past, but it seems to me that he has been brought to the forefront of the media in recent months. He asks, what do we need all these people for? What indeed. Both of these “men” hard-fail the physiognomy check. Perhaps this is why they are so hellbent on their transhumanist agenda?
In a loose sense of the term, as money and fame don’t contribute to women’s status on the sexual market.
I’m mixed on Musk. In some ways he seems like /ourguy/, in others he seems on board with the globalist agenda. At least he doesn’t explicitly worship Globohomo…
I HATE THE ANTICHRIST!
