    Including a Querie 

    Natural and memetic selections aren’t the end all. There is another type that encompasses them both: query selection. Queries include linguistic questions but aren’t limited to them: they can be roughly abstracted to “a request for information.” This includes all types of selection, but also such things as sexual reproduction.

    There is a class of queries: queries about queries. For example, “How do I ask better questions?” which has the wonderful quality of recursive self-improvement.

    Memes become toxic/cancerous/parasitic when they supplant questions. X is the answer, full stop. The memetic war in a sense could be thought of as a war on questioning itself, a war on selection: the idealized viral meme would make perfect copies of itself endlessly.

    What companies in the tech industry are concerned with queries? Try Googling it.

    Adapting New Techniques for a New Type of War 

    All you can do is adapt to adaptations for a time until a new strategy adapts to those adaptions. It is truly infinite in complexity because the strategies build off of each other.

    Saying that you’ve solved memetics is like saying that you’ve solved evolution – you may well have a fitting broad theory, but the knowledge of the overarching theory does not give you knowledge of how adaptation will occur or even could occur in a given system

    At best you can make memetics into a science like economics and your theories can become more refined, but when you’re dealing with a living system that adapts to adaptations you will never be able to rest on any static strategy – the only static things will be necessary truths too broad to be useful.

    As soon as the knowledge of whatever insight they have into memetics is itself spread, then the market changes and the strategy no longer apply – you can only front run. For instance, as soon as it becomes known that a certain method of advertising is effective for getting a consumer to buy X, then, the consumer will be inoculated against this strategy in proportion to their mindfulness. Here socialization comes into play as those that still fall for the strategy are deemed slow witted and made all the less likely to fall for the strategy due to stigmatization

    Memetic Engineer 

    Everyone is a “memetic engineer” to some existent, but not equally in talent; there are some that are naturally exceptionally gifted at it. These supernodes can generally be classified into mutators, selectors and reproducers, with an even smaller set that are prodigious in all three. The first step was to identify and study these individuals, which was made possible by the internet. Then came augmentation: testing to see how to make these memetic supernodes even better. The final part was when these supernodes were tapped to apply memetics to memetics in a recursive process that increased the power of the program exponentially. The popularization of the word “meme” on the internet was the result of this, and also served as a siren’s call to attract more innate supernodes. It has also helped to normalize the concept of meme and make it appear harmless and natural rather than something evil and scary.

    Not Playing the Part 

    When people put employment, for their profile, one of the most common mistakes they make is putting self-employed. Even if you are self-employed, most people still put the name of the company own, on their profile. It’s very unnatural for people, just to put unemployment. The best thing to choose for employment, is finding a big business, with a lot of employees, close to the area the target is in. Resorts, tourist, and large companies are the best, since most employees don’t know everyone who works at their company.

    Photos always make for interesting exploits. One thing important to do when looking at photos, for exploits, is keep in mind the location. Sometimes they are obvious like having palm trees, in the background and tagging the place as New Jersey. Sometimes they are more discrete, like jewelry, or items placed in the background, of a photo.

    Having friends on a fake profile, is always a good idea. The problem is you need to make friends in your targets area. Sometimes times you can get a lot of information about a person, from their friends list. This is especially true if their friend list includes people who have profile that don’t seem normal but matches that of others in the fake friends list.  

    Timing is another problem people face. If the fake profile is too new, people will know right away the profile is fake.

    13 Things the Left does to Create White Racists 

    I know we are talking about memes, and how they can have an effect in the real world. I want to point out things that the left says and push, yet it has an opposite effect of what they wish. These are things that the left says about racist, that only make more racist. These are the types of things the left did to fuel the rise of the Alt-Right and Neo-Nazism.

    1. Constantly and aggressively guilt white people for things done by people hundreds of years ago.
    2. Shame white people for no other reason than how they were born.
    3. Tell white people that they have invisible privilege and they deserve nothing they’ve accomplished even if they grew up in horrible conditions.
    4. Reject any apologetic action or attempts to “be better white people” as racist.
    5. Tell white people they are bland, boring and have no culture.
    6. Tell them they are racist for dating and marrying within their race.
    7. Tell them they have no right to advocate for their own interests while everyone else does.
    8. Tell them they have no right to their own native countries in Europe.
    9. Call them racist for enjoying the company of their own race.
    10. Call them racist for not having a crippling sense of self-loathing and guilt for who they are.
    11. Tell them they deserve to be minorities in their own countries.
    12. Tell them they have no right to defend themselves against non-white violence.
    13. Tell them they cannot experience racism.

    Converting Bernie Supporters 

    I’ve noticed an unspoken kinship between Sanders and Trump fans, compared to Trump and Biden fans

    Both are anti-establishment, populist, newcomers with rabid fanbases. They both put the people first (in their own way) and are facing establishment adversaries that are completely hated by everyone on every side. I have a feeling we can tip the Sanders crowd toward more pro-Trump views by posing as Sanders supporters and highlighting the similarities between them. Warm them up so if Bernie loses the primary, they’ll vote for Trump in the general election. It won’t even be a huge jump; they just have to see a shift in the consensus.

    Emphasize how terrible Biden is, and reluctantly back Trump. Trump’s an asshole, but at least he’s not a hair sniffing opportunist like Biden. Highlight how Trump doesn’t want to start any wars and would rather work with countries to form peace. Mention Biden’s role in the last administration, and how it destroyed America.

    Bridge the gap both ways on your real/conservative accounts. Say feel-good kumbayah things like “I’m a Trump supporter, but if Bernie was still in, then I would definitely vote for him. The establishment needs to go.” Liberals love heartwarming “enemies becoming friends” stories and your comments will be easily upvoted.

    Fortune Cookies 

    Fortune cookies are a famous desert, of Chinese dishes. But this is only true, in America. True story.

    https://www.thespruceeats.com/history-of-the-fortune-cookie-694583

    The fortune cookie is rumored to of started in Japan, many years ago. They were first scene, in San Francisco around 1900. In 1989 the US started importing them into Hong Kong. By 1992 Wonton company tried to market these to China. They were rejected because they were viewed as too American. Kind of weird to think how America views them as Chinese, and the Chinese view them as too American.

    Tactics for Dealing with Troll Group 

    Tactics to Derail a Troll Group:

    •  In group fighting (example: HOLY SHIT THEY ARE REMOVING ALL ECELEB THREADS.)
    • Killing operations (example: [current operation] is shit and we shouldn’t do it because it doesn’t do anything.)
    • Killing initiative (example:  We should wait for [something] before we do [something else].)
    • Lumping good guys with enemies.

    Tactics to Make a Troll Group Work:

    • Some main operations that need to continue until the movement’s end.
    • Some memes to keep up initiative and interest through shitposting.
    • No regard for negative media (coverage of it, good or bad, is still coverage.  The only good move they can play there is to ignore us, and they will take the bait knowing them.)
    • Have a solid end game.

    White Pride Skittles Meme 

    It’s almost June, and companies are getting ready for pride month. Usually they will put a label on their products, in support of the LBQTP community. But one company wants to do something different. Skittles is going the other way.

    https://twitter.com/GayStation64/status/870911966193254400?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E870911966193254400&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftime.com%2F4818777%2Fwhite-skittles-lgbt-pride-month%2F

    Skittles is going to be marketing white candies in the name of pride. Usually they are different colors, and they even have the slogan “Taste the Rainbow.” Which is already pretty gay sounding to begin with. The made their candies white, in the name of pride. This does sound too good, with the words “white” and “pride” used to advertise a product. It’s especially bad, when you realize they are trying to appeal to leftist, who are usually against white pride. It’s not hard to see, how a troll could put a negative spin on this.

    Sample: Making up a Word Attack 

    Here’s a theoretical idea, memeing into existence the insult “armchair philanthropist”

    As an armchair psychologist is someone who pretends to have advanced insight and knowledge about the human mind, but lays on a bunch of fancy words, just to seem smart. An armchair philanthropist would describe these people who rally immediately towards “helping people” and “building awareness,” but never actually go out and do anything to further their causes. Instead choosing to look at memes on Reddit/Facebook that reinforce their confirmation biases

    Sample of this type of attack: Plaster the face of George Soros, et al., with “Armchair Philanthropist.”  This also includes the purpose of getting their names into the public conscious.  Right now, they’re the mysterious shadow figures who direct money to “legitimate” agencies who then toss the cash to provocateurs to incite whatever and exist outside the public mentality.

    It can, therefore, be utilized in conjunction with the counter-meme of the “Action Philanthropist” or, basically, the scientist, activist or whomever who knuckles down and grabs the shovel.  Think of Donald Trump in this capacity.  He could’ve given money to say, Ted Cruz, but the Donald stepped to the podium.

    It may also be useful to utilize the Hayek quote “The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they know about what they imagine they can design” in order to create an applicable and vicious comparison between the Armchair and Action Philanthropists.  There are those people who consider someone’s success in one aspect of life as holding knowledge and abilities which enable them to produce superior results in other dissimilar areas.  Comparing someone who doesn’t act with someone who acts makes an impact in people’s minds while helping to convey the message that because Soros plays finances well does not inherently determine his efficacy in handling other issues or the validity of his ideas on these topics.

    As a quick example, a picture of George Soros which presents an image of frailty, an aloof nature (due to wealth) and distance from the cause (dress, location, etc.) presents a stark contrast with a Police Officer facing down a rabid Muslim infiltrator which presents strength, fraternity (as in a member of a common man or similar attribute) and involvement in the cause (as the Muslim is right there).  The idea is to present Soros, et al., as completely unqualified to handle the situation as they’re either completely distant from the cause (for whatever reasons), unqualified (due to conflicts in abilities and skills, ex: finance versus military training) or any other factor which promotes division between Soros and the viewer while simultaneously casting our chosen heroes with a positive (strong, competent, “one of us”) image.

    As a bonus, both the Armchair and Action Philanthropist memes can be presented to different groups with which the memes can resonate and influence the most.  Armchair Philanthropists can be presented to those who view the extremely wealthy with distrust while the Action Philanthropists can be distributed to involved activists.  Thus, the possibility exists that both series of memes will meet “in the middle” as the image of Soros fades in popularity the image of Police Officer rises.  Now, organizations which George Soros funds can be targeted while those which support our heroes can be enhanced.

    Furthermore, this need not exist in a binary fashion.  Other players in the game can be created (ex: the Muslim Infiltrator, the Bribed Politician, the Everyman) to further enhance the scenario.  Once enough pieces evolve it may become a situation where people play a game that you rigged in its favor, where every character, though different, serves an overarching objective.

    Based on this article, both Jellybism and Bonoism is words that can be memed into existance. The best would of course be Bonoism, but the academic wants show how schooled he is, so Jellybism and Telescopic Philanthropy it is.
