    The Neverending Apocalypse; Why Duginism is so Attractive to Dogebois, Et Cetera 

    I write this from my amazingly cool (and owned, not rented) new house, with my amazingly cool wife, my amazingly cool family, amazingly cool doggo and… the cat.

    I am just writing thoughts, because my brain is so far behind in organizing things that I am sort of moving in some sort of fugue state between shifts at my new job and just existing in my new home, which is still a weird thing to me. I haven’t done a video, haven’t fought a heretic, haven’t done much in the way of Church… in short I haven’t done much of being myself. But I have watched a lot of videos and that definitely counts for something.

    Anyone born past the late 70’s remember Cliff Richard? I didn’t either. I just remembered a lyric– “it’s so funny that we don’t talk anymore”– and thinking that lyric was hilarious decades after hearing it in childhood, looked up what I thought would be a one-hit wonder, and finding one of the biggest-selling recording artists of all time that I– and probably you– never heard of. Why? Because I am an American and most people I talk to are American, and in America before the Internet, Cliff Richard was basically a minor celebrity while in the rest of the world he was in fact super-famous. Kind of like how David Hasselhoff is known in Europe for his singing, not his acting. But I digress.

    I can’t stop loving the movie Free Guy, an inversion of The Matrix that was– shockingly and probably with more nefarious purposes– made by Disney. (I was going to write an essay about that instead. Be grateful I was still in my semi-coma last week.) Free Guy was so much better than The Matrix because the humans in both movies were pretty much trash, but the AI was at least as lovable as our buddy Google in the former. Expect the Wachowski brothers to make a Matrix movie which reinforces the awfulness (RED PILLS FOR EVERYONE). Why, it’s coming in December! Even the promo soundtrack is appropriately boomer. (No, I’m not linking it.)

    Ecumenism has few outcomes if we look at it statistically. Unlike your typical heresy such as Arianism, it has little real attractiveness to real people because it has no apocalyptic ending that doesn’t look like a bad Woodstock ripoff; that said, it is acceptable to the pansexuals who comprise The Elite™ of the pantheon of current human existence because, like the leaders of the Ecumenism themselves, they don’t believe in anything. Because of this simple fact, the outcome of such a pathetic belief system is already doomed– eventually Christians wake up, all the other less useful religions wake up, and everyone takes up arms against each other. It’s just what humans do. We can cOeXi$t but that’s not ecumenism per se, that’s just basic survival. (And some of those folks will Allahu Akbar their neighbors in an explosion, as it’s been for centuries.) But those involved with ecumenism (for and against, but still on the gameboard, unlike yours truly and anyone else who doesn’t take ecumenists seriously anymore) have to either accept the “council of religions” no one believes in and turn it into some sort of dangerous super-antichrist type, so mix that in with religiously agnostic AI and THE DANGERS OF TECHNOLOGY and now the “Great Satan” must be AI itself, which had the unfortunate circumstance of rising in countries where the “Christians” in question were mostly illiterate rubes or almost non-existent at the time.

    Thus, rather than see the Antichrist nature of stuff like the vaccines the way they think about it on Athos (just kidding, they’re not arresting COVID-doubting Athonites or anything), these people are focused on giving credence to the mental masturbations of people who want to make us really believe in stuff like being in a simulation to help us one day live in a simulation, as well as the antidote: a return to “agrarianism” in near-apocalyptic terms (think about it: do you own a house? Are you farming right now? I know the answer: it’s no, because if you were, you’d be too busy counting your victories to take these people seriously or read this, probably linked from Gab or Minds.) “Traditionalists” (lol) like Dugin are actually pro-COVID. They need to make up a Great Satan because they don’t really believe in one. The Great Satan is technology, and here is their Gospel:

    And both ecumenists and anti-ecumenists stuck inside the gameboard can play interchanging “hero” and “villain” while the rest of the world ignores them. To these people and the Dogebois who love them, earth is like that claymation cartoon I can’t find where humanity goes from listening to nature and playing simple instruments to getting louder and then getting to rock music and starting off atomic bombs blowing up everything until finally the few that are left are just listening to nature and playing simple instruments.

    As far as reality goes, however, the ecumenists actually seem to be digging themselves deeper to where, outside of a few dumb monuments founded by rich Muslims who own football teams (the real big “ecumenical” stuff is owned by Rome), their decline seems to me inevitable. Besides the absolutism of the gene-therapy-as-called-vaccine and “science” (I never, ever, thought we’d reach a point where putting “science” in quotes could actually make MODERN SCIENCE a subject of mockery, but here we are) only a decided majority in World Orthodoxy, despite a dearth of mitres (and a slight majority among True Orthodox, with a few more mitres) are concerned about the ramifications of blind obedience to secular states demanding their citizens inject themselves with unknown living ingredients synthesized by pharmaceutical companies which — coincidentally– have also paid out billions internationally for killing lots of people.

    Meanwhile, in the tech war, Orthodox Christians– and Christians in general– are far behind but at least we’re aware of it now. This is no accident: we confused technological progress (which is naturally agnostic) with the people behind said progress (who generally are not agnostic, and decidedly not pro-Christian). If you are a Christian, you are a bad guy to Big Tech (which you should embrace anyway.) It’s worth noting that I am not being Trumpian on this point: Gab’s Andrew Torba lost access to the Visa network long before “the insurrection”. Unfortunately this can hurt missionary progress: this means that Islamic propaganda has sway among the liberal tech elite, which means Islamic propaganda gets promoted, which is inadvertently great for us, because nothing makes Christianity look good better than Islam.

    In the midst of the chaos, I have– even among those dear to me– recently been accused of a sort of amillennialism, a skeptic of the obvious truth of the imminent reign of Antichrist, who will probably– despite all the teachings of the Fathers to the contrary– look like a tech nerd. Because I cannot humanly see a reason to see the collapse of America as synonymous with the collapse of earth, despite my happening to live in America, I ignorantly opine that maybe we can see signs of the reign of Antichrist because we have been seeing signs of the reign of Antichrist for centuries. Did the Internet really bring us closer to Antichrist than, say, the printing press? How about the barcode system everybody uses in literally almost every store that isn’t a farmer’s market– that has 666 baked into it? Isn’t it possible that we are careening towards the reign of Antichrist at least as quickly as 1980? Or 1580? Or 1080? Or… 80? And that we just happen to be closer?

    Isn’t there at least the possibility that while we muse about the lives of perceived one-hit wonders like Cliff Richard that the real people we perceive as such are living wildly successful lives without us? And if that’s true, since we don’t comprise 2/3 of the inhabited earth we are in fact seeing what we think is the end of the universe from the comparatively insignificant lens of the end of the Empire we used to live in, and are in fact not simply witness to a period of destruction of the past, but are unwittingly engaged in an ideological war over our future, one in which we finally realize we weren’t in charge of anything except ourselves anyway?

    Rather instead, let’s get ourselves to Church.

    Should I start a forum on this thing? Make it useful?
