On Killing: What is it good for

September 25, 2013

Unlike social games and domination, which is good for manipulating human resources to get things done (your way), killing does not accomplish social goals. It just destroys the existence of something you don’t want to exist: namely the free will of this proto bio form of life.

Atrocities, propaganda, psychological warfare before or after killing, like the way Palestinians mutilate the live or dead bodies of IDF soldiers, is useful on a social level, in intimidating or manipulating enemy morale. But the killing itself only serves the purpose of terminating something. There is no need for negotiations, no need to cooperate with an enemy that does not exist, and thus no need to talk to or understand that which does not exist.

Dave Grossman‘s On Killing presents a number of claims with a number of different variations and examples backing his concepts up.

This relates to H2H training in a few ways. First, you have to be accustomed to making the right neural links in your brain for the situation at hand. By that I don’t mean conditioning your body to hit or use techniques. The pure intent is what your body pays attention to in life and death situations. That which you truly value. If in a fight, you truly value your life and wish to avoid hate and conflict, then you will avoid it. You will walk backwards as you try to punch forwards, accomplishing nothing productive as 1 cancels out 2. In a life or death situation, if you are forced to make the decision between escape or fight, and you choose fight, what happens when you don’t want to fight, have never thought about killing another person, and view killing and violence as evil? If those are your true beliefs, then your instincts will stall, you will freeze, because your survival instincts will try to override your identity. (Like a hard disk reformatting itself) If you value survival more, the survival instincts kick in and we have killing. If you don’t know, you freeze and have an internal debate until you are dead. If you decide that society’s rules are more important than your life, then you may discard fighting and try to escape or use only “proportional force allowed to you by society”. So you will be getting murdered, while the police come up afterwards to clean up your body: assisted suicide, essentially.

There are also other responses like hiding/staying still to avoid death: submission postures that tell the other human that you surrender and offer no threat, hoping they won’t kill you then. Generally that is supposed to work, but these days belief and conditioning have made it easier to pull the trigger.

Generally speaking, humans, me included, feel stress when other humans reject our humanity or have come to hate us, even though we have done nothing against them. Many people abhor this kind of conflict and friction so much that they do anything to avoid it. Women are notorious for not rocking the boat and agreeing with the group, even though they don’t like what the group is saying. This kind of sensitivity, though, in males can cause the male to challenge people to duels and try to kill them, because people who are hostile to you are enemies. Human fear and anger is contagious. When people are hated, they worry about their social status and whether the group will exile them and rob them of their chances to survive. So that’s why people care about “what other people think”. If you think humans hating you in society doesn’t affect you, consider what happened when the KKK lynched blacks for voting Republican and some religious village leaders burned and drowned witches. Do not underestimate what the mob will do when they feel like it. They are much more than you, as an individual, can counter.

In a situation where a criminal threatens your life, property, loved ones, or your health, you will often times need to use violence against them. But even if you decide to run, you may always regret that you left your kid or family to die. Or you may regret your powerlessness at not being able to protect your property, which is another way of saying you also won’t be able to protect yourself or your family. If your property is unimportant even though you own it, then is not your body also unimportant because you own it? Property can be replaced/repaired, yes, but rape doesn’t require the replacement of women either. Just because something can be repaired, doesn’t mean humans feel zero guilt from losing it, even if they know they can replace it. In a situation where you successfully fight back using violence, you may also come to regret being so successful, since society’s rules say that violence is only for villains and evil people to use. So you will have gained something from the tool of violence, but you now worry about society claiming that your actions were ethically wrong or illegal. You worry that you will be hated and treated as a monster, not a hero. So no matter what you choose, there will be consequences. Killology studies how this fear of society or social repercussions causes PTSD, making people resistant to killing (pulling the trigger), and ends up with good people dying because they were having internal monologue debates on the subject when they didn’t have the time to do so.

Humans are great at rationalizations, so people will always attempt to rationalize why their actions were just or right. If this rationalization veers too far from the facts or reality, then you have self deception. And if it is completely contradictory of itself, within itself, and with reality, then you have a larger problem.

In order to avoid all this mental and spiritual pain, the solution I recommend is that each and everyone decide for themselves, sooner or later, what they will kill for and what they will die. As simple as that. Make your decision before you need to use violence, before you get PTSD, before you get in trouble with society, your family, or the law. This way you can make objective, non biased judgments concerning your future. Trying to make it after feeling the guilt of killing people, or not killing them, letting your friends and loved ones die, or something else horrible, won’t do you much good. Having to repair your own soul is not as productive as protecting it in the first place. Just as psychologically treating rape and torture victims is not as easy as preventing them from being targets in the first place.

What and who are you going to kill? For what reason? Why is it correct and right to do so? Is it right only because society and civilization says it is right, or is it right because you yourself believe and choose to do so?

Humans function under a number of assumptions, chains developed by society to suppress and control human behavior. Taboos against sex, killing, cannibalism, etc. These are designed to protect humans and allow human cooperation and thus survival in the wild. If you do not question yourself, if you do not find your soul and spirit, if you merely follow orders and allow others to decide for you what is right and wrong, you may come to regret it when after you’ve done as you have been told, and realize that you want a second chance.

Don’t hope for second chances, get it right the first time. Use the time you have wisely, and try to avoid spending decades regretting what you did or didn’t do in battle, war, or a life and death conflict. Read about the experiences of your seniors, so that you can learn to accept your own emotions and forgive your own emotions. Learn to accept your own heart and forge your own identity, so you can weather the shocks of the enemy. Learn about what enemies of humanity do to humans, so that emotional shock doesn’t cripple your thinking and your reflexes. Instead of trying to deal with all this pain, confusion, and hesitation over killing and dying, do it now before you are forced to participate.

There are many methods for training people, but this one might be called operant conditioning instead of classical conditioning. Imagine an enemy, imagine what he would have to do before you consciously remove society’s limiters on you, and then act out + visualize your movements. Repeat as needed. While on a street, consider how you would ambush and kill the person that walked past you. Imagine and simulate it out, then insert your will and consciously decide not to do it because they are 1. not a threat and 2. have not crossed your lines (triggers). If you feel horror, if you feel uncomfortable, if you feel sick, if you are afraid of being blamed by society, this is the limiter working. This is what you would feel in a violent encounter, except 1000x worse. This is the combat freeze that kills many, who cannot bring themselves to pull the trigger because they are still debating with themselves over what is right and what is wrong.

Your emotions do not know what is right. Your logick does not know what is right. Only your survival instincts know what is right, in the time that exists now. Learn to trust your survival instincts. But remember this, your survival instincts don’t care about killing people, their feelings, your feelings, or any of that. You may find that your survival instincts is a “machine” and acts like one. Or you may find you have no memory of what you did and thus, if you can’t remember, how do you control it? How do you not just go berserk and kill your spouse when you black out? So people often don’t trust their survival instincts and thus get killed. Your survival instincts are part of you. If you are incompetent, it will take over using fear as the method.

So make sure you have no doubts, in your heart of hearts. Game out situations, game out rules and variations, and try to think. Think of what you will do and whether you will accept the consequences. If you don’t like doing something, then don’t. Accept the consequences of not doing something, just as you accept the consequences of using food as energy. That bacon was once alive and not wanting to die, you know.

As for society, following the law is enough to grant you society’s forgiveness. But it’s up to you whether you want to put society’s rules above your own or ignore it entirely. Personally, society’s rules are too corrupt for me to consider giving it too high a position. If I kill or save someone’s life, it will be because I decided it is just to do so. It won’t be because movies, tv, civilization, or society’s leaders told me it was okay to do so. I will follow society’s rules up to a point. But suicide is out of the question. I will survive and also obey the laws, in order to prevent society from getting rid of me. Whether I lose to a criminal or to a prosecuting attorney, doesn’t matter. Both are bad ends. Strategy thus requires me to defeat all my opponents, no matter who they are. Thus that requires preparation, quick thinking, and tactical judgments.

If other people hate you at work or want to pull you down, humans will feel anxiety at the loss of their social position. This is natural. Only sociopaths have difficulties relating to anxiety over social status. But what if you conditioned yourself to think of such people differently? What if they were not human and thus not subject to human standards? Would not the stress disappear. This is how killers are conditioned. Killing is a mental exercise, it does not particularly require physical abilities, just the intent. Of course having tools does help the job along. Guilt and regret often comes when you do violence to a person, because you think they aren’t a person, then afterwards you realize they were a human just like you. Thus, regret and guilt occurs. So if a person isn’t human, does that mean we get to kill them without guilt, like we step on ants? That depends. What is the control, what is the limiter here if society’s rules do not exist? The limiter is merely this: your will. What do you decide to do and why do you decide to do it. If you find insects and animals, do you just take out your gun/sword and slaughter them for fun and giggles?

Why do you not do so, is it because of the law? Is it because of your neighbors? Is it because it is not fun?

For me, I don’t do so because it is UNNECESSARY. Thus expending my energy to kill life is a detriment to my own survival and resources. Hide what you got it, you might need it when they come for ya. If you have the power to do things, but don’t it, there’s a reason. If the only reason you have is because ‘other people stop me from doing so’ then the time you are not constrained by other people, you then become a sociopath. Which is technically not good.

Just because someone isn’t human, with an individual identity and free will (you can’t convince them or understand them), does not mean they need to die. It does not mean you need to hate them. It just means being hated by a pen (tool) doesn’t matter to you. Things that don’t have free will, humans don’t need to care about. They make rational decisions about them.

In this fashion, soldiers have been conditioned to do the job society and country gave them, blowing away targets merely because they need to be eliminated. That is the mission, that will protect their battle buddies, and it is what needs to be done. The targets are people, yet they are not human, just tools or objectives to be eliminated.

Because if you ever doubt this, look at the corpse you made and realize that it is no longer human, it is just a corpse. If you are going to kill someone, recognizing their humanity is the same thing as saying “I don’t want to kill them” or “I can stop now, they are still alive”. By refusing to recognize the humanity of your targets, you kill them in your mind, but refrain from atrocity cruelty known to war criminals. Even if you have never pulled the trigger, refusing to acknowledge a target’s humanity, constructing operant conditioning methods for when you pull the trigger, means you have already, in your mind, killed that person. He is already dead, thus not human, and will be merely a corpse after you pull the trigger. All the words are in the software, it only needs to be printed out. All you have to do is press the print button.

Of course there are other rationalizations and thoughts. You could think something like “he’s trying to kill us, so being human requires me to defend myself. I do not consciously hate him or want to kill him, but I do want to live and thus that requires his death. He may be human before, but since I can’t communicate with him and make him stop, he must be terminated.”

No matter how you choose to deal with the conflict, you have to have a reason. Your own reason, one your heart can accept. If you lack a reason or your reason is weak, your heart will destroy itself from internal doubts.

Killing a person means accepting all the hate, all the enmity, they will ever have for you, as well as the hate and forever enmity of their loved ones. Killing someone steals all that they have, all that they are, all that they will ever be, in order for you to benefit personally.

If that is not something you can accept, if you don’t wish to do so, then don’t do it. Train yourself in violence to a high enough level you can incapacitate someone without killing them. But to do so, you have to accept dying yourself. If you don’t accept killing them, then your will must be substituted by the will to accept your own death. Human actions require a will, from a heart.

The Ancient Sages killed when necessary, healed and saved lives when they could. It is precisely because they spent so much effort preserving life, that they could kill without regret or fear of divine/societal punishment. Sociopaths have killed their emotions and heart, but the rest of us are only allowed to temporarily drop those social limiters. They will come back, often times to haunt us, if we take them off without appropriate justifications.

“Cause pain before you injure. Injure before you maim. Maim before you kill. And if you must kill, make it a clean kill. Squeeze every drop of life from the opponent. Because life is so precious, it cannot be wasted, even in death.”

“Let him cut your skin, and you cut his flesh. Let him cut your flesh, and you cut his bones. Let him cut your bones, and you cut off his life.”

The Japanese had a long time to deal with these things.

Decide sooner rather than later, what you will kill for and what you will die for. It will be too late once you are stuck in reach of the enemy. This is the armor of the mind and soul, when one’s mind itself becomes the weapon, and the body merely the external manifestation of an artist’s imagination.

Individual Control vs Others Controlling You

September 24, 2013

Try this read out.

It is not that they wish to control guns, there is different motive at work here. I mentioned before how WACO, SWAT team militarization training with none of the social controls, is proof that people don’t particularly care about gun control. Certainly not the ATF or Eric Holder, selling weapons to Mexican drug cartels. What they care about is people control. And this is why.

Tai Chi Power Generation

September 23, 2013

One instructor told me that Taiji is a door hinge and he wasn’t joking.

But I didn’t really want to talk about Taiji, but rather how marksmanship for modern shooters compared to the muscle control of internal Chinese arts like Taiji, Xingyi, and Pakua.

So after you get a good look at this, basically imagine if you stuck your finger in the middle of that steel trap and then pushed the door it was attached to with a finger. How much force would you feel in the finger trapped by the steel teeth? Less or more than the power you inputted with your pushing finger?

This is the power of internal arts. In order to acquire, understand, and issue this power, you must have enough muscle control to hit the bullseye at the maximum effective range of your firearm, while shooting from the hip. Or at least enough muscle control to modulate breathing and only command the trigger finger to activate.

In H2H arts, power comes from the hips and body’s internal structure as well as external structure. For a gun, all the power comes from the internal construction and combustion energy, with only accuracy being applied externally. In order to apply that external accuracy control well, a human needs to be able to control his body’s autonomic processes via breathing and excellent muscle control/relaxation/stillness. For long range targets, an element of instinct when it comes to zeroing, wind, and bullet drop will also come into play.

All of these elements are utilized in H2H fighting techniques. The internal art just draws the power internally, rather than externally. The door + hinge is the body’s bones and nerves, specifically anchored on the joints like the hip joints, knees, and spinal curvature. The muscles are the exploding powder and trigger. The mind is the killer.

Xingyi prioritizes linear movement, in lines, so is probably the most familiar to a fighter that uses external power sources or a straight shooter.

Pakua engages in circular movements.

Taiji Chuan combines lines and circles to form a drill, the rotating bullet in a rifle.

Since many Westerners, including Americans, have a difficult time visualizing Eastern translations and mythical voodoo, perhaps a more Western analogy would help them more. Even though many Americans are absolutely ignorant of how guns work and what killing is about. Even though many in the international community consider Americans warmongers and as the country of the gun. It is both a term of insult if they are enemies as well as a term of respect from those who have had their countries invaded and their people enslaved: given how America has not allowed a single foreign hostile force on its soil since US Civil War I.

So Western engineers, study door hinges and then go out and conquer those who use muscles as power. For gravity, mass, inertial, and mechanical leverage are much more powerful than puny human muscles that can only use a pulley system.

A Taiji master can absorb and suppress incoming force of a thousand pounds, using little more than a few ounces of pressure per tick. Then transfer the incoming force to the other side, the hinge, and explode an enemy’s internal organs while sending them 1 or 2 stories up in the air.

Magick? Probably.

That would have been just as magickal to those living 2 centuries ago.

Btw, the history channel just had some blood bag burst in mid air. A 50 caliber round will make a human torso explode, limbs flying every way. There’s not just a big hole in the back. There is “no back” and “no torso” left. If the round hits high on the head or neck (due to wind), then you might have half a stump of a torso left. Just for those wondering.

(Bonus Link)

The center line of the human body is essentially the spinal curve and the center of gravity is generally in the gut or hips, different for almost everyone. Thus by using the length of the limbs, the distance from the line of the body, this allows “torque”. What holds the hinge in place is thus the “root” to the ground. A hinge is no good if it is just floating in water or air. Those with no root or who lose their root, cannot mechanically leverage incoming force into outgoing force via a multiplier. It’s not magick, it’s just basic human physics, applied to the human anatomy.

Force Cantrithor Book Review

September 23, 2013

Got this for 3 dollars on Amazon kindle.

The reviews sounded interesting and the plot was new to me as well. So I decided to give it a go.

I was not disappointed. Most of the material revolves around the special abilities of the protagonist, though there are other point of views. It really hits well upon the metaphysical concepts in philosophy and some epistemological methods as well. Basically, what is real, what is true, and how do you tell the difference?

What is the nature of existence, the universe, and man? That line can encapsulate much of the theme of the book.

The characters are very human, you won’t get much TV tropes concerning the out of control loose cannon police officer that always knows what’s just. Nor will you see the corrupt, power mad military officer or authority figure. There’s no immature kids here who can only form an identity by denying existing social and power structures. These aren’t just tropes of decadent and poisonous Western cultural transmission, but they are horrible pieces of “art”, if you can call it that.

Much of Hollywood’s propaganda effect comes from making people watch villains do horrible things to innocent people, then use X, Y, and Z to obstruct the hero from taking revenge. X, Y, Z being whatever the audience is supposed to hate, mistrust, and stop believing in. This is an obvious attempt at influencing the mind of the weak, which is why I’m glad I detected none of those influences in this book. Many of the independent authors of the kindle and ebook self publishing community are free of much of the evil miasma of popular Western culture, amazingly enough.

Naval Yard murders

September 23, 2013

“Let them die, Stand Down.”

The same message that was given to the QRF that wanted to respond to American requests for help in Libya.

The only thing SWAT teams are good for seems to be killing people in their homes as they do no knock raids and no warrant searches.

“The bottom line is you point a gun at a deputy or police officer, you’re going to get shot,” said Lt. Herrell in a different video interview that appeared nationally on Yahoo News.

Even if they got the wrong address and broke into the home of a regular civilian. It’s still your fault if you resist the aristocrats.

And the black thug life in inner cities? That’s coming along nicely with the murder of an Australian.

I get the impression that various factions of the Leftist alliance are creating loyalty tests, conditioning test trials, of their “shock troops” to be used at a later date and time of their choosing.

Starbucks New CEO Directive on Guns

September 19, 2013

To be clear: we do not want these events in our stores. Some anti-gun activists have also played a role in ratcheting up the rhetoric and friction, including soliciting and confronting our customers and partners.

Am I perhaps the only one that thinks if it wasn’t for the anti gun activists harassing the customers (a known union and thug technique), the CEO might not have much of a problem with people holding their private events in their affiliated stores?

Also the common counter propaganda line I see is that the organizations did not have an agreement with Starbucks to hold their meetings. While they may not have had agreement with the CEO, Starbucks stores aren’t run by the CEO. Who is to say that individual agreements weren’t made between store owners and affiliates?

That in fact, this directive is to force Starbucks’ own employees to toe the line, in order to appease anti gun activists.

Americans are so soft some communist agit prop will make them bend knee. Just imagine what actual threats and Islamic violence would do. They are so weak, I don’t think they even deserve to exist, profit or no profit.

The Japanese Constitution partially written by Americans

September 12, 2013

One of the reasons why foreigners think Americans are full of hypocrites, is a hypocritically excessively martial people with delusions of justice and being the world police, is because of things like that.

If you had lived in a nation that was only allowed to defend themselves using “self defense”, and had to rely on American military protection for everything else, and that this protection itself keeps your Constitution the way it was when Americans wrote it… wouldn’t you start believing in anti American propaganda too?

Where’s the difference between anti American and “pro patriotism” emotions then?

It’s something Americans will have to fix by themselves, in their own country, before any bombs overseas will change people’s hearts and minds. Self sufficiency is an American value and virtue, but not an American political value. And it is reflected in how American foreign policy is enforced by military and economic might overseas.
