It’s natural for children to fight. Children fight in all times, all places and all classes. Some children grow up to become obsessed with weapons, and learning how to assert themselves using those. A small minority of children come to realise that they can put a wall of fighters between them and their enemies. This small minority grows up to become the magicians of the realm of silver.
The lower a man’s rank in the great dominance hierarchy that is our society, the more he will use himself as a weapon. Most men fall within the realm of iron, in which whoever can personally kick the most arse is the most highly ranked. But the leaders of men, those who can distinguish themselves above the herd through the demonstration of some merit, soon gain the loyalty of multiple arse-kickers. In doing so, they enter the realm of silver.
The realm of silver is all about directing the men of iron. If the men of iron are the tools, the men of silver are the hand that guides them. Every man of iron eventually realises that kicking arse is far easier than figuring out whose arse needs to be kicked. That latter task requires a great deal of mental energy, and so it’s outsourced to the man of silver.
In order to maintain his position in the realm of silver, the silver magician needs a unifying narrative. This is a story or myth that serves as a rallying call to those under his influence. It is the metaphysical equivalent of a standard. This unifying narrative imposes order upon a mass of people by regimenting their minds in the same direction.
Those who adopt a narrative from above, without thinking about it, become the sheeple. In this context, it doesn’t matter what the narrative is. In any case, the narrative will always act as a call to solidarity on behalf of some group that considers itself under attack. This group, brought to order under the narrative of one or more silver magicians, is the herd (of sheeple).
The sheeple get milked and fleeced by their ruler, and, at the worst of times, they also get butchered.
As mentioned above, the higher a person’s rank in the great dominance hierarchy, the more they will use other people as tools. Those at the top of the system use people who themselves use people. The king will have a personal herd of aristocrats who themselves each control a herd of underlings. This makes the king a mercury magician, above the realm of silver but still subordinate to influence from the realm of gold.
The ruling class, then, use herds of sheeple against each other. The larger and more aggressive the herd, the more political power its master has. Political influence begins when a person can muster a herd. A gangbanger who can bring twenty loyal men together loses to the chieftain who can muster a hundred, who loses in turn to the warlord who can muster half a thousand.
Many of the clearest examples of this can be seen in religious conflict, such as when Hypatia was murdered by a mob of Christians enraged by a shit-stirrer named Peter. Any priest of true standing ought to be able to whip up a mob willing to destroy any blasphemer or heretic the priest points to. It was through wielding such mobs as weapons that the Roman Catholic Church enforced their 1,200-year reign of terror.
Cancel culture, as described in Clown World Chronicles, is just a modern version of this phenomenon. When New Zealand Human Rights Commissioner Paul Hunt used his platform in the mainstream media to encourage baizuos to contact TradeMe and tell them that the ‘It’s Okay To Be White’ t-shirts sold by VJM Publishing were racist, and succeeded in getting them delisted, it was little different to how religious leaders historically silenced wrongthinkers by stoking mobs against them.
The way to make people into sheeple is to control their minds. This can be achieved either quantitatively, through repetition and brainwashing, or qualitatively, through logical and rational argumentation, or both. In practice, the more a herd is organised by quantity the dumber and larger it will be, and the more it is organised by quality the smarter and smaller it will be.
The reason why the Jews have historically held so much power is that they have had a slave army of hundreds of millions of sheeple known as Christians, who believe that Jews have been chosen by God to enlighten the world. The average Christian will defend Jews at all opportunity, will promote Jews ahead of his own kind and will follow directions from a Jew as if it was the Word of God.
The beauty of modern representative techno-democracy is that you can build up a herd by mutual consent. It’s possible to talk to people online until some of them come to look up to you and, if this is done for long enough, you will sooner or later have your own herd. The degree to which this herd will obey you is a function of the degree of solidarity they have with you, but that’s a subject for another essay.
The ugliness of modern representative democracy is that building up a herd mostly comes down to control of the apparatus of propaganda, and that mostly comes down to television control, and that mostly comes down to money. Effectively, the more money you have, the more you can buy loyalty. All it takes is for you to pay a few dozen journalists to tell their sheeple that you are the next big thing, and that’s usually enough to make it so.
The simple way to protect yourself from becoming a sheeple is to ask yourself, every time a media figure tells you something, “Who owns this person?” Almost inevitably, the media figure turns out to be taking a wage from an editor who tells them what they can say, and that editor is themselves taking a wage from an owner who tells them what they can say that their journalists can say.
The more complicated way is to seek out gold magicians and take a narrative from them instead.
