Trust the plan. For four years, this simple three-word phrase paralysed all resistance to the Establishment. It was repeated over and over by followers of QAnon, a legendary poster on various underground imageboards, until it became a mantra. Those who repeated it seemed to be privy to some important secret plan to save the world.
Donald Trump came to power in 2016 on the promise of being an anti-Establishment President. The original three-word phrase, often spoken by him, was “Drain the Swamp”. Trump would drain the festering swamp that was Washington D.C. politics by ridding it of corruption. All we had to do was vote him into power and then wait for the wheels of justice to turn.
To that end, Trump was apparently working with military intelligence services to orchestrate a mass arrest of all the corrupt elements of the American Establishment. Trump supporters were led to believe that several tens of thousands of sealed indictments existed and, when the day came, these would all be unsealed and the bad guys would all be arrested.
Early in 2017 it started to dawn on people that Trump either couldn’t, or wouldn’t, do anything about the corruption in Washington. He got into power and then… nothing happened. Soon after that, people started asking themselves if they’d been had.
In order to quench the rising discontent caused by Trump’s inaction, a psyop known as the QAnon LARP was put into action. It was launched upon the world in October 2017, with a semi-plausible horseshit story about how Hillary Clinton was about to be arrested. This story renewed hope that the international pedophile cabal might soon be brought to justice.
From this date, until Joe Biden assumed the American Presidency in 2021, imageboards were inundated with posts from a mysterious figure named Q. Many supposed Q to be a high-ranking intelligence officer, as Q apparently revealed classified information in their posts, known as “Q drops”. Q’s posts all furthered the idea that mass arrests were imminent.
The “trust the plan” narrative played a crucial role here. By constantly hearing this phrase repeated, many people came to be convinced that not only was there a plan, but also that it was a wise plan and that it was in the process of execution. It seemed that, out there in the shadows, good guys with white hats were closing the noose around the bad guys with the black hats. All we had to do was lend our moral support to the plan and to not interfere.
The ultimate effect of getting people to wait on some vague plan was paralysis. Any time that someone suggested taking some kind of action, others would bleat “trust the plan”, and all progress would be neutralised. There was no reason to take any action oneself if the white hats had everything under control. In such a case, it would be better to sit back and not interfere.
The QAnon LARP sucked in an enormous number of Christians. This is probably due to the fact that it targeted the same mentality that predatory Christian preachers target: the smug, self-righteous delusion that one is privy to secret knowledge. As the Christians have passively waited for Jesus to return, instead of taking action, so have the Q cultists passively waited for their own messiah figure.
Now Trump is gone, and Q is heard from no more. Most Q cultists have, by now, realised that they were taken for fools.
The whole QAnon LARP bears a close resemblance to another psyop from almost a century previous – Operation Trust. This was a counterintelligence operation conducted in the early days of the Soviet Union.
The goal of Operation Trust was to convince monarchist forces, who had recently been ousted from power in the Bolshevik Revolution, to believe that anti-Bolshevik forces were organising and were about to stage a counter-revolution. These monarchist forces were convinced that their allies were organising behind the scenes and would take action at any moment. As such, it was best not to interfere.
In reality, the Bolsheviks were strengthening their position, using the delay to purge monarchists from the civil service and the security forces. By the time the monarchists got wise to the ruse, it was too late. The Bolsheviks had consolidated their control, condemning the Soviet people to the Holodomor and the horrors of the Gulag Archipelago.
The QAnon psyop was no doubt conducted for similar reasons, and appears to have achieved a similar effect. In the belief that nationalist forces were about to strike against the globalists, the actual nationalist forces did nothing, and squandered the opportunity they had from Donald Trump occupying the American Presidency. With the globalist Joe Biden now in charge, the real noose – that around our necks – will tighten.
The ceremonies before an All Blacks match are an essential part of setting the mood to enjoy the theatre. But many people sing along to the words of the Maori version of the national anthem without knowing what it means. I don’t sing the words to the Maori version of the national anthem because they are an insult to my people.
The God of Nations referenced in the English version of the national anthem is not the same as the God of Abraham. The English version of the national anthem was written by Thomas Bracken, a Freemason, and as such the God referenced is the true divinity beyond all cultures. It is not Yahweh, the God of the Jews.
Governor George Grey commissioned a Maori translation of Bracken’s poem in 1878. This was performed by Thomas Henry Smith, an English immigrant and a Christian. Being Christian, and following the Christian imperative to destroy all other spiritual and religious traditions, Smith took the opportunity to erase all reference to God in his translation and to replace it with reference to Yahweh.
Now why would I, as a person who does not worship Yahweh, sing an entreaty to the Jewish God?
As a Ngati Porou, being asked to sing a song about Jehovah is an insult. It was in the name of Jehovah that the spiritual traditions of the Maori people were destroyed and replaced with base superstition. Early Christian missionaries eradicated all knowledge of Io Matua Kore, the god of this part of the world, to replace it with knowledge of Yahweh, the god of a foreign land.
This was a great crime, and one which has never been acknowledged, much less made up for.
I would happily sing the Maori national anthem if it were replaced by a entreaty that praised Io Matua Kore instead of the God of the Jews. The Maori version of the New Zealand national anthem needs to be rewritten, preferably by a Maori and not an English immigrant, and in such a way that removes reference to the God of the Jews and replaces it with the God of Aotearoa.
Then I would sing the Maori version of the national anthem with pride.
The following essay expounds an alt-centrist way of conceptualising political space. The fundamental idea is that the Will of the Divine rules over all the material world, and before this mighty Will stand 24 governors, each one of which corresponds to one of the elementary political positions.
The original conception of political space speaks of a monarchist right and a republican left. This conception dates back to the French Revolution and the composition of the then government, in which supporters of the monarchy sat on the right wing of the French National Assembly while supporters of reform sat on the left wing.
Making the crudest possible distinction, political space is divided into a right wing that wishes to maintain power and privilege and a left wing that wants power and privilege redistributed. These two wings, along with the centre that tries to get them to co-operate, constitute the first three powers before the throne.
In modern Western democracies, this post-monarchical arrangement has evolved into the Establishment. Today, the entirety of the leadership of both the left and the right is comprised of the same ruling class that leads the centre. Economic imperatives have overridden all other concerns; status quo or change matters not at all.
In response to this oligarchical arrangement has risen the anti-Establishment. It first arose in the form of the alternative right that took control of Central Europe after World War I. In the aftermath of World War II rose the alternative left, which currently exerts more social power than any other position. Today the alternative centre is rising.
This political hexad (of the Establishment, the anti-Establishment, and the three divisions of each) has been discussed at length in The Five Rejections and The Five Acceptances. It constitutes the basic foundation of alt centrist thought.
Each of these six positions can themselves be divided into four attitudes. These attitudes answer the two basic political questions, which are essentially: who gets it? and how hard?
Answering the question of “who gets it” divides the six positions into two further positions each: nationalists and globalists.
The nationalists are those who identify with a particular nation, and who believe that the nation is the natural organisational unit of the world stage. They believe that benefits such as welfare ought to be reserved for members of the nation, and that questions around immigration and defence ought to be settled with a view to the benefit of the nation. In short, they believe that only the nation should “get it” (the rewards of the nation’s operation).
The globalists believe that anyone can get it. Globalists have no time for the argument that the resources of the nation belong to the nation. Their position is that any resource, anywhere, is the property of whoever pays to own it. That anyone risked their lives defending those resources in the past is irrelevant. Globalists owe no loyalty to any land or nation.
The majority of the Establishment is globalist right now, but that isn’t inevitable. There are nationalist sentiments within all three Establishment positions – the monarchist right considers itself the representative of its nation, the working-class left wants national borders to prevent the importation of cheap labour from driving down wages, and the rent-seeking centre wants to lock down the national market against foreign competition.
Answering the question of “how hard do they get it” divides the above twelve positions into two further positions each: authoritarians and libertarians.
The authoritarians argue that people ought to get it hard. They don’t care about freedom as a virtue. Authoritarians tend to be verticalists, in that they believe the natural organisational model of the human species is a dominance hierarchy in which the upper ranks have complete authority over the lower ones.
The libertarians, by contrast, argue that the government ought to be gentle. They believe that authoritarianism is inherently unstable because it provokes resentment which leads to disorder. Libertarians are morally appalled by complete authority over other people, and therefore they don’t believe in banning things such as cannabis or homosexuality.
So within all of the six political positions of alt centrism (Establishment Right, Establishment Left, Establishment Centre, Alternative Right, Alternative Left, Alternative Centre), there are four composite attitudes (Authoritarian Globalist, Authoritarian Nationalist, Libertarian Globalist and Libertarian Nationalist). This gives us a total of 24 different political positions, all vying for control of the state.
These are the 24 powers before the throne. At any given time, in any given jurisdiction, one of these 24 powers will govern.
The ruling power in the West right now is the globalist Establishment, which is an alliance of all of the right, the left and the centre. It is currently transitioning from libertarian to authoritarian as its perceived legitimacy collapses. They are firmly globalist, being an alliance of the victorious anti-nationalist powers of World War II.
The anti-Establishment is all four of authoritarian, libertarian, globalist and nationalist. The authoritarians range from tankies on the left to theocrats on the right. The libertarians are rising in opposition to the increasingly authoritarian measures of the Establishment. The globalists generally think that the Establishment hasn’t done enough to open borders. The nationalists recognise that the vast majority of the Establishment are globalists.
All of these 24 powers have risen and fallen in influence at the various times and places in world history. The course of history could be said to be nothing more than the patterns of that rising and falling.
The authoritarian nationalist anti-Establishment is perhaps best represented by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi movement. They rose in opposition to the strictures of the Treaty of Versailles, and to the globalist Establishment that had imposed them.
The authoritarian globalist anti-Establishment left is perhaps best represented by the Communist and Bolshevik movements that swept the world in the early 20th Century. The authoritarian globalist left has now become part of the Establishment, leading to today’s cancel culture.
VJM Publishing represents libertarian nationalist alt centrism. We are an anti-Establishment collective that repudiates both the weakness of the left and the cruelty of the right, as well as the greed of the globalists and the mindlessness of the authoritarians.
Understanding these 24 powers before the throne is the key to understanding the movements of political arena. As some of the powers gain in power, and others lose, the landscape changes.
