The Q Diss-Info Wars

Well, seems Q isn’t going away, as some folks on our end of the Tubes would wish. Despite the best attempts of folks like Alex Jones and Jerome Corsi, Q is still posting, and the campaign to destroy the legitimacy of Q and the QAnon army of supporters, by a variety of disinfomation drops down the tubes (as well as other mainstream media sources, increasingly, as the movement gathers more momentum than ever) has, to the amusement of many of those who consider themselves the real MAGA base,  backfired, and resulted in many of the agents of chaos departing, instead of Q being the one to go. Alex Jones and Corsi who both insisted that the Q posts had been compromised, were to become more than a little compromised themselves, with Jones bumped off his InfoWars channel completely, and Corsi, it seems,now about to be bounced away to jail, still holding out the donation bucket on the way. Their spiel didn’t wash, and although they were believed by many, for long enough to benefit career wise and financially from the sensationalism they were selling in order to undermine the movement while elevating their own importance, while flogging their merchandise, their stars dimmed with their credibility, as the movement continued to attract new followers, and grow in strength.

There are still plenty of detractors around, however, who continue to diss Q and the Anons, calling them the kinds of names which could be more appropriately applied to themselves, profiteers and disinfo agents, spreaders of division and confusion. Most of these folks hold out one hand for donations, while jeering  people who care about their country deeply, and want the world to become a better place, through their honest efforts. These characters find many weird and wacky ways to keep up with the Jones’s, and spread the dirt about Q, hoping to turn it into gold (some of the stranger examples provided later).
Dissenting voices, comments which don’t match those of the herd, or awkward questions  often get blocked entirely, with the convenient label of troll attached publicly after the poster has attempted to bring up a point which doesn’t fit the propaganda narrative the channel wants to push, so that nobody may have access to the wider debate, and free speech. This often leads to self-destruction, as proponents of the idea that truth always prevails in the end would argue. In my opinion, it certainly leads to the kinds of odd behaviours we’ve seen on a variety of channels on our end of YouTube, the so-called-Truth Community,  over the last year, and with self deceit and deception of others comes a form of madness, as one’s interior moral compass begins to implode, and the surreal workings of the chaotic unconscious surface more, with rationality and a  logical approach to topics dispensed with in favour of high drama and entertainment. You are cordially invited to look at some of these disinfo content creators’ creative efforts in a video which will be posted later on my teeny tiny channel, and tell me what you think of their efforts to thwart the best efforts of the QAnons to help Potus change the world for the better. My video efforts may be poor, but I’ll blow my likkle bugle for what I see a cause worth trumpeting. If this kid can do it, despite the attempts to shut him down and silence his right to free speech, the least I can do is to stand up and be counted too. Here’s a personal invite to see my small stand to take back the tubes from those who want to continue to undermine the Patriot movement, by shutting down dialogue and spreading disinfo. All welcome to join in the discourse.

 

This poster on Twitter has a sentiment I agree with. Sometimes difficult things have to be pointed out, but we must speak up for what we believe in, especially in difficult times. Sometimes, in the midst of  chaos and madness, greed and deceit, speaking out for what you believe is the truth is the right thing to do. Speak up for your truth bravely, and keep standing your ground. You may only get one chance to build a better world. Take it, while you still have the chance. Here’s the finished mash-up vid of some of those nutty anti-Q folks.

I feel I should include for your consideration here, some much better channels you could be watching, often saved in my favourites playlists, include the following one, which give you real Q information, and which tend not to think it’s so much about the clicks and donations as looking at the Q drops. These are channels which  encourage viewers to participate, and  to do their own research, where commenters are listened to,  instead of led like docile cows by the nose into the disinfo pen of their channels, and paraded around the small circle of their friend’s channels , where the same line of disinfo is trotted out, and where no truth may enter. These channels are a few of my own favourites, and of course every QArmy footsoldier has their own favourite content creators. The journey is your own, but pick your fellow travelers wisely, and do your own research, as some of them may well be wolves in sheep’s clothing.

My Q Confessions

I’ve got to confess, I’ve made mistakes. When Alex Jones first started  telling us, in May this year on InfoWars, that he had the inside scoop on who Q was, that because he was such a patriot, Q decided to phone him up and give him some inside information I thought, What? Why would Q, who AJ soon told us was a fairly low ranking  guy in the army,  called “Zach”,  who we soon got to know some other things about, want to blow his cover and splash himself all over the internet in such a public way? Didn’t it kind of spoil the idea of what undercover meant? It all seemed very odd, given that Q was supposed to be an undercover agent (Q’s initial identity on the Chans was “Q Clearance Patriot”)  or agents with top level security clearance, working with president Trump to mobilize support to “drain the swamp” and bring down the deep state traitors, working against the best interests of the US, as well as the world, opposing the New World Order that previous presidents loved to eulogize as something we would all learn to love. Ordinary folk like myself, on the other hand, loved what Trump had to offer, ‘cos he seemed to really want, like us,  to tell the New World Order to stick it where the sun don’t shine.

Anons, 70,000 of whom were on TheGreatAwakening Reddit thread before it was conveniently banned for “hate speech”, that blanket term that, if you ask me,  covers pretty much any topic that Trump supporters  want to bring out into the open to discuss, who claimed to be working with Q from the beginning, way back when things were more calm than stormy, in the sense of momentum for The Great Awakening built up by QAnon, were saying Alex was full of baloney, and bloating himself up on power while belching out disinfo to the Patriots deliberately, because Q was not Zach, and the narrative that Jones was dispensing was designed to discredit the movement, and undermine confidence in it. They insisted that a storm would follow, and the swamp would be drained, with the QArmy pulling together to help Trump achieve this.

Well, we know what kind of storms came next, at least those who followed it, and weren’t living in the bubble of MSM reporting, remember, and to my shame (and here’s the confession part – I’m hanging my head a bit, and avoiding your eye, dear reader, as I admit this) I was one of those who lost faith that Q had our best interests at heart, because the parade of fake Qs and money-grabbing band-wagon jumpers that proliferated and profiteered in the Truth Movement end of YouTube managed to persuade more than a few of us that Q must be poo, created to keeping us clicking, donating and clamouring to buy important people’s latest books. But the plot took more than a few twists, as the fake Qs fell, one by one, then, it seemed, in an avalanche,  in the settling dust, the last ones standing were still QAnon, and Trump. We’re all on the team too, if we only stand up and be counted. You will earn derision and hatred from some quarters, but let’s face it, those quarters are probably the ones you wouldn’t be seen dead hanging around in anyhow, so count me in, Q, and bring on The Storm!

Socionics and Sofia ~ Psychology & Computing Communications Concepts

Magritte at computer
Psychological Types book cover
Carl Jung’s “Psychological Types”, published in 1921

What’s the difference between a personality type and a personality trait? Well, in Jung’s  theory of types, developed in his book Psychological Types (1921), he developed 8 different categories of types of people, based around the psychological functions (how people perceive the world, and make decisions) of consciousness. He examined the tensions created by personality complexes created around these functions.

It’s heavy stuff, and can be confusing, but the main idea of the theory of Socionics, developed much later (1970s and 1980s) is that one could figure out, to some extent, people’s behaviour within groups, based on their personality types and the tensions that arose in interpersonal dynamics within groups. It takes into account Jung’s theories on personality types and character traits, as well as the  Informational Metabolism theories developed by the Polish  psychiatrist, Antoni Kępiński, which explores how people interact with their environment, via signals.

In other words, Socionics explores how people interact with their environment based on their personality (the area psychology  concerns itself with), and how they process information signals in their environment (sociological element of the theory). It’s a fascinating area of study, since not only does it attempt to catagorize complex human behaviours and perceptions into an order which can be expressed diagrammatically, it can also be used to attempt to predict and shape behaviours.

It doesn’t take much of a leap of the imagination to see how these theories might have some relevance to the consideration of social media groupings as Multi-agent systems, with people communicating on various media platforms (MASs being defined as self-organizing computerized systems, see also Agent-Based Models (ABS), comprised of intelligent agents), although the initial theory of MASs examined the interplay of strictly artifical agents,  and a further implication of being able to diagrammatically organize a theory around the processes at work  with human agents operating within a constructed environment consisting of perameters defined by the system.

Multi-Agent Systems Models Diagram

While the MAS idea may suggest  interesting correspondences to the theory of Socionics, it also presents problematic issues if the models are compared or examined for comparative purposes, since with human interactions both personality traits and characteristics come into play, and often override the mechanical, stimulous/response element of the computerized communications theory. Much of the material I looked at wasn’t current, with materials on the topic spanning the 1960s to the 1990s, and after that time, online research papers becoming sparser, although the MAS model has been more extensively employed in computer technology communications fields, such as Gaming Theory and the field of Artificial Intelligence, in disciplines such as Informatics.

So is Socionics a failed theory? Maybe. Certainly my short investigation into it yielded surprisingly little literature discussing practical current applications, at least on the relationship between the two, though they seem to be at least tangentially related, in that they both are theories which involve decision making in a computing environment. There is, however, unarguably,  a point at which the humans and machines must intersect, and interact, and messages are communicated, and some interesting applications of the conjunction of humans and machines can result in new technologies and modes of communication developing, such as when bots imitate human modes of interaction, acting as influencers or agents of change within groups, with a higher level of autonomy envisaged for the future, via the rate of technological advances being made in this direction, in the field of computing.

What does the future in these fields hold? The designers of this robot, called Sofia (now the first robot citizen ever) would like us to believe that sentience is an achievable goal, but can computers ever truly be human, and do they behave as humans do? Authors such a Stephen Pinker have argued that our brains behave like computers, but can a computer ever really be said to behave in a subjective way? Might it ever?

Ancient Fnordic Meme Culture (exciting new finds!)

This reblog of the week explores the Fnordic Culture of the Discordian Tribe of Eris. My own recent digging around has unearthed a few old but new gems, including this scroll of wisdom, shown below, describing how the Aani myths relate to the chaotic origins of Discordia, and the legends of Eris, the Goddess of strife and thingimy-bobs of a messy nature, described first by the fed-up philosopher Richard Dawkins, which blossomed into the later memes of the post-post-classical meltdown period. Confused? Good. You are starting to get the fnord of the thing. Read on, for further illumination.

Discordian YouTube Connections? I’ve often suspected there’s a large area of cross-over, but never been able to definitively prove anything. And just look at the bother one can get into, speculating on things without proof. Defango recommends Tarl Warwick‘s (Styx hexenhammer666′s) book on Occult Memetics on a recent video. Interestingly, Tarl Warwick is also the editor of this little tome. He must be a busy guy, as he is also running for the position of Governer of Vermont this year. How fnordy is that. If you are worried about demon infestation issues from reading the Grimoire, you could stick to the Discordian version, which you probably won’t catch demons off, unless you consider a fit of the giggles evil.

I’m In My Prime, Girls! Midweek Movie

The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie poster

Tonight’s midweek movie is a classic from 1969, starring the always magnificent Maggie Smith. Based on the book of the same name, by Muriel Spark.

Here’s the trailer for the movie, to give you a taste of this comedy mini-masterpiece, which has a twist in the tale, as the idyllic dream Miss Brodie offers the girls as a vision of the life that lies ahead of them starts to unravel at the seams.

A formidable lady, indeed. It was said of her that

“The Brodie set did not for a moment doubt that she would prevail. As soon expect Julius Caesar to apply for a job at a crank school as Miss Brodie. She would never resign. If the authorities wanted to get rid of her she would have to be assassinated.”

Muriel spark uses a variety of pithy phrases attributed to Miss Brodie, which not only cause us to laugh, but hint at the darkness which emerges later on, as the girls’ relationship with her continues. It is an ambiguous movie, because we are encouraged to have a fondness for Miss Brodie, while later are shocked by some of the hidden character traits which emerge as we discover more aspects of this complex character. Some may be left at the end of the movie with the impression that they, like Miss Brodie, might “rather deal with a rogue than a fool” So, take your seats quietly, pencils at the ready, and above all, “Pay attention, girls!!!!!

Reblog Of The Week. “Deviant Sociology”.

A big shoutout to the kind reader who hooked me up with this Wikipedia page, which discusses Howard S. Becker’s social theory of “Moral Entrepreneurs”. I found it really interesting, particularly in relation to the idea of splitting this group into Rule Creators, and Rule Enforcers, and studying their role in society, along socio-economic lines, and I wanted to read more, after my interest had been stimulated by this always relevant topic. I came across this WordPress site, which expanded on the topic, and I thought my readers might find it interesting.

The Pain Body

I did a livestream the other day, which discussed Eckhart Tolle’s thoughts about “The Pain-Body”, a term he coined for the tendency humans have towards keeping painful psychological patterns of behaviours going. We discuss his definition of The Pain Body, and his ideas about how it manifests in our lives. I read a few quotes, which you can look at over here. I hope you find his work as interesting as I do, and get something out of our discussion. Enjoy, unless you like pain!
