This is why Trump and people like Charlie Kirk are dangerous.— Josh Jordan (@NumbersMuncher) October 27, 2021
They know they’re lying to people to keep them angry and to keep the money flowing in, but at some point they can’t stop the monsters they created.

Do you remember the Groyper War?
In hindsight, it seems rather tame compared to where we are now. I’m just saying these are the kind of questions that Charlie Kirk is getting from the audience now.
As I have been saying all year now, the best strategy at the present moment is inactivism. We don’t need to go out and “do something” in the public square to bring people over to our side. The George Floyd riots, the rollout of systematic racism and Trump’s defeat has radicalized millions of normies. These normies are talking about using their guns to kill leftists at Turning Point USA events now!
There are long stretches of history which are characterized by stability. Nothing much happens. There are always frustrated radicals in the population, but they are vastly outnumbered and checked by moderates. Elites are strong in these periods and rule through consensus. These long stretches of stability are punctuated by periodic crises. The number of radicals in a population slowly starts growing again until suddenly their numbers go vertical before a society destabilizes and plunges into a crisis.
Andrew Yang recently shared this on Twitter:
This is based on the Turchin-Goldstone theory of historical cycles.
The Strauss-Howe generational theory is similar. It holds that there are big mood swings that define the transition from one period to another across historical cycles. In a Fourth Turning, the public mood sours and turns destructive. Everything becomes extreme. All it takes is for a spark to start a conflagration that shakes a society to its foundations. Strauss-Howe and Turchin-Goldstone came to this conclusion with very different models, but agreed that the next time this would happen would be in the 2020s.
Sure enough, there has been a sudden and dramatic radicalization of normies across a broad spectrum of issues, but especially in their openness to using violence to resolve political disagreements. It is happening right on schedule. Draconian censorship has accelerated radicalization.
Anyway, I say this because I have believed for a year or two now that we are caught in a vertiginous spiral. It is not because I have changed. Instead, it seems like most people have changed on both sides and have become much more extreme over the past few years. Normal people have been radicalized.
I’m just saying, you know, a lot has changed over the last two years.
