Should the Goebbels Award go to Elder Scrolls Online?

Ultra-liberals in the Western entertainment industry are copying the tactics of Goebbels when using tv series, movies and online games to spread woke propaganda. If you doubt that read the book Primetime Propaganda by Ben Shapiro – who is a rightwing Jew with Hollywood connections – or take a look at this from The Independent:

Washington DC’s role behind the scenes in Hollywood goes deeper than you think

“On television, we found more than 1,100 titles received Pentagon backing – 900 of them since 2005, from ‘Flight 93’ to ‘Ice Road Truckers’ and ‘Army Wives’”

Propaganda backfires, because people hate to be manipulated emotionally. Ultra-liberal propaganda radicalizes cultural conservatives. It breeds conflict, even bioterrorism in a worst case scenario if the most dangerous of religious fanatics are disgusted by perceived decadence and LGBT propaganda distributed by Hollywood and the gaming industry. The ongoing and escalating culture war, which is potentially extremely lethal, can then be used as an excuse for implementing mass surveillance, in order to stop people who “ironically” have been partly radicalized by “progressive” top-down corporate propaganda. This is not an exaggeration. A very intelligent and now university educated former Nazi in Norway once got so mad when watching Hollywood propaganda that he destroyed the television in a fit of rage. He was already radicalized, but the propaganda enraged him even more.

I have never been against LGBT people. Have rented Hollywood movies knowing the story was about gay people, and enjoyed it. But I really hate all propaganda. So now I really dislike the LGBT lobby that uses its new corporate and government power to distribute gay content in movies, tv series and computer games. I’m opposed to this manipulative elitist lobby but don’t judge or condemn ordinary LGBT individuals. I don’t care what they do in private.

I’m a moderate nationalist however, not because I belong to any group but simply because I subjectively like the aesthetics of original “anarchistic” nationalism. This subjective preference is idiosyncratic, kind of illogical (depending on your viewpoint), plus anomalistic, and that’s precisely why I like it. But traditional family values are a core component of nationalism. So I’m therefore opposed to LGBT becoming part of mainstream culture. I’m also against rightwing minority values influencing popular culture. A constitutional democracy will be more easily destabilized if right- or leftwing minority values are allowed to enter mainstream culture, as already seen in today’s hyper-polarized states in the West.

It’s better that LGBT individuals have the same judicial rights and protections as everyone else in a Western constitutional democracy. We have laws against physical attacks and harassment. These laws already protect LGBT people and all other citizens, so we don’t need special laws for any left- or rightwing minority group.

The LGBT lobby is evil when using the power of multinational corporations to spread propaganda in favor of their own values. Many of them will of course deny that it’s propaganda. But if a rightwing minority group had used entertainment as a political platform to subtly spread an ideological message, such as anti-abortion ideas and pro-life values, then everyone knows that woke people would have immediately labelled it as propaganda.

Smart propagandists deny they are doing propaganda

The LGBT lobby is claiming that they are only using entertainment to 1) educate citizens, and 2) make LGBT more visible in society. They also claim that LGBT is part of reality, and that entertainment should reflect reality. But these arguments can be used by all propagandists. If an anti-abortion lobby had power in Hollywood it could have claimed that their propaganda was “educational”, only intended to make anti-abortion groups more visible in society. These groups are part of reality, so it’s therefore natural that they appear in many movies, tv series and computer games, in a positive or neutral way. But leftwing critics would have quickly rejected these arguments and correctly labeled it all as rightwing propaganda.

Mainstream entertainment should not be politicized. The goal of mainstream entertainment should be to make content that everybody enjoys. Mainstream tv series, movies and online games should therefore not try to make Christian pro-life groups more visible, for example. Because leftwing people don’t like that. Similarly, mainstream entertainment should not feature LGBT individuals, because cultural conservatives are definitely not entertained by it. To entertain as many different people as possible the producers of mainstream games, movies and tv series should follow the principle of respecting the lowest common denominator: creating content that most people will enjoy regardless of their group identity, regardless of their cultural values. Both leftwing and rightwing citizens can then have a good time when paying for mainstream entertainment. If you want something else that caters to your own special interests buy or rent a subcultural indy production.

Movies and tv series are often made in two versions. One version is more family friendly while the other is uncensored or director’s cut. One option therefore is to make one version of a game, movie or tv series that appeals to woke people, a second version that attracts (4chan) libertarians, and a third edition that cultural conservatives like. Only then are you respecting the true diversity we see in society today. Unfortunately we have instead a woke elite forcing their interests and subjective taste on many customers who expect apolitical entertainment but get propaganda after having paid for a movie, game or tv series.

Goebbels said that propaganda must be discrete and subtle. He wrote: “Good propaganda need not lie, in fact, must not lie. Propaganda which makes use of the lie … cannot have success in the long run. … But a right idea must also be set forth in the appropriate way.”

Hollywood and the advertising industry in liberal cities like New York and Los Angeles are the heirs of evil methods developed partly by Goebbels and Edward Bernays, the manipulative nephew of Freud. If you dare to trust Wikipedia read this about tricky Ed:

“His best-known campaigns include a 1929 effort to promote female smoking by branding cigarettes as feminist “Torches of Freedom“, and his work for the United Fruit Company in the 1950s, connected with the CIA-orchestrated overthrow of the democratically elected Guatemalan government in 1954. He worked for dozens of major American corporations including Procter & Gamble and General Electric, and for government agencies, politicians, and non-profit organizations.”

Propagandists think the opposition is easily fooled

I’m fascinated by con artists, so in honor of their profession let me introduce the brand new and sleek Goebbels Award. I nominate the developers of Elder Scrolls Online, because they deserve to become the first recipients of this infamous award. They have really played the long con when making ESO. First they created a game which naturally attracted cultural conservative people. Secondly, they waited two years until people had spent a lot of time and real money on this very expensive game. Then they started to introduce LGBT content in the game. Imagine how leftwing people would have reacted if a culturally conservative corporation had done something similar: first published an online game that attracted liberal people, then encouraged liberals to spend real money on the game, before finally introducing Christian anti-LGBT content in a new expansion, two years after the original game was released. This is “bait and switch”.

Additionally, it’s bait and switch when ESO in Europe was introduced as a game rated for teens age 16 but then changed two years later to 18+. This clearly disrespects all those customers who had committed to playing a less violent and less disgusting game. Other customers than just me have objected to the new offensive dialogues in ESO. Today I play the PvP content of ESO without listening to what is being said in the PvE part of the game, to avoid repulsive content. We really live in rotten times when entertainment corporations think that people will pay for watching or listening to disgusting material. Some may like it (after having been gradually conditioned as Pavlov’s dogs) but it’s not my cup of tea.

Imagine being a leftwing pro-choice supporter playing ESO. After two years of gaming, and after having paid hundreds of dollars for cool items in the game, you notice that several new quests is about pro-life activists fighting the evil of abortion. That’s realistic in a game like ESO, but liberals will of course claim that it’s political indoctrination, a way of influencing the youth playing ESO, and they are right, because it is propaganda, just not the kind of indoctrination that woke leftwing people support.

ESO is clearly woke in some cases. But its propaganda can be “subtle” too. Ultra-liberals would have immediately noticed that ESO does in fact present “subtle” propaganda if the game had quests such as 1) rescuing the wife of an arms dealer from prison after she got jailed by weapon prohibitionists, 2) protecting a coal miner from violent environmentalists, and 3) uniting an anti-gay couple so that they can continue to live as a traditional family.

Fight the manipulators who spread propaganda

Since I’m a cultural conservative I have some degree of sympathy with almost all (ultra-)orthodox religions, including traditional Judaism. But if Hollywood had started to “subtly” feature ultra-orthodox Jews in many movies, so that the audience could see in every fifth or tenth mainstream movie that an ultra-orthodox Jew did something in the background while the main characters were busy with the main story, would you not eventually start to think that Hollywood was promoting Ultra-Orthodox Judaism? That conclusion would not be unreasonable if you knew that Hollywood had a long tradition of gradually bringing minority groups into the spotlight of mainstream movies.

Effective propaganda is always subtle (in the beginning, until a fringe social group has become incrementally normalized). You can therefore seldom prove scientifically that propaganda is going on. But you are very naive if you believe it when the manipulators in Hollywood deny that they are using entertainment as a way to make societies more progressive = more like what is already normal and mainstream in California and in other libertine and woke cities on the American coasts.

Cultural conservatives today cannot afford to wait endlessly for scientific proof that Western entertainment contains propaganda. You seldom find reliable scientific evidence in hyper-polarized politics. But if something looks like propaganda, then assume it’s propaganda, according to the logic: if it walks and quacks like a duck, then it’s probably a duck. Secondly, the intention of ultra-liberal Hollywood producers matters little from a conservative perspective when the actual result of their movies are the same as deliberate propaganda.

A “progressive” entertainment company is harming its own business once it has acquired a reputation for distributing subtle propaganda. When the audience is aware of this subtleness it will automatically interpret everything in a movie that can be associated with ultra-liberality to be part of an ideological agenda. The audience may jump to conclusions but that’s natural in a culture war where ultra-liberal elites and moderate or radical conservatives don’t trust each other.

If ultra-orthodox Jews controlled Hollywood then you would probably have interpreted it as a religious version of “product placement” if every fifth or tenth movie had Orthodox Jewish references injected in dialogues not related in any way to the storyline, like this example here:

Soldier: May I have leave next weekend?

Officer: Why?

Soldier: I’m going to visit my Orthodox Jewish friend in London.

Officer: That’s okay, just be back on Monday.

A couple of days later you watch a new movie. Two detectives are searching through the home of a suspect. They start talking in the living room. In the background you can see a painting on the wall. It’s a picture of an ultra-orthodox Jew. The next evening you turn on the telly to watch your favorite tv series which has been running for years. A firefighter is walking into a liquor store to buy some wine. Behind the counter is an ultra-orthodox Jew. This pattern continues in every fifth or tenth movie, game and tv series you have paid for, so eventually you call your friend Adam in Hollywood and ask what’s going on.

You: Hey, why are all these ultra-orthodox Jews popping up in the mainstream entertainment I have paid for? It seems like it’s propaganda for a religious minority group.

Adam: It’s not propaganda. Ultra-orthodox Jews are part of reality, so we just want to educate common people about this reality.

You: In my view it appears to be propaganda.

Adam: Can you prove that? I assure you that our intentions have nothing to do with propaganda. We are simply using entertainment to normalize the religious practices of Ultra-Orthodox Judaism.

You: But that is propaganda!

Adam: No it isn’t.

Now imagine a Palestinian seeing this Jewish propaganda in a mainstream movie that he has paid for. Do you think he will be pacified and “educated” by it? Or will he be angry because of this manipulative propaganda?

When dealing with liberal propaganda deniers in the West it’s better to stop debating with them, because they will insist that what they are doing is “educational”, not propaganda. Or they will argue that they are only depicting reality in the 2020s, without mentioning that they are the ones who have used propaganda, biased news, the school system and the top-down power of state bureaucracies the last 50 years to gradually create this new social reality.

Another strategy which ultra-liberal propagandists are relying on is the claim that: “Conservatives have through the ages used top-down propaganda to justify their own social power structure, so we have to use ultra-liberal propaganda to counter and reverse this old trend”. But entertainment for the masses is a relatively new phenomenon. The first proper sound movie was released in 1927, with the liberal title “The Jazz Singer”, and with a liberal theme.

In any case, two wrongs don’t make a right. Both liberals and conservatives should stop using entertainment as propaganda. Because each side will otherwise engage in an endless attempt to use their own propaganda to reverse the effects caused by their opponents’ propaganda. It’s a vicious circle.

When ultra-liberal manipulators get power and use it to spread propaganda and “nudge” people in a certain ideological direction – cf the book Nudge by Thaler and Sunstein – then moderate conservatives are being forced to organize and use their own power and influence to create a resistance. Because rational dialogue is not sufficient anymore. This resistance however should not rely on propaganda but instead warn people about not being fooled by the top-down manipulative tactics of Big Business and Big Government.

Woke institutions are sometimes not subtle at all when using entertainment or art to spread a political message. Here is Alexander Adams’ view of how Our Institutions Despise Our Heritage in England today.

Liberal propaganda radicalizes instead of desensitizing conservatives

Governments and corporations say they support “deradicalization” of militant activists. But it’s not easy for a rightwing or leftwing radical to retire from politics when he or she encounters politicized entertainment in movies, games and tv series.

Anders Behring Breivik played World of Warcraft. In court and in his manifesto he also complained about the libertinism of Hollywood. Elder Scrolls Online has a theme that naturally attracts nationalists, even Nazis. One guild in the game was called “White Power”. I reported it to ESO, because I’m against all politicization of mainstream entertainment. Imagine the rage created in an unstable and radical cultural conservative after he has spent a lot of money and energy on a game only to one day be exposed to LGBT content in his favorite game. He will perceive it as an insult. It will make him more aggressive than he already is. It increases the risk that he will use violence against members of the LGBT minority. LGBT propaganda does not make the world safer, especially not in a game like ESO.

I’m a Christian, but I will be viscerally opposed to any corporation that uses mainstream entertainment to subtly (subconsciously) trick people into accepting Christian values. Because that’s how the Devil operates. (Writing a Christian novel openly intended for a Christian audience is okay, because then people know what they are buying.)

As long as Elder Scrolls Online or any other mainstream online game contains LGBT propaganda, fight it by opposing LGBT in real life. Teach these manipulators that propaganda is counterproductive, that it backfires. Don’t be afraid of their harassment and bullying techniques. In fact, I get unhappy and depressed if a day goes by without being smeared by woke hypocrites. But never verbally or physically attack any individual who is LGBT. Respect all human beings, no matter their identity. Forgive everyone. Hate the sin, not the sinner. Because we are all sinners. Therefore forgive those who sin in a different way than you do. Try to have unconditional mercy with everyone, including propagandists.

I consider Chelsea Manning to be a hero. He is the only male I will call a “she”. Only because I respect her bravery and hyper-individuality. I also respect Glenn Greenwald. Have to mention this to make it clear that my opposition to LGBT in the mainstream culture does not mean I’m against individual human beings who are not part of mainstream society. I’m an outcast myself. Actually think that the LGBT lobby is betraying real outcasts by trying to become “normal” and “mainstream”.

I’m against “hate crime” laws since they are biased, even “racist”, because they give some social groups special protection based on skin color or gender identification. I’m tough on crime however, so if anybody physically attacks or harasses an LGBT person, then I would have given the perpetrator max jail time if I had been a judge, the same max sentence I would have given if the victim had not been LGBT.

But when the LGBT lobby cooperates with oppressive multinational corporations, and uses the top-down power of oppressive Big Government to change the majority culture in the West, as we have seen the last 50 years, then I view this lobby as the enemy. However, as a Jeffersonian or nationalist “anarchist” – don’t tread on me – I will also view any conservative Christian group as the enemy if it gets power in the West and uses Big Business and state institutions to “nudge” society in a Christian anti-gay direction. Leave common people alone. Don’t manipulate them from above.

Rules of Engagement

Here are a few rules that all conservative hackers should follow no matter whether they are sabotaging systems or just doing non-destructive recreational hacking of woke entertainment companies:

Firstly, do not hack online services that is already up and running, because common people will not like it if online games or streaming services are suddenly not available (if non-destructive hackers accidentally mess up a system during a challenging game of reconnaissance). Better to hack the production of a movie, tv series or game before it has been published.

Secondly, don’t hack the emails of employees working for ultra-liberal entertainment corporations. Disclosing the private emails of your political opponents, in an attempt to smear them on a personal level and cause a scandal, is hitting below the belt.

Thirdly, don’t hack the computers of ordinary LGBT individuals. Only hack the corporate distributors of LGBT propaganda. Hit those in power, don’t attack powerless individuals.

Some ultra-liberal critics will perhaps argue that I’m trying to create a conflict when I’m objecting to LGBT propaganda. But everybody knows that this conflict already exists. I’m therefore not “warmongering” here. Just pointing out the fact that today’s elitist LGBT policy in the West is an anomaly from a historical perspective. In earlier times – even as late as the 1980s for example – this policy would have triggered a mass rebellion, and also wars, if a ruling elite back then had not changed its disruptive policies regarding mainstream culture. But atomization, surveillance and a confusing Byzantine fourth industrial revolution appear to have so far neutralized an effective rightwing rebellion today, in 2021.

Corporations and governments still have time to roll back their new propaganda policy, before the conflict escalates beyond control. We have entered an era of brutal climate change, overpopulation, massive disinformation and a high-tech arms race between global powers. The LGBT lobby is therefore playing a very dangerous game in this unpredictable environment.

But no group will give up power voluntarily (unless its allies force it to curb its ambitions). So it’s possible that the LGBT lobby will double down and bet everything on creating a gay surveillance state that nobody in the West can resist. This is gay Titoism: using the top-down power of the secret police, MI5 and CIA, to keep new multicultural “diversity” states together, in order to prevent balkanization.

If you are a blind believer in human “progress” it may seem reasonable to conclude that humanity has reached a stage of nonviolent wisdom where woke diversity is a realistic possibility. But if that had actually been the case, why all the unprecedented surveillance in Western states today? Why the prison Gulag in the US? Open up your eyes. Look around you, observe the world. Do you see much wisdom and enlightenment?

Massive drought in Western America, probably related to climate changes. A potential WW3 over Taiwan or Ukraine. A pandemic maybe caused by a lab leak. An increased risk of bioterrorism. Unprecedented economic inequality. Fake news even from Biden, the surveillance tzar who says he practically wrote the Patriot Act. Migration is out of control. And don’t forget growing rightwing populism. In this very dangerous and volatile environment it’s fascinating to observe that the LGBT community, a vulnerable minority, decide to act as high rollers in global politics. At least it’s entertaining. It’s better entertainment than the propaganda they serve in Hollywood movies and in woke computer games. From this cynical viewpoint it’s good if the LGBT lobby doesn’t back down, because it sure creates interesting times.

But in the long run it’s arguably not good for business when people notice that Elder Scrolls Online is “subtly” brainwashing (young) teens. The game is 18+, but everybody knows that parents allow kids to play ESO. Being in the brainwashing business is not good PR however. This applies of course to all companies that use entertainment as top-down propaganda. This website here is about exposing their propaganda model, but not in an attempt to weaken the American entertainment industry. Instead interpret it as a wakeup call. Western entertainment has become so obviously politicized and sometimes also disgusting that it has to be “saved from itself”, by removing these redundant features that have nothing do to with real creativity. ESO for example will earn more money if they give customers an option to download either a cut or uncut version of the game, so that both conservatives and woke (libertines) are happy customers.

If I had been a parent today I would not have allowed my young teens to play Elder Scrolls Online. There are too many sick individuals in the game, and the developers are not doing enough to stop this (dangerous) toxicity. The developers instead encourage obscene communication when they create storylines which include disgusting material and violence against innocent civilians.
