SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police is a Ebook ETA: Any Rabid Puppies making fools of themselves in the comments are free to continue to do so. Y'all like lemmings, except lemmings don't actually splatter themselves in the rush.**Ah, Vox Day. This gif reflects how I feel whenever I hear/read him argue about something, which I've been doing since reading A Throne of Bones (a fantasy novel by Vox Day so bad it may cause indelible fits of laughter).Unlike with A Throne of Bones, I didn't actually read SJWs Always Lie. I didn't have to. It's all in the title.1. Vox Day's horde - and I swear to god, they're a "horde" he calls "the Dread Ilk" - have given the book 5 star ratings across the board on Amazon. They actually gather online to discuss "tactics", as they're now doing for the 2016 Hugo Awards. I am not making this up. Day, see, failed at destroying the Hugo Awards in 2015, and is now happily sneering at liberal speculative fiction writers, using fandom's post-Hugo celebratory time to (I swear) try and plan a sneak attack for 2016. His own words: "Sneak attack." No fucking irony.2. Vox Day's inability to grasp irony makes its way to the book title. Because Vox Day is, I've decided in the time since reading A Throne of Bones (somehow not explicitly subtitled Jesus is the Light of the World and Also Women Are Timid, Frail, Innocent Creatures Which Ought to Be Ruled By Men) an actual idiot. This needs a history lesson:The acronym SJW (for "Social Justice Warrior") came into being as an ironic term used to describe a very specific breed of activist that wanted to instigate progress, but instead damaged their own cause by being too outraged to be coherent. Think, say, someone who would rage caps about misogyny into Tumblr because someone made sort of semi-controversial remark about women's appearance and makeup, and maybe unintentionally so.But Vox Day doesn't understand that. The irony of the term is so lost on him he feels the need to put forward his own definition of SJW: "People who want to control what you say and how you think." He insists there's a "thought police" out there who'll arrest you for any "wrongthink".We could, however, extrapolate further definitions of SJWs from his blog:Do you believe that non-whites are actual human beings?Do you disagree with traditional gender roles, believing that women should have equal work opportunities instead of being defaulted as stay-at-home mums?Do you think homosexuality is natural, and not a birth "defect"?Do you think Muslims aren't the scourge of the earth?If you said yes, to any of these, you are, according to Vox, a SJW.(Also, non-Christians are irrational idiots and war refugees are really just a jihadist invasion.)Understand, Vox Day is the guy who once offered a woman money to rape her. Only three days ago, in fact, he wrote this:Anyhow, men who whine about their wife being "the boss" are mostly gammas and low deltas. The only time a man takes orders is if you are a) at work, b) joining the priesthood, or c) in the Army.(He chooses to ignore one comment, no doubt by one of those filthy SJWs: "Yeah? What if you're at school and she's a teacher? What if she's a doctor? What if she's a person of authority talking about something you know jack shit about? Should I disobey the next female judge who gives me an order? Should I tell her that Vox Day tells me not to listen unless we're at work, I'm joining the priesthood, or we're in the Army?")He fails to understand that using using ironic terms sincerely makes him look stupid. Although, let's be honest, Vox Day, you're pretty good at that:3. This misunderstanding of irony somehow seeps into the subtitle. Here's another history lesson.Vox Day created Rabid Puppies. Rabid Puppies, mostly composed of the aforementioned "Dread Ilk", aimed to "reclaim" the Hugos from those filthy SJWs (before switching to wanting to "nuke" the Hugos for having a popular taste different to his). The story is that Day believes that certain "cliques" manipulate the Hugo Award, choosing to give books to certain liberal writers based on politics, not the quality of the work.So Day (a self-proclaimed "superintelligence" [sic] who apparently couldn't come-up with an idea of his own) decides to copy a pal of his and create a voting block. He then instructs his "minions" to vote for the exact works he's nominated.No thinking. Just obeying. And the exact works.The irony of then subtitling his book "Taking Down the Thought Police" should be apparent.Well, maybe not to Day.It takes a real toilet-clogger to earn 1-star based on title alone, but Vox did it.Congratulations, Einstein!. Social Justice Warriors have plagued mankind for than 150 years, but only in the last 30 years has their ideology become dominant in the West Having invaded one institution of the cultural high ground after another, from corporations and churches to video games and government, there is nowhere that remains entirely free of their intolerant thought and speech policingSocial Justice Warriors have plagued mankind for than 150 years, but only in the last 30 years has their ideology become dominant in the West Having invaded one institution of the cultural high ground after another, from corporations and churches to video games and government, there is nowhere that remains entirely free of their intolerant thought and speech policing Because the SJW agenda of diversity, tolerance, inclusiveness, and equality flies in the face of both science and observable reality, SJWs relentlessly work to prevent normal people from thinking or speaking in any manner that will violate their ever mutating Narrative They police science, philosophy, technology, and even history in order to maintain the pretense that their agenda remains inevitable in a modern world that contradicts it on a daily basis The book is named after the First Law of SJW SJWs always lie SJWs Always Lie is a useful guide to understanding, anticipating, and surviving SJW attacks from the perspective of a man who has not only survived, but thrived, after experiencing multiple attempts by Social Justice Warriors to disqualify, discredit, and disemploy him in the same manner they have successfully attacked Nobel Laureates, technology CEOs, broadcasters, sports commentators, school principals, and policemen It analyzes well known SJW attacks as well as the two most successful examples of resistance to the SJW Narrative, GamerGate and Sad Puppies Written by Vox Day, Supreme Dark Lord of the Evil Legion of Evil and three time Hugo nominee who is described as the most hated man in science fiction by Black Gate and The Wall Street Journal, SJWs Always Lie is a powerful weapon in the cultural war against the thought police.. A viral Kindle SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police A clear, concise and useful summary of today's SJW (Social Justice Warriors) movement, including their influence on the culture, infiltration of major institutions and, more importantly, the threat they present to regular unsuspecting people in everyday life. Whether you are an up-and-coming author or a corporate cubicle dweller, a scientist with a list of impressive achievements under your belt or a college student--chances are, sooner or later you will encounter these members of the new authoritarian movement who want nothing less than total control over your speech, your behavior, your very thoughts. If this book were nothing else but a guide for how to survive one of the SJW attacks, it would deserve undying gratitude of every free thinking person in the country. It is, however, more than that.After reciting the "3 laws of SJWs," the book, somewhat oddly, spends time demonstrating them in action through a detailed discussion of the dispute between Day and his perpetual foe John Scalzi (an SJW) over the popularity of Scalzi's website. It is a puzzling choice at first glance; however, it plants the pertinent question in the reader's mind. If Mr. Scalzi is willing to lie and obfuscate about something as trivial and easily verified as website page views, what are the chances he would be truthful on things more substantial? Thus, in proper storytelling fashion, the hook is set, and the reader wants to know more.Most of the rest of the book is, once again, full of effective storytelling techniques applied to non-fiction. The chapters alternate between disturbing demonstrations of SJW methods and tactics used against people who should have been fairly indestructible (thus bringing the reader close to despair) and showing proven, reliable ways that could be used to actually defeat such attacks (giving the reader hope and the reason to read on). I have not read Vox Day's fiction except for a few short stories, but the very structure of this book makes me curious to check out his longer fiction work. Aside from his… interesting…personality, the man knows how to write.Substance-wise, the book is packed with information, from full history of GamerGate, to the Hugo Awards situation, to very understandable and valuable explanation of 4th Generation Warfare and how it applies to non-military struggles, to crash course in dialectic vs rhetorical debate techniques. If you have never cracked open a sci-fi book or pressed an ON button of a game system controller, you will still understand the basics of every issue discussed in the book.There are a few special treats for the readers as well, not the least of which is a Foreword by the always fabulous Milo Yiannopoulos a.ka. Nero, a fearless European journalist whom you should just discover for yourself. Also, if you're reading on Kindle, do yourself a favor and keep moving to the next page even after the software tells you the book is "complete" because there are some Appendices you will likely enjoy (or at least find educational).Is it a flawless book? Probably not. There are a couple of typos that the detractors will doubtless harp on, and one or two spots where the pacing sags a bit (most notably in the first two chapters). However, I have no problem giving it 5 stars and my ringing endorsement. Nowadays, loosely defined "pro-freedom" movement is overrun by pessimism and dire warnings, and it it inspiring indeed to see, for once, a book that offers a path towards the light, however difficult and uncertain it might be. Highly recommended.
