Cat Pay Pig

A Twitter user's reaction to yesterday's post perfectly demonstrates the effectiveness of aiming for the emotions instead of the intellect.

To the untrained eye, my interlocutor may look like a vaguely anthropomorphized cat, but its semi-literate tweeting soon reveals its true nature as a Disney paypig.

Now, some might be tempted to rebuke me for excessive harshness. Wasn't the cat-lady just trying to engage in reasoned argument about whether or not Disney is stuffing their movies with satanic agitprop?

If that was your gut reaction, don't take it too hard. Even our dear friend JimFear was blindsided at first. But my study of cognitive dissonance and its many forms instantly alerted me that my post had triggered a massive case of CogDis in cat-lady, and her seemingly reasonable front was in fact a pseudo-dialectic opener concealing a personal attack. As you can see, it didn't take long for her mask to come off.

And as we should all know by now, you don't reason with people deploying pseudo-dialectic and rhetoric. You don't answer their questions or justify yourself. You trigger their amygdalae even harder.

You know you've won when they start explaining themselves to you. In this case, cat-lady paypig's transparent fumbling to cover for her illiteracy is icing on the cuck cake. "I meant to do that!" didn't work when you peed yourself in second grade gym class. It doesn't work now.

After that, the exchange had ramped up cat-lady paypig's CogDis to the point that she had to retreat to stop the pain.

And that's my trick.

As predicted, there are many who are so dependent on the matrix that they will fight to protect the system that enslaves them. Decades of Leftist control of the media has produced a horde of people like cat-lady who will furriously resist all attempts to break their delusions.

Once again, this is why it is essential that we produce our own books, movies, and games with heroic and virtuous themes. And it's doubly important that we support others who already labor in the field.

  1. Why anyone would get so defensive about a literal Gibson-esque MegaCorporation is beyond me, I just don't understand it.

    1. Human beings are hardwired to worship something bigger than ourselves.

      That impulse is properly oriented toward God. But now that He's been banished from the public square, people are filling the void with whatever's at hand. It's Mickey Mouse as golden calf.

    2. It's like everyone is drunk on the black lotus and only a few are aware enough to see the monstrous shadow demon waiting to consume the entire populace.

    3. Short digression: A longtime aspiring author who's an even better writer than me recently read "The Tower of the Elephant" on my recommendation. He was floored. I'd answered his initial skepticism by pointing out that the Conan most people only know from the Schwarzenegger movies is a shadow of Howard's character. After reading, he heartily agreed and noted that REH's prose easily meets the highest contemporary pro standards (I think he exceeds today's standards, but one step at a time).

      Back to your comment. 90% of people are lemmings waiting to get with what they perceive as the winning team. This is apparently news to some folks, but it's been true for all of human history.

      However, that's why countercultural movements typically need only 10% of the population to succeed.

    4. Very true about the ten percent, history shows that very clearly.

      My favorite (so far) is the Scarlet Citadel. I didn't even know wizards could do that sort of thing, blows the postmodern drek completely out of the water.

    5. Fortunate to discover Howard at 13. Still one of the very best writers.

  2. She retreated to subsume her psychic pain in hefty helpings of Captain Fluffy Pants's "Kibbles 'N Bits".

    So sad.

    That exchange was...enlightening?...disturbing?...eyeopening?
    Your exchange with the cat lady reinforces my call to expand all areas of life from carpentry, fashion,architecture even toys.
    we need to implement modern the version of St Thomas Aquinas's remark that you can't pray on an empty stomach. So first calm the appetites and reason is ready for its audoence.

    1. Good on you for correctly categorizing carpentry and architecture as arts.

    2. Thanks. My dad did furniture making as a hobby. I helped alot.There's no question that carpentry is an art.
      We also need to create teen literary magazine
      Because this one has to burn to the ground

      By contrast its sister publications for the younger readers are quite good with lovely illustrations most of the time

  4. The way you handled the cat was absolutely proper. Give these people an inch, they will walk all over you, scream at you, then demand an apology because you're oppressing them. Much better to never let them get started.
