What is left to a victim of pain and suffering than to find pride in having endured it, and survived; in having done anything and everything, shameful and degrading, just to survive.
Survival is his only reward, and he will raise it to a cosmic victory.

He will find in survivors, in victims the world over, his brethren.

Fabricating a self-referential, eloquent, self-consistent fantasy is easy.
A bit of talent with words and manipulating meanings and you can invent any fantastic alternative reality.
There are many - Tolkien's Middle Earth, Star Trek, Star Wars, DC, Marvel.....and many others.
All self-referential and self-consistent with their own philosophy.

What is difficult is creating a philosophy, an original one, that refers to a preexisting natural order, without having to change meanings and adjust symbols.
Meaning is the mental map harmonized to the external landscape, with all its points connected.
Fabricating your own mental map, with no reference to anything outside your mind....is child's play and children will come to share in the game.

The degenerate always considers an opinion, or critique, that exposes him to himself, as a form of complaining.
He has no response, so he accuses the intent, as only he can relate to it, and the only way he can relate to it is as a degenerate.
It's another circular godly divine word-game - a perfect noetic linguistic circle.
Degeneracy accuses those who expose him as what he is, of complaining about degeneracy.
Silence, presumably, would be preferable.

But the hunter studies, analyzes the herd, not because he is interested in any particular member of its multiplicity, but because he is interested in the overall behaviour.
He seeks patterns in this uniformity.
He studies the herd, the vermin, the scavengers and parasites...he studies his environment, and all he is forced to share it with.

Is intelligence enough?
I've met many smart people who were inept in everything except one thing, their specialty.
Is intelligence about knowledge?
Computer is a stupid machine, but it can hold more data than the average human, these days.

Knowledge is not understanding, yet it is essential to understanding.

What we call intelligence includes brain processing speeds, sensual acuity, memory, knowledge, experiences, but it also includes creativity, expressed as humour, as art, as charm, as self-control.
More importantly one must be brave and not a coward, because fear can stifle intelligence and warp it....as can all emotions. Emotions make you stupid because they are automatic reactions to stimuli, circumventing the mind's lucid control.  
Love, hate, envy, desire...all can corrupt the mind and lead intelligence astray. They can make the mind overestimate or underestimate, itself or others.
The Body can make quick and accurate judgments, more honest ones, and should not be ignored, but it cannot reason nor control itself.
Courage is also essential to accept what is revealed to you....because the world is not automatically benevolent and positive toward you and your objectives.
Many an intelligent man behaved like idiots because they lacked courage.

Finally, intelligence is self-knowledge - Know Thyself. Not flatter yourself, not see only the good, and exaggerate them, and dismiss and try to forget the negative.
This is part of the overestimation/underestimation.
If knowing yourself were easy, then it would not be written in Delphi.
Knowing thyself... is a lifelong exploration.
It is about acceptance, self-love, and compensation for what you cannot change...and knowing that you did so.

The real is indisputable.
He who rejects it only condemns himself to future failures and the costs these entail.
All you have to do is make yourself a conduit of the real to feel its power.
The lens that focuses its heat too precisely, with a laser-like focus, risk being shattered by it.
It has to retreat and cool down before it returns to the task.

The real needs no advocates.  
You either see it,a s it is, or it is you who suffers the consequences.
No fancy words, no clever excuses and linguistic trickery can save you from the world.
Human systems can protect you, but not entirely and not forever.

Lies can do so much to evade and postpone the inevitable.
In the end there is a reckoning, and its magnitude equal to the time and the degree you managed to evade and postpone.

Globalism = Americanism
New World Order
It is associated with any unification of preexisting nation-states, so as to slander, and shame any resistance to actual Globalism.
Accusing the merger of Europe into a European State of being part of globalism is an attempt to prevent it from becoming a resisting power.
Divide and conquer.
A single state, even with alliances, has no chance to resist the Superstates that are now emerging.
Globalism is Americanism - the uniform application of the American culture of no culture system.
Levelling down humanity to American style individualism - individuals with no past, no nature, no identity other than the one derived from the immediate, socioeconomic environment in the form of symbols, career (utility as this is evaluated by the majority).
Individuals with no natural identifiers like sex and race.
Individuals with no inherited culture, but vulnerable to trends and fashions.
Individuals of mixed-race and with no biology based sexuality.
The ideal consumer.

The only acceptable identifiers are rooted in Abrahamic spirituality.

The average mind needs superstition to remain disciplined and sane.
Even back when paganism was the norm and there was no Abrahamism...at least in Europe, the masses needed a laymen's version of their beliefs, full of magic and mysticism.
The average mind is not content with reasoning and logic and reality.
It needs a myth, a lie.....a metaphorical narrative it can believe in literally.

When dealing with a herd of bovines or a chimpanzee troop, there are not many options.
There are no frontiers so we are trapped in a small area populated with imbeciles.
The strategy ought to adjust to these circumstances.
If we had open, accessible frontiers then I would say yeah...fuck' em all, full out warfare.
In crowded spaces quantity is formidable and quality loses its edge.

It's a tough call.

Why is existence counter-intuitive?
Because intuition tries to freeze what is hot.
Because life wants to atop, or control change, in a cosmos on continuous flux.
Because reality flows, and the eye can only catch a glimpse of it as it passes by.
