The Hierarchy in Action
The Game Model hierarchy for manhood is pretty much the same in both the narrow socio-sexual sphere as well as the broader human society. The model applies well in several contexts. However, the model is itself highly contextual. The descriptions of roles in the hierarchy is derived; it is specific to modern Western Civilization. The roles take their shape and delineation from the cultural context, even as they reflect something fundamental to human nature. Our modern Western world consigns men to identities as a range of reactions to the particular stresses of our society. What you have here is a snapshot in time, through the lens of a particular functional approach, printed on the paper of one man’s writing skills (such as they are). Hopefully the colors and forms of this image can reflect something more universally recognizable.
In broad terms, God’s justice requires humans organize socially in units of household, clan and tribe. Any effort to centralize control beyond that is risky at the very least, and typically evil in almost every case. Pulling diverse groups in under a single governing entity cannot avoid injustice to one or more groups. Somebody will be forced to sacrifice something essential in the process, and lose part of their identity. Anything which reduces human identity is by definition dehumanizing, and that is the fundamental sin of all human government. This is an essential element in Western Civilization, and this prophetic analysis expresses the deeper failure of Western Civilization. Here we see yet one more way in which humans defy God by rejecting His guidance, particularly in dealing with other humans. Part of this critique is reviewing what evil shapes government takes when various approaches are applied, and the shapes tend to match somewhat the characteristic roles within the Game Theory hierarchy.
In particular, our modern Western frame of reference is the background of how men have ruled each other, in the various historical forms of government which appeared in the West.
When Alpha rules, it’s monarchy, which lends itself to despotic tyranny. The genuine human need behind the rise of any monarch is the necessity of vesting someone as warlord. When things get dangerous, somebody has to be quick to respond and take command, because war by committee never succeeds. But too many good warlords enjoy too much the benefits of this power, and keep it after the battle is over. Rare indeed is the winning warrior who forgets his armor. Even more rare is the hero commander willing to take off his badge of rank. It’s his whole identity. The definition of Alpha is the self-confidence which manifests in battle as courage against the odds. The Alpha may be deluded or merely bluffing, but if his enemy flees, no one will ever know. Perception is reality, and the role of Alpha is entirely a matter of having a society which validates his self-confidence. A people ill-informed of God’s justice will be slaves to some Alpha.
Where Alpha rules, there will always be Betas, who represent the nobility. This symbiosis defines the two roles of the hierarchy. To be an Alpha is to be insulated from the herd, and without the Betas, there is no insulation. Betas derive their power and mission from this supporting role. Alpha gets nothing done without them. They willingly enter into his adventures, making them possible through their resources and encouragement. He, in turn, will make sure they lack for nothing from his excess supply.
Critical to their function is keeping an eye on what is possible in the context of the Alpha’s adventures. They protect him from failure in part by advising him, warning him if something is not possible, or unwise. He is wired to discount such things, but they are wired to counter that. Disagreements are taken for granted when everything works, because men by their nature don’t internalize such disagreements much. Still, we have ample precedent of partnership failures. Alpha can decide to destroy them all, but he must replace them with a more pleasing group. Or, they can confine him by reducing his prerogatives, even to the point of killing him. However, in a very real sense, they are the de facto owners of this system — the enforcers. The Alpha is simply the figurehead. Wise Alphas know this, playing it for all its worth, but many aren’t so wise. Without Betas, none of this is possible.
When they get too powerful, we have oligarchy in its various forms. It still amounts to tyranny and slavery for the rest. Even a faceless bureaucratic committee government is composed of real people with real privilege, but the Alpha-Beta symbiosis tends to force them out in the open. Again, where the people are ignorant of God’s justice, they will be slaves.
Deltas are the peasantry and middle class, as it were. It’s not as if they can’t usurp the system, but where they do, it’s more likely things are not what they seem. When Deltas rule, there is a pretense to democratic government. The flavor of such a government will depend on any number of factors, but it will be popular in theory. Sadly, Deltas seldom escape the real power structure because of characteristic delusions. Shortly after the plebes revolt, removing the Old Guard Alpha-Beta system, another Alpha-Beta symbiosis forms and seeks ways to reassert their advantage. As Deltas are deluded about game, they are equally deluded about most other things, and the real government will encourage and shape that delusion. Thus, people ill-informed about God’s justice will still be slaves to some Alpha-Beta system. However, the mass delusion effect is probably far worse, and the task of restoring God’s justice is much harder.
Gammas can rule, too. The effects are similar to Delta rule, because the characteristic delusions overlap. Indeed, it’s likely Delta government itself will bring the occasional Gamma into power. But it’s pernicious, in that Gammas are even more deluded, notwithstanding their higher IQ. Gamma talent tends to be more narrow, and their delusions will reflect their specialty. This gives us more extreme forms of government, reflecting an obsession with a strict orthodoxy. Gamma government is frequently insane and short-lived, terrorizing at least part of the population, if not most of it. At its best, Gamma rule is somewhat technocratic. It’s still slavery, but more insane, far less tolerant. It is particularly given to persecuting anyone attempting to promote God’s justice, as if the truth makes one a heretic from the official orthodoxy. The Alpha-Beta crew tends to be a secret conspiracy in this case, but they never go away.
Omegas typically don’t bother trying to rule. It never occurs to them. They tend to have such a poor grasp of reality, it’s all they can do to interact in any significant way with other people. When intelligent, they may try to manipulate the system for inscrutable ends, which is hard to distinguish from more mundane crime.
There are no characteristic examples of Lambda government, so far.
Sigmas are typically contemptuous of government. Should they actually get their hands on any levers of power, it’s likely to be libertarian non-government, aimed mostly at dismantling just about any system they encounter. Since history indicates humanity abhors this sort of thing, we may never see any libertarian government. Western culture in particular can’t bear the notion of decentralization, and Sigmas generally know this. They are typically critics of any existing government, with varying mixtures of purity versus pragmatism in their philosophical approach. This is why they game every social system, not just the socio-sexual. They are fully capable of arranging the destruction of any system, but they find almost every possible alternative system repugnant, particularly within the Western frame of reference, so they offer no viable solutions.
Perhaps I can put this whole topic to rest somewhat.
Game itself reflects nothing of God’s ideals; it simply organizes what can be consciously understood of fallen human nature in terms of human sexual response. It works so well in human sexual relations because it draws on more fundamental facts of human social behavior at large. The hierarchy list used here is just one of several possible lists. This is true of any model of human behavior, a topic so complex and variable, no single model can hope to cover all the bases. The wide array of schools of thought regarding human nature is itself a reflection of this basic truth. Some are more effective than others, and for different uses, but all models which remain in circulation will bear some element of that broader fundamental truth.
That we discuss a Fall itself should indicate something too easy to forget: This is not ideal, not at all what God had in mind. Some part of our human consciousness knows this, or we would never bother with studying human nature. The trouble is, the Fall itself darkens our perceptions of human nature, even our very self-analysis. That some have found an effective way of addressing the unfortunate consequences of the Fall should not lead us to believe their answer is necessarily redemptive. An awful lot of religion is merely navigating fallen nature itself in some vain hope of changing it. Most religion, particularly in the West, is just another human system, but with a pretense of some deity’s approval. The brutal fact of the Fall is we are bound under something which is not ideal, and the nature of this bondage is immutable from our position inside it. Until we see a need to get outside of this regime, we make no approach to the ideal we all instinctively know is out there.
Simply understanding the Game Theory Model is not redemptive in itself. It is by no means an attempt to escape, but to game the system as it exists. It does, most assuredly, offer personal advantages, but by its nature “advantage” means something not shared with the rest of the world. The whole objective of game is to maintain an imbalance, of keeping the majority below what little good is possible. It does not aim to raise the masses above the degrading sorrow of our human lot, but aims to steal from their fair share of what’s available, for whatever justification, and consume it upon oneself.
This competition is the very nature of human society in the broader sense. A prophetic critique of Game Theory is best offered by linking socio-sexual behavior more tightly with human behavior as whole. Prophecy is a function of demanding justice on God’s terms, and while a specific correction of game theory in the socio-sexual realm is possible, redemption is incomplete without showing how it fits in the broader context of human need, and then fixing that bigger problem.
It’s not a matter of knowing precisely what is real, but recognizing what clearly is not.
Don’t pay any attention to me; I’m simply some nut claiming to be a prophet serving Jesus Christ. Most of the other people in world claiming Him as Lord will not agree with me on some of what I have to say. In particular, they have made it clear they reject my most basic underlying assumptions about the Bible, even though we all agree it is the essential source for all we claim. We all agree Satan is roaming the earth intent on deceiving and destroying our faith and witness, but I contend they chase a lot of those deceptions without realizing it. We who wave the Bible with sincerity are considered a fringe group, and I am a member of the lunatic fringe within that.
Knowing this, I am uninhibited in my writing because I have nothing to lose being honest. That anyone reads my blog at all is for me supporting testimony of God’s power to speak through the likes of Balaam’s Ass. I don’t claim to see angels with swords, but I do see things others do not.
I’m not sure whether I was ever actually a member of the Patriot Underground, AKA the Liberty Movement, and a few other nicknames. There was no single point of departure, though significant events litter my path into their company. No such events provide any clear milestones on my way back out, but it was clearly a different route. At any rate, it was just a sojourn, an exploration, an academic examination. I wanted to see if it felt like home; it did not. Meanwhile, I found this whole thing is much bigger than anyone realizes, yet is hardly so amorphous as anyone hopes. We all see through a mirror darkly, but some societies are more deceived than others. There is no secret army of freedom fighters scattered across America waiting some signal to attack the system and set us free. It’s hot air, a false sense of self-importance. Their targets are all well known, yet still actively going about destroying what shreds of liberty we may have ever had. Had there ever been a good moment to start shooting, it is well past. The Liberty Movement is loaded with hard ridges of fact almost drowning under oceans of self deception.
They are much like feminists in that sense. The feminazis do have a fair grip on what they don’t like, but they are utterly deceived about how to change it. They refuse see it: What they don’t like is actually hard-wired human nature. That’s the real failure of feminism, one they share with every political movement. They are all a big problem, but in their claimed agendas they are all toothless. Treating them as a genuine threat, or as a savior, is proof you don’t understand the bigger picture.
That is what the most dangerous people in this world want, those true servants of Darkness. We could debate forever labels and other extraneous issues, but until we see the real threat, we can’t ask God for guidance on how to respond and expect to understand the answer. There is a core group of humans seeking to take over the world, the real power behind much of what we see, or think we see. I call them the Illuminati, but often hedge a bit on the definition of the term. While it’s academically possible to draw clear distinctions, I suspect the boundaries are much softer, varying from time to time as to whom is included in this core group. I don’t think it matters in detail, but in concept. That’s because there are an awful lot of folks who appear to belong, but do not. These are the ones we see raised as examples of ultimate evil. They become a living propaganda screen, and it’s very effective. We watch their every move, record every sound-bite falling from their lips, and fear them. They are dangerous, and their threats are real, but if we killed them all, the plot would not change.
Let me offer an example, a thread of baloney which continues to keep folks distracted. Start with the understanding the real truth won’t make you much money. It’s not as if God won’t use someone with money and power, but He typically requires them to operate in low profile, while He gives prominence to folks everyone would prefer to ignore. That’s the nature of revelation — discounting the lies man already believes and promoting the truth he rejects. If it’s really important to the mass of humanity, it’s guaranteed to miss the point Heaven makes.
A major element in keeping the masses deceived has always been false threats, to create and maintain a false fear. A very popular recurring theme is threat to some major figure in the counter-establishment press. These people make their living from their high profile. It’s not that they are lazy; they work hard. But they work hard at something which isn’t productive, just very popular. They are primarily entertainers. They always have some facts right, or no one would pay attention, much less money. But part of their stage persona is the risks they take in bringing this precious truth to light. It sells.
My importance is only what God says it is, and it’s not up to me to decide for you. I realize it will seem like a counter-schtick, but I’ve learned the best way to make room for God in this writing business is to actively and playfully discourage people taking me seriously. I’m committed to truth, and can’t afford to get in the way. If I’m deluded, it’s my problem, but if I’m a genuine prophet, His people won’t be able to ignore me. That is, those appointed to hear the message I bear will come seeking it, even to the point of shaking it out of me. Part of getting out of His way means checking, and double-checking, to make sure I have no worldly vested interest in the message itself. I don’t place ads, don’t ask for money or sell anything, or even link to other blogs, not even my own other sites, except when it strikes me as relevant to the message. Let the message stand on its own.
Here’s a message for you: If the Illuminati want you dead, it will happen. I’ll be the first to tell you my encounter with the US Marshals was not persecution. I was a random, hapless victim of a bumbling dehumanizing bureaucracy. Had they really wanted to hurt me, I’d still be in custody, despite their general incompetence. But if someone really important wants to get me, you may never hear about it. The point of my story about Mr. Thompson and the US Marshals is what my encounter tell us about the War on Drugs, along with the nature of the US government lies about the the “goodness” of their various stated missions. I’m just a witness, and my involvement is merely a point of credibility.
Many of my readers probably know all too well Rush Limbaugh is primarily an entertainer. The only real result of all his work is a bigger bank account, which is itself result of his popularity, in turn arising from telling a wealthy segment of the population whatever is most likely to keep them listening. It’s not what he knows about politics, but what he knows about marketing that makes him successful. Most of you know Alex Jones is a cheap version of the same, who only wishes he could copy Limbaugh’s success. So he taps a smaller market, which happens to be more rabid. At one time I would have given some credit to the stories reported by Wayne Madsen, but it’s starting to wear thin. Were Madsen offering anything truly threatening to the regime, he would be gone already. Never mind whether he’s got anything on the Illuminati; the names and faces in Washington DC Madsen claims to expose are not that central core group, but they have more power and competence than the US Marshals who ruined my reputation in that tiny little church in East Texas.
Almost all the stuff you and I know about as really nasty and threatening to human life does not bear the fingerprints of the Illuminati, but some of their household staff, as it were. The nuclear missiles which slipped out of the Air Force control channel and onto that bomber might be useful to the greater plans of the Dark Overlords, but shows too much bungling. Okay, so maybe you believe it’s all part of the deeper deception to allow some news to leak out about the seven men killed who knew too much, or the lost sixth missile, etc. I say it’s not central to their plans, except as a distraction. Jones and Madsen whining about threats is almost iron-clad proof they don’t matter, or they wouldn’t be able to whine publicly.
The Illuminati are not more than humans, just smarter than average and generally better informed than the rest of us. We will probably never know who they are, any more than we can reasonably identify who was among them from history. Satan only shows his face when his target already knows him. He miscalculates, too. Surely his human servants, including those who serve him knowingly, are no more capable. But that still leaves an awful lot of room for competence in keeping us deceived. All the more so when so many people are actively seeking to be deceived. Crazy as it sounds, it’s more important we understand how all the current buzz is false than it is for us to actually know the dark secrets of the real threat. The Illuminati will eventually fail, and if Our Lord tarries, we’ll get a new crop of them later.
The real conspiracy is to keep us distracted from what really matters.
