One of the most important (and under-appreciated) social science studies to have been linked at the Chateau had to do with the escape velocity of revolutionary political movements. Unfortunately, I gave up trying to find the relevant post in the archives after fifteen minutes spent trawling for it, but I recall the gist of the study’s conclusion.

A game-theoretical mathematical algorithm was applied to large scale movements of a social and political nature, to determine the number of people required for a movement to take off and snowball into a revolutionary fire that sweeps away the megaliths of the old order. (The algorithm is similar to the one used to discover that ethnocentric societies win out over other types of societies (e.g., humanitarianism) when they directly compete.)

What the study found was that a successful revolution only needed to start with 10% of the total population as active and passionate advocates of the cause. That’s a surprisingly low number at first glance, but it meshes with the historical record of past social movements. For instance, not many people know that a large majority of Americans in 1970 supported the Vietnam War, even though this was during the height of the flower power anti-war movement that would eventually succeed in ending the war and abolishing conscription — and fifty years later making the girls’ bathroom safe for men wearing dresses.

I was reminded of this study when I saw the video of cuckryan getting booed off the stage at a Wisconsin event.

Cuckryan, loathsome creature he is, won his August primary by a comfortable margin (although Paul Nehlen made deeper inroads than previous challengers had done against cuckryan). How could that be, I asked myself, when he seems to be despised by his constituents? And what does this say about an anti-globalist revolution?

The answer lies hidden in that gem of a study I mention above. Far from a majority of Wisconsinites are shouting SHAME ON YOU at cuckryan, but that vocal minority who do — that glorious 10% bringing all the heart and the balls to the populist nationalism rebellion — are influencing future events in ways that their small numbers prevent them from fully comprehending.


That’s it.

You get a dedicated 10% to stand athwart the globalism whore machine, yelling FUCK YOU TO HELL, and you can move mountains….and cucks from their corner stools.

So the next time you’re feeling despondent in your shiv-right isolation and surrounded on all sides by despicable cucks and john leibowitzian shitlibs, be invigorated in the knowledge that your tattered and dispersed regiment of realtalkers, fueled on nothing but white hot rage and righteousness, is striking a mighty blow straight at the heart of the corrupt and degenerate ruling class and the wicked Clinton witch.

Why do you think the elite are pulling out all the stops to kill this numerically insignificant alt-right rebellion? Because they know its potential power, and they are afraid.


PS This is the study I was looking for.

        They then look at an old church carved out of stone and pass by it like it is below them. That church is a devotion to the greatness of man and the masculine and art and power. They are afraid of greatness so they belittle it. They are afraid of what the old masters did because it was all men/masculine powers that did those things. So to them the old masters are to be reviled.

        The fyminine modern art these days is Yoko Ono screaming in to a microphone. Or operas dedicated to menstruation that are all about screeching and victimizing themselves. Music now is depraved. Rap, Hip Hop and pop. All niggerized low intelligence no talent garbage. Why, because the true masters were Men. White Men. Asian Men. Not so much from the dark incontinent.

        The important question isn’t whether there is a God, it’s whether any particular belief system is the true path to that God.

        Most rational people, starting without prior conditioning, would see no reason to privilege Christianity, or any other system based on revelation, as being privy to special knowledge about God’s will. Like, the Church just rolls in one day and tells me some weird things happened 2000 years ago, and I’m supposed to believe they now have the ability to communicate with the Supreme Being?

        If you don’t think any particular belief system indicates the true way to God, then who the heck cares if there’s a God or not? It shouldn’t make any difference.

      • This thread should be interesting now. To the red pilled agnostics & others that put a premium on ZFG attitude, action, etc, I find their rejection of Christianity strange. God has the ultimate, for lack of a less vulgar term, ZFG attitude, and it was clearly manifested in His son Christ while here with us. Now I know modern Churchianity is ripe for mocking and scorn, and it is richly deserved for the cartoon projection they’ve made of what Christian faith should be defined as, and the purpose of Jesus’s ministry. It was never about the feelz , equality, diversity, & niceness they’ve packaged it up as. But even a cursory reading of the actual Scriptures, OT & NT quickly dispel that nonsense. However, it is the Holy Spirit that opens a man’s heart to Christ and is essential for belief/faith. This remains a mystery as to why some will accept the Gospel truth and others reject, and/or are apathetic to its calling.

        It makes a BIG difference! Religions have been the primary carriers of culture. It’s pretty obvious that societies that are Christian (particularly the Protestant version) or Confucian are more successful than Muslim or animist societies. It’s not about God as much as what your values and belief systems are.


    • Pantheism. The only choice for based, aware, intelligent people:

      The universe itself is God. Existence itself is god. You are God. The laptop I type this into is God. Air is God. An apple, a roach, a banana, a rock… We’re all in the same ball of goo. Everything is everything… God. Existence. Everything is God.

      We humans are a rare example of conscious life in this universe. There’s no magic man in the sky, agnostics be damned. There is no creator. There is only existence.

  9. I think one of the flaws within the alt right is the strategic pursuit to win over the hearts and minds of normies. It makes sense on the surface, but looking a little deeper it appears flawed. Correct me if I’m wrong, but no revolution has ever had majority support. Revolutions are led and fought by a highly active minority, usually topping out at around 33% of the total population. Furthermore, the best case scenario is a normie majority that passively supports the revolution, but that won’t help you when you’re surrounded by a mob of googles who’ve been organized and riled up by skypes. Normies should be regarded as women. Don’t try to win them over, just be a ZFG Trumpian who annihilates the shitlibs and globalists. Once you’ve accomplished this, the normies will tell you how they believed in you all along and then go back to watching sportsball…

  20. I’ve heard this argument before, but it doesn’t pass my simple ‘what if’ test.
    What if there are two movements that both have 10%? Or 3 of them? Who wins?

    For example: what if there is one movement, let’s call it ‘Alt-Right, that represents 10% of the population, and a second movement, let’s call it ‘progressive,’ that also represents 10% of the population. How does the theory predict which movement will win?

    The theory seems to depend on the concept that 10% of a population are passionate, and the other 90% are indifferent, waiting to be told what to do. But this fundamental assumption just doesn’t seem to reflect reality.



    • re: which 10% prevails…

      The key is Intolerance. For us, that means absolute intolerance of Establishment candidates.

      “The minority rule [shows] us how it all it takes is a small number of intolerant virtuous people with skin in the game, in the form of courage, for society to function properly…

      “…you think that because some extreme right or left wing party has, say, the support of ten percent of the population that their candidate would get ten percent of the votes. No: these baseline voters should be classified as “inflexible” and will always vote for their faction. But some of the flexible voters can also vote for that extreme faction…and these people are the ones to watch out for as they may swell the numbers of votes for the extreme party…”


    • Look to the Weimar Republic…

      Various political factions, each with probably no more than 5% to 10%, had literal machine gun battles in the streets… and each had their own cadre of headbreakers, who seldom saw a moment of repose.

      This is why the side identified with Law & Order usually comes out on top when it comes around to the sheeple voting.


  21. Leonidas needed 300 men. 10%…will do.


  22. Put the onus back on the progressives. Before you state any position, demand they state their position on, for example, Rotherham, Clinton’s rape history etc.
    Ask them if they’ve read “Animal Farm” or “1984” and, if not, discussion over.

    It’s not your duty to educate these morons.


  23. In a similar vein, I think it was the inimitable Mark Steyn who pointed out that once the Muslim population in a city or country reaches 10% they start exerting their power and demanding that the natives start adapting to their culture rather than the other way around.

    Good news again. Nature always wins. Most of the people in the rag tag group don’t like each other or themselves and all the premises are lies. Lies are expensive. Nature hates expensive things unless they build future value. The amount of cash, tape and Rube Goldberg (oh dear !) truss work it took to hold it all together must have bean something. All this effort spent on the natural equivalent of dollar store party supplies.

      This line got me thinking, along with the megaphone, about how such a group could come last since they’re each trying to out “victimize” the other. They’re each trying to grab the power from one another, while at the same time, being the victim in order to obtain power. (Damn, I just went cross-eyed.)

      And tangentially–I was at the supermarket yesterday after work and for some reason it as busy, not sure why at that hour, but everyone was some ethnic transplant or ghetto looking fool, I felt more alienated than at any other point since shopping there. It’s not an upscale supermarket, but more of the tweener types, where it’s not totally ghetto, but not on the Whole Foods scale.
