To speak comfortably to blue-pill people for hours without straining, you just need to barf up a few code words. I will share the secrets only with you; this article will self-destruct 30 seconds after you open it. That line is the only tongue-in-cheek part of this post, but you will not be sure about that until the end.
The podcast with Chris Voss and James Altucher HERE explains how the magic works. It is a fascinating story about Voss's experience as an FBI hostage negotiator. Scan the rest of this article, then come back to the link. I also read and heavily recommend his book:
I do not claim to be a master negotiator or Voss's best student; I simply generalized some of his messages. Chris says that whenever a negotiation runs down for a moment, you should repeat the last few words the other person said. This is never noticed as a technique and is always politely received. Try it on anyone right now.
Voss preserves rapport and is never rude. He gently probes, keeps the conversation flowing, and the other person eventually tells him their bottom line. With this method, you do not have to turn over your cards or concede much. No one gets adversarial or pissed off, and you can close the deal if it works for you.
My innovation was to use this technique in my medical practice all day, every day, for years. I hate to admit that patients rarely followed my professional advice—few doctors will—but at least my patients understood that I was listening to them, which is what they primarily wanted. My goal—seldom realized—was to establish enough rapport to influence them.
When people are encouraged to talk, they think the other person is a master conversationalist. The less you say, the more they appreciate you.
My wife always told me this more eloquently, "drink a cup of shut the f@@@ up, Robert." She repeatedly reminded me that people don't care what you know unless they know you care. She is a natural influencer.
The best part of this strategy is that if you are bored with someone, you can do math problems in your head or think about your mistress instead of remembering anything he says. All that is ever required is to regurgitate the last three words that came out of his mouth. In my defense, I am seldom bored with people and find nearly everyone interesting. Nearly.
Before I tell you how this fits into today's dystopian conversations, I will share another advanced skill you can learn in ten seconds. Read carefully; it sounds too good to be true, and you will think I am joking. This can calm spouses, defuse road rage, and make arguments disappear. It is a phenomenal rapport builder if you can swallow your pride.
I call it the "magic three." You let the other person have their say until they run out of words. Pause a moment, look them deeply in the eyes, and say, You are right, I am wrong, and I'm sorry. Sometimes handholding helps, but in our era of fabricated sexual assaults, be careful with that one. For some people, you may have to go through the process several times. It works so beautifully that spouses calm down even though they know your tricks. You must keep a straight face, but sincerity is unnecessary.
Caveat: if you try this more than three times in a row without the magic working, consider leaving, maybe permanently. Second caveat: occasionally, getting aggressive and drawing limits works better, but this is risky, and these situations are rare.
The following is a variant of the second strategy one of my friends learned when a much-admired senior doctor pulled it on him. After the other person finally stops speaking, the doc would ask, "Is that how you really feel?" When the complainer replied with some heat, "Yeah, that's how I feel," my friend's mentor would press close to their face and shout, "Well, you can just F*** OFF." (Thanks to NJ, MD, for this).
Although the story is true, I have never had the fortitude to try it and cannot recommend this technique based on either principles or experience.
You may be sick of my color commentary and want me to unveil the passwords so you can delete this email. Please give me a moment to share a little more first.
Many blue-pill people have no discernible thought process. Listening to them closely can damage your brain, so you should ignore anything coming from their mouths. But when they stop speaking, pause, gaze at them, repeat a few of their last words, then salt your response with a random selection of the magic words.
Since this communication pattern is now standard practice for everyone, from talking heads to medical academics, no one will ever call you out for not making sense. It will remain your undetected inside joke even when you lampoon people by overdoing it.
Wikipedia is a fantastic resource, at least for these words. The first article I checked randomly was a perfect example, so I bolded the codes and reproduced it below. Notice the repetition, incoherency, leaps of logic, and the combination and recombination of these codes in series. Someone is hired to slap this stuff together—or, more likely, artificial "intelligence” writes it.
Cultural Marxism conspiracy theory
The term "Cultural Marxism" refers to a far-right antisemitic conspiracy theory which claims that Western Marxism is the basis of continuing academic and intellectual efforts to subvert Western culture. The conspiracy theory misrepresents the Frankfurt School as being responsible for modern progressive movements, identity politics, and political correctness, claiming there is an ongoing and intentional subversion of Western society via a planned culture war that undermines the Christian values of traditionalist conservatism and seeks to replace them with the culturally liberal values of the 1960s.
Although similarities with the Nazi propaganda term "Cultural Bolshevism" have been noted, the contemporary conspiracy theory originated in the United States during the 1990s.[note 1] Originally found only on the far-right political fringe, the term began to enter mainstream discourse in the 2010s and is now found globally. The conspiracy theory of a Marxist culture war is promoted by right-wing politicians, fundamentalist religious leaders, political commentators in mainstream print and television media, and white supremacist terrorists, and has been described as "a foundational element of the alt-right worldview". Scholarly analysis of the conspiracy theory has concluded that it has no basis in fact.[10
This jargon is meaningless except as a compliance handshake. Each word is a definitive marker for lies, however, so if you hear any of it and assume the opposite, you will almost always be right.
The whole process is an attempt by the Thought Police to confuse and intimidate us, and it has turned into a lexicon:
The king of this is conspiracy theory, which the CIA developed after the JFK assassination to discredit doubters of their coverup. It has been used as a weapon ever since.
Doubters, deniers. Example: election denier.
Transgender/transphobe/TG. Criticizing this destructive phenomenon is an American "third rail" that can preclude publication by the mainstream. Most Euros have resisted this.
NAZI/Hitler is used ubiquitously as labels for far right conservatives.
Racism also applies to about anything. (Critical race theory.)
Any pronoun idiocy, such as using their/them rather than a feminine or masculine form. I have been guilty of this and left at least one of these mistakes above as an Easter egg hunt for you. Sorting this out is designed to make your head hurt.
The idea that the difference between sexes (two entire chromosomes) is culturally fabricated, yet the difference between races (invisible genetically) is consequential.
Antisemite has been so overused that any relationship to reality—or even Jews—has been lost.
Fact checks universally reveal a deep-state propaganda source, as does using the word disinformation or misinformation.
Woke/DEI (diversity, equity, inclusion)/ESG (environmental, social, governance)
Domestic terrorism: anti-mask, anti-vaccine, anti-critical race theory, questioning the outcome of an election, calling out radical LGBTQ+ activists for their grooming behavior.
Any reference to Trump. Though his flaws are legion, the screaming criticism has dulled us into indifference.
These words are easy to spot, stink of jingoism, and are purposefully vague to allow painting with a broad brush. Call yourself or your friends out when you hear them used. Anyone who mouths this nonsense is fooled, careless, a cretin, or hypnotized by propaganda.
However, keeping these ideas ready for use gives you special powers. In many social and professional situations, you must pass through heavily guarded checkpoints behind enemy lines. Sun Tsu tells us, all warfare is based on deception. Lying to anyone—even to hostiles—may be unnatural, but it is a survival skill, for we are at war.
Remember Machiavelli: Keep your friends close but your enemies closer. Stay cool, skeptical, and ignore anything you hear until you can confirm what happened after the fact. Worrying about predictions will give anyone hives.
