There is a common problem in explaining Republican doctrine established through hard won experience and practice to the uninitiated:
BingoBoingo that's a good idea incidentally. lotta stuff we invented last tuesday and in the brief interval became seemingly "older than dirt" / "in kindergarten!!!" is in fact entirely unheard of outside the walls. - Mircea Popescu
Thusly for the benefit of myself and whoever might care, I will collect some information and thoughts in one place. Like I recently did with the other thing. I will try to keep this at the introductory level eschewing bleeding edge proposals, details of shortwave propagation, and The Republic Woodpecker in favor of practices which can be utilized today.
The Problem And Its Evolution
Back in the decade of 00's tech companies and the fledling social media companies which would soon ossify into the familiar monsters we know today were all about Free Speech or as some activists have been pushed to refer to it in an attempt to meme while mocking mechanical censors Freeze Peach. The year tech companies began their frog boiling transition away from Free Speech was 2011, around the time David Freese gave his speech after the World Series game six miracle performance against the Texas Rangers. Back then Occupy Wall Street was a thing, Hussein Bahamas was gearing up to campaign for his second term, and 4 years later many of those same activist and voters tired of "More of the Same" would join the Make America Great Again train.
For much of the Internet's first decades memes and trolling which touched the political frequently failed to gain substantial traction without mainstream media blessing.1 The push to maintain a dialectic was rarely threatened, though 4chan's /b/ community could occasionally break through. As ineffective as the Occupy Movement was, it marked the turning point where younger internet aware folk were beginning to utilize the social engineering and influence tactics that allowed the Clintons to make the transition from hippy anti war protestors to Pantsuit wearing warmongers imposing their violence on the Middle East and the World.
The fiat powers that be very much want to resist their slide into irrelevance even as their power to achieve their desired outcomes is measurably fading. It is important to understand that why they want you silenced is not "hate speech" at all. It is because they need to define their opposition straw man, and if your words actual words are avaible that task becomes harder. Hence the push to marginalize the fiatist Pantsuit's actual opposition. With this we background we can move on to resisting censorship.
Considering The Best Possible Outcome For An Anonymous Creator
Anonymity is great for thieves and "law enforcement" agents subverting movements in the COINTEL tradition, but it is absolutely awful for writers, thinkers, and actual people trying to shape the world.
Consider the following example of the best case outcome for the work of an "anonymous"2
This fellow made an image at the intersection of at least three memes3 which I found clever enough to share. I have no idea who produced it, which prevents me from searching for other works by the creator of this wonderful piece. If I could tie this image to an author I could share other works further increasing their influence on the world. At the same time neither myself nor the author of the image have any hard guarantees that the image author is actually anonymous to the adversaries he ought to be most concerned with. If his enemies manufacter a pretext to bring suffering to him, I will lack anyway to know he is suffering and bring attention to his plight. Should the author wish to take credit for this work of art in the future, he is likely to be plagued by doubt unless vouched for by people with strong reputations, and even then his authorship may still be disputed.
To summarize the fate of the successful Anon:
- One or more pieces of work get recognition, each one standing independently
- The Author's unified body of work is doomed to fragmentation
- Potential failings in the Author's pursuit of anonymity create substantial risk without any chance of martyrdom should they meet misfortune at the hands of the enemy.
Outside of this best case scenario the production of anons is noise and discarded as such.
The Power Of Identity
The Daily Stormer survives today entirely on the names of Andrew Anglin and Weev. Are they doing as well as they could have if they would have aligned themselves with The Most Serene Republic? Probably not, but they are indeed managing to continue publishing and being read.
The doxing fear is largely a manufactered insecurity pushed for the purpose of promoting mouse behavior over man behavior. The worst outcomes of from doxing which get paraded around to promote the manufactered insecurity tend to involve people who get into and continue to sustain heated emotional arguments with people they shouldn't be arguing with, or people selected by lottery to endure the daily hate. The truth about doxing is the people it hits hardest are the people who were most confident in their anonymity and a class of people commonly referred to a "lolcows" who are socially maladapted in ways invite bullying.
Consider the case of GAW miners during Qntra's early history. Homero "Josh" Garza and his band of scammers were running a scheme suckering idiots and they had retained lawyers that graduated law school and were memebers of relevant state bar associations and everything that goes along with that. They had struggled to put together the names of the not at all secret Qntra principals who were calling them Jizz moppers and shitting all over their scam. During this same period another aspiring Bitcoin news site tried leveraging the obviousness of the GAW scam into a launch pad and they got bogged down in the fiat legal system.
The winning move is not to fear doxing, but to gird yourself so that doxing is pointless. Should the media's daily hate focus on me I will likely be temporarily inconvenienced to some degree, but the fallout would likely be a larger net positive for me than them and so the studious ignoring is likely to continue. When an FBI agent and a US Treasury agent knocked on my front door in August 2014, I did not hide the fact there was a conversation on my front lawn. I fucking blogged the encounter while it was fresh in my hungover mind!
I am pretty sure I hit the publish button well before the pair finished their several hundred mile drive back to Peoria, Illinois. Three years later I flew to Uruguay using a passport in my name and four years later I am still blogging. Just about everything in my life now is better in every way that it was in August 2014. If I had been the sort of idiot who instead of blogging his encounter went and bought a fake passport before fleeing in panic for the purpose of preserving "anonymity" at all costs, I almost certainly would have had problems.
Freedom lives in truth and the light. A pseudonym or pen name can be fine, but you defnitely want an identity as a writer. If you truly fear the damage doxing can do to your life, start fixing your life to mitigate that fear.
The Importance Of WoT
Without aweb of trust you can't be part of an actual social network. Having a WoT presence tied to your identity, as defined by your posession of a cryptographic public/private key pair, is the essential element for having franchise now an into the future. Not having a cryptographically enforced WoT identity means other people are left to guess "Well, that sounds like something he would say" or you become dependent on someone with a cryptographically enforced WoT indentity vouching for you based off of in person interactions. Not having a WoT identity negates the myriad of benefits promised by this world wide web.
When you depend on a social network without a cryptographic WoT to defend the integrity of you identity you make yourself entirely dependent on the platform provider's good will. Such a dependence is unnecessary, unsanitary, and people will judge you negatively for it. For all of the good sane things appearing on Heartiste, understand that Heartiste is handicapped by a lack of WoT presence. Heartist has readers, and commenter, and maybe even has a contingency plan for when the axe comes for him and Wordpress.com censors him. Yet, his lack of WoT presence is nothing other than a handicap. Suppose Wordpress hands the keys of his blog over to an agent of the deep state he criticises so much, and the deep state agent begins a series of posts that frog boil the blog's tone away from sanity and towards the unhinged? How does Heartiste repudiate the imposter? With a WoT presence Heartiste simply signs a and publishes a statement alerting everyone to what happened, his pseudonym stays safe, any anyone who wants to verify the authenticity of the statement can thanks to public key cryptography. This is the GPG social contract.
Without a cryptographically enforced WoT identity, merely being banned from a platform is the least of the evils a hostile tech company can inflict. Refusal to register in a WoT leads to insanity like proposing Trump "regulate" internet companies, an outcome which similarly creates unecessary dependence on a benevolent thousand year Trumpreich while leaving plenty of room for he said zhe said mischief and account "hacking" in the end. With a WoT, you don't need daddy's approval and intervention. At some point you have to take responsibility instead of outsourcing it.
Censorship Resistant Hosting And Pizarro
So you've got a WoT identity. Why host on Pizarro? Why not bounce around among heathen services like a pinball constantly passing GPG signed statements as you get booted from place to place for "wrong" speech?
You pay Pizarro, because Pizarro pays Pizarro's upstream enough to hurt if Pizarro has to move. The reason for contracting with a independent datacenter in Uruguay is pointedly not the culture. The reason is to get out of the USG/EU cuck NATO reich and its Pantsuit media panic bubble. Microsoft is big, the loss of whatever money Gab paid Microsoft for azure hosting is less than pocket change to microsoft. The revenue loss to Godaddy when they steal domain names for wrong think does not hurt Godaddy.
Now, when an independent datacenter provider has a customer paying them for a rack and pipe to the rack, losing that customer would materially hurt their balance sheet. Keeping good relations with our upstream means Pizarro has a WoT enforced good neighbor policy. That means don't do retarded shit only cops do like trying to call todler fucking child porn free speech. The only people who like child porn and want to publish it are cops. The only people who want to send spam emails are people who don't understand email is functionally dead, and email spam is a -ev pursuit that has been milked to death. If you want censorship resistant hosting, Pizarro wants you. If what you want to do is legally dubious in a fiat jurisdiction, we ask you to consult us because there are crosses I am willing to die on and then there's running a tor darknet market where I can tell you to just seek out a cartel instead for greater profits. Pizarro's commitment to WoT hosting means I am putting my physical person and well being at risk for our customers while mod6, asciilifeform, and other investors are betting their precious capital on this taking off.
If you are a person insteresting in saving personhood and everything that makes the world nice, hit me up and Pizarro will treat you right. If you are a Pantsuit worshipping FBI stooge interesting in flashing your toddler fucking home made porn at the world, I will be happy with your consent to arrange for a medical professional trained in either dentistry or vaccination to bite off your dick on the beach before you are fed to sea wolves.
