[From “Sodomize The Weak”]

“Sodomize” is a verb that in the heterosexual West implies subjugation and dominance, where “the weak” is part of a binary opposite, which means that the stronger are subjugating the weaker. In other words, a Darwinistic view: the more apt must dominate the less apt.

This amounts to a general defense and praise of elitism, since the implication of “weak” is that something stronger will take its place.


At this point, we have an organic version of the bubble sort: that which is better rises, and that which is less-better falls. This gradually sets up a hierarchy by comparing all to all, such that actual order is achieved with the best on top and the others arrayed appropriately below them, as one would find in a well-functioning military, business or academic unit.

How do we define the best? If we are intelligent, we do not, but instead recognize that it has two general attributes: competence and the related ability to discern what is not just utilitarian-adequate but also “good,” in the sense of improving life as far as can be. We want not just those who are effective, but those who improve the qualitative nature of the situation around them as well.

In other words, if you set up a computer with a billion virtual objects in it of unequal positions or characteristics and give them each the instruction to sodomize the weak, you will shortly end up with a highly organized arrangement where the most powerful objects are on top. If those are also wise, the order will be beautiful, elegant, awe-inspiring and so on.

This is how nature works. Your planet gets hit by an asteroid or virus and the dinosaurs fade away, but they are replaced by new creatures with the ability to survive such things. These creatures start as dumb rodents, but after millions of years of sodomizing the weak, you end up with majestic horses, humans who make death metal, whales (the ocean not SJW kind) and panthers.
