SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police (The Laws of Social Justice Book 1)
a book by Vox Day
(our site's book review)
The Amazon blurb says that Social Justice Warriors have plagued mankind for more than 150 years, but only in the last 30 years has their ideology become dominant in the West. Having invaded one institution of the cultural high ground after another, from corporations and churches to video games and government, there is nowhere that remains entirely free of their intolerant thought and speech policing.
Because the SJW agenda of diversity, tolerance, inclusiveness, and equality flies in the face of both science and observable reality, SJWs relentlessly work to prevent normal people from thinking or speaking in any manner that will violate their ever-mutating Narrative. They police science, philosophy, technology, and even history in order to maintain the pretense that their agenda remains inevitable in a modern world that contradicts it on a daily basis.
'What gives you the right to call that lady overweight rather than the PC term dessert-avoidance-challenged?' 'But officer, she's my wife and she asked for my opinion.' 'Hey, are you getting smart with me? I'll ruin you and smear you and get you fired!'
The book is named after the First Law of SJW: SJWs always lie. SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police (The Laws of Social Justice Book 1) is a useful guide to understanding, anticipating, and surviving SJW attacks from the perspective of a man who has not only survived, but thrived, after experiencing multiple attempts by Social Justice Warriors to disqualify, discredit, and disemploy him in the same manner they have successfully attacked Nobel Laureates, technology CEOs, broadcasters, sports commentators, school principals, and policemen. It analyzes well-known SJW attacks as well as the two most successful examples of resistance to the SJW Narrative.
Written by Vox Day, three-time Hugo nominee who is described as the most hated man in science fiction by Black Gate and The Wall Street Journal, SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police (The Laws of Social Justice Book 1) is a powerful weapon in the cultural war against the thought police.
SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police (The Laws of Social Justice Book 1) is a powerful weapon in the cultural war against the thought police (from Orwell's novel 1984)
If you think thought police is overstating the case, we invite you to examine this quote: “Every word of every email sent through Gmail and every click made on a Chrome browser is watched by the company. ‘We don’t need you to type at all,’ [Google co-founder Eric] Schmidt once said. ‘We know where you are. We know where you’ve been. We can more or less know what you’re thinking about.’” (Source: What Kind of Information Does Google and Facebook Have on You?, Dr. Mercola)
Note: To be clear, we are against harrassment, racism, sexism, xenophobia, ageism, sizeism, or any other form of unfair, unwarranted, and unwanted discrimination. We'd like everyone to be treated kindly and sensitively, not insultingly or hurtfully. If Day is engaging in hate speech in videogames, blogs, emails, or speech, his actions are to be condemned. But, on the other hand, we loathe the fact that SJWs are inclined to act like thought-police, speech-police, and even race-police toward everyone around them and will try to marginalize, discredit, smear, and destroy anyone who fails to conform to their thought-policing with sufficient obedience and enthusiasm.
These SJWs need to use direct nonhateful communication in emails, blogs, articles, and elsewhere online. They have no right to marginalize, discredit, smear, and destroy anyone not meeting their PC standards. It's a free country but people need to be more sensitive to the feelings of others in any type of communication or video game creation. There are a lot of examples of SJW harrassment in this article that are over the top and unacceptable. And, notice that these actions are not productive nor do they improve situations. Wrecking careers is a power move from seriously disturbed people with self-esteem issues—people who wrongly believe that bringing others down raises them up.
Example: Black Lives Matter posters are an unintentional affront to many whites but a legitimate feeling of most blacks and PC liberals. People should be able to display their opinions on placards all they want. But when whites, feeling marginalized and discriminated against, display White Lives Matter placards because they feel Black Lives Matter placards imply that white lives don't matter, they should be met with the same degree of tolerance and acceptance they respectfully afforded the Black Lives Matter crowd. But they are not—they're insulted and called racist even though the Black Lives Matter crowd was not insulted and called racist.
Black Lives Matter posters are an unintentional affront to many whites but a legitimate feeling of most blacks and PC liberals
On both sides are real humans with real feelings that deserve respect. When the PC thought police decide that whites that want to feel they matter are racist and blacks that want to feel they matter are NOT racist, the SJW warriors scream it's because white on black violence is epidemic. When people look into this and find out THE OPPOSITE IS TRUE, and black on white violence is epidemic, instead of stopping screaming THEY SCREAM LOUDER (proving Day's point), because SJW warriors always lie and never care about truth. SJW warriors will then launch an ugly campaign of trying to ruin the lives of all those who won't subscribe to their lies and who won't crumble under the screams of their thought police, getting people fired and ruining reputations. The worst part of this is that they have terrorized famous people and media people and have gotten the media to subscribe to their lies to avoid being subjected to SJW terrorism—which is extortion.
As Day sees it: "[An SJW] is inclined to thought-police, speech-police, and even race-police everyone around him and will try to marginalize, discredit, and destroy anyone who fails to conform to his thought-policing with sufficient obedience and enthusiasm."
Roosh Valizadeh says "As someone who has been the target of SJW attacks for years, and who has helped bring awareness to their totalitarian interpretation of justice, I began reading Vox Day’s SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police (The Laws of Social Justice Book 1) with enthusiasm. Not only does it go into depth about what SJW’s think and how they behave, it also gives you a strategy for fighting back when they come after you or your organization. SJW’s have so infected Western institutions and corporations that it is inevitable you will come face-to-face with an SJW who hopes to harm you and your livelihood. For that reason, SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police (The Laws of Social Justice Book 1) amounts to essential reading for all men. It’s the most important book I read in 2015.
"In the universities, in the churches, in the corporations, in the professional associations, in the editorial offices, in the game studios, and just about everywhere else you can imagine, free speech and free thought are under siege by a group of fanatics as self-righteous as Savonarola, as ruthless as Stalin, as ambitious as Napoleon, and as crazy as Caligula. They are the Social Justice Warriors, the SJWs, the self-appointed thought police who have been running amok throughout the West since the dawn of the politically correct era in the 1990s. Vox methodically breaks down the enemy that we have been fighting for years, including their strengths, weaknesses, and modes of attack. While information on fighting SJWs are available on various sites and forums, this is the first time it has been assembled in one cohesive work." (Source: The Most Important Book Of 2015: SJWs Always Lie, Roosh Valizadeh)
As Day sees it: "Believing that a person’s sex, race and orientation defines the acceptable limits of the opinions they may hold is called 'identity politics.' It’s a bizarre but flourishing cult in America today that makes fools of its supporters by presenting an insultingly reductionist view of human nature. (Identity Politics is a tendency for people of a particular religion, race, social background, etc., to form exclusive political alliances, moving away from traditional broad-based party politics. Example: discounting white male opinions in a classroom when discussing slavery)
Like sadistic preachers of popular fiction, the SJWs are dictating to the rest of us how we shall live
"We’re familiar with the attitude from stereotypical,
sadistic preachers of popular fiction, but not for a
hundred years here in the West have so many people from
so many pedestals insisted on dictating to the rest of us
how we shall live.
". . . The social justice tendency is a narrow, bossy and often prurient prism from which to view humanity, and one that has acquired, as this book ably demonstrates, an especially poisonous self-righteousness in the last few years." This is political correctness gone insane—and it is anything but correct. It is one of the ugliest forms of authoritarianism since the Inquisition. The best way to deal with these know-it-all losers is ridicule.

SJW assaults are political correctness gone insane—and are anything but correct—they're one of the ugliest forms of authoritarianism since the Inquisition
April 8, 2005: David Horowitz was hit in the face with a pie Wednesday during a speech at Butler University. The attack was the third incident in the last 10 days in which a conservative speaker has been doused with food while trying to speak on a Midwestern campus. And this was not the first time the man was assaulted on campuses by spoiled PC-obsessed brats.
Campus leftists don't believe in free speech. SJWs, in a politically correct trance of self-righteousness, believe in one-sided free speech. All speech is fine, as long as it is what THEY believe. You either parrot back to them their PC beliefs or you'll be harassed, trolled, insulted, attacked with pie in the face, or physically assaulted. They have no concept of free speech, which they believe should be a right that only those that are PC SJWs should enjoy. Why their teachers are failing to show them the error of their ways is a mystery. Soon there will be no such thing as a discussion. There will only be Fox News farces where people talk over each other or even scream. No one will learn anything—they'll just experience emotional catharsis at one another's expense. It is irrelevant whether or not we agree with the far-right things the man—or any person—has to say.

SJWs are going insane and getting violent and crazy. Where exactly is these conservative speakers' "social justice"?
One should not attend such presentations unless one lets the man talk without interruption. Conservative speakers now have bodyguards when they visit universities. The SJWs, in a politically correct trance of self-righteousness, beieve that they are so PC that they're entitled to do whatever they want, but the non-PC speaker should have to endure their abuse. What they fail to realize is that they are making the conservatives' points for them. The left is spoiled, entitled, smart-mouthed brats who are too dumb to discuss and ponder, so they simply have self-righteous tantrums and make fools of themselves, making leftists look like illiterate morons. SJWs don't like to be seen as the vicious attack dogs they are because that flies in the face of their determination to present themselves as victims holding the moral high ground, when—in truth—they are victims of nothing but their own foolishness.

In 1992 Horowitz founded Heterodoxy, a monthly magazine focused on exposing what it described as excessive political correctness on United States college and university campuses. He was entirely correct—PC has gotten way out of hand and it is ruining universities by the dozens. The worst move college deans are making is giving these misguided SJW people power—any power. Deans should wake up to the fact that the SJWs are using the PC cover of social justice not to create or empower social justice but to deprive others of social justice. Nothing short of expulsion will wake these misguided losers up to the error of their ways.
A SJW's idea of discussion
Protesters at Middlebury College shouted down a conservative speaker, then shamelessly attacked him and a professor, like they were street thugs. There is NO excuse for this type of thing, no matter if "their delicate little feelings got hurt." Having watched a college speech from American Nazi Party leader George Lincoln Rockwell (the "American Hitler") in the mid-1960s, we saw disagreement handled by raising one's hand, getting called on, and expressing an opinion—even passionately. No violence or even insults, in spite of Rockwell's provocateur style. At Middlebury, Vermont, in 2017 controversial rightwing speaker Charles Murray was shouted down and never even got to speak. The students should have been suspended, but they were not since it might have "hurt their feelings." (Source: Protesters at Middlebury College shout down speaker, attack him and a professor, Eugene Volokh, Washington Post)Thomas M. Nichols discusses the consequences of a society that continues to degrade the benefits of intellectual debate by responding to every disagreement with tantrums. See The Death of Expertise: The Campaign Against Established Knowledge and Why it Matters.

A dynamic fraud used as a tool of the SJW police is “microaggressions.” It can be anything: ask about ancestry, fail to notice race, notice race, assume that a person of Hispanic appearance speaks Spanish—all microaggressions. SJWs are able to read minds and divine deeply hidden prejudices mere mortals cannot see.

People who think they are doing nothing wrong will be upset that we are telling them to change, says a SJW warrior. The fact that getting in someone's face and hollering at them and being rude and insulting is the absoute worst way to get them to change or even listen to your rants doesn't bother them, since they don't really care how you respond. They just want to get acknowledged by their PC friends for standing up to the big bad oppressors and being the most PC person in the college. But being an oppressor to stop an oppressor has no chance of working. It just leads to mob violence, hatred, and both sides hardening their positions. Rather than changing, the fellow will predictably be even more sure he is right and more determined in his certainty that the ranters are wrong and fooish. Okay, since this is the exact opposite of the result they claim they are shooting for, doesn't it make them hypocrites to wreck conservatives' presentations? They are conditioning the guy to be even more "racist, sexist, patriarchal" or whatever their gripe is. Why? To make themselves feel better rather than to change anyone or anything. It all gets down to low self esteem.
The goal of the SJW police: censor everything not in agreement with them—similar to everything is fake news if it doesn't agree with Trump's ideas
On the other had, whatever passes the standards of the SJW police will be shouted from the rooftops until our ears ring
- a philosophy of activism for activism’s sake
- a dedication to rooting out behavior they deem problematic, offensive, or unacceptable in others
- a custom of primarily identifying individuals by their sex, race, and sexual orientation
- a hierarchy of intrinsic morality based on the identity politics of sex, race, and sexual orientation
- a quasi-religious belief in equality, diversity, and the inevitability of progress
- an assumption of bad faith on the part of all non-social justice warriors
- an opinion that motivation matters more than consequences
- a certainty that they are the only true and valid defenders of the oppressed
- a habit of demanding that their opinions be enshrined as social customs and law
- a tendency to possess a left-wing political identity
- a willingness to deny science, history, logic, their past words, or any other aspect of reality that contradicts their current Narrative.
The eight stages of the SJW attack sequence are as follows:
- Locate or Create a Violation of the Narrative.
- Point and Shriek.
- Isolate and Swarm.
- Reject and Transform.
- Press for Surrender.
- Appeal to Amenable Authority.
- Show Trial.
- Victory Parade
When SJWs push you for an apology after pointing-and-shrieking at you, what they are seeking is a confession to bolster their indictment
As Day sees it: "Normal people seek apologies because they want to know that you feel bad about what you have done and that you will at least attempt to avoid doing it again in the future. When SJWs push you for an apology after pointing-and-shrieking at you, what they are seeking is a confession to bolster their indictment. Be aware that once they have launched an attack on you, they will press you hard for an apology and repeatedly imply that if you will just apologize, all will be forgiven. Do not be fooled! I have seen people fall for it time and time again, and the result is always the same. The SJWs are simply looking for a public confession that will confirm their accusations, give them PR cover, and provide them with the ammunition required to discredit and disemploy you. Apologizing will accomplish nothing more than hand them the very weapons they require to destroy you."
SJWs are like Borgs. There is no alternative to their dogma. There are no Trumpian alternate facts to rescue us. Resistance is futile. And they will assimilate—but only if you let them. Fight them, ridicule them, expose them, beat them at their own game.
A crucial plank of SJWs' effectiveness is the willingness of the target to grovel to them for mercy, much in the same way that 'witches' in the Salem witch trials begged for mercy
Day says, correctly, that even as the institutions have been invaded and coopted in the interests of social justice, they have been rendered unable to fulfill their primary functions. So schools and universities cannot teach, banks cannot loan, state and local governments cannot provide reliable basic public services, the military cannot keep us safe or defend our borders, the newspapers no longer give us news, the TVs fail to entertain, and the corporations can no longer provide employment. Sooner or later the SJWs will be forced to realize that the goals they are shooting for, "Equality, Diversity, and Inclusiveness, are utterly incompatible with personal freedom, societal wealth, and advanced technological civilization."
This is an interesting concept, reminding one of Married With Children's theme song where love and marriage go together like a horse and carriage—except that in so many ways, this very relevant comedy is a depiction of marriage dystopia. People coping when all their dreams turn to crap before their eyes and now the gameplan is—in a word—COPE, or in three words—DEAL WITH IT. Similarly, Equality, Diversity, and Inclusiveness are utopian dreams and idealistic standards that create not perfection or even goodness, but simply a ripe opportunity for self-hating misfits to seize the day and become evil power brokers in a PC game of holier-than thou. These are the SJWs.
Equality of outcome is a foolish social goal, while Equality of opportunity is a good one. Diversity is a fine goal for general social reality but a bad thing to force with quotas and affirmative action. Inclusiveness is good when it's allowing everyone to paricipate in a classroom, but bad when one hires unqualified women or blacks in leadership roles regardless of negative effects on the organization just to appear inclusive. Good inclusiveness is when you make your home a comfortable place for all of your friends, family, and guests, but bad inclusiveness is when you make your home a comfortable place for any stranger who happens to wish to enter.
Some scholars reject the very idea of social justice as meaningless, religious, self-contradictory, and ideological, believing that to realize any degree of social justice is unfeasible, and that the attempt to do so must destroy all liberty. Spinoza thinks it is when you develop good character. In the current global grassroots movements for social justice, the emphasis has been on the breaking of barriers for social mobility, the creation of safety nets and economic justice. Political realists believe that any ideal of social justice is ultimately a mere justification for the status quo. (Source: Social justice, Wikipedia)
In the U.S., the ladder of class mobility has been rigged by the rich to prevent the nonrich from climbing it—we'd love to see the social justice wherein the ladder got repaired. See the best book of the 21st century: Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 Principles of Concentration of Wealth & Power.
SJWs have an ugly life approach wherein any time anyone says anything that you don't like, you ruin his life. No discussion. No contacting him and letting him know how you feel, respectfully and gently, which is the way with the highest likelihood of a good response. Or SJWs use the Fox News approach to discussions: interrupt them and scream at them. Or the spoiled liberal college student approach: interrupt them and scream at them, slam pies in their faces, and phsically assault them. Or the organized smear approach: hack everything connected with them online and then dox them, smear them with lies, get them fired. What in the world happened to civilized discussions—the hallmark of a vibrant democracy? SJWs apparently are not interested in democracy or civil society. They just want to destroy—manifesting deep psychological problems, possibly sociopathy.
"Day lays out the necessary steps for resisting SJWs. Social justice wackos are purely social, Pharisaical creatures: their modus operandi is using public shaming to deprive their enemies of social and financial support. However, a crucial plank of their effectiveness is the willingness of the target to grovel to them for mercy, much in the same way that “witches” in Salem or victims of Stalin’s purges would confess to the “crimes” that they were being falsely accused of. Take that away and the SJW’s house of cards comes tumbling down. . . . To put it simply, social justice warriors are a pestilence on society. They cannot be reasoned with, compromised with or otherwise agree to disagree. They are mentally ill, philosophically deranged and emotionally unstable. . . . As the most complete manual on how to deal with one of the biggest crises of our time, SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police (The Laws of Social Justice Book 1) deserves a place in your library. If you’re in the world of conventional employment, Vox Day’s pointers just might save your life. For everyone else, its strategies on resisting and turning back social justice cry-bullies are invaluable info for our struggle."

"The thought police are standing on a pile of bodies. They delight in ruining lives. No one is safe. . . . One wrong word and hordes of thugs will seek to get you fired. . . . As a civil rights lawyer I had actually been involved in lawsuits against the police. No one ever attacked me with such rabid dishonesty as the social justice warriors. SJWs lied about every area of my life. . . . Vox lays out a public relations self-defense strategy. . . . However, a large hate mob will begin contacting your employers and causing drama. Your employer may fire you just to stop the mob. It’s worth reminding your employer that firing you will not settle the mob, as their blood lust is infinite. Even if your employer is contacted, do not quit your job. The mob will eventually move on to another target. Quitting your job is the single biggest mistake victims of online shaming make. . . . SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police (The Laws of Social Justice Book 1) is a fascinating historical look at the tactics of online hate mobs." (Source: SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police (Review), Mike Cernovich)
If we allow the SJWs to get everyone fired who won't submit to their radical version of PC, all is lost and fascistic stormtroopers will be goosestepping their way to our door
