Life Under the Victimocracy

In America there are two types of people; the oppressed and the oppressors.

 The oppressed oppress the oppressors. And everyone including the oppressors agrees that this is only fair because the oppressors deserve to be oppressed. After all they are the oppressors.

They deserve to have the money they earn taken away. They deserve to be sent to the back of the line when applying to a college or looking for a job. They deserve to be beaten, robbed, raped, and taunted with slurs that would lead to national outrage if it were directed at the oppressed.

But they’re the oppressors. They deserve it.

If they complain, they deserve to have their speech censored. They are the oppressors. There’s no telling how much oppression they might dish out if the oppressed don’t keep them down.

That’s just life in the Victimocracy.

With one sob story too many, one whine too great, one more PBS special, special report about the plight of the oppressed and episode of Donahue, the country changed. The oppressors still had the democratic refuge of elections where they could by sheer numbers vote to retain their civil rights, but most of the other mechanisms of governance had ceased to be democratic and instead became victimocratic.

To have real power you had to be a victim or one of their protectors.

The Victimocracy is a lot like any other tyranny. In an aristocracy, power belongs to the nobles, in a theocracy, power belongs to the clergy, in a meritocracy, to anyone with skill and a work ethic.

But in a Victimocracy the biggest and angriest whiner wins.

In a Victimocracy, suffering is the exclusive privilege of the elites. No one else is allowed to suffer except them. No one else has ever been oppressed, has felt pain, been insulted, abused, degraded, enslaved and ground down into the dirt except the very people who are grinding you into the dirt now.

Victimhood is what entitles them to special privileges, it’s what ennobles them as a superior class of people and gives them the right to rule over you. They are the victims. What they say goes.

Victimization is the currency of their power. They have 1/16 Cherokee blood and high cheekbones. They are ‘triggered’ by loud noises and differing opinions. They spent their twenties “coming to terms” with something because of the lack of sitcom role models for their favorite sexual preferences or skin color. They are all survivors of something or other. They were activists and someone once said mean things to them. And if all else fails, they are deeply passionate about the plight of the oppressed. Like, seriously.

Now stop oppressing them and educate yourself by recognizing their right to oppress you.

The Victimocracy is based around the superior moral power of their suffering. That is why no one else is allowed to suffer except them. Their convoluted theories of social justice eliminate the very possibility that the source of their exclusive moral power can be experienced by anyone else. They have strived to warp language around their political narcissism to define suffering as an experience unique to them.

They will assert, for example, that anti-white racism cannot exist because racism is not interpersonal but a structural product of power relations. Since everyone knows that America is a white male patriarchy, white people cannot be oppressed. They can only be the oppressors. Because of the patriarchy, men cannot be sexually assaulted. Christians cannot be religiously discriminated against. Americans can’t be blown up by Muslims. Any claim otherwise is a lie intended to oppress our oppressed oppressors.

Victimocrats are narcissistically infuriated by the suffering of others. Many tyrannies applied the whip and the lash, the prison cell and the gulag, but they at least left those they abused in possession of their suffering. The Victimocracy denies its victims even their suffering. Victimocrats reject the humanity of their victims as thinking and feeling beings with the same needs and boundaries as themselves.

The Victimocracy rations empathy. Empathy is the election of its system. The biggest victim wins and his suffering licenses his abuses. The bigger the victim, the bigger the abuses he is entitled to commit. If the empathy flows the wrong way, then power shifts and the entire system collapses. To take over a society, the Victimocrats must control its education and entertainment to structure its empathy flow their way.

Victimocrats must appear weak to gain power. They must always seem beleaguered, under siege, abused and threatened from a thousand different directions. They must be made to seem underdogs. Even if a Victimocrat sits in the White House, unilaterally dispensing with the lives and fortunes of a nation with phone and pen, he must remain a vulnerable victim of a terrible history of racism.

The Victimocrat must always be seen as a weak victim in need of rescue from those he oppresses.

Never able to argue a thing on its merits, the Victimocrats shift the debate to the moral high ground of their own oppression. It is impossible to disagree with them without somehow invoking stereotypes, flashbacks and the return of the white male patriarchy riding back into town on the last thing you said.

The Victimocrats are always in need of rescuing. No matter how much power they have, someone is always abusing them. And once that happens people of good will are called upon to condemn the abuse and to reinforce their power structure of the oppressed oppressor and the oppressive oppressed.

Victimocrats don’t win arguments. They convince others that they are entitled to avoid the argument. In the Victimocracy the illusion of weakness is power. The weak are entitled to disproportionate power to protect themselves from the rest of us. The weaker they are, the more power they need. And the more power they get, the weaker they grow until we live under a tyranny of the absolutely powerless who wield absolute power.

Sometimes the oppressors wonder where their incredible power is supposed to be. They don’t have all that much money and no one seems to have taught them the secret handshake that will unlock the heavy iron doors of the heteronormative patriarchy where the patriarchal plutocrats sit around the table drinking the tears of Obama, Oprah and various Hollywood celebrities from human skulls.

Their oppressors tell them about their privilege, an invisible power to oppress others that they never even knew they had, but the privilege never really explains why they have to work harder, die sooner and be berated constantly for even existing. And they die and their oppressors take what they have.

There is no end to the oppression because the Victimocracy has to grow. America is always more bigoted than it was last year because the Victimocrats need more power this year. The more oppressed Americans become, the more they must be denounced for victimizing all the nice people running their lives and robbing them blind.

The Victimocracy rules by manufacturing an urgent crisis of oppression. It demands special measures to deal with the crisis. The temporary measures become permanent. Rolling them back would be an act of oppression. The permanent measures turn out to be insufficient. They must be redoubled.

Each Victimocrat victory is “a significant step forward” but there is always “more work to be done.” And like all lust for power, the work never ends.

The oppressed want more. The oppressors make do with less. The protectors of the oppressed, who actually run the Victimocracy, announce that more speech must be censored, more wealth redistributed and more must be made unequal to achieve equality. A better world is around the corner, but first the one we have must be destroyed.

Only when the balance shifts permanently and the new world is born, will the oppressors be allowed to see for the first time that they had been the oppressed all along.

And then it will be too late.

Americans have been fooled into thinking that grievance politics is something that is the invention of minorities against "whites". Instead it is a Euro-socialist system grafted onto American politics. Which is why the American Left excels at it.

Marx understood victimocracy better than anyone. He actually created a class of victims (the German worker) who because they lived in an advanced society (showing their superiority) had the right to create a totalitarian state and force the rest of the world to live to their dictates (because the German workers were victims). A perfect mix of racial narcissism coupled with racial and economic grievances. The Nazis used that playbook brilliantly. Hitler picked up where Marx left off.

Every socialist nation in Europe has simultaneously found that their minorities get more nationalistic. Why wouldn't they?. Its either tax or be taxed.

Lots of people have real grievances, but the government seems to have a way of sorting out the least worthy. Little by little we are drifting away from Victimology and toward mugger money with a little whining thrown in to make the intimidation more agreeable.

Brilliantly written! As a 60 year old woman, I've been trying to define what's wrong with girls/young women these days.

If one is busy being a victim, they apparently have no time for education or technical training, but want the same salary and lifestyle of those who made an effort to improve themselves. Our current gov't considers this fair.

Sultan, this would be funny if it was not so true. By the way, do you have a degree in Orwellian Doublespeak? :-)

The stuff coming out of DC, not so Sharp-ton, and Highjack-son could pass as a 3 stooges script. Unfortunately, that script ends up accepted by the mainstream press, so-called educators, and too many judges that make this drivel have the effect of law. The net result is that in order to make us all more equal, I lose a chunk of my pay check and a serious slice out of my liberty.

"The danger is not that a particular class is unfit to govern: every class is unfit to govern."
-- Lord Acton

"There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty. In politics the middle way is none at all."
-- John Adams

"Because the regime is captive to its own lies, it must falsify everything. It falsifies the past. It falsifies the present, and it falsifies the future. It falsifies statistics ... It pretends to fear nothing. It pretends to pretend nothing."
-- Vaclav Havel

“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
-- Booker T. Washington

Tails how host Larry Elder coined the term Victicrat. Rolls off of the tongue a bit better.

Any ideas on the next victim class as people tire of the current ones? I'd suggest victims of man-made global warming as a good contender and can see how profitable it would be for the professional and up-and-coming Victicrat (thank you Juliette and Larry Elder for that term.)

An Escheresque improbably complex concept beautifully word painted!

A variation of this is the ever expanding "survivor advocate" class, who seek to enrich themselves by having once "survived" a self-defined hazard or hardship. One example I know personally is a woman who had a very small cancer tumor removed in a lumpectomy. She has reinvented herself from a failure into a "Breast Cancer Survivor" who now spends all her time rasing funds which murkily go somewhere to "raise awareness".

Mr. Sharpton's surviving the racism of the 1960's would be another example, or the gay rights activist who survived the childood trauma of being called a sissy on a playground.

The blame game experts say it may all depend on what the grand jury says or does not say.

Brilliant. In other words, "victimhood" is what economists call a "positional good", meaning, in plain English, a good that is desirable not in its own right but to show that you have it and others don't.
The quest for positional goods is always a zero sum game.

Victims, or group of victims, are useful idiots played by the masters to sow envy, quarrel and class war amongst us. These victims are promised risible being the last ones to be fed to Moloch.

While we're fighting and losing our humanity for unfair privileges, all of us (and even the "lucky oppressed") are doomed losers, in the long-term arising of the No-pity Oppressive New World of Inhumanity.
