SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police
Vox Day, with foreword by Milo Yiannopoulos
Castalia House, 2015
Review by Robert Wenzel
CASE 1 One day you are peacefully sitting in your cubicle at work minding your own business when you receive an email from your manager to stop by his office.
When you do, you learn from your boss that a complaint has been filed against you for some type of politically incorrect activity.
CASE 2 You are a blogger who wakes up one day to learn you are being attacked in a story by SJWs. The story is full of malicious lies.
Sadly, in this day and age when social justice warriors roam, this happens often.
SJWs have even taken down top CEOs and Nobel prize winners with their tactics.
Fortunately, there is now a book out that teaches you how to deal with such attacks, SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police by Vox Day.
The book is brilliant. Day understands the tactics used by SJWs and he understands the psyche of SJWs.
What's more, he has done heavy battle with SJWs in the science fiction arena and as an original player in #gamergate.
Day is an Alt Right leader and I don't agree with all his views and I don't agree with all the tactics he suggests in his book. I consider the battle against central planners, and other authoritarians, to ultimately be a long game, intellectual battle, where SJWs are mere grains of dirt in the eye.
My guess is that Day sees short-term skirmishes with SJWs as important in the long battle. I don't. However, I do see Day's tactics as extremely important survival techniques, so that SJW attacks don't knock you of the box when developing your long game.
And, heaven help you, if you are in the corporate world minding your own business when SJWs launch and attack on you/
Thus, I consider this book must reading for anyone in the corporate world so that corporate-types know in advance how to react and what to do if they are the target of an SJW attack.
It is also necessary reading for anyone in the intellectual battle, academics, bloggers, etc. SJWs don't play fair and they could do serious harm to your career if you respond incorrectly.
Finally. it is a valuable book for anyone who finds himself in debate with SJWs. Day brilliantly explains why logical debate doesn't work with SJWs and he shows how to win in debate against them.
On top of the valuable survival tactics explained in this book and debating techniques discussed, Day happens to be a great writer. This is a rip-roaring book, with great tales. It is a page turner that will have you laughing loud as he recounts his battles with SJWs. and it will leave you extremely impressed with the deep and detailed observations he makes about SJWs.
Whether you buy this book as a survival manual, for the beach as a fun read or for a long plane ride, you won't be disappointed.
I am comfortable stating that this book for the anti-statist is a much more important book than Saul Alinksy's Rules for Radicals is for socialists and other central planners---and it is more fun to read.
