Deplorable Until Proven Compliant: Kafka, Social Credit, & Critical Theory


by Joaquin Flores, Strategic Culture:

The coming phase will involve the division of the awakened through the manipulation of trauma-bonding, empathy attachment, and altruism, Joaquin Flores writes.

The new social credit system uses weaponised sociology and mass psychology such that the plutocratic ruling class can transform, with little disruption normally associated with the rotation of elites, into a post-financial technocracy. Therefore, the old social credit system of consumer credit, and likewise systems of law, become moribund. They are replaced by revolutionary methods of social control which a.) uses a sinister trauma-bonded ‘empathic-intuition’ method, at the individual level, b.) alongside pre-crime and permanent guilt as a systemic foundation, c.) and the loss of the 6th Amendment’s guarantee to know the crimes (and evidence) one is accused of.


While the concerned public is familiar with the material technologies in plans of technocrats through various leaked documents, the exposure of summits and societies dedicated to this nefarious cause, the dark anti-human agenda that guides these goes even beyond the understanding of the well-informed.

At face value, social credit is marked by the imposition of a deviant libertine values system of the ruling class, upon the whole society. Secondly, as it is well-known, it micromanages individual’s goods and energy consumption.

In this chapter, we will examine the apocalyptic manipulation of the sociological and social-psychological technologies from several French poststructuralist schools including Foucauldian theories on pain and control, Baudrillardian conceptions of simulacrum and hyper-reality, Kafka’s works of ‘fiction’, taken together with Critical Theory (Frankfurt School) analysis in the vain of neo-Marxian historical materialism, and neo-Freudian psychoanalysis, informed also by Jean-Martin Charcot’s theory of trauma.

Our conception of a panopticon prison does not lay the foundation for the medical-technocratic quarantine as house arrest: Rather, as Foucault discovered, the 17th century practice of quarantining during a pandemic lays at the foundation of the modern panopticon prison grid for all of society – a tyrant’s fantasy realized.

The social philosophers (Michel Foucault, Jean Baudrillard, Jurgen Habermas, etc.) likely believed they were developing ideas to help mankind, much like Marx and the original Marxists themselves.

Paradoxically they only better described the elite-ruled world in a more scientific fashion than the elites themselves had previously understood it, making the elite’s managerial class all the better armed. Because these ideas were limited to the university curriculum, where future managers and technocrats are educated, this outcome was already predicted.

The themes of the elite’s dystopic proposal for the coming epoch are: inauthentic virtue, compliance with hidden rules, permanent guilt, internalized control, trauma-bonded ‘empathy’, population reduction, and austerity.

The coming phase will involve the division of the awakened through the manipulation of trauma-bonding, empathy attachment, and altruism, as inferred through the work of Jeremy Rifkin, author of the ‘Empathic Civilization‘ and the ‘Third Industrial Revolution’. And contrary to what were perhaps Rifkin’s own well-intended hopes for humanity, the neutral, technical, scientific component of his work greatly informs the managers of the resetist technocracy.

It is here that the elites will attempt to confront the Great Awakening through dark-side psycho-spiritual warfare parading as awakened. It will manipulate paranoia on ‘Narcissism‘ and accuse all those who resist the technocracy, as narcissists

Social credit is based on an inversion of concepts of good, of innocent, and of guilty. In the new social credit system, one is assumed guilty until they can prove they are going in the direction of ‘good’, and no one is innocent and no one really achieves full approval (i.e. goodness). This mirrors the Covid-19 pandemic that introduced the new normal of being assumed sick unless one can prove ‘health’ (though still contagious, i.e., never really ‘good’) through forced ‘inoculation’.

It is also a theme in ‘white guilt’ where every ‘white’ individual, regardless of facts, is personally responsible for institutional slavery (a contradiction in terms), publicly humiliated, until they perform certain ritualized tasks (“to actively use their privilege to dismantle white privilege and white supremacy”), and utter particular shibboleths, as proscribed by a technocratic managerial priesthood of the church of shame and new beginnings. This ‘Critical Race Theory’ (CRT) is a subdivision of Critical Theory itself.

The 4th Industrial Revolution Requires Social Credit

The 4th Industrial Revolution requires the new social credit as it no longer uses money in a recognizable way. Fines and imprisonment were historically used to dissuade barred activities, both of which represent a loss of time and social standing. Losing social credit points and requirements to perform tasks or maintain improved behaviour over time, to earn points back, also reflects a loss of time, labour, and social standing.

During the 2nd and 3rd Industrial Revolutions, consumer credit as a FICO score, the Curriculum Vitae, personal income level, renown, and the criminal record combined to form the social credit system of those eras.

Imprisonment is no longer necessary with a surveillance grid, or rather, everyone is imprisoned. CVs and consumer credit become irrelevant as work is replaced by automation.

Still, we should expect ‘prisons’ in the sense of internment camps, which have already been constructed, as the dichotomy of imprisoned vs. non-imprisoned reinforces the simulacrum of relative freedom/privilege for the non-interned.

Imprisonment and punishment go even further with the new social credit, and in the absence of financial losses, involve a deeper public shaming, taking cues from Foucault’s analysis of the origins of prison and the internalization of pain and guilt.
