I had no idea about these streams. Sseth has such a relaxing way of entertaining without getting boring, kind of like having Attention-Deficit-Disorder while being on Methyp-something-something, he explains it himself better anyway.

Sseth is a Jew, watched by Jews, self-deprecating as a method of coping and appearing friendly. A way to cheapen what threatens by acting disconnected. 

I don't say Jew flippantly - I only heard about Sseth from a co-working Jew. Granted, a non-maternal Jew. Same Jew watches some tranny on YT, tranny used to fight with Ryan Faulk.

I'm not sure what to make of Sseth. In the beginning I explained all the sick elements away as a joke but he is escalating it. In the beginning it was subverting the J-status quo but by now he is making the joke into the point. You could also read this understanding in his comments sections but increasingly the memes surrounding him have become self-referential and meaningless outside the Sseth-verse.

Maybe that's an element of modernity itself as well. How it all is being assimilated and corrupted and turned against its original meaning.

He ends up glorifying the degenerate aspects subtly and mocking the less degenerate aspects. I couldn't watch the rest of a video after the reference to miscegenation. That wasn't an immediate disengagement, but was after increasingly grotesque and not self-deprecating references. Slight intonations make a difference.

If he ever received such criticism, you know exactly the response: "I was never based, guy"

I wouldn't mind such a response. All I wanted was to lay it bare on the table for people to see and judge for themselves.

I thought the joke was that he is allowed to do that kind of videos without being demonetized because he portrays himself as a black person. I never thought his origin story to be funny, but something he had to do to get a free pass. When he was commissioning hentai I thought it was a reference (inside joke) to all these people who watch anime because it doesn't have black characters in it ("so based lol"), I didn't think these people actually look forward for these drawings or actually want games to be dating simulators.

He has such a large audience right now so most of them must be people with anime avatars. It remains to be seen when or if he is "found out".

What I have noticed is that at times he makes "jokes" where I get the feeling that it might not be a joke and that I am only choosing to interpret them in his favour. From my experience that's a bit of a red flag whenever this occurs to me, also with other people and personalities not just Sseth. Usually it turns out that I was too forgiving in my interpretation and that I was wrong to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Is Slaughtz co-worker the dummy here or am I. I mean, I think Sseth is a degenerate to quite some extent, the question for me is - Is he our degenerate content creator?

I highly recommend the free RTS 0 A.D. It's another AoE clone, but clearly made with love and attention to detail. It's in "alpha" perpetually due to being made by an independent team, but it's very well put together and I don't notice any significant bugs while playing.

Here's a link to the website.

The civilizations sound interesting in 0 AD, The new civilizations in AOE 2 felt pretty stupid, I can't take seriously "Italians", "Slavs" or "Vietnamese", "Koreans" in the original were ridiculous. It sounds good on paper.

Though I mostly see very passive gameplay videos of 0 AD, sitting behind walls. Age of empires 4 is coming soon so it could become obsolete.

Honestly I just really like the aesthetic of 0 A.D. more than anything. I love that one can play multiple Hellenic or otherwise tribal factions and create some really beautiful settlements. I also like how the "house" building has fertility elements that reflect in the game. Generally the "house" in an RTS is simply +population. The game provides some nice flavor to back up the mechanic.

Regarding Sseth, repeating things ironically is how you desensitize people, gradually reducing their opposition to them. In general repetition = normalization, and it's done ironically to bypass people's conscious defense of "this is wrong" by claiming it's non-serious.

It's the strategy the alt-right used with NS memes, and why one should be suspicious of ironic degeneracy - it is only acceptable sparingly, if at all.

That's a good explanation.
I skipped through one of Sseth's live streams and there he uses homosexual pornography (among other things) more excessively than in his usual meme/game-review videos. If you come to this with a fresh view and have not been boiled slowly like a frog in a pot by his step by step escalation of degeneracy, then there will be no doubt what he is promoting in those videos.
His audience seems to contain quite a lot of J-woke memes. Will be interesting how this will play out. Can he get them into gay porn or will they reject him before that happens.

Normalization has another side-effect: reducing novelty/shock value. Hence the usage of 'J-woke' .. Things. It disempowers the shock value, disempowering the novelty and acts as an 'immunization', or in this case, association with degeneracy.

It turns away 'Normals', 'vagues' from anything J-woke. It is basically promoting cuckservative anti-nationalism. It is particularly effective since naive watchers of it would share with 'vagues' to "red pill" them.

None of this is 'conspiracy', no more than convenient idiots are treated as convenient. The only 'conspiracy' is the noted lack of banning, etc. Not the concoction of it, but allowance.

I'm not sure it turns away Normies.
I'm not sure they could tell what is meant as ironic and what isn't.
From their perspective Sseth might just be an open J. with his merchant guild promoting gay porn.
What's wrong with gay porn, right?
Sseth could also lose all of his alt-right elements in his base and be easily meme-ed into being a J. promoting gay porn. Once the question is openly asked by increasing numbers of people, "Hey, hey J., are ya gay?", any answer will be revealing.

Maybe Sseth gets Normie media famous and will then reveal how he was a gay porn addicted Nazi who is redeeming himself as an openly gay mixed race, half J. .
Will see.

I mostly gave him excuses thinking when you have to do comedy videos every month it can be hard to come up with funny jokes all the time, so you have to put in jokes that are less funny as a filler (or go for the grotesque shock humour). He constantly makes jokes of organ harvesting and J-type exploitation, I didn't even think those were meant to be funny.

I was just thinking he was going for Sam hyde type of awareness humour at times, first lowering down the defenses of the listener and then going in detail about grotesque details and let the listener decide for himself what they think about it.


Or when Metokur made videos about sex change operation, furries and about other disturbed individuals describing what is all about, which I found very disgusting and I don't think anyone could get desensitized by that no matter how many times they hear it. Most people don't even want to hear the truth about the things they support.

At first Sseth's videos were interpreted by most of his audience as ironic and promoting awareness of the merchant.
It's a gradual change. Sseth has over a million views on many of his videos, is it plausible that an alt-right guy is allowed to have such an influence on Youtube?

Sure, there is the argument that maybe he is just being ironic about the degeneracy so that he can continue his operation on Youtube. But even if that were true, if you have to bend and twist so much that you promote gay porn quite regularly and commission interracial "blacked.com" Hentai then what good are your efforts. Might as well stop making your videos unless pozzing Youtube for views and shekels has always been the goal.

It's just constant perversion jokes it seems...His fanbase seems to be part of the problem, either he is in his own element being praised by the anime avatars or he doesn't mind as long as he gets +5000 € euros a month. He had unique style humour in his videos in the beginning, but he is not inherently quick-witted funny person. (like for example spoony was)

That would explain it, plus maybe they were paying him by the number of words spoken.

Maybe being a slavic barbarian I'm biased, but also his accent and intonation are way too modern and posh, I can't imagine anybody in such a natural setting speaking like that. A downside of hiring "professional", urbanite voice actors, I guess. It all sounds fake and gay

English voice acting doesn't always fit the atmosphere. When I played Witcher 1 for the first time I had to put on the Russian dub because the landscape and houses looked like something from eastern Europe while the Geralt sounded like solid snake from MGS 1.
