Trolls are people without pretense who enjoy poking holes in the people who are trapped in pretense. Ideotrolls do this to advance an agenda, namely "reality," in a modern society where it has gotten too easy to go into denial. Ideological trolling pokes holes in that facade and it is to that end infoterror.com is dedicated.
Reality as modern people see it is defined by social pretense. We assume certain things are fact and attack anyone who dares state that the emperor has no clothes. This is why trolls are anonymous. We know that the largest segment of society wants us to die for simply having realized these basic truths of reality. Most people prefer to be in denial.
This denial is protected by social pretense, like "morality" or "progress" or "status." Any time some upstanding member of the community is shocked their daughter is caught smoking crack, or is horrified by some realization from science or philosophy, social pretense is punctured. Social pretense is what protects the individual from critique.
In crowds, we love it because it makes our deficiencies sacred cows that cannot be slaughtered. If any troll rises up and points out the principle that makes us see our deficiencies, we want that person dead. Trolls however serve a useful purpose in that they re-introduce us to reality, and when we see reality, we have a chance of acting on it and producing a non-failing society. Our current society is failing, but it violates social pretense to say that. We keep polluting, going to tedious jobs where we accomplish nothing of value, chasing material solutions to our inner emptiness and living in the ugly commercial-symbol-ridden cities we have made. We are all miserable and none of us trusts society. At best, we get some kicks from feeling superior to others.
Civilizations like this die out because no one is committed to reality any longer. We live in this world of politeness where no one defecates or dies, and where everyone is "equal," and only bad people disagree. As humanity breeds out of control, uses up resources, and kills off anyone intelligent enough to see that we're living in our own techno-feces in ugly cities with ugly passive aggressive people, we come closer to again facing reality.
However, our society is designed around avoiding reality. We think it's more important if most people think they want something, than if it's actually what they need. This is expressed in our sacred cows of democracy, capitalism and equality. We like to think we endorse religious freedom, but really we only accept religions that please the crowd by telling them that if they sign here, they'll become immortal.
It's very immature. In fact, it's pathetic. Anyone with an IQ over 120 can look out at this society and see that it is essentially talking monkeys with car keys out of control, enforcing a fantasy world because they can't handle reality. Your society sucks. It produces nothing great, and in the name of making us all equal, it makes us equally miserable. Except for trolls.
Trolls are underworld insurgents. Because you the crowd have suppressed reality, you have created a false reality that floats on top of the physical reality in which sane people live. Yes, I called you all insane. Trolls connect the worlds by pointing out the contradictions in your "progressive" illusion. You claim that you know better, and are morally ahead, and trolls will force you to confront your real motivations: gaining status by putting other people down, stealing all the money you can, and hiding your perverse deficiencies with layers of pretense.
In the underworld, such motivations are recognized as real, because all we have in the underworld is reality itself. We don't trust the rest of you. We do trust our sense of realism, and we like it, because that way we do not become useless, neurotic, self-obsessed first world people with nothing of significance to do in their lives. Having reality to struggle for gives us meaning, even if we don't have BMWs.
We know you hate us because we are free of the neurosis. It is a devil's bargain to suspend reality for the comfortable world of your own mind and the products you buy. This materialist outlook saves you from criticism, but because you get no feedback from life, you drift farther and farther away from the meaning that comes from struggling to achieve something in life. You become useless, and hate yourself, and you hate us for telling you that.
