Interview With Brett Stevens on The Uprising Review

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

Many of you know Everitt Foster as one of the voices on our podcast. He also co-helms a site dedicated to up-and-coming writers known as The Uprising Review. I was fortunate to be interviewed on their most recent podcast on the topic of editing and how it can influence the work of a starting writer. It is a lengthy but informative interview by a project that is worth exploring as cultural changes make writing, fiction and literature more important, not less.

Democracy continues to fail: “Reality Winner” was a loser, Theresa May cucked and bucked her mandate in the UK, the American mainstream Right spends all its days trying to catch up to Trump, and in the meantime, the parasites fight back as the Establishment, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, certain liberal churches. They share a common goal: keeping alive the blank cheque to parasitize the wealth of the dying West that these groups, both rich and poor, have relied on for the past 228 years at least. The only solution is going to be a massive purge, and it is taking all of us time to accept that, and to try to figure out how to minimize the horrors.

Updates

Before anything else, I want to say thank you to all of those who read, comment on, and share the works found on this blog. You are the core of this community.

There have been some changes. Now, like many of the conservative bent, I dislike change, but that is not quite accurate. Most change, like most authority, is inept and self-serving, so it is natural to oppose those. It took some time to accept the need for these changes but most are intended to provide a more convenient reading and commenting experience for you.

You will notice there are little social media buttons beneath each post. These make it really easy for you to spread the mental virus of Amerika to counter the abundance of distractions, trivialities and lies out there. The hope is that, since the post-2007 internet consists mostly of social media users, more people can be reached with these shares.

In addition, the comments look different. After years of manually approving comments, Amerika has outsourced its commenting system to Disqus. This requires you to have some login credentials but allow you to manage your comments in the social media style on the Disqus site and any other site that uses their commenting system.

Finally, a personal note. I have begun offering my services as a freelance writer, editor and eBook conversion expert after several requests for the same. In addition, I am fortunate to be published on the esteemed traditionalRIGHT blog with a new piece entitled “Leftism On The Skids” and I hope you enjoy it.

There may be a few glitches as all the new additions to the site get adjusted on the detail level. Should you have any feedback on the above, try our new comments section.

The death of the West happened before we were born. We fight now for its restoration. This requires ridding ourselves of the illusion of equality, but that is the most popular human notion because it allows each individual to think himself a king, god or tyrant. Think of this as playing the most epic RTS game ever on the hardest setting. We will win because we cannot do otherwise. We are the conquerors, most of all conquerors of ourselves.

Operation Mockingbird Reviews Nihilism

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

The cerebral dissident podcast Operation Mockingbird has featured Nihilism: A Philosophy Based In Nothingness And Eternity on the most recent show, following a great interview on the show. Host Joe Arrigo shows an uncommonly penetrating insight regarding the book, digs deep into its concepts, and brings out related ideas through a very balanced and philosophical review. Thank you, Joe, for reading so intently and appreciating what is being communicated by this fairly difficult subject matter.

The West continues its death cycle. On this Memorial Day, we celebrate the people who went out and died for democracy, with no one having learned the knowledge from centuries ago that democracy is the killer of societies. People want to believe what they want to believe, and there is no stopping them once they get going, because they will never admit they are wrong. We can never forget our glorious Simian heritage. Individualism is always more popular than principled, purposeful existence, because the latter is hard and the former is so easy that any idiot can do it. A democratic era is the age of Any Idiot, and he seems to control everything important and be wrecking it at the same time.

Only ruins remain of the formerly vital West. Donald Trump continues his rampage through the American political establishment by slowly dismantling its cozy internal relationships; in the UK, Brexit remains a reality in theory. Le Pen was not elected in France, which has sparked a massive wave of internal discontent not just with the election but with liberal democracy itself. Evidence continues to pile up that diversity has failed, equality is a fantasy, and that the West has been failing for centuries or millennia but has finally hit the do-or-die point of no return. Do we rebirth ourselves, or continue the slow degradation into thirdworld status? Just don’t endanger my retirement plan, buddy.

The Roper Report Links Balkanization And Nihilism

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Billy Roper (interview) stands out among nationalists because he has been active in promoting sensible ideas for a long time, and during that time, has developed and refined his philosophy to combine history and politics into a vision of the inevitable future and how we can redirect the failing of Western civilization into its rebirth.

In other words, he accepts all of the dark and bad, and instead of becoming depressive and self-destructive, points to the opportunity that this gives us: when a rotted order falls, we can create in its place a healthier Western Civilization than can exist at all under the current form of society that we have chosen over the years of decay.

On the most recent edition of The Roper Report, Mr. Roper talks about “the black pill,” or nihilism, and how it is useful for us to accept the enormity of our situation and the corresponding intensity of what we are called on to do. This is “do or die” territory, and most people are looking for a reason to choose a “good enough” placebo solution instead of the good solution that is actually required.

From there, Mr. Roper and his guest Cantankerous Ordo — a well-spoken fellow with depth of insight — investigate the Alt Right and how it navigates between virtue signaling and purity spiraling in an attempt to enforce internal integrity and prevent “frenemy entryism,” which is what I call the situation when people who want to take part end up accidentally bringing their Leftist ideas or broken behaviors into the wider cultural wave, corrupting it and eventually inverting it.

The whole thing is worth listening to, complete with a mixture of music and commentary. It includes a discussion of how the fragmentation of the West guarantees that Balkanization, or the break-up of nation states into individual ethnic and cultural groups, will end the travesty that is the fallen West.

For those who enjoy what they hear, the book by Mr. Roper entitled The Big Picture provides more essential thinking material. Thank you to Messrs. Roper and Ordo for discussing the Black Pill and presenting such an interesting podcast!

Brett Stevens On Operation Mockingbird Podcast

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017

I was fortunate to be featured on YouTube podcast Operation Mockingbird this evening, answering the thoughtful questions of host Joe Arrigo about Neoreaction, Traditionalism and the Dark Enlightenment, as well as a small amount on my book Nihilism.

You can find more on the Operation Mockingbird YouTube Channel or view the interview below. Thanks to Joe for a stimulating and comprehensive interview.

“Modernity Is Not An Option”

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017

On Red Ice TV, philosopher Nick Land expands Neoreaction into an Alt Right critique of modernity, making for a highly interesting interview.

Land has packed every essential concept in the cluster of dissident anti-modern thought — postmodernism, aristocracy, post-democracy, religion, identitarianism and extreme libertarian anarcho-capitalist viewpoints — into a series of statements which explore the depths of each of these through their interconnections.

While this requires more time and patience than many interviews, being more of a graduate-level seminar than a pop media product, his breadth of understanding and analysis of the intersection of these different ideas makes Mr. Land’s interview an informative listen. Great to see the Red Ice crew bringing this influential thinker on-air!
