“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!

The Roper Report Relocates

Sunday, May 7th, 2017

Leftists attack first by using any complaint process they can find. This fits their identity as angry consumers who are offended by anything that disturbs the narrative that says that our society is following the best path possible.

Recently, a mob of angry Leftists attacked The Roper Report by complaining that articles on the site were leaking personal data, when in fact those articles relied on public sources to unmask various Communists, Antifa, anarchists and other disagreeables.

As Billy Roper reported recently, The Roper Report has relocated to a safer, more advanced platform:

Yesterday, antifa reported the former primary The Roper Report (TRR) website, resulting in its suspension temporarily until their sysadmin determined that I had not published any information which isn’t publicly available online. Because of that vulnerability, I have created a new, more secure, faster and flashier The Roper Report (TRR) website with all the bells and whistles that the cool kids love.

You can find the new site at http://theroperreport.whitenationalists.net/.

Association For The Protection Of The Lebanese Heritage Releases Of Men And Ruins Issue Three

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

A longstanding traditionalist organization that analyzes social health through art, literature and architecture, the Association For The Protection Of The Lebanese Heritage has released issue three of its digital magazine, Of Men And Ruins. This issue compiles writings from 2014-2016 in a lengthy tome that has been issued free online.

You can find the free download at the APLH site. It includes an article of mine, “Nationalism And Nihilism.”

Numen Books And Manticore Press Re-Form As Hadean

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Numen Books, the publisher of my first book Nihilism: A Philosophy Based In Nothingness And Eternity, has merged with associated publisher Manticore Press into a new entity, Hadean, which has expanded its business model.

From the publisher:

The existing businesses have been merged into a corporation to reflect the new business interests of jewellery imports and real estate in addition to the existing publishing enterprise. To put it more simply – the business has expanded into new territory that was not present in the existing business, and will be much bigger and more powerful than before.

With luck, they will migrate over articles like “Nihilism: An Introduction” for the reading pleasure of future generations of traditionalists, philosophers, occultists and metaphysicians.

Interview With Brett Stevens

Monday, April 17th, 2017

I am fortunate to be interviewed at Speakeasy(X) regarding politics, philosophy, religion and music. You can read the complete interview here. It outlines much of the basic philosophical approach that I take toward Alt Right issues and the question of human civilization in general.

If you would like some framing going into it, it makes sense to remember what Seneca told Lucilius:

To consort with the crowd is harmful; there is no person who does not make some vice attractive to us, or stamp it upon us, or taint us unconsciously therewith. Certainly, the greater the mob with which we mingle, the greater the danger…I mean that I come home more greedy, more ambitious, more voluptuous, and even more cruel and inhuman, because I have been among human beings.

Much of what is revealed herein follows the patterns: humans are solipsistic, and form groups to scapegoat anything but that, so that they do not have to adapt in a Darwinian or a moral sense. Instead, people want to exist in pure isolation, but in doing so, deprive themselves of meaning and become miserable and self-pitying, which manifests in an impulse to destroy.

We live in a time that is not post-truth but anti-truth. The growth of alternative media and global communication presents a challenge to the hegemony of the Cathedral over our view of the world, and this is best reflected in the fumbling manner in which the Cathedral attempts to plug the holes in its leaking ship. Of course, half of the plugs spring a new leak ten minutes later, and two new holes appear for each one plugged. We live in a time of deception. But the energy that sustains that deception is petering out, bit by bit.

Red Ice on altright.com: The Stockholm Terrorist Attack is Only the Beginning: Here we see the strange doublespeak of the Cathedral. People are unlikely to believe outright falsehoods, so a number of deceptions are used. Obedient and devout Cathedralites will tell you that there are no attacks in Sweden; if you bring up a specific attack, they will claim that it has nothing to do with immigration or just doesn’t matter. The key is not to deny the existence of such attacks or say that they did not happen, but to keep from discussing or thinking about them at all.

Hunter Wallace on altright.com: “The Alt-Right doesn’t believe in the concept of the ‘Free World.’”: we see here a confusion on the part of the alt-right. Trump was never the alt-right candidate, as the author of this article seems to think, and claiming that Trump was the alt-right candidate is, paradoxically a result of swallowing leftist propaganda about Trump! Notice how even this piece of Cathedral agitprop results in confusion on the alt-right when it gets past our radar. We wanted to believe that Trump was our man, so we believed that he was alt-right when the mainstream media told us so. Swallowing that belief has the consequence of creating division on the alt-right. What we need is to see Trump as a first step. And we can’t deny the realities of geopolitics, and the necessity of empire at the present time.

VDARE: Is “Trump Effect” Reversing American Worker Displacement, Illegal Influx?: we’re used to the mainstream media distorting and cherry-picking their statistics. But this points to a larger trend, which is this: the media attacks us through “sins of omission,” by not doing what they ought to do, even more than by doing outright evil.

The Atlantic: The Rise of the Christian Left in America: one thing that evil does when it senses that it is being found out is to put on some incidental, skin-deep trappings of good. The Left will co-opt traditional things like religion in order to provide some semblance of order and meaning, as a desperate bid to maintain its power over those who are beginning to see through it. Again, this is a sin of omission, with religion being a simple lifestyle choice like driving a Mini Cooper, and with everything significant about religion being removed.

”Britain Strips Jihadist of Passport Despite Supplying Weapons to His Islamist Group in Syria: much as it creates a hollow facsimile of religion in order to legitimize itself, the Cathedral also makes symbolic gestures to cover its vulgar realpolitik. Another instance of the same phenomenon, we see the magician making grand gestures with one hand while the other hand, the one you’re not watching, reaches into his pocket.

Jihad Watch: [Swedish] Truck jihadi had been in Swedish Security Service files: while we don’t want to scapegoat symptoms while ignoring the disease, it is useful to gather information that supports our claims, e.g. that diversity causes conflict. Sites like Jihad Watch, whatever their motive, can act as aggregators for ammunition of this kind. And the story here linked is a good study in more sins of omission, caused by social pressure. Why investigate a possible criminal if doing so will get you fired and blacklisted for “racism?”

Jew Among You: “A group of youths”: the media uses codewords to commit their sins of omission. We can reverse this, both by openly pointing it out, and by mocking it. “Should we let in more ‘youths’ from the Middle East?” By forcing an association between their codewords and the real deal, we can force them to change the language they’re using. When they are forced to change often enough, constantly creating new codephrases, their deception becomes impossible to maintain. People begin to sense that something is up.

RamzPaul: You Can’t Kill Or Censor An Idea: what ultimately brings down the Cathedral is the fact that, sorry guys, but the genie is out of the bottle. No amount of censorship, however subtle and sophisticated, can save the Cathedral from collapsing, because its foundations are rotten and crumbling.

Angry White Dude: We All Knew Something Like This Was Coming: The Trump “fiasco” was inevitable. He has to manage a global hegemonic system, not just his own country. The key is to insist on the correct domestic policies, with foreign policy a distant second.

Neocolonial: Deciphering Wormtongue: the phrase, “political correctness,” is wonderful because it gives a name to our enemy, thereby giving us a target. “Wormtongue,” for those speech codes that operate specifically by inversion, is another such word. These terms need not compete. Rather, they ought to proliferate. The more varied our terminology, the better.

Cernovich: Why the Fake News Is Losing: in case I haven’t driven home the point enough already, I’ll say it again: the Cathedral cannot maintain its control over thought and information against new technologies. The technologies in themselves do not save us, however, so it’s up to us to deliver the push.

Kid Strangelove on Mattforney.com: How Gamergate Leaked Into My Real Life: the time has long passed when deriding the alt-right as an “internet movement” had any merit. While it is important to do real-world activism, we must never forget that deriding something as an “internet phenomenon” is a cheap rhetorical trick that ignores the power that the internet has to shape the thoughtscape of our society.

Racism is Love, Racism Saves Lives, The Scientific Truth is Racist: reclaiming the word ‘racist’ ought to be high on our list of priorities. Inverting that which is already inverted leads to setting things right.

Stuart Schneiderman: America Is Back in the Game: “For Russia, the Syria move may represent a rude discovery that the new American president won’t be the pliant partner that the Kremlin had hoped for. The biggest change in Syria since President Barack Obama declined to take a similar military step there was a dramatic escalation in Russia’s presence on behalf of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.” Remember, the libertarian dream of isolationism is not possible at the moment. Trump won’t make it happen, and Trump himself is only a small step on the way back to health, sanity, and an organic civilization.

Diversity Is Chaos: Researchers from King’s College London have used a genetic scoring technique to predict reading performance throughout school years from DNA alone: another nail in the coffin of the left, we see that scientific insight into human differences is slowly, inexorably, ineluctably eating away at the foundations of egalitarianism.

Diversity Is Chaos: Marvel executive admits that emphasis on diversity has alienated readers: pursuant to the above, it is clear that, no matter how thorough the propaganda is, people can only swallow lies for so long. The more strident the agitprop becomes, the more transparent it becomes. It is only a matter of time, and what is falling must be pushed.

The imperative right now is to take advantage of the left’s present weakness and create long-lasting cultural changes. The key is to break their control over language and information.

The Current Situation

The present wave rising against our current Diverse Internationalist Liberal Democratic Oligarchy (DILDO) is not, contrary to what we may like to think, a simple case of right vs. left, as seen in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is, rather, more like what happens when an old tree rots to the core and is slowly eaten alive by fungi until it falls. In the center, we have the Cathedral, slowly being eaten by the hordes of “populist” ideologies as it rots into obsolescence and irrelevance.

This is, however, driven by a cresting wave deep beneath the surface.

Xenosystems quotes a Leftist source as follows:

…“neoreaction,” or, in a distorted echo of Eliezer Yudkowsky’s vision, the “Dark Enlightenment.” It emerged from the same chaotic process that yielded the anarchic political collective Anonymous, a product of the hivemind generated by the cybernetic assemblages of social media. More than a school of thought, it resembles a meme.

What will rise up in its place? That question is solved simply enough; he who has a coherent, executable vision wins. Not just in terms of what we seek to replace, but in terms of what we seek to build. The cresting wave mentioned earlier must be distilled into an essence, and then brought forth into being.

Further reading along these lines:

Alternative Right: The Anti Civilization of the West: civilization is something positive. Statist imposition of values will not create a new civilization. It must happen organically. And, in order to do that, what do we need? Deregulation, decentralization.

Pat Buchanan: Will “Russiagate” Backfire on the Left?: The Cathedral’s attempts at defending itself become more desperate as it feels itself sinking beneath the waves. Its demise is assured, so time for a coherent vision.

Date Jesus: Politics is Downstream of Biology: The spiritual rot of modernity makes it hard for us to aspire to anything greater, which is why reaching a positive vision of things is such a challenge for us. To construct something to aspire to, rather than merely tearing things down, we must fix ourselves first!

Bruce Charlton at Albion Awakening: It All Began With a Million Miracles: to distill the essence of the rising wave, we reach deep within ourselves. There’s a reason that the Islamic religion thinks of the “greater Jihad” as being within oneself. Once you win the war within, the war without follows as a matter of course.

Date Jesus: To Build a Synthetic Frenchman: “Western civilization is a result of spirit, not something taught.” Indeed! The war within grants access to this spirit, and the rest follows as a matter of course.

Colin Liddell on Alternative Right: The Emotional Freedom of the Alt-Right: this has been linked to once on outliers, but it makes a deep, important point, which is that we have to remember the reasons for our reactions to propaganda and current events. We troll because we want to break ideas, not individuals. If you seek to win the greater Jihad within yourself, this is how to do it.

The National Policy Institute On AltRight.com: Beyond NATO: it is helpful to have short-term strategic goals. One of those is the dissolution of the toxic post-war order in favor of something that not only meets present challenges more effectively, but is more healthy and in line with the nature of our civilization.

The Rot Within and Without

We are accustomed to the adulteration of traditional ideas and the corrosive, subversive influence of anti-culture throughout Western intellectual life. The pace of this decay is quickening, but it’s a rot that will eat alive the institutions that subsidize it:

“Campus agitation for an identity-based curriculum is by now drearily familiar. But Harvard’s recent mandate goes further, creating a new literary typology: On one side are the marginalized authors; on the other, authors who, by implication, may have benefited from “racism, patriarchy and heteronormativity.” Academia has already furnished unlettered students with excuses aplenty to ignore the greatest works of Western civilization. Now they’ve got another one.”

Ruth King on Ruthfully Yours: Does Harvard Consider Oscar Wilde ‘Marginalized’? A new requirement to study authors kept down by ‘racism, patriarchy and heteronormativity.’: affirmative action damages any institution it touches. When that institution is education, it provides a gleam of hope, because the most ardent zealots of the Cathedral willingly make themselves stupid and vulnerable.

Further reading along these lines:

Unorthodoxy: California Fast-Tracks White Nationalism: we see the cultural Marxism of our present crop of institutions eating those institutions alive here as well. By insisting on draconian measures that punish majorities and high-achievers (e.g. people of Western European descent), those institutions invite people to game their systems, accelerating their decline.

Daria Andreeva quoted on AltRight.com: Feminism And Its Right-Wing Alternative: Feminism finds itself caught in internal contradictions as it struggles to deal with the conflict between xenophilia toward Islam, old-style feminist positions, and its own irrelevance following the dissolution of the sexual dichotomy. Again, the rot eats itself.

Wolfie James: 7 Reasons Why Alt-Right Men Are the Hottest: light-hearted, but still true. The drive to self-improvement and self-mastery that defines the rising Right at the present time makes us rather high-quality specimens, if I do say so myself! The rising tide has strength as part of its essence, and that is one reason for its self-reinforcing nature.

Shabbat Meditation: Immigration And Three Twitchy Jewish Nerves: while I don’t believe that “the Jews” are the roots of all of our problems, this article still makes a strong point: the current immigration debates are making politically-incorrect topics, previously taboo, into compulsory discussion points. And this hooks into the broader theme of the Cathedral eating itself alive, with its policies and tactics running face-first into their own contradictions.

Jew Among You: Jewish man arrested over bomb threats [against Jewish centers]: Speaking of Jews, one of the good ones has given us a propaganda windfall. Whenever someone begins crying about the evil Neo-Nazis burning down black churches, we have only to say something like this: “Well, that could be true. Or, it could be a false flag. Here’s an example of a false flag.” And then point to something like this story. More importantly, though, this demonstrates another facet of the rot eating itself alive, in that, when tactics like these are ratcheted up to fever pitch time and time again, they lose their effectiveness.

The Mainstream

Our attack on the mainstream has been working well, which is no surprise, given that the fall of the Cathedral is inevitable at this point. The only question remaining is, what will replace the Cathedral? Regardless, it helps to see some mainstream sources and look at what they’re saying.

Ann Coulter: ‘IMMIGRANT PRIVILEGE’ DRIVES CHILD RAPE EPIDEMIC: One of the best things that can happen for us is for formerly “respectable” conservatives to edge further to the right. Ann Coulter has always been on the edge of the mainstream, but this is a woman who has worked for mainstream news outlets airing talking points that used to be verboten anywhere outside of hard-right internet forums. Lead the charge, Ms. Coulter!

The Daily Beast: Why Glenn Beck’s Media Empire Is Burning Down: Glenn Beck is losing his clout due to “flip flopping,” according to TDB. But we on the Right see something different: those who are trying to save themselves by cucking to the Left are going down in flames. Beck is an opportunist, and he miscalculated, thinking that the Left would snap back and take things back in hand as it has done for the past few centuries. Turning and turning in the widening gyre…

The New York Post: The trolling has only just begun!: As usual, the Cathedral can’t quiet figure out why blaring their message on television and “respectable” websites isn’t working anymore. So they blame “trolls,” failing to understand that media, like everything else, is quickly decentralizing.

This Fictional President Hillary Clinton Twitter Account Will Get You Through The Next Four Years: This is more comedy than anything, but it showcases the fundamental Leftist tendency, which is to ignore realities you don’t like and construct alternative ones. Granted, they all know that they’re just playing pretend, but it does highlight a peculiar part of their psychology.

Brett Stevens Profiled On Alternative Right‘s “Intro To The Alt Right” Series

Monday, March 13th, 2017

Ryan Andrews wrote an interview and profile of Brett Stevens over at Alternative Right as part of its “Intro To The Alt Right” series of interviews.

The profile tackles a number of obscure and provocative topics such as:

The Alt Right is an umbrella term covering several different ideologies and sub-ideologies. Whether it be big or small, an ideological or a factual belief, what is your personal pet issue and why?

I have one issue: restore Western Civilization. This is necessary as a means to the end of my ultimate hope, which is to limit or avoid ecocide, a consequence of overpopulation and land overuse which was set in motion by the liberalization of Western society following the French Revolution. The rest of the world has followed our lead. The philosophy of deep ecology states that we cannot directly attack our environmental damage, but must re-order our civilization to avoid the excesses which cause ecocide. In other words, ecocide is the result of a leadership problem, and our only solution is to fix our leadership and make our society sane again, so that we can clearly see. The knowledge that we are committing ecocide makes our people self-hating, which in turn makes them despair, and so they become even less likely to address this problem. For that reason, the theory of deep ecology led me to realize that Western Civilization must be restored and made healthy in order to avoid the insanity that perpetuates ecocide.

The dying West chortles on, addicted to denial. The herd has been energized by the sense that it is a victim of a strong leader, when in fact a momentary return to temporary sanity from the excesses of the Obama years. In Europe, realist sentiment gains ground as people realize that although we cannot say “Hitler was right,” we can now say “Hitler was right about diversity not working.” Despite the influx of many people into the West, the newcomers have not stopped the decline and the resulting lack of culture has made us go Full Soviet (and you should never go Full Soviet).

The Left, which counted on keeping us all cowed with its Narrative that stated that Leftist ideas are good, howls as it sees that its illusion has been punctured. The sheep are escaping the paddock! Brexit is under assault in the UK and Trump surrounded by traitors, spies and deceivers in the USA. Did the Russians steal the election, or did the Left steal America? The Alt Right surges forth.
