Since the introduction of my first book, Nihilism: A Philosophy Based In Nothingness And Eternity, response has been wonderful. The old wisdom that the most fortunate writer is one with intelligent readers comes into play here, especially as I see people whose work I admire receiving copies. Hopefully these will not disappoint them!

And others find surprises in the mail as well, such as this reader who sent in a picture of his copy:

Nihilism: A Philosophy Based In Nothingness and Eternity, by Brett Stevens

My first published book, Nihilism: A Philosophy Based In Nothingness and Eternity, has been released by Manticore Press and is available for purchase through Amazon. This allows you to receive a copy printed in your home country and avoid expensive international shipping, which otherwise would exceed the price of the book.

The publisher and I worked together to keep the price reasonable at $16.95 for the paperback version, which is the lowest we can go without cutting out publisher rewards entirely. It was exceptionally good of Manticore Press and its staff to invest so much time, caring and good will in this book. I hope you all enjoy it.

There is a serpent in every Eden
Slick as grease and cold as ice
There is a lie in every meaning
Rest assured to fool you twice

In this age of utter madness
We maintain we are in control
And ending life before deliverance
While countries are both bought and sold1

I dream of demons. Redrum. Therapy. Love. Civilization.

Two Types Of Success

For those who write, there are at least two types of success: popularity and accuracy. There is an inverse relationship between the two but a sweet spot — a relatively narrow spot, and never ensuring Kardashian-level popularity — exists.

This fragile balance however easily disturbs itself because the writer will experience massive pressure to “succeed,” generally at the expense of only a little bit of accuracy at first, much as when writing a sentence a writer can opt to make the sentence simpler, punchier and more flavorful at the price of introducing inexactitude.

At first, the writer may sacrifice perhaps ten percent accuracy and relevance and substitute it with what makes writing popular, which is (literally) more of the same stuff that people always like to read: sex, violence, scapegoating, victimhood, one-dimensional morality plays, hype. But over time the percentage increases because the audience is mostly driven by the filler instead of the content, and stop rewarding it, at the same time any audience concerned with content drops out.

This blog has avoided the sweet spot for this reason and opts instead to be an internal dialogue for all critics of the human tendency toward illusion. Its goal is not to popularize these ideas, but to float them to those who will popularize them, which has been successful over the years (writings on this site include versions of texts developed in the late 1980s).

The payoff of this approach is that the filter of communication is reduced, and the ability to be exact is increased, which fits with the mission to diagnose human illusion and explain why it is wrong and produces bad consequences.

This means that our writers do not hand people the appearance they seek, visually or in the arguments advanced. People expect certain clusters of ideas to clump together and form a football team style “side,” and then to bang the tin drum about them and cheer and use those ideas to imply that other people are morons.

Here a different approach is taken, which is to recognize that all of us humans are morons by nature — or rather, monkeys, sometimes with car keys — who can improve ourselves by understanding ourselves, and through that our world, and finally, the options available for our purpose.

Some of our coming articles are a bit rough, especially for those on the right. Conventions will be violated, convenient explanations debunked, and holy cows spit-roasted with jalapeno sauce. Then again, if you are reading here, you expect nothing less.

Neoreaction Conference To Be Held In London

neoreaction_conference

We do not live in tolerant times. As in the former Soviet Union or today’s Cuba, there is an official Correct Way to think and those who fail to think this way, even if they do not explicitly disagree with it, find themselves excluded from opportunities and social groups.

Despite that, a brave group of arts community members are trying to bridge the divide. Later this year, they will launch an exhibit named Neoreaction, which is ‘an open [conference for] open minded progressives’ that explores Neoreactionary and Reactionary thought. This will be a short conference of talks and screenings on the subject of neoreactionary philosophy and politics, which the presenters view as one of the most interesting discursive spaces online in current times.

Hosted at a gallery in East London, the conference will be metaphorically playing with (ideological) fire, since Neoreaction and Reactionary thought are in opposition to modernity, liberalism and in fact every political assumption widely held in Western societies today. Already two members of the team, fearing for the loss of social and economic opportunities, have had to drop out, but the rest are soldiering on.

If you wish to attend, or are from the media and wish a press pass, please email conference@amerika.org which forwards to the organizers, who will remain anonymous until they are able to verify your good faith participation.
