Understanding The Human Ecosystem

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

Bruce Charlton writes an interesting analysis of the use of so-called “hate facts” and their utility:

The systematic and official process of suppressing hate facts began in the middle 1960s (focused on intelligence testing). With the internet, it has never been easier or faster for people to access hate facts – and this outcome was anticipated twenty years ago – but they just don’t.

The public are worse informed than ever before about the basic realities; and the reason is that they are addicted to the mass media, such that it structures their reality.

One view of humanity is the universal, in which all people are basically the same. Another, which is both cooperative and naturalistic, is the ecosystem, which I have been banging on about for years: there is a natural hierarchy of humankind. Those on the bottom emulate those on the top if they are rewarded for performance over appearance, and do the opposite if otherwise.

The big secret to humanity is that about 20% of our population does all of the meaningful activity, and the rest are their employees. Among that 20%, there is a smaller group, probably 5% of the population, who are the natural leaders who everyone else looks up to as examples to emulate or at least defer to as information authorities.

At the back of any office, there is a Suzanne, as there once was at one of my many jobs. Suzanne has made it her quest in life to understand in detail the paperwork the office requires. If you have a question about any one of the many forms in the office, Suzanne can answer it. She still retains the same title she had when coming into the office, and has not gotten a raise, but she spends over half of her time helping others do their jobs and the office has organically shifted — lowering her expected personal work output — in order to allow her to do this.

Suzanne acts the way she does because she can do nothing else. She values doing the job right in part because it means that the uglier labor of fixing botched jobs can be avoided. She likes having a sense of power over her future, and being rewarded. And materially speaking, she will always have a job and be informally valued, at least as long as her superiors are sensible people (this is why Suzanne will be the first to leave if her new boss is an idiot).

There are many types of Suzannes. Some are clerks, like the Suzanne in this story. Others are “people persons,” or social experts. Some have specific domains of knowledge. And some are natural leaders, the types who could be CEOs, but may choose lower-impact roles to have more time with their families and selves, which also reflects greater leadership vision (rest the troops). Those natural leaders are the ones that most people unconsciously emulate, if doing things well is rewarded.

This leads us to hate facts. The natural leaders are aware of these. You cannot be a successful leader and deny what Richard Spencer calls “human nature” but we might say is the mathematics of being human, namely that traits must be unequally distributed in order to encourage internal competition and thus evolution. There is more to it than that, but that is a larger topic for another time.

In my view, what is more important than hate facts is logical fact, such as the idea that diversity can never work because each group has ethnic self-interest and these naturally clash when different to any significant degree. That is why Western Europeans could come together to form America and work together, and why white suburbs work naturally, but diverse societies are insane.

An important mode of focus for the Alt Right is this: we recognize logical fact and this reveals to use that civilization is a genetic construct, that diversity can never work, that equality is an impossible Utopian dream, and that we need hierarchy and social order (including caste, the original topic of Charlton’s that caused him to see the PC brigades at work). These are facts of life not because of data we have collected, but the structure of reality based on its internal needs, such as competition and leadership.

We often talk about “red pilling normies” but what we really need to do is black pill the natural leaders. Put them into a nihilistic frame of mind where they are no longer thinking of success in social terms, meaning appearance, but as success by making groups work together by accepting people as the sums of their inherent capacities. With that mindset, natural leaders avoid the insanity of Utopian visions.

This is why the Left adores what most call “relativism,” which is simply the equation Bad = Good. When there is no difference between bad and good, right and wrong, realism and human intent, then anything goes, and this allows the parasitic Left to hide within the chaos. It is their camouflage and uniform.

The correct way to beat them is to avoid the trap they have laid, which is the temptation to attack specific groups. Instead, we should look at the structure of civilization and ask, what works? With that, we have escape the pretense of human intent, and can start talking about ourselves as we are, and find social orders that function better than the current rule by chaos.

The Alt Right

Thursday, October 27th, 2016


The Alt Right rose, then tried to figure out what it was. It knew a general direction, which was that it said the stuff that the mainstream Right wanted to but could not and still keep its jobs, but beyond that, it was confused.

It arose from a mishmash of philosophies. The New Right, Traditionalism, White Nationalism, Paleoconservatives, Neoreaction, Nietzschean conservatives and Dark Enlightenment met in a blender. Some have suggested that the intersection among them is right, but more likely, it is their shared forward ideal: a resurrection of the greatness of Western Civilization, and to that end, the means and methods required to achieve it.

Many have contemplated it. Among the best:

And that is only a small sampling of all that has been written on this topic, although these pieces at least cover all topics and link to all major articles. And still, the definition remains fuzzy… let us look at some recent sources:

“Will The Real Alt-Right Please Stand Up?”:

It seems to me that, if anything, the Alt-Right is a blanket term applied to all non-mainstream conservatives of all stripes that serves more as a negation than a positive claim. In other words, if anything, the Alt-Right brings people together based on what they mutually dislike, not a shared set of ideas.

Mr. Heft makes an essential basic point here: the Alt Right is formed in opposition to modernity, and there are many degrees of this. On the farthest Right, people want a restoration of traditional civilization to provide a new golden age of Pericles, as Arthur Schopenhauer suggested. We know what we do not want: the soul-killing, environment-killing, culture-destroying, pointless and tedious modern age, despite its good shopping and wide variety of ethnic food.

And what distinguishes those views?

“The Rise Of The Radical Right: The Alt Right, Neoreaction And The Trump Campaign”:

Meanwhile, the movement itself is an amalgamation of all ‘alternative’ right wing views that are today considered heterodoxy. This means that the views of one person who considers himself to be part of the ‘Alt-Right’ can be, though do not necessarily have to be, radically different to another.

Summary: these views are socially unacceptable. Taboo, in other words, they are forbidden by informal social rules from being uttered. All of the people who are currently thriving in this wasteland think that these things should not be mentioned. So: speakers of hidden, or dare we say… occult… notions of reality.

A New Right thinker of note expands on this:

“A Talk With Daniel Friberg, Co-Founder Of Arktos and RightOn:

What I mean with the Real Right are those people, organisations and ideologies who do not accept the framework that the Left has set on the public debate.

…The success of the Alt Right illustrates the effectiveness of metapolitical methods. Via cultural means they have changed discourse and the boundaries of the public debate; they have changed the restraints of how we are allowed to think and eroded the shared dogmas of the Left and Old Right.

Two points here: first, this is a cultural revolution, and second, it rejects Leftist vocabulary. This is important because social pressures invert terms or reverse their meanings in order to control a population of faceless equals. Cultural revolution means that instead of fighting over existing political symbols, we decide what we want first and then cause it to rise organically through many avenues.

And then follows an attempt to simplify…

“We Are The Alt-Right”

Equality is bullshit. Hierarchy is essential. The races are different. The sexes are different. Morality matters and degeneracy is real. All cultures are not equal and we are not obligated to think they are. Man is a fallen creature and there is more to life than hollow materialism. Finally, the white race matters, and civilization is precious. This is the Alt-Right.

This expresses the formula that Alex Birch and I worked up for CORRUPT back in 2008:

  • Anti-democracy. Realizing that mob rule and trends do not successfully substitute for leadership by quality people.

  • Human Biodiversity (HBD). Recognizing the differences between groups, and more importantly individuals, and that every ability fits a normal distribution pattern in every population.

  • Ethnic Self-Determination. Every ethnic group needs its own self-rule and its own continent. This is not an argument against any specific ethnic group but a recognition that each group has its own self-interest and that under diversity these clash. Diversity does not work, no matter which groups are the ingredients.

  • Transcendental Purpose. We must find some way to connect to the beauty of this world and understand nature as an order superior to our own intentions, possibly including the metaphysical side of nature which is described by the various religions.

  • Anti-equality. Equality works for arithmetic, not people and not groups, including social castes, races, ethnic groups and families. People are different, with different abilities that are mostly genetic if not all genetic.

In a time when many people want to enter the Alt Right, and control it by redefining it, it is important to remember this bottom line: The Alt Right is against equality.

That dividing line separates the wannabes from the real deal. The wannabes will accept everything else but that; they want to eject certain ethnic groups, but are not against diversity itself; they want to throw out the elites, and then hold more elections to get new rotten elites. They want us to all be Orthodox Medieval Crusader Catholics, but then, equality is the basis of their social order (as long as one prays twice a day whilst facing Mecca, or, perhaps Pennsylvania). All of them get it wrong.

The Alt Right is a revolution against the past millennium. We do not believe in equality. From that, all else flows; equality is the illusion of our time dating back to before the Peasant Revolutions and the Magna Carta. It is the basis of all modernity, all Leftism, and the type of collectivized individualism that creates these things (which in turn arises from civilization success which enables lower orders to outnumber the higher).

This brings us back to the first opinion cited above: the Alt Right is a rejection of Modernity, with modernity not being a span of years or a type of technology, but a type of civilization design based in equality. Modernity is the cold night of the moon to the warm sun of the golden ages of humankind.

The Alt Right formed in order to get away from both mainstream conservatism, which is a hybrid of Leftism called “liberalism” or “neoconservatism,” as well as White Nationalism which essentially wants a classless society in the Leftist model in which all white people are merged together into a grey white race, sometimes called “ethno-Bolshevism.”

White Nationalism is filled with crazies and is at least 50% informants. It failed for a reason. If anything, White Nationalism is a stepping stone to reach the Alt Right. White Nationalism, and its precursor National Socialism, are still stuck in the modern paradigm of equality, “Systems” of rules and regulations, and allowing material orders like demotism — consumerism, democracy and social popularity/peer pressure — to determine what is right. The Alt Right wants us to find what is right, and then have society pursue that, instead of the other way around.

If anything, the Alt Right is more Nationalist than White Nationalism. It recognizes the need for national and regional identity in the identitarian model; it rejects the idea of forming a generic white race and then allowing modernity to exist as it has. It throws down the Constitution and burns the Declaration of Independence. The Alt Right is total rejection of modernity.

Unlike Neoreaction, the Alt Right gives a nod to Radical Traditionalism, the system of thought espoused by Rene Guenon, Aldous Huxley and Julius Evola. It wants a rising civilization against, capable of the greatness of the past.

For this reason, the Alt Right is challenging to define, because first and foremost it requires people to accept an entirely different view of civilization than anything they see around them. Then it leads them through rejection of what exists now, and some basic ideas of what they want instead. Then it shows them the substructure required to support those ideas, and suddenly, we have left modernity far behind, like Peter Pan sailing over London at night.

Those who want to control the Alt Right are trying to boil it down to a single principle, like how the Leftist ideology has “equality” at its core. This takes what is not-modern and places it back within the modern, effectively neutering it. This amounts to entryism by Leftism into the Alt Right and will sabotage it as surely as making it a Justin Bieber fan club.

Instead, the Alt Right suggests we keep going past all boundaries and all expectations. Our societies are doomed if they stay on the current path; this is a good time to dream, and for the first instance, to get it right. We are facing an evolutionary hurdle here: either we surpass modernity, or it buries us.

Perhaps the above will help some intrepid venturers make the journey.
