Leftism

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Why do those of us who care about maintaining civilization need to be on the Right? And why maintain civilization at all?

Humans are inherently social beings. Born weak, we depend on tools; those make life more complicated. As a result, we exist in a symbiotic relationship with other humans so we can specialize some functions or at least cooperate toward group goals like building, hunting, agriculture and learning. Civilization is necessary for us.

To maintain civilization, humans need to keep the society sane and individuals sane. Sane in this case means aware of reality, or how our actions will play out in the world, and therefore prone to pick actions which achieve what we need to do. Deviation from this means that we will become unrealistic, chase symbolic challenges and ignore the real, and fail after that.

The Left consists of a single idea: equality. This notion protects the individual because equality translates into mandatory universal inclusion, or that every individual is kept within a civilization regardless of their behavior or contributions. This guarantees every individual a place at the table, which means that individuals cannot fail or die because their actions were unrealistic.

We know this through history. Much as happened in Athens, first there was The Enlightenment™ which proclaimed “man as the measure of all things.” From that came human self-worship, which deprecated ideas like a natural hierarchy of human beings mirroring the world of the divine or even of logic. Instead of natural order, we got a human order.

After that, all that remained was to put this into practice, which was done through democracy. Democracy proclaims that the vote of an insane homeless person is equal to that of a genius with superior leadership capabilities. Whatever the largest number of people want, they get, which is the type of utilitarian thinking that arises when people stop trying to find realistic answers and focus on what is popular.

Democracy is the political system of egalitarianism, which is the philosophy of equality:

An egalitarian favors equality of some sort: People should get the same, or be treated the same, or be treated as equals, in some respect. An alternative view expands on this last-mentioned option: People should be treated as equals, should treat one another as equals, should relate as equals, or enjoy an equality of social status of some sort. Egalitarian doctrines tend to rest on a background idea that all human persons are equal in fundamental worth or moral status. So far as the Western European and Anglo-American philosophical tradition is concerned, one significant source of this thought is the Christian notion that God loves all human souls equally. Egalitarianism is a protean doctrine, because there are several different types of equality, or ways in which people might be treated the same, or might relate as equals, that might be thought desirable. In modern democratic societies, the term “egalitarian” is often used to refer to a position that favors, for any of a wide array of reasons, a greater degree of equality of income and wealth across persons than currently exists.

The Right is that which did not adopt equality because we prefer a non-human order, or one based on things larger than the individual like culture, heritage, religion, values, natural order and hierarchy. To be conservative, one must care about the world beyond oneself on a longer time scale than an individual life. The Right are those who build civilizations; the Left tear them down.

Most conservatives do not know this because they are focused on individual fascinations — patriotism, religion, race and economics foremost among them — and so they do not look at the big picture in the long term as one must when designing a civilization. They think that we can have equality plus racial awareness, or that if everyone just finds Jesus everything will work out okay.

In reality, civilization is defined by its goals. When we focus on ourselves, which we do because the signals from our egos and social groups are in our heads and therefore stronger than perceptions of reality, we lose sight of our actual goal and replace it with human goals. These are largely symbolic, like other people liking us or an idea being popular, and innately deny reality.

The future belongs to those who want to build civilization. Under Leftism, our civilization has collapsed. We can only rebuild it by abandoning equality and focusing on the task of civilization — starting with the notion of understanding reality — itself.

Fear Of Inequality Is Humanity Chasing Its Own Tail

Friday, June 9th, 2017

“The system is unequal,” you keep hearing. Everybody needs a fair chance. and I agree. Everybody needs the chance to prove themselves. Every person must have access to the basic social, cultural and economic footholds needed to make it in society today. This is a non-debatable issue that all systems agree upon.

Children deserve to live their childhood, get a solid education and be culturally enabled to take on the world by the time they graduate. This is the starting point that exists everywhere, and where all people kick off from zero, from equal standing. So what seems to be the real demand of the equality jihadist?

What the equality jihadist fails to tell you, is that they also want equality of outcomes. What if, by some foul nasty trick, someone again gets ahead of the rest? What if by some cheat code, inequality rears up its ugly head again and be a cause of injustice and misery for humanity?

You hear a lot about equality and fairness but this is all a scrambling tactic hiding the real motive behind the calling for equality: the obliteration of any end results beyond the generic and the mediocre.

Leftist activists confuse their readership and the public at large by creating the narrative that they want equality of chances — a noble ideal — for people starting up in life, so that they are able to succeed. Such an impassioned demand is guaranteed to captivate all audiences.

The equality jihadist wins the attention of the public. People are entranced by so much altruism and nobility of the heart. The leftist is a Jedi of posturing and he manages to cling the proverbial high ground from which he now dispenses his moralizing and virtue signaling. He then claims that only he wants equality of chances and that other political opponents are sadists. Massive applause ensues.

But as soon as he develops his idea, those who are not fully entranced by the equality jihadist start replaying their own life. They clearly remember that back in class, there were the poor and the rich students, bright and mediocre ones, lazy and studious ones, and smart and slow ones. Sometimes, there were poorer students who did better in class than richer ones, and vice versa. In sports class there were those who made it to the school football team, those who climbed a rope in seconds, those who had superior muscular strength, and those who collapsed after running thirty meters. There were those who were gifted in painting, or handy in bushcraft and making campfires. There were those who were the most at ease in the chemistry lab and awed the rest of the class with their chemical mixes. They remember their own childhood and how each one of them had different preferences and ability for different activities, hobbies, food, music or clothing.

Clearly each of those children and each of those siblings had their equal chance to start, and each used their time differently and in varying degrees of efficiency and outcome… creating a colorful diversity. That same diversity which the equality jihadist is now calling “inequality” because he has translated this diversity into economic values, which are the only criteria that interest the equality jihadist…

People start to wake up and realize what the leftist is saying. They realize he is trying to make not all opportunities uniform — because they already are! — but all ends. Horror replaces trance as the true intentions of the equality jihadist start taking shape, but it’s probably too late because everybody already cast their vote for the equality jihadist. The equality jihadist is in fact, frothing at the fact of seeing some people earning more and achieving higher social and economic success than others. Such getting ahead is deemed unfair by the equality jihadist and so, many of his own supporters are brought under the blade for failing to be equal.

Equality is an attractive concept, because in our times, it has become loaded with notions of fairness and nobody getting left behind. This is what makes it popular to the masses and by consequence, to the voters, regardless of how distinguished their diplomas are. It only shows its actual meaning once the voting and partying daze are over and reality knocks on the door.

Let us consider the reality of inequality, which is that not only is it inherent, but that we benefit from it as revealed in a short parable:

“For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey. Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. And likewise he who had received two gained two more also. But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money. After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them.

“So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’ His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ He also who had received two talents came and said, ‘Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.’ His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

“Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.’

“But his lord answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed. So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.

‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

The equality jihadist is here not to help you have a better life, but to rob you of choices, of dreams, of aspirations. In an equal world, where all outcomes are state-managed to remain equal, the equality jihadist suffers no complaint from you, who voted for his program. A complaint means you are an obstacle to the equality Utopia. The equality jihadist finds your lack of faith disturbing…

Houellebecq On The Emptiness Of “Careers”

Saturday, May 20th, 2017

This one has been making the rounds, but, it serves as an observation that modern life leaves nothing for the future especially in careers:

Children existed solely to inherit a man’s trade, his moral code and his property. This was taken for granted among the aristocracy, but merchants, craftsmen and peasants also bought into the idea, so it became the norm at every level of society. That’s all gone now: I work for someone else, I rent my apartment from someone else, there’s nothing for my son to inherit. I have no craft to teach him, I haven’t a clue what he might do when he’s older. By the time he grows up, the rules I lived by will have no value—he will live in another universe. If a man accepts the fact that everything must change, then he accepts that life is reduced to nothing more than the sum of his own experience; past and future generations mean nothing to him. That’s how we live now. For a man to bring a child into the world now is meaningless.

Jobs make you into a robot. Aristocracy makes each person have a place without being equal. One does not work at all, but the other mostly works. Even when it fails, it is better off that its alternative in the long term.

Instead, we get the standard human behavior: a compromise, more aimed at reducing risk to the present tense than creating something positive in the future tense.

Jobs are jails. Democracy is slavery. Socialism is control. Until we overthrow these things that “seem” good but are actually toxic, we are doomed to live among our own failures.

As Democracy Fades, A “Fash Wave” Sweeps Western Thought

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

A new wave of awareness is spreading the West: the recognition that words are used to rationalize and justify choices, not to make them based on the logical capacities of the mind.

Politics, culture and academia show signs of massive discontent because people realize that words were used as weapons, to argue for what is convenient for the speaker, instead of as we think of them, which is a way to find truth, actuality and reality.

With the rise of the internet, it became clear that symbols not only are not reality, but create a false reality. People fight it out and then decide based on the symbols, not what they refer to. The map is not the territory.

One might see this as the culmination of postmodernism, a movement arguably launched by Fred Nietzsche’s “On Truth And Lies In A Non-Moral Sense.” This document cast doubt on the universal meaning of words, and saw them instead as gesture of human minds bent on controlling one another by inducing the mind to project inferred meaning onto the world.

With the fall of language comes the realization that our supposed goals, like “freedom” and “equality,” are in fact paths to internal sabotage. People use freedom to say anything they want, and equality to defend against accusations that their words are insane, and then bad together with others to support each other in insisting this replacement reality is actually true.

Along with this comes the realization that all civilizations fail the same way: when they get wealthy enough and big enough, they can no longer agree on purpose or what is good, so they set up a “proxy” or symbolic substitute, forgetting that good alone is the target.

Since this symbolic substitute is simpler than the real task, people work the system instead of working toward its goal. This quickly inverts meaning from purpose toward individual advancement, and people become parasitic and predatory, tearing society apart into as many directions as there are people.

As this realization settles in, people are becoming tired of tolerating others. They want another standard, which is to tolerate only what is accurate and real, because only that returns good results and allows us to have purpose, which every society needs.

They are tired of people acting selfishly, and offloading the costs to society at large. Civilization then suffers because it has always advanced through the talents and dedication of a small minority who are compelled to make realistic choices, even when those involve self-sacrifice.

After years of The Enlightenment™ philosophy, which is basically a highly ornamented version of “everyone do whatever you want, and no one can criticize you and they will all be forced to support you,” people are tired of dealing with unrealistic, selfish, solipsistic and emotional reasoning from others.

The catch is that there is no “we” in decision-making; there are only those who know, and everyone else. Knowing occurs in degrees. Among every population, there is a natural elite of people who are both realistic and capable of thinking toward the best possible outcome of the future. These are required to decide what is real because they are more accurate and honest in their thinking than the vast majority. Like all human traits, this follows a “bell curve” where only a small group have enough of the ability to be accurate instruments.

For centuries, the individualistic West has rebelled against the idea of natural leaders, preferring “equality” or the notion that “my ignorance (and inability) is as good as your knowledge (and ability).” We all benefit when the most competent are in charge, and suffer when they are not, least of all because of constant internal friction, competition and infighting.

From this comes a “fash wave,” or a backlash against equality and its political cohorts, democracy and socialism (“economic equality”). People want hard rules that force us back into line, a strict hierarchy, a clear purpose and utter intolerance for the swamp of parasites and predators that are draining our vitality.

This wave no longer fears the extreme; it desires it. It wants to bash down the bad and promote the good in their place. It wants to end the freeloading, free riders and counterproductive people who have had a field day under democracy. Our societies are broke and broken, and we want function again, which requires that we sacrifice our individualistic desire to be judged correct in whatever we do.

Standards, goals and principles are returning. The Bohemian idea that individual self-expression is more important than what is real is dying. This wave has begun at the bottom, namely the non-political individual not vested in the system, but has support from the small business owners and people of authority at the local level.

It is gratifying to see for those of us who have watched the parasites and predators devour everything good, and the bad guys always win, for decades personally and for centuries through our reading of history. We want to thrive again. We are tired of the utilitarian standard that whatever makes “most people” sit down, shut up and keep eating is the best idea.

With this fash wave comes a singular warning: much as proxies for the good lead to bad results, dictators are also a proxy for the good. We need to target the good and use our best people as means to that end. They serve not us, but civilization of past and future through its principles and ethnic group, no matter how wealthy and powerful they are.

The fash wave will first aim to destroy all that is rotten and in doing so, will create a vacuum of power. If we do not have an idea of what we will replace that vacuum with, we will get the default, which is strongmen who work within the idea of motivating masses of people toward arbitrary objectives.

A more sensible goal is to return to biology and to form a purpose based on survival: our subspecies is unique, and must adapt to and master its environment, aiming not for perfection (“Utopia”) but the best possible outcome for the longest possible duration. This requires a more nuanced, specific and heterogeneous solution than ideology and mass motivation will give us.

A Flag Under Which We Can All Unite

Monday, May 8th, 2017

We may not agree on the how, what or when. We may not even agree on why. But if the past 228 years have shown us anything, it is that we will get nowhere unless we reject the founding assumption of all these systems — consumerism, democracy, diversity, bureaucracy — which is that humans are interchangeable parts, made equal so they can follow the doctrine of humankind.

Under this flag we can unite. From that moment, we know we must do: alter our culture to see “equality” as comedic and toxic nonsense, and then start figuring out what that means.

Income Tax Is Totalitarian Slavery

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

Income tax seems normal. Except that it takes from the productive and gives to the non-functional. There is no way to make this parasitism seem normal:

The great essayist Frank Chodorov once described the income tax as the root of all evil. His target was not the tax itself, but the principle behind it. Since its implementation in 1913, he wrote, “The government says to the citizen: ‘Your earnings are not exclusively your own; we have a claim on them, and our claim precedes yours; we will allow you to keep some of it, because we recognize your need, not your right; but whatever we grant you for yourself is for us to decide.”

He really does have a point. That’s evil. When Congress ratified the 16th Amendment on Feb. 3, 1913, there was a sense in which all private income in the U.S. was nationalized. What was not taxed from then on was a favor granted unto us, and continues to be so.

Income tax reverses the order of civilization: in a sane order, money flows from those who have produced excess, and is then re-invested by those to take advantage of their expertise. They can be kept in check by a caste system, which ensures that profits flow to those who will use them sensibly outside of an economic context, but otherwise, it allows those who are good at producing to keep producing and enhance that position.

On the other hand, income tax and other “progressive” (read: egalitarian, therefore wealth redistribution oriented) programs take from the productive and transfer to the unproductive, which gives the unproductive equal power. Since the unproductive are a large group, and the productive are not organized, this effects a transfer of power to those who are inept. Nonetheless, it is popular especially with young men and women because it is a form of pacifism, whereby we stop struggling for money and instead subsidize everyone.

When we find ourselves in a redistributionist state, it becomes clear that society is heading in a downward direction. In the name of equality, it penalizes the good and subsidizes the bad, which creates an advantage to the bad and quickly swells that group while diminishing the good.

Our only escape from this is to escape the ideal of redistribution itself, but this presents a problem. Redistribution is vital to the idea of equality, since nature does not make us equal and therefore humanity must enforce equality by “Robin Hood” measures. It must take from the thriving and give to the flailing.

Until equality fails, we will have an endless process of wealth transfer programs disguised as taxes, healthcare, pensions, benefits, unions, meritocracy, affirmative action and political tolerance. Our only escape is to smash the idea of equality itself.

Conservatism Pulling Away From Patriotism And Christianity

Monday, April 24th, 2017

Conservatism inevitably finds itself in conflict with its only real competition, which is the public form of conservatism. The root of conservatism is anti-social; conservatives recognize that most human ideas are pretense and vaingloriousness, and instead point to time-honored methods of achieving the best results.

In America, conservatives are additionally hampered by the fact of the founding of our nation-state in a modified version of Enlightenment™-era thought: individuals are assumed to be equal, which means that we have no social order like caste or hierarchy of aristocrats.

We bemoan our current state of affairs, but it is hard to see how it would turn out differently. When you begin a nation with the mistaken notion that all people are capable of guiding their own destiny, you end up with mob rule, no matter how many little rules — “checks and balances,” “accountability” — you tack on top.

What nihilists know that everyone else denies is that language has no inherent meaning. Only when two people are both using a word to mean the same thing can the word have shared meaning, and otherwise you have two people talking to themselves and hoping the other can intuit what is being gestured.

“There are no truths, only interpretations,” said a wise man, and this is true in that objects in the world are real, and we have only our impressions of them, which by the nature of our cognition are interpretations of fact patterns. This means that laws, like other facts, become adjusted to fit what the audience can understand, not just in a Dunning-Kruger sense but in all ways.

For this reason, checks and balances fail like other laws: instead of bending to the law, people bend the law and justify it however is convenient and popular. It took only a century and a half for the United States to completely invert the original ideal of its nation, which was an ethnically Western European agrarian nation with English-style social strata and a mostly absent government, and this change provoked the Civil War.

Since those who wanted a liberal-style modern government — also in vogue in Europe at the time — won that war, America successfully obliterated its Constitution and replaced it with a Leftist interpretation of the Constitution that emphasized more the emotional language of the Declaration of Independence than the substance of the law.

Americans talk about freedom, liberty, and independence, but these are surrogates for democracy. They represent the raging ego seeking to deny reality by saying “My intent and choices come first, and reality comes second,” because the smallest indivisible unit of society is now the individual. This leads to self-destruction and misery through social chaos, but the ego cares not about that.

People need guidance and hierarchy. A look at The Bell Curve reveals part of the reason why: most are not gifted with the IQs required to make complex decisions, and too many are given just enough intelligence to feel clever and make those decisions incorrectly. There are a few, maybe 5%, who do all the important thinking, and the rest oppose these because the rest will never understand the best.

Among that group, there are only some qualified to lead, which is a trait of moral character and personality as much as anything else. A leader is able to apply cold logic to filter out the normal human insanity, and to recognize that most people are self-deluding and pretentiously self-aggrandizing without falling into hatred for them. This group is at most 1% of any population.

For this reason, any form of demotism — democracy, equality, consumerism, social popularity — will lead to an inversion of the natural hierarchy such that the rest oppress the best, and this has predictably laughable results which we see around us daily: ugly architecture, garbage mass culture, insubstantial food, moronic leaders, tedious jobs, brain-dead moral interpretations.

Conservatism inherently recognizes this failing. We are realists who want the best qualitative degree of civilization and personal existence possible, and realize how those two are linked. Conservatism has never been pro-democracy, and with the collapse of the United States through the election of an outright Socialist charlatan like Barack Obama, we can now no longer be pro-America.

It is time to take the stars and stripes and set it on fire. Smash down all the American institutions. Blow up the Washington Monument, melt down all the statues, and consign the pitiful ruins of the United States to the dustbin of history. This experiment has failed, and from it we have learned that democracy cannot be successfully limited because it grows like a cancer since it appeals to the inherent self-deceptive tendency of human beings.

Patriotism at this point is the opposite of conservatism. If you become a patriot, you are fighting against conservative ideals like hierarchy, nationalism, moral goodness and transcendental purpose. The United States was not designed a Leftist republic, but ideas are measured not by their starting points or intentions, but what they become in the course of their natural life cycle. Any form of democracy quickly becomes something approximating Communism — roughly what we have now — and so there is no point setting even a toe on that path. It is a path to doom.

In the same way that patriotism has failed us, the idea of theocracy has run out on us too. Most conservatives embrace the mentally laziest path of least resistance, which is to insist that we cuck ourselves by following the “work hard, go to church and have a family” approach which enslaves all of us to paying taxes to our enemies and wasting our days in servitude. Obviously anyone advocating this has missed the point, which is to thwart this empire of death by dropping out of it.

As part of their desire to bond us to the failing regime, conservatives tend to say things like “we must follow the Bible first, and this must guide all that we do.” This destroys political activity by limiting its scope to the individual, which conveniently takes that individual out of circulation so that others can rule him. A more idiotic path would be hard to invent.

Unfortunately, this approach is inherent to the idea of a “personal God” as is found in Christianity. The ancients more correctly depicted the gods as uninterested in our affairs, which made it explicit and clear that we are in the driver’s seat and must save ourselves through cooperation. No amount of personal virtue overcomes a dying regime.

In addition, it is time that we mention the Otherness of Christianity. Although it is mostly Greek ideas — combined with the best of Babylonian, Hindu, Jewish, Nordic and Buddhist thought — Christianity consists of those restated in the personal and emotional methods of the Jewish cantors, instead of the more respectable Talmudic esoteric tradition. For this reason, like democracy, Christianity will always decay into a mass movement and adulterate any meaning into what the Crowd desires.

It does not make sense to, like Nietzsche, blame Christianity for the origin of Leftism. The dirty secret is that Leftism is merely the egoism of the herd, and it is an in-built flaw to humanity, especially among the smarter (but not genius) humans. We love to self-delude and this takes the form not of death-denial but solipsism, which is reality-denial, so that we feel like gods on earth. Crowdism took over Christianity just like it took over the West, by subverting and inverting it, but this means that Christianity is insufficiently resistant.

Part of this lack of resistance is its Otherness. We will always feel like a conquered people when our religion comes from lands other than our own, and when the symbols are not ours, but those of another culture. We obliterate our culture with Christianity by admiring its effectiveness in mobilizing others and forgetting that this means the Crowd will soon rule.

Many of us adore the European Christian traditions we know. We love the old churches, the hymns, the strong moral standards and the love of learning. Many good things happened under Christianity, but this does not mean that they are exclusive to Christianity. We need a new Bible, one that implies more than states rules which can be misinterpreted, that comes from our own lands.

Conservatives have faced a hopeless task for centuries. Leftism is always more popular and just as proportionately more wrong. Retreating to core values like purpose/work, religion and love of nation seems like a good idea, but when those things have been replaced by corrupt ersatz substitutes, this means you conservatives will be working for the enemy. Not a good idea.

I have dreaded writing this essay for years, but it needs to be out there. Reject patriotism and theocracy, and instead, let us look toward a future: we need a government by Us and for Us, and a religion that is the same, and we need to let failed institutions like the Church and Constitution slide into the abyss of failure toward which they will drag us, if we do not step off that treadmill.

Happy HitLARP Holiday!

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

April 20th brings with it many memories, including Columbine, teenage potheads, and of course, Adolf Hitler. This brings out the HitLARPers who want us to believe that if we just adopted National Socialism, everything would be fine, and they are going to act the part as defined by Hollywood to show us how.

My own opinion has long been that Hitler, like every other leader, was a mix of good and bad. The bad in his case seems traumatic because it invokes genocide and tyranny, but in reality, this pales in comparison to what, say, Joseph Stalin or Chairman Mao did. The Left just LARPs on the anti-Hitler trip in order to conceal how much more their people have been committing murder, torture and oppression since the French Revolution at least, having become known for secret police, gulags, executions at dawn and guillotining whole families.

But Hitler had a few good points. He recognized that diversity cannot work. He wanted to restore an organic state based in the ethnic group. He knew that modernity was a failure and its aesthetics needed reversal. Unfortunately, he tried to do these from within a modern context, and so ended up with modern results, namely catastrophe. Not that he could have escaped it; the world was poised for downfall, and most people were suicidal after “the war to end all wars,” so it demanded a fratricidal and pointless war and got it. Did anyone win WWII?

We also have to wonder how much of The Official History™ is actually fake. After all, they’ve been lying to us for centuries.

The Left always lies, and the Left is the party of modernity, and modernity has turned out to be kind of boring, where we all live in bubble worlds and work in cubicles and no one is really happy but the money is OK so we carry on. Maybe we can finally escape the Left. It will require going farther Right than Hitler and rejecting modernity entirely. We need to restore Western Civilization, and since the dawn of time, there has been only one structure of civilization that has worked. It is not that we want to go back to that; we want to go forward to it, like moving from winter to spring even though spring was only six months ago.

In the meantime, the Alt Right needs to get over its HitLARPing. We are not White Nationalists; we are nationalists, but only as a part of a general program that wants a traditional society. That means rejecting modernity entirely, starting with the sacred cow (and mental crack for white people, apparently) of “equality.” If you want to celebrate Hitler, celebrate what he tried but could not do, which is abolish the idea of equality and with it, the State. We need nations, not nation-States. We want a traditional society because it works and everything else does not.

Hitler had his day, but he was more symbolic — resistance against modernity and racial erasure — than literal. To the (possibly inevitable) sadness of the Germans, they followed him literally and encountered a great defeat. This was not from their lack of prowess, but from the vast forces they faced, since illusion is always more popular than realism. And yet, we would be ultra-morons to make the same mistake twice.

To avoid making that mistake, we must revisit the core of modernity, individualism. Individualism makes people demand equality, so that all individuals are included, no matter what they have done in the past. But to an independent person, individualism is a crutch, a thing to be overcome. If you want to be more Hitler than Hitler, accept the nihilism of literal reality, and that you are a small part of a vast civilization, not a god-like consciousness to which civilization should be dedicated.

It is fascinating and lugubrious that we face the same challenges as we did during the First World War and the French Revolution. Nothing, really, has changed; we are still trying to advance the same dying ideas and they are failing as they always have. This Hitler Day, let us reject those ancient and moldy failures and move on to something more sustaining and cheerful!

An Economic Argument Against Equality

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

We know that there are practical arguments for the failure of equality on a biological level, namely that it eliminates striving for improvement and creates a downward pressure — averaging — instead. If we look at equality on an economic level, we see that this problem replicates itself in a different form.

Equality means that mediocrity is equal to superiority in terms of social value. This makes mediocrity more efficient because it requires more work and attention to achieve superior results. If the outcome is the same, choose the approach that requires the least amount of work; through this mechanism, the mediocre becomes superior to the superior, at least as far as the individual is concerned.

This economic efficiency explains the soft drinks, fast food, junk mass culture, mediocre appliances, inept bureaucrats, mentally lazy voters and other aspects of the blighted modern landscape: when no one is interested in quality, people do not lose jobs or income for being mediocre, and since that gives them more time for themselves, they become active apathists who deny reality.

At a mathematical level, far below the delayed consequences to biology and social order, equality prioritizes the efficiently bad. Whatever is easiest to do wins out over quality; quality, in fact, becomes an impediment, because it is an unreturned cost. Equality is a bias against quality.

With this thinking in mind, it makes sense to replace food with rehydrated soy product, and to serve people carbonated sugar water instead of real beverages. The simple, repetitive song becomes more important than the symphony. Easy-to-understand lies are more effective than complex, less dramatic truths.

Our civilization has undone itself with the idea of equality. However, through this economic analysis, we also see why individuals choose equality: they are guaranteed acceptance, inclusion and validity without having to prove themselves, which means that for them they achieve greater efficiency through mediocrity. Do the minimum, and reap the full reward.

Over time the efficiency of this approach breaks down because it reduces the value of social participation. A dying society where every person is a selfish promoter of mediocrity has little to offer, but once it was a thriving civilization, and then its carnies, snake oil salesman, sycophants, priests, neurotics, parasites and enemies joined together to leach out its value.

Much of human activity for the past several centuries has involved concealment of this simple logical fact. When there is no distinction for doing things the right way, you get less done the right way and more — across the board — done to a minimum standard. This naturally causes social order to unravel and makes people bitter, hateful and prone to take all they can and give nothing back.

As we come out of the centuries of spaced-out delusion, we can again face these simple but prevalent truths about equality. At that point, our only decision is whether we want to encourage mediocrity or superiority. There is no other option.

Socialism Fails Because All It Ever Leads To Is Death

Monday, April 10th, 2017

Leftists are never truly and properly atheist. They may reject the religions they see around them and may well recoil from Christianity in particular as the Nosferatu recoils in the face of a crucifix or a coruscating blast from the sun. However, they will bow their heads and proclaim their adoration of equality.

But the worship of equality is a false idol intended to suck in the gullible. We are all created equally and then are equivalent just one more time: when they chuck us in the dirt. Thus to sucvessfully seek equality is to bring forth The Grim Reaper and embrace the end of all goodness and health.

Equality is never, ever a good thing. It is at best a neutral — but for the absolute worst in our midst. People never advance to equality with those who do it better. The betters are only brutally stripped and then forced into a sham of equality with and those unfit to lick their very boots.

It never occurs in nature. The very laws of nature, set forth by God; will not tolerate such idolatrous profanity. Even Absolute Zero is now believed to be a non-existent mathematical ideal beset and confounded by physical contradiction. Equality can never be real. Only one thing can happen to you while trying for it. You die. Leftism kills you. It’s what Leftism ultimately does. It’s all Leftism ever ultimately does.

Detroit, Newark, Birmingham, Baltimore, Havana, Moscow, Pyongyang, Phnom Penh, and now Caracas. All of these places are burned-over charnel houses where the hopes of the multitudes burn on a pyre of ineluctible existentential despite and despair. Venezuela is the latest place to take up the flag of International Socialism from the grave where Pol-Pot dropped it and serve as the perfect exemplar of evil. No, you cannot haz brownies!

Venezuela this week arrested four bakers making illegal brownies and other pastries as President Nicolás Maduro’s socialist government threatens to take over bakeries in Caracas as part of a new “bread war”. Maduro has sent inspectors and soldiers into more than 700 bakeries around the capital this week to enforce a rule that 90% of wheat must be destined to loaves rather than more expensive pastries and cakes.

In 2001, Venezuela was the richest country per capita in South America. They verily floated on a lake of oil. They now have to ration what little gasoline that still remains on the market. They cannot feed their people. They cannot even power the tractors to plant next year’s crops. No, you cannot haz brownies without the flour to bake them!

Venezuela then foolishly believed that it had to choose between Socialism and death. No, it’s not “socialismo o muerte.” It’s socialismo y muerte. It has to be. That is the only place Socialism ever leads. Everyone under Socialism eventually starves equally. They die. It is your destiny under Leftism. It is an eternal quest for the zero. The Zero that these supposed atheists worship as devoutly as Ignatius of Loyola or The Buddha ever prayed.
