Furthest Right

Plato, Andrew Sullivan and Orlando


…tyranny is probably established out of no other regime than democracy. – Plato

Plato describes the joys of Democracy well in The Republic. Andrew (((Sullivan))) muses on what the great philosopher has to tell us about our current society.

  1. The very rich come under attack, as inequality becomes increasingly intolerable.

    Can anyone doubt that this has happened both on The Left and on The Right. George Soros wisely LBO’d both Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter so that the Leftist cattle would be herded and eventually stashed back into their veal fattening pens. The Right seems more pleasantly rogue with Donald Trump attempting to grow into the role of Optimate. With the left populists properly babysat and dominated by their Silicon Valley Overkings; the extent to which the Cathedral is threatened by resentment of the elite will be decided by one simple question. Whither/wither Right Wing Populism?

  2. Patriarchy is also dismantled…Family hierarchies are inverted…

    The end result of feminism is something that a lot of men really enjoy. They get widened sexual access and no real responsibility for the resulting offspring. For women on an intellectual, social and professional level of Carly Fiorina, feminism is a screaming buy. For those who struggle without structure and who get picked off by high time-preference, low moral fiber, sexually predatory men; this is what feminism does for them.

    The consequential impact of the “Hey Mister” society is that 41% of the children in Amerika are bastards. Plato predicted how this would work out as well. Sullivan continues his philosophy discussion below.

  3. “A father habituates himself to be like his child and fear his sons, and a son habituates himself to be like his father and to have no shame before or fear of his parents.” In classrooms, “as the teacher … is frightened of the pupils and fawns on them, so the students make light of their teachers.”

    YouTuber Tommy Sotomayor has mused on how this has worked out and chronicled it in all of its phantasmagoric detestability here, here, here, and here.

So you destroy the elite, you destroy the dad, you go [email protected] on what’s left of the family. This ripens your society for what? Well, at first, it’s Ollie, Ollie Oxen. Free! Free! Free! But as the consequences of freedumb pile up and we begin amusing ourselves to death; we begin to see the horror. How does one react to horror? Plato, Andrew Sullivan and Kevin Williamson all opine that you ultimately get the Father Führer. I think you’re lucky if that’s as bad as it gets.

You see we’ve posited a society that is supposed to take diverse parts and fuse them like a McDonald’s Chicken McNugget into some form of workable hybrid. E Pluribus Unum, I presume. But here’s what happens instead. You get lots of people that just can’t make this work. You trust them with more power and responsibility than they will ever be worthy of. They have more freedumb than they know how to handle. It leaves this Mook to wonder “E Pluribus WTF?”

They know of their personal failures. It eats at them. It frustrates them. They go get brainwashed into finding a scapegoat. They are given a mission be an evil enemy. They go boom!

The tyranny Andrew Sullivan soils his shorts over is just the mechanism. This, right here is how democracies all ultimately die.
