Anti-Fascist News on Radix:

… a who’s who of the “alt right,” which we prefer to identify as “alt fascist.” This means far right ideas that associate with counter-cultural and intellectual elements, including neo-paganism, radical environmentalism, and other more spiritually and intellectually inclined folks, while also bridging to former paleoconversatives and beltway types. They cheerfully lament about the “decline” of white civilization, the destructiveness implicit in immigration and queer identity, and about how skin color determines IQ

Nobody, ever, across the entire span of history, has believed that (if they could even make sense of it).

The Radix-crew aren’t XS-types, but productive criticism doesn’t begin with this kind of idiotic lying.

    There is no idea so stupid that someone won’t believe it.

    “There is no idea so stupid that someone won’t believe it.”

    Could that be said of “Neoreaction”, too?


    Nathan Cook Reply:

    In the subjunctive, yes. If “neoreaction” were a label for a theory as stupid as “melanin theory”, there would still be people stupid enough to believe it. If.

    The irony is that they are both confiirmations of each other.
    Neoreaction is just an overreaction, though, to another overreaction.
    ‘Reality’, or the ‘irreal’, is never caught up with such nonsense.

    Certainly, though more appropriate would be ideas that people believe are true, but just need more data to confirm.

    Lots of that going around everywhere right now, though.

    Despite the nonsense, the author makes a good point about the guys from TRS. How is Mike Enoch going to pull off doing a podcast at NPI without revealing his identity? I suppose he can wear a mask for the full twelve hours.

    I dunno about you guys, but I cheerfully lament about stuff all the time, myself.

    On the weekends, I like to mournfully celebrate about things, just to switch it up.

    You are obviously hair-splitting to prove yourself superior to the silly fascists.

    Well that piece was grating. It was one attack after another with no discussion of underlying principles. Reminds me of a similar piece from Ian Bremmer two days ago on Business Insider. Same rhetorical positioning. All moral indignation, no discussion of issues. Perhaps that is the new M.O. of the New World Order’s intellectual foot soldiers?


    Erebus Reply:

    Whoever Ian Bremmer is, he appears to be utterly incompetent. That article couldn’t possibly be less coherent or more poorly written. (“These five facts. ” None of them are facts; some aren’t even observations.) If Bremmer is supposed to be an “intellectual”, and if that article is meant to be taken seriously, even as a mainstream/lowbrow political editorial… it’s over, we’re fucked.

    Anyway, “skin color determines IQ” was good for a couple of laughs. Antifa types probably believe it, too, which makes it even funnier.

    There’s quite a lot of productive criticism at that place:

    “Spencer himself has repeatedly discussed the institutionalization of the radical left, pointing out that you cannot really be dissenting from the system if you are a “tenured faculty member” at a place like Harvard(2). This is fundamentally a true statement, and one that can be legitimately hurled at the radical left sphere. Radical Marxist and anarchist ideas have become commonplace in academia, but you are never going to see a national socialist or Mussolini revivalist getting tenure in a philosophy department.”

    “From here it is not a far step to say that the left-liberal paradigm is what actually drives the negative effects of the current order, and therefore the radical right holds the keys to subversion.”

    Bremmer is a big deal. Wired in to a long list of key New World Order/Cathedral entities. Pumps out a lot of stuff too.

    New world order as a phrase is far too strongly associated for me , with 4chan anti-semites, pontificating for a beta uprising, or one of those nut job truthers or total paranoid freaks such as David icke

    “With the release of his book The Biggest Secret in 1999, Icke added the final layer on top of the pyramid of conspiracy: Interdimensional shape-shifting lizard-people from a rift in the space-time continuum near the constellation Draco, often referred to as “reptilians” or “reptoids.” Partially ripping off Zecharia Sitchin, he claims these aliens are the Anunnaki and that they have interbred with humans throughout history. Much of the “evidence” of reptoids Icke’s worshipers put forth are pictures of world leaders with enlarged pupils or red eye — the everyday kind of red eye in which retinas illuminated by camera flashes. This supposedly signifies that they have momentarily lapsed in their shape-shifting.[8]
    Some people have taken offense to this, claiming that “shape-shifting lizard-people” is a code word for “Jews.”[9] Icke claims that he is not anti-Semitic and that when he says “shape-shifting lizard-people,” he really quite literally means lizards. Although he hangs around with some rather fringe right-wing nutcases, he balances it all out by being just as insane a believer in New Age mumbo-jumbo. He does believe the Protocols of the Elders of Zion were true, albeit supposedly not about Jews but (ironically given the accusation of anti-Semitism) a code word for lizard people. He also has been flirting with Holocaust denial,[10] but in Icke’s case it’s less likely a sign of anti-Semitism than yet another manifestation of all-round insanity”

    Courtesy of rationalwiki for the hilarious entry(its only use). Other than this the cathedral as denoted by moldbug is not a conspiracy(nor to be associated with) but a historical and contemporary evolution in the social structure, this is analogous to the hons honorum that ruled over the roman empire, and of course as you say Bremmer is very much part of that.


    Kgaard Reply:

    Well … I am actually moving in the opposite direction re the use of the term New World Order. I think it is an excellent descriptor. It captures perfectly what the elites are attempting to do. Whether it’s a conscious conspiracy is up for grabs. I suspect it’s borderline. Certainly we can look to the fundamental insight from critical theory, which is that everybody analyzes the world from a particular point of view that is shaped by who they are — with genetic heritage playing a huge role there — and deduce that certain people will tend to push very hard in certain directions.

    You remember the Journo-list scandal? That’s pretty close to an overt conspiracy to push a narrative, no?
