There’s an intellectual Sistine Chapel calling out for your support. The next Pope Leo X has to be out there somewhere, eager to patronize the hungry culture of our age. Here’s the chance. (I’ve “dedicated posts to far sillier things” apparently.)

(OK, the Sistine Chapel ceiling was patronized by Julius II, but let’s try not to be pedantic — Leo X had cooler mirror-shades.)

    Thanks for the plug. I wouldn’t call the book I’m writing an “intellectual Sistine Chapel,” but I do think it comes close. It’s meant to be an accessible exposition of neoreactionary social science, and I think it will be considered important by more than neoreactionaries.

    A draft of the first chapter can be read here

    How far along are you on it?


    Bryce Laliberte Reply:

    4 chapters finished, working on the 5th. Have 15 chapters total planned. Scintillating topics such as The Principles of Social Norm Selection and A Theory of the Left-Right Continuum.

    If my Patreon were totally successful, I might contemplate an addendum which analyzes contemporary social phenomena.

    I wouldn’t call anything Bryce writes ‘accessible,’ but it is brilliant and deeply rewarding. I pledged.


    Bryce Laliberte Reply:

    This book is intended to be much more accessible than my more esoteric fare. Someone completely unacquainted with neoreaction or without much background knowledge in social theory should find it illuminating. It is the kind of book which answers the questions one probably felt but could never articulate.

    Also, thank you for your pledge.

    /duck/ is dead

    Unless there’s a vastly improved garbage disposal mechanism (and there’s no sign of that), my prognosis is bleak.

    Yes. /ducksoup/don’t_bother.

    When you have a Father you’re the richest Heir on earth.

    When you don’t no money or success will substitute, or last.

    Remember that when you face the Fatherhood or Cuck choice.

    Gritting your teeth through thick and thin and the hard times is the best, most profitable, safest and most rewarding course.

    Let’s assume Duck is in fact a master strategist.

    I.e. the effects are the intended effects.

    1st: /duck/ is no longer Duck’s responsibility.
    2nd: Denizens of /duck/ revealed for what they are

    Duckizens are shown to be dedicated enough to sustain their own boards. Simultaneously, they can’t rely on the Duck anymore. From the other direction, what they sustain will 100% be them, not the Duck.
    It also puts a clean line between fullchan NRx and twitter NRx.

    Total effect: simply glancing at fullchan will reveal any differences between it and twitter NRx, making assaying very easy.

    Why would Duck want to reveal the true nature of /duck/? By the above assumption, that’s why it was done.


    SanguineEmpiricist Reply:

    I used to think this is important but now I think that most of the pissed off people on NRx twitter & *chan boards are better off sinking their life into it so we don’t have to spend time with them.

    I believe in stuff like freedom of association but to think that entails full on non-stop hatred 24/7 is entirely another matter.

    To drown out some of the worst stuff I just followed as many weather channels I could on twitter…

    Will certainly consider pledge when other matters settled Sir.

    But I won’t wait for winning lottery ticket, which I don’t buy anyway.

    Good Fortune Mr. Laliberte.

    Plus, Leo X had a better son. Or did Julius II even have one? Too pious maybe.

    Pledged. The book seems intriguing, and what Bryce is doing with Social Matter and the Hestia Society alone is already worthy of my support.
    …I wish I had more time to devote to NRx. As I do not, I hope this’ll serve as an adequate proxy for now.

    (And I’ve spent a lot of money on far sillier — indeed, shamefully frivolous — things this week which I need to atone for. Can’t think of a better way.)


    Bryce Laliberte Reply:

    Thank you for your pledge Erebus. Also thank you for your kind words about Social Matter and the Hestia Society. Your support of my work is greatly appreciated.
