On to 2014

If you’re reading this, you’ve strayed into my appreciation zone.

Massive thanks to everybody who has made the last year such a hotbed of occurrence. 2013 was truly extraordinary — I’ve never known a New Year birthed among such overflowing gratitude. If 2014 doesn’t shake the earth, we’ll be answerable to something. The boost-stage that set the trajectory was certainly working just fine …

I won’t make a serious attempt to express my delight in the last year’s visitor commentary here, because rapturous sobbing is unbecoming. It’s been simply dazzling, and everyone knows it has made this place. Whatever it is that leads people to think here, rather than to signal, I can only hope it continues.

I’m allowing myself up to (roughly) the Chinese New Year for some substantive 2014 prognoses.

May 2014 carry you beyond limits you never expected to traverse.

So I asked the Zhouyi what it thought about the way things were going here, and it answered: 778798. (Hexagram 58 going to hexagram 54.) Eloquent (even to the point of profound ominousness) as always. It certainly provides plenty to chew over for anybody who’s interested.

    I have nothing to add other than to signal my support and gratitude to the many NR writers who have made this Thought Explosion possible.

    I have no idea what the future holds for the Darkening Web, in the best possible sense.

    Keep on fighting the good fight NL.

    The growth of 2014, the attacks of 2014, and the conflicts of 2015 and beyond are baked into the cake at this point, so we might as all get strapped in for the ride.

    For me, these are minor fears. The more fundamental fear is what will occur when the Reactionaries win. And we will win in the end. Reality can only be held at bay for so long, and though the ruin in the system is vast, it is not infinite.

    At some point, we will not only have the ability to exit to the ultimate “white flight” in space, but we will be called upon for the answers derived from neoreactionary thinking. We have only the outlines of those answers now, but we face the challenge of years of hashing out a future that works. A future that can preserve the best of civilization and cope with the “diversity” of particularity, and create a universal order in which all can prosper within the constraints of their cultural predilections and boundaries.

    It is a daunting task, but there is much hope in it. We may be able to hold back the barbarians at the gate, and prevent ultimate collapse. It it is a bitter and biting brew, but it tastes like Dark Enlightenment(TM). 🙂

    Well now the NYT says Snowden should be given amnesty. Editorial Board OP-ED.

    They too have great hopes for 2014. 2014 is going to be a big year for the Progs, which means a big year for DEC.

    If it wasn’t obvious before that Snowden was a chess game of Snowden rogue Blue Knight against the Red Board [NSA may now be placed back in Red Column] it’s obvious now. There were of course several Rebumblekin whistle blowers under Bush, they just didn’t betray their country. Old fashioned and all that…also not quite photgenically metrosexual as Snowden is…

    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/02/opinion/edward-snowden-whistle-blower.html?hp&rref=opinion&_r=1&

    I am still curious as to why. And what this means about where NSA is…it is after all under DoD but a bit nerdy to consider Red. I wonder if this is a move to check Red and what it all means.

    Never quite knew how to interpret 54, but always thought it was particularly ominous and suggestive of too much fixity and stagnation, even as there is anastasis before it. (Although I might just mistake for those the need for patience and caution. I was given 64 as my answer. Now not to drown the little fox).

    Happy new year, Old Nick.

    happy new year.

    may your thoughts continue to machinically self accrete along vectors of escape in this new year:

    @ Admin,

    Look here…now the unraveling of the USSR was done in our lifetimes and thought impossible. Let us consider when your extremely elaborate machinery is operating at high equilibrium in defiance of reality and on borrowed money, you are vulnerable. Really our task is no more daunting [less so] than that Reagan undertook.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    “Reagan, nearly alone, truly believed in 1981 that the
    Soviet system was vulnerable … right then.- Gates 96.

    Reagan’s first National Security Adviser, Richard
    Allen, wrote: “[Reagan] never believed as did many
    Western observers—including alleged experts—that
    the Soviet economy had the capacity to extract from its
    citizens limitless sacrifice for the sake of maintaining
    invincible military power.”
    (ALLEN , 1996, P.63)

    THE LONG-TERM PLAN THAT EVOLVED WAS TO :

    • SUPPORT INTERNAL DISRUPTIONS WITH A SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON POLAND
    • PROMOTE FREEDOM.
    • DRY UP SOURCES OF SOVIET HARD CURRENCY.
    • OVERLOAD THE SOVIET ECONOMY WITH
    A TECHNOLOGY – BASED ARMS RACE.
    • STOP THE FLOW OF WESTERN TECHNOLOGY.
    • RAISE THE COST OF THE WARS THE USSR WAS SUPPORTING
    • DEMORALIZE THE SOVIETS AND GENERATE PRESSURE FOR CHANGE

    If I never mentioned it Admin, I’m a serial plagiarist.
    ======================================
    REAGAN DID…
    +++++++
    • SUPPORT INTERNAL DISRUPTIONS WITH A SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON POLAND
    • PROMOTE FREEDOM.
    • DRY UP SOURCES OF SOVIET HARD CURRENCY.
    • OVERLOAD THE SOVIET ECONOMY WITH
    A TECHNOLOGY – BASED ARMS RACE.
    • STOP THE FLOW OF WESTERN TECHNOLOGY.
    • RAISE THE COST OF THE WARS THE USSR WAS SUPPORTING
    • DEMORALIZE THE SOVIETS AND GENERATE PRESSURE FOR CHANGE
    ========================================
    DEC SHOULD…
    ++++++++
    • SUPPORT INTERNAL DISRUPTIONS WITH A SPECIAL EMPHASIS = on HBD and Darwin not stopping at neck. Or Crime. Or both.

    • PROMOTE FREEDOM. = Promote Intellectual Freedom of Speech and discussion, as opposed to PC shutdown.
    which just about everyone hates.

    • DRY UP SOURCES OF SOVIET HARD CURRENCY. = Pry Tech money from the smart away from Progs. It may want to be proposed as a Hedging strategy. The bankrupt and delusional can’t last forever.

    • OVERLOAD THE SOVIET ECONOMY WITH A TECHNOLOGY – BASED ARMS RACE. = Overload their eschatology with overwhelmingly supported Reality.

    • STOP THE FLOW OF WESTERN TECHNOLOGY.= Pry Tech and Geeks from the Progs, free and subtle dissemination of The Red Pill or Pills. We have several brands of Red Pill, pick whatever subject nags you Neo.

    • RAISE THE COST OF THE WARS THE USSR WAS SUPPORTING = See Handle’s avenge me scheme. It always needs to be a proposition with unknown but certain risk to attack one of us.

    • DEMORALIZE THE SOVIETS AND GENERATE PRESSURE FOR CHANGE = No more turning Cur, look them in the eye and find ground to stand and say NO.
    **GENERATE PRESSURE FOR CHANGE = any version of NO.

    For instance the much maligned Hoi Polloi Americanus stopped them cold with MOLON LABE. And purchases.

    ^^Speaking of which…and only quietly if asked…all of us who can avail ourselves of Second Amendment Liberties need to be able to answer honestly…and only if asked…Yes. I have availed myself of my inherited Liberty. Just a quiet yes if asked. You see … there’s that Human Nature thing … Game. Women aren’t the only Game, Men have their own.

    With all that why not get an ACOG?

    The AR was a gift from my father. Not sure why he chose that scope, it’s actually for shotguns. I was hitting targets with it at 250 yards, would eventually like to either upgrade or maybe get a different one so I can hit at 1,000 yards.
