    The usual way, would be for Britain to start ‘trading’, invading, & colonising again.

    John Hannon Reply:

    More likely to be invaded and colonized itself now.

    If you’re talking about other ‘human’ nation-states & collectives, that’s highly unlikely.

    {AK}: Glad you like it! If you want more than my natural charitability produces here, you’ll have to pay for it. Don’t be greedy!

    Wait actually, I changed my mind

    If I wanted to laugh my ass off at postmodernist claptrap, I would be reading /r/philosophy

    [wu-wei]: “Wait actually, I changed my mind.
    If I wanted to laugh my ass off at postmodernist claptrap, I would be reading /r/philosophy”

    {AK}: Your assumption that the solicitation of mirth is neatly structured according to a binary wherein the particular subject is strictly other than “postmodernist claptrap”, is an ideological imaginary that is shaken to its very foundations by the claim of “reading /r/philosophy””, an exemplary technotheoretic claim, given the nature of the mediation that the subject overlooks. As a corollary, the need for the release of mirth, the resorting to the economics of risibility, follows the classic schema of anal anxiety evoked by capitalistic entrainment & fiscal loss. This, of course, is confirmed by the suggested metonymic oscillation, ‘fiscal’/’fecal’, an irresolvable aporia necessarily leading to anxiety.
    Requiring an audience, of fellow sufferers, of the capitalistic entrainment they are unable, or unwilling, to overcome; &, moreover, audience ‘applause’, lending the significance of social ritual; postmodernist critique can only be seen as deflationary with regard to such a communal & capitalist desire. It ‘traps’ the ‘claps’; avoiding the ritual of social confirmation; leaving only the lone madman of ‘fiscal’/’fecal’ anxiety in his technological cave; & a strange, uncontrollable laughter, that he cannot understand, but which he directs at postmodernist critique, in a gesture of dim acknowledgement towards his second lack of understanding; a secondary criticality, explanatory of the first hilarity.

    {AK}: It was meant to be ‘fun’, but emerged as possibly ‘serious’. I guess, if one steps beyond Modernist habits, even ‘fun’ has something to say, to all of us?

    What exactly does Neoreaction contribute to this?

    The Left leads to the Left, and the Right… also leads to the Left. Cannot go back; must go forward. Then blow a hole in the ceiling and escape the labyrinth, seeds ejected in every direction.

    {AK}: Have you thought of getting a girlfriend? lol

    wu-wei Reply:

    Exit is actually pretty Freudian, when you think about it.

    I mean, what do you think the obsession with cryptographic weapon locks is supposed to symbolize, anyway?

    I mean, what do you think the obsession with cryptographic weapon locks is supposed to symbolize, anyway?”

    {AK}: I guess you’re right, wu-wei. Is cryptography, generally, the new chastity? Or cryptic weaponry, the security of disseminated destruction, another castration anxiety, as well as observation of safety?

    Oh, the horror!

    Artxell Knaphni Reply:

    Yes, that’s Neoreaction’s biggest contribution, the inordinate inflation & projection, of a Lovecraftian fear of the Other.

    [Reply]

    holipopiloh Reply:

    So Neoreaction made you fear Britain? I doubt that. Fear of the West is older than most of us.

    Artxell Knaphni Reply:

    Lovecraft was a virulent racist, hence the “Lovecraftian fear of the Other”.
    And yes, what the Occident fears, is precisely the horror that it exemplifies & projects.
    Look at the history, the barbarity always comes from the West.
    Ghengis Khan is the only exception to that.

    You’ve obviously been listening in class. The world was one giant Kumbaya singalong until the white man turned up and wrecked everything.

    holipopiloh Reply:

    Oh, definitely. The most arduously civilising force in history is the epitome of “barbarity”.

    I’m surprised it has not occurred to you that spreading such imbecilic lies in these grottos is nothing if not ticklishly inspiring for the inhabitants. The fact that you quite possibly believe your own ahistorical nonsense is all for the better.

    {AK}: It’s strange that barbarians find civility so arduous. So arduous, in fact, that it turns into a fetishised distortion, where the ardor itself becomes identified with the very ‘civilisation’ which the barbarian feels alienated from, & which it thus objectifies as fetish.
    It’s good that you feel inspired, perhaps it might tickle you into actually thinking.
    When you learn to think, you might then be able to actually link thoughts together & actually understand some history. Until then you can’t help but be guilty of what you project onto others.

    holipopiloh Reply:

    You shouldn’t talk about understanding that which you, perhaps as an act of will, know nothing about. But like I said, we are all barbarians here and it’s ticklish, so do go on. After all, a fool that can learn to believe a lie, can learn to believe anything.

    An esteemed thing, to have no head; nothing to fall from your neck.
    An example to us all.

    {AK}: holipopiloh, until you are capable of demonstrating any coherency of thought at all, your injunctions can only be the expression of your considerable intellectual limitations. It’s good of you to share your perspective on belief, but such preoccupations, with ‘belief’, usually seem to be the province of dogmatic fundamentalists, & their tendencies toward the simplicity of binarised polarisation, as explained in SUMMARY OF AN ENCOUNTER WITH THE ANAGRAMMATIC ANDROID OF ATROCIOUS INFERIORITIES II

    Citing membership of a community, , holipopiloh, doesn’t compensate for your intellectual inferiority, that is easy to estimate.

    holipopiloh Reply:

    As expected, Artxell:

    –> the point –>

    *your head*

    Artxell Knaphni Reply:

    [holipopiloh]: “As expected, Artxell:
    –> the point –>
    *your head* ”

    {AK}: No, holipopiloh, there wasn’t just one point, there was a sequence of points.

    There are many reasons to fear, we’re all aware of that. But that isn’t an excuse to be stupid. If you wish to be constrained by fear, & the roles it distributes, all because your head can’t cope with actual thinking, with anything beyond the simplicity of binarised polarisation; you have to realise, in addition, that we’re not all like that, & we’re not interested in bad thinking that doesn’t work.

    That’s why the ‘right’ seeks ‘stability’ and ‘order’ whereas the left seeks upheaval and revolution


    France seems stuck in a permanent recession. Italy and Spain have still not reached the output levels that they had before the 2008 financial crisis. It’s only because of quantitative easing and negative interest rates that the eurozone hasn’t collapsed like a house of cards.

    Europe has been in perpetual recession it seems since 2007. America has been a much better place to invest

  • Brett Stevens Says:

    The point of Leftism is to force us all to be in a civilization together so that we can subsidize the parasites.

    If anyone escapes having to pay the parasite tax, everyone else will, too.

    That will leave a large portion of parasites destined to become some other type of civilization. Third-world, specifically, regardless of ethnic background.

    As we found out in the American South, however, the parasites will strike back — and they have the numbers and nothing better to do, so they are fanatical. Like Mongols or Soviets.

    [Reply]

    wu-wei Reply:

    Have to disagree. Leftism, broadly abstracted, is the result of conflicting power centers. There is no ‘point’ or ‘purpose’; the patterns it produces are purely epiphenomenal.

    And at which point did the South strike back, and win? Is this referring to Nixon’s silent majority? If so, I don’t think that particular rebellion has produced productive results in the long run, given the current state of society and mainstream political discourse…

    [Reply]

    Brett Stevens Reply:

    I disagree. Leftism is parasitism created out of human fear of insufficiency.

    Also, you may note that above I said that the parasites strike back — not the South.

    [Reply]

    wu-wei Reply:

    My mistake – the parasites you were referring to were black Americans, obviously. That went over my head.

    Still, abolition was nothing without the crazy insane white religious zealot elites supporting it; the civil rights movement was nothing without the white-WASP-and-jewish-run foundations; BLM is nothing without Soros and crew. These movements were deliberately created to rise in power and status their respective sponsors; nothing more or less. “Cultural Marxism”, broadly defined, is the result of these forces, not the cause.

    wu-wei Reply:

    Let me rephrase: leftism is parasites being used as tools by elites vying for power. Without the elites supporting them, parasites are nothing, have no power unto themselves.

    {AK}: “Kumbaya” is precisely what they would not have been singing, seeing as that word is an expression of African-American spirituality beseeching God for deliverance from the suffering brought by the aforesaid “white man”.

    Like you, I lack the mental power for irony, and so I am not able to dream up any peaceful activities to contrast with “a Hobbesian slaughterhouse with a life expectancy of about 30,” so I’ll just utilize the sub-80 IQ of noted spiritualist Muhammed Ali: “Thank God my granddaddy got on that boat.”

    M.Ali clearly suffers from a severe case of false consciousness. Kek.

    Cryptogenic Reply:

    I wonder how much “spirituality” you voluntarily segregate yourself from? Like, as much as possible?

    [Reply]

    Artxell Knaphni Reply:

    There was no ‘segregation’.
    Just pointed out that “Kumbaya” was contingent on ‘white’ intervention.
    The context of African-American spirituality in which the word originates is Christian, too, not Voodoo.

    [Reply]

    Cryptogenic Reply:

    Yes, I got your original literal-minded tone deafness to a common colloquialism. Thank you.

    Let’s see the demographics of your zip code and judge from that whether or not you are segregating yourself.

    Is it sinking in now?

    Cryptogenic Reply:

    Do you live in San Francisco, a city that cut its tiny black population in half since the 1970’s? I find it a little strange that you prefer white supremacy to other, more spiritual arrangements.

    {AK}: ‘Hans Groiner’ is ‘Austrian’, but he’s a ‘fictional character’, played by an American jazz musician. It’s a satire. I haven’t seen the sketch you posted, before, I don’t watch television.
