T-Shirt slogans (#4)

My Dark Enlightenment / horrorist T-shirt suggestion:

You don’t want to see this

(Prompted by Alrenous)

ADDED: Alrenous suggests (in the thread below) — Dark Enlightenment. You just don’t want to know.
‘Know’ is definitely superior from a technical point of view, but I’m still caught up in the quasi-cinematic drama of media sensationalism.

(… and tinkering with the initial offering, I’m wondering whether it’s worth the extra word to go to: You really don’t want to see this.)

    Extremely cliched, but: Dark Enlightenment. You just don’t want to know.

    Too demotic.

    The Dark Enlightenment — You Can’t Bear to Know or You Are Afraid to Know

    How is it demotic?

    And here I thought I was oversensitive to the stuff. (Oversensitivity is a virtue in the modern context, to counteract the effects of liberal immersion therapy.)

    Neoreaction: You can’t bear to see this.

    I like the ‘this’ construction, even though the referent is tortured. Extracted, it’s ‘can’t bear to see, in the sense of understanding, the things which I, the wearer of this pro-reactionary T-shirt, profess.’ I think liking that may prove that I’m weird.

    “Dark Enlightenment is man’s leaving his self-caused progressive immaturity. Progressive immaturity is the incapacity to use one’s intelligence without the guidance of The Cathedral. Such immaturity is self-caused if it is not caused by lack of intelligence, but by lack of determination and courage to use one’s intelligence without being guided by liberal political correctness. Sapere Aude! Have the courage to use your own intelligence against progressivism and The Cathedral is therefore the motto of the Dark Enlightenment…!”

    No way a chick would wear “You really don’t want to see this” across her breasts.

    Just ‘Dark Enlightenment’ then? Or VXXC’s ‘Be the next one to see’? 🙂

    No worries, I suppose, I only felt creeped out when you spelled out how creepy the smiley is!

    Dark Enlightenment – Ssshh! is actually my favourite, if only because it makes me think of Old Nick doing this: http://sovposters.ru//2010/2/10/56909rm_19_381.jpg except looking very mischievous. It’s corny, but it’s also genuinely funny and is just an appropriate gesture/expression (if Ssshh! is an expression at all).
    “Ssshh if you’re know what NR is – you don’t want to shout about it.”
    “Ssshh if you you’re having a hissy fit.”
    “Ssshh if you don’t know about us – good luck staying in the dark!” (or whatever). It’s smug (you’re a smug bunch, not that there’s anything necessarily wrong with that), it’s conspiracy-theorish, and it’s a tease as much as an order to shut up.

    I actually would have a problem with “Be the next one to see” on my breasts too – if I wore an NR/DE shirt, I’d want it to refer to NR/DE and not make people thinking about my body. It’s also kind of egalitarian. Not everyone deserves to see, you know 😉

    I wouldn’t mind T-shirts with various Moldbug quotes.

    “Professor Dawkins is not just a Christian atheist. He is a Protestant atheist. And he is not just a Protestant atheist. He is a Calvinist atheist. And he is not just a Calvinist atheist. He is an Anglo-Calvinist atheist.”

    I’d wear a black Neoreaction shirt with “The Old Ones were, the Old Ones are, and the Old Ones shall be again” and a smiley Cthulhu wearing a crown on it.

    Re: “You don’t want to see this” vs “You really don’t want to see this”. You always want to choose the message with stronger emotion tied to it whenever that message is concise enough. That is to say, go with “really don’t want to see this” in the choice between these two. However, when you can say nearly the same thing in fewer words which are even more powerful, why not do that instead?

    Try these on for size….

    “The Dark Enlightenment:Be Afraid”

    “The Dark Enlightenment: Look Away (if you can)”

    “Neoreaction:Kills Equality Dead”

    “Neoreaction:Kills Diversity Dead”

    “Yes we Kant”
