The Alt-Right is Dead

It might stagger on for a bit longer, but it has nothing left to do. Annoying the (impending) Trump Regime at this point would be pointless, so that prospect isn’t any source of leverage. The 1488 nut cases, due to their marriage of convenience with the legacy media, have the ability to define it in the public mind, so those supporters without a Nazi-fetish will gradually drift away. It’s done.

Fascism isn’t cool, and Anglosphere cultures will never find it so. In Continental Europe it’s different, but that’s a whole other topic. We’re not them, which is one of the crucial things the Alt-Right ultras won’t ever get. We’re Atlanteans. There’s expanded space for a right-populist American nationalist movement, but it won’t call itself the Alt-Right, and if it’s remotely sensible it will be pre-emptively immunized against ruinous European ideas. It will probably be far more Tea-Party flavored, though a lot tougher. (This blog will still find its populism unappetizing.)

That’s the XS prediction. (RamZPaul, who liked the Alt-Right much more than I did, agrees with the central point.)

Jim has a very different take. (As does Amerika.)

Here‘s someone who’s building something more solid.

    How so… why do you think Trump won, and not Ron Paul? And, how do you explain Lord Keynes then? At this point anglos have caused more harm to the world at large than Hitler *and* Stalin combined (not to mention the fact that anglos basically propped up ol’ uncle Joe, and gifted him with half’o’Europe). It’s not the Eternal Jew, but the Eternal Anglo that we should be wary of. He spreads Communism when he claims to be fighting it, and fascism while calling himself a liberal.

    You reinforce my point. The Alt-Right has at its core an alien, Anglophobic ideology. The Anglosphere will therefore — of course — never subscribe to it, except as a transient punk gesture. Those who do subscribe to it are another, and ultimately an enemy people. It will do well in Europe, I expect.

    Michael Rothblatt Reply:

    But my (actually Molbug’s Communism is as American as apple pie.) point was that anglos have spread more fascism and Communism around the world than all the other nations combined. Remember, it was they that built up the present Social Democratic global consensus and its institutions. If any European nation even attempted to consistently apply not some arch-reactionary ideology, but simple Classical Liberalism, the greatest obstacle would not be the local Volk, but rather good ol’ US of A, which would jump them by all sides.

    And yet Moldbug is forced to concede that the Anglosphere has been the sole civilizational redoubt for classical liberalism. To reverse his meme-plague / immunity analogy, the Anglophone character of the Cathedral stems from the fact that it reacts against (or compensates for) a tendency to liberty that is found nowhere else.

    Michael Rothblatt Reply:

    And yet the bearers of the torch of Classical Liberalism in the anglophone world were all, wait for it… Jews and continental-European immigrants. And to boot, they were all students of continental economic traditions, and not of anglo economics.

    admin Reply:

    “Jews” (seems hard to contest, if you’re talking about 20th century libertarian tendencies) “and continental-European immigrants” — any easily-accessible support for this?

    Michael Rothblatt Reply:

    Well I am certainly talking 20th century. Before the Libertarian resurgence, Classical Liberalism in the Anglosphere was as dead as Traditional Conservatism. It used to be that there were something about six whole Classical Liberals in all of the US. HHH and von Hayek, for example. On the other hand Ayn Rand and von Mises fit both categories.

    I respect Cody a lot, a true legend, but I’ve not seen printed guns gain a huge amount of traction. Like Ulbricht, it seems to me that the Anglo-cypherpunk movement is primarily about ensuring a technically-adept set of people can carve out exits that guarantee a higher degree of freedom *within* the wider strictures of the state. Like Ulbricht or Zimeermann (PGP) the noble aim becomes the occasional salvo against the statists, but no wider project (nor is one desirable to them). There is a future there, indeed, the deep history of our internet times has a major place for them, but it’s not exactly a ‘wide’ future. That wide future will, I think, play out as you suspect, but with the alt righters doing what the tea party did, becoming more establishment with time. I mean we have to keep in mind…Bannon.

    That the Cathedrals incredibly obvious Spencer play has already drawn blood does not bode well for the Alt-Right as a lasting coalition. I suspect the “New Right” (awful name) is probably going to be the standard-bearer for Right Wing populism and Trump support in the near-term. There is a world of difference between advocating a white ethno-state and being anti-illegal immigration, support for the latter position is far more broad.

    However, for people who’ve hopped off the populism train, I think the more significant story is the Cathedral breakdown. The Alt-Right won’t get to enjoy the final victory, but it had its uses.

    If blood bothers you stay out of politics for the rest of our lifespan.

    That wasn’t blood. It’s media shitstorming during a period of Presidential Transition.

    Tempest in Teapots. Do you think Joe Public listens? They’re lying.

    At present the media is lying even when truthful. He’s a Nazi. So what? Amerika is onto something with that argument.

    I don’t care about Spencer – or the Alt-Right. I care about winning. We won.
    The Alt-Right kept social media SJW’s from drowning Trump under bullshit and they did it by playing to win and being very nasty. The Left being pussies caved.

    These aren’t ideas: they’re people. Ideas and speech can be used to shout down your enemies. That’s it. That’s all that happened – we shouted back and louder.

    In any case Admin all of this is premature. Including the casualty list you publish above.
    It’s like this is you guys first election. There have been so many death knells sounded in the past it’s like calling someone racist. They’re dead when they’re dead.

    The Clinton’s are only dead because they’re actually dying of old age and whatever else ails them.

    Nothing is settled. We gained tactical position and perhaps by legitimacy strategic advantage. That’s all and it’s temporary.

    Oh and the sovereign debt bomb ticks away…

    The fissure in right wing populism, between the “stop calling us all racists, we’re not all racists!” and the “we are racists and you should be too” sides, is easily exploitable. Spencer is just the first strike and its already set people on the right against one another. This is all I mean by “drawn blood”. This particular coalition of rightists will not survive past the Donald.

    But I do agree, in an election what matters is getting elected and not having the right ideas. If the right growing a spine is a permanent knew development, along with the collapse of trust in the media+collapse in prestige/economic value of university propaganda mills, then we have reason to be optimistic.

    This victory does not signal that we’ve broken the spell of leftist taboos. It suggests such a thing is possible, probably faster than people expected.

    All of the things in the casualty list are at least currently bleeding. They may not all die, and even then, never turn your back on the body.

    I think you overestimate America as Anglo. I apologize for being rude in advance, but I sometimes wonder at your understanding of the micro in American culture. Yes puritans, yes Anglo-centric empire. But there’s a rich, deep vein of the anti-Anglo (clue: we like guns). Yes, they nearly finished us off during Civil War I & Reconstruction, but the WASP foundation is dead with just the carcass carrying on. As things fall apart I expect elements of the zombie carcass(SWPLs) & the pagan remnants (Rednecks) will find some common ground. For the past decade or so, White Americans have been abandoning the NE (NY, CT, NJ in particular) and decamping to NC, SC, FL. Yes, they bring their fucked up ideology with them but Appalachia & the South tend to moderate their puritanism – further racial polarization seems likely.

    Last week, the DNC more or less decided, via choosing Keith Ellison as its head, to purge more Whites. Who suggested the Democrats would eventually become the party of non-Whites (Sailor?) That’s happening. Whites are becoming reintroduced & acclimated to White Identity. No, 1488 will never be acceptable, but explicit White identity as “Western” – yes, that’s happening.

    Maybe I don’t fully understand your definition of alt-right. My experience is that it is NOT entirely married to or explicit in its fascism. Yes, fascism is an element but its moderated by the lack of defined, distilled identity. We’re not German or French or English. We’re vaguely European, Western, White. I’m suggesting moderate fascism. lol. Ugh. I don’t think a purity spiral is inevitable. We’re too diverse. hehehe.

    Shitposting race & gender hate facts, trolling media, academics & politicos will commence immediately (it never stopped). It’s obvious to all, I think, the next step will be the dreaded “right wing activism” which will use a Milo template: mockery, disruption, non-violence in “safe spaces”. Explicit pro-White fliers & posters have shown up on college campuses. Troll, troll, troll until you make their heads explode.

    Whether it’s called alt-right or something else the “movement” will soldier on because it’s reality based (the race & gender realism aspect). No, 1488 isn’t reality based, but burning off the fantasy aspects – the LARP’ers – seems healthy to me.

    Its not that there isn’t a distinctive, non-Puritan culture in America, its that that culture has spent its entire history losing. Can the new Cavaliers finally stick it to the Puritans at what is the Puritans own game? Would it be a good thing if they did? I suppose we’ll see.

    Realism historically isn’t an advantage in a battle between populisms, if it were the Progs would never have done as much damage as they have. However, with the advent of the internet perhaps the tide can actually be turned, and the flagrant denial of reality that is core to the left might represent a fatal weakness. If this is true, right wing populists could potentially troll their way to victory as you describe.

    Progressivism doesn’t give a fuck that its WASP base is collapsing. As an ideology it doesnt concern itself with biological inheritance the way others do, its okayness with importing a new people to carry it forward is one of its most striking features. By the time it becomes apparent the Third Worlders arent quite as good hosts as its old ones were, its too late. Build the wall. You’ll still need to find your way to a political structure that doesnt explode/degenerate, which I’m not convinced a populist movement can ever do, but you’d have a chance

    Seth Largo Reply:

    There’s some definitional quibbling that needs to go on re: puritans, non-puritans, Anglosphere, non-Anglosphere, etc . . . But non-puritan culture has certainly not spent its entire history losing. It’s simply in a constant power struggle with the puritan culture. It’s hard to untangle the problem with all these weighted terms, though, so why don’t we use the terms provided by admin:

    America is the problem that the United States was designed to solve.

    Perhaps unlike admin, I don’t particularly care whether we align America with Anglos, Cavaliers, or with renegade continental Jews. What’s important is that there is in fact a liberty vector always attempting to escape from a command and control vector aimed in the opposite direction of liberty. I tend to agree with admin’s order of causation, that the command and control vector emerged in time as a puritanical gag response to the sad failures that liberty leaves in its wake, but in any case, you can’t deny that the liberty vector—America—had and continues to have successes despite the best efforts of the United States.

    Case in point: Yesterday, Robert Reich spouted some bullshit about how California is Trumpland’s nemesis. CA has the highest GDP in the country, is continually growing its wealth, yet has the most liberal tax-and-spend-on-welfare policies in the nation. Reich’s conclusion was that command and control is clearly the way to go.

    But of course California’s progressive fiscal and social policies are made possible in large part by the successes of Hollywood and the Valleys Silicon and Silicone, the latter two of which continue to be notoriously unregulated, the first of which was very unregulated until recently (which is why Hollywood has begun to move elsewhere). Hollywood in its golden age, circa 1920s-1950s—-that is, when Hollywood amassed all the capital upon which it is currently propped—was an unfettered capitalist paradise. And CA was solidly Republican from the 1950s through the 1990s, when the progressive command-and-control vector finally caught up and began to do its inverse work. It’s only a matter of time before CA capital escapes and leaves L.A. looking like Detroit.

    So even in California, we see the power struggle between liberty (capital) and progressive control in full swing.

    As with much of Progressivism, their accusations of ‘reactionary’ are largely projection. They have no identity except in what they’re a reaction against. This is why they always need the next big enemy. They’re the borderline personality of politics, all facade and no inside – all external negative-sum motivation, no internal or positive-sum motivation.

    The problem with the alt-right is its Progressivism on Opposite Day. So it’s a reaction to a reaction.

    Contrast NRx, which has at least one constructive value: civilization. Tech-comm naturally also celebrates technology and commerce, while theonomic celebrates religion, virtue, and spirituality. (Ironically Land is mildly eth-nat, in that he celebrates Anglo-Saxons, rather than the virtues that Anglo-Saxons symbolize for him.) Ironically neo-reaction is not reactionary at all compared to Progressivism. (Or perhaps not even slightly ironic, considering it’s Moldbug we’re talking here. Although the official Enlightenment was similarly an endarkenment, and the Dark Enlightenment is the beginning of the real thing.)

    Progressives and converse-Progressives seem to be able to celebrate victory, but even that’s less empty than reality. They celebrate only their opponents’ defeat.
    E.g. as soon as gays stop being a useful club with which to beat people, they stop being celebrated. It’s the beating they celebrate. The new hot club is trans*.

    Fascism is out of favour but actually, as per your earlier non-blog article, fascism obtains everywhere. (Particularly the thing about nobody batting at eye at nationalizing industries.) I think I know what you mean but I’d like you to pick your words more carefully. It helps one think clearly. (Fash isn’t cool, rather than fasc. The ‘fa’ in antifa, rather than Fascism.)

    A post on bow White Nationalism is silly:

    http://mpcdot.com/forums/topic/9067-nationalism-vs-white-nationalism/page__st__420

    >Let me try to put it another way, to get back to the root. White nationalism has already been tried in America, and it has already failed. White nationalists are absolutely correct when they say the Founders, especially the most liberal among them, would largely be considered white nationalists today. But what they don’t get is that’s why America failed.

    >The United States of America was beset by ethnic conflict from its founding, and this conflict only became more intense as more and more immigrants came here from Europe. Immigration was used as a demographic weapon against American voters beginning in the 1780s. It blew up into a full-on shooting war in 1865. It was never really resolved, not even after Woodrow Wilson stamped out latent German identity by force during WW1. The white immigrants from Europe were so much trouble in the early 20th century that Coolidge had to shut off the floodgates.

    >You can ignore the problems caused by Chinese immigrants in the 19th century and the still-unresolved problems of our ex-slave population and just focus on whites, and if you look at what has actually happened, it is impossible to conclude that white America ever was a “nation.” We’re in a situation where one group of whites is literally using mass immigration as a biological weapon to annihilate rival ethnic groups they unwillingly share a jurisdiction with.

    >Stop insisting we all can and should be a nation because we’re white. We can’t. It’s never going to happen. We’ve tried several times, and we just end up at each other’s throats. It’s so bad that one side has decided it would rather the whole land mass be repopulated by the Middle East than have to live in a world where the other side exists.

    >On top of that, white nationalism implicitly accepts that our existing state of atomization is normal and even healthy, making it sound like it’s basically Globalism Minus Darkies. No, that’s not normal or healthy. I used to make fun of leftists for whining about “consumerism” for years, and while I still do make fun of them, come on, the fact that there are people who identify the “community” they belong to based on which children’s shows they obsess over shows there is something profoundly sick about our existence. Fucking Star Wars? That’s who you are? Why can’t you just be an Iowan? Oh right, because you were born in Florida, grew up in Michigan, went to college in Kansas, and landed a job in Des Moines. You’re not from anywhere. That’s why you can think “your people” are a bunch of folks whose names you can’t know, whose land was named by its conquerors, whose language hasn’t been spoken for a thousand years, and whose gods aren’t worshiped by anyone anymore. This would be utterly ridiculous if it weren’t for the fact that religion in America is literally a mass-market consumer product. So I can’t ever be too hard on you.

    >This is usually the point where WNs bring up Jews, but this begs the question…how did Europe ever manage before? There were lots of Jews in the Holy Roman Empire, and somehow, this never led Leopold I to conclude that he should just stop with the Islamophobia and open up Vienna for one and for all.

    >The real questions you need to ask are all upstream of immigration, the Jews, the ghetto, etc. How did we get to a point where the entire upper stratum of our society is from nowhere? Why is the national civic religion basically McDonald’s with a cross above the Golden Arches? (Okay, that was our religion in 1965…I guess now it’s trying to turn your son into a tranny so you can brag on Facebook about it.) How the fuck did we get to the point where someone could even think of running for President on a platform of boosting GDP growth by repopulating America with Mexicans? Why does our ruling class think its job is to fiddle with policy levers to make numbers on an econometric chart rise and fall, the actual lives of people be damned?

    >All this happened because America is too big. It’s a continent-scale land mass with hundreds of millions of people living in it.

    >The answer is to chop it up and scale it down. Break it in pieces along geographical and ethnic lines. People need to be less mobile. They need to put down roots. It’s the only way you get religion that isn’t a slick product, politics that aren’t just about managing GDP and benefits programs, and a sense of who “your people” are that doesn’t come from an Xbox game about smashing a dragon in the face with a hammer. You ask about race and culture, well, where do those things come from? They come from populations that are rooted to a place. We’ve run our sense of belonging into ruin as we sprint from place to place in search of a paycheck, and it can’t be casually thrown back together. We have to break the empire apart and let things happen naturally. And if we’re lucky, a hundred years after we’re all dead, our descendants will finally identify with the land they were born in instead of the land an optimistic 19-year-old abandoned centuries before because he was sick and tired of the French and the Prussians chimping out all over it.

    To see how something implanted itself on a rock, study Christianity: « Upon this rock I will build my church » said Jesus about Peter (whose name means ‘rock’). The RCC traces its papacy to Peter, and has been the rock that has withstood for ca 2000 years and still does. Its never been more Christian, in fact.

    You make good points. However, I think the major players in the anti-spencer campaign already realized their mistake (its just too obvious). At least vox day did, as evidenced by his sympathetic treatment of the Roosh article about it being stupid to reject Spencer. I believe many or most will fall back in line within a few weeks, the rest weren’t even that committed to begin with. My prediction is that the alt-right will re-coalesce and may even end up being more extreme. In fact, that is likely, leftists high and low are still doing everything they can to piss off the silent majority. The frog’s pot keeps getting hotter. For every person this episode led to move from right to left, you had another moving even farther right out of spite. And some of those moving left only did so temporarily for herd mentality reasons. They are going to see a substantial part of herd moving the other way, and turn coats yet again. Fucking mob mentality I swear.

    Anyway, there have been lots of incidents, especially at schools among children, hard signalling both left and alt-right. Whites using trumps rise to signal against minorities in their schools, while on the left they do the reverse and worse given the number of attacks. What we are experiencing is an extreme radicalization cascade. The tails are moving away from each other at an alarming rate and those in the middle are being pushed to take sides. Most whites won’t end up taking the side of the left, a minority of microphone bearing urbanites excepted (and it doesn’t help middle America’s trust that many of these are being implicated as potential Satan worshiping pedophiles). Loud, but small in number. We are rapidly approaching civil war territory. Every day it seems more and more likely that one of the major reactionary goals we set for ourselves will be a complete failure. A peaceful restoration seems to be flying away from reach at mach speed. Which is why my predication is that the alt-right is not dying at all, but perhaps morphing into that monster we all feared at an accelerating rate. Perhaps it was naive to think it could have ever been prevented.

    There are several sides to this. The TRS-DailyStormer crowd are placing heavy emphasis on Cernovich and PJW who they correctly point out never really understood the alt-right or gave a convincing impersonation thereof (apparently they do not have access to a search engine). It is very gratifying for them to say they weren’t alt-right in the first place because that is a 100% true statement. But it also allows them to ignore something a bit more inconvenient. This is a lot bigger than Cernovich. You could say there are 3 actual broad strata of alt-right: the original alt-right, the pol alt-right, and confused conservatives that like memes and edginess. I was surprised as anyone that ironic comedic fascism could actually work but it somehow did and was quite entertaining. The focus on Cernovich draws attention from the fact that there are huge swaths of the alt-right, most of which actually precede the rise of TRS, DailyStormer, and pol, who are unhappy towards these newcomers now that they’ve revealed that their ironic Nazism was a fig leaf for earnest Nazism. My Posting Career, Hateful Heretic, Colin Liddell, Andy Nowicki, Greg Johnson, Occidental Observer, Vdare, among others all blue chip alt-right opinion leaders have, in not so blunt terms, pointed out how fucking stupid and self defeating this whole affair has been. In fact, even among the TRS-DailyStormer crowd there doesn’t seem to have a firm consensus as to what this actually about. The three explanations floated are:

    1. Irony and exuberance
    2. False flag optics from plants
    3. This is who we really are and always have been DEAL WITH IT CONSERVADAD!

    I think smart guys call this “kettle logic.” Sure, sure, it’s not as if all three are coming out of the same keyboard at once but everyone seems remarkably incurious as to which of these is the true overriding issue. Spencer has gotten himself in way over his head. He isn’t just being used a tool by the media, but also now a tool of TRS-DailyStormer. They will inevitably cast him aside when he no longer useful if he doesn’t now follow their lead. Spencer is now Anglin’s puppet. All in all, a real shitshow. Sad!

This is a tempest in a teapot.

    The NPI conference will most likely be double the size one year from now. The alt-right cannot die: it lives in the perfect environment. To kill the alt-right you would have to kill Weimerica. There’s a 0% chance Weimerica will die in the next 4 to 8 years. Zero percent.

    No, I actually agree. Point is, this has nothing to do with the ‘why’ of the phoney outrage. “Bad publicity” from an actor that is on a consistent trend of status loss is not really bad publicity. You think the lamestream media and the alt-right are caught in a mutually destructive feedback loop. What you miss is the fact that the game is asymmetrical. The alt-right has nothing to lose but what it fails to gain.

    The Daily Caller ran a piece calling out CNN for falsely reporting that Spencer claims jewish people are soulless golems, for example.

    You had a couple of posts recently pointing out the same trends. Your past antagonism with the alt-right is making you inattentive and forgetful.

    Or rather, you misidentify the direction of the asymmetry, because you base it on an anachronistic view of reality. The press is not what it once was, and the alt-right is slowly feeding on its corpse.

    The problem with Hitlerism, of course, is that it is ideological and not realistic. But in that sense, classical liberalism is Communism because it is based on the liberal assumption of the modern state.

    That, and our WASP forebears were as appalled by its brutality and machine-like blocky and rigid thinking as we are.

    The real money here is betting on political takeover and transition in the West to an aristocracy. I estimate within the next 40 years this will happen. Liberal democracy died; Fukuyama bowed to Huntington, and now, we are picking apart the apparatus that the last 227 years have given us.

    Jim repeatedly has to denounce NatSoc ideology and I’m amazed every time because this should go without saying. I think what is going on is that people spend too much time on Twitter or other places and become exposed to the loudest, most obnoxious portions and end up taking that seriously, which then means you have to signal aggressively to make it known to everyone that “you’re not Them”.

    The alt-right as focal point for the 2016 election is dead in that it has fulfilled its purpose, the election is over. The surface level descriptor “alternative Right” will of course continue to flourish. That is the work you are engaged with, the work all of us here are engaged with. /pol/ and the ‘nut case 1488r’s’ had already distanced themselves from the descriptor ‘alt-right’ many many months ago, when it became evident that MSM would only cover men like Milo and Spencer, and not men like Anglin. Consider this a purity spiral if you wish.

    The viewpoint I hold is that the alt-right is more effective than previous movements such as paleoconservatism precisely because it exists as a form of swarm intelligence. Imagine a million ants attacking the Fourth Estate and the Cathedral over the course of the last year, this was accomplished because the 2016 election was such a powerful focus for the swarm intelligence of the alt-right. Now that this focus has exhausted itself, the swarm itself does not suddenly disappear.

    I expect there will be breathing room now to focus on other, perhaps infinitely more interesting, but nonetheless different areas which pull our interests. Now its not a million ants swarming on American electorate issues, but branching back out into their thousands of different little avenues, similar to what was occurring before this election brought so many disparate elements together.

    The point of this perspective is that when a powerful enough focal point reasserts itself again, the machinery in place driving this distributed decentralized movement can be started up again. The pathways are already driven so deeply by the achievement of the goal of electing Trump that I suspect many people, many ants, who otherwise would have lost interest already are now going to be lifelong converts to the ‘alternative Right’ as broader mechanism, not necessarily ‘alt-right’ as MSM whipping boy. So, in one sense, it doesn’t matter if the descriptor “alt-right” is dead and whether people distance themselves from it increasingly or not, assuming they will continue to stay plugged in to the underlying mechanisms which spawned it, and since so many of us appear so intrinsically attached to the internet, I see no issue here.

    Now its just a matter of ensuring the physical technology at the heart of it all is not completely shut down, so I conclude — people with ability to create meshnets and other alternative internet technologies are going to become increasingly important, maybe Urbit will end up phenomenally important, I’m not in a position to tell.

    The “alt-right” is just a basket term for anyone who is farther to the right of establishment conservatives. Now that they have become a hot potato to be passed aggressively, people will pretend they (the alt-right) are comprised exclusively of populists and nazis. Populists and nazis are of course bad, but using the term “alt-right” to describe only populists and nazis is not even doing your homework. It’s wilful ignorance.

    “no enemies to the right just doesn’t work.”

    How so? The purpose of that principle is to neutralize an especially effective trick from Cathedral’s mind control toolbox, which works something like this:

    (1) Pick up a guy, or a group. Aggressively paint them as the ‘leaders’ or ‘prominent members’ or ‘representatives’ of the movement, through semi-coordinated media narrative.
    (2) Demonize them by tapping into cultural programming that has been meticulously put in place through decades of media-academia-civil-service-public-school-system indoctrination.
    (3) Aggressively demand disavowals from prominent right wingers so as to create the common knowledge that any idea associated with the demonized guy or group STILL IS TABOO.

    This weird little trick is the prime method via which Cathedral injects crimestop circuitry into people’s minds. “No enemies to the right” means, you refuse to publicly disavow, in other words, you refuse to do media’s work for them. You refuse to create the public signal that if anyone associates with those crimethinkers in any way, shape or form, you’d ostracize them. This is not about accepting people into the tent. This is about taking away Cathedral’s primary mind control device.

    When the left refuses to disavow (mostly by omission) their monsters, they don’t become part of the same big tent, not even in the average man’s mind. They just make discussing communist ideas non-taboo. They don’t face the impossible battle of going against people’s preconceived negative impressions of communism when they talk about UBI for instance. But if you publicly disavow Spencer, or NPI, for allowing roman salutes, people will call you a Nazi when you talk about HBD, purely out of a visceral, culturally programmed fear that if they don’t disavow you publicly, they will be associated with you, which means that they’re going to be the ones to be disavowed next. You can’t ever get associated with heresy.

    The only way to win in their evil little game of gossip is to walk away. We call this strategy “no enemies to the right”.

    As much as I admire heroic mindset sometimes, far too many people foolishly substitute it for cold strategizing. Even the smart suffer from this.

    I was reading this the other day. It’s appalling how the noblemen (especially the French) gifted the Balkans to the Turks by unbridled pride:

    Sigismund called a war council on the 24th, in which he and Mircea of Wallachia suggested a battle plan in which the Wallachian foot soldiers, who had experience in fighting the Turks, would be sent in the first attack to meet the Turkish vanguard; this was usually a poorly armed militia, normally used for pillage but used in battle to tire opponents before they met better quality Turkish forces. Sigismund claimed that this vanguard was not worthy of the attention of knights. Sigismund proposed that, once the shock of first clash had passed, the French form the front line to rush in, while the Hungarians and the other allies follow to support the attack and keep the sipahis (Turkish cavalry) from sweeping around the crusaders’ flanks. D’Eu denounced the proposal as demeaning to the knights, who would be forced to follow peasant footmen into battle. He reportedly stated, “To take up the rear is to dishonor us, and expose us to the contempt of all” and declared that he would claim front place as Constable and anyone in front of him would do him mortal insult. In this he was supported by Boucicaut; Nevers, reassured by the confidence of the younger French lords, was easily convinced.

    It appears that suffering from emotional unrestraint has been a trait of decentralized western military/political coalitions.

    Alt-white incontinence must be really exasperating for their allies. Hazards of demotism. They were accusing Vox Day a couple of months ago, of trying to steal the ‘Alt-right’ label. The stupidity is mind boggling… Now they talk about purging classical liberals and prominent media allies… Pure heroic delusion. Not to mention Richard Spencer should have known better than to let legacy media use him.

    There is no question of the man´s excellancy. Hegel said a similar thing of him as Goethe.

    He´s a sort of Augustus. But Evola´s point was that he went out in flames instead of coolness. Like Hitler. Both out of revolution. Like Augustus, admittedly.

    This is an area of thought I am still developing. I am no parrotor of anyone, but a critical thinker too.

    If Bonaparte is a Bonapartist for having risen from a revolution, why didn´t Evola attribute that to Augustus as well?

    One thing is that Augustus built a lasting dynasty. He lived to old age. However, Caesar was killed early in his fort. And Augustus is Caesar´s successor.

    Evola was not without sins. He had a hyperidealistic view in mix with a realistic one. Don´t we all?

    I suppose he is right though after all. The Roman empire, if we count all its claimants ended ca. 1800 years after Caesar. The French ended how soon after our Nap?

    There´s the Byzantine (Eastern Roman), the Carolingian and the Franks, and then the Holy Roman Empire, as well as the Russian. All claimed to be Romans. This ends in 1917. We are now in the interregnum.

    Your ‘marriage of convenience’ point about the Legacy Media is the biggest knock against Spencer’s brand of alt-right-ism. He thinks that he can leverage the MSM’s signal-boosting to his advantage indefinitely, but they’re using him to erode the momentum of the right and rally their own troops. They have their own reasons for asking him for quotes, writing pieces about him and inviting him on talk shows. How can he be so naive? Was he paying attention when a single appearance on BBC question time by Nick Griffin destroyed the British National Party?

    In the past week Richard has become the newly annointed Goldstein for the Cathedral Big Brother’s two minute hate, because the David Duke meme grew stale – and he won’t realize it, or won’t care if he does, since his core 1488-ers enjoy the flirtations with Nazism and will encourage him to do more. I feel sad about this on some level because I used to really enjoy his content on Alternative Right cum Radix, and still do enjoy some of it – but something has changed, and I suppose something was always wrong, but it wasn’t as obvious when he was obscure and more “meta” than “politics” – there was more space to think and breathe clean air when he was just some dilettantish rich guy in Whitefish Montana with a weird hobby (weirdly, he has always been among the most infrequent writers on his own websites, sometimes going months without posting anything under his own name). Now he’s famous, and the meatspace alt-right is mutating into a self-referential ego trip with the primary goal of shoving as many fascistoid-motifs and gestures into the cultural space as quickly as possible, + simple attention-seeking. They’ll get the latter in spades: the alt-right is already a rallying cry for leftist protests all over the country.

    Yet, Lord KEK serves no self-appointed Fuhrer from Montana. The real strength of the alt-right is the undefinable chaos of 4chan, twitter and youtube trolling, and the archipelago of philosophically-inclined blogs, which are at most bemused by such theatrics. The many thousands of “red-pilled” kids online who helped meme Trump into the white house are not going to go away because of Richard Spencer’s lack of vision. People are seeing Reality, and the Narrative is losing its force. Praise KEK.

    @peterstone

    Yeah… to me its worse than that though – it isn’t just a matter of flawed public relations, it suggests that Richard’s mentality is rooted in something unwholesome. He wants fame and power and he’s clearly modeling his image on 20th century fascist totalitarianism: the Hitler Jugend cowlick, the staccato arm gesticulations and high-pitched shouting towards the end of his recent NPI speech, the rhetoric about “children of the sun” and “conquer or die.” I don’t view these as superficial flirtations with Nazism: they reflect a deep underlying affinity. I side with admin on this score: I don’t think we need another round of this shit.

    Reclaiming basic sanity and self-respect for demoralized white people and destroying the dogma of egalitarianism are not the same thing as resurrecting a post-death of God neopagan bloodcult. The fascist utopian blood-religion is a very dangerous heresy. Bad trees bear bad fruits.

    Nietzsche was wrong insofar as he thought anyone (‘Overman’) would arrive who could create new value. There is no evidence that value is something humans can create – it is discovered, has been discovered, and has been encoded in our religious traditions for thousands of years through parables, myths and instructions on how to be in the world.

    The disaster of the death of God was that this “knowledge-how” about the nature of being was lost when the “knowledge-that” proposition of God’s existence undergirding the whole structure was destroyed. But we can’t throw all of that stuff out, because our attempts to articulate anything new (different) have all failed, have turned into one disaster and bloodbath after another. Reality is what it is.

    We are better off changing our angle of approach and revisiting the old gods with fresh eyes. And a bit of meditation practice wouldn’t hurt either…

    G. Eiríksson Reply:

    St. Neetzsche´s point is that we value things differently according to millieu or perspective, right? That´s just a basic fact of different humans valuing things differently. Not everybody wants to pay the same amount for the same thing. Some people would pay 2.000$ for a painting which others would like to simply shoot with their shotgun.

    St. N, or big N as I like to call him, refers to the values of Christianity having eroded. That´s natural. The values of the original Romanity eroded too, before they adopted Christianity. And so on and so forth, back in history.

    Like you know, the 70´s had their values and trends, and then that got replaced with different ones, different emphasis in the 80´s. Like you´ll want burgers this year, and next you´ll love steak more.

    However, N deals with this process of erosion under the term ‘nihilism’.

    IVPTIER had sort of died, hadn´t he for him to be replaced by Jesus.

    But dead things may never die. Right? Yeah.

    The beyond man, and creating values thing: is actually what you *are* suggesting. It doesn´t mean, like you thought, “creating value from scratch” (impossible. Nature abhors a vacuum). It means finding purpose in chaos, and readapting (transvaluation he calls it) the old.

    Which is also what you´re suggesting.

    Very few actually get Neetzsche.

    His language is mystical.

    But he is rational.

    Are we looking at the same Corpse? God is so dead there’s no other way. The neochristian mudbloodcult isn’t working out, it’s time to quit wallowing and hose off.

    It’s dysphemistic to call it a bloodcult, it’s more accurately a volk religion that’s needed. With something like that we won’t have to resort to Chinadom which frankly would be more shameful than an Uberhitler.

    Basic sanity and self-respect are only going to return if we make Distinction great again. The relativistic grab-bag that our culture bestows upon us inculcates fetishism of the Low, we need a fideism of the High. That’s going to mean drawing a line between races. I don’t think anyone is going to make a fuss about absorbing some Asians, but most of the other races need to be relegated to their proper status as Low so we can all move on with our lives living in REALITY–and the infectious propagandists of the Low, well–.

    And no, I’m not advocating “no enemies to the right” here. I’m advocating for a stop to pointless, unproductive fence-building. Neighbours largely know who owns which territory. Anyone else wouldn’t notice and wouldn’t care about the finer distinctions between neoreaction and the wider alt-right.

  • darkreformation101 Says:

    “What is NRx doing to capitalise on this? What is NRx doing to wake them up?”

    I have outlined a general plan here. It is more or less Moldbug, but with some modifications:

    https://darkreformation101.wordpress.com/2016/09/23/the-dark-reformation-part-11-what-is-to-be-done/

    In short, the Antiversity (what I call Nous — Mind or Intelligence) needs to be built.

    I have a plan to build it from something else which I call the Doomsday Book. I will be posting about it soon.

    The Doomsday Book, in short, is a online, self-organising and self-replicating ARGUMENT.

    Moldbug’s Antiversity (Nous) is Theortical and disinterested. Doomsday is practical and self-interested. It is intended to act like the French philosophers encyclopaedia. It a weapon against the Cathedral. It states the “blue pills” v the “red pills” claims clearly and simply. Then, it compiles the evidence for the “red pills.” (See Moldbug’s ten red pills.)

    It is self-organising and self-replicating because there will be different claims which correspond to different departments. Departments will have different leaders who are resposible for growth.

    Growth means growth in evidence and growth in numbers over time. Department heads, who report to Doomsday leader, will become experts in their field. This is the nucleus from which Nous can be built.

    Doomsday is online and uses “swarm intelligence.” It aims to attract more and more people.

    Eyes: eyes see information and send links to checkers.

    Checkers: checkers sort information, discard or accept the links.

    Chiefs: Chiefs place the links (evidence) within the claim.

    Claim Commanders: claim commanders are responsible for a single argument. They have two tasks, grow the evidence and grow the eyes and checkers.

    Department heads: department heads are responsible for fields such as economics, foreign policy, education etc etc. DH oversee claim commanders.

    Sovereign: Doomsday Chief Executive. Responsible for growth, stability, appointments and operations.

    Operations: Attack and Defence.

    Attack: begin with small scale attacks (swarm intelligence) on right wing, libertarian and conservative religious blogs. The aims is to win converts. Secondly, attack moderate and liberal bloggers. Either convert or destroy — take scalps. Doomsday records all encounters. Doomsday thus becomes a Song of victory. It builds it mythos. The attackers have online identities and try to be the most badass on the net. They aim to become legends in the field.

    Attacks begin to escalate. Target prominent Brahmins, again using swarm intelligence. The aim is either to convert or crush — intellectually humiliate.

    Doomsday begins to win a reputation. It grows.

    Keep escalating attacks.

    Defence: Brahmins will attack Doomsday. Excellent. Their attacks will be met with strong counter-attacks. All battles will be recorded. Doomsday always has the last word, it never surrenders. Sheer relentless Borg like like attacks by swarmers will mean that no individual can ever hope to out point it. It wears it opponents down via attrition.

    Anyone who attacks Doomsday goes in the “black book” they will be tracked and recorded. Periodically, they will be attacked. If they commit intellectual fraud or deceit or some other illegality they will be attacked.

    Doomsday will thus become feared.

    Foreign goverments and other enemies of the Cathedral will want to support and fund Doomsday. Doomsday leaders will be experts in their field.

    Thus, from this, Nous can be born. Nous, however, must become completely separate from Doomsday.

    Further points. Doomsday aims to become the one stop shop for all evidence of Cathedral lies and stupidity. Secondly, it should have different pages to illustrate growth. For example, page x should show evidence at time T1. Page Xx shows evidence at time t2. Thus it has a visual effect upon the readers which leaves them with the impression of “progressive decay.”

    Doomsday book should be updated at a fixed point (bi weekly?) always. Regularity is key.

    It is centralised, it has a clear chain of command, it has a clear purpose, it delegates responsibility to individuals. It operates like any well run organisation.

    But the key is growth. Growth in evidence, growth in numbers, growth in readers, growth in attacks, growth in reputation.

    It is cancer for the Cathedral. It is a tumour.

    I got this idea partly from Nick Land’s chaos patch. However, the patch is not centralised and has no clear and simple purpose (argument). It has no personnel working for it. Etc etc. But it does have that interesting feature of repetition of a theme (chaos). It sets up a frame and orders information to create both cognitive and emotional effect. Furthermore, what I also saw from this website, is that readers send Land links via the comments. This is where I got the idea of Eyes.

    I do not have the financial capital or technical skills to operate Doomsday — others do, however. Thus, I propose that someone with standing and authority and allies within reaction to execute this plan — if they think it would be a good idea.

    That’s my idea anyway. I will outline it more in one of my later posts. However, I hope to publish a massive piece on Moldbug soon — the ten pillars of Mencius Moldbug.

Meme magic is a real entity that clearly effected US election, and it could not hack people’s minds if it wasn’t “cool”, like appropriating Mac Tonight or Pepe, it relies on the postmodern cache of memes to spread. Classical fascism had the same elements, i.e. coolest uniforms, songs, graphic design etc the bombast of the Horst Wessel Lied, the leatherman S&M chic of their clothes etc. People need to take contemporary fascism seriously, don’t be taken in by allegedly ‘cooler heads’, it is deadly serious and it’s not going to evaporate.
