Twitter cuts (#117)

This blog had some concerns about sacrificing Silicon Valley to the post-Calexit People’s Revolutionary Republic of California, but that might be exactly the educational experience it needs.

    More than 1600 major companies have fled CA in the last ten years. Silicon Valley is not immune… I’m very bullish on the prospects of Austin, TX…..

    Austin ?Its just another cali already, anyway the real other contender in the states is NYC/brooklyn its actually a lot farther along with the tech competition and brooklyn also wants an exit but lets remember progressivism is only a tool for the cathedral it will be stomped out like the other religions when it finishes being useful.

    The only way there’s any succession is with a war and its not going to be a left right war its going to be against the USG deep state armed forces to whatever extent they dont desert.Because they are not allowing left or right or ukraine to exit without a fight. If they were defeated there would be little to fight with the progressive states about because reality would set in and things would naturally get more reality based.

    Theres not going to be any Cal Exit, This is the Cathedral hotel california theres no checking out.You think the cathedral is going to allow its tech sector to exit LMAOROTF, or do you think the cathedral is going to downsize?

    Like I said ADMIN I will unconditionally surrender when you produce one viable exit, not in 50 years when we are all under zulu command, not to live under CHICOM control until the west falls and they knock on your door, or some unsustainable larp like a seastead thats never going to happen and if it did would still be under cathedral control like the south china sea is for now. For all your futurism you fail to see the most salient fact The Cathedral is a global occupying force that is quickly using tech to lock down the thousand year reich, a blog like this will soon be outlawed, yet you talk as if we have decades to larp about

    submission exit or war are theoretical choices, sure exit was the choice up to 100 years ago no longer an option, if your choice is submission then stop blogging

    well, he is in Shanghai, isn’t he? exit was an option for him.

    Well i don’t consider exile under communist rule amongst an alien race to be exit sustainable or even preferable to either submission or war here in the west. But admin is a multiculturalist elitist and former? marxist so his tastes are not mine. But I suspect his tastes are not what 99% of reaction altright is interested in either and he ought to be clear about what it is hes selling. Unless his purpose is to waste the energy of the right the way moldbug has brainwashed a lot of the right into do nothingism and pipe dreams.

    If i were an intelligent leftist that foresaw the crisis leftism would soon face as it intersected with reality and wanted to head off a coming reaction and neuter the cogelites that would emerge in the new reaction i couldn’t have come up with a better ruse than moldbug and Land

    I guess admin has been pretty clear about what he’s selling. he certainly made it pretty damn sure it’s not alt right paleoreaction.

    but yeah, maybe it’s too “leftist” for most to digest. they want Tolkien, not Gibson.

    What are the quotation marks doing around “leftist”?

    Sharing – not selling.

    What we thought was Atlantean vs. Hyperborean is in fact

    yellow-fever vs. Euros innovated 97% of high civilization so get over it

    Alt right and Neoreaction are not identical, sirs.

    Yeah Danny Im well aware been reading yarvin since he was commenting on Blowhards, Im not one of those ex libertarian marxist millennial reactionary new fags.
    Are you aware how much admin differs from the other reactionaries and how much even they differ from what they were about a few years ago? Theres pretty much a different take on AR/NRX for every commenter and blogger out there a decade later and nothing has been hammered out except we are not racist like those guys.

    Your identitarian perspective on a neoreaction blog is interesting, though of course, many of us who ascribe to Land’s ideas would reject many of your premises.

    Wagner Reply:

    Identitarianism vs. Landianism, I’d be interested to hear a point by point shoot-from-the-hip on this, Daniel. I don’t think I am the former, but maybe michael is? I’m basically springboarding from the Cathedral-approved intellectual authority of René Girard:

    “We can compare ancient societies to one another, but the global society now in the making is truly unique. Its superiority in every area is so overwhelming, so evident, that it is forbidden, paradoxically to acknowledge the fact, especially in Europe. This prohibition stems from the fear of a return to tyrannical pride. It is also the fear of humiliating nations that don’t belong to the privileged group.” (from his I See Satan Fall Like Lightning)

    Prog-psychology isn’t entirely unvirtuous, but of course, we know both from Lao Tzu and Aristotle that any virtue in excess becomes a vice. The fear of tyrannical pride has lapsed into tyrannical demotism and hyper-humility–(such is the way of the telos of Christ evidently). And the fear of humiliating backwards nations has lapsed into active humiliation of our own nations. In my humble opinion I think Landianism, inadvertently and despite its aspiration to Coldness, is one with prog-psychology in both ways stated. I hope you haven’t taken any of my remarks on this forum as disrespectful, Daniel. Maybe I have my own inadvertent vices (I probably do) but from my own self-understanding I think it’s more humiliating to other nations, e.g. China, to refrain from humiliating them, because honesty entails humiliation, and the only way to truly respect an other is to be honest to them.

    No offense taken. I don’t punch right.

    Naturally I have a strong preference for notions of societal harmony and my own view of Reaction is that it is more accurate to reality, and avoids the noble lies of the Enlightenment. Neoreaction is my idea of moving toward an awareness of a better and healthier governing style, one that properly enhances communication through expected roles and notions of hierarchy.

    Preening over this nation or that is of minimal importance to me, as I’m much more interested in assembling what can be assembled in superseding the errors of the current liberal democratic cancer, and in combating it as it tries to extend its tendrils over the remaining bastions of the world that yet manage to resist its memes.

    In such, of course, China holds honorable mention, as does Russia.

    Wagner Reply:

    Daniel, why not punch right? I think admin has a more or less defensible case: far-rightism lapses into lunacy. I guess it just depends on whether you have the temperament of a moderate or an extremist, I suppose I fall somewhere in between.

    “Preening over this nation or that is of minimal importance to me… of course, China holds honorable mention”.

    This is not a QED but it is close; be careful Dan, you are mess(ag)ing with people who have Aristotelian analyticity in their blood–whether we have the Tao is another story, but we *do* have that.

    And one wonders whether this is a discrepancy between temperament or temperature

    From the J. K. Rowling P. O. V. XS is an experiment in the temperance of East and West. This is a project too often taken with frivolity. Gravity is much more fitting imo (no pressure).

    If you pay attention I am neither neoreactionary or identitarian, i am a natural alpha and reactionary from the 70s. Much of what MM criticques is fairly accurate and certainly erudite and entertaining and a great way to introduce marxists anarchists libertarian and conservatives to some of the inconsistencies and problems.What preceded and proceeded MM was the final denouement of Darwin HBD, tech caught up and quants ran the numbers on sufficient leftist data.
    Ok but what then happened is MM cult rises and HBD is only looked at from one perspective which perspective getting narrower as NRX types cringe in relation to altright schism. Yes sure theres this natsoc thing but thats not the end of the story but thats all nrx will address because to go deeper into HBD implications undermines MM worship.
    If you want a system based on reality and begin by insisting on HBd as reality, but them want to gloss over race its not a good omen, but fine Ill give you that now what about gender? hardly a word is spoken. And why is it we are speaking? It was said we are speaking about reality because the world is coming to an end because we failed to acknowledge reality. so we are attempting to what save the world ourselves maybe our children what who? Well ok thats what darwin gnon says is te good to survive, shall we keep it to a personal quest or shall we decide what is the ideal size of society to most assure survival- I vote that. and I propose the ethnat to some degree is the ideal. I really shouldnt have to explain this but ill say i never thought this before MM and HBD and do not identify as alt right WN etc but have reluctantly had to admit its the best and only way. Partly because Unlike most here I actually understand we really really are on the verge of the end of the world if something doesnt radically change yesterday so any idea that involves futuristic schemes decades and centuries away is a joke, if they are actually good ideas apart from time decay then fine file them and lets get on with whats possible today. Of all the reactionary writers land is the most ridiculous.
    I am not anti hierarchy but i am in construction and I know that when i want to form a hierarchy to build something i certainly dont want a group of niggers to start with. but guess what if you live in a multicultural society niggers you will get and pretty soon whites are acting like niggers too, the military used to have what we called a two nigger rule, in any group never more than two niggers because one was well behaved two began to disrupt more and you lose group. you can not enforce a reasonable hierarchy on a too largely distributed group factions form. otherwise cohesive groups can discipline outliers in ways not cohesive groups cant. and we can see that this does not work at high end either you may think it perfectly natural the degree to which jews and east asians are becoming elites well try imagining if wasps were ruling china how would that feel and what do you think would eventually happen. its not sustainable. landiaN NRX IS EXACTLY CATHEDRALISM EXCEPT MAYBE HE ELIMINATES WELFARE thats not sustainable theirs more than one kind of hierarchy he imagines he can simply enslave all low IQ [people with a robot army, as ridiculous as that is what if he could what the iq cut off to be in the club, and where does the capital he is so enamored of come from already capitalism is collapsing because theres no one to sell to. HBD reality is we are wired to be eth nat and as ethnat we can more efficiently optimize a hierarchical civ but will have to slightly slower progress but its actually possible.

    Well, ethnat or not, European nations have had a significant succession of monarchies before which have operated with significant degrees of efficiency. The corporate governance system as indicated by MM has worked with Caucasians as well, as signified by the fact that corporations basically work in such a manner, and remain highly function.

    Far be it from me to interpret Dr. Land’s ideas for him, but I believe he seeks a synthesis of ideas based in reality from a variety of sources. This seems really sensible to me – for example, if Russians come up with a better method of launching satellites, I would want to learn of it and apply the same methodology in China as well.

    Of course, it might need adjustments for the material and the like, but experimentation allows us to learn and integrate what is valuable. Not trying, on the other hand, would miss a valuable epistemic opportunity.

    The People’s Republic of California long ago decided to focus on what voters wanted instead of needed. As a result, the virtue signaling spiral has gone too deep for them to see the light of day.

    Silicon Valley in the current year gives me the impression of being mostly pozzed, some with sincerity and others simply following the wind for entirely pragmatic reasons. Trump bros and Nrx people will certainly exist as political-cultural minorities but almost all of these will be deep in the closet, Thiel and Yarvin notwithstanding. Whatever open political heterodoxy or ideas of transcending politics that might have flourished there in the 90s has long since evaporated.
