Twitter cuts (#54)

For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. […] O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! (Romans 11:32-33)

    They are going to sabotage Trump, get in Cruz, promptly lose the election, and all keep their jobs.

    The GOP Establishment loses big if Trump wins; it means that they are no longer relevant and are not the crutch on which America relies for conservative parties. They’ve been cruising on Reagan’s rep for the past thirty years in sleepwalk mode.

    One strategy is to deny Trump enough nominees, so that the political and legal establishment chooses who is the nominee.

    Either way, the GOP wants HRC to take this election. In many ways this is intelligent: the economy is about to seriously collapse, and the last thing the GOP wants to do is assume responsibility for it.

    Not that the media will ever do anything but forge the data to blame conservative Presidents anyway.

    As you almost say, the “don’t look at me” strategy might be intelligent, if one assumes the media will care. But they won’t. And really, the job of the Washington Generals is not to make excuses but to lose in a convincing and fun fashion.

    That post itself and the comments on it serve as a valuable reminder that the NRx blogosphere is a bubble. Political discussions outside of it differ both in content and in style.

    One comment (besides Irving’s) that stands out in the one where an anonymous reader develops a conspiracy theory involving our host:

    [… I]f you read Land’s previous work as part of the CCRU, it appears that his current philosophical output is a continuation of his accelerationist and hyperstitional agenda. It’s strongly probable that he doesn’t actually believe any of the stuff he is writing, and some of his current rhetorical strategies completely match up with writing made 20 years ago (like creating apocalyptic memes within the right wing, or creating a group that constantly splits due to infighting). Tech-comm NRx is a means to his strategic ends of Deleuzean acceleration of the capitalist system. […]

    All in good fun, I would like to up the speculative ante a bit: there is no contradiction between Land genuinely holding NRx beliefs today and his earlier writings if you assume that Land_NRx is an entity hyperstitionally summoned by Land_CCRU into his own body to implement the accelerationist agenda.

    FWIW, I’ve also noticed a certain continuity in admin’s thoughts and philosophical concerns from when he first began writing to today. Yet I don’t understand why the anonymous commenter on the comment’s section I linked to interprets that continuity as a sign of admin’s untrustworthiness.

    cant see any problems with self contrudiction, with relation to ‘trust’ or anything. main thing is that ‘you have to start early as possible, cause you can catch a rabit even before you put your pants on’

    time line for future generations philosophers

    finish your study of philosophy in 15
    formulate your own system in 17
    get completely crazy in 18
    recover in 20
    start over again in 21

    each time you starting over again, there can be some contradictions, conseptual or even performative, it like self preservation reflex instant continouse contradictions, very sexy.

    >You don’t understand it because you reliably self-censor. Like most neoreactionaries, you don’t grok biological realism at all. And you never will. Why? Here’s a hint: blankslate-ists are born, not made.

    What is it that I “don’t grok” about HBD? If you’re going off of what I wrote on the site that I linked to, then I can only say that I was just trying to give a fair elaboration of admin’s views on race, as far as I understand it, given that the guy claimed to be writing a book on NRx, and I thought it’d be a gross mischaracterization if, in it, he described admin as a white nationalist.

    For the rest, I can say that my views on HBD, especially as it regards race, are exactly the same as what I think admin’s are. If you think those views are incorrect, why don’t you specify why you think that, instead of falsely accusing me of blankslate-ism.

    The allegation that admin is a practitioner of Lemurian time sorcery is, strictly speaking, unfounded. Yet the rumors persist.

    @TheDividualist ,

    99% of government is not elected. True and that’s why we probably still can’t talk or vote our way out of this mess. They may not go peacefully even if terrified, given their fantastic debts of especially derivatives [$552 Trillion as of Dec 15] and Entitlements to an armed mob of hundreds of millions they can’t pay. When you can’t surrender with an expectation of survival you don’t surrender.

    However we are picking a War Captain with the Election and it’s a War Captain on our side.

    I’ve been saying this for a bit now: 4 offices count: President, Governor, Sheriff, Mayor.

    They command the legitimate and Constitutional Force of Military and Police.

    The rest are rent seekers.

    The Constitutional and democracy may of course not matter to you but it matters to many armed and angry millions, including sworn and ready [and so ready] millions.

    Therefore The Constitutional matters.

    @admin

    This is completely offtopic but I was thinking about your secessionist ideas lately. Have you ever seen in a poorer country the kind of tight-knit rural community that Nisbet type Western conservatives tend to value high? I have and generally it was based on exchanges, not just hanging out together or having shared values or culture. It was that you are so poor that you have to borrow tools from your neighbor in order to be able to fix your fence or something, and all this favor-trading created it. Plain simply people needed to cooperate, there was a clear economic advantage in it. This is generally why and how you see a 2-3x GDP difference between Western and Eastern Europe but the actually quality of living has less of a difference, because often ruralish folks in EE won’t buy meat in the grocery store, they buy a side of a pig from the neighbor’s cousin, no taxes. This is actually, these trades, exchanges, favors, is what the tight-knit community is about, it is no that spiritual or cultural. Of course, this makes people like each other. (And often hate. But they rarely stay indifferent.)

    So anyway. We need to start figuring out how can Neoreactionaries or at least various subsets of the Outer Right trade something more than ideas with each other. Otherwise it will fall apart like so many other subcultures did that only traded ideas. We need to figure out the equivalent of borrowing the neighbors power tool or buying the neighbor’s cousins homemade wine.

    Or even if secession is not organized on this basis, it has to be more than like-minded groups. They have to see a clear and rather present and not post-collapse economic advantage in trading favors or buying stuff from each other. Nothing else really keeps people together, well perhaps religion does but that is a different story. Religious communities still had and have these trades.

    Any ideas?

    That would require neoreactionaries to be willing to go to the trouble to create something more solid than ideas, which is contrary to experience.

    There are places like that already within the US moving to these places is no hardship in fact you will wonder why on earth you didnt do it decades ago they are naturally conservative civilized friendly and interesting, not only do you get to live in a conservative place you bolster its conservatism these places can sometime attract non conservatives looking for shelter from their leftism that then set about recreating it.If there ever is a collapse these places will be safe but also they will be of strategic importance. the mountain west is my choice north idaho specifically it might be the most beautiful place on earth.Barter is a huge part of the economy out there it might be 10% more. Store owners are not offended if you offer a trade instead of the cash price anything offered for sale privately is always open to barter as well as cash.A rural area has less cash but it doesnt stop them from being economic. It seems to keep prices higher which is its intent rather than lower as we might expect of a cash poor economy.Cash must compete.I have to admit they also understood the cathedral twenty years before moldbug they think the conspiracy is less open than he i used to laugh at me friends paranoia Im not so sure anymore

    @TheDividualist

    You bring up interesting question and I won’t pretend to have an answer to them.

    What I do know, however, is this. When you count all of the people who are economic dependents–the government workers (who make up ~16 percent of the workforce), the retirees on Social Security, the unemployed on unemployment, the welfare leeches, public school teachers (who aren’t counted as government workers in the employment statistics), everyone (students, professors and administrators) in the higher education system, everyone (workers and consumers) involved in the heavily government subsidized health care industry, etc., etc.–you realize that at this point in time, if D.C. were to lose control, and were to stop, either out of choice or necessity, paying its bills, well, in that case, the consequence would be an enormous and catastrophic amount of human suffering, of a kind that we’ve never really seen before, anywhere and at any time in human history.

    Those calling for secession don’t seem to understand this (and of those who do, particularly admin, they know very well what secession would lead to, and welcome it for that reason). I want a break-up too, but I want it to happen gradually, over a long enough timeframe that people can prepare themselves to survive the post-American future.

    I would add that doing favours for each other again and again is a great way to build trust, which is a prerequisite to a well-functioning community. It’s the opposite of Homer Simpson screwing over Ned Flanders over and over again. Of course, our modern world puts up some obstacles against such a healthy process.
