It can be difficult for rightists to grasp that the convulsive weirdness of the contemporary left is feature, not bug.

    The symbolic/emotional world is created to distract from the real one, so that people can feel confident without correcting their deficiencies. It is all monkey dynamics.

    The symbolic/emotional world is considered the most authentic. People even describe such outbursts as “real.”

    Gotta ensure high morbidity for these abstractions.

    Brett Stevens Reply:

    Good point. This perception seems to arise from the sensation of individualism: thoughts within the mind, especially social thoughts, are stronger than more remote perceptions. For that reason, people think of them as more real, much in the same way they consider personal hunger in the present more real than the threat of nuclear war in two weeks.

    I don’t think so. The most illiberal ones (romantic and heroic reactionaries, various “trads,” RaHoWa types, identitarians, etc.) are exactly the most touchy-feely ones. They tend to be constantly drunk on Outrage Porn, with their critical thinking skills in a state of exponential decay.

    Nails it. Behind the mask of order, lies a disturbed deep nothing. A permaperturbed void of hidden inferiority, grabbing fearful at the “heights” of power.

    But if it takes high-intensity outrage-porn to get them speaking in tongues, it suggests the spontaneous emotional reactivity is lower.

    Still, I don’t disagree — Coldness is mostly a gray-tribe virtue.

    To be sure: Merkel is illiberal. If she was a true liberal she wouldn´t preside over an authoritarian state that violently forces changes upon its citizens.

    She wouldn´t have a political machine and cointelpro operations that sabotage and disable all really alternative parties. etc.

    This obession with not allowing whites to have even, as it were, a single nation of their own among dozens of “multicultural” pseudo-utopias, is just weird! What is beyond the facade of humanism? A gaping void, waiting to swallow us all.

    The reason these demon-possessed schemers give is that the state has to have oversight into communities to stop things like infanticide, domestic abuse, black market activities, labour abuse. At the same time it enables these things through letting African & Arabic communities form in every nation in Europe. There are news almost daily now of absurd Third-World type of crimes being commited in the first world. Human sacrifices, voodoo killings, countless rapes, rotten, horse or rat meat in kebab, endless black market runnings and labour abuse. Pure satanism.

    I know it’s not the kind of thing to bring up in polite society, but the fact that #gamergate happened casts some serious doubts on everything you’ve just said. Coldness is a virtue that grays love to signal, but rarely perform.

    I mostly missed the whole ‘gamergate’ kerfuffle. What happened?

    Actually, you don’t need to bother, it’s in my “trivial BS with lots of screaming (all around)” file.

    NRK Reply:

    Oh well, it’s been two years, so I guess there’s room for hoping this won’t derail everything…
    Basically, people got really mad at articles attacking the ‘gamer identity’ or something along those lines, and also at what was falsely perceived as a case of corruption in the coverage of a free indie game that none of the people who got mad was going to play in the first place. Of the events that followed, no clear account can be established, as both sides accuse each other of downplaying their own wrongdoing and exagerating or even faking the extent to which they’ve been doxxed, harrassed and threatened…very, very silly internet drama, all in all, but rather instrucive regarding the gray tribe’s claims to cold rationality.

    GamerGate is far more interesting than it might appear. I had no part in it, but observed it coldly. Firstly, it can be studied as information warfare. I don´t know of anything ever in history resembling that cyber-fight. It was a massive war. Involving large multi-billion dollar businesses. Death threats. Pressuring to change games to fit Leftist standards. It´s very interesting from many theoretical & nonamateur perspectives.

    I´d be surprised of MIC hasn´t studied it.

    (N) G. Eiríksson Reply:

    Aside from the Holocaust, there are very few Wikipedia entries droned as much by the Cathedral as the one on GamerGate.

    Typically Wikipedia is very accurate, even on e.g. Evola, but the entry on GamerGate is totally a purely one-sided SocJus Newspeak piece.

    It´s remarkable for anyone into Media Studies, Cultural Studies, and what not.

  • (N) G. Eiríksson Says:

    The same phenomenon as is described in these tweets is described in the classic Gustave LeBon The Crowd.

    Some, as it were, random selections:

    ▬ “When, however, a certain number of these individuals are gathered together in a crowd for purposes of action, observation proves that, from the mere fact of their being assembled, there result certain new psychological characteristics, which are added to the racial characteristics …”

    ▬ “[N]othing is more fatal to a people than the mania for great reforms, however excellent these reforms may appear theoretically. They would only be useful were it possible to change instantaneously the genius of nations. This power, however, is only possessed by time. Men are ruled by ideas, sentiments, and customs — matters which are of the essence of ourselves. Institutions and laws are the outward manifestation of our character, the expression of its needs. Being its outcome, institutions and laws cannot change this character.”

    ▬ “It is necessary, in consequence, when studying a social phenomenon, to consider it successively under two very different aspects. It will then be seen that the teachings of pure reason are very often contrary to those of practical reason. There are scarcely any data, even physical, to which this distinction is not applicable. From the point of view of absolute truth a cube or a circle are invariable geometrical figures, rigorously defined by certain formulas. From the point of view of the impression they make on our eye these geometrical figures may assume very varied shapes. By perspective the cube may be transformed into a pyramid or a square, the circle into an ellipse or a straight line. Moreover, the consideration of these fictitious shapes is far more important than that of the real shapes, for it is they and they alone that we see and that can be reproduced by photography or in pictures. In certain cases there is more truth in the unreal than in the real.”

    ▬ “The philosopher who studies social phenomena should bear in mind that side by side with their theoretical value they possess a practical value, and that this latter, so far as the evolution of civilisation is concerned, is alone of importance. The recognition of this fact should render him very circumspect with regard to the conclusions that logic would seem at first to enforce upon him.
    There are other motives that dictate to him a like reserve. The complexity of social facts is such, that it is impossible to grasp them as a whole and to foresee the effects of their reciprocal influence. It seems, too, that behind the visible facts are hidden at times thousands of invisible causes. Visible social phenomena appear to be the result of an immense, unconscious working, that as a rule is beyond the reach of our analysis. Perceptible phenomena may be compared to the waves, which are the expression on the surface of the ocean of deep-lying disturbances of which we know nothing. So far as the majority of their acts are considered, crowds display a singularly inferior mentality; yet there are other acts in which they appear to be guided by those mysterious forces which the ancients denominated destiny, nature, or providence, which we call the voices of the dead, and whose power it is impossible to overlook, although we ignore their essence.”

    This is just from the preface. The book is a masterpiece.

    Just to add that yer man Evolva was much into such esoteria, as was admin’s man Crowley. And even though from a Western scientific perspective, such notions as chakras and serpent energy are just a load of woo-ish nonsense, nevertheless the actual techniques themselves produce real empirical effects, and are thus amenable to scientific investigation.

    Incidentally, with regard to Eastern meditation techniques, truly remarkable results have been reported when intensive vipassana courses have been implemented in prisons. Not only in India but worldwide, even the most vicious of criminals have reportedly been completely transformed, their violent monkey business transmuted –

    you are correct there are several practices i have found that produce astounding results not explainable by current science although there is some serious work finally going on at least in OBDs and wakeful dreaming though Im unaware of any that have looked at that volcanic chakre experience. What i am curious about is how it might be explained if not spiritually. how and when did it evolve and why theres little if any record outside india i am not indian and i can do it. ideas about linking it to particle physics etc are really bs attempts to graft some explanation on after the fact. it really needs to be explained evolutionarily or accept we were created. I have found ‘spirituality’ is not in fact needed to practice these things although for a while i thought it must as i have left behind spirituality its made no difference.

    It’s funny, when I see an SJW say “I’m literally shaking” it actually makes me start to feel the same thing. Such an experience seems to arise out of a dire, extreme frustration at being completely powerless over the ability to change the person’s mind. Leftists really do just seem to express their inner experiences without having any understanding of what is causing it, so it’s no wonder that there is no communication between the two sides. The right winger views such emotional nonsense as patently disgusting. Why should we sympathize?

    It really is like praying for them. “Literally shaking.” They’re in their Twitter Pod, and they enter into the “literally shaking” mode. Much like speaking in tongues or praying. It is a sacred time. A sacred space. This is where they can go to “get away” from their emotional troubles. It really is funny. They’re completely delusional, of course. Their perception of the world is different from how it actually is, and their fears are based on distortions of the truth.

    All analysis aside, I can be perfectly honest and just tell you that my sole motivation is really just to destroy their entire worldview and all the power that comes with it. I’m not really here for much else reason. I genuinely want them to go. Whatever makes that happen is good to me. All their screeching, ignorance, and self-obsession just pools together to form a toxic waste that covers everything. They’re destroying every single aspect of culture. I can understand why they feel that way. I feel that way knowing that THEY exist in my society. I do hate them. I can’t stand having to deal with them and see the absolute toss that they spread. I guess that’s probably how they feel. The only difference is that I’m connected to the godhead. I do think they are connected absolutely to nothing at all.

    They are universally Godless, and they worship themselves. It’s no wonder that their “movement” is so strange in its manners. They have made a religion out of their lowly material existence. This is why it seems so bizarrely disgusting to us. What are they actually connecting to? There isn’t anything. They worship themselves, their social attention, their fashion style, and so on. I mean, really, that’s about 90% of what disgusts me so much about the SJW parasite. Yes, I am talking like someone who is driven by hate by calling the “eternal SJW” parasite. That’s how I feel. I feel almost no sympathy or empathy toward them. They’ve proven that such things are not deserved.

    Again, they worship themselves. They have no higher belief nor even a basic interest in “truth.” I can understand some of their anger, it’s likely they “feel” angry about not having money, life isn’t what they expected, etc. They make the mistake of using these feelings and directing it at virtue, value, and rationality – and Western Europe.

    As far as I can tell, the single best way to destroy them is to stay connecting to the godhead, whatever that may be for you – your higher self – and do not allow anything to weaken that. With this in mind, simply say and do that which is correct. In doing so you should theoretically virtually demonstrate the innate superiority of this way, and en masse the center will be strengthened. From then, their hedonistic religion relegates itself to irrelevance, falling away at the edges like shit being washed off of gold.

    The problem the “alt-right” and maybe nrx have is that they don’t seem to yet have a central embraced idea. There is no real “leadership” which is fine. The point still stands though, to simply note that this is actually a weakness in many respects. Without a consistent vision or value, such “movements” wash out, and inevitably are eaten alive. It’s hard to congeal to gold when your entire movement is based around destroying shit. There has to be something more than hatred of the SJW menace. The way to form the gold is to find what is gold inside of us, instead of what we simply reject, and focus energy upon that. Sounds dumb, and it is. Yet at the same time, it’s true and it works.

    When I think about what really made me become right wing, it was actually love for Germany. I love Germany for many reasons, and I can go into them more some time soon. The main thing is though, I was motivated by my deep love, respect, and hope for the German way. I wanted to see that way spread elsewhere, and for other nations to be inspired by it. I noticed that all the best things in society and culture where invariably influenced by Anglo (aka white male) origination, and this is no coincidence. It was never my hatred for SJWs that truly pushed me along. I was motivated by this love and passion for what I saw to be great. Truly great. Truly good. Truly advanced. Truly desirable. Truly positive. I stand by this, though it is unfashionable. What’s powerful is the things that I care about. It’s that passion that is undeniable, that can’t be destroyed. It’s that love that is unyielding. It can’t be destroyed. Is there hate hidden inside of the love – hate for the inferior? Nope. Only hate for the SJW menace that seeks to turn their hatred into love. Both sides are opposites. The SJW only feels hate, whereas I feel only love. Whatever hate arises is only as a result of being attacked ceaselessly by the SJW Maoist parasites who are motivated sheerly by their hatred for all that is good in the world. They want to turn our automated wheat fields into dysfunctional clay ruins. How can we not hate these evil subhumans? They are trying to kill us off.

    look im not really alt right certainly not socialist or and am in favor of hierarchy. but the fact no let me say THE FACT IS its not mobs that fucked the world up its high IQ people that sounded a lot like nrx, So its a little sickening to hear this same self congratulatory elitist attitude coupled with futuristic gobbldy gook out of the same playbook as marx and the masons and god knows what other self appointed saviors of mankind that always appear and turn it all to shit.this is not the henry fords and thomas edisons you dont get to take credit for that because you estimate yourself to have a equally high iq -im more like them i build things solve real world problems not larp about how one day ill rule the world with this cool new system i thought up

    I think this position is a strawmen.

    the SJW establish their hirachy based on what they call “structural opression”, the more you have of it the higher you stand. “Straight white males” (at least the mentaly healthy once) (they say “male” not “men” to be more insulting I think) are principly outside of this hirarchy as the great enemy against whoum any means are legitimate.

    They establish the amount of “structural opression” using various arguments that not only include feelings. Mostly it is a mix between socioeconomic status of a group on averege and how normal or mainstream a group and what it does is in society.

    For what they understand under structural opression see here: http://squid314.livejournal.com/354385.html?page=1%20?

    It´s sort of a strawman, in that the ‘feelz’ is a part of any subculture; including this one.

    The most intellectual of people recognize that any in-group is a cult. Cult is just short for culture, from Roman cultus. Statecraft is the managing of cultuses.

    Nothing is irrational, everything is rational. Calling things irrational or a cult is just a way of saying that it is a lower form of rationality or culture.

    Psychoticism is not an absolute, but a spectrum.

    [Insert “Boys cry too” or some late 90´s type of literary title.]

    Hierarchies never absolutely dissolve, and anarchy is only an apparition. There´s always a status dominion, and the rule of the archons is eternal.

    Powers and principalities.

    Leftism is the inversion of sane hierarchy. Merkelism a parody of the good.

    ▬ “Hierarchies never absolutely dissolve”

    Which is to say, the human state can dissolve into a subhuman state; on a vector from the beyond-human down to the infrahuman. The infrahuman can dissolve down to the mere hierarchy of a chemical ‘soup’ (obviously not even a mammalian or animal hierarchy anymore).

    Bodies not even communicating like sapient agents anymore is not a socii of men.

    I think the leftmind has a nearly plausible lenience, its means toward it is just implausible. The American Dream is Every Man (Person) His (Their) Own King (Queen). With transhumanism that is possible, assuming we are willing to tamper with eugenics, sterilization, and a temporary hit to the population.

    I’m talking about having peasants be cuckolds of half-blueblooded babies. This would require propaganda and Real Myth up the wazoo for a generation or two but if the ends justify the means… This is all scifi-talk though, the world’s too soft.

    btw I wonder if any reactionary has made a counterargument to this piece about “structural power” or even about the concept itself?

    My first thought would be that for instance the Jews in 12th century France had a lot of “structural power”, higher then average wealth per capita, preferential access to intellectual jobs and even influence on politics by having court jews having the ear of the King and many high nobles. The church on the other hand had far greater “social power”, we know who got expelled just 2 centuries later.

    SSCs idea of “structural power” seems to very strongly just coincide with “competence”. Some groups of people are more competent then others thus they accumulate more wealth and power and positive prejudices develop around them that help them to keep and increase this wealth and power. The fact that the Chinese in Indonesia have a lot of this “structural power” doesn’t help them when the majority or the government decides to squeeze them for money or even to kill them to satisfy thus with “social power” namely the Javan Indonesian nationalists who actually dictate politics in the country. They are the active force trying to impose Javan culture on the hundreds of Indonesian tribes, who might resist but who will always remain the passive force as long as they don’t hold formal power or can at least influence it enough to reverse the trend.
    The Russian communists were a relatively small group with barely 20% popular support (if we judge from the elections to the constitutional assembly), but because they managed to break all resistance to their rule and assume power they could impose their vision of society on the population. Of course there was resistance and for many years local elites while formally removed from any position of authority had “structural power”. But with time their power was broken and the communists established the structures of power they desired. Passive resistance of existing structures bent to force overtime.
    If informal power can’t be used to get formal power then it will always be sooner or later subjugated and devoured by thus who have formal power. And it is because of this that US non Brahmin whites should be afraid of their elite hating them and wanting to crush them and suck them dry and blame them for all evils of the world. After all if the holders of “social power” complain about “structural power” not being what they desire it to be, one can be sure they plan to go after it. All that holders of “structural power” can do in such a case is 1. Try to convert “structural power” into formal power or 2. Passively resist the onslaught of the holders of formal power hoping they get bored and leave them alone.

    It’s an old feature, too. Ralph Waldo Emerson picked up on the weirdness of New England abolitionists, a somatic pleasure that signals but stops short of action or authentic virtue:

    As far as I notice what passes in philanthropic meetings & holy hurrahs, there is very little depth of interest. The speakers warm each other’s skin & lubricate each other’s tongue & the words flow, & the superlatives thicken, & the lips quiver, & the eyes moisten, & an observer new to such scenes would say, here was true fire; the assembly were all ready to be martyred, & the effect of such a spirit on the community would be irresistable. But they separate & go to the shop, to a dance, to be, & an hour afterwards they care so little for the matter than on slightest temptation each one would disclaim the meeting. “Yes, he went, but they were for carrying it too far, &c. &c.” The lesson is to know that men are superficially very inflammable but that these fervors do not strike down & reach the action & habit of the man.—Journals, 1838 (emphasis added)

    (EmersoNrx—a splendid idiocy.)
