Launched in October of 2012, The Right Stuff is a political and cultural blog dedicated to the promotion of a post-Enlightenment ideology. You are miserable because you are free™.
What sets us apart from others within the “alt-right” blogging community is our focus on modern narrative; in particular, it’s re-appropriation and redirection. The result goes by varying names within our circle: anti-prometheism, post-postmodern, right-wing progressivism, neo-situationism, Cultural Metternichs.
While unabashedly authoritarian, fash-ist, and theocratic, we welcome comments from intelligent and civil people across the political spectrum.
Recurring themes: nationalism, statism, monarchism, democracy, liberalism, libertarianism, free markets, race relations, gender roles, pan-secession, revisionist history, conspiracy theories, pluralism, slavery, self-determination, imperialism, economics, political correctness, feminism, socialism, postmodernism, religion, etc.
While we certainly desire to tear down your decaying, liberal-aborted ideologies, we also seek to help you find something better to fill the void. That is, if your body is ready…
I was raised in a working-class liberal protestant home in Tennessee. For several years an atheistic ancap, I lost my faith in both the Merchant and the fedora around the Spring of 2012.
Originally focusing on economics and psychology, I have largely discarded these topics in favor of theology and philosophy. Other interests include: music, history, architecture, reading/collecting old books, and shooting guns.
I am happily married to the love of my life; we will be celebrating our 1st anniversary in October. I work in the medical field, and am currently trying to become a police officer.
Influences: George Fitzhugh, Søren Kierkegaard, Friedrich Nietzsche, Marcus Aurelius, Ragnar Redbeard, Bro. Michael and Peter Dimond, R.J. Rushdoony, Graaaaaagh, The Last Psychiatrist, Whittaker Chambers, Edward Bernays.
I was born and raised in an upper-middle-class white liberal protestant home in the Northeastern US. I became attracted to right-wing politics initially as a rebellion against my “more liberal than thou” upbringing. Like most of us, I was a libertarian for several years before I realized that freedom and markets are not necessarily going to lead to the best outcomes all the time. I had to face the reality of human bio-diversity and come to grips with the fact that libertarianism isn’t going to work for everyone, and the people that it isn’t going to work for are going to ruin it for everyone else.
I now prefer to write about political, social and cultural issues with a focus on critical race and gender theory.
My other hobbies are ancient history and listening to audio books with my wife. I work as a software engineer IRL and do most of the tech support for this site.
