“This more delusive, not the touch, but taste
Deceived; they, fondly thinking to allay
Their appetite with gust, instead of fruit
Chewed bitter ashes, which the offended taste
With spattering noise rejected.”
The most insidious meme of consumer capitalism is the pernicious idea that you, the individual, deserve only the best and should never settle for anything. This ignoble lie has been repeated so many times that the infectious canker of it has infested every last form of human enterprise and interaction. Not content to merely infantilize adults into mindless consumers of the latest and most novel “products,” the rot has subsumed their very perceptions of one another. Human relationships have now become commodities, driven by the same childish hedonistic impulse so carefully cultivated by a capitalist system predicated on mass consumption.
Earlier this week, traitor and psychopath “Buffalo Bill” Manning was sentenced to serve between seven and thirty-five years at Ft. Leavenworth prison for leaking government secrets. These secrets reveal that our country does, in fact, conduct war and diplomacy.
Attentionwhore progressives have begun the process of formally canonizing this treasonous tranny; the process will likely be fast-tracked due to his trendy sexual issues. In fact, a super-duper brave Icelandic dyke has gone so far as to nominate PFC Tuck-dick for a Nobel Peace Prize.
I would rather Obama receive the award. Again.
Derived from our studies in economic theory as well as our experiences in the real world, Peak Negro describes the point in time when the maximum rate of Negro accommodation is reached, after which all metrics of human civilization are expected to enter terminal decline.
It is no coincidence that the Hubbert curve resembles something else.
The consumption of a civilization’s surplus wealth by its worst elements grows over time until finally the civilization’s economic surplus is depleted. With the end of surplus, easy living, the lumpenprole grows hungry and (more) violent, and civil conflict results.
While geopolitics and economic finagling can disrupt this correlation, it amounts to a prolonging of the inevitable. As wry intellectuals of a previous age once said, naturam expellas furca, tamen usque recurret.
You must first crack the egg.
Credit goes to Graaaaaagh for coining the term, as well as for introducing me to the original concept.
While my fellow travelers are doing some amazing work both online and in meatspace, there are those of us at TRS that feel more could and should be done to seize the decline of the West. Why should we content ourselves with simply riding the tiger; why not work to aim the beast in a direction of our choosing?
From numerous discussions upon the subject was born Anti-Prometheism (Anti-Pro or Apro for short), a new and exciting intellectual frontier for my brothers to conquer.
The ultimate goal of this project is to weaken Western Civilization through the support and advancement of Liberal “progress” beyond the society’s tolerances, particularly within the United States. Push the idiotic narrative to such extremes, push the general population so far that for them reaction becomes blunt necessity, and not merely intellectual convenience.

Perhaps this project will strike many of my readers as being too radical (hare-brained) a means for achieving our desired reactionary ends. Why in the world should someone seek to create more of what they wish to destroy? How does one hope to kill Liberalism by making it stronger?
Let me begin by stating that I believe everyone reading this article will at least share my desire for a more orderly and prosperous society than what currently exists in the West today. With that said, my criticisms and considerations are mainly directed at libertarians.
I should preface that I myself have been a libertarian since 2007 or so. I supported Ron Paul in 2008 and would have liked to have seen him get the GOP nomination at least in 2012. Besides that I have read, watched and studied libertarian ideology since then, so don’t believe a return criticism that can be leveled at me is, “he just doesn’t understand libertarianism!” In fact, it is my understanding of the subject that informs these criticisms.
Libertarians desire a society that has more personal liberty, economic freedom and less “nanny state” molestation of the individual. These are indeed admirable goals, but their ways of achieving these are mistaken. Many think this can be done through either nonviolence and the non-aggression principle, or a sort of Fabian philosophical drift.
Seeing nothing new under the sun, I’ve come to think, as The Joker put it, “that is the one rule you’ll have to break to know the truth.” To paraphrase him, the only sensible way to live in this world and achieve your goals is not through the absence of rules(ers), but by not allowing everyone to decide on the rules.
Among my supposed “fellow travelers,” one finds a recurrent theme: the cultural/economic system known as “Capitalism” is almost universally considered an ideal means toward achieving true human progress.
Some theorists venerate Capitalism as a culmination of human action, the apotheosis of society; others regard it as an amiable, though sometimes amoral and conflicting, system for achieving social ends; but almost all regard it as a necessary means for achieving the goals of mankind, a means to be ranged against the dopey and/or murderous “public sector” and often succeeding in competitions of wits with their peers (and little else).
With the rise of Democracy, the identification of Capitalism with society has been redoubled, until it is common to hear sentiments expressed which violate virtually every tenet of reason and common sense, such as “Everything you love you owe to capitalism.” The useful collective term “individual” has enabled an ideological camouflage to be thrown over the Capitalistic realities of a Postmodern West, a Geist without a Zeit.
Drive through most any town in the United States, and you will notice a recurrent theme, our societal leitmotif: at least one street (usually several) blighted by, sacrificed to, consumptive postmodernism.
Large and gaudy signs, unimaginative architecture, mass-produced imagery, welfare disguised as diversionary hourly make-work (Now hiring 4th assistant manager!). All of this designed for the singular, mechanical, amoral purpose of pandering already obsolescent shit to an ever lower common denominator.
You say “Capitalism,” I say “autophagy.”
NOT PICTURED: a cock or hamburger (same thing) in this liberal’s mouth.
It is a close-enough representation nonetheless.
BTW, the hamster pictured above relocated to the cranium after first being placed up the liberal host’s ass. True story. Don’t judge him, you fucking oppressor.
FACT: A true right-winger will be nearly indistinguishable from an internet troll at first blush.
