If you’ve been paying attention, what you are about to read should not surprise you.
British Philosopher and self-proclaimed “futurist” (read: useless, overeducated, disconnected net negative on societal resources) David Pearce penned an article that drew attention from lefty Gawker science rag io9. The article, entitled “Reprogramming Predators” is part of his “Blueprint for a Cruelty Free World” series, which aims to eliminate, in a way which he believes to be realistic, literally *all* forms of suffering from this Earth. Including suffering by non-sentient animals, which puts him on a whole new level of liberalism.
How does he intend to do this? Why, by genetically altering wild animals to eliminate all predatory instincts. Pearce gets upset when wild animals kill one another, so he desires to put an end to the entire concept of darwinism. Ironic.
Some people seem to be upset that a porn star is encouraging women to have sex with illegal immigrants. Honestly, I was triggered as well, but not because my race is threatened by some dark-colored penises in some light-colored holes.
While it is interesting that pornography is now branding itself “progressive,” this only reinforces my argument that what is supposedly a philosophy is really a sales pitch.
On March 24th, 2014, a pair of African American women hailing from Towson University (lol Matt Heimbach) won the Cross Examination Debate Association’s national Championship at Indiana University. It was a first for formal college debate–a pair of African American females winning a major national debate by a 7-4 vote.
In theory libertarianism is all about capitalism and the free market, both of which are dominated by white males. Men make more money than women. Women are terrible at economics and math. Despite much of society’s resources dedicated to the task of gender egalitarianism, women still fail at economics and math. This is an empirical fact. It has been shown that most women are unfamiliar with even the most basic economic concepts needed to make saving and investment decisions.
Forget the grammar in the picture–focus on the message. It isn’t enough that society bends over backwards in order to accommodate women. Third-wave feminism is about acknowledging women’s subordination, both in terms of agency and intellectual/physical ability. The acknowledgment isn’t explicit. They’ll deny it endlessly. Rather, it’s implicit, and the way it comes out is through constant over-compensation.
It is a good idea when analyzing any social phenomenon or institution to look at how it is viewed in the present context by various groups in society and ask why they hold the view that they do. This can be a revealing exercise. If we know about the ideology of a certain group, and we know their general opinion of a certain institution, we can put them together and perhaps see something in that institution that we may have missed if we were to rely entirely on our own reactions, perspectives and prejudices. (MFW Standpoint theory.)
When it comes to capitalism today in the West, we can safely say that it is viewed in a poor light by the liberal intellectual establishment, commonly referred to as the Brahmins. If you are a former libertarian turned reactionary, I urge you to put aside whatever perspective bias you may be suffering from after years of imbibing Rothbard and living inside the libertarian echo-chamber. Pick up the NY Times and see what people with actual power in society today think of capitalism. It’s an interesting contrast from the endless praise and even outright worship it gets from the bow-tie/fedora sect.
