14 Warning Signs of Nothing in Particular
In 2003, an article appeared in the Secular Humanist magazine Free Inquiry titled “Fascism Anyone?” (editor’s note: this link requires a paid subscription to Free Inquiry, the full text can be found for free here) This article, which has since been attributed to a “Dr. Laurence Britt, political scientist/scholar,” detailed the “14 Warning Signs of Fascism” in an attempt to reduce Fascism to a set of commonly shared characteristics by which the determination could be made whether or not a given individual, movement, or government in our modern world was indeed Fascist, or on its way towards Fascism. And this article has proven largely successful, with Dr Laurence Britt being cited repeatedly across the internet in a variety of mediums along with his article in order to reveal the Fascism lurking in the wind, threatening to corrupt our very way of life and lead us all into ruin. But the question is, should this article about the so-called Warning Signs of Fascism really be given so much stock in its validity? This is the question I will be discussing here today, digging into the truth behind the man, the article and the “Warning Signs of Fascism.”
You don’t want to get caught in the middle of The Happening with a pair of twink-legs, do you? What will you do when the hoards of transqueermosexuals descend on your poor, unsuspecting rural neighborhood demanding all the equality and body-glitter your people have to offer, if you don’t have the upper-body strength to fend them off? Being an edgy cool-bro isn’t going to keep your cheeks tight when the youths come to culturally-enrich your ass. So, to prepare your body for what’s to come, here’s TRS’s top 3 tips on how to LIFT WEIGHTS LIKE A FUCKING FASCIST.
This article is my attempt to start an open dialogue with libertarians in the same vein as Darth Stirner’s “Fascist Libertarianism” article.
I also see a potential alliance and compatibility between occidental traditionalists and libertarians; at least, those of a more minarchist persuasion. Google analytics and social networking tends to support this idea.
It is my intent to argue that the liberty so many seek will be better achieved within a more TRS narrative. That even if you do not fully agree or wish to reflect on such a matter, extenuating circumstances and a growing Fifth Column moves towards forcing your hand one way or another.
Today’s subject comes from totalfascism.
TL;DR: A brave youtuber produces an eight-minute video preaching against the evils of authoritarianism; Total Fascism’s Andrew Anglin responds with a brilliant circling of wagons.
Anglin’s response was a bit excessive, but the request for a Skype debate was nevertheless pure genius.
Fact is, a youtuber that produces trivial videos for the fedora demographic would be utterly trounced in a debate against a well-researched and dedicated ideologue like Anglin.
The philosophical gap between Libertarianism and Fascism is surprisingly thin, given that they are essentially diametrically opposed ideologies. What the split truly comes down to is not so much a matter of whether or not Caucasians can handle living in a minarchist state without devolving into tribal-warfare, but whether or not we can do it without inviting everyone else in and committing cultural suicide. White people have an inexplicably vehement desire to raise the living standards of savages to the Caucasian level of affluence, even to our own detriment. Some even build entire academic careers on the development and expansion of complex moral theories that not only justify such altruistic behavior, but demand it.
“Onward and upward, Whitopia awaits!”
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.
A good frenemy of mine recently pointed out that we here at The Right Stuff should not take ourselves so seriously all the time. I find myself agreeing. I fucking love to hate you, Suss.
Sometimes, things get a bit too esoteric and combative both at the blog and our secret online forums/moon base. Even a Darwinian Ultra-Royalist like myself can become drained by the constant critique and debate. There are simply too many people who need to go fuck themselves. It makes one’s head spin.
While our work continues to attract considerable interest, the fact remains that Western society is not at a point where TRS propaganda can be put into practice. ‘Murca is simply not austere enough for it’s Golden Dawn. Yet.
Until me and my black shirts are introducing Occupussy skulls to truncheons, it’s certainly rational for one to afford a few moments of unguarded humor.
Which brings me to the subject for today’s Reactionary whimsy.
Moly doesn’t mean to encourage pathetic children to commit suicide, either.
Here at The Right Stuff we’re always tearing things down and burning bridges. I figured I’d try to write a hopeful article that reaches out to potential right-wing allies and proposes a solution — an article with a positive vision for change. Well, at least it’s as positive as one can be in an article that recommends interning large groups of Americans. I see a potential alliance and compatibility between occidental traditionalists and libertarians. Maybe this is a bridge too far, but it’s really the only way forward for the right.
Creativity, innovation, free actors, decentralization, free markets — it’s all great stuff. This point is granted; spontaneous order is the best. But not always. Sometimes there are extenuating circumstances.
Drastic measures are required. We’re too far gone now. A small elite always rules over the herd, and this elite has the power to mold public opinion. We must become the elite, by any means necessary. Martial law is probably required, and that means the imposition of a fascist leader’s arbitrary will.
- Leftism (liberalism) seeks the enervation and eventual destruction of human existence.
- Actual Rightism (Reaction) ultimately desires authority.
- Any idea or movement that ceases promoting authority will always, ultimately collapse into leftism.
These are important, fundamental principles I believe my fellow reactionaries and anti-liberals need to internalize, lest we find ourselves following the same unfortunate (and predictable) path of the libertarian movement.
(Give it two more years, and PorcFest will be identical to an Occupussy rally.)
Accepting the axioms above requires that one re-align their understanding of historical narrative. For instance…
Aberrant societies like the Soviet Union are not par for the liberal course. In fact, leftist memes rotted the authoritarian, inherently right-wing Communist state from the inside-out. Gorbachev was not a Lenin or Stalin, and the Soviet Union that fell was not the Soviet Union that was willing to holodomor and gulag and purge to achieve it’s ends (partly why it fell in the first place).
(Yes, it is laughably retarded when people call themselves “Communist” while promoting liberal emptiness. Libertarians make better use of the Marxian dialectic, imho.)
It makes little sense expecting liberalism to logically result in Fascism or Communism. I mean seriously, who expects a Stalin or Hitler to emerge from the feministing bitches and their fat, cucked, neckbearded betas?
Authority, power, domination is the desired outcome of a sane society, and only collapses when it is poisoned by liberalism’s perverted worship of all things weak and pathetic.
In contrast, the left’s end goal is human extinction. All liberalism’s talk of oppression and equality, and their condemnation of the evils of privilege results in this embrace of death.
