So-called “post-modernity” is the summarization of the elements following our deconstruction of all things built on abstract thought. Post-modernity is the final frontier of human misery; The last miserable grasp for meaning in a path of desolation lain before the psyche of the Westerner. The Westerner hopes to gain a sense of belonging and identity by completely eliminating the structures left behind by his/her ancestors. Nihilism, gnostic atheism, cultural relativism, gender relativism, race relativism, anything that completely eliminates identification outside “consciousness”, is eagerly wielded like a torch in the hands of western civilization.
If it’s not already obvious, let it be known that I’m a staunch supporter of a Western Civilization with White Man at the helm. I am also a strong advocate for the identity and unity provided by Nationalism.
Perhaps not so obvious, perhaps surprisingly, I am not an advocate for White Nationalism.
I did not come to this stance easily. Certainly, the WN ideology rings true in their arguments that Whites are currently being selectively shamed for their pride, that modernism seeks the extinction or least marginalization of Whites in their insane drive for an idealized inferiority. Only a dishonest or bad-willed individual could seriously consider the idea of a non-White humanity without shuddering.
With that said, while those who advocate White Nationalism spot the correct enemy, they fail to properly advance from their analysis.
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.
Feminism and Western Civilization. What do?
The manosphere, a “reactionary” (lol) blogging counterculture that emerged against feminism, is a perfect example of a present day market failure. All of the free association afforded by the internet, and the demand for an anti-feminist culture produces blogs about picking up skanks and/or celebrating being a sullen asshole. The former is at least entertaining and educational, the latter is poison.
In the sullen asshole category is the Men Going Their Own Way movement. Here are bloggers dedicated to moralizing their fearful hatred of the Western vagina.
Objectivism, to me, is an ideology best compared to a brilliant child reared in a broken home. Good genetics, poor environment. What beauty results is forever crippled by the realization of what could have been.
Many today are content with simply bashing the Objectivist ideology; it is my intent to present to you, dear reader, a more somber narrative. This is because, to me, there exists no modern ideology more incomplete, and therefore more tragic, than this one.
“…The Americans’ ‘open-mindedness’, which is sometimes cited in their favor, is the other side of their interior formlessness. The same goes for their ‘individualism’. Individualism and personality are not the same: the one belongs to the formless world of quantity, the other to the world of quality and hierarchy. The Americans are the living refutation of the Cartesian axiom, ‘I think, therefore I am’: Americans do not think, yet they are. The American ‘mind’, puerile and primitive, lacks characteristic form and is therefore open to every kind of standardization” –Julius Evola
Individualism is a formless quantity, like water. The individual man can thus be seen as a single droplet.
