Musings of a Biopunk

Pontificating upon the etymology or usage history of a word to bolster an argument about the concept contained therein is a tired and wankerish rhetorical strategy that demands of one no more wisdom than that needed to search Wiktionary and can, reductio ad absurdum, lead one to such revelatory insights on the human condition as equating maternality with paedophilia (from the Greek paidóphilos, literally “loving children”). The page on that site for “monarchy” does make a good starting point, though, for simply introducing the topic and for me to crystallise some thoughts on the matter. Again, from Greek, “[the] only power/authority”.

This has both theological and physical ramifications. Monarchy died with Christianity, and the two are not incidental to each other. The divine right of kings was, indeed, a given for much of history in the Occident. Yet, one struggles these days to find a single person who believes in “divine” anything. I do not. Brandon Adamson does not. Most of the people bemoaning the loss of religion as a social force – do not. This is curious. Religion is one of those peculiar avenues of human behaviour, perhaps the most peculiar, in which the faithless will speak of wanting to believe things almost as fervently as the faithful will speak of believing them in actu. Why should it be like this?

Black Pigeon Speaks, among many, would have you believe that religion (and I think he means orthodoxical religion, which I shall touch on later) is coming back in force and that atheism is in decline. He refers to disparities in the fertility rate and “worldwide” population trends. The “worldwide” part immediately puts one in mind of Africa’s population explosion, though. Yes, that will produce lots of religious people. Does anyone really care though, honestly? If you live in Britain, or any other developed country, the triteness of this is stark. In almost twenty years, I have yet to meet a person under seventy who takes religious belief seriously. If genetics, childhood indoctrination, or both were really the decisive causative factor(s) in the prevalence of religious belief in society, how does he imagine religion began to decline in the first place? He apparently does not think it was because of atheists’ outbreeding theists. If he knows anyone who is now irreligious but began as a Christian, and had theist ancestors, he also cannot believe that childhood exposure to religion exerts some insuperable force that prevents one from leaving the faith. To the extent that religiosity is genetically inherited, it will be many genes – not an on-off switch but a bell curve of different behavioural phenotypes begotten by the different relative frequencies of the genes. There will always be a “hard core” of people far to the right of curve, but it is no more certain that their children will be thus than it is that two people with IQs of 160 will have a child with an IQ of 160, owing to regression towards the mean. So people will continue to leave the faith. This will continue for as long as we live in technologically developed societies. Religion, at least in the orthodoxical, supernaturalistic way most Westerners think of it, is a response to humans’ consciousness of their mortality. You do not need to pray for your next meal to find you – you can just go to Aldi.

The relationships between biology, culture, ideologies, and technologies are complex and not completely understood. It is best to make an analogy. Take the Industrial Revolution as your starting point. We watered the seed-laden soil of human ideation with our technology. Out of it grew many, many ideas that could not exist without the technology. Some were odious. Others were not – and that last is why I cannot get behind the NRx tendency of treating every innovation after [insert date here] as some incalculable evil. Then the plants decompose back into the earth, replenish it, and the cycle begins anew as the ideologies reinforce the technologically mediated behaviours ingrained in our biology.

Some notions were lost, too. Among them was religion, as outlined above. So, as to monarchy; I do not see how you could have a secular monarchy. Even if you could, the internet now provides a brilliantly accessible tool for political critique and subversion, as people in these circles know well, so that would have to go, too. I suppose if you wanted to be really imaginative about it, you could envision a kind of archaeofuturist society where the masses sacralise monarchs for what they perceive as magic, any sufficiently advanced technology being indistinguishable from magic and so on. But I do not think archaeofuturism, as cool as I happen to find the steampunk aesthetic, is actually possible, practical, or desirable. It would basically be a reduplicate of the conditions Russia was in just before communism, but with an even more glaring disparity, which did not end well.

Leftwing economists are not wrong when they say inequality was a contributing factor to the development of communism. It was one of many factors, and inequality per se is an inevitability of existence (neither good nor bad) – it is just a matter of degree. But if economic Marxism were invented today, would it catch on, even granting the nonexistence of the internet? Most people’s (exceptions duly noted) interest in such things cannot be stirred into being without massive social strife.

So for true neo-monarchists, the only option seems to be a straight-up returning to mediaevalism – going back not just one but many, many centuries. If that is inevitable, as some claim, we will either end up in exactly the same position we are in now given another few centuries, or if not we will remain in that state until God gets so bored with us that he just blows us the fuck away. Hell, it is probably what I would do. I am concerned with the continuation of Europeans and the European world order as a civilisational force (it is why I have chosen to study the classics), as well as all the SWPL amenities and aesthetic preferences I delight in. But I am also concerned with the long term – millions of years hence, even if it requires phenomenal optimism (which I lack) to imagine our lasting that long. Some will wonder why I do not simply jettison racialism. I do not, because racialism is not even an idea. It is not nearly as ephemeral as that. It is much older even than monarchy. Even at peak brainwashing it persists, and there are few things it does not inform in some manner – consciously and subconsciously.

But, backing up a bit, some will object to my characterisation of religion as simplistic. After all, there is abundant evidence, anecdotal and scientific, that there is more to religion than giving one a framework by means of which to avoid facing up to the Great Oblivion. For instance, it presents the society or community with a moral paradigm. It is not true that people need the threat of hell to be good; many religions do not have a concept of eternal damnation. Indeed, some of them do not even have gods. I think ignorance of this fact stems from not recognising a distinction between (broadly) most occidental religions in contrast to oriental ones. The latter tend to be orthopraxic – strictly speaking, one does not “believe” in Buddhism; one practises it. This is also why secular Buddhism sounds quite reasonable to many but “Christian atheism” sounds risible to everyone except the tiny number of people who actually call themselves that. That is the other component to religion: narratives of action. I can attest from experience that the vast majority of people (not I, but I admit to being a freak) really do need a kind of narrative to avert existential crisis. It is for precisely that reason that people have developed what some are calling “secular religions” – the religions of politics, consumption, and Evenliftingbreaux. This is why now I think I can understand what Mouthy Buddha and others were saying when they described the project of white nationalism as a kind of religious narrative or cult. The principal differences between a religion and a cult are the number of adherents and the time it has existed; the principal difference between a cult and an ideology is subject matter. Namely, the former, a cult, tends to be preoccupied with matters of the self and various stupid ways of “transcending” it (see scientology), whereas the latter is concerned with matters of the world and how to appropriately shepherd the world’s misfits and mid-wits into its standard of rectitude (see neo-progressivism, communism, and house-on-the-prairieactionaries). Some political movements really are able to incorporate all these characteristics that people find appealing, and for some white nationalism is so essential to their being that they really would not know what to do with themselves if the project were ever completed. And this is what most atheists get wrong. People do not reject religion because of its illogic. Human beings do not and never will understand logic.

Indeed, as Maria Vladimirovna observed, “A nation without a monarchy is like a body without a soul.” But the concept of the nation state is at most about three hundred and seventy years old anyway, and it has just about run its course. Some will call me a nihilist, and in a sense I am. I accept the existence of truth, beauty, and so on, but I believe their existence is predicated on the cognitions of humans, or at least the cognitions of sensate life. (I cannot say just humans. Hell, we know that some border collies can understand two-dimensional representations of real-world objects. Maybe with the intervention of some CRISPR or iterative embryo selection they will come to appreciate the Sistine Chapel as much as I.) But I do not hold these things to be God-given, and I have no confidence that people with radically different existential/philosophical opinions will ever reach compromise let alone agreement. What are the policy implications of this? I say we form the Borean Alliance or something similar to it, and allow the religification of politics to reach its conclusion: a geopolitical superblock unified by a handful of agreed-on principles, consisting of regional autonomous or partially autonomous “zones” largely free to have their own local policies. These will be the new borders: ideological, and perhaps experimental. It would also be a great opportunity to implement some Kirkegaardian evidence-based politics – scientifically testing the outcomes of policy in the field.

Ultimately, my take is biopunk rather than steampunk. Any interested community should make the effort to implement top-down eugenics programmes, thereby enhancing human potential and pushing human cognitive capacity to its limits – for a start. The trillion steps between now and then could be a subject for another essay (such as new or theoretical systems of government). As Nietzsche said, man must be overcome – we may as well do it ourselves before something else does.

Porky’s Pathological Altruism

porkys002bcopy

“I never seen so much wool. You could knit a sweater.”

So, on a nostalgic whim I decided to revisit the movie Porky’s (1981,) which I hadn’t seen since my childhood. Don’t ask me how I was ever allowed to watch this film as a kid. We had HBO in those days, and I was basically always off quietly doing my own thing by myself (when I was six I spent weeks attempting to build an airplane out of cardboard boxes and other random crap in the basement.) Anyhow, I pretty much watched whatever I wanted, and no one cared. It was the early 80’s after all…when toy machine guns still looked real and helicopter parenting hadn’t yet taken off.

Porky’s is a screwball coming of age teen comedy set in a 1950’s Florida town. I’m not going to write a full review here, but it’s another of those “80’s nostalgia for the 50’s” movies that were so prevalent at that time. The film basically chronicles the misadventures of a group of horny teenage guys. A lot of the gags haven’t really aged well, but there are a few memorable funny scenes if you can appreciate bottom of the barrel toilet humor. The movie also is notable for featuring a young Kim Cattrall in one of her sexiest roles.

The most annoying thing about this movie is the way they shoe horn in an unnecessary anti-racist subplot. The way it is done comes off as utterly forced. It’s also ironic in how in its anti-racist message it manages to reinforce stereotypes of Jews, Blacks and southern Whites by caricaturing pretty much every type of person in the most archetypal depiction possible. Even the “racist” teen in the film conforms to every cliche. Of course he couldn’t be “racist” because of something like noticing patterns of behavior that he perceives to appear disproportionately among certain groups or due to a string of unpleasant encounters or experiences when engaging with hostile people from other races. No, in the film, the character’s racism is a result of him being physically and verbally abused by his drunken white trash father. Give me a break. Even openly anti-white propaganda films like “American History X” at least made some effort to illustrate some of the legitimate concerns of whites that lead them down this path. Then again, Porky’s is not meant to be a serious film on any level, so it’s understandable but also kind of a boner killer that this was thrown in to an otherwise fun movie.

There is a significance to why I bring up the anti-racist subplot of Porky’s though. The director and writer of Porky’s, Bob Clark felt he needed to make a point to take a swipe at the bogeyman of racist southern white rednecks. Tragically, Clark and his son were killed by an illegal alien drunk driver in 2007 in California. The very sort of white nativist people he railed against as dangerous and misguided were the ones advocating the restrictive immigration policies that could have prevented his own child’s death (sounds familiar.)

From Wikipedia:

Clark and his son, Ariel Hanrath-Clark, 22, were killed in a head-on car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles on the morning of April 4, 2007. The crash occurred when an SUV crossed the median and struck Clark’s Infiniti I30, causing the closure of the highway for eight hours. Police determined that the SUV’s driver, Hector Velazquez-Nava, had a blood alcohol level of three times the legal limit and was driving without a license. He initially pleaded not guilty to two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter, but changed his plea to no contest in August. On October 12, 2007, Velasquez-Nava was sentenced to six years in prison under the terms of a plea agreement. In addition, he may face deportation to his native Mexico, as he entered and was living in the United States illegally.

Wow, 6 years and he may face deportation. One wonders what it actually does take to get deported, if the above horrific crime only results in a maybe.

In Bob Clark’s quest to virtue signal and show he was “one of the good whites,” did he kill the wrong pig? Porky’s a fun throwback to both the 80’s and the 50’s. It spawned a couple of shitty sequels like Porky’s: The Next Day, and Porky’s Revenge. It’s a shame Clark never to see Porky’s Pathological Altruism, the final chapter he wrote for himself and his (our) descendants.

The recent controversy over “fake news” has somewhat reminded me how much closer I am to people in the rationalist / skeptic community than some elements (not all) of the AltRight on certain issues. If not for my skepticism of the prospects (or desirability) of multiculturalism in Western countries and the long term viability of “warm body” democracy in general, I would have much more in common with people like Amazing Atheist and Shoe0nhead than I would the average AltRight person. They’re not totally aligned with me across the board, but I find them to be a breath of fresh air sometimes. In fact, I wish there were more people like them because they approach topics logically and critically. Even though they may not reach the same ideological conclusions, the atheist/rationalist personalities often help to lead people down the path of skepticism and empiricism, which can be applied to all kinds of different issues relating to identity and the framework of our society.

There’s no question that the mainstream media is liberally using the “fake news” narrative in an attempt to discredit many legitimate news and opinion outlets, some of which are predominantly opinion sites to begin with (such as Unz.com) and deal mainly with commentary and analysis rather than news reporting to begin with. That’s why the establishment media’s “definitive lists” should be viewed as skeptically as the sites in question, since the lists themselves were ideologically constructed.

That being said, I actually *do* see tons people in the AltRight (and especially Alt-Lite) fall for obviously made up news stories. They’d frequently share tons of these stories on Facebook uncritically, even when a brief examination of the site or facts uncovered after a quick Google search would easily debunk whatever wild claims were being made. It’s fine to say the media lies, but it’s clear most people aren’t even curious/critical enough to do basic checking. To make matters worse, when people share these bogus news items, they usually accompany them with some kind of preachy triumphalist rant about something finally being exposed and confirming the essence of their worldview, with a lengthy comment thread filled with people spiraling into outrage and shock at the horror of the “news” story, until finally someone about 20 comments into the frenzy says “guys, that’s a fake news site.”

The Alt-Lite has been entirely consumed with propagating utterly bonkers conspiracies like “pizzagate” without a shred of credible evidence. For an example of the sort of thing which passes for proof for these people, watch a few of these videos which have thousands of upvotes and “believer” comments but contain absolutely nothing substantive. It’s all wild speculation, most of which doesn’t hold up to common sense scrutiny. Take this video of “screams” from Comet Ping Pong, that is somehow supposed to insinuate something horrific is taking places, but chances are if you’ve ever been to a Chuck E. Cheese in your life or any place where children are playing and going buck wild…you’ll here some yelling and screaming. To a person who thinks critically, none of this stuff is interesting at all except from a psychological perspective. It is horrifying only in the sense of witnessing seemingly normal people transform into an irrational lynch mob, whipped up into a frenzy over some of the flimsiest, rinkydink evidence ever concocted. There was a whole video talking about the logos used on these websites and how they were supposedly cryptic symbols for all kinds of nefarious sexual activity and demonry, but these were mostly just generic logos with hearts, triangles etc…the kind of basic bitch, stock clipart logos that you pay someone 5 dollars to make on Fiverr if you’re too lazy to spend a few minutes online creating them yourself. This is not to say that the allegations being made by these internet sleuths are definitively false. Maybe they’ll turn out to be true (by all means, investigate!) but the evidence presented so far has been underwhelming and not particularly persuasive enough to justify ruining innocent people’s lives and harming the reputations of seemingly banal local businesses.

With people like Cernovich and Paul Joseph Watson burning bridges with AltRight, hopefully they will take some of their loony conspiracy audience with them. The same people who are so squeamish they think jokingly giving Roman salutes poisons our movement, are somehow under the impression that InfoWars has a respectable reputation among ordinary educated people. This same crowd disavows some of us for daring to have racial in-group preferences…yet they think promoting Satanic panics, UFO conspiracies, Sandy Hook conspiracies, and pseudo-scientific health quackery won’t repel useful and intelligent people from their movement.

The epidemic of “fake news” itself isn’t a remarkable issue. It’s just blackhat internet marketers trying to make a quick buck with clickbait articles that easily go viral due to their outrageous bombshell claims. The astronomical number of people who appear to be susceptible to fabricated news items and circulate them uncritically is the real story. It’s more of an argument for why most people probably aren’t mentally equipped to vote than a case for news curation. That’s why I’m in favor of “fedora nationalism” (non-MRA variety) which given the available evidence of observable human behavior, is probably more of pipe dream than Calexit, the Northwest Territorial Imperative, or even the plot of Bionic Commando.

One last note…

For crying out loud, it’s *eminent* domain, not “imminent” domain! Sorry, I have been wanting to get that off my chest for a while.

You Can’t Salute That on Television!

white people giving Roman salutes…the horror!

Confession time… When I entered the pro-white scene a few years ago, I never went through any kind of Esoteric Hitlerism phase. I’ve never been much of a WW2 enthusiast or had any kind of fetish for Nazi era iconography or memorabilia. I never got into holocaust revisionism or any of that. It simply never interested me at all, and I don’t find it to be relevant to our present conflict, which is whether or not white people have a right to act in our own collective interests (we do, and we will.) I’m not a big fan of countries’ that waste their newly established productive nationalism by putting their most patriotic soldiers through the meat grinder in unnecessary wars. Both the Germans and Italians opted for military adventures that were ill-advised, even if some were justified. On that front, Franco’s Spain was a much more admirable example, as he was remarkably able to keep the Spanish out of World War II (for the most part,) despite the nation’s proximity to some of the bloodiest large-scale warfare the world had ever seen. While Germany and Italy were completely destroyed, Franco’s regime survived and thrived until his death in 1975.

To the extent I maintain any interest in the WW2 historical period at all, it is largely limited to an appreciation for the aesthetics of Italian fascism and futurism, which mostly consists of things most conservative traditionalists or right wing reactionary types hate and consider degenerate. That’s right. I love all that brutalist architecture and futurist / modern art. Go ahead and cringe if you want. My ideal city (strictly aesthetically speaking) would probably resemble the fictitious fascist city depicted in “Conquest of the Planet of the Apes.” (minus the animal cruelty.)

Hell, I even like the creepy and weird performance art of today. When conservatives were expressing their moral outrage and disgust at Marina Abramovic’s “spirit cooking,” I was thinking “Gee, if Hillary is actually into any of this freaky shit, she’s cooler than I thought.” It’s not the sort of thing I’m interested in to be honest, but I like other weird stuff, so I understand the appeal of weird and creepy things in general.

Anyway, the reason I mention all this is that it’s a mistake the media often makes in assuming that anyone who is pro-white is some kind of Nazi fetishist (though I don’t have a problem with anyone who is.) For most, the road here is simply a realization that as a white person, a society becoming less European demographically would be (and has become) increasingly hostile to me and an undesirable place for people like me to live, period. We pay attention to and process what non-whites say, understand their plans are for us in the future, and we have decided to organize accordingly in collective resistance to the premature chalk outline they’ve drawn up for us. We’re just not interested, thank you.

A bunch of lame and uptight people threw a fit because some individuals decided to jokingly give Roman salutes at the NPI gathering in Washington DC. They were concerned this somehow makes us look bad to normies. I think this is nonsense. Older boomers and some Gen X types might get freaked out by this sort of thing, but many young people don’t care. World War II and the Nazis are ancient history to them and a big joke. I hate listening to these nervous nellies and concern trolls go on and on  “Looks like the AltRight just blew it and shot themselves in the foot by giving the press ammunition.”  The truth is young people just don’t give a shit. It reminds me of how republicans and conservatives are still always calling people “communists” as if it’s still 1965 and anyone still cares or feels stigmatized by being labeled a “commie” besides old boomer cuckservatives. These tired labels are losing their power over people, which is why the media is going into hysterical mode: “What? didn’t you hear us? they are nazis! What do you mean it doesn’t bother you? We’ll keep saying it louder!! Fascists!!!”

No one cares about being called racist anymore. More than anything, it’s important that people see us having fun and misbehaving. We want to shatter the mirror maze of social taboos, not merely stumble around it, constantly bumping into the walls. Desensitizing people to taboo symbols is crucial to destabilizing the existing moral framework.  Sure people like Ramzpaul are right when they say the media wants to associate us with “evil nazis,” but what if people got so used to seeing fascist symbolism and gestures thrown about casually that the sight of them no longer triggered a negative emotional response? We cannot stop the press from associating us with Nazis. They can frame anything we say or do within that context, but we have the power to make a mockery of that association and expose it for the bogeyman that it is.

My message to squeamish people both inside and outside is this:

Look at you timid people, afraid of something so innocuous as a Roman salute! a hand gesture! Why would you like to be like them? What kind of pathetic way is that to live? Afraid of making offensive jokes or expressing yourself in ways that might get you in trouble? Why not question the moral authority that’s been imposed on you in its entirety, rather than just the aspects that relate to drugs or sexuality? Wouldn’t you rather be like us? We’re the free spirits. We say what we want. We stand by what we believe is true even in the face of an onslaught of hostility from all directions, even within. We don’t much care what people think about us, because we don’t crave acceptance in the world you live in, which you don’t realize is actually a prison. It’s you that should be wanting to hang out with us, not the other way around. Whether we want to get drunk and do Roman salutes with exotic women or if we feel like playing catch with swastika shaped frisbees at the beach while listening to Charles Manson records on a sunny Saturday afternoon, we’ll do it. We don’t have to justify ourselves to anyone. If you wonder why we don’t seem to care that our exuberant indulgences and “provocative” statements potentially scare away timid people, it’s because we’ve determined our way is preferable to conforming to a life spent meekly tip-toeing on eggshells. Feel free to justify yourself to us if you want in. Otherwise keep walking.

The Safety Pin Dance

blacksquare
Russian stamp bearing Kazimir Malevich’s “Black Square,” a painting which x-rays discovered an inscription that said “negroes battling in a cave.”

There’s a retarded new social media virtue signaling fad where people change their profile pictures to just a black space to protest Trump being elected president. Some people are also wearing safety pins to show their solidarity with designated victim groups which are supposedly threatened by Trump’s recent electoral victory. What these gestures signify in actuality is that those participating have learned absolutely nothing from this election cycle (and developments in the years building up to it.) Anyone partaking in these pathetically self righteous protests is demonstrating a lack of self reflection. They’re merely advertising to everyone that they have an impaired ability to process any societal reverberations outside their own echo chamber.

Here’s the thing, in case you weren’t aware, this kind of “change my profile picture in support of the latest cause du jour” virtue signaling and #BringBackOurGirls styled hashtag activism has become an eyeroll inducing joke. This hysterically contrived outrage and the accompanying transparently token gestures are in fact part of the reason Trump won.  A lot of people are sick of this kind of cornball bullshit. “LGBT people” have little to nothing to even fear in a Trump administration. He isn’t a social conservative. He has openly said gay marriage is the law of the land. Trump even said he didn’t care what bathroom trannies used. Peter Thiel, who is gayer than a 3 dollar bill, is on Trump’s white house transition team and was a key speaker at the convention. It’s true that Mike Pence is anti-gay (the whole electro-shock thing is pretty retro,) but Trump probably must have felt he had to pick him to throw a bone to religious conservatives. He got some bad advice on that one if you ask me (I hoped he would have chosen Jim Webb,) but then again he won so what do I know…It’s not like anyone was going to give Trump credit for being liberal on these issues anyway ( I can almost guarantee that many people rocking these safety pins are totally ignorant of Trump’s stances on these issues.)Trump’s positions on social issues as well as his anti-war views, his opposition to free trade and outsourcing were all reasons he was accused by his conservative opponents as being a democrat in disguise during the republican primaries. In many ways he was, and that is precisely what made him appealing!

Some of the people out there calling for resistance and revolution have clearly not given much brain power to the idea. I’m not sure that agitating for civil war would be a wise decision for them. Whom do these people think the police are going to side with? People like Deray and Triggly Puff?  Do they really believe the military is going to align themselves with blue haired, safety pin wearing Tumblr freaks and feral black rioters? That kind of vanguard might be sufficient if all you’re doing is burning down your own cities that no one else cares if you destroy, but it’s not going to catapult your revolution very far outside your hugbox. The misinformed and violent BlackLivesMatter protests as well as the endless stream of social justice street theater have contributed to a backlash which partially manifested in the form of Donald Trump being elected president. And yet, the same cast of characters are doubling down on anti-white sentiment and intersectionality! They haven’t thought through to what the next backlash they’re inviting may escalate to.

Instead maybe try some self reflection. Attempt to piece together what led us here. It’s like, what did you think would happen when you encouraged all these different ethnic groups to identify tribally and assert their ethnic group interests? What did you think would happen when you constantly promoted “white guilt” and insisted every white person “examine their whiteness” and check his/her white privilege. Trump won white millennials, white women and white men. In awakening white people to a conscious racial awareness, you’ve unconsciously awakened them to a realization that they too have group interests and may need to assert them in order to maintain an environment that isn’t hostile to them. Safety pins won’t offer much protection for anti-white activists from the future they’re unleashing, but they might generate a few laughs along the way.
