Politics / The Alt Right (Alternative Right)
« on: October 29, 2016, 12:39:46 AM »
The Alt Right rose, then tried to figure out what it was. It knew a general direction, which was that it said the stuff that the mainstream Right wanted to but could not and still keep its jobs, but beyond that, it was confused.

It arose from a mishmash of philosophies. The New Right, Traditionalism, White Nationalism, Paleoconservatives, Neoreaction, Nietzschean conservatives and Dark Enlightenment met in a blender.

Hits all the major issues and cites enough stuff to keep you reading for weeks.

No one wants to admit that the modern lifestyle will have to be entirely restyled.

Added a new one: a Va/Per blend called "Miasma."

I view the Bible as literature. Like all spiritual works, it consists of philosophers writing down a compilation of knowledge.

It is very hard to argue that almost all of it did not come from the Greeks, Hindus and other pagan cultures in the middle east.

That does not invalidate any of its contents.

Philosophy / Introduction To Nihilism
« on: October 29, 2016, 12:32:38 AM »

Among the possibilities that scare humans the most, the potentiality of no meaning — no inherent values, no innate truths, and no possibility of accurate communication — unnerves us the most. It means that we are truly alone with nothing to rely on but ourselves for understanding this vast world and what we should do in it. This belief is called nihilism.

Nihilism rejects the ideas of universalism, rationalism and empiricism which have ruled the West for centuries. These ideas arise from our social impulses, or the desire to include others as a group and motivate them with what is perceived as objective truth.

Universalism holds that all people are essentially the same, and therefore that values are a matter of respecting the choices of each person, truth is what can be verified in a way a group can understand, and communication relies on words which have immutable meaning. Rationalism supposes that the workings our minds can tell us what is true in the world without testing, and implies universalism, or that the workings of our minds are all the same. Empiricism, now linked to its cousin logical positivism, states that truth is only found in observable and testable, replicable observations.

This address the confusion people have over nihilism, dark organizations and the black pill.

Obviously, at this time I cannot advocate such behavior as I have abandoned it, but the magic formula was:

1. Hydrate thoroughly, 15-30 ounces of water.
2. Drink at least two cups of strong coffee.
3. Take a shot of whisky (equivalent: 2-3 beers).
4. Load up your bong with:
 (a) 60% strong Cannabis Indica
 (b) 30% well-cured (not brick) Cannabis Sativa
 (c) 10% tobacco from a good cigarette (State Express or Dunhill)
5. Take two "rips" of that, finishing the whole bowl

After that, go outside. Consume nothing else. The tip about having a full stomach is good, and should probably occur between steps 1 and 2.

Humanity dominated nature, so now all our predators and parasites are within our species. Hillary Clinton is more destructive than your average ghetto criminal. Interesting.

Philosophy / Re: Is Belief a pre-requisite for existence.

Does a human being have to believe something to prove they exist?

They have to form thoughts, which are a type of belief, so: yes.

It has gone large because there was a need for it. The mainstream right failed to achieve anything and showed it was unwilling to fight. It has now been replaced.

This has not just widened the Overton window, but has mainstreamed ideas simply because they are suppressed by the Cathedral.

Thus begins the battle for the Alt Right to define itself...

I agree. She spoke for the elites when she identifies those of us who are not following the Cathedralist bandwagon as "Nazis." Now people have a choice: obey the herdmasters, or be seen as Nazis, which means that Nazism as symbol and concept is being vindicated and rehabilitated.

Trump has already achieved his victory by isolating the elite and then have their mouthpiece, animatronic zombie AIDS-ridden nanny grandma Hillary Clinton, tell everyone who is not on board with the elites that they are Nazis.

With changes afoot in Europe, a rightward drift has begun, and if the right can avoid starting hopeless wars and mass-murdering Jewish families, the trend will continue.

Philosophy / Re: Replace word "conservative" with "traditonalist"

Radical Traditionalism makes sense to me: societies need an essence, a reverent tradition, that they use when looking at both realist and supernatural possibilities.

Over the last 6k years, one type of society has been found to work well, and it is one based on that traditional outlook, which leads toward the four pillars.

Tobacco / The Metal Mixtures

Part of the journey into appreciation of the pipe as an activity — the familiarity, the rituals, the marking of time, the enjoyment — is to mix your own tobacco from pre-existing components. This can be great fun and a huge challenge. As part of that journey, I uncovered a number of mixtures which are both pleasant to smoke and economical. - The Metal Mixtures

Culture / Cultural Revolution
« on: August 19, 2016, 11:35:28 AM »
A reader writes:

I think there has to be some sort of cultural revolution too, which makes classical culture dominant again and turns it into the example that everyone strives to emulate.

That is the essence of Traditionalism: we are on an elevator, and we are either heading up or going down, and the elevator will not just stay paused at a floor.

We know what must be done politically, but this requires parallel revival in religion, culture and individual moral character. The question is what must be done first...

I suggest bootstrapping, which requires both an external and an internal force. We must decide as a culture that we want not only to fix problems, but to rise above the heights of the past, and also must protect this culture by gaining political control, which requires either abolishing the nation and seizing local areas, or seizing control of the nation -- which is ironically easier than the other option.
