“Be that self which one truly is.”

Reclaiming the American Right Christopher Manion interviewed by Scott Horton

“The “clash of civilizations” is, in a very literal sense, a clash of God and Mammon. The Islamic revolutionaries are driven by a fanatical devotion to their god and the promises they believe he has made to them if only they take up arms on his behalf. The nations of the West are driven by an almost as fanatical devotion to Mammon, that is, to wealth, luxury, power, pleasure and privilege. Further, the culture of the West combines this unabashedly materialist ethos with rejection of strength and discipline in favor of a maternalistic emphasis on health, safety, “sensitivity”, “self-esteem”, “potential”, “personal growth”, “getting in touch with one’s inner child”, “feelings” and other concepts common to pop culture psychobabble. Of course, the socio-cultural ramifications of this is to create a society of weaklings, mediocrities and crybabies.”

  1. “health, safety, “sensitivity”, “self-esteem”, “potential”, “personal growth”, “getting in touch with one’s inner child”, “feelings” and other concepts common to pop culture psychobabble.”

    What do you see as faulty in such concepts (beyond puke-inducing phrasing); what do you propose as an alternative?

  2. All of these serve to create a cultural and social framework where personal strength, discipline and courage is devalued, and weakness and cowardice are encouraged. The end result is a society of self-pitying losers, cowards, and crybabies.

    The obsession with safety, security, and health, for instance, is a core component of the therapeutic state. “Sensitivity” is one of the shibboleths of political correctness as opposed to the older, more sensible “sticks and stones” approach. This is one of the reasons why fat folks are now not simply fat but “persons of size.” There’s nothing wrong with being fat, but being fat is being fat. Therapeutic culture promotes the idea of “self-esteem” for those who have done nothing to deserve it.

    Besides values of a political nature, I generally prefer the values of self-discipline, self-reliance, minding one’s own business, not being a parasite on others, stoicism, personal strength and resolve, critical and independent thinking, courage, honor, generosity to deserving others, intelligence, intuitiveness, merit, valor, and self-assertiveness. I generally respect people who display these characteristics, and am
    considerably less respectful towards people who don’t.

  3. “I generally prefer the values of self-discipline, self-reliance, minding one’s own business, not being a parasite on others, stoicism, personal strength and resolve, critical and independent thinking, courage, honor, generosity to deserving others, intelligence, intuitiveness, merit, valor, and self-assertiveness.”

    All these are certainly laudable traits, but what of the person who, due to natural constitution, is rather sensitive? How does he slay and excise that which weakens him? I agree that subsuming oneself in the modern cult of therapy is not a good idea for such a person but i think the concept of “personal growth” has a lot to do with moving said person from point A to point B.

  4. Essentially. The only way to get better at something is to work at. To become a resolute individual is to practice resolution. May I suggest the work “Euemswil” by Ernst Junger?

    At times, my critics and/or enemies have accused me of lacking sympathy, compassion, etc. This is not really the case. For instance, my writings are littered with sympathetic gestures towards many different kinds of people that most folks don’t give a flying fuck about (prisoners, drug addicts, street kids, the homeless, youth subcultures, psychiatric inmates, students, the mentally ill, ghetto blacks, prostitutes). Most of these are genuinely outcast and/or persecuted people that somehow never made their way on to the Left’s curiously selective pantheon of the oppressed.

    What I object to is the culture of self-pity and permanent infantilization that therapeutic culture and victimological ideology promotes. For instance, there are individuals among the ranks of my most fervent critics who epitomize what I’m referring to here. Virtually everything they say amounts to “poor me, I’m so oppressed”. My word to such folks is: “Get up, get over it, and get moving!”
