“It’s a collection of paleo-libertarians, ethnic nationalists, and whatnot. Frankly, I prefer the neocons to these lunatics who celebrate the worse elements of culture in the name of being “anti-state”.”
-So-called left-libertarian “Brain Police” on the Alternative Right
I have long argued that those who see cultural leftism as the primary value system and as one that trumps all other considerations will ultimately be worthless when it comes to fighting the state, the ruling class, or the empire, because they ultimately share the same essential values as the present day elites: hedonism, materialism, cosmopolitanism, univeralism, and egalitarianism.
It really takes a special kind of mind to consider the neocons to be preferable to anti-statists who happen to be cultural conservatives. Many of the leading neocons have openly called for a world war comparable to the two previous ones in the name of eradicating Islam. Many of them have openly called for presidential dictatorship in the name of fighting the war on terrorism. But, hey, who cares about all that when there’s dope to be smoked, internet porn to be jerked off to, and bathhouses to be visited? Justin Raimondo sized up these folks perfectly:
“As long as they can take drugs, abort fetuses, and sodomize each other to their hearts’ content, he and his Beltway buddies have no problem with the US rampaging over half the earth, regime-changing and taking out “rogue” states at will. As long as it’s a “free market” empire, they’re all in favor of it.”
Of course, Justin was talking about the neo-libertarians who’ve made their peace with the establishment, but scratch some of these left-libertarians and you have a budding neo-libertarian. When Brain Police grows out of his sandbox, look for a neocon-friendly “liberaltarian” to emerge.
