As crazy as Noam has gotten in his old age, he still stands up to the new clerisy. Kudos.
By Peter Van Burn The American Conservative I’m ambivalent about statues and J.K. Rowling being torn down, but terrified of the thought process behind the destruction. Decisions should never be made by mobs. Is America on the edge of a cultural revolution? The historical namesake and obvious parallel […]
This discussion nails it. Robin D’Angelo gets paid $12,000 per session to give a two-hour lecture to corporate employees on “anti-racism” so that corporations so pose as do-gooders while continuing to grind down the working class.
James Lindsay is arguably the best critic of the modern totalitarian left there is. This lays it all out pretty well.
Wow. Someone actually recognizes this. Democrats and Republicans are the left and right wings of the Neo-Feudalism Party.
Well, at least we know which firms to attack during the next wave of uprisings (if we didn’t already). And intra-ruling class conflict is always welcome. It’s also interesting how “hate” has become the new “obscenity.” It shows that the ruling class can always use whatever mores are […]
Will the Neocons Bait, Turn, Switch, and Purge the Antifa/SJWs While Suppressing the Lumpenproletariat?
This is important stuff. I recently put a couple of questions concerning current events to a well-known intellectual historian, a Jewish man whose parents fled Hungary during the rise of Hitler, and who is a specialist in the history of 20th-century totalitarian movements. His responses confirmed my suspicion […]
Ironically, Virginia has a Democratic government that recently passed a bunch of “woke” legislation but is ranked 51st in the country, below the other 49 states and Washington, D.C, on the issue of workers’ rights. Thanks to the northern Virginia suburbs, Virginia is becoming the California of the […]
A somewhat interesting interview with a leading black conservative. I would be inclined to argue that, at present, substantial sectors of the capitalist class (including some major capitalist entities) along with their allies in the new clerisy/new class that dominates the “ideas industries” are fueling anti-racism hysteria in […]
But isn’t “chicks” considered by many feminists to be a derogatory term for women? I remember when these ladies were being lambasted by the right-wing for being unpatriotic for criticizing the Iraq War. In its more benign forms, this stuff is simply the Legion of Decency, Moral Majority, […]
Mississippi has the worst poverty rate in the US and an infant mortality rate that matches China’s or Sri Lanka’s, particularly among blacks. Princess Faith doesn’t seem much worried about that (and probably doesn’t know about it). While the lumpenproletariat engages in actual class war and armed struggle […]
Universities need to purge their libraries of Marxist literature, lol. By Walter Williams LewRockell.Com For those who see Marx as their hero, there are a few historical tidbits they might find interesting. Nathaniel Weyl, himself a former communist, dug them up for his 1979 book, “Karl Marx: Racist.” […]
This kind of like when Lenin referred to middle-class liberals as useful idiots for the revolution. If these do-gooder types can be guilt-shamed into anti-piggishness, fine. Whatever works. By Caitlin Dickerson New York Times MINNEAPOLIS — When Shari Albers moved three decades ago into Powderhorn Park, a tree-lined […]
Indeed it is. What the totalitarian Left typically tries to do is ride the wave of popular rebellion to state power. But when they start attacking the religion is often when they start losing popular sympathy, and public opinion will then take a rightward turn. It happened in […]
Atheist-leftist Kyle Kulinski defends the right of Christians to have a white Jesus image on private property.
If recent events are a foreshadowing of events to come, which they may well be, it would seem that the lumpenproletariat faces five primary dangers when it comes to future revolutionary activity.
This is right on target. These neo-Maoist SJWs need to be kept as far away from the state as possible.
Kamala Harris would be the ruling class’ ideal figurehead at this point. A “woman of color” who consolidates the totalitarian humanist ideological framework with the left hand, while strengthening the police/carceral state with the right hand. Sen. Kamala Harris speaks on the Senate floor about historical and modern […]
Speculation: The state may attempt to co-opt the protests/rebellion with the left hand by exploiting it in order to strengthen the totalitarian humanist ideological superstructure, while seek to expand police state repression with the right hand by bringing conspiracy and other charges against protest leaders.
Kyle is merely criticizing standard right-wing dumbassery in much of this, but one of the most important points he raises is that evidence shows that a majority of the US public still opposes removing Confederate monuments, and super-majority opposes removing historic American monuments. When leftist revolutions fail, and […]
This article discusses the very important point that authoritarian/leftist revolutions are always carried out by the left-wing of the upper middle class almost as a matter of general historical law. Revolts can come from any layer of society. Historically, there have have revolts by slaves, peasants, workers, ethnic […]
As the New Church, corporate media and Big Tech connive to impose censorship on heretics and to conveniently eliminate their business competitors in the process. Krystal and Saagar discuss NBC News’ apparent push to have Google remove conservative sites from the search giant’s ad platform.
Most of my politics are the polar opposite of VDH’s and Eric Metaxas is a fuckhead but Hanson raises some interesting points in this. Regrettably, the uprising has also unleashed beyond-parody levels of totalitarian humanism in some corners. I disagree that the current situation is on par with […]
In the tradition of Nietzsche and Stirner. We need both Edmund Burke and Thomas Paine, both of whom were proto-anarchists.
Rarely have I seen an illustration of what is wrong with “woke” culture that is more pertinent than this. Not only is Baroness Jane from an elite Hollywood family (the modern American equivalent of the aristocracy) but she has been a political lightning rod for 50 years (I […]
By Anarchy Man There are hardly any words that could be used to describe this social order briefly and in more detail.
On one hand, Carlson is correct that there is a dangerous totalitarian element on the margins of the insurrection, and that such elements are motivated by the ambition of riding the wave of a popular rebellion to power, only to set up a tyrannical state of their own […]
Joseph Cotto and I discuss the totalitarian left.
A German teenager runs afoul of the new blasphemy laws. I consider the tribal civil war between the Red Tribe and Blue Tribe to a low-intensity variation of the traditional Catholic/Protestant conflicts in Europe during the early modern period or the Sunni/Shia conflict in the Middle East today. […]
I always said the “new fascism” would not be under the guise of national or racial chauvinism but would be wrapped in the banner of “progressive” causes like “safety,” “health,” or “equality.” Where have you been, Antifa? I originally introduced the concept of totalitarian humanism in this article […]
I have always said that “anti-hate speech” is just a mask for political repression. States and ruling classes always attempt to justify repression by appealing to the dominant moral paradigm. In past times, they would use religion as a justification for suppressing ostensible heretics. When church and state […]
Would You Care if a White Man Cured Covid-19? Hiring researchers by sex and race rather than scientific prowess is dangerous nonsense
I’m generally not a fan of Randian cop-lover Heather MacDonald, but this is funny. By Heather MacDonald Rightfully Yours “If we are in a war, as our leaders tell us, we should act like it. Diverting scientists’ attention, time and funding away from research and toward identity politics […]
It seems that most people even on the far left and far right have a limited perception and definition of what concepts like the “state,” “ruling class,” or “power elite” actually mean. It would also seem that we need a much more modernized and expansive definition of these […]
Feminists vs White Privilege theorists in the “Who’s Most Oppressed?” pissing contest? I’ve seen a lot of SJW-types using the “Karen” eponym. Apparently, a pro-Karen faction of SJWs has formed. Or maybe this is all just satire. Who knows with these folks.
Tucker Carlson is a de facto spokesman for the petite bourgeoise and “small capitalist” sectors of the commercial economy, the post-bourgeois proletariat, the “sinking middle,” the dying WASP culture, political traditionalists and constitutional fundamentalists of the kind found on the paleo/populist-right, etc. Many of those interests have been […]
Glad to see some left-wing folks questioning the official ruling class party line.
The tech oligarchy is a principal faction of the rising left-wing of the capitalist class, for whom scientism and the therapeutic state are a core component of their self-legitimating ideology, which is in turn disseminated by the new clerisy whose ranks include the white coat priesthood.
Like most cults, the Democratic Party has both an exoteric and esoteric doctrine. “Wokeness” is the exoteric doctrine that is intended for the purpose of manipulating and motivating the rank and file of true believers (the progressive liberal/social democratic/SJW/Antifa/anarcho-progressive axis) while neoliberalism is the esoteric doctrine of the […]
This is one of the very best commentaries Krystal has ever done. Krystal Ball responds to critics who accused her of treating racism like, “some type of minor policy difference that can just be hand waved away,” for calling Tucker Carlson, an “independent thinker,” for being willing to […]
Todd Lewis and Nexus discuss issues that pertain to dissident intellectuals with a decentralized bent.
Here’s the money quote: “Where, one wants to ask Kofman and her co-authors, is the “tolerance” on which liberals pride themselves? Whatever happened to those old leftists, like Noam Chomsky and Peter Singer, who were averse to “gatekeepers,” stressing that absurd ideas and “hate speech” are the price […]
Associated Press BELGRADE, Serbia — Soldiers patrol the streets with their fingers on machine gun triggers. The army guards an exhibition center-turned-makeshift-hospital crowded with rows of metal beds for those infected with the coronavirus. And Serbia’s president warns residents that Belgrade’s graveyards won’t be big enough to bury […]
Will Coronavirus and Great Depression Two be the end of “wokeness”? I doubt it. “Wokeness” actually increased by an order of magnitude after the Great Recession. I see no evidence that the “culture wars” have subsided in the context of the present crisis. If anything, extremist movements, left […]
Historically, totalitarian revolutions have been driven by the left-wing of the middle class during times when the middle-class (or at least segments of the middle class) is rising on a socioeconomic level but has its political ambitions frustrated by deeply entrench elites. I believe this theory explains the […]
Famous last words?
Anyone who wants to understand how we got today’s uneasy alliance of corporate neoliberals and left-wing “social justice warriors” needs to read this work by a Democratic Party strategist from the early 1970s. Available at Amazon.
Beware of the wolves, left and right. By Rod Dreher The American Conservative James Lindsay is a mathematician and academic gadfly who has made his name outside of academic circles as a harsh and witty critic of “critical social justice” theory, and of its progressive crusaders. Along with […]
Today seems to be quite the day for anniversaries! Not only is this day, the 13th of February 2020, the half-century anniversary of Black Sabbath’s self-titled album—and, by extension, the whole heavy metal genre—it’s also the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Dresden, one of the least salutary […]
