Esoteric Political Language

Politics in the modern age was symbolic, as much as practical, as the state had grown so large that meaningful change was going to be gradual. In fact, change was so slow that it transcended generations. One generation of politicians would tinker around with the rules and the next generation would realize the consequences. By the time the consequences of Johnson’s Great Society were felt, the people who pushed it were mostly out of office, so it was the successors who had to deal with the ramifications.

In the post-modern age, some may call it the technological age, political language is becoming esoteric, rather than symbolic. The language and discourse is not supposed to be sensible, but rather designed to test the boundaries of the formal political language. It is a game, of sorts, to figure out how to insert bits of heresy and forbidden topics into the political discourse, in a way that is only obvious to the people doing it. The point of the effort is to get people talking obliquely about forbidden topics and themes.

The most recent and best example of this is the Pepe the frog stuff in 2016. It was not just a pointless gag. It was about testing limits. Initially, it was about getting forbidden subjects into the mainstream of social media in a way that the designer could understand, but that made little sense to others. Eventually, a general awareness of what was happening turned the Pepe image into a symbol. Clownish political hucksters then adopted it as a symbol of their edginess, because it carried with it an implication of radicalism.

Another great example of this is the word “cuckservative” that got going around the same time as Pepe. One of the more amusing things during that period was watching members of Conservative Inc. come to understand what it meant. These are people who thought they were the face of dissident America, so they initially did not understand the term was a slur against them. Slowly, they understood and then the term moved from an esoteric insider gag to a symbol, denoting a line between dissidents and conservatives.

Currently, a similar dynamic is at work with the long shot candidacy of Andrew Yang, the Taiwanese businessman running in the Democratic primary. Dissidents, unhappy with Trump, initially landed on Tulsi Gabbard, due to her anti-war positions. The trouble with Gabbard, though, is her positions are explicit, rather than symbolic or esoteric, so supporting her does not serve the purpose of dissident actors using esoteric political language to test limits. That’s where Yang’s UBI proposal comes in.

The Universal Basic Income is a dumb idea, but that’s part of its appeal to those engaged in esoteric politics. The point of backing it and Andrew Yang is to take the reality of modern politics, that it is a bust-out, where non-white tribes loot the country, and pushing it to the limit. If non-whites have their snout in the trough, then everyone should have their snout in the trough. It’s also an oblique way of introducing white identity politics into the discussion. White Nationalists want their thousand bucks.

The Yang phenomenon is more than just an internet fad. According to 538, Yang is now a serious candidate and as such he is getting serious attention. It is the epitome of esoteric politics that an Asian candidate will become a cat’s paw for a wide range of issues important to white Americans, but forbidden in conventional discourse. You can be an open white nationalist, by sporting a YangGang ball cap, while BoomerCons are getting beat up for wearing their old MAGA hats to their grand kid’s ballgame.

Esoteric political language is not simply about camouflaging taboo subjects. That’s never worked, as evidence by the collapse of libertarianism. That was always the truth about libertarian politics. Outside of the weirdos and potheads, people identified with libertarian ideas as a form of implicit whiteness. Free markets and meritocracy assume that biological reality will take care of the rest, leading to a restoration of heritage America, but the obviousness of this is why it never got very far and is now a joke.

That’s what is different with things like the UBI support among white nationalists. It’s not just a proxy for white identity. It takes the logic of identity politics as practiced by the ruling class and pushes it to the boundary. It’s going to be hard for them to dismiss Yang as a white supremacist or his UBI idea as some sort of honky plot against the browns. In fact, any effort to do so will make them look ridiculous. That’s the point of esoteric political language. At its best, its critics confirm what they wish to deny.

It’s possible that esoteric political language is a natural result of democracy. In the Cold War, threat of nuclear annihilate meant politics remained grounded in the real, even as it relied on symbolism to communicate ideas. After the Cold War, the Clinton years were mostly about symbolism. The Bush years started the same way, but then curdled into a blend of symbolism and mendacity. Bush was the opposite of what he claimed. In the Obama years politics became an absurdist pantomime.

Perhaps this phase we’re entering is something new, where the dull-witted masses participate in democracy, but have no practical influence, because they are manipulated by the smart fraction using esoteric language to avoid plunging into the abyss. Maybe it is just another facet of late-stage liberal democracy. Maybe it is just the death rattle of empire, where practical politics is nothing but frightening choices, so the political language descends into a weird competition to reach some absurd limit.

I think you are correct. Trump still believes things work the way they did in the 60’s. Which in a lot of ways is surprising. But, he’s not the one to overthrow the system.

Yang is also much more acceptable than Gabbard to many on the right, because Yang is also anti-interventionist, but is also significantly to the right of most other Dem candidates on immigration and guns. He’s certainly not a right-winger on any of these issues, but he’s opposed to open borders and the banning of all “assault rifles”, and that puts him on the rightward fringe of the modern Democratic party, and he, alone of all candidates, Democratic or Republican, is willing to discuss the White Death realistically.

They are expecting (and have prepared for) a traditional grassroots revolutionary reaction when their true face is revealed (jackboots at the ready). But they have no defense against a parasite wave swamping the welfare state with new bloodsucking gimmicks (such as UBI). Presto chango, instant financial collapse and SHTF.

And after an agreed-upon “paid in full” we want to hear no more about white discrimination or freedom of association.

Maybe she could be swayed to the sane side if she were presented with the effect on the environment and on American workers’ wages and jobs. I don’t know.
I think she simple goes with the “spirit of aloha” when it comes to immigration, which to her includes no discrimination of anyone.

She’s got more guts than sense. Way too naive, psychopaths like AOC and Warren will eat her alive, but she’s still admirable, insofar as she actually did serve in the military, which is more than any neocon can say. She is also, far and away, the most likeable of the possible Dem candidates, with the possible exception of Yang.

She at least didn’t advocate for war while having a comfortable sinecure at the New York Times, she put her ass on the line. Can Kristol or Goldberg say the same? The war may not have been admirable, but the courage of the men and women who fought it was. Would that it had been in a better cause.

That’s true but the underlying issue remains, and the “right” in all its forms remains impervious to it: The police are the the retail distributors of the main product of the State; Violence, and the military its wholesale arm.
Both will be used against anybody when it’s considered necessary. Decent people should not support either branch.

I wish it weren’t so, but to me the support for Yang amount dissident righties seems less admirable than clever esoteric signalling or well-thought-through wanting racial parity in handouts: it’s simply a sign of how NEETy, how (as our opponents online disparage us) mom’s basement dwelling-y, so many of our brethren are, that $1,000/month seems like a salvation. And I think that, also unfortunately, since the Trump election surprised everyone, there are now so many professional leftist dissident righty watchers in the media and academia that the time loop between developing esoteric dissident symbolism and it being identified and marked… Read more »

If we can’t make headway in those battles, we’re certainly not going to be benefited by giving up and hoping that whatever post-middle class welfare system emerges from that will be in any way end up set up for our benefit.

I personally don’t want my taxes doubled or tripled with much of that money going to underclass parasites.

If you confiscated the entire net worth of Bezos, Gates, Buffet, Zuck, Larry Ellison, and Page and Brinn, it would come to at most $500b. That’s not where they’d get UBI from – I predict that it’d come from normal people (and, again, laregly go to the usual parasites).

Considering UBI, replacing the Federal Reserve with a national currency that pays dividends to citizens seems more sustainable.

It’s an oblique way to bring up the globalist bloodsuckers that own the Fed- the ones that are busting-out the US while using us as vassal mercenaries for their FDI Empire.
(And to discuss the nature of citizenship, as well.)

As David Goldman (Spengler) gloats, “we are paid great seignorage for our services as global policemen.” No, Goldman, *we* are not. You are, starting with that 6% off the top.

Note: FDI, foreign direct investment

When you created a ton of Federal Reserve Notes outside the border, they must be redeemed at home, creating both inflation and a bust-out as our country is bought up/sold off piece by piece.

For example, here in Brooklyn, Chinese nationals are buying up real estate, as an investment, a bug-out from China, and a way to get US residency. They’re paying more than the actual market price would be. An example: $1.8Million for a single family on a large lot, submit plans to put up 2 two-family houses. Ten years ago these same houses were $400K.

Hmm, a lot of the other side’s language doesn’t seem so esoteric to me: hatefully demonizing white people each and every day, openly cheerleading the ethnic cleansing of white people in their own countries, championing terrible race-bolshie ideas like reparations, etc. We’re more esoteric, sure, but I just take that as a natural result of our underdog status. We don’t want to get deplatformed (or worse.) But I will say this: the Esoteric Right™ has produced a lot more hardcore identitarians who, unlike earlier generations of “conservatives,” know exactly what they’re about and therefore less likely to change or cuck.… Read more »

You hit on the problem. Over 100 years of “earlier generations” letting us down. Literally a hundred years, actually more. Looking at history, the current state of politics, 2019 , was a foregone conclusion. But again, so is the coming bankruptcy of about 18-22 countries now that we’ve reached the “progressive” Valhalla. At some point, even a site like this will be de-platformed at the ISP level. That’s where we’re going. But one thing they can’t control is that their policies bleed red ink. Hard currency is the future, and will turn back a lot of this.

I don’t feel sorry for them. I want them run out of town. The only solution is called the “bum’s rush.” It’s not new. It’s been around for years. The “loafer” or “hobo” is told to get a job or leave town. If he stays the drug addled hobo is taken to the town limits by force. A mental one would be put in something called an “insane asylum.’ It all worked at one point.

Thanks, Z, for the concise, and rather kind, dismissal of Libertarianism.

I still am a bit of a small-L libertarian, but the L Party has been a joke for a very long time now. Years ago, I attended a few Libertarian state conventions; there were some impressively “smart-stupid” people there with me. By now, I suspect, even they have moved on….

The nihilism behind accelerationism or ‘get my slice before the pie spoils’ is understandable, but I seriously doubt the gibs will end up ‘universal’ by the time it gets run through the identity grinder of the entreched state powers. As a means to piss JP8 onto the dumpster fire: it looks good – particularly if it replaces other regulated gibs (housing, heating, gubmint cheese, etc.) leaving 85 IQ squatters to suddenly generate financial discipline from the ether.

If your children become bums just indenture them to whomever.
Not like your problem. Not personal or anything, just business.
Probably kill off the older people just to make sure.
Probably just kill babies and old people and anything good to eat and anything that protests being eaten.
Fooking modern humans defining a damnation. Probably involves wealth, or some kind of electricity.
Start hating your elders and your children and make some bank.
I guess that ends up someplace else.

Circumcision- the Third Rail of WigNattery

There was an episode of The Orville, where a couple from an all-male, gay species must decide whether their one-in-a-million infant daughter should have a sex change operation, as per ancient, alien custom. The Orville’s crew find this idea abhorrent and decide to fight it out in an alien courtroom, but during the trial, the advocate for the sex change, the public prosecutor-type, asks Orville’s doctor if circumcision is an abuse of the baby’s rights. This leaves the doctor like “Whaaa…? What are you even talking about? Circumcision is perfectly natural!” So here we have a civilisation that banned barbarian… Read more »

A good example is the term “undocumented Immigrant” to describe an illegal alien.
