Fighting Reality

From time to time it is useful to pick up the spyglasses and take a look at some of the smaller gatherings on the other side of the great divide. The establishment Left is easy to see, as it takes up so much space and makes so much noise. The same is true to a lesser extent with the professional Right. The smaller subcultures are not as easy to see, but they can be more useful in understanding the nature of the divide and why there is a great divide in the first place.

This conversation between someone calling himself Brendan O’Neil and someone calling himself Bret Weinstein is a good example. It appears this is a regular show hosted by Weinstein, where he invites on guests of “diverse opinion” to discuss issues he thinks are important. The topic of this show, according to the copy, was what he calls the woke war on the Enlightenment. Not much was revealed in that regard, but it is useful in understanding why there is a dissident right.

Now, Brendan O’Neil bills himself as a man of the Left. He is the editor of something called Spiked, which is the successor of something called Living Marxism, the journal of the Revolutionary Communist Party. According to his Wikipedia page, he is a former Trotskyist and communist, but now he self identifies as a Libertarian Marxist. That last bit only makes sense when you know that Spiked is funded by the Charles Koch Foundation, the guys who bankroll Reason Magazine.

Bret Weinstein is a bit more familiar to Americans. He is a member of the gratuitously self-described “intellectual dark web.” This a group of mostly Jewish writers who churn out conventional opinions for various mainstream sites. Weinstein got famous because he was attacked by a mob on lunatics on his college campus because he lacked enthusiasm for their latest fashions. He became a symbol of mob action on campus. He describes himself as a progressive and left-libertarian.

The first interesting thing to note in this is that both describe themselves as left-libertarian in their own way. No one describes themselves as right-libertarian, as that is something which no longer exists. The so-called conservatives would claim they are now the home of right-libertarians, but that is just another self-serving lie. They pose no opposition to the Left on anything. Conservatism is nothing more than a polite fiction now, a holding place for something yet to come.

Putting that aside, this conversation provides a good example of what happens when you eliminate the right answer. You are left trying to mold the wrong answer into something useful. Here, they refuse to consider biology plays any role in culture and politics. In particular, they refuse to accept that the people toppling statues and running Jewish professors off campus are motivated by race. It can’t be race, so they conjure strained explanations for what is happening.

At about the six-minute mark they get into identity politics. The claim by the British guy is the lock downs broke the British collective identity and that’s what caused mobs of people to go out and tear down statues. He terms it a retreat into group identity, rather than collective identity. The fact that the people doing the rioting were non-white and their targets were white people and culture, seems to be lost on him. It is a good example of what happens when you eliminate the obvious.

The response from Weinstein is amusing. He makes the obvious point that technology has made the world smaller. No matter how narrow your interests, you can find people who share your interests on-line. In the case of politics, it means on-line community around shared identity. He suggests this is a problem, as people falling into these “echo chambers” on-line eventually succumb to identity politics. It looked like he wanted to use the term “false consciousness” at that point.

Later on, they refer to the “murder of George Floyd” which gives the game away, but the show is still worth a listen. These tribes of the old Left are struggling for the same reason that the so-called conservatives and libertarians struggle. They cling to the notion that countries are built around ideas. They think that ideology can replace biology as the building block of human organization. The new man will completely submit to the prevailing orthodoxy of the new society.

The creedal nation was always a left-wing idea and it was always wrong. Like the Soviet Union, creedal America had a good run through the Cold War. For a half a century, most Americans were happy to put aside their natural identity in favor of patriotism, for the good of the country. It was a useful way for the ruling class to organize the public in the great game against communism. The Cold War is over and the reason to put aside those natural identities is gone with it.

It should be no surprise that blacks in America and the new arrivals in the West are the first to embrace this new reality. American blacks never embraced the creedal nation stuff. They have always been the least patriotic group. The new arrivals were never encouraged to drop their natural identity. In fact, they were encouraged to embrace it as they were told diversity is our strength. It is the occidentals that are the last to catch on, but that is changing.

That is what you see in that video. Both men are clinging to the old modes of thought, hoping to find a way to keep white people from embracing identity politics. Nowhere in their discussion do they condemn blacks or immigrants, even though they are the people rioting in the streets. The long post-war period was, in fact, a break from human reality, but now reality is roaring back. Yesterday men like those two in the video cling to their creedal notions, while reality returns with a vengeance.

The ‘whites’ you see are mostly Jewish, as can be seen from the results of the shoot-out with the Kenosha Kid. This is why not being an antisemite makes you say stupid things about White people. Portland and Seattle are very White. They are also very affluent. Does that mean this is a civil war between the rich?

Capitalism of some sort is basically as old as money itself.

Eventually you get the legal framework of global corporatism which has gradually allowed large corporations to become trans-national states of their own. In countries… Read more »

To the extent this is a white problem, the problem is that close to 1/3 of whites are anti-white racists and black supremacists. But without the willingness of blacks to play the ur-victims and to act out violently, the race traitors wouldn’t have an ideological fulcrum and would be missing a huge cohort of shock troops.

My grandfather won the Silver Star fighting in the Pacific. He was a super tight-ass white man. Would make his Squad fire their rifles into the sand every morning to make sure the guns worked. The Silver Star was derived from an incident where his squad beat a hasty “retreat”. When they regrouped he noted that one member of the squad was absent; they had left him behind.

That’s what I was talking about the other day. We’re moving from the Ideological Age to the Demographic Age – something I completely ripped off from Z, btw.

Ideological debates – the Age of Reason, so to speak – are a luxury purchased by previous generations ruthlessly purging the land of other races/ethnicities/cultures without little to no regard for such high-minded principles.

Like the trust fund kid running out of money, we are losing our ability to ignore reality.

In 2016 I had the thought that Trump might have been able to pull off Civic Nationalism, though I should have taken a clue from the fact that the man I had learned about CivNat from, Steve Sailer, had well given up on it by that point.
It’s interesting perhaps in that Trump has tired at that, but it probably would have been better for all involved if he didn’t.

CivNat was the dominant American worldview. Of course when Lincoln was cobbling it together he was doing it to get germans, english and Irish to pull together.

Sorry, I can’t take anything Peterson says seriously. He was a grifter of the first order and his messy implosion was inevitable.

And in that bubble, the result was that race wasn’t that important and allowed us to live nice lives and focus on other things.

The minority kids fit in with us because they had to or they’d be isolated. Nobody talked about race because it was almost all white. Like a fish isn’t aware of water. The blacks mostly lived in the big city ghetto, so they weren’t a part of our everyday life.

Christianity is a doctrine of improvement for individuals and cultures. Islam is a low-IQ version of Christianity, and had fierce and noble aspects in its original conception.

Having been grounded in Christianity for the greater part of two millennia white cultural moral values are basically synonymous with Christian values. But there are amoral cultural values as well. Ex: whites value personal space and quiet.

Evergreen accepts 97% of applicants and issues no grades but instead “evaluations”. Students pursue “Interdisciplinary” studies they invent themselves. It was a joke long before it was woke. These places need to be defunded and left to underwrite themselves. The activist retards these places churn out are a massive liability that the rest of us pay for in perpetuity. That “professor” Whinestein in his ivory tower is part of the problem. Like Jordan Pedersen, insufficient leftist holiness is hardly an admirable qualifier for expertise on the human condition. He became problematic and got tossed. He didn’t give in to the… Read more »

So true, AD. The walter mitty syndrome is a real factor. Two things sort this out. Meatspace and Truth. The sooner our guys accept the discomforts of both the sooner they will actually find the liberty they supposedly value. The redpill comes with many a man on a wagon selling bottled up dreams.

Knowing this, what sane employer would ever hire an Evergreen graduate?

If the purpose of college is to get a degree, leading to a job, Evergreen is the exact opposite.

Musk said something about a college degree shows that you can show up on time and turn in papers on command for 4 years.

This was not a compliment.

Evergreen is just a leading indicator of institutional education. A progressive among progressives. Graduates enter the gig economy. Uber, dog walkers, instacart shoppers. Basement activism for some NGO/non-profit. Community “werk”. Government cheddar factories where they churn out communist curds for older fatter versions of themselves. A few matriculate into normal careers. Enough to cover for the rest.

Yeah i’m not really arguing and could well be wrong in the particulars. To clarify my perspective, I believe that if the whites of south africa got down to business and used the ancient european ways- the US would probably have to deploy airpower to contain them to the sub Sahara. We have enough numbers right now. You get more bang for your buck (1000x) convincing whites to get sensible and defend their interests than worrying about the de novo production of more whites.

I think if we get back to basics we will be surprised.

And maybe it’s simply tat the quality of the sperm and egg is much better with the young, and so you get better kids. Seems reasonable. Yes, young parents… Read more »

As I’ve said many times, the only utopia I can imagine is one where the egalitarian utopian impulse is itself finally purged.

I would bet a lot of younger people’s journey to this side will include a stop in Weinsteinland. I actually like him. I have a feeling he would have a panic attack if he knew how many people he helped to this side though. The fascinating thing to me about him, as an evolutionary biologist, is how he doesn’t seem to have the self awareness to address how much his own biological temperament colors his Utopianism. His douchey brother doesn’t have this problem, although he seems to have a similar lack of self awareness regarding his ethnic affiliation.

And of course, this is one of the reasons for the current CRT hysteria – all of the alternatives between it and race realism are slowly evaporating, and the Left knows it.

Over the last sixty-five years, our country has literally been turned upside-down in an effort to accommodate blacks; the right to freedom of association has been destroyed, reverse-discrimination has been instituted, the constitution has been abrogated – and blacks are STILL underperforming, at about the same levels… Read more »

Two points. First, creed only works when biology is aligned. When America was overwhelmingly white it could rally to a creed because the creed itself was an epiphenomenon of biology. Once America began diversifying in the mid-60s, and the New Left began pushing its own anti-white racist creed, the country fractured and is now collapsing. Second, the two yokels Z-man mentions fail totally to grasp the obvious fact that identity politics didn’t commence with the woke mudslide.

Weinstein has a podcast with eight conservative to neutral blackish intellectuals. He showed a relentless need to create agreement and conformity to his deepest beliefs, already described here. Glenn Loury wasn’t having any of it, nor was his pal McWhorter. Loury is a Walter Williams type. One of the young intellectuals was impressively unmoved, if only one.

I hate that kind of manipulation from hosts, especially from intellectuals who should know better. I remember Sam Harris was hosting a public interview at some university, and instead of simply asking his interviewee “What do you make of virtue signalling?” He spent about 2 minutes low-key prepping everyone about how “right-minded” people ought to think about it.
