The Cosmo Right

A regular feature of the internet age is the emergence of what is called a “new right” that is supposed to supplant the “old right.” This is largely due to the collapse of Buckley-style conservatism over the last twenty years. The assumption is that the failures of mainstream conservatism and its dwindling demographic must lead to its demise and its replacement by a new, more contemporary right. As a result, there have been a lot of hats thrown into the ring from alternative rights.

What may be emerging as the real threat to win the competition is something that has yet to name itself. The recent hit piece on the publisher of Passage Press, the group responsible for rehabilitating Steve Sailer, led to a gathering of online friends and acquaintances in support of the publisher. This is the online character known as Lomez, who has written for Claremont sites and has a big following on Twitter. He is part of a loose network of influencers that could be called the Cosmo Right.

That is the first place to start with understanding this collection of people emerging into a movement of sorts. They are cosmopolitan in the old bourgeois sense of the word, as they often live in or around the trendy cities. Maybe they went to a college that is near a trendy city or they worked at a company in a hipsterville. Maybe they just like to hang out in places like Austin. It is not so much about location when it comes to their cosmopolitanism, but their attitude.

These are people comfortable in and around the people David Brooks called bourgeois bohemians or Bobo’s. Brooks described them as highly educated people who enjoy the aesthetic of the creative world but pay for it by successfully maintaining a position in the competitive modern economy. Twenty years ago, when he wrote his book about these people, the Bobo’s were a white couple who lived in a gentrified part of the Five Burroughs but had jobs in Manhattan.

This potential new right that is forming up seems to be mostly people who have drifted in and out of that world. They come from generally upper middle-class backgrounds, went to college, and entered a profession. Finding the meritocratic world stifling and sterile, they have been looking around for something more fulfilling and that is not limited to their lifestyle. Their politics are the result of waking up from neoliberalism and then searching about for alternatives.

A representative example is the Blaze writer and commentator Auron MacIntyre, whose book The Total State reads like a personal journey out of the world of conventional politics into the wilderness of dissident politics. Instead of going down the usual rabbit holes which is so common when people get red-pilled on politics, he has maintained a foot in the world of conventional politics, often normalizing ideas that first gained traction in the shadows of dissident discourse.

This gets to the natural trendiness with this new scene. This new right is composed of people comfortable in a world that is often defined by trends, so they do not get swept up in whatever is happening at the moment. In other words, this is a conservatism of disposition, rather than of ideology. Scan the posts of the site IM1776 and you get a Russel Kirk vibe from it. The focus is not on a political agenda, but more on analysis and the proper positioning of politics with the personal.

This is also a millennial demographic. Zoomers get a lot of attention due to their shenanigans online and their skillful use of digital media, but this new scene is almost exclusive to people from the millennial cohort. Like the Zoomers, they come from the suburban middle-class, but unlike the Zoomers they went onto college and got jobs in the above ground economy. Their politics are the result of that experience in the world of practical things, rather than the internet fever swamps.

Another interesting and novel aspect is that this ad hoc collection of people can be described as post-national, post-racial and post-regional. They are all what Leonard Jeffries would call “ice people” but there is no emphasis on it. It is a lot like the old paleo-conservatism in that there are a lot of secular Jews and conservative Christians from mainstream sects. You also see a mix of people from different regions with a regional focus, but not exclusively so.

This is the new cosmopolitanism that may be the result of the demographic changes sweeping the Western world. The old racial categories no longer work because it is no longer a world of black and white. The majoritarian outlook no longer works as there is no longer a natural majority. The response to multiracial neoliberalism may be a cosmopolitan conservatism rooted in classical Western attitudes. The answer to the new Mercurians will be new Apollonians.

There is also the fact that it is young and educated. These are not people with warmed over political agendas from the past, but young, educated men reexamining the past for the foundations of a new political foundation. That means it is less a political agenda than a cultural movement. There is a cool factor growing up around these people on social media, which brings in new voices and new ideas. That gives this new scene a vitality missing from prior new right initiatives.

Of course, this could just be another ripple in the river that is the political in the mass media age. This is not the first effort at creating an alternative to the shuffling husk that is Buckley-style conservatism. The difference here is that this emerging new subculture is not a deliberate creation. Unlike Hazony’s newfangled nationalism, the Cosmo-Right is an organic thing that is emerging gradually. Therefore, it may have more staying power because it is not built to replace anything.

Following today’s theme of normal people, doing normal things, the New York Times had a follow up hit piece yesterday on some punter for the Kansas City Chiefs (the original Associated Press piece from earlier this year failed to get him fired). This is a normal guy, playing elite sportsball, who is: 1. Catholic; 2. Married; 3. With a bunch of kids. He gave the commencement speech at “Benedictine College”, which is such a horrible school that it thinks pride is a sin and that girls can’t hang out in bikinis on the quad. Obviously this man and school are… Read more »

I was already moving away from sportsball, but after the stunt where MLB put BLM on every mound for opening day — a quick trip to the BLM site, to read their ‘manifesto’ made it all the easier to NEVER WATCH another baseball, nor sportsball event again.

Sickening, how my fellow ‘men’ mutter things like “I need by baseball’ and such.

I was given some free tickets to the local sportsball team twice this year and I ended up giving them to someone else. In addition to the awful, anti-white BS emanating from their ownership, who wants to deal with confiscatory parking, food and beverage prices just to watch a bunch of overpaid jagoffs play a child’s game? I don’t. Not to mention that the owners of these teams are experts in manipulating local governments to give them taxpayer money to build their fancy monuments to assholery.

Contrary to so much is what is being said here in the comments, having smart Jews on your side is very much to be desired. They are smart.

We can use their help to the extent they realize they are the help.

If that pisses them off, well, they’ll just have to mind the doorknob on their way out. In other words, we’re in charge of this thing and they get to tag along at our sufferance.

No, the Jews leeched off the British Empire and got their Promised Land after 1800 years in the political wilderness when Lord Balfour issued his declaration in 1917.

And when the British didn’t move fast enough to satisfy the Zionist terrorists in Irgun and Haganah, they started blowing shit up and killing Arabs and British officials.

I often wonder why such as we decry did not happen to me. My conclusion is that I slipped by this new “system” before the change. My instruction was in a school immersed in the “Western Canon” and one that required, not simply allowed, a solid grounding in the liberal arts before discipline specialization.

These guys are the “BAP right”, after Bronze Age Pervert. They are all in their late 30s or early 40s, Nietzcschaen, hyper-individualistic, and focused on aesthetics. Peter Thiel is a big fan of them and a major funder. They also happen to be, not for nothing, Jewish academics, Zionist, and assiduously avoid discussing Jewish influence in our politics and government. This makes for an obvious conflict with another segment of the “New Right”, that being the Groypers, and the battle lines are getting drawn up as we speak.

Why do you, somewhat snidely, call it a “conspiracy theory” yet you admit that Thiel has funded non-mainstream characters on the right? When you do the math, all these chaps are either connected or clearly manufactured. Why use a mainstream buzzword to be dismissive about something we know happens, namely govt control of media and influencers?

Remember, we can’t know from the outside if this is happening, but when you write what another comment called a love letter–to technocracy and globalism–we must draw our own conclusions about what the goal is here.

What turned me off about Auron MacIntyre is that he restates before addressing controversial issues that involve race or the tribe that he isn’t a racist or anti semite. I can see how that keeps him at the blaze and able to monetize his online work but I am sick of people buying into the tribe’s mandated value system for us.

I notice that the leftist protestors for Palestinians don’t always preface their condemnstions with an announcement that they are not anti Semites. We need to be brave enough to at least do that too.

We are seeing that already. Awhile back Scott Adams went full retard and ate a whole bottle of red pills. He came right out and shat on the jews, the ADL, and their attacks on freedom of speech and finished it off by proclaiming his new dedication to antisemitism AND antizionism.

Tectonic plates grate and shift; empires and kings are about to fall. None of us will be the same afterward.

As best as I can tell, the Cosmo Right is just a cooler version of Steve Sailer. They’re against the anti-white pogrom because they believe in a utopian colorblind civic nationalism that will never exist, not because they are pro-white. They also believe that whites joining the identity politics game is WORST THING EVER. They also tread extremely lightly around the role of Jews in this whole affair.

I doubt that most of intentional gatekeepers, but they still send whites down a pointless path.

The Tradwife movement is a novel reaction to modern societal dysfunction that deserves some attention, and it is being driven more by desperation than happenstance. Three generations of women have now grown up under the influence of feminism, and that disaster is now manifest as a crisis of mating incompatibility. No normal male wants anything to do with these woman as a mating partner, so they either get ignored or treated as disposable sex toys. In response, the pendulum is now swinging radically back toward a role model in which possessing traditional loyalty and family raising skills are the only… Read more »

The Fashionable Right? I have wondered recently if there is some point where the Left, in culture and politics, suddenly discovers it is old, played out, and unfashionable, since it has had a stranglehold on presenting itself as modern, dynamic, and what all the Cool Kids are into since the 1920s, and has owned everything since the 1990s. There has to be a point where the poles shift and Leftism becomes stodgy, old, and preoccupied with conserving the world they created in the 20th century-they are the conservatives now.

But the Left has made beauty passe’ if not reprehensible. The trap we in the Right are in is that we’re playing a game of pool according to the rules of pool, but outside of that little pool table a cataclysmic earthquake has occurred that has rendered pool anachronistic and irrelevant. Our objective must be to create a macrosphere in which the microsphere of pool once again finds hospitable ground.

Beauty is timeless and its demand never goes away. While I’m more in the homo economicus camp as far as cultural and political transformation, those who posit that the dreariness of late Soviet architecture prefigured that system’s collapse have a point, right? Hunger is the last straw, of course, but no beauty left to preserve removes any hesitancy to flip over the table or to preserve what went earlier. I suspect a GAE economic collapse will be accompanied by a rater Pol Pot-like attitude toward the previous system.

Not sure Soviet architectural dreariness is a thing. I grew up in NYC for first part of life and remember the “projects” that surrounded me. Really not that much different IMO.

Yes, beauty is timeless. That said, we find ourselves in a milieu of extreme derangement in which the insane control every lever of a unitary propaganda apparatus. In such an environment, it is almost impossible for beauty’s green shoots to fully germinate and spread. And when they do, along comes the Left with its Treflan and its backhoes.

Beauty, in concrete form, cannot exist in this environment. It can only exist as an ideal. But if and when we gain possession of tracts of fertile loam, the ideal will reassume concrete form and beauty will again blossom.

Once Leftists commit to conserving anything then they will go out of business. I mean, what is a good Leftist to do once he becomes satisfied with the status quo? No, their modus operandi and animating spirit is to constantly destroy whatever stands before their eyes. Leftism becomes increasingly deranged over time, but it never becomes stodgy.

Aren’t these guys just younger, cooler version of Steve Sailer (except that they’re mostly Jewish). Sure, they notice the anti-white campaign, but they oppose it not because they are “pro-white” but because they are colorblind CivNats, so racial discrimination of any kind is off limits.

There’s a simple litmus test with any of these guys: Do they favor or oppose whites joining the identity politics games and, if they oppose it, why aren’t they harping daily on Jews being the ultimate identity politics players?

Reading this, I was reminded of John Derbyshire’s “Confessions of a Metropolitan Conservative” from 2003: https://www.johnderbyshire.com/Opinions/USPolitics/metrocons.html

The answer to the new Mercurians will be new Apollonians.

What does this mean?

It means you need to read your Nietzsche. Or learn to use a search engine.

Yikes. N is a long way off. I’m just finishing the Aeneid.

aescylus was a few years ago. Livy is next. Someday I’m gonna go back and re read everything. The Aenied was much more meaningful this time around with all the background I did the past few years.

I, for one, want nothing to do with these people. The real and effective traditional politics of any age is never to be found among the hipsters. Today, it is hardly to be found anywhere. There are certain traces… Read more »

I am glad your retarded bullshit gets increasingly little engagement on this website unlike on unz. The correct thing to do any time you open your brain damaged mouth is to just ignore and keep scrolling, and I’m seeing that’s what people are doing.
