Does Democracy Destroy Liberty?

This post originally appeared on XYZ.

Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn recently dropped a grenade on my brain, and now my thoughts are all a-jumble. I believe I can now say, with conviction, that I can understand how Alice felt while falling into that hole. I’m as confused as the ABC’s ‘election computer’. Perhaps after reading this, you’ll be similarly discombobulated. I happen to have the grenade right here, so I’m happy to oblige. Right now, I have the pin in my teeth and I’m now hurling the grenade at your frontal cortex…

Democracy and liberalism are incompatible. Boom!

Now sometimes this grenade is slow-release, so give it some time.… Read the rest

Everyone’s A Marxist Now

Post originally appeared on XYZ.

If you believe that equality is the utmost aspiration for civilised societies, if you believe that certain categories of humanity have been denied equality by other groups throughout history, if you believe that the causes of inequality are structural and if you believe that it is legitimate for the power of the State to be used to reduce inequality then you’re a Marxist. You might prefer a more polite term such as ‘progressive’ or say that you just think everyone should have a ‘fair go’ or just have thought those beliefs so natural that you don’t even notice them, but it doesn’t matter.… Read the rest

Hubris Will Bring Down The System

There’s a madness which descends on elites during the collapse phase of an imperial lifecycle. It is the apogee of decadence, when the reality bubble around the imperial elite floats off into thin air to meet the waiting pins of reality. This is the stage at which pampered Austrian princesses are told that the peasants have no bread, and reply they should eat brioche. It’s also the stage at which life inside the empire takes on an air of unreality and lies are everywhere, such as Rousseau’s (typical) lie quoting Marie Antoinette. It’s the moment when Wile E. Coyote has run off the cliff but not realised it yet. The Anglo-American imperium is at precisely this stage right now.… Read the rest

Democracy Always Leads To Socialism

Alexis de Tocqueville’s famous quote, written while touring America to inspect the relatively new republican system of government which he and many others erroneously call a ‘democracy’, that ‘The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money’, was astonishingly prescient. We can see today everywhere we look the results of what society becomes when the rest use their majority to oppress the best. The Frenchman was a diehard democrat and equalitarian, yet in his writings we can detect an acknowledgement that political systems based upon equality produce a lower form of culture and civilisation than aristocracies.… Read the rest

These Are Not The Droids You’re Looking For

As Aristotle correctly identified, democracy always descends into ochlochracy. As all right-thinking men agree, it has got to go. It miscegenates. It dysgenifies. It socialises. Then it collapses. Contra Churchill, it’s the worst of all possible systems. That Europeans have exported this political abomination to every people of the world is a grave sin against humanity. On behalf of all crackers and in the spirit of public apologies so popular these days, I apologise. It’s our fault. We Westerners have really screwed you Resterners.

Understanding then that we need a reboot of our civilisation is something many of us in the neoreactionary-traditionalist-new/alt right camp agree on.… Read the rest

Ideologues Are Haters

One day in the near future humanity will wake up, as if from a nightmare, and wonder how the orgiastic violence of the last century could ever have happened. What dark power took hold of Cambodia in the late 70’s, leading men who should have been working to provide for their families to instead dash babies’ brains against trees while impaling their parents on spikes after them? What motivated Japanese young men in the 30s to rape, torture and murder most anything that came across their path? What madness led European boys in the 1910’s to cheerfully march into machine guns and artillery fire, and to continue doing so for four years before what was left of them limped home and tried to explain it for the rest of their lives?… Read the rest

God Is An Anarchist

God doesn’t like government. Despite what the popular culture and received tradition of Churchianity would have us believe, God’s preferred political system is very far from the bloated leviathan vampire states that rule us today. God’s system of governance makes libertarianism look like a nanny state.

In the Bible narrative, government emerged after the flood. Babylon provides the archetype of everything God doesn’t like about the world system that the devil is consolidating today – idolatry, hedonism, financial enslavement and a false religion which concentrates the worship of the dislocated masses upon the leaders of the state. Pretty much everything you’d see at a Bernie Sanders rally today.… Read the rest

Our Gods Have Ruined Us

Everyone takes their gods seriously. If you were to visit pre-conquest Central America and begin joking with the locals about Quetzalcoatl’s funny headdress, you may well join the thousands being ritually sacrificed to him (feathers be upon him) during the next religious festival. If you instead travelled back to 1920’s Moscow and started talking dirt about Lenin and Marx’s facial hair in a bar, you would probably get a one-way ticket on the next slow train to Siberia. And if you were to travel to anywhere these days in the Dar al-Islam and point out Mohammed’s well-known pedophilia, well… we know what happens to people who mock Islam…

It’s one of the constants of human nature that we will uphold the honour of our gods.… Read the rest

The Emerging Dark Age

When the Western Roman Empire collapsed in the late 5th century AD, no-one knew. There had been a series of catastrophes, each followed by an accommodation of the incoming barbarian hordes, until finally Roman culture had disappeared and there were Latin-speaking barbarians everywhere. A bit like the BBC, really. Although there were points which can be identified as sudden collapses (the death of the last emperor in 476AD is the conventional end date) the collapse was only perceived in hindsight by the people living in the Empire. 

Where once there had been thriving cities with polyglot populations eating foodstuffs from all around the Mediterranean, by the 6th century AD there were tiny villages with illiterate serfs tilling their little vegetable patches.Read the rest

The Demon-People Are Multiplying

For half a century or so now, there has been no such thing as evil in the West. Absolute moral relativism (yes, pun intended) has been de rigeur amongst our educated class, and hence amongst our ignorant classes also. The closest thing to evil in the postmodern mind has been intolerance towards leftism’s cultural vandalism, although this is usually treated more as a repugnant mental defect rather than evil per se.

The mass delusion that evil does not exist has created the perfect habitat for evil to thrive. This is because delusion is the road to evil. More on this below.… Read the rest
