The Debt Supernova

Mencius Moldbug is writing again

If you sit anywhere in the broad and largely dysfunctional church that is the dissident right, you owe at least some of your views to Mencius Moldbug. Even if you don’t know it.

This is the guy who came up with the red pill analogy. While the Golden One motivated many young wrongthinkers to start lifting heavy weights, Moldbug inspired them to read heavy books.

 

The Golden One

 

A Jewish computer programmer who happened to start a blog, which started a movement, and then pretty much disappeared.

No monetised YouTube channel.

No Breitbart-funded diva speaking tours.

No Rebel Media endorsements.

No LARPy costume marches to provide the feds with the optics to shut us down.… Read the rest

Liberal democracy has failed

I took the fam to see our equivalent of the Iron Throne last week.

 

the snake pit

 

Much less impressive than the one in King’s Landing. Needs more bloodstains.

Like all palaces, the building itself conveys the hegemonic ideology of the nation. It is both a statement of power and a testimony to the worldview of the ruling elite who inhabit it.

The Forbidden Palace told the world that China is the centre of the world, and the emperor the centre of China.

 

Forbidden City

 

Buckingham Palace manages to be both regal and unassuming at the same time, unlike the ostentatious palaces of the continent.… Read the rest

Why die for a country that hates you?

The spooks are definitely trying to spook us about war with the Han space ant colony right now.

I caught that clip while waiting at the chemist.… Read the rest

War with China is inevitable and we’re totally unprepared

One of the ways you know the barbarians are coming is that everyone is mad.

At the moment of peak debauchery, peak delusion, peak degeneracy, the Medo-Persians will break into Babylon and the slaughter begins. Or the Mongols will breach the wall. Or the Goths will suddenly march on Rome. That’s when reality returns, hard.

We’re at pretty much peak crazy right now. Everyone sane knows it, and the crazy majority calls the sane mad. Or terrorists.

Why house prices are going to fall 75%

Took the fam to the Central Coast for a holiday recently. Lovely place.

The little one liked the beaches, the missus liked the landscape and I liked the serenity.

Even the dog had a ball. He had a romp on the beach with a bitch called Bow. His first romance.

Everywhere we went though, everyone, bloody everyone, talked about real estate. A random Boomer chick on the beach. The ferry driver. The pharmacist.

“Sydney prices have gone too high, so there won’t be any growth there for a while. People are finding out about here now, so the growth will be here for the next few years.”

“There are still some pockets where you can buy in the 400 range.Read the rest

The Problem Of Democratic Sovereignty

This post appeared first on XYZ.

This is the second in a series looking at sovereignty and political legitimacy in Western countries today. The first piece explored the problem of democratic legitimacy under socialism.

The mood among the establishment media has shifted noticeably since the French election. Gone is the post-Trump melancholia. Lovers of the globalist status quo seem to have convinced themselves that Brexit and Trump were just anomalies, and that the new world disorder of open borders, cultural Marxism against whites and unfettered corporate neoliberalism is back on track.

They’re wrong. Macron is a puppet of the globalists, sure, yet the establishment parties which have ruled France for decades were roundly rejected.… Read the rest

No Representation Without Taxation

This piece appeared first on XYZ.

There is an anecdote in Augustine’s great work ‘City of God’ of a conversation between Alexander the Great and a famous pirate named Diomedes. It was written 700 years after the events were supposed to have taken place, by a man living in North Africa under the Roman Empire just before the lights of civilisation went out permanently there.

In the exchange, Alexander asks Diomedes why he plagues the seas. The pirate contemptuously responds, ‘The same reason as you do the world, but while I operate with one boat, I am called a robber; but since you have a great fleet, you are called emperor.’

This exchange goes to the heart of what makes governments legitimate.… Read the rest

Trump’s Strike On Syria And The English Empire

This piece appeared first on XYZ.

America’s wars always start with a lie. The United States entered World War I in response to the sinking of the civilian ship The Lusitania, however it was later discovered that the ship was being used to supply ordinance to support the Allied war effort against Germany. There is strong evidence that the attack on Pearl Harbour was known in advance by the US military establishment, who let it happen so as to bring the US into the war effort. The Gulf of Tonkin incident which was used to widen US involvement in Vietnam was a sham; LBJ later admitted the Navy might as have been ‘shooting at whales’.… Read the rest
