It’s attracted a lot of free riders off the coat-tails of various claimed ‘successes’.
Myself, I don’t think memes count as work, they’re just a bit of fun slinging at the precious Narrative.
I’ve been watching very closely and thinking carefully about The Next Step.
I can’t honestly say there is one. If this turns out to be a purely-memetic trend, it will shortly implode, possibly to change into a more extreme form. I know there are people who probably want that to happen, the SJWs in particular, this way when they scream ‘literally Hitler’ something might stick.
I think the core issue with AR is attracting too many socialists.
They think they can play both sides in effect, a new breed. I’ve complained in the past about the fence-sitting social liberal, economic conservative but this is the opposite. I’ve never seen it before. The social conservative, economic socialist. It makes no logical sense whatsoever. The economics and social policies must match. This is looking like edgy libertarianism, with additional servings of autism and grievance.
We have plenty of just grievance, we don’t need to make any up.
Don’t get me started on the weakness of civic nationalism.
Too much conflict, too few standards.
There’s no such thing as a right-wing socialist, FFS.
We need K-selection, not slightly weaker r.
There’s too many heavy symbolism issues dragging the good ideas back. History didn’t work or we’d still have it.
There’s too many crazies or obnoxious fools being let in, if they signal.
Ahem, since when did we give a damn about virtue signalling?
I covered this before in the ‘hypocrisy of the signalling right’.
They’re not held to any standard. Most are atheist and happily genetic suicide.
We need a minimum barrier of knowledge without blocking people who want to understand.
A few have clear disturbances that nobody begs them to correct.
Filtering out the embittered (especially at Mom/women) would do a world of good, they tend to congregate on that idea. Fine, go live on a homoerotic island with all your bro-boyfriends. It’s like claiming a modern Matriarchy, it’s absurd. Some MRA and MGTOW types have been picked up and given a platform to turn us against one another. Division in a gender war is what the SJWs want. It’s anti-natal.
The men do not police the other men and naturally the women can’t do it. Few women stick around for the general shouting-down from the obnoxious oafs. It drives away that spirit of cooperation required.
What’s the plan? What’s the goal?
Memes are beyond the lolz, they contain ideas. They carry philosophies. They are not vapid insults. See Wrath of Gnon’s superb interview.
This is why the Left can’t meme. They lack the underpinning of reality.
They’re right, though. It is a war of ideas… but it never ends. Where is the vanguard?
We may be skirting into similar delusory territory. It’s like that silly ‘get back in the kitchen’ meme. Meanwhile, the West dies.
I find myself going back to the neoreactionary materials, as you must’ve noticed. Other traditionalist places too. There’s only so many times you can see the n-word thrown around for shock value before you realize you’re not going to get an intellectual debate about the future of the West and civilization with these children.
A change is coming and we need to clean house. The nihilists and the promiscuous are the worst – the prosocial rot, the antisocial cancer. Druggies after that. All degenerate really means is antisocial, as in, bad for society, anti-societal and dyscivic. These ‘hobbies’ are not individual, they cause social harm e.g. antibiotic resistance.
We cannot decry degeneracy when we allow degenerates. We’re not Jesus, we can’t absolve them. If they’re hell-bent, so be it. It’s God’s will, they deserve to be there. Missionaries do not fear God because they have a Messiah complex, trying to save everyone. Few deserve salvation. You need leave them only breadcrumbs – those are memes.
The Left is strong because it is a lifestyle and because they feel strong and united from the cheerleader effect. The media crumbling, the narrative imploding, damages their bubble illusion.
You can’t attract good people with negative degenerates.
We don’t want to implode like the shitheap that was the manosphere.
This is without going into the distinct probability of black ops. I mean, wouldn’t you?
This MSM attention is making me nervous for the first time ever.
Woman’s intuition, something is wrong. This has been too quiet, too easy for a while.
We don’t have any lifestyle guidance. None of the basics our forefathers took for granted. Places like artofmanliness come close to what I mean. Nothing about music or art or books to read. Where is the right’s culture?
Where are the lists? Where are our curricula?
We need a vision of utopia. Or what are we aiming for?
We’d be weakened as pure, modernist reaction to online sensationalism. Event-based. We need to become the event others respond to.
If this becomes a popularity contest at the expense of substance, it’s a pageant. There are too many farces of Patriarchs that can’t even do their own laundry let alone raise a family and keep a wife happy.
We can do better than the Patrick Bateman metrosexual model of masculinity, all fake muscles and ‘notches’.
These are the people who don’t get that Fight Club is satirical. They’re living the ridiculous.
The West doesn’t want more cushion dogs. Speaking of, treating dogs like kids is creepy. Stop it. You’re as bad as cat ladies. It’s Paris Hilton Syndrome.
The energy-giving, useful people like me and others are retreating. We don’t want to cope with the dross.
I think we’re unconsciously waiting for them to get bored or self-destruct, as hedons always do. Then we sweep back in to clean up. I fear we may have invited in the ideological equivalent of locusts, they kill any movement they join like losers picking up a fashion trend. The degenerate are the most worthless humans you shall ever encounter, it’s like babysitting children. They slag off snapchat but use ‘XD’ seriously. Male thots. All about attention. Nix the narcissists in your midst or perish. They aren’t allies but fairweather friends.
Look up the rest of the phrase ‘birds of a feather flock together…’.
The r-types will necessarily drive away the Ks. Problem is, this is a pure K-movement. They’re the barbarians, the fifth column. They don’t want change but they seek our power, to take it. What do you expect from socialists? All they do is eat, eat, eat away at the People.
Man card isn’t a thing. It doesn’t exempt you from explanation, falling in line with the group’s standard of conformity, from working yourself, making changes and it certainly doesn’t give you a license to whine, bitch, order around women or better men. In the Old Testament, men had rites of passage and standards of etiquette to have any power, or else they were children.
You fire the lazy employee. You shun the slothful activist. This isn’t a fucking hippy commune.
This is work, bitch.
We don’t have champers for socialists. The hen keeps her bread. Welcome to K-shift, have fun.
