Anissimov on Infiltration; Why Social Conservatism is Necessary

Social Conservatism and Drawing a Line in the Sand
There is a certain basic amount of social conservatism which must be met among all those who label themselves “neoreactionary”. For instance, someone who is as socially liberal as the average member of the Democratic party would not qualify as a neoreactionary, even if they insisted upon using the label. I want to say that this wouldn’t be controversial among anybody, but I don’t even know anymore. That is a profoundly negative sign, a sign that we may be falling prey to Conquest’s Second Law: Any organization not explicitly right-wing sooner or later becomes left-wing. In other words, leftward drift is insidious.
That didn't take long at all.
“Neo” is not an infinite license to throw social conservatism out the window and allow libertarians to redefine neoreaction as “politically schizophrenic leftish anarcha-feminism” or whatever confused Whiggery their minds are still stuck on. The “neo” is a new discovery of reactionary thought, not the complete mutation of reactionary thought until it is in lockstep with modern liberal licentiousness. Any “reactionary”, neo or otherwise, who cannot react against liberalism and progressivism, is not a reactionary at all, nor a “neoreactionary.”
Lots more at the link. I have seen this going around. It's basically the "democracy sucks" wing of the Left, which has always existed. For the progressives, they need to take one step to  keep the game going: end elections and seize power. Permanently remove the threat of the yahoos. Yeah, Obama won and the demographics look good, but more Hispanics are checking the white box on the census. You don't think they'd ever vote for Palin, do you?

Anissimov also talks about the libertarians. They are in it for the process. They'll let the reactionaries go off and form their state of reaction, but they won't move there, they'll live in the low tax/socially liberal country that probably, if ever person in America who wanted that society moved there, would have a population not exceeding 3 million. But they won't like the state of reaction. And since the state of reaction will have a very small, but very powerful government that will attract the K-selected, it would quickly become the "hate state" and "something should have to be done about it" would become the popular opinion in the popular opinion forming progressive land.

There was a comment thread on dark enlightenment or neoreactionaries on reddit. One commenter said he was for the self-determination aspect (i'm glossing over a lot of details) and a DE/NRxer replied, what if that leads to very socially conservative society where pornography is banned, but everyone is cool with it? The commenter replied they'd start smuggling porn into that country. That describes the attitude of many (but far from all) libertarians.

A couple of days ago, Anissimov wrote The Purpose of Reactionaries
As reactionaries, we must reject behaviors and lifestyles which are destructive to strong families. Divorce, men pretending to be women, women pretending to be men, those who promote inter-gender conflict, men and women rejecting intimacy, bearing children out of wedlock; all these follies threaten the future and strength of our people. Societies that embrace them will die, those that reject them will live.
To the list add: reject pornography. People may struggle with that, but one must be firmly against it and seek to minimize it.

Ramzpaul also had an excellent summary of what is wrong with the PUA community at the end of this video:



The advice goes for individuals, but also for community. To build is to exclude. When a sculptor takes a block of stone, he does not add to it, he chisels it away. Inclusion is a fool's errand. Inclusion is a doctrine of progressivism: multiculturalism and "tolerance", in which tolerance means except everything and exclude nothing. The point isn't that reactionaries need decide how to exclude people, it is that a reactionary society excludes people because it is pursuing the goals such as order, stability, low time preference. A healthy reactionary/socially conservative society recognizes that divorce is like an infectious disease. Tolerance for weakness and sin among us will not help lift us up, but drag more of us down. Tolerate r-selected behaviors and they will spread. Enforce K-selected norms and they will dominate.

Right-wing societies survive because they fight to preserve order amidst chaos,  left-wing society let's the entropy come. This is perhaps one of the best descriptions of this aspect of a right-wing society:

The "Faustian" alternative to "classic" civilization really is no civilization at all. Goethe's tragedy remains the great modern epic. Faust has exhausted philosophy and science before signing up with Mephistopheles. At the end of his misadventures, his final hope is to live among a free people on free soil, on land reclaimed from the sea, an existence so precarious that it would rule out the cardinal sin of complacency. United against a sea that at any moment might rush in, Faust's people would live in a state of constant mobilization. One wonders if Goethe would have recognized his ideal in modern Israel. Tragically, however, Faust employs tyrannical methods to advance his project, which turns out to be delusional. Because Faust never ceased to strive through all his failed projects, Goethe allows his soul to be saved. That offers scant comfort to the rest of us, who observe that Faust left nothing but ruin behind him in all his striving.
The left says: come on in, the water's fine. Today, everyone is in the ocean. There is no dry land, not much larger than a church or a house anyway. To reclaim the land from the sea takes a mighty effort, but to begin you must start pumping out the water.

At Least Neoreaction Asks Good Questions

If nothing else, the neoreactionaries are good at identifying a problem and asking pointed questions.

An Open Letter to Feminist Women of Color…

I bring this up because this sort of behavior is symbolic of how all white feminists have treated their feminist sisters of color, treating them as props for social status and using them as stepping stones on their career path, if not ignoring them completely. Search your feelings. You know this to be true.
Feminism was never about you. It was about white women, and you’re just a footnote to them. Have you ever felt that sometimes white feminists were being disingenuous around you, or maybe even toward you? Trust those feelings.
Now, I admit it, white feminists are powerful allies. I can understand if you don’t want to break with them entirely. Still, it seems clear that their interests are not your interests, and tying yourself to them completely will serve only to help them get what they want at the expense of you getting what you want.
More on the topic here: An Interview With Janet “JudgyBitch” Bloomfield
Let me state up front that I don’t believe feminism engaged in any kind of mass conspiracy to essentially enslave black women – but the effect has been exactly that. It’s a nice coincidence that feminists seem deeply unwilling to address. There are two things working in concert: women in the paid labor force and single motherhood.
In order for (mostly) white women to enter the paid labor force with their fancy college degrees in reading and feeling, they need an exploitable class of individuals to provide domestic services at wages that won’t eat up their own wages. Maids, nannies, child care workers, housekeepers – these are some of the shittiest, most underpaid jobs a woman can get. And those are jobs that are disproportionately performed by women of color. In order to incentive women of color to accept these shitty jobs with crappy wages and no benefits, they need to have no plausible alternatives.
Enter the single mother. By creating a culture that is welcoming of single motherhood – de-stigmatizing it and treating it as a “lifestyle choice”,and then adding the widespread of incarceration of men of color and black men in particular, that incentive is in place. Daddy in jail and Mommy a single mother is a perfect recipe for creating an exploitable class of women who can pick up all the white lady’s shit work.

Deep Thoughts on President Obama

Police Commissioner in NH town has deep thoughts on Obama, airs his views and refuses to apologize for them.
"I believe I did use the 'N' word in reference to the current occupant of the Whitehouse (sic)," Copeland said in the email. "For this, I do not apologize -- he meets and exceeds my criteria for such."

Time to Organize A Move Your Deposits and Business From SunTrust Day...or Not

SunTrust Cuts Business Ties With Benham Brothers After Conservative Views Attacked
In their statement, the Benhams said they “recognize SunTrust’s right to hire or fire any real estate broker they choose but do not support the decision” to fire independent franchisees that are associated with them. Many of these franchisees, they said, “do not hold the same beliefs” they do.
“As Americans we find ourselves at a crossroads and are forced with a decision to either stand up or sit down,” David Benham said. “Evidently, SunTrust’s longstanding commitment to diversity must not include our historic Christian values.”
One such franchisee is Joel Morimanno of Benham Real Estate of SW Florida.
“I believe SunTrust has requested a blanket reassignment of all Benham Brother listings across the nation because of their Christian beliefs,” Morimanno said in a statement to TheDC.
“The success of my business is based on my performance,” he said. “I work hard to maintain a Preferred Status with all my clients. It appears that SunTrust simply reassigned the listing based on other external factors.”
In an email obtained by TheDC, Morimanno was told by SunTrust’s third-party asset management company: “Unfortunately the seller (SunTrust) is asking for this property to be re-assigned. This was the direct clients (SunTrust) request. I really appreciate all your efforts on this property…This one is out of our control. It is really nothing you did.”
“It is highly unusual for a big asset manager to reassign assets without cause. I even offered to waive my commissions on the sale of the property but they refused and said they were required to reassign the property,” Morimanno explained.
Organize a day and have everyone move their deposits and business from SunTrust. Maybe June 3? That is the day of Saints Charles Lwanga and Companions.

One of 22 Ugandan martyrs, Charles Lwanga is the patron of youth and Catholic action in most of tropical Africa. He protected his fellow pages (aged 13 to 30) from the homosexual demands of the Bagandan ruler, Mwanga, and encouraged and instructed them in the Catholic faith during their imprisonment for refusing the ruler’s demands. For his own unwillingness to submit to the immoral acts and his efforts to safeguard the faith of his friends, Charles was burned to death at Namugongo on June 3, 1886, by Mwanga’s order.

Society Cannot Tolerate White Liberals Anymore

Ever notice that white liberals like to scream about how white NFL quarterbacks or Silicon Valley programmers are, but they never notice how the liberal media is dominated by white people? Something must be done about this. It is intolerable than in 2014, liberalism is still run by white people. The Democratic Party is almost 50% minority, but aside from the 50% minority president, does anyone see much minority in the faces of Democrats? No, instead it is white, white, white. Turn on the TV and the liberal media is dominated by white faces. Sure, the racists at Fox will have white people, but what can we do about that? Racist gonna raciss'. But we can do something about racism in the liberal media because liberals care about diversity, but they aren't practicing it, at least according to this article written by a white guy who is a minority because Hispanic.
