The original Mencius Moldbug essays were great; very interesting stuff, thought provoking, broke a lot of taboos.
There must be something about Jewish verbal intelligence that just captivates the goyim, in the same way that ancient primitive tribes got high off of a small dose of the venom of snakes or various parasites. It figures that conservatives, right wingers, and reactionaries – i.e., the low IQ, low intelligence, low imagination, low executive functioning segment of Whites – get so enthralled by Jewish verbal venom. The same way dumb Whites smoke weed or take some drug and think they are having “deep thoughts.”
So these clever, thought provoking essays by Moldbug, essentially just some “devil’s advocate” push back against modern, post-industrial era “Enlightenment” philosophy, were turned into a bona fide religious cult by former Catholics (and it is mostly Catholics, Catholicism being the religion of the dumbest Whites and half-White Westerners.)
So Moldbug says, hey, we all assume that monarchy is worse than democracy, but is it? Here’s some advantages that monarchy had over democracy.
What do the cultists do? They immediately take all this as not an intellectual exercise to re-think some of our cherished assumptions – oh, no. They take this as a literal command and start declaring themselves “monarchists” and even clever goys like Blog.Jim.com start picking apart Donald Trump’s tie colors and Victorian era British fashion for clues to the “soul” of monarchy.
And just like bored White housewives who are really into hiring “past lives consultants” to tell them they all are the reincarnation of Cleopatra, ALL – 100% – of these neo-reactionaries automatically assume they are the new Brahmins, the new priest class, if not monarchist pretenders themselves. Not a single one of them thinks, “hey, if we restore the monarchy, I’ll be a pig farming peasant like 95% of my fellow Whites.” Oh, no, not these Big Brained Brads, they are just sure that in a restored monarchy they will get pride of place.
It’s all so much like “Reverse Psychology” you used to trick your kid brother into giving you an extra helping of dessert. “You didn’t really want that ice cream anyway, did you?” Like Tom Sawyer and white-washing the fence, these neo-reactionaries all buy it, hook, line, and sinker. “Well, democracy is bad, therefore, we need to find a literal king, with a robe and bejeweled crown, and some bald headed “celibate priest” to restore “Throne and Altar.”
The religious ones are the worst of all. I hate to be one of those types – athiests annoy me as much as anyone – but let’s not beat around the bush here. If you were born in Mosul, you’d be a Muslim and you’d believe the Koran. If you were born in Bangalore, you’d be a Hindu praying to Vishnu. But you went to Catholic school or some Protestant church, so therefore you’re a Christian. You didn’t investigate all the religions and them decide that Christianity was the right one. Of course not. You were brainwashed as a child to believe in Christianity and now you have an emotional attachment to it. If you had NOT been emotionally conditioned, you’d find the Bible, the Old Testament stories – and especially the New Testament stories – to be a third-rate bunch of fairy tales without even the positive, heroic spirit of Hercules.
I personally find the English of the King James absolutely profound, but at least I’m self-aware enough to know it’s due to my childhood conditioning. You can take the most trite statements – even absurd and self-contradictory statements, and rephrase them into the King James English and to me it sounds utterly profound.
When the Beatles’ Paul McCartney smoked pot for the first time, he had some of his paid flunkies follow him around and write down all of his “profound” thoughts and “brilliant lyrics” but the next day – after the weed wore off – it was all just stoner gibberish. Have any of you religious people ever actually sobered up long enough to THINK about the trite and often nonsensical crap your religion teaches you? Typically, it’s either just obvious truisms (that are only profound to children learning them for the very first time) or “koans” that are actually just artifacts of human language and typically you grow out of that “profound” feeling once you’ve grown out of freshman year university classes.
Just a typical example: I’m sure that the sexual promiscuity – and resultant STDs – of the ancient era caused a serious backlash when sexual restraint all of a sudden seemed like an important spiritual discipline. You can see this in the Stoics, who were just as sexually conservative as the most conservative Catholics – sex was only within marriage, for reproduction.
Yet take a reactionary and they think, “well, if sexual indulgence is bad, then complete denial of sexuality must be good!” “If democracy is bad, then monarchy must be good!”
“If people aren’t actually completely ‘equal’ in every way, that means the best society is a totalitarian dictatorship, and OF COURSE I’ll be part of the ruling class, after all, I’m such an intellectual I read brilliant Jews like Curtis Yarvin, I will surely be a famous priest in the court of the new monarch and rule over the peasant pig farmer, not a slave to a syphilitic dictator who rules through genocide and violence while wearing robes and claiming a divine mandate from a vision he had while tripping on the fungus from moldy bread!”
I mean, have you people ever actually read the book of Daniel in the Bible? It’s not “profound” at all, it’s the ravings of a madman. It’s even worse with those people into “mysticism” that think the Jew Kaballah is somehow interesting. Hell, the smartest Jew even pointed out that that the author of the Kaballah was likely suffering from dementia – he called it “the product of neurological degeneration.”
The worse, most awful pop song of the 1990s was “Mister Jones and Me” where the skinny White wrote a love song to some old Black drunk blues musician he met at a bar, and this old Negro’s drunken rambling was turned into profound and poetic “wisdom.”
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away. Reactionaries are even most easily manipulated than liberals or hoi polloi. Reactionaries are the “goth” in high school, the Adam’s Family types. Whatever the mainstream believes, the react against it and believe the exact opposite.
But of course “each thing evokes its opposite” which means that “reactionaries” are the least interesting, and the least thoughtful, people of all.
They think they are fighting priests, dissident intellectuals, and restorers of tradition, when in reality, they are just that stupid kid that got fooled by Tom Sawyer into white washing the fence.
