Reactionary Pinball

1960s alice pinball art via eclectix2

Sometimes I feel a bit like a reactionary hitchhiker. Basically, when one increasingly finds he has very little common ground with mainstream political movements, his nostalgic trips down memory lane may eventually lead him to embark on a journey down “reactionary road.” This highway has many possible lanes and exits. He might find himself heading in the direction of the paleoconservatives’ front porch or the neoreactionaries’ castle, perhaps the libertarians’ weed farm, or the traditionalists’ homestead, the manosphere’s “No Ma’am” meet up, the radfem free bleeders’ pool party, or even the neo-nazis’ Antarctic base. Essentially, one metaphorically “hitchhikes” from one ideological group to the next, with each of them only willing to take him part of the way where he wants to go, and he never may never quite reach that sanctuary where the other escaped runners are waiting for him. Yet, that analogy doesn’t always work… because each group doesn’t necessarily incrementally get you closer to the group where you ultimately fit in. Of course, some people hitchhike with no destination in mind. They just want to go on a mind expanding journey and see where it takes them. For those that have an idea of what they’re looking for though, it can be disheartening. You just kind of bounce around like an idiosyncratic pinball, occasionally hitting spots where the machine lights up briefly(finally! these guys mostly believe the same things I do,) only to be blasted off in the other direction after dealbreaker ideological incompatibilities are uncovered.

So you might ask…why do you need to belong to a group or share a belief system with anyone at all? Well, you don’t of course…unless you want to actually organize with like-minded people and do something.

Reactionary Priorities

It’s unrealistic to believe it’s necessary to find people who agree with us 100% on everything in order to align ourselves with them. So it is sufficient to find people who are with us on our “top priority” issues. For me, I can narrow it down to two: ethnonationalism and futurism (atheism being a distant third.)

Allow me to offer up my own unique “reactionary pinball” trajectory as an illustration of this disillusioning dilemma:

It’s basically a given that as a racially conscious person and an isolationist, I don’t have a place in the republican or democratic parties. I’m an atheist, and a mild feminist so I don’t belong with the paleoconservatives. Though I sympathize with certain MGTOW criticisms about the nature of females, my race realism, mild feminism and dislike of barbarism disqualifies me from the manosphere(I sorta have grown to hate them actually.) Since I oppose warm body democracy, open borders and an unrestrained free market, I’m sure as hell not a libertarian. I also have no desire for what Heinlein called “back to nature cults.” I’m not interested in “homesteading,” homeschooling or living some kind of neo-Amish lifestyle out on the range. Beyond thinking that children should be raised by two heterosexual parents and that transgenderism shouldn’t be celebrated or encouraged, I’m not much of a hardcore traditionalist. I’m fine with kids watching Saturday morning cartoons etc. as long as they get off their asses, exercise and socialize every once in a while.  I’ve concluded that I don’t reject enough of modernity to be a neoreactionary. I’m not willing to dismiss every civilizational experiment humans conducted after the French Revolution as a failure. Hell, I even like a lot of mid century modern art(Gasp! talk about abstract horrorism!)and no, I don’t mean dumb stuff like “numbered cans of shit” or that girl who lays eggs out of her vagina…but I enjoy paintings like this.  Also, despite the trike, they don’t really want nationalists and constantly talk trash about them, parroting nearly every SJW cliche about nationalists being uncouth, white trash, skinheads, etc. It’s also hard to see why anyone would want to expend energy engaging with a movement only to be disrespectfully thought of as merely “fan club” members rather than lower hierarchy contributors. Moving on from that… Given what I’ve said up until now you might be wondering if I’m a communist. Well, although I do prefer communist music and aesthetic, I’m not a communist because I don’t care much about equality(economic, racial or otherwise) and I don’t care for the heavy handed thought policing and labor camps that go along with it. Also, contemporary communism is incompatible with my pro-white racial views. The Communist Party USA, like most of today’s leftist movements is fiercely dedicated to promoting diversity, radical feminism, open borders, the fight against global warning, and almost every other SJW cause under the sun. Practically the only ideological spot left for this ball to roll into is European nationalism/fascism. Yet even the neo-nazis and “White” nationalists are becoming overwhelmed with radical Christians and traditionalists. Based on a few of the tweets I’ve been seeing, some neo-nazis are becoming as prudish as Islamic fundamentalists. I’m also not really into Hitler or Nazi nostalgia(though I’ll admit it’s growing on me a bit.) The Italian Futurism and Fascism movement would have been my scene, but those dudes are long dead, and I can’t travel back in time. The nationalist parties which appear to be gaining popularity in Europe look awesome, but I don’t live there. The ideal kind of soft fascism I’d be looking to support would be a more space oriented variant, somewhat in the vein of Heinlein’s “Starship Troopers.

For now, neo-fascism is where I’m at, though I fully expect to get bounced around some more. Hopefully, I will at least hit some kind of ingroup jackpot bonus before the game tilts from my trying to force it, or I grow tire of playing…and the flippers fail to prevent the ball from going down the drain.

Neoreactionary Miracles on Ice

Is this even actually Antarctica? Who cares... you get the idea.

Is this even actually Antarctica? Who cares… you get the idea.

“We should deport all racists to Antarctica!” It’s a novel idea, one which I frequently see being floated by social justice howlers that think they’re being clever. Yet, rather than cringing in horror at the prospect of being banished to a life of ice piratry with my fellow blue eyed, diversity contract holdouts, my immediate thoughts are more along the lines of “Cool beans! When does the next ferry leave? You’re seriously not going to follow us this time? C’mon, don’t tease me, bro.” 

Sorry to break the news to anti-white, political correctness enthusiasts, but a great many European descendants are so sick and tired of ethnomasochism, cultural marxism, and miscellaneous SJW crap that they would be highly receptive to the suggestion of forming a remote colony at the South Pole. I love the idea, personally.

What kind of people would want to live in Antarctica, anyway?

Among the inhabitants occupying the outer rings of conspiracy kook circles, it is believed that Hitler and other high profile Nazis  managed to escape to an underground Antarctic fortress at the conclusion of World War II. It has even been claimed that several years later there was a secret war in Antarctica to exterminate the remaining German forces as part of Operation HighJump ,which finally ended when the allies destroyed the Nazi’s base with a nuke in the 1950s. Do you actually believe any of this shit? Me neither.

Some even go as far as to speculate that Nazis are still living there, have obtained advanced UFO technology, and are plotting at this very moment to take over the world. There is about as much credible evidence of any of these events taking place as there is of Elvis being still alive and working as a bounty hunter.

Okay, Iet’s divert back from digression for a moment. What SJWs never seem to understand is that regardless of whether or not the environment is great, it’s the people that make or break the place. It is for this same reason, groups flee from resource rich countries with optimal weather, such as Nigeria, preferring to chisel their way into freezertopias like Sweden and Iceland.

When would-be romantic pioneers or even pie in the sky, daydream believers look at Antarctica, they see visions of extravagant ice palaces, the drawbridges of which lead to a techno futuristic viking paradise. When unimaginative PC reptilians salivate at the prospect of exiling thought criminals to that giant frozen landmass in the antarctic circle, all they can envision are a bunch of douchebags they disagree with, huddled together, shivering their privileged, flat white asses off.

So what exactly would an ideal civilization on Antarctica look like? Given the harsh outside conditions, my guess is that it would have to resemble something like the City of Domes in Logan’s Run(which is not to insinuate that it must aesthetically double for a 1970s shopping mall in Dallas, Texas.) However, it should more practically make use of any existing caverns and underground tunnels, modifying and expanding them structurally into a cohesive living space. The end result being an icily enveloped labyrinth, a large scale version of the hydroponic research station in Saturn 3.

While not quite approaching the uninhabitable frigidity of the cryogenic moons of Saturn… by any human’s definition, Antarctica is still colder than shitballs. This isn’t Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island  where one can survive by hunting giant mutant crabs and camping out on the beach. It’s not The Blue Lagoon, Lord of The Flies, Swiss Family Robinson or even Gilligan’s Island. Without adequate electricity and heat, everyone pretty much just dies right away. Luckily, scientific outposts have already shown us the way in this regard. We can utilize diesel generators,  solar and wind power as primary sources of energy for the colony initially, with a long term goal of building a geothermal and/or nuclear power plant(more on this later.)

Any remotely peaceful and advanced civilization that is predominantly made up of people of European ancestry, will eventually have hordes from the third world trying to get in on the action. So it’s important that our ice colony maintain substantial defense systems. It’s necessary for us to keep these people out, since if we allow them to live among us, the temptation to exploit them would be too great. It’s is a naturally occurring, genetic characteristic of being “white,”(call it the “blaxploitation” gene) which we must be forever conscious of when dealing with others.

Like Afghanistan, the mountains and cavernous regions of Antarctica have built in protective features, but without developing highly advanced technology like force fields and mounted laser cannons, a city of several hundred or a few thousand colonists would not be able to repel any serious military assault or UN approved, forced diversity invasion. So called “neo-nazis” aren’t Palestinians either. Transnational corporations and global institutions have little concern for white children, especially those conceived by parents who don’t hate themselves. Human shields are a tacky defense mechanism anyway, the equivalent of kicking a field goal instead of going for it on 4th down in John Madden Football ’93, but a white human shield is merely a “two for the price of one” coupon at the genocide buffet. Bottom line, military tech research must be pursued aggressively, and if this research is primarily directed toward large scale heat generation, we would potentially have a powerful secret weapon at our disposal:

According to Wikipedia:

Antarctica contains 90% of the world’s ice and more than 70% of its freshwater. If all the land-ice covering Antarctica were to melt — around 30 million cubic kilometres of ice — the seas would rise by over 60 metres.

That’s right. All we have to do is threaten to melt a hunk of that sucker, and we could hold the entire world hostage unless they meet our demands. Maybe we can even flood a few insignificant island countries like Haiti or Tuvalu as a demonstration(in the spirit of the G.A.L.A.X.Y. organization) so that everyone will know we mean business. Mwahaha.

How’s that for irony? Banish Saltine-Americans to a harsh existence in Antarctica for demanding their borders not be flooded with third world populations, only to have them end up melting the place into a weapon to flood your bordersIt gets better though, Antarctica has a high enough elevation in most parts so that we could withstand the effects of our own attacks.

Are you starting to warm up to the idea of colonizing Antarctica yet? Are your nipples already getting prematurely hard in anticipation of the cold? Mine, too. Unfortunately, there are some ginormous glaciers in the path of making this Titanic bon voyage. In other words, there are a couple of major obstacles in the way of us doing anything on Antarctica, many more than a couple actually, but the ones I’m going to mention are such showstoppers that they render the others largely moot.

1. Despite their gleeful demeanor when suggesting people they disagree with should move to Antarctica, social justice warriors would in fact, never allow it. Environmentalists don’t care when they import millions of poor people who drive gas guzzling jalopies and pollute the environment, but if they wouldn’t even permit oil drilling in the Alaskan Wildlife Refuge, do you really believe they’re going to let people whom they perceive to be “neo nazis” put up condos on Antarctica and build power plants there? Get real.

2.  Any important future civilization should be heavily invested in space travel as a means of advancing the interests, survivability and knowledge of man.

The challenge of the spaces between the worlds is a stupendous one; but, if we fail to meet it, the story of our race will be drawing to a close. Humanity will have turned its back upon the still untrodden heights and will be descending the long slope that stretches, across a thousand million years of time, down to the shores of the primeval sea. — Arthur C. Clarke

Well, there are few worse places for setting up a space station than the South Pole. Think about it. Even in the ideal climate of Florida, NASA will abort a launch at Cape Canaveral if there is so much as a mild breeze in the air. I can’t imagine that the Ice Planet Zerolike weather conditions of Antarctica would provide a suitable environment for sending spaceships and satellites into orbit. It’s a no go. The only way I could see us overcoming this problem would involve nesting the space station and launch facility within the interior of a hollowed out volcano, like Blofeld’s impressive Japanese base in You Only Live Twice. Does anyone still have access to the blueprints for that thing?

3. The Antarctic Treaty System. This is the big one, and for our purposes, it bites the big one. Since 1961, Antarctica has been governed by a treaty which essentially limits it to being used for scientific research purposes only, states that land there cannot be claimed or colonized, and explicitly forbids any non research oriented military activity there. Read it and weep:

No acts or activities taking place while the present Treaty is in force shall constitute a basis for asserting , supporting or denying a claim to territorial sovereignty in Antarctica or create any rights of sovereignty in Antarctica. No new claim, or enlargement of an existing claim to territorial sovereignty in Antarctica shall be asserted while the present Treaty is in force.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that it’s highly unlikely that signatory countries involved or any of the scientists currently holed up in research stations there would be cool with us creating a  futuristic, ethnonationalist enclave there. If that’s not a boner killer, I don’t know what is. That being said, I’m still optimistic that even this obstacle can be overcome. Perhaps some of those countries can be bribed, if we can manage to get someone wealthy like Peter Thiel on board. Russia did sell us Alaska after all.

Despite the light-hearted tone of this essay, the idea of escaping a world which no longer values our historical contributions and that has become increasingly hostile to our mere presence, is a real one. The concept of building new civilizations in seemingly uninhabitable far away lands remains a serious proposition. Whether it’s condos on the moon, pyramids on Mars, or golden igloos in the hills of Antarctica, we will find a way to end up somewhere other than the gulag. For those who would be happy to see us go, be careful what you wish for. And to all my creative friends and allies who long to have bizarre celebrations and secure a future for civilized children… 

This dream is for you, so pay the price. Make one dream come true, you know it’s on ice.

Chrono Trigger, An Unconventional Model For Monarchy

From the spring of 2001 until roughly the winter of 2002, I retreated heavily into the nostalgic fantasy world of Super Nintendo RPGs. Unsatisfied with the society as it existed around me I began to shun what I perceived as a dying civilization and embrace the superiority of imagined simulations. I did this not as some neck beard D&D geek or anime/Japanese fetishist, but as an able bodied young man, exhausted and from the negative cultural stimuli induced sensory overload of Los Angeles and the southwest living experience. Call it my own private neoreaction if you will.

I know what you’re thinking. “Dude, video games aren’t real life.” True enough, or is it? Are thoughts not real? Are daydreams invalid because you can’t hold them in your hand? One of the common criticisms of modern society is that people are so fixated on electronic gadgetry and computer simulated realities that they miss out on “real life,” you know..going outside and shit. But what if there’s nothing out there anymore? What is one to do when they reach a point when their civilization has degenerated to the tipping point, where the constantly advancing imagined simulations actually seems more fulfilling? Soon the day may come when a perfected robot woman will turn you on sexually more than some chubby hobag you meet in a bar. Anyway, that’s not really the point. Rather, things that seem like a waste of time may not be a complete waste of time. Cultural awakenings can start in the strangest of places. Just as philosophical literature influenced people for thousands of years, who is to say that newer forms of media can’t inspire people in real ways? They certainly did in my case. Laugh as you might at the notion of these 90’s video games serving as the inspiration for some real life medieval-futurist state, I can pretty much guarantee you that the Japanese guys who programmed these games and conjured up the fictitious worlds they contain, were more intelligent than almost anyone who’s been elected to public office in a Western democracy in the past 30 years.

I began calling myself a monarchist and yearning for a techno-futuristic monarchy in 2002, not as result of watching VHS tapes of 60 Minutes interviews with the Shah of Iran, romantic notions of the Legend of King Arthur, or perusing the musings of Pliny the Elder. Rather, it was the beauty and ambiance of the elaborately constructed worlds of games like Zelda – Link To The Past, Illusion of Gaia, Secret of Evermore, Earthbound, Secret of Mana, as well as Final Fantasy IV, V, and VI. The ultimate of course, was Chrono Trigger.

The game featured both Middle Ages style monarchy (in the form of King Guardia and his daughter, Princess Marle) as well as the techno-futurist variety (Queen Zeal and Princess Schala) It was unique in that it was a time travel RPG, allowing you to experience the same world in several different eras, ranging from prehistoric times to a post apocalyptic dystopian future, and going back and forth to do things which would affect future events.

It’s through this tampered, blurry intertwining of time periods and the elements of a homogenized society bound together by its traditions/customs, combined with modern technological advancements, that an ideal world begins to emerge. There are still kings and queens, fortresses and town fairs, but also fast talking robots and sophisticated airships. We want futuristic monarchy after all, and renaissance festival jousting and miniature golf style castles aren’t going to cut it.

Typical of monarchies, the justice system may be lacking a bit, as early on Crono winds up sentenced to death on a rather dubious charge of kidnapping the princess. But hey, it’s a small price to pay to live in a society with no knockout game, gang rape, or anarcho-tyranny in the mix. Women can walk freely in Medina village wearing mildly revealing outfits without fear of being catcalled by crude and imposing third world caricatures.

On a somewhat deeper level, Chrono Trigger even curiously incorporates an “enlightenment” subplot into it’s storyline:

The Enlightened Ones are the people of Zeal, magically empowered, impossibly cultured, and ardently devoted to the highest arts and exploration of human potential. The Enlightened Ones formally became a people after the Sun Stone was located and Zeal was created; the group able to use the power of the artifact took to the sky, and developed a begrudging prejudice against the Earthbound. The Enlightened soon created a culture of their own; they gilded their cities with the colors of silver, white, and gold, and filled them to the brim with knowledge and rumination. Knowledge and erudition reached a peak that would never again be matched, as the people of Zeal tackled philosophical questions such as the presence of fate and delved into the fundamental composition of the universe.

Their chosen King and Queen governed the Enlightened Ones; the monarchs were magic innates, as were the Gurus of Time, Reason, and Life, who commanded much wisdom in their studies. The byproduct of Enlightened civilization was hubris and blind ambition; they considered the Earthbound subhuman, and had visions of immortality. The pursuit of immortality led the Enlightened Ones to tap into Lavos’s power using the Mammon Machine, which would cause the destruction of Zeal by awaking the monster beneath the planet’s crust. Though Zeal was totally annihilated, several Enlightened Ones survived the Fall of Zeal and stumbled upon Last Village, the last remaining human settlement. Stripped of power sources to leech magic from and their dwellings in the sky, the Enlightened Ones could no longer maintain prejudice against the Earthbound and mingled with the former cave dwellers. This marked the end the Enlightened Ones and the Earthbound as formal divisions of people.

In our lives, time travel is not yet possible (and travel to the past may never be) so the most we can achieve it to create or recreate the time and place we would prefer to live in. Plodding along through the tattered shreds of fading Western empires and an increasingly dumbed down, consumerist American ghettocracy, I think to myself, “This place ain’t it.

If you’re open to exploring alternatives to warm body democracy, I implore you to have a brief glimpse at the world as it is in Chrono Trigger and see if you don’t conclude that it’s more appealing than our own (aside from having to battle monsters.) If we do find it superior, then why not strive to create something similar? Thoughts are real things, else they would not exist… even in our minds. Yet we needn’t be content to think certain kinds of thoughts and ideas must exist only in our minds.

You may say I’m a radical dreamer, but I’m not the only one.

The Resistance to White Genocide is Made Up of Phantoms

Phantoms

According to the prevailing wisdom of the Cathedral and it’s politically correct “hivemind” allies, we’re nothing but ghosts. For those of us that are resisting “white genocide”(or whatever euphemism you wish to use to describe the systematic elimination of Caucasians and our culture from western countries, by means of forced assimilation and integration of people that didn’t ask for it, didn’t vote for it and don’t want it) the epitaph is all but written on our tombstones. Generally, rational people who believe the notion of a “white genocide” is absurd, are thinking in terms of people being marched off to death camps and dumped into mass graves, Pol Pot style, with creepy music playing in the background. But there is more than one way to destroy a population. It can be done by demoralization, through propaganda framed to make people ashamed of their ancestors’ achievements, mass immigration from vastly incompatible cultures, economic and government policies which favor breeding of certain groups, intimidating people out of neighborhoods through violent crimes. All of these things are currently being done to white people.

Not all of what is occuring is intentional, and some of it is just childlike naivete about human nature and a road to hell paved with good intentions. The result is the same though, whether you call it genocide, assisted mass-suicide or just a few hundred million dumb kids playing out in traffic at rush hour. It’s a massive reduction of people of European ancestry and the end of western civilization as we know it, slowly to be replaced by a hodgepodge of ethnicities from primitive and barbarous cultures. It’s the early stages of Heinlein’s classic, “Farnham’s Freehold” in the making. I ask you honestly, are the emasculated White man-servants in Heinlein’s novel that far from the ethnomasochist diversity officers we have today?

Farnham's Freehold, our future?

Farnham’s Freehold, our future?

If one is to believe the current purveyors of ethnomasochism and “anti-whiteism” are concerned, our demise is inevitable, resistance is futile, and we are destined to be relegated to the dustbin of history in order to make way for a new and more noble, third world population. “We’ve had a good run! Just enjoy the time you have left and soak it all in!”  seems to be the approach most establishment Whites of any stripe are wanting to take… just ride bikes, drink microwbrewed beer in Portland or Austin, reminisce about that time we put a man on the moon, take selfies while hiking, and try to gain social approval and higher white person status by appearing more apologetic for what our ancestors did to the Indians, Blacks, Japanese, Vietnamese, Nicaraguans, etc. In the consensus driven view of social justice warriors, our future history is as foregone a conclusion as Custer’s Last Stand and the massacre of his forces at Little Big Horn.

But what if it isn’t? What if we resist anyway and give Western Civilization the spirited defense it deserves? Maybe Kyle Reese was right in The Terminator when he said the future is not set. Perhaps our demographic demise is not inevitable, at least not everywhere. What if instead of listening to SJW losers and defeatists, we take the advice of Gretchen Ross in Donnie Darko and “go back in time and take all those hours of pain and darkness and replace them with something better”(which should be less difficult given that we don’t actually even have to time travel backwards at this stage in the culture war.)

One of my favorite episodes of The Twilight Zone was “The 7th Is Made Up Of Phantoms.” That reminds me, can we please go back in time and get better TV shows, starting in the late 90s? A relic of the “pre-PC” television era, the episode is the story of three National Guardsmen in the 1960’s doing training maneuvers with their tank in Montana near the site of the famous site of Custer’s Last Stand. Somehow they mysteriously get transported back in time to 1876 and decide to join in the Battle of Little Big Horn to try to alter the outcome in Custer’s favor and thus change history. They are ultimately unsuccessful, and all three are killed in the massacre.

Their present day captain, distraught by their disappearance, soon discovers their names on the wall of the Custer Battlefield National Monument. He mournfully remarks that it’s “too bad they couldn’t have brought the tank up. It would have helped.”  One of the reasons I love this episode so much is that it celebrates our heritage without apology. There is not a shred of white guilt to be found in it except for the guilt they would feel if they decided not to take the chance and enter the battle.

Children today are taught that General Custer was a villain and the expansion in the west was a genocidal war against what can now only be referred to as “Native Americans.” A television show with the premise of three white soldiers traveling back in time and attempting to help Custer and the 7th Cavalry achieve victory against the Indians would never be allowed on network tv today. It would be a huge scandal and there would be boycotts, lots of apologizing, presidential lecturing and SJW hashtag activism galore.

Well fuck all that and the horse it rode in on.

What if we brought the tank to the battle?(metaphorically not like an actual tank.) If we utilize the advantages which largely have been historically unique to European people: science, technology, creativity, ingenuity, etc and combine them with our pioneering spirit, we may yet be able to alter the course of our future and preserve some semblance of our way of life. But first we have to wake people up to the real phenomenon of “white genocide,” or Western Civilization may become a ghost town .
