When Dream Worlds Collide – Right Futurists vs. Little House on The Praireactionaries and 9/11 Truthers

sun17

Well well well, look what the cat dragged in…a live rabbit! So, the 18 and 1/2 minute gap in updates wasn’t due to the ghost of Rose Mary Woods logging in and deleting my posts. It can be explained by the fact I was busy moving. Yep, I sold my swingin 60’s condo that I bought five years ago at the bottom of the real estate market, took the money and ran to some new digs…another 60’s pad with brick walls, vines and all. To celebrate, I mad a trip to the local strip club where I attempted to seek out the most traditionally minded female available. It always happens that when I go to these places, the only girls I really end up being attracted to are the cocktail waitresses. Is it because they’re less available I wonder? Or is it due to the fact that they are aesthetically beautiful enough to make money and tips without even having to reveal their bare breasts? The inquiring mind never rests it would seem. One thing I found pleasing was that instead of the horrid, ghetto pop music you normally have to endure at these strip clubs…they actually played a lot of decent jams…including but not limited to Edwyn Collins’ “A Girl Like You,” from the Empire Records soundtrack. The strip club isn’t necessarily an ideal place to find romance, but at least it’s a guaranteed return on one’s investment.

Anyhow, I realize I should probably be posting about the feral black riots in Baltimore, but to be honest, I just don’t find them very interesting. Writing about blacks going buck wild, looting, shouting grievances in barely intelligible vocalizations….it’s just too easy and pointless a subject to tackle. People like Colin Flaherty and Paul Kersey already do a great job covering the topic of modern black “behavior,” but honestly anyone who doesn’t get the picture by now is either hopelessly brainwashed or out of their gourd. Sooner or later, we just have to write off the remaining ethnomasochists as a lost cause and move on. I am attempting to get beyond those discussions and focus my energy on the future. Yeah, we know diversity sucks and multiculturalism has been a failure. What are we going to do about it? What’s the plan, man? As a teeth clenched Charlton Heston pondered to Nova after escaping Ape City on horseback, “Where in the hell do we go from here?”  As always, I will continue to attempt to provide options, including one based on that very remark(though not in this post.)

Moving On

The coalition of AltRight factions is increasingly exposed as something comically shaky, flimsily duct taped together by a vague hatred of SJW culture and always ready to fall apart at the slightest bit of pressure. As I alluded to in Reactionary Pinball, good luck finding very many people on the far right who share enough of your views to feel like you are comfortably part of anything cohesive.

Rabbit vs. “The Little House on The Praireactionaries”

My first recent run in with the LHOTPR was back when one of them got triggered by a friend and I having a discussion about some of our favorite childhood cartoons. The LHOTPR basically said that if we watched cartoons as children, then we had essentially a soft, terrible, modern childhood and needed to be “put down.” Whatever, dude. I’m sure your children won’t grow up to resent you and rebel after being forced to build outhouses and do manual labor while other kids are doing fun stuff that’s more beneficial than it seems.

I also had a lengthy debate on Twitter with the anti-vaccination crowd. Being a futurist who loves modern medicine and hates third world diseases, I’m pro-vaccine obviously(my stepdad and brother are both physicians,) but I don’t wish to rehash the whole debate. I will defer to John Derbyshire’s logical comments on the issue, weighing the benefits vs the risks, since they mirror my thoughts exactly. I only bring this issue up, because it highlights an important schism in the AltRight, those who support conventional science vs. homeopathic medicine etc. Some people are so distrustful and conspiracy oriented(ie worried about fluoride, chlorine in the drinking water etc) that they would probably prefer well water from their backyard. If Oregon Trail style reaction is your thing – building up your immunity the old fashioned way, fording rivers, sewing your own garments, eating organic produce, shitting in outhouses…etc. don’t let me stop you. I’ll be getting off the revolutionary horse carriage at a different stop though. As Toad once remarked to a disappointed Mario, “Thank you, but our princess is another castle.”

Rabbit vs. 9/11 Truthers

I did an interview with Aryan Skynet, a cool site run by cool dudes. It was a good interview, but they were majorly bummed to discover I don’t embrace 9/11 trutherism. I’ve known that they were into this stuff for a while since I’m a big fan of Hipster Racist‘s blog and this appears to be his favorite topic. He’s an interesting and witty writer, so if you want to read about 9/11 conspiracies by someone entertaining who is on our side and not some rastafarian, Mumia Abu Jamal lookalike, that’s the place to go(yeah I know I’m on the same side as Chomsky on this, but check out the guy asking the question in the video, that genius is on your team.) Speaking as a hipster racist(non-truther version) with a shit ton of indie cred, I tend to prefer HR’s blog when he’s on his other topics(especially when he talks about women.) As I stated honestly in the interview, I’m not a 9/11 truther. My thoughts align pretty much with those here, here and here. So there you have it, but we can still be BFF’s since even though I don’t believe 9/11 was a Mossad false flag operation(or whatever,) I still have no interest in being dragged into Israel’s wars, and in fact I would very much like us not to be involved in any irrelevant third world military adventures, even from an accelerationist vantage point. I’m not willing to sacrifice patriotic kids from Utah and Kentucky in pointless wars just to see the US collapse sooner, even on the chance that it might leave a power vacuum for a space monarchy or the new fuhrer.

I sometimes wonder if the ideological differences among different schools of thought are too irreconcilable, and whether it might just be easier to convince authoritarian leftists to be more racist.

Reactionary Pinball

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.
