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.

Reflections of an “Anonymous Coward”

golgo-13-top-secret-episode

If an HR department at any publicly traded corporation discovered that, under your real name, you had written(or merely even faved) tweets critical of Jews, blacks, immigrants, women, gays, trans etc. you’d be fired in two seconds. One of the problems with unchecked, transnational capitalism is that desire for money literally trumps everything. Big companies will sell out their own local communities, their people’s culture and even the security of the nation for a few bucks. Corporations care more about dollars than anything. Even when companies engage in diversity initiatives and philanthropic endeavors, these too are ultimately driven by profits. Though some people in the company may genuinely care about said causes on some level, the gestures themselves are still essentially just shrewd public relations stunts, designed to give the company a positive image and act as a force field to deflect any SJW criticism. A company will not knowingly associate their brand with anything or anyone that could even potentially be controversial. I myself was once denied a job at a solid ad agency on the basis of a few mild tweets(on my real account) that were uncovered in the final stages of the hiring/interview process. Lately I’ve been inclined to stick with more entry level positions where my visibility would not be high enough in a company to draw attention to any of my political activism. The current company I work for enforces a policy that “an employee should not take public political stands.” Note: they’re talking about any public political stands(ie “Obamacare sucks!”) to say nothing of the the controversial HBD and anti-democracy stuff we advocate for.

Anissimov argues that the problem the Right faces right now is anonymity:

The main problem that the neoreactionary Right faces right now is anonymity. Three years ago it was not enough people. Now, many, many new people are joining, but the vast majority are doing so under the cover of anonymity.

It is somewhat strange that he would be advocating these 1000s of people should boldly shed their anonymity, given that just recently he declared NRx to only be about 8 people, with the rest being merely fans. Why would anyone risk their job, just to publicly be part of a “fan club” or something which has declared itself not even seeking to be a popular movement. If it’s just a secret, small group of intellectuals engaged in a school of thought…why not just keep it a secret, who cares? What’s in it for the rest of us, “the fans?”

In my view, the problem with the new right isn’t that too many of us are anonymous. If 5000 reactionaries went public with their real names, then those people would be fired from their jobs the moment any one of their employers made the connection. All it takes is one SJW to locate your Linkedin account and fire off an email to your employer, and bam! you’re toast. No corporation will stick their neck out for a racialist. Let us not forget people like John Derbyshire were even fired from “conservative” publications, because they felt his(mild by comparison to some of ours) opinions were damaging to National Review’s image. We’ve even seen the likes of Roosh V get in on the PC thought policing act when it comes to protecting his profitable e-book brand.

Rather, the real issue is that we lack our own institutions.

This is where my friends and I work now. Be sure and let our bosses know how offended you are by our politically incorrect opinions.

This is where my friends and I work now. Be sure and let our bosses know how offended you are by our politically incorrect opinions.

Imagine if the entire company you worked for was run by and staffed throughout with “neo-nazis”, secessionists, monarchists, daughters of the confederacy, ethnonationalists or whomever. In such a scenario, if the SJW mob came after you, your bosses ideally would laugh their asses off. Again though, this brings us back to the issue of capitalism and it’s associated PC pressures(just look at all the problems SeaWorld has had.) Would such an organization survive all the bad crimethink PR in the present US environment? Would they stand by you? Maybe, maybe not.

So when should one go public? Financial independence should be the condition for using your real name. If you need to work for a company to pay your rent or support your family, you probably have to stay anon. It should be the goal of every new rightist to be able to reach a state of financial security when he can say whatever we wants and remain largely unscathed by any attacks from the outrage brigade. Anonymity, like other covert operations can be incredibly effective. One of the things that so frustrates SJWs is that they can’t stop anonymous people from commenting on current events, which is why they’re trying to force companies like Google, Yahoo etc to make people use their real name in comment sections.

Would the Vietcong have been successful had they come out and told everyone who they were before the Tet Offensive? And don’t say “but The Tet Offensive was actually a military failure.” Yes, I’m aware of that. From a propaganda standpoint it was an important psychological victory, though. I like the concept of our own metaphorical “Tet offensive” where we pick a date two or three years from now, a day of the rabbit so to speak, when out of nowhere thousands upon thousands of us come out using our real names, sending shock waves throughout the media. In the meantime we would slowly prepare and work toward being financially independent by that date.

Most of us would like to use our real names. It would be beneficial to me for sure. We just need to buy a little time. If for some reason we get doxxed and outed before we’re ready, the only thing to do at that point is just to “rock it” and charge full speed ahead.

How Radical Feminists Affect Race Relations Among Cisgendered Males

InLikeFlint-dryers

“The love of a man for a woman waxes and wanes like the moon, but the love of brother for brother is steadfast as the stars and endures like the word of the prophet.” Arabian proverb (from Beau Geste, 1939)

Say what we will about tribalism and the natural tendency among people to gravitate toward interacting with members of their own race. Indeed, we all know that ethnic groups self-segregate, contrasting themselves into monochromatic bands. This phenomenon is observable almost everywhere we look, from neighborhood communities and high school cafeterias to maximum security prison yards and grocery store checkout lanes. Having stated all that, I still maintain that there’s nothing to bond two people like a good shit talking session. If there’s one development that allows people to set aside their differences and get along, (at least temporarily) it’s the development of a perceived threat from a common enemy.

In a famous 1987 speech to the U.N. (which was later seized on by Ufologists as “proof” we had been visited) President Ronald Reagan made the following remarks:

In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask you, is not an alien force already among us?

Given that Reagan had signed the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 which granted amnesty to 12 million illegal aliens the year before giving this speech, the answer would have to be “Yes!” Seriously though, the extraterrestrial lizard alien invasion as depicted in V: The Original Miniseries never quite materialized (at least not literally.) Metaphorically, the social setting of the film, Alien Nation more accurately prophesied our unfolding reality.

But we can forget about all of that for a moment. When Reagan spoke of the threat posed by an “alien among us” in 1987, one which could rally men of all colors and creeds to unite in spirited defense, he was not talking about radical feminists and their SJW reptilian allies….but in 2015, they are surely here.

A while back, I had posted some MGTOW (I was only ever a level 2) related memes on Instagram or some such social media site, and not long after that, I suddenly had all these random black dudes “liking” the photos and a couple of them even started following my feed. That’s right, ME, a nationalist who advocates transforming Antarctica into a futuristic colony exclusively for ethnic Europeans with blue or green eyes (white people with brown eyes can be allowed too if their skin is sufficiently pale, I suppose.) Anyhow, I clicked through to some of their profiles and was surprised to see them spouting libertarianish, anti-feminist rhetoric at belligerent female commenters and proudly posting pics of their just-arrived copies of popular manosphere books, such as Aaron Clarey’s “Enjoy The Decline.” Indeed, PUA and manosphere circles are inundated with blacks, who remain staunch allies in their war on Western women and unrestrained urges to bang as many chicks as possible.

It’s not surprising. With a disproportionate number of “low impulse control” black men ending up as single fathers, they are among the most likely to find themselves embroiled in bitter child support and spousal disputes, where they are almost certain to be dealt a losing hand from the red queen’s stacked deck passes for our legal system. Not that they haven’t learned to game that system a bit though. A (white) friend of mine is forced to give up nearly half of every paycheck to child support for a kid he’s not even allowed to see (the reason the female judge gave is that the child is “autistic” and he’s not properly trained to deal with autistic children…I shit you not.) He works at the airport though with a bunch of black guys who’ve apparently been there done that, and they advised him his best course of action would be to try to have another kid with a different girl, as that will result in a reduction in the amount he’s required to pay for the first child. So they’ve got it all worked out it seems.

As much as I long for racial separation and a restoration of 1950’s (at the very minimum) demographics to some small caucasian region of the solar system, I can’t help but feel a bit of comradery on that rare occasion when I find myself exchanging “crazy bitch” tales with some random black dude, whether I’ve gone down some Youtube rabbit hole comment thread or I’m just chatting up the token black in a crowded, hipster dive bar. Sometimes, these conversations subsequently branch off into other subjects, revealing mutual interests in sports topics, old school video games, forgotten Saturday morning cartoons etc. to the point where I start to question whether my staunch racialism is fully justified. I almost fall back into 1970’s-80’s multicultural window mode, envisioning that color blind, “humanracism,” future we were promised in optimistic shows like Battlestar Galactica (1978 version, not the Lost In Castration version). For me though, those reflective thoughts where I briefly entertain idealistic retro-futuristic fantasies of diversitopia… are pretty much where the fun ends.  Or at least, that’s where it almost ends.

Starbuck and Apollo, enjoying their moment in the late 1970's-80's

Starbuck and Apollo, enjoying their moment in the late 1970’s-80’s “multicultural window”

Feminism has morphed so many Western white women into creatures unsuitable for long term relationships or traditional marriage and child rearing, that an increasing number of men (myself included) find themselves tempted to pursue Hispanic or Asian women. Sure one may have nothing to talk to them about and no mutual interests or shared history, but at least a Mexican or Latin American girl will be down to have kids before age 35. The baby may end up looking nothing like you, but at least you’ll have planted your seed. She won’t change career paths five times and constantly pressure you to move to whatever city she thinks is fashionable based on the latest hipster band or trashy tv show she likes. She may even be pleasant to be around…. Holy shit. Suck on that for a moment, radfems. It’s gotten to the point where there are a ton of guys who would rather pluck a girlfriend they have nothing in common with, from some third world shithole just for the chance to be with a a woman who’s not openly hostile toward them.

 Ecclesiastes 7:28:                                                                              while I was still searching but not finding– I found one upright man       among a thousand, but not one upright woman among them all. 

If as a Western male, you’ve grown weary of searching for needles in the haystacks of broken white women and made the mathematical calculation that your odds would be better with a darker shade (or even no shade,) I guess I understand.

But for a racially conscious person like me…it’s still not enough.

InLikeFlint-teamup

The thing is, I simply don’t hate feminists enough to embrace multiculturalism. While radfems like to talk tough, at the end of the day they are more of a nuisance than anything. As soon as we collectively decide we’ve had enough of their crap, we can put them in their place whenever we feel like it.  However, once you allow your cities to be flooded with third world immigrants and feral blacks, there’s no turning back. Your civilization is toast. At the end of the day, the black friend you’re joking around and playing Sega Genesis with, still identifies as black, first and foremost. When the next Trayvon Marton/OJ Simpson/Rodney King/Michael Brown incident comes along, the color blinds open up, and 9 times out of 10 he’ll side with the black victim narrative out of instinctive racial solidarity. As the saying goes… “when the shooting starts, you come home to your own.”

In spite of their tendency to be everything from mild pains in the asses, to full on movie ruiners, I feel a solidarity and connection with European American girls that I doubt I ever could with Hispanic or Asian girls (and yes I’ve given them a try.) Home cooked meals are great when you can get them, but I actually like some of the sass that an American girl can bring to the table. Constant bickering can wear a good man down, but make up sex and hatefucking the woman you love makes the world go round. One of the best romantic movies ever is Two For The Road, with Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney. It’s about a couple that grows to despise one another, yet can’t live without each other. Nothing can come between them. That’s how I feel about European American women. They’re licentious howlers, but they’re our licentious howlers. In another life, I’ve written some of the most misogynist diatribes known to man, but if the choice is between getting bitched at by the Shanley Kanes of the world vs. the Detroiting of Western civilization, I’ll side with the feminazis every time.

Shanley... at least she's white

Shanley… at least she’s white

Luckily that’s not even the choice you’re stuck with. Depending where you live, there are still plenty of nice American girls who want nothing to do with radical feminism. These girls want to get married and have families just like you do. Sure, odds are you’ll probably wind up getting raped in divorce court someday and losing it all, but the risk might be worth it. While they may not be as reliably submissive as their third world counterparts, American women at least speak the same language as you, grew up learning about the same heroes and possibly will have even watched the same cartoons as children (unless there’s a huge age difference and you’re robbing the cradle, in which case… good for you.) For low time preference individuals, the bond of shared history and common ancestry is too strong to be broken by the frivolity of modern feminist brainwashing and “interracial male bonding sessions.” At least, we hope it is, for the sake of our children and the world they will have to live in. Short of a massive alien invasion or diabolical female plot to take over the world, that’s unlikely to change. Perhaps radical feminism affects race relations by revealing the diversity of priorities among men.

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.

antartica-ufo

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.

elvisdarkfuture

Elvis, alive and well and working as a Sanctioned Op defending the Deep South in Jack Yeovil’s “Dark Future”

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.

1976-logans-run_2065408i

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.)

From Knockout Game Escape Sanctuary To World Domination Headquarters

Pulsarfiring

The gun on Ice Planet Zero, a sophisticated laser cannon which nearly destroyed the Galactica

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

 “There’s a letter. Shall we burn it?” – Magus

zeal

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.

Guardia_Castle

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.

No need for me to visit every detail of the plot of the game though. Much of it can be found here (warning: spoliers.)

Literally, a woman of the Cathedral revealing her plans for world domination to Crono (you can't make this shit up!)

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.
