Don't call it a spade

The Inquisition

People, get out of Twitter. You can’t win.

If Twitter weren’t full of racists and sexists claiming to be Moldbug’s followers, he wouldn’t have been banned from speaking.

By forming a community and going public, all you are doing is make it easier for the Inquisition to go against you, and to apply collective responsibility to anyone you claim association with, whether it’s true or not.

This is not always one’s fault; a retard like Mike Anissimov can always come out, steal your name, and say he’s your lord and savior.

The only way out is to refuse to identify with a group, get out of social media and do not, ever, address the mainstream. Your Tweets to Corporate twitter accounts trying to shame sponsors for banning Moldbug are not helping. The kids at GamerGate did that, and all they got was Intel coming out with 300 fucking million dollars to shower on every SJW out there.

Your community isn’t growing; it’s attracting retards. Your activism isn’t helping, it’s making things worse. If you think you’re cool because you claim to be a fan of Moldbug, go back and read his blog again. He explicitly called for passivism. Do not engage in politics, become worthy, and assume power when the time comes.

Well the time has not come. It most likely will never come. Let’s face it, Molbug was full of it. I understand the impulse to form a community. I really do. The world has gone mad, we feel vulnerable and lonely, we want people who we can relate for, who can confirm we are not insane. We want to speak our minds over beer without fear of being flagged for crimethink and made miserable.

Well then go to a bar and stay there. On Twitter you are but SJW fodder.

    As things are going we might need a community before our children grow up, for defensive purposes. Even Moldbug said that passivism must yield to self-defense in critical situations. Nothing bad in community as such, as long as (a) it follows the passivism rules and (b) avoids being a target of political action. Amish are one example, nobody bothers about them much because they are seen as quaint and weird and non-threatening.

    Nick Szabo can’t win?

    • spandrell June 8, 2015 at 14:47

      Nick Szabo has fuck-you-bitcoins. You don’t.
      Noah Smith doesn’t matter, he’s just some apparatchick, if a famous one. There are others and they’re all looking at you, trying to get you fired and your public events canceled.

  4. nickbsteves June 8, 2015 at 14:28

    I thought you’d be telling Noah Smith he “can’t win”? Why’s an econ teacher from Paluka Community College biting Szabo’s ankles anyway?

    Can’t find much to argue with, especially addressing the mainstream. This shit show is too far gone, and probably always was too far gone. The whole damn point of MM was that systemic issues steamroller any activism you can come up with, and that until you can address the system in which people operate, the direction is one way – leftism.

    Agreed. It’s like trying to have a conversation in the middle of a rioting mob.

    I would agree activism as such is ineffective. However provoking these people does weaken them. GamerGate showed they can’t automatically intimidate everyone. Intel is paying them off, but they would have done that anyway. A long time ago they had serious intellectual credibility- the idea of equality wasn’t patently ridiculous, at least. And then it was at least sort of plausible, maybe. Now that we can see it’s ridiculous all they can say is “SHUT UP!” over and over again.

    Yes! Twitter is a medium of, by, and for the demotic community. Plus, it’s bad because it encourages instant communication of unwise thoughts. Get out.

    • Asher June 15, 2015 at 06:40

      If you actively entertain unwise thoughts spreading them on Twitter is the least of your problems.

    C’mon man, they even managed to get SJW’s fired. Corporations spending money on SJW’ism is nothing new, the best they can manage with this is to bankrupt themselves.

    Total agreement. Don’t pick a fight you are inevitably going to lose, concentrate on the heavy-lifting of political analysis and political engineering in the shadows. Neoreaction grew / devolved too quickly, seeking the easy (but impossible) path of ‘activism’ and community building, when it should have emerged more fully formed as an ideology.

    • Asher June 15, 2015 at 06:38

      No, NRx loses if it becomes an ideology. Ideologies begin with “this is how the world should work” and why I prefer the term Dark Enlightenment, which seems much less susceptible to becoming an ideology.

      • Rasputin June 15, 2015 at 19:44

        My understanding is that Neoreaction and the Dark Enlightnment are two different things. Neoreaction stems directly from Moldbug, who’s first post begins “The other day I was tinkering around in my garage and I decided to build a new ideology…”. Even if he’s being felicitous, Moldbug is a systems builder, and in my view Neoreactionary thinkers would have been better served to keep building their ideology away from the glare / attacks of the mainstream. Moldbug also talks about building an ejector button / alternative and superior system, for when the time comes that Progressivism is exhausted as a system and ready to collapse. To be an effective alternative, Neoreactionary thought needs to provide more than just questions / critique, it needs to provide a concrete plan of action, which is exactly what Moldbug has done. This needs to be extended.

        The Dark Enlightnment, on the other hand, is much more broad / amorphous. It is a series of questions, observations, crime think, etc, which undermines the orthodoxy of the current system. But it is not a plan of action, or, as you say an ideology. I think this distinction is useful, although I remain open to someone persuading me out of it.

    Most of the excellent activity is in various private groups. Some of them are up to interesting things.

  16. cyder534 June 14, 2015 at 15:47

    Agreed. Twitter is a wasteland. Even ‘NRX’ is amenable to xhardcorex trendy kids. You Neo-Reactionaries should have kept it all on the down low. Goulding got it. All publicity has been armaments and draw bridges for The Cathedral. The ubiquity of competitive moralism makes sure you pay for mainstream exposure.

  17. Asher June 15, 2015 at 06:34

    ” He explicitly called for passivism. Do not engage in politics,”

    Simply by writing what he wrote Moldbug entered politics, and, for all his insight, Yarvin missed that the personal/political distinction is dead.

    However, the point of online engagement isn’t to win a debate but to hone one’s arguments – consider it target practice. Consider the following assertion: the term racism is meaningless. I have personally used online debate to the point that I can offer this to a room-full of Seattle liberals and dominate the entire room. Yes, most of them hate me by the end of the discussion but I have undermined their identity.

    Also, remember that Cathedral uses foot soldiers who are often quite hostile to it. That is the trump card.

    • spandrell June 15, 2015 at 20:09

      They wake up the next day feeling as awesomely progressive as always. And one annoying fuck among them decides to dedicate the rest of his life to doxx and fuck with people like you.

      Have you actually achieved anything with your discussions? Something besides “dominating a room”, which is hardly evidence of anything besides you feeling good about yourself.

    Asher,

    Your final line is very important, and one neglected by NRx types because their personal experiences and social milieus tend to be pretty far from law-enforcement/military circles.

    There is a reason establishment-types get so shaken up by the Oathkeepers movement and the Cliven Bundy phenomenon.
