Reaction, Pacifism, and Realism

On this blog there are posts about economics and finance, which falls under ‘lifestyle and investing’ but from a reactionary-realist perspective. The idea of reactionary realism is to be cognizant of reality without engaging in too much, yet participating at the same time, but still…

The Left’s Favorite Books, Debunked

At the end of the post Understanding the far-left, I dismissed much of the left’s work on social science as ‘flimsy science’. The far-left tends to blame environment for inequality, because biological differences, such as IQ, that may engender inequality less tractable to state intervention….

Small-Government Ethno-States

Andrew Anglin of Daily Stormer interviews Alex Linder: Daily Stormer Interview with Alex Linder Trigger warning: Mr. Linder is pretty extreme…more so than probably the vast majority of the alt-right…He makes Richard Spencer seem like Obama by comparison. This passage stood out: I think I’ve…

New ‘Alts’

In addition to the alt-right, which everyone is familiar with, new ones are constantly being invented: alt-left, alt-lite, alt-White, alt-West, and even ‘alt-rino’. So here are some more that I made up: Alt-rat (rational): this blog. Combines rationalism with elements of Dark Enlightenment; agnostic/atheist; HBD;…

Wealth Creation as the New American Religion

On sites such as Hacker News, Quora, Medium, and Reddit, posts, threads, and discussions about wealth creation always go viral. Everyone is obsessed with wealth, economics, finance, and money, but why, and what does this say about society? My own take is, in the past,…

The Value of Republican Moderates

I defended Richard Spencer a few days ago and now I will defend, gasp, Ben Shapiro and Erick Erickson, who are often targets. Ben and Erik agree with the alt-right on about 80-90% of issues (SJWs, BLM, political correctness, second amendment, feminism, etc.), with the…

Trump Presidency Analysis

A Rising Stock Market Does Not Signal Economic Health Are we in a stock market bubble? No. Will there be a crash anytime soon? No. Those are just opinions, not facts, but they are no worse than 1000+ word analysis by ‘experts’ who are often…

Understanding the far-left

An imgur gallery of statistics that show how society is improving went viral. Far-left liberalism, in a nutshell, is the belief that man – particularly white, heterosexual men – are intrinsically corrupt [1] (similar to the concept of original sin) and that it’s the job…

Nassim Tooleb Loses His Temper Again

Nassim Tooleb lost his temper again. He began by asking the difference between democracy and populism, but only asking for ‘rigorous’ explanations, which is kinda difficult given the 140-character restriction of Twitter. But people tried anyway. I am still looking for someone to give a…

HBD-Nationalism Conundrum

Let’s assume you hold a ‘populist’ view on immigration and nationalism (border control, ethno-states, etc.) but an ‘elite’ view on IQ and HBD (IQ is important, a measure of individual ‘worth’, is reliably testable, and varies between races/groups/nations, etc.). Although both of these individually may…
