Short textual interlude
Thank you to Bronze Age Pervert, the voice of sanity in the war against reality, whose recent piece, "America's Delusional Elite is Done," prompted me to complete and publish this, and sorry for making you scroll past this so you can get to the CRACKPOT PODCAST, yes, it's here, just keep scrolling.
BAP criticizes our egregious elite, yet elides the call to name or describe the best form of government. It isn't his responsibility to do so. A critique of the leviathan that owns virtually everyone on earth in no way implies the requirement to put forth an alternative, but I will humbly submit mine:
The best form of government is to be ruled by strong, wise and just men. Strong, yes, mentally of course, but physical strength is non-negotiable. Every leader has blood on his hands, through all of history and to the present day, every single one. I want a leader who can kill with his own hands. One of the most embarrassing moments of the Obama presidency was when a video of his workout was leaked. This man, who winces as he bounces on bird legs with ten pound dumbbells, this man is calling drone strikes? It's disgusting. I applaud BAP's call for beauty, physical culture and vitality and also wish to see young men training in the combat arts:
BAP tells us that the present American regime is tyrannical on par with the late Soviet Union. This is true, but it's also different. Orwell and Huxley have been reconciled in the corporatization and crowdsourcing of social control. I don't need to tell you how many rightish people have been unpersonned, lives ruined by so-called justice, while our attackers are unpunished and celebrated.
The law of declining virulence in epidemiology may or may not be true. It's the idea that a plague that kills too effectively quickly burns out, but a disease that leaves most infected vectors alive can continue in the host population forever, like the common cold rather than the Spanish flu. America doesn't need Gulags, it doesn't even need cops very much, though we have huge numbers of them. Americans are bound in slavery by all encompassing consumerism and the thought models supported by our decentralized politico-corporate elite, the materialist heirs of our founders.
I also want to take this opportunity, as a WOMAN, to express my visceral disgust with men who pretend to wield authority but are incapable of defending their own physical autonomy, never mind that of their close loved ones, and could never, ever, ever hope to command loyal warriors or conquer nations. These men who appeal to collective force, who place themselves above others on the basis of their intellect or some natural "aristocracy," or even simply their male sex, they are revolting. Aristocracy must be gained by the battle axe. A king must earn his crown with his sword. Do you hear me Moldbug????
