    I'd take an average TERF over a 3rd waver any day. A friend of mine in SF is a lesbian TERF and I've had far more reasonable disagreements with her than the hundreds of SJWs I've known over the years.

    All he seems to be saying is that libertarian types tend to dance in the realm of ideals as opposed to putting the rubber to the road and actually understanding what it takes to rule. I've read almost every libertarian thinker of note and the perennial problem with almost all of them is this: they do not understand power, and even worse, they have no desire to and mistake their inability or unwillingness to understand it as some sort of virtue. Who needs to understand power when you can just "smash the state", right? Say what you want about Milton Friedman, but at least he was willing to create libertarian-friendly policies that would be somewhat more palatable to the masses. Bannon, like all Machiavellians before him, understands power, and the cyclical nature of history. This is (apparently) a guy who reads Strauss and Burnham and Moldbug, among others. He is far more intellectually curious than the vast, vast majority of people who have been in the White House at any point in history. His desire to unmake the federal agencies is well known, but he's smart enough to know that you can't do that by running around talking about gold and how private charity will take care of everyone. Political idealism is the folly of fools who either have no desire or capacity to run a civilization. Until libertarians study power the way they study economics, what economic theories they champion will be irrelevant. Until then, they'll never have the ability to set any economic policy, let alone an Austrian one.

    No way is that a real Walt Disney film. Disney had some dark stuff in his movies, but nothing like that and the animation just doesn't look right either.

    Being anti-monopoly as such is a leftist fetish that should be discarded. There's nothing wrong with them in themselves. When libertarians talk about how impossible it is for a free market to have monopolies, it is almost always a desire to either placate or refute leftists who know nothing abut history or economics. Peter Thiel was mentioned above and I think his conception of "creative monopolies" is quite interesting and something we should think more about as the multinational inevitably supersedes the nation-state.

    If the government pays people to drive their cars back and forth on the border it will "create" jobs & cause so much global warming at the border that people won't be able to cross the 200 degree line of demarcation. Problem solved; two with one stone.

    If she doesn't France is finished. The only hope they have of leaving the EU is a Front National victory. It'll be made demographically impossible if things don't change immediately.

    Isn't distributism more of a religious philosophy than a developed economic theory?

    Just took a quick look here: http://neorxn.com/introduction/ I'm intrigued to keep looking. I'm disappointed that he tries to tie theonomists in with kinists, a lot of theonomists view kinists as heretics (not that I expect you to care as a non-Christian, just sayin' )

    Ethno-nationalists are one of the biggest problems in the theonomy movement, BTW. Most non-kinist theonomists tend to ban kinists (ethnonationalists) from the theonomy movement. I'm told they're more dangerous than they're willing to admit to in public.

    Good stuff, BTW. I'll take a look.
  3. As for which blogs, Mencius Moldbug's Unqualified Reservations is probably the best place to start, if you can handle his seemingly endless verbosity. He' the Neoreactionary Marx (in terms of scope and influence), so it's best to start at the beginning. I'd also recommend Nick Land, Michael Anissimov and Vox Day. The Right Stuff has some good writers, but they dip into antisemitism far too frequently for my liking; I am pro-Christian and pro-Jew (t least in some cases).
  4. The other two wings are techno-futurism and ethno-nationalism. Admittedly, this is something of a simplification. You could break them down into different groups, and debate where one group ends and another begins, and who belongs in which camp. It is a pretty decent description of the biggest trends in NRx though. I'm of the techno-futurist persuasion, with some flavor from the other camps thrown in for good measure. Here's a more complex breakdown of the major Dark Enlightenment players:

    And yes, I hate modernity as well

    Do you have any particular blog you'd recommend?

    What are the other two wings, just out of curiosity?

    1. Yes, you could leave for any reason.

    2. I would. I can't speak for anyone else. THough admittedly there is the question of how big it would have to be exactly. If you had one random household say they "secede" but they're engaging in homosexuality I would think they could be punished. If they want to start their own society the next county over, be my guest. Most recons are decentralizationists and I am too.

    3. Unfortunately if enough people conspire its hard to do anything, but there is a law allowing you to challenge a witness and if the witness is actually a liar they receive whatever penalty they wanted for you. But its true that if both witnesses and court are corrupt I don't know what could be done. I want to learn more about this.

    Honestly, from what I remember from your posts you're probably closer to what I believe than most other people here. You'd probably want to run a different type of society in part of what we now know as "The United States" which I'm fine with. I've only briefly read on Neoreactionary but from what I've read I'm pretty much in line with the general idea. And a lot of people at the supposed ultra-conservative Patrick Henry College DO NOT like my positions... oddly both for being too authoritarian and too libertarian at the same time.

    OK, so if you can actually find a quote (not a wikipedia article that doesn't actually quote him) saying that Gary North wants to stone people just for being unbelievers or that he wants to impose a global theocracy by force (key distinction, believing a global theocracy will eventually come about BY EVANGELISM is obviously very different) let me see the quote so I can denounce him. I definitely don't support that, and I don't know of any other theonomist that does either.
