    Gun ownership in the US runs at a Pareto distribution, and that's not surprising. It would be surprising if it didn't.

    Elizabeth Warren: 1. Checked the Native box when at Harvard 2. Was referred to as the "first woman of color" in her department while at Harvard 3. Contributed to an Amerindian cookbook called -- I shit you not -- Pow Wow Chow where she referred to herself as Cherokee 4. Claimed her parents had to elope because her father's family didn't want him to marry Cherokee/Delaware woman This spin is a bullshit narrative attempting to retcon what is clearly decades of a woman masquerading as something she was not. I don't doubt she would call herself white when it benefitted her, then flit back to being Cherokee or Delaware or whatever.

    Here's a more robust analysis of the same data: https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2012/12/listening_to_the_latest_media.html There's more at work than just gun control, such as the cultural shifts that started in the mid-late 1960s and the psychological effects of returning World War I vets.. The lower homicide rate in the 1950s is significant because: 1. We have better medical technology today, thereby turning incidents that would have been homicides in the past into assaults today. 2. We have far more people in prison now than in the 1950s as a percentage of the population. 3: We have a far bigger federal police force than in the 1950s as well as many, many more laws. 4. Urbanization has increased since the 50s, which is a good predictor of crime.

    This is why the GOP is better than the Democrats. If they are allowed to stack the court, the second amendment goes bye-bye, followed by the first. Get ready for a SCOTUS decision that separates hate speech from free speech in the next few decades, unless the court is heavily conservative.

    Forget Lewinsky, let's talk about Juanita. But funnily enough, I do actually agree with her; the idea that there can be no consensual sexual relationship between a head of state and an intern is silly. It may very well be sleazy and it certainly is inappropriate, but consent is certainly not impossible under such circumstances.

    I did not write that. That was r3v. You either confused us or believe I'm his alt, which is not true. We know this because we can look at history. Which, again, is replete with mobs committing acts of violence against groups of people they consider to have done some sort of wrong. This mob inclination is eternal within humanity and institutions do not change human nature. It is reasonable to infer from what you have written thus far that you are a pragmatist, willing to turn his back on valid base principles for the sake of what you feel is the "greater good". Pragmatism is the wrong word. I just realize that when it comes to statecraft that all you have are tradeoffs. Perfection is not for this world.

    No, I said that you need to have a society that cares about innocence in order to properly police and punish the guilty This is exceptionally short-sighted. Of course, individuals and communities should be allowed to deal with criminals when they so choose, but that can't be the totality of the criminal justice system. History is replete with riots, pogroms, lynchings, and other mob violence when the masses decide to right some perceived wrong. You can't put the task of punishing the guilty in the hands of random people who can be whipped into a frenzy. We've seen where that leads. Giving the ability to punish crime to a mob wouldn't keep people from being falsely punished. On the contrary, a mob has no standard of evidence, asks for no warrants and usually has little to no concern for guilt. Your "cure" worsens the disease. You seem to have a Rousseauian conception of freedom, where man is born free, but has it stripped from him by society everywhere he goes. I have the opposite conception. Liberty is a concept that evolved slowly in a specific context over millennia. It needs to be engineered and applied carefully. It has many prerequisites. One of those prerequisites is stability. A free society needs to pass the Civilization test, name, if you can walk around without being accosted by violent thugs. Order and liberty -- properly understood -- are sister virtues, not enemies.

    NPCs are very real, or at least the meme gets at a very important truth. There are millions of people who have no real, rich, internal monologue. Whose taste in music is decided by the top 40, who see every Marvel film on opening weekend, who believe all the safe political opinions pre-packaged by Hollywood and the MSM and who take copious amounts of selfies. "NPC" is pretty nice compared to what they really are.

    Singapore does a great many things I, personally, would disagree with. But they also went from 3rd to 1st world within two generations and have the second freest market on Earth. Lee Kuan Yew was the greatest statesman of the latter 20th Century, and it isn't close. Also despite being pretty much entirely urbanized, it almost totally lacks the kind of problems that are endemic in big cities in the US. I'm not saying we should adopt Singaporean drug policies, I'm saying that cities can be built better.

    The main culprit is modern American urbanization. Urban areas digest most communities, set people against each other and create all sorts of pathologies. Then, increasing police presence is demanded by the law-abiding members of the public to fight the horrible behavior engineered by the cities. We need to rethink just what it is a modern city can look like in the West. Singapore would be a good place to look to for inspiration.

    These are not in conflict, but necessary for one another to really exist. If you have a society that cares nothing for the innocence of the accused, you're going to have a lot of guilty people going free while the wrong people rot in prison. You need to protect the innocent to go after the guilty. You also need to go after the guilty to protect the innocent. Allowing criminal degenerates roam free is hardly going to help the people whose communities they defile.

    In a sane society, there would be very few people in prisons. People on drugs or addicted to prostitutes or gambling would be helped by churches and other institutions. Murderers, rapists and pedophiles would be executed in a timely fashion instead of twenty years after being convicted.

    As far as I understand it, all he really said was that police should be authorized to fire when being attacked. "killing criminals" was an extrapolation. From who? And compared to what? Brazil is an overregulated mess whose socialist chickens have come home to roost. I have no doubt that you could find examples of Bolsonaro supporting unlibertarian policies, but he's relatively very capitalist. This guy has a Brazilian Pinochet written all over him and I mean that in the best possible way.

    Make no mistake, the Kavanaugh situation has not ended; it has only just begun. The last couple of years have shown us that when the left loses they double down, get angry and start trying to rally the mob. Kavanaugh and/or Senators who voted for his confirmation are going to be accosted in public. The idea that there's a rapist in the Supreme Court is going to be used as a propaganda tool against Republicans. Michael Avenatti probably isn't done trotting out the obvious liar Sweatneck, either. This show is still in early act three.

    It’s appears the senate will vote tomorrow on the possible confirmation of Kavanaugh. For all the prognosticators out there, what will be the outcome of Saturday’s vote? The second question offers limited choices, though I know many of you would like to find a different result. Please limit your answer to the options below as it relates to your desired outcome this weekend. 1. Kavanaugh is confirmed 2. Kavanaugh is not confirmed and the midterms dictate control of the senate which will dictate the type of person Trump nominates next

    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

    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.
