The Red-Pill Mindset and Nietzsche

“The cowardly, the timid, the insignificant, and those thinking merely of narrow utility are despised; moreover, also, the distrustful, with their constrained glances, the self- abasing, the dog-like kind of men who let themselves be abused, the mendicant flatterers, and above all the liars:–it is a fundamental belief of all aristocrats that the common people are untruthful. “We truthful ones”–the nobility in ancient Greece called themselves” – Friedrich Nietzsche Beyond Good and Evil, Chapter IX, paragraph 260 (emphasis mine)

Following the reasoning of Nietzsche, it seems clear from the quote above that the red-pill mentality, the acceptance of the deep and unsettling truths which most of society likes to avoid, is clearly a viewpoint of aristocratic origin. We should therefore not be ashamed of our peculiar viewpoints such as race realism, and others which are inegalitarian, but empirically verifiable, as they are what set us apart, and above the ordinary man, the “normie”, who are usually little more than “the self- abasing, the dog-like kind of men who let themselves be abused, the mendicant flatterers, and above all the liars”. Considering these qualities which Nietzsche assigns to common people, the fact that the average well-educated white “normie” lets himself be abused by leftist immigration policy and lies about race, claiming it does not exist, should, therefore, be no surprise. We, then, as members of the broader neoreactionary movement already make up a natural aristocracy. Whereas the “normie” who wants nothing to do with red pills is merely mediocre.

We should consider the idea that this natural aristocracy, due to genetic reasons, may always be a minority and that we must, as Nietzsche says a little later in this paragraph, become creators of values. It is slightly depressing to think that not everyone is red-pillable, but it may just be the reality of the situation.

-Update 12/9/16-

It is also important to pay attention to the fact that Nietzsche attributes the quality of “thinking merely of narrow utility” to the common people. This coincides with the behavior we observe from blue-pill types who think that immigration from the third world  into Europe and North America is necessary to compensate for labor shortages etc. It is the globalist, neoliberal mentality which thinks of people as mere resource units to be utilized for profit in the marketplace, instead of as living, breathing organisms with a family, ethnicity, and culture. We “red-pilled” ones, however, know what chaos and destruction this mass immigration brings. Mammon is not our god, and we certainly aren’t willing to put the future existence of our people in jeopardy just for cold, dry, inhuman economic reasons. Thus it can be said that both the lefties and the globalist neoliberals (I’m kicking against Ayn Rand here) are both commoners alike, neither are true aristocrats. If they were true aristocrats they would cast off the ring of “narrow utility”, or “profit” in favor of their own people (as Frodo did in Mount Doom, and as Galadriel did when she passed “the test”, being offered the One Ring).

  1. Interesting blog, found you at propertarianism.com (you liked a post or something). I want to learn more about Nietzsche, but I have no idea where to begin, I tried to start with TSZ, but soon everyone was telling me it was the wrong place to start. Any recommendations?

    1. Hi there. I find that Chapter IX of Beyond Good and Evil to be very good, and concise in laying out Nietzschean ethics and views regarding civilization. This might make it a good place to start. Nietzsche further elaborates on his ideas contained in that chapter when he writes his book The Genealogy of Morality, which I have not had time do much more than skim. I did start reading Twilight of the Idols, another very good book. The reason I probably wouldn’t start off with TSZ is because the language is very artistic, and can be a bit confusing if you are not already familiar Nietzsche’s worldview. So I recommend maybe starting with Beyond Good and Evil where Nietzsche is very clear and blunt, or at least reading some of it, before trying to digest TSZ. You may also want to visit the WordPress blog of Dr. Joseph Suglia, one of my followers, who probably knows a lot more than I do on this subject.
