“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.
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).
A few days ago I published a blog post asserting that Haruka Nanase of the anime series Free! is a type of ubermensch who exhibits master morality. This indeed seems to be the case through most of the series. From his childhood, he insisted on swimming “free” and not being bound by the value judgment of society on his ability to swim. However, by episode 13 of the Eternal Summer season, he decides to take up swimming as a career and openly (to his friends) is willing to swim in keeping with the value judgment of his society on his swimming (times, competition, etc.). To me, this seemed like something of a tragedy. It is as though Haru loses who he is. The character that we have come to know seems to have changed unalterably at the last moment in the series. From a Nietzschean viewpoint, he loses his role as a master, a creator of values, and takes up the role of the slave, one who adheres to the values of the master.
This led me to think — are more of us Nietzschean “masters” in childhood, and we become slaves as we teach ourselves to adhere to, and to accept the value judgments our society places upon us as we grow into adulthood? This appears to be something which Haru does, and to me, it is reminiscent of a sort of “fall”, not the same as the Christian “fall”, but equally disastrous from a Nietzschean viewpoint. I encourage my readers to reflect on this and to consider how much of our behavior, and even inward thoughts is controlled(policed) as adults, and how difficult it is to openly express, or even form value judgments dissonant with what society deems acceptable.
If you wish to understand master and slave morality better, especially as it applies to this context, this video can help:
Well, it seems that my post on Nominalism and liberalism has not been of much interest to anyone yet, so I have decided to write about something some people might find less intellectually demanding: morality. I previously stated in my first post that what Nietzsche called slave morality needs to decline in order for the West to have any backbone (and to prevent the extinction of ethnic European peoples). I still hold to this idea. In this post I will give one example of how one might find good moral instruction in a source some might find unlikely: anime.
As I began to get deeper and deeper into the broader nonreactionary movement, I began to encounter a mild fanaticism related to anime, particularly in the alt-right. Of course there was one mainstream Republican news reporter who mocked the alt-right back in January of this year calling it a movement of “childless single men who masturbate to anime”(I don’t actually know if Rick Wilson’s claim is entirely false!).
