Provisional Post II

Mistakes were made … by me:

  • I was probably too hard on low-church protestants in this article from a long time ago.
  • I should have made it clear that I did not want to demonize the third estate, but rather place limits on its power, in this article. I also should not have demonized North Sea civilization in the said article but focused on how its separation from aristocracy allowed for its creation of the atomized mentality of modern Anglosphere cultures.
  • I should have mentioned in this article on Japan that shame cultures *can* be bad and dysfunctional, and that the shame cultures which exist both in some parts of the Alt-Right and in leftist culture (edit: which itself is driven by guilt culture) are dysfunctional, immature, and often plainly stupid. However, as inane as the shame culture in *certain parts of* the Alt-Right may be, one must recognize that it is a necessary evil in order to cancel out an equally inane shame culture coming from the left.
  • Some individuals still want to debate if r/K selection theory was merely misused by Ruston or whether it is garbage altogether. I previously trashed the theory on the grounds that it is an unempirical oversimplification, and even if this was not correct it is still not important to this blog at the moment.
  • To correct my assertions in my previous article, the Imperial Roman conflation of religion and law did not occur mostly through the office of Pontifex Maximus being held by an Imperator, but more through the deification of a living Imperator to effectively create a theocracy (this arguably began earlier with Alexander the Great whose rule was influenced by the theocratic customs of the Levant and Egypt, perhaps in revision, the proto-globalist theocrat Alexander was the Isildur, not Julius Caesar). The Augustan Principate prior to the imperial cult was (arguably) an example of a type of non-theocratic sacral kingship, where the roles of religious and political leadership were separated from one another; this was also characteristic of Germanic kingship, where the king was politically treated as a fallible human, but also could carry out religious rites (based on Tacitus and Old Norse literature). This is in contrast to the theocratic sacral kingship of Sumerian city states where religious and political authority were conflated into the same concept.
  • I criticized the papacy in my previous article as an operational priest-kingship. I did not intend to single out Catholics in particular in doing this. It was probably taken that way by some but it should not be taken as a personal insult.
  • As per the gentle reprimand of Curt Doolittle, in my previous article and many others, I also should have not argued for an ideal government (which I considered to be aristocracy), but only for the ideal rule of natural law. Dictatorship/generalship is necessary during wartime, as understood by the Romans, but only under the rule of natural law. The problem with the Alt-Right (with the exception of MurdochMurdoch with “Nice Guy National Socialism”) is that large sections want dictatorship all the time, and unfortunately, there is little assurance from past events in their movement that a wise and strategic dictator/general would be chosen when necessary.

Now, I have seen some articles, written on the Social Matter website, which appear to be directed at me in an aggressive manner without mentioning my screen name. I will not name these articles because doing so would cause more commotion than I am able to handle presently. Social Matter appears presently committed to creating an empire and using a supernaturalist institution, the Catholic Church, to inform it of what is considered good. Because of the possible attacks already received from Social Matter writers, my disagreement with their proposed use of supernaturalism, and my skepticism of empire, I will no longer be writing with the purpose of associating with the Social Matter community. Social Matter may post links to my posts which are found agreeable, but I will be writing some things which Social Matter will not want to link to out of disagreement.

… and I still will not be writing much in the next four months, and I do not have time for long, drawn out arguments in the comments section.

A Contemporary Allegory of the Three Estates of the Realm

 

In this post I will present an allegory of the three estates of the realm, using material which is totally unrelated to NRx. Out of respect for my more socially conservative readers, I warn you that I will be referring to some things that may be a bit uncomfortable for you to think about; so you may want to skip reading this post if you are not feeling particularly adventuresome.

I will follow the model of the three estates of the realm as it is presented on the blog Poseidon Awoke: Realist. The first estate, the religious priesthood, is considered to have the qualities of femininity, short-term outlook, and coercion with speech. The second estate, the warrior-aristocrats, is considered to have the qualities of masculinity, a long-term outlook, and coercion with force. The third estate, the free commoners, is considered to have the qualities of being evolutionary, having a mid-term outlook, and coercion using remuneration. These three estates are easily traceable back to the three functions of Indo-European society: 1. Sovereignty, 2. Military, and 3. Productivity identified by Georges Dumézil.

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).

Mitra-Varuna

65808-lordsun

The ethnocentric portion of the neoreaction seems to have taken two different strategies comparable to the means of warfare represented by the two Indo-European sovereignty deities, known from the Vedas as Mitra and Varuna, Germanic myth as Tiwaz and Wodanaz, and Roman religion as Dius Fidius and Iuppiter (Jupiter). Whereas Mitra represents the priest, jurist, and lawyer, Varuna represents a vengeful magician king, as do his counterparts Woden, and Jupiter. This distinction is explained fully in Georges Dumezil’s work Mitra-Varuna, but it can also be observed by the casual scholar of the Indic Vedas, Norse Eddas, and the ancient Roman religion. If you are unfamiliar with this theory, you can view Dumezil’s book here.

Woden/Odin, the Germanic Varuna

The nature of the Alt-Right is, and has been, a fundamentally Wodenic, or Varunian one. It is often focused on a sort of racial mysticism, combined often with an independent, Nietzschean type of irreligion and an ecstatic frenzy for warfare. It has also attracted outcasts from every corner of society under the hegemony of political correctness, which reminds one of Odin’s role as a patron of outcasts (you can read about his various attributes here). On the other hand, Propertarians represent a type of neoreaction more akin to the characters of Mitra, Dius Fidius or Tiwaz. Unlike the Varunian Alt-Right, Propertarians seek to take advantage of the concept of justice, contracts, courts, and the law to get their way, only using violence when these methods fail to produce desired outcomes. Ultimately, each approach applies itself to different circumstances, and both will likely be necessary for the neoreaction to have its intended effects.

The following videos highlight some quotes of Nietzsche and Schopenhauer. I think there is a fundamentally Wodenic, or Varunian spirit in both of their philosophies, but particularly in the highly individualistic viewpoint Nietzsche.

-Update 1/3/2017-

The Mitra-Varuna dichotomy I describe above seems to mesh fairly well with the Nietzschean concepts of the Apollonian (corresponding to Mitra) and the Dionysian (corresponding to Varuna). Nietzsche, of course is very Dionysian; he is a reaction against the excessive Apollonianism which began with the Protestant Reformation and continued with Whig politics, and the Enlightenment values which still pervade to this day.
