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.
