WEIRD SCIENCE

Bill Nye: the freaky-deaky sexual perversity propagandist guy?

Bill Nye became known to most American schoolchildren of the '90s as "The Science Guy," a lovable, bowtied eccentric who would entertainingly display various scientific principles, like, say, friction, or gravity, or electricity, or other generally unquestioned factual phenomena.

COLD, ICE COLD


Philosopher Nick Land talks about the transition that the West is currently experiencing as a shift from being nice to being more realistic. “Nice” is like bourgeois values: offend no one, befriend everyone, and always gesture vividly toward your acceptance of all people, behaviors and ideas.

Naturally, this niceness is fatal to any group because it opposes the idea of standards, as well as the basic notion of finding some things to be true and others not and therefore unacceptable as answers to certain questions. To be nice, one must believe that all people are basically the same and thus are “universal,” or uniformly good for the most part.

The problem with nice is that it is a form of competition. If your neighbors are nicer than you, you are seen as a less desirable business partner, mate, customer, friend, coworker, and seller. When one person on the block goes down the path of nice, the others must “keep up with the Joneses” and virtue signal their niceness as well.

WHY LEFTISTS SHOULDN'T HAVE FREE SPEECH


I enjoy watching the Youtuber Sargon of Akkad, and in truth prefer his content to most of the explicitly Alt-Right content on Youtube. This is because Sargon, while a far cry from the vibrant Middle-Easterner suggested by his name, does a job that most of us jaded Alt-Righters are unwilling (if not exactly unable) to do. He rakes through the arguments and actions of leftists, measures them against the abstract principles of democracy, non-racism and individual liberty, and explains over and over again just how far the Left is deviating from these principles.

HITLER AS AN EXPRESSION OF GERMAN "BAD FORM"


Today we enter “The Twelve Days of Hitler,” the period between the anniversary of the birth of the Adolf Hitler (20th April) and the anniversary of the announcement of his death (1st May). It’s a bit like Black History Month for 1488ers, but many other people also take an interest.

One problem with evaluating Hitler is that, for many people, he is all that they know about German history, so he exists in kind of de-contextualized, detached, and over-dramatized space that is more mythic than historical. This may be one reason he is viewed as either uniquely good or, more commonly, uniquely evil. To get beyond this, it is important to see him in the context of the wider flow of German history.

When considering him in this way, the thing that strikes me most about him is not how exceptional he was, but instead how consistent he was with the rest of German history.

BOWIE: THE CULTURIST REVIEW



To make a culturist critique is to tie an event or person to larger cultural trends. David Bowie (1947-2016) symbolizes the West’s recent progressive cultural apex. After all, he led the charge into gender bending and then married a black Muslim woman. But, these acts stand in stark contrast to the West’s developing tsunami of masculine cultural protectionism.

Matthew Arnold (1822-1888) – the first person to be called a ‘culturist’ practicing ‘culturism,’ – asserted that the West cycled from expansionist, flexible, (progressive) ‘Hellenism’ to contracting, law-abiding, tough, ‘Hebraism.’ The Hellenic periods lack discipline, the Hebraic ones lack ‘sweetness and light.’ In his time, Arnold saw his England as being too Hebraic and France as too Hellenistic.

We in the Alt-Lite / Alt-Right fringe, foresee a coming reckoning that may involve considerable violence. Currently, the West is experiencing a Hellenic peak; soon we will adopt the Hebraic traits of hating foreign cultures, and again accept that successful cultures usually see violence as an honorable duty. Bowie’s death represents the death of the expansionist Hellenic period, and so the dawn of the Hebraic contraction.

THERESA MAY DECIDES TO GO TO THE COUNTRY: START COUNTING THE SPOONS


Theresa May has announced that she wants an early General Election on 8 June. However, this is no longer a simple matter of the PM going to see the Queen and requesting that Parliament be dissolved and an election called. Under the Fixed Term Parliaments Act, Mrs May will require a two thirds majority in the House of Commons to vote to call an early election.

The odds are on May getting a two thirds majority because the leaders of the Labour and LibDem parties, Jeremy Corbyn and Tim Farron have both welcomed the idea of an early election. However, the position is not quite as straightforward as it might seem. The two thirds majority in the Commons is not two thirds of those who vote, but two thirds of the entire Commons personnel, that is, 417 of the 650 MPs. If there is a heavy abstention – the coward’s way out for an MP – May could struggle to reach 417 voting in favour.

THE SOUND OF THE CROWD


About a decade ago, I identified the phenomenon of Crowdism whereby individuals demand to be freed from consequences of their actions, and band together into groups as a sort of mutual aid society that will attack anyone who doesn’t agree. This forms a hive mind that snowballs and soon creates a monolithic, paranoid Utopian groupthink.

The point of Crowdism is not that evil people exist, although they do, or that people are tempted by evil, which they are. It’s that stupid ideas exist and they sound good, and that in crowds, people bow down to the judgment of others and go along with the herd, resulting in destructive and illusory “solutions.” Socializing makes us dumb because we obey the social standard, not the reality standard.

REVIEW: THE GAS CHAMBER OF SHERLOCK HOLMES

The Gas Chamber of Sherlock Holmes
By Samuel Crowell
Nine-Banded Books, 420 Pages

Reviewed by Matt Forney

The Holocaust is unique among historical events in that it’s the only one where questioning the official narrative is not allowed. You can speculate about what happened on the grassy knoll all day long, win a Pulitzer for denying the atrocities committed by the Soviet Union, and blame America for 9/11, but suggest that maybe, just maybe, the Germans weren’t cartoon villains bent on shoving every single Jew on Earth head-first into a smoldering oven and you suddenly become a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews. Being a Holocaust revisionist is illegal in many Western countries, and even in those where it is not, being tarred as a “denier” will almost certainly mean the end of your career and the ostracism of your peers.
Holocaust revisionism is lèse-majesté for the multicultural age.

THE HYMAN ROTH "ALLIANCE": IS THE DONALD GOING FULL GODFATHER II?


A Bitter Message of Faith


The Alt Right is all up in arms over Trump’s recent decision to attack the Assad Regime and possibly North Korea. Richard Spencer is happily denouncing "The Don" publicly for it, and many other Alt Right luminaries have done same. Some who even write here for this website. Many are saying, “Well, it’s been a good ride with Trump while it lasted," taking a 'drop the mic' or 'drop me off at the next station' approach to the Trump Train. All this over one petty air strike on a Muslim country. Funny for a bunch of supposed ‘fascists’!

Yes, this is a little "off script" from Trump’s previously stated agenda, as he had favoured cooperating in Syria with Assad and Putin in order to go after ISIS. The upset in Alt Right circles is perhaps, understandable. But many in the Alt Right go a lot further. They have started to see a different Donald, one who is cucked and in the pocket of the Globalists, and may soon deserve the echoing parenthesis around (((his own name))). That too is possible, and that is why there has been this Alt-Right "dump the Trump" feeling this past week or so.

NO FOLLOW UP STRIKES AGAINST ASSAD: NORTH KOREA MAIN FOCUS FOR TRUMP

Korearing to war?


It's been a week now since Trump launched 59 cruise missiles against a Syrian air base in supposed retaliation for an alleged and unproven chemical attack on a town well behind the front line.

So, what exactly is going on?

It seems, at present, that this was a one-off strike and that Trump is in fact continuing the status quo that existed before the attack, whereb Russia supported the Assad government in fighting against Islamist rebels, while the US supported the SDF in its efforts against ISIS.
