    As regards the concept of state and government I agree. Nationalism has now become meaningless in today’s world full of globalisation and colonialists, democracy is flawed and statism is dangerous. What I believe in is the independence and autonomy of communities from the central seat of power.

    Feminism destroyed what was already crumbling, the way bacteria infects an open wound. The idealising of traditional family will not help anyone, I’m working class from a somewhat conservative background so I know about this. Women might be working but that’s not a bad thing, in spite of what feminists say most women don’t mind being able to depend on strong, independent partner, on the contrary, many will be even more disposed to it after they manage to insure themselves against becoming completely dependent on a violent spouse. Let the feminists annoy everyone and turn on each other just like the preachers of other religions do, no one needs their approval, I don’t.. They’ll disappear up their own arse. Everyone is an individual in the end, they will not be able to influence them all or undo milleniae of evolution. The system will destroy both them and their political enablers.

    As for what you call ‘decent’, you will never popularise it because it’s boring, the Dr Houses of the world are not. They affect us in ways others do not and that is why they are fascinating.

    As regards race, I’m happy with the way things are. The idiots and the ideologues still adhere to the old scientifically invalidated definitions of what it entails. I can maneuver outside the labels with ease. Just invest in your own independence and skills. On the whole, I felt much of your video was just the usual typical golden age nostalgia whinging and not as good as your previous ones. Bring on the fall of Rome.

    On the contrary, I found this to be one of your best. The commenter above appears to have surrendered himself to the atomized, hyperindividualist postmodern mindset.

    Why is decency boring? Because people are already bored by how materially comfortable they have it and are looking for decadent excitement. Decency raises a civilization up, boredom and the drive for perverse novelty brings it down.

    I also found it interesting that you would advocate going back 200 years or so, considering that you seem to be majorly pro technology and have spoken somewhat favorably of transhumanism in the past. We would not have many of our problems today without certain technologies. For instance, the Pill. And the massive bloated draconian surveillance state would exist either.

    Technology has become our master, and we its pitiful, decadent slaves.

    No, the commenter above comes from the allegedly greener pastures that people like you fantasise about and is trying to find a happy medium. Bear that in mind before using grandiose titles. The commenter also emphasised the importance of investing in oneself because strong individuals are the roots of any healthy society.

    ‘Decency raises a civilization up, boredom and the drive for perverse novelty brings it down.’

    Interesting choice of words.. Any scholar could have told you it was the drive for novelty that lead to various improvements in our lives. The Americas were found because of a drive for novelty. What then do you define as ‘perverse novelty’?

  4. Brandon says:

    Novelty for novelty’s sake; such as going crazy for the latest trendy pop culture bullshit, stranger and more bizarre sex practices, and in general a need for excitement not provided by the daily grind of being a cog in the corporate consumer rat race’s soul-stifling machine.

    I find it hard to believe that you came from “allegedly greener pastures” (unless you are 80-100 years old) because they have not existed in this country for about 70 years and only then in their thinnest and most fragile form. That said, no world is perfect, but I think just about anything would be better than the hideous one we have now.

    Also, I forgot to mention, strong individuals are not just free floating agents of their own. That’s a fantasy of atomic modernist thinking. Strong individuals are raised up on the strength of their connections to healthy institutions like the family, community, etc.

    For instance, I feel I would be a stronger individual today if I would of had a good masculine role model (ie, a father) as a boy instead of having to get my idea of what it means to be a man from pop culture and hip hop music.

    What I had in mind was quite different from that. I would have termed what you are talking about as distractions.

    ‘That’s a fantasy of atomic modernist thinking. Strong individuals are raised up on the strength of their connections to healthy institutions like the family, community, etc. ‘

    I have not denied that have I? I stated that strong societies are based on the interactions of independent individuals. That is why it is important for like minded people to invest in themselves and becoming more self reliant. The interaction and the society building will follow. At the moment it is not easy to find healthy institutions in Western society especially in America.

    ” At the moment it is not easy to find healthy institutions in Western society especially in America.”

    On this we can agree.

    The importance of technology is our long term survival; our dream period of being half-animals is coming to its close, and we’re facing either extinction, eternal servitude, or the greatest flowering of intelligence this galaxy has every seen.

    I generally restrict my videos to certain frames, otherwise they’ll become too unwieldly. That above is a whole topic unto itself.
