In his classic “The Redneck Manifesto”, author Jim Goad says “If I don’t work I’ll starve. If I don’t write I’ll die.”
This sums it up for me. I am currently undergoing special, high intensity training of a highly stressful and demanding nature. Nonetheless I must take a few minutes of my day to continue the war on socialism and the intellectual and cultural wasteland it produces.
Some things are just too awful to contemplate. This of course varies from person to person. Moldbug is shocked by the frankly racist blog South Africa Sucks, and while he mentions it he will not link it. You can now find it at www.mysasucks.com should you be curious. When your friends and relatives are being regularly raped, robbed and murdered by black people you will tend to hate them, even though the sentiment isn’t completely rational. I won’t hold it against them.
What frightens and repels me in this manner? The basic cable channel FX has a show about an outlaw biker gang, theoretically modeled on “Hamlet.” They occupy a small town near the Bay Area, own the police force, assault and intimidate the residents, and sell assault weapons to Oakland drug gangs. They are unambiguously the heroes of the story.
Why? They keep their town free from developers! What does a socialist hate more than a violent criminal who engages in the illegal firearms trade? Why a developer of course! Other antagonists are a white supremacist biker gang that manufactures and sells meth (Drugs are bad, mmmkay?) and a white supremacist group hired by developers to run the hero bikers out of town.
The dual nature of socialist revolution is its most obvious feature. Socialists love laws, regulations, and other rules, and put a great deal of effort into demanding others follow them, and for this reason so many socialists are lawyers. So, then, do socialists adhere to these same rules? By no means! (Hehe that St. Paul thing again.) Socialists simply ignore, or openly violate any rule they don’t like, because if they don’t like it it is by definition illegitimate. The common name for this is civil disobedience.
Let’s take the developer thing. Land development is regulated by complex rules most places, very complex rules in places where socialists are in political control. Anyone wishing to build on and profit from a piece of land they paid for and pay taxes on must adhere very carefully to all of these rules, at great time and expense. These rules give countless opportunities for those opposed (usually socialists) to stop the process by legal means.
If the permission is granted anyway? Socialists will use extralegal means, such as vandalism, or protest to stop it. All that shit goes right out the window when socialists are unhappy.
Conservatives have a strange dependence on the rule of law. But there is no law in a socialist society. Adhering to the law other than as a matter of discretion (which is plenty of reason enough, you don’t want to be on the wrong side of the IRS) is just stupid. Law starts when a community agrees on it. Those who don’t agree on it aren’t in the community, they are “outlaws.”
