Reification and Neo-Reaction or Conservatism

“Reification” is a five-dollar philosophical word usually associated with Marxism, but it simply means thinking of a something as a thing that is not a thing.

This occurred to me with this Social Matter post. The author talks about the importance of white identity, ethnoculture and nationalism. Then he starts on the neoreactionary idea that nationalism is just socialism, and we can’t have any of that, can we!

He then starts on the idea that “Western civilization” has produced “science” and “capitalism”, “personal liberty”, “cooperation” and “philosophy”. He emits “art”, “engineering” and a few others, but you get the idea.

Why the quotes? Progressives and mainstream conservatives- who are really just another kind of progressive- love to use abstractions to communicate their idea of the good. Progressives are rather dishonest about it- their idea of the good is really just killing you and taking your stuff, but conservatives really mean it.

Conservatives and neoreactionaries really believe there is a thing called “science” that exists independently of human’s biological existence. But “science” is something that happens when white men think about how the world works. Having done this, other peoples and races can do this, but it proceeds only from white men. “Philosophy” is something that happens when white men think about the nature of knowledge. Having done that, other races can do it, a little, but it starts with white men.

Other races have art and literature, and some have craftsmanship, but again in the context of our civilization these proceed from the actual biology of white people. To have any of these things, you need white people.

What is good for white people is good for science, art, philosophy, and engineering. No abstract system produces these, and so no abstract system can take the precedence over the well-being of white people.


About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    Yeah, but on the subject of belief, don’t think that the parasites actually believe they are parasites. They see it the other way around. I think black people don’t think of afrocentrism as a self-esteem boosting set of lies, but as the truth. They think Jesus was black because a ten-times translated quote about “feet of bronze and hair of wool” makes Christ black. I think most minorities generally believe that if they rid the world (or at least their environment) of white people, then everything will be a paradise. Facts and reality don’t intrude. The good news is that they lack the ability to really do anything about their hatred without being enabled and supported. The bad news is that they are well-enabled and supported.

      Only a few nutjob, “educated” blacks buy into crazy shit like afrocentrism.

      There’s an Amren article about a public school teacher’s experiences with blacks wherein he asks his class what they think of a black man, Barack Obama, being president. One of the girls responds that they’re all in trouble if a black guy is running the show. Blacks aren’t geniuses but they’re often simple enough to see through obvious bullshit. They realize that if whitey leaves they’re all in deep shit.

        There’s an even simpler example, although it’s maybe apocryphal: Muhammad Ali, after fighting in Africa, looked to one of the many members of his entourage and said, “Thank God my granddaddy got on that boat.”

    So what you’re disagreeing about with Mark Christensen is an impression of his article and none of his actual arguments? Before beating it with such ferocity, perhaps you could devote a brief sketch as to why this impression you have bears any resemblance to the reality. Of Christensen. Of Social Matter. Of neoreaction. Something.
