Getting into this box is what's best for both of us. During your time in the box, you will learn so much, and yet experience so little. It's a wild ride, my friend, one well worth the time spent...and let's face it, you don't have much to do these days anyway.

Potential Approximations of Neoreaction

Reblogged from Anarcho-Papist:

1) Civilization does not happen by accident.

2) Expect consequences, some which you won’t like, when you mess with the way things have always been done.

3) If something’s always been done a certain way, you’re better trying to figure out a reason why such a norm is stabilizing.

4) The existence and concentration of power cannot be eliminated; don’t waste your time trying to do so.

5) High degrees of power asymmetry tend to be stable.

6) Individuals must be socialized into their autonomy and independence.

7) Freedom imposes responsibilities, and the inability to exercise those responsibilities should entail a limiting of that freedom.

8) The innate qualities of human individuals explains a lot about society.

9) It is better to benefit the group than the individuals of that group.

10) Social structures instrumentally transform human nature into social capital.

11) Don’t fight human nature, make it work for you.

12) Justice is equality, and no one is the same.

13) There are no “rights,” only what you’re afforded by society.

14) If you won’t let someone lose, you won’t let society win.

15) Social roles should be adopted for the benefit of most, not eliminated for the benefit of a few.

  1. Good summary. Further adds to my contention that a huge part of the Dark Enlightenment is that the system no longer works to include the natural aristocracy, but rather kicks them to the curb.

    The perpetual revolution seems to be a Democratic flaw, rather than a Marxist policy; I suspect Marx would have been given some sort of useful work under a Monarch... or maybe he would have been drawn and quartered.
