You know, I think most of us can agree that the basic philosophical premises of the far right have been established: HBD, the academy lording over society, leftward drift being more than just Cultural Marxism, the importance of sexual restraint, and finally, for a daring few, the role of the merchant in all this.
So, we’ve got the basics. Now, why aren’t we exploring new things? What do I mean? Well, in all fairness let me start by saying I am guilty of this as well. Thus far, I have added very little new stuff to the far right, and I am basically attention whoring. Fair enough. Still, hear me out. We have a ton of blogs about this or that societal decline, or racial violence, but how many blogs do their own historical research? How many artists do we have? Now how many snarky political commentary pieces do we have?
I think there is a problem there. Yes, I know modern society sucks. How about telling me something new? If we look at other intellectual movements, part of the way many of them rose to prominence is they also had artistic expression behind them. German Romanticism is the most obvious example to me, but I am sure you can find others. Where are the painters? The musicians? The writers?
You see, you can argue with a snarky blog post you read all day about Tumblr-tacular issues. What people can’t argue with, is a painting or a story that is well crafted, and speaks to their soul. How do you think German nationalists took power in the 19th century? How did the left take total control of America in the 20th? You could argue lynching and slavery facts, what you couldn’t argue with was a left wing story like To Kill a Mockingbird. To this effect, I will be penning a short story here and posting a link on my blog. I can’t paint or write music, but I can write, however crudely, some stories.
My advice to fellow reactionaries? Instead of waiting for the day of the rope to come when American finally invades Iran and triggers global nuclear warfare after the petrodollar melts down and the ultimate chimp-out happens; why not instead put your artistic talents to work? Even if you convince no one, you will be expressing yourself, and you might feel better. And remember, you can argue with this, but you can’t as easily argue with this.
Stay tuned for some amateur story writing by me.
