    I was just wondering what you meant when you said alot of people in the alt right lack education? did you mean formal education or life experience and perspective?

      Both, really. Our educational system and culture are terribly broken. We have people whose culture consists of TV and video games and not a whole lot more.

      In Requiem for Modern Politics (1997), William Ophuls wrote of education:

      “Although the problems of American education have many causes, the transformation of the rhythm and texture of the students’ minds by television is certainly one reason why achievement at every level has declined. For example, the written vocabulary of the average elementary school student today is less than half what it was in 1945; and university teachers report a marked decline in analytical skills among their students in recent years. A genuine education is of necessity a long, difficult, complex, and sometimes boring process whose ideal outcome is the ability to see issues in context, depth, and perspective — none of which is compatible with a short attention span, an overwhelmingly present orientation, or a desire to be entertained. In other words, a real education demands a character structure entirely opposed to that of the media milieu, which has become the mainstream culture.”

      Many “alt-rightists” have done little more than change their playgrounds. They might claim to be “red-pilled,” but they retain a “character structure” that make them unable to “see issues in context, depth, and perspective,” and are characterized by “a short attention span, an overwhelmingly present orientation, or a desire to be entertained.” If one’s mentality is stunted, changing one’s ideas may have little or no salubrious effect, for one is more likely to besmirch and betray good ideas than be improved by them. And one may even be a fitting target for the indignant words of Florian Geyer: “God gave into your hands the best, the noblest, the holiest of causes — in your hands it has been like as a jewel in a pig-stye.”

        standards have not only declined because of short attention spans, but because America has had a host of non white immigration for decades and even with intelligent non whites we have to further reduce requirements because their grasp of English isn’t nearly sufficient

      I agree, and I have two hypotheses about it. 1) the education system is being dumbed down for minorities. I bet this accounts for the weakening of standardized tests like making the sat less psychometric

      2) there is a shift in emphasis to stem subjects in our education system, started nominally bc of Sputnik. While I agree stem is important, verbal reasoning is more important for day to day functioning for average peeps, especially with regard to civic decisions. When was the last time you busted out integration by parts to solve a question in your daily life? I doubt even engineers use that! Moreover, with literature and poetry there would be a cultural Marxist scrap at the administrative levels over the curriculum. Kids wouldn’t be learning Frost and Longfellow, it would be about the Ginsberg, etc.

    I think for the MGTOW issue, the correct attitude is to recognize their issues– they are real and have been damaging to the West, but to recognize the negative direction and solution of radical MGTOW.

    Men must go their own way. And they must lead and take women (and then their families) with them.

    This should be the focus

    Really great to see Mark Dyal writing again, welcome back brother!

    At the 1:02:15 to 1:08:37 marker, Greg is spot-on regarding the significant number of MGTOW types currently in the movement. A good number of younger Alt Righters are Manosphere types, animated by a crude reductionism of PUA ‘techniques’, which they try to spin into an operative life philosophy, coupled with over-the-top, alpha male posturing. I look forward to the noted forthcoming essay on the topic. It’s a subject that is overdue.

    Positive developments for the movement in 2017:

    – More (high-quality female and male) content (Youtube, etc.) creators and bigger audiences sympathetic to ethno-nationalist ideas than ever before.

    – Increase in the Bitcoin price; which probably means that there are more Dissident/Alt Right millionaires than ever before out there, who will donate some of their wealth to Counter-Currents, et al.

    – Cuckservative Bill O’Reilly was replaced at Fox News by WASP Alt Liter Tucker Carlson, who repeatedly defended the Free Speech of the Daily Stormer, VDare, etc., named and exposed AntiFa, SJWs, etc. on his show.

    – Fewer and fewer European Americans who are distracted by NFL et al. “bread and circuses” sports spectacles, due to the national anthem protests, etc.

    – Most importantly, in my opinion; everyone knows now and it is out in the open for everyone to see where each group in the movement stands on controversial and divisive issues like “White Sharia”, etc. Greater clarity and transparency is always a good thing, it is the European/W(A)SP way: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corruption_Perceptions_Index

    P.s. I absolutely love the thumbnail caption of Philosophicat’s “Hit Me with Your Best Shot” article, very funny:

      Hey, cool cover of Carolus Rex! I’m an enthusiast for the Karoliner epok. I like the estetics.
