The Original Optics Cucks, Part 3:
Narcissism & Honor

Rousseau’s Émile

3,539 words

Part 3 of 3 (Part 2 here)

This conversation took place in the spring of 2015. We would like to thank KC for making this transcript. 

Greg Johnson: When people talk about vanity, another term that they’ll use is narcissism. “So and so is very narcissistic.” Again, I think that there’s a certain sense of narcissism in which it’s not a bad thing. The myth of Narcissus is that he’s captivated by his own reflection in the water, and he basically exists as a prisoner of his own image, reflected in something external. Read more …

What is the Metaphysics of the Right?

5,486 words

In my essay “What is the Metaphysics of the Left?” I identified the fundamental presuppositions underlying the Leftist worldview. In the present essay, I intend to build on that analysis by showing how it can enable us, with relative ease, to identify our own metaphysics, the metaphysics of the Right. In short, my approach is indirect: I intend to arrive at our own most fundamental presuppositions by, in essence, negating the metaphysics we reject and revile. Read more …

2. A Will to Nothingness: The Essence of Leftist Metaphysics

What is the Metaphysics of the Left? Part One

3,629 words

Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)

Metaphysics is the science of what is real. It is the most fundamental branch of philosophy; other philosophical ideas are derived from or based upon metaphysical convictions. For example, the Epicurean principle that pleasure is the highest good follows from its materialism and rejection of belief in an afterlife. However, it is also possible to speak of metaphysics outside of the context of philosophical systems. Read more …

There Has Never Been a Better Time to Be Alive
The Ultimate White Pill

4,356 words

My friends on the Right bemoan the fact that we’re not living in Leave It To Beaver. They play the “what era would you like to live in?” game, picking any time other than this one. Because this is the End Time, you see; the Kali Yuga, the Wolf Age. Hell, yes! It is all those things and more. But I, for one, feel privileged to live in Dystopia. Truly, there has never been a better time to be alive. Read more …

And Then They Came for Ricardo Duchesne

3,102 words

Several years ago, I published a mammoth review essay on Ricardo Duchesne’s The Uniqueness of Western Civilization. I regard it as one of the most interesting and important books I have ever read. Duchesne is a valiant defender of Western civilization against the madness of politically correct academics – and now, it seems, he may be paying the price. Read more …

The Criminalization of Dissent

The “March for Love” in Auckland on March 23.

3,955 words

New Zealand is in a state of mass hysteria in the wake of the Christchurch mosque shootings, which even a few mainstream media pundits are starting to question, and some are calling for calm reason.

Political Violence:
Mainly a Left-Wing Phenomenon

Ulrike Meinhof, one of the leaders of the German Red Army Faction, in prison.

2,786 words

Political violence is a phenomenon in all historical ages, but we have become somewhat unaccustomed to it in the West given that things were fairly quiet for several decades until the new threat of jihadi terrorism emerged. Europe has had more political violence than the US, and on a bigger scale, peaking in the 1970s and ‘80s, the most famous case in recent years bring Anders Breivik. Read more …

An Olive Branch to the Left

Falling for Lies at Standing Rock

Heap big hokum at Standing Rock

1,948 words

Just in time for Thanksgiving, leftists were given the perfect opportunity to up their “tying white guilt narratives to celebration of Thanksgiving” game: Native Americans are getting shot down in the streets because the white man is ruining their water and taking their land again! Yes, I am talking about the Standing Rock Sioux’s protests over the North Dakota Access Pipeline. To be clear, I think it’s entirely legitimate for us to have disagreements about energy policy, the relative environmental safety of the various methods of extracting and transporting oil, and so on and so forth.  Read more …
