Re: Reactionary philosophy is subversive to liberty

I don’t care for Tucker one way or another. I mean as Hoppe showed, libertarianism can be quite compatible with ‘reactionary’ concerns, as demonstrated in DTGTF. His primary criticism of the alt right was not its concerns as such but its lack of a principled approach, with which I - as someone sympa...

Re: Hubert Collins: What Kind of Pornography Should Be Banned?

Totally against banning it and as for regulation, that’s for parents with young children to do and not the state’s responsibility. Like anything, it’s fine in moderation.

Re: SJWS say the darndest things

It's to my understanding many on this kind of left in Britain aren't exactly anti- brexit. With respect to Brexit, the old Left hate the EU as they see it part of the international capitalist conspiracy. For many of them, open borders is a way the corporations can suppress wages. Also the sort of n...

Re: 70% of Wealthy Families Lose Their Wealth By The Second Generation

It might be that the elites truly are a small subset of the wealthy, though. I mean if you think about it, say 10% of the wealthy, is still a sizeable enough number to capture the 0.01% elite. Also bear in mind that these figures are in spite of the central bank and regulatory state. Wealth would pr...

Re: SJWS say the darndest things

Idk, I am certain there was some legitimate points they had to make, but expansion of the franchise in ever broader circles is, to me, a great negative.

Re: SJWS say the darndest things

They certainly used perceived grievances against old imperial regimes to rile up the masses. Whether their claims as to the grievances those empires caused stood up to scrutiny in terms of the claims they were making, is another matter entirely; it's also why I think many SJWs are so hostile to havi...

Re: 'Batman Viewed from the Right'

I mean the rendition of Batman given seems pretty accurate to me. He's one of the most positive male rolemodels as far as "superheroes" go.

Re: Paul Gottfried on Cultural Marxism

Agreed on the above. I think whatever stylistic or even ideological differences they might have, the above are cognate ideas and amount to very similar political conclusions.

Re: Paul Gottfried on Cultural Marxism

Seems to be a case of pick your poison with the left. :P Whether they speak the "language" of the working class, or not, they're still animated by the same hobgoblins of the mind.
