To: Majority Rights
I’ve read your post this evening. It has given me a few laughs.
If you think I have “bipolar syndrome” or “schizophrenia,” all I can say is please review your own archives and test the sanity of your own contributors before passing judgment on us.
I’ve just had an insightful moment. Really, that is all there is to it, and it came at the same time that it happened last time, when I noticed something (purely as an analyst) in a similar period of crisis.
Back then, a bunch of White Nationalist fools on the internet similarly said that I was crazy (when in reality I had only overworked myself), undoubtedly to strut their own feathers and puff themselves up to take advantage of the situation in eyes of their non-movement.
A few points:
(1) I never had any interest in writing for “Majority Rights.” Why is that a problem? I’ve always been focused on my own country.
(2) I honestly don’t care what a few Neo-Nazi ideologues on the internet have to say.
– Especially ones who don’t even live in my country.
– Especially ones who live in my country who aren’t doing any useful work.
– Especially people who are clearly nutty (i.e., J Richards and HAC) and who believe in fringe ZOG conspiracy theories.
– Especially ones whose influence is purely counterproductive and absolutely useless in trying to reach people who live in my area.
I don’t even waste my time responding to them anymore. They are not worth the time of reading.
(3) I have no interest in your little project of “ontological nationalism” or whatever you have been doing over there. Good luck with it though.
Please note that we have been drawing attention to the so-called “youth violence” for months now at OD. The “youth violence” which is now being unleashed in your country.
While you were lost for years in the esoteric world of metaphysics and ideology, we were discussing the real issues that resonate with real people in America.
(4) Do you see me attacking you? I don’t even bother responding to you. I don’t even read your website. I quit reading Majority Rights a long time ago because it seemed to me that you had become lost in your own little philosophical bubble.
(5) Yes, I do like the people who are involved in the Tea Party. I like people who are Christians. I like people who are conservatives. I like a lot Southerners who vote for the Republican Party. I like people who live in places that I care about.
If I didn’t like those people and those places, why would I spend so much of my damn time trying to help them?
Why should I hate my own people? If you hate your own people (because they don’t identify with your esoteric ideological mindset), how can you talk to them? Why should I identify with a bunch of ideologues (the keepers of the flame of Nazism) instead of with my own neighbors?
Who is more useful? My own people or a bunch of ideologues and fantasists scattered across the world? It is a “no brainer.”
Why should I hate conservatives? I’m a conservative myself.
These people say that I am crazy:
Yeah, those people. The irony being that it comes at just the historical moment when their bookish obsession with ontology and metaphysics looks ever more like a fool’s errand.
(6) As someone who publishes Constantin von Hoffmeister and Soren Renner, the idea of GuessedWorker questioning my sanity, someone who immerses himself in “ontological nationalism” and all kinds of esoteric nonsense, which is utterly of no interest whatsoever to ordinary people, I will just say that is really the funniest thing I have heard all day.
Thanks for the amusement. After watching London burn and Wall Street crash, I needed some Triple AAA comic relief.
Note: Has it ever occurred to you that if you communicated with people in terms of their own experience (as opposed to being adrift in a totally irrelevant ideological morass) that they would be more likely to respond to you?
Note: As I predicted, Anders Breivik was the omen that came before the storm, and now no one in London cares much about Norway or even remembers what happened there.
Good Point: I will admit though that you are right and that I do need a few days to rest. That is a good point. The only problem on my end is that I work too hard to analyze great historical crises.
While it is true that I am overworked and exhausted, please observe the legions of lunatics on your own website, who sound crazy on any ordinary day, each of whom are suffering from the chronic debilitating effects of their own secular fantasy ideology.
At my wooziest point of exhaustion, I sound more lucid than them!
