Imperial Circular 11/06/17.

(See last’s weeks circular here.) (Apologies for the formatting, but wordpress uses pretty shitty code. You can download a PDF: Imperial Circular 11 06 17 )

1: The World’s Most Powerful Man says the EU is Now in Existential Crisis. 

The crisis is the point – the worse things get, the better they will be – for us, the Ruling Elite.

2: Ruling Elites are Tranzis.

Prince Metternich was right!

Via the Indomitable Undiscovered Jew:

Is it necessary to give a proof of this last fact ? We think we have furnished it in remarking that one of the sentiments most natural to man, that of nationality, is erased from the Liberal catechism, and that where the word is still employed, it is used by the heads of the party as a pretext to enchain Governments, or as a lever to bring about destruction. The real aim of the idealists of the party is religious and political fusion, and this being analysed is nothing else but creating in favour of each individual an existence entirely independent of all authority, or of any other will than his own, an idea absurd and contrary to the nature of man, and incompatible with the needs of human society.

 3: Catholics Were Right All Along.

“ Contemporary liberalism is less a political philosophy than a façade for undermining extant social and legal mores.”

See the book the Myth of Liberalism. 

4: Patron Theory is the Political Theory of (Nearly) Everything. 

See 4 for the Grand Theory that puts 1,2,3 in context.

5: Leaders have Limited Time for Strategy and Never Forget Logistics.  

Short, brief but very useful from Lead and Gold – one of the best blogs on the net.

6: Are You Taking Notes?

The following video from Christopher Coker is choc full of interesting titbits and insights. Of course, where Coker sees chaos (presuming a “formal” reading) is in reality a strategy of the Tranzis. You understand, however, from the video just how dangerous the global situation is; that USG has pushed Russia closer to China and China and Russia closer to the Islamic world. As we will show in our forthcoming STEEL-cam manifesto part 3c1, this is the foreign policy of the “priests”, or Exeter Hall. 

7:America is Not A Peaceful Country. 

The breakdown of peace and security is one of the three key pillars of the current crisis.

8: USG’s Strategy of Annihilation and Humiliation Regarding Islamists. 

Does it not amaze you when people croak about the softness and weakness of USG’s response to Islamic terror? USG fucked up Afghanistan and then Iraq, followed by Libya; Syria; Yemen; stoked a millennium long hatred between the Sunni and Shia; USG is now arming the Kurds (which will tie down the Turks); letting Muslims rape, rob and kill in the homelands in order to slowly build up a reservoir of homicidal rage that can be directed if and when necessary.

Comrades!

USG is the Planet’s Alpha Predator.   

A feast of resources.
 Is this wise of China, however? The Chinese have caused the surrounding countries to form partnerships. India, Vietnam and Japan have more people, money and technology between them – never-mind the fact that they also have USG standing behind them.
 Luttwak thinks that the Intelligence Agencies are stocked with “young adventurous, American women from Utah”. That Americans have no talent for “secrecy” because they like to advertise themselves. It is a “sociological problem.”
 See 1 (start at 21:10.)
 See 2  ( start at 52:10).
 See also this book.
 Also, see this article that might shed light on Luttwak’s claim about when the “mediocre” seize an organisation.
 Finally, see this for a Red Pill take on women and Intelligence Agencies. 
Napoleon Bonaparte would have been mystified and horrified by all this; the best kind of woman is she who has “the most children” Bonaparte thought.
To which we say:
Even though you try to put people under control, it is impossible. You cannot do it. The best way to control people is to encourage them to be mischievous. Then they will be in control in a wider sense. To give your sheep or cow a large spacious meadow is the way to control him. So it is with people: first let them do what they want, and watch them. This is the best policy. To ignore them is not good. That is the worst policy. The second worst is trying to control them. The best one is to watch them, just to watch them, without trying to control them.
We will have more to say about this paradoxical strategy later.
Following on from 12, this article is very sober and very serious about creating new polities.

Blue Team sponsors Iran and Red team sponsors the Saudis and Israelis, use the “barbarians” to control the “barbarians”.
The latest in our series STEEL-cam V……
Start here, then here for the back story.
No one lays down the LAW better than Chris aka Reactionary Future. This post is choc full of zingers, insults, challenges and provocations. He has also adopted the term “accelerationism” which we have as well. (See here and here.)
Here are some extracts:
The analysis in the book of the failure of left wing groups to be effective against capitalism, whilst being very astute, lacks a clear explanation for why it occurred. The authors claim that the cause can be traced to a number of factors; including the discrediting of Stalinist regimes, the development of new movements among the student bodies in France with the 1968 revolutions, as well as the failure of the communist party to support the student protests. This lacks rigor, and from the absolutist angle what they have done is effectively followed the symptoms of a process which they are unable to account for. Considering the limitations imposed by a lack of awareness of this process, their ability to follow its contours is exceptionally impressive.Regular readers will be aware that this process is that of unsecure power acting in familiar ways and the usage of proxy actors to destabilise enemy power centers. It is remarkable that the authors note that the 1968 movement and others around it were influenced and took their cue from civil rights movements in the US, but we can go further and supply the abstract framework which they call for in the book. Much of this is already covered in the first edition of the journal. (Bold and italics mine.)

 

Good, always remember, who pays and who benefits?

Chris:

The aspect of power utilizing movements putatively against it as a means of strengthening itself is an abstract point which many seem to be unable to grasp. I am sure Srnicek and Williams have the cognitive sophistication to do so.

(Bold and italics and underline mine.)

This observation is one we formed just this week. People, even smart people, have difficulty, we believe, grasping the essence of this and all the ramifications of insecure power. The closest analogy is the problem people have with Darwin’s theory of evolution, which, as one critic complained was a “strange inversion of reasoning”. However, Patron Theory is Darwin’s theory reversed, it is a “skyhook” and not a “crane”. We will, nevertheless, later on this blog make additions to this theory using natural selection, memetics and Machiavelli concept of “political man” and his psychology.

A challenge to the Alt-Right and NRx:

The alt-right and neoreaction are likewise folk politics movements which have no intention to offer a threat to neoliberal hegemony/ unsecure power. They check every single box which Srnicek and Williams use to categories folk politics. They are reactive, ignore long term strategic goals in favour of tactics, prefer practices that are inherently fleeting, choose familiarity over the future, and lionize voluntarism and spontaneity over the institutional. In addition, they privilege the local as the site of authenticity, choose the small over the large, favour projects unscalable beyond a small community and “reject the project of hegemony, valuing withdrawal or exit rather than building a broad counter-hegemony.

(Bold and italics and underline mine.)

We think there is some truth to this, we said similar things here.

STEEL-cam is not premised on “politics as wish” but premised on the assumption that you are “reasoning from the point of view of the state.”

“A basic guide is supplied by the actions of Lee Kuan Yew and Deng Xiaoping and the other Asian developmental states of the mid-twentieth century.”

We agree.

Lee Kuan Yew is instructive of the role of the developmental state and liberties provided by state led technological development against the negative liberties of the neoliberal/ unsecure power system of the west. Any claims that the free market is the driver of technological innovation are flat out false and fed by historical illiteracy. When faced with free markets or protection, he chose protectionism. A rejection of fideitic observance of the God of neoliberalism was replaced with the application of human reason to conclude that the population required protected roles within society which would allow for a development of the virtues of the population and the unlocking of liberty which such an action would supply. Once a strengthened society and strengthened set of industries developed, an opening of markets on an equal footing then offered contingent benefits depending on the circumstances. Our argument is that this developmental state doesn’t go far enough. The state requires more power and a complete rejection of the absurdities of neoliberal/ unsecure power predation. Neoliberal/ unsecure power is a shackle on mankind which works by holding back development and true liberty to secure itself.

We agree: A ruler (or a state) only becomes a tyrant/tyrannical when they/it do not have enough power. We begin to set out our thoughts here, but we will have more to say later about the role of the state in STEEL-cam geo-economics.

We will have more to say on absolutism soon, however, in STEEL-cam V Absolutism.  )

  1. “STEEL-cam is not premised on “politics as wish” but premised on the assumption that you are “reasoning from the point of view of the state.””

    I keep making this point. No one has any idea of the exact genesis, issues, actors and events that will produce a Reaction. Like Evola, all we are doing is keeping alive an idea of Tradition in preparation for a time it may be relevant.

    1. Hmm. Our “reasoning as a state” does not always make for comfortable reading.

      The traditions that you care about are like mice getting crushed by the power of the state.

      Even if your tradition is like a healthy dog, a sick elephant can crush it.

      We think of the state as a predator, a machine, as an entity in itself.

      One of our chief concerns, of course, is that the needs of the state and the needs of the people, with all their various traditions, needs to be re-thought from the ground up.

      The modern state is essentially anti-human.
