  1. As Stanley Hauerwas would say: “As soon as we agree to take charge of the outcome of history, we agree to do violence.” Of course it’s dead. Moldbug was in essence a pragmatic libertarian. With abandonment of libertarianism nobody wants compromise any longer. And so everyone got their imagination running wild. Many people went completely batshit when no longer constrained by anything. And everyone now has his utopian vision. And really, who would chose to be consigned to his little part of the world if he can grab Power and use it to have his way and force it on everyone he can? Well, nobody. Research shows that Power is one helluva drug. Imagined Power even! That’s why I find all these broad online reactionary alliance stuff so ridiculous. All these disparate groups would be slaughtering each other in reactionary world.

    I would argue that Accelerationists aren’t and never were a part of NRx proper. They simply happened to find what they perceived to be capitalism-as-government very cool.

      Agree. See our take on Tech-Comm:

      So, the way we see it there are three “positive” options (excluding collapse, separation or hard civil war).

      1: Something like the possibility you outlined in an earlier post.
      2: What this guy is saying:

      3: The type of “reaction” that could happen, as a result of serious event + crisis is STEEL reaction…… So it is an exploration of that possibility.

        Your project (and Hestia’s to a certain extent) I would call “realrestorationism” after realpolitik. You are not concerned with minutiae of dynastic claims and what have you, instead exploring what’s possible.
