No. 12: More Against the Metaphysics of Civilization

Kantbot

I wrote this up as a comment to this post by Anarcho-Papist, thought I’d put it up here as well. “This nobody, where is he?” – Euripides, “Cyclops” Society isn’t a “metaphysically real being” though, and I think, philosophically, you have a lot more ground to lay before you can simply assert that it is […]

No. 9: Goethe as Forgotten Ideal of Masculinity

Kantbot

One thing you may have noticed by now, if you’ve been paying attention at all to any of my postings anywhere online, either here, or on twitter or reddit or anywhere else, is that I talk a lot about Goethe, the 18th/19th century German poet, in fact, you could say I’m a little obsessed with […]

No 6: Thoughts on Entryism and the Ego of Neoreaction

Kantbot

“It was further agreed that during this tour and in the future, if they should stay together, there should be a sociable form of working together, in the spirit of which they had begun. They only thought that since this was a matter of good mood and free choice, there should not in fact be […]

Kantbot

In the course of endless discussions across the Twitter-verse we very often hear about something called ‘Modernity,’ and what this is I’m not exactly sure I know, but I have looked into the matter a bit, and will here report some of my results. More often than not, what I observe is people deploying the […]

No. 11: Thoughts on the Metaphysics of Civilization

Kantbot

“Some speak of The Public as if it were someone with whom they have had dinner at the Leipzig Fair in the Hotel de Saxe. Who is this Public? The Public is not a thing, but rather an idea, a postulate, like The Church.” -Friedrich Schlegel, “Lyceum” Aphorism #35 (See also) During a recent discussion […]

No. 8: Comment on the False and Necessitous Aesthetics of Politics

Kantbot

There is one passage from Schiller that sticks out in my memory again and again when considering this phenomenon: Only impotence and perversity have recourse to false and necessitous appearance, and individual men as well as entire peoples who either ‘help forward reality by means of appearance’ or ‘(aesthetic) appearance by means of reality’ — […]

No. 13: Traditionalism is Modernism…

Kantbot

I. Excuse the dashed off nature of this post. It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, but I wanted to comment after reading this post by one of the better Neoreactionaries out there, Henry Dampier: Traditionalism is Modernism. Though the Trichotomy is nice in theory, in practice it seems obvious to most that Neoreaction […]

No. 10: Comment About Gun ‘Tragedies’

Kantbot

We hear so much talk these days from the cathedral trying to conjure up guns as the ’cause’ of the growing trend of youth spree killings. The accelarating nature of this problem though is better explained by the ongoing failure and collapse of the Progressive worldview. These young spree shooters are not coming from the […]

No. 7: Simple Definition of Neoreaction

Kantbot

Neoreaction is a Post-Modern project united by a broad skepticism or rejection of dominant Progressive narratives about history and politics, which is why continental philosophy has bled into Neoreaction a bit, because Post-Modernism is the skepticism and/or rejection of the ultimate truth-validity of meta-narratives. What unites Neoreaction, or the hard core conspiracy theorist and the […]
