Don’t Like It, But Have To Deal With It

Don’t Like It, But Have To Deal With It

In the turbulent world of contemporary Western politics, one is increasingly becoming forced into dealing with issues one might desire to bypass or avoid entirely. I include myself in this category. When I think back to the political issues that deeply concerned me two short years ago, they are markedly different from what concerns me now. Even the wording of the last sentence is quite telling. I mentioned political issues, not cultural issues. I count myself among the increasing number…

Brain Orgies, Degeneracy and Standards of Value

Brain Orgies, Degeneracy and Standards of Value

Awareness is key when it comes to the standards of value that you use to measure yourself against. I know this to be true, because I used to compare myself to values almost completely opposite to the ones I hold today. Growing up as a teenager and young adult in a post 9/11 world is a different experience than it was earlier, for instance during the 90’s with its innocence. The political and cultural battle lines have hardened and the…

The Case for Political Pride

The Case for Political Pride

The celebration of LGBT persons known as «Pride» has to a large extent been very successful. In Western countries LGBT people and their supporters come out and openly express their acceptance of LBGT persons in society. The word pride conjures instant connotations to the rainbow symbol and people in “colourful” costumes partying on floats in a parade through town. It is quite remarkable how rapidly the acceptance of LGBT persons has moved forward in society. I can only talk about…

Convincing Identitarian Arguments

Convincing Identitarian Arguments

Red Ice’s Lana yesterday published a video titled “Why I Don’t Want to Become a Minority”. I think she made a strong case for identitarianism. I’m currently in the middle of a personal struggle juggling my beliefs and looking at different arguments. In the last year I’ve changed my position on religion. Going from “militant” atheist, to seeing the value that religion can provide. Or more succinctly, the damage the vacuum formed in the absence of Christianity can inflict by…

The Big Post on Identitarianism, Strategic and Tactical Political Opinions and Beyond Ethno-Nationalism

The Big Post on Identitarianism, Strategic and Tactical Political Opinions and Beyond Ethno-Nationalism

I’ve recently taken an interest in identitarianism. I found this concept through listening to interviews with members of the Alt-Right on various podcasts and shows. Since I’ve begun exploring their ideas and concepts I’ve come to realize that while they have many valuable things to say that deserve further exploration I’m struggling to reconcile my interest in this with my libertarianism. A not inconsequential portion of the Alt-Right are collectivists and they advocate for identity politics. At first this sent…

The Great Moral Dis-equivalency

The Great Moral Dis-equivalency

There exists a great divide between our collective self-image and our actions. We like to look upon ourselves as a rational society following clearly defined moral rules. We hold up equality before the law as a beacon to look up to. Why then, don’t we follow these sentiments up in practice? Moral double standards are frustratingly common in the political discussion space. A stricter adherence to the rules is demanded of people on what can be described as the right,…

Cultural and Political Identity (Part 2)

Cultural and Political Identity (Part 2)

(This post had been rendered somewhat obsolete by a new post found here)   In yesterday’s post I finished with a brief summary on my stance on Norwegian nationalism. Culturally I feel alienated from mainstream Norwegian culture. I feel no connection to what are considered mainstream authors, tv-shows or political pundits. In fact if I could choose, I would probably self-identify as an American. I first took an interest in America as a political and historical entity during Ron Paul’s…
