Long needed update

Oh wow, how the time has passed…

First off, I would like to apologize for missing the featured articles and videos, as well as being essentially silent for the past two weeks. I’ve been very busy, finishing up my school work and exams.

I have also been thinking lately about my ideology, specifically as related to others in this growing pool of reactionary dissidents. I tend to disagree with many different groups, especially those in favor of secularism, capitalism, and to some extent monarchy as well. I would actually be interested in hearing from people who identify as from those parts of the reactionary blogosphere, in an effort to get various different points of view about those topics. So please, if you have the time, describe why you believe in those points in the comments below.

Just because I have taken a hiatus from blogging does not mean that I’ve taken a break from my enlightenment. I’ve been simultaneously reading de Tocqueville’s Democracy in America as well as Carlyle’s Shooting Niagra: and After, the later of which I discovered on accident when I first checked out Radish Mag not too long ago. Very interesting reading on both ends!

I promise that I will be back up and running soon!

Till then, keep up the Good Fight.

Reactionary Consensus II: Deep Heritage

The Reactivity Place

…better grab a cup of coffee…

In the previous installment, I discussed how reactionaries view the development of hierarchy as a natural human phenomenon that promotes the common good, and adaptive group fitness thereby. Natural hierarchy is foundational to the development and maintenance of civilization. This view is in stark contrast to the Cathedralist (Progressivist) view which cast a Marxian hermeneutic of suspicion on most phenomena that interfere with their hold on power.

In this, the second volume of the planned ten part series on the Reactionary Consensus, I cover something Nick Land dubbed “Deep Heritage”. And while I’m not entirely certain that I mean by the phrase precisely the same thing Land means by it, I will attempt to define it here for my purposes, and explain how it is part of the coalescent reactionary consensus. Deep Heritage is not as easy to define as hierarchy, which…

Reactionary Consensus I: Hierarchy

The Reactivity Place

In a post a couple days ago, I asked what can Catholic Traditionalists, Ethno-Nationalists, and Techno-Commercialists, assorted Particularists and non-brain-dead PUAs agree on? In answer to that question, I identified key ideas in what might coalesce into a Neoreactionary Consensus. This is Part One of what I hope to be a ten part series expanding upon that bulleted list.

The first broad area of agreement is hierarchy — a system of rank (formal or informal) within a social group under which the rights and duties of each member are (at least broadly) understood (explicitly or implicitly) by all group members.

:
Reactionaries affirm that hierarchy is not only natural, but almost purely beneficial to group success. Hierarchy is not merely not evil, but an enabling trait of civilization. Since hierarchy is adaptively advantageous, it is easy to see why reactionaries believe it to be part of the law of…

On Truth

Hello everyone, I will be keeping today’s post fairly short.

I want everyone to ponder this quote, by the English author George Orwell:

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act

You are told by the people situated in the upper echelons of society that what they say is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. But how do you know that their knowledge and message is accurate and not in any way deceitful? Are you just going to go by blind faith and believe them? For those of you readers that are still stuck in the trance of their message, just take a second out of your day and think. Think about what they say. Educate yourself about their opinion, as well as the completely opposite stance. Compare the two and get a more objective answer about the situation. Just because you’re told that some thought is utterly insane and everyone else has the same feeling regarding the idea, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t question it to be absolutely sure yourself.

Sheeple

Don’t just have blind faith, my friends.

Update: Twitter and About Me Page

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to give you guys a quick update on how things are looking behind the scenes of The Reactionary Thinker:

  • I have added a more comprehensive About Me page, which can be found under My Ideology, or here: https://reactionarythinker.wordpress.com/about-me/
  • The My Ideology page will be coming along in due time, comprised of moderately lengthy pages, with each one discussing a certain issue relating to my ideology. It may be a little while, just because I wish to really spend some time delving into the ideology and its base ideas, and my schedule is becoming incredibly busy due to graduation approaching quickly.
  • I now have a Twitter channel! Check it out here at: http://www.twitter.com/SGReactionary

That’s about it for now! Make sure to follow if you’re a fellow reactionary or if you are interested in becoming enlightened about this ideology!

On Modern Media: The Gosnell Case

One of the main forces driving the decline of society is the Mainstream Media and the role that it plays in the everyday lives of citizens all around the world. The fine line between opinionated reporting and factual dispatches was swiftly and silently erased many years back.  What we now have as our news sources favor a sensationalist style of media intended to captivate the minds and hearts of viewers, listeners, and readers, and to subliminally sway them towards the opinion of the news agency. Of course, to justify their actions in both the eyes of the audience and their own eyes, they will play it off as the “morally right” or “politically correct” opinion. This can be done by shifting the tone of the story, highlighting certain aspects of a case (instead of objectively covering the entire report), or even blatantly covering up or ignoring an item of news. Now the American media and its boss, the White House, which effectively controls and manipulates the stories related to us by the media [1], can efficiently attempt to change the public’s opinion regarding almost any topic.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell

Dr. Kermit Gosnell

An example of this control is the criminal case of a Dr. Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia, PA. Gosnell, 72, has been charged with eight counts of first-degree murder due to his involvement in his own abortion clinic, the Women’s Medical Society. “What’s wrong with that?” many “pro-choice” citizens would ask, “He, and the mothers who attended the clinic, were just exercising their legal right to an abortion!” It’s not so simple though. The problem stems from what he really did behind the scenes, which is far more grotesque than what an abortion already is. Here is the opening paragraph from the Report of the Grand Jury:

This case is about a doctor who killed babies and endangered women. What we mean is that he regularly and illegally delivered live, viable, babies in the third trimester of pregnancy – and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors. The medical practice by which he carried out this business was a filthy fraud in which he overdosed his patients with dangerous drugs, spread venereal disease among them with infected instruments, perforated their wombs and bowels – and, on at least two occasions, caused their deaths. Over the years, many people came to know that something was going on here. But no one put a stop to it.

Here is the section of the report discussing the condition of his facility:

The clinic reeked of animal urine, courtesy of the cats that were allowed to roam (and defecate) freely.  Furniture and blankets were stained with blood. Instruments were not properly sterilized.  Disposable medical supplies were not disposed of; they were reused, over and over again.  Medical equipment – such as the defibrillator, the EKG, the pulse oximeter, the blood pressure cuff – was generally broken; even when it worked, it wasn’t used.  The emergency exit was padlocked shut.  And scattered throughout, in cabinets, in the basement, in a freezer, in jars and bags and plastic jugs, were fetal remains.  It was a baby charnel house.

[2]

Not only did he murder newborns in inhumane ways, but, as the report puts it, he was a “filthy fraud” who “overdosed his patients with dangerous drugs, spread venereal disease…” and in at least two occasions, caused the mothers to die as well. Now, why aren’t large media outlets like CNN covering this? It’s a sensational case due to its horrific nature, and would be able to reel in millions of viewers, which would bring along advertisers’ dollars. Shouldn’t CNN be vying for the “best coverage” and more air time of this case with other greedy news outlets like Fox News and MSNBC? It would be a fantastic opportunity for them to attempt to put their own spin on things. Though, as Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post put it:

The only logical conclusion for the absence of coverage is the obvious one: the mainstream media’s overwhelming bias in favor of the pro-choice position. The Gosnell story is the pro-choice movement’s worst nightmare.

[3]

Here is another quote from Rubin’s opinion piece:

One can suspect this story-selection bias is intentional (delinquencies invariably run in one direction), or one can allow that the lack of geographic, political and social diversity in newsrooms causes the MSM to miss such stories again and again. Either way, the mainstream media swim in a stream of bias, bumping along until their course is altered by outside forces. But the mainstream media can no longer get away with the hide-the-story game for very long. Too many alternative outlets are nipping at the MSM’s heels and carrying news the mainstream media won’t. The mainstream media have, meanwhile, turned off large sections of readers and viewers because they think most of the MSM is in the tank for liberals.

[4]

Now, what I’m criticizing here is not the biased “left-wing media” trying to cover up a story that could shake up the debate over abortion. While I am strictly pro-life and believe a case of this nature could change some people’s perspectives on the issue, my main criticism is aimed towards all of the major media stations: Why are you picking and choosing what you should air? Last time I checked, news is not meant to be subjective. It is supposed to present people with facts on matters of importance in order to allow them to formulate their own opinions on the subject. CNN, are you really telling us that stories on “‘90210’s’ Ian Ziering ‘excited’ to join Chippendales” [4] or “5 reasons you want Google Fiber in your city” [5] are more important than a fraudulent doctor that killed babies and women, sold illegal prescription drugs, and spread disease? You, as well as all of the other mainstream news outlets, should at least post a little blurb alerting the viewers of the heinous actions committed by this man.

Even though the case is beginning to pick up some coverage in mainstream news sources, it should have been fully covered from day one, which was when the trial began on March 18th. It didn’t take news sources almost a month to cover the Trayvon Martin case, or the Drew Peterson case. Why wait with another high profile case?

While I am ashamed at the bias occupying the established media stations, I still cannot decide who is more at fault: the media, for committing these acts of manipulation, or the people, willingly obeying and believing anything that sprouts from their television and computer screens into their retinas.

Welcome!

Hello, and welcome to The Reactionary Thinker, a blog and news source dedicated to bringing you information pertaining to the ideology often classified as reactionary or far right! I will be using this blog and a YouTube channel, which I will set up shortly, to enlighten members of the reactionary community, as well as those outside of it that have an open mind and take interest in our philosophy. While viewing this blog, I encourage you to expand your mind and attempt to wrap your head around what I will present to you, especially due to the fact that the Far-Right ideology is usually misrepresented by the mainstream media (MSM), our education system, and those generally found to the left of us on the political spectrum. I will make sure to present both sides of all arguments that I make in order to provide you with a less biased and more objective source of knowledge and information, which is lacking in some of the other reactionary blogs and websites that I frequent. In order to ensure the lack of bias, I encourage you to comment with your own sources (as long as you cite them) in order to defend, or even to question my positions.

Now let me give you some background information about myself and why I chose to create this blog. I am currently a Senior in High School and will be attending a highly accredited university for an engineering degree starting in the fall. Throughout my four years of secondary schooling, I have come to realize the degeneracy developing in all echelons of society and in our government, as well as the complete and utter mismanagement of an already broken economic system; I can credit the cause of my realization to the amplification of immoral values by naive teenagers and the culture and society that they submit to. Unfortunately, yet predictably, the societal decline is not being televised. People today from all over the world are being blinded by the ideas of the enlightenment and french revolution: egalitarianism, democracy, and liberalism. Kids are taught in schools that there is no alternative to these three ideas and the media reinforces them by repeatedly promoting them, while at the same time claiming to be unbiased and fair. It is quite a shame that while “Critical Thinking” skills are drilled into kids heads today, they don’t encompass the true philosophical depth that those in times past have held and molded, and any attempt to critically think that questions the modern order is laughed upon, discarded, or worse yet, the thinker becomes the recipient of what liberals and left-wingers do best: derogatory name calling.

Fortunately for myself, I woke up. I asked the most important question that a man could ask today: “Why?” I began to study philosophy, sociology, history, economics, and different forms of government. I found people in the far reaches of the internet just like me. I watched their videos, listened to their podcasts, read their essays and blog posts. All the while, I continued to question more and more of the morals and customs of modern society and its so-called “progress”. Now it is time for me to do my part and spread the reactionary ideology. I can promise you that there is a better world, a better culture out there; all it takes to reach it is work, self-enlightenment, and a commitment to the cause.

There are a few rules which all people that comment must abide by:

  1. No vulgar or profane language
  2. Do not engage in personal attacks
  3. If you are going to argue a point, please cite your sources
  4. Keep your messages on topic for the particular discussion you are involved in

Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog as well as the reactionary ideology. This site should soon be up and running at full capacity, so make sure to check back often and follow it!
