You know you’ve been on the road for a while when you’ve got a 1-year supply of motel soap in a duffel bag.
They say people are the happiest at the age of 33. Ha ha, man.
One thing about European New Right philosophy that I think is right is that America is a completely separate culture and civilization from Europe even if it is a derivative in many ways. Interestingly, North American New Righters try to be more European culturally and intellectually even if many of them are Americans by birth and citizenship. That said, as the demographic change continues and whites become just another minority I don’t see how white nationalists will not become even weirder to most Americans or not be a right wing version of the creepy cross dressing homo plastic surgery freaks of leftist identity politics groups with their own bizarre subcultures and idiosyncrasies. I am just not convinced that a high brow, intellectual, racialist counter culture is going to achieve intellectual hegemony in US cultural institutions and then trickle down from the Alternative Bourgeoisie to the white masses to forma zee Eudapean Amedikin Etno Homozexuelle State.
In a “just sue” culture of in-group loyalties and grossly exaggerated damages, where brain-dead Americans don’t get the concept of HOT COFFEE, and chocolate eggs with toys inside are “racist” and “dangerous,” and feminists are literally beating up trannies while heteros are beating up homos followed by homos and trannies teaming up to beat up heteros politically, and somebody just got offended because I used the word “trannie;” the obvious reality of hatred and division is so deeply sown into the American soil that “we” will never “all just get along.”
Meanwhile, the big bankers, corporate managers, politicians, and lawyers are getting along just fine, making off with our bread and butter.
Editor’s note: I couldn’t find a non downloadable link to the Walter Kaufmann translation of Nietzsche’s “Why I Am So Wise” anywhere online, which is weird given that Nietzsche’s most well known quote belongs to this text. To my knowledge, this is the only digital reprint available online. I had to type it out myself. Enjoy.
“An all too long series of years signifies recovery for me; sadly, it also signifies relapse, breakdown, periods of decadence. After this, need I say that I am experienced in questions of decadence? I have spelled them forward and backward. Even that little art of apprehension and comprehension in general, those fingers for nuances, that psychology of “looking around the corner,” and whatever else is characteristic of me, was learned only then, and is the specific gift of that period during which everything in me became subtler–observation itself, as well as all organs of observation. Seeing from the standpoint of the sick toward healthier concepts and values and, conversely, looking again from the fullness and self assurance of a rich life down into the secret work of the instinct of decadence–in this I have had the longest training, my truest experience; if in anything, I became master in this.
