Here is my review of the poetry book “Beatnik Fascism” by Brandon Adamson. It leads into a discussion of ideological differences. I discuss how the one thing we should all agree on (I believe Richard Spencer discusses it here) is the question of racial equality. There is, I believe, already a healthy consensus on this. What we don’t all agree on, unfortunately however, is whether or not we should all be ridiculously tolerant of everything else, and whether or not we should be engaging in direct action activism right now. I’m willing to work with anybody who thinks that antiracism needs to end and that it’s us who’ve gotta end it.
Side note: I discuss my theory of why alt-righters are terrified of activism here.
I also slightly criticize the standard that we aspire to–the urgency with which some insist that we’re not embroiled in this struggle simply because we have nothing to lose. This is a big concern for people like Jared Taylor who have gone to such lengths to portray themselves as being many standard deviations–in IQ as well as socioeconomic status–to differentiate from the caricature-inspiring knucklehead skinheads historically used to deride and exclude anybody who entertains skepticism of the theory of racial equality. I think we are past this point. I do have nothing to lose, to be blunt, but this for me is a point of pride. (Solidarity!) This is why it is my gut-instinct to scoff at suit-and-tie events, though I’m willing to dress whatever part I’m to play.
Anyway, here are some of the highlights from Beatnik Fascism:
“Flight of the Senses”:
Putting on an invisible disguise / in an effort to evade untimely demise.” “from the cockpit of despair ‘away we go’ / with the empty air of being alone / the fare you pay to fly on your own.
“Teenage Armband” is about violent punishment for “noticing patterns of behavior”, and how ethnomasochistic indoctrination is not punishment enough.
“Every one of us, old and young / is a match that can strike anywhere and anytime.”
In “The Assimilated” he laments the fact that talented students are left with no option but to adapt downward to low-brow culture due to the fundamental necessity of being accepted even if it means in effect being tread on by one’s natural inferiors.
In “Bug Spray for Pesky Birthrates” he writes:
Mosquitos reproduce at exponentially / higher rates than humans. / We don’t outbreed them. / We invent bug spray.
There is also an ode to hate called “Hate for the Future”.
In “Taking Aim”:
We’ve got time left to kill / while we shop / and a couple of thrill pills / left to pop / we’re gonna feed the world / our darkest thoughts.
