* Hey Luke,
I’m a fellow outside-looking-in spectator of the alt-right. I really dig your live streams and the group of regulars you have on there. It’s cool to hear people discuss these topics that I’m (perhaps morbidly) fascinated by in an environment that isn’t bogged down with resentment and the need to signal edginess.
I thought it was funny that you are so respectful of Chris Cantwell, personally i think he’s a total bozo, but anyway, that brings me to my point: have you listened to the podcast that sparked the whole Nehlen-Vaughn doxxing incident? Episode 5 of the “RickyVaughnCast” titled Problems with White Identity, featuring the owner of MPCDot.com (quite an influential space for the MAGA end of the alt-right).
I’d say the podcast is worth listening to if you haven’t already. I’d go so far as to say, in terms of the questions raised, it’s second only to Nathan Cofnas’s paper in terms of its importance as a critique of the foundations of the WN-end of the AR. Cofnas devastated the “Jewish Conspiracy” basis for much of their positions and the ideas in the podcast: 1. whiteness not being a legitimate identity 2. loserdom and social anomie (similar to your recent discussion of online identity) drives people to radicalism, and extremist positions serve to isolate and radicalize them further, the parallels between jihadis and lunatic fringe alt-righters being obvious (compare that with your own conversion to Judaism and the non-artificial social benefits it brings). Naturally this enraged the WNs and the subsequent doxxing of Ricky Vaughn resulted in a even larger divide between the moderates and extremists.
* What ever your politics, you can’t deny that this channel, & these hangouts, are mind-bendingly unique. What the hell was this? It’s a political acid trip which makes “Alice in Wonderland” read like a rationalist’s physics book. What did I just hear?
Imagine trying to summarise or condense what this hangout was about to someone who’s never listened in before. OMG, it’d be impossible.
Tapping into this stream just leaves you reeling & spinning. It’s great. Utterly one of a kind. Well done Luke, guests, contributors & the chat!
* Luke if you haven’t already, you really need to discuss the differences of modern jewish orthodox vs black hat or velvet yarlmuke. The goyim need to be enlightened. Do you use an electric razor or regular for shaving. Also do you prerip your toilet paper for shabbos? What are your feelings about a shabbos goy? How hard is it to find a yellow fever shidduch? Discuss the cultural differences you noticed between orthodox and reform?
Luke you need to write a similar version of MacDonald’s book COC, but now you actually got the true story as an insider which mcdonald is simply the observer…you could call the book ” The Converso Goy”
But we found that such codes and philosophies did not save us, no matter how much we tried. We could wish to be moral, we could wish to be philosophically comforted, in fact, we could will these things with all our might, but the needed power wasn’t there. Our human resources, as marshalled by the will, were not sufficient; they failed utterly.
Lack of power, that was our dilemma. We had to find a power by which we could live, and it had to be a Power greater than ourselves. Obviously. But where and how were we to find this Power?
Well, that’s exactly what this book is about. Its main object is to enable you to find a Power greater than yourself which will solve your problem. That means we have written a book which we believe to be spiritual as well as moral.
