I find no pleasure in feeling right on this one. I've said for some time that the West is eating itself. Been called crazy and dismissed, but think this is the future. A new sort of dark age. Liberty will vanish in our time.

To get to the point: in 1960 we had a white men patriarchy. That was perfectly natural. Every society with a substantial proportion of white men will end up being ruled by a cabal of white men. Much of its biology; part of it is also social capital, good cultural practices accumulated since the 15th century. White men just run stuff better. They are natural high-status.

...The point again is, that you can’t run a tight, cohesive ruling class with white men. They don’t need to be loyal. They’ll do ok anyway. A much easier way to run an obedient, loyal party is to recruit everyone else. Women. Blacks. Gays. Muslims. Transexuals. Pedophiles. Those people may be very high performers individually, but in a natural society ruled by its core of high performers, i.e. a white patriarchy, they wouldn’t have very high status. So if you promise them high status for being loyal to you; you bet they’re gonna join your team. They have much to gain, little to lose. The Coalition of the Fringes, Sailer calls it. It’s worse than that really. It’s the coalition of everyone who would lose status the better society were run. It’s the coalition of the bad. Literal Kakistocracy.


Jesus. Did Wwen's account get hacked, or did I somehow miss that he's a literal white supremacist and misogynist all these years?

Honestly I clicked that link and instantly started worrying that I am going to show up on a list.

What is this? Literally.

It's a strange narrative.

Well, to be fair, this argument could be seen to be saying... just kidding, that stuff is total trash and pretty disgusting. Willing to be that would leave even Alex Jones saying "what the hell - this is some messed up crap."

I mostly just ignored that part. It could be rewritten to sound less edgy. I was sort of thinking he wrote it from how progressives seem to think white people think, since they do seem to think white people are the ruling class. Other things I read in the blog make me think he's not racist, but that's not really the point of the post I linked. I found the link to it from a comment in Quillette, so blame them! :D

The entire article is predicated on the assumption that all persons strive to create a society run by and for people the same gender and skin color as themselves, and don't consider other factors. He simply takes ridiculously high tier racism as a given, and if you don't the article blatantly contradicts itself constantly. This is literally a left wing caricature of a virulent racist that assumes deep down everyone is as racist as he is, except he's for real.
