Message from Alex Kolchak - NY in Nice Respectable People Group #general

@Flint A lot of California newspapers poke fun at how the Republican Party is virtually extinct in this state. What they fail to realize is that if all the white conservatives packed up their bags and left, California would collapse within a few years.

ugh I guess I'll just have to redecorate all the neighboring towns again 😄

2018-11-14 02:10:08 UTC  

@Alex Kolchak - NY you hit alot of the same cultural references I do in this movement.

2018-11-14 02:10:34 UTC  

You read alot of reactionary lit?

2018-11-14 02:10:39 UTC  

oh

2018-11-14 02:10:48 UTC  

@Nemets Do you have any data on that?

2018-11-14 02:11:02 UTC  

You've mentioned NRX stuff Talib, other things that I can't recall at the moment

2018-11-14 02:11:31 UTC  

I dabble. I read Social Matter and Jacobite when I can, I like Myth20c, etc

wouldn't say I'm well-versed by any means

2018-11-14 02:14:09 UTC  

also learned a lot from reading Christopher Lasch and James Burnham, who aren't NRx but touched on a few of the themes well before NRx was a thing

2018-11-14 02:15:26 UTC  

Interesting.

2018-11-14 02:15:29 UTC  

I should check it out

2018-11-14 02:15:40 UTC  

Anything you might recommend?

2018-11-14 02:15:59 UTC  

"The Culture of Narcissism" by Lasch

very famous book on the American mindset in the 1970s

2018-11-14 02:16:00 UTC  

@Nemets I'm not sure if white people in California can be persuaded to vote Republican.

2018-11-14 02:16:07 UTC  

which was very prescient in my opinion

NRx, eh? I like monarchism ironically. It is the least threatening of the LARPs, and therefore easiest to indulge in, and also the least fruitful. Beats MMOs I guess.

2018-11-14 02:16:50 UTC  

yeet

2018-11-14 02:16:51 UTC  

and then Burnham's "The Managerial Revolution"

@Wood-Ape - OK/MN It's not a fully fleshed out ideology, or a complete worldview in my mind.

2018-11-14 02:17:59 UTC  

the general ideas and some especially some of the speakers are rather profound.

2018-11-14 02:18:14 UTC  

~~speakers~~ * thinkers

2018-11-14 02:18:17 UTC  

@Papa Pizzagate True. Japan and Ireland and Spain and India all had monarchs bit radically different systems.

2018-11-14 02:18:26 UTC  

@Nemets We can only hope.

2018-11-14 02:18:51 UTC  

I see your strikethrough

2018-11-14 02:20:31 UTC  

I cited Social Matter in an essay about Culture of Narcissism and got a "this is interesting" from my liberal (but very smart) history professor

the fire rises

2018-11-14 02:21:02 UTC  

I'll check it out. I'd heard the name before, but never read it myself.

2018-11-14 02:21:36 UTC  

Anytime I come across an idea/book/person 3 times organically, I kinda feel obliged to take a deeper look

2018-11-14 02:22:01 UTC  

you may not be blown away by the insights seeing as it's been 40 years, but I'd say it's still valuable

2018-11-14 02:23:11 UTC  

also that's a pretty good rule of thumb

2018-11-14 02:35:42 UTC  

she got redpilled

2018-11-14 02:41:24 UTC  

There is a picture of my hometown at that museum.

2018-11-14 02:41:48 UTC  

The food court there is overpriced but good. (sorry for pulling the "muh food")

who are you guys maining?

2018-11-14 02:43:00 UTC  

I used to play Larry Elder in Brawl, but I think that I'm going to main Tim Pool.

2018-11-14 02:43:09 UTC  

I'll use the Allsup / Lana Lokteff mod.

2018-11-14 02:43:37 UTC  

Dennis Pager's final smash is OP. Needs a nerf
