I think the basis of the left is a desire to increase overall happiness and protect those who are unjustly targeted. Overall, the ideology seems to have been formed around the idea of striving to reduce harm and therefore suffering of the lower and middle classes, who are at risk the most from this.

What does the right have at this point? What is its noble goal? Because I'm genuinely at a loss. What can the right provide for the modern world? Not baiting at all, genuinely would love a discussion on this and I know this shit would be impossible on /pol/ so please just fucking don't.

American and European leftist ideology typically requires extreme reliance on government to achieve it's ends, as well as major expenditures which are difficult to accommodate for in Western society, which are typically capitalist leaning. Right wing ideology promotes, or used to promote, freedom from government and liberty to do as one likes without interference (within reason).

Have you seen how many rightists join it to deride whole classes of people they claim are wronging them (usually indirectly, by wronging their entire social class in the aggregate)? As for sexual perversions, it wasn't true as much before, but in the 2010s young anonymous rightists tend to express their fetishes practically with pride.

The basic paradox of current rightism is that society is undoubtedly run by people who lean left on most questions(monarchy, patriarchy, religion, eugenics(this one is complicated because eugenics have been taken up by progressives in the past), etc., the one big right wing establishment in power is capitalism, and it is mitigated by the welfare state and there are obviously still desires to attempt communism again.) so being right wing is going against authority which is exactly what you're not supposed to do as a rightist. Obviously they want someone else to be in power instead of Progressives, at least the coherent rightists, but a lot of these guys are in fact just resentful proles who see a state that doesn't care about them and want to rebel against it, making them basically leftwing in action, even if they signal allegiance to symbols associated with the right, and would want to institute more right wing laws should they gain power.

This has the effect that whenever Progressives do gain power they tend to become "right wing" about certain issues(the issues that lend them their power). For example the way they view Academia is precisely the way that old conservatives used to view the church, you don't question what the priests say. A similar feeling exists in what is allowed to be 'legitimate' press.

This means that the particular groups that are generally right or left rapidly switch in reality when one gains or loses power. An even more obvious example is Stalin, who became almost a monarch and regressed on many progressive issues such as homosexuality and the family, all to keep running the great Leftist experiment of communism, though even that was hilariously hierarchically structured, and not ground up in any meaningful sense.

There are two obvious opposite poles though, a kind of militarized, divine-right monarchy, with patriarchy, extremely strict rules about crime, etc. and total anarcho-communism, some kind of novel way of raising children outside the old structures, feminism, antiracism, etc. These societies never actually exist, but they are kind platonic ideals of the two forces of right and left, forces which in reality are used by both sides in their attempts to create something slightly more approximating their ideal.

>> No.13451404

>>13451349
I can relate with this exactly. My observations are somewhat limited, so I'm unsure if the issue is specifically isolated to leftism or just political fanaticism as a whole. Regardless, I think progressivism is a better descriptor than simply leftism.

I think you're right about the left and that their political philosophy is generally more admirable.

The right tends to emphasise individualism and personal responsibility which is why they get pissed about taxes, big government, and people not pulling their weight. The left don't like to admit it but some amount of pulling oneself up by one's bootstraps is possible. Self determination is possible despite negative circumstances so the right think it's cucky to advocate social justice rather than just clawing your way up.

First of all as a grounding assumption you should realize there are no universal right/left coordinates that obtain at all times. What constitutes right or left is historically contingent.

The contemporary left survives only in affluent developed countries and is a byproduct of abundance. Its willingness to extend sympathies to untold masses of strangers in the political-abstract betrays a hypocritical disregard for those suffering with poverty within their own borders. The left benefits from all the nation building and statecraft of more conservative tendencies, and yet acts in defiance of it in its pursuit its desire to help all.

Furthermore, the left masks its moral just causes in the decayed identity politics culture, which is as deeply selfish as any conservative billionaire acting reflexively to protect his interests. The modern left is an unintelligible and confused jumble of weakly glued together values and assumptions, with little practical planning or rational judiciousness.

Conservatism in contrast operates from a distrust of the unknown. It operates from caution, in full sober awareness of how bad things can get if you overplay your cards. The conservative mindset respects boundaries and clear, stable traditional identities.

The right is undergoing a similar bout of disturbance, and yet it results in more frightening and violent forms, because it stems from what is essentially fear of human nature.

In the financial dimension the right is a whole different story, but it basically comes down to respecting the nation as the macro-level unit of economics, that therefore requires prudent governance to maintain prosperity which could easily be lost.

Modern liberals take so much for granted, trusting in overabundance in such a way that it will never end and can be given away accordingly. The conservative takes the opposite view, seeing everything as fragile and in want of protection and careful stewardship if it is to keep from unraveling.

Except in allowing their nation's manufacturing bases to disintegrate and privatising every industry willy-nilly for the sake of the "free market", as well as promoting wanton economic growth and unparalleled environmental devastation.

Words like "happiness" and "justice" are so loaded, they are pointless. 200 years ago, "justice" meant something entirely different. It meant something like "proper application of the law", rather than modern definition, which is closer to "morally proper result".

And "happiness" is very subjective. The Amish are apparently quite happy, despite having their women/children systematically "oppressed".

As others have mentioned, left and right are far from perfect categories, but the reality is that a line has been drawn (in the anglosphere at least) in popular discourse employing those terms to designate people who hold equality as there prime value and those who hold nearly anything else to be their prime value. These definitions are hardly exhaustive and don't account for people's motivations for adopting particular stances and how those may affect their real world implementation. I prefer to discuss a particular ideology, concept, tradition, school of thought etc rather than arguing over vague and competing super-categories.

The problem with modern leftism, in Britain at least, is that it's tied itself to a number of other causes which are repulsive, e.g. modern feminism, mass immigration, quota-led diversity hiring, anti-white hostility, etc.

The left admits it. The thing is the right wing analysis from that perspective is always absolutely retarded. Take say tuition free state university. My argument for it is that it removes financial barriers and makes university entry more merit based, since you still have to compete to get in. We all agree that what determines where you end up in life ideally ought to be based on your hardwork and talent. This is good for the individual but also good for society. The right wing retort?
Well, uh, you could always just accept the debt you'll get. Or you could try to get a good enough paying job to work through university. Or you could work even harder and get a scholarship. They of course ignore the pragmatic, statistical implications of these ideas. People who have merit but not wealth will be deterred from taking debt. People who have to work their way up the work place ladder will start university later with less malleable brains and will be at a disadvantage from people who don't need to work, for that and also because they have less hours to study. If you make it so the only way to get financial support are scholarships, you still aren't equalizing opportunity, as the financially better off don't have to be as exceptional to compete with others for a spot in a school.
Of course the right wing thought process just goes back to, "BUT it IS POSSIBLE to make it without state assistance." Well no shit Sherlock. And it's always possible to defend your property and life on your own, but no one thinks of you as a weak free loader for calling the cops if your house is being robbed.

Moldbug's idea of "the Cathedral" is a recurring theme; it is a "distributed conspiracy", one that treats feminism, democracy, and other "progressive" causes, and the general world view of educated Westerners, as the current world's version of an established church:[40]

And the left is the party of the educational organs, at whose head is the press and universities. This is our 20th-century version of the established church. Here at UR, we sometimes call it the Cathedral — although it is essential to note that, unlike an ordinary organization, it has no central administrator. No, this will not make it easier to deal with.

Even if there's something like this that you could be persuaded to see, it's hard to imagine a proper conspiracy without conspirators. What Moldbug describes looks more like a culture: a broadly shared set of associated social values embodied in shared institutions, symbols, and practices. If you are reading this, you probably live there. This is what he's against.

The Cathedral is similar to Guy Debord'sWikipedia's W.svg "society of the Spectacle", except that instead of the Spectacle being created by the media in the service of capitalism, Moldbug believes the Cathedral is a conspiracy run by academia.

Transhumanism?!
One of these ideas is not like the others. This one comes from neoreaction's links to the Bay Area transhumanist subculture. This is why neoreactionaries showed up on LessWrong.

There are neoreactionaries who will attempt to reconcile transhumanism and singularitarianism with taking the rest of society back several hundred years, particularly Michael Anissimov;[41] the attempts are certainly creative, at least.[42]

Despite Yudkowsky rejecting neoreaction, MIRI's goal closely resembles the neoreactionary goal: a single sovereign Friendly artificial intelligence, ruling human space for all time for the good of all.[43]

In Moldbug's proposal — a world divided up into libertarian anarcho-monarchies, informed by pickup-artist patter (the world made Gor!Wikipedia's W.svg), among many little autonomous princedoms governed by kings, aristocrats, or dictators — you may have trouble placing bets about how long the Internet would hold up. If 300 baud was good enough for Jesus Christ...

I used it because I'm more familiar with American history because I myself am American. It's worth noting that being European means absolutely nothing when those guys hated each others guts. They didn't have the same conception of race and ethnicity that we do today.

Assimilating is pretty easy if the resources are there desu. It goes faster if there's state support behind it. I went to school in a very diverse area. Lots of kids of parents that had recently immigrated and gave birth here. We were all pretty fucking Americanized, and a lot of us struggled to speak our parents natives tongues.
So yeh, send the parents to night school to learn English. Send the kids to public school. Assimilation achieved.

What is termed the "right" wants races secure and comprehended within a homeland. In this world Europeans are becoming increasingly insecure as their nation states are being planted with racial enemies, who will band together to destroy them. One can see this on the grand scale in voting patterns by demographic in the US on the grand scale, and in the micro scale you merely have to go to any "diverse" school and see how children almost automatically stick together by race. For an anecdote: it was almost comical when I was in school in my European country, how the Asians would stick together from their respective countries, the blacks generally as a bloc. Now you might say, "but anon, those are just kids with primitive little kid minds, surely when they grow older they will associate more broadly, indeed they will have to due to their variegated career choices", NO! What makes you ignorant people think that if we adopt America's multiplicity of races and abolish our nations, we won't also be adopting racial voting, with the remaining Europeans gravitating increasingly to a "white" party that espouses their racial interest, even if only taciturnly and never openly?
"But anon," you say again, droll and retarded as you were before, "why should I care if these people vote as a bloc? It's not as though their policies will manifest in a direct confrontation to my wellbeing with say, genocide", well I'd say to yourself, enjoy getting your wig split by manic machete niggers, you onions chugging ape, and I will laugh in the pages of history if the ugly mulatto monks who survive the impending dark ages deign to scribble anything for posterity on cardboard parchment by the light of a candle in a can of Heinz beans.

Most whites benefit from cheap immigrant labor in some way, at least short term.
Let's not pretend it's all so simple, as if whites dindu nuffin and are just being exploited by some external force.
They're doing it to themselves, with their retarded belief in endless economic growth and short term profits and whining over "omg an aging population" like it's the end of the world and like people haven't been through much worse times throughout history.
It's a population that has become soft and unambitious. It's understandable, because once you meet the base needs (food, shelter...) your instincts tell you you can just chill and turn your brain off.

Immigrants are brought in explicitly to debase wages and inflate housing prices. Employers can't just pay their employees whatever they want and landlords can't just charge whatever they want for housing, they have to set their prices according to the market, and when the market is flooded by foreigners they can pay lower wages and charge more for housing.

No we absolutely do not. The white middle class has been absolutely gutted by mass migration and low wages. Mass migration ended the extremely long pattern of increases in wealth generation by generation, which ended with the Baby Boomers, and we've seen a general decrease in quality of life for whites since.

This situation is only somewhat stable because there is so much surplus wealth; if industries vital to this system start to falter even a little bit, the left will get really violent about making sure people with nothing to offer, that society never wanted to include in the first place, get what they need, taken from people at gunpoint.

Because immigrants are a benefit to the economy. The only downside is the fact that they, as you say, drive down wages; but I propose to remedy this by taxing corporations and raising the minimum wage. In America there's a class called the "working poor" -- people who have jobs but are still below the poverty line because they don't get paid enough. That is just unacceptable. Sure, we can kick out all immigrants and destroy the economy in the process, or we can work towards a more progressive tax system which will guarantee a better life for the working classes.

>They didn't have the same conception of race and ethnicity that we do today.
We did.
The japanese noted how northern peoples loathed to marry outside their own race and there are very obvious racial writings dating back to kushite egypt and forward.

They take out way way more tax dollars than they pay in, leading to infrastructure and services not being properly maintained because we just imported half a million literal bloodsuckers.

That's just not true. For example, the Roman's view of race was that Roman = good and non-roman = bad. There were quite a lot of black people who were Romans and they were seen as superior to non-romans.

That's not true. It is economical consensus that immigration is good for the economy. Illegal immigrants don't pay taxes, yes, but that's because they're illegal. If they were given citizenship then they would have to pay taxes.

The romans had civil wars over giving other romans on the italian peninsula full citizenship, something tertiary peoples with only latin rights never managed before the "any legionary gets to be a citizen " and subsequent fall of west Rome.

>Roman writers described people with physical characteristics of sub-Saharan Africans as "Aethiopes", but the term carried no social implications.[6] There was no such thing as a black community; immigrants from south of the Sahara were few and from disparate ethnic communities. The immigrants would have been separated from each other in households of white people, and if they had descendants these would have blended within very few generations into the local population.[6] While slavery was a deeply-stigmatized social status, the great majority of slaves were from European and Mediterranean populations; inherited physical characteristics were not relevant to slave status.[6] Black people were not excluded from any profession, and there was usually no stigma or bias against mixed race relationships in Antiquity.[7]
