Algis Budrys and the Question of Identity

Algis Budrys.

Lithuanian-American science fiction author Algis Budrys emphasized the question of identity, featured in his three major works: Who?Rogue Moon, and Michaelmas.

Read this.  What this summary doesn’t explicitly state about Rogue Moon is that the “matter-transmitter” makes the copies by scanning the person’s original body and coding the information – a process that completely destroys the original body (the copies are reconstituted from any available matter). Thus, there is a question of identity: Hawks insists that the copies are NOT the original, despite being biological duplicates and sharing the memories of the original.  And when Barker and Hawks (copies of the originals) both travel to the moon (via the “matter-transmitter”) and survive the artifact, Hawks insists that they can never go back to Earth, because their duplicates (also copies of the originals) are already there, living their own lives. This moon version of Hawks kills himself after stating this, by walking away and letting his air run out; the Earth version of Hawks continues his life (although he is a copy of the original Hawks, and bitterly cognizant of that fact; the Earth copy of Barker, by contrast, could care less).  For a somewhat similar theme, see this Outer Limits episode.

The question of identity in Who? Is obvious and at one point, when nothing is left to be done, Rogers asks the man in question point-blank: “Martino, are you Martino?” The answer he gets back is a simple “no” – even though (spoiler alert!) we find out at the end that it really is Martino. After everything that has happened to him, his sense of self, his identity, has been erased.

In Michaelmas – which unfortunately contains snide attacks against “xenophobic populism” – the question of identity is also considered, as it involves copying individuals as well.

Issues of identity are of course of interest to us, so these works may be useful reading. Indeed, regardless of Budrys’ politics, his work clearly suggests that identity – sense of self – depends upon the authenticity and integrity of physical being. That is certainly compatible with a racialist worldview; hence, these works are of value from that perspective.

Burr, Wild Bunch, Vance

Odds and ends.

Recommended reading.

I’m no fan of Burr’s proto-SJW views – including and particularly his ridiculously positive views about women – but he nevertheless was the most Faustian of the Founding Fathers.If you read the book, you’ll also see he had “big balls,” as the phrase goes.  His downfall was due to two facts – one, that all his energies went to his own personal self-aggrandizement with no underlying greater objective; and, two, he wasn’t very detail-oriented. or realistic about the motivations and limitations of others.

Nevertheless, the type of dynamism of this Faustian and ambitious individual is something we could use in the “movement” today if – and only if – it is put into the service of higher goals (racial interests) and not purely selfish objectives, and if Burr’s other flaws also did not manifest in whatever modern heir he would have among racial activists.

If the White race is doomed, then at least let us go out like this.

“They struggle to defy their destinies” – the essence of Jack Vance summarized in 54 seconds here.

Of course, Mazirian the Magician is only one tale of several that make up The Dying Earth, the latter being the more modern title for the collection of short stories (Spoiler alert below*).  But the Type Is prefer hobbit holes, orcs, and “the battle for Middle Earth.” There really should be a study done on preferences regarding sci-fi/fantasy – is it personal psychology, ideology (e.g., Traditionalism vs. Futurism), or ethnoracial (e.g., Nords vs. Meds)?

*Spoiler alert!   The highwayman doesn’t end well, the hopeless quest does end reasonably well, the “lovers” (who are at the time not “lovers” at all but presumably become so after the story ends) end up victorious, and the woman is cured of her curse.

PCA, Sea Turtles, Vance and Wolfe

In der news.

Some of the points made here are supported by the West Eurasian PCA here.  In particular, I refer to the relative closeness of Ashkenazi Jews to some Southern European groups being due to not only the Southern European admixture in the Ashkenazi genepool but also the Ashkenazim’s Eastern European admixture, which “pulls” those Jews closer to Europeans than where they would have been were they simply a Middle Eastern-Southern European mix.

Most of the non-Ashkenazi Jews pictured in the PCA are closer to non-Jewish Middle Eastern populations than are the Ashkenazim, since those other Jewish types not only derive a fraction of their ancestry from those other (non-European) host peoples but they lack that minority portion of Eastern European admixture that “pulls”  the Ashkenazim in the direction of the upper left. Turkish Jews are relatively close to the Ashkenazim but “pulled” a bit more toward the upper right, where Turks are. Note the upper right location of the Iranian samples, away from any Europeans, a fact for those who believe there is little difference between Iranians and Europeans.

Vicious Chinatrix stomps on sea turtle nest.  Colored is as colored does.  If a Negro did this, the HBDers would be hyperventilating over “low IQ violent African behavior,” but if a Holy Oriental – and a female to boot – does it, move on, move on, there’s nothing to see here.

The Jack Vance channel. Scifi/fantasy for Type IIs.  As is the work of Gene Wolfe.  Type Is can keep their Tolkien. But this Type I has a different opinion.

The Strong Horse is Not My Little Pony

It’s all connected.

When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, they will naturally want to side with the strong horse. When people of the world look upon the confusion and atheism of the West, they see that Islam is the strong horse.

And what does White nationalism have to offer?  Guess what: The Strong Horse is not My Little Pony.  How is it possible for  White nationalist “leaders” to be so blind, deaf, and dumb to image?

WN 2.0: Effeminacy, childishness, weakness, silliness.  

Could it be that young White men with fundamentally healthy instincts are frustrated because “leaders” are promoting Bronyism and endorsing non-White liberal Presidential candidates?  Can we “understand” these shootings by pointing out that “movement leaders” have completely failed in every way possible, even to the point of becoming cringeworthy embarrassments?  Yang Gang!  Tulsi Coconut!  My Little Pony!  Pepe!  Kek!

Do the folks shown here support The Yang Gang?  We went from Caesar, Charlemagne Napoleon, and the Waffen SS to that.  That should be condemned, not encouraged.

The absolute worst aspects of WN 1.0 are infinitely superior to anything WN 2.0 has to offer.  Given the choice between James Mason foaming at the mouth over Charles Manson or Buttercup Dew mincing around over cartoon ponies, I’ll take the former, thank you very much.

Back to the San Diego shooting.  Great timing numbnut…right after the Congressional hearing.  Could it be any worse? I mean, the confluence of Type I Nutzism and affirmative action does wonders for the “movement.”  Let’s have some more posts about how brain structure proves the superiority of particular ethnies, said superiority no doubt well represented in “movement” “activism.”  But as bad as these people are, the “leaders” are worse. The more sensitive members of the rank-and-file likely look upon Der Movement and see nothing but a barren wasteland of hopeless despair, populated by freaks, weirdos, perverts, Bronies, incompetents, fetishists, and grifters.  So, in response, these young men have as their role models are racialist mass murderers.  Wonderful.  So much winning!

We need to give activists another choice than that between being a “shoot-‘em-up” Nutzi or being an effeminate Brony with more estrogen that a slumber party of teen-aged girls.

Note also the fellow’s disgust with The God Emperor – demonstrating that a disgust with “leadership” (in that case, Presidential) is fueling these episodes.  Another “movement” fail – obsessing over the fat fraud Trump instead of building a real infrastructure.  

These young men should be taking the advice I have been giving for young (and all) activists – take care of yourselves first, get an education, build your career, make money, save, if you want a family than go in that direction – build a real life.  Do not sacrifice yourself for a grifter-freak “movement” or even for “the race” – a mewling omega race of weaklings and losers – unless you can accomplish something that will definitively and significantly enhance your genetic interests.  This fellow Earnest should have finished his education, built his career, saved his money, and then participated in activism in a sane and sustainable fashion. But, alas, misled and let down by “leaders” and in a state of desperation, these types lash out.

How’s that Arctic Alliance coming along, Derbyshire?  That is in my opinion indirectly connected to the shooting as well. Racialists in the rank-and-file are likely disenchanted by rice burners and mustard dippers being spokesmen for Der Movement, and maybe they are also tired of all the money donated being flushed down the toilet, so folks can gamble, watch movies, and sit comfortably on lawn chairs.

On the other hand, I see this as probably being a net positive, even if it was a bit silly and juvenile – non-violent protest that shows the SJWs that their “safe spaces” may not be so safe from dissident opinions after all.

What has happened as a result of Trump’s election is a good example of how difficult it will be to put through a pro-White policy to address the demographic disaster that is unfolding even if a nationalist-sounding politician is elected. From the very beginning of Trump’s administration, he has been beset with investigations and lawsuits, and there has been a torrent of hatred and invective directed at him in the media and on social media like Twitter and Facebook. Comparisons of Trump with Hitler and Nazism have been routine, during the campaign and since he became president. This is unprecedented in American history. Trump has been unable to get any good immigration-related legislation through Congress because of unanimous Democrat opposition and significant opposition from Republicans. And the courts have routinely ruled against him in the many jurisdictions with liberal judges.

But, hey, our victory is just around the corner.  No, wait, in 50 years.  No, wait, we have 200 years.  Well, whatever. Just send in dem dere “D’Nations!”

Then you wonder why folks get frustrated and do stupid things?  And on cue:

What is more useful: envisioning the creation of white homelands as being easy or hard? Because the harder it seems, the fewer people who will consider it possible or desirable.

Let’s give people unrealistic expectations, let’s have the typical “victory euphoria” (even for future victories) – yes, as long as you all send in the “D’Nations.” Remember, things objectively are absolutely terrible, but if you send in money, you’ll be living in the Golden Age today!  Better Gold than Tungsten, eh?

On other notes – 

Jack Vance:

A man desiring a girl will set upon her and beat her black and blue. No one would think to interfere. If the girl approves, she comes the same way again. When he rushes forth to pummel her, she throws herself on his mercy.

Jack Vance was, apparently, not a beta male, a white knighter, or a potential Brony.

Gene Wolfe is Dead and Other News

In der news.

Gene Wolfe is dead.  Also see this. 

Another Jack Vance phrase to describe female behavior – “erotic provocations.”  A female Vance character describing the behavior of her sister toward a male character – “…beguiling and provoking, teasing and tormenting.” One can look for clues in Vance’s background for his accurate portrayal of the female “contribution” to societal stability.

Vance and Wolfe are authors suitable for Type IIs. Tolkien, in contrast, is a Type I-style author.

Both Wolfe and Vance should be of interest to a “movement” allegedly interested in Faye’s “Archaeo-Futurism.” Men’s rights advocates and others on the Right can find much richness and nuance in the work of Wolfe and Vance.

Wolfe made a good point about cowardice vs. bravery.  According to Wolfe, the only real difference is that the coward fears the event before it happens, while the brave man feels fear after. So, the coward spends time dreading and obsessing about, say, combat, and becomes so fearful in advance that he shirks his responsibility when the time comes, while the brave man just acts without thinking about it, and, if he survives, becomes fearful about what he did after. Wolfe was a Korean War veteran, so he knew a thing or two about this subject.

A comment for Durocher from his own thread, emphasis added:

“Individual and ethnic amour-propre is a powerful motivator in the face of emotionally hurtful facts and hypotheses”

That was you and an Uraloid Anon Finn who don’t understand or lie about the ancient DNA. It’s also telling that you only respond with “interesting comment” to comments that stroke your ego. As if other facts are emotionally hurtful. That’s the problem people have with white nationalist liars like you and your cohort, not the actual science which has already destroyed many of your myths incidentally.

Btw, so others can check the dishonesty at play here:

“Western hunter gatherer natives that had a brain volume 1600 ccc , yamnaya or aryan around 1450ccc and anatolian farmers around 1300ccc”

Let’s accept those numbers. This means that the difference between WHG and Yamnaya was the same as between Yamnaya and Anatolian farmers. But guess which two populations contributed the most ancestry to all modern Europeans? But I suppose the Yamnayans didn’t “damagin permanently our genepool (sic)”.

And of course, our Uraloid supremacist has to come up with more ad-hoc reasoning to explain the Lithuanians, close to the biggest hunter-gatherer ancestry in Europe, or the Ukrainians: “If you exclude the slavs that were subjected to a different civilizational process”

Ah but the “elven Finns” weren’t subject to different civilizational process, they are “Fennoscandians” after all. It’s as if you arrive at the exact conclusion you already had in mind via a roundabout process innit? Even though Balts and Slavs have the most hunter-gatherer on average, they were subject to a “different civilizational process”. Meanwhile Western Europeans who have more Anatolian and less steppe and WHG on average got their civilizational prowess via some other ad-hoc process we’ll come up with on the spot. Maybe it’s “outbreeding” or one of the thousand ad-hoc explanations the HBDsphere has come up with huh?

Ron Unz:  Read this.

Roissy gets it right for once:

Ron Unz lies a lot in an article about the Alt-Right which he penned last year but reposted yesterday. I think the strawman-per-word ratio in his id-shaped rant is higher than anything I’ve read outside of a feminist tumblrrhea screed.

His main contention is that the “alt-right” are being deplatformed and de-personed because representatives (whoever they are) exaggerate the criminal threat of latino immigration, and the Soylicunt Valley nerdos who have been thrust into the role of Speech Police can’t tolerate the lies.

This is an utter inversion of the reality, which is that the Big Tech Poindexters can’t tolerate the truths which dissident outposts daily level against the corrupt Globohomo worldview and nation-dissolving agenda.

Never forget the “White nationalists” who are sell-outs to Unz, betraying their race for thirty pieces of silver.  We should be talking more about the Clueless Judas rather than the Yang Gang.

He doesn’t understand why Trump’s government persecutes militias guarding the border. Answer – Trump is a radical Far-Left SJW, seething with raw hatred toward White America.

Alt Right priapisms arise:

Chinese Nationalist Maiden
The problem for the West is that the USA might sooner or later be at war with the world’s prime Communist superpower, Red China. The West cannot afford to lose that war if it ever comes to pass, and neither can the West afford to lose the war over the control of the Western borders. Immigration needs to be brought back under the control of sound racial-demographic policy, and potential rivals such as Red China should not be made more powerful by Western companies..

That’s great.  Where do YOU live?  If it is in a Western country, please leave.  Or else you’re nothing but a vile hypocrite.

In Trump We Trust!  E Pluribus Awesome!

The testers:

…the DTC genetic testing company FamilyTreeDNA reached an agreement with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to grant the agency access to FamilyTreeDNA’s database of more than 1 million genetic records. At present, DTC genetic testing companies 23andMe and Ancestry still require court orders or valid search warrants for unsolicited third-party or law enforcement access to their genetic data records.

Listen to this.  I give Spencer credit for reaching out to the police and for considering legal action about that TV show clip.

The overall video had a good message, but there is a fundamental flaw there.  Unlike the White fear of Black mass violence, no one is really frightened of White nationalists, or any type of Whites whatsoever.  All the recent nonsense, the congressional hearing, the media stories, the statements – that’s all an excuse for censorship. They fear WN ideas (such as they are – that shows how memetically weak the Left really is), but not WNs themselves.  There is no real credible threat, outside of lone wolves and that’s nothing in the broader scheme of things.  The fear of the 1960s was of mass Black insurrection, riots and so forth. The only things White men today would riot for is more access to East Asian women and more Negro football on TV.

Yes, well, look Fat Don, since you’ve completely abandoned your White working class base, can you be surprised that others are targeting them?  Beware the Yang Gang!

The anti-vaxxers claim that the decrease in measles from, say, the 50’s to the 80s, was due to “better hygiene” and had nothing to do with vaccination.  What happened?  Did we start wallowing in filth?  Interesting, isn’t it, that – a coincidence, no doubt! – the spike in measles has occurred concomitant with the retards not vaccinating their children.

Sallis right again!  See title here.  See reality here.

Der Movement marches on:

I have for some time believed that it was Aryans who founded the Egyptian civilization after migrating from the Hyperborean center, due to the spirituality seeming to be quite Aryan. This also with the combination of some Pharaohs being depicted as blond-haired and blue-eyed and after opening tombs, they found that a Pharaoh even had red hair if I recall correctly. The question is: Is ancient Egyptian spirituality of an Aryan character, and if so, how could that be, if the Egyptians were of a non-Aryan stock?

Anyone who thinks that the findings of genetic archaeology will end “movement” fetishism is deluded.  When you are dealing with blind religious faith, facts are irrelevant.  If a careful genetic study proved without a shadow of a doubt that the Spartans were Nigerian, the Nutzis would crow; “Arthur Kemp was right!”

Not Made For Me

Boycott Captain Menstrual and Star Trek Yeastbucket.

Not made for me – perhaps the best video I’ve seen exposing the destruction of superhero/sci-fi entertainment by SJW nonsense.

I guess Gaslighting Greg will tell us these are all up-and-coming Joan of Arcs, who must be – must be! – immune from any and all criticism.

Boycott, boycott, boycott.

Better late than never, Annie.  Question for the readership: Is it more important to realize this about Trump now, after he’s wrecked everything for the past two years, or to have realized this before he was elected, realized all of this during the campaign?

The Retard Emperor.  Donald Downs Trump, aka Donnie Triple 21.

It’s Der Trumpening!

As much as I despise Trump, what McCabe and his fellows did – how is that not an indictable offense?  

It’s dat dere capitalism!  As the Alt Wrong would say: “Sweet business deals.”

Thursday News

In der news.

Trump speaks out!  In defense of Jews and Israel of course.

His White Gentile base?  They can all go to hell, I suppose.  Right, Antifa Don Trump?

Trump is so far to the left, he can comfortably hobnob with his Jewish buddies Marx and Trotsky on the political spectrum.

Good for Ethan.  Of course, there’s a “God Emperor” link here.

He said his mother was influenced by the debunked and disgraced former British doctor, Andrew Wakefield, who in the 1990s claimed there was a possible link between the MMR vaccine and childhood developmental regression and autism. The paper he co-authored was removed by The Lancet and he was found guilty of professional misconduct after a series of media exposes led to formal investigations. 

Mr Wakefield has since remade himself in the US, where Donald Trump is among those who believe there is a link between vaccines and autism, despite the conclusions of this own government’s scientists. Mr Wakefield was among four leading anti-vaccination campaigners who met the Republican candidate at a 2016 fundraiser in Florida shortly before the election.

Is Trump the worst human being on Earth?  The Retard Emperor.

The long term fear is that right wing populism “shot its bolt” with Trump for the foreseeable future.  All the pent up anger, frustration, and energy that led to Trump’s 2016 electoral victory may be dissipated in defeat, disillusionment, and despair.  Far from being “the last chance for White America,” Trump may go down in history as the gravedigger of White America.  MAGA!  Pepe!  Kek!

Working hard…or hardly working?

Asians don’t like to hear the truth – even when it is spoken by one of their own. “Learn from western peers” – you got that right.  Copy and adapt – it’s the Asian way!  But “think independently?”  He’s going to have a long wait – doesn’t he know better?

More on Jack Vance.

I have to admit that Cugel is up there as one of the most entertaining characters I’ve encountered in literature; an unintentionally hilarious rogue, fancying himself a brilliant, beautiful cavalier with a wit like a razor, when in fact he is a long-faced cutpurse, imposter, murderer and rapist; to say the least he is a man of questionable ethics and perverse cunning.

An alpha male!  The dark triad!

Iucounu’s description: Fianosther pointed across the way to a man wearing garments of black. This man was small, yellow of skin, bald as a stone. His eyes resembled knots in a plank; his mouth was wide and curved in a grin of chronic mirth. 

Here’s my take on Iucounu, holding Firx, the extraterrestrial creature in his sweaty palms. I wanted to have him look kind of harmless and even dumb, as his mode of conversation brings to mind an absentminded professor. It may well be this is simply a show, but I felt that charade could be also reflected in his appearance. As a powerful wizard, he has lost much of the sense a mortal could make of him. I imagine his skin tone is the result of one too many alchemical brew ingested.

Or maybe his skin tone and his knot-like eyes suggest East Asian ancestry?

Wrong, wrong, they’re always wrong.  Counter-Currents: “Fenek Solère on the Englishness of Kate Bush”

Kate Bush, emphasis added:

Bush was born in Bexleyheath, Kent,[18] to an English medical doctor, Robert Bush (1920–2008), and an Irish mother, Hannah Daly (1918–1992).[19].  She was raised as a Roman Catholic…“I was a Roman Catholic and brought up in Roman Catholic schools”…In 2019, Bush published a statement on her website saying she had been quoted out of context and did not support the Conservative Party. She wrote: “My response to the interviewer was not meant to be political but rather was in the defence of women in power … I said that we had a woman in charge of our country, and that I felt it was a good thing to have women in power … it could make it seem like I am a Tory supporter which I want to make clear I am not.

Too bad Kate Bush didn’t mate with Shakin’ Stevens – they could have produced a Marxist leprechaun.
