But if we are talking about reverting to savagery, we must be willing to become savages again. Today, this will not look like the nomadic hunter/gatherers of the Paleolithic, but shards […]

More Miscellany

I often hear protests devalued as “not achieving anything.” The prevalence of this opinion in radical circles is especially understandable, since the very nature of the radical is one that is already prepared to destroy everything.

Both are struggling to fight the decaying force of nihilism, toward which all knowledge systems are converging. But their struggle is helpless: soon you will see me hurl both into the black abyss.
