The making of the Mil-Right

Caleb Q. Washington tells the tale of his intellectual development:
I learned that uncovering the truth often requires ignoring what you’re told and focusing on what you see; I became staunchly opposed to typical Salon/Slate variety feminists; I became more interested in developing myself as opposed to joining with others; I was first introduced to some of the figures of the hard right.

A few months later, Gamergate began. As Adam Baldwin sounded the horn to begin the biggest resistance so far to the unending march of progressivism through cultural institutions, I was caught up in the front lines of actually doing something to fight for culture. As we had successes and pushed back, it felt empowering.

Most importantly, it changed my expectations of what the conservative movement should be capable of accomplishing. It also disappointed me to be so completely ignored and dismissed by conservative writers and pundits. We were here pushing back against the very worst of progressivism, and they didn’t care.

This was followed by the Sad/Rabid Puppies campaigns which were another blow against progressives. Again silence from the conservatives I read.
Sooner or later, the Grants always replace the McClellans. Because if you don't fight, there is no need for you.

Lind proposes Will>Mind>Steel

Kratman has voiced some dissimilar opinions.

I propose it's more like Rock-Paper-Scissors.

Steel > Will examples = Hama Rules, Carthage, & WWII
Mind > Steel example Blitzkrieg & Revolution in Military Affairs
Will > Mind example Afghanistan & Vietnam

All contemporary discussion of winning WWII is about crushing the enemies Will to resist.

Afghanistan is a prime example, the US has the means to win there. Scrub every living human from the face of the land. We just don't have the Will to implement genocide.

Where this helps on the current Internet wars is it models your proposal to attack the SJW where they live and take away their access to organisations. Banishing them from the OSS community is SJW genocide.

From the reading I have done elsewhere, it isn't that people didn't want to support Gamergate, they didn't(and still don't) understand why it was so important. Nobody was explaining to them the why's, and how they could be applied to their own lives in the mainstream non-gamer world.

I tried my best to explain, but until a better writer than myself does that, people who would support gamergate and other things related will stay on the sidelines. They just don't understand why it applies to them too.

"A moderate is the worst of all: an untrusted ally and an unfeared enemy."

Moderates are valuable when there exists the possibility of a non violent solution to a conflict whose consequences are preferable to the likely consequences of a violent solution. The moderate's fatal temptation is to assume that this is always the case, even when it no longer is or never could have been. (The barbarian's fatal temptation is to assume this is *never* the case.)

Of course, what constitutes "preferable" is going to vary by the people involved. Some people have a lower threshold for what makes a victory Pyrrhic than others.

He kept forcing battle because even though statistically he was losing every battle he was forcing to south to lose a greater percentage of soldiers than they could replace. It's to his credit that he understood that situation and how to win it.

Blogger Sherwood family January 22, 2016 2:42 AM  

One of the things Caleb Q. Washington says in the post which I think is worth noting is that one of the things that pushed him to his current political views was the fact that his personal relationships with women were not working out as he wanted/anticipated and he sought answers, found the Red Pill Reddit, and changed his views on the fundamental premises that underlie modern attitudes to men, women, and the relationship between them. I think this is key because the mil-right/alt-right/hard-right is one of the places that recognize that the liberal experiment with feminism, equal rights between the sexes, unisex society, etc. are a disaster. Not just for men but for women, children, and civilization in general. Recognition of that fundamental dysfunction on a personal level i.e. "my relationship is not working" opens one's eyes to the causes of societal dysfunction with the corollary that if this extremely important part of the consensus view is wrong with attendant consequences what else might be wrong and what other sacred cows are ripe and ready for slaughter?

You are generalizing

Incorrect verbification. We are generaling. As in General Grant. Or Sherman, if need be.

Grant won by losing.

Actually, Grant won by realizing what mattered. Previous Union commanders worried about territory (magic dirt?). While they were trying to capture Richmond, Lee was out-flanking them and causing them all sorts of problems. Grant realized that Lee's army was the important thing. Destroy that, and the other problems would solve themselves. Richmond could wait.

I can also point out that Grant and Sherman were the generational equivalent of GenX - a Nomad generation: practical, willing to do what was needed to win, able to burn cities to the ground if need be, and ruthless even when it caused them personal anguish. Lincoln was from a generation that was a preview of the Boomers - a Prophet generation: self-absorbed crusaders willing to throw civilization into the fire over anything they see as unrighteous.

Our Boomer Lincolns inevitably call forth the GenX Grants and Shermans. And for what it's worth, Booth was a Nomad too.

Grant probably isn't a good model for this. He was a failure at life before the war. He'd graduated bottom of the class from West Point, was such a bad garrison officer they shipped him to California. While at a remote post he was still too much of a fuck up so the Army discharged him. He was working as a farrier and enlisted in the Union as a private.

It doesn't relate to our current situation because much of the population is slowly being brainwashed (through the education system and the media) to be unsympathetic to our cause.

While they're definitely trying that, its effectiveness is and always has been overrated.

It is more accurate to say the population is fairly quickly being replaced to be unsympathetic to our cause.

Americans really need to get out of the habit of discussing social and generational changes as if we were comparing a static population at two different points in time. The ever-growing imported population is more amenable to leftist plans, and the demographic makeup of the country today is drastically different than 30 years ago.

[Grant] graduated bottom of the class from West Point... was working as a farrier and enlisted in the Union as a private.

Do you just make shit up? Grant did not graduate at the bottom of his class. He graduated right about the middle of it, 21st of 39. He resigned his commission to avoid a court martial after he was allegedly found drunk while on duty. And he did not enlist as a private when the civil war started. He recruited and trained a regiment of volunteers in Illinois and was appointed a Colonel (typical rank for a regimental commander) by the Governor. With the support of the Illinois congressional delegation, Lincoln appointed him a Brigadier General of Volunteers. He didn't have a regular Army rank until after Vicksburg, when he was re-commissioned as a Major General.

I realize he may not be particularly well-liked in the South, but what's with the fabrications?

As for him not being a great model of peacetime success, there we agree. He was not stupid - his writing is quite intelligent and I'd guess he was at least +1SD above the average officer at the time. But he was lazy and prone to alcoholism. He was definitely the sort who needed something important to focus on. He was a pretty strong Nomad archetype.

"the biggest resistance so far to the unending march of progressivism through cultural institutions"

Wow, what big heads or pure historical ignorance people have. "Gamergate" (can we ever stop with the "-gate" nonsense, by the way?) the biggest anti-progressive resistance ever? Our Kulturkampf has been going on ever since progressivism existed, which is more than one hundred years. Yes, the other side has won almost everything, but the opposition has included names, institutions, and movements you've read about in history books, whether you know it or not. Those are books written by the enemy, by the way.

I think the idea is that these recent victories are the start of something new, and in that sense they may be historically unprecedented. But there have been victories in the past, and bigger ones. Ones the general public actually cared about, however briefly. But progressives marched on anyway, so you've forgotten. Wake me when gamergaters take over the educational establishment, the MSM, the civil service, elected officialdom, Big Business, etc. Because that's where the progressives' Long March ended up.

I should add, take over or render moot. Because that's possible, however unlikely. Power in our system still comes ultimately from controlling public opinion, and that's where the Left's chief advantage lies. I don't see movements fortifying little hamlets like the gaming world changing that. Certainly that doesn't stack up against other, bigger fortifications that have been built in the past.

Preserving those institutions means business as usual.
Why do you want business as usual? Do you want to destroy humanity too?

Most of those systems are going away. They don't serve a purpose for the perpetuation of civilization. They only serve the parasites and have come to represent the parasites. They might as well be cancer riddled cannibal crack whores.

Why would anyone want a cancer riddled cannibal crack whore?

Do you just make shit up?

Looks like I was mistaken. I'd heard Grant referred to as the 'Goat' of the class. Turns out that is not as explicit a term as I originally thought.

My understanding of the way regiments were raised was that everyone joined the muster as a private and then the officers were elected.

I have not spent a lot of time reading up in the details and yield to your superior knowledge.

If you didn't know what you were talking about, why did you think you should fucking lecture on the subject?

Because this is the Internet and you don't have to know anything to post on it; as you demonstrate so well.

But if that is not possible, I would choose to die surrounded by the broken, lifeless bodies of my enemies.

I really don't want to kill anyone, but I fear they will give us no choice.

Grant's shortcoming have been magnified in many quarters. Good for you admitting your mistake, but you might try reading the links you post first next time! It would've saved you one bloomer at least - it says right there on page 3 that Grant finished in the middle of his class.

Yeah, it's the Internet. We all make mistakes.

What I find interesting is the size of his class - 39 graduates for the entire year.

My understanding of the way regiments were raised was that everyone joined the muster as a private and then the officers were elected.

I'm sure different states handled their volunteers differently, but the Governor of Illinois appointed Grant the commander of the 21 Volunteers (which Grant had helped recruit). Odd, really, reading about his rise during the Civil War. This guy who'd been a marginal officer at best just kept getting handed more and more responsibility by everyone he met, even before he took any of his men into battle. "Natural Alpha" comes to mind.

Are you up for a homework assignment? Find out about the Aztec club, and tell me what the connection (other than the Mexican-American War) is between Grant and one of the guys who founded the club. It has to do with Fort Humboldt...

I tried my best to explain, but until a better writer than myself does that, people who would support gamergate and other things related will stay on the sidelines. They just don't understand why it applies to them too.- Susan

It's sort of like when Hitler and Stalin divided up Poland then Hitler rushed into the Rhineland.

It's an ancillary front, but those who don't understand military strategy or just 4th gen warfare in general, don't understand why the Leftist alliance is important or even that there is a connection between the Left and Islam or that the Left has 1000+ factions that contradict each other ideologically.

Their entire paradigm is obsolete and incorrect. Wrong logistics, wrong strategy, and thus wrong tactics.

They can't connect the dots, because they don't see the dots. They don't see the dots because the datapoints are in another paradigm.

Just checked the dates, Rhineland move was 3 years before Poland push. I would have thought they would be more worried about their eastern border before pushing on France, but this was when France still had the military power to counter Germany's military. When the Prussian officer families were thinking about getting rid of Hitler if his Rhineland op turned up sour.

They reversed it, ensured their western border would hold.

If any community falls to the Leftist advance, it will be used in some way to aid in the invasion of other communities, increasing the Left's power base.

As for gaining adherents to Gamergate... I don't think it matters how people frame it or write it as. People will support it or not, based upon their own individual analysis of the details. If they lack virtue and courage, like the French did, they aren't going to fight, no matter how you phrase it. They lack something of the soul, which isn't going to be gained via words, it can only be obtained via deeds.

@73-I'm confused. What gave you the idea I seek to conserve them?
