This would be why

From Wikipedia Talk: Vox Day
In what sense is Vox Day a philosopher? The article only lists some half-baked (and eminently controversial) positions on race. It does not appear that he has been published in any academic journals or contributed anything to the philosophical discourse.

Concur; removed. The "philosophical views" section was a political views section, so I've also renamed that accordingly
- David Gerard (talk) 21:44, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

Meh. I think it could be included due to his publication of The Irrational Atheist, which is a philosophical work. Kelly hi! 11:20, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

I believe his work on Social Justice Warriors was the #1 seller in political philosophy for quite some time.

Per the section immediately below this one, you can get #1 in an Amazon section with literally three sales. It's not evidence of any sort of notability
- David Gerard (talk) 18:38, 29 April 2016 (UTC)

It's not evidence of notability, unless, of course, the category happens to be the one that contains every philosopher from Aristotle to Machiavelli and Rousseau. It's been a year since SJWAL first became the #1 bestseller in Political Philosophy. And do you know what, it still is!


This usefully demonstrates, by the way, why you can never take anything an SJW says at face value. Even when he tells the absolute literal truth, he is often doing so in a deceptive manner to cloak an obvious falsehood. For example, it is absolutely true that one "can get #1 in an Amazon section with literally three sales", at least as long as that category is Books > Medical Books > Psychology > Movements > Transpersonal, where a bestseller only needs to hit #70,000 on Amazon to reach #1.

On the other hand, to hit #1 in Romance, you need to hit #3 overall. So, Mr. Gerard's statement is clearly false, as a #1 Amazon category bestseller may, or may not, be evidence of notability. It depends upon the category. So, does the Political Philosophy category suffice to establish notability? One would presume so, particularly if one is attempting to determine whether the author is a philosopher or not.

The SJW will not hesitate to substitute the general for the particular, or the particular for the general, depending upon what he is trying to prove or disprove. It's a standard trick upon which they rely heavily. Don't fall for it.

Good old Wikipedia. Trying to fight that battle is futile when some neckbeard will camp a page and revert your edit, with pithy comments ad infinitum. No matter your ability to show John Scalzi stated "I am a rapist". Reality is not "Reality" to them. I always find it amusing when Liberal Facebook friends, complain about the use of Semantics to make a point, when I just inform them I've learned to speak the language of my enemy.

There are two Political Philosophy categories. Books and Kindle. Right now, the ebook is #10 in the former and #1 in the latter. And the paperback is also #34.

Given that I usually have 4 or 5 editions in the top 50 of the Books category, I am almost certainly the bestselling political philosopher alive.

Nicely done, Leo Little.

The philosophising that is popular and acclaimed by political pundits is that kind of philosophy that ponders the ineffable and ephemeral, that speculates endlessly about things that touch on no direct reality of the moment, explores no topical questions affecting the lives of real people, and touches on no political hot rocks.

Even the word "philosophising" has all those connotations.

But Vox is not a philosopher because he deals with reality.

Per Mr. Cernovich, I can totally understand why you're conducting this particular little cock-fight. It makes sense from a business point of view, and also from a messaging point of view. And your message is important, so the game, as it were, is worth the candle.

But on a sheer ontological level, I'd urge you to relax. The book has an important message to convey, and people are reading and relating to that message. That is sufficient. Have a Bex and a lie-down.

Whether or not it's philosophy, strictly speaking, hardly matters. Chuang-Tzu had some rather sharp things to say about Confucius. Marcus Aurelius didn't really write within what we'd call the philosophical tradition, neither did Catulluus, but we still read them, and care about what they had to say. Wallace Stevens.... I don't even know WHAT the fuck that stuff is, but I take it very seriously. Same with Frank O'Hara and Wendell Berry. Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges.

All of this is absolutely true. It hasn't been altered for lulz. This is 100% actual factual truth. It doesn't need to be lullified. He really is a bisexual goth s&m freak with a disabled wife and furry girlfriend, and he got that girlfriend pregnant, while his wife has her own girlfriend. He really is a senior member of Wikipedia - the [...] UK media spokesperson and a Checkuser. He is meant to be respectable! He uses his real name in all of this.

Some of them do it knowingly. Others just don't know what they are doing. I wonder what the ratio is, and I always wonder, when faced with it, which one I am dealing with. Truth is, I don't think it can be figured out, and more, I don't think it matters... not on the small scale. Now, I think of sjw's and women as nearly interchangeable. A woman, sometimes, to a degree, can come around. If she has kids, for example, and actually loves them (not always true), then she wants the state to keep the hell away from them, and leave her to choose as she sees fit. SJW's? As such I can't help but wonder...

The implication is that you put yourself in the same level as Aristotle ? I doubt you believe this ... Do you not see that you are guilty of the same sin as you accuse them .. A literal truth that is deceptive.

"For example, it is absolutely true that one "can get #1 in an Amazon section with literally three sales", at least as long as that category is Books > Medical Books > Psychology > Movements > Transpersonal, where a bestseller only needs to hit #70,000 on Amazon to reach #1."

Lets get down to cold hard facts -- you are #1 in the category -- how many copies have you sold ?.. that's the where the all the claims on both sides live or die ... #1 means nothing if its 10, 100-200 copies # 1 means something if its 100K copies... we go thru this all the time .. lets talk real numbers see what it means. I know you have this data ... What sort of numbers of sales does it take to get to #1 in this category... we have unique opportunity to understand the amazon rating system and once and for all put this BS to bed.

It only takes a few sales to GET there. To STAY there for a year takes considerably more. Likely, a "few sales" on a regular cycle. Given internet time, probably daily.

You're incorrect. I am not on the same level as Aristotle nor is that the implication. The only implication is that I belong in the same CATEGORY as Aristotle, and I most certainly do. But whereas he is the most significant philosopher in history, I am, at the moment, a very minor one. But one nonetheless.

It's a bit ironic, as my claim to be a political philosopher is much stronger than my claim to be a musician, and yet virtually no one would question that thanks to my three Billboard Top 40 Club hits.

All the information you require to work this out is already publicly available. Suffice it to say that the sales are considerably more than 100 copies and considerably less than 100,000 copies. And I would be very, very happy if all Castalia books sold that well.

My son, who just graduated from high school, could answer ALL of the questions you posed. He was homeschooled. He had a 4.0 in his 35 hours of Dual Enrollment College credits and took 7 AP tests with all 5s. He scored a perfect SAT score. He played Varsity football for 4 years, played the viola in orchestra for 8 years and went to Nationals in Speech & Debate for three years. He applied to Princeton and Harvard and did not get in. Why? Who knows. I have thought it was possibly that he is a white heterosexual protestant conservative male. But they don’t tell you why kids are rejected. So maybe part of the problem is that the students who are educated in high school to know about Western Civilization are not the sort of students that colleges like Princeton and Notre Dame want. Maybe that’s why you aren’t seeing kids who can think.

Machiavelli and Rousseau are not philosophers. No atheist can be a philosopher. The word itself, "philo-sophia", is about loving something outside oneself.

Netnanny is correct. ED is for Beavis and Butthead; Cernovich is for adults.

Queer Black Lives Matter Founders Put 'Terrorist' Trump Among 'Worst Fascists in History'

What's funny about the doofus not wanting to admit Vox Day is a philosopher is he reveals that he stupidly assumes that no one can be a philosopher unless HE agrees with the philosophy. I can call a person a "philosopher" even if I think he's stupid and I disagree with his stupid philosophy. In fact, I do it all the time.

Yes, it's rather like Beelzebubba, Lord Hee-Haw of Arkansas' famous "I did not have sex with that woman!" declaration. The SJWs in Lügenpresse knew exactly how to ask the question, too. Not one of them followed up the assertion with the question: "Did that woman have sex with you?" because this would have required Beelzebubba to literally perjure himself - which he might have done anyway just to show that he could and get away with it. Not to mention that the one who asked such a question would have been found later on to have committed suicide by cutting his own head off with a razor blade.

But what about your art collection?

I haven't bought any expensive art after realizing that drunk ex boyfriends are destructive.

That's what the Advocate claims. Success has a thousand potential fathers, just like Latrina's 21 crackbabies.

Even worse black judge chimps out over all white jury. No blacks showing up for jury duty, because you need a clean criminal record to serve.

"In a city that is 23 percent black, 41 potential jurors arrived — only one African-American, according to court records. The defense asked Stevens to dismiss the panel. He declined, noting the lack of diversity was unusual but the panel had been appropriately selected at random.

Neither side struck the black juror. As jury selection neared its end, four jurors too many remained. The clerk drew names randomly to strike. One was the African-American.

Stevens then dismissed the panel because it didn't represent the community's racial diversity."

I obviously didn't click the link, but there's this nifty feature in some browsers where you can read where the link leads before you do anything stupid.

The SJW is the center of his known universe and the measure of all things.

Wow, just wow. Awesome work!

Here I go again; I really hope Stefan and Vox discusses the dialectical versus rhetoric angles as both and so many others are well versed in philosophy.

We all need to unplug from the emo distortions and turn on critical thinking skills minus the rhetoric.

Pre SJW and SJW that cannot be reached refuse to acknowledge the higher IQ's here (not mine, I'm average IQ), for example our Stickwick, Kong, Nate and so many others, please accept my gratitude for all I've learned here.

I'm sure philo and IQ dont matter but around here (wink) the average superb intel is quite high and sjws cannot accept that.
