Awhile back I linked to a post by Michael Anton in which he reviewed a self-published book called Bronze Age Mindset. Well the author of that book was given a chance to address the content of the post over at Claremont’s American Mind webpage. I’ve linked to it below. If you are at all interested in the dissident community that was the on-line heart of Donald Trump’s support in 2016 then you may find this article very informative. I did. The pseudonymous author (Bronze Age Pervert) is extremely persuasive in laying out his case for the need, or rather, the unavoidable certainty of the collapse of the current liberal worldview. Highly recommended read.
America’s Delusional Elite Is Done
Mencius Moldbug (aka Curtis Yarvin) was the tech savant who got interested in the power structures of the modern world. He is credited with borrowing the red pill/blue pill imagery from the “The Matrix” and using it as an analogy for waking up to how the world really is run.
In this new set of posts, over at Claremont Institute’s “the American Mind,” he describes, in his typically long, highly elaborate way, a thought experiment to try to get at the objective truth of how our society is actually controlled as opposed to the official version.
Yarvin is not an easy read. His writing style is expansive. It reminds me of a spider spinning a web that spirals out and out until you can’t even remember where you started. But I find him extremely interesting.
