Without a doubt Yarvin must have a dizzying intellect. Reading his narrative is like taking a graduate course in sociology from Einstein. I feel like I’ll need to read it three more times to make sure I followed all his points. Basically he’s explaining why Progressives believe the nonsense they believe. He used climate science as an example and it is interesting. Support for the Progressive worldview allows Leftists to feel good about themselves by believing that the warming narrative makes sense. It’s a dense read but if you liked Part 1, you’ll have to continue down the rabbit hole..
The Clear Pill, Part 2 of 5: A Theory of Pervasive Error
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.
