My claim is that the next murderous regime will be less based around agi¬≠tation, fear-mongering and fiery speeches. It will come, there is good reason to suspect, from the source we least expect: comedy. In the echoing laughter of the crowd, transmitted over long dis¬≠tances of net¬≠worked broadcasting, we will find the next genocide. Un¬≠wanted popul¬≠a¬≠tions violently exterminated, and the crowd laughing, laughing. The following is a slightly edited extract from Hanzi Freinacht‚Äôs book¬†‚ÄėNordic Ideology: A Metamodern Guide to Politics, Book Two‚Äô. This is the second book in a series on metamodern thought, a work of popular philosophy that investigates

In this series of what we can learn from the totalitarian ideologies (for communism click here, and for fascism click here), I‚Äôd wish things would get less demonic around this time and that I could point to a cuter and happier ending when we get to New Age spirit¬≠uality. But alas, as the human (or post-human) condition progresses, it only gets more wondrous, complex, per¬≠ilous and terrifying, all at once. As Leon Trotsky once said ‚ÄúThe forms of life will become dyn¬≠am¬≠ically dramatic [‚Ķ] And above this ridge new peaks will rise.‚ÄĚ He just for¬≠got to mention the new opening

It‚Äôs difficult to be playful around fascism. It arose in shaky times, gathered absolute power in the hands of fanatic psychopaths who not only oppress¬≠ed their own populations but also got us the Second World War and the Holo¬≠caust. To this day, we have crazy mass-killers swearing allegiance to fascist theories. Naturally, it‚Äôs not a joke.[i] And yet, the understanding of fascism as ‚Äúpure evil‚ÄĚ (and only an exist¬≠en¬≠tial lie) is simplistic, bordering on incorrect. There are very good rea¬≠sons to revisit fascism and perform a little psycho-historical archeology to dig up partial truths that may serve political metamodernism and

As you may know, the anarchists were eventually excluded from the Inter¬≠national in the 19th century‚ÄĒMikhail Bakunin lost the fight to Karl Marx, and the latter became the de facto intellectual and political leader of the European radicalized workers. Unlike Bakunin, Marx thought it necessary to seize real political power, i.e. to keep the state intact during the first steps towards an anticipated classless and stateless society. Utopian socialist ideals such as those of Char¬≠les Fourier (one of the great pre-Marxist socialist thinkers, 1772-1837, also credited with coining the word ‚Äúfeminism‚ÄĚ) were sidelined to only be found in small ‚Äúintentional

Tom Amarque’s Parallax Magazine recently hosted me on their political discussion forum. I think “Strange Attractor” is an apt title for this group. Here is their description: Since the system of politics in its modern and postmodern iteration is obviously not fit to deal with the manifold problems (meta-crisis), how could a ‚Äėpost-postmodern‚Äô approach to politics look like? What new narrative is needed to legitimize a new (metamodern/post-postmodern/post-progressive) approach to politics? Featuring Steve McIntosh, Daniel G√∂rtz, John Bunzl, Max Borders and Thaddeus Russell. The post Parallax Magazine’s political discussion forum appeared first on Steve McIntosh: Official Website.

For all its different forms, Green ideology seeks to create sustainability of some kind. Even if some proponents of more radical forms of ecologism like to point out that the aim can hardly be to ‚Äúsustain‚ÄĚ a destructive and eco¬≠cidal civilization, that they prefer ‚Äúresilience‚ÄĚ or even ‚Äúregeneration‚ÄĚ, this still means that ecologists want this new imagined and preferable state of affairs to be‚Ķ well, sustainable. No matter how you look at it, sustain¬≠abi¬≠lity is the dem¬≠and, the goal, of ecologism. Resilience and regeneration both include sus¬≠tain¬≠ability within them. The following is a slightly edited extract from Hanzi Freinacht‚Äôs book¬†‚ÄėNordic
