Re: White men, European genetics, masculinity and genius

You are surely entitled to your opinion, Jupes. I am fairly sure that you do not understand what is being talked about or referred to (and which must be separated from my own person as the one who asserts it). I understand it on its own terms quite well, which is precisely why I'm tying it back to ...

Re: White men, European genetics, masculinity and genius

Confusion is the order of the day, the general state, the condition of the mind for many many people, and I would say especially those who seem to have a coherent rap. Confusion is not something to be ashamed of. It is something to interrogate and, through knowledge and research and conversation, t...

Re: White men, European genetics, masculinity and genius

My understanding runs like this, tell me what you think: In the aftermath of the Second World War and the war-propaganda narratives that were put into motion, the notion of 'whiteness' and of 'white culture' and any definition which had even a smidgen of the sense of 'superior' or 'better' was vili...

Re: White men, European genetics, masculinity and genius

This has been allowed. I would use as an example 'the brown end of the bromance' and his entire presence within, as I say, Western categories. What is he doing here? In fact, he has no business here. I only mean this to illustrate that all manner of different people --- from the brown world of cour...

Re: White men, European genetics, masculinity and genius

I do not see culture as an 'abstraction'. Yes, as Diebert has pointed out, it is a more a series of passionate claims based (putatively) on a profound desire or need. On the other hand, you haven't stopped with the claims, but went on to describe the respective ethics and paths of personal and soci...

Re: White men, European genetics, masculinity and genius

I do not think that the cultural roots that I would define are at all 'vague', quite the opposite. But keep in mind that if I define 'identity' as a necessary project --- and I mean quite exclusively White identity, European identity and an exclusionary decisiveness which will deliberately unsettle...

Re: Return to body, substance & solidity (was Trumpism)

Speaking of returning to body and substance, I've got a question for Alex. Why do you always focus on cultural rather than familial dysfunction, with solutions coming in the form of going back to vaguely defined cultural roots rather than traditional family structure? Even in your critique of myself...

Re: Trumpism

How about a comparison with the Western Roman Empire via recent economic history? Let's say Y2k equates to the 3rd century crisis/es and Clinton & Dubya equate to Diocletian/the Constantines and Valentinians respectively. That makes Obama the Theodosians, which in turn makes Trump either Petronius M...

If I have a main gripe, or have had a main gripe, the gripe is genuine if one is genuinely concerened for the question: What does it mean to be wise?

Re: Trumpism

In the end, I think I'm just looking for a bigger picture, a bigger concern, a larger sense of Human. Which is what philosophy should be all about and indeed is. While politics more and more is becoming about smaller pictures, little concerns and tiny conceptions of human nature. And that's of cour...

Re: Trumpism

In sum, I don't think it is possible at present to tell which faction - left, alt-left, right or alt-right - is "significantly the worst". Due to the complexity of it, it's impossible to come up with an objective measure. For me, the deciding factor is freedom of speech, but others may vary. But it...
