Reader responses to my thirty questions in the recent “Why Is The Sky Blue” post. What else needs to be asked?
1. Is there transcendence in intoxication?
Only if you’re already intoxicated by life. — Each Pond Gone
Yes but it’s temporary and it comes at a cost. — Suburban_elk
Depends on the intoxicant, set, and setting — Ripple Earthdevil
No. (I thought last night of the San Fran warehouse rave CO documented with a rollcall of the dead at heartiste, and Hillary’s nuclear war, and it occurred to me they were a sort of holocaust). — Lucius Somesuch
There is definitely “transcendence” in toxic casing… It is called “liberationist theology.” It is ideological self-annihilation. The logical idea to General Entropy, ie., total degeneration. — Thordaddy
No. — Samson J.
No, you just think there is. — peterike
Yes. A drunk mouth speaks a sober mind. — Recce Room
2. Is Rock dead?
I’m afraid that it is. I am wondering when all of the liberal white male rockers in the music business start to get upset after realizing record companies/stations don’t want to feature their music any more. — Camlost
In the sense that it’s no longer breathing. But reverberations of that amped mirage will be felt even in ‘classical’ for a long while. — Each Pond Gone
… as far the musical genre, yeah pretty much. — Suburban_elk
Hardly — Ripple Earthdevil
Yes. (though Noel Gallagher could still accomplish something of merit). — Lucius Somesuch
It’s not dead, but it’s in an old-folks’ home where the kids regard it as cute. — Samson J.
No. Go to YouTube and type in “wussy” — peterike
Sadly, yes. — Recce Room
Obviously — Nozdryov
3. What is your purpose in life?
Actuate genuine white Supremacy. — Thordaddy
My cause in life is preventing baby boys from having their genitals altered in the ritual of circumcision. […] At its heart, circumcision diminishes sexual intimacy and pair bonding. — Suburban_elk
To do the best for my family, and use my gifts for the world’s good. — Samson J.
Paying for my children then dying. — peterike
To crush my enemies. To see them driven before me. And to hear the lamentations of their women. — Recce Room
4. Was the 1944 Warsaw Uprising a mistake or a sacrifice with long-term recompense?
Alan Clark’s “Barbarossa: The Russian-German Conflict, 1941-1945” deals at length with the Polish Uprising. He notes: “One of the Poles has described how from the tallest building, when the smoke cleared, they could see German and Russian soldiers bathing on opposite sides of the Vistula River in apparent amity, or as if in tacit acceptance of a truce which was to last while Polish gallantry was extinguished.” (p 392) — Lucius Somesuch
Sacrifice. — peterike
It was needed. — Recce Room
I originally read this as the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Given how Jewish-centric current tellings of history are, that was just a reflex and I thought, “no – it wasn’t a mistake and I would have wanted to die at a high price also.” Considering the Warsaw Uprising, I’m of a different mind. Better to have waited for the Germans and Russians to have fought it out and then made desperate fight for freedom from the Russians. Hopefully the Poles have now permanently absorbed the lesson that Russians will always try to screw them. I’d defer to you here, PA. — DN Poolside
5. Why am I not a liberal?
Because I understand history. — Camlost
Because I cannot legitimate the desire for self-annihilation EVEN under the “truth” of “infinite regress” and General Entropy. — Thordaddy
Because liberalism violates the laws of nature. — peterike
Because I think. — Recce Room
Because a liberal cannot exist — Nozdryov
Low disgust threshold — PA
6. Can one step into the same river twice?
This is the “glitch”
In the “make tricks”
A sign of systemic redundancy
And the reality of dummies
Yet it is that itch
Into conscious fits
A recognition of a singularity
A neo not see bits…
Yes, just like absolutely (per Bart Simpson) there is a sound of one hand clapping. — Samson J.
Yes, of course you can. That comment is just intellectual dissembling. Are we sure Heraclitus wasn’t Jewish? It’s a very Talmudic, lawyer statement that may be true to the letter, but utterly wrong to the spirit. Believe me, I swam in the SAME DAMN RIVER many, many times as a kid. — peterike
No. — Recce Room
What peterike said. — PA
7. How did my 18th century paternal great(xN)-grandfather look and what would we talk about if we met?
One of my favourite questions, since I am fascinated by genealogy. Alas since I’ve thought about it so much, the answer is too long for here. — Samson J.
He looked like me. We’d talk about the Holy Roman Empire and how it related to the Kingdom of Bavaria. — peterike
Looked a lot like me, but shorter. We would talk about why men aren’t men anymore. — Recce Room
Definitely shorter. But more broadly and deeply educated. We would talk about the prospects of the colonies — Nozdryov
8. What is the most beautiful thing today?
The fact that in spite of everything, I can still see beauty in my wife, my kids, the woods… — Samson J.
The certainty that we are in the midst of a vast and redemptive historical shift. History isn’t quite rhyming or repeating, but humidifying into a rare climax. — Each Pond Gone
Silence — peterike
Waking up to another glorious day. — Recce Room
Racial purity — PA
9. What happened to all of the masculine Leftists?
They became Bernie Bros and they are in serious disarray and panicked confusion right now. –– Camlost
They’re wearing bandanas over their faces and vandalizing Oakland, Portland OR, and other places. — Ripple Earthdevil
They never existed… They were an illusion of the nascent Mess Madia. — Thordaddy
Good question; I wonder that myself. — Samson J.
Nothing. They still rule most of the Left. They have simply cultivated an army of preening girl-men. — peterike
There never were any. There cannot be. — Recce Room
They were purged — Nozdryov
Give Pajama Boy real power and he becomes Che Guevara — PA
10. What is the prettiest female name?
Melissa — Ripple Earthdevil
My daughter’s, Adeline. (French p. Ad’leene) — Chase
Lily White. — Thordaddy
I like the name Leigh. — Lara
Adeline is a good choice. I am also partial to Maria, Michelle, Nicole, Francesca, Sarah, Natalie, Isabelle, Gabriella, Paulina, Julia, Sophia, and Keira. And others in that general vein, — Lothar of the Hill People
Agree also on “Melissa” as a beautiful name though I hadn’t thought of it until I saw it above. Means bee in Greek, and for real pedantry, it’s accented on the first syllable. And is also a great but sad song from about the same time as Box of Rain. — Marc
Elizabeth (my daughter’s name). — Samson J.
I don’t know, but probably something Gaelic like Aelwen. — peterike
One that doesn’t have a man’s name imbedded. — Recce Room
Your mother’s — Nozdryov
11. What would an AltRighter’s public response be if he were for some reason victimized by nationalists?
“Does he hate my white socialism?” — Thordaddy
I forgive them. They are on the right path even though we disagreed about X. — peterike
Sure as hell wouldn’t be whining. — Recce Room
What Recce Room said. — PA
12. What is the most elusive thing?
A river of inspiration that can’t ‘step into the same you’ twice. — Each Pond Gone
(P)erfection… By free-willed choice. — Thordaddy
A satisfying resolution to the tension between wanting sinful things and knowing they’re wrong. — Samson J.
Personal peace — peterike
Decency. — Recce Room
13. Do Islam and Mormonism have anything in common?
Yes. Fan fiction! — Lucius Somesuch
Desire for radical sexual autonomy. — Thordaddy
Quite a lot; too much to go into. For one thing I think they’re both attractive and both contain a lot of truth. — Samson J.
Yes. They are both extremely attractive to male cucks. — peterike
About half. — Recce Room
14. Is it wrong to have so few regrets?
Nope. I have very few, and couldn’t be happier about it. I’m intrigued to know why it *would* be wrong. — Samson J.
No. — peterike
No– Recce Room
15. Does haste ever not make waste?
Often — peterike
No. — Recce Room
16. What is white Supremacy — or White supremacy?
The former is properly ordered while the latter is dysfunctionally ordered. The former is a voluntary collective of white men who believe in and therefore strive towards OBJECTIVE (S)upremacy, i.e., (P)erfection. The latter is an ambiguous collective of “whites” either (a) given to all-out degeneracy or (b) partial to some all-white ethno-socialist State. — Thordaddy
white Supremacy = understanding WHY whites are the supreme race
White supremacy = knowing you are white — peterike
It’s what its name suggests. — Recce Room
Ws: G. Vasari; contemporary Bösendorfers; limited exhibitions; release doves; sheer invention
wS: Albrecht Dürer; 1929 Mason & Hamlin CC; private circulation; swans; Unalloyed Creation — Each Pond Gone
17. Is art more perfect when true to life?
Not so true that it records the frequency of one’s bowel movements. — Lucius Somesuch
Yes. Representational art is categorically superior to non-representational, though non-r can still be done well. — peterike
No. — Recce Room
18. Are Mulattoes tragic?
Evidence here at this blog suggests that they are. — Camlost
The Dominican Republic next year. — Lucius Somesuch
Only within the worldy Epic… Metaphysically, they are dawged by (P)erfection and self-annihilation just the same. — Thordaddy
Yes. — Samson J.
Yes, invariably. — peterike
No. — Recce Room
Always — Nozdryov
19. Which popular song contains the most wisdom?
T-ara’s “Bo Peep Bo Peep” — Lucius Somesuch
Hell by the Squirrel Nut Zippers — stevetirone
Grateful Dead: Box of Rain — Each Pond Gone
As I hit No. 19, I immediately thought “Box of Rain,” and how no one here – for perfectly good reasons – could possibly “get” that. Surprised but pleased to find EPG agrees. — Marc
Popular song from recently? I wouldn’t know. I’m partial to a lot of Axl Rose’s wisdom (“the only validation is in living your own life; vicarious existence is a fucking waste of time”) — Samson J.
The Mountain Goats, “Isaiah 45-23” — peterike
Only the good die young. — Recce Room
Beethoven’s Ninth — Nozdryov
“Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down” – Kris Kristofferson/Johnny Cash — Lothar of the Hill People
Lynyrd Skynyrd “Simple Man.” Echo: Drive-By Truckers “Outfit” — PA
20. Will it be peaceful or bloody?
It shall be bloody peaceful and peacefully bloody… Per the assassin’s creed. — Thordaddy
More peaceful than otherwise, I expect. — Samson J.
Bloody, but not for a long while yet. — peterike
Depends on whether it’s worth it. — Recce Room
21. Is there a foreign agent behind the racial cuckoldry?
Helena Blavatsky. This governess of globalism did some real damage. — Each Pond Gone
Yes… But at the level of individual affliction said “foreign agent” is merely memetic mau-mauing of a dull (white) mass by an all-pervasive Mess Madia and at the particular point of “foreign agent” of “racial cuckoldry” is the radical autonomist (a dispiritedly deracinated, de facto homo, jew-nigger idolater) actuating this global infection. The convergence of this across-class-divide is the self-annihilating ideology of anti-white Supremacy. — Thordaddy
Of course. Jews. Full stop. — peterike
Of course. — Recce Room
22. What is friendship?
Friendship includes a sense of satisfaction and enjoyment in spending time together, in conjunction with genuine concern for the other’s welfare. — Samson J.
A confluence of interests and proclivities. — peterike
Wanting to be around someone of the same gender for non-reproductive reasons. — Recce Room
23. “Grandpa, what did you do during White Genocide?”
I raised yer mum, gave money where I could, and refused to believe in evil. — Samson J.
Nothing — peterike
Read the stories they wrote. — Recce Room
The reverse Alinsky — Nozdryov
“Not Enough.” — Each Pond Gone
24. Have you ever journeyed into the Underworld and if so, what did you keep?
Yes; fair deal of stolen objets d’art, some unhinged memories and a couple emblematic scars. — Each Pond Gone
No, I havent. — Samson J.
Yes. My soul, barely. — peterike
My mind. — Recce Room
Yes, I traveled to the Underworld once. I lost a piece of my soul there, but gained some wisdom (which was not worth the fee, alas). I was also given a mission by God as part of my penance for journeying there, in the same vein as the ancient mariner was given a task after slaying the albatross. — Samson J.
Thinking I’m climbing Olympus, I was in fact descending to the underworld. Kept one part pride, two parts regret. — PA
25. What can a quadriplegic man do to live his best?
Preach faith in The Perfect Man and speak a disrepute for the annihilation of the self. — Thordaddy
Perhaps more than one thinks. — Samson J.
This is too awful to contemplate. Pass. — peterike
Same as a regular man: don’t whine about it, do something. — Recce Room
26. Can a mudshark find redemption?
Modern antibiotics can accomplish quite a bit, but I still don’t want you back. — Camlost
Can a mudshark find redemption? It is a question in need of attention less the jaws of a lot of mulatto cynicism bite white privilege with one thousand indecisions. Swirled ice cream melts with an oil-slicked crystal blue ocean the shark-infested vision. Predators require white men with killer metaphors to imagine horrors that -ish fins off the swimming carnivores. Pedo-paddling underwater cannibalists rolling near the baby white boys on shore. Let’s create doors on sand floors that mudsharks can freestyle towards. A mudshark has to want redemption as her forward. — Thordaddy
Maybe, but I can’t think how. — Samson J.
Not really. — peterike
No. — Recce Room
Regarding 26, a mudshark who bears a child can never find redemption. A mudshark can also never find redemption in her fathers eyes, and she and her mother should know it. A mudshark can find redemption in society. Young girls make mistakes and betas need wives too, if the lesson has truly been learned. — DN Poolside
This short piece of fiction suggests that she doesn’t even want it. — PA
27. Have you ever scaled Olympus and if so, what did you keep?
No. I gaze at it from afar, knowing I will never get there. — peterike
My mind. — Recce Room
Thinking I’m descending to the underworld, I was in fact scaling Olympus. Kept two parts pride, one part regret. — PA
28. Should I be afraid of death?
Only if actual life amounts to a waking death — Each Pond Gone
If you desire total annihilation or a “conscious” oblivion then “no,” but if those things give you the heebeejeebees then “yes.” Yet, there is a synthesis that allows one to feel the distraught anxiety of a postmortem abyss and still be at ease with a final physical death. It is called…
Heaven with your Father. — Thordaddy
No. — peterike
Only if you are afraid of life. — Recce Room
No — Nozdryov
29. How do we value something without it first having to be gone?
Don’t be a fucking idiot. Think ahead. — peterike
We cannot. — Recce Room
Cunningly bolster/promote ‘it’ to a select group of state museums, and let it fly accordingly… — Each Pond Gone
30. What do you want?
To save all my children’s souls. Anything less is a personal damnation. — Thordaddy
Paradise for myself and my family. — Samson J.
Peace of mind. — peterike
Life. Liberty. Pursuit of happiness. — Recce Room
Many questions, but one answer: White Supremacy.
It can make things very simple, if applied properly.
