From Clouscard to Dugin, The Contradictions Driving Leftists to The Alt Right
By abandoning the worker in favor of neoliberalism and bourgeois academic theory, the Left has given up on what should be its main constituency.

While the 20th Century is often painted as a century of ideological battles, the “End of History,” or really its pause between 1989 and 2016, was a phenomenon that was supposedly non-ideological; the triumph of neoliberal capitalism is not framed as an ideological victory but the result of cold calculation and hard facts. This End of History narrative championed by Fukuyama and other neoliberal thinkers is often rightly criticized as short-sighted and transparent propaganda. However the gleeful celebrations of these “non-ideological’ economists are not the only forms of academic propagation of our current system. Postmodern continental philosophy and critical theory of the late 20th century is much more culpable for our current socio-economic arrangement than any neoliberal victory laps.
We often discuss how antifa and the modern academic left carry water for neoliberalism, and see hilarious manifestations of their ideological schizophrenia all the time. Western campus Marxists support Pentagon-funded Kurdish rebels in Syria, and Newsweek’s resident corporate antifa, Michael Edison Hayden, calls Mike Enoch a conspiracy theorist for casting doubt on the transparently staged Assad “gas attacks. ”

While we can easily point to many more specific examples of antifa colluding with multinational corporations and governments to further the stated and implicit goals of the current ruling class, the mechanisms of why and how supposed anarcho-communists are in concert with the institutions of neoliberalism are often poorly explained and sometimes poorly understood. The roots of this phenomenon, of a supposedly Marxist and “pro-worker” Left performing their duties as foot soldiers for capitalism, began 50 years ago. In Western academia, history’s end didn’t start with the fall of the Berlin Wall, but with the revolutionary fervor of the May 1968 student strikes in France. The events of May 1968 have been meticulously recorded and endlessly dissected by the schools of critical theory which they spawned. However it can most easily be understood as the dissolution of the Maoist consensus within the French academy through students violently expressing their myopic demands for a more radically emancipatory form of politics.

One of the key points to take away from Moldbug is the De Jouvenelian insight that (successful) rebellion is always, without exception, a mere tool of someone already in a position of power. Whig/ Liberal rubbish on this flows freely, with an ever ready pool of anti-establishment Liberals with an obscenely delusional conception of anthropology always coming up with new ways to rebel. It is always their 16th birthday in the Liberal tradition. Now most of these don’t amount to a thing, but on occasion some rebel movement becomes of some value to someone in power, at which point it “magically” gains traction and the history afterwards is written as if it was a force of nature bubbling up from below.

The process should really have a name, and the best I can come up with is “The iron law of rebellious tools.”

To demonstrate this iron law, it is worthwhile picking any serious rebellious movement for liberty, and then having a look at exactly where the movement got funding, and who supported it. I briefly mentioned the concept on this post, but it does deserve unpacking and demonstrating in more detail.

First, pick a rebellion, any rebellion. For my purposes I will stick with the civil rights movement of the 1960s. Obviously this movement had many famous rebels who bubbled up like a force of nature and were the embodiment of the zeitgeist of progress which just can not be stopped. Ever. Progress is a bitch. So we have three very famous examples of leaders of the civil right’s massively successful rebellion: Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, and Malcolm X. Now if I can demonstrate that each of these examples had strong backing from within the power structure of the USA, then the iron law is maintained, if not, then it fails.

That's a keeper.
“When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe.”
