I told you so

June 19, 2014 § 12 Comments

If you want to write a neoreactionary screed, spend some time with the postmodern essay generator to learn the style.

UPDATE:

The main problem with postmodernism isn’t aesthetic, of course.  De gustibus non est disputandum and all that.  The main problem with postmodernism is that it is a pack of self-refuting lies, stuck in the very modernity that it pretends to reject.

UPDATE 2:

More reflections on how smart neoreactionaries are, and how cool it is that they are the smartest guys in the room.  Who needs substance when you’ve got great clothes and a big IQ?

    I’m actually in the process of creating a neoreaction equivalent to the PoMoGen.

    You don’t say.

    Narrative theory? There is no way the current neo-Reaction is going to make sense of anything for anyone. It’s a neo-Victorian logorrhea movement.

  • Peter Blood says:

    Or, to modify my quip, to write like a neo-Reactionary is to self-obfuscate into oblivion.

  • Then again, what is the *#(@&&& point?

    “You talk like a fag” is probably true of ol’ Kantbot, but it hardly rises to an argument.

    The proper thing to do when one doesn’t understand a thing is either to avoid commenting upon it or do diligence to learn about it. But here you stand flinging poo like an ape. Of course, Kantbot is on the hot seat right now within the reactionary community for betraying profoundly un-reactionary ideas (like, e.g., being a inference-denying Kantian), but you wouldn’t bother yourself to know that. You’d prefer to fling poo at a guy who talks like a fag. It is indeed quite fun, and that little dopamine hit when your friends cheer is also very nice.

    @jf12

    Are you addressing me or Zippy?

    nickbsteves:
    Is that your way of distancing yourself from the approving comment you made in the post?

    That comment by “John” was hilarious.

    @MarcusD, “You don’t say” is an occasionally favorite nonsense saying. Idiomatically it’s supposed to, ironically I guess, imply agreement with a categorically obvious statement. As applied to “I told you so”, it’s more amusing than usual.

    This may be one of those cases where the explanation was funnier.

  • Marissa says:

    Criticism against neoreactionary bluster = “you talk like a fag”. Even more reason not to take you guys seriously. One might think autism comes into play if this misunderstanding is sincere, otherwise it’s merely a failed attempt at rhetorical combat.
