It’s (Mostly) All Demography

Demographics are a popular issue to talk about, within political, geopolitical, and economic groups, pretty much all have a concern of some sort. I would like to add history to that list to demonstrate how all of these come together, and what that might mean for the future.
Populations are not generic of course, and the self-identified differentiation between them is usually enough of a shorthand to see where practical considerations will lie, but there are also harder factors that will dictate the boundaries. These groups often have their own cultural spheres, their own hierarchies and leadership networks, and will find themselves on their own path in relation to others – even if they sometimes reside near one another geographically. There is often a geographical consideration, but it does not seem to be definitive compared to other circumstances; both material and spiritual.

Conflicting Traditions and Universal Truths

Part of the draw, if not the main draw, to studying topics such as power relations, social dynamics, and political trajectories – is the promise of unearthing some universal qualities which will make sense of the world in some underlying way. Conversely, there is the opposite proposition: that all traditions are distinct and particular to particular people. After all, if there is no such thing as a generic man without a distinct culture or tradition, then stimuli will be reacted to differently at both the micro and macro scale.

Shorthands: Nuclear Family

Rugged individualism is ubiquitously credited by conservatives as the distinguishing factor in the success of the American Empire, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, hyper-individualism and by extension nihilism is precisely what has eroded American society. The truth is it was the Nuclear Family which set

A passing thought on Spengler’s Cycle

The Spenglerian cycle, at least in part, has been accepted as the God-given truth by most on the side of it. I argue elsewhere that this is due to Spengler being a prophet and not a philosopher. Yet even prophets have trouble predicting the entire future, and every theory has

Owned and Borrowed Power

Networks of influence and influence hierarchies are something that are well-known, and well understood in principle, but specificities around what the peak of any such network would look like – are often elusive. There may be disagreement on whether, in practice, a large number of small nodes exist, or one

A Tangible Shape of Parallelism

Following January 6th, parallelism entered our collective consciousness as a result of the self-reflection that always comes post-treachery. Instinctively, many of us realized that Trump was the last chance at a peaceful solution of institutional reform. It was the revelation that the institutions were the very source of the hostile elite, rather than a victim of them, which led to this conclusion.

This is the underlying theory in muchof Hoppe’s work, from “Democracy: The God that Failed” to “Getting Libertarianism Right”, and there arelessons to be taken here for any right-winger, even those who reject the Austro-libertarian approach ofa property-rights rooted self-ownership.

Power, Tyranny, and the Twilight of Democracy

Alexis de Tocqueville foresaw that over time, democracy would become a conservative mechanism as opposed to a progressive one. Ever astute, De Tocqueville realised very early in his examination of the democratic systems in America and in his native France, that although each successive wave of franchise reform would entropically
