Neoreaction, feminism, con artists

I hate her cuz I ain’t her. Slutever’s Karley Sciortino on Writing About Sex for Anna Wintour via @cynthiacbell

I’ve long been a fan of Mikayla NovakThe False Feminist Economics Methodenstreit: Competition versus Cooperation “That feminists vary between each other is most starkly manifested in the libertarian feminism tradition which, in its modern guise, has close economic affinities with the Austrian school of economics.”

Reminds me of this:

“A con artist simply takes advantage of this hubris by finding the beliefs in which we are most confident — those we’re least likely to question — and enlisting them in advancing his or her agenda.” In other words, humility makes us better bullshit detectors, by @brainpicker

As I’ve been bombarded with racial slurs from alt-right people and neoreactionaries on Twitter, it seems to me that Rothbard was right.

18th Century “liberalism” was “the party of hope, of radicalism, of liberty, of the Industrial Revolution, of progress, of humanity; the other [party] was Conservatism, the party of reaction, the party that longed to restore the hierarchy, statism, theocracy, serfdom, and class exploitation of the old order.

And nothing has really changed.
