Because Guenon was right. We live in an age characterized by sheer quantity and by the vary nature of ever increasing quantity of things, especially people, we see a sinking towards the lowest common denominator, which in turn, also sinks lower and lower as quantity increases. The laws of gravity which keep us trapped on the lower bound are the same as they’ve always been. It’s the bound that’s gotten lower.

It feels as though experience is now detached from local context, meaning there is no particularly "unique" experience a Frenchman has that an Englishman doesn't. There is no country with a unique culture, it is all a blue of vague office work, supermarkets, rental apartments, online dating, posting on some kind of forum. Furthermore, while Zola or Orwell could visit a poor area and give voice to the voiceless, portraying their lives with empathy and acute observational skills, these voiceless people now express themselves online rendering their representation by an outsider irrelevant. It is no coincidence that women now dominate the list of newly published books (something like 95% of new novels are published by females), considering that the topic of sex is now the only means to captive a jaded, weary, atomised audience, ideally if the sex is nominally taboo (e.g., BDSM) which is particularly of interest to superficially edgy young women who want to self-insert as the awkward, frumpy girl who nonetheless attracts Chad ("w-what could he see in little old me?") and experiences Serious Emotional Turmoil in her feelings towards him. All but the most aesthetically pleasing, extroverted, marketable (to females) male Chad writers are now cast aside much in the same way most men are now cast aside in the job market or in dating. For every Knausgaard who makes it (with the help of female publishers and marketing assistants etc, who would all love to fuck him) there are two hundred depressed, solitary, resentful beta males who can't hope to publish their historically intriguing, or otherwise distinct (if somewhat autistic) novels. What does the modern man even experience any more? Definitely not sex, likely just living with his parents or in a rented room, going to some soul-crushing job where he is forced to act meekly and subserviently to his female manager (who treats him like a pitiful, naive younger brother), and sperging out over the internet in his free time in the hope that some form of societal collapse is imminent. That is, the white male author. There are of course plenty of non-white authors who on the one hand strike a pose as being masculine and having nothing to do with those boring old white guys in ivory towers, but on the other hand write copiously about the tragedy of walking into a town which has been 99% white for millenia and being looked at a bit funny (which wouldn't happen should a white man take a trip through Tanzania, of course). The novel is dead. Culture is dead. Society is dead. The best you can do is isolate yourself, hoard money, and watch with bitterness as everything collapses around you.

Its about the change in identity formation. Authenticity was the basis for forming your identity for maybe the last 300 years. This one was that your outside mask, needed to fit your inside mask. And then you'd go about the process of creating your outside mask, that construction would require you to innovate in order to more accurately show your insides. The one we have now is profilicity identity formation. Which requires you to conform your inside mask to the outside mask you display to the world, or your profile. Think about why rock has been redoing the old subgenres in rock for the last 20 years. Instead of creating a new style to show your inner self. You take an old style and conform yourself to that genre.

This is precisely what is happening.

Being a narcissist myself, I'm impervious to being emotionally wounded by criticism. After reviewing both the good and the bad, I took /Lit/'s advice and fixed the tense-switching, will soon be shilling my shit all over this place and trying to link up with other authors.

Trouble is, not every author is a bipolar maniac who can shrug off unkind words from bad-faith reviewers. Imagine being some dude who has worked on a book for years, doesn't really have anyone to show it to other than mom and his family. They like it. He wants more opinions and posts it on Reddit, but he's a 4channer, so maybe his book offends a blue hair on /r/writing and he's banned.

So he comes here thinking he could get a more accepting environment, but instead people rip his shit apart. Bro is never escaping his wagie cagie, he'll put the draft back on the shelf and forget about it.

I don't know I'm taking this from HG Moeller's new book, he essentially says we should roll with it because it's dynamic and is best suited for such an accelerated form of capitalism. But I'm not sold desu, its not a creative form of identity and furthermore I think it's why people get depressed and anxious from social media, because it puts pressure on you to conform even though it's impossible to ever truly conform perfectly.

This is how dead internet began. People stopped interacting with others because the pressure is not worth it. So they don't participate.

Think of how many authors or writers lurk here every once-in-a-while and see a thread ripping into someone like Waldun with people dropping sexual comments about him, violent comments, I mean, most people wouldn't want to take the chance to put themselves out there like that for blind hatred.

There is a big gap between the two most common internet-brain types... Reddit and 4Channers... there is nothing in the middle for those who are positive-minded but also based in a reality that thrives when truly free speech is allowed.

Instead, you have Reddit(Echochamber) and then 4Chan(Battleground), neither good for an emerging non-globohomo author to thrive on.

It has to do with the profile aspect of each I think, every other social media has a username at least and that makes your username the identity inside of the social network which then forces the pressure on the subject to make themselves try and fit that identity. On here there's no identity or ego being filtered through the social network so then it's nothing but the id talking. Probably the best way to castrate the online social profile network is to detach yourself from your online identity.

There's this aspect — about aspiring authors on /lit/, which is unfortunate and relevant — but there's also just the general conditions for discussing new works on here.
The lack of any serious discussion of books released post- 2008 is a causality of the same reticence by anons to deal with 4chan's hyper cynicism. How many times can the same modern or postmodern or classic texts be discussed here before anons yearn for fresh meat? It makes sense to want more, to want to dive in and explore what's new, but who wants to suffer irreverent, hyper-critical slings and arrows to do so? How will that ever feel like it's worth the trouble? It's exhausting and demoralizing and hinders learning and growth.

You know what's interesting and (relatively) new, OP? Autofiction. After decades of postmodernism and its increasingly meta tone, contemporary authors are going down a new path where, instead of authors or the text referencing themselves and meta-textually interacting with others, they're exploring a serious blend between fiction and nonfiction. Formally, this is really cool, and hasn't been explored hardly at all compared to the shticks of modernism/postmodernism. (To be clear, I'm not heralding autofiction as the second coming of Christ or anything, just using it as an example.)

So, why aren't authors like Rachel Cusk or Ben Lerner being deified on here, like Wallace and Pynchon before them? Nobody feels like putting their enthusiasm out there and getting rekt for it. Threads discussing autofiction or autofictional authors on here don't even get far enough to debate its formal progression or artistic merit. From what I've seen (when it's even mentioned), its lampooned for being narcissistic or derivative, as if labelling it these things is a substitute for a real conversation about it. (These cynical anons also seem totally oblivious to how narcissistic postmodernism seemed in its day. No self-awareness whatsoever.)

TL; DR: locking actual discussions behind the gate and key of cynicism and hyper-criticism stagnates discussion and growth.
This is what's happening in politics.
This is what's happening on the internet.
This is what's happened to/lit/.

The "unique" experience of life is just a story that hasn't been told yet, due to the reasons you listed.

If you looked around this place, you wouldn't believe anyone is living life by the seat of their pants anymore. It's all so stale.

I literally sold porn online from like 21-22 and made 10k a month living like a degenerate the entire time. Fast cars, living in cool places, banging so many girlfriends.

After I wrote my 1st book, I managed to get out of the lifestyle of doing cocaine. This lead to having my 1st child, which then I decided to quit porn and write my 2nd book.

Fucking 8 years later I'm finally finishing my 2nd book, so there are definitely some people who do not believe society is dead yet. There is still a counter-culture and people keeping the dream alive.

Just need more bros to actually believe in themselves and produce more works of art.

I will check out the autofiction. The way you have eloquently stated the ebb and flow of the discourse on here is amazing. How many Infinite Jest posts can we have?

For an author like myself, the only way I feel I will get readers is through buying ads places. Like you wrote, spending your time on here... is it worth the vitriol and hyper-critical remarks about your work? While the free speech is beautiful to have, the userbase of the website is so demoralized and blackpilled that their default state is to suffocate and choke the creativity out of this place.

So far, the only answer I have, is to just be more positive and encourage people on here more. I try, but very, very few authors openly admit to posting here.

It's another episode of narcissist grotesquely claims to be a victim because he cannot into humility. We told you why your novel was shit, nobody said we had to deliver the truth in a nice way to not hurt your feelings. The tense switching was just the tip of the iceberg and merely cleaning that up will not solve the problem of your novel being unengaging. But this is a "bad faith" categorized review, right? You need to follow the most basic beginner advice and throw out the majority of your pointless intro. A visit to the car insurance agency is not a full fledged dialogue worthy event, it is 2-4 sentences. You should condense the mundane expository interactions that are non essential. Reading about insurance is just as boring in 2-4 sentences as it is for a whole bloated dialogue. Better yet, just axe them entirely.

I'm author type 2. A quiet 800,000 words written in journals that I know are all shit. An additional 1.5-2 million words shitposted into the wind online. You missed me 5 years ago when I was 50-100k words in and floated my early writings. I received a ton of negativity but also a ton of productive advice. It made me aware of how far I had to go on my writing journey to produce something that wasn't crap. It didn't stop me from writing, it made me a better writer.

The other vital ingredient is life experience. Even if I was a more technically proficient writer I did not possess the life experience to write an engaging novel. Hell, I think I barely qualify now. There's a reason most novels are written after 30 and it is not for a lack of skill, but a lack of perspective.

I'm only hard on this spammer because of the naked reality of the quality of his novel. It does him no favors to not have someone honestly point out its flaws. It's mostly pissing into the wind though. He doesn't have the temperament for character driven novel writing, but he is a unique dude himself. I'm trying to put him off this specific venture because he is so ill suited for it. But, he is certainly not ill suited for another form of writing. I tried to suggest to him the megpill. He seems like the perfect fit for stream of consciousness ranting rather than the structure of a character novel. I don't know, his energy belongs somewhere and I really am rooting for him to find where it clicks, but my fiction standards outweigh my sympathy.

I hate propping up meme artists on the merit of their facade over their work. I left this board for 3 months after the very first waldun thread in disgust. When you promote artists for all reasons other than the content of their work you end up in a darkness of your own creation.

Perhaps being attuned to one's mediocrity is the best way to stand out. Not many people like the idea of being mediocre, but you are, and you need to realise that. You're not special, you don't deserve your own thread on 4chan. If everyone on this site could understand that, the quality of posts would improve. They would have enough structure to actually guide conversation in a meaningful way. Instead you get thirstbait, wojaks, and "Thoughts on ______" posts which any retard can make. You get retards following the path of least resistance, but they wouldn't take such a path if they had a different destination. Instead of thinking "I'm gonna make a difference with this 4chan post, this will be the one, I'm gonna fix the board by criticising it", you could think "you know what, I'm a piece of shit. I'm just not gonna post". And then you don't post. You save it for when you have a truly meaningful idea. It's not that there aren't new ideas, it's that the old ones oversaturate the ideas market and give no voice to the new ones. I'm pulling this all out of my ass but someone else has probably said it before.

If you’re born poor, there is no good reason to keep living. Life for anyone who isn’t rich in the post-God world is nothing but incessant struggle without any purpose. You can’t even enjoy the journey towards nothingness because you’re too concerned with survival. You’re deprived of the great sensory pleasures derived from travelling the world with no concerns or living in a highly comfortable house. All you have is sex, and if you’re unattractive, then you have nothing.

No, because it’s in your head. All 2016 did was focus whatever pathetic attempts at making noise (because that’s all it really was, whether talking, vlogging, tweeting, YouTubing, writing, music, whatever it was all just constant fucking noise) just turned and focused on politics instead. Politics is what you do when if you don’t, you’re going to start fighting. Since everything is political all the time it means everyone is always on the verge of fighting and what’s worse is it’s been marketized into a system which produces interest and then reinvests its interest in itself. The tumor expands until every waking moment is focused on the size and inconvenience of this god damn tumor.

It's just perception, humans are input output machines, that's it. I have access to all these aesthetics and ideas, but almost nobody will get it. It could be used as some sort of marker.

Wrong, even things as seemingly insignificant as infrastructural objects and traffic signs vary a bit in their designs across nations. And often times if someone is rhetorically gifted and talks in your native languge chances are that this speaks more intimate to you, because after all that's your most authentic way of being, whether you like it or not. Just look into so-called liminal spaces on youtube, all these things speak to a western and primarily north American nostalgia, while russian liminal spaces contain these commie blocks which then trigger their nostalgia.

That's why you had very distinct subcultures, literary currents, etc. The internet was a kind of ecological catastrophe for memes, a free for all of ideas that led to a more or less stable, but very stale meme landscape. Think about it, trends get old and die in a matter of weeks, and you can find modern "homages" to just about anything with a click, and those old, venereated ideas, stiffle evolution and innovation.

Why would society collapse just because young men are being enslaved? Slavery is happening for thousands of years, the only difference is that ancient slaves were locked by chains and modern ones are locked in their bedrooms playing video games. Actually since modern slaves have illusion of freedom and access to almost unlimited bread and circus, society is much less likely to collapse, being more stable.

I've been thinking about this a lot lately, and hear me out.
The party mechanisms of the Democratic Party have demonstrably proven that they are the party of the elites within America. I don't mean in some sort of /pol/ "lefties are the /real/ racists" sense, I mean that the structure of the Democratic Party makes it impossible for a far left candidate like Bernie Sanders to run for president. Winning within the Democratic Party is impossible without the informed consent of the people who run the Democratic Party, which is a wealthy business class no matter how many brown billionaires are a part of them.

At the same time, Donald Trump has conclusively demonstrated that the Republican Party, structurally speaking, can provide a platform even for a black swan demagogue who spends the entire primary shitting on everything the Republican Party nominally holds dear. This is because running for president as a Republican is based purely on popular vote.

So any serious left-wing candidate, one that actually wants half a chance at a platform, should run Republican. It doesn't matter if you're an outright communist who wants to push to create a Maoist state, you still have significantly better chances at the presidency as a Republican candidate than as a Democrat.

I know Americans aren't going to realize this for a while, because they're slow and tribalistic like that, but what happened in the last election, with the business classes unifying behind Biden, has completely changed the structure of American politics. It's no longer that the Republican Party is "right wing", the Democrats are "left wing", it's that now the Republican Party represents the party of the people, the Democrats the party of the elites.

Any serious left wingers (assuming anyone important browses /lit/) should start planning ahead now to field an unapologetic Socialist in the Republican Primaries. Even if it isn't successful, it would completely shift the overtone window of politics within the USA.

Unlikely. The issue with America is that those races (whites and blacks in particular) form an exploited part of the national psyche.

My impression, and I'm not American but I've worked and lived there for some years, is that white people are extremely restricted by a complicated set of social rules. They don't feel themselves permitted to fight, cuss, fuck, or do anything fun really, and usually live miserable lives of petty social status competition. This leads them to project a lot of their insecurities and inadequacies on a kind of cartoonish black caricature thats become the main figure of their national mythology. Whites are socialized to think that hitting on women is sexist, for example, and if they step out of line you have movements like #metoo which brutally force them back into the puritanical line. As a result they project these repressed desires on blacks, who are portrayed as hyper-sexual. Whites are socialized to constantly work and chase status symbols (car, house, school, and so on), and the whites who refuse to participate are treated quite harshly (called white trash, genetic failures, lazy, stupid, etc.), so as a result many whites fetishize black poverty as somehow special, soulful, "cool", or something like that. In Freudian terms I often think of America as a single consciousness, where puritanical white people play the role of super-ego and blacks the role of the id, and individual Americans will often act out one of these rolls in their day-to-day life (something I noticed is many middle class white people will adopt """black""" slang when they go clubbing or "cut loose" as a way of psychologically allowing themselves to participate in R&R). America likes to think of itself as many different cultures, but really its a totalizing state of psychosis which has turned every one of its citizens into a mad-man.

(cont)
But what especially tipped me off is how if you ever hang out around Americans, and I invite my fellow humans in the old world to observe this for themselves, they'll literally adopt an entire different vocabulary, posture, and persona when they go out to clubs or parties. Give a white american a couple of beers and they'll start throwing around "black people slang" and calling things "bomb" or "fire" and "hollering" at "them hoes", and the girls will start "twerking" with their "baes" and clicking their tongues. Observe how an American texts, if they want to express sass they'll literally send a gif of a fat black woman being sassy because that's how engrained it is in their psychology. Once their fetishistic carnival of negroid imitation (and how similar it is to the primitive shamanism of many ancient cultures who will don a totemic mask before engaging in orgiestic frenzy) has worn off they'll be right back to their old bland sociopathic selves.

It's like hell itself spawned some sort of soulless automation that isn't actually capable of real depth of feeling or soul, so it just blindly imitates what it perceives as human behaviour without any understanding of why. Romance becomes a sexual numbers game. Status becomes a competition in gaudy flashiness. Sports are about raw physical prowess and violence over virtuosity of movement and technique. Incapable of spiritual understanding American churches are fixated on emotional hysteria and feel-good platitudes. There is no easy way out of this uniquely American dilemma.

>There is a better hypothesis to explain the peculiarities of the American temperament. It is the fact that the states are pervaded by the negro, that most striking and suggestive figure. Some states are particularly black, a fact that may astonish the naive European, who thinks of America as a white nation. It is not wholly white if you please, but piebald. It cannot be helped, it just is so. What is more contagious than to live side by side with a rather primitive people? Go to Africa and see what happens. When it is so obvious that you stumble over it, you call it going black. But when it is not so obvious it is explained as ‘the sun’ … It is much easier for us Europeans to be a trifle immoral, or at least a bit lax, because we do not have to maintain the moral standard against the heavy downward pull of primitive life. The inferior man has a tremendous pull because he fascinates the inferior layers of our psyche, which has lived through untold ages of similar conditions…. He reminds us not so much our conscious as our unconscious mind - not only of childhood but of prehistory, which would take us back not more than about twelve hundred years so far as the Germanic races are concerned…. (Collected Works, Vol. 10, p. 507)

>Well, the White American, because he lives with the Negro, must really repress his ‘primitive’ instincts, much more so than the European, and this makes the American more unconscious than the European …

>We often discover with Americans that they are tremendously unconscious of themselves. Sometimes they suddenly grow aware of themselves, and then you get these interesting stories of decent young girls eloping with Chinamen or with Negroes, because in the American that primitive layer, which with us is a bit difficult, with themis decidedly disagreeable, as it is much lower down.

Disagree. I think this temperament has been consciously stroked and encouraged by the eternal Jew, who conspicuously (despite being the unarguable ruling class of America) is never mentioned in an otherwise race-obsessed society.

Without this malignant influence on America's public psyche, both blacks and whites would probably recognize themselves as a common ethnos. There is very little genetic or behavioral difference between the two anyways. What difference I have observed seems entirely effected and performative.

>Turning to imitative development, an intriguing picture is emerging in which children exhibit quite surprising susceptibility to over-copying of others in the face of apparently obvious perceptual evidence of causal irrelevance.

>Finally, there is the question of control of imitation. As the prior paragraph indicates, one new and interesting set of issues here concerns ontogenetic changes—a lessening of control, towards more ‘mindless’ blanket copying as children develop. However, in both human infants and apes, other studies are mapping a widening range of conditions in which individuals express selectivity in their social learning strategies. These include social factors such as the intentions of, and constraints on, the model and physical factors such as principles of causality. In addition, our preliminary results suggest that chimpanzees may be restricted in their capacity to modify and upgrade the first approaches to a task they learn, in contexts where children show a readiness to upgrade, facilitating a process of cumulative cultural change.

> However, we note that the latter findings concern infants and, again perhaps surprisingly, it is in the older and more cognitively mature children (and even adults) that we find more ‘blanket’ copying. These intriguing, apparent paradoxes should drive further research to resolve them in coming years.

Heidegger basically said at the end of his life that philosophy and all meaningful human creation were at an end and that:

>Only a god can still save us. I think the only possibility of salvation left to us is to prepare readiness, through thinking and poetry, for the appearance of the god or for the absence of the god during the decline; so that we do not, simply put, die meaningless deaths, but that when we decline, we decline in the face of the absent god.

>Another thing that struck me was the great influence of the Negro, a psychological influence naturally (naturally), not due to the mixture ofblood. The emotional way of American expresses himself, especially theway he laughs, can best be studied in the the illustrated supplements of the papers; the inimitable Teddy Roosevelt laugh is found in its primordial formin the American Negro. The peculiar walk with loose joints, or the swinging of the hips so frequently observed in Americans, also comes from the Negro.American music draws its main inspiration from the Negro, and so does the dance…. The vivacity of the average American which shows itself… in his extraordinary love of talking - the ceaseless gabble of American papers is an eloquent example of this - is scarcely to be derived from his Germanic forefathers, but is far more like the chattering of a Negro village. The almost total lack of privacy and the all-devouring mass sociability remind one of primitive life in open huts, where there is complete identity with all members of the tribe….
>This infection by the primitive can, of course, be observed just as well in other countries, though not to the same degree and not in this form. In Africa, for example, the white man is a diminishing minority and must therefore protect himself fromthe Negro by observing the most rigorous social forms, otherwise herisks ‘going black’. If he succumbs to the primitive influence he is lost. But in America the Negro just because he is in a minority is not a degenerative influence, but rather onewhich, peculiar though it is, cannot be termedun favourable -unless one happens to have a Jazz phobia.

There was a brilliant work done by a Jungian...I have been searching for it but cant find it;

This Man decided to experience America as a Black Man , he himself a White, and so adopted all the Social behaviours Black Folk had ( this was in the 50's or 60s) and he starts seeing things from the Black perspertive, how insane the behaviours of both Black and White were in relation to each other, how meticulouse Blacks had to be, how they lived in a state of psychic terror and he realized how Unconscious,violent and sexual Whites were becoming but suppresed it; with this experience he had a wider and complete picture of what he himself was suppresing and not paying attention too.

Not really that odd in the conspiratorial sense. It's a mix of 1) platforms making sweeping changes that deterred people from making content that wasn't in the millions of views. A bunch of people quit because it simply wasn't worth it to make content if they could not monetize. The truth is that making quality content (well-edited things with good ideas and high effort) takes a lot of time and in many cases money, so as absurd as it may seem to the guy enjoying the content, spending all this time making content and getting a bunch of comments by 14 year olds in return isn't that great of a deal.
2) There was definitely a push by the companies to turn their platforms into advertising platforms, so this is where it gets "conspiratorial" except there's nothing convoluted about it. Most YTers are paid shills now because this is where they're useful. All the semi-famous or famous people holding up a product at any point in their video are being paid to do that. Under the table of course.
3) People have changed. A whole generation of people have jumped online and these people see others as content to consume and nothing else. Millennials grew up buying physical albums and physical shit, so they still had some form of understanding that if you want to enjoy something you're supposed to pay for it. If a millennial pirates something, he's - in his mind - refusing to pay for it. The zoomer defaults to having shit for free. He's just that entitled. So when you're making content today not only you are guaranteed to get 0 money, you might also get assaulted by entitled children who want to tell you how you should change your content so that they enjoy it more - for free of course.
4) Zoomers and well-adapted millennials, it's established by now, will only pay for things with a greater pull than just "content", which boils down to addictive or dysfunctional shit. Pornography, gambling, politically (rage) induced purchases, parasocial relationships (literally paying people on Patreon so they talk to you) and so on.
You can imagine that while if you had a good idea in 2002 the Internet was like a digital golden age America: a land of opportunity. If you have a good idea in 2021 and you look at what's selling, how the internet works, what you need to do to "market yourself" despite an allegedly extensive framework that is structured to offer people EXACTLY what they're looking for, you give up. And it's objectively the right, most sensible thing to do.

Absurd. Buddhism is deeply rooted in empathy. Theories like this, comparing the "primitive" and the "European" are almost always rooted in some sort of projection on the authors part. We look at the world around us, but we can only ever see ourselves.

I've spent plenty of time around different races, lived in many different countries, spent time trying to come to grasps with non-western ontologies... its true there are differences between the European mind and non-European mind, but these are social differences and rooted in a broader history and linguistic basis. Often the same 'types' of people appear in every society in varying degrees, and a White or a Black Frenchman is both mentally and physiologically different from a White or Black Anglo. Within a country, the differences between them are rooted in history, not innate in any sense I can discern. Race is, 95% at least, a social construct.

I can't be the only one who wants mass death and ruin, can I?

Maybe if everything is stagnated, if everything is dried up and wasted... a little spilling of blood would be the thing to lubricate the gears of history, eh?

Would it be so wrong to wish for a major war? I'm talking something that would alter the global order. Like a war between the European Union and Turkey, or even the big daddy of them all: a war between the United States and China. A war that, no matter who won and who lost, the status quo of the planet would be inevitably altered. Something that you couldn't just walk away from with business as it was before. Something that would permanently alter the nature of the world.

There's a few problems with that plan.
>The Republican primaires are only open to registered Republicans in most states
There goes 80% of people who would actually vote for a socialist.
>The candidate would have to beat the rest of the Republicans in a popular vote
Not happening because of above. The only socialist getting any votes in a Republican primary is one who is also a Christian nationalist, which is contrary to leftist goals anyways.
>You shift the Overton window
Not if the media and elites have a say. Anyone associated with the Republicans is already painted as racist to try to drive leftists into the arms of the Democrats. A socialist would cause them to go full frenzy mode. They'd be labeled as a Nazi, even more than Trump was, and their supporters would be endlessly mocked on Tik Tok and Reddit to prevent anyone young from openly supporting them.
>The Democrats are the party of the elites now
This is true, but they've capitalized on BLM, anti-billionaire rhetoric, anti-gun rhetoric and covid (through their near-total domination of the media) to portray themselves as the protectors of the weak and helpless. That propaganda isn't letting up among normie millennials and zoomers any time soon.
It's a good plan, but it'd never work.

Again, I'm not saying that there aren't differences between the East and West, or that these doesn't manifest in physical characteristics, but I think its more fluid than it is an immutable characteristic. Europeans are naively trusting (and hubristically moralistic), which is why they are so often fooled by moral grandstanding. Chinese are more intelligent and pragmatic than that (cunnings even), but this is the result of centuries of civilization and philosophy, not some innate sociopathy. You should read 'The Book of Tea' by Kakuzo Okakura to better understand the Oriental perspective on this issue. Americans, in particular, are a very stupid and sheepish sort of people, but I find it hard to believe that it's some innate aspect of their DNA and not the result of growing up in a democratic culture that demands strict observance of moral posturing and is constantly propagandized to by manipulative Jews acting in bad faith. I'm a white man, of pure European stock, but even I find Americans incomprehensibly naive in their knee-jerk assumptions about people's innermost characteristics. How is it that I have the same blood as these Yankees, but have such a different perspective? I don't doubt that blood has some effect on the mind, but I think that culture, language, and geography themselves have an effect on molding the race which makes itself felt over generations. For example, I can generally tell the difference between a first generation Asian and a third generation Asian just by observing how they smile and how they laugh. If it was purely biological such a thing would be impossible.
In the case of white vs black Americans, the constant proximity to each other, the shared language, geography, and culture, and the natural mixing of blood should all contribute to shaping them into a common nomos. This is observable in most other colonial countries, Brazil is an obvious example, but in America there is a schizophrenic division which is conscientiously acted out by both Whites and Blacks. Ergo, it must be a psychological feature of the social super-structure, and not the innate effect of blood.

You can't know unless you try. American politics are formulaic, if a hard-left candidate ran on a socialist, non-interventionist policy with the Republican Party it would be a hard enough shock to the system that they might be able to exploit a brief window of confusion while the ruling classes scramble for a solution. Thats how Trump won, and ultimately, its the only way any outsider candidate will be able to win. No matter what used to be the case, the Democrats are now clearly the party of the elite class, and the Republicans are structurally the only voice the people really have in a democratic system. Ignore all previous party history, political posturing, etc. and just look at how the structure of the party works. Republican candidates are fielded through popular vote, Democratic candidates are fielded through elite consensus. This structural difference, moreso than ideological history, will determine the future of American politics.

I can see a "Left" wing candidate arising among the Republicans, if they play their cards right -- which is actually harder than you'd think. However, if they make a strong rallying cry for workers, I think they could win over Republican voters; but, it really cannot come with even a glimmer of higher taxation.

One thing that I constantly see people get wrong, with regards to taxation -- specifically raising it in any regard -- is that it's pretty much agreed upon that the US govt. is inept and inefficient. It wastes billions of taxpayer money; often even losing it, i.e. it's unaccounted for, just vanishing. And people's suggestion to fixing an inefficient govt. is... more money.

Whatever the case, I suppose it can be done, but a Left candidate will have to make capitulations.

I agree. If a socialist candidate came to power (from either side) in the USA, they couldn't be a Jacobin-tier far leftist, but I also see that there's enough discontentment among the white working class in America that they'll vote for a candidate that backs their interests over voting for a candidate because of something Adam Smith said a hundred years ago.

Imagine an isolationist candidate who openly talks about the opiate crises and white deaths of despair, one who says that illegal immigration is being used to undermine the working class and that he wants to nationalize the healthcare industry. The problem with most leftists right now isn't that they want more government control in the economy, or that they want to nationalize certain sectors, it's that they actively push for policies that are harmful to working class workers while treating any criticism of these policies with distain. If a substantial portion of Republicans can be convinced to believe in Q-Anon, I'm sure they can be convinced that nationalizing oil and gas and using the profits to rebuild America's infrastructure is a good idea.

Another idea would be pulling US soldiers out of all foreign wars and bringing them home to work on national revitalization projects, building roads, dams, airports, etc. I don't think any American would oppose this, and the American empire has almost entirely been the project of Washington policy sharks and backroom deals. The issue is that this hypothetical candidate would have to be both very left wing and moderately right wing, too much talk about reparations or free college tuition, for example, and the Republican base is alienated. Too much talk about the suffering of America's white working class, isolationism, and the need to rebuild industry and they will be painted as a Trumpist-NAZI by establishment media. They would need to be unconventional enough that all the normal tricks of American media won't work. They'd also have to be angry, I think, because the one common trend that unites all Americans is a contempt for the people who rule them.

You're right about taxation by the way. Any talk about increasing taxation is absolutely stupid when you have the insane levels of institutionalized corruption that exist in America today. Crack down on corruption and corporate welfare first, don't just pass another bill to the taxpayers. It's a shame this isn't talked about more.

I can assume you don't meet new people often, and the majority, if not all of your social interactions, excluding passive pseudo-social experiences in online echo chambers, are with people you already know. Were this not the case, then you would have surely been aware that there's more to life than your back garden. You've got neighbours living next door; people living in streets you've passed through, and in places you've never been or known existed.
