Soil is for Aristocrats
What the Moldbuggian 'elves' get wrong
There have been a slew of opinion pieces trickling out ever since Right Wing Body Building made waves. The American Mind published the latest one with other hit pieces from other heirs of Buckley being posted the antifa friendly Daily Beast. These hit pieces always follow a similar formula:
"Yes our left wing enemies are bad BUT what we really need to worry about is these Right Wing Body Builders"
The reasons differ a bit but are broadly all about it either being a distraction from the very serious business that these paid conservative shills write about OR they attack it as some kind of Christian heresy to not want to be a fat slob like the rest of the population.
The co-ordinated nature of these piece should highlight the behind the scenes fear that RWBB sparks - the paid conservative shill class is terrified of the Bronze Age inspired frogs online who like to pump iron.
Recently a similar attack has been launched by elements of what I think of as the moldbuggian right. It turns out these people have decided that any sentiments right wing frogs may have about homesteading or leaving our failing cities amounts to complete defeatism and are to be attacked repeatedly. They are also under the impression any sentiments in support of the drive are the equivalent as to offering it as political solution, even when it is not.
The similarities here are apparent - both the conservative shills scared of the RWBB and the moldbuggian right are not able to see the forest for the trees.
Most online frogs aren't trying to become the next IFBB pro. What they are inspired to do by RWBB is take lifting seriously and get in shape. They MOG the opposition by being in the top 5% of humans. Just working out a few times with a basic program in the gym puts you miles ahead of masses. It hones your mind and discipline through the hard repetitive work. It breeds an appreciation for beauty and what the body is capable of. It is body politik.
The homestead option, espoused in part by Raw Egg Nationalist - himself a RWBB should be viewed in the same way. Of course RWBBs know that lifting itself does not get us to a better state of affairs but it shifts our minds and hardens our resolve and in our personal lives, the real lives we live offline it is hugely beneficial. It is an ideal to aspire towards and even if we never step on stage. The homestead ideas and lusting is no different. Maybe anon never moves to the rural bliss of fantasy but instead he gets some bees in his backyard and shares honey with his neighbors. Maybe he has a few chickens and can spark up conversations about the globalist threat with someone else.
For all the posturing I see from elements of the buggian right they seem to lack the understanding that to some extent for many people this is the 'space' that they can grow into. Recently on Twitter I have seen a slew of odd accounts attack the idea of working with hands or growing own food as peasant level. How funny, this sounds like the same snark one hears from the actual soyface who sneers in the same way. "Why cook your own food, you can get all this great takeaway from Uber eats". This is real larping as an 'aristocrat': the reframing of consumption. This is the petty bourgeois mentality of the merchant but whole sections of the frog right are seemingly absorbing this energy.
The actual traditional aristocrats of old were of the land. Of blood and soil. A real connection to it mattered to them. They may not have dirtied their hands after a while but that perhaps led to their corruption and easy defeat at the hands of the merchant unlanded class. It is hardly within scope to delve into the depth of that particular surrender but those divorced of the land certainly seem to care about it less. Many of our immigrant classes don’t understand the white appreciation of nature. Muir’s sentiments are as foreign to them as other high trust behaviors.
The moldbuggian right are correct in their assertion that working the land on a homestead is not a political solution. It may amount to a political act for some but without the rampant murder of PolPot it really can’t solve the problems. The same is true of bodybuilding. Crushing iron in the gym and being strong enough to break the hands of the HR department in a handshake doesn’t magically remove their power over you. It remains a confused line of attack that the moldbuggian right is going after - many people will benefit from raising their own chickens or teaching their children how to grow a tomato plant. The theme of returning to a simpler existence is one that has been recurrent throughout human story telling. A realization of the value.
People would do to remember well that those who conquered the vast expanses of Western America were driven by the same sentiments that motivate our people today. Space, land and a chance to build something. Along the way everything else came as well. The soil is not to be sneered at.
