Going through an embarrassingly long Burroughs phase has equipped me with more knowledge of orgones, occultnik whatsis, and whatever it is -that passes for a counter cultura, circa the 90's maybe? That whole TAZ thing, pirate utopias, magic with a k, centipedes and through burroughs came Psychic TV and industrial music, and a book where I first read Evola, who was inserted between morehippy dippy stuff. I feel like a lot of the reactionaries/alt right/etc. were reading the same shitty books as me as a teen and that hybridized with internet culture.
I think there's a fairly bright line running from Illuminatus! through Ccru to modern esoteric meme stuff.
it seems that way. I also blame comic books.
It's hyperstition all the way down
The Internet mirrors Cyclonopedic conception of oil: dead signifiers compressed and heated to a fluid, surging in rebellion against the Sun.
>probably several reasons: left more prone to seriousness, language-policing, regulatory politics
>cyberpolitics = more like troll hivemind, not serious + unfunny weirdos (who also exist on /pol/ and alt-right)
>problem with the left is classically it's all about humans *using* and *doing* stuff together (democracy! planning! etc)
this is precisely what cybernetics in general, and cyberpolitics in politics, overthrows.
>thinking of it as "using" sth = already in the instrumental-regulatory command network. It's abt Immersing yourself in it.

R/ACC has Gnon. L/ACC is just humanism town.
While it certainly attracts such, on the contrary, I think R/ is more the stopgap to U/. but nihilism is the stopgap of all disillusionment, right? (Nietzsche and all!) I think you can actually read the whole R/U distinction through Nietzsche -- to me it seems R/ACC transvalues simply by switching good and evil (hence identifying as "dark" all the time). But per N. transvaluation is not simply transposing the two but dismantling "evil" as such. Beyond good and evil.
L/ACC forgot the immersion of the very conditions of evaluation within the circuitry...
I would say some aspects of Brassier's work still tend to U/ACC... relentless self-abolitionism in the name of abyssal freedom is very U/ACC?
but I believe your distinction is more useful at this stage
that's an interesting distinction which I've been thinking about recently as well.
I think part of the reason for L/ACC's inadequacy is its failure at the epistemic level.
I want a non-human social theory like Brassier's non-human metaphysic.
R/ACC has Gnon. L/ACC is just humanism town.
I completely agree, and have been wrestling with this. it will be the pressing issue.
all true freedom is self-destruction. the true challenge is comes from accepting this without falling into fatalism, or ignoring it and collapsing into insipid humanism.
> yup. Nietzsche's big insight -- and Ccru's, IMO.
there is much in Metzinger's 'nemocentrism' of worth. but yh we need a nemocentric social theory. Brassier talks of abolishing the 'self' as a block in the transitivity between 'I' and 'we" there is something in the idea of a negative universal: one that is bereft of all +itive content and thus not trucked with current actualities/uniformities: the bare form of saying 'no'
>Kantian critique basically needs be put into total hypertrophic overdrive
>I think Fisher once distinguished between Brassier and L/ACC as 'epistemic' vs 'political' acc
SHE ACCELERATED TOO HARD...
What exactly *is* U/ACC?
R-acc looks towards heterogeneity, patchwork generation, capitalism generating species (plural) of human social orders and also constitutes an evaluative stance (via NRx) towards said orders. Distinct from unconditional accel. which identifies, per D&G, with schizophrenising tendencies of capitalism as such. In "Teleoplexy" Land says accel. maps basic tendency of modernity as "controlled explosion". R-acc interested in orders, unconditional acc just explosive.
(Left-acc., as currently construed, is the position I don't think seriously exists.)

Schizophrenizing tendencies, explosive dynamics.

the internet absolutely does matter and if you don't think it does you've missed the last 10-20 years of politics.
in SE Asia people even take CDs of political stuff from the Internet to distribute in countryside w/o online access
in 2014 waving smartphones in the air and chanting protest songs they dl'd from twitter and other places
you would see how specious this idea of the Internet as all about white westerners is
Because the Internet is a technology, and capacity for its instrumentalisation depends on external conjuncture.
Your original point was that no one uses the Internet apart from "bourgie middle class white kids".
This is empirically so far wrong that it's at flat-earth-theory levels of wrongness.

Meltdown means escape from all control means escape from humanity.
I think technocapital, combined with cybernetic politics tends towards massive distribution, escaping elite control.
So you have to go back to Marx here: Marx says rate of profit tends to 0, and rate of profit is based on mechanisation i.e. in other words when mechanisation is maximalised capitalism ends by definition. Bourgeois control is impossible.
Land likes capital but he's pointing at something after capital*ism*: "planetary commoditronics escaping bourgeois control"
whatever capitalism leads to, like feudalism led to capitalism. Like you said we don't know what form that takes.
the core of accelerationism is just saying: instead of regulating and resisting, go forwards, relentlessly decentralise
but does Land subsist on nothing but plain ice cream?
I tend to have very little patience for ethics, which is why I prefer Land's uncompromising embrace of the prospect in Fanged Nouema writings etc. "What'll happen? Who cares, let's get there first!"
"You lice can go back once more, for tonight anyway, to your filthy beds of tradition which we no longer wish to sleep in"

Many mysteries here...
So how did China use so much cement? First, the country is urbanizing at a historic rate, much faster than the U.S. did in the 20th Century. More than 20 million Chinese relocate to cities each year, which is more people than live in downtown New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago combined. This massive change has taken place in less than 50 years. In 1978, less than a fifth of China’s population lived in cities. By 2020, that proportion will be 60 percent.
Are you the genesis of #RhettTwitter the phyics guy?

outsideness:The 'neo-' in neoreaction, and perhaps even
in neocameralism, means -- roughly -- 'ironical'.
Using this clue, spot the non-neoreactionary:
"Why call it 'the Cathedral'? Cathedrals are glorious expressions of religious devotion. ..."
I'm ODing right now and even I think this whole things smacks of fascism
fascism finds a home in anything that attributes the ravages of capitalism to anything other than capitalism
and the late stuff kind of developed by logical succession -- turn from marx to the right has happened before historically
the exact same weird engagement between anarchists and monarchists and reactionaries
And Deleuze and Guattari's Anti-Oedipus, which despite not being in the MA canon, offers a fuckload of insight into how to have a non-ancap market anarchism.
another fun fact about Sorel I don't mention there: he was (like Land) an East Asia obsessive..in 1 of his last articles ("China") he says "Europe is in great need of a Mongol invasion".
What sort of role did that angle play in the overall architecture of his thought?
1) reacted to Soc Dems claiming capitalism would collapse because China would reject capitalism
2) saw the creation of a world market as overwhelming its Euro creators, not just imperialism
3) tied in with his cyclical theory of moral history (Euros on the decline, Asians on the rise)
in many ways foreshadows Land here in Meltdown

What is rhetttwitter — the black hand of futurity
FROM SUBVERSION TO SUBMERSION
Agree w/ Capital 3 Marx and 90s-Land that revolutionary motor is capital, not labour as such.
Agreed there. Hence the need for unleashing - I simply have a hard time seeing capital as that will overcome its limit alone. The system is increasingly modular, with crisis becoming a regulator in and of itself.
Yeah, there is a cutting, biting deterritorializing edge, but pulling out the stops guarantees the chemical reactions to really kick in. Basically: elites can't stop it, but they are a drag on the productive forces. Best to end them
S&W see neoliberalism as an ideational phenomenon whose hegemony they want to repeat.
The attempt at repetition is embarrassing cargo cult stuff (as w/ similar L/ACC tries)

>hyperstition is, imo, a symptom of cybernetics as social positive feedback cycle (CCRU had good analysis on this).
#RhettTwitter is the anti-praxis of U/ACC, a hot subculture charting a course for its own dissolution

My incredibly muddled vision is basically panther modern insurrectionists breaking the containment protocols and unleashing vironomic forces in full --> global disequilibrium -->complete market anarchy mobilized by amplifying machinic processes, dissolving all organic bodies. Maybe there is communism at the end of that, who knows.
I agree w/ this in abstract (minus communism in orthodox sense - end is overcoming of humanity) ...

#RhettTwitter Starter Pack:
internet is planetary reality-fracking tool, purposed with

Make a rhettpill
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - VIRTUE WITHOUTH NAZBOL MEMES IS IMPOTENT!!!
Maybe confused understanding of "politics": party politics is a day-by-day game, and that's the game L/ACC unsuccessfully tries to play. On a century timescale, 2 forms of "politics" matter, categorised as social history and psychomoral history (Nietzsche's "great politics").
This is the "game" U/ACC tries to play, to the extent that it accepts human subjectivity at all.
and yeah beware of the left siding w/ moral cnsrvatism.
imo this is why U/ACC emphasis on siding with tech is important. cybernetics chops out govt's ability to enforce moralism
when people talk about "planning" never forget that some people's plan is puritanism and they just need access to controls
things just got creepy.
U/ACC as a mode of analysis observes the 'megamachine' (the regimented assemblage of the capitalism, society, culture economy, the state) as a sort of cybernetic machine, and traces the way forces within it compound in a way that breaks down control systems, overcodes, etc - things rush past their limits. A U/ACC method, likewise, would seek ways of amplifying those forces.
The interrelations between society, culture, the economy, and tech development all operate as force multipliers for one another, all escalating in complexity and running in contradiction to the reason and rational of the state. They become delirious and break apart the states and other archaic institutions.
So what's at stake is basically things spinning out of control.
Bizarre understanding of deter. and reter. Contingency, risk are reflections of uncertainty and will thus place on individual or micro-org scale due to knowledge problems regarding organization, coordination, distribution – large body politics + power plays cannot cope with these forces the way free markets can.
U/ACC is a superior form of barbarism
That's part of the blood-red beauty of it
we keep reposing the same questions, a linear materialism claims these are constantly trying to close the book on 1848's project in Paris, not accounting for the acceleration that has caused them to be posed at a higher, deadlier, more alienated scale each time. Acceleration is some sense hegel's object-state applied to all hegemonic structures, clinamenically impcting each other through deep time, each hit more damaging, unable to stp
>I imagine this actually maps quite well onto Neo-Schumpeterian periodizations - the infamous K-Wave move
this would actually be cool as hell : atomic swerve, to world-system oscillation, and back again
>I'm trying to imagine what it would look like, lol
I'm thinking it bears a lot of relations to mieville's map of the immer from embassytown - distributed, distorted need to think of whole new units of measurement, like James Scott's frictional quanta - dromometers lol
>Reminiscent of the spinal catastrophism timeline towards the end of Fanged Noumena, in a way
A real Left Accelerationism would accept that we are already superfluous to the production of material wealth.
The trailed blazed by L/ACC into Gramscian hegemony is irreconcilably statist. This is not only implied via the invoking of Gramscian hegemony itself, but clearly stated by S+W in their calls to mimic the MPS filiation of proto-neoliberalism.
In the entire manifesto this is their only engagement w/ non-West.
Ok, a naive sentence about China and literally 4 words on Fanon. lol

A tour of the #RhettTwitter HQ:
A giant screen on the wall is displaying the latest @Outsideness seminar, beamed directly from the urcC orbital cyclone-zone. Buckling beneath his headset, he gazes in horror, confusion, templex satisfaction as the stream cuts and skips forward and backward in time.
Eventually the experience goes full body. Eyes aren't enough. his skin is conscripted, fractal video in a literally immersive liquid medium
Every video urcC could rescue from NCR&sh is being played at once. Listen closely to the roar, you can hear a woman speaking Mandarin...
yes, "I" started with the cliche "the end" text.
But if zero is always at the end, how does one remember it? How is one able to describe it's being so intimately? Who determined the order? To know ones path is to be cognizant of each turn, but what if one decides to go right, instead of making an automatic left? Just wondering.
>> 0 is the absolute end. there will be no memories when the universe reaches that stage of maximum entropy.
"at the end there was always 0. then, in the beginning, 1 came up"; a memory, who's? Regardless, 1 came after 0, according to this author.
>>a theory, not a memory, by an insider of the process.
Still, ..based on inside information, this insider theorises a loop, no? zero to one and back? Might it be a constant loop? Like eternity? Knowing one can be singular, experience, interact, connect, expand until the point of contraction to 0

Communization vs #RhettTwitter to determine which reading of Deleuze & Guattari wins
i want to push a probably controversial statement here: that neoreaction is dead. (focus on the *neo* part, of course) understood - as it should - as neocameralism, it has all but disappeared. who is talking about it today? Nick Land, now and then, but even he is more immersed into accelerationism.
as I have been perceiving, the ethno-nationalist branch has either fused with the Alt-Right populist white nationalist program or collapsed back into throne-and-alter paleo-reaction "let's avoid modernity at all costs".
whatever inheritance they keep from Moldbug's canon, it's mostly limited to Carlylean grudges.
am I missing something? are there any futurist-absolutists working with a cryptographic monarchy model?
is anyone planning to influence Lichentstein's or Singapore's model in a more ethno-nationalist direction, without falling back into populism or modernity-aversion?
crypto-monarchy is NRx. Donald Trump's administration most certainly isn't.
even the tech-comm branch is mostly silent. Land's last post on XS that wasn't a scrap note dates from August 2016...
(and it's tellingly on Qwernomics)

once again, where is it?
...unless I'm missing something huge, Neoreaction as neocameralism + patchwork is pretty much dead.
given that state of affairs, I certainly see neocameralism and patchwork to be further developed more in the realm of accelerationism...
outsideness: I'm not sure 'dead' is right.
At least as much "our work here is done."
Neocam needs digesting, before the next push forwards.
This geography resembles Dugin's outlook, Atlantian tech-comm acceleration on one side, Continental trad alt-right/reaction on the other.
"But you'll be in control of Skynet, right?" " Yes Sir" lol
>Skynet will be under its own control, that's for sure.

lol. True. We said that two years ago.
If only they'd listened to us. Never too late.
>well, my point is more that the cause of death is exactly following such steps. there's nothing *neo* about NRx anymore, so it dies.
The neo was the problem. Novelty and reaction are oil and water.
>I guess we agree on what the conflict is, but are on opposite sides.
Opposite sides of what?
The corpse of NRx?
it's not dead it's just resting
with the *neo* well fixed, it was probably the least fascist thing out there. without it, populism took over.
If only half the leftie fearpieces about its influence are true, its leaving quite the spectre.
Moldbug left a pretty completed system with only a kind of speculation that will naturally appear as LARPy left.
That and fighting over which tradition the sacred texts apparently belong in.
Trichtonomy was a pretty bad model from the start. Theos and Altrighters were bound to splinter eventually.
They shared nothing with techrx
The Alt-Right absorbing most of these people provides a perfect opportunity to restablish intellectual sovereignty.
NRx is clearly not just Land, but as an intellectual historian it's tempting to read it in terms of Land's trajectory...
DE served as a vehicle during Land's "wilderness" years. But the wilderness is engulfing the metropolis. Something has changed. The gales of Landianism are blowing across philosophy, and they are gathering into a roar. The paranoia over Land is the consequence...

@rjallain, what the fuck is rhettism
>Rhett put it better than we could: "It's all about the acceleration"
"capitalism strengthens itself with competition"
I guess no one disagrees with that statement, except rabid market liberals
if only people could reach an agreement on every single issue (utopia), then capitalism would instantly dissolve! fortunately, they can't. and, in reality, no production can really take place where everyone agrees. much less the creative destruction that's the essence of capital to the extent that ancient and medieval societies managed to keep some veneer of tacit agreement, capitalism remained un-ignited...and this seems to be the very reason why China didn't develop capitalism before Europe did, even having more tech and better brains.
but, not only capitalism thrives with competition "within" itself, but every antagonism against it inevitably becomes its fuel.in fact, the greatest danger Proudhon identified in market economies was that it could bring all societies to a state of "common-ism"
the greatest danger capital could pose to itself was if it lead to an worldwide agreement.seriously, if a sound monetary and fiscal policy had been carried during early 20th century, would we have had WW2? most likely not....and thus no Internet, no digital computer, heck, not even Bitcoin.
the rocks in the way of capital is exactly what makes it faster and swifter. it's almost as if it engineered them...
"Nothing brought to bear against capitalism can compare to the intrinsic antagonism it directs towards its own actuality"
so, yeah, by all means, inciting anti-capitalism (and many other forms of dissent) is a hell of a way to accelerate capital.
if you disagree, well, welcome to the team.
