The Cult of The Extroverts
"The synthetic right," Dimes Square, white nationalist secrecy, party bros, and the yuppie clique as pseudo-anti-liberalism
I once attended a drunken party for karaoke in Chinatown, Philadelphia in 2017. The liberal hipster acting as a white nationalist, “Claus Brinker,” otherwise known as Nathan, showed up late. I, along with my friends Phil and Doug Huntington, sang the lyrics of Aqua’s “Doctor Jones.” He thought Aqua was cringe, and couldn’t take us seriously. Another drunken friend used banter against Claus, and said, “I know who you are, Nathan! The ADL is coming after you!”
The next day, I received an angry email from him. Nathan wrote,
“...it is really not appropriate to tell someone’s real name to others without their permission if they are using a pseudonym. Please do not do this to me or anyone else again.”
It’s not that he was working out of spite and envy because we were having “fun.” Meeting up together as Counter-Currents associates wasn’t about being in a “racist frat,” as Philadelphia Active Club leader “Shiro” once said. But we just had to laugh out loud at the racist version of the Ducktails theme song or listen to No Remorse’s This Time The World because it was in your face without liberal care. The Right Stuff.biz was quite popular with its “pol parties,” and everyone had to make their racist version of a Blink-182 song. Nathan was trying to prove something. He was assuming there were “rules” for being “radical.” Rather, I was upset at his condescending behavior. Supposedly, we are playing a game of “secret spies,” where at any second, the state can come and fire us from our managerial jobs because we said mean things about Jewish people or believe blacks are stupid.
A few years later, it turns out that Nathan, the curly-mustache hipster who loved Boyd Rice and Julius Evola, was an Anti-fascist informant. He reported everything to a local Antifa group, and he now considers himself a part of “a fight against racism.”
It’s so ironic for all the things he contributed as a mole. Nathan worked closely with Greg R. Johnson at The New York Forum selling Johnson’s books, he was close with Brandon Kissam; a gay libertarian turned white nationalist VDare reporter, he attended American Renaissance, and often appeared on The Daily Shoah as a buddy-buddy comedy guest. All of those secret club games came crashing down when he repented from those sins of the mid-2010s and became another closed liberal in the DC area. Nathan got close to Greg Johnson’s circle, only then to denounce it all once the party was over. Why would he send that email to me, not any other associate, and call me out for my confidence and pride that we have nothing to lose? It’s like he was gaslighting me this entire time, and actually, he was the one who was breaking the law of “consent” by reporting everyone to Antifa!
What was the point of any of our virtue ethics, if it was just some cool factor to be hip and social? The difference between the extroverted and the introverted is the main division between child and adult, poser and intellect, consumer and artist, gossiper and truth-teller, and all binaries between nonreproduction (the extrovert) and production (the introvert).
I have already written about this white nationalist obsession with secret clubs and hipsterism on Colin Liddell’s Neokrat blog. I thought it was over by the time Unite The Right was announced as an utter failure and YouTube “bloodsports” were the rage in 2019. What happened is that this immature and twenty-something liberal socializing only morphed into something else. The old kooks went away, and a new, younger, and naive fan club picked up the torch. Sure, they thought it was cool to be a legit “Neo-Nazi.” It's all in the name of irony and being a hipster!
Perhaps we are dealing with a “cult of extroverts.”
Multiple accounts exist of Nicholas Fuentes operating a pretty boy slave club out of his Chicago home reads more like a scene in Eyes Wide Shut. Sam Hye and his Million Dollar Extreme club from Frank Hassle (a self-loathing hipster) to Paul Town (an insecure bitch with a trans bodyguard) regularly flirts with post-alt-right accounts to get a sense of what the consumer base wants. Chris Korda of The Church of Euthanasia and Lydia Lunch say nice things about Jim Goad, who writes for Counter-Currents! Instagram acts as a tool of René Girard's prison for mimesis, and the theater of envy and action of fear of missing out dictates the politics of subculture and the present.
Also, Jonah Bennett shed his reactionary “Aimless Gromar” name and started Palladium magazine out of San Francisco, intended to give the post-Takimag crew a voice under the disguise it was for a “criticism of liberalism by liberals.” I was blocked from the Palladium Twitter account, without notice, or any interaction knowing who Bennett was.
I lived in San Francisco since 2021, and it’s quite obscure to know such a shame start-up like this can exist behind the matrix of liberalism. Oddly enough, Bennett used to hang out in the DC area along with “I Am Legionnaire” and all the National Policy Institute cronies of Richard Spencer & Co. Nathan, of course, was there too.
There is a secret Freemason cult that is happening behind their veneer of projected ethics against liberalism. The cult of the extroverts are casual party-going liberals acting as anti-social anti-liberals.
Once a proper journalistic investigation is done with these Mark Lombardi connections or academic research is conducted to make proper criticism of the author and the proposed “scene” of “radicals,” you are considered a “doxxer,” and someone not to be trusted if any criminal mafia action happens at the date rape and hedonistic party life. The “salon” or the “party” is not to be questioned or criticized, as this is a ritual of power relations and power-knowledge between the elite, or the “extroverted,” who can attend them, and the “introverted,” who are the pathetic consumers that orbit these leaders.
If you want to hang out in an urban liberal city, be it New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, or even Houston, chances are you have met an eccentric person. I was once an art student hanging out at basement shows in 2011. I met a Jehovah’s Witness into avant-garde noise music, an Asian porn actress who is sympathetic to my views, an openly gay white nationalist, an anarchist tranny, and multiple Boyd Rice fans because of my “extroverted” outings in the last decade.
Oddly enough, they all have something in common. They don’t want to get “doxxed” or be as public as they claim for fame. Everyone in this clown world society has a profession, whether that is being a music teacher, working for Verizon, or just a guy at a vape shop, at least one of these professions has some type of “weird” or “queer” vibe to them. The guy who works at the record store is likely into electronic music, which must mean he has some level of intellect, etc. But if the mean boss were to ever find out about their employee’s decadent activities, they would be fired, simply because the business doesn’t want one person to reflect the public-relations image or on everyone else who works there. Would the video game company Sega benefit from Christian Weston Chandler working there?
And once these eccentric citizens are unemployed, they can’t spend their money pursuing the “revolution” or on decadent social outings that they love pursuing on the weekends. Yet, from the audacity of the New York Times or Vice Magazine, they call that “avant-garde” culture. So isn’t it strange that the big institutions write about, and fabricate, a “scene” of hipsters who are partaking in some kind of bohemian revolution? Every liberal and normie American belongs to the same cult of extroverts who are willing to forget all their extroverted activities once they hit the age of 40.
Introverted people, meanwhile, never go outside and focus on virtue-ethics. It is introverted people who are too busy, who are always working, pursuing true art and intellectualism. There is a sacrifice to start a family, to commit to work, and to isolate to find self-enlightenment. The extroverts believe they have power over the introverts because they have “experience” or have “a life,” when in reality, this is the power structure making sure intellects don’t criticize the state. Introverts create society, and extroverts steal everything from them. Extroverts cry out “We just want to have fun!” And, “You are spiteful and envious of what I have!” And my favorite from cosmopolitan shallow women, “You will never find anyone like me!”
So what does being extroverted versus being introverted have to do with identity and the image of the self?
Think about the logic of Antifa and why they would try to hide their identity, even though they are on a crusade to fight evil and unmask the fascist opponent.
“Here comes the Anti-Fascist Action! Everyone’s favorite superheroes! They don the color black and fight against this repressive system! You can’t see them. Because they are all from the Internet! They are one!”
These masked superheroes fighting for social justice don’t want to get “doxxed” either. Why? Because some say that “the evil fascists will find out and try and persecute me!” Now that is very different from the white nationalist perspective, or Nathan’s, which assumes we all must act together on the same team to normalize everyone’s innate hatred for black people.
With this whole “white nationalist secrecy” in mind, no one, not even white liberals who play into Antifa, is willing to take on the greater responsibility and duty by going out in public and sacrificing one’s life. Jesus Christ did the same, and he has influenced humanity’s effort to fight for the truth. All these Mission Hill, Portlandia, or (as Jack Donovan puts it) “urban elf” caricatures have one thing in common, every subculture has a secret club one has to enter. Be it on a Discord server or a simple punk show playing in some “cool guys” basement or a Brooklyn rooftop party. Of course, there are two fat retarded twins, and one of them is named “Max,” and invited over what they considered “incelcore” and invites normies in any way that goes against their ethos. It never was about that. Max doesn’t know what the fuck a Eurorack is (or even know what “post-left” means) and it’s just plain embarrassing
It’s petty like that old Bernstein Bear’s book, “No Girls Allowed.” In one space or another, it’s “No normies, cucks, fascists, fags, cis-gendered men, blacks, whites, Jews or (insert in the blank) allowed.” People draw their boundaries and create their emotional “anime nobody is watching” narratives about life. Everyone has their bubble or “safe space” until the day they die under liberal democratic capitalism. We lost the sense of a greater collective, in favor of extreme individualism and global consumerism. Where is “the good life” in this ethnopluralist or solipist isolationism?
What makes me the most agitated is that some 20 to 30-something-year-old bearded hipster is going to tell me that I have to “do” certain things to be “accepted” by his equal urban elf friends. If I want to do my power electronics rant and get a bottle thrown out of me, let me. Don’t interfere with my performance, you hipster pussy.
Never apologize. You have nothing to apologize for.
They tell you it’s for your “security,” when really, no one gives a shit. Then they say “No one understands us,” when you should just approach someone without fear. And then they say, “We are an elite group of people,” when they are just roleplaying as the victim. Cops, lawyers, politicians, journalists, musicians, artists, professors, and any contribution-to-society-profession are public figures! They all have nothing to lose!
Meanwhile, some dumbass kid into Michael DeForge from Poughkeepsie is writing love letters to me while venting in his telegram how much I am “narcissistic” just like how his feelings were hurt when he used to talk to vaporwave artists. By the way, he just got out of the psych ward for suicidal behavior and continues to slander me with his Google Doc website and the shit he makes up. Beware of this self-proclaimed “racist autistic ginger” at all costs. These are the people that Max wants at his party.
The irony is that we also have a “party bros” sect that is regressive and represents the stupidity of everything liberalism stands for. Whatever hobby you may have, be it board games, video games, politics, or any intellectual pursuit, some party bro is going to come and mess with your virtue ethics because they see the introvert’s paternal contribution as freeloading resources. The party bro was never an intellect, nor can ever try to retain status as an intellectual “socialite,” no matter the connections and parties they attend. It always ends with date rape, drugs, and keeping the moment a secret from everyone else.
“Dimes Square” is full of kids from liberal parents and power-grabbing pro-liberal agents. Most of The New York Forum and Counter-Currents “scene” assimilated with the Dimes Square party bros. Future Moldovan Citizen, or “MainstreamViews” on Twitter, is Jewish. No “white nationalist” blinks an eye. Katherine Dee is presented as a friendly e-girl journalist who wants to assimilate the values of anti-liberalism in conversation, but platforms it simply as queers in a zoo. Terror House Press has parties in Bushwick, while I am mocked openly at those parties as a krank that made up “Asian Aryanism” or “The Cult of Extroverts” because it comes close to the truth. And with the cherry on top of the cake, “Pariah The Doll” is a trans kid trying to pretend they are cool with the white nationalists and gets the floor with Curtis Yarvin. One must wonder if some kind of nepotism is going on beyond closed doors, through sex or drugs, and decides who’s in or out. I have been out of the loop for a long time, and for whatever reason, I am certainly “banned” from any gay meeting Greg Johnson is having with Travis LeBlanc or any hipster shit happening around Gavin McInnes and fake Christians that try to act like hipsters.
Dimes Square is largely a byproduct of “the synthetic right,” a compatible right wing that advocates the American state and is backed by such organizations as The Epoch Times and Compact Magazine. It is related to the equally damaging “the synthetic left,” which Caleb Maupin investigates in his work, “BreadTube Serves Imperialism: Examining The New Brand of Internet Psuedo-Socialism.” Instead of arguing for states of existing socialism, they are scorned as enemies of communism, and all American leftists should disregard them as “fascists.” Dr. Gabriel Rockhill also wrote about how the American CIA influenced French critical theory to make sure it would favor the American empire, and thus we get individuals like Slavoj Žižek and Mark Fisher, who the synthetic right sees as opposition (be it, a fake one).
The synthetic left is guilty too for advocating the cult of extroverts. Alex Gendler and his Epicurean house in Bushwick is invite-only, and constantly, he is going to parties sponsored by the DSA, Verso, and wherever Ben Burgis is. These extroverts are known as “the dirtbag left,” and it's quite important to note that the right-leaning Red Scare podcast took note from Amber Frost and the ethics of Gendler.
Both synthetic parties always cry about the initiative that there to have “fun.” But what is “fun” if it results in cocaine, hookers, and thrills against what is virtuous? The anarchists never got anything done, because once they got their self-declared autonomous zone in Seattle in 2020, they never formed a government or militia in a month. Instead, they did nothing, consumed, had “fun,” raped people, and got high on their arrogance. To me, that is the real cult of the extroverts and their arrogance that they have something over everyone else. They went on their “revolution” because it sounded nice to roleplay the desire they wanted. Nothing was written, and everyone died. They blamed everything on “fascism” all while acting like the bullies in high school they pretend to be against. They got what they deserved; liberal nihilism.
There is something weak about a man who hides behind a mask. Legendary comedian Lenny Bruce may put on a “performance” and create a character out of it, which is his artistic expression of saying things you couldn’t say before. A man who hides from the truth fears death. Death is coming closer every day of my life. We are all going to die one day. Lenny Bruce wasn’t afraid of the outcome. He was ready for whatever was going to strike him dead.
As MDFMK sang in their song, “Now,”
Don't believe in anything old
Don't believe in anything you're told
Don't believe in anything new
No one here believes in you
Don't believe that anybody cares
Don't believe that anything is fair
Don't believe that anything's for real
Don't believe what you feel
What goes around will come around, and after all, we'll all fall down
No one here is anyone, and in a while, we'll all be gone
This is now
Here and now
Liberal nihilism has erased the thought of death. Everything is just a “phase” so we can enjoy the period of 2017 to 2037 as a selfish generation. It’s the next twenty years of our youthful existence! The years of our lives!
But THIS is NOW.
What are we doing instead? Going with the cult of the extroverts until we all fall.
This feeling of belonging to a “secret underground club against a tyrannical and oppressive system” is wishful thinking. It’s a delight for those who consume it. If pre-socratic notions result in “I just want to get laid every week and watch anime until I die,” then it’s a problem. Decadent, hedonistic, materialistic, liberal nihilism is the problem. And to make it all relative, someone is always in a club YOU can’t enter! Always in a club or political party that results in normie behavior, pretending to be the sensitive, emotional, intimate, and personal intellect the introvert is.
But how did the powers that rule us come about?
Donald Trump won the 2016 election because he came out of the closet. He wasn’t afraid to be racist. There was no freemasonry there advocating his powerful free will. No “meme magic” of any sort. Millennials want to believe they are fighting against the system, but only through the means of consumption and belief. They want to use their internet names as a celebrity persona but get scared shitless if someone found out about their real name. It’s pathetic. This understanding of a “culture war” is the reason why you have the cult of extroverts in the first place.
We tend to put on those masks and act a certain way for white-collar Machiavellian interest. The fake internet names are attached to our real selves, and eventually, we will come out of the closet too. That’s why you have a slew of internet start-up names; from Roaming Millennial to Lauren Chen, from Survive The Jive to Thomas Rowsell, and from Frame Game to Mike Benz, these idiots used to play dumb by roleplaying as a secret anonymous influencer, only to come out with their real name so they can write off their internet career as another CV-Resume point for their Linkedin page to get that cush job in New York.
Has any serial killer gotten away in history? These freemasons believe history will be written without them! How so? It’s like being a gay man in a bathhouse, finding his next victim to rape. Someone will be arrested, and intellects will discover the Hegelian truth.
There are levels to respect personal privacy, but if you’re going out doing normie things... well, expect to be “doxxed” and be treated as a normie. They confuse personal privacy with freemasonry, which are two opposing concepts. Everyone will be doxxed eventually. If you signed up for a Twitter account, the government already has your information through GPS coordination. It’s right that there is a liberal #MeToo movement against the mean men. And it’s only natural for someone to write history from the victors that censor and play dumb to it. As Max Weber or Michel Foucault put it, this is a game of power knowledge, and whoever keeps it as a cult, freemasonry, or “private” club of extroverted people, is indeed, the enemy of the intellectual and the arts.
I think of myself as a martyr. I am doing this for myself. This is who I am. I am a paternal figure eager to act as an activist and represent myself when confronted with a controversial situation. I take all responsibility. Say all you want that “it’s for our protection,” at least be an adult and suffer from it.
“Consent culture” is making a comeback as “please don’t say my real name because it hurts my feelings.” This pretentious secret Freemason club has got to go. It tells everyone you are either a criminal in a mafia organization or trying to belong in some stupid cool kids club.
I am an advocate of straight-edge culture and organizations like Friends Stand United. The cult of extroverts is put in check once someone from the straight-edge scene comes and reorganizes them. The Antifa punks work the same way, except they hate anything to do with anti-liberalism, which only fabricates the synthetic right’s desire of fake opposition.
The problem with our American society is the divide between white people is not only based upon “the right kind of white people vs. the wrong kind of white people,” (as Christian Lander puts it in Whiter Shades of Pale) but also between introverts and extroverts. Western society has concluded that the white man uses the Earth solely for his resources. It’s only there for him to exploit. Man is not dependent on nature, rather, Nature is dependent on him. So it is a long-term goal for Western man to consume and create “reason” within his environment.
Globalism, free-market capitalism, and individualism are based upon this empty and bleak nihilism. This has further created the culture we know as the “normies,” filled with “chads” and “stacies.” Chads and Stacies don’t have the time to stay at home or work alone to create art, or even for that matter, contribute to something greater for society. Normies just want to go to the “bar” or go “clubbing” on the weekends and have sex with as many people as possible.
How did things become this irrational? György Lukács wrote in his 1952 book, The Destruction of Reason, that for some time, the elites curated a new intelligentsia influenced by Friedrich Nietzsche, and Ayn Rand, and manifested in Leo Strauss, that antagonized rationalism, and sought to advocate a world based upon selfish individualism and hedonistic affairs. The arts, as well as culture, had to work with profit and directed people to think in terms of the liberal nihilist. Lukács was against this and was the master of diagnosing society’s ills.
Normies are so dangerous that they have created a new social standard based upon judging people if they are not “alpha” enough. The introverts have to stay home, play video games, surf 4chan, and continue a non-significant life based upon their virtues that the normies forcefully condemn.
Ironically, it is the introverts who are creating that very “metapolitical” and cultural foundation of our future society that extroverts dream of. The cult of the extroverted can only be consumers of the introverted dream. The extroverts are the ones who role-play their fantasies. Interestingly enough, our American capitalist society praises those who participate in it. The values and ethics of a “participator” (a pre-socratic notion) are “alpha.” It is confusing even more that American society is dominated by liberalism, and seeks to present a facade over everyone else with infinite nihilism and stubborn Sargon-of-Akkad or Dave-Greene-or-Donovan-The-Fat-Fucking-Distributist-tier reasoning. It is these “alphas” (the extroverted normies) that are successful in America. But the system lies and never presents, or even teaches, the issue of becoming the new barbarians. Not everyone can be an alpha. But some desperate nerds and idiots are so demanding to act and become some kind of “pussynerd.”
Extroverts are not helping society; they are destroying it. I frown upon this childish behavior of, “I am better than you because I have friends and do decadent things.” The American man and woman have indeed reached this level. The upper class is decadent. Even worse is that the upper-middle-class wants to believe there is a stable aristocracy when they are lied to. Everyone is stuck in their social position, quietly suffering and being deluded by cognitive therapy. Only the upper class has infinite freedom that the “American dream” begs people to believe in. It’s foolish to think a man can transform into a Mishima-type in one day.
However, I do believe in “self-improvement.” I lift weights, eat healthy, take care of my body, and focus on my future. I want to be a good role model based upon morally good virtues. The disease of Western man is based upon excessive drinking, recreational drug use, casual sex, useless swearing, self-aware hip-hop references, and pop-culture consumerism. This is unfortunately, for most white men, the only way to attract a disgusting female. Self-improvement is the core of the straight-edge movement, and virtue ethics is a natural outcome of its praxis.
The introverts will even condemn each other for not being more extroverted! The cult of the extrovert is real because everyone wishes they were “The New Barbarians”... the supposed “winners” in life. My problem with the alt-right is that it is becoming more normie and extroverted. Silly games of “going to the bar” and “drinking” do not move the cause forward. It’s nihilism.
Idiot “gamers,” furries, socialists, punk rockers, ...whatever proxy and subculture for nihilism, all do the same thing to bond with other like-minded consumers. How many people are getting into these “queer” or “weird” movements and asking for the red-carpet treatment because they are special? Or rather, they are “an amazingly extroverted person?”
People like Based Stickman, Nathan Damigo, Emily Youcis, whoever hobbyist of being extroverted, ...not even contributing anything towards metapolitics, are indirect salesmen, selling the isolated introverts “hope” for the future. How many LARPers came to that wall in New York City, to get on cam and “troll” that guy just to show how “cool” they were (I mean, I was there too)?
For fucks sake, life is becoming more scenester.
Try finding a date on OkCupid. All those women are spoiled with a glut of men to choose from! The sexual revolution liberated women’s sexuality, not men’s. White women have been known to emulate the behavior of the genuine white man. They will go so far as to role-play or even “cosplay” as a desire made up by the introverted.
The introverted created Frankenstein’s monster, –the extroverted class that runs society! Percy Bysshe Shelley also created a monster when he wrote Hymn to Intellectual Beauty. That the “new woman” shall be based upon “intellectual desires” rather than the physical. ...Now we have blue-haired SJWs who think they are living anime characters.
The cult of the extrovert is dangerous because its principles are based upon materialism. It’s a competitive fashion statement, rather than a quest for authenticity, which introverts naturally struggle in life for. The cult of the extrovert is a creation of the introverted. The introverts like to dream alone in bed, “If only my life was better and was like an adventure.”
What we think we know as “true virtues,” have been destroyed by an extroverted and evil rapist. ...The innocent are being corrupted.
Everyone will judge me and say, “Ha, well, are you going to be remembered in history if you just stay at home and do nothing!?” Again, this is something the cult of the extroverted would say.
I would reply, “Yes. Because I produce. I get shit done.”
A good example of the cult of the extroverted would be the very last passage of Days of War, Nights of Love, an anarchist lifestyle manifesto. I won’t quote it in detail, but I will say that the narrator presents himself (“herself”) in the last chapter as (I’m paraphrasing here) “truly being free where I get lots of sex and everyday and life is an adventure.”
Claus Brinker, or Nathan, never understood the criticism. The cult of the extroverted will never understand what it means to be free and to pursue the arts. They can only be influenced by the things I do, by my commitment to the written word, to electronic sounds, of filmmaking, lectures, and performance. And yet, will they ever understand my great contributions towards anti-liberalism? The yuppie clique may prance about their so-called “social life” on “social media,” but they are just cogs in the machine. Artists don’t belong with the cult of extroverts that have redundant pieces in the Whitney Museum of American Art and fuck men to get there.
I am straight-edge. And I would like to see them burn when I am proven right.
