What is Anti-Liberalism?
An introduction to the greatest heresy of all
The postmodern world is divided into two religions. Those who are liberal, and those who are anti-liberal.
While modernity was a period of the self and the creation of nationalist mythology, postmodernity did not replace modernity but reinvented those terms to include an extreme technologically imposed egalitarianism and transhumanism. Postmodernity is not an anti-liberal period as they want us to believe. Rather, postmodernity seeks to instill the American empire, its imperialism, and the hegemonic cultural colonialism processed through Eurocentric global capitalism.
We live under “liquid modernity.” “Postmodernity” is a misnomer and a rainbow-colored cake that veneers this truth. We believe in Zygmunt Bauman and his analysis on the current state we live in.
Liberalism can be defined as a philosophy based on individualism, democracy, egalitarianism, liberty, and the celebration of the state acting as an ethical and moral judge. In economics, liberalism relies on the foundation of capitalism and its cultural values needed to operate. Thus according to the American mind, to go against capitalism is to go against liberalism.
Anti-liberalism is the movement, philosophy, and action against all forms of liberalism. An anti-liberal can be an anti-capitalist, an anti-egalitarian, an anti-individualist, an anti-libertarian, an anti-democrat, and importantly, an anti-modernist, the greatest heresy of all.
Anti-liberalism takes many forms, and ultimately, anyone in the network rhizomes of “the dark enlightenment” and the subcultural post “alt-right” are advocates of anti-liberalism. Being anti-liberal does not mean advocating the political left or right, but many associates of anti-liberalism are proud radicals against the state. This could be a misleading and subcultural “white” nationalist, a transgressive “punk” artist, a trans or gay person that hates liberalism, a “people of color” or a minority group that seeks self-determination and a racial nation, a right-leaning bumpkin, a left-leaning tankie against “the synthetic left,” a continental philosopher examining the paradoxes of the West, and any non-white force that is doubting the Western world hegemony.
Whatever side they take, anti-liberalism recognizes that the left and the right are subcultural divides and no longer hold power. Rather, there are universal traits against the modern world that anti-liberals seek to reveal as the truth, such as the reality of race, the reality of tradition, the reality of the difference between men and women, the reality of sexuality, the reality of primal violence, and the reality that there is an urge to work without economic limits. Categorizing these values towards a political “left” or “right” are pushed to divide. What is true, is that everyone hates the liberal state. Liberalism eventually becomes anti-liberal through its self-hatred that it must commit suicide to save humanity. The ideology of liberalism itself is a virus and must be eradicated.
Anti-liberalism is the greatest political heresy of all because it’s not only against the state but against the soul of the Eurocentric man and his conquest for world enlightenment. His values are out of date and provide only trouble and chaos against nature. The liberal is resentful of everything and wants to tear down the tree he does not understand. The anti-liberal is a jester, a prankster, and a hero who fights against the project of transcendental social control.
Anti-liberalism is not self-destructive, and rather wishes to critique the state while providing answers towards the true Platonic form of “the good life.” In contrast, the anti-liberal is against Plato as well, because Plato was the beginning of the Western rot towards liberalism. If the anti-liberal has an enemy, it is the common liberal. In America, the liberal can be defined as an uptight, upper-middle-class admixture European person who plots their death through hall monitor shaming and whimsical egalitarian replacement. In essence, the anti-liberal hates whiteness because the enforcement of whiteness is the advocation of liberalism. There is no common race or identity among the so-called “white” Americans other than consumption and subculture. Anti-liberalism cures this paradox by giving the admixture of European people an identity against liberalism.
Anti-liberalism takes much of its cues from Émile Durkheim, Max Weber, Friedrich Nietzsche, Max Stirner, Julius Evola, René Girard, Aleksandr Dugin, Martin Heidegger, Carl Schmitt, Marquis de Sade, Georges Bataille, Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan, Jacques Rancière, Alain Badiou, Jean Baudrillard, François Laruelle, and even Karl Marx. The cultural project is about resisting the American state while advocating a BRICS paradigm shift against the old world. Anti-liberalism sees global capitalism and libertarianism as the greatest threats against world peace. In addition, anti-liberalism will cure the broken relationships found in the West and beyond by advocating a “Eurasian” cultural shift in the arts and moral philosophy.
Anti-liberalism is metaphysical, in that it sees all pursuits and creations around liberty as completely futile, and that an arrogant “game” of liberalism is forced upon its victims. In the 1960s propaganda film, “Baghdad By The Bay,” (preserved by the Periscope Film LLC) perfectly illustrates the flaws of liberalism in American society through the insincere farce. At 2:50, the description of Union Square Park is described as a “sanctuary” of “conformists, nonconformists, and in-between.” And that this is “freedom.” Anti-liberalism wants to destroy this sanctuary and violate every law enforced by liberalism.
The blogger known as “pilleater” is an advocate of anti-liberalism. His blog is not just a collection of digital letters but provides criticisms against liberal culture and the zealots around it. Pilleater writes from an egoist perspective, where the power of self-interest and will is highly incompatible with liberalism and libertarianism.
Anti-liberalism is a fight to save humanity. To be against anti-liberalism is a form of decadence. The anti-liberal is a classical nihilist who wants to put humanity into space and to make the fantasy of anime aesthetics into a reality. Everyone on Twitter, YouTube, and Substack already advocates anti-liberalism as a moral imperative.
We are fighting for our lives.
We are anti-liberals.
