Anybody familiar with me knows that I am opposed to all forms of Liberalism (which means all modern political ideologies) but I especially have a contention with Classical Liberalism, who have taken the mantle of Right in politics and redefined it to mean limited government, freedom of speech, and free markets and private individual rights (which to a reactionary are all to his Left).
But putting myself into the perspective of a Libertarian idol worshiper of mammon and the mystical free hand of the free market, Ben Shapiro’s above quote on declaring merciless total war against racists is absolutely statist and oppressive.
“The fundamental principle underlying all justifications of war, from the point of view of human personality, is ‘heroism’. War, it is said, offers man the opportunity to awaken the hero who sleeps within him. War breaks the routine of comfortable life; by means of its severe ordeals, it offers a transfiguring knowledge of life, life according to death.

Those who fight for the absolute libertine lifestyle counterfeiting the word liberty under no moral basis except an extreme distrust for authority can proclaim the right of their blasphemous vulgarity. The only thing they use their talents for is to desacralize everything and to level it down … Read More
If I were to discuss this topic on a forum or public area without a doubt I would be immediately banned or tarred-and-feathered, and to be marked as a pariah who was gone beyond the pale. I am about to criticize and repudiate the Holy Grail of Liberalism: Freedom of Speech. What impudent timing! Right when the globalists wish to censor the internet and Youtube shutting down political dissent even against its most popular celebrities. Freedom of Speech in Pre-Liberal Democracies
It seems that Freedom of Speech was mainly used as a rebellious tool masquerading as some higher-cause for freethinking and rationalism against the authority of The Church and State (Monarchs) in order to promote Truth. Alexis De Tocqueville mentions how in Europe although there was no freedom of speech and sedition would … Read More
