Neoreaktion im Silicon Valley
Is artificial intelligence racist? In the Silicon Valley, neo-reactionaries program humanity history from the mind of computers.
14.04.2017, by MARK SIEMONS
What is going on in this computer-generated back-head, which can be found on the website “Post-Anathema” for “neoreaktionäre Ästhetik”?
The so-called alternative rights (“alt-right”), which provides for the radical superstructure of the Trumps government and, above all, its Chief Counselor Bannon , is supported not only by conservatives of the old school – people who oppose multiculti, gene theory and Silicon Valley By nature, order. In an overview, which last year gave the central body of the AltRight movement, the website “Breitbart”, there is, of course, also this traditionalist current, in addition to regular neo-Nazis. It is under the heading “Natural Conservatives,” a species predominantly of white, masculine, and middle American Americans who, by pure “instinct,” upholds the interests of their own demographic tribe and therefore finds the market less important than the republican establishment As authority, homogeneity and family.
But a much more specific one appears in the text, a group of relatively young intellectuals, who are themselves called “Neoreaktionäre” or “NRx”. What is crucial to them is that traditions do not play a role for them, and they regard any “nature” no less as a cultural and social construct than the leftist and liberal theorists who are supposed to characterize the mainstream they hate. The difference is that they give this pattern a new filling, an undisputedly racist and authoritarian. They raise the demand to reprogram the rationality, which was an emancipatory progress project.
Much more about Mencius Moldbug and Nick Land follows.
Allow me to say that Mencius deserves to be discussed in the language of Kant, Hegel, and Heidegger:
Ein Hauptideengeber ist der in San Francisco lebende Software-Ingenieur Curtis Yarvin, der unter seinem Blogger-Namen Mencius Moldbug schreibt: „Bei UR“ – gemeint ist sein Blog „Unqualified Reservations“ – „kümmern wir uns nicht um Tradition. Wir akzeptieren nichts Gegebenes, dienen keinem Idol. Im Gegenteil – wir scheißen auf sie.“
See what I mean?
Here’s some more ne0-reactionary aesthetics from Post-Anathema:
