Personally, I have been described as “otherworldly,”, “beyond highbrow,” “one of those totally out to lunch genius types,” and “off in my own world.” I have a very high IQ, and I’m told that a lot of high-IQ folks are like this. There doesn’t seem to be much I can do about it, but it does cause me problems.
Generally, topics are focused through a progressive yet heterodox lens.
Discusses race a lot – if it bugs you, don’t read. Overview of my views on race can be seen in this interview here.
I have been called a liberal race realist. Liberal race realism has been described as “a dash of race realism, positive White racial identity, the leftist view of American history, anti-racism, and a base of liberalism.”
I see myself as a pan-humanist universalist and a nonracist race realist, who strongly dislikes the PC, Cultural Marxist, Identity Politics, Western New Left.
I hearken back to an earlier Left that did not shy from cultural critique, particularly of backwards and reactionary cultures. I have major issues with standard Leftist internationalism, as it’s irrational and Utopian.
Although I am generally opposed to racism, I do hate Gypsies.
I also have an eclectic definition of what it means to be anti-racist. To me it means you should try not to treat others even slightly less well as others due to who their parents were.
I admit I am what is called a “ liberal racist.” I am also a “White man’s burden” racist, which is pretty much the same thing. I am also a “scientific racist,” but I just call that telling the truth. In addition, I am a “colorblind racist.” I’m comfortable with these political errors of thought.
I would like to clear up my views about race and intelligence. There are presently differences in average intelligence between the races. I do argue that IQ tests are an accurate measure of intelligence in most cases.
On the Woman Question, I am an equity feminist in the Daphne Patai , Camille Paglia and Nadine Strossen mold – all’s fair in love and war. I participate in a lot of pro-woman campaigns, mostly around economic and abortion rights issues.
I also support sex-positive feminism, riot girrls, Third-Wave feminism (Naomi Wolf – qualified approval) and especially post-feminism. On the other hand, I am also a masculinist: I am a man, and I must be for myself. As a masculinist and a devoted libertine, I am opposed to gender feminism and radical feminism.
Notorious provocateur and iconoclast, smashes all party lines.
