    On a less intellectual note, I was in the same form class at school as Douglas Murray for 3 years, before he got a Choral scholarship to Eton. Hasn't changed much really.

Around this time he was in touch with Reza Negarestani, of Cyclonopedia fame, who was built into the Hyperstition axis, as was K-punk. This was also the era of Cold Rationalism, but in the life-time of the Hyperstition blog, K-punk took a Leninist-Bolshevik turn, inspired by Zizek and Badiou, and Nick Land started reading National Review and Spengler and quoting (with approval) the neoconservative World War 4 thesis but (typically) in even harsher, more extreme, 'hyperstitional' terms. He since seems to have ditched the neoconservatism and absorbed libertarian writers like Hayek and Hans-Hermann Hoppe into his Deleuze & Guattari-derived pro-capitalism, and (typically) taken this in an even harsher, more extreme direction, attacking democracy with some ferocity and delving into biological determinism. He has found a theoretical space on the extreme libertarian right, building a platform alongside racists and anti-semites. There is always a danger of this when you are locked in a world of ideas.
    Thanks, craner That fills some plot holes.

    Moldbug... has opened up a line to the White House, communicating with Bannon and his aides through an intermediary, according to a source.
    Whaaaaaat?

    It gets more deranged by the day.

    Not sure how believable it sounds, but like you say ...

    Maybe the "intermediary" is Thiel? Apparently he invested in Moldbug's startup.

    Is Land mates with Aleksandr Dugin? Sounds like those two would get on like a civilization on fire.

    Land thinks Dugin is a Eurasian ethno-socialist (aka "the enemy"). I doubt Dugin has ever heard of Land.

    Huh, shows what I know. I guess weirdos don't necessarily think alike.

    On a closer inspection, that article is largely journalistic silliness and substanceless nudges and winks (reaching its apex in the section about Moldbug).

    I agree, it is full of holes and spurious nonsense.

    The Atlantic have picked this non-story up and produced something even more ridiculous:

    “Think you should speak directly to my WH cutout / cell leader,” Yarvin said in an email. “I've never met him and don't know his identity, we just DM on Twitter. He's said to be ‘very close’ to Bannon. There are several levels, but most people just start out with his public persona.” @BronzeAgePerv’s avatar is of a muscular, shirtless man and his account’s biography reads: “Steppe barbarian. Nationalist, Fascist, Nudist Bodybuilder! Purification of world. Revolt of the damned. Destruction of the cities!”

    “I know nothing about BAP personally, except that he lifts. DM him. He may not give you any info but he always responds,” Yarvin said. “Apparently there's a big underground movement of right-wing bodybuilders -- thousands. Their plan is to surface spectacularly this April, in a choreographed flash demo on the Mall. They'll be totally nude, but wearing MAGA hats. Goal is to intimidate Congress with pure masculine show of youth, energy. Trump is said to know, will coordinate with powerful EOs…”

    Is there a merit/means in combining the NRx, Right & Alt-Right threads into a single thread?

    Even also the Trump, Breitbart threads?

    All of these matters are extremely entangled now...
