New Interview with Me Up: Robert Stark Interviews Alt Left Blogger Ryan Englund

I am actually one of the interviewers on the show along with Rabbit, von Goldstein and Stark. All in all, this was a truly fantastic show ,and I have a great deal of respect for all three of these men.

Rabbit has always been very nice and respectful towards me, and I respect him for that. I also think he is a fine writer with some good ideas.

Alex von Goldstein was also on. Although he is Jewish, he is probably the most Alt Right of all of us. He also is quite smart, and I gained new respect for him on this show.

Ryan Englund is a brilliant new member of the Alt Left who has rapidly risen to become one of its stars. I honestly cannot believe how smart and learned he is. Of all four of us on the show, he may well have been the smartest and most educated person there. He’s a really nice guy, he’s very easy to get along with, he’s sane, rational, stable and calm, and he’s also a very smart political strategist (I’m not the most diplomatic person out there, so I’m probably not really great at politics). At the moment, I would say that Ryan is one of the leaders of the movement. Although I founded it and Rabbit was the next early adopter, nearly Rabbit nor I put in nearly the work on it that Ryan does.

    That is an interesting interview. I have some comments here:

    Incidentally, I never said I want to excommunicate you from the Alt Left, if that talk about “entryists” was supposed to be about me.

  2. You give me flattery I do not deserve, Robert. I’m as much an “entryist” as anyone. Whatever assets I may have, the limits of my abilities have fast been reached: my health isn’t great, and job and family make any kind of work of this nature a tentative thing with me. Which I suppose is okay – to have a job and a place in one’s community is really what we fight for. But be careful what you wish for. These things are very time consuming.

    Actually, the “entryists” discussed are not yourself or others at your blog, LK. If you haven’t noticed, the alt-left is a bit fractured. I even blog about that here:

    https://samizdatchronicles.blogspot.ca/2016/09/sub-types-on-alternative-left.html

    The issue the alt-left seems to have is that it’s new, and people are coming to it from very different ideological backgrounds. The very early alt-leftists were on the alt-right, but didn’t fit in there for whatever reasons. Others, and these are more the “equal rights advocates” types are people who are very liberal culturally and socially, but fell out with the cultural/social left when it went full SJW. These two groups naturally communicate quite differently and actually frame their world views in quite radically different ways. Despite that, I think at heart they’re after the same thing. Both were drawn to the alt-left for a reason: the wish for a progressive movement that’s less obsessive about IdPol and focuses a bit more on economic inequality and starts respecting civil liberties again.

    I don’t see any of these sub-groups going anywhere. Their existence is determined by political need, and it’s something that the alt-left alone seems to be addressing these days. That will only ever really change when the mainstream progressives start to get it.

    Don’t hold your breath.

    “he may well have been the smartest”
    He says he’s not a race realist.

    • So? Racialism is correlated with lower IQ;

      But even if you don’t believe that;
      coming to HBD has a lot to do with experiences, as well.
      Maybe he didn’t have negative experiences with certain groups.

      • This was the Kanazawa study.

        Kanazawa himself was a “race realist” and a friend of Rushton.

          “So? Racialism is correlated with lower IQ;”

          Different racial groups have different IQ means. That is about as well established as anything can be. You can either not know that or ignore it.

          “coming to HBD has a lot to do with experiences, as well.”

          For some it confirms, in a way, what they believed and wanted to believe. For some it is an unpleasant fact.

        • “For some it confirms, in a way, what they believed and wanted to believe. For some it is an unpleasant fact.”

          Exactly. Part of the reason the lower IQ link exists, is that lower IQ Whites are more likely to be in contact with “NAMs”, and have such presumptions.

          A lot of others were born extremely evolutionary primitive tribal, and couldn’t care less of HBD is true, they just want to put the others down.

          Generally, it’s a movement of angry, resentful white males, normally blowhards. That’s not saying though the other side cannot be that way to some extent, but at least they’re promoting love not hate.

          “and the data should not be used to stereotype or make assumptions about people, experts say.”

          Precious.

          Interesting article, thanks for the link.

          The study takes the American view of liberal vs. conservative. It defines “liberal” in terms of concern for genetically nonrelated people and support for private resources that help those people. It does not look at other factors that play into American political beliefs, such as abortion, gun control and gay rights.
          “Liberals are more likely to be concerned about total strangers; conservatives are likely to be concerned with people they associate with,” he said.”

          I think that they are measuring an aspect of the in-group/out-group behavior and which apparently weakens with higher IQ. My caveat would be context. Which way do devout liberals run when caught in the middle of a homicidal race riot?

          A lot of others were born extremely evolutionary primitive tribal, and couldn’t care less of HBD is true, they just want to put the others down.

          My opinion is that ethnocentrism is “natural” and we only become “aware” of it through education and wisdom.

          Your point is well taken. It seems to me that a crucial distinction should be made between a cognitive recognition of race realism and the utilitarian use by assorted racists.
