Robert Stark interviews Dota about Oligarchy & National Capitalism

Dota and Bay Area Guy are former commenters at Robert Lindsay who went off to form their own site. May we spawn many more such Lindsaybabies! Many more! Forever more! I always liked Dota, even if he is more conservative than I am. You can’t expect everyone to be your political clone. Then you won’t have any friends. I don’t even know what national capitalism is. But if that’s what the Chinese are up to, I do not mind it at all actually.

I don’t really mind Paleocons. I will take a dozen Paleocons over one leftwing PC SJW. I am somewhat embarassed that American Conservative resonates with me. Nevertheless, I am not really a conservative in any way, shape or form. Even social conservatism doesn’t resonate with me in any  way, shape or form. Nor am I much on the Left anymore. Nor am I a mushy Centrist invertebrate. What am I? Alternative Left maybe?

Interview here.

Dota is a Canadian Paleoconservative of Indian origin. He blogs at Occident Invicta.
Topics include:

Dota’s article Oligarchy 101 about how 5 banks rigged the foreign exchange market
National Capitalism – A Third Alternative?
Dota’s article America’s Tainted Democracy about how South Asians are beginning to use their wealth to buy political clout

Kevin Hannan Wrote for This Site

Wikipedia entry here.

Interesting. This man was quite famous, and incredibly enough, he wrote for my blog for some time. But he did so under a pseudonym, so I never had any idea of who he was. He used to write me from time to time to send me his new stuff. He said he was an academic who had left the US and fled to Eastern Europe.

From Wikipedia:

After resuming his research near the end of the 20th century, Hannan widely travelled in Ukraine, Poland, Russia, and the Balkans. He came to the conclusion that civic cosmopolitanism, divorced from localized ethnic values as embodied in long-lasting ethnic groups (often imagined as nations), failed people, leaving them to the anonymous and dehumanizing economic forces of supply and demand. An epitome of such a situation he saw in his native United States, which, according to him, explained a constant increase in genealogical research in the country, observed since the 1970s. In this line of thinking, a person can find one’s identity only in one’s ethnolinguistic ancestry, not in the technical rationalism of law and economy. Hence, the United States or any other settler state could never become a ‘real ethnic country’. Hannan blovated on this in Why I Left America: Reflections on History, Culture and Religion / Dlaczego wyjechałem z Ameryki, which he published under a pseudonym in 2003, fearful of possible backlash that would bar him permanently from obtaining a position at a Western university.

As a positive alternative to the de-ethnicized United States he posed the ethnic values of Poland in his My Poland: Essays on Polish Identity / Moja Polska. Eseje o polskości from 2005. He did, on occasion, make note of the failings of Polish nationalism and national statehood such as the long-lasting preservation of serfdom and the never-ending quest for ethnolinguistic purity, which led to vast ethnic cleansing in the communist period (1944–1989). He was especially critical of the relentless Polonization of Belarusians, Rusyns (Lemkos), and Ukrainians, who, in his eyes, preserved ‘real Slavic spirituality,’ as encapsulated in Greek Catholicism, Orthodox Christianity, and the liturgical language of Church Slavonic.[1]

Hannan chose Poland as his adopted homeland in preference to the Czech Republic, which he perceived as an example of an overexclusive ethnic nationalism, which led to the 1993 breakup of Czechoslovakia, producing this nation-state and another, Slovakia. He qualified any strong-Polonist sentiments by saying that ‘his Poland’ was the southern half of the country skirted by the multilingual, multiethnic, and multiconfessional Carpathians.

Hannan was a character. He absolutely hated Communism and didn’t think much of Jews either. I had a hard time publishing him because, honestly, Hannan was an anti-Semite, though not a particularly virulent one. He opposed the Jews of Poland because during and after the Communist era, Polish Jews had gone on the warpath against the Polish people and the Polish nation.

What I found fascinating was that after 1989, there were perhaps 10,000 Polish Jews left in the whole country, yet one of them owned one of Poland’s largest newspapers. Hannan absolutely hated this man, and indeed this Polish Jewish media magnate spent much of his time dragging the Polish people and their nation and identity through the mud. Hannan felt that since 1945, the Polish Jews had been waging a campaign that could be summed up as “Poles are evil.” Note the similarities to the Jewish War on Whites in the US.

Hannan was very much a traditionalist, and in his favor, I will say that he told me that he was a socialist, but he was not a Communist. I suppose his position could best be summed as a socialist nationalist. He felt that the globalized McWorld had destroyed everything of value that humans had created, and he thought that the only antidote to corporate globalized atomization was local cultures, traditions, religions and strong ethnic identities.

Hannan should not be considered a Polish nationalist. In fact, he opposed mainstream Polish nationalism which seeks to obliterate all other ethnicities and languages in Poland, saying they are all Poles speaking dialects of Polish.

The wars the Poles have waged on the Lemkos, Silesians and Kashubians have a tragic history. Most Polish linguists have been overtly politicized for a very long time. Polish textbook, in particular history books, are some of the most wildly politicized and propagandized in all of Europe. Your average Pole gets a pitiful brainwashed version of an education. Polish nationalists are ferocious, and like all ethnic nationalists, they are stupid, belligerent, ignorant and opposed to facts, science and knowledge.

Hannan opposed Polonization efforts of Belarussians, Ukrainians and Lemkos in Poland.

Hannan told me on numerous occasions that he had to write his political pieces under a pseudonym, as he felt that if he wrote under his real name, he would never be able to get a job at a US university. He hinted that he was mainly afraid that Jewish influence would keep him from getting a job due to his Jewish-critical writings.

He died in 2008. I was informed of this by a friend of his sometime after the fact. I actually liked this fellow. He was a very interesting man. I will see if I can find any of his old essays so I can republish them.

Rate Me

We are talking so much in these threads about the importance of male looks, so I may as well toss my hat into the ring.

How good looking do you think I am?

Here.

Go ahead and rate me. You can even rate me down through the years if you wish.

If you give me a low rating, try to be very nice about it and I assure you that I won’t ban you. If you give me a low rating and are really mean about it though, you are going to make me mad. Or you can just post the comment under a fake name (you can do that with any comment on here – just change it in the comments box – and then I won’t know it is you). I don’t even care about low ratings honestly because I am so egotistical, I am just going to say you are lying. If you rate me a 1, I will probably just laugh at you.

People are saying that men need to be at least a 7 in looks to even get 5 women these days. That implies that a 5 man can do no better than 3 woman. That may well be true; I have no idea.

But the truth is that I continue to slay to this very day, even though I am supposedly an old man now. I get women my age who are easily 7-10’s for their age group (which is honestly all I can hope for). Some of them are even former models.

I can even get young women sometimes, aged maybe 26-29. For some reason I can still do ok in that age group. A few years ago, I got a 26 year old woman who was a hottie. She worked as a stripper in a bar, and I think you can’t be a stripper unless you are as good-looking as a porn star. So I can still get 26 year old strippers, or at least I could several years ago.

Keep in mind that I have absolutely no idea how I am able to pull this stuff off. I have no money and no status. I may be semi-famous as a blogger, and I am starting to get women now via the blog. Yes, there are “blog groupies” if you get big enough. As far as status, I have no idea. In my town and anywhere I go in meatspace, I have no fame or status.

I only have Game, and my Game is not bad. I may still have looks. I have no idea. Some women my age say I look fantastic. A few young women say I look hot too. But to be completely honest, most young women could not be less interested in me and their attitude is, “Get away from me, old man.” I am basically an Omega incel as far as most young women are concerned.

So let’s see how you guys rate me and let’s put your Looks Theory to the test.

Well of course that could only be my Mom. Props to Mom!

I have been involved with a lot of females over the decades. And out of all of them, she stands out.

She’s the woman who never stopped loving me.

And she’s the only woman who never left me.

You know that’s got to count for something.

Good Guys and Bad Guys

My friend Keith Preston recently quoted me in a Facebook post:

There are no good guys. There are bad guys and worse guys, and that’s it.

-Robert Lindsay

I hate to blow my own horn here, but you know what? I really like that quote. I am quite proud of myself actually. It’s really sad, but if I have learned one single damn thing in 57 years, it’s summed up in that quote above.

Besides that, what do you folks think of that profoundly cynical quote? Agree or disagree?

Praise for Beyond Highbrow

Here is an example of the some of the praise I have gotten around the Net. I don’t have only haters, you know.

First, on the non-Bigfoot stuff:

Lindsay is an indie version of Michael Moore or John Pilger.

RL seems like one of those nonconformist, brilliant, independent thinkers – the kind of people I really admire, and the kind that you *never* see in the MSM.

And now from the Bigfoot Net, where I am most reviled:

Steven Steufert: Re. Robert Lindsay, well, he seems like a cool guy to me, to the extent that I’ve heard him, and discussed things with him via email. He is just a curious guy delving deeply into the Bigfooting rumor mill. He has found some amazing things, even if not all of it is actually true in the end.

He should be commended for the dogged determination he has shown in digging up these things and developing the network of contacts and sources that he has. I say this in reference to his Bigfoot news, not whatever other views he has expressed (to great controversy) on his blog. He has a right to his own personal opinions, and really, whatever they are, they have very little to do with the quality of information in his Bigfoot articles.

Sharon Lee: I am starting to think that maybe we should pay more attention to Robert Lindsay.

Bigfoot Forums: Anyone still willing to state RL is irrelevant and just pulls stuff from his posterior side? The guy has contacts. Never 100% correct, but don’t dismiss his ramblings.

Bigfoot Forums: What is interesting is that this reviled blogger gets so much traction. I visit the blog for the Bigfoot news; I can’t help it. Sadly, I researched a lot of his claims – some I am intimate with personally. It is not all garbage. Inflammatory yes, but interesting how that works. Each raising of the anger bar brings more players out talking.
