  1. I’m sick of the NRx obsession with their “Progressivism came from Christianity” hobbyhorse. It was dumb when Moldbug first wrote about it (probably consciously or unconsciously trying to distract attention away from the heavy influence of Jewish intellectuals in developing modern liberalism and neoconservatism), and it’s even dumber today now that so many good critiques of this stupid idea are readily available.

    Christianity is a religion focused on salvation from sin and reconciliation with God through Jesus Christ. “Christianity without Christ” is complete nonsense, you might as well talk about “Islam without the Koran”. The fact that some old Time article describes globalism as “super-protestant” just shows that the author was confused about what exactly Protestant Christianity is. I hear critics saying “No True Scotsman” fallacy to that, but one of the oldest tenets of Protestantism is “Sola Scriptura”, so just show me where Christ talks about unified international command of armies and navies, or the necessity of a universal currency, and I’ll concede the point. Otherwise, admit that these ideas aren’t Protestant or Christian in the slightest, even if they may incidentally have been held by certain groups of Protestants at certain points in history.

    Meanwhile I see there’s been a lot of handwringing articles about whether the Frankfurt School caused American liberalism, or merely heavily influenced it. This is hairsplitting. Show me a single country with a meaningful Jewish minority where they don’t constantly agitate to overthrow the majority culture and I’ll take back everything mean I’ve ever said about Jews. The fact is they have a paranoid cultural tendency to be wreckers, and Christendom would be vastly better off if they all just went to Israel and minded their own business there.

    Anyway, great poast! Keep ’em coming!
