Sorry, I have to point this out.
You can spend your whole day sharing racist memes together on Twitter, you can tattoo swastikas on your forehead, but if you were against the 1st lockdown in March 2020 from the start, if you immediately knew “this is wrong”, you don’t have it in you to be a Nazi.
“What do you mean, I’m really racist, all brown people need to go back to their own country.”
Yeah there’s the irony. You shit on any authoritarianism you have actually experienced. Yet you think to yourself “I would’ve been his first man.” You don’t have it in you to be an authoritarian. You just enjoy shitting on the system and opt for the most straightforward way to do it.
But I read the interviews with the people who ran the extermination camps, because I want to understand the human condition. They were not “racists”. They were not “far right”. They were just weak, docile mediocre men, who got to experience a little power. You can only pity them. They genuinely had no principles or ideological convictions. They were just average men, adjusting to a sick social context, to reap the mediocre benefits it offered them.
That’s the problem the survivors ran into. Upon meeting the men they believed to be devils, they just met weak, docile, order-following mediocre men. And there could be no satisfaction in seeing them ruined.
There is one interview by a Jewish survivor with a camp guard. It it the most unsatisfying, frustrating thing possible, because there is no trace of hate. It is just a weak cowardly man, constantly choosing the easiest road ahead of him, ultimately culminating in the death of his wife after a gang rape. There is no catharsis.
The real nazi’s were mostly murdered in the night of the long knives, or on the front. The men operating the camps were just weak, simple men. They were genuinely not ideologues, any more than a hog farmer is motivated by hate of pigs.
You don’t find those men on Twitter or your local LSWM militia. You find them running the financial administration for a slaughterhouse, or occupying a management position in Royal Dutch Shell, or working for a consulting agency like McKinsey, advising the Sacklers on how to sell more opioids.
The best way to check who you would have been in the past, is to ask yourself if you eat meat. If you can’t get yourself to eat meat, then you just really don’t have the cruelty in you to participate in that machine.
Don’t let women know this, they like a man who has a bit of cruelty in him. They don’t want to fuck Maximilian Kolbe. They want to fuck Ted Bundy. It’s one of those cruelties of nature and probably the main reason female promiscuity is so stigmatized.
Neo-nazism is mostly just hipsterism. The difference between the “alt-right” and everyone else is that they’re just honest about noticing what everyone else pretends not to notice.
Just as naturally anti-authoritarian LSWMs overcompensate, by trying to identify themselves with cruelty they are incapable of, the natural authoritarians overcompensate too. Ask your neighbors who called the police on you in March 2020 because they saw you leaving your house too often, how they feel about Donald Trump and the “alt-right”.
Don’t rub it in their noses. I never meet anyone nowadays who claims they supported the lockdowns. Just be happy for them, that we happen to live in the sort of societal conditions in which it doesn’t matter what they are.
If you are a human being that is.
