Thanks, I 8767 ve actually read Scott 8767 s 8775 nutshell 8776 post before, but seeing as it was written by someone who is vehemently opposed to NR, I figured that it wouldn 8767 t be all that representative of the true beliefs of modern neoreactionaries. Granted, if anyone could properly steel-man his opponents 8767 position, Scott can, but still, he 8767 s only human
Your portrayal of racial profiling upthread as 8775 impose a significant cost to minority groups in the name of small marginal benefits to the population as a whole 8776

My understanding is there are quite a few blue-tribe Christians, who are pretty quiet about it, and are somewhat embarrassed by the media constantly reinforcing the alleged link between the red tribe and the church.

He seems to defend a considerably more nuanced position nowadays, compared to his original 8775 liberals use A and B, conservatives use all of them 8776 .
This was a major dynamic in the conquest of the Americas. Tribe A lives on the seashore and fights with inland Tribe B. Europeans come, Tribe A is exposed to their diseases and gets hurt bad. So Tribe A allies with the Europeans, because Tribe A now feels very vulnerable to those evil Tribe Bs. Eventually the Europeans take over Tribe A territory and Tribe A isn 8767 t significant any more, and its Tribe B that is getting hit with disease, alcohol, social disruption, and feels very vulnerable to even more inland Tribe C. Wash, rinse, repeat. There are obviously nuances and complications, but the basic model is pretty robust.
It 8767 s like keying a car, if you see people as an individual even if they have a bumper sticker that you hate you you might rail against that point when you see it but you won 8767 t key their car because you know it costs an individual money time and expense.
Isn 8767 t the whole point of the motte and bailey to invalidate those opinions of the group that are indefensible by pointing out that fact that they are retreating away from their bailey to their backup motte?
That is, my lefty buddies think the right wants the same things as them, and is just incredibly shitty as implementing it. The great mystery to them is why the right can 8767 t see that the way to the left 8767 s goals is by the left 8767 s means. Call it the What 8767 s The Matter With Kansas effect, or the Tigana effect, or what have you. John Oliver 8767 s recent speech on the estate tax was as perfect an example of this as you 8767 ll ever see.
One way blue people could really express tolerance for red people would be in cases where red people try to enter blue turf, the biggest example being academia, which as this author said is almost 95% blue. How about trying to find conservative students and scholars, and sponsoring them for academic positions. How about encouraging conservative speakers to appear on campus, or looking for conservative schoolteachers or text books. That would definitely be expressing viewpoint tolerance.
