Believing that freedom isn't a social construct and is in fact the natural state of man is both a historically insane position to take and why liberalism can't defend its freedoms from leftist takeover
Freedom, if that's the goal, can only be maintained when you *understand* that it's a social construct. It doesn't just spring out of nowhere

To keep it, you either have to construct a strong culture of honor, or an entire framework of law dedicated to protecting it
Despite some of their loftier propaganda, the Founding Fathers obviously didn't believe that freedom was "natural."

Why in the world would they need to construct the Constitution unless freedom is in fact a social construct?
Believing that freedom is some iron law of nature is one of the most doltish takes I can think of

Guess what? Your enemy doesn't think this, at all. So if he keeps showing up to the field, and you don't even think there *is* a field, you lose. Every time. Until the end.

Look, if this is the American Spanish Civil War, you are all on the side of the Nationalists, you idiots. Turn the firing squads on each other *after* you've defeated the commies, not while you're in the middle of it, you colossal jokes, *that's* when you get to settle grievances
Yes of course if you're a true lib NRx or modern "fascists" (lol) are your enemies

All of your territory is occupied by progressives, meanwhile you keep shooting at each other to slay any "true liberalism," yielding it all to the real enemy. Imagine being this stupid
These people are so owned by progressivism they would rather cede all ground to it on the mere *chance* that siding against the real enemy results in a Peron, Franco, Pinochet, or even Trump

Okay. Enjoy progressive rule, idiots. It's what you deserve

Yes—the glitch is a misunderstanding of your audience and your purpose. "Leftists are hypocrites" does have a use, but it's not to win over independents or whatever

It's to convince soft rightists to harden their stance by showing them how *they* still believe in leftism
This isn't something that can be achieved through cheap or superficial "gotchas." The left is always running leftward, so its right-now policies will always be in contradiction with some of its earlier "principles"

This isn't a weakness, it's a strength
Taking them at face value is to admit on some level that *you* believe in their earlier principles. Otherwise why are you attacking the contradiction and not the original principle itself?

Shouldn't the principle be the real weak point that you can slam down on?

This stems from the struggle to assert where "neoliberalism," post-WW2 ruling order, comes from, and who is to blame for it

So it is popular to say that it's "people with money, who don't want us to have it": and this is sort of true. But the underlying ideology predates them
Everyone *wants* to know who's to blame, all of a sudden, because neoliberalism is clearly failing, so we have to identify which of our enemies (and thus whose values) must be rejected

I am not immune from this. Take with grain of salt. But the cause and effect is everything
The below is true, strictly speaking. This is about the Rockefeller Foundation. I am just going to trust Wikipedia on this one: so, it wanted to pursue the interests of health, birth control... the Science! of the day. We already see ideology creeping in

Right, this was an explicitly progressive program. What they do goes way beyond simple disavowal of their failure

Progressivism always redirects blame for its past failures to its political enemies, which it then uses to justify and coerce its next set of "solutions."
Progressivism is able to do this, of course, because it controls the narrative machine (the academy/media), but also because this control lets it shed its skin over and over again

This allows progs to look back at what they've done and say "No, we would *never* do that now!"
Well maybe you wouldn't, not in that exact same way. But you still hold the same core *values* that let you did that, that caused this thing that's now a great tragedy

So, in 2021, you might not be rounding up the Natives to liberate them through your transcendent education

The basic leftist urge is terror at the natural world and what it takes to exist within it, that's why they want to gray-goo it, so they can simply exist as yeast, indistinguishable and without consciousness

Nietzsche and Uncle Ted best diagnose this from the right
I don't know Hegel. But based on this analysis, he and the Marxism that built on him is the leftist urge attempting to use the liberal ruling framework to employ reason, specifically through material analysis, to convince us to fight for the gray-goo world it yearns to return to.
The Founding Fathers, as Moldbug identified, deployed a right-wing coup to arrest this process, through the Constitution.

It lasted for a while, and is still fighting a little. The post-modernists are the attempt to bring their Lockean reason to its conclusion: final gray goo

Therefore the symmetrical response to break this propaganda, whose method is to humiliate you, is to humiliate *it*:

That was the purpose of Trump, our first Troll President, who understood that there is no "reasoning" with those whose goal is to humiliate you
This is an ideology that spits in your face, and then belly-laughs as you do backflips to explain why, as its warm spittle drips down your lips, we must be "more civil, more liberal" than it: we will just "reason" people out of their frenzy

lol, no

Liberalism had a nice run there, it was very pleasant for a while. But it's proven so impotent at leading that it can be taken over by a newsroom of 25-year-old "communists" with cow rings who spend more on their SSRIs and therapists than a healthy person spends on their home
