The visible hand.

/The visible hand.

For decades there has been an ideological contradiction on the right between the faith in Adam Smith’s invisible hand and a more Nietzchean conception of decisive men being decisive. A failure to understand how central that concept is/was in rightwing thought is what makes it seem mysterious that supposed libertarians could morph so readily into crypto-Nazis but even a cursory look at Ayn Rand’s heroes reveals that adoration of the decisive man was always going to trump abstract ideas about quasi-alogrithmic processes. The fear of government and of regulation among the right has (aside from a few) always been a fear of the supposedly weak using democracy to manage the strong.

Camestros Felapton on the right.

From a broader post reading and analyzing the works of Vox Day so, and I quote, “you don’t have to.”
