Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later.Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    “His subject was always the violent destruction of the self – the idea that civilization was largely fucked, hurtling towards some awful end of its own making.”

    Totally agree.

    “and then declining to take it.”

    Less convinced about that. Land still appears to want Capital to consume the earth and humanity via a technological apocalypse: http://www.xenosystems.net/re-accelerationism/

    It’s just that now he sees NRx as more likely to bring this about than doing philosophy seminars to jungle choons while mashed.

    “He subsequently moved to China”

    What’s strikes me about this is that the old (pre-1991) retort to leftists was “If that’s what you want then why don’t you move to Russia?” Most of the notable NRx folks are content to live in the US (correct me if I’m wrong) or other liberal(ish) democracies. Land went to an authoritarian state with a strong focus on capitalism (of a particular variety) and technology. Walked the talk.

    Altho I’m not sure how his desire for a techno-capital apocalypse meshes with their desire to reign over bitcoin-funded seasteads.

    Land’s writing style is distinctive. It consists of a series of performed pronouncements heavily laden with adverbs. Interesting ideas or brain-catching phrases pop out at regular intervals but it’s not really trying to make an argument so much paint a picture. Sometimes that picture is distinct but more often it’s an abstract impressionist blur with dabs of pomposity at the corners.

    I can see why it’s attractive to guys in their 20s – the constant reiteration that it’s all Important and Exciting and Clever (look at the words! and the references!). But as I age I just can’t be arsed with it. Especially as it gets more entangled with all that naughty “racism”.

    Wake me up when the apocalypse is over.

    “America is a communist country. This can be interpeted in myriad ways. All of these interpretations are absolutely true. Because America is a Communist country.”

    Moldbug sounds like the sort of man you can’t argue with.
