Nihilism, Futurist Traditionalism and Conservationism

Brett Stevens featured on Counter-Currents

An unusual approach to conservatism, yet one that would have seemed sensible 200 years ago:


When you think of conservative you think of fundamentalist religion, rock-solid proven formulas, social restraint and a seemingly religious need to punish the bad and have some heroes we praise above all else.

But existentialism, or the idea that we grow as we interact with life and therefore that life should involve great beauty and promise, is actually a conservative concept. (I’m setting aside theological existentialism, or “existence before essence,” because science has basically replaced predetermination with genetic determinism.)

In my mind, existentialism is a way of saying that we cannot live for either (a) a central authority or (b) an obsessive morality of helping others. Instead we must live through reverence for life, and through celebrating its beauty, transcend its ugliness. In other words, we don’t exist to fight evil; we fight evil so that we have more beauty, more pleasure, more adventure!
