Decent list but then why is he so insufferable and tradcath larping? With nothing innovative to say, he's not the kind of artistic spirit that's deserving of Nietzsche.

I've gamed with him before. He has read Nietzsche brother

I doubt he read even half of them

>>18425639
He doesn't think his followers should be reading him because he thinks most people should be illiterate, but before he made this decision he would recommend people read him. This is from 2017:

Right it's literally too late for paleoconservatism. It doesn't even make sense to talk about it from a non-historical perspective. The tail end of that was Paul Gottfried's stuff (which didn't make this list anyway). So read the 90s' books all you want, learn about how the system defused that by having the Clintons come in with a third party libertarian to split the right wing vote (this is going to happen again soon by the way). Things will keep moving left. We talk about equity now instead of equality. So to my original point, these books are not some edgy threat to anything just by reading them; they've been read for years.

>>
>>18426233
Yes, why is that bizarre?
>>
>>18426193
That was pretty funny. But he is going to be imprisoned on criminal charges if the state of New York gets its way. And if you don't think corrections were made during those four years to prevent four more years, you weren't paying attention. The system actually reichstagged him to make sure he had to leave office and be deplatformed.
>>
>>18426239
As far as I can tell, "tradcath" refers to someone who "discovers" traditional Catholicism and gets really into it, but you can tell their interest is superficial and mostly a compensatory mechanism for having no deeply-held values of their own. They will be super-into being "Catholic" for maybe 6-8 months and then lose interest and move on to something else and do the same thing with it. As you say it doesn't really apply to Nick Fuentes since as far as I can tell he's just a Catholic who takes his religion seriously. However there's a certain other type of anon who overuses terms like "tradcath" as a blanket insult directed at anyone who has beliefs of any sort. Again, it's a sort of compensatory mechanism for people who have no values of their own and feel empty, but don't know what to do about it. So, they go around denigrating anyone who does have beliefs in order to make themselves feel better about staring at porn all day and masturbating.
>>
>>18425762
I don't hate him. I think he's funny, and I'm glad that he's helping to shift the Overton window a bit. I just don't think he reads books lol. He's a pundit, not a public intellectual. Besides, where would he get the time, given his career?

Maybe he's read a few. I think Nick is intelligent, and I've met him before IRL. But he certainly hasn't read that list. It isn't reflected in his shows, his speeches, his writings, etc. They're /litpol/ memes that he listed as virtue-signaling.

How is it not "reflected" in his show?

He mentions books and writers sometimes, but that's not the point of the show, and as he's said himself people just want to see someone being funny and talking about the news.

Yeah bro if you just *think* hard enough you'll realize that Nietzsche's ideas are totally compatible with the ideology he relentlessly called digusting and life-denying, you just have a "surface level understanding."

>Fuentes's critiques of Nietzsche
Why would he bring high philosophical critiques into his show? Besides, he's not reading Nietzsche to critique him, he's reading him because he likes him.
>>
>>18427005
It's not a book he said "people should read." He said it was his single favorite book. I would love to hear him explain what he likes about Zarathustra.
>>
>>18427034
You don't know why he likes it, therefore he's just pretending. You're a reasonable chap. I've seen Bishop Barron talk about how much likes reading Nietzsche too. This is not something that's unfeasible unless you have some weird bias. It's kind of a meme among the left that people on the right don't read and I've experienced this first hand. They might act impressed with my Goodreads until I tell them my politics and then suddenly I couldn't possibly be so widely read. This is stupid.

Progressivism is going to die as the system transforms but this will be due to vast secular forces and not some specific political movement.

anyway Nick is a good polemicist and high-energy speaker but he is very young and I don't see that he has the skills or resources or knowledge to actually subvert the power structure. He's just a streamer and aside from Jan 6 he probably has not even come onto the radar of the real power elites
>>
>>18427093
Consider the difference between the questions of whether it is believable that, on the one hand, an adult priest who publicly discusses philosophy reads Nietzsche and has substantive takeways versus, on the other hand, whether it is believable that a teenage eceleb who's popular for memes and dunking on fucking Ben Shapiro does the same.
>>
>>18427028
>Why would he bring high philosophical critiques into his show?
It's none of my concern how he publishes his critiques, only that he makes them. If I'm supposed to believe he likes a book, I want to know why.
> Besides, he's not reading Nietzsche to critique him, he's reading him because he likes him.
How else are you to read a philosophical work? Either you think about what you're reading while you read it or you clap like a retard and say "pretty words me likey".

Reading books is not hard and there's nothing to gain among by claiming to like Nietzsche when you really don't. I'm already bored with this.

I suppose we're at an impasse if you think online personalities pushing a brand have "nothing to gain" through pretense. I don't know how to convince you of this fact other than to tell you to look at their behavior in general--everything they do is image/narrative conscious.

>>
>>18426627
Have you ever heard Nick talk about the differences between Magian, Apollonian, and Faustian civilizations? Even in paraphrased and analogous ways? No. Fuentes chose books like Decline of the West because they give off the impression that Fuentes believes that the west is heading to ruin (even if he doesn't apply the argumentation that those books used).

I think it's possible that he read a couple books. Probably Death of the West and Clash of Civilizations. But that's about it.

And if this is supposed to be a list of books that he genuinely appreciates, values, etc., then I'm surprised the Bible isn't on it. Big oversight IMO. Something only a pseud commentator would make.
>>
>>18427616
I have heard him talk about those things.
>>
>>18427631
I'm also heard of him talk about that. He also talks about Hobbes, Locke, and Nietzsche a lot
>>
>>18427631
As has been noted earlier, paleoconservatism is dead on arrival (last seen breathing around 9/11), and because of this total irrelevance to contemporary politics, there is no way to distinguish authenticity from performance in this genre of punditry. All this person can be said to have accomplished for certain is to attract a paying niche audience who he would be unknown to if not for the ability of the internet to connect and shape subcultures. That he can quote the chapter headings of muh decline really proves nothing. I could also fire up wikipedia and make a YouTube account and pretend to follow a dead political program. Enjoy your weekend at bernies.

Even assuming we've hit the tip of an iceberg of republican congressmen who "support" him, that doesn't do very much to resuscitate paleoconservatism, which will be structurally excluded from influence when 2030s Republicans in are either reduced to Ohio and Appalachia or running as 2010s Democrats. And to a much earlier point in the thread, if the system tolerates it, it's not threatening.

Evola is a very well known thinker, most people who know about him don't agree with him, but you're giving 4chan too much credit to say it dominates his readership.

Nietzsche is undoubtedly a figure of the Right, I never said he was literally right wing, just that he is considered essential by most to understand the spiritual roots of being right wing.

You're both retarded and can't stand the fact that someone reads one of the most famous books ever written.

>he's said repeatedly it's his favourite book and has recognised quotes from the book when randomly superchatted to him? No he's just faking it to make everyone think he's read it!

>>18428260
nietzsche is indeed a figure of the right. but the right strongly misreads him. if fuentes's understanding of nietzsche is right wing, that doesnt say much. right wing people read nietzsche because theyre right wing. theyre not right wing because they read nietzsche.
>nietzsche is essential to understand the spiritual roots of being right wing

>>
>>18425639
He famously defended being a Catholic and reading Nietzsche by saying "What, can't I read two books?"
>>
>>18428260
also, nietzsche and evola are pretty opposed. it takes a fair bit of effort to reconcile them, the only way that comes to my mind would be to not take evola at face value in his esotericism and spiritual/religious beliefs, which are very critical to his thought. if evola is a prophet in the same sense that nietzsche is a "prophet", hes simply a dollar store nietzsche that doesnt go nearly as far or as radical as nietzsche in his philosophy. if his spiritual insights are supposed to make him a prophet in a non-nietzschean, genuinely religious way, then he has nothing in common with nietzsche except for a respect for similar value structures (e.g. ancient hinduism or something)
>>
>>18428279
Who says Fuentes' understanding of Nietzsche is "right wing"? Naturally any real understanding of him will be more subtle than that, but what is a truly retarded understanding of Nietzsche is to say he isn't more "right wing" (emphasis on the quotation marks) than "left wing", any kind of spiritual background to being right wing, whenever that term takes on a more eternal sense, for the most part can be found in Nietzsche. The emphasis on hierarchy, power, individualism, aristocratism, and Antiquity, of which the latter was interpreted by much of the 20th century as defining an ultratraditionalism, radically traditional as in prior to Christian morals;--it is a going back after all,-- and may be a brash terming, is not entirely wrong.

>Nietzsche is rolling in his grave
Yet, it seems you are the dogmatic who cannot understand the subtleties of Nietzsche's thought. You think Nietzsche is universally against all individuals who have conservative and antisemitic beliefs, you think wrong.

look, i just dont think fuentes reflects a serious engagement with nietzsche. anyone can read nietzsche how they like, but the problem i see with a lot of right wing readings is that they confuse the new nietzschean superman with the old prechristian 'lions' of antiquity. but no, you can be right wing and like nietzsche. i just dont think somebody who really likes nietzsche would like to be part of anything labelled right wing OR left wing. and fuentes is strongly aligned with the right.
>>18428356
>>18428366
evola and nietzsche just happen to be big memes for the right, what im pointing out is that they always appear next to each other as if they have a similar core. hating modernity but in a non-economic (non-marxist) way. i feel like the right aestheticizes nietzsche too much and doesnt critically engage with him enough. i just think the right's nietzsche is very neutered and tame compared to how powerful his ideas really are. nietzsche eclipses ideology. but by all means, be right wing and like nietzsche. i was right wing and liked nietzsche. i still like nietzsche and am no longer right wing.
>>
>>18428340
>>18428401
to add, nietzsche's idea of 'power' is very different from the right's idea of 'power,' where for nietzsche power is will and its expression and for the right power is contained in already-existing ideological value categories. nietzsches power is creative, original, destructive of systems, and irreducible to ideology or category. he values artistocratism and antiquity for (apparent) different reasons than the right, which sees aristocratism as having inherent value and antiquity as being *ideologically* superior to modernity. nietzsche isnt arguing we should return to antiquity, i think for him thats impossible.

this doesnt sound like nietzsche at all. this is again mistaking the superman for the lion. hes opposing the (nietzchean) ideas of two opposing value systems, the christian/semetic vs. the prechristian/presemetic. but nietzsche adamantly does not approve one over the other, he only understands them. his vision for the future is wholly, radically new and different.
>appealing to morality
no one who genuinely likes nietzsche thinks the problem is that we have the 'wrong' morals.
again and again, the right thinks that nietzsche values the inverse of the christian value system, which is a common mistake but deeply wrong.

Must have been an incredibly boring show then, for the most part. Most of it is a dry analysis of the last few hundred years of Western philosophy.

He quotes Notes from the Underground in the same video, it's pretty obvious to see how one can use these two books to talk about modern society.

What possible first hand knowledge could 17 year old high school student Nick Fuentes have had for you? . Every one of these zoomer "politics" channels is some manchild or literal child giving his opinion on a wikipedia article they read or youtube video they watched, which they pass off as deep research because the mental illness parade that is your generation cannot tell the difference.

First of all he's 22 and your brain is stuck in 2016. Second of all yes, human being interpret events and exchange their interpretations with each other, and some people are more successful at doing this than others.

>>18428977
>First of all he's 22 and your brain is stuck in 2016.
He started his program when he was 17. He was explaining to you how the media *really* worked, and who *really* controlled the world, based on all the great knowledge he had acquired as a child.

"Interpreting events" is a very charitable description of reading 4chan and reddit

Guys the only thing Nick likes about Nietzsche is the Will to Power shit, and his views on suffering/ life. He thinks N was retarded for being an materialist improover.

From what I’ve seen of him Catholicism seems to be an easy way to justify dunking of thots and ‘degeneracy’

What’s this kid’s endgame? He’s a 21 year old college dropout who broadcasts his very hateful views on minorities, Jews, women, and the LGBTQ+ to a crowd of susceptible teens barely younger than he is. Does he plan on going into politics? All the popular mainstream conservatives like Shapiro and Crowder pretty much hate him too
>>
>>18429095
He's dressed like a news anchor and making a serious face while he talks about, what, the increasingly harebrained schemes possible to stop the United States from becoming politically Californian by the time his balls drop? Hey kids check out Huntington and Buchanan. They're from the nineties!

I'd tell you but you have 90 IQ and wouldn't comprehend it. You also sound like a bad faith, degenerate of a person so yeah. Keep listening to Chapo or whatever it is you fags do.

Can't find it, it's before he had the current background on his show. You must know this guy makes daily 3 hour long shows and his stuff is constantly deleted from youtube. He took out the book just to read a small quote from it, described it as esoteric literature or something of the sort. If I recall correctly he did so after reading from Notes from Underground.

Younger Nick was actually very literate. I watched him back in 2017/2018 and he used to talk all the time about that he spent most of his nights reading.
He used to quote Nietzsche and Dostoyevsky back in the day and do actual intellectual shows.

So just mindlessly consoom and don't actually think about or synthesize new information you read into your worldview?
>>

Yeah it was weird to see him not even a year later go on this "fuck books they're useless" tirade.
I don't know if he still believes it but I really liked his old shows where he'd talk about the stuff he was reading.
Can attest to hearing him talk about every book on that list so I guess it's funny seeing that people ITT do not believe he's read them (seeing how Nick acts now I can understand why)

Understanding what went wrong to get us to this point is vital to going forward and fixing those issues. It's the progressives who just charge forward and keep banging their heads against walls by claiming every failure of their ideology is just a result of not being radical enough and not changing society enough.

Who is fixing what? You think you vote your way out of California? You think at some point the curated voting blocs of the electorate will just say "progressivism and its consequences have been a disaster for us as clients of the state, let's vote for paleoconservatives"? Progressivism hasn't failed the managerial class and it hasn't failed their clients. It hasn't even failed you, since your views are one of the pathologies it has been working to eradicate. So there is been a stunning success in that regard. When the funeral boom hits the baby boomers there will no longer be competitive interparty elections, only intraparty, like in California and New York where the die off didn't even need to happen to get there. So find something else to do than shill for this stuff. You are very poorly read if you think old political tracts solve present issues.

I don't know why you're trying to argue that voting is the solution since only modern cucked conservative political philosophy has the view that democracy is inviolate. The whole reason you go back is to get the views of ACTUAL conservatives, monarchists who thought democracy was the mistake it's shown itself to be. Then you read the Spanish nationalists to get the solution.

He used to be very /lit/ friendly and came across as wicked smart for his age but they made him shush.

That entire list is Anti-Amuttican political system redpills which starkly conflicts with his bluepilled Amuttican politics E-celeb environment he has to work within, so he learned how to dial it back for his own sake.

I think he's a good guy and a smart guy but after all his efforts in politics he realized he's trapped in the maze like the rest of us and he has veered onto a different course that allows him to stay afloat.
