Death Cast Down from the Proud Tower – James LaFond

In small societies, such as hunter-gatherers, warrior tribes, or rural farmers, honor and reputation form a large part of one’s personal stock and trade. In larger civilizations, however, where power is measured in money and influence, honor becomes an inconvenience to accumulating wealth for the unscrupulous. The last honorable man – in a society of scoundrels – is at a distinct disadvantage. Today in America, or should we say the broader Western World, find ourselves at a point where the rewards for controlling others, and the punishments for those that resist that control, are straining the remnants of a once honorable tradition of truth, justice, and a spirit of independence. Tonight we are joined by James LaFond, author and anthropologist on the rise and fall of many such civilizations throughout history.

    The redefinition of the word “conspiracy” as a conspiracy in the original sense of the word, kicked of my conversation with Kevin MacDonald titled “The Moral Individual Vs Acting As One”:

    https://redice.tv/red-ice-radio/the-moral-individual-vs-acting-as-one

    Regarding “honor”, which I define as “moral territory”, I’ve noticed the phrase “honor culture” is increasingly cropping up as a shibboleth of contempt among those averse to facing the fact that life and death conflict is inevitable. These seems to be most common among those aspiring to shielding themselves with the flesh, blood and bone of others without according to those others the honor that must go with that sacrifice. The fallback position from the most obvious manifestations of decadence is frequently expressed by monarchists who insist that the sovereign must be protected from challenges to single combat, even in times of peace when wartime oaths of service are no longer in effect. “The King’s Champion” comes to mind, as such a peacetime shield who is not accorded the sovereignty by the one he shields. This tendency to place the flesh, blood and bone of others in the way of facing reality is frequently justified by the aspirants to ersatz sovereignty as does Curt Doolittle in claiming that the virtue of Europeans is due, in large measure, to culling the population of undesirables by placing them on the front lines.

      Hehehe, your avatar picture looks like you’re dealing with a wet fart. I don’t get the tendency for intellectuals to look dour and pissed off in their pictures. Young negro males are infamous for the same thing in just about any picture of them. That aside, great convo on RI. Just that damn profile avatar.

        Sir, you have dishonored me and I WILL have SATISFACTION! Abuse your dog by naming him “intellectual” if you must take your sick anonymous cowardice out on some innocent creature to compensate, but to treat a man as a dog is to venture your very life in that pursuit!

    I just finished “Book of the New Sun” by Gene Wolfe. It is a fantasy/science fiction series, one which has great emotional depth not typical of the genre. It is not surprising that James LaFond is a fan.

    Always happy to see new episodes. James is one of the very best every time he comes on the show.

    And Hans was correct, we still need an episode on dairy!

    As a tribute to James I listened to half of this while walking a five mile round trip for convenience store cigars late at night with an SA dagger in my belt in case I needed it.

    Kidding of course. I walked because somebody parked behind me. Anyway, still felt like it was a tribute to James with all the gangbangers from the city over riding the streets of my suburb while I walked alone. The dagger was the biggest knife I had on hand to walk with, so I grabbed it, but hey, if self defence while white is illegal, may as well have some style.

    1:09 “…a society that is mentally ill…”

    We’ve been gaslighted for over half a century. It’s enough to drive anyone mentally ill. I didn’t really understand it until after 9-11. I thought some people were just crazy but after 9-11, building 7 specifically, I finally realized it was ALL gaslighting and once you see it, you can’t unsee it. Another aspect of this I don’t think you are sufficiently acknowledging is that people are really not as crazy as the media lets on. The crazies are who they promote.
