Last day I read Michael Anissimov’s Anonymity and the Right on moreright.net. It is an inspiring work for me, just like moreright.net and Anissimov.
But I have serious doubts about the value of going out of closet for all Neoreactionaries, or in Anissimov’s words, to make the first jump. As a Turkish Neoreactionary, I think that this is not the right time for making the first jump in Turkey for Turkish Neoreactionaries.
First, I need to elaborate my views.
Anissimov is certainly right about that:
Today, the neoreactionary Right is like a class full of first graders at the edge of a small stream. To get what they want, they need to cross over to the other side. But everyone is afraid to make the first jump. To avoid perpetual leftward drift which ends in Pol Pot, the class will need to make the crossing, even if some of them temporarily lose their livelihood. A flawless crossing with no casualties is not possible.
This is absolutely true in the USA, or any other Western State. But, the thing can be quite serious in Turkey, I think that it is more serious than the USA.
The Cthulhu is swimming very fast in Turkey. A so-called right-wing and Islamist (and also certainly demotist and corrupted ) government is getting out of control, and a left-wing and secular (also demotist, anti-religious, specially anti-Islamist) opposition who had gone mad tries to bring more modernism to Turkish soil. A third opposition (demotist and Kurdist) tries to create an independent, at least autonomous Kurdistan at the southeastern Turkey.
What I mean that it can be said that Turkey has crossed to another level, it became harder and more dangerous to going out of the closet and say “I’m a Neoreactionary” in Turkey than the USA. This is not some kind of whining like a fucking faggot, this is a statement about Turkey’s current situation.
There will be people who lose their jobs, but this is a price that must be paid to get the future we want.
Anissimov wrote. That is not only correct in Turkey, but it is worse.
Yesterday, (it is almost 2 AM in Turkey) the Turkish government banned YouTube, Twitter and Facebook (the ban on Facebook and Twitter had been lifted), with regard to the spreading of a picture that shows a hostage case of a prosecutor by a communist terrorist organization. Last week, the wordpress.com itself was banned (later on, that ban was revoked). Google and Gmail probably banned thirty minutes ago (I am serious but they can abandon from banning of Google). Vkontakte banned last month. I use VPN programs and TOR Network, when I am surfing on the Internet, I also had to use TOR Network when I replied to the comments at my blog.
If someone writes something that irritates someone who is a high-ranking person in Turkey, wordpress.com could be banned at Turkey in just four hours. For instance, if I write a severe criticism about the founder of Turkey and a high-ranking Kemalist irritated from my shit, wordpress.com could be banned after four hours, unless they don’t remove my post, and there is real possibility that I could be imprisoned for three years due to the Turkish Law 5816 (The Law Concerning Crimes Committed Against Atatürk). If I criticize the government, I could be imprisoned with an excuse like that I insulted to government officials, etc.
How someone expect that I can openly declare myself as a Neoreactionary in a country is going full dictatorship? How can openly declare myself as a Neoreactionary, if I am one of few people who are influenced by Neoreaction? How can openly declare my identity when it is almost inevitable that I would be on trial? When Moldbug declared his identity after he commenced to write on Unqualified Reservations?
True, anonymity is holding us back. True, we need some red and black dots. Especially in Turkey. But, Turkish state is too powerful for now. All Islamic Neoreactionaries should follow the way of Taqiya , a kind of Islamic dissimulation. At least for now. As Islamic Neoreactionaries, becoming open targets for now would be like fighting with 3GW strategy and tactics against a FSD (Full Spectrum Dominance) entity, which is the Cathedral itself. Our time has not come yet.
This is not a weeping ceremony like “OY VEY, I AM BEING SO OPPRESSED BY THE ARCH-PROGRESSIVE TURKISH ISLAMISTS.”. This is not a shitty comparison between Turkey and USA. I did not say that Americans should be proud of their so-called freedoms. I just say that Turkey has crossed the river and is slowly (for now) becoming the Sweden of the Middle East. Interestingly for outsiders, Turkish progressivism had imitated the American progressivism and surpassed it to a certain extent.
By the way, when I saw this , I became very happy, (If this is real) seeing another person in Turkey who are interested to NRx and to financially help to NRx and Anissimov.
