'Experts' have revealed that The Guardian is responsible for much that is wrong with the Western world.

It is hilarious how deeply religious the supposedly secular Left has become.

All their arguments always lead to the same few responses: moral pollution, taboo violations, accusations of heresy, and the idea of Racism/Bigotry pretty much replicating the idea of Satan—always lurking, always the ultimate cause of all evil and suffering, most present when seemingly most absent, the demon that lurks in every heart.

Not only has the Left become very feminine, it seems to embody one specific type of feminine: the Church Lady.

The Social Justice faith is the new Moral Majority, a buzzing hive of scolding moralists who cannot rest knowing some of us don't think or act like them and who refuse to accept their enlightened guidance.

Thanks, Levi!

I don't agree with everything Aporia writes but it is a refreshing perspective that keeps me thinking. The fact that the Guardian is doing hit pieces shows you're having an impact. Keep it up!

Global Project Against Hate and Extremism is very Orwellian. It's hilarious.

Thinking of Bo and Noah as hateful extremists is so preposterous.

Thanks for discrediting The Guardian by highlight its foundational association with slavery. The Guardian is playing cheap by blackballing Aporia so it deserves to smeared because of its history. Equally corrupt is the scandal ridden Southern Poverty Law Center.

"She told Wilson that Rufo is “hanging around with some seriously nasty people”. Did you get that? We’re not just nasty; we’re seriously nasty."

When one endeavors to accomplish something, it is prudent to be serious. So there's that.

But kidding aside, Aporia is doing an excellent job...keep it up. Flack (flak) is always most prevalent when you are over the target.

This is a good thing for Aporia Magazine's growth. Simone & Malcolme Collins, of the "Based Camp" pronatalist podcast, remarked how when they had fairly neutral, objective articles written about them, their viewer count had been largely unaffected. When more sensationalist, negative things had been written about them, however, they would notice a substantial rise in viewers.

It's bordering on pathetic how much ideological capture there is in the legacy media.

Lot's of people have exposed it, but the more the better. Here's a podcast that helps, with walk throughs of some articles with critique: https://unwarpreality.substack.com/

Elite Human Capital rejects unscientific Blank Statism. 💯

since they say that rufo is a literal white nationalist what do they care who he's linked to? shouldn't u be worried about being linked to him?

By now, we should stop calling them wokists. We should call them what they are. They are Marxist socialists.

Expand full comment

Why? Wokists have their roots in intersectional groups like the combahee river collective. You would lose that nuance. I prefer the term "race reductionist"

That's "point and sputter," not splutter.

Is it actually true that Richard Lynn self-described himself as a "scientific racist" as I see online? If so, it was a major mistake because it concedes the incorrect idea that believing in group differences is racist to these people.

I think it would be worth it to write an article solely on this issue so that when you Google Richard Lynn on scientific racism perhaps it would come up towards the top.

Thanks. Good to know. It's rare that things I read on the internet almost make me angry, but the way they slandered Lynn like that gets me close.

Though I disagree about effective altruism and "status." Longtermism caused them to lose status in the minds of people because of how "out there" it is, and the point of EA is to get people to do more good. If EA started sounding the alarm about dysgenics, they would be slandered and ignored like Lynn is. I don't think that's a fair critique.

I grew up broadly on the left of British politics and once admired the Guardian for its investigative journalism pieces. It's a tragedy and a shame what it has sunk to.

These days, I continuously receive notifications or prompts to give the Guardian money so it can carry on its work. The irony is that its hit pieces like this and the Guardian's descent into identatarian, lazy narratives that have pushed me to pay for more thoughtful content like Aporia over the nonsense that the Guardian now spouts. I disagree with some of what Aporia puts out but at least you can disagree or put forward an argument without the retort being 'you hang around with nasty people.'

The Guardian wouldn’t do a hit piece on me even though my frenemy on Facebook tried and tried and tried and tried.
