This is bad advice from a rootless cosmopolitan:
And if you’re afraid to speak your mind freely and fearlessly in front of your friends and family, then you would be well-advised to eject them from your life without hesitation or remorse.
Those dratted liberals!
This is libertarianism in its most antinatalist form. Part of growing up is learning that humans exist on a spectrum from evil to stupid to garbage, and freedom of association just means you get to pick your flavor of poison (cue muh magic wypepo). The problem with America* is that we haven’t yet gotten the hang of living in the same place for a couple thousand years in a row, and so our conflict response tends to be white flight: to retreat and purity spiral. That’s why LARPers are always talking about colonizing Mars instead of merely patrolling their thots—they are too disagreeable to manage the stress of all the little social conflicts which constitute a static civilization. I completely understand this sentiment, as my instinctual conflict response is also a binary On/Off type of thing. Constant, low-level, nonviolent social harassment and reprisals for microaggressions for tiny gains are super gay. It is also how struggles are resolved within advanced civilizations and you can’t have one without the other.
Normies suck. Wise men know this. But there are only two people in a society who don’t have some fear of social reprisals for their speech, the king and the leper. The king can speak the truth without fear because he has the power to back it up, and the leper can speak the truth without fear because no one cares what the powerless think. If you disown your family and flee the country every time somebody betrays you, that makes you the latter. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the culture war will be won at the dinner table. Even Chad Kavanaugh has had to spend two weeks (three weeks now?) in a social media bitchfest with some ugly thot who dreamed up her strategy while diddling herself to Draco Malfoy fanfics, while the entire first world came to a screeching halt. And then he WON. So your options are to Game your family and friends and win or to swear off material concerns and go live in a tree stump. Diogenes may have been happy but he wasn’t Alt-Right because the Alt-Right is about winning and Diogenes never conquered anybody. There’s nothing morally wrong with having a few monks around but that’s not how White Children are made.
You don’t have to be a cuck, but the meme holds: be patient with your NPCs. The key is small acts of persuasion, never budge in your frame, and repetition, repetition, repetition. The normie’s strength is also her weakness.
*That and we sacrifice more children to Moloch than anybody in history, and deserve to die under fifty miles of heaped brimstone. But that’s a different post.
