Virgin Primitivist vs. Chad Transhumanist
by Anatoly Karlin
A couple of memes that you can only find in the most autistically glorious corners of /pol/.
If we view history as an evolutionary competition between societies and ideas, it seems obvious that primitivism would be the most self-defeating – and consequently, self-refuting – ideology on the planet. While transhumanism is accelerationism maxed, the most competitive and adaptive ideology.
Thing is, both of them are transhumanist. It’s just that the Half Life stalker is the sort of transhumanism you’d get when your society is run by bugmen. Whereas the overman belongs to the Gold caste of the Red Rising trilogy, a product of a technologically stagnant archaeo-futurist space empire. More aesthetically pleasing than the bugman, to be sure, but either would be crushed by the Chad transhumanist.
