Now Amazon is almost certainly not a diehard reactionary organization. But it is serving our ends by hastening the demise of the publishing industry's business model. It is seriously unlikely that it is an accident that nearly all literature published today has what I call 'authorial affirmative action' and 'histogram distortion' (by this I mean significantly skewing the demographics of who does what in fiction or news relative to the actual frequencies in the real world). They are in fact effectively part of the mainstream media and their destruction through slowly choking their lines of supply only helps us. All hail the heroes of Reaction!
Only the founder of Craigslist is higher in our constellation of stars.
Our regular readers know, of course, that I favor gaining support from people by appealing to their actual interests rather than attempting to spin a web of cosmic justice and prancing unicorns over my cause. Many of our most useful allies not only will not like us as persons or as a group, but will actively dislike us. So be it. Those reactionaries that are Christians like myself can use this as an opportunity to love some of those that consider us enemies.
