Weimerica Weekly – Episode 18 – Breaking The Grip Of Weimerica Technology

Welcome to Weimerica Weekly Episode 18. The podcast airs every Wednesday.

This week’s Weimerica Weekly is on technology and the current state of Weimerica’s technology zombies. How do we break its grip? Nick Land on the Zuckerberg photo. Rachel Marsden on the same photo.

Weimerica Weekly is a podcast hosted by Ryan Landry that touches on the cultural, political and sexual topics that fill the mindspace of our United States of Weimerica. The politicization of all cultural and social degeneracy is examined with a focus on how it fits together.

Weimerica Weekly is produced by the Hestia Society and distributed by Social Matter.

  1. Best episode so far in my opinion. No but seriously, any Neoreactionary worth his salt has to prioritize this problem of digital technology because what conclusions can we draw about ideal forms of government based on historical case studies that don’t include iPhones? This variable is extremely confounding, not only because of salient characteristics like potential for addiction but ones as deep and obscure as altering how humans perceive their environment and how natural tendencies honed by evolution whither and die because of it. Maybe we need some of our natural tendencies to be toned down, maybe not, the point is we’re running this global experiment without controls and changing the parameters with each new “innovation”.

    I think Landry’s verdict of “choice” is resigned but accurate. We can’t prescribe a cultural solution to a cultural problem, so we must fallback on individuals which may eventually overcome the accepted degenerative practices with a “better way”. However, the soft suggestions of smelling the flowers is only a superficial first step and there is much to be said, written and argued about the practical use of technology. The benefits of effective self-restraint in this realm are largely unrecognized and certainly unappreciated by the wider culture that has a vested interest in zombifying themselves.

    I personally grapple with this issue daily as an all-remote software engineer, I know I’m a case study in the baseline degenerative effects of the digital. Regardless of ameliorative steps taken, we’re all similarly trapped to some extent because we don’t truly understand the problem(s) yet. I’m eager to hear more suggestions, anecdotes, guidelines and grand unifying theories on this subject.

    Thanks for this report from the trenches Landry, as always, vivid and poignant.

  2. The notion that one must be in the know of every current event and happening in the world seems to be an entirely privileged mindset. The white working class (and black and hispanic for that matter) have been consumed by the filth that their superiors peddle, but even a conversation with your average Joe James Smith is more refreshing than a conversation with a starbucks liberal. Given the choice between sports and a beer or white supremacy and a latte, I’ll take the former every single time.

    Those words Matt Drudge wrote will stick in my mind forever.

    There was a time not long ago where a man was satiated by seeing his wife and children in front of him and knowing that the world while vast and the universe even larger, was made for him – and the only way he needed to make good on this was to attend a sacrifice every Sunday and do his best to live a holy life.

  3. Great episode. I was especially taken with your point about people conflating knowledge with ‘i saw that.’

    That is one of the MSM most powerful advantages when it comes to creating and preserving the Narrative. When people say they ‘saw that’ they usually mean they read the headline and maybe a paragraph or two.

    Hence, they may not know anything about the guerrilla jihad now underway in Europe or how to defeat it. But they ‘know’ that John Oliver ‘destroyed’ the “nativist islamaphobes in the GOP.” The HuffPo headline told them so. And Daily Beast had a moving photo of SJWs singing “Imagine” while the blood was still wet. So they know that war is not the answer.

  4. Thank you. You’ve made me cry real tears. I’ve only listen to a few of these things. They really have hit a cord with me I’m going to save these and listen to them in the future.

  5. It’s become so common to engage a person in conversation and have them implicitly or even explicitly claim to know what you’re talking about only to notice their confused dead eyes a minute into what you thought was a conversation but in all actuality is you talking and he/she scrambling to cover up the fact they they lied about their knowledge of topic in order to avoid feeling stupid.

    Jim James, front man of the band My Morning Jacket, released a solo album in 2012 called Regions of Light and Sound of God. The first track on the album is called State of the Art (AEIOU) and wrestles with the same issue in this podcast episode regarding technology and our control of it. Good song too.
