>authors who were right about everything
Tolstoyan pacifism was actually a reasonably influential movement with a sort of cult following of intellectuals until the Bolsheviks (like the NKVD bro in the above pic) literally rounded them all up and shot them. Pacifism in a nutshell.
My spiritual leader: Chris Hedges.
"If you pay homage to the fiction of the democratic state and the supposed “virtues” of the nation, including its right to wage endless imperial war, you get huge fees, tenure, a television perch, book, film or recording contracts, grants and prizes, investors for your theater project or praise as an pundit, artist or public intellectual. The pseudo-politicians, pseudo-intellectuals and pseudo-artists know what to say and what not to say. They offer the veneer of criticism [...] without naming the cause of our malaise. And they are used by the elites as attack dogs to discredit and destroy genuine dissent. This is not, as James Madison warned, the prologue to a farce or a tragedy; we are living both farce and tragedy."
seems like Hitler is getting more and more popular every year
