Can we have a Mencius Moldbug appreciation thread?
I'm surprised he's so seldom mentioned on /lit/. His prose style is idiosyncratic, modern (it chimes with the sensibilities of the Internet Age more than, say, Christopher Hitchen's did), and presented exclusively in blog format. He's at the cuting edge, a pioneer; the days of the essayist à la Johnson or Orwell are over and the big tombs of yesteryear will rot in the confines of academia as the frontiers of literature and political thought push forward into the digital era.
>In the 21st century, any writer whose work appears anywhere but his own blog is a shill. Or at least, he should be assumed to be compromised unless proven otherwise. The Internet has all the tools you need to write and be read without being beholden to anyone. If anyone rejects this independence, you have to wonder why.
Is he right /lit/?
