Really? I was totally unsurprised. Why? Because it exalts legalistic ethics and robotic thinking. Of course it would only attract fringe-dwelling autists and lolbergs.
The character of the people ideas come from and the people who follow them are pretty good metrics to judge things by, even without looking at the fancy website.
Still, I spent hours watching John Mark's videos and reading the website last year and again recently, and I rejected it then and now. It's decidely anti-spiritual, which is a red flag for something claiming to be a solution in an era has a mighty need of genuine spirituality. It aims to be a vast all-encompassing mental paradigm, like a computer program, in a world where technologizing and bureaucratizing of all aspects of life and the resulting mass impersonal systems are already among our biggest problems. And we're supposed to believe that treating the entirety of our actions and knowledge like this is going to make it better?
No, Propertarianism was just one man's autistic pet project to try and order everything so that everybody stops being so darn "irrational" (i.e. human).
I meant to say I thought the movement would gain steam because of the riots, BLM, and increasing political polarisation/balkanization. I thought the movement would grow organically on the net. So yes, I was flabbergasted when I heard the whole thing cratered in a single day.
I still think his ideas are merited, especially the talk about reciprocity. My interpretation of this P stuff is meant to be meme to be propagated so society doesn't repeat the errors of the past and let itself be consumed by parasitism. It's meant for a post-secession era.
I think religion is a net positive considering how degenerate people are without a moral authority telling them what is right and wrong. Now, having said that it looks like religion is on it's way out. Scorpion mentioned the word demographics and it won't come to any surprise to any of you if I mention low birth rates unless we are talking about Muslims or Amish. Technology is rapidly outpacing the relevance of religion. Teenagers are more likely to be literate in Tiktok, Tinder and Twitter than ever having read a page of the bible or set foot in a church. I hate to drop black pills but it looks like the writing is on the wall. Of course, I would like nothing more than a society of God fearing men and chaste women but this is becoming a fantasy unless you want to move to Iran or live off-grid. It's banking on a miracle.
Maybe you're right and P is just an autistic pet project of Curt Doolittle. At least the guy gave a respectable effort and failed. I can't say the same about all the other dissident right wing groups LARPing Sieg Hiel salutes. I don't think any of us P guys actually believed it would be implemented in our lifetimes but the ideas were fresh and white pilling.
