As if we needed any further proof that the so-called 'Alt-Right' is really a Left-Wing Reactionary movement; Red Pill cultist Vox Day has been spending the better part of the last week bashing Conservatives. Citing pseudoscience from The Unz Review---a notoriously anti-Semitic tabloid---Vox claims that "Conservatism is unviable because it denies inequality. All unviable political identities have set themselves up against science, history, and observable reality. Remember, the Red Pill is reality."
Well, no it isn't. And Conservatives don't deny inequality. We understand that there are differences among the human race. But we believe as well in the Law of Compensation, of which Vox and other Red Pills are wholly ignorant.
One of America's first native philosophers, Ralph Waldo Emerson, explained the Law of Compensation as a moral justification for equality. The concept didn't originate with him; and most of us probably know and live by this principle under various other names. The Law of Compensation simply says that human beings compensate for weaknesses and deficiencies by excelling in particular ways. The most common way we experience this is through gender-relations and marriage. The strengths and weaknesses inherent in each gender finds compensation by bonding sexually or romantically. Most of us know this as complementarian---another concept which the Red Pills also deny.
It also happens in society at large and is a well-known psychological fact. People who are limited in their abilities in one area compensate by excellence in another field. This is so well established that Alfred Adler and Maria Montessori built whole schools of psychology around the concept. We also see it in physical debilities. It's well-known, for example, that the blind develop extraordinary senses like hearing. It's also well-known that infertile women often make the best nurses and elementary teachers.
This idea of compensation leads naturally to social cooperation; and by extension, Legal Equality. As our Founding Fathers expressed it: "We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights."
And the Founders themselves based the idea on the principles of Christianity. The Catechism of the Catholic Church expresses it this way: "Created in the Image of the One True God and equally endowed with rational souls, all men have the same nature and the same origin. Redeemed by the Sacrifice of Christ, all are called to participate in the same Divine Beatitude; all therefore enjoy an equal dignity...Human talents, however, are not distributed equally. These differences, though, belong to God's Plan; which wills that each receives what he needs from others; and that those endowed with particular benefits share them with those who need them." (iii:1934-1937, passim).
If man, therefore, is equal in the eyes of God, Law, and Nature---why do these three ever punish those who compensate in negative ways (i.e. sin, crime, and unnatural behavior)? This is because the only actual 'inequality' between human beings is moral inequality. It's actually the Liberals and the Left who deny inequality; because they hold the extremist position that all behaviors are morally equivalent.
The Red Pills swing to the opposite extreme and create a moral dogma that inequality stems from an inherent biological inferiority in most; while they alone---the 'Alphas'---are superior. This is also an extremist position because they create a subjective definition of superiority and derive false moral absolutes from them. Liberalism denies reality; the Red Pills offer a counterfeit reality.
At any rate, Conservatives shouldn't worry too much about Vox' predictions. His track-record at successful predictions is worse than most commercial fortune-tellers. And Conservatives will be here long after the Red Pill is forgotten.
