Why are imageboards filled with so many religious fanatics and conservatives these days? (27)

Kind of a funny development.

It's just autists roleplaying.

You can thank RapeApe for that.

no, we have always been here
is that the others simply abandoned those places

I don't remember ever encountering christfags and socially conservatives in 2003-2009 though I was mostly on /a/ and /jp/. Now you find those even on those two boards by the dozen.

Because /pol/ single-handedly gentrified these places and the tipping point of all that bullshit was trying to colonize reddit and then getting out-colonized and filled with schizo boomers.

Because its technically counterculture and even underground. Back when these things were popular imageboards were chock full of smoke weed anti-Bush "fedora" atheists. It also reflects how things in general are more politicized.

1)Because they're not oldfags and western young people IRL are returning to their religions these years.
2)New Atheism movement failed, spawning the antifedora memes last bunch of years, becoming undesirable to identify as one.
3)An interest on traditionalist/perennialist authors like Evola and Guenon arose, spawning memes like "Retvrn to tradition". Vaporwave promoted these.
4)An increase on feminist and LGTB groups this decade caused a natural masive reaction against them.
5)God may be real and chose to make His moves both irl and on the net, sending "messengers" to nests of vice like 4channel, etc. Who knows, someone like moot or Hiroyuki could convert and be a new Paul.

People playing around, even if themselves don't notice that (like the poster above).

11 Name: 401 - Unauthorized Name : 2021-08-13 09:13 ID:dr2fX5jf

I may be or not playing around (I'm not), but my reasons above remain true even if I didn't mean to (I did).

12 Name: 410 - Name Gone : 2021-08-13 09:19 ID:Heaven

Second part of the first point is false (or absolutely minimal if you prefer), third point is nothing more than a ''meme'' and the fifth point is delusional.

>Because its technically counterculture and even underground.

Lol no, people who think that being a religious conservative is counter culture are delusional; maybe in certain cities being outspoken about that would be odd but those don't constitute the collective mindset of other cities and most suburban or rural communities which dominate countries like the US. The fact that Americans in particular think being conservative is somehow "counter culture" is mindboggling.

Regular conservatism/light reactionaryism no but the types of ideas popular with /pol/sters are definitely underground especially now that the Qtrump/pol/ stuff is unpopular with mainstream republicans now. Ditto for religious nuts who believe things that most popular churches (particularly the Catholics, which is ironic in this case) distance themselves from actively.

The only reason Americans think it is counter-culture despite being one of the furthest right countries (non-muslim) in the west, is because their media loves progressive ideas and popular social media is designed to show you things you disagree with so you use it longer to fight. The UK is the same way.

Do you think now with the internet being a cultural force, decades will now be extremely different or like they were in the past or it will be more gradual?

17 Name: 406 - Name Not Acceptable : 2021-08-17 18:26 ID:NNU89xig

It was much worse a decade earlier. Currently its a big "Love you all lets hug group".

18 Name: 415 - Unsupported Name Type : 2022-10-11 16:58 ID:1MfZYIk5

it's because they got booted from all of the Legitimate™️ Social Media®️ platforms

19 Name: 422 - Unprocessable Name : 2022-10-15 21:47 ID:LV/Qm9/z

I think that as the Internet grew and became inseparable from IRL, anonymous boards have taken on a highly specific role in the gentrified Cyberspace.

the pendulum has left the conservative right and moved to the "progressive: (conservative) left

Social media censorship makes people with these views want to go to messageboards which support free speech

The grasping for last remaining straws of meaning as they're escaping our reality is getting desperate. Will Evolian cosmology, being batshit insane notwithstanding, be vindicated at last?

It's not just the evangelical boomerfaggots violently thrust on the chans by qanon facebook LARPs, you know. Neo-paganism, neo-barbarism, neo-spartanism, neo-antiquity are all the rage now on tiktok, though the kids may not even realize it. Will we live to see neo-rome arising from the ashes of that?

At the end of the classical age we realized that our commitments and norms are not written into nature or the mind of God but just our way of doing things, and we can change them if we want to. This led to the absolute freedom and terror of the French revolution and Enlightenment as human-kind attempted to redesign itself from the ground up, trying to use "reason" to structure society. But then it was found that reason was just as ungrouded and arbitrary as anything else and only contained the basic idea of self-legislation without any direction for that self-legislation to take. Thus we got stuck in our current era, half of the people don't believe in anything but the rule of self-legislation, the rule of not accepting any rule beyond themselves, and half the people believe in unrelenting dogmatism and inner conviction in an attempt to stave off the reality of freedom, that no one can hold us to our commitments but us. Thus, the two political persuasions currently in existence.

i think it is because, over the last 30 years or so, we have always despised "normal people". currently, normal people are universally preaching for things like gender non-binaryism, transgender encouragement, anti-racism (minority fetishism?), child drag events, open borders, etc. for some reason.

Lots of answers in this thread. Unfortunately, they're all wrong.

I hope I get to neo-burn neo-witches at the neo-stake

26 Name: 410 - Name Gone : 2022-11-29 02:58 ID:m47LbKSX

I'm a Marxist anyway, so I fall outside the reactionary pole.

Interesting post.

>Thus we got stuck in our current era, half of the people don't believe in anything but the rule of self-legislation, the rule of not accepting any rule beyond themselves, and half the people believe in unrelenting dogmatism and inner conviction in an attempt to stave off the reality of freedom, that no one can hold us to our commitments but us.
>the reality of freedom, that no one can hold us to our commitments but us.

I think this is a great line.
