A King Out Of Water

Mencius Moldbug comments on the approaching death of Lawrence Auster, here.

Auster himself is puzzled, and I think his puzzlement illustrates rather well exactly the points Moldbug makes about him: Auster’s specialty is order and clarity, while Moldbug’s piece, as always, is long, discursive, and sesquipedalian.

But I thought it was quite a nice tribute, myself.

I’m really going to miss VFR.

    I stopped reading Moldbug’s post after a few paragraphs. Like Auster, I haven’t a damn clue what he’s trying to say. His thoughts—not to mention his diction—seem so random.

    It’s funny, I don’t get that from Moldbug. It’s riffing, to me, by a strange virtuoso.
