ANTI-FRAGILITY: RIDING NASSIM TALEB’S TIGER

An essential concept for understanding the Old (or fake) Right and its inability to defeat the Left is “fragility” – normally defined as the quality of being easily broken or damaged. It has been noted that such right wingers are people who either want to ignore momentum and impose a status quo, which means being Conservative, or LARPers, who yearn for some previous unobtainable moment in history. Many of the disagreements on the right basically boil down to “My LARPing doesn’t line up with your LARPing.”

But the essential point about those on the Old Right is their sense of fragility, a feeling that any change or shift will make them lose out in terms of income and social status. This inevitably pushes then to the wrong side of the System. Rather than their defended position, it is this fragility and the fears it generates that comes to define them.
