Hip to the Moon: Brandon Adamson Drops Out to Conquer the Stars - External Review

I have been aware of Brandon Adamson's Beatnik Fascism poetry book but had not gotten around to ordering a copy myself. Rainer Chlodwig von K has however and reviewed the book. An excerpt of the review and link to where is it hosted is below.

Not counting high school and college reading assignments of several of William Shakespeare’s plays, I could probably count the books of poetry I’ve read with the digits on one of my hands. I made an exception this week, though, and broke with my usual routine of mundane and informational counter-Semitic prose to read Brandon Adamson’s Beatnik Fascism. I’ve owned this book for a while, but don’t usually feel sufficiently tranquil for literary appreciation, so it took me a while to get around to it.

What is “beatnik fascism”? “Just as the beats didn’t conform to the post world war II societal workforce uniformity and ‘square’ culture of the 1950s and 60s, it seems that young racialists and other thought criminals now find themselves […] cast as the unassimilated actors in the politically correct, multicultural, global capitalist theatrics of today,” Adamson writes in his introduction. “We find ourselves keeping our true opinions to ourselves at the office while maintaining secret identities online for sharing our darkest views. We live almost completely isolated in society and detached from popular culture […]”

The “beatnik fascist”, then, is not necessarily a partisan of some interwar iteration of continental nationalism, but one whose dogged capacity for pattern recognition and revulsion at the globalist, pantsuited status quo necessitate the subterranean life of the societal outcast – and beatnik fascists like Brandon Adamson, who recognize the anti-racists for the hateful, unimaginative squares they always were, would have it no other way. Adorning the cover of the book is a stylized pagoda circled after the manner of the party flag of the British Union of Fascists – but referencing, too, the far-out philosophical interests of the historical Beats.
