What is this kamikaze compulsion that has driven right-wingers to acts of murder-suicide ever since modern politics first evolved out of the feudal muck? Why do they fling themselves and their nations into wars of extermination that ultimately lead to their own destruction? Why do they eviscerate the economic might of societies they control by waging pogroms and holocausts on minorities who don't present any real threat to them? Why do they undermine the sociopolitical foundations of their religion by making it an instrument of terror and chaos to believers and non-believers alike? What is this psychotic imperative that tells them once they have achieved wealth and power, the only thing remaining is to use that wealth and power to destroy civilization rather than pass on a better world to their children? Where does the evil come from?
In 1945, in a bunker beneath Berlin, as the Allied bombs fell and the Red Army approached, Magda Goebbels - wife of the notorious Nazi propagandist - gathered her six children and methodically murdered them one-by-one, forcing cyanide capsules into their mouths. In all the horrors the Nazis had inflicted on others, this final evil was perhaps the most emblematic of them and of the right-wing mentality in general: They were not merely animals preying on others, but minds of such total darkness and destruction that they would rather execute their own families and then commit suicide than live deprived of victims.
Josef Goebbels could have easily spirited his children away to some neutral country well before this, or surrendered to the Western Allies to avoid the Soviet vengeance, but to him and his wife, the lives of their children would be worthless if they failed to inherit both the will to destroy and the power to carry it out. Thus we see that right-wingers don't really consider their children to be people or carriers of cultural tradition, but rather simply as hosts for the continuation of immortal violence - the active, living denial of life that accompanies it like a photographic negative.
At the bottom of it, they hate all of humanity more than they love even the people closest to them, and reveal themselves for what they are: Miscreants with deformed souls who desperately want to die, but can't bring themselves to do it while others survive to witness their disgrace. I sometimes wonder if the entirety of Nazi Germany didn't boil down ultimately to the murder-suicidal revenge of some bitter asshole who got rejected from an art school - a run-of-the-mill spree-killing inflated to continental scale.
Of course, not all right-wingers go that far - in fact, very few are competent or ballsy enough in their hatred to ever go so far as to face a choice between abandoning hate or dying through their own actions. Most of them sit in the sullen gloom of their embittered cowardice, wishing destruction on others they don't dare to inflict because they are plankton in an ocean of fear. Instead, they passively hope and pray for humanity to come to a sticky end - a complete inversion of the ordinary human's wishes to see a better future for their children, their nations, and their world. When some monster appears in their midst promising endless cataclysm, they become enlivened - their faces blush with glee hearing some enthroned demon promise war, purification, and subjugation.
Whether it's Nazis, al Qaeda suicide bombers, or conservative spree-killers who undertake mass-murder in full knowledge they'll probably be among the dead, the core shadow-people who actually commit the crimes are just the tiniest crown on a huge pyramid of psychotic cowards who support them politically and materially. They view these person-shaped holes in space as something admirable - something to aspire to, ennoble, and place in positions of authority. The minority of their selves that remains human and interested in making life better, they consider impure and sinful - something to be despised and suppressed: The "weakness" of being alive. Thus they seek people who are more purely devoid of such "flaws" to lead them to their apotheosis - the sexualized act of violence in which all their passions are unleashed in kamikaze attack against all life.
It's the Rapture of the psychopath - to break down all existence, disrupt all order, down, down, all the way down until nothing remains but primordial Chaos: A heat-death entropic universe where life and change are finally impossible, and all information has been reduced beneath the threshold of noise. Right-wing politics at its deepest roots is not merely indifferent to life, and not even merely hostile to life - it is Anti-Life: The pure, total inversion of life into a horrific mockery of itself that annihilates existence. They don't fetishize the past because they actually want to live in it - they want to turn back the clock because backwards time is the only way the universe could reflect their backwards morality. Even breaking down civilization isn't enough for them, because future generations could always just come back from any Dark Age stronger and smarter than before.
No - they want nothing less than planet Earth to be as sterile and silent as the Moon: The only sure guarantee that their enemy Life could not simply move around the obstacles they present, as it has a tendency to do. They wish to cleanse the cosmos of the blasphemy of consciousness - that merciless inner eye that looks at them and sees what worthless pigs they are, desecrating their sacred hatred with the knowledge of what it really is: Nothing. A vacuum. They're meat puppets with nothing inside who want there to be nothing outside either.
