"In 1968 our parents' generation burned everything down. Because fire is cool. Kids these days are imitating their parents, as kids do. But they're flicking their lighters on a pile of ashes. Sometimes they will get a cinder or two to glow for a moment. Whatever pleasure this produces, it's now objectively less fun than actually constructing something new." — Mencius Moldbug

Hello Fare,

A very nice quotation, but where did Moldbug say it? I can't find anything about it on Google. Is it from a private conversation?

From,
Yakimi

Re: Source

Yes, he said something like that during a private conversation that I was honored to partake in; then I asked him to give me a written version.

Re: Source

Would he mind if I put it on the Wikiquote page?

Re: Source

He would be delighted. Enjoying being published is the entire reason he produced a written version when I asked him!
