Remembering Anthony M. Ludovici:
January 8, 1882–April 3, 1971

314 words

Anthony Mario Ludovici was born on this day in 1882.

Ludovici was one of the first and most accomplished translators of Nietzsche into English and a leading exponent of Nietzsche’s thought. Ludovici was also an original philosopher in his own right. In nearly forty books, including eight novels, and hundreds of shorter works, Ludovici set forth his views on metaphysics, religion, ethics, politics, economics, the sexes, health, eugenics, art, modern culture, and current events with a clarity, wit, and fearless honesty that made him famous.

A passionate, principled defender of aristocracy and conservatism and a fierce, uncompromising critic of egalitarianism in all its manifestations, Ludovici was consigned to obscurity after the Second World War.

But in recent years, through the power of his thought and the promotional efforts of John V. Day, Ludovici’s writings have found a whole new audience.

In commemoration of Ludovici’s birth, we are publishing “Anthony Ludovici: Conservative from Another World,” originally published in Instauration.

See also John Day’s “What is Best Will Rule: Anthony Ludovici on Aristocracy and Democracy.”

I also wish to draw your attention to John Day’s extensive online archive of Ludovici’s writings: http://www.anthonymludovici.com/

John Day is also the editor of The Lost Philosopher: The Best of Anthony M. Ludovici, which in honor of Ludovici’s birthday will be available from this website for the remainder of the month of January for $20 in hardcover (regularly priced at $30) or $15 in paperback (regularly priced at $20).

The following excerpts from The Lost Philosopher are available on this website:

Because of the renewed interest in Ludovici’s work, many of his writings have recently been reprinted and are available at Amazon.com.

      Fagots play with human dung and choose a lifestyle that prevents them from producing babies for the White Race. That should be enough to exclude them from the company of any healthy group of White people.

      Is this website a pro-fagot website?

        Elton John seems to have produced a child.

        This was quite interesting actually because the lady who was the surrogate apparently has done this before for other wealthy individuals/couples. She must have some dynamite genes. I’m glad she is passing them along in combination with other very successful people. Seems like a win-win to me. We need more eugenic type behavior, rather than less.

        Anyway, homos aren’t the problem when it comes to lack of White babies. Economic conditions are the issue. A shrinking middle class and economic uncertainty and two parents working. Those are the problems.

        FWIW, straights also engage in anal sex, so homos aren’t the only ones having fun.

    Ludovici is brilliant. I am currently re-reading those chapters from different books by Ludovici that Robert Frenz posted on FAEM many years ago. I didn’t know January 8 was his birthday.

    Happy 128th birthday, Tony!

    PS! Ludovici is not only extremely erudite, he is funny too.
