Remembering Francis Parker Yockey:
September 18, 1917–June 16, 1960

465 words

Francis Parker Yockey was born on this day in 1917 in Chicago. He died in San Francisco on June 16, 1960, an apparent suicide. Yockey is one of America’s greatest anti-liberal thinkers and an abiding influence on the North American New Right. In honor of his birthday, I wish to draw the reader’s attention to the following works on this site.

By Yockey himself:

  • “America’s Two Political Factions,” here
  • “America’s Two Ways of Waging War,” here
  • “Culture” (December 1953), here
  • “The Destiny of America,” here
  • “From the Notebooks,” here
  • “The Imperative of Our Age,” here
  • “Liberalism,” here

  • Ted Sallis, “Pan-European Preservationism,” here
  • Keith Stimley, Interview with H. Keith Thompson on Francis Parker Yockey, here

Yockey’s magnum opus, Imperium: The Philosophy of History and Politics, is back in print with an Introduction by Dr. Kerry Bolton.

Yockey’s The Enemy of Europe is available paired with Revilo Oliver’s commentary, The Enemy of Our Enemy.

Yockey’s manifesto, The Proclamation of London: Of the European Liberation Front is available in a new hardcover edition with an Introduction by Michael O’Meara.

Unfortunately, the only existing biography of Yockey is Kevin Coogan’s Dreamer of the Day: Francis Parker Yockey and the Postwar Fascist International, in which Yockey’s biography is buried under hundreds of pages of extraneous details about the history of the entire post-World War II Right.

Fortunately, Dr. Kerry Bolton is now working on a new biography of Yockey, which promises to be the definitive treatment. We have published a crowd-sourcing appeal for help in tracking down Yockey’s lost writings and related materials. If you can help, please contact me at

    At present the nationalist movements in Europe and America are gripped by what Yockey called “petty statism.” But nothing lasts forever and the historical cycle will inevitably deliver European union. Exactly what form it will take we do not know but the predicted fragmentation of the Soviet Union was limited. The Russian states stayed together and the proximity of Russian gas and oil to German industry will form the basis of the new Imperium. Unfortunately Yockey was so far ahead of his time that the rest of the world has still not caught up with him. The division of the world into parishes is not the answer.

      The ideal and really, the only hope Europe has is Pan Europeanism through Christianity, and the state must than take on a similar structure to medieval Europe. Of course Russia will need to be included in this. Think, articles of confederation with a monarchical structure, all subservient to God through Christ. This is her only hope, it is either complete restoration as such, or 1984.

      For this too come, all petty nationalism and even to an extant white nationalism ( not white realism of course ) must be overcome.

        It’s the sod’n Reformation that has a lot to answer for, that set the rot into motion.
