Oswald Spengler & the Faustian Soul of the West, Part 1

3,526 words

Faust im Studierzimmer Georg Friedrich Kersting

Georg Friedrich Kersting, “Faust in his Study”

Part 1 of 2

Was Roman Citizenship Based on Laws for “All of Humanity”?

corpus-iuris-civilis

Corpus Juris Civilis

2,496 words

The claim that the Roman empire was a legally sanctioned multiracial state is another common trope used by cultural Marxists to create an image of the West as a civilization long working itself toward the creation of a universal race-mixed humanity. This is a lie to which patriots of Western Civ must not yield.

The majority of scholars agree that Rome’s greatest contribution to Western Civilization was the development of a formal-rational type of legal order characterized by the logical consistency of its laws, the precise classification of its different types of law, Read more …
