Nota del editor:

Este es el texto de una charla que di el 15 de agosto de 1996, a una clase de educación adulta que yo llevaba adelante en Atlanta hace tiempo cuando estaba estudiando. Recuerdo que la lección original era más extensa, incluyendo discusiones sobre Rousseau, Kant, Schiller, y Hegel. Si aparece una cinta, la doblaré y pondré a disposición.  Read more …

Why We Meet as We Do:
Thoughts on Liberal Education

Hendrik_ter_Brugghen_-_Heraclitus

Hendrick ter Brugghen, Heraclitus, 1628

2,733 words

Spanish translation here

Editor’s Note:

This is the text of a talk that I gave on August 15, 1996 to an adult education class that I used to run in Atlanta, way back when I was in graduate school. I recall that the actual lecture was much longer and involved discussions of Rousseau, Kant, Schiller, and Hegel. If a tape comes to light, I will dub it and make it available.

The Anti-Democratic Thought of Erik, Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn & Barone Giulio Cesare Evola

Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

7,182 words

Two books published in the early 1950s by two European aristocrats merit careful study by every contemporary European conservative since they express the authentic reactions of authentic noblemen to the revolutionary changes that Europe has for long suffered under the yoke of democracy and totalitarianism. These are Erik, Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn’s Liberty or Equality: The Challenge of Our Time (1952) and Barone Giulio Cesare Evola’s Gli Uomini e le rovine (Men Among the Ruins) (1953).  Read more …

English original here

La démocratie est-elle un bon système du point de vue des Blancs racialement conscients ?

En ce qui me concerne, je définirai la démocratie comme l’idée que le pouvoir de prendre des décisions politiques doit résider dans les « nombreux »Read more …
