The story of America is also one of the steady fall of Jeffersonian democracy and the rise of Hamiltonian plutocracy, with an all-powerful federal government in symbiosis with a ruling oligarchy. This was not a given however, because the Republic created by the Constitution was actually a regime of divided sovereignty. Read more …

Part 1 of 3

An important project for the Alternative Right is the reclaiming of the ethno-nationalist and inegalitarian strands in Western thinking. This is often fairly easy to do: almost everything written before the 1960s was in some way or another politically-incorrect by the standards of today. I have previously attempted to do this regarding aristocratic, racial, and nationalist thought in Alexis de Tocqueville’s classic study, Democracy in America.[1] Read more …

2,924 words

TVTranslated by G. A. Malvicini

Schopenhauer’s Critique of Democracy
