The Tyranny of Values, 1967

6,569 words

Trans. Simona Draghici

Jeanne Argent, Alice Through the Looking Glass

Jeanne Argent, Alice Through the Looking Glass

Editor’s Note:

The following text, which was written in 1967, is one of two essays Carl Schmitt published under the title “The Tyranny of Values.” Both were reprinted in Carl Schmitt, Die Tyrannei der Werte (Hamburg: Lutherisches Verlagshaus, 1979). The translation is from Carl Schmitt, The Tyranny of Values, ed. and trans. Simona Draghici (Washington, D.C.: Plutarch Press, 1996), which is out of print and very hard to find. If anyone knows the translator, please put me in contact.

Nicholas Wade
A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race and Human History
New York: Penguin Press, 2014

Anti-Darwin, — As regards the celebrated ‘struggle for life’, it seems to me for the present to have been rather asserted than proved. If does occur, but as the exception; the general aspect of life is not hunger and distress, but rather wealth, luxury, even absurd prodigality — Read more …

Seriedad Moral

NewRightOldRight1crop1,084 words

English original here

He estado involucrado con la escena del nacionalismo blanco desde el año 2000. Mi experiencia ha sido grandiosamente positiva, pero no del todo. La cosa más dura de tomar no fueron los locos y rufianes, sino la penetrante falta de seriedad moral, incluso entre aquellos nacionalistas blancos mejor informados y con principios. Yo conozco gente que sinceramente cree que nuestra raza está siendo sujeta a una política intencional de genocidio ingeniada por la comunidad judía organizada. Read more …

My Code, Continued

Aristotle-at-university-of-thessaloniki-greece2,926 words

In an earlier essay, I shared ten aphorisms from “my code.” In case you missed that essay, I will just say that a few years ago I decided to establish a code to live by. Like most of the things I do, this turned into a major project and I wound up gathering nuggets of “practical knowledge” from all manner of sources: Aristotle, the Stoics and Epicureans, the Eddas and Sagas, medieval Chivalry, Japanese Bushido, Tyler Durden, G. I. Gurdjieff, and even Indian Shaivism. Read more …
