Henry Williamson, George Orwell, & the Pigs

Henry Williamson

Henry Williamson

Today is the birthday of Henry Williamson (Dec. 1, 1895 – Aug. 13, 1977)—ruralist author, war historian, journalist, farmer, and visionary of British fascism.

Two rather incongruous points of Williamson’s life stand out. One is that he achieved fame with what is usually regarded as a children’s book, Tarka the Otter (originally published 1927, with a movie version in 1979).

The other is that he was a friend of Lawrence of Arabia; and that it was on his way back from posting a letter to Williamson that T. E. Lawrence was mysteriously killed in a motorcycle accident. Read more …

What is the relevance of what I call the Old Right — German National Socialism, Italian Fascism, and related interwar national-populist movements — to White Nationalism today? The question would not even arise, of course, if there were no connection at all. Many White Nationalist ideas are either direct descendants of Old Right ideologies, or they are their cousins, meaning that they share common ancestors, that they are branches of the same ideological tree.  Read more …

La Relevancia de la Vieja Derecha

Giacomo Balla, Balbo and the Italian Transatlantic Flyers (Celestial Metallic Airplane) (Balbo e i trasvolatori italiani [Celeste metallico aeroplano]), 1931

Giacomo Balla, Balbo y los Transatlánticos voladores Italianos (Aviones Celestiales Metálicos), 1931

English original here

¿Cuál es la relevancia de lo que llamo Vieja Derecha –Nacional Socialismo Alemán, Fascismo Italiano, y los movimientos nacional-populistas del período entreguerras- para el Nacionalismo Blanco hoy en día? La pregunta no se plantearía, por supuesto, si no hubiera conexión alguna. Muchas ideas Nacionalistas Blancas son descendientes directos o primos de las ideologías de la Vieja Derecha, esto quiere decir que comparten los mismos ancestros, y que son ramas del mismo árbol ideológico.  Read more …

Remembering Roy Campbell:
October 2, 1901–April 22, 1957

1,542 words

Roy Campbell was a South African poet and essayist. T. S. Eliot, Dylan Thomas, and Edith Sitwell praised Campbell as one of the best poets of the inter-war period. Unfortunately, his conservatism, Nietzscheanism, and Catholicism, as well as his open contempt for the Bloomsbury set and his participation in the Spanish Civil War on the Fascist side have led his works to be consigned to the memory hole.

Biological Youth & Political Youth

1,299 words

Translated by G. A. Malvicini

YouthA frequently discussed issue among Right-wing circles is the new generation and its relations with the previous one; “revolutionary” youth in relation to the men and ideas of the Fascist period. Some, in this regard, believe that the same phenomenon is met with here that can be observed more generally: the new generation no longer understands the generation that preceded it, the accelerated pace of events having interposed between the one and the other a mental distance much larger than that which in other times normally would have separated them.  Read more …

Fascism:
The Great Reconciler

2,124 words

Trump_Trumpolini_dux_zpswvdbifo6Because the definition of fascism is so fleeting and the word itself so abused, academics who are at least a little bit serious about understanding fascism have attempted to make a fascist checklist. The most memorable points are also the most superficial. Fascists share the Myth of a Golden Age, the promise of palingenisis, militaristic symbolism and rhetoric, etc.. However, beneath the surface there is a paradox in fascism that has escaped the bourgeois and Marxist academics: Fascism is the greatest force for reconciliation between the various strands of any society.  Read more …

Remembering William Butler Yeats:
June 13, 1865–January 28, 1939

William Butler Yeats, 1865-1939

William Butler Yeats, 1865-1939

164 words

William Butler Yeats, the Irish poet, playwright, and politician, was born on this day in 1865. One of the greatest literary figures of the 20th century, Yeats’ life and work straddle the great divide between Romanticism and Modernism. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923.

In life and in art, Yeats rejected modern rationalism, materialism, and egalitarianism. He saw them as coarsening and brutalizing.

The Ancient Greeks:
Our Fashy Forefathers

WarriorStele1,707 words

Nigel Rodgers
The Complete Illustrated Encyclopedia of Ancient Greece
Lorenz Books, 2014

“Western civilization” is certainly not fashionable in mainstream academia these days. Nonetheless, the ancient Greek and Roman heritage remains quietly revered in the more thoughtful and earnest circles. Quite simply, virtually all of our social and political organization, to the extent these are thought out, ultimately go back to Greek forms, Read more …
