Mircea Eliade et la Redécouverte du Sacré (YouTube, Romanian subtitles)

Mircea Eliade was a traditionalist Romanian novelist and philosopher. Following the disaster of the Second World War, he moved to Paris and Chicago, becoming a respected and influential historian of religions.

The Prayers of Marcus Aurelius

Marcus Aurelius
Meditations
Trans. Robin Hard
Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2011

The following are quotes, sometimes edited for succinctness, from Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations. These statements are incantatory, meant to truly internalize and affirm simple yet profound truths for daily life. For daily life has no need for the distraction and artifice of full argumentation Read more …

The American Empire: Triumph & Expansion of the Federal State 

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 …

2,544 wordsAlexis de Tocqueville

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 …

Warcraft: The Beginning

897 words

llane.0I do feel there has been a kind of concentration of pop culture in recent years: everything blurs together now. I don’t know if video game makers were original in the past but, I believe, the fact that a given game was an artisanal to semi-pro effort, more or less isolated, meant that titles often had a rather distinctive character (e.g. Civilization II, Starcraft). Now it’s all a bit of a mush.

Case in point: the new film Warcraft: The Beginning, the first based on the venerable RTS/MMORPG series by Blizzard. Read more …
