Notas sobre el Nihilismo

English original here

The Gnostic Nihilist

Frecuentemente se dice que el nihilismo es una de las características de la era moderna pero, ¿qué es el nihilismo? El nihilismo significa algo así como la “muerte” de Dios, la negación del valor y del significado objetivo, la borradura de las distinciones morales y jerárquicas, la disolución de un mundo común a las perspectivas individuales, y la disolución de una cultura común a las “preferencias dadas” subjetivas.  Read more …

The Gnostic NihilistIt is often said that nihilism is one of the leading characteristics of the modern age, but what is nihilism? Nihilism means something like the “death” of God, the denial of objective meaning and value, the erasure of moral distinctions and hierarchies, the dissolution of a common world into individual perspectives, and the dissolution of a common culture into subjective “given preferences.”  Read more …

La Segunda Venida Pagana de Yeats

1,808 words

English original here

Luc Olivier Merson, Rest on the Flight into Egypt, 1879

Luc Olivier Merson, Descanso en el viaje a Egipto, 1879

William Butler Yeats escribió su famoso poema, “La Segunda Venida”, en 1919, al mismo tiempo que ocurría la Gran Guerra y la Revolución Bolchevique, cuando las cosas realmente estaban “derrumbándose”,  principalmente la civilización Europea. El título refiere, por supuesto, a la segunda llegada, segundo advenimiento, o segunda venida de Cristo. Pero a medida que la leo, el poema rechaza la idea de tal acontecimiento de forma literal. En su lugar, afirma dos sentidos no-cristianos de la segunda venida. Primero, hay un sentido metafórico del fin del presente mundo y la revelación de algo radicalmente nuevo. Segundo, hay un sentido de una segunda venida pero no de Cristo, sino del paganismo desplazado por el cristianismo. Read more …

Yeats’ Pagan Second Coming

1,723 words

Luc Olivier Merson, Rest on the Flight into Egypt, 1879

Luc Olivier Merson, Rest on the Flight into Egypt, 1879

Spanish translation here

William Butler Yeats penned his most famous poem, “The Second Coming,” in 1919, in the days of the Great War and the Bolshevik Revolution, when things truly were “falling apart,” European civilization chief among them. The title refers, of course, to the Second Coming of Christ. But as I read it, the poem rejects the idea that the literal Second Coming of Christ is at hand. Instead, it affirms two non-Christian senses of Second Coming. First, there is the metaphorical sense of the end of the present world and the revelation of something radically new. Second, there is the sense of the Second Coming not of Christ, but of the paganism displaced by Christianity. Read more …

Directed by James Landis
Starring Arch Hall, Jr., Helen Hovey, Richard Alden, Marilyn Manning, Don Russell

“The whole film is filled with a feeling of heat and agony, a constantly blazing sun shining down into a barren waste land of dead cars and dead bodies. Flashes of hope are rare and always beaten down with such hatred and force that the viewer almost hopes it won’t come back . . .” — (IMDb review)

Communism, Nihilism, Neoism, & Decadence

11,050 words

Editor’s Note:

b-stewart-home-jpgThe following text is a transcript by V.S. of one of Jonathan Bowden’s most entertaining lectures, which was delivered to the 25th New Right meeting in London on February 13, 2010. Although Stewart Home is the principal subject, Bowden romps through a wide field of politically correct theories, ultra-Left sects, and decadent forms of modern art.

Leo Strauss, the Conservative Revolution, & National Socialism, Part 3

3,373 words

Part 3 of 4

Editor’s Note: 

Leo Strauss

Leo Strauss

In the previous installment of this series, I examined Leo Strauss’s argument that the roots of what he called “German nihilism” — including National Socialism — were not nihilistic. Instead, it is rooted in a moral critique of the modern world. In this installment, I examine his argument that these non-nihilistic motives gave rise to nihilism because of certain contingent historical circumstances.  Read more …
