The Worth of Fame

Benjamin West, The Bard, 1778

Benjamin West, The Bard, 1778

2,309 words

In retrospect, Aryans appear to have harbored a naïve faith in the natural relationship between reputation, fame, and merit. True, our conceptions served us well enough in our own world. But that was prior to the Age of Defamation. Now we see that fame, reputation, and moral worth can be completely unrelated. It is child’s play for dominant, cunning, and unscrupulous elites to destroy reputations, fabricate evidence and opinions, and reverse the judgments of history—and have their constructs stick, and be universally accepted.

Carl Schmitt on the Tyranny of Values

2,108 words

Gerrit van Honthorst, Croesus and Solon, 1624

Gerrit van Honthorst, Croesus and Solon, 1624

Carl Schmitt’s two essays on “The Tyranny of Values” (1959 and 1967) are typical of his work. They contain simple and illuminating ideas which are nevertheless quite difficult to piece together because Schmitt presents them only through complex conversations with other thinkers and schools of thought. In “The Tyranny of Values” essays, Schmitt’s target is “moralism,” which boils down to doing evil while one thinks one is doing good. Read more …

Isolationism & Pan-Interventionism

Shining_City_Upon_a_Hill_by_hawk862280 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

The American pretense of forming a new and uncorrupted world was tolerable for others as long as it remained associated with isolationist policies. A global line dividing the world in a binary manner in terms of good and evil is a line based on moral values. When it is not strictly limited to defense and self-isolation, it becomes a permanent political provocation to the other side of the planet.

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.

A Broken Circle

Nicolas Poussin, A Dance to the Music of Time (Dance of Human Life),  1639

Nicolas Poussin, A Dance to the Music of Time (Dance of Human Life), 1639

921 words

The circle can symbolize perfection and eternity. It can also symbolize identity, since every circle has an inside and outside, an “us” and a “them.” Of course every line divides, but the circle turns back upon itself and “eternalizes” itself, for a circle has no beginning and end. But every vital identity seeks to eternalize itself as well.

Goethe’s Prometheus

1,384 words

Gustave Moreau, Prometheus

Gustave Moreau, Prometheus

Prometheus is, probably, one of the most enduring characters in universal mythology and, in addition, one of the most frequent subjects of artistic, literary, or philosophical interpretation. Aeschylus’ version, Prometheus Bound, has generated different symbolic interpretations across the centuries. Starting with the Renaissance, Prometheus has been seen as a symbol of consciousness struggling against arbitrary power.[1]

This was captured in essence by Goethe, circa 1771, who presented the image of the Promethean Man who, decades later, Friedrich Nietzsche would write about in his Birth of Tragedy. Read more …
