The Triumph of William McKinley: Why the Election of 1896 Still Matters

Safety, Prosperity, & Peace:
Trump’s Path to the White House

596 words

At the 2008 American Renaissance conference, Michael Walker made a very simple point about democratic politics that has stuck with me. Most people are not interested in ideology and moral principles. Instead, he said, quoting British socialist politician Tony Benn, they are interested in “security, peace, and prosperity.”  Read more …

The Left is Afraid

1,598 words

HRCRecently I returned from the most liberal place on earth. For security reasons, I cannot divulge its name or location. Just imagine a place where SJWs and aging hippies go to get in touch (no, really in touch) with their feelings, get rolfed, get high, get in a hot tub, and hope to get lucky. What was I doing there?

The “Love of the Distant”

1,065 words

fri_wandTranslated by G. A. Malvicini

In the domain of inner reactions and characterology, two basic forms may be distinguished.

In the former case, one is attracted to that which is close to one, in the second, to what is distant. The former is related to “democracy” in the broadest, and especially the existential sense; the second is related to a higher human type, found mostly in the world of Tradition.  Read more …

The Great Reserve Army of Populism

1,212 words

SilentMajorityIn great battles – one thinks here of classic Napoleonic set pieces like Austerlitz, Borodino, or Waterloo – the key to victory are the reserves. You send in this division or that one, and the enemy counters. Then, when the enemy is matching you but overcommitted, you then strike decisively with your reserves and roll him up like a rug.  Read more …
