The Weighing of the Heart from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, Papyrus of Ani, British Museum

Postmodern thought, insofar as it consists in the critique of the universality of reason, the Enlightenment, the notion of progress, and so forth, is potentially useful to conservatives (in fact, many postmodern theorists draw heavily from thinkers of the right like Nietzsche and Heidegger). Dugin seems to be believe that this postmodern stage, in which modernity exhausts and undoes itself, opens up possibilities of a return of traditional and premodern forces. Read more …

Dugin on Ethnicity vs. Race, Part 2

George Heermann, Cronos, 1696

George Heermann, Cronos, 1696

3,436 words

Part 2 of 2

The ethnos continues to exist as the substratum of traditional societies. For example, the pre-Indo-European ethne continue to exist as the third function of Indo-European societies. Dugin explains the emergence of traditional civilizations through the emergence of nomadic pastoralism, that is, the appearance, from out of autochthonous agricultural society, of small, nomadic groups of war-like herdsmen.

Dugin on Ethnicity vs. Race

Aleksandr-Dugin-Cr7,022 words

Since liberalism, as an ideology founded on the rights of the individual, calls for “the liberation from all forms of collective identity in general, [and is therefore] entirely incompatible with the ethnos and ethnocentrism, and is an expression of a systematic theoretical and technological ethnocide,” “ethnocentrism” and the positive affirmation of “ethnic” identity are viewed by Dugin as a potential base for resistance to liberalism. This is why he argues that “ethnocentrism” can be viewed as a positive component of National Socialism, if it is neutralized by purging it of any racial or national connotations.

Dugin on the Subject of Politics

An agent of chaos: Alexander Dugin with the chaos star, symbol of Eurasianism[1]

Dugin’s Social Constructionism

The claim that there is no biological basis for the concept of race, or that it is not useful in explaining contemporary reality, is of course patently false. But Dugin follows postmodern thinkers like Foucault and Althusser in arguing that not only race, but all political subjects are constructs.  Read more …

Dugin Contra Racism

3,424 words

duginosetiaMost White Nationalists are aware at this point that Alexander Dugin is not one of us. Dugin has stated that he views race as a social construct. We can safely assume that he is not simply being disingenuous, since this claim is consistent with his postmodern and relativist theoretical orientation, Read more …

On the Sublime & the Numinous

Caspar_David_Friedrich_0714,193 words

The words “sublime” and “numinous” have shifted in meaning somewhat over recent years. The word “sublime,” I presume, would now generally be interpreted to mean something of particularly great beauty, or an action particularly well executed. It would not be limited to a narrow usage but could be applied to any thing or action of particular excellence, perhaps with a slightly pretentious connotation of elegance.  Read more …

Jonathan Bowden’s Sade

bowdensade1,150 words

Jonathan Bowden
Sade
Charleston, W.V.: Nine-Banded Books, 2013

Sade was first published in 1992 by Egotist Press. It is a long essay (about 30,000 words, by my estimation) published as a short book (120-odd pages of text in 5 x 7.5 inch format). Bowden’s early works are as rare as hen’s teeth, so I eagerly awaited this reprint by Nine-Banded Books, Read more …

“The question is not, ‘Is it true?’ but, ‘Does it work?’ What new thoughts does it make possible to think? What new emotions does it make possible to feel? What new sensations and perceptions does it open in the body?” – Brian Massumi[1] 

A Commentary on Deleuze, Guattari, and the New Right

“Deleuze, Guattari, and the New Right” was written for four reasons, equally ontological and epistemological. Read more …
