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 …

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 …

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 …

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.

Living in Truth: A Yuletide Homily

471px-Champaigne_Philippe_de_-_Saint_Augustin_-_1645-1650

Philippe de Champaigne, “Saint Augustin,” 1645-1650

2,587 words

The key problem of our age is disconnection from truth. This takes several distinct forms. The first, and most obvious, is the prevalence of lies. As everyone knows, modern, western civilization is founded upon lies about human nature, culture, and history. The most significant of these – underlying, in one form of another, most of the rest – is the equality lie; the myth of human equality, which is the chief myth of our age. (“Myth,” as most of my readers know, can have a positive or a negative connotation, as there are salutary myths; here, obviously, I am using the term in its purely negative sense.)  Read more …

O relativismu

145 words

English original here

“Filosofický” relativismus bezpochyby představuje jednu z nejhorších chorob zachvacujících naši společnost. Mezi jeho charakteristické rysy patří jeho neurčitý charakter, pseudovědecká logika a nádech tolerance (představující největší hodnotu našeho postmoderního světa), všechny dohromady mu pak vtiskují rysy, jež jej zvýhodnují oproti konkurenčním filosofickým proudům.
