The European New Right & its Animus against Western Civ

MichaelandDragon3,389 words

Remembering René Guénon:
November 15, 1886 to January 7, 1951

Rene-guenon-1925305 words

René Guénon was born on November 15, 1886.

“So check it out, and next time you go cruising down the street, take a look around. We are Franklin Franklin.” — Jeff Frankas

After reading Jeff Frankas’ excellent review of Small Apartments[1] I did what I usually do in such circumstances–head over to Amazon to see if there are any used copies in the $0.25 range (my current book budget). Once there, I discovered that it has already been made into a movie, a veritable “underground hit” with big stars like . . . Billy Crystal.  Read more …

TYR: Myth, Culture, Tradition, vol. 4
Ed. Joshua Buckley and Michael Moynihan
North Augusta, SC.: Ultra Press, 2014

Finally receiving the new issue of TYR, one feels torn between wishing that each volume could appear more frequently, or at least more regularly, and on the other hand, appreciation for the time and attention devoted to bringing out such unparalleled collections of articles, interviews and reviews of books and music devoted to the “Myth – Culture – Tradition” of the North by Messrs. Buckley and Moynihan.[1]  Read more …
