Natural Rights vs. Human Rights:
A Critique of Alain de Benoist

bhr6,534 words

Introduction

This essay examines Alain de Benoist’s book Beyond Human Rights, translated into English in 2011 by Arktos, originally published in French in 2004. This book is a powerful condemnation of the Western idea of natural rights, which it claims to be intrinsically associated with the idea that all humans across the world have human rights. It objects to the imposition of human rights obligations on an otherwise multicultural humanity. Read more …

A Supreme Act of Collective Will

Graphic by Harold Arthur McNeill

Graphic by Harold Arthur McNeill

1,772 words

A recent report on the BBC carries the horrifying news that the German birth rate has now fallen below that of Japan, which at least still has a policy of not accepting massive amounts of refugees and other immigrants.

Apparently an average of 8.2 children per 1,000 people were born annually in Germany over the last five years, presumably with a large part of that being generated by non-White immigrants already there. The same report mentions the low birth rates of other European countries:  Read more …

Karl Jaspers, 1883–1969

3,106 words

English original here

Du XIXe siècle jusqu’aux années 1960 et 1970, les livres de l’Histoire Mondiale reconnaissaient les divers accomplissements de toutes les civilisations dans le monde, mais la plupart des auteurs et des enseignants prenaient comme allant de soi le fait que les Européens méritaient plus d’attention en particulier au vu de leur influence incontestable Read more …

Karl Jaspers, the Axial Age, & a Common History for Humanity

Karl Jaspers, 1883–1969

Karl Jaspers, 1883–1969

2,847 words

French translation here

From the nineteenth century through the 1960s and ’70s, World History books did recognize the varying accomplishments of all civilizations in the world, but most authors and teachers took for granted the fact that Europeans deserved more attention particularly in view of their irrefutable influence on the rest of the world after their discovery of the Americas, development of modern science and global spread of modern technology.

Contre l’Homme Faustien

3,997 words

English original here

fri_wand« L’histoire même de l’humanité tout entière est tragique. Mais le sacrilège du Faustien et son désastre surpassent tous les autres, allant au-delà de tout ce qu’Eschyle ou Shakespeare ont jamais imaginé. La créature se dresse contre son créateur. De la même façon que le microcosme Homme se révolta un jour contre la Nature, ainsi fait aujourd’hui le microcosme Machine se révoltant contre l’Homme Nordique. Le maître du Monde est en train de devenir l’esclave de la Machine qui le force – et nous force tous, que nous en soyons conscients ou pas – à en passer par où elle veut. Abattu, le triomphateur est traîné à mort par le char. » (Oswald Spengler, L’Homme et la TechniqueRead more …

Contra Faustian Man

3,688 words

French translation here

fri_wand“The history of mankind as a whole is tragic. But the sacrilege and the catastrophe of the Faustian are greater than all others, greater than anything Æschylus or Shakespeare ever imagined. The creature is rising up against its creator. As once the microcosm Man against Nature, so now the microcosm Machine is revolting against Nordic Man. The lord of the World is becoming the slave of the Machine, which is forcing him — forcing us all, whether we are aware of it or not — to follow its course. The victor, crashed, is dragged to death by the team.” — Oswald Spengler, Man and Technics  Read more …

Devenir ce que nous sommes :
l’eurocentrisme de gauche et le Destin de l’Occident

L’essai suivant est la section finale de la recension par Collin Cleary du livre de Ricardo Duchesne, The Uniqueness of Western Civilization [La singularité de la civilisation occidentale], révisée pour une publication séparée.

Becoming Who We Are:
Leftist Eurocentrism & the Destiny of the West

Delville0204

Jean Delville’s classic allegory of Masonic universalism

2,642 words

French translation here

Editor’s Note:

The following essay is the final section of Collin Cleary’s review of Ricardo Duchesne’s The Uniqueness of Western Civilization, revised to stand alone. It contains a number of extremely important observations which deserve to be spotlighted, rather than tucked away at the end of an epic-length book review.

Even within the most modern of Western men – yes, even within our politically correct academics – we still see some glimmer of the old, Indo-European thumotic nature. Read more …
