The Widening Gyre:

William Blake, "The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed with the Sun," c.1805

2,451 words

Guillaume Corvus
La convergence des catastrophes
Paris: Diffusion International, 2004

Nearly three hundred years ago, the early scientistic stirrings of liberal modernity introduced the notion that life is like a clock: measurable, mechanical, and amenable to rationalist manipulation. Read more …

Translated by Greg Johnson

Allow me an “archeofuturist” parable based on the eternal symbol of the tree, which I will compare to that the rocket. But before that, let us contemplate the grim face of the coming century.

The Metaphysics of Memory

654 words

Translated by Michael O’Meara

Czech translation of this English version: here

“Memory” is a much abused word. But so too is the word “love,” which doesn’t mean it can’t be used in its fullest sense. It’s the force of “memory,” transmitted within the bosom of the family, that enables a community to endure, despite all that seeks its dissolution. Read more …

The Educational Value of Role-Playing Games

3,217 words

In today’s world, cell phones, pagers, iPods, computers, video games, and the like are as common a part of life as food and sleep. For the most part, these things are a distraction, and in case of video games, an outright form of escapism comparable to drug addiction. Read more …

Translated by Greg Johnson

Czech translation based on this English translation here, Russian translation here

Jean-Paul Sartre once said of Ernst Jünger: “I hate him, not as a German, but as an aristocrat . . .”

Sartre had some grave defects. In his political impulses, he was mistaken with a rare obstinacy. Read more …

Another European Destiny:
Dominique Venner’s Ernst Jünger: Un autre destin européen

4,351 words

Dominique Venner
Ernst Jünger: Un autre destin européen
Paris: Éds. du Rocher, 2009

In Dominique Venner’s historical essay, Ernst Jünger: Un autre destin européen, the subject is presented as une figure ultime, a European archetype provisionally absent from Europe today, but nevertheless one rooted in the depths of the European spirit — and destined, thus, to re-appear should Europeans ever re-awake to re-assert themselves in the world.

A Posthumous Revenge

The death mask of Robert E. Lee

467 words

Translator’s Note:

The following excerpt is taken from the concluding chapter of Venner’s Gettysburg, one of two books he’s written on the War of Southern Secession. Like Maurice Bardèche’s Sparte et les sudistes [Sparta and the Confederates], it reflects the other side of that European anti-liberalism which crusades against everything contemporary America has come to represent.

Alexander

3,349 words

Oliver Stone’s Alexander is, well, great. It isn’t perfect, but neither was Alexander. It is definitely worth seeing. But there is a subtle and sinister thread of anti-White propaganda running through the movie, and I would not recommend it to anyone without warning him first.

There are many reasons why I enjoyed Alexander. Chief among them is Alexander himself. Alexander the Great was surely one of the most gifted men in history. Read more …

Signs

1,585 words

August 3, 2002

I loved M. Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. And I love his new movie Signs. Signs does not have the amazing twist ending of The Sixth Sense, but it has a twist of its own. Ostensibly a suspenseful, scary sci-fi thriller with many wonderful comic scenes, Signs turns into something far more serious and profound. It is a meditation on the nature of manliness and its connection to religious faith.

The Interpreter

1,056 words

The Interpreter is a new thriller starring Sean Penn and Nicole Kidman, directed by Sydney Pollack. It is a well-crafted, well-acted, but ultimately mediocre film. Left to my own devices, I would probably not have seen it at all. But I wanted to spend some time with a friend, and he suggested the film.  Read more …

Secretary

1,119 words

Secretary was directed by Steven Shainberg and stars James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal. I watched this movie for three reasons. First, because it has James Spader in it, who is one of my favorite male actors. (Although Spader is very handsome, for most of the film he has a creepy, waxen, reptilian look about him.) Second, because it was supposed to be funny. Third, because humorless, hysterical feminists hated it for being “misogynistic,” thus I’d hoped there would be something true in it. Maybe it would be another Belle du Jour or Mademoiselle or Lost Highway.

The question whether world peace will ever be possible can only be answered by someone familiar with world history. To be familiar with world history means, however, to know human beings as they have been and always will be. Read more …

The “W” Word

1,205 words

May 11, 2008

French translation here

So there is a dirtier word than “nigger,” and that word is “white.”

How else to explain the political establishment’s consternation over Hillary Clinton’s statement in a USA Today interview that she is more electable than Barack Obama because she has more support from working-class white people?

The 2008 US Presidential Election

1,184 words

November 5, 2008

The election of Barack Obama as president of the United States is a good thing for white nationalism.

Whites will regain control over our nation and our destiny only when we have a change of consciousness. First, we must again think of ourselves as a distinct ethnic group with distinct interests—interests that often conflict with those of other ethnic groups. Read more …

A Tariff in Time . . . Saves Billions:
The Proposed Automotive Industry Bailout

Thomas Hart Benton, "Steel in America Today," 1930

1,231 words

November 20, 2008

Free markets mean competition. Competition means winners and losers. Some losers even lose their shirts and go out of business. When a business fails, this should be regarded as a success for the capitalist system as a whole. That goes for really big businesses as well as small ones. In a capitalist system, nobody is “too big to fail.”

Traditionalism: This is the Enemy!

1,705 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

In the circles of what we might euphemistically call the “revolutionary right,” or more broadly the “anti-liberal right,” one can observe the recurrent rise—like outbreaks of acne—of what one can only call “metaphysical traditionalism.”

Savitri Devi
Gold in the Furnace:
Experiences in Post-War Germany

Edited by R. G. Fowler
Atlanta: The Savitri Devi Archive, 2006

Oswald Spengler wrote that apocalyptic visions heralded the dawn of a new civilization. When, knowing what we know today, we read Savitri Devi’s Gold in the Furnace, a book written amid the ruin and desolation that was Germany in the immediate years after World War II, one cannot help but acknowledge the dual accuracy of this statement.

Henry Williamson

3,233 words

Henry Williamson was of the First World War generation from whose experiences emerged a new but eternal world-view. Williamson, like Knut Hamsun in Norway, saw man’s place in Nature as the ultimate source of one’s being, an idealization of nature as a reaction against the machine and the bank. The hope was of a new Springtime for the West in Spenglerian terms, the rural against the urban, the rootedness of the soil and of working the land against the nebulous city masses. It was what Spengler had called the final battle of “Civilization-Blood Against Money.”
