Jonathan Bowden’s Apocalypse TV

1,359 words

Jonathan Bowden
Apocalypse TV
London: The Spinning Top Club, 2007

Apocalypse TV was published in August 2007 by the Spinning Top Club. It runs to 239 pages and contains a pencil sketch of the author in the frontispiece or prelims by Michael Woodbridge. It is quite different to the other books which I have reviewed by this author — novels and plays, etc. . . . — by being directly non-fictional in character. Read more …

Eustace Mullins

1,506 words

Earlier this year my friend Eustace Mullins passed away. He had been ailing for some time — at least since I first met him in 2006. Hopefully he is in a better place now.

Tradition & Revolution

Roman_Eagle603 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Translations of this translation: Czech, Romanian

What are we fighting for? Every political soldier has to raise this question. Contradictory as it might seem, we are inclined to answer that we fight for Tradition and Revolution.

Remembering Ezra Pound:
October 30, 1885 to November 1, 1972

539 words

“A slave is one who waits for someone else to free him.” — Ezra Pound

One of the ongoing projects of the North American New Right is the recovery of our tradition. One does not have to go too far back before one discovers that every great European thinker and artist is a “Right Wing extremist” by today’s standards.

Ezra Pound

Ezra Pound, drawn by Wyndham Lewis

2,422 words

Ezra Pound, heralded as the “founding father of modern English literature” yet denied honors during his life, was born in a frontier town in Idaho in 1885, the son of an assistant assayer and the grandson of a Congressman.

He enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania in 1901 and in 1906 was awarded his MA degree. He had already started work on his magnum opus, The Cantos. Read more …

“England,” Ezra’s Pound’s Radio Broadcast of March 15, 1942

1,979 words

Editor’s Note:

The following is the text of Ezra Pound’s Radio Rome broadcast of March 15, 1942. Pound began writing radio broadcasts in the fall of 1940. His first scripts were read by professional announcers. In January of 1941, he began to record his own scripts. Generally, he did two broadcasts per week, and he would pre-record them in batches of 10 to 20. The broadcasts ended in July, 1943 with the fall of the Mussolini government.

Ezra Pound on Money

Ezra Pound's May 26, 1945 mug shot

2,356 words

We’re never far from money. We spend most of our time and energy in quest of money.

But how did this thing become an intermediary between us and the world around us? Before money, we bartered. Why did money supplant barter and who is custodian of the money system?

These questions are dangerous: they cost Ezra Pound twelve years. Pound was a victim of political persecution at the behest of financiers and their minions like Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Read more …

On Christianity

1,381 words

French translation here

Editor’s Note:

Dalí, “The Madonna of Port Lligat,” second version, detail

In this 1982 article, William Pierce gives a beautiful demonstration of intellectual leadership on the Christian Question. The North American New Right, of course, is not a membership organization but an intellectual network/movement, so questions of membership criteria do not arise. Naturally, in the political realm, we are willing to cooperate with white people of all faiths to attain our common aims. Read more …

Jews, Islam, & Orientalism

2,042 words

martelIn Western history the Spanish Reconquista stands as an important landmark. Spain had once belonged to Islam, but with Reconquest the long Islamic intrusion which had begun in 711 was brought to an end, apparently decisively. From a Christian perspective the Reconquista was the gradual expulsion, beginning in the eleventh century and ending in the fifteenth, of Muslim unbelievers from the southwestern corner of Christendom; from a racialist perspective it was a literal culture-war of Europeans against Moors, waged by Spaniards, Frenchmen and Portuguese, the chivalry of White Europe.

Boldly going where no man has gone before: television's first interracial kiss on "Star Trek"

When most people see whites dating non-whites, the immediate assumption is that there is something wrong with the white. Usually the defects are obvious. We know why a homely or obese white woman is sleeping with blacks or Mexicans: They are willing to overlook her faults because she is white. Read more …

This is a translation of the article by Serrano published by the Chilean newspaper El Mercurio in 1961, following Carl Jung’s death.

Robert Steuckers’ Euro-Synergies is Europe’s leading New Right blog.

To Cleanse America:
Some Practical Proposals

Queen Isabella of Spain

1,069 words

Author’s Note:

The following short piece from 2002 or 2003 has the same major flaw as “Separatism vs. Supremacism,” namely, it deals with the issue in the abstract. Racial separation is not likely to happen this way. Nonetheless, it has the virtue of broadening the reader’s sense of what is morally and practically possible.

I hear a lot of defeatist talk among White Nationalists. Read more …

Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, & Blonde

1,000 words

Author’s Note:

While visiting friends recently, I saw this delightful movie again and thought it worthwhile to dust off my old review

I didn’t expect to like Legally Blonde 2. After all, according to Hollywood, Negroes are wise, noble, witty, and cool. They are cast as doctors, inventors, computer geniuses, judges, even God. But blondes, especially blue-eyed blondes like me — you know, “the Master Race” that Hollywood Jews hate and fear so much — are dumb.

Arlington Road is a terrific film. From the gripping opening scenes, it is a psychological and political thriller that is suspenseful, stylishly directed, and superbly acted. But the amazing plot twist at the end raises it to something much higher.

Author’s Note:

The following ended up on the cutting room floor as I prepared “Birth of a Nation,” my review of Harold Covington’s Northwest Quartet, for publication. I decided to cut it for lack of space, and also because I thought that even serious criticisms seemed petty when considered alongside the Quartet’s towering virtues. Read more …

The Overman High Culture:
Future of the West

3,313 words

Translations: French, Portuguese

Can the West and its peoples be saved? And what will this take–particularly if we are concerned with a long-term solution rather than a last ditch “stop gap?” Can a new High Culture of the West arise to secure the existence of the peoples of the West for an extended time frame? What characteristics should such a new culture have?
