On Liberty

Eugène Delacroix, "Liberty Leading the People," 1830

2,051 words

“Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

Juan Donoso Cortés

Juan Donoso Cortés, marqués de Valdegamas, 1809–1853

1,308 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Along with Count Joseph de Maistre and Viscount Louis de Bonald, Juan Donoso Cortés, the Marquis of Valdegamas, is part of the triad of the great counter-revolutionary thinkers of the 19th century whose message is still relevant today. In Italy, those aspects of Donoso Cortés’ teachings that are most important in our eyes are hardly known.

Julian Young’s Nietzsche’s Philosophy of Religion, Part 1

Part 1 of 2

Julian Young
Nietzsche’s Philosophy of Religion
New York: Cambridge University Press, 2006

Julian Young’s Nietzsche’s Philosophy of Religion is a tremendously exciting yet meticulously scholarly work, which overturns a century of Nietzsche interpretation, (primarily but not exclusively Anglophone) and re-roots Nietzsche solidly in the late 19th century “Volkish” environment Read more …

Deathways:
Four Race-Ending Life Paths of Young Whites

759 words

Another family gathering has reminded me of the always-depressing shape of too many White family trees — a family of five children that begets two grandchildren, a family of three children that begets none, and so on.  We are a race that has been sapped of our very will to exist — concerned with the continuation of every living thing on earth but its own people.  Could the irony of this ever be pointed out to a childless, 40-something White couple who work for an environmental advocacy group?

Früher in dieser Woche schrieb ich in Teil Eins dieser Kolumne über den Krieg gegen Weihnachten, daß „die jüdische Dominanz über Hollywood so offensichtlich und unbestreitbar ist, daß der Kolumnist Joel Stein von der Los Angeles Times es kürzlich offiziell machte. Was sonst kann man sagen, wenn alle acht großen Filmstudios von Juden geführt werden.“ Read more …

Postmodern Challenges:
Between Faust & Narcissus, Part 3

Jean-Paul Sartre, 1905–1980

2,063 words

Part 3 of 3

Translated by Greg Johnson

The Babbitt with the Sartrean Paradox

In 1945, the tone of ideological debate was set by the victorious ideologies. We could choose American liberalism (the ideology of Mr. Babbitt) or Marxism, an allegedly de-bourgeoisfied version of the metanarrative. Read more …

Against Nihilism:
Julius Evola’s “Traditionalist” Critique of Modernity

Julius Evola

5,326 words

With the likes of Oswald Spengler, whose Decline he translated for an Italian readership, and Jose Ortega y Gasset, Julius Evola (1898–1974) stands as one of the notably incisive mid-Twentieth Century critics of modernity. Like Spengler and Ortega, Evola understood himself to owe a formative debt to Friedrich Nietzsche, but more forcefully than Spengler or Ortega, Evola saw the limitations – the contradictions and inconsistencies–in Nietzsche’s thinking.

Why Conservatives STILL Can’t Win

1,841 words

French translation here

Recently I re-read William Pierce’s classic 1971 essay “Why Conservatives Can’t Win.” Like Pierce, if forced to choose between liberals and conservatives, I would side with conservatives. Conservatives have the indispensable political realism necessary for the preservation of any civilization. Liberalism, I will grant, does attract the best brains, blood, and spirit of our race. But though liberal idealism and imagination may adorn the heights of our civilization, they are undermining its foundations.

Why Conservatives Can’t Win

William Pierce

1,621 words

Some of my best friends are conservatives. I sincerely like them and I admire them for their genuine virtues: for their sense of propriety and personal integrity in an age of corruption, for their independent spirit and their willingness to stand on their own feet in an increasingly paternalistic society.

D. H. Lawrence on Fenimore Cooper’s Leatherstocking Novels

Andrew Wyeth, The Last of the Mohicans, 1919

5,821 words

Chapter 5 of Studies in Classic American Literature

In his Leatherstocking books, Fenimore is off on another track. He is no longer concerned with social white Americans that buzz with pins through them, buzz loudly against every mortal thing except the pin itself. The pin of the Great Ideal.

Amy Biehl:
A White Liberal on the Dark Continent

Amy Biehll, 1967–1993

2,618 words

Translations: French, German

News events and political interpretations of news events rarely coincide exactly. Life is generally messy and complicated, whereas political analysis aims, often legitimately, to simplify life’s complexity into a coherent pattern with a convincing political meaning.

Evolving into Consumerism—and Beyond It:
Geoffrey Miller’s Spent

2,042 words

Geoffrey Miller
Spent: Sex, Evolution, and Consumer Behavior
New York: Viking, 2009

When I was asked to review this book, I half groaned because I was sure of what to expect and I also knew it was not going to broaden my knowledge in a significant way. From my earlier reading up on other, but tangentially related subject areas (e.g., advertising), I already knew, and it seemed more than obvious to me, that consumer behavior had an evolutionary basis.

Darwin’s Other Idea:
Geoffrey Miller’s The Mating Mind

Geoffrey Miller
The Mating Mind: How Sexual Choice Shaped the Evolution of Human Nature
New York: Random House, 2000

Darwinian evolution is seen as a cold, ruthless struggle for survival that shaped what we eventually became. But, the critic responds, whence kindness, humor, language, playfulness, art and creativity? Scientists have tried to explain altruism towards relatives as kin selection and other forms of morality as based on reciprocity, but we all often help people who are not related to us when there’s nothing to be gained.

Christmas Special 
Unholy Night: The Jewish War on Christmas, 2009

ShittingSanta722 words

Now that we’ve reached December, it’s the time of year to observe (and suffer from) that familiar Jewish attitude toward Christmas: hate.

VDARE is now running its excellent War Against Christmas exposé of assaults on Christmas by “multicultural” haters of a holiday hundreds of millions of Americans love and cherish. For my money, it’s the best source of information on this particularly hurtful aspect of the war on Western cultures and people. Read more …

Earlier this week, in Part One of this column about the War on Christmas, I wrote that “the Jewish dominance of Hollywood is so obvious and undeniable that Los Angeles Times columnist Joel Stein recently made it official. What else can you say when all eight major film studios are run by Jews.” I’ve written on this theme extensively in The Occidental Quarterly (here, here, and here). Read more …
