After Bowden’s Credo

Jonathan Bowden, "Shy Titan"

158 words

It doesn’t make any difference, how
You died, or when. It’s enough that you’re dead
And that we cannot ever hear you now
Except in memories. You’ve gone ahead—
While we stay here. We must not mourn, must find
Instead, in the words that you left to us—
“The glory of our tribe is not behind
us, we can be great again.” – what we must
find in ourselves in the coming days– “I
am not afraid and I have no regrets.”
You’re dead, but “We are all going to die”
And we who are not dead have not died yet.

We hike toward the Black Sun, raise horns, clasp Fate.
We’re on our own, alive for now, and great.

Note: this was inspired by Bowden’s speech “Credo: A Nietzschean Testament” quoted by a Counter-Currents commentor, “Oxy”; many thanks for that—it gave a needed foothold to melancholy inspiration.

    The internet archive does not have copies of his audio or video lectures that were available on his website. If anyone has access to those I would be happy to put them in a torrent or similar to make them more widely accessible.

      I downloaded seven of his lectures – my favorites – from his website before it was closed:

      – bill hopkins
      – Nietzschen Credo
      – Heidegger and Death
      – Marxism
      – Revisionism
      – Robinson Jeffers
      – Wyndham Lewis

      He unfortunately never updated his website to include his speeches of recent years, but many are to be found on youtube.

        In the coming weeks we will publish transcriptions of Bowden’s:

        Robinson Jeffers
        Thomas Carlyle

        And others . . .

      Didn’t someone develop a Bowden torrent?

      Is it having trouble being hosted, or what?

      Anyone know?

    I have been listening to some of his speeches and lectures. Fascinating man. What did he do to day to day to survive economically? Did he survive on his book sales and lecture honoraria?

      I don’t think that Jonathan made much from his books and lectures. I have no idea how he lived, actually.

    As far as I remember, Mr. Bowden ran two websites. They are off-line already; WOULD BE GREAT if they would be relaunch by his comrades!!!! Please consider this option!
