Adolf Hitler, Sportpalast, Berlin, Germany, September 14, 1930

Remembering Oswald Spengler:
May 29, 1880–May 8, 1936

312 words

Oswald Spengler was born on this day in 1880. For his contributions to the philosophy of history and culture, Spengler is one of the most important philosophical influences on the North American New Right, largely by way of his disciple Francis Parker Yockey. Spengler is often wrong, but even when he errs, he does so magnificently. Read more …

Oswald Spengler:
May 29, 1880–May 8, 1936

4,970 words

For the Right, one might disagree with Oswald Spengler, but one cannot ignore him. Of course, for the Left and orthodox academia, the simplistic option is to ignore him. Spengler continues to pose a challenge, and his great questions of our epoch have yet to be fully answered. But it is essential that the questions are at least asked.

Portrait of John Locke, by Sir Godfrey Kneller, 1697

8,580 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Translator’s Note:

In “Critique of Liberal Ideology,” Alain de Benoist uses the term “liberalism” in the broad European sense of the term that applies not just to American liberalism but also to American libertarianism and mainstream conservatism, insofar as all three share a common history and common premises.

Remembering Louis-Ferdinand Céline:
May 27, 1894–July 1, 1961

Jean-Baptiste Martin, bust of Louis-Ferdinand Céline, bronze, 2004

142 words

Louis-Ferdinand Céline was the pen name of French novelist, essayist, and physician Louis-Ferdinand-Auguste Destouches, who was born on this day in 1894. Céline is one of the giants of 20th-century literature. And, like Ezra Pound and so many other great writers of the last century, he was an open and unapologetic racial nationalist.

Brave No More

Charles Bird King, "Young Omahaw, War Eagle, Little Missouri, and Pawnees," 1821, Smithsonian

981 words

I can’t think of too many English words more positive than “brave.”

The word brave conjures up a man who is bold and heroic. The brave man is no self-indulgent daredevil. He’s not pushy, cocky, or foolhardy. Read more …

Why Dark Shadows Sucks

3,548 words

I was a very small child when the Dark Shadows serial was first airing on ABC at 4:00pm Monday through Friday. Some of my most vivid early memories are associated with it. Dark Shadows was originally conceived as a Gothic romance. Premiering on June 27, 1966, it centered on Victoria Winters, a young woman who takes the job of governess to the young scion of the wealthy Collins family, who reside in the spooky Collinwood mansion in spooky Collinsport, Maine.

Assad’s Motives for Claiming Al-Qaeda Involvement with Syrian Rebels

558 words

Whenever you see something in the mainstream media, it’s always a good idea to ask yourself, “who benefits” from the situation and how it is portrayed. Besides the damning evidence Israel was directly involved in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, that question is why I’m highly skeptical about the terrorist network, Al-Qaeda.

On Oratory

Jean-Jules-Antoine Lecomte du Nouÿ, "Demosthenes Practicing Oratory," 1870

3,389 words

There is a vast gulf between oratory, on the one hand, and public speaking on the other.

By oratory I mean the art of speaking in the style we associate with great orators of the Western past, not elaborate, formal, public discourses treating important topics in a stiff, formal, or dignified manner.

Saviour

103 words

Pre-Christian image of a crucifixion, inscribed Orpheus and Bacchus

How well he knew the wives of publicans,
come-hither smiles beneath the crumbling arches,
the lingering scent of unattended cunts.
He too was half mad, fond of garum, March’s
somber unforgiving leaden sky.
Yes, he paid taxes, cursing Midas most.
Like all false prophets he was wont to lie,
the wine upon his tongue his holy ghost.
So when they nailed him to a wooden cross,
two centuries before Lord Jesus Christ,
he did not shout in anger at his father.
He sailed amid the midnight sky, across
the Milky Way—foot, finger, hand and wrist
prostrate—till he himself could go no farther.
