The Saga of “Blanket Man”

Anarchist print of Blanket Man as revolutionary hero

2,055 words

Part 2 of 2

5. The Good Man and the Good Citizen

Re-Reading Rousseau

Maurice Quentin de La Tour, “Portrait of Jean-Jacques Rousseau” (1712–1778), pastel on paper, 1753

10,607 words

Translated by Greg Johnson*

Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712–1778) is a rather curious case in the history of ideas. After two centuries, he is still the object of truly passionate opinions (you either love him or you hate him), and few authors have given rise to as many contradictory interpretations. He is commonly seen as an inspiration for the French Revolution, but also as an influence on German nationalism. Read more …

The Last Tory

1,462 words

Enoch Powell never quite fits, even in some alternate history, as the leader of a British nationalist movement. A faithful soldier of the Empire, a creature of the Establishment, an idiosyncratic scholar of the classics, an unpredictable and careful student of policy, Powell was no right wing radical. He was a conservative to the core, in his own words, “born a Tory . . . a person who regards authority as immanent in institutions. Read more …

Remembering Enoch Powell:
June 16, 1912–February 8, 1998

618 words

Saturday, June 16th is the 100th birthday of Enoch Powell, the British statesman who is most famous for his “Rivers of Blood” speech on April 20, 1968, in which he warned, prophetically, of the dangers of massive non-white immigration into the United Kingdom.

Powell called for cutting off legal as well as illegal immigration and for repatriating non-white immigrants whose high birthrates would eventually lead them outnumber the native British. Read more …

Remembering William Butler Yeats:
June 13, 1865–January 28, 1939

Yeats1903147 words

William Butler Yeats, the Irish poet, playwright, and politician, was born on this day in 1865. One of the greatest literary figures of the 20th century, Yeats’ life and work straddle the great divide between Romanticism and Modernism. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923.

In life and in art, Yeats rejected modern rationalism, materialism, and egalitarianism. He saw them as coarsening and brutalizing.

Spiritually, Yeats was drawn to mysticism and the occult, influenced in particular by Emanuel Swedenborg and William Blake. Read more …
