A Política da Guerra Nuclear, Parte 1

Graphic by Harold Arthur McNeill

3,572 words

Parte 1 de 3

Inglês original aqui

Introdução

O mês passado marcou o 50º aniversário da Crise dos Mísseis Cubanos. Isso mereceu um pouco mais do que uma menção de passagem na mídia, apesar do fato de ter sido o momento mais dramático e icônico do meio século de Guerra Fria, um conflito que teve mais participações do que qualquer outro na história e que continua a assombrar o nosso cenário político atual.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

917 words

I am sorry to report that I was disappointed by The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first installment of Peter Jackson’s film trilogy based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit.

Jackson’s first mistake was trying to make a trilogy at all. The Hobbit is shorter than any of the three volumes of The Lord of the Rings. Thus its story could have been told completely and satisfyingly in a single movie of around two hours.

Red Dawn (1984)

3,819 words

Successful action films come twice – the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce. Red Dawn is a classic of the Cold War, a near perfect encapsulation of the unique psyche of Conservativus Americanus during the long twilight struggle against Soviet Communism. Perhaps despite itself, it also contains Traditionalist themes that make it a true classic of the authentic Right.

Richard Burton: In from the Cold

3,501 words

For years nothing about Richard Burton attracted my attention to him more than to any other famous person. He appeared in many inferior films, but even his highly regarded ones—Look Back in Anger (1959-British), The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1965), The Taming of the Shrew (1967-US-Italian), 1984 (1984)—were not among my favorites.

Giacinto Scelsi:
A Soundtrack for Radical Traditionalism

2,630 words

“Rome is the boundary between East and West. South of Rome, the East starts, and north of Rome, the West starts. This border-line now, runs exactly over the Forum Romanum. There’s my house, this explains my life and my music.” — Giacinto Scelsi

The music of Giacinto Scelsi is still relatively obscure, which is in keeping with the reclusive and esoteric character of the composer himself. Read more …

Why All that Theory?

Plato and Aristotle from Raphael’s “The School of Athens”

4,336 words

There are those who wonder what the point is in discussing abstract theory while we are losing control over our society, in concrete and measurable ways, on multiple fronts, on a daily basis. For them abstract theory is just words, futile and devoid of meaning because their effect cannot be quantified, because their abundance is disproportionate to their physical effects, and because what ultimately counts for them is what transpires in empirical reality.

The aim of this brochure is to express the fundamentals of economics so simply and clearly that even people of different economic schools and factions will be able to understand each other when they discuss them.

After about forty pages I shall not ‘descend’, but I shall certainly go into, ‘go down into’ repetitions and restatements in the hope of reaching this clarity and simplicity.  Read more …

Grant Wood, “Stone City, Iowa,” 1932

The other night, while at a barn sale/estate sale of old things left behind by examples of Western Civilization’s last purely self-contained generation, the lights went out. An electrical substation blew a mile or so away, and right there in the middle of the bidding on a box of blue and white English-made transfer-ware  darkness descended.  Read more …

Can You Drop Out?

4,103 words

Simply to survive, whites require state power. The ways we obtain it, where it should take place, what ideas or culture it should be based on, and how exactly we are going to get there are all up for debate. State power will be the last step of a political, metapolitical, cultural, economic, and military project that will last for many years. Nonetheless, it is a necessity.

This sounds like work, including work that is dangerous, work that is difficult, and work that is boring. So why bother? Read more …

A Note on the Art of Political Conversion

Thomas Ernest Hulme, 1883–1917

3,338 words

Some day a wonderful book will be written on the art of persuasion, a new sophistic. One may suppose that psychology will ultimately become as complete a science as geometry and mechanics are now. It will be possible then to predict the effect of an argument on a man’s mind as surely as one can now predict the eclipse of the moon. On the basis of this developed science will be built an infallible set of rules for converting a man to any opinion you like.

The New Inquisitors:
Heretical Scientists Purged from Academia

3,527 words

Detail from a painting by Pedro Berruguete on the life of Santo Domingo de Guzmán depicting Dominican friars burning heretical books

The Stalin and Hitler regimes were both noted for their repression of scientists and intellectuals who did not toe their respective party lines.

Many Left-wing academics, centered on the Frankfurt School of Critical Theory, were sponsored to leave Germany and emigrate to the US, where they took over the social sciences and created a virtual totalitarianism of their own in American academia.[1] Read more …
