Oratorical Terrorism:
How Scott Terry Ruined CPAC

scottterry1,049 words

The Republican Party faithful are in a blind panic, desperate for answers and clarity in the wake of a devastating defeat. This year’s CPAC was an opportunity for them to gather under one roof and chart a path forward.

The usual suspects made the usual arguments.

Teaching Table Manners to Cannibals

The Son of Man, by René Magritte, 1964

René Magritte, “The Son of Man,” 1964

703 words

Despite its pretensions, Modernity presents at least as many taboos and behavioral limitations as the stuffiest Victorian ball. One must never discriminate, one must never judge, and one must never be a dreaded hypocrite. If America’s social and political trajectory should be summed up in a pithy phrase, perhaps it could be “a complete lack of judgment.” To judge is to ascribe value to things, an intrinsically hierarchical, discriminatory, and anti-egalitarian exercise.

The Beginning & the End of History

hoplites-fighting1,493 words

The duel to the death over honor is a remarkable phenomenon. Animals duel over dominance, which insures their access to mates. But these duels result in death only by accident, because the whole process is governed by their survival instincts, and their “egos” do not prevent them from surrendering when the fight is hopeless.

Hieronymus Bosch, “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” right panel, detail

1,155 words

French translation here

“Postmodernism” is one of those academically fashionable weasel words like “paradigm” that have now seeped into middlebrow and even lowbrow discourse. Those of us who have fundamental and principled critiques of modernity quickly learned that postmodernism is not nearly postmodern enough. Read more …

Youth Without Youth

youth-without-youth2,179 words

Youth Without Youth (2007) is Francis Ford Coppola’s stunning film adaptation of a novella of the same name by Mircea Eliade (1907–1986), the Romanian scholar of comparative religion and Iron Guard sympathizer. I highly recommend this beautiful, mysterious, endlessly captivating movie. In style, it is classic; in substance, it is eternal.

The Concept of Initiation

Great Eleusis Frieze, Eleusis Museum, Greece, late 5th c. BCE

Great Eleusis Frieze, Eleusis Museum, Greece, late 5th c. BCE

9,609 words

Translated by Bruno Cariou

It is not easy, today, to give an exact idea of what is meant by Initiation and to define the figure of the ‘Initiate’. The main difficulty lies in the necessity of referring to a vision of the world and man, and to structures, which belong essentially to traditional civilisations, distant from the present one, not only from the modern mentality and culture, but also, to a large extent, from the religion which has come to predominate in the West.

Casa Pound

Casa Pound2,417 words

Translated by Adam D. Smith

“With usura hath no man a house of good stone,” wrote Ezra Pound in Canto XLV. “Usura” is symbolic of the culture destroying, hostile, and inhumane reign of interest, capital, and the banks. Pound also said: “A man can inhabit one house, also another, but a third is capital with which he wants to earn money.”
