On March 11, 2014 the Student Union of the University College of London University banned a student organization, the Nietzsche Club, formerly Tradition UCL, for “endangering the student body” by promoting “racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Marxist, and anti-worker” ideas. Obviously, the Student Union is controlled by Marxists who wish to suppress contrary ideas. Here is a screen shot of the Student Union resolution:
The Nietzsche Club put up posters denouncing political correctness and the “false god” of equality. The club also advertised readings from Julius Evola, Alain de Benoist, and Martin Heidegger as well as Friedrich Nietzsche, clearly locating its sympathies with Traditionalism and the European New Right.
Apparently the trustees of the university suspended the ban to seek legal advice, leaving the Nietzsche Club in limbo.
I would like the leaders of the Nietzsche club to contact me at [email protected]. At the very least, I would like to make your acquaintance, offer some moral support, and send you some free books. If possible, I would like to do a print or audio interview as well. I will also be speaking in London at the end of September, which might be an occasion to meet.
Frankly, it is my hope that the attempt to ban the Nietzsche Club at London University will cause similar clubs to pop up all over the world. Counter-Currents will do whatever we can to encourage such projects.
