Today is the birthday of Robert Brasillach, French journalist, novelist, and film historian (The History of Motion Pictures, co-written with Maurice Bardéche).

Welcome to the League of Shadows!

The Man of the Twentieth Century:
Remembering Ernst Jünger,
March 29, 1895-February 17, 1998

3,524 words

Hungarian translation here; Czech translation here

If I could choose to be anyone from the twentieth century, I would not hesitate for a moment to pick Ernst Jünger. The man did just about everything it was possible to do in his time, and stretched the limits of what one individual can accomplish in a lifetime to their breaking point. His incredible lifespan alone (he died a month shy of his 103rd birthday) spanned the Kaiserreich, the German Revolution, the Weimar Republic, the Third Reich, the Federal Republic of Germany, and finally, reunited Germany in his final decade – Read more …

Whose Jane Austen is It, Anyway?

Mock ad by Michael O’Donoghue & George W. S. Trow, 1971 National Lampoon

2,215 words

For the past couple of weeks there’s been a lot of media blather about how the novelist Jane Austen is an icon of the Alt Right. The distress this causes Leftist critics has been a thing of high comedy and low hysteria.

If you haven’t been keeping up, I review some articles immediately below. Otherwise, feel free to skip about halfway down, where I get into matters of cultural appropriation and Austen sex roles. Read more …

The Power of Myth:
Remembering Joseph Campbell,
March 26, 1904-October 30, 1987

2,315 words

Joseph Campbell, the famed teacher of comparative mythology, was born on this day in 1904. For many people, including yours truly, he has served as a “gateway drug” into not only a new way of looking at myths, but into a non-materialistic way of viewing the world. And although as a public figure, Campbell mostly remained apolitical, evidence from his private life indicates that he was at least nominally a “man of the Right.” Read more …

This essay is part of the George Lincoln Rockwell Centennial series.

The Eternal Crusade

A fellow officer lays flowers for police officer Keith Palmer, who was killed in Wednesday’s terrorist attack.

95 words

These once-green fields now soaked in blood,
the blood of those here born;
their cries were heard by few in number,
though millions in their heart.
Now comes the time to raise our steel,
the sunbeams of their blades,
to go beyond our homely shores,
forever more,
forever more. Read more …

An Open Letter to Publishers & Readers Concerning Amazon’s Censorship

4,354 words

Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon.com, with Michelle Obama.

Dear Friends and Fellow Publishers:

My name is Chip Smith and I’m the sole proprietor of a small press called Nine-Banded Books, or just 9BB. You probably haven’t heard of 9BB, and that’s fine by me. The books I publish aren’t for everyone. Some of them deal with prickly ideas that many people – perhaps you? – will find offensive. That’s nothing new. Read more …

For London: Not a Prayer, Unless . . .

117 words

The waters soon close dark and velvet-heavy
around a stone big enough to smash a skull,
the ripples torpid as in mud or gravy.
What will it take to clarify these dull,
foetid waters, for our men to reject
The notion that wild animals are as tame
as they; our feral women a foul object
one shudders to give credence to, or name.

Social Credit & Association

C. H. Douglas, the British Social Credit pioneer.

1,146 words

There is drawn no boundary,
No hard, wretched earth-clod bars our way,
And we sail across the sea,
And we wander countries far away.

–“Human Pride,” Karl Marx

When President Trump issued an executive order temporarily banning immigrants from seven countries, he quickly found out that the ability to associate with people of one’s choice was not so easy – even for the denizens of a superpower. His order was quickly challenged in court and worldwide demonstrations demanded the right of entry to America for all, even if the Americans don’t want to associate with particular people.

What Would the Dulles Brothers Do?

Allen Welsh Dulles & John Foster Dulles

2,236 words

After decades of blessed obscurity, the Dulles brothers have splashed back into the news of late. There are big books, little books, forthcoming books: all leading to a flurry of newspaper and online articles (notably Alex Beam’s March 8 essay in The Wall Street Journal). 

The two major volumes that have led the way are The Brothers: John Foster Dulles, Allen Dulles, and Their Secret World (2013) by onetime New York Times reporter Stephen Kinzer; and The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government (2015) by David Talbot Read more …

On the Necessity of Christianity:
A Response to Vox Day

Joseph-Nicolas Robert-Fleury, Galileo before the Holy Office

1,485 words

It’s not often we find Vox Day making a mistake. In his recent post entitled “Mailvox: The Necessity of Christianity,” I believe Vox makes not one but two when he says that the ancient Greeks did not develop science, and that “any efforts to make America and Europe great are doomed unless they are centered around Christianity.” Read more …

The Buddha as Spiritual Lawgiver

3,870 words

Sayings of the Buddha
Rupert Gethin, translator
Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2008

Anyone who wishes to promote certain values is faced with the challenge of how to maintain those values over time: throughout one’s life, from one generation to the next, and across the centuries. A people’s adherence to values is likely to wane over time, overcome by lower drives, such as the desires for material comfort and personal self-indulgence. Read more …
