Příspěvek k výkladům Lea Strausse

Leo Strauss, 1899–1973

6,759 slov

English original here

Poznámka autora:

Následující esej jsem napsal v 90. letech jako doktorand, ne v rámci svých studijních povinností, ale spíš abych si ujasnil své myšlenky ohledně čtení filozofických textů v rámci přípravy k psaní své vlastní doktorské disertační práce. Jen těžko dokážu uvěřit, že jsem míval dostatek volného času na to, abych psal eseje o skoro osmi tisících slovech „do šuplíku,“ ale důkaz máte před sebou. Read more …

Behind the Wicker Man

2,446 words

Elizabeth Hand
Wylding Hall
New York: Open Road Media, 2015

The photos I saw in the pub—the hunting of the wren—the song Julian unearthed and a half-naked girl with feathers on her feet … it all adds up, doesn’t it? Read more …

Chairman Soros’ (Not So) New Directive

George Soros

1,025 words

Maybe some of you can still remember those golden years, when the main proof of the dictatorial nature of a number of regimes within “the axis of evil” was that they allowed only restricted access to the internet. This distant past ended the day before yesterday, when George Soros, suddenly becoming a fierce enemy of Facebook and Google, predicted that the new lethal weapon of “the enemies of open societies” would be an alliance of digital technologies and authoritarianism.

O stolzere Trauer! Ihr ehernen Altäre,
Die heiße Flamme des Geistes nährt heute ein gewaltiger Schmerz,

Against One-Dimensional Reading of History

Who built that? For what purpose?

2,216 words

After the recent debate on Andy Warski’s YouTube channel between Greg Johnson, the Academic Agent and others, the Academic Agent posted a series of videos arguing against Greg Johnson’s positions. In one of them, childishly titled Greg Johnson Doesn’t Understand History,[1] he tries to explain historical progress from a libertarian standpoint. Read more …

Plato’s Spiritual Exercises

1,764 words

Translator’s Note: The following is drawn from Pierre Hadot, Qu’est-ce que la philosophie antique? (Paris: Gallimard, 1995), pp. 107-114. The footnotes have been simplified. The quotes of Plato have generally been drawn from Plato, Complete Works, ed. John M. Cooper (Indianapolis: Hackett, 1997). The title is editorial.

In his Seventh Letter, Plato states that if one does not adopt this [philosophical] way of life, then life is not worth living, and that is why one must immediately decide to follow this “path,” this “marvelous path.” This way of life incidentally requires a considerable effort, which must be renewed each day.

Fernando Pessoa

4,439 words

Fernando Pessoa was the greatest Portuguese poet of the modern era and arguably one of the most interesting and protean literary figures of the twentieth century. His vast body of work, some of which remains unpublished, includes hundreds of poems as well as essays on philosophy, religion, literature, and politics. His verse combines avant-garde modernism with pagan mysticism and a vision of national rebirth. Read more …

The 1990s & Contemporary Pro-White Metapolitics

Mexican Identity Politics during the Protest of California’s Proposition 187 in 1994

2,098 words

I was born in 1996. Despite my lack of memories of this decade, many readers of Counter-Currents undoubtedly have strong, perhaps viscerally negative impressions of the years 1990 to 2000, wherein optimism surrounding globalization made the Western intelligentsia confidently proclaim the last man and the end of history. Some of you might have positive memories of a simpler time before you were red pilled. Read more …

On Rousseau’s Discourse on Inequality

3,313 words

In order to embrace the Right, whites must first overcome their shame and embarrassment when contemplating race. Our most difficult and dangerous hurdle, I believe, but also our most important one. Much of this involves resisting the temptation to impute a typical white temperament onto non-whites, especially primitive non-whites. Read more …

Which Traditional Britain?

5,702 words

The following is the text of a talk that was delivered at the annual conference of the Traditional Britain Group that was held on October 24, 2015. The video is here.

The problem with talking about tradition as applied to our present world, at least within the context of a people or a country with a long history, is determining what, exactly, tradition is, and which tradition to draw upon. Read more …

An Exemplar of Our Hostile Elite

1,989 words

Dianne Feinstein

Occasionally an example of an abstract idea comes along that is so perfect, one almost wonders if it was invented, and Dianne Feinstein is such a case. If there is anyone today who embodies our hostile elite–it’s her. Should Whites be lucky enough to one day find a new land of our own, the successful career of California’s current octogenarian senator will be sure to inspire particular shock in students.

Politický voják:
Teorie partyzána Carla Schmitta

Hermann Löns, Der Werwolf (dřevoryt Hans Pape)

3,579 slov

English original here

Civilizující génius evropského člověka byl tak mocný, že se mu na čas podařilo zkrotit dokonce i válku samotnou. Ne každou válku lze ale vybojovat civilizovaně – jen ty mezi civilizovanými evropskými státy. Pravidla svazující válku se nevztahovala na války proti nestátním subjektům, jako v případě koloniálních válek proti divochům, občanské války a revoluce, v nichž se ocitá v sázce samotný stát, či nepravidelná válka proti partyzánům a guerillám, kterým se zabývá Schmittovo dílko Teorie partyzána (1962). 1] Read more …

Massimo Pigliucci’s Cognitive Dissonance on Illegal Immigration & the Fall of the Roman Empire

1,359 words

Massimo Pigliucci is an evolutionary biologist and professor of philosophy at the City University of New York. He has played an important role in the popularization of a modern Stoicism in recent years (see his useful collection of materials for practicing Stoicism on his blog).

While some of the renewed interested in Stoicism, like Buddhism, has a somewhat commercial flavor, I for one think this is a very good development. Read more …

Co je to identitářství

Členové Identitás Generáció před kinem Corvin, jedním z největších center odporu během Maďarské revoluce v roce 1956, u připomínky jejího šedesátého výročí 23. října 2016.

Následující esej jsem napsal na žádost maďarské pobočky Generace Idenity Identitás Generáció, za účelem překladu do maďarštiny. Původní anglická verze se poprvé objevuje zde.

Byl jsem požádán, abych představil koncept identitářství. Jakkoliv se toho velmi rád zhostím, je poněkud paradoxní, aby evropské skupině kázal o identitářství právě Američan. Read more …

Proč „bělošský“ nacionalismus?

Edward Wadsworth, Dazzle-ships in Drydock at Liverpool, 1919

1,059 slov

English original here

Proč se nazývám bělošským nacionalistou? Jako Američanovi evropského původu mi v prvé řadě záleží na přežití mé rasy – jak na americkém kontinentu, tak i ve zbytku světa.  Ve všech bělošských zemích dnes umírá více bělochů, než se jich rodí a naše lidi nahrazují velice plodní Neevropané. Nedojde-li ke zvratu tohoto vývoje, naše rasa fyzicky vyhyne. Jak už jsem ukázal jinde, nejlepší cestou k naší záchraně je vytvoření homogenních bělošských zemí s politikou na podporu porodnosti a aplikací eugeniky. Read more …
