II. The Triadic Structure of the Political Unity

1. The political unity of the present-day state is a three-part summation of state, movement, and people. It is radically different from the liberal-democratic state schema that has come to us from the nineteenth century, and not only with respect to its ideological presuppositions and its general principles, but also in the essential structural and organizational lines of the concrete edifice of the state.

The Question of Legality (1950)

3,544 words

Translated by Simona Draghici

The Reverend Oratorian Father Laberthonnière, who died in 1932, left behind the voluminous work of a lifetime, which is being edited by his friend Louis Canet.

Isolationism & Pan-Interventionism

Shining_City_Upon_a_Hill_by_hawk862280 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

The American pretense of forming a new and uncorrupted world was tolerable for others as long as it remained associated with isolationist policies. A global line dividing the world in a binary manner in terms of good and evil is a line based on moral values.
