A Globalist Struggles to Explain the Failure of Globalism

1,483 words

Ian Bremmer
Us vs. Them: The Failure of Globalism
Portfolio/Penguin, 2018

Glancing through the blurbs on the back of Ian Bremmer’s new bestseller, one finds the Secretary-General of the UN, a managing director of the IMF, a co-chairman of the European Council on Foreign Relations, the President of the International Rescue Committee, and Larry Summers: not a lineup one would expect to find endorsing a bold challenge to conventional thinking.

The Epic of Human Evolution:
Johannes V. Jensen’s The Long Journey

Johannes V. Jensen

4,932 words

Johannes V. Jensen cannot be called a forgotten writer — he won the Nobel Prize in Literature for 1944 and is still remembered in his native Denmark — yet his name will probably be unfamiliar to most of my readers. He was born in 1873, the second of eleven children of a veterinary surgeon in the village of Farsø in Northern Jutland. To help finance his medical studies at the University of Copenhagen, he began writing “cliffhanger” newspaper serials. After three years, he switched to full-time writing and journalism.  Read more …

Attack of the Paleosaurs
or The Dangers of Sectarianism in Politics

Graphic: Voivode Wingate

Graphic: Voivode Wingate

1,737 words

It appears that polemics against “white nationalism” have become quite the trend at Chronicles, the flagship publication of paleoconservatism. A couple weeks ago I responded to Aaron Wolf’s article “Incidentally White” at radixjournal.com, and now I discover that only a month earlier, editor Chilton Williamson, Jr. had produced a broadly similar piece under the title “White Like Me.” Read more …

The Evolutionary Psychologist’s Guide to Picking Up Girls

Mate1,406 words

Tucker Max and Geoffrey Miller
Mate: Become the Man Women Want
New York: Little, Brown and Company, 2015

Time was when a young man did not need to master evolutionary psychology in order to find himself a girl. The adult world provided the young with ready-made social rituals for meeting, assessing one another’s prospects as a mate, and (eventually) entering into a lifelong covenant to bear and raise a new generation.

The Roots of German Self-Immolation

Image 1

Why go to Calcutta, when you can bring Calcutta home?

1,031 words

Great historical changes are often sparked by trivial events, but have deeper causes going back for generations or even centuries. The immediate trigger of the horrifying events currently unfolding in Germany is said to have been a “tweet” casually sent out August 25 by the Office for Refugees and Migrants of the German city of Nuremberg. The “tweet” merely stated that Germany was no longer applying the accepted EU rule that applications for asylum must be made from the first EU country a person enters. Read more …

Viktor Orbán

Viktor Orbán

1,017 words

English original here

Zakázanie konferencie NPI (Národný politický inštitút) na tému „Budúcnosť Európy“ vládou prezidenta Viktora Orbána bolo bezprecedentnou udalosťou v histórii post-komunistického Maďarska. Ide o zlom pre identitárne hnutia a možno i pre samotný kontinent, keďže jeho vládcovia dali jasne najavo, že v Európe nedovolia obhajobu európskych záujmov.

Viktor Orbán

Slovakian translation here

Suppression of the National Policy Institute’s conference on The Future of Europe by the government of President Viktor Orbán was an event unprecedented in the history of post-communist Hungary. It marks a watershed for the Identitarian movement, and perhaps even for the continent itself, as its rulers have now made unmistakably clear that they will not permit advocacy on behalf of European interests in Europe.

The Question of Female Masochism

50ShadesofGreyCoverArt2,570 words

“If He Doesn’t Hit You, He Doesn’t Love You.” So runs an African proverb. Or a Russian proverb, according to other sources. Or a Bolivian proverb, according to still others. Perhaps it is all three. A similar Latin American saying, “The more you hit me, the more I love you,” turns up over 100,000 hits on Google.

It is hardly a new idea that female sexuality has a masochistic component. Read more …
