Redressing the European Question

3,436 words

My recent essay here at Counter-Currents, “Europe and Europa,” provoked a particularly thoughtful and thorough response by one commentator, who in the space of a single comment touched upon most of the principal positions taken by what might be called more “Europeanist” thinkers of the New Right.

The Secret Silencing

Lessons from Demonland, Part One

2,077 words

Part 1 of 4

E. R. Eddison
The Worm Ouroboros
Charleston, S.C.: BiblioBazaar, 2008

Long would I hesitate before calling any literary work of the past century great.
