Whatever Happens, the Yellow Vests Have Already Won

Interviewed by Yann Vallerie; translated by Greg Johnson

Breizh-info.com: First of all, how do you analyze the events of these recent weekends?

What I find most striking is, first of all, the continuity of the movement. While the government expected the pressure to ease, it has not. It is the fruit of an extraordinary determination, to which is added a surprising maturity.  Read more …

U příležitosti 170. narozenin Georgese Sorela (2. listopadu 1847) přinášíme tento překlad pocty Sorelovi z pera Alaina de Benoista.

Přestože násilí nutně zůstává na pořadu dne vždy, 50. výročí úmrtí Georgese Sorela by prošlo takřka bez povšimnutí, kdyby nakladatelství Éditions Marcel Rivière nepřipadlo na myšlenku vydat znovu jeho Réflexions sur la violence [Úvahy o násilí] (Paris: Éditions Marcel Rivière, 1973). Read more …

3,873 words (Greek translation here; Hungarian translation here)

The following is the text of the talk that John Morgan was scheduled to deliver at Identitarian Ideas IX in Stockholm last Saturday, but was unable to due to circumstances beyond his control. As such it was intended for a primarily Swedish audience.

Today I want to talk about two schools of political thought that on the surface seem similar, but that are in fact quite different in a number of fundamental ways: namely the Alt Right and the European New Right. Read more …

Thoughts on the European New Right, Part 1

Part 1 of 4

Overview

The European New Right (ENR), born in 1968 in France, is the only school of thought that offers a comprehensive philosophical alternative to both the Left and the mainstream Right; not a political alternative or a cohesive popular movement, but a body of thought, an interpretative framework with distinctive concepts, major texts and authors pointing to a solid intellectual alternative to the establishment.

bhr6,534 words

Introduction

This essay examines Alain de Benoist’s book Beyond Human Rights, translated into English in 2011 by Arktos, originally published in French in 2004. This book is a powerful condemnation of the Western idea of natural rights, which it claims to be intrinsically associated with the idea that all humans across the world have human rights. It objects to the imposition of human rights obligations on an otherwise multicultural humanity. Read more …

Aby zrealizować swoje cele polityczne, Północnoamerykańska Nowa Prawica musi zrozumieć właściwe relacje pomiędzy teorią a zmianą społeczną, metapolitkyą a polityką, teorią a praktyką. Musimy uniknąć dryfowania w kierunku bezczynnego intelektualizmu albo bezmyślnego – a zatem najprawdopodobniej przynoszącego skutki odwrotne od zamierzonych – aktywizmu.

Trzecia Teoria Polityczna

roots3,314 words

English original here 

„Trzecią teorią polityczną” (w dalszej części artykułu określaną skrótem 3TP) Aleksander Dugin, w swojej „Czwartej Teorii Politycznej” nazywa faszyzm i narodowy socjalizm [1].

Według Dugina, narodowosocjalistyczne Niemcy i faszystowskie Włochy zostały nie tylko militarnie, ale również ideologicznie pokonane w II Europejskiej Wojnie Domowej (1939-45) – stały się ofiarami „morderstwa” lub być może „samobójstwa”. Read more …

Théorie et pratique

1,068 words

English version here

Pour atteindre nos buts politiques, la Nouvelle Droite Nord Américaine doit comprendre la relation appropriée entre théorie sociale et changement social, métapolitique et politique, théorie et pratique. Nous devons éviter de dériver vers l’intellectualisme inactif ou vers l’activisme inintelligent et donc possiblement contre-productif.

Le livre de Guillaume Faye, L’archéofuturisme [1], offre de nombreuses leçons importantes pour notre projet. Le chapitre 1, « Le bilan de la Nouvelle Droite », est le règlement de comptes de Faye avec la Nouvelle Droite française. Read more …

The Revolutionary Conservative Critique of Oswald Spengler

Oswald Spengler

Oswald Spengler

2,727 words

Oswald Spengler is by now well-known as one of the major thinkers of the German Conservative Revolution of the early 20th Century. In fact, he is frequently cited as having been one of the most determining intellectual influences on German Conservatism of the interwar period – along with Arthur Moeller van den Bruck and Ernst Jünger – to the point where his cultural pessimist philosophy is seen to be representative of Revolutionary Conservative views in general (although in reality most Revolutionary Conservatives held more optimistic views).[1]  Read more …
