(Warning: This review contains spoilers for the plot of this opera.)

Leoš Janáček (1854-1928) was a Czech composer known for his combination of folk music with a strikingly original modernism. There is no other composer who sounds remotely like him. He is as instantly recognizable as Vivaldi, Wagner, or Philip Glass.  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 …

Giorgio de Chirico, "Les Masques"

Giorgio de Chirico, “Les Masques”

3,924 words

English original here

Z tempa technologického pokroku se nám může snadno zatočit hlava a navykli jsme si očekávat nekonečný proud rychlejších a výkonnějších zařízení. Budoucí vývoj takových technologií slibuje stále sofistikovanější stroje, které zpochybní základní premisu lidské nadřazenosti. Je vynakládáno velké úsilí na dosažení dystopické budoucnosti strojů, nadaných úžasnými schopnostmi, jejichž samotná existence možná způsobí nahrazení lidstva.  Read more …

Archäofuturistische Fiktion 
Frank Herberts Dune

1,248 words

DuneFirstEditionEnglish original here

Wenn Science-Fiction typischerweise „progressiv“ und Fantasy-Literatur „rückwärtsgewandt“ ist, dann brauchen wir eine dritte Kategorie für die sechs Dune-Bücher von Frank Herbert (1920-1986) – gar nicht zu reden von George Lucas’ sechs Star Wars-Filmen –, die futuristische Sci-Fi-Elemente mit den archaischen Werten und magischen Welten der Fantasy verbinden.

Archeofuturist Fiction 
Frank Herbert’s Dune, Part 1

DuneFirstEdition1,591 words

Part 1 of 2

German translation here

If science fiction is quintessentially “progressive” and fantasy literature is “reactionary,” then we need a third category for the six Dune books by Frank Herbert (1920–1986)—not to mention George Lucas’ six Star Wars movies—which combine futuristic, sci-fi elements with the archaic values and magical universes of fantasy.  Read more …
