(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 …

Umělá inteligence, válka páté generace a archeofuturismus

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 …

Paleofuturism for the Man; Archeofuturism for the People

paleomanifestoPALEOFUTURISM

There are 3 types of people in the world: People who haven’t heard of the paleo diet, people who have tried the paleo diet, and people who can’t wait to tell you how stupid it is.

People in the last group want to tell you how we’re still evolving, how different groups evolved differently, how you couldn’t live like our ancestors even if you tried, how the paleo diet isn’t sustainable for the world’s growing population, how SCIENCE! can produce superior health and athleticism, and how all that meat and fat will make you obese and give you a heart attack.  Read more …

Our Wagner, Only Better:
Harry Partch, Wild Boy of American Music, Part 3

4,566 words

harrypartch[1]Part 3 of 3

Lacking the notion of radical traditionalism, Partch’s audiences tended to misunderstand him, by assimilating him to either of two reassuringly familiar roles: as either an “Orientalist” or some kind of “avant-garde” radical.

These were two things that infuriated Partch as failures to understand what he was doing. The first, beloved of lazy though positive reviewers and polite guests, was to say something like “It’s very Oriental, isn’t it?”[1] In a very superficial sense, it is—it seems mostly gongs and mallets, with nary a string instrument to be found— Read more …

The Archaic Future

1,117 words

In Archeofuturism, Guillaume Faye envisions a future world that simultaneously embraces both the latest advances in science and technology, and the values and worldview of Homer and ancient myths. A world that is profoundly inegalitarian, in which might makes right, but in which might now includes the powers of science. Read more …

The Essence of Archaism

935 words

From L’Archéofuturisme (Paris: L’Aencre, 1998)

Translator’s Note:

In L’Archéofuturisme Guillaume Faye envisages, sometime within the next two decades, a large-scale civilizational crisis, provoked by what which he calls a “convergence of catastrophes.” For the post-crisis world Faye proposes, in terms that at times recall the Italian Futurists of the early twentieth century, the construction of a European Empire founded on essential, archaic values and on a bold, aggressive exploitation of science and technology: hence the concept of “archeofuturism,” the re-emergence of archaic social configurations in a new context.
