Trans. anonymous

Krössinsee (Pomerania), August 1939

In a kind of immense field opening up in the dense and unbroken mass of the Nordic forest, against the backdrop of the metallic colors of two large lakes, under a sky made particularly lofty by this constant horizontality and straightness, which, so to speak, constitutes the style of this Pomeranian landscape, stands a group of buildings. They are a singular mixture of the primordial, the archaic, and the modern. Read more …

The American Empire: Triumph & Expansion of the Federal State 

The story of America is also one of the steady fall of Jeffersonian democracy and the rise of Hamiltonian plutocracy, with an all-powerful federal government in symbiosis with a ruling oligarchy. This was not a given however, because the Republic created by the Constitution was actually a regime of divided sovereignty. Read more …

Part 1 of 3

An important project for the Alternative Right is the reclaiming of the ethno-nationalist and inegalitarian strands in Western thinking. This is often fairly easy to do: almost everything written before the 1960s was in some way or another politically-incorrect by the standards of today. I have previously attempted to do this regarding aristocratic, racial, and nationalist thought in Alexis de Tocqueville’s classic study, Democracy in America.[1] Read more …

Vydejte se, zachraňte svět

English original here

Někdy v roce 2003 jsem se cítil velice unavený a uvažoval, že nechám práce na jednom projektu spojeném s hnutím a trochu se vyspím. Bylo půl třetí ráno a moc jsem toho poslední dobou nenaspal. Pak mě ale napadlo: „Na co se vlastně šetříš?“ Potřeboval jsem spánek, abych si zachoval svou krásu? Všechno, co ušetříme, stejně musíme vydat, jelikož smrt nikomu nic nenechává. Tím, že se budeme šetřit, svět nezachráníme – toho dosáhneme jedině tím, že se vydáme.  Read more …

Ernest Renan on the Bourgeoisie

1,793 words

Translated by Charles Jansen

Translator’s Note:

Ernest Renan (1823–1892) is famous for his 1882 essay Qu’est-ce qu’une nation? (What is a Nation?), in which he upholds the idea that a nation is founded upon a social contract or a voluntary association of individuals rather than ties of blood or a common history. His statement that “a nation is a plebiscite of each day” has been a pillar of French civic education for decades. Read more …

Aleister Crowley (1875–1947), samozwańcza „Wielka Bestia 666” stał się postacią na trwale obecną zarówno w środowiskach okultystycznych jak i we współczesnej kulturze popularnej. Jedni wychwalają go jako filozofa, maga i proroka. Przez innych jest potępiany jako zdeprawowany egomaniak. W większości wypadków postrzega się go przez pryzmat jego ekscentrycznych, nierzadko szokujących zachowań.  Read more …

Editor’s Note:

This essay was written in 2000 and published online at a long-defunct website. It is really a sketch of a more detailed research project that somebody else might wish to carry out. Even as such, I think it deserves a new lease on life. I do not regret a single hour spent reading Ortega.

Recientemente he tenido una epifanía de cómo los Nacionalistas Blancos podrían hacer un mejor trabajo creando un movimiento vanguardista genuino. El Vanguardismo, al cual nunca me canso de señalar, es y siempre debe ser una estrategia elitista. La historia está hecha por las elites. Los blancos, sin embargo, son dominados por una elite judía y plutocrática que, a lo mejor, es indiferente al futuro de nuestra raza Read more …

The Smartest Guy in the Room

Headboard2,112 words

I recently had an epiphany about how White Nationalists might do a better job of creating a genuine vanguardist movement. Vanguardism, as I never tire of pointing out, is and must always be an elitist strategy. History is made by elites. Whites, however, are ruled by a Jewish and plutocratic elite that is at best indifferent to the future of our race and is at worst intentionally supporting policies that are leading to our simple biological extinctionRead more …

Editor’s Note:

This is the text of a talk that I gave on August 15, 1996 to an adult education class that I used to run in Atlanta, way back when I was in graduate school. I recall that the actual lecture was much longer and involved discussions of Rousseau, Kant, Schiller, and Hegel. If a tape comes to light, I will dub it and make it available.

Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

7,182 words

Two books published in the early 1950s by two European aristocrats merit careful study by every contemporary European conservative since they express the authentic reactions of authentic noblemen to the revolutionary changes that Europe has for long suffered under the yoke of democracy and totalitarianism. These are Erik, Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn’s Liberty or Equality: The Challenge of Our Time (1952) and Barone Giulio Cesare Evola’s Gli Uomini e le rovine (Men Among the Ruins) (1953).  Read more …
