ABC of Economics, Part 5 & Conclusion

2,810 words

Part 5 of 5

Chapter I

Minor Addenda and Varia 

I have never met a gambler with an ounce of intelligence, but the prejudice against lotteries is in the category of superstitions, totemism and taboo. Lotteries can harm only the imbeciles who buy tickets, but these imbeciles appear to be wholly in their own right. Read more …

Licurgo e o Estado Espartano

3,651 words

English original here

“E Teopompo, quando um estranho continuou a dizer, conforme ele lhe demonstrou gentileza, que em sua própria cidade ele era considerado amante de Esparta, disse: ‘Meu bom senhor, melhor seria para ti ser chamado amante de tua própria cidade’.” – Plutarco [1]

Assim como Mussolini olhava para a Roma Antiga por um modelo de uma sociedade sadia e orgânica, os antigos romanos olhavam para Esparta. Read more …

“And Theompopus, when a stranger kept saying, as he showed him kindness, that in his own city he was called a lover of Sparta, remarked: ‘My good sir, it were better for thee to be called a lover of thine own city.’” – Plutarch[1]

Oswald Spengler:
May 29, 1880–May 8, 1936

4,970 words

For the Right, one might disagree with Oswald Spengler, but one cannot ignore him. Of course, for the Left and orthodox academia, the simplistic option is to ignore him. Spengler continues to pose a challenge, and his great questions of our epoch have yet to be fully answered. But it is essential that the questions are at least asked.

When Mussolini Scorned Hitler

Italy's Benito Mussolini

2,325 words

Italian leader Benito Mussolini assumed power in 1922. Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany on January 30, 1933.

Hitler had long idolized Mussolini, and during the first years of Hitler’s rule Mussolini remained a much more commanding figure on the international stage. Indeed, Hitler was often ridiculed in the world press as an absurd, puny version of the Italian leader.

What Did Ezra Pound Really Say?

2,465 words

From 1945 through 1958 America’s iconoclastic poet — the flamboyant Ezra Pound, one of the most influential individuals of his generation — was held in a Washington, D.C. mental institution, accused of treason. Pound had merely done what he had always done — spoken his mind. Unfortunately for Pound, however, he had made the error of criticizing the American government in a series of broadcasts from Italy during World War II. Read more …

What is Money For?

4,741 words

We will never see an end of ructions, we will never have a sane and steady administration until we gain an absolutely clear conception of money. I mean an absolutely not an approximately clear conception.

I can, if you like, go back to paper money issued in China in or about A.D. 840, but we are concerned with the vagaries of the Western World. Read more …

The Doctrine of Fascism

Graphic by Harold Arthur McNeill

6,739 words

Editor’s Note:

Benito Mussolini was born on July 29, 1883. In honor of his birthday, I am reprinting his essay “The Doctrine of Fascism,” which I find to be a lucid and profound statement of revolutionary anti-liberalism. Mussolini has much to contribute to the project of a North American New Right, and by his next birthday, I hope this website will better reflect that fact. Read more …

Vilfredo Pareto:
The Karl Marx of Fascism

Vilfredo Pareto, 1848–1923

7,009 words

Italian contributions to political and social thought are singularly impressive and, in fact, few nations are as favored with a tradition as long and as rich. One need only mention names such as Dante, Machiavelli, and Vico to appreciate the importance of Italy in this respect. In the twentieth century too, the contributions made by Italians are of great significance. Read more …

The Thelemic State

The form of Thelemic government is vaguely outlined in Liber Legis, suggesting the type of corporatism: “Let it be the state of manyhood bound and loathing: thou has no right but to do what thou will.”[1] Contrary to the anarchistic or nihilistic interpretation often given Thelema’s “do what thou wilt,” Crowley defined the Thelemic state as a free association for the common good.
