March 1917 in June 2020

3,515 words

A recurring theme in Book 1 of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s March 1917 — or Node III of his vast Red Wheel opus — is “this could have been prevented.” Of course, this refers to the first successful socialist revolution in Russia, which took place in March 1917 (or in February, according to the Julian Calendar). In March 1917, Solzhenitsyn offers a wealth of perspective on the fateful events in Petrograd which led to the abdication of the Tsar and the monarchy’s ultimate replacement with the Provisional Government.

Our Boy Bezmenov:
Soviet Subversion Strategies in America

Yuri Bezmenov during his interview with Edward Griffin.

4,870 words

A long campaign of demoralization leads to destabilization. Then some crisis conveniently emerges, which, upon close examination, appears aimed at bringing about a Leftist overthrow. Does that seem familiar? Since the public has been through two largely manufactured crises in the first half of 2020, maybe it even sounds like it’s been ripped from the headlines! Actually, all this is much older than one might expect. Read more …

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Lenin in Zürich

2,691 words

In 1975, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn excised the several Lenin chapters from his massive and unfinished Red Wheel epic and compiled them into one volume entitled Lenin in Zürich. At the time, only one of these chapters had been published — in Knot I of the Red Wheel, known as August 1914 — while the remaining chapters would still have to languish in the author’s desk drawer for decades before appearing as part of The Red Wheel proper (November 1916 and March 1917, specifically).

The Bernie Bro Question, Part 2:
Rebels Without a Candidate

3,360 words

Some in the Dissident Right have pined for and predicted a mass defection from the materialist Left to the Dissident Right.

Of course, people have been talking about a theoretical Bernie Bro-to-Dissident Right pipeline since at least 2016, if not earlier. Read more …

The Anti-Revolutionary Manifesto

1,290 words

Translated by Riki Rei

Translator’s note: Mishima penned this essay titled Anti-Revolutionary Manifesto in early 1969, almost two years before his suicide, at the peak of leftist protests, demonstrations, and riots, which were sweeping not just across Japan, but throughout the entire Western world. Read more …

George Racey Jordan & Richard L. Stokes
From Major Jordan’s Diaries
New York: Harcourt Brace & Co., 1952

Increasing numbers of the public realize the government doesn’t always work the way their civics classes taught. A government is only as good as the politicians and bureaucrats running it. There’s been much discussion about topics such as the Deep State, the globalist oligarchy, Read more …

Cultural Marxist vs. Material Marxist, Part 2:
Is Capitalism the Real Racist?

2,696 words

There are reasons why the neoliberal establishment hates Bernie Sanders so much, and it’s not just because he’s a threat to their donors’ stock portfolios. Class-based material Marxism — once a pillar of Leftist thought — is not only incompatible with but also heretical to the neoliberal worldview and agenda. Read more …

Nazis vs. Commies

2,235 words

A couple weeks ago, an Ace of Spades co-blogger called OregonMuse wrote something profound on Ace’s Sunday Morning Book Thread. His statement has meaning beyond its literal interpretation and resonates through much of our political discourse on the Right. Here’s what he said:

The world is not going to be set right until people realize that, as bad as nazis are, commies are actually worse. Read more …

On Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Warning to the West

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

3,604 words

And all of us are standing on the brink of a great historical cataclysm, a flood that swallows up civilization and changes whole epochs.
–Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, BBC speech, March 24, 1976

In the summer of 1975, the recently-exiled Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn delivered three speeches in the United States: two to labor organizations and one to Congress. The following year, he was interviewed by the BBC and then delivered a speech over British radio. Read more …

Nineteen Eighty-Four Revisited, Part II:
What Orwell Can Still Teach Us

6,674 words

Part 1 (Part 2 here)

1. Introduction

Everyone thinks he knows what’s in Nineteen Eighty-Four. Is there really anything left to say? It’s as if George Orwell’s masterpiece has been sucked dry. At least, that’s what I thought until I recently reread it, for the first time in over thirty years. Read more …

June 8th is the 70th anniversary of the publication of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four.

The Controversy of Zion

Douglas Reed

3,575 words

The long-awaited prosperity promised by the Industrial Revolution finally arrived with the Edwardian Age of productive leisure. But, alas, it was not to be for long. The freedom it granted was fleeting. Today, as the fabled American middle class fades like the morning dew, those who are running just to stand still, as the Red Queen prophesied, are the lucky ones.

Lopsided money distribution was one of the factors which encouraged C. H. Douglas to devise the yet-to-be implemented Social Credit Dividend, which was to be based on the inheritance of natural resources and inventions from previous generations. Read more …

The Social Justice Warrior as Nascent Totalitarian

632 words

Memetic discourse is historically unique, but there is a striking similarity between Social Justice Warrior (SJW) discourse and the totalitarian discourse of past eras. Political rhetoric in totalitarian societies is narrow and circular; everything that is said is just a reiteration of what’s already been said. Any original or nuanced thought in a totalitarian society is crushed or weeded out. Read more …

Father Coughlin, Ralph Ingersoll, & the War Against Social Justice

Father Coughlin

1,815 words

The public career of Rev. Charles E. Coughlin during the 1930s and early ‘40s is massively documented. Newsreels, publications, speeches, and broadcast recordings are all at your fingertips online. Yet the historical significance of this Canadian-American prelate (1891-1979) is maddeningly elusive. You may have read that he was an immensely popular but controversial “radio priest” with a decidedly populist-nationalist bent, or that he published a weekly magazine called Social Justice (1936-1942), Read more …

Of the many long-lost texts by Francis Parker Yockey that will be included in our upcoming anthology of Yockey’s shorter writings, The World in Flames, one is a four-part essay entitled “Brotherhood.” Kerry Bolton and I had to search far and wide to find a complete copy of the text, as we announced during our search earlier this year, but find it we finally did, and we offer it here as a prelude to our patient readers who have been awaiting the finalized volume. The Preface is by Dr. Bolton. — John Morgan Read more …

Marxism vs. National Socialism:
The Struggle Between Race & Internationalism

4,071 words

“The conflict which is going on regarding the true view of man and the world will be brought to an issue rather by men of the prophetic type than by dogmatists and philosophers.”
–Heinrich Weinel, 1903[1]

Throughout Mein Kampf, Hitler describes what he calls a world-concept, or Weltanschauung. In its usual sense, the word basically means worldview, but when Hitler uses the term it means an all-encompassing social, philosophical, and political idea that has become politically organized. Read more …

Remembering James Burnham

James Burnham

3,472 words

James Burnham died on July 28th, 1987—thirty-one years ago today, and just before the arrival of the current age. Born in a Catholic 1905, he quickly delved into Marxism in his college days. But Kapital couldn’t keep him, and he quit the party in 1940, and the next year wrote his first post-Marxist, and criminally underappreciated book, The Managerial Revolution. Read more …

Drink Leninade! You Have Nothing to Lose but Your Lives!

2,047 words

So I had an extremely curious moment recently when an acquaintance of mine showed me a bottle of soda she had found. It’s called Leninade, or, in Russian, ЛЕНИНАД, and features an image of our dear friend Vladimir Ilich chugging down a bottle of this cool, refreshing drink. Clearly a kitsch product relying on fuzzy Cold War memories to sell units, the concept of this soda is as tasteless as they come (as for the soda itself, keep reading). Read more …
