Anarquismo de Derecha

Louis-Ferdinand Céline, 1984–1961

Louis-Ferdinand Céline, 1984–1961

868 words

English version here

Traducido por Francisco Albanese

El concepto de anarquismo derechista parece paradójico, de hecho, oximorónico, partiendo desde la suposición de que todos los puntos de vista políticos “derechistas” incluyen una evaluación particularmente alta del principio de orden… En efecto, el anarquismo de derecha ocurre sólo en circunstancias excepcionales, cuando la hasta ahora velada afinidad entre el anarquismo y el conservadurismo puede hacerse aparente.  Read more …

Úvahy o estetické a kulturní postavě dandyho, část 3

Nietzsche221,270 words

English version here

Čandalistické dekadentní figury

Existenciální krize, jež započala zhruba v polovině 18. století, vyústila v nihilismus, který Friedrich Nietzsche s odsudkem charakterizoval jako “vyčerpání života” a “znehodnocení všech hodnot”, projevující se vzrušeným neklidem a neschopností si užívat volného času. Právě tento neklid pak urychlil proces vyčerpání.  Read more …

Right-Wing Anarchism

Louis-Ferdinand Céline, 1984–1961

789 words

Translations Czech, Spanish

The concept of right-wing anarchism seems paradoxical, indeed oxymoronic, starting from the assumption that all “right-wing” political viewpoints include a particularly high evaluation of the principle of order. . . . In fact right-wing anarchism occurs only in exceptional circumstances, when the hitherto veiled affinity between anarchism and conservatism may become apparent.
