Ten Questions for Radical Environmentalist Derrick Jensen, Part I

Derrick Jensen

8,852 words

Part 1 of 2

Derrick Jensen, the hardcore and prolific Green activist, is easily one of the most interesting public intellectuals of our time. His willingness to take ideas to their logical end point – and make no apology for it – keeps him from being easily categorized. Read more …

Remembering Savitri Devi:
September 30, 1905–October 22, 1982

792 words

Savitri Devi was a philosopher, a religious thinker, and a tireless polemicist and activist for the causes of animal rights, European pagan revivalism, Hindu nationalism, German National Socialism, and — after the Second World War — pan-European racial nationalism.She also sought to found a religion, Esoteric Hitlerism, fusing National Socialism with the Traditionalism of René Guénon and Julius Evola. All told, she was one of the most extraordinary personalities of the 20th century. Read more …

JM: That brings me to another question. As you were saying, having a culture and civilization, I would argue, that is one of the better ones in the world, leads to the claim of “white supremacy” being flung around. Read more …

Being Bill McKibben

Bill McKibben

1,124 words

In 1989, young scientist Bill McKibben published the seminal climate change book, The End of Nature. It made him an instant star in the environmental sciences, and in the literary world as well.

Like it did with so many of my generation, the book had a profound effect on me. Among other things, I never forgot the analogy that if the earth was the size of a basketball, the depth of our atmosphere would be the equivalent of a coat of paint. The air we breath, the sky we see … it is not nearly so infinite as it seems.

Earth Day Special

350 words

Today is Earth Day, which has been an occasion to call for conservationism and environmental protection since it was first celebrated in America with bipartisan support in 1970, in response to the Santa Barbara oil spill of 1969. Although in recent decades, environmentalism has come to be identified with the political Left, taking stewardship of the Earth and seeking harmony in the relationship between man and nature has traditionally been an issue of the Right.

Profiles of Early Conservationists

Madison Grant

1,579 words

The early conservation movement in America was closely intertwined with support for scientific racism, eugenics, and restrictions on immigration. Both environmental conservation and eugenics were part and parcel of Progressivism. This article will provide brief biographies of five notable conservationists who were also race realists and eugenicists. Theodore Roosevelt is the most obvious example, but there were several others, including Madison Grant, Henry Fairfield Osborn, Charles M. Goethe, Joseph Le Conte, and David Starr Jordan.  Read more …

The New Natural Order

2,975 words

Towards a New European Palingenesis

Pentti Linkola

2,392 words

The hallmark of all revolutionary ideologies has been the forlorn attempt to create a “New Man.” Like Pygmalion, this “New Man” takes on the characteristics of whatever political ideology is currently en vogue. For want of a better, meta-historical term, the so-called “Right” has enjoyed marginally more success in this endeavor than other revolutionary movements. Read more …

Falling for Lies at Standing Rock

Heap big hokum at Standing Rock

Heap big hokum at Standing Rock

1,948 words

Just in time for Thanksgiving, leftists were given the perfect opportunity to up their “tying white guilt narratives to celebration of Thanksgiving” game: Native Americans are getting shot down in the streets because the white man is ruining their water and taking their land again! Yes, I am talking about the Standing Rock Sioux’s protests over the North Dakota Access Pipeline. To be clear, I think it’s entirely legitimate for us to have disagreements about energy policy, the relative environmental safety of the various methods of extracting and transporting oil, and so on and so forth.  Read more …

Biely nacionalizmus na západnom pobreží

Jack London

1,160 words

English original here

Pred pár rokmi sa istá mladá žena vydala na cestu z Alabamy až do Kalifornie, kde ju čakalo štúdium na univerzite. V tom čase jej strýko povedal príbeh o tom, ako vlastne vznikla Kalifornia. Ako iste viete, Amerika bola osídlená ľuďmi, ktorí sa rozhodli nevrátiť do Európy. Boli medzi nimi náboženskí fanatici, zlodeji koní, utečenci pred spravodlivosťou, hľadači zlata, či ničím neviazaní dobrodruhovia. Postupne títo ľudia osídlili východné pobrežie, ale nie všetci našli to, čo hľadali a preto sa rozhodli ísť ďalej smerom na západ a usadiť sa tam. Read more …
