If I could choose to be anyone from the twentieth century, I would not hesitate for a moment to pick Ernst Jünger. The man did just about everything it was possible to do in his time, and stretched the limits of what one individual can accomplish in a lifetime to their breaking point. Read more …

Muž dvacátého století: vzpomínáme na Ernsta Jüngera (1895-1998)

2,860 slov

English original here; Hungarian translation here

Kdybych mohl být kýmkoliv z dvacátého století, ani na vteřinu bych neváhal s volbou Ernsta Jüngera. Tento muž totiž ve svém vymezeném čase vyzkoušel takřka všechno a napnul hranice toho, čeho může jednotlivec v životě dosáhnout, až na úplné maximum. Jeho nesmírně dlouhý život (zemřel měsíc před svými 103. narozeninami) překlenul Kaiserreich, německou revoluci, Výmarskou republiku, Třetí říši, Spolkovou republiku Německo a konečně v poslední dekádě jeho života také sjednocené Německo – a v každém z těchto období aktivně působil.

Poznámky k nihilismu

3,758 slov

English original here

Často se říká, že nihilismus je jednou z nejvýraznějších charakteristik naší moderní doby – co to ale vlastně nihilismus vůbec je? Nihilismus znamená cosi jako „smrt“ Boha, popření objektivního smyslu a hodnot, rozostření morálních kategorií a hierarchií, rozklad společného světa na individuální náhledy i společné kultury do subjektivních „osobních preferencí.“ Read more …

Fascism, Futurism, & Aviation

1,663 words

Fernando Esposito
Fascism, Aviation and Mythical Modernity
Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2015

The British political theorist Roger Griffin has argued that the defining characteristic of fascist movements is a central myth of national rebirth, or palingenetic ultranationalism. His study of fascism (The Nature of Fascism) sparked controversy upon its publication because it diverged from the consensus at the time that fascist movements were purely reactionary and conservative in character; Read more …

Masterpieces of Aryan Literature 2
Ernst Jünger’s The Glass Bees

992 words

Ernst Jünger (1895–1998) was a prominent member of the German nationalist Conservative Revolutionary movement of the 1920s that was opposed to the feckless Weimar Republic. The son of a wealthy chemist, Jünger rejected the staid bourgeois world of his upbringing and instead sought adventure wherever he could find it. Running away from home and joining the French Foreign Legion while a minor, Jünger was sent to Algeria and Morocco. Through the intercession of his father, Jünger got out of the Legion in time to join the German Army at the outbreak of World War I.  Read more …

Férfi a XX. században
Ernst Jünger emlékezete 1895. március 29. — 1998. február 17.

2,721 words

English original; Czech version

Ha választhatnék, hogy melyik XX. századi személyiség életét éljem újra, nem kellene sokáig gondolkodnom. Ernst Jünger szinte mindent átélt, amit a században lehetett, és elment a végső határig abban, amit valaki egy földi pályafutás során elérhet. Egy hónappal a százharmadik születésnapja előtt halt meg – elképesztően hosszú életkora átfogta a Német Császárság, az I. világháború utáni német forradalom, a Weimari Köztársaság, a Harmadik Birodalom és a Német Szövetségi Köztársaság korszakát. Végül élete utolsó évtizedében láthatta az újraegyesült Németországot is, és mindvégig aktívan tevékenykedett.

If I could choose to be anyone from the twentieth century, I would not hesitate for a moment to pick Ernst Jünger. The man did just about everything it was possible to do in his time, and stretched the limits of what one individual can accomplish in a lifetime to their breaking point. His incredible lifespan alone (he died a month shy of his 103rd birthday) spanned the Kaiserreich, the German Revolution, the Weimar Republic, the Third Reich, the Federal Republic of Germany, and finally, reunited Germany in his final decade – Read more …

The French Lobby Rises:
Anti-French Rapper Purged from Verdun Commemoration

1,325 words

VerdunThe degeneration of European Man is visibly evident in the state of our so-called elites. They too have grown terribly soft, culturally ignorant, and ultimately wholly without honor. One sign of this is the disgusting decline in the intellectual and moral quality of official culture, including commemorations of major events.

Consider the following. In 1979, the authorities invited no less a figure than the German writer Ernst Jünger to commemorate that titanic fratricidal struggle which was the Battle of Verdun. Read more …

3,263 words

English original here

The Gnostic NihilistOn dit souvent que le nihilisme est l’une des principales caractéristiques de l’âge moderne, mais qu’est-ce que le nihilisme ? Le nihilisme signifie quelque chose comme la « mort » de Dieu, la négation du sens et de la valeur objectifs, l’effacement des distinctions morales et des hiérarchies, la dissolution d’un monde commun en perspectives individuelles, et la dissolution d’une culture commune en « préférences données » subjectives.  Read more …

The Gnostic Nihilist

Frecuentemente se dice que el nihilismo es una de las características de la era moderna pero, ¿qué es el nihilismo? El nihilismo significa algo así como la “muerte” de Dios, la negación del valor y del significado objetivo, la borradura de las distinciones morales y jerárquicas, la disolución de un mundo común a las perspectivas individuales, y la disolución de una cultura común a las “preferencias dadas” subjetivas.  Read more …

The Gnostic NihilistIt is often said that nihilism is one of the leading characteristics of the modern age, but what is nihilism? Nihilism means something like the “death” of God, the denial of objective meaning and value, the erasure of moral distinctions and hierarchies, the dissolution of a common world into individual perspectives, and the dissolution of a common culture into subjective “given preferences.”  Read more …

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 …

Father Charles E. Coughlin: Social Justice Warrior

Czech translation here

Today, the Right finds itself in a revolutionary situation. All of the mechanisms of power have been seized by a hostile elite. The economy, government, and academia are solely in the hands of corporate internationalists or full scale multiculturalists.

In its economic dimension, capital is aligned against the interests of nationalists, the traditionally religious, and the workers. Read more …

Mircea Eliade’s The Portugal Journal, trans. Mac Linscott Ricketts (Albany, N.Y.: SUNY Press, 2010) covers the years 1941 to 1945 when Eliade was a Romanian diplomat in Portugal. It is thus a prequel to Eliade’s four-volume Journal (Vol. 1: 1945–1955, Vol. 2: 1957–1969, Vol. 3: 1970–1978, and Vol. 4: 1979–1985), which begins with his arrival in Paris in September of 1945 and continues for the rest of his life.

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 …
