A Conversation with Ricardo Duchesne, Part 2

An idol of the Celtic god of thunder, Taranis, a common deity in the Indo-European pantheons

2,839 words

Part 2 of 3 (Part 1 here, Part 3 here)

Grégoire Canlorbe: Western civilization, originating from the Indo-European heroic ethos, turned out to be both the most creative and Faustian civilization and the most war-ridden and war-dominated one. Islamic civilization has been equally militaristic and expansionist; yet it quickly became frozen and hostile towards innovation and individual genius, despite the fact that praising Muhammad’s heroic lifetime has permeated Islamic societies to this day. How do you explain this duality?

The Lost City of Z

1,127 words

The Lost City of Z is based on a recent book of the same name by David Grann about the British explorer Percy Fawcett’s quest for a legendary ancient lost city in the Amazon rainforest. Its premise brings to mind epic films like Lawrence of Arabia or Apocalypse Now (indeed several scenes are uncannily reminiscent of Coppola). However ultimately The Lost City of Z lacks the grandeur of the former and the hallucinatory intensity of the latter. It is also burdened by the clutter of several secondary themes (romance/family, war, colonialism/racism, classism, sexism) and the ham-fisted insertion of modern liberal talking points into the plot.  Read more …

Unshackling the Shekel:
or, How I Learned to Fight

2,283 words

In my previous essay, “Ditching the Black Pill: Or, How I Freed Myself from the Shekel,” I explored why nihilism isn’t a constructive strategy or mindset for the purposes of our movement. Nihilism, fatalism, and any other predeterministic philosophy runs counter to the European soul, and as such is a tool for our enemies to exploit. This essay will be exploring racial hygiene, with a specific emphasis placed upon what is healthy for our people and what is not. Read more …

Ditching the Black Pill;
Or, How I Freed Myself from the Shekel

869 words

As of late, many in the movement have been both advocating and adopting the deleterious philosophy of the so-called “Black Pill.” Those held in thrall by the nihilistic tendrils of the “Black Pill” ideology posit that — quite bluntly — hope is futile, change a fleeting mirage, and White racial preservation improbable.

What is Odinism?, Part III:
The Odinic & the Faustian

Editor’s Note:

This is part three of a four-part essay that first appeared in Tyr: Myth, Culture, Tradition, vol. 4.

Let us return to the story of Mímir’s Well, and Odin’s sacrifice of an eye. What does this loss signify? As Wagner recognized, it means that while Odin gains wisdom, he also becomes half blind.[1] On a literal level, this is obvious. Read more …

The Hegemony of the White Races

1,514 words

AN00440360_001_lTrans. anonymous

The problem of the origins, the foundations and the future destiny of the global hegemony of the white race is, of course, among the most exciting issues of today. We have in our hands a newly published large volume by Wahrhold Drascher, who, thoroughly knowledgeable, comprehensively informed and with an acute historical sense, takes on precisely this subject (Die Vorherrschaft der weissen Rasse, Berlin, 1936).

Oswald Spengler & the Faustian Soul of the West, Part 1

3,526 words

Faust im Studierzimmer Georg Friedrich Kersting

Georg Friedrich Kersting, “Faust in his Study”

Part 1 of 2

If I had to choose one word to identify the uniqueness of the West it would be “Faustian.” This is the word Oswald Spengler used to designate the “soul” of the West. He believed that Western civilization was driven by an unusually dynamic and expansive psyche. The “prime-symbol” of this Faustian soul was “pure and limitless space.” This soul had a “tendency towards the infinite,” a tendency most acutely expressed in modern mathematics.  Read more …

2,847 words

French translation here

From the nineteenth century through the 1960s and ’70s, World History books did recognize the varying accomplishments of all civilizations in the world, but most authors and teachers took for granted the fact that Europeans deserved more attention particularly in view of their irrefutable influence on the rest of the world after their discovery of the Americas, development of modern science and global spread of modern technology.

The European New Right & its Animus against Western Civ

MichaelandDragon3,389 words

My knowledge of the European New Right (ENR) is very scarce, no more than a few short articles and three books: Guillaume Faye’s Why We Fight, Alexander Dugin’s Fourth Political Theory, and Pierre Krebs’ Fighting for the Essence, Western Ethnosuicide or European Renaissance? I found Faye’s metapolitical dictionary substantively insightful and Dugin’s dissection of liberalism penetrating.

Contre l’Homme Faustien

Mais le sacrilège du Faustien et son désastre surpassent tous les autres, allant au-delà de tout ce qu’Eschyle ou Shakespeare ont jamais imaginé. La créature se dresse contre son créateur. De la même façon que le microcosme Homme se révolta un jour contre la Nature, ainsi fait aujourd’hui le microcosme Machine se révoltant contre l’Homme Nordique. Le maître du Monde est en train de devenir l’esclave de la Machine qui le force – et nous force tous, que nous en soyons conscients ou pas – à en passer par où elle veut.

Gelassenheit

We can say that the plot of the Ring is simply this: Western man, in the person of Wotan, finally awakens to the destructiveness of his thumotic nature, and wills his own end. (See my review of Duchesne’s Uniqueness of Western Civilization for a discussion of how Western man is preeminently thumotic man.) Read more …

If Wotan is the main character of the Ring, Siegfried is its hero. However, in dealing with the character of Siegfried we do not depart from our discussion of Wotan at all. This is because Siegfried, like many of the other characters in the Ring, is a kind of hypostatization of an aspect of Wotan himself.  Read more …

The story of the Ring involves four ages, similar to those taught in Tradition.

The Age of Titans is the period represented by figures somehow more primordial than the gods: Erda, the Norns, and possibly the Rhine daughters. Events in this age are not depicted in the Ring; they are merely referred to (primarily in Götterdämmerung).
