The Weltanschauung of Woodrow Wilson as Viewed from the Right

President Woodrow Wilson with French President Raymond Poincaré in Paris, December 1918.

2,522 words

As this article goes to print, an eventful century will nearly have passed since January 1919, when the belligerents of what was then called “The Great War” met in Paris to establish treaties between the belligerent nations and to try to create institutions that would sustain the peace. These delegates consisted of the heads of state of the great powers (France, the UK, the US, Italy, and Japan), 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.

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 …
