Joséphin Péladan & the Occult War Against Liberal Decadence

Joséphin Péladan, as painted by Marcellin Desboutin in 1891

1,665 words

France gave the world the French Revolution in 1789. It was an epochal event, albeit a symptom of a line of cultural decadence that gave birth to both liberalism and Communism, and which remains a pall over the entire West and wherever the West reaches. It is ironic that those who were condemned as “collaborators” in France during and after the Second World War were for years prior to the war the most vociferous in their lamentations regarding the decadence of the French Republic.

René Guénon & Integral Traditionalism

3,008 words

Rene-guenon-1925

Translated by G. A. Malvicini

Elsewhere (in La Destra, in May 1972), we have discussed the necessary relationship of an authentic, non-makeshift Right with the concept of Tradition. In the sense discussed there, references to authors with a traditional orientation may be useful in dealing with certain complex problems. Here, however, we wish to provide an account of the ideas of René Guénon (1886-1951), who was regarded as the proponent of “integral Traditionalism.”  Read more …

A Brief Illustrated History of Romanians

I recently came across a very pleasant read in the form of Neagu Djuvara’s A Brief Illustrated History of Romanians.[1] The book is in fact a series of transcribed lectures meant to introduce young Romanians (or, in translation, the curious foreigner) to the broad sweep of Romanian history.

Lessingovo ideálne konzervatívne slobodomurárstvo

Gotthold_Ephraim_Lessing_Kunstsammlung_Uni_Leipzig2,544 words

English original here

Gotthold Ephraim Lessing (1729–1781) bol nemecký filozof, dramatik a esejista. A bol tiež slobodomurár. Dňa 14. októbra 1771 bol zasvätený do slobodomurárstva v lóži Troch zlatých ruží v Hamburgu. Lessing mal očividne veľké nádeje v slobodomurárstvo, ale pomerne rýchlo ich stratil. V rokoch 1776-77 napísal dielo Ernst a Falk: Rozhovory pre slobodomurárov, ktoré bolo venované vojvodovi Ferdinandovi z Brunswicku, jednému z najvýznamnejších slobodomurárov.  Read more …

Translator’s Note:

The following extracts are translated from Dominique Venner’s Histoire de la Collaboration (Paris: Gérard Watelet/Pygmalion, 2000), 118-22. The title is editorial.

Before creating something new, to ensure that the old regime is genuinely laid low, one begins by driving out those who represent a potential counter-revolution, the risk of a lapse backwards. Read more …

Charlie Hebdo staff picture. Victims of the massacre are circled in red.

The staff of Charlie Hebdo was and is perhaps the most representative collection of culture-distorters and culture-retards ever assembled at one place. “They” are all there: communists, Grand Orient Freemasons, apostate Jews, each committed to a neo-Jacobin ridicule of everything traditional, every form of morality, any vestige of faith.

How Traditional Catholics Are Taking Back the Visual Culture of France, Part 1

Jeff Koons' Balloon Dog at Versailles, Property of François Pinault

Jeff Koons’ Balloon Dog at Versailles, Property of François Pinault

For most of my lifetime, the visual culture of France was not in dispute. It is not like in the United States, where nativity scenes were only recently ripped from the public square. Perhaps there was not a mutually accepted border, but for decades there has been a kind of line of control between all that was rooted in our culture and traditions and all garbage of the culture distorters.

“So check it out, and next time you go cruising down the street, take a look around. We are Franklin Franklin.” — Jeff Frankas

After reading Jeff Frankas’ excellent review of Small Apartments[1] I did what I usually do in such circumstances–head over to Amazon to see if there are any used copies in the $0.25 range (my current book budget). Once there, I discovered that it has already been made into a movie, a veritable “underground hit” with big stars like . . . Billy Crystal.  Read more …

Freemasons Against the Modern World

5,364 words

The Masons are the focus of intense curiosity and at times controversy in France. Our main weekly news magazines have cover stories on Masonry at least twice a year, typically their best-selling editions. France is probably the only country in the world in which lodge membership is growing at a steady pace and the average age of members is stable.

Freemasonry & the Occult War

1,569 words

Rembrandt, “The Philosopher in Meditation,” 1632

Julius Evola proposed that we in the West are in the midst of an intergenerational “occult war” that is the underlying cause of historical developments. Evola frequently explored exceedingly esoteric subjects. His proposition that the world is ruled by these shadowy forces is at once conspiratorial, mystical, and lacking in empirical verifiability. It doesn’t seem like something skeptics should take seriously.
