What Would Evola Do?

5,765 words

The follow is the text of the talk that Counter-Currents editor John Morgan delivered to The New York Forum on May 20, 2017.

Tonight I thought I’d talk about Julius Evola, since yesterday (May 19) was his 119th birthday, and I have overseen the publication of many of Evola’s texts in English. Read more …

Europe & Europa

2,859 words

The embattled vote on Catalan independence in Spain has turned the thoughts of many to the spiny problem of peoples and fatherlands. This is a subject, of course, which frequently touches our discourses in the New Right. It is fitting this should be so, given the weight we tend to put on “identity,” “sovereignty,” “nationhood,” “peoples,” and like concepts.  Read more …

Ezra Pound’s Jefferson and/or Mussolini

1,971 words

Ezra Pound
Jefferson and/or Mussolini
London: Stanley Nott Ltd., 1935

Ezra Pound liked his books charged with meaning. “Man reading should be man intensely alive. The book should be a ball of light in one’s hand,” he wrote in his Guide to Kulchur, another one of his, shall we say, B-Sides.

The White Race as Global Proletariat

2,070 words

nexttimewefightOne of the intellectual developments responsible for transforming numerous Italian Leftists into Fascists was the notion of a nation-based proletariat. Realizing that a political consciousness based on class alone was a failing strategy for national rejuvenation, the men who would set the ideological groundwork for Fascism began to understand that more was needed to unite those nations oppressed by the global power hierarchy.

Sound as a Pound (Italian)

12226283_10206590828304314_1627461731_n2,730 words

English original here

Uno dei movimenti politici più interessanti e originali apparsi in Italia negli ultimi anni è CasaPound Italia (CPI). Secondo il punto di vista dal quale li si guarda nel vecchio spettro politico, il gruppo da una parte rinnova l’estremismo di destra per le giovani generazioni, dall’altra sconfigge semplicemente l’estrema sinistra al suo proprio gioco “rivoluzionario” mantenendo nello stesso tempo il perseguimento di obiettivi di tendenza più tradizionali, come il legame con la famiglia, la comunità e la nazione, contro le forze di una globalizzazione senza limiti.  Read more …

Sound as a Pound

12226283_10206590828304314_1627461731_n2,652 words

Italian translation here

One of the most interesting and original political movements to arise in Italy in recent years is CasaPound Italia (CPI). Depending on which point you view them from in the old political spectrum, the group either repackages Right-wing extremism for a younger generation or simply beats the hard Left at its own “revolutionary” game but in pursuit of traditionalist mainstream objectives like securing family, community, and nation against the forces of unrestricted globalism.

Editor’s Note:

The following text is the transcript by V. S. of Jonathan Bowden’s New Right lecture in London on January 21, 2012. I want to thank Michèle Renouf for making the recording available.   

Gabriele D’Annunzio had basically two careers, one of which was as a writer and literati and the other was as a politician and a national figure. If you look him up on Wikipedia there’s a strange incident which occurred in 1922 Read more …

Italian Fascism

italy-kissing-the-flag1,846 words

Translated by G. A. Malvicini

On March 23, 1919, in Milan, Mussolini founded the “Fasci di combattimento” with a program that was both national and social. The first “Fasci” — made up of veterans, ex-socialists and revolutionary syndicalists — evolved slowly towards radical rightist positions until the end of 1920. From then on, tired of two years of socialist violence which had culminated in the occupation of factories, growing masses of the lower-middle and middle classes began to join “Fascism.” Read more …

FOTO ezraThe body of this ms. was written and left my hands in February 1933. 40 publishers have refused it. No typescript of mine has been read by so many people or brought me a more interesting correspondence. It is here printed verbatim, unaltered. I had not seen the ms. from the time it left Rapallo till it returned here with the galley proof. It is printed as record of what I saw in February 1933. The September preface (1933) indicated a flutter of hope, that has grown steadily more fluttery and less hopeful.  Read more …
