Tribute to Dominique Venner

VennerMemorial1,429 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Translations: CzechGreek

The reasons for living and the reasons for dying are often the same. This was definitely the case for Dominique Venner, whose gesture aimed at bringing his life and death into deep accord. He said he chose to die in the way that was the most honorable in certain circumstances, particularly when words become powerless to describe, to express what we feel. Read more …

Tribute to Dominique Venner

dominique-venner-crop625 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Translations Czech, Greek, Spanish

Dominique Venner’s suicide on May 21 at Notre Dame: Marine Le Pen bowed to this gesture of awakening consciousness, which may seem surprising, but it is to her credit. A topless representative of Femen, a group of feminist buffoons, tried to smear his memory the next day, mimicking his suicide in the choir of Notre Dame. Read more …

Céline’s Journey to the End of the Night

Celine81,654 words

Translated by Greg Johnson*

Louis-Ferdinand Céline’s extraordinary “pamphlets” — Trifles for a Massacre, The School for Cadavers, A Fine Mess — may have caused many admirers to forget that our recently-minted prophet first surfaced in the literary world as a novelist. It seems to me that Journey to the End of the Night — illustrious though it may be, and as unforgettable as the arrival of a cyclone — is still neglected in accounting for the makeup of the prodigious artistic phenomenon that is Céline.

Machiavelli & the Conservative Revolution

machiavellistatue839 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Borne along by the French Spring, the Conservative Revolution is in fashion. One of its most brilliant theorists deserves to be remembered, even if his name has long been maligned. Indeed it is scarcely flattering to be described as “Machiavellesque” if not “Machiavellian.” It can be seen as an aspersion of cynicism and deceit.  Read more …

Love Nature, Love Life

Umbrellas421 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Greek translation here

Not for an instant do I forget the struggles of our time. Not for an instant do I forget the struggles of the past that made us who we are. Not for an instant do I forget that to exist is not just to dedicate and devote oneself but also to fight. Nor do I forget that life has intense moments and calm moments, joys and cruelties.

Letter to My Friends on Identity & Sovereignty

Charlemagne by Albrecht Dürer, circa 1512

997 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

When you belong to a nation associated with St. Louis, Philip the Fair, Richelieu, Louis XIV, or Napoleon, a country which in the late 17th century, was called the “great nation” (the most populated and most dangerous), it is cruel to recount the history of repeated setbacks: the aftermath of Waterloo, 1870, 1940, and again in 1962, the ignominious end of French rule in Algeria. A certain pride necessarily suffers. Read more …

Re-Reading Rousseau

Maurice Quentin de La Tour, “Portrait of Jean-Jacques Rousseau” (1712–1778), pastel on paper, 1753

10,607 words

Translated by Greg Johnson*

Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712–1778) is a rather curious case in the history of ideas. After two centuries, he is still the object of truly passionate opinions (you either love him or you hate him), and few authors have given rise to as many contradictory interpretations. He is commonly seen as an inspiration for the French Revolution, but also as an influence on German nationalism. Read more …

Current events sometimes offer striking examples of the unforeseen. Last spring, we were all shocked by images of one of the great and powerful looking despondent, his wrists shackled, having suddenly fallen from his perch of impunity.
