Liberalism is Suicide; Suicide is Liberalism

Anthony Bourdain and his daughter, Ariane, in 2008.

1,038 words

In his seminal work, Suicide of the West, James Burnham wrote:

Liberalism is the ideology of western suicide. When once this initial and final sentence is understood, everything about liberalism – the beliefs, emotions and values associated with it, the nature of its enchantment, its practical record, its future – falls into place. Read more …

The Real Victims in Manchester – The White Working Class

Manchester residents observing a moment of silence on Thursday.

1,180 words

What does it mean to be a Mancunian? Perhaps it’s as simple as being a resident or former resident of Manchester. Or perhaps it’s characterized by a particular type of identity, one that is often embodied in the numerous musicians who have come from there in recent decades. Read more …

Reading Marx Right:
A “Reactionist” Interpretation of The Communist Manifesto

Oswald Spengler, who attempted to fuse socialism with the Right.

5,190 words

There is much about The Communist Manifesto that is valid from a Rightist viewpoint – if analyzed from a reactionary perspective. One does not need to be a Marxist to accept that a dialectical interpretation of history is one of several methods by which history can be studied, albeit not in a reductionist sense, but in tandem with other methods such as, in particular, the cyclical morphology of Oswald Spengler,[1] the economic morphology of civilizations as per Brooks Adams,[2] the cultural vitalism of Yockey,[3] and the heroic vitalism of Carlyle.

The Co-option of the Left:
Its Fatal Misunderstanding of Marx

2,237 words

It’s obvious to anyone with eyes to see that the contemporary Left is spectacularly alienating its own natural constituency with its increasingly unfocused and incoherent forms of protest. Certainly, they are vocal in denouncing Trump as a fascist, and Brexit as some sort of ur-nationalism, Read more …

Alex Preda
Framing Finance: The Boundaries of Markets and Modern Capitalism
Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2009

How is it that formerly socially unacceptable activities become acceptable? One can point to numerous examples throughout history of seemingly sudden reversals or alterations of social norms. Some of these, of course, work in favor of the greater good (however defined), others clearly do not. Read more …

¿Por qué leer a Hegel? Notas sobre el final de la historia

HegelAbsolut4,486 words

English original here

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831) ha tenido una tremenda influencia en el mundo moderno, no sólo en la historia de las ideas, sino también en el reino de lo político. ¿Qué tan grande su influencia? Sin Hegel no habría habido Marx; sin Marx, no habría Lenin, Mao, Castro y Pol Pot. Ahora, reflexiona por un momento la diferencia que el Comunismo ha hecho en el mundo moderno, incluso en los países no comunistas, cuyas políticas fueron profundamente motivadas por el deseo de derrotar al Comunismo.  Read more …

English original here

Μετάφραση Α.Γ

Ο Γκέοργκ Βίλχελμ Φρίντριχ Χέγκελ (Georg Willhelm Friedrich Hegel, 1770-1831) άσκησε τεράστια επίδραση στο σύγχρονο κόσμο, όχι μόνο στην ιστορία των ιδεών αλλά και στο πεδίο της πολιτικής. Πόσο μεγάλη επίδραση; Χωρίς τον Χέγκελ δεν θα υπήρχε ο Μαρξ˙ χωρίς τον Μαρξ δεν θα υπήρχε ο Λένιν, ούτε ο Μάο, ο Κάστρο, ούτε ο Πολ Ποτ. Read more …

Why Read Hegel?
Notes on the “End of History”

HegelAbsolut4,295 words

Translations: Greek, Spanish

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831) has had a tremendous influence on the modern world, not only in the history of ideas, but in the political realm as well. How big an influence? Without Hegel, there would have been no Marx; without Marx, no Lenin, no Mao, no Castro, no Pol Pot. Now, reflect just a moment on the difference the Communism has made in the modern world, even in non-Communist countries, whose policies were deeply motivated by the desire to defeat Communism.  Read more …

Lecture delivered at the IV Encontro Internacional Evoliano, Sao Paulo, Brazil, September 10, 2014.

Francis Fukuyuma, the Japanese-American intellectual spokesman for the Jewish American Neoconservative movement, proclaimed in his 1992 book The End of History and the Last Man that liberal democracy was the final socio-political form since earlier alternatives such as Fascism and Communism had proven to be ideological failures, and liberty and equality had now been established as universal norms.  Read more …

Wagner Bicentennial Symposium  
Wagner as Metapolitical Revolutionary

richardwagnerpainting7,638 words

Karl Marx reserved a special place of contempt for those he termed “reactionists.” These comprised the alliance that was forming around his time among all classes of people, high-born and low, who aimed to return to a pre-capitalist society. These were the remnants of artisans, aristocrats, landowners, and pastors, who had seen the ravages of industrialism and money-ethics then unfolding. Read more …

Arthur Moeller van den Bruck:
The Man & His Thought

Arthur Moeller van den Bruck, April 23, 1876–May 30, 1925

4,461 words

Arthur Moeller van den Bruck was one of the most important, perhaps even the single most important, figure of what is known as the “Conservative Revolution” in early 20th century Germany. His influence on conservative German thought, despite its limitations, is deep and lasting, carrying on even into the present day. Indeed there may be some truth to the mystical declaration made by his wife: “In trying to account for the question who was Moeller van den Bruck, you are really addressing a question to Germany’s destiny.”[1] Read more …

Materialism

1,064 words

Ezra Pound’s Radio Broadcast #102, June 26, 1943

An idea is colored by what it is dipped in. Take for example the more or less Teutonic idea of materialism. Marx and Engels get to foolin’ ’round with Hegel’s philosophy, or something, and evolve or devolve what is called Marxian materialism, and it gets toted off into Russia. Read more …
