The Leopard

3,594 words

Luchino Visconti’s masterpiece is his 1963 historical epic The Leopard (Il Gattopardo, which actually refers to a smaller spotted wild cat, the serval, which is the heraldic animal of the princes of Salina in Sicily). Visconti’s film is a remarkably faithful adaptation of the 1958 novel of the same name by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. The Leopard became the best-selling Italian novel of all time, carrying off many critical laurels as well. Read more …

Schopenhauer & Hitler, Part 2
Schopenhauer’s Critique of Democracy

1,342 words

schopenhauer (1)Part 2 of 3

Schopenhauer’s political views were based on his extremely low assessment of the intellectual and moral quality of the great majority of mankind. One could not rule against the will of the people, therefore:

[T]he people is sovereign: But this sovereignty never comes of age and therefore has to remain under the permanent care of a guardian: Read more …

Our Napoleon

David_napoleon2,442 words

Napoleon has generally been viewed harshly by anti-liberal thinkers, with a few notable exceptions such as Nietzsche, Léon Bloy, and Francis Parker Yockey. A great deal of criticism has been leveled at him. He has been accused of being a mere petty dictator without any higher authority legitimizing him, an enemy of the Catholic Church, a liberal egalitarian who brought the violence of the French Revolution to the legitimate monarchies of Europe in his conquests.  Read more …

The Bourgeoisie, Protestantism, & The Protocols:
The Anti-Democratic Thought of Erik, Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn & Barone Giulio Cesare Evola

Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

7,182 words

Two books published in the early 1950s by two European aristocrats merit careful study by every contemporary European conservative since they express the authentic reactions of authentic noblemen to the revolutionary changes that Europe has for long suffered under the yoke of democracy and totalitarianism. These are Erik, Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn’s Liberty or Equality: The Challenge of Our Time (1952) and Barone Giulio Cesare Evola’s Gli Uomini e le rovine (Men Among the Ruins) (1953).  Read more …

Notes sur le populisme, l’élitisme, et la démocratie

Demosthenes

Démosthène

3,250 words

English original here

La démocratie est-elle un bon système du point de vue des Blancs racialement conscients ?

(1) Quand les Etats-Unis et la Corée du Nord se décrivent tous deux comme des démocraties, il est sain de conclure que « démocratie » signifie proche de tout et de rien. En ce qui me concerne, je définirai la démocratie comme l’idée que le pouvoir de prendre des décisions politiques doit résider dans les « nombreux »Read more …

Spain & the Failure of Reaction

King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain

King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain

2,180 words

Felipe VI reigns in Spain – but the only question is what will go first, the Spanish monarchy or Spain itself?

Felipe VI succeeded his father, King Juan Carlos I, who, as the English language media gleefully pointed out, was the successor of “dictator” Francisco Franco. Read more …

“The Leader of the Tribe” 
Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee

1,424 words

In 1977, the year of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee celebrations, Derek Jarman’s film Jubilee seemed to epitomize the seismic shift that punk had caused to the cultural landscape. Violent, nihilistic, and filthy, Jubilee raised the aesthetic potential of punk to a higher artistic form.

In the film, Elizabeth I is transported to the England of the late 1970s by the angel Aerial who is evoked by her astrologer-magician John Dee. Read more …

The King’s Speech is C-C-C-Crap

1,633 words

I suppose I’m just about the last person to see this film, which won Oscars in all major categories (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Original Screenplay). This is odd considering my fascination with the British Monarchy (see my essay “In Defense of Royalty”). However, film audiences today annoy me so much I usually wait for things to come out on DVD. So it was with great anticipation that I awaited the arrival of The King’s Speech from Netflix. And I do love a good film about the British Royal Family. I thoroughly enjoyed 2006’s The Queen with Helen Mirren. Read more …

In Defense of Royalty

1,753 words

In recent months, when I would think ruefully of the peculiar life I lead, I took some solace in the thought that soon my invitation to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding would arrive.

Alas it did not, and I am writing these words hours after the nuptials ended – apparently without a hitch (if we don’t count the fashion disaster that was Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie of York). Read more …

Juan Donoso Cortés

Juan Donoso Cortés, marqués de Valdegamas, 1809–1853

1,308 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Along with Count Joseph de Maistre and Viscount Louis de Bonald, Juan Donoso Cortés, the Marquis of Valdegamas, is part of the triad of the great counter-revolutionary thinkers of the 19th century whose message is still relevant today. In Italy, those aspects of Donoso Cortés’ teachings that are most important in our eyes are hardly known.
