“In a time of universal triviality, seeking answers to the great questions of existence is . . . a revolutionary course of action. Those who have the humility to ask the question ‘Could it be us who have gone astray?’ are the true radicals.”–Andrew Lynn Read more …

Principalities & Powers, Part Three:
The Jungle of Empire

President Obama and Mark Zuckerberg, two leading figureheads of the globalist elite.

2,287 words

One of the redeeming features of imperialism is that it makes for great adventure stories. The works of H. Rider Haggard and Rudyard Kipling and the literature of the American West from James Fenimore Cooper to Louis L’Amour would not have been possible without the empires and imperial problems that provide the setting for their tales. The reason for the relationship ought to be fairly obvious.

Empires offer all the standard fare of blood, guts, intrigue, romance, and action: villains plotting to overthrow civilization, heroes striving to protect it; Read more …

Sortition in Modern Republican Theory

niccolo-machiavelli_uffizi2,219 words

Republican theorists of the 16th and 17th centuries recognized the merits of sortition, and included the practice when drawing up their ideal constitutions.

Niccolò Machiavelli

In 1520, Niccolò Machiavelli, in a proposal to the Medicis, published the Discourse on the Government of Florence, arguing that none of the previous governments worked for the common good and merely represented the interests of one faction at the expense of the other, be they Medici, aristocratic, or popolo.

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 …

Макіавеллі як європеєць

695 words

English original here

Навіть його власне ім’я повернулось проти нього. І дійсно, навряд чи хто втішатиметься епітетом «макіавеліанський». В уяві одразу вимальовуються тіні підступної та зрадливої жорстокості. Та все ж до написання свого найвідомішого та найскандальнішого твору – «Державець» Макіавеллі привела турбота про його батьківщину – Італію. Read more …

Machiavelli the European

Niccolò Machiavelli by Santi di Tito: "I prefer my fatherland to my own soul."

Niccolò Machiavelli by Santi di Tito: “I prefer my fatherland to my own soul.”

838 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Even his own name has been turned against him. Indeed it is hardly flattering to be described as “Machiavellian.” One immediately envisions a hint of cunning and treacherous violence. And yet what led Machiavelli to write his most famous and scandalous work, The Prince, was concern for his fatherland, Italy. Read more …

Liberalism

4,627 words

I.

Liberalism is a most important by-product of Rationalism, and its origins and ideology must be clearly shown.

The “Enlightenment” period of Western history which . . . set in after the Counter-Reformation laid more and more stress on intellect, reason and logic as it developed. Read more …
