Jason Stanley’s How Fascism Works

6,322 words

Jason Stanley
How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us and Them
New York: Random House, 2018

Jason Stanley, a Jew who is a professor of philosophy at Yale, has recently published a book in which he seeks to explain how fascism takes root in society. With the conceptual complexity and intellectual depth of an MSNBC talk show, the author finds that–surprise!–the precursors to fascism are to be found everywhere in Trump’s America, Read more …

The Weltanschauung of Woodrow Wilson as Viewed from the Right

President Woodrow Wilson with French President Raymond Poincaré in Paris, December 1918.

2,528 words

As this article goes to print, an eventful century will nearly have passed since January 1919, when the belligerents of what was then called “The Great War” met in Paris to establish treaties between the belligerent nations and to try to create institutions that would sustain the peace. These delegates consisted of the heads of state of the great powers (France, the UK the US, Italy, and Japan), Read more …

On Ethnonationalism, Religion, & Common Sense

1,692 words

In the debate about Christianity and ethnonationalism it is too often forgotten that Christianity is a religion and not a political or cultural doctrine. Religion is coeval with man and its function is to mediate between the soul and the divine, Read more …

Melting Pot or Civil War, a Scathing Review

2,449 words

Reihan Salam
Melting Pot or Civil War? A Son of Immigrants Makes the Case Against Open Borders
New York: Sentinel, 2018

Conservatism without race realism is a hideous thing. We started getting unwelcome glimpses of this horror show during the 2016 elections when a fair number of supposedly reliable conservatives decided they preferred the arch-liberal Hillary Clinton to the solidly-conservative Donald Trump.

Bernardo Bertolucci & The Conformist

1,331 words

Reputation-wise, Bernardo Bertolucci (1941-2018) missed a good bet by not dying a quarter-century ago, rather than lingering on for years of illness and diminishing fame. Orson Welles spent his lengthy dotage introducing himself to new generations as a pitchman for Gallo Wine, and that seemed pretty sad, but at least people knew who he was. When the equally talented Bertolucci died on November 26 he had almost no public profile at all.  Read more …

Eraserhead:
A Gnostic Anti-Sex Film

3,362 words

David Lynch’s first movie Eraserhead (1977) combines surrealism, low-budget horror, and black comedy. It rapidly became a staple of the midnight movie circuit and provided endless fodder for coffee-house intellectuals and academic film theorists.

Eraserhead is quite simply a gnostic anti-sex film. The film is premised on a gnostic dualism, which holds that the material world—including sex and childbearing—is fundamentally evil, Read more …

A Globalist Struggles to Explain the Failure of Globalism

1,483 words

Ian Bremmer
Us vs. Them: The Failure of Globalism
Portfolio/Penguin, 2018

Glancing through the blurbs on the back of Ian Bremmer’s new bestseller, one finds the Secretary-General of the UN, a managing director of the IMF, a co-chairman of the European Council on Foreign Relations, the President of the International Rescue Committee, and Larry Summers: not a lineup one would expect to find endorsing a bold challenge to conventional thinking.

Children of Men

830 words

Mexican director Alfonso Cuarón’s Children of Men (2006) is loosely based on P. D. James’ 1992 novel of the same name. Cuarón is solidly Leftist, but Children of Men seems more and more like a Right-wing vision of dystopia with each passing year. (Cuarón’s 2001 film Y Tu Mamá También, is basically Marxist propaganda and soft-core porn, but his 2013 hit Gravity could be seen as an argument against putting women in the military or space, although I don’t think this was the director’s intention.)  Read more …

Overcomer to the End:
The Return of Brother Stair

Brother Stair

1,905 words

After spending a restless night after reading the latest productions of the Dissident Right, I sought solace, at around 4 AM, in one of my favorite entertainments: radio preachers. I was listening to some Jamaican rabbiting on about how important the support of his Brooklyn ministry was when there was a burst of static, a few moments of fuzziness, and then – suddenly – the unmistakable voice and teachings of Brother Stair!

Musica Deo Sacra

Salisbury Cathedral, Dark into Light

1,656 words

Evensong drifted in wisps of blue incense down the shadow-columned nave as I cast my eye over the gold Garter Banner fluttering overhead. My attention was drawn to the apsidal chancel and fourteenth-century vaults, with their red and turquoise fronds that stare benignly down on the heads of the Schola Cantorum choristers, their angelic voices echoing off the chambered underbelly of the Romanesque cross tower. A mass of mesmeric candles flickered over the polished, bone-like surface of the reliquaries in the chantry chapels of the DeSpensers, Beauchamps, and de Clares.

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1)

Homosexuality not conducive to creativity

Norman rejected the faddish view that homosexuality is associated with the creative individual. He regarded homosexuality as “destructive” to the creative impulse, which is based on unisexuality. He stated that the male homosexual is dominated by a split of either all-male or all-female:

Christianity & Nationalism:
A Cautionary Tale

Charles Maurras

1,412 words

The arguments over identitarians should embrace or abandon Christianity is a question that still remains unresolved within the broader movement.

Last week, Quintilian entered the fray and offered a reasoned argument for why white nationalists should embrace Christianity. The writer believes that white nationalists have fallen prey to the corrupted image of modern Christianity and fail to see the glory of the traditional faith.  Read more …

The Moral Superiority of White Nationalism

5,202 words

Over the past year, I have spoken with—and thought about—a particular demographic that should be open to White Nationalism, but which largely has not been: conservative Gen-Xers. They tend to reject White Nationalism as being un-American, as immoral, and most prominently, as comprised of losers and failures.
