On the Sky King’s Stoicism

Richard Russell

1,200 words

We judge people. Even when people express sincere suicidal feelings, we can’t help judging them. They may be exhibiting a lot of self-pity or emotional chaos, because the situation they’re in justifies it. Their circumstances may be such that we would feel exactly the same way if we were in their shoes. Still, when we see these behaviors, it nudges us towards assuming that these tendencies must be what led to them ending up in their predicament in the first place. It’s unfair, but it’s natural: This often causes us to sympathize less. Read more …

Sky King

Richard Russell

921 words

Around 9 PM Pacific Time on August 10th, a 29-year-old man named Richard Russell, stole a Q400 airplane from Seattle Tacoma International Airport and went for a joyride into the abyss. Two F-15 fighter planes were scrambled to follow Rich, who eventually crashed into a wooded area a little over an hour after takeoff, killing only himself.

White Lives Matter

Zachary Gromland

1,958 words

Early Thursday morning, I witnessed an immensely tragic and, truthfully, a surreally disturbing event on Facebook Live. A young racialist comrade, who went by the name Zachary Gromland (not his actual name), livestreamed himself as he needlessly ended his own life. I’m not usually one for watching these live feeds, and quite honestly, after this I’m in no rush to watch any more for the foreseeable future. I am, however, feeling the urge to put proverbial pen to paper and attempt to construct something positive from such a tragic, and ultimately meaningless, loss of life. Read more …

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 …

Dominique Venner & Death

A young Dominique Venner, at a protest against Algerian independence in paratrooper uniform, is on the left.

854 words

The following article was published in French on the Fragments sur les Temps Présents Website on May 23, 2018 to commemorate the fifth anniversary of Dominique Venner‘s public suicide. Jean-Yves Camus is a sociologist who specializes in the Right. It was translated by Jason Rogers.

On May 21, 2013, Dominique Venner put an end to his days by putting a gun in his mouth at Notre Dame de Paris. “Suicide by an opponent of marriage equality,” “suicide of an ex-OAS member”[1] . . . that’s how his death was announced. Read more …

The Immortal Death of Mishima

Grave_of_Yukio_Mishima

Mishima’s grave, Tama Cemetery in Fuchu, Tokyo

5,511 words

When Yukio Mishima arose on the morning of November 25th, 1970 he knew that it would be his last day on Earth. It was the deadline for completion of his novel, The Decay of the Angel, the fourth book in his tetralogy, The Sea of Fertility. He placed the completed manuscript, sealed in an envelope addressed to his publisher, on a table. Mishima had given intimations that the completion of the tetralogy would be the culmination of his life’s work. Read more …

English version here

Důvody k životu i smrti jsou nezřídka totožné. Rozhodně tomu tak bylo v případě Dominique Vennera, jenž svým činem uvedl svůj život a smrt do hlubokého souznění. Dle svých slov se rozhodl zemřít způsobem nejčestnějším za daných okolností – tedy když slova nemůžou popsat ani vyjádřit pocity. Dominique Venner nakonec zemřel tak, jak žil – se stejnou vůlí a jasností. Read more …

Uuden avioliittolain vastustajat huutavat julki kärsimättömyyttään ja raivoaan. Jos huono laki säädetään, se voidaan aina kumota.

Luin juuri erään algerialaisen bloginpitäjän kirjoitusta. ”Oli miten oli”, hän sanoi, ”viidessätoista vuodessa islamistit nousevat valtaan ranskassa ja mitätöivät tämän lain.” Eivät varmastikaan miellyttääkseen meitä, vaan koska se on Sharian vastainen.  Read more …

Traducido por Francisco Albanese

El suicidio de Dominique Venner el 21 de Mayo: Marine Le Pen se inclinó ante este gesto para despertar la conciencia, lo que puede parecer sorprendente, pero el honor es suyo. Una representante del grupo de payasas feministas Femen, trató de manchar su recuerdo al día siguiente, parodiando —en topless—  su suicidio en el coro de Notre Dame. En su pecho magro estaba pintado: “Que el Fascismo descanse en el Infierno”. Read more …

Sebevražda Dominique Vennera dne 21. května v katedrále Notre Dame. Marine Le Pen se tomuto gestu procitnutí vědomí poklonila – což se může zdát překvapivé, nicméně jí to slouží ke cti. Již následující den se pokusily pošpinit jeho památku polonahé členky sdružení Femen, což je skupina feministických štěnic. Na jejich plochých hrudích stálo “Ať fašismus shoří v pekle.” Je to již podruhé, kdy tyto nahé poběhlice beztrestně řádily v katedrále, a to i přes bezpečnostní kontrolu u vchodu. Read more …

Είμαι υγιής σωματικά και πνευματικά και γεμάτος αγάπη για τη γυναίκα μου και τα παιδιά μου. Αγαπώ τη ζωή και δεν προσδοκώ τίποτε περισσότερο, εκτός από τη διαιώνιση της φυλής και του πνεύματός μου. Παρ’ όλα αυτά, στη δύση της ζωής μου, αντιμετωπίζοντας τεράστιους κινδύνους για την Γαλλική και Ευρωπαϊκή μου πατρίδα, νιώθω την υποχρέωση να δράσω, όσο έχω δυνάμεις. Πιστεύω πως είναι απαραίτητο να θυσιάσω τον εαυτό μου για να διακόψω το λήθαργο που μας πληγώνει. Read more …

Οι λόγοι για να ζει κανείς και οι λόγοι για να πεθάνει, είναι συχνά οι ίδιοι. Αυτή ήταν σίγουρα η περίπτωση για τον Dominique Venner, του οποίου η χειρονομία σκόπευε στο να φέρει την ζωή και τον θάνατό του σε απόλυτη αρμονία. Είπε ότι επέλεξε να πεθάνει κατά τον τρόπο που ήταν ο πιο έντιμος στις συγκεκριμένες συνθήκες, ειδικά όταν οι λέξεις είναι πια αδύνατον να περιγράψουν, να εκφράσουν το τι νοιώθουμε.

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.
