English original here

„O štěstí neusiluje člověk, jenom Angličan.“ – Nietzsche

Hlavní otázky metapolitiky se soustřeďují kolem identity, morálky amožnosti.

Carl Schmitt považuje za prvopočátek politična dělení na nás a je. Otázky identity zní: „Kdo jsme?“ a „Kdo nejsme?“ Konktrétněji si bílý nacionalismus žádá odpověď na otázku: „Kdo je bělochem a kdo jím není?“  Read more …

4,547 words

French translation here

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 …

Introduction to Plato’s Republic, Part 2

3,160 words

lightincavePart 2 of 2

Author’s Note:

The following text is based on a transcript by V. S. of a lecture on Plato’s Republic. As usual, I have edited his transcript to remove excessive wordiness and corrected a couple of small mistakes.  

Plato writes in his Seventh Letter that he never set forth his own philosophy in any of his writings. That’s a pretty extraordinary statement for one of our greatest philosophers to make. Read more …

“Man does not strive for happiness, only the Englishman does.”—Nietzsche

Part 8: Gelassenheit

Part 8 of 8

Gelassenheit

We can say that the plot of the Ring is simply this: Western man, in the person of Wotan, finally awakens to the destructiveness of his thumotic nature, and wills his own end. (See my review of Duchesne’s Uniqueness of Western Civilization for a discussion of how Western man is preeminently thumotic man.) Read more …

Siegfried

If Wotan is the main character of the Ring, Siegfried is its hero. However, in dealing with the character of Siegfried we do not depart from our discussion of Wotan at all. This is because Siegfried, like many of the other characters in the Ring, is a kind of hypostatization of an aspect of Wotan himself.  Read more …

The Beginning & the End of History

hoplites-fighting1,493 words

The duel to the death over honor is a remarkable phenomenon. Animals duel over dominance, which insures their access to mates. But these duels result in death only by accident, because the whole process is governed by their survival instincts, and their “egos” do not prevent them from surrendering when the fight is hopeless.

Red Dawn (1984)

3,819 words

Successful action films come twice – the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce. Red Dawn is a classic of the Cold War, a near perfect encapsulation of the unique psyche of Conservativus Americanus during the long twilight struggle against Soviet Communism. Perhaps despite itself, it also contains Traditionalist themes that make it a true classic of the authentic Right.

How do you define masculinity?
