The National Dividend

C. H. Douglas, founder of Social Credit

1,949 words

When, during World War I, C. H. Douglas was sent to sort out the accounting muddle in an aircraft factory in Farnborough, England he noticed that the factory was generating costs faster than it was distributing incomes. Replicating the process at a hundred other large British firms he found that the total costs were always more than the money distributed in dividends, wages, and salaries.[1]

Douglas became concerned that the men who labored in the factories producing the necessities of life could not always afford to purchase the items they had worked to produce, Read more …

Sound as a Pound (Italian)

12226283_10206590828304314_1627461731_n2,730 words

English original here

Uno dei movimenti politici più interessanti e originali apparsi in Italia negli ultimi anni è CasaPound Italia (CPI). Secondo il punto di vista dal quale li si guarda nel vecchio spettro politico, il gruppo da una parte rinnova l’estremismo di destra per le giovani generazioni, dall’altra sconfigge semplicemente l’estrema sinistra al suo proprio gioco “rivoluzionario” mantenendo nello stesso tempo il perseguimento di obiettivi di tendenza più tradizionali, come il legame con la famiglia, la comunità e la nazione, contro le forze di una globalizzazione senza limiti.  Read more …

Sound as a Pound

12226283_10206590828304314_1627461731_n2,652 words

Italian translation here

One of the most interesting and original political movements to arise in Italy in recent years is CasaPound Italia (CPI). Depending on which point you view them from in the old political spectrum, the group either repackages Right-wing extremism for a younger generation or simply beats the hard Left at its own “revolutionary” game but in pursuit of traditionalist mainstream objectives like securing family, community, and nation against the forces of unrestricted globalism.

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 …

La nécessité de l’anticolonialisme

4,389 words

BoerActionDeckBackEnglish original here

L’anticolonialisme doit être une composante de toute idéologie qui tente de défendre les identités enracinées. Il est nécessaire de s’opposer au déracinement des peuples qui accompagne la recherche du pouvoir et de la richesse. Dans sa forme impériale historique tout comme dans son déguisement financier moderne, le colonialisme a déformé le colonialiste aussi bien que le colonisé, mélangeant, diluant et même annihilant des cultures et des peuples entiers.

The Necessity of Anti-Colonialism

4,054 words

BoerActionDeckBackFrench translation here

Anti-colonialism must be a component of any ideology that attempts to defend rooted identities. It is necessary to oppose the uprooting of peoples in the pursuit of power and wealth. In both its historical imperial form and in its modern financial guise, colonialism has warped both the colonist and colonizer, mixing, diluting, and even annihilating entire cultures and peoples. We know about the negative impact of colonialism on the colonized. Read more …

Dominion

Franz von Stuck, “The Guardian of Paradise,” 1889

4,413 words

Editor’s Note:

A. R. D. Fairburn was born on February 2, 1904. In commemoration, we are reprinting his magnificent poem “Dominion,” a panorama of the British Empire and his native New Zealand in the trammels of international finance capitalism. Fairburn was a follower of Nietzsche and Spengler and an advocate of Social Credit, the most common intellectual ingredients in the outlook of Anglophone fascists in the 1920s and ’30s.

Selection by Lot in Florence

The Monte di Pietà, Florence, established to make small, interest-free loans to give people an alternative to usurious Jewish moneylenders.

The Monte di Pietà, Florence, established in the late 15th century by Franciscan brothers to make small, interest-free loans to give people an alternative to usurious moneylenders.

2,402 words

The other major use of sortition practiced in the Italian city-states was the “scrutiny,” which to a greater or lesser extent governed Florentine political life for 300 years. Similar schemes were practiced in Orvieto, Siena, Pistoia, Perugia, and Lucca. The scrutiny was different than the brevia. Whereas the brevia used sortition to determine the composition of an electoral college, the scrutiny was an inversion of this, using voting first to create a short-list of acceptable candidates and then applying sortition in the final stage to draw at random a candidate from this pre-vetted pool.[1]

Alas, the country! How shall tongue or pen
Bewail her now uncountry gentlemen?
The last to bid the cry of warfare cease,
The first to make a malady of peace.
For what were all these country patriots born?
To hunt, and vote, and raise the price of corn?
