The Politics of Nuclear War, Part 1

Graphic by Harold Arthur McNeill

3,525 words

Part 1 of 3

Portuguese translation here

Introduction

Last month marked the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis. It merited little more than a passing mention in the mainstream media, despite the fact of having been the most dramatic and iconic moment in the half-century Cold War, a conflict which had stakes higher than any other in history and which continues to haunt our current political landscape.

The Political Soldier:
Carl Schmitt’s Theory of the Partisan

4,079 words

Czech version here

So powerful is the civilizing genius of European man that, for a brief time, we even managed to tame war itself. But not all wars could be civilized, only those between civilized European states. The rules of war did not apply to wars against non-state actors, such as colonial wars against savages, civil wars and revolutions in which the state is up for grabs, and irregular warfare against partisans or guerrillas, Read more …

Veterans Hospital

84 words

Some nights are never-ending hells
for these old veterans in our care.
We do not hand out pills, but shells,
as out of battlefields they stare
from over sixty years ago
on far-off Guam or Guadalcanal.
With trembling hands they try to show
how the bravest or youngest fell.

Il y a un fond commun à toutes les civilisations basées sur la tradition, remontant à des siècles dans le passé et incluant géographiquement les civilisations nées en Asie, en Europe, et même jusqu’en Amérique centrale et en Amérique du Sud.

The Trojan Horse: Detail of the neck relief on an early 7th century BCE earthenware amphora from Mykonos

743 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

The Warrior & the City

717 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Translations: Portuguese, Spanish

In 1814, at the end of the Napoleonic wars, Benjamin Constant wrote with relief: “We have arrived at the age of commerce, the age that must necessarily replace that of war, as the age of war necessarily had to precede it.” Naïve Benjamin! He took up the very widespread idea of indefinite progress supporting the advent of peace between men and nations.

Race & War

2,459 words

One of the most serious obstacles to a purely biological formulation of the doctrine of race is the fact that cross-breeding and contamination of the blood are not the only cause of the decline and decay of races. Races may equally degenerate and come to their end because of a process – so to speak – of inner extinction, without the participation of external factors. Read more …
