Archäofuturistische Fiktion 
Frank Herberts Dune

1,248 words

DuneFirstEditionEnglish original here

Wenn Science-Fiction typischerweise „progressiv“ und Fantasy-Literatur „rückwärtsgewandt“ ist, dann brauchen wir eine dritte Kategorie für die sechs Dune-Bücher von Frank Herbert (1920-1986) – gar nicht zu reden von George Lucas’ sechs Star Wars-Filmen –, die futuristische Sci-Fi-Elemente mit den archaischen Werten und magischen Welten der Fantasy verbinden.

Now not all the waves
of the four seas are calm,
but in the land of Yamato,
where the sun rises,
the winds are sated, men devote themselves to pleasure.
Under the virtuous rule of His Majesty
peace reigns everywhere.

Archeofuturist Fiction 
Frank Herbert’s Dune

DuneFirstEdition1,591 words

German translation here

If science fiction is quintessentially “progressive” and fantasy literature is “reactionary,” then we need a third category for the six Dune books by Frank Herbert (1920–1986)—not to mention George Lucas’ six Star Wars movies—which combine futuristic, sci-fi elements with the archaic values and magical universes of fantasy.

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 …

The Worth of Fame

Benjamin West, The Bard, 1778

Benjamin West, The Bard, 1778

2,309 words

In retrospect, Aryans appear to have harbored a naïve faith in the natural relationship between reputation, fame, and merit. True, our conceptions served us well enough in our own world. But that was prior to the Age of Defamation. Now we see that fame, reputation, and moral worth can be completely unrelated. It is child’s play for dominant, cunning, and unscrupulous elites to destroy reputations, fabricate evidence and opinions, and reverse the judgments of history—and have their constructs stick, and be universally accepted.

Editor’s Note:

“The Fascist Dream” is the third and final part of Maurice Bardèche’s Qu’est-ce que le fascisme? (What is Fascism?) (Paris: Les Sept Couleurs, 1961).

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 …

Aphra Behn
Oroonoko; or, the Royal Slave
London: William Canning, 1688; Penguin Classics, 2003

Aphra Behn (1640–1689) was a prolific dramatist, spy, and Tory propagandist of the English Restoration. After spying for Charles II in Antwerp during the Dutch wars, she turned to literature and became a successful author—indeed, the first female literary author to earn her living entirely from her quill.

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.

Em 1814, ao final das guerras Napoleônicas, Benjamin Constant escreveu com alívio: “Nós chegamos à era do comércio, à era que deve necessariamente substituir a da guerra, como a da guerra necessariamente tinha que precedê-la”. Ingênuo Benjamin! Ele tomou generalizada idéia de progresso indefinido, como promotora do advento da paz entre homens e nações.

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.

Spiritual Warfare, Part 1:
The Warrior & the Monk

1,556 words

A story is told (whether from the Zen tradition, the Bushidō tradition, or modern Japanese cinema I don’t remember) of an encounter between a Samurai warrior and a Zen monk. The warrior approaches the sitting monk and draws his sword. The monk remains impassive. “Don’t you realize that I have no qualms about killing you?” roars the warrior. “Don’t you realize that I have no qualms about dying?” quietly replies the monk.  Read more …

Dredd:
The Order in the Chaos

2,809 words

Dredd is an action movie and nothing more. Fortunately, the creators know this and it is a good action movie, an outright celebration of blood, guts, slaughter, and gore — and a large amount of it is in slow motion. And in 3D.

While such films are rarely the subjects of critical acclaim, they do have political significance. Action movies make the egalitarian Left uncomfortable. Read more …

“When swords ran every which way like red-stained snakes, our fathers warmed to life; the sun of all peace seemed limp and lackluster to them, but the long peace caused them shame. How they sighed, our fathers, when they saw gleaming bright, dried up swords on the wall! Like them, they thirsted for war. For a sword wants to drink blood and sparkles with desire.” — Friedrich Nietzsche Read more …

Rise of the Planet of the Apes: Take Three

1,157 words

Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a triumph of intelligent film making. The plot is interesting and well executed, the direction is fast paced and engaging without being too heavy handed, and the apes are brought to life with astonishing realism. In fact, the brilliance of the apes’ characterization, largely due to the presence of the “performance capture” actor Andy Serkis, is so compelling that the best parts of the film center on the apes’ captivity and the way in which they interact with each other.
