The Paranoid German Mind: Counting Down to the Next War

Having lost, during and after World War II, over 9 million of its soldiers and civilians, Germany has had to wallow in expiation and self-abnegation.  Its present grotesque multicultural policy of Willkomenskultur (“welcoming culture” toward non-European migrants), openly heralded by Chancellor Angela Merkel and her government, is the direct result of the lost war. Germany’s […]

What to Read, Part 4: Hero and Heretic vs. the System — from Literature to Politics

Part 1. Part 2. Part 3. One must make an additional distinction, this time between the mythical heroes in Western literary heritage and the real heroes or heroes hopeful in Western political life. Thousands of mythical heroes, including Achilles or Hector, fighting alongside the walls of Troy, or better yet, the demigod heroes such as […]

What to Read, Part 3: Hero and Heretic vs. the System — from Literature to Politics

The article below is based on the speech given at the “London Forum,” London UK, May 16, 2015). The nouns ‘hero’ and ‘heretic’ are used as frequent figures of speech in daily communication. Every day, almost every minute of our time, either consciously or subconsciously, we refer to the notion of hero and heretic, albeit […]

Monotheism vs. Polytheism

This piece below was first published in Chronicles (A Magazine of American Culture), April 1996. Can we still conceive of the revival of pagan sensibility in an age so profoundly saturated by Judeo-Christian monotheism and so ardently adhering to the tenets of liberal democracy? In popular parlance the very word “paganism” may incite some to […]

Babel and the Capitalist Babelization

Review of Babel Inc.: Multiculturalism, Globalisation, and the New World Order by Dr. Kerry Bolton Black House Publishing Ltd, 2013 The tower of Babel is rightly used as a metaphor for contemporary rootless and mongrelized masses stashed together in the towering inferno of end times. As an allegory, however, the process of “babelization” signifies a distorted […]

The Curse of Victimhood and Negative Identity

Originally posted at Arutz Sheva: Israel National News, January 30, 2015. Posted here with permission of the author. Days and months of atonement keep accumulating on the European wall calendar. The days of atonement however, other than commemorating the dead, often function as a tool in boosting political legitimacy of a nation – often at the […]

Modern Education and the Destruction of Culture

Speech delivered at the Traditional Britain Conference to the Traditional Britain Group, on October 18, 2014 ( Due to incessant semantic shifts over the last one hundred years the word ‘culture’ has become meaningless. It denotes everything and therefore it means nothing.  It can express a political or a theological belief; it can also […]

Defying the Budapest Ban: The Rebel vs the Dissident

 Despite the ban by the Hungarian government, the NPI conference did take place in Budapest on October 5, albeit in a truncated version but with an air of rebellion and emotional intensity. A day earlier, despite the arrest of the NPI Chairman Mr. Richard Spencer, despite constant police surveillance of all NPI guests, and despite […]

The Rise and Demise of the EU: A Short History of A Big Failure

Several costly mistakes were made by the founding fathers of the European Union: economics, and not politics, was thought to be the best tool to bring about the unification of Europe; unclear plans about the limits of the enlargement of the European Union; the unexpected and ongoing floods of non-European immigration as a result of […]

Tragedy and Myth in Ancient Europe and Modern Politics

  The following is an abridged version of my speech given at the London Forum, February 1, 2014, London, UK. The video of the whole speech is available here.

After the Fall: Beyond Nationalism

What follows is my speech delivered at the NPI conference at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington DC, on October 26, 2013 Ladies and Gentlemen, We could replace the noun ‘the fall’ with other related words having stronger, more loaded meanings, such as ‘the end time’ or ‘chaos’ — or ‘the end of a world,’ […]

Nationalist Parties in the European Union: Electoral Goals and Political Hopes

This is an abridged version of the talk to American Freedom Party members, given in Los Angeles, July 6, 2013. At first sight it appears that launching a nationalist or a racialist, or a so-called right- wing party in Europe is a relatively easy task — easier than in the USA, where the two party […]

The West against Europe

The following is the English translation of my speech in French, given in Lyon, France, on May 25, for the French identitarians (students, members of the “GUD” and “Europe Identité.”)  The speech was delivered in honor of the late Dominique Venner, a historian and philosopher who committed suicide on May 21.

What to read? (Part 2)

Literature: Harold Covington Let us leave aside the political plausibility or post-historical veracity of Covington’s novels dealing with the war of White independence at the beginning of the 21st century in the Pacific Northwest. What needs to be singled out in Covington’s prose is his language, his ability to construct both real and surreal plots, and […]

What to read, Part 1

  There is no such thing as rightwing vs. leftwing literature. There is only bad literature vs. good literature, with the definition of goodness vs. badness resulting from one’s own implicit cultural and racial baggage. For more than a half century, teachers and scholars have used public and academic discourse quite in line with the […]

How to read

It is far easier to reflect on the art of dating than on the art of reading. For a student in humanities the main concern must not be which author he needs to read and which one he needs to discard, but rather how to read and how to interpret the text. Before he flips […]

Introduction What follows below is my translation of a short chapter (Ch. 40) from Otto Koellreutter’s book Der nationalsozialistische Rechtsstaat (1938) (The Rule of Law in National Socialist State). Koellreutter was professor and dean of law at the University of Munich from 1933–1945. Along with Carl Schmitt, he was one of the prominent legal scholars […]

The following is an English translation of an article published in the French magazine RIVAROL (published by  Jérôme Bourbon) on the A3P and it’s presidential candidates. In the hustle and bustle of the various right wing currents inAmericait is fascinating to observe the recent birth of the American Third Position Party (A3P), a new political party dedicated […]

Carl Schmitt’s “Jews in Jurisprudence” (Part 2)

Introduction to Part 2: Part 2 of “Jews in Jurisprudence” continues the glimpse into the mind of an important intellectual during the National Socialist period.  One has to remember that this is a speech to a gathering sponsored by a high government official in a nation with a very well-defined official ideology. It is not […]

Carl Schmitt’s “Jews in Jurisprudence” (Part 1)

The Balkanization of the System: Ernst Jünger and the Endtimes, Part 3

Jünger’s alter ego, the Anarch, should not be surprised at the sight of a new Holy Alliance between the Merchant and the Commissar, between Big Business and the Left. The Left favors mass immigration because immigrants, in its eyes, represent the substitute symbol of the new proletariat. For the capitalist it is also advantageous to […]

The Balkanization of the System: Ernst Jünger and the Endtimes, Part 2

Unfortunately, many self-proclaimed White racialists think they can fight the System by violent means. Jünger’s sovereign type of a nonconformist wisely watches from his watchtower and waits for the right moment before he strikes. Perhaps one could learn some lessons from the rebels in the Vendée province during the French Revolution, or from Balkan outlaws during the Turkish occupation stretching from the […]

The Balkanization of the System: Ernst Jünger and the Endtimes, Part 1

    It seems that the prognoses about the imminent death of the West were not just a favorite topic of the German philosopher of history Oswald Spengler, the author of the much acclaimed The Decline of the West. In times of great geopolitical disruptions and social polarizations, such as those sweeping now over Europe […]

Art in the Third Reich: 1933-1945 (Part 2)

The Archaic Postmodernity National Socialist dignitaries devoted much energy to the promotion of German sculptors and helped them considerably in the execution of massive bas-reliefs and in the erection of monumental stone and bronze sculptures. The political goal was obvious: to bring German art as close as possible to the German people, so that any […]

Art in the Third Reich: 1933–1945 (Part 1)

This is a slightly edited version of an article was first published in Ecrits de Paris (Nr. 645, July-August 2002, L’Art dans l’IIIème Reich. Translated by the author.) When writing about or discussing the plastic and figurative arts in Germany during the period from 1933 to 1945, one must inevitably mention the art that highlighted the epoch […]

Ludwig F. Clauss: Racial Style, Racial Character (Part II)

Continuing from Part I with a translation of parts of the third edition (1943) of Rasse und Seele, by Ludwig F. Clauss. “To each according to his kind, to each according to his style” The movement of the body is the expression of the movement of the soul. This can best be seen in the […]

Ludwig F. Clauss: Racial Style, Racial Character (Part I)

The liberal-communist propaganda against Fascism and National-Socialism has produced results contrary to those originally anticipated. It has created the conceptual model of a value system that often defies the objective reality of the bygone Fascist and National-Socialist epochs. It has given birth to dangerous and subconscious infatuation with hyperreal would-be Fascism, best to be seen […]

Which Way White Man? (Part 2)

Every human wants to physically and racially look better than he actually does; wants to date and mate with a racially better looking partner than he is; his role model must be both intellectually and racially better than himself. Even the most ardent White liberal advocate of racial miscegenation is secretly keen about grooming his […]

Which Way White Man? (Part 1)

The advantage of Whites in North America is their racial and linguistic unity stretching from Alaska to Arkansas, from San Francisco to Boston. This unique phenomenon, coupled with implicit racial awareness, still enables America to thrive as a global superpower. White Americans, regardless of their diverse European roots, can freely use the word “nationalism” given […]
