Thanks, America!

Love and being the United States of America means never having to say you're sorry (at least not yet). It also means being pompously and ludicrously self-righteous – a bit like someone with a toilet seat around their neck offering you advice on etiquette.

The latest clanger in this line was dropped by Chuck Hagel, the US defence (sic) secretary at a recent three-day summit held in Singapore, where he accused China of being a "destabilizing force" in the South China Sea. Yes, perhaps in that little patch of brine, but what kind of authority does America have to accuse any country of destabilizing anywhere? After all, this is a country that is currently supporting factions – or simply stirring the shit – in on-going bloodbaths in Egypt, Syria, and the Ukraine.

NEITHER PROGRESSIVE NOR CONSERVATIVE: THE ANTI-MODERNISM OF G.K. CHESTERTON


Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936) bears the distinction of being a writer who resisted virtually all of the dominant trends of his era. He lived during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, precisely the time that modernity was fully consolidating itself within Western civilization more than a century after the apex of the Enlightenment and the French Revolution. Chesterton began his writing career as a young man and as the twentieth century was just beginning. As much as any other writer from his era, he predicted the horrors that century would entail.

MAYA ANGELOU: CREATION OF WHITE LIBERALS USING GUILT AS A WEAPON



Maya Angelou died yesterday. For those of us who lived through the Clinton years, she served as a symbol for white guilt.

RESPECTABILITY

With Europe in the public eye thanks to the European Parliamentary Elections, we are re-running some relevant and informative articles on Euro-nationalism, like this one from 18th July, 2013.


by Adrian Davies

“Respectability” is one of the most confusing and controversial words in our kind of politics, since it is used to convey two quite different, indeed, unrelated meanings.

On the one hand, it means doing just what Nigel Farage of UKIP does: staying within (even if at the limits of) permitted political discourse, running with the fox and hunting with the hounds, especially on the immigration issue, shamelessly protesting his supposed anti-racism but all the while courting the large anti-immigration vote.

Farage would never say that a nation is ultimately an extended kin group based in the last analysis upon ties of blood, not a mere social construct based upon shared language, religion, culture or “values” (which to the British political class in any event mean the false, worthless and inverted “values” of bourgeois liberalism).

ELLIOT RODGER: OMEGA MALE MASSACRE


Before he fatally stabbed three roommates, fatally shot three strangers, then put a fatal bullet through his own head last Friday night in Santa Barbara, California, 22-year old Elliot Rodger recorded several videos in which he bitterly complained, with singular and disconcerting intensity, about his perennial inability to get laid.

These video segments, now posted on Youtube, make for a surreal viewing experience, since it’s difficult to reconcile the perpetually whinging, pitifully feckless lad featured with the gruesome series of murderous acts he undertook just a short time afterward. Speaking in an effete, pompous, comically imperious tone drained of emotion or affect, the slight, baby-faced Rodger expresses morose incomprehension concerning all of the rejection he has endured from girls “over the last eight years,” a span of time he says has been filled with “loneliness and unfulfilled desires.”

THE BROKEN WHIP OF OUR MASTERS


The recent European elections are not the way that civilizations are saved, and the promising results for a number of slightly more realistic parties may in fact be outliers before the anti-democratic system reasserts itself using its usual tricks. We have been here before. When the BNP threatened the political consensus in the UK a few years ago, there was a sudden clanking of gears and whirring of wheels as the Great Machine went into action to eradicate the threat, which was done by a variety of techniques:
  • Racial swamping of the areas involved
  • Intense canvassing and the establishment of a detailed voter database to allow tailored approaches to individual voters
  • Comforting (and patronizing) noises about the need to understand "the concerns of ordinary voters"
  • Cloaked threats about the consequences of voting BNP both at the community level and the individual level
  • The promotion of "suitable" alternatives, which is essentially how UKIP got its big start
  • Cultural immersion in anti-racism
The result of this is that while the fake nationalists of UKIP have done rather well this time, the UK actually lost the two real nationalist MEPs – Nick Griffin and Andrew Brons – that it had elected last time.

EUROPEAN PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS: POST-DEMOCRACY IN ACTION

by Colin Liddell

The results of the European Parliamentary Elections are rolling in, and the pundits are scrambling around for a narrative to fit the facts.

There have been a number of eye-catching shocks. Both in the UK and France, once-minor parties—UKIP and Front National—have polled the largest figures. Elsewhere, the main established parties have also done badly.

CHECK YOUR PRETENSE



Leftists frequently tell other people to "check your privilege."

This implies the assumption that the person has no value of their own, but is only in their position by virtue of this privilege and are therefore not competent to comment.

This ties into the fundamental mysticism of the left, which is that poverty in individuals and nations is caused by some great oppressive conspiracy, and not by the decisions made by those individuals and nations.

NÓS ODIAMOS O GRANDE IRMÃO

Escrito por Andy Nowicki

O que vemos diante de nós é um espetáculo medonho de rendição interminável e entreguismo.

No final de “1984”, de George Orwell, o herói e aspirante a revolucionário Winston Smith é torturado brutalmente por capangas do governo macabro no Ministério do Amor. Após esse sofrimento, sua vontade é totalmente estraçalhada, ele trai seus aliados mais próximos, bem como a si mesmo e, além do mais, aprende a "amar" o Grande Irmão, a horrível entidade totalitária que fez de sua vida algo insuportavelmente infeliz.

THE DEATH MORALITY OF THE LEFT

Leftists: self abnegating and selfish at the same time.

One of the chief characteristics of modernity is a departure from traditional morality, but merely deviating from such morality does not mean the abnegation of that morality, which is founded on eternal truths. Rather it is a form of negative affirmation of that morality. Therefore we should not be surprised that such deviation creates a strong sense of moral inferiority among those who choose that path, and thus impels a desperate need to offset it and reset the moral balance.

This simple psychological equation can be used to explain much of what we see in Leftism and why the extreme Left tends to attract the viler kinds of human being.

THE NIHILISM OF "NOW"-ISM

by Andy Nowicki

The monstrous predominance of default agnosticism—the reflexive mindset of our era—reinforces a terrible gloominess in the sensitive soul.

Those of a more obtuse psychic composition are able to avoid the snares inherent in such a circumstance, since—being frivolous by nature or by habit—they can slough off such rhetoric with the sort of automatically-generated aplomb supplied by their carelessly-cultivated shallowness. Unfortunately, it cannot be so for those mindful enough to follow premises through to their logical conclusions. These instead are like the one who, in the words of T.S. Eliot, found himself “much possessed by death/ And saw the skull beneath the skin.” For such as Eliot’s protagonist, being smacked in the face with the prospect of moribund, maggoty meaninglessness is simply too much to endure. Such seekers as these are aware of a need for greater nourishment than what they are being offered, else they will starve.

THE TRUE RIGHT: JULIUS EVOLA, SOVEREIGNTY & TRADITION


"Not to know what happened before you were born is to be a child forever. For what is the time of a man, except it be interwoven with that memory of ancient things of a superior age?" ~Cicero
Evola’s theories concerning the role of the Kṣatriya varna (caste) in antiquity are both a progression on and a refutation of Rene Guénon’s work. Despite their sharing of the same foundational source in perennial philosophy, there are a number of points on which they differ, the most obvious point of contention being the role of the Kṣatriya in relation to a hierarchical model of civilization. Guénon held that the textual model in Hinduism was correct, with the Brahmin holding all power as priests/philosophers in Traditional India. Evola, however, declared that this model was theoretical only – in practice the Kṣatriya varna held all the power. Normally associated in the West with the military, Evola instead offered a paradigm which depicted the Kṣatriya as the aristocratic caste – composed of the nobility as well as the warriors. Because Evola links the Kṣatriya to aristocracy, this becomes a central motif that is of extreme importance.

BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES


In the local and European elections later this week, it is estimated that nationalist and patriotic parties in the UK will field a total of 2,570 candidates; 289 in the European elections; and 2,281 in local elections. In many of these elections, these candidates are standing unopposed by any other nationalist or patriotic candidates, but all too often, particularly in the European elections and also in local elections in wards that have traditionally produced much support for nationalist candidates, there are nationalist and patriotic candidates standing in opposition to each other, thereby making it inevitable that the nationalist and patriotic vote will be split, minimising the possibility of electoral success.

Furthermore, this deplorable situation is made all the more tragic when one considers that to all intents and purposes, their policy schedules and offerings to the public are almost identical in every case.

IDIOT OF THE MONTH: NICK CLEGG



This is a video of Nick Clegg, leader of Britain's most Europhile political party the LibDems making yet another pointless speech. This time he's praising some Jewish initiative, but it could just as easily have been sucking up to some other ethnic group or privileged minority, like gays or feminists, because the platitudes resorted to are almost entirely interchangeable.

NICOLÁS GÓMEZ DÁVILA


101 years ago today the great Colombian reactionary Nicolás Gómez Dávila was born. ¡Feliz cumpleaños!

"The reactionary does not extol what the next dawn must bring, nor is he terrified by the last shadows of the night. His dwelling rises up in that luminous space where the essential accosts him with its immortal presence. The reactionary escapes the slavery of history because he pursues in the human wilderness the trace of divine footsteps. Man and his deeds are, for the reactionary, a servile and mortal flesh that breathes gusts from beyond the mountains. To be reactionary is to champion causes that do not turn up on the notice board of history, causes where losing does not matter. To be reactionary is to know that we only discover what we think we invent; it is to admit that our imagination does not create, but only lays bares smooth bodies. To be reactionary is not to espouse settled cases, nor to plead for determined conclusions, but rather to submit our will to the necessity that does not constrain, to surrender our freedom to the exigency that does not compel; it is to find sleeping certainties that guide us to the edge of ancient pools. The reactionary is not a nostalgic dreamer of a cancelled past, but rather a hunter of sacred shades upon the eternal hills." The Authentic Reactionary, Nicolás Gómez Dávila

ELECTILE DYSFUNCTION


In recent days Alternative Right has been working hard to highlight the deficiencies of our modern democracy.

Siryako Akda's ARE MASS MOVEMENTS OBSOLETE? contends that politics is going the way of warfare – i.e. something fought by special ops or guerrilla forces rather than the mass armies of the past. Mike Newland's MANCUR OLSON AND THE DECLINE OF NATIONS makes similar points, referring in particular to the way that strongly motivated minorities skew the system in their favour while the majority allows itself to be sidelined. William Solniger's IS ETHNIC REPLACEMENT 'UNDEMOCRATIC'? identifies the way that our nebulous egalitarianism works to disempower the majority – effectively rendering it silent – and thus allows its domination by these potent minorities

IS ETHNIC REPLACEMENT 'UNDEMOCRATIC'?

On the traditional conservative Right, it is a commonly-heard refrain that the introduction of mass immigration and multiculturalism into European nations – hereafter referred to in less euphemistic terms as “ethnic replacement”, for that it what it amounts to in practice – was and is fundamentally undemocratic. For example, we have the view of Patrick Buchanan, who states that:
“What is most significant about [ethnic replacement in the USA] is that the American people never voted for it and do not want it. It is being imposed from above, anti-democratically, by a regime that refuses to enforce our laws and is now at virtual war with the American people.”

DER SCHWARZE GRUNDZUSTAND

Von Colin Liddell

Sub-saharische Afrikaner sind die am schnellsten wachsende demographische Gruppe auf dem Planeten. Bei einer Fruchtbarkeitsrate, die mehr als dreimal so hoch ist wie die europäischer Frauen (5,2 Kinder pro Frau zu 1,6) und wenig Anzeichen für einen Rückgang zeigt, wird prognostiziert, dass die Bevölkerung des sub-saharischen Afrika sich bis zur Mitte des Jahrhunderts mehr als verdoppelt und von 1,1 Milliarden auf 2,4 Milliarden wächst.

IT'S NOT OVER TILL THE TRANSSEXUAL SINGS


I’m not quite sure where the order came from. Maybe all the way from the White House, or it may have just originated in the upper echelons of Europe's media and music biz, who instinctively know their place in the grand scheme of things. But the probability is that well before last weekend's Eurovision contest occurred it had already been decided that a bearded transsexual would be crowned Eurovision winner.

Once the decision had been taken, it would be easy to implement, because, like so much else in the world today, Eurovision is a pseudo-democratic sham run by closely coordinated elites. The mechanics alone are revealing.

MANCUR OLSON JA KANSAKUNTIEN RAPPIO DEMARIT

by Mike Newland

Miksi suuret ja voimakkaat kansat, jotka vaikuttavat lyömättömiltä, rappeutuvat ja kaatuvat? Joku voisi välittömästi päätellä, että ne tulevat yksinkertaisesti kasvavien ja väistämättä voimakkaampien mahtien valloittamiksi huolimatta kaikista eduista ja resursseista, jotka valta-asema on niille suonut.

MANCUR OLSON AND THE DECLINE OF NATIONS

The last days of Rome.

by Mike Newland

Why do great and powerful nations which appear unbeatable decline and fall? One might immediately conclude that they are simply overcome by the growth of inevitably superior forces despite all the advantages in resources which being powerful has brought them.

The best known example is Rome which enjoyed extraordinary abilities in organisation and in the technology it could apply by the standards of the day yet still collapsed.

Mancur Olson (1932-1998) was an American economist who addressed this question from the point of view of how things work in societies as a result of the formation of groups pursuing particular interests. How do incentives to combine together in self-interest affect what happens? See his book "The Rise and Decline of Nations."

The virtue of democratic government at first sight is that any group which feels itself disadvantaged can form a coalition and lobby to improve its position. That is certainly the version of democracy purveyed by politicians on the stump. It’s in principle correct if you ignore the obstacles placed in the path by a system protecting its power interests against interlopers.

But there is a paradox here, Olson argues. It is logical to think that if enough people are discontented and agree on a common interest that they will act in concert and influence how things work. In reality they often do not.

POEM: NEVER OVER - A RONDEAU REDOUBLE FOR KAI MURROS


It’s not over; it’s never over. We
Can be neither beaten or defeated
Unless we concede that we are to be.
And we shall not let that be conceded—

Nothing has fallen away, we've succeeded
In holding onto what is most holy
And protecting it, unimpeded.
It’s not over; it’s never over. We

THE BLACK BASELINE

by Colin Liddell

Sub-Saharan Africans are the fastest-growing demographic on the planet. With a fertility rate over three times as high as European women (5.2 children per woman to 1.6) that shows few signs of decreasing, the population of sub-Saharan Africa is projected to more than double, rising from 1.1 billion to 2.4 billion by mid-century.

FACING FEARFUL ODDS: "OBLIVION," AN ANTI-FEMINIST SCI-FI FABLE




With its depiction of clones, drones, and environmental exploitation, Oblivion, a 2013 sci-fi movie starring everyone's favorite Scientologist, represents an intriguing product of the contemporary Zeitgeist of the imagination. 

Like 2001's The Last Samurai, this Tom Cruise vehicle has the durably dapper, square-jawed star (honestly, has the man sold his soul to Xenu in order to strike a Dorian Gray-like bargain never to age?) adopting the mores of a traditional culture to fight an alien invasion. In both movies, the open embracing of seppuku, or death before dishonor, features prominently in the climax.

AN INTRODUCTION TO NATIONAL ANARCHISM

Tradition and Revolution 
by Troy Southgate
Arktos, 350 pages

Reviewed by Siryako Akda

I first heard of Troy Southgate while browsing Jonathan Bowden's work in the British New Right back in 2009. Back then I only knew that he was some kind of musician and cultural figure. I never really had the chance to examine much of his work online, except for brief excerpts here and there, usually in relation with Bowden's work. It was only later on that I learned that Southgate was a National Anarchist, a topic which intrigued me for quite some time.

I have to admit that Anarchism is barely known in the Philippines. Classical Anarchism was briefly introduced to this country by Isabelo De Los Reyes, but never really became a major force in Philippine politics. There were Anarchist movements in other Asian countries, namely in Korea, Japan and China but these remained marginal movements which briefly existed at the turn of the 20th Century and faded away after the second world war.

ODESSA OR DISHONOUR

Death in Odessa: the burning Trade Unions House in which 39 pro-Russian activists perished.

by Colin Liddell

One reason why I supported the Ukrainian uprising earlier this year was because, despite rumours of various kinds of "special operations" and skulduggery (on both sides), my perception was and still is that a great many of the people involved in the Maidan, including many of the members of Right Sector who spearheaded the action, were acting sincerely and with honour.
