In the Future

Some aphorisms looking at how we speculate about the future without trying to learn from what the past thought about the future.

Continuing our week of excerpts dedicated to Guillaume Faye, we have published two articles today. Following is a provocative series of aphorisms calling into question our ways of assessing, dreading, or hoping for the future by Peter King, in the spirit of his recent Arktos publication On Modern Manners. Alongside this, we have also published an excerpt from Faye’s book The Colonisation of Europe.

The comment section of Arktos Journal will be regulated by standards consonant to the principles of the project itself. Our general rules are as follows:

  • Comments will not be moderated on the basis of the opinions expressed (controversy is welcome), but rather on their quality.
  • Contributors are requested to obey the rules of civility, without which all discourse is null, and to avoid crude personal attacks. Wit is welcome, but argument, and not insult, will be the expected means of refutation.
  • Obscenities, vulgarity and slurs will not be tolerated.
  • Contributors are invited to check their contributions for general grammatical correctness (allowances will obviously be made for second-language speakers) and logical cohesiveness.

As a general guideline, all contributors should imagine that they are speaking their minds aloud in a public space, unhindered by political correctness but bound to the older standards of honour and decency in speech.

All decisions of the moderators are final.
