The best chapter of the book is Resisters or Histrions, where Faye fires well-deserved salvos at the inept and defeatist Right, its weakness and incompetence compared to the ever-victorious Left, and, in addition to once again mocking the “ethnopluralists” and those obsessed with “metapolitics” instead of real political action, Faye also chides those European activists who have obsessed over American “race-based IQ comparisons” …
Reading Faye, one is shocked at his lack of concern for France’s speech laws, a disregard that led to a number of appearances in court. Faye was courageous and bold, and his ideas are often bumpy and uneven, but always sincere. Perhaps the best reason to read Faye is that, despite his penchant for a coming apocalypse, he was an optimist. One can therefore read Faye to be encouraged. He closed this volume, after all, with the words: “Do not despair.”
While Lee‘s critique of modernity seems to be deadly serious, Perdue offers a marvelous black comedy that is sometimes as astringent as John Yount’s Toots in Solitude. A promising debut.
Rebirth of Europe is a refreshing and optimistic document that punches well above its weight for a book of such modest length. It has a depth, breadth, and clarity of philosophical understanding that is often rare in texts of this nature, and it is thought-provoking to say the least. The issues that it raises demand attention, and further action, by anyone concerned with the ethnonationalist cause.
Alba Rosa is a literary gold mine, located at the intersection of Identitarianism and Traditionalism: Wolfheze analyses of the Kali Yuga, the Mors Triumphalis and the Christian Katechon, incorporates Peter Sloterdijk and analyzes the political landscape of the Netherlands. For all those defending our peoples and our civilization and all those that seek to reconnect with their traditions and deeper sources, Alba Rosa is compulsory reading.
Iranian Leviathan is a fascinating book. A must-read for Iranians and related peoples. Even though a few readers will not fully agree with Jorjani, it’s an exciting and extremely fact-packed overview of the history of Iranian civilization. (Translated from Swedish)
That slides this book from pure textbook closer to the self-help category but without the neurotic creeping manipulation of that genre, which tends to lure in desperate people and crush their sense of autonomy so that they can join the cult promoted by the person writing the book who hopes to have their own talk show someday. Instead, it arms people with defensive knowledge. If the book has a subtext, it involves transferring from superstitious ignorance to cautious and highly particular knowledge.
Leonard is a first rate academic, and much of the book concerns the fate of Sweden and its influx of migrants that led to the mass rape of Swedish women and children that the Swedish media neglected to report due to the government’s inane white guilt. He also covers the open door migration policy that has devastated France and Germany.
An interesting essay in Metaphysics of Power deals with the French king Philip the Fair. Philip has, by some, been hailed as a proto-fascist king. Evola, however, takes issue with Philip because he laid the foundations of the centralisation of power (to Paris), at the expense of the feudal lords of France.
An exciting epos… Nya Tider [New Times] has interviewed a young man with a love for art, blood and folk. (Translated from Swedish)
But still, this grim prophecy, drawn by Jonasson, contains the seeds of optimism. Signy never gives up hope, even when her twin brother prefers to be beaten than to give a blow. If that little girl, symbolising our conscience, can keep hope, why can’t we? Of course, what the tale implies is that hard times will occur if we do not make a stand now. The longer we wait and the more we endure the present order, the harder and the less pleasant will be the reckoning. There is no way one can escape his fate.
The articles by Steuckers, Krebs, Blairon, Jared Taylor and others provide a good overall picture of Guillaume Faye’s thinking. We get an insight into his three biographical “phases”, from the energetic, early phase of GRECE, through the period in political exile when he worked with series and as a radio presenter, to his return to fight for a Europe whose situation then was worse than ever.
