Man and Technics […] despite being ignored by mainstream historians and academics for more than eighty years, remains one of the most accessible and illuminating introductions to Spengler’s work.
Seeking comfort, profit, and utility, we are being lulled to sleep, dominated by ‘technics’, surrendering our vital power and spirit. Man and Technics contributes to a ‘philosophy of life’, then, by awakening in us a sense of our ‘doom’.
Very rarely does a book make you feel good about receiving bad news. Usually, there’s something you fear so much that you want anything but to face it. But if someone is able to explain in clear steps what you must do to face it, and how the other side is indeed brighter, it lessens the burden. With decreased resistance and doubt comes greater effectiveness, and you may emerge with more triumph than suspected possible. Can Life Prevail? is one such book.
A presentation of the main arguments of [Fascism Viewed from the Right by Julius Evola].
Reading Conservatism Inc.: The Battle for the American Right helps solidify our knowledge of the future. It transforms certainty of defeat into a commitment to victory, realizing that attempting a Buckleyite removal of that which offends others will not work, and that we have to steam straight ahead into battle knowing that it will polarize, divide, and perhaps shatter the United States. […] A pleasant read, owing in part to its division into smaller pieces, it presents us with the type of certainty that comes from knowing what does not work, and why it was doomed, which allows us in turn to look toward the future as a place where actual conservatism can exist.
James Kirkpatrick, columnist for VDare.com and The Social Contract Quarterly, spent years within a conservative movement that now has no place for him, but readers of his new book Conservatism Inc. will be the beneficiaries of their folly. No one knows that gutless, cowardly gang of careerists better than he does. […] The pieces are short and punchy, ideal especially for younger readers getting up to speed on America’s current situation and the nationalist response.
I started reading Conservatism Inc. in the midst of the “Groyper Wars,” in which young men on the Dissident Right publicly confronted conservative figures such as Charlie Kirk, Ben Shapiro, Matt Walsh, and Dan Crenshaw — Conservative Inc. to a man — during their college speaking tours. Questions about race, immigration, and demographic change left these men sputtering about “racism” and “white nationalism,” and sounding just like the leftists they are supposedly fighting.
A strong debut. Highly recommended. The characters are interesting and credibly portrayed … and face the same challenges as ourselves, like loss, revenge and love, which gives the story a deeper dimension … [E]xciting, and the battle scenes are deadly realistic. At the same time, the insight into Japanese culture and bushido is very much appreciated.
In this episode, I look at Russian philosopher and geopolitical strategist Alexander Dugin’s vision of a new political order to replace both liberalism and its natural culmination, post-liberalism. I mention the need to differentiate a specifically American version of the fourth political theory, moving toward a position of pragmatic eclecticism that can absorb some of the disjointed remnants of liberalism that infuse our Constitution and society.
Tito Perdue is, without question, one of the most important contemporary Southern writers we have—and should certainly be considered among the most important American writers of the early 21st century. This new novel of his is an absolute delight.
In his last book, published in 2019, Faye describes how our continent has been affected by mass immigration, and predicts a dark future for Europe and the West. If the peoples of Europe don’t simply submit to the new colonisers, Faye sees a civil war coming, that can either be won or lost.
This is one to be read slowly, relishing every sentence like a rich dessert wine… this is a magical love story, cute, visceral, and absorbing, with a caliginous dreamlike atmosphere, a charismatic voice, clever dialogue, and endearing characters so real that they almost feel like personal friends. Indeed, one is almost able to inhale the distinctive air of that time and place, almost a witness to events, rather than a reader from cynical postmodernity, half a century removed… the story is told in a terrifically amusing manner, and every page is a constellation of little gems… One is sad to reach the end.
