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.
In this episode of Interregnum, we are joined by Constantin von Hoffmeister, Johannes Scharf, and Guillaume Faye’s own French editor, Daniel Conversano, to discuss the last book which Faye finished before his death, Ethnic Apocalypse: The Coming European Civil War. We consider this book directly in the context of the social, political and ethnographic situation of various parts of Europe, and weigh the merits of Faye’s predictions.
Today we’ll be exploring the Leviathan. With me is Jason Reza Jorjani, who is author of a number of books including Prometheus and Atlas, World State of Emergency, Lovers of Sophia, Novel Folklore, and the book that will be the basis of our discussion today, Iranian Leviathan.
Jorjani speculates that Constantine made Christianity the Roman state religion as a response to the threat he saw posed by Mithraism
Coming down on the futurist side of Archaeo-Futurism, Leonard’s The New Prometheans is committed to the re-activation of the West’s long-lost (or rather: long-dormant) Promethean archetype. In doing so, Leonard is pulling its Western readership, i.e. its non-collaborationist thinking part — now increasingly finding its way into New Right, for-ward and up-ward to the intellectual, psychological and ethical level at which the re-incarnation of that archetype becomes possible. Once a sufficient critical mass of combined thought and willpower has been achieved at that level, the West will be ready for a quantum leap forward. That will be the moment of the Archaeo-Futurist Revolution — it will augur in the Golden Dawn. The publication of The New Prometheans marks great progress towards that unimaginable moment. The New Right may rejoice over The New Prometheans’ preview of what lies beyond the present eclipse of the West.
This book, Guillaume Faye’s last gift to us, was finished as he was dying of cancer during the winter of 2018-19. With nothing left to lose, his language became even more forceful than usual. Faye urges his fellow Frenchmen to prepare for the physical struggle he had, by the end of his life, come to see as almost impossible to avoid.
The celebrated French far-Right intellectual Guillaume Faye passed away in March, after a long battle with cancer, but not before leaving us a literary parting shot that deserves to be a bestseller. In his final book, Faye explores the demographic, cultural, political, and military degradation of France, drawing sobering lessons for the West as a whole. The book makes a number of stark and terrifying predictions that, when all current trends are taken into consideration, have an overwhelming probability of coming to fruition.
[Andrew Fraser] recognizes, however, that it is not enough to mourn the loss of once-secure and legitimate ethno-religious identities. Nor will politics alone save us. His book, Dissident Dispatches: An Alt-Right Guide to Christian Theology, outlines the fundamental elements of the Christian ethno-theology sorely needed if we are to halt, much less reverse, the rising tide of color.
Here he presents a narrative concerning the possible Scythian/Iranian origin of Buddhism. He points out that the appelation “Sakamuni” is a likely reference to Gautama’s Scythian origins. His bold hypothesis suggests that Gautama is one and the same with Lao Tzu, the ostensible founder of Taoism. Further Jorjani suggests that Gautama may have also been the magus, Gaumata, who briefly ruled the Achaemenid Persian empire. Fundamentally, he sees Buddhism as a refutation of Zoroastrian thought.
