One does not even need to get beyond the cover to have one’s thinking processes activated. The adage, “one cannot tell a book by its cover”, is not quite correct in this instance. The cover art is a clever juxtaposition of a conservative looking white, middle aged male in a business suit with a fleur-de-lis lapel pin. In the background a city is engulfed in flames. The “conservative” looks ahead, not behind, as the “old” (that is, “modern”) world falls.
Dugin makes it clear that he supports Putin not only as the most suitable leader in Russia, but also because he is closest to the authentic state man in the world at the moment. … [I]n his view, Putin is currently the best leader in Russia, but Putin also has some shortcomings. For this reason, the title of the book is Putin vs Putin: it depicts two sides of a man who strives to balance in the arenas of internal and foreign policy, while maintaining Russia’s sovereignty, but without a more precise ideological basis.
Ethnos and Society is an introduction to a new discipline which Dugin calls “Ethnosociology”. In fact, this is not a new discipline, as the author admits, just as the Fourth Political Theory is not in fact a new political outlook—rather, it is a reorientation of existing disciplines by shifting focus. Ethnosociology is at its heart merely Anthropology which assumes certain rules about human society.
Welcoming special guest, Survive the Jive, to discuss The Indo-Europeans: In Search of the Homeland, by Alain de Benoist. We discuss the issues of Indo-European Studies presented in the book as well as extrapolate upon the information presented by the author with our own insights from our individual studies and perspective.
Lars Holger Holm truly has a gift with words, making the book a joy to read. I can definitely recommend it! It is available at valiant Logik!
Lars joins us following the publication of his latest book, “Kärringstaten,” which can be roughly translated to “Crone State” or “State of Bitches.” As a longtime deviator from the Swedish conformist mindset, Lars characterizes the rapid freefall of Sweden that has gained momentum since the enactment of the EU’s open border policy.
Hence the title Putin vs. Putin considers two sides to someone trying to balance factions while maintaining Russia’s sovereignty, yet without an ideological foundation. […] Putin seeks authority, which is inherent in Russia, but attempts to compromise with Western democratic models.
Besides having archival value, this book is an important tool in studying the ongoing practice of criminalizing and pathologizing political opponents by the false use of the worn-out word “fascism.” This word, which has by now totally lost its original meaning, has become a word meant to silence political opponents and prevent serious scholarly inquiry. If the liberal-minded President of the United States, Donald Trump, or the liberal German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, are denounced by their detractors as “fascists,” then one must also give full credit to Yockey for trying to restore the true and original meaning of this word.
It is little short of remarkable that we should have to wait four decades for an English translation of a text with such critical acclaim and intellectual pedigree. Credit for bringing about the English translation (published in three handsomely designed volumes and with an updated 2001 Preface) is due to Arktos Media, founded in part in 2010 with the goal of bringing the works of de Benoist to an anglophone readership.
If you often view your fellow human beings as “savages,” you’ll find good company in Linkola’s thoughts. … [O]verall he presents a rational argument for leaving behind the “progress”-driven, consumerism-based lifestyle that is destroying not only the land and animals of the earth, but the souls of its people.
Among the deserving and hardly manageable compilations released by publishers […] within the Alt-Right during the last years, A Fair Hearing makes for an extraordinary merit — especially because of its aiming at an interested, yet outside audience instead of the usual promotion of disputes within the “scene.”
Decadent Perspective joins me to discuss Alain de Benoist’s “View from the Right” (Arktos Media) as well as Benoist’s other work in relation to previous “traditionalist” thinkers such as Julius Evola and Friedrich Nietzsche. We explore what these three right wing philosophers have in common.
