Archeofuturism has a quality that might not matter to most of our readers, but at least to those who get tired of dull walls of text: it’s a rather light read. […] Archeofuturism is, despite footnotes and academic references, not an academic work. This is particularly well illustrated by the final chapter, which is a fictional short-story about a possible archeofuturistic future. (Translated from Swedish)
There is much more to it than this review can encompass, and therefore reading Faye’s book for yourself is heartily recommended.
This chapter discusses the life and work of Guillaume Faye, a pan-European revolutionary-conservative thinker who is at the origin of the renewal of the doctrinal corpus of the French “identitarian” Right, and more broadly of the Euro-American Right, with the concept of “archeofuturism,” forged in the mid-1990s using elements from postmodern philosophy and from the counterculture.
The third edition of Metaphysics of War […] released by Arktos. This edition is a considerable better than the two previous ones. (Translated from Swedish)
If you google his name you will find allot of misleading information about him due to the recent resurfacing of his name after […] Steve Bannon, cited him as one of his influences. […] This book, Metaphysics of War, along with Evola’s other work can be purchased from Arktos and it is preferable to purchase it from them since they are the ones doing a great service to humanity by translating such work and making it available for all and the least we can do is give them their due credit so they can continue their services.
One of Sweden’s more well-known conservative writers, Lars Holger Holm, along with his colleague Kenneth Maximilian Geneser, has written Magna Gothica — a magnificent mythopoetic work on the history of the Goths. Nya Tider has interviewed a productive writer with a passion for classical culture and Germanic history. (Translated from Swedish)
In general terms, this essay aims at a Traditionalist ‘exegesis’ of Chapter 6 (‘Aryan Empire’) of Jason Jorjani’s work World State of Emergency. More specifically, it aims at elucidating the ‘Aryan Archetypes’ that Jorjani has unearthed from the older strata of Persian Tradition by expanding on their meta-historical context and by re-viewing them through the prism of Traditionalist symbolic hermeneutics.
All of this brings me back to the conclusion of Kevin MacDonald’s Culture of Critique, where MacDonald questions whether Europeans will be able to maintain their way of life or whether they will be forced to adopt the methods of highly ethnocentric competitors. There is certainly an element of sadness to the latter. Richard Storey’s “Reactionary Manifesto” offers some light at the end of the tunnel.
Linkola lives the life he advocates for others. Until retirement he lived off of fishing from a rowing boat and selling the catch, traveling by horse and cart. He lives a simple life in a cabin in the forest without running water, car or a computer. […] He is passionate about the preservation of life and biodiversity. […] The most concrete result of his activism is the founding of the Finnish Foundation for Natural Heritage. Through this, forest land is purchased in Finland to preserve and protect it from exploitation. (Translated from Swedish)
Storey looks not only to historical causes of the decline of Western civilization, but even to more recent events like mass immigration from countries whose individuals do not hold to the same natural law tradition. […] Everyone on the left will hate it – including left-libertarians; everyone who views libertarianism primarily through an economic lens will hate it.
What we have here is a highly original approach to the modern European condition, and Leonard’s diagnosis of the problems of the West, the ideology of failure itself, so to speak, cuts close to the bone in the best possible way, and given his wealth of personal experience, is unlikely to be easily refutable by those who dispute his analysis of the consequences of cultural Leftism. As a work in the tradition of moderate conservatism, steeped in common sense and a wide yet not unfocussed array of scholarship, this book will be invaluable to those seeking to better understand our present situation, caught between a political elite unsympathetic to the people of a rapidly changing Europe on one hand, and a deeply-embedded social culture of liberal orthodoxy which refuses to engage in any meaningful debate on the other.
… another book, also from Arktos — The Shock of History by Dominique Venner. I have a good quote to illustrate my point […]: ‘The hatred for old Europe was also a major motivation for the communists. They too wanted to create a new man; a homo-economicus […] liberated from the ‘shackles’ that are his roots, nature and culture’.
