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.

Beginning with Heidegger is an in-depth examination of the influence that Martin Heidegger’s inceptual thought exerted on Leo Strauss, Richard Rorty, Jacques Derrida and Alexander Dugin. How did these vastly different thinkers employ Heideggerian concepts to define their own philosophies and often antagonistic politics? Join me and author Michael Millerman as we discuss his new book and a whole lot more.
After a short hiatus, the Warden Post podcast is back with one of the most dangerous minds of our time: Dr Jason Jorjani. We will be discussing his first work of fiction (Faustian Futurist) and the recent transfer of power in the United States.
Retired political science professor John Harmon McElroy in Agitprop in America (2020) shows how the left has step by step invaded our culture, our behavior and our speech through agitational propaganda (agitprop). McElroy is an old-style anti-communist who details how New Left cultural Marxists have conducted the cultural front in America, beginning in the universities and reaching into popular culture.
This book is mostly insane. But not completely.
This is the Weimar Republic, to which present-day America is often analogized. Whatever the accuracy of that comparison, and despite the present treason by today’s Democrats similar to that of the Communists of 1919, our society bears very little resemblance to that Germany where, as von Salomon says, “everything was possible and nothing was certain.” We may yet get there, perhaps in November, but our wealthy, aged, risk-averse, feminized society is a very far cry from the chaotic early 1920s ferment in which von Salomon grew up fast. Still, it is worth knowing how men think in a society in chaos, especially a Western society in chaos, even one quite different from 2020 America.
Retroculture contains some pithy criticisms of contemporary culture along with a number of useful tips for individual and familial living while waxing nostalgic for times past. It might be a good suggested reading or gift for an older mainstream friend or relative.
Julien Langella is to be commended for producing an impassioned, and often furious, message from a dying France. Some bum notes and petty criticisms aside, there is much here to enthuse and enrage the committed Catholic, and to educate and inspire the non-Catholic.
Much of the history we in the English speaking world have of World War II focuses on the campaigns in Russia, Messerschmitts dogfighting with Spitfires over London, and the massive island campaigns in the Pacific between the Japanese and Americans. But one of the two founding members of the Axis Powers, Italy, receives much less attention, as its involvement does not neatly fit into the narrative of the world war, having begun operations as a fascist state in the 1920s and leaving the war early in 1943. The post-armistice period, however, was arguably the most difficult for Italy, as the civil war that broke out between the fascists, communists, and ordinary people took a tremendous toll on the social fabric of Italian families, and over 1 million men who were forcibly taken to Germany to work in their war factories. Piero San Giorgio, grandson of one of these men, joins us tonight to tell his story.
What makes the philosophy of one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century so hard to understand? We will be changing that with Michael Millerman who recently wrote one of the most comprehensive guides on Heidegger.
Faye’s insights are needed in today’s increasingly complex geopolitical theatre of shifting alliances and multiple poles of power in the global sphere, making an understanding of what he terms the New American Imperialism as necessary as ever in the wake of mass migratory displacement in Europe.
Lind pins the source of America’s problems on its heightened emphasis on the self. This emphasis began in the 1960s, when that decade’s tumultuous generation overthrew the standards of good taste, style, and manners. The years since have been filled with crudity, busyness, and moral breakdown.
