What lies ahead for Europe? “Immigration is not a problem that we can calmly deal with but a war that is being waged against us,” he writes. “And wars can have only two outcomes: defeat or victory.” Neither outcome is certain. If Europe dies, this book is Mr. Faye’s testament: “There are some things that must be said for our future generations’ sake and for our posterity to know that at least some of us were indeed aware, and that our generation was not entirely composed of cowards and fools.” In the hope that Europe lives, Mr. Faye writes to “prepare European youths both mentally and ideologically to face the chaos that is likely to arise.”
Overview of the intellectual autobiography of Julius Evola [The Path of Cinnabar] (2009). Interpretation is solely that of this channels’ author.
As set out in that book, Dugin’s vision of Eurasia, or Greater Russia, is rooted in the political thought of the German jurist Carl Schmitt (1888-1985). Schmitt—who feared the Russians almost as much as he loathed liberal democracy—argued that the national state with sovereignty over a determinate geographic territory is only one type of political entity among several.
Purdue is at his best when depicting his double—or for that matter, his own doppelganger Lee Pefley who personifies in all of his novels the dying White race. All of us, all the time, without any exception, and without ever wishing to publicly admit it, are in search of our double, and should we fail to spot it, we will promptly project it into an imaginary and often would-be glorious future of ours.
This is a terrific collection of essays that is difficult to fault, and it is my sincere hope that it finds both audiences that it seeks — the movement veterans and the everyman confused about the state of his culture and nation. One might argue that it is too heavily focused on the American context at the expense of other Western nations, but it is the American context that really gave birth to the Alt-Right, especially in a stylistic sense.
The multiplicity of views and backgrounds of the Alt-Right are well captured in A Fair Hearing. As one would expect from this American manifestation of the European New Right, albeit with origins going back to the Old Right in the USA, it has its own foci.
Lauren Southern and Brittany Pettibone interviews Alexander Dugin about millennials, liberalism, identity, and the future of conservatism. (Two parts.)
Dr. Ricardo Duchesne is a historical sociologist, a professor at the University of New Brunswick and the author of “The Uniqueness of Western Civilization,” “Faustian Man in a Multicultural Age” and “Canada In Decay: Mass Immigration, Diversity, and the Ethnocide of Euro-Canadians.”
Without a doubt, Runes and the Origins of Writing fails to disappoint, and in fact opens up a new front for looking into the history of Europeans and the mystical links between practice and metaphysics that seem to be a hallmark of Indo-European philosophy and its pagan religions. de Benoist writes in a fluid, easily-readable style that includes a high degree of rhetorical devices designed to open up areas for future thinking, making the book seem like a Socratic dialogue composed of questions based on the interpretation of fact more than an argument from selected facts. This opens up the topic and lets it breathe.
Linkola lives as a model for his own beliefs, having given up his nascent biology career in favor of making a living as a fisherman. As of the English publication of Can Life Prevail?, he eschews all modern technology save for a cell phone. His lifestyle is a deep ecologist’s daydream. No mainstream environmentalist will admit to supporting his work, but he gives voice to a thought that has crossed every green’s mind at some point: Wouldn’t things be better if there were far fewer of us?
I also think that Sunic strikes the proper balance, and indeed far better than most of the European New Right, by stressing both the newness and antiquity of the American policies and attitudes under discussion. Instead of dumping on the Protestant, moralistic culture out of which America grew as a nation, Sunic believes that culture had its strengths before it became secularized and corrupted.
Heritage and Destiny readers are already indebted to Dr Tomislav Sunic, a former Croatian diplomat, for his wide ranging analysis of the European New Right, Against Democracy and Equality, reviewed in issue 20. Dr Sunic has now produced what many will regard as a doubly dangerous book.
