Here’s a stumper: if the definition of irony is typically something like “that which goes against expectations,” then how could an Avant-Garde artist—one who is expected to test the boundaries of our expectations—ever satisfy popular, mainstream, garden-variety tastes in irony? At some point, the Avant-Garde artist will, according to his nature, go against the expected means by which the unexpected is supposed to be realized; he will offer us a new unexpectedness. (more…)

For Henri Joseph Fenet, and the Men of the Charlemagne Division — “Loyal To The End”
Your knighthood was bestowed
In the reign of fire
The weight of judgement
Already a Damocletian sword.
Thinking of home,
But now there is no home —
As the drought intensifies in California an old idea comes to mind.
Donald Baker, an engineer with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power dreamed up the idea of shipping surplus northern water south and in 1964 took his idea to the Parsons Corporation where the North American Water and Power Alliance (NAWAPA) was born.

“Aquellos que hablan demasiado sobre raza, ya no tienen ninguna”.–Oswald Spengler
Recientemente he pasado una buena cantidad de tiempo releyendo al gran Oswald Spengler: para ilustración general, pero también con un ojo para criticar sus enseñanzas sobre raza, que a la primera lectura me parecieron confusas, bizarras, y peligrosas. (more…)
Rousseau’s brave savages
had circled her covered wagon,
of life that could have been:
dreams of a promised land,
a son and rag-doll daughter,
a scalped Scottish husband,
and not a drop of water.

The End of the Present World conference was held on October 12th, 2013 at a prestigious London venue. The three speakers were all luminaries of the European New Right: Laurent James, Alain de Benoist, and Alexander Dugin. The conference was themed around the idea of the waning of American power and the rise of a multipolar world.
Thomas Goodrich is a crime writer, and when he is not writing heart-wrenching accounts of Allied war-crimes (Hellstorm: The Death of Nazi Germany, 1944–1947 [Sheridan, Colorado: Aberdeen Books, 2010]) or Indian atrocities, his restless eye scans the South Florida newspapers for reports on local outrages which may have wider import.
Anyone visiting South Florida in the winter does not need me or the nightly newsreader to inform them that people are living longer. (more…)

In this final selection from Anthony Ludovici’s last book Religion for Infidels (London: Holborn, 1961), I have augmented John Day’s selections in The Lost Philosopher: The Best of Anthony M. Ludovici (Berkeley, Cal.: ETSF, 2003) with the concluding sections of the book. On Ludovici’s account, prayer is essentially meditation that mobilizes the deep forces of nature, (more…)
“Demographic theory, and numerous simulations, have already shown that immigration cannot compensate for population ageing except with flows so large as to hugely increase population growth and rapidly replace the existing population with a foreign one— (more…)
You disappeared in the dead of winter,
but not like Yeats. No wife or mistress
were at your side. A hole and splinter
alarmed you, but did not distress.
Duty called. You would not part

I’m a huge proponent of depressive realism, the proposition that the darker way of looking at things is generally closer to the truth. All things being equal, pride, greed, neglect, and failure are a safer bet than humility, charity, stewardship, and victory. My first nudge away from mainstream thought and belief was a visceral suspicion that humanity wasn’t a global brotherhood of fundamentally equal comrades in a universal quest for happiness and prosperity.
We’re not all equal. Though, without divine intervention, we’re all equally screwed. (more…)

What, then, are the disconnected facts, the underlying relation of which would have vindicated Lamarck, shed important light on the evolutionary process and simultaneously explained many a problem connected with religion and religious practice? (more…)

(f) The sixth conclusion to which a steady and careful study of Nature inevitably leads us is that wherever there is living matter, whether in the human brain or in a blade of grass, there also shall we find intelligence. Every particle of live matter is, we know, composed of cells which, individually and by the simple fact that they are alive, give evidence of intelligent activity. (more…)
Anmerkung von Greg Johnson:
Der folgende Bericht über die Zerstörung von Dresden in der Nacht vom 13. zum 14. Februar 1945 ist ein Auszug aus Kapitel 10 von Hellstorm: The Death of Nazi Germany, 1944-1947 (Sheridan, Colorado: Aberdeen Books, 2010), das sich vorwiegend mit dem Schicksal unschuldiger Deutscher, (more…)
Joss Whedon’s 2005 film Serenity is the sequel to his short-lived 2002 science fiction series Firefly. Even though only 14 episodes of Firefly were shot, and their quality is somewhat uneven, it is one of the best science-fiction series ever and showed enormous promise. Whedon, who also created Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Dollhouse, is one of tvland’s most versatile and compelling storytellers, effortlessly combining comedy, satire, and farce with extremely moving drama.

Whatever happened to the American Dream? It came true. You’re looking at it. Greg Johnson and John Morgan join Richard Spencer to discuss the universe of Watchmen and what it reveals about modern America, the contractions of liberals, and the implicit “fascist” mentality that underlies Superhero myths.
