Notes on Schmitt’s Crisis & Ours

Carl Schmitt, 1888–1985

3,994 words

Like many of his books, Carl Schmitt’s The Crisis of Parliamentary Democracy (1923) is a slender volume packed with explosive ideas.[1] The title of the English translation is somewhat misleading. The German title, Die geistesgeschichtliche Lage des heutigen Parlamentarismus, is more literally rendered The Intellectual-Historical Position of Contemporary Parliamentarism. But the word “crisis” is still appropriate, because parliamentary democracy in Weimar Germany really was in crisis. Read more …

The Intellectual Bankruptcy of the Present Age

Michael the Brave & the Tide of the Ottoman Wars

Michael the Brave, savior of Europe?

2,446 words

The history of Romania as a concrete country is generally assumed to have started with the Romanian, or Danubian, principalities, similarly to how the history of Russia as a concrete country starts with Muscovy. Both of these histories are of late medieval origin, having come into being in the wake of the Mongol invasions of Europe. In both comparable cases, however, the concrete starting point is not the same as the ethnologically related spiritual precursor from which the original states derived their patronage. In the case of Russia, the spiritual precursor was the Kievan Rus’, which was situated in present-day Ukraine. Read more …

Libertarian freedoms are not incompatible with a strong commitment to in-group white identity politics.

English original here

Civilizující génius evropského člověka byl tak mocný, že se mu na čas podařilo zkrotit dokonce i válku samotnou. Ne každou válku lze ale vybojovat civilizovaně – jen ty mezi civilizovanými evropskými státy. Pravidla svazující válku se nevztahovala na války proti nestátním subjektům, jako v případě koloniálních válek proti divochům, občanské války a revoluce, v nichž se ocitá v sázce samotný stát, či nepravidelná válka proti partyzánům a guerillám, kterým se zabývá Schmittovo dílko Teorie partyzána (1962). 1] Read more …
