Five Minutes with the Average Voter

Phil Eiger Newmann, The Arena, 2020.

1,431 words

Any belief, no matter how desperately well-intentioned, in the efficacy and wisdom of democracy depends on the fundamentally flawed notion that the average voter is anything loftier than an easily frightened and brainwashed lab rat. Read more …

The Only Honest Person in the Room

Donald Trump and Linda Lee Tarver

1,948 words

During the ongoing proceedings stemming from the fraudulent 2020 US presidential election, most of the actors involved have eschewed the topic of race. This is both good and bad. It’s good because if one side avers that race has been a decisive factor in this controversy, the other side would go ballistic and distract from the cases President Trump and his allies are bringing before the courts, the legislatures, and the American public.

Building Coalitions

5,389 words

The demographics problem is a growing threat, perhaps the greatest one facing Western civilization. Minorities have been bloc voting for ages, of course. The problem is that when whites finally muster the political will to stand together and take our own side, we might be less than half the population by then. In an electoral system, Read more …

Notes on Populism

Norman Rockwell, Study for “Freedom of Speech”

3,380 words

Populism seeks to rescue popular government from corrupt elites. Naturally, the elites strike back. The most common accusation from elite commentators is that populism is “anti-democratic.” As Yascha Mounk frames it, populism is “the people vs. democracy.” I argue that populism is not anti-democratic, but it is anti-liberal. (See Donald Thoresen’s review of Mounk’s The People vs. Democracy here.)

Many critics of populism accuse it of being a form of white identity politics, Read more …

Chinese Handcuffs

922 words

Imagine, if you will, the perfect system of torture and restraint. A device so effective that the more forcefully you resist it, the tighter it grips you, and the more hopeless your chance of escape. Such a contraption does in fact exist. You might recognize it as the anodyne but frustrating toy called “Chinese handcuffs.” Read more …

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 …

What is Populism?

Brotherhood

Of the many long-lost texts by Francis Parker Yockey that will be included in our upcoming anthology of Yockey’s shorter writings, The World in Flames, one is a four-part essay entitled “Brotherhood.” Kerry Bolton and I had to search far and wide to find a complete copy of the text, as we announced during our search earlier this year, but find it we finally did, and we offer it here as a prelude to our patient readers who have been awaiting the finalized volume. The Preface is by Dr. Bolton. — John Morgan Read more …

Démocrature:
Nazi Concept Welcomed into French Language

It’s that time of year. The French dictionaries Le Petit Larousse and Le Petit Robert (don’t ask me why they are called “petit,” they are huge) are adding various neologisms and foreign loanwords to our beloved langue de Céline.

Fašismus v protikladu k tomu demokratickému předkládá svůj vlastní alternativní obraz člověka i pojetí svobody, od onoho velebeného demokratického velice odlišné.

Demokracie svobodu nijak neomezuje, snad kromě zákazu škodit ostatním. Read more …

Klást správné otázky aneb jak se vyhnout smrtícím nástrahám Trumpových polovičatých řešení

2,158 slov

English original here

Všichni jsme moc dobře věděli, že to ani nemůže být jinak: liberálové se v následujících čtyřech letech budou pohoršeně snažit zablokovat jakýkoliv krok prezidenta Trumpa, ať už bude ve skutečnosti seberozumnější či sebenepatrnější. Sledovat v příštích letech liberály, jak se rozhořčují nad novými a novými údajnými políčky lidské slušnosti, bude nepochybně nevyčerpatelným zdrojem pobavení. Read more …

Ethno-Statal Speculations

575 words

Suffrage should be granted to married fathers and mothers with children, who are not social misfits. For these have shown responsibility, have rendered service to the community by perpetuating its lineage, and have a stake in its future.

Perhaps suffrage should be proportional to the number of children raised.
