Celebrity intellectual Jordan Peterson has written a blog post, “’On the So-Called ‘Jewish Question’,” the inner quotes indicating he doesn’t think this is a real issue—something that only “reactionary conspiracy theorists” would propose.  His blog includes a link to Nathan Cofnas’s criticism of The Culture of Critique. No links to my replies—which may provide a clue about his intellectual honesty.

Indeed, one must wonder about the seriousness of someone who thinks he can settle an issue that has gotten the attention of some of the most celebrated thinkers in Western history with an 1100-word blog post.

Re-Visiting An Amendment to the Constitution: Averting the Decline and Fall of America

Amendment to the Constitution: Averting the Decline and Fall of America

Word Count 20,157

[Editor’s Note: The daily call for ‘change’ in the heart of the West, mostly by cultural-marxists, and honest ‘radical leftists’, those that bear the brunt of the common acceptance of revolutionary conduct and philosophy, has markedly become a part of the national dialogue in recent years. While this dialogue never really went away, the change in tactics by the right of center or White Nationalists/Alt-right milieu, has also changed in tenor and delivery.

Some of these changes have produced fruit, and some have withered on the vine.

The momentum of the Right, as opposed to ‘conservatives’ has, once again, run into the cul-de-sac of  ‘public action’ versus that of the mendacious and tedious world of legality, that is, Institutional legality. This is a political machine, mostly. The common-law of the Anglo-Saxon, precedent has, in the past 50 years, taken second-place to those who parse the elements of Law, and substitute those laws, or rather, insert these laws, to coalesce one political party against  the other.

Law and Institution, however, is part of the reality that Nationalists find themselves.

What to Do?

Below is a Proposed Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, presented around 1985, and made a small, yet visceral circuit, for a a decade. It makes interesting reading. The philosophy and intent, however, if taken at face value, is still a wake-up call. However one discerns this presentation, it is the right time, at least in the United States, to re-visit this proposition. We lean, once again, on the Work of Frank L. DeSilva, of which this is a partial excerpt, and thank him for his efforts.

Amendment to the Constitution:

Averting the Decline and

Fall of America

PREFACE

When the fate of a nation is imperiled from within its own ranks, and from aliens who have joined its ranks, and within the space of one or two generations, the society established by its forefathers has been riven from its frame, the guardians of that nation must take action to defend their people from their own destructive elements and repair their defects, or be held responsible before God and man for their inaction. America is such a nation; the 80’s are a part of such a generation and our local elected officials are the guardians of whom I speak.

The purpose of this text is to remind this generation of its obligations to its country, to enlighten it in some measure as to its defects and destructive elements, and to present a plan to correct them. Subjects discussed herein may be considered by some to be sensitive and even outrageous, but the incensed and outraged will be those who by their action or at times by their very presence within the nation were themselves outrageous and controversial twenty years ago.1 The course of action recommended by this text is a constitutional amendment presented to the several states through a convention called by Congress upon petition by the several states through their legislatures, who would have the foremost responsibility for action, that this text is primarily directed.

Evola’s Nietzschean Ethics: A Code of Conduct for the Higher Man in Kali Yuga

Evola’s Nietzschean Ethics:
A Code of Conduct for the Higher Man in Kali Yuga

5,808 words

The subtitle of the English translation of Julius Evola’s Ride the Tiger (Cavalcare la Tigre) promises that it offers “A Survival Manual for the Aristocrats of the Soul.”[1] As a result, one comes to the work with the expectation that it will constitute a kind of “self-help book” for Traditionalists, for “men against time.” One expects that Evola will offer moral support and perhaps even specific instructions for revolting against the modern world. Unfortunately, the subtitle proves misleading. Ride the Tiger is primarily devoted to an analysis of aspects of the present age of decline (the Kali Yuga): critiques of relativism, scientism, modern art, modern music, and of figures like Heidegger and Sartre; discussions of the decline of marriage, the relation between the sexes, drug use, and so forth. Many of the points Evola makes in this volume are made in his other works, sometimes at greater length and more lucidly.

Jordan Peterson and ‘The Sin of Pride’

The Sin of Pride

2,104 words

I like Dr. Jordan Peterson. I have watched almost all of his YouTube videos, and listened to many of his interviews. I even have a ticket to one of his upcoming events.  He explains complex religious and psychological concepts in a way that is intellectually satisfying. Often these are truths that I believed but could not explain how or why. His explorations of Carl Jung and ancient literature—closely paralleling the work of Joseph Campbell—make reading more enjoyable and exciting. He helps make learning easier for students. There is no higher praise I can think of to offer a professor.

His prominence, however, does not make him infallible. In his applications of ancient archetypal truths to modern contexts—a difficult task for even the wisest among us—Peterson has mischaracterized the arguments for White Nationalism, and collective identity in general. It is a fairly typical criticism of collective identity, and so it is worth looking at a demonstrative quotation with a magnifying glass.

In one recent instance, Dr. Peterson was presented with the following quote from Dr. Ricardo Duchesne:

Song of Albion

[Note: This is an excerpt from Song of Albion, a Work penned by the Author many years ago. It is a ‘historical’ Work, insofar as the flow of History has passed the original draft with many  an un-foreseen occurance in the Life of the West. Strange, however, Truth seems to care little of our accounting of Time, and this Work was prescient, indeed, much more has happened in the West, which proves the validity of this, dare We say it, Prophetic analysis. The Staff]

In today’s world of overreaching denial of Western race-culture, the almost demonic zeal with which our young are denied their own history, in favor of the non-western, is more than dismal – it is an evil thing, a thing which, by most accounts, has changed the very actualizations of the children of the West, for their heroes are not of their stock, their perceptions of beauty, counterfeits of the real expression of their future mates, the roles of masculinity and nobility being given to superficial, banal, and sociologically different types of men and women. This is more than dangerous, and will, in all likelihood, be discounted by many, but it is always a good thing to prove a postulation: So, I urge you, the reader – no, I dare you, to look to your own children, compare them with yourself, and then to your father or grandfather, and see just how far they, and you, have strayed. I dare you.

First Awakening Conference: Living Within A Myth

Ruuben Kaalep

1,974 words

[Editor’s Note:

This is the text of Ruuben Kaalep’s talk from the first Awakening Conference, which was held in Helsinki on April 8, 2018.]

Our ancestors knew that we live within a myth. This myth has not ended with the passing of our ancestors; this myth never ended. Deep inside we know the magic that is our people, our nation, our tribe, our race, our culture, our ethnos. What we are is magical, because all our folk songs, legends, mythology, all the mysteries about our ancestors point to something. They all point to someplace where we come from and where we will return. Awakening is understanding that we never left this place. The national awakening, this spring that Europe is beginning to experience, that Estonia is experiencing, that Finland will experience, this national awakening that we live to bring about is magic itself, it is myth itself.

The Death Of France?

“There is no such thing as French culture. There is culture in France, and iisdiverse.”—Emmanuel Macron, globalist party candidate for the French presidency

“We’re just going to have to get used to living with terrorism.”— The same douche

No matter how you feel about the French, it can’t be fun choosing between open borders guy and commie lady. You think I’m joking? The press keeps howling that Marine Le Pen is further to the Right than Donald Trump . . . except that she wants more social spending, and Macron is the one who wants a more free-market labor economy. Hmmmm, this is tough . . .

White Nationalist Position on Medicine and Health Care.

The White Nationalist knows that of all public contact with professional members of the community, the Medical profession is the most important and personal of contacts that community members make in their lives – the possible exception to this would be the clergy – but the former is, by far, the most permanent and necessary element in a persons living reality.

Long before the present discussion of ‘national healthcare’, the white nationalist was inculcating that sense of duty, obligation, and compassion for members of his ethno-state; this did not start out as exhaustive, but was rife with the sense of duty and understanding that, firstly, the care of our newborn was paramount, as the necessity of new life begs the question of how best to prepare and pay for extended members of young families; secondly, the belief that our elderly were of the utmost extension of our sense of obligation to these persons, our Mothers and Fathers who, in their later years, deserve the honour and respect of their children (i.e. their folk-community) for the sacrifices (whether real or imagined) they made over the duration of their lives so that, in the end, their way of life and that of their children, might be handed to future generations for the maintenance of a brighter and long-enduring future.

In either case, Medical professionals are necessary.

Soft Revolution: Part I

Soft Revolution

Part I

Drip, drip, drip.

Nothing like a little water, soft, nourishing, and consistent, to make a person realize the value and merit of a healthy drought.

Aesthetically, what of a broad expanse of Water, surrounded by undulating shoreline, outcroppings of boulders, natural debris, Pine trees, and blue sky? Magnificent, no?

Who wouldn’t want to swim, relax, or Fish in a venue such as this?

What of a Mountain stream, flowing steady, cascading brilliantly over a mountainous ridge, spilling outward and downwards, filling the basin below? What of the its great cousin, that Ocean of water, filling the great abyss of our natural home, giving us food, natural power, unlimited, and avenues of commerce and social contact?

We understand and feel some natural affinity to this placid description, knowing as well, that with a little help from Mother nature, a little change in atmospheric conditions, and viola, this placid context can soon change into tempest, Storm, and destruction.

Such is the placid life of a ‘drop’ of Water.

Containing such a valuable commodity, in the day to day routines of Life, as well, provide the individual an opportunity to share with the larger group, that Community, which sustains them both. There is a certain equanimity to this formula.

Remember, this all started with a single drip.

Such can be, and in most cases, is, the beginnings of change, of certain conditions necessary for rapid change; for Revolution.
