The Choice of Alcibiades

It has often been said that the countries in which we live are no longer the one's in which we grew up in. Political corruption, loss of faith in the democratic process and, of course, the ever present reality of rapid demographic change have made the nations of the West almost unrecognizable from what they were even a mere generation ago. The…

Acolytes in the Temple of Iron

  You may admire the past – but you wouldn’t want to live in it. This is the most basic repudiation of traditionalism. Life before the modern era was painful, squalid and short. It is thus self-evident that to any progressively minded individual that the crowning achievement of modernity is the longevity and painlessness of contemporary existence.…

Sparks from the Golden Anvil

Our fight is not fundamentally about the fact that modernity has forced us to live an urban, technological life. It is about the fact modernity is bent on killing us and expunging our record from this earth.

The Faustian Soul

After Achilles had defeated Hector in battle, his chariot dragged his corpse by the heels. Such was the hubristic spirit of our Indo-European ancestors — warrior nomads who conquered and ruled peoples from Europe to Asia, millennia before anyone had heard of Alexander. But the same spirit which restlessly pursued immortality in fame and glory would…

Ride for Ruin: European Kamikaze

Everything is broken. We have been so utterly severed from our cultural and spiritual moorings that the damage is irreparable. Our administrative, social and political systems are now in terminal decline. Demographically, Europeans who once constituted a quarter of the global population a mere sixty years ago are now barely more than a numerical…

Reflections on War

Peace, even if it is a valuable and beautiful ideal, is just that: an ideal. Universal peace is a utopia since there will always be those who do not want peace. As the famous Roman saying goes: "Se vis Pacem, para bellum". But in the same way, war is also a calamity situation. War should not be done for pleasure or ambition. The real meaning of war…
