The Historical Jesus: Tradition and Metapolitics Eternity, the original Jesus Movement, the foundation for Christianity, is arguably the most effective metapolitical movement in the history of the world. What might Traditionalists seek to defeat modernity and restore sanity, through the practice of metapolitics, learn from it? The following essay is my feeble attempt at doing […]
Alexander Dugin and Political Platonism Matthew Raphael Johnson brings another broadcast on the misunderstood work of Alexander Dugin. Plato is the foundation of western thought and western religion. His work is the intellectual scaffolding of ancient Christianity. It is based around the idea of unity, or the truth as one. God is truth, beyond space […]
This week’s broadcast Dr Matthew Raphael Johnson clarifies and expounds on some of the points made in previous broadcasts on theology. week. These are some of the most fundamental issues man can face, so dealing with them is a delicate project. Rarely are these basic issues dealt with properly and rationally.
The American academic world has been hostile to Solzhenitsyn for his anti-communism and Russian nationalism. Most reviews of his political works have been hostile or seek to make a “liberal” out of him, a common tactic. His social and political theory revolves around the dialectic between freedom and the state. The state here isn’t just any coercive power, but a state that derives from the Enlightenment, the mind of science and the belief that man can dominate nature for “his” benefit.
The 1st to 3rd centuries AD were a time of religious resurgence and upheaval in the ancient Near East. In Rome, the cults of Mithras, Isis and Serapis, once considered to be mere exoticisms, were becoming more widely accepted among the Roman middle and upper classes. Second Temple Judaism had suffered a rift with the crucifixion of Christ and the missionary work of Paul and the Apostles had turned Christianity, a once obscure group of Jewish schismatics, into a messianic force that would eventually become the state religion of the Roman Empire. Among the various mystery cults and apocalyptic movements (of which there were many) that had emerged in this climate, a curious religious movement whose adherents called themselves gnostikoi or “Gnostics” began to emerge around the time of the early 1st century and whose ideas would arguably survive up until the end of the 4th century.
Death to the World This world is dead. My ascension towards a better version of what my Will to Power pushes me to become, testing me against the limitations of my own physique, the fragility of my psyche and the external influences of the “Empire of Nothingness” is in every single meaningful action I make […]
While incorrect on the nature of the Confederate secession, he was right on southern virtues and the results of the Civil War. His primary concern was natural law, not specific political agendas. While opposed to slavery with great vehemence, he loathed the notion of immediate slave emancipation without land or education.
[Editors Note: This article was originally published at Transcendental Titans on April 9th, 2018.] 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 […]
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. It is a death cult that has inverted every positive aspect of the European spirit and turned our nature against us. Where once technology was used in the service of the betterment of our lives, it now constrains us – with surveillance, with oppressive state power, with the speedy importation of our lower paid and more co-operative replacements. It does not need to be this way. It is not bricks, steel and glass that have made our world ugly but the pernicious and warped ideology of the architects that built them. Therefore, we are not engaged in a battle with a point in time, we are locked in a struggle for survival with a set of alien ideas. The particular must be championed against the global. The metaphysical good must be pitted against relativistic nihilism. The nation must triumph against the international. The European spirit must not be subsumed by the Islamic.
One of the main causes of the nihilism of our times is that Man has not found his Spirit of the Age – his Zeitgeist. The Greek poet Hesiod divided the Ages of Man into five quasi-mythological epochs, e.g.; the Gold, Silver, Bronze, Heroic and Iron Ages. Likewise, the Hindus believed in four corresponding Ages or […]
Transcendental Titans: The Identitarian Credo To the uninitiated, to be an identitarian in this age seems to be an anachronistic and borderline masochistic endeavour. Every day presents more evidence that the notion of having a fixed historical identity is a dying one. From the removal of the Confederate flag from civic centres across the South […]
