REVIEW: FAUSTIAN MAN IN A MULTICULTURAL AGE

Faustian Man in a Multicultural Age
By Ricardo Duchesne
Arktos, 239 Pages

Reviewed by Rémi Tremblay

I had the chance to meet Professor Ricardo Duchesne a few years ago, before he launched the Council of Euro-Canadians blog. Thanks to his professorial approach, he made me grasp the depth of Antonio Gramsci's thoughts and how we should use his approach if we were to have success in reversing the current dominant culture. I am not ashamed to say that this meeting was one of the most influential ones in my own intellectual development. It is why I was particularly thrilled to learn that he had decided to pen a new book, his first one since he started being involved in the Canadian Alternative Right, if we can use that term. His book Faustian Man in a Multicultural Age met my expectations.

NAMELESS PODCAST: THE TRAGEDY OF SEX

In his latest "Nameless" Podcast, Andy Nowicki talks about what makes him a sort of "antisexualist" (in spite of being a raging red-blooded heterosexual and a married man with children to boot).

TRUMP: A POEM


He was our boy back in '16,
but then he tomahawked Assad.
Now, cucked, we want to vent our spleen
at this man who is just a bawd.

WEIRD SCIENCE

Bill Nye: the freaky-deaky sexual perversity propagandist guy?
Bill Nye became known to most American schoolchildren of the '90s as "The Science Guy," a lovable, bowtied eccentric who would entertainingly display various scientific principles, like, say, friction, or gravity, or electricity, or other generally unquestioned factual phenomena.

COLD, ICE COLD


Philosopher Nick Land talks about the transition that the West is currently experiencing as a shift from being nice to being more realistic. “Nice” is like bourgeois values: offend no one, befriend everyone, and always gesture vividly toward your acceptance of all people, behaviors and ideas.

Naturally, this niceness is fatal to any group because it opposes the idea of standards, as well as the basic notion of finding some things to be true and others not and therefore unacceptable as answers to certain questions. To be nice, one must believe that all people are basically the same and thus are “universal,” or uniformly good for the most part.

The problem with nice is that it is a form of competition. If your neighbors are nicer than you, you are seen as a less desirable business partner, mate, customer, friend, coworker, and seller. When one person on the block goes down the path of nice, the others must “keep up with the Joneses” and virtue signal their niceness as well.

WHY LEFTISTS SHOULDN'T HAVE FREE SPEECH


I enjoy watching the Youtuber Sargon of Akkad, and in truth prefer his content to most of the explicitly Alt-Right content on Youtube. This is because Sargon, while a far cry from the vibrant Middle-Easterner suggested by his name, does a job that most of us jaded Alt-Righters are unwilling (if not exactly unable) to do. He rakes through the arguments and actions of leftists, measures them against the abstract principles of democracy, non-racism and individual liberty, and explains over and over again just how far the Left is deviating from these principles.

HITLER AS AN EXPRESSION OF GERMAN "BAD FORM"


Today we enter “The Twelve Days of Hitler,” the period between the anniversary of the birth of the Adolf Hitler (20th April) and the anniversary of the announcement of his death (1st May). It’s a bit like Black History Month for 1488ers, but many other people also take an interest.

One problem with evaluating Hitler is that, for many people, he is all that they know about German history, so he exists in kind of de-contextualized, detached, and over-dramatized space that is more mythic than historical. This may be one reason he is viewed as either uniquely good or, more commonly, uniquely evil. To get beyond this, it is important to see him in the context of the wider flow of German history.

When considering him in this way, the thing that strikes me most about him is not how exceptional he was, but instead how consistent he was with the rest of German history.

BOWIE: THE CULTURIST REVIEW



To make a culturist critique is to tie an event or person to larger cultural trends. David Bowie (1947-2016) symbolizes the West’s recent progressive cultural apex. After all, he led the charge into gender bending and then married a black Muslim woman. But, these acts stand in stark contrast to the West’s developing tsunami of masculine cultural protectionism.

Matthew Arnold (1822-1888) – the first person to be called a ‘culturist’ practicing ‘culturism,’ – asserted that the West cycled from expansionist, flexible, (progressive) ‘Hellenism’ to contracting, law-abiding, tough, ‘Hebraism.’ The Hellenic periods lack discipline, the Hebraic ones lack ‘sweetness and light.’ In his time, Arnold saw his England as being too Hebraic and France as too Hellenistic.

We in the Alt-Lite / Alt-Right fringe, foresee a coming reckoning that may involve considerable violence. Currently, the West is experiencing a Hellenic peak; soon we will adopt the Hebraic traits of hating foreign cultures, and again accept that successful cultures usually see violence as an honorable duty. Bowie’s death represents the death of the expansionist Hellenic period, and so the dawn of the Hebraic contraction.

THERESA MAY DECIDES TO GO TO THE COUNTRY: START COUNTING THE SPOONS


Theresa May has announced that she wants an early General Election on 8 June. However, this is no longer a simple matter of the PM going to see the Queen and requesting that Parliament be dissolved and an election called. Under the Fixed Term Parliaments Act, Mrs May will require a two thirds majority in the House of Commons to vote to call an early election.

The odds are on May getting a two thirds majority because the leaders of the Labour and LibDem parties, Jeremy Corbyn and Tim Farron have both welcomed the idea of an early election. However, the position is not quite as straightforward as it might seem. The two thirds majority in the Commons is not two thirds of those who vote, but two thirds of the entire Commons personnel, that is, 417 of the 650 MPs. If there is a heavy abstention – the coward’s way out for an MP – May could struggle to reach 417 voting in favour.

THE SOUND OF THE CROWD


About a decade ago, I identified the phenomenon of Crowdism whereby individuals demand to be freed from consequences of their actions, and band together into groups as a sort of mutual aid society that will attack anyone who doesn’t agree. This forms a hive mind that snowballs and soon creates a monolithic, paranoid Utopian groupthink.

The point of Crowdism is not that evil people exist, although they do, or that people are tempted by evil, which they are. It’s that stupid ideas exist and they sound good, and that in crowds, people bow down to the judgment of others and go along with the herd, resulting in destructive and illusory “solutions.” Socializing makes us dumb because we obey the social standard, not the reality standard.

REVIEW: THE GAS CHAMBER OF SHERLOCK HOLMES

The Gas Chamber of Sherlock Holmes
By Samuel Crowell
Nine-Banded Books, 420 Pages

Reviewed by Matt Forney

The Holocaust is unique among historical events in that it’s the only one where questioning the official narrative is not allowed. You can speculate about what happened on the grassy knoll all day long, win a Pulitzer for denying the atrocities committed by the Soviet Union, and blame America for 9/11, but suggest that maybe, just maybe, the Germans weren’t cartoon villains bent on shoving every single Jew on Earth head-first into a smoldering oven and you suddenly become a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews. Being a Holocaust revisionist is illegal in many Western countries, and even in those where it is not, being tarred as a “denier” will almost certainly mean the end of your career and the ostracism of your peers.
Holocaust revisionism is lèse-majesté for the multicultural age.

THE HYMAN ROTH "ALLIANCE": IS THE DONALD GOING FULL GODFATHER II?


A Bitter Message of Faith


The Alt Right is all up in arms over Trump’s recent decision to attack the Assad Regime and possibly North Korea. Richard Spencer is happily denouncing "The Don" publicly for it, and many other Alt Right luminaries have done same. Some who even write here for this website. Many are saying, “Well, it’s been a good ride with Trump while it lasted," taking a 'drop the mic' or 'drop me off at the next station' approach to the Trump Train. All this over one petty air strike on a Muslim country. Funny for a bunch of supposed ‘fascists’!

Yes, this is a little "off script" from Trump’s previously stated agenda, as he had favoured cooperating in Syria with Assad and Putin in order to go after ISIS. The upset in Alt Right circles is perhaps, understandable. But many in the Alt Right go a lot further. They have started to see a different Donald, one who is cucked and in the pocket of the Globalists, and may soon deserve the echoing parenthesis around (((his own name))). That too is possible, and that is why there has been this Alt-Right "dump the Trump" feeling this past week or so.

NO FOLLOW UP STRIKES AGAINST ASSAD: NORTH KOREA MAIN FOCUS FOR TRUMP

Korearing to war?


It's been a week now since Trump launched 59 cruise missiles against a Syrian air base in supposed retaliation for an alleged and unproven chemical attack on a town well behind the front line.

So, what exactly is going on?

It seems, at present, that this was a one-off strike and that Trump is in fact continuing the status quo that existed before the attack, whereb Russia supported the Assad government in fighting against Islamist rebels, while the US supported the SDF in its efforts against ISIS.

One of the great Jewish contributions to the world of politics is the idea of a dedicated but optional homeland for a particular race or ethnic group, like Israel is for the Jews.

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE SUFFERING GOD

An excerpt from the essay "The Suffering God and the Culture of Death," published in volume 2, issue 2 of The Christendom Review in 2010, an essay now included in Andy Nowicki's  2015 book Notes Before Death: Three Essays.

What are the full ramifications of the notion of God suffering as a man?


How to begin to describe the ramifications of this strange and moving idea (the Incarnation), which is the essence of the Christian faith? One is at a loss, because the profundity of the concept is beyond all words, and this is ironic, since it is all about a “Word” (in Greek, “Logos”) allegedly “made flesh.”

What does it say about the human race that God would consent to take human form? What does it say about human suffering that God became man in order to suffer the humiliation and grief, the mental and physical pain, the ignoble punishment of a common criminal, being flogged, stripped, and nailed to a cross to die?

Let us consider the full implications of the Incarnation in Christian theology.

AWKWARD ORIENTALS


Is Donald Trump United Airlines and Kim Jong Un Doctor Dao?



United Airlines made a massive mistake when they played "passenger roulette" the other day and selected to remove Dr. David Dao. Whether you want to call the Vietnamese medic pluckily stubborn or allude to possible "mental issues," Dao dug his feet in and refused to budge, leading to a messy display of violence by the flunkeys of the airline, and perhaps tarnishing its image forever. Dao will probably get a massive settlement but it will take billions to correct the bad image generated by this one incident.

FRIDAY, BLOODY FRIDAY: GIBSON'S "PASSION"

"By his stripes we are healed": Jim Caviezel as Jesus Christ in Gibson's gory "Passion" play. 


Twelve years ago, at the inception of the 2004 Lenten season, Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ was released into theaters worldwide. Passion had already attained notoriety due to a concerted media campaign—led by the Anti-Defamation League’s Abe Foxman as well as other assorted “usual suspects”—to condemn the violent, gory New Testament drama as “anti-Semitic.”

Passion’s overwhelming success at the box office provoked hand-wringing aplenty, as well as some brow-furrowing puzzlement, from the chattering classes. Judging from its content, one never would have thought that the film would hold such mass appeal. Nevertheless, anomalous circumstances predominated, leaving cultural critics scratching their heads, befuddled by what would prove to be the cinematic sensation of the "oughts" decade.

THE ROOT OF PROGRESSIVIST SIN


The ‘True Right’ is informed by many writers who oppose the materialist perspective which insists on reducing human conflict to a profit-and-loss struggle over economic resources. While much of modern orthodoxy insists on analysing human affairs through a “rational” prism better suited to comprehending the behaviour of food-seeking worms, these writers (who include, for example, Ricardo Duchesne in The Uniqueness of Western Civilisation) correctly stress the irrational struggle for prestige – recognition of one’s status, remembrance of one’s deeds, and above all, aggrandisement of one’s pride – as a determining factor in social conflict.

THE COST OF A TRUMP PRESIDENCY


Last Thursday’s wanton attack on a Syrian air field by the US and its bellicose actions toward North Korea have brought to the forefront the real cost of candidate Trump’s landslide victory last November.

TRUMP TACTICS

AN ANALYSIS OF RECURRING TACTICS, INDIVIDUAL STRATEGIES, AND LONG GAME OBJECTIVES


We heard from the media it was mathematically impossible for Trump to win, yet after winning that "impossible" battle against establishment money, his victory was rationalized as anyone could have beaten Clinton. Now we hear that Trump is "unhinged" and clueless, while the same media outlets discuss "dumb luck" and whether Trump might be some kind of "idiot genius." All the while, whispers of "4D chess" circulate the darker corners of the internet

FASCIST PIGS PODCAST: TRUMP, EMPIRE, & 1984



Keith Preston joins Alex Fontana on The Fascist Pigs podcast to discuss Trump's neocon turn with his attack on Syria.

IF THE NEOCONS ARE WRONG, WHY ARE THE RUSSIANS ACTING AS IF THEY ARE RIGHT?


Trump struck Syria, and the Alt Right lost its mind. They had hoped that Trump would go farther to the Alt Right, when in fact he has always been a moderate who likes cultivating opposites under his roof so he can pick the right decision on a case-by-case basis. Key fact: the man still believes in democracy and diversity. He is step one of a hundred back toward health.

By the same token, it is foolish to describe this as a strike on Syria when it was actually a warning to Russia. Trump blew up a few older planes at an airfield where Russian personnel had been present. He gave the Syrians time to remove all equipment and people they cared about. He warned the Russians in advance. This was not a military strike, but a signal to Putin: go no further.

NAMELESS PODCAST: BANNON/KUSHNER: TIFF FOR TAT?



For the past week, the media has breathlessly reported an acrimonious feud between two of President Trump's central advisors: his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and his former chief of staff (and ex-Breitbart editor) Steve Bannon.

SHORTPOD (6): TRUMP, YOU CANNOT BE SYRIAOUS



A brief podcast by Alternative Right chief editor Colin Liddell, reporting on the site and events in the news. This time the focus is on Trump's decision to attack Syria and reopen the question of regime change.

DONALD TRUMP ISN'T YOUR DADDY, AND HE CAN'T FIX WHAT'S BROKEN IN AMERICA

Originally published here in October, 2016. Relevant again in the light of renewed Trump skepticism.  

by Jack Donovan

British journalist Milo Yiannopoulos frequently refers to Donald Trump as “daddy.”

Milo introduces himself as, “the most fabulous supervillain on the Internet,” so calling a Presidential candidate “daddy” is consistent with his own quirky brand of camp conservatism.

I don’t know of anyone else who calls Trump “daddy.” But when I see my peers caught up in stadium-style slave wave that is ready to crown a shifty, wheeling and dealing New York City businessman as America’s savior and “emperor god-king”…

…“daddy” does seem uncomfortably appropriate.

BRITAIN STRIPS JIHADIST OF PASSPORT DESPITE SUPPLYING WEAPONS TO HIS ISLAMIST GROUP IN SYRIA



The youngest son of Abu Hamza has been stripped of his British passport after travelling to Syria to fight with jihadists. The Home Office has withdrawn the passport of Sufiyan Mustafa, 22, leaving him effectively stateless and stranded in Syria.

His Egyptian father, now 58, is currently in jail in the US after being convicted of a series of terrorism offences and has been serving his sentence in solitary confinement at a high security jail in Florence, Colorado.

HOW SYRIA CAN WIN ITS WAR WITH AMERICA

Assad points to where the war is heading.


It's happened. Trump has done the unforgivable and gone to war with Syria. There seems to be a lot of anger and sheer disappointment in the Alt-Right about this. But the Alt-Right is nothing if not "dialectical," i.e. able to step back, appreciate the multifaceted ironies of the situation, and look at the bigger picture, and the bigger picture here would be the chance this incident opens up to inflict a defeat not on Trump or America—although that might also be involved—but on the whole mythic apparatus of American interventionism and thus globalism.

The first irony that stands out is that Trump/ America/ the Cult of Interventionism is using this action to "look strong," when in fact it was the act of a weakling and coward.

THE REAL REASON TRUMP BOMBED SYRIA: NOT DEAD KIDDIES



Many are wondering about the surprising change in US-policy that has occurred in Syria. This is supposedly due to an alleged gas attack by Syrian national forces against a rebel-held town.

This is a childishly simple theory, especially as there is at least a lot of doubt about who is responsible for the attack, and a gas attack can add little to the horrors already under way in Syria.

A more feasible explanation is that the US is changing its position to adjust to the changing military situation on the ground.

GAVRILO PRINCIP: AUTOMATIC SCHMUCK

This piece was originally posted on the 100th anniverary of Princip's assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdiand, an event which is widely agreed to have touched off World War I. It is reposted today, on the 100 year anniversary of the United States' entrance in that tragic, protracted, and seemingly pointless conflict, on the day following U.S. airstrikes on Syria, an event which some fear might touch off World War 3.

"Baby, you're a firework"... Gavrilo Princip, archduke slayer.

"I’m on a mission, cuz now I’ve had it
I watch their system, then spit right at it!
I was born and plated, a schmuck they created
I’ll explode, I’ll erode! Yeah, I’ll break your fuckin’ code
Cuz I’m an automatic schmuck… with a tendency to rock!"
The Hives
An assassin commits murder, but not just any murder. He kills not for the thrill—though killing may indeed be thrilling for him—but because it is something he must do, either because it is his paid profession, or simply because he views such a task as his grisly responsibility.

THE GAS CLOUD OF WESTERN INTERVENTION

Originally published at The Occidental Observer four years ago, during the last attempt to sell a Neocon War in Syria.


“Gas! Gas! Gas! Nasty, wicked pois’nous gasssssssssss!!!!!!!”

There! Is your knee jerking yet? Have you started to salivate and get sweaty palmed, and developed the requisite insatiable craving for moralistic war against the media-designated demons responsible for such unbelievable, unique, and unprecedented evil?

No? Then, your conditioning will have to be continued, the voltage upped, so that, whenever necessary, your leaders and betters will be able to sell you another ugly little war in which the mighty, hollow West can bomb some destabilized little patch of naturally-occurring chaos or tyranny back into tyranny or chaos again.

RICE GETTING NICE AND CRISPY

The heat is on.


Susan Rice, the former national security adviser, who apparently used the CIA to spy on the Trump campaign, is starting to feel the heat, with growing demands that she be subpoenaed and investigated.

Just so everyone understands this tricky business, the CIA, in order to protect Americans, routinely conducts wide-ranging surveillance of foreigners. Any US citizens caught in their surveillance dragnet have their privacy protected by having their identities "masked" in intelligence reports.

#PIZZAGATE: PEDO SLANG AND 'UNSPEAKABLE RITES'

Note: this passage is taken from a longer work I am in the process of composing, on the meta-significance of #Pizzagate. See earlier-published excerpts of this work here and here. For the distressing backstory regarding the little girl in the picture below, see here.

Appropriate T-shirt for a little girl?

In some circles, much is made of the use of the term “goyim,” “gentile,” and “shiksa,” by certain devout or tribalist-minded Jews. Use of these terms displays the classic ingroup/outgroup mentality par excellence, as they are words which cannot be uttered except with contempt. Of course, ethnocentrism obtains in nearly every culture, including the most “tolerant” ones. Where multiculturalism is the enforced norm, as is increasingly the case in the Western world, the derided outsider is he who wishes to remain among his own kind… if his own kind is some subspecies of white, that is.

THE DEATH OF SEX


If there is a problem, it is only logical to yearn for its solution. If your house is on fire, who would not wish for the flames to be doused? If you have a disease, who would not crave an appropriate antidote, even if there were none available. A problem always implies a solution, even a hypothetical one, and even when the solution is worse than the problem, or the cure worse than the disease – that too is simply a problem calling for its own solution.

One of the most intractable problems of humanity is sexuality and its various aspects.

Firstly, it has been essential to human propagation, and for this reason it has been exempt from any truly radical critique – except on the lunatic fringe. Secondly, it has been associated with some of the highest and noblest aspects of human nature, and inextricably intertwined with them. When purified, rarefied, and sublimated, the crude sexual instinct becomes the foundation of such laudable elements of human nature as chivalry, family feeling, masculine honour, and even feminine chastity. Indeed, many of our traditional virtues have developed in symbiosis with – or more accurately in direct opposition to – our sexual natures. To strike at sex, therefore, is to a certain extent to strike at humanity.

WELCOME TO THE NEW ROCKY EUROPE AND WHY THAT'S (PROBABLY) A GOOD THING

Meet the New Europe, same as the old one.


The great thing about BREXIT are the unforeseen consequences. Nobody can really be sure of what the ultimate outcome of that historic vote by the British people will be. But one result seems to be a revival of inter-European rivalry, something that has both a good and bad side. 

On the plus side it strengthens identity, but on the negative side it might even see a return of military conflict between some European nations. This too is not necessarily a bad thing, as long as the causality count is low. This is because it will stimulate a more masculine and militaristic culture in the various European nations that will have enormous benefits for societies that are incredibly "cucked" and "feminized" at the moment. (Being Alt-Right means being able to take a wider view of things).

The first example of BREXIT leading in this direction is the growing rift between Spain and Britain over Gibraltar, which has now also become mixed up with issues of Scottish and Catalan secession.
