The Lost History of Liberalism From Ancient Rome to the Twenty-First Century | Helena Rosenblatt – Introduction

I have been reading and thinking about liberalism for so long it would be impossible to list and thank all the scholars whose work has informed and shaped mine. HELENA ROSENBLATT, ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The derision of this term, Liberalism, is unacceptable and ignorant to us, and ought to be fought against. AMERICAN, know your philosophical roots Continue reading The Lost History of Liberalism From Ancient Rome to the Twenty-First Century | Helena Rosenblatt – Introduction

Gordon S. Wood on Republicanism and Monarchy in the Eighteenth-Century

“Educated people of varying political persuasions celebrated republicanism for its spirit, its morality, its freedom, its sense of friendship and duty, and its vision of society. Republicanism as a set of values and a form of life was much too pervasive, comprehensive, and involved with being liberal and enlightened to be seen as subversive or Continue reading Gordon S. Wood on Republicanism and Monarchy in the Eighteenth-Century

“I Believe in Philosophy” | Hypatia of Alexandria in Agora and History

“There have been times when “a considerable portion of enlightened minds” were taught in our schools. Such times there were in India, Persia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. But, as I remarked (…) the adept is the efflorescence of his age, and comparatively few ever appear in a single century. Earth is the battle-ground of moral no Continue reading “I Believe in Philosophy” | Hypatia of Alexandria in Agora and History

“Ain’t That Peculiar,” Marvin Gaye | The Soul of America | Hopes for a Better Future

I take every song and relate it to life, and people sometimes think I must be in love listening to them.

My love for soul music goes back to Continue reading “Ain’t That Peculiar,” Marvin Gaye | The Soul of America | Hopes for a Better Future

Abraham Lincoln Letter to Joshua F. Speed lays into Anti-Immigrant Nativist Party ‘Know-Nothing’

“We are the Party of Lincoln.” HOUSE MINORITY LEADER KEVIN MCCARTHY (R-CA) No, you’re not. You are false, as if entirely alien to the very name you claim. You delude the members, and disrespect the origins of the Republican Party. Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we Continue reading Abraham Lincoln Letter to Joshua F. Speed lays into Anti-Immigrant Nativist Party ‘Know-Nothing’

Fox News and El Paso Gunman are on same Page: Fox Repeats Shooter’s Manifesto Verbatim

Fox News has echoed talking points from the El Paso shooter’s manifesto regarding a Hispanic “invasion” for some time. The attempt of Trump to relate the Dayton’s shooter’s left-wing sentiments to Elizabeth Warren is a cunning distraction and a deceitful comparison. “Will leaders sit back as invasion happens?” TUCKER CARLSON, COMING TO AMERICA SEGMENT Perhaps, Continue reading Fox News and El Paso Gunman are on same Page: Fox Repeats Shooter’s Manifesto Verbatim

The Occult Significance and Theory on Blood underlying Blood Rites and Blood Magic | Theosophical Notes

“Blood is a Very Special Fluid” FAUST, ACT I, SCENE 4. Before entering onto this subject, there is information to take into consideration first that most may not consider. Occultism is treated still as a fringe subject, when taken seriously. It is however, serious to consider the fact, that such ideas have affected and impacted Continue reading The Occult Significance and Theory on Blood underlying Blood Rites and Blood Magic | Theosophical Notes

Mario Palmieri on the True Goal of Fascism in relation to the Spiritual: Four Cardinal Points and National Heroism

“Never before, to be sure, had a social and political system advanced such claims upon the inner world of man as this claim of Fascism to determine for him the form of conduct…” MARIO PALMIERI Darkness is upon the land, and there is no hero among the people in the country, and it is because Continue reading Mario Palmieri on the True Goal of Fascism in relation to the Spiritual: Four Cardinal Points and National Heroism

Henryk Gorecki – Symphony No. 2, Op. 31: “Copernican”

First, it sounds as if war has begun against the gods. Then, like the laboring of a soul in profound melancholic sorrow, among the bones and bloody river of the slain. . . .a heart-wrenching saudade. . . .severed in pieces. . . .and far from one’s god. Henryk Gorecki – Symphony No. 3, Op. Continue reading Henryk Gorecki – Symphony No. 2, Op. 31: “Copernican”

An Indestructible Element in the Völkishe and Fascist Ideal

I never use the term “Nazi.” The false belief many adopt, for no true reason, is that Benito Mussolini was a mere opportunist, and Adolf Hitler’s “National Socialism” a trick. It does not seem the case. It is imagined, that somehow Hitler sat shuffling through a dictionary all-day deliberately looking for runic and magical symbols Continue reading An Indestructible Element in the Völkishe and Fascist Ideal

Riding the Tiger of Modernity | Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad on Julius Evola

SHAYKH ABDAL HAKIM MURAD ON JULIUS EVOLA COUNTER-CULTURE “…so Evola is a point of reference for people who are seeking an alternative, but unfortunately because of his possibly xenophobic blindspot when it came to Europe’s “third heritage”. . . .the Heritage of Islam — Gaudí’s move was definitely in the direction of the underestimated Ishmaelite Continue reading Riding the Tiger of Modernity | Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad on Julius Evola
