THOUGHTS ON THE CLASSICS, ALT-RIGHT AND MODERN THEOSOPHY In the mid-point to the last quarter of 2018, many articles were written across platforms and the internet on how the Alt-Right and Conservatives were appropriating “the Greek and Latin Classics” to lend credibility to vicious and vindictive white supremacist and Identitarian ideology.

Who can truly say, based on racial terms, and was it meant Continue reading Constantin Von Hoffmeister “Secret America”: Defining America as a Race-Based Republic

Civic Nationalism and the Linguistic Coup on Western Values

What is Nationalism? Misunderstanding lies often in our confusion of terms and theoretical frame of reference. In the subordination of concepts, “Don’t say Civic (or Ethnic) Nationalism” says Vergilivs Rex. Sympathies with Western tradition are being increasingly identified and repudiated as being indistinct from “white nationalist rhetoric.” Don’t be naive, and further divide by conflating nationalism Continue reading Civic Nationalism and the Linguistic Coup on Western Values
